Coronavirus Astrological Update
From shaken up financial markets to international travel restrictions to a virus yet to be contained—here’s what the stars say is headed our way. Your guide to astrology and the corona virus.
It’s been quite a crazy month in the news, and as an astrologer, I consider it my job to keep you informed, aware, and to also provide my astrological impute as I know it to be. I am not trying to create a panic, just trying to get make sense of it all. And in doing so, I work with the planets, the influences, the frequencies
Here is my view on astrology and the corona virus: how the current and impending astrological lineup could shape public health, the economy and more. I welcome your feedback!
For 2020, the possibility of an economic downward spiral event that could be triggered by the January 12 Saturn-Pluto conjunction in Capricorn, the sign that rules governments and the economy. The stellium of planets that we all feared.
These two planets aligned in Capricorn for the first time since 1518, traveling in close contact from December 2019 through late February 2020.
True to its influence—taking us all by surprise, having made a huge impact, this situation with the Corona virus came to light, exhausting our economy, our health, and the break down of society as know it to be.
1. Saturn and Pluto shake up economies, bring hidden threats to light.
With the Saturn and Pluto conjunction, “the global economy may well be subject to the ever-present dangers of economic deterioration. This could set the stage for the ultimate Plutonium backlash. US stocks plummet, small and larger businesses close down.
Jupiter entered Capricorn, a tricky placement.
On December 1, 2019, the very first case of “2019-Co,” as the virus is called, was detected in Wuhan, China. This occurred as Jupiter—the planet of abundance, foreign affairs and travel—was preparing to end a 13-month visit to its home sign of Sagittarius. On December 2, Jupiter moved in to Capricorn, conjunct Saturn, and Pluto, though out of degree, it still created and left an impact. .
3. Saturn and Pluto have met up at times of war, recession and financial overhaul.
Saturn and Pluto meet every 33-35 years, but in a different zodiac sign, taking nearly three centuries to return to a sign. The last Pluto-Saturn conjunction on November 8, 1982, coincided with the end of a brief recession. Historically, there have been incidences of economic shakeups or wars when these two planets unite.
The Saturn-Pluto unions of 1914-15 dovetailed with the start of World War I and stretched until the next Saturn-Pluto conjunction (in Leo) in 1947, which aligned with the end of World War II.
On November 16, 1914, the U.S. Federal Reserve began operations as Saturn and Pluto (both retrograde) united in Cancer. Right before that, the world was rocked by the Financial Panic of 1914. With anticipated war threatening global markets, spooked investors pulled out of their securities in a scramble for cash and gold. This led to an unprecedented shutdown of the London Stock Exchange for five months, and the U.S. Stock Exchange for four months. For six weeks during August and early September 1914—as Saturn and Pluto made close contact—almost every stock exchange in the world was closed.
Saturn is headed into Aquarius, an air sign, on March 21. Possibly a cure?
On March 21, serious Saturn will begin its first leg of a three-year journey into Aquarius, which is an air sign. This indicates that some challenges may come through anything spread through the atmosphere, including respiratory infections and airborne diseases.
As disciplined Saturn enters the sign that rules society and community—all group gatherings—this phase will impact community and social services. We will likely see Saturn’s imprint on public health and government-operated offices under Aquarian rule, with much needed structure.. With Saturn’s tendency to be extra cautious, people could become more divided, quarantining or barring access. Saturn in social Aquarius could bring the cancellation of events, holidays and conferences—anywhere large groups of people gather. Though on the flip-side it will bring people closer, more united as this situation may bring light to life as we know it to be, more gratitude. More humanitarianism.
6. Tightened regulations around community, pharmaceuticals and more.
Will there be a cure? And how will it impact us all? Saturn in Aquarius is a tell-all. Saturn rules rules, laws and regulations—and Aquarius rules innovation, including anything chemical or pharmaceutical. The ruling planet of Aquarius, Uranus, is in money-minded Taurus until 2026, which could double this effect. Though under Saturn in Aquarius, technology is at its best! Inventions are made. New innovative ideas are brought to light. This can be a whole new road that we travel...
As authoritarian Saturn descends on the sign that rules public information and technology, changes will be made, and will continue to spark the uprisings associated with Uranus and Aquarius, especially as people clamor for access to information that has a direct bearing on their daily lives.
Air travel restrictions (and fears) will be strong until July.
Restrictive Saturn’s move into airborne Aquarius can impact the flight industry, short-circuiting business travel. Saturn will make its first foray here from March 21 to July 1, then it will return again from December 17, 2020, until March 7, 2023.
