The Australia Horoscope in 2020

Reading Australia With Sun Sign Astrology

Countries have zodiac signs too. They also have ‘birth’ charts. Australia is a good one to track in 2020, because of the Climate Emergency Bushfires and the unpopularity of Prime Minister Scott Morrison. But wait, there’s more! How about both critical smoke pollution and damaging hailstorms in Canberra, the national capital? And what about the tragic end for so many Australian iconic creatures, from the platypus to the koala?

Finding the Australia Horoscope

Edited from

Australia has been ‘reborn’ many times throughout history which gives us a few charts and zodiac signs to choose from. We’re looking for a chart that also works with the most important day in Australian history. The sacking of a Prime Minister. Our Gough Whitlam Dismissal chart shows a jaw-dropping line-up at 21 Scorpio and Taurus. (The finance signs: Whitlam was dismissed largely because of Australia’s economic issues).

The Choices for Australian Charts
The January 26th horoscope shows Neptune at 21 Libra. Fortuna at 21 Pisces. (The popular date of Australia Day).

The February 7th horoscope shows Neptune at 21 Libra. Panacea at 21 Sagittarius. (When the nation was signed into history).
The January 1st horoscope shows Vulcano at 20 Aquarius (Another rebirth for Australia – this time political).

This gives us Australia as an Aquarius, an Aquarius or a Capricorn. What do you think? Using everything you know from your Sun Sign School course, which sign would you narrow it down to?



More Choices for Australia

We have two more ‘rebirths’ for the nation, 9th May (Sun Taurus) and the moment that the owners of the land, indigenous first people, won a historic constitutional and legal victory, 27th May (Sun Gemini).

So the choices increase for Australia. She might be Capricorn, Aquarius, Taurus or Gemini.

We’re also looking at the full birth charts here. Every single factor in those competing horoscopes.

How Australia Has a Hotspot at 20, 21, 22 Degrees
The horoscope for 9th May 1901 set for 12.00pm in Melbourne is astonishing. It shows the North Node at 22 Scorpio. The South Node at 22 Taurus. The Ascendant is at 21 Cancer. The Descendant is at 21 Capricorn. Fortuna is at 21 Sagittarius. Panacea is at 21 Aries.

The horoscope for 27th May 1967 set for 11.59pm in Canberra also rings true in an uncanny way, if we’re looking for a horoscope that chimes with the sacking of Gough Whitlam.

Mercury 22 Gemini. Uranus 20 Virgo. Neptune 22 Scorpio. Panacea at 21 Leo. Vesta at 21 Scorpio.

What 2020 is Doing to the Australia Chart Hotspots
You are looking for anything transiting or passing through at 20, 21, 22 which is also a slow-moving outer planet, or slow-moving factor. Why slow? Because slow means – transformative change. Critical change, often.

In the year 2020 we find Saturn in Capricorn going over 21, 22 degrees of that sign. Pluto in Capricorn going over 22 degrees of that sign. The North Node in Gemini going over 20, 21, 22 degrees and the South Node in Sagittarius crossing 20, 21, 22 degrees. That’s big. How would you interpret that ‘weather’ as a whole – and how do you think it will hit all the Australia charts?



Which Sign is Australia?

Taurus, Gemini, Capricorn or Aquarius? Australia has ‘rebirth’ charts for all four signs. Perhaps looking at the crisis of the Climate Emergency bushfires, the mass deaths of the country’s national symbols – koalas, kangaroos, wallabies, possums – and the rest – gives some clues.

The Sun shows how you shine and what is most visible about you. How has Australia looked to the watching world in January 2020? As a money-minded Taurus? A media-minded Gemini? An ambitious Capricorn? A group-minded Aquarius?

Over to you. Perhaps the clue is in groups. After all, it was Australia’s cricket team whom PM Morrison asked to pose with him when the fires were burning – and it is the groups of volunteer firefighters who have attracted charity group fundraising.

If you have Solar Fire software, set yourself a test and create charts for all the Australia candidates. Then set yourself a second test and use the chart wheels from Stephanie Johnson to look at the cycles for January 2020, running the nation through all its four options.
