EYE ON A CRISIS AND SUFFERING AND FEAR:
We have discussed how afflicted Jupiter in Capricorn can lack good judgment and be falsely optimistic whereas Saturn with Pluto in Capricorn is causing the mass hysteria and reality of the virus out of control. We have to learn to balance hope, practicality, and reality. The virus is very real and we cannot pretend and not take precautions and it give us a time to rest and stop our crazy life. Sun in Pisces still probably has us too hopeful and we have to get a reality check in taking care of ourselves, our families and our communities. Too many of us are in disbelief.
Any astrologer at best can only be 70% in predicting the outcome and the end of this menace and at the same time we all need some light at the end of the tunnel to hang on to. I do see things getting better after June but do these things just vanish forever? Was not the case with AIDS which has infected 74 million people although they are better able to manage it with drugs. Can our economic world just bounce back after 3-4 months of shut-down? My compassion goes out to all who are going through deep suffering at this time. We will have to explore deep and unpleasant emotions of grief, suffering, fear and we have to in the end turn within to God and find peace and help others by donating if we can to those in need.
I have studied economic and political cycles for years and there is a cycle for World Wars every 40 years and it was due in 2019 and I have always worried about it. We last saw that cycyle We had Iran/Iraq in 1979 and the start of World War 2 in 1939. Would it be China, or Russia or Iran that would start it? We are in World War 3 as the pandemic has reached almost every nation and New York City and parts of Italy are definitely war zones. The outcome of the war is up to mankind. Do we make good decisions and take care of people or continue the old ways? There was never any money for the people or universal health care but now the government will cover health care costs and testing. Billions of dollars are going to upgrade hospital care. We are on a the verge of a societal phase transition. Do our leaders change their ways or do they get ousted or do they go for sweeping dictatorial powers like has happened for a long-time in Venezuela and now has started in Hungary? The amazing power control and power plays happening in the world and movement toward dictatorships and police states is very trouble and it is something we have to watch. When government gets more power they rarely let it go. Think of the Patriot act and what it lead and what Edward Snowden uncovered.
We have to think of the time of the Mahabharta and the great war with Krishna at the chariot. I do think there are major Light Workers here to help us through this crisis and it is a time to turn to more meditation and helping people come to spirituality and that will help the outcome but there is a huge war happening on the subtle level.
The people who thought they were in power and running the world for their own benefit are also scrambling. There is a big fight for power with Pluto and Saturn conjunct in Capricorn and who it ends will be up to us and how much light, care and compassion we can bring to our cities and neighborhood. Do we fall to the darkness of Pluto who wants to control or do we turn to love and compassion and helping others?
Still if we search deeply there is a underlying core of well being there that we have to grasp onto and it is there with Venus in Taurus now until July 31st and soon the Sun will give us more strength in Aries April 14-May 14th. Mars moving away from Saturn in Capricorn now will give us more courage to be a warrior and help others.
If you are challenged, we have to reach to Pluto and surrender and Divine will. Fighting “what is” and saying it shouldn’t be this way plagues the mind and cause our current discomfort. We do not have to keep going through what we are going through. Surrender is the key. Once you surrender to the ineffable and once you take it upon yourself to rely on the grace of God, then you have a chance to be free. It does take a shift of the mind and doing enough meditation practice so that we can reach back and find that Lightness of Being. If we do not go there we are going to get gripped by Saturn’s grumbling and complaining.
And still we have to avoid spiritual by-pass and be real with what is going on in our life and somehow reach back to the power of the very strong Venus in the sky that is also a great Guru. There is underlying it all, an ineffable lightness of Being. If we can let go of the heavy luggage and baggage of the mind that is carrying a 100 pound suitcase through the airport when we just need a 20 pound carry-on. Let go of the baggage. What will be. Find the those unbearable moments of lightness and love to fall back on or you will be doomed to the gnawing and complaining mind. Find the sweetness of Venus and trust in the Divine. Enjoy simple things now by doing puzzles with your family or gardening together or finding family time to share love.
We are always given a choice. Do we get caught in the media hype that wants to send us over the cliff or do we turn to the Divine and focus on all the good thing.
Have a great weekend!
