In July 2020 the first wave of the coronavirus continued its surge and as lockdown measures were eased outbreaks – called spikes – ripped through cities and states. The case count hit 13 million, and then 14 million. In America, Brazil and India the virus was out of control.
The second wave of covid-19 is timed for February and March 2021. It will be triggered by Mars conjunction Uranus in the sky on January 20.
Mars is the astro-signature of the coronavirus and Saturn is the signature for its pandemic and progressed Mars parallel birth chart Saturn in the Aquarian Age chart is at peak power on August 25, 2020.
August 1 to August 19 is under the influence of the high-discord Cancer lunation > the Sun-Moon conjunction is opposition Jupiter (banks and finances), opposition Saturn (security issues, storms, floods, loss and covid-19), trine Neptune (corporations, schemes, uncertainty, investors and airlines) and opposition Pluto (drastic events, lockdowns, coercive action and division).
On August 8 progressed Jupiter square Saturn in the Jupiter cycle starts. This high-discord energy-event reaches peak power on September 13 and stimulates Jupiter conjunction Saturn in the sky.
Progressed Neptune square Saturn in the Neptune cycle scripts a dominant theme in August, 2020 > peak power date is August 29 > Neptune is the planet of fraud, oil, gas, airlines, investors and chaos > he spreads confusion through human actors like Donald Trump; Saturn is the planet of loss, recession, poverty, hardship, panic, falls, storms and flood.
Progressed Pluto semisquare Sun in the Pluto cycle reaches peak power on September 14 > Pluto is the planet of lockdowns, coercion programs, corruption and division > Sun is the planet of politics, politicians, governments and world leaders > progressed Sun square Moon in the Aquarian Age chart is gathering momentum.
Three high-discord aspects in the Mars cycle will see outbreaks of strife, conflict and warfare and major accidents and fires. They forecast spikes in the coronavirus pandemic as it defies containment in some countries.
