CAPRICORN BRITAIN: THE PLUTO-MOON TRANSIT AND BREXIT (long read)
I was going to wait until the next newsletter on Capricorn before posting this piece on Britain. But it is worth sending out now, due to the Brexit crisis, to raise greater awareness of what is going and to generate more subjective support.
|
“The causes of Brexit have been misdiagnosed. There was much in the way of dog whistle politics by the Leave camp which played on people’s fears, which is always a surefire way to sway many within a populace, the American version being ‘God, guts and guns’. There were also scare tactics on the Remain side. The main points that were constantly harped upon by the Leave camp were sovereignty, immigration, money that had to be paid to the EU and stifling EU regulations, with an uglier undertone of racism.
|
… neither side addressed the larger issue involved, which had nothing to do with Brussels, other than the fact that Brussels embraces the same sorts of fiscal policies under which the Greeks are currently existing. Behind the issues cited by the Leave camp was one fairly clear issue - the desire to be free of regulations for business concerns - and for business to have more control over domestic policies and politics. If this seems cynical, look at who spearheaded the Leave campaign and follow the money.
|
Brexit was also a good example of what happens if people on the side of unity are complacent and/or ineffectual. Most people expected Britain to remain, which was part of the complacency. But there are also officials on the Remain side that feed from the trough of the EU.” (https://malvinartley.com/subscribers/libra_2018.pdf

The events unfolding in Britain around Brexit at the moment are extremely important and will have ramifications not only for Europe, but the entire world. Britain’s horoscope is the 1801 Union with Capricorn sun, Libra rising and a Cancer moon. Esoterically most nations have different horoscopes, for instance Britain’ esoteric horoscope is Gemini rising with a Taurus sun. Nevertheless, the exoteric charts “work” very well, when transits and progressions are considered in light of national events. Also, the exoteric and esoteric horoscopes have interaction with one another.
|
One such event currently is Brexit and the transit of Pluto to Britain’s Cancer moon. The moon represents the unconscious, the shadow, where we become stuck, what gets us into the most conflict with others. Cancer represents the mother, home, family, tradition. 
|
Apart from its psychic sensitivity, a Cancer moon can be particularly attached to the past; and combined with a Capricorn sun, will have issues around money, resources and territory - a sense of lack that can generate an over-compensating greed; an imposed economic austerity (neo-liberalism) that over-rides goodwill and compassion. When these traits are compared to similarities of Britain’s materialistic Taurus personality, then the themes are magnified.
|
Transiting Pluto the Destroyer was moving into an opposition with the Britain’s Cancer moon at the Brexit vote in June 2016 - and was exactly opposing the moon soon after in early 2017. Often Pluto transits can be felt several degrees applying and Brexit was no exception. Pluto makes its final exact opposition now, in early December, but will remain closely in orb for most of 2019.
|
Britain’s horoscope is “under siege” from the destroying/regenerating forces of Pluto. Because of the transit of Pluto to the moon, Britain has been facing its shadow and going through an intense transformation – hence the chaos and tension around the Brexit decision. 
|
Esoterically considered, London (the location of Westminster/parliament) has a Libra personality synchronising with Libra rising in the 1801 horoscope - currently with a Pluto solar arc to it.
|One of the main themes of Libra is the Law - and making decisions about laws by the careful balancing of the judicial mind. This capacity for decisiveness and clarity has been somewhat thwarted due to the Neptune transit discussed below.
|
Perhaps Britain’s loss of its former imperialist glory has prompted it to withdraw from the European Union in a vain attempt to grasp back something of the past; or its financial insecurity, mistrust fo the EU or plain old greed. The moon in Cancer is the most elevated body in the chart, giving it great power - reflecting an emotionally susceptible public – the kind of emotions that are easily swayed, despite the inherent pragmatism of the British people. The Cancer moon is also trine to Neptune, the planet of idealism and vision – the ruler of the emotional body and the esoteric ruler of Cancer.
|
Pluto in Capricorn represents subterranean forces and powerful people; they were certainly present before the Brexit vote in the form of a small cabal of super wealthy businessmen and members of parliament who put their selfish interests ahead of the nation’s greater good. And in so doing, these individuals have undermined and disrupted the nation, Europe and the world. Fellow astrologer and co-worker, Malvin Artley clarifies:
|
“Brexit had been planned for years by a group centered on 55 Tufton St. in London. That group has connections with the neocons in the US. It was a group cobbled together from billionaires, business interests, hard right conservatives … that also employed data mining, spying … to put forward the campaign. Does any of that sound familiar to readers in the US?
|
Cambridge Analytica was involved. Tufton Street is just around the river’s bend from the City of London, the latter being the seat of London’s banking industry and management of the UK’s secrecy districts. The motto most frequently parroted as the catch phrase for the Leave camp was “Take back control”. It was a vague and misleading message, as such campaign slogans often are. We might well ask, take back control from whom? The answer to that question is central to the purpose behind Brexit.
|
The real purpose behind Brexit was “...to deliver a low tax, small state, deregulated economy that will have a detrimental effect on the lives of the very UK citizens they coerced into believing they were voting Leave for reasons other than to negatively impact the NHS, public services, schools and the day to day lives of the vast majority of the people of the UK.” (see Tufton St. article, linked) 
|
If this also sounds familiar to US readers, it is because some of the people involved in Brexit were the same people involved in the Trump campaign. On the other side, staying in the EU as it is currently will change nothing and enable the ‘liberal’ elites to continue as they are, to the further detriment of the British public. 
|
The people who would most benefit from Brexit are the billionaire class and those people with enough savvy to game the financial system as it exists. It won’t be the average UK citizen. If we wanted any further confirmation that US interests are also involved, then we need look no further than Trump’s statement when he was in the UK that there would be no free trade deal with the US without a hard Brexit.” (https://malvinartley.com/subscribers/libra_2018.pdf)

Hence, the British public was duped by these moneyed interests, with the assistance of a well financed media propaganda campaign, as recently revealed. And now the parliament is in complete disarray as politicians struggle to deal with the problem. The deception of the British was a triumph of modern propaganda; it occurred through the negative effects of subterannean Pluto, plus the emotionally vulnerable Cancer moon that was activated by transiting Pluto. And Neptune.
|
Neptune transit. One of the main transits regarding this public deception in Britain’s horoscope was from Neptune, esoteric ruler of Britain’s Cancer moon. Transiting Neptune has been approaching a square to Britain’s idealistic and intuitive Mercury in Sagittarius since early 2018. The lower mass effect of Neptune has been creating confusion and deception in the nation’s thought processes (Mercury); it essentially created a misplaced idealism, but also a deliberate hoax by the aforementioned parties. This transit will progress to exact aspects by April and September 2019, with the final hit in February 2020; however, it will remain “in orb” of influence through all of 2020. . To further highlight Mercury’s position, the Sagittarius new moon on December 7, fell very close to it.
|
Hence, the same negative effects of this transit will still stay in play, but there is also the potential of newer, higher ideals precipitating through the tension of Neptune squaring Mercury in Sagittarius - that could point Britain in a new direction. 
Saturn transit. Saturn has been transiting over Britain’s sun - on and off for all of 2018. 
|
This is a cycle that only occurs every thirty years - where the weight of responsibility falls heavily, plus a tendency to focus on fiscal, rather than philosophy and first principles; this transit is also why Britain is “stuck”. The last pass of Saturn over Britain’s sun occurs in the last week of December 2018 and may relieve some pressure as the new year appears on the horizon. Of note also, is that Australia has the sun in Capricorn at the same degree (1-1-1901) - with a similar government in power and similar fiscal policies. (Actually, “appalling” might be a better description!)
|
Britain’s Capricorn sun is placed in the fourth house of home and family, emphasing the fourth sign Cancer moon and its tendency to isolation. The esoteric keynote for Cancer on the “ordinary wheel” is: “Let isolation be the rule and yet the crowd exists.” This perfectly sums up the regressive tendency of a Brexit vote – notwithstanding any good reasons for Leave. The esoteric keynote on the reversed wheel is, “I build a lighted house and therein dwell” – in the EU? The following passage may well be applied to Britain’s current predicament:
|
“Is the house you are building yet lit? Is it a lighted house, or is it a dark prison? If it is a lighted house, you will attract to its light and warmth all who are around you and the magnetic pull of your soul, whose nature is light and love, will save many. If you are still an isolated soul, you will have to pass through the horrors of a more complete isolation and loneliness, treading alone the dark way of the soul. Yet this isolation, this loneliness and this separation in the dark night are all part of the Great Illusion.”
