With all the planetary tussles going on – Saturn opposing Jupiter and Uranus with Venus in between and then the Sun getting mixed up with Neptune its not much wonder we’ve got a coalition government in the UK.
As the impact of this dawns on everyone perhaps its as well to remember that oppositions themselves create TENSION. So with Cameron the Libran – known for diplomacy – fronting the thing coupled with a bit of Capricornian Clegg ambition thrown in this could be a good way to take things forward.
In our own lives just now – its bound to be a time of feeling pushed and pulled around. We need to look for our own coalitions…
Just as Mercury turns retrograde and Neptune infuses the atmosphere with a mysterious air we are at the mercy of the meanderings of a cloud created by the Eyjafjallajökull volcano which means air travel is in suspended animation.
It is the most perfect reflection of the cosmos.
All very Alice in Wonderland – whether you are falling down rabbit holes like Camilla or very, very late for a very important date.

If I was my own client I would be advising something creative, so off to The National Academy School of Fine Arts for a sculpture course. We have a sitting model and a lump of clay. It’s great to be at school and the smell of plaster dust is quite intoxicating (another Neptunian dimension). The other students comprise one young guy who turns out surreal heads with oversize lips – Angelina Jolie eat your heart out. These are big smackers. And a couple of older women who claim no previous experience but obviously worked with Michelangelo in a previous life. The course director looks like something left over from Woodstock.
First week I’ve massaged that head for 6 hours and feel I’ve really got stuck in. Second week I arrive – my head is nowhere to be seen. Woodstock Man helps me search and uncovers one. ‘This is yours’ he says.
I’m nearly convinced but mine had a long neck, like E.T. ‘Lucky I didn’t start working on someone else’s sculpture’ says me.
Woodstock Man’s eyes go misty. ‘We used to swap around a lot in the 60′s’. Somehow I didn’t think he was talking sculpture!
Anyway, suddenly in comes Roadie (his side-kick) who announces that there had been a terrible accident! My head has fallen over (such a big head you see!) Roadie uncovers the body of Car Crash Dummy, my erstwhile beautiful woman who is now mortally injured, lop-sided and destined for the scrap heap. But I spend another 6 hours repairing her.
Such is Neptune. Don’t get attached. Just let go…
Definitely no green card for me. It feels strange. Curiously in New York you can hardly buy a latte without being asked for ID. Right now I have no US bank account, no social security number – I am effectively a non-person.
Which is interesting considering I’m in that Neptunian realm as it squares up to my Mercury and it’s all about being very Pisces – just coasting along, ego-less, form-less etc.
It works fine. Unless you want something like entry to view a school, or sinus medicine from the pharmacy – then you’d better become real and manifested with photo-I.D to prove it, pronto.
Still there are some good places here…
Sag Harbour, for instance, which I reckon is for all those who haven’t been lifted (a rarity in New York). Or you can enjoy the language – it always makes me laugh when I walk down the street and stand outside the laundry where there’s a big sign saying ‘Drop your pants here’. I can hardly resist doing so!
