MP's Expenses Row - An Astrological Comment
by Glenda Cole
The UK chart which will be used for the following astrological analysis is that of 12th April 1927 when the current Parliament of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland came in to being. (1)
The astrological precursors of this moment can be found in the Aries Ingress, where we see that the Ingress MC and Uranus are conjunct Mercury whilst Ingress Mercury is conjunct Jupiter, at the same time Ingress Uranus is conjunct, aptly symbolising journalists (Mercury) making an exposure (Jupiter,) and the ensuing disruption/furore (Uranus).
The Solar eclipse of January 26th is also an eye opener given that the eclipse Midheaven fell on the UK's 1927 Saturn/ascendant conjunction. The progressed chart for 8th May 2009 also tells its own story with a progressed moon conjunct progressed Venus and Neptune, all within minutes of each other and less than a degree past the UK natal moon. This aptly shows the public being disenchanted with their current government.
The row is still rumbling on, with Michael Martin being the first speaker in 300 years to be forced out of office. He announced at 2:30 pm on the 19th May, as transiting Saturn exactly squared his natal Uranus that he would be standing down on 21st June 2009. (2)
Should Gordon Brown be worried about his position too? Yes! The Lunar eclipse of the 7th July will square his Ascendant, followed soon after by progressed moon conjunct natal Saturn. Watch this space....
