Looking back, on 8 Jan 1990, Saturn made a conjunction to the Sun – a time for the leadership of the ANC to step up, taking on new responsibilities. A month later on 2 Feb 1990 the ANC was unbanned by FW de Klerk. It sure was a time for the ANC to play a much more significant role in the leadership and direction of SA.
Fast forward to 2019 and Saturn is once again conjunct the Sun in the ANC chart. A full cycle has completed – 29 year Saturn cycle. It is an important time to look at the roles and responsibilities of the ANC leadership. This is significant as once again it requires the leadership to be disciplined in fulfilling their duties and responsibilities. It is a time to grow up, take charge, make important long term decisions and show leadership, thereafter earning the respect of others. This period is active from Feb to Nov 2019.
In addition there is a very difficult transit affecting the chart of the ANC – Pluto opposed Neptune – March 2019 to Nov 2020. This is going to be a very difficult time for the ANC as it gets to the bottom of all the illicit activities that have been going on within the organisation. Pluto demands that these allegations be investigated thoroughly. It is a time where the ANC needs to purge those involved in illicit activities and deal with matters that have been swept under the carpet. This is not going to be an easy process but is absolutely necessary for renewal. Strong leadership will be incredibly important at this time.
From March to Dec 2020, Saturn will make a conjunction to Uranus in the ANC chart. This last happened on 26 Jan 1991 after the ANC was unbanned in early 1990. This will once again be a time when we are likely to see the emergence of something new within the ANC. It describes that there will be a clash of the traditional versus more modern/innovative/revolutionary values and ideas. It speaks about a time of renewal if undertaken in a responsible, methodical and structured manner. It is likely to be rocky and unstable during this period of transition. Hopefully after this time they have rid the organisation of the corrupt and rotten members of the party and can move forward on a new trajectory.
The chart of South Africa has the Sun at 6 degrees Taurus. Uranus is currently moving through the sign of Taurus. This is a time where change is disruptive and unpredictable. The sun in a chart refers to the leadership of the country and this indicates that big changes are necessary. It describes that these times will be rocky and turbulent but could also be exciting if we embrace a new direction. We will need to be bold and innovative.
We do need to clean out the rot and this is not going to be a pleasant process. The SA chart describes that for the next 3 years from 2020 to 2022 we have to embark on a major clean out and those responsible for corruption need to be sent to jail.
From Jul 2023 to April 2024 things will shift significantly. Do we have a woman in the presidency? The public will have had enough and demand significant change. The public service will need to be changed fundamentally. This is not going to be easy. Transformed into a public service – truly at service to the people of SA?
