Kishori again invites us 'to the radical withdrawal of projection', so we can integrate and overcome any jumbled up feelings or sense of overwhelm in relation to the other.

Aquarius is the natural 11th sign of the zodiac, representing our goals, gains, groups of people, and networks, including friends, associates, and society in general.

This is a gap in the zodiac, between Scorpio and Sagittarius; when we prepare for the worst (Scorpio) and hope for the best (Sagittarius) in relation to Brexit. Jupiter’s station in this gap reflects a breakdown and, as the biggest planet in our solar system, a dip in a sense of hope and optimism, particularly in relation to order and the economy.
