Malcolm Turnbull’s Astro Trends 21 Aug to 29 Oct 2018

August 21, 2018

Inner Chart – Malcolm Turnbull,

Outer Chart – Position of Stars on 21 August, 2018

Astrologers need the birth time of a person to make accurate readings. I do not know Malcolm Turnbull’s time of birth so I just use 12.00 PM. This means that my readings do not take into account the Houses – the 12 segments you see in the above chart. I just look at the aspects which planets make with each other.

I sent the following through Twitter on 17 August. Today, Tuesday 21 August was the first Leadership spill. Turnbull was challenged by Peter Dutton.

“Uranus square Mars: 26/09/2018 3:22 AM, Exact

This transit has just started to influence Turnbull. By mid to end September it will be in full effect.

This transit only occurs twice in every 84 years. Turnbull feels oppressed and that he must break free no matter what the cost. He may act rashly or impulsively. If he does, he may have some shit fights with the other more conservative LNP pollies.

The real challenge of this transit is for Turnbull to gain more confidence in his policy stance against the conservative forces.

It is necessary that he asserts himself now, and to do so without him becoming aggressive. This transit may make Turnbull open his mouth in anger, so if he wants to remain Leader he better be careful with what he says and HOW he says it. This transit will bring many upsetting surprises to deal with.

Turnbull has to assert himself, he just has to be careful to do so with discretion now. Otherwise, the Abbott / Dutton followers may decide to “knock the chip off his shoulder,” and he will have a full-scale war on his hands.”

Notice that the culmination of this transit is 26 September, 2018. What we are witnessing now is the beginnings of this influence.

Looking at the other planetary aspects we find that Turnbull’s position doesn’t improve. In fact we find that October is going to have even more impact on Turnbull’s leadership.

On 12 October we have Mars squaring Turnbull’s Saturn. This is when the planets make an exact 90 degree angle to each other. So, Mars started its squaring earlier following on from the exact 90 degree square of Uranus on his Mars.

Mars square Saturn: 12/10/2018 5:49 AM, Exact

 Turnbull will feel incredible frustration and anger which may lead to the desire to smash something. He won’t but his anger will be palpable.

Mars square Mercury: 16/10/2018 2:14 AM, Exact

 Turnbull may start using his acid barrister way of speaking as a weapon if the frustration escalates rather than breaking something. We may witness this in the media.

Jupiter square Pluto: 23/10/2018 1:57 PM, Exact

   If another spill hasn’t happened yet, then it will by now. There could be LNP members lining up to throw mud at Turnbull and willing to expose all sorts of crap about his leadership style and other secrets just to destroy his leadership.

People will be expecting Turnbull to make a stand about his real beliefs and convictions. So, he will be forced to do so. He has to try not to come across as arrogant and express a “holier than thou” attitude when it comes to climate change.

Jupiter trine Uranus: 29/10/2018 1:34 AM, Exact

 There is now some respite from all these troubles and heavy transits.

This may signify the peace and the opportunities Turnbull will have when he leaves politics.

 


Turnbull’s April 9 to 18 May, 2018 from an Astrological Perspective.

April 8, 2018

There’s a lot of pressure on Turnbull right now from an Astrological perspective. This will be particularly so from 28 April to about 28 May, 2018. This post will cover what the transits reveal until 18 May. Around that time I will post some info on the his transits until end of June, 2018.

This is the chart I’m working from:

Turnbull transits with labelsJPG

Last year in August I wrote the following about Turnbull’s transits:

Turnbull Uranus Square Uranus

Well, guess what – it’s square again. For those not familiar with astro terms square means  that a planet is in a 90 degrees angle to another planet. In this case the position of Uranus passes over the position of Turnbull’s Uranus at the time of his birth in a 90 degree angle.  The same feelings that were elicited or were present last August are here again now. This forms like a backdrop in his mind and heart to the other planetary formations appearing now.

1) Uranus Square (90 degrees) Jupiter culminates on 28 April.

We are witnessing this transit right now as Uranus approaches the 90 degree (square) angle to his Jupiter. This occurs twice in a person’s life in each 84 year cycle of Uranus. Uranus is very unpredictable & it may show a rebellious streak in Turnbull where he may make a statement against the push by the so called “Monash” group for coal. Why? Just to stick it to them because that’s what square Uranus influence can do. There’s also signs of impatience with the conservative “establishment” in LNP which may prompt him to jump to hasty conclusions & through a lack of “common sense” he may demand the right to follow his own beliefs.

2) Mars Square (90 degrees) Neptune culminates on 7 May.

He may have feelings of malice & be discouraged. He may even want to take evasive action during this phase. His vitality is low.

3) Mars Opposite (180 degrees) Uranus culminates on 10 May.

The urge to break free is irresistible now. He may show some weird behaviour. Weird in that it is not normal behaviour for him. The kind of behaviour that was mentioned in last years August reading excerpted above.

4) Mars Opposite (180 degrees) Jupiter: culminates 14 May

He may display a certain foolish overconfidence or boorish behaviour which is out of perceived character that could undo some of his good works.

5) Mars square (90 degrees) Sun: culminates 16 May

Turnbull is alert to any challenge, and ready to fight. he should avoid irritations and anger because they could undo him now.

6) Uranus Opposite (180 degrees) Sun: Culminates 18 May

If any sudden changes happen they will happen under this transit, which occurs only once in each 84-year cycle of Uranus. Whether or not they will be positive largely depends on Turnbull’s response to the need for these changes. It won’t matter if he resists or not the changes will take place anyway. However, if Turnbull resists he will lose any control of what may eventuate. The most constructive use of this transit is to go with the flow and to co-operate with the changes that are occurring around him. It could be better for his inner world – his conscience – if it looks like he will be knocked off as leader to just accept it. Already there is that siren call of just moving on mentioned in August’s reading and playing in the background of his mind now.

Under this transit relationships and friendships end as do positions one holds – like the Prime Ministership.


Review of Aug 3 Reading Turnbull’s Hot August Blues

December 13, 2017

I am learning quite a few lessons in playing with Political Astrology. One thing I’ve learnt is not to be stuck on particular issues and events because these change quickly. Rather than looking at the external events of the moment I have to look at the emotional “ambience” of the politician over a period of time.

 

When we look at our weather apps we find probabilities for rain and general descriptions of overall weather for day and week.  It gets harder to forecast weather over a week in the future.

So, instead of giving specific particular events highlighted by the passing planetary angles to the person’s chart (Transits) maybe it would be better to give probabilities of metaphoric “rainy” and “sunny” days/weeks/period.

It just happens that the last post on Turnbull’s August days had indications which showed a very “rainy” period ahead. In fact the transits showed a hurricane rather than just a storm. And events proved that right. Things have been very heavy for Turnbull especially with the dual citizenship crap.

So, from now on – no more SPECIFIC events but rather a general vibe of where things are heading – just like a long term weather forecast 🙂

 


Malcolm Turnbull’s Hot August Blues

August 3, 2017

Just a few notes on the next few weeks of this month about Prime Minister Turnbull’s emotional weather. This forecast is based on a few important planetary aspects which the planets of this month are making with Turnbull’s natal chart.

For those new to astrology – these angles of the planets’ movements against the blueprint of a person’s birth are called transits.

There are 4 major transits occurring for Turnbull in August.

One – Uranus Squaring (90 degrees) Uranus of his birth chart started in 24 May, 2017 and will last until 16 October 2017.

It was in an exact square (90 degrees) on 17 June, 2017 and will be again on 20 September, 2017. 

This transit happens around the age 20 – 21 and again in the mid 60’s. When it occurs there’s a desire for freedom and an urge to break away from authority. Hence its connection with young adulthood and the age of retirement. When you are in your twenties it manifests as rebellious energy and seeking new worlds, new experiences.

When it happens in the mid 60’s it may manifest itself as a need to break free of responsibilities and to exhale a sigh of freedom. There’s a feeling that you have done enough and have given a huge amount of time and energy to everybody and everything except yourself. Now it’s time to be yourself and think about starting again on a new venture. It feels like the ideal time to make the move.

In Turnbull’s life it may manifest as time to express his true beliefs and give a big middle finger to the conservative forces in the Liberal National Party. We all know what he thinks about same sex marriage and the republic.  This transit may form the background psychological muzac that comforts him – the siren call of a new life out of politics. He can do what he likes – he’s rich enough.

So, I wouldn’t be surprised if he just walks off the job – does a NSW Premier Baird act – spend more time with the family – which is really – get away from this hell and spend some time doing what he wants rather than what he feels is his duty.

If he does walk it may happen around 20 September.

The feeling to leave will be particularly fed by the other three transits occurring in August.

Let’s look at the first coming up now.

Mars square Saturn:  Sunday 6 August, 2017 

TUrnbull Transits Mars sq Saturn 6 Aug 2017 copy

This transit was in an exact 90 degree angle – square on Sunday 6 August, 2017 at 11.39AM. As with all transits the planets are moving and as they get closer to the birth chart planet they are waxing in their influence and as they leave they wane in their influence. So, this transit was starting its influence about a week or so before.

We saw this with Abbott’s team input and the same sex marriage plebiscite issue.

Mars squaring Turnbull’s Saturn shows frustrated anger and the fact that conservatives are trying to stop a vote on SSM may lead Turnbull to want to smash something.

If he loses his patience on Monday, 7 August in the special Party meeting he may make a pivotal mistake for his political career. However, as stated earlier with the Uranus aspect playing in the background it shouldn’t be a biggie for his inner world.

Mars square Mercury: Wednesday 9 August 2017 

Mercury in this context is communication and seeing it’s in the political arena we may see Turnbull say something which can be construed as a weapon if he is annoyed. It looks like he will be after that special Party meeting. In the above chart Mercury is right next to Saturn.

Mars conjunct Pluto: Thursday 31 August 2017 

TUrnbull Transits Mars conj Pluto 31 Aug 2017 titles

After the special Party meeting on 7 August Turnbull has been annoyed and we may see around this day, Thursday 31 August a ruthless power struggle. This could be expressed in ego trips – between Tony Abbott and Turnbull.

After all this we may see Malcolm Turnbull either walk away or be toppled around Wednesday 20 September.

Please remember the dates mentioned above are approximate and that this reading is an emotional weather forecast of our Prime Minister. Not all weather forecasts are correct but that doesn’t mean it isn’t a good idea to bring along an umbrella just in case.

Emotional Weather Forecasting – Political Astrology

June 10, 2017

I’ve decided from now on when I do astrological analysis and forecasting about politics I will only forecast the “emotional weather”.

When I did the Australian Election in 2016 I forecast an ALP Shorten win. In the review of the astrological reading I wrote that the forecast could be considered correct because the reading was really a “Joy Meter” ie which of the candidates would feel joy at the final result. Looked at this way the astrological reading was spot on because Turnbull was miserable and Shorten was joyful at the result. However, given the way the voting system worked with preferences etc Turnbull’s LNP won.

So, my prediction was wrong. If I predicted who would be joyous, my prediction would have been correct.

The method I used with the Australian Election was based on the transits (planets passing over the birth chart) on the day of the election. Doing the Election forecast this way meant that I had two horoscopes to look at – Malcolm Turnbull’s and Bill Shorten’s.  These links give the transits and their readings leading up to 2 July, 2016 election.

When I did the UK Election in 2017 horoscope I thought I’d experiment and do a national UK – Britain chart with the transiting Election date planets.

In this case there was no comparison “Joy Meter” of the candidates because I didn’t do Therese May’s or Jeremy Corbyn’s horoscopes. I just did the national chart. On Dec. 25, 1066 William the Conqueror was crowned King of England and this is the birth date of Britain I used. Click here for an interesting reading of this chart.

And this is the tweet I sent before the start of the Election 2017.

I said the chart showed a Labour win. I should have said the chart showed a disruptive, unexpected result – a Labour win or a Hung Parliament.

Here’s an explanation why:

The chart showed transiting Pluto moving through the 10th House making a conjunction with Natal Mercury  and Uranus making a soft conjunction with Britain’s Ascendant. Many of you reading this would read those words and say in a polite way – “WTF?”

I’ll try to explain.

Transiting Pluto

Tranist Pluto Britain Chart

Pluto takes about 247 years to orbit the Sun and spends about 20.6 years in each House. Transits from Pluto bring intense power struggles and transformation of an epic nature. They are considered very challenging with the promise of rebirth or renewal by going through a kind of death.

The 10th House – Corresponds to the president or prime minister, the chief executive, the government and the person representing the government as its head. This house rules the leadership and it reflects upon the nation’s status among other nations, its honour and recognition abroad, the nation’s influence in the world and world opinion of it. It rules the party in power.

Pluto is also conjunct Mercury.

Mercury signifies all forms of communication; newspapers, magazines, mail, speech, websites, blogs, all social media. Mercury governs intellectual trends and media events.

So putting the three together we have an incredibly intense transformation of the Government, a death and a rebirth of leadership. This same intense transformation is occurring in the media and communications in all its forms. This includes the influence of mainstream media. This transit shows that the Murdoch Press influence is dying in its influence and something else is taking its place – Social Media. The same transformation is happening with the peoples’ desire for a change in policy direction. Away from neoliberalism bull shit greed head policies to more socially inclusive policies.

Since Pluto stays in a House for just over 20 years and it is only half way through the house we can see that this transformation is only half way there. Indeed, Pluto will be conjunct the Sun in a few years which shows that there will be a complete change in Government and its policy direction. Perhaps this will be a throwing away of the old Thatcher neoliberalism policy stance and an embrace of a more human, inclusive democratic socialist policy stance. Yes, a Labour Government in full power.

If there is another election in 4 years time, 2021 the chart shows this is a real possibility.

 

Transiting Uranus

Tranist Uranus Britain Chart

Uranus takes about 84 years to orbit the Sun and spends about 7 years in each House. Transits from Uranus bring extreme disruption and changes to the houses and the planets it touches.

1st House – Corresponds to the country and its people, the masses, the outlook of the nation, its attitude as a unit, the strength and vitality of the country as a whole, national traits and habits. This house represents those being governed, the nation or group as a whole. The sign on the cusp and planets within represent outlook, image and characteristics. The First House concerns include domestic and interior affairs, general conditions, the health and well-being of the tax paying citizens, opinions, public consciousness and psychology of the masses.

Having Uranus in the first House signifies a disruption in the peoples’ attitude, consciousness and stance towards the current Government.

Both the 1st House and 10th House are Angular Houses and in astrology the four Angular Houses (1st, 7th, 10th and 4th) are considered to be the most sensitive points of a chart.

To have Pluto in the 10th House and Uranus in the 1st House means a big change was afoot.

For the above reasons I made my forecast that there will be a change of Government and thus a Labour win. However, currently it is a hung parliament and Conservatives may make Government with Northern Ireland DUP. This is why I said at the start I should have said the Election result will disrupt the status quo not necessarily a Labour win.


A Night in the Heart of Australia

April 6, 2017

This is an excerpt from a larger article “A Ganma Odyssey” in this blog https://dodona777.wordpress.com/2016/01/18/a-ganma-odyssey-2/

I will post other stories about my travels across Australia so look at this excerpt as if it’s a prologue of sorts.

===========================================================================

It’s been 25 years since I last visited Central Australia. Back then, the Sturt Highway was a two way dirt road all the way from Darwin to near Port Augusta. In 1972, words like revolution, liberation, justice, equality, freedom and peace, rolled off my tongue with a tender passion. Feeling the emptiness in the institutions, the knowledge factories and the general lack of soul in the world I hit the road. Back then I was searching for something. Nowadays, I’m still searching and it seems that the ” R ” word is the only one that doesn’t roll off my tongue so easily. Perhaps it should.
Twenty five years ago I found myself, with little more than nothing, in the heart of Australia. All I had was my canvas pack with a few clothes, a couple of books and some water in a bottle. I had no money. The previous three nights I had slept under the stars along the highway and during the day I prayed for a lift. I was two hours south of Alice heading for Adelaide when I was dropped off at Erldunda, near the turn off to Uluru (Ayers Rock) and Kata Tjuta (The Olgas). Across the road a petrol bowser stood as if on guard outside the general shop. A bus arrived and parked a few metres away from where I was standing. I watched the tourists get off. I hadn’t eaten a thing for over three days and I knew that the people getting off the bus would have something to eat. I approached a woman in a white hat as she stepped off the bus. Looking her in the eyes I said, “Excuse me, have you any food?”.

She looked at me with some pity and reached her hand into a brown paper bag pulling out a small green tomato. As she handed me the fruit I sensed everyone looking at me, from the bus driver to the little girl with her face pressed against the bus window. The white hat woman released the tomato into my hand and a ripple of disgust crossed her eyes and brow. I was dirty, I was homeless, a Dharma Bum now just a bum. I accepted the food and turned away from my shame. I noticed someone standing ahead of me in the distance waving, beckoning me to come over.

I had nothing to lose but everything to gain, holding the unripe tomato in my hand, I walked towards the stranger. As I got closer I could see white hair and a white beard on the face of an old black man. He wore trousers that were a little too big for him and a coat that was a little too small. He smiled and placed his hand on his belly whispering, what sounded like, “Hunger…hunger..” He took me by the arm and showed me to his home by the highway. It was a lean to humpy with a corrugated iron mulga branch roof. Some old flour bags were scattered on the dirt floor to sit on. He shared with me some milk arrowroot biscuit pieces and a powdered milk drink in a tin cup. He let me stay the night. The shop with the petrol bowser had switched its lights off. During the night, nothing much was said between us – the silences, with the occasional bark of a lone dog, said it all.

In the centre of Australia I saw that the dispossessed ones were the generous ones. We non – indigenous ones take and take while these people, the original ones give and give. Twenty five years later, in 1997, our government wants to stop the original people from reestablishing their culture and reconnecting with their land. Extinguishing the recently acquired native title rights is the equivalent of stealing what little these people have and giving this little to the rich, whether pastoralists, miners or just greedy transnational corporations. Will we the non – indigenous ones ever learn? So, 25 years later I was returning with a hunger so subtle that you’d miss it if you weren’t seeking it. It’s a hunger for something which may transform the hole in my being to the whole.


A Walk Through Sydney Botanic Gardens

April 3, 2017

Last week I walked through Sydney Botanic Gardens and took these photos with my phone camera. The day was overcast and I found myself drawn to textures and shapes.
