USA Mundane Forecast
for roughly two weeks beginning JANUARY 3, 2022

If you are unfamiliar with the methods and interpretations of Sidereal mundane astrology, please see my free book Sidereal Mundane Astrology. (A link can be found near the top of the Publications sub-forum.) For standard interpretations, see Chapter 8 of the current (17th) Edition.

USA Mundane Forecast §§§ The Biden Report §§§ Other Locations §§§ Ingress Summaries §§§ Transits to Capsolar Planets §§§ Outer Planet Sign Transits


LONG-TERM (Solar Ingresses)
Capsolar effective Jan 14, 2021 to Jan 14, 2022. (Summarized from my original interpretation in the Jan 13-Feb 9, 2020 forecast.)
  • More severe than 2020, but a year of action instead of paralysis.
  • Saturn and Pluto in Capricorn continues to define conditions, emphasizing autonomous survival and solitary self-sufficiency.
  • MARS square SATURN (0°34', exactly angular). Harsh, hateful, hurtful, destructive hardship, e.g., deadly violence, fires, explosions, financial crises. Fosters hate + conflict arising from feeling powerless, shamed, diminished: Primitives competing for basic survival amidst widespread hardship.
  • JUPITER square URANUS (0°42'). Recovery and salvation through scientific advances and social revolution. Collective optimism anticipating good change. Broadly, boldly liberal government or political activism: Ideological rebellion, remapping the larger social contract, liberal social agendas (demanding wider horizons, expanded and diversified opportunity, civil liberties). Invention, futurism, new tech (or tech vision), and “good science” engage imagination. (Uncommon for disasters except floods.)
  • Activity and activism, rarely gentle or well-behaved.
  • Mars-Uranus. Explosive: physical or psychological "bombshells," surprise attack, sudden action, "lightning war" (blitzkrieg). Moon-Uranus. Swiftly changing circumstances requiring rapid adaptation and response. Moon-Mars. A broad sense of emergency: Violence, fire, disaster, damage, assassination (or other severe crisis for leaders).
  • Economic difficulties: Economic crisis and threatened markets (Jupiter to Mars-Saturn). Shifting conditions in banking and economic management (Pluto, Saturn, Jupiter in Capricorn). The upside: We surely need to consume significant resources for economic recovery.
  • Structural investment. Rebuilding economic foundations and physical infrastructure.
  • Spinning up the wheels of industry, economic expansion: Greater industry and productivity (from the same aspects).
  • Mars-Jupiter is stormy (including destructive weather). Forward momentum, expansive, with an enterprising spirit useful to recovery. Post-pandemic era of opportunity for new entrepreneurs, renewed entrepreneurial spirit, readily available capital investment.
Libsolar (Oct 18)
Effective Oct 18 to Jan 15. (Summarized from my original interpretation in the Oct 13 - Nov 19 forecast.)
  • Pluto (WP 0°43') suggests high impact events. Saturn (Dsc 2°) suggests loss, unhappiness, burden, and death. Life conditions are extraordinarily dreary. Sun is (IC 3°) square to Pluto (0°42') and Saturn (0°52 mundo). Mars aspects Sun-Pluto.
  • Great threat to the president. While it is possible these are legal or political threats, they more closely resemble the astrological patterns for the eight presidents who have died in office, especially those who died from assassination.
  • The same aspects could signify an assault on the body and spiritual heart of the nation. Charts for 2021 would make more sense if we were at war - a big war! - though it seems unrealistic that a world emerging from a terrible worldwide pandemic would turn to war.
  • Natural disasters could strike in the fashion of a Category 5 hurricane. A lesser possibility (I think it less likely) is that a new winter brings a new pandemic wave.
  • Pluto (sq. Mars) sets through New Orleans (and along a curve northwest to Montana). Mars is on IC on Florida's west coast and due north to about Detroit, with Pluto angular through Miami.

MEDIUM-TERM (The Bridge)
During this entire period, transiting Uranus squares and transiting Saturn conjoins Capsolar Ascendant, reflecting tension between the old and the new, perhaps political gridlock and, especially, the tug-of-war between collectively forging a "new normal" for the future and recent restricting circumstances. Saturn transits always show a time of increased loss, grief, and narrowing.

Through January 4, we still experience amelioration for the holidays: Transiting Jupiter conjoins CapQ Moon worldwide 12/22 through 1/4, as if voluntarily abating the hardship with two weeks of generosity, kindness, and sympathy.

Summaries of longer-term trends from outer planet sign transits are here.


SHORT-TERM (Lunar Ingresses)

Liblunar (Dec 28)
Dec 28 to Jan 10. As we round the corner toward a new year (with a two-week Liblunar), Sun is rising - always a hopeful symbol coming forth from hardening times. The sense of a "new dawn" and "the light finally returning" that people sought in 2021's opening will be realistic as 2022 begins.

Otherwise, we have more Venus conjunct Pluto squaring Moon exactly, this time with Mercury in the mix. Social exchange seems to be flourishing. A peaceful, regenerative time has been forged for the holidays. People are content to interact with each other freely and celebrate memorable good times together without excessive drama.

Atlanta is somehow a hub of activity and attention with Moon (with all her aspects) on MC and Sun rising. Folks in Maine should anticipate a brutally cold bit of winter when they make their plans.

Caplunar (Jan 3)
The Caplunar is dormant. (Expect turbulent, stormy conditions near Boston.)

Arilunar (Jan 10)
Effective Jan 10-17. The roll-over week of the Sidereal year seems to start off pretty happy. Venus is half a degree from IC, closely conjunct Sun on the ecliptic and square Moon-Uranus in azimuth. The tone is upbeat, comfortable, even celebrating.

The chart above is in azimuth to highlight the most important features. Moon conjoins Uranus on the Vertex, both square angular Venus, with the Venus-Uranus PVP square only 0°22' wide. Much of this upbeat spirit involves unusual entertainments, novel pleasures, and a sense of being free and able to pursue a life of liberty (if not a libertine life).

The Biden Report

Post by Jim Eshelman » Sat Nov 14, 2020 12:47 pm

SIDEREAL LUNAR RETURN (Jan 10)
Effective Jan 9 to Feb 6. President Biden begins the new year weighted by great concerns and again under great threat. Transiting Saturn squares natal Mars (0°49') as the two most angular planets. He is engaged in battle and, at the moment (under this return), the odds are against him. Transiting Mars also squares his natal Midheaven (partile). Transiting Mars and natal Saturn are also foreground in the lunar return (though widely). This is a hard month.

Additionally, transiting Mercury conjoins natal Pluto within 0°00' (mundo) in the wide foreground, both also square natal Mercury (0°11'). In contrast to other forms of Mercury-Pluto, this stressful transit usually forces a confrontation: Decisions are called due, commitments may have to be made, and, above all, unambiguous answers are required. (He needs unambiguous answers - needs the fact - and people also demand them from him.)

Other aspects are typical of those that bring crisis and (metaphysical or physical) threat to seated presidents, such as the middleground Mars-Neptune conjunction (0°47'). Pluto's transit to his Jupiter (now exact: 0°01' wide in the SLR) is usually positive but, at root, shows great shifts in his rank, standing, and esteem. If his 8:30 birth time is exactly right, Neptune continues to transit 0°09' from his IC, affecting his identity as expressed through his most intimate surroundings and connections.

Indeed, there are reasons to think this may not be a matter of state but something more personal. Much as in his natal chart, his natal Venus/Saturn (0°06') and Sun/Saturn (0°35') midpoints are on the horizon. Transiting Saturn squares his Venus (2°39' mundo) in the foreground. His natal Sun-Venus conjunction and Venus-Uranus opposition are highlighted by the SLR's angles. In any case, his attitude and approach is paternal, deeply caring, protective, and deeply feeling the impact of events on others. After Mars and Saturn, the next most angular planet is natal Uranus, 2° from Ascendant but squared by Saturn within 0°07' mundo: He feels constrained, not fully at liberty to act boldly in the most pressing matters.

Post by Jim Eshelman » Sat Nov 14, 2020 12:48 pm

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.

Transits to Capsolar Planets

Post by Jim Eshelman » Sat Nov 14, 2020 12:49 pm

Transits to Capsolar planets are important identifiers for locales where the 'natal' planet was angular in the Capsolar, or where it spins to a CapQ angle at the time of the aspect.

t Pluto conj. Capsolar Sun START-Jan 4
t Uranus sq. Capsolar Mercury START-Jan 7

t Mars sq. Capsolar Neptune Jan 7-10 (exact 1/8)

Outer planet sign transits

Post by Jim Eshelman » Sat Nov 14, 2020 12:49 pm

Pluto in Capricorn (2021-2038)
viewtopic.php?f=34&t=2475&p=33906#p33904
Harsher, struggling, dystopian: people doubt they will regain guarantees of safety or security from violence, economic crisis, or cultural breakdown. Autonomous self-sufficiency, struggle for survival. Need to preserve and restore survivability of the planet. Shortages of land, secure living space, and privacy (territorial conflicts). Hunger and dwelling insecurity. People determining anew how they want to be governed. Control vs. being controlled. Increased social isolation and focus on survival (anticipating breakdown of society or survivability of the world with depleting stability and resources). Intensified tensions between individual survival vs. connected wider community, and between uplifted and controlling classes vs. the debased and controlled classes. Breakdown of old structures and outmoded patterns. Bedrock financial institutions are challenged and reassessed. New economies emerge, including a structural reconceiving of work, jobs, employment, and earnings. Anything father-themed comes under attack (and retaliates). Ancient grievances and resentments are renewed. Society's relationship to aging and the aged will change necessarily. Revolution in pharmacology.

Neptune in Aquarius (2009-2023)
viewtopic.php?f=34&t=388
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)
viewtopic.php?f=34&t=390&p=2560#p2560
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)
viewtopic.php?f=34&t=3344#p28419
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, embargoes, 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 visible; disability and genetic bigotry; widespread civil liberties conflicts and civil rights resistance activism. Relief from the arts and laughter.

Etc. Biden is, indeed, having a bad week. Though everyone knew prices were inflated, a couple of key reports have made the fact headlines. The Supreme Court blocked his executive order that larger employers require vaccination or testing. He's now pushing to set aside the filibuster rule to tackle voting rights legislation - and he has a fight on his hands within his own party. Numerous other small things as he shows up for work day-by-day and gets blocked. He's on his way to the Hill right now to lobby Dem Senators to promise to take strong action. As further forecast:
Additionally, transiting Mercury conjoins natal Pluto within 0°00'... both also square natal Mercury (0°11')... this stressful transit usually forces a confrontation: Decisions are called due, commitments may have to be made, and, above all, unambiguous answers are required. (He needs unambiguous answers - needs the fact - and people also demand them from him.)
We probably also are seeing confirmation of his birthtime. Not only is the SLR quite right (and the troublesome Capsolar two days away), this feels like Neptune's transit to his IC is exact right about now.

Jim, I hope I am not violating the integrity of this tread topic, if so just delete or move, or I will delete or move. Since it is obvious Biden's political opponents are going to saddle Biben with his Adminstration fault for rising inflation, its beginning to appear to me the partile t Jup-Nep in mid April partile 90 the Cap Moon has a 50% of timing the peak of rampant inflation, timed by natural law. If so Biden with his double whammy of angular Neptune SSR & t Nep to Natal want know what hit him. Your thoughts on this Jup-Nep to Cap Moon relative to Biden's charts?

I haven't looked at his transits, though if Neptune is still on his IC then the Jupiter-Neptune aspect brings Jupiter to his natal angles - probably a really positive sign for a short while.

But it's about to be a hard year. The main feature of Saturday's Capsolar is an angular Sun-Pluto conjunction. The year is foremost an accounting of his administration with anti-government and anti-president forces having great strength.

I understand. I never will forget Jimmy Carter was saddled with very high inflation with commodity prices + Iran failure which doomed his Presidency. Could not Moon-Mars-Neptune in new Cap also be read as inflationary panic type prices? Shortages of commodities in stores are increasing. I feel Biden may be facing an out of control situation in these two areas with his SSR/Natal Neptune.

Could be, yes. I see this more often with Mars-Neptune alone than Mars-Neptune with Moon, but it's not out of the question. In any case, Mars-Neptune is the most noxious aspect for presidents, whether their death or snowballing crises.

We're in the last few hours of the old Capsolar. Coming just after midnight Eastern time: The new Capsolar.
