Chancellor George Osborne’s latest budget has been met by resounding criticism from within his own party for cutting benefits to the disabled and helping the higher paid, and in general for punting seriously hopeful (delusional) estimates of good times ahead. One Cabinet Minister, Iain Duncan Smith, has already resigned. They are even murmurs he may have to resign/be moved which would have been unthinkable a few months back.
He was appointed Chancellor on 11 May 2010 and that chart has a topple-off-perch Solar Arc Uranus square Pluto exact at the moment. Even if he totters on, tattered but in place, his relationship with PM David Cameron was always moving into risky territory this year and next. Tr Uranus will square the composite Venus from late April this year for 12 months ahead, and worse in 2017 tr Uranus is conjunct Saturn – so tensions erupting all over the place.
David Cameron’s 2nd Term chart, 8 May 2015 12.30pm, is muddling through this year but is not destabilised until early 2017 onwards; with a bigger upheaval in 2018; though the Tory term lasts until 2020.
David Cameron’s personal chart is still labouring under tr Pluto square his Libra Sun and Solar Arc Mars this year; and sinking badly mid April to late May with tr Neptune square his Mars/Saturn midpoint; but will probably be saved by the lucky Solar Arc Jupiter conjunct his Uranus, exact in six months’ time.
Iain Duncan Smith, 9 April 1954 9.02pm Edinburgh, Scotland, who has just resigned is in a generally not-great phase with tr Saturn moving now through his 2nd house at the lowest ebb of his first quadrant. That is usually not spectacularly successful for some years. He has tr Uranus square his Uranus and conjunct his Sun, no doubt putting him in a no-compromise mood. Tr Pluto will move to oppose Uranus and square his Sun in 2017/18 – a time of considerable challenges. But he also has Solar Arc Jupiter conjunct his Pluto in fifteen months’ time; and Solar Arc Sun conjunct his Jupiter in 2018 – both of which will bless him with luck and good tidings.
