The Nick Clegg Phenomena…the horoscope of the UK

Exciting times in UK politics. Just as the Conservative leader, David Cameron, looked fit to snatch the Crown from Gordon Brown, a relative new-comer, Nick Clegg, seems to be turning Cameron’s dream into a nightmare. It’s no longer David Cameron who is  the undisputed champion of change, but the Liberal Democrat, Nick Clegg.  It must be said however, that here on blogo we did have our reservations about David Cameron’s chances of winning the election, however, Nick Clegg is a phenomena that has set the UK electoral ball well and truly on the roll. The horoscope of Nick Clegg (Jan 7th, 1967, time unknown, Chalfont St. Giles, UK):


Nick Clegg really is different from the rest. He has a half Russian father, a Dutch mother, and a Spanish wife, he speaks five languages, and is in every respect the epitomy of the new world citizen. Some British newspapers – in an attempt to halt the Clegg phenomena – have questioned if we can even call Nick Clegg British!! HUMBUG!! With Clegg’s meteoric rise in popularity since the first live leaders debate last week, a smear campaign, dirty politics, seems increasingly more likely. Clegg was born under the Uranus/Pluto conjunction in Virgo in opposition with Saturn in Pisces. You just hope – that he has no skeletons in the cupboard- cos this planetary cocktail is known to cause shake-ups.  Pluto is in Nick Clegg’s sun sign Capricorn – and this adds weight to his campaign. Pluto rules treasures from the deep – and Clegg seems groomed to take on responsiblity- he is dealing with his overnight success admirably. Certainly the combination, Sun, Pluto, Capricorn – does not suffer from a lack of ambition. Clegg’s Capricorn’s ruler, Saturn makes a natal trine to Neptune, this man has vision that we wants to bring down to earth. All this one side, truth is, to have any chance of high office, there must be some considerable synastry between the aspiring leader and the country itself. So does the horoscope of Nick Clegg have sufficient resonance with the UK horoscope to give him a real chance of being the new PM? The horoscope of the UK: (Jan 1, 1801, 00.00, Westminster, England):



With its Capricorn Sun, the UK and Nick Clegg clearly have a lot in common. Both are inherently serious, work and responsibility matter most. The coming years, the UK Sun will fall increasingly under the sway of the planet Pluto, which translates as the deep desire for real fundamental change to the entire system. A break down of the UK as we know it – with central government in Westminster making decisions for the whole country – has definitly had its longest day. However, Saturn square Neptune in the UK chart, suggests a certain fear of the unknown, and also the susceptibility for scares. From time to time, the normally rational British psyche is taken over by the irrational. Fear then rules supreme. I was visiting the UK during the last Saturn/Neptune opposition in 2006. During this time the liquid bombs on plane scare gripped the country. It was totally over the top. Nick Clegg has a trine between the same two planets. In terms of this current political campaigna, serious smear and scare tactics – could create a spectre of Nick Clegg – that would potray him as Britain’s biggest liability as opposed to a possible huge asset. I wonder if the great mass of the British people will be able to see through the Neptunian smog!! Add to this the fixed elements in the UK horoscope , then it becomes clear that change in the UK will be met by dogged resistance from certain quarters.

What interests me the most however, is that Nick Clegg has his Jupiter in the same degree as Jupiter in the UK horoscope. Interesting because Jupiter is in the UK’s 10th house, the house of governement. Here we have the image of a young lion king. This fact becomes extra exciting in view of what Bernadette Brady pointed out in a recent lecture at Soesterberg. During the UK elections and from the perspective of ancient Babylonian astrology, Jupiter is very prominent in the sky, and favours the young contender. Bernadette Brady saw this as a clear indication that Gordon Brown could not win this election. At the time I found this hard to accept – since I never had David Cameron down as the winner. But that was before the Live Debate between the leaders last week, which changed the political landscape. So, who am I voting for. I’ll let you guess that one for yourselves…..
