French Election Astrology Predictions 2017

Who will win the election in France in 2017? Marine Le Pen wants to stage a Frexit referendum that would offer the French the choice to break free of the EU, the European Union. Her rival Emmanuel Macron is a former banker who wants to stay in. Neither of them have reliable horoscopes, but we can take some educated guesses. The first part of this feature was filed on 12th April 2017, before the French went to the polls.

The second part, at the end of this page, has been filed on 25th April, using the Lenormand deck, the most famous French oracle cards in history. I will leave the interpretation of that to you…



Any time astrologers are given first one birth time, then another, the chances of the natal chart being a useful guide to destiny reduce. In the case of Donald Trump, we didn’t even begin with a proper birth certificate – and the time changed twice. Hillary Clinton presented us with two birth times, and a third was suggested.

Fiercely patriotic Marine Le Pen is just the same. 

She  has an AA rated birth chart set for 5th August 1968 at 11.20am in Neuilly sur France. The original birth time given was 11.00am, however, and I am wary of these kinds of time differences since the Donald Trump fiasco



Fortunately the chart set for France and her Fifth Republic is a good, reliable guide to history and I have also been able to road-test it for prediction, as you’ll see. It’s dated for the 5th October 1958 at 00.00 CET in Paris.

What you read on this website, way back in was a prediction of a serious terrorism risk at Christmas 2016. As The New York Times reported on 21st November 2016, an attack timed for the opening of the French Christmas markets was successfully foiled by the French authorities. Mon Dieu! – but also thank God, too.

The New York Times – Seven men who French authorities say were planning a terrorist attack have been arrested in France…The arrests occurred a few days before the opening of the popular Christmas market in Strasbourg, which attracts over two million visitors every year.

The Independent newspaper, below, reported that an Isis terror cell planned the attack for 1st December. This is three weeks wide of the original prediction, but as we’ll see in a moment, we can narrow that down.



The French horoscope reflected the Christmas risks.


This was the original astrology forecast you read on this website way back on January 10th 2015,  two years previously, and it was based purely on that chart we have for France. It was set for 00.00am (in The Book of World Horoscopes by Nicholas Campion). There was a ceremonial moment one day later, on 6th October and then General de Gaulle actually took power in January 1959. All this gives us a little wobble with the chart – maybe 2-3 weeks out, in terms of timing.

The prediction – 

“France, and Paris, will experience a Saturn Return in Sagittarius when this planet moves to 20 Sagittarius 29 on Christmas Eve, 2016, the exact position occupied by Saturn back on 5th October 1958. Chiron also forms a square on Christmas Eve at 20 Pisces 54, and that is an extremely big stress point in the French chart. In fact, December 24th 2016 (about two years away as I write this on 10th January 2015) is a major pressure point all round, as a cluster of heavenly bodies lining up in Pisces, Virgo and Sagittarius is creating a T-Square in the chart.”

“On Christmas Eve 2016, and perhaps the days either side of it, including Christmas Day itself, France will experience her Saturn Return in the sign of Sagittarius, which rules foreigners, religion, universities and publications of all kinds. She will learn a serious lesson then and take a heavy reality check. Exactly in what form, is up to France, but astrology is there as a lighthouse to warn us away from the rocks. The astrological chart for 5th October 1958 reveals precise patterns, working backwards from Charlie Hebdo to the 1960’s and it is a good, working lighthouse.”

The French chart works, but we need wiggle room with the timing. Now, what about Marine Le Pen and her plans to take France out of the EU? One thing is really clear about Europe and it was predicted way before Brexit – as far back as 5th July 2015. This is the forecast here, which you may remember seeing.


“Europe is breaking apart and this is the start. It began on the Uranus-Pluto squares ( a whole series of them, which evolved at the time of the Greek financial crisis and the rise of UKIP and Nicola Sturgeon). …. Even just using Sun Sign astrology – very simple – the Euro currently has Pluto (critical transformation) in her Second House of currency, too. It’s all adding up. The Euro will not last.”

This astrological forecast is interesting from the point of view of Scotland, in particular. It obviously foresaw Brexit a long time before it happened, but also Scotland’s second chance at independence, which Nicola Sturgeon is committed to.

What is the back story with all this? Uranus in Taurus from May 2018. The people who are put into power in 2017, or even put into power in 2018 (if others resign or are pushed out) will be those who collaborate with fate to end the Euro and EU trade.



The timing of the French election is une nightmare. Pardon my French. The first round of the 2017 French presidential election is set to be held on 23 April 2017. Should no candidate win a majority, a run-off election between the top two candidates will be held on 7 May 2017. This is right across Mercury Retrograde.

We will see a huge risk of the following for the French elections which begin on 23rd April 2017. You can look at the chart, below, to see where Mercury Retrograde, passing through Taurus and Aries, will do his worst.



  • Voter fraud.
  • Russian hacking of the election, similar to its hacking of the American vote
  • Extreme weather (possibly storms and flooding) delaying voting.
  • Suspended results or the possibility of legal recounts.
  • Peculiar circumstances which throw the whole election into chaos.


The French economy is going to be a complete mess at this time. Why? Mercury Retrograde will oppose Neptune and Jupiter in Scorpio in her Eight House, which describes the Euro, the economy. Bubbles of trouble. Speculation and fantasy. Muddle and madness! What you’re looking at here is Mercury Retrograde crossing 2, 3, 4 Taurus which occurs April 1st through 20th and then May 17th to 21st. What else is going on, though? Are we seeing a push for freedom from the EU?



The astrological chart for France.


The Sun reports “Ms Le Pen says she wants to organise a Frexit referendum “to resign from this nightmare and become free again”. As we’ve seen, her closest rival is the 39-year-old independent Emmanuel Macron, a former merchant banker who is pro-Europe, and pro-free trade. Birth data on him isn’t great and unfortunately that is not a trustworthy chart.

What is quite remarkable, though, is that France is over her Saturn Return at 20 Sagittarius in the Ninth House of immigrants, foreign people and places – and religion. The pain has been great, but the worst is over. From April, Saturn moves to 27 Sagittarius and even when he moves backwards, it’s only to 21 degrees. When he moves to conjunct Panacea at 28 Sagittarius across December 4th to 11th, 2017 we will see a hardline crackdown on all those difficult questions about terrorism, and then it’s over. C’est finis. In fact, once the planet of hope, healing, growth, solutions, optimism and expansion – Jupiter – moves across the French chart from November 2018, it’s a whole new world.  By 2019, the country can put much behind her.



We are also going to see boom times for the French economy, as Jupiter crosses Neptune, Jupiter himself and Psyche, all in the financially focussed sign of Scorpio, in the Eighth House of trade, currency and investment – from October 2017. The most stunning opportunities and solutions in 12 years present themselves and by 2018 she’s on the up.

May 2019 to April 2020 will be a different matter. Shocking. Confronting. Challenging. Enthralling. Exciting. Electrifying. At that point the nation will go through the full impact of the long Euro and EU break-up.

At that point, Marine Le Pen is going to go the full French Revolution. She may be in power by then, or truly out of it – but her destiny in the summer of 2019, which will crackle with electrical storms across Paris, will be history-making. She will be part of the biggest shake-up for the French currency and economy in our lifetime and there will be shock upon shock. Quel surprise.

I note that transiting Saturn is making an aspect (opposition) to France’s moon – what does that mean?

(P.S. Didn’t transiting Saturn make a conjunction to Trump’s Moon at the time of the US election? Is the Saturn-Moon thing a feature of our times?)

Dear Jessica Another cracking prediction and massive insights for all of us to reflect on and watch as events unfold. You are right to be wary of birth times for high profile people – why should they reveal such info to the rest of us? They may not even know what time they were born – I don’t know mine and will never be able to find out now. I love the French, such creative,sensitive and wonderful people who have been through some awful times recently, truly dreadful. I hope they get some brilliant times ahead. Jessica, this prediction leads… Read more »

Donald Trump just committed treachery against his supporters. He broke his promise to be tough on China. What do you think?

Hi Jessica, would like to ask you for any insight on an oracle question i was inspired to ask after reading the France article.My question was: “what career would i be really good in\at? My answer was, Apollo in the tenth house.I can’t seem to come up with anything.Any insight would be greatly appreciated.Love your site! Thanks Kerry

Well, I always like to brag about your Brexit prediction, Jessicia, but do you really feel the retrograde Saturn return to 21 won’t make a rumble? I ask for purely selfish reasons as I have Saturn at 20 Saggitarius in my chart and was bummed to realize it would be returning (again!)so close! Thoughts?

Hi Jessica, I have had this feeling that there may be a very surprising result on the first round of the French elections. I checked Benoit Hamon’s birthdate (26 June 1967), although I do not have his time of birth so I used 12.00. Using this time of 12.00, his Mean Node is 3 Taurus. I then checked the chart for 23 April 2017, the day of the first round of the elections, at 12.00 (again I was not sure what time to use that day) and the Sun will be at 3 Taurus. Could Hamon be the surprise factor?… Read more »

Dear Jessica,
I also would like your insight into a Oracle question. My question was, “The new job that I’m starting tomorrow will it be a success?” I got Neptune in The 10th House. What can you tell about this combination?
Thanks, NP

Thankyou Jessica! Respectfully, please be careful with statements like ‘russians hacking the election, just like they hacked the american one’. Sorry. there’s absolutely no * evidence* (by all the legal criteria and definitions of the word) the american elections were hacked at all, let alone by russians. There is however lots of MSM smoke and mirrors, blaming, fear mongering and saber rattling around that whole issue. So why would the big bad scary russians want to do that to french elections? Perhaps something like ‘ conjecture, misinformation, projection of the shadow, neptunian murkiness’ is a better description. I have no… Read more »

Hi Jessica,
We now have a general election called in the UK for June 8th – any insights please, and how will this effect Brexit? Just to put my mind at rest
Many thanks

Dear Jessica, Merci mille fois for your article on the French elections. A presidential election has never been so uncertain in France as this one. This morning’s poll said : 23 % Macron, 22 % Le Pen, 20 % Fillon, 19 % Mélenchon whereas Hamon only makes 8 %. Once, you told me in a post that I was psychic. I’m not sure I am, but if I listen to myself, I think that the smaller candidates (Poutou, Arthaud, Asselineau, Cheminade) will make a better score than what the poll say. Also, I have the feeling that Le Pen won’t… Read more »

Hi ! Thanks for your new predictions !

You already should know that the French home office admitted that 500.000 electors were registered twice in the electoral list. This could make part of the risk of fraud that you denounce.

Grosses bises

Hello Jessica
Bit out of the topic
I just read your blog about
Revolution! Astrology and Your Money 2018 to 2026

I am Pisces 01-03-1979
Can you tell me about my finances
I had been through tough times
Chances to buy flat or good business

Many thanks

First round results are out. Le Pen is on second place. Do you still think she has a shot at the presidency? Experts are all suggesting that Macron will annihilate Le Pen in the second round. Was watching Euro TV and they were jokingly suggesting that the only way Le Pen wins is if something happens to Macron. Are the planets changing in the next 2 weeks to cause any change?

OK Jessica, after seeing the results, I think I don’t have the slightest chance to become the next Madame Soleil (btw, did you know her ?). The smaller candidates did not make a better score and Le Pen is qualified for the 2nd round (it was close though). Now, we have Macron/Le Pen, both incarnating a kind of “renewal” (eventhough Le Pen’s idea of renewal looks more like chaos and fear…). I’m scared that the people who voted for Fillon will go to Le Pen rather than Macron because so many of them a real right-wingers. What do you think… Read more »
Merci Jessica for writing about France elections AND the economy. I really hope the economy gets better because we’ve had a hard time these past years. Small businesses, craftsmen and self-employed have been suffering so much. Purchasing power has been down also. I have a small business with my husband and things ARE looking a little brighter this year ! The good side is that we have to get creative to make our business thrive ! I’m just still puzzled about this whole end of euro and the banking system that will be turned upside down in 2018 and how… Read more »
These cards are very interesting, and, I think, pertinent. The lady in the first might be France herself. She bears a striking resemblance to The Statue of Liberty, with that strikingly similar head dress, made and presented to America by the French at a time of new liberty from a shackling power. She is showing firm, confident composure, as if she is in possession of a fresh new mandate. The way the bouquet is arranged appears like a brides – new beginnings, the start of a different way in life. Also, the number 9 above her head is the number… Read more »

Jessica please look at transits for Marine Le Pen today, I included Ceres, Spica, Reguluus…they are all conjunct her Ascsendant ! A Queen is born…

Hi Jessica, Most of the French are breathing again after two weeks of a really trashy political battle. I can’t believe we have such a young president now ! I really hope he will get the country back on its feet again. You were right (encore !) : on Friday, the Macron team reported a hacking attack resulting in documents being published on the Internet, most of them being fake. Also, the election is not entirely finished as we now need to return to the voting booth for the legisative elections on 11 and 18 June. We’ll see if Macron… Read more »

The Economist, Tarot and Astrology

When The Economist magazine published its now-famous 'Tarot Cards' cover, The World in 2017, it was immediately seen by many psychics as an accidental prediction.
