Pluto Retrograde 2020 – Social Upheaval and Massive Rites of Passage

Pluto, the planet that is most closely associated with the underworld of crime, money and other matters that influence the masses is turning Retrograde on April 25th until October 4th. Pluto represents powerful currents of energy that can effect the consciousness of an entire nation or the world as a whole. These currents can come from natural or unnatural sources. Their forces can be extremely jarring and even fatal. Nuclear fission, large explosives and major power plants all fall under this planet’s dominion.

Ordinarily Pluto expressed in an inverted way would be less forceful than when direct, but it would be wishful thinking to expect a tapering off of Pluto’s immense effects any time soon. This Retrograde station is set off by an agitating square to Mercury and the Black Moon Lilith in Aries (BML coming into greater effect in July). Stressful contacts between communicative Mercury and manipulative Pluto often indicate that the propaganda machine is heavy at work, with the crisis dial being raised a hundredfold.

On a smaller scale, depending on the houses being transited and any personal planets that Pluto makes aspects to, many individuals may experience significant endings during this Retrograde period. These could relate to physical or metaphorical death and whatever occurs could be significantly life-altering. This could also be seen as a rite of passage that leads to some other form of expression, relationship or living overall.

As for me as an astrologer, I’ve let go of caring about being seen as a “conspiracy theorist” in an age when humanity is being hypnotized by massive glamour and a constant shit-storm of lies and psychic attack through the media. What I do care about is truth, justice and freedom. The Black Moon Lilith in Aries is an aspect of the maligned feminine that is currently coming to bear with legitimate anger and a desire to break free from abusive patterns.

The second of three conjunctions this year occurs between Jupiter and Pluto on June 30th while Pluto is Retrograde. This year Jupiter has been expanding all of the themes relevant to Pluto’s transit through the late degrees of Capricorn by exposing the corruption of giant conglomerates funded by the power elite, and their not-so-hidden agenda to seize control of the entire world population, or more specifically, anything and anyone who isn’t part of their V.I.P. club. If it wasn’t Covid-19 it would have been something equally frightening being utilized to usurp our freedoms and push businesses both large and small into deeper debt and widespread economic slavery than anyone alive today has ever seen. Actually, the speedy roll-out of 5G technology, which has coincided with the pandemic is a huge danger that threatens all life on earth. Yet there is far less information being spread about it than the virus. The issue itself has been marginalized and categorized as a conspiracy theory, making it easier for this monstrous energy weapon to sweep through our cities and small towns, without the true consent of citizens.

That doesn’t mean I believe this agenda is going to succeed, but the road ahead of us in not neatly paved. This onslaught against us has become a war that those who are aware of have now chosen to engage in. This is not done by traditional warring methods but by making choices that starve the propaganda machine to death, and instead feed the spirit with truth, beauty and vitality. There are healing solutions to so many problems that we face but they have purposefully been buried and denied. This is a time to reclaim those solutions for ourselves and our loved ones.

Mars in Aries forms a square to Pluto on August 13th and due to its Retrograde motion in September makes two more squares in 2020, the second on October 9th and the third on December 20th. A square between Mars and Pluto is one of the most telltale signs of war and conflict, especially involving cardinal signs. This Mars-Pluto square coincides with the build-up toward the great U.S. election of 2020 on November 3rd which is marked by a stellium of politically-focused Pallas Athene, Jupiter, Pluto, and Saturn in Capricorn. These are trying times that we are living in, in some ways similar to and even worse than the Great Depression. It is also tension that can strengthen our wills and chisel our character. It just so happens to be human nature to need something really big to occur before serious improvements are made.

One of the most potent ways to be able to communicate during times of psychic warfare is through art, which is much trickier to censor than speech alone. This is a year to stay vigilant, prepared and empowered instead of merely hoping that safety will be gained by following orders.

Anything is possible now and one of the most important things to remember is that each one of us does have the power to effect change, even if in a small way that contributes to the whole. The Butterfly effect is a perfect example of this.

What I celebrate now is the grass being green, the birds still singing, and seeing people collectively beginning to realize what is happening behind the scenes. Pluto is just showing us what must be purged so that we can enjoy life the way we are meant to be able to.

North Node in Gemini: the Power of Free Speech

The North Node of the Moon’s entrance into Gemini is one of several major highlights of the year 2020. The True Nodes shift from the Cancer North Node and Capricorn South Node to Gemini North Node and Sagittarius South Node begins on May 5th and will last until January 18th of 2022. The Mean Node positions last from June 4th until December 22nd 2021.

During this transit the intense focus on security matters and global economy relative to the Cancer/Capricorn axis will become overlapped before being replaced by a universal increase of information, ideas and communications. As a mutable air sign Gemini heightens mental awareness and brings many new experiences. It stimulates conversation, activism, and collaboration among friends, families and communities. Together with Jupiter and Saturn’s transit through airy Aquarius in 2021-2022, the North Node in this sign highlights a worldwide theme that greatly enhances cerebral activity, lots of movement and exchanges with others. Gemini’s dual nature can lead to excess juggling of ideas and choices, reading several articles or trying to hold more than one conversation at once.

The last North Node transit through Gemini was from late 2001-2003 when the world was recovering from the 9/11 attacks. Just as the world had been turned upside down by those events and the major media outlets that kept people traumatized and fearful of travel, we face a similar situation today due to very different reasons. What was done to “protect” people changed life in significant ways. The growing concern then with possible lock-downs, constant surveillance and loss of civil liberties eerily match the issues that concern us now due to Covid-19. Just as with 9/11, those who are questioning the mainstream narrative surrounding the cause of events are being heavily censored while propaganda is being pushed with a vengeance. On the dark side of the North Node in Gemini, talking and “spreading the news” is favored over privacy and accuracy, so unfortunately the current set-up reflects very similar dynamics to the 9-11 aftermath, but in many ways much more severe. No doubt, just as there was then, there will be a push-back against corporate lies and manipulation. This is one of many factors that indicates there is hope for humanity to rise up and take their power back.

Freedom of speech is still allowed in the United States of America but with the intensity of planetary line-ups leading up to the Pluto Return in 2022, we are in danger of losing that right, especially on the internet. The Gemini North Node is the forerunner at the gateway of the new life that awaits.

Gemini’s ruling planet Mercury will be entering Gemini on May 11th forming a restless conjunction to the North Node by the end of the month, between May 27th and 29th. By this time it will probably be much harder for people to contain themselves and stay put if lock-downs are still in effect. The world of socializing and commerce may suddenly pick up the pace. Gemini wants to connect with others, explore the neighborhood, and spend time with friends and family.

Gemini’s polar opposite Sagittarius will be occupied by the South Node and highlighting the need to stay focused, bringing the painful reminders as well as wisdom of past experience to the riddles and problems of the present. Sagittarius’s ruling planet Jupiter has been making a powerful conjunction to Pluto in 2020 and by mid-December it will join with Saturn. The truth which Jupiter represents is what could begin to set us free from eons of global tyranny and deception.

One thing to be particularly aware of during this potentially draining transit is an abundance of nervous energy and anxiety that peaks in the collective, leading to more nervous breakdowns, suicides or psychotic behavior in those who are already unstable. For many years, every mainstream outlet around the world has inundated people with misleading info, nerve-wracking statistics and downright depressing news, day after tiresome day. The visual and verbal onslaught of repetitive garbage info and outrageous lies may reach a tipping point with the North Node in Gemini.

On the positive side, more people are beginning to notice the inconsistencies of propped up puppet speakers, trash magazine writers, perverse leaders, New Age gurus, internet cults and all varieties of Controlled Opposition. They are beginning to “talk back” and “drop out” in ways that deflate the puffed up egos of their bombastic, false gods. Less shekels for these criminals! They have contributed enough to the problems of the world with their long-winded diatribes and obsessed rants about things that do nothing to uplift or improve the lives of others.

The North Node in Gemini is the kind of influence that would reveal who our real allies are so we can better honor them, as well as what our distractions are, so that we are better able to remove them.

Planetary Aspects and Eclipses

Venus at 21 degrees of Gemini will be turning Retrograde on May 13th until June 25th and expanding on Gemini’s themes of duality and dabbling with this and that. Later during the first week of August, Venus in direct motion will be meeting up with the North Node. This could be a very defining time for relationships to family, kinsfolk, and those who we spend a great deal of time sharing thoughts and feelings with. This contact emphasizes what either makes or breaks the bonds.

The Nodes square Neptune from around October of 2020 until February 2021. During this period of time what we say and how words are understood, missed or entirely misconstrued could have dire consequences. If enough of us are doing our part in working together to reclaim our freedom we may witness huge miracles.

Being able to interpret others literally, symbolically and through their body language and to “read between the lines” may become necessary in many situations. The ability to communicate clearly and effectively will also be of utmost importance. Conveying the truth in a world that is still mesmerized by glamour, trivia and fear porn will become the mission of teachers, messengers, and healers in every nation. Discerning those who are genuine from those who are in the game for fame and fortune is something that may be difficult for those who are newcomers to knowledge that has been previously hidden from the public.

What will life, post-Coronavirus look like? It’s hard to say, as much depends on how seriously the majority of folks are taking it. One meaning of the word Corona is “crown” and another is the sun’s auric plasma visibly emanating from the edges of a solar eclipse. With this pandemic we’ve seen corrupt “royalty” and politicians exposing their own agendas as the most horrific diseases on planet Earth.

There are four upcoming eclipses that involve the North Node in Gemini and South Node in Sagittarius. These are:

  • The penumbral Lunar Eclipse which will loosely conjunct the North North on November 30th 2020 – is is the both the signal of major endings and the stirring of things to come.
  • Total solar eclipse conjunct South Node in Sagittarius on December 14th 2020 – this one will have a much greater impact that is carried into the next year.
  • Total lunar eclipse conjunct South Node in Sagittarius in May 26th 2021 – this one brings a lot of things to a head that were initiated during the Solar Eclipse on December 14th.
  • Annular solar eclipse conjunct North Node in Gemini June 10th 2021 – this is a very powerful eclipse with a loose conjunction to the South Node in Sagittarius.

The North Node trines Jupiter in February-March of 2021 and Saturn in April through August of 2021. This may bring many clarifying opportunities and social advancements. We can make incredible breakthroughs at this time that help to bridge the gaps between theories and practice, science and spirit, community and personal efforts to push through obstacles and learn interesting new things.

Vesta joins the North Node in Gemini late May into the first three days of June. The power of speech may be greatly enhanced. This is the time for sacred rituals involving the written and spoken word, as well as for poetry, mantras, and singing with intention.

Whether the NN in Gemini comes as a breath of fresh air or a whirlwind of chaos will largely depend on how well we are able to cooperate with each other despite our many differences. Most of us want the same basic things in life which are to be happy, healthy and free. This must be remembered as the mental pace of life speeds up and technology continues to evolve.

The Throes of America’s First Pluto Return

This is it. This is the American Pluto Return that has been looming over us for the past couple of decades. We are currently in it as history in the making. The very first Pluto Return of the USA will determine whether this country will remain a cohesive, functioning unit or suffer from a complete breakdown of its economic structures. Maybe what occurs will be somewhat of a mix of these two things in that unstable and corrupt foundations have to be cleared out before reliable ones are established.

The first Return will occur on February 20th of 2022, yet already effects are growing in intensity as Pluto draws closer to the exact natal position of the US chart of July 4, 1776. This is one of the most powerful planets when it comes to worldly events and it is the harbinger of visibly transformative effects to be witnessed throughout 2020. At the same this Return happens Saturn will be transiting the US’s Moon in Aquarius. The USA’s Moon is placed in the mid to late degrees of this sign, indicating a revolution and cyber warfare involving the sciences, technology and collective efforts for the next three years. Even sooner, in February of 2021 Saturn will transit the US’s South Node in Aquarius, which may bring painful consequences of past actions or a need to pay and clear old debts.

2020 was kicked off by a powerful Saturn-Pluto conjunction following the Lunar Eclipse in Cancer in early January. Both served as triggers of the USA’s natal position of Mercury, the planet that rules communication, social media, intelligence, and travel. Mercury, being opposite of Pluto in the US chart is an indication of propaganda and psyops through the media. Saturn and Pluto also made a trine to the US’s Neptune in Virgo and the Lunar Eclipse conjunct US Mercury made a sextile to it. Although trines and sextiles are typically believed to indicate ease and harmony, they sometimes indicate the ease at which something negative slips its way through unbidden territory, catching us off-guard. Neptune is the planet associated with illusions, deceit, and all invisible things including contagious disease. Virgo is the sign associated with health and hygiene, which are currently subjects of intense focus and obsession. During the time of these transits the Covid-19 outbreak had not yet caught the attention of the masses, but by late February a pandemic was considered to be in full effect. It has almost globally affected people’s rights to travel or even to leave the house due to fears and uncertainty as to the severity of what is considered to be a deadly virus. No doubt this has already begun to take its toll on the economy, and this could be just the beginning of a cycle that will change the way people have been used to living for several decades.

The two great benefics Venus and Jupiter in the USA chart were transited by the Solar Eclipse of the December Solstice in 2019. Venus rules money and Jupiter rules distant travel, foreign affairs, and the political arena. This was around the time that the Covid-19 outbreak occurred in China but it was not yet a reason for alarm in the US. Many knew that something big was going to happen but had no idea what it would be. The results of the 2020 Elections due on November 3rd are likely to come as a huge surprise with Saturn and Jupiter moving into a conjunction with the US’s natal Pluto.

There will be a Solar Eclipse on June 21st of 2020 that makes a conjunction to the US’s natal Venus, the planet ruling banks, finances, the stock market, social affairs, women’s health and luxuries among other things. This is a particularly potent eclipse because it falls at an Aries degree point, in this case 0 degrees of Cancer. It indicates a critical turning point for not only the US economy but very possibly worldwide affairs, at least in other nations with natal planets being triggered. This point will be activated several times during the Pluto Return of the USA. Mars will transit the eclipse point in April of 2021, again in January of 2022 and March 2023. Venus passes over it in early November of 2021 in a pre-Retrograde phase. The themes relevant to these phases may linger in effect even after Pluto has entered Aquarius in 2024, by which time the world’s economy may be barely recognizable from what it it has been and is today.

Pluto represents power, death, purging and massive upheavals in government and in the sign of Capricorn where it has been transiting since 2008 all of these things combined are extra highlighted. The stories that most of us have been told about our ancestry and about the colonization of America have been misconstrued, missing in many crucial details. The truth of who was involved, as well as what, when, why and how has been and will be coming to the fore and sadly, not everyone will believe or want to hear it. In this post I am unfortunately not at liberty to say who and what these things alluded to are.

Centuries of lies and deceit are finally being revealed to us and to turn our heads the other way in favor of so-called “safety” provided by those who have held us in captivity would be a collective suicide. It’s time to remember who we are and what we are capable of, no matter where we are from.

Saturn in Aquarius pt II – Evil Science, Cyber Space, and the Power of the Collective

This is part II of my overview of Saturn’s transit through Aquarius from March 2020 – March 2023. You can view or listen to the first part by clicking here here.

Saturn enters Aquarius on March 21st coinciding with the Equinox – the first out of four cardinal turning points of the year. This transit will have far-reaching impact on the general population as Jupiter draws closer into a conjunction with it, the timing of which coincides with the Solstice on December 21st. A conjunction between these two planets occurs about every 20 years and is the mark of huge changes in the economy, politics and society as a whole.

In addition to an increase of scientific discoveries and advancements there will inevitably also be many challenges related to these in the months, and especially in the decade to come. Pluto’s entry into Aquarius begins when Saturn’s ends and this means that Saturn’s influence will continue as a pervasive force, heightened by Aquarius’s second planetary ruler Uranus. For many years already the upgrades in technology have thrown us into a state of information overload. Computers and smart phones are changing faster than most of us can keep up with. There is a digital war upon us and digitized weaponry is a danger that more people will need to become aware of if they stand any chance of overcoming or escaping it.

  • Saturn goes Retrograde on May 11th
  • It re-enters Capricorn on July 1st
  • Goes Direct on September 29th
  • Re-enters Aquarius on December 17th
  • In 2021, Saturn turns Retrograde on May 23
  • Turns Direct on October 11th
  • In 2022, Saturn turns Retrograde June 4
  • Turns Direct on October 23
  • In 2023 Saturn exits Aquarius on March 7

Here are some things to keep in mind during Saturn’s transit through Aquarius. First the negative, then the positive.

Negatively:

Saturn is the planet of restriction, tests, delays and limitations. Aquarius is the sign of revolutionary movements and also rules technology and the Internet. Due to the current economic crisis there may be less work available if businesses are shut down for longer periods than expected. More people will be encouraged to work and take schooling from home, via the Internet. This has its pros and cons, but it means that there will be less major commerce for awhile. Hoarding will not solve the problem. People will need to become smarter, more resourceful overall.

With greater amounts of time spent on the Internet there are a greater number of concerns with computer viruses, digital attacks, censorship, and other tech issues.

For any great number of reasons, there may be an increase in power outages. This may become more of an issue during Saturn’s Retrograde periods. Folks may wish to stock up on a couple of good light-bulbs, a few candles, lighters and matches just in case. Please don’t go crazy with this like the millions of hoarders and businesses who’ve been stocking 6 months to 2 years worth of toilet paper in their garages.

Real ID is set to become an air-travel requirement by October 2020. In addition to this, there is a lesser known form of identification being pushed for by Microsoft and Big Pharma, called ID2020. This is a microchip that would be implanted via mandatory vaccination (when enough people are scared shitless of Covid-19 or some other virus) and would keep records of all of a person’s digital history, finances, whereabouts and God knows what else. These implants would allow for people to become more easily controlled from a distance. This is the mark of the Beast mentioned in the Biblical book of Revelations and if this comes to pass, it would truly be the end of the world as we know it.

Aquarius rules groups and many group activities will be heightened. The downside of a failing economy is that in big cities and other highly urbanized areas there may an increase in riots and looting. This is more likely to take place in high crime neighborhoods but it can’t hurt to be prepared in any location. At the same time there has been a crackdown on gun owning rights so there are less ways for people to defend themselves.

5G is a technology that has been thrust upon us without adequate research into the effects that it has on human and animal health. Even if people avoid 5G in their own home it may be a prominent force right outside their front door as it has become widespread in many areas and has become harder to escape. It would be well worth researching 5G in greater detail, and starting up local groups to raise awareness of the very real dangers associated with it. 

An increase of surveillance has already been underway for several decades and may intensify before it ceases to pose a threat on human civilization. There may be less actual humans at check-out stands and an increase of self-service isles with surveillance cameras. This is already happening on a grand scale at chains like Walmart and Target.

Currency is continuing to change in drastic ways. Bitcoin and other forms of currency may grow in popularity. This is not necessarily bad but it does not take away the need for actual cash, nor does it grant financial security.

Positively:

Saturn rules structure, stability and strength that grows over time. Aquarius is linked with groups, innovation, great discoveries, raising awareness, and collective efforts. There are many obvious negatives to “Group Think” because as we have seen a majority of the world’s population is operating out of fear and ignorance. Those in high places labeled as humanitarians are the complete opposite of loving individuals who want to help humanity. However, when committed individuals and communities join together for beneficial causes, great and wonderful things can happen. Just what makes something “beneficial” rather than malignant is always up for debate. In order to judge what would be beneficial it should be measured and weighed (Saturnian functions) and put to the test without putting lives at risk.

Scientific research may begin to “prove” things that our wiser ancestors knew thousands of years ago about such things as the placements of the stars, the healing properties of herbs and the reality of the aura and astral plane of existence. Therefore it may begin to also uncover the harmful effects of directed energy weapons like 5G and cause people make different choices about the causes they fight for and support. I’m probably wishful thinking about how soon this will take place but eventually…maybe many years down the road this will happen.

More people will turn to vibrational healing medicine as they realize that they are made up of energy and not just flesh and bones.

The exploration of space will seem to be put on hold and then all of a sudden may begin moving again at warp speed. The timing of this may also come later, during Pluto’s transit through Aquarius. Overall, due to the Great Conjunction with Jupiter and other factors, a challenging transition is indicated by Saturn’s transit through Aquarius, but one that will significantly increase our understanding of the universe that we live in.

March Equinox Reading 2020

 

March is one huge deal of a month and truly the mark of some significant endings and beginnings taking place. The Equinox falls on the 19th as the Sun enters Aries and comes into a conjunction with Chiron, squaring the Nodes. This comet so named after the Greek centaur is a both a symbol of suffering and strength, where healing abilities coexist with a wound that must be endured, and perhaps, eventually dissolved.

Chiron in Aries indicates that a kind of collective wounding and identity crisis is taking place and that as awareness of the issues at hand and what is behind them begins to grow, so does a collective sense of anger and uprising. And maybe that’s what needs to happen, in order to set some very twisted things straight on this planet. A conflict lies between self-preservation and greed, and this not only entails the masses but the power elite who dominate them. Dangerously selfish tendencies that many people have are beginning to surface and hopefully this is something that draws to these peoples attention how they are unwittingly contributing to some of the problems that they find themselves plagued with.

There is also the uncomfortable reality of things getting so messy that more people will indeed be compelled to get up and fight for something instead of grasp for security and enough toilet paper to last for twelve years. The fight is not just for petty things as personal privileges and faster internet service. This is about people’s families and homelands being on the brink of total destruction. The reasons behind this destruction are many, and the mainstream media refuses to reveal what they are. Instead we are inundated with ads and campaigns for the very things leading us to our demise.

Mars, the ruling planet of Aries is very much involved in this year’s series of eye-opening transits including those of Saturn. This is the planet of aggression, assertiveness and self defense. It will spend half a year in its own sign Aries due to a Retrograde cycle in this sign that lasts from September 9th until November 13th. In this chart for the Equinox, Pallas Athene followed by Mars is conjunct Jupiter in Capricorn, and will conjunct Pluto on the 22nd. Mars and Jupiter both power up new activities, business endeavors, career shifts and other changes that have been sought after for a long time. Jupiter draws closer into a conjunction with Pluto, exact on April 4th in the first of three such conjunctions to take place in 2020. The second falls on June 30th and the third on November 12th of this year.

Saturn at the 29 degree of Capricorn reaches the heights of its weighty presence in this sign until it leaves for Aquarius on the 21st. This is the first of two entries that Saturn will make into Aquarius this year. It indicates not only the shift in Saturn’s focus for the next two and a half years but is also the launching pad of a new Aquarian era and cycle of growth. Saturn in the sign of the Water Bearer highlights group activities and scientific advancements, as well as what may seem as rather extreme lessons in these areas. Saturn’s presence in Aquarius may also mean isolation in many instances.

Endings experienced now are largely around physical, tangible things, including things, people, problems, jobs, and areas that have been worked with and through for a significant length of time. Throughout 2020, there is so much to release as Capricorn’s earthly prominence slowly begins to wane, and especially while Jupiter re-joins Pluto Retrograde in late June. That of Aquarius is picking up the pace with new beginnings centered on ideas, communications, networking, friendships and actualizing long-held visions and wishes.

Mars exits Capricorn and enters Aquarius on March 30th moving immediately into a conjunction with Saturn, issuing its effects throughout the first week of April. This upcoming season is the one to plant seeds that will bear fruit not only once but again and again through the years. It is an optimal time to pursue goals with all the passion that can be mustered up. Although the work is not by any means easy, the duos of Mars and Saturn and Jupiter and Pluto reinforce the efforts being put forth and thereby increase their chances of success.

A Full Moon in Virgo in collaboration with Pallas Athene

The Full Moon falls at 19 degrees of Virgo on March 9th coinciding with Mercury stationing Direct in Aquarius. This “Worm Moon” which signals the start of spring and earthworms rising to the surface of the soil may also be bringing many other previously hidden things and abilities within view and reach. Since the Moon will be opposite of Neptune it may be still be difficult to discern the appropriate course of action regarding things observed. The details may be overwhelming and little patience goes a long way in this situation.

The second decan of Virgo highlighted brings a mounting up of Saturnian themes, and a trine aspect by the Full Moon in this sign powers up the conjunctions between Mars, Pallas Athene, Jupiter and Pluto in Saturn-ruled Capricorn this month. In addition, Saturn is amplified in the late degrees of his own sign and gearing up for the ingress into Aquarius on March 21st. That the aspects formed are harmonious should be encouraging in a time where there is so much discouragement in the air. It means that hope should not be abandoned and redoubling the efforts toward improvements will only help the chances of success.

Pallas Athene in Capricorn positively ignited by the Virgo Moon assists all practical healing applications, particularly those relating to structural integrity. The warrior goddess of wisdom, healing and fine arts is a motivational force in times of fear and uncertainty. This is an influence that can aid us in becoming more organized in various aspects of life. Whatever the focus is and wherever problems beg for solutions there is obviously much work to be done but the way for greater productivity and effectiveness is finally being paved. Someone out there and I’m not sure who first came up with it said “Don’t give up before your miracle occurs”. That statement is ever so appropriate to remember now.

The current worldwide theme around health and hygiene has been heightened because without them we are not only vulnerable to various forms of disease but unable to fully enjoy anything that we have worked so hard to accomplish. Due to mainstream media there is so much ridiculous nonsense being circulated. It’s just so easy for people to get scattered and lose sight of what’s important.

Leading up to the Full Moon, Venus in Taurus forms a conjunction to Uranus and sextile to the North Node in Cancer. These aspects may seem to be challenging in the areas of attachments to things and people remaining the way that they are. Provided that there is a readiness to move on to the next phase of development this influence will not be too disruptive. Rather it may be the signal of exciting new opportunities opening up in ways, places and situations that would probably not have been imagined. In other words, there may not be a whole lot of “security” indicated in the stars right now but that could be quite liberating.

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.
