Timing the Response to COVID-19 with Astrology

Kelly Surtees joins Tony Howard to talk about some of the complex planetary patterns correlating with the COVID-19 crisis. Kelly looks at the timing of shifts at various points in the months between February and May 2020 and what that might mean in terms of how we respond and what types of problems we’ll encounter along the way.

The Invitation to Descent with Saturn-Pluto and COVID-19

In this podcast, Lynn Bell and Laurence Hillman talk about the current pandemic in the context of Saturn and Pluto in Capricorn. They invite us to consider the invitation to descent during a Pluto time, the need to “go down” and within, and the unique challenges this moment offers all of us.

Just How Serious is This Saturn-Pluto Transit?

Blog Post from Tony Howard

Last year I re-read the Saturn-Pluto chapter in Cosmos and Psyche in preparation for the Saturn-Pluto conjunction in Capricorn in January 2020. It’s a pretty heavy piece of writing and research, and I thought, “this has to be unnecessarily bleak – surely there’s a positive side to this.” Turns out the weight of the info matches the weight of this transit.

Here are just a few highlights of what Tarnas found correlates with Saturn-Pluto times like those we’re in now: “Challenging historical periods marked by a pervasive quality of intense contraction…grim awakenings and sudden breakdowns, whether political, economic or psychological…moral darkness…perceiving and constellating danger, subversive threat, and malefic shadow elements in a rigidly polarized world view…global economic and political collapse and fascist empowerment…mass suffering, disease, death and fear…the violent unpredictability of life…intensified collective awareness of dire threats to the human species…” And that’s just for starters.

Mars, Saturn and Covid-19

Blog Post from Kelly Surtees

I’m not a mundane astrologer and I don’t specialize in global astrology trends, but I do have some ideas about how the current planetary trends will describe the feelings and changes we’re all dealing with.

The restrictions regarding daily life, travel, and social interactions are likely to peak around the time Mars will conjunct Saturn, at 0 Aquarius on March 31.

Think about that date as maximum limitation, or peak restriction. The six weeks both before and after that date are like the lead in and fade out periods to that conjunction. In the lead up, as the planetary conjunction gets stronger, there’s an increase in worry and restriction, with lots of fear about what might – or might not – happen. In the fade out period, things being to subside, gradually and slowly but in a noticeable way.

Locked in, Closed off, and Still Not Separate

Blog Post with Lynn Bell

On Sunday, when the tally of the coronavirus leapt to hundreds in Italy, food flew off the shelves in Milan. The city is ghostlike. People are pulling back into the smallest number of contacts and closing off from the outside world.

The last time a cluster of outer planets formed in Capricorn, the Berlin Wall came down. In late 1989, Saturn joined Uranus and Neptune, planets that can shatter structures or dissolve them. The Cold War was swept away. Wave after wave of connection came in the years that followed, riding the innovation of the web, born with the exact Uranus-Neptune conjunction 1992-1995. The world has become more connected. Last year more than 1.4 billion people travelled through the world’s airports.

Saturn Pluto and Current Events 2020

Blog Post with Lynn Bell

Quarantine comes from forty, the forty days that were initially imposed to contain the plague. Forty is also the mystical one-ninth of a circle, and the number of days that Venus is retrograde. While current quarantines have been set at fourteen days, this notion of an imposed sealing off, reminds us of the alchemical process of containment. A number of people have asked me about the archetypal meaning of the coronavirus. We are being asked to go inward, to contain something, to step back from our connections with others temporarily. Saturn rules boundaries, and particularly the boundary between inner and outer worlds. Capricorn is, after all, the 12th sign from Aquarius, and so symbolizes the group’s confinement.

The Astrology of Social Distancing 2020

Blog post by Dru Ish

Saturn is digging in its heels at the final degree of Capricorn. The last degree of any sign in the Zodiac is never easy terrain; the Anaretic, or Critical 29th degree, holds immense potency, intensification and stress. As Saturn goes through this chrysalis, the Capricorn dialogue of the recent past centring commerce, capitalism, “the rich” now shifts toward the Aquarian narrative of life itself; togetherness, solidarity, community, being connected in isolation.
