The purpose of this article is two fold. Firstly to do a post-mortem analysis of the Britain’s exit and secondly what are the future events likely following the Brexit.
Background of EU.
The EU, formerly known as the European Economic Community, or Common Market is the largest and richest trading bloc in the history of the world, and current intentions are that it should slowly mature into a political federation. It already ranks as a political confederation in which each member has surrendered its sovereignty over certain important aspects of policy. The EEC itself came into being as a result of the Treaty of Rome which was signed at 6.30 pm on March 25, 1957 in Rome. The EEC came into existence at 00.00 hours on January 1, 1958. The major move towards political union took place under the terms of the first major renegotiation of the Treaty of Rome, resulting in the Treaty of Maastricht. The treaty was agreed at about 1.00 am on December 11, 1991 in Maastricht and signed at about 5.30 pm GMT, February 7, 1992. The Treaty was ratified “a few minutes after three o’clock” in the afternoon on August 2, 1993, came into effect, under the terms of the Single European Act, at 00.00 hours, on January 1, 1993 (11.00 pm GMT, December 31, 1992), Brussels. The chart for the EU is set for the formal an constitutional inauguration of the Union, 00.00 hours, November 1, 1993, Bruxells, Belgium. The members of the EEC/EU and the dates when they joined are;
Belgium, France, Italy, Luxembourg, Netherlands, West Germany all on January 1, 1958; Denmark, Eire, United Kingdom on January 1, 1973; Greece on January 1, 1981; Portugal, Spain on January 1, 1986; East Germany on October 3, 1990; and Austria, Finland and Sweden on January 1, 1995. The most substantial enlargement in the EU took place on May 1, 2004. The following countries joined like Cyprus, the Czech Republic, Estonia, Hungary, Latvia, Lithuania, Malta, Poland, Slovakia and Slovenia. The celebrations were held at each capital city at midnight. The single official ceremony took place in Dublin. The EURO, the single currency, assumed a legal existence at 00.01 hours on January 1, 1999.
The following is the tropical chart for EU.
You all are aware of the developments on June 23, 2016 where there was a referendum by the UK whether Britain should exit EU or not. The polling was conducted across 382 location in UK at 7.00 am and ended at 10.00 pm. The counting began at 7.00 on June 24, 2016 and results were announced that the polling was in favour of Britain’s Exit from the EU. This event shook all the markets around the world. The exit of Britain, I would is just a beginning of break-up of EU. There are many corporates in the world which has tremendous exposure in Euros and these companies are very vulnerable in the future. Let us see, what are the future ramifications of Britain’s exit from EU.
From astrological point of view, the main houses that gets impacted in such an event. These are the ascendant, ascendant lord, planets in the ascendant, 10th house (meridian cusp), 10th lord and planets in the 10th house. The 10th house is the governing body and ascendant is the EU itself. Further, in any chart Moon should be free from affliction by malefic.
In the chart given the ascendant rising is 17 deg 27 of Leo. Moon is in the 10th house (at 24 deg 20, Taurus) under multiple affliction from Mars (24 deg 07, Scorpio) in opposition, Square to Saturn (at 23 deg 39, Aquarius) from the 7th house (of allies, in this case Britain or any other member) and opposition to Pluto (at 24 deg 46, Scorpio) in Scorpio.
The ascendant at 17 deg 27 at Leo is under severe affliction from Neptune (18 deg 39, Capricorn) in Quincuncx and Herschel (at 18 deg 43, Capricorn) also in Quincuncx. The ascendant lord Sun (8 deg 32, Scorpio) is in opposition to 10th house cusp at 02 deg 01, Taurus. This opposition means, the members (represented by the ascendant) will oppose the governing body (10th cusp).
The 10th house at 02 deg 01 of Taurus, whose lord is Venus is also under severe affliction by, Herschel (at 18 deg 43, Capricorn) is square, Neptune (at 18 deg 39, Capricorn) is also square and Rahu/North node (at 4 deg 20, Sagittarius) is semi-square.
The above are the promises that are depicted in the formation chart of EU. Now that question is when will the above malefic configurations come into effect. The malefic configurations are Conjunction with malefic, Semi-square (45 deg), Square (90 deg), Sesquiquadrate (135 deg), Quincunx (150 deg) and Opposition (180 deg). Configurations are geometrical distance in degrees between any two planets. It could be between natal to natal, progressed to natal or transit to natal. The answer is, this will come into effect when the progressed planets (I don’t want to explain what is progression here as you are supposed to know and if you do not know, please get to know it) forms similar malefic configurations to natal positions (like ascendant, ascendant lord, planets in the ascendant, 10th house, 10th lord and planets in the 10th house). Simultaneously, the transit planets (i.e: as on June 23, 2016) also form malefic configurations to natal positions (like ascendant, ascendant lord, planets in the ascendant, 10th house, 10th lord and planets in the 10th house).
In the above chart, the natal ascendant at 17 deg 27 at Leo is afflicted by the progressed 10th lord Venus (at 18 deg 12, Scorpio). This means that actions of the governing body will not be welcomed by the members. The natal ascendant is also quincunx to Neptune at 19 deg 10, Capricorn and also Herschel at 19 deg 33, Capricorn.
The progressed Moon is at critical degree at 29 deg 01, Pisces in the 8th house. Whenever, progressed Moon is in the 6th, 8th or 12th house it plays havoc in any chart.
The natal Venus (lord of 10th house) is afflicted by progressed Herschel and Neptune by being square.
The natal 10th house is afflicted by Rahu/North node at 03 deg 08 Sagittarius in 4t house by being quincunx. The 4th house is the house of opposition members. The natal 10th house is also in opposition to Jupiter in 4th house at 02 deg 46 Scorpio.
The natal Venus (the 10th lord) is in square to retrograde Pluto in 5th house in 16 deg 33 Capricorn; Opposition to Herschel in 9th house at 24 deg 00 in Aries.
The 10th cusp is sesquiquadrate to Rahu/North node in 2nd house in 16 deg 21 in Virgo; is also sesquiquadrate to Jupiter (lord of 8th house of obstacles, sudden developments, etc.) in 2nd house in 16 deg 10 in Virgo and semi-square to Mercury in 11th house (friends, in this case friendly relations amongst members) lord of 2nd house (family, in this case members of family) and 11th house. Mercury is at 17 deg 55 Gemini.
The natal ascendant at 17 deg 27 Leo is quincunx to Pluto in 5th house at 16 deg 33 Capricorn. Pluto denotes end of everything and destruction. Pluto is lord of 4th house which is a terminal house.
Aspects formed in 2017 between Progressed/Transit to Natal
What are the future ramifications.
In end of November to December 2016 or in 2017, the transit retrograde Pluto (it will turn retrograde in transit in April 2017) will be at 16 to 17 deg of Capricorn. This will form a quincunx to natal ascendant which is at 17 deg 27 Leo. This time even the progressed planets like Neptune and Herschel will also make semi-square to natal ascendant. During this period the natal Venus will also be under severe affliction by transit retrograde Pluto square in Capricorn (at 17 deg) and transit Herschel Opposition in Aries at 20 deg. Further, during November to December 2016 Rahu/North node will be conjunct the natal ascendant at 17 deg 27 Leo.
In the above period (i.e: end of November to December 2016 or in 2017) you can expect some more members calling for referendum and exiting EU.
