China along with everywhere else is experiencing economic pain of unprecedented levels because of the virus. Though indications are it may fare marginally better than some countries.
The 1 October 1949 3.15pm chart is surprisingly light on information, apart from the restrictive Saturn Pluto conjunction bearing down on the 12th house Jupiter till late year. There will be aggravation from 2021 to 2023 with tr Uranus square the 7th house Mars, then Pluto and opposition the Venus – which could be trouble with neighbours as well as finances from Venus.
The 1 January 1912 Republic chart is more informative with a devastating tr Pluto opposition Neptune and in a high-risk and frustrating trine to Mars this year, extending into 2021. With the Solar Arc Sun conjunct the North Node and in a ‘shock’ square to the Uranus this year. 2022 looks especially stressed and unstable with tr Pluto conjunct the Uranus and a Solar Arc Neptune opposition Saturn – though that could also coincide with a massive natural disaster. Uranus Neptune on this chart is prone to earthquakes. Tr Pluto is in the turbulent, revolutionary conjunction to the China 1912 Uranus through 2023 as well. It’s likely to be a challenging and critical time for China.
Xi Jinping first took over as President on 14 March 2013 at 11.51 am which was when a Jupiterian Yod was in place inconjunct Saturn sextile Pluto – hinting at grandiose plans ahead, rooted in repression from Saturn Pluto. That chart hints at ructions in 2021 with tr Uranus opposition Saturn, on one leg of the Yod, as well as an undermining tr Neptune conjunct the Term Sun. Similarly uncertain influences will affect his 2nd Term chart, 24 October 2017 12.30 pm with tr Saturn square the Sun, Jupiter and Mercury over coming months into 2021; at the same time as a panicky and uncertain tr Neptune square Moon and Saturn in 2020/21. And major upheaval from tr Pluto square the Uranus in 2021/22.
His own chart, 15 June 1953, has parallel influences with his Gemini Sun catching the tr Neptune square in 2021; and his Solar Arc Uranus squaring his Sun in 2022 for a major jolt.
No country is going to escape the post-virus trauma.
