We posted an astrological analysis in January 2020 mentioning the similar aspects between the called Spanish Flu of 1918 and the Corona virus; when it was not yet declared pandemic by the OMS. There were similar aspects between the lunar eclipse of June 24th, 1918 and the one on January 10th, 2020. In addition, we mentioned that the eclipse of 2020 was stronger from the astrological point of view.
In this article, we are showing the trend followed by the Spanish flu and the planetary transits between 1918 and 1919 and the current transits for 2020 and beginning of 2021.
Besides the energies generated by the lunar eclipse of June 1918, there were not many hard aspects to point out. The opposition from Saturn to Uranus between the months of October and January were the worst part. Jupiter trine Pluto, and Jupiter conjunct Pluto, generated positives energies but they were short cycles.
Analyzing year 2020, we have a complete different picture.
The lunar eclipse triggered the event on January 10, but as shown on the chart below, there are many additional hard aspects during the year that complicates matters.
Jupiter is in conjunction with Pluto from April until October, similar to the aspect that we had in August 1918; but in 2020 the period is longer. This can be seen as a period when authorities are using all power available to fight the situation.
In addition, Jupiter sextile Neptune, talks about trying to find a cure or a vaccine for the virus. This period goes from February until October.
As shown in the graphic, by middle of August the actual trend of cases is going down, and we expect this trend to continue down, because of both Jupiter’s cycles been on the positive side.
However, once these both transits are gone, hard aspects enter into play. There is a solar eclipse in December that brings out Neptune’s dark side. Neptune hard aspect, talks about sickness hard to pinpoint, deception or under handle dealings. One week later of the eclipse, we have Jupiter and Saturn’s conjunction at 0 degree of Aquarius. By this planetary aspect, known as the great conjunction, the dark aspect of Aquarius is activated. We can define this aspect as “escape from reality”.
Jupiter squaring Uranus in January 2021 is a hard aspect that could have its positive side. For example discovering a cure for the virus, or a vaccine. But, since at that time will be already active February’s transit of Saturn square Uranus, and having the energies of December eclipse active; either truth comes out that everything is a lie, that there are many bad side effects to the remedies applied, that everything is a big scheme, or a new virus shows up.
From December 2020 and during 2021 Q1, we can expect things to get a little crazy.
From the astrological point of view, there is no comparison at the energy level between the Spanish Flu and the current pandemic. In 2020, we are under very hard planetary aspects, something that did not happen in 1918. In just few months, we will be able to see the results.

I am an American astrologer with 50 years experience. I have bookmarked your blog for further reading. A larger perspective may be seen if one looks at the Saturn Pluto conjunctions in Capricorn of 1518 and 2020. The recent computer internet publishing revolution and the earlier advent of movable type and the revolution in book printing. In South America in 1519 there was a pandemic that killed most of the population. No doubt this is why so few native dialects survive while elsewhere in the world numerous languages are still spoken. Martin Luther posted this 95 Thesis on the Wittenburg Church also in 1519 the brought about the protestent reformation. What is it’s corollary in 2020?; I am uncertain but would expect something similar. Perhaps it exists but I have just not seen it yet.
Dear Allen, thank you very much for your comments, they are much appreciated. I posted an article in August 2019 regarding January’s 10th lunar eclipse and Pluto and Saturn conjunction. I believe that the pandemic is part of bigger scheme that started a global structure crisis. I think that governments and corporations will change to a new form gradually, until something new will materialize. Society could be impacted similar to what was the discovery of the “new world” in the 1500’s. The great conjunction of Jupiter and Saturn at 0 degree of Aquarius on the solstice of December 2020 is another important aspect adding to everything that is going on.
