Podcast 6 - Aries Ingress Charts for forcasting what's ahead for various countries
In this podcast, we are joined by Canadian astrologer Moreen Reed from Cardinal Astrology.
The Aries Ingress Chart is cast for when the Sun enters (ingresses) into the sign of Aries. One way that astrologers have looked ahead and forecast what a country can expect is by casting a chart set for the capital city for when the Sun ingresses into Aries.
In this podcast, we look at the Aries Ingress Charts for the USA, Canada, Australia, Ukraine, Russia, and the UK.
Check out Donna’s Article on her website regarding the U.S.A. Aries Ingress Chart.

Transcript for the Podcast
Hi I’m Donna from Donna B Astrology…
and I’m Lynda from Scullywag Astrology… and
we’re welcoming Moreen today.
Hi folks, I’m Moreen Reed from Cardinal Astrology in Western Canada.
Welcome Moeen, it’s a delight to have you
here. Thank you… Certainly is. We’re doing the
charts today for the ingress of the Sun
into Aries and that is very particular, it’s
been used for over 4 000 years, one
of the oldest forms of astrology and
the astrologer would cast a chart for the country…
what they would be facing for the future year
The charts only last if based on the rising
sign of the chart. If it’s a cardinal sign
they’re only good for three months. Where if it
is a common sign or mutable sign those are good
for six months, and if it’s a fixed sign, it’s good
for the entire year. … Yeah, and as luck would have it,
I’m from Australia and our sign on the ascendant
is Leo I believe, I know it’s a fixed sign in
any case, and that means the chart’s valid for a
year. I know that Moreen, from Canada… Canada’s
chart has what on the ascendant?
It has a cardinal and i’m very happy that it does
because it’s quite a poopy chart and I’m glad
it’s only going to last for three months. Yay!
And Donna? Mine is mutable. Mine is a
mutable sign so it’s only good for six months.
So the ingress chart is a little bit
different to a natal chart. The meanings of the
planets and the houses are a little bit different
with mundane astrology. So Donna’s going to run
through what the houses mean in mundane astrology.
Okay it’s basically the same for a natal, it’s just
slightly different and accommodate that to a
country. So in natal it would be the first
house is yourself. The first house for the country,
the ingress chart is going to be the health and the
vitality of the country. The second house it’s your
finances where in this, in the ingress chart it’s
going to be the finances of the country.
So the banking systems. The third house, its
community, your community, and your
city but in mundane it is the railways
and the things that build a community. Fourth
house has a lot to do with agriculture.
This one specifically has to do with the leader
of the, or the opposition of the leader. It also
has to do with agriculture and mining things,
the fourth house. The fifth house has to do with
in your in the natal chart you’ll
see that it has to do with pleasure and
and fun things. It’s the same way but it
has on a bigger scope… the arenas
the music halls, and that kind of thing. The sixth
house has to do with illness for… for in your
natal chart. In the mundane it has to do with
the military and the things that you serve. So the
things that you do on the daily is which is in
your natal chart but in a mundane it’s gonna be
how the country, what they do daily to keep it
surviving. The seventh house is the house
of the other in the natal and in mundane
it’s gonna be the house of the open enemies.
The eighth house is the house of the global
market it’s… in other words, it’s the other
person’s money and in the mundane chart it’s
the global market, so it’s like the world
centers of finances. And then in the ninth
house is usually philosophy… it’s pretty darn
close. It still has to do with law and
higher education and foreign matters.
What are we on? Tenth house is… tenth
house is another house we want
to look at. It’s on the angle and that is the
house where the leader is usually represented…
of the country. So wherever, whatever planets are in
there are very very prominent and important.
The ninth house or, the 11th house has to do with…
usually our hopes and dreams but in the…
in mundane astrology, it has to do with parliament
and those people that help the leader of the
country. And the 11th….. or the 12th house is
the house of endings in the natal chart and
self-undoing, some people… and escapism I usually
call it. But in the mundane chart it has to
with the prison systems, the hospitals, the
monasteries and those places that you go.
It also has and shows secret
enemies or secret spies
the underhanded stuff. So yeah, it’s very, it’s very
interesting. It’s not too different but it is
a little a little different. Yes thank you Donna; and
now Moreen’s gonna run through the planets.
Okay, so the traditional planets okay are
gonna translate over to actual physical things.
So we have the Sun as whoever is the leader. So
of course in ancient times that would have been
now it’ll be the head of the government
but it also relates to magistrates and
judges and all persons of authority and
of distinction. Okay so and public heroes,
national champions. Yeah, they also fit under that.
The Moon is the common people, in particular
depending on the chart it can really point to
women’s issues but it’s also just, you
know, when hordes of people get together.
Common or public situations, the
position of the Moon will show
where the public’s attention is being focused for,
you know, again sometimes up to upwards of a year.
Mercury governs, you know, all of the
communication things of course. Now we’ll
have to put in, you know, things like social
media and that type of stuff. It’s trade and
commerce though as well… and so this is, just the,
you know, like the transportation systems and and
the movement of goods, you know so telecom
industries and local transportation issues as in
not, you know the big shipping things
or air transport to be… yeah just the
what runs across the country. Venus governs
things like national birth rate, marriage but
also the arts, anything to do with the arts. It’s
also facilities for sports and entertainment
and probably the biggest one, given the times
we’re living in, will be peace and diplomacy. Okay
Mars governs the military, soldiers, okay
war, terrorist attacks, industrial disputes,
strikes. Basically, conflict within a country.
It can also relate very specifically to fires,
arson, you know, obviously in places like
Ukraine it would be bombs and things like that.
Okay, Jupiter is religious/judicial world
and so if a nation is for instance considered like
an Islamic state that would be a Jupiter
thing. The justice system, prominent people
within that, judges, so like for instance
in the U.S. this would be the Supreme Court
and issues around that. It’s also national wealth,
nations wealth, banks, and bankers. Saturn has chief
influence over elderly people, that would
be me, no. Governs the national death rate,
life-threatening epidemic. So there
you go. Landowners, farmers, mines,
you know, coal industries and it’s also state
funerals, public sorrow, and disappointment.
Then we get to the outer planets which of course
thousands of years ago they weren’t using and I
see these more as creating effects in a country. So
Uranus, rioting, outbreaks of political tension
considered right-wing political ideas. That’s
up for question but it could be. Free market
enterprise, fascism, urge towards individualism.
So this would be, I would say libertarian. Right?
It rules separation, scientific breakthroughs… which
for sure… and discoveries. Explosions, anarchy and
nihilism. Neptune on the other hand is left-wing
politics, socialism, communism. It’s the urge
towards collectivism. It is linked with mobs,
secret plots… and I’m gonna put that with Pluto…
fraud, definitely, swindling, yes. The pink
fairy dust or glamour. Glamour is one of the
things that fraudsters will use yeah and that’s a
Neptune thing. Okay. Bogus companies, you know, like
your Ponzi schemes, that type of thing. Pluto, of
course, is regeneration, death, rebirth… and it’s
this… is such a big process that
within a year it would be difficult
to actually pinpoint specific things but
it’s more the tenor of the time in terms of…
are things collapsing? You know, doing the
phoenix rising from the ashes. Are we in the ash
stage? Are we, you know, have we completely
destroyed and now can we start to rebuild?
But that process lasts years. Yeah and
so where you’re gonna find Pluto you’re gonna see
where the current state of regeneration
slash or still collapsing is occurring. Yeah.
It’s interesting when you were saying about
Neptune. I was just thinking they had this…
these shows on Netflix recently… like “The Tinder
Swindler” and the… something…”Inventing Anna”
about two kind of con people and it’s kind
of quite interesting. We’ve got Jupiter coming
up to Neptune and Neptune’s all that, you know,
deception and kind of, you know, smoke and mirrors
and just basically bs and… Yeah, yeah it’s quite
a glamour and when glamour is done right, you can
actually, even though you’ve been taken for a ride,
there is, there’s something about that that, you
know, you can kind of go “wow, you did that really
well”. Yeah, well yeah, they’re almost kind of like…
there’s almost like a… particularly with the
Anna woman, almost like…”oh well, you know she
wasn’t that bad”, and you know “go girl!”. You know, it’s
quite bizarre,. It is, it is. We do live in, I mean
since Neptune has been in Pisces… which is
I believe 2011 is when it went in there
that whole phenomena to me just seems to be
getting thicker and thicker. So that parsing out
what’s actually true is almost, yeah… Well, yeah,
you were talking about social media too and just
so many people, using literal fit, what do they
call them? Filters. You know. Yeah, it’s quite strange.
Yes, very Neptunian. Well, we’ve got a whole heap of
charts to get through, so I’m going to get started.
What are we going to be looking at first?
Ukraine because it’s in the news. Yes. So
that’s the Ukraine chart. It has Virgo, which is
a mutable sign on the ascendant. So this chart’s
valid for six months. So we’ve got Mercury ruling
the first. So the general conditions of the country
and the tenth, so the ruler, Right
The moon… The Sun is over here in the seventh
he’s not doing too badly. I
mean he’s getting some support
albeit from Pluto and a little bit from Uranus
but there’s a fair bit of sixth house here.
We got Pluto in the fourth of the homeland…
Looks like it’s going to be changing
that’s where that rebirth and rebuilding
is going to be taking place. I think we’re
still working on the complete decimation first, unfortunately.
Yeah, hopefully, that won’t last too long.
Yes, let me, this is… because it’s only valid for six
months, this is the Libra ingress six months later.
We are still on a Virgo ascendant so… well
it doesn’t really matter. I mean it’s still going
to go for six months and you still count the
first one (ingress chart) I believe as well. Even like with your
poopy chart Moreen. You still got that three
month one to start with, you just build on it
from what I understand. But yeah.
So what strikes me about this chart is, you know, if the
Moon also is indicative of the common people,
this is the feeling of being incarcerated. So we’re
gonna hope that this is in the incarceration of
the people who are doing the incursion and not the
people themselves but I have a feeling that this
does not bode well for, yeah Russia leaving.
No, this does not look good. This does not
look good. Mars up there on the 10th so full-out
conflict still happening. And a lot of squares
and oppositions in this chart and that’s going to
be for everybody that has the Libra ingress
because it’s the same conditions and that, it’s
just they’re in different houses, depending on
where you are in the world… But that 12th house
is also exile and I was hearing, I think, it’s a
huge amount, maybe two million already have
left I believe. They were saying that I think
it’s one of the biggest, kind of exoduses of
refugees. But if you consider the
actual population which is 44 million
that’s how many people are experiencing
this war. That’s a lot of people.
Freezing. I know, I’m in Michigan and it’s very cold
here. It’s got to be very cold there too as well.
What I’ve noticed about this chart is most
of the planets are now all in retrograde.
Interesting. Yeah. Which is a
function of the time of year
Yeah, and where the outer planets currently
are moving through… Yeah. Yeah. I see that
the ruler of the tenth too, meaning the
leader, Venus is also combust the Sun.
And we’ve also got Russia. This
is the Aries ingress for Russia.
So a very late degree ascendant in Virgo. 29 degrees. Also….
They’re very similar charts…
on the MC as well. I’m kind of hoping, you know,
it’s very very close to changing signs. In horary
astrology that means a changing situation.
Yeah, instability. I’m kind of hoping that
29 degrees 10th house is indicative of maybe
a new leadership there. New leadership. Yayyyy.
Hopefully not worse. Yes. There was an incident
apparently last night on live Russian news of a
woman who interrupted a live broadcast …. I saw that….
Yeah which is excellent, you know they’re lying
to you. Yes. Yeah actually, I’m just wondering
because anonymous has been hacking into the
radio (tv and streaming) stations of that too. I suppose that
would be Uranus. Yep yep. Yeah getting the message
out. So yeah, which is very difficult given
that Uranus is in Taurus and Venus is besieged
so it would take an explosive act to break through.
Yeah. Mars is squaring Uranus. Yeah, collectively
Yes it is yeah nice square…. yeah collectively
having that Venus besieged in all of the ingress
charts, you know, of course, it depends on what house
it’s in. This is not the typical
hopeful Spring moment that the world
actually wants and, you know, fortunately
we have the strength of the Piscean circuit to
let go of the rational and to focus on faith
and hope and trust but it’s not going
to be from a rational point of view.
You’ll just have to feel it in your bones.
It’s quite interesting the
Libra ingress for Russia.
We have Virgo rising still
but we have the MC in Taurus
I thought it was interesting though that
where is it?
Venus is in the first house… ruling that 10th house
No, it doesn’t rule it. It doesn’t rule it?
No, because that’s it’s… oh I see, yes the tenth. Sorry, pardon
me. You are right yeah. Oh and that tenth house
27 degrees Taurus that’s very very close to Algol
which is a really nasty fixed star. Kind of, no…
associated with losing your head and the Medusa.
Yeah you can actually see that in
Northern Michigan when it’s really really
dark. I bet you you see it in Canada too but
you can see that the eye of the ox
well the… the illumination changes and it looks
like it’s blinking at you. Oh wow. It’s really cool
it’s really cool. When you can see it in a really
dark sky it’s the head of… it’s the eye of Medusa
It’s a freaky story to tell your young children.
I thought it was really interesting, that we’ve got the ruler
of the ascendant intercepted in the tenth as well
and with that Mercury burnt
up by the sun in the second
I mean obviously, they’ve already had a lot of
sanctions put on them. A lot of companies are
withdrawing and you know the economy’s
just in a deep dive over there but
maybe yeah. The moon squaring that MC also is
interesting in terms of, you know, the
people having quite a struggle to get themselves
heard out there with them being in the 12th
house. Yeah yeah, that’s tied right into how close…
that’s the other thing that’s going to happen in
the Fall, right? Mercury is going to stay dancing
back and forth in Gemini and we’ve got the last
close square from Saturn and Uranus and so if
this sets the tone for the next six months the
crunch that Saturn and Uranus
have been placing upon society
is going to be directly affecting people in a big
way in Russia. Yeah yeah. Didn’t you say that Saturn was
diseases or epidemics? Yes, yeah it is. It is in
the sixth house, yeah, but that to me, that’ll
probably be more to do with the fact that
the economy with the sanctions will have
you know hit a stop. Right? Saturn saying stop. Yeah
and that’s opposite. So the people are feeling, you
know, like they’re in jail and so that desire for
the outlet in Uranus is going to be very strong.
Yeah right, like a political mindset shift.
And the north node with
Uranus as well amping all that up even more.
Yeah yeah yeah and we probably, as Donna was
talking about yesterday, we’ll probably
have an eclipse that will support that.
Wonderful. Actually what eclipse would that be?
November 20, November 8th. November 8th there you
go. Oh okay, so 2:02 p.m on November 8th. Yeah it’ll
be in the low degrees of Scorpio because it’s
moving backwards or yeah moving down to Libra
Oh yeah there it is 2 p.m at 16 degrees of Taurus
Yeah, so that’s with the
so that’s the Libra ingress chart for Russia
Yeah, and so that eclipse will trigger that. It’ll
make it a complete t-square with the Sun
Saturn and Uranus, that eclipse. Yeah, it will.
Which yeah tends to be fairly dynamic
Yeah, it looks like, it looks very strong.
Yeah whatever it is, it’s very
strong. It’s no… is very strong
Wow. Oh wow. And should we have a look at the
U.S. chart? Let’s have a look at the U.S. chart.
Okay. Well did you want to have a look
at the Sibley first? Because I know that you
were interested in the eclipse that happened before that.
Sure. Yeah, we can just do that quickly.
Give the viewers a quick chance at looking
at the Sibley chart. You can always look at it…
I did a article on, or a blog, that’s what you
say or call them now… a blog on the Sibley
chart and the houses. So you can see that the
ascendant for the Sibley chart is at 12 degrees
Sagittarius it’s… it’s important
to note that the eclipse that happens…
that happened the before the… the eclipse
preceding the Aries ingress, all right, that’s
what we’re looking at… is the exact same degree
as the United States. Now we didn’t see the
eclipse here in the United States, so they say
that it doesn’t really make a big difference
however with… when planets line up exactly to the
degree and to the minutes, that’s so hard to say
yeah, that doesn’t make any… that doesn’t, that’s not
going to mean anything. It just the planets just
typically don’t do that, if… when they line up to
by degree and by minute it’s pretty significant.
So that’s the only reason I wanted to mention
that is because. I think too, the other point that…
you might want to point out is that the ruler of
that Sag rising in that eclipse is conjoined the
Moon which is the people and of course the
ascendant is the people, right. Yeah and
yeah, so the mobility. the you know
the constraints that the pandemic has
put on over the last couple of
years… yeah that dynamic it’s
yeah, it’s very reflect, very reflective. Yeah yeah,
people want to be mobile again, thank you very much.
Yes, well let’s have a look at the actual… So this
is the eclipse chart which is something that
you would want to look at that was the preceding
one this is going to be this is just the regular
ingress chart. So starting with the first house
in this chart, this would be describing the
health of the country. the United States,
signified by Mercury in the top of the chart
in the 10th house. A very active part of
the of the chart. Anywhere on the angles
this is going to be a very active house. in the
second half… in the second house reflective of
our finances is signified by the Moon. The Moon is
in at 29 degrees where it is sitting right now is
what we call the via combust and that is an area
where there’s a whole mess of really bad stars
that the astrologers from way back in the
Babylonian time said that, were, when the Moon’s were
right there, really, nothing really comes good
of it. And 29 degrees on any house is going to
mean that people are or the situation is ready
to change so that’s how the finances are.
The community, signified by the in the third
house is signified by the Sun in the house and
it’s in a good house. I’s in tradition what do
we call it? It’s the house of good spirit so
hopefully, we can keep our spirits up. In the
fourth house run by Mercury is as well.
it’s descriptive of our agriculture. It’s also
descriptive of the, all… of both political parties
both opposing parties and it seems like they’re on
board with what our leader is trying to accomplish.
The fifth house as I said before, it is the house
of Venues and people getting together. Music
halls would be one of those things and here
in the, in it’s… it’s more of it’s still besieged.
No matter, no matter what part you’re going to
look at. Any time you have a chart that’s
the house that’s run by Venus it is besieged right
now. There is, we’re not real happy right now and
and that is very descriptive of what’s going on.
The sixth house has to do with our military,
our navy and it is run by Scorpio and that is
one of the besiegers of Venus. But doesn’t seem like,
he doesn’t have a whole lot of strength
right there. So it’s not, it’s not like
ready to ready to shoot out anything but it’s
just kind of holding back. The Sagittarius, the
seventh house, that would be the person of the
people who we are opposing and that is also in
the 10th house, pretty much conjunct
Mercury. So we’ll see how that goes. In
the eighth house, the house of the world
finances, those seem to be a little bit on the
see where where our footing is. I know with Brexit,
all those financial things are all kind of
changing and I think a lot of the financial
world markets are going to be changing. 11
or no, the ninth house is the house of the higher
education, the foreigners or foreign matters with
there’s a besiegement in foreign matters to us. It,
that shows, it… it screams it right off the chart.
The 10th house is signified by our leader. It
also has the judges in there. It has a little
bit… we’re not quite sure what’s going on. As well as
Neptune in there. The 11th house is where
our… the people who aid our President or our leader,
which is the president, and that has the Sun in it.
It’s Aries, it’s Mars. It is also doing the
besieging and then we come back down to the 12th
house, where we could have, I think that’s where the
wild card is going to be. That’s Uranus is in there
right now. Uranus is that planet of, you know, look
at this. It’s new. It’s the house of prisons
and… Espionage. Isolated, yeah yeah underhanded
things as well can be there or are unknown helpers
could be there. That is the chart for
the Aries ingress for the United States
as I see it. What do you guys think? Well one of
the comments that I would make that, you know, again
this chart just rotates in different countries,
is the fact that Mercury is not in a good way
in Pisces. So, you know, getting the straight
answer on anything or agreeing on anything
is not going to come from logic. It’ll
come from shared vibe or shared beliefs
being it’s in Pisces. But if you’re looking for…
in a country that has this on the 10th, for there
to be rational discourse through the government…
yeah, give that up. That’s probably not gonna be…
I think it’s interesting though too in the U.S.
with that besiegement happening in the ninth that,
you know, the old adage that, you know, the
West or that NATO are going to, you know, leap in
and save, protect, be the policeman of
the world. Yeah, not so much. Not happening.
Right? They’re standing on the outside watching
Russia beat the hell out of the Ukraine and
that so speaks to that Venus being besieged.
Which is, it’s… It’s a tricky thing that NATO
really is… yeah, yeah, can’t have one
person running the whole entire world
because they’re not gonna please everybody
and it’s just messy. Lynda, what do you think?
Yeah, I don’t really know. I mean, I look at that
Jupiter as being like Biden and the administration
and then the republicans being the Mercury.
You’ve got mid-term elections coming up i believe
later this year. So, I suppose that could
be indicative of… indicative of it…
that Jupiter is certainly stronger,
so I would think that the Democrats stay in but
it might be close with Mercury so close to
Jupiter there. I mean, i know it’s in fall and
in detriment but it’s still very close
and it’s, you know, ironically Jupiter feels some
sort of obligation to Mercury because it’s in its
sign. So, not necessarily saying the Democrats feel
any obligation to the Republicans but it’s just
interesting astrologically. That’s something
that you could take into consideration. So
I don’t know. Maybe if it does come to war I
just thought it was really interesting that the
11th house of allies is part of that besiegement
and then, what is Saturn ruling? Saturn is ruling
the eighth and the ninth. Yeah, it’s… I don’t
know. Do you want to see the Libra ingress?
Libra ingress, yes, because yeah, because this
one’s only going to last for six months. So…
So you’re actually Venus in this chart.
Right. It’s in the fifth house, the
house of pleasure and fun things.
I don’t know exactly how… how pleasurable the…
the President’s gonna be feeling in six months
but hopefully, we will. Our finances might
have a bit of a charge with Mars in there.
Mars in the second house, I’ve heard
it said, is spend spend spend. Yeah yeah
Yeah, it’s, well it’s that drive. Mars
is that drive to, you know, get things
done. So if it’s spending and finance then
that’s what it’s doing. Yeah, the Moons’ in the
the fourth house not really a positive place
but there is a lot of action in that house.
It’s one of the pivots so i believe that the
people will be having a little bit more mobility
than they did, in the fifth house even. I think it’s
interesting that that Venus is in the fifth
which is the house of her joy but she’s…is she
in detriment or fall there? She’s in fall. She’s
in fall. Yeah ,so she’s not in the best
condition and then she’s opposed by Neptune.
So, a little bit of, kind of, maybe, I don’t know…
maybe people like you said… you’ve got that Mars
in the second kind of spending money that, you
know, they might not have. People kind of like
living beyond their means but kind of like, you
know, we’ve been locked down for so long and they
want to get out and have fun and, you know.
I also see that, you know, that with the Moon in the
fourth that can be endings and then having, you
know, the Sun in the sixth and Jupiter opposing it
that the president could be going through a
physical moment. Where the, you know, all the eyes
of the people turn to… oh he’s old is he gonna…?
Yeah. Yeah. Yeah well it’s interesting too that
that Mercury is retrograde and like… uh-huh…
towards each other. And Jupiter does rule the eighth
house of death…so. And it’s in the twelfth house,
not a good, not…. this is not good for the ruler.
No, no. No, it isn’t, sorry
Could be challenging,. Yeah.
And that Pluto, way up on the MC too. Yeah. Up in Capricorn.
So shall we have a look at Canada?
Yes, yes. Yes. Okay, so here we
have uh the Canadian chart. Just as a sidebar,
in terms of quadrant house systems Porphyry is one
that equally divides between the angles into
the sections and that’s how that works. You do get
intercepted signs and in this particular case
what’s kind of sad about the interception, is the
fact that we lose out on the beneficence of
Jupiter in the sixth but I’ll get to that.
Okay, so we have Cancer rising which puts a huge
focus on on the folks in Canada and they
are down there in the fifth house of… oh God,
please, can we come back to something normal?!…
Having that Moon in that anaretic degree or
the last degree and it’s squaring Pluto…I
agree with what has already been said with some
of the other charts that this is in a state of
flux and which is probably a good thing.
You know, people are really tired of the lockdowns
and of the lack of social mobility which
that fifth house is, of course, all about.
So our second house though is also ruled by
that Cancer and the speculation in terms of
the possibility of there being an increase in
interest rates is something that I think a lot
of Canadians are going “la, la, la, la” about because
our debt ratio is incredibly high and if there is
a increase in the interest rates there’s
going to be a lot of people that are in trouble.
And that, unfortunately, is mirrored as well by
the fact that the ruler of that Moon, Venus is
besieged. Oh damn. That’s in,… so ergo, I was saying
this is not a happy chart and so we could be… the
common person could be very much challenged in
this next three months, if the interest rates go up.
Okay we go to the third house and I found this
incredibly interesting because, of course, it’s
ruled by that Sun. The Sun is still in the
10th house and gee… would that be convoys
trying to make a big hoo-ha? We might not be done
with convoys plaguing our Prime Minister.
Unfortunately. Yeah. His ability to
communicate to all of the country, in a country the
size of Canada has always been an issue and
yeah I’ll be speaking a little bit more on that
when we get up there to the tenth house. So the
fourth house, which is ruled by that Mercury, not
a good thing. Not a good thing. You know Mercury
is not happy. Yes, it is approaching Jupiter but
do we have the faith/energetic connectivity
to maintain our agricultural systems when we’re
faced with, you know, global weather changes? You
know the droughts and stuff that have happened
in Canada in the last few seasons have put into
question our ability to produce food and, of
course, we’re just way too reliant on food coming
from all over the world. So I don’t see that as
kind of a hopeful sign. The other thing that, of
course, it speaks to, is real estate and you
know, if the prices get any higher… I don’t know.
It’s, I… my heart goes out to the young people…
How you are ever supposed to be able to manage a
million-dollar home on a basic income? Right? Insane.
Okay, so we’ve already talked about the fifth.
The fact that it’s ruled by a besieged Venus.
You know, playing is going to be optional, if
it happens at all. Okay. So sixth house Scorpio
ruled by that Mars and like has already been
previously said, Mars is not strong in Aquarius and
it’s… I’m not entirely sure how badly it’s going
to impact our services. Whether that’s, you know
the medical or the social services. You know,
it is a time right now where people want their
individual needs met in the way they want them.
Which is a nice idea but, you know, it’s still
a collective thing and we’re not going to get the
support we might have wanted from Jupiter because
that Sag is intercepted. So, again, not really
a happy camper spot. So, moving up to the 7th,
you know, how well do we work with our foreign
counterparts? You know, where, we are not a power,
in quotes. As I commonly talk about, we have,
you know, like three guys in uniform and one tank
and one airplane, whatever. We’re a pretty tiny
military, and you know, this is, we’ve got the
right idea. We’ve got Saturn and Aquarius in the
ninth. I mean, we have, you know, strong ideas about
our role and what it should be but yeah… we
don’t really have anything to pull it off with.
So, the eighth. Having Pluto there is a bit
concerning from my point of view.
It’s the trade scenario being so closely tied
to what is the big powerhouse that lives below
us, the U.S. It will, depending on how that runs
in the States, it will have a very big impact and
so we will be rooting for the U.S. economy to be
healthy because, yeah… We appreciate your support.
Well, we, you and I, are the biggest trading
partners we each have, so… Yeah. So having
the judiciary and that, with that little
besieged piece in there… my suspicion is
that it up here in Canada anyway, the judiciary
is probably hit the biggest wall it’s ever hit
with all of the protest stuff and
all the people locked up and we don’t have
a big functioning judiciary so my suspicion is
there’s a lot of people going to wait a long time
before they come to trial. Yeah. So 10th house.
Now, we’ve got Pisces up there so I mean that
is just screaming the fact that we need to
have faith. That we can get through these times
but we have to have faith that, you
know, I would say that it’s realistic.
Except, yeah, that’s not there. Mercury in its
fall and it’s in its detriment and so trust and
faith is what both the government and the people
need to have. What’s interesting though, that
also speaks to the fact that our various
political parties are in disarray right now.
The conservative party or in U.S. speak would
be our Republican side, they’re going through a
leadership review. The green party, which was
part of, you know the environmental support,
it’s in disarray. The Liberals are unfortunately…
we’ve got a… our leader has… are you ready for
this? Has saturn in Gemini on the 10th and
it’s a night chart. Nice. Not nice. Yeah no, not nice.
Unfortunately, the punman-ship that most
people see Trudeau as being adjust upon
that’s an image that’s pretty hard to shake.
When you’ve got Saturn in Gemini on the 10th yeah.
Not good. Not good.
Well it’s, he does misspeak a lot. Which
is unfortunate for a leader of a country.
Most leaders when they submit their ballot
they are, their application for voting
they should submit their birth
chart as well. Is that what you’re saying?
One would consider it would
be important. Yes, yes one would.
Okay, so 11th house. Again, not in
really good shape with your Uranus there.
A surprise. One of the things that is
in contention of course with leadership
is the self-governance piece which… a
lot of Canadians are in support of that are
indigenous people, and I think the Uranus speaks
to just how much power the indigenous people are
rising up with. Which I consider myself, a good
thing. And then, of course, you go to the 12th house,
secret enemies. They’re going to just have a
field day with us. Venus is besieged. You know
we were for a while, and I don’t know if it’s
been… we were the place to launder dirty money
because our banking systems just were not robust
enough to stop that. Yeah, so if you were
a swindler of the, you know buckets of money, like
Russian oligarchs… Yeah, I’m just thinking maybe
they’ll be making their way there soon. Well, I’m
sure they they probably already are here. I don’t
know if our banking system has improved but
this does not bode well on that level. Yeah so
only three months though. It’s got to change. What’s
the next one? Let’s have a look at the Cancer one.
Cancer ingress. Yes. Yeah, so this one,
in theory, will last uh six months. I’m
really happy that there’s a change and
there’s quite a focus on the leader
with the people and so, you know, and that moon is
up there in the 10th with Jupiter. So we might
have a snap election. Wh when I saw this I went – oh
that is a distinct possibility. Yeah and with
it being ruled by Saturn, it would be limited
in terms of how much it actually changes anything.
But it definitely looks like it’s possible
that we could have an election. The piece…
what else was i going to say about this? I actually
hadn’t looked at this until you’ve pulled it up. So
again, we have our neighbors to the south,
controlling our financial conditions.
So the reason for the election is
probably inflation going out of
whack because Cancer rules the second
house and that’s that Moon Jupiter
in the top. Where people are like going bankrupt,
left, right, and center and the various level
of governments are yelling for help that would
be the 11th house having Mercury which is ruling
the ascendant in the 12th. Oh my God, this
doesn’t get better. This almost looks worse.
Gosh, yeah. there is… Yeah, that Venus is in
Taurus. Yeah but that’s the 12th house this
is… Yeah, I know. Yeah, I mean it is a, it’s a
strong Mars it’s… and I would say that
Jupiter is probably pretty strong in Aries.
You know, it’s trine to its own rulership.
Yeah but in that Aries ingress
chart for everyone the moon is
square, is it Pluto? Yeah, it’s square and it’s
in that final degree. So we’re not… it doesn’t
matter where you are on the planet.
Exactly, just inflation’s just sky-high for everyone.
Yeah yeah yeah. Unfortunately.
Yeah, so I think that’s that. I’ve said enough (cat meows)
I’ll go in… Yes, your cat is there.
Well, let’s have a look at the Australian one
and because we have Aquarius, I said Leo, I believe at the start, but it’s Aquarius
on the ascendant, which is a fixed sign, this
chart is valid for the whole year. So we
have Saturn ruling the country and just the
general state of it. It is in its own sign.
Yeah, we’ve got the Moon up here in the
10th house and we are due to have an election,
probably about May. I don’t think it’s been called yet. So yeah.
The people will decide but they
they’ll find it hard to decide
because that Venus is besieged.
Yeah, it’s really super interesting.
It’s like which country’s got the worst chart.
Well, our Prime Minister isn’t very popular with
a lot of people. You know, and it’s like we had
the bushfires a couple of years ago and he was in
trouble because he went on holiday to Hawaii and
then just things with the roll out of the
vaccinations and we’ve recently just had
floods here in Queensland, where I live and in
Northern New South Wales and there’s been some
bungling with that as well. So, a lot of people are
really angry but a lot of people don’t like the
opposition either. So, it’d be, I think it’s going
to be a close call because the opposition is Mars
and the current leader is Venus and Venus
is besieged yeah, but you know they’re both…
Yeah, you’re right, I think it’ll be as like almost
like a stalemate where nothing really improves.
Well, I wonder if we’re not going to have like a
bit of a stalemate, like, you know, we literally have
to go to the Independents to decide, you know, and
they go to the Independents in the Senate and say –
“well, if, you know, if you come on our side,
give your vote to us, we’ll do this for you and
your particular little party”. So, who might
be affecting, who might that Pluto in the 12th be?
I really don’t know. That does
not look good. Pluto in the 12th. No
Yeah, so how much effect does China have in Australia?
We’re in trouble with China and
actually, our Prime Minister and, I think it’s us and the Netherlands have just decided to sue
Russia for some plane that was shot down, so. Oh God.
You know, I mean jump on board. So, yeah it’s kind of
like we’re down below. Nobody knows we’re there a
lot of the time. They forget about us but you know
they’re kind of like – “hey we’re over here!”
Well it looks like somebody wants to have some influence
in your state of affairs with that Pluto in the 12th.
Yeah, so it would be interesting. It
also could be the exposure of the way you handle
the whole refugee thing. Which, I know, there’s been
a few documentaries series on it. It
doesn’t look like you do that really well.
So that could be the that coming out to light.
Coming to light. Yeah, could very well be and
yeah, even it’s very strange. I mean like you
see on the news about people going over to fight
in Ukraine and I don’t know about now but I know
as of a week or so ago it was still like, you know,
if you go over there to fight for Ukraine, well
you know, you’ll probably be arrested when you come
back. And I mean, really, we’ve had a strange
couple of years too, because we’ve only just, since
I think maybe March… February, March been allowed
to travel again. Right. You could for extraordinary
circumstances but most people, we couldn’t travel
for two years. We were more or less locked down.
Yeah, it’s very strange. So yes, but a lot
of planets in the first. A couple in the
second. Yeah, probably inflation there yeah.
Nothing rational happening with your money.
So, yeah, with the fourth, Uranus, Yeah, I really
don’t know. The fourth is climate too. Yeah yeah.
With our country, I mean bushfires. Like I said,
we’ve had floods that they’re saying are like
you know…. 300 years. They’re talking about, you know,
really extreme floods. I mean, we’re starting to get
kind of earthquakes in certain places too. I mean
it’s not a big thing over here but – hey we’ve got
Uranus there. Who knows. Yes. Do you have the April
30th eclipse chart for Australia? Yeah.
Just hold on. The only reason I’m asking is because
you’ve got that Uranus in the fourth house and…… Oh
yes. I believe it is very close to that. Let me see.
Yes, because I know sometimes there’s eclipse charts
that signify earthquakes. Were you able to see
your eclipse where you were at? I’ll check that
out (just outside the eclipse zone). So that’s all in our fourth house and look at that. Yeah we’ve got that eclipse
right close to our to the ascendant of that…
Look for higher ground, honey. …eclipse chart
Yeah, you know it’s just a concern. You know, the
other thing with the eclipse, this is when it’s
falling in the earth sign or in Taurus
it says that it signifies the countries
that it will be in and the one proceeding, the one
in December fourth, um no not the one in December
fourth, the one in April it in it includes Ireland,
Poland, Russia, Asia Minor and Cyprus. The one that’s
the lunar one will be the one, and no, the one
in what’s after…? May, so the one in May is gonna…
the lunar one it’s gonna be happening in Scorpio
and those countries affected will be Algeria,
Morocco, New Orleans, Washington DC, Newfoundland, and
Queensland so that’s like….. Did you say Queensland?
Mmmhmm. That’s where I live. Be nice Donna.
Everything else was a country. Queensland’s a state.
You know, Washington too, it’s not like Texas
but yeah they do, the eclipses do signify,
focus on certain geological locations, so…
So, there you go, earthquake for Queensland
Or it could, you know, agriculturally it
could happen, you know. You could have,
you could have poisonings. You could have bad seeds.
You could have, you could have a lot of things go
wrong agriculturally. Well, this was really, this
is really quite soon. We’ve just had these floods
and like a lot of, like roads are collapsing sort
of thing because we had so much rain for so long
you know. And it’s been dry for a week or
so now but, yeah we had all that rain so
it’s quite possible that some structures are
not as sound as they should be. It could be
maybe a collapse. I suppose that would be more
Saturn though, collapse of buildings and that but….
but yeah. Stay tuned! Uranus is quite fast. It’s more of a shocking kind of a thing
but yes, all things to watch for sure for this
year coming up with all the countries with
with Venus being so besieged. It’s in all the
countries, everybody has to deal with
that constraint that we… that restriction that… yeah
And shall we have a look at the U.K? Oh, yes.
You guys, that would be good because that’s
where we’re all from.
So, is that the leader in the eighth house of death?
But that could be Boris Johnson getting
punted because he’s not been a good boy.
No, no, no he hasn’t. Interesting
too that we’ve got the North Node
up here with the MC. I wondered, like,
it could be, you know, well it’s obviously
bringing an exclamation point to that very
visibility but I mean they’re having their big
jubilee year hopefully… Maybe not. …if she can hold
on for a little longer. Venus besieged. I’ll show you
I’ll show you the next one, because I think
the next one is more indicative of something
but this is this one for now. Yeah so for the
sixth house they’ve got that besiegement there
That’s the strength of their military as well as their…
The tenth house ruler thing not looking
good. Venus rules that. Yeah, no, not good and it’s
also finances, or is it? Is that Libra intercepted?
No, no, Venus rules the third. So that’s the common people. So the
common people are not happy. They’re not happy
with their mobility, their infrastructure,
like yeah, road systems and all of that,
communication, and so how are their finances?
Finances are Mercury. Yeah, so they’re confused.
We can make this a real short video. Nobody
knows what’s going on and everybody’s besieged.
Nobody’s going anywhere.
I don’t know if they’re coming
up for elections anytime soon but if they are you
know Boris would be that Venus. Yes, yeah and
he would get punted. The opposition would be that
Mars. So, again, that kind of could be a really close
race but i don’t know; maybe it’s not even an issue.
Yeah, you know, maybe it’s not an election
year there. I’m not sure. And that help from
Jupiter is not there because Jupiter is again intercepted.
And then we have the Libra ingress, so..
Oh, she’s in this… So you’ve got Mars…
Well, she might still be alive then.
We’ve got this Uranus up
here in the tenth though, with
that North Node. I thought something really
shocking… because I think, you know,
it’s still going to be a bit of a shock. Not a
shock but I think people are still going to be
like – it’s an end of an era, if and when it does happen.
It’s squaring, it’s squaring Saturn.
Hmm, what? Sorry. That’s Uranus… Well, in the fall, we
get that final square of Saturn Uranus yeah. With
Mars dancing in Gemini, which is intercepted,
meaning we’re not… it’ll be behind the scenes.
Won’t be out there, invisible.
Yeah, not… again, not a strong chart.
That Mars ruled by a swallowed-up Mercury
that is retrograde. Yeah, Venus is in its fall.
Yeah, the Moon doesn’t particularly like being
in Leo. Trade might be okay. Saturn and Aquarius.
They might hold their own in terms of trade.
Pluto in the sixth isn’t good but i mean it’s not…
mind you, sometimes those trines and sextiles just
make it easier for them to get up to mischief… Yeah
…other than helping. Yeah. No, they’re, your trines
and sextiles don’t indicate anything necessarily
good or bad. It’s, yeah, it’s just how quickly
it happens, yeah. Yeah, the ease of it. Yeah. Yeah.
So that Sun opposite Jupiter…
And it’s ruled by an earth trine. Yeah there is a practical
trine in there. Yeah, something in here that was
indicative… it might have been looking at, or
maybe it was Elizabeth’s chart itself. Well, she
is a Taurus. So, you know, having the eclipses fall
on her, yeah, on her in a very personal way.
This is a total lunar eclipse. Okay, so oh that’s, that
that’s that eclipse. It’s really close to Uranus
at the time. Happening over, all happening over
her fifth and eleventh house. It’s a lunar
eclipse so it tends to be about endings
but the fifth house… Can you swap?
Not sure how this goes in your own natal chart, but the fifth is
the eighth from the tenth. So, it can be the death
of the king, but I think that’s more applicable
in a mundane chart but… Yes. Yeah. Not in a natal chart.
But Leo does rule her eighth house so, yeah
Jupiter coming up to that, well…
yeah coming back to that Uranus.
Is that 29 degrees? Yeah. Okay, that’s, yeah…
The transiting Saturn, right on her Mars.
And so, in terms of…
Yeah, no, this isn’t a solar revolution, I was
going to say if it was then you’ve got… when
you repeat the angles the natal promise comes
to the fore. But this is not the solar revolution.
Yeah, no this is… I’ve got, actually I can pull up
her solar revolution. We’ll do the nearest
one because she’s… when’s her birthday?
It’s very soon, she’s zero degrees
Taurus isn’t she? That’s her natal chart and
the solar return. So, the eighth house is rising.
She’s got Saturn on her Jupiter.
Jupiter on that Uranus.
Venus is back to itself.
Oh yes. Well the IC with the Moon,
that’s probably not a good thing.
In the 8th.
Yeah, in the 8th.
And then she’s got the solar return
ascendant ruler in the solar return 12th,
conjunct Uranus. Mind you, you know, like
I said it’s not like it would be shocking,
No, it wouldn’t be. I wouldn’t think so.
It’s kind of morbid. I know, I know. I kind of hope like she kicks
around for a while yet. You know, so the other
place that you will see the death of a parent
is of course in a child’s chart. So, the next
.would be king for like two months, Charles,
it would show up in his chart. In his solar return.
Yeah, I think he’s a Scorpio, isn’t he?
I can’t remember. There we go. So there’s
Prince Charles. Oh, there it is. So, sixth house
matters. So ,that’s his, you know, sixth house
will be his job, right. As being of service, yeah.
Plus his health. I mean, he, you know, yeah,
he doesn’t look that healthy sometimes.
Mercury Uranus is interesting.
So his moon
is in at 29 degrees in the eighth
house. That’s mommy. In the eighth house.
Neptune really close that ascendant too.
So, it’s all about mom, but
she is in the eighth house, so
yeah, and ruling his 12th. So, yeah it could be
the end of an era. Jupiter is squaring his Sun
and it rules that eighth house.
Obviously, that Mars Jupiter has not been
really kind to him.
Or the Neptune Venus.
For his natal chart? Yeah.
Yeah, he’s never appeared very effectual.
Yes, the IC of the solar return up on the
his natal Uranus in the 11th.
So, yeah. Yeah, well it that could be.
telling – Moon in the eighth. In the last degree. Yeah
And she may step down, right? She very well might.
Actually, yes that’s something that did occur to
me… and because that would be shocking because
that’s always been the thing that she would never
abdicate or whatever she wouldn’t step down…
because you know it was such a big drama when
Edward VIII did it and yeah…
Actually, that could very well be it. Yep
It would be smart. I mean, come on….
Yeah, well yeah, she’s very… I mean she’s going to be 96
Yeah. So, she’d be going into her first house.
So she’d be also coming up to or has she already gone
through her third Saturn return? She’s probably
gone through it. Yeah. Yeah. Wow, that’s weird
Give the job up honey.
Enjoy the last… Yeah …. few years
Oh she could have another 10 years or more
Absolutely, absolutely. She was a strong lady. I
mean she drove the odd ambulance during the war,
really got into it. So, yeah, hopefully
she steps down and enjoys it.
Yeah, no. Good for her and I hope she
at least gets to celebrate the Jubilee
and that you know, that would be nice.
Yeah, yeah because she has worked at it.
And it’d be nice for the country too I think. Yeah
Yes. Well yeah, so that’s what we saw in the
ingress charts. Be interesting to see what happens
going forward and if we got anything right.
So… And Moreen, where can people find you?
If you go to www.cardinalastrology.ca
and I’m on YouTube and apparently
gonna be like… yeah crowding out Instagram
if I get to it. I’ve got over 124 taped
episodes that one can find on my website. I
do a radio show, so yeah. They’re all on Spotify too!
And they are all on Spotify. Wow. I know.
Oh, that’s what I was going to ask you. Didn’t you do
an episode on your podcast recently about,
that covered some of the Aries ingress as well?
Actually, we didn’t really get to it because
what I hadn’t realized is that Jill has often
used Aries ingress charts in people’s charts.
I’d never heard of that and so we actually
looked at a few of those. Now what I covered
in that particular episode myself was Black Moon
Lilith, which is one of those rabbit holes that
you can go down but in my own personal case I’m
glad I did because Black Moon Lilith is conjunct
my debilitated Mars and added another nuance to
my understanding of myself. It was good actually.
We might have to get you to come
back and tell us all about it.
That’s a possibility, sure. That would be fun.
And what about you Donna? Where can we reach you?
