Who’d be a politician, let alone Prime Minister. Watching Theresa May at the press conference in the aftermath of the little summit in Salzburg, few of us would want to be in her shoes, stylish as they may be.

Theresa May

Given the hype surrounding the meeting of EU leaders in Salzburg and the belief that it was going to be something of a turning point in the fortunes of Mrs May and Brexit, quite the reverse took place. She was humiliated and, if anything, her European counterparts became even more entrenched. “Non. Nein. Nie”.

I do not have an accurate chart for Mrs May, but have been playing around with a 15:30 time of birth which yields a Capricorn Ascendant and Saturn conjunct a Scorpio Mid-heaven. To my mind, this reflects the Prime Minister’s serious, somewhat stilted persona and her capacity to stand strong in adversity, which is an almost permanent state of affairs since the Brexit result.

If this chart is anywhere near correct then Pluto has been hovering over her Ascendant since she came to power, and while this planet of transformation marked her ascent to the premiership it has the capacity also to dethrone her. And given that Pluto will be stationary direct next week as the Tory party prepares for its annual conference, a tough ride is the least she can expect; a serious threat to her leadership is more likely.

Theresa May has been given a most difficult set of cards to play with in the game of Brexit, and, even though she may lack the charisma of some of her forerunners, the country needs a steady hand on the tiller in this storm-tossed sea.

Speaking of which, whatever the angles of her chart, Neptune is currently conjunct her Mars in Pisces, making her journey through the Brexit process something of an endless night sea crossing. Dark, turbulent and foggy. Neptune’s erosive and misleading properties are not only making her negotiations with Brussels a nightmare but she is being undermined by her friends and her enemies alike.

24th Sep 2018 - 30th Sep 2018

As you can tell from your individual forecasts September goes out on a challenging note. And that challenging note is issued by a T-square involving the full moon on the Aries-Libra axis squared by Saturn.Full moons occur every 28 days and together with the new moon create that familiar cycle of endings and beginnings.

But some full moon endings are more powerful than others, as is this. Not quite on the cardinal points but near, regimes and chapters hit the buffers, in some cases in spectacular style. In Great Britain, the Tory party and Theresa May will have to weather some very uncertain weather during the forthcoming annual conference, which opens in Birmingham on the 30th, and it seems someone or something has to go.

Our Libran Prime Minister may be dangerously near her sell-by date, and Brexit requires major surgery. Hopefully, this astro-scape will provide the necessary fuel to set the country on a firmer, stronger course.


September 2018

Libra: A confident approach in affairs of the heart and at work or with finance will do wonders for your upwardly-mobile progress. The week of the 10th has success written all over it.


Cooking Under The Stars

An excerpt from Woman&Home magazine...

Penny Thornton learned how to cook at around the same time she was taking astrology classes. Back in the late 1970s, her then-husband was a sous-chef at London's Dorchester Hotel. Then in the mid-90s, Penny, who was living in the US, had a ten-minute daily slot on the Food Network, combining astrology and food.

As Penny explains, "The relationship between astrology and food is based on the ancient belief that all things in the universe are connected. Animals, birds, fish and plants were all 'ruled' by a planet or sign."

Penny's new book, The Zodiac Cooks, embraces her two passions. It's an amusing and informative gastronomic romp through the zodiac alongside delicious recipes. So read on to find out whether you really are suited to spelt...
