The U.S. and Mars in Capricorn

Mars is the planet identified with fire, iron, and armed forces just to mention few.
When Mars transits the sign of Capricorn, which happens with intervals of around two years, it creates certain aspects with planets in the US natal chart, and consequently, energy is created that could be manifested in confrontations, military interventions or government actions, which are ruled by Capricorn and Saturn.

Here the planetary aspects that US has when Mars in transiting the sign of Capricorn.
Mars in transit opposition US natal Sun (the Sun represents the country and how it is seen)
Mars in transit square US natal Saturn (Saturn rules government, structures, and responsibilities)

The opposition between Mars and the natal Sun represents tension within the country. The air is charged with nervous energy, alter egos, confrontations and discussions, and is when discussions get out of hand.

The square represent tension, not an easy energy to manage, that if is not managed carefully, it could cause damage to self or others. In case of Mars square Saturn, creates an additional energy to the previous one, which is not positive.

Lets name some events that happened in the recent past when similar aspects were present

U.S. imposes new sanctions on Russia

President Obama Orders More Troops to Syria to Fight ISIS

US strikes Syria’s military installations with missiles

In 2020, the same Mars aspects will be present, but in addition, we have Saturn and Pluto transiting Capricorn, and Mars is going to have conjunctions in transit with them as in 2018. These same aspects involving the three planets were not present before 2018.

The US will be under the following aspects

February 17 – Mars enters sign of Capricorn
February 23 – Saturn exact conjunction with Natal US Pluto (same aspect on January 1991 – Gulf War)
March 8 – Mars enters conjunction shadow with Pluto
March 15 – Mars enters conjunction shadow with Saturn
March 22 – Mars exact conjunction with Pluto
March 31 – Mars exact conjunction with Saturn
April 7 – Mars end conjunction shadow with Pluto
April 15 – Mars end conjunction shadow with Saturn

There are historical events coinciding with Mars and Saturn astrological aspects, but in addition, in 2020, we have other energies active that could trigger some significant event. Pluto rules dramatic and transforming changes and is associated with nuclear energy, and Saturn is in conjunction with Pluto as it happened before in 1991.

On January 10, 2020 there was a lunar eclipse with the Sun, Moon, Mercury, Saturn, Pluto and the asteroid Ceres in the mix. There was not a similar eclipse between the signs of Capricorn and Cancer, with these planets present in modern history. The transformation power of this eclipse does not have a precedent under current global structure. The energy of this eclipse will be present until at least July this year.

We will transit a critical period starting middle of February and during the month of March. We will have to see how events will unfold, but be prepare for a surprise. It could be related to CoVid2019 or not, but we do not have to disregard some significant military event during this period.

Whatever happens, it will have an impact on everyone with a transforming quality.


Coronavirus 2020 – Spanish Flu 1918 (2nd part)

In the previous article, we mentioned the similarity of the moon eclipse that occurred on June 24, 1918 with the one on January 10, 2020, in relation to the 1918’s pandemic and the possibility that something similar happening in the coming months.
For those who are not familiar with astrology, or who simply know astrology for the zodiacal signs or the natal chart, we have to mention the relationship between the human body with the astrological signs and planets. There is a relationship or interchange of energy between certain aspects or celestial events and the human body, in this case the eclipses, which we will explain in this article.

The knowledge of the relationship between the human body and the zodiacal sings and planets comes from millennia’s ago, and even if some people may consider this knowledge quackery, not many people know that Dr. H.L. Cornell edited in 1933 the, “Encyclopaedia of Medical Astrology”, which details the relationship of each medical term with astrology. Moreover, Hippocrates known as the “father of medicine” said that, “the doctor who did not know about astrology, was not a complete doctor”.
We have to take into consideration that doctors in Asia and the Middle East were much more advanced in knowledge and techniques on the human body than ancient Europe, since the Catholic Church forbade the opening of the human body to study it, while for Asian and Middle Eastern countries this was a usual practice.
From the study of the interior of the human body and its organs, the relationship between the different parts and functions were identified with zodiac signs and planets.

For astrology, the head is identified with the sign of Aries and the zodiacal signs go downward on the human body until reaching the feet with the sign of Pisces. For illustrative purposes only, before using the Gregorian calendar, the solar year began with the spring solstice in the northern hemisphere, which is identified with the sign of Aries coincidentally.

In relation to the 1918 pandemic, as mentioned in the previous article, the lunar eclipse of June 24, 1918 happened between the signs of Capricorn, where the Moon was located, and the sign of Cancer where the Sun and Pluto were. Mercury a few degrees apart in the sign of Gemini, also entered into the aspect.

The sign of Cancer has to do with the lungs, bust, chest, breasts, ribs, cartilage, diaphragm, stomach, liver, epigastric region and the entire mucosa in the body. It is identified with the mother and mother earth, which is governed by the Moon.
The sign of Capricorn has to do with the skeleton, bones (specifically knees), teeth, molars, cartilage, skin, nails, hair, gallbladder and the upper part of the face. In another aspect, it has to do with structures, organizations and governments.

Pluto is the lord of the underworld; it is death and resurrection, not in the physical form but in the great processes of transformation from one thing to another. It is the death of one stage for the beginning of another one. In the case of a pandemic, the mass death of people can be the method for reevaluating and changing certain social aspects.
The Sun is the exteriorization and materialization of things, while the Moon manages the internal processes, the subconscious and the liquids and fluids.

The interpretation we can make of the eclipse of June 1918, is that the energies between Cancer and Capricorn were activated which, by having Pluto in the mix, generated the conditions for a general sickness, in this case a lung disease, manifested by a virulent flu. Individual and/or social hygiene processes or lack thereof probably did the rest. By Mercury being also present in the eclipse, affected trade and travel in general.

There is no doubt that a pandemic of such magnitude makes rethink many aspects in governments and in society as a whole. Let us keep in mind that at the time of the pandemic in 1918, there were no commercial flights, so the transfer of people between continents was done by ship, but this seems not to prevent the virus from spreading throughout the world.

The issue that concerns us today about the coronavirus has astrological similarities with 1918.

The eclipse of the Moon that occurred on January 10 also includes the signs of Capricorn and Cancer, this time the Moon in the sign of Cancer and on the side of Capricorn nothing less than the Sun, Mercury, Ceres, Saturn and Pluto.

If we compare the two eclipses, the one that occurred on January 10 is much more powerful than the one in 1918. Not only was Saturn added to the equation, but also the asteroid Ceres. For more details on the eclipse and Ceres you can consult the previous articles.

Neptune has to do with water and situations that are not easy to understand or are unclear, such as what kind of mutation the virus is or where it came from. Neptune transiting the sign of Pisces provides an additional uncertainty ingredient that does not help at all in the definition and forecast of the current situation. Are the official numbers correct? Are there more deaths associated to what is informed? There is doubt in the air.

Although today we have better tools to face a pandemic, the magnitude of global commerce and tourism make it more difficult to control the movement of people. You can lackdown cities within a limit. With 14 days incubation period, those who have the virus in a state of incubation may not show any symptoms, possibly spreading it without knowing it.

In the next two months, we will have the answer if the situation improves or worsens. In 1918, the worldwide pandemic peak during the months of October and November, three months after the eclipse. What happens during this March/April period will have the answer this time around.

Spanish Flu from 1918
According to the information available in Wikipedia, the Spanish Flu was an unusual influenza pandemic. It stared beginning on 1918 with a pick during October 1918, and gradually declined until it was gone by end of 1920. The estimates put in millions the deaths around the world, with a reduction of the world population between 3% and 6% depending on the source. A third of the world population was infected and between 10% and 20% of those infected died. In the Unites States over ½ a million people die.

Coronavirus in 2020
The outbreak began in Wuhan, China, at a market selling live poultry, seafood and wild animals. Now the virus has turned up in 11 other countries, including Japan, South Korea, France, Australia, and the United States. Millions of people are in quarantine and several Chinese cities are in lock down.

This is an analysis from the astrological point of view regarding the lunar eclipse that occurred on June 24 th 1918 and the recent eclipse that happened on January 10th.
Both lunar eclipses occurred with Sun in conjunction with Pluto and Mercury, but the eclipse that just occurred on January 10th, also includes Saturn and the asteroid Ceres.

From the astrological point of view, Pluto represents the lord on the underworld and the Phoenix Bird, which dies and is reborn from its hashes. Mercury governs communication, commerce and travel. During a pandemic, these elements take great importance since it will affect commerce and travel. People are going to be restrained from traveling which will have an impact on commerce and all the associated consequences.
On the eclipse of January 10th, Saturn adds an element which makes the situation worse compared to 1918. Since Pluto and Saturn are in the sign of Capricorn, this is signaling that current structures (mainly government and global organizations) will be greatly impacted by, and most probably, they are going to be overrun by the situation.

Today we have global conditions much different from those in 1918. There was no air commercial travel in those days. Travel was by land or water only, so movement of people and commerce was much slow and easier to control. Today just thinking that air travel can be limited or restricted, will have a global impact of unimaginable consequences. Let just consider tourism that is an important income source for many countries.

Ceres, who is also into the equation in 2020 lunar eclipse, relates to food and mainly agricultural product. The commerce in this respect can also be impacted not only affecting farmers, but also countries that rely on foreign products.

The pick of the pandemic in 1918 was in the month of October, 4 months after the eclipse. Usually the energy of the eclipse can last up to six months. With the current situation, we will get a better idea of the dimension of the current outbreak between February and March.

In the meantime, is not a bad idea to be prepared and get ready in case that the situation gets out of hand.
