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.
Mars conjunction Jupiter in the sky forecasts…
… strife for the financial sector; financial disputes; a currency war; aggressive financial stimulus; attacks on financial institutions; feuding banks; strife for the church and God’s worker’s; attacks on religion; a Holy War; religion inspired violence; burning churches; bickering at the trade talks; a trade war; escalating violence; increased military spending; a boost to the weapons trade; the judiciary under fire; harsh laws and swift law-making; the publishing of bombshell books; a gambling frenzy; increased sales of alcohol; a shipping-maritime dispute; an attack on a ship; shipping accidents, strife for the cruise liner industry and fires.
Mars and Jupiter aren’t disciplined, restrained or sensible so there’s an atmosphere of excitement, sensation, recklessness, impulsivity and wild optimism; but Jupiter is the planet of arbitration so countries can arbitrate to resolve their conflicts (Mars) and sign peace treaties (Jupiter).

Mars conjunction Jupiter around the globe
Mars conjunction Jupiter forecasts one or two major international events but each country has its own chart which specifies, by the house position of Mars and Jupiter, the area of mundane life directly impacted by their energy-event in the sky.
Each chart forecasts a major national event involving strife, conflict, violence, the military, police, guns, fire or accident; and finances, banks, currencies, trade, religion, legal matter, law, publishing or shipping.
Tracking the big major events via internet and television news services is easy but events of national importance can be difficult to track and identify if you don’t live in the country.
