  • South Africa – poised on the brink of catastrophe

    No Comments
      South Africa is not only teetering on the brink of being downgraded economically to junk status, with soaring unemployment and zero growth; but of heading into a protracted period of political and social turmoil. In recent elections the ruling ANC had its worst result in 22 years since the end of apartheid, losing control of all major cities to the opposition. President Zuma has reacted by refusing to interfere in what most say are trumped up charges against the Finance Minister and seizing control of the economy himself. A South African commentator wrote in Business Day, based in Johannesburg: “This unschooled man has pronounced himself commander-in-chief of the economy. In doing so, he has grabbed control of all the …Keep reading »
  • Scottish independence referendum receding

    No Comments
      A second Scottish independence referendum has become more remote with the latest economic figures showing a glaring deficit in the Scottish budget – spending £14.8 billion more in 2015-16 than was raised in taxes. This is equivalent to 9.5 per cent of Scotland’s Gross Domestic Product, more than double four per cent for the UK as a whole, and treble what the EU expect. Scotland contributed 7.9 per cent of UK tax and received 9.1 per cent of UK spending, which is £1,200 per person greater than the UK average. Nicola Sturgeon’s Term chart 12 May 2016 9.35am Edinburgh, has a high-hopes-dashed Neptune opposition Jupiter squaring onto a setback-prone Mars Saturn conjunction. There is a fairly solid Earth Grand …Keep reading »
  • Italy earthquake – Mars Saturn + Antares

    1 Comment
      The earthquake in Italy this morning at 3.36am local time, near Perugia, has left at least 73 dead with 150 missing. It happened as the tr Mars tr Saturn was close to exact (11 minutes, approx. one sixth of a degree) and conjunct the Fixed Star Antares, which is thought to have a destructive side. This quake was similar in intensity to the 6 April 2009 Italian l’Aquila quake which killed 309, and occurred on a Saturn opposition Mars Uranus. And the catastrophic series of quakes in 1703 which set off on 14 Jan 1703, and may have killed as many as 10,000, started with Mars conjunct Saturn Jupiter Neptune in Aries. So Mars Saturn certainly a signature – …Keep reading »
  • France elections – fighting for the country’s soul

    No Comments
      Nicolas Sarkozy has bounced back into French political life running in the primary for the centre-right party leadership, which votes this November, in preparation for the Presidential election next April/May. He’s running on a nationalist ticket, emphasising French identity and way of life, hoping to eat into Marine Le Pen’s far-right vote. His limp legacy from his last term in office tells against him, as does a complicated series of legal investigations against him; and it’s by no means certain he’ll be the chosen one. Born 28 January 1955 10am Paris, he has an attention-seeking 5th house Aquarius Sun sextile a fiery (seven impossible things before breakfast) Moon Mars in Aries in his 7th. Plus a relentlessly Fixed Mercury …Keep reading »
  • Clinton Foundation and Hillary – a risky association

    No Comments
      The Clinton Foundation started relatively small, incorporated 23 Oct 1997, and has grown into a multi-billion dollar charitable organisation which does a great deal of good. But there are persistent questions about the privileged access major donors were given to Hillary Clinton during her time as Secretary of State. It was incorporated with a Scorpio Sun Mercury square an enterprising, innovative and lucky Neptune Uranus Jupiter. The CF Sun is, of course, conjunct Hillary’s; and the CF Jupiter opposes her Mars Pluto; with its Pluto conjunct her Jupiter – so it will be close to her heart; though with a tendency to over-expansion or unwise over-confident judgements. The relationship chart between herself and the Foundation has a composite Uranus …Keep reading »
  • Vincent Foster – Hillary’s history being dissected

    No Comments
      Attacks on Hillary Clinton are mounting with Trump finger-pointing at the Clinton Foundation and raising old conspiracy theories about the 1993 death of Vincent Foster, an Arkansas lawyer and Clinton friend, who became Deputy White House counsel to Bill Clinton.  Anti-Clintonites are determined it was  a murder, despite five investigations  categorically saying it was suicide. Foster had been involved in several controversies, a failed nomination for attorney general and the firing of the travel office staff so business could be steered to the president’s allies. In 1993 he was being treated for depression. In his briefcase there was a torn-up note, which said: “I was not meant for the job or the spotlight of public life in Washington. Here ruining people is considered …Keep reading »

  • Gaza – on the brink again

    No Comments
      Gaza is on tenterhooks waiting to see whether new hard-line Israeli Defence Minister Avigdor Lieberman will escalate border tensions. Hamas is blaming recent rocket attacks on Al Quaeda cells in Gaza whom they clearly don’t have control over. Israel has retaliated more robustly than at any time over the past two years, both sides until now having been holding to an uneasy truce. The Israel/Gaza (9 Nov 1917 9am) relationship chart does indicate a radical shift from early September with tr Uranus square the composite Pluto and conjunct Uranus after that, running on till April 2017. The Gaza chart itself isn’t under quite the same strain as it was in Dec 2008 when a full-out Israeli assault took place. …Keep reading »
