This forecast for the United Nations in 2017 is based on a chart constructed for October 24, 1945 at 4.45pm EST – Washington (38N53; 77W01). The data comes from Elbert Benjamine. The U.N. Charter sets out four main purposes. They are to…
- Maintain worldwide peace and security
- Develop relations between nations
- Foster cooperation between nations in order to solve economic, social cultural, or humanitarian international problems and
- Provide a forum for bringing countries together to meet the UN’s purposes and goals.
There are currently 193 countries in the General Assembly.
The difficulties facing the UN in 2016, forecast in a previous commentary, all came to pass. We wrote; ‘2016-2017 are shaping up as tough years for the UN. Progressed MC in house 12 is trine (luck) progressed Saturn in house 4 – but it signs for suffering and hardship (Saturn) in the war torn countries – and with progressed Mercury moving to form a square aspect with progressed MC and an opposition aspect with birthchart Moon the organization will struggle to fulfill its obligations to the common people (Moon) and this will result in criticism and controversy (Mercury). And to quote Ban Ki Moon on December 13, 2016: ‘…we have collectively failed the people of Syria.’
The UN chart progressed to December 31, 2017
The Sun, planet of power and authority, and Mercury, planet of talk, conferences, announcements and controversy, are in house 7 (the international community) but Mars, the planet of strife, aggressive force, disputes and conflict in house 4 (land, territory and natural resources) dominates the chart. Saturn, planet of security, loss, hardship and suffering is also in house 4 (natural disasters, destructive weather events and homes and buildings). And with Mars conjunction Saturn it’s the wars causing the greatest loss and suffering. This chart set-up reveals just how difficult it will be for the UN to ‘maintain worldwide peace and security.’ The war situation in Syria and the Middle East is currently the organizations chief concern and with progressed Mercury opposition birthchart Mars, planet of bloodshed and brutality, in the Aquarian Age chart the situation there is destined to deteriorate even further.
Major progressed aspects formed by major progressed planets to birthchart or other major progressed planets identify structural changes taking place in the chart. They sign for major events and developments of a type signified by the planets involved in the aspect and their house positions. They represent energy-events that have a start, peak and finish date and major events pertaining to a specified aspect tend to occur near its peak power date.
Progressed Mercury – planet of talks, debates and controversy – in house 9 (television, internet and social media) is inconjunct progressed Saturn – planet of land, security measures, fear, failure, hardship, shortages, disease and natural disasters – in house 4 (homes and buildings). It was perfect September 29, 2016 and finishes on June 16, 2017.
Progressed Mercury in house 9 (speeches and announcements) is opposition birthchart Moon – planet of the common people and civilians – in house 3 (roads and transport). The aspect reaches peak power and discord on February 12, 2017 and finishes in November 2017.
Progressed Mercury – planet of summits, talks, conferences, debates, discussion papers, reports and controversy – in house 9 (speeches and announcements) is parallel (intensity) birthchart Mars – planet of conflict, rows, strife, disputes, guns, bombs and retaliation – in house 4 (homes and buildings). It has a long time-frame and reaches peak power on March 21, 2017.
Progressed Jupiter – planet of finances, goodwill, arbitration and treaties – in house 7 (war and the international community) – is square (obstacle) birthchart Saturn – planet of natural disasters, floods, suffering, starvation and disease – in house 4 (land, homes, buildings and weather events). The aspect reached peak power on June 5, 2013 and finishes on September 19, 2022. The UN’s response to natural disasters has been curbed by financial restraints.
Progressed Sun – planet of politics and governance – in house 10 (the administration) is parallel birthchart Moon – planet of the common people, civilians and bread and butter issues – in house 3 (roads and transport). It reaches peak power on April 27, 2020.
And progressed Mercury in house 9 is parallel birthchart Moon in house 3. It reaches peak power on March 8, 2017.
On March 11, 2017 progressed Sun – planet of leadership, political authority and governance – in house 10 (administration and public standing) – moves to form an inconjunct (expansion) aspect with progressed Uranus – planet of reform, unexpected developments, extremists and radical change – in house 2 (finances and financial policy). The aspect signs for administrative change and financial reforms and reaches peak power on February 20, 2018.
And on May 23, 2017 progressed Mercury – planet of talks and controversy – in house 9 (legal matters, religion and shipping) moves to form an inconjunct aspect with birthchart Mars – planet of war, strife and rows – in house 4 (lands and territories). It reaches peak power on February 21, 2018.
Based on the current progressions in the UN’s chart we can only conclude that the United Nations in 2017 will be stretched to the limit as it strives to deal with wars, land disputes and the suffering and hardship caused by natural disasters and destructive weather events.

Major Moon progressions in 2017
The major progressed Moon forms aspects to birthchart and progressed planets. They map independent sub-major events or fine-tune the time when a major event related to a major progressed aspect can occur. Major Moon aspects have an 8 week time-frame – four weeks before and four weeks after their perfect peak date.
On February 9, 2017 progressed Moon in house 10 moves to form a high-discord separation (opposition) aspect with progressed Saturn in house 4 – loss events, hardship, suffering, destructive weather and natural disasters. It stimulates progressed Mercury inconjunct progressed Saturn and reaches peak power on March 10.
On February 25, 2017 progressed Moon moves to form a semisextile aspect with progressed Mercury and an inconjunct aspect with birthchart Moon and major events pertaining to the Mercury-Moon opposition aspect can occur between then and March 29 when the progressed Moon stimulation reaches peak power.
On March 25, 2017 progressed Moon moves to form a parallel aspect with progressed Uranus – planet of change, reform and unexpected developments – in house 2 (finances). It reaches peak power on November 29.
On April 4, 2017 progressed Moon moves to form a high-discord opposition aspect with birthchart Mars and major events pertaining to the Mercury-Mars parallel aspect (war-talk, violent controversies and brutal destruction) can occur between then and May 3 when this very violent energy-event reaches peak power.
On April 26, 2017 progressed Moon in house 10 moves to form an opposition aspect with birthchart Saturn – planet of security measures, loss, hardship, suffering and failure – in house 4 (homes and buildings). It reaches peak power on May 25 and major events of the Saturn type can occur near this date.
On April 27, 2017 progressed Moon moves to form a parallel (intensity) aspect with progressed Mercury (talk and controversy) in house 9 (announcements); and on May 3 it forms a parallel aspect with birthchart Mars – planet of war, guns, bombs and hate. These aspects reach peak power on November 24 and December 21, 2017 respectively and fine-tune when major events of the Mercury-Mars type can occur.
On May 6, 2017 progressed Moon moves to form a parallel (intensity) aspect with birthchart Moon – planet of basic needs, water and shelter. It reaches peak power on December 23, 2017 and stimulates the major Sun-Moon, Mercury-Moon parallel aspects. The UN’s attention is focused on the basic needs of the civilian population and fine-tunes the timing of important Sun-Moon and Mercury-Moon type events.
On May 9, 2017 progressed Moon moves to form a square aspect with progressed Jupiter – planet of finances and treaties – in house 7 (war, conflicts and disputes). It reaches peak power on June 7 and stimulates progressed Jupiter square birthchart Saturn. Major Jupiter-Saturn type events can occur near this date.
On June 29, 2017 progressed Moon in house 10 moves to form an opposition aspect with progressed Mars in house 4. This high-discord energy-event reaches peak power and discord on July 27 and stimulates the major Mercury-Mars progression. Mars signs for violent attacks, fighting in the war-zones, land disputes, savagery, brutal atrocities, thoughtless destruction and war tensions. (Progressed Mercury opposition birthchart Mars in the Aquarian Age chart is perfect on June 17, 2017.)
On September 4, 2017, progressed Moon moves to form a sesquisquare (agitation) aspect with progressed Uranus – planet sudden events, change and reform – in house 2 (finances). It reaches peak power on October 3 and signs for important changes and reforms mapped by the major Sun-Uranus inconjunct aspect.
On October 26 progressed Moon moves to form a square aspect with birthchart Sun in house 7 (war and the international community). It reaches peak power on November 24 and stimulates the major Sun-Uranus inconjunct aspect.
On November 21 progressed Moon moves to form a sesquisquare aspect with birthchart Uranus – planet of sudden and unexpected events – in house 2 (financial policy). It reaches peak power on December 20, 2017 and signs for major administrative changes and financial reforms.
And on November 30, 2017 progressed Moon in house 10 moves to form an intensity (parallel) aspect with progressed Saturn in house 4. This high-discord energy event reaches peak power on May 17, 2018 and the UN’s chief concern is the safety and security of those suffering, disease, despair and homelessness in the regions experiencing war, natural disasters and destructive weather events.
