Uk Prime Minister Boris Johnson ws brought to the hospital in London yesterday evening  (April 6th, 2020) around 7 pm BST, where he is been given intensive care and possibly ventilation, due to his Covid 19 infection.

He is 55 years old and thus in an 8th house profection year. The lady of the year (LOY) is Venus, who also rules his Ascendant. She is very afflicted in chis chart, being peregrine, retrograde, combust and in a cadent house.

The co-ruler of this profection is Jupiter, who is in the 8th house. He is in aversion to Venus and the AC and is going to be opposed by the Moon, another significator of the physical body, besides the AC ruler and the profected AC ruler. This brings together topics such as health and life-threatening situations.

This also shows that the benefics are not helpful in this situation as they are both either essentially or accidentally afflicted while no other planet gives support.

Let’s now have a quick look at his Solar Revolution.

The AC is in Capricorn and its ruler is in the first house, retrograde leaving an opposition to Mars but applying a conjunction with the SN. The lady of the year Venus is in the 6th house of illness, opposed to a retrograde Jupiter in the 12th house. The Sun, ruler of the 8th, is in the 6th house of illness and Fortune is so, too. This chart also points to life threatening situations.

Let’s now consider the monthly profection of the SR. Since the AC falls in a cardinal (mutable) sign, according to Abu Mashar, we need to direct in converse order, one sign per month. Capricorn rules the entire year AND the first month, Sagittarius the second and so on. We thus count nine month (since the activation of the current SR) clockwise from Capricorn and reach the 4th house (end of things, grave) which has been activated on March 18th, 2020. Saturn is since then the ruler of the monthly profected chart, which, again, highlights his health situation, especially so because Saturn is in the bounds of Venus, the LOY and ruler of Johnson’s natal 8th.

Before concluding let’s check his transits, first on the natal chart and then on the Solar Revolution.Venus has just left her domicile and is now in Gemini, conjunct Johnson’s natal Mars, the malefic out of sect in his natal chart while she squares the transiting Saturn (ruler of the profected month). The transiting Nodes are conjunct their own natal positions and approaching the SR Venus

The Sun is opposed to Johnson’s AC, the transiting Moon is about to enter his 1st house.

The monthly profected AC ruler Saturn is conjunct transiting Mars and squares the natal Moon.

Now we check the transits to the SR..The AC ruler and monthly profected AC ruler has just changed his sign and left the 1st house and is now in aversion to his own sign, but still in his domicile.

The Co-Loy is approaching the Moon in the 1st house.

The LOY s is conjunct Fortune in the 6th.

 

As we can see, all of the charts indicate health issues and life-threatening problems.Boris Johnson will need all his strength to overcome this situation.

    1. Hi Paul,
      Abu Ma’shar writes in his “on the revolutions of the years of nativities” (cazimi press 2019):
      “An if these forur indicators were convertible signs, then they are turned from the position of each of them backwards, a month of ervery sign: and it si that you assign the place in whihc it is the first month, and the twelftsh sign of it to the second month, and the elventh signs sign from it to the third month (…) until the second sign from it belongs to the twelfth month. ” p. 558, 27

  1. Nicely laid out. Thank you. One thing that struck me, that I’m unfamiliar with, is profecting the months backward when the ascendant is cardinal. Can you please point me to which Hellenistic astrologer stipulates this…

    1. Hi Kieran, sorry for the delay of my answer.
      Abu Ma’shar writes in his “on the revolutions of the years of nativities” (cazimi press 2019):
      “An if these four indicators (he means the profected AC, profected SR AC, the ninth part and the profected lot) were convertible signs, then they are turned from the position of each of them backwards, a month of ervery sign: and it si that you assign the place in which it is the first month, and the twelfth sign of it to the second month, and the elventh signs sign from it to the third month (…) until the second sign from it belongs to the twelfth month. ” p. 558, 27
      I hope this helps!

      1. None of the earlier Hellenistic astrologers that I’m aware of spoke of this. Was it just Abu Ma’Shar? I almost feel like like the concept was added to make something work in hindsight, or if it was done predictively, was there evidence of it working, or are you still in the process of observation of its’ efficacy?

      2. well, Abu Ma’shar was one of the most well known and appreciated Persian astrologers of his time. I tried his method, as I already did in my article on Covid-19 in Italy too, btw.
        I am not aware of any other astrologer who directs in converse order, but if we don’t try those techniques, we won’t learn anything.
