America: September 9, 2020 – March 26, 2021

When Donald Trump was inaugurated US president on January 20, 2016 one thing was for certain: His presidency wasn’t going to be a big yawn. He wasn’t going to bore his subjects senseless or send them to sleep. Rather, many would probably have sleepless nights. When there’s someone at the helm who doesn’t know how to captain the ship you just know that a precarious future is going to get a lot more uncertain and perilous. 2020 proved that.

By September 2020 the country was a tinderbox of hate and division just waiting to explode. We consider the progressed aspects in America’s chart from September 2020 to March 2021 to script a national reckoning that’s defined by division, racial injustice, inequality, fury, violent unrest and cataclysmic change.

America’s chart progressed to March 26, 2021

Chart data is July 4, 1776 at 12.14am LMT, Philadelphia (74W08; 39N57)

Progressed Sun inconjunct birth chart Saturn ends March 13, 2021. It activated a birth chart square and scripted the despair, death and economic suffering triggered by the coronavirus pandemic.

Progressed Sun – planet of political power and leadership – at 15 Pisces 49 in house 11 is trine progressed Jupiter – planet of finances, optimism and hope – at 15 Cancer 13R in house 2; and semisquare progressed Pluto – planet of division, groups and misinformation – at 00 Aquarius 10 in house 9.

Since September 2017 the Sun-Pluto semisquare aspect has ripped the country apart. It ends July 30, 2021.

Progressed Venus – planet of women and social fun – at 1 Taurus 03 in house 12 is square progressed Pluto at 00 Aquarius 10 in house 9.

The social isolation made necessary by the coronavirus pandemic and the unemployment associated with its economic fallout were scripted by this Venus-Pluto square aspect. It ends May 6, 2021.

September-December 2020

Progressed Mercury – planet of controversy – at 20 Aquarius 50 in house 10 (Donald Trump) is trine birth chart Mars – planet of hate, anger, gun violence, shootings, militias, police and the national guard – in house 1 (the people); progressed Mars at 3S54 is parallel birth chart Saturn – planet of grief and suffering – at 3S31; and on September 17, 2020 progressed Moon in house 9 moves to form an inconjunct aspect with birth chart Mars.   

This Moon-Mars progression stimulates all the Mars progressions and is sure to script violence events that ignite anger and fury across America. The nation is burning. It reaches peak power on October 14, 2020 and ends November 10 so it’s influencing events come election day.

Progressed Uranus – planet of radical activity, racism, unrest, protests and rebellion – at 7 Gemini 09 in house 12 (self-undoing) is conjunction birth chart ascendant ( the people); progressed Moon at 20S51 is parallel progressed Uranus at 21N30 and birth chart ascendant at 21N36; and on October 20, 2020 progressed Moon moves to form a sesquisquare aspect with progressed Uranus.

This Moon-Uranus progression ups the stimulation to the Uranus-ascendant conjunction and is sure to script a major disturbance that shocks the nation. Mars plus Uranus equals a police shooting and violent unrest. The people are on the streets protesting and getting shot. A rebellious Uranus is causing disruption and demanding change. The aspect reaches peak power on November 16, 2020 and ends December 13 so it’s influencing events come election day.

Progressed Neptune – planet of fraud, chaos and confusion – at 2N49 in house 5 (the stock market) is parallel birth chart Saturn at 3S31; and on October 27, 2020 progressed Moon moves to form a trine aspect with progressed Neptune.

This Moon-Neptune trine aspect reaches peak power on November 23, 2020 and ends December 20 and it’s sure to play a role in the events associated with the other Moon progressions.

And on October 31, 2020 (give or take a few days) progressed Moon moves to form a sesquisquare aspect with birth chart ascendant. This aspect reaches peak power November 28, 2020 and ends December 24 and scripts major events directly involving the American people and their welfare. They’re on the front line taking protest action.

December 2020-March 2021

On December 6, 2020 progressed Moon moves to form a sesquisquare aspect with progressed Uranus in house 1. It reaches peak power on January 2, 2021 and ends January  29, 2021.

So, from October 20, 2020 to January 29, 2021 the stimulation to birth chart and progressed Uranus is unrelenting and the elected president’s inauguration is set for January 20, 2021 (with Mars conjunction Uranus in the sky – the aspect that in 1861 ignited the American Civil War).

Progressed Mercury in house 10 (the president) is trine birth chart Mars in house 1 (the people); progressed ascendant in house 7 (other countries) is inconjunct birth chart Mercury in house 3; and on December 22, 2020 progressed Moon moves to form an opposition aspect with birth chart Mercury.

This high discord Moon-Mercury progression stimulates all the Mercury progressions and forecasts a major controversy involving the US postal service, postal voting, phone calls or emails (house 3). The event is a top topic of conversation and has the people talking.

And on February 2, 2021 progressed Moon moves to form a trine aspect with progressed Neptune in house 5. Neptune is the planet of drama, exaggeration, fraud and confusion and house 5 events involve the stock market, children, schools, entertainment and sport.

This Moon-Neptune aspect reaches peak power on February 28, 2021 and ends March 26.

In 2020 the polarization that defines America escalated dangerously.

A nation that’s divided politically, socially and racially is a danger to itself; and a nation that defines greatness by selfish nationalism is a danger to the world.

2020 has been a nightmare year for Donald Trump’s America. Its Piscean Age God was short on blessings while the Great God of all the Universes worked her magic through the progressed aspects in the country’s birth chart. They provide educational experiences – some good, some bad – and when a nation fails to learn from its mistakes it’s destined to repeat the unlearned lesson over and over again until it does.
