Astrology for 2020 has shifted with truly rare outcomes. The oddities of our latest experiences usually occur when there are significant changes in our world. Here is a look into how the astrological influences are currently affecting the COVID-19 outbreak.
The Saturn- Pluto conjunction in Capricorn
The COVID-19 virus was identified in Wuhan, China, on the 31st of December. On this day, Saturn was at 21 degrees in Capricorn, and Pluto was at 22 degrees in Capricorn, and it was closing in during the time of this event. Saturn has a 29-year orbit, which means that there is only a Saturn and Pluto conjunction every 29 years, this makes for a very unusual event. When this happens, we experience considerable changes in our political structures, governments, and the economics of the world. The conjunction occurred from the 6th until the 14th of January. It was on the 11th of January that the World Health Organization received detailed information about the COVID-19 outbreak in China. Furthermore, China also shared the genetic sequence of the coronavirus on the 12th of January which marks the start of the effects of the Saturn- Pluto conjunction.
The purpose of the Saturn – Pluto conjunction is to enforce a rapid change in the mindsets of individuals and reshape the political structures. Over the last few decades, society has evolved to a point where people are ignoring their emotional and physical needs to follow a system. As humanity, we have been disregarding the needs of other humans and ourselves. Pluto and Saturn moving through Capricorn denote a time period where humanity is more focused on building their foundations, their structures, and their riches in life. It is a very “selfish” placement for these planets, and it resulted in a lot of narcissism in our world. Capricorn is a sign that focuses on personal growth and success, and it does not take into consideration the physical and emotional needs of others. During this time, we as a collective have become more focused on our own growth and personal success as opposed to considering what others need as well.
A lot of companies are attempting to profit off of the outbreak by pushing up their prices for essential items. Those doing this contribute with clear examples on how humans have evolved to disregard the needs of their fellow humans and only focus on profiting, this is a manifestation of the sign of Capricorn. This conjunction between Saturn and Pluto puts an end to specific individuals being able to profit off of others.
Those who individually focused on financial growth and profits and haven’t been considering the needs of others will be the ones to suffer the most during this time.
Saturn in Aquarius and the anaretic degree of Saturn in Capricorn
Aquarius is a sign of change and innovation, and Saturn is the planet that represents structure and foundations. Saturn entered the critical change of 29 degrees in Capricorn on the 9th of March. Each sign has 29 degrees, and when a planet moves through a sign, it is getting to know the energy of such. When a planet approaches the 29th degree, it is worn out in essence, as it has gone through every degree in the sign and exhausted its resources. With Saturn approaching and entering the 29th degree in Capricorn, one can expect significant breakdowns in the structures of the world. This shift is what shows the world and world leaders where they have been wrong. The economic system that has been built over the last few decades is now collapsing because humanity can no longer take the pressure. The majority of people are now working from home, whereas in the past few people were able to work from home. The corporate leaders and upper hierarchs now realize they cannot continue to enforce the structures onto people that they have been in the past. Things are now changing.
Saturn moved into Aquarius on the 22nd of March, this was when we started to see governmental structures setup to protect the people. South Africa’s president ruled a national lockdown on the 23rd of March. On the 22nd of March, Italy shut down all non-essential businesses, and Germany banned meetings with more than two people. Aquarius is a sign that represents oneness and brotherhood, and it also represents being there and looking out for your neighbor and community and considering the needs of others. From the 22nd of March, there are going to be significant changes in terms of how governments start considering the best interest of people as opposed to profiting and growing the economic system, which was what happened with Saturn moving through Capricorn.
Saturn is only going to be in Aquarius temporarily, it will return to Capricorn and the 29th degree on the 1st of July 2020, which will result in the political leaders having to relook at things yet again.
Uranus in Taurus
Uranus is currently in Taurus. Uranus is the planet that represents changes, wherever Uranus travels, you can expect radical change. Taurus is an earth sign that represents material resources and with Uranus moving into Taurus, there is going to be a rapid change in terms of how we go about getting our material resources. We aren’t going to continue getting these things the way we’re used to. We are going to think of new innovative ways to acquire the resources that we need and the next six years until 2026, while Uranus is in Taurus, we are going to reshape this. Most brick and mortar stores will suffer. Uranus is the planet of technology, if most businesses do not have an online option in this day and age, they are likely going to suffer during this Coronavirus pandemic.
Uranus in Taurus will put many people in an uncomfortable positions where they have to rethink how they go about obtaining their material resources and implementing technology and the internet into it. The last time Uranus was in Taurus was during the Great Depression from 1934 until 1941. At this time, we were also on the brink of World War Two and around this time, the world and society went through significant changes in its structures. When Uranus was last in Taurus, Roosevelt also implemented the Social Security Act. This act mandated that society takes care of people in need and that society doesn’t ignore the people that are in need. Uranus in Taurus this time around is going to trigger the same effect again, it will make us aware of those in need and how we can help. Uranus in Taurus will shake the ground out from under our feet, just so that we can figure out a new way to walk.
