Nasa-Mars mystery-conference chart

Tomorrow, at 11:30 a.m. in Houston TX, Nasa will tell us about the 'Mars mystery solved' (see the announcement here: ) and above is the chart of that moment. I find it interesting that the symbol of things mysterious (Neptune) is on the meridian and opposite Mars on that day, time and place. That is why I posted this chart. Also Saturn (in this situation for Science) is on the Ascendant. Are you as curious as I am?

Libra and wrestler Stephanie McMahon's chart

The American female wrestler Stephanie McMahon is a Libra, with Moon (conjunct Pluto) and Mars in Libra, too. Her Mars is 'calling' (action at any possible level), just like Mercury, Venus and Uranus. Mars in Libra is the symbol of a fight for two, between equals. Het chart has an important Saturn, first rising outer planet before the Sun. This makes her first of all a business woman. Also, people with Saturn rising before the Sun tend to follow in the footsteps of the parents. Her father is the CEO of the World Wrestling Organization and that explains a lot. 
You can see the director screenplay in the chart by means of the 'calling' end dispositor of Midheaven, Mercury (writer), together with Neptune in aspect with the Libra Moon and Venus (the creative/artistic pattern). She writes stories for the wrestling theatre. If you want to see more examples of the pattern of artistic talents in a chart, go to my blog

Viktor Orbán (Hungary) and transits of Saturn

Astrothème provides this chart of Hungary's PM Viktor Orbán, PM of Hungary, for 14.00 hours on May 31, 1963. Here you his chart with transits and progressions. They are not easy.

1. The progressed Midheaven conjunct natal Uranus nicely mirrors that there is controversy around him. People are fore or against him. And there is a hectic, unexpected situation (Uranus!)
2. With Transit Saturn trine Progressed Sun there is also stability now, continuity and self respect. This won't last for long. Saturn moves, like the refugees do. 
3. Transit Saturn will be square his MC soon, if Astrothème is right about his hour of birth.  Transits of Saturn are hard.

Doesn't this show his present position? 
Some consider him as the goal-keeper of Europe. Others see him as a rebel against Europe, modern democracy and Merkel's policy. They picture him like a modern Hitler and then his fans come to show their support. But in these hectic times one thing is certain: there is criticism. And that is so Saturn, just like blockades, borders and restrictions. The combination of Uranus and Saturn issues the theme of breaking free (or not). 

Charts don't tell us what will happen. The symbols are flexible. All depends on gender, genes, social and economic or political circumstances...Orbán's Sun and Moon are in flexible signs. Borders sometimes are and sometimes not...

View on Budapest
You can see all of what is going on in that chart. For a view on Orbán, today, see: and think of transit Saturn (criticism all around).

Neptune was in Pisces in the days of the Migration (4th century) and in days of revolution. Uranus-Pluto stresses nations and creates a lot of unrest throughout the ages. Two important factors contributed to the present situation and it will not end untill Saturn is conjunct Uranus (a new order). The chart of Europe and Hungary will show what's next. 
Quoting myself:
In 376 the Migration Period (see Wikipedia) began that ended the Roman Empire and was the start of the Early Middle Ages. From February 375 till March 379 Neptune was in the first degrees of Pisces. Neptune in Pisces mirrored a period of ideological wars and revolutionary changes. The Migration Period lasted for ages, but started then, with Neptune in early Pisces.

Schengen Agreement: the astrological situation

I wondered: how is chart of the day of the implementation of the Schengen Agreement (that provided free traffic in the countries of the European Union) today, now that the borders are getting closed following the enormous numbers of immigrants trying to reach Germany. Here you see the chart of March 26, 1995 with transits and progressions of yesterday:
Transit Saturn is on the Ascendant, Chiron is on IC and transit Pluto is square progressed MC, inconjunct progressed Descendant. In other words: trouble. Also, the progressed Sun and Moon are getting closer and closer to a square with Neptune. Such a square means confusion and sometimes decay. Saturn will be trine the natal Sun in November, maybe creating a more stabile situation, though the stress and  pressure continues (Pluto still square Progressed MC).

Isn't it amazing that Saturn is opposition MC, Pluto on the Ascendant and Chiron on MC when Schengen became effective? The 'corner stones' of the chart (Saturn, Pluto and Chiron) are in aspect with the angles again. Transits and progression with Saturn, Pluto or Chiron happen to be very important because they are important in the natal chart, especially Saturn, because Saturn also rises before the Sun. This all marks an important period in 'Schengen's life'. Usually they don't mean easy times.

Jeremy Corbyn, 2020 and astrology

Jeremy Corbyn is the new leader of Labour and he is an old style socialist, grown in the belly of the unions. There are plenty of messages on the internet about his sympathies and opinions. He has strong friends and ditto enemies in his own party, so he is a controversial persion. How nice would it be, for the astrologer, if he had a Sun-Uranus aspect…but he has not. What he does have, is a Uranus semi square Pluto aspect that is likely to have been activated in the past 4 years of Uranus square Pluto (see this link: )
It is rebel time! Time for the rebels!

Air, no water, Sun Gemini/Moon Taurus

The chart of the day of birth of Jeremy Corbyn is not so extraordinary. What is missing in the chart, are placements in water signs. There are a lot of placements in air signs (Gemini, Virgo, Aquarius).That is an important characteristic. In my article about not aspected planets, and missing placements in elements ( ) you may read this about having no planets in water signs (Cancer, Scorpio or Pisces):

No water:This calls for looking for emotions and the feeling to ‘belong’. This person is sometimes sentimental, other times without much empathy.

There isn’t much ‘control’ of sentiments. He is ‘all air’, talkative, communicative and reasoning. That is what he does best.

As his hour of birth is a big question mark, I can’t see if the Moon or Mars is the first to rise before the Sun on the day of his birth. The Moon would indicate involvement, the party-member. Mars would be for the activist. And the conjunction rising before the Sun would make him long for action.

Now we have a communicative person with a desire to ‘belong’ to a family or party somehow, anyhow, and with a need for action. The Moon in Taurus explains the Marxism (Taurus focuses on material things), the Gemini Sun makes him communicate about it. 

Now Jeremy Corbyn has an astro-Twin,  Scottish Mrs McGuire, also Labour party member, born on the same day and in the same year. She wanted to be able to speak freely on the subject of disabilities. Unlike Mr. Corbyn, she is an extreme loyalist (!). So what position in the natal chart could show the tendency to vote against the party’s wishes? Uranus (controversy) or Eris (discord) must be important.

As he is a controversial person, elected on a ‘Sun inconjunct Uranus-day’ (a day with a enormous surprise) and because Uranus doesn’t make any aspects with Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus or Mars (surprisingly) I suppose that Uranus has a corner position in the chart (either on the horizon or on the meridian). And the party communicator…the journalist, too, are in the chart, but where is the leader in the chart

Warning: what follows is all speculation!

A birth time of 23 hours would place the Sun in the 5th house (for leadership) and bring Uranus on the Descendant, in the 7th house, still in Gemini in the final degree*). Meanwhile, the Sun/Moon midpoint is semi square Saturn, to illustrate ambition and the motivation to be a manager. This also motivates him to be careful with other people's money (Saturn in 8). But OK, his real time of birth is unknown...

On September 12, 2015, the day that he became Labour’s leader:

- transit Jupiter would be trine progressed Midheaven (a key indication for success) with 
- the progressed Moon on natal MC, 
- Moon-MC quindecile transit Uranus for the emotional excitement because of an unbalancing surprise.

Let me give it a try for the exact (or almost exact) aspects for that day, without time of birth…

- Transit Neptune inconjunct progressed Sun
- Transit Saturn square Saturn and inconjunct Uranus
- Transit Jupiter conjunct progressed Venus

Doesn’t sound like a victory at all… except for the Venus-Jupiter joy (and he married in 2015). It takes a time of birth to see if the Moon, MC and Ascendant mirror yesterday's election.

On the day of the next General Election in 2020, May 7… does his chart show a winner?
Jupiter will be quindecile the progressed Sun (strong focus or obsession with success) before May 7, while transit Pholus inconjunct the Sun seems to indicate that he shot his own foot (a turning point in life with a loss involved – maybe just lost life style). That doesn’t offer much insight, does it?

But Transit Jupiter would be square Ascendant, inconjunct natal descendant, however, if he was born at 11 pm. Maybe because he didn’t win, maybe because that is when the progressed Sun conjunct natal Pluto makes him face problems. His life style will change due to politics and stress

Perhaps it helps you to know that while the natal Moon is in bounds (20th degree) his Progressed Moon is Out of Bounds and on top level in 2020, but about to decline and going down in May. His best years are coming, still. But they will be over in/after 2020.

Will David Cameron be his opponent then? Let’s see about David Cameron’s positions on May 7, 2020.
-       Pluto opposition progressed Moon and
-       Pluto semi square progressed Sun,
-       Transit Saturn trine Ascendant and
-       Progressed Moon trine Saturn
-       Transit Saturn inconjunct Midheaven
-       His OOB Progressed Moon went ‘down’ in 2019

Predicting is difficult, especially when it is about the futureJ. But Saturn inconjunct MC is pretty bad in election time. However, times are changing all the time. Maybe in 2020 both mr. Corbyn and mr. Cameron have left the stages for other reasons.

*) Gemini is a double bodied sign and on the 7th house cusp this sign might signal more than 1 marriage. Uranus is a disruptive symbol that doesn't stand for continuity in the house of relationships. He married 3 times, and 2 times with someone not born in the UK.

Remember the post 'When one chart is up...' with the sub title 'How can you laugh, when you know I'm down'? It is here: :

Now my chart will be up, when my dog's chart will be down, exactly in the summer of 2016, when I consider to make a trip to Eastern Europe. As it will be hot there and there will be many excursions to palaces and city centers, it will be better for the dog and us to leave the dog behind, in a pension with only Frenchies, in the hands of a nice lady. I could think of it as a sort of a vacation for the dog, but I know that while my chart has Jupiter-P Venus during the trip, hers has transit Saturn square Sun and Progressed Sun. And that is an uneasy thought. Especially since the latest example of Saturn with Sun and Progressed Sun was that of a well known singer in my country who ended in hospital on a Greek island, after being hit by a car, while walking on the street. So, maybe that explains my concern.

Usually there is some correspondence between charts of partners and if not, it is a sign of not being in line, at least. Imagine that they don't tell me how sad my dog is (just to keep me happy) and that I'd never know if I hadn't studied astrology... Or am I 'tripping' the bad way?

What would you do? The transits remain the same if I go or if I don't. Perhaps I'd better not? It is just a silly dilemma in turbulent times, I know...

PS the dog was born September 2, 2014 (time unknown)

Syria, Merkel, Germany and astrology

Battle of the Sea Gods by Mantegna, thanks to Wiki Commons

No way to look away and not consider the charts involved in the tragedy of refugees in Europe today...What is in the charts? You'll see Neptune in the charts of Germany and Merkel, while Uranus and Pluto hit the chart of January 1, 1925 (Syria). And coincidence, or not: Neptune is the planet of 'no borders, no limits' and Uranus-Pluto means intense tension and dramatic change.

The Syrian Federation became the State of Syria in 1 January 1925, says Wikipedia. Have a look at the chart of that moment:

Sun, Progressed Sun, Ascendant, Progressed Midheaven and MC all have a position between the 10th and 16th degree of the Capital Signs. Those are exactly the degrees that were and will be hit by Uranus and Pluto. These two planets were 90 degrees apart (square) since 2011 and symbolized the unrest, extreme tension and dramatic change in the world right now. Also, the Progressed Sun of Syria's chart will be inconjunct Saturn within a year from now. This is a signal of coming decline. Right now there is migration from Syria to Europe. The people wants to move to Germany, where they expect to get a better life than in any of the countries that they walked or travelled through on the way to the country of Mrs Merkel, who recently sort of invited the refugees but she forgot to bring them 'home'. Progressed Ascendant near Mercury (planet of transportation) perhaps illustrates the situation. 

Charts of people who depend upon the State or the leader of the nation have to be considered in the light of the charts of the nation or the leader of the nation. The bad and hard aspects in that chart will mirror nasty situation and conditions, more than they do in times of peace and harmony. There is more... 
Transit Pluto opposition the Progressed Moon of the chart above reflects intense emotions and the people in problems, while transit Saturn inconjunct progressed Mercury seems completely in line with the difficult voyage with so many lost lives and what people left behind when they said goodbye to there home land.

Meanwhile, the area is at war, people die and suffer, and there is no help on the way. That is how migration started in 376, too, also with Neptune in early Pisces (see my site Astromarkt:

Considering the chart above, it doesn't look like there will be a solution for Syria, not soon enough to stop the migration. Now how about Germany?

The chart of Germany (United Germany, October 3, 1990, Berlin, zero hours) has transit Neptune in Pisces inconjunct the natal Sun in Libra. That is exactly the kind of aspect that makes it hard to deal with all the Neptunic things such as refugees, the sea, idealism, beliefs and the media. This aspect demands clarity, openness and open eyes when there is little balance and too much confusion. It is har to do. The chart of the leader of the nation is in line with that. 

As Angela Merkel's Progressed Sun is in the 24th of Virgo, quindecile (165d) transit Neptune, there will be a strong focus (if not obsession) with the issue of Sun-Neptune that is in the nation's chart as well. Here is her chart:

In her natal chart Neptune is on the MC and square the Sun (just like in the chart of Obama) to show you that certain ideals, ideologies and beliefs will be of utmost importance in her life and connected to her career. Now Mrs Merkel's name sounds all over the Budapest' railway station. Being an idol that way, may not have been her purpose.

It is a complex situation and apparently, the political leaders can't deal with it. So the people who lost their homes and didn't see any future, made the choice to start walking to an unknown but peaceful future and to demand access to the nation that seems to have the best economic and cultural cards.

Uranus-Pluto and Neptune in Pisces, symbols of revolution and change, did there job. All that astrologers can do, is signal the aspects and point at the indications of dramatic change. There is no astrological solution, but there is some hope.

The Uranus-Pluto square is fading away slowly, and Neptune in Pisces is moving on. Someday, all charts have changed and I hope it will be in a good way.  There are hard aspects always, but these two  astrological indications were present in revolutionary times of religious wars and migration in the past and are now losing there importance. But, like I said on Astromarkt:
Eventually, any hard aspect between Uranus and Pluto issues the value and problem of change, and the price to pay for it.
Some of us had to pay a lot...
