The global ideological landscape is clearly influenced by a complex resonance of cyclical trends. This article will focus briefly on the interaction between three planets which are astrologically linked with the rise and fall of liberal movements.

Let’s start by making a simple observation: majority political consent is clearly seen to swing cyclically among society. In other words, there are phases which are predominantly right-wing oriented and others which are left-wing oriented. Can this be investigated through a study of planetary cycles? The answer is yes.

CYCLIC RESONANCE

In this article I will focus on the interactions between Jupiter, Saturn and Neptune. It takes these three planets respectively 12, 29 and 164 years to go around the zodiac. These three orbital periods give rise to three distinct synodic cycles: Jupiter-Saturn, Jupiter-Neptune and Saturn-Neptune.

  • The last Jupiter-Saturn conjunction occurred in 2000, and a new one is already within orb. It will be exact in a few weeks, in December 2020.
  • The last Jupiter-Neptune conjunction occurred in 2009, and the next one will be exact in 2022.
  • The last Saturn-Neptune conjunction occurred in 1989, and a new cycle won’t start before 2026.

Both the Jupiter-Neptune and the Saturn-Neptune cycles will reach their waning semi-squares in January 2021. This particular aspect will be analyzed toward the end of this article, because we should look into each one of these planetary combinations first.

ENDS AND BEGINNINGS

As specified in previous articles, the current Jupiter-Saturn conjunction will set the tone for the years to come, especially from a financial point of view. There is evidence about this particular cycle influencing European dynamics. However, let’s just stick to the fact that the actual December 2020 conjunction (early Aquarius) will make an interesting alignment with important features of the 1957 Treaty of Rome chart.

I would like to emphasize once more that the European Union is in for important developments. Once both Jupiter and Saturn finally shift into Aquarius, towards the end of this year, we may begin to clearly see that big changes are afoot within the Eurozone. Let’s not forget that the Euro currency is entering an important phase as well, as Uranus is now squaring the position it held in 1999. Having been launched around the last Jupiter-Saturn conjunction, the Euro will now undergo its ‘maturity test’.

By acknowledging the fact that a new Jupiter-Saturn cycle is about to open a new economic chapter, we also understand that its Aquarian signature may in fact give voice to a myriad of ‘freedom-oriented ideologies’. This very cycle is central to our analysis, because it is currently reaching its conclusion/renovation, under the current Jupiter-Saturn conjunction.

NEPTUNE AND LIBERALISM

A major turning point occurred around the end of the 1980s, when the bi-polarism between East and West in fact turned into a predominance of US economy. The fall of the Eastern bloc represented a watershed moment in modern history, considering the widespread reorientation which followed thereafter. Also around the same years, the Chinese economy consolidated and, after the 1989 unrest, the country fully established itself as an unshakable world power.

The planetary configurations of 1989 were quite complex, with a prominent Saturn-Neptune conjunction which acted centrally as a ‘renovating influence’ over the communist/socialist world. The same conjunction was accompanied by Uranus, so it became a historic triptych which in fact managed to revolutionize the Eastern bloc. The picture was completed by Jupiter making oppositions to the same triple conjunction in Capricorn. That was the beginning of ‘rebirth’ for the Eastern political world. Every beginning requires an end of some sort, and in this case it occurred with the fall of the USSR and the modernization/democratization of the regions involved. Since the Russian Revolution, each Saturn-Neptune conjunction has corresponded with important moments along Russian history. The conjunction of 1917 coincided with the revolution, whereas the one of 1953 was accompanied by Stalin’s death and the advent of a new chapter for Russia. The whole 1953-1989 Saturn-Neptune cycle eventually led to the disintegration of the USSR and a thorough modernization of the bloc. It may be quite interesting to see what the next conjunction of 2026 will bring. It actually bodes well for humanity at large, because it will be prominent in early Aries, forming unusual harmonious aspects to both Uranus and Pluto. The mid-part of this decade in fact promises to correspond with a giant leap for humanity.

Through a study of these cycles we can clearly see how left-wing movements appear to rise and fall around Europe as well. The early 1990s brought an end to Thatcherism, which had been dominating the continent with strongly conservative ideologies. This was obviously part of the 1989 ideological shakeup described above. Within a few years, the rise of Bill Clinton in America gave rise to another version of left-wing ideologies. As a reinvention of policies which are actually ‘foreign’ to the American spirit, Clintonism still remains as one of the most scandalous chapters in the country’s history. Clinton faded out of the political scene in the early 2000s, when Bush’s election brought a more conservative wind all across. The onset of ideological wars at the turn of the millennium in fact accompanied a return to nation-oriented policies, at least in the US. Interestingly, Clinton’s fading out of the political scene was accompanied by a new Jupiter-Saturn cycle which started in conservative Taurus, soon followed by the Jupiter-Neptune opposition phase. In other words, the ideological consensus swung back to the right under a new Jupiter-Saturn conjunction and the culmination of the 1997-2009 Jupiter-Neptune cycle.

JUPITER ACTING AS A POLARIZER

Jupiter, having the shortest of these three orbiting periods, acts as timing-factor. In this context, its influence may be likened to that of Mars, which often acts as a trigger for big events by transiting across slow-moving planetary configurations.

Interestingly, the Jupiter-Neptune conjunction of 1997 brought a liberal wave in the UK with the advent of Tony Blair’s administration, whereas the following opposition, as specified, corresponded with Bush’s arrival and warmongering actions. The widespread consensus swung back to the left around the next conjunction of 2009, when Obama got elected. At the 2015 opposition a new reorientation was experienced, while Trump was seeking to obtain his Republican nomination. Another revamp of liberalism will possibly come at the next Jupiter-Neptune conjunction in 2022. In another article I have explained how 2022 will represent an important turning point along the 2021-2025 US Presidency.

JANUARY 2021: TURNING POINT

The two Neptunian cycles here described will reach their respective waning semi-squares in January 2021. Both Jupiter and Saturn will in fact form a closing aspect to Neptune, with Saturn remaining within orb for a while.

This may suggest that we are reaching an important turning point along the current Neptunian synod. We may start to see a deep crisis affecting the liberal world after years of widely acknowledged predominance all across the EU. Also, what is occurring in the US right now seems to be deeply resonant with this impending shift. The widely-honored liberal world, which gained its wide consensus under the arrival of Obama at the last Jupiter-Neptune conjunction, is now facing substantial obstacles. It is evident that the consensus that liberals have been keeping up to this point is now abruptly disintegrating, due to the numerous questions being raised after the disputed elections. The US election crisis may in fact serve as the ‘reorienting’ factor which will eventually lead to a ‘rebirth’, and possibly ‘cleanup’, of the American liberal circles. It is important to understand that right and left-wing political views are simply social manifestations of opposing archetypes. Each archetypal dynamic determines a path of human evolution and, along its recurring cycles, is seen to expand and exhaust repeatedly. The expansion phase sometimes even corresponds with the rise of intense fanaticism, which eventually leads to a more abrupt fall and a total swing to the other side. This was the case with WWII and the years leading up to it, as well as the communist rule over countries which have now turned almost to the far-right.

As specified in this article, we may expect the see a renewed Democratic party by 2022, at the next Jupiter-Neptune conjunction, and possibly a deeper re-consolidation by 2026, around the next Saturn-Neptune conjunction.

The next few years will definitely be dominated by a very different flavor though. Uranian energy will be all over the place as the new year sets in, under the influence of both Jupiter and Saturn in Aquarius squaring Uranus in Taurus. What can be expected is a worldwide reformation of governmental structures, considering the deep Capricornian revelation which has been dominating most of 2020. The Jupiter-Saturn-Pluto triple conjunction in Capricorn has in fact been digging quite deeply into power systems and legislature. The trigger for such a deep global reorientation is obviously represented by the pandemic. The culmination of all this is currently unfolding, with the US Election crisis. The crisis, having been accompanied by the third and final Jupiter-Pluto conjunction is in fact the culmination and turning point of deep-seated legislative issues. The current turmoil is ‘unveiling’ a lot of hidden issues, and it will eventually allow society to jump into a renovated world.

We may soon begin to see the ‘useful’ side of this 2020 struggle, as the arrival of Aquarian energy will finally bring some freshness into this world.

Something went wrong. Please refresh the page and/or try again.

We have been through very thick fog indeed. In multiple spheres of life, the Neptunian glamour may have manifested in its most unrefined form. Under its influence, the mind gets caught in an endless and consuming fight between what seems ‘right’ and what seems ‘wrong’. The reality is hard to catch, and the Ego is often urged to take a stand, choosing what seems to be the most pleasing option. Neptunian transits are irrevocably shrouded in mystery and fascination. Also, the complexity of this archetypal force resides in its ‘fluid changeability’. The utopian projections of Neptune can range between unconditional attachment and sacrificial repulse. Under Neptunian transits and progressions one generally needs to be ‘needed’, because the Ego rediscovers its primitive side. Under the lack of a strong Ego-structure within the birth chart, the individual oftentimes rediscovers the urge to be taken care of, or to be admired unconditionally. Neptunian phenomena, which become cyclically manifest when this planet makes specific alignments with slow-moving planets or the Lunar Nodes, are characterized by widespread ideological battles. The collective is often urged to embrace a ‘belief system’, which is not necessarily religious in nature. The devotional aspect of Neptunian frenzy is quite obvious at times like these, when the masses are visibly engaged in ideological wars led by ‘redeeming figures’. This manifests on different levels, so there are many people who perhaps have found their own personal ‘redeemer’, the messiah who seems to please their deepest wishes and makes the vision of redemption a viable option. This is the very process that often leads towards utter disappointment and downfall.

Neptune is currently squaring the Lunar Nodes, and it is already practically stationary.

It starts moving direct again on November 29th

What are we actually learning from this?

This is a time of deep reorientation for humanity, considering the multitude of slow planetary events occurring between now and the beginning of next year. Neptune’s influence is most powerful at its station, so right now some groundwork is being done for society’s ultimate ‘redemptive’ experience. Redemption may occur on different levels, it may entail great sacrifice and the urge to accept some kind of deeper truth. The fogginess may be at its highest right now, in a society which does not really know where it is headed. As explained in previous articles, a major shift in mentality will be presented quite soon, probably before the end of the year. We seem to be actually rounding the bend of a prolonged period of extreme difficulty and darkness. With Neptune finally stationing direct one more piece is added to the puzzle and the road towards ‘salvation’ does become clearer. Our ‘need to be needed’ will hopefully be reassessed, and a shift from victimism to compassion will occur. Society’s deepest wounds and vulnerabilities are clearly being exposed under the prolonged station of Neptune. After a year of judgemental fervor and intolerance we are definitely in for a deep redemptive experience. That will most probably bring the universal judgement upon those who did not act in accordance with their truest purpose, and they will be offered the opportunity to look at their paths again with more honesty.

Soon, those who have been naively searching for the ultimate redeemer will gain clear vision and retrace their missteps. Disappointment is too often a by-product of enchantment.

Forgiveness remains as the ultimate path to victory right now.

A Quick Look Around the World…

The current square between Saturn and Uranus is triggering a cascade of social movements, as expected. How is the global landscape evolving?

A world so changed, the new dawn…

As we go through this extraordinary historic phase, we easily come to realise how drastically can both our collective and individual lives change. I’ve been quite busy over the last few weeks, barely managing to publish New Moon reports on this website. However, I should get up and running with my astrological work again shortly, […]

rebirth neptune uranus saturn mundane astrology consciousness social awakening 2021

After months of unprecedented restrictions and widespread fears, we are carefully but steadily treading towards a new age. As explained in recent articles, an upsurge of Aquarian energy will be significant from December 2020 onward. This is not to say that all problems will magically disappear, but simply that typically ‘Aquarian’ elements will dominate the global scenario throughout the next few years.

What is Aquarius all about?

For those who haven’t read my previous articles, I would like to offer a quick summary of the Aquarian realm feels like.

Aquarius deals with ideologies of a humanitarian type, but first and foremost it demands FREEDOM. Freedom of thought, speech, religion, etc. Those are the themes which the world is likely to vehemently start fighting for, as both Jupiter and Saturn enter this Airy sign in December.

Year 2020, with its Capricornian impasse and unnerving power-grip, has taught us so much about the preciousness of freedom. Everything often appears quite dull and unemotional when we look through Capricornian lenses. That’s not because this sign is ‘worse’ than any other one – in fact, the zodiac as a whole represents the totality of human experience. Today’s underlying issue (or blessing) is that three heavy planets have been conjunct in this very sign for almost a year. As specified in other articles, this has unearthed all those flaws which have been ruling societal systems at large. The global impasse has proved to be a blessing in disguise, because it brought to our attention all that constitutes ‘restriction’ and ‘blockage’. Not only has this occurred on a collective level, but also in each individual life. Depending on the House of one’s natal chart where the Jupiter-Saturn-Pluto conjunction has fallen, a specific area of personal life is likely to appear ‘messed up’ right now. That mess actually constitutes the building ground from which to start anew.

After a long period in which deep Capricornian ‘conservatism’ and ‘traditionalism’ have been heavily exposed, a great awakening lies ahead. This is not an overestimation at all, we shall see very soon

In such an ideologically divided world, what is ‘conservatism’? I’d say there is no clear answer to that. It is obvious that egalitarian ideals are rightfully powerful these days. On the other hand, there are people who claim that today’s world sickness is not primarily represented by sexism, racial differences and so on, but by the workings of an Establishment which deceitfully thrives on such matters. So many names are being thrown against one another these days. Both ‘neo-socialists’ and ‘conspiracy theorists’ claim to uphold the truth, but hardly can we see a glimpse of genuine thought in this world. Perhaps, after such a Plutonian-Saturnian nightmare, society can hardly accept the fact that ‘rational, fair understanding’ is rising so strongly. Remember, ‘freedom’ is going to be the main theme of 2021/2022. Related events will be all over the news.

In a world ruled by fear, uncertainty and sorrow, an agonizing economy struggles to see far ahead, and the people wholeheartedly wait for a change. What does ‘freedom’ actually mean in such a confused scenario? Is freedom represented by the breakdown of all recently-imposed boundaries or the unified adherence to those? Each one of us has his own idea, obviously. That is why it is actually hard to say what could actually be best for the future of humanity right now. No matter if one is an obtusely skeptical science-minded individual or a self-disillusioned guru-seeker. It is pointless to take sides politically when looking at cosmic configurations. Politics is man-made. Instead, the cosmic energies speak to the Soul!

What astrology can tell is that we will be asking for freedom, and quite powerfully. Saturn and Uranus will be at odds with each other for a couple of years (2021/2022), so let’s just be prepared for the climax of social resistance to what represents the ‘new world’. The Saturn-Uranus cycle is akin to the cyclical building-disintegration process of society. This means that in sync with its ebbs and flows, humanity is seen to reinforce structures or renovate. We are in for a period of hopefully constructive ‘exploration’ of ‘new life’.

Is that new life all about never-ending, widely-accepted COVID measures?

Is it about getting back to our ‘previous life’?

Who knows, it’s too early to say…

Given that the American Election seems to be pivotal for the direction this world might be taking in the near future, it may be quite insightful to look at the psychological features described within the birth charts of the two most popular political contenders of these times.

It seems like the country is seeing two Presidents at once. Considering the obvious level of polarization and ideological fuss, a good astrologer should probably try and identify the underlying patterns at play. What is actually generating such an extraordinary level of ideological polarization all around the world, and not only within the country concerned?

A quick consideration about both contenders’ 10th Houses might prove quite insightful.

Biden’s chart shows Neptune in Libra within the 10th House, forming soft aspects with both the Sun-Mercury-Venus cluster in Scorpio in the 12th and the descending Saturn-Uranus conjunction. Neptune is obviously a prominent feature of Biden’s chart, especially when it comes to his popularity. With the utmost clarity, we can see a Neptunian manifestation across his campaign. For those who have some astrological experience, it probably seems quite clear why he is widely accepted as a kind of ‘messiah’. Biden’s role is that of the ‘redeemer’ as of now. It is important to remember that Neptune is currently transiting across his natal IC, enhancing such archetype in his life. Neptune is known for its glamorous, messianic, redeeming, and often scandalous signature. Oftentimes a very thin, indistinguishable line separates ‘altruism’ from ‘deception’. In following his purest dreams of ideal well-being, the messiah oftentimes becomes the architect of his own downfall. This is pure astrological theory, and it goes away from any political consideration. Biden’s chart shows a lot of ‘hidden’ content, with both the 12th and 8th houses being occupied by significant planets. This does NOT mean he carries a negative chart, simply because nothing is negative in astrology. Such features should just drive the psychologically-inclined astrologer towards a specific question: is Biden conscious enough to positively utilize all the hardly-manageable energies he carries within? Neptune connects with the Descending Saturn-Uranus conjunction, so his close collaborators have access to his ‘holy grail’ of messianic redemption. How much can we trust his connections? Biden is able to use his relationships as a way to Neptunian success; that may literally indicate proneness to being utilized by others. We know he’s not been going through an easy life at all, as it would seem obvious with such a chart. Would he use such knowledge in favor of the collective? Plutonic charts may carry a great deal of manipulative power, and this needs to be taken into account. It is obvious that this world needs to take care of its wounds right now, and it has been said that he can bring that ‘healing’. Maybe, but it’s hard to believe. Anyway, it is not this article’s purpose to answer that question. Interestingly, the word ‘healing’ is often hooked onto people like Biden, who was born under a prominent Sun-Chiron aspect. However, the story may not be as simple as it seems. Remember, the boundary between bliss and disappointment is always thin, especially when dealing with ‘messiahs’ and ‘gurus’ of any historical age. This may be an irritating statement, but it constitutes a psychologically meaningful question which may determine the direction of humanity’s future path.

Trump’s chart shows a very different picture. Obviously, it is archetypally opposite. The stark difference between those two personalities determines the social polarization which is consuming the world at large. Trump is a Uranian individual. His 10th House hosts a flamboyant Sun-Uranus-North Node conjunction in Gemini. His reputation is linked to changeability, irrationality and the breaking of existing boundaries. With this configuration, genius is often mixed with madness, activism goes along with anarchism, speech may enter dangerous grounds, words may be unrestrained. He was born under a Lunar Eclipse, so he is a master in dividing people. Sun-Moon natal oppositions represent the ultimate divisive force in a person’s life. He is driven by discord, but the fundamental principle here is Uranian. His mission is to break from the past. It is a Uranian person’s ultimate ‘goal’ to be rejected and labeled. He is playing the role of the ‘outsider’.

Whether the ideals promoted by either contender are ‘good’ or ‘bad’ is something which will be clearly understood years, or maybe decades, into the future.

It is obvious that history is really in the making, under the interesting confrontation between these two starkly different contenders. As specified already, the upcoming planetary transits are likely to bring a lot of interesting news.

Now that both ends of the collective psychological spectrum are clear, who seems to represent the revolutionary future suggested by the upcoming cosmic configurations? As specified in previous articles, the planetary scenario of the next few weeks promises to bring unexpected developments.

This is good food for thought, I believe.

healing realization consciousness awakening astrology uranus aquarian age

No doubt the world yearns for healing at this time. We are all very confused and incredibly tired of this never-ending battle. This article focuses on the energy of these very days which, astrologically, are seen as pivotal ones.

On November 17th Mercury opposes Uranus for the third and final time this year. Why is this transit so important?

Let’s look back at the past two hits of the same configuration in order to identify any patterns. The first hit occurred on October 7th, whereas the second (retrograde Mercury) on October 19th. Since early October this wave of dissatisfaction and information polarization has been accelerating indeed. The trend was at its highest under the Uranian Full Moon which occurred by the end of October.

Divisive opinions have been accompanying the current Mercury-Uranus standoff

The final hit will occur tomorrow, when Mercury finally moves across the 8th degree of Scorpio. It won’t clash again with Uranus for a while. These very days may actually bring a literal ‘release’. Such ‘unlocking action’ may be unexpected, shocking and sudden (Uranus). Let’s not forget that Mercury-Uranus interactions can also give rise to genius and interesting developments too. Mundanely, the opposition may affect trade, transportation and the media (Mercury). Whatever the actual manifestation of such energies turns out to be, it will represent forward movement. No matter how uncomfortable.

Does this mean we are done with this exhausting storm? I don’t think so.

Let’s now look at the positive sides of this whole story. Mars has just turned direct and it is now gaining momentum slowly but nicely. Mercury, almost clear from its irritating opposition to Uranus, is by now moving fast enough not to block our thinking and plans anymore. Jupiter has ‘overtaken’ slow-moving Pluto, therefore their final conjunction has occurred. They are still close in orb, but we are now in the descending phase of a long transit which has deeply changed this world. So, the triptych in Capricorn is moving forward at different speeds, and Pluto remains behind. We are now moving towards a Saturn-Jupiter conjunction, which will occur at the Winter Solstice in December (read my previous articles for detailed information about the astrological weather of the coming months and years). Venus will clear its squares to the Capricorn cluster (Jupiter, Saturn and Pluto) by mid-week, and this will decrease the level of Cardinality at play. Mars won’t be clearing Aries before January, so our desire to move forward and build up the worldly momentum again still has to overcome certain obstacles.

Each fast transit across the four Cardinal signs has obviously created a ‘disturbance’ to the Capricornian theme of the year (Jupiter-Saturn-Pluto conjunction). This is how a dominant challenge, represented by any powerful slow-moving planetary configurations, gets revitalized throughout the months in which it is active.

The clear ‘energy shift’ which can be identified in the skies will unfold as follows:

  • Venus clears the Capricornian cluster by mid-week
  • Jupiter and Saturn make a conjunction in ‘freedom-oriented’ Aquarius on December 21st
  • Mars goes past all of its ‘slow’ squares by the end of January

This simply suggests an impending ‘shift’ of global ideology. We are on the verge of some kind of plot-twist the details of which are not yet clear. We shall just hope that the world at large will be able to embrace the healing opportunities that are about to manifest. Astrologically speaking, it seems quite hard to envisage a long period of darkness like the one which has been ruling the past 9 months, dominated by fear and restrictions. Those elements were archetypal manifestations of the unusual Capricornian pressure imposed on this world. That pressure will fade soon. It will turn into ideological zeal and unpredictable shakeups within society. From a collective psychological point of view, a shake-up whatsoever is what will probably have the power to ‘unlock’ the deep-seated impasse which has been restraining the world at large so far. That very process can potentially initiate the healing phase for humanity.

Metaphorically, these days feel like trying to move a huge rock. The static inertia of that rock is significant, so it takes a lot of effort and time for it to gain a considerable speed. Likewise, once it is running, it will be quite hard to stop that stone from rolling down the hill. I’d say, that clearly describes the Saturn-Uranus energy which will dominate years 2021 and 2022. As specified by Melanie Reinhart in her famous book ‘Chiron and The Healing Journey’, the Saturn-Uranus interaction is linked with Chironian processes. The incredible instability represented by this planetary combination often represents the ground upon which ‘healing’ can occur. Saturn-Uranus storms urge us to depart from those patterns which do not serve the ultimate purpose of life, driving us towards unity and realization. The healing journey is painful and it oftentimes sets us apart from the rest of society. However, it is through that ‘ordeal’ that the human spirit is urged to look at existence in its purest form. Realization can only occur by surrendering to the ultimate will of nature.

Never lose your faith, a divine plan is unfolding and a new world has just been born!

A very interesting situation is unfolding in the USA after such a controversial election. As the world watches with mixed feelings, the country remains uncertain about its future. This article will focus on the archetypal war at play, analyzing the collective psychological scenario in detail.

Let’s start off by defining who the two contenders really are, astrologically speaking. These remarks do not absolutely indicate preference toward or the superiority of either candidate. The analysis simply provides a psychological outlook over these two men.

mundane astrology trump biden synastry natal chart election eclipse
Inner Wheel: Donald Trump (June 14th 1946, 10:54 AM Jamaica, NYC)
Outer Wheel: Joe Biden (Nov 20th 1942 8:30 AM Scranton, PA)

The incumbent President Donald Trump is a truly Uranian individual. Born under a Sagittarian Lunar Eclipse, his Sun stands in Gemini, on a tight conjunction with both the North Node and Uranus. A 2nd House Stationary Jupiter forms beneficial trines to the Gemini cluster from Libra. Rising Mars in Leo appears so prominent and plays a very important role in this fight. Both Mars and Pluto are within his 12th House, and this is a very important detail. Many more important factors are represented within his natal chart, but these are the ones which currently concern us most. The overall picture suggests a very dynamic personality which tends to go against the current (Uranian potential). The signs involved in his Luminaries’ opposition suggest extreme intellectual/ideological polarization is part of his life. His Ascendant configuration indicates the embodiment of a warring, self-centered attitude. Both Scorpio’s rulers sit within his 12th House; no wonder why he has so many enemies. There is a lot of darkness behind his back, and this has ancestral roots as well. But that’s another story.

Joe Biden has a deeper, less dynamic personality. His Scorpio Sun squares a Chiron-North Node conjunction in Leo. He has a loaded 12th House, where we can find the Sun, Mercury and Venus. Saturn is placed in his 7th House of relationships. Biden’s descending Uranus is evidently projected onto others; interesting to see how he psychologically hooked it onto Trump’s revolutionism! A similar process was at play in 2016, when Clinton represented the Scorpionic part, while Trump played the Aquarian one. It may be argued that what Trump psychologically disowns represents Biden’s life path and vice versa. Trump has a dark 12th House, whereas Biden is forced to embrace his own 12th, because it contains a highly personalized Sun-Mercury-Venus conjunction! This is a clear indication of how Biden’s Scorpionic personality is Trump’s alter-ego and vice versa. Hardships in Biden’s long-term connections are something which tends to manifest regularly. Descending Uranus and 7th house Saturn are powerful presences in his chart. Also, he tends to attract strong, life-changing personalities and ends up cooperating with them.

Interestingly, Biden’s Chiron-North Node conjunction is aligned with Trump’s Leo Ascendant, whereas the Sun-Mercury-Venus triptych in Scorpio stands on Trump’s MC. Biden’s emotional, deep (and perhaps darkly transformative) approach addresses Trump’s personal approach to the world at large. Another interesting manifestation of this archetypal war concerns the way the two candidates carried out their respective campaigns. While Biden chose the introspective, subdued approach akin to Scorpio (staying in his apartment, organizing drive-in events, raising awareness on the dark side of the pandemic), Trump faced big crowds in a defiant and free-spirited manner, in alignment with his Uranian personality.

What emerges from the Trump-Biden synastry is a remarkable level of psychological polarization. While Trump naturally takes on a fighting/reactionary role, Biden acts as a ‘wounded messiah’ for the community. We are actually witnessing a clear manifestation of the archetypal clash between Chironian/Watery energy and Fiery/Uranian instinct. How powerful this whole combination has turned out to be! The divide which separates these two charts from each other has manifested all across the country; the current political war goes on with an extreme level of ideological polarization. Evidently, there is no easy way out of this whole story for the community, especially because the USA as a nation is entering its Pluto return and second Neptune opposition.

CONFUSING TIMES AHEAD

Considering the astrological features at play, the one who remains in a building phase is Donald Trump. This obviously goes against all odds and does not even remotely reflect the widespread opinion. However, let’s not forget how irrational the coming days are likely to be.

Trump is going through a powerful Nodal Return, and his Sun will soon be eclipsed. Directed Uranus stands on his natal Ascendant. The Capricornian cluster of slow-moving planets has been opposing his natal Venus-Saturn conjunction in the 11th, however it has also been forming important soft aspects with his MC/IC axis.

In close alignment with Trump’s natal Venus-Saturn conjunction,we can find the following midpoints (22-26 degrees of Cancer): Mars/Uranus, Mars/North Node, Uranus/Ascendant, Mercury/Pluto, Venus/Saturn, Sun/Mars, North Node/Ascendant, Sun/Ascendant. That’s a total of 8 midpoints! No wonder why we are assisting to the culmination of a presidential earthquake. All those midpoints are representative of quite personalized energies, because they contain inner planets and angles. The long oppositions made by the Capricornian cluster (Jupiter, Saturn and Pluto) have been imposing immense difficulty upon his working life and political circles (11th House). This configuration indicates as though most of his chart is called to action in front of the powerful oppositions that are occurring this year. Theoretically, this indicates he could emerge toughened, but there is immense destructiveness in the transits at play. His Secondary Progressed Ascendant will soon shift into Scorpio, and this suggests that whatever happens, his personal approach will get more focused and deep. Either for good or bad, we do not know how it will turn out. Let’s look at Biden’s transits.

Biden’s most powerful transit is that of Neptune across his IC. Now, many of you will remember old accusations had surfaced earlier this year, almost jeopardizing his run for the presidency. Back then Neptune was making its first contact with the natal IC. It is extremely important to remember that Neptune will station direct this month, and it is still very close to his Meridian axis. Theoretically, what this transit can bring is ‘dissolution’ of roots and bonds. How this can play out materially is a big question. It may just act psychologically over the person, by creating both euphoria and illusion. What we can be sure about is that ‘illusion’ and ‘deception’ are present in Biden’s life at this time. This is obviously a life-changing transit, considering the length of Neptune’s orbit, and it acts very silently over a long period of time. With Neptune crossing one of the angles, a person is generally urged to make a real sacrifice, leaving something behind. Not only does this address ancestral, private issues, but it also has resonance over one’s social status.

The Capricornian cluster is currently opposing Biden’s natal Jupiter in Cancer. That Jupiter stands within the 8th House so, apart from being traditionalist, it relates to complex and deep issues. Jupiter relates to one’s morality and oftentimes one’s legal battles. This astrological affliction is currently manifesting through lots of claims against Biden. Evidently, past issues won’t stop coming up until both his natal Jupiter and IC are free from planetary afflictions. Biden’s Uranus/MC midpoint is conjunct natal Jupiter. This means that the Capricornian cluster is also opposing that midpoint. This cosmological configuration can suggest that huge obstacles powerfully block or delay one’s career ascent. With Saturn and Pluto involved, there are power battles and coercive force involved. The post-election legal turmoil is occurring under the final, powerful and investigative Jupiter-Pluto conjunction. Obviously this may also relate to political dynamics that we do not know much about. How fascinatingly Scorpionic this whole story is!

The incredible, mirror-like synastry between these two charts is playing out quite powerfully these days. One example is the following dichotomy: Trump’s Luminaries and Nodes being lit by a Nodal return and Biden’s Meridian axis being squared by the transiting Nodes. Astrologically, the former is entering a very outwardly-oriented phase, whereas the latter gets urged to perform a thorough reorientation in his life.

Biden’s Saturn will be eclipsed by the end of November, whereas Trump’s Sun will be eclipsed in December. The former suggests increased responsibilities but, considering Biden’s Saturn-Chiron-Node configuration it may actually represent setbacks and renunciation. Trump’s Sun is being already squared by Neptune, and this is obviously a consuming transit. This may play out through a real wave of illusion and consuming relationships, a generalized erosion of one’s reputation and strength. However, it is hard to give more strength to Biden’s condition right now, especially as Trump is coming out of a prolonged period of productive dynamism which involved his natal MC/IC axis. Also he now has the North Node transiting his 10th House of career and social status. Transiting Saturn will stay within Biden’s second House for quite a while. This transit generally suggests financial losses or, at its best, considerate reorganization. It is not a magnifying transit, financially. Saturn is about to enter Trump’s 6th House of service, together with Jupiter. Not a power-building transit either, yet it generally coincides with the adoption of a cause, a higher mission to be carried out. If against all odds he gets reelected, he will likely carry out a powerful cleanup action within his circle, which will deeply affect the GOP and the White House. Let’s not forget that this transit may also affect his health.

MARS STATIONS DIRECT IN ARIES

Mars will soon station direct at 15 degrees of Aries, in opposition to Trump’s Jupiter-Chiron conjunction in Libra. Without taking sides, and trying to keep maximum objectivity, it is undeniably true that Trump has been involved in lots of legal proceedings and a real war on him has been unfolding throughout his presidency. This tendency to experience legal attacks is clearly written in his Jupiter-Chiron conjunction within the egalitarian sign of Libra. Mars’ station may prove pivotal in the newly initiated legal battle on ballot counting. Mars will station direct in just a few days, under the final Jupiter-Pluto conjunction. This in fact aggravates the situation, and brings out the merely Scorpionic side of these days. A deep purge is expected to follow. This may play out legally, politically, socially, ideologically, medically and so on. There will be information coming out, and this may be related to many situations which are currently unfolding all over the world. What we can be sure about is that the ‘peak’ in COVID numbers is again occurring in sync with the Jupiter-Pluto dance. However, Mars won’t clear its squares before Inauguration Day. In fact, after such a retrogradation, which has been hitting the Capricornian cluster via a set of squares, the unexpressed anger which is likely to resurface will unleash incredible amounts of energy. This trend won’t subside before late January.

MERCURY OPPOSES URANUS

On November 17th Mercury will oppose Uranus in Taurus. This third and final opposition between the two planets will occur in close alignment with important features of the White House’s chart. Interestingly, the opposition will be followed by a Scorpio New Moon. The New Moon will conjunct Trump’s natal IC and Biden’s Sun-Mercury-Venus conjunction. All eyes may be on Washington during those days. A lot of information may be revealed (Mercury in Scorpio) and sudden turns may be taken.

TWO MAJOR ECLIPSES

The upcoming Gemini lunar eclipse (November 30th) will address the media. It will be all about information, and it will bring a surge in media-related activity. The fact that it will fall on national Uranus may suggest times of widespread unrest. Interestingly enough, it will be aligned with Rudy Giuliani’s Sun-Uranus natal conjunction. The end of the month promises to be pivotal with regards to the judicial standoff that is going on. The Solar Eclipse which follows (December 14th) will be ideological in nature. Falling in opposition with national Mars, it will contribute to stirring up massive amounts of anger and dissatisfaction. The visionary power of Sagittarius will combine with Neptune’s dissolving and messianic influence. Under a prolonged Nodes-Neptune Mutable square, this Solar Eclipse comes with great challenges. It brings a vision, and a faraway reality enters our range. It will totally revolutionize a fearful and exhausted world. By that time, a real ideological war may be started! Hopefully this will only manifest intellectually, and not through fanaticism and violence. Let’s not forget that such eclipse will fall across Trump’s natal Lunar Eclipse-Uranus combination. Extreme ideological polarization will continue to build up and possibly get out of control. Each eclipse sensitizes a zodiacal degree and its force remains active for years. Whenever faster-moving planets like Mars transit over those degrees again, the eclipse’s message resurfaces. It is quite unlikely that Trump will fade out into the darkness of oblivion, right now that his Sun-Uranus path is being lit. For more on eclipses read this article.

As stated previously in this blog, the upcoming Jupiter-Saturn conjunction in early Aquarius will powerfully set the tone for the years to come. How this will play out is still uncertain.

In summary, we can expect many twists and turns occurring before we get to Inauguration Day. Obviously, this article goes against the currently accepted views, yet what the astrological scenario suggests is filled with extreme volatility. We may definitely expect a turnaround, during times which have the potential to bring a real shift in the COVID question. We should not forget how 2021 represents a year filled with revolutionary spirit, rather than occlusive blockages. We are entering strongly Aquarian/Uranian times. The months to come will bring in a new flavor, which is chiefly intellectual and ideological. Considering this, and against the widespread vision, such Uranian power has actually been raised by Trump, through his controversial cleanup and revolutionary policy. Let’s not forget how the current anti-establishment political fever is part of a grand scheme, represented by the transit of Pluto through Capricorn. Since the 2008 economic crisis, the Establishment has been attacked multilaterally. The situation won’t resolve at least until late 2024, when Pluto will finally establish itself into Aquarius.

Biden seems to represent change and progressivism but, astrologically speaking, this is not the case at all. The deeply emotional, introspective Scorpionic/Chironian force of his chart actually promotes quite a different energy. When looking at mundane astrological configurations, one should try and get the overall sense of the times to come. Under such a global scenario, it is quite likely that Trump will continue to dominate the scene. Again, this article is not meant to stir up further political divergence, rather to raise awareness on the deep psychological dynamics at play within society. The best is to remain collected and watch the whole story objectively, trying to avoid getting biased by the powerful energies of these times.

Sending much love to a great country which is now going through very complex times!

We can deem ourselves lucky to be living through such eventful times. The birthing pain of the new society is a necessary requirement right now. We’re standing at a major turning point in history. Steven Forrest used to talk about the ‘Capricornian Awakening’ back in 2018, whereas astrologer André Barbault forecasted a phase of generalized chaos for 2020/2021. I see a planetary awakening of ‘lightforce’ occurring all over. The spiritual world obviously saw it coming, yet a large part of society has not yet tuned into the ‘rising energies’. To better understand this phenomenon, this article casts some light upon the worldwide upheaval, without diving too deeply into complicated astrological jargon.

IMPLICATE & EXPLICATE ORDERS

Existence works through a binary system: both an implicate and an explicate order of things constitute the two facets of this mechanism. Scientist David Bohm introduced this concept in the 1980s. Human society is now standing at a turning point of its natural awakening of consciousness. This is because the community is rapidly awakening to the presence of such implicit order of things, realizing at large how the underlying existential patterns mirror all physical manifestations on Earth and around the Universe. The philosophical, astrological, psychoanalytical, artistic and spiritual fringes of society have never doubted about all this. However, the interesting part here is that a disproportionate number of individuals is now ‘tuning in’ to deep-lying, higher frequencies. What is such collective fervor all about? Why is this all manifesting in 2020?

There are countless ways of analyzing this theme, at least in part, with the help of rational thought. As an astrologer, I am keen on observing how historic planetary alignments coincide with major turning points in history. A lot of astrological information appears in this blog, and it explains in detail how the current society is transforming. The unusual buildup of slow planetary forces in one small portion of the zodiac observably correlates with times of major upheaval in history. Astrologer André Barbault spoke at length about the ‘Planetary Index’, a concept which has been around since the early 1900s and which refers exactly to the same concept. A similar congregation of planets happened in the 1300s, during the Black Death, as well as during each of the World Wars. However, the latter two events were accompanied by planetary alignments of a lesser tightness than the current one.

Major planetary congregations come at times in which major perturbations occur within society, temporarily destabilizing the collective balance and urging towards generalized change

DESTRUCTION OR REBIRTH?

The destructive/regenerative power of the World Wars was already enormous, so what can we expect from the current times? It is already becoming quite evident that the world is in for another major ‘collective realization’. Undoubtedly, each challenging phase in history has turned out to be an opportunity for future growth and rebirth. The ‘old’ fades away and the ‘new’ emerges. Confusion rules the world at large right now; the people are not sure as to what represents the ‘old’ and what constitutes the ‘new’. Many people are not sure where ‘Light’ currently resides, as opposed to what kind of ‘Darkness’ is afflicting the world. The cosmic vibrations resonate powerfully during times such as these. In fact, a rapidly growing number of people experience an ‘enlightening’ effect in the private sphere of individual life.

Though everybody realizes that something major is occurring, yet not everyone manages to see the light toward the end of this dark tunnel. Those who are luckily ‘tuned into’ the higher realms of consciousness do have a clearer vision of the times ahead.

FEAR AS A DEFENSE AGAINST THE UNKNOWN

Darkness is fear, and psychologically it pertains to the chthonic world. The mythological Underworld remains cracked open for widespread infusion of fear (read my previous article ‘2020: an Extraordinary Turning Point‘). Like the story of Dante sailing through the underworld Stix river guided by Virgil, the global community is now compelled to make a trip into the darkest corners of human existence. As specified by famous astrologer Liz Greene, Plutonic phenomena are undoubtedly distressing, yet they herald times of growth and development. Indeed, the Plutonic world presents humanity with the painful experience necessary to make that ultimate transition towards a renewed existence. Jupiter, Saturn and Pluto in Capricorn ‘dominate’ these times; a situation which is aggravated by the angular closeness of both Neptune and Uranus.

THE VISION OF A NEW SOCIETY

The whole global disorientation is not going to fade away anytime soon. However there is light of the shiniest type beyond the curtain. Through successive phases, or ‘waves’, the world will transition into a new state of generalized consciousness. This does not absolutely mean that everyone will embrace a spiritual or philosophical path. We are simply at the dawn of a shift which will affect the global mentality at large.

Around the end of December 2020 or the beginning of January we will be assisting to a great new wave. That wave is not likely to be one of fear and restrictions, but of realization and hope. It is pointless to spend energy on ‘guessing’ future events; it is enough to be aware that something will shift around those weeks, quite powerfully. The world seems to be stuck into a spiral which only leads to darkness, hopelessness and fear. Those days will strongly address all this. How it will occur is uncertain, but we will witness something major.

It is expectable that such new wave will pent up conscious energies worldwide; such movement will have the power to ‘erase’ pre-existing structures throughout the next few years. How this will turn out is not a matter of today, and it will be manifested in due course. The work of Universal consciousness is unveiling a complex process of ‘collective rebirth’ which will push society into a completely new world!

EURUSD Financial Astrology Horoscope Finance Market Volatility

The stress imposed by next year’s planetary configurations suggest that an important phase is approaching for the Eurozone. We can expect some kind of ‘reorientation’ to occur within the single-currency realm. This may involve deep financial processes and the underlying structure of the European economic system. As the next Jupiter – Saturn conjunction approaches, the EU feels the wind of change.

Astrologer André Barbault explained in detail the resonance between the Jupiter-Saturn cycle and the overall balance which governs the Eurozone. Almost a century of personal observation and research over planetary cycles made him a very respectable astrologer. His insight remains with us; it helps mundane astrologers all around the world to continue along the path of meaningful research.

As he envisaged years ago, the Eurozone will face a moment of reassessment at the next Jupiter-Saturn conjunction. The same revolutionary spirit ruled the markets around the turn of the new millennium. The last conjunction brought out a new, powerful currency that challenged the market. My observations lead me towards a total agreement with Barbault’s statements.

2021: EUROZONE UNDER STRESS

The Euro chart will be under a certain degree of planetary stress throughout 2021. Its rigorous, well-structured Venus-Saturn square will face the unsettling influence of transiting Pluto in Capricorn. Reaching 26 degrees of a Cardinal sign, the latter will heavily contribute to a Euro-shakeup. We may expect Europe being challenged to make reforms and readjustments throughout the next few years. This will eventually lead towards the establishment of a new relationship between the currency and the rest of the market. How this might affect the global market is uncertain; however, there is a high possibility that the various currency pairs involving the EUR will resettle to different levels.

CYCLICITY OF THE MARKET

In 2008, during the economic crisis, the EUR/USD spiked to 1.6. Extreme perturbation of the system was followed by a rapid downturn. That fall was preceded by a phase change in the declination cycle of Jupiter. Interestingly, another phase change occurred in 2013/2014, and a heavy EUR/USD downturn followed again. That fall resettled the pair at less than 1.15.

This year has been particularly challenging for the global market, and the outcome of such a prolonged impasse is still uncertain. Astrological observation can perhaps give us further insight. Recently there has been another phase change in the cycle of Jupiter, because it reached maximum southern declination around the beginning of 2020. With a prominent Jupiter/Saturn conjunction approaching, another important resettlement for the Eurozone is expectable. If the pattern will repeat itself, the EUR/USD may end up taking another significant downturn.

Other factors come into the same equation, such as the alignment of such conjunction with the Eurozone chart’s Neptune, which in 1999 occupied the early degrees of Aquarius. Also, 21 years have passed from the launch of the new currency, and Uranus now stands on a square to its original position. The interesting fact is that Saturn will join in the ongoing square next year, during the last quarter phase of the mundane Saturn-Uranus cycle. The Eurozone may be in for a remarkable reformation.

The entry of Pluto into Aquarius in 2023/2024 will represent the apex of transformation, and possibly stress, for the Eurozone. Those years may bring worldwide destabilization, as it happens with every slow planet’s sign ingress. The event will be preceded by an inflating Jupiter-Neptune conjunction in Pisces which will fall upon the Eurozone’s Jupiter. We may expect an abnormal pouring in of funds into the market before the actual entrance of Pluto into Aquarius, which is likely to rattle the markets at large.

All in all, considering the planetary stress imposed upon the Eurozone chart, temporary destabilization is more than likely for the currency. Considering the heavy effect of both the pandemic and the Brexit deal struggle over Europe at large, it may be quite interesting to see how the continent will weather the storm financially. Also, the outcome of this complex American election will definitely set the tone of the market for the years to come. Considering the challenges which await overseas finances as well, a steady outcome for the EUR/USD might not be easily foreseeable for the near future.

Americal Civil War Horoscope Mundane Astrology History Society Evolution Awareness Research

Mundane astrology helps us understand history better by looking at the complex tapestry of planetary cycles. The law of universal resonance affects existence at large, therefore whatever happens in the cosmos is reflected upon individual and collective life. American history has been characterized mainly by two opposing societal dynamics: egalitarianism versus differentiation. To better understand this sociological fundament, we’d better start off our research from a basic analysis of the 1776 chart of American Independence.

As stated numerous times in my articles, the Mutability of Mars square Neptune within the US national horoscope is highly indicative of how social movements rise, grow and eventually fade across the country. Numerous other elements are to be considered within this historical horoscope, but for now let’s just stick to the predominance of that Mutable Mars-Neptune square, and the sparkly presence of Uranus at 8 degrees of Gemini.

Demonstrably, the various presidencies have been characterized by important planetary configurations which involved 8 and 21 degrees of Mutable signs (with the obvious allowance of a few degrees’ orb). This means that during eventful times (including elections), both transits and natal configurations of the chosen presidents have featured prominently across those very degrees. Configurations involving those degrees within the most influential presidents’ natal horoscopes have been linked with the country’s fate. This fascinating study can give us a lot of insight on the historical perturbations of the American society.

Abraham Lincoln and the Nation

Lincoln was born under a visionary Saturn-Neptune conjunction in Sagittarius squaring a pungent Pluto-Mercury conjunction in Pisces. All this was aggrandized by the presence of a compassionate Jupiter in Pisces. The whole configuration features across the range of 3-22 degrees of Mutable signs, therefore creating and important connection with the horoscope of American Independence. Lincoln’s natal square in Mutable signs stands as the astrological signature which explains his political approach and the cause for which he sacrificially left the nation to a renewed destiny.

The Civil War and the Confederacy

The Battle of Fort Sumter, which ignited the sanguineous civil war in 1861, broke out under a combined square between Mars, Saturn and Uranus acting across 3-9 degrees Gemini-Virgo. The Saturn-Uranus cycle was then on its waxing phase, and Mars appears to acted as a trigger for the intense configuration. With national Uranus sitting at 8 degrees of Gemini, the country was going through it first Uranus return. This explains the escalation of ideological fights across the territory.

Earlier that year, on February 8th 1861, the Confederacy had been established. The Southern States declared their unrecognized bond under the same Saturn-Uranus configuration, and a feisty Sun-Jupiter opposition across Aquarius-Leo. The connection between the Saturn-Uranus cycle and the onset of the American Civil War is obvious. Also, we can see how any major activation of those Mutable degrees (5-25 of Gemini-Virgo-Sagittarius-Pisces) tends to spark both revolutionism and outrage within the nation.

The Future of the USA

The configurations at play during a specific historical phase cyclically repeat themselves, often reawakening old issues. An interesting configuration will form in the skies within the 2020-2030 decade, and it involves the same actors: Jupiter-Saturn and Uranus.

In April 2024 a Jupiter-Uranus conjunction will occur at 21 degrees of Taurus, on an area of the zodiac which squares the feisty Sun-Jupiter opposition of the Confederacy. That year may see a powerful resurgence of secessional claims. Interestingly, the conjunction will occur during the next presidential campaign. The Inauguration chart for January 2025 carries a powerful Sun-Pluto conjunction which may indicate a transformative leadership. Possibly the entrance of Pluto into Aquarius will bring a new wave of widespread activism, and it may firstly manifest with a major popular awakening within the USA. The importance of the years (2021-2025) leading to the next presidency lies in the occurrence of a Pluto return and the second Neptune opposition for the nation. As specified repeatedly in other articles, the first half of this decade will represent a time of major reassessment and metamorphosis for the country. That social imbalance will most probably lead to the great shakeup which will characterize the second half of the decade.

The next Jupiter-Uranus cycle reaches its waxing square in 2027; an important event which will coincide with the nation’s third Uranus return. That Jupiter-Uranus square will powerfully activate 8-10 degrees of Gemini-Virgo. Saturn will be at 27 degrees of Aries, on its waxing square to national Pluto in Capricorn. A powerful pattern will emerge, recalling issues which seem to have been buried under the mask of a ‘modern’ nation.

These interesting configurations seem to suggest that a major transformation will reach its full extent during the second half of the decade. Are we nearing the bend with regards to the unity of the States? Astrology suggests that the cyclicity of time has brought the country to a phase that will give prominence to the the existing divide between different States. At some point during the next decade me might even witness the end of their unity as we know it. History may ask that a new balance be established within the country. This might also suggest that the USA will lose its seat as the world’s leading economy before the early 2030s. Another cyclical shift of power towards the East will most probably happen as a consequence.

Abraham Lincoln Memorial Statue USA Washington DC 2020 Election Horoscope Mundane Astrology Sybley Chart

The astrological community has been looking at some interesting planetary configurations occurring on Inauguration Day in January 2021. Can astrology really tell us something about the upcoming US presidency? Regardless of who wins what appears to be this century’s most controversial election, a very heated mandate awaits the next President Elect.

Let’s start by looking at the 2021 Presidential Inauguration chart, cast for January 20th 2021, Noon time, Washington DC.

US Presidential Inauguration 2021 Astrological Chart Horoscope Washington
US Presidential Inauguration

v9.0.26

A striking feature is the presence of a complex planetary configuration in Fixed signs. The Sun-Saturn-Jupiter-Mars-Moon-Uranus combo acts over Aquarius-Taurus with a tight orb. What does this all mean, astrologically? The bottom line here is that whoever wins the election will drive the country along times of important change. During the next presidency, old patterns will be challenged and an utter collapse of well-established ideologies might occur. It appears as a very heated configuration which will raise a lot of popular discord, considering that the Moon in late Aries is part of the same square. The new presidency will be inaugurated under a first quarter lunar phase, which suggests that a process of ‘reedification’ will be in act over the next few years in the USA. This may indicate a nationwide crisis which involves both the political and popular front. In other words, we may even expect the ideological discord between different federal states to evolve into a real secessional fight.

VOID-OF-COURSE MOON

The astrological community has suggested that this presidency might encounter issues along the way because of the Moon being Void of Course at the time of the Inauguration. In fact, the Moon won’t enter Taurus before 1:55:54 PM EST, which is well beyond the usual period during which the ceremony is generally held. Assuming there will not be any delays on that day, we may see such consideration as a valid one. However, I believe we might need to look at slower transits to assess an event of this kind.

SUN-SATURN CONJUNCTION

It is worth looking at the position of the Sun with respect to Saturn’s. The Sun stands 3 degrees ‘behind’ taskmaster Saturn. This immediately suggests that, by Secondary Progressions or Solar Arc Directions, the Sun will move into a close conjunction with Saturn in 2022. Such is a consideration of extreme importance, we should not underestimate it. In August 2022 the progressed Sun will reach the Sun/Saturn midpoint of the Inauguration chart, closing in towards an exact progressed conjunction with Saturn in 2024. This suggests that the second half of the presidency might be filled with important challenges.

It is also worth looking at the positions of Uranus and Pluto within the Inauguration chart. They both occupy Succeedent Houses, and by transit they will move towards the angles of the chart. Interestingly, they won’t clear the angles of the Inauguration chart before late 2022.

Uranus crossing the Ascendant may suggest nationwide revolution, while Pluto crossing the Midheaven envisages a deep metamorphosis within the ruling class

WHAT CAN WE LEARN FROM ALL THIS?

We might expect an important situation will develop during the first year of the presidency, reaching full scale in 2022. It may well develop into a nationwide challenge by the end of the year. What might happen is not the answer we should seek right now, because the purpose of mundane astrology is that of raising awareness about large-scale societal cycles in history, and not about guessing the future.

However, we can be sure such situation will impact the country’s leadership, and primarily the President. The 2021 Inauguration horoscope definitely envisages a direct confrontation between the ruling class and the people. This is evident because of the forceful square between that rising Moon-Mars-Uranus conjunction and the Sun-Jupiter-Saturn combo in Aquarius.

This whole story may play out in many ways, yet we may expect that such a complex planetary interaction will not be an easy one to deal with for the White House.

An interesting pattern emerges by looking at the 2022 Capricorn Solar Ingress chart.

2022 Capricorn Solar Ingress Mundane Astrology Chart Horoscope Washington
2022 Capricorn Solar Ingress

Representation made with Solar Fire v9.0.26

The Sun appears on an Angle, afflicted by Jupiter. This also means that 0 degrees of Cancer is rising, a mundane indication of extreme importance. A Moon-Mars opposition acts over national Uranus closely squaring the Ingress chart’s Meridian axis. Also, the Lunar Nodes will then align with the Luminaries of the 1800 White House inauguration chart. That may be the most intense part of Pluto’s return and Neptune’s second opposition to their original positions within the 1776 national horoscope. Serious challenges may await the Presidency, and ideological issues seem to be involved. Foreign relations will be the main focus of that quarter.

A very important Jupiter-Neptune conjunction will occur in 2022, and it will probably be pivotal for the country’s political balance. A full exploration of the Jupiter-Neptune cycle is provided here.

MARS-NEPTUNE COMES BACK

In 2022 Mars will transit through Gemini, repeatedly stimulating an area of the zodiac which is going to be powerfully eclipsed in December 2020. In 2022 there will be another retrogradation of Mars, and it will occur in Gemini as well. That is a sensitive part of the USA Horoscope. The red planet will be forming a long Mutable square with Neptune in Pisces. That configuration will act powerfully over the national horoscope between October 2022 and March 2023. Of the three hits, the retrograde one occurring in November 2022 may be the most significant one. The interesting part of such planetary interplay is that it will be revolving around Trump’s natal Lunar Eclipse. Is he getting re-elected now?

To understand the energies involved, it is worth recalling the Mars-Neptune conjunction which fell at 20Pisces56 in June 2020. That configuration mobilized the masses and spread an insurrectional fever all over the world. There is powerful Mars-Neptune energy within the American Independence chart already, and whenever these two planets align with each other across 20-25 degrees Mutable we assist to historic popular mobilizations and the resurgence of secessional claims.

Definitely, the days ahead promise to be extremely complex and eventful. Hoping for the best in a newly awakened world…
