Like much of the country, I was glued to the TV last night as the British Parliament took back control. It was theatrical.
The cabal of profiteers sitting on the front bench, who currently control the Conservative party and government, visibly deflated and began to fray.
The odious Rees Mogg, (“leader of the house” no less) actually slid down the front bench, looking like a peevish tween who’s been ticked off by nanny. Prime Minister Johnson blustered, fumed and rumpled like a cartoon baddie. You could almost see the steam coming out of his ears and the thought bubble with lighting and squiggles above his head.
Meanwhile on the other side of the House, Corbyn rose to the occasion and his usually irritating schoolmaster act was pitch perfect. Soubry was magnificent as always, dominating the Conservative party, who bayed at her like hunting dogs. Lucas gave a storming speech, and on it went.
You’ll be pleased to here that every single one of the leading actors I’ve mentioned so far was born under the sign of the Twins. Yes, Geminis to a woman. And there you have some lovely astrology. As I said in Gemini’s horoscope, the massive T-square in the sky is pointing at YOU.
This is a classic astrological technique. When you have a T-square in one quality – this month it’s mutable: Jupiter in Sagittarius, Neptune in Pisces, and the massive stellium in Virgo – look to the missing sign, in this case Gemini. They will be under pressure, releasing pressure. As we saw last night, it can go either way… depends how you respond to it.
Gemini’s ruler, Mercury, who rules communications and with Gemini especially the spoken word, was conjunct the Sun much of yesterday — and part of a stellium with Mars and Venus. Speeches mattered, words were weapons. I’ve just read that Rees Mogg’s nasty little speech actually had the reverse effect from the one he intended: members of his own party crossed the house to get away from him.
I refer you also to the piece I wrote in May, about the Conservative party. This is very serious for them — and possibly terminal.
For the benefit of my non-UK readers. The result last night was that the legislature (parliament) took back control from the executive. Today they will try to force through a law stopping a “no-deal” Brexit. This is ironic since, of course, the Leave campaign slogan was “Take Back Control”.
However, this is going to be a busy fortnight, with twists and turns daily, sharp corners and S-bends — leading up to that dynamic, dramatic Full Moon in Pisces on September 14.
