The Astrology of Social Distancing 2020

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, billionaires, “the rich” now shifts toward the Aquarian narrative of life itself; togetherness, solidarity, community, being connected in isolation.

When Saturn ingressed into Capricorn on the Winter Solstice (Northern Hemisphere) 2017, its presence was felt immediately. Saturn descended with its heavy hand of stern realism and immediate lockdown. Remember the travel ban, the wild fires in Southern California, the Catalonian push for Independence and North Korea’s missile program?  Shit got real immediately.

Grieving in the surveillance state

Pay your respects.
Grieve your loss.
Let people grieve without intrusion.

Grief is raw and vulnerable wether it’s a bushfire, a basketball player, or a political atrocity. 

Writing, “Wait til the end,” to watch someone deeply grieving cry or lose their shit is not cool. It shows how disconnected we are from our own grief and normalises personal intrusion.

The limits of this surveillance culture are on us.

Watch what you watch.

Eclipses are the real deal, baby!

AQUARIUS

 

The energy we’re experiencing is of release, and it’s coming through the filter of Aquarius. 

Aquarius is symbolized by the water bearer – it’s not THE WATER itself. The deep waters of emotion are not the easiest of landscapes for Aquarius to traverse. It’s an air sign; it stays one step outside the emotional realm though it wants to talk about it, think about it, connect because of it, but emotions come in the water bearer’s vessel – one step detached from the personal. 

This releasing is personal. It’s not about anyone else, it’s about YOU. What do you need to release? What emotions do you have stored in your vessel from past hurts, experiences and lost dreams that you continue to bring into the present?

It’s an easy go-to to think about cutting chords with the toxic ex, the manipulative boss, people in the world that don’t support you – but the challenge is to ask ourselves: how do I contribute to my life being as it is? What have I poured my emotional energy into, and what am I getting out of it?

Projection is a hamster wheel. We can harness this extremely frustrating, but powerful, energy right now and release old patterns, opening the way for more sincere emotional connections, with ourselves and others. 

Mars is SO HOT right now in cool-cat Aquarius. TOO HOT TO HANDLE.

Pluto and Saturn are holding space for our grief over in Capricorn. LET IT OUT.

Uranus is challenging us to align with what we value now – because times have changed and so have we!!! LET IT GO.

Neptune is confusing the fuck out of everything making us think that the answers are in an IG post – endlessly searching, scrolling for an out. ENQUIRE WITHIN.

It’s an interesting mix to say the least.

It’s intense because the damn walls are breaking. The Water Bearer’s vessel is broken open and we have to deal with what we’ve been carrying around. Water needs an external source to give it shape and definition and without addressing what’s really going on, this water damage can seep into every aspect of our lives. Aquarius wants to detach and stand back, but we need to step in to step up.
