Since February 2019, transiting Neptune has been in a square aspect to Ryan's natal Saturn. This influence will continue until 5th January 2021, after which there will be a gradual easing of the stress this may have brought. Under this planetary influence, he may have found that his sense of security and self-confidence have been severely challenged. He may have felt threatened by some sort of loss, perhaps because of financial problems; or by a change in the structure of his career. In many ways, this major planetary combination has set the scene for what is to come in Ryan's life, as there will be many big changes during the next few years.
In January 2020, transiting Jupiter formed a conjunction to Ryan's natal Jupiter. This is called a Jupiter Return and it marks the beginning of a new 12-year cycle. The last time this happened was in January 2008 - just a month before he made his West End debut as Frankie Valli in Jersey Boys, a role which would propel him into the spotlight like never before. In March 2008, transiting Jupiter also formed a conjunction to Ryan's natal North Node, an influence which repeated in July and November and therefore making 2008 a very karmic and positive year in Ryan's life.
In February 2020, transiting Jupiter formed a conjunction to Ryan's natal North Node once again, returning throughout July and August. This influence will bring circumstances which will affect his future and the next few years could turn out to be one of those periods which Ryan is likely to remember for the rest of his life. He may find himself searching for the ultimate truth to philosophical questions such as “Why am I here?”, "Am I doing the right thing?".This will be a time to discover his true destiny and decisions that he makes now will affect him for years to come. He achieved so much the last time this planetary influence occurred in 2008, I'm sure there will be more great opportunities ahead. However, this will not be an exact copy of 12 years ago and may involve doing something completely new which will bring public attention. I feel very strongly that this will involve writing or publishing, perhaps his autobiography. Sudden, instant success is often an effect of Jupiter conjunct the North Node and Ryan can expect a massive life change from 2020 onwards.
In mid-May 2020 transiting Uranus began to form a positive trine aspect to Ryan's natal Jupiter. Continuing until mid-April 2021, this influence will bring unexpected lucky breaks and good fortune, as well as a sense of freedom and the ability to take on new experiences. He will feel more daring than usual and willing to take part in something out of the ordinary. This increased optimism may happen through a sudden opportunity for personal advancement or the easing of a restrictive, possibly worrying situation. However, because this is a long-term planetary influence covering a time period of 11 months, the effects could also be more subtle. For example, he may become interested in ways of thinking that may open up a different level of understanding, allowing him to escape from the normal routines of his life, through a gradual change in outlook. This period could also bring him new involvement with spiritual teachings, or other techniques of mind expansion. He will be open to radical new approaches and he may want to teach others what he has learned. This period in Ryan's life represents an enormous opportunity to broaden his horizons, meet new people and enjoy experiences that will make his life much more interesting and rewarding.
There are certain planetary aspects which occur very rarely in a person's life which some people never experience at all. One such aspect began for Ryan earlier this year when transiting Pluto began to form a square aspect to his natal Venus back in February. This long-term aspect will become exact during 2021 and continue to be a powerful influence throughout 2022, finally coming to an end in January 2023. The next three years could bring intense experiences through his contact with people who will have a profound influence upon him - although perhaps not always in his best interests. Issues over control might emerge, so it may become necessary for Ryan to eliminate what - or who - is no longer relevant in his life.
Between now and 2023, Ryan will no longer be able to keep any resentments he may have under wraps, and could, therefore, feel pushed to do and say things that may not be pleasant. This period will be about uncovering issues and perhaps secrets. Anyone who pushes the boundaries by trying to manipulate or take advantage of him in some way, will probably wish they hadn't, as he will be taking no prisoners. Something which has been brewing for a long time will come to a head. This square from Pluto may bring scenarios which will force him to confront his deepest feelings, fears or compulsions. I see a major reconstruction, or dismantling of something in Ryan's life and what is hidden beneath the surface - either literally or psychologically - may become exposed.
Self-expression through some sort of creative or artistic project will be strong and I get the feeling that this might be provocative in some way, or display the darker side of human nature. Transiting Pluto square to his natal Venus will bring an element of exploration and experimentation into Ryan's life, including the discovery or development of previously unsuspected or hidden talents - but will these be his own talents, or other people's?
