What the Stars have in store for 2023

Happy Equinox. The moment the Sun enters Aries is also, in Mundane Astrology, an indicator of what is going to happen in one’s country for the coming months or year. Hence I have drawn up a chart for the UK (see image). The precise location I have redacted from the image, save to say it is somewhere in the South-east of England.

Chart drawn up for the moment Sun entered 0º Aries (i.e. the Equinox).

Unfortunately it does not look good. The ascendant is in Scorpio, a Fixed Sign, implying that the chart applies throughout the next twelve months. More tellingly however, the Lord of the Ascendant is Mars, the planet of wars and conflicts, which is in the 8th House, the House of death! Tellingly, the Ascendant is in close conjunction with Cauda Draconis, implying that the country’s general condition of prosperity and health will be closely tied up with issues arising from its past (e.g. colonial legacy).

In fact, the difficultly placed Mars puts a dampener on much of the year, given that it is Square to the Sun (which represents the Government), and the Moon (which represents the People). I would therefore predict as follows:

The Sun

Prime Minister Rishi Sunak, in league with some dodgy criminals.

Represents the UK government, is in the fifth house. Government policy will be mainly concerned with legislation affecting children and young people, including gender-identity issues and sexuality. The industrial disputes that have been affecting public services will continue and not see resolution.

(Sun square Mars) There will be at least one major terrorism incident involving the assassination of a senior British leader, and this will colour the Government’s attitude to home security throughout the year.

The Government will generally enjoy good relations with the Press, and also with literary figures, and those in the entertainment industry.

However, the Government will also be involved in shady relations with criminals, and will quite hypocritically entertain people in private who are supposedly not aligned with the Government.

The Moon

Sir Keir Starmer, leader of the Labour Party, will succeed in groping for public support.

Represents the people. Pisces / 4th House.

The general populace will mainly be concerned with itself: politically, there will be an upturn in support for the Labour party (currently in Opposition) as indicated by the its placement in the 4th house and its conjunction with Neptune, the planet of socialism and collectivist politics.

The people will greatly resent the Government’s handling of the major terrorist incident mentioned above: one can infer will impact public consciousness greatly.


I apologise if this is rather bleak, but hey, I call ’em like I see them. However, there are ways for the people of Britain to leverage the stellar influences currently manifest to its favour. For example, the stars only really look bad for the current Conservative government. Get rid of the Tories, and people will be a lot happier. Moreover, the flip-side of Cauda Draconis being conjunct the Ascendant, is that Caput Draconis is conjunct the Descendant – implying that Britain’s future lies in having benevolent relations with foreign countries – dare I say it, the European Union?

Alex Sumner’s answer to What does the astrological chart predict for 2021? – Quora

Mundane astrology, i.e. the astrology of world events, is usually done by taking a chart for the moment of the Spring Equinox. As a resident of the UK I have thus analysed a chart for Saturday 20th March 2021, 0937 (the exact moment of the Equinox), London UK. You will appreciate therefore that most of what I will say comes from a British point of view.

A horoscope for the moment of the Spring (March) Equinox – Saturday 20th March 2020, 0937, London UK

The good news is that the COVID-19 crisis will end. The bad news is that the Aftermath of COVID-19 will begin.

Moon is in Gemini in the 12th House, conjunct North node and Mars, trine to Saturn and Jupiter. The general population will react positively to the end of the COVID-19 crisis, but there will be a great upheaval in people’s lives, caused by a great awareness of having to look after the sick and elderly. A major theme will be that a lot of people will be complaining that they didn’t realise just how much the aftermath of COVID-19 would affect them. Workers will demand – even to the extent of going on strike – the right to take (more) leave from work in order to care for sick relatives, and there will almost certainly be major public protests about this.

On the plus side, however, the Sun is in the 11th House, the House of Friendship, analogous to Aquarius, the sign of humanistic ideals and service to others. It is conjunct Venus, which in mundane charts represents Women. We may thus expect Women rise to prominence in public life, achieving great things in government and politics. 2021 will be a good year for Feminism – women’s issues will figure heavily in the business of Parliament.

What the Stars have in store for the UK in 2020

Happy Equinox! In case you hadn’t noticed it, it is now Aries season, and consequently, Spring has officially arrived. At this time of year Astrologers are able to prognosticate on what the future holds for the year ahead, by resorting to “Mundane Astrology” – which involves drawing up a chart for the precise moment the Sun hits Oº Aries.
Here is what such a chart looks like for London, UK:

Chart for 11.49pm GMT, London, UK, on March 19th 2020

The actual moment of the Equinox was 11.49pm GMT.

We can note straightaway that the Sun – representing the Government – is in the fourth house, representing homes, housing policy and the living conditions. Given that increasingly large numbers of people are currently being forced to stay at home due to mass hysteria ahem, I mean COVID-19, we may expect that a major drive in Government policy in the coming year will be to introduce important reforms for people who are trapped indoors – to improve their conditions.

It is tempting to view the Quadrivium of Mars / Jupiter / Pluto / Saturn all in Capricorn as indicative of the current public health crisis itself. That they are all lying in the Second House in the above chart emphasises how, in very general terms, this will affect the Economy. However, because of the nature of the planets concerned, we can be more specific:

  • The recent panic in public opinion has passed its peak. However, there will still be one minor panic at least once a week for the next several months.
  • The armed forces will be deployed on the streets – firstly to reinforce the judiciary and the legal system (martial law?); secondly, to hunt down and capture terrorists are seeking to exploit the situation; then latterly and more usefully, to assist in Britain’s agriculture industry to maintain regular food supplies. We may also expect the armed forces to relieve pressure on the NHS, for example by providing nursing staff.
  • The Stock Market will go through at least three major jolts this year: the economy will not start to begin to feel normal again until at least six months hence.

Furthermore – in a massive case of “I TOLD YOU SO,” the forces of BREXIT and those who supported it will prove to be a continual drag and hindrance on positive efforts to deal with the public health crisis, despite the Press and Media trying to protect them from negative publicity.

And finally…

As we hit this Equinox, the Sun is moving into conjunction with Chiron, the Wounded Healer. This would suggest that the predicament the Government now finds itself in is in effect the result of an “untreated wound” that has been ignored for too long – e.g. that the UK is plainly unprepared for a major health crisis. The upside of this is that the Government can learn from what is happening this year, so that it can ensure a crisis of this magnitude never happens again.
