2022 ANNUAL ASTROSCOPE
by JOHN DELANEY

http://www.delaneyastroscope.com/2021.html

PRELIMINARY STATEMENT
FOR 2020, 2021 and 2022.

Saturn conjuncts Pluto in Capricorn, exactly, on January 12, 2020. Since Clyde Tombaugh at Lowell Observatory in Flagstaff, Arizona discovered Pluto on February 18, 1930, Saturn has conjuncted Pluto only twice, until now:

 

 1) Saturn conjuncted Pluto in Leo on August 10, 1947; and

2) Saturn conjuncted Pluto in Libra on November 7, 1982.

 

Those who lived through these years, felt its energy & remembered its worldly events will most likely be alarmed to know that they will undergo such psychic electricity yet again.

 Those with sophisticated knowledge of astrology will endure further alarm as they realize that Saturn conjunct Pluto in Capricorn colors the entire year of 2020. 2020 represents the balsamic end of the previous Jupiter-Saturn conjunction at 22 degrees Taurus on May 28, 2000 in preparation for the subsequent Jupiter-Saturn conjunction at 0 degrees Aquarius on December 21, 2020. If one asserts that the year before the Jupiter-Saturn conjunction is analogous to the day before a New Moon, Saturn conjunct Pluto in Capricorn represents not only the supremely baneful yet cathartic climax to the Jupiter-Saturn conjunction at 22 Taurus on May 28, 2000, but connotes the indelible karmic coloring of the subsequent cycle – in this case, the twenty-year Jupiter-Saturn cycle from the Jupiter-Saturn conjunction at 0 degrees Aquarius on December 21, 2020 to the Jupiter-Saturn conjunction at 18 Libra on Halloween 2040.

Finally, astrological masters will endure supreme alarm as they recall that the Jupiter-Saturn conjunction at 22 degrees Taurus on May 28, 2000 represents the last of nine Jupiter-Saturn cycles in earth signs, commencing with the Jupiter-Saturn conjunction at 5 degrees Virgo on July 17, 1802. Saturn conjunct Pluto in Capricorn therefore also represents the supremely baneful yet cathartic climax to the complete series of nine Jupiter-Saturn cycles in earth signs in their entirety – excepting the first Jupiter-Saturn cycle in an air sign, when Jupiter conjuncted Saturn at 5 degrees Libra on July 24, 1981, and which overlaps with the last Jupiter-Saturn cycle in an earth sign, Jupiter-Saturn conjunction at 22 degrees Taurus on May 28, 2000. However, will Saturn conjunct Pluto in Capricorn connote the indelible karmic coloring to the complete series of nine Jupiter-Saturn conjunctions in air signs ending with the Jupiter-Saturn conjunction at 28 degrees Aquarius on April 7, 2199?

And, of course, the Pluto Return of the U.S.A. on February 21, 2022, July 11, 2022 and December 28, 2022 does nothing to assuage anybody’s alarm.

ARIES
2022

When Jupiter entered Capricorn in December 2019, your mind focused upon professional issues almost exclusively – shrinking profit margins, more demanding bosses, much more work for a little more money. The upcoming COVID-19 quarantine, a dystopian epic science fiction trilogy, made zero impression on you, despite the fact that its origins were forming in plain sight in the Far East. The possibility that Jupiter leading a massive stellium in Capricorn throughout 2020 could divert your attention from your boss and your job description to the last 220 years of American history struck you as remote. But now, having lived through all of that, as society crawls back to normal throughout 2021 into 2022, you are much more open to believing, “Yes, I can see how all of this is intended to awaken my consciousness for the Pluto Returns of the United States of America throughout 2022.”

But slow down – you got the point. But what does this all mean?

It means more than one can explain in one conversation of any length – a fact that people in a hurry are loathe to hear and unwilling to admit. Some individuals will succumb to slash and burn changes not only to the original agenda but also to “Plan B” in their desperation to rush through or to stop this agenda now and throughout Chariklo in Aquarius from November 2021 through January 2028. Others will cheat outright, now and throughout 2001-KF77 in Aquarius from December 2021 through December 2028. There is money to be made. There are people to see, deals to do. That’s why that Tesla cut ahead of you while you slowed down on the highway on their way to a head-on collision with a police car – and, because you were slowing down, that is why you were safe.

The first thing that you will and must do, yet again, is look backward – not back to the U.S.A. of Alexander Hamilton and Aaron Burr in Weehawken, New Jersey, but, as Retrograde Venus in Capricorn during December 2021 and January 2022 suggests, back to you and your bosses at your job when Jupiter entered Capricorn in December 2019. What did you think then? What do you think now? What is the significance of what has changed?

Don’t be ashamed to hold onto the guardrail – the churning tumult of the ship of state is making everybody woozy. Resist temptations to indulge negativity. Not the dictates of nation states, but the common sense of worldly circumstances brought about by COVID-19, demand an attitude and worldview of austerity during Pluto conjunct Amycus in Capricorn from December 2020 to February 2023. Realize that the extremely unwieldy, obtuse and expensive logistic and financial problems of the later stages of the COVID-19 quarantine and the impatient eradication of municipal law enforcement services at the end of the George Floyd protests will flummox even the most experienced legislators in the city, state, province and country during Pholus conjunct 2002-GZ32 from December 2020 through November 2022. Know who you are, based upon who you were when you were growing up, as you deal with more experienced adults with their well-defined political interests, which they will also further as aggressively and as secretively as possible, during Saturn in Aquarius from December 2020 through February 2023.

Money will be tight during Ceres conjunct the North Node during January. Hold your ground until the battle begins anew with new players on both teams during Cyllarus opposite Chariklo conjunct 2001-KF77 conjunct 2001-BL41 during and after Christmas. As for office, corporate and national politics, jump to no conclusions. Even if the standoff is ten million to Mitch McConnell (especially about money), Jupiter square the North Node in late December reminds Aries the Ram that it matters not who has the moral high road but who has the power of the purse, both now and throughout the North Node in Taurus from January 2022 to June 2023. Be warned: The baneful power that the purse yields becomes more apparent as Pluto trines the North Node from January to March, while your ability to change the course of events in either small or large ways outright disappears as Jupiter transits Pisces from January through April. Don’t overestimate your own importance.

And don’t be in a rush! Chariklo conjunct 2001-KF77 from December 2021 through April 2027 warns that the overall environment both now and for years to come will bear an overload of people in a hurry – why? Because these people will either be extremely desperate or deeply dishonest. When you notice that certain dishonest individuals gain unfair advantage and garner unearned wealth (“unjust enrichment”), then 1998-BU48 in Libra from November 2021 through March 2022 asserts that you should stand up for what is right and to report what you know to law enforcement.

Moreover, do not, under any circumstances, succumb to nihilistic, misanthropic, anarchistic desperation about your city, state, province, country, society at large, humanity or planet during Asbolus conjunct Bienor square Neptune from December 2021 through June 2022. It is imperative that you maintain a neutral perspective concerning matters both personal and small or impersonal and large. Ten to ten is the same score as one million to one million – most likely more than a million as and throughout 2001-BL41 in Aquarius from December 2021 through January 2024. Keeping this in mind, keep copious distance and shun all locals who fly off the handle about political matters or, worse, controversial crimes, as the North Node squares 2003-WL7 opposite Crantor during February and March.

Well-regulated personal energy and intellectual discipline brings you professional innovation that may earn you new clients and a raise during 2002-GZ32 sextile Jupiter sextile Uranus conjunct Albion during February. That same well-regulated personal energy attracts meaningful business partnerships as well as meaningful romances that double as or enhance all existing business partnerships as Venus conjuncts Mars in Capricorn in February.

View your loyalty to your city, state, province or country through the lens of your nuclear family as Cyllarus in Cancer opposes Pluto conjunct Amycus in Capricorn from February to May. Bloodline rules heritage!

Maintaining that well-regulated personal energy becomes even more important as you encounter couples and people motivated more by ideas than money as Venus conjuncts Mars in Aquarius in March. Plan no projects which involve money with people who consider only intellectual issues as they disregard financial concerns – especially as circumstances at your job force you to outperform with Herculean effort during Aphidas opposite Jupiter conjunct Nessus from February to March.

Do not let issues about a confused personal or sexual identity to undermine your drive to make money. 1999-OX3 in Taurus from March 2022 through March 2027 denotes that you want money, you need money and you want to get money. Your conscious mind concentrates upon motor skills and – BAM! – money money money. Chiron conjunct 2000-QB243 from February 2022 through May 2024 is an introspective process which questions the face that you show to the world in an extroverted manner – the Talking Heads’ “Seen and Not Seen” from Remain in Light expresses this sentiment very well. Keep those two inclinations separate and far apart. Do not question the gun that shoots the bison which is both your clothing and your dinner.

You must know what your products and services cost you, and what money you need in profit in order to succeed in business, in order to negotiate effectively during Saturn in Aquarius trine Asbolus conjunct Bienor conjunct 1996-TL66 from March to June. Realize, moreover, that certain bosses will seek to offer certain products and services by disregarding, or writing off, the cost of labor, as Okyrhoe conjunct Jupiter conjunct Neptune squares Asbolus conjunct Bienor conjunct 1996-TL66 in April. If that is so, from where will your raise originate? Really! You know the value of your labor – and, on top of that, bosses cannot deny that you do a truly outstanding job throughout 1998-BU48 trine Pluto conjunct Amycus from April through August. The phrase is “value-added” – not “value-subtracted.”

College students, high-school students and young adults, especially women, become attuned to political and social issues involving mass consciousness, including all types of religious revivals, during Okyrhoe conjunct Neptune from March 2022 to March 2023. In the beginning, such college students, high-school students and young adults will attend large-scale public rallies together with their friends for safety as Okyrhoe conjunct Jupiter conjunct Neptune sextile the North Node in April – but, really, they should continue to do so together, never by themselves. If you travel amongst such groups, don’t be angry at the police presence as Hylonome sextiles Okyrhoe conjunct Jupiter conjunct Neptune in April. Such police are not only nowhere near as strong as they had been even five years ago, but they are also protecting you. Show gratitude as well as respect.

Moreover, maintain intellectual sovereignty both as an individual and as a group as all sorts of organizations promulgate all types of propaganda as Okyrhoe conjunct Jupiter conjunct Neptune trines 1998-VG44 conjunct 2001-SQ73 in April. Such proselytizers already know that publicly available facts contradict their ideological positions as Saturn squares the North Node in April – there really is no reason for you to correct them. After all, they are trying to lie to you in order to get you to join their lame cause!

Stay deeply in touch with the truth so that you may be present to witness a glorious victory for the history of the U.S.A. during Jupiter conjunct Venus sextile Pluto conjunct Amycus, both stationing from Direct to Retrograde Motion, in late April. And what is the truth? View your loyalty to your city, state, province or country through the lens of your nuclear family, then that truth will become self-evident during Jupiter conjunct Venus trine Cyllarus in late April, “Root root root for the home team – because this is our home, this is our team and we are doing to win for Mom, flag, city and the homeland!” Bloodline rules heritage!

The big shift from everybody and you – to – nobody except you, occurs during Jupiter in Aries from May to October . . . almost. This is just a trial run for when Jupiter transits Aries in early 2023 – and for when Neptune transits Aries from 2025 to 2039. Find out what doesn’t work. Find out what does – and learn how to work it to the max!

On one level, when somebody asks, “What’s the big idea?” during Cyllarus in Leo from June 2022 through July 2039, you will have a very big, ambitious answer. There is no reason to be shy – be like the Sun at Noon. Just make sure that that big idea, which should take you years and years to manifest, is positive in the extreme.

On the flip side, complaints by, within and about your family, neighborhood, city, state, province and country, specifically against the U.S.A. and Canada, commence during Bienor in Cancer from July 2022 through January 2023, and try to grow. Be part of the solution – not the problem.

The masses looking for an easy payoff will be talking up bitcoin and cryptocurrency – but Uranus conjunct the North Node from July to September has a much deeper message for Aries the Ram. Crypto is a means of exchange driven by and amongst the capital markets outside of your control, but Uranus conjunct the North Node in your natal 2nd house of inner values impels you to be in charge of what you do to earn money. It is not a new tool but an old message from Karl Marx: Own your own means of production. Own the factory which makes the wealth and the warehouse which contains it.

As for the cult of bitcoin and cryptocurrency: Saturn square Uranus from September to November does not care whether you hold Loonies, Dollars, Pesos or Crypto, negotiations about everything from Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, President Joe Biden, President Andrés Manuel Lopez Obrador, Amazon’s Jeff Bezos and Tesla’s Elon Musk on down yield contentious politics.

As you consolidate recent gains during Retrograde Jupiter from August to November, business partners, your lawyer and affable yet competitive rivals clue you into laws and regulatory policies that you ignore only at your own peril throughout 1998-BU48 in Libra from September 2022 through August 2047. Indeed, some of these competitive rivals brag that they intend to flout such laws and invite you to join their “political cause” as 2002-VR130 squares 2002-CR46 conjunct the South Node opposite Uranus conjunct the North Node during August and September. Resist. The law-and-order attitude will become much more prevalent and dominant. Do not disregard.

A disturbing, tragic episode provides an extremely harsh wake-up call for your family, neighborhood, city, state, province or country during Asbolus in Cancer from mid-September to mid-October.

Road rage amongst automobiles on highways, sidewalk rage between pedestrians and motor scooter scofflaws and train rage about subway and light-rail seating accelerates and escalates as 2003-WL7 in Virgo from October through February 2023. However, avoid taking premature practical action regarding such public hazards as Thereus conjuncts Aphidas from September 2022 through August 2023. You don’t want this initiative to fail from indifference. Wait until support is overwhelming.

The timing for such rage is very bad. While the rage that we saw on the streets of the U.S.A. during 2020 originated from specific events and logical reasons, the rage that people exhibit as Stationary Mars squares Neptune during October and November will emerge from deeply held, unconscious and irrational psychological depths. Making matters worse, there exists manipulation behind the scenes, both on social media (Facebook again? Maybe – maybe not) and on the street, seeking to disrupt civil order on a national basis for selfish political benefit during 2001-SQ73 opposite Pluto conjunct Amycus from December 2022 through February 2023. Anger, once unleashed, cannot become restrained. Count to ten – then count to one hundred. Release no anger which will inflict another person. Yield the street to strangers who will not control themselves.

Keeping such irrational psychology in mind, businesses that hoped to launch initiatives during the summer of 2020 do so during Retrograde Mars in Gemini from November 2022 to Martin Luther King Day 2023. Some of these businesses absolutely clean up financially as Retrograde Jupiter in very late Pisces during November, including spinoffs and a seafood alternative to Chick-fil-A or Popeye’s. Invest in, rather than follow, crowds. A public notice from the Board of Health on the restaurant’s front door is the kiss of death during 2001-SQ73 square Elatus during November. Religious support may not be inconsequential. Notice also which of these businesses do very well on a Sunday after mass or services as 2001-SQ73 trines Jupiter from November to December.

The prevalence of your videotaped image on surveillance cameras near municipal purveyors of vice and the number of visits to certain websites by your computer laptop and IP address makes you vulnerable to criminal investigation and identity theft during Elatus in Scorpio from December 2022 through March 2023. Don’t’ be fooled by counterintuitive policing deployment and methodologies as 2002-GZ32 trines the North Node from December 2022 through January 2023 – you may be under surveillance remotely but a cop will show up out of thin air should their presence be necessary. This is a warning for you to upgrade your lifestyle and your technology before late 2023.

Continue to travel in groups, whether or not you attend political or large-scale mass rallies, during Direct Motion Jupiter in very late Pisces during December. Assemble the smartest people that you can in such groups to determine what thinkers they admire, follow, listen to and act upon so that you can research these intellectual movers and shakers for your own list as Chariklo conjuncts 2003-CO1 from December 2022 through March 2027. However, do not try to draw too much public attention to this group of intellectuals during 2003-CO1 conjunct 2001-BL41 square the North Node during December. Keep this small, as a “think tank,” with concomitant small proportions.

Forewarn your true friends, “I’ll be off the grid and under the radar doing my own thing in my own way,” during Jupiter in Aries from late December 2022 through April 2023. “One covers more ground and infiltrates deeper when one flies alone. Ten-four. Over and out.”

 

TAURUS
2022

 

When you saw that Jupiter was entering Capricorn in December 2019, you had all the resources that you needed – but you planned to do more with less. After all, as an Earth sign, you’ve heard all the rumors for years about how good Taurus the Bull and their siblings, Virgo the Virgo and Capricorn the Goat, are with money. However, unless you really are a Taurus, Virgo or Capricorn, one does not know what that really means. The truth: Earth signs always have money because, and when, they do not spend profit. Earth signs hold onto money that other signs spend when both of them have money – and Earth signs are rewarded at times like when Jupiter transits Capricorn, which “expands shrinkage.”

Then, much to your shock and amazement, COVID-19 brought on “the big shrink.” Nobody could spend any money – there was nothing on which to spend it! For Taurus the Bull, merely one less problem to consider.

But then, as the weather got warmer, the economic question evaporated. The political consequences of American history, revisionist American history and the untold American history rode center stage. The business of the America was no longer business. Now, as the upcoming Pluto Returns of the United State of America throughout 2022 fulfills its natal 2nd house of inner values, those same upcoming Pluto Returns of the United State of America throughout 2022 traverse the Taurean natal 9th house of philosophy and religion. The U.S.A. 2nd house says, “We do this because.” The Taurus 9th house asks, “Why am I obeying you?”

An undercurrent of negativity does not go away easily. Children, nieces, nephews and grandchildren will not understand family members’ open hostility of towards certain merchants and companies. Such younger generation are oblivious and unaware as to how certain institutions and individuals are protected by both government and a ruthless private sector plutocracy as Pluto conjuncts Amycus in Capricorn from December 2020 to February 2023. Indeed, if those younger family members watch over time and ask discrete yet penetrating questions, they may be able to compile a historical profile of why their older family members react to certain newsworthy personages and institutions with such outright hostility – although a soft rebuke of the standing order by a more mature elder or younger family member will help put the picture in a more impersonal context. “Too many people in the public know and have known about such favoritism for so long that none of them are willing to tolerate it any longer.”

And that only addresses economic issues about which your family debates – not about what currently happens on the street. Political solutions involving the police will prove much more complicated and obtuse than anybody ever anticipated throughout Pholus conjunct 2002-GZ32 from December 2020 through November 2022.

Politicians will then try to steamroll you verbally with their local agenda’s well-oiled rhetoric, but they fail. You know what’s good for your family, city, state, province and country – assert it even if it directly opposes or dismisses the social commentary that you had developed throughout your writing earlier in 2021. Cooperate with legal counsel and powerful local partners to further this agenda during 1998-BU48 in Libra from November 2021 through March 2022. Despite the awkwardness of opposing ideas that you not only championed but actually created, hold your ground during Cyllarus opposite Chariklo conjunct 2001-KF77 conjunct 2001-BL41 during and after Christmas.

It is this attitude of commitment to practical reality that keeps the four hooves of the Bull fixed to Mother Earth. Because, ultimately, the Black Lives Matter protests, the subsequent riots, the January 6 Insurrection bore no relationship to business as usual, but, instead, indulged business as unusual.

This is a mandate with which you refuse to cooperate. Indeed, when an economic disaster proves opponents wrong during Asbolus conjunct Bienor square Neptune from December 2021 through June 2022, few will admit it, but will only echo the false complaints of Trumpista Republicans, “This fake news is just the tip of the iceberg of yet another conspiracy.”

Former allies, or allies with whom you may soon publicly split, insist that now is the time to launch those radical agendas during the beginning of Chariklo in Aquarius from November 2021 through January 2028 as adversarial and contradictory headwinds give it just the amount of lift it needs. One big obstacle in the way of such a radical plan: Easy to understand shortcuts will always be popular – and never more so than during 2001-KF77 in Aquarius from December 2021 through December 2028. So many people will support such easy-to-understand shortcuts during 2001-BL41 in Aquarius from December 2021 through January 2024 – but Jupiter square the North Node in late December insists that just because a majority of millions of people are wrong does not in any way, shape or form make that majority right.

Luckily, just in time, Retrograde Venus in Capricorn during December 2021 and January 2022 allows you to bring your mind back to Jupiter in Capricorn in December 2019: The economic discomfort that you feel as Ceres conjuncts the North Node during January is like your naked foot escaping the warmth of the blanket on a savage winter night. “It’s cold out there,” you mumble as you sleep, counting your money dollar by dollar, “but I am still warm.”

But you must eventually wake up to make the coffee. The future ruthlessly approaches. These economics drive political issues which effect twenty-year change. Know who you support and why – but be very circumspect as you discuss it – during Saturn in Aquarius from December 2020 through February 2023.

Discussing politics is particularly treacherous. The honest stalwart whom you trust seriously considers more radical ideas from a worthwhile colleague than makes them comfortable because that worthwhile colleague must fend off sketchy fringe players who vampirize the whole process during Chariklo conjunct 2001-KF77 from December 2021 through April 2027. The complexity of the circumstance demands discussion beyond a soundbyte, a scenario which proves profoundly dangerous as the North Node squares 2003-WL7 opposite Crantor during February and March. Lucky for you that you refuse to discuss it.

Sigh! If you didn’t have so much experience as a brick wall, you might begin to think the job was really hard – but then, you get paid for it, in spades, as Pluto trines the North Node from January to March, “I know you think that being a brick wall is easy but there a not a lot of people who can do it.” Being a brick wall is not that easy.

Then again, the North Node in Taurus from January 2022 to June 2023 reminds you that you simply need to consider: You have so much experience as a brick wall, and you do so well at it, because the indignation and insults of the world, “the school of hard knocks,” taught you to build that brick wall brick by brick by brick, like an old-world bricklayer who may not know English, but who will not be fooled. Your recent assertions, in that persona of implacable and unyielding brick wall obstinacy, in contradiction to the collective masses of opponents, created changes which will prove impossible to reverse during Jupiter in Pisces from January through April. The stampede proceeds to its inexorable conclusion.

Players who know where you stand despite radically changing conditions ally with you as 2002-GZ32 sextiles Jupiter sextiles Uranus conjunct Albion during February. Your own natural allies see this happening and join the coalition during Venus conjunct Mars in Capricorn in February as they communicate the agenda they want you to follow. Both new and natural allies are impressed as you make no immediate progress but move slowly and surely forward as Cyllarus in Cancer opposes Pluto conjunct Amycus in Capricorn from February to May, firmly in control despite momentary uncertainty.

Under normal circumstances, if you wanted to determine whether you trusted somebody or not, you would just look them in the eyes, hard, as you engaged in discussions with them – but, normally, you wouldn’t be wearing a mask. And who says they will discuss anything with you? With their COVID-19 mask on their faces, do their beady eyes shift as you make eye contact with them? Do they cover their head so well that you can discern neither gender nor race? As such, Chiron conjunct 2000-QB243 from February 2022 through May 2024 will force you to upgrade your occult science, as you try to discern personal character, loyalty and morality from those who refuse to reveal any information whatsoever.

This type of passive aggression makes you pushy. People pulling you in different directions impel you to pull them towards you as you move everybody forward. On top of all that, 1999-OX3 in Taurus from March 2022 through March 2027 compels you to catapult forward, commencing a straight-ahead stampede. Slow down! Ensure that others will follow should you lead. A stampede with one bull will end in a hail of bullets. Ensure cooperation first.

Indeed, any cooperation or agreements you get during Venus conjunct Mars in Aquarius in March will be high-profile, in many cases televised, yet tenuous at best, designed to attract attention to the participants, rather than to further the agenda. Don’t be surprised if it all falls apart spectacularly – or if you destroy it yourself, “It’s my party and I can cry if I want to!” Conversely, during Aphidas opposite Jupiter conjunct Nessus from February to March, real power brokers behind the scene who like your agenda will push that agenda forward in silent yet highly influential ways.

Whether clicking through the website of the monopoly retailer Amazon because you have debased into zombie, or simply scared to shop at extremely expensive street or mall retailers like Neiman Marcus or Nordstrom lest a flash mob stealing absolutely everything descend upon you, news on the Internet and television exacerbates problems in retail where people walk, talk and shop during Saturn in Aquarius trine Asbolus conjunct Bienor conjunct 1996-TL66 from March to June. This induces masses of people to take a political position in search of a solution as customers and clients speak out during Okyrhoe conjunct Jupiter conjunct Neptune square Asbolus conjunct Bienor conjunct 1996-TL66 in April. The municipal police speak up for these customers and clients in the hope that said customers and clients will speak up for more police doing more policing as Hylonome sextiles Okyrhoe conjunct Jupiter conjunct Neptune in April.

This development stuns many college-aged women who have the epiphany, “I really have a political voice – and maybe even political power,” during Okyrhoe conjunct Neptune from March 2022 to March 2023. Before going too far, like, for instance, by emulating Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, these college-aged women make their voice heard amongst live personages within Amazon or high-level store managers about things that make them comfortable or uncomfortable with their money and credit cards as Okyrhoe conjunct Jupiter conjunct Neptune sextiles the North Node in April.

In this context, launch a marketing strategy for your product or service as Okyrhoe conjunct Jupiter conjunct Neptune trines 1998-VG44 conjunct 2001-SQ73 in April – the more thorough, the better. Realize during 1998-BU48 trine Pluto conjunct Amycus from April through August that the tactics which have worked well, have worked very well, and have become institutionalized by both market leaders and their competition. Get the opinions of those customers and clients who have really considered this.

Dealing with individuals amongst the masses as just another number, or a type amongst demographic gestalts, will insult deeply intelligent customers and clients with money to spend as Saturn squares the North Node in April. It becomes clear as a ringing bell who it is that has the most to gain or to lose as Jupiter conjunct Venus sextiles Pluto conjunct Amycus, both stationing from Direct to Retrograde Motion, in late April. Keep your email list out as you execute those live marketing surveys as Jupiter conjunct Venus trines Cyllarus in late April so that you may be able to implement changes to that market demographic who initially suggested them.

Continue to work hard to implement tweaks to your methodology from what you recently learned during Jupiter in Aries from May to October – but don’t try to turn a leisurely five-kilometer race into the winner-take-all marathon. You need to meditate upon what you learned during such research so that you can conduct even more penetrating, deeper research, not only as Jupiter transits Aries in early 2023, but also when Neptune transits Aries from 2025 to 2039. Develop “plans” – one-year plan, five-year plan, twenty-year plan – for your business.

Alternatively, develop “plans” – one-year plan, five-year plan, twenty-year plan – for your family, based upon love, not professional or financial ambition, that you hold for your family, for Cyllarus in Leo from June 2022 through July 2039. And, if you are a politician, mayor, urban planner or concerned citizen of your city, state, province or country, again – develop your “plan.”

Ask yourself, “Are these customers or clients who now complain wanting or asking for, and considering, real solutions?” during Bienor in Cancer from July 2022 through January 2023. Further, take such complaints as a warning to delay launching a very bold professional innovation, likely involving PayPal, credit cards, Bitcoin or a line of credit from your local bank, during Asbolus in Cancer from mid-September to mid-October. Logistic problems, especially involving high technology can go from bad to much worse during 2003-WL7 in Virgo from October through February 2023. Let other lemmings stampede off the cliff first.

Apply all that you learned when you took marketing surveys and spoke to concerned representatives of your target market in March and April to forge meaningful innovations in product, service and payment as Uranus conjunct the North Node from July to September. Don’t let those greedy anti-visionary democratic capitalistic generalists scream, “Bitcoin! Bitcoin! Bitcoin!” in your face. Technology will have solved all problems after the robots have already taken over.

Moreover, don’t make your decision for or against Bitcoin and cryptocurrency a political decision that you share and flout with allies against adversaries as 2002-VR130 squares 2002-CR46 conjunct the South Node opposite Uranus conjunct the North Node during August and September. Act according to your financial interests only. You are developing your own way of doing business that ensures that your customers and clients are ultimately dealing with you – this is exactly what you want such customers and clients to want. Human touch!

 Wherever they feel that power brokers overlook or ignore them, not only in politics and government but especially the technology sector of the capital markets, lawyers will announce, “The law will not be disregarded,” throughout 1998-BU48 in Libra from September 2022 through August 2047. Do not underestimate those who use the written law as the ultimate weapon.

Implement no further innovation during Retrograde Jupiter from August to November. Maintain all your old interpersonal and electronic interfaces and protocol throughout Thereus conjunct Aphidas from September 2022 through August 2023 until you decide to overhaul all interpersonal and electronic interfaces and protocol – and, when you do it, don’t do it piecemeal, but once, totally and absolutely. Determine what works and what doesn’t. If you have the personnel and the capacity, deploy a destructive testing research and development specialist to find ways that cheaters can try to hurt you.

Prepare to argue about and to negotiate the same ideas in next year’s budget with your same enemies during Saturn square Uranus from September to November.

Recall the different political positions which you bandied about amongst both online shoppers, specifically Amazon, and those who still shop in brick-and-mortar stores in malls as all sorts of unsavory, irrational and violent incidents of large-scale retail theft dominate the news and country as Stationary Mars squares Neptune during October and November. One necessary law enforcement implementation involves studying photographs of underaged thugs on social media available to everybody in the general public, including law enforcement, before, not after, large-scale retail theft, as there may be no mugshots of them from which to study after such crimes, as 2001-SQ73 squares Elatus during November. Really – how is anybody going to arrest “the usual suspects” during 2001-SQ73 trine Jupiter from November to December if they don’t already know who they are?

Retrograde Jupiter in very late Pisces during November proves many of the attitudes and ideas expressed during your marketing campaign in March & April to be prophetic. If you, as a businessperson, already have a plan in place and in full effect which circumvents or solves this problem, then more power to you as you clean up during Retrograde Mars in Gemini from November 2022 to Martin Luther King Day 2023 – just don’t try to put a new system into place during the Retrograde.

Even so, realize, during Elatus in Scorpio from December 2022 through March 2023, that the mention of race may wind up being the large pink elephant in the very small room that many people will avoid discussing. Even mentioning race will induce many hostile people to insist upon discussing many other things, right now, immediately. Know how and when to stick to your subject.

Major political and logistic problems can be addressed and solved now that they have been identified and brought up to the surface during Direct Motion Jupiter in very late Pisces during December. Determine not only what the other side of the negotiating table really wants, but exactly why they mistrust you and your side, as 2001-SQ73 opposes Pluto conjunct Amycus from December 2022 through February 2023.

Turn your attention back to the hard work innovating as a result of what you learned from market research conducted in March and April commencing Jupiter in Aries from late December 2022 through April 2023. Realize, however, that expanding your business during 2002-GZ32 trine the North Node from December 2022 through January 2023 requires, first, compartmentalization, and second, consolidation within the more lucrative, volume-intensive compartments – a true logistic complication.

Also, fortunately, you can discuss politics again with some semblance of hope as TV pundits, academics and local thinkers being to read, to interview and to associate with actual experts who know whereof they speak during Chariklo conjunct 2003-CO1 from December 2022 through March 2027 – but take note that this is distinctly an elitist trend as 2003-CO1 conjunct 2001-BL41 squares the North Node during December.

 

GEMINI
2022

 

Gemini the Twin, as Jupiter entered Capricorn during December 2019, had, at various times, heard of, suffered from, invested in, benefitted from and respected the phenomenon of “the jobless recovery” in the capital markets. However, in no way were you prepared for a Bull Market in the actual and manifest absence of any economy whatsoever!

The smug look of the software engineer playing Candy Crunch on their cell phone does not dislodge you from your rather agitated concern. COVID-19, the Black Lives Matter protests, the riots thereafter, the 2020 Presidential Election, President Donald J. Trump’s claims of election fraud, the January 6 Insurrection – not a blip on the brokerage house’s radar. COVID-19 quarantine driving the market to unprecedented highs as social media groups all over Facebook disagree with network news, CNN and even some Fox News reporters that the outcome of the 2020 U.S. Presidential Election was legitimate – but nobody doubted the veracity of the COVID-19 Bull Market!

It is enough to make an astrologer wonder, “Are the Pluto Returns of the United States of America throughout 2022 about redressing democracy to prevent plutocratic manipulation – or is it proof positive that the business of America is business?”

Really – avoid overreacting. Retrograde Venus in Capricorn during December 2021 and January 2022 invites you, for free, for a first-class seat in the time machine back to December 2019 – a time when you still believed that 2 plus 2 equals 4. Why are you (or is your 401K) invested in the stock market? To pay to live in a better apartment or house so that your spouse and children can live a happy life. And, indeed, part of making a new apartment or house a home lies in taking care of the particularly special needs of your children – about which you will be thinking, planning or creating – as 1998-BU48 transits Libra from November 2021 through March 2022. To pay for your children’s college education. And to buy your family’s summer home. To retire. Keep it real.

Realize, for instance, that, during and throughout Pluto conjunct Amycus in Capricorn from December 2020 to February 2023, certain plutocrats invest in extremely rarefied stocks or private placement offerings intended to serve only other plutocrats. Jeff Bezos, Elon Musk, William Shatner, Michael Strahan, going into space. To them? Reality. To you? Well, didn’t Mila Kunis chastise Ashton Kutcher for still wanting to go into space even though he is the father of their child? The silliness is unsustainable. Again, keep it real.

Also, keep in mind that the influence of the COVID-19 quarantine economic stimulus package during 2020 seriously discombobulated the overall profile of the macroeconomy as some stocks became inflated while others are seriously deflated during and beyond Pholus conjunct 2002-GZ32 from December 2020 through November 2022. Somebody made sick money and somebody lost their shirt. Muster the courage to assert during Cyllarus opposite Chariklo conjunct 2001-KF77 conjunct 2001-BL41 during and after Christmas, “Why would I invest any time or money in something that doesn’t make any sense?” Again, the silliness is unsustainable. Again, keep it real.

Maintain a placid temperament with irrational idealists even though such irrational idealists will refuse to maintain a placid temperament with you as Asbolus conjunct Bienor squares Neptune from December 2021 through June 2022. Many irrational idealists will doubt your “pragmatism” as they challenge your fiscal conservatism during Jupiter square the North Node in late December. You really don’t need to make or to rebut any argument during Ceres conjunct the North Node during January as much as you must address a sensibility. You really don’t want to risk or to lose money for any reason – and you don’t have to say anybody is wrong, “Everything requires risk, but I don’t like that risk – once you lose the money, the money is gone.”

Truly words to live by throughout the North Node in Taurus from January 2022 to June 2023. Preparing against untenable risk is the best plan you can make to prevent that negative scenario – “Once you lose the money, the money is gone” – from happening to you and to those whom you advise during the very spooky shadow of Pluto trine the North Node from January to March.

This argument is persuasive because it is practical. However, right now, you are just very persuasive in general. More people are willing to entertain your more esoteric ideas as Chariklo transits Aquarius from November 2021 through January 2028. However, you do yourself a disservice if you take your own political philosophy, astronomical, astrological or scientific arguments too seriously. Ultimately, quacks still quack and take extreme shortcuts during 2001-KF77 in Aquarius from December 2021 through December 2028. Moreover, everybody is still a scientist, is still getting their Ph.D., is still a living guru of the manifest abstract light (with a tax-deductible non-profit) as 2001-BL41 transits Aquarius from December 2021 through January 2024. And don’t kid yourself – Chariklo conjunct 2001-KF77 from December 2021 through April 2027 warns that it will be more difficult than you realize to distinguish the brainiacs from the freakoids. And all of that is gloriously and outrageously fabulous.

But other issues require consistent, sober thorough and analysis. If you or others are engaged in contract negotiations, litigation or a criminal trial, opponents, lawyers, judges and the media, as well as professional academics, will punish you and everybody else mercilessly throughout Saturn in Aquarius from December 2020 through February 2023 if you refuse to define terms clearly, accurately and definitively.

All that said: Strap yourself in the saddle – your workload increases significantly during Jupiter in Pisces from January through April. Take care of your health. Indeed, if you are in business for yourself, or you are responsible for invoicing customers and clients directly, then 2002-GZ32 sextile Jupiter sextile Uranus conjunct Albion during February urges you to get an accounting, bookkeeping, invoicing or inventory computer application in place before March begins so that you can handle the possibility of a head-on, front-end onslaught of customers. All that you want to do at work is churn and earn money throughout 1999-OX3 in Taurus from March 2022 through March 2027. Transact, collect, deposit – repeat.

Concurrently, while discussing politics, economics or science is amenable, the North Node squares 2003-WL7 opposite Crantor during February and March warns that discussing current events and current day true crime is way off-limits – unless you want to quit your day job to fight in an all-out civil war.

Investments and your 401K make life comfortable and your future secure as Cyllarus in Cancer opposes Pluto conjunct Amycus in Capricorn from February to May. As long as you have all your debts paid in full, Venus conjunct Mars in Capricorn in February recommends a second honeymoon – or an international vacation with a sweetheart to whom you may want to “pop the question.”

Remain practical, dealing with known quantities. Avoid speculation. Political discussions about the U.S., Russia and China are remarkably similar to professional discussions about whether associates are loyal to or against your interests during Chiron conjunct 2000-QB243 from February 2022 through May 2024. The way you view it: You don’t know what weapons Russia or China have. You don’t know what they want next. You don’t know what associates’ financial interests truly entail. It is a futile exercise to speculate upon facts that you don’t know. This is a wise supposition. Act on it.

Discussing astrology often attracts the opposite sex, but, surprisingly, discussing politics also attracts the opposite sex as Venus conjuncts Mars in Aquarius in March – as long as the politics do not reflect the self-interest of you or those with whom you discuss them. In the beginning, this is easy – but economics will interfere. Quit while you are ahead as you lead the conversation back to astrology.

As a rule, focus upon big – no, massive – projects during Aphidas opposite Jupiter conjunct Nessus from February to March.

Clients, customers, judges, opposing attorneys all challenge terms you defined and prices you set as Saturn in Aquarius trines Asbolus conjunct Bienor conjunct 1996-TL66 from March to June. The terms discussed involve complications which many initially overlooked; however, now that they know the consequences of them, they object – it must be your fault! However, if you were correct when you first stated them, then they will be correct now. Make sure that you were and are correct.

Making your life more burdensome and complicated, colleagues, employees, bosses and their bosses need and lean on your considerable experience and expertise during Okyrhoe conjunct Jupiter conjunct Neptune square Asbolus conjunct Bienor conjunct 1996-TL66 in April. A young intern or youthful boss is particularly overwhelmed, now and throughout Okyrhoe conjunct Neptune from March 2022 to March 2023. Bosses now pay more money for such talent than they originally intended as Okyrhoe conjunct Jupiter conjunct Neptune sextiles the North Node in April.

While nobody ultimately says anything about it, Okyrhoe conjunct Jupiter conjunct Neptune trine 1998-VG44 conjunct 2001-SQ73 in April declares that all of you know that this has become your responsibility and the reason for your paycheck. This is exactly why all view you mysteriously during Hylonome sextiles Okyrhoe conjunct Jupiter conjunct Neptune in April. Don’t be paranoid, the explanation is simple: You are the wild card. You are that playmaker who needs to make the big plays for the sake of the team.

A harsh, unpopular cost-cutting measure, or the firing of a popular, industrious and reliable yet outspoken employee represents autocratic injustice to all involved, making a public outcry outright necessary during Saturn square the North Node in April. Concurrently, a massive professional success justifies a capital investment by your bosses as Jupiter conjunct Venus sextiles Pluto conjunct Amycus, both stationing from Direct to Retrograde Motion, in late April. Expect a well-earned reward, bonus, raise or promotion as Jupiter conjunct Venus trines Cyllarus in late April.

If such reward, bonus, raise or promotion manifests, consider taking out a bank loan to add a new room to your home, or a mortgage to buy a larger house, as 1998-BU48 trines Pluto conjunct Amycus from April through August.

If such reward, bonus, raise or promotion does not manifest, network and apply for better-paying positions, starting when Jupiter in Aries from May to October. If you don’t score a better-paying position right away, keep looking – you may land a better position than you expect as Jupiter transits Aries in early 2023. Use this as a trial run for when you go after the power, glory and the really big money when Neptune transits Aries from 2025 to 2039. You have every reason to have all the confidence in the world during Cyllarus in Leo from June 2022 through July 2039 – use it to negotiate for, and to outright demand, “the Lion’s share.”

Conversely, don’t complain about, and don’t stew over, not getting your fair share of money during Bienor in Cancer from July 2022 through January 2023. Losers complain. Indeed, the more that you complain, the more that you will turn into a loser beginning Asbolus in Cancer from mid-September to mid-October. Transmit positive thought forms via voice and mental telepathy.

To say that you need to redress your ideas about money during Uranus conjunct the North Node from July to September states the case in an unhelpfully broad way. Most people who invest in Bitcoin and Blockchain are the same old gold-diggers who don’t know what to do when the gold runs out. Worse yet, 2002-VR130 square 2002-CR46 conjunct the South Node opposite Uranus conjunct the North Node during August and September warns that too many investors in Bitcoin and Blockchain, including these ignorant gold-diggers, discuss Bitcoin and Blockchain as a cloak of ideological honor, without referring to how Bitcoin and Blockchain serves their own self-interest. The more nefarious and knowledgeable about both Bitcoin and Blockchain and their own self-interest will express their viewpoints to gain converts because converts serve their self-interest. Have none of it. Define what works for you.

Accordingly, you need to think about a much more complex psychological and metaphysical matrix about money. How does the amount of money you earn reflect your idea of: A) Your own status and financial security; B) The standard of living you demand for yourself; or C) Your need for investment capital? Moreover, do you earn dollars so as to spend dollars, or to spend Loonies, Pesos or Euros? Does your money pay for the cage where you house yourself, your spouse and your family or the airplane on which all of you flex your freedom? This is not personal finance. This is not economics. This is not Marxism. This is not creative visualization. This is existential self-determination.

Marriage leads to children leads to property during 1998-BU48 in Libra from September 2022 through August 2047 – but you may love having and raising children so much that it becomes addictive!

Your self-belief in your market price accelerates and escalates during 2003-WL7 in Virgo from October through February 2023 – particularly if you take courses on the side to upgrade your already formidable skills. However, your ability to network and to protect yourself in the broader professional workplaces shrinks during Retrograde Jupiter from August to November. Keep track of the gains you made where you let off so that you can pick up the scent again in early 2023 – but keep your hunter’s eye well-informed and fully appraised as you keep your eyes on Indeed, Robert Half and all available job-hunting boards as Thereus conjuncts Aphidas from September 2022 through August 2023. In the meantime, concentrate upon defending yourself in employee reviews and (God forbid) accounting audits as Saturn squares Uranus from September to November.

Your marital relationships, responsibilities to your children and contractual terms with business partners demand that you pay more money, which will be arduous to distribute, and which you may not even have, as 2001-SQ73 squares Elatus during November.

Remain rational and calm as you consider what opportunities you overlooked as they died on the vine in front of you during Retrograde Mars in Gemini from November 2022 to Martin Luther King Day 2023. The demands that professional employers place upon you during Stationary Mars square Neptune during October and November will not only make you crazy, but will demonstrate that such employers are themselves crazy, if not outright cruel.

Whether or not such employers are crazy or cruel, Retrograde Jupiter in very late Pisces during November reminds you that the work will not go away. But will you have to do it? Even if it is not your job to do? The short answer: Until Direct Motion Jupiter in very late Pisces during December, yes – but don’t be shy in letting bosses know that you merit just compensation for doing such duties as 2001-SQ73 trines Jupiter from November to December. Afterwards, change occurs – although defined cryptically, yet explicitly, to protect bosses’ interests, during Elatus in Scorpio from December 2022 through March 2023.

The recent reemergence of the specter of inflation makes you realize that the numbers that you have calculated which will underwrite your upcoming financial future may require ongoing reassessment (Can you say, “algorithm”?) as 2001-SQ73 opposes Pluto conjunct Amycus from December 2022 through February 2023. Talk with your financial broker to determine ways to diversify your portfolio so as to protect your important long-term financial assets, particularly your real estate and your children’s college education fund, to engage in potentially lucrative financial risk, simultaneously, as 2002-GZ32 trines the North Node from December 2022 through January 2023.

The clouds over the intellectual environment dispel. Even though such geniuses, and, in fact, so many geniuses amongst the general public emerge as 2003-CO1 conjunct 2001-BL41 squares the North Node during December, it becomes easier to distinguish geniuses from charlatans as Chariklo conjuncts 2003-CO1 from December 2022 through March 2027. Engage in meaningful discourse as you recommence professional networking as Jupiter transits Aries from late December 2022 through April 2023.

 

CANCER
2022

 

Both the daily life of your spouse and the contemporary vicissitudes of the world at large have your spouse and all sorts of people in the general public jumping through hoops created by all sorts of extremely unusual stimuli – COVID 19 quarantine and restrictions, the entrenched, strident political discourse of the late Trump Administration, the spillover of inflated cacophony of social media platforms from virtual containment upon the Internet to overt manifestation on the streets of the city. This made your spouse and many of these people ask, “Is any of this real? What is real, anyway?”

To which you respond, “You discuss ontology. Ontology is about what is, how we know what is, and whether we know what is.

“I do not consider ontology,” you tell your spouse and other afflicted people. “I accept it.”

Even so, 2020 and 2021 were as rough for you as they were for everyone else. Either you, by yourself, or you and your spouse together, defined goals for yourself for the next twelve to eighteen months as Jupiter entered Capricorn in December 2019 – provided, of course, that life proceeded as normal and nothing too untoward happened. Unfortunately, 2020 and 2021 proved to be the most untoward years in the entire history of the United States of America – COVID-19 quarantine, George Floyd, Black Lives Matter protests, riots, 2020 Presidential Election, claims of election fraud, January 6 Insurrection – and you were hoping to save money for an international vacation! Then you could save money to have a new baby and to expand the family – if you had saved enough money to buy a new home! Instead, you find yourself faced with redressing the entrenched, fused and intractable layers of injustice throughout the past 220 years as we prepare for the Pluto Returns of the United States of America throughout 2022.

This is far beyond the scope of all that you planned to consider – which makes it all the more important that you return to the thoughts which dominated your mind as Jupiter entered Capricorn in December 2019 as Retrograde Venus in Capricorn during December 2021 and January 2022.

You yourself cannot deny as you evolve throughout Pluto conjunct Amycus in Capricorn from December 2020 to February 2023, that the criteria for one who is to be in a relationship with you is becoming more, not less, rarified and specific. This is one reason why you have settled down by yourself or with whomever you have, with all their flaws – especially when you consider that what you now perceive to be flaws may simply be as a result of many of the changes that the COVID-19 pandemic has placed upon all of us beyond anybody’s control.

Whether or not you settled down with your spouse, mate or partner, complications surrounding that individual regarding their job makes it even more difficult to communicate with them, and especially to be with them in the midst of their thoughts, during Pholus conjunct 2002-GZ32 from December 2020 through November 2022. Be grateful that this spouse, mate or partner brings with their problems an acute awareness of the fundamental reality underwriting society’s current complex problems.

A lot of these issues facing that spouse, mate or partner involve large-scale societal dysfunctions – not making money. The job of that spouse, mate or partner, your relationship with that spouse, mate or partner and the breakdown of Western civilization are not all mutually sustainable if you are to have a happy, prosperous and productive relationship with that spouse, mate or partner. While it’s not you who got drunk on freedom, it is you and your spouse, mate or partner who will endure the harsh, protracted hangover of karmic payback during Saturn in Aquarius from December 2020 through February 2023. You did not get together with that spouse, mate or partner to withstand the onslaught of national karma. You and your spouse, mate or partner are enduring more than your share of pain.

Others are not. Mathematical rationalizations (supply-side economics is one memorable example) proliferate as Chariklo transits Aquarius from November 2021 through January 2028. 2001-KF77 in Aquarius from December 2021 through December 2028 declares that many such neo-Keynesian economic gurus are one-hit wonders and outright frauds – but, truth be told, not everybody is a social science theorist, appearances to the contrary, during 2001-BL41 in Aquarius from December 2021 through January 2024. However, certain social science theorists who become really popular during Jupiter square the North Node in late December really do know how to add. Some social science theorists have done their homework, do know whereof they speak and in fact do have many followers. But they still do not contribute a dime to the greater good.

The truth is simple: A lot of honorable people and institutions who need money during Ceres conjunct the North Node during January and are trying to cooperate with benefactors so as to get that money in exchange for payment back later – which they intend to and will do. Other people, in various types of social groups and political coalitions, seek public assistance according to government rules during Chariklo conjunct 2001-KF77 from December 2021 through April 2027, where some intend to and will follow the rules and laws and others intend to grab the money and run.

As far as you are concerned, in your family, as well as in your neighborhood, school, city, state, province or country, you and everybody else are truly equal before the laws, and each one of you should be treated as such during 1998-BU48 in Libra from November 2021 through March 2022. You and your spouse, mate or partner have your own financial responsibilities, you and your spouse, mate or partner have more than enough to do, so everybody else has to carry their own weight.

None of these rationalizing, deficit-spending, social science apologetics carry any weight. Hard work, long hours and sticking to a budget make a comeback during Cyllarus opposite Chariklo conjunct 2001-KF77 conjunct 2001-BL41 during and after Christmas, “It worked for Dad and it can work for us, too!” The wolf who made their home out of happy horse manure and Elmer’s Glue will curse the gods whom he blames for his fate during Asbolus conjunct Bienor square Neptune from December 2021 through June 2022 – but he has nobody to blame except himself.

Of course, if you take economics seriously, you will read Saskia Sassen and Thomas Piketty throughout the North Node in Taurus from January 2022 to June 2023 to learn how the world got to where it is today since 1980 – nobody can read these authors in a hurry. Then again, if you take your economics seriously, Pluto trine the North Node from January to March states that you already know that Marx, in his “Theses on Feuerbach,” proclaimed, “The philosophers have interpreted the world, in various ways – the point is to change it.”

Marx at that time was expressing a highly idealistic sentiment. However, whatever photograph or video you may see at the time of the North Node square 2003-WL7 opposite Crantor during February and March, whether it is a rerun of George Floyd, Ahmaud Arbery, Kyle Rittenhouse or the fourteen thieves videotaped looting the Louis Vuitton store in Chicago in late November 2021 for $120,000 of product, you will simply say, “I don’t want to change the entire world, but I sure as Hell want to change that.”

One thing at a time. The Five-Year Plan you wrote earlier in 2021 beckons as Jupiter transits Pisces from January through April. Step #1 in the five-year plan begins as you implement an overhaul of payment, transactional and banking systems as 2002-GZ32 sextiles Jupiter sextiles Uranus conjunct Albion during February. Go through each step thoroughly and completely first, and ensure each step along the way works, before moving onto the next step.

This is all you can do at the moment, but it is also the only thing for you to do at the moment. Otherwise, if you have reconciled your personal, relationship and professional goals now with the personal, relationship and professional goals of December 2019, then – WHAMO! – Venus conjunct Mars in Capricorn in February falls on Valentine’s Day! Moreover, emotionally, Cyllarus in Cancer opposite Pluto conjunct Amycus in Capricorn from February to May denotes that you provide your spouse, mate or partner with the confidence to realize that they have become a better person and spouse, mate or partner as a result of all the transformative changes that you have shared. Celebrate.

During Chiron conjunct 2000-QB243 from February 2022 through May 2024, some people treat you like the boss, some people treat some other employee like the boss, and most people treat the boss like a backward moron. Be not deceived by such malevolent appearances. The boss is the boss. Given how many times you have heard how many people misconstrue economics, money and actual math at the end of 2021, you become somewhat refreshed, psychologically, logically, emotionally and intellectually, as businesspeople display a healthy prospect and hunger for money commencing 1999-OX3 in Taurus from March 2022 through March 2027. Indeed, after your recent romantic rendezvous with your spouse, mate or lover, you now discuss with them less romantic yet profoundly important issues of commitment regarding property, investment portfolios, preparation for children and for children’s college educations. The hunger that such businesspeople display for wealth is a positive attitude in this regard, but it is not nearly enough. You are on the hunt and quest for wealth. This is Darwinian, Hobbesian capitalism. Refocus your intellectual imbalances immediately.

The sexual manifestations emanating from a recent peak in your relationship with a spouse, mate or partner spill over into glorious, kinky excess as Venus conjuncts Mars in Aquarius – but business, publishing and academic opportunities demand much, much more of the time of both of you during Aphidas opposite Jupiter conjunct Nessus from February to March. Pull back from each other now – before you face a health or property-related crisis during Saturn in Aquarius trine Asbolus conjunct Bienor conjunct 1996-TL66 from March to June.

Identity theft, fraud and manipulation of e-commerce facilities and machines which take credit cards cause a skyrocketing number of criminal cases, perhaps upon the payment and transaction systems that you just updated during Okyrhoe conjunct Jupiter conjunct Neptune square Asbolus conjunct Bienor conjunct 1996-TL66 in April. Allow vested law enforcement officials and regulatory agents to convince these customers that the law is investigating what happened and stands behind them 100% as Hylonome sextiles Okyrhoe conjunct Jupiter conjunct Neptune in April. Contact credit card agencies, and allow them and their institutions to convince these customers that the law is investigating what happened and stands behind them 100% during Okyrhoe conjunct Jupiter conjunct Neptune sextile the North Node in April, and that such unhappy episodes will not cost any of them any money whatsoever. Make no promise to such customers on behalf of your employer during Okyrhoe conjunct Jupiter conjunct Neptune trine 1998-VG44 conjunct 2001-SQ73 in April which your employer may not be inclined to keep.

Making you feel guilty, young, college-aged women or recent female college graduates feel absolutely overwhelmed by these worldly issues during Okyrhoe conjunct Neptune from March 2022 to March 2023.

The promises of one such institution during such a scenario fails to assuage the damages of at least one such individual in such a scenario during Saturn square the North Node in April, creating a public relations boondoggle. More profound work with better-skilled labor working in coordination with much more powerful agencies, including government agencies, becomes necessary during 1998-BU48 trine Pluto conjunct Amycus from April through August. Significantly, climactically and very publicly, everything gets completely straightened out for the good guys at Jupiter conjunct Venus sextiles Pluto conjunct Amycus, both stationing from Direct to Retrograde Motion, in late April, amongst whom you loom as a larger-than-life giant during Jupiter conjunct Venus trine Cyllarus in late April.

The aftermath of the rectification of the large-scale, complicated snafu during Jupiter in Aries from May to October echoes with an envious silence. Here is where you are supposed to get credit and rewarded for making what was wrong right – but such credit and reward is premature. Why? Mainly, these recent problems really can recur – just not exactly yet. Also, there may be no room at the top – a situation that may indeed change as Jupiter transits Aries in early 2023. (Don’t worry: By the time that Neptune transits Aries from 2025 to 2039, you won’t have to put up with any such delays.) Behave like a vigilant soldier working as a sentry on an ostensibly quiet night so that your immediate military superior hears the echoes of your boots pound the pavement.

Of course, executing acts of heroism are much more important than adopting the appearance of a hero – if that were not the case, movie actors would merit more honor than one who saves hundreds of lives or even entire cities from enemy capture and destruction. Even so, Cyllarus in Leo from June 2022 through July 2039 emphasizes that appearances matter, too – but not superficial appearances. If you did save hundreds of lives or an entire city from manifest destruction, one would expect your soul to glow through your corporeal body like an otherworldly being. And otherworldly beings wear sharp uniforms . . . according to military dress code. Yes, sir!

Bienor in Cancer from July 2022 through January 2023 denotes that complaining and complainers are ugly. Ugly people will complain in loud shouts in your face – but you will not be ugly. Whoever goes ugly, explodes during Asbolus in Cancer from mid-September to mid-October.

Furthermore, the honor or dishonor of your public life will reflect in your ability or inability to lead, raise, direct and control the children in your family both now and in the long run during 1998-BU48 in Libra from September 2022 through August 2047.

All of this points to an upgrade or downgrade of your personal and professional alliances as Uranus conjunct the North Node from July to September. Your alliances, your associates, your acquaintances and your friends will all represent your personal trajectory, your moral compass, your soul. You are either transforming or debasing. Moreover, the six degrees of separation which applies to you – six friends of a friend of a friend to either President Joe Biden or Paulina Gretzky or El Chapo – applies to everybody whom you know during 2002-VR130 square 2002-CR46 conjunct the South Node opposite Uranus conjunct the North Node during August and September. Identify which, immediately – and correct all that you should never tolerate.

All that being said, you can’t ask pointed questions of your associates any time that you like – it simply isn’t appropriate. However, at times, such questions are not only appropriate but are necessary. Be aware of the former and alert as to the latter during Thereus conjunct Aphidas from September 2022 through August 2023.

No matter where you stand, you earn political and personal enemies during Saturn square Uranus from September to November. This does not matter. These losers only give you the evil eye during Retrograde Jupiter from August to November because they know that you have to wait for the rewards that you earned during March and April – and they now root for you to fail. Care only about whether or not you can look yourself in the eye in the bathroom mirror every morning when you wake up.

Then, and only then, if you can approve of who you are and what you have done, have you the right to criticize what another does – and only then, very sporadically – during 2003-WL7 in Virgo from October through February 2023. But be warned: Other peoples’ standards are not as high as yours. Some people think that they have the right to criticize others even though they themselves are walking, talking, open bags of garbage, “It’s a free country, isn’t it?” You must anticipate that other people whom you criticize will lack shame – hopefully, before you choose to criticize them.

You must investigate if a family member is lying or hiding criminal activity from you during 2001-SQ73 square Elatus during November before the situation escalates.

You can neither control nor can you combat gossip and slander behind your back during Retrograde Mars in Gemini from November 2022 to Martin Luther King Day 2023. Therefore, Retrograde Jupiter in very late Pisces during November demands that you trust the system. You will experience more than one epiphany as allies prove to you who has been badmouthing you at the exact moment that they condemn these enemies to exonerate you during Stationary Mars square Neptune during October and November. Maintain your composure. Do not let painful shock to debase into violent rage.

The smoking gun that you discover during Elatus in Scorpio from December 2022 through March 2023 – the videotape, the hand-written signature, the IP address, the string of computer code – may contain glitches which obfuscate the truth. Don’t jump to conclusions. Remember: Your reputation, the infrastructure, professional superiors and the law protect you during 2001-SQ73 trine Jupiter from November to December.

Because your allies have already slain all the behind-the-scenes astral demons who plagued you, proceed forward with peace and mind and gratitude during Direct Motion Jupiter in very late Pisces during December. The credit and rewards that you earned during April and early May will be forthcoming as a promotion or a raise as Jupiter transits Aries from late December 2022 through April 2023.

Then, surprisingly, you hear or read an intelligent appraisal of the economy, the government and the workplace, either on the Internet, television or newspaper, as Chariklo conjuncts 2003-CO1 from December 2022 through March 2027 – delightfully ironically, whose very intelligence you can discern during 2003-CO1 conjunct 2001-BL41 square the North Node during December by the number of absolute idiots in the public who outright reject it! The world seems to becoming more sane.

Your marital relationship or business partnerships evolve and mutate on extremely exciting levels. Your spouse or partner, as a result of their increasingly occult, recondite and rarified alliances and associates, becomes a minister, guru or feudal lord who can only be approached from a distance of one-quarter mile along a red carpet leading directly to their throne during 2002-GZ32 trine the North Node from December 2022 through January 2023. Meanwhile, the increasingly occult, recondite and rarified alliances and associates of your spouse or partner view you as a profound figure of pure mystery, not unlike either Lady Grantham, Cora Crawley, Countess of Grantham from Cincinnati, Ohio on Downton Abbey, Cicely Tyson, wife of Miles Davis, or, for that matter, James Dougherty, Joe DiMaggio or Arthur Miller, the husbands of Marilyn Monroe, during 2001-SQ73 opposite Pluto conjunct Amycus from December 2022 through February 2023. But don’t worry: Cancer is a cardinal sign – you’ll know how to play it.

 

LEO
2022

 

You think back to being at work back when Jupiter entered Capricorn in December 2019, as you prepared for a new year, decade and Jupiter-Saturn cycle. You sat at your desk, looked out the nearest window, heard your colleagues and employees talking, walking to and fro, blah, blah, blah, considering upcoming deadlines, Christmas parties, bonus and upcoming vacation. You thought, “I don’t mind work.”

Really, the whole process of work seemed to flatter your Leonine temperament. Somebody sets the agenda. Work involving effort and skill becomes due at a deadline. Competency and diligence ensured that one executed the objective while ineptitude and laziness earned the concomitant opprobrium and termination.

You did well. You got paid. You got promoted. You got paid more. The work process proved transparent, fair and beneficial to you. Why would you mind work?

Thereupon, weirdness. For some reason, things changed. Colleagues and employees – the capable, ambitious and intellectually challenging individuals who made your life interesting for so many years – became an unbearable logistic headache during Pholus conjunct 2002-GZ32 from December 2020 through November 2022. Why? COVID-19. COVID-19 could infect everybody at the office – so everybody left the office until it became safe to return. Which is when? When will you be there? And how many people will be there? With you there?

Later in the year, you began to notice is that none of you are actually given enough room to do any of your jobs in the first place. The powers that be put in place scattered scheduling involving remote work stations as well as shields to protect you and your people throughout Pluto conjunct Amycus in Capricorn from December 2020 to February 2023, exacerbating an absolute lack of intimacy and synergy. Such accommodations only serve to aggravate you. The whole experience struck you as an attempt by the cartoon character Dilbert to undermine your personage, profession and employer in such a way to make you feel dependent upon malevolent forces conspiring to make you feel useless.

You didn’t actually realize until the summer of 2020 how bad things were. The Kafkaesque surrealism that the government imposed upon your professional employer and you paled in comparison to the naked lunacy gripping the population of the U.S.A. George Floyd, the Black Lives Matter protest, the subsequent riots, the January 6 Insurrection – the glaring lack of logic and civilized behavior forced you to realize, if not necessarily acknowledge, that the upcoming Pluto Return of the United States of America throughout 2022 served as a reasonable explanation for the extremely disturbing psychotherapeutic demonstration of masses of extremely frustrated and unhappy Americans.

This is why you, Leo the Lion, must return back to where you were when you understood life during December 2019 during Retrograde Venus in Capricorn during December 2021 and January 2022 for a very necessary spiritual epiphany: You have been spared the lunacy of demonstrating your mental illnesses as a patient in the asylum because you had sanely conducted yourself with dignity in the first place.

For one thing, the financial shortfall that you and bosses endure as Ceres conjuncts the North Node during January is a problem that you have encountered before. It is something pedestrian and plebian that you recognize as reality and is a phenomenon that you outright respect. And, for another the partner who champions the hard way and the permanent gains has been arguing with you from across your desk as Saturn has been transiting Aquarius from December 2020 through February 2023.

So, there you have it. The universe respects you. Reality exists.

Now you can address some real problems. Partners who didn’t originally acknowledge that they cannot afford what they demand, both within their budget and as part of their narrow constituency, gain more power and authority during Chariklo in Aquarius from November 2021 through January 2028. New negotiations and drafting of budgets become that much more challenging as you deal with cheaters, on and off, throughout 2001-KF77 in Aquarius from December 2021 through December 2028. New negotiations and drafting of budgets become even more challenging as you deal with droves and droves of new partners, enemies, rivals, cheaters and a bunch of people just plain lost throughout 2001-BL41 in Aquarius from December 2021 through January 2024.

It is clear that these nuisances want to make such obstructions permanent. Clients express bitter contempt for these “professionals” and their “professional” arrangement as Asbolus conjunct Bienor squares Neptune from December 2021 through June 2022. Another front on a long-term war.

To your advantage, new laws take effect as 1998-BU48 transits Libra from November 2021 through March 2022. Be grateful. Having the law as a tool and a weapon on your side will become invaluable throughout Chariklo conjunct 2001-KF77 from December 2021 through April 2027. You will be forced to distinguish irrational, academic idealists who, while they have no idea that what they are trying to achieve is impossible, nevertheless obey the law, from narcissistic anarchists in corporate garb who complain that the sirens of the convoy of state trooper police cars chasing them on the highway interfere with their blasting sound system as they vault unsteadily forward at 120 miles per hour.

Despite this, negotiations will be settled. You hold the podium and the gathered throngs clap for you during Cyllarus opposite Chariklo conjunct 2001-KF77 conjunct 2001-BL41 during and after Christmas.

Jupiter square the North Node in late December defies mathematical reality. Don’t worry – mathematical reality will reassert itself more and more throughout the North Node in Taurus from January 2022 to June 2023 – beginning, with a vengeance, during Pluto trine the North Node from January to March.

But not necessarily immediately. Because Jupiter in Pisces from January through April will empower those who intend to obstruct you, it behooves you to recall wise military strategy, “In order to stamp out corruption, you must first let it thrive.”

“Fine,” you say, “As long as we keep to budget.” But that’s not the plan. Therefore, count to ten, then count to one hundred, when some charlatan salesperson does a PowerPoint slide show to try to sell you an enormously expensive bill of goods as the North Node squares 2003-WL7 opposite Crantor during February and March, “Only over your dead body!”

Relative to the military strategy required by Jupiter in Pisces, bosses and managers gerrymander and overlap the duties of various departments to flush out and to uproot current entrenched channels of communication during 2002-GZ32 sextile Jupiter sextile Uranus conjunct Albion during February. Strangely, both on account of and despite this, workplace romances either emerge to the surface from subterranean hiding places or commence anew in different subterranean hiding places as Venus conjunct Mars in Capricorn in February.

Most likely, neither new nor old workplace romances interest the powers that be, who now target specific individuals, as Cyllarus in Cancer opposes Pluto conjunct Amycus in Capricorn from February to May. Concurrently –not that you particularly care – the fact that either old or new romantic partners oppose you, and do so vocally, as Venus conjuncts Mars in Aquarius in March, clearly annoys you.

What doesn’t annoy you, but, in fact, inspires you: Ambitious bosses who announce long-term goals during 1999-OX3 in Taurus from March 2022 through March 2027. Even so, accept, right now, that you and such ambitious bosses will not always agree.

More genuinely frustrating to you – not aggravating, but deeper than that, because the obstacles inherent to the problem thwarts your attempts at control – involve the vagueness of the written law and the cavalier approaches to that written law by those charged to enforce it as Chiron conjuncts 2000-QB243 from February 2022 through May 2024. Rule of thumb: If others do not intend to put forth their full and best effort, you should do nothing.

Dishonest people make an aggressive power play during Aphidas opposite Jupiter conjunct Nessus from February to March.

Clients make aggressive demands and issue outright ultimatums of terms, tasks and deadlines to dour and profoundly serious and therefore reputable business partners as Saturn in Aquarius trines Asbolus conjunct Bienor conjunct 1996-TL66 from March to June, that, disturbingly, employees will not execute, and may in fact impede, as Okyrhoe conjunct Jupiter conjunct Neptune squares Asbolus conjunct Bienor conjunct 1996-TL66 in April. Bosses may blame you, but if they don’t help you, escalate the issue to their bosses. Those who expect you to take all the blame do not respect that the blame game will only go so far.

As for your own priorities, try to extract new rookie employees from entrenched corrupt practitioners before the cause becomes hopeless as Okyrhoe conjuncts Neptune from March 2022 to March 2023. Use uniformed police or an undercover cop or detective to shake this tree as Hylonome sextiles Okyrhoe conjunct Jupiter conjunct Neptune in April. Question the entire group together, then each member of the group individually, about such issues currently under question as Okyrhoe conjunct Jupiter conjunct Neptune sextiles the North Node in April. Promulgate more widespread disinformation throughout the firm so that nobody will consider making official inquiries as Okyrhoe conjunct Jupiter conjunct Neptune trines 1998-VG44 conjunct 2001-SQ73 in April.

Difficult partners and rivals aggravate bosses intensely as Saturn squares the North Node in April. Remain silent and aloof.

You send your most talented people as consultants to attract and to out honest players amongst liars and cheaters during 1998-BU48 trine Pluto conjunct Amycus from April through August. Thereupon, as a result, honest players who swam in the dirty water with the corrupt fish get the job done, forcing a reform of the workplace, as Jupiter conjunct Venus sextile Pluto conjunct Amycus, both stationing from Direct to Retrograde Motion, in late April. Even so, what those honest players and honest sharks learn will remain proprietary institutional, and not public, knowledge, as Jupiter conjunct Venus trines Cyllarus in late April.

All of this impels you to expand your client base, operating territory and professional opportunities during Jupiter in Aries from May to October. Indeed, Cyllarus in Leo from June 2022 through July 2039 makes you extremely hungry for the professional and public adulation and respect which you have earned over the decades. Don’t get ahead of yourself – this is a step-by-step process. Take the initial steps so as to commence and to manifest such expansion as Jupiter transits Aries in early 2023. Plan to conquer your empire when Neptune transits Aries from 2025 to 2039.

But reform of the workplace is not yet complete. Dishonest players sing foul songs of deceit replete with vicious invective, accusation and curses as Bienor transits Cancer from July 2022 through January 2023 – and, as dramatic and as forceful the testimony, that testimony is not necessarily accurate or truthful. Disturbingly, truthful testimony will manifest as extremely loud public outbursts and counteraccusations that will unnerve everybody, including a very spooked general public, as Asbolus transits Cancer from mid-September to mid-October.

Bosses represent the wild card, secret password and institutional keyword to the expansion of your client base, operating territory and professional opportunities, which they strongly favor, as Uranus conjunct the North Node from July to September. So why the delay during Retrograde Jupiter from August to November? The basic scenario: Bosses have information about your associates that you don’t during 2002-VR130 square 2002-CR46 conjunct the South Node opposite Uranus conjunct the North Node during August and September.

 This will take some time. Bosses will provide you with only the information you will need to determine who is lying and why during 1998-BU48 in Libra from September 2022 through August 2047. You must dismantle and rebuild a lot of your personal relationships and their ensuring overlapping interrelationships which have built up over time.

Some such dismantling will be explosive. Other such dismantling may appear anti-climactic, but will poison with a residue of ongoing intrigue which you must steam-clean to absolute sterilization.

Thereus conjunct Aphidas from September 2022 through August 2023 insists that there is no reason to despair whatsoever. You have all the skill and experience in the world – and you have deep resources of employees, skilled vendors and potential employees and vendors upon whom you can call should you need to make any personnel changes yourself. This short-term strategic application will prove quite durable for quite awhile.

Bosses argue with partners or rivals over the budget during Saturn square Uranus from September to November. Tell all of them, “When you need a final solution, I will make myself available.”

Aggressive and angry clients demand a redress and reform of business relations with you, your employees and your company overall during Retrograde Mars in Gemini from November 2022 to Martin Luther King Day 2023. A lot of this is intended to address the entrenched corruption of a very specific group of employees – the same group of employees you targeted during March and April – as Stationary Mars square Neptune during October and November. The consultants you hire to work with them as 2003-WL7 transits Virgo from October through February 2023 force the issues – but if they force the issues in specific ways, corrupt practitioners will be unable to cause any backlash.

Exposure of such corruption accelerates and escalates during Retrograde Jupiter in very late Pisces during November.

 You do not like the tone of an email which you receive from a boss or rival colleague in a different department during 2001-SQ73 square Elatus during November.

Furthermore, as you hear these employees under investigation for corruption mention that individual’s name as 2001-SQ73 trines Jupiter from November to December, you intuit the presence of a behind-the-scenes mastermind. Leave this saboteur to your expert consultants, who are able to coerce corrupt practitioners into making incriminating decisions in writing, on camera, or within computer databases or programming protocol as Elatus transits Scorpio from December 2022 through March 2023.

The powers that be remove dishonest and corrupt practitioners from the workplace during Direct Motion Jupiter in very late Pisces during December. Even better: No more fools, knaves or charlatans as partners, only legitimate professionals and real, genuine experts, as Chariklo conjuncts 2003-CO1 from December 2022 through March 2027. Ironically, yet benevolently, bosses view all these experts, true experts though they be, as an outright annoyance, and tell you so, as 2003-CO1 conjunct 2001-BL41 squares the North Node during December. Smile as you assert, “They are a necessary evil.”

Bosses do laugh in appreciation, but then want to set up a meeting with you, with the warning, “Your management of your current work group, of whose performance I heartily approve, is about to get a lot more complicated,” as 2002-GZ32 trines the North Node from December 2022 through January 2023.

Well, well! Perhaps in anticipation of this, now may be the time to expand your client base, operating territory and professional opportunities as Jupiter transits Aries from late December 2022 through April 2023. Suspensefully, your boss cryptically asserts, “We must protect you from the interference of the infrastructure at this company who only exist so as to serve you,” as 2001-SQ73 opposes Pluto conjunct Amycus from December 2022 through February 2023.

VIRGO
2022

 

Whether you were a student, a student athlete, a high school or college athletic coach, or a parent with a high-school or college student or student athlete as a child in your care when Jupiter entered Capricorn in December 2019, you were not, at the time, considering compliance to, defiance of, or even the existence of, COVID-19 vaccination protocol. If you were just a single person dating, or two parents having their first child, COVID-19 vaccination protocol complicated everything.

So, okay: COVID-19 is the reality, these are the new rules, so we’ll just follow the rules, and then, hopefully, everything will improve. But, well, the rules – political factions disputed the existence of the coronavirus and objected to the need for any such rules. Well, whatever, that’s them – we’re Virgos and we follow rules. Hell, Virgos enforce rules. So that’s that.

Then George Floyd dies while under arrest. Massive protests form. Riots follow the legitimate protests at night. The only people who seem to be wearing their masks are the looters on surveillance videotape.

Virgos do not feel comfortable in environments with amorphous or non-existent rules, laws or social mores – and, as a result, Virgos in the United States during 2020 and 2021 felt very uncomfortable. The explanation that the turmoil currently afflicting the U.S.A. occurred because all of America reviewed what was true or false about their country for the past 220 years because of the upcoming Pluto Returns of the United States of America throughout 2022 really did not persuade you. Then, when the January 6 Insurrection occurred, you felt justified that this explanation of outright bad and inhuman behavior was simply unsatisfactory.

You are adamant. You believe that youth, and particularly young men, require copious protection from and deep training about shifting social mores throughout Pluto conjunct Amycus in Capricorn from December 2020 to February 2023. You are extremely paranoid about what unconscious social maladies COVID-19 is implanting in young boys’ and young men’s psyche so that they will develop neuroses in order to accommodate and to adapt to social discourse both in the short term and in the long term during Pholus conjunct 2002-GZ32 from December 2020 through November 2022.

You refuse to tolerate any bad habits amongst you and yours because the rest of the country is falling apart, defacing property, stealing from stores in broad daylight, baiting the police. You are determined to get all your family together, along with all the children under your charge, during Retrograde Venus in Capricorn during December 2021 and January 2022, to emphasize, “That which was true in December 2019 is still true today!” Neither Joe Biden nor Donald Trump are part of this equation. This is not about politics or history. This is about parenting. This is about personal conduct.

That is the hard part – and very hard it is, indeed. But get back to your job at the professional workplace. (No, not your “home office” or your “den.” Your desk or work station at some commercial office building or factory.) Those employers wanting immediate gains who launched quickly throughout 2021 believed that ad hoc changes along the way would be enough. However, Saturn in Aquarius from December 2020 through February 2023 favors the step-by-step monotony of perfection so that there will never be a reason to stop and to go backward, to recall profit, to reimburse customers and to pay regulatory fines. The former will do whatever they want and the latter will take over, pay the price and drive the train thereafter.

Sticking to the straight and narrow will put you in a position to discuss what to do next with the more radical yet intelligent within your workgroup throughout Chariklo in Aquarius from November 2021 through January 2028 as you build a meaningful and expansive political alliance. This will help you not only keep the cheaters and the one-trick ponies at bay throughout 2001-KF77 in Aquarius from December 2021 through December 2028, but will also allow you to scout out the crowded field for the very best talent as 2001-BL41 transits Aquarius from December 2021 through January 2024.

More importantly, forging meaningful alliances with the more radical but intelligent amongst the workgroup will allow you to take what others will view as a much more revolutionary stand (“Fiscally Conservative Democrats for Mathematics and Arithmetic”) as Jupiter squares the North Node in late December. Taking those steps to work with the more radical yet intelligent amongst you will allow you and them some modicum of self-determination amongst both those above and those below you.

Realize, however, that you can’t push negotiations too far during Cyllarus opposite Chariklo conjunct 2001-KF77 conjunct 2001-BL41 during and after Christmas – certain conservative power brokers will only open discussions on very narrow terms. Discuss with partners how to handle what you need but can or cannot afford within or despite the restraints of your operating budget during 1998-BU48 in Libra from November 2021 through March 2022. You will have very little money with which to play as Ceres conjuncts the North Node during January. For Virgo, fiscal conservatism represents upward professional mobility throughout the North Node in Taurus from January 2022 to June 2023 – with your first big score happening around Pluto trines the North Node from January to March.

Jupiter in Pisces from January through April 2022 denotes that, because complications will arise, you will only get you so far with any of the innovations and changes that you had wanted and planned to make. Keep your public agenda of what you expect to achieve much less ambitious than your private agenda. Always overshoot your public agenda in the face of a jealous enemy. Fulfill as best you can your ambitious personal agenda before the ruthless face in the mirror.

It therefore behooves you and the more responsible leadership within your department to seize control of protocol so that bosses will no longer accuse all of you of playing fast and loose with the rules throughout Chariklo conjunct 2001-KF77 from December 2021 through April 2027. That way, when bosses refer to surveillance and videotape to accuse, justly, one of the liars and cheaters within your department with cheating, fraud or even outright theft as the North Node squares 2003-WL7 opposite Crantor during February and March, you will nevertheless maintain full credibility. Otherwise, envious bosses will attack your reputation during Asbolus conjunct Bienor square Neptune from December 2021 through June 2022.

Even so, 2002-GZ32 sextile Jupiter sextile Uranus conjunct Albion during February is an outstanding opportunity to demonstrate how you can implement technological upgrades and innovations of potentially daunting scale. Men, especially in IT: Showing off doing physical yet intelligent labor makes you look totally sexy as Venus conjunct Mars in Capricorn in February! Attract positive female attention. Attract further positive female attention from within upper management by explaining the protocol of that upon which you work clearly without patronizing anybody’s intelligence as Cyllarus in Cancer opposes Pluto conjunct Amycus in Capricorn from February to May.

Dishonest colleagues and employees within your department will repeatedly sabotage your work and the work of your entire workgroup with a dishonest and deliberate misapplication of hardware or computer code as Chiron conjuncts 2000-QB243 from February 2022 through May 2024.

Now you might know that this individual is a cheater and a liar who just cheated and lied, and you will demand justice – which to you, just might be that employee’s head on a platter. But this proves to be a microcosm of what you will learn over the next several years as 1999-OX3 transits Taurus from March 2022 through March 2027. You are not the judge or jury. It makes no difference that those in charge of rewarding and punishing others do not even understand what others did, do or should do: Acting as judge or jury will hurt you and only you.

As a result of recent upgrades and innovations, you execute huge jobs with stunning flair as Venus conjuncts Mars in Aquarius in March. You and trusted partners take a life-or-death attitude to massive projects that affect everybody in your company and vast swaths of the public – then do an exemplary job during Aphidas opposite Jupiter conjunct Nessus from February to March. But don’t gloat. Your demonstration of otherworldly skill is bad for certain bosses’ digestion as Saturn in Aquarius trine Asbolus conjunct Bienor conjunct 1996-TL66 from March to June. Some of these bosses not only criticize your team’s home run trot but in fact the home run itself, singling out the more vulnerable members of your team as Okyrhoe conjunct Jupiter conjunct Neptune square Asbolus conjunct Bienor conjunct 1996-TL66 in April.

Be careful. This is a bluff intended to induce you to lose your temper (everybody at your job knows you have a temper!) as Saturn squares the North Node in April. The criticism of the home run represented blatant disinformation as Okyrhoe conjunct Jupiter conjunct Neptune trines 1998-VG44 conjunct 2001-SQ73 in April intended to fool the more inexperienced members of your team as Okyrhoe conjuncts Neptune from March 2022 to March 2023. Walk through the unfair and dishonest criticism with that inexperienced member of your team in such as way during Hylonome sextile Okyrhoe conjunct Jupiter conjunct Neptune in April that communicates that certain bosses are dishonest during Okyrhoe conjunct Jupiter conjunct Neptune sextile the North Node in April.

Keeping the tone positive is particularly important as you approach your hardest and most significant challenge, with its widest application to your customer base and the general public as Jupiter conjunct Venus sextiles Pluto conjunct Amycus, both stationing from Direct to Retrograde Motion, in late April. You can demonstrate your proficiency and mastery of your entire skill set in such a project as a result of 1998-BU48 trine Pluto conjunct Amycus from April through August – and, if you are wise, you will give all of your teammates credit for something for which you alone are responsible. Such modesty and discretion will impress many in upper management who will respect and reward what you said and why you said it during Jupiter conjunct Venus trine Cyllarus in late April.

Despite your phenomenal achievement during this period, you will learn during Jupiter in Aries from May to October that you are simply not allowed to be that good.

If the question about your excellence, and whether or not you are allowed to be so excellent, arises again as Jupiter transits Aries in early 2023, hire either a Jungian psychotherapist to explain to you that a health individual like you feels sick, it is because the healthy individual feels the sickness of the sick environment – which, unfortunately, is normal. This lesson will prepare you for when Neptune transits Aries from 2025 to 2039, when you learn about the relationship between, and the separation of, ego and ability, in the individual, amongst groups . . . and within sociopaths. The truth of dark lessons!

While the increase in surveillance which you will feel at the beginning of Cyllarus in Leo from June 2022 through July 2039 is not directed at you personally, it is not going away, either. It is part and parcel of the fact that you are merely part of “the system.”

No one individual can be bigger than “the system.” Realize, that if and when and how often you complain about such surveillance during Bienor in Cancer from July 2022 through January 2023, you send a message to the powers that be that says to them that you think that you are not part of, or are bigger than, “the system.” Therefore, if something unusually bad happens at or behind the scenes of your workplace, certain bosses will view you as the prime “usual suspect” as Asbolus transits Cancer from mid-September to mid-October.

Hence the desire for permanent liberation as Uranus conjunct the North Node from July to September. But permanent liberation is not possible within “the system.” Indeed, 2002-VR130 square 2002-CR46 conjunct the South Node opposite Uranus conjunct the North Node during August and September reminds you that any lateral movement within your company or within your industry sector carries with it the personal associations and institutional affiliations of the past, what employers call “pedigree” and what you know as “the ties that bind.”

No, permanent liberation represents an entirely different tract. Are you writing a book? Are you an artist trying to get into a Chelsea gallery? Do you have an invention that you are trying to copywrite or to patent? Can you go back to school to get a Masters or Ph.D.? These are not part of that system to which you report; these are the lottery tickets of your liberation.

Ultimately, 1998-BU48 in Libra from September 2022 through August 2047 insists that, however, you seek to liberate yourself, you can only do so within the boundaries of the written law. But there is another exhortation in this transit: You need partners. You need a posse. You cannot succeed as a lone wolf.

The backlash against your professional success commences during Retrograde Jupiter from August to November. Hostile bosses seek ways to bait your temper, particularly addressing how they are “considering” or threatening to cut your operating budget during Saturn square Uranus from September to November.

Making matters much, much, much, much more treacherous, you are inclined, prone and in fact willing to escalate conflict during 2003-WL7 in Virgo from October through February 2023. Realize this upfront so that you don’t unwittingly and unintentionally destroy yourself by raising your voice and cursing out your boss!

Keeping such disturbing apocalyptic extremes firmly in mind, if you have already drafted up master resumes and know the full extent of your skill set, Thereus conjunct Aphidas from September 2022 through August 2023 promises that you will then have the advantage while hunting on the job market. Know what you want so that you may pounce on it when you see it. An unresolved issue involving a boss or bosses dominates the work environment during Retrograde Mars in Gemini from November 2022 to Martin Luther King Day 2023. The above warning about destroying yourself by raising your voice and cursing out your boss is not a joke at all, as Stationary Mars square Neptune during October and November warns that such a boss or bosses may manipulate your own work group against you in order to induce you to raise your temper. Making matters worse, your partners, spouse, rival or work group will view this issue quite irrationally, with acute anger.

Be particularly leery of a supposed ally who either tells you certain information, or blatantly lies, as 2001-SQ73 squares Elatus during November, while giving your partner, spouse, rival or work group entirely different information, truthful or otherwise, during 2001-SQ73 trine Jupiter from November to December.

Frantic professional episodes which escalate during Retrograde Jupiter in very late Pisces during November leave you and everybody else subject to overwhelmingly acute psychological overload. For your own part, do not be the individual to use a word, phrase or even computer code during Elatus in Scorpio from December 2022 through March 2023 which will result in immediate termination, universal public disapproval and permanent condemnation.

Ride through Direct Motion Jupiter in very late Pisces during December with the attitude that everybody in your group execute the bottom-line status quo with as little discussion as possible.

As a totally unexpected blessing, a truly capable new professional with complimentary skill set and proven experience joins your workgroup as Chariklo conjuncts 2003-CO1 from December 2022 through March 2027. Moreover, in order to make the most of this benevolent new development, 2003-CO1 conjunct 2001-BL41 square the North Node during December urges you to tell your colleagues and your work group to remain positive in the light of new regulations and legal demands upon them from bosses offering flat, blunt and counterintuitive legal dictates.

New laws and new rules for student athletes, high school and college athletic coaches and parents of student athletes, as well as parents of all students, as 2002-GZ32 trines the North Node from December 2022 through January 2023. Mothers of students and student athletes now begin to flex their political power as they enlist capable lawyers, law enforcement officials and private detectives on their side pro bono during 2001-SQ73 opposite Pluto conjunct Amycus from December 2022 through February 2023. Take heed.

Again, Jupiter in Aries from late December 2022 through April 2023 reminds you, once again: You are simply not allowed to be that good.

 

LIBRA
2022

 

It did not matter to you when Jupiter entered Capricorn in December 2019 who would wind up running on the Democratic ticket in the 2020 U.S. Presidential Election eleven months hence – yes, you were worried about what was going on in your city, state, province or country.

It did not matter whether or not you supported or opposed President Donald J. Trump. It did not matter whether or not you lived in the United States, or whether you lived in Canada or Mexico. The whole political condition within the U.S.A. made everybody argue. Many people used their political disagreements as an excuse to refuse to cooperate with parents, children, neighbors, local citizens trying to coordinate mundane activities in the city where you lived, uniformed law enforcement. And the White Supremacist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia on August 12, 2019! Yes, you were very worried.

Add to that worry the confusion that you endured during the announcement of the COVID-19 quarantine in mid-March 2020, and you were ready to tear your hair out. A virus from China shuts down the entire U.S. economy – and shuts down the entire world. Stay at home until everything gets better!

The fact that work continued, that your paycheck continued, that your ability to control your financial destiny continued – finally, that all is good is sufficient reason to suck it all up. The fact that the U.S. government took away your discretion to master your own destiny overall insulted you – but it wasn’t like the U.S.A. singled you out of a crowd! This was much bigger than you. This was even bigger than the U.S.A. This was, this is, a plague.

Not everybody believed this. Other people just as insulted as you that the U.S. government took away their discretion to master their own destiny overall decided to buck the trend. Then COVID-19, the plague, became an issue of (You who have studied their American history have already guessed it!) “Federal versus states’ rights.” (Thank you, John C. Calhoun!) Did the Bilderbergs invite Florida Governor Ron DeSantis or Texas Governor Greg Abbott to their annual conference? Is this a plague – or is COVID-19 optional?

The long and the short of it is that you really do not know what you need to do in order to heal your family, city, state, province or country and you have no clue how much money or time it is going to cost you. Still, you must protect your family, city, state, province or country throughout Pluto conjunct Amycus in Capricorn from December 2020 to February 2023 until you figure out the agenda along with its price tag.

And, indeed, the agenda, not obvious from the beginning, became no clearer throughout 2020. You failed to understand how the death of George Floyd generated a more acute reaction from all Americans than the terrorist attacks on New York City’s World Trade Center and Washington D.C.’s Pentagon on September 11, 2001. However, you understood all too well how the massive endless protests were peaceful, but that they were immediately followed by violent, destructive riots, replete with retail looting.

In the end, what made the most sense to you was how all that activity during the summer of 2020 represented a highly public referendum on everything that has happened in the U.S.A. since 1800. You intuitively accept that, given that the Pluto Returns of the United States of America occur throughout 2022, the collective mandate to transform and to grow up induced all of its citizens to fall apart.

All this bad behavior makes you particularly suspicious of corrupt and dishonest local politicians and their operatives who suddenly become way too friendly with you throughout Pholus conjunct 2002-GZ32 from December 2020 through November 2022 – and, indeed, you are absolutely correct. Worst case scenario: Such corrupt and dishonest local politicians and their operatives may be trying to execute a particularly complex and convoluted way to entrap you. After witnessing all that happened in Washington D.C. at the January 6 Insurrection, you don’t need anybody to convince you to act upon your paranoia.

Now, however, at this point, you have all the information you need, going forward. You have more than enough confidence to determine whether all this energy flows in its proper proportion and direction during 1998-BU48 in Libra from November 2021 through March 2022 – and so you should. Now, you can return to your state of mind and assumptions about the status quo of your city, state, province or country as Jupiter entered Capricorn in December 2019 during Retrograde Venus in Capricorn during December 2021 and January 2022 to consider, “Where was I right? Where was I wrong? What is the correct position and strategy to take going forward?”

You have considered this. Despite the fact that all hear the clarion call for greater political radicalism during Chariklo in Aquarius from November 2021 through January 2028, you continue to retrench yourself into your foundation of fiscal conservatism. More importantly, you identify, and take notes about what you identify, to which you may refer later, those who should know better from those who vehemently refuse to know better, as the latter invariably and inexorably attempt to corrupt the former, as Chariklo conjuncts 2001-KF77 from December 2021 through April 2027.

As you see it such radicalism is merely psychological enthusiasm for change. However, enthusiasm does not constitute intelligent strategy. So-called allies will seek short cuts – and short cuts could have destructive consequences fairly quickly. First, identify what will sink the ship so that you can prepare the best defense of all: Ruthless, extremely aggressive and high-scoring offense. Then, it is up to you to identify the correct yet hard way to do things during Saturn in Aquarius from December 2020 through February 2023. And the correct yet hard way is not obvious to identify at all.

Expect no help. At first, you distinguish the cheaters, sharp practitioners and rookie hot shots represented by 2001-KF77 in Aquarius from December 2021 through December 2028 from the hundreds and thousands just trying to learn the game during 2001-BL41 in Aquarius from December 2021 through January 2024. Then, through hard work and good karma, when that ostensibly ideal human being makes you an offer to do a deal during Cyllarus opposite Chariklo conjunct 2001-KF77 conjunct 2001-BL41 during and after Christmas, you know it is right. You do not hesitate.

You are neither surprised nor empathetic when sour-souled adversaries suffer broad and extended loss as Asbolus conjunct Bienor squares Neptune from December 2021 through June 2022, “One gets what one earns.”

Such powerful and just victories give you the will to continue. However, do you believe in mathematics, arithmetic and economics enough to buck the idealistic trend as Jupiter squares the North Node in late December? “I don’t care if the numbers do not add up – this involves human rights!” Unbearably stupid people will consider you heartless – and, even though the judgment originates from unbearably stupid people, the judgment still hurts.

Even so, you are not going to sacrifice your intellect because dumb people who wear their hearts on their sleeves sneer at your education. Ceres conjunct the North Node during January is an indication that masses of people must get their incomes, lifestyles and budgets in line within a correct microeconomy and valid national, as well as international, microeconomics.

It is not a Kumbaya moment. Soldier on. Taking an unusually contradictory conservative economic opinion will win you a political victory, alone, during Pluto trine the North Node from January to March, that you would have had to share with so many other people earlier.

When discussing budgets or corporate expenditures, the North Node in Taurus from January 2022 to June 2023 is not a continuum, the sum of all your different stands divided by that number, but, really, a holistic statement of what you really believe. Jupiter in Pisces from January through April, ruled by the principle that the total is greater than (the sum) (the multiplication) of its parts, thereupon compounds all of the different stands that you take and the holistic statement which contains them to manufacture . . . karma. Realize that your inclination to quantify what others qualify makes you vulnerable not only to criticism but your professional and political downfall.

None of this presupposes a blank slate – you either carry with you the benefit of accumulated favorable karma or the burden of accumulated unfavorable blame. Therefore, much depends upon how you respond to what you see in the photograph or video of the crime taking place – whether or not you are in the photograph or video – as the North Node squares 2003-WL7 opposite Crantor during February and March. Your personal tack on the situation is valuable, vulnerable and in play. You must say and do the right thing.

Remote and office work station complications multiply and abound during 2002-GZ32 sextile Jupiter sextile Uranus conjunct Albion during February. The overall issue is maximizing workplace flow, but the subtext undercurrent persists that some people are treated unfairly well and others are treated unfairly. Now, as a parent in your house, you can say, “Because I said so,” – which you and your spouse do often do. However, because you say, and have said, “Because I said so,” in the workplace does not mean it is wise . . . or morally right.

Speaking of your home life with your spouse – Venus conjunct Mars in Capricorn in February, concurrent with Valentine’s Day, should be all rights represent a peak of your romantic relationship with your spouse, provided, however, that both you and your spouse have determined how your respective jobs would provide the reciprocal work/life balance necessary to make both your romance and your family grow throughout and beyond Cyllarus in Cancer opposite Pluto conjunct Amycus in Capricorn from February to May. If you and your spouse have not been addressing these hard issues together, problems which plague your relationship will rise to the surface as Chiron conjunct 2000-QB243 from February 2022 through May 2024 without any clear means to address and to eradicate them.

As a result, the long honeymoon which should have ended in an exotic foreign romantic adventure during Venus conjunct Mars in Aquarius in March, a veritable tunnel of love proximate to some gorgeous Mexican beach near Acapulco, Cancun or Los Cabos may end up in arguments, contemplating and seriously considering separation and divorce – particularly if one or either of you bring up a perpetually hypothetical or actual very large-scale purchase sometime during 1999-OX3 in Taurus from March 2022 through March 2027 that neither or both of you can afford just yet.

Luckily, you have a ready, willing and eager work team more than committed to going that extra yard during Aphidas opposite Jupiter conjunct Nessus from February to March. Unfortunately, for whatever reason, you are more than inclined to announce, “My way or the highway,” during Saturn in Aquarius trine Asbolus conjunct Bienor conjunct 1996-TL66 from March to June when “all for one and one for all,” would prove much more popular, effective . . . and correct.

Expressing such a sentiment makes enemies out of allies as Okyrhoe conjunct Jupiter conjunct Neptune squares Asbolus conjunct Bienor conjunct 1996-TL66 in April, while other bosses win the popularity contest by asserting, “We cannot do it without you,” as Hylonome sextiles Okyrhoe conjunct Jupiter conjunct Neptune in April. Realize that it is your team who will decide if you are a winner or a loser, and not the other way around, as Okyrhoe conjunct Jupiter conjunct Neptune sextiles the North Node in April.

Rookies, bright-eyed, bushy-tailed and ready to do it to it, expect leadership, and not attitude – from you and everybody else during Okyrhoe conjunct Jupiter conjunct Neptune trine 1998-VG44 conjunct 2001-SQ73 in April. To these rookies, first impressions stick during Okyrhoe conjunct Neptune from March 2022 to March 2023 – and will not change.

The public relations emanating from this workgroup either for or against you as Chiron conjunct 2000-QB243 from February 2022 through May 2024 will be as tangible as a vote. Any attempt to punish those who just plain don’t like you during Saturn square the North Node in April will only cut your own throat.

You’ve already determined who the right people for this job are during 1998-BU48 trine Pluto conjunct Amycus from April through August. Unless you positively and honestly appreciate, from the very beginning, that your work team absolutely wants to, can and will do the best job possible, because that is the most natural and humane thing to do, you will be courting failure that you earn. Indeed, unless you treat your work team as professionals from the very beginning, you will only be able to offer them insulting threats and ultimatums as Saturn squares the North Node in April – and nobody will love you for it. A positive attitude of love and cooperation means absolutely everything.

As predestined, your team makes their best effort during Jupiter conjunct Venus sextile Pluto conjunct Amycus, both stationing from Direct to Retrograde Motion, in late April. This Herculean effort makes the boss who led them a conquering emperor and empress during Jupiter conjunct Venus trine Cyllarus in late April. The only question: Was the boss leading that team’s effort you or a competitor who stepped in to supersede you?

All of a sudden, the blank slate that you thought you might see at the beginning of the year emerges as Jupiter transits Aries from May to October – but you have received neither reward nor punishment. However, this blank slate is really just a white film screen against which your mind will project the afterimages of the recent past. The real blank slate, hard as Formica, emerges as you receive your reward or punishment when Jupiter transits Aries in early 2023. As long as you continue on, or only if you abandon the road to oblivion to reestablish yourself on the high road, these rewards will metamorphize, manifesting as allies, as Neptune transits Aries from 2025 to 2039 – but if you do not abandon that road to oblivion, those punishments metamorphize, manifesting as . . . nemeses.

 Formidable new clients, associates and bosses arrive on the scene for the duration starting Cyllarus in Leo from June 2022 through July 2039 after the recent climax of professional activity. All these new faces will greet you with a very positive attitude and all the optimism of a twenty-year future – but, although nobody will speak a word to you about it, your reputation will precede you.

In this context, initiating a discussion by invoking a long-standing professional complaint is a bad idea. However, if your bosses or colleagues do not believe that you have managed others in a positive fashion, one of them, particularly a female, may voice complaints about you as Bienor transits Cancer from July 2022 through January 2023. Whether you disagree or simply defend your actions, to perpetuate the discussion at all in any capacity is a mistake, as it makes you vulnerable to widespread criticism amongst all these new employees if a crisis arises on your watch in the near future. Shrug off this pointed criticism and change the subject to something light, positive . . . and not insulting to anybody.

You must proactively identify when trouble is brewing. Whatever the context, circumstances or reasons, you abandon your characteristic diplomatic ways to voice what you believe to be the blunt and unvarnished truth as Uranus conjunct the North Node from July to September. Blunt and unvarnished it may be, but you are highly likely to encounter opposition which counters that what you assert is not “truth” but your perspective – which they do not share.

Such opposition notwithstanding, 2002-VR130 square 2002-CR46 conjunct the South Node opposite Uranus conjunct the North Node during August and September says that “blunt and unvarnished” is the way to go, particularly as both political enemies and your own shady personal connections have an interest in painting you as dishonorable and above reproach, but in fact susceptible to corruption. Be particularly wary of one who may assert, “I am not so arrogant and autocratic as to assert that my own perspective represents the truth.”

Dismissing such an assertion as a rhetorical flourish would be a real public relations blunder. On one level, sure, 1998-BU48 in Libra from September 2022 through August 2047 makes you must more confident – in certain circumstances, supremely confident. Conversely, one who doesn’t like – or trust – you, may say, “That individual is full of themselves.” Beauty, or lack thereof, is in the eyes of the beholder. However, in the short term, you will have to compete for credit, merit, rewards and a promotion with others who will claim that they led the collective team effort to victory during March and April starting Retrograde Jupiter from August to November.

Whereas, earlier in 2022, you emphasized pragmatism over charity, you now appear to champion tight-fisted avarice over legitimate compassion as Saturn squares Uranus from September to November. Don’t take your allies’ support for granted.

Be open to discussions and communications with those who say that they have information which will help your legal case or cause as Thereus conjuncts Aphidas from September 2022 through August 2023, but don’t solicit their total cooperation or full divulgence immediately. Wait until very uncomfortable and contradictory facts come to light as 2003-WL7 transits Virgo from October through February 2023 before welcoming full communication and cooperation.

Disturbingly, certain new professional bosses and associates review your own recent work history more closely as Asbolus transits Cancer from mid-September to mid-October. The direction of the rhetoric is intended to put you on the defensive on a routine basis.

The move to create a revisionist historical narrative of all that you have accomplished gathers considerable steam during Retrograde Mars in Gemini from November 2022 to Martin Luther King Day 2023. Much more treacherously, you encounter very hostile, pointed and damning legal complaints from a colleague or employee whom you have invariably perceived as cooperative and friendly, if not outright timid and obsequious, as Stationary Mars squares Neptune during October and November.

Expect at the very least an internal investigation where you are interrogated, or a threatened or actual deposition of you, as 2001-SQ73 squares Elatus during November. Bosses may demand the same of that accuser, or of select members of your work team, as 2001-SQ73 trines Jupiter from November to December – but bosses favor, if not outright represent, them, against you.

Your positive or negative demeanor or stance during March and April becomes evidence for or against your cause during Retrograde Jupiter in very late Pisces during November. Indeed, every email you have ever sent and the exact language of every phrase you have ever uttered becomes legal fodder for or against you as Elatus transits Scorpio from December 2022 through March 2023. Ultimately, whether you survive because you behaved positively in March and April or endure termination because you did not, your professional position during Direct Motion Jupiter in very late Pisces during December is weakened to the exact degree your work team accepts or rejects you.

Luckily, you now discern environments or meet people where innovators, including political scientists and think-tank level political ideologues, collaborate with genuine experts, some of them in the political circles you inhabit and favor, as Chariklo conjuncts 2003-CO1 from December 2022 through March 2027. However, at least for now, do not discuss actual politics wherein money is in different pipelines of various budgets, or to introduce those experts to the major players behind such active initiatives, as 2003-CO1 conjunct 2001-BL41 squares the North Node during December, to prevent an appearance of fiscal impropriety and corruption.

Indeed, there is a lot of speculation, discussion and hope about all the money coming into the city, state or province during 2001-SQ73 opposite Pluto conjunct Amycus from December 2022 through February 2023 – and where exactly it is going to go. Don’t play games with this – big money on infrastructure upgrades is involved during 2002-GZ32 trine the North Node from December 2022 through January 2023. Remember former Charlotte Mayor and convicted felon Patrick Cannon.

Take these environments and the concomitant innovators, political scientists and think-tank level political ideologues as a sign that you should search for greener pastures where that blank slate is real during Jupiter in Aries from late December 2022 through April 2023.

 

SCORPIO
2022

 

You may recall, as Jupiter entered Capricorn in December 2019, that you harbored significant resentment towards employees who objected to how you, as a boss, told them what to do. This did not confuse or insult you, but, really, simply represented, as you saw it, a strategic affront. Sure, you can be cordial, and understand the value of softening demands – particularly as a public relations offensive. But, as far as you are concerned, public relations is not your core business. The imperative mood exists in all languages for good reason and maximum utility.

In that case, the COVID-19 quarantine made your life easier – you didn’t have to share work space with those who were allergic to your speaking the imperative mood. Then again, all of work became disrupted – and, as a result, it disrupted the entire society-wide culture of productivity. Work “shared” space with the domestic – since when did work “share?”

George Floyd’s death opened your eyes. A criminal suspect resists arrest by three cops – physically – forcing the Minneapolis Police Department to send a fourth, more senior officer to restrain him. The fourth, in coordination with the three, deploying a technique from the MPD’s training manual, succeeds in restraining him – and is subsequently arrested, tried and convicted for killing the suspect because the suspect, who had successfully fought off three arresting police officers physically, died in his custody. Then it hit you: Americans cannot distinguish between legitimate and illegitimate authority.

The George Floyd protests, the riots after the protests, whether or not the COVID-19 virus existed or not and what Dr. Anthony Fauci has to say about it, the 2020 Presidential Election and U.S. President Donald J. Trump’s refusal to concede – an inability to distinguish between legitimate and illegitimate authority.

Finally, the January 6 Insurrection – an inability to distinguish between legitimate and illegitimate authority.

The idea that all the problems in the U.S.A. erupted because all the citizens therein were reconsidering everything that ever happened here, on the land declared the United States of America in 1776, since 1800, did not strike you as outrageous. As for whether or not such citizens did this to prepare for the Pluto Return of the United States of America throughout 2022 ultimately depends upon how closely and deeply you follow and practice astrology – although, you might be willing to concede, “Sure, some people believe that.”

Even so, none of this addresses the issue as you see it. As far as you are concerned, you can distinguish between legitimate and illegitimate authority. Your problem lies with those who can’t.

Because you had worked with proxies in the past when employing those individuals who resented your use of the imperative mood, you appointed a proxy or proxies through whom you can issue your instructions, work with vendors and supervise your employees as they protect your public image and professional reputation as Pluto conjuncts Amycus in Capricorn from December 2020 to February 2023. Simultaneously, you remained on the lookout for a work colleague or employee who converses garrulously and warmly with you, then tries to shut you off like a light switch in order to induce a hostile reaction from you during Pholus conjunct 2002-GZ32 from December 2020 through November 2022 – a hostile reaction which just may be illegal.

You refused to be manipulated. You kept negotiations conservative. You did not underestimate the ruthlessness of local prosecutors, detectives and law enforcement officials who love not only doing their punitive jobs, but who would also get visceral pleasure engineering the bust of a local individual that they orchestrate collectively during 1998-BU48 in Libra from November 2021 through March 2022.

And you have not yielded your position from when Jupiter entered Capricorn in December 2019, as you reflected upon employees’ significant resentment towards how you, as a boss, used the imperative mood. Therefore, it does not escape you, as it, in fact, behooves you during Retrograde Venus in Capricorn during December 2021 and January 2022, to come to more direct terms with why there is a type of person in the, and in your, professional workplace, who refuses to respect the boss and the imperative mood, yet still receives, not punishment from the authorities, but their vigilant, aggressive and legal protections – and how you, Scorpio, plan to coexist with this aberration, contradiction . . . and injustice.

On one level, the common sense of more radical, reckless and extreme factions within your company, party, city, state or province becomes increasingly apparent throughout Chariklo in Aquarius from November 2021 through January 2028, but 2001-BL41 in Aquarius from December 2021 through January 2024 warns that too many neophytes think “more radical is better.” 2001-KF77 in Aquarius from December 2021 through December 2028 will use this and whatever other information or circumstances they can get or control in pursuit of what they really want: Power without responsibility – especially, moreover, given how difficult it is to distinguish the radical from the unscrupulous as Chariklo conjuncts 2001-KF77 from December 2021 through April 2027. But speaking blunt truth as Ceres conjuncts the North Node during January falls on deaf ears – like a homeless man applying for a bank mortgage.

With you and allies amongst the leadership, will you get what you want and need? Much depends upon how exemplary your professional reputations are. If you have demonstrated dignity and statesmanship, then nobody will deny you during Cyllarus opposite Chariklo conjunct 2001-KF77 conjunct 2001-BL41 during and after Christmas – even though they all oppose you. Asbolus conjunct Bienor square Neptune from December 2021 through June 2022 forces you to remember that nobody has forgotten how badly a committed enemy has tried to bring you down all year.

Hang in the deep background and build political capital slowly during Saturn in Aquarius from December 2020 through February 2023.

Earn good faith. After all, victory now will make Jupiter in Pisces from January through April. unbelievably sweet and some parts of 2022 incredibly delicious.

Say, “This is what we need and this is what we can afford,” during Jupiter square the North Node in late December. Even though no spike payment is scheduled, make a very generous spike payment as Pluto trines the North Node from January to March. Rivals, partners and bankers will determine your status for the long term during the North Node in Taurus from January 2022 to June 2023 via these two actions. You will get one chance.

Police who intervene in a public dispute over property between you and somebody else, no matter who owns and who is renting whatever, will specifically arrest you during the North Node square 2003-WL7 opposite Crantor during February and March because they explicitly do not like or trust you. Take photographs of the issues in dispute to provide to your lawyer, to regulators or to the media. Avoid confrontation like the plague.

On the work front, however, things could not be better. Your work crew is more than motivated to put into place technological innovations and teams of target marketers looking to drum up sales, sales, sales as 2002-GZ32 sextiles Jupiter sextiles Uranus conjunct Albion during February – they absolutely embody the Viking spirit! Moreover, as you are the fearless leader, many within your Viking work crew want to make sure that you are happy not only with their work but with your very own fearless leader Viking spouse as Venus conjuncts Mars in Capricorn in February!

As a direct result, Cyllarus in Cancer opposite Pluto conjunct Amycus in Capricorn from February to May wags its finger in your face and admonishes the Scorpion, “Now let that be a lesson to you: Everybody wants to get ahead in business, but the imperative mood is not fun!” Indeed, with 1999-OX3 in Taurus from March 2022 through March 2027 about to stampede into the marketplace, this lesson about work, fun and money should not be filed away as a memory but should be applied to how you do sales and run your workplace now and for the next decade. Happily, you work crew is down with the action during Aphidas opposite Jupiter conjunct Nessus from February to March, “Ten-four and copy, oh, Grand Imperial Poobah!” Turn the malaise around – and play the funky music!

Just don’t make the mistake of believing that everybody in your workplace is your ally. Chiron conjunct 2000-QB243 from February 2022 through May 2024 warns that certain colleagues and employees will create paranoia by creating ambiguity. Refuse to engage the attempts by such employees and colleagues to create doubt. Do not slow down for somebody’s gratuitous and manipulative speedbump.

Now, whether that workplace relationship with your Viking spouse is real or a hilariously fun charade to promote workplace spirit, don’t try to take it beyond your own work crew into the local municipal arena, especially amongst business leaders and politicians, as Venus conjuncts Mars in Aquarius in March. The humorlessness of the situation requires that a press secretary explain and protect the president – certainly not conducive to either dating or a laugh.

Politically, you feel duty-bound to speak against local and municipal trends adversaries try to promulgate as Saturn in Aquarius trine Asbolus conjunct Bienor conjunct 1996-TL66 from March to June – especially after such adversaries try to persuade a loyal member of your work crew and cause over to their side with their rhetoric as Okyrhoe conjunct Jupiter conjunct Neptune squares Asbolus conjunct Bienor conjunct 1996-TL66 in April.

While this is not to say that you should not discuss your strategic and political viewpoints about such adversaries with loyal members of your work crew and cause, Okyrhoe conjunct Neptune from March 2022 to March 2023 denotes that you must realize that it is your responsibility to help the youngest and most impressionable rookies to learn how to think and to speak for themselves. However, if you do so, then Hylonome sextile Okyrhoe conjunct Jupiter conjunct Neptune in April strongly suggests that you do so by prefacing your assertions with the admission that the agenda of such adversaries makes you strategically and professionally vulnerable.

Taking this soft tact, then Okyrhoe conjunct Jupiter conjunct Neptune sextile the North Node in April promises that such loyal member of your work crew, particularly if they are female, will codify a very handy rhetorical response to such adversaries that might just boil down to the motto for your overall cause. You might just sway such loyal member of your work crew and cause so persuasively that they form their own form of propaganda for your cause (“We are doing this to promulgate our agenda for world domination, right? If not, we could have stayed in college for another two years!”) as Okyrhoe conjunct Jupiter conjunct Neptune trines 1998-VG44 conjunct 2001-SQ73 in April.

Harsh municipal government initiatives thwart and impede local businesses profoundly as Saturn squares the North Node in April.

Biggest deadline of the year with your loyal work crew and the cause occurs during Jupiter conjunct Venus sextile Pluto conjunct Amycus, both stationing from Direct to Retrograde Motion, in late April. Continue to lead, to manage and to direct them softly via fun, fun, fun!

On the other end of the spectrum, communicate with your own long-time technical consultant in the balls-to-the-wall, no-holds-barred, let’s-do-this bravado that both of you dig as you take care of the behind-the-scenes back end as 1998-BU48 trines Pluto conjunct Amycus from April through August. Given that, as you duck behind the scenes, your loyal work crew will champion your cause in your absence, you will become surprised when the loyal members therein develop a legendary myth about you and your exploits as Jupiter conjunct Venus trine Cyllarus in late April.

As Jupiter transits Aries from May to October, you are determined that all the workplace geniuses whom you currently employ and lead will recognize the true O.G. workplace genius of them all, you and you alone, “Original Genius, yo!” However, it’s too early for this revelation – those workplace geniuses, not worldly enough to understand you, may consider you as merely “a legend in your own mind.” Nevertheless, by the time that Jupiter transits Aries in early 2023, all the workplace geniuses will admit, “No doubt, you got it all going on.” But just wait – once Neptune transits Aries from 2025 to 2039, those workplace geniuses will all be true believers.

In fact, as Cyllarus will transit Leo from June 2022 through July 2039 for another seventeen years, much water will have to flow under the bridge before anybody will quote “Ziggy Stardust” from David Bowie’s The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars about you, “He took it all too far – but boy, could he play guitar.”

Don’t get too far ahead of yourself. Live enough in the moment to realize why people complain so horribly about you as Bienor transits Cancer from July 2022 through January 2023, even going so far as to suggest that they may sue you. Anticipate, while addressing the substance of their explicit complaints, and making public statements about how you made improvements that addressed those explicit complaints, such people and their allies echo the original and an amended complaint with the original and an amended threat as Asbolus transits Cancer from mid-September to mid-October. Don’t get caught flatfooted.

But don’t fall in the trap of addressing public relations as a reaction to what other people say. Uranus conjunct the North Node from July to September denotes that it is your responsibility, the Scorpion, to control the dialogue about you and what you do so that you control the words about you that emerge out of the mouths of every member of the public. Moreover, expect adversaries and the media to make accusations against you as a result of your alliances and affiliations as 2002-VR130 squares 2002-CR46 conjunct the South Node opposite Uranus conjunct the North Node during August and September. Assert, “I am responsible for what I say and do – and so is everybody else.”

Take a step back from the workplace during Retrograde Jupiter from August to November. . . and chill.

Obey the law explicitly and conspicuously so that you will not be vulnerable to those who seek to use the written law as their own weapon against you throughout 1998-BU48 in Libra from September 2022 through August 2047.

Municipal political strife about the commercial business districts in and around your city resurfaces during Saturn square Uranus from September to November.

Hire or formalize official business relations with that long-time technical consultant ally to take care of immediate business immediately and over the medium-term duration during Thereus conjunct Aphidas from September 2022 through August 2023.That long-time technical consultant ally has their own radical, aggressive and hilarious ideas about how you can control the public relations agenda over the long-term during 2003-WL7 in Virgo from October through February 2023. Think tank only for the moment. Hear them out.

The demand for a deposition or for a broad swatch of discovery documents (“Everything the defendant has ever written on paper since the defendant learned the alphabet”) during 2001-SQ73 square Elatus during November is a fishing expedition of the worst sort. Ask your lawyer to get rid of this frivolous nuisance.

Conversely, a very thorough direct marketing campaign engineered by you and your work crew during 2001-SQ73 trine Jupiter from November to December is a fishing expedition of the best kind!

The fact that you shared with our loyal work crew why you felt vulnerable about your adversaries back in March and April pays off in spades as adversaries absolutely become enemies as they go radically dirty against you during Retrograde Mars in Gemini from November 2022 to Martin Luther King Day 2023. Indeed, these loyal work crew members know what you said & did and your adversaries-cum-enemies said & did back in the day as Stationary Mars squares Neptune during October and November. This is why the loyal work crew will want to take centerstage during Retrograde Jupiter in very late Pisces during November: To defend and to champion you, “Nobody is going to play me or us against you – because I and we are loyal to you. Word.”

If your name is not in lights as Elatus transits Scorpio from December 2022 through March 2023 . . . buy some lights.

“Yo!” your loyal work crew proclaims during Direct Motion Jupiter in very late Pisces during December. “We got your lights. We got this. We got you!”

Real political scientists with academic credentials and street credibility join forces with the more radical, reckless and extreme factions within your company, party, city, state or province as Chariklo conjuncts 2003-CO1 from December 2022 through March 2027. This has serious potential – but make no public announcement about any of this as 2003-CO1 conjunct 2001-BL41 squares the North Node during December – it will not play well. Listen in. Coordinate with the players so as to acquire introductions. Develop your own vision as those more experienced are forging theirs.

Business is very good, but projects are complicated, labor-intensive and slow. Concentrate upon each individual task necessary to execute business as 2002-GZ32 trines the North Node from December 2022 through January 2023. Keep politics and business far apart for now. Reread that word, “slow” – 2001-SQ73 opposite Pluto conjunct Amycus from December 2022 through February 2023 demands that you take care of all ongoing business according to all city, state, provincial and federal guidelines – or else. One step at a time. Slow and steady wins the race. And keep politics and business far apart for now.

Time to assert your O.G. workplace genius status – and to make the next generation respect and proclaim it – as Jupiter transits Aries from late December 2022 through April 2023. Ziggy played guitar!

 

SAGITTARIUS
2022

 

Sagittarius the Archer, as an archetype, views itself as fiscally conservative and socially, not liberal, but radical. The rule about the classic American western film, wherein, once the camera films the gun on the wall, states, that, by the end of that film, somebody will take that gun off the wall – and shoot it! Why bring that up now? Because this is how Sagittarius the Archer feels about freedom! And, indeed, just as a gun kills, freedom can kill – that is, if one has the courage to do it right.

However, back in December 2019, as Jupiter entered Capricorn, you felt constraint. You were comfortable with your money – too comfortable. Worse yet, you did not like the risks associated with the options that allowed you to exercise your freedom. Truth be told, you would rather risk your life than risk arrest – but the options presented allowed for the latter but not the former.

Were you getting too soft? Possibly – particularly if you earn a living in order to support a spouse and your family. Especially if you were putting in a crazy amount of hours paying for a child’s advanced education or an elderly parent living in your home or assisted living facility. More likely, however, even if you are married, if your son or daughter is in college, if your mom or dad is in their nineties, is that all the constraints of work come with punitive and hostile legal strings attached. A clear example: Any rumors that you are gaming your employer’s expense account are like kryptonite to Superman. In order to protect your income, finance and net worth as you handle personal and financial responsibilities, Pluto conjunct Amycus in Capricorn from December 2020 to February 2023 demands that you protect yourself and your reputation not only from such accusations but in fact anything which threatens them.

Truth be told, you did not need and never did need want your employer’s expense account. Indeed, the wholesale manipulation inherent in this “perk” makes you feel extremely angry towards them. Yes, you are, and have been aware: The more that you rely upon your own resources professionally, the less that your employer can conduct surveillance upon you throughout Pholus conjunct 2002-GZ32 from December 2020 through November 2022. Know when to use the resources of your employer or your client, and when to rely upon your own – and why.

The entire tenor of this discussion aggravates you to no end! You find all of this to smack of paternalism in the extreme. Yet, given the constraints that you thought that you felt as Jupiter entered Capricorn in December 2019, you really had absolutely zero concept of what paternalism in the extreme really connoted until every country in the world shut down the professional workplace, all of the world’s airports and every store on Earth as a result of COVID‑19.

Significantly, what aggravated you the most about the constraints that the COVID-19 quarantine demanded was not that they were dystopian, but that they were totally lame. Not even the specter of General Secretary of the Chinese Communist Party and President of the People's Republic of China Xi Jinping seemed remotely terrifying. The only world figure who actually scared you was U.S. President Donald J. Trump – and not because he was particularly straightforwardly authoritarian, but because he was contradictory, anarchistic and vague. Truly, U.S. President Donald J. Trump scared you for all the wrong reasons.

Or so you thought. No matter where you or anybody else stood politically about George Floyd, it all ended badly. You couldn’t help but feel that all the things that happened surrounding the Black Lives Matters protests, from the riots after sundown to the vandalized Confederate statues to the privileged whites and lawyers committing vandalism, to the post-sundown looting, a ton of bad behavior muddied a very basic message. Legal arguments that mobs who infiltrated the U.S. Capitol on January 6 should be exonerated because nobody arrested the rioters looting after Black Lives Matters protests during the summer? The rampant fallacious logic just made you want to tear up your undergraduate diploma.

Only when you considered that U.S. citizens behaved so badly because they were viewing all that went wrong in their country for the past 220 years did you stop actually complaining. The fact that all these people were now preparing for the Pluto Returns of the United States of America throughout 2022 struck you as a reasonable explanation for why so many people acted so badly for what they considered to be good reasons. This was a worldview you would not question. You could put this issue to rest.

And you need to put this issue to rest. Other issues really eat at you.

For one thing, logistically you need to reduce pressure on spouses of family members regarding an elderly family member during Asbolus conjunct Bienor square Neptune from December 2021 through June 2022 became imperative before somebody cracked mentally.

You must address the household budget. You must take care of the front end first: Reduce expenses to accrue an actual ongoing credit rebate during Chariklo in Aquarius from November 2021 through January 2028, Scorched earth economic warfare becomes necessary for you to distinguish yourself not only from hoards of the nameless and the faceless as 2001-BL41 transits Aquarius from December 2021 through January 2024 but also from the ruthlessly unscrupulous cheaters and one-trick ponies as 2001-KF77 transits Aquarius from December 2021 through December 2028. Finally, you must pay out considerably less money during Cyllarus opposite Chariklo conjunct 2001-KF77 conjunct 2001-BL41 during and after Christmas.

Unfortunately, you will view yourself differently than others will view you as Chariklo conjunct 2001-KF77 from December 2021 through April 2027. Be careful which allies you will attract and which enemies you will repel as you unwittingly communicate mixed economic messages.

Most importantly: You must free up enough mental space to detach yourself from everything under your employer, at your job and amongst your technology that connects you to the surveillance state. Again: Truth be told, you would rather risk your life than risk arrest – but the options presented allow for the latter but not the former.

You have responsibilities beyond your own heartbeat. You really cannot die just yet. But to equate freedom with breaking the law: You must obey the law. Both allies and enemies will be watching during 1998-BU48 in Libra from November 2021 through March 2022. They will watch you like a hawk.

Keeping all this in mind, Retrograde Venus in Capricorn during December 2021 and January 2022 intends to put you right back to all that you were thinking as Jupiter entered Capricorn in December 2019. You need to take a look at all the tools and accoutrements and perks and conveniences in your life that contributed to your subjugation to “the surveillance state.”

Furthermore, you must realize, as you subjugate yourself within “the surveillance state,” in order that you may provide for your spouse and children, that your spouse and children have also subjugated themselves to “the surveillance state,” . . . whether they know or accept it or not.

Forget about the perverse and perfidious manipulation of the dystopian state. Take control of these things in your life which you can so that it may serve you, your family and society at large.

Professionally, you get more chances to see the elite in your field – of which you have become one. Execute all due and relevant homework throughout Saturn in Aquarius from December 2020 through February 2023. Hone your craft.

Your ability to outright eliminate expenses puts you in a position to negotiate and to land a big money deal as Jupiter squares the North Node in late December. Realize before you accept that big money deal that expenses will be high throughout Ceres conjunct the North Node during January. Therefore, you must run the business that you land from that big money deal even more economically than the ways in which you actually landed it during Pluto trine the North Node from January to March. The North Node in Taurus from January 2022 to June 2023 asserts: The only part of the equation of the profit margin that you totally control – market price minus expenses – are the expenses.

Ultimately, all of that is of limited significance. Of primary significance: Make your bosses as happy as possible as quickly as possible so that you can concentrate on reversing the course of illness of an elderly family member and so that you can turn your house into a much happier home beginning Jupiter in Pisces from January through April.

Invariably, however, you live in the world. One thing you learned about the world during George Floyd is that anybody with a cell phone can be a journalist or an unlicensed, uneducated and wannabe private detective, attorney or cop. Surveillance video at work is one thing, some colleague’s or stranger’s cell phone is another, during the North Node square 2003-WL7 opposite Crantor during February and March. You have been warned.

Whether or not you or your family have taken in an elderly relative to your home, then 2002-GZ32 sextile Jupiter sextile Uranus conjunct Albion during February states that you will need to put money into construction within your home so that you can maintain a home office and to take care of an elderly relative so that your family members, your elderly relative and you can all have all the privacy you need to go about your life, to convalesce in privacy or to keep in touch with bosses, colleagues and employees at work. The true value of the home construction you build for your elderly relative becomes readily apparent during Aphidas opposite Jupiter conjunct Nessus from February to March.

 (Provocatively, Venus conjunct Mars in Capricorn in February further suggests that you augment this expansion for a secret room within your house which will serve as a private love nest for you and your spouse. Oo-la-la!)

Indeed, overall, property expansion and new construction as Cyllarus in Cancer opposes Pluto conjunct Amycus in Capricorn from February to May is an absolutely valid and legal way for you to invest capital that increases your personal comfort, societal status, social role and property valuation. Moreover, a taste for property, as opposed to a taste for vice, serves as a very strong incentive to work hard and to expand your weekly income during 1999-OX3 in Taurus from March 2022 through March 2027. And, in the short term, the overtime and weekend work that bosses demand as 1998-BU48 trines Pluto conjunct Amycus from April through August make that money available to you.

Creatively, however, a different dynamic predominates. Whether you are a filmmaker, painter or writer, Chiron conjunct 2000-QB243 from February 2022 through May 2024 rewards the systematic application, development and ultimate maximization of structured ambiguity. William Empson’s Seven Types of Ambiguity!

Comedians: Develop a monologue or routine about Valentine’s Day couples and test it out during Venus conjunct Mars in Aquarius in March. Avoid those Valentine Day jokes which foray into political issues, including Valentine Day jokes about lesbian, gay or transgender communities, as Saturn in Aquarius trine Asbolus conjunct Bienor conjunct 1996-TL66 from March to June.

On that note, parents: Teenagers and children in your family who have never themselves ventured into a city by themselves flaunt a sophisticated worldview about these lesbian, gay or transgender communities, amongst other highly sectarian modern-day social and political cohorts, as Okyrhoe conjunct Jupiter conjunct Neptune square Asbolus conjunct Bienor conjunct 1996-TL66 in April. Do they spend too much time watching TV? Too much time surfing Facebook? It does not matter – as always, the youth tries to be more sophisticated to impress adults, but what such youth asserts about lesbian, gay or transgender communities makes you realize how much protection they require in the currently rapidly disintegrating modern-day social fabric as Okyrhoe conjuncts Neptune from March 2022 to March 2023.

The anecdote that you tell to communicate your befuddlement, “When I asked the Portland West cop if he was arresting the transgendered prostitute for possession of heroin, the Portland West cop replied, ‘Possession of heroin is legal in Portland West – I was really arresting the pimp who disguised himself as a transgendered prostitute because he was on the FBI’s Most Wanted List for human sex trafficking,’” absolutely horrified your daughter (and your elderly mother) when you told it as Hylonome sextiles Okyrhoe conjunct Jupiter conjunct Neptune in April. However, your daughter will remember this joke for the next two decades as she looks at every transgendered individual after you said that to judge them according to that startling anecdote as Okyrhoe conjunct Jupiter conjunct Neptune trines 1998-VG44 conjunct 2001-SQ73 in April.

Hopefully, you will not have piqued her interest in an underworld where your daughter will meet their own dark hero or heroine – or darker anti-hero or anti-heroine – as Jupiter conjunct Venus trines Cyllarus in late April. For, in the end, you know that, during and long after Okyrhoe conjunct Jupiter conjunct Neptune sextile the North Node in April, your daughter will need to discover the truth, in her own way, for herself, by herself.

Moonlighting as a comedian while maintaining a day job? Tell no jokes from your nighttime routine in the workplace as Saturn squares the North Node in April.

Your family settles comfortably into newly constructed rooms designed and built for them as Jupiter conjunct Venus sextiles Pluto conjunct Amycus, both stationing from Direct to Retrograde Motion, in late April. Everybody has the physical and mental space that they need to be both alone, separately, but together, contiguously, under one roof. But more on the need for “overlap” later in 2022.

Writers, filmmakers: You want to start a massive new project during Jupiter in Aries from May to October. Realize that it may be more expensive that you can afford. Don’t expect to finish this quickly. Work on all foundational parts of that massive new project which require human effort, but little cash. Know how much money you have to spend before starting that massive new project in earnest during Jupiter in Aries in early 2023. Plan to sell that massive new project, or get the backing or the money to film it, during Neptune in Aries from 2025 to 2039. Do not allow your genius to bankrupt you financially.

But you want to finish it quickly! The limitless expanse of the frontier of the intellectual marketplace beckons as Cyllarus transits Leo from June 2022 through July 2039. However, in the realm of the intellectual marketplace, speed is not a virtue in and of itself. The true virtue? Manifesting absolute essence.

Environments which housed the vices you indulged over the past ten or fifteen years turn hostile and ugly during Bienor in Cancer from July 2022 through January 2023. These environments will turn outright violent and dangerous – with violent danger pointed directly towards you! – during Asbolus in Cancer from mid-September to mid-October. Asmodeus the demon is kicking you out of Hell! Have the good sense to leave as invited.

So, what are you going to do if you aren’t indulging vice? The truth is, as a professional, Uranus conjunct the North Node from July to September affords you a profound opportunity to upgrade your market value by implementing a broad swath of innovation across the workplace uniformly and swiftly.

Moreover, you are absolutely perfectly poised to climb social classes as you associate and network with an extremely accomplished class of professionals, especially lawyers, during 1998-BU48 in Libra from September 2022 through August 2047. Unfortunately, as you climb social classes with your ensemble of professional championship players, 2002-VR130 square 2002-CR46 conjunct the South Node opposite Uranus conjunct the North Node during August and September makes the concomitant vice-ridden entourage a distinct legal and public relations liability.

Still looking for a way to indulge peak experiences involving risk with such staunch champions of the written law? Gamble big money by investing in fine art. Fly, jump out of or do death-defying stunts from small aircraft. (“Surf and/or Die” by Walter Becker off Eleven Tracks of Whack, “There was never any question – It was always all or nothing.”) In the end, however, you have to find something to give you psychological thrills outside of the professional workplace.

While it is hard to say whether bosses are hard on you because they feel that you are underperforming or because they envy and fear your skills, the fact is that Thereus conjunct Aphidas from September 2022 through August 2023 gives bosses the knowledge and the opportunity to manipulate you psychologically at will. Even worse, you will be under much more pressure from psychologically punitive, demanding and emotionally bi-polar bosses as 2003-WL7 transits Virgo from October through February 2023.

Stop writing this novel or recording this film during Retrograde Jupiter from August to November until Jupiter reenters Aries later in 2022. Review what you have done so far. Ponder potential directions.

Moonlighting as a comedian while maintaining a day job? Tell no jokes from your nighttime routine in the workplace as Saturn square Uranus from September to November. (Didn’t we go through this before?)

At home, however, problems beyond your experience and ken plague you. A spouse becomes spasmodically neurotic and emotional, harboring a disturbing secret during Retrograde Mars in Gemini from November 2022 to Martin Luther King Day 2023. R-rated and X-rated discussions at the dinner table with all the generations present during March and April come back to haunt you with guilt as Stationary Mars squares Neptune during October and November. You realize during Retrograde Jupiter in very late Pisces during November that you are not the only family member who finds the dinner table in the dining room excessively cloistering.

Most treacherously, a professional associate or social acquaintance knows your preferred vice – and tempts you with an exquisite sample of it as 2001-SQ73 squares Elatus during November. Just say no, just like Nancy Reagan, then head back home to your family so that you can take care of your elderly family member before your eternal soul succumbs to your pet addiction and law enforcement narcs as 2001-SQ73 trines Jupiter from November to December.

If you can afford one, hire a private detective to find out if the secret your spouse harbors involves just your spouse, or your spouse on the lookout for the extracurricular activities of your son or daughter, as Elatus transits Scorpio from December 2022 through March 2023.

The inherent drama of certain relationships may benevolently close all the necessary doors of Asmodeus chases your spouse, with or without your children, out of Hell, just as Direct Motion Jupiter in very late Pisces during December commences. As long as everything works out in the end, leave others to the privacy of their secret paths.

Whether funnier or better comedians with more advanced routines, accomplished, well-published political theorists, visionary scientists with decades of laboratory experience, genius filmmakers or renowned novelists, some brilliant people show up in your hometown or neighborhood as Chariklo conjuncts 2003-CO1 from December 2022 through March 2027. Make their acquaintance.

However, as for these funnier and better comedians with their more advanced routines: Don’t tell any of their jokes in the workplace as 2003-CO1 conjunct 2001-BL41 squares the North Node during December!

While contracting and consulting work yields unusual and convoluted payment methods as 2002-GZ32 trines the North Node from December 2022 through January 2023, you can make the inconvenience work for you. Hire a reputable accountant knowledgeable about all the methods wherein you can declare expenses and deferred income against your tax bill during 2001-SQ73 opposite Pluto conjunct Amycus from December 2022 through February 2023.

Proceed with your creative master project started earlier in 2022 starting Jupiter in Aries from late December 2022 through April 2023. 


CAPRIC1ORN
2022

 

The Goat born in 1970 or earlier has had the experience of living through the transits of Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Chiron, Chariklo, Nessus, 1999-OX3, Crantor, Asbolus, Bienor and Neptune, to name a few, through their sign of Capricorn the Goat. While a rock and roll fan might joke that Capricorn has gone through more changes than David Bowie, David Bowie himself was a Capricorn. In “Hugh Selwyn Mauberly,” the master poet Ezra Pound employs the phrase, “The age demanded.” Capricorn, one of the more worldly signs of the zodiac, an individual attuned to more to the impersonal public rather than the private social circle, hears what the age demands.

One way or another, you knew that Jupiter had entered Capricorn in December 2019, because, for whatever stimulated the thought, you wondered, “what the age demanded” – and what the age demanded of you. You’ve worn a host of different costumes to all sorts of masquerades. You’ve honed your soul’s intent, worn your heart on your sleeve and declared your undying love for mankind, the universe and God. What next?

People asked whether you liked or didn’t like or how you felt or what you thought about Trump, but none of these questions sat right with you. Pluto had been passing through Capricorn now for over a decade and you were much more inclined to look underneath the surface of yourself and everyone else more than ever. Worse yet, casual banter about Trump and the state of the U.S.A. offended you more. This warranted more than casual conversation. There were problems in the country.

In many ways, you know that you need to, but, ultimately, you could not, veil how you feel when you speak, or even as you stand silently in public appearances, as Pluto conjuncts Amycus in Capricorn from December 2020 to February 2023.

COVID-19 and the subsequent quarantine confirmed your suspicions. Something big was very wrong. Immediate action was warranted and justified.

Did you believe in COVID-19? As a virus? Maybe – but not necessarily, “Do I look like a chemist?” (Dr. Anthony Fauci, a Capricorn and a chemist, does.) As a signifier? Absolutely. So, what did COVID-19 signify? A plague? Global warming? Right-wing nationalist government coups?

“I don’t know,” you insisted. After all, Pluto was transiting Capricorn. Later on, after George Floyd, the protests, the riots, the 2020 Presidential Election and the claims of election fraud, amongst other things, many commentators, political, social and astrological, stated how the citizens of the entire country stood up in chaotic arms because they looked back at the injustices and excesses of our entire country over the past 220 years as it prepared for the Pluto Returns of the United States of America.

“That’s all well and good,” you said. “But they affect me, too.”

Really, for once, you were more than content to let everybody express themselves as much as they wanted on life’s Shakespearian stage. You just wanted to stay out of the spotlight so that you don’t look like a fool dancing around yourself like a reckless Sufi tornado. And don’t try looking at yourself in the mirror to try to figure it out! Pholus conjunct 2002-GZ32 from December 2020 through November 2022 declares that you need several mirrors looking at the mirror which is looking at you to determine why you look the way you do – all in one piece in one place. Indeed, the multifarious reincarnational psychedelics of the entire experience intimidated you. You craved warm milk and a blanket.

Ultimately, this connoted wisdom. You know when it is important to show what you know and when to remain silent throughout Saturn in Aquarius from December 2020 through February 2023.

But, now, all the histrionics have played themselves out. People have formulated their soundbyte about what they did or did not do during “these historic times.” But, as you look resolutely forward like a stone-cold agnostic, take a look back to Jupiter’s entrance into Capricorn in December 2019 during Retrograde Venus in Capricorn during December 2021 and January 2022 to ask yourself, “Where was I right? Where was I wrong?”

You’d been through a lot of this before. Whether in Chicago at the Democratic National Convention in 1968 where they let out all the pigs, or in the early Eighties, attending concert after concert after concert, then working sixty, seventy and eighty hour weeks, or when the World Trade Center fell on September 11, 2001 while everybody in the country wondered what President George W. Bush would do after he finished reading The Pet Goat in the second grade classroom in Sarasota, or during Occupy Wall Street and thereafter under President Barack Obama, where you could not discern whether you were commuting, protesting or waiting for a cab, there came a point when you needed to focus your perception. It would be then that you turned to Capricorn’s true north: Economics. Definition: Money you can control amongst circumstances that you cannot.

Hold onto discretionary funds for as long as possible during Chariklo in Aquarius from November 2021 through January 2028. Frauds and cheaters will take all of them quickly during 2001-KF77 in Aquarius from December 2021 through December 2028 – but so many people will need them, and so much else, so much more throughout 2001-BL41 in Aquarius from December 2021 through January 2024.

Making matters that much more complicated, even you have difficulty, under such unusual historical conditions, distinguishing shysters from genuinely needy people as Chariklo conjuncts 2001-KF77 from December 2021 through April 2027. Most importantly, don’t convince yourself that you can carry more debt than you are able during Cyllarus opposite Chariklo conjunct 2001-KF77 conjunct 2001-BL41 during and after Christmas.

Prosecutors are itching to go to court as 1998-BU48 transits Libra from November 2021 through March 2022.

As a businessowner: Don’t fall into glass half-empty pessimism as you try to maximize the number of sales in a location where you are unable to maximize the number of customers. Indeed, you witnessed all the rampant and organized retail theft in San Francisco, Los Angeles and Chicago around Thanksgiving 2021: You must put yourself in a position to pay for the thieves who are trying to destroy your business as Asbolus conjunct Bienor squares Neptune from December 2021 through June 2022.

All of that is “economics” – none of it is “business.” Regarding “business,” knowing what item in your budget represents your negotiating partner’s or adversary’s real number is mission-critical during Jupiter square the North Node in late December. That number allows you the latitude to be generous while maintaining your poker face. Even so, the North Node in Taurus from January 2022 to June 2023 reminds you that the buck does stop somewhere – and that somewhere is with you.

Then again, economic and worldly conditions change and are ever-changing. Regarding the upcoming cycle, negotiations will be neither so explicit nor so mean-spirited as Jupiter transits Pisces from January through April. Indeed, people will be hurting financially during Ceres conjunct the North Node during January – and many people will insist that they suffer through no fault of their own. Even so. Pluto trine the North Node from January to March reminds you that your budgetary decisions create wealth and poverty not only for you in the long run, but for everybody else, right now. Give those rose-colored glasses to one of your more idealistic lovers.

Your first major budgetary decision will be to make a considerable enough spike payment to main creditors as the North Node squares 2003-WL7 opposite Crantor during February and March to keep your interest rate on your debt stable – or, if possible, to decrease it.

Now, whether you are an investment banker or CEO engineering the breakup or spinoff of a conglomerate, a master artist or filmmaker creating an event or film in multiple locations at once, or the supervisor of a school district with a number of different schools, 2002-GZ32 sextile Jupiter sextile Uranus conjunct Albion during February declares that you cannot even interact and interface with each one of the many very high-level supervisors who report to you. The bottom line: You cannot tell what is happening on the ground in any one of these places. Is this necessary? Sometimes, yes. You must find a way to know how to identify those places for yourself – and then you must go.

A spouse is an invaluable ally in this project – but Venus conjunct Mars in Capricorn in February states that your spouse is more than an invaluable ally: Your spouse is your lover. Venus conjunct Mars in your sign occurs on Valentine’s Day – keep your priorities straight!

As you enjoy Valentine’s Day with Venus conjunct Mars in your sign, consider the love song that Mary Magdalene about Jesus Christ, “I Don’t Know How to Love Him,” from Jesus Christ Superstar as Cyllarus in Cancer opposes Pluto conjunct Amycus in Capricorn from February to May. Jesus Christ stares at nothing in the distance as he considers the future fate of mankind, while Mary Magdalene thinks about nothing . . . except Jesus.

So, anyway, Jesus . . . um, Capricorn: Considering the future fate of your family, city, state, province or country, and those who populate it, whether family, citizens or the unborn? As much as it disturbs you that the earnestness, the anger, the rage and the idealism of the youth seems so indistinct and, finally, so vague, during Chiron conjunct 2000-QB243 from February 2022 through May 2024, the vagueness that you experience now . . . is accurate.

The public support that your spouse lent to your professional, creative or political cause has helped you to make the both of you one significant figure in their mind. Therefore, engineer a peak joint appearance before the end of Venus conjunct Mars in Aquarius in March . . . then both of you disappear.

Artists, political activists, bankers: 1999-OX3 in Taurus from March 2022 through March 2027 denotes a massive personal and professional agenda. You certainly do not want to peak now! Get away from the publicity factories of television networks and cable TV news networks. Resolve to make a series of lectures or public appearances, or to plan them for late in 2022, during Aphidas opposite Jupiter conjunct Nessus from February to March. Make an informal crawl amongst local merchants in various commercial districts whose support you will need in the long term as Saturn in Aquarius trines Asbolus conjunct Bienor conjunct 1996-TL66 from March to June.

But you must also make a strong effort to connect with individuals in the public, unaffiliated with any business, as Hylonome sextiles Okyrhoe conjunct Jupiter conjunct Neptune in April. Indeed, many of these individual citizens have real complaints about and resentment towards those merchants – and you need to hear what those resentments are as Okyrhoe conjunct Jupiter conjunct Neptune square Asbolus conjunct Bienor conjunct 1996-TL66 in April.

Moreover, you must realize that, for the really young adults, the eighteen-year old college freshman who realizes that this represents the real business, politics or power plays of the world as Okyrhoe conjunct Neptune from March 2022 to March 2023, the public relations that you perform right now represents a coming of age. If these really young adults, with their older, more experienced posse, respond to your art, politics or public relations, then Okyrhoe conjunct Jupiter conjunct Neptune sextile the North Node in April denotes that the symbol of what you create expands far beyond what the actual art, politics or public relations represents.

If these really young adults, with their older, more experienced posse, respond to your art, politics or public relations, then Okyrhoe conjunct Jupiter conjunct Neptune trine 1998-VG44 conjunct 2001-SQ73 in April denotes that the idealism of the cause which you espouse will be defined within the eyes and the mouths of those beholding it, and not by anything you do, say or represent. In those terms, because both those symbols and those ideals will represent different things to those exact same people over time, it is essential that you write what you mean, what you intend to communicate and what you strive to achieve with these projects over time and in heightened context as 1998-BU48 trines Pluto conjunct Amycus from April through August.

The explosion of a very negative truth makes the very air toxic as Saturn squares the North Node in April.

This negativity temporarily thwarts the momentum of your political or artistic project – then, it kicks back in with a vengeance! Adamant hope guarantees that your project peaks in popularity, spectacularly so, as Jupiter conjunct Venus sextiles Pluto conjunct Amycus, both stationing from Direct to Retrograde Motion, in late April. The positive concomitant message that emanates from it during Jupiter conjunct Venus trine Cyllarus in late April constitutes propaganda for the cause, but propaganda emanating from the enthusiasm of the idealistic heart in defiance of a perceived evil.

The post-partem emphasis of an intense climactic public moment segues into the blank slate of secluded rest during Jupiter in Aries from May to October. Plan home renovation, or move, during Jupiter in Aries in early 2023. Forge a ten-year plan for your family and property holdings – and, if you are mayor, governor or premier, for of your city, state or province – for Neptune in Aries from 2025 to 2039. However, that is all for later in 2022. For the moment, entertain no ambition except recuperation.

Recent successes may have piqued your appetite for ever-larger professional and creative ambitions of potentially massive scales. However, in order to launch any such ambitions, let alone successfully execute them, you must greatly expand your property holdings, including your own production equipment, recording studios, TV stations and the like, as well as outright real estate, as Cyllarus transits Leo from June 2022 through July 2039 . . . and you absolutely must purge yourself of, and remain free of, debt.

Disregarding the complaints – or, worse yet, a cry for help – of a spouse, mate, partner or the public during Bienor in Cancer from July 2022 through January 2023 is a recipe for outright catastrophe as Asbolus transits Cancer from mid-September to mid-October. Don’t take the well-being of those close to you for granted.

Artists, writers: All the financiers and bankers are focused on cryptocurrency and Bitcoin – they don’t need an astrology forecast about Uranus in Taurus to go down that rabbit hole. However, did you know that Uranus conjunct the North Node from July to September puts Capricorn artists in a position to make the most widespread formal innovations in painting since Picasso and Braque, and Capricorn writers in a position to make the most widespread formal innovations in novel-writing since James Joyce? Indeed, right now you should be the era of the Great American Novel – if it weren’t for the Internet. Two of the greatest American novels, Nathaniel Hawthorne’s The Scarlett Letter and Herman Melville’s Moby Dick were both published with Neptune in Pisces as Uranus began its transit of Taurus in and soon after 1850. Now is the time to display your genius as fully as possible.

However, don’t try to escape from your worldly circumstances by immersing yourself in creative work as 2002-VR130 squares 2002-CR46 conjunct the South Node opposite Uranus conjunct the North Node during August and September. Pay your debts. Shun drug-addled cronies.

In this context, if a literary or art critic takes a special interest in your writing or artwork, whether you interpret what they say as positive or negative, throughout 1998-BU48 in Libra from September 2022 through August 2047, regard them as a full creative partner.

Venture out of seclusion during Retrograde Jupiter from August to November. Do not bemoan critical backlash that you hear for your large-scale venture that you spearheaded in March and April during Saturn square Uranus from September to November. Audiences are still intellectually, emotionally and spiritually processing the big picture.

Publishers, TV producers, record labels and galleries observe the release of your upcoming creative product as they decide whether or not to make you some exciting and at times extravagant offers as Thereus conjuncts Aphidas from September 2022 through August 2023.

Do not default on bills or invoices – judgments against you may escalate during 2003-WL7 in Virgo from October through February 2023. More positively during this transit, release product for sale about your large-scale venture that you spearheaded in March and April.

Merchants: Normally, with an aspect like Retrograde Mars in Gemini from November 2022 to Martin Luther King Day 2023, issues involving theft rise to the surface – but with an aspect like Stationary Mars square Neptune during October and November, large-scale retail theft descends like a plague. And, as always, when volume is involved – lots of thieves, lots of product stolen, lots of videotaped surveillance, lots of cellphone videos – Retrograde Jupiter in very late Pisces during November confirms that volume complicates.

No matter – 2001-SQ73 opposite Pluto conjunct Amycus from December 2022 through February 2023 exhorts you to protect your self-interest through detective work involving both police and private investigators. Matching up videotape with cellphone video with license plate numbers with prior convictions is hard work during Elatus in Scorpio from December 2022 through March 2023.

Patterns emerge during Direct Motion Jupiter in very late Pisces during December. Hard work investigating surveillance footage as 2001-SQ73 squares Elatus during November will fulfill the purpose of arresting and punishing “the bad guys.” For best results, solicit eye witnesses who can pick people out of a lineup who match suspects in the surveillance footage to corroborate your research during 2001-SQ73 trine Jupiter from November to December.

A lot of different political science experts promulgate positive and intelligent political strategies and messages during Chariklo conjunct 2003-CO1 from December 2022 through March 2027. Find those whose messages can do the most good to your city, state, province and country, then invite them to speak at a local university – or pressure that local university to get them a position to teach there for the short term.

If necessary, use your influence as an artist to bring attention to those political thinkers, even though they might not have anything to do with your art, as 2003-CO1 conjunct 2001-BL41 squares the North Node during December. Use the occasion to talk about your upcoming art projects or novels during such political events and lectures to add some sugar to the bitter coffee, as well as to prepare your fan base with some of the more advanced and obtuse artistic ideas which you have ever espoused, during 2002-GZ32 trine the North Node from December 2022 through January 2023. Stretch the minds and perceptions of your audience as far as you can in as many directions as possible all at once.

Regenerate at home after all the tumultuous activity at the end of 2022 during Jupiter in Aries from late December 2022 through April 2023 until you feel comfortable and reassured that all is deeply well with all the members of your home amidst all the changes in your neighborhood, city, state or province and country.

 

AQUARIUS
2022

 

When Jupiter entered Capricorn in December 2019, it bothered you that you had little time to ponder and to analyze the political landscape because you had to address too many professional duties at your job. You didn’t see the crisis forming – but as you saw the U.S.A. under President Donald J. Trump just before the election year of 2020, you knew that the U.S.A. was democracy teetering on the brink of collapse. As far as you were concerned, nothing could possibly be worse – nothing.

Then, COVID-19 hit. You pondered this briefly – a plague is certainly worse than a potential totalitarian dictatorship, you surmised. But is this a plague? The U.S. Government, like governments the world over, closed down all of society, commanded everybody into quarantine, reassigning all possible work to computers in individuals’ homes. Still, you had never seen a plague – nobody alive on Earth had ever seen a plague. Was this a plague?

The phenomenon of George Floyd answers all of your questions about the plague and addressed all of your various concerns about the state of the country. Why so many people were just hanging out as three cops tried to arrest, and Minneapolis Police Officer Derek Chauvin and three cops succeeded in arresting, George Floyd, on a beautiful late spring day during a quarantine, and how so many tens and hundreds of thousands of people protesting that arrest and subsequent death of George Floyd for several months afterward, then how so many hundreds and thousands of people started looting after the George Floyd protests ended at sundown, cast enough doubt on Floyd, Floyd’s arrest, the plague, the quarantine, President Donald J. Trump and the U.S.A. to make you realize that America and Americans were in the throes of a psychotic episode about all the evil it had ever done for the past two hundred and sixty decades, or 220 years, and as it tried to find its soul through absolute madness previous to the Pluto Returns of the United States of America throughout 2022.

As far as you were concerned, none of this was going in the right direction. You were therefore going to obey the rules and the law, whether written and enforced by geniuses or idiots. And, when the January 6 Insurrection happened, you were please with that decision you made.

Luckily for you and your idealism, the evolution and devolution of circumstances became too complicated for your open-hearted but casual input. Truly, power brokers far beyond the corner office, far beyond the mayor’s office, beyond our state capitol, right up to the deli delivery boy who delivers lunch to Mitch McConnell in Washington, D.C., are trying to find the right way to protect you, your boss in the corner office, your shareholders, the mayor, the delivery boy and Mitch McConnell from disease, liability and unemployment so earnestly amidst rapidly changing circumstances in the professional workplace during and throughout Pluto conjunct Amycus in Capricorn from December 2020 to February 2023 that the effort is anything but open-hearted and casual. Under such circumstances, now was the time for the elites – not for a democracy of the mediocre.

However, now, as you look back to the time of Jupiter’s entrance into Capricorn in December 2019 as Retrograde Venus in Capricorn during December 2021 and January 2022, you are forced to ask yourself, “How deeply did you already know this deep-seated problem with the U.S. Government? How deeply did you already realize this need for true elites amidst the government of the popularity contest?”

And then you have to take it down a notch. You must, in the midst of this carnival, remember and consider the leadership both in your professional workplace and your city, state or province. You must realize, accept, then overlook the irony wherein neither mathematics nor arithmetic intimidates many people intellectually – including those who declare bankruptcy. After all, it tells you all you need to know. In the end, fulfilling the irony, rapidly changing circumstances in the professional workplace caused complexities and changes in the budget which nobody foresaw during Pholus conjunct 2002-GZ32 from December 2020 through November 2022.

 Ironically moreover, you notice how certain of the more noble of such capitalists actually have better ideas than your political allies, who fight each other tooth and nail for attention. Seal their selfish fate as you support the generosity and vision of your capitalist, free market political opponent during Cyllarus opposite Chariklo conjunct 2001-KF77 conjunct 2001-BL41 during and after Christmas.

But don’t let the example of one such noble, generous and visionary capitalist to induce you to wear rose-colored glasses. Vicious and greedy capitalists will allow you to think whatever you like as long as you do not create, and actually implement, problems for them. Amongst such capitalists, and in such an environment, Chariklo in Aquarius from November 2021 through January 2028 can provide you with any number of simpatico partners. Moreover, you might actually engage in more, and more lucrative, relationships with, vicious and greedy capitalists if you cheat for them during 2001-KF77 in Aquarius from December 2021 through December 2028.

Don’t be so arrogant as to believe that somebody shady whom you meet during Chariklo conjunct 2001-KF77 from December 2021 through April 2027 is not smart enough to con you into breaking the law for them. But you will get caught, they will dump you and there will be any number of individuals willing to take your self-destructive place during 2001-BL41 in Aquarius from December 2021 through January 2024.

The bottom line: Do nothing extreme, radical or drastic to endanger your very positive legal footing legally as 1998-BU48 transits Libra from November 2021 through March 2022.

Just don’t expect everybody – or even anybody – to understand you or what you assert at all. Realize that any action that you take on behalf of the ideal as Saturn transits Aquarius from December 2020 through February 2023 can still confuse everybody else – and confound you. Like a politician going into hostile territory, you need a public relations expert, or just a savvy friend, to explain to you who other people see when you walk into the room and what other people hear when you speak.

Perversely, few listen to the actual substance of your ideas, but respect the integrity of your personage enough so that, even though they forever complain that they do not get their fair share, they ultimately heed your call to compromise with adversaries during Asbolus conjunct Bienor square Neptune from December 2021 through June 2022 – a decision which ultimately benefits you in more ways than one.

As for your own financial fortunes, pay your mortgage, rent and bills, and force yourself to be satisfied with that, as Jupiter squares the North Node in late December. Indeed, be grateful that your bills are up to date as money is very tight everywhere as Ceres conjuncts the North Node during January. Openly acknowledge that the fiscal security that the North Node in Taurus from January 2022 to June 2023 provides blesses you – don’t you realize that there are millions of people across the globe willing to die or to kill to secure what you take for granted?

“Of course, I realize that!” you respond throughout Jupiter in Pisces from January through April. “That is what happens when people refuse to be content with all the good things that they have.” Be careful – Pluto trine the North Node from January to March may teach you all about this whether you are willing to listen or not.

 Now, you may have money in the bank and your credit rating may be good, but you shouldn’t take your affluence, physical security and personal safety for granted. For one thing, especially if you are a video or photo journalist, but even if you are merely adept at using your cellphone to record or to photograph criminals or a crime scene, you must realize that you put yourself in real danger if a violent, thuggish street criminal sees you videotaping or photographing them in the midst of a felony as the North Node squares 2003-WL7 opposite Crantor during February and March. Stay off the streets. Stay at home.

What are you going to do at home? Work remotely from your office as you invest money for upgrading your home or home office during 2002-GZ32 sextile Jupiter sextile Uranus conjunct Albion during February. Exert more explicit control over all of your environments.

A meaningful platonic alliance with a member of the opposite gender crosses over the border to the realm of romance as Venus conjuncts Mars in Capricorn in February. This romance, your job and their job are all mutually unsustainable – but maybe this is what one or both of you want.

“I gotta admit, I’m a little bit confused,” you hear “Dogs” from Pink Floyd’s Animals in the echoes of your memory as Cyllarus in Cancer opposes Pluto conjunct Amycus in Capricorn from February to May, “Sometimes it seems to me as if I’m just being used.” Your job, your boss and your employer are demanding too much of your attention span now that your obsessions about the state of the U.S.A. have subsided into dormant latency. You have to determine for yourself when that job, that boss and that employer has subsumed too much of your identify – and when you must assert your individuality, damn the consequences.

A romantic relationship that hovered in the background must come full front center as Venus conjuncts Mars in Aquarius in March. Is this the meaningful platonic alliance with a member of the opposite gender which crossed over the border to the realm of romance during February? A sharp disruption is immediately inevitable.

Various workplace crises beg various questions. 1999-OX3 in Taurus from March 2022 through March 2027 states that you must know who you are and what you want in order to wake up every morning to do what you need to do and to be who you need to be. Simultaneously, you ask yourself questions about who you are and what you want in such a way that reflect platitudes that can mean any one of a number of different things. You need to establish your self and your life with the same certainty with which you order breakfast, “Two eggs. Rye toast. Crisp bacon. Home fries, well done, with gravy.” The order never changes!

You either like very much what you do professionally or the entire task becomes hateful poison to you during Aphidas opposite Jupiter conjunct Nessus from February to March.

Dark music in a live, relatively small local club sparks your creativity and your identity – particularly if you are a musician – during Saturn in Aquarius trine Asbolus conjunct Bienor conjunct 1996-TL66 from March to June. If you are a musician, practice your instrument in private starting now. Otherwise, pursue a meaningful creative practice or project, starting now.

At the same time, perhaps at the same concert, a group of young adults are half-committed to the music but are really unsure as to who they are or why as Okyrhoe conjunct Jupiter conjunct Neptune square Asbolus conjunct Bienor conjunct 1996-TL66 in April – which, frankly, is natural enough. The youngest amongst them stands there vaguely looking around waiting for the zeitgeist to hit them upside the head like a caveman or cavewoman during Okyrhoe conjunct Neptune from March 2022 to March 2023. An older male who acts like their peer but who really should have left this scene a decade ago tries to convince this motley crew why this music is important as Hylonome sextiles Okyrhoe conjunct Jupiter conjunct Neptune in April.

But is the music important? What is important is that this motley group is looking for answers to questions they are not asking as Okyrhoe conjunct Jupiter conjunct Neptune sextile the North Node in April. They want to know what it’s all about and why. Then again, if you ask any one of them, “Hey! What’s it all about and why?”, you will get an extremely long-winded answer, based upon a pro and con dialectic of all contemporary trendy spiritual cliches (“It is what it is,”), as Okyrhoe conjunct Jupiter conjunct Neptune trines 1998-VG44 conjunct 2001-SQ73 in April.

All of this informs you whether you represent yourself for who you are or for who you are not as Saturn squares the North Node in April.

Ice-cold, hard-core business from the client energizes the corporate animal as 1998-BU48 trines Pluto conjunct Amycus from April through August. In order to accommodate all demands, you determine that you will render under Caesar what is Caesar’s during Jupiter conjunct Venus sextile Pluto conjunct Amycus, both stationing from Direct to Retrograde Motion, in late April, and that you will render unto your physical body and eternal soul . . . life on Earth . . .  during Jupiter conjunct Venus trine Cyllarus in late April. Good luck with that.

Even though you are quite unsure about whether this arrangement is mutually sustainable, you approach the near future of the balance of 2022 with this separation firmly in mind. For the most part, economics resolve initial concerns as Jupiter transits Aries from May to October – but angst resurfaces during Jupiter in Aries in early 2023. You will find that your “decision” is an unsustainable rationalization. You must nourish that spiritual jones in order to kill the ruthless live scorpion inside the existential tapeworm within your heart of hearts long before Neptune transits Aries from 2025 to 2039.

During Cyllarus in Leo from June 2022 through July 2039, your understanding of this separation expands into a different paradigm. To feed your creative ambitions – these same creative ambitions piqued by that dark music at the local club in the spring – requires business planning and money. You can redefine your interests not just to work and to have a fun life, but to work, and to work to create a lasting body of work of music, writing, film or art.

Then, extremely ugly complaints and complainers fill the workplace during Bienor in Cancer from July 2022 through January 2023. These complainers will not stop complaining. Even at an early juncture, you notice the energy replicate and mutate. At some point – likely, during Asbolus in Cancer from mid-September to mid-October – it will explode.

But do you need to be there? Can you work remotely from home and not need to go there? Will affiliations with your neighbors and interference by neighbors, politicians and power brokers roll off your back rather than annoy you, during 2002-VR130 square 2002-CR46 conjunct the South Node opposite Uranus conjunct the North Node during August and September? If so, then Uranus conjunct the North Node from July to September emphasizes, “Do it!” Your home is your castle. In your home, you reign and you rule.

You will struggle to keep your professional work life simple, organized and under control during Retrograde Jupiter from August to November. Put your personal ambitions on the back burner as you tame the work beast. Besides, you work at your employer to survive – but you aspire to much more than to survive. Publication, education, music recording, book tours, record tours – 1998-BU48 in Libra from September 2022 through August 2047 provides a limitlessly expansive future if you aspire to travel that route. You merely have to pay for the ante to gain entrance into the poker game.

You will not forgive yourself for betraying who you are in favor of who you are not as Saturn squares Uranus from September to November. Distinguish your core identify from your public face.

Extreme security protocol surrounding property, automobile, computer and cell phones in full effect throughout 2003-WL7 in Virgo from October through February 2023. Remember: These creeps will hover, and will try to break down your resistance and your children’s resistance, again and again and again, throughout Thereus conjunct Aphidas from September 2022 through August 2023. In many cases, they may need only successfully breach you or your children once to cause considerable damage. Share no passwords. Not, they cannot sleep over. No, they cannot drive you home – I will come over there now. Explain to teenagers, “Don’t share” your cell phone, computer or car because your . . . um . . . “friends” demand it!

You’ve been practicing your instrument, writing, painting or exercising your unique creative skill since seeing that band play dark music in the spring. Well, play that open mike at that same club, or participate in a group art show or poetry reading, just before and throughout Retrograde Mars in Gemini from November 2022 to Martin Luther King Day 2023. Be grateful for that crowd of rowdies giving you a hard time during Stationary Mars square Neptune during October and November – respond to their heckling in order to make them laugh! You win your own fan club as you meet other musicians who want to form a band with you as Retrograde Jupiter in very late Pisces during November.

Play with that new band after enough initial practice during Direct Motion Jupiter in very late Pisces during December. Thrash through a series of names for your band as you do so until you get one that fits during Elatus in Scorpio from December 2022 through March 2023. A well-designed poster can bring in the young crowd during 2001-SQ73 square Elatus during November. When you bring in that young crowd of hard-drinking music lovers, make sure that you get paid what you are worth as 2001-SQ73 trines Jupiter from November to December. If you are, then, as Steely Dan signs, “Get back, Jack, do it again.” Explain to club owners withholding your hard-earned cash from you, “I have a day job and I get paid well – and I am not working on my own time to funnel any free money to you,” during 2001-SQ73 opposite Pluto conjunct Amycus from December 2022 through February 2023.

New politicians, experts and partners with real skill, experience and accomplishments enter your life as Chariklo conjuncts 2003-CO1 from December 2022 through March 2027. Introduce yourself and shake a lot of hands during 2003-CO1 conjunct 2001-BL41 square the North Node during December – but don’t be in too much of a hurry. Hibernate at home and get some rest – the convoluted and obtuse changes at work and in the world at large during 2002-GZ32 trine the North Node from December 2022 through January 2023 will exhaust you. More importantly, you ask real, material questions of yourself, for which you have meaningful and substantive answers upon which you can build a new life as Jupiter transits Aries from late December 2022 through April 2023.

   

PISCES
2022

 

The idea of politics represents a contradiction to the humanitarian Fish. You use politics at work, amongst your social groups, and, if possible, in government, to get ahead – but you don’t like the idea that somebody else is falling behind. Pisces the Fish knows what suffering is – and you don’t like to see, or to cause others, to suffer.

As a result, when Jupiter entered Capricorn in December 2019, you took care of yourself, but you did not like the tenor of discourse in the U.S.A. Life under President Barack Obama was expensive – those federal taxes were murder! – but anybody in President Barack Obama’s U.S.A. had a role to play. So, when you heard, off the jump, that Donald J. Trump called Mexicans “rapists and drug dealers” when he launched his campaign for the U.S. Presidency in 2015, you couldn’t help but feel offended. You know that if he won, President Donald J. Trump would make life cheaper for you by repealing those taxes – but the tone was ugly.

COVID-19 was the great equalizer that you did not expect. Some people succeed and some people fail, some get awards and prizes and some people go to prison – but everybody dies.

Turns out that COVID-19 was the great equalizer that many people did not want. Florida Governor Ron DeSantis did not want it, refused to believe it or to police against it. President Donald J. Trump refused to wear a mask because it made him look week. So, the messaging continued: We’re all equal, but I’m more equal than you, buddy, so get out of my way and have a nice life.

Then, the death of George Floyd restored the basic message to the majority of the public – or so the public wanted to believe. The public saw four white cops in authority over one black man who died in their custody. Truth is, George Floyd, the one black man, was resisting arrest, successfully, by three white cops. The fourth cop, Derek Chauvin, with the help of the first three, successfully arrested him – as he died in their custody. The negative tenor serving as the backdrop of American politics under President Donald J. Trump erupted. Every individual, protestor, rioter, looter, vandal, cop, politician, pastor, had equal voice amongst an anti-hierarchical, anarchist mob.

You were not so foolish as to believe that any laws or rules were rewritten. The laws and the rules may have been suspended as the system cracked at the seams – but the laws and the rules were in place.

Your allies in the system knew this as well as you. You had the benefit of insight as long-term allies, still surviving, showed you what they needed to do in order to continue during Pholus conjunct 2002-GZ32 from December 2020 through November 2022. You didn’t need to know who it was that was protecting them to realize that they enjoyed such protection during Pluto conjunct Amycus in Capricorn from December 2020 to February 2023. You kept your eyes and your ears open – but you played your cards close to the vest. You acted cautiously – nobody needed to know about it.

Then, when the January 6 Insurrection happened, it disturbed, but it did not surprise you. You did not listen when people complained that those who stormed the Capitol Building in Washington D.C. should not be punished because nobody punished those who rioted, looted and vandalized before, during and after the George Floyd protests. You know that nobody suspended the laws and the rules.

But then you realized that this was all more than just changing laws and rules. You understood then the various visceral responses to the upcoming Pluto Returns of the United States of America throughout 2022 – and why people, instead of contemplating their significance, destroyed themselves as they tried to destroy those around them.

Now, Retrograde Venus in Capricorn during December 2021 and January 2022 forces you back to December 2019, to consider how all and everything got from there to here. Even so, Pisces the Big Fish is not a scorekeeper. You hear a tone to the wordless sounds of the crowds in the stores, in the bars, within the stadiums, on the streets. You sniff the wind for the scent of fire. You aim, despite a volatile humanity and everchanging astrology, to live in peace.

Whether in the middle of Woodstock, the Bull Market or the Civil War, some people are always in a dreadful hurry. Learn how to survive time as Saturn transits Aquarius from December 2020 through February 2023 – not to race it.

Truth be told, you aim to be the least cerebral, most physical individual in the office during Cyllarus opposite Chariklo conjunct 2001-KF77 conjunct 2001-BL41 during and after Christmas. Some people live in their heads which thinks like the marquee of a stock market index. You intend to live in your body which walks the planet Earth. Continue your gym regimen to keep that body intact.

Your ability to hold your place on the ground attracts people living on brain and sound waves who envy and wish to become who and what you are. Form new partnerships with some of those truly radical players during Chariklo in Aquarius from November 2021 through January 2028 if it furthers new professional opportunities. Shun cheaters like the plague during 2001-KF77 in Aquarius from December 2021 through December 2028 – but don’t be afraid to tell those truly radical players during Chariklo conjunct 2001-KF77 from December 2021 through April 2027, “I don’t play with those who cheat – and I don’t play with those who play with those who cheat. At some point, we must all make a decision.” However, cooperate with hot, trendy one-hit wonders – that way, masses of talented rookies will compete for your attention as 2001-BL41 transits Aquarius from December 2021 through January 2024.

Consult lawyers about long-term issues involving property and large-scale long-term financial strategies during 1998-BU48 in Libra from November 2021 through March 2022.

Expect another cycle of negative behavior from younger family members during Asbolus conjunct Bienor square Neptune from December 2021 through June 2022. Ensure all the negative channels for such negative attitudes are now closed to them as you prepare to handle a different set of consequences.

You make the final decisions about the best of the new players as Jupiter squares the North Node in late December – decisions based upon your innate and acquired knowledge, not upon “Instagram Likes.” Why? Because it is all about how value monetizes, or translates into Loonie Dollar Peso, during the North Node in Taurus from January 2022 to June 2023.

But, now, in the short term, Ceres conjunct the North Node during January says that there isn’t going to be any Loonie Dollar Peso. ¿Entiendes que digo? So, who will provide such Loonie Dollar Peso? Professional connections who have known you for a dog’s age as Pluto trines the North Node from January to March.

Of course, this makes Pisces the Fish seem real slick – and, should the need arise, Pisces can be slick enough, indeed. But that’s not the real deal. Truth be told, you begin to earn your share of warmly given, generous rewards for all that you have done, and for who you are, as Jupiter transits Pisces from January through April.

But keep it real. There’s work to do – in fact, there is a big, complicated, heavy, obtuse and overwhelming job to do across one or three or five different physical spaces as 2002-GZ32 sextiles Jupiter sextiles Uranus conjunct Albion during February. A lot of heavy lifting – not metaphorical, but literally, heavy.

Is somebody stealing from one of these multiple job sites? Yes. Be cool – the North Node square 2003-WL7 opposite Crantor during February and March denotes that there is video surveillance. It never felt better to be monitored and supervised in your entire life!

Big-time financial players connect on the job site during Venus conjunct Mars in Capricorn in February. Is it love or it is money – or is it love of money? Is it romance or is it bromance? Is it the initial overture of a corporate merger? Once Venus conjuncts Mars in Aquarius in March, you won’t be able to see it anymore, and you won’t know for sure what eventually happened. Out of sight, out of mind.

You’re intrigued, slightly. You’re interested, sort of. Truth be told, you are only an adult because you must provide for yourself and for others; otherwise, Cyllarus in Cancer opposite Pluto conjunct Amycus in Capricorn from February to May notes that you heart is with the children. As it should be – you want to maintain a clean heart.

The adult side of you – most specifically, your left brain – hurts. You know you need a certain amount of money to get the property and large-scale, big-ticket items (car, technology, teenagers’ advanced education) that you need – but Chiron conjunct 2000-QB243 from February 2022 through May 2024 notices that that number fluctuates too much for your personal comfort. The best solution to that problem lies in getting more money than you need, which means that you will need to do some very aggressive business. Well, 1999-OX3 in Taurus from March 2022 through March 2027 does very aggressive business – it gets the money it sets out to get, then it gets even more. With all this in mind, you make power moves to get a better position or more money during Aphidas opposite Jupiter conjunct Nessus from February to March. Don’t be denied.

You read disturbing news or receive disturbing correspondence from a local politician, law enforcement official or school administrator during Saturn in Aquarius trine Asbolus conjunct Bienor conjunct 1996-TL66 from March to June about a negative trend in your children’s school, your neighborhood, city, state or province that might involve your children. Speak with your children to tell them, “Whether you approve or not, I will heighten my vigilance.”

You discuss this local problem in earnest at your job and attract colleagues who now view you as a leader during Okyrhoe conjunct Jupiter conjunct Neptune square Asbolus conjunct Bienor conjunct 1996-TL66 in April. Certain young rookie female recent college graduates cite you as their mentor, particularly because they idealize you as a representative of the truth as Okyrhoe conjunct Jupiter conjunct Neptune sextile the North Node in April, but also, significantly, because you are a confidante of important power brokers and experienced players as Hylonome sextiles Okyrhoe conjunct Jupiter conjunct Neptune in April. These young rookie female recent college graduates love how you address the ideals of the children as Okyrhoe conjunct Jupiter conjunct Neptune trines 1998-VG44 conjunct 2001-SQ73 in April – but, truth be told, they still feel somewhat like children themselves – indeed, many of them are still scared of the world at large throughout Okyrhoe conjunct Neptune from March 2022 to March 2023.

Further disturbing correspondence from a local politician, law enforcement official or school administrator or additional disturbing local news during Saturn square the North Node in April illustrates and confirms recent negative trends. Your leadership in the community consolidates. A spouse or business partner reaches out to local power players whom you know or to your employer about such issues, or local power players or your employer makes their own public statements, as 1998-BU48 trines Pluto conjunct Amycus from April through August. What you say and do carries considerably more weight with such power brokers and in fact with law enforcement officials during Jupiter conjunct Venus sextile Pluto conjunct Amycus, both stationing from Direct to Retrograde Motion, in late April, because what motivates you is not political power but strictly the long-term welfare and development of the children as Jupiter conjunct Venus trines Cyllarus in late April.

You see the prospects of, and may actually see a little more, money, during Jupiter in Aries from May to October – but this trend will only go so far. You don’t want to ask bosses, “Look – is this a joke?” Indeed, you already know the dark answer. Take the initial steps so as to augment this trend significantly, whether under your current employer or under a new one, during Jupiter in Aries in early 2023. Then, resolve to quintuple it during Neptune in Aries from 2025 to 2039.

More importantly, you cement your status as a larger-than-life local hero during Cyllarus in Leo from June 2022 through July 2039. The adoration and adulation are flattering – but, remember: You must continue to live up to and to prove that you are that hero. This requires vigilance and devotion to duty.

This role also earns you unexpected enemies. Negative, evil, thuggish kids see you as the enemy and openly hate you during Bienor in Cancer from July 2022 through January 2023. These kids have something evil in the works that they plan to launch during Asbolus in Cancer from mid-September to mid-October. You need to find an ally amongst those children, savvy and tough beyond their years, but clean, who knows who is who, what the deal is, and when that deal is going to go down. It is much harder than it looks – and it does not look easy.

On the business front: If you hope to make that money that you require for all the things that you need, then Uranus conjunct the North Node from July to September demands that you and your people must make much larger transactions much more secure much quicker. Talk to and work with tech-savvy e-commerce experts to get your business moving as 2002-VR130 squares 2002-CR46 conjunct the South Node opposite Uranus conjunct the North Node during August and September. Troubleshooting logistics wastes valuable time – time that you need in abundance to help keep the local peace. Secure pre-payment. Old school but check. Block-chain? New school and check. Bitcoin? Potentially dirty. You need to make choices.

Turn your attention away from personal finance during Retrograde Jupiter from August to November to address your civic duties.

Because local legal vigilance and peacekeeping will demand skills and resources beyond your capacity, 1998-BU48 in Libra from September 2022 through August 2047 absolutely requires that you develop some type of relationship with local law enforcement, local corrections, the local judiciary, local religious leaders and more than one journalist. Good luck, Rockford Colombo.

A financial loss during Saturn square Uranus from September to November demands that you pay greater attention to business. Indeed, potential business partners who watch you make mistakes as Thereus conjuncts Aphidas from September 2022 through August 2023 have the answers to the questions that you have yet to ask. Certain individuals who witnessed as you took that loss during 2003-WL7 in Virgo from October through February 2023 suggest that you might need new business partners, or just business partners in general – meaning, them. Assert, “I’d need time to think about it.”

The timing is bad. Retrograde Mars in Gemini from November 2022 to Martin Luther King Day 2023 signifies that the problems in your family, schools, neighborhood, city and state or province now reaches critical mass. This makes you extremely angry, irrational, paranoid and judgmental as Stationary Mars squares Neptune during October and November. Slow down!

Planning is necessary. You should not be the one making those plans – you fulfill those plans. Really, you are the rage of Neptune, the Lion of Judah, come to open the scroll and its seven seals during Retrograde Jupiter in very late Pisces during November. You know what is at stake. You are not playing.

The first gang symbol, coded language and gang signifier that you see as 2001-SQ73 squares Elatus during November induces you to familiarize yourself with gang symbology, coded language and gang signifier protocol more profoundly during Elatus in Scorpio from December 2022 through March 2023 – but concentrate upon the gang symbol, coded language and gang signifier that you see now that pertains to the current crisis during 2001-SQ73 trine Jupiter from November to December.

You have conquered, what you have conquered, before and during Direct Motion Jupiter in very late Pisces during December. Consolidate the peace through all necessary legal action and protocol.

Much smarter politicians, scientists and visionary thinkers and writers align in new partnerships with some of the truly radical local players as Chariklo conjuncts 2003-CO1 from December 2022 through March 2027. Introduce yourself and show all appropriate respect – but 2003-CO1 conjunct 2001-BL41 square the North Node during December advises you to remain aloof from their expertise by making a joke, “My idea of microeconomics is unusually small – it involves the paper money folded within my wallet.”

However, when some of your big money player allies and associates explain to you a potentially lucrative but vastly complex work project or private equity investment opportunity as 2002-GZ32 trines the North Node from December 2022 through January 2023, act like they are E.F. Hutton, that E.F. Hutton is talking and you are listening. Indeed, if the project is sexy enough, and not just some dry as dirt business-to-business wholesale deal, try to get some of your own teenagers and adult children involved in the nuts and bolts of the project as 2001-SQ73 opposes Pluto conjunct Amycus from December 2022 through February 2023.

Continue forward making those initial steps to increase your income exponentially during Jupiter in Aries from late December 2022 through April 2023.
