USA Progressed New Moon – March 25, 2024

I discuss the imminent USA Secondary Progressed New Moon which will occur on March 25, 2024. This is a significant astrological event that occurs about every 29 years.

The sign, house and degree of Secondary Progressed lunation events can inform us a lot about what this coming cycle may hold for America.

In this case there is a Lunar Eclipse occurring on the same day followed by a major Solar Eclipse on April 8, 2024 that makes striking aspects to the USA natal chart, as well as the nations’ ongoing Chiron Return.

Episode transcript:

Greetings all, welcome to Aquarian Diary. I’m your host, John Irving.

It is March 16th, 2024.

There are two versions of this episode. One is short, it’s an executive summary. This is the long version where I go into a lot more detail.

If you don’t have a lot of time or aren’t interested in a lot of detail, you may prefer the shorter version. It has the word “Summary” in the title. And of course, I’ll link that in the episode description.

Today, I want to talk about something that I think is very interesting. I actually noticed this a couple months ago, believe it or not. But I had to make a whole episode explaining some of the basics of Progressions because I felt like some of my listeners may not have a full understanding of how they work.

And it takes quite a bit of effort to produce an episode like this because there’s a lot of graphics and a tremendous amount of calculations that I have to double and triple check. And even then, I’m not entirely sure that I don’t make a typographical error or something, but I try not to.

So in between my other episodes, I’ve been working on this. And I want to present that here to you today.

I strongly encourage you to watch that episode, by the way. It was published on March 7th of 2024 and it is titled “Timing Cycles of Life with Secondary Progressions.” That’s a good primer on how some of these secondary progressed lunation events unfold and occur.

As usual, I will be putting links in the episode description to related episodes. So you can find a link to it there.

Also, again, there will be quite a few important graphics in this episode. So if you happen to be listening to this by podcast, you probably want to watch this on YouTube instead. It’s hard to conceptualize this without visual aids.

The USA Secondary Progressed New Moon occurs on March 25, 2024 at 19° 26′ Pisces.

So what I noticed quite some time ago was that on March 25th of 2024, that’s about two weeks from now, the United States of America has a Secondary Progressed New Moon occurring in the fourth house at 19 degrees and 26 minutes of Pisces. This is a very important event, as I described in my primer on this topic.

Most New Moons mark the beginnings of new 28-29 year cycles and they occur in different signs and different houses through the zodiac. As far as I’m aware, I haven’t seen anybody talk about this, and I think it’s quite notable given the political and social environment in the United States right now. It’s something we should pay attention to.

As I mentioned in my previous episode, I may just refer to Secondary Progressions as “Progressions” for the sake of brevity.

Now I am using what is known as the Sibly chart for the United States of America based on a birth date of July 4th, 1776 at 5:10 pm LMT in Philadelphia. There are a few charts that people use for the United States, but this is the most commonly used one and it is used by many top astrologers.

We can make and study astrology charts for organizations, institutions, corporations, or any entity that we can define an inception date for.

A couple years ago, I did a whole episode on the USA Pluto return, and as far as I’m concerned, if we look at what’s been happening in the United States in recent years politically and socially, it’s pretty much irrefutable that that relates to the USA Pluto return, which is a very rare transit, and that to me makes a very compelling case for the accuracy or near-accuracy of the Sibly chart. If we’re objective about it, it’s very hard to dispute. The recent political tumult is completely unprecedented historically. There is no analog for it, not unless you go back to the Civil War itself.

Also, on the morning of 9/11, transiting Pluto was exact within 17 minutes – that’s minutes, not degrees – of the US natal Ascendant in the Sibly chart at 12° 21’ of Sagittarius. That is dramatically precise.

I don’t have time to cover how this might play out or not using the various birth times that are available. Not only would that be very time-consuming, it would be very confusing. So I’m setting that issue aside. Again, many of the leading astrologers use this chart. And the timing of the USA Pluto return validates it.

I also looked up the Sabian symbol for 19-20 degrees of Pisces, where this progressed New Moon is occurring, which reads “A Table Set for an Evening Meal.”

That’s very interesting because it plays into this theme of the fourth house and the people. It’s like a gathering, the family coming together. It’s a period of harmony. It’s a period of people setting aside their worries and cares and coming together to enjoy the fruit of their efforts. It’s the preparation and anticipation for a coming together that will occur very soon, where people set aside their differences. So it sets a very evocative image for this degree that I think is quite relevant.

In my previous episode, I discussed the Balsamic phase of this cycle and how that plays out, and I’m not going to explain all that here again.

The USA Secondary Progressed Balsamic Moon phase commenced on November 28, 2020.

In this case, I calculated that the Balsamic phase of this progressed lunation cycle began November 28th of 2020, and of course it will end at the New Moon on March 25th of this year. So it has spent 3 years, 3 months, and 26 days in the Balsamic phase.

I find this particularly interesting given all of the challenges that have come up in recent years in America, politically and socially. Because the Balsamic phase is really a phase of endings, where there’s kind of a turning inwards. The energy is cycling down in preparation for the New Moon, which will occur in a couple of weeks, and then the energy starts to cycle up. So we’re going from a period of retrenchment into the beginning of a period of growth.

It’s also interesting that this is occurring in the fourth house, because the fourth house in mundane astrology, or the astrology of nations or worldly affairs, which is a little different than it is for personal astrology charts, the fourth house represents the people and the mood of the people.

The USA Sibly Natal chart highlighting a prominent square between Mars and Neptune.

In the US Sibly chart, there’s a very prominent square between Mars and Neptune. Neptune rules the fourth house. This aspect can lead to acts of aggression, violence, or even war that is not based in reality, or that is based in delusion, or that is somehow misguided. That needs to be kept in mind when considering the US fourth house.

So there’s a lot of people on both the right and the left politically who are dissatisfied with the status quo. They’re unhappy with the way things are, the old ways are not working. Pretty much everybody is unhappy about something, and in some cases it’s quite extreme.

Even with the election that’s coming up, people are unhappy with all of the candidates or prospects for the presidency. Of course, there are some people who support the current candidates, but pretty much everyone agrees, they’re not perfect.

It’s also really interesting to note that the January 6th, 2021 insurrection in Washington DC occurred about 5 weeks after the progressed Balsamic moon phase commenced. I just find the timing of that so interesting. And there’s been a lot of focus on this whole question of the 2020 election and that’s still playing out now.

And of course, Joe Biden was elected on November 3rd of 2020, just before the Balsamic phase technically began, but we’re so close. We’re into that waning energy of that moon phase. So it’s no wonder people are upset and unhappy about the way things are.

Again, for more detail about how these phases work, see my previous episode, which is a bit of a tutorial about the basic aspects of this.

So like I said, during the Balsamic phase, it’s not a period of growth, it’s a period of turning inwards and it can be very frustrating because it’s hard to express your energies during this cycle if you try and start or create or build new things during this phase. It’s a bit like swimming upstream because the energy is flowing the other way. But that should start to flip around come March 25th of this year.

I also calculate that after the progressed New Moon, the moon will progress to the first degree of Aries on December 5th of this year. So the fifth house is a lighter energy generally and more expressive and creative energy than the fourth. Although the US fifth house is fiery, it’s generally a more creative and expressive energy. So December 5th may represent a shift into a bit more of a fun or lighter side of self-expression.

One of the things that has been very prominent during this period in America has been this grievance and a desire to go back to some mythical past that never really existed. You know, that is kind of fourth house stuff for the people.

Also, there’s been many issues around housing and housing affordability, and a lot of people have moved. And we had all of the effects of what happened during the pandemic when a lot of people had to stay at home, which led to all kinds of unhappiness around, you know, social issues and social lives and loneliness and disruption in our communities and the way we lived and the way we worked and a lot of people started working from home. Again, all fourth house issues. Think about it.

And, you know, people have been experiencing insurance rates going through the roof, and being displaced by extreme weather events, and dealing with all of that kind of stuff. And dealing with inflation, which has really increased people’s expenses and they haven’t been able to entertain themselves or travel as much in the same ways that they used to, trapped at home in many respects. And people spent a lot more time connecting with people in their immediate family environment.

I could go on and on about how this has expressed itself and the grievances that it’s fueled. There’s kind of a rage at the economic and political systems just because people haven’t liked what they’ve been going through.

And I know what that’s like when you go through the Balsamic phase of the secondary progressed lunation cycle. It can feel like you’re swimming upstream, like I said, and you get exhausted.

The beginning of the ending of that should be occurring in a couple weeks. So again, good news.

Now I made many calculations, which I will display on the screen in graphic form for you.

And, of course, all of this is based on my astrology software, and I am presuming that the ephemeris within it and its calculations are accurate. I don’t have a reason to suspect they’re not, but I just want to offer that disclaimer. I have come across an awful lot of inaccurate figures on the “interweb”.

I thought it would be interesting to look at the time periods when the United States Secondary Progressed Sun ingressed into various signs. Because as I explained in my previous episode, those have an effect on us and what we experience and express.

It’s kind of like we’re swimming in this energy without even really fully being aware of it for the most part, and it has an effect on us by sign and by house, and these cycles last for 30 years. The Progressed Sun moves a degree per year.

The USA Secondary Progressed Sun ingresses by sign and house from 1886 through 2034.

So I went back all the way to 1886 when the Progressed Sun entered Scorpio.

In 1916, the Progressed Sun entered Sagittarius, which is the first house, very different energy from the 12th, and very different energy from Scorpio.

Of course, you’re probably wondering about the Great Depression, which occurred while the Progressed Sun was transiting Sagittarius and the first house. There were a few notable transits that occurred around this time that may relate. Transits, not Progressions.

One was that Saturn first ingressed into Capricorn, the second house, in March of 1929. It then retrograded back into Sagittarius. It then resumed a more permanent transit of the second house at the end of November of 1929.

From the second house, Saturn would oppose the natal Venus, Jupiter, Sun, and Mercury of the United States in the 8th house. It would square the natal Saturn in the 11th.

Meanwhile, Pluto was transiting Cancer and would hit all of those personal planets. And Neptune began a rather long stay in the 10th house of the Sibly chart.

Another interesting thing, and this is by no means an exhaustive study of this topic, it’s just for your brief entertainment.

The Solar Arc Moon at 27-28° Cancer opposed the natal Pluto in Capricorn exactly on October 6th, 1929. The infamous Wall Street Crash started in September of that year and ended in mid-November. So this solar arc was smack dab in the middle of that. Precisely exact within days or weeks.

Why is that special? Well, that solar arc can only occur once every 360 years. Yes, I said 360 years. That’s why. So do the odds on that.

One more comment on this. The next sign from the 2nd house of the United States Sibly chart is Aquarius where America’s Moon is positioned. Saturn transiting the Moon sign can be very challenging. So the whole time Saturn was in Capricorn, the 2nd house, and then the 3rd house, the Moon sign, and then the 4th house after the 3rd, that’s a difficult period for sure. The Great Depression would last until 1939.

I just took a really quick look at this. Like I said, it’s not exhaustive at all.

Another little interesting side note here. This 3rd house Moon in Aquarius, I think, can explain some of the peculiar contrarianism we see in American culture. This is like somebody who disagrees with the status quo or conventional wisdom just for the sake of being different. It’s like “I don’t care what anyone says, nobody’s going to tell me what to think or say” even if by doing so they reject logic or objective evidence. Hence, things like conspiracism or casual rejection of authorities or mainstream media. But I digress.

In 1945, the Progressed Sun moved into Capricorn and the 2nd house. And if you think about it, this is post-World War II and the United States went through a huge growth spurt economically because it wasn’t damaged nearly as much as most of Europe after the Second World War. And it had all of its infrastructure, factories, and everything else running full tilt. And you know, this is the period, effectively, of the baby boomers, when all the soldiers return and everybody started having kids. And it led to a huge period of prosperity and growth economically that would last for many years. This occurred, of course, while the Progressed Sun was in the 2nd house, which rules money and real estate and things like that. Very interesting to note that.

The next shift, 30 years later, was in 1975 when the Progressed Sun moved into Aquarius in the 3rd house up until 2004. And if we really think about it, this is when computing technology, pagers, cell phones, personal computers, and internet technology really took hold was during this period. And the United States was leading the charge in this technology.

Aquarius governs technology and the 3rd house deals with communications and information technology, in other words. So wow, right? Very, very interesting.

In late 2004, the Progressed Sun moved into Pisces. This is the area of the chart that deals with the people in mundane astrology and in personal astrology it deals with your literal home and home environment.

And I would not be surprised that if we looked back to this point in time, around 2004, that that wasn’t really the beginning of the shift of a lot of the social and political division in the United States. Because people have a lot of different ideas about what it means to be an American and to live an American life. Is it the urban people? Is it the rural people? And things like home ownership, the proverbial white picket fence America, is that dream alive or not?

And again, later on in this period, the Progressed Moon will enter its Balsamic phase. So this is a closing energy.

And more than just our home and home environment, the 4th house represents our roots. Like on a psychic or spiritual level, it can represent our lineage and our past and our ancestors. So there’s a lot of karmic stuff going on really deep down inside in that area that is just enormous in scope. That’s way too much for me to get into here now. But I find this very interesting, the timing of this.

The Progressed Sun itself will not move into the 5th house until late 2034. However, it’s important to note as well, which I’m going to get into in a minute, what’s going on with a lunar aspect of this cycle, which is again a 28-29 year cycle that’s overlapping these Progressed Sun cycles.

The 5th house is generally a very creative and fun house. It’s the most fun house of the zodiac. It deals with creativity, self-expression, children. It’s a heart-based energy.

Whereas the 4th house is ruled by the Moon. The Moon shifts very quickly in our daily lives. It goes through a cycle every 28 days. So people who have strongly placed Moons in their natal charts, for example – just to illustrate a point – can go through fairly rapid mood shifts. They can be quite moody.

So again, it’s not unsurprising to witness the kinds of trends we’ve been experiencing while the Progressed Sun has been going through the United States’ 4th house. It’s a feeling-based thing. This is why a lot of what we’ve been seeing appears to be irrational.

All the conspiracy theories, people pursuing paths politically, for example, that are actually nihilistic or undermining of their own interests because people are being motivated by their feelings around these kinds of things. It’s not entirely rational and we just have to accept that. That’s the way it is.

Everybody has emotions and feelings and they’re playing out for everyone to see. And we’ve been struggling to understand them from an intellectual or rational perspective and we can’t.

One of the things that people don’t realize is that if you don’t have a solid foundation, you know, like for example, there’s a huge homelessness problem, Balsamic phase in the 4th house, you can’t have a strong career, 10th house, the opposite sign, in the opposite house. Because you can’t hold down a good job if you’re living in a cardboard shack, right? Obviously.

So, the country has been experiencing a lot of social disruption, including things like the opioid and drug crisis that has been plaguing society and there have been homeless encampments all over the place. Very Neptunian. But America will be dealing with these kinds of issues probably all the way through 2034 to some degree.

Again, I’m a bit frustrated because there’s so much I could talk about here, but I don’t want to overwhelm people with data.

So, I also calculated the progressed New Moons and the progressed Full Moons going back to 1905.

The USA Secondary Progressed New Moons from 1905 through 2024.

The USA Secondary Progressed Full Moons from 1920 through 2038.

There was a progressed New Moon in December 1905 in Scorpio in the 12th house.

There was a Full Moon in February 1920 in Gemini in the 7th house.

The next New Moon was August of 1935 in Sagittarius in the 1st. An interesting note here is that Roosevelt’s New Deal with America was implemented between 1933 and 1938. Again, this progressed New Moon occurred in August of 1935, right in the middle of that and in the 1st house. So that’s like a new definition of who we are. We’re going to change our identity fundamentally. Very interesting.

The next Full Moon was in August of 1949 in the 8th house. Very interestingly, this one was conjunct the United States Venus and Jupiter. Harry Truman unveiled his Fair Deal program. The treaty creating NATO occurred. And the cornerstone of the United Nations headquarters was laid.

This was after World War II, of course. And this Full Moon conjunct the natal Venus and Jupiter of the United States in the 8th house, which also deals with things like banking and money. This was a period of huge prosperity and abundance and growth for America. This is the period that everyone wants to relive.

That may never happen again, but I think this very interesting Full Moon in August of 1949 illustrates that quite clearly.

The next New Moon occurred in 1965 in Capricorn in the 2nd house. 1965. This is during the Uranus-Pluto conjunction in Virgo. There was this huge counter-cultural movement that emerged around this time that asked a lot of fundamental questions about values.

And the second house can govern our values and our connection with our lives. You know, a lot of people rejected the modern ways of living and wanted to do things like live communally and live off the land and all that kind of stuff. Fascinating.

The events of the mid-1960s, I think, are still being played out socially. It was also a period of a lot of social justice issues coming to the fore as well. The war in Vietnam, voting rights, racial issues being addressed, feminism, all these kinds of things. Absolutely fascinating. The timing of this progressed New Moon of the United States in early 1965.

The next Full Moon occurred in April of 1979 in the 9th in Leo. This would have marked a culmination. And again, it was after this that we got Reaganism and all of that kind of political doctrine came to the fore in the 1980s, as well as religious groups becoming politically active during this time. The 9th house deals with international things and higher education and the law, as well as religion and philosophy.

The next New Moon was in October of 1994 in Aquarius in the 3rd house. And 1994 was when technology and the internet and stuff was really starting to take off and very soon afterwards would completely change the world. This is before the dot-com crash, when the stock market started to go crazy over technology stocks and the prospects of what this technology would do for society. And it was a very exciting period. And that was October 1994, a progressed New Moon in Aquarius in the 3rd house, which deals with technology and communications.

The next Full Moon occurred in Virgo in the 10th on December 24th, 2008, less than two months after President Obama was elected. We all know about this, right? This was the 2007-2008 financial crisis, which almost brought the world into a Great Depression. And the US government had to bail out the banks. There was a huge banking crisis.

Millions of people’s properties were affected tremendously. A lot of people lost their homes. And this was the culmination of that energy. The energy would begin to wane after that. So it’s like there was a huge bubble. This Full Moon represented a huge bubble. And of course, the opposing sun was in the 4th house, which represents the people and their living conditions.

The next progressed New Moon is the one that will occur in a couple weeks on March 25th in Pisces. And I’ve already kind of talked about how that’s going to play out.

This New Moon will culminate in a Full Moon in September of 2038 in Libra in the 11th house. This is the house that deals with society. And our hopes and dreams. This one is quite close to the US Midheaven. So it would be interesting to see how that plays out.

But the 11th house, which is the house of Aquarius by default, deals with groups and organizations, our hopes and dreams, social issues, social justice causes, activities and interests that seek or aim to improve the betterment of society, in which case society means everybody, not just the people at the top. And it can also refer to legislation or legislators that govern the country.

So I could have gone into a phenomenal amount of detail. You could actually do a whole episode on each one of these events. But I wanted this to be reasonably long, and I didn’t want to overwhelm people with information.

What you can do is you can look at the graphics on the screen, contemplate the timing of these events, the Progressed Sun shifting through the signs and houses, the Progressed New Moons, the progressed Full Moons, and draw any conclusions you may from that as it unfolds.

Another thing is that there are many aspects that occur at these events, which for the most part I am not getting into because you could literally talk about all this stuff for hours and hours. Anybody who has had a reading with me will know that I can talk about these kinds of things in a meaningful way for a very long time. There’s so much you can mine from these kinds of things. But this is already very long to begin with.

The USA Sibly astrology chart featuring the March 25, 2024 Lunar Eclipse at 5° 07′ Libra.

Remarkably, on the very same day as the Secondary Progressed New Moon, there is also an eclipse occurring at 5 degrees and 7 minutes of Libra. That eclipse is within 4 degrees of the US Midheaven.

It is trining the South Node and sextiling the North Node. That’s pretty cool. It suggests a fated component to this.

It is also squaring the United States Jupiter and Venus in the 8th house in Cancer. Jupiter represents growth and optimism, good luck and good fortune, good foreign trade relations and treaties, as well as the clergy and religion.

And of course, Venus often represents money, nice things, and prosperity as well in many ways. And pleasure and the arts and love and diplomacy.

So around March 25th, this eclipse could represent some kind of sudden challenge to those aspects of the country.

With all that energy in the 8th house and its proximity to the Midheaven, it wouldn’t be surprising if this manifests financially, like in terms of banking. Like there could be some kind of a crisis in the banking system or some of the smaller banks or something like that, or investment funds, hedge funds. I mean, there’s certain people who are speculating that there’s commercial real estate bubbles, that there’s residential real estate bubbles, or it could be insurance companies, or something financially related.

I would not be surprised if around this time, especially because the New Moon is just about to occur, this is the very end of the Balsamic phase, in the 4th house, which deals with home and people, that there is something fairly significant that occurs that is a concern for the general population.

The USA Sibly astrology chart featuring the April 8, 2024 Solar Eclipse at 19° 24′ Aries.

On April 8th of 2024, there is a solar eclipse at 19° 24’ Aries.

This one is even more notable because at that time, Chiron is at 19° 24’ of Aries as well. Like this is stunning.

So just to be clear, transiting Sun, Moon, and Chiron at exactly the same degree, Sun and Moon forming an eclipse because they’re very close to the North Node.

This eclipse is also passing right over America. You get that?

Transiting Chiron, transiting Sun, transiting Moon, all in an alignment, or conjuncting.

But it gets even crazier because the eclipse and Chiron are within less than a degree of the United States’ natal Chiron. That is crazy.

Chiron, as I have talked about here before, deals with our wounding, wounding that is often unconscious, but it operates in a way that it affects our experience and our reality. And it usually relates to things that occurred in our early childhood.

You know, like your father shot your pony, or one of your parents passed away at a young age, or you were rejected at school, or bullied, or things like that. You didn’t feel accepted, or that you were safe, or that you fit in.

The April 8, 2024 Solar Eclipse path of totality over Eastern North America.

So this Chiron, natally at 20 degrees of Aries, is the Chiron for the country of the United States. And it is going to be basically body slammed by this eclipse and the Chiron return which are happening at the same time.

The USA Chiron return is within a very tight orb from about May of 2023 through April of 2025.

If all that wasn’t bad enough, at the time of this eclipse, Mars and Saturn are conjunct within just over a degree, at 13-14 degrees of Pisces.

This is one of the most frustrating transits. It can really provoke anger and even rage. Mars feels stymied and blocked, typically by some outside force, agency, or authority that Mars cannot escape or control. Mars likes to do its own thing whenever it wants, and when it can’t, it can seethe and lash out in frustration and resentment. This transit usually only lasts a few days, but the fact that it’s occurring on the day of the eclipse is not a good omen.

By the way, if you personally have any significant points or planets around 19 degrees of Aries, you’ll want to pay attention to this eclipse, what aspects it’s making, and what house it’s occurring in.

Generally, it’s believed that countries or areas where this eclipse is visible are most affected by this, and this one definitely is affecting the United States.

So Aries is the masculine energy where this is occurring, right? It’s the thing that gets you going, it’s what moves you. Aries likes to start things, it doesn’t like to sit still, it likes to act, it can sometimes suffer from foot-in-mouth disease where it speaks before thinking. So in other words, it acts before it thinks.

And the lower expressions can also be things like combativeness, overly assertive, overly aggressive, and even in extreme cases, hostility and war, because it’s ruled by Mars, the god of war. So there’s positive and negative expressions to this, but those would be some of the more negative ones.

With Chiron and Aries, there is woundedness around those kinds of energies. So one is afraid to act because maybe they were criticized for acting that way when they were young, or penalized for expressing their Mars or Aries-type energy. In other words, they feel inhibited about expressing their true self, or their unique creativity, like maybe they felt judged for something they made and other people rejected it.

So sometimes people can withhold the expression of themselves, or they can overcompensate by trying too hard to get people to recognize and acknowledge their unique self or creativity. So it might be like someone who just tries too hard to make an impression, which is a turn-off in and of itself, but it’s motivated by this core weakness, or wounding, or insecurity about just being themselves. I hope that makes sense.

There’s a component to that in the United States as a country. Every country would have Chiron somewhere.

And if people don’t proactively address this by doing things like shadow work, it’ll come out in all kinds of really weird ways. Like someone will be like really inappropriately assertive or aggressive. In ways that actually undermine them, because they don’t know how to work with the wounding.

Or they’ll just get triggered a lot. Either they shut themselves down, or they, like I said, try and overcompensate. And in either case, it’s not a healthy outcome. So that kind of wounding is going to be really brought to the fore. Or there could be a new wounding event that occurs that triggers a Chironic response. Chiron feels rejected and not accepted for who they are. That’s the mentality that’s present here.

The USA Sibly chart Chiron Return, within a 2° orb, spans May 2023 through March 2025.

And the Chiron return itself is a general fairly long period when the wounding of the nation comes to the fore and is put in your face. And there’s nothing you can do about this.

When you go through your Chiron return, you’re just going to have all this stuff from your subconscious that relates to your own personal wounding come to the surface, either emotionally or psychologically, or in your experience, the outer world will trigger or mirror your wounding. Things will happen to you that make you feel worthless or insecure or lacking in confidence.

It’s the “woe is me” kind of thing, where everyone is beating you up or bullying you. It feels like that kind of energy where you’re just being rejected, not accepted, not loved, not appreciated. You can’t just be yourself. And you go into this cycle of just feeling like there’s nothing that you can do.

Again, this is all psychology and wounding. And in a chart for a country like this, we’re talking about stuff that could go back generations, if not to the founding of the country.

And we all know what the US was founded on. It was founded just before the Civil War, effectively, in many ways. So that is the kind of stuff that is probably going to be coming to the surface in a big way.

And it still is if we look at social and political things that are occurring presently in the United States. It’s like all that stuff that was never really fully resolved after the Civil War is still lingering out there in people’s consciousness and is playing out in political battles right now in front of our eyes.

So with major Chiron transits like a Chiron return, you can go through a period where there’s a lot of sadness and grief because you have to process and feel that wounding. It’s like a time when you can’t really repress it or just ignore it.

So this is kind of like the shadow of the United States on a very deep subconscious, unconscious lineage kind of historical level. And again, with the eclipse occurring on that Chiron, wow, this could be really intense. Like something major could come up or shocking could occur that triggers that.

Also in Aries, there’s the potential for violent action. So be aware of that.

Mercury is retrograde at this point and it’s within five degrees of this eclipse as well. So this brings in the mental and communication aspects of these kinds of things. And retrogrades are generally about looking backwards. So that has to be considered as well.

So I’ll leave it there for now.

Astrology nerds right now are probably pulling their hair out. But you didn’t mention this? What about that aspect? Or this historical event? Well again, I’ve covered over a hundred years of history here and obviously I can’t cover everything in a few minutes, much less a few hours. Whole books could be written on some of these developments.

My main point was just to give a very high level overview of how Progressions can play out for a country like the United States and also of course point out the significance of this Progressed New Moon on March 25th, 2024.

I will document any corrections or errors that emerge on my errata page at AquarianDiary.com as usual.

Pluto at 29° Capricorn – A Karmic Reckoning

I discuss the imminent astrological transit of Pluto to 29° Capricorn followed very shortly thereafter by Pluto’s first ingress into Aquarius since 1777. This remarkable astrology heralds a significant shift in energy and changes that will manifest in our world.

Episode transcript:

Greetings all, it is January 26, 2023.

One of the things on my list of things to talk about is the imminent transit of Pluto at 29 degrees, or the anaretic degree of Capricorn.

This will mark the beginning of the transition from Pluto in Capricorn, where it has been transiting since 2008, to the transit of Aquarius, which will officially commence on March 23 of this year, so very soon.

Pluto hits 29 degrees of Capricorn on February 11 and then makes its first ingress into Aquarius on March 23.

Now why is this significant?

The anaretic degree, or the 29th degree, of any sign, is considered to be extra potent because the energies reach a culmination before they shift to the next sign and start a whole new cycle in that new sign.

So for example, people who have natal planets or points at 29 degrees tend to have fairly dramatic experiences pertaining to those points and their characteristics.

Now, as I said, Pluto has been transiting Capricorn since the beginning of 2008, so roughly 15 years. And Pluto shifting signs is a big deal because it takes Pluto 248 years to orbit around the Sun. The transit of Pluto through Aquarius will be roughly 20 years.

This has been on my mind because I just have always sensed that this was a big deal. Pluto at 29 degrees is a big deal, but Pluto also shifting into Aquarius is a very big deal.

Now, the actual transition from Pluto and Capricorn into Pluto and Aquarius will occur starting in March right up through November of 2024, because Pluto will retrograde, or from our perspective appear to go backwards, several times between now and then. It’ll finally settle in into Aquarius more permanently in November of 2024 all the way through January of 2044.

So as I said this was on my list of things to talk about soon and then when I woke this morning I had had a very strong urge or impression intuitively to jump on it.

Now the last time Pluto was at 29 degrees of Capricorn was 1777 and 1778. That kind of puts it in perspective how big of a deal this is. And of course, what occurred around that time was the American Revolution. The American Revolution is conceivably one of the most important things that has happened geopolitically in human history. The rise of America has completely reshaped the world.

Pluto at 29 degrees Capricorn dates graphic

I’m not going to go into a lot of detail about this because I’ve done several episodes of Pluto transiting Aquarius and also the Pluto return of the United States, which has been going on for the past couple years, and it would be redundant for me to repeat all that. You can always just search my YouTube channel for the word Pluto, and it’ll bring up all those episodes.

But I do want to draw your attention to what’s occurring here now or about to occur in a couple weeks, because it’s very exciting. We are living in a very historic time when the seeds of very profound and far-reaching changes are being planted. We may not fully appreciate this point in history until we look back at it several generations from now possibly.

Now the way I perceive this is that I see this as a karmic reckoning, a comeuppance as it were.

Pluto in Capricorn has really been drawing our attention to how power has been concentrated in the hands of a few individuals. The plutocrats, that’s Pluto. As well as corporations and various government and institutional entities.

Dark money, dark power, the patriarchy, the oppression of the masses, corruption, reactionary and conservative forces, the whole concern around fascism and authoritarianism that we’ve been dealing with. Populism, voter suppression, crazy tax cuts for plutocrats, rampant and unhinged conspiracy theories, corruption in the judiciary being exposed, violent insurrections and coups, abuses of power, lying, cheating… You know, all that stuff we’ve been experiencing. These crazy abuses of power and literally off the charts kind of stuff.

Like if we look at the former American administration under 45, it’ll go down as one of the most insane and nuts administrations in US history, if not the most insane. And we have also seen tremendous wealth concentration in the hands of a few, literally a few tax-dodging billionaires.

So when Pluto gets to the final degrees of a sign, there tends to be a reckoning or comeuppance with respect to the issues that were being brought to our attention through the qualities of that sign. Think of it as a purge, not necessarily pleasant, but sometimes needed. And already we’ve been seeing a lot of people starting to be investigated and prosecuted and all kinds of underhanded crimes coming to light within the realms of power around the world. So watch for a lot of major developments in this time span.

The first ingress of Pluto in Aquarius will be from March 23rd until June 11th of 2023. This is really historic stuff.

You know, when Pluto first entered Capricorn, almost immediately we had the 2007-2008 financial crisis, which, if it had not been for significant intervention on the part of the US government, we would have gone into a global depression, the likes of which have not been seen since the 1930s. You know, that is historic.

We are now going to start seeing that energy come into Aquarius and culminate in Capricorn as I’ve been explaining. So just pay attention.

Ideally, like, I would love to just have lots of free time so I could just sort of sit and observe this period. And I’ll mention this as well, and I think I’ve said it before, but I have, you know, studied astrology for decades, and I have been saying for many, many years, I want to be here when Pluto goes into Aquarius. And that is two months from now. Finally.

Anyway, stay tuned, grab some popcorn, watch this shift of energy go from Earth to air, and all of these new issues are going to, things are going to change very quickly and dramatically. I’ve been putting some graphs on the screen which give you all the dates, and I’ll put a link to my Pluto and Aquarius episode there as well in the description of this episode so that you can check that out.

So this is a very exciting and dramatic time, and I’ve also been feeling this looming really big, deep energy of change that’s really kind of a little bit hard to pinpoint or decipher because we’re not quite in it. I’ve been feeling it energetically for several months now, but the fireworks have yet to begin.

So stay tuned and take care and I’ll talk to you soon.

USA Pluto Return 2022 – Civil War or Transformation? Part 1

I discuss the imminent and forthcoming exact Pluto returns in 2022 in the USA astrological natal chart and the widespread current discussion of the potential for civil war (often referred to as Civil War 2) amongst credible and noteworthy scholars, commentators and journalists.

Pluto takes (on average) 248 years to orbit the Sun – or to return to its natal position in the astrology horoscope – so this is a rare, potent and deeply powerful transit. The US has not experienced this transit before thus the year of 2022 will no doubt be epically historic for the US and the world. I also provide key dates to pay attention to.

Fasten your seatbelts as the first exact date of this transit occurs in February 2022!

Part 2 in this series can be viewed here.

This is a transcript of a an episode I published on my YouTube channel on January 10, 2022.

Episode transcript:

Welcome to Aquarian Diary where we discuss issues around the emerging Age of Aquarius.

I’m your host John Irving.

Thank you for joining me.

Hi guys. It is John here. It is Sunday, January 9, 2022.

I hope everyone had a good holiday season it was very busy around here, hence my absence, and I have certainly had a lot of time to reflect on a lot of things over the past number of weeks.

One of the main things I’ve been thinking about a lot is the USA Pluto return which is coming up soon to its first exact, which will be the first exact that is. When Pluto – transiting Pluto in orbit around the Sun – returns to the exact position it was at the founding of the United States. Which will be exact on February 20, 2022. That’s not very far away – six weeks or so.

Now one of the things so you know I have continued, because I do every day, I read I scan the press – at least those sources that I find to be reliable and rigorous – and one of the things that I have noticed in the past few weeks is the phenomenal number of articles by well-informed scholars, journalists and commentators questioning the possibility of a civil war in the United States. Whether… whether that is imminent or even possible.

Now one of the things that’s remarkable about this is the quality of the journalism or commentary on this subject. And if we think about this, and what is occurring, uh… if anybody had sort of even pondered this out loud – I don’t know 10 years ago or so – they would have people would have just laughed at them and said they were crazy. But the people who are questioning this right now are serious thinkers (chills right now).

So I find that this is occurring at this point in time to be extremely remarkable because of the astrology and also because of everything else that’s happening in the world. We have this global pandemic on a scale not seen in over 100 years.

Just to be clear this is occurring to the birth chart or the Sibley chart of the United States set around the Declaration of Independence. So although this is particular to the United States at this point in time It obviously would have a significant Impact on the whole world.

Now we have seen the polarization between sanity and insanity, and everything in between, reach unprecedented historic levels. This period of time, without question, will be noted significantly in the history books from a future perspective.

I want to talk about this because I have talked about the USA Pluto return before. And let me just also say that there are a ton of astrologers who have talked about this. And I’ve listened to a lot of that and what I’ve noted is that they don’t really necessarily go into a lot of particulars about… you know… how this will manifest. They just they speak about it in fairly general terms. But I think that if we look at what is occurring, and like I said, the degree to which this situation is being discussed and contemplated. Now even going to these extremes of, like I said civil war, and whether or not that’s possible I think that it has to be taken seriously.

Now I’m not actually suggesting or and i don’t necessarily believe that there will be a civil war. But i do think that what is going to occur this year in 2022 will involve a lot of the deepest and darkest aspects of the United States and its unresolved karma. And its unresolved psychological baggage – if you can refer to a country as being psychological – that that will be brought to the fore and dissected and put on display for all to see. And that is exactly what is occurring.

We have these extremely polarized factions who are engaging in unprecedented levels of hyperbole and beyond because… you know we did just celebrate the one year anniversary of the insurrection in Washington. So it has very real consequences.

And so the question is, you know, how will this stuff be addressed and will it or not and what will be the outcome. Now I personally think that this is like a major purging, like I said, of the deep and dark and unresolved aspects of the – again I’m going to refer to this country as having a psychology – but it does. I mean every every country has a character and qualities – almost like a personality. And a world view for sure, a paradigm that all of that is up for inspection. Whether It makes us comfortable or whether it’s desirable or not, because that’s kind of how Pluto operates.

Now let me give you some dates. This first came within a two degree orb and that’s – that’s when transiting Pluto’s was within two degrees of its natal position – commencing, you know, the first half of 2021. So it actually literally became within two degrees on February 12, 2021. It will be within two degrees until January 6 of 2024.

Now within that period of time there will be three exacts because Pluto will retrograde which will mean that it’ll cross its natal position. Pluto from our perspective will retrograde and it’ll be exact conjunct exact again on July 11th of 2022 retrograde, and make one more pass where it’ll hit direct on December 28th of 2022.

So this year – and we’re into it now because it was back within two degrees on December 19th of 2021. So from December 19th of 2021 right up until the end of 2022 Is the most intense period of this transit.

So the way these transits work is that they can be incredibly profound and deep and they’re big. You know Pluto transits when they make an aspect – a powerful aspect in your natal chart – can be a multi-year process. So whatever comes up and is brought to our awareness during this period of time could take years to resolve.

Now generally, as I’ve said before, if people are – or institutions or nations are – are in the flow of this energy they will do the work that they’re being called to do – the transformation will occur. Pretty or not, and they will evolve. Right? If there’s a lot of resistance to these energies they can sort of show up and manifest explosively because this energy needs to flow, whether we like it to or not.

So, again, three exacts this year. February 20th, July 11th and December 28th.

A lot of astrologers have talked about this and my own personal view is that it’s going to manifest just exactly as we’re seeing it. I would not be surprised, for example, if during this year an awful lot of dirt comes to the surface politically and socially that rocks the nation.

Things that will be brought to light that people will find shocking and deeply disturbing because that’s what Pluto will do. It’ll dredge things up from the subconscious or from the unconscious and bring it to your conscious awareness. And often it’s not pretty. It’s stuff that we usually prefer not to look at or address or think about. And I’m getting reinforcement energy here as i say this.

So now I think that for example the January 6 commission. Some other things could come to light that were done or activities that occurred during the Trump administration. It could even be treacherous, treasonous. Stuff that people will be find extremely shocking that will change the way Americans and the world see the country and perceive the country. So I would be prepared for some really disturbing things to come to light that could change people’s understanding of themselves and the nation. And it’s not likely to be nice.

So who knows how deep and how far the corruption goes but if it’s going to come to light it’ll be this year. And so I think that what people should do is brace themselves and it’ll be stuff, if it comes up, like it’ll make what happened during the Nixon impeachment probably look like a cake walk in comparison. This is probably going to be like really deep and really big and it’ll forever change the country. Now how far that goes we’ll see.

Now sort of from where we’re operating right now there’s a lot of people really in denial about, for example, January 6 and the whole Trump administration and everything. And a lot, I think, is going to depend on how they react to whatever is brought to light. That might actually cause them to second-guess or question their allegiance to Trump and to that administration or even the Republican party itself. It’s possible that the corruption could be so onerous that that loses a lot of steam. And then the question will then become what are we gonna do to fix this?

I don’t think you’re going to see the fixes in 2022. I think what we’re going to see in 2022 is the problems. So the problems will come to light and they’re going to be deep and they’re going to be significant. And then the fixes to that will probably take years.

So anyway I want to draw your attention to this because I think it’s really big. I mean the fact that this is occurring, like I said, during a global historic level pandemic is just mind-boggling.

So we’ll see how this plays out but I think that it’s going to be shocking probably and disturbing I would imagine what the repercussions of all that are going to be I think remain to be seen.

So heads up fasten your seat belts.

Also Saturn, on a mundane level, Saturn will square Uranus again at the end of the year. It’s an intense period.

My sense is that, you know, Omicron and the Coronavirus will probably settle down. I’m not saying It’s going to go away but I think it’ll be, you know, as people develop more immunity to it and it’s in a less severe variant right now. In terms of the effect that it has on people i think that it’ll be a little easier in that regard in 2022. But it’s not going to be gone. It’ll still be with us.

The main thing I wanted to draw your attention to was the Pluto return of the United States is going to be big this year. 2022 is probably going to blow our minds and for everybody, not just Americans, but the whole world. It’s going to be big and it’s going to be intense.

Now hopefully good comes from all of this you know like if stuff comes to light about corruption or treasonous activity or whatever it is – cheating, lying, deceiving, stealing – that kind of stuff. Abuses of power and privilege. The natal Pluto of the United States is in the second house and in addition to material matters the second house is often equated with material possessions and property and ownership but it also really covers values. Like things that you value. So that’s a very powerful place to have Pluto, in the second house. There’s a lot of power there and there’s a lot of potential for transformation.

So values, you know, the second house being ruled by Venus. The higher octave of Venus is pure unconditional love and the lower manifestations of that would be possessiveness and hoarding and trying to acquire material objects possessions and wealth.

So there has to be some kind of a financial component to whatever that’s gonna occur this year. And certainly it will relate to values and that’s already what we’re talking about. I mean the these values between the left and the right. Those who are dealing with reality and uh those who are living in a pseudo-reality that’s what this is all about. This huge debate that’s going on right now. So I find that very interesting.

Pay attention, 2022 will be a very big year.

There’s a number of other transits going on for the United States as well this year and each one of them is worthy of a significant discussion. But I’m just going to say that Neptune is squaring the Mars of the United States. Neptune is opposing the natal Neptune. Chiron is squaring the Sun. Chiron is opposing the natal Saturn. It’s too much to get into here because this would be way too long.

Another thing that I want to point out or just mention is that I find it that it’s extraordinary that this Pluto return of the United States, with the United States being the most dominant economic force on the planet, and culturally as well. And certainly very visible to the whole world, because the world reports and we’re all aware now especially with social media and whatnot, and the internet, about what’s going on in the United States. And so the whole world’s watching. This but I find it extraordinary that this is occurring. That this craziness that we’re seeing occurring to the most powerful nation on the planet, is occurring at this point in time where theoretically at least we’re supposed to be going through this great awakening. A degree of spiritual enlightenment is occurring on the planet. And that that we’re shifting into this Age of Aquarius. I find the timing of this is just absolutely extraordinary.

Astrologically I mean there’s just no question if we look at what’s going on – I mean with any degree of objectivity or perspective – astrologically this Pluto return is so obvious it to me at least as an astrologer. And I know it is for other astrologers as well. I don’t know if other people appreciate how significant this is and how coincidental it is with the timing. This is an extraordinary time.

You know it takes Pluto 248 years approximately to orbit the Sun. So we’re here at this point in time when this is occurring. Both this shift into the Age of Aquarius, and we’re witnessing this Pluto return in the United States, all sort of wondering how this is going to play out. Is the United States going to crumble or or dissolve in some way? Or descend into some kind of anarchy and civil war and even… and this speculation is occurring from within the nation itself. It’s not just me as an outsider observing this. There’s, like I said, very credible scholars, academics and journalists discussing this now openly. I find just the whole thing is so mind-blowingly extraordinary.

Let’s hope that it plays out well and that the United States goes through a period of meaningful reform that will set the stage for the next 248 years of history for this country. And that it doesn’t descend into darkness, chaos, anarchy and without the rule of law. And that it maintains its status as a democracy. Because that is within… that is in question legitimately at this point in time.

I’m underscoring how significant this is and for those of us who are aware and who are paying attention these are truly historic times. It’s going to be absolutely fascinating, if not nerve-wracking, to watch how this all unfolds. And i’ll leave it at that.

Pay attention, this is an amazing we’re… getting huge energy right now… to be here at this point in time in human history is just astonishing and and we’re very lucky to be here. And you know, I know why Spirit wants us to maintain a positive attitude because everybody is cheering for this to work out well. And at the same time though we can’t take our eye off the ball. And we can’t just go into denial because we we have to be paying attention because things could go in any direction. Sticking our head in the sand is not going to help.

So, fingers crossed. 2022 here we go.

I’ll talk to you again soon. And again thanks again to Kerry Erickson for the fantastic intro music he beautifully created for me.

The Astrology of Mass Delusion: 2011-2026

I discuss the astrological influences which are contributing to the current and disturbing levels of mass delusion and extremism which humanity has not experienced since the 1930’s.

This is a transcript of an episode of Aquarian Diary I published at 5:02am on June 21, 2023.

Episode transcript:

Greetings all, welcome to Aquarian Diary. I’m your host, John Irving. It is June 21, 2023.

Today I want to give people a general sense of when the insanity and all of the extreme and unhinged behavior we have been witnessing, socially and politically, will draw to a close, or at least begin winding down, as it often takes time for these forces to dissipate.

I’ll be displaying quite a few dates on the screen, you may want to watch this on YouTube if that matters to you.

On June 15th, I published an episode on the Uranus-Pluto square and the rise of far-right extremism, where I focused just on that one aspect and its parallels to the 1930s.

There’s another parallel which I didn’t specifically talk about in that episode, which is the transit of Uranus through Taurus.

Uranus transited Taurus from roughly 1934 until 1942, and is currently transiting Taurus again right now from 2018 through 2026.

The previous transit of Taurus occurred during the Great Depression, which ran from 1929 through 1939, it was ended by the war effort, and World War II, which commenced in 1939 through 1945.

Uranus is the modern ruler of Aquarius, or the 11th house.

Aquarius is fixed air. Taurus is ruled by Venus and is fixed earth.

These signs are in a square or antagonistic relationship to each other. Uranus is in its fall in Taurus. It’s a challenging sign for Uranus to be in. So these energies do not mix well. Uranus is all about change and revolution, and Taurus is all about security and predictability. So Uranus transiting Taurus is challenging.

All signs and planets have positive and negative expressions, and Taurus can be very conservative because it desires security, stability and predictability, and Uranus is anything but predictable.

Like I said, more recently, Uranus has been transiting Taurus since 2018 and will continue to do so through the end of April of 2026.

So we have seen a tremendous amount of change, revolution and instability around Taurian themes like real estate, property, money, investments, where people live, we went through lockdowns, where people were confined to their homes. Many people relocated, they moved from the city to the country or suburbs or even to other countries. People en masse began working from home… Taurus.

There were unprecedented supply chain disruptions, we’ve now been dealing with rapid inflation and greedflation, income disparity and the concentration of wealth in the hands of a few is even more extreme, and so on.

Taurus also rules what we value, so we have seen a tremendous amount of changes occurring around people’s values and a lot of conflicts around values like the culture wars.

Uranus can be quite radical, so we have seen the rise of reactionary conservatism to alarming degrees, such as far-right extremism, authoritarian and fascistic movements who want to impose radically conservative, patriarchal, and hierarchical structures on other people in many of the same ways we saw through 1934 and 1942. In that case, we had an actual World War. Extremely radical behavior and very polarizing social movements.

There are currently ultra-right and openly fascistic movements occurring in countries around the world. These forces are often anti-intellectual, they reject evidence and science, try and rewrite history, they attack and undermine the media, education systems and all manner of institutions, they are frequently misogynistic, racist, bigoted and xenophobic.

They define themselves based on their enemies and create them if they don’t exist. Fascists always need scapegoats, usually the most vulnerable members of society, such as trans children. What could possibly be more cowardly and despicable than picking on vulnerable children?

Propaganda and disinformation are frequently deployed, as are threats, bullying and intimidation.

As we can clearly see, there are many parallels between when Uranus transited Taurus in the late 1930s and early 1940s and recent years.

We have also had Neptune transiting Pisces from April 2011 which will continue through 2025 and 2026. Neptune is extra potent while transiting its own sign.

The lower expression of Neptune can be delusion/illusion/fantasy being detached from reality, escapism, alternative realities.

We have seen cult-like behavior where people have fallen under the spell of demagogues, con men, grifters, while being completely unable to perceive all of their flaws and there’s a lot of projection and illusion going on.

But that also will be wrapping up around 2025/2026, roughly around the same time that Uranus leaves Taurus.

So those are two really important things right there.

Again, check the screen for dates.

So Neptune, transiting Pisces, all of the mass delusion, rampant and observed conspiracy theories, the inability to distinguish truth from lies, willful, if not belligerent, ignorance, denial of facts, evidence, and reality, falling for lies and propaganda and shameless con man grifter criminals. Extreme expressions of victimhood, think Donald Trump or the incel movement, or people constantly whining about the crisis of privileged white male masculinity, being completely detached from objectifiable truth or reality, the post-truth era, all of that.

Uranus transiting Taurus, radical conservatism, radical traditional cultural values – so distorted that it’s almost grotesque, extreme resistance to progress or evolution, the rejection of historical facts pertaining to the oppression of minorities, various racial and ethnic groups, deference to authoritarian and strongman leaders, despite their highly flawed moral character and complete lack of credentials.

Neptune in Pisces and Uranus in Taurus at the same time?

The United States has been the focal point of a lot of the absolute batshit crazy stuff because it has been going through its Pluto return – which I have also done episodes on – from February 2021 and will continue through January of 2024, which is when it was within a tight two degree orb.

Pluto transits are actually in effect for a wider orb than that. That is just the most intense phase. But the most intense phase will be winding down by early next year.

There has been a lot of crazy stuff going on, but there’s no question that the United States has been the focal point globally for the insanity. Just look at how radical and extreme and crazy the Republican Party and the former president and his hapless sycophants have been acting, many of whom may end up incarcerated.

In 2025-2026, Saturn will move into Aries, beginning a whole new 28-29 year cycle. This all points to 2025-2026 as being the end of the post-truth, batshit crazy era.

As much as the reactionary conservative forces are trying to put the genie back in the bottle, you cannot resist these major transits of, like, Pluto shifting into Aquarius, Neptune moving out Pisces, Uranus moving out of Taurus.

If you are in resistance to these outer planetary energies, the transits manifest as being extremely challenging and disruptive. You cannot be in resistance to these energies, they are much more powerful than you are as an individual. So the more liberal or more progressive forces are in a much better position to deal with these changing and shifting energies because they are more comfortable with change and evolution, they are more adaptable and open-minded.

When Uranus moves into Gemini in 2025-2026, it will be in a trine aspect to the sign of Aquarius, where Pluto is beginning its major 20-year long transit. This is power, Pluto, in very harmonious, easy-flowing aspect to Uranus in Gemini.

Again, Aquarius, which Uranus rules, is fixed air, Gemini is mutable air. So that relationship, when Uranus enters Gemini, commencing in 2025 and 2026, speaks of very rapid change and evolution in an air sign. Air signs are intellectual and rational. They are very fast moving energies. These are not slow energies. And like I said, that is a trine aspect that will occur for about seven years.

Again, it all points to 2025, 2026 being the end of the post-truth, bat-shit-crazy, reactionary conservative period with this insane polarization. All of the complete detachment from reality on the political right drawing to a close. So that’s the time frame. We have another two to three years of craziness to go through.

Although, as I’ve said in other episodes, Saturn transiting Pisces is a reality check and Pluto transiting Aquarius is also a reality check in many ways.

So the tide has started to turn, but we should be completely out of all of this craziness in 2025 and 2026. At least the kind of craziness we’re dealing with now.

I have been focusing here on all of the negative expressions of these energies. It goes without saying that the opposite is true as well. In fact, the majority of the people have not been expressing the negative aspects of these things. There are still many people who are very grounded in reality and who are able to differentiate between BS and reality.

So without question, it is clear that these energies are experienced differently depending on the person. Now why some people are predisposed to the negative expressions and others are not probably relates a lot to their own particular astrological natal chart.

And there are many people in the middle who aren’t quite sure where they stand. But for the purposes of this episode, I am just trying to explain why so many people are going crazy and how long it will last, and when it will mercifully end.

Finally, let’s be clear about one important thing. The dark side lies, manipulates, deceives, and engages in criminal activity. The light does not lie, cheat, or steal, just to be clear.

And yes, I am proudly biased in favor of truth and reality.

I understand that much of what’s happening is fueled by grievance, but the answer is not to burn the place down.

It’s funny, when I’m editing this audio, I often stop and think “Oh, I’m being hyperbolic.” and I’ll reflect for a moment, and only a moment, before I realize that I can provide credible examples of what I’m describing, things that have actually happened or are happening right now. I’m not being hyperbolic, this is all actually happening just as I’m describing it. In other words, it really is this bad, currently.

For a fuller and more detailed analysis, I will link multiple other episodes that are related in the episode description, which I encourage you to review.

I’m going to share a few podcasts simply as a public service.

The first is my favorite, and I’ve mentioned it here before. It is Background Briefing with Ian Masters.

I listen to this podcast every day. As far as I’m concerned, this is the best podcast. One of the most amazing things about it is that there’s nothing else like it, and I find that hard to believe. God knows what we’ll do when Ian Masters retires.

The second is a new podcast by the BBC. It is called Mariana in Conspiracyland.

One of the most disturbing things about this podcast is she documents how many people who would have been traditionally progressive are falling into the right wing rabbit hole as a result of conspiracy theories. Anyway, it’s new, check it out.

I personally find it very interesting. It makes me think about the phenomenon of the RFK campaign in the United States. He is being promoted by many libertarian right-wing nut jobs and has the potential to siphon off absolutely critical votes that could help prevent the Republicans from winning the next election. The Republicans winning would be one of the worst possible things that could happen.

Even people in the progressive community are falling under the spell of propaganda, lies and disinformation, and even overtly and transparently racist ones.

It has eerie parallels with the whole MAGA movement and QAnon and things like that. Which to me seems to be a psyop campaign, like something the Russians would do.

I find that quite disturbing. It’s like some kind of weird mind virus, like a mental illness that is being spread around. It’s very creepy and dark.

Many of us have lost people or even loved ones to conspiracy theories. It can be heartbreaking.

The dark side can be very subtle and devious. We need to be constantly vigilant to inoculate us against its poison.

Conspirituality is another podcast in the same vein. It’s intellectually rigorous and does not pull any punches. So set your ego aside.

Another podcast I have been listening to now for quite some time is The Bulwark with Charlie Sykes.

This is coming from a never Trump perspective. So it’s quite unusual for me to listen to something like this, but the quality of the analysis around what’s going on with Republicans and the former guy is very good and very intelligent. So it gives a different perspective than what I normally would listen to.

I subscribe to many, many podcasts, but those are a few that I thought would be relevant to this episode.

I’ll put links in the episode description to any related content and if you’re interested in a reading with me, I’ll put a link to that as well.

Many sincere thanks to everyone who supports me, especially my YouTube members. Thank you very much.

Take care, all the best, and I’ll talk to you again soon.

Bye for now.
