The last time that Saturn and Pluto conjoined in Capricorn was in 1518, 3 months after Martin Luther nailed his theses to the church door at Wittenberg and began the Protestant revolution against the transnational power of the day: the Catholic Church. 

Saturn and Capricorn both describe governments and the establishment, and Pluto describes a major power shift within that. So what are the equivalents today? 

The transnational power of today within Europe is firstly the EU, and Brexit formally took place a couple of weeks after the conjunction in January. So because of the astrology I think we have to read that event as pre-figuring a major shake-up of the EU and its power structures. I am stating this as a factual inference, not as a judgment in favour of or against the EU (it is very hard not to be taken as such these days.) This major shake-up will be reflected in Neptune's hard transit to the EU Angles, whic…


Astrologers think via synchronicities, between events and star stories, and between events occurring at the same time. At a moment like the present, when the UK is about to leave the EU - which, now that it is definite, seems to have dropped from the status of all-consuming to a non-event in the news - it is worth paying attention. 
We are leaving on 31st Jan, and Charles I was executed on 30 Jan. The symbolism is, I think, obvious. We haven't yet decided whether to have Big Ben ringing on the night: that is a symbol of our ambivalence - do we celebrate or do we mourn? 

And Prince Harry is breaking free of the Royal Family. This is at a cost to his income and status, but he will be claiming his own life - as Neptune begins to oppose his Virgo Sun. It is coming from his soul, and he wishes to remain of service, but in his own way. And as Pluto and Saturn finally finish squaring his Venus: cherchez la femme.

Symbolically, Harry sums up the 2 sides in the Brexit argument. One side is saying we will no longer be a big-hitter geopolitically and that it will cost us economically. And the other is saying yes, but what about our sovereignty? Choose your side. The Royal Family is settling this without acrimony, and maybe the acrimony is therefore pretty much over about Brexit. It feels like that to me, and it feels like the country is a lot more at peace with itself than it has been for decades, even though we have an outcome that many people really do not want.

I think we need to consider Prince Andrew too. He has been eased out of the Royal Family, though he is said to be the Queen's favourite. Classic Pisces: hopeless and loveable (apparently). I'm not entirely sure how to read this one in the UK Zeitgeist. But it all blew up during the election campaign, when we had been politically a basket-case all year, so it was a timely reflection of where we were and what we needed to escape from. And we did!
The decision to leave the EU on 31st January effectively became legal on 19th December, after the 2nd reading of the Brexit Bill. The 3rd reading was passed on 9th January, but with no new clauses or amendments. The 2nd reading passed just 6 days after Saturn's 3rd and final opposition to the UK Moon. This was almost astrology by clockwork: we have been through years of Pluto and then Saturn making hard aspects to the UK Sun, Moon, Angles and Node, and at the very last transit - and Saturn requires concrete action - the decisions for the future are taken.
I have had to hang on to my horses astrologically with this one. I predicted from the word go that we would leave - what else could describe the astrology? And then I allowed myself to be backtracked for a bit by the swamp and by other astrologers saying we wouldn't leave, and then last August I said enough is enough, I trust the astrology and we are leaving. So trust the simple astrology.
