The first half of the year is behind us, and with six months still to go, 2016 has already proved to be quite a year. There were more than a few shock waves as Donald Trump emerged as the presumptive Republican nominee, Bernie Sanders scored a number of upsets against Hillary Clinton and, last but not least, Brexit.
Am I shocked? No, because as a predictive astrologer, the events that are playing out today reflect the natural outcome of the series of Uranus-Pluto squares that occurred in the heavens between June 2012 and March 2015.
In short, we’re experiencing a series of energetic aftershocks as these titans make good on their promise to create a new world order.
To recap, in one corner we had Uranus, the planet of enlightenment, rebellion and chaos, immersed in Aries, the sign of the Self and in the other, we had Pluto, the planet of power, abuse and transformation in Capricorn, the sign of government.
As these planetary titans waged war in the heavens, the polarizing nature of these planets demanded that we choose a side, and one only needs to look at the political landscapes of the USA to see it play out out on a daily basis.
For the past several years, the voice of the people has been loud, angry and divided about it’s nation’s future direction. When this revolutionary cycle ended, so did the middle of the road, and in its wake it left a single question that begged to be answered:
Whose side are you on?
Great Britain gave its answer to that question on June 27 when it voted 52-48 to exit the European Union. You can click here to read my thoughts about the astrological influences behind this historical decision.
The USA will reveal its answer on November 8th. At the moment, Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump are the presumptive nominees for their respective parties, and reflecting the energy of the Uranus-Pluto squares, they represent two political extremes. They’re also polarizing personalities. People love them; people hate them; and there’s little middle ground.
What does astrology say? Will history be made by Hillary Clinton as the first woman President or by Donald Trump as the first businessman to sit in the White House? Stay tuned …
