As the stars foretold, Boris Johnson finally managed to fulfil his lifelong ambition of winning the keys to Number 10 Downing Street on 22 July 2019. Now, however, the question on everybody's lips is whether he will be able to hang onto them, or if, like David Cameron and Theresa May, he will become another… Continue reading Blonde Ambition: An Astrological Profile of Boris Johnson
CAN THE 1801 UNION CHART HELP US PREDICT WHERE BREXIT WILL END? A lot has happened in British politics in the last month. As Mercury turned retrograde for the last three weeks of March, things seesawed back and forth, catapaulting Parliament from one shambles into another, with the Prime Minister and the House of Commons vying… Continue reading Brexit: Is the UK really in danger of breaking up?
What's the likely outcome of Mercury's next plot twist in the Brexit saga? A lot has happened in British politics since my last blog post just a week or two ago. Not only has Libran, Theresa May, backed down from her rather hardline stance at the beginning of last week, to be replaced by a… Continue reading Brexit: the Next Episode
Theresa May lost last night's Brexit deal vote. But being the tough Saturn in Scorpio 'difficult woman' that she is, she's not giving up. Between now and the deadline of 31 March, MP's will now be subjected to an increasing number of pincer movements by the government as the UK prime minister attempts to force… Continue reading Brexit Vote: Next Steps
A lot can happen in two years, and my goodness, there have been so many twists in this particular tale since that historic (and controversial) vote back in June 2016.

A look at the Scorpio New Moon and the US mid-term elections... As Americans take to the poll to vote on who they want in Congress, it's time to take the temperature on where America is in relation to the Trump presidency. As an astrologer, I can't help noticing that the 2018 US mid-terms are… Continue reading A Victory with a Sting in its Tail?
Since the ANC's leadership elections in December 2017, where Cyril Ramaphosa, seemingly against the odds, managed to emerge as the victor, there has been much speculation about how long Jacob Zuma had as SA president before he was forced to step down. According to party insiders, that moment has been imminent since the lunar eclipse… Continue reading Et tu, Brute? Has the cat with nine lives finally run out of chances?
It is no small exaggeration to say that the 2017 UK General Election is probably one of the most important elections the UK has held in a very long time.
What happens in June 2017 stands to have a major impact on its future direction - and potentially also it's very existence!
Naturally, as an astrologer, I couldn't help myself from 'having a punt' at what the potential outcome may be. Having spent the last two elections 'getting my eye in,' hopefully this time I will be in a better position to avoid the common assumptions and pitfalls, and get things right first time round...

This dramatic transit coincided with the triggering of Brexit by Theresa May but also with a rapidly growing leadership crisis in South Africa that lead to the Rand, going into freefall and culminating just a few days later with one credit ratings agency re-assigning their currency to junk status.
