Election Day USA – considerations – 2016 vs 2020 – A few things to consider looking at back 2016 USA election day transits and those for 2020
( just using Noon Charts and zero Aries, only noting conjunctions, squares, oppositions and significant trines)
It’s interesting to see that quite a few things are opposite what they were in 2016. By comparing the 2 charts and what all the planets are and were doing, and how they aspect the natal charts of candidates, I see quite clearly a reversal of fortune, of what transpired 4 years ago.

With life on Earth is under threat from a range of human activities, we are about to enter an epoch of social revolution that will shake the foundations of the global community. Michele Finey explores the history, themes and symbols of this epic transit to reveal how Pluto in Aquarius will reshape our future.

The Pluto-Neptune conjunction of 1892 at 7 degrees of Gemini coincided with the beginning of the modern era. The 19th century could arguably be termed the century when everything changed, and the modern era began. The political and social structure fractured, as monarchies collapsed. Philosophical and scientific breakthroughs reflected the dynamic new thinking as a revolution in communication and transportation occurred. The vision (Neptune) of power (Pluto) shifted, transformed and changed radically.

From the moment we are born, we are learning about ourselves in many different ways. The majority of people don’t know much more about themselves than what they learn in school. Traditional schools teach us a little bit about our body functionality, a bit of chemistry, a bit of basic physics, some basic psychology and a few other things to assist us to get by in life. These schools do not have anything in their curriculum remotely related to the study of humans that goes beyond the physical body or beyond what we are ‘permitted’ to learn.

Most certainly we are on the brink, the edge, a burning off of the past, a shift not only into a new decade, but also into a new mindset and an overhauled system to follow. How quickly this will occur is hard to tell. Demanding signals have been sent to us over the course of 2019, with the building Capricorn markers, Pluto, Saturn and the South Node. We step into 2020 with a grand stellium forming, with Saturn, Pluto, Ceres, Sun and Mercury all in a hard square aspect to the Goddess of Discord and Chaos, new dwarf planet Eris. This is all happening during an eclipse season on the Capricorn and Cancer polarity, representative of our global safety and security.

Saturn will be entering into Aquarius in March 2020, retrograde back to Capricorn on 2 July and move back to Aquarius on 17 December, a few days before a new Jupiter-Saturn cycle is formed. Saturn will dip back and forth between the signs that represent the old and the new, creating a reflection on what we need to leave behind and what will be kept when we journey toward new potential.

2020  marks the opening of a new world era signified by rare outer planetary alignments. It is a significant year that  requires a new set of rules and assumptions about time and reality along with new approaches to leadership, governance, care for the environment and serious visions for the future. 2020 presents a turning point where the implications of ‘modern living’ have become very real and personal. On a socio-political level, it signifies the peak of autocratic rule while a shift to movements that support the common good will increasingly gain importance by the end of 2020.
