A Tale of Two Librans
Suddenly, the spirit of Margaret Thatcher is all over British politics again in 2016. The Iron Lady’s birth chart is connected to Theresa May’s very closely. May has the Sun at 8 Libra, Thatcher had Mars at 9 Libra. May has Neptune at 29 Libra, Thatcher had Panacea at 28 Libra. You are seeing double. Those horoscopes line up.
We don’t yet have a birth time for Theresa May, born on October 1st, 1956, Eastbourne but this is a tale of two Super Librans.
War and Peace
Libra is the sign which is prepared to engage in war to preserve or win peace. Thatcher famously fought over The Falklands. One of Theresa May’s first policy promises concerned Trident. I suspect this might be why astrology foretold a second referendum on independence in Scotland (and why the stars saw success this time.) Hit Search on this website if you want to catch up with that old prediction. Astrology and history both tell us that whenever Jupiter goes into Libra – weeks away as I write this in July 2016 – we see the word ‘nuclear’ hit the headlines again. Make no mistake, PMTM means business about Trident, which of course puts her on a collision course with Scotland as soon as the front door of 10 Downing Street has closed.
Jupiter in Libra
Jupiter in Libra is a phenomenal influence on global politics not possible in 12 years and it starts in the second week of September 2016. PMTM is strongly Libran and that part of her personality, born with the Sun, Diana and Neptune in Libra, will be well and truly activated from September 2016 through October 2017.
Andrea Leadsom was unusually lacking in Libra – she has nothing in that sign – so in many ways the outcome at 10 Downing Street was about the right woman, with the right horoscope, in the right place, at the right time.
Lady Thatcher, Horoscope Fan
Not a lot of people know that Lady Thatcher was interested in her horoscope. She told the House of Commons ‘I come under Libra, which is a very balanced sign.’
The eminent astrologer Marjorie Orr was even asked by Thatcher’s press secretary, Bernard Ingham, for a tape-recorded reading. Of course, Thatcher was friends with Ronald Reagan, who had his own astrologer, Joan Quigley.
The full story is told in my friend Neil Spencer’s brilliant strange-but-true history of astrology, True as the Stars Above. Let’s hope PMTM also has an interest in astrology, or at least the willingness to make her birth time public. After all…when astrologers have politicians’ accurate birth times, they can work wonders with prediction, even beating the polls (especially beating the polls).
Theresa May’s Lucky Roll – Her Jupiter Return
Even without a birth time, though, her astrological chart suggests, Theresa May is made for these times. In fact she’s on the luckiest roll for 12 years.
She has Jupiter, the planet of opportunity, good fortune and solutions, helping her repeatedly. May had her Jupiter Return (tremendously lucky) as the big planet moved over 17 Virgo on July 1st-7th 2016. Virgo rules hard work and health. For politicians it rules employment and the NHS.
May was born with Jupiter at 17 Virgo in the Sixth House of duty and service and right on cue, a new, free and independent nation wanted a leader who would address the issue of health tourism.
Theresa May’s winning streak continues from July into September, as Jupiter in Virgo (which speaks to the millions of British voters born with Uranus or Pluto in Virgo, in the Sixties) continues to light up her chart.
Jupiter conjuncts the Prime Minister’s Proserpina at 26 Virgo from August 22nd-26th 2016. It then moves to conjunct Mercury at 28 Virgo from August 31st to September 4th.
Proserpina is a 2000 year-old symbol of the woman who negotiates two sides. This asteroid in Theresa May’s chart is Pluto’s wife. She’s powerful. She’s also the daughter of Ceres, who is perhaps even more powerful.
Watch August 22nd through September 4th 2016, as PMTM is given a platform not possible in 12 years to be the go-between, but also the spokesperson, for crucial NHS and employment issues, both ruled by Virgo.
Virgo rules the working people – the working class – and it also rules doctors’ surgeries. What Theresa May is saying as she takes power is not an empty promise. Her horoscope says she genuinely believes her promises.
The Pound and The Dollar – Phew!
The pound plunged on Brexit as we all know. You read predictions, several months ago, elsewhere on this website, about the global financial situation with the crazy behaviour of Mars Retrograde in Scorpio, the banking sign. Watch what happens when Mars in Scorpio finally quits on 2nd August. That’s at least some of the heat, urgency and tension gone.
The remainder of the global currency carve-up will take place as Ceres goes through Taurus (cashflow) from July 17th through October 13th, 2016 and again from February 4th 2017 through April 29th of that year.
Does it all work out in the end? Yes. Jupiter (the good fortune planet, again) moves into Scorpio on October 11th, 2017 where he will stay until November 8th, 2018, bringing a stunning boom – especially if you have Scorpio horoscope factors in your chart. It’s the happy landing after a bumpy ride.
If TMPM can live out her full term in office she will gain from leading Britain through potentially one of its biggest booms in 12 years. Scorpio rules deadly serious finance but also the mortgages in our lives. Jupiter is a tremendous problem-solver but also, ultimately, the symbol of abundance, growth, hope, optimism and vast opportunity. Once he is there from Autumn 2017 anyone in power will reap rich rewards, until the end of 2018.
Who is Theresa May?
Who is Theresa May, really? Her chart suggests she finds her identity by serving. Doing her duty is crucial to her sense of self and it’s absolutely genuine. We can figure this out even without a birth time. She has a whopping Virgo chart signature despite being a Sun Libran. As we will see later in this horoscope analysis, though, she may well have the Moon in Leo (see her leopardskin shoes, above – one of several pairs she owns).
That big Virgo stellium is powerful, though. I suspect she also has a real concern with her own wellbeing and health which translates into a wider obsession with other people’s health too. Anybody with a big Virgo signature is inevitably concerned with doctors, food, drugs, drink, surgery, healing, fitness – either because of their work, or because their own body will never let them ignore their health.
Here Come The Women
What is fascinating about world politics from September 10th 2016 until October 10th 2017 is the arrival of big Jupiter in Libra, the sign of equality.
Lots of you saw that it was on this basis alone that I called the American election for Hillary Clinton even before Donald Trump had decided to run. Clinton lacks a birth time too, but as a woman headed for what has always been a man’s job, she was just so right for these times. Sometimes you can call the astrology without having a birth time, because of bigger global trends. Some leaders just fit.
Equality Rules 2016-2017
Jupiter in Libra is going to be massive! So big, in fact, that he is already back-announcing himself before he actually changes signs on September 10th. You are already seeing the signs. Libra has been, always will be, about equality. And that means women in power. In fact, it was Bill Clinton who ensured that happened, on a previous Jupiter in Libra cycle when he gave women top jobs in Washington.
Seventies Babies – Generation Libra
This Jupiter in Libra cycle which PMTM and Hillary Clinton are surfing, weeks before it happens, is truly unusual. Why? Generation Libra are today’s influential voters and campaign donors. They are finally of age to become heavyweights around the world. If you were born in the Seventies, that’s you. You have Uranus or Pluto in Libra. You rock the vote. And you’re all about equality. This includes equal marriage which PMTM favours.
Special Relationships and Odd Couples
Who would have thought that two women would be competing for power in Britain, or that we may see two women eventually lead the ‘special relationship’ between the White House and Downing Street in 2017?
Libra rules odd couples as well as equality – duets made up of two opposite types, who are equal but different.
Don’t forget that likely Leo Moon either. A Leo Moon is a Leader’s Moon. The jokes about a leopardskin front door in Downing Street are a sure sign. The immediate focus on Larry the cat and his new owner…I’m betting that PMTM has the Moon there as the sign of big cats and little cats could be prominent in her chart if she was born in the early hours of the morning, up until around 9.00am. If we get an accurate time and May does have that Leo moon, then the uncanny similarity to Margaret Thatcher is complete. Why?
How Top Tory Leaders Have Leo Moons
The Lady had her Moon in the sign of the lion. It is the traditional sign of the Queen or King who rules the court. David Cameron had the Moon in Leo. So did Churchill. It’s almost a Tory tradition. For me, though, it’s the leopardskin that gives it away. Leo skin.
The Virgo Node Repeats 1979 – 2016
Thatcher herself romped into power on May 4th 1979 with dazzling transits. Along with her regal, born-to-lead Moon in Leo she was also born with the North Node there. On election day, 1979, Lucky Jupiter was at 1 Leo exactly conjunct her North Node at 1 Leo. Now that’s destiny. The transiting node at 15 Virgo was also trine Thatcher’s own fortunate Jupiter at 14 Capricorn, the most ambitious sign of the zodiac in her Tenth House of success.
The Ghost of the NHS
Cometh the woman, cometh the hour. How true of astrology, that Theresa May should be lining up for 10 Downing Street all these years later, when the Node is also passing through Virgo. The ghost of the NHS under Thatcher is back. Virgo is the sign that so many of May’s potential voters have looming large in their charts. If you’re in your fifties, you have Uranus or Pluto in Virgo. Your generation is here to change the NHS, if you’re British.
PMTM can look forward to lucky Jupiter in Libra moving over her natal Diana, Sun and Neptune – also in that sign – into 2017. She’s going to need a partner. Who will it be? Primarily her husband, of course. Yet there will be another. Watch. Thatcher had Reagan. Libra is about equality but it’s also about two, not one. These times are suited to double-acts and duets, not lone rangers. I think we’ll see the first signs of PMTM in a new political partnership once we see the New Moon in Libra in the first week of October 2016.
Generation Virgo, Generation Libra
The generation born with Uranus or Pluto in Libra want to see power couples – in power! And they vote. All those babies born in the Seventies have grown up and are running the country. It’s in their astrological DNA to want equality at the top, but also a real partnership.
The person PMTM chooses to stand on the other half of her scales will back her on war. The uncanny return of old Eighties cycles in astrology means one thing, as I predicted with a group of astrologers in Bath, England over a year ago. Trident is back. Watch what happens as we approach Christmas 2016. The peace movement is about to take off all over again but the famous Libran war-for-peace stance will also be huge.
The NHS Until May 10th 2017
The public obsession with the NHS will not let up until the North Node leaves Virgo on May 10th, 2017. Generation Virgo wants change. The North Node will pass over 0-15 Virgo from now (July 2016) until then, making an exact hit on Theresa May’s Panacea at 14 Virgo and her Minerva at 0 Virgo. She’s speaking to that generation, then.
Theresa May in 2018 and 2019
March-May 2017 and February 2018 will see a major change in the balance of power around PMTM, as Pluto at 20 Capricorn moves across her Hygiea at 20 Capricorn in the Tenth House of ambition and position. It’s musical chairs at the top. A big shift in the people politics. Like all people with Hygiea in Capricorn, May is a cautious, careful, practical careerist who insures herself against future risk all the time, but what happens in March-May 2017 and February 2018 will pile the pressure on. The cycle continues into 2019.
Pluto is at 20 Capricorn again in December 2018 and January 2019 and again on this hotspot in her horoscope in September, October, November 2019. Power struggles. Without a birth time, though, and no accurate sign for her Midheaven, in particular, we can’t say if that is a serious threat.
Watch this space! Watch those leopardskin shoes! Someone send me the birth times!
