Mopping up extras from the smash-up on the floor at Westminster.
Tom Watson, Deputy Leader of the Labour Opposition Party, 8 Jan 1967, gave the hard word to Jeremy Corbyn about not having the confidence of the parliamentary party, to zero effect. Watson with an exact 17 degree Capricorn Sun square Mars in Libra is facing another punishing eighteen months as tr Pluto is conjunct his Sun and square his Mars. High stress is not the word for it. But for all that he looks remarkably upbeat now until September with tr Uranus opposition his Sun/Jupiter; and has two further Jupiter midpoint uplifts in 2017. So not all bad. Plus a bounce in 2019 from Solar Arc Jupiter conjunct his Uranus.
His relationship chart with Corbyn always was explosive and unco-operative with a T Square onto a focal point Mars Uranus. There’s nothing much affecting the chart (without birth times) apart from a high-uncertainty tr Neptune square Saturn this year. Then there’s a separating tr Saturn conjunct composite Sun throughout 2017; with a definite jolt come 2018.
John McDonnell, Shadow Chancellor, even further left than Corbyn, who has been quietly laying foundations for an upward trajectory looks devastated in 2017/18 with tr Neptune opposition his Virgo Sun and tr Pluto square his afflicted Neptune. His relationship with Corbyn, will part company sharply at any time through the next eighteen months with tr Uranus square the composite Sun Venus.
On the Tory side, manoeuvring for a leadership election. Liam Fox, 22 September 1961, a Leaver, looks thoroughly jangled at the moment with tr Uranus opposition his Mars; and has a raft of undermining Saturn transits to midpoints, especially this October, followed in 2017 by Neptune ditto. He’ll have a few ups but not too many; and a major setback in late 2017 or thereabouts.
Stephen Crabb, 20 Jan 1973, highly thought of but unknown and a Remainer, will have his moment of glory but not yet. 2019/20 look his high points with tr Pluto conjunct his Jupiter. But before then it all looks swampy and disappointing with tr Neptune square his Mars opposition Saturn in 2017/18.
Ruth Davidson, 10 Nov 1978 3.15pm Edinburgh, the Scottish Tory leader who made a good impression on television arguing for Remain, will get more power and responsibility but not perhaps until 2018/19 and thereafter as tr Saturn crosses her midheaven. She could have health issues for a year or so or be disappointed about her efforts.
PS With the Tory Leadership election now announced for September 1st/2nd – right on top of a nasty Eclipse – it would seem to favour Boris who has tr Pluto trine Jupiter then.
