I’ve learnt two important things from this election.
The first is that you should always have an understanding of the constraints and processes involved in the thing you’re considering and you need to fit the astrology around them. My forecasts for a hung parliament with Brown remaining PM – which I’ll take as a successful prediction – were based on the (somewhat naive) assumption we would know the result of how the hung parliament would fall out on Friday 7th May. My prediction should have made it clear that I was referring to the position on Friday morning.
The second lesson is stick to what the astrology is telling you and don’t get carried away with media hype. I revised my assessment of Nick Clegg following the reaction after the first leaders debate and the performance of the Lib Dems in the election is far more in line with my original assessment. Stick to what the astrology tells you.
So what happens next?
Well I have already pointed out that this election is the end of a chapter and that events of late May and June/July will be the beginning of the next one. What I haven’t pointed out is that the UK is about to have transiting Uranus opposition natal Uranus. The current situation is very reflective of that.
The new moon is on 14th May. We’re at the end of a lunar cycle. Currently – Sunday – the Moon has some very productive aspects to make. It is about to conjunct Jupiter and will have to oppose Saturn and conjuct Uranus before it leaves Pisces late this evening. This will also pick up the charts of both Cameron and Clegg. All parties will want to have a conclusion before the markets open tomorrow and these aspects almost certainly indicate some intense negotiations. I’m not sure that they’ll reach a final agreement. This may continue on for a few days, possibly until the New Moon. It may take this long to get all the pieces in place. As I said before, Mars catches up with Brown’s Pluto on 14th and it may take until then for him to physically move.
The Liberal Democrats have the new moon on their descendant. This would be a classic significator for a major new relationship. But who with?
The UK has Saturn at 23 Leo. A New Moon aspecting this point would strongly indicate a structural change, especially from Taurus, and the New Moon is in the UK 8th house, indicating collaboration (shared resources) of some sort.
So having listed all these indicators what conclusions can we draw?
Brown will remain PM until a conclusion is reached; he is required to do this by law. If no conclusions are reached today I believe they will drag on until the New Moon.
As to who will form a new government, I wouldn’t rule out Brown staying but there will be another election soon. That is certainly part of the cardinal T-Square which is about to take shape.
