After a turbulent few years, BHS has gone into liquidation. The formation chart for the company has six planets in Aries, so transiting Uranus has been successively hitting all of these since 2010, marking a series of continuing losses, reorganisations and re-brandings. Furthermore in 2015 transiting Neptune conjuncted the BHS Mars in Pisces, potentially a recipe for problems focussing on direction, dissipation of energy and inability to take practical action. This was when the company was sold to its final owners for a nominal £1 and now there is an ongoing inquiry into whether this transaction was carried out with due diligence, particularly in light of a deficit in the company’s pension fund, with allegations that the company was asset stripped before its sale. When Neptune transits a business chart it seems to indicate the possibility of loss, fraud or deception, though usually it’s a Neptune-Venus contact. It has also been experiencing its Pluto half-return and will be reaching its demise on its third Saturn return.
