With all the uncertainty going around with the economy and the American U.S government and its record breaking longest shut down.
It’s not really that much of a surprise with the Sun in the sign of Capricorn which rules the 10th house of governments to such close proximity to the planets Mercury, Pluto, Saturn and Ketu/South Node. In Western astrology this is happening on the Leo/Aquarius Axis at 0 degrees.
So both signs still apply here. It’s just the sidereal chart looks more understandable to me, of what is happening on a fundamental level.
You have Neptune in Aquarius making a positive aspect to a difficult group of conglomerates, wanting a deep seated change. While Mars and Uranus both square up to them.
Alternatively, you have Jupiter Conjunct Venus doing the exact opposite, as they are making hard aspects to Neptune and a fairly nice one to Mars. So what does all that leave us with?
Well considering Uranus which is ruled by Aquarius is in Aries, the sign ruled by Mars and Mars is with Chiron in Pisces, Scorpio’s ruler. There is a lot to consider here. As far as positive aspects go, we are looking at a few yogas, as each signs ruling planet is in the other’s sign. Since we also have Jupiter the ruler of Pisces in the sign of Scorpio.
It’s funny because in tropical astrology, all the planets are currently in their home sign.
Honestly, this event is something we as astrologers have seen coming for a long time ago, since every Eclipse over the past year of 2018 has dealt with these same aspects and issues. Mostly to do with the potential economic collapse of current political systems and structures.
In the past when these difficult situations occurred they were hedged by investing in precious metals such as gold and silver, now we would be more inclined to look into the potential that comes from investigating in different Blockchains and blockchain technologies under the umbrellas of Bitcoin & Ethereum.
Seeing as Jupiter is Conjunct Venus in the Nakshatra of Jyesha the symbol known for the umbrella, as well as being the eldest of all the 27 lunar mansions in Vedic astrology. This is definitely one of the most important aspects to look at when moving forward. Since even though it’s making a positive aspect to Mars it’s ruler, Mars is at 18 degrees which is known to be a difficult place not to mention the fact that it’s in a square with the Eclipse and planets.
I foresee a difficult road ahead for the Economy if it continues to keep putiting all its eggs in one basket ( that of the old system) If on the other hand it chooses to diversify and encompass a multitude and varied set of values to invest in. Then i see a completely different story unfolding, and one with a bright outcome, in the end. Despite all the uncertainty of the current time.
