Ryanair’s pessimistically cautious outlook for the year appears to be accurate with 450 flights cancelled in August from strikes and more planned tomorrow in Germany. They are in a better position than some airlines, having reported record annual results with a 10% hike for last year. But they are running into headwinds with higher costs.
The Ryanair chart, 5 July 1985, is in a state of high nervous tension this year with tr Neptune square the Uranus plus a disruptive tr Uranus opposition Pluto. But 2019 looks worse. With an agitated, insecure and shocked Solar Arc Uranus opposition Mars; and Solar Arc financial Venus in a disappointing opposition to Neptune; plus tr Saturn opposition the aggressively go-ahead Sun Mars which hints at more setbacks.
Michael O’Leary, the mouthy CEO, 20 March 1961, similarly looks shell-shocked in 2019 with a dead-halt and acutely frustrating and enraging Solar Arc Mars conjunct Pluto; and a debilitating, panicky-failure Solar Arc Neptune opposition his Mars in late 2019/early 2020. He may buck up in 2020/21 with Solar Arc Jupiter conjunct his Sun.
His relationship with David Bonderman, non-exec chairman, looks jittered and jangled this year and next as well.
