Crown King Queen United Kingdom Westminster Windsor Charles Elizabeth Mundane Astrology Forecast

A few months ago I wrote about the ‘royal’ flavor of the UK’s Progressed New Moon. Now that Prince Charles’ Progressed Midheaven is reaching an almost exact conjunction with Uranus, we should start wondering what’s in store for the Royal Family and its nation. To add more significance to that, transiting Chiron is going to be conjunct his natal Midheaven (13 Aries) quite soon. In January I specified how Charles’ Progressed Sun entering the 7th House, together with transiting Saturn and Jupiter, would at some point bring him more visibility. In June, Jupiter will station retrograde in the zodiacal area where national Pluto lies. This may prove to be an important astrological event for the nation. Last year’s Solar Return of Prince Charles (November 14 2020), cast for London, shows the Midheaven in conjunction with national Uranus, while the Ascendant is conjunct national Chiron. Return Mars is conjunct his natal Midheaven. This whole tapestry of astrological patterns emphasizes his social status and carries a Uranian/Chironian energy with it. There seems to be a sudden release of energy connected with this. We are looking at the symbolism associated with a profound healing experience for him, something which is linked with his parental connections, as well as his public stance.

This year, Queen Elizabeth’s Progressed Midheaven is at 26 Aquarius, and it squares her natal Meridian axis. Due to a natal T-Square, this brings Directed Neptune, Jupiter and Mars into an alignment with her Meridian axis. This means that the next months have the potential to carry enormous significance in her life, with events affecting her position in the world at large. Her Progressed Moon has entered Aquarius, reaching the degree of the recent Jupiter-Saturn conjunction, while her Progressed Ascendant is conjunct Venus in early Cancer, an area still quite sensitive to last year’s Solar Eclipse in Cancer. Her last Solar Return, which occurred soon after Philip departed, shows an important repetition of her natal angles. It is worth remembering that her 7th House Leo Moon had been eclipsed on January 31st 2018. Philip passed away when Saturn crossed the eclipsed axis this year (11 Aquarius/Leo). Saturn will cross that degree again twice, as Uranus will keep on squaring it from Taurus. There are multiple facts which suggest this may be a pivotal year for Buckingham palace indeed.

The composite chart between Charles and his mother shows a prominent Sun-Chiron-Uranus square across 11-13 Aquarius-Taurus. This is highly resonant with a lifelong empowering, yet potentially reactive connection between mother and son. Those very degrees are being powerfully stimulated by the current Saturn-Uranus waning square. When Saturn stations retrograde in less than a month from now, the emphasis may reach a peak.

Camilla’s chart, according to the reported time of birth, has similar angles to those of Charles. Her next Solar Return shows a prominent Chiron exactly at her natal Midheaven (12 Aries). In her Progressions/Directions we find something which strongly resonates with Charles’ astrological situation. Her Progressed Midheaven has reached a life-changing conjunction with natal Uranus in Gemini. Not only is this suggesting important developments which may affect her place within society, but it also refers to her partner Charles. Uranus co-rules her Descendant, so the basic symbolism here shown suggests increased visibility around her partnership. This is further emphasized by transiting Saturn currently going through her natal 7th House, as it squares transiting Uranus in her 10th. The amount of Uranian connections here outlined suggests an element of ‘suddenness’ within all this.

Months ago I found the 2021 Spring Equinox chart for London quite interesting. It shows Jupiter conjunct the MC at 19 Aquarius. That is also the degree of Prince Charles’ progressed Mercury. The latter rules his progressed Midheaven which, as I mentioned already, is now minutes of arc away from a conjunction with Uranus. The UK’s 1801 chart is showing Directed Chiron at 10 Cancer, in partile conjunction with the national MC, symbol of Government and Royalty, opposite the national Sun in Capricorn. The country is in for a deep rediscovery or reassessment of its roots, tradition and future path, especially if we consider that transiting Chiron is squaring the whole configuration from Aries.

Within this whole astrological scenario, the next two eclipses will fall into Governmental houses. The Lunar Eclipse of May 26th will fall in the 4th, whereas the Solar Annular one of June 10th will fall in the 10th House. The first one will highlight the Queen’s natal Angles. It is worth mentioning that in late May Mars will transit the 20th degree of Cancer, which was eclipsed in early 2020. That was when the country’s aristocratic 10th House Moon was last eclipsed.

I would like to add that the national Progressed New Moon mentioned at the beginning of this article will carry a ‘royally mystical’ Jupiter-Neptune flavor. There is a sense of dissolution infused with idolization here. The Progressed New Moon will fall at 16 degrees of Leo, in partile conjunction to Prince Charles’ prominent 1st House Pluto, co-ruler of his natal Scorpio Sun. Interesting to see that his harmonious, quasi-devotional IC-Venus-Neptune conjunction forms a sextile to that natal Pluto. There is feminine energy involved, roots, ancestry, a great legacy is symbolically transmuted here. One may wonder who and what the New Moon will put into the spotlight. Between now and the Jupiter-Uranus conjunction of 2024 a large window of change opens for Buckingham palace. Maybe such royal developments will occur in phases. We don’t know yet how these planetary energies can play out.

One question seems to arise naturally, considering the amount of astrological noise here explained. Are we going to see further news coming from the Royal Family?

Looking ahead at the eclipses which will occur in the next few months, pivotal changes seem to be ahead for the USA. In last year’s article USA Horoscope: a Long Presidency Ahead?, and a more recent one named A Tough Ride Ahead I described how, regardless of whichever party would end up ruling the American scene, several challenges lied ahead. This is mainly because the nation is undergoing two extremely sensitive evolutionary phases. The 1776 American chart of Independence is being sensitized by a Pluto return and a 2nd Neptune opposition. Profound racial, judicial, political, ideological, economic issues are currently plaguing the States. This is the beginning of a profound phase of transformation which will most likely bring extreme reformation to a country which has grown too divided.

The following is a detailed list of some important eclipses which will occur this year:

  • May 26 2021 : Total Lunar Eclipse at 5 Sagittarius
  • June 10 2021: Solar Annular Eclipse at 19 Gemini
  • November 19 2021: Partial Lunar Eclipse at 27 Taurus

A few points have to be taken into account. The Lunar Eclipse of May 26 will fall within two degrees of the President’s Ascendant and opposite national Uranus in Gemini. The second will square Biden’s natal MC/IC axis, which is already being sensitized by a long transit of Neptune. At the same time, the eclipse will be close to national Mars.

A pivotal Lunar Eclipse will occur in mid-November. What makes it important is the fact that it will oppose Biden’s natal Sun.

Now that we have the big picture at hand, we can ‘zoom in’ and look at all the astrological details of the coming seasons.

Starting from the May/June period, we can see how the consecutive squares of Mercury, Venus and the Sun to Neptune in Pisces will highly sensitize an already delicate social situation. Taking into account the national Mars-Neptune square, ultimate symbol of ancestral issues which affect and divide the masses, as well as the partile opposition of Neptune to its national degree, we can expect the resurgence of racial issues. It is worth remembering that 21-23 degrees of Mutable signs were heavily stressed during the 1st opposition of Neptune, which occurred in the 1860s. In Gemini – Virgo & American History I explained the connections between the Civil War and this particular transit of Neptune. Now that we are in the middle of the 2nd opposition, we are starting to see a new breakdown of social boundaries, a melting down of moral values, and a resurgence of intense idealism, at times stained with the blood of blind fanaticism or self-redeeming martyrdom. The Mars-Neptune question is a profoundly complex one in this country, and great respect should be paid to the efforts so far made by generations of all times to bring light into a seemingly un-healable territory. The Solar Eclipse of June 10th in Gemini will further highlight all this.

Jupiter is now on Aquarius’ anaretic 29th degree, almost ready to enter Pisces, where it will stay until late July. It will settle into the new sign for good by the very end of 2021. This means that the planet will soon take a short trip into Donald Trump’s 7th House of relationships. Is this going to give him more visibility? Interestingly, as Jupiter got fairly close to his natal Descendant, he launched a new platform, while Facebook upholds his ban. The transits of Jupiter and Saturn across his 6th House have taken him out of the scene, and surely addressed issues related to the very fabric of his ‘co-workers’, his party. Does this mean that Jupiter’s entrance into a ‘public house’ will boost his image again? Considering Trump’s natal rising Mars, the coming Solar Eclipse affecting his Sun-Uranus-North Node conjunction and Mercury soon moving retrograde across the same area, it may well happen in a particularly dramatic fashion. Under the Saturn-Uranus square, the archetypal war I’ve been writing about for months is still going on.

Particularly interesting to see that Biden’s natal angles are going to be prominently eclipsed this year. This may signify a lot for a country which is slipping into ideological and cultural reformation with great nervousness. Any eclipse can turn out to be either a pleasant or unpleasant event. It all depends on factors such as the nature of that eclipse, the life circumstances one is going through and the psychological predisposition towards the archetypes involved. This is not the focus point for mundane astrologers. When we look at large-scale patterns, the individual’s take on astrological events has to go into the background, because the evolutionary needs of a whole collective scenario need to emerge.

With that said, Mars’ hard aspects to this Lunar Eclipse may bring challenges and increased dynamism into Biden’s life. An important picture emerges in November 2021, under the Lunar Eclipse at 27 Taurus, which will tightly oppose Biden’s natal Sun in Scorpio. That may turn out to be a powerful alignment for him and the presidency. Several reasons support this idea. First of all, the power of this eclipse lies not only in its hard aspects to a Capricorn Venus which will in turn be opposing the national Sun, but also in the fact that triggering planets like Mercury and Mars will be following its footsteps right after. That lunar eclipse may show its message soon after it occurs. Casting the eclipse chart for Washington DC, we find an outstandingly prominent Pluto at the IC, just as it tightly opposes Biden’s Jupiter in the 8th House. Therefore, the mundane chart shows Biden’s Jupiter, chart ruler, strongly aligned with a very stressed meridian axis. I would like to remind the reader that 24 degrees of Capricorn was elevated in DC at the very moment of Biden’s Inauguration. We don’t know how these energies are going to play out, but Plutonian energies are likely to emerge from this lunation. The eclipse’s ruler Venus, as mentioned already, will be at 12 degrees of Capricorn. Its opposition to the national Sun will recall its still ongoing sensibility. This is because on July 5th 2020 a prominent eclipse occurred at 13 Capricorn, therefore opposite the national Sun. Such eclipses have generally brought pivotal developments within the country.

In November 2021 Biden’s secondary progressed Moon will have reached the 22nd degree of Pisces, opposing national Neptune. His pivotal role in the current Neptunian struggle of the USA will reach a critical stage. This is reinforced by the fact that transiting Neptune will again be conjunct his natal IC in November, while his progressed IC will still be in tight conjunction with natal Saturn. The stress upon his chart ruler Jupiter in Cancer will be enhanced by progressed Mercury’s opposition from Capricorn. Pluto’s current opposition is prompting him to face opposing forces and possibly to even question his own beliefs and judgement. That’s a typical expression of Pluto opposite Jupiter, however such dynamics are here quite private, given the planet’s 8th House placement within a highly Plutonian chart. In his Solar Arc Directions we find Pluto at 27 degrees of Libra, on a partile square to national Pluto. His engagement with the country’s metamorphosis is strong.

The Lunar Eclipse in question will be the culmination of the New Moon which will occur on November the 4th at 12 Scorpio, in partile opposition to rebellious Uranus. That lunar month will carry a strong Uranian/Plutonian signature. A year from the elections, strong Lunar alignments will bring outer planetary forces into direct focus. Important lunar phases tend to align with pivotal planetary patterns which feature within the nearest Solar Ingress charts. The Equinox chart of September 2021 shows a 10th House Venus in Scorpio opposite Uranus. That opposition will range across 13 and 14 degrees, therefore it will be stimulated by the November New Moon. Another important feature of the Equinox chart is the Descending degree, which will happen to be at 14 Cancer, in close conjunction to the national Sun. These patterns resonate along the same lines, addressing the presidency in autumn.

The November 1st 1800 chart of the White House features a prominent Sun-Moon opposition across the 9-10th degrees of Scorpio-Taurus. By the end of 2021 Directed Uranus will have reached 10 degrees of Taurus. Uranus is already transiting in that area of the zodiac, so the New Moon which will occur in November may set into motion important reformative dynamics. This whole picture suggests profound shakeups to the system. This may well manifest in a slow, unnoticeable way, but considering the nature of Uranus, this may not be the case. Also, the White House’s chart Directed Luminaries will be squaring the ongoing Neptune opposition, with the Directed Sun applying to a conjunction with national Mars.

On January 20th 2021 Biden was sworn in at exactly 11:49 AM. At that moment 10 degrees of Taurus was rising. Also, Pluto was at 24Capricorn50, in close conjunction with the MC. In November 2021 Pluto will cross that degree with direct motion. As specified in A Tough Ride Ahead, the succedent house placements of both Uranus and Pluto will constitute pivotal features for the current administration. As the two planets work their way through the 1st and 10th Houses of that chart by transit, important dynamics may evolve nationwide. The 10th House of a presidential inauguration chart loaded with such incredibly heavy planetary energies can be interesting and worrying at the same time. This whole picture suggests that the events of late 2021 may prove to be determinant for the Administration’s path.

The upcoming ingress of Jupiter in Pisces will potentially increase the global focus upon issues related to pharmaceutics, seafaring, oil/gas production and distribution. There is no point in guessing whether Jupiter will bring a positive or negative influence within those sectors. That’s old-style astrology.

Let’s start looking at things in a more evolutionary, open-minded way: each planetary ingress obviously requires adjustments at first. With Jupiter involved, early issues may relate to excess and over-inflation. Yes, a market surge could be expected too. This may already be visible during its short passage through Pisces between mid-May and July. Let’s not forget that Jupiter will settle into Pisces for good by the end of 2021. A darker side of this new astrological influence upon the collective may turn out to be a resurgence of self-defeating and conspiratorial tendencies.

We should start asking ourselves: what long-term lessons are we going to learn from Jupiter in Pisces?

Undoubtedly, as this new energy will stabilize itself globally, we can expect to see some sort of ‘collective healing‘ occurring. There is reason to believe that Jupiter’s one-year transit through Pisces will provide us with the necessary level of compassion and understanding to tackle some deep social issues. An interesting fact will be its meeting with Neptune next year. By that time, pivotal changes in the sectors mentioned above are likely to occur.

I would now like to look at a specific chart, for the sake of pure astrological research upon a recently discovered planetoid which is beginning to show its energy to the collective.

mundane astrology uk research covid pandemic

On January 4th 2021, at 7:30 AM GMT the first non-trial AstraZeneca vaccine was administered to an 82-year old man in Oxford.

https://www.bbc.com/news/uk-55525542

It might be quite interesting to look at the chart for that particular event. Despite the numerous themes our astrological analysis can take us through, I would like to focus on something which is extremely important.

The chart shows an exact opposition between Mars and the trans-neptunian planetoid Haumea. The orb of this aspect is just one minute of arc, and that’s pretty tight. I have important reasons to give enormous weight to this particular configuration, and I will explain them in this article. Haumea is a dwarf planet akin to Pluto, together with the recently discovered Eris and Makemake. I carried out some good amount of research on planetoids in 2020, and I think this news is going to provide more information about Haumea’s deepest symbolism.

In simple words, Haumea is related to ‘procreation‘. Back in the early 2000s, when it was discovered, it was given an exotic name. I am not going to explore its symbolism too deeply, because I intend to publish a more inclusive article on a famous Astrological magazine at some point. However I’ll just summarize by saying that I have found good connections between Haumea and Persephone’s mythological chthonian image.

In simple words, Haumea’s long planetary cycle is related to the very fabric of life, the genetic force. It also addresses our tampering with natural processes of both a small and large scale.

Many people who have engaged in struggles against the supreme will of Nature were born under prominent astrological configurations involving Haumea. Also, I have found this planet to be quite prominent in natal charts of famous researchers who in the past have ‘actively’ engaged with genetic/procreational processes, including abortion.

Let’s look more deeply into this chart. As specified, Mars forms a very tight opposition to Haumea; the latter has spent years in Libra, raising egalitarian and moral issues of all sorts. What strikes me most is that this opposition forms a partile T-Square with the Saturn-Pluto midpoint! In other words, Mars, Haumea, Saturn and Pluto are here connected along the 28th degree of three Cardinal signs. This is an extremely powerful astrological signature. Given the deeply dismantling and powerfully abductive power of any Mars – Saturn – Pluto interaction, this pattern is not the friendliest.

The Moon applies to a tight opposition with Neptune, also squaring the Nodes. That’s not the best sign in a chart of this type, adding more confusion than clarity to the whole picture. This is emphasized by the fact that the area between 15-23 degrees of Mutable signs is still being eclipsed in 2021. Many other features of an important type are clearly seen in this chart, but I would like to stick to the main signature, which is the Mars-Haumea-Saturn-Pluto configuration explained above.

With Jupiter in Pisces, I believe the pharmaceutical industry will have plenty of opportunities to look deeply into its statistics and data, reshaping its future strategy if needed. It is important to remember that Pluto and Haumea will be locked into a deeply-reformative waxing square for years to come (yes, Pluto is FASTER than Haumea, interesting isn’t it?). Our relationship with genetics and procreation is destined to evolve, with all sorts of issues surfacing for our scrutiny throughout this decade. From a purely astrological point of view, one can guess that the extremely challenging aspects of this particular chart are very well resonant with the controversial reputation this vaccine has developed. I guess there is more to learn within these patterns, and that we should not rush to immediate conclusions, especially considering that practically-unknown Haumea is the main signature of this chart.

This opens a whole ethical question about the impact of mundane astrological research. Again, we should keep in mind that these times are ruled by extremely charged planetary configurations, and that it is way too easy to get carried away through politicization, extremism and idolization of uncertain facts. In evolutionary terms, I like to see the whole mayhem of 2020/2021 as another cyclical perturbation within society, another phase of major contraction. Eminent astrologers like Andre’ Barbault had already written at length about this particular phase in history and its ‘Low Planetary Index’, comparing it to other periods of widespread dismantlement. For the greater good of a globally destabilized world, I do wish, as anybody else I guess, to see that this drug is ‘effective’ and ‘harmless’. Hopefully with the arrival of Jupiter into Pisces we will understand more about the current pharmaceutical rush.

I remember reading Celeste Teal’s famous book ‘Eclipses’ back in the fall of 2016. At that time I was spending a few pleasurable weeks in NYC, during which I alternated my trips around the city with hours of in-depth reading. The book had come to me at the right time, becoming so helpful that I think I devoured it in around 10 days. Still unaware of many large-scale astrological patterns, I became more familiar with the energy and meaning of eclipses. A major realization for me at that time, the fact that ‘triggering planetary transits’ reawaken an eclipse’s energy even years after it occurs still remains one of my most important research points.

Mars is now approaching another two-yearly ingress into Cancer. What makes this particular transit special is not its recurrence, but the fact that last year we had an important Solar Eclipse at 0 degrees of Cancer, one of the Cardinal points of the zodiac. Teal’s observations include data upon the major events of 2001/02/03, which included 9/11 and the Middle Eastern military interventions; all events which were concomitant with a similar astrological dynamic. It is worth remembering how an eclipse (whether Solar or Lunar) occurring upon one of these Cardinal degrees can be seen as a relatively rare occurrence. For instance, no such eclipses had occurred for around a century before the Cancer Solar Eclipse of June 2001 arrived. Instead, this century we have already had two (2001 and 2020), while the next one will occur in 2033 at 0 Libra (Solar Partial), followed by another one at 0 Cancer in 2039 (Solar Annular). The 2050s will bring three of such pivotal eclipses (in Libra, then Aries, then Cancer). What this picture suggests is that the 21st century may well be as pivotal as the 19th was. Looking back at the 1800s we can clearly perceive their major evolutionary signature, with the industrial revolutions, the birth of new social movements and, most importantly, the birth of modern nations. A whole article wouldn’t be enough to list the various aspects of social change experienced throughout the 19th century. However, one of the aspects which seems most significant to me is the way the Western world gave birth to new forms of collective coexistence, embracing republican dreams and reshaping the political balance. It is worth remembering how major philosophical movements and political ideologies were conceived during those times, the very same concepts which fecundated the darker side of the 1900s. It takes little to realize that the madness of the first half of the 1900s was after all rooted in the major social developments of the previous century. Marxist theories eventually developed into a multi-faceted political response to the utopianism of the mid-1800s, constellated by one of the most prominent Saturn-Neptune conjunctions of modern history. Whether we call it Leninism, Stalinism, Nazism or Fascism, those movements were after all rooted in the same mid-1800s utopian vision of a levelled society. From a detached perspective, we can clearly see how during the first half of the 1900s society was still experiencing the power of the immense cultural, technological, ideological and religious changes of the 1800s. How interesting to see that throughout the 19th century six eclipses occurred at 0 degrees of Cardinal signs.

Many astrologers still tend to excessively narrow down their research, avoiding the ‘big picture’. I understand that everyone’s research focuses on different aspects, and that some prefer to mainly deal with the day-to-day unfoldment of quicker planetary patterns. After quite a few years of personal research on eclipses, I deem it necessary to consider the big picture because, after all, the incidence of such astronomical events is embedded in the long-term setting of Saros cycles. Each cycle lasts for centuries, therefore I consider it quite reductive to excessively narrow down the timescale of our research on eclipses.

Mars as a trigger

One of the important facts of these years is the recurring reactivation of a cascade of recent eclipses which occurred in Cancer / Capricorn. The main actor is obviously Mars, with its two-yearly cycle. Some significant eclipses were in fact multiply activated in early 2020 by an extremely charged pileup of transiting planets in Capricorn. In December 2020: the Cosmic Shift I briefly outlined the role played by the forceful and regenerative Mars – Pluto cycle during this pandemic. Back in December 2020 we were at the end of a long 1st quarter phase, with all sorts of obstacles inflaming the global battle against the greatest ‘social perturbation’ of our times. Now that Mars enters Cancer, it will move towards its opposition to Pluto (June 2021), which may well represent another turning point along this unmanageable COVID story. This is because by mid-year this particular cycle will enter its waning phase. Let’s not forget that the COVID outbreak became a worldwide concern around the early stages of the current Mars – Pluto cycle, back in March 2020. I would like to remind the reader that China (founded on October 1st 1949) draws its force, militarily and economically, from a Mars-Pluto conjunction in mid-Leo. How interesting that the country has become a protagonist during the most influential Mars – Pluto waxing hemicycle of our times! The current Saturn – Uranus square will also trigger China’s sensitive Mars – Pluto conjunction over the next months.

What about last year’s Great Eclipse?

As soon as Mars enters Cancer on April 23rd, the degree upon which the Cancer Solar Eclipse of June 2020 fell will be stimulated again. What does this mean?

I invite you all to read again my article The Great Eclipse, in which I provided an in-depth explanation of the possible dynamics at play. For years, every subsequent major ingress into Cardinal signs may coincide with a reawakening of those energies, to a greater or lesser extent. This is what occurred after the Cancer Solar Eclipse of June 2001. Each subsequent conjunction or opposition of Mars reawakened the craziness of 9/11, as a global revision of national security measures went through subsequent stages. Needless to say, the events of 2001 changed certain aspects of human life all across the globe. The events of 2020 won’t be less impactful at all, I believe.

In The Great Eclipse I specified how, for several reasons, the event in question is geographically linked to the Sino-Indian question. One of those is the fact that both national charts carry pivotal planetary placements around the first degrees of Cancer. Especially the Indian Mars (Independence chart of 1947) presents a very irritable force within the region. The Eclipse of June 2020 fell at the Midheaven, as shown in the picture below. This reinforces the impact this particular eclipse may bear upon the Asian continent throughout this decade. There is a possibility that the border dispute, or any other issues related to both India and China, become prominent in late April/early May 2021. What seems quite interesting is that the 2021 Cancer Solar Ingress (Summer Solstice chart), cast for New Delhi, features Uranus at the Midheaven and Saturn at the Descendant. India has its post-colonial roots in a prominent Saturn-Pluto conjunction in mid-Leo (closely aligned with China’s Mars-Pluto conjunction). This means that India is going through a phase of major reorientation too. All sorts of social issues which have arisen and will keep on surfacing in the next few months will eventually be seen as the manifestation of the current Saturn – Uranus transiting square. This renovating, uprooting and revolutionary force will be sweeping across degrees closely related to the position Pluto held just after WWII. As I explained in 2020/30 – A SIGNIFICANT DECADE FOR HUMANITY, this means that our modern geo-political framework is in for some sort of revision. It is quite hard to see what’s in store, but over the course of this decade, many of the current challenges will prove to be major triggers for profound international changes.

Russia, the USA and their ongoing metamorphoses

In the early 2000s Putin entered the global scene. A strong leader who surely helped a country which was still recovering from its major reformation of the late 1980s. Putin was first inaugurated as president back in May 2000, under the second last Jupiter – Saturn conjunction. That planetary cycle ended in December 2020. It may not be a coincidence that the country is now facing major challenges, exactly 2 decades after the Putin era begun. Another important configuration which features in his first inauguration chart is a Fixed Waxing Square between Saturn and Uranus. We are now facing the Waning Square of the same cycle (read more on Saturn – Uranus Square: the World Changing). In other words, we are at the opposite phase of this reformatory cycle. Over the next few years the Saturn – Uranus square will be sweeping across Aquarius and Taurus, reaching the very degrees occupied within the inauguration chart. It may be quite interesting to see how the Russian collective scenario will evolve by the time Saturn reaches the 20th degree of Aquarius in the spring of 2022. Also, the Russians are undergoing a collective Saturn return, considering that modern Russia was established in the early 1990s. Last but not least, two major conjunctions are ahead for the socialist world, explained in Saturn-Neptune and Politics. Countries like Russia are currently moving towards the Piscean Jupiter – Neptune conjunction of 2022, and the 2026 visionary Saturn – Neptune conjunction at 0 Aries.

Those two important events will also relate to the current Democratic landscape of the USA. In fact, the current Jupiter – Neptune cycle began in 2009, when Obama was first sworn in. The cyclical nature of history is a fact which cannot be overlooked. On top of all that, the USA is going through its second Neptune opposition and its first Pluto return. As I wrote in several articles over the last few months, the country is at a major crossroads. The Neptunian side of this struggle is recalling all sorts of racial issues, such as what occurred back in the 1860s, during the first opposition. The Pluto return is something which we may need to closely observe and study, given its slow, covert and unprecedented nature. At an archetypal level the country’s inner landscape is set to powerfully shift, and we may see all sorts of deep-seated, hidden and unsolved issues come to the front. Pluto is closely related not only to crime, but also to abductive power. The constant rise of internal violence or external military interventions may be part of the picture. Let’s not forget how Plutonian Biden’s natal chart is, by the way. Moreover, his inauguration chart, examined in A Tough Ride Ahead, features Pluto at the Midheaven. That’s a sign of powerful dynamics and constant changes at play within the government during the next few years. Something to keep in mind. We just need to wait and see how these changes will manifest collectively. As of now, nobody really knows what lessons will be offered to Americans.

Over the next few years, several countries, including Russia and the USA, will be evolving and transforming from within.

Back in August 2017, in the midst of a very important phase of my life, I took part to one of the summer events organized by the Faculty of London. I spent an eye-opening week in Oxford, together with a unique international audience. I do consider that time as a pivotal stage of my intense journey towards metaphysics and spirituality. Embedded in the timeless setting of Exeter College, I felt I had just become part of an interestingly like-minded community, whose members I could easily understand, simply because we were all able to speak the same language: that of the skies. I can’t forget the moment when Michael Lutin, a renowned guest, gave his evening lecture in the college’s refined and old-fashioned auditorium. The American astrologer, with unique directness and pleasurable informality, expressed his valuable insight about 2020, which was at that time two and a half years away from us. He spoke of ‘survival’, and how the strongest individuals would soon need to carry the world towards a whole new age. Consequently he went on explaining the deeper side of Capricornian energy. His words sent chills down my spine, but that was nothing compared to what I feel nowadays every single time that lecture comes back to my mind. Amazingly, during that one-week event I was surrounded by people who shared my interest and concerns about a year (2020) which was after all not that far from us. As someone said at some point during those days, astrology is a calling and, once you’re in, life is seen through a different perspective. I am sure many astrologers very well understand how meaningful these words are for me, especially considering all that has been occurring around us over the last year or so.

Now, as the world visibly enters a new evolutionary phase, society struggles to adapt to a whole new way of living. The COVID-19 pandemic has shattered our foundations, undermining aspects of collective life which seemed to be as solid as rock, hurling the whole of humanity into a transitional period of historic importance.

A lot has been written about the myriad of astrological influences which have accompanied us through the last 15 months. Nevertheless, I deem it extremely important to primarily focus on how the awakening of deep Capricornian energy in 2020 determined an unprecedented impasse, characterized by extraordinary waves of fear and restrictions. The beauty of astrological thought reemerges at times like these, during which we realize how modernity and progress do not ‘immunize’ society from the archetypal storms which symbolically and periodically emerge around the zodiac.

To gain a clear picture amidst the ongoing confusion, it is very important to ‘zoom out’ and look at the long-term unfolding of planetary patterns.

Three majorly important conjunctions from year 2020 are to be noted:

  • Saturn-Pluto (Capricorn)
  • Jupiter-Pluto (Capricorn)
  • Saturn-Jupiter (Aquarius)

Since the occurrence of the single Saturn-Pluto conjunction at 22Capricorn46 in early January 2020, the world has been spiraling into a close fight with the invisible enemy we all know about. The three consequent  Jupiter-Pluto exact conjunctions were undoubtedly linked with times of ‘expansion and acceleration’ of this global wave of fear, sickness and legislative oppression. Under this aspect, which protracted throughout the whole of last year, the enactment of tough legislation became necessary for governments. At the same time, though lots of concerns were legitimately raised, it is interesting to note how the new Jupiter-Pluto ‘moral code’ became a painful but unavoidable experience. By the time the third and final Jupiter-Pluto conjunction occurred in November 2020, another wave of lockdowns started, obviously raising all sorts of mixed opinions, painfully deepening the social and ideological split which is still plaguing this world.

Back in October 2020 I wrote:

the last of these three Jupiter-Pluto conjunctions may well represent the ultimate shock which will finally start propelling the world towards a new direction.

Obviously, nobody knew which direction this world was set to follow from there onward. When we look back at those intense weeks of November and December, not only do we see the beginning of a raging political battle in the USA, but also the arrival of the first COVID vaccine. The official remedy to an unsustainable problem had finally arrived, together with another major spike in cases. There was great awareness of society’s desperate need to decisively turn the page, due to the lack of sustainability of such a prolonged nightmare.

However, the archetypal struggle we lived through during last year’s Capricornian buildup determined a massive impasse which is very difficult to erase, and which still carries all the characteristics of this Earthy sign. The Saturnian boundaries therefore erected have been acting so powerfully on us all. Human heritage and historical facts have also been profoundly challenged under the action of Jupiter, Saturn and Pluto in Capricorn. This phenomenon has manifested all around the globe, as an essential part of the ongoing process of social dismantlement and widespread metamorphosis.

On 2019 New Year’s eve Rick Levine posted his January 2020 forecast on YouTube. Speaking from Koh Phangan, he beautifully described what was yet unknown to humanity. He spoke of the ‘birthing of a new way of living’, referring to the upcoming and unusual pileup of slow planetary forces in Capricorn, the sign of the establishment and traditions. He made it clear that 2020 would soon become a major turning point, not less important than the late 1960s had been for society at large. I invite you all to watch that interesting video when you have time.

The aftermath: an Aquarian tale

The cosmic event most awaited by astrologers seems to have been the Jupiter-Saturn conjunction in early Aquarius. Back in October 2020 I wrote:

‘all that can be said is that it will surely set the tone for the years to come, determining an upsurge of ‘Airy’ energy, possibly at the dawn of a very dynamic period for humanity. With both planets shifting into an Air sign after all that has occurred, we may expect significant changes to affect the global scenario. This will likely influence the political, social, financial and ideological balance. Aquarius’ progressive approach will most likely create initial confusion in a world which still finds it so hard to gain the momentum it has so violently lost. As it is the case with every conjunction, oblivion will dominate at first, though the awareness of a new beginning will gradually emerge in the collective mind.’

One does not need to be an astrologer to understand how the sudden explosion of egalitarian, progressive and groundbreaking ideas was powerfully initiated right after Jupiter and Saturn moved into Aquarius. Major corporations and governments are now beginning to set new rules, establishing deep changes in law, finance, fashion and technology. I find it quite interesting to look at how the concept of ‘leadership’ is set to radically evolve. I personally belong to a hierarchical industry which has been suffering heavily throughout the pandemic, due to the unprecedented restrictions which were suddenly imposed upon the whole sector. The industry is now witnessing an unavoidable and most probably necessary transformation. In my opinion, all this is going to lead towards an important revision of old-fashioned patterns that have become unsustainable during this highly-digitalized and ideologically fervent era. For centuries, the maritime sector has thrived through the enactment of strong pyramidal control and excessive traditionalism. It has obviously been necessary and beneficial to maintain solid foundations, yet during the pandemic all sorts of long-standing issues eventually became exposed. Simply enough, the times are drastically changing, and the leadership styles so far broadly enacted and accepted across the industry may not be considered beneficial or appropriate by future generations. Open-mindedness lies in accepting and constructively understanding the current Aquarian wave which is rapidly and irreversibly sweeping all over the world. This is one example of how the pandemic will eventually be seen as a powerful trigger of profound social changes.

Going back to my astrological analysis, the period across 2021 and 2022 is going to be characterized by a forceful square between Saturn in Aquarius and Uranus in Taurus. This aspect is currently sweeping through 7 to 13 degrees of Fixed signs, interestingly stimulating to a greater or lesser extent the Leonine Pluto placements of all nations and institutions established during the second half of the 1940s, right after WWII. Within this group we can find India, China, Israel, North and South Korea, the UN and NATO. It seems obvious that the ideological foundations upon which they were founded are set to be drastically reviewed, possibly initiating an important reinvention of the post-WWII world. In broader terms, the current Saturn-Uranus waning square will represent the onset of another reorientation phase for the world at large. Affecting Fixed signs, the configuration will be accompanied by widespread resistance to change. The main challenge of the next few years will be that of finding ways to ‘let go’ of the past and embrace an early view of the future. The square is already reawakening buried humanitarian issues, challenging the ‘status quo’ of big nations and questioning the foundations of important organizations such as the UN and EU. The last quarter of the current Saturn-Uranus cycle will create the typical planetary crisis which initiates a redirection towards the next astrological cycle. By 2032, when the next Saturn-Uranus conjunction arrives, the geo-political scene may have changed a lot, and new treaties or alliances may have been discussed or established.

Piscean fluidity

Year 2022 will be accompanied by a Jupiter-Neptune conjunction in Pisces. This event may foster renewed diplomacy around the world, yet humanity may risk allowing for new utopianism and devotional fanaticism to rise. Given the Piscean emphasis of this socially-oriented new cycle, I do expect major developments to affect pharmaceutics, oil production and distribution, the maritime industry and the global religious balance. These themes may already gain some prominence during Jupiter’s brief passage in early Pisces around mid-2021, and then at its final ingress into this Water sign at the very end of 2021.

Leaving the ‘old world’ behind

The next few years will provide us with a cascade of important astrological occurrences. Considering both the upcoming ingress of Pluto into Aquarius and the progressive development of the Jupiter-Saturn cycle, it seems clear that the current social opening towards inclusion and renovation is just the beginning of a very long phase of ideological rebirth. Perhaps the main event will be the shift of Pluto into Aquarius in 2023/2024, with three consecutive ingresses (due to its retrogradation). We should not forget that the dismantlement of societal structures we perceived in 2020 was just the apex of Pluto’s action in Capricorn, where it had been residing since 2008. The long war to the Establishment, under its countless forms, has become uncontainable during the pandemic. However, it won’t be before Pluto finally moves to the next sign that we will leave certain outdated values and structures behind, to fully embrace a long battle for equality and progressivism.

Looking at faster planetary movements, we may expect any ‘new ideas’ reawakened in early 2021 to visibly challenge the status quo when Jupiter and Saturn reach their waxing semi-square in 2022/2023. By the time they form a square in 2024/2025, the world will need to face all kinds of challenges related to the ‘edification’ of a new collective morality. The major turning point will be represented by the long Jupiter-Saturn opposition period of December 2029 / October 2031, which is going to be analyzed below.

2026: so unique!

A pivotal moment seems to be represented by the strikingly unique Saturn-Neptune conjunction of 2026. It will be harmonically connected with Pluto in Aquarius and Uranus in Taurus/Gemini. Such a Minor Grand Trine between slow-moving planets is a rare occurrence and, given its harmonic nature, we shall probably be quite optimistic about it. By mid-year, the whole configuration will have developed into a trapezoid figure, with Jupiter in early Leo. We may start looking at the middle part of this decade as a time of widespread expansion and constructive opportunities. By then, the Planetary Index between slow planets will go beyond 180 degrees. After last year’s minimum, which coincided with extreme social contraction, we have to wait until the opening phase of 2026 to see the full extent of our new social potential.

Two major nations

The Saturn-Neptune conjunction of February 2026 will fall on the first degree of Aries, a mundanely sensitive point. Studies have shown how the Saturn-Neptune cycle has been closely connected with the rises and falls of socialism over the last two centuries. The latest conjunction fell in Capricorn and it was also accompanied by Uranus; this happened during the dissolution of the Soviet world. Perhaps the next conjunction, prominently placed on a very influential point, could herald a rebirth or revision of the same utopian socialist dream of a leveled society. Also, messianic (often controversial) figures tend to rise under such planetary influences, during times in which society seeks to turn vision into reality and vice versa.

By the second half of the decade, in the wake of both their Pluto return and second Neptune opposition, the USA will probably emerge deeply transformed. In 2027/2028 the USA will go through their 3rd Uranus return. The transit will be accompanied by an unusual Minor Grand Trine with Neptune in Aries and Pluto in Aquarius. Such planetary pattern may actually suggest a period of great advancements for society, and the USA may benefit directly from it. The nation will likely experience extreme dynamism when Jupiter will square Uranus across 9 degrees of Virgo-Gemini in the second part of 2027. This reactive configuration will strongly act upon the American Independence chart’s Uranus. Generally speaking, previous transits of Uranus across 8-10 degrees of Mutable signs have coincided with ideological polarization, popular divisions or military actions for the country, such as in 1860/61 and 1944. The next return will be accompanied by the passage of Jupiter through Virgo, which will likely intensify the country’s quest for renewal.

During the same period, Saturn will square national Pluto from late Aries. From a mundane point of view, such transit will precede the waxing square of the newborn Saturn-Pluto cycle. Therefore, it may be argued that the rise of deep changes within the global business, which started at the dawn of the pandemic, during the recent Saturn-Pluto conjunction in Capricorn, will reach a critical stage around 2027. Under the influence of the waxing square, that will be a time which Dane Rudhyar would have defined as the ‘edification phase’ along this cycle of global dismantlement.

It is quite important to remember that the 1991 Russian national chart portrays Mars at 6 degrees of Sagittarius and Saturn at 3 degrees of Aquarius. Both placements will be powerfully triggered by the transits of 2027/2028. The already mentioned waxing Jupiter-Uranus Mutable square will powerfully align with the Russian Mars, while the waxing Saturn-Pluto square will exert pressure on national Saturn, placed at 3 degrees of Aquarius. It also has to be said that modern Russia is currently facing its first Saturn return, which will soon be followed by the transit of Pluto across the same part of the zodiac. This simply indicates a massive act of ‘reassessment’ and possibly ‘reconstruction’ for the whole nation and its international influence.

The 2030s: a new world?

As mentioned, the start of the next decade will be accompanied by another major cosmic event. The next Saturn-Uranus conjunction will occur in Gemini in 2032. Jupiter will be opposing the autocratic duo from visionary Sagittarius the year before, when Saturn and Uranus will have already reached a reasonable orb of conjunction. This means that two major cycles will reach pivotal phases around the turn of the decade. Undoubtedly, a major reshuffle of forces is due to occur during those years. After a turbulent second half of the decade, humanity may get an opportunity to generate a new framework of political, financial and ideological forces worldwide. Considering the signs involved, and with Jupiter (in dignity) participating to such a highly charged configuration, ideological or religious matters may dominate the global scene. We will perhaps end up seeing the next Saturn-Uranus-Jupiter configuration as the dawn of yet another social, economic, political and cultural phase. The current Saturn-Uranus cycle originated in 1988, during the fall of the Eastern Block. Since then, the USA has practically exercised its hegemony on world affairs. The next conjunction may therefore coincide with another cyclical swing of the worldly economic focus towards a different area of the globe.

Religious reformation

The Neptune-Pluto cycle, which started in 1891, will stay on its waxing sextile from 2026 to 2032. This extremely slow outer cycle determines fluctuations in the collective balance of faith and devotion. The Gemini 1891/1892 conjunction stands as the second one of the current series in Air signs. The series began in 1398/1399 at the time of the Catholic Western Schism, with three exact conjunctions in Gemini. Throughout the first half of the 16th century, during the waxing first quarter, the Protestant Reformation ignited Europe, eventually leading to the Counter-Reformation launched by Catholics under the waxing square of the mid-1500s. The whole process reached its culmination during the opposition of 1644-1648, at the end of the Thirty Years’ War.

We are now living through a very long transition from the Piscean to the Aquarian age (totally unrelated to the conjunction of December 2020), a fact which further explains the visible mutation of general awareness towards ‘broad spirituality’. Today’s world is gradually leaving ‘blind dogmatism’ behind. As mentioned, a unique Minor Grand Trine between Pluto, Uranus and focal Neptune will characterize the middle part of the current decade. We may therefore expect to witness the grounding of ‘new-age spirituality’ into tangible form by then. Though still in its primitive development phase, the current Neptune-Pluto cycle is already manifesting profound challenges against the ‘old religious order’, and it will probably reach a critical point in the 2060s, during the waxing square in Mutable signs.

URANUS AND PLUTO IN DECLINATION

In order to understand where, along its evolutionary path, the current society seems to be, it is worth looking at the declination cycles of Uranus and Pluto across the last three centuries. Both planets reached maximum northern declination in the late 1600s. This coincided with the height of absolutism in Europe, under the French monarchy of Louis XIV. During the following decades, the Age of Enlightenment started challenging totalitarianism. That phase ended with the contra-parallel between Uranus and Pluto in the late 1700s, when major shakeups occurred in society. The French and American revolutions determined the ultimate collapse of power centralization. In a cyclic fashion, the decades that followed determined a fresh rise of totalitarianism, with Napoleon’s dictatorship and the rise of nationalism across Europe. The northward movement of Pluto continued for a very long time, and it reached culmination in the late 1940s, during WWII. Another phase of power centralization had completed. It was followed by the Cold War and widespread democratization in the West. This trend will eventually shift in the early 2030s, when Pluto reaches maximum southern declination and Uranus reaches maximum northern declination. The last contra-parallel occurred in the late 1700s. We may expect the next decade to be another moment of great realization for humanity at large. This confirms the ideas suggested earlier on in this article.

If seen from such perspective, the current turmoil caused by the pandemic seems no more than a specific episode which stands along a series of historic changes in a constantly mutating world.

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, providing all the necessary feedback to those who are seeking some form of deeper knowledge.

One of the important facts which I’d really like to point out is that the lunar axis is now halfway through its passage across the Gemini-Sagittarius duality. I’d like to remind all readers that this couple of years is bringing us the opportunity to reassess our knowledge, morality and discernment. In other words, we’ve been looking at the various facets of undiscriminated dissemination of news and ideas. I don’t think we are being called to seek the ultimate truth, but simply to seek OUR individual path though the use of reason. What each soul’s path has in store is extremely personal and incomparable between different people.

The upcoming ingress of Jupiter in Pisces (May 14th) might significantly give us a quick peek into the future of our worldwide struggle with ‘pharmaceutical’ and ‘seafaring’ issues (see how the latest Piscean New Moon significantly brought up these two topics to the foreground).

Last but not least, let’s not forget how powerfully the Aquarian transits of both Jupiter and Saturn have reawakened all sorts of humanitarian issues. Ranging from discrimination and race-oriented crime, to the widespread questioning of prolonged lockdowns and the manifestation of their effects onto the population at large.

As expected, the sudden Aquarian wave which started off with the Grand Conjunction of last December, has been urging this world to start looking at the large-scale effects of rational/scientific thought, yet providing us all with the opportunity to positively think and act out of the box. It all comes down to what you want to make of the energies involved.

Stefano

Aquarian energy at its strongest…
The next lunar month starts with the New Moon of February 11th.
It will occur at 23 Aquarius, accompanied by an extraordinary alignment of Mercury, Venus, Jupiter and Saturn in the same sign.
It seems quite obvious that humanitarian themes will reach an unprecedented climax between February and March. At the beginning of this year our collective attention visibly turned towards social issues and communitarian dynamics. The dismantling impasse of 2020, manifested under an extraordinary Jupiter-Saturn-Pluto alignment in Capricorn, has left very unstable territory behind. The succession of Aquarian/Uranian patterns in 2021/22 will deeply scrutinise and question last year’s social, judicial, financial, ideological and political dynamics.

The next lunar month will more clearly manifest the foundations of this new global/social reality which is still at its birthing phase. As I have specified several times over the last few months, soli-lunar cycles are fast, so they trigger background forces around the zodiac. This year’s main influences are linked to the Jupiter-Saturn-Uranus squares in Fixed signs. February further unlocks that revolutionary, humanitarian, communitarian and ideological energy.

At the New Moon, Neptune will be culminating over Washington DC. This means that some degree of uncertainty and confusion may become visible within governmental circles.
When Neptune is prominent within mundane charts, fascination often meets illusion. Especially during these Uranian times, rational and groundbreaking at their very core, Neptune can turn out to be a really confusing and destabilising influence for the community. Let’s not forget that Neptune often addresses humanity’s archaic need for idolatry and devotion. In DC the New Moon will fall within the 9th House of foreign affairs, as Jupiter features on a tight conjunction with Venus. The Sagittarian South Node and Mercury will form a partile sextile, while squaring both Neptune and the MC/IC axis. With this series of combinations foreign issues and large-scale judicial matters may be on the foreground.

On a general note, the wide square of this Sun-Moon alignment with Mars in Taurus denotes generalised dynamism, while the tight Mercury-Mars may bring fiery quarrels within a confused media community. All in all, this New Moon chart carries a powerful ideological and groundbreaking signature.

Interestingly, the New Moon will conjoin the USA national Moon, so the current energetic shakeup may directly affect the population, which remains dangerously split by two main currents of thought. Our rational judgement and ideological balance are powerfully tested during these Aquarian days.

uk brexit covid horoscope mundane astrology jupiter saturn conjunction aquarius uranus neptune planetary cycles global evolution astrology consciousness evolutionary change

The Jupiter – Saturn conjunction has arrived with much ado. A new destabilizing wave of fear is apparently attacking an exhausted world. The existence of a new strain of COVID virus has been declared days ago. As a consequence, the UK is being isolated from other countries. Apart from Brexit talks, the country is now having to deal with a mutated virus. Under the powerful Aquarian presence of a new Jupiter – Saturn cycle, are we to expect the same level of social contraction which literally halted humanity 9 months ago? I honestly doubt it. The current planetary influences are representative of much needed change. As specified in Jupiter meets Saturn, moving towards Solstice, Jupiter, Saturn and Uranus are finally engaged in a configuration of considerable importance. The complexity of this ‘Uranian’ pattern is going to set the tone of a new collective force which will be with us for a while. However, due to the relatively quick movement of Jupiter, the long-standing configuration will soon be reduced to a waxing Saturn – Uranus square.

In simple words, we are entering revolutionary times.

As we prepare to de-clutter our lives and embrace what’s new, the UK struggles with Capricorn-like restrictions quite badly. As specified in Jupiter meets Saturn, moving towards Solstice & The Eurozone Under Stress, the whole EU is in for huge changes. The next few months will open a new chapter for the Union. No doubt the current turmoil will affect trade. The UK is already preparing for possible shortages of food, due to the recent disputed declarations. Considering the rapidly shifting astrological landscape, the ongoing developments are going to shed light upon many aspects of collective life. This will affect many levels of social existence, from intergovernmental institutions to individual life. Today’s ingress of the Sun into Capricorn opens a new mundane season and, our star having aligned with Mercury into a superior conjunction, we are being asked to become practical and resolute.

BREXIT

A quick look at the Brexit story might shed some light upon the ongoing turmoil which the UK is experiencing. As you may remember, on June 23rd 2016 a Brexit referendum was held, and it resulted in 51.9% of the votes being cast in favor of leaving the EU. The people voted under a mutable Saturn – Neptune waning square. We will see how the Saturn – Neptune cycle has played an important role for the UK, and not only with regards to Brexit.

The UK joined the European Union on January 1st 1973. Guess what, a mutable Saturn – Neptune opposition in Gemini – Sagittarius was at play back then. Therefore, the UK’s relationship with the EU is powerfully linked with the Saturn – Neptune cycle. The UK officially withdrew from the EU on January 31st 2020, at 11pm GMT. Interestingly, that occurred under a complex septile made by the Saturn – Pluto conjunction on one side, and a Venus-Neptune conjunction on the other. This means that Saturn and Neptune were linked to each other by a particular aspect. Another point of interest is that the Brexit chart has its IC at 23 degrees of Capricorn, in tight conjunction with both Saturn and Pluto. Right now, a stern Mars – Pluto square across the 23rd degree of Aries – Capricorn is influencing the world at large. It is not a coincidence that Brexit talks for a ‘deal’ are reaching a critically difficult stage at this point.

THE GREAT CONJUNCTION IS PIVOTAL

The epochal Jupiter – Saturn conjunction in Aquarius will be influencing most of the pivotal mundane charts of our times, such as Russia, China, Taiwan and Israel. There are several organizations in the same evolutionary pot, and one of them is the EU. In Europe, Germany and the UK will be protagonists of the ongoing reformation, influenced the most by the new 20-year Jupiter – Saturn cycle. This is because these particular charts have important configurations across the first degrees of Fixed signs.

Within the 1801 UK chart, royal Jupiter is in early Leo. It is currently being opposed by the Jupiter – Saturn conjunction in Aquarius. Also, a great deal of Leonine energy is visible in the secondary progressed UK chart, under its ongoing progressed Sun – Jupiter conjunction. Most importantly, an impending progressed New Moon heralds a fresh beginning for the nation, within the next months. The amount of Leo energy in the country’s mundane astrological situation suggests to me that the Royal family is likely to undergo major changes in the near future as well. It may be interesting to note how Prince William’s natal Sun at 0 degrees of Cancer was eclipsed this year. Whenever triggering planets such as Mars will conjunct or oppose the eclipsed degree the eclipse’s message will be recalled again and again for years. In The Great Eclipse I explained how that particular New Moon will bear global resonance for years to come. Also, Prince William’s Ascendant is at 27 degrees of Sagittarius, and it will be opposed by the 2032 Saturn – Uranus conjunction. The 2021-2032 Saturn – Uranus waning last quarter is going to prepare Prince William for a significant chapter of his life.

Prince Charles is profoundly connected to mother Queen Elizabeth via many powerful synastry contacts. His natal Moon at 0 degrees of Taurus conjuncts his mother’s Sun with a very tight orb. Charles’ secondary progressed North Node is now conjunct the same degree, and so is Queen Elizabeth’s progressed IC – Chiron conjunction. Her progressed Sun is currently at 1 degree of Leo, on a tight square to the progressed IC – Chiron configuration. A progressed Jupiter – Neptune opposition acts over the 23rd degree of Aquarius – Leo, with Neptune particularly close to national Saturn in Leo. This highlights the fact that important developments may soon involve the English monarchy. The Jupiter – Saturn conjunction is now becoming exact in early Aquarius, therefore activating all the Fixed signs’ early degrees. In particular, this represents a major activation for the synastry between the Prince and the Queen.

Prince Charles’ progressed Moon is currently in alignment with natal Jupiter in Sagittarius, bringing Jupiterian matters to the foreground. It will soon enter Capricorn, as it now stands on the anaretic 29th degree of Sagittarius. This will signify the arrival of important changes for him, which entail some degree of heightened responsibility. A lot has been going on in the Sagittarius-Capricorn transition area this week, and great influence is being exerted on Charles’ birth horoscope. The most important feature is that his progressed Sun at 5 degrees of Aquarius is currently crossing the natal Descendant. With the arrival of both Jupiter and Saturn, the next few weeks will represent the opening of a new chapter for him. With the progressed Sun, transiting Jupiter and Saturn soon entering his natal 7th House, Prince Charles may obtain public prominence somehow. Traditionally, any major planetary shift across the natal Descendant into the 7th House, represents a form of breaking out into the open. It’s like opening the window in a dark room, with blinding rays of light coming across all of a sudden.

On July 13th 1837 Queen Victoria moved to Buckingham Palace, making it the official residence of the English monarchy thereon. On that day, a tight Venus – Neptune opposition was acting across 6-7 degrees of Leo and Aquarius. Interestingly, Saturn in Scorpio squared the opposition. We find the Saturn – Neptune element again and again. The Jupiter – Uranus square will be exact on January 17th across the 6th degrees of Aquarius and Taurus. The revolutionary, explosive and uncontrollable influence of the Jupiter – Uranus cycle is well known to astrologers. These transits have a ‘renovating’ and ‘historic’ signature.

THE UK OPENING A NEW CHAPTER

It may be worth paying attention to the fact that the UK is profoundly linked with the Saturn – Neptune cycle, both at a Constitutional and Monarchic level. Queen Elizabeth II was born under an important T-Square which involved both Saturn and Neptune, Queen Victoria transferred to Buckingham palace under a Saturn – Neptune square, and the 1801 UK chart has a Saturn – Neptune square itself. It looks as though the old British establishment, ramified politically into its recent relationship with other countries of the European Union, is sealed under the Saturn – Neptune signature. Just as the British empire gave way to overseas predominance a couple of centuries ago, this cycle became significant for the Kingdom. The latest Saturn – Neptune conjunction of 2009 kicked off a long period of ‘independentism’ within the country. Right around the conception of that cycle, the UKIP was gaining prominence. Now that we are approaching the waning semi-square of this long cycle (exact on January 20th), we are witnessing another conclusion of facts, which heralds new beginnings for the country. The course which the UK will take is hard to define, but what seems to be evident is that the nation is likely to undergo major change, both from a political and monarchical point of view. Astrology suggests that a transition is afoot for the country, and it will affect several aspects of collective life, not only through a noisy Brexit.

Let’s embrace this long-awaited planetary shift with open hearts and compassion!

jupiter saturn conjunction aquarius horoscope mundane astrology winter solstice solar ingress capricorn capricorn awakening consciousness forecast predicit

Astrologically speaking, a buildup of otherworldly energy is currently influencing the world at large. The recent Solar Eclipse in Sagittarius has kicked off a new chapter of elevated ideological reformation, through its Neptunian – Jupiterian signature. Moreover, the eclipse in question preceded the very important double ingress of Jupiter and Saturn into Aquarius. The Jupiter – Saturn conjunction has been within orb for months, but it will be exact at 0Aquarius29, on the day of the December Solstice. This obviously makes the upcoming season quite significant. For now let’s stick to the big picture. We can look at the Capricorn ingress of the Sun after making a few important considerations about the outer-planetary landscape. The last time a Jupiter – Saturn conjunction occurred in Aquarius was in 1405, roughly 600 years ago. These conjunctions swipe through the four elements of the zodiac, and each element phase is completed with a rhythm of roughly 800 years. This means that we are now re-rentering the Airy phase of the Jupiter – Saturn cycle, though a short window was opened by the conjunction of 1981 in Libra. Every conjunction is obviously important for the world at large, but it would be wrong to consider such events as ‘unique’. Jupiter – Saturn alignments occur every two decades, but several reasons actually turn the current conjunction into a special one. The Mutation towards the Airy season of this grand cycle is a significant consideration to be made. Also, we have to consider how significant it will be for humanity to be ushered into an Aquarian world after the deep Capricornian impasse which as affected society at large in 2020. With the Jupiter – Saturn cycle transitioning from Earth to Air, a long-haul reassessment of ‘material achievement’ is left behind, and a period of ‘ideological’ reformation starts.

With both Jupiter and Saturn going through Aquarius and squaring revolutionary Uranus in Taurus during the next months, it is quite hard to envisage 2021 as a year ruled by fear and inactivity. Also, idealist Neptune is currently squaring the Nodal Axis, adding a high level of mutability to this complex astrological picture. We should not be surprised if a great deal of popular excitement will affect the world at large during the next pivotal months. After all, Neptune is not to be seen only as ‘ethereal’, but deeply ideological too. Under Neptune’s most significant transits, humanity feels the need to find redemption, often engaging in unprecedented upheaval. Society fights for mass-oriented ideals under the influence of utopian Neptune. It seems quite obvious that the current astrological landscape is not only influenced by the now ‘famous’ Jupiter – Saturn conjunction, but by an entire constellation of epochal planetary configurations which promise that a historic revolution will accompany humanity across the 2020-2030 decade.

Read more about this in Saturn-Uranus Square: the World Changing ; 2020 – An Extraordinary Turning Point ; Planetary Awakening of Lightforce.

We are now entering an ‘uncharted’ chapter of our lives, and many layers of society are soon going to be engaged in widespread ideological battle. The bottom line is that humanitarian issues will come to the surface once more, and humanity will finally be urged to deal with them constructively. The culmination of ‘freedom-oriented’ dynamics will occur in February, under a powerful New Moon which will highlight a wonderful Aquarian stellium made by Mercury, Venus, Jupiter, Saturn, Sun and Moon.

These final weeks of year 2020 represent the beginning of change for our civilization.

Solar Ingress December Solstice 2020

The Capricorn Solar ingress chart is a very significant one. It seems that we are ready to conclude this year in a unique fashion.

The most striking features are two important conjunctions which are 30 degrees apart from each other, a semi-sextile.

A superior Sun – Mercury conjunction appears in early Capricorn, representing the culmination of our need to reorganize thoughts, projects and ideas. Superior Sun-Mercury conjunctions occur when the Earth, the Sun and Mercury are in a straight line, with the Sun in-between. The Sun – Mercury cycle is one of the most important influencers of social development, because it acts as a relaying force in the relentless tapestry of the Solar System. Inferior Sun – Mercury conjunctions occur when the latter is retrograde, and therefore it stands between the Earth and the Sun. Inferior conjunctions represent beginnings, whereas superior ones represent culminations.

The already explored Jupiter – Saturn conjunction is also pretty tight in the Solar Ingress chart, and it is placed a semi-sextile away from the Sun – Mercury superior conjunction. This picture brings duality into this solar ingress chart; the Sun remains engaged in an intellectual quest for ‘safety’ and ‘solid ground’, while our generational urge to embrace Aquarian inventiveness is now made real. In simple words, change is afoot, and the shift will be quite deep this season. However, our minds are still going to be partially focused in the past, probably with many individuals still unwilling to let go of the shore and embrace the galactic quest of Aquarian frenzy. This particular Solstice picture may bring about ‘disclosures’ and ‘realizations’ which concern our well-established beliefs and values. When the Sun will transit the Jupiter – Saturn conjunction degree, it will reignite enormous potential for change. That will occur on the USA Presidential Inauguration day. It seems quite clear that the USA are going to be playing a pivotal role in this impending transformation.

Another important feature of the Solstice chart is the final Mars – Pluto square across 22-23 degrees of Aries – Capricorn. These critically important mundane degrees are likely to bring about a powerful release of raw Scorpionic energy into society. Mars – Pluto contacts can be quite rough to deal with but, if constructively embraced, they can provide us with the necessary strength to endure even the toughest periods.

The world at large is now being called to break with a static past.

Let’s embrace this long-awaited planetary shift with open hearts and compassion!

aquarius eclipse sagittarius mundane astrology horoscope mars jupiter saturn uranus neptune pluto society politics evolution awareness consciousness

The universal pulse is tremendously intense these days… It may never be enough to stress the fact that we are on the verge of a great cultural, ideological and spiritual shift. Both the Sun and Mercury have recently shifted into Sagittarius, adding more fuel to this underlying expanding force. We may in fact be in for a profound shakeup of our most deeply rooted beliefs.

After a year of pure Capricornian ‘structural dismantlement’, we are rapidly shifting towards a period characterized by Uranian energy. As explained in previous articles, Jupiter and Saturn are about to enter Aquarius, from where they will be squaring Uranus. Especially the Saturn-Uranus square will be in place for quite a few months, bringing a great deal of ‘revolutionary’ energy all around. In 2021, the main theme will be the dichotomy between the ‘old’ and the ‘new’. Society will be divided between what seems to represent ‘solid foundations’ and what promises to bring ‘advancement and progress’.

The reason why 2021 and 2022 could be defined as ‘Aquarian’ years is varied. The main planetary standoff will be represented by the Saturn-Uranus square, and both planets co-rule the sign of Aquarius. This means that they have affinity with the ‘humanitarian’ and ‘libertarian’ nature of this particular sign. With Saturn finally entering Aquarius, ‘freedom-related issues’ will need to be addressed, in stark contrast with the intensification of regimentation and structuring which has accompanied the still ongoing transit of Saturn through Capricorn. Also, the Jupiter-Saturn conjunction will bring us into the Airy season of this particular cycle. This means that the conjunction of December 2020 will be somewhat indicative of change. These conjunctions are not rare at all, because they occur roughly every 20 years. However, this Element shift from Earth to Air will prove to be a significant turning point, from a long-term perspective.

In 2020, the pressure over the sign of Capricorn has significantly increased, due to the Jupiter-Saturn-Pluto triple conjunction. That conjunction is now fading away, as Jupiter and Saturn move away from Pluto to make a revolutionary conjunction in the next sign Aquarius. The last 11 months have served as an unprecedented catalyst for widespread self-scrutiny. Many people have visibly encountered deeper meaning in their individual lives. The difficulties endured because of the prolonged enactment of prohibitions of all kinds have triggered intense despair. Those who were on the spiritual path may have found it easier to weather the storm, nonetheless, the 2020 journey has been hard for society at large. I am now looking at it as if it were part of the past, because it is quite clear that we are now MOVING ON. The current issues are not likely to ‘fade away’ all of a sudden, but considerable progress will soon be made with regards to resolving the current situation.

These first days of December have been intensely unstable and probably even misleading for some. The most sensitive ones may have realized how unnerving the energies have been during this particular ‘transition week’. Right now we are entering uncharted territory. As I explained a few months ago, eclipses have the potential to unlock large dynamics. This is because they are seen to ‘release’ stuck energies worldwide, metaphorically speaking. During eclipse seasons the global scenario generally gets more chaotic and uncertain. This is more evident and widespread after prolonged phases of generalized disruption, such as the COVID pandemic. After a year of impasse and globalized restrictions, we can expect to witness a furious release of opposite energies. The archetype involved in the current slowdown is chiefly ‘Saturnian’ or ‘Capricornian’. For those who know even a bit about astrology, one of the basic considerations about Saturnian factors is that they erect boundaries and increase responsibility. The backlash is now expected to be represented by the arrival of Aquarian energy. It is arriving with great force, considering the 2021/2022 Saturn-Uranus standoff, combined with the entrance of Jupiter into Aquarius. The Sagittarian Solar Eclipse of December 14th will prove to be a gateway into the future, filled with visionary and ideological power. Its square to Neptune is likely to highlight misleading patterns and uncover so far hidden information. The oil and pharmaceutical industries are also in for important developments this month. The latter is obviously going to be involved with the new vaccines. However, under such a rapidly shifting astrological scenario, how likely is it that no controversial information is finally presented to the world, with regards to these quickly developed drugs?

The eclipse will fall on the 23rd degree of Sagittarius, so it will be aligned with the USA’s Mars, Trump’s and Jinping’s natal Sun and interestingly, Venezuela’s Saturn-Jupiter-Pluto-Nodes Mutable Grand Cross. Also, this particular lunation will fall near the IC in Beijing, addressing the territory and its people directly. The eclipse will fall near the Midheaven in Caracas, with Neptune rising. It seems that among the countries directly addressed, Venezuela gains a prominent role.

In the USA, the eclipse will fall in the 10th House, so it will directly refer to the current presidential standoff. The developments which may follow promise to be very interesting.

The shadow path will cross Chile and Argentina. At times when important eclipses obscure that region of the world, there seems to be a higher incidence of seismic activity along the South-Eastern Pacific fault line. Neptune will be rising along the coast of Chile at the time of the eclipse, so the risk of tsunami is not to be overlooked. Such phenomena could well manifest also under important transits over the eclipsed degree within months to come.

This particular Solar Eclipse promises to have worldwide resonance.

All these considerations confirm the fact that we are rounding the bend right now, and a major chapter is being closed. New cycles bring new challenges of course, but a change is more than needed right now. We are entering an historical phase which will definitely erase all boundaries that have been restricting human knowledge. Clear manifestations of such collective psychological and energetic shift can be found in the news already. Whether authentic or not, stories such as those of monoliths popping up and disappearing all over the world, rumors of governmental UFO files being declassified soon, UFO sightings soaring again, meteors and mysterious ‘atmospheric explosions’ being caught on camera, the space race regaining momentum, are all manifestations of the same collective shift. Aquarian times often bring us beyond what is ‘real’ and ‘terrestrial’.

Let us welcome the impending shift with open hearts and the willingness to constructively embrace social change and spiritual evolution.

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.

Considering the astrological scenario of the next few months, we should start wondering what’s in store for the Royal Family and its nation.

The Pharmaceutical Rush

The arrival of Jupiter in Pisces will soon address the current pharmaceutical rush. Healing and compassion or excess and conspiracy?

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!

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
January 20th 2021 – Noon Chart – Washington DC
Representation made with Solar Fire
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.

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…

The latest Libra Solar Ingress cast for Rome shows Uranus at the IC. The same zodiacal degrees are soon going to be stimulated by a Full Moon at 8 degrees of Taurus. The Italian Republic foundation chart (June 10th 1946) features the Moon (mundane ruler of the population and its well-being) at 4 degrees of Scorpio, in close opposition to transiting Uranus and the upcoming full Moon.

This shows how a quarterly mundane chart’s reactivation caused by a subsequent Lunar Phase can unlock the latent potential of a planetary configuration which occurred even months before.
