Pakistan 2020-21: Mars conjunction Pluto

The Islamic Republic of Pakistan was born at the same time and date – midnight on August 15, 1947 – as India but at a different place (Karachi). So their charts are different.

Pakistan is the world’s sixth-most populous country with over 207.8 million (2019).

In 1973 it adopted a new constitution which stipulated that all laws are to conform to the injunctions of Islam as laid down in the Quran and Sunnah.

Pakistan is a middle power. It has a semi-industrialized economy; a well integrated agriculture sector; a growing services industry; and the sixth-largest standing armed forces in the world.

It’s also a nuclear power and a declared nuclear weapons state – the only Muslim nation to have that status.

In 2018 Pakistan had an economic crisis. With spiraling current account and fiscal deficits (house 2), dwindling foreign reserves (house 8) and a depreciating currency (house 2) everything was out of balance.

And in 2019 economic growth slowed (Saturn), prices rose (Jupiter), inflation hit 11.4% and there was widespread discontent with Prime Minister Imran Khan’s PTI administration (Sun/Midheaven and house 10).

Progressed Jupiter – cusp ruler of house 8 – was inconjunct birth chart Mars in house 2; progressed Mercury – cusp ruler of house 2 – was square (obstacle) birth chart Sun; progressed Midheaven was sesquisquare (agitation) progressed Jupiter; and progressed Mars was conjunction birth chart Saturn – cusp ruler of house 10.

Pakistan’s chart progressed to December 31, 2020

And progressed Mars – planet of conflict and war – is conjunction progressed Pluto – planet of nuclear weapons – at 14 Leo 51 in house 4 (land and territory). This aspect started February 12, 2020 > reaches peak power February 6, 2022 and ends February 9, 2024. 

On September 29, 2021 progressed Mars (strife and conflict) moves to form a conjunction aspect with birth chart Venus > peak power date is September 18, 2023.

Pakistan is in a similar situation to India. Mars conjunction Pluto in its chart is a dangerous high discord energy-event. Its potential for discord is reinforced by Mars parallel Pluto in the Aquarian Age chart (peak power date is November 21, 2021) and is stimulated each time Mars and Pluto form an aspect in the sky.

Pakistan’s astrodyne report

House 4 (land, homes, agriculture and weather) dominates the chart. Chart and house 4 discord are very high.
