The chart is set for Westminster, England, and so is most relevant to the United Kingdom, but also in large degree to the world and especially the financial world as London is the prime centre.
Firstly we have the New Moon in Aquarius in the 2nd house of the economy, finance and security, conjunct the chart ruler Saturn, square Uranus in Taurus in the 5th house of speculation and creativity.
This is a good time for a new start economically, although serious caution is needed as the square to Uranus suggests that it could happen only as a reaction to some unexpected events around this time. Finance, the economy in general are certainly going to feature strongly during this lunation, and perhaps especially the unstable nature of it at present.
The government as well as the people are going to be shocked and restless. Expect the unexpected, especially with disruptive Uranus exactly conjunct the IC or nadir of the chart. Also expect the public to be expressive and vent their feelings. This could also be in reaction to unexpected and even shocking developments.
With Capricorn rising the overall feeling of the chart is about practical, logistical concerns, especially so with Mars exalted so very close to the ascending degree and also in positive aspect to a dignified Jupiter in Pisces in the 3rd house. There could be some good news for the masses in regard to executive changes, either in government or in big corporations. Today and in the ensuing day or two, there could be a lot of action, perhaps even some kind of military action, although more likely to do with the situation in the UK.
There is a very strong Capricornian element to this chart which will only underline business, economic and executive dealings. This will include the government as Venus in Capricorn is also the 10th house ruler, and Mars is ruler of the MC; expect some serious developments in regard to changes in policy and even with personnel inside the cabinet.
However, with Mercury still retrograde and close to distorting Pluto and with befuddling Neptune in the 3rd house, don’t expect too much clarity. Some events might be hidden, only to emerge around February 3 and beyond when Mercury turns direct.
