AN ASTROLOGICAL PERSPECTIVE ON WHAT’S HAPPENING!
After reading an article by a popular and outside-the-mainstream doctor on the current crisis I feel like I have a good sense of what this is all about.
The article was essentially about “adulting”- the need to grow up and start thinking for and depending upon oneself rather than projecting a childish need to be “taken care of” onto a government or any other authority.
And as many of you know – astrologically speaking, this crisis was heralded by the big Saturn/Pluto conjunction in Capricorn this January.
So let’s see…Saturn represents authorities.
And if you have attended one of my classes you may remember I talk about Saturn/3rd Chakra representing the need to establish ourselves as our own (internal) authority. And Capricorn represents institutions- government, science, religion, medicine- that we have created as a group.
And lastly our favorite bad-guy, Pluto- god of the Underworld who serves us by taking away things that no longer serve us, working them over and then releasing(re-birthing) them in a new form.
So I’m seeing this moment- 2/3 of the way through the Pluto in Capricorn phase- as THE defining moment of the phase. That in fact, our challenge as individual human beings is to now step into our own authority.
When we do so we take energy away from those institutions that no longer serve us and they wither and die- leaving room for new institutions to grow in their place. This is the promise of the AGE OF AQUARIUS – but in order to get there (we ain’t there yet folks) we have to pass this test.
Now you’ve got your work cut out for you!
