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!

saturn uranus square usa horoscope mundane astrology 2021 2022 presidential election inauguration washington

A complex Saturn – Uranus waning square is approaching, while unbalance and discomfort continue to dominate the world view. The current planetary configuration in Capricorn has obviously unleashed enormous amounts of energy. All this comes with the flavor of the most conservative of astrological signs. Concurrently, a fastidious semi-square between Uranus and Neptune participates in the whole story; no wonder why humanity is still looking for a way to clear out the fog and move forward with decision.By looking at next year, a specific configuration becomes prominent; in fact, an extensive Saturn – Uranus square in fixed signs will dominate 2021, remaining within orb throughout most of 2022.

A highly charged configuration, it will occur right after a long period of social, political and economic destabilization. The long square will trigger profound changes all over the world. The interval between two successive Saturn – Uranus conjunctions is around 45 years long. Such period visibly marks an entire cycle along the cyclical reorganization of social dynamics. The 29-year cycle of Saturn resonates with both individual and collective growth. Its ultimate meaning is that of grounding ideas into reality. On the other hand, the 84-year cycle of Uranus is related to slower evolutionary trends; it addresses the ebbs and flows of ideological and intellectual force. While Saturn sets the boundaries of that which we create materially and methodically, Uranus looks beyond; it opens doors to the realm of idealism and freedom. Obviously, the interaction between these two planets is generally accompanied by turbulent reshuffles within society.

Each conjunction sets the stage for a new half-century phase in which society at large seeks a different governmental/ideological balance. By looking at past Saturn – Uranus cycles, we get a clear idea of the rhythm at which leadership currents change on a large scale. André Barbault’s book ‘Planetary Cycles – Mundane Astrology” contains a clear description of such phenomena.

What times are we living in?

We are currently approaching the last quarter of the current Saturn – Uranus cycle, which started with a conjunction period in 1988. It will end in 2032 with another conjunction. The last quarter of each cycle starts off the disintegration of obsolete structures. This brings a period of crisis necessary for the discovery of newness by the time a new conjunction occurs. The end of the 1980s was obviously a time of turbulent upheaval; the major outcome of the latest Saturn – Uranus conjunction was the fall of the Eastern bloc. This caused the consequent shift of power towards the West. The disintegration of the USSR was an utter manifestation of the instability of Saturn – Uranus alignments. Such planetary interactions provoke rapid shakeups within the world of structure and control.

Saturn is akin to traditions and the Establishment while the nature of Uranus is both sudden and cold-blooded. As a result, under Saturn – Uranus aspects the foundations of society at large shake badly due to society’s desire for change.

As the USA face their Pluto return (this means that Pluto is now transiting the same area of the zodiac where it was in 1776), a profound metamorphosis is occuring within the country. Also, Neptune is currently opposing the position it holds within the Independence Chart. This is the main reason why new social movements are developing nationwide. The next Inauguration Day will occur under a complex configuration of great importance. In January 2021, the above-mentioned Saturn – Uranus square will be accompanied by Jupiter in close conjunction with Saturn in Aquarius. In other words, the Inauguration of US Presidency will occur between the upcoming Jupiter-Saturn conjunction in early Aquarius and the first hit of the Saturn – Uranus square. Also, Mars will be conjunct Uranus in Taurus, together with the Moon. 2021 Inauguration Day will fall around a very heated First Quarter Soli-Lunar phase.

The next years will be about trying to re-edify the skeleton of the country and its unity, or about preventing its utter collapse

This shows us that the next US Presidency will be about enacting a forceful reorganization of structures and social balance. This relates to the fact that in the Inauguration chart such an unstable planetary alignment will dominate two Fixed Signs. The Moon will accompany Mars and Uranus in a financial sign, so civil unrest is not likely to subside at all.

The ideological strength of the upcoming Jupiter-Saturn – Uranus configuration is not to be overlooked, and it will most likely initiate a national reorientation which on the long term will affect the global equilibrium

US & the EU

There are grounds to determine that 2021 will represent a long standoff between ‘conservation and ‘renovation. Obviously, the Saturn – Uranus waning square will affect many countries, and not just the USA; the current balance of forces within the European continent may need to be reassessed as well. This is because the early degrees of Fixed Signs has played a prominent role along the European Union’s history.

The three Saturn – Uranus squares will occur between 7 and 13 degrees of Aquarius and Taurus, two Fixed signs. This indicates that the upcoming destabilization will affect whatever survives by inertia within the social, political and economic scene. Such planetary stimulations are also liable to trigger powerful geological or environmental instability, including historical earthquakes, explosions or eruptions. We may assist to environment-related breakthroughs, and our relationship with planet Earth may change, hopefully in positive ways. As long as humanity succeeds in controlling its environmental impact, the upcoming planetary struggle will prove to be constructive.

All countries and organizations carrying important planetary configurations within the same degrees will be affected throughout 2021. Among those we find India, China, Russia, Germany, the United Kingdom, NATO, the United Nations and the European Union. Russia is approaching its Saturn return, and this appears as an upcoming phase of national reassessment. The domestic changes many countries and organizations are likely to experience will set the stage for the upcoming global reorientation.

The current cycle started from late Sagittarius in 1988; it coincided with a powerful crackdown of the bipolar political struggle which had been ruling the world since WWII. In fact, it directed humanity towards the expansiveness of a fast-growing globalization phase.

The current cycle won’t come to a definite end before 2032, a time in which the Saturn – Uranus zodiacal dance will eventually give way to a new phase of human history. The next conjunction will occur in Gemini, potentially carrying this world towards a new 45-year period characterized by a better orientation towards intellectualism and rational thought

As the old saying goes, ‘history repeats itself’. So long as humanity becomes genuinely aware of its own evolutionary process, each crisis heralds a better future!

On July 20th a New Moon falls at 28Cancer27, in tight opposition to Saturn. This is a very important detail which denotes a remarkable amount of heavy energy around the current lunar month. Saturn is often regarded as an “ominous” presence within the zodiac, yet we need to recognize its positive qualities as well, in order to fully understand the enormous depth which characterizes its 29-year cycle. It is absolutely undeniable that whenever Saturn is involved in any astrological event, heaviness, hardships and a generalized sense of “slowdown” are perceived. It is not a case that the word “lockdown” is so popular in the year in which Saturn and Capricorn have been so prominently engaged. On the other hand, we should recognize how immediately discernible manifestations of its astrological influence are profoundly linked with conscious growth and responsibility.

By looking at the current New Moon configuration, a clear emphasis of such themes is evident. The tightness with which the Sun-Moon conjunction opposes retrograde Saturn in Capricorn is not so often reproduced in the skies. The more uncommon or tighter an aspect is, the more significance it acquires, astrologically speaking. We have already seen how the end of July gave rise to a confused “second COVID-19 wave within the first”, especially in the US. The effects of retrograde conjunctions of slow planets, such as the Jupiter-Pluto one which became exact for the second time on June 30th, are coincident with times of generalized social reassessment and ideological reorientation. The high degree of confusion, together with the new wave of social restrictions, was clearly aligned with the astrological event in question. Under such climate, we are now entering a lunar month which is profoundly characterized by a high degree of disciplined force. This could indicate that the global order, both politically and socially, might experience further reorganizations, perhaps quite evidently. An interesting feature transpires from this synodic month, as the New Moon makes a very tight opposition to taskmaster Saturn, whereas the subsequent Full Moon, which occurs on August 3rd at 11Aquarius45, creates a T-Square with Uranus in Taurus. Also, the New Moon-Saturn opposition acts over the Cardinal signs of Cancer and Capricorn, whereas the Full Moon is Aquarian and squared by its own co-ruler. What does this all mean?

In simple words, the lunar month brings the “seed” of restoration, but its culminating experience will be related to some acts of sudden destabilization. Evidently, we are still in a phase which potentially brings further uncertainty and instability in order to make enough room for a new global order. In this case, the concept of “global order” does not resonate with any conspiratorial themes, but simply to the fact that the profound shifts which society is facing are already provoking a much needed re-balancing of political, social and possibly spiritual themes as well. This might not be readily evident, unless we carefully look at the big picture, also considering the historical phase during which the powerful Capricornian awakening has been taking place.

Interestingly, the New Moon-Saturn opposition lies on the meridian axis over Florida, one of the regions most aggressively hit by the pandemic. Again we can observe the lack of randomness in the unfoldment of global events, as they closely reflect the prevailing astrological circumstances.

The Aquarian Full Moon which occurs on August 3rd clearly suggests a high degree of instability, as mentioned already. Also, the humanitarian crisis that is becoming so largely evident is set to be gifted with newer developments. Sectors such as the shipping industry are suffering so intensely under the ongoing wave of restrictions, which has removed any sort of fluidity from regular crew exchanges in an unprecedented manner. Thousands of seafarers still remain stuck on board all sorts of vessels waiting for the slightest hope to get back to their home countries; similarly, huge numbers of workers are waiting to get a new contract, still unable to fly out of their own countries with commercial flights.

It is worth considering the possibility of such dynamism being reflected onto the territory as well. In other words, in early August we might expect intense seismic activity, especially in the Far East, where the Sun-Moon opposition acts over the Meridian Axis, while crossing some important fault lines.

On the same day, Mars in Aries will square Jupiter in Capricorn, giving rise to great ideological zest. The revolutionary power of the upcoming Full Moon is remarkable, and it might deeply affect all those countries born in the late 1940s, when Pluto was at 10 degrees of Leo. Those nations are currently experiencing the long square of Uranus to their natal Pluto placements; mundanely, this transit can be seen as an ongoing dismemberment of deeply ingrained and power-related national dynamics. With Uranus-Pluto aspects, there is an inescapable collective need to face the unknown, and this very process inevitably leads toward a regenerative yet scary encounter with darkness.

On July 25th Mars will enter its shadow, as it crosses the 15th degree of Aries, still moving with direct motion. This means that it passes the point at which it will station direct on November 14th. Evidently, a long season characterized by a literal “reorientation of individual drive and fighting spirit” has already started. In simple words, the long retrogradation of Mars in Aries, a sign which it rules, will square the ongoing gathering of heavy planets in Capricorn, which is unmistakably linked with the unprecedented wave of social change we are currently living through.


To summarize, those whose birthdays fall near July 20th or January 20th may experience a year of increased responsibilities dominated by a generalized sense of slowdown. Limitations may be imposed by either external or inner circumstances, and the way to success will be found mainly through acceptance. Those whose natal Moon is placed around 28 degrees of Cancer or Capricorn will particularly experience such pressure at an emotional level. With the Moon ruling the basic instinctual functions of body and mind, a year of inner reorganization will help in building a solid foundation, though painful or strenuous it may feel.

The Full Moon will fall across the 12th degrees of Aquarius-Leo. Those whose birthdays fall around August 3rd or February 3rd will enter a year of important changes which mainly concern relationships. With a Full Moon being so tightly aspected by Uranus, there may also be separations. All in all, the outcome will be an unrestrained call for freedom and rational understanding. The closer either the Sun or Moon are to the degrees of the current lunar phases, the tighter the aspect in the Solar Return chart; therefore, the stronger the effect will be over the coming months.

As Mars enters its retrogradation period, important developments will hopefully bring more clarity into a poignantly confused world.

Relating to the latest article “Two Eclipses show us the Healing Path”, sudden volcanic activity has occurred in Stromboli, a small island in the Southern Tirrenian Sea. The transit of Mars over the 12th degree of Aries, in applying square to the recent Capricornian Lunar Eclipse has definitely ignited powerful geological forces, as expected. As I specified previously, more research is obviously needed on the subject. The current astrological knowledge allows us to identify the major stressing factors which are likely to determine powerful geological developments in certain areas of the globe.

December 2020: the Cosmic Shift

The Aquarian or ‘Uranian’ times which we are now approaching are likely to bring initial destabilization. Every new beginning is obviously shrouded in anxiety and uncertainty.

Loading…

The end of this month is likely to bring further developments about the current social, cultural and political situation. We have recently experienced a significant Solar Annular Eclipse in the initial degree of Cancer, whose configuration is described in a previous article called “The Great Eclipse” . Remarkably, the connection between the eclipse and the Indian territory manifested in a literal way, with deadly clashes occurring along that very border with China; that region was clearly emphasized by the eclipse’s configuration. As already specified in different articles, every conjunction represents a moment of “oblivion” in which a new seed is being planted, but full awareness of the new dynamics is not there yet. At the beginning of each astrological cycle, such as the occurrence of a Solar Eclipse, there is consciousness at play, but it still works underneath a shadowy blanket. Further developments might be experienced by the next Full Moon/Lunar Eclipse and when Mars squares the eclipsed degree. In general, we can tell that for a few years, whenever important configurations reactivate the initial degrees of Cardinal signs, significant developments will be observed globally.

Also, a 7.4 magnitude earthquake struck Southern Mexico this morning, followed by a significant swarm. At the epicenter, the Solar Eclipse fell within 4 degrees from the IC, or Lower Meridian. The IC is generally emphasized when matters related to the territory become relevant. Despite the fact that the Sun-Moon conjunction was exactly aligned with the meridian angle around 400 Km away from the epicenter of the strongest quake of the series, the Pacific fault line has evidently released some stored energy only a couple of days from the occurrence of that major eclipse. We know how seismic phenomena act as the release of stored tectonic energies, and there is astrological evidence that significant eclipses tend to act as powerful triggers. The “energetic unlocking” effects which eclipses seem to have on the planet are not only manifested as specific dynamics which arise among the human society, but they can relate to the environment as well. Major earthquakes, eruptions or tsunamis are generally linked with powerful eclipses which previously formed specific configurations along or across sensitive fault lines or in areas of high volcanic activity. “Previously” does not necessarily mean hours or days before the event, because the eclipse in question can happen even years before; consequent activations of its overall planetary configuration seem to “re-trigger” the same releasing dynamic. A lot of research obviously has to be done yet, but hopefully a day will come in which we can properly connect the cosmic dynamics with the long-term evolutionary processes of planet Earth.

A multiple activation of the 13th degree of Cardinal Signs will soon recall the configuration of a previous eclipse which has been significantly connected with geological activity in the Mediterranean. This means that July could bring increased volcanic activity in Southern Italy.

Astrologically speaking, the first week of July appears to carry a special charge. The following events will be of particular relevance:

  • June 28th – Mars’ Aries ingress and stimulation of recent Cancer Solar Eclipse
  • June 30th – 2nd Jupiter-Pluto conjunction (retrograde)
  • July 1st – Sun-Mercury inferior conjunction at 9 degrees Cancer square Chiron in Aries; Saturn enters Capricorn

It goes without saying that those days are quite likely to bring enhanced dynamism around the globe.

First of all, the ingress of Mars into Aries will definitely act as a catalyst for that fiery energy which has expressed itself in a very ideological way all around the globe. The previous lunar cycle, as specified in “The Dance of Fire“, has visibly brought an intense wave of dynamism which manifested through both violence and extreme idealism. The Mars-Neptune interaction has proved to be quite influential in the current wave of change which is visibly shaking the foundations of what we considered to be a solidly structured society.

The current retrogradation of Mercury is bringing lots of information out into the open, such as the publication of Michael Bolton’s book “The Room Where it Happened: A White House Memoir“, which has had a huge journalistic impact all across the globe. With Mercury moving retrograde across the 13th degree of Cancer, which is the zodiacal position of the US’ Independence Sun, the release of presidential information comes with a strong symbolic support.

As already specified in a recent article, the current retrogradation of Mercury is likely to bring out important revelations. This is both related to the Sun-Mercury-Chiron square, and the fact that it occurs in an area of the zodiac which is strongly linked with the US’ Independence Chart. Hopefully, the Sun-Mercury-Chiron square which characterizes the inferior conjunction of July 1st, will bring the necessary knowledge which can have the potential to initiate humanity towards the healing path, during this very complex historical phase.

The second hit of the current Jupiter-Pluto conjunction will occur on June 30th and it is likely to magnetize the weeks to come. Saturn enters Capricorn again on July 2nd, and a powerful energetic shift is impending. This whole astrological picture may bring a second wave of restrictions, but it may not be as dramatic as the previous one, if the knowledge acquired since the initial outbreak is utilized properly. Nevertheless, with Jupiter, Saturn and Pluto teaming up in the same sign again, a certain feeling of heaviness is likely to revisit many of us. Those who carry sensitive natal configurations in Cardinal signs are likely to experience important developments. This is also relevant for those nations whose charts show similar planetary placements, such as Italy, whose Venus-Saturn conjunction at 21-23 degrees Cancer will be powerfully reactivated by the second Jupiter-Pluto conjunction. In other words, July will bring those two slow-moving planets into a similar alignment as the one which occurred in March, at the time of the initial lockdown. Maybe it will all result in a different dynamic characterized by the useful awareness gained during a long phase of difficulty and sorrow.

The Jupiter-Pluto retrograde conjunction will come together with the powerful stimulation of the recently eclipsed degree by square. Mars will cross the Vernal point, or 0 Aries, forming a square with the longitude where the latest Solar Eclipse occurred.

The concomitance of different celestial configurations, at the time of a first stimulation of Mars onto the eclipsed degree, is likely to be linked with the reemergence of widespread tensions. This may either involve the India-China standoff, or the overall social and political balance between influential nations. Also, the stock market is likely to be profoundly affected by the close occurrence of these sequential events; we may expect increased market volatility, and perhaps a downturn around the end of June and beginning of July.

This powerful series of celestial events will peak with a Lunar Eclipse which occurs on July 5th at 13Capricorn37, in opposition to the US national Sun. Presidential dynamics are likely to become prominent, during a phase in which the ongoing energetic shock of the recent Solar Eclipse will come to fruition. During those days, all eyes might be on the White House.

Eclipses are peculiar Soli-Lunar alignments which tend to unlock powerful energies within society.

2020 has been a year of major change, which will surely bring us into a more authentic world. The process is likely to be lengthy and painful, because the current dismantlement of social structures and limitations entails a great deal of work. We should perhaps begin looking at the month of July with great optimism, because it will somehow reignite the necessary energy which is needed to start walking out of the fear-ridden trench we have dug for ourselves.

There is a widespread belief about the astrological world being linked solely with prediction. Throughout the latest centuries, the philosophical depth of this discipline has been put aside, or at least partly demeaned. In a world which finds itself more and more identified with materialism and individualism, there seems to be a great need for event-related predictions. Though this still remains a valuable idea within the vastness of the astrological philosophy, we should never forget how this archaic form of knowledge is rooted in the study of resonances, rather than mere manifestations. In other words, we should be seeing the world we live in as a place which simply represents the fruit of much more mysterious trends; the connections which exist among different layers of existence act on a level of “meaning”, rather than “form”. As specified in “Fate and the Journey of Life”, those trends are intrinsic to Nature itself, whereas the events which we witness with our eyes are manifestations of a deeper scheme. The framework appears to have been set up by laws which we do not fully understand today, and it is shown as a long-term unfoldment of cyclical forces. This “scheme” might be referred to as an “Implicate Order of things”, a term coined by the American physicist David Bohm, who talked about “resonances” from a scientific point of view. It may be worth pondering upon the fact that some people manage to transcend the limits of common understanding and get a glimpse of this underlying state of things. In my opinion, it is not quite right to perceive some form of superiority in the act of “connecting” with what’s beyond, because it is simple work of the human being – divinely gifted as he is – to bridge the gap between the seen and unseen. Psychic work makes use of those unexplored and obscure faculties of the extraordinarily complex human mind. There is obviously a series of bio-chemical processes at work within the human body, but such does not fully explain human experiences such as “genius”, “love”, “passion” and so on. There are visible and quantifiable changes in biorhythms when such emotional forces set in, however, deterministic observation does not fully explain the individuality of life. Not even by resorting to the idea of “chaos” governing our lives, can the uniqueness of individual life be justified entirely. By uniqueness I refer both to gifts of life, such as talent, as opposed to the fatefulness many lives are obliged to go through. Also, the individuality of life poignantly emerges in family relationships, with the quite common dichotomy between parental interests and the predisposition of children. If there is randomness all over, why are children not always “molded” according to their parents’ wishes? Why do unfulfilled lives emerge, when high levels of psychological conditioning get established within familial structures? Psychological knowledge has gone far into these issues, and it is dutiful to cite the work of Liz Greene, who has merged astrological knowledge with psychological research in a most illuminating manner.

When looking at the inner landscape of an unfulfilled life, we identify an unfollowed innate imprint, which we might wish to call “predisposition”. If there is a blueprint to life, how can there be total randomness in the unfoldment of life? The astrologer knows there is no randomness in the realm of existence. Interestingly enough, Bohm, whose open-mindedness took him close to the mystical and philosophical worlds, gained a clear perception of this indirectly perceivable order of things. So did Einstein, but also the greatest religious mystics of all Ages, so did philosophers, and obviously astrologers as well. Astrological research shows that visionary people are commonly born under prominent aspects which involve the outer planets (Uranus, Neptune and Pluto); generally, such alignments would also involve either the Luminaries (Sun and Moon) or personal planets (Mercury, Venus, Mars). With the inner cycles representing the cosmic manifestation of more accessible forces, their interaction with outer planets often provides the human being with the capacity to tap into the unseen. Whenever this does not happen, we can often retrace a historical, familial or societal choice which generally has the power to condition the expression and acknowledgement of an individual’s innate combination of personal and transpersonal archetypes. The spiritually or philosophically inclined individual may in fact struggle enormously to socially emerge in a fashion which is fully conversant with his own predisposition. If, for instance, one is born under a tight Sun-Uranus configuration, whose reactionary power is enhanced by other factors within the natal chart, there may be a strong, undeniable tendency towards revolutionism and eccentricity; on the contrary, a Sun-Saturn individual obviously tends to find purpose in the rule of law. The intrinsic, profound and incommensurable difference between Sun-Uranus and Sun-Saturn individuals becomes greatly evident in the outer world, yet it may be unconsciously harboring within the individual’s psyche for many years or even the entire life, if not enough awareness is developed. The development of the necessary level of consciousness which is required to overcome the obstacles which hinder the free expression of certain natal configurations is often triggered by important transits, directions and progressions. For instance, the astrologically-conversant reader is well aware of phenomena such as the Saturn returns, or the astrological midlife crisis (with Uranus in opposition to its natal placement and Neptune and Pluto squaring theirs), knowing the importance of such phases of life. These turning points of the individual and collective development – such as in the case of nations and organizations – are indicative of profound inner changes, and not necessarily of outer, quantifiable and visible events. In other words, the Saturn return is an inner experience of responsibility, whereas the midlife crisis takes the individual into a phase of general reconsideration over the entire purpose of life within society. These watershed phases of life are not necessarily linked with ominous events – a consideration which used to be made quite frequently in the past – but simply of inner steps which life DEMANDS should be taken. There is in fact an inescapable trend which leads one towards inner change when specific ages are reached, but the events, decisions and circumstances which accompany them are not necessarily written somewhere. After all, we cannot even say that some kind of “destiny” is laid out already, because what is perceivable, at the current stage of human conscious development, is nothing else than an “Existential Trend”. A trend defines change over time; therefore, what the astrological researcher, or leisurely interested reader should consider is the existence of a “pace of life”. At times when important configurations descriptive of innate potentials are activated, visible shifts occur within, and possibly without, the individual or the organization affected. It is worth remembering how the USA’s two past Uranus returns have occurred during crucial phases for the nation. The first one occurred in 1860/61, coinciding with the onset of the Civil War and the fight against slavery, whereas the second one occurred in 1944, during the deepest phase of WWII, at the time when the USA was also developing immensely powerful warfare technologies. The next return will occur in 2027/28 and it will undoubtedly coincide with an important phase of social and ideological renovation for the country. Again, the actual events surrounding that astrological occurrence will not be evident to us right now, but it may become possible to intuitively guess what is to come when those times approach. In fact, any physical manifestation is dependent on many factors, which constitute what we would otherwise call the ”prevailing circumstances”. The Uranus return of an internationally influential nation such as the US is an astrological occurrence of no little importance. However, the outer manifestation of the predictable wave of ideological change cannot be foreseen or pre-calculated. This is of the utmost relevance to us, who are living in times when some have harshly criticized astrology because it did not “provide“ a prediction of the pandemic. First of all, most of the people who have put forward such idea are those who know least about this ancient form of knowledge, and usually refer to the most visible, purely commercialized, and highly simplified world of Sun Sign astrology. Also, for those who read from the most eminent astrologers of our times, would have found out about the importance of year 2020 already a long time ago. The “pandemic” would not emerge as such, obviously, but the profound shift of priorities and the globalized return to necessity and self-protection was easily, and perhaps worryingly detectable. Any planet’s position or any astrological configuration are not indicative of EVENTS, but they are accurately descriptive of SOCIAL AND INDIVIDUAL TRENDS. The shift will occur at an ideological level, but whether this will manifest as a war, scientific discovery or border redefinition is not a matter of interest. The reader who is keen on developing a more refined level of astrological understanding should seek to include these considerations in his day-to-day life, learning to better appreciate the existence of an underlying order of things. As Dane Rudhyar used to say, the living entity establishes a “relationship” with the Universe he lives in, and such “relationship-as-a-whole” is to be considered as all-inclusive and governed by multi-layered resonances.

The outer world reflects the inner one.

Life is governed by mysterious laws which we do not fully understand; yet they can be, at least partly, decoded by investigating the various ways in which life patterns are echoed all around our planet and the universe.
