Hermes, Aphrodite and Eros

In *Stars on Sunday* this weekend

Dominic Cummings

Going to press, here is a remarkable showing of the current Mercury-Venus conjunction

noon chart

Dominic Cummings, no longer a Downing Street adviser, is willing to spill the beans this weekend about Boris Johnson and past government strategy. We will check out the astrology of this saga, especially in the light of the critical Mercury-Venus of Sunday night.

Saturn-Uranus & Bitcoin

for London

The slow forming Saturn-Uranus square, made as Mercury comes close to its station, takes place in the week before the UK lockdown is due to be revised and new rules are announced. Neptune strong with malefic Mars separating by sextile looks good for the UK’s mass vaccination roll-out. However, the Moon falls closely on Uranus – a populace discovering its libertarian streak and seeking independence, quite a challenge for Saturn to restrain further.  On this note, ministerial advice for people not to plan for summer holidays goes down like a lead balloon with Asc. ruler Mercury in the 5th yearning to escape Saturn and head for Jupiter. Planets in the 5th house of speculation aspecting Uranus in Taurus also throw a spotlight onto market and economic instability. Note that when Saturn and Uranus were last in opposition, Bitcoin was launched. Watch its progress – or otherwise – on this square.
