    Great article, Nina. For Spain, the Moon-Saturn conjunction falls in the 7th, so it will work strongly as well here, although with other implications than in the USA…
    Interesting times ahead!

      The 7th house is interesting; I wonder if it would affect Spain’s situation with respect to the refugee crisis, or the EU. Also, keep an eye on unusually cold weather.

      Kind regards,

    Hello Nina,

    I don’t understand why “when Venus is afflicted, the old authorities said that the year would be particularly good for women or engagements in general.” What is the reasoning behind this?

    With kind regards

      That should say “not particularly good for women or engagements.” I fixed it now.

      Kind regards,

    I’m really, really worried about that Moon – Saturn conjunction. The sect light applying within minutes to out-of-sect malefic – no good. No good at all.

    I expect austerity, damage to healthcare for women and children, and yet more corrosive ideological extremism. It’s in the house of King; clearly the US is in for some nasty presidential malfeasance.

      I agree it’s concerning, GMH. Someone on Facebook drew my attention to a similar feature of the 1945 Aries Ingress, which had the Moon conjunct Saturn in Cancer on the MC. It’s worth a look.

      Kind regards,

        Hi Nina,

        How would you read that conjunction in Cancer? Saturn is in really bad shape there, but is that mitigated by its reception from the Moon?

        In Berlin, that conjunction fell in the 8th. It had straightforward implications for houses two, three, and eight. There was mass death (obviously), and Germany went into extreme debt, owing reparations to their neighbor states and the Allies.

          I don’t think the Moon benefits at all by receiving Saturn, because Saturn has entered the Moon’s domicile. I see it as harmful to the Moon. It’s like inviting the vampire into your home 🙂

          Very interesting about the conjunction occurring in the 8th house – goes to show that it would have an impact even in places where it wasn’t angular.

          Kind regards,

    Could the scandal Trump is facing be part of this?

      Perhaps – it could certainly indicate difficulties for the person in charge.

    Hi Nina,

    The UK general election is tomorrow. Their Ingress had Cancer rising. I’m almost certain that the Torys will win re-election. The 10th has that exalted Sun, and the significator of Labour is Venus, which is in terrible condition in Aries.

    Also, that Moon-Saturn conjunction is in their 6th, which indicates bad things for the NHS. Tomorrow is has a Full Moon with Saturn in Sag.


    (P.S: I don’t care at all that you got the Trump thing wrong. Every expert in every discipline gets things wrong sometimes. Besides, it was a tricky chart.)

      Hi GMH,

      I don’t know much about the General Election in the UK and its connection to the Ingress, as it’s not something I have studied. I have noticed that the Tories have a penchant for calling important elections/referenda near the direct station of superior planets, recently with surprising (to them) results.

      It’s generous of you to mention last year’s election; I am as accurate or inaccurate as I ever was. These things are a good reminder that one is human, after all.

    Hello Nina – I am curious about what decan system you are using. I’ve looked at Chaldaen, traditional and Manilius’s decans and none of these systems have the third decan being ruled by Venus. Love that you are publishing magical elections. Thank you for your work.

      This comment was meant for the Magical election of June 27th and I was referring to the decans of Taurus. My comment ended up here under the Aries ingress post somehow.

    As venus doesn´t aspect the ASC, maybe you should consider Jupiter which is in antiscia.
