Last week was a week we will remember for a long time, large parts of Europe were locked down and also in other parts of the world strict measures were taken. The mortality rate in The Netherlands is still far below that of the last serious flue epidemic , when 10.000 people died in 18 weeks, amounting to 80 people dying daily!However, it is true that the Corona infection is clearly worse than a bad flue as a disease and in some places like northern Italy and Iran, the situation is bad indeed. At the same China is starting up again and the statitstics seem to point at a first slight improvement in several places.
In a previous post the 2019 Aries Ingress chart was discussed with as the main culprit for this crisis Mars in its detriment on Algol, this notorious crisis star that so often pops up in mundane astrology. In the largest parts of Europe the Ascendant of the ingress chart is in Scorpio and so this bad Mars on Algol is also Lord 1 (the most important house ruler), but in Italy most affected by the Corona crisis, this Mars is on the Descendant (so in the ingress chart calculated for Rome) ! It also strikes the eye that the Italian Ascendant is on Agena, one of the main stars in the Centaur constellation connected with underestimating a deadly poison which seemed to be innocent at first. Below you can view the 2019 ingress chart again, calculated for Rome.
An Aries ingress chart functions on the mundane level like a solar return in a personal life, like a prediction for a year. So it would be a good idea to to be able to give an indication when things seen in the ingress chart will happen, it does matter al lot if this is in the beginning of the year or at the end of it. The texts mention the ingress charts of the season (for example the Cancer ingress) and the signs (for example te Aquarius ingress) to do this, and this seems to work to a certain extent. But because the ingress chart can be seen as a mundane solar return, we could also make lunar returns on the basis of the ingress to check the months. An astrological technique is always only the application of some pricnciple, which in this case is the return principle. It could be so that these lunar returns based on the ingress show events more clearly than the season and sign ingresses.
Ingress lunar return
The first Corona case occurred in Northern Italy on 31 January, this was one of the many Chinese workersin the fashion industry there. In this way the positions in the chart manifest themselves in concrete reality. Basing ourselves on the Italian 2019 ingress chart the lunar return of 15 January under which the outbreak took place is this chart above, which is quite spectacular. This “ingress lunar return” has its Ascendant in the Algol zone and it is reversed compared to the Italian ingress.
Mars main culprit in the ingress chart is on Death Star Antares, by antiscion (position mirrored in the axis 0° Cancer/0°Capricorn) on Saturn / Lord 10 (the second most imprortant house ruler) on Pluto the Lord of the Underworld and Lord 10 is combust. This constellation falls in the ninth house of foreign countries from which the misery came. The Sun combusting Lord 10 is on Terebellum one of stars of fate! So it seems to work quite well this idea and it would be worthwhile checking if we can predict the progress of the Corona crisis clearly by this method.
