Mars moves to form a conjunction aspect with Jupiter on March 20, 2020 at 11.34.46am GMT; and their merger in the sky brings the mundane matters they rule on Earth into stark prominence.
Mars rules strife, war, conflict, violence, disputation, guns, anger, hate, revenge, haste, recklessness, alcohol, the military, army, soldiers, militants, emergency service workers and firefighters. He’s the planet of missiles, accidents, fires and infections.
Jupiter rules finances, spending, banks, neobanks, bankers, trade, trade fairs, traders, merchants, law, legal matters, the courts, judges, philosophy, religion, ethics, preachers, clerics, rabbis, philanthropy, philanthropists, charity, books, publishing, shipping, the cruise liner industry, long journeys and tourism. He’s the planet of expansion, abundance and goodwill.
The forecast period for this dynamic in-sky energy-event, during which major Mars-Jupiter events can occur, is February 25 to April 10, 2020.
It’s a strictly global – mundane astrology – event that will have no influence on your personally.
Mars and Jupiter in 2020
In March 2020 the world is a hot-bed of conflict. There are shooting wars, word wars, cyber wars, trade wars and information wars.
In August 1949 Mars and Jupiter established the laws of war at the Geneva Convention, but in 2020 the conventions to protect the victims of war are being broken by everyone. Brutes and savages don’t obey the rules of war and the horrors going on in the war zones are gross violations of the Geneva Conventions.
In 2020 a conflict zone is a horrific environment – the images on your television screen mean nothing. There’s horrible violence in Syria, Yemen and Nigeria. Hospitals and civilians are targeted and attacks on hospitals mean long-term suffering and hardship. Thousands of innocent civilians have been killed. There’s horrific suffering. Humanitarian workers are in harm’s way.
The combatants in the conflicts request God’s help. They pray (Jupiter) for victory – ‘God willing’. We presume the victory-god they pray to is Mars, the god of war. Jupiter’s money is used to finance the wars. It buys the soldiers and the weapons they use to kill.
In 2020 countries are wracked with financial problems. They have budgets to balance. Economic growth is essential so Mars is making aggressive financial moves and fighting to get his hands on Jupiter’s market wealth. There are financial rows and trade wars.
In March 2020 Mars likes getting drunk and Jupiter likes making money and Jupiter is hoping that an intoxicated Mars isn’t about to blow up the banking system and ignite another financial disaster.
In 2020 there are judicial rows, attacks on judges and harsh legal judgments. Humanity is confronted with major ethical and moral dilemmas.
In 2020 ancient religions preach bygone beliefs that are out-of-step with modern, progressive thinkers so religion ignites conflict, hate and disputation. There’s strife for God’s workers, religion inspired violence, attacks on minority religious groups and burning mosques and churches. Iran is an Islam country with a clerical leadership.
In January 2020 the coronavirus outbreak hit China and in March 2020 the health emergency is adversely impacting world trade, economic growth and travel.
