USA Mundane Forecast
for the four weeks beginning JANUARY 13, 2021

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.

LONG-TERM (Solar Ingresses)
For the United States, the 12 months beginning January 14, 2021 are more severe than 2020. A striking difference is that 2021 will be a year of action, whereas 2020 was more a year of paralysis. Therefore, 2021's threats will be more actively violent and conflictual. Saturn in Capricorn continues to define the time. Pluto enters Capricorn until 2039. Autonomous survival and solitary self-sufficiency are hallmarks of the post-COVID world ahead of us.

In the 2021 Capsolar, two partile aspects have the loudest voices.

MARS squares SATURN (0°34') with Mars 0°29' and Saturn 0°18' from an angle. Harsh, hateful, hurtful, and destructive, Mars-Saturn incites many forms of destruction and hardship: Deadly violence, fires, explosions, and financial crises are among the kinds of event it accompanies. In an annual chart, its psychological impact is worse: Mars-Saturn fosters hate and the conflict that arises from feeling powerless, shamed, and diminished. In the United States, 2021 will feel like our nation is filled with primitives competing for basic survival amidst widespread hardship.

Nearly as close (but not as closely angular), JUPITER squares URANUS (0°42'). This aspect does not usually occur for disasters (except floods). Jupiter-Uranus is 2021's aspect of recovery and salvation through scientific advances and social revolution. This broadly, boldly liberal combination suggests either a new broadly liberal government or a renewal of liberal political activism in the streets.

Jupiter-Uranus means ideological rebellion (both peaceful and violent) and remapping the larger social contract in which liberal social and political agendas demand wider horizons, expanded opportunities, civil liberties, and enhanced diversity. Inventiveness, new technology and tech vision, futurism, and “good science” engage popular imagination. At its best, it signifies collective optimism and anticipation of good change amidst terrible conditions.

These two dynamics (Mars-Saturn and Jupiter-Uranus) compete throughout 2021, but not in mutually neutralizing isometric tension: 2021 will be a year of activity and activism, though rarely gentle or well-behaved. Mars conjoins Uranus: For the U.S., they are foreground and Moon squares Uranus and Mars mundanely. Mars-Uranus is explosive: If physical bombs aren't detonating then psychological "bombshells" are exploding. It means surprise attack and sudden action, the "lightning war" of blitzkrieg. Moon-Uranus promises swiftly changing circumstances that require rapid adaptation and response. Moon-Mars is most worrisome: Besides its broad sense of emergency and typical Mars expressions of violence, fire, disaster, and damage, it is an aspect of assassination and other severe crises for a nation's leaders. The new president faces unusually severe challenges.

Mars square Jupiter (2°13') suggests economic crisis, especially from aggressive spending. In fact, Jupiter aspects to Mars and Saturn threaten markets just as Pluto, Saturn, and Jupiter in Capricorn show shifting conditions in banking and institutional economic management. This may not be terrible: We surely need to consume significant resources for economic recovery. Also, this year of action includes spinning up the wheels of industry once more: Mars-Jupiter is consistent with economic expansion (greater industry and productivity), as Jupiter-Saturn is consistent with structural investment. Rebuilding infrastructure at many levels is a priority.

Mars-Jupiter is stormy (including destructive weather), but its essential momentum is forward and expansive with an enterprising spirit. I expect it to be useful to recovery. Post-pandemic, I anticipate an era of opportunity for new entrepreneurs and a renewal of entrepreneurial spirit in the country (after so many businesses have collapsed to create a vacuum, and their former principals have lost so heavily: capital investment in new business will be readily available). If that does not occur in 2021, at least the cultural and economic reorganization making it possible will be underway. (A wide Mercury-Jupiter mundane conjunction is optimistic in this regard.)

KEEP YOUR EYES ON RUSSIA THIS YEAR. This year, Moscow has the same two aspects most closely foreground as Washington. However, Jupiter-Uranus is stronger than Mars-Saturn: If we find ourselves in direct competition or conflict, Moscow wins over Washington (and may be part of the "surprise attack" threat Washington's Capsolar shows). - Angularities in the continental U.S. are shown here.


MEDIUM-TERM (The Bridge)
  • Jan 14-17: Saturn Mars.
  • Jan 18-19: Saturn.
  • Jan 20-27: Neptune Saturn.
  • Jan 28-29: Neptune Saturn Mars.
  • Jan 30-Feb 1: Neptune Mars.
  • Feb 2-4: Neptune Jupiter Mars.
  • Feb 5-7: Neptune Jupiter.
  • Feb 8-9: Neptune Jupiter Mars.
Interpret these by the standard interpretations for these planet combinations. Unusually harsh combinations of malefics dominate most of the month. While the Mars-Saturn, Saturn-Neptune, and Mars-Neptune periods are surely the worst, it's not clear that Jupiter's involvement improves conditions; it may, or it may only describe the context and conditions of the Neptune and Mars-Neptune events. Saturn squares Capsolar MC until 1/29 (with Mars overlapping the first few days). Neptune begins squaring CanQ Moon worldwide 1/20. Jupiter crosses Capsolar Descendant as Mars crosses another Capsolar angle then squares Capsolar Moon.

Mars is in Aries all month. During its September Aries transit, news was dominated by fires, election combat, authoritarianism, riots (more peaceful than not) against continuing police violence, and enhanced polarization, so we likely will now experience something similar. Also, Pluto enters Capricorn January 26 (remaining until August 9). -- Summaries of longer-term trends from outer planet sign transits are here.

SHORT-TERM (Lunar Ingresses)

Liblunar (Jan 6)
Effective January 6 to February 3 since the following Caplunar, Arilunar, and Canlunar are dormant. Jupiter (WP 0°20') squares Uranus (MC 2°34'). Jupiter also conjoins widely angular Saturn. These portray much change, reformulation, optimism, hope, and active engagement with a bottom line that things are getting better.

The chart overflows with progressive social and political movement. (Moon square Jupiter, 1°28' mundo, is typical of civil rights moving forward, probably by judicial or activist means.)

Jupiter squares Mars, conjoins Saturn, and squares Uranus: Despite overall optimism, I'm not sure the stock market performs well in January. Also, Moon square Saturn and Pluto shows separation and division. Perhaps this is the disease still having its way, or perhaps it is hardship caused by social violence by whoever lost most in the election.

Caplunar (Jan 13)
The Caplunar is dormant. Moon conjoins Sun and Pluto (effective for the four weeks following), placing focus on the president and on cyclical phenomena such as the stock market.

Great severity and potential for harm lines up near the longitude of the Arizona-New Mexico and Utah-Colorado borders. Los Angeles has Moon-Sun-Pluto tightly conjoined on IC: The SoCal region seems to be a center of great eruption and disruption at a level that stuns people's sensibilities and permanently alters conditions going forward.

Mars squares Saturn within 0°03'. Though it has no practical significance in Washington, Mars-Saturn is angular elsewhere on Earth where its effect will be severe and probably deadly. These include: the American west (either side of the Rockies), the India-Pakistan border, westmost Africa, western Europe (Spain near Madrid, France near Paris, western Germany, and directly through Stockholm), Japan near Sapporo, and Iran.

Arilunar (Jan 20)
The Arilunar is dormant. Moon again squares Pluto (0°12').The most explosive areas are in Southern California near Oxnard and coastal Pacific Northwest.

Canlunar (Jan 27)
The Canlunar is dormant. Moon conjoins Pluto, which has entered Capricorn by 0°03', and opposes Venus (0°48' mundo). Venus-Pluto themes supplement the root message of the persisting Liblunar.

Eastern Texas has a confluence of Venus-Pluto, Mars-Uranus, and Sun-Jupiter lines that suggest intimate, strongly-felt losses from explosive circumstances. (Were it later in the year, I would expect flooding.) Saturn aligns the longitude of Chicago, which includes Milwaukee and Birmingham.

Liblunar (Feb 3)
Effective February 3-9. Mars sets (1°08'), Sun squares Ascendant (1°27'), and Sun squares Mars (0°52') and Uranus (0°39' mundo). The week is fiery and violent with greater aggression and willingness to be combative. This seems volitional, not accidental: Though it may be aimed at the president or the government, it appears, instead, to be their initiative and affirmative acts, i.e., the White House and Congress are getting down to their business of wrangling out tough solutions.

These aspects plus Mercury square Mars and Sun conjunct Jupiter are consistent with war. War seems unlikely during a worldwide pandemic and a new administration, but it is worth mentioning that the lineup of aspects has war as one of its possibilities. (It will have been a volatile month in Tehran since the Caplunar and Arilunar, and nerves seem on edge in Moscow.) Moon's aspects to Venus and Pluto show irrevocable changes in relationships, whether between nations or through the destruction of community and loss of life. Otherwise, we have warring words and aggressive debate laced with the priority of special interests. The main events of the week involve people with money and power working to get more money and power.

Mars setting (square Sun) along the entire eastern seaboard stands likely to draw attention: It is closest through New York, Philadelphia, Washington, coastal Virginia and North Carolina, and southern Florida. Saturn is angular on a curve including New Orleans and Indianapolis. One is nearly inclined to suspect threatening storms months earlier than usually expected: This could be a furious winter. Mars-Saturn converge in mid-Michigan, impacting the entire state.

The Biden Report

Post by Jim Eshelman » Sun Jul 26, 2020 12:27 pm

SIDEREAL LUNAR RETURN (Jan 20)
Effective Jan 19 to Feb 17. In Washington, it seems Joe Biden is the talk of the town, the hub of activity in this SLR occurring the evening of Inauguration Day. This return is one of the main signs that he has won the presidency. However, the chart is terribly threatening: The Secret Service will have to work harder.

Given the heightened danger in this chart, concurrently menacing national charts, and Senator Harris' astrological indications of great personal uplifting, we are justified in concern for Biden's well-being. On the other hand, taking on responsibility for the nation's terrible condition is trouble enough for a whole basket of malefics.

Natal Moon is 1° from Midheaven: He is the center of attention. Transiting Saturn and Sun are conjunct, square Midheaven, their midpoint 0°12' from the angle. Sun and Saturn also square natal Moon. Natal Mars squares Ascendant. Transiting Mars (partile conjunct Uranus) is less than 4° from MC. Mars conjoins his Moon.

These aspects threaten harm, especially for a solar figure like the president. Mars conjunct Uranus (0°03' wide) often means surprise attack or an accident, though it can also mean great task-oriented energy and productivity.

Further showing an occasion of exaltation, and perhaps giving ultimate protection, natal Jupiter is on Eastpoint (1°28') and transiting Jupiter about 5° from Descendant.

Over a dozen other aspects exist - all combinations of Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, and Pluto, plus Mercury squaring Mars-Uranus. (Surely the Secret Service can protect him from a vehicular accident!) It isn't necessary to detail all the possibilities. The main message is that he is the exalted centerpiece of the occasion and exposed to danger - which could, of course, simply be the difficult conditions of the country he now begins to run, presuming he is in Washington, DC for inauguration.

SIDEREAL DEMI-LUNAR RETURN (Feb 3)
Effective Feb 3-17. This is a tough two weeks, though likely with a good measure of joy. The primary angularity is natal Saturn (0°43' from Asc). However, foreground aspects are upbeat and both Suns are (barely) foreground, so let us presume his health is fine.

When natal Saturn is closely angular, survival and managerial instincts are brought to the fore. Emphasis is on one's own demands and self-expectations: He drives himself, seeing more work than seems manageable and perhaps indulging self-doubt or a sense of his own shortcomings in private moments.

But the foreground aspects suggest spring in his step and that he finds means of refreshment. Sun mundanely squares natal Venus-Uranus - Sun-Venus is only 0°13' - and his natal partile Sun-Venus conjunction is foreground. This shows enthusiasm and benefitting from friendships. A 0°02' Moon-Uranus mundane opposition and transiting Venus square natal Moon (0°37') add pleasure, even romance. Though background, Mars opposes natal Mars (0°20') which (if not part of a health crisis) shows him deeply engaged with his opponents.

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.

Outer planet sign transits

Post by Jim Eshelman » Sat Aug 22, 2020 2:31 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 survivalism (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 renewed. Society's relationship to aging and the aged will necessarily change. Revolution in pharmacology.

Neptune in Aquarius (2009-2023)
https://solunars.com/viewtopic.php?f=34 ... 706#p30706
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 14 years 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 of the 21st century (provided it doesn't involve transportation). One aspect of this is increased complexity with life changing faster than our neurology can grasp, manage, and keep up. Historically, Nerptune in Aquarius has fostered technological surveillance and loss of privacy.

Uranus in Aries (2017-2025)
https://solunars.com/viewtopic.php?f=34&t=390#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 transition between a concluding old cycle and an opening new cycle.

As unyielding, unremitting sense of emergency exists, autocratic government 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 may be a suspension of checks and balances on autocracy that are 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, extremes 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)
https://solunars.com/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.

I know it's still early, but I kind of expected to see some mention of Sun-Pluto in the capsolar. Is it because they're considered to be more or less in the background for DC?

Right. Exactly right. Neither planet is foreground for Washington, so it's as if neither planet exists.

There are other places in the world it will be angular. It's also true that every lunar ingress for another year or so (just like this year) will have Moon-Pluto aspects. But solar aspects aren't any more relevant than any other planet's aspects in ingresses unless they're foreground.

Sun and Pluto were foreground and conjoined (both with Saturn) in the 2020 Capsolar.

Yes, I saw the partile Sun-Pluto and was a little unnerved.

So, here's a follow-up question, then, somewhat belatedly.

I don't remember if Fagan or Bradley or SMA discuss this, but are the SSQ/PSSQ etc. techniques ever used in the converse?

I.e., can we treat this Sun-Pluto as an echo of the past, and back-date it by converse-quotidioning it up to the descendant angle to establish the timing of a future event that at the moment of the chart will be in the past?

I am unfamiliar with how to do the forward quotidian stuff, so I'm not even sure how I would do this going backwards, or whether it is even advisable.

But it does strike me that background planets and aspects are possibly echoes of the past. (Of course, they could also be echoes of the future, something in the process of germinating or unfurling but possessing as yet neither flower nor fruit.)

In theory, one would think so. (The correct term is SQ btw, not SSQ - despite what one software product says.) However, I've never tested the Converse SQ or Converse PSSI to find out.

That would matter for just a day. Of course, it will spin around to hit all of the angles in the course of the year.
I am unfamiliar with how to do the forward quotidian stuff, so I'm not even sure how I would do this going backwards, or whether it is even advisable.

What software do you use? We may be able to help.

By the Capsolar Quotidian (SQ) rate, the Sun-Pluto will come to angles April 11-12 (IC), April 15 (Nadir), July 11 (EP), July 30 (Asc), September 29 (Zenith), October 10-11 (MC), December 23 (Dsc), and January 10 (WP).
But it does strike me that background planets and aspects are possibly echoes of the past.
In solar and lunar returns, partile non-foreground aspects seem to reflect "background circumstances" outside of the primary message of the return chart, but in ingresses they seem to have no significance at all. I think the reason is that ingresses - mundane astrology in general - are much more about localization of phenomena on the globe.

I am using Janus v5.3. I also have Sirius 3, but I prefer and tend to use the former.

Moon entered Capricorn a few hours ago - we're off and running.

Most importantly, tomorrow is the Capsolar. We have 35 hours left on the 2020 Capsolar and then the 2021 Capsolar begins. I'm guessing that the lines will be pretty sharp between what happens in the next 35 hours and what happens after 6:32:30 PM EST tomorrow. This will be one for the books!

Indeed! My Doctor for over 35 years called me last week asking me what my best guess is for the manifestations of the 2021 Capsolar, I've been telling him for months its going to be ugly. He believes in astrology but does not study astrology. He knows from our private social get togethers about my passion for Sidereal Mundane Astrology and knows I used to use astronomical cycles in the commodities markets back in the 80's. I told him my best guess is the main manifestations will be equally divided with Covid issues and the political issues, maybe war issues.

Jim, what are your top 3 guesses for 2021 Capsolar negative manifestations?

Great question. Let's see, what do I sort out. (BTW there are positive indications anyway, but I'll respond to your question as asked.)

1. Continued pandemic through most of the year, at least until Labor Day and within a horrible wave in the middle during the months Saturn is within 2° of a Capsolar angles. Labor Day weekend marks a center of collective "back to life" celebration and then there is a lesser bad wave in the fall.

2. Massive civil violence akin to war, with ideological rebellion (some of which is violent). - Many indications this year exactly match the idea of war, but I don't believe there will be true international war during a year that the whole planet is coming out of a pandemic. So it's probably domestic.

3. Recurring physical threat to President Biden with a risk of assassination.

Related to the above, there is a very deep dive into "survivalism" thinking - people's exaggerated responses to fear that survival conditions are rapidly decreasing - with a focus on autonomous survival and solitary self-sufficiency. Also (this is less specific), whether it comes from civil violence, outside enemies, disease, or the weather, a persistent sense of alarm arising from surprise attacks of one kind or another.

2. Massive civil violence akin to war, with ideological rebellion (some of which is violent). - Many indications this year exactly match the idea of war, but I don't believe there will be true international war during a year that the whole planet is coming out of a pandemic. So it's probably domestic.

Jim, do you see ways that we can prepare now, so that this is avoided, by consciously creating channels for this energy to flow through (individually, on scale of smaller clusters-group-communities, and the United States as collective) ?

I think the nature of mundane astrology - of mass-mind - is that it is lunar rather than solar, meaning that it has no element of volition or choice about it at all; and that it always platys to the lowest common denominator that still allows it to express the content of the largest number of minds.

If I'm right about that, then there is no choice by the masses except that (outside of mundane astrology) there is choice by individuals. Individuals in power need to make right decisions so that the context is different. People in general can work to persuade or influence the largest number of people so that collective thinking eventually shifts from the pure mathematical weight.

Mostly, though, I think we need simply to live through it - not resist the experience - with each person making their best choices every step along the way. I despise that the rest of my life likely will be spent with Pluto in Capricorn, which portrays so much of what I wanted shed and defecated from the world's collective body; but, hey, it's the only option for me, so I have to keep making choices consistent with it along the way.

Thank you.

This, I think, is a highly important point!

To drive this home, there is a relevant line in our "Sidereal Astrology Points of Agreement"
https://solunars.com/viewtopic.php?f=8&t=2259

Under "Aspects" it says:
The type of aspect between two planets (the angular separation) does not determine a positive/negative or fortune/misfortune outcome, which, instead, arises from the planets involved, life conditions, and personal choices.
The planets involved... life conditions... and personal choice.

Dani, try to find a place where you can cache food, secure a water supply, and safely hole up for maybe a week, if you have to. And get your shots too. Not just Covid, and the flu vaccine, but get the pneumonia, tetanus and shingles vaccines, plus check your status with other vaccines as well. If there is something you can stockpile to trade, maybe canned tuna or spam or even toilet paper, do it.

As I type this, the new Capsolar is coming into effect (in about two minutes).

We're off and running!

The forecast for this week's Liblunar said the energies are consistent with war - not that I actually believe there will be an international war right now, but that the energies are consistent with that, and we'd expect something similar.

Today, President Biden moved his attention to foreign affairs with a visit to the State Department. Earlier today he announced, we're pulling out of supporting the Saudi war against Yemen, but halting troop reductions in Germany and elsewhere in Europe (Trump's anti-NATO actions) and, generally, re-engaging with our allies, showing the world that "America is back," as he put it. It isn't war at all, but it is certainly an assertion of American military strength and authority as a foundation for foreign policy that proactively will defend democracy and human rights worldwide. There's also the small matter that the U.S. sent a battleship through the straights between Taiwan and China yesterday - the first time ever - which is a strong act. - The shift in foreign relations policy was explicitly forecast.

Also forecast were the "threatening storms" and "furious winter" expected to slice through the Midwest and east over the next few days.

Liblunar (Feb 3)
Effective February 3-9. Mars sets (1°08'), Sun squares Ascendant (1°27'), and Sun squares Mars (0°52') and Uranus (0°39' mundo). The week is fiery and violent with greater aggression and willingness to be combative. This seems volitional, not accidental: Though it may be aimed at the president or the government, it appears, instead, to be their initiative and affirmative acts, i.e., the White House and Congress are getting down to their business of wrangling out tough solutions.

These aspects plus Mercury square Mars and Sun conjunct Jupiter are consistent with war. War seems unlikely during a worldwide pandemic and a new administration, but it is worth mentioning that the lineup of aspects has war as one of its possibilities... Moon's aspects to Venus and Pluto show irrevocable changes in relationships, whether between nations or through the destruction of community and loss of life. Otherwise, we have warring words and aggressive debate laced with the priority of special interests. The main events of the week involve people with money and power working to get more money and power.

Mars setting (square Sun) along the entire eastern seaboard stands likely to draw attention: It is closest through New York, Philadelphia, Washington, coastal Virginia and North Carolina, and southern Florida. Saturn is angular on a curve including New Orleans and Indianapolis. One is nearly inclined to suspect threatening storms months earlier than usually expected: This could be a furious winter. Mars-Saturn converge in mid-Michigan, impacting the entire state.

I didn't know about the battleship moving through the Taiwan Strait... Awkward timing!

Get the fan going because we have a pile about to hit it.

The CapSolar has Pluto conjunct the ASC in Beijing...

In a couple of days transiting Mars will Square the Natal Mars of China!
Transiting Sun will Oppose the Natal Pluto of China simultaneously...
The day earlier transiting Sun will have conjunct the CapSolar Moon.
Transiting Saturn is conjunct China's Natal ASC & Moon....

The opposition of the Transiting Sun to China's Pluto will aspect the transiting Lunar Nodes(trine/sextile)

At 5:18 PM Feb. 7, 2021 As the MC squares the CapSolar Jupiter... Transiting Saturn will conjunct the CapSolar Jupiter

The CapSolar Mars Saturn square with Neptune at their M/P Semi-square each of them comes into play with the transiting Sun opposition to China's natal Pluto... and the Natal Pluto/Mars conjunction.

Much more research required... To be continued!

Does a USA/China relationship possess a constructive kinetic bond? Charting would suggest yes however the issues with Hong Kong most likely will now spill over as will Taiwan's autonomy...

Quite intentional timing, I'm sure. I imagine the message is, "Oh, so you thought the U.S. stopped protecting our friends, eh?" (The other message might also have been, "All of you who keep saying Biden is on China's payroll: Please notice.")
The CapSolar has Pluto conjunct the ASC in Beijing...
Which means the Sun-Pluto partile conjunction is rising. (Sun is slightly closer.) Also, Moon is on EP. If I didn't take seriously Beijing's iron-grip on everything, I'd interpret this as overthrow of authority by a large wave of popular uprising.

Before February is over, Jupiter will cross EP in RA, then cross Capsolar Moon square Beijing's MC.

Yes: I'm sure it's the same issue. China is trying to lock down areas that consider themselves independent (or more independent). China considers that it owns both Hong Kong and Taiwan and probably is about to lower the boom on both somehow.

With this cycle over, it's time to review how things went. It was an unusual mundane astrological month because of three dormant lunar ingresses (including the Caplunar), which left an entire month under the prior Liblunar (superseded only by the next Liblunar).

So much has happened that it's hard to remember "way back when" before the inauguration. I think the last month is really best regarded as the five weeks beginning with the January 6 attempted insurrection (the same day as the month-governing Liblunar). This has dominated much of what has occurred in the interim.

So, first... the Capsolar came in like a lion. No need to detail. It's what we thought it would be. An exception: My remarks on Russia may be wrong. Instead of a great winning streak for the new government, the Jupiter-Uranus has been massive civil protests.

The Liblunar correctly showed the outcome of the Georgia Senate run-off elections (something nobody predicted by non-astrological means when these were written, and which seemed unlikely until immediately before). I think everything I wrote about the Liblunar is correct except maybe for what I said about the stock market: I expected it to have worse problems. Even here, though, the Reddit-fed GameStop spike began around January 27, still under the effect of this Liblunar, so perhaps fulfilling my, "Despite overall optimism, I'm not sure the stock market performs well in January.

So much happened in the four weeks of the Liblunar, I'm not going to begin to itemize it... but I think it was basically correct.


I'm not doing so well picking out local hotspots for special attention. I may stop mentioning them. For example, the dormant Caplunar showed "Great severity and potential for harm... near the longitude of the Arizona-New Mexico and Utah-Colorado borders." I'm not aware of anything that stood out there beginning January 13. Then, for the week beginning January 27 I anticipated "explosive areas... in Southern California near Oxnard and coastal Pacific Northwest;" I know of nothing. Beginning January 27, I anticipated eastern Texas problems consistent with "Venus-Pluto, Mars-Uranus, and Sun-Jupiter lines that suggest intimate, strongly-felt losses from explosive circumstances" resembling a hurricane strike, plus Saturn impact on the longitude of Chicago, Milwaukee, and Birmingham. Perhaps I'm not getting the local news to show these things but, again, I know of nothing consistent with this.

The new February 3 Liblunar started the first new cycle in a month. It probably mostly applied to the pending battle moving toward the Senate impeachment trial. I think I was dead-on that it showed the White House and Congress getting on with their business and robustly engaging to get things done. (Some key thresholds in this occurred.) It's all pretty good IMHO as far as it went. (This time, I think I was accurate on timing of severe, threatening storms through the Midwest and "a furious winter," though I didn't hear anything about Michigan being the heart of trouble.)

I wonder if I can track events fulfilling the rapidly-changing periods marked by the Bridge. Here is the breakdown for the last month. - Conclusion after review them is: Though a couple of periods seem wrong, these planet definitions, for the most part, are right on target!

Jan 14-17: Saturn Mars. FBI investigations of the Capitol riots participants take up a lot of news. Heightened military-style security around Washington including arresting someone entering town with weapons and forged credentials. Biden unleashes details of his $1.9T relief plan. A definite mark is that a wave of Federal executions by the Trump administration occurred through these days.

Jan 18-19: Saturn. DC turned into a militarized, locked-down security zone.

Jan 20-27: Neptune Saturn. All sorts of strangeness. It fits the surprising amount of uncertainty and the distrust of the time, but it's hard to pin to exact happenings. (Sorry for the vagueness.) It was during this time, though, that the House transmitted the Article of Impeachment to the Senate (a nice Saturn-Neptune theme). New COVID-19 strains from Europe and Africa earned news attention, heightening distrust and perhaps more dread. Terrible weather across much of the nation for a few days. The Reddit-Robinhood-GameStop stock market guerilla warfare began.

Jan 28-29: Neptune Saturn Mars. Nothing I can see. These were two pretty positive days!

Jan 30-Feb 1: Neptune Mars. Weird virus news of many kinds, alternately disturbing or encouraging depending on what you heard and where you stood. Not a strong hit, probably.

Feb 2-4: Neptune Jupiter Mars. The biggest Washington news was that the Senate Dems were mobilizing their strategies to push through Biden's relief plan, centrist Republicans proposed counters, there was a lot of real engagement - to me, it seemed Congress was doing its job the way it was intended (for the first time in a long time). The GameStop stock madness continued (an exact fit to the planets). Senate leaders agreed on the structure of the power-sharing arrangement in the closely split Senate. Biden announced, "America is back!" in terms of military presence and international diplomacy. In a reverse to the militarizing trend, the U.S. and Russia extended the START Treaty for five years.

Feb 5-7: Neptune Jupiter. Breakthrough vote in the Senate: A 51-50 vote endorsing a barely modified version of Biden's relief package after a 15-hour overnight voting marathon, with VP Harris breaking the tie. (This sets in motion using reconciliation as a filibuster-proof way to push through the plan.) The Super Bowl surprise had (I'm sure) high impact on the gambling industry.

Feb 8-9: Neptune Jupiter Mars. Positive, active moves in Congress, positive virus news (e.g., Pfizer doubling its vaccine production rate). The start of Donald Trump's impeachment trial in the Senate.
