Capricorn Solstice 2016/17
Understand how the Capricorn Solstice will affect nations worldwide.
A new cardinal season has come to us giving more attention to the night (to the feminine) if you live in the Northern hemisphere, or to the day (to the masculine) if living in the opposite. Now natives of Earth will witness what has been called the winter or summer solstice, when the Sun ingress into either Cancer or Capricorn, where day and night are now of roughly offbeat in duration over earth’s equator, initiating a fresh pivotal beginning in tropical astrology. While in northern hemisphere, people will experience the beginning of winter (the shortest days in the year), in the southern hemisphere there will be summer time, when the Sun stays longer in the skies, that is, the longest days in the year.
As an international astrologer to this specific website, I must focus on both directions the solstices take. The importance of astrological charts that mark the beginning of a new cardinal season is millennial. The Solar seasons are exceptional references in the Solar year, they suggest mainly turning points over the year and are best used for the mundane, applied with charts of people in power, lunations, eclipses, etc. “Solstice” equals the symbolic combination of Latin Sol (Sun) and Latin Sistere (standoff). Whenever someone is saying “summer/winter solstice”, the person is actually metaphorically saying as if the “Sun standstills” in the related season. Day and night are now disparate in length, where either day or night prevails more than the other in a hemisphere, symbolizing life harvesting preferences, but not because it wants, but because it is vital and a necessary condition of the moment. People of Earth are now more rational to judge, to experience and to delight Earth’s pleasure and resources. These are the two times where the inclination of Earth’s rotational axis has maximum effect.
The world at large – Predictions
Uranus rules over plane crashes in ingress charts, and in opposition with Jupiter, that could mean many more than usual. And that we are seen for over the last 3 months.
The cardinal T-Square involves a series of abrupt changes and new starts; Jupiter gives us a sense of superiority and morally correct. In opposite to Uranus, we can sense a form of totalitarianism taking place in some parts of the world as Saturn ensures with a sextile to Jupiter and a trine to Uranus. But I guess this is an opportunity to explore and study the opposite part, so later the wheel of life would conspire in favor for the individual well-informed. Uranus in the chart square Pluto by exact 4°00’ degrees from each other, and Pluto conspires against off or totally in favor, and when it does, it does with strong intensity and fever. As for Saturn, it will strength Uranus form of totalitarian kind of government, while it will give hope to the liberals as it sextile Jupiter, giving a sense that for this something must be worked out first. However…
This is a strong beginning for many nations and individuals, starts that will forever change the social structure and foundation, changing abruptly traditions in cultures in which freedom (Uranus) is neglected (Saturn) by blind faith (Jupiter); The greater side of this is Jupiter, of course. The planet favors peace and a conversation of education, instead of war and silence between the parts.
Mars is conjunct South Node; indicating an old war of nations which could cease-fire. Too much Pisces plus the approach conjunction to Neptune, that seems to be a trap. However, seeing the chart of a country things would be simpler.
United States of America – Predictions
The chart for Washington D.C shows Sagittarius rising. I always thought the USA as being a nation of natal Sagittarius rising (the first actual chart for the country), since kid I’ve visited the country and always admire their expansiveness and talkative way to make themselves look higher than other nations, and being from a different region of the world, we get to analyze better than those living in it.
Sagittarius is rising in the ingress chart above, thus the chart is valid for the next 6 months.
Let’s remind ourselves that in the chart above, Obama is the Sun, while the 10th house represents the new presidency and party taking the new direction of the nation.
The country seems happy and extraordinarily satisfied; although that may not be true to the whole, Sagittarius is rising, giving us the impression of a really happy and independent society. Even when Capricorn is a cardinal sign, Sagittarius is a mutable sign, suggesting the chart is not proper for a grand initiation of any kind, including a new presidency. However, the fire Sagi is somewhat adventurous; the nation is indeed feeling they are going to experience a different kind of collective high.
Scaring look USA; With malefic Saturn rising, people of the world may think of the USA at the moment as going through a tough situation, one that will hold its energy terrible to the ground, as if people from outside are witnessing some sort of karma coming back. Saturn in the 1st house also indicates disappointments of the nation’s will. While the Sun marks and essential role to the whole world, a main role that will have its effect worldwide. The Sun makes hard aspects to the Moon, Venus and Midheaven, not so over Venus. The new country’s president looks like is scaring many countries along the way while discussing race, nations and poverty. Saturn here won’t allow much of the Sun to shine in the 1st house, thus it will force the Sun to be much more modest and perhaps rude as possible. Although the 1st house (Aries house) in mundane and solstice charts does not mean the president of a country, it says much about how people see the nation while an authority figure in power, which will be the case of the 10th house (Capricorn house) – where in the chart above, the Sun is square to it (the Midheaven). It also seems, Obama (Sun) is feeling limited and intimidated (Saturn) little by little the new direction of the nation’s destiny, perhaps even feeling incapable.
USA new Reputation; The Midheaven is whatever nation’s reputation, which is always reinforced each winter/summer solstices. This time for the USA the Moon in Libra in the 10th house, it seems people are actually really divided; however, it seems destiny is favoring the new president position at the highest energy level, as Jupiter is also found in the 10th house. But the Moon-Jupiter conjunction is known for its abandonment role, as if the new direction of the country won’t allow others to come by together. Jupiter opposes Uranus in the 4th house. Let’s talk about that. Jupiter in the 10th house is really good for mundane charts; it favors the party in power tremendously, it doubles the country’s power
The possible assassination of Trump; Again, let’s see the country’s main destiny. The ruler of the 10th house is Mercury, which is retrograde in Capricorn and is conjunct Pluto in the 2nd house, meaning the country is destined to financial failure, or at least, a deep transformation awaits the nation where survival issues and economical independence is concerned. Mercury is hard on this chart, it is not at easy, and it is really uncomfortable among the planets at this specific time, it also square Jupiter in the 10th, which means people will blame the recent election, of course. The combination may also indicate the president may be in danger of being assassinated (Pluto) during a speech (Mercury) concerning country’s survival or financial administration (2nd house). The attempting murder could also happen during a ceremony of celebration, as Mercury-Pluto conjunction is located at the house of Venus. If that happens, Hilary will be what astrologers at ISI predicted, her victory, one way or another.
Watch for the ruler of the 12th house. It is Pluto of course, and the planet is located in conjunction with the ruler of the 10th house of presidency, which is, again, Mercury. This is not a mere or random forecast. I took some time studying the events that took the assassination of Abraham Lincoln for example, and there are plenty of patterns that indeed confirm, generalizing a greater possibility. The Ingress in Capricorn of 1864 also showed patterns alike, and although the ingress in Capricorn back that time had a cardinal sign rising (Capricorn) in Washington D.C. (meaning it would be valid for only 3 months), the next Aries ingress of 1985 had assured the configuration when the ruler of 10th house Uranus in conjunction with ruler of the 12th house Mars of hidden enemy’s. Mars is co-ruler of Scorpio. Not to mention the Mercury-Pluto conjunction in Taurus at the day of his tragic death. Now, take for example the Aries ingress chart for 2017 set for the same capital, we get Saturn-Moon hovering the exactly 10th house. The assassination of Abraham took place when transiting Moon conjunct his natal Moon in Sagittarius. Astrologers and students, you could also observe the many Moon-Saturn configuration in the charts cited.
Trump’s natal chart shows ruler of the 8th house (death) being afflicted by the Uranus/Pluto square, while transiting Saturn is conjunct his natal Moon in Sagittarius.
Another feature of Mercury-Pluto in the 2nd house; is the hidden information about the true country’s economical situation. Also, corruption involving people in power of major authority and dirty money is likely to be on the media soon.
The People’s attention; The Moon represents the people’s attention of the solstice ahead, that is, for the next 6 months that comes with it (as for Sagittarius rising in Washington D.C.). This will concern their own image/status before the world at large. Many are worried that the world will see USA as a new devil’s country. There will exist the need to emotionally equilibrate the nation’s change of direction, also the people’s intellect will be greatly affected. The Uranus opposition Jupiter emphasizes this as both planets are located in cardinal houses. Uranus the revolutionary in the 4th house shows a rebellion in its own land, a revolution will take place as an opposition to the new election (10th house), and the planet also sextile Saturn, which could easy lead to an impeachment, as a form of a “formal rebellion”. Uranus is retrograde in the chart, a few days to station direct, the intensity of the planet is nothing but stronger, leaving a deeper mark on the road. Let’s remind ourselves that Uranus is still square Pluto. People will worry about their new place in the world.
The opposition; is likely to happen literally on streets and from a neighborhood nation, also, a daring publication of some kind or a dramatic point of view of an authority will fragile the people in power, which could easily lead people to fight among themselves. Mars is located in the 3rd house sextile by the Sun in the 1st house of the nativities of the country. Mars in the solstice chart for Washington D.C. rules both the 12th house of secrets enemies and the 5th house of speculation, and for that, the publication’s source may never be known. The attack could also come from allies, once Venus rules the 11th house and it falls in the 1st house but conjunct the 2nd house.
Too much mutable energy in the chart indicates people will be easily influenced by other’s people opinion, people will find that a bliss and easy to adapt. However, the great lack of fixed signs indicates the lack of determination and effort to really make the necessary changes. These 6 months will be more about promoting ideas than really doing them.
This also influenced astrologers worldwide, let’s see why; The astrologers, whom were wrong about the presidency election winner, put a shade among the astrological society at the world at large, giving us a sense that astrology cannot be 100 right when it is about studying possibilities, which are usually/always on spot. “Predicting the future” has become silly and somehow it invokes an immoral sensation. Many astrologers are furious because of this event, and many considered a deep and painful hit against astrologers worldwide. Uranus rules over astrologers, when in the past Saturn was the chief by the time it was ruling both Aquarius and Capricorn. Jupiter the planet of overabundance, in the 10th house, allows a status to grow and expand to the world in quick ways, the benevolent nature acts without regard to principles of good and bad, only to a fair judgment where moral and ethic must be the highest value. The status of astrologers worldwide was hugely affected by such statement that Hillary would win the presidency election of 2016, and it will be for a very long time again.
The last equinox chart in Libra 2016, I said celebrities would have much more prestige than actual heroes, facilitating celebrity Trump to win more votes than an actual Hero of the people, or at least, part of it. (QUOTE HERE)
The combination of Saturn, Jupiter and …. by 2020! (research) favors the anticipation of Trump in power, etc.
