Some people don’t believe in astrology, the same way they believe that herbs don’t work, or Western medicine is better than Eastern, though Chinese medicine, for example, has been treating billions of people over many centuries.
That’s cool if you don’t want to believe the paragraph-long horoscope you find in most newspapers. It’s actually a lot more complicated than that. But most sane people will admit that planets have strong gravitational pulls and act on us just as the Moon pulls the tides back and forth each day.
In ten days’ time, we’ll be undergoing a pretty seismic shift, astrologically speaking. Saturn, planet of structure and planning, will go direct (it’s been retrograde since February 7th), while the planets Uranus and Pluto square one another. That’s a pretty big deal, since it happens only every 70 years or so. The last time is happened, the Great Depression was in full force, people were suffering everywhere, Adolph Hitler rose to power in Germany, and the entire world was plunged into war. Various economies were ruined, and took years to rebuild following an Allied victory.
Which of course does mean that we should all quit living, go underground and drink beer all day while listening to Joy Division. But planets are bigger and stronger than we are individually. Chances are, if you’re not on the path the universe wants you to be on, it will not so subtly shoved you onto a better path ASAP.
My advice? Cooperate!
Going fetal for a bit may be the best bet, as long as you’re willing to listen to what’s going on in your heart and in the world at large. What you’re called to do right now you’re probably supposed to do, as long as it doesn’t involve harming yourself or other people. Stop fighting what’s more powerful, and learn to cooperate. That’s the message of this time in history. Don’t let “them” tell you that someone (some group, religion, or other target) is at fault for all your problems. Don’t be that easily manipulated.
Instead, taking a temporarily passive stance, just long enough to listen to the sounds of your life calling, may well help to avert whatever darkness want to rise in the world.
