2022: Year three of the covid-19 pandemic.
In August 2020 in an interview with the Economist Bill Gates predicted that the covid-19 pandemic will be over by the end of 2021.
December 31, 2021: The coronavirus pandemic was far from over.
In an interview in March 2021 with Polish newspaper Gazeta Wyborcza and television broadcaster TVN24 Bill Gates predicts (in regard to the covid-19 pandemic) that: ‘By the end of 2022 we should be basically completely back to normal’.
In December 2021 as Saturn and Uranus in the sky moved to form their third square aspect (on December 24) the coronavirus was surging through Europe, Russia, America and other northern hemisphere countries.
Personal liberties were curtailed as governments imposed lockdowns and civil unrest erupted in popular fury. Information related to the Omicron variant that was raging in South Africa after emerging there in November 2021 dominated news services.
Saturn is the planet of pandemics and in 2021 Saturn square Uranus in the sky saw the coronavirus pandemic restrict people’s freedoms (Uranus). Social discontentment (Uranus) erupted in violent protests (Uranus).
In 2021 the World Health Organization reckoned that the covid-19 pandemic pushed half a billion people into extreme (Uranus) poverty (Saturn).
The coronavirus won’t be eradicated and in 2022 you’re learning to live with covid-19. In 2022 you’re not footloose and fancy free. Some pandemic changes (Saturn-Uranus) are here to stay. What happens where you live is dependent on the actions your government takes. Learning to live with covid can be a well-planned endeavour or a chaotic mess.
The IMF has warned that in 2022 the global economic recovery will be grossly uneven with the economic prospects of most poor countries remaining far worse than those of rich ones.
In 2022 there are vaccine mandates. Booster shots will be required as vaccine efficacy wanes. New antibody and antiviral treatments and better vaccines are on the way. Overseas travel will require a vaccine passport. New coronavirus variants will disrupt and change the rules; and restrictions to personal freedoms will keep social discontentment simmering.
But Saturn’s despondency, dejection, gloom and despair will dissipate as Jupiter and Neptune weave their magic to create an atmosphere vibrating with hope, optimism and great expectation.
Saturn is square Uranus in the sky all year and from February 11 to June 30 and from September 7 to January 15, 2023 Jupiter in the sky – the planet of expansion, finances, trade, tourism, hope and optimism – is conjunction Neptune – the planet of idealism, great expectations, schemes and aviation and hope and optimism are back big time.
In 2022 economies are opening and lockdown are a thing of the past and, as hope and optimism surge, you can bet your bottom dollar that Jupiter’s expansion impulse and desire for abundance will escalate into euphoric expectation and drive spectacular economic growth, rising prices and an investment boom. Neptune’s fantasy of choice is making easy money.
