I just wanted to clarify my previous article on the Jupiter-Saturn conjunction. As I have discussed, Jupiter and Saturn are moving towards a conjunction, which becomes exact on December 21 2020. The world is moving towards recession and depression. It would have happened without COVID-19, but the virus accelerated the pace.
Jupiter and Saturn are important planets when considering the business cycle, because they embody the principles of expansion and contraction. From the Earth’s perspective, there are periods in their orbit where they go backwards, and this means that their angle of separation doesn’t move in a straight line. From the perspective of 2020, the year started with Jupiter and Saturn moving steadly towards the conjunction, and on May 19 they reached their peak closeness, at 4.68 degrees. This was a local minima, and from May 19 the planets started moving further apart. We can therefore see the period from January 1 to May 19 as being the first phase of the disaster, with the world and its economy moving to the brink.
From May 19 to August 30 Jupiter and Saturn are moving apart. In many quarters there is a feeling of relief, that the world is now recovering. This particularly applies to the markets, but people in general are thinking that they can get back to work, as the situation normalizes. However, it’s a zone of false optimism. After August 30 Jupiter and Saturn move rapidly towards their December 21 conjunction. It is at this stage that it becomes clear that there is no recovery, regardless of COVID, and that we need to prepare for the absolute worst. And after December 21 we’ll start to discover what the absolute worst really is.
