Some unscrupulous astrologers are using the COVID-19 crisis to terrify the public into believing that the apocalypse has come. However, it has been established throughout the medical and astrology communities that this is highly unlikely. It should not even be considered one of the world’s worst pandemics by the time it ends.
Astrology is a tool that establishes patterns which aid us in making predictions. Fear mongering should never be a part of our agenda, though panic does seem like a logical response to a worldwide pandemic.Read More »
1. The Tricky Placement of Jupiter in Capricorn
When the first case of the novel coronavirus was detected in Wuhan, China on December 1, 2019, Jupiter joined Saturn and Pluto in Capricorn. This was after residing in its home sign of Sagittarius for a little over a year.
Jupiter, the planet of international travel, may have even hastened the release of the hidden virus, ensuring it would make its way around the world.
2. The Virus Correlates to Many Heavenly Bodies
It has spread westward, not unlike the planet Saturn. It also spreads through respiratory droplets, many times on solid surfaces. This connects it to Saturn as well, as it is considered a “formite.”
That said, being that it is also spread through touch, it can be associated with Mercury. This planet also contributes to the dry cough, breathing issues, and high temperatures the virus is known for. Mars may also have a hand in this, too.
3. Saturn has been in Aquarius
On March 21, as everything started to get worse, Saturn began its three-year trek in the air sign of Aquarius. This means there was bound to be a game changer or two on Earth in the form of something pervading the atmosphere, such as an airborne virus.
Saturn also represents boundaries, and it is traveling through the sign that represents community and society. This strange combination has already reared its head in the form of social distancing.
4. A Rare Astrological Event in Late December
There is no real known date that marks exactly when the virus started, but a rare event did occur on December 26, 2019. Many astrologers believe this may have triggered the previously minor emergence to reach pandemic proportions.
On that day, we had a solar eclipse while five planets occupied Sagittarius simultaneously. Such events can breed political coups, natural disasters, and the unprecedented spread of diseases.
5. Saturn and Pluto Meeting Up
These two planets meet in different zodiac signs approximately every 35 years, and this usually signals recessions, financial overhauls, and fiscal ruin. It can even lead to war, as one conjunction signaled the beginning of World War I in 1918, but it usually marks economic change.
For example, their last conjunction was in November of 1982, marking the beginning of Reaganomics and the end of a small recession. Depending on your political opinion, this was either a good or a bad thing, but it certainly began a major change in financial policy.
This current conjunction could be the catalyst that sets the country on a path to financial ruin, or, it can strengthen us and lead us to greater prosperity than we had previously.
6. Air Travel will be Restricted until July
Following what we already said about Saturn being restrictive, it goes without saying that this is bound to have an effect on the flight business as the planet passes through air sign Aquarius until July 21st before returning in December, meaning we will literally have “air restrictions.” Also, don’t forget, Jupiter represents global travel and it is stuck in earth sign Capricorn until December as well, meaning we’ll have grounded flights.
This all adds up to fewer people than ever buying airline tickets for domestic travel. This means that, out of fear and precaution, many of us are more likely to take road trips in 2020.
7. Pluto and Jupiter are Traveling Close in 2020
Both planets are slow travelers, and each are traveling within significant degrees to one another this year. These planets meet about every 13 years. Pluto will search for an issue that needs our attention. If Mars or Pluto do not uncover anything important, the period remains stress-free and unremarkable. However, this time, conversely, this may mean that while Pluto uncovered this virus, Jupiter is spreading it.
This is grim news for older folks, which are ruled by Capricorn, the sign that both of these trouble-making planets are currently in. After all, an older person is known to be much more susceptible to losing his or her life to the potentially deadly virus.
That said, it has been said in the past that this is one conjunction that also brings prosperity. For example, both Mick Jagger and Bill Gates have it within their birth chart horoscope. And, for our current situation, this may mean a stronger world financially when the crisis finally recedes.
In conclusion, astrology may be used to trace the origins of the virus, and could possibly see where it is going. There were many signs out there, though some may have been a little too vague at the time to understand. Right now, we just need to look at what the skies are saying about our future and stay positive for tomorrow.
