USA Chart August 2020

Post by Jim Eshelman » Fri May 01, 2020 3:04 pm

A few observations about the U.S. natal chart for August...

SECONDARY PROGRESSIONS
Several long-term progressions currently exist. Many are heading toward exact contact in 2020-2022. The currently active progressions are:
  • p Sun trines p Jupiter, the one positive progression at present. It was exact in March and performed poorly for the expected great fortune for the nation, its economy, and its esteem; nonetheless, I stick with this as the expected expression. Currently it separates by 0°22'.
  • p Saturn trines r Venus, currently applying by 0°06'. This lasts for 86 years (1954-2040) and is next exact in 2022.
  • p Jupiter conjoins r MC (separating 0°24') and squares r Saturn (applying 25'). This places Jupiter at Sa/MC midpoint for the next few years, exact to the minute this year. These aspects last 60 years (1996-2056).
  • p Mars conjoins r Eastpoint. This has lasted many years (1990-2021) and will expire in about a year.
  • p Mercury trines r Mars & octiles r Jupiter. I suspect this is supportive of trade wars. Mercury, moving slowly, currently aspects Mars within 0°32' and Jupiter within 0°09'.
Progressed Moon opposes natal Mercury all month, exact August 13. This is important primarily because transiting Saturn currently conjoins Mercury and opposes Moon. The nation is under other Moon-Mercury-Saturn trends for most of the month of August, so this deserves attention.

SOLAR ARC DIRECTIONS
Solar Arc Neptune squares natal Moon (0°40' separating). Historically, this has been responsible for mass movements of the people - extremes of populism whether on the left or the right, and waves of emotion sweeping, uncertainty, and anxiety across a nation. Concurrently, directed Mars conjoins natal Moon (0°31' applying). Even though the current pandemic is a worldwide affair, this aspect specifically shows it for the United States: (The Mars/Neptune midpoint to Moon was exact in July as virulent disease spiked in record numbers and racial justice protests swept the nation.)

Directed Jupiter squares natal Uranus (0°34' applying). It will be exact in seven months. It has potential for great industriousness, inventiveness, technological progress, and a conversation of social reform. Beginning this month, Jupiter aspects natal Mercury. The combination of these two Jupiter directions is favorable for scientific inventiveness (e.g., a vaccine and/or effective treatment for COVID-19) and restoration of commerce.

Directed Moon squares natal Pluto (applying 0°53'), starting a two-year term. This with Mars-Neptune to Moon triggers the U.S. natal Moon = Mars/Pluto (11') = Neptune/Pluto (47') maturing over the next few months.

TRANSITS
  • Saturn opposes natal Mercury through 8/17 (exact on August 2 when a Mercury-Saturn themed Caplunar occurs).
  • Saturn conjoins progressed Moon until 8/16 (exact 8/6).
  • Transiting Neptune conjoins progressed Sun beginning 8/23 (probable: further embarrassment from and withering of leadership, deception, loss of national identity and direction).
  • Jupiter crosses natal IC through 8/24 (exact 8/11) and squares natal Saturn beginning 8/9 (exact 8/21).

Boyd Chart July 2020

A few observations about the Boyd "Declaration of War" chart for the month of August.

SECONDARY PROGRESSIONS
Several long-term progressions exist:
  • p Pluto tr. r Mars lasts for 86 years (1971-2057) and was exact with the launch of the Iraq War in 2003. (Currently it is 35' sep.)
  • p Saturn conj. r Moon for 81 years, 1943-2024 (currently sep. 47').
  • p Mars op. p Neptune, quite descriptive of the current pandemic and other national crises (11' sep.). It was exact in April-May as the pandemic and racial justice protests hit a peak.
  • p MC sq. p Uranus was exact the last week of July (if this round-hour chart were trusted to the minute of arc) and currently separates by 01'.
  • p Asc sq. r Mars applies by 51'. If this chart is valid and its even-hour time is correct, this will run for about two years.
  • Lesser progressed aspects include p Mercury tr. r Sun (01' sep.). p Venus ssq. r Neptune is exact in August.
Lunar progressions continue to be benefic in June. Progressed Moon trines Jupiter until 8/27. Progressed Moon squares natal Sun all month, marking a crossroads when it is exact August 29.

SOLAR ARC DIRECTIONS
Directed Pluto squares r MC (14' ap.) and conjoins r Asc (18' ap.). These orbs depend on whether the chart is valid and its 11:00 time is exactly correct.

Directed Saturn aspects r Moon six months ago as the 2020 national crisis was gearing up (currently 33' sep.). Jupiter aspects r Mars, exact last November (currently 43' sep). Lesser aspects are d Mercury square r Sun (35' ap.) and d Moon to r Mercury (47' ap.).

TRANSITS
  • t Pluto sq. r Moon until until 8/2.
  • t Neptune conj. p Sun until 8/16.
  • t Jupiter sq. r Moon until 7/6 and aspects r Uranus until 7/14 (exact on 7/6).
  • t Saturn aspects r Jupiter until 8/12.
  • On a rare favorable note, t Jupiter op. r Sun beginning 8/15 (exact 8/30) and sq. p Moon beginning 8/19 (exact 8/30), sitting atop the progressed Moon-Sun square.
