The UK has tr Jupiter moving through the 1st house until November 2017 and several Jupiter midpoints being triggered throughout the year so the mood will be surprisingly upbeat. Tr Uranus is opposition the Jupiter/MC now and through January, being joined by tr Pluto trine Jupiter/Pluto in Jan, mid July to early Sept, late Oct to early Dec 2017 which should engender a ‘we can do it’ spirit.
The major transit will be tr Pluto opposition the 10th house Cancer Moon from March 2017, on and off till late 2018. The Moon in mundane charts means the masses of the population, so in general refers to public opinion. There are associations also obviously with women and, in the UK, to parliamentary democracy (rule by the people) since the Moon is in the 10th. The 10th refers to the ruling classes in government and the Royal Family.
Tr Pluto opposition the Moon will give rise to intense feelings, emotional outbursts, fanatical zeal, impulsive and irrational behaviour, with the darker emotions on display – jealousy, obsessions, suspicion, paranoia. Since tr Pluto is moving through the 4th there will be mutinous sentiments forcefully expressed, since there is a grindingly slow pulling-away from the past going on, which will meet with strong resistance from some. Tr Pluto in hard aspect to the Moon can bring loss through death or at least mourning for the passing of an old way of life.
The February Pisces Eclipse will be conjunct the UK Pluto and Solar Arc Jupiter which may not have a dramatic effect. The August Eclipse in late Leo will be conjunct the UK Saturn in Leo in the 11th which rules the legislature, House of Commons and hopes for the future. Saturn + an Eclipse generally lands heavier responsibilities always with the resonance of paying the price for decisions. Not quite ‘you broke it, you own it’ but along those lines. It’s face reality time and get on with it.
The other significant influence will be Solar Arc MC square the 8th house Mars, following on from the Solar Arc Sun square that Mars over the Brexit vote in 2016. It’ll be exact in six months time, though may trigger early, perhaps with a financial shock, or a disaster. The 8th house Mars can be high-risk or bring murk up from the bottom of the barrel (the child abuse inquiry etc).
In about two and a half to three years’ time there are a few interesting influences to contemplate. One is the Solar Arc Pluto conjunct the Ascendant in 2019 which will give rise to the impulse to be in control, perhaps as the EU divorce is finalised. With both the Solar Arc Uranus and tr Uranus in Taurus in 2018/19 moving into the 8th for the years thereafter, which will be erratic as far as business finances are concerned, though not necessarily disastrous. Just up and down and less predictable than before.
In 2019 the Secondary Progressed/Solar Arc Sun will conjunct the Progressed Jupiter which should give rise to a surge of confidence and enthusiasm.
