Astrology of Now: Breaking an Agreement
The British government under the leadership of Prime Minister Boris Johnson and his advisor Dominic Cummings is attempting to pass a law to break international law on Monday.
They are trying to pass a bill through parliament which will allow them to break the Brexit agreement which they signed with such fandango earlier this year.
Yes, the country of football, cricket, rugby, golf, betting slips, bobbies, judges in full-bottomed wigs, inns of court, the “mother of parliaments” is about to break an international treaty with allies, a treaty which this very government signed a few months ago. — if they can get away with it.
The astrology, you’ll be pleased to read, is straightforward.
Mars, the planet of action, turned retrograde on September 9, about the time this cunning wheeze was announced. Mars is transiting the house of allies, friends and agreements in the UK chart — that is the 7th house. AND Mars is opposing Juno, the asteroid of contracts in the sign of Libra, the sign of the law and partnership, in the UK first house. The government is trying to win by backing out.
Of course it will backfire. That’s the definition of a Mars retrograde action. This is the law of unintended consequences which this government seems incapable of learning. One consequence is that the reputation of Britain as a country that honours trade deals will be toast. This is quite serious if you’re planning to make a lot of deals in the next few years in your new Brexity shorts.
In a few days, the planet of law, Jupiter, will turn direct, followed by Saturn at the end of September and Pluto in early October, all in Capricorn. I look forward to the coming battle as Mars squares all these planets over the coming months. Perhaps parliament, represented by Saturn in the UK chart, will stop being so passive.
