Aquarius is a developing story.
With Aquarius came knowledge and an invitation to get smart and apply research based knowledge to human conduct and endeavor.
Behavior is what people do. It causes everything except natural disasters such as hurricanes, blizzards, storms, floods, droughts and earthquakes.
With Aquarius came big data, technology data, digital data, genomic data, artificial intelligence, technology driven research, risk management on multiple levels and rapid change.
With Aquarius came a new economic agenda (Jupiter-Saturn) and a new way of negotiating economic, trade and investment agreements.
With Aquarius came a new infrastructure plan for bigger and better cities and the need for millions of construction workers (Mars) to build them.
And with Aquarius came robotics (Uranus) and robots are transforming the work place. They’ll either save the world economy from stagnation or put millions of low skilled workers out of a job.
The world in 2019
In the Sun section of Aquarius (1881-2188) countries and groups of countries are jostling for economic and military power and competing for prestige and national pride.
Nations are locked in titanic struggles. They’re striving for superiority, dominance, supremacy, a winning edge and gold medals.
Military dominance, trade dominance and technological dominance represent power, influence and leadership. Who is going to be the world’s political and economic superpower in 20 years time?
The political agenda involves political ideologies, democratic elections, power struggles and feuding. It moves the world forward.
Cooperation, consensus and bipartisanship pave the way for progress.
In the Pluto Period of Aquarius, with the precessional pointer currently forming a square aspect with progressed Pluto, there’s great division and disunity.
It’s a dangerous moment defined by subtle forces, coercion, threats to democracy, dictators, cybercrime, the suppression of facts, misinformation and disinformation campaigns. The spiritual fact-checkers can’t keep up.
A tremendous battle, that began in the distant past, is being fought between the forces of darkness and the legions of light. The world’s battle fields are soaked in blood but now, in 2019, the conflict has shifted to cyberspace and the internet.
In the Pluto Period your enemy is a guy typing on a computer. S/he’s spreading disinformation and disinformation campaigns are designed to manipulate the truth and influence the way you think and live. Then, when you eventually discover that what you believed was a lie, you feel foolish and label yourself a fool.
The evidence reveals that Lower-Pluto and his cohorts – the materialists, atheists, truth manipulators and disinformers – are playing humanity for a fool.
This astrological fact should spark a degree of concern.
America’s Aquarian Age chart progressed to December 31, 2019Chart data is: January 19, 1881 at 3.56.42pm EST (77W01; 38N53)
The progressed aspects formed by the planets in the Aquarian Age chart have a global influence but the area of national life they directly impact is specified by a country’s Aquarian Age chart.
Progressed Sun is parallel birth chart Mercury
The Sun is the planet of politics, world leaders, political leadership, the political agenda, celebrity and celebrities.
Mercury is the planet of education, science, intellectual endeavor, journalists, reporters, writers, words, talk and controversy.
Progressed Sun parallel birth chart Mercury forecasts political controversies, public disagreement, heated discussion, non-stop talking by the politicians and the occasional words of praise.
The key issues are education, science, the role of science in determining political policy, the role of journalists, the role of the press in the public discourse, and freedom of speech.
It’s the Age of Knowledge and everyone thinks they know everything. The voice of authority and expert commentator are blindly believed.
When the listening audience is told something a dozen times it’s inclined to think its true.
Words, whether right or wrong, have great power.
This aspect reaches peak power in August 2020.
Progressed Mars is parallel birth chart Saturn
Mars is the planet of strife, violence, aggressive force, disputes, the military, police officers, accidents, fires, mechanics and manufacturing.
Saturn is the planet of orthodoxy, conservatism, protectionism, security, safety, economy, falling prices, the agriculture sector and weather.
Their progressed parallel aspect forecasts war and other disasters, land disputes, cold-warring, coal-wars, security alerts, harsh security measures, walls, barriers, razor-wire, feuding farmers, fear mongering, dangerous debt levels, destructive traditions, hard-line conservatism, poverty inspired violence, starvation and disease, climate-change warring, storms, floods, famines, fear, anger, rage, anguish, loss, hardship and despair.
Human hate inflicts death, destruction and unstoppable suffering; climate change is strongly linked to catastrophic weather events; and trade deficits lead to protectionist policies and tariff wars.
Mars and Saturn mark for terrifying violence, scary dangers, bombs, explosions and gun shots – run for your life and flee the danger.
In our 2018 forecast we wrote: ‘Mars is the planet of fires and wildfires – the science is solid – and in 2018 major fires events will destroy property, landscapes and people’s lives.’ In 2019 the situation seems even worse.
And: ‘Progressed Mars parallel birth chart Saturn forecasts war fears, a cold war, massive building and infrastructure projects, cost saving measures in the manufacturing sector, a manufacturing slowdown, destructive weather events, natural disasters and harsh suffering. There won’t be a shortage of anger and grief.’ In 2019 nothing has changed.
This aspect reaches peak power August 26, 2020.
Progressed Mars is parallel progressed Pluto
Mars is the planet of strength, missiles, guns, bombs, the gun lobby, militarism, sex, competition, gambling, alcohol, vice, banditry and predatory practices.
Pluto is the planet of groups, human-rights groups, cooperation, coercion, disunity, abhorrent behavior, crime, corruption, misinformation, atheism, nuclear weapons, drastic events, radio, television, websites and internet.

Lower-Pluto and his thugs stalk the dark web. The division on the world stage is dangerously high. China and Russia are making subtle and not so subtle military and other moves in their regions. And getting drunk is one way of dealing with the mental torment inflicted by Pluto’s obsession with death and destruction.
Every crime has a perpetrator and victim so Mars and Pluto are crime fighting through law enforcement agencies like Interpol and the FBI; and they’re combating disinformation, sexism and extremist propaganda too.
This aspect reaches peak power November 22, 2021.
Progressed Mars inconjunct birth chart Moon
Mars is the planet of guns, bombs and fires; the Moon is the planet of the common people – the ordinary, everyday folk – the family, home life, groceries and basic commodities – food and water.
Their progressed inconjunct aspect forecasts civilian casualties in the fighting; random acts of violence; violent attacks on civilians; food used as a weapon of war; domestic violence and burning homes.
Volatile aggression has a constructive or destructive intent. It either builds or destroys. When it turns harsh and brutal there’s no limit to the harm and damage it inflicts.
This aspect reached peak power in June 2018 and ends October 31, 2019. Its legacy is written in the blood of its innocent civilians.
Progressed Venus is conjunction progressed Saturn

Security and your right to live and work in safety – free from fear – is a central social issue. It has permeated every area of life. Refugees and asylum seekers flee dangerous places. They just want to live in safety.
Fear is used by politicians to gain political advantage. It keeps people silent. It’s the most destructive feeling you can allow yourself to feel.
Hardship is a matter of poverty, disease and homelessness. Struggle Street is where people without a job or home live.
This aspect reached peak power in February 2018 and will end February 3, 2021.
Progressed Jupiter is trine birth chart Uranus
Jupiter is the planet of finances, currencies, higher prices, trade, religion, treaties, arbitration, the courts, publishing, advertising, laughter and good fellowship.

When an event can’t be independently verified Neptune blames the other person, group or country just to creat a state of confusion.
Neptune has a strong desire to get something for nothing and is easily tricked and deceived. Performance enhancing drugs can give a winning edge but make sure you don’t get caught.
This aspect reached peak power in October 2017 and ends in November 2036.
What’s new in 2019?
There are five new major progressions commencing in 2019.

It’s a dangerous moment for women. They’re venting anger and fighting for the right to live their lives free from violence.
There’s so much bad stuff going on. #Metoo and Time’s Up are social movements targeting sexual violence but domestic violence against women and girls is endemic in Pakistan, sexism is international, and while female genital mutilation is illegal in many countries it’s still practiced in Africa, Asia and the Middle East.

And now Mars is about to speed up the pace of technological change.
