“Fear is a funny thing, isn’t it, George? If we weren’t afraid of dying of diseases, we’d never develop the science of microbiology. That science in turn creates the possibility of germ warfare. And each superpower is so afraid that the other may wage germ warfare against it, each develops its own plagues to wipe out the human race.”

— Robert Anton Wilson and Robert Shea, The Illuminatus! Trilogy

Dear Friend and Reader:

Many people are on the edge right now. This is manifesting emotionally and physically: it’s getting harder to get through the day.

I strongly suggest we associate this with the constant war drum of doom that is coming through every single commercial media outlet, around the clock. While social media platforms are blocking those who want to discuss holistic health, traditional media has been relentless in its message of disease and death. This is exhausting, it literally sickens people, it weakens the immune system and it is not necessary.

Quite a few people do seem to enjoy it, however. In the second half of this article, I plan to describe the movement of planets through late Capricorn and talk about how that might manifest, and consider their ingress to Aquarius and the fixed star Altair.

Fear and Loathing in Walmart

Somewhere, it entered human consciousness that fear alone protects people from harm. Not caution or alertness, not sensible response, but fear. That is to say, there exists the idea that if you’re afraid or worrying, you’re protected from something bad happening to you.

Yet worrying about whether you left a candle lit will not save the house from burning down. Blowing out the candle will. That is not based on fear; that’s based on common sense and a little advanced planning.

The author of the single most infamous exposé on fraud in the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) told me he is considering taking the vaccine.

There seems to be a corresponding superstition going around that those who do not worry constantly, and those who are not afraid, are inviting illness. There is also confusion between what is supposed to be morally right and what is medically helpful. (Any time something becomes both a medical and a moral issue, beware — that is the formula for how masturbation was poisoned back in the early 18th century.)

However, fear eats the soul — and if we are wondering what is voraciously eating ours, we might consider that.

One of the most dismaying things about the Covid situation is that fear has become evidence of wisdom. Many people who have devoted their whole lives to the study and practice of holistic methods, serving clients and giving advice, have succumbed to the terror of what is said to be a respiratory illness. That it has a 99.9% recovery rate unless someone is very sick and over age 75, or in a longterm care facility (nursing home, or care home) does not seem to matter.

Instead, society responds by isolating old and infirm people in care homes, banning family and holiday visits — which makes them more sick and hastens their deaths in the name of “saving” them.

People who have studied Chinese medicine and yoga, and those who know biology, are advocating for obstructing the airway and rebreathing one’s own excrement. People who have advocated for the rights of the disabled are insisting that people with heart conditions and respiratory disease block their ability to breathe; that they mask up and shut up.

I know people who have invested their entire professional lives into exposing the lies of government, and who now accept what they are being told by official sources. The author of the single most infamous exposé on fraud in the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) told me he is considering taking the vaccine.

What do holistic healers, yoga teachers, biology majors, investigative reporters, racial justice activists and people who would join an armed militia have in common?

The Invisible Environment 

People who have claimed to be political radicals, fighting the power — whether on the political left, for issues like racial justice, or on the right, stocking semi-automatic weapons and ammo to battle with the government — are now doing whatever authority figures say to do, based on being afraid. You cannot shoot a virus with a high-powered weapon any more than a government can wage a “war on terror.”

What do holistic healers, yoga teachers, biology majors, investigative reporters, racial justice activists and people who would join an armed militia have in common?


That is the common ground: currently, ground more common than the Earth we are standing on. Digital has become so ubiquitous that it is invisible. Environments almost always are.

We all conduct our lives within the digital environment that has up-ended and destabilized intellect, culture, social patterns, intimate relationships, and just about everything else. What happens that does not involve digital? And now, if you step back and look objectively at the flow of the world, we have experienced the giant leap, the ascension, to a form of 4-D (a synthetic astral plane). From a spiritual perspective, one way you know you’re on the astral plane is how polarized everything is.

But what is the “it”? Is it all these devices, networks, databases and content systems? Or is it the state of mind created by soaking in this environment? Both the environment and its effects are difficult to see unless you are truly paying attention and have special conceptual tools.

And all that was not here before has been shoved onto this plane violently. Now work and school are on Zoom. Relationships are on Zoom. Seders are held on Zoom. Conferences are held on Zoom. Court is held on zoom. Meals are via DoorDash and UberEats. People grocery shop on the internet. Sports events are held without fans; they watch on their phones while cardboard cutouts sit in the grandstand.

Kindergarten is digital! Yes! Last year it was child abuse to let your kid sit in front of the computer for six hours. This year, it is mandatory.

Going to the doctor is now digital. Diagnostics are digital. The polymerase chain reaction (PCR) is an artificial intelligence device to which we are all enslaved, which does just one thing: it manufactures genetic fragments that then frighten us. It makes the very thing it is looking for. Let’s say Suzy has two molecules of “Covid” in her snot swab. Pop it into the PCR and set a cycle threshold of 45 (which is common), she will end up with 35 trillion molecules in her sample at the end of the process.

Once said to be the “information superhighway,” digital is more accurately a tinderbox of terror. For whatever reason, it seems to spread bad news and bad vibes and antagonism faster than anything else. Fear is the one thing that people respond to when they don’t know how to respond to anything else.

But what is the “it”? Is it all these devices, networks, databases and content systems? Or is it the state of mind created by soaking in this environment? Both the environment and its effects are difficult to see unless you are truly paying attention and have special conceptual tools.

One of those tools is astrology. Astrology offers the ability to peer into what evades the senses and is invisible to normal waking consciousness.

Planets Moving Through Late Capricorn

Dec. 17, Saturn enters Aquarius. On Dec. 19, Jupiter enters Aquarius. Before then, the two largest planets will be clearing the last degrees of Capricorn together, something that has not happened since 1405 — and that event was not nearly as dramatic as the current one. (Those transits were separated by months; these are separated by two days.)

The especially edgy feeling we are living with now is the two most massive planets making their way out to the edge of the all-important sign Capricorn, about to form a conjunction. We are at the end of a 20-year cycle, perhaps the most important wave-pulse in all of astrology.

So it’s predictable and natural enough that there will be a frantic feeling, just ahead of so much happening. Capricorn is the sign that describes the structure of society and its institutions. It also describes our relationship to the past, which would seem to be crumbling. One thing we could use is some wisdom from history right now (for example, a memory of the 1976 and 2009 swine flu disasters, both of which were waged on humanity without a single case of the presumed illness in existence).

The 1976 swine flu “vaccine” caused a polio-like illness in so many people, it’s distribution was abruptly halted (read more in Discover magazine). At the last second,  CDC switched out the somewhat tested one for an entirely untested one called “X53A.” The 2009 Swine Flu “vaccine” caused neurological damage in the form of narcolepsy — the inability to stay awake.

Not one case of “swine flu” was prevented. There were none to begin with  in ’76, and no pandemic in ’09. I am skeptical of any actual cases. (Read this report retrieved from Forbes.) Treating an illness that does not exist is extremely dangerous. Though digital technology has a marvelous property of preserving things, digital consciousness is a memory hole. I have now officially fished out these issues. But next we shall visit the future.

VIDEO BELOW: A sample of Event 201, a novel coronavirus pandemic response drill set in early 2020, held in October 2019. It was sponsored by Bill Gates and Johns Hopkins Health Security Center. We agree, there is no explanation except that this is a total coincidence. From this video we may conclude that the plan for how to take care of the infirm was to censor the internet.

The Secret Meeting of Men Responsible for Global Affairs

The Jupiter-Saturn conjunction actually starts in the last degree of Capricorn on Dec. 17. It will be joined by the Moon on that day. The last degree of Capricorn has an interesting property, found in the Sabian symbols. While I use this method homeopathically, that is, very sparingly, some degrees stand out, and one of them is the last degree of Capricorn.

Sample of The Great Reset by Klaus Martin Schwab. He is a German engineer and economist best known as the founder and executive chairman of the World Economic Forum. Funny, in June 2020, the “pandemic” was getting better by the day.

Its symbol is, “A secret meeting of men responsible for executive decisions in world affairs.” This is not a conspiracy theory — it’s a bona fide conspiracy. These secret committees actually exist, and we live in a time when there is a global plan afoot. One of its engineers, Klaus Schwab, has written a book about it, called The Great Reset (see graphic). Here is a credible video presentation on the topic that focuses on Schwab.

My take is we’re likely to hear a lot more about that, as Jupiter and Saturn together, along with the Moon, might squeeze out additional information. Dane Rudhyar, the author of the Sabians that I use, offers a positive view of this degree. It’s about “the power to assume responsibility for crucial choices arrived at after mature discussion with those who share that power.”

Mature discussions about crucial choices! Wouldn’t that be nice.

What’s somewhat funny is that the prior degree, where much is also happening in the next few weeks, is “A woman reading tea leaves.” This translates to, “The ability to perceive the Signature of hidden meaning in every occurrence drawing one’s attention.” This reminds me of the European government’s warning that pattern recognition is a symptom of conspiracy theorizing! I wrote about this in October. Scroll down or search for the word “pattern” for a good laugh. Note, without pattern recognition, art is impossible. Engineering is impossible. All the natural sciences are impossible. Now it’s said to be a sign of mental illness.

Borrowing a bit from Elton John, don’t shoot me! I’m only the tea-leaf reader.

One last bit about Capricorn. I wrote previously that the “Covid” crisis would persist in the United States because the U.S. is in its Pluto return. This is really the deepest of the deep-Capricorn events, as it depicts the birth-chart of American society and of the modern notion of a “free country” that so many other societies have tried to emulate.

Then Comes Aquarius

During the third week of December, Jupiter and Saturn, along with Pallas Athene (the asteroid of politics) will all enter the energy field of Aquarius, forming a conjunction on the Winter Solstice. I am thinking this has to represent some radical shift in the direction of the world.

While Capricorn thrives on authority and taking things on authority, Aquarius is more science-minded. Science, the real thing — the scientific method. Aquarius can also go a little crazy on the peer pressure thing. But we get an interval of possibility while Jupiter and Saturn are in Aquarius together, which is a bit more than half of 2021.

The fixed star Altair, in person.

That may serve as a moment of clarity. We could use one of those. It may serve to make the internet seem a little more opaque, so we can actually see what it’s doing to us. You are more likely to have what you want, and are much more likely to accept what you want.

So being rational and considering the basis of fear is an option — though it’s only an option. It will remain possible to terrorize yourself and your neighbors. It will remain possible to turn the TV off, or watch the ticker go up. It remains possible to educate yourself, or to succumb to a propaganda campaign that the normally staunch and stuffy British Medical Journal (BMJ) described as such in a recent editorial:

“Science is being suppressed for political and financial gain. Covid-19 has unleashed state corruption on a grand scale, and it is harmful to public health. Politicians and industry are responsible for this opportunistic embezzlement. So too are scientists and health experts. The pandemic has revealed how the medical-political complex can be manipulated in an emergency — a time when it is even more important to safeguard science.”

That’s not the Aquarius we want, but it’s currently the one we have. Fortunately, much is about to change. How that goes is going to be a matter of involvement and attitude.

At the top, I mentioned the fixed star Altair.

I am no mavin on the fixed stars, though I respect them. Altair is one of the great stars, the brightest star in the constellation Aquila. Its position is 1 degree Aquarius and 47 minutes. The Sun is conjunct this star each year on Jan. 22. There are a diversity of implications, which span from the very negative to the very positive. So it will influence different people rather differently.

The Jupiter Saturn conjunction will align with this point by just over one degree. My take is, whatever Jupiter-Saturn is about, Altair will give us a lot more of it. We are about to experience a conjunction for the ages. It certainly feels that way.

With love,

Planet Waves Monthly Horoscope for December 2020 | By Eric Francis Coppolino


Aries (March 20-April 19) — For the past few years, Chiron in your sign has been pushing you to individuate. This is a phase where you emerge into your own psyche and the world as a distinct being who is unwilling to compromise your values due to pressure from others. The drive to do so is always there. Society seems designed to make sure that nobody gets to be too special (except for a few celebrities who don’t do too much of any real note). For you, this is not about being noticed. It’s about having oxygen to breathe, only available if you’re being truly and genuinely yourself. The way you know you’re doing that is you feel the resistance around you and the necessity within you. You will feel vulnerable, and wonder if you’re doing the right thing. More than anything, you will feel like you’re in unfamiliar situations where you have to think on your feet. As Jupiter and Saturn move into Aquarius, your involvement with community and various circles of friends is likely to shift, and increase radically. Notice the emphasis on Aquarius — the sign of groups, which also happens to occupy your 11th solar house of groups — on the heels of all these attempts to shape social society and drive people apart from one another. The universe is a large place, though you can only see what your filters allow you to see. Your filters are about to show you not just how complex and beautiful the social life of humanity is, but where you may have a new part in a new world that you get to help shape. This is very much about thinking globally and acting locally — and having a vision that exceeds yourself and your needs.

Taurus (April 19-May 20) — When it comes to the professional adventure, many are called, and few respond. Many who are in an interesting place neglect to see the potential in what they are doing now. Yet with Jupiter and Saturn moving into the career and reputation angle of your chart, one way or another, that is about to change. Your possibilities are far greater than you might imagine. Yet this is all about people, people, people. Taurus is one of the signs whose natives can have a tendency to pull back and isolate themselves, or to stick to a small and limited circle of contacts. Yet your world is rapidly growing larger. This began with the ingress of Uranus into your birth sign or rising sign back in the spring of 2018. Uranus is the kind of influence that will push you out of your shell, and bring new people into your life. It will push you to take some chances with yourself and your ideas about who you are. That was the first step. Now, the world is about to get larger. Or maybe smaller, in the sense that you have access to more people, and greater influence with them. We live in a time when leadership is among the few greatest needs we experience. For you, that means exploring social reality as it influences professional reality. The real action at conferences is in the lobby, not the lecture room, and that is the approach to take. Your own accomplishments, which also describe your fulfillment with the work that you do, will be directly related to who you choose to work with. Let your motto going forward be, “We are all in this together.”

Gemini (May 20-June 21) — Your God-concept is all about the intelligence of humanity. You do not need an authority figure. You do not need a savior. You do not need complicated rules, dogmas or theology. What you need is faith in people. That more than anything else brings you into contact with not just your God-concept but also your relationship with spirit. Yes, people are squirrely, and have weird habits, and are not all so friendly. They can become extremely mean when they are in groups. However, your faith must rise above past performance and exist on the level of a vision, of trust, and of embracing human potential. And what exactly is that? We all know that people can shape their own reality, if they take the opportunity to do so. We know that our intelligence has the power to solve any problem, if we choose to solve it. We know that we have the ability to take care of one another, and to grow. We can, if we want, design a society that serves the people rather than merely serving massive interests that tend to think of us as consumers or as slaves. Jupiter and Saturn ingressing Aquarius is not so much about you having a vision for the world, or solving the world’s problems. Rather, it’s about you embracing your own spiritual calling. This is about taking part in what people can do when they cooperate, communicate and share ideas. To put this simply, your source of faith is in people, which translates to you as “higher power” or divinity. Regardless of whether there is an old man in the sky, at this time, human potential is all we have. And that is quite enough.

Cancer (June 21-July 22) — For such a private person, you lead a very open life. This is, in part, through necessity: you are central to whatever concept of family you have, and that requires transparency. You may not feel too important or meaningful, though you are what I would describe as the focus of orientation for many. With Jupiter and Saturn changing signs this month, the environment of your relationships is about to take a step forward. This includes anyone with whom you have an agreement, commitment or investment of some kind. For you, Aquarius is the 8th house, and it’s all about your transactions with others — a most significant part of any person’s life. And this is what comes into focus for you now. Note the change in your human environment. Long stuck matters will give way and start to move. There will be shifts in your environment that redefine involvement and investment. You may have a lot more to work with than you have in the recent past, or the distant past for that matter. So much may open up that you will need to filter carefully who comes into your life. Learn to say yes, no and maybe. Maybe means you’re thinking about it and want to leave your options open. There are also relationships that will come to an end. Saturn has a clearing function, though there are unlikely to be any surprises: you learned all you need to know over the past 12 months. You have learned how to set goals, and how to make them happen. Mostly, you learned the difference between necessity and desire — and this knowledge will serve you well, if you use it wisely.

Leo (July 22-Aug. 23) — Whatever you’ve been through the past few years, I’m sure you don’t want to go through it again. And you will get your wish, as long as you live in the present, rather than lingering in the past — including the habits of the past. This is the great challenge that stands between all of us and happiness: the ability to let go of, and go beyond, some long challenge or struggle. Your world is about to take on new shapes and forms. You will soon meet people you never knew you were expecting. You will also need to confront certain limits that you will benefit greatly from accepting, as they will provide structure and give you a foothold where before you had none. If there is a lesson or message to all that you’ve been through, it is to have faith in yourself and your abilities. For it is your faith that carries you when your abilities seem to fail. It is your faith that sees possibilities that the eye cannot behold. No matter how much you are able to trust this lesson for yourself, there are some people who will be moved, and others who will not. The crucial thing is that you never let another person take away or diminish your faith in yourself. Because you are an affable and sensitive person, you may feel that it’s unfriendly or insensitive not to at least consider the point of view of another person. But I suggest you learn how to brush off both praise and blame. This is for the sake of being swayed by neither, and holding to your inner compass. There are compelling forces at work in the world, and in your world — but none so compelling as your conscience, and your love.

Tailored for Virgo Sun and rising, this new audio reading by Eric Francis introduces you to your astrology through the autumn of 2021. We will take maximum advantage of the power you are drawing from the Earth signs at the time of your solar return: Jupiter, Saturn and Pluto in Capricorn, as well as Uranus in Taurus. This is a grand earth trine, and the thing to do is gather momentum in the direction you want to go, and then point yourself there. Eric describes the influence of Jupiter and Saturn ingressing Aquarius later this year. The reading looks closely at Chiron in Aries, accompanied by Mars retrograde in Aries — your most important relationship house. Now with full transcript. Order now for instant access. This reading is included with the Backstage Pass.


Virgo (Aug. 23-Sep. 22) — Make certain that what you’re mixed up in is truly yours. It might be; it might not be. Something needs to be verified, without prejudice. That means held to a truth standard that also factors in for your own potential bias. More hinges on this than you may believe. The matter, in one word, is trust. Once the trust of a child has been injured, it’s easy for repeated injuries to happen, and for you to defeat your own reasoning and judgment. Fear can slip in, which would manifest as some notion that you’re going to avoid future pain in some way by withdrawing, withholding love, or refusing to offer your blessing. Take solace that the truth exists irrespective of your judgments. You can, therefore, strive for understanding and realization in spite of them, in spite of your fears, and despite anything that may have occurred in the past. Two developments this month can guide you to a place of greater awareness. One is that you’ve reached a release point about your early history. Eclipses involving the sign Sagittarius will serve to shift the context of the past, so that you may see it for what it is, and remember your deeper origins and true nature. Borrowing a bit from modern literature, one underlying theme of Harry Potter is that his family did not understand him. Second, the true power of your mind is coming into focus. You are a kind of scientist, in the form of an inventor. Inventors may be excellent researchers and historians. Then you go an extra few orders of magnitude into seeing something that does not exist yet, and bringing it into manifestation. This includes your cognitive abilities, and the beauty of your mind.

Libra (Sep. 22-Oct. 23) — Let’s consider the notion of risk. It’s about to become one of the central guiding forces of your life. And it’s also something that the world is fixated on, in a way that rivals the utterly astonishing mania over baseball at the turn of the last century. Due to the movement of Jupiter and Saturn, many good things are poised to come into your life: people, opportunities, ideas, experiences, and responsibilities. Yet the thing that activates any potential available to you is the willingness to take a chance, which means the willingness to fail, to sustain some loss or injury, and the possibility to do some harm. Those are not the outcomes you want, though they are possibilities that you need to be honest about if you want to aspire to the greater challenges and rewards of this life. Fortunately, you’re unlikely to do things that could result in blowing up a city block. Most of the supposed danger is to your own belief structure, and your sense of your potential. Many experience shock and even dismay when they observe what they are capable of, and quickly retreat. We’ve all had this happen at least once: you do what you thought was “impossible,” and then the notion disappears for a moment. In order to experience the benefits, rewards and potential that you are your earned karma and your birth right, you will need to take the risk of changing your mind. The risk of embracing the possibility that you are far greater than you ever imagined. This is not about ego, or arrogance, or superiority. Rather, I am describing your humble origins as a child of the universe who has arrived on Earth to do your work. You came here with a mission. You came here to learn. The rest is up to you.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 22) — If financial progress has been bogged down lately, you need to take leadership. Yet that will largely involve guiding things in a direction supported by a much wider landscape around you, to which you are now tuning in. One will generally not build an igloo in the tropics or live in a tent in Antarctica. Also do your part to ensure that your financial plans are not driven by fear. You need a less destructive, more creative source of motivation. Your actual ideas about money connect to the notion of cosmic abundance. They relate to your spiritual resources, and your sense of connection to all that is larger than yourself. When you’re financially on your game, you’re tapping into something, rather than making something happen. Now is the time to tap in. Work with the concept of growth, and the related concept of service. Said another way, your financial plans need a purpose, which must be one and the same as your purpose. That, in summary, would be the thing to invest your energy into considering. Now, addressing those who struggle to find their purpose, that is, to know for sure whether they’re thinking along the correct lines: you’re getting there if it makes you nervous. You’re approaching the territory if you think you might fail, or if you think something is above your abilities, or if you feel undeserving. All of these things are invitations. They are summoning you to your destiny, even though you might get some other message. We live in a world where many think their job is to be small and not threaten anyone. That is not your destiny.

The most exuberant astrology reading ever.
Astrology Studio for Sagittarius, 2020-2021

Dear Friend and Sagittarius Sun, Moon, or Rising:

Without Sagittarius, we would all be lost. Home of the two centers of our local universe (the Galactic Core and the Great Attractor), Sagittarius is the homing signal in the zodiac. It reminds us of our cosmic origins, and this is a role you serve in the lives of many.

Your astrologer, writing in the Greek diner — again.

Sagittarius season is particularly exciting this year, with two eclipses involving your sign, including the Dec. 14 eclipse conjunct a planet named for the Goddess of the Stars.

Here is a sample of your Sagittarius reading — Live from the Galactic Center


Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 22) — You may think you’re coming unhinged or undone. You may think you’re slipping. If so, stick with the feeling. It’s true: something is shaking loose. This is not about the future, it’s about right now. However, let’s consider the past for a moment. What you are working with, addressing or confronted by right now has an element of the past to it. The word for this is legacy. This is what enters your life not just from your own experience but that of others as well. Often it will masquerade as your own stuff, your own fault, or your own problem, when really it is the property of someone else. It’s easy to be fooled into thinking that it’s your problem, and at that point, it is. Yet the solution is not to fix things. The solution is to understand what happened, and then to consciously sort out what belongs to you and what belongs to others. Often this takes little more than the calm recognition of what is so, for example, the idea, “That is my mother’s fear. It’s not my fear.” Or, “My father felt guilty about that; it’s his problem.” Work with this equation and see if you can gain some clarity. You do not need to push or force the issue right now. There is considerable momentum guiding your progress; to me that is a sign that your spirit is ready to move, and to move on from what has held you down. This could take any form: the past manifests in strange ways. The forward-facing present begins with a moment of clarity.

Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 20) — If you are wondering when the madness is going to let up, the answer is, when you want it to. You do not need to be caught in the drama of the world, or the lives of others; that is a choice, though it’s one that calls for discipline. Most of the necessary boundaries have been demolished, and you need to establish new ones. One thing that will help is if you vent some of the internal pressure you’ve been living with as a silent counterpart to the outer dynamics of your life. There is a reason things get to you, which is a buildup of some internal vapor that must be let off, potentially having built up for years. In a sense this is the result of fermentation, and whatever you had brewing is now ready. The next phase of your learning could be reduced to one idea: learning how to stay in alignment with yourself, by which I mean what is true for you regardless of what anyone else thinks. It’s in your makeup to be subject to pressure from others to get in line with some acceptable idea. The struggle you face is, are you strong enough within yourself to stand up to that? This is the essence of your journey of becoming. Where it manifests is right on that line between, “This is what we think” and, “This is what I think.” That crucial boundary is about to take on new clarity. If you feel resistance to accepting what is yours, remember that it’s not about ideas, or theories, or material objects: it’s about you embracing your reality as an autonomous person. And the beauty of that is, once you do so, you will be able to relate to others from a place of true strength.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) — The shape of your life is about to change. The patterns of your mind are poised to transform into something else, something they have never been. In a sense, you will become someone else, from the inside out. It’s not merely patterns but rather the way that you create and then follow them. You are at your best when this becomes a wholly conscious process. It might originate with something you observe; it might commence when you notice something inside yourself that you either want to change, or want to emulate and develop. Later this month, Jupiter and Saturn enter your birth sign or rising sign, close to simultaneously. This has never happened, in living history or furthermore: in the history of the modern world. I just searched again, and the most recent conjunction of Jupiter and Saturn in your sign was in 1405, when you were very, very young. This will affect all of us; Aquarius has vital resonances with the shape of society itself, and of our collective social reality. The theme of your sign is where the individual meets the collective. It is also about this thing that has emerged in the centuries since the last conjunction in your sign, called individuation. When we consider the evolution of consciousness, this ability to be oneself, to think for oneself, and to relate to others as yourself — and nobody else — may be the number one priority. There are factors acting in society that would crush us all back into primordial ooze, or worse, some form of technological existence with human awareness all but blotted out. We all stand on the cusp of great change, when things will go one way, or the other. You decide for yourself first, and foremost.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20) — You are an intensely private person, despite what you’ve been through the past few years (which has been anything but private). You’re about to get some relief from that, in the form of a vast, new inner realm opening up to your own awareness, and becoming the most dependable factor in your life. This is going against the grain of nearly all of society, where the supposed rewards are dangled in front of those willing to be like everyone else, and have no inner life — and to participate in forcing everyone to do the same. This is not your thing. You are way too laid back. You are sufficiently connected to the mysteries of life and death to understand that there is nothing to be afraid of. Yet more than that, you are a person with an interior orientation. Your awareness of the world originates within you, not outside of you, and you are about to receive the supreme gift for someone with this orientation. That said, you also participate in the world, and may find yourself doing so in the coming few years more than you ever have. These inner and outer qualities are not at odds, as long as you remember which comes first. If you feel disoriented, or dispirited, turn your awareness inward and seek your truth there. Meanwhile, the coming few weeks are likely to come with some quickly moving developments in your professional life, perhaps the most significant since the 1990s. Look at the world in such a way that everything is an opportunity, and that everything and everyone is offering you an idea. Remember you are blessed with a gift that much of the world would be envious of: awareness of your purpose. Let your commitment take you where it will.
