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.
