LONG-TERM (Solar Ingress) PATTERNS
For the United States, the 12 months beginning January 15, 2020 are dominated by Uranus on Eastpoint and a triple Sun-Saturn-Pluto conjunction (with some Mercury) at Midheaven. It will be a difficult year with more challenges than blessings. Perhaps our best way to use of 2020 is to prepare for the even more severe patterns coming in 2021.

URANUS gives the main flavor of the year, which will be full of surprises: sudden rupture or eruption, shock, revelation, and overflowing of boundaries and limitations. Destructive possibilities include explosions, structural collapses, earthquakes, and floods. Uranus events caused by human actions include surprise attacks, changes in foreign relations, changes in leadership, riots, revolts, and other populist uprisings.

However, the year's main story likely will be told by the more widely foreground cluster of Sun, Saturn, and Pluto. Every four years, the U.S. enacts a ritual deposing our head of state, i.e., a presidential election. For over half a century, in every election year except 1984, Pluto has been on Midheaven of the Capsolar, a perfect symbol. This year, with Pluto conjunct Saturn as the closest aspect (0°15'), within about 2° of a culminating Sun, the momentum to overthrow the seated monarch is more than ceremonial: It is the focus of the national soul. By one means or another, it seems astrologically inconceivable that Donald Trump's presidency will survive the year.

This will be a horrible struggle, probably with great damage along the way. SATURN CONJUNCT PLUTO signifies hardship including catastrophic disasters often laying waste to a landscape, feelings of irrevocable loss or separation, a seemingly apocalyptic moment. The U.S. last had an angular Saturn-Pluto this powerful in 2001, for the 9/11 attacks. Historically, the aspect has marked the downfall of cities and nations (though that would be an extreme expression).

In the U.S., the Sun-Saturn-Pluto triplet is exactly angular in southern Florida, New Orleans, and coastal Mississippi. I fear there is no way these areas will make it through 2020 without a devastating (likely Category 5) hurricane after the fashion of Hurricane Andrew, just as the Mars line through the Santa Barbara region makes it seem certain this year's fires will be more severe than the already-terrible ones of the recent past. You can see the impact of these lines outside of Washington, DC here.

SUN-SATURN marks primarily sad events. (Even happy events occur under arduous conditions.) Examples include the death or other restraint of national leaders; government gridlock; restrictive, controlling, or failing government that causes or worsens disaster; fiscal crisis; structural collapses, hurricanes, floods, earthquakes, and other events mandating government oversight and response. SUN-PLUTO events can be highly diverse, from natural disasters to political confrontation: Routine motifs include removing or assaulting those in power, rebelling against prevailing conventions, and disrespect for and disobeying the law.

Uranus squares Sun, Saturn, and Pluto mundanely. SATURN-URANUS signals bubble-bursting confrontation by a harsh reality with wide, tense swings between polar opposites like freedom-restriction, liberality-conservatism, or the forces of change and status quo. URANUS-PLUTO is destabilizing, revolutionary, revising, remapping, anti-establishment, and anti-government with a spirit of revolution that dismantles current systems and tears down existing structures. People are willing to ignore, challenge, or reject precedent, custom, convention, and authority. SUN-URANUS signals sudden, startling events that are psychologically (and sometimes physically) explosive such as surprise attacks, sudden changes in leadership, and life-altering technology breakthroughs.

We are already in a new American civil war, at least with respect to culture. This chart portrays a nation hurled more deeply into division in 2020, closer to the spirit of a new American revolution. As Pluto transitions from Sagittarius to Capricorn, every solar or lunar cardinal ingress of the next three years worldwide will have Sun or Moon closely conjunct, opposite, or square Pluto.

Sun conjoins Mercury, their midpoint on MC. Beyond the usual (seemingly trivial) Mercury themes one would hope that the flow of international commerce resumes at its old pace. We can anticipate a year of technology altering everyday life at even a faster rate than currently anticipated. Mercury is squares Uranus (0°10' in RA), so these developments are within its purview: We have a year of discovery and amazement ahead, even as we endure a persistent sense of emergency and alarm.


MEDIUM-TERM PATTERNS (The Bridge)
  • Saturn conjunct Capsolar Midheaven continues through March 11 (exact on February 20). This important aspect must not be underestimated. Great tragedies have occurred under Saturn's transit to Capsolar MC of a place, which anticipates a great tragedy for the United States or, perhaps, for its head of state. Loss of life, property, and hope is in the air.
  • Uranus conjunct Capsolar Eastpoint expires February 21 and likely has run its course of bombshells, surprises, and overflowing natural bounds and limits.
  • Mars square CapQ Moon has been ongoing a while and expires February 21. Worldwide, it signifies a heightened state of emergency, pulses pounding harder, and frequent news stories focused on violence, destruction and death.
To summarize, the Bridge zones are:
  • Feb 20-21. Uranus Saturn Mars.
  • Feb 22-Mar 11. Saturn.
NOTE: Mars is in Sagittarius the entire month. Summaries of longer-term trends from outer planet transits can be seen here.


SHORT-TERM (Lunar Ingress) PATTERNS

Caplunar (Feb 20)
The Caplunar covers February 20 to March 18, especially the first two weeks, February 20 to March 5. It maps a very unfortunate month of grievous loss. Moon, Saturn, and Pluto are conjoined within a degree and a half, close to Ascendant. (Pluto is only 1°01' from Ascendant. Moon and Saturn are 0°04' from exact conjunction.) The picture is made gloomier because February 20, when this Caplunar occurs, is the exact day transiting Saturn conjoins Washington's Capsolar MC.

Moon conjunct Saturn marks hardship, sacrifice, death, loss, and sadness, with little to celebrate. This may appear as destructive assaults by human or nature, bereavement for widely beloved figures, deprivation and disappointment, or other hardship paired with alienation and divisiveness, property damage, and death. Moon conjunct Pluto shows events that stun our sensibilities and halt the mind with their intensity. such as uprisings and revolts, populist challenges to prevailing authority, departures of leaders, and other staggeringly intense events, pleasant and unpleasant, that hold unflinching attention. Angular Moon signals powerful feeling responses by the masses, surging upward from deep mass mind, concentrating collective (herd) focus on the events.

One type of event for which Saturn and Pluto both tend to aspect Moon and fall near angles is war. (I mention this only to provide a feeling of the type events, not to predict war per se.) With the Wuhan coronavirus currently expanding its reach, notice that Moon-Saturn-Pluto is consistent with a wide-impact pandemic.

Besides Moon-Saturn-Pluto lines passing through Florida and along the Atlantic seaboard all the way to Maine, Mars rises along a curve from Texas to Minnesota. (See the maps section for the exact paths of this and other lines.) Mars squares MC the exact longitude of Los Angeles (including all locations due north and south), perhaps signalling early fires or other Mars themes. Moon-Saturn-Pluto squares MC from Minnesota and the eastern Dakotas due south to Texas.

CanQ MC contacts the Cansolar Moon-Uranus square 2/21. CapQ WP crosses ingress Mars 2/22. The same Mars is squared by CapQ MC and CanQ MC squares CanQ Mars 2/25.

Arilunar (Feb 27)
The Arilunar covers February 27 to March 5. It is dormant. Moon aspects Pluto and Saturn as in the Caplunar (Moon-Pluto is 0°49' wide). Moon also conjoins Venus (1°56'). This Venus-Saturn-Pluto concentration reinforces the picture of loss of life worldwide, especially where they are angular, including the American (non-coastal) West (Utah is particularly vulnerable); West Africa; western Europe, especially France spilling over into Spain, England, and Germany; and southeast Asia, especially Burma, Thailand, and (of course) central China.

Two of the most important U.S. primaries occur this week. The South Carolina Democratic Primary is February 29. "Super Tuesday," the largest single-day concentration of primaries and caucuses, is March 3 and decisively identify the Democratic nominee. Most parts of the country will respond to the Caplunar more than the Arilunar for these voting days.

Jupiter (conjunct Pluto) exactly sets through Las Vegas. I suspect this means that Vegas bookmakers will benefit gigantically off the Super Tuesday primaries, which means they are not likely to go the way the advance odds from Vegas predict.

CanQ EP conjoins ingress Mars 3/1.

Canlunar (Mar 5)
The Canlunar covers March 5-11. Moon again aspects Saturn and Pluto (Saturn more widely, Pluto within a degree), this time joined by Mars closely angular. To what was said above regarding Moon-Saturn-Pluto, this adds cruelty, violence, conflict, fire, and other kinds of physical damage. In human terms, this shows callous disregard for others, coldness, severity, and the rigid edge of law outweighing humane consideration. In a word, it is brutal.

Mars on IC passes through New Jersey, not far from NYC, and then north to near Albany. It squares Ascendant through New England.

CapQ MC conjoins Neptunes 3/5 and 3/6. CapQ Dsc crosses ingress Jupiter 3/8.

Liblunar (Mar 11)
The Liblunar covers March 11-18. Though repeating themes of earlier ingresses, it seems to turn a corner by adding a strong Jupiter to the mix. Moon (EP 0°30'), Jupiter (sq Asc 1°00'), and Pluto (IC 1°07') are most angular, with Mars and Saturn widely so (but the Ma/Sa midpoint on IC). Moon, still aspecting Pluto (0°30'), has moved away from orb to Saturn for the world but, for Washington, retains a wide, weakened mundane square.

This week brings (or begins to bring) a healing of whatever illness has marked the three weeks prior. For example, if the tragic symbols have referred to the impact of the Wuhan virus, then this week brings a cure, a significant treatment, or a containment. If the illness has been cruel, brutal social forces, then these are corrected. If it has been political despair, then the people's collective mind rises to compensate for that. If there has been war, then now we have room to negotiate peace.

At worst, Jupiter-Pluto signals economic blows and outlandishly freaky weather events. Most of the time, though, this primarily benefic combination is more positive. It challenges existing value systems, ideologies, political ideas, and power systems, freeing up energy and possibility. Add Moon so strong - especially Moon closely connected to Jupiter - and we commonly get prosperity and pride, diplomacy and dignity, and the arising of the people to lay claim to what improves conditions for themselves and those closest to them. This may take socially liberal forms (being a great force for civil rights and the improvement of conditions for all) or socially conservative forms (nationalist, elitist, culturally exclusive) - or show the two still butting heads - but, in all cases, it focuses people's minds and hearts on the well-being of their families and communities.

Boston gets the direct impact of Saturn, while Pluto is most exactly angular through Virginia Beach and areas due north. See the maps section for more details, including an unusually nice intersection near Wilmington-Philadelphia.

PROGRESSIONS
Progressed Sun leaves its semi-square to natal Jupiter March 5. Progressed Sun's aspects to progressed Venus' conjunction with natal Jupiter have been Donald Trump's greatest astrological protections during his presidency. Venus-Jupiter has come and gone and Sun-Jupiter now ends. Before this month is over, his unusual luck expires.

Other long-running progressions continue: contentious p Mars sextile r Pluto and p Mars semi-square r Mars, celebrity-fueling p Sun-Venus semi-square, and p Mercury sextile r Jupiter and r Uranus, which suggests surprising luck and success in business and cutting deals.

He has additional protections to ease him through the expiration of Sun-Jupiter. Progressed Moon to natal Saturn continues until March 16, just before this month ends, then surrenders to p Moon to r Jupiter, already in play and peaking March 7, overlapping the new Moon-Venus aspect that begins March 14. Progressed Moon sextiles natal Mercury all month.

TRANSITS
Heavy (but vague) transits persist all month, including t Pluto to SQ Moon (and progressed natal Moon until Feb 29), t Pluto to r Saturn, and t Uranus to r Uranus. Diversely, these break up existing structures and show radically shifting conditions in one's life. They are the backdrop for two transits to Trump's Sidereal Solar Return angles that are much more concrete and important:

Transiting Uranus conjoins SSR Eastpoint all month. Then, beginning March 7, t Saturn conjoins SSR MC. This, frankly, is the combination Trump's foes wish he'd experienced during the impeachment trial. Against this backdrop of shaken foundations and extreme change, Saturn crossing Midheaven is typically a severe blow: added weight, burden, disapproval, and diminishment of one's standing in the world. As this is exact a day after the current astrological month ends, the entire month is likely a meandering setup for the climax. The full transit surely marks the worst period for him during his current birthday year, and one of his worst ever.

Along the way to that Saturn peak, Jupiter still squares natal Jupiter through February (exact 2/24), then picks up an aspect to natal Sun for a week and a half (2/24 to 3/5). Their overlap February 24-29, should prove advantageous to him with at least one key win (e.g., the South Carolina Democratic primary may go his preferred way).

SIDEREAL LUNAR RETURN (Feb 17)
Two Jupiters, two Saturn, two Venuses, two Plutos, and a Neptune: Indications of this chart are mixed but primarily anticipate unhappiness and intimate personal loss.

Transiting Saturn is most angular (Dsc 1°53'), tipping the scales. Transiting planets foreground are Saturn, Venus, and Pluto with Venus 0°02' from the Saturn/Pluto midpoint. This signifies separation and loss in Venus matters: perhaps simply finding oneself suddenly without friends, or perhaps something more intimate.

This, though, is only the start. Both transiting and natal Venus and Saturn are foreground. Transiting Venus-Saturn and natal Venus-Saturn aspect each other. For those interested, here are the technical details: t Sa op. r Ve (0°09'), t Ve sq. r Saturn (0°24' in mundo), t Ve sq. r Ve (0°26' in mundo), r Ve-Sa conj. (0°50' in mundo), t Ve sq. r Sa (1°39' in mundo), t Saturn op. r Saturn (2°03' in mundo). To these, add Pluto aspects: t Pl op. r Sa (0°55'), t Ve-Pl sq. (1°34' in mundo), t Pl op. r Venus (2°01' in mundo), and t Sa-Pl conj. (2°59').

These are horrible. None of us would want to pass through aspects that so uproot Venus matters. The particulars may be finding himself without friends (or betrayed by what he most loves), as extreme as divorce, grief, or heartbreak, or simply feeling socially inadequate or inferior with loss of allies and popularity. It definitely comes amidst combat: Sun opposes his Mars (0°49') for a bitter, contentious split.

Venus-Saturn themes in return charts typically bring difficulty, disappointment, embarrassment, or remorse in social or love matters, emotional disappointment, spoiled fun, and a sense that “the party is over.” Others coldly refuse one's overtures. There is a noticeable lack of beauty. There is surely a broken heart.

That's the most important part of the chart. Subtleties exist, mostly aspects with wider orbs, such as the interweaving of natal Neptune with Venus, Saturn, and Pluto. The one additional reasonably close foreground aspect is transiting Jupiter square natal Jupiter (1°17') which must give some small reprieve; but it seems unlikely it will outbalance all the rest.

SIDEREAL DEMI-LUNAR RETURN (Mar 3)
Similar conditions exist in the Demi-lunar. Transiting Venus is the most angular planet and is 0°07' from square Saturn in longitude and 0°34' from square Pluto in RA (Venus and Pluto both occupy equator-based angles). Yet it is also 0°54' from mundane square Jupiter, so there is kindness or reprieve.

Much repeats from before: Natal Venus-Saturn is foreground. Transiting Venus squares natal Saturn. Pluto opposes natal Venus-Saturn. Pluto and Uranus most closely join Venus on angles, averaging 0°13' from the angles. Change is most definitely afoot, pieces are rearranging especially in terms of Donald Trump's closest relationships.

But then we have a strong benefic pattern: Transiting Venus and Jupiter are exactly square (0°54' in mundo). Transiting Venus squares natal Venus (1°32') and transiting Jupiter squares natal Jupiter (also 1°32'), both aspects foreground. Transiting Venus opposes natal Jupiter (2°27' in mundo). Therefore, friends come to his rescue, opportunities bail him out, and circumstances lighten.

SIDEREAL LUNAR RETURN (Mar 15)
"Beware the Ides of March." Perhaps that warning is not as necessary this year as it was for Julius Caesar, but the new SLR continues to show the dismantling of relationships.

Transiting Uranus (Dsc 1°12') and Venus (WP 2°29') are most angular, with natal Pluto at MC (4°). The one especially strong aspect is transiting Venus square natal Pluto (0°41') which signifies distancing oneself from closeness and connection as key relationship decisions or turning points come to a head. Uranus also squares natal Pluto (2°58'), so big changes are still afoot. Transiting Saturn and Uranus are square (almost 5° in mundo[/i]), a minor factor that nonetheless joins in on breaking up stable conditions and disrupting the status quo.

The clear message of disrupting existing structures, though, is transiting Pluto opposite natal Saturn within 0°02' in mundo.

Geographic areas centered on map lines have a roughly 150-200 mile leeway (3°) for strong effects. For these mappings of planetary energies, see standard interpretations in Chapter 8 of Sidereal Mundane Astrology. (A link to the free current edition can always be found near the top of the Publications sub-forum.) Readers may wish to consider all planet lines and intersections against the standard interpretations.

t Pluto conj. Capsolar Sun ALL MONTH
t Pluto conj. Capsolar Saturn START to 2/25
t Uranus conj. Capsolar Uranus 2/20-29
t Saturn conj. Capsolar Mercury 2/20-3/12 (exact 3/1)
t Jupiter conj. Capsolar Pluto 3/14 to END
t Jupiter conj. Capsolar Saturn 3/15 to END

MARS TRANSITS:
t Mars conj. Capsolar Jupiter 2/29-3/3 (exact 3/1)

Outer planet sign transits

Post by Jim Eshelman » Wed Jan 15, 2020 1:08 pm

Pluto in Sagittarius (2005-2021)
Rising cultural waves rejecting or seeking to overthrow traditional Sagittarian themes, which in turn arouse retaliatory assertion or intensification of those ideas. The battlegrounds for these polarized struggles include the overthrow of cultural institutions in general; rejection of imperialism, elitism, economic disparity, abusive taxation, and traditional forms of religion, and academia (with consequent aggressive protection and re-assertion of these things). Efforts to overthrow existing culture (whether one's own culture or that of an enemy), generally rooted in religious fundamentalism, cutural chauvinism, or ideas of racial purity.

More positively, revolutionary developments in the areas of religion and philosophy. Very substantial advances in energy production (primarily for far-reaching travel and exploration, imperialism and exploitation, and the support of commerce through greater energy production). Science supporting more industrial power and laying the foundation for broader and faster travel.

Neptune in Aquarius (2009-2023)
Suppressed or diffused social progressiveness, squashed rebellions, deranged concepts of liberty, all setting the stage for a future conflict or breakthrough after the transit is over. Imagined new vistas and possibilities without current capacity to reach or manage them. Roused socialist-leaning liberalism. Failure of universalism, futurism, or true enlightenment to flourish. Shortage of dispassionate clarity, fostered ignorance.

This transit reflects living in a time when most people feel like we are living in a science fiction wonderland, "imagining the inconceivable." Change happens so fast, technical progress accelerating far beyond any vision prior generations had to the 21st century (provided it doesn't involve transportation). One aspect of this is increased complexity with life changing faster than neurology can grasp, manage, and keep up. It has fostered technological surveillance and loss of privacy.

Uranus in Aries (2017-2025)
A volatile time politically. Issues of economics, government, and accelerated armament. Great challenges to the stability of existing alliances: Acute polarization splits former allies (individuals, social groups, or nations) along new axes. Widespread dissatisfaction fuels repudiation of historic closely held views and values. Each such era, while people are passing through it, feels like a transitions between a concluding old cycle and an opening new cycle.

An unyielding, unremitting sense of emergency exists, then autocratic governance increases. Extraordinary autocratic power is yielded (voluntarily granted) to national leaders, who acquire increasing dominion of economic and social issues. Armament, safety, going one's way alone without the encumbrances of alliances... these win out over the demand for personal liberty and social equality. The masses seem more comfortable with an authoritarian father figure to "make everything OK." Absent a state of war, there me be a suspension of checks and balances on autocracy normal to martial law.

Increased polarization and struggle between opposing extremes - each historic period has its own example, whether it be arising fascism vs. socialism (or political elements that, if more extreme, would have emerged as overtly fascist or socialist, extremism of right vs. left), opposing views on slavery, Catholic vs. Protestant wars, etc. Economics (especially trade) are unstable, in a precarious balance. Economics policies become more nationalistic and autistic, increasingly protective, to defend against trade inequities and competition imbalances. Extreme unrest in economically hurting populations.

Saturn in Capricorn (Jan 2020 - Jan 2023)
Individual and political struggles for survival, autonomy, and self-sufficiency. Land & space: Shortages of land and secure space, redefining boundaries; territorial acquisitions and annexations, mineral rights, mining conflicts; walls, embargos, spatial segregation, splitting historically separate countries into autonomous nations. Earth & water crises: Ecological concerns regarding climate change; land- and water-based retaliations by the Earth against destabilizing climate change; volcanic eruptions, earthquakes, no-warning fire outbreaks; water and land rights and conservation. Hunger, food-security, and dwelling issues including crop failures and famine; further crumbling of farming as a viable livelihood; hunger may be weaponized (or may be addressed aggressively). Earth-mindful rebellion religions thrive, including renewal and empowerment of paganism. Major finance developments: Vast financial institutional restructuring and management, especially favoring capitalism. Changes in how we collectively control money and commerce including bedrock foundations, controls, and financial restructuring; institutions aimed at money security are created or strengthened; long-standing economic hardship and social disenfranchisement boil over. Fear: Focus on how we manage and respond to it. Disabilities and misfortune draw focus: "Inferiority" (so-called) more visibile; disability and genetic bigotry; widespread civil liberties conflicts and civil rights resistance activism. Relief from the arts and laughter.

Jupiter in Sagittarius (Nov 2019 - Nov 2020)
(Under development.)

I'm assessing the accuracy of this week's chart interpretation. I think the keynote sense of healing is beginning beginning is correct, based primarily on the House having gotten some real traction on pandemic response measures. There are other details that fit (financial blow and roller-coaster, freaky weather).

Your thoughts?

Here is the Liblunar interpretation repeated as reference.

The Liblunar covers March 11-18. Though repeating themes of earlier ingresses, it seems to turn a corner by adding a strong Jupiter to the mix. Moon (EP 0°30'), Jupiter (sq Asc 1°00'), and Pluto (IC 1°07') are most angular, with Mars and Saturn widely so (but the Ma/Sa midpoint on IC). Moon, still aspecting Pluto (0°30'), has moved away from orb to Saturn for the world but, for Washington, retains a wide, weakened mundane square.

This week brings (or begins to bring) a healing of whatever illness has marked the three weeks prior. For example, if the tragic symbols have referred to the impact of the Wuhan virus, then this week brings a cure, a significant treatment, or a containment. If the illness has been cruel, brutal social forces, then these are corrected. If it has been political despair, then the people's collective mind rises to compensate for that. If there has been war, then now we have room to negotiate peace.

At worst, Jupiter-Pluto signals economic blows and outlandishly freaky weather events. Most of the time, though, this primarily benefic combination is more positive. It challenges existing value systems, ideologies, political ideas, and power systems, freeing up energy and possibility. Add Moon so strong - especially Moon closely connected to Jupiter - and we commonly get prosperity and pride, diplomacy and dignity, and the arising of the people to lay claim to what improves conditions for themselves and those closest to them. This may take socially liberal forms (being a great force for civil rights and the improvement of conditions for all) or socially conservative forms (nationalist, elitist, culturally exclusive) - or show the two still butting heads - but, in all cases, it focuses people's minds and hearts on the well-being of their families and communities.

Interestingly, March 12 is when I first saw a headline that research scientists had isolated the COVID-19 virus, the first step in working on a vaccine: https://www.independent.co.uk/news/scie ... 99226.html

The Mars line running through NJ and NY could point to a more martial tone, with the NY governor creating the containment zone around New Rochelle (which isn't really working) and dispatching the National Guard.
