At the beginning of this week, on One Direction's 8th Anniversary, something very peculiar happened online. An advert sent fans into a frenzy after a comeback show at Melbourne's Etihad Stadium scheduled for December 31, 2020, appeared on the website – before the listing was quickly removed. Around the same time, unreleased songs appeared on Spotify.
Both these events have now fuelled speculation that a One Direction Reunion is on the cards. Although the announcement on Ticketmaster has been dismissed as an error, it does make sense that the guys would want to celebrate what will be their 10th Anniversary year with a temporary get together in 2020.
I decided to take a glimpse into the future to find astrological clues. What I've found is very intriguing and there is a lot to write. So, starting with the current planetary influences for this year which are the precursor to what's coming in 2019 and 2020, here is Part One of my analysis.
Transiting Pluto conjunct the One Direction natal Ascendant - which was the astrological catalyst for the Hiatus - will remain a powerful influence until January 2019. After that date, Pluto will begin to move away from the Ascendant and the pressure will start to ease. Could this trigger the desire to get back together again?
During 2018, transiting Saturn is in a square aspect to the 1D Jupiter. This planetary influence has a restricting effect, particularly in business and finance. Could money problems drive 1D into a reunion?
Also during 2018, transiting Saturn is in conjunction to Pluto in the One Direction natal chart. This planetary combination brings significant changes and the inevitable conclusion of a situation. During this year some things will come to an end. Will this mean the finish of their solo careers and a return to the band?
Transiting Jupiter will be conjunct the 1D natal Midheaven throughout 2018. This will bring confidence, career success and the need to influence others. However, the negative side of this planetary effect could bring disillusionment if they don't get the recognition that they feel they deserve in their present circumstances. So could that lead to reforming the band?
At the end of May 2018, transiting Uranus began to form a square aspect to the 1D natal Sun. This planetary influence will continue until April 2019 and will bring sudden, unexpected events that will test the guys' ability to withstand change and to stay on the path they have chosen. Some out-of-the-blue incident could occur which will force them to re-evaluate their current situation.
All of the above planetary influences will be over by this time next year. Then, there will be some interesting developments in 2019.
