THE EDWARD HEATH HOROSCOPE
Former British Prime Minister Sir Edward Heath is front-page news today (4th August 2015). As Saturn finishes its final weeks in Scorpio, the sign to be associated with sex and power, it’s the right time to look at his horoscope. Innocent or guilty (and those involved with his charity are loyally defending him) destiny is knocking on all our doors. This historic cycle in astrology means issues long-buried under forgotten floorboards are being dragged into the light, so we can all deal with them.
Of all the factors in his horoscope which stand out, it is his famous series of yachts (all called Morning Cloud) which merit a closer look. And where they sailed to, and why. The Guardian reports, ‘A statement from the the States of Jersey police said Heath features as part of Operation Whistle, which was set up after the Jimmy Savile scandal and the Jersey care inquiry, which is looking into allegations of widespread abuse in the island’s care homes including the Haut de la Garenne children’s home.
“Sir Edward Heath does feature as part of Operation Whistle, currently investigating historical allegations of abuse in Jersey,” a statement from the States of Jersey police said.
CAPRICORN AMBITION – THE NORTH NODE IN HEATH’S HOROSCOPE
The astrological chart for Ted Heath is based on his 9th July 1916 birthdate at 11.55pm in Broadstairs. This data has a Rodden Rating of DD. The date is verified by by the UK government website and also by the BBC. The horoscope below tells us that even if the birth time is unverified, the position of the North Node in the ambitious sign of Capricorn would not change that day. And this was an extremely ambitious man. And a very successful one.
The North Node at 29 Capricorn describes the son of a carpenter who climbed all the way to 10 Downing Street and the job of Prime Minister. This horoscope (which still works, even though Heath has passed) is being triggered in September 2015 by Saturn at 29 Scorpio. (Click to enlarge chart). Heath was also born with Salacia at 4 Scorpio, Ops at 4 Scorpio, the Moon at 5 Scorpio, Fortuna at 13 Scorpio and Juno at 17 Scorpio. It’s a suitably watery horoscope for a sailor. And the astrological chart tells us this man is a mystery wrapped inside an enigma. At his core? Power and money. And, perhaps, sex, death, power and money – all the classic Scorpio themes. Only time will tell us if the allegations surrounding Heath have any foundation, but it is Pluto’s long transit through Capricorn in Heath’s Tenth House of status and career which will decide things.
THE HOROSCOPE OF JIMMY SAVILE AND RAY TERET
Jimmy Savile and his chauffeur Ray Teret (the latter is now in jail) also have horoscopes with important placements at 29 degrees, like Heath. And they are about to be triggered as I write this. Savile died before those who survived his abuse could see him in jail. However, astrology tells us that karmic punishment will arrive, September 1-17th 2015. Savile was born with Mercury either at 29 Scorpio or 0 Sagittarius, which means Saturn will cross 29 Scorpio, through to 0 Sagittarius, near September 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 8th, 17th September 2015. Ray Teret was born with Uranus at 29 Taurus, so Saturn at 29 Scorpio in this same time-frame (September 2015 and onwards) will hit all three charts, including that of Heath too.

EDWARD HEATH AND HIS YACHTS
Edward Heath famously commissioned five ocean racing yachts, all named Morning Cloud and carrying the sail number K2468. At 11.00pm on Monday 2nd September 1974, his godson 23-year-old Christopher Chadd tragically drowned when Morning Cloud capsized in a storm. Another man, Nigel Cumming, also died. Heath was absent. Exactly two years later, Christopher’s own brother, student Timothy Chadd, was killed by a hit-and-run driver in France. Another tragedy.
Edward Heath had been best man at their father Colonel George Chadd’s wedding. Lacking a family of his own (Heath never married) these two losses, two years apart are as close to a family loss as Heath experienced. This sad episode is clearly shown in what is a very watery horoscope, and particularly the chart patterns for 2015. Heath’s 23-year-old godson is pictured below in a story on the front page of The Daily Telegraph at the time. That horoscope is worth much deeper exploration. If you’re looking for a key to turn in the door of Heath’s psyche, this is it – according to astrology.
HEATH LOSES TWO YACHTS IN 24 HOURS – WATCHING NEPTUNE IN THE HOROSCOPE
What is really peculiar about the tragedy at sea, is that another yacht in the Morning Cloud series owned by Edward Heath was also lost in the same 24-hour period. The Age in Melbourne reported at the time (below), ‘The British Opposition leader Mr Heath has lost two yachts in 24 hours. Two men are believed to be drowned after his yacht Morning Cloud II capsized and sank off the Sussex coast late last night. Five survivors from the yacht landed at Brighton this morning in a life raft and are being treated in hospital. Brighton police named the men feared drowned from Morning Cloud II as Nigel Cumming, of Maidenhead, and Christopher Chadd, Mr Heath’s godson. Mr. Heath’s earlier yacht, Morning Cloud I, was also wrecked last night off Gorey’s Castle at Jersey in the Channel Islands.’
NEPTUNE AT LARGE IN THE SINKING OF TWO YACHTS
This is the horoscope for the loss of Morning Cloud, based on The Daily Telegraph report. I have set it for Dover. Neptune is part of a stellium in Sagittarius, where Saturn will transit next, after he leaves Scorpio. A time of reckoning for the long-lost Morning Clouds (both of them) is coming, August 2015 through 2016 and 2017. The mystery surrounding both Heath and his ill-fated yachts is due for a ruthless cosmic examination by Saturn. (Click chart below, to enlarge).
HOW THE TIMES REPORTED THE MORNING CLOUD TRAGEDY IN 1974
MR HEATH BELIEVES GIANT WAVE OVERTURNED ‘MORNING CLOUD’. Edward Heath’s ocean-racing yacht Morning Cloud sank off the coast of Shoreham, killing two men, one of them Mr Heath’s godson. The circumstances surrounding the sinking of Morning Cloud, Mr Heath’s yacht, were still obscure last night. Mr Heath’s view was that a giant wave must have hit the vessel…’ This combination of ‘obscure circumstances’, guessing games, clouds and giant waves has all the hallmarks of an historic Neptune transit in the horoscope of an extremely Neptunian man.
THE SUN NEWSPAPER. JERSEY. HAUT DE LA GARENNE CHILDREN’S HOME. THE YACHT
Writing in The Sun, Nick Parker reported on August 4th, 2015, “Claims have come to the attention of authorities on Jersey, where wealthy Heath often docked his yacht Morning Cloud. Like Heath, Savile was a regular visitor to the Channel Island, where the Haut de la Garenne children’s home was said to have supplied victims to sex fiends. Campaigner Carrie Modral, of the Jersey Care Leavers Association, said of Heath: “It’s said that boys would be taken from the home to parties on his yacht.”
The Sir Edward Heath Charitable Foundation said it welcomed the investigation “which we wholeheartedly believe will clear Sir Edward’s name”.
Labour’s Simon Danczuk, who helped unearth MP Cyril Smith’s abuse scandal said: “There can be no cover-up just because someone held high office.”
In astrology, Neptune is the planet which describes everything submerged, lost below the surface and under the radar. In the horoscope of the former Prime Minister Edward Heath we find Neptune at 1 Leo, Jupiter at 2 Taurus, the Midheaven at 2 Capricorn, the Ascendant at 00 Pisces and Bacchus at 0 Gemini. In September and October 2015 as Saturn crosses from 29 Scorpio to 0, 1 and 2 Sagittarius along with the North Node at 0, 1 Libra and South Node at 0, 1 Aries we will see patterns crossing Heath’s chart which can only happen every 29 years. We can zero on timing by looking at the inner planets and given that Mercury rules the media (along with letters, diaries, tape recordings, paperwork) the position of Mercury at 0, 1, 2 Libra is key. The Sun’s trawl through Scorpio from October 24 through November 22 may also (literally) turn out to be The Sun (newspaper’s) trawl through Scorpio stuff – sex, power, death, money.
THE UNITED KINGDOM CHART AND THE TED HEATH ALLEGATIONS
(Click to enlarge). This is the 1801 horoscope which is being triggered in the most intense way in September-November 2015, clearly showing that – innocent or guilty – Edward Heath’s destiny is also the country’s destiny. There are lessons to be learned about accusations of historic child sexual abuse, from media involvement, to the role of the police, to the abuse of power at the top by creatures like Savile. We all need to take a collective deep breath for this one.
