In the wake of the pound crash caused by Kwasi Kwarteng's disastrous 'mini-budget,' the Liz Truss government has elected to bring in Mr Fix-it, Jeremy Hunt. Son of a naval officer, a former 'Cameroon,' and an advocate of so-called Compassionate Conservativism who can speak fluent Japanese and was once head boy of his school, Jeremy… Continue reading Jeremy Hunt: Axe Man or Tory Saviour?
A lot has happened in British politics in the last month. As Mercury turned retrograde for the last three weeks of March, things seesawed back and forth, catapaulting Parliament from one shambles into another, with the Prime Minister and the House of Commons vying for control over the Brexit process. Now, as the UK hurtles towards… Continue reading Brexit: Is the UK really in danger of breaking up?
What's the likely outcome of Mercury's next plot twist in the Brexit saga? A lot has happened in British politics since my last blog post just a week or two ago. Not only has Libran, Theresa May, backed down from her rather hardline stance at the beginning of last week, to be replaced by a… Continue reading Brexit: the Next Episode
Theresa May lost last night's Brexit deal vote. But being the tough Saturn in Scorpio 'difficult woman' that she is, she's not giving up. Between now and the deadline of 31 March, MP's will now be subjected to an increasing number of pincer movements by the government as the UK prime minister attempts to force… Continue reading Brexit Vote: Next Steps
A lot can happen in two years, and my goodness, there have been so many twists in this particular tale since that historic (and controversial) vote back in June 2016. In the last week, though, things have seriously ramped up, both for the UK and its current prime minister, as the March 31 deadline rapidly… Continue reading Brexit: Deal or No Deal?
It is no small exaggeration to say that the 2017 UK General Election is probably one of the most important elections the UK has held in a very long time.
What happens in June 2017 stands to have a major impact on its future direction - and potentially also it's very existence!
Naturally, as an astrologer, I couldn't help myself from 'having a punt' at what the potential outcome may be. Having spent the last two elections 'getting my eye in,' hopefully this time I will be in a better position to avoid the common assumptions and pitfalls, and get things right first time round...
Here goes with my election predictions!...
Last time there was a US Presidential Election (2012), I stuck my neck out and made some predictions about the outcome based on fairly traditional astrological methods. Although my predictions came true, this time around I wanted to do something different. There are already so many astrologers out there making predictions for the 2016 race… Continue reading Does George Washington hold the key to choosing America’s next President?
Can astrology provide us with some useful insights into the character of this enigmatic woman? On Wednesday the 13th of July, a day after Venus enters the sign par excellence of world leaders and kings: majestic and proud Leo - emblem of Britain since the 12th century - Theresa May will become the second woman ever to hold… Continue reading Just who is Theresa May?
May was dominated by several major planetary events: a series of Neptune squares on the 13th, 18th and 26th, which coincided with misjudgements and travel accidents; another pass of the rather challenging Uranus-Pluto square on May the 20th, which corresponded with a devastating tornado in Oklahoma and an outbreak of rioting and civil unrest in… Continue reading Woolwich Massacre & the April 2014 eclipses
