Australian Election Astrology 2019
This Australian election in 2019 is an unusual tale of two Taurus men. Prime Minister Scott Morrison (Liberal) and Opposition Leader Bill Shorten (Labour). Taurus is the sign that rules economics, taxation, banks, big business, the sharemarket – and above all, values. This election, called for the day of a Full Moon across Taurus-Scorpio (more on that in a moment) will be about Australia’s hip pocket. The former Australian Prime Ministers (two of them) Malcolm Turnbull and Tony Abbott, also happen to be Scorpios. This will be an intense and emotional day for all four men, born in the opposite signs of Taurus and Scorpio, dealing with the results of an extremely divided nation on a Full Moon clash. Watch for the shock of a woman’s influence as well. Venus and Uranus combine on 18th May and that’s a jaw-dropping statement about a female lightning strike.
The Bill Shorten and Scott Morrison Natal Charts
We don’t have verified birth times for either man, so there is no point in looking at the natal (birth) charts here. In astrology, an accurate clock time for the cutting of the umbilical cord is required, to predict politics. The angles of the chart – the Midheaven, Ascendant, Descendant and Immum Coeli – are missing without a time. And the angles show career transformation and a change or upgrade in residence, all of which can happen if you are leaving the job of Prime Minister, staying on, or taking it on.
So, forget the birth horoscopes of both leaders. We can just about trust they are both Taureans. In fact, Bill Shorten has an expressly Taurean name. Bill. Astrology is full of synchronicities like this. I am sure you have already thought of Scott Morrison in terms of the phrase ‘scot free.’ What is characteristic of this sign, is its stubbornness about values. Taureans can be Capitalists, Socialists, Communists, Environmentalists – but they don’t budge. Yet, the gathering storms in the world economy between now (April 11th) and election day (May 18th) suggests that both leaders will have to shift. Uranus in Taurus is here. For reasons which have not yet come to pass, both men will have to radically change their position. What are we looking at here? A crisis for the banks? A cryptocurrency-led revolution? Time will tell, but it’s going to tell pretty quickly.
The Astrology Charts for Australia
Australia has a few ‘birth’ charts each showing different stages in her evolution as a nation. We test them by looking for major events, like The Dismissal.
Labour’s big-spending visionary, Gough Whitlam was sacked because of the way he handled the Australian economy. What we have here on that fateful day in Canberra in 1975 – timed – is a remarkable line up at 21 Taurus and 21 Scorpio. These are the economy and finance signs. We found an exact pattern with the Midheaven at 21 Scorpio, North Node 21 Scorpio, Immum Coeli at 21 Taurus and South Node at 21 Taurus.
This painful memory of lost leadership and constitutional crisis for Labour is healed on May 18th 2018. Why? We find Jupiter, the great problem-solver of astrology, sitting at 22 Sagittarius. Panacea, another healer, is at 22 Gemini. Ops, a symbol of hope is at 22 Cancer. The spirit of Gough Whitlam is smiling on this election. Bill Shorten and Gough Whitlam are linked in time.
How the Different Australian Astrology Charts Measure Up
We’re looking for a chart that chimes with that historic line-up at 21 degrees of Taurus and Scorpio when Whitlam was dismissed. Maybe a chart that even makes sense to people pushing for the Change the Date campaign.
So, what about 1967 and 27th May? Many people feel this is when the two ‘halves’ of Australia came together following a triumph for democracy (at last) as indigenous Australians won their right to a full, free and fair vote.
This 27th May 1967 horoscope for Australia is arguably the most powerful chart we have, because it shows the modern nation, about 200 years after white settlement, finally coming to terms with the rights of its original owners.
Australia Day is often used for the national horoscope, but as it is also known as Invasion Day to indigenous people, as an astrologer I am more than happy to work with 27th May 1967. All of which makes that 18th May 2019 election very interesting!
There are other contenders for the Australian chart. The actual (legal) white settlement paperwork appeared on February 7th 1788, for example. There is also a January 1st chart, and so on.
They are all triggered for the day Australia votes on its future – Labour, Liberal, Green, Independent – and so on.
The January 26th horoscope shows Neptune at 21 Libra. Fortuna at 21 Pisces.
The February 7th horoscope shows Neptune at 21 Libra. Panacea at 21 Sagittarius.
The January 1st horoscope shows Vulcano at 20 Aquarius.
As this country has gone through so many changes, we also have a horoscope for 9th May 1901. This fits the pattern. It shows the North Node at 22 Scorpio. The South Node at 22 Taurus. Fortuna at 21 Sagittarius. Panacea at 21 Aries.
The horoscope for 27th May 1967 set for 11.59pm in Canberra also rings true in an uncanny way, if we’re looking for a horoscope that chimes with this 18th May 2019 election:
Mercury 22 Gemini. Uranus 20 Virgo. Neptune 22 Scorpio. Panacea at 21 Leo. Vesta at 21 Scorpio.

Do You Have Chart Factors at 3 Taurus?
Talking more about your own birth chart, if you have personal horoscope factors at 3 Taurus in your Second House of money and property, then the results of the Australian election will have an impact on your hip pocket nerve. We are seeing a pattern that has not occurred in 80 years: Venus at 3 Taurus conjunct Uranus at 3 Taurus.
Watch the Australian Dollar Jump Sideways
Watch the Australian dollar jump sideways or turn upside-down near 18th May 2019. This is part of a wider world economy shift. In fact, the results of the Australian election will play their part in Global Financial Crisis II, which I predicted over a year ago on this website, set for May 2019. Remember, this was before the due date of the election was a gleam in Prime Minister Scott Morrison’s eye! You can check the original prediction here.
I have mentioned money laundering before as an ongoing problem in 2019 and the Australian election will be influenced by that very strongly. One of the reasons for this is that Australian banks lock into a bigger pattern. Keep watching that and asking questions. This is an election about the economy but it is also an election about the banks.
Watching Michaelia Cash
In astrology we pay attention to symbolism, as you know if you are a regular reader. So it’s hard not to go past the importance of Michaelia Cash in Election 2019. I would like to talk more about her birth chart, but although I emailed her office for confirmation of her time, place and date of birth some time ago, I am still waiting for a reply. This, together with the absence of verified birth data for Scott Morrison and Bill Shorten, means we have to track the astrology chart for the nation and overlook the individuals.
What Are We Seeing in Astrology for the Australian Election?
We’ve found a hotspot across all the different horoscopes for the nation. It is 20, 21, 22 degrees of any zodiac sign. It was triggered at The Dismissal and it will be triggered again on 18th May 2019. Jupiter at 22 Sagittarius is a symbol of hope, expansion, growth, progress, improvement, solutions, optimism and answers. This is classically the kind of election ‘weather’ that arrives when people are prepared to gamble on a better future and switch leaders.
Seeing the Stars on the Australian Flag
What’s in the stars? Astrology has a pretty good track record with Australian politics and my colleagues in the business, Milton Black and Ed Tamplin have used their own techniques over the years, to accurately predict trends as well as outcomes.
My interest in prediction is not so much the coin-flip element of choosing a winner in a two-horse race. I’m most curious about what we, the people, need to know – in a political climate when so much is covered up. Have a look at this old story from 24th August 2018 which shows date-stamped, validated predictions about the plot against Julie Bishop (and the resulting spill which took Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull out of power). Canberra can duck and dive, but the astrology tells the truth.
What Astrology Said in August 2018
It’s time to look back, nine months, to see what was written in the stars for Australia then. This is what you read on this site:
“There will be shocks galore – and shocks in store – for Peter Dutton, Malcolm Turnbull and Tony Abbott – from March 2019 onwards. Scott Morrison and Bill Shorten will be pulled into the electrical storm. So will Julie Bishop. It’s only just begun. Meanwhile Labour’s Tanya Plibersek has her place in the sun up ahead, too. Lucky Jupiter moves into Sagittarius from November 2018 and that’s her sign, you might say.”
I am going to stand by that prediction! We are going to see shocks galore between now, 11th April and election day, 18th May, 2019. Prime Minister Scott Morrison has called the election for the day of an exact line-up between Uranus (revolution, independence, lightning bolts, upheaval, rebellion) and Venus (women). It takes place with Venus at 3 Taurus and Uranus also at 3 Taurus, and Australia has not seen that pattern for over 80 years. Watch the women.
I mentioned how Taurus Bill Shorten has a ‘Taurus’ name – Bill. My eyes are drawn to the Liberal party’s Ms. Cash for the same reason. Yet, Julie Bishop has not gone away, either. There are some real surprises in store involving the female of the species.
That August 2018 Prediction!
This is what you read nine months ago: “Julie Bishop is no longer Australia’s Foreign Minister and she is hinting she may not be a player in the next election. And yet, that Australian horoscope hotspot is really clear. Women will come front-and-centre in Canberra by 2019. So will Julie be back? To lead? Stranger things have happened! This was a prediction made way back on 17th July 2017, so over a year before the Turnbull-Dutton-Bishop-Morrison coup. Between 2017-2019 Australia could easily see another woman rise to become leader of one of the two main political parties and perhaps even the nation, making history a second time. Julie Bishop?”
Well, she’s gone from politics, apparently – into the private sector – but she was also born with the Sun in Cancer, and Cancerians are overdue a huge upheaval on May 18th, 2019.
Election 2019 Issues in Astrology
The outstanding aspects on 18th May 2019 are as follows (using the asteroids of modern astrology):
Mercury 23 Taurus trine Pluto 23 Capricorn
Jupiter 22 Sagittarius quincunx Ops 22 Cancer
Jupiter 22 Sagittarius opposite Panacea 22 Gemini
Venus 3 Taurus conjunct Uranus 3 Taurus
Mercury 24 Taurus conjunct Minerva 24 Taurus
Mercury 24 Taurus conjunct Aesculapia 24 Taurus
FULL MOON Sun 27 Taurus opposite Moon 27 Scorpio
This election is about the economy. Taurus absolutely dominates the day and the sign of the bull, rules gold bullion and also bull share markets. What we are also seeing here is the huge influence of Australian’s global position in G.F.C.2. Let us not forget the other economy though – that’s the economy of the Greens and other parties and individuals who value the environment, animal welfare and the planet more than they value profits. For these voters it’s about koalas, not coal.
Global Financial Crisis 2 and Australia in May 2019
By the time we reach 18th May 2019, the nation will be dealing with the new reality of Global Financial Crisis 2, which arrives as Uranus crosses 0, 1, 2, 3 Taurus and triggers the credit card industry, the banks, money laundering enquiries, Blockchain technology, cryptocurrency, Brexit, Italy and the European Union, China and America – and the rest! Together with some other astrologers, like my colleague Joanne Madeline Moore, I have been predicting this for over a year.
It is typical of Uranus to produce shocks and as I write this on April 11th 2019, nobody is talking about G.F.C. 2 and everybody is chattering about electric cars. Wait for it. We are on the brink of seeing the known banking world turn upside-down in May.
What the 1967 Australian Chart Says in Astrology
The nation was reborn as a mature democracy, including its original owners (shamefully excluded in the past from the vote) on a very special day: 27th May, 1967. In the absence of a time, we use 11.59pm in Canberra, Australian Capital Territory, the country’s capital city. What we find is this line-up at 21, 22 degrees, below:
Mercury 22 Gemini. Rupert Murdoch
Neptune 22 Scorpio Budget
Panacea at 21 Leo Monarchy
Vesta at 21 Scorpio Budget
The patterns which swirl around this ‘character’ statement about modern Australia on 18th May 2019 are as follows:
Mercury 23 Taurus trine Pluto 23 Capricorn
Jupiter 22 Sagittarius quincunx Ops 22 Cancer
Jupiter 22 Sagittarius opposite Panacea 22 Gemini
What Australia Votes For – or Against – in Election 2019
Rupert Murdoch! His newspapers, television stations and media empire are shown by Mercury at 22 Gemini in the 1967 chart. Remember, he is the ‘Australian’ who has dominated the media in the United Kingdom and the United States since the 1960’s. There is an opposition here from Jupiter in Sagittarius, which describes the Worldwide Web. Looks like it’s social media versus mainstream media here. Who wins? Social media. Don’t be surprised if there are more headlines about the Murdochs ahead.
How the Monarchy Influences the Election
The Republic versus Monarchy is written into the 1960’s horoscope for Australia. The nation was ‘born’ in the Sixties with Panacea, a symbol of solutions, and also ethical and moral dilemmas, in Leo, the sign ruling the King and Queen. Leo has always been associated with the heirs to the throne. They might live on the other side of the world, but the Royal Family will also play a part in this election. This is partly because Prince Harry and Meghan, Duchess of Sussex, are expecting a baby, of course. Yet – there are some older issues here about a republic, coming to the surface again. Her Majesty the Queen, pictured here in the late Sixties, is written into the Australian chart through that Panacea in Leo pattern. She plays a part in 2019 too.
It’s about broadband too. And the ABC. Gemini rules the media, thus the focus on Rupert Murdoch and his empire, and its decision to back Prime Minister Scott Morrison. Yet Gemini also rules the internet, so – Australia’s internet will also be an election issue, perhaps along with wider questions about media ownership, internet regulation and the rest. The situation of the ABC (Australian Broadcasting Corporation) is also described by that Gemini pattern. That issue will grow.
It’s About the Economy
Most of all, this election is about the economy, people’s wages, their superannuation, property prices and the wider picture of what is clearly Global Financial Crisis 2 (by then – remember I am writing this about a month before the May 18th ballot).
The Australian 2019 election is also about values, as we’ve seen – and this includes the values of the environmental and conservation movement, addressing climate change. From the fate of Australia’s koalas to the true price of coal, we are going to see a huge national concern with the cost to the planet, of ventures like Adani. This is the chart for the Australian Stock Exchange (below) and it clearly shows a national preoccupation with the nation’s values – in an overheating world.
Selling the Property and Money Dream in May 2018
Australia came into being, in her modern form, with Neptune at 22 Scorpio in the Eighth House of trade, taxation and banks. That’s a bubble. It is a holiday from reality. The country is on constant vacation, in a different economic space to the rest of the world! She tends to get away with it and escaped the first Global Financial Crisis very neatly.
When the nation votes on 18th May 2019, Jupiter (abundance, opportunity) in Sagittarius (foreign countries) will be at 22 Sagittarius, just one degree away from making an exact semi-sextile to that Neptune at 22 Scorpio. That can only happen once every 12 years and it describes a nation of dreamers on 18th May, 2019.
Yet again, Australia will be immune to – and even benefit from – turmoil in the European Union, the United States and China. Sagittarius rules foreign people and places and with Jupiter there, our luck is in.
There is a perfect trine from Ops at 22 Cancer on election day (Cancer rules property and family) to Neptune at 22 Scorpio (Scorpio rules the banks). Ops is hidden in the word ‘optimism’ and is Jupiter’s mother. The winning party will be selling financial hope to families with expensive mortgages or dreaming of a first home.
P.S. Why Did Prime Minister Morrison Delay Election 2019?
I will leave you with an interesting question. Why did Prime Minister Scott Morrison delay calling the election, and then select the day of a Full Moon? It will be a divisive and difficult vote for Australia, because a Full Moon is always D-Day and as the Sun in Taurus (values, income) opposes the Moon in Scorpio (banks, mortgages) the whole nation will be split. Then, there is the wider question of values – the price tag on the planet, for example.
It’s an odd thing to do. And the delay is even stranger. As I said at the beginning of this feature, we don’t have a confirmed birth time for either the Prime Minister or the Leader of the Opposition – but if at least the dates are correct, then Scott Morrison came into the world with Jupiter in Leo, exactly halfway between that Full Moon on Election Day. That’s either a piece of synchronicity typical of horoscopes – or he’s been advised to do that by an astrologer! I am not sure why, as it forms a T-Square, which always spells tension. Yet, there it is. Australia votes on a Full Moon, and she will be voting on her economy.
