UK economy – worst fall since the crash


The UK economy moved into a sharp contraction after the Brexit stockpiling boost wore off with the pound sinking further against the dollar and euro; and UK growth having the worst showing since 2012 with the worst fall since the financial crisis in 2009.

The UK 1801 chart has tr Uranus just across the cusp and into the UK 8th house which is a classic for business finance volatility and it remains in that state until 2027, with particular turbulence from mid 2021 for a year as tr Uranus is conjunct the 8th house Mars; and again in 2024 when Solar Arc Uranus is conjunct the Mars. It’s not necessarily a complete disaster just major swings up and down.

The Bank of England chart, 27 July 1694 JC 10 am London, shows similar fluctuations – is ploughing through heavy seas until later this month and then picks up heart into September. Then down again and in a complete upheaval over the New Year with tr Uranus square the Pluto, but bouncing up again in April and May/June 2020 and on and off in patches into 2021.

Gerard Lyons, 31 March 1961, who is evidently Boris’s favourite economist and a possibility as replacement at the Bank of England, is a sunny optimist like his boss. He admits to an economic shock if there’s a no-deal but says the economy will recover from the ‘short-term’ disruption. He’s not looking quite so chipper through later this month and through most of September and October to mid November with catastrophes tripping him up; is panicked and nerve-stretched additionally over the end of October. He’ll get his mojo back and be firing on all cylinders across the New Year but there’ll be more sink-holes of some magnitude before mid 2020.

Sajid Javid, the Chancellor, is also hiccupping his way along though with less Jupiterian uplift so more down.
