The 18th March as Jupiter quintiles Chiron ahead of Saturn’s ingress into Fixed Air
When faced with adversity or within times of personal or collective crisis, deep questions naturally arise. One such question revolves around belief and how deep cultural and ancestral convictions have penetrated your world view, after all it is hard to live in isolation and to not be shaped by the environment that you choose to be part of. Talking of moving an appointment forward or backwards is an alien concept to someone in China, as they talk of moving an appointment upwards or downwards, a concept nonsensical to someone in Europe. That turn of phrase is a clue to a cultural belief or attitude about time. There are astrologers who actively use astrology for predictive work for their clients, but don’t use astrology to help inform their own decisions, as is true of the famous dictum – physician heal thyself.
But this unprecedented time offers you a chance to truly observe how much of your attitudes towards illness are based on deeply ingrained familiar and cultural conditioning, how much is based on intellectual idealism, and how much is intrinsic and authentic to you. Why is this important? As it offers you an opportunity to gauge the degree to which you are living in tune with your own belief system or in alliance with someone else’s world view, an issue that will dominate our personal and collective psyche from March 22nd when Saturn enters the Fixed Air consciousness for the first time since 1991, a consciousness within which She will remain for two and a half years.
