The Upcoming 30-day Venus-Mars Planetary War

By Edith Hathaway© 2022

A 30-day Planetary War (Graha Yuddha) between tr. Venus and tr. Mars brings a Venus-Mars effect that lingers well beyond Valentine’s Day.  And though the conquest of hearts and minds is implied, it is not just the passion of love and sex that is aroused, but the passion and urgency to take action when it appears that all else has failed.  Even the Chinese New Year on Feb. 1st highlights themes of power and rebellion at the start of the Year of the Tiger. 

All manner of competitive situations come to mind.   War drums are beating for a conflict between Russia and the Ukraine, protests worldwide reflect the ongoing conflict between citizens and autocratic politicians over Covid vax mandates, and the Olympic Games have a unique blend of athletic and political competition in and of themselves. The upcoming Winter Olympics in Beijing also reflect much underlying controversy between Nationalists and Globalists.  Is China a friend or a foe?  Top Globalists make enormous amounts of money in China and do not want to see that end.  But most of the people do not benefit from this arrangement.  In the U.S. most of the population now owns only 5% of the nation’s wealth and they have been losing more and more constitutional rights to Globalist policies that favor Communist China well above the United States.

With national pride at the forefront in each case, whether national sovereignty or personal sovereignty is at stake, we have the supreme irony of U.S. Vice President Kamala Harris, America’s “Border Czar” declaring that she respects “the sovereignty and territorial integrity” of the Ukraine. She says the U.S. will take “aggressive action” if there is an incursion by Russia.  Meanwhile, she completely ignores the roughly 3 million illegal immigrants who have invaded the U.S. southern border (along with Chinese-made opioids and unprecedented human trafficking) in just one year of the Biden regime’s Open Border policy.

Venus & Mars in Planetary War (Graha Yuddha)

Transiting Venus and Mars will be within one degree of each other for a total of 30 days in February-March 2022, first in sidereal Sagittarius from Feb. 11 to 26, 2022, then in sidereal Capricorn from Feb. 27 to March 12, 2022.  On Feb. 26 they are briefly in adjacent signs.  According to Vedic astrology classics, when two planets (but only Mars, Mercury, Venus, Jupiter, and/or Saturn) are within one degree of celestial longitude from each other in the same zodiacal sign or in adjacent signs, they are in Graha Yuddha (Planetary War).

One of these two planets wins the war and the other is conquered and diminished.  In my research of over 25 years, I have determined that Venus wins over Mars most of the time.   Click here to learn the background on what planet wins the battle and why.  This is a complex matter, as it may look like Mars wins.  After all, Mars is the Planet of War and is predisposed to fight, but in fact it does lose most of the time and it appears to lose especially badly in signs of the zodiac that it owns.  Similarly, with Mars in Capricorn, there is a particular irony, as Mars is exalted here and expected to be extra powerful.  But as with all cases when Mars is involved in a Graha Yuddha it fights especially obsessively and refuses to surrender.  When battling Venus, there is a certain vision and political orientation that Venus has. And in Capricorn, that orientation relates to business, status, and financial success above all.

We will cover a few notable events during this unusually lengthy Graha Yuddha period Feb. 11 to March 12, 2022.  And to give them context we look at some related events in the weeks leading up to the 30-day period.  Below is a short list of key events during the Venus-Mars Graha Yuddha. We will analyze them shortly, chart by chart:

  • Feb. 4 to 20, 2022: The 2022 Winter Olympics in Beijing, China, with the Opening Ceremony Feb. 4, 2022.
  • Feb. 21, 2022: The launch of former president Donald J. Trump’s new social media platform TRUTH Social, registered under his Trump Media & Technology Group (TMTG).
  • March 1, 2022: Joe Biden’s first-ever State of the Union Address (SOTU).

Related Events in Late Jan./Early Feb. 2022

  • Jan. 23, 2022: Marches and protests against Vax mandates in Washington, D.C. as well as 180 other cities around the world.  Events like this strongly oppose the Globalists’ narrative that all Covid vaccines are “safe and effective” and must be mandated everywhere, until – as Joe Biden says – “the whole world is vaccinated.”  Countering this narrative, alarming reports on adverse results from Covid vaccines are becoming more widely known from U.S. actuarial statistics, the U.S. military, and VAERS. (VAERS = CDC’s Vaccine Adverse Events System, their official statistics, though vastly underreported).  It is also revealed that Pfizer hid clinical data showing 1300 deaths by Feb. 2021 after just 3 months of clinical vaccine trials. This alone should have stopped the vaccine rollout in early 2021.
  • Jan. 24, 2022: Dr. Robert Malone, Dr. Peter McCullough, Dr. Pierre Kory and others testify at U.S. Congressional hearings about the detrimental effects of the Covid vaccine as well as Covid vax mandates and passports.  Previously, in Dec. 2021 Dr. Peter McCullough did a 2hr. 45 min. interview on The Joe Rogan Experience (with 11 million regular viewers).  Dr. Robert Malone then did a 4-hour interview with Rogan in Jan. 2022. Following his appearance there and at the Washington, D.C. Defeat the Mandate march and speeches Jan. 23rd, Dr. Malone was attacked by The Washington Post and he is suing them for defamation.  He says he is presenting medical information about which he is supremely well qualified to speak, but WaPo and other Globalist media call it “misinformation.” Leftist musicians on Spotify threaten its owners to cancel either Joe Rogan or them.  So far Spotify stands by Joe Rogan and Neil Young withdraws his music from Spotify, as does singer Joni Mitchell. Others may follow, as Globalists put increasing pressure on both Rogan and Spotify.
  • Jan. 25, 2022: Explosive testimony by Ohio lawyer Thomas Renz before Senator Ron Johnson’s Senate Roundtable.  Using information from 3 U.S. military whistleblowers and from the U.S. military’s Defense Military Epidemiology Database (DMED), he says the information is not classified, but also not available to the general public.  It gives “indisputable” and “catastrophic data” that healthy, young, and fit members of the military are being killed or seriously injured by the Covid vaccines.  No changes in the data averages have appeared in the years up to and including 2020, but all that changed in 2021 when in Jan. 2021 all members of the military were mandated to be vaxxed.  Using a 5-year average, Renze cites an astronomical increase in illnesses up to almost 22 million!  This is an increase of 20 million illnesses across the board, or an increase of 1,135%!  Miscarriages increased by 300%, female infertility by 471%; cancer cases by 300%; heart attacks by 269%, and neurological disorders by over 1000% (from 82,000 per year to 862,000 per year), endangering pilots in particular or anyone on active military duty. And this is just a portion of the data.  Dr. Leigh Dundas: “To say we are eviscerating military readiness is an understatement.” Predictably, Globalist mainstream media did not cover this major news, which also eviscerates the need for Vax mandates anywhere.
  • Jan. 25, 2022:  Peter Schweizer’s new blockbuster book is published, Red-Handed : How American Elites Get Rich Helping China Win, “exposing the nexus of power between the Chinese government and the American elites who do its bidding.” This book’s publication shortly before the Winter Olympics in Beijing further highlights the conflicts of interest between Globalists who profess to love their country but accept China’s money and policies that put the U.S. into what used to be called a “managed decline,” but has accelerated by design into a “freefall.”
  • Jan. 29, 2022:  A “Freedom Convoy” of 50,000 trucks arrived in the Canadian capital of Ottawa.  Stretching over 40 miles long, the convoy made its one-week long 2,000-mile journey across Canada to protest vaccine mandates and Covid tyranny, cheered by many Canadians along the way.  From mid-Jan. Canada and the U.S. imposed a Covid-19 vaccine mandate for foreign truck drivers who cross the border between the two nations. Plans are underway to do a similar truck convoy from West to East coasts of the U.S., ending in Washington, D.C.  Canada’s P.M. Justin Trudeau called the convoy “a small fringe minority.” He moved himself and his family from Ottawa to an “undisclosed location,” but truckers vow to stay until the mandate is removed.
  • Feb. 1, 2022: New Moon at 18:10 Capricorn and also Chinese New Year (Year of the Tiger), observed annually on the 2nd New Moon after the Winter Solstice. These celebrations run up to the Lantern Festival on the 15th day of the luni-solar month (Feb. 15, 2022) and coincide with the 2022 Winter Olympics, Feb. 4-20 in Beijing.  The so-called “Golden Week” (Jan. 31 to Feb. 6) are public holidays in China and denote the first 7 days of New Year celebrations.  The Year of the Tiger represents power, rebellion, adventure and unpredictability. Feb. 1, 2022 is also the start of Austria’s strict Vax mandates, with heavy fines for those who disobey the mandates.  Germany may soon follow with vax mandates in March, despite large citizen protests all across Europe and in cities around the world.  Responding to protest pressure, by contrast, the U.K. dropped most major Covid restrictions as of Jan. 31, 2022, including Vax passports and masking.  On Feb. 1st Denmark starts a major easing of Covid restrictions, with Finland and other Nordic countries likely to follow. The Netherlands previously led the way on Jan. 26th.

The Feb. 1st New Moon occurs in Beijing with 1:58 Gemini rising and New Moon in the 8th house – not auspicious, though tr. Jupiter in Aquarius aspects the Ascendant from the 9th house and other protective factors are present, along with factors for extra intensity.  This New Moon contains 3 important yogas:

  • Sankhya Shoola Yoga: all Vedic classical planets in only 3 houses or signs: in this case Sagittarius, Capricorn, and Aquarius.
  • Kala Sarpa yoga: all classical Vedic planets between Rahu and Ketu in Taurus and Scorpio.
  • Shubha Kartari yoga: to the New Moon planets: Classic benefic planets straddle the New Moon in Capricorn, Venus in Sagittarius and Jupiter in Aquarius.

The Venus-Mars Effect

Thirty days is an unusually long period of time for two planets to be in Graha Yuddha, especially faster moving planets such as Venus and Mars.  It is caused when the two planets coincide in the same area of the zodiac due to their relative orbital speeds. Usually one of the two planets – Venus, in this case –  is moving slowly out of its retrograde motion. Tr. Venus was retrograde Dec. 19, 2021 to Jan. 29, 2022.

Also, Sagittarius is a sign of Long Ascension in the northern hemisphere, while Capricorn is a sign of Short Ascension in the northern hemisphere.  Signs of longer ascension take longer to rise over the eastern horizon and planets appear to spend relatively longer than average in signs of Long Ascension.  However, even with Capricorn being a sign of Short Ascension in the northern hemisphere, the relative orbital speeds of Venus and Mars keep them together within one degree of celestial longitude for 15 days in Capricorn, following the 15 days they are  together in Sagittarius – thus both segments in Graha Yuddha:  30 days total.

What indeed is the Venus-Mars effect?  Beyond sexual attraction and passion shared between two human beings, Venus and Mars together can signify a great deal more than that, modified of course by sign, nakshatra and house position in an astrological chart.  Venus is associated with love, artistry and harmony, but also with a passion to have a certain version of what that harmonious universe should look like.  This is not about peace, strictly speaking. Remember too that Venus rules over politics.  Vedic mythology presents Venus as Shukra, the inventor of political science and author of the Shukra-niti, the best known code of behavior and politics in all of Vedic literature.  Mars, in its highest manifestation is Mangala (auspicious action) denoting action which is divinely inspired and leads to positive ends.  Mars is intrinsically a warrior and is also a Planet of War that is driven to win the war. So when these two planets are travelling closely together we have the possibility of passions getting out of control, or at the very least, some strong ambitions to conquer others.

“When Venus and Mars are intertwined in the chart and are also dominant through angularity or rulership of the Ascendant, it can indicate sexual energy that is either wasted or sublimated in the search for triumphant worldly power.  There is an exaggerated need to fight and win battles, whether military, athletic, political, or social, including sexual conquests.”     from In Search of Destiny (2012), Chapter 7, p. 392, by the author

Though this excerpt is referring to natal astrology and the birth charts of individuals, the same principles can be applied to mundane astrology.  While Venus and Mars are transiting together in Sagittarius from Feb. 11 to Feb. 26, we want to know how sign lord Jupiter is situated, and what are the predominant meanings of Venus and Mars in the sign of Sagittarius as well as the nakshatras of Purva Ashadha (ruled by Venus) and Uttara Ashadha (ruled by the Sun).

Tr. Jupiter will be within classical combustion range of the Sun (11°) from Feb. 18 to March 13, 2022, and within 5° of the Sun from Feb. 26 to March 11, 2022.  So while the two planets are transiting through Sagittarius Feb. 11-26, 2022, Jupiter is combust but not severely combust, and situated in Rahu-owned Shatabisha nakshatra.  Tr. Rahu is currently well placed in early Taurus. But sign-wise Mars is more comfortable than Venus in Sagittarius, as Jupiter and Mars are planetary friends.  However, from Feb. 11-21, 2022 while in Venus-owned Purva Ashadha nakshatra, Venus is more emphasized, and throughout the Graha yuddha Venus may display an exaggerated sense of the “correctness” of her vision.  In Sagittarius, that vision claims to be supported by the law, religion, the media, and/or trade concerns.

Venus and Mars in Capricorn

While Venus and Mars are transiting through Capricorn Feb. 27 to March 12, 2022, the sign lord is Saturn – which is strong in its own sign. Since Mars loses the Graha Yuddha but is exalted in Capricorn, we might now expect to see the biggest display of Mars aggression in its Planetary War with Venus, who is herself comfortable in the sign of Capricorn, owned by a planetary friend. However, tr. Saturn is in Mars-owned Dhanishta nakshatra, which lends some power to Mars.  Remember that Mars is battling Venus’s orientation in Capricorn, which is business, status, and financial success above all, willing to sacrifice other principles in service to this end.  So we look during this time for major battles where Mars is up against Venus’s insistence on her vision of the world above all,  supported by pragmatic principles of business and finance.

Into this equation we can include outer planet Pluto, hovering in early sidereal Capricorn.  On Feb. 26-27, 2022 Pluto is at 3:33 and 3:35 Capricorn, respectively.  Tr. Venus and Mars will be within 0 to 1° orb of tr. Pluto March 1-4, 2022, thus impacting events on those days, including Biden’s SOTU.  Pluto adds a do-or-die component, willing to do anything (legal or illegal) to achieve its ends.  This is why Pluto is often associated with criminals and/or extreme passions that have come to the fore, and extreme measures that may be needed or tried.

Pluto is also associated with hidden matters, so various long-hidden matters may come to light in early March, or even from early Feb. 2022, with tr. Mercury Stationary Direct Feb. 3, 2022.  This occurs at 00:12 Capricorn close to tr. Pluto at 2:53 Capricorn. The Mercury Station is Vargottama and resonates with tr. Pluto SD at 0:10 Capricorn 4 months earlier.    We can see from previous event summaries that an Information War is being waged about very serious matters; and despite widespread censorship, the dams holding back the truth cannot easily hold at this time.

Adding further intensity to this period, from Feb. 27 to March 3, 2022 in most time zones, ALL SEVEN of the classic physical Vedic planets are in only TWO SIGNS – Capricorn and Aquarius, since the Moon is there as well, with a New Moon on March 2, 2022 at 17:56 sidereal Aquarius.  This is another striking feature about this 30-day period, since when tr. Venus and Mars exit Sagittarius – and when tr. Moon is in either Capricorn or Aquarius – all the classic physical Vedic planets are in only TWO SIGNS – Sagittarius and Capricorn, both owned by Saturn.  This is a tremendous bundling of planetary energy, called a Sankhya Yuga yoga.  Even when tr. Moon is outside of these two signs there are only THREE SIGNS or houses represented: a Sankhya Shoola yoga.

Either of these yogas is very intense and bring to mind earthquake-causing planetary phenomena, even if the earthquake may be non-physical and only political, for instance. Coincidentally, we remember that Venus does rule over politics. So just from this, we see that the lead-up to Joe Biden’s first State of the Union (SOTU) is very fraught, having been set for March 1, 2022 at 9 pm.

Biden’s 1st State of the Union Address

The State of the Union address is required by The U.S. Constitution and is normally given in Jan. or Feb. before a joint session of Congress. It was delayed this year possibly due to the Winter Olympics.  SOTU is considered one of the most important events of the U.S. political calendar, and is scheduled this year for Tuesday, March 1st at 9 pm EST, Washington, D.C.

Astrologically this is a very dramatic and demanding chart. There are two sets of Graha Yuddhas: Venus-Mars and Mercury-Saturn.  Mars and Mercury are both losers here, though the only redeeming fact is that sign lord Saturn is swakshetra (in its own sign), even if in Dhanishta nakshatra, which is owned by losing planet Mars.  Even if exalted in Capricorn, Mars is compromised by Venus in the Graha Yuddha. The lunar phase is extremely waning, and Jupiter is severely combust in sidereal Aquarius.  For a man in obvious cognitive decline who is widely believed to be illegitimate due to a stolen election, this timing does not bode well for a successful presidential appearance.

One even wonders whether it will actually take place with Biden in the presidential role. Rumors have been swirling around about him being replaced.  Alternately, some think he is being advised to start a hot war in Ukraine as soon as possible to divert attention from the abject failures of his administration and his recent rock bottom approval ratings after just one year in office.

It does not bode well that the Ascendant lord and 10th lord (Mercury) loses the Planetary War to Saturn, though both are placed in a good house, the trinal 5th house.  This hints that Biden’s speech and cognitive powers will be slower than usual due to his relative senility. He may have trouble following his prompter, among other things.  His handlers normally do not schedule speaking events for him in the evening, so this will be demanding and perhaps require strong energizing drugs.  Further, there is waning energy due to the event occurring within the last 15 ½ hours of the Waning Moon.  A New Moon occurs on March 2, 2022 at 12:34 pm Eastern time at 17:56 Aquarius.

Tr. Mars, Mercury and the Ascendant are all in Mars-ruled nakshatras, and since Mars loses the Planetary War to Venus – even though Mars is exalted – it does not help the communication functions (Mercury) or the sense of command and authority of the occasion (Saturn – the winner of that Graha Yuddha). It may even cause Biden to become belicose or belligerent since Mars has a tendency to fight harder when it feels weakened or surrounded by hostility.  In short, this could be yet one more disastrous event in the historically disastrous Biden administration.

Prior to this, there was no press conference for 10 months until Jan. 19, 2022 – when it too was given poor reviews, even by normally protective Leftist media.  Rumors of Biden’s replacement have circulated, perhaps prompting House Speaker Nancy Pelosi not to retire at age 82 as expected in 2022, and after 29 Congressional Democrats have already announced their resignations or retirements by the end of 2022.  Many are expecting a massive Red Wave at the Nov. 2022 Midterms. This is likely to happen – unless too many states allow illegal immigrants to vote, as in New York State, or various other vote-cheating measures are not stopped in their tracks.

The Globalist push for unlimited mass migration is fully supported by the Biden regime, but faces a massive pushback by law-abiding citizens who do not accept it. Nor do they accept giving up their constitutional rights or allowing illegal immigrants to vote and receive all kinds of free services in exchange (apparently) for voting Democrat. The highly destructive effects of Biden’s Open Border policy and his bungling of every aspect of the national wellbeing, including in Afghanistan, do not bode well for his first-ever State of the Union address scheduled for March 1, 2022.  All this is aside from increasing proof of massive election fraud in the Nov. 2020 U.S. Presidential Election, putting Biden’s legitimacy continually in doubt for well over 50% of U.S. voters.  In summary, all these factors combine to reflect the high drama in this chart.

Winter Olympics 2022 in Beijing, China

At the Opening Ceremony of the 2022 Winter Olympics in Beijing, China, the Ascendant is 14:43 Leo, strong in its Vargottama position. Ascendant lord Sun is in the 6th house of competition, health or military matters closely conjoined a severely combust Saturn.  This indicates conflict with authority and potential problems in all the stated arenas of the 6th house.  Though Saturn is strong in its own sign, it is not comfortable so close to its planetary enemy the Sun and is diminished in its very tight combustion  (17 minutes of arc) to the Sun.

Due to China’s ongoing human rights abuses, a flurry of diplomatic boycotts have arisen from the U.S., the U.K. and Australia. And while these are not expected to affect the games much at all, there may be some added tension due to Sun-Saturn in the 6th house.  This is offset somewhat by the Shubha Kartari yoga, when two classical benefics (Venus and Jupiter) straddle the house in question: the 6th house, in this case, adding a protective component.  In addition, trinal lord Jupiter aspects the Ascendant from the 7th house.  This is one of the most beneficial factors in the chart, with some protection and blessing coming from Jupiter. In this case, its 5th house lordship outweighs its 8th house lordship.

Sports are associated with Sagittarius and athletes with Mars.  Thus it is a big advantage to have sign lord Jupiter in an angular house, and Venus and Mars together in Sagittarius (though not yet in Graha Yuddha) in a trinal house: the 5th house. As lords of the 9th and 10th houses, they give the event a Dharma Karma Adhipati yoga, which is very favorable.  We like to see the conjoining of angular and trinal houses, with Lakshmi, goddess of wealth and abundance ruling over the trinal houses, and Vishnu, god of existence and sustenance ruling over the angular houses.  When they join forces, there is great auspiciousness and a chance to gain power in whatever realm.  In this case, Communist China currently wields a lot of power and is at the heart of the larger battle between the Globalists and the Nationalists.

As noted previously, the Globalists want to weaken nation-states, especially the U.S., and give greater power to a small group of elite Globalists (such as Klaus Schwab and Bill Gates) who are currently working closely with the Chinese Communist Party, and whose financial future is assured under Globalist rule and policies.  The Chinese leadership is supported here by Rahu in the 10th house in Taurus, participating in a Kala Sarpa yoga in which all other classical Vedic planets fall inside Rahu and Ketu on the axis of Houses 4 and 10.

For this reason, many of those who want constitutional rights and freedoms  for individual citizens are not happy about giving Beijing the privilege of hosting the Olympic Games.  Nor do they trust that China will not try to spread yet another virus during the Games. But if they do spread a new virus, it will probably not be without the cooperation of Western Globalist elites, as occurred with Covid-19.  The Wuhan Institute of Virology works very closely with Americans and with U.S. funding from people like Anthony Fauci.

In his new book Red-Handed, U.S. investigative author Peter Schweizer has revealed much more insidious U.S.-China involvement that weakens the U.S. and other nations but boosts China. “Beijing doesn’t have to lobby for its own interests, because there are so many powerful interests in the United States that will lobby on their behalf.” (Peter Schweizer on Jan. 29, 2022)

This helps to explain the backdrop for the inauspicious Moon in the 8th house in the chart for the 2022 Winter Olympic Games in Beijing.   The Moon is the people and/or the female athletes, and they may suffer from this event or during this event.  The only saving grace is the Viparita Vimala Raja yoga, where 12th house lord Moon resides in the 8th house. But the Moon also participates in a Nadi yoga with Saturn, denoting an event that is more serious (Saturn) as well as emotionally fraught (8th house Moon).  A Nadi yoga is an exchange of nakshatra lords. The Moon resides in Uttara Bhadra nakshatra, owned by Saturn, and Saturn resides in Shravana nakshatra, owned by the Moon.

The 8th house is a house of secrets and scandals. Communist China has a brutally repressive regime that operates by extreme censorship, much like what Leftist/Globalists are trying to enforce in the U.S., and with full support from the Chinese Communist Party.  In their view, anything counter to their narrative must be cancelled, censored, and at times vilified.  In China, as we know, only one official narrative directed by the CCP is allowed.

Apropos of fears and health concerns, a virus has been reported spreading across China as of early Jan. 2022, with authorities locking down major cities near Beijing, and as of Jan. 30-31, several residential areas in Beijing itself were sealed off.  World athletes may well be endangered, whether vaccinated or not, especially if the Chinese Communist Party intends to unleash more deadly viruses during the Games.  Also, as noted previously, there are increasing reports of Covid-vaccination related deaths and injuries occurring worldwide – not in 2020, but spiking in historically unprecedented numbers since the vaccine rollout in early 2021.  This information has been largely suppressed in the Globalist mainstream media,  but clearly links the deaths and/or injuries causatively to the Covid vaccines.  Among other things, sudden heart problems are occurring among male athletes and members of the military who were previously in peak physical condition.

The Launch of TRUTH Social – Donald Trump’s New Media Platform

The date is well publicized for this launch, but as of late Jan. 2022 there is no exact launch time for Trump’s new media platform TRUTH Social.  So we will use 00:01 am EST on Monday, Feb. 21, 2022 – President’s Day, and the date assigned for the official launch.  At this date and time, the Ascendant is at 25:24 Libra.  The geographical location is set for the corporate headquarters of TMTG, Trump’s media company of which he is Chairman. TMTG was founded Feb. 8, 2021, and as of Jan. 2022 Devin Nunes is the CEO, having resigned from U.S. Congress after 19 years, effective Jan. 1, 2022.

The use of President’s Day for the launch makes a statement in and of itself.  Just prior to the founding of TMTG was Twitter’s controversial ban of President Donald J. Trump in early Jan. 2021, soon followed by a Facebook ban. Both became permanent bans by Jan. 8, 2021, and both accused him of “inciting violence” on Jan. 6, 2021.  Trump had over 88 million followers on Twitter, his major media megaphone at that time.  Simultaneously they allowed Twitter accounts for known terrorists such as Taliban leaders and operatives.  In direct response to that ban of a U.S. President from a social media platform, TMTG “will provide an outlet that encourages open global conversation without discrimination against political ideology,” the release states.

At 00:01 Eastern Standard Time, tr. Moon is at 3:23 Libra in Chitra nakshatra, and moves to 10:12 Libra (Swati nakshatra) by 12 noon EST. So the Moon transits between 3:23 and 10:12 Libra, receiving a benefic trinal aspect from tr. Jupiter in Aquarius, as does the Libra Ascendant.  It is very favorable to have the 10th lord in the Ascendant, especially with AIR signs being generally favorable for communications and with tr. Venus also well located for this launch in the 3rd house of communications.  Also, Ascendant sign lord Venus wins the Graha Yuddha with Mars.

We have another Dharma Karma Adhipati yoga, since a trinal lord (Mercury) and an angular lord (Saturn) are conjoined in an angular house.  (This yoga also occurs in the Winter Olympics 2022 chart, set for the Opening Ceremony in Beijing.)  A Mahapurusha Shasha yoga is also present for the Feb. 21st TRUTH Social launch chart, since Saturn is in its own sign in an angular house, further strengthening Saturn, which is already Yogakaraka planet and excellent for Libra Ascendant.  Sun and Rahu are in a Nadi yoga, echoing the close Sun-Rahu combination in Donald Trump’s chart in the 10th house, even if his Sun and Rahu are both in Taurus.

In this case the Venus-Mars Graha Yuddha is useful to the founders of the new platform, because TRUTH Social aims to defeat its competitors, or at least those who operate using principles of censorship when their official narrative is disputed.  Competitors are seen in the 7th house (also the 6th), but outright competitors and opposition can be seen from the 7th house (Aries), whose sign lord Mars loses the Graha Yuddha with Venus.

This becomes a pivotal point as more data and evidence is released shortly regarding several crucial matters, both for U.S. national politics and wellbeing, and international politics and wellbeing.  Twitter, Facebook, Youtube, plus all the Globalist media (encompassing most of Leftist mainstream media) have so far refused to allow information on election fraud or on Covid vaccines or mandates to get media attention, calling it “misinformation” when  they do touch on it at all.  TRUTH Social promises to be a platform that attracts a huge national and global audience, and it WILL allow such information to get serious attention, notably if it is backed by science, statistics and hard, provable evidence – not narratives fabricated with faulty evidence from unnamed sources in order to achieve particular aims.

TRUTH Social is bound to show proof of widespread election fraud in the Nov. 2020 Presidential Election, proof that Vaccine mandates are destructive and undemocratic, and proof that the Covid vaccines themselves are causing  astronomical numbers of deaths and permanent injuries.  These are among the major themes likely to be revealed, and though independent media has covered these topics for some time, wider audiences await the arrival of TRUTH Social.  And as noted, the defeat of Mars by Venus in the 3rd house Graha Yuddha is cause for celebration – especially if you believe that widespread censorship, endless Lockdowns, and Vax mandates are destructive, unjustifiable, and undemocratic, and you yearn for the return of citizens’ rights and freedoms that we used to have.
