June 26 horoscopes are below this weekly commentary.

BREXIT FOR BREAKFAST

Brexit was a bigger headline than Charles and Diana’s royal divorce. And just as hard to swallow. Britain's semi-detached European marriage was over. On the eve of the vote the political analyst Peter Kellner tipped Remain to prevail by 8.5% - plus or minus 6. He claimed if that wasn’t clear enough – flip a coin or ask an astrologer. Truer words were never spoken. They seemed to have a better idea.

What went wrong with the mainstream media push for Remain? They were backed by the establishment, the bankers, the political analysts and the British Prime Minister, David Cameron. At the moment he probably cannot get Cher's, ‘If I Could Turn back Time’ out of his head. For Great Britain are out of the Union and Cameron is out of office.

The European Union began with the Treaty of Rome, which took place at 18.30 hours on March 25 1957. There was always going to be some changes to the formation of the union when Saturn came back to Sagittarius in 2016. It’s a transit that has prefaced the Protestant Reformation and disintegration of the Soviet Empire. I mused about this at the end of 2014 in an article entitled…

SATURN IN SAGITTARIUS

“Saturn was in Sagittarius both for the March 25 1957 signing of the Treaty Of Rome, laying the foundation of the European Economic Community and its institution on January 1 1958. The first major revision of the 1957 treaty came when Saturn returned to Sagittarius, and the Single European Act was signed in February 1986 coming into effect on July 1 1987. Saturn’s return cycle is setting the scene for a further economic revision of Europe.”

Fast track to February 2016, as the Treaty of Rome begins to field its second Saturn return cycle. In this return, the ringed planet is making a series of three passes over the position it occupied when the EU was birthed. The Saturn return came to exactness at 15 degrees of Sagittarius in February, as the Brexit campaign launched.

Saturn is the planet of structure. But, for most of 2016, Saturn is caught in a testy T-Square between Jupiter, the lawmaker, the eclipsing Nodes and Neptune. All of which tends to dissolve central control. The obvious correlation is that the Treaty of Rome is under unprecedented pressure for systematic change. Its ‘solidarity’ is shaken to the core. And as Neptune tends to dissipate and disperse, current conditions cannot continue.

SINGLE EUROPEAN ACT

The last Saturn return, for the Treaty of Rome, arived in 1986 when the Single European Act was conceived. The objectives of this revision were to free up trade between the member countries and work toward a single market. The Act aimed to unify laws and guarantee greater cohesion, leading to the modern European Union that exists today.

The Single European Act soon became subject to national debates and delays. Referendums were held in Denmark and Ireland. This careful deliberation accompanied the Treaty of Rome experiencing its first ‘organizational’ Saturn return. Saturn would finish its homecoming cycle as the Single European Act began on July 1 1987.

On that evidence alone the current Saturn return, from February 2016, promised a major shakeup. That was the month that David Cameron announced the June BREXIT referendum. In astrology, timing is everything. Denmark, who joined the same day as Britain, opted out of some European Union conditions in their recent December referendum. Cameron should have seen it coming.

THE JOINING DATE

Great Britain joined the European Union on New Year’s Day 1973, the same day as Denmark. The position of Saturn on the day of their joining was the 16th degree of Gemini. It was closely opposite the 15 degree Sagittarian Saturn for the 1957 Treaty of Rome. Click here for joining biwheel.

This made the 2016 Saturn return doubly important. Not only was it affecting the original Treaty of Rome agreement, but also the date of Britain’s inclusion. But it wasn’t only Saturn.

Last week’s column also pointed to the Uranus opposition point of Britain joining the Union. The planet of rebellious independence factored powerfully. In an individual’s life, the Uranus opposition point is when one rapidly and willfully reacts against perceived restrictive circumstances. It differs little in a national horoscope. See the joining and Brexit charts here.

This wasn’t the first time Britain had held a referendum on leaving. They did so on June 5 1975, as the Gemini Sun moved across the Saturn position of their joining. That vote was an overwhelming endorsement of unity. The leaving time comes as Saturn opposes the Gemini joining position. The following paragraph is also taken from the 'Saturn in Sagittarius' article.

“Sagittarius, ruled by Jupiter, thrives off futuristic endeavor. When its dream is found wanting by the critical rationale of Saturn, upheaval is inevitable. This results in a weakening of the ‘central command’.

Vassal states detach from the empire as the human costs outweigh the financial benefits. New and different allegiances are formed. Religious and economic oppression or inequality is countered and might is once again proven not to be right.”

The last time Saturn moved through Sagittarius signaled the beginning of the break up of the Soviet Union. This came as a shock at the time, although it was forecast by the French mundane master Andre Barbault, well ahead of time. His work on the Saturn Neptune cycle led to reliable prediction, without polling or flipping coins.

There is more to write - re the EU and the Maastricht Treaty - but something else is also on the agenda.

AUSTRALIAN FEDERAL ELECTION

Australian voters will return to the polls to elect a new government from July 2 2016. Some may be wondering why, as the parties usually displace their leaders in the interim. On voting day, the transiting Sun will oppose its position when the first federal administration was sworn in on January 1 1901. The implication is that there will be a swing away from the current government accompanying this solar opposition.

Such was hardly imaginable last year, when Malcolm Turnbull became the national leader. His preferred Prime Minister rating was 76%, dwarfing a virtually non-existent 14% for Labor opponent Bill Shorten. But again astrology is a matter of timing. Turnbull, buoyed by his own popularity, became determined to force a double dissolution to gain total control of both houses of parliament.

I envisage this election to be more akin to a double disillusionment for the public and in the long-term, Turnbull too. Malcolm was born October 24 1954, meaning that his progressed horoscope is now in its closing balsamic lunar phase. That’s the time for moving on from something, ideally to plant new seeds. His SP Sun is also moving into a difficult semisquare to restrictive Saturn.

While Saturn aspects bring responsibilities suited to administration, the semisquare tends to be a limiting aspect. By November this year transiting Saturn will also semisquare Turnbull’s birth Sun which has progressed Mars also negatively affecting. All of this propels my thinking toward further obstructions, difficulties and his eventual replacement.

Turnbull called the election at 14.31 hours on May 7 2016 from parliament house Canberra. This timing remarkably overlaid with his opponent Bill Shorten’s horoscope – the Sun’s and Mercury’s were conjunct. And it gave Shorten the early running with surprisngly improved polling that gave the underdog a longshot chance. Click here for the election call and Shorten's chart.

My summation is that Captain Bligh’s power play backfires. Like his namesake Malcolm will eclipse himself. He will be lucky to escape by the skin of his teeth, leading to the eventual loss of his authority within his own party. When Turnbull took the oath as Australia’s 29th Prime Minister, at 13.34 hours September 15 2015, the surprise packet of Uranus was at the base of the swearing in horoscope. It’s a sign that he can go, just as suddenly as he came.

Aries or Aries Rising: Regardless of what you think of your upbringing, parents or early life, it all happened for a purpose. And you are now living that purpose. In the most positive sense, something vitally important that you've ‘inherited’ can be playing a definitive role now. This week is a time to reflect upon the wellspring. Your past is about to help someone else's future, and somehow help secure yours. To look at your own personal chart, organise a personal and/or Skype consultation with Ed Tamplin. Click here for details. Top 

Taurus or Taurus Rising: Alzheimers is a neurodegenerative disorder of diminishing contacts. And yes, that large descriptive adjective was meant to fire up your own brainwaves. Because this week isn't about atrophying in isolation - it's about making connections - new or old. Anonymity is a choice. Perhaps you're not advertising your availability. Perhaps you're leaving it up to someone else to make the first contact. You're still part of the network - you just need to plug into it to activate. To look at your own personal chart, organise a Skype and/or personal consultation with Ed Tamplin. Click here for details. Top

Gemini or Gemini Rising: Of course there are more important things in life than money. And sure, not everyone has a price. And yes people should stop being so damn materialistic and start worrying about more important things. Didn't Marx say that money couldn't make him happy? If it was Groucho he also added that he would like just one chance to prove it. Which is what you may be thinking this week. Sometimes without the base chakra the others just don't add up. To look at your own personal chart, organise a Skype and or personal consultation with Ed Tamplin. Click here for details. Top

Cancer or Cancer Rising: Feel the love! You should be sampling it, with the warming Sun and affectionate, indulgent Venus spotlighting Cancer. Life can get a bit rich when you're the only sign currently having a birthday. The other - and even more important - side of this equation involves shedding the skins of yesterday. Setting your new course brings the real benefits here. You're on a fresh revolution of the Sun. Time to use the latest injection of self esteem to think and act like a revolutionary. To look at your own personal chart, organise a phone or Skype consultation with Ed Tamplin. Click here for details. Top

Leo or Leo Rising: You're the life of the party. You thrive in the atmosphere of entertainment and amusement. Truth is - don't you tire of such trite generalities, even if they're half true? Because sometimes you'd prefer to tell the world to take a giant flying leap. And to just curl up in a comfort ball of your own design. Sometimes you could just use an inviting getaway where only your lover is welcome. And even they have to knock first. Enjoy the escape - make the time - while you can. To look at your own personal chart, organise a phone or Skype onsultation with Ed Tamplin. Click here for details. Top

Virgo or Virgo Rising: There's justification for not taking things on face value. The rewards of doing your own research on something will cut through the salesmen speil of anyone around you now. Whether they are doing it intentionally is not the real issue. Some people are expert at pulling the wool over their own eyes. In that case you may have to play the helpful teacher role - casting a light into someone's darkness. Do it gently. An accent on group activities can also deliver personal rewards. To look at your own personal chart, organise a phone or Skype consultation with Ed Tamplin. Click here for details. Top

Libra or Libra Rising: It's that kind of week where you go to a show only to find that you end up being part of the performance. Where putting up your hand to ask where the rest room is, lands you on centre stage. So be ready - make sure your shoes are well polished. If somebody asks you for advice or directions early in the week, take that as a sign. Somehow you're meant to be in charge or part of the main act. It's a real plus if you're seeking a career change. To look at your own personal chart, organise a phone or Skype consultation with Ed Tamplin. Click here for details. Top

Scorpio or Scorpio Rising: When something is beyond your reach then you stretch, or use a ladder to get to it. That's pretty much the analogy of how to approach this week. Something is on your radar. You know how to get to it. But you have to move or enlist some assistance to nail the prize. It's the time when mentors, maps and guides come in very handy. It's also great for travel or something that takes you away from the familiar. Keep a positive attitude that you can do it - even if it's the first time. To look at your own personal chart, organise a phone or Skype consultation with Ed Tamplin. Click here for details. Top

Sagittarius or Sagittarius Rising: Though shalt not covet thy neighbour's house. So sayeth the tenth commandment. You can throw in his donkey, maid or manservant too. So keeping up with the Joneses is certianly out and definitely no mention of 'swingers'. In the astrological sense it is seriously about offering a decent trade for something someone else has - and you want. Like taking out a loan. There are bargains to be had if you keep it within the rules. There can even be mutual benefits from pooling resources. To look at your own personal chart, organise a phone or personal consultation with Ed Tamplin. Click here for details.  Top

Capricorn or Capricorn Rising: Venus and the Sun are already there and Mercury is on the way to opposing your sign. It's a time of reviewing, and selecting, who you want to be with. Realignments around relationships, from a personal and/or business angle. But they have to suit the changes you are also making within yourself. It shouldn't be as much 'us or them' as much as, where can we compliment each other in a new arrangement? Look at your own future prospects astrologically for the years ahead, organize a phone or personal consultation with Ed Tamplin Click here for details. Top

Aquarius or Aquarius Rising: Wisdom in hindsight. If only you had that chance over again...you would have pulled out on the last red, or at the very least not drank it. But seriously, when do we ever learn from success? Usually only when it stops. The positive part is you recognised when something needed a handbrake applied, even if it did take a wall to assist. You're getting better at something the hard way, but it's also the sure way. Practise makes perfect. To look at your own future prospects astrologically for 2016 -2016, organise a phone or personal consultation with Ed. Click here for details. Top

Pisces or Pisces Rising: Something that you may have given up on shows new signs of life. The personal planets are beginning their upward ascension and as they move into the water element they also uplift your mood. When your intuition is working for you, as it is now, it's also the time for taking chances. Fortune favoring the brave is simply the manifestation of doing something about it. Creatively you are moving toward a new high, where you need to be willing to back your talents.
