Its been an intense year and June does not look like it will let up with 3 eclipses on June 5th, June 21st and July 5th,  Jupiter moving retrograde toward conjunction with Pluto into June 30th, Ketu going over the US ascendant at 5-6 degrees Sagittarius (violence; sudden anger eruptions) and lots of other fun stuff that we will write about soon.

There will be lots of tensions but I think we are fearing too much and I have been wanting to move away from an astrology of fear in prediction.  I could come up with all kinds of mundane astrological predictions about the future of the US, the presidency, Covid but the world is always changing and to attach our happiness to politics, world events or living for the political messiah to come save us will always lead to disappointment.

Like the fear-mongering news media which hooks us to the TV making us feel that the world is an awful place and it is not safe to go outside, we do not want to get caught up  in that energy.  Saturn retrograde causes more fear and it is still connected to Pluto until late June  and we are to have master fear of the future or be miserable. I do think that the 2nd half of the year will better but it hardly seems that way at the moment.

The mind cannot have an emotion on an abstract level so it attaches to something in the environment and the pulse is on fear of the future because of Trump or Covid or China or racial tensions and they are all real.   I tell you, if Trump had not been elected, the fear would attach to something else.  It is weak to blame the problems in our government on one person.  Covid came out of China.  The racial tensions and economic inequalities have been building for year and China has been secretly trying to steal our technology and become number one in the world for years.   It is naive to think that if we get rid of Trump and the Democrats run the US that we will have utopia and our happiness will be secure.  The world is changing at light speed and the next 2-3 years will be that way and we are going to have to find peace through meditation, yoga or helping others or be miserable.

Saturn governs the base chakra and often spiritual folks work more on their upper chakras through meditation but if their root chakra is not developed and Saturn is weak in their chart, their financial planning and infrastructure and connection to the earth is a bit out of balance.  This can create a lot of instability and fear. Its like a pyramid. If the base of the pyramid is strongly  supported, the energies can move higher to the peak.  If we have a solid bank account and savings plans then we have the freedom to pursue our spiritual development and not be thrown off balance.  If the pyramid is inverted and there is low energy at the base and all the energy is very strong at the top, then there is no stability to support all the spiritual growth.  The current transits are challenging our systems.

If we meditate enough, we should have enough awareness to catch our thoughts and emotions and witness them.  Just tell Saturn and fear that it can go. It is not a useful energy to be living or running our lives.  Most of the time, things we fear never happen and its that 1% surprise element that knocks us out of the park.  Fear is a survival mechanism to keep us out of danger. If we stick our hand into the fire when we are small, we learn not to do it again but then maybe we are inordinately afraid of fire our entire life.   Just remember that most of what we fear does not happen and dismiss it

The Capricorn/Cancer axis  requires security and safety to move forward.   It is being hugely challenged now with Saturn and Pluto and Jupiter in Capricorn and soon a lot of planets transiting into Cancer and the eclipses connected to the Moon and  Cancer stirring things up.  Cancer represents home and is a place of where we go to feel safe and that is where we have been locked-down in and at the same time we want to be out in the world. Huge tension on this axis.

The changes that are happening in our world are very real and at the same time there is a lot of maya.  Studies are finally coming out from the CDC that Covid death rate is more like .26% and is concentrated in people over 70 with co-morbidity   problems with their heart etc.   The violence in America is very real but it is too organized to be random and the Gov. of Minnesota noted that a lot of arrested people are from out of state. If you know the people of that state they are much too warm-hearted to have such huge rioting.  We think things will calm down as Ketu moves away from the US ascendant over the next week and as Mars moves out the constellation of Satabhisak (Aquarius 6.40-20.)) )  where it is stirring up Rahu.  But still we have 3 eclipses coming this month so nothing will easily go away and new challenges will come.

Do more meditation and yoga and breath work to transform the energy. The chair pose in yoga, grounds us to the earth chakra as does the Mountain pose so that we feel our feet grasping the earth and this creates more security in our life.  Use the fear as a wake up call to handle your finances, get into your body and take care of your health.  . Look up the magicians “fear sleeve” and expose him for the fraud that he is. You are infinitely safe in this universe.

Afflicted Saturn requires us to go more slowly, to not rush around like a rabbit and not to do too much; otherwise, our anxiety level increases and we are more likely to get sick from hypertension or anxiety-related illness.   Drink calming herbal teas  like Chamomile or   Vata when anxiety comes up.  Drink more hot water  slow down, do slower exercise and yoga , get oil massages and eat more hot meals and you can keep this aspect at bay. If you are running a Saturn period or are ruled by Capricorn or Aquarius or are Sagittarius rising, you may feel the impact more over the coming year.  It can get handled. The planets are your friends if you heed their advice and do your work.

On a personal level, use the transits to transform your deep unconscious fears, which is what is coming up heal. What are you afraid of? What are you avoiding dealing with? What can you do to get in unstuck? As we discussed with the Saturn/Pluto/complex this year, it is time for deep transformation of our deepest fears so we can live life in love and joy and not in fear of the future.

Again, charts are very individual and we do not ever want to stereotype people by sign but sometimes its a way of putting one’s finger right away on a core problem for the person’s entire life.
