Virgo, Pisces and the Corruption of Healing

Dear Friend and Reader:

Virgo is the sign of healing. We could weave many yarns around how it evolved that way from a primary association with agriculture and food storage, though it has. Virgo, a cousin of the 6th house, represents practitioners, treatment spaces, and is worth studying for all matters of health and wellness.

Virgo’s association with food is a reminder to “let food be thy medicine.” In my experience, the food we eat is the single most significant determiner of wellness.

The expression has a second part, though these days, it’s not safe to “let medicine be thy food,” since it was probably made in a lab in China, and you don’t know the safety or cross-reaction data. (My guest on Friday’s Planet Waves FM, Rebecca Culshaw, will be talking about off-label use of pharmaceuticals.)

Chiron is Associated with Virgo and Sagittarius

When Chiron was discovered in 1977, and named for the first surgeon and teacher of medicine in Greek mythology, it became associated with Virgo. For more than 46 years, this association has gradually strengthened.

Though I prefer not to use the term “planetary ruler” with modern discoveries, Chiron has a strong affinity to Virgo — one of its two most important facets.

The other is the questing aspect of Chiron, which has a strong affinity to Sagittarius. These two primary and equally important expressions of Chiron are the topic of another article.

Speaking of Chiron, Mars in Libra is about to make an opposition to it. This happens once every two years, and is the full expression of both planets. It makes available a kind of spiritual warrior quality that we need dearly today.

Current Events in Virgo — New Moon and Mercury Direct

For Thursday and Friday we have back-to-back events in Virgo: one is the New Moon and the other is Mercury stationing direct. These are fleeting events, describing immediate developments and relationship situations. But they gain extra emphasis for happening close to one another; they are part of the same idea.

As this happens, we are witnessing a national PR push for both “a new variant of covid” and also a new “vaccine” that to me describes the further corruption of medicine. Before I look at the facts involved, let’s check out an ultra-simplified version of the New Moon chart.

The diagram shows three objects in Virgo, and three in Pisces. In Virgo are Mercury (Virgo’s traditional planet) stationing direct, plus the Moon and the Sun at the New Moon.

Events in Virgo seem ordinary enough — a New Moon, which happens there once a year; and Mercury direct in one of its own signs, which happens occasionally. However, Mercury retrograde represents a question rather than a statement. If the question is not addressed, there’s likely to be a misunderstanding.

Retrograde Mercury is also an essential time for reflection and self-inquiry. In Virgo, the message is to stick to the details, and get them right. One essential quality of Mercury moving to direct motion is that it can come with a perk of information.

At its best, Virgo is inspired by knowledge and curiosity. It’s one of the most important signs representing reasoning and curiosity.

Slow-Movers Aligned in Pisces

Developments in Virgo have counterparts in Pisces. There are three slow-moving objects moving through the last sign. Across the dial in Pisces are Saturn, Nessus and Neptune. You can see the oppositions drawn in the purple lines that cross the Solar System. The Earth is in the middle of the diagram, not shown.

The most recent arrival of the three to Pisces is Saturn, which changed signs from Aquarius in March. Despite its unfriendly reputation, Saturn is the saving grace here; the boundary; the reality principle asking to be invoked.

Next is Nessus, which arrived in Pisces in 2014. Nessus is a centaur cousin of Chiron, with a distinct dark side. This is related to revenge, transgressions, the danger of “gray-areas,” and the consequences of a long chain of events.

The story of Nessus involves the conveyance of poison both as the coating on an arrow, and its transmission in the form of a “sexual fidelity potion.” With Nessus, the karma returns to its source, though this can take a while. Unremembered events set things in motion, though the boomerang — or the poison — eventually comes home.

Then there is Neptune, which entered Pisces in 2011. Neptune in Pisces is the invisible whale in the room of society. It represents the current obsessions with fantasy, virtual reality, and points to both anesthesia and denial. Cannabis, the ultimate Neptune in Pisces state of mind, is now part of mainstream American society.

Neptune is the most sublime essence in astrology, and it’s also the easiest to corrupt. The same quality that inspires poetry also describes pernicious liars. What inspires musicians to compose also can lead them to use heroin.

Do we want to go back to this? Who is pretending that it helped anything?

When Planets Oppose Neptune or Nessus

When planets oppose Neptune, that’s a warning that the floor is slippery, and the search for truth (such as it exists) is libel to slip. In this setup, the Moon and the Sun are opposing Neptune. They are also opposing Nessus — the New Moon is opposite the midpoint of the two N planets in Pisces.

By the way — the definition of a centaur is that it crosses one or more orbits of other planets. Nessus crosses the orbit of Neptune and is similar to it. Both have associations with toxins and deception. And while you may not think of Nessus as inspiring music, actually, most of the sagas you hear about on popular radio have roots in the Nessus myth: jealousy, deceit and “he/she done me wrong.”

Relating this to the Virgo New Moon, the chart is vibrating with caution to meticulously evaluate all claims, particularly related to food and medicine. The Moon and the Sun are soaked in Neptune/Nessus, and Mercury is still retrograde (and has yet to tip its hand).

As this opposition is at full strength, we are witnessing the attempted rollout of Covid 2.0. Here in the Northeast, everywhere you go, people are “masking up.” Now we are told we have to wear an N-95 to walk down the block. The image below gives an example of the PR campaign pushing the gullible into this.

A headline across the full-width of a daily newspaper is usually reserved for something like the president getting shot.

Poughkeepsie Journal from Aug. 31. This article was picked up from USA Today, which owns the Poughkeepsie Journal and many other newspapers. It is a national story.

By the way, there are 15,000,000 claimed “variants” of the claimed SARS-CoV-2 (“covid” is not a virus, it’s a claimed disease with no defined set of symptoms). The article does not say that. There is also no original “copy” of the claimed virus to match against. So this is like someone claiming to be your 38th cousin from Ethiopia showing up for Thanksgiving and asking to move in.

By the way — the “health officials” referenced in the sub-header means the New York State Department of Health. I have covered these devoted public servants on and off since 1983. They are the ones who let people live next to a hazardous waste dump, and put young students in dioxin-contaminated dormitories. And when people get sick, as a result, they blame a virus.

Just two weeks later, The New York Times was leading the way announcing the new shot. The author is someone known personally to me — previously, she was a shill for the wholly flawed, never once validated “covid test.” I know her well enough to know that she writes exactly what she is told to write.

CDC recommends the shot for everyone aged six months or older? Really? No qualifications, warnings, or contra-indications? No mention of holding off if siblings have died of vaccine reactions? There are few things in this world that I deem more outrageous than injecting a six-month old with anything at all.

None of these outlets even meekly suggest that there is a safety problem. No mention that throughout 2020 it was reported hundreds of times that “covid” has nothing whatsoever to do with children.

The next day, MIT’s Technology Review clarifies: this is the seasonal shot — “this autumn’s covid vaccines.” Who didn’t see that one coming?

If these were reliable sources of information serving the public good, they would mention the table below, which contains reports of disease and death to the CDC following “vaccination” from 1990 through 2023. The CDC releases this data and it’s re-published in human form on a website called Open VAERS.

Reports of vaccine injury in 2021 exceeded all prior years combined. I have never seen a story about this in the “mainstream” or “corporate” media.

Media are Concealing Vast Numbers of Vaccine Deaths

No corporate media outlet is reporting that as of today, the CDC knows about 36,135 covid vaccine-related deaths. But we sure do know about George Floyd. (CDC’s own formulas say the real number may be 100 times higher.)

You have an absolute right to know about this — and to have an explanation as to why the facts above are not in every single article that references the covid shot.

Yet this is all happening in a chaotic, confused world where people are grasping for any modicum of certainty. Often what is not true seems the better option, because it is simpler.

Most people living in our time are also driven out of their ability to think or reason due to overexposure to digital conditions. Our bodies are now the targets of a terrorist campaign. Two-thirds of American adults are already taking one or more prescription meds. So to take a little more seems like a normal thing to do.

Digital technology invades and corrupts the mind, and it takes a lot of creativity and will to avoid being driven insane by our current environment.

So taking a shot of mystery juice, said to contain genetic instructions that program your body to manufacture an inflammatory toxin, can seem like a wholesome thing to do. We forget about the fact that “breakthrough cases” are the norm, and the only people who seem to “get covid” also got the shot.

You may not know that in 2019, there was a conference at the Milken Institute that centered on rebranding “the flu” and introducing an mRNA shot that would get better than the presumably dismal 23% market saturation that the flu shots of the time were getting. If you are curious, one of the best-ever Planet Waves FM programs is devoted to the issue. You don’t need to listen to more than the first 30 seconds to get the point. Both audio and video are included.

We Are On Notice to Take Care of Ourselves

I would rather not have to write about this, but I feel a moral obligation to tell you what I know; based on what I have spent nearly four years learning. Not everyone wants to read this; for those who take them, vaccines are on the level of holy communion and social responsibility.

We are in a time when you have a deep responsibility to yourself to find out what is happening in the world as it may affect you. And when you need a reasoning process, consider the precautionary principle: What do you assume in the face of missing information? Have you considered the worst-case scenario, and is the best case worth taking that risk? Do you evaluate the credibility of those offering you “information”?

What else are you doing to take care of yourself?

We all know it’s difficult to make life changes, though it helps if you have a positive motivation. Yes, it’s difficult, and there seem to be endless factors stacked against making progress. This seems to be one of the basic facts of life on our planet.

The New Moon in Virgo, paired with Mercury stationing direct, is a good time to commit to being whole and well. More than anything, Virgo is about integration, which is another way to say integrity: of mind and body, of our bodies and the Earth, and the environments in which we live.

With love,

1 thought on “Virgo, Pisces and the Corruption of Healing”

  1. Regarding Injections/shots for any disease.!! So I personally do not and have not taken injections for anything….this was how I was raised by my mother who survived bovine TB
    as a child back in about 1927. She recovered but was also quarantined for 4 yrs. So therefore she did not believe in giving us, her children any kind of vaccine- however in order to travel back to England where we were from- we had to have the small pox vaccine.
    I am 74….other than the small pox vaccine I have never had any others! And even traveled to India 2x with out any vaccines or shots! I live to tell the tale! I was also trained in the natural health professions. Anyway- just thought that might give some folks the courage to let their body do the healing.
