As a forensic astrology technique, I often put the event chart in the center and the person’s chart in the outer ring. The Sun, according to Rex Bills in The Rulership Book represents the President, along with the 10th house and the zodiac sign Leo. Trump’s Chiron, “the planet of something wrong,” and Trump’s Jupiter (the king) sits on the ascendant of the event chart. The ascendant is dawn, the first rays of the sun shining at the beginning of the day. Trump’s Neptune (the planet of infections) buries itself further into the twelfth house of secrets. It is in opposition to the day’s Chiron in the sixth house of health. Chiron is in Aries, which is ruled by the planet Mars, the planet of trouble. The president is, indeed, “not out of the woods.”
(Astrology Explored) I spend way too much time on Quora. From time to time a card-carrying skeptic wanders over to one of my responses and throws the “astrology is rubbish” spear, and of course I reply. After one such heated debate the skeptic got down and dirty. “Taking a current example, can you name ANY astrologer (or “psychic” for that matter) who predicted the corona outbreak and could say how serious it would be? NO, YOU CANNOT, because NO ONE EVER DID!”
Well, I guess he showed me.
Prediction is not an easy job, especially in astrology, because it requires hours of research, and most of us astrologers, not all, but most, don’t earn our main incomes from astrology. It requires digging up data, studying charts and putting together the date sets that proves or disproves our theses.
THESIS: There is an astrological pattern that repeats with enough regularity that reliably predicts infectious disease within a nation.
We do not have a horoscope of the world. Mother Earth, being a wise woman, is not telling us her age, though we make guesses, so as a result, we do not have her birthdate. But what we do have are the birth dates of nations, and these dates you can use to study the transits of events.
I use the Sibly Chart of the United States. It’s worked for me reasonably well in the past, so it’s my go-to despite the plethora of other charts advanced by other astrologers.
METHOD: I inspected the charts of three different major epidemics in the United States, The Spanish Flu Pandemic, The Swine Flu Pandemic and the Covid-19 Pandemic. I used the date of the official first report, if I could find it, or the first day of the month listed, and used sunrise as the time. While we can’t use the moon position, the other planetary positions placed within the houses of the US Chart are accurate enough for analysis.
