The astrology of Inauguration January 2021 presents a certain set of challenges. For one thing, it will be a major transition in the White House with Trump exiting stage right. As the Biden Administration steps forward, it offers fresh winds of change from the arduous previous four years and especially of the last twelve months. Lets not fool ourselves though, while the figures in the front may change periodically, it’s the forces behind it all that have hardly changed at all.
I have a chart to describe for the Biden Administration, and if it’s anything like the chart of the Trump Administration (quite accurate, that is) then there is a story to tell indeed. Stay tuned to SWN for that.
The real pressure point for January 2021 astrologically is mid-month as we move through a series of hard and difficult configurations, some peaking right as Biden/Harris take the stage, hands on the Bible. The loud one may feel enough agitation to shake the scene yet still, not going quietly away.
Over January 13-14 Mars squares Saturn and Uranus makes a direct station widely in square to Saturn and conjunct Mars. That is about a 8.5 on the astrology Richter scale (I just made that up) out of 10. Remember that all things are interconnected. Internal agitation contributes to external agitation. The elements themselves become mirrors of our consciousness. So, stay calm and serenely focused on your objectives, much change can be effected.
On January 20, Inauguration Day, Saturn makes semisquare to Neptune. Anxiety meets confusion and dysfunction. Not exactly a good thing for the passing of the torch to a new presidential administration. More on this in a subsequent article.
