Interpretation of 2018 Capsolar

Post by Jim Eshelman » Sun Dec 17, 2017 4:29 pm

Remember Uranus-Pluto in the 2016 Capsolar? Uranus was 0°30' from one angle, Pluto 3°43' from another, and they closely squared each other (1°11'). That year, it seemed the whole world turned inside-out and topsy-turvy as populism raced through streets and election booths and, the more iconic someone or something was, the more likely they would be tossed.

The 12 months beginning January 15, 2018 will be a stronger, less forgiving version of the same pattern. This year's Capsolar for Washington has Pluto square Ascendant within 0°08', and Uranus 0°42' from Westpoint. Foreshadowed by 2016, this year will be unstable, revolutionary, revising, remapping, anti-establishment, and often anti-government. It will embody a spirit of revolution that assaults current systems to tear down existing, iconic structures. However, the same wave plays differently, with Republicans now controlling all parts of government, than during the twilight of the Obama administration: Someone else is "the man" right now, bearing the greater vulnerability in this unusually volatile midterm election year.

Success in the 2018 elections will usually fall to whomever (in general, or in a particular contest) can present himself or herself as the greater rebel.

To break this down a bit more, Pluto signals high-impact events that stun the senses, causing separation, severing connections, and confrontation between mainstream and counter-establishment sensibilities. Events are fiercely political: leader deaths and crises, terrorist attacks, bombs, financial crises, catastrophic destruction, and severing historic relations. Natural disasters include hurricanes, earthquakes, and floods.

Uranus signals explosions (literal or metaphorical); sudden rupture, shock, and surprise; and overflowing normal boundaries and limitations. Expect disclosures and revelations, shooting massacres and other surprise attacks, changes in foreign relations, changes in leadership, riots, revolts, and other populist uprisings (and their consequent suppressions).


Changes in foreign relations are a certainty in 2018. A foreground Sun-Venus conjunction squares Uranus (within half a degree). Venus-Uranus especially signals substantial changes in relationships between nations. The present administration has already signaled its wish for significant, sweeping changes in America's foreign policy. These aspects are also foreground throughout much of the Americas, so the U.S.'s stance regarding the Western Hemisphere may especially shift.

Venus-Uranus also signals shifting social values, especially increased liberty in Venus matters and slingshot retaliation against the push for freedom. What would 2018's version of legalizing same-sex marriage be? We may not yet have seen it as more than a blip on the radar, as Uranus and Pluto insist on startling us with the unlikely and unpredictable. The so-called "culture wars" of recent years will kick up more intensely for the midterm elections. A fundamental event, probably of a solar nature, will mark 2018 in the same way that John Glenn's orbit, the Kennedy and King murders, the civil rights and gay rights eruptions of the '60s, Patty Hearst's drama, the Columbine shootings, and the Berlin Wall's fall immortalized their respective times. Sun-Uranus and the Sun/Pluto midpoint on IC concentrates the voice of rebellion on those in the highest office.


A third major feature of the Capsolar, universal to the whole world, is Moon's conjunction with Mercury and Saturn. Moon conjoins Mercury 0°51' in eclipto and Saturn 1°36' for the world in general but 0°57' in mundo for Washington. This Mercury + Saturn theme, therefore, applies to the entire world and, in a more negative way, especially applies to Washington.

We have had many Moon-Jupiter aspects in Capsolars of recent years during economic recovery. Expect the opposite from this close Moon-Saturn. Outright recession is not out of the question. The Capsolar had a close Moon-Saturn aspect in 1819, 1837, and 2008, which should be enough to give any student of American money crises cause for concern. It also appeared in the Year chart for the Galveston, Labor Day, and Andrew hurricanes. Its record for violent inhumanity is even worse.

From Mercury + Saturn, expect world wide restrictions, delays, failures, or calamity relating to transportation and communication breakdowns. Communication fails either from technical failures or because people simply stop listening to each other. Commerce is interrupted in the new, more negative environment. More newspapers go out of business, and more small business close their doors. Flow of information is interrupted and rationed. Moon-Mercury also keeps our attention on the media which, itself, is much of the story of the new year.

Although sign positions are rarely important in these ingresses, I can't escape the sense that this aspect will mingle with Saturn's passage through Sagittarius, so expect themes of internationalism, immigration, aviation, elitism, hierarchical economic separation, and, well, missiles... These will take up much of your headline space for 2018.

Moon-Saturn itself signals hardship, sacrifice, loss, narrowing, and sadness. There is little cause for celebration. Bereavement for widely beloved figures, deprivation and disappointment, destructive assaults by people and nature, and other forms of hardship focus primarily on alienation and divisiveness. It will be a good year for undertakers.

Finally, Washington has a PVP conjunction of Mars-Jupiter (1°15'). This furthers the Moon-Mercury-Saturn concerns of financial crisis. It could be as slight as the government shutdown of 2013 or as ravaging as the market crash of 1929, but probably will be something between. Resources are squandered, stretched past their capacity. Moon-Saturn does not leave much room for positive expressions of Mars-Jupiter, such as boosted productivity. Religious evangelism and other belief-driven enthusiasm and aggression accelerate. Bigots have louder voices. In nature, as in human affairs, expect stormy weather.

Here are the astro-maps for the Capsolar for the U.S. The most important lines, of course, are the Moon-Mercury-Saturn lines through the middle of the country - we should memorize those locations. However, there is more: Neptune skirts the West Coast, falling very close to San Francisco (politics? earth quake?) but still quite close to LA (and the square to MC is just north of LA, just south of Santa Barbara). Pluto drops a vertical that touches southern Florida right about Palm Beach, being essentially right on top of Ft. Lauderdale and Miami (and Pluto square to Ascendant crosses even hotter targets). Sun and Venus (square Uranus) own New England, but also fall close to NYC.

As usual, the first map is for direct angle crossings; the second one for squares to MC and Asc.

The strong economic and revolutionary themes of the Capsolar might have a manifestation at about this time. Insofar as Mercury deals with news, information and media of exchange, there may be an important and notable development regarding cryptocurrency around these dates. Perhaps a business acceptance, or a government regulation. This may simply reflect what my mind is thinking of, so what do others think about it?

Excellent observation Derek! I have been thinking about this tight Moon-Mercury-Saturn cnj all year. I went back and looked at all Capsolars for US trying to pick-up clues, but got no historical clues. I see the main 'theme' of this Capsolar as Sun-Uranus, probably manifesting as more government 'reforms/changes' by the political party in power (to the victors--go the spoils). I see angular Sun partile 90 Uranus as manifesting 'outstanding incidents' related to Sun-Uranus symbolism. Politically, the Country is equally divided, so maybe news with a Saturn connotation for half the people in the country. Previously, I have looked at this MO-ME-SAT cnj as a possible economic depressant and noted the Stock Market quietly put on a daily reversal last Friday. W.D. Gann taught always pay close attention to the first week of trading for any new year, he recognized historical evidence that certain trends for the entire year can sometimes be recognized with what happens in markets---first week of trading year. I see no great harm coming to the country with this Capsolar Sun is tightly cnj Venus. The mundo midpoint of Sun/Pluto=IC, I see as a consolation of more power by the ruling party. If we go out and look at the mid-terms election later this year, we should be able to allow the 'themed' Capsolar Sun-Uranus as possibly symbolizing major political changes in DC, but only TIME knows for sure.

Jim writes from ISR (Interpreting Solar Returns):
Foreground Planets, both natal & solar, set the tone of the entire period covered by a Solunar Return. All other planetary aspects manifest within the context of these foreground tone or theme setters.
Even though Jim’s above words were not specifically written for Sidereal Mundane Astrology (SMA), I want to apply these words to DC’s 2018 Capsolar (Master Chart of the Year), with some of my own speculative thoughts from a strictly political standpoint.

What do we know for sure that is presently on the political ‘Stage’ pertaining to DC politics? By Jan 19, 2018, DC must endeavor to come to agreement on a budget; otherwise, the threat of the government shutting down will always be lingering above the country’s political heads. I can see the tight background cnj of Moon-Mercury-Saturn in DC’s 2018 Capsolar as possibly representing an unresolved Budget hanging above the political heads in DC. Also, we know for sure the Country is in dire needs of a new infrastructure (transportation) political policy. Both parties seem to agree upon this infrastructure/transportation need. There is talk of a trillion $ spending infrastructure/transportation policy being passed for the year 2018. I can read the background tight Mo-Me-Sat cnj in the 2018 Capsolar as having something to do with a possible infrastructure/transportation policy. All within the context of the main tone/theme setter of the angular partile 90 Sun-Uranus (changes/reforms). Just thinking out-loud here, politically, with DC’s new Capsolar.

Moon-Mercury-Saturn will take many forms during the year, I'm sure (an ambulance as a car bomb? sheesh!), but this summary by CNN this morning of world-wide effects was particularly demoralizing.
CNN wrote:Freedom of the press
Strongmen in Southeast Asia are taking Donald Trump's signature line -- "fake news" -- and using it to not only discredit the media but to also lock up journalists and shut down news sites. A Philippine news site, which ran afoul of President Rodrigo Duterte, may close. A pair of journalists in Myanmar arrested for reporting on the Rohingya. There's little criticism of these heavy-handed tactics from Washington or Trump, so Asia's dictators are emboldened, observers say.

I can't say that we're in a really bad time for the market. There's too much residual gain still on the books.

And I didn't really predict a major crisis for this year, but definitely some trouble, definitely something unlike most recent years.

I can honestly say that the market, for the last week or so, has been behaving quite different from, say, last year.

Without a doubt. We will have to wait till end of Capsolar year to determine if the Moon-Mercury-Saturn tight cnj has something to do with changing the market from an up-trending market in 2017 to a down-trending market in 2018. Until we make new highs for 2018, I would say the market at the very least, on balance, will incur a downward correcting trend for 2018.

A 20% correction will carry the market down to 21,280. I will check and see where the market will have to close by end of year for a yearly reversal, a rarity. I can't see any panic driven SMA symbolism, can you? The only thing I can see is that Moon-Mercury-Saturn in this Capsolar with t. Saturn hitting Moon & Mercury more than once this year, which in my mind is enough to keep market from making any more new highs this year. With t Uranus at Cardinal 0 degree, par-excellent symbolism for lots of volatility this year. What goes up has to come down, and unless we can isolate other major SMA symbolism for a downward trend in 2018, I will go with the Moon-Mercury-Saturn cnj in 2018 Capsolar as main symbolism for downward trend, something I predicted months ago with SMA as a possible solid red flag for down market in 2018, with possible major market top. All happening at Trump's celebratory State of Union speech. As I have always said, major bottoms occur at the worse psychological market pessimism, and major tops always occur at the best psychological market optimism. We are seeing classic psychological stuff here for major top. Only TIME left for us to know for sure if we may have seen a major market top, maybe for our lifetime :?:

Moon-Mercury-Saturn affects the whole world, but (due to the mundane conjunction) hits U. S. harder. We also have the Mars-Jupiter PVP conjunction (conjunct in azimuth near 90 degrees = due East or Antivertrx).

I see increases unease or panic in 3rd quarter (Moon-Neptune in Cansolar) and the worst effects for commence in 4th. This willl be a really cheap Christmas season, and THAT sounds like families are already hurting badly.

We know everything is psychological. We have to allow this Moon-Mercury-Saturn downer possibly affecting all world markets.

Link below to S&P Chart reflecting Dow prices. It is now appearing a possible significant/major Market Top occurred on Jan 29, one day prior to Trump’s State of Union speech. It remains to be known for sure, but it could be the State of Union speech to the public, fundamentally (news) timed a major top in the Market with DC’s 2018 Capsolar with the triple tight Moon-Mercury-Saturn conjunction symbolizing possible Market depression for 2018. Time will tell. Markets always discount very positive bullish market news as well as discounting very negative bearish market news. Trump’s speech was a most bullish news report for the Markets, but the Market had long ago discounted this bullish news, long before it was reported to the public by Trump.

Post by Jim Eshelman » Tue Feb 06, 2018 7:09 am

In some respects, I would like to see that this is the case - that an actual top was Monday 1/29. Remember, I'd been predicting that 1/26 (the Friday before) would be the actual breaking point for Trump, and 1/29 is the first business day following. (I still think that there is some critical Mueller stuff that happened late on the 25th that we don't fully know about yet, but Trump was deep in the middle of and it shook him to his roots; but that's another conversation for elsewhere.)

I don't have personal financial motives for wanting to see the market drop, of course. My meager 401(k) had reached 2.9% growth for the year (it's early in the year) and, after Friday, was down to 2.6%, and after yesterday to 1.1%. Ultimately that's not a big deal, and I didn't even lose that much hard cash, it will likely spring back in the next 30 days; but, over the course of the year, I hope the account managers see the trends and adjust the investment portfolio for the roller-coaster.

We see no major panic SMA symbolism which is good. It's the panic symbolism which ultimately drives the Country into deep depressions/recessions proven by your historical SMA financial panics. The panics do great economic damage to the common people. I hear you Jim about something happening around the 26 with Muller/Trump investigation that is not public yet. I guarantee you this: If indeed something damaging is getting ready to happen to Trump, you can bet the smart money knows and are taking market profits, which is reason for top. If this is indeed the case, when/if damaging news becomes known publicly with a big down day in market, it probably will be time to buy. The insiders ALWAYS know these things way before it becomes public knowledge.

The one panic indicator is the one I mentioned yesterday. The Cansolar has a 0°16' Moon-Neptune square. (It's a PVP square, so you have to do extra work to know it's there.)

But my general sense is the same as yours, I think. This doesn't feel like the year we get a 20% correction. It feels like the year of some hard times and maybe the start down the recession path. And, because businesses look like they are hurting in the 4th quarter, it looks like a bad Christmas season, and that implies families are already hurting so much by November that they are pulling back.

My main interest is to see if the Moon-Mercury-Saturn cnj in the Capsolar confirms the deepest % correction since the major bottom in 2008. So far, it certainly appears an affirmative. But, if market makes new highs, then I will be wrong on the 2018 Capsolar being a Red Flag for a significant correction, at least 20%.
