When analysing a chart, it is always useful to consider midpoints. Here are the midpoints of Trump’s natal chart. Posting for Astrologers to use when considering transits and progressions to Trump’s chart to check if a midpoint is being activated.

Meghan, Duchess of Sussex – relocated birth chart to London.


Megans chart Meghan, Duchess of Sussex relocation chart London

Relocated charts have a place in astrology. Whether you place more importance on your natal chart drawn up for your birth location, or follow your relocated chart, it is generally considered to use both when considering full interpretations. This is especially true when the person relocates “permanently” or for lengthy periods.

In any case, looking at your relocated chart when you change your residence, especially by great distances is worth doing, as the planets fall into different houses, thus changing the vibration of the natal chart.

Of course all your planetary positions and their aspects stay the same, but importantly your angles, the Ascendant, Descendant, IC and Midheaven change. These angles and the new aspects they make are considered very important, as angles bring in the energy from the outside world and these energies are felt, especially if hit up by transits.

The most notable change we see in the relocated chart, is her Leo Sun changing from her first house of self, to her 10th house of status. Wow, yes without a doubt her status has changed, she is now the Duchess of Sussex! The sign of Leo is always associated with Royalty and now she is married to a British Royal Prince, the Duke of Sussex.

This movement of the Sun is followed by her natal Mercury also in Leo, and in London is conjunct the apex of the chart the most prominent point of any chart, denoting worldly status, worldly recognition.

Her ideas (Mercury) and her radiance (Sun) have now been elevated to the highest platform from which she can project her ideas. There is no better position than this for the Royals to use their privileged position in society, to disseminate their ideas and make an impact on the world.

As both the Sun and Mercury make a positive aspect to the Moon, Saturn and Jupiter all in the sign of Libra (partnerships) it goes without saying that she will team up with the Duke and both will be a powerful force in humanitarian causes (11th house).

Her relocated Venus in Virgo also now falls in the 11th house, and positively aspected to her Mars in Cancer in the 9th house.  Her hopes and wishes (11th house) will be fulfilled by the man (Mars) in her life, born in a foreign country (9th house). Together they will get passionately (Venus/Mars) involved in humanitarian (11th) issues and disseminate these globally (9th). With her Venus in Virgo and Mars in Cancer – I would assume issues such as the environment, animals, climate change, health (Virgo), as well as issues surrounding women and children (Cancer) will all be on the agenda.

Also of great note is her North Node in the Royal sign of Leo, now also positioned in this 9th house of grand visions, justice, foreign cultures. The north node usually suggests Karma in a chart, the point in the chart where you have to fulfil your life’s journey.

So she has fulfilled her life karma by marrying into Royalty (Leo) and has been given the opportunity to use her elevated position to globally influence the world with her/their visions (9th house).

Secondary Progressions and Solar Arc Directions to Donald Trump’s natal chart from May – Dec 2018.


Many astrologers are talking about how Trump is entering into a very lucky period with his progressed (p) Venus meeting his natal (n) Jupiter Retrograde (R) at 17’27 deg Libra in his 2nd house.

This hit will be in effect before 1 May 2018 – and beyond 1 Jan 2019, strongest around 14 June 2018 (yes his birthday) and denotes, other than love and marriage, becoming popular, film star mannerisms.

Taking a closer look at his chart, his natal Jupiter R, is actually midpoint his natal Sun and Pluto, (pursuit of happiness and fortune).

However, Trump’s n Pluto is mid-point his Saturn and Mars, denoting brutality, rage and fury of destruction.

So during this lucky p Venus, n Jupiter meet up, we also have p Venus midpoint n Sun and Sat/Mar midpoint and n Jupiter midpoint Sun and the Sat/Mars midpoint.

Trump's progressions 2018


The Saturn/Mars midpoint (harmful or destructive energy) will certainly place a dampener on any benefits gained from the lucky Venus/Jupiter conjunction.

As Jupiter has always been midpoint Sun/Pluto and consequently the Saturn/Mars midpoint in his chart, it highlights how his successes have often turned into bankruptcies.

Also note how his solar arc or directed (sa) ascendant is coming to square his natal Pluto. This hit comes into orb on 5 September 2018 – and goes beyond 1 Jan 2019. This hit by square will be the first in his lifetime when his person (ascendant) meets up with the restrictive saturn/mars (advancement difficult, obstacles caused by other people, illness, separation, mourning). He had a sextile by  sa ascendant to his natal Pluto and Sat/Mars midpoint in his early 40’s, but now at age 72 the square has formed


Brief comments on other secondary progressions and solar arc directions.


Before 1 May 2018 – Beyond 1 Jan 2019, Progressed Mars is Sextile Natal Pluto

Progressed Mars in Libra, 2nd house, making positive aspect to Natal Pluto in 12th house, which is always midpoint Sat/Mars. He will make a huge effort to cover up his past shady dealings.

Before 1 May 2018 – 11 June 2018, Directed Pluto is Trine Natal Uranus

Directed Pluto in Libra, 2nd house, making positive aspect to natal Uranus in 10th house. This is ending on 11th June, will his impact on the office of President and the changes he has made taper off now…

Before 1 May 2018 – Beyond 1 Jan 2019, strongest around 8 May 2018, Directed Moon is in Opposition to Natal Ascendant

His affairs with women and difficulties with women and his wife will generate more conflict, disagreement.

Before 1 May 2018 – Beyond 1 Jan 2019, strongest around 14 June 2018, Progressed Venus is Conjunct Natal Jupiter

See comments above.

Before 1 May 2018 – Beyond 1 Jan 2019, strongest around 23 June 2018, Directed Uranus is Conjunct Natal Mars

This one is huge, sudden revelations will continue to pour out regarding his hidden (12th house) dealings. He will continue to shock and create disruption and always be highly agitated. Uranus/Mars combinations are also indicative of car accidents and other accidents in general.

Before 1 May 2018 – Beyond 1 Jan 2019, strongest around 27 June 2018, Directed Ascendant is Trine Natal Mercury

He will continue to use social media to get his message across…His sa ascendant is now as 8-9 deg Scorpio in his 3rd house of communication…His approach (ascendant) is do or die (Scorpio) or on the war path to achieve his nationalistic aspirations ( n Mercury in Cancer in 11th house). 

Before 1 May 2018 – Beyond 1 Jan 2019, strongest around 19 August 2018, Directed Mercury is Square Natal Uranus

He will continue to do his duty (sa Mercury in Virgo) in implementing/communicating  his shocking  (Uranus) ideas  to his base, but he might hit a snag, as the square denotes difficulties.

Before 1 May 2018 – Beyond 1 Jan 2019, strongest around 6 October 2018, Directed Moon’s North Node is Conjunct Natal Ascendant

The formation of an important personal connection. He will probably meet up with Kim Jong-un. Note: 24th May 2018 – Meeting with Kim Jong-Un cancelled. As his natal Part of Fortune, opposes his ascendant 28 Aq, and his sa Moon also now at 0 deg Pisces opposes his sa North Node and natal Ascendant, this meeting was called off…

Before 1 May 2018 – Beyond 1 Jan 2019, strongest around 16 November 2018, Progressed Venus is Trine Natal Uranus

This one is very interesting as it ties in with the p Venus/n Jupiter R conjunction.

Natally his Uranus makes a Saturn/Pluto, Mars/Neptune midpoint aspect which makes fulfilling the promise of this trine difficult. However, his natal Jupiter/Uranus trine, has always got him out of trouble, as it is the “Thank the Lord” aspect.  With the lessening of the p Venus/ n Jupiter R conjunction due to the Saturn/Mars midpoint, combined with the sa Asc to Pluto which also has the Saturn/Mars midpoint aspect, we can only speculate how his “lucky aspects” will turn out. Perhaps this time, not as expected.

Before 1 May 2018 – Beyond 1 Jan 2019, strongest around 7 December 2018, Directed Jupiter is Trine Natal Mars

This is a lucky aspect, and his sa Jupiter falls in his 4th house of family, trining his Mars in 12th. If all goes belly up, he could negotiate a good deal for him and his family… In any case he will continue to benefit his family business..

5 September 2018 – Beyond 1 Jan 2019, Directed Ascendant is Square your Natal Pluto

See above

15 September 2018 – Beyond 1 Jan 2019, Directed Venus is Conjunct Natal R Neptune

He will continue to cover up his foreign/political business ties…His natal Neptune R in Libra makes many midpoints in his chart, one stands out, Neptune midpoint Sun/Jupiter, which is the signature of “the crook”.  At present we are witnessing how his past ties with the shady world are coming to the fore. More to come here, as the many midpoints his retrograde natal Neptune makes are too numerous to mention at this point. His natal Neptune R only makes 1 aspect in his natal chart, a separating square to Mercury. With sa Venus coming up to conjunct his natal Neptune – disillusionment will reign.


As mentioned before in my posts on Trump’s chart, his Pluto midpoint Saturn/Mars is the most difficult in the chart. Now at age 72 his ascendant will square this midpoint, and create some very challenging times for him, given his natal Pluto is in his 12th house of “self-undoing”, secretive dealings and in mundane astrology, hidden enemies. 

Given he has other “benign” aspects by secondary progression and solar arc, how will these counteract his other “malefic” aspects? To my mind the saying “count your losses and run” would now be the wisest course of action. 

Donald Trump’s chart – activation by Pluto, Nov 2017.


Donald Trump has been very busy on Twitter these last few days attracting national and international condemnation.

Today, 30th Nov 2017, we read his latest Tweets where he retweets far right videos which peddle lies and stoke tensions. His Tweet on Matt Lauer who lost his job over sexual harassment allegations, also bringing up accusations against Joe Scarborough, and his tweet insulting the Navajo veterans with his “Pocahontas” joke. He also revived his Obama birther conspiracy and claimed the Access Hollywood tape as fake, as well as numerous outbursts claiming the media as “fake news”.

Just what is going on in his chart? Below is the quad dial, which quickly shows up the 8th harmonic aspects, conjunctions, squares, etc., in other words it tells you where the action is.

Before going into the details, one has to point out that his natal planet Pluto in Leo, makes a very difficult midpoint in his chart, namely Saturn midpoint Mars in his 12th house.

Ebertin describes this Pluto=Sat/Mars, as “Brutality, the rage of fury or destruction…“. (Ebertin continues, but it is too dire to write.) Astrology House gives a more modern interpretation of this midpoint, “Demonstrating the will and intent to meet specific challenges; to completely master and overcome an arduous situation. Defiance; refusing to back down or give in under pressure. Build ups of stress and aggression which are prone to periodic and powerful release. The activation of survival instincts. An awareness of the destructive forces of ‘man and nature’. Harmful elements. Collective loss and anguish.”

Remember this midpoint is constantly in his chart, and this modern interpretation very accurately describes Trump’s hidden urges, as his Pluto is in the 12th house of “self-undoing.”

His natal Pluto also makes a Venus/Mars midpoint, “A deeply passionate and sensual nature. Charisma. Sexual magnetism. Obsessing about someone – or something. Fanaticism. Compulsive urges; giving in to temptation.


Donald Trump quad wheel 1 30 Nov 2017

The Quad dial shows his natal (N) chart as the inner chart, then moving out, his solar arc (SA) progressions, secondary progressions (SP)as 3rd wheel and the outer wheel are the daily transits (T).

Starting with his natal Jupiter R in Libra, it is conjunct SA Pluto, the planet which makes the Sat/Mars midpoint and according to Ebertin, Jupiter=Sat/Mars, “The ability to destroy or eliminate something thoroughly”. This point in his chart is also squared by T Pluto and for a short time opposed by T Moon. The combination of these planets, given that Pluto is in his 12th house, is a powerful release of all his survival instincts to counteract his feared loss of power, or his guilty conscious working to the max in regard to his secret sex life…(Pluto also midpoint Mars/Venus) and other business dealings Sat/Mars.

Note: His N Jupiter R is very important in his chart, as it trines his N Uranus in the 10th which opposes his Moon, which sextiles N Jupiter. It forms the major aspect responsible for his business success/advancement/ status.

Moving on to his natal Saturn/Venus in Cancer. SP Jupiter is midpointing his natal Saturn/Venus and both of these planets are aspected by T Mars and T Uranus. His love life is in a big mess, perhaps he has broken up with his latest fling. (I am assuming here that his marriage is now one of convenience only…)

Moving on to his natal Pluto=Sat/Mars and Venus/Mars, it is being squared by T Jupiter from his 3rd house, activating Social Media (3rd house) to express his frustrations and anger… again stirred up by his deep hidden secrets of his 12th house…

The transiting Sat/Mars on 30th Nov, will activate his MC, so he is finding it necessary to endure overcoming difficulties. With this aspect, he may find he makes little progress. Saturn/Mars is usually interpreted as “one step forward and 2 backwards…”.

The major aspect is the transiting Pluto in Capricorn activating his natal Jupiter R, as well as the SA Pluto to his Jupiter, the first aspect mentioned above. This has been going on all year, as T Pluto has hovered around the 17 deg off and on, but should move off after Christmas although there is a brief retrograde period of Pluto on 18 deg (still within orb) in September-November 2018.

The world is feeling the tension and frustration projected by this President…something has to give before or shortly after Christmas, and again in late 2018.  If not we have to wait until 2020 when Pluto has moved to square his Natal Saturn.

Just one word of warning, don’t be in too much of a hurry to make radical changes to your life – be guided by your intuition first and foremost.

Her Neptune is in his 11th House

Megans chart

 Harry’s Planets in Megan’s Houses

His Sun is in her 3rd House

Communication is vital to this relationship. Harry encourages you to speak your mind and you will probably have many heart to heart discussions with each other. He may tend to initiate or dominate conversations. After all, he likes to be at the centre of attention. One of the best ways to keep things stimulating between you is to have the occasional short trip away together.

His Moon is in her 11th House

Here is someone who you can get close to and call a friend. He instinctively tunes into your needs and enjoys spending time with you. Quite possibly, you met each other in a social setting or through a mutual friend. He readily supports your ambitions and goals in life.

His Mercury is in her  2nd House

You and Harry talk a lot about financial and business matters. No doubt, he has many ideas on how you can spend or invest your money; just make sure that you are confident he knows what he’s talking about. If you do trust his abilities he can help you make good financial decisions.

His Venus is in her 4th House

Intimate candlelight dinners at home can be a real pleasure for you both. You enjoy being at home and are at your happiest when you’re involved in beautifying or improving the value of your property. Building a nest together is important to you.

His Mars is in her 5th House

Here is someone who you can be adventurous with in love. He knows how to push your romantic buttons – and let’s be honest – turn you on. You feel alive when you are together. Often, all you want to do is have fun and play. This is one love affair that will make an impact on you. However, be warned, there is the potential for being scarred if things go wrong – and they can.

His Jupiter is in her 6th House

He has a beneficial influence on your experience of work; he could even be your teacher in some kind of specialised field. You look after each other’s health needs and strive to live a healthy and happy life. You recognise the importance and benefits of a good diet and physical exercise.

His Saturn is in her 4th House

Living together in harmony might not be the easiest state to achieve. He tends to throw his weight around on the home front. He feels that he has to control or take charge of situations, even when it’s not wanted or required. His relationship with your family might not be all that it could be.

His Uranus is in her 5th House

There’s a good chance that your attraction to Harry took you by surprise and came upon you quite suddenly. You looked up one day and there he was. This is one of those ‘love at first sight’ affairs that tend to start and end quite abruptly. The key to your relationship is to live for the moment and enjoy the now.

His Neptune is in her 6th House

Your work may be a complete mystery to him. He might pretend to know what it is you do or appreciate its importance to you. There’s probably little point in trying to explain it to him though because it is not part of his reality. He may also have some difficulty understanding the attraction some people have to holistic healing practices.

His Pluto is in her 4th House

You can’t help but feel Harry’s presence in your domestic environment. If you live together – or even if you don’t – he manages to exercise a controlling influence around the home. Your family may find him a bit hard to take, as they see him as dominating and controlling.

His Moon’s North Node is in her 11th House

Through his ideas and actions he teaches you the value of friendship and social interaction.

His Ascendant is in her 6th House

Here is someone who has a correct grasp of what you’re trying to get done in life and he has just the right skills you’re looking for. He is always ready to lend a hand.

His Midheaven is in her 4th House

He has similar domestic goals as you. He understands how important home and family-life are to you.

Harrys chart

Summary: Overall seems harmonious and relates very much to how they came together.  They love each other, and have common interests, and share a love of home and family life. Harry a Virgoan, will appreciate the intellectual/communication side of the relationship, and Meghan, a Leo will appreciate the limelight she attracts through the Royal connection. His Saturn in her 4th house, highlights the obvious adjustments she must make in dealing with the Royal family and traditions. Meghan has a Saturn/Jupiter conjunction in Libra, which falls in Harry’s 8th house. They will have to be circumspect about their joint finances, but as Saturn is exalted in Libra, they should be able to compromise.

Mercury (the trickster) planet in Trump’s natal chart.


Mercury, the trickster planet plays a huge influence in Trump’s natal chart.

His Gemini Sun conjunct Uranus opposes his Sagittarius Moon. The ruler of his Moon sign, Jupiter forms a sextile with the Moon and Jupiter also trines his Sun/Uranus conjunction. His Sun also forms a trine with his Part of Fortune in Aquarius. His Moon also trines Mars which in turn sextiles his Sun.Without a doubt he has used this pattern to his advantage and gained wealth and now power.

The ruler of his Gemini Sun and Uranus is Mercury. Mercury is in the sign of Cancer, the ruler being the Moon which opposes his Sun/Uranus. So the trickster planet Mercury plays a role in his Sun/Moon opposition which activates the success/wealth, power pattern outlined above. Note also that the Gemini Sun is in his 10th house of integrity. The moon in his 4th house suggests to me that this trickster pattern is in his ancestry, which is revealed when looking at his Father’s and Grandfather’s business lives/patterns.

Let’s look closer at his Mercury aspects.

(Interpretations taken from Ebertin, The Combination of Stellar Influences. They are mostly negative due to the mostly hard aspects involved.)

Mercury square Neptune – tendency to tell lies, untruthful, wrong thinking, confused ideas.

Mercury semi-square Mars – rashness, exaggeration, quarrelling.

Mercury semi-sextile Pluto – over estimation of self, impatience, slyness and cunning. 

Mercury square Chiron – “I did it my way, that is their theme song.” Yes,not kidding taken from Zane B. Stein, Essence and Application A View from Chiron. p 43. (Trump and his wife danced to this tune at his inaugural ball.)

 Mercury semi-square MC- ego conscious acting.

Pluto in Leo, ruler Sun in Gemini ruled by Mercury (another tie in with the Sun/Moon opposition) and Mars in Leo – again connection to the Gemini Sun, are in the 12th house.

With Mercury’s aspects to both of these 12th house planets, it is without a doubt that deals will be done in back rooms or in secret. The 12th house is also associated with crime and is ruled by the Sun – again involving the Sun/Moon opposition.

As Mercury is in his 11th house natally, he likes “doing deals” with friends behind “closed doors”, or in “secret”, (12th house), not to mention “shady characters” which are associated with this house.

If he has overstepped the legal line in the past, he has gotten away with it – something his natal chart suggests, considering the trine aspects of Jupiter to Sun and Uranus and Moon sextile to Jupiter.

But he is no longer a shady businessman, he is the President. The norms have changed.

But can he change the Mercurial influence in his chart?


Negotiate with others to achieve results – Ingress chart into Libra 2014



This explanation of the Libra Ingress chart 2014, Canberra, Australia is based on the strictures of William Ramsey taken from his work, Astrologia  Munda: A 17th Century study in the Ancient Art of Mundane Astrology, edited and annotated by Steven Birchfield A.M.A, 2006.

When the word King is used, it denotes those in authority which in our case is the Prime Minister, Mr Tony Abbott
Ingress Libra 2014 with aspects



1.     Look at the condition of all planets.

Sun in Libra, 9th house is in fall (the Sun is not comfortable in this sign, and therefore does not act in its most positive form).

Venus (ruler of Sun) is in Virgo and in fall (Venus is not comfortable in this sign, and therefore does not act in its most positive form).

Venus is under the Sun’s beams, (usb) which implies that the planet Venus does not live up to its usual expectations.

Venus, ruler of the Sun is conjunct the Moon which is also usb in the 9th house.

Jupiter is in Leo in the 8th house, squaring (friction) Saturn in 11th house, however, sextiles the Midheaven and sextiles and trines the nodes.

Mars is in 11th House in Sagittarius, and sextiles (opportunity) the Midheaven (MH) and the Sun.

Mercury is in Libra in the 10th house and the only planet in the angles of the chart. It conjuncts the North Node, opposes the South Node and squares the Ascendant (Asc).

Saturn is in Scorpio and sextiles the Ascendant, Moon and Venus and squares Jupiter. Saturn rules the planetary hour of the chart.

Assessing the condition of the planets and their placements in the houses, the Ingress chart does not suggest new action, but denotes a continuation of matters already set in action in previous months.

As the planets are all in the upper half of the chart, it seems the government, headed by the Prime Minister (Sun and Mercury) will make a mark in the wider world, with foreign affairs (9th house), and military matters (Mars) taking centre stage. With the communications planet Mercury in the sign of Libra (relationships and negotiations) the chart has an overall theme of “negotiating with others to achieve results”.


2.    Look at state or condition of the King (Sun) and 10th house rulers and planets.

First determine the planet to represent the King – Ramsey always uses the Sun but others don’t.

Ruler of 10th house is Venus (in fall and under the suns beams) so is in bad condition and cannot be the planet to represent the King.

Mercury in 10th house, angular house, square ascendant and conjunct/opposite the Nodes.  mercurysymbolcolor

This is the planet which represents the King or Prime Minister in this Ingress chart. 

Mercury here indicates that the Prime Minister will be very much engaged with discussions (Mercury) and negotiations with others (Libra).

As Mercury also rules scholars and learning, we can expect lots of friction with the people (Asc) regarding the proposed changes to the Higher Education laws, as Mercury squares the ascendant.

The North Node is also conjunct Mercury and with Jupiter in Leo sextiling the North Node, the PM can expect some success with his negotiations, although he will be challenged (opposition to South Node which is trine Jupiter) to adopt a compromise to achieve this success.

As Ramsey always considers the Sun as the planet representing the King, we find  the Sun in Libra in the  9th house , in fall, sextile Mars and trine ascendant.

This placement of the Sun also supports the above theme, that the PM will be involved in negotiations/relationships (Libra) with leaders (Sun) of foreign countries (Russia, USA etc) 9th house. As the Sun makes positive aspects to Mars and trines the ascendant, he will make progress in this area, however, it may be lots of hard work with some, (Sun in fall) and with Mars involved, we may even expect that our troops may see more involvement in foreign countries.

The involvement of the Ascendant in this positive aspect to the Sun, indicates that the nation as a whole will support his actions in foreign affairs and troop involvement.

3. Threat to King                                                  marssymbolcolor

Ramsey tell us to  look at the significators of the 4 th House, opposition to the 10th,  7th house of open enemies, 12th house of private enemies and 9th house of secret enemies (12th from 10th).

  •  The 4th house ruler is Mars in Sagittarius, in 11th house. Backbenchers of the House of Representatives (11th house) will give the Prime Minister some opposition, and succeed as Mars sextiles the Sun.
  • 7th house of open enemies, the ruler is the Moon, which is conjunct Venus in 9th both usb, sextile Saturn, and Trine the Part of Fortune and the Ascendant.

Open enemies will certainly try and disrupt policies of the Prime Minister, with limited success though, as their power is somewhat curtailed due to the Moon and Venus being under the Sun’s beams, which “burns up” the energy of these planets and Venus is in fall.

The Moon is trine Part of Fortune in 12th house of private enemies, so we may also find that some “secret” regarding the Prime Minister is revealed. With the moon involved, we may find that the misogyny issue which haunts Tony Abbott may again come to the fore.

  • 12th house of private enemies, the ruler is Jupiter in Leo in 8th house.

Private enemies, might abound as Jupiter rules this house and makes a few positive aspects to the Nodes, however, they will be blocked by Saturn which is making a square to Jupiter.

  • 9th house of secret enemies ruler is Mercury, which is in Libra in 10th house..

The 9th house is a focus point in this Ingress chart, as it contains the Sun which is the planet representing the PM and is ruled by Mercury, also the planet representing the PM. Will he be his own worst enemy and/or will he find that foreign rulers are secretly playing him for a fool. He has to be very cautious when dealing with the heads of foreign governments and certainly needs good advice. As the Moon and Venus are both in this house and both under the Sun’s beams, which denotes that their energy is “burnt up”, and consequently not working at its best, we can assume that his secret enemies do not have his best interests at heart.

4. Assistance to King.

2nd house signifies wealth and assistance of people, as does 11th house, 8th assistance wealth of open enemies.

  • 2nd house ruler is Saturn in Scorpio in 11th.                   saturnsymbolcolor

Saturn is in the 11th house, which is the house representing the Lower House of Parliament, in our case the House of Representatives (HR)in mundane astrology. As the present government has a majority in this House, it can be expected that overall the HR will support the Prime Minister. The members of his party will support all his efforts in foreign affair matters, given Saturn makes a sextile to the Moon and Venus in the 9th house. However, Saturn also makes a square to Jupiter in the 8th house, so we can expect some friction from his members in the Lower House regarding fiscal matters.


  • 11th house ruler is Mars which is in Sagittarius in 11th house


Mars (the planet of war) is sextile the Sun and MC, so members of the HR will support the Prime Minister, in deploying our troops overseas.

  • 8th house ruler is Sun which is in 9th house


As previously mentioned our Prime Minister will shine in foreign relations (9th house) during this Ingress period and will have the full support of his Parliamentary colleagues for any decisions made regarding these matters.


5.    Look at the condition of the ruler of the people.

Ruler of the People is the ruler of Asc and the Moon.   moonsymbolcolor

Saturn is the ruler of the Ascendant which is in 11th house in Scorpio and square Jupiter in Leo in 8th house. It is also sextile Venus in fall and Moon in Virgo in the 9th house which are both under the Suns beams.

This indicates that the people will not be happy with interest rates (Jupiter 8th), and suggests that there may be a rise in interest rates, due to lower (square friction) export earnings. The people will continue to be unhappy (square) about the national debt and the recent budget measures (8th house).

As Saturn is also the ruler of the 2nd house in the Ingress chart, there may be changes to taxes and overall the economy is still depressed.

The promised (Jupiter) changes to the economy (Saturn) do not fulfil the people’s expectations.

Moon is in Virgo in 9th house, under the sun’s beams, and conjunct Venus in fall and also under the sun’s beams, sextile Saturn in 11th and trine the Asc and Part of Fortune in 12th.

Issues regarding travel, foreign affairs and tertiary education will come to the fore. The people will have expectations (Moon conjunct Venus) regarding these issues, and will be somewhat successful in making their voices heard.

With Saturn in 11th house (House of Representatives, HR), will the backbenchers side with the people rather than with the PM?

As the Moon also represents women/children, the backbenchers may also have success (sextile aspect) in changing the Parental Leave initiatives (Virgo is the natural ruler of 6th house of workers conditions).

The above aspects also show that the people will not accept the co-payment fee to General Practitioners, as the natural house of Virgo is the 6th which also rules health issues.

As Saturn is making the square (friction) to Jupiter (high expectations of abundance) in the 8th house, the recent budget (8th house) will continue to be unsupported by the people. The popular disapproval of the recent budgetary measures will also encourage backbenchers to take actions which go against the Government’s fiscal policies.


6.    Find the Lord of the Year to assess the condition of the people.


According to Ramsey, the Lord of the Year is the almuten of the chart. One is to take the planet in any condition and make assessment.

Mars is the Almuten of this Ingress chart which is in 11th house in Sagittarius.

Mars is sextile the MC and the Sun which is in fall.

It seems that as Mars represents soldiers/armed forces, they will be happy with any decisions made regarding deployment overseas. Their activities overseas should also be successful.

As Mars also sextiles (opportunity) the Sun which is in fall and in the 9th house, negotiations (Libra) with foreign rulers (Sun in 9th) will not be totally satisfactory.

Ramsey also states to look at the planet which is exalted in the sign of Lord of the Year.

As Mars is in Sagittarius, and the South node is exalted in Sagittarius, we find the South Node in the 4th house opposite Mercury in 10th and trine Jupiter and sextile the North Node in the chart.

To my mind this indicates that the people will support any moves from the opposition, (4th House) to oppose fiscal matters (8th house). In other words, the people support moves by all opposition (ALP, Greens, PUP) parties to oppose some of the harsher decisions of the recent Budget.

Also look to the natural Ruler of the house the Almuten is in.

The natural ruler of the 11th house, the sign of Aquarius is Saturn.

See above for delineation of Saturn in this house.

Other ancients would consider Mercury in Libra as the Lord of the Year– as it is the only planet in an angular house, in this case, if Mercury is regarded as Lord of the Year, the condition of the people will be assessed by Mercury which makes a square to the Ascendant and is conjunct/opposite the Nodes.

In the case of Mercury being the Lord of the Year, tradesmen, merchants and learning, should be considered. As mercury is square the Ascendant, and also the planet which represent the Ruler, ideas may well be a bit confused, and negotiations with others (Mercury in Libra), may not have positive outcomes for the Ruler. Hence, we may expect that negotiations surrounding the changes to the Higher Education laws may not have the expected outcomes.

Planet which is exalted in the sign of the Lord of the Year if Mercury.

As mercury is in Libra, Saturn is exalted in that sign. Saturn is in Scorpio in 11th house and is square Jupiter in Leo in 8th.

See above for delineation of Saturn.

It seems the planet Saturn, is heavily emphasised in this Ingress chart. So the theme of support for foreign affair matters (9th house) will prevail, as Saturn sextiles (opportunity) the Moon, Venus conjunction in Virgo in the 9th house.  Given the condition of Venus and the Moon, as previously mentioned, foreign relations will however,  not be without certain frictions.

As Saturn is also square (friction) to the 8th house Jupiter (fiscal matters), we can also expect friction surrounding the latest budget to continue.

This Ingress chart does not make any contact with the Solar/Lunar eclipses expected during the ingress period.

However, during November, the Venus, Sun and Mercury will all move and make contact with Saturn, so we can expect matters regarding the Budget to escalate during this month. Mercury and Venus also make contact with Mars during November and early December, which should denote positive times for the Prime Minister.
