Chart-check: 2021 Sun cycle

Sun conjunction Venus is the chart’s prominent feature highlighting the role of women, women leaders and the arts. The chart forecasts important events involving women, a more friendly and conciliatory atmosphere and a gradual normalization of social activity.

In the Aquarian Age chart Venus is parallel Mars, sextile (opportunity) Jupiter and trine (luck) Uranus; and Venus is square Jupiter in the Jupiter cycle and sesquisquare Neptune in the Neptune cycle.

Sun conjunction Neptune highlights visionary schemes, exaggeration, chaos and confusion and events involving the corporate sector, big pharma (and vaccines), airlines and the aviation sector, oil, inflation, drugs, marketing, promotions, stocks/shares, films, dramatic art, bubbles, fraud and scams. 

In the Aquarian Age chart Mercury sextile (opportunity) Neptune starts July 4, 2021; and the Neptune cycle is active all year.

Sun sextile (opportunity) Pluto forecasts a trend towards international cooperation and the healing of divisions and events involving groups, teamwork, dictators, inversion, misinformation, mass abductions and crime.

In the Aquarian Age chart Mars is parallel Pluto and Mercury semisquare Pluto starts June 24, 2021.

Mars conjunction Moon in the Sun cycle forecasts violent attacks on the common people, domestic violence, accidents and fires; and Saturn square Uranus forecasts extreme poverty, economic disruption, social upheaval, civil unrest, protests, vaccine shortages, virus variants, loss of liberty and extreme weather events. This event trend is pronounced with the Saturn cycle active all year and the in-sky Saturn-Uranus square at peak power on June 14 and December 24, 2021.

Saturn usually plays it safe but when he’s square Uranus he’ll throw caution to the wind. In 2020, with Saturn square Uranus in the Jupiter-Saturn conjunction chart, your safety was threatened by the coronavirus and irresponsible human actors (Uranus) who wouldn’t follow the precautionary measures needed to contain its spread.

Saturn is not a pleasant planet – the coronavirus pandemic proved that – and in 2021 the social and psychological toll of the covid crisis will be more obvious; and historical evidence reveals that past pandemics have led to social upheaval and Saturn square Uranus in the sky in 2021-22 sets the scene for global social disorder.

In October 2020 an IMF investigation involving 133 countries from 2001 to 2018 found that unrest surged about 14 months after the onset of disease, reaching a peak after 24 months: And the more unequal a society, the more upheaval it experienced. The fund warned of a vicious circle in which civil unrest further increases hardship which, in turn, feeds more discontentment and protest.

Global astrology charts are reference maps that don’t directly intervene in world affairs. The harmonious and discordant energy-events they map express through human actors who, as catalysts, cause so-called good and bad events to occur.

The Sun cycle has a 12 month time frame and the national events and developments it scripts are easy to track in real-time. Just remember that most of the news stories given media attention are irrelevant in the scheme of things.
