(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.
Initial Conclusion: The planet Chiron (the planet of something wrong) appears to activate the US Third house, where the US Moon (the people) resides and the cusp of the US Fourth house (the house of endings.)
That’s pretty stunning. That’s more than greater than chance. But is it a co-incidence? To check this I took the total list of US epidemics (from 1721 on) from Wikipedia and checked the position of Chiron in each. This is about as complete a data set as you construct. This chart is the result.
Conclusion: Chiron’s transit of the US Third House or Fourth House cusp is a signal of a major infectious event.
