On May 25, 2020 Mars in the sky moved to form a conjunction aspect with Neptune and in Minneapolis, Minnesota a police officer kills George Floyd; and with Jupiter conjunction Pluto in the sky and progressed Moon semisquare progressed Uranus in the Aquarian Age chart people across America took to the streets to protest the injustice of his killing. Neptune’s video images and photographs launched Black Lives Matter into a global phenomenon and forced America to confront its racial history. It was a watershed moment as Uranus, Neptune and Pluto joined forces to propel the charge for cultural change.
At the same time the global coronavirus case and death counts continued to surge while countries cautiously eased lockdown measures. In June 2020 the epicenter of the covid-pandemic moved to the Americas with surging death and case counts in the US, Brazil and Chile; and with the shadow of an annular solar eclipse on June 21 falling across India the pandemic there was turning into a national disaster.
With social distancing measures being ignored the Black Lives Matter protests became virus spreaders > there’s a two week delay before symptoms appear so the consequences won’t be known till early July; and on June 15 with Jupiter conjunction Pluto in the sky America’s Supreme Court, in a landmark decision, ruled that employers who fire workers for being gay or transgender are breaking the country’s civil rights laws.
Mars conjunction Neptune in the sky ends July 3 and progressed Moon semisquare progressed Uranus in the Aquarian Age chart ends July 20.
