History repeats itself but never exactly as the previous time.
Everything is movement and things change, so even if there could be similar energies active at any given time compared to the past, events will be similar on the outcome but different in the way they happen. Lets mention that this will happen only when there was no evolution, so no lesson was learned the previous time.
The fall of Saigon was a surprising event where things went from under control to let’s get the hell out of here. This week something similar happened with Afghanistan. The US started the withdraw of troops from Afghanistan and already the Taliban occupied several provinces.
From the astrological point of view, we present an analysis of the energies active that can represent the situation that happened in Vietnam and what is happening in Afghanistan.
Each planet has a representation in the mundane astrology.
Mars represents the Armed Forces, war, and conflicts.
Saturn represents the government structure and organization, the Supreme Court, and the Laws.
Neptune represents high ideals, or deception and at the government level the intelligence community, and general health problems
Pluto represents profound changes, and also refers to corruption, massive destructions (natural and man-made)
The Solar Eclipses activate outcomes and events in contrast to Lunar Eclipses which influence internal processes. Depending of the aspects within the eclipse as well as with the natal chart evaluated, so are the energies active that will be manifested.
Also, by understanding what each planet represents, the conjunctions, oppositions and squares between them, will point out the challenging aspects.
In both Solar Eclipses there are challenging aspects that include the Sun, Moon, Mars, Saturn, and Pluto. Also, the planetary transits for 2021 are adding fuel to the fire.
The US in under a Neptune-Neptune opposition, between house III (communication and neighboring countries) and House IX (high ideals and foreign lands). The opposition can only bring confusing energies between these two aspects in the country in general (government and population). On top of that, Neptune in transit makes square with natal Mars. These must be a very confusing times within the Armed Forces in regard to philosophies, leadership and objectives looking to the future. There must be a lot of soul searching and purpose of beign within their leaders.
After the Vietnam War, a lot of changes were made in the Armed Forces, and most probably in 2021 on, they will go through another transformation process.
