Nonetheless, the astrology of Brexit has followed a pattern so concise and self-evident that even non-astrologers might grasp it completely. This address, which came to be known as the Bloomberg Speech, took place in central London on January 23, at a. This places Neptune within a one-minute conjunction with the Ascendant. Also ominous of future woes and calamity is the exact conjunction of Neptune with asteroid Melpomene, muse of tragedy.
Without any doubt, the combination of these deceiving, quixotic visions of a better future outside of Europe have unleashed a legacy of woe upon the very fabric of Britain, no matter the eventual outcome. At a more esoteric level, the muses are the daughters of memory. This is quite literally true as they are the offspring of Mnemosyne goddess of remembrance and her consort, Zeus. Wherever any of the muses is configured in the astrology there is a strong connection to memories, which are an individual retrospection.
The recollections of a personal past determine the expectations of how the future might unfold, and approaches to that future are selected or rejected accordingly.
Beauty is in the eye of the beholder precisely because the formative experiences of an individual that constitute their expectations are the remembered preferences and aversions of a subjective past. The muses model idealism based on accepted past norms. The muses represent then, an attempt to personify the process of understanding what perfection looks like. As a result, one can perhaps appreciate the potential of their power in a mundane chart. For a great many people, especially those who are older, whose past travels further back and has thereby been more radically supplanted by change, the difference between what the perfect society is and the society they find themselves in is fundamentally more jarring.
George Orwell was another who attempted to frame this English utopia which seems to have become a part of the fabric of the Brexit dream. The Brexit chart is fascinating, then, because of its appealing allusion to a better and more comforting past. But let us now examine the broad strokes of the Brexit Bill, the actual piece of legislation that made the referendum possible in the first place.
As stated, its name was spoken aloud on January 23rd for the first time. United Kingdom January 1, a. The symmetry, despite its disenchanting consequence, is beautiful. Sun, which, let us not forget, is an event that has not happened within the scope of the U. It was this series of legislations which really hardened attitudes against British rule and gave rise to the American War of Independence.
After this disastrous American experiment, Britain never again dared to impose direct taxation of any of her colonies, and it really marked the beginning of the end for the British Empire. Who holds the power: King or Pope? Within a decade, the battle was joined, and after the Protestant Reformation, the Church of Rome never again held so much authority. Under Pluto, the test of sovereignty is absolute and chooses right every time. If we take a long view of the prevailing dynamics of British rule at each of these transits, it is therefore possible to glean some of the key foundations of the mundane Pluto-to-Sun transit.
Pluto has this effect, wherever he narrows his focus, of testing for existential validity. To fail the test leads to annihilation, and the old, indestructible crucible of Hades is once again readied for the formulation of new and stronger alloys.

Jupiter is the planet of expansion, abundance, law, justice, and religion, while Saturn is the planet of constriction, discipline, limits, borders, and rules — especially for marriage, families, and societies.
Saturn is more concerned with tradition, material security, and safety. In the planetary hierarchy, the teaching is that rules are needed in the midst of expansion and prosperity. In many ways, Jupiter represents the liberal philosophy of John Locke — , the British philosopher and physician who believed in the innate goodness and cooperative spirit in the human being and the human race. His anti-authoritarian views are expressed in his Two Treatises [on civil government] , published in Thomas Hobbes — , on the other hand, believed that all people are not inherently good.
His more conservative and materialistic philosophy represents Saturn. Hobbes was a British philosopher and ardent monarchist, whose major work Leviathan published in concerned the structure of society and legitimate government. He was less trusting in the human being to look out for others, and more willing to let a government have absolute authority over its subjects and its institutions. While both men agreed that social contracts exist to preserve the common good and to protect private rights, they disagreed on how the social contract should be achieved, with Locke trusting more in the ability of people in a political community to reach consent among themselves.
The planetary equivalents of Left Liberal and Right Conservative views on political matters can help us to better understand the critical issues of our times. Applied to the current red-hot issue of immigration in the U. The U. Beyond that, illegal immigrants also residing in the U.

Up to one million of these migrants have criminal records, including some 10, MS gang members from El Salvador, known for drug smuggling and acts of extreme violence. But the Left wants to protect all migrants at whatever cost. They have all refused to comply with Federal Immigration Law. Illegal aliens are welcomed and receive many benefits. The Right wants stronger immigration laws and enforcement.

In France, large numbers of African migrants are now demanding citizenship papers and housing — instantly. Immigration Agreement of December — and now only a matter of switching filing categories. The fact is that the Liberal Left Jupiter now openly embraces a Globalist philosophy that does not recognize national sovereignty and the rights of citizens.
It is more focused on a global society and a grand vision of the world, where the rights of migrants are prioritized over the rights of nation-states and their citizens, ironically — as Jupiter also classically rules over the nation-state. Planets do not normally switch roles, but we see it here, with Saturn taking over concerns that Jupiter has abandoned.

California Governor Gavin Newsom and other Democratic leaders have made similar public announcements. Thank you for the interesting facts about our full moon. A charge nurse at a convelescent home said there is emotional upheaval not only at Full Moon but at New Moon also I have noticed for yrs that people get very short tempered around a full moon, and I notice that even within myself.
You especially see it in driving. What I would like to know is what is going on since last Saturday, Feb.
Four of my close friends seemed to get really quiet due to heightened stress, and I and many others have been experiencing anxiety like feelings since then. People were even posting about it on Facebook!
I am a Scorpio, and our intuition and ability to "feel" other people's feelings is extremely strong, so I'm sure beyond a shadow of a doubt that is contributing to my recent level of emotional and physical intensity. I would just like to know why it is all so intense right now, beyond what I've experienced in the past? Is something going on that anyone knows of right now that would affect this like a full moon does at a lower intensity?
Thank you. I had been wondering if we had a full moon, which brought me to this site to see. My wife has Alzheimer's and I noticed she was more confused this Sunday, and that control of my temper almost got me to the moon, I got so upset that I had a very hard time sleeping well that night I had a lot of acid intergestion, being a caregiver is tough enough I don't need the moon adding to it. Wow, what can I say? I love the moon.
I hate cloudy nights when you cannot see the moon, ya know?
Just want to let you know that your almanac has been in my family for years. I am 70 years old,but I remember my Daddy had one, and it being one of the things that was not looked as " just a book.
Later on, I remember one of my sisters using it to check the gestation of certain amimals, I hope that's the right word. She would breed her pigs, to put eggs in her incubator, go fishing, and so many other things. I had a brother who used it to set crops, set eggs, to fish, and so on. I still enjoy it to this day. Thank you for so many years of enjoyment. I know you weren't around when I was born tho. Hi, Jan, This made our day!
We always enjoy hearing from Almanac fans who represent generations of readership! Same here Jan im not as elder as you, but everything we did around our farm was based on the moon. This knowledge led me to learn how to compile birth natal charts. Our lives are amazing when viewed through astrology. My husband is planning to have knee replacement surgery in the near future.
I would like to know what days are the best to have surgery. My Mother never did anything without consulting the Almanac first!
She is now 94 and in the nursing home, so I can't ask her. Please help me out!

A word to the wise: walk, walk, walk! My husband has had both knees done he can climb a ladder with 50 lb bag feed he is a rancher. He can carry large hay bales. Meanwhile, a partial lunar eclipse is when a portion of the moon passes through the Earth's umbral shadow and it basically looks like a large part of the moon is covered by a shadow.
Here's where things get even more complicated: A Penumbral eclipse happens when the moon passes through the Earth's Penumbral shadow. In this type of eclipse, none of the moon is completely shaded by the Earth's umbra which is the fully shaded inner region of a shadow. This is the weakest type of eclipse—but still a pretty cool one to see if you can spot it.
You already know that a total lunar eclipse is when the moon passes completely under the Earth's umbral shadow. However, the moon doesn't completely disappear. Instead, it appears completely, just in shadows—and is hard to see if you are not looking for the eclipse, according to Space. When a moon appears red during a total lunar eclipse sometimes referred to as a blood moon , it looks even more mystical than when it is just in shadows. However, this can happen during the total portion of an eclipse because, while the moon is in complete shadow, a bit of light passes from the sun through the Earth's atmosphere, and the colors make the moon look red.
It's a pretty cool effect, but unfortunately, it will be a few years until we may see that again. Typically, there are at least two lunar eclipses per year, but they vary in how strong they are. Because of the three different types of eclipses, no one lunar eclipse is alike. For example, the last total lunar eclipse was in January , and we won't get to see another total lunar eclipse in the U.
However, don't lose hope. Because they do happen often and can be visible to a larger part of the world, you will likely be able to spot the next lunar eclipse long before then. If you missed the recent partial lunar eclipse that happened on July 19, , don't fret. Since they happen a few times a year, the next one coming up is less than six months away. According to NASA , which keeps a list of lunar eclipse predictions until , the next eclipse which is Penumbral is happening on January 10th, , and will be visible from parts of North America, Europe, Africa, Asia, and Australia.
However, unless you're in the very northern part of Canada or Alaska, you likely won't see it. This map shows a pretty good representation of who around the globe will be able to view the next lunar eclipse and most of us in the U.
