Solar Eclipse in Taurus 2022 in Conjunction with Uranus

Reading Time : 6 minutes

So far, 2022 has been a very eventful year. It started with the appearance of a comet, which is always a sign of upcoming challenges for humanity. In addition, the first months of the year were marked by two stelliums in Capricorn. They brought both a feeling of heaviness and a prolonged cold season.

Yes, the balancing forces of Jupiter in Pisces have been inspiring us with the spiritual virtue of compassion. But that has mainly focused on the terrible war in Ukraine.

And now eclipse season is coming, a time of the year when karmic forces of change are released. Season one starts with a Partial Solar Eclipse in Taurus, which is a new moon. Immediately followed by a Total Lunar Eclipse in Scorpio, the full Moon of the same lunation.

This means that May is going to be an extremely dense month. Not only the two main phases of the lunation, new moon and full moon, are going to be eclipses. But we’re also going to have Jupiter’s ingress in Aries on May 11th, and Mercury Retrograde between Gemini and Taurus.

As we’ve said in the Astrology of 2022, this year focuses mainly on both the Air and Earth Elements. And all this emphasis on Taurus is now going to inevitably involve Uranus.

The Jupiter-Neptune Conjunction 2022 — Beginning of a New Spiritual Cycle

Reading Time : 4 minutes

Much has been said about Jupiter in Pisces after the war broke out in Ukraine. How is it possible for such horrible things to happen during a benefic transit like that?

Jupiter is the so called Great Benefic, and in Pisces it’s in his domicile. This means that his influence is remarkably strong. So it’s perfectly normal to argue that under his wings humanity should feel safe and not on the edge of World War III.

We spoke favorably about it too, describing it as the Great Cosmic Harmonizer in this post. And we do not intend to take that back—the influence of Jupiter is certainly beneficial. So why is this horrendous scenario taking place?

The first thing that I’d like to highlight is that things could have been much worse. In general we tend to focus on bad things because they always come with drama. They get our attention easily, and media speculate on it.

The Russian-Ukraine Crisis — USA Economic War against Russia

Reading Time : 6 minutes

In the previous post we discussed about the natal chart of Russia. We saw the very interesting relationship existing between Putin’s Pluto, the ascendant and descendant of Russia, and the Moon of Ukraine. We also pointed out the role of Saturn, as the transiting planet activating this set of relations.

The Russian-Ukraine Crisis — The Shadow of the Russian Government

Reading Time : 5 minutes

In the previous post we discussed about the natal chart of Ukraine. We tried to understand from an astrological perspective the struggle of this country to find its own identity, after the dissolution of the Soviet Union. We also particularly focused on the Moon, as the representative of the Ukrainian people.

In this article we are going to talk about the natal chart of Russia. We will try to understand what are the deep reasons dwelling in the Russian folk-soul that led to the current situation. And we are also going to highlight a very interesting relationship between Putin’s Pluto, the ascendant-descendant of Russia and the Moon of Ukraine.

Please note that there doesn’t seem to be a unique opinion among astrologers regarding the chart of the Russian Federation. This makes things even more difficult to grasp, so I invite you to take this article just as a possible astrological contribution on the matter. Again, I am not a geopolitical expert.

The Russian-Ukraine Crisis — Failure of an Individuation Process

Reading Time : 7 minutes

War is always a failure. We are all shocked about what’s happening in Ukraine those days. Our thoughts and prayers goes to the souls of the fallen and their families. May the spiritual world welcome them with love.

I am not a geopolitics expert. As an astrologer, what I can do to make a deeper sense out of what’s happening in Europe is to look—as always—at the sky. This article is meant to be a humble contribution in this sense.

As you can imagine, in order to understand what’s happening we need to look at the Natal Chart of Ukraine. By doing so, we’ll get to know a little bit better this country as a spiritual being. Understanding the potential of the chart, we’re going to be able to recognize how it’s been triggered these days, as well as in the recent past.

The Celestial Lovers of 2022 — The Long Conjunction of Venus and Mars

Reading Time : 5 minutes

Male and female, hot and cold, war and love. Among the planets, no couple represents complementary forces better than Venus and Mars. Not only because together they describe the Archetype at the very foundation of will and desire. But especially because we all experience in life the struggle that inevitably derives from their union.

Frans Wouters (Rubens School) — venus and mars

I don’t usually talk about Venus and Mars, and for a very simple reason. Their aspects are usually very quick, and it doesn’t make much sense to talk about their influence. But this is not always the case.

Sometimes Venus, which is usually quicker than mars, slows down. To the point that Mars is capable of accompany her in the sky for an unusually long period of time. In this article we are going to talk about their long conjunction through Capricorn and Aquarius.
