Normally abnormal

Last week we took a look at the current solar return of New York City and as we could expect, there are very negative indications to be seen. The Big Apple is the epicentre of the Wuhan virus epidemic (it is remarklable how the name of the virus has evolved from Wuhan virus to Corona virus to technical-scientific Covid-19) and this was most clearly shown by this solar return. The chart used to calculate the return was made by making use of the method of the Great Conjunction of Saturn and Jupiter, the NYC chart data are 17 July 1623, 17:47:15 LMT (no chart picture given here).

If you use this strikingly effective technique which can also be applied to get charts for countries (read my series in the AA Journal) it is adamant to carry out rigid tests. Does the chart you are using reflect historical events clearly enough? This can be tested  very well as we are talking about concrete events here. The Wuhan virus pandemic is irrefutably reflected in the current NYC solar return but how about 9-11 the other disaster which struck in the city 19 years ago? If this cannot be seen in the predictive techniques, this would be be a big problem for the chart.

However, the NYC solar return under which these fateful events took place, is crystal-clear (click on the download button above to view the chart). The first thing striking the eye is this conjuction of Mars the planet of violence with Pluto the Lord of the Dead, who wil always suddenly pop up most unexpectedly . Mars is retrograde so the violence will not come in the way it usually comes and it is placed on the descendant of the opponents. In opposition with this extremely violent Mars-Pluto conjunction we have Venus Lord 12 of misery in conjunction with Saturn Lord 8 of death, placed onAldebaran a very powerful purely martial and  intensely red and violent royal star.   

Only five percent

That would be quite sufficient for a lot of misery,  but the Moon is also on disastrous Algol, yes there it is again, in the twelfth house and the nodal axis is on the cusps 2 and 8. So It emphasizes these houses with the malefic South Node on the cusp of the house of death. On the other side is Lord 1 / Mercury highlighting this axis, Lord 1 is very much the city. In fact, it could not have been shown more clearly and if modern astrologers had known and used these techniques, they might have predicted the event. But they missed it and this can be expected if you use only 5% of the available astrological methods.


These astrological delineations lead to other more philosophical conclusions. You can see in the charts that these disasters will happen, so in this sense they are normal, it is not bad luck. An individual may fall ill or meet with fate, and this is collectively so too. This pandemic is of course extraordinary in the literal sense of the word, but also normally abnormal, it is not the the first time at all and problably not the last. Man does not control the world with all his little technologies, not now and never, as astrology, the decisive death-blow for the scientific world-view so cleary shows.  Let him hear who has ears to hear.

The Big Apple Eclipsed

Of all the cities in the world it seems that New York is most heavily affected by the Corona crisis, it is called the “epicentre of the wordlwide Corona crisis”  in the media. The mundane charts of this city about which so many songs were written ,must indeed be very dark. But how do we get such a chart of New York? Of course, you coud take a look at the Aries ingress chart calculated for the city to analyse what would be happening there,  but to make it really specific its would be  better to use a city chart.

This can be done by the technique of the Great Conjunctions (“GC’s”) of Saturn and Jupiter which will give you a reliable and effective city chart. You will take the GC chart  preceding the foundation of the city as a “mundane radix” , which for New York brings us to 16 July 1623, 17:46:15 (LMT) Asc 29.05 Sagittarius. This city chart will not be shown and discussed now , as this was done before, what interests us now is the current solar return which can be calculated on the basis of the GC city chart.

This return (click on the download button) shows very clear signs of crisis, hard to overlook, which again proves the effectiveness of this, maybe at first sight somewhat strange technique. The first thing striking the eye is the Ascendant falling on Labrum the main star in the Cup. Labrum is a star of fate striking, the cup filled with poison will have to be drunk, it shall not pass you by. Moreover, there is this a concentration of astrological factors around the nodal axis, a planet is an energy which structures reality so a concentration of energies indicate an important event.

In this solar return the Luminaries the Sun and the Moon are even in opposition, a Full Moon indicating tensions but this takes place near the nodes. And a lunation (a Full Moon or a New Moon) near the nodes is an eclipse so there is a lunar eclipse in the the NYC solar return, the luminary will go out in the city, the Moon is the General Significator of routines which will stop.

Around this eclipse Pluto the Lord of the Dead, malefic Saturn, the antscion of Jupiter Lord 6 of illness and Venus Lord 10 in the mundane radix are assembled, an enormous energy concentration. The elipse itself is on Wega the Vulture coming down, no need for explanations. The texts tend to be positive about Wega, but in mundane astrology it again and again it proves to be a real vulture. So even without checking the synastry with the city radix, the indications for a disaster are over-whelming. This was peredestined when the city was founded which may be reason for some reflection on the nature of our celestal art and life on earth.

A hairy star

It was discovered in December, the comet C-19 when it was still so vague that could only be seen by means of a strong telescope. Nevertheless, there was a lot excitement as it looked as though the comet, that received the name Atlas, would become extremely bright when it would be approaching the Earth and the Sun. However, it is not clear yet if this really will happen, last week Atlas seems to have becoming less bright, comets are a bit unpredictable as might be expected with a view to their nature. Nevertheless, everything about this comet is remarkable so that is worthwhile to say something about it astrologically.

Comets are traditionally called “hairy stars” and seen as signs that we may expect dramatic events, as they disturb the normal order of planets and stars in quite a dramatic way. So a comet is exactly the kind of phenomenon you could expect to pop up in the sky above a world in Corona crisis. For all clarity, not every little comet discovered by our estranged cousins the astronomers with their mighty telescopes is astrologically relevant, only those that can be seen with bare eyes. After all, light is of fundamental importance in astrology and this comet seems to have enough of that, even if it will become less bright.

The name C-19 is remarkable of course and just as interesting is the fact it was discovered in December when the first Corona cases began to manifest in Wuhan. To astrologically delineate a comet its whole signature is to be noted, as Wiliam Ramesey explains in Book 4 of his Astrologia Restaurata. Very important is the comet’s colour which shows what planet energy work in it, Atlas is bluish-green to be associated with Mercury. Bull’s eye, as Mercury is the general significator of the lungs and of trade, traffic and economical activity! The sign in which the comet appears shows which  parts of life wil be most affected.

Almost all of the comet’s  orbit falls in Gemini (by projection) a human mercurial sign associated with movement and exchange! Atlas crosses the zodiac  (the line of maximum intensity) on the 23th of May and it conjuncts the malefic Pleiads then, the very  malefic Wheeping Sisters. The name Atlas, the Titan carrying the world on his shoulders, fits in seamlessly, he is the father of the Pleiads and their half-sisters the Hyads (found nearby) who are just as sad. Regardings constellations, Atlas moves through Perseus, the hero who chops off te Gorgon Medusa (Algol) ‘s Head, Algol stood out as one of the main causes  of the Corona crisis (see my recent posts).

It is yet to be seen how bright Atlas wil become but its delineation according to traditional rules is very appropriate. It should be clearly visisble between 25 march and 31 May after that it will loose light rapidly. So if we connect Atlas to the crisis we may expect the first serious measures to end the lock-down in the course of June.  

The Medusa Wave

In my posts of the recent weeks the Corona crisis was analysed by looking at the Aries Ingress charts for several places in the world. It all started in December 2019/ January 2020 in Wuhan in China and then it rolled out over the whole world from East to West like a dark wave. China is now starting up again, in Europe the turning-point seems to have been reached, but the US are not yet so far. It was malefic Mars in its detriment on Algol (on Perseus’ Sword-hand which chops off monstrous Medusa’s head) in the 2019 Aries Ingress chart that “caused” or better mirrored this crisis.  

The Vulture

How poisonous Algol is, will be clear if we go back to the 2001 Aries Ingress chart (not shown here), in which the other malefic Saturn was on Algol and that was the year of 9/11! Calculated for the US, this Saturn on Algol is in the first  house and on the MC there we find Altair, the main star in the Eagle or the Vulture which should send the shivers down your spine. It is clearly indicated where the danger came from, but it would be quite an achievement to see this in advance. In mundane astrology charts should also be delineated with reference to charts of a higher order of time. In case of ingress charts you should always check the connections with the Great Conjunctions of Saturn and Jupiter (“GC”) valid at that moment.  

Now this the GC of 2000 and the degree of the conjunction is on yes:  Algol, Medusa’s Head! So if an ingress chart in the 20 years covered by a GC activates this point, the whole crisis potential will released as it was in 2001 and now again. It is good to note that this Algol GC will be “in power” till December this year after which we will have a new GC without Algol. As I said in a lecture in January we will leave the crisis behind then. The new GC will also bring about the defintive power shift from West to East, and the Corona crisis will play a role in this shift.   

The fall of the US?   

This brings us to the US, Corona  came relatively late to America, but now it seems to be hit very hard. In many countries in Europe (but not everywhere) the new 2020 Ingress looked better than the 2019 chart. But how does this look for the US? Click on the download button to view the 2020 Ingress chart calculated for Washington ( starting to work from 20 March). What strikes the eye, is that one of the two most important house  rulers, Mercury Lord of the tenth house has just entered its detriment and fall at the very bottom of the chart. The Ascendant is on Agena in the Centaur constellation, connected to things that do not seem to be dangerous at first sight but turn out to be extremely poisonous!

Ingress VS 2020 

Lord 1, the country is Mars in its exaltation but it conjuncts Jupiter in its fall on Pluto. Not very nice and on top of this the Descendant falls on Algol! So the US chart for this year activates the crisis degree of the Great Conjunction mentioned above, which wil be active till December this year. Is Corona the last phase in the US loosing its leading position indicated by the new GC in December? Indeed this appears to be so.

Location, location and location

In classical astrology chart interpretations tend to be clear and explicit, not everything depends on your “spiritual” development or your increasing consciousness of your anima as a result of which everything would be possible. Therefore, it is a good practice to regularly make predictions (publicly!) and to come back to these predictions later. This is very instructive because in this way you are reading in the book of nature, the planets and the stars are where they are and nature is the teacher of the (celestial) art, Natura Artis Magistra.

Recently, we looked back at my delineation last year of the Aries ingress chart of 2019 which caused the Corona crisis and the conclusion was that it was not bad at all, but only too much based on the actuality then, Brexit (do you still remember what that was?).

Accurate prediction or mistake?

Late February I wrote on this blog that because this 2019 Aries ingress with Mars on Algol had caused the Corona crisis, we could soon expect improvement as late March we would have a new ingress chart without Algol. At first sight this seems to be a somewhat embarassing mistake but this not the case at all! As for the location where it all started, China and especially the Wuhan region, which is opening up again now, it was actually quite accurate! Moreover, if you follow the statistics of the crisis (not through the standard media that seem to be mainly spreading panic) you can see we seem to be reaching a turning-point, at least in The Netherlands (in the US it is different). The number of new infections has been going down over the past four days.


So what was missing in my prediction was location, I simply could not imagine that this crisis would also strike so dramatically in Europe and I was not the only one. Just like in real estate what counts in astrology is location, location and location but it is too much work to check every Aries ingress chart for every important location. Only within Europe there are huge differences, Italy is heavily affected, Sweden has not taken any measures! With a view to location, if you make the new Aries 2020 Ingress chart for Wuhan the expansive North Node, a kind of super Jupiter energy, is on the Ascendant, its opening up now. For Italy this new Ingress chart looks a bit different, you can view it by clicking on the download button below.

In the 2019 Ingress for Italy the villain was Mars on Algol right on the Descendant, that is why Italy is so heavily affected. This disastrous position is not found any more in the new 2020 Ingress as you can see but still this is not a nice chart. Of course, what matters are the fast moving specific factors like the cusps (on stars!) and the planet parts that make the difference. Only in Italy we have Saturn Lord 1 on the Saturn part of imprisonment and escape and only there the Ascendant is on the star Deneb Algedi, in the Capricorn constellation, the story of which is the confrontation with Typhon, that is death. However, what strikes the eye most, is the MC, not only the Pluto-Mars –Jupiter conjunction is on it by antiscion( position mirrored in the 0° Cancer- 0°Capricorn axis) but it falls right on Death star Antares! So in Italy it looks less positive than in many other countries which have the Ascendant on Altair the vulture returning  back to heaven. 

Corona timed – The Ingress Return

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.

Always Algol..

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.

From Abroad

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.

Corona: Medusa’s last breath

The series about the US presidential elections will be continued next week, this week we will look at , yes the Corona crisis. To begin with, I will repeat what I posted a year ago about the then new 2019 Aries ingress (a chart calculated for the exact moment the Sun enters Aries again, location Brussels).  For all clarity, I have cursified the text.

So what to expect this year in Europe? Will the tensions decrease or should we prepare, and this seems to more probable, for more trouble. The first thing that strikes the eye is the royal South Scale on the ingress-Ascendant, and that is not very pleasant. The South Scale, the Fist of Justice, will rigorously and ruthlessly create a new  balance, this will be painful and harsh. Malefic Mars is ingress-Lord 1 and it is placed in the seventh house of other people in its detriment in Taurus. Not too good for cooperation. Mars is also conjunct the sword-hand of Perseus who chops off Medusa’s Head, this is near Algol, headhunter and crisis star. On top of that, there is this upcoming Full Moon, with the Sun as Lord 10, poining to the separation.

Futhermore, it is striking that we have a Saturn-Pluto-South Node conjunction around the third cusp of routine movements and procedures which we can expect as a consequence of Brexit. All in all , this is a chart with increased tensions compared to the 2018 ingress, but this does not come as a surprise.

Looking back at predictions is very instructive although it may be painful (that is why not too many astrologers do this, they tend to concentrate on post-diction, then you are always right). Predicting is possible but a planet position can work out in many ways which makes it a bit of a slippery path. Last year around this time it was all about Brexit (do you still remember what that was?) so my interpretation leaned that way. But if you forget for an moment about the Brexit specifics, it is not a a bad prediction at all , especially the fixed stars are very clear but also the affliction around the third cusp. This ingress 2019 will be valid till 20 March when we will have a new ingress.

What we can learn from this, is that you necessarily make a prediction on the basis of the actual context (which was Brexit at that time), but it is a good idea to try to look further,as an ingress will be valid for a year! What I forgot last year was that this horrible ingress Algol-Mars falls on the Great Conjunction of Saturn and Jupiter on Algol in 2000. This means the big crisis potential in the Great Conjunction chart will be forcefully activated this year. So do not forget to relate an ingress to the current Great Conjunction too!INGRESS BRUSSEL 2020Download

How does the new ingress chart for 2020 look (click on the download button to view it)? Certainly, this is better than 2019, no ruthless South Scale, no Mars in detriment near Algol, no concentrated affliction around a cusp. On the Ascendant is Altair, the main star in the Eagle a powerful star of aspiration, not malefic at all. Saturn Lord 1 is about to leave the malefic twelfth house of isolation (!)  to conjunct the Ascendant, and it will increase in essential dignity by doing this. Jupiter is Lord 10, ruler of one the most important houses in the chart and it is placed in the malefic twelfth house on Pluto, which obviously is not very good. Probably what is shown here are the effects of the Corona crisis, which will not be gone overnight.

This can be expected but we can conclude that this ingress chart is much less tense that the 2019 chart, moreover in December 2020 the horrible Great Conjunction of 2000, which triggered so many problems in the past twenty years will finally be left behind. Corona is Medusa’s last breath.

Will Joe Biden become president?

On 3 November this year the presidential elections will be held in the US and it has become clear by now who the contenders will be. There is no doubt that Donald Trump will be the Republican candidate and if the Corona virus does not get him before November, after all he belongs to the age group most in danger, he will be the man to beat. There are only two men left who may become Trump’s challenger, “socialist” Bernie Sanders and moderate Joe Biden, who was vice president under Barack Obama. Regular readers of this blog will remember hat Donald Tump will not be re-elected (his chart is too negative) and this makes the other two aged gentlemen all the more interesting. Either Joe Biden or Bernie Sanders will be the next president of the United States. 

There are many ways to predict if someone is going to get a job, but in case of an election with a fixed date and finally only two contenders, the lunar return is a very good choice. The winner’s lunar return covering the election should be nice, it is some achievement to get the most influential poltical job in the world. Whatever the other astrological prediction methods show , you are not going to win this battle under a bad lunar return. You can approach this question in this way because the situation is simple with a fixed date for the end result and only two contenders.

The election return

Let us suppose Joe Biden is going to be the Democratic candidate who should beat Donald Trump. In that case his lunar return under which the elections are held should give us some powerful positions. Biden’s birth data are classified as A in the Rodden rating, indicating a high reliability.

What strikes the eye imediately is the fact the Asc/Des axis is reversed compared to the natal chart. This says something like: the other person will take your place, not a sign of great success. On the Ascendant we find Prima Hyadum , the main star of the Hyads the half-sisters of the weeping Pleiads, strongly connected to disappointments, not exactly what you would like to see.

And the profections?

Another method which can be sharp and very satisfying in its simplicity are the profections. From birth you will move a house further every year, the condition of that house including stars, planets in the house and the house ruler will give a general description of the year. Biden will  be 77 years old when the elections are held and this brings the annual profection to the malefic sixth house. The ruler of the sixth house is Venus which is extremly weak in his natal chart in the twelfth house in its detriment and combust! That does not look nice at all. The month profection  brings us to the fifth house which contains a positive Moon in its exaltation but its ruler Mars / Lord 5  is on the merciless South Scale on the 12th house cusp. Not very bad, but not convincing either.

The conclusion seems to be clear. As Trump will not be re-elected (he has the painfully limiting South Node conjuncting the Moon on his asc in his  election lunar return), his opponent will win. So this automatically means Biden will not be the Democratic candidate and this makes an analysis of what is going on in Sander’s chart even more interesting.

Acute medical astrology – Measures against Corona

This week we will not look at an actual chart but at the medical-astrological analysis of the corona virus which has now also reached Europe. The traditional astromedical model did not include viruses and bacteria, but it was aware of infection diseases. The idea is that an infection will only make you really ill if your body is in an unbalanced state, if you are balanced it will be much easier to deal with an infection.This is confirmed by the statistics, the greater part of the infected persons only develops mild symptoms , the infection is the most dangerous for the elderly (just like the flue).

In order to be able to say something more about the corona disease from the perspective of medical astrology, we need to describe it in terms of the medical-astrological model by looking at its “signature”. In the traditional model a disease is caused by an excess of one the elements or “humors” which has disturbed the balance in the body. Viruses and bacteria can only become real pathogenics in such an unbalanced “surroundings”, they are a reality, by they are not more than one factor in the whole pathogenic process.


The corona symptoms look like those of the flue, which is a phlegmatic disease, so an illness caused by the Water element. Winter is the phlegm season when this humor is strong, therefore we have these waves of flue mosty in February when the phlegm peaks. The corona disease is not a flue but it shows all charactertistic of a similar phlegm disease, the coughing, the fever and the problems in the lungs, although it is obviously more serious than flue. According to the traditional perspective phlegm is accumulated in the lungs so there we see a lot of problems in case of phlegm excess. Older people naturally have more phlegm, so they are more vulnerable, old age is the phlegmatic phase of life. That corona strikes in winter is logical, winter is the phlegmatic season and this is also exactly the time we have a very weak retrograde Mercury in detriment and fall in Pisces, Mercury is the planet of the lungs.

What to do?

To protect the body optimally against the virus, the amount of phlegm has to be kept low. Hot spicy  foods are good,  like red pepper which also contains a lot of Vitamin-C strengthening the immune system. Vitamin C can be associated with the Water element, so it can regulate Water, you can take up to 4 grams daily extra in these times. Good herbs are thyme, very hot and dry against the cold and moist phlegm and anti-phlegmatic elder (tea mixture till 12 grams daily), good Chinese herbs would be heating astralagus and reishi mushrooms.


A good heating oil is mustard oil (in the food or on the body) ,as a stone a martial heliotrope (wear with skin contact )would be effective as it mobilizes the martial fighting power in the body stimulating the immune system. Aromatherapeutically pine tree oil or eucalyptus oil would be fine. All these measures strengthen the lungs and diminish the amount of phlegm so that a possible infection will be fought off much easier. Especially when you show symptoms of a slight phlegm excess in the lungs (coughing, sneezing, shorter breath), it would make sense to take these measures.      

An Algol Pandemic

The Corona virus is spreading over the world, and the question is what are the astrological backgrounds of what seems to be developing into a pandemic. In a previous post we analysed the 2019 Aries ingress (the exact moment the Sun enters Aries again) for Wuhan, the city of the first outbreak. But now it concerns the whole world and there is no chart for the world, we always need a place to calculate a chart. What is possible however, is checking the Aries ingress on very tense positions. If we only look at the generally relevant parts, so only aspects and planets on stars and no angles or cusps, we have a kind of world chart, as these positions are the same everywhere. Click on the download button below to be able to view the ingress chat.

This Aries ingress was calculated for Rome, it was in Italy that the virus mysteriously manifested in Europe for the first time, the first European patient has not been found. First, we will look at the things that are the same for the wole world, so not at cusps and angles, and there are two indications for extra high tension. There is an applying opposition between the Sun and the Moon, so an upcoming Full Moon. A Full Moon is the moment the Moon is at its weakest and if we see the Moon in a very general sense as the people, this is not very positive of course. The more so because the Moon is on Labrum, one of the three stars of fate. This does not mean anything specific yet but it is not very positive.

The second general indication is the position of malefic Mars in its detriment in Taurus, so it will show its nastiest side.That is not nice but this Mars is also placed on a star we often run into in mundane astrology, Algol “the most malefic star in the heavens”. The key words traditionally connected to Algol are unsuitable for the ears of our younger readers, an oubreak of a disease with many victims would be something Algol could be connected to. So yes seen very generally, without making the chart local and specific, there are signs more negative than average, only with Mars in play we would tend to think of a serious military conflict or disastrous fires.

If we make the ingress more specific by looking at angles and cusps, this Mars is almost exactly on the descendant in the ingress for Rome and Mars is Lord 1, most out-spoken the country in 2019. So whatever Mars will bring, it will strike very hard  (or for the first time ) in Italy. Venus is Lord 6 of illness in the ingress for Rome an it is in narrow sextile with Mars. It is also striking that in the winter ingress (calcuated for the exact moment the Sun enters Capricorn, chart not shown here), Mars is in opposition with the Algol-Mars in the annual ingress, so it will be activated in winter.   


What can we expect, can we say something about this astrologically? On 21 March we will have a new Aries ingress without this Algol-Mars and without an upcoming Full Moon and this kind of flue-like viruses tend to disappear at the end of winter so we may expect it to be over by then.
