It seems quite clear that the current American standoff is reaching a tipping point. This is not to encourage concern, simply because pretty much everyone can see how rivalry is taking over the USA. The world is now approaching the long-announced ‘energetic shift’, which will be chiefly represented by the crossing of heavy planets Jupiter and Saturn from Capricorn to Aquarius. They are practically within orb of an historic conjunction already, which will initiate the Airy season of the Jupiter-Saturn cycle. There is widespread uncertainty all around the world at this point, and this unprecedented level of polarization is a harbinger of change. We are still in eclipse season, so the vibration is quite strong. The Sagittarius eclipse is likely to unlock the fiery energy that’s been rumbling beneath the surface for weeks. Increased solar activity is forecast to reach a maximum towards the end of the month, according to NOAA, so the universal forces are beyond imaginable right now. Under the powerful Sagittarian/Aquarian influence of the coming weeks, the world may even be presented with ‘foreign’ information, knowledge which for a long time has remained undisclosed. Every major planetary conjunction is accompanied by oblivion. I mentioned this phenomenon in ‘2020 – An Extraordinary Turning Point‘ back in May. In fact, conjunctions are ‘rough’ because they symbolically carry the sprouting energy of Aries. They push new things forward in a very unrefined manner, and the changes which are envisaged will slowly take hold as the cycle unfolds. This dynamic pertains to each Lunation cycle for example, New Moon being the moment of reorientation for both Self and Collective, yet often shrouded in the darkness of what’s to come.

The world upside down

As of now, we are moving on from a recent Sun-South Node conjunction, which has glamorously opened up an important chapter. The upcoming Total Solar Eclipse in Sagittarius will be quite an important one, and more about it can be found in ‘Uncharted Aquarian Territory‘. We are witnessing the unfoldment of a two-way psychological reality, which is so polarized that each side feels like being engaged in a full-blown ideological and political war. It seems that the stars are presently setting the stage for the beginning of change, but in a dangerously powerful way. With regards to the USA, we are evidently looking at an escalation of forces which is being fueled by the recent judicial actions. Whichever side the people will take at this point adds more energy to the developing situation. It seems likely that these issues won’t be easily resolved for quite a while. It is important to remember that the upcoming Solar Eclipse of December 14th will oppose the Gemini Mars of the 1776 American Independence chart.

Mars-Pluto and ‘regeneration’

In a previous article, I looked at the ongoing Mars-Pluto cycle and how it has clearly assisted the current buildup of popular discomfort. The conjunction was exact on March 23rd at 24Capricorn43, and it initiated a worldwide escalation of fear. Obviously, the pandemic cannot be resumed in a single planetary cycle. I have outlined in several articles how the complexity of this astrological year has in fact thrown around multiple influences upon the world at large. Going back to the Mars-Pluto cycle, we are now about to complete the waxing square phase of it. This means that Mars will make a final waxing square to Pluto on December 23rd from the 23rd degree of Aries. That is also where the highly inflammatory dwarf-planet Eris is standing right now. This simply indicates a climax of popular discord. The waxing Mars-Pluto square has been prolonged, due to the retrogradation of the red planet, which has been unleashing a lot of ‘raw’ forces among society since August. Mars won’t start making an undisturbed journey until late January, because of its squares to Jupiter, Saturn and Pluto. This very charged planetary interaction will eventually push this world towards a new start. At the waxing phase of the Mars-Pluto cycle, we have been facing the widespread effects of the pandemic upon the economy and society with more realism. The psychological and monetary backlash of a prolonged series of restrictions have been huge. We are still facing the ‘manifestation’ of a new force, which seems to be both reactionary and regenerative.

Goodbye 2020

The days following the Solstice (December 21) will be quite dynamic. Not only will the Jupiter-Saturn conjunction have perfected, but also we will see how Mars will start to unleash its assertive force upon the world at large. This is not a dire warning at all, because the matrix of all these phenomena is archetypal. However, it is important to tread quite carefully through the next weeks leading to the end of January. We are now entering a very dynamic phase of this ‘pandemic’ year. In order to step into new territory, some degree of ‘excitement’ has to occur. This becomes obvious when looking at historical facts. Whatever changes will be presented during the next few weeks, they will be met with resistance and discord.

The European Storm

Not only is the situation quite critical in the USA, but also in Europe. December 2020 is an important ‘gateway’ to the future, astrologically speaking. As specified in ‘The Eurozone Under Stress‘, it is evident that the EU is approaching a new phase. The Saturn-Jupiter cycle is highly resonant with European dynamics. For instance, the last conjunction brought the Euro currency into the world market. We can see how the Brexit deal struggle is now renewing winds of instability across Europe. How will the union weather this storm? How many countries will tremble under the pressing decisions about the Recovery Fund? How will Poland’s and Hungary’s vetoes affect the EU? Most importantly, how will the UK reemerge from a possible no-deal Brexit? It is going to eventually transition into a new age of UK-USA relationships? Someone mentioned it is 1776 again. This is probably the feeling which many Americans are sharing right now, so are we looking at another phase in history that will eventually bring closer the old kingdom and the new world? Isn’t Pluto returning to the position it held in 1776? What a clear social manifestation of a nation’s Pluto return… How is China going to work through this situation? Are we witnessing another cyclical shift of supremacy towards the East? This is likely and it seems to be occurring already. The upcoming Saturn-Uranus waning square, closing towards the next conjunction of 2032 swill probably bring this shift into fruition. Famous astrologer Andre Barbault outlined this cyclical shift years ago. It seems that the American spirit is well alive right now, but impending changes are afoot for this nation. It is hard to envisage how the federation of 50 might survive the upcoming Pluto return and second Neptune opposition. I have briefly outlined the astrological scenario of the 2020-2030 decade in two articles: ‘Gemini – Virgo & American History‘ and ‘USA Horoscope: a Long Presidency Ahead?‘.

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. Time will show us how important this moment is. Many people are unfortunately unaware of the historical importance of this pivotal year.

green leaf plant on brown wooden stump
Time in here slows down
I feel Life reversed
Clearly I can see
Sides along this road
with my fears and hopes
Fleeting as it is
The journey of this Life
Steers away from light

Cold becomes my face
Dry wind touching it
I let go of those lines
Which once so safely moored me
To a world of greed
Good ol' Man demands
Listen to thy Soul
Wait for light to come

A clear energetic shift is occurring right now. Those who appreciate their innate sensitivity may have felt the powerful station of Saturn these days. The planet of ‘wisdom’ has been moving through Capricorn since December 2017, reassessing structures and boundaries worldwide. Having already made a quick entrance into the next sign, it will eventually enter Aquarius in two and a half months, on December 17th.

What is this sign change going to be about?

Aquarius is an Air sign, so the upcoming transit of Saturn, its co-ruler, will address the intellectual side of things, steering away from the phase of dismantlement we have been going through. Though it seems that this world has recently slipped into unmanageable chaos, the Capricornian frenzy which has been dominating the global scene since January 2020 has actually opened the gates of triumph for humanity. Though it sounds quite controversial, this has to be contextualized within a long-term view of social evolution. Since late 2017 the buildup of static energy has been proceeding at a very slow and almost indistinguishable pace (in perfect resonance with Saturn’s symbolism), affecting global politics, finance, the environment and individual lives.

By the time the new year sets in, the focus will shift on humanitarian issues. It is likely that we will be called to respond to a long period of structural dismantlement which has simply rearranged (forcefully) the complacent approach of a greedy race, humans.

Visibly, the gradual buildup of conservative energy has coincided with the approaching phase of the Saturn-Pluto conjunction, which this year has manifested in the form of a massive reorientation of social dynamics.

One important thing astrology teaches us all is that cycles dominate Existence as a whole; nothing is permanent. The ever-changing cosmic landscape is reflected within ourselves and all around the planet we inhabit, along the unceasing process of social evolution.

As Saturn new stations retrograde we all look at new ways of making business, restarting a severely damaged economy and embracing the demands of Nature in more authentic ways.

Humanity is being called to reinvent Life.

I am confident in saying that the long transit of Saturn through Capricorn, with the peak experience of its meetup with Pluto and Jupiter will be seen as a necessary process of ‘Collective Ego-shedding‘.

Shortly, the world will enter a new phase of conscious evolution, dictated by the 29-yearly cycle of Saturn, as it aligns with Jupiter in early Aquarius on a historic Airy conjunction. The stream is shifting towards the interconnections of futuristic life, and possibly technocracy.

Hopefully the human race will manage to understand where boundaries need to be drawn around the delicate spirituality of Man, without being affected by the products of its own brutal, yet divine intellect.

Peace comes from within. Do not seek it without.

The Autumn Equinox has arrived, the Sun slides into the Southern Celestial Hemisphere. In Mundane Astrology, one cannot overestimate the importance of quarterly ingresses of the Sun. The moment the Sun enters one of the Cardinal signs (Aries, Cancer, Libra or Capricorn) contains astrological clues about the months to come. This year’s Libra Ingress of the Sun will occur on September 22nd, under a series of interesting planetary aspects.

Mundane Analysis of the 2020 Autumn Equinox

As expected, throughout the last lunar month several countries have experienced either social unrest or parliamentary movements, in line with an international manifestation of the ongoing reassessment of social structures. Japan’s PM Shinzo Abe resigned for health reasons; it is quite interesting to see that last month’s New Moon in Leo, which in “A Fiery Month Ahead” was interpreted as the potential trigger for a series of governmental shifts, fell at the local Midheaven over Tokyo. A coup set destabilization in Mali, Hong Kong protests have started gaining momentum again, several North American cities are plagued with widespread unrest, and what is currently going on in Belarus is another clear demonstration of the powerful energies at play. The enhanced influence of Mars has also manifested in the form of wildfires; once again, California has unfortunately been afflicted by extensive blazes. Wishing for a quick recovery and safe evacuation of all those involved. Until the next New Moon arrives, this monthly trend will not have been completely expressed yet.

NEW MOON – September 17th 2020 7:00:03 AM EDT +4 – Washington DC
Geocentric Tropical Projection, Placidus House System, Mean Node

The next Soli-Lunar conjunction will occur on September 17th, and it will fall at 25Virgo00, in a wide opposition to Neptune in Pisces, a harmonious trine to Jupiter-Saturn-Pluto in Capricorn, and a fastidious sesquiquadrate to Uranus in Taurus.

This lunar month will represent a so-called “Moon Wobble phase”, because the Sun-Moon conjunction will be at right angles to the Lunar Nodes in Gemini/Sagittarius.

This particular Moon Wobble phase shows the Sun-Moon conjunction squaring the Nodal Axis with a less-than-one-degree orb.

Moon Wobble phases are intermediate steps between eclipse seasons, and they represent times of particular instability in the yearly cycle of the Sun. They bring a generalized feeling of critical change, and society tends to look for some kind of reorientation, as it represents a phase of temporary crisis along the yearly Soli-Lunar journey of conscious realization.

A mixed message transpires from this lunation, which after all takes a responsible, methodical approach, yet it carries an illusory flavor. Virgo is mundanely related to workers, healthcare, service and law enforcement personnel. It is in fact the sign of “subordination”, which in its most positive form can be regarded as “duty and service”. The Virgoan approach is always methodical and often driven by criticism. Attention to detail is a priority when this particular sign becomes emphasized. The next New Moon may therefore bring up a very different theme into the world scene, because we might start to see what serious consequences the ongoing slowdown is having on certain parts of society.

We might expect the working classes, trade unions, public service and healthcare workers to take a prominent stance in the current situation.

A large part of society may seek insubordination or demand better living conditions, as the Soli-Lunar conjunction will receive the influence of democracy-oriented Neptune and reactionary Uranus. With Mercury – ruler of Virgo – in tight square with an almost stationary Jupiter, the need to develop a deeper understanding of facts will be high. New agreements related to the themes above mentioned may be constructively signed or discussed, and we might even expect some countries to take some distance from intergovernmental organizations or coalitions. Interestingly, Brexit talks have been reignited once more, as the UK threatens to trash the deal. With Virgo involved, environmental awareness may be a prominent theme as well, hopefully bringing about constructive developments in a world which is still seeking its true direction.

Also, with Virgo being akin to health matters and well-being in general, significant developments in the fight against COVID-19 may start to appear. The pharmaceutical industry may acquire more visibility during the coming lunar month, and the controversial question about vaccines may be in the news even more.

It is worth noticing that the New Moon in question will be “angular” over two important cities. In Washington DC it will be rising, whereas it will be culminating over Berlin. This indicates that both the USA and Germany will possibly feel the influence of this lunar month the most. Mars in Aries turns retrograde on September 10th, under a highly influential square to Jupiter, Saturn and Pluto in Capricorn. Interestingly, this event will affect the Euro currency chart, which carries a tight Venus-Saturn square around those Cardinal degrees.

Considering the fact that Berlin appears to be prominently connected with the next lunation, we may expect some shakeups within the Eurozone’s financial Establishment.

On September 11th the Sun opposes Neptune at 19 degrees of Virgo-Pisces. It is worth noticing that such configuration will affect the Piscean Moon of the German republic’s 1990 chart; astrologically speaking, this is an indication of the possible rise of strong democratic/liberal movements nationwide. The New Moon in question will fall in close conjunction with the zodiacal position of Mercury in the German chart; trade, workforce, transportation and healthcare may demand reassessment throughout the next weeks. Also, we might expect international visibility and increased dynamism within governmental circles in Germany.

France’s national Saturn is located at 20 degrees of Sagittarius, and the upcoming configuration might start off some domestic reorientation of structures and traditional values. Throughout the next months, as the South lunar node approaches the 20th degree of Sagittarius, tightening the orb with Neptune in square from Pisces, the country may need to face new challenges related to the conservation of its own stability. On the long term this may affect finance, legislation and even the governmental balance.

The upcoming Moon Wobble will potentially heighten tensions in the Middle East again, perhaps in connection with the increasing financial pressure which comes from both America and the EU. Oil prices may be significantly affected, with the New Moon squaring the Nodes and opposing Neptune in Pisces.

On the other side of the pond, we find a strongly shaken country which is approaching its next presidential elections with a remarkable degree of popular disorientation. As specified already, the New Moon will be rising over Washington DC, addressing the needs of the people and possibly questioning the direction taken by the country. This configuration may indicate that a new path may slowly start to open up for the USA, and several parts of the population may call for renewal and the betterment of social conditions.

The New Moon configuration will activate the 1776 Independence chart’s Mars-Neptune square, which was powerfully stimulated last June (read more on “The Dance of Fire“). In fact, certain planetary alignments in Mutable signs have recently released enormous amounts of social dissatisfaction within the country. All in all, another confused month is likely to be in store for the USA.

FULL MOON – October 1st 2020 5:05:06 PM EDT +4 – Washington DC
Tropical Geocentric Projection, Placidus House System, Mean Node

The next Full Moon will occur on October 1st and it will fall at 9Aries08, in close conjunction with the asteroid Chiron, during an almost exact Mars-Saturn square (which will be on its second hit because of Mars’ retrogradation). By then, a lot of rogue, unrefined ‘martial’ energy may be out and about. This could be constructively channeled thanks to Chiron, whose purpose is to show the path to healing and understanding. Yet, whenever Chiron is involved, society is asked to come across its deepest wounds and most profound uncertainties, first of all.

Hopefully, the next Full Moon will not awaken any further warfare rhetoric, guiding us towards a more constructive use of that ‘wounded’ warrior-like energy which has been ravaging the global scene for months, perhaps through talks of disarmament rather than further standoffs.

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!

US Election Update

A very interesting situation is unfolding in the USA. As the world watches with mixed feelings, the country remains uncertain about its 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.

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.

The current astrological climate is so tense that the financial equilibrium is at stake, to say the least. The global economy has come to a great, unprecedented stall. This does not necessarily involve violent predictions which foresee the worst, unimaginable economic scenarios, but it simply reminds us that whatever crisis ALREADY going on in this world is of “historic” importance.

The International Monetary Fund’s Managing Director, Kristalina Georgieva, has recently addressed the current economic situation as a period of “Great Reset“; the current situation, she says, is demanding that the most wealthy nations change their course and hopefully help shrink the great divide among different countries that has been rising throughout the last months.

Even in the 21st century, a pandemic has had the absolute power to shake the global economy so badly that we all risk witnessing an utter dismantlement of the global equilibrium. This does not only affect the economic sphere, but it can also lead to military and nationalistic defensiveness or offensiveness. The situation is indeed pretty grim during this Capricornian phase of historic reassessment.

Where does all this destabilizing power come from? Is it really a mere effect of the so-blamed “COVID-19” which, after all, still has to be thoroughly studied, amidst multilateral claims about its questionable danger for those with no underlying medical conditions? Let’s look at this whole situation from a purely astrological perspective, as we try to search for objectiveness during a time which is RULED by inconsistency and multilateral interests.

The current major influence, as explained in “2020 – An Extraordinary Turning Point“, is the concomitant start of two slow planetary cycles in the sign of Capricorn: Saturn-Pluto and Jupiter-Pluto. As specified already, the massive imbalance of the zodiacal panorama towards Earthy Capricorn has evidently resulted in the onset unprecedented challenges which have largely affected the global business. Only one Saturn-Pluto conjunction occurred in January this year, but this does not mean that its influence would just peak at that time. In fact, with astrological transits, we generally have to consider obs simply because they serve as a practical tool for the astrologer in determining periods of intense activity; however, if we look at the current situation in cyclical terms, these major conjunctions in Capricorn have just signaled the start of a long period of change whose effects will remain with us for many years. As specified by the IMF, this is a period of Great Reset; a definition which I find so conversant with the long-term truth that it seems to have been coined in astrological fashion.

The 2020 Archetypal War

Each new cycle brings as a new promise, and not only a temporary crisis; the difference here is that the crisis is so profound because of the importance of those planets involved. Experienced astrologers know that there are inherent differences among each single planetary cycle. In other words, there is a “natural hierarchy” at play, no matter how in times of “wokeness” everybody follows the current trends and starts thinking in egalitarian terms. This is evident because even in the 21st century, social, racial and religious issues unfortunately stain our society in often outrageous ways. What the timeless wisdom of astrological thought can teach us here is that humanity finds growth only through honoring and respecting such differences. The important fact to keep in mind here is that no alignment of Saturn and Pluto ever feels as a “peaceful walk in Central Park”.

As an example, let’s consider the case of a common person born under a tight Sun-Neptune opposition. Here the astrologer identifies an individual predisposition which involves surrender and empathy. However, not everyone born under such a configuration is able to fulfill the “utopian and spiritual” promises of Neptune, because of social, financial and educational pressures which influence the individual since early childhood. This is the main factor that often gives natal Neptunian configurations a “deceptive” and “negative” reputation. An individual’s downfall emerges from the inability to cope with inner demands – which set him apart from the rest of society – which are often opposite to modern trends.The latter are commonly aimed at promoting self-establishment through financial, self-centered achievement. The inner, and often unconscious, attempt at “ignoring” the differences which make each individual on Earth uniquely gifted for his own unique life, leads to very troubled grounds indeed. If you name this hypothetical individual “Richard Nixon“, you find out how Sun-Neptune configurations are also connected with scandals; a typical, yet not necessary, fact in case the person carrying that natal aspect becomes a prominent political figure and decides to suppress his innate predisposition towards non-individualistic endeavors.

Going back to our financial outlook for this year, no matter how “optimistic” and “fair-minded” we want to be, we will always stumble upon the STILL ONGOING Pluto-Saturn-Jupiter astrological dance. One may wonder, why have these times had different repercussions on the various States and Organizations? The answer lies, at least partly, in how the conjunctions have affected national charts.


UN United Nations Astrology Chart Mundane Horoscope
United Nations – Oct 24th 1945 (0 Aries Rising) – v9.0.26

An outstanding influence is being exerted, first and foremost, on the United Nations‘ foundation chart. The October 24th 1945 chart shows a Mars-Saturn conjunction in Cancer. Such configuration is indicative of the use of organized force which, combined with the remarkable Venus-Jupiter-Chiron-Neptune Stellium in Libra, speaks of “peacekeeping“. This chart is strongly equipped with two starkly opposing configurations, one being highly “disciplined” and “protective” and the other exuding “diplomacy”, “redeeming qualities” and “utopianism”.

The current congregation of heavy planets in Capricorn is intensely and repeatedly activating the Mars-Saturn conjunction in Cancer. This indication alone, which involves a huge and prolonged intensification of pressure on the UN’s chart, is suggestive of heightened tensions which definitely undermine the fighting spirit and structure of an international organization which claims to promote peace and prosperity. Obviously, considering that 23-24 degrees Cardinal are emphasized in many important charts, we understand why the current situation has simultaneously affected various political, social and financial organizations.


Italy Mundane Astrology Chart Mundane Horoscope
Italian Republic – June 10th 1946, 16:00 GMT, Rome – SOLAR FIRE v9.0.26

Italy has been in the news quite a lot during the past months. Even if some simplistic astrological claims have associated the Italian Republic’s Gemini Sun with “lung-related problems”, the Jupiter-Saturn-Pluto influence has played an important role on the country’s violent involvement with the pandemic. By the time Mars joined the major brigade in Capricorn, Italy and other countries started off with an unprecedented wave of “global lock-down”. The chart of the Italian Republic shows a Venus-Saturn conjunction in Cancer, across 21-23 degrees. It goes without saying that the unexpected dismemberment of social and emotional equilibrium within the country was to undergo immense changes. Those changes have actually just begun because, as Jupiter, Saturn and Pluto will retrograde towards another close opposition to those very degrees, the tension will undoubtedly escalate again. Slow transits to heavy planets are IMMENSELY significant in mundane astrology.

It is a common knowledge that when the Sun or a “timing” planet like Mars and Mercury, join an ongoing astrological struggle between slow-moving planets, the issues which have been brewing thus far eventually become manifest in the world of form.

Saturn and Pluto formed an exact conjunction in January, but it was not until Mars joined in that the whole world got alarmed. Simply, Mars ignited an ongoing planetary pressure which had been powerfully building up over the course of months. Coincidentally, with the Lunar Nodes transiting towards the early degrees of Cancer/Capricorn, the planetary siege came at a time when recent eclipses were still actively significant in the same area of the zodiac. This further explains why the transit of Mars through Capricorn earlier this year coincided with the fast-paced dismantlement of freedom and the onset of widespread fear.


IMF Monetary Fund Astrology Chart Mundane Horoscope
International Monetary Fund – Dec 27th 1945 Noon Chart, Washington – SOLAR FIRE v9.0.26

On the economic side, it is quite interesting to take a look at the IMF establishment chart, cast for December 27th 1945. The chart shows a massive Jupiter-Saturn square across the same Cardinal degrees, accompanied by Mars, Chiron and the Moon. This complex configuration brings great focus on financially-oriented Jupiter; however, like the United Nations’ chart, it nonetheless carries the same protective, conservatory and tenacious Mars-Saturn conjunction in Cancer. The current buildup of planets in Capricorn is heavily challenging the equilibrium of this chart as well, which inherently carries an intensely charged and complex square whose destabilization can cause real financial trouble around the world.


NYSE Stock Exchange - Astrology Chart Mundane Horoscope
New York Stock Exchange – May 17th 1792 10:00 AM LMT +4:56:02, NYC – SOLAR FIRE v 9.0.26

The New York Stock Exchange was founded in 1792 and it still remains the leading Stock Exchange in the world. The global financial scenario rattles when this chart is heavily influenced by transits, directions and progressions. Once again, we find a significant configuration which spans across the third decanate of Cardinal signs, In this case we find a tight Jupiter-Neptune conjunction in Libra opposing both Saturn and the Moon in Aries. Regardless of the precision of the Moon’s position, given the lack of an official and accurate time for this old chart, an inherent complex within this chart is being powerfully activated during these months. The Jupiter-Neptune conjunction perfectly matches the volatile, yet visionary, force which animates the world’s leading stock exchange. Immense quantities of wealth are circulated through speculative action in one of the oldest trading floors in the world. Saturn in opposition enhances the ability to count on fierce competition and durability. Here we find a slight difference, as Saturn and Neptune are placed respectively in the 26th and 27th degrees of their signs. This might describe the expectable “delayed backlash” which the so far single-wave pandemic may exert on the stock market. This implies that when the inner planets, as well as the Sun, will align with the latter part of any Cardinal signs, at a time when Jupiter, Saturn and Pluto still remain close to each other in Capricorn, all the issues which seem to have partly subdued will most likely reemerge under a new, and perhaps, more aggressive fashion. Change comes in waves, as these degrees will get activated again and again, joining the ongoing dance that is threatening the business-oriented realm of Capricornian conservatism. In this regard, it is worth noting the date of July 20th. On that day a heavily loaded New Moon will fall at 28Cancer27, in tight opposition to retrograde Saturn, which will have reentered Capricorn by then. The four weeks which follow will probably increase volatility in the global financial scene, most likely due to important governmental actions which could be announced by the leading nations.

There seems to be a far deeper entanglement than imagined here, which goes way beyond the pandemic. The global media has been obviously prospering from their suffocating coverage of the COVID-19 craziness which, in its tragedy, has definitely proven a good way of enhancing mediatic activity and, for some, propaganda. In the continuous shifts which the global scene is experiencing, the focus is now directed almost entirely to the ongoing violence which is marring the USA. Who knows what will come next, in a year which, after all, has deeply affected the poorest nations way more than those ones which can afford to raise the winds of warfare.

global evolution astrology mundane forecast world news mundane horoscope

This year has come with fears, uncertainty and sorrow. It is now possible to say that society as a whole, regardless of race and creed, has been involved in the ongoing turmoil which has been restricting those cherished – and perhaps given-for-granted – freedoms which had allowed the latest generations to thrive freely and constructively. One question rises spontaneously as we are all struggling under fearful change: are we looking at a negative milestone in history? Absolutely NOT…

This year’s unusual concentration of slow-moving planets within a small section of the zodiac is a detail of great importance. However, the time for the ripening and widespread application of these new social ideas hasn’t come yet. Does this mean that astrology has been proposing the idea that our lives are “dependent” on the cosmos? The answer is no, society is not “dependent” on anything. However, for millennia the astrological world has been aware of the unmistakable resonance which permeates different layers of existence. What emerges from the analysis of cosmos is not any “predictable event”, but the underlying pattern of social development. This pattern unfolds through a cyclic series of perturbation, dismantlement and rebuilding.

It is worth looking at the ongoing patterns which accompany and rule these important months. The astrological community has recently been trying to catch minute details among the often-confusing buzzing reality of the cosmos. Many have proposed the idea that one specific aspect, planet, or asteroid has been “responsible” for the pandemic. My idea is that heavy-weight, slow planetary dynamics should to be assessed first and foremost.


Three MAJORLY important cycles originate in 2020:

Saturn-Pluto

  • January 12th, 22Capricorn46

Jupiter-Pluto

  • April 4th, 24Capricorn53
  • June 30th, 24Capricorn06 (Retrograde conjunction)
  • November 12th, 22Capricorn51

Saturn-Jupiter

December 21st, 0Aquarius29


One does not need to be an astrologer to understand that society has not yet reached a point which even faintly represents the opportunity to move forward.

The last three Saturn-Pluto cycles have originated in 1914/15, 1947, 1982; this gives us an idea of the peculiarity of this cosmic encounter. It is not right to associate this cycle solely with wars, famines and pandemics, because its influence over humanity is not that simple and straightforward. As with all things in astrology, we have to look at the underlying psychological dynamics which accompany the onset of such major events of the skies. Saturn itself, in its 29-year cycle, describes a “growing pattern“. Saturn’s transit through the various sectors of a person’s natal chart describes the shifts along the progressive development life compels one’s inner realm to go through. Traditionally, studies have shown how Saturn entering a new astrological House or Sign just brings new “troubles”. To a certain extent that statement has its value, but it nonetheless constitutes a shamelessly limited vision over the more complex reality which supports Saturn’s astrological meaning. The influence of this planet, taskmaster-in-chief and timekeeper of the zodiac, is that of rebuilding structures and fostering responsibility. In other words, the arrival of Saturn into one’s specific area of life signals the time when one can overcome certain issues and obstacles; oftentimes such process turns out to be extremely painful and unfriendly, but it helps in building responsibility. Saturn’s alignments often cut ties with the past, surprisingly enough, given that its influence strongly relates to what “has been”. This occurs simply because through the experience of Saturn’s transits and progressions, there is a need to “re-structure and re-organize” our lives in realistic ways which are fully in tune with the current trends. It is possible that ongoing restrictions have to be acknowledged and accepted, or new blockages may be raised, but the final goal is that of achieving wisdom and stability. No wonder Saturn is often quite hard to welcome in our lives, but this definition, simple as it is, goes a long way from the simplistic denomination of it as a “malefic“.

Pluto is quite small and the scientific community kind of underrated it at the beginning of the new millennium. From a deterministic point of view, the planetoid is understandably “inferior” to the rest of the Solar System’s main participants but, from a purely astrological point of view, the story is quite different. Almost a century of study and observation has given astrologers the absolute right to say that Pluto’s cycle significantly drives the evolutionary trends of humanity, as it leads to profound, irreversible changes. One example which gives us an idea of this faraway planet’s energetic essence is the unrestrained global development of power which characterized the years following its discovery. Humanity became officially aware of its presence in 1930, at the beginning of a decade which saw the rise of unbelievably violent ideologies.

Oftentimes, Pluto is the “chief malefic” of the zodiac, but such restrictive consideration obviously fails to describe the importance of that little, faraway planet.

The cycle of Pluto corresponds with long-term developments which constitute the “rise and fall of societal dynamics and ideologies“. Every “death” constitutes the opportunity for “regeneration”. This is a symbolic fact, as it refers to the recurring shifts which bring individuals and society into new, fertile territories. Important points in its relative motion through the skies undoubtedly correspond with watershed moments in history.

Jupiter is a more uplifting planet, because its 12-year cycle is evidently indicative of a more ideological, philosophical, visionary trend. If Saturn and Pluto generally precipitate things into extreme seriousness, Jupiter tends to initially aggrandize and inflate. The indulgent qualities of this astrological fellow are oftentimes equally disturbing; if no awareness resides within the individual or the collective, things often get out of control. Jupiter’s realm is often masked by a veil of optimistic self-indulgence.

At the beginning of each astrological cycle there is usually a certain degree of obliviousness, which accounts for the initial upset which accompanies every planetary ingress or conjunction, including each Soli-Lunar cycle. At each significant New Moon the energy is quite primitive and it fosters novelty. Though a feeling that something new is coming may exist, no one seems to be ready to act yet. The conscious emergence of new challenges is often fully evident around the first square, whereas the “fruits” of each cycle are generally harvested at the opposition. At the waning square the existing structures start to crumble under the need for change.

The Jupiter-Pluto interaction principally brings us face-to-face with the ongoing currents of thought, addressing the needs to revolutionize any outdated trends. This cycle lasts around one and a half decade, but this year’s significant start gives it a very different flavor. This year brings a wave of change which “glorifies” the immensely regenerating power of Pluto.

In simple words, the extensive presence of such planets in Earthy Capricorn initiates a process of social, economic and structural breakdown.

Capricorn represents the 10th evolutionary phase of the zodiacal circle; in cyclical terms, its symbolism relates to the peak experience of organization and power; however, it also reminds us of the crucial dismemberment of preexisting structures. Such is a necessary dynamic which allows humanity to reach new horizons. Together with Aquarius and Pisces, Capricorn represents the third quarter of the zodiac, which addresses “collective dynamics“. Capricorn is traditionally associated with structures and boundaries; this primarily refers to the immaterial world of “discipline and authority“. Obvious manifestations of Capricornian qualities in our world are governments and conservative realities. The incumbent Jupiter-Saturn-Pluto interaction in Capricorn aims at “reassessing and shifting” the present equilibrium of those structures. It also has to be acknowledged that Saturn will retrograde back into Capricorn on July 2nd and it will not leave the sign until December 17th, four days before the Aquarian cycle starts.

The disintegration of power and structure is not over yet.

Quite likely, over the next few years many powerfully structured organizations will either shift their ideologies, evolving into different social realities, or disintegrate violently under the force of growing awareness.

JUPITER-SATURN

The next Jupiter-Saturn cycle begins in early Aquarius in December this year, on the day of the Northern Winter Solstice. In astrological terms, that day offers the Solar Ingress into Capricorn. There is widespread optimism around this upcoming conjunction in the astrological community, an idea which definitely has its value. In fact, the shift of planetary influence towards Airy Aquarius is not going to be insignificant at all. It will undoubtedly represent an important “de-ballasting moment” after a year of tribulation, heaviness, sorrow and fear. However, it is not quite right to readily bestow the upcoming conjunction with qualities of an utterly redeeming type. It is way too common, at times of widespread upheaval, to try and identify a “savior”!

Mundane Astrology Horoscope Jupiter Saturn Conjunction Aquarius
Jupiter-Saturn conjunction in Aquarius – December 21st 2020
(Geocentric, Mean Node, 0 Aries Rising)
SOLAR FIRE v9.0.26

Let’s stick to the fact that each planetary conjunction, as specified already, coincides with a moment of oblivion. A new cycle is born, but its meaning and form are not yet easily visible and appreciable. There are strong indications of an important shift occurring towards the late part of 2020 and the beginning of 2021. However, its full meaning won’t be readily evident to humanity. Society may feel that a certain ‘psychological weight’ has been somehow transmuted into a widespread need for “freedom and knowledge“. This will enormously help the community recover from the ongoing situation. It does not necessarily mean that the world will easily go back to its recent business; by that time something will have irrevocably shifted. Year 2021 will bring a series of Saturn-Uranus squares in Fixed signs, which will activate some important mundane astrological charts. This revolutionary trend with be especially strong when acting across mid-Aquarius to mid-Taurus. It is likely that tensions will escalate, as mankind struggles to reach the accept a ‘new normality’. This explains how the upcoming Jupiter-Saturn conjunction, though liberating, will be an initially destabilizing leap into uncharted territory. It seems that 2020’s destabilizing effect will evoke the need to address matters of a humanitarian nature. All that is so dear to Aquarius has in fact been negated, because of the widespread social restrictions. This trend of widespread fear is likely to come again in waves, as the next two Jupiter-Pluto conjunctions occur.

However, such ideas will take many years, along the Jupiter-Saturn 2-decade cycle, to unfold and become real. The upcoming conjunction in groundbreaking Aquarius will open a window to the future; a peak experience will occur at the beginning of the next decade. The 2030s will in fact represent the blossoming phase of the current wave of social dismantling and regeneration.

The kind of awareness which is set to arise throughout the next decade is likely to be related with “humanitarian” issues

The middle part of this year will most likely see a “repeated intensification of restrictions“, as the world might feel that many issues still have to be reassessed and dealt with. In fact, the current uncertainty which dominates the global market, as well as any governmental institution, is also related to the quantity of retrograde planets. Stacked on one quarter of the zodiac, Jupiter, Saturn, Neptune and Pluto turn retrograde as the Sun gets separated from them.

Amidst the ongoing confusion and despair, the mid-part of this year is a phase of reassessment, and hopefully “understanding“.
