I'm currently living in Vietnam, and people here are celebrating the Lunar New Year holiday which is the most important day in our culture (same as China). As usual, we get excited about this occasion every year, but in this coming 2020 (count on the lunar calendar) we are concerned and worried more about the danger circumstance in our region: VIRUS CORONA. Two people traveled from Wuhan (in Mainland China) to Hanoi (our capital) on 13th, Dec. And they did travel throughout many regions in the country, the final destination was in Ho Chi Minh City where they were diagnosed having this virus 1 day ago.
I did make a horary chart about the moment I read the news to have "an astrology look" on the situation.
Sag Mars in H3 square Venus - Neptune H6 and square AC: I think this aspect creates confusion about the news of the virus, especially the exact number of people get infectious.
Difficult aspects of Pluto- Saturn with other planets, especially the square aspect with Uranus in the 8th house can manifest a series of crises and uncontrollable virus spreading in the region?
The 7th house indicates relationships with other people, and it has Chiron sitting there. The virus spreads mainly through people by touch and cough, so I think it Chiron makes everything seems so vulnerable and easily gets infected among people.
What do you think about the chart? Any ideas or any thoughts about the topic, please share it with me I hope it won't be a massive plague outbreak worldwide at all. Also, take care of yourself

I read about this today.
Wuhan is on lockdown. I imagine more to come.
It's hypothesized that this could be the new "plague", something similar to MERS or Birdflu.
The odd thing is, this isn't the only virus on the horizon. There are new bacteria emerging which are not defeated by antibiotics etc., and have killed quite a few people. Supposedly now that the icebergs are melting, new "old" bacteria is emerging that has changed its genetic structure and such.
There is much to be concerned by in the world. The internet aids in exploding this concern.
C. difficile is a new superbug that is dangerous, but apparently a gut biome transfer did a patient good.
There are others I don't recall.
If you're worried about yourself, a chart of your own birth would be more appropriate.
Health is a 6th house thing in astrology.
As for countries, I've read that modern China is a Sun in Libra while modern Vietnam is a Sun in Cancer! I don't really trust these signs, and charts, though.
Have a Happy Year of the Rat!
I was hoping someone would start this topic. Thank you. In the U.S. the news is calling this the coronavirus.
It looks like it's spreading past China now, thanks to people traveling on planes.
By the way, the common cold has ties to coronavirus--I believe there are two strains of this virus that cause a cold. So that could complicate things if people think they're just catching a cold.
Thank you and Happy New Year to you and your family.
