Britain will vote in the Brexit referendum on 23rd June 2016. Polls open at 7am and close at 10pm. This is strange synchronicity is the Ceres post I have just re-written shows that it’s discovery chart and the UK birthchart are practically the same. They were both born January 1st 1801 with Capricorn Suns. There is a lot of duality afoot! The UK chart has two Yods. It’s rising star is appropriately Diadem, the crown.
The Moon sits between Castor and Pollux the good and bad twins. Double destiny, or two Britains? The strong Cancer Moon, presenting the people, is the apex of the second Yod. The Sun, the head of state is conjunct the IC. This shows the UK’s ancestry, the inherited titles of the aristocracy and the importance of history. If you want to skip the transit Astrology, go straight to my indepth conclusion; Brexit ‘Leave’?
Brexit! ~ The Astrology
The current triple conjunction of Ceres/Eris/Uranus (20º Aries) are all squaring the UK Moon on the day. This really is about sovereignty, and I mean this in terms of the UK’s personal sovereignty. Who rules over us? Will Brussels’s Plutocracy maintain its tight grip or can we become a self-governing nation again. As I write this on June 11th, the polls are neck-and-neck but apparently the government are panicking over a sudden surge for a ‘Leave’ vote. Transits using precession correction are;
Pluto square Nodes (22’)
Saturn Rx sextile UK Ascendant (1º 31’)
Mars Rx conjunct Neptune (1º 37’)
Uranus/Ceres/Eris square Moon. (2º )
Pluto Rx conjunct UK Sun (3º)
The complexity of the Uranus/Eris square to the Moon has already taken effect and is inevitable. Now it is joined by Ceres which would make it affect the psyche of parents most of all. Do parents really care about the threatened economic downturn, or are they worried about their children, daughters in particular (Ceres can indicate abduction/sexual abuse). They have seen the consequences of EU policies in Paris, Cologne and in Sweden generally..
This is so visceral that I’m hoping ordinary Brits can’t be swayed by political double speak. The Uranus part of the triple conjunction could be the shocking, sudden break that the polls did not see coming, however this aspect is separating. Saying that, earlier polls conducted in January did show a ‘Leave’ result.
Pluto is the biggest transit to the UK chart. Pluto makes no-going-back, transformative change, but it is slow and insidious. There is a big chance of election fraud and deception with Mars Rx conjunct UK Neptune on Unukalhai. At the same time Saturn sextile UK Ascendant could be our knight in shining armour.
Is this St George the dragon slayer, the patron saint of England mentioned in the Mars Retrograde post? Mars is back in Scorpio decan 3 and so strong in the sign it rules, but Mars retrograde it can work in a passive aggressive or underhand Plutonic manner. I named this decan ‘Forest Lurkers & karma Chameleons’ and talked about the wolf defending its pack. But there is a sense of hiding or doing things in secret, again I wonder about voting fraud.
UK Chart Progressions ~ Internal Evolution
The UK should be in a strong position because the Prog Sun is at 10º Leo a sign it rules, though whether this is the position of the head of state or the countries own sovereignty I’m not sure. Does this Leo Sun represent the Queen (Symbolic) or the Tory government who are pushing us to remain in the EU? Prog DC of open enemies, is conjunct the UK’s Mercury (1º 27’) which rules it’s foreigners (9th). No front-page news of refugees in boats sinking in the Mediterranean this year, even though it is still happening! This news blackout tells us something about propaganda. The EU will only tell us what serves their agenda.
Prog Sun square Mars (15’) in the 8th house of debt and crisis representing foreign banks, so this could mean tension and a break from them. Prog Mercury went Retrograde in January 2006. This Mercury Rx is now opposite UK Venus. The chickens have come home to roost. This double Mercury to Venus whammy is repeated in the Solar Arcs so it is important. Mercury for the UK means immigrants and foreign interests (9th). But in 2006 it was hardly going backwards in terms of immigration. The Labour Blair government positively encouraged it. You can see the immigrant workforce going up from 1997 when Labour got into power. 2006 shows a steep rise, Blair’s last year in office. Then it abruptly stops..
UK Solar Arcs ~ Internal Destiny
SA Venus = UK Mercury (18’). Mercury is immigrants (9th) and self-undoing (12th) Venus is identity and culture (1st) and debt/crisis with the EU (8th). Also the preceding June ‘Hidden Cross’ New Moon was at 14º Gemini and opposite the UK Mercury (9th) showing just how important this decision is.
SA Mercury = UK Moon (13’). Moon (10th) is UK’s status in the world. Again Mercury is foreign interests and self-undoing. Let’s hope the UK doesn’t tie itself in knots with a ‘remain’ vote. Maybe the UK has to self-undo!
The Prediction ~ Leave?
It’s hard to make a prediction because these transits and progressions look difficult and don’t convey liberation or freedom in a positive sense. It’s more like a struggle out of bondage. It will take a great courage and most people prefer to keep the status quo.
UPDATE! June 18th. Following the death of ‘Remain’ MP Jo Cox, the Plutonic influence could be just too strong over the UK chart. The propaganda is extremely forceful and machiavellian. So I’m predicting the vote will be insanely close, but we will ‘Remain’. I really hope I am wrong! Looking at all the transits and progressions, a ‘Remain’ vote will mean we go through a ‘death’ of sorts, and Britain will never be the same again. UPDATE June 22nd. Another possibility is that we could vote to leave, but still remain, since the government are not (by EU law) obliged to act on this referendum. I only just found out about this clause, hence it is reflected in the dual possibility of the astrology.
The most important cosmic effect on the day I think is the Prog Sun square Mars. In the end money talks and the UK Mars of Debt, Bankers (8th) rules home finances (2nd) which means they are both connected. Transits and progressions to the UK Mars will activate these themes. Foreign investment has always had a strong influence over Britain’s wealth as a nation and at one time of course there was a British Empire which traded all over the world.
Foreign Investment & Servants
The UK Mars is all the more crucial since Britain is no longer a manufacturing nation and more reliant on income from the service industry. Services tend to run on a lot of cheap imported labour, rather than a skilled home-grown workforce. Service workers are essentially the equivalent of Victorian servants, except the government houses them rather than the upper-middle classes.
Shutting the door on cheap labour will certainly put pressure on the UK economy. We will have to start rebuilding a strong manufacturing base again and be more self-sufficient. This will take time. This is Pluto’s effect on the UK’s nodes, our ultimate destiny. Pluto’s effect is slow and thorough, but will build things to last.
In the meantime it could feel like death as most governments want quick fixes so they will get elected again. Pluto’s Rx transit to the UK Sun is interesting and tells the background story. It seems like the change has already happened. The more I work on this post, the more I think, as much as the British themselves may want to leave, fraud or deception in the media might dictate otherwise..
Demographics, ‘Remain’ & The Land
The UK chart has the same birthday as the Ceres discovery chart. Britain (England in particular) is known for its stunning countryside and green and pleasant meadows. Pluto is about wealth, but the state of a country shouldn’t be just about financial matters, even though that is what is always the biggest motivator when it comes to peoples voting patterns. Ideally the British should be voting in terms of what is good for their country spiritually and ecologically too.
I would argue that those who have a special connection to the land (ie the natives.) are more concerned with what they hand down to their descendants. Immigrants tend to come to the UK for economic benefits, it’s certainly not for the weather…. Therefore their primary interests, when they vote, are going to be financial ones. I’m not blaming them, everyone wants a better life for their families and my Sicilian father came to England for work as many did in the 1960s. But there are limits.
Is unrestricted immigration good for the soul of the nation in the long run? We see what happens when too much tourism runs rampant on a beautiful Mediterranean island. (Majorca is a good example.) Yes it’s great for the economy of the island and the locals benefit initially, but again we have to look at good Saturn limits.
The laws of the land have to be used to protect the land from the runaway ‘development’ that comes with commercial greed. England is half the size of France with the same population. Look at it on a world map! It’s tiny for it’s population of 65 million. Unfortunately the Conservatives don’t seem to want to ‘conserve’ anything anymore and have sold out to globalism and corporate interests.
Accountability is what’s at stake. The British did not vote to give away 150 million of their taxes a week, for Brussels to distribute around Europe in however manner it wishes. I think of each nation of Europe as a different colour of the rainbow. Each needs to be allowed to preserve its identity. The policies of Brussels seek to mix those glorious, vibrant and at times antagonistic bands into one uniform obedient sludge. Do we want all our European cities to look the same? Same shops, same brands, Europe wide? But hey it’s so convenient and you know what you’re getting. No risk, it’s all the same, blaaaaand.
Pluto Square The Nodes ~ Orwellian Future?
In summary, I think Britain is at a tipping point. Pluto square the nodes is about not allowing outside powers to influence our spiritual evolution. But Pluto is also about propaganda and the rise of dictatorships. The EU has already started to become scarily Orwellian with the new directive involving Facebook, Twitter, YouTube and Microsoft. The regular news media are losing their grip on the consciousness of Europeans, so the EU is seeking to intimidate the alternative media with its new ‘hate speech’ laws.
Freedom of speech is probably an even more important reason to keep out of the EU dictatorship. If we lose our right to criticise the cabal, then we really are doomed. Instead of burning our books, now we are getting cyber-frazzled. The SA Venus (1st) = UK Mercury (3rd) in both Solar Arc and Progressions also emphasise the importance of free speech. So issues of the UK being able to speak its truth are also at stake. This referendum may be the last chance to have our voices heard.
Transits To The EU Chart ~ The Fall Of Rome
Transits to the EU chart are important to look at too, because if Britain does leave then this could start a domino effect. It could be a bit like the fall of the Roman Empire. There are two charts for the EU. The Treaty of Rome is more symbolic, and fits with my fall of an Empire scenario, so I will use that.
In this chart we see Mars retrograde conjunct the North Node on June 23. Could that be a tie severed? Even the latest EU incarnation chart has Mars Rx active also, though not as tightly. The Maastrict treaty chart for 1993 has a stellium of Merc Rx, Mars and Pluto from 19º – 24º Scorpio. Mars will station direct bang in the center of those, so this is very significant too. I wonder if this could be the start of the fall.
The problem is, defining whether this is the falling of the ordinary European people or the fall of the corrupted EU. Europe has had many Empires/civilisations which started off with great intentions and lofty ideals, but then degenerated when leaders became greedy and started importing more slaves to aid their growth. This when Jupiter’s expansion gets out of hand and natural law decrees that Saturn should place some limitations or the rot will set in. Society does need some sort of order, but right now the lunatics have taken over the asylum.. (literally!)
Pagans & Persians Unite
Some power is fuelling and funding the asylum-seeking displacement. This is a tragedy for the Syrians who don’t want to leave their country (See Syrian girl’s take on this). It’s no accident that Syria and also Iran are being targeted the most by Zionist US ‘defence’. These two countries are the least fundamentalist of the Islamic world (If you removed ISIS) and have the strongest connections to a pre-Islamic culture that was one of the most advanced in the world.
The Persians were as passionate about astrology as the Greeks. Together these two beacons of excellence were custodians of the ancient wisdom stored at the famous library of Alexandria in Egypt. Persian Zoroastranism has many connections to our European pagan religions, as it also worshipped a Sun god and was essentially an earth-spirit religion. If Europe could unite under the common love of the land, rather than being divided into factions of fighting Abrahamic faiths then Britain could remain in EU. But right now Europe is possessed by some very nefarious forces…
EU & Witch-burning
The reason I feel so strongly about this mass displacement is because Astrology is part of the legacy of what was handed down to us from the Greeks and the Persians. Astrology connects us to the pagan religions of old, the ancient wisdom that constructed Stonehenge and the pyramids. In the dark ages we had witch-burning and Astrology almost died out. Christianity as a faith, even with all its flaws, is actually a disguised Sun worshipping cult.
Check out Santos Bonacci’s Astrotheology. These days people are turning away from the church and getting their cosmology direct from source. But the Plutocrats are trying to subdue this with yet another brand of Abrahamic religion. Like before, well-groomed little masochistic Christians are turning the other cheek and nailing themselves to the mutable cross? This is suicide! BUT….. There is hope, Pluto is a resurrection god. It can rise again. Maybe this is the start of that process for Britain and then Europe as a whole.
