Great Britain really does look ‘great’ thanks to Jupiter, the planet of size, expansion and growth, in the ambitious sign of Capricorn, as she is reborn on 31st January 2020.
People are surprised to know that countries have horoscopes too, but they certainly do, and this island has been blessed with quite a few of them.
So what are we seeing in this new, latest and greatest, version of the country?

How Great Britain and Australia Become Aquarius Sisters
What is really interesting about the New Great Britain, born at 11.00pm on 31st January 2020 – is that she immediately becomes an Aquarius country. Just like Australia, her sister across the sea. Australia was ‘born’ unofficially on Australia Day, January 26th – and officially on February 7th. In either case she is a Sun Aquarius.
You’d have to bet that a crowdfunded Big Ben chime at 11.00pm (requested by Prime Minister Boris Johnson) is a definite maybe. Why? Aquarius rules people power in a group. The media have been widely reporting his request for a public-sourced ‘bob for a bong’ campaign, including the paper I sometimes write astrology features for – The Daily Express.
The New Great Britain and Her Future in Astrology
The first, really obvious thing, about this new country is the 23 degree connection with the majority of other astrology charts we have for Great Britain. The source for these charts is The Book of World Horoscopes by Nicholas Campion (The Wessex Astrologer). In fact, the new nation was born on 23rd June 2016, with an exact line-up of Uranus at 23 Aries, Ceres at 23 Aries and Mars at 23 Scorpio. That is when the majority of people voted Leave and the future was taken care of. (The long delay in 2016, 2017, 2018, 2019 was due to Mars Retrograde – the planet of action was moving backwards when PM Cameron called the vote, so the process of freedom was stuck).
So, do we have any retrogrades here? We are very lucky that PM Johnson has called 11.00pm on 31st January 2020, as Mercury is in good shape along with Venus and Mars, all firmly moving forward. Jupiter, the planet of good fortune and protection, is also moving forward. Even Saturn and Uranus are travelling in the right direction, with Neptune and Pluto following suit.
After four long and agonising years of watching their democratic vote being battered, it would seem Leave voters are being rewarded with a new astrology chart that shows a decisive, forward-thinking, forward-moving nation. No more delays.
Astrology and Tarot Readings for Great Britain, Reborn in 2020
It seems appropriate to use ‘The British Tarot’ for a reading about the reborn nation. Created by Pamela Colman Smith and Arthur Edward Waite in 1909, it was born from discussions in London and a long summer of illustration in Kent. As I write this on Friday 10th January 2020, PM Johnson’s ‘Brexit Bill’ has passed. So what are we seeing here? Character is destiny.
The Rich Nation in Need of Renovation and Repair
Make no mistake, for all the doom and gloom ‘Project Fear’ surrounding Brexit, the King of Pentacles card, and abundant Jupiter in the business sign, Capricorn, suggests a rich nation. The King here is obviously a symbol of monarchy, and it is a clear picture of King Charles or King William, as I write this in 2020. The need for renovation and repair is shown by the tangled weeds, grapevines and thick undergrowth. We can see Taurus the bull hidden on the the throne. This is very much about the need for reformation. A clean-up! The money and abundance is there, but the environment is a mess and the agriculture is in dire need of a new approach. Buckingham Palace can be seen in the background. (All Tarot photographs from the Smith-Waite deck published by U.S. Games Systems: Justin Tabari).
The Aries, Taurus, Capricorn Chart Signature
We can see this in the chart. Uranus at 2 Taurus semi-sextile Chiron at 2 Aries. The new nation will forever be about monarchy and reformation, innovation and invention – applied to the land. Of course, Britain has a green kingdom already, thanks to the stand taken by Prince Charles and Prince William, on the environment. This is a Climate Emergency card which shows the old Queen Elizabeth II with her Sun Sign Taurus, hidden on the throne, and the new monarchs to follow her. Aries the Ram is on the throne too. Picture all the lights going on after a long period when so much has been hidden and dark – that’s New Britain.
Climate Emergency Kingdom
On a more mundane note we are seeing a British wine industry with the grapes decorating the King’s robes. This is clearly Climate Emergency Britain as the temperature goes up. Long-term we are going to see a new lean, green kingdom. We have to remember that Prince George is also in the future, too. Yet – Republicans can forget it. This is a kingdom.
The architecture, the landscape, the farming, the primary industry, the Royal Family assets are all up for renewal and revival and the money is there, along with the abundant resources. Think of an overgrown garden with a green-fingered king.
What is really interesting about the King of Pentacles, as illustrated by Pamela Colman Smith, over 110 years ago, is the rather odd way, in which the animal heads on the King’s throne can be interpreted as Taurus the Bull, Aries the Ram and Capricorn the Goat. She created three hidden faces in stone. And here we see Taurus, Capricorn and Aries in the chart, in exact aspect.
Uranus at 2 Taurus semi-sextile Chiron at 2 Aries. Pluto at 23 Capricorn opposite the Midheaven at 23 Cancer and conjunct the Immum Coeli at 23 Capricorn.
The New Age of Aquarius for an Aquarian Country
The New Age of Aquarius begins on 20th December 2020, as Jupiter and Saturn line up at 0 Aquarius, ahead of Pluto’s move to 0 Aquarius on March 24th, 2023. This is clearly shown in the Temperance card from the Tarot deck. An angel pours water, in the form of the famous ‘wavy water’ Aquarius logo, from one golden cup to another. Aquarius is of course the symbol of groups. Communities and collectives. These groups are diverse, equal and co-operative. Based on friendship and the human family.
Mercury 25 Aquarius semi-sextile Saturn 25 Capricorn. Ceres at 0 Aquarius opposite the Part of Fortune at 0 Leo.
Aquarius is about equality between men and women, white and non-white, heterosexual, homosexual, lesbian and transgender. Aquarius is also about equality (within the group) uniting monarchs and commoners, rich and poor. It’s a huge symbol.
An Aquarius in Ancient Rome, where astrology comes from in Britain today – was the water-bearer who supplied the communal baths. In fact, Bath is named for its most famous Aquarian-style communal bath.
Great Britain, having left the European Union, will commit to new membership, and ‘refreshed’ membership, of other groups. Notably, from 2020, The Commonwealth. Yet, there will be others. New, global groupings of like-minded countries, together.
Again, on a more mundane note, we are going to see Climate Emergency Britain embrace new funding of public swimming pools, the clean-up of her rivers for swimming purposes (hot new summers in the 21st century) and the creation of new, artificial lakes, rivers and ponds. When Pluto goes into Pisces the Fishes, ruled by Neptune (the ocean, waterways) from 10th March in the year 2043, the nation will have a radically different system of waterway and ocean management. The New Great Britain Astrology Chart is showing water clearly and so is the Tarot.
The Star – Princess Charlotte or a Female Prime Minister?
As I write this on Friday the 10th of January 2020, it is hard to know if the fair-haired woman in The Star card is the future Princess Charlotte, or a third female Prime Minister, following PM Thatcher and PM May. Here we have the second strong message from both the astrology chart and the Tarot cards, that New Great Britain is strongly Aquarian. Pamela’s card is quite specific!
A Natural Feminist Leader
A woman (a water-bearer, the symbol of Aquarius, just as we saw in the Temperance card) pours water from two urns, filling a pond, but also watering the landscape. A bird watches from a tree. In the background, one big star shines, surrounded by others. I am sure you can see the stars of the European Union flag here. The New Great Britain Astrology Chart is backed by the Tarot here. What this card suggests is a Queen or female Prime Minister – a natural celebrity – and the star attraction in a completely new relationship with the old European Union. So who is this? Perhaps she has not even been born yet, in 2020.
I’m sure you know the old anthem – Rule Britannia, Britannia Rules the Waves! It’s a standard at The Proms. Of course, waves are hidden in the Aquarius logo, and in The Star card, above. The urn pouring water in waves. You can also see it in the Temperance card. We’ll see a new national anthem – a reworked version of Rule Britannia. Bound to!
The New European Union and the New Great Britain
What we are seeing here is a naturally green, media-friendly, female leader. She suits the Aquarian nature of the new country. Women are equal to men. She is carrying the Aquarian ideals – group-thinking, friendship, diversity, equality, community. The circle behind her is a reminder of ‘circular thinking’ – the new world of the new Britain, in which power is shared around, not controlled from the top down.
We are seeing an entirely new relationship with Europe in the stars, reforming themselves into a different kind of flag (though still yellow and blue) following Britain’s rejection of the European Union in 2016-2020.
Again, we have to note the water! There are major issues here for the new reborn country about water supply, flooding, the English Channel, the Thames and so on. This is the second of two Climate Emergency cards and it reminds us that in order to thrive (and even just survive) from 2020 onwards, New Great Britain has to take her place in one-world thinking and commit to a global initiative to control flooding, save water and perhaps create water. Again, this is long-term, but it’s going to be the transit of Pluto through Aquarius and then Pisces which does it.
Dates to Watch
Ceres at 0 Aquarius opposite the Part of Fortune at 0 Leo
Leo rules the Royal Family (the lion being an ancient symbol of monarchy in heraldry). Thus, we would be watching for a new definition between the people (Aquarius) and the monarchy (Leo) as Jupiter and Saturn move to 0 Aquarius. Between December 20th, 21st, 22nd, 23rd, 24th 2020 – we will see the usual Queen’s Christmas Message on the BBC take a dramatically different turn. New nation, new monarchy.
This is also the case again as Pluto moves to 0 Aquarius. Thus, between January 22nd-February 22nd 2024 we will see an historic change in the balance of power for the British Royal Family. Pluto moves people up, down, out and sideways within the House of Windsor, January 22nd-February 22nd 2024. The process continues in July, August, November, December 2024.
Again, it is the usual Queen’s Christmas Message for the BBC which is the obvious sign of a massive change taking place between the Royal Family and the people – and the Commonwealth. This takes place on December 25th, 2024.
Pluto Going to 0, 1, 2 Aquarius and The New Kingdom
In astrology, we don’t just see events ‘land’ from nowhere with Pluto. They gather speed and transform everything over a number of years. We are clearly seeing a massive new initiative from the monarchy, transforming the environment, the nation’s finances, the royal economy and the landscape, as Pluto goes across 0, 1, 2, Aquarius. So, we need to time this from Christmas 2020 until December 2025. Again, we are going to see a game-changing moment on Christmas Day, December 25th 2025, as the usual BBC Queen’s Speech broadcast is the global signal for the new nation and the new style of leadership.
Uranus at 2 Taurus semi-sextile Chiron at 2 Aries
What about everyday life, though? How does the New Great Britain astrology chart show the biggest shake-up for the London Underground and the famous Tube in over 248 years? We have to think very long-term for that, but it’s coming.
The Most Important Dates in the 21st Century – The Year 2037
Pluto at 23 Capricorn opposite the Midheaven at 23 Cancer and conjunct the Immum Coeli at 23 Capricorn is a substantial pattern in the chart set for New Great Britain on 31st January, 2020 at 11.00pm in London.
We are going to see a complete rethink of the famous London Underground (the tube). Perhaps, because of flooding of the Thames? Unbearable heat below the city? Let’s take a closer look at this 23 degree hotspot for the nation.
In fact, as you saw on this website as far back as February 2016, it’s this hotspot which was always going to deliver Brexit.
Most astrological charts for Great Britain have planets or other factors at 23 degrees. The year 2037 will be historic period for the Royal Family, the palaces and castles, the land and the nation. You might call it nation-changing and monarchy-changing. In fact, the entire fabric of the country (particularly with her oceans and rivers) alters. You’d have to expect ferries and other craft that have not been invented yet, to utterly change the way Londoners travel. And beyond that – the canals of Manchester, the waterways of Bristol and the rest – seem like the future of not only transport, but also leisure.
Uranus and Jupiter in 2037 Ring the Changes
Uranus, a symbol of revolution, goes to 23 Cancer in the same year that Jupiter goes to 23 Cancer – 2037. That’s 17 years away.
Between September 9th and 14th 2037, Great Britain will face issues about her own independence, as well as the independence of other nations tied to her. This triggers a revolution. The year 2037 begins the process of radical change. In the year 2038 the process continues. Britain will be set free, but also need to extend freedom to other countries. Watch June 30th 2038, when we find Pluto at 23 Aquarius and Uranus at 23 Cancer. We’d have to wonder if Australia and the Commonwealth weren’t involved then, as June 30th is the end of the financial year in Australia.
Again, we’re seeing a sequence here. Astrological events don’t just land with a thud from nowhere. They roll, over time. Thus, we end up with Pluto going over Mercury and aspecting Saturn in the year 2039.
Watching 2039 and the BBC, the Internet and Multimedia
Mercury at 25 Aquarius semi-sextile Saturn at 25 Capricorn in the new Great Britain astrology chart is a symbol of the BBC. Also, of the worldwide web. (Mercury is the messenger of the gods and rules all communication).
In the year 2039, about two decades into the future as I write this, we will see a sweeping transformation of all media, including the BBC, and the worldwide web itself (which of course was given to the world by an Englishman, Tim Berners-Lee).
We see Uranus at 25 Cancer and Pluto at 25 Aquarius in Spring 2039.
Between April 29th and May 27th 2039, Britain will see a huge shift with her national broadcaster, the BBC and the Worldwide Web as a whole, bringing in changes comparable to the invention of the printing press.
Now, over to you. What do you think? We’ll be talking more about the new horoscope for the nation on The Astrology Show in the months to come. This free podcast will feature some amazing names, from Penny Thornton to Neil Spencer. Don’t miss it.
