Astrogeographical position for morphogenetic field level 1 which describes the supraregional and international meaning of Canberra:  the government area of the Capital of Australia has one coordinate located at of highly magnetic, centralistic, royal fire sign Leo the sign of the sun, light and emotional self-expression. 2nd coordinate is at 20° of solid, conservative earth sign Capricorn sign of administration, laws, control and a typical indicator for government institutions. The conjunction of the Australian government with the 27°Caprícorn astrogeographical position of London – the “mother capital” of Camberra is an indication of the close ties to the Britsh government.

Todays`s election falls into the phase of the transit of Pluto conjunct the 20°Capricorn position of Canberra which is an intensely transforming, highly defensive if not over -defensive but also to some extent stabilizing transit transit.  This is due to Pluto`s role as the ruling planet of Scorpio the sign of perception indicating the reflex of mounting up fortresses and barriers for defense. But there is also another aspect of Scorpio which tends to assimilate, copy and take over the stronger sides of the confronted factors. This is the role of Scorpio and Pluto as the sign and ruler of alchemy and the fusion of conflicting or even antagonistic elements.

This transit of Pluto reached its first high in April 2016 and it will be effective until around December 2020.

The second important, really challenging and  potentially stressful transit is the square of Uranus to Canberra`s 20°Capricorn position between July 2014 and May 2017. Such transits are there to help the government reform or to help the people reform their governmment. As I have shown in my blogarticles about the astrogeographical positions of Berlin and  Washington periods in which governments are not put under stress by such transits from the outer planets are more make the government more liable to corruption and foreign control because governments tend to be more free to manipulate and corrupt the country during such periods. The examples here are the rising of Hitler and the George W. Bush presidency. In times of tense transits from the outer planets the positions of governments are questioned and their corruption becomes public.

Saturn`s transit over the 20° Capricorn positionand conjunct Canberry between February 2019 and February 2020 can be expected as a stabilizing  and regulative process in which the foundation for long – term solutions could be laid.

Mars in Scorpio in house 4 after his retrograde phase and the parallel with the Brexit vote

Mars the indicator of the capacity for new starts and clearing of impediments in Scorpio and in house 4 hints at stuck aggression, the urge to fight injustice and the most intense dogmatic pressure from the ruling classes and their institutions, The facts that Mars was so intensely related to the atmosphere, style and issues of the electional campaign during the Brexit and that the Australian elections were held only 10 days after the British referendum points at an intense, direct resonance between the 2 votes. Also part of this parallel is that the Australian and the British mass media and public opinion have been dominated by the same global player (Rupert Murdoch) over 40 years. This long-term radical indoctrination can be expected to have shaped the political and social climate in both countries destroying much of their potential for creative, autonomous solutions and developments. This disastrous legacy appears to have blocked the fuller potentials of the two country`s peoples.   And as the head of state of Australia is the british representative it is to be assumed that the dependence of Australia from the United Kingdom and Commonwealth were a central issue of this election.

The position of the Moon at 6° Gemini the sign of liberalism reveals the dominant role of manipulation, lies, agressive lobbyism and the role of the mass media which can be expected to decide the outcome of the election.

Uranus in House 9

Intensely related to the problematic issues and self-destructive attitude of Mars in Scorpio in house 4 is the position of Uranus in Aries the natural home sign of Mars in house 9. Uranus in house 9 stands for the incapaity and lack of self-confidence to make the decisions needed. House 9 the house of decisions as the 3rd part of the mental body stands for decisions taken for apparent success and paths already known from the past.  In case of an election it is a strong indication that the the vote will bring no perspective for a change.  And as Uranus is ruled by Mars in house 4 this could mean that the political, economical and cultural situation in the country tends to be stuck for a couple of years more as a result of the poll. This is also due to the fact that Uranus positioned in the house of being and feeling stuck (house 9) may not be ready to unfold the fuller potential of his urge for liberation, emancipation, self-finding and reconnection to the fuller dimensions of the country`s  potentials.

So although Uranus` transit is currently challenging the astrogeographical position of the Australian Government his role ín the chart for the 2016 federal elections appears as a strong indication of a  governement challenged and weakened by the manipulation through lobbyism rather than of the readiness to bring about the changes inevitably needed for a fresh new start.
