For the United States, the 12 months beginning January 15, 2019 are dominated by Uranus on IC square Sun on Eastpoint (0°08' wide in RA). Sun-Uranus signals startling events such as surprise attacks, sudden changes in leadership, and technology breakthroughs.

URANUS forecasts explosions (literal or metaphorical), sudden rupture or eruption, shock, surprise, overflowing normal bounds, and revelations. Uranian events often define the character of an era. SUN concentrates attention on the government (especially the head of state) with heightened perception of government’s presence in people’s lives. Sun's aspects to Uranus and Pluto infer rebellion against present leadership and rejection of prevailing political views. Sun-Pluto brings disrespect for the law or those that create or enforce it.

MERCURY CONJOINS SATURN in the foreground. Expect restrictions, delays, failures, or calamity in transportation and communication. Information flow is interrupted or rationed. Data integrity is doubted: cybersecurity remains a higher priority than cyber-expansion. Economic narrowing and backtracking on recovery interrupt commerce. More newspapers and retail close their doors.

Reinforcing the message of economic crisis, MARS square JUPITER mundanely is geographically distinctive to Washington. This could be as slight as further government shutdowns or as ravaging as a market crash, but probably will be something between. Resources are squandered, stretched past capacity. Belief-driven aggression accelerates. Bigots have louder voices. In nature, as in human affairs, expect stormy weather.

MERCURY CONJUNCT PLUTO anticipates collisions of information, communication, and ideas. Perhaps opponents in Congress will engage passionately again, unlike the tepid, rigid polarization of recent years. Investigations drill deeply into untapped data to disclose information that reframes how people think. Cyber attacks include remote undermining of critical communication and cyber-control networks.

With Saturn in Sagittarius all year, immigration, aviation, elitism, hierarchical economic separation, and nationalism (anti-internationalism) dominate the public discussion.

Arisolar (Apr 15)
As the July 17 Cansolar is dormant, the Arisolar remains the Quarter chart until mid-October. It shows great severity. Saturn rises within 0°02' in Washington. Pluto is 2°34' below Ascendant, with Saturn conjunct Pluto. Together, Saturn and Pluto PVP square Moon, with Moon-Saturn partile.

With SATURN RISING so closely, expect loss and deprivation, whether of property or human life. The stock market will falter and the economy narrow. Banks are imperiled. Damage from natural disasters increases. Foremost with this Moon-Saturn-Pluto trio, human cruelty rises, hearts harden, and sadness spreads like a dark cloud. Saturn-Pluto brings dramatic hardships with a sense of irrevocable loss or separation. Moon-Saturn means sacrifice, loss, and sadness. Moon-Pluto emphasizes separation, alienation, and departures. The emotional impact of genocide matches these aspects, though of course other physical outcomes are possible.

In the dormant Cansolar, Moon squares Uranus (0°19') for the world and Moon opposes Mars in mundo for Washington. Most simply, this creates a sustained sense of emergency and threat.

  • URANUS squares Cansolar Moon all month (exact 9/18). This signifies winds of change. Conditions rapidly shift. Something new is breaking the horizon. New technology startles us, changing more or less everything.
  • Transiting Mars conjoins Cansolar MC 9/26 to 10/3. This makes these changes and surprises more threatening for a week. Echoing themes of the Cansolar, it brings heightened potential for explosive violence, sudden attacks, or at least a general sense of emergency.
Caplunar (Sep 9)
The Caplunar covers September 9 to October 6, especially the first week, September 9-16.

Mercury-Venus. Happy news media and good press. Events include diplomacy, negotiations, and treaties, especially agreements of peace. (Rare for disasters.)

Sun-Mars. Intensified and highlighted Mars themes, including greater aggression and willingness to be combative. Events commonly are fiery, explosive, violent.

Sun-Jupiter. Intensified and highlighted Jupiter themes. Usually, positive events, with protection against deeper harm; but not always. Politics egg on current circumstances, motivated by a non-philanthropic tendency of people with money and power wanting more. (Probably unseasonably high amounts of rainfall.)

Sun-Neptune. Chaotic, disorienting events, maelstrom-like and often ferocious.

Jupiter-Neptune. Unreasoned optimism (faith). Social cohesiveness (favoring the collective, conviction that we thrive better together). Social idealism, inspiration, hope (dreams of something better); collective action (civil rights movements, labor strikes, socialism, humanitarian acts; diplomacy usually succeeds); may intensify opposition, resistance, bigotry. Belief drives decisions (religious themes). Market optimism fuels speculation (gambling). Disillusionment (misplaced optimism, no confidence votes, coups, failing leadership). Excess, immoderation, glut. Entertainment themes (box office bonanzas, record-breaking movie attendance, new entertainment companies or technologies). Entertainment or religious setting for other events.

Mars-Neptune. Panic, terror: surging adrenaline + heightened hysterical emotion (positive or negative). Increasing risk of treachery, sabotage, other betrayal, poisoned relationships, and scandal. Feeling the ground fall out from under one’s feet. Specific expressions include fires, earthquakes, other violent natural events, leader deaths or crises, populist uprisings and mobs and the response they draw, financial panics, and mass murders.

Trump's main long-term transit remains Neptune square natal Uranus. Its effects are primarily psychological. Uranus-Neptune aspects always mean a clash of divergent realities. With Neptune transiting Uranus, it commonly means that a compelling personal vision or dream incites one to make abrupt, surprising moves or shifts. Transiting Mars squares SSR Moon or its progression non-stop August 15-22 producing a week of irritation, friction, intolerance, and edgy conflict.

This is an unpleasant month with survival instincts having the strongest hold on Mr. Trump's psyche. Natal Saturn is 0°06' from Westpoint. Transiting Saturn rises more widely, opposite natal Mercury (1°13' in mundo).

His mood is dour. Natal Saturn foreground especially exposes our insecurities. We hear the skeletons rattling bones in our own closets and feel the encroachment of our own shortcomings. Typical Saturn behaviors arise in response: we become demanding, controlling, cautious, barricaded, evasive, and territorial. Health can suffer.

With transiting Saturn also foreground, this behavior is a natural response to greater demands by the world. Survival is threatened, even if it's only psychological (or ego) survival. Circumstances narrow, restrict, delay, and frustrate. Money is drained, especially with transiting Saturn square natal Jupiter, which does not have the benefit of being foreground. Saturn opposite natal Mercury is quite acute right now: He feels unheard, criticized, and discouraged. He must be methodical, conscientious, and attentive to meet the demands. His business interests suffer.

Additionally, a T-square of seven planets occurs in the deep background, producing three partile aspects that provide background information. Sun conjoins Mars (0°09'), reflective of outright combat and other struggle. Mercury conjoins Neptune (0°14'), which deepens his communication and business problems and adds evasiveness, misdirection or misrepresentation, confusion, and disorientation: forthcoming facts are all doubtful. Third, Mercury squares Jupiter (0°57'), which might give him negotiating advantage or may merely mean that all this concerns a legal matter. Finally, Uranus squares Pluto (0°22'), suggesting an "everything changes now" impact that dismantles existing structures.

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 » Sun Mar 31, 2019 3:41 pm

Transits to Capsolar planets seem valid when interpreted as inherently, these would not be locale-specific. Preliminary conclusions from the first months of watching is that they are indeed important identifiers for locales where the 'natal' planet was angular in the Capsolar, or where it spins to a CapQ angle on a particular day.

t Pluto conj. Capsolar Pluto ALL MONTH
t Saturn conj. Capsolar Saturn 9/3 to 10/2
t Jupiter sq. Capsolar Neptune START to 9/5
t Jupiter conj. Capsolar Jupiter START to 9/8

t Mars sq. Capsolar Neptune 9/8-9/11 (exact 9/9)
t Mars sq. Capsolar Jupiter 9/8-9/11 (exact 9/10)
