As we approached the last Eclipse season, which included the ultra important Saturn conjunct Pluto formation, we wrote how the stock market and economy would be in turmoil and in danger of a great fall.
And of course we have been writing for quite some time now that our world and country are on an unstoppable destiny into the Age of Aquarius. The writings have also communicated that the grave darkness from difficult events would lead into the light and love and truth for that new Age.
January was a major “turning point time period” and it held major events that are challenging our human family in a major way
January held with it a Lunar Eclipse Full Moon in Cancer; the all important Saturn conjunct Pluto force of destruction; as well as Spirit and mind awakening Uranus switching back to Direct motion.
The Corona virus and near crash of the stock market is initiating the Chaos versus Order theme we have also been speaking about- Or as could happen more severely: Chaos leading to Martial Law.
We must admit that the virus and subsequent downturn of the stock market and economy have brought many to unbridled Fear and Panic.
And that fear and panic are bringing us to a vulnerability that leaves us quite susceptible to being controlled and dominated by our societal leaders. Look at World War II and Germany.
It feels so unnatural to be confined to our homes and neighborhoods, to have schools and sports events and restaurants and gatherings all be cancelled or done remotely when possible.
These events all opened widely just after Mercury went back back Direct, showing us what direction our world was moving toward.
At around the same time, the Democrats’ primaries suddenly showed a quick pivot to Joe Biden for President. Many candidates dropped out of contention and gave their endorsement to Biden. The Democratic Party is now rallying around Biden, and hoping to stop the Bernie train of Revolution and Transformation of the USA.
Wanting back the “normality” of the Obama years is certainly a a large part of the desire for Biden as President, especially so as Trump being defeated is so important to so many. Many people see him as destroying the idealistic values of the United States.
Yet in the bigger picture Trump is just an actor, as Shakespeare said more eloquently, in the drama destiny of our lives (“all the world’s a stage”). This period of time is part of the transition between Ages.
What is going on now cannot be controlled by the collective ego of the USA and World. It is part of one of the widest cycles astrologically: 2160 years long for an Age, the Pisces Age just passing.
It is time for each of us to let go another level of our individual egos, to allow our Soul Self to direct us.
This movement into the age of Aquarius is bigger than each of our egos, bigger than all our egos together.
We will find our center and our faith within our Soul/Spirit selves, which are connected to the Universe and its pillars of Truth and Love.
Our fears and doubts are natural sometimes, but if we allow ourselves to be taken over by the panic, we will be letting go of our connections to “our better angels”, to the connections that bring us all together as One Family, dysfunctional as it is right now.
This coming week or 10 days should help our journey, and help us to connect with Higher Soul self and Universe.
That is because we experience during that time the Spring Equinox, followed by the big new beginnings of the Aries New Moon. And we experience Mars conjunct Jupiter too.
Before that however, the Moon enters the darkening last quarter of its cycle on Monday March 16.
The Moon is in Sagittarius then, square to the Sun in Pisces. So while Pisces may desire to keep processing one’s feelings and thoughts, Moon in Sagittarius is ready to take the ride forward.
And on the 19th, the Sun moves into the annual Spring Equinox, which is the beginning of Sun in Aries for 30 days.
There will likely be some feelings of restlessness, of wanting to start something new, of the start of Spring Fever.
Go with these feelings, especially if they help you to leave any debilitating feelings of fear and panic.
Yes we need to take precautions and be as safe as possible, but we do not need to fall into the pits of despair.
If you meditate or find your inner peace and strength in nature or something else, that centering will lead you to wherever you need to be now. Spirit will not let you down.
Following the crowd of panicked sheep will lead you astray, off your spiritual path, losing your Self in dis-empowering Fear.
Do not berate your self because you are feeling much fear sometimes. Just do not surrender to that fear. Stay above water so you do not drown.
Perhaps you are someone who is more extroverted, and if so be around people who are not debilitated by fear. Be around those who keep hope alive, love alive, truth alive.
Be around those you feel you can be your authentic self with, those who “see” you and appreciate you. And/or be with your healers and counselors, those who care about you and do not judge you. Yes they may challenge you and hold you accountable, but they do not help you to feel bad about yourself .
The Spring Equinox is on March 19 at 11:50 PM EDT. The Sun moves into Aries, a sign of self assertion and self honoring, of wanting to be true to self, to be true to how one is created not how one is “supposed” to be by programmed societal values.
Aries is independent, not that sociable, gets right to the point straight forward and direct.
They can be quite competitive, forceful at times, and appreciating of new beginnings like Spring. They can be quite brave too, not letting fear defeat them.
Next week, on the 24th, the Moon catches up to the Sun in Aries, creating the New Moon in Aries. That is when the real time of new beginnings happens.
So this week there may be false starts, or at least feeling of not quite ready; or instead feelings of great restlessness to get moving.
Just after the Equinox and before the next new moon, there is an important planetary event: Mars conjunct Jupiter in Capricorn on March 20.
That is just a few days before the New Moon in Aries. This Jupiter conjunct Mars happens exactly where Saturn made conjunction with Pluto: at 22+ degrees of Capricorn.
This will trigger that Saturn/Pluto connection from January 12 this year. Watch for issues with the stock market or virus to be triggered.
What happened for you back in December/January? Where do you stand with those issues now.
Mars conjunct Jupiter could be a motivator or inspiring element for you. It is an appetizer for the powerful Jupiter conjunct Pluto on April 4.
On April 3 at 5:30 PM local time, I am giving a talk about 2020 and what is happening and can be expected in our world now. The talk is in Sedona Arizona. The next day Saturday April 4 I will make that talk a webinar, again live, but on Zoom this time.
We will look at Presidential campaigns and charts, the USA chart and current and coming events. And we will discuss personal transformation also, aligned with Age of Aquarius consciousness. Fee is $20 for the talk.
This begins a series of 4 such talks, one each month for 4 months. To be at all 4 of them will cost $70. If you have some interest in the Sedona talk or the Webinar, contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I am also planning on regular podcasts and videos during these challenging times.
