- Boris Johnson has Virgo rising in his chart (pictured), which means he is an embodiment of Mercury, while Mars transits his rising sign in the lead up to Brexit, fuelling an aggressive stance that is held back by the establishment (Saturn).
- Brexit was ahead in the polls before the assassination. Campaigning has been suspended. I predict that the murder will now swing the British Public into a less inflamed state of consciousness (which is actually whay Jo Cox was campaigning for). In this post we look at the astrology of obsession and violence that is current now from two negative.
- Ascendant conjunct fixed star Vindemiatrix (1°38′) gives falsity, disgrace, stealing, wanton folly and often causes its natives to become widows. On the Ascendant this star is said to help mental concentration and to promote the type of native who engages for.
- The Brexit is only the beginning, and only the tip of the iceberg. Update on Mars and Saturn As you may know, Mars and Saturn have been passing through Scorpio in the past few months.

Brexit, Brexit, Brexit: This is all we hear about in the U.K. these days. While the social and societal institutions that once made this country a good place to live fall to ruin through neglect and underfunding all around us, nobody wants to talk about anything other than Brexit.
It seems odd to say, but while predicting the future is difficult, predicting the past is not always easy either. As astrologers, we are concerned with understanding patterns, and allowing not so much the fabric but the weave of the fabric we are contemplating to tell its story; this can be tricky to understand, even when events are long past. And when we consider broad entities, such as nations, this is exacerbated by the necessity to look at so-called mundane astrology, which has somewhat different significations than the personal stars we are familiar with.
Nonetheless, the astrology of Brexit has followed a pattern so concise and self-evident that even non-astrologers might grasp it completely.
Although rumblings about the nature of Britain’s relationship with the wider Continent have been audible since the final days of the Second World War, there was no serious desire to examine these bonds outside the very right wing fringes of the British Conservative Party Conservative Party — that is, until, pandering to pressure from that very faction, Conservative Prime Minister David Cameron announced his intention to hold an in-or-out referendum. This address, which came to be known as the Bloomberg Speech, took place in central London on January 23, 2013 at 9:00 a.m.

This places Neptune within a one-minute conjunction with the Ascendant. In the mundane chart, Neptune’s influence is over the mass of people. C. C. Zain describes it thus: “The most pronounced influence of Neptune is to exaggerate the hopes and expectations.” (1) Here, Neptune is powerful in his sign (Pisces) and precisely rising. Zain goes on to say, “He is thus the most active factor in promotion schemes, in vast undertakings … and in utopian enterprises … On his adverse side, he is the particular patron of frauds, swindles, confidence men, and all the more subtle methods by which, without violence, people are taken advantage of.” As the progress of Britain’s withdrawal from the European Union continues, the myriad benefits pledged by the advocates of the Leave campaign seem to have slowly evaporated in high Neptunian fashion! The early promise of a cash bonanza for public services has, chimera-like, changed into a worrying deficit, shortages of foodstuffs and medicines, the necessity of selling off public services to American corporations, and the gradual devaluation of Britain’s currency.
The institutions of law and legislature have become embroiled in the argument and counterargument such that the foundations of Britain’s centuries-old parliamentary authority are, perhaps fatally, undermined.
These effects may be presaged by Neptune’s square to Jupiter, significator of law and legislature, weakened by its detriment in Gemini and placed in the 3rd house. Also ominous of future woes and calamity is the exact conjunction of Neptune with asteroid Melpomene, muse of tragedy. Without any doubt, the combination of these deceiving, quixotic visions of a better future outside of Europe have unleashed a legacy of woe upon the very fabric of Britain, no matter the eventual outcome.
At a more esoteric level, the muses are the daughters of memory. This is quite literally true as they are the offspring of Mnemosyne (goddess of remembrance) and her consort, Zeus. Wherever any of the muses is configured in the astrology there is a strong connection to memories, which are an individual retrospection. The recollections of a personal past determine the expectations of how the future might unfold, and approaches to that future are selected or rejected accordingly. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder precisely because the formative experiences of an individual that constitute their expectations are the remembered preferences and aversions of a subjective past.
The muses model idealism based on accepted past norms. We understand what is beautiful in art because we have seen good art and bad, and while there will always be outliers, a consensus is formed, which is itself part of one’s expectations of all that is right and good. The muses represent then, an attempt to personify the process of understanding what perfection looks like. As a result, one can perhaps appreciate the potential of their power in a mundane chart. For a great many people, especially those who are older, whose past travels further back and has thereby been more radically supplanted by change, the difference between what the perfect society is and the society they find themselves in is fundamentally more jarring.
These are the people who have been most hopelessly seduced by Melpomene’s hinted vision of Brexit. It is a vision of Britain once described by former Prime Minister John Major as: “the country of long shadows on county grounds, warm beer, invincible green suburbs, dog lovers and pools fillers.” (2) The older generation voted overwhelmingly to reclaim this halcyon past, seemingly unconcerned with whether or not it was possible to recapture it.
George Orwell was another who attempted to frame this English utopia which seems to have become a part of the fabric of the Brexit dream. He once described an English civilisation and concluded that it was “somehow bound up with solid breakfasts and gloomy Sundays, smoky towns and winding roads, green fields and red pillar-boxes.” (3)
The Brexit chart is fascinating, then, because of its appealing allusion to a better and more comforting past. But let us now examine the broad strokes of the Brexit Bill, the actual piece of legislation that made the referendum possible in the first place. As stated, its name was spoken aloud on January 23rd for the first time. A private members bill was given its first reading on June 19th, the second reading on July 5th, and on November 30th, Parliament approved the bill, promising to hold a referendum on Britain’s membership of the EU by 2017. (4)
Let us now compare the passage of the EU Referendum Bill with transits of Pluto to Britain’s Sun.
January 1, 1801
12:00 a.m. LMT
London, England (51N30, 0W10′)
2013: Transiting Pluto and the British Sun (10°10’ Capricorn)
(1/3 refers to the first of three exact transits, etc.)
The symmetry, despite its disenchanting consequence, is beautiful. There is a 72-hour variance between Brexit’s proposal and acceptance into law with Pluto’s transit to the U.K. Sun, which, let us not forget, is an event that has not happened within the scope of the U.K.’s most current astrology. (5) In the previous chart for Great Britain, that of the Norman Conquest (Christmas Day 1066), the last transit of Pluto conjunct the British Sun occurred through 1767, as the British colonies in America were agitating for independence. (6) At that time the most significant events relating to British sovereignty centred upon the Townshend Acts, which attempted to impose taxes on various trade goods moving in and out of Boston in the American colonies. (7) Of those goods, perhaps the most prominent was, rather prophetically, tea. American patriots responded to the legislation by arguing that they should not be taxed while they held no sway in the Parliament to which they were subject (“no taxation without representation”). It was this series of legislations which really hardened attitudes against British rule and gave rise to the American War of Independence. After this disastrous American experiment, Britain never again dared to impose direct taxation of any of her colonies, and it really marked the beginning of the end for the British Empire.
Two-and-a-half centuries before, during the Pluto-to-Sun transit of 1520–21, the same question was asked of Henry VIII. Who holds the power: King or Pope? The first pretensions to absolute authority must have stirred early on in young King Henry’s breast, married as he was to his brother’s widow but with a famously roving eye. Within a decade, the battle was joined, and after the Protestant Reformation, the Church of Rome never again held so much authority. Under Pluto, the test of sovereignty is absolute and chooses right every time.
If we take a long view of the prevailing dynamics of British rule at each of these transits, it is therefore possible to glean some of the key foundations of the mundane Pluto-to-Sun transit. The principal question of this transit is, “Who really holds the power?” Since the Sun is representative of leaders — traditionally of Kings and Queens, but latterly of elected Heads of State and sovereign bodies — this transit will always conduct a fierce examination of the underlying principles of power. Pluto has this effect, wherever he narrows his focus, of testing for existential validity. To fail the test leads to annihilation, and the old, indestructible crucible of Hades is once again readied for the formulation of new and stronger alloys.

The most referenced chart is for the foundation of the United Kingdom – the legal union of great Britain and Ireland: January 1, 1801; 00:00 LMT; London, England.

On January 9, July 31, and November 10, 1767, transiting Pluto was conjunct the Sun, as shown below.
(7) It is commonly held that there were five Townshend Acts passed by British Parliament: two on June 5, 1726, two on June 29, 1767, and the last on July 26, 1768. Resistance to the Townshend Acts eventually led to the Boston Massacre of 1770.

Vedic Astrology Brexit 2020
No mention of Scotland who is very against Brexit and the fact our Independence Referendum will soon be held again and are showing a majority who will vote for it this time because of Brexit, or is your interpretation of UK is only England.
The analysis covers the chart of the entire UK, not just England. There are many ways to break down the result and of course one of those is regionally. The result was very close in terms of population. 26% voted to leave, 25% to remain, 19% did not vote, and 30% were ineligible. The Scots vote was 62% remain and 38% to leave. Over 50s voted twice as much to leave as the under 25s.
Some of the breakdown can be viewed here: https://yougov.co.uk/topics/politics/articles-reports/2016/06/27/how-britain-voted
Nadia comaneci astrology. Astrologically, it would be a separate study to consider the impact of transits to the national chart at the time of the Brexit legislation.
The most commonly used Scottish chart for those who wish to study it, is March 25th 1005, Midday, Penrith. This places the Scots Sun in a 2 minute square to the UK Sun. Evidently, while the UK is undergoing this series of transits, Scotland is experiencing a Pluto-Sun square. This is undoubtedly highly significant, as it indicates that Scotland is also experiencing a fierce examination of its sovereignty as a result of Brexit.
If there is a future referendum on Scottish Independence then this will of course represent a new ‘birth’ chart for Scotland.
A brief examination of transits to the 1005 chart suggests that if there are major transformations then perhaps 2026, as Pluto crosses the descendant will be significant. This has the potential to change the nation’s relationship with her primary partner(s) as one might imagine.
Elaine – it is interesting to me that the first minister in Scotland’s birthday is the 18th July so Pluto will very shortly be opposing her natal sun. I am not familiar with the rest of her chart but that opposition alone suggests that a transformation and re-structuring (Saturn also in opposition) will be occurring, which will, of course, also affect Scotland. Interestingly, Angela Merkel’s birthday falls on the 17th July so similar transits to Nicola Sturgeon and she has given notice that she is handing over the Chancellorship of Germany to another woman. So much dredging has been going on but next year’s Saturn/Pluto conjunction along with Jupiter in Capricorn is going to shake it all about!
Brexit is more than just recapturing the past. In the past we had something called sovereignty, and not all leave voters were old, or white or live in the countryside. Overwhelmingly remainers are left leaning, middle class, possess jobs that rely on government money and realise that out of the EU will likely make them poor. Out of the EU does not mean a hatred of Europe, even King Henry understood that, he wanted England to be seen as an individual country and not just a cash cow, in hock to the Pope and his cronyism. Mnemosyne might have something to say about individual sovereignty and remembering who you are actually. That is the choice, to be subsumed and forgotten, or break away and renew.
Although I voted Remain at the time I would not do so again . I agree with Eve that the issue is about sovereignty and not being subjects of a Franco .German agenda which valorises unity but in which this axis acts unilaterally. Germany seems to pay for the grandiose ideas of the French from that sense of guilt about the Holocaust which haunts that country still even when not voiced.
On Scotland. ….and I am connected by descent to Scotland and consequently love the people….some forget that in 1603. Lord Cecil gifted James Vl of Scotland the countries of
England and Wales and Scotland hit the financial big time and ruled England successfully under James who was a canny man . however James II s desire to return England Wales and Scotland …perhaps substitute the EU here…. to the sway of superstition and well. all sorts of.mismanagement. … did for the . I mention it just to point out that Scotland dominated then as it did with Blair and Browns Labour government.
LASTLY….Corbyn s anti Semetism and admiration for terror groups worries me much more than Boris …
Jeremy – thank you for your detailed and thoughtful consideration of the Brexit charts.
I find it terrifying that so many people in the UK (not just England, note) have been fooled and lured through notions of ‘sovereignty’ and ‘freedom’ (plus the latent racist tendencies of so many) into lurching further and further towards a far right, neoliberal regime which can only cause harm to the people of our country. Neptune is riding high. and charlatans like Johnson, Farage and Cummings are taking full advantage of it.
Pluto can be cruel and it doesn’t necessarily clear away the old for something better to take its place. Much pain and hardship will come from these political changes, and the people who are voting for them take no responsibility for the impact of their votes – I am not sure they even realize. But how could they be so blind to the total foulup that the Tories have made of this country in the past nine years? It beggars belief.
I would be interested to know what you see in the future, both for the UK and for England. I note the Pluto Saturn conjunction opposite the 1801 Moon.
