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.  


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.     


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. 


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.


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.

Trump or Biden?

Next week on 3 November the Americans will vote and decide whether it is going to be Joe Biden or another four years of Donald Trump? On the national level it is clear, a majority of the Americans has seen enough of Trump, Biden is in the lead by about 10 %. However, this is not decisive, what is really important is how the separate states will vote and then mainly the “swing states, who will win there? In most of those states Biden is in the lead too, but the the differences are not too big and and te race certainly has not been decided yet.

There are many different ways to predict the outcome of an election, one of the best is delineating the lunar returns of the candidates under which the elections are held. Trump’s lunar return in force on 3 November looks worse than Biden’s, which would indicate Trump is not going to be re-elected. Another possibility is to take the chart of the day, calculated for the exact beginning of the astrological day, sun-rise in Washington. This shows what will happen in the US on that day. Of course, every day has such a chart, but this is a a very special day so it is a very special chart.

Looking back four years ago, when the elections were held on 8 November, this gives the chart above (click on the download button to be able to view it) . Of course, the general significator of kings is automatically on the Ascendant because of the technique we are using and everything that happens automatically in this way has no meaning. So the Sun on the Ascendnat does not mean the king (the Sun) will be strong this day. What is meaningful is the fact that the Sun is Lord 10 and Lord 10 stands for the powers that be. This is Barack Obama who could not be re-elected but we can see Hilary Clinton as his “successor”.

The Clinton/ Obama Sun is on the South Scale, the Scorpion’s Southern Claw that ruthlessly restores the balance. The Scorpion kills the arrogant hunter who deems herself invincible, I think Hilary Clinton could not have imagined that Trump would really win. What also strikes the eye, is the people’s Moon exactly on the IC in opposition with the MC of power and in negative reception with the Sun. So the people will get rid of the ruling elite, the king and his crown princess. Trump is Lord 4 Saturn, the opponent of those in power, by antiscion on Pluto.The Lord of Hades will strike unexpectedly and overwhelmingly, carrying away the price and so he did in 2016. The People-Moon loves Lord 4 Saturn, the challenger of the elite very much.

But how does it look next week? Trump is the king now and Lord 10 on the Ascendant which this time is not conjunct the South Scale. That is positive for him as he is now Orion. By antiscion however this Trump-Sun/Lord 10 in on the IC, the lowest point in the chart opposing the MC-throne. So the king will step down on 3 November. The Moon, the General Significator of the people, seems to confirm this, it is in the triplicity of Saturn, Lord 4 symbolising challenger Joe Biden. So they think he is a nice guy, whereas they are indifferent towards the Trump- Sun. The People-Moon is in the eighth house of death, showing they think it has been enough. Next week we will know.


The readers of this blog know it is dedicated to traditional astrology, which is based on the methods and techniques always used in the long history of astrology. This is a real history so not all astrologers applied exactly the same methods for twenty centuries. However, the principles always remained the same, till the theosophers at the end of the Nineteenth Century invented modern astrology which contains almost nothing of what astrology always was, it was mainly assembled out of theosophical novelties.     

However, this does not mean that every modern technique is nonsense by definition, everything should be judged by what it can do. In particular, the outer planets turn out to be useful also for the classical astrologer. It is true, their use should be correctly dosaged, but then they can give valuable information. This can clearly be seen in the timing of the Corona crisis. We are going from a 200-year Earth period to an Air period and that is why we have this crisis, it is a very important turning-point, a real “historical” moment.

Two dark guys

This is the wider framework given by the rhythm of the Great Conjunctions of Saturn and Jupiter going through the elements. Within that framework however, the cycle of the outer planets and especially their conjunctions with the chronocrators Saturn and Jupiter give a clear timing. For example, on 12 January this year there was a conjunction of Pluto and Saturn, two dark guys, and yes the Wuhan virus as it was still called then, broke loose on the world. This is very clear, but it is important to see these conjunctions as a timing instrument within the larger frame-work provided by the Great Conjuctions.

Six Conjunctions

For in the past hunderd years there have been six Saturn-Pluto conjunctions and they cannot all  be connected to a crisis of a comparable order. The rare threefold  conjunction in 1914-1915, indicates WW-1 of course but the 1947 and 1982 conjunctions are so clearly connected to a big crisis. Yes in 1947-1948 the state of Israel was founded in  a very bloody way but is this comparable with Corona or WW-1? The early 80’s were characterized by a recession, but this started in 1979 with the revolution in Iran. This is typically the pattern given by the rhythm of the Great Conjunctions (and Great Oppositions)  of Saturn and Jupiter, we have a crisis a year before these Great Conjunctions  place (in 1980 there was a Great Conjunction). However,  the 1982 Saturn-Pluto conjunction does indicate the effect of the crisis, so again within the broader framework of the Great Conjunctions.

Apart from this one Saturn-Pluto conjunction on 12 January, there are also two Pluto-Jupiter conjunctions on 5 April and 21 November which can be used for more exact timing. So we can expect that as from late November things will gradually turn up and after the Saturn-Jupiter conjunction on 21 December  we will leave the tense constellations behind. Of course things will not be normal overnight, but we may expect a gradual normalisation.      

Mrs President

In three weeks the presidential eelctions will be held in the US under bizarre circumstances. Corona, “the Chinese virus”, is not exactly under control and it seems this is going to cost Donald Trump his re-election. In the polls his not too charismatic rival is doing much better, even in the “swing states”’ that can make the difference. If Biden wins his candidate for the vice-presidency will become very important. Biden is, just like Donald Trump, old and if he would die, Kamala Harris would be the first female US president, a woman who is also of a mixed Tamil-Jamaican descent. 

Her natal chart can be viewed by clicking on the download button above and what strikes the eye immediately is the North Node on the Ascendant. The North Node is a kind of super-Jupiter, often giving a lot of succes, this is the Head of the Dragon that looks at the world, the Dragon is the life energy. A very powerful point and this Ascendant/ North Node conjunction falls on the star Al Hecka the Bull’s  Southern Horn, a purely martial star which can be very sharp and combative. Harris is a jurist and has quite a reputation asa  tough crime-fighter.   


But that’s it. The rest of the chart does not look very powerful, so why this career? Jupiter Lord 10 of the job is placed in the weak twelfth house on Algol, Jupiter can be associated with the juridical system, but it is not strong. The twelfth house is the house of crime and Algol has to do with cutting off evil’s ugly head, which is appropriate. Jupiter is also part of a T-square with Saturn and Mars providing  a way out off the weakening twelfth house, but we see no power here. On the MC Fomalhout is placed, the Mouth of the Fish a bright star indeed but not a royal star that “leads to the throne”. 

New Times


This could be the lady next door! But this only shows that good astrology will always use all the relevant methods. Succes can be indicated by strong stars, a powerful angular placement, an essentially very strong planet ( a big talent) but also by riding the waves of the spirit of the times. So there are several ways to become successful, and to see whether someone will be able to ride these waves several techniques can be applied. One of them is the synastry with the chart of the eclips, preceding the birth calculated for the place of birth.    


If you look at that, it is clear. So clear and simple that we will not give the chart of this prenatal eclipse here. The angles of the natal chart and the angles of the eclipse chart are alsmost exactly the same, the difference is less than ten minutes of arc. This is only seldom seen, her individual energy expresses the spirit of the times perfectly and these waves carry her to a high function. A woman of Tamil-Jamaican descent as (vice)-president surely fits in with a time spirit of Me Too and Black Lifes Matter.


Last Saturday Jan des Bouvrie died, the well-known interior designer who changed Dutch living-rooms. It was his mission to acquaint everybody with modern design and he certainly succeeded in this mission. He influenced interior design in The Netherlands and abroad thoroughly and he inspired a whole generation of young design professionals. Some may have found a bit too sure of himself but het was extremely successful, also because he knew very well how to promote himself.

One of his most striking style characteristics is white colour. “White is space, light and liberation”, he always said, his strong preference for this colour was often explained by the fact he had to sleep in a room without windows a a boy. His youth experience has had a strong effect, even now many Dutch paint their rooms very white. So it would very interesting to take a look at his chart, unfortunately no time of birth is known.

Moon in exaltation

However, this does not stop the astrologer, a chart calculated for his birth date with the Sun on the Ascendant or on the MC can provide some relevant information. Traditionall , a new day begins at sun-rise, Sun on the Ascendant gives us a chart for the day and for everybody born on this day. Click on the download button below to view Des Bouvrie’s Sun-rise chart.

 You have to be a bit careful however, as the way dates are given in these modern times is non-astrological. In the modernsystem the new day starts at mid-night and all the children born in the 24 hours after that will have that date registered as their birth-day. In astrology the new day begins at dawn and the chart for that day with Sun on the Asc says something about that day and everbody born then. But people born between mid-night and sun-rise will not fall under the sun-rise chart of their birth day but under the chart of the preceding day! There is no birth time for Des Bouvrie, we have assumed he was born after sun-rise.

The White Planet

This seems to work quite well. Lost of strengths could be expected and we are not disappointed. Striking the eye immediately is the Moon, that has just entered its exaltation, the emotion and home planet feels wonderful and ony wants to stay exalted as long as it can. This describes the sometimes exxaggerated white preference, the Moon is in a jubilant mood, entering its exaltation indeed feels like a liberation. Planets that have just changed sign or are about to change sign always indicate a special intensive motive.


Of course the Sun’s position on the Asc is not delineated as it is automatically there if this technique is applied, but this is not so for Mercury. Mercury is cazimi, in the heart of the Sun conjunct within 17 minutes arc and this makes a planet unstoppable.  He knew how to use the media to promote himself very effectively, Mercury is the media planet. Des Bouvrie popped up so often (cazimi!) that a  lot of jokes were made about his love for the media. “’Helllooo, here we are again”’ became a well-known expression for media-prone people like him. He did not care, he only became more well-known with more customers as a result.

But there is more, the prominent exalted lunar White is in very strong reception by domicile with esthetic Venus. Venus is conjunct the very bright star Sirius and an exalted Jupiter planet of expansion and modernity, which helps a lot. It made him a bright star. Finally, Saturn is in on Aldebaran the powerful royal spring star of successful beginnings and wealth, the cube (Saturn) couch was his break-through. So even without a birth-time as relevant  chart can be made, and prediction techniques seem to work just as well…  

The Cube Couch


Nations United?

Last week the United Nations could celebrate their 75th birthday and the Dutch king made a speech about the wonderful work of “the men and women’’ in the UN. That was very nice but the question  is, was the king justified in speaking in such a positive way about it? Is the UN really  this nice organisation that will bring health, prosperity and peace to the world?


The Dutch still remember very well the drama in Sebrenica during the Bosnian wars. Because of the cowardice and incompetence of the UN, our soldiers had to deal with an impossible and extremely dangerous situation and psychopath Ratko Mladic could murder 8000 Bosnian muslim men. No one in the UN ever took responsibility, the soldiers involved had to deal with psychological problems for years and were mocked and shamed!

Worls Gates Organisation

Also now in the Corona crisis the UN’s World Health Organisation WHO plays a role of importance, but the WHO is partly financed by the pharmaceutical industry and Bill Gates. The Ethiopian WHO boss came from  Gates’ network but the UN again looks away from the problem, so we may expect some weak  and very problematic position in the UN chart.

UN radix    

The UN was born on 24 October 1945 in San Francisco, for this date the chart above was calculated (click on the download button). The time is midnight as juridically the UN started to function then. Such a de jure chart is not ideal, although it seems to give adequate results in the progressions, so we can accept it. Immediately the sugary UN image crumbles, the Lord of Hades is right on the Ascendant and yes the UN is the arena of merciless manipulations and raw deadly power struggles as the Sebrenica drama has shown.

Lord 10 of public activity is Venus, strong in her Libra domicile, not bad for an organisation working for peace. Unfortunately, Venus conjuncts chaotic Neptune diminishing its effectivity. Maybe it is not totally honest to call the UN a “toothless tiger”, but effective action is not really their thing. These well-known soldiers with their blue helmets are an impossible ”UN army”, they cannot fight  themselves, they are supposed to stop others from fighting.

Our Queen at the UN

Lame Mars

Astrologically , so essentially this is very problematic. Mars is the army and it is supposed to fight, that is Mars’ nature. If you deploy soldiers for peace-keeping you go against Mars’ essence and you rob it from its power, you lame it. This can be clearly seen in the UN’s chart, Mars is in its fall in Cancer in the weakening twelfth house of self-destruction, a lame Mars wearing a blue helmet. This very weak Mars is also conjunct Saturn in its detriment, Saturn is good at calming down others but not if it is placed  in its detriment. This conjunction is on two powerful stars, Procyon and Pollux, but this cannot compensate for the dangerous weakness of Saturn and Mars.

Here the Sebrenica drama can be seen, the UN sent in soldiers not equipped or allowed to fight (Mars in fall)  and when it went wrong they left everybody to their own devices (twelfth house). The UN is in need of an astrologer, it seems. Or better still:  liquidate it now and start again under good stars!   

Corona – When will it be over?

On this blog we mainly discuss natal charts and mundane charts, horary and medical astrology are not given too much attention. However, now that in The Netherlands the number of confirmed Corona infections is going up and stricter measures are being considered again, it may be interesting to take a look at a horary. This concerns the chart of a question I asked myself in mid-April when the crisis peaked here. Click on the download button below to view the chart.

I asked his question as a Dutchman about my own country so it could also be formulated like this: how will things develop in Holland, when will thing get better for us here? So the answer and the prediction the chart gives will be valid for The Netherlands, not for the rest of the world. The reality is the we are not one world at all, for example China does not have too many infections any more, Taiwan did not have any problems at all, but India is in big trouble. So the horary will say nothing about that, it pertains to The Netherlands.    

South Node Lockdown

Cancer is on the Ascendant so the ruler of Cancer the Moon indicates the Corona situation in The Netherlands. Appropriately enough, the Moon is placed in the sixth house of illness and five degrees back it has entered its detriment in Capricorn. It shows that the circumstances in Holland have worsened recently which is confirmed by the conjunction the Holland – Moon  made with the South Node, always strongly limiting and reducing. This indicates the lockdown, so the horary clearly shows the situation and also what has  happened lately. However, the most interesting thing is of course what is going to happen, to see this you will have to follow the Moon as it continues its way through the zodiac.

As you can see the Moon will pass over the descendant and leave the sixth house of illness behind seven degrees further. In this context a degree would represent a week, so seven weeks after the questions was asked, some improvements may be expected, indeed mid-June the strictest lockdown measures were lifted. By leaving the illness house behind, the country freed itself at least partly from the Corona embrace.

Neverheless, the Moon (Holland) is still in its detriment in Capricorn and in the last part of Capricorn we can see dark thunder clouds gathering. There is a conjunction awaiting us, around the 25th degree, of Pluto and Jupiter, Pluto the dark lord of Hades can strike suddenly and overwhelmingly, Jupiter is in its fall, so it will manifest its worst sides. In Capricorn Jupiter is also placed in the sign where the Moon has its detriment, which means Jupiter will harm the Moon very much, this is a negative reception.

Aquarian light

There is a twenty-degree distance from the Moon to this malefic conjunction so after twenty weeks, five months after asking the question a worsening may be expected, this is mid-September, we are in the middle of this now. I predicted this on the basis of this chart in my last webinar on horary astrology when this “second wave” had not yet shown itself.  Of course, the Moon will also finally pass over this conjunction,a fter which it will approach the sign boundary with Aquarius, light at the end of the long Capricon tunnel!  Entering Aquarius the Holland -Moon leaves its detriment behind and then the Corona crisis will be over. The distance beween the Moon and the Capricorn/Aquarius boundary is 25 degrees, so 25 weeks, a bit more than six months. Starting from mid-April this means there will be  a huge improvement in late October.   

Algol TikTok

American president Donald Trump is attacking the video app TikTok. TikTok is an extremely popular app on which very short videos can be shared, often singing or dancing adolescents or recordings meant to make you laugh. However, TikTok has in the past few months become one of the most popular app’s in the world and there are many more users now than only adolescents. Trump accuses TikTok of abusing its users’ data and has made them a proposal they can’t refuse, either they will sell their activities in the US to an American company or they are history.

Such a dramatic development should be visible in TikTok’s chart, but how could we get TikTok’s birth data? The TikTok app in its current very succesfull form was created by joining together three other existing app’s  and this happened on 2 August 2018, so we have a reliable date but how do we get a time (place is Bejing, where ByteDance, TikTok’s mother company is located)? We may assume that the new app was available from midnight (Chinese time in Bejing), this leads to this natal chart which can be seen by clicking on the download button above.

Undertaker energy

There are two things in this chart striking the eye immediately, Algol on the Ascendant and the South Node on the MC, this is no “middle of the road” chart. Crisis star Algol is certainly not only bad for success, mythologically it is connected to the Gorgone Medusa, not only a repulsive monster with snakes as hairs, but also an irresistably attactive woman. Face to face with Medusa, people will loose their heads and be drawn along by their most basic instincts and this is of course very good for success. Donald Tump himself has Algol on his MC.

On the TikTok MC the South Node is found, a very limiting Saturn-like energy, this seems not to be good for mega popularity!But even the South Node is not always just simply negative, it is also the exit gate out off life, so for an undertaker for example it would not be bad and this is the same for TikTok. It is the extreme limitation of the duration of the recordings of only 15 seconds and often even less, that “expresses or “uses”’ the South Node energy. It is on the edge of nothing. You are allowed to draw attention to your ego as long as a short-winded gasp and then it is over, the postmodern attitude in a nut-shell.

Praesepe splinters

Mars is near the MC on powerful first magnitude Altair, not too bad for success, the Sun conjuncts the expansive North Node and is located in the Praesepe nebula. Praesepe is connected to the story of Hercules crushing the Crab into thousands of pieces and this describes exactly the TikTok video splinters. The progressions clearly show why  they have to deal with a belligerent Donald Trump now, the MC is exactly on the South Node and then sacrifices have to be made. TikTok does not have the option to express the South Node and make its videos even shorter as it would then reduce to nothing and disappear like a moth in cyberspace.                      

Cazimi Saturn

It was very tragic that last month the former king Juan Carlos, father of the current Spanish king, had to leave his country because there was yet another scandal caused by his uncareful way of life. The past few years there were again and again problems around the former king and too much damage was done to the reputation of the Spanish royal family. Juan Carlos, the national hero who played a crucial role in transforming Spain from a fascist dictature into a modern democracy, was forced into exile and nothing has been heard from him since, it is not even known where he lives now.

Juan Carlos and Franco

Such a tragic fall of a hero should be clearly visible in the developments in the former king’s chart. Very unfortunately, royal families do not respect the ancient tradition and do not have Court Astrologers any more, if they did they would be able to prepare themselves better for the unavoidable scandals and crises. A short glance at Juan Carlos’ progressions reveals the upcoming crisis which does not mean it could have been avoided completely, but it is always better to know what is coming towards you. His natal chart (5 January 1938, 13:15 Rome, Asc 19.44 Taurus) will not be discussed now, we will take a look at his progressions, click on the download button below to be able to view them (and remember there is no such thing as a progressed chart, only progressed positions!).

It is immediately clear that it would be a good idea to be extra careful this year. The primary direction of the Ascendant (as the angles do not make secundary movements, there is no such thing as a progressed Asc)  is moving over Praesepe, the Empty Crib, one of the most powerful crisis stars, a  kind of “second Algol”. With the Empty Crib activated the message  is not to let your desires guide you but to firmly do the correct thing, an effective recipe against scandals. If you do not firmly take the right action there is a considerable chance a chaotic situation may develop, in this context of  scandal after scandal, this is a serious warning.


This is confirmed by a very special progressed position, a cazimi Saturn. Cazimi means “in the heart of the Sun”and this makes the cazimi planet unstoppable. This is not always positive as it depends on the condition and nature  of the cazimi planet. Here it is Saturn in its fall in Aries , and Saturn is Lord 10 of the position in society in the natal chart, so this gives an almost literal picture of what happened, his fall could not be stopped any more. Mercury moving over Al Pherg, a star of fate, confirms he is approaching a painful breaking-point, with an activated Al Pherg you have to let go of something you are very attached to, in order to be able to go on.

In the natal chart Venus is Lord 1 placed on 7.25 Capricorn and the progressed Part of Fortune (composed of the directed Asc and the secondary progressions of the Sun and the  Moon) is in opposition with Lord 1. The Part of Fortune is the planet part of the Moon and one of the meanings of the Moon is the people, so Juan Carlos and the people go their different ways. This is repeated by the progressed Moon opposing the progressed part of the Sun  (=royalty).


It is crucial to keep the speeds of the progressed factors in mind, the fast factors the Moon, the Part of Fortune and the part of the Sun move one degree per month so it is possible to give a more detailed timing by them than by  the slow factors the Sun, the MC and  the Asc moving about one degree per year.
