It is interesting to note that in 2020 the first lock downs began during the first all planets moving forward and again during the second one. Plus on January 20, 2021 there was another presidential inauguration. See the rest of the article for more insights about this.

All Planets are moving froward from January 22 to Apr 21, 2023 (90 days) See table below.

On March 9, 2020 all the planets were in forward motion. Shortly after that time the first lockdowns happened and we had a planetary experience where the energy was charging ahead and we the people were told to stay in place. We might wonder what was going on behind the scenes? 

When all the planets are forward moving we could imagine this is a time designed to accelerate our personal growth. If so how does a lock down help facilitate that? Was it a way to reduce outside distractions, creating a time and space to contact our inner knowing, strength and courage?

This article is a work in progress with more being added over time.What does it Mean and

Why do We Care?

All Planets are ALWAYS moving forward but from the Earth’s perspective they appear to reverse direction (astrologically this is called a retrograde) and from the Earth we see the planet moving back across the same stars it just passed. On Earth this effect is felt and has been noted over eons of time.

So All Planets moving forward occurs when not one single planet is in Retrograde motion as measured or witnessed from the Earth. As already stated, from a solar system point of view, no planet is actually ever moving backward.
However, similar to passing cars on the Freeway – where it can feel like the car you are passing is moving backward, even though you know it is actually moving forward. The same is true for the planets when we experience a visual sensation from the Earth that a planet is moving backward.

All Planets Moving Forward suggests a time for Full Speed Ahead into whatever we are creating or desiring to create. This is a powerful time to take progressive action toward a heart felt intention. But wait there is more…

What is the intent of a Planetary Retrograde?

The retrograde time of any planet could be considered a time for stepping back and visioning in ways that are connected to the archetypal energy of that planet. It is about planting seeds or intention for forward movement when the planet goes direct.

From this perspective then we can see retrograde planets provide a space for deeper inner reflection designed to help us move forward with the time is optimal.

When ALL the planets are moving  forward the momentum is in a forward direction creating a full speed ahead momentum with whatever we are dreaming into or where we are focusing our attention. This isn’t good or bad, but rather is about what we choose to do with it.

Having a well thoughtout intention to move forward at this time is recommended taking advantage of the forward momentum acting on what feels most alive and on purpose for the best results possible.

The Greater Collective Intent we Can Energize

If we imagine all the planets are moving forward together and perhaps there energy is collaborative and constructive, we can also imagine it is a time when (if we choose it) we can move forward together on planet Earth, ideally with an intention that benefits all life.

The Shadow
With all planets moving forward there is very little that encourages us to slow down and reflect on what is happening. This means a shadow experience of a full speed ahead time can be challenging and may even result in reckless choices and results.

So while this is a good time to take advantage of the forward momentum it is wise to consider what feels most alive and on purpose to wisely engage for the best results possible.

Where the Alchemical Astrology Perspective on this Originated
From 2007 to 2019, Daniel Giamario and I did monthly member calls for the Shamanic Astrology Mystery School. These calls were an amazing way to go deeper into the cycles and seasons occurring each month.

In November 2008, during our monthly call, Daniel and I noticed that not one planet was retrograde in the upcoming month, all the planets were moving forward for over a month. At that time we didn’t know how often this happened and had never even considered what it might mean. We began to contemplate what it would mean for the coming month and also what it would mean if a person was born with all planets moving forward?

Much more research and direct experience is needed to adequately answer these questions, however, what follows is a beginning look at when the planets move forward from 2000 to 2025. Some years the timing is brief, other years the planets are never all moving forward at the same time. Stay tuned for updates to this content.

All Natal Planets Moving Forward and The USA Presidents
All Planets Moving Forward and USA Presidential Inaugurations

So far in the historical record NOT one President has ever served another term after being inaugurated with All Planets Direct. This is true for those serving their first term. Some were in their second term and wouldn’t have the possibility of serving another term due to the two term limit as described in the 22nd amendment ratified by Congress on February 27, 1951, limiting an elected president to two terms in office, or a total of eight years.

(Note: Franklin Rosevelt is the only president who served more than two terms)

Going back to 1900 there are only two presidential inaugurations that took place with all the planets moving forward. The first was the second inauguration of Ronald Reagan followed by the second inauguration of Bill Clinton. Trump was the first president in over 100 years to be inaugurated in his first term with all planets direct and he did not get re-elected in 2020.

Presidents BORN with All Planets Moving Forward  

14th President Franklin Pierce Born Nov 23, 1804 served one term
16th President Abraham Lincoln Born Feb 12, 1809 assassinated at start of his second term
17th President Andrew Johnson Born Dec 29, 1809 was vice president to Lincoln and only served one term as president
42nd President Bill Clinton Born Aug 19, 1946 he was the first democrat to be elected to a second term since FDR
43rd President George W Bush Born Jul 06, 1946 noted for 9/11 and going to war with Iraq over so-called weapons of mass destruction and occupying Afghanistan as well as declaring war on Terrorism. He was also elected to a second term.

Presidents Inaugurated with ALL Planets Moving Forward
(a.k.a. All Planets Direct)

05th President James Monroe 2nd Term, Inauguration Mar 5, 1821 (this was before term limits were ratified by congress on Feb 27, 1951)

09th President William Henry Harrison, Inauguration Mar 4, 1841. Died a month later on April 4 1841 only serving one month. His wife Anna was too ill to join him in Washington, so daughter-in-law served First Lady function. Harrison died before his wife was due to arrive in May. President for 32 days. NOTE: He was also the first president to die in a Jupiter Saturn conjunction linked with the Tecumseh, having been the military Major General that led the battle of the Thames responsible for the death of the Native American leader Tecumseh. His brother is said to have set a curse that has affected presidents elected every 20 years. More about this coming soon!

11th President James Polk, Inauguration March 4, 1845. Was the first inauguration to be covered by Telegraph and first to be illustrated in the London Times (served only one term)

14th President Franklin Pierce, Inauguration March 4, 1853 (served one term). He was also born with All Natal Planets Direct. He recited his inaugural speech from Memory. His Vice President died shortly after his inauguration and the VP office was left vacant for the duration of Pierce’s presidency.

40th President Ronald Reagan 2nd term inauguration was January 21, 1985. Reagan spent 15.5 million of tax payer’s money on his second inauguration ceremony earning him the Golden Fleece award for wasting tax payers money.

42nd President Bill Clinton 2nd term inauguration was January 20, 1997 also Born with All Planets Direct. This was the first Presidential Inauguration streamed live on the Internet and the last inauguration of the 20th century. He was impeached by congress December 19, 1998 for “high crimes and misdemeanors” including lying under oath and obstruction of justice. He was acquitted by the Senate on Feb 12, 1999 completing his term of office.

45th President Donald Trump January 20, 2017. He was impeached by Congress on December 18, 2019 on charges of abuse of power and obstruction of Congress. He was acquitted by the Senate February 5, 2020. In November 2020,

Trump lost re-election but contested the results and incited an insurrection on January 6, 2021. He was not inaugurated on January 20, 2021 and was impeached for a second time by the House of Representative before leaving office though was acquitted by the Senate. He is the first president ever to be impeached twice.

The pattern of no president being inaugurated for another term remains intact.

46th President Joe Biden was inaugurated on January 20, 2021 when all the planets were direct. As we approach the 2024 Presidential Election many wonder if he will run again. If so based on this trend he may not get re-elected.

NOTE: While I did my own research for this article, Wave Rayne (who was on the 2008 Shamanic Astrology Mystery School member’s call) also did an article on the presidents and all planets direct by birth and inauguration along with other articles she has written about this subject. I imagine there are others who have researched the significant timing of all planets moving forward and are writing about or have written about what they have found – as this is a rich area of research with more to discover.
