Brexit: the Next Episode

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

Financial Astrology: Eclipses & the Stock Market

Can astrology tell us anything about upcoming trends in the stock markets?

Astrological Review of April 2012

Last month, we witnessed the annual stationing of Pluto, once again in the sign of Capricorn, on April the 10th /11th. Coming on the back of the double-whammy of the Mercury and Mars retrogrades, which resulted in major travel delays, loss of data, and a distinct decrease in physical vitality or the ability to make good progress, this stationing also coincided with the resignation of arch-conservative Republican candidate, Rick Santorum, from… Continue reading Astrological Review of April 2012

Astrological Review of March 2012

Rather fittingly from an astrological standpoint, these events corresponded with the stationing of Pluto in Capricorn (17th); retrograde since May 2011, which many astrologers consider to symbolise the need formajor reform of the world’s financial and political institutions, as well as the need… Continue reading Astrological Review of September 2011

Astrological Review of August 2011

No sooner had the phone hacking scandal dissipated then the UK was hit by global stock market volatility with European and American shares falling to record lows in the wake of uncertainty about US and Italian national debts at the start of August. A few days later, a number of flashmobs and riots broke out, starting in Tottenham, London on the 6th, soon spreading across the UK the following week, accompanied by wholesale looting of certain high street shops . At the time, Pluto and Uranus in cardinal signs came within… Continue reading Astrological Review of August 2011
