The last time that Saturn and Pluto conjoined in Capricorn was in 1518, 3 months after Martin Luther nailed his theses to the church door at Wittenberg and began the Protestant revolution against the transnational power of the day: the Catholic Church. 

Saturn and Capricorn both describe governments and the establishment, and Pluto describes a major power shift within that. So what are the equivalents today? 

The transnational power of today within Europe is firstly the EU, and Brexit formally took place a couple of weeks after the conjunction in January. So because of the astrology I think we have to read that event as pre-figuring a major shake-up of the EU and its power structures. I am stating this as a factual inference, not as a judgment in favour of or against the EU (it is very hard not to be taken as such these days.) This major shake-up will be reflected in Neptune's hard transit to the EU Angles, whic…


It seems to me that the Coronavirus strategy is primarily focused around protecting old people. With Jupiter, Saturn, and Pluto in Capricorn, this makes sense. In an age that idolises youth - where the older vote in the referendum was dismissed as a denial of the future for young people, and where older women become 'invisible' - maybe old people are now seen as having more value? The US Presidential election is being fought between men in their 70s.

I reckon there are 2 things going on around the Coronavirus: there are the governmental responses, as described by Mars' Capricornian (government) passage across Jupiter, Pluto and, in a week's time, Saturn. This will complete the lockdown, and may well include a military element (Mars-Saturn): soldiers on the streets. And that may be because of the rebellious element of Aquarius, the sign that M…


My personal opinon is that we need to get this Coronavirus done ASAP. There is a Mars-Jupiter conjunction in Capricorn at present, applying for the next 2 days, so the government (Capricorn) is putting up a big (Jupiter) fight (Mars). With any luck, events will overtake their strategy over the next 2 weeks as Mercury (transmission) approaches a conjunction with Neptune in Pisces (pandemic). Life is for the living, life and death between them are a part of a much bigger dream. Remember the suffering caused by austerity, we can now learn from that (as Saturn starts to leave Capricorn) and not enact something far worse. 

Some people think I am being callous when I say these things, but I am not. Choices have to be made, and more deaths than there might have been - mostly on the part of people in poor health - needs to be weighed against a disastrous breakdown at a basic level, which is what we are facing. Pluto in Capricorn stuff. I've already been called things for saying…


If we are any sort of healer, then one of our functions in the community is to stand apart from the collective compulsions, as real as they can appear, and be a still point that, energetically, can feed back to the collective in a good way. This is the North of the Medicine Wheel, the place of the Mind and the Elder, that is cool like Air and has objectivity.
This principle applied to the referendum division we experienced in the UK over the last few years, and it was unfortunately rare to find healers who were prepared to do their job and appreciate both sides. In the US, there was the now infamous 2016 panel of 12 astrologers, 11 of whom predicted Hillary Clinton would win the election. That is just the collective liberal bias that astrologers are prone to: the 'nice guys', the 'conscious people' vote Democrat. Or Labour. Nonsense. The problem with the right wing is that they often don't care enough; the problem with the left wing is that they are often i…


So what do you reckon, the Coronavirus will go epidemic around Mercury going Direct in Pisces on 16th March? And pandemic around Mercury conjoining Neptune in Pisces on 4th April? Whatever those terms mean... you probably get my drift.

The thought I was having this morning on Coronavirus was that it shows us just how much we are one world these days. The whole world - apart from 3rd world countries who have more important things to think about like the next meal - is plugged into this flu in a panicky kind of way, which is unfortunate, and it's easy to try and blame someone, like 'the media', but like most things, it is just collective consciousness at work, which is why I am not a conspiracist.

--------------------- But like I say, it is showing us just how connected we all are nowadays, and it is good to feel that, because it is too easy to view our trade…

The idea of Fate can seem like an affront to our self-respect as human beings, to the idea that we have Free Will, that we make our own choices in life. It can seem like a throw-back to primitive superstition.

And this polarity is understandable when you look at our religious background with its all-powerful, all-determining God. We want none of that, and rightly so.
Our destiny is no longer controlled by God but by ourselves, we have Free Will, and we are guided by reason.

It’s said that we become that which we oppose, and in our flight away from God and towards reason and science, we have created a determinism just as rigid: a universe governed by immutable physical laws, with human beings as just one more expression of those laws. And without even the divine element that God, for all his faults, brought.

But that determinism tends to be hidden because, at least in the West, in our day-to-day lives we do have the fr…
