We need to wake up and change everything. Mars is always strong in tropical Scorpio. Mars is also conjunct the stars in the Scales of the constellation of Libra. The Scales of Libra are mythically connected to the goddess Astraea, the last of the gods to stay on Earth. As mankind became more corrupt, she ascended to the heavens and became the constellation Virgo; the scales of justice that she carried became the constellation Libra.
Both stars of the scales are connected to social justice and reform, adding layers of meaning to the already powerful Mars in Scorpio. Vivian E. Right here, right now is where we draw the line. The world is waking up.
And change is coming, whether you like it or not. This star is connected to the musician Orpheus who grieved for his lost wife, Eurydice. People are dying. Entire ecosystems are collapsing. We are in the beginning of a mass extinction. Brexit, Brexit, Brexit: This is all we hear about in the U. While the social and societal institutions that once made this country a good place to live fall to ruin through neglect and underfunding all around us, nobody wants to talk about anything other than Brexit.
It seems odd to say, but while predicting the future is difficult, predicting the past is not always easy either. As astrologers, we are concerned with understanding patterns, and allowing not so much the fabric but the weave of the fabric we are contemplating to tell its story; this can be tricky to understand, even when events are long past.
And when we consider broad entities, such as nations, this is exacerbated by the necessity to look at so-called mundane astrology, which has somewhat different significations than the personal stars we are familiar with. Nonetheless, the astrology of Brexit has followed a pattern so concise and self-evident that even non-astrologers might grasp it completely.
This address, which came to be known as the Bloomberg Speech, took place in central London on January 23, at a. This places Neptune within a one-minute conjunction with the Ascendant. Also ominous of future woes and calamity is the exact conjunction of Neptune with asteroid Melpomene, muse of tragedy.
Without any doubt, the combination of these deceiving, quixotic visions of a better future outside of Europe have unleashed a legacy of woe upon the very fabric of Britain, no matter the eventual outcome. At a more esoteric level, the muses are the daughters of memory. This is quite literally true as they are the offspring of Mnemosyne goddess of remembrance and her consort, Zeus. Wherever any of the muses is configured in the astrology there is a strong connection to memories, which are an individual retrospection.
The recollections of a personal past determine the expectations of how the future might unfold, and approaches to that future are selected or rejected accordingly. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder precisely because the formative experiences of an individual that constitute their expectations are the remembered preferences and aversions of a subjective past. The muses model idealism based on accepted past norms.
The muses represent then, an attempt to personify the process of understanding what perfection looks like. As a result, one can perhaps appreciate the potential of their power in a mundane chart. For a great many people, especially those who are older, whose past travels further back and has thereby been more radically supplanted by change, the difference between what the perfect society is and the society they find themselves in is fundamentally more jarring.
George Orwell was another who attempted to frame this English utopia which seems to have become a part of the fabric of the Brexit dream. The Brexit chart is fascinating, then, because of its appealing allusion to a better and more comforting past. But let us now examine the broad strokes of the Brexit Bill, the actual piece of legislation that made the referendum possible in the first place. As stated, its name was spoken aloud on January 23rd for the first time.

The symmetry, despite its disenchanting consequence, is beautiful. Sun, which, let us not forget, is an event that has not happened within the scope of the U.
It was this series of legislations which really hardened attitudes against British rule and gave rise to the American War of Independence. After this disastrous American experiment, Britain never again dared to impose direct taxation of any of her colonies, and it really marked the beginning of the end for the British Empire. Who holds the power: King or Pope?
Within a decade, the battle was joined, and after the Protestant Reformation, the Church of Rome never again held so much authority. Under Pluto, the test of sovereignty is absolute and chooses right every time. If we take a long view of the prevailing dynamics of British rule at each of these transits, it is therefore possible to glean some of the key foundations of the mundane Pluto-to-Sun transit. Pluto has this effect, wherever he narrows his focus, of testing for existential validity. To fail the test leads to annihilation, and the old, indestructible crucible of Hades is once again readied for the formulation of new and stronger alloys.

Jupiter is the planet of expansion, abundance, law, justice, and religion, while Saturn is the planet of constriction, discipline, limits, borders, and rules — especially for marriage, families, and societies.
Saturn is more concerned with tradition, material security, and safety. In the planetary hierarchy, the teaching is that rules are needed in the midst of expansion and prosperity. In many ways, Jupiter represents the liberal philosophy of John Locke — , the British philosopher and physician who believed in the innate goodness and cooperative spirit in the human being and the human race.
His anti-authoritarian views are expressed in his Two Treatises [on civil government] , published in Thomas Hobbes — , on the other hand, believed that all people are not inherently good. His more conservative and materialistic philosophy represents Saturn.
Hobbes was a British philosopher and ardent monarchist, whose major work Leviathan published in concerned the structure of society and legitimate government. He was less trusting in the human being to look out for others, and more willing to let a government have absolute authority over its subjects and its institutions. While both men agreed that social contracts exist to preserve the common good and to protect private rights, they disagreed on how the social contract should be achieved, with Locke trusting more in the ability of people in a political community to reach consent among themselves.
The planetary equivalents of Left Liberal and Right Conservative views on political matters can help us to better understand the critical issues of our times.

Their sentencing hearings have been delayed in the past, as they continue to cooperate with ongoing investigations.
