MAY 26

INDIA VOTES AND WHO'S COUNTING

The recent Indian election was the largest democratic exercise in history. It stretched from April 11 until May 19 with over 600 million, or 67% of the population, casting a vote. The day before voting ended, the incumbent Prime Minister Narendra Modi, found himself meditating in a Himalayan cave. He emerged to a landslide victory.

The Modi phenomena is unique in India. He is a Hindu nationalist, criticised for populist polarity politics, yet embodying a universal trend. In February this year, I wrote about India, following the Kashmir terrorist bombings of an Indian military convoy. Modi had ordered retaliatory airstrikes on Pakistan, with the two countries on the brink of territorial war. There were further political considerations for Modi, who had recently visited the area.

Modi's party was suffering in the polls. Traditional supporters, such as the farmers, were marching in the streets. Unemployment was hitting a 45 year peak with the economy slowing. Kashmir changed the focus, placing security high on the agenda and heightening nationalist fervour. Despite his party's grim outlook, I thought and wrote that Modi's re-election chances were high. I based it partly on conservative Saturn's slow progression across India's birth Sun.

THE ORIGINAL INAUGURATION

Not only was the Saturn indicative of the privations and austerity that Indians were experiencing, but the ringed planet also exemplifies the politics of fear and right wing conservatism. Rising nationalism is all tied in with this. Another important factor involved with Narendra Modi's unprecedented success, was his initial swearing in chart of May 26 2014 @ 18.13 hours in New Delhi.

Until he is defeated, the 2014 swearing in chart remains in effect. It is one of the most powerful swearing in charts I have seen. This inauguration horoscope is no cosmic coincidence and has all the hallmarks of a moment carefully chosen for successful reign. It shows why, that in India, astrology is taken a lot more seriously than in the west. Modi, was returned with an even bigger landslide than his first win.

BREXIT CLAIMS ANOTHER BRITISH PM

Britain is well known for doing soap operas well, from Coronation Street to East Enders and in between. But surely the never ending Brexit is having a greater effect than all. On Friday morning at approximately 10.04 am it claimed its biggest victim, with the resignation of Prime Minister Theresa May, effective June 7.

Her resignation was an inevitability, following three decisive parliamentary defeats on her Brexit plans. The January 01 1801 Great Britain horoscope was clear about the defeat of a leader as by June 7, the opposition of a retro Saturn, will be exact to the tenth house Moon. The 'eclipsing' effect of the Nodes to the same Moon seem to have timed here announcement.

But the legal framework of a Brexit agreement will drag on. The 'go to chart' on this issue is the moment that Great Britain joined the European Communities. The Union Jack was hoisted at midnight in Brussels on January 1 1973, signifying the moment. The chart proved an effective indicator predicting Brexit.

I wrote back in the day, suggesting that the newspaper and opinion polls would be proven wrong and that the 'leave' vote would prevail. The irony of this is that it is judged purely by the timing. When David Cameron put it to the people, whether to stay or whether to leave, he did so as the planet of independence, Uranus, was opposing its position when Great Britain joined.

The transit of Saturn was also in opposition to its 1973 position of joining. Even the Sun was in wide opposition. This emphasis on oppositions to the original joining chart painted a clear picture for leave. But its purely based on timing.

Back in February of 1975, Harold Wilson, proposed a referendum about staying or leaving and the vote was over 60% to stay. So public opinion will vary. During July 2019, a transit of Jupiter will oppose Saturn and a transit Saturn will join Jupiter on the chart of Great Britain joining the European Communities. This shows a greater concentration on the legal aspects of the union and looks to be an important negotiation period.

THERE IS NO TRICKERY INVOLVED IN MY NEXT TRICK

Definitely the quote of the week, probably the whole year, goes to Donald Trump for his classic clanger, “I am probably – and I think most of you would agree to this – I'm the most transparent President probably in the history of this country”. Amazingly there was no applause. The press too stunned to react?

At precisely 11.18 am in Washington, with erratic Uranus right on the administrative Midheaven, Donald Trump staged a walkout on a meeting between Congress and himself about improving America's failing infrastructure. He used it as an opportunity to drive a further wedge between the presidential office and government.

Then followed a pre-prepared yet rambling self-defence, including his incongruous transparency quote, coupled with the claim, “I don't do cover ups!” Does he suddenly forget who David Dennison was? Trump is living in his own fantasy when he prompted his captive audience with, 'I think most of you would agree with this.'

Trump is trying his biggest cover ups right now as judicial Jupiter retros back in opposition to his Sun. There are deeper ramifications as the Trump administration pursues the extradition of Julian Assange, probably the biggest whistle-blower of our time. Freedom of the press is under siege and suppression of the truth under Trump is heading into seriously dangerous waters.

More on that next week. Meanwhile the side-splitting ”I'm the most transparent President probably in the history of this country” resonates around the globe. We've just got to figure out which damn country he was referring to.

Aries or Aries Rising weekly horoscope: There is a shift in energy now. It moves away from the materialistic, set in stone, security style focus toward more flexibility and movement. This is a mentally stimulating period, during which your subject interests are heightened and you're feeling more inspired to either learn from, or teach others around you. If you have a talent for writing, Mercury's connection to imaginative Neptune and futuristic Jupiter can bring that alive at the month's end. Also good for short journey's and getaways.

Sagittarius or Sagittarius Rising weekly horoscope: After the 21st the Sun and Mercury, will combine and oppose your sign.

Capricorn or Capricorn Rising weekly horoscope:
The latter part of May has a more practical application than the first three weeks, which is better suited to providing the inspiration. Now is the time for your turning ideas in practical form – for perfecting your craft – for fine tuning your initiatives. It's essential to be aware of quality control in whatever you're doing, but equally important, not to be so critical that you jam your creative process.

Aquarius or Aquarius Rising weekly horoscope: It's important to establish some solid grounding during the first three weeks of May. From the 21st on, suits a loosening up. It's like, having established where you stand, or found your place, you can now feel more confident about your expressing yourself, within a more predictable or certain environment. That's the general idea, the goal so to speak. The entry of the Sun and Mercury, simultaneously into Gemini, creates a traditional astrology aspect known as cazimi, where the Mercury is right in the heart of the Sun. This strong combination suits beginning projects and especially those that are media related.

Pisces or Pisces Rising weekly horoscope: Toward the very end of May, it may be wiser to adopt a more cautious approach. It's important to spot the shysters, as Mercury squares obfuscating Neptune and then opposes overblown Jupiter, on the 30th and 31st respectively. It may not affect all of Pisces, but best to be sure if your birthday falls anywhere between March 10 to 14. Double check your communications, seek an alternative opinion or delay important agreements or dealing if in the slightest doubt.
