Earth-shaking moments: July-August 2017

A convergence of discord in key astrological charts during July and August 2017 forecasts strife, controversy and Earth-shaking moments.

In the Aquarian Age chart progressed Mercury is opposition birthchart Mars and progressed Mars is inconjunct birthchart Moon. They’re high-discord astrological events that reach peak power on June 17, 2017 and June 26, 2018 respectively. Each country has its own Aquarian Age chart and the major domestic and international events they forecast are timed to occur during July and August 2017. Here’s why…

On July 6, 2017 major progressed Moon in the Aquarian Age chart moves to form an inconjunct aspect with progressed Mars. It reaches peak power on August 6 and ends on September 6 and this stimulation to Mars raises the level of Mars energy and sets the scene for an outbreak of high-discord Mercury-Mars and Mars-Moon events around the globe. Progressed Moon conjunction birthchart Moon reaches peak power on August 26, 2017.

In a specified Aquarian Age chart the areas of mundane life impacted are those ruled by the houses where progressed Mercury, birthchart Mars, birthchart Mercury, progressed Mars and birthchart Moon – and those where the signs these planets rule – are located.

The Moon is the planet of the common people, the civilian population, food, water, basic commodities and notoriety.

Mercury is the planet of newspapers, journalists, writers, information, science, scientists, teachers, educators, education, students, discussions, talks and controversy.

Mars is the planet of strife, violence, missiles, bombs, guns, war, conflict, disputes, disputation, rows, hate, belligerence, provocation, retaliation, aggressive action, danger, the military, police, manufacturing, accidents and fires.

The Mercury-Mars opposition aspect forecasts acts of violence, strife, conflict, disputation, war-talk, dangerous provocation, a war of words, angry words, heated discussion, hate-speech, reckless decision-making, a war on the media, a war on science, a war on freedom of expression, freedom of information disputes, education policy squabbles, alternative facts disagreements, attacks on journalists, student violence, increased levels of irrationality and violent controversies that quickly accelerate out of control. Mercury is the planet of wind and Mars is the planet of hot weather and forest fires.

The Mars-Moon inconjunct aspect forecasts accidents and fires that claim many lives, acts of violence/bombings targeting the ordinary, everyday people, large numbers of civilian casualties in the war-zones, domestic disputation and an increase in domestic violence.

The Sun cycle chart is a general events chart and each country has its own Sun cycle chart. It commenced on March 20, 2017 and a specified chart is a forecast model of events and developments during the chart’s one year duration. In this chart the Sun – a key marker – is square the Moon and Saturn and their conjunction aspect signs for worldwide fear and insecurity – even panic. The Moon is the planet of the common people and Saturn is the planet of loss, economy, safety, hardship, debt, austerity, despair and grief.

2017 Sun cycle Washington1-usa

The 5 planets in house 1 (the people and their health, welfare and domestic affairs) and the Moon-Saturn conjunction in house 10 (Donald Trump and his administration) should grab your attention. And the Sun in house 1 is square (obstacle) the Moon-Saturn conjunction. Uranus in house 1 dominates the chart. It’s the planet of sudden shocks, startling revelations, radical moves, reform, social unrest and protests. And Saturn, the chief source of discord for President Trump, is cusp ruler of house 11 (the Senate and Congress). It’s the planet of crystallizing conservatism, rear-vision thinking, selfishness, heavy burdens and budget cuts.

The New Moon cycle chart is a general events chart. It has a global influence and each country has its own New Moon cycle chart. The chart operates in a domestic setting and is a forecast model of events influencing a country’s domestic agenda during its 29 day forecast period. But this chart also serves a special function. It stimulates house activity in the Sun cycle chart and fine-tunes the timing of major events mapped in that chart.

The Leo New Moon occurs July 23, 2017 at 9.45.35am UT and in this chart the Sun-Moon conjunction – a key marker – is conjunction Mars and square Uranus.  And for many countries the house positions of the Sun, Moon, Mars and Uranus in their New Moon charts is the same as the house positions of the Sun and the Moon-Saturn conjunction in their Sun cycle charts.

Mars square Uranus in this chart is ominous. Uranus can sign for unexpected shocks that occur with cataclysmic suddenness. And its role in surprise terror attacks or any event where there’s an element of surprise is pronounced. Uranus is the planet of extremists and lone-wolf terror attacks. Pluto is the terror network that provides the lone-wolf with backup support. It’s the planet of fanatics and terror groups. Otherwise Mars is the planet of strife, conflict and violence and any act of violence has a Mars trade mark.

The Leo New Moon cycle chart will influence the proceedings from July 23 to August 21, 2017.

New Moon cycle chart Washington July 23, 2017 at 5.45.35am EDST

This is a high discord chart. It signs for a very dangerous moment.  The Sun, Moon and Mars in house 1 (the people) are square Uranus – the planet of sudden shocks and change – in house 10 (the President). Mars is the cusp ruler of house 10. Uranus there can sign for startling revelations about the President or radical-extreme moves by him that cause widespread public anger.  Mars – the planet of strife, anger, hate, guns and violence – in house 1 and Uranus – the planet of extremists – in house 1 of the Sun cycle chart indicates that there are extremists who a feeling very hostile. Measures of self-protection are needed.

Significant world events rarely arrive unheralded out of the blue and there are currently a number of ongoing events that could easily erupt into emergency situations. The wheels of discord have already been set in motion. Around the globe the dissension and aggressive rhetoric is escalating, countries are feuding, violence, in its many forms, is a big issue and there’s a war on ISIS, the media and science.

In particular North Korea is aggressively pursuing a nuclear arms program. Its belligerence and provocation is a sure recipe for retaliation. The fighting rages in Syria and Iraq. The world watches as Yemen descends into catastrophe and democracy is collapsing in Venezuela. In the US Donald Trump’s administration is haunted by an investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election.  (In Russia’s Aquarian Age chart progressed Mercury is in house 9 – the internet and websites – and cusp ruler of house 12 – secret, undercover activity.) A number of countries are accusing Russia of meddling in their domestic affairs and democratic processes. And Brexit has Britain and the European Union squabbling.

Events occur under the cumulative build-up of astrological energies. Progressed Mercury opposition birthchart Mars and progressed Mars inconjunct birthchart Moon in the Aquarian Age chart commenced in November 2016 and February 2017 respectively and progressed Moon inconjunct progressed Mars on August 6, 2017 ups the level of Mars energy. It narrows the time-frame for when major Mercury-Mars and Mars-Moon events can occur to between July 6 and September 6, 2017. The Leo New Moon chart narrows it even further to between July 23 and August 21, 2017. Transit aspects to Mercury and Mars in the Aquarian Age chart and the cycle charts are tipping points that time events. During July and August transit Pluto is square progressed Mars in the Aquarian Age chart and during July Mars is particularly active in the sky.
