Jonathan Cainer's Zodiac Forecasts

This week in Astro News:
~ The nation's charts ~
~ AstroDiary ~

I have been having another look at the horoscope of the nation, and whatís interesting me is that the nationís chart, Tony Blairís chart, the chart of the USA, and the present position of Neptune all have something in common. Mars, the planet of war, falls in early Aquarius in the British chart. This same part of Aquarius is where the lunar nodes - points of destiny, if you like - fall in Tony Blairís, so the two energies start to flow into each other at that point of contact in Aquarius. What this means is that Mr Blair, whose politics are usually very much based on conciliation, finds himself taking a warlike stance instead. Whatís even more interesting is that the lunar nodes in the chart of the USA, dating from 1776, are at the very same spot in Aquarius, which not only explains why Mr Blair feels he has such a need to be seen as Americaís best friend, but also why we are so often allies of the US in world conflict. And now, in 2002, Neptune has reached that point in Aquarius, which it does only once in 165 years.

So what does this mean? It means we should be very careful. Neptune is a planet of illusion and deception. For politicians it can bring changes in public opinion which demolish previously unassailable positions almost overnight. For armies it means enormous effort wasted, and little result. And what happened the last time Neptune was at this part of Aquarius, in 1838? The British army invaded Afghanistan, and the state of Texas was at war with Mexico. Like the planets, everything seems to go round in circles.

A series of 360 descriptions of symbols or images, one for each degree of the zodiac, were described by a clairvoyant in 1925 to give extra insight to astrologers. Often the pictures make no sense at all, but when they do, theyíre stunning. The one for the part of Aquarius which links Britain, Tony Blair and the USA is Ďa flag turned into an eagleí. Spooky, isnít it?

Research into Astrology and Infertility by Pat Harris, MSc., D.F.Astrol.S.

I would like to thank everyone who has responded to my earlier notices on Jonathan's website and who volunteered to take part in the research that I am conducting as part of my PhD in astrology and health psychology at Southampton University, UK. I now have quite a number of people taking part which will help me in conducting my study into factors that may or may not correlate with fertility treatment outcome. I should have a progress report out soon. However, I am still looking for women who are currently pregnant - not necessarily as a result of fertility treatment - and who would like to contact me about details of my research to see if they would like to take part. My email address is:

New Service is Top for the Charts
The Astrological Association of Great Britain is proud to announce that you can now speak LIVE to an expert astrologer. For an instant in-depth telephone consultation about your full horoscope call 0845 120 1416 or +44 207 436 9101

A few weeks ago, the Astrological Association of Great Britain launched this new, live fixed-fee, telephone chart reading service. It has since proved big hit with callers from all over the world. AA President Roy Gillett told Astro News: "I am delighted with the warm response that we have had. Once, if you wanted a reading of your full birth chart, you would have to struggle to find a genuine, reputable astrologer. Then, you would have had to make an appointment and travel miles. Now, at last, there's a quick and easy way to get your questions answered by a real expert - from the comfort of your own home." Mirror reader Julie Roberts from Rochester was equally enthusiastic. "I rang last Tuesday and spoke to an astrologer called Maria. Within moments, she was telling me details about my childhood that she could not possibly have known... then she said some fascinating things about my future.
