Feeling heavy? Depressed?  Lots of negative thinking? What’s going on? Firstly, Mercury is being aspected by Saturn exactly again into Friday’s new moon and does not get free of a 3-degree orb until after May 25th.  This can create a lot of negative thinking and we have to catch ourselves as we do not want to plant too many weed seeds.   Secondly, Mars is in Saturn’s nakshatra of Pushya (Cancer 3.20-16.40) and while it is a very auspicious constellation for luck and connection to the knowledge and the Guru, on a mental level, Mars is still channeling Saturn’s energy. At the same time, Saturn will be aspected by Mars by an exact 210-degree aspect into June 1st and the orb of influence of three degrees is May 26-June 6th but it is already being felt by frustration, anger and indecision, and fear.   Jupiter is also moving toward conjunction with Rahu in the mean node system into May 26th and the true node system into June 2nd and this distorts Jupiter’s energies.  Venus is in Ardra until May 20th and that is always a heavy place.  It will go into Purnarvasu nakshatra next and that will provide some needed optimism but until then we have to deal with a new moon in Taurus into Friday. 

In the world, we are bombarded by the Ukraine war, the budget deficit ceiling, the banking crisis, and the increasing corruption in our political world as the media continues to divide us. 

Do we go into a bomb shelter? Most of the world will have a few drinks, take some drugs, smoke a pack of cigarettes, or eat themselves into a numbed-out stupor.  That can work for a bit but it is destructive and takes you out of your deepest being.  People on a spiritual path binge-watch Netflix or overeat themselves into a stupor.

Why are we so afraid of our emotions?  We have to remember that they are not real and they change quickly and we have to do enough meditation and yoga to witness our mind so that we can be free.  Those of us on a spiritual path have to go through them. Feel them deeply. The process of feeling them can facilitate their deep release. What are we afraid of? Are we those stupid feelings or something bigger?  Go deep into them and the attention of your consciousness will facilitate their release.  Feel the depth of these emotions with your full consciousness and you can help

We can always do a bit of spiritual or astrological bypassing and that can help with meditation too but remember you are so much bigger than your emotions. If a storm is happening,  be  Billy Buddy in Herman Melville’s classic.  Strap yourself to the mast and go through it. In the end, you will find that your eternal Self is so much bigger than a few waves you are the waves and you are the ocean.  How can you be afraid of the very water that you are made of?    Stay strapped to the mast, whatever storms come, say, I am here and let them come through me.  How can we run away from a tiny emotion?  What power can it have over us?

Don’t the storms make you deeper and a more powerful person? Embrace them? Realize that you are unchanging and nothing can touch you. You are invincible. Merge with the water and become One.

So if you are not able to do that you can always do the following:

1) This is a time to be disciplined about your meditation practice and yoga and other spiritual practices because these lighten the burden and give us more strength to deal with everything. The tendency is to skip that which is good for us when we are challenged but that’s like taking off a winter coat when it’s below zero.

2) Donate time and money to help those in need. This is one way to address karma and by getting out of our stuff, we feel better and move through our karma.

3) Be disciplined with diet and exercise. The tendency is to use food to cover up difficult emotions or skip exercise because we feel tired or lazy. So much illness (6th house) can be overcome if we are disciplined in doing what is good for us. Avoid addictive behaviors and non-life-supporting actions especially now. The tendency is to what to escape but usually this leads to more difficult problems quickly. Maybe not stay up until 2 am watching 10 episodes on Netflix and get some extra rest.

4) Spend time with spiritual knowledge, attend spiritual gatherings, and hang around with positive people at this time.

5) Do transformational healing work to move through these energies.

This current phase will lighten up a bit after May 20th and then after May 25th but Saturn prepares to go stationary retrograde June 9 into the station/retrograde on June 17th and that is always a bit heavy and retrograde Saturn always causes more trouble.
