Women in Power

An interesting piece by British astrologer Marjorie Orr on women in power and Saturn/Neptune:
Saturn Neptune turning the focus on women

I'm glad that the UK will have some capable hands to steer it through choppy waters ahead; though Theresa May would not be my cup-of-tea, politically, as Prime Minister in ordinary times, these times are far from ordinary. She is now Prime Minister elect, just awaiting Cameron's visit to Her Majesty the Queen. Ms May will no doubt be visiting Buck House too. My recent post on Ms May and her astrology is HERE.

Great minds, they say! My piece on the subject of women in power is a little more 'tongue-in-cheek' than yours (well, a lot more actually!). I'm not sure who I'd choose in place of May - they're all tarred with the same brush in that party. Labour's Jeremy Corbin is becoming more my man by the day, but then I've always been one to support the underdog. Angela Eagle, Labour's leadership challenger, had her constituency office vandalized this week, and she had the effrontery to blame Jeremy Corbyn for not keeping his supporters under control. As he lives in London and her office is in Wallasey, Merseyside, it was a rather stupid statement to make. Hardly the voice of a prospective political leader.

Interesting mini May bio at The Guardian yesterday, and today more convo there about being the child of a vicar. The Andrea Leadsom motherhoood debacle seems to have catapulted her to the top, which is worth pondering since it seems highly unlikely any male candidates would have their childless state under the scrutiny of the media glare.

As you imply, she seems suited to the immediate task at hand. As a tepid Remainer, I think she'll have to tread carefully there. What a mess! I wouldn't want her job.

Personally, I am always concerned when a new leader emerges who has not been endorsed by the electorate; all the same, I recognize that calling an election right now would probably create even more chaos, especially in the markets, and that would not be a good thing.

Virgo is just happy to know the No 10 moggie isn't getting the boot ;P

In other news, I see Bernie has finally endorsed Hillary. I trust you are resting up in prep for RNC/DNC marathon ;)

RJ Adams ~ Yes, I've just read yours and commented. Good one! :-)
I see May as the best of a bad lot, capable and steady, if ultra-conservative. That latter attribute will help steady the markets for a while, which cannot be a bad thing.

Sabina ~ I did read that her father was a vicar, yes. Angela Leadsom, of whom I'd never heard until this week, seemed far too inexperienced to have to deal with the current crisis. I'm surprised she'd even have wished to do it!

Sometimes the right person just happens to be on hand for a bad job nobody else could manage successfully (Churchill, for instance in 1939). I've many times used the saying "Cometh the hour, cometh the man/woman". I suspect this might have happened once more. I hope so, for everyone's sake.

Re Hillary/Bernie - I watched online this morning (C-Span) - have posted about it, above. :-)
