Kris: Good Afternoon. Today with us is Margarita Ivanova, known as Gita, astrologer with 25 years of experience. Today, we are witness to a lot of changes in the world and in the states. Can you tell use what are the major planets that influence these changes? What is going on in the sky during 2020? You wrote many times in your yearly horoscopes, as well as in your monthly forecast, that 2020 is going to be Year of Breakthroughs, Transformation and Healing
Gita: To begin, I would like to talk about Pluto entering Capricorn in January 2008 and staying here until March 2023. During this time, we will see the end of the process of changes, eliminations, and transformations that I am talking. Pluto rules Scorpio, connected with underworld secrets, lies, corruption, manipulation, control and depression, due to isolation and fears. The conjunction of Pluto with Saturn by January 12, 2020 was the pick of this major crisis to bring society changing cataclysm, a death of the old structure and a time of serious failing of the systems, which will bring a permanent damage to the current establishment. This cannot continue any more. It is time for a deep transformation of the current establishment ( Saturn rules government, establishment and foundations). What we are witnessing today is mass protests, strikes and economic collapse. We are struggling due to Covid-19 economy shut down, fears of death, isolation and social distancing, all caused by the selfishness of the elitists and their corrupted actions. We see oppositions from the people behind the curtains who try to pull the strings and manipulate the whole world.
This is a time of transformation when the immoralities in the established system reveals the truth and we realize that these institutions that we trusted and believe do not provide protection. They are not our friends and they are not working to benefit us. We see past secrets and lies unveiled as well as corruption and greed. We now have a powerful urge to eliminate and discard everything that is corrupt and deceitful. We want to expose the truth and to see these skeletons hiding in the elites closets. Pluto’s activities are open and seen now and we are at the beginning of a new realm where new leadership is coming to help us and to rebuild a new and better world.
Most years we usually have no more than four eclipses. In 2020, we are going to see six eclipses. We expect that a greater number of eclipses occurs in years to bring many changes and define the development of events for many years to come.
The year 2020 will be a defining year for humanity. It is a year that represents and summarizes the past and the establishment of a new direction.
2020 can roughly be divided into two very different periods. The first half of the year from January to June will be a relatively calm time when many of us will be successful in realizing our dreams, and creating tangible plans for our future.
The second half of the year from June to the end of December will be much more difficult as the planet Mars will come closer to Earth in the sign of Aries, where it is incredibly powerful. Mars is the planet of war. Mars will be in the fire sign of Aries from June 29 to January 06.2021.
The most unsettled period will be during the fall when Mars will retrograde in Aries from September 10 to November 14, 2020.
With all this in mind, it is natural that this should be a turbulent time. Old economic and political systems will continue to break down.
The peak of wars between supporters of the old and the new will culminate in the second half of 2020, from July to December.
The period between August and October, we may witness a huge, global economic crisis that will affect all countries throughout the world.
Kris: Tell us more about the eclipses in 2020?
Gita: There are two nodes in Astrology – the north and south node. The north node is tied to our life’s direction and the purpose behind this life, while the south node defines a past life and what we need to stay away from during this life. The south node supplies information like talents, knowledge, and experiences that we can use during this life. What we learned that comes from south node is that the past seems natural to us. But we came to this world to fulfill our purpose and to follow the North node. The North node is represented by the Sun and Jupiter, the south node by Saturn, our karma and past life.
In June/July we are going to see the last two eclipses in the group of Cancer/Capricorn. Then, on June 5, the first eclipse, a full moon eclipse in 14 degrees of Sagittarius. The eclipses will take place during the next two years in Gemini & Sagittarius. As we talk about past life, we use the same strategy in astrology, we go back 18-19 years ago, at a time when the south node was in Sagittarius again. If you remember September 11, 2001, you know what happen then and how long it took to overcome this crisis.
This south node in Sagittarius can be taken in two ways: one of decay and disintegration, another one of creative expression and self-development. To be part of the second group, it’s necessary to do a lot of work. Most of all, it’s important to get rid of all the patterns and the values that are no longer useful in life, and open space for new truth, a new way of seeing the world.
Looking through the astrological chart, Sagittarius takes place in the 9 house that rules higher education, our connection with the world, international relationships and affairs. Gemini and Mercury rule communication, short courses of education, short traveling, transportation and our community. These will be the areas that will be most inclined for changes. Also, transformation, finding new innovative solutions to old problems, new ways of learning and traveling.
KRIS: How long would it take for the economy in US to recover?
GITA: As I mentioned before, this year is not promising, as the old system is not going to give up easily, we can see fighting, protest, demonstrations and fires. It can be due to corona virus or some other sort of conflict. This will increase in the fall and this is going to influence the economy. Instead of going up, the economy will sharply decline.
In the solar chart of USA, Saturn takes place in the second house of money and value system. We all need to plan everything very carefully, to be economical. No more waste, we need to count every penny we spend. We must learn new ways of saving and living with less, Saturn requires us to be conservative. Some people have tendency to be big spenders but that type of behavior muse be controlled the rest of this year and well into 2021. We must reevaluate our lives, our spending, and our basic needs for survival.
The good news is that at the end of December, Jupiter will meet Saturn in the same house of money and with Jupiter that may bring new opportunities with new jobs, new technologies, new discoveries, new leaders to the world that are innovative and humanitarian. Many might have a chance to find their true talents and to start to work on their own company. Then, slowly we can start to rebuild what we have lost in 2020. Again, slowly, having Saturn’s rules and restrictions. This is the time, when we will actually see the beginning of the new era- the Aquarius era, as both Jupiter and Saturn will be in Aquarius by the end of December 2020 and during entire 2021.
I want to inform all of you to be prepared for the crises, for fires, for revolutions, demonstration, earth quicks, flooding, and tidal waves that may take many lives and damage many houses during the second part of 2020. These are outcomes of misuse of the resources and abuse of the mother earth.
Many people may have to move to places less expensive or to be able to find a less paying job to provide for their families.
Fortunately, in 2021st, we will be able to find new revolutionary methods through discovery and innovation to build our economy back. Thanks to Uranus in the sign of Taurus, we may see new construction, new technology and new way of using our land that will treat the earth with more love and respect.
KRIS: How this will influence the real estate?
GITA: Uranus is the planet that will travel through Taurus from March 2018 until July 21, 2025. It is a time for revolution to awaken to nature and our basic needs. Uranus cycle is 84 years. Taurus is the sign of money, finances, security, food, and our land. Now, with Uranus here, we can see a revolution in our land, in our selling land and properties and the way we will build and work our land. Uranus brings crisis and revolution, also enlightenment, technological and scientific innovation, new ways and much-needed change. Uranus in Taurus means changes in all material aspects of life, such as the Earth itself, in money, property, land and territory, food, farming, production, consumption, industry, manufacturing, housing and construction.
If the dollar crashes or continues its slide down (during the second part of 2020) against other world currencies, foreign investment in US assets will be withdrawn. Then the financial system will be deteriorated and again, we will be in a big financial crash, which will influence Real estate, as well as our lives in general.
There has been increasing homelessness throughout the world as millions have had to leave their homes due to war, oppression, and poverty or because they simply cannot afford a place to live. Uranus in Taurus means radical changes in housing and its provision, so there are likely to arise new kinds of home ownership, new kinds of property dealers and landlords, a new way of building, renting, buying and selling property. It means a modernization of homes, revolutionary types of buildings, more technological and experimental, different kinds of ownership, previously unheard of, more community housing, group-living, groups taking over land to live sustainably and in line with nature. It includes new innovative methods of building and new inventions in building materials, technologies that are suitable to the nature, construction robots programmed to work together as a group.
Astrologer predict 15 to 20% drop down the price of the houses to the end of 2020. The general forecast is that home prices will continue to fall down through the end of 2020, then we expect the recovering to happen in the spring of 2022, which means next year the price will continue to drop, due to economy and depreciation of the dollar.
Kris: What would be the “new normal” from now on?
Gita: As we see, many states are ready for the end of the lock down and to go back to normal, a new normal with unsettling worrying as everyday changes.
A thousand of people have to work from home. Many doctors start to see patients online or have only conversations over the phone. More and more businesses are open to run and do their jobs online.
In the new normal, the needs will dominate wants – as impulse buying and high-ticket purchases get carefully postponed. This will drastically reduce non-essential consumption, at least for the next couple of years. We can temporarily say goodbye to the reckless shopping “buy now, think later” culture!
An unexpected – but welcome – side effect of this would be marked increase in personal contentment levels. In other words, we will be happier with a lot less. Air travel probably will be luxury.
The way we move around and have fun will be changed. Public transportation, carpooling, mass transit, mass entertainment avenues such as bars, restaurants, concerts, entertainment centers and cinemas will become taboo for some people, if not to all. The future impact Saturn and Pluto conjunction and Covid-19 influences on our lives are going to be more significant than we think.
We are going to change the way we have fun and entertainment, new better ways to take care of our children as we are giving them more attention and love.
There are new ways how to learn and travel, how to make business.
We are going to change our value system toward partnerships and relationships, as many will find out they are not compatible in the new life structure, others will find new partnership and decide to share resources.
Life will be changed, but there will be other morals and ethics that will be considered more valuable.
Chiron in Aries will give us a lesson that will be treasured in a long run: Chiron prompts us to be aware of our own ‘babyish’ behavior and our reactions to not getting what we want exactly when we want it, when we cry like a baby or throw our toys out of the stroller. It prompts us to look at self-assertion, particularly where it is not used for the greater good but for purely egotistical reasons.
It is a time to accept our defects or deficiencies and realize we don’t have to be the strongest, the fittest, the fastest or the best to contribute to the workings of the whole, it is a time we can direct our energies, passions and self-interests into doing our part in the name of humanity.
We must think and work to save the earth, we need to be aware of our action and live a life that is balanced in harmony to the earth’s rules.
We need to stop being a big consumer and to think about what we really need to be happy! How much furniture do you need? How many cars per family? How many clothes, dresses and perfumes do we need? How big should our house be? Are the groceries I buy from the store healthy or poisoned with pesticides? Can I grow my own instead? Is the air where I live good for my family and kids or should I move to the country and have stress free life?
This is a time to find out what we really want in life and what gives us energy, enthusiasm and passion to pursue. A time to realize there is a higher power and it is according to divine timing when we get what we want. Mentors, teachers, and healers in various aspect of our lives appear to help us acknowledge our real ambitions and desires and the good causes we are willing to fight for. This is the perfect timing (Chiron) to get what we want and following our hearts! It is time for us to fight with honor and courage (Chiron in Aries).
Kris: How to be prepared and what to do during this time of transformation to easy the healing process and adaptation?
We need to be prepared for many changes, our life will never going to be the same again, we have to accept and be open to the new changes that can bring fresh air. Don’t expect that magic will bring the old life style back, no. We are moving in a new direction of the new life and new world. You don’t have to live in fears, NO! Don’t hold on the old, as you know it and feel secure, it will never be the same. Be flexible and be happy to hear that during this crisis the mother world will be cleaned, healed and transformed for higher living of existence. There will be a bumper on the road that we have to overcome until we take over the new road. It will be time for transformation and adoption. Nothing happen overnight, no magics. To build the new world we have to adjust and accept the slight shakings, we must be prepared for them. One way or other, we will survive. I will mention Mather Terisa here: To contribute to the transformation and healing processes, what we achieve, or win is not as important, as how much love we put into what we did. Remembering her words can make the healing time less painful.
Recently, we have been shown pictures taken of the earth’s atmosphere during the “big shutdown”. Clear blue skies, clean waters, and the evaporation of pollution, all these demonstrate how the traditional ways of doing business in big developed economies on the earth are destroying the environment. Now, we can see the challenges we are facing. All live organism on the earth are in danger of dying and we need to work consciously with concern how to save the mother earth.
Yesterday, a good friend of mine shared something amazing. She moved to Knoxville 5 years ago and she planted dwarf mulberry, a plum tree, nectarines, peaches and pears trees. These trees were week, never have fruits, they always look like they are sick and bizarre. It was a miracle, she said, this spring, all my trees start to smile, they look beautiful, they have small fruits, WOW!
Isn’t it wonderful to know that the earth, the nature, all living creatures are healed and come to life again? How about our life? How about our body? The air we breathe and food we eat, the water we drink? We must open our eyes and see not just the bad but the good things as well. Bad things happen for reason, they make us aware of the way we live. Disease comes when something needs to be eliminated, when something is wrong, either in our body or in the established system. Remember, there is a rainbow after the storm. We will be healed, but we all must take responsible actions. Our movements and performances should come from our heart, being compassionate and doing everything we do with love. Only, then, the real healing will begin.
