SARS in China - the astrology chart of the outbreak

The astrological signature of SARS

- Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome -

The atypical pneumonia, SARS, is the most important infectious outbreak issue of this year.

The first case of SARS is known to have occurred in the province of Guangdong, China, in Foshan City on November 16, 2002.

The chart set for noon, for that day, is very expressive - it may be considered as the astrological signature of the disease.

Mercury is the planet that signifies the lungs - therefore we take it as the main significator of the disease.

  • Mercury is in Scorpio - SARS is highly lethal illness.

  • Mercury is combust by the Sun - SARS is an acute infectious and inflammatory disease (a pneumonia) that begins with fever above 38 C. This is also shown by the Sun-Uranus square which leads to violent reactions of the body and even to a quick death.

  • Mercury is in very tight applying square with Uranus, only 12 minutes orb - this is why SARS is an atypical pneumonia, a very rapidly aggravating infectious disease.

  • Mercury's anticia (6 Aquarius) is a very sensitive point whose Sabian symbol tells about the real situation of this disease: "A MASKED FIGURE PERFORMS RITUALISTIC ACTS IN A MYSTERY PLAY. Everything is not quite as it seems at the moment. You may find that you are not being shown the true face of the situation." This symbol tells us what really happened: the source country of the disease, China, denied its existence and then its gravity and extension, trying to cover up the whole story.

It is interesting to note the transits of the planets to this chart and their relationship with the evolution of the disease.

Jupiter's opposition to chart's Neptune was the stimulus to the expansion of the infectious outbreak in the world. Radix (chart's) Neptune is at 8 Aqu 24. Jupiter went retrograde and then had its direct station at 8 Leo 04, being in opposition to radix Neptune within 3 degrees of orb, from mid-February until mid-May. This is

Mercury is also related to the evolution of SARS: two days after Mercury went retrograde (which was on Apr 26), Vietnam was the first country in the world to announce the containing of the disease.

China and SARS

In the chart on the below we can see the astrological chart for China inside and the transits to it on Nov 16, 2002 outside.

Inside: China chart (inside planets and houses)
Oct 1, 1948, 3:01:30 PM CCT, Beijing, China
Outside: First SARS case chart
(outside planets)
Nov 16, 2002, noon, Foshan, China

It is amazing to see how tight is the orb between the pneumonia significators: the Mercury-Sun conjunction in Scorpio is conjunct China's MC, while partile squaring Uranus of SARS chart.

This shows how SARS brought China and its policy in the spotlight of the media.

The target planet in China's chart is obviously the sixth house ruler, the Moon, as it relates to the health of the population.

Guess what: transiting Pluto is squaring the natal Moon at only 4 minutes, which, apart from releasing this atypical pneumonia outbreak, brought up to the surface the innermost fears of the Chinese people, with the start of a SARS phobia. It is one of the hardest transits to a natal chart with forced radical changes in the subconscious.
