Mars – Pluto and the Pandemic

We are halfway through this intense cycle. What have we learned over the last year or so?

The pandemic reaches a major turning point, as Mars and Pluto oppose each other in Cancer/Capricorn.

As I wrote last year on my website, the current Mars-Pluto cycle started in late Capricorn, the area of incubation where this whole nightmare originated. As the cycle reaches its culmination, the world visibly seeks  to drastically change its course and build new foundations.
The eruptive and dismantling force of this Mars-Pluto cycle was such due to the presence of both Jupiter and Saturn in Capricorn, back in March 2020. Also, the presence of Eris/Discordia in Aries has done nothing else than fuelling this multilateral fight.
In other words, this Capricornian impasse has occurred due to the extraordinary conglomeration of slow planets within the same area of the zodiac. That’s a well-known fact by now.

In late October 2021 the cycle will reach its waning square. Interestingly, the Mars-Pluto square will be preceded by a prominent Sun-Mars conjunction in Libra. The latter will culminate over Beijing. We can expect major political and economic developments involving China and addressing its responsibility within this whole story. Critical doubts against China arose during the prolonged waxing square of last autumn, with a wave of social and economic destabilization affecting major nations. Also, the US election dispute was another manifestation of the irrepressible energy that abducting Mars-Pluto waxing square carried.
During the current opposition we have heard more about the lab theory and the need to shed light upon the whole COVID story.
We can therefore expect to gain significant insight on the matter by the time we reach October-November, and we enter the last quarter.

In March 2022 the next Mars-Pluto cycle will originate at 27 Capricorn in triple conjunction with Venus, during the exact USA Pluto return. Neptune will still oppose its 1776 position, while the applying Jupiter-Neptune conjunction will continue to turn the global attention towards deeply-rooted social issues.

I've been researching astrology for almost a decade. A profound scrutiny of the human psyche is undertaken by looking at cosmic configurations; this provides the groundwork for any observation of the global trends which affect society at large. Fascinatingly, astrology tells us about the underlying resonance which exists between the pulsating vibrations of life on Earth and the interactions occurring in the cosmos. For a long time I've observed and searched for proofs of what drives the uniqueness of life on Earth; I do not look for answers any more, I just admire how evolutionary shifts reflect the relentless, intricate dynamism of the cosmos
