December 7, 2018: Mars conjunction Neptune in the sky

Mars in the sky moves to form a conjunction aspect with Neptune on December 7, 2018 at 2.11.30pm GMT.

It’s a dangerous moment that will influence the mundane agenda here on Earth from around November 13 to December 30, 2018.

The matters ruled by each planet will come into prominence and every country has its own Mars-Neptune conjunction chart.

The chart acts as an event model that operates in a domestic and international environmental setting.

The Sun (planet of politics), the Moon (planet of the common people) and Jupiter (planet of finances, trade and religion) form unfriendly obstacle (square) aspects with the Mars-Neptune conjunction.

Mars in global astrology

Mars is the planet of strife, aggressive force, disputation, anger, provocation, haste, revenge, hate, brutality, torture, sex, vice, banditry, explosions, brawls, alcohol, gambling, fires, accidents and infectious disease.

He rules conflict, war, bombs, missiles, the military, soldiers, guns, knives, police, first responders, fire fighters, doctors, surgeons, industrial workers, manufacturing and manufacturers.

Mars has an aggressive, selfish nature that is naturally inclined to stir up strife, conflict, enmity, acrimony and violence.

His initiative and bravery confront dangerous situations and life-threatening enemies but there’s always a high element of risk, danger and peril.

Neptune in global astrology

Neptune is the planet of scheming, promotion, complex situations, confusion, uncertainty, deception, denial, lies, fake-news, hoaxes, cover-ups, fantasy thinking and spectacular exaggeration.

He rules oil, gas, drugs, chemicals, poisons, stock companies, investors, bondage, refugees, slaves, slavery, aviation, movies, the film industry, pornography, fishing, the fishing industry, socialism and inflation.

His desire to get something for nothing engages in non-violent crime – blackmail, get-rich-quick-schemes, frauds, swindles, scams, insider-trading and match-fixing.

Neptune is the planet of poisons

March 4, 2018: In Salisbury, England Sergie and Yulia Skripal are poisoned by the nerve-agent Novichok.

On June 30 a similar poisoning of 2 British nationals in Amesbury, 7 miles from Salisbury, involved the same nerve-agent.

August 12, 2018: Jurors in San Francisco ruled that Roundup, the world’s most popular weed killer, gave a former school groundskeeper terminal cancer and awarded him $289 million.

Neptune is the planet of chemicals

September 12, 2018: United Nations human rights investigators claim that Syrian government forces fired chlorine, a banned chemical weapon, on a rebel-held Damascus suburb and on Idlib province this year, in attacks that constitute war crimes. 

The three incidents bring the number of chemical attacks which the Commission of Inquiry on Syria has documented since 2013 to 39, including 33 attributed to the government. The perpetrators of the remaining six have not been identified.

The investigators said that weaponizing chlorine is prohibited under the Chemical Weapons Convention, ratified by Syria, and under customary international humanitarian law.

Neptune is the planet of oil

The world consumes almost 100 million barrels of crude oil per day.

According to Oil and Gas Investing News the top oil producers in 2017 were the US, Saudi Arabia, Russia, China, Canada, Iraq, Iran, Brazil and Venezuela.

In 2018 a number of factors have seen the oil price rise and the trade dispute between Washington and Beijing, the economic turmoil in Venezuela, the social unrest in an oil-rich area of Iraq and US sanctions on Iran could lead to further sharp increases.

Oil prices in early October were $80 – $85 a barrel.

Neptune is the planet of inflation

Inflation is a key indicator of economic activity.

It indicates that the general level of prices is going up and it will cost you more to buy a loaf of bread and have your hair cut.

A sustained rise in the price of crude oil can see a rise in inflation.

Governments strive for an inflation rate of around 2 to 3 percent per year, but like everything ruled by Neptune inflation is a complex matter.

When events can occur

Major events of the Mars-Neptune kind can occur during the aspect’s time-frame – November 13, 2018 to December 30 2018

They will be most evident as the aspect approaches peak power on December 7, 2018.

Major events and developments will be timed by aspects involving Mars and Neptune in all the major cycle charts.

Progressed Mars is parallel and conjunction Neptune in the Mars cycle from December 1 to December 7, 2018.

We stress that astrology does not forecast precise, definite events and that this Mars-Neptune conjunction is merely an astrological event in the sky that makes events of a certain type probable on the Earth around December 7, 2018.

The Mars-Neptune conjunction and you

This Mars-Neptune conjunction aspect in the sky will have no influence on you personally.

What’s currently taking place in your life and what’s on your mind is primarily determined by the major progressed aspects in your chart and the local environment in which you live, work and operate.

On the world stage the chief actors involved in the Mars-Neptune events will have these planets in their birth charts scoring above average astrodyne power plus one or more progressed aspects involving Mars and Neptune.

Mars conjunction Neptune around the globe

In a specified chart the house where Mars and Neptune are located indicates the area of national affairs most strongly influenced by their coming together.

Some countries due to their political, social and economic circumstances are predisposed to experience the Mars-Neptune discord more than others.

Events bearing the Mars and Neptune signature include chemical weapons attacks, oil disputes, oil fires, chemical contamination, accidents involving oil tankers, aviation disputes, plane crashes, fishing disputes, alcohol poisoning, initiatives to manage drug problems, manufacturing schemes, violence ignited by run-a-way inflation etc.

Whatever…Mars will be active stirring up strife and violence and Neptune will be active sowing chaos and making matters complicated.

September 25, 2018: In his address at the opening of high-level General Debate at the United Nations Antonio Guterres said:

‘Our world is suffering from a bad case of 'trust deficit disorder'. People are feeling troubled and insecure. Trust is at a breaking point. Trust in national institutions. Trust among states. Trust in the rules-based global order.

Within countries, people are losing faith in political establishments, polarisation is on the rise and populism is on the march.

Power relations are less clear. Universal values are being eroded. Democratic principles are under siege. The rule of law is being undermined. Impunity is on the rise, as leaders and states push the boundaries at home and in the international arena.

The world is more connected, yet societies are becoming more fragmented. Challenges are growing outward, while many people are turning inward. Multi-lateralism is under fire precisely when we need it most.’

The UN chief described a world situation that’s defined by Lower-Pluto.

Saudi Arabia and Jamal Khashoggi

Saudi Arabia is an absolute monarchy with MBS destined to have absolute power.

On October 2, 2018 – with progressed Mars parallel birth chart Pluto in the Aquarian Age chart, Mars square Pluto in the sky and progressed Mars parallel Mercury in the Mars cycle – Jamal Khashoggi, a columnist (Mercury) for The Washington Post, went missing after entering the Saudi consulate in Istanbul to obtain paperwork that would allow him to marry his Turkish fiancée.

His disappearance drew international condemnation – Britain, France and Germany demanded a ‘credible investigation’ – and escalated into a ‘threatening’ match (Pluto) between Donald Trump and Saudi Arabia.

In response to threats of economic sanctions or political pressure Saudi Arabia retaliated by threatening to impose sanctions on the US.

In a coordinated response Oman, Bahrain, Jordan, Lebanon, the United Arab Emirates and Egypt gave their support (Pluto) to Saudi Arabia.

By mid October Khashoggi’s disappearance was the hot news item. Turkey claimed to have audio of the journalist’s murder; King Salman bin Abdulaziz of Syria denied any knowledge of the incident; Donald Trump suggested ‘rogue killers’; Mike Pompeo was sent to Saudi Arabia and Turkey; and US Congressmen were openly calling for MBS to go.

On October 19 Saudi Arabia released the results of an internal investigation that showed that Jamal Khashoggi died in a fistfight in Saudi Arabia’s consulate in Istanbul. Five top Saudi officials, including MBS’s advisor and a deputy intelligence chief, were fired and 18 others arrested.

If this developing story doesn’t go away by November 13, when Mars moves into orb of a conjunction aspect with Neptune, it will escalate dramatically.

Progressed Mars parallel birth chart Pluto in the Aquarian Age chart reaches peak power on December 19, 2018.


The Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC) comprises 15 member countries – Algeria, Angola, Congo, Ecuador, Equatorial Guinea, Gabon, IR Iran, Iraq, Kuwait, Libya, Nigeria, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, United Arab Emirates and Venezuela.

OPEC’s mission is to coordinate and unify the petroleum policies of its Member Countries and ensure the stabilization of oil markets in order to secure an efficient, economic and regular supply of petroleum to consumers.

China is involved in disputes involving island and maritime claims with Brunei, Republic of China (Taiwan), Malaysia, Indonesia, the Philippines, and Vietnam.

It’s also involved in 55 trade disputes – 13 with the European Union and a major trade war with America.

According to a report by Reuters on February 23, 2018 China has the world’s largest and fartherest-ranging fishing operation and is the most important fishing (Neptune) nation in the world.

It tends to have delicate diplomatic relations with China, its largest trading partner, and Indonesia and its harsh asylum seeker policy comes under fire from the United Nations.

On the international stage Australia aligns with the west.

By the end of 2018 inflation was expected to be 1,000,000 per cent.

Venezuela is oil-rich, and has the largest proven reserves in the world. But because it has so much oil, it has never bothered to produce much else.

It sells oil to other countries and imports goods that Venezuelans want and need with the dollars it earns.
