NUPES

Last weekend was the first round of the elections for the French parliament, the Assemblé, which are always held about a month after the election of the president. In this first round, which is divided by district, all parties can participate, but only the numbers 1 and 2 will go to the second round. Whoever wins the second round, will get the seat in parliament. Now this first round has had a remarkable result, the NUPES party led by Jean-Luc Mélenchon has received more votes than the party of the recently re-elected president Macron.

The largest party in France has thus become an unadulterated left-wing party, which does not mean that NUPES will also become the largest in parliament because of the district system. What it does show, is that not only the populist right can count on the appreciation of the voters but now also the populist left. NUPES is the brainchild of Mélenchon who over the past years has become the face of the left that had already been declared dead, but is now experiencing a remarkable rebirth.  So it’s interesting to take a look at the chart of this left-wing leader, who is causing the Macron liberals so much trouble now.  

Mercury is very important in this chart because it is both Lord 1 of the person “in his life” and Lord 10 of the job. Mercury is very strong but in the hidden twelfth house. Through antiscion, however, he is “freed” from this malefic house and comes into conjunction with Jupiter, the planet of vision, politics and policy, which is in the strong seventh house. There is the connection with politics and it is a remarkable connection. It is an antiscion that may be seomthing be hidden or secret, but it can also indicate something that is not done in the standard way. In addition, both Mercury, Lord 1 and 10 and political planet Jupiter are retrograde, and therefore go against the usual course of events.

Fresh Red Fire

So here you can see why he is firmly left-wing and socially critical and not a smooth liberal. This Jupiter-Mercury conjunction falls on Alperatz, the head of the princess Andromeda, who is rescued from the Sea Monster (Macron) by Perseus, the knight on the Flying Horse. In his first house and therefore extra important is Saturn, who has just gone to his exaltation. Such a planet in the radix that has just changed the sign always gets extra emphasis as a special motive. Saturn is the poor and needy, who have nothing and who are going to be elevated. Mars, too, has just come out of its fall, the  fresh fire of the red battle has just been released.  

Labrum

His Sun essentially strong, in its own sign Leo knows how to be the leader and the placement of the Sun on the Hydra Heart Alphard gives him insight into dark emotional under-currents and how to use them. That this Sun is in opposition to the Part of the Sun, gives it even more power but as opposition, as a counterforce. The other Luminary the Moon is on the Descendant, the Moon is the people and listen to him, he certainly conveys emotion effectively. At the MC, we find mighty Betelgeuse, one of the main stars of the rugged hunter Orion and very good for success. On the Ascendant, Labrum falls, the Cup that must be filled at the source, connected to the search for the good and the beautiful in the midst of this earthly dirt. In radical left-wing politics, all of these factors can be bundled into one activity and if you find something like that, you’re going to do it!
