Scorpio 2020/21 year ahead

The big focus in this chart is your relationship – personal and or business. This is not an easy period. There are issues to resolve – are you emotionally supported in your relationship? Do you support your partner from an emotional perspective? What fundamentally needs to change? The theme is letting go. It is important to manage your joint financial resources – this includes matters of debt and taxation. Your joint financial matters need to reflect circumstances that suit long term planning. A working partnership looks particularly challenging.


What legal matters need attending at this time? This is a very good time to be decisive. Has your relationship (personal and or business) run its course? Can it fundamentally shift and evolve?

How do you deal with significant loss or trauma? How does your partner cope? What about your work and daily routine? How does this impact on your relationship?


Home and family is a focus. There is tension in chart between career and personal goals and career objectives. It is a good time to look at a radical change in direction. Find a new business or career opportunity. Be bold and take a risk. Look at ways of managing your personal and shared resources. There are some sticking points that need to be resolved.

Would you like to move further a field – perhaps abroad? Is this legally possible and what financial position do you need to be in to make this happen?

Covid-19 and its impact globally and here is SA

Jupiter conjunct Pluto – this conjunction started on 29 Feb 2020 and ends on 12 Nov 2020. It is exact on 5 April, 30 June and 12 Nov 2020. These dates may become important in this pandemic and with regards the lockdowns.


These planets were last conjunct between 16 Nov 2007 and 5 Jan 2008. The global financial crisis of Dec 2007 to June 2009 which started with the subprime mortgage crisis. It was followed by a period of extended recession – Great Recession between 2012 and 2015.


As I have mentioned before Pluto is associated with the following – atomic bombs, assassinations, bacteria, betrayal, catastrophes, cemeteries, coffins, convicts, crematories, crime, death, decay, decomposition, defiance, demolition, destitution, devastation, dictators, disasters, epidemics, evacuation, executions, extremism, filth, gangsters, garbage, mortality, murder, obituaries, plagues, plutonium, poison, pornography, procreation, prostitution, purging, rape, rodents, rotting, rubbish, sewage, suicides, swamps and bogs, taxation, tyrants, victims, viruses, volcanoes and wars.


Jupiter will magnify these problems. Jupiter is fallen in Capricorn – this creates further problems. Jupiter is not comfortable in this sign. With respect to the Covid-19 virus we must expect the death toll to rise and the cases to increase. Debt problems will escalate post the shut-down here in SA and globally. Those with debt problems prior to this crisis will find themselves in very difficult circumstances. The ripple effect across the economy will multiply exponentially – just like the Covid-19 cases. That is why it is so important for us to flatten the curve so that the health professionals can cope and not become overwhelmed. But there are consequences to extended lockdowns and those are economic. Businesses will find themselves drowning in debt – no income and certain unavoidable expenses. They may very well be forced to close which will increase the number of individuals who find themselves without employment. The impact of lockdown is likely to be extremely severe. This process only completes towards mid to end November.


Government will realise it has a massive fiscal deficit. With businesses not able to trade and generate income, the government will feel the effects of less tax revenue. The government will need to provide financial support for all entities and individuals post shut-down. It is going to be a massive undertaking for everyone.


We can’t take our eye off the ball currently – these are unprecedented times. We need to find sustainable solutions collectively.

What to do when Mercury is retrograde?

October 14 to November 3WHAT TO DO WHEN MERCURY IS RETROGRADE?

The planet Mercury rules communication, travel, contracts and motor cars/modes of transport. So, when Mercury is retrograde, remain flexible, allow extra time for travel, and avoid signing contracts. Double check your email responses, check in with reservations before you take that trip. Review projects and plans at these times, perhaps wait until Mercury is direct again to make any final decisions. You can’t stop your life, but plan ahead, have back-up plans, and be prepared for angrier people and misunderstandings.

This Mercury retrograde happens in Scorpio/Libra. At the start Mercury is opposed Uranus – we must expect some volatile interactions. Be prepared for the unexpected. Towards the end of October, Mercury squares Jupiter and Saturn. This implies there will be consequences for decisions taken. It will be interesting to watch the various business rescue scenarios during this period. Outcomes that stick may be tricky.
