    1 Comment
             The hawkish John Bolton – for bombing Iran and North Korea –  has been announced as HR McMaster’s replacement for National Security Adviser, a post which requires no Senate confirmation. He was for the Iraq attack on Saddam Hussein and still thinks it was a good idea. He is a frequent Fox News commentator who has impressed Trump with his appearances; though he differs on Putin whom he distrusts and on free trade. Known for his intelligence, stubborn ideology, rudeness, arrogance and contempt for those who questions his views, he has been described as “stunningly impolitic”. Born 20 November 1948, he has an intense late Scorpio Sun with Mercury also in Scorpio square Pluto, which will give him …Keep reading »

And despite the general global climate for equality, the shift to harder left in the Labour Party plays against women since they are more misogynist than most. None of these charts have birth time so there is missing info. Emily Thornberry, 27 July 1960 is a showy and idealistic Sun Venus in Leo square Neptune; with a volatile and outspoken Mars in Taurus square Uranus, with …Keep reading »

    1 Comment
          The cracks in the UK Labour Party are widening with moderates up in arms at what they see as Jeremy Corbyn’s anti-western stance in his slippery response to the Skripal poisoning. As one former minister puts it: “The instinct is to support Russia because your enemy’s enemy is your friend. It’s not anti-war, it’s anti-West.”  And one MP said if he were elected as PM: “If I’m honest, I think he would be a threat to national security.” He’s winning on the economic arguments, but the takeover of the party at all levels by hardliners is causing alarm as well. The Labour Party, 27 February 1900 chart, is on a Saturn Return this year, so a sobering …Keep reading »
