I have been delving back into astrology of late. It has always fascinated me and now that my 20-year hiatus is over I am digging in on a deeper level. Interesting how the pandemic has brought me back to things that brought me such great joy so long ago. Here is a little background then I dive into my Astrology Predictions for 2021.
What is Mundane Astrology
The astrology I employ is not your typical newspaper astrology. This is the deeper study of the planets and how they relate to happenings in our world. This particular branch is called Mundane astrology. The name is derived from the Roman word Mundus meaning, “the world”. This type of astrology has been around for over 5000 years, but the texts that began to define it as a stand-alone discipline began with Ptolemy. His stand-out work known as “Tetrabiblios” was written in the second century AD. This is the astrology Kings and Popes had at their disposal in ancient times.
There are other branches of this type of astrology which I will be elaborating on at a later time. Right now I would like to put out my first prediction based on this study. I used historical data from star charts and connected those with what was happening in the world in the past. The data used spans over 1000 years. I have correlated it to what is happening in our stars at this time and updated it to be relevant to our current world. These predictions cover the entire timeframe from February to December. I do think that the largest developments will happen in June, but it could take until December for the public to become widely aware.
What’s Happening in the Stars
We have the rare occurrence of the square of Saturn/Uranus that happens three times this year. The first was February 17 the second is June 14 and the third December 24. The square this summer on June 14th is the most important one. It happens against the backdrop of the lunar eclipse on May 26th and the Solar Eclipse on June 10th. It is also affected by the aspect of Pluto on the North Node. Saturn, Uranus, and Neptune are all in aspect to the Center of the Galaxy. In the chart of the US, Saturn and Uranus natal positions are conjunct the North Node in the 3rd house Gemini and Pluto is conjunct the US natal Pluto in the 11th house Capricorn. All of these are important to consider, I have tried my best to take it all in and distill it down into predictions for you.
Astrological Predictions for 2021
I see the economic issues continuing with unemployment rising even higher. There will be a push from the government for training in trade positions when Biden promotes his infrastructure program. This will be promoted as putting America back to work. Blue-collar workers will be the heroes of the campaign. I see government programs for retraining workers into blue-collar trade positions.
I think we will see major weather-related issues this summer. They will once again put emphasis on the Texas Power Grid and its mismanagement and reliability issues. Most likely there will be extreme weather events all across the south-central US and to the west including Alaska. I also foresee a more active hurricane season. The northeast will see weather extremes and could possibly experience a very early cold weather event. There is also a slight possibility that Maine and Nova Scotia could see a hurricane on their shores this season, this rare event could cause some serious issues.
There will be news on the Capitol insurrection investigation. The investigative teams will stumble across something that was trying to remain hidden leading them into a new area of investigation. The discovery will be accidental but it will be a key discovery.
Trump will once again take over the news headlines. Most likely regarding the outcome of the investigation into the Arizona election results. He will use this to attempt to hold the spotlight once again and retain control of the Republican party.
There will begin to be a realization of “The Big Lie” among Trump supporters, but it will remain as an undercurrent and gossip. It will begin to very slowly erode his support but there will be no real resolution to this issue until 2023.
There will be an announcement of a new investigation into the Trump family real estate dealings, this time going back many years, possibly as many as 30 or 40 years. This won’t come from the government of the US. I think this is going to come from a city or state agency.
COVID cases will surge in the southern US because of relaxed restrictions. Expect numbers to climb until Mid-June to Mid-July.
The World Stage
The trouble with Russia and election interference is going to escalate to a very serious point. Tensions will be high enough that there is a concern of war on the horizon. I don’t think it will get to that point though. I believe Putin’s health will have an issue, or Russia itself will experience health issues. He will possibly disappear from public view for a while if it is Putin, or it could be a huge surge in COVID in Russia. The health issues could be with Biden, but I am seeing more Russia than the US in this one. Whatever it is, I think it will be health-related and enough to take focus from tensions between nations to let things cool off before we get to the point of war. It has also been brought to my attention that there is a possibility this could be a cyberwar. With Pluto’s involvement that is entirely possible.
I believe that the unrest in Isreal and Palestine will flare up and there will be military action in the region. This might cause world leaders to be forced to align themselves with one side or the other. This will not be good for any country as there is no “good” choice. These alignments are going to cause long-term tensions between nations.
We are living through an astrological time period of major planetary periods. Huge shifts in public policy and thinking are at our doorstep. Last year’s conjunction Jupiter and Saturn is called the Great Conjunction for a reason. In the past, this conjunction has ushered in huge societal changes. The lesser-known conjunction of the south nodes of Saturn and Pluto in Capricorn has never happened in recorded history. The last time they came close was over 2000 years ago in 783 CE. This was the rise of Charlemagne and the formation of the Holy Roman Empire.
This is a turning point in our civilization. Saturn Pluto conjunctions tend to shape the collective infrastructure. When they involve the nodes they shape movements within civilizations. In 1518 when only one node was involved in the conjunction it shook religion and culture to its core. This was the time of the Protestant Reformation with Martin Luther and John Calvin. (This was the breaking point for the Catholic Church’s hold over Europe and the founding moment for the Luthern and Calvinist religions.) This conjunction will usher in a change in society that we will see develop over the coming years. I see that movement leaning toward a people-centered society with more consideration given for the individual’s well-being over the capitalistic society we currently have.
What Can I Do?
To wrap it up, we are living in a time of great change. This level of change hasn’t been seen before in the written history of mankind. No one likes change, it is difficult and we will see resistance along the way. We might even experience it ourselves. The best advice I can give to you is to realize change will come, even if you resist. It just makes it more difficult for you when you resist. Be kind to yourself and others. Realize this is hard for everyone and you are not alone. Seek out support from your community and friends. If you can’t find it, perhaps it is up to you to create it.
Also, remember that we are privileged to witness this. We have been chosen to be here at this time for a reason. It is an honor to bear witness and to be an actor, no matter how small the part, on the stage of life during such major societal shifts.
