Brexit bill: Parliament clears way for talks with EU

Parliament has passed the Brexit bill, paving the way for the government to trigger Article 50 so the UK can leave the European Union. Peers backed down over the issues of EU residency rights and a meaningful vote on the final Brexit deal after their objections were overturned by MPs. The bill is expected to receive Royal Assent and become law on Tuesday. This means Theresa May is free to push the button on withdrawal talks - now expected in the last week of March.

Eclipses lunar cycles tend to bring about endings and new beginnings. The chart for the February 26 solar eclipse at London is placed in the mundane 8th house in hard aspect to the Jupiter-Uranus-Pluto T-square placed significantly on the meridian axis.

At the heart of Brexit is the question “Do individual member countries have the freedom to choose what they will or won’t do, or do collective institutions have the power to determine what actions will and won’t be allowed?” This is also the essence of Uranus in Aries square to Pluto in Capricorn, which is the most significant astrological alignment of this decade. The activation of the Uranus-Pluto cycle implies that the 2010s represent a crossroads for human civilization in terms of how societies are organized and run. In the previous post [1] we addressed the same issue so that the following extract is relevant here.

On one hand, the Uranus-Pluto synthesis brings attention to the authoritarian destructive use of power and its ramifications. On the other, it can motivate radical and mind-expanding change in the very foundation of consciousness that breaks us from very deep-seated and long-standing genetic, cultural and social behavioral patterns. The Uranus-Pluto cycle, therefore, charts the progression of radical social movements that involve massive shifts of power from one group to another, or from one manner of collective expression to another. These occur through shocking revolutions or revelations, where a resistant status quo eroded from within is overturned clearing the way through destruction for a new beginning.

The alignment of Uranus in Aries first-quarter square to Pluto in Capricorn opens the door for a possible transfer of power from institutions (Capricorn) to localized units (Aries). This possibility has opened because of a breakdown in our largest institutions (Capricorn) which have  overplayed  their power in ways that are clearly self-serving (Pluto).
