2020 US Election – the Astrological Perspective
The 2020 US Election – An Astrological Perspective
In the midst of an impeachment process and ongoing campaign for a Democratic nominee, a lot of water will run under the bridge before we really know who is actually running. However, we can take this new year opportunity to glance at some of the astrological favourites for the elections.
First let us examine what are the most prominent and decisive astrological alignments that will be the important activators for the election process:
Saturn/Pluto in Each House
Saturn/Pluto conjunction in EACH HOUSE
The long-anticipated Saturn/Pluto conjunction at 22°Capricorn is exact on January 12, 2020, but its influence will remain at least for the whole year, and possibly define the decades to come. A brief study of past experiences with this synodic cycle reveals its transformative caliber of colossal proportions! Pluto/Saturn cycles create the narrative for history in the making. It has destroyed empires, reversed fortunes, redrawn world maps, shaken the earth, and brought in pandemics and plagues, to name some of the prominent challenges brought upon humanity.
let us examine how they may affect us more personally. How will the Saturn/Pluto conjunction, later to be joined by Jupiter, influence our charts by house placement?
JUPITER in CAPRICORN – Dec 2, 2019 – Dec 19, 2020
Jupiter in Capricorn – Dec 2019 to Dec 2020
Jupiter begins its journey into Capricorn on December 2nd, the start of a seemingly tempestuous ride through the rugged terrain of Capricorn peaks and abysses. The reason this transit will be particularly dramatic is in anticipation for the meeting with karmic titans, Saturn and Pluto.
Asteroid HYGEIA – Health and Healing in the Chart
While significant bodies of knowledge about Medical Astrology are available, I would like to explore in this article the particular influence of the Asteroid Hygeia and her role in both “afflictions,” recovery, and in healers or doctors.
Same Chart – Different Souls: The Astrology of Twins
People born at the same time and place, with the same chart, whether biological twins, or astrological twins, should have the same personality traits and life course.
The answer to this argument is not straightforward. The answer is both ‘yes’ and ‘no.’
Individuals born with the same chart – a phenomenon that can only occur if they are born the exact place and time – will, on the one hand, share many similar tendencies and parallel life circumstances. We do hear about related stories, such as the twin sisters who both gave birth on the same day in 2012.

And the transits for the year 2020
(Expanded from the article originally published in the Dec 2015 edition of The Mountain Astrologer)
In astrology, every moment matters. The cosmic clock ticking, as planets (and luminaries) pursue their motion and form celestial patterns, provides a flavor, a meaning, or a message for each passing minute or for a whole epoch. We ourselves are the embodiment of the moment of our birth; as such, each one of us represents a moment in time. In other words, each fraction of time has a purpose.
Dwarf Planets – Eris, Haumea, and Makemake
Introduction to the Astrological meanings of Eris, Haumea, and Makemake
With the publication of this article, June Solstice 2016 – Dwarf Planets Ceres and Eris are conjunct at 23 Aries, next to Uranus, and opposing Haumea at 22 Libra. Perhaps, this an opportune time to further discuss the presence of these mysterious bodies and stimulate interest for further research.
An important Note:
With most of the Dwarf Planets and contenders being only recently discovered (Haumea, Eris, Sedna and Makemake in 2003 – 2005), and given their extreme distance and slow motion around the Sun (with Eris taking more than 560 years to complete a full cycle around the zodiac), a lot more time is required to research and validate their astrological significance and influence. We can rely on the myth stories related to their names as an initial point of reference, but we should be careful asserting decisive definitions when so much remains to be revealed. We hope however, that you will feel inspired to place them in your charts and spend time researching them.They certainly emerged into our consciousness at the dawn of this new millennia for important evolutionary reasons.
From Saturn to Pluto
Most astrologers are familiar with the nodal axis of the Moon, but less attention is given to the fact that planets too have a nodal axis! The nodal axis is constituted of two intersecting point where the planet in question comes to cross the ecliptic. Astrologically, these two points are of paramount importance with regards to describing developmental issues pertaining to the planet’s themes.
We must remember: every planet has a Nodal Axis!
Summer of 1958 – the charts of Prince, Michael Jackson, Madonna, Kate Bush
The Spectacular Parallel Fate of
the Jupiter/Neptune 1958 Super Stars
PRINCE & MICHAEL JACKSON
With Madonna and Kate Bush
Superstar and extraordinary talent musician Prince transitioned from this world on April 21, 2016, after collapsing in an elevator. Gone too soon, we would agree, for Prince was only 57.
Prince was born on June 7, 1958, on the early summer season that happened to see the birth of some of the most popular and recognizable pop icons of our time, among them Michael Jackson (Aug 29, 1958), Madonna (August 16, 1958), and across the ocean in Britain, Kate Bush (July 30, 1958).
It is truly astounding that this cluster of mega famous music stars were born within a few weeks of each other. We look for the celestial configurations in the natal chart of these figures that could capture their iconic status, and notice they were all born with a Jupiter/Neptune conjunction on their North Node.
The Jupiter – Uranus Opposition 2017
The Unexpected Marriage of Mind and Spirit
(Published in the Dec 2016 edition of The Astrology Journal – UK)
The current Jupiter transit, now at [around] 20 Libra, makes the first of three oppositions to Uranus in Aries. This is the ‘Full Moon’ phase of a cycle that initially began on 8 June 2010, when the pair was conjunct at zero degrees Aries, followed by two subsequent conjunctions until January 2011. Among notable events at the time, the controversial organisation WikiLeaks emerged more prominently into the public consciousness and released a series of classified documents. Some of these documents were leaked by US soldier Bradley Manning, and revealed damaging, behind-the-scenes information about the US war in Iraq and Afghanistan.
