The main aspects this month are Saturn-square-Neptune and Jupiter-trine-Pluto. Here is the chart for the EU referendum day, set for the close and opening of polls. At our recent discussion we felt that these charts (and the others we looked at) didn’t produce any obvious astrological conclusion. The grand cross involving Mercury-Saturn-Neptune-Jupiter and the way that other aspects don’t link in to this may indicate a lack of coherence or the competing viewpoints failing to connect. But is the angular Mars & Pluto at close of polls significant - and if so how ? A sudden change of direction, the power to hang on to the status quo, or just a lot of angry people whatever the result ? The 1975 referendum had Uranus on the midheaven at close of polls, but that produced a clear majority in favour of staying in what was then the EEC. As so often with astrology one can make a case for these charts summing up the issues people are debating, and the nature of that debate, but trying to condense that into a yes/no decision isn’t so clear. One could view a chart that's difficult to judge as one where the real issues are hidden or overlooked, so plus ca change is another possible interpretation.
