Star Code Reading > Bill Shorten & 2 July, 2016 Election

March 9, 2016

Australia Votes on  2 July, 2016.

What are the planetary configurations for both Bill Shorten and Malcolm Turnbull for that day?

This post is about Bill Shorten. My conclusions here are also based on what I’ve read in Malcolm Turnbull’s chart. When I did the Abbott readings I was lucky in that I also had his Time of Birth. With both Shorten and Turnbull there is no record of their Times of Birth. This means that one of the most significant signs in reading Astrological Charts – the “Angles” is missing.  This reading thus has crucial data missing but one must work with what one has. Even without that data, it is possible to get a “weather” forecast in the fog of the present 🙂  Please see Australia’s Chart for more details regarding Time of Birth.

I will take the planets as passing over Canberra at 6 PM because that’s when most voting booths close in East Coast of Australia. We would be looking at about 85% of Australia’s population.

It’s important that we also look at what the planetary patterns are just leading up to that date.

This is not the place to argue the case for this ancient Art. If you are interested in how I perceive Astrology please click on these links on my blog.

Astrology is not science – it’s an Art. It uses astronomical data to alchemise meaning. It is a symbolic/mythic dowsing tool on dry number landscape. It sees quality in quantity informed by symbolism & mythology. In other words, it is a poetic interpretation of the Heavens above, a type of symbolic imagination in action.

Here are two articles by Geoffrey Cornelius that point to a way I look at Astrology Practice “Astrology as Divination” and “Is Astrology Divination and Does it Matter?”

I also “play” with the I Ching which informs the way I “play” with Astrology as divination.

I recommend if you want to know more about astrological symbolism as used here visit Wikipedia’s Horoscope .

By the Way >> if my prediction is wrong, blame it on my reading, not the stars.

This reading is based on just one technique of Astrological forecasting – reading transits. I will also look at other methods to see if there is a congruence of readings.

It’s interesting that the planets affecting Bill’s life and destiny before July 2 are the same planets on 2 July, the election date. The reason this is so is because Jupiter, Uranus and Pluto have long periods of orbit and thus their effects are  felt for a longer period of time.

This means that what we see now in March planet positions are the germinating seeds that will blossom on July 2, 2016.

The dates below are when the angles between the planets are EXACT. As the angle is approached the influence is stronger than after it is exact ie the period BEFORE the EXACT is stronger than AFTER the EXACT.

Please see Aspects and Angles, Orbs and Waxing/Waning for an explanation of how this works in Astrology in Australia’s Chart by clicking here.

7 March – 31 May, 2016 >> Pluto trine (120 degrees) Natal Pluto 

A great planetary pattern forming is Pluto making a positive angle (trine) with Bill’s natal Pluto. This shows there is much progress in his life and  he has the ability to be flexible and incorporate change smoothly and successfully towards his goal and aim – to defeat Turnbull.

Bill has the resources to make the needed changes and the power to adapt embracing new needs. His past behaviour that held him captive will be discarded, paving the way to success.

10 March – 7 July, 2016 >> Jupiter conjunct (0 degrees) Pluto

With Pluto and Bill’s natal Pluto pattern, another great transit that only occurs once every 12 years is also occurring. Jupiter over the top of Pluto is very significant in Bill’s chart. This shows the dominant issue confronting him is the use or abuse of power. It also shows a great push towards reaching his goals. He feels as if he can move mountains in order to achieve his aims. He’s in a very good place inwardly and feels more compelled than usual to strive for success and take down Turnbull. This feeling and the events that crystallise around him now are the fruits and culmination of long term efforts. These fruits are the rewards of the discipline shown in ALP since last election.

As with anything that has to do with Pluto power, it is crucial that Bill uses this burst in a positive manner and not to manipulate others in games of one-up-manship. This power blast can be overwhelming if not handled correctly. These Pluto effects are very Karmic in nature and thus Bill must be aware of what he is sowing because he will definitely reap it.

Bill will rise to  perceived power and will carry Labor over into a more confident space to take on Turnbull and the LNP over the next few months. This period of time is very positive for Labor to announce more policies that will differentiate itself from the Liberals.

This is a good time for Bill to direct his energies toward planning and policy development making announcements slowly and thoroughly. This will ensure whatever new policies Labor undertakes will be more likely to succeed.

Bill has a practical and reasonable attitude which can help ALP achieve its goals more easily. It would be a good idea for Bill and Labor to join forces with other groups like Greens and Independents for particular issues against Turnbull and the LNP.

Bill has remarkable endurance now and he can work long and hard to bring ALP ideas to fruition. He is not in the mood to give up and will be very thorough. Saturn brings a more disciplined ambience to his work. He will appear more conservative than at other times but the discipline that ensues from this transit will accomplish much. This will be achieved by the discipline ALP demonstrates under Bill’s leadership and not by mere luck.

During this time it is crucial the projects undertaken be done with great attention to detail and with patience. Mainstream  media will be hunting to try and find any hole or contradiction in Labor policy announcements.

April 17 – 18, 2016  >> Mercury  Trine (120 degrees) Pluto

There is greater depth to Bill’s statements. He will be asking very penetrating questions of others and will not be satisfied with superficial answers by LNP. This is an excellent time to start an investigation into a complex  issue. He may revisit some lost policy positions of old Labor.

April 17 – 18, 2016  >>  Sun Square (90 degrees) Jupiter

He is optimistic and possibly extravagant now, less cautious than usual, feeling that nothing can possibly go wrong.

He will also aim higher than usual  – maybe a policy position that will surprise because of its boldness. This planetary pattern also points to possibility of a very promising opportunity occurring.

April 18, 2016 – May 31, 2016 >>  Pluto trine (120 degrees) Pluto 

This pattern read earlier on March 7 & will build up strength until May 31 – emphasised again.

A great planetary pattern forming is Pluto making a positive angle (trine) with Bill’s natal Pluto. This shows there is much progress in his life and  he has the ability to be flexible and incorporate change smoothly and successfully towards his goal and aim – to defeat Turnbull.

Bill has the resources to make the needed changes and the power to adapt embracing new needs. His past behaviour that held him captive will be discarded, paving the way to success.

April 19, 2016 to April 22, 2016 >>  Mercury  Conjunction (0 degrees) Sun

Bill’s communication skills are excellent and he makes himself perfectly clear at this time. He is coming across in a very direct, articulate manner. His honesty and
willingness to communicate openly impresses people – even mainstream media! This is a good time for him to give a speech, present his ideas and broad ALP vision.

This planetary pattern is ideal for the Leader of the Opposition because it allows for a fruitful communication to the Australian people of complex ideas and policies in a forthright manner.

April 20, 2016  to April 21, 2016 >> Mercury  Trine (120 degrees) Uranus

Bill will experience sudden insights, make discoveries, come up with fresh solutions to old problems, and seek alternatives to the usual routine way of doing things.

His mental processes are speeded up and he can move more quickly now. Must try to make room for a lot of spontaneity and flexibility in his schedule at this time.

 

April 20, 2016 to April 23, 2016 >>  Mercury Conjunction (0 degrees) Mercury

Again this aspect of Mercury making a direct connection with his natal Mercury  heightens his ability to comprehend and articulate new concepts, his mental sharpness and clarity. It also gives the power to  verbalize and articulate  ideas very well at this time.

Bill’s intellectual curiosity is also high. This is an excellent time to make plans
and strategies to destroy LNP’s chances and win the election.

April 24, 2016 to May 4, 2016 >>  Mercury Opposite (180 degrees) Neptune

This pattern culminates on Anzac Day (April 25) and whilst the earlier patterns show great communication prowess and clarity in his mental processes, this pattern is  one of the least favourable times to make decisions as his communication with others is likely to be fraught with misunderstanding or even unconscious deception.

His thinking is rather fuzzy now and he is more gullible or swayed by feelings, images, and ideals rather than seeing situations and people as they are.

However, like a musical chord, the vibrations of this pattern may be subsumed within the broader tune being played out. Sometimes a little disharmony adds much needed tension to ensure an anticipated outcome.

It is interesting that both Bill and Turnbull have Neptune in a prominant place in their natal charts. Turnbull has Neptune conjunct (0 degrees) Sun, while Bill has Neptune opposite (180 degrees) his Sun.

April 27, 2016 >>  Mars Trine (120 degrees) Saturn

Rather than repeat what I wrote earlier with this pattern please see March 31, 2016 to May 3, 2016. 

It is repeated here because of the movement of Mars. It shows that the planetary inluence mentioned earlier is revved up again here at this time.

 

5 May, 2016 and returning 13 May, 2016 >> Jupiter square (90 degrees) Moon

Although this angle, square – 90 degrees is usually considered to be times of difficulty, with Jupiter the results are usually very favourable. Bill’s emotions will be emphasised during this transit, and he will seek to establish strong relationships with others. He will be particularly patient and sympathetic toward other peoples’ problems now, and will probably help others more freely at this time. He will be protective of his “comrades” and will feel a strong solidarity with his ALP colleagues.

Bill will feel strongly at this time the injustices of the LNP perspective and policies.We may witness a sense of moral outrage when he sees some person or a group of people being treated unfairly. He will have little tolerance for such injustices now and he will be prone to becoming very emotional about them. However, he must be careful not to become self-righteous and narrow minded. He has to not appear bitter towards the conservative right wing creeps who are perpetrating these injustices. The reason being, that Murdoch’s NewsCorpse will use this “bitterness” and anger against him.

2 June, 2016 >> Mars trine (120 degrees) Jupiter

There may be some positive news and rewards for past good works in the Union movement. The policy and announcements are progressing smoothly. All is good.

30 June, 2016 >> Pluto square (90 degrees) Mars

 This is another once-in-a lifetime transit that is intensely powerful. Like all Pluto transits, the greatest difficulty is that there are power games at play. You can’t beat an Election as an expression of Power. This transit is expressing the tension that is present in such an event and how it manifests in Bill’s life. There will be altercations, fights and general heavy vibes  testing his ego and others in his presence. There could also be a disruption beyond his control.

Bill’s drive to succeed is incredibly strong now and he is likely to gain the Prime Ministership. However, he must be careful that he does not step on the backs of others to reach his goals because these gains may not last long as Karma will turn them like a boomerang against him.

Luckily for Bill the tremendous urges to transform this transit brings are being directed to a worthy cause that will benefit our country – the ousting of the Conservative Liberal National Party and putting the Australian Labor Party in power again.

8 July, 2016 Jupiter conjunct (0 degrees) Pluto

This is about a week after the July 2 Election but we see that this transit is exact again. This shows that Bill will carry Labor  into power.

 Conclusion

This reading is based on just one technique of Astrological forecasting – reading transits. I will also look at other methods to see if there is a congruence of readings.

ALP has learnt its lessons from the Rudd – Gillard – Rudd period. It is solid, together and united in focus and purpose. Importantly it has a story, a narrative that is connected with an over arching theme – FAIRNESS. It is also positioning itself against the interests of the 1% and for the interests of the rest of us. Bill Shorten has kept the ALP united and has shown there is a difference between Labor and the conservative LNP.

Given the momentum and trajectory of energies displayed in Bill’s planetary patterns for an early election on 2 July, it looks like he will win.

 A Note on Timing Events

A principle that many people confuse is how synchronicity appears. Carl Jung coined this term to label experiences which may not be connected causally but are connected subjectively by being meaningful to the person.

With synchronicity the elements of experience which are connected subjectively show that correlation is not necessarily causation. So, just because skirt hems go up doesn’t mean that this causes stock prices to go up (Skirt Length Theory). This is just an interesting correlation.

 Celestial phenomena can be seen acting as signs rather than causes. Just as a clock on the wall is capable of telling you that it is 9:00 in the morning without actually being the cause or reason that it is 9:00,the planets may be similarly thought to be capable of giving signs of future events without necessarily being the reason that those events occur.

So with Astrology just because certain planetary patterns coincide with certain events does not mean that these planetary patterns cause the events!

Timing events in Astrology  seeks the time when certain planet orbits and angles between the planets happen. When certain angles eg conjunction (0 degrees between two planets), opposition (180 degrees) and squares (90 degrees) happen exactly then an event congruent with the planet may happen. This does NOT mean that this combination of planetary motion caused the event. It is a happy coincidence 🙂

The larger the orbits of the planets the longer the time which is covered in the reading. So, a Pluto / Jupiter angle can cover a very long period of time but a Moon / Mercury a very short time.

These readings have only looked at relatively long spans of time like months and weeks.  I may take a closer look later when we are sure about the election date with shorter time frames.

Star Code Reading > Abbott & Possible Easter Spill

January 17, 2016

Someone on Twitter  asked me what I thought about a current  Canberra rumour. Apparently,  Abbott will  attempt to knock over Turnbull around Easter, 2016. I had to  look at his chart again just to see if this was possible.  Here’s the Tweet that sparked it all:

Abbott April 2016 spill

Before I jump into it I’d like to say a few words about what all this astro stuff does for me in the political context. We all have opinions and feelings about news items, rumours, gossip and maybe real inside info.  I like to pass  these through a “numerological” filter because it gives structure to my feelings, guesses and ideas. It is no more than that – a filter which supplies me with a basis for guessing outcomes.  Please read my post on Guerilla Ontology for clarification.

My last post on Abbott predicted his downfall and so it happened.  Whilst the date was a little off, it was still better than the “expert” political commentators who get paid to surmise and synthesise insider political tidbits of info into a comprehensive vision of what may happen. The tidbits an astrologer has is the birthday, time and location of birth. That’s it!  Of course the interpretation depends on the astrologer’s skill.

Below is a combined chart of Abbott’s horoscope in the centre with the chart of 1 April, 2016 in Canberra.  I picked Canberra because that is where Australian Federal politics happen.  I chose 12.00AM because it’s all one big guess as to what time if anything will happen. However, given the motion of planets a few weeks, days or hours don’t matter that much.  I’m trying to see the “emotional weather” within Abbott’s being.

Abbott April 2016 transits

For most of you this chart means zilch but for others  familiar with astrology it says a lot.

Saturn conjunct Saturn: 17 January 2016 – the Great Saturn Return

The first thing to notice is the Great Saturn Return. It’s interesting that this rumor should be out and about on this date because it is the first exact conjunction (meaning same place) of Saturn over Abbott’s Saturn at time of his birth.

This transit indicates Saturn has made a complete revolution around a chart (and the Sun), bringing its stabilising and maturing influence to each part of one’s  life.  Life decisions are made  based on what we want rather than what others think we should do.  The increased responsibility and lessons Saturn brings are annoying  “growing pains” if taken the right way or catastrophic if not.  This happens every 29 – 30 years and is one of the most powerful  signs of either great positive change about to happen or great pain if you are not living in “good faith”.

This transit both begins and ends a new cycle in terms of career. Whatever steps anyone takes during this transit greatly affects their future. So, for Abbott his emotional weather will include the feeling of “do it now or die” that comes with the second Saturn Return (about 58 – 59 years of age). He may also feel he is making up lost time and therefore having to work hard and make every minute count to build the next step of his career.  Abbott has a huge ego and he will have his legacy in mind and what the history books will record about him.

He will also feel he doesn’t have to put up with unsatisfactory conditions and circumstances which do not fit his political vision and of his future legacy. He won’t be scared of leaving behind outdated people and connections from his life because he feels their passing will only make room for the new. Indeed, he will feel that cutting his ties from what is expected of him will facilitate his own growth. He feels how scary such an attitude is but the changes are needed more than ever.

Abbott is a warrior. He will feel in his guts and heart the only thing to do now is to take on Turnbull if he is true to his conscience. It may sound like crap to us but in his heart and mind he believes his conservatism that includes the monarchy – Queen and Country – Sir Philip is the right thing for Australia. As far he is concerned Turnbull is Labor Lite and a disgusting social progressive who will not only bring in a Republic but also legalise same sex marriage. Both of these are anathema to Abbott’s vision of Australia.

From just looking at Abbott’s Saturn Return I think he will take on Turnbull and if he doesn’t win he will create a new right wing party. This new Right Wing Down Under Tea Party headed by Tony Abbott may win Senate seats. Abbott’s intention is to ensure Conservative control of Upper House, so even if he is not PM he still has a major say in what happens to Australia politically.

Now let’s look at other important signs.

Saturn sextile Ascendant: 3 February 2016

The Ascendant is an important part of a chart. It is one of 4 Angles and anything that touches on the Angles has a strong influence. The Ascendant is where we show our face, it is the Mask, the Personality we present to the world.

Since it is Saturn which is making an impact on this Angle and given our previous statements about Abbott’s Saturn Return, this aspect shows Abbott will be clarifying his views of himself through others’ eyes. He will be seeking out other peoples’ opinions of himself as a person (primarily as Leader) and as a valuable contributor to the conservative cause.

With Saturn here it indicates he will be getting advice from older people. I wouldn’t be surprised that these will include Howard, Pell, Flint and the ghost of B A Santamaria.

Abbott will be taking his role in Australian society very seriously now. He will be conscious of patterns in his life and will become more disciplined in his approach rather than fall into habitual patterns of behaviour. He will feel that whatever he does during this period will affect his future prospects for years to come. In fact, he will feel it will affect his future image for centuries to come from his legacy as recorded in Australian History.

With this transit he will not be feeling happy and care free but rather there is a huge weight of Australia’s future culture on his shoulders.

Uranus oppose Jupiter: 4 March 2016

This transit occurs only once in each 84-year cycle of Uranus and is a time for Abbott to proceed with caution.  He will likely be presented with many new challenges not including those he will seek out for his legacy. Sudden changes will occur that will require his immediate action.  Sudden gains or losses are possible at this time.  Which one it will be, depends largely on how much Abbott is paying attention. He may feel like he’s catching a great wave while surfing in his budgie snugglers but his timing may be out and he may get dumped – big time.

His warrior disposition and attitude will allow him to take on big risks as he is building his support base to take Turnbull on. His big ego will make him feel overly optimistic. The promises he will make to his support base may not be as easy to keep as he thinks. His feeling that everything is destined to go his way is not worth it because this transit is not particularly lucky.

Jupiter sextile Mercury: 9 March 2016

Abbott has an unusually sharp mind now and can communicate his ideas to others very clearly.  It is an excellent time for planning and strategizing, and he will exercise good judgement in making decisions.  He is very sure of himself and should obtain a good level of support.

His friends will bring good news and maybe even bring Abbott new political opportunities.  He may receive a communication from someone out of his past who will encourage his endeavor to topple Turnbull.

In general, this transit is excellent  for all kinds of communication, both in politics  and socially. Since it is also a good transit for writing and publishing we may see one or more articles in NewsCorpse.

For the doubters in Liberal National Party during this transit it is more likely Abbott could achieve a meeting of minds now.  Since he is more confident and optimistic, he is more willing to compromise.

Abbott’s keen attention to detail allows him  to make successful plans now.  This is the influence of Jupiter and Abbott can if he is motivated use these increased mental capabilities to further his plans to topple Turnbull.

Mars square Pluto: 12 March 2016

This combination can allow Abbott’s true inner despot to appear if challenged. There could be angry scenes and potential “violence”. This transit shows Abbott’s chances of winning the Leadership from Turnbull are poor.

CONCLUSION

From looking at Abbott’s chart his plan to topple Turnbull at Easter, 2016 won’t last the distance. It seems that by mid – end of March events will conspire to expose the angry authoritarian Abbott. This may be the beginning of the split in LNP with Abbott leading a far right new party. The purpose of this new Party is to get as many seats in the Senate so that Abbott and his Conservative arsehole dinosaurs control the political destiny of our country. He only needs to win a few seats to have balance of power in the Senate.

By the way, I hope he does try to win leadership back from Turnbull because the chaos that will ensue from that action will be marvelous to behold. Abbott is deluded  and has many traits of a sociopath.

The astrological reading above may only happen because he has crazy egotistic tendencies. The more he fucks up, the more likely we will see the end of LNP government – the party of the 1%ers.

 


Star Code Reading > Tony Abbott and the Time Line of His Downfall

December 24, 2014
“If there is dust on our lens, we see dark spots in the heavens.” Carlos SuaresAbboch Murdott pix text

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.

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.

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.  A total solar eclipse on his Scorpio Sun also happened on the same day  of his 2013 birthday  transiting Pluto at 9.29 Capricorn was on Australia’s Sun, exact to the minute!!

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.

abbott transits 8 dec 2014 with angles circled & arrow to Asc copy

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.

planets orbits time

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 transits 8 dec 2014 with arrow Mars opp MH

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.

Abbott trans IC cut

 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

 

abbott transits 8 dec 2014 with arrow Uranus opp Asc

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.

January, 2015

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.

March, 2015

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.

April, 2015

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.

May, 2015

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.

Conclusion

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.
