okay so it’s about time for an astrology post about the coronavirus.
this post is going to be divided in two parts: analysis of the transits during the development of covid 19 so far and some lame ass prognostics based on future transits. don’t take it too seriously or base anything you do on what you read, i’m just curious if i’m gonna be right.
analysis of the transits so far:
• november 17th 2019: first case of covid 19 was detected.
at the time, saturn and pluto were already approaching each other and are in orb for a conjunction with saturn at 16 degrees capricorn and pluto at 21.
i’m going to discuss the symbolism of this conj in the next date on the list. saturn is opposing north node in cancer
- difficulties, obstacles and pestilence are directly interfering with our fate and the feeling of comfort it might bring. another aspect worth exploring at the time is mars sextile jupiter opposition uranus in taurus
- there’s a green light for any sudden outbursts and accidents that can injure us physically and this might happen on a global scale in a way that is related to nature. we also have jupiter square chiron
- from my experience with reading natal charts, harsh aspects between chiron and jupiter usually indicate an expansion of pain, a good environment for hurtful things to happen. the sun is trine chiron and sextile pluto
which makes those two Bringers of Misery (and healing) even stronger.• january 13th 2020
: technically the noise around coronavirus started on the last day of 2019 when the world health organization was informed about as many as 44 patients that have an unknown type of pneumonia in Wuhan, China. but things became more clear around 11-12th when there was more info on how the disease started and was spread and when the new type of coronavirus was publicly identified and its genetic sequence was shared with other countries so they can use it for developing diagnostic kits. around that date, other countries started reporting cases of the virus. so i think it’s safe to say that’s when shit started getting serious.
now, as all respectful astro geeks know, january the 13th is when the infamous saturn/pluto/sun/mercury conjunction
took place. in motherfucking capricorn. let’s talk about what this means. now we all know saturn conjunction pluto has been an indicator for earth-shaking disasters throughout the centuries. before pluto was discovered - meaning until less than 100 hundred years ago, saturn was the official daddy of death and dark stuffs. saturn is also the symbol of lead in alchemy; lead is the base matter (prima materia), the shit that one has to turn into gold. it’s the primitive chaos we all need to tame and work on in order to have good things and live an honorable life. saturn is also associated with pestilence - i was reading a book about the role of pestilence in medieval english literature by brion lee grigsby recently and i think it will be useful to share some quotes i found in it: “No one was quite sure what Saturn had or did, but most experts felt that its combination with anything was bad” (Gottfried, Black Death, 111)
- imagine what it indicates when it’s in its own sign of rulership and is combined with pluto, an archetype mostly associated with transformation on a LARGE scale and death. “In the Knight’s Tale, Saturn states to his daughter Venus "My lookyng is the fader of pestilence”. Since Chaucer was the first person to translate astrological work into the vernacular, namely “A treatise on the Astrolabe”, we can assume that he was knowledgeable of contemporary astrological learning. Therefore, on the authority of Chaucer, we learn that Saturn foretold the coming of pestilence.“
need i say more? many modern astrologers have forgotten saturn’s correlation to pandemics but it’s there and it’s twice as intense when it’s combined with pluto. and any planet in capricorn is bound to affect society and the social order, especially when it comes to economics and finances (which are deeply disturbed by the coronavirus crisis).
let’s see what else have we got during this significant conjunction: oh yes, the sun and mercury have joined it too, putting into light the hidden energies of pluto and saturn and making them affect our communication on a global scale (that’s when it was publicly announced that the new virus exists and is spreading and people started talking about it). jupiter is in capricorn too making the abundance of capricorn energy even more intense. but it’s nothing compared to what’s coming when jupiter joins pluto and saturn in the conjunction. mars is trine chiron and square venus
, making this a good time for wounds and illnesses on the physical body.
• march 11th 2020:
that’s the last date in the past that i’m going to look into. shit has been getting progressively more and more real as jupiter was approaching saturn and pluto
. and yeah, jupiter is playing a larger role in this than one might think. in general, the jupiter archetype is one of the most misunderstood ones in modern astrology. it’s portrayed as some fat clown that’s constantly dropping bags of luck and fortune on people while simultaneously drinking wine from a jug and screaming obscenities. jupiter is not about fortune, jupiter is about the abundance that leads to inevitable decay. jupiter is about being stuffed until you burst open as opposed to saturn that’s about being so thin you’re almost gone and having to train mercilessly to gain some muscle.
let’s look at the transits when the pandemic was announced: we got a wide conjunction between jupiter on 21, pluto on 24 and saturn on 29 degrees capricorn.
bitchez are getting closer as they’re dancing with death. jupiter is expanding the effect of the saturn (pestillence) conjunct pluto (large scale transformation). but that’s not the most significant change in transits that happened between january 13th and march 11th. let’s look at mars but first, it’s time for some more quotes from my cryptic book."Doctors believe that the alignment of Jupiter, a warm and moist planet, and Mars, a hot and dry planet, were the root cause of pestilence. When this alignment occurred, Mars ignited the excessive moisture from Jupiter and these rays rained down on the earth thus affecting the miasma. However, Saturn also figured into this portent, as he does in Piers Plowman.”
AND ALSO, as Geoffrey de Meaux said all those years ago,“I do not wish to imply that the mortality comes only from Saturn and Jupiter but rather through Mars, which was mixed with them at the time of eclipse.” (Horrox 171)
by the time coronavirus was infecting and killing too many people, mars is conjunct jupiter
with a 5 degrees orb. so when the pestilence was rising, the conjunction was mad tight. seems like these old dogs were kinda right, weren’t they? we also have chiron square north node with like a 0° 0’ orb
- the archetypes of karmic fate and pain/wounds are clashing hard.
another aspect that shouldn’t be overlooked is sun cojunction neptune in pisces
. this whole thing is unfolding when neptune is in its own sign and is very strong. this indicates the strong panic and misinformation going on rn and how people, even now, are not quite sure whether this whole pandemic thing isn’t just a hoax, an illusion, and are living their lives as if nothing’s happening - or panicking so hard as if the world is coming to an end.
anyway this got super long as it is so i’m moving to the second part with the prognosis and i’m gonna keep it short there.
some lame ass prognostics:
• 4th of april 2020
is when the first jupiter/pluto conjunction
occurrs for the year. yeah, first out of three. so what i expect is the virus and the repercussions it has on our economic system and our lives to vary between those three conjunctions, intensifying as the tightest aspect is approached. i expect the number of infected and dead people to rise until the 4th of april. also can i just say the number 44 has been haunting me for so long and i’ve noticed it’s an indicator of something bad and in many cultures, 4 signifies death and lack of movement…
jupiter intensifies and spreads the power of plutonic transformation and destruction. meanwhile saturn has already moved into aquarius which signifies a large shift in our social and financial structure. jobs will be lost, companies will go bankrupt, more and more jobs will be reshaped so they can be done online and from home (after all aquarius is connected to technology advancement). expect chaos and sudden changes. we have mercury conjunction neptune
so expect even more misinformation surrounding what’s going on with the spreading of the virus and the inevitable recession. the media will vomit the illusions generated by the government to keep the people desensitized. north node is still square chiron
. mars is square uranus and conjunct saturn tightly
- abrupt and unpredictable physical harm in the shape of pestilence.
from then on i expect a decline in the spreading of the virus. jupiter and pluto are moving further apart and things won’t happen so intensely tho people would still get ill and suffer. the cases will begin rising again around the middle of june.
• 30th of june 2020
is when the second jupiter/pluto conjunction
occurs. both planets are moving retrograde along with saturn, neptune and mercury
. i suppose the second wave would be caused by people not taking the safety measures seriously anymore and traveling to the seaside for the holidays when it’s being advised against. we would need to revisit the situation from march and implement the same measures again, repeating the exact same thing. sun is conjunct mercury
so there will be a more clear representation of what is happening and people won’t be acting like lost sheep anymore. we have mars square north node
which means our physical activities and drive to do stuff will clash with our karmic fate.
• 12th of november 2020
is when the third jupiter/pluto conjunction
happens. and mind you, at 22 degrees capricorn - just like the saturn/pluto conjunction from january the 13th
. what does that mean? well, the cycle is being closed. i believe this is when we’re going to be hit the hardest by the recession and understand the consequences of the class war that this virus has largely revealed to us in more vivid colours. rich people are going to survive this pestilence and ride the wave to exploit the working class even better now that people are largely losing their jobs and struggling to keep up with their payments. of course, this largely depends on what kind of actions is the government taking to protect its people and if the people are letting it treat them poorly. venus is harshly aspected - an opposition with mars, a square with pluto and jupiter
…people will struggle with upholding their values and will be forced to revise them, for better or for worse. we also have neptune square north node
which means there will be no clarity about where we’re headed and we will be spoonfed lies and illusions about our future.
• 21st of december 2020
. THE FINAL MFKING TRANSIT. okay this one is important. we have the JUPITER CONJUNCT SATURN
transit here. for those of you who haven’t heard, that’s one of the most important aspects ever. it’s known as “the great conjunction”
and it occurs like every 20 years. it signifies the transition between death and birth, ripeness and decay. that’s that one rare moment where expansion and restriction melt together and create a sparkle, something new but ancient, something that binds together past and future…something eternal. people born with that conjunction in their chart are usually complex mfs who either break down under the weight of trying to combine those two polarities together or create something extremely enduring and fortunate. people born with an inconjunction of jupiter and saturn like me are miserable fools tho lmao.
anyway so that conjunction happens in the very first degree of aquarius
- right on the 0. this is the beginning of the cycle, like…an intro into the new age of aquarius
, if you will (even if we’re far from it actually). that’s when the virus will be gone for good and we would have to combine the expansive vision of jupiter with the good parts of the structure and discipline saturn has taught us over the years. we have sun conjunct mercury in capricorn at 0 degrees
so this is a time when hard work has to be put into rational thinking and building up structures. mars is square pluto
- there is violence in the air, people are on edge. neptune is still square north node,
making our future blurry. but the pandemic will be over.
now delving a bit more into the numerology
of things i gotta say i’m loving the sequence between the dates: first we have the 4.4
, then the 30.6
, then 12.11
…and the great conjunction happens at 0
degrees and we have another major conjunction on the same date again at 0
degrees! so we’re basically moving from 4 backward to the new start of zero. and then the new year begins lmfao. i’m gonna talk about the date 21.12.2020
and its meaning in numerology in another post if i ever get to it but let me finish this one with a friendly reminder:
the planets don’t necessarily show what’s going to happen. often they’re indicators of energies people take advantage of, especially people in power, in order to control how things are happening. they don’t show us the impending future. they are simple indicators of the cyclic nature of life and if we don’t make use of these cycles, someone else will - and it might be at our own expense.
stay safe y'all! and try to stay home during the pandemic
