UK Election: …. And The Winner Is
Most of my fellow astrologers have plumped for David Cameron as the winner in tomorrow’s election. I am not so sure: who won anything when Pluto was squaring his Sun? But then Ed Miliband has Pluto crossing (possibly, see previous post) his Midheaven, a transit which did for the last-but-one prime minister, Gordon Brown… Looks like it’s going to be a fight to the death…
However, there is one party leader who stands out from all the others because of the excellence of the current transits to her chart — and that is Nicola Sturgeon, the leader of the Scottish Nationalist Party, who may be on the winning streak of a lifetime. Jupiter, the kingmaker, is climbing to the peak of her chart, a once-a-decade event that puts her in the public eye. The planet of luck has been lighting up her 9th house of public speaking all year, but especially since mid-April when he turned direct. Jupiter won’t reach the top of her chart until the summer, when she herself may take on the role of kingmaker. The following year, Jupiter will be in her house of earthly power.
For those of you outside these islands, Nicola Sturgeon has torn up this election campaign. She’s smarter and faster than any of the other party leaders, and she’s not afraid to meet real people. She’s put the fear of God into the grey-suited men who run Whitehall. Look at Lilith in her chart. This is what we see when she’s taking them apart in a debate.
The joke is that she’s not running for office, because she already has a job as leader of the Scottish parliament. She’s just here to rally voters to tick the box for her party in Scotland tomorrow. According to the polls, she could send as many as 39 Scottish Nationalists to Westminster next term. This would make hers the third biggest party in the Houses of Parliament.
The SNP is to the left of Labour, and Miliband has ruled out an alliance, but if he could bring himself to hold hands with Sturgeon, the result would be surprisingly stable, if the composite chart of the leaders is anything to go by.
We’ll be going to the polls tomorrow and even though this has been a boring election campaign and our choices are between career politicians, this is an important election. The country is at a fork in the road — look at the Nodes. Astrology assumes that we have free will and it is your choice tomorrow. The resulting changes could be huge for this country. Here is BBC economics correspondent Robert Peston on the subject.
The EU: in or out
Scotland: stay or go
Money: taxing non-doms, raising minimum wage, curbing the banks and investing in public services or slashing welfare and focusing on paying down the deficit
Astrologers have been wondering why Pluto crossing the UK Sun and IC didn’t have a more crumbling effect on the country…. Well, we haven’t had the opposition to the Moon yet, so it’s not over until it’s over.
