france & german elections 2017


Both in France and Germany a mayor shift in policy towards the EU may occur as a result of the 2017 elections. France may be going in the direction of the UK and US. Germany may retire as an EU leader. The role of the EU may change fundamentally in the coming years.


This is a prognosis of the 2017 France elections  and the effect on its policy. This prognosis is based on the national chart of France, 5th Republic created on October 6th 1958 at 6:30 pm in Paris (Book of world horoscopes).  Keep in mind that the chart only shows potentials for certain developments and different astrologers could interpret these in a different way.

1st chart: Important is Uranus transiting the ascendant in the France national chart. We may compare this transit to what happened in the UK and US where similar transits have caused mayor changes in policy.

2nd chart: Further confirmation may be found in the progressed chart. The progressed Decendant and Ascendant are switching houses in a few years which may indicate a fundamental ‘relational’ change (of France as a nation with other nations) in the coming 2 years. These changes indicate a switch towards a more conservative perspective, from the 9th (ideologically exploring) towards the 10th (materially securing), from ‘opening up to the world’ towards ‘setting boundaries’, etc. France may be seeking relations that support this.  France may define its identity totally from an internal and historical point of view (4th), not from its ‘direct-environment’ (EU) point of view. This may of course point to a potential break with the EU as it is now.


This is a prognosis of the 2017 Germany elections  and the effect on its policy.  The national chart of Germany, set in on 23 May, 4:00 pm 1949 in Bonn (BDR chart see Book  of world horoscopes). 

Equally impactful for the EU may be a development in the progressed chart of Germany as a nation. Here an  MC-IC switch from the 11th/5th towards the 12th/6th house may indicate a redraw from its previous role in the world (since 1986) as an active and prominent leader of change among friends in the EU, as an outward going change leader for Europe seeing it as an idealistic humanist and innovative project. As if Germany retires and redraws inward until 2038 merely completing and ending a post 2nd ww development since its creation in 1949. From a German perspective the EU may become a problematic, worying place. Germany may change its EU policy from creativity and optimism toward helping and servicing.

creating a horoscope at capitol hill

Astrology has two main principles: ‘the primal importance of beginnings’ and ‘so above so below’. This has lead to the technique of horoscopes, in which the setting of the sky at the beginning of something is recorded and studied in order to understand and predict the constitution and development of something.  

The basic astrological tool for outlining how a US presidency is going to work out is the ‘presidency event chart’. This is the horoscope casted (a recording of the sky) at the moment of inauguration of the president. Astrology by principle says that this horoscope or chart puts its stance on the whole presidency event, from beginning to end.

The inauguration ritual of the 45th president on friday 20 January 2017, at noon in Capitol Hill (in Washington DC) showed me how an astrological pre-programming of this ritual may have been installed in order to pre direct all presidencies of the US succeding George Washington.

George Washington was a freemason and therefore we may assume that astrology was part of his world. In this article I will construct an analogy (thesis) how he with the aid of architects and other contributors could have shaped the inauguration ritual through astrology. Astrology may have been used here not only as a tool to understand something but also as an tool to influence something.

The inauguration ritual

DT’s inauguration showed that its setting, timing and script has been hard coded in the architectural and urban design of Capitol Hill and in American culture/law. By pre-programming this ritual all successive ‘presidency event charts’ are pre determined. These charts are all casted at Noon in Capitol Hill and since 1937 always on Jan 20th. The modern history of US presidencies has become a pre-determined history of successive ‘presidency event charts’.

Interesting is that the inaugurations may have been influenced by a possible ambition to predetermine presidencies for centuries in advance by ritual, but also by a possible intention to define and execute this ritual in an occult way. This may have had significant impact on US policy in terms of the direction of policy and its intention. The programming of rituals is quite common in the world of religion and many nations have embraced these as state rituals. However in the world of astrology (which isn’t a religion) it is quite unique that it may have been used to shape a state ritual and that a nation could have adopted it as an occult practice.

The ingredients of the ritual are:

  • Horizontal composition of the setting: the orientation of the Capitol building facing west, the public facing east. In astrology the East is the position of the leader and the West is the position of ‘the other’. By placing the president and public this way symbolic reference is made to an archaic order of the world and cosmos. In the archaic order world and cosmos are synchronized and connected through ritual. The idea is that by synchronization these natural forces may predestinate a person in this position to be a leader. As if in the unconscious of the people (the public) a feeling arizes that the person placed in the east has been authorized by a higher power to be their leader. A horizontal spatial composition is made to invoke these feelings.

Capital-Hill-horizontal-composition-i Capital-Hill-horizontal-composition-ii

  • Vertical composition of the setting: the building placed on a elevation, staging the inauration before the public. The symbolism of the shape of the Capitol building dome. Here reference is made to the hierarchical order of things in our consciousness. This order is made out of 6 layers vertically, with Sun/Moon (6) on top, downwards  Mercury (5), Venus (4), Mars (3), Jupiter (2)  and last Saturn (1) below. The Dome of the Capitol building symbolically references Sun/Moon, hence its round shape. Here we can further reference the spatial vertical composition of the building and site (the vertical layers) to consciousness levels in the body (chacras). The Dome symbolizes the position of the head and Sun (6), the stairs symbolizes the position of the throat (leader) and Mercury (5), the stage and its half circular stands for the leader’s associations in the government, the hearth and Venus (4), Together, position 6, 5, 4 stands for nobility or the higher half of the social order or consciousness, or that which is staged as a symbolic theatrical play before the world to watch. The Mall stands for the public and the masses, or the lower half of consciousness or of social order, symbolically related to 3 (midrif), 2 (belly), 1 (crotch). The Itjing would make here a division between the ruler (6,5,4) and the people (3,2,1). The position on stage where the oath is taken is the exact mirror point between these two worlds (ruler-people). What happens here is basically the same as in the East-West positioning, a worldly order (ruler-the people) is made to synchronize with a cosmic order (higher-lower half of consciousness) by a vertical spatial composition. Invoking in the unconsciousness of the people a feeling of natural hierarchy. As if the person standing on the stage is authorized by a higher power to represent a higher level of consciousness.

The other thing that is happening here is the ruler ‘mirroring’ the people.  As said previously, the postion of the new president on the stage or geomantic circle is the exact mirror point between these two worlds, both horizontally and vertically. The upper half (6,5,4) mirrors the lower half (3,2,1), the east mirrors the west, the self mirrors ‘the other’, the ruler mirrors the people. This is an ancient ceremonial act which enables the people to identify with the ruler and vice versa, the ruler reflects the people as a way of showing he identifies with them. As if both entities meet here and interlock for a period of time into one event.

  • Actors and setting: the placement of the different parties on the stage (new president, priests, old presidents, judges, etc). This is a rather technical explanation, but here we go: Here reference is made to a geomantic circle. A full geomantic circle symbolically represents the constitution of the world. What is relevant here is that it consists of two parts, half a circle of the ruler (east) and half a circle of the people or ‘the other’ (west). Much more can be said about the division of this circle. The circular stage which makes reference to this geomantic circle is cut in half by a line running north-south, separating the public and the government. The remaining half circel (180 deg) is further divided in two by the east-west axis.

The geomantic circle is used in astrology under a different name called ‘the houses’. The half circular stage is divided in segments (slices), these segments constitute the houses. By positioning oneselves in one of these houses one ritually enacts its script and meaning. Experiential astrology works with this technique to bring into direct experience the workings of the geomantic circle, which is embedded in the horoscope. The point I want to make here is that the new president is located on the stage in what is astrologically known as the first house (north of the E-W axis), while the old presidents  and priests are located on the stage in what is astrologically known as the 12th house (south of the E-W axis). The first house symbolizes the beginnings, the start of a new development, while the 12th house symbolizes the end of a development, the retirement and spirituality. The judges are located on stage in what is astrologically known as the 1oth house and represent the congress and senate, the executive branch of government. What happens here is basically the same as in the previous sections that a spatial order (here circular) is syncronized with a cosmological order.  The aim is to cast the person standing in certain position on the geomantic circle (the stage) into a certain role by unconscious impact of natural forces. Here the new president being casted in the role of initiator, beginner, newcomer and leader because he is spatally positioned on a certain place in the geomatic circle which is astrologically called the first house. The old presidents are casted in the role of retirees by natural forces because their place on the geomatic circle is called the twelfth house. This spatial ordering and positioning enacts and brings into experience the transfer of power from old to new with the help of the cosmos (which emerges from our unconscious).

  • Script: the decent of the president-elect walking down the stairs to the stage below to be inaugurated. This takes the previous spatial symbolic invocations a step further, here reference is made to the decent of the higher power/consciousness Sun (6) to the worldly realm in the position of the ruler Mercurius (5) and Venus (4). As if the president-elect has a Sun-god status and is coming down to the cognitive world of the intellect and senses to share his warmth, wisdom and fortune with the world. This theatrical script is a symbolic reference to an archaic Sun worshipping ritual. This theatrical script is a ritual enactment of an archaic experience, in which the Sun descended on men and drove away the darkness. This experience deeply embedded in the human unconscious is called upon.

What follows is the taking of the oath by the President. This is the climax of this ritual. After taking the oath the decent goes further downwards to 3,2,1, or fully into ‘the other’ half of the geomantic circle, or fully into the west, or fully into the domain of the people. The decent from position 6 to position 1 is completed by a tour driving through the Mall, waving and shaking hands with the crowd in the Mall.

  • Timing of the script: the timing of the inauguration taking the oath exactly at noon. Here symbolic reference is made to the position which the Sun always occupies in the horoscope exactly at noon, which is in its apex in the south, or the 10th house. The 10th house symbolizes the executive branch of the government (congress and senate), the Sun at noon occupies the 10th house and symbolizes therefore the head of state being positioned as leader of the executive branch. By taking the oath exactly at noon a ‘presidency event chart’ (horoscope) is created in which the new president (Sun) is casted in the role of ‘head of state’. To invoke impact of natural forces on the role of the new president a time based order (instead of a spatial order) is imposed on the ritual. In this way the ritual is synchronized with a cosmological order. An other way of saying is that to bring into experience the role of the new president as ‘head of state’ the oath is taken exactly at noon because at that moment the Sun is at its peak in the south and in the 10th house. In our unconsciousness these connections are being made.

  • The timing of the script: the date of the inauguration on the 20th of January (since 1937). Here symbolic reference is made to the position of the Sun on Januari 20th in the zodiac, which is always somewhere near 1 degree Aquarius on that date. In all presidency event charts since 1937 the Sun is positioned in that position. This means that since 1937 the US presidency has approached its leadership from an Aquarian perspective and that the ‘head of state’ acts mainly under the influence of Uranus:  renewal, sudden change, revolution, anarchy, autocracy, radicalism, new ideologies, modern techniques / more than any other planet has characteristics derived from its association with mundane affairs / reforms, heavy industry, new technology, and all those who promote such ideas and events / associated with uranium and nuclear energy / has a general influence over rioting and outbreaks of political tension / right-wing political ideas, free-market enterprise / refugees, imigrants
  • There are probably more aspects to this ritual that can be related to an astrological influencing, but these are main ones.


  • How to qualify this technique of suspending a spontaneous emergence of time, keeping the presidencies in limbo? That’s difficult because it depends on your perspective, it certainly breaks with a more global tradition of state religion. In my view this is an interesting experiment because I am interested in astrology. Basically it’s there because it’s an unique US tradition. I have no doubt that all these geomantic/occult/astrological concepts are somehow known in certain circles in Washington, so there may be some form of transparency and public evaluation happening here. The fact that it’s in principle nonpartisan is also contributing to the neutrality of the ritual.
  •  How long will this still go on, what is its future?  The ritual was installed in a time when Pluto was in Aquarius somewhere in the 18th century during and after the American revolution. Now after some 2,5 centuries later Pluto will return back to this original point in the zodiac making a full round.  A Pluto return will herald a new time so somewhere between 2024 and 2034 a new beginning for the US presidency will emerge. Pluto transforms things through experiences of death and rebirth so astrologically there is some foundation for the current buzz on social media that DT will be the last American president in his line. DT may derail his presidency so bad (perhaps deliberately) that the whole thing may have to go away to make place for something new.
  • On what basis are inauguration dates changed, what are the consequences in terms of politics or what is the impact on US policy? One could say that a presidency event chart which is fixed even before the election takes place will influence the elections. One could argue that such predeterment chart picks the presidential candidate who is mostly aligned with it.  If we look at the presidency event chart which was planned to be created on January 20 2017, at noon in Washington DC, it was already clear that HRC was an unlikely candidate. She wouldn’t fit in such a chart.

Experimenting with different dates would be an interesting thing. What if a new president was given a choice on which date to be inaugurated, thereby influencing the horoscope of his presidency (the president event chart)? Would Uranus be more republican and Saturn more like the democratic party? Probably there is lot here that has the potential to influence White house policy.



the us presidency and donald trump

Together with the previous ‘brexit posting’ this posting on the US presidency and Donald Trump (DT) gives you an overview of a series of changes in the western world in the coming 8 years.

Important for what’s going to happen in the next 4-8 years is the so called ‘presidency event chart’ which is created at the moment of inauguration in 2017, 20 jan at noon in Washington DC. Astrology by principle says that this chart puts its stance on the whole presidency event, from beginning to end. However, keep in mind that the chart only shows potentials for certain developments and different astrologers could interpret these in a different way.


DT’s presidency may be benificial for the US itself, domestically. However its foreign policy may fail to rally support in the world unable to handle a series of global crises piling up. Possibly escalating into something bigger this presidency may be compared to a period (Pluto in Capricorn) just before the French and American revolution. In DT’s presidency event chart we may see the following to happen:

  • 2017 on: A quack mire political environment for DT and his presidency emerges and expands during his first and possible second term.
  • 2017 – 2019: DT focuses on domestic issues and on reshaping shared assets internationally.
  • 2020 on: DT focuses on foreign policy from now on. A complete transformation of the role of the US in the world into a leadership style that may not fit a western democracy. The administration may get lost and unpredictable, US democracy may be under threat.
  • 2021: a possible ‘usexit event’ of NATO and the attempt to start an US-Russian alliance. The EU becomes under pressure and the western alliance becomes unable to handle an emerging global crisis.
  • 2024: a possible threat to the head of state. Pluto enters Aquarius: revolutions.


The US presidency

DT presidency event chart 2017, 20 jan at noon in Washington DC

The first chart shows DT being inaugurated as president. From that moment on his presidency may develop according to a scenario that is preprogrammed by this presidency event chart. What are its basic characteristics?

Saturn 8th/Sag This presidency may focus on shared resources with foreign countries related to international finance, multinational and transnational corporations. To govern with authority and tradition, representing reactional forces and the fear which resists change. Land-owners, farmers, mines, coal and industries connected to metals and minerals may dominate this approach.

Domestically excessive mortality rates may emerge related to the repressive and controlling forces in the state: the police.

Pluto 9th/Cap Foreign action and relations may be highly transformative, based on violence, self destruct impulses, all things hidden and secretive in a society, as a psychic outbreak of the unconscious. This placement may be explained both ways, foreign action and relations as the bringer of  death and rebirth (of/in other nations), death and rebirth (of/in the US) through foreign action and relations. Foreign relations as threat to the presidency. Purging and elimination as a strategy in foreign relations. Corruption and manipulation of international law and the legal system. Obsessive focus on religion.

Jupiter 6th/Lib  Although this may sound unlikely astrologically there is support for the expectation that DT may improve or may be very beneficial for all national services, the health service, public health, health workers and the health of society in general. Beneficial for the working class, the national services: army, navy and civil service as servants of the country. Daily life for the common people in the US may improve significantly.

Transits: the second and third chart show important events during DT’s presidency.

Second chart: Dec 2020: transit Jup/Sat conjunct 10th/Aquarius This is an important transit event for every person/company/nation in the world and marks the start of a new occupational/business/economical period for the coming 20 years.  This transit may define the mood and opportunity of a possible second term of this presidency. A new economical paradigm for the next 20 years may emerge.

This global transit event coincides in the presidency event chart with a conjunct on its natal Sun 10th/Aqu, and conjunct Pluto 9th/Cap con MC. Combined with these additional influences it may mark the rise of a new awareness of the leadership role in the world of the US. Supported by this positive wave however its role in the world may change in exercising power through violence, not through democracy and legal means. This transit could mean a complete transformation (death and rebirth) of the role of the US in the world.

Third chart: 2 years later on dec 2022: transit Uranus Asc  This Uranus transit may introduce a type of ‘us-exit event’ from NATO tradition or from its traditional partner network in the west (a similar transit lead to Brexit). DT may see himself fit to oppose anything, it could even mean disruptive and iconoclastic behavior through actions against traditional western partners or NATO allies, implicitly dismantling NATO, perhaps the US may position itself as a relative outsider to NATO. In the ACG chart below we may notice the Uranus/MC line on Europe, locating the place of its maximum disruptive impact.

acg-chart-presidency-dtacg map US presidency

This could be the start of a US military cooperation with Russia, an US-Russian alliance. Geopolitically it could be interpreted as a logical and necessary move to bind Russia into partnership in order to weaken China.

The question is whether Russia is available for this scenario, teaming up with an impulsive and untrustworthy partner could strain its relations with its prime oil and gas customers the EU and China. However, the US oil industry together with Russia’s may become the most important stakeholders behind DT’s foreign policy.

One could speculate that ultimately, since both models EU and NATO have been declared more or less obsolete by the UK and US, the EU may just break off from its ‘western collectivity’ like an iceshelf. DT may perceive the EU as his biggest source of opposition because the EU may hold on to its western values, to the climate agreement, international treaties, a multi polar world view, globalisation, etc. The EU may not go along with the new game rules set by DT’s presidency’s foreign policy. This would be an opportunity for China to help break up the western alliance and move the EU away from the US. We may expect the EC to visit Beijing soon.

transit Pluto conj natal Sun, 2024  This transit could mean a threat (Pluto) to the head of state of the US (Sun) by foreign secret powers (natal Pluto/9th). This will create hostile relations between this presidency and other nations (Scorpio 7th house cusp). That would be a mainstream mundane astrological explanation of this transit.

A possible alternative explanation could point to impeachment because of illegal foreign action of this presidency, leading to corruption and abuse of this presidency, causing all partners to turn their backs on DT, which is a more likely explanation considering DT’s mixed interests. At the height of its power this presidency runs the risk of being stripped bare.

A possible third explanation may focus on the federal government as a whole (Sun/10th house), experiencing a host of crises within its foreign allies network. A foreign policy that may not come of the ground may alter the role of the US in the world. Leaving the western coalition in disarray, unable to handle international crises piling up.

We may compare this transit in the US presidency chart with a similar transit in the EU chart (Pluto transit conj Sun/4th). Since 2008 the EU is in a state of permanent crisis which all somehow attack its interior, its togetherness and the privacy of the EU: the financial, banking, euro and Greek crisis, the Snowdon, Ukranian, refugee, Turkish and lately added the brexit and perhaps a NATO crisis. All of them are more or less unsolved and will have impact for decades.

A Pluto conj Sun/10th transit in the US presidency chart may have a similar impact on the position and role of the US in the world. It won’t transform its interior but its exterior presence and international coalition which may become riddled with existential crises. This may start in jan 2021 when Pluto enters the 10th house: obsessively controlling, testing, purging and eliminating everything that is perceived obsolete or weak. Entering a Plutonic world very intense and driven by survival instincts this presidency may set itself up as the winner, proclaiming ‘the winner takes all’ and ‘never mind how’. 

This transit could very well be the up make of a global revolution when Pluto enters Aquarius in 2024 introducing the time of bottom-up revolutions disrupting traditional government structures. This may be a response to the current period (Pluto in Capricorn) giving governments (like DT’s presidency) virtually unlimited top-down power. In this new Aquarius period we may see technology emerge which gives unprecedented freedom to the individual. This in turn may lead to a next period in 2044 when Pluto enters Pisces in which the world may fall into the global chaos of Neptune who dissolves every structure.

DT natal chart

How about DT’s personal natal chart, does that somehow support these projections?

DT natal chart (1st chart)

What is DT – being a fairly liberal Manhattenite – doing with all these ultra conservative cabinet members around him who rejected him in the first place? And why are these types teaming up with him? Is DT not the embodiment of a free-moral and socially unadapted iconoclastic urbaneness, totally un provincial? DT is a real Mercurian type, meaning that there are always two persons, two faces. So why team up with like-minded people when you could have multiple agenda’s instead?

(1st chart) Uranus conjunct Sun One could argue that DT is probably thé change project that may transform the federal government in Washington. Did his security advisor not vow to destroy the Washington establishment once and for all? Perhaps the fact that such a security advisor could enter government at all is a sign that the line of presidencies since its installation in 1789 has run its course and needs fundamental renewal. The US democratic system as we know it may be seriously under threat. After 2024 nothing will be the same again in DC, that may be DT’s overal strategy in which everything is made to serve that purpose alone. Currently the US could be in the ‘unfreeze’ phase of this change project. We may be witnessing a Plutonian change manager with the following characteristics: purging and elimination, survival, power and control, darkness, the underworld, cycle of death and rebirth.

It looks like that all his cabinet members are pretty much the opposite of what he stands for. He may use his presidential power to explore his own free-moral and socially unadapted agenda, toying around in a glamorous way with those ‘reactionary opportunists’ (in his view) around him, embarrassing them. DT may become even more unpopular in the GOP then he is already, this may drive DT to even more disruptive action. However, the question is how this multiple agenda and multiple faced management style playing out everyone and everything may work during his presidency considering the following:

(2nd chart) 2017, feb: transit Neptune 7th house ingress   DT’s backing by members of his cabinet, foreign partners, business partners and even his own family may not be what it seems. It seems that this president may not have any normal backing at all. DT’s partners are not what he thinks they are, all his relations become shrouded in a fog and are illusionary.

He may be dwelling in a glamorous but treacherous environment full of glamour, but deluding, disillusioned, hypocritical and double dealing contractual relations and partners. Neptune in particular points to relations with the oil industry which could play a major role here. Neptune could be a real muddler here leading DT into a quack mire, but also leading him to create through his own actions a world in which nothing is what it seems. The truth may not matter anymore. It marks disillusions, confusion that leads to scandals or war.

impact on EU

As a consequence of Neptune involvement here like the brexit initiative to depart from the EU a hypothetical ‘usexit initiative’ to distance itself from NATO or from traditional western allies as a foreign policy may possibly end up in a quack mire of impossibilities and misjudgments. The whole thesis of a US-EU separation may just be fiction because it may be culturally impossible. In the end it may be DT’s administration itself which is lost in the fog. This is where the real danger may start.

The DT administration (like the brexit administration) may estrange itself from reality. Seeing their policies towards the EU stranded both current UK and US administrations may align their efforts and a truly memorable time for the EU may arise. The UK may be using the US to facilitate its brexit initiative and vice versa. Pretty extreme scenarios may be explored here. For hard core brexiteers (like BoJo and the Tories) DT may be an opportunity too good to miss, leveraging the impact of DT’s foreign policy towards the EU for their own benefit and vice versa. This is the kind of muddling we may expect following Neptune in DT’s chart.

We could expect a real paranoid scenario here like the EU being manipulated and pressured through al sorts of unorthodox schemes to fit into the perceived and aspired global pecking order threatening its privacy. One example for instance could be that a US/Russian cooperation may be set up to interfere in the brexit process, undermining the EU’s democratic and legalistic framework. The potential is there because the brexit chart solicits this, setting up the UK as midwife for external powers to interfere.

(3rd chart) 2020 march, transiting Uranus 9th house ingress   The first two years of this presidency DT may focus mostly on domestic issues and reshaping shared values and assets with other nations. From 2020 on DT may switch his attention towards foreign relations permanently. This may dominate his work for the rest of his first and possible second term as president.

Natally DT’s Mercury Tau/10th means he may just be a real estate investor. However with Uranus transiting through Taurus/9th we shouldn’t be surprised DT trying to adopt a more disruptive style with a wider focus. Taurus means retreating (couldn’t care less mentality) or aggressively charging without much in between like ‘communicating’. All that in an intuitive, shooting from the hip, disruptive executive style seeking confirmation again and again of being the outsider and maverick (natal Uranus conjunct natal Sun Gem/10th). This may be DT’s main psychological inclination seeking identity. We may expect that those partners who grant him this may become his best friends, outsider among outsiders. It’s not difficult to see who may and who may not.

The presidency seen as DT’s personal development:

  • Progressions: 4th and 5th chart. Both charts show progressions in DT’s natal chart. 4th chart: the progressed Asc/Dec axis in June 2015, marking DT’s annoucement of running for presidency and the 5th chart: a progressed MC/IC axis in Jan 20 2017 marking DT’s inauguration. Both axis are changing houses and this implies great changes are happening in DT’s life. Both axis are switching houses marking major changes in his social role, social relations, social power and social identity. These progressions somehow demystify what is going on and put all previous predictions in this posting into a more plausible context and perspective.

This 2 year period is a monumental change for DT and we shouldn’t underestimate the impact it will have on his personality and the challenges it may cause psychologically. The 4th chart on the day of his annoucement means the switch from seeing the world through the lens of personal possessions toward seeing it from a communication point of view. A switch in focus from dealing with ‘values of the other’ (money) towards dealing with ‘ideologies of the other’ or everything foreign. The 5th chart on the day of his inauguration means a switch in focus from a ‘materially’ focused occupation towards retirement or change in focus from paid to voluntary work or from the mundane towards imaginary work (art,  politics). This axis shift means also a change in what you bring to the table, a focus from creativity and self expression towards service and humbleness. So it seems that great learning and adaptation may be ahead for DT, being suddenly in a world which has turned up side down.

The new psychological infrastructure that emerged by these progressions is different and demands adaptation. DT’s intentions have not been changed by these progressions: to stay hidden and to define a world from behind the scenes (defining social identity), to innovate and disrupt (defining social power), to be affectionate (defining social relations) and to be self centered and contented (defining social role in the world). However the stage for exploring these intentions has changed: DT has been drawn out his personal environment which he owned into the neighbourhood where ownership doesn’t count. Defining a social identity through possessions and ownership is over. DT is drawn onto the stage of service and humbleness where creativity and self expression aren’t considered workable. Defining a social power through self aggrandisement or branding is no longer possible. DT is confronted to handle a world stage which is non-intimate and where only competing concepts exists. Defining social relations based on what is shared is no longer possible. Last: DT is drawn in the ‘area of dissolvement’ in which friends, collegues, social groups don’t exists but only sacrifice, renunciation, etc. Defining a social role based on befriended networks is no longer possible. 

The riddles or seemingly incompatibilities that occure in DT’s life through this new psychological infrastructure are caused by a changed relation between DT’s intentions and the new social stage where these intentions may be explored:  for instance, how to deal with ‘seeing the world through the lens of’ communication while doing so with the old intention to stay hidden (prog Asc Sco/3rd: defining social identity)? How to deal with working through servicing and humbleness while having the old intention to innovate and disrupt (prog IC Aqu/6th: defining social power)? How to deal with others’ or foreign ideology and religions while having the old intention to be affectionate and indulging (prog Dec Tau/9th: defining social relations)? How to deal with those in need while having the old intention to be self centered and contented (prog Mc Leo/12th)?

How may DT handle these changes, or stating the question in astrological terms: how are these new houses ruled?

  • Social identity: DT’s social identity may not improve. (3rd ruled by Mars/12th) The Asc shift into the 3rd house may make DT look to others as a potential violent and secretive person who may conspire against others and as someone who may not to be trusted preaching hate and division. His image may be the problem and DT’s communication may have to be supervised completely. This could support his intention to stay hidden.
  • Social relations: The Dec shift into the 9th house means seeking relations internationally. This will be softened and structured by a Venusian and Saturnine approach (9th ruled by Venus/11th) seeking harmony and authority. However Venus/Saturn in Lobster could create xenophobic sentiments, Saturn is easily scared and takes no risks here protecting the private domain in the way DT chooses to see this. DT may set borders here for outsiders while reaching out in an extreme sense to what he sees his kind. This may support his intention to be effectionate in his relations.
  • Social role: The MC shift into the 12th adapting his ‘role in the world’ as president to the house of dissolvement introduces an association with the mythological role of Mercury as the psychopomp (12th is ruled by his Gemini Sun) escorting newly deceased souls from Earth to the afterlife. One could argue that DT may have the unstoppable urge to carry the constitution or parts of it, or parts of the US government, or parts of US foreign relations to its grave. This may be his main goal. There is more astrological support for this argument:

The constitution was installed in a time when Pluto was in Aquarius somewhere in the 18th century just after the American revolution. Now after some 2,5 centuries Pluto will return back to this original point in the zodiac making a full round.  A Pluto return will herald a new time so somewhere between 2024 and 2034 a new beginning for the US presidency will emerge. Pluto transforms things through experiences of death and rebirth so astrologically there is some foundation for the current buzz on social media that DT will be the last American president in his line. DT may derail his presidency so bad (perhaps deliberately) that the whole thing may have to go away to make place for something new.

This urge to disrupt and clean up may isolate him but supports his intentions to be contented and self centered in his worldly role.

  • Social power: DT’s IC shift into the 6th house ruled by Uranus is triggering ideas beyond the normal. This may point to the disruption and innovation of all government services and the working class. It may point to DT’s disruptive, iconoclastic and innovating style of servicing. This urge will support DT’s intention to be disruptive and innovating in his way of working. Both social aspects (role and power) will be empowered greatly and work coherently together giving concepts like serving for your country, altruism, service and humbleness a whole new meaning.
  • Progressed Moon conjunct Pluto on Januari 15, 2018


In 1991/1992 Trump went bankrupt 2 times because of amongst other things the Taj Mahal project. At that time we saw a Moon progression conjuncting Pluto in his chart. On Januari 15, 2018 we will see a similar situation in the chart. We may anticipate real difficulties for DT beginning next year. However DT has such strong astrological support for his presidency in Washington that he probably will make it through.


What we are looking at may be nothing less than a revolution forced upon the American people and international community. As with brexit this presidency event could also be labelled a ‘Shock doctrine’ event as Naomi Klein has outlined.


a scenario for brexit

How to play into the brexit process as a blogger, journalist, lobbyist, policy maker or politician? The first thing you would want to know is how does a possible brexit scenario look like. In this posting I will analyze the motives and people behind the brexit event and delineate a brexit scenario which may unfold in the coming years. Fiction, pure speculation or not, it may lead to novel ideas and perhaps help you creating yours.

By studying the brexit astrological chart we may foresee the nature and development of the brexit process which may take up to 2020 to complete. This is the event chart of the brexit voting on June 23 2016, 07:00 BST London 51N30, 00W10. 07:00 BST marks the decision event’s starting time and London as the symbolic centre of the UK marks the place of this event. We use the Placidus and Equal house systems.

Astrology by principle says that the chart puts its stance on the whole event. However, keep in mind that the chart only shows potentials for certain developments and different astrologers could interpret these in a different way. The big question is, was this chart elected? Meaning: was the moment of the referendum voting deliberately chosen in order to create a brexit chart that would deliver a certain required effect? It is interesting to know whether a certain Tory group has used astrology to pre-fabricate the brexit event, possibly intending all the subsequent effects I have described here? This creates an underlying suspense that could make reading this scenario forecast really worthwhile…

1. Message: issue creation (back)

Delineation of the chart. First we analyze what type of message may have been broadcasted by the brexit event. Second we address who may be part of the real stakeholder group and what their hidden strategy may be.

Moon Aqu/7th chart ruler: The event is about a participative and detached way of expression of mass opinion on foreign affairs and international treaties. It denotes how to organize the opinion of the common people, the crowds and the population as a whole on the relation with other countries in a democratic, sociable and innovative way.

Sun Can/12th – squ Mc: The event is motivated by feelings of being imprisoned as a sovereign nation, creating feelings of vulnerability. The event may feel as a self protected move to safeguard a national identity and a centre of power from diffusing and from secret enemies abroad. It may be a move against agents of foreign nations that seemed to exercise a hidden power over the authority of the nation. To fulfill a need to belong by pleading allegiance (of the cabinet and prime minister) to a common authority and heritage as a response to the feeling of alienation created by an institutional authority (EU). A national expression of seeking inner emotional security in an estranged environment, as the EU may be experienced as a confined institute and as a place of isolation and subversion, as a place of secret societies and parties. The call for a referendum envisions a different role for UK in the world, symbolized by the prime minister and cabinet, which is both challenging and asserting its self interest and role in the world. The UK is not a team player here, it shows great will power and activity leaving no consideration for the interest of others which of course may lead to conflicts.

Ven Can/12th – squ Mc: The event is an emotional get together, to focus on all those things for people that makes it pleasant to stay together, and perhaps also as a means to express a possible felt contrast between the British and the continental culture. The event can be seen as a democratic showcase for the state to function without repression, to expose and counteract to what it may have experience itself within the confinement of the EU institutional context. The event can also be seen as a manifestation for cultural and artistic values that make up the British identity, again to place this in contrast with a supposedly experienced subversive impact by an institutional influence. The call for a referendum may be a passionate war on values, creating a bonding experience in the UK and to both challenge and assert its current self image.

Mars Sco/5th – trine Chiron Pis/9th (conj Mc) – trine Asc: The event marks intense and uncompromising industrial disputes within the context of the national economy and about the role of London as financial center. A secret war may be going on in the House of Lords and diplomatic service right now. This dispute may point to a more symbolical level. The event may show a secret but collective need of the British people to have an enemy, for instance a supra national authority like the EU as a representation of globalization and/or of WWII traumas. Psychologically the event may mean the enjoyment of defending the nation state, based on the desire to share at a very deep level in order to achieve intense personal attachments and emotional enjoyment. The event may catalyze the feeling that you as a person count and that you are a citizen within a nation. This may resonate with a global trend to retract from globalism.

This event symbolizes the undertaking of a pilgrimage, a ritual journey of healing to a sacred place. The event unravels a deeply passionate zeal which longs to devote us to something. The UK may however experience difficulty following this wave of enthusiasm and in following this vision, others may have difficulty to share their sense of the meaning of things. Brexit as a promise to set things straight between the UK and the EU could easily lead to an even deeper disillusion about foreign relations. The British public (leave) may feel deeply disappointed and betrayed in the end by this ‘self created bargain’, it may not deliver anything. Chiron indicates that this event may become a ‘self sacrificing act’. In the end it may be other countries in the EU or the EU itself who are healed by brexit leaving the UK seemingly empty handed and hurt, paying the price for having been the agent of this healing process. It may lead the UK to real understanding and completely redefine its image it pretends to others and the nations self image. So this may turn out to be a truly heroic time for the UK, to let the old vision of its role in the world die in order to let a new vision of its role in the world be reborn.

2. People: the stakeholder group (back)

Ura Ari/10th – squ Asc: On the other end of the spectrum this event may reflect the daring, impatience and independent role of the ruling class in the UK and its forceful push for renewal, sudden change, revolution, anarchy, autocracy, radicalism, new ideologies, modern techniques. The event reflects the government expressing their right wing (Tory) political ideas on free market enterprises and individualism, to counteract a more collective and federal view of an institutional authority (EU). The event marks political revolution and economic change in national aspirations like as if testing ones strength, as an affirmation of the national reputation and how it wants to be seen by its neighbours.

This revolutionary initiative is accompanied by social unrest created by the huge influx of new immigrants (of which 50% is non-eu) in the UK. These numbers lead the government to challenge the principle of free movement of people within the EU as a way of motivating the referendum and to rally enough support. (Immigration is a non-issue because it could easily have been avoided)  The referendum may be a struggle to change and assert the way the UK as a people is looking at the world.

Pluto Cap/6th: The event may represent that healing principle which forces a collective, as an organic whole, to experience violent phases of self healing, in order to become well again. The event could be experienced as if it were a psychic outbreak from the unconscious with epidemic proportions. The event could become an authoritatively managed metamorphosis of all public and national services, political institutions, trade unions and especially the working class in the UK. The event may turn into a violent and abusive change of all aspects of daily life (workers and employees generally, the employed classes and their political institutions such as socialist parties  and trade unions) in the UK, carried out in the dark or hidden from public view, by some political underground.

In the ‘Shock Doctrine, The Rise of Disaster Capitalism’ by Naomi Klein we may find an explanation of what is going on. It would mean that brexit is not the real goal but only used/created as a big unfreeze (a disruption and destabilization of society). This creates a gap in the normal order, a window of opportunity and time frame which enables the ruling party to make ‘the necessary changes’. These changes would be impossible to make otherwise. In reality brexit may be just a way of bypassing the system by some hidden political group taking care of their own interests. This can’t be an international business related group because they all voted against brexit, who then are these people? The chart points to a possible group in the House of Lords and diplomatic service. We don’t really know what their motives are, but they couldn’t be economically motivated.

This doesn’t mean that benefitting certain groups economically may not happen, these measures may come in through the back door so to speak. We may already know who the beneficiaries will be, probably not the working class. Following the analogy a step further, the strategy would be to use harsh EU regulatory consequences of a brexit to introduce counter measures (like a reduction on corporate tax) in order to ‘save’ the economy. The question next is which brexit model would facilitate their wish list of counter measures best, which brexit model must be negotiated in order to create max return in the form of counter measures that benefits some group? We may assume that this wish list has already been submitted at this point in time (oct 2016). Now it may be up to the negotiators to select the best brexit model to make the introduction of the desired counter measures possible.

3. Way.  How to campaign: the shaping of the public debate (back)

The mutable grand cross (red square) Mer Gem/11th – Nep Pis/9th – Sat Sag/5th – Jup Vir/3rd.

(a) The chart shows a uniquely configurated public debate which is organized so that no one may agree with each other, it is impossible to arrive at some conclusion.  The debate about the image the UK pretends to others and the nations self image seems to be caught up in a multi polar discussion between media, government and political institutions, religion, philosophy, priests, bankers, aristocracy and higher classes, the church, the legal system, publishers, academic educational system. All these different parties are pushing their incompatible arguments and visions. The mutable grand cross may create a type of thinking and communication that actively seeks opposition and conflict.

(b) The second point we may learn from the chart is that the public debate may not be able to touch on the relevant issues, the public may be caught in pseudo arguments. All communication of the public media, government and political institutions (House of Commons) about brexit excludes the brexit event’s main stakeholder group (Uranus)? Public scrutiny of what is really going on may be lacking.

(c) The third point this chart shows is that the image the UK pretends to others and the nations self image merges with feelings of imprisonment and the need for emotional security (Nep Pis/9th tri Sun/Venus Can/12th). This may not help a rational debate, instead this may lead to delusions and subversion. 

The mutable grand cross effecting the public debate and the referendum itself is the most critical element in the chart. The debate seems to drive people apart, may introduce all sort of pseudo arguments and may be motivated irrationally. This will go on in the years ahead. It seems to render both government and the public impotent. If you ever would want to bypass the system this may be the way to do it. First take out democratic institutions through a referendum and next take out public opinion by shaping the public debate like the chart indicates.

4. People: the stakeholder group context: the UK (back)

What are the real reasons why (still present tense) this supposedly hidden political group has initiated such a scenario (with 20 years of prep)? What strategy would necessitate this intervention? For us to further research that question we would have to look on a higher scale, at the chart of the UK as a country.

 chart of the UK

UK chart: The first chart (1) shows the founding chart of England, the coronation of William I, Dec 25 1066 in London. In the second and third chart we may see signs related to the brexit event. In the 3rd chart we may see a clear parallel event, the Uranus transit on the Ascendant marks the triggering of the brexit event. The 2nd chart, about the Uranus progression conjunct Sun which is active from 1800 on until the end of this century, may be linked to all revolutions and innovations in British society. Possibly accompanied by rioting and outbreaks of political tension, political revolutions, economic change, strikes, political dissidents, wars (where these represent a breakdown of order). This may be the worldly expression symbolized by the Uranus progression conjunct Sun, putting the British in the role of innovator, rebel, iconoclast and outsider internationally.

This may lead to the idea that perhaps the ‘Shock Doctrine’ has a long history in the UK. There may be a long term trend in British foreign policy, touching any foreign relation (as with the EU) in an Uranian way mostly for inland political purposes. This may have become basic strategy in UK politics. If we look at the history of the Tories since 1832 we may see a parallel pattern correlated to this Uranian influence on British foreign policy. Perhaps the conclusion is that the Tory movement as a whole is symbolized by the Uranus progression in the UK chart. We may or should perhaps find confirmation of this in the role of Boris Johnson, a personality with certain Uranian traits emerging as foreign secretary and propagator of the brexit event.

5. People: the stakeholder group context: about the UK-EU relationship (back)

UK-EU composite and synastric charts

UK chart & EU chart: The analogy between the chart of the UK and the role of the Tories is quite suggestive. Even more surprising is the suggestion that the EU-UK relation is one of positive mutual identification. The single problem between the UK and the EU however is simply the conflict between need for individual freedom (UK) and the family (EU). There’s no indication in these charts of a deeper cultural divide between the UK and EU because most placements are good and add to a positive relationship. Clarifying this further would be important for the coming restructuring of the UK-EU relationship. In this relationship two placements stand out:

Sun conj Sun composite (chart 1/2): The UK strongly identifies with the EU and is very much alike in important ways. An innate appreciation and understanding of one another’s essence exists between them, and this is vitalizing for both. However, they share the same flaws and weaknesses as well as the positive qualities, and they may find it difficult to deal with one another because they exhibit the very things they like least about themselves.

Uranus 4th house synastric overlay (chart 3):  This shows the influence of the UK on the EU and that its stressful dealings with the UK are permanent, these are not incidents. The communal focus of the EU will always conflict with the UK demands for freedom of action. The UK feels that the EU is pressing too closely and may be limiting and repressive. Like a parental role the EU may feel it has taken on some responsibility for the UK without understanding why. The EU hasn’t been able to deal with this permanent in-house disrupting force in the past except avoiding conflicts by creating exceptions. Perhaps this does this raise the question whether this conservative paternalistic focus of the EU (EU natal Sun in Capricorn/4th) should be modernized? Probably the times are indicating this and so it may perhaps become unavoidable (Pluto transits 4th 2008-2027). Since 2008 the EU is in a state of permanent crisis which all somehow attack the interior and privacy of the EU: the financial, banking, euro and Greek crisis, the Snowdon, Ukranian, refugee, Turkish and lately added the TTIP and brexit crisis. All of them are unsolved.

EU chart, Pluto transit 4th 2008 – 2027

6. Way: how is brexit received in the EU and how to approach Brussels, Berlin and Paris? (back)

ACG map of the brexit event chart

Michael Maïer - Atalanta Fugiens - 1618 - Emblème XXVII

The Brussels response/approach:

Ven squ MC acg line / Sat and Mar ls line: The UK may be totally occupied by itself, being unable to make friendly contact with the other side, you know: ‘the EU’. The UK demands more reconciliation from the others than it is willing to give. Only long term objectives will succeed here, only through hard work rewards are possible, without taking any short cuts, with endless patience and the ability to overcome frustration by the inevitable obstacles that arise. It needs to involve careful planning and attention to detail rather than spontaneous decisions. However, the UK may find itself taking dangerous risks that it wouldn’t normally consider resulting in unnecessary accidents. The UK may also be short-tempered, quick to enter into unwise battles. Rivalry abounds along this direction.

The Berlin response/approach:

Pluto squ MC acg line / Sun ls line: The UK should be really careful not to stir controversy and resistance of others or trying to snub, ignore, underestimate, manipulate, bypass or overrule German politics. They should avoid everything that may give the impression they’re are not prepared to compromise. The approach to Berlin may require only brutal honesty, tact and wisdom considering history, putting the debate on the freedom of movement of people in perspective. For Germany the EU may be thé new Germany because after the 2nd WW there was nothing to go back to. Something happened that couldn’t and still can’t be explained. Germany as a concept became inaccessible, buried, hidden or locked up somewhere as a dangerous power that can’t be contained, leaving the Germans orphanized. The post war German identity may be nothing but that which is shared through the EU by other EU countries as a surrogate identity. The UK may perceive this as if Germany sees itself as the new EU, it’s probably the reverse as if Germany is trying to dissolve itself in the EU. Looking at both charts of the EU (1 Jan 1958) and the FRG (5 May 1955) it may not come as a surprise seeing parallel traits between them.

In Berlin the UK may come across as being totally obsessed reaching for its own goals. Because the UK may not be seen/behave in Berlin as a team player conflicts could indeed arise. Beating the drum in Berlin declaring the EU model obsolete could sum up something from the collective unconsciousness that perhaps should better have stayed there. Something post war Germany has tried to walk away from and suppress may appear, the old German warrior spirit claiming dominance.

The UK may fall pray to people with the presumed same obsessed intentions turning against the UK, doing everything possible to change the UK against its own will. Somehow the chart indicates that the UK may be touching here on all aspects of life that are carried on in the dark or hidden from public view – political undergrounds, espionage, organized crime, all things hidden and secretive (not necessarily German) with great wealth and power. So whatever happens in Berlin by whoever, during the brexit process this may become extremely manipulative and unfriendly to the UK.

The Paris response/approach:

Uranus ls line: Previously I said that the UK demands for individual freedom may conflict with the EU communal focus. This seems to impact mostly the relation between the UK and France. The UK bid for independence is probably felt most deeply in Paris, which may be effected the most by brexit. Like an Uranian shake-up the whole city and the French government may change through brexit in ways we cannot even suspect. It is perhaps in Paris that the Tory group who initiated brexit may find partnership. In French politics a complete policy change may occur, perhaps France becomes the second country that distances itself from the EU in some way, moving in the direction of the UK (both nuclear powers). France may also try to leverage the brexit event to revive its economic position (city of Paris as financial center) and through that to reestablish its politically leading role in Europe in contrast to Germany. Such a nationalists move by France could impact the EU as a whole leaving it no choice but to reset its parameters introducing redefined relations.

A brexit strategy

These responses/approaches may support the theory that the brexit event introduces a wave of nationalism in both Germany and France and could function as the perfect change project leading to the type European Union the UK originally had in mind (non political/non federal). The UK may perhaps want to evoke a nationalist move in Germany and France which indirectly may cause the EU to change. The choice for a particular brexit model which is to be negotiated and the choice for a particular campaign and accompanying rhetoric to shape these negotiations may be based on this strategy. The UK may have selected this brexit event chart for this sole purpose only. The public discussion about soft or hard brexit may just as well be a pseudo discussion. Everyone is busy with details and may be lost in this labyrinth of conflicting self interests and views. The hidden strategy may be that a brexit event (created by this chart) could be the tipping point luring Germany and France into a nationalist move as if it were the only way the EU could be changed.

Could this strategy backfire, meaning that the federal ambitions of the EU cannot be diverted? Not very likely, by embracing this brexit event chart the UK may choose to act as a change agent to change the EU. The UK is casted in this role. Chiron in the brexit chart indicates that the UK may successfully do this, however without being able to profit from these changes itself. Such is the nature of Chiron: you get ‘administrator rights’ but you probably also get hurt. In the UK the feeling may creep up that something has been stolen or unwillingly sacrificed along the way, or see others walk away with the rewards of its actions. Perhaps other countries still being part of the EU may use this brexit event as a jumping board to arrive in a position the UK had envisioned for itself but somehow failed to materialize. The reward of Chiron will be that the real issues to solve come forward leading to real understanding. Not being able to go back and forth, leading itself into something unknown this may be a truly heroic time for the UK.

Could the UK still get out of this all? Yes, denounce the chart by rejecting the referendum, or do a second referendum which would lead to a different chart when adopted. In that case all the different aspects of this delineation should be reconsidered before choosing a new date.

7. Way: responses / approaches to partners worldwide. (back)

Global ACG map of the brexit event chart

The things I have written about the workings of Pluto in this brexit event (read 2 and 6) may have its source in New York and Moscow.

New York

Pluto MC ACG line on New York & Mars ls line.  The brexit event gives the UK much power and initiative in New York to defend its interests. Logically one could expect that the UK may use its influence in New York/US to help promoting its interests in coming negotiations with the EU. That may work only to a certain extent, the common interest of the US-EU will put this in a different perspective. With geopolitics and international finance at stake the US could start influencing the brexit event both in and outside the UK. One extreme possibility (and count on extremities with Pluto/MC) is that these supposedly powerful partners in New York may already have decided to take over the whole event limiting UK’s options dictating their own agenda. The UK may be forced back in the row as the US may exercise its power here.

Another aspect of this line is related to what we’ve said earlier (2) about the potential brutal impact Pluto may have on all public and national services, political institutions, trade unions and especially the working class in the UK. Daily life in the UK may become like in the US after brexit. The UK may probably allow US companies, institutions and regulators increased access to the UK, as if the Tories have already decided to become a member state of the US. By importing all US problems with it this may lead to a further neglect of the low income groups in the UK as we know it today: an even more failing schooling, health care, judicial and police system, increased racial segregation, increased violence, etc. It would be interesting to elaborate here on cultural differences between the US and the UK. 


Pluto ls line on Moscow. The Brexit event may have solicited attention from Moscow too. This is different from New York’s. There is no interaction with parties in Moscow and their influence may be secretive, potentially violent (Pluto) and indirect. Moscow may see brexit as an opportunity to be secretly active and transformative (Pluto) in the EU. Moscow may be wondering how the UK’s public debate on leaving the EU could be externally influenced, but there are many other opportunities: the EU public debate, the negotiation process between the UK and the EU, the relation between the UK and Germany or the UK and eastern Europe. Finally, how could it be catapulted into an EU wide event? All these questions and many others may be interesting to Moscow if it would want to act as a stakeholder in the event defending or expanding its power base.  The brexit event chart is casting Moscow in this role.

Chiron MC on Dublin This line is about something lost through this event related to the UK’s role in the world. We may expect that the head offices of the financial and other industries in London will be moved to Dublin collectively. This line could also point to losses related to Scotland / Northern Ireland in some form.

Uranus MC on eastern Europe. The brexit event may work as a great disruptor/innovator in Eastern Europe, it’s perceived as if the UK has pulled a stunt which is one sided. Eastern Europe may  return the favor by disrupting the brexit process itself. Moscow still having significant presence in the former east bloc may want to use this to its own advantage.

Uranus Dec on Beijing  This could point to an unnerving and alienating influence of the brexit event on Beijing (sparking initiatives of bottom-up democracy in China). Which in return could respond likewise with frequent surprises out of the ordinary to occur with regularity. 

And what about Geneva Switzerland, where the head office of the WTO is located? The chart indicates ‘powerful surroundings, strong forceful partners and being coerced by others’. The UK’s efforts to strike new bonds is taking longer than it would wish. The problem lies in the fact that the UK is giving too much. The UK is focused on the needs of other countries rather than on nurturing its own interests.


In short, based on the chart Dublin may only take over London’s role of EU portal and become an important hub for the financial services’ and other industry’s head offices. The brexit event however may become a little bit bigger than that. The chart shows that the brexit event could cause a crisis in the EU changing its basic structure depending on the EU’s capability to deal with this crisis. The UK may be over its head initiating this by brexit. Super powers may show significant interest trying to defend and expand their power base in Europe. The US may overrule the UK by taking over the direction of the brexit event. Moscow may leverage its influence in eastern Europe trying to disrupt and escalate the event to its own purpose. Through brexit the cards may be reshuffled in the coming four years on a global scale. This will be the up make for a period when Pluto enters Aquarius (2023-2043).

8. Message’s context: global trends (back)

How is the message of brexit supported by global trends?  

From 2008-2023 Pluto transits through Capricorn and enhances Saturnine energy. Typical areas of events that will emerge where transformation occurs through death and rebirth are: heads of state and governments, aristocracy and ruling class, national aspirations, the repressive and controlling forces in the state: the police,  authority and tradition, the state and its institutions.

It is not difficult to find examples of this scenario in the world at the moment. So the impact of this influence is very real. Brexit could be seen as a typical example of this influence, as a crisis leading to the death and rebirth of the state and its government, it erodes its authority and tradition. From this perspective it’s unclear whether brexit is deliberately created or not. However, what could possibly be the reason why a Tory group would want this?

Pluto enters Aquarius (2023-2043) and enhances Uranian energy. New areas of events will emerge where transformation occurs through death and rebirth. Typical Aquarius areas are: free-market enterprise, unimaginable scientific discovery, global issues of human cooperation, ideals of Human rights, eccentric ideas and leadership, diminished role of the family and increased urbanization. But also nuclear energy, uranium, right-wing political ideas, clashes in political ideologies leading to revolution, fascism, anarchy and nihilism, anti-establishment, immigration and refugees.

After a period (2008-2023) in which Capricornian bastions like the UK, the US and EU, many governments, states and institutions have been eroded by Pluto, have been corrupted and in some cases have collapsed under the pressure the time is ready for revolution when Pluto enters Aquarius. The barriers are broken and nothing may hold the flood wave of change back. A global revolution may be waiting for us.

Brexit may be an initiative to anticipate and to be ahead of this global trend, to align the country in advance with this coming flood wave in order to control it instead of being taken over by it. This means somewhat giving in to this Pluto Aquarius effect and yet restrain it, steer it, as if vaccinating itself, learning about it by exposing itself to it. It may be an initiative to change both the UK and the EU in a more or less orderly fashion enabling both to adapt to the coming changes in the near future while they still can. It may perhaps testify of a visionary and leading capacity of a certain Tory group if this assumption is indeed the reason for initiating this brexit event. 

What may seem as an irresponsible whim could turn out to be the right tactical move. A chance to be ahead of fascism, revolution, etc. and everything violent that comes with it. Brexit may be a last minute instruction that we must learn from WW I and II. More on a positive side it could be the right tactical move to be able to initiate, contribute to and profit from all innovating things related to this coming period.

Don’t expect a positive response to brexit in the institutions and governments in the EU today, period. It will be extremely difficult for the UK to explain to those looking from a Saturnine standpoint that it perhaps makes sense to align one selves with the energy of Uranus in a somewhat (un) controlled way like brexit does anticipating the near future. Especially now while Pluto still crosses Capricorn making Saturn feel it may involve itself into unusual power play. To preach an Uranian approach in a Saturn dominated time is to ask for the scorn and wrath of others. Again, this attitude may not help the EU because it may only accelerate its own undoing, such is the nature of this time (Pluto Capricorn transit 2008 – 2023).

Finally, global trends may suggest not to follow a Saturnine but to crossover to an Uranian perspective on the world if you want to be prepared for what’s coming on time. From the perspective of global trends it looks like that the UK is trying to do exactly that, to be ahead of time, anticipating, investing, swimming against the stream, rebelling, disrupting and innovating.



9. Timing: scenario outline (in progress) (back)

Here we focus on the different phases of the brexit process enfolding in time based on the brexit event chart. We may construct a timeline containing nine important moments between 23 jun 2016 and 23 jun 2020 in the progression of the brexit process. These progressions could mark important moments in the brexit process within the UK and in the brexit negotiations with the EU.

By setting the date for the brexit referendum the chart becomes animated and will start influencing the course of things to happen. Adopting the referendum is like crossing a threshold and the experience of brexit will come alive and conscious. Not taking this step the British would never have know what brexit really meant.
