Purges and Revolution — January 27 – February 3rd 2021


The Moon in Cancer travels in opposition aspects to Venus and Pluto in Capricorn, bringing the Venus charm to confront the Pluto transformer, as a purge takes place among officers and government officials, and an Impeachment trial is set to begin. Simultaneously, the Sun approaches the conjunction aspect with Jupiter in Aquarius with the Moon in opposition aspect in Leo on Thursday, at the Full Moon. Saturn in Aquarius approaches a square aspect to Uranus in Taurus, although this is a slower aspect forming, when Saturn (judgement), applies to Uranus (revolution).   Mercury turns retrograde motion on Saturday, and Venus ingress Aquarius on Tuesday. The past is reviewed before opening a new chapter. The stellium in Aquarius gains another planet.

Summary of Major Aspects of the Week

Wednesday January 27th — Steeped in the knowledge of discontent, with the trine aspect to Neptune early in the morning (EST), the Moon in Cancer transits to the opposition aspect to Venus approaching Pluto, bringing the nymph and the abductor into confrontation. One can seek mercy while the other requires transformation. An Aquarian jury of enlightened beings renders the sentence. Putin faces an uprising of his own, now that he no longer has a friend in the White House, and may get purged also, or imposes a crackdown on the population and a shakeup of his government. Uranus is the dispositor of Venus, Saturn, the Sun and Mercury in Aquarius, as unpredictable events follow.

Full Moon
January 28, 2021

Thursday January 28th — The full Moon at 4:17 pm (EST) or 12:17 (PST), at 9°of Leo, is in opposition aspect to Jupiter and the Sun in Aquarius. In Aquarius, the Saturn energy undergoes a transformation of its own power in the sign that it has affinity to (formerly considered the ruler of) Aquarius.  Leaders face the judgement of their populace fomenting revolutionary acts.  As Venus supersedes Pluto, I wonder if Putin will release Alexei Navalny. Mars is at the focal point of the Moon in opposition aspects to Sun and Jupiter — a T-square formation. Mars deals harshly to maintain power. Putin’s natal Venus is in an opposition aspect to transiting Mars in Taurus, making a grand-cross configuration with the Full Moon and Sun.* In the US, the Articles of Impeachment were delivered to the Senate on Monday, setting the stage for the trial in the Senate.  A conviction would prevent Trump from holding any future government office. The opening of the trial proceedings scheduled for February 9th. More on this next week.  The full Moon brings into the open the issues of security (a Saturn activity although Taurus and the other earth signs are spheres of security) is a at the New Moon (Jan 13th) that were raised following the destructive riot of Jan 6th on the capitol itself. More arrests are made as participants in the riot are tracked down.  

Friday January 29th — As the Sun in Aquarius supersedes Jupiter, it approaches the square aspect to Mars in Taurus. Measures are implemented to attack the pandemic and the economic downturn. The Moon in Leo is quincunx aspect to Neptune in Pisces. It then transits to the opposition aspect to Mercury, just as Mercury is stationary and preparing to turn retrograde. Mercury then is semi-sextile to Pluto and Venus in Capricorn, as the Moon makes a quincunx aspect to the pair. A creative use of legislative powers (stellium in Aquarius) and executive actions (Capricorn) help to arrest the raging pandemic.

Saturday January 30th — The Moon in Virgo makes trine aspects to Uranus and Mars in Taurus. Technical services are rapidly advanced to arrest the spread of the infectious Covid disease. Mercury in Aquarius turns retrograde motion, maintaining a semi-sextile aspect to Venus and Pluto in Capricorn, as deployment of the materials are mandated to support the distribution of the vaccine. Saturn in Aquarius (the protector of humanity) is sextile aspect to Chiron in Aries, as the hope for universal inoculation is in view, and priority is given to the process.

Sunday January 31st — The Moon in Virgo is in an opposition aspect to Neptune in Pisces early today, with more health issues emerging. The mutation of the virus, as well as falsification of the after-effects or side-effects could slow the implementation of the vaccine. The Moon in an opposition aspect to Ceres in Pisces could indicate the empowerment of youth to take a service role in implementing the vaccination campaign.  The Moon in a trine aspect to Pluto overnight or early morning in the Eastern hemisphere, could indicate that supplies are replenished and made available.

Monday February 1st — The Moon ingress to Libra early today makes a trine aspect to Venus at the Venus ingress to Aquarius, for a full stellium of 5 planets in Aquarius. Now, air signs predominate.  The Moon makes a trine aspect to Saturn in Aquarius and an opposition aspect to Chiron in Aries, before the quincunx aspect to Uranus in Taurus.  Becoming more focused on the universal result of the vaccinations, while supply issues could cause disruptions and delays. Radical elements could infiltrate, slowing and complicating procedures. New virus mutations are challenging the efficacy of the vaccine. The Sun in Aquarius makes a square aspect to Mars in Taurus. Inflammatory and conflicting opinions are expressed.

Tuesday February 2nd — The Moon in Libra makes a trine aspect to the Sun in Aquarius early in the day, pre-dawn in most of the USA, as assistance to the conflict raging is offered. As the Sun supersedes the square aspect to Mars in Taurus, with the Moon quincunx to Mars, reason overcomes brute force. Air signs dominate, as intellect helps to resolve issues. As Mercury retro in Aquarius returns to the sextile aspect with Pluto in Capricorn, the Moon is trine aspect to Mercury and square aspect to Pluto, occurring late in the day, or morning in the Eastern hemisphere. This is in indication of hidden matters revealed. Investigations lead to new inflammatory discoveries. A fundamental change is underway.     

Inner chart: V. Putin
Outer chart: Full Moon 28 Jan 2021

* Putin will have to calculate carefully to maintain power. He may release Navalny to appease his critics, as the Moon transits his natal Pluto in Leo, setting himself up for a transformation in governing. Mercury turning retro this weekend will be in an opposition aspect to Putin’s natal Pluto on the 5-6th of February. Uranus in Taurus will transit to an opposition aspect to his natal 1st House Venus in May, threatening his position.
