In 2020 we have not one but two conjunctions that mark the turn of a generation, and of an era in history. On Jan. 12, Saturn and Pluto in Capricorn formed their once-per-33-year conjunction. On Dec. 21, 2020, Jupiter and Saturn, both now in Aquarius, form a conjunction in the first degree of that sign. Read more...
Dear Friend and Reader:
Mars is in the process of changing signs. Today it’s in the last degree of Capricorn (a degree with a conspiratorial feeling, in case that vibe is in the air), and it ingresses Aquarius at 3:43 pm EDT on Monday.
We live in the time when you can see photos of the Martian landscape. I don’t know about you, but I think this is over-the-top incredible. Not sure which rover took this one.
The conspiratorial theme is now the one dominating the discussion on the internet. Yet we’re about to live through six weeks of Mars in Aquarius — the very six weeks when everyone is supposed to stay home and apart.
This may connect people to their anger at this situation. One month ago we were living normally and being told to wash our hands. Now much of the United States resembles a ghost town.
I think we need to be asking, and demanding answers: what is this and how did it happen? Yet before people get there, the fact of the disruption of our lives is going to gradually start dawning on the population.
Dear Friend and Reader:
I trust this letter finds you doing your best to take care of yourself. At this juncture, your first responsibility is to stay healthy, and then to keep the people around you healthy.
Whatever this situation is about — and I know enough to know that I don’t know — making sure your body is well-rested, well-hydrated and well nourished will all help. Of course, many are being thrown into the most stressful situation of their lives, which is not good for one’s immune system. So we are on the razor’s edge.
One of the most challenging things to deal with in this moment is going to be people’s psychology. We have now been put on notice that anyone you see on the street might kill you by breathing. Perhaps check with your inner teacher and ask if this is really true.
Before I get into the New Moon, as of Saturday/Sunday, Saturn is now in Aquarius. This begins the test of a new social system, lasting through July 1 (around the time when we’re told we’re getting out of quarantine).
