Social Justice/Injustice – April 8-15 2020

The Mars harsh square aspect to Uranus is waning, as Mars moves ahead in Aquarius. Uranus in Taurus, moving from our perspective 1 degree every 3 weeks, will station and turn apparent motion retrograde in mid-August at 10 degrees of Taurus. Now at 5 degrees Taurus it churns up the matters most important to us – health and finances. The sudden reversals in wealth and health are affecting many globally. Reversals that were unexpected, unplanned for and seemingly chaotic affect us all. Individual with a strong Uranus placement in their natal charts, have by now become accustomed to reversals and unexpected events in their personal lives, and so this pandemic may be another even that we now take more-or-less in stride. Having the pandemic affect your personal life may depend on the placement of Uranus in your horoscope, i.e., your birth chart. The effect of the pandemic, with Jupiter conjunction aspect to Pluto intensified this week in many quarters of the world. The destruction could also be modified by Jupiter, a symbol of social benefits. While some suffer loss of life or the lives of family members, others have lost their livelihood. Unable to pay their bills, their rent for months, unable to meet loan payments, they could swirl into deeper debt. Thus, misfortune strikes in various ways, with one source that is a universal or global misfortune. Being able to rebuild in the aftermath, could depend on community support. We understand one another better, as we all meet this calamity.

Summary of Major Aspects of the Week

Wednesday April 8th – The Moon in Libra makes a square aspect (90 deg, harsh) to Pluto/Jupiter conjunction aspect (0 deg, combining) in Capricorn, as we try to balance loss with gain. What does Pluto/Jupiter say? Jupiter will inflate the energies it encounters. Jupiter expands our sense of forceful transformation as a global culture. As Jupiter is now superseding Pluto, Jupiter will forge slowly ahead, having been transformed into a global force. Pluto cares not for social benefit, but seeks to transform power in Capricorn and thus the status quo. The Internet has brought everyone closer to everyone else, and even confined to a single room, one can communicate with the world or with one other according to his or her will.  Jupiter brings us together profoundly.  Mercury in Pisces is in a sextile aspect to Pluto/Jupiter in Cap, as issues that surface are being endlessly examined. Doubts arise, experts advise. We are but ships in a storm, tossed to and fro. The Sun in Aries is semisextile aspect (30 deg, mild) to Neptune, illusions that deceive us. While Venus in Gemini is semi-sextile aspect to Uranus in Taurus, Venus disposed of by Mercury in Pisces, offers the best remedies. The Moon ingress Scorpio late in the day, making a square aspect to Saturn in Aquarius and an opposition aspect to Uranus follows a few hours later. There is new hope for relief from symptoms of the new Covid-19 virus. The Moon in a square aspect to Mars in Aquarius follows late in the day or early morning in the eastern half of the globe. Intense efforts could show results. For intensity, the day ends with Mars square aspect to Uranus. Conflicts threaten peace and security issues, an aspect that was partile two days ago, indicates that the issues of security are still working out.  

Thursday April 9thVenus in Gemini and Mars in Aquarius, are closing in on a trine aspect (120 deg, flowing) although the aspect becomes close at a degree and a half and separating over the next 3 days, Venus slows gradually, preparing for the retrograde that begins in mid-May. The aspect does not reach partile, but still could be in effect for many people, as couples are working well together, and communication improves. The effective orders to stay home and practice social distancing seems to coincide with the Jupiter/Pluto conjunction aspect in Capricorn. As Jupiter moves ahead now, advancing the social integration from the top commands, all heads-of-state.

Friday April 10th – The Moon in Scorpio is in a square aspect (90 deg, harsh) to Ceres in Aquarius, and a sextile aspect (60 deg, working) to Pluto and Jupiter in Capricorn as that conjunction aspect is now with reduced intensity, effectively holding the patterns worldwide of social distancing. This is still a disagreeable command to many of the younger generations. Venus in Gemini remains at a semi-sextile aspect (30 deg, mild) to Uranus in Taurus as some forces can be held in check with sensitive verbal remarks. The Moon ingress to Sagittarius with a sextile aspect (60 deg, helpful) to Saturn in Aquarius. Medical science is advancing worldwide cooperation while Mercury ingress to Aries and sextile aspect to Saturn in Aquarius. The Moon in an opposition aspect to Venus closes the day, with greater acquiesce to conditions imposed.

Saturday April 11th – The Moon in Sagittarius is trine aspect to Chiron in Aries (120 deg, flowing) as encouragement continues for distancing efforts that are wisely maintained. The Moon is then in a sextile aspect (60 deg, helpful) to Mars in Aquarius, as acceptance of the scientific is critical and philosophically promoted.

The Moon is ingress to Capricorn and conjunction aspect (0 deg, combining) with Ketu (S. lunar node) indicating setbacks that could affect the speed of recovery, and a square aspect (90 deg, harsh) to Mercury in Aries as disagreeable pronouncements are upsetting. The Moon in a trine aspect to Uranus in Taurus (and square aspect to Chiron in Aries) could then lead to more breakthrough discoveries.  The triggering of radical or violent events cannot be avoided.

Monday April 13th – The Moon in Capricorn indicates that official voices are presiding, and semi-sextile aspect to Mars in Aquarius, the demands could seem unreasonable, and the quincunx aspect (150 deg, complex) to Venus in Gemini adds more complexity to the interaction of government and the governed.
