I went away yesterday for a few days, so here's a quick one. Gordon Brown has discussed royal succession reform with the Queen, backed by strong public support. At present, succession to the throne is weighted in favour of males, and you cannot succeeed to the throne if you are a Catholic, or married to one. This goes back to the Act of Settlement of 12th June 1701 (time unknown).

In the natal chart, we see Pluto conjunct North Node in Leo: the power (Pluto) of the King/Queen (Leo). And Sun in Gemini: the split between men and women, Catholics and Protestants.
The Progressed Moon is currently somewhere in Sagittarius, the opposite sign to the Sun, bringing change to that Sun. By transit, Uranus is squaring that divisive Gemini Sun. So a quick result is possible.
I'm in favour of the monarchy because it takes some of the pressure to be a superstar off the PM and lets him get on with his job. I think the US could also do with a monarch. Look at the way they love their celebrities, including that foreign royal, Princess Diana. Again, it would mean less nonsense around Barack Obama. With Sun in Leo square to Neptune, the more glamour that can be diverted away from him the better.
