“If there is dust on our lens, we see dark spots in the heavens.” Carlos Suares
Like many of you I am dismayed, disappointed and apprehensive about what this reactionary Abbott government is doing to Australia. As many of you have noticed, Abbott is showing characteristics of a “sociopath” . His lying is not just a one off, it’s constant and he lies about his lying.
I was curious to see what the Stars have to say about this man and the period he and we are passing through.
If you just want a summary of my findings here it is – Tony Abbott’s charts indicate he will not be Prime Minister earliest March 8, 2015 and latest by the end of May, 2015. The process of his down fall is now in play and unless he changes fundamentally his psychology, he will either lose the Leadership by a spill or there will be a Double Dissolution.
I’m assuming that most readers don’t have much knowledge of Astrology and how its symbolism works. I won’t try to explain its symbolic processes, you can do your own research because it’s far too big to cover in one little post. However, I will try to show a little of how my conclusions have come about because without it my analysis will not make sense.
I recommend you read the following posts in my blog to get an idea of where I’m coming from with all this Astrology stuff before you read this analysis. You may be surprised.
To assist you, check this table out. It shows the signs and their names so I don’t have to show each symbol every time I mention it. I am trying to interpret an astrological view point to those who are not literate in star language. For the purposes of this post all you have to do, if you are not familiar with astrological symbolism, is look at the charts and refer to the tables below to know what symbol and position they represent.
For ease, the Moon and Pluto are both called planets. Below the Table is Tony Abbott’s Transit Chart for December 8, 2014.
Above : Table of Signs
Above : This is Tony Abbott’s chart with the planets passing over on 8 December, 2014 outside the circle.
The first thing that strikes you is that Abbott is a Scorpio. This is important because he is the first Scorpio PM of Australia since Federation.
Some background info on Horoscopes, Transits and Angles
By looking at the position of planets passing over the birth chart, astrology reveals feelings engendered by the relationship between the planets and their position. The angles between them and their position in the chart speak. It is a language. It’s kind of geometrical / numerological in nature. Forget science, there’s no science to this – it is structured guessing using faint star signals from the symbols. It is always an approximation, a walk in the dark.
When one draws up an Astrological chart (horoscope) the birthdate and time is crucial. Of all the symbolic points of a horoscope the Angles pictured below as 1) 2) 3) 4) are the most important because they are derived from the exact time and place of a person’s birth. Abbott was born in London at 4 AM.
The Angles make the scaffolding of a person’s life. Point 4) is the Ascendant (called the First House) and shows what is rising on the eastern horizon, the Descendant Point 2) (called the Seventh House) what is setting on the western horizon. Point 1) the Midheaven (Tenth House), or MH shows the highest point the Sun reaches at noon and Point 3) the Immum Coeli (Fourth House) or IC, shows the lowest point the Sun reaches under the Earth around midnight.
The chart above shows Tony Abbott’s Horoscope in the centre and outside the circle are the planets’ positions at the time of reading – December 8, 2014. These are called the Transits. The blue circles show the important points of the chart.
The horoscope is a snapshot of where the stars and planets were at the moment of your birth. Astronomically it is objective. Astrology brings in qualities and values that have nothing to do with the external planets except the correlation of timing. As we know, the stars and planets move as the Earth moves. Nothing stands still.
As the planets move overhead they pass over us and our horoscope, touching the original symbolic points of the chart. These are called “transits”. The inner planets are Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter and Saturn, with the Moon orbiting the Earth. The outer planets are Uranus, Neptune and Pluto. The inner planets move quite fast compared to the outer planets so they touch the 4 Angles more often than the outer. Their touch is light and while they may shake the structure of astrological identity they do not change the structure. Saturn has the biggest impact of the inner planets and orbits the Sun in about 28 years. However, when one of the outer planets passes over the Angles your life changes. The “architecture” of your life changes.
Uranus takes 84 years to orbit the Sun. If we live to the age of 84 we will experience a Uranus transit over all the Angles – once every 21 years. Neptune (165 years) and Pluto (248 years) being far slower means their transits over the Angles are much rarer and so, much deeper and more far reaching. Dividing those orbital years by 4 we get Neptune passing over an Angle every 41.25 years, Pluto – 62 years. You won’t experience a transit of these two planets over more than 2 Angles in your lifetime.
The short interpretation for these transits:
Uranus brings freedom, enlightenment, autonomy and shocks “out of the blue”
Neptune brings confusion, idealism and a spiritual immersion,
Pluto brings crisis, psychological insight, transformation and intensity.
However, these influences are much nuanced and are naturally modified by the sign the transiting planet is in during the course of the transit. With Uranus and Neptune having just changed sign (to Aries and Pisces respectively), and the comparatively recent arrival of Pluto in Capricorn, the outer planet transits to the four angles will be subtly different to how they were a few years back.
Now let’s look at Tony Abbott’s Transits happening NOW.
We will see Pluto is not only shaking the Prime Minister’s House but rattling it big time. There’s the chance for him to transform and shape shift into a more empathic Leader and thus save his government from oblivion. Or, he can remain stuck in his habitual ways and watch the Liberals sink. This is the tension, the drama of what is happening to him now and over the next 6 months or so. All the signs are pointing to Abbott losing the Prime Ministership by May, 2015. There could be a leadership spill or a Double Dissolution Election called. Either way, Abbott won’t be PM.
Abbott has Pluto passing over the IC Angle (3) and it is opposite the Mid Heaven Angle (1)
Pluto oppose Midheaven: 24/11/2014
The G20 Conference was on 15 – 16 November, 2014. Australia and the world saw how myopic and small minded Tony Abbott is when he complained about the difficulties he had in getting his GP Tax through and deregulating university fees. One week later Pluto opposed his Mid Heaven exactly. So it was approaching his Mid Heaven for about 3 months and will still be felt intensely for another 3 months.
This once-in-a-lifetime transit is a time of profound psychological change, and his inner transformation will be reflected in his outer life. The changes that are taking place around him (in whatever form) can be good ones, and more painless if he doesn’t resist. However, it doesn’t look like he will go with the flow. His stubbornness and crusader mentality to impose change for ideological reasons is apparent to all. He is failing to turn inwards and seek inner guidance.
Changes are likely in both his domestic life and his political life. The need for change will not go away and he has to deal with them directly. Poor Margie will have to put up with a fake relationship as long as Tony is PM because it is not a good look for a Catholic PM to leave his wife. There are major upheavals occurring right now and there is damage but he has to keep up appearances.
Abbott knows he has to restructure his whole political vision but because of power struggles and intrigues he can’t or won’t. The recent reshuffle was just a band aid and he knows it. This transit shows there is going to be some drastic and irrevocable changes in his political environment. Indeed, it looks like Climate Change will impose itself as an important factor in his political troubles over the next few months.
Immum Coeli (IC) Point 3)
Pluto is moving through the 4th House pointing to Abbott losing the Leadership (among other Astrological indications) before an election because this House is known as the House of Endings.
Since Abbott has Capricorn in his IC he is familiar with his stamp of authority and control, with assumed heavy responsibilities for people dependent on him. This is so for both his family and now his broader “family” the Government. However, this familiarity can also lead to inflexibility in mindset and behavior. The arrival of Pluto here cracks open this veneer of control and loosens the rigidity either by his own inner transformation or by his losing the Leadership. It looks like he is too stuck in his ways to transform so he will be forced out. The positive outcome of this for Abbott is he will be free to grow emotionally and to seek new ways of being.
Uranus Opposite Ascendant and Conjunct Descendant
Wherever Uranus transits, that is where it is time for people to “update” attitudes and behaviors. Abbott was a powerful and negative Opposition Leader but now that he is Prime Minister he has to throw away that mindset and lead not oppose. He even carries his opposition attitude towards the Australian people. The Descendant is his relationships with others. He does not see the need to deliberately change his manner of being and thus act to change both his inner and outer behaviour. Uranus on his Descendant and opposite his Ascendant will maneuver him into situations that will blow up in his face forcing him to change. His rigidity is such that he cannot adapt so we will see him blow up his Prime Ministership.
With a Uranus transit it is to “expect the unexpected” – so anything can happen and in this context it has to do with his relationship with the Australian people and his immediate family. He has to be flexible and alive to change so as to adapt. It remains to be seen if he has the ability to do this.
Other Planets and a Time Line of Abbott’s Downfall.
As the planets move there are more angular relationships occurring between them. Since we know where the planets will be we can see the symbolism implicit in their position. So, looking towards the future we see many dark clouds ahead for Abbott’s hold on power.
Saturn square Pluto: 14/01/2015
Square means 90 degrees between planets. In this case we have 90 degrees between Saturn and Pluto. A Square, along with an Opposition is a “hard” angle and points to difficulties. Saturn is the ruling planet of Capricorn and for Abbott, the IC is Capricorn which is being contacted by Pluto. So, for him Saturn having a 90 degree nagular relationship with Pluto is very dire.
It shows a time of repeated obstacles and frustration. It shows his fellow politicians and co-workers in his Cabinet are purposefully preventing him from satisfying his ambitions. It shows that he has to change strategies drastically or he will face losing the Leadership. During this period between now and May he will be frustrated and feel like striking back at the forces against him but he can’t because he has to appear as if nothing is happening – that all is well.
He will be forced to change and “restructure” the political situation but it will be to no avail because his power is being torn down from within his own party. If he resists he may find himself in even more difficult circumstances with major conflicts that may include legal problems, accusations of corruption and dishonesty.
This aspect will return again on 17 May, 2015 where it will finally signify Abbott’s downfall.
Mars oppose Pluto: 15/01/2015
We will see ethics and morals fly out the window if his efforts to change things meet resistance. We will also see his sociopathic selfish disregard for others come into view.
Mars trine Neptune: 16/01/2015
Around this time we may see a compromise on the GP Tax.
Mars square Saturn: 29/01/2015
Abbott will have frustrated anger and his colleagues blocking actions will lead him to the desire to smash something. He probably won’t but he will lack patience and attention to detail.
Mars is in the 7th: 4/03/2015
The earlier issues with having Uranus on the Descendant and opposite the Ascendant now become magnified because Mars is in the area. Whatever partnerships Abbott has may suffer from ego conflicts and his adversaries will be applying more challenging pressure on him with momentary confrontations.
Mars square Midheaven: 8/03/2015
Because Mars is on the Descendant it means that it is square (90 degrees) to the Mid Heaven. The aggressive energy within Abbott can get him into conflict with others, especially those in his Cabinet. Problems may crop up in the domestic area as well.
Mars oppose Neptune: 4/04/2015
This phase may be overwhelming if a situation is stressful and demanding. His energy and confidence are low.
Mars is in the 8th: 6/04/2015
Mars is in the 8th house now, where it may cause ego conflicts concerning the Budget. This may bring the beginning of the end of Abbott’s fall.
Mars oppose Sun: 16/04/2015
Abbott’s sense of self and his need to survive politically are tested. Angry confrontations are possible. Buried resentment could surface suddenly.
Mars square Uranus: 16/04/2015
This is potentially an accident phase when restrictions promote impulsive actions. Abbott should expect the unexpected.
Mars oppose Mercury: 26/04/2015
Abbott’s ideas and plans may be challenged, causing harsh words and irritation.
Uranus oppose Jupiter: 13/05/2015
This transit occurs only once in each 84-year cycle of Uranus and is a time to proceed with caution. Abbott will likely be presented with many challenges now; he won’t have to seek them out. Sudden changes will occur which will require his immediate action.
Sudden gains or losses are possible at this time.
He should resist the temptation to be overly optimistic. The promises he makes may not be as easy to keep as he thinks. He may encounter conflicts regarding travel allowances, lawsuits and overall taxes.
There is also the possibility that things will be set in motion to oust Abbott from the leadership.
Mars square Pluto: 15/05/2015
Anger, frustration and any chances of winning are poor for Abbott with this transit and with all the other factors considered together.
Saturn square Pluto: 17/05/2015
This transit occurred in January 16, 2015 and now it is back again. Around this date the downfall will happen.
Mars oppose Saturn: 30/05/2015
Abbott will feel deprived and at a loss. By this time he would have well and trulty been ousted from the leadership of LNP and not be Prime Minister.
My astrological analysis of Abbott’s Transits show that if he cannot shift his attitude he won’t be Prime Minister by the end of May, 2015. I’ve looked at other astrological modes trying to gain an insight into what the future holds for our Prime Minister. One method called Solar Returns also paints a rather negative outlook for Abbott’s leadership. As does the Solar Arc. I thought it wouldn’t add much more if I included the extra data and interpretations.
Obviously I cannot be certain that my interpretation is correct or even if this whole exercise is not merely a fantasy that has kept me occupied for its duration. I am certain that it has been worth while doing it just to see what happens. It will be interesting to see what pans out over the next 6 months.
