Theresa May is in meltdown, Brexiteers (hard and soft) are enraged and kerflummoxed and Remainers are tearing their hair out, with Project Fear (which may well be realistic) screaming through the headlines. My impression is the great Brit public outside the Westminster bubble have detached themselves from the dog fight or snail race and are shrugging ‘whatever’, assuming it’ll shake down somehow.
Will the member states get cold feet at the last moment when they see their commerce being affected and dent the intransigence of the Brussels technocrats? Maybe or maybe not, if it threatens to undercut the raison d’etre for a members-only EU.
Mid this September to mid October look a curious mix of high-spirited elation with tr Uranus square the UK Jupiter and trine the Jupiter/Uranus; and high-tension crisis with tr Uranus opposition the Sun/Saturn midpoint.
Whatever patched together cobble-up agreement is arrived at, goes before the UK Parliament on December 18th for a decisive vote. That’s two days before tr Saturn moves to conjunct the UK Sun and conjunct the EU Sun and EU/UK composite Sun on the relationship chart, and exactly conjunct the Germany Sun. Which looks discouraging and separating.
At that point tr Pluto is just a few days past the final opposition to the UK 10th house Moon, running on the exact aspect since early November, which will certainly jack up a mood of emotional intensity about its rulership. But it’s been around since last year and hasn’t noticeably engaged too much interest to date, apart from bored irritation. Mid December to mid January there’s also a downbeat tr Pluto square the Mercury/Saturn midpoint which does suggest a degree of brooding and depression
Mid January to almost mid February looks confident, successful and exuberant with tr Pluto square the Sun/Jupiter though also stressed and nerve-stretched with tr Pluto opposition the Mars/Uranus midpoint (which could also be violent incidents).
Exactly on March 29 2019 when either it’s a hard-landing out or a fudged extension, tr Neptune is square the UK 3rd house Mercury through the following month – 3rd house ruling transport, communications, trade and neighbouring relations, all of which looks confused. March 2019 is also when the Solar Arc Moon opposes the 11th house Saturn on the UK chart for a population out of sorts with the legislature.
It then gets neurotic, uncertain and panicky from May onwards with tr Neptune square the Saturn/Node midpoint – feeling neglected, lonely and misunderstood. That’s the point when Theresa May’s Term chart really hits a downhill slide – more so than before – with tr Neptune square the Full Moon, running till late 2020.
Though on balance in general Theresa May looks on more favourable terms with the electorate than Jeremy Corbyn does. His relationship chart with the UK has a composite Mars Pluto square Saturn Uranus, which doesn’t suggest a lot of love in there as far as basic chemistry goes. But maybe he won’t last that long.
All imponderables. The real economic scrunch won’t hit till 2021.
