Can Astrology Predict The Year of Great Pestilence or Pandemic? Which Year?

Is Astrology can be made archetypally as a tool to predict in which year some pandemic will come to our world?

If we love to read astrology books, I’ve heard in the astrology community that Richard Tarnas already predicted a COVID-19 pandemic from his book that was released in 2006.

So yeah, if some spiritual practitioner, most of the time, predicts some uneasy condition including some catastrophe or pandemic, they usually try to predict 1 year beforehand (as part of next year’s reading), he already predict more than 10 years ago.

But aside from that, is Astrology can be made archetypally as a tool to predict in which year some pandemic will come to our world?

From my own little research, yes…there is. And it’s from an ancient text called Choice Aphorism from The Seven Segments of Cardan, which, most of the time, we can get free in the form of an ebook.

An Aphorism Text That Related to Pandemic

In short, Aphorism text is mostly used for Horary and Electional Astrology. Since it’s more like a proven doctrine from time to time, this aphorism is like a collection of “conclusions” of astrological phenomena along the impact of that in the most direct sentence possible.

And when I’m reading them, I found some interesting passages in the “Choice Aphorism from The Seven Segment of Cardan”, in the “Aphorism Related to General Accident” segment, point 6:

A Conjunction of Mars and Saturn, in the sixth or eighth house, especially in the humane sign, signifies a great Pestilence.

Since house positions are very time sensitive, we can skip them for now, and focus on the word “humane sign”.

The term humane sign itself is a zodiac sign that has a human figure in its depiction. In this case, the zodiac has a human figure…

  • Virgo, since mostly depicted with a woman, which is mostly a virgin woman.
  • Libra, in some illustrations, is depicted as a man/ woman who holds a scale (of justice), although this one was still debatable.
  • Aquarius, in some illustrations, is depicted mostly as a woman who pours water.
  • Gemini, most illustrations depict them as twins.

In short, when Mars Conjunct Saturn in Virgo, Libra, Gemini, or Aquarius, this will be a time indicator that our world might face some pestilence/ pandemic issue globally.

In Which Year That Was Happening?

Let’s start with a recent moment, which is the COVID-19 pandemic.

Mars Conjunct Saturn in Aquarius around early April 2020

Yes, by the time Covid-19 becomes the well-known pandemic, mars conjunct Saturn in Aquarius, a humane sign.

Mars Conjunct Saturn in Virgo, 2008

Then what about Mars conjunct Saturn in Virgo, 2008? At that time, there was a global spread of H5N1 or influenza in birds. Here’s the Wikipedia link.

Mars Conjunct Saturn in Libra 31st Juli 2010

Here’s another example of Mars conjunct Saturn in Libra around the middle of 2010. In this case, since Libra is after Virgo, there’s also swine flu that start in 2009 but continues to spread in 2010.

Mars conjunct Saturn on 4th May 2002

Around 2002, the first year that we found the SARS outbreak. Here’s the Wikipedia article:

Mars Conjunct Saturn in Aquarius on 6th March 1992

Since in the year 1992, the internet has still not been widely circulated, and it’s getting harder to find some articles about the pandemic. And what I’ve found is a new strain of cholera Virus from Asia that year.

And also, there is still a great influenza virus that spread that year especially H3N2 subtype A.

Mars conjunct Saturn on 7th July 1982.

For the last example, it’s getting harder to trace the disease that becomes a major outbreak at that time. And from googling the internet, I’ve found that the US has some Foodborne disease outbreaks with unidentified pathogens at that time. Here’s the article:

Which Year That We Need to be Aware Of in The Future?

If we use some astrology software, we found the nearest Mars conjunct Saturn is in Gemini in the year 2032, years from the time this article is written.

Mars Conjunct Saturn in Gemini 3rd June 2032

What This Article is For?

At least, when I published this article, even though we’re still 10 years later, anyone who reads this will look at this, not as a doom and gloom tale, but more as a very early cautionary article, especially for anyone who works in the health care sector.

Hope this article helps as much.

Medical Astrology, A Quick Lesson Part 3

In this part, I’m using a birth chart combined with transit to determine the source of sickness and some recommendations about which doctor you need to consult if those diseases are in a worrying state.

Not all kinds of sicknesses are born from our genetic factors. In some cases, even some type of “human error” like too much eating, too much drinking, and less exercise than usual may lead to some potential disease.

In this part, I’m using a birth chart combined with transit to determine the source of sickness and some recommendations about which doctor you need to consult if those diseases are in a worrying state.

How to Identify The Source of Disease: Method 2, TRANSIT

In this method, we have to know two important things:

  • The client’s birth chart
  • Planetary transit chart at the first time the client feels some disease

Most of the time, client’s didn’t know the exact time they experienced the pain the first time, so just set 12:00 p.m as transit time. Alternatively, if the client didn’t know the exact date he feels the pain, then just use the date he goes into bed because of disease or the date that he goes to the clinic/ hospital. Otherwise, if the worst case comes that he didn’t know when at all, just use “today and current time” transit, more like a horary analysis.

And for example, we use “Clare” as a sample birth chart.

“Clare” Birth Chart

On 2 August 2022, Clare told me that her skin somehow become more rash than usual and she felt some kind of fatigue sensation in her back. She thought that she didn’t do any kind of work that really push her and she get adequate sleep. She asked me whether she have the wrong position when she sleep or if anything contributed to her rash skin and fatigue back.

She thinks that she felt something was off at around 31st July 2022. So I’m using her birth chart and the transit on 31st July as the base for analysis.

Here’s the transit for 31st July 2022…

Transit 31st July 2022

Then I’m combining those 2 charts to become like the one below, using the solar fire app.

Clare Chart (inner) and transit position (outer)

In this chart, we found an interesting pattern. Clare’s natal pluto in Scorpio has 2 squares, with transit Uranus (which was in retrograde at that time) in Aquarius and transit mercury in Leo.

In medical astrology, Saturn rules the skin or frame of the body, Pluto rules our body at the cellular level, and Mercury rules our nervous system. Since Clare said she feels fatigued in her back (fatigue also related to the nervous system), and her skin becomes rash (that’s typically Saturn), I think these aspects are worth analyzing. While Pluto in general can’t tell us about a specific part of the body, we can see her natal Pluto, which has 2 squares, is in Scorpio.

Scorpio, besides ruling the reproductive system, also rules a potential for -reinfection from food-, while Aquarius (where transit Saturn is) rules her spinal column, unsurprisingly Leo (where transit mercury at) also rules the spinal cord, which both of them are disease related to back fatigue. Since Saturn is on her 9th house and Mercury is on the 3rd house, which both of them are the house of travel, I’m asking her if recently, before 31st July, she made some short/ long travel to another area that’s outside her every day’s activities and maybe eat something unusual.

The answer is a yes, although the term “unusual” means she hasn’t eaten that kind of food for a long time. Turns out at that time, she eats some seafood that is grilled in the open air environment (that’s literally related to Fire in Leo, Water in Scorpio, and Air in Aquarius for you!). It’s not that the food in there isn’t hygiene, but because she finally eats that grilled seafood, Clare has raised her appetite for grilled seafood and since then, she has always looked at grilled seafood as her lunch at a different place.

Because of eating grilled seafood every day at different places, I think one of those places she eats, has some environment that’s not really hygienic. And that’s what contributes to her food poisoning.

So, my recommendation to her at that time is just to avoid grilled seafood and eat in a hygiene restaurant, for now, to let her body heal itself from food infection. Even if she wants to consult with a doctor, I’m recommending just a general Doctor or internist. She accept my recommendation and now she’s recovered from food poisoning.

Closing Remark

One of the advantages of Medical Astrology is to help find the source of disease, which sometimes doesn’t directly relate, faster than usual medical check-ups. It’s not meant to replace the analysis from medical professionals, but it might help to find the root cause of the disease, which in most cases, the patient needs to overcome some procedural test before the doctor makes some diagnosis. It can also help us to get some recommendations on which doctor they need to consult if the disease is in a worrying state.

Medical Astrology, A Quick Lesson Part 2

In this post, I’m sharing the 1st method I’m using just for a quick reading session for a client that asking for a brief medical consideration.

Photo by Karolina Grabowska on

After we understand the significance of zodiac and planet in medical astrology, now it’s time to move unto how to analyze potential illnesses that we have from our birth chart.

For that, I need to make some disclaimers first. This medical astrology is used as an alternative diagnosis and can not replace the main medical diagnosis provided by medical professionals. Astrology, especially medical astrology only read the potential illness and its source and doesn’t mean it will manifest in your life. All medication for treatment, if some medical astrologer provides that, is advisable to consult a person which is professional in the respective medical field before you really take those.

How To Identify Our Potential Sickness From Our Chart: Method 1, Fast General Reading

In this post, I’m sharing the 1st method I’m using just for a quick reading session for a client that asking for a brief medical consideration. And from this method only, we need to give some information beforehand that this is just a quick reading for potential illness to a client, for more detailed diagnosis in astrology, usually, we need to do another session just for that topic. I’ll share the more detailed reading for medical consideration in part 3 of this post.

The first method is simple, we use Saturn as a significator for potential sickness that comes from within, and Chiron for potential sickness that comes from outside. Just see where the Saturn and Chiron are in the client’s chart.

For example…

“Robert” Chart

In Robert’s chart, we see Saturn in Scorpio and Chiron in Gemini.

As Saturn in Scorpio, we can see Robert’s potential illnesses are in his reproductive system, prostate gland, AND food poisoning. We just tell him that potential illness that comes from his own body and sees which one is more makes sense to him. Most of the time, food poisoning is more common. It might be because he usually so much trial and error with any kind of food ingredients in his house (house 4 gives us information about the home situation), and sometimes, his trial and error become so extreme (pluto in 4th house) that food poisoning is a common occurrence to him.

While Chiron is in Gemini, we can see Robert’s potential illness is in his arm, shoulder, central nervous system, or kidney tube. Again, we just tell him about that potential illness and just tell him to be very careful. If somehow he got some accident, his arm, shoulder, nervous system, or his body’s tube will likely be impacted.

As for how for him to be careful, just see in which house Chiron falls into. In this case, 11th house. It means those accidents are likely to happen if he’s not careful in socializing or interacting with his friend or communities. It might also mean that if he spent too much time on something related to technological advancement or too much work to achieve his hope and dreams (11th house topic), then he most likely experience some accident that harm his arm or body’s tube in the future.

Let’s see another example…

Joe’s Chart

Assume the name of this chart is Joe, we can see Chiron is in Aries, 2nd house and Saturn is in Aquarius, 12th house.

Chiron in Aries rules the head and motor center of the brain, also blood circulation to the head. Joe needs to be careful especially when he does something related to his 2nd house (money, material possession matters), because there’s the potential of harming his head.

For example, if he’s overworked himself simply because his job/ project rewards lots of money in a short time and he wants that job to finish as soon as possible, it’s likely he’ll get a headache.

Saturn in Aquarius, rules the calves, ankles, blood circulation, eyes, and nerve system in the spinal column. From this one, he has some potential to injure his calves or ankles or have some abnormal blood circulation because of his mind in a constant negative situation or bad mood for a long time or too much thinking psychologically or too much sleep (12th house topic).

Next Article, we’ll discuss the 2nd method to see the potential illness in more detail.

Medical Astrology, A Quick Lesson Part 1

In short, Medical Astrology is like an ancient method for X-Ray your body to find the potential disease since born, try to find the psychological or environmental cause, and also search for the source of the disease by the time client feels ill.

Astrology has lots of improvement and discipline nowadays. And besides the “recently become more popular” financial astrology, because astrologers try to find the pattern for crypto trading, we also see some part of astrology that is as interesting as theirs: Medical Astrology.

In short, Medical Astrology is like an ancient method for X-Ray your body to find the potential disease since born, try to find the psychological or environmental cause, and also search for the source of the disease by the time client feels ill. Nowadays, it can be treated as a supplemental diagnosis besides the diagnosis from a professional doctor.

Medical astrology has several approaches practiced by lots of astrologers. Some use the natal chart, some use the natal chart and transit, and some combine horary astrology to make some medical diagnosis. The purpose of this article is to introduce the reader to some quick basic and important knowledge of medical astrology.

Some information here is credited to Eileen Nauman’s book: Medical Astrology. And if you are interested to learn, you can start from there. Another book I’ll recommend is Traditional Medical Astrology: Medical Astrology From Celestial Omens to 1930 CE by Dr. J. Lee Lehman.

Ok, let’s begin this topic.

Zodiac As Medical Rulership

First, we need to understand zodiac rulership for medical terms. Here’s the table for zodiac rulership in human anatomy.

AriesRules head in general, specifically motor center of the brain and blood circulation on our skull.

My Hypothesis About Chiron in Medical Astrology

Chiron is rarely mentioned in those medical astrology literature. Although we know Chiron as an archetype of Wounded Healer : The one who heal others by learning from his own wound at the same time.

The Education of Achilles by Chironfresco from Herculaneum, 1st century AD (Museo Archeologico Nazionale, Naples)

Most of the time, either in modern or traditional astrology, the astrologer will evaluate the client’s medical condition by seeing each planet’s condition. In a more simple term, we see which planet has more than one hard aspect, especially through the malefic planet, and we make analyze any potential illness the native will likely experience throughout their life. And also as a bonus, which supplement can reduce/ mitigate those illnesses.

But through my study and ( little ) research, Chiron is rarely mentioned in the medical astrology literature. Although we know Chiron as an archetype of Wounded Healer: The one who heals others by learning from his wound at the same time. Most likely we found Chiron as an Archetype of Healing factor in our modern astrology practice.

The Usual Chiron Meaning

When we see Chiron in the birth chart, some new students at astrology will find it hard to translate this kind of archetype to a more concrete example. To put it simply, astrologers mostly interpret Chiron as the place (the house in our chart) we found some healing factor and that’s correct. But maybe, not the whole story.

From my own experience, depends on which house system you’ll use (I’m using Placidus and wholesign house complementary for birth chart reading), I found that the location of Chiron is to know the aspect of our life that we potentially have/ will face a traumatic event.

For example, someone who has Chiron in the 5th house will likely face his traumatic experience in his childhood when he has children. Someone who has Chiron in the 8th house will likely face her traumatic experience related to a joint asset, sex, or death itself.

And for this one, it’s very helpful as an alternative tool for assessment, especially for a psychologist who is also an astrologer, to find which traumatic/wounded event will be most deep in the client’s psyche.

My Hypothesis About Chiron’s Another Significator

While most medical astrology are using planet (both natal and transit) to analyze a client’s disease, I’ve found through consultation and some famous people’s birth charts, there are some correlations between potential diseases or some impact on our body when we experience some accident. In short, body sickness comes from an “outside factor”.

Yeah, in medical astrology, we analyze our potential sickness to our body that comes from within by analyzing our planet in our birth chart. While I think, we can analyze the potential sickness of our body that comes from harm outside our body. That’s my hypothesis right now.

How to analyse Chiron ? It’s rather simple…

  1. Just locate our Chiron in which zodiac
  2. Find the planetary rulership of those zodiac
  3. See-through literature or google, which part of the body that rules by that zodiac and planet.
  4. And voila, you’ll know which part of your body that will be harmed if you experience some extreme accident at a later time.

In some cases, this kind of ‘accident’ can happen only once, twice, or several times in your lifetime. Some traditional Hellenistic methods can help us “how many times” the accident potential will happen in our lifetime: through a simple quadruplicities of the zodiac, annual profection, or even more complex zodiacal releasing method especially from lot of fortune.

Example Chart 1 : Christopher Reeves

Christopher Reeve from Wikipedia
Christopher Reeve using WholeSign House from

We see the Chiron is in house 6th in Capricorn.

Capricorn usually rules on knees and joint problems within the bone. Capricorn is also ruled by Saturn, which is synonymized as ruler of frame of the body, which is skin and also our bones, depending on the chart.

And when we search Christopher Reeve on Wikipedia, we found that he broke his neck because he was thrown from a horse in a competition accident. He’s paralyzed from his shoulder and using a wheelchair and ventilator for the rest of his life.

The keyword like he can’t move his body from shoulder / his move is very limited, is very Capricorn and Saturnian thing.

The same can also be seen at the next chart

Example Chart 2 : Frida Kahlo

Frida Kahlo From Wikipedia
Frida Kahlo using WholeSign House from

Frida Kahlo, a Mexican painter known for her portrait, is also had an accident that makes her suffer from a long pain in her life.

We see from her chart that Chiron is in Aquarius, and ruled by Saturn and Uranus. Aquarius is known for ruling the calves and ankles of the leg and also the spinal cord. Saturn, we know as the ruler of body frame. While Uranus we know as “spontan muscle spasm” and nervous spasm (along with Mercury).

We know the moment when she changes her life direction from a physician into becoming a painter when she suffer a bus accident: Fractured pelvic bone, punctured abdomen and uterus, spine broken in three places, right leg broken in eleven places, and later on, displaced vertebrae in three places.

So we see some combination here: Aquarius which ruled calves and ankles is broken, accident in Saturn quality (both bone and skin), and also muscle injury (Uranus).

I think those 3 factors: leg in specific, bones and muscle are suffering the most. Even though she recovered from those injuries.

Example Chart 3: Native

My own client chart (without mentioning the name, date of birth, and time of birth), we see some interesting Chiron places…

Native Chart, WholeSign Houses, using Solar Fire 9

We see Chiron in Cancer, which famously rule the stomach and digestive system. The moon as Cancer Ruler is also indicating that emotional treat related to the moon’s cycle.

This is my friend’s chart and he always said to me that he needs to be very careful of what he is eating. Otherwise, he’ll likely have a digestive problem. So yeah, we can see some digestive problem (Cancer) that comes from outside. While at the same time, the moon as Cancer’s ruler, makes him can go from a chill to an emotional person and back to chill in a short time. He also said to me that seeing/ meditating while seeing the full moon in the sky, helps him calm his nerve tremendously.

A Hypothesis That Still Needs More Data

This Chiron archetype as medical astrology stuff, for me, is still a hypothesis and still needs some more data to prove that. Any help by proofing or countering my hypothesis is very much welcome; and hope if my hypothesis is right, we can use this Chiron for our future astrology practice, especially in the medical field.
