Fear-mongering and the Economic Collapse of 2020

It has long been predicted by both astrologers and stockbrokers that a huge economic collapse would take place in 2020. Now that the Coronavirus (which translates as the ‘common cold’) has gotten out of control not only in China but several parts of the world, the heavy importing from China has come to a halt and has affected many large corporations and businesses including hospitals and travel agencies.

On the one hand, it’s about time that people slow down on the mass consumerism of cheaply made items infused with toxic chemicals that steal business from smaller businesses and family farms. On the other hand it’s really sad that people are losing jobs and all forms security, be they health-related, financial or emotional because of the intense changes taking place on this planet.

No matter what kind of narrative the mainstream media pushes, the one thing that we can be sure of is that the economic collapse has already been upon us and it’s just now becoming visible to more people. Mercury being Retrograde right now is not the cause of our problems but as usual reveals previous mistakes that have been made as well as issues that already exist and must be confronted.

The exact causes of collapse are difficult to decipher because of all the Neptunian/Piscean fog currently surrounding the effects, and of course because there are always hidden manipulations at work in the media. In relation to this global crisis there are silent wars taking place between various factions of government and mafia-like figures. The general population is considered by them too stupid to grasp what’s going on. Time will tell if this is true or not.

I posted this video last November with a few tips on how to handle some of the financial tension that would likely become more noticeable in 2020. What our collective survival may boil down to is a matter of how resourceful we can become in times of huge fear-mongering and when there may be less funds and resources available to draw upon. This includes becoming smarter about purchases and investments in general, and doing more research into the nature of the corporations that we pour money into.

A Magical New Moon in Pisces

That final and most ethereal sign of the Zodiac, Pisces, is currently heightened by several very strong aspects and an approaching New Moon at 4 degrees on February 23. Mercury Retrograde is featured prominently here, which accounts for many of the bizarre encounters, spiritual visions, near-death experiences and last minute saves that have occurred over the past few days.

Mars at 4 degrees of Capricorn right next to the South Node forms an exact sextile to the New Moon which is one of the stabilizing factors in what might otherwise seem like extremely shaky situations. The South Node connection may indicate forgotten abilities surfacing that can be used for important undertakings. The New Moon’s harmony with the North Node also points toward a sort of unexpected ease in major transitions.

Mars trines Uranus in Taurus while the New Moon forms a sextile to Uranus. The element of surprise has certainly been present lately, particularly involving some of the last things we would have ever expected to take place but that bring joy and remind us of how fragile life is ~ how quickly anything could be taken away and how important it is to live in the moment, savoring it and the people we love to the fullest.

Also Pisces’ two ruling planets Jupiter and Neptune are forming an energizing sextile across the New Moon “interface”. There’s so much magic brewing in the heavens right now that some of us have not known what the heck is even going on. It’s like a dream, and dreams have become more vivid and synchronistic with each passing day for some. The stuff of mystery has become more real and accessible while ironically, ordinary reality seems to be tweaking out. Venus in Aries squares Jupiter, adding to all the wonder and drama.

As Pisces represents clearing house on a cosmic level, this could be such a time to take inventory of what needs to go in order to make way for greater things in our lives. All that garbage, both psychic and physical has gotten too heavy. Now it’s being shaken loose, and by letting go the pain associated with holding onto it may also decrease.

Remember to take notes! The weirdness taking place and messages received might not all make sense right now but over the next few weeks may begin to decode themselves.

The Epic Transit of Mars through Capricorn in 2020

Mars, the planet of action has just entered hard-working Capricorn on February 16, the same day that Mercury turned Retrograde in Pisces. Mars is associated with war, accidents and rage, but in many ways may be seen as the saving grace of this time period. This is because it has not only entered the sign of its exaltation but the aspects it makes are both harmonious and energizing. The first is a dynamic trine to Uranus in Taurus, exact on February 21st. This is a huge catalyst for much-needed change in areas of stagnancy.

The second aspect is a sextile to Neptune, exact on March 14th. This helps brings dreams and visions into tangible reality. The third and fourth aspects are the conjunction to Jupiter on March 20th just after the Equinox, a major amplification to all other surrounding aspects. The final aspect of Mars in this sign a conjunction to Pluto on March 22nd. This is also the day after Saturn’s entry into Aquarius, all around making for an extremely potent but unpredictable mix.

Positively, Mars’s transit through Capricorn supports massive undertakings by adding fuel and motivation toward accomplishing goals. Longstanding obstacles may be surmounted and unfinished work may finally see completion. Nothing, not even Mercury Retrograde can stop the fierce determination arising.

However, there is also a warning implied. That is the unstoppable nature of Mars connecting with all of the outer planets in ways that bring about transformations we may or may not actually be ready to integrate. Mars with Pluto especially may indicate violent eruptions, sickness and chaos and we have recently seen glimpses of this in the political world and media.

Ultimately Mars combining with Saturn’s influence is exactly what many of us need after the long grueling boot-camp in Capricorn that has dragged on for months and months. Now there is noticeable progress, movement and breaking out of various constraints. It will require some serious effort to properly navigate these next few weeks but Mars is here to shake the cage and set us free.

The Saturn Pluto conjunction and Eclipses in China’s Natal Chart

The Saturn Pluto conjunction was building up for over a year and became exact on January 12th of 2020. The conjunction was exact on China’s natal Jupiter at 22 degrees of Capricorn in the 12th house and the effects of this are clear as day as this country has been hit hard with the recent Coronavirus outbreak. The Lunar Eclipse just two days prior to this conjunction at 20 degrees of Cancer was opposite of China’s Jupiter, which is in the spotlight for China throughout 2020, possibly affecting their ability to travel and escape from danger. Another, less spoken of danger is the 5g roll-out that occurred in Wuhan just prior to the outbreak. 5g has is a proven military weapon that is known to cause a huge list of health problems, but governments worldwide are either unaware of or gatekeeping this information.

Backtracking into December the Solar Eclipse at 4 degrees Capricorn on the 25th was opposite of China’s Uranus in Cancer, signaling shocking events (electrically related) on the horizon. By this time the virus had already taken effect but the masses were still unaware of its implications. Whistle-blower doctor Li Wenliang tried to warn others but was reprimanded by police and warned to stop spreading rumors. Soon after this he contracted the virus and died.

The New Moon on January 24th at 4 degrees of Aquarius made a conjunction with China’s Moon and Ascendant, which was also in opposition with the asteroid China. Although the world has been in a state of panic over what is happening studies have shown that this virus was apparently targeting the Chinese more than other races. Therefore it seemed to be a direct attack on China, although the power-hungry cabal and Big Pharma are capitalizing on all of the chaos, sickness, death and terror that is being generated across the globe. 

The Full Moon at 20 degrees of Leo on the 9th of February makes a conjunction with China’s Pluto in Leo – 17 degrees, which seems to reflects the deaths have occurred recently – due to the virus or something else? It just so happens that the last outbreak of SARS coincided with the Lunar Eclipse of November 19th 2002. The eclipse opposed China’s Scorpio midheaven, and attention was cast on this region for very unwanted reasons.

There are a couple more eclipses that may directly impact China in 2020, the most critical one being the Solar Eclipse of June 21st at 0 degrees of Cancer. The fact that this eclipse falls at 0 degrees of a cardinal sign signals sweeping changes and is a big deal on planet earth. It will make a conjunction with China’s Uranus, and this is likely to be a game-changer for China in some way. It’s hard to say what exactly this is going to look like as of yet. My guess is that it will reinforce their already strict cyber controls and limitations, as if this wasn’t already a huge imposition in that country. The effects of this in combination with the those of their increased 5G networks may come to a head.

The Lunar Eclipse on November 30th at 8 degrees of Gemini forms a loose opposition with China’s Chiron at 5 degrees of Sagittarius. As if China was not already hurting badly, this could be a last straw sort of influence for them. By this time it may become obvious that the country is being required to make many upgrades and alterations in many of their daily routines and ways of life. It’s possible (we can pray) that some of these are positive and healing but it’s also possible that it makes people who live there more vulnerable to outside influences and attacks.

What is happening in China has huge ramifications for the whole world. China is the most largely populated country and because of its numbers as well as its government and customs it has been difficult to keep clean and up to modern standards of hygiene. It’s also true that China has served as a major manufacturing plant that far too many Western nations have relied upon for their quick replicas of just about anything that can be sold for extremely cheap prices. This competes with and makes it difficult for many small businesses to succeed. Everybody who feels affected needs to chime in on this matter and vote with their actions and purchases, not just their voices.

As Chiron draws closer to China’s North Node in Aries within the next couple of years it may reinforce the self-preserving need that it has and this can be very good or very bad for the rest of the world’s economy. This will occur in 2022, the same year that America will experience it’s first Pluto Return.

Some hopefully good news for China is that they are soon to experience a Jupiter Return, the first hit of which coincides with the Equinox on March 19th. Saturn’s ingress into Aquarius on March 23rd begins a challenging transit to China’s Moon position. Jupiter Returns are usually favorable and occur about every 12 years. Because of Jupiter’s Retrograde motion, they get an extra long Return which hopefully helps them pick up the broken pieces of their economy and heal from the tragedies that “Coronavirus” has brought to its people.

Leo Full Moon 2/8/20 – Creative Bursts and a New Sense of Hope

The Full Moon on February 8th/9th is 20 degrees of Leo, forming a fire trine to Mars in Sagittarius. There is passionate energy surging up from the depths of being, which seeks for myriad forms of expression. Moods may be wildly fluctuating but whatever the circumstances may be there is a growing sense of hope beginning to shine through the darkness and turmoil that so many have been experiencing as of late.

The Moon is in conjunction to the fixed star Merak, signaling increased motivation to move out of stagnant situations. It also forms a conjunction to fixed star Ras Elasid Australis, whose stellar influence may empower us to bring forth our unique gifts. Enthusiasm is replacing apathy. Courage is growing out of a genuine desire to succeed. 

During this time Mercury is approaching Neptune, slowing down to turn Retrograde in Pisces, so it may be difficult to get a clear read on certain confusing issues. Paradoxically, psychic impressions are so vivid right now that the challenge could be trusting what that inner radar is picking up on and what specific actions our intuition is suggesting that we take. Mercury Retrograde begins on February 16th, backing into Aquarius on March 4th and stations Direct on March 9th. It will reenter Pisces on March 16th and complete its transit here by April 11th. This is the time to dream bigger than usual because dreams, wishes and ideas are where many tangible changes begin.

Meanwhile, Jupiter is beginning to form a sextile to Neptune (February 20th) and a conjunction to Pluto in Capricorn (exact on April 4th). These aspects are part of what is propelling us forward in a very trying year so far. Jupiter in harmony with Neptune broadens the scope of what is possible in what seems like the most impossible to improve areas of life. Imagination coupled with the willingness to try something new is often what leads to creative problem solving and breakthrough. Jupiter joined with Pluto is prompting radical change in the areas where things have gotten so extremely unbearable that there is no more tolerance left for some of the things that are draining our life force energy. This could imply a battle with someone or something that will simply not go out without a fight. It could also make us a bit more daring in what we choose to take on, with less fear of failure or mistakes.

Venus is also moving into conjunction with Chiron in Aries at the time of the Full Moon. Again what is being pointed toward is a pain threshold that is being reached. This is the kind of pain, often emotional in nature, that can kill the faint of heart. However, an unexpected gift is emerging from this long-standing pain and it is going to become very valuable in the future. For those survivors still hanging on, congratulate yourself for being a brave soul withstanding the feeling of being whipped around by tremendous forces on this planet.

Saturn in Aquarius and Cyber Attacks

In this digital age when privacy has become a thing of the past, it has become far too easy to manipulate and bamboozle millions of people into surrendering not only their personal information but their very own human rights without them even realizing it. The bureaucracy that people are required to abide by just seems to multiply by the day and nobody has time to read everything on those 58-79-300 or so pages before signing their name on the dotted lines. But that’s not the scariest thing that we face in the Age of Aquarius.

Cyber warfare, hacking and cyber attacks are some of the most recent forms of attack against nations and their military networks, in an attempt to weaken them through damaging their computer systems and blocking their information access. There is an overall campaign of spying and cyber attacking all over the world. For example during a conference, Netanyahu explained how Israel is one of the leading countries when it comes to cyber security and cyber tech. Consequently, Israel has been caught spying on both American citizens and government.

There is a development in Saudi Arabia called NEOM being built with the aim of incorporating smart cities, drawing tourists, and to quote NEOM itself, to “reinvent the relationship between people and nature”. One attraction is that the city is said to be totally powered by renewable energy resources. No doubt renewable energy resources have existed for many years the current climate change story-line is that we collectively have all abused nature to the point of needing to come together as one and rely more upon so-called “smart devices” and even entire smart cities to repair the damages that have been done. Nevermind the masterminds behind these massive and eclectic damages. It has begun to dawn on more of us how much we as a species have come to rely on modern technology and that the balance between it and our connection to nature and each other is extremely delicate, usually weighing on the side of being totally dependent upon machines.

Saturn’s transit through Aquarius

Saturn’s transit through Aquarius March 21st 2020 to March 7th 2023 is the forerunner to Pluto’s transit through this sign which will have a tremendous impact on the life on this planet, both civilized and wild. Aquarius is an intellectual air sign, concerned with science, revolutions and social movements. It is known as the most emotionally detached sign of the Zodiac. Saturn is about growing more responsible, which means that during his transit through the sign of Aquarius we have an opportunity to wake up and shape up before it’s too late.

Pluto, still in Capricorn, represents irrevocable change on a massive scale and by the time this planet sweeps through Aquarius…the individual push-back against just about anything that we don’t like or find inhumane may become even more difficult and tumultuous than it is today. That’s because under the influence of Aquarius the group mind is favored and the dark face of democracy could easily prevail. This transit begins in 2023 and lasts until 2044.

Major social media platforms have become increasingly monitored and censored with outstanding and punitive results for many users. Say something that sounds too controversial, or remotely inflammatory and your entire page along with your existing PayPal account may be shut down without notice. This is all part of the game-plan of global elitists working their way toward total world domination. They care only for their own gain and want to ensure that people aren’t even allowed to think outside the box or disagree with the consensus, let alone speak out against it. Their goal is to generate a One World Order through a One World (Digital) Currency and central government that grants them access to all that they desire and annihilates those who oppose their agenda. Lloyd Blankfein, the senior chairman of Goldman Sachs is ‘open’ to Bitcoin after he said he was against it. Now he says he wants to improve it…seems nice in theory but it’s too easy for digital currency to become corrupted. The elite are constantly scheming for ways to seize control over other peoples’ earnings. Greedy as hell right?

And let’s face it, because so much of their work has been successful up to date, there are just too many issues to address all at once, much has gotten completely out-of-control…so many areas of life have become extra complicated due to advancements in technology which is and has always been a double-edged sword.

Several companies and online programs have been spying on and selling user data for many years and it was during Saturn’s transit through Scorpio that it became very obvious with scandals such as the Ashley-Madison data breach of extra-marital affairs in July 2015. Facebook, the world’s most widely known hacker’s haven has become less popular with young people who instead turn to apps such as Instagram and Snapchat. It doesn’t matter though because these companies are ultimately holding hands and data mining just the same. The anti-virus program Avast has been selling data on every click and purchase that its users have made online.

Aquarius represents the collective mind and one collective problem is that it has become harder for anyone to discern who and what to trust, from online media sources to programs that are supposed to protect against viruses but may ultimately infect computers with a host of viruses and spyware. Even companies that don’t infect computer software cannot be trusted because their primary aim is both to hypnotize the masses and gather personal data and use it for their own, sometimes nefarious ends. This should be the cause for concern for anyone who still trusts companies such as Google and YouTube or anything related to Alphabet Inc. with their most sensitive data.

The first heavy-duty aspect that Saturn in Aquarius makes this year, beginning late March is a square to Uranus in value-focused Taurus, coming into greater effect in early 2021. Both planets rule Aquarius but they function is totally opposite ways. A hard aspect between these two spell out the kind of friction that goes beyond friction, especially when it comes to legal rights, corporate business, taxes, and ethics, reflecting the collapse of ethical and decent behavior in this day and age. Saturn goes Retrograde on May 11th backing into Capricorn on July 2nd and stations direct in Capricorn on September 29th, then renters Aquarius on December 17th. The Great Conjunction between Jupiter and Saturn in Aquarius exact on December 21st 2020 and implies significant changes underway in government, economic affairs and major trends in thought. Since politicians are aware of astrological influences they and their behind-the-scenes backers tend to generate and capitalize on widespread panic relative to the subject matters at hand.

Still, I have hope in humanity. I think it’s possible for people to “red pill” fast enough to do something about this. That is because choice itself is still an option. Thinking for ourselves is still legal. Many of us get to choose what to buy, what to eat, what to post on social media, what search engines to use, what kind of phone to use and how to use it. Robots do not yet rule the earth. Everything has not yet been cloned. Feelings are real and they are trying to tell us something. Sickness is a response to toxicity, trauma, and pain that begs to be acknowledged and healed. Intuition, although it may be linked with imagination, is more than just a fluffy unicorn.

Cyber attacks takes many forms and the real danger that is implied on large groups of people will become more obvious when Saturn transits Aquarius. This could mean more than just a few rebellious activists being trolled, doxed or sent death threats by random psychopaths. If more people don’t begin to take seriously their human rights this could mean the loss of free speech and the implementation of martial law.

There are many positive developments indicated by Saturn’s transit through Aquarius but forgive me, I wanted to get some of the worst possible scenarios out of the way first.

Sweeping World Changes and the Solar Eclipse of June 21st 2020

The year started with a Lunar Eclipse in Cancer and it’s themes will be carried out for many months. Among the six eclipses of 2020, the one that is sure to make the greatest impact on world events and the economy is the solar eclipse on June 21st, coinciding with the Solstice. This eclipse occurs at zero degrees of Cancer, which is one of the critical degrees falling in a cardinal sign. This alone gives it a special importance but there are several other factors that amplify its effects. It occurs just over a month after the North Node’s shift from Cancer into Gemini and because the North Lunar Node moves backward instead of forward into a sign, at 29 degrees it is just one degree away from the eclipse. These two signs share certain similarities but are overall quite different in expression, so there will be much crossover in how their various qualities emerge.

The last eclipse at zero degrees of Cancer occurred on June 21st 2001 and it made a conjunction to the North Node in Cancer. Often, the effect of an eclipse is carried out over several months or years and is triggered by transiting planets. This eclipse preceded the violent events that went down in Manhattan, New York on September 11, 2001 and a whole series of lies and deceit revolving around terrorism used to manipulate the masses. The efforts to restore homeland security was the focus then and is yet again, in ever-increasingly invasive ways. From full body scanners at the airport to facial recognition screens in the unexpected places, social media data mining platforms, spying smart phones, random drones, and cameras hidden on every big city sidewalk, and ever-expanding 5G networks we live in a world where so-called safety is prioritized over both privacy and adventure. Everyone must obey the rules or be punished by unelected government.

Eclipses that occur more than once at a critical cardinal degree, especially this same exact degree during a single century is seen as rare. The one before 2001 occurred on December 22nd of 1889 at zero degrees of the cardinal sign Capricorn. This sign, which has featured so prominently in the past year and a half is related to politics, industry, hard labor and large displays of power. The eclipse of 1889 was a forerunner to a major plummet of financial affairs, the stock market, and employment rates. The South Lunar Node influenced that eclipse and so much was lost and destroyed but eventually made way for new growth.

During the eclipse on June 21st of 2001 and the upcoming eclipse of June 21st 2020 the North Node was and will be a strong influence, which will clear things out of our way but bring significant new beginnings on a collective level and in our individual lives. Many of these changes are already visible and underway. Those who will experience some of the strongest effects of this eclipse have personal planets between 25-29 degrees of any mutable signs – Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius, Pisces, or between 0 and 5 degrees of any cardinal signs – Aries, Cancer, Libra, Capricorn. This eclipse falls in home-based and emotional Cancer but there is also a restless, Gemini feel to it. Gemini’s ruling planet Mercury will be Retrograde in Cancer and Venus will also be Retrograde in Gemini. There is some intense mental shifting and reckoning indicated by these transits.

Just as the one in June of 2001, this eclipse is going to hit the natal chart of the USA in a particularly strong way. During June 2001 both the Venus and Jupiter positions of the US were activated. This brought the focus onto both finances and racial conflicts, particularly with the Middle East. Saturn was coming into a conjunction with US placement of Uranus in Gemini, bringing some hard lessons around what it means to be a “free nation”.

On June 21st 2020 we can expect big events and big news with both Jupiter and Pluto forming an opposition to the US’s Mercury Retrograde in Cancer. Again, Venus and Jupiter are being activated. Venus rules money and Jupiter rules expansion and law. With all this water sign energy there could be an expansion in or awareness of maritime law. I do hope that more people become aware of rather than continuously duped by laws that they don’t understand – laws made under the guise of providing security but actually do nothing more than ensure our slavery. Thanks to our remaining free speech rights there are many who are providing education about this subject on the Internet.

Saturn will be Retrograde at zero degrees of Aquarius forming an inconjunct aspect to the Eclipse. This is another signal that there are some radical changes on the horizon that will usher in a new wave of chaos and probably also create as much separation between groups as there will be bonding across the globe. Many of these changes will become more visible during the last eclipse of the year on December 14th and the Great Conjunction on December 21st 2020, and especially in the year 2021.

In 2020, the Lunar Node polarities of Cancer and Capricorn are emphasized until midway through the year when the focus begins to shift into Gemini and Sagittarius. The eclipse of June 21st will be a marker of this shift. From building foundations to increased transportation, things could easily become overstimulating and scattered, which makes people the perfect victims for mind control. That’s only if they are not paying attention and do not have an appropriate sense of earthly boundaries. This period of time could also bring huge breakthroughs and opportunities unlike those any of us have experienced before.

The Good and Bad possible scenarios to look for around this Solar Eclipse are:

  • Major relocations (from one home or nation to another)
  • Attacks on or by the USA
  • White house scandals
  • Economic transformation
  • Increased security checks in public locations
  • Large-scale financial losses and/or windfalls, major investments
  • Protection or the lack thereof of the vulnerable, young, old, weak, etc.
  • Water disasters, water-based attacks and earthquakes
  • Water as a precious commodity
  • Shocking events in North Korea and China (their Uranus gets activated)
  • Ongoing case for illegal settlements in Middle East (Saturn activated in Palestine’s chart)
  • Corruption of bankers globally exposed
  • Families disconnect or reconnect
  • A rise in home businesses and small family-run businesses

Security or Sovereignty

This eclipse will affect everyone in some way, shape or form, to a greater or lesser degree. It will emphasize a new cycle that is underway in each of our lives. Cancer is a water sign ruled by the Moon and therefore it points toward those things pertaining to this sign which include having a solid home base to operate from, deep emotional processes, inner and outer security, relations with the public, mothering and motherhood, loyalty to people or causes, and a sense of belonging.

In a general sense, with this eclipse and the transits to follow it will become obvious whether security or sovereignty is what most people on this planet desire. The sign of Cancer is a catalyst for creating greater security in some area of life, according to the house it falls in in our natal charts and any planets being aspected. This does not just mean external security but includes a deep kind of soul level security, which is not really security anymore in the literal sense of the word but actually akin to spiritual sovereignty. In 2020, who and what we are most loyal to and vice versa will be revealed. It will become easier to break free from those things, people and places that no longer resonate with who we really are and to enter into relationships and situations that are more of a reflection of our true nature and values. There is so much more to say about what this means for us on a collective level but I’ll save my ideas for a later time and in segments that different people may find of interest.

Sometimes it seems daunting to interpret one’s own chart and to figure out just how these things may manifest on a personal level. This is when getting a chart reading by a professional astrologer with an objective view can be helpful. For me, chart interpretation in a way that helps others tap into their own intuitive wisdom is a passion. You may contact me for a reading at ReadingsByYerevan@gmail.com
