Politics and astrology...
Politics are so vividly in the news in the United Kingdom that someone commented this week that more had happened in five hours, than in five years!

Yet what IS the role of astrology in all this? Well, the conservative, with a small c nature of British politics, suggests that any use of astrological portents would be kept very much under wraps. Of course the big picture shows that Mercury (ideas and discussion) is in a very potent angle with Pluto (change and transformation), whilst Saturn (traditional, orthodox structures) continues to be opposite Uranus (the revolutionary). Both these influences point to seismic changes.

Yet American politics is different. For example, President Theodore Roosevelt`s birth chart was laid out on a chess board in the Oval Office. Yet history books omit the fact that Benjamin Franklin selected the date of Washington`s first inauguration using Elective Astrology.

George Washington, America`s First President, whose metaphysical leanings are well known due to his supposed angelic vision at Valley Forge, which illuminated America`s future. Indeed, the astrological chart of George Washington reveals a susceptibility to unexpected visions and expanded consciousness, as his Sun in Pisces predisposed him to intuitive and mystical orientation. These abilities were then structured by his Moon in Capricorn, eminent in many political leaders by birth or throughtheirProgressedMoon`s.Washington`s Moon placement turned philosophical ideas into form, along with an earthy Taurus Ascendant, giving practical formulation to universal sciences.

Abraham Lincoln, America`s 16th President, also held an avid interest in astrological sciences. His Natal Sun in the farsighted Aquarius, initiated the humanitarian decision to abolish slavery. This Presidential leader also had a philosophical Sagittarius career placement conjunct with the powerful Saturn and the mystical Neptune, allowing him to spearhead political reforms for the disadvantaged. An altruistic standpoint further reinforced by a predominance of planets in the sacrificial and psychic Pisces, perhaps also explaining his reluctance to attend the theatre, on the eve of his assassination.

Then of course, there is Ronald Reagan, the 40th President of the United States, who for many years had a resident astrologer advising him and his wife Nancy, after he survived an assassination attempt in 1981. Reagan`s Sun sign was again in Aquarius, whilst a Taurus Moon and a multitude of Capricorn planets, once again display an uncanny link and interest in astrology.

As for the disbelievers, a quote from Herbert Spencer states There is no bar to knowledge greater than contempt, prior to examination. Here, here! Perhaps the current British political log jam would benefit from some divine celestial intervention! Westminster, we await your calls!
