Below is a reminder of what i wrote for this astrological ingress. The word ‘unprecedented’ is getting old but that isn’t to say it’s not true: these are unprecedented times. The keywords for Aquarius are ‘I know’. Aquarius is a sign that likes to know. It seems we are in the contractions (they will last for a while, even after Covid19 is gone or in remission) of the birthing of the Age of Aquarius. Harder than we expected but that’s because it wasn’t on our own doorstep. It seems to me that the best thing we can do at the moment is to cultivate Beginner’s Mind, the mind of not knowing. That way we might learn so much more.

We all have a sense that the real terrorists, the dangerous ones, can be the policy makers. What do you think these days of the invisible hands that are guiding our social and political lives? Are they level headed and acting for the greatest good? The impulse is there. It’s quite possible that terrible things bring out the best in people, even in our leaders. Mars wants to kick Saturn into gear. Who’s in charge (of your life)? The algorithms which corral us into boxes, rendering us powerless to see or knowledge of the authentic self which is a reliable guide to our ideals?
