Hungary – not playing by EU rules



Hungary under Viktor Orban has been accused by the EU parliament over breaches of the EU’s core values – attacks on the media, minorities, and the rule of law. All hotly denied. More than two-thirds of MEPs backed the censure motion – the first such vote against a member state under EU rules – and it now has to go to national leaders with the likelihood of a split between conservatives and nationalists on whether to pursue punitive measures.

Hungary joined the EU on 1 May 2004 which chart has a hostile Mars opposition Pluto; as well as a beneficial Sun trine Jupiter, sextile Saturn; plus an opportunistic Jupiter opposition Uranus. So benefits from EU funding but resentment about interference in internal affairs.

The EU/Hungary relationship chart has tr Pluto square the composite Uranus in 2018/2019 so there were always going to be ructions, though nothing terminal, at least for a few years ahead.

Orban’s 3rd Term chart, 10 May 2018 12pm has a lucky, talented, super-ambitious and controlling Half Grand sextile of Sun opposition Jupiter, sextile/trine Pluto and Neptune. But it also has an explosive (Pluto) Mars square Uranus Mercury which will create rolling crises.

The Hungary, 23 October 1989 12pm Budapest chart, is downbeat and edgy at the moment with tr Saturn conjunct Uranus, Saturn, Ascendant and Neptune and opposition Jupiter, all before the end of this year. And is also being jangled this year into early 2019 by tr Uranus opposition the Scorpio Sun. Exactly now tr Pluto is square the 9th house Mercury for nervous irritation over criticism and sharp responses. Tr Neptune is also in an undermining square to the financial Venus in 2018/2019.

Then in 2019/2020 tr Pluto squares the Hungary Mars for a deeply frustrating and enraging phase. Being 9th house it is likely to be centred on legal matters and relations with neighbouring countries. By 2020 tr Uranus moves into the 4th, opposing the midheaven and starting six years of domestic unrest.

They are facing a tough few years ahead.


One thought on “Hungary – not playing by EU rules

  1. Yes, this is the man who to,d National Opera to cancel all “Billy Elliot” shows (which have been a hit) this week and is defunding programs at State Universities. Definitely not interfering anywhere, and these are just rather innocent infractions

    But this only was the first time measures were voted on by European Parliament, not the first time measures were reccomended by European Counsil. Poland went through a similar process for breaching rule of law last year.

    Also, absolutely playing on the general EPP Group drama in Europea Parliament I spoke about earlier. Martin Weber, CDU “splitzkandidat”, has backed Orbàn, since Fidesz incredibly is part of the group. I don’t think it’s out of question some of the more Liberal Conservative Parties – Nordic EPP members and some of the Dutch Parties will realign with En Marche and ALDE after the Elections if they keep Fidesz in.

    Really interesting times for EU as whole, and a sign that things go on.
