Update on the 2021 Inauguration and the events leading up to it.
The Capitol Insurrection
On January 6, around 3:30, I posted this on my Facebook page:
The run-up to the 2021 Inauguration promises to be dicey AF, as Mars activates– for the first time– the Saturn-Uranus square that is one of the predominant influences in 2021.
Where we are: an unpredictable (Uranus) madman entrenched, relentless, and holding on for dear life (Taurus), challenged by authorities outside his control (Saturn in Aquarius).
I know there is a lot of talk about the upcoming Mars transits showing further violence and insurgency. That may well prove to be true, but I have another take.
The Inauguration Chart
The 2021 inauguration takes place near the tail end of this rare astrological 💩 storm.
One of the key houses it activates in the chart of the USA is the 2nd house, representing our financial systems and our core values. At its best, this will stir the pot and activate needed reforms to systems of banking, finance, and revenues. It will also free up much-needed cash for those who are struggling to pay rent and put food on the table as the pandemic continues to surge. At its worst, Saturn square Uranus throughout 2021 reflects the very real threat of cyber-warfare, especially on our banking and financial systems.
The other house getting the juice is the 5th– our leaders, our entertainers, sports, children. Leaders who act like children. Jupiter and Saturn are on the nation’s South Node calling on us– among other things– to learn from past mistakes and let go of beliefs and dogmas that are no longer valid. (We’re seeing this in the removal of Confederate monuments throughout the South and even in the Capitol.) To me, this aspect reflects the challenge of living in a society where beliefs (Jupiter) and objective facts (Aquarius) are so badly out of tune with one another that we tend to live in separate realities.
Trump’s birth chart and the 2021 Inauguration
Trump’s chart shows that on January 6, he was at the very end of a major power period. With transit Mars at 29° Aries lined up in harmony with his birth chart Mars in Leo and his 29° Leo Ascendant, the scuttlebutt is that he thoroughly enjoyed the whole seditious event. I believe that rumor is likely true. But I think the party’s over for Trump. Mars’ entry into Taurus does not do him many favors. He’s done. But he’ll probably break as many bottles as he can on the way out the door.
I believe the charts show that the tables are turning on Trump. The inauguration Mars-Uranus conjunction falls in Trump’s 9th house– legal matters. Saturn just recently moved into his 6th house, showing issues with his circulation and general health challenges. As Uranus works through the end of his 9th house of legal matters and approaches the very public Midheaven over the next several years, more and more shocking (but perhaps not surprising) truths will come to light. The Saturn-Uranus square continues to pressure him from his 9th and 6th houses throughout 2021.
One saving grace in the Inauguration chart is the Moon’s North Node passing over his Uranus, the planet of freedom, liberation. Does this mean he resigns and Pence pardons him? If so, does that save him from further legal trouble? Or does this reflect liberation from his responsibilities, as the 10th house suggests? Or will he liberate himself by fleeing the country, as the 9th house (foreign countries) action suggests?
Will there be more seditious activity from Trump’s insurgents? Maybe– but overall, Saturn’s call to order has more strength than Uranus’ chaos engine now. There will be a fight, but law and order win out over insurgency this time.
I have been wrong about Trump before. I could be wrong now. But I don’t see a win for him.
Biden’s birth chart and the 2021 Inauguration
One of the most interesting features in this Inauguration chart is the Void of Course Moon at 29° Aries. The Moon, the emotional barometer, occupies the exact position where Mars (violence) was in the January 6 Capitol insurrection. When the Moon is VOC, the mood tends to be disconnected and a bit “floaty.” But the inauguration chart Moon still harmonizes closely with the USA chart Moon, representing the nation’s people.
This 29° Aries Moon also nearly exactly conjoins Joe Biden’s Moon– just over the line at 00° Taurus. That’s why, despite the chaos baked into the soup on Inauguration Day, I think Joe Biden will meet the moment with his characteristic empathy. I think you’ll feel the temperature shift as soon as he begins to speak. With some notable exceptions, most Americans will feel a lot more comfortable, safe, and “at home” (Moon) with President Biden sworn into office at long last.
Another encouraging sign is the Sun, Saturn, and Jupiter in the inauguration chart all lined up in harmony with Biden’s Ascendant. Saturn lends its stability and gravitas to Biden’s presence and message. His presidency will be off to a pretty good start, despite the obvious dangers and challenges of the moment.
