As May 2009 draws to an end and our Twelve Stage Cycle mini blogospheric tours of Kingston’s ancient zodiac comes to a close, Gordon Brown’s Blue Labour Government seems to be sinking with all hands as the Sun passes out of the Zodiac’s Second House of Money and Worldly Possessions.
Perhaps the Taurean Sun’s direct square by an Aquarian Neptune is at the heart of his difficulties. Neptune, after all, is the Planet of Unconscious Self Deception. And, anyone thinking that an economy completely reliant on house price inflation and over extended domestic borrowing would bring about ‘An End to Boom and Bust’, to quote the somewhat rusty former Iron Chancellor’s own words, is certainly guilty of self deception.
So, by way of celebrating an end to Boom and Bust Economics, with a bust fit to rival that of Operation Julie, I shall now usher out this present cycle in my regular monthly blogspot with an oft quoted nursery rhyme with clear Astrological associations:
‘Hey Diddle Diddle, the Cat and the Fiddle,
The Cow Jumped Over the Moon,
The Little Dog Laughed to See Such Fun,
And the Dish ran away with the Spoon’.
As I have already shown during the course of the various blogospheric extracts from my soon to be completed book on ‘Legendary London’, which can still be accessed from this ‘spaces’ page, whilst the Cat in the rhyme corresponds to the Sign of Leo, the Fiddle to Virgo, the Cow to Taurus, the Moon to Cancer and the dish and the Spoon to Gemini; whilst the Little Dog likewise corresponds to the constellation of Canis Minor. This considered, will the Sun’s transition through Gemini in the coming weeks see Plan Cameron’s Dish of even Bluer Labour than Blue Labour policies run off with Brown’s Spoon if the ongoing MPs’ Expenses Scandal forces a General Election in the wake of the European Parliamentary ballot destined for June 4th?
The answers are out there….truly out there…..
