China in the Tarot to 2026

How does the long Uranus in Taurus cycle for China show up in the Tarot until 2026?

The Queen of Pentacles or Coins says it all. There is a lot of synchronicity with this card. It shouts about the astrology, but also about the real world.

It raises questions about China and also Her Majesty the Queen. The latter was on the throne when Hong Kong went back from Britain to the Chinese. I’ll talk more about China in a moment and ask you to interpret the card that has ‘randomly’ turned up.

First, though, let’s look at the Queen of Pentacles and the Queen of the United Kingdom and Commonwealth.

Her Majesty the Queen, Queen of Coins and Rationing

Ration Card Unsplash Museums Victoria 379x600 - China in the Tarot to 2026The above is a great shot of Her Majesty the Queen by Annie Spratt on Unsplash shows our image of her. The old image. This is the monarch we know from the coins and notes around the Commonwealth. That name is really ‘common wealth’ and it is about the economy under the monarchy, but also the idea of ‘common people’ and shared wealth. You also find the word ‘communism’ hidden there.

Her Majesty the Queen is a Sun Taurus. Uranus is in Taurus for the first time in her adult life. The last time she experienced it, was wartime. Rationing.

This ration card from Museums Victoria shows exactly what the reality was, on the last time Uranus was in Taurus. Imagine being rationed at Buckingham Palace. Yet, they were. The Queen’s Head on Currency

The Queen’s head on Commonwealth currency will change for one of two reasons by 2026. Most obviously, she passes the throne on, and we farewell her. A new monarch’s head appears on the coinage.

Less obviously, perhaps, she stays on the throne, but we see the emergence of new currency; perhaps Britcoin, not Bitcoin, which features a new portrait.

What can you see in the Tarot with this Queen of Pentacles (Coins)?

Queen of Coins - China in the Tarot to 2026

The Queen of Pentacles (Coins)

You are invited to read this card for yourself until 2026. You can stage-direct the action. You can bring in other characters or props. Pamela Colman Smith and Arthur E. Waite created this image, in 1909.

That was an important year for Pamela’s work in stage-set design, but also in modern scientific thinking about reality. The fact is, you select your reality, by measuring it. Tarot is a measurement. You pick one card. Or six. Or twelve. In doing that, you pick out one reality and walk into it.

Now that you have walked into the Queen of Coins until 2026 with me and everyone else reading this, what do you see?

Year of the Ox and Taurus the Bull – China and Uranus in Taurus

anne nygard z7ilrSQDHyI unsplash 600x415 - China in the Tarot to 2026China is on everybody’s mind in 2021 and will be there until 2026. China is where COVID-19 first appeared in Wuhan. In Eastern astrology, it’s Year of the Ox in 2021. The Asian version of Taurus the Bull, perhaps.

We have a few charts for China:

  • In the January 1st, 1912 chart we find Saturn at 13 Taurus, the Moon at 21 Taurus and Mars at 24 Taurus.
  • In the chart set for September 21st, 1949 (China has many incarnations) she has nothing in Taurus at all.
  • In the Communist China chart set for October 1st, 1949 she has (again) nothing in Taurus.
  • In the final chart set for Nationalist China on December 25th, 1947, we find the Moon at 19 Taurus.

Which Chart for China?

In a moment, I will ask you to read the Queen of Coins with one eye on China. We can test which chart works most accurately these days, by looking at the date that the first Chinese person died from COVID-19. That is historic and tragic –January 10th, 2020.

What did it mean? A crisis for the Chinese people; also, the beginning of strained relations with the rest of the world. We would be aiming to find problems with Virgo/Sixth House in the Chinese chart, which rules public health. We would be angling for problems with Sagittarius/Ninth House in any Chinese chart, to judge accuracy. It rules foreign relations.

COVID-19 is rare; unusual; history-making. We would be looking for transits that can only occur in decades or centuries. So that narrows down our choice for ‘the’ Chinese chart.

China Born on January 1st, 1912 – The first chart fits the bill. This is set for the inauguration of Sun Yat-sen in Nanking, when the Republic of China was created (all data for China: The Book of World Horoscopes, Nicholas Campion, The Wessex Astrologer, 2004).

On the day the first man died from what was being called ‘the Wuhan virus’ at the time, Pluto was at 22 Capricorn, opposite Neptune at 22 Cancer. That can only happen about every quarter-century.

Rare Historic Transits

Saturn was at 21 and 24 Aquarius, square China’s Moon at 21 Taurus and Mars at 24 Taurus. That can only happen every 29 years.

The North Node was at 8 Cancer opposite China’s Sun at 9 Capricorn, only one degree away. That can only happen every 19 years.

All these wheels turning together can only reach this unusual position, very rarely. And COVID-19 is rare. This chart shows it. I’ve used other charts for China in the past, but for the purposes of the Tarot, this one sings.

What Can You Predict for China? Using Tarot Symbolism

Using the Queen of Coins card and looking at the future of China until 2026, what can you see? The Chinese are very interested in my psychic astrology predictions as you may have seen on YouTube.

The Queen of Coins is wearing Communist China’s trademark colour: red. The throne has Capricorn the goat embedded in the masonry.

China is a Sun Capricorn, born with the Sun at 9 degrees of that sign. She also has Uranus at 28 Capricorn, quincunx Pluto at 27 Gemini. That is Chairman Mao’s Little Red Book.

Incredibly, China was born with a T-Square. The North Node at 28 Aries and South Node at 28 Libra.

Using Astrology and Tarot – My Prediction for China to 2026

Only by using astrology and Tarot together do you really get full mileage from Pamela and Arthur’s famous deck, the Smith-Waite. This card will talk to you, if you think about the Chinese patterns, but also the transits ahead.

The transit of Uranus (shock, revolution, radical change) to 28 Taurus on Saturday, May 31st, 2025 until Tuesday, May 17th, 2026 – a fortnight later brings upheaval to China.

There will be rebellion in the ranks of leadership then, but also rebellion on the streets. A huge economic shock is coming to China in May 2025 and it will unfold like an electrical storm, perhaps with real storms, that month.

Going back to the Tarot card, we see the Queen of Coins with Capricorn embedded in the throne. Well, Uranus at 28 Capricorn in the Chinese chart will be in a trine from transiting Uranus at 28 Taurus. At the same time, transiting Uranus (the lightning bolt from the blue) will aspect the North Node at 28 Aries and South Node at 28 Libra. That is war karma. Aries rules all battles. Libra rules duels, as well as duets.

Big Shock, Karmic Revolution

This sounds like karma from the Taiping Rebellion. The Taiping Civil War or Taiping Rebellion of 1850-1864. It left some 20-30 million dead. This also sounds like karma from the Opium Wars. Thus, the United Kingdom is drawn into the story.

Uranus is also aspecting the North Node and South Node of karma, so there is something fated about what is to come. It pulls in the troubled history of China with opium, and the old civil war.

Ceres at 4 Aries in transit, is perfectly trine Jupiter at 4 Sagittarius, so China’s foreign relations work for her, then. Perhaps this is a foreign country intervening in Chinese affairs, with the support of some of her people.

The situation peaks in intensity before May 28th to 31st, 2025 as we have a Full Moon at 22 Scorpio on Monday the 12th of May, which is in exact aspect to Neptune at 22 Cancer in the China chart. That is about her families, property, real estate and land.

Eruption in Land and Online

You can see the Chinese mountain landscape in the Tarot card, Queen of Coins (Pentacles). It looks volcanic. Uranus is associated with the escape of lightning and Pluto is very much associated with earthquakes. Pluto at 27 Gemini in the China chart is hit by Jupiter at 27 Gemini. That is big.

It is volcanic, so we might expect land eruption to coincide with media and internet eruption.

Working with astrology and the Tarot, and synchronicity can give you a far richer and more detailed reading than anything else. Just one card will do it. Now, over to you.

Specific Dates in 2025

Jupiter goes to 27 Gemini in 2025, in conjunction with Pluto at 27 Gemini in the Chinese chart. This takes place on 28th to 31st of May 2025, which narrows it down.

On the same dates, Wednesday, May 28th, 2025 until Saturday, May 31st – a few days later, we find Neptune at 1 Aries trine Ceres at 1 Leo in the China chart. That is about the next generation rising up.

Uranus at 28 Taurus is perfectly trine natal Uranus at 28 Capricorn, which is the economic lightning bolt that creates the revolution. I would be amazed if this was not digital currency.

  1. Thank you for your article, amazing as always. I feel a bit unease when reading ‘It is volcanic, so we might expect land eruption to coincide with media and internet eruption.’ It is quite a sensitive topic in China where censorship is strong.
    I was born in China, and I am experiencing my first Saturn Return in the UK. As a working professional, this year 2021 marks a point for me to decide either extending my visa or going back. I am very interested in getting some fresh perspectives from astrology and tarots, about both myself and the countries. Would appreciate if you can share with me anything special going on in my chart now.
    Thanks again & Kind regards

    1. Do you stay or go back to China? Any decision you make, should be made no later than April 2022, as you are in the most fortunate cycle for house/apartment/residency/settling in 12 years. Your Saturn Return is always hard work, but have a look at your options regarding a return home, but also a new life, with permanent settlement. It really depends which you prefer and that is a personal choice, but whichever you want get the wheels in motion now, and think about Easter 2022 as the end point. That would work really well with your chart. See what the Tarot says. It may tell you something quite clear about your choice.

  2. I really love your predictions Jessica!

    After I’d read your post I looked at the card properly and what first jumped out at me was the goat/Capricorn – then the hare, so I thought of spring but then the roses I thought summer. Both your predictions are in a northern spring /summer
    It’s amazing how much about this tarot lines up with your predictions!

    I do always think about hope and prosperity with summer and hare symbols, so I’m guessing there’s another side to the coin, so to speak…benefits of war for some Chinese? A levelling of the rich/poor divide? I’m new to tarot so might be way off on the coin symbolism!

    Of course its all only visible once you’ve revealed it for us, thank you !

    1. Thank you. Yes, Capricorn does leap out from the card. Nationalist China, born in 1947, has the Sun at 2 Capricorn and Venus at 29 Capricorn. It is the most ambitious sign of the zodiac, wanting to be at the top. It strives patiently to reach the peak or pinnacle and is associated with high-rise (which Shanghai has in abundance). Yet, when Pluto goes to 29 Capricorn in January 2024 (rare, historic transit) there will be a change in the balance of power in Chinese leadership, but also with China’s place in the world, as she stands with the UN and WHO, for example. Some Chinese might want a conflict, but they would lose. This is actually a tough, tough chart from 2026 so it would be extremely unwise for them to try and box clever.

  3. interesting as always jessica!
    looking at the queen of pentacles card the hare stood out, it took a while to even notice it was there, it blends into the colour of the landscape… it could be overlooked and is mainly thought of as a symbol or fertility etc, but interestingly they have the ability to see almost 360 degrees helping them detect predators from all angles, they can run at fast speeds and evade being captured by changing directions quickly!

    1. Good on you. That is an excellent intuitive reading of the hare in the card for China. It’s sod’s law that on the day this was published China announced a relaxation of restrictions on children. Three children are now allowed. The rabbit is of course a symbol for fertility too.

    1. You will be in a different career in 2025, and perhaps have two careers. The second one would be taken up in 2021 or 2022 and involve technology you are new to. It will be very exciting and set you free from any other aspect of work you find to be a grind. Of course it may end up becoming your entire career. It depends on how hard you work and how focussed you are. You will have a completely different social life from 2026, new friends and new groups you join, outside China and the Chinese, will bring incredible new freedom, too.

  4. I was gobsmacked when I read this, Jessica, here’s my diary entry for 14th October 2020: “a terrible vision of China with huge tracts of barren wasteland”. The Queen is surely Pandora, sitting in a desolate landscape and, having unleashed havoc on the World, wistfully holds Hope in her hands.

  5. Hello Jessica Ji

    Hope you are fit and fine in this pendemic time.
    Its Manan from India & it’s my owner that I write a comment on your blog.

    Have you read VarahMihira an Ancient vedic astrologer from Ujjain, if not it’s my heartly request to read his books.

    I have some ancient text on such outstanding saints, who predict with perfect timings.
    I follow you on Twitter as MishManan.

    May the eternal source always makes you healthy and long live without any curse.

    Kindly apologize if you find any mistakes.

  6. Hi Jessica, I read your comments with interest. I wonder if the alignments relate to Taiwan. The Taiwan nationalists movement ties in I think with the first China chart you link refer to. I heard on the news that there is an interest in getting Taiwan full membership of the WHO on the back of corona. China would be against that and are sensitive to any form of recognition of Taiwan. The straits of Taiwan draw in the USA and France (who have supplied weaponry to Taiwan) and territorial issues in the South China Sea and islands in that area spark strong nationalistic reactions amongst several nations. I wonder if the transits link to other countries in the region and if so what insight you can glean there. Kind regards Katherine

    1. I do not have a chart for Taiwan in The Book of World Horoscopes, Katherine, so will have to set up a few contenders using Taiwan’s history and constitution, and run them through an accuracy check. We can use the old Formosa island information (obviously Taiwan’s previous identity) and look at 25th December 1947 in Taipei, the Taiwan capital, but it’s not ideal. What does show up here is karma from 1947 as right up until 2nd August that year, the North Node was in Gemini and the South Node was in Sagittarius. It’s the same now. North Node in Gemini, South Node in Sagittarius. Karma is coming for China and Taiwan and it’s about domestic flights, short-haul flights, and all transport and travel between both places and coming out of them, too. I really like astrology as it cuts through the noise. If you want to know the truth about China, she was created in a Gemini North Node year in her nationalist rebirth. She also has Uranus (upheaval) at 23 Gemini so apart from anything else, this looks like a future language revolution. The Great Wall of China and its language barrier is overturned in 2032 on the Uranus Return in Gemini…as is all her all old transport, trade, travel and tourism.

  7. Just having a go at an interpretation of the Queen of Pentacles card:
    The Queen is dressed in red for China, a fortunate colour in their culture. She sits on a throne with capricorn symbols – ambitious climbing to the top of various mountains. She is surrounded by flowers, rabbits and wreathed in roses. All symbolic of summer and abundance. The sky is yellow, highly significant as a symbol of good luck and yet this Queen is looking down at her coin and she does not look particularly happy with life. She looks as if she is waiting patiently for something good to happen. Perhaps things have not gone well in the past and now she must just wait for things to improve. She could be waiting a long time and autumn and winter are approaching fast. If the volcano in the background erupts, then the good things that surround her now will quickly change or disappear. This card suggests sadness or even despair. An inability to move forwards and benefit from the goodness that surrounds her. She needs help, but there are no friends left to give her the means to unlock the benefits. She may be at the top, but it is a very lonely place and the only way left is down.

    1. Thank you. Yes, she is dressed in Chinese red. She has the Capricorn we find in the Chinese Communist ‘birth’ chart. You could interpret the coin as her currency or economy. The sense of waiting you describe is quite vivid. This is a country waiting for a return, isn’t it? Or waiting for the money to actually make it happy? I agree, the only way left is down, once you are at the top, economically. There is no higher place for Capricorn to climb.

  8. Jessica, Thank you for your hard work and insights. I have just been reading about a scenario from a retired Australian military chief. In this scenario China execute another Pearl Harbor in the Pacific and totally cut off Australia from its allies, shooting down satellites and cutting internet cables. He claims Taiwan is a distraction. Sorry to be so bleak. Do you see this as a possibility?

    1. This Australian military chief has quite the scenario. Australia will form new foreign alliances and renewed foreign alliances from March 2023 to offset any power imbalance with China. Chinese corruption within Australia will be rooted out during the ICAC hearings – 2023, 2024, 2025. Watch money laundering through property and land; that’s been an issue since 2008 when Pluto first began to oppose Cancer in the national chart. From March 2023 when Pluto changes signs a great deal in the world changes and Australia and her allies of old will reshape their agreements with one eye on sabre-rattling.

  9. Thanks Jessica. There are days when I just feel so overwhelmed by the dominance of cruel forces on our planet at the moment. While I know there are going to be costs, I can’t wait for the change of signs / times. Thank you.

    1. The exit of Pluto from Capricorn and his arrival in Aquarius is as dramatic a change in the world as the end of the corruption and excess of Louis XVI and Marie Antoinette was, to the French. This is global. The first light at the end of the tunnel is March-June 2023. By 2030 we will be astonished at how much people endured in the 2008-2023 cycle. Heads will roll as they did in the French Revolution – metaphorically.
