These have been complex months for our angered post-pandemic world, and so they have for me specifically. This year represents a doorway to major change, as I stand surrounded by uncomfortable circumstances but feel immersed within a stream of invaluable lessons. During this major turning point, combined transits of Saturn, Chiron and Uranus have coincided with the need to redirect my energy. Thankfully I understand the forecasted shakeup, as I could see it approaching for years. Things do not appear easier if you understand where your journey is taking you, but navigating in light, rather than darkness, is a priceless advantage.
With that said, let’s take a look at the current astrological scenario.
I know there’s concern about the China-Taiwan standoff. Let’s look at the big picture: the Saturn-Uranus waning square has been triggering China’s national Pluto in Leo. I wrote about this in late 2020 (Saturn-Uranus square: The World Changing); many of our modern nations were reshaped after WWII, and their collective seeds were planted while Pluto was in Leo. That was around the 1940s’ Saturn-Pluto conjunction in Leo. We knew in advance that the current geo-political landscape would have been heavily challenged by the Saturn-Uranus square of 2021-22, a trend which ushers us into the last quarter of this cycle, as we head towards the next conjunction in Gemini of 2032. That energy is currently affecting several nations around this confused world.
In my book ‘Mundane Astrology: Outer Planets Beyond Pluto’, I have explained about cycles in declination and how we are moving towards a phase of major reshuffling, as the patterns of the late 1700s are reproduced. One should be aware that massive shifts are slowly occurring, with the ongoing USA Pluto return, combined with the upcoming collapse/rebirth/transition of Russia in 2025/26 (Saturn-Neptune conjunction), as well as the building phase of China’s most recent reawakening (the 2020 Saturn-Pluto synod, its waxing square in 2028, opposition in 2036).
That’s all for now. For those of you who will be at the Faculty’s event in Oxford later on this month, see you soon!
