Trump in Al Sarfah

This week shocking images came from the US. Instigated by the president a raging mob of Trump supporters stormed the Capitol, the heart of American democracy. It is a miracle that only a few people were killed, because the police controlled itself it did not turn into a bloodbath. This danger was clearly present, with more than a few neonazis in the mob and a hardly concealed call of Donald Trump to lynch his vice-president Mike Pence. Pence could be brought into safety, this will have been the end of his dog-like loyalty to Trump.

So it is interesting to take a look at progressions of (almost) ex-president Trump at the moment, click on the download button below to be able to view them. Striking the eye is the (primary direction) of the MC on the progressed position of Saturn in its detriment, so showing its nastiest face and indicating  that Trump lost the election. The Part of Fortune is on the South Scale now, the merciless Scorpion’s Claw harshly restoring the balance and the Part of the Sun, especially important for rulers, is on progressed Mars in its detriment, so the fighter planet will also show its most violent side. This conjunction falls on Vindemiatrix, the star of the Sorcerer’s Apprentice, who calls up forces he can’t control. Note the parts are swift, one degree is a month, so this is quite precise.

Al Sarfah

The MC, moving about a degree a year, will still be on this nasty Saturn for some time and the next six months the Part of the Sun will be moving over chaotic Neptune, by antiscion the progressed Moon will oppose this position. The same Moon can tell us more about what is going on, in another way, by its movement through the lunar mansions. These are our own Western lunar mansions which were forgotten, but now they are back. The Moon wil leave the Al Zubra manion to enter Al Sarfah soon , both are Leo mansions so connected to power struggles. In Al Zubra, the Mansion of the Manes, the image is a heavily armed warrior with a big lance riding on the back of a lion, no explanation required.

In the next mansion Al Sarfah the power is leaking away, according to its image the warrior is not riding the lion any more, but is on foot fighting a big dragon! In Al Zubra the key-words are prestige and charisma, in Al Sarfah separation and combat. So this shows that we will hear more from him , this may also have to with the many legal procedures that will be starting when Trump is an ordinary citizen again without presendential invioliability. Trump is gliding from the Back of the lion to its Tail which he can still pull very provocatively.  

In 452…

In our last post on this blog the transition of the Great Conjunctions into the Air element now and the same transition 800 years ago were compared. Then as now, there were very fast developments, a lot of international movements, a fundamental change in the power balance and many innovations in the field of knowledge. A climax in these changes were the invasions of the Mongols, united under Djenghiz Khan, they swept a like a thunder storm through many parts of Asia and they even occupied parts of Europe. Europe, the Occident, the land of matter (Earth)  was attacked by armies from the East when the time of Earth ended and Air times began.     

This is repeating itself now, though it is a virus from the East now that has stormed our borders and not an army. The virus is the climax in the transition to Air and it seems that the West is indeed more heavily afflicted by the virus than China, Corona is the instrument by which the US looses its leading position in the world, making room for the new power in the East. It is the same cycle unfolding and that is very impressive. But we can go even further back in time, as there is a comparable transition of the GC’s every 800 years and this brings us to the year 452 when after a long transit phase the GC’s also finally moved into Air. That is really astounding, because the same thing happened then.

Atilla, the Scourge of God

Of course, every school-child knows that then the (Western-)Roman Empire came to an end, although the Eastern part existed for another 1000 years. Now that is a shifting power-balance! The impulse that put an end to the Roman Empire also came from the East which is even more astounding. Again from the heart of Asia, it was Atilla the Hun, the Scourge of God, who pillaging stormed through Europa. Fearfully flying from the attacking Huns German tribes invaded the weakened Roman Empire. Under this pressure, it finally collapse , which was the beginning of a new world as for a very long time the Romans had been the stong dominating power. Empires, are like human beings however, they may seem very strong now but inevitably in the end they pass away.

The wheel of history, shown by the Great Conjunctions, will mercilessly go on turning. This gives us a majestic view of history by which also this time can be given its place, be understood and accepted. Of course, no modern historian would look at history in this way therefore their analyses are most often not very clear or inspiring. Once this was different and it is intriguing to read how astrology was common knowledge in days of yore, also among the Mongol tribes conquering whole continents 800 years ago.

Mongol Astrology

The story is that the birth of a great man was expected in 1186 when there was a conjunction of the seven planets in Libra, and that was the year Djenghiz Khan was born.  In 1226 the same Djenghiz Khan, after a life of great conquests, saw five planets “on a row” and feared that his end had come. In the middle of this conjunction was the GC of Saturn and Jupiter of 1226, indicating the final transition into the Air element. It is not known what exactly the Great Kahn thought or what his astrologers told him, but it seems there was a acute consciousness of the meaning of the GC cycle among the Mongols. The Great Khan turned out to have been right, he died the next year. Now that the GC’s had moved into Air , the acute tensions began to diminish, the Mongols who caused the crisis in the transition time to Air, began to loose impetus. History did not need them or Djenghiz Kahn any more and their role came to an end.   

In 1226…

And yes there it was, the famous Great Conjunction (“GC”) in the first degree of Aquarius, the “cause” of the Corona crisis, heralding Air times. It was fascinating to see that about which I had written and spoken so many times, really up there in the sky. Astrology happens out there, not only on your computer screen. Now that the GC has “perfected” we may expect a crisis peak and indeed strict measures have been imposed, there is a Corona mutation, the UK is isolated and a no-deal Brexit is a real possibility. Especially, the Western world is in trouble, China has control over Corona, without a vaccin. This is to be expected as a transition of the GC’s brings a new world power, so China will be better off than the US.

1226

It was 800 years ago that the same transition of the GC’s from Earth to Air took place on 12 March 1226. Then like now it was a transition period of 40 years, first after 200 years of Earth, in 1186 the  GC came to Libra (just like in 1980), in 1206 the GC went back to Earth (like in 2000) to enter the Air element finally in 1226 (just like now, and also in the first degrees of Aquarius). In the 200 Air years to follow, the Gothic Age flowered, churches soared upo into the Air, into the light, refined courtly culture developed, through Moorish Spain and Byzantium a lot of innovative knowledge streamed in. The Knights Templar, chased out off the Holy Land by the armies of Islam, created the first banking system, they became extremely rich and powerful and were destroyed dramatically. 

Mongol Riders

The transition, then as now, brought much international moving around, a shift in the power balance and innovations in the field of knowledge. The West as the land of matter (Earth) , the place where the Sun sets, came under fire now that Earth times weer over. One of the most dramatic events was the rise of the Mongol Empire. Then as now the danger came from the East, now in the form of a virus, then as an appearently unstoppable wave of superior Mongol armies, spreading over a large part of Asia, occupying even parts of Eastern Europe. This happened in the middle of the transition time (like 9/11) , like a storm they seemed to come from nowhere, the explanation can, of course, be found in the GC’s. You can say that the Blitzkrieg of the Mongol riders was Airy, the empire was founded in 1206 in the middle of the transition time by Djengiz Khan.    

Cathedrals

The Mongol Empire finally crumbled, but the power balance had shifted for ever. The situation now is comparable with the situation then, a lot of turbulence in the world and a crisis atmosphere. Of course, the (post)modern world is ruled just as much by the stars, but it is less conscious of this fact than ever, it narcistically sees itself as the factor “making history happen”.  It is all comparable but not the same. Just like then the GC falls in the first  degrees of Aquarius but there is a different star there now, because of the precession. So it is similar but nothing is repeated, there is no cycle of “etenal return.” Every moment is unique, because the divine creativity is inexhaustible, that is essence of the precession.

We are now in the middle of of it all, but looking back in history may work relativizing. Then many things were lost, but there were also new developments. Then too, people were very afraid of the invading Mongols but they did not last for long. The crusaders lost the Holy Land, but on the basis of the knowledge party gained there, the Gothic cathedrals could be built, that unsurpassed summit of medieval genius. It was an impulse lading to many developments, not only to losses. Certainly, Air time now will not only bring positive things, but there wil be room for good developments too, only this is difficult to see now in the middle of the crisis. These are the labour pains of Air. And now that we are leaving behind the last tense conjunction, things will slowly start to normalise.

(Ex?-)President Biden

First : now that The Great Conjunction of Saturn and Jupiter will take place soon (on 22 December) we can expect some climax in the crisis, In many Europan countries stricter Corona measures have been been imposed to control the second wave. In 2021 all the tense conjunctions of this year will be left behind, in The Netherlands the situation will finally normalise mid-March.

Biden’s fall?

This week the discussion of the predictions that can be done about Joe Biden’s presidency will be continued. Last week the lunar returns,that could be made on the basis of the expected inauguration time, were analysed and they indicated November 2021 as a very tense period. The question is now whether the tertiary directions calculated on the basis of this inauguration chart also show problems around that time. It will be assumed that the inauguration ceremony will take place as planned on 20 January at 12:00.

It is simple to make the tertiary directions by using the 1 day = 1 month key (with a month of 28 days, corresponding to the astronomical/astrological reality). To get the directive positions for October /November 2021 the January inauguration chart will have to be moved forward 9 or 10 days (=months), so recalculated for 29/30 January. The fast factors the Moon, the Part of Fortune (the Part of the Moon) , and the Part of the Sun should be clearly distinguished from the slow factors the Sun, the MC and the Asc. In analysing the three fast factors their movemement in a month (= 1 day) should be taken into account (about 13 degrees for the Moon).

To see the tertiary directed positions for October/November 2021 click on the download button above. The first thing striking the eye is of course that the Asc is on super-malefic Algol, entering the crisiszone ending on Aldebaran at 10 Gemini. However, this is not as dramatic as it seems because inaugurations take place in most cases at the same time and date in Washington, so every presidency has this direction in November in the year of the inauguration. Not automatically the same is the MC-Saturn conjunction by antiscion (mirrored position) in opposition with the Ascendant moving over Algol.In the inauguration chart Saturn is the all-important ruler of the tenth house.

The Liquidator

Another very important house ruler Venus /Lord 1 is moving over overwhelmig Pluto and fate star Terebellum which are placed on the MC in the inauguration chart. The Sun of leadership conjuncts Jupiter, in the inauguration Jupiter is Lord 8 of death and endings. The fast Part of Fortune moves over Antares the martially -red Heart of the Scorpion, indcating the end of a a cycle. The Part of the Sun, just as fast, is on the harsh South Scale, “The Liquidator” and will oppose the inauguration-Asc. The  Moon will be squaring the Asc/Desc-axis direction.

So the tertiary directions confirm Joe Biden will, have to deal with a very big problem (Will he fall ill or die?) in November. Another creative way of predicting are the month profections, counted from the first house of the inauguration chart (so the first house is for  20 January to 20 February, the second house for 20 February to 20 March etcetera) . In November the profection will arrive in the tenth house which has Pluto on the cusp. The conclusion that November 2021 will be very bad for Biden seems inevitable.

Joe Biden’s lunar returns

Over the past few weeks, we have taken a look at John F. Kennedy’s inauguration chart and also at the prediction methods applied to that chart, showing the developments  in the presidency month by month. For the relatively short duration of a presidency of 48 months the lunar returns and the tertiary directons (1 day = 1 month, months of 28 days) are the appropriate instruments. Not only did  JFK’ s inauguration chart clearly indicate the dramatic ending, by the lunar returns and the tertiary directions it could be predicted in which month fate would strike.

Some time ago on this blog Joe Biden ’s expected inaugration chart was discussed and it showed quite some tensions. Assuming that Biden’s  inauguration as the new US president will take place as planned on 20 January 12:00, it is possible to check by the lunar returns and tertiary directions derived from that chart, to see when these tensions will climax. So we will have to go through all the lunar returns and the first LR indicating big trouble,  is the one fallling on the fifth of May.

Beneficial Spica

The IC/MC-axis of this LR (not shown here)  made on the basis of the inauguration is reversed in relation to the “radix” ( radix = root, in this context the inauguration chart is the radix). Pluto is exactly on the IC, Venus /Lord 1 is on the the main star of the miserable Pleiads and has left her own sign, loosing a lot of power. The Sun of leaders is right on cusp 8 of death. That does not look very nice at all, although the Ascendant is on Spica the most beneficial and protective star in the heavens, so this is a powerful compensation for the problems indicated.

This May Lunar Return is not given here, because there is another LR drawing even more attention to itself the one falling on 20 October covering the largest part of November, click on the download button above  to view this lunar return.  In this LR too Pluto is on an angle but now it is right on the Ascendant! So this LR Asc conjuncts the “’radix” MC, the most problemtical radix-position is repeated on the most important point in the LR chart, the Ascendant! On the MC is the merciless royal South Scale, the cosmic bulldozer correcting any inbalance without respect for any person, no prisoners taken, this MC/IC-axis falls reversed over the radix Asc/Desc-axis. Uranus, the castration star and the ultimate reality check is on the IC and so in conjunction with the “radix”-Asc.

The South Scale or the Scoprion’s Claw – no prisoners taken

So the prediction is that Joe Biden will be confronted by some big problem in May which he will be able to solve. In November this (or other?) trouble will resurface and then he will nog get away with it. Next week we will take a look at what the tertiary directions have to say about this.  

JFK is Phaeton

Last week we discussed John F. Kennedy’s inauguration chart and how it was indicated that it all would end so dramatically. It was also shown that it is simply possible to make lunar returns on the basis of an inauguration chart to check the monthly developments in the presidency. JFK’s murder was clearly shown by the relevant lunar return. The time-scale of months is very approriate for a presidency which lasts for four years (48 months), therefore we could also use another prediction method on the months’ scale, the tertiary directions. Today we will apply these to Kennedy’s inauguration chart, next week we will investigate how this looks for Joe Biden’s inauguration in January.

1 Day = 1 Month

The tertiary directions work on the basis of a 1 day = 1 Month key, like the secundary progressions found by a 1 Day = 1 Year measure. In this calculation you will take the astronomical /astrological month of 28 days, not the conventional calendar month. In this way you get a calculation date for a chart showing the positions working out in a certain month, just like the seconday progressions only on a shorter time-scale. It is important to see clearly that this is the only thing progressions or directions show! The chart picture is not a chart, there is no such thing as a directed or progressed chart, there are only progressed or directed positions.    

To view the tertiary directions of the month JFK was murdered, click on the download  button above. It is good to realise that if you move the calculation date one day further, you will get the positions working out a month later. For one day is one month. The difference in speed of the  various directed factors is also be noticed, the Moon and the Parts of the Luminaries ( the Part of Fortune and Part of the Sun) are fast, in a day (= a month) they move about thirteen degrees, for the slow factors the  Sun, MC and Asc this is about one degree.

It strikes the eye that in the tertiary directions violent Mars has come back to its “radix” (inauguration, see last week’s post) position. Malefic Mars is in its fall so it will show ist nastiest side. The MC moves over the star Achernar associated with the fall of the solar chariot, steered of course by the president (in mythology by Phaeton). The Moon is on the very smart but violent Dog Star Procyon (Lee Harvey Oswald?) opposing directed Saturn (Lord 10 of the position) and Jupiter (Lord 8 of Death) placed on the star of fate Terebellum.

Phaeton’s fall

Al Natrah

The Part of the Moon (Part of Fortune)  is by antiscion on the MC of the job and it will be entering Sagittarius soon (the PoF moves 13 degrees a day), activating its ruler Jupiter Lord 8 of Death. The leader-Sun is moving over the South Node, symbolising exit. The indications are over-whelming and the  Arabic Mansions of the Moon seem to add relevant information here too. The Moon is moving from Aldira to Al Natrah, Aldira is ruled by Castor the dying brother (the Kennedy’s were very much a family) and Al Natrah is malefic Praesepe’s mansion, also know as “the Gap”!Next week we will look at Joe Biden’s inauguration chart in the same way.      

JFK

Last week we discussed Joe Biden’s inauguration chart, planned to take place on 20 January around noon (the usual time).This chart did not look too nice and this poses the question how previous inauguration charts showed what was going to happen. JF Kennedy’s presidency  is an obvious example, according to the data found on internet JFK’ s inauguration took place on 20 January (as usual), the precise time however was not 12:00 (as often) but 12:51. This produces the chart which can be viewed by clicking on the download-button below.

Striking the eye immediately is the Ascendant falling in the notorious crisis zone on the main star of the Pleiads, on Alcyone. The Pleiads are the Wheeping Sisters and there is not much positive to say about Alcyone, one of its key-words ia a violent death. As often in US inauguration charts Saturn is Lord 10 and it conjuncts Jupiter Lord 8 of death with a small orb of three degrees. With an even smaller orb Lord 8 sextiles Venus, as Lord 1 one of the most important hous rulers. Right on the MC Mercury is found, it is Lord 5 and the fifth house is the eighth derived from the tenth of the jobs, so the death of the job dominates the chart.  For every president there is always the real possibilty that he will have to leave before the end of his presidency, so we can see Lord 5 in this way.

Al Sad Al Abhiya

According to the Arabic lunar mansion system, the Moon is in Al Sad Al Abhiya, ruled by the Aquarius star Sadalmelek. The traditional texts on the Arabian mansions tend to be a bit veiled and seem to be quite corrupted but let it be clear that Sadalmelek is a very nasty star. Its key-words “extreme and sudden destruction” seem to be very appropriate  here. The ancient system of the 28 Arabian lunar mansions is based on the daily movement of the Moon to the background of the visible fixed stars. This fits the Moon as it especially symbolises earthly life. The Sun the other, higher Luminary stands for the heavenly and the divine, and it moves through an invisible so non-material zodiac.  

Part of Despair

The planet parts too contribute to the negative picture , the Mercury part (Asc – Part of Fortune + Pars Solis) is in opposition with Venus/ Lord 1. The Mercury part represents the essence of the planet’s energy, it is the  Part of Despair because here every connection with a higher dimension falls away, Mercury is the bare material fact and nothing more.

By checking the lunar returns calculated on the basis of the inauguration chart you can follow the presidency month by month and you can also see when  problems will arise. The lunar return before the murder on 22 November 1963 is crystal-clear (no picture given here). The Moon Lord 8 of Death in the lunar return is on the IC, Death Star Antares on the Ascendant, the nodal axis (entry / exit of life) on  the 2/8 (death) axis and star of fate Labrum, the poisoned Cup that will not pass you by on the MC!           

Tecumseh’s Curse

Donald Trump is still putting up fierce resistance, but it seems very unlikely that he will not have to leave the White House. The accusations of fraud and the legal procedures initiated by team Trump seem to serve another goal, mobilising supporters. When Trump will be ex-president, we will still hear from him and a group of loyal supporters who think they have been deceived would give him a firm basis to exert influence within and outside his party.

Maybe however, now that the Great Conjunctions (“GC’s) move into the Air signs definitively, the political seed-bed for Trump’s populism will slowly be exhausted. For it feeds on the resistance to the changes that the dawning Air times bring: globalisation, massive migration, the disappearance of the fossile industry, the end of indepedent nations and the shifting of the power centre to the East. The past twenty years have been tense and critical years of transition, the GC of 2000 fell in an Earth sign for the last time, in December this is really over.

The Curse

Maybe Trump should be glad, as in this way he will escape Tecumseh’s Curse. This allegedly was a curse spoken by a leader of the Indians Tecumseh (around 1812) that every president elected in a year that could be roundly divided by twenty would die in office. And this was what happened, until Ronald Reagan (1980) at least. Regan narrowly survived a murder attempt, as did G.W. Bush (2000), moreover Bush had to deal with  9/11. This suggests that astrology could partly explain the phenomenon, beause twenty years is the cycle of the GC’s and a new GC, always in a year which can be divided by twenty, will bring great changes.     

Tecumseh’s Curse?

So a president elected in such a year will have to deal with the political tensions caused by these changes. This could partly explain death by murder but not by illness. So it remains a bit mysterious, what is certain is that Joe Biden has been elected in a time of high political tensions and in a year on which Tecumseh’s Curse rests, although Reagan (1980) and Bush (2000) survived the curse. So does Biden, who is quite old, run a risk? The chart of his inauguration, the birth of his presidency, in January may shed some more light on this (click on the download button below).

Inaugurations

The day, place and time of the inaugurations are always the same, only the years are different, so these charts look a lot like each other. To spot the specific charateristics of a presidency, only those factors should be delineated not automatically in a position because of the fixed date, time and place.  This immediately looks very worrying as Pluto is right on the MC and this is not something you would like to see at all! The MC also falls on Terebellum, a star of fate, but this does not count as  this is always so.

Venus, very important als Lord 1 is by antsicion (position mirrrored in the Cancer/Capricon axis) on cusp 8 of death and  it is placed on Wega in the Falling Grype, hmmm. Saturn also very important as Lord 10  conjuncts Jupiter Lord 8 of Death in the tenth house. Saturn squares violent Mars in Taurus in deteriment, on the violent Ram’s Horn Hamal on castrating Uranus in the hidden twelfth house. Not nice at all. So would Tecumseh’s Curse strike again?     

Exit Donald Trump

As we predicted more than once in the past two years, Donald Trump will have to leave the White House. He has not been re-elected and this will be extra painful because it does not happen too often that a president in office has to go. This correct prediction was done by several techniques but one of the best, certainly if we have a choice between two candidates, is the delineation of the lunar return. The chart of the month you will not be re-elected, will look a bit painful. This was so in Trump’s case, in his lunar return the South Node (painful limitation) was conjunct the Moon (the people) on his Ascendant, he will loose the people’s favour.

But also other techniques indicated it is not a good time for Donald Trump. The direction of his MC is moving over the progressed Saturn in its detriment in Leo, painful limitation again. Trump’s Firdar ruler is much less promising than four years ago, then it was the expansive North Node conjuncting his Sun/ Lord 1 in the natal chart, now it is the limiting South Node conjunct the Moon in the natal chart. This Moon is part of a lunar eclipse, so in the Firdar the Luminary that will go out is emphasized.

The Scorpion’s Heart

It is most instructive to note that the direction of the MC in his opponent’s chart moves over Antares, the Death Star that ends cycles. Here you can see how important context is. Anatres is the grim Scorpion’s Heart, the beast that stings to death the successful arrogant Hunter Orion, who deems himself invincible. That there was such an Orion in this situation is clear and then the myth works out in this way. Biden became the Scorpion because Trump very convincingly took the Orion-role. All these predictions and delineations were made far before the elections, the first prediction of the loss of Donald Trump was published two years ago, when his opponent was not even known.  

Tertiary

There is still another method to make a prediction on a month scale, the tertiary directions working on the basis of a 1 day = 1 month key (so if you move your chart forward one day, you are a month later in real time). As is well-known, the key for secondary progressions is 1 day = 1 year, and the tertiary directions are interpreted in exactly the same way, but then only on a month’s scale. This looks for Trump like this, click on the download button below to view his current tertiary directions. Note welll that this is not a chart to be delineated, it only gives tertiary positions. For the technicians: in the calculations a month is seen as period of 28 days because this corresponds better with the astrological/astronomical reality than the calendar month.

It strikes the eye that the Asc is just changing  sign and this is something you don’t want to see if your name is Donald Trump! For everything should stay as it is, butthis movement will bring a change. The ruler of the sign the Asc is leaving behind is Mars, very very strong natally, the ruler of the next sign is Venus Lord 10 of the job in his radix. It is this Venus that is activated by the sign change, and in Trump’s  natal chart  Venus/ Lord 10 is conjunct Saturn in its detriment, not very nice at all. It also leaves behind the positive expansive North Node, his Part of Fortune moves over his natal Ascendant in opposition with the tertiary Mars, indicating the battle. The PoF leaves Leo, no more Sun stuff. The fact it is also moving over mighty Regulus cannot compensate for this, on Regulus there is always the danger that the king will fall  from his throne because he was pushing on too ruthlessly.     

Jupiter-Pluto

The Corona Horary

About a month ago on this blog as an exception, a horary chart was discussed (post of 26 September). In this horary the development of the Corona crisis in The Netherlands could be followed, but also the prediction was made that an improvement could be expected in early November. This is what we can see now, for days the number of reported new infections has not gone up and it is decreasing now.

In the horary this timing was shown by the Moon / Lord 1 (The Netherlands)  leaving its detriment in Capricorn. That is of course a considerable improvement, although the Moon in the horary still has 18 degrees to go through the shadows of the eighth house, so things will not be normalised overnight. For the many foreign readers of this blog, this is only so for The Netherlands! Everyone  should make a Corona horary for his own country, as there is so much difference. 

Attacks

Over the past days the news was dominated less by the US elections, as there was a series of terrorist attacks, two times in France and two days ago in Vienna. You can ask yourself if we can say something in general about this astrologically? The very tense situation in the world has to do with the cycles we gave attention to before, especially the Great Conjunctions of the chronocrators Saturn and Jupiter taking place in December, but also the conjunction of Pluto with the chronocrators. These Pluto conjunctions give a more detailed timing within the crisis situation. Saturn on Pluto in January indicated the start of the world-wide Corona crisis and now the third  Pluto-Jupiter conjunction of this year is almost full.

A conjunction is seen as a crisis moment in the cycle, as something new has to start and this cannot be but painful. It is striking that the Pluto-Jupiter cycle is aways associated with ecomic developments as Jupiter of course stands for wealth and growth. However, the cycle can also be connected  to terrorism as Jupiter is also convictions.  Both meanings seem to be very relevant at the moment. In a week Jupiter will perfect its conjunction with Pluto and this intensifies the frictions politicallly ( terrorism, very tense situation in the US) and economically (lockdowns). As we discussed before, after December the tensions will gradually decrease as we leave all the conjnctions of these important cycles behind.

Mercury

Today is election day in the US and  we will come back to this in the next post (Trump has claimed victory, but this is still uncertain) and the position of Mercury is striking. It is stationary so it can be expected it will all take more time, it is indeed the counting of the many votes which came in by mail that is very time-consuming.
