Popular understanding of the world situation is, at the moment, so elementary that I don’t think that most people are even able to formulate questions. I would suggest two: what just happened, and what is happening? Of course, if you ask, you might get answers.
Dear Friend and Reader:The Sun arrives in Pisces on Friday, Feb. 18th. The last sign of the twelve, Pisces is where forms dissolve and where certainty evaporates. It’s also the sign of creativity and appreciating ephemeral and ethereal beauty — the kind that’s difficult to describe and easy to mar.
Pisces has a vastness to it, though you must float through its qualities, or at most, tread lightly. In our times, we’re already living amidst many uncertainties and without much ground to stand on, and this is not a comfortable space for most people to be in.
The one thing that we humans usually depend on is each another, yet today many report having no friends and more are feeling abandoned by their families.
In many parts of the world, the social fabric has been tattered, and trust in one another is badly damaged. Yet social distancing was a quality of the digital world long before “covid.” Remember all those public service ads encouraging people not to stare into their devices at the dinner table?
Distance is the essence of digital, and many people have as a result confined themselves to their private spaces for decades.
Popular understanding of the world situation is, at the moment, so elementary that I don’t think that most people are even able to formulate questions. I would suggest two: what just happened, and what is happening? Of course, if you ask, you might get the answer.
Many highly intelligent people are simply not interested, don’t want to know, and are not raising questions. The lies seem to present a more stable “reality” than the truth. Yet what is often called a conspiracy theory is something that is factually consistent rather than speculative. It is the cohesion that is the threat.
As chaos mounts day by day, people are increasingly overwhelmed. One quality of Pisces is that (in the spirit of the ocean) it is the sign of what is incomprehensibly vast.
Truth Movements are Thriving Right Now
For others, their curiosity is awakening, and the falsehoods provide no sense of reassurance as they do for others. Despite all the deception, truth and anti-mandate movements that began two years ago are thriving and growing.
Yet this is not reassuring for those who live with the sensation of drowning in chaos, frustration and numbness from trying to cut off. From what? Well, from anything that makes them feel. The liquor industry, a Pisces thing, is doing well these days. (During the lockdown, liquor stores were considered an “essential businesses,” but Urgent Care and out-patient surgery were not.)
As chaos mounts day by day, people are increasingly overwhelmed. One quality of Pisces is that (in the spirit of the ocean) it is the sign of what is incomprehensibly vast. (This is one reason Pisces people tend to love large hotels and are made uneasy by prisons.) This confusing and chaotic quality surrounding matters too big to grasp describes our current world crisis.
Pisces also describes the internet, which used to be a thing apart and is now the total, enveloping environment of life, social reality, entertainment, economics, medicine and politics. Yet the internet itself is entirely disembodied. It has no ground to stand on. We have all had that weird feeling of “wow what happened to everything?” when the internet goes down or when a disk drive fails.
To be driven “out of body” by digital technology means to lose contact with the basic sensory facts on the physical plane of existence.
The All-Encompassing Psychedelic Trip
Pisces is the sign of mind-altering substances. Hallucinogenic drugs would qualify. Media philosopher Marshall McLuhan (1911-1980) described computers as, “LSD for the businessman.” Early researchers recognized that in addition to its potential healing and therapeutic properties, LSD induced what psychiatrists at the time called temporary psychosis — that is, detachment from ordinary reality (true enough description).
I am re-watching the AMC television series Mad Men these days, a rather Pisces manifestation in total. In an episode early in season 7 (The Monolith), the advertising agency buys a mainframe computer, and puts it in the artists’ workroom, scattering the creative department and signaling future developments in society.
One of the more sensitive ad writers, a young guy named Ginsberg, is driven into a full-on psychotic break by the constant humming of the massive machine, and his perception of the torrential data flow through its circuits. He responds by cutting out part of his body and giving it to his boss as a gift.
That is all of us right now, to some degree. We are trying to stay cool and calm in the midst of a flow of infinite data, and living every moment in a bath of ever-increasing microwave signals (which are loaded with even more data). This is so intense, most people tend to cut themselves off. To be driven “out of body” by digital technology means to lose contact with the basic sensory facts on the physical plane of existence.
Even yoga teacher trainers who can hold tree position for the whole afternoon become electronic phantoms the moment they enter a Zoom meeting.
If you want to know why you can terrify people so easily, that’s what happens in an out-of-body, ungrounded state of being. There is no reference to fall back on. Ram Dass once said that when taking acid, you should never get so high that you don’t remember your zip code. Well, on the internet, nobody has one; they are everywhere at once.
Fantasy is also a quality of Pisces, which can be about creative envisioning of what is possible, or about escapism, deception, or denial.
Pisces, the Numinous
Pisces also offers a numinous quality. It’s most worldly references — art, music, sexuality, nature and ephemeral beauty — all remind us of the possibility that there is something beyond the world we know, or the reality we think of as final. This is the “transporting” sense of many Pisces experiences. Like the 12th house, it can represent a parallel or alternate reality.
Fantasy is also a quality of Pisces, which can be about creative envisioning of what is possible, or about escapism, deception, or denial.
If we are looking for the most human qualities, such as sympathy and compassion, Pisces is the go-to sign. Yet these seem to be in short supply in our moment, supplanted by mandatory fear and every-man-for-himself survivalist impulses. What is interesting about the use of fear in our era is that it has a narcotic quality, and people seek it like a drug. When there is the chance it may get cut off, you will see some people respond with outrage.
We have all witnessed those who become upset when others do not believe what they believe, whether or not they have tested either viewpoint for truth, meaning factual validity. The guiding rule for many seems to be: whatever terrorizes me is true, and must be true for you as well.
Consciousness is being stoked constantly by the Pisces illusion of the electronic media. We are living through an astral plane manifestation. You can tell by one easy-to-check fact: the highly polarized quality of the astral consciousness, which has led the world to split into separate alternate realities.
This split throws people into crisis, particularly those who cannot stretch themselves across the contradiction in their minds long enough to figure out what is really going on. To do anything Pisces, it’s necessary to stand in the face of the unknown — and stay there, without jumping to a false conclusion, pretense or contrivance.
The vast and conductive energy field of Pisces is amplifying the easily-corrupted influence of Neptune. Anything projected through an illusion of some kind is greatly magnified, though often invisibly — fear and delusion included.
Neptune in Pisces
The influence of Neptune in Pisces (2011-2026) is rarely counted as a driving force of world events. You are much more likely to read about Pluto in Capricorn, the U.S. Pluto return, or Saturn in Aquarius. Yet Neptune may be the factor most descriptive of our state of collective consciousness right now.
Pluto is often said to act as an invisible, unconscious or subconscious agent, though Neptune’s ability to vanish, and make things vanish, is impressive. There have been times (more than one) that I stared at a chart looking for it, unable to see the familiar trident glyph — but it was right there. (Once I was reading for a client on the phone outside, and when it started raining the first drop landed on Neptune. Water seeks its own level.)
The vast and conductive energy field of Pisces is amplifying the easily-corrupted influence of Neptune. Anything projected through an illusion of some kind is greatly magnified, though often invisibly — fear and delusion included. All of what we’ve witnessed the past two years has at its root deception, manipulation, and induced collective hallucination: what psychiatrists are now calling a mass formation.
This has been attained by broadcasting nonstop fear and terror through various media holograms. The observant, even the half-awake, may notice this. Those who are paying attention and in touch with their senses may be angry or even outraged, though this is difficult to actually feel or express under the influence of Neptune.
There’s one other indicator that Neptune and therefore astral reality is a factor: a sense of isolation, which may manifest as loneliness, feeling misunderstood, or outright rejection. There are approaches to handling these things, though the most important thing to do is recognize what you’re feeling, even as it may elude you.
This combination of factors is a little like the Mr. Jackpots scene in Twin Peaks, where all the slot machines in a casino hit at once. Something is up. Something big.
March 2nd – 6th: Immediate Events in Capricorn, Aquarius and Pisces
The next few weeks represent a series of critical turning points, I think the most significant since January 2020. Three signs are involved: Capricorn, Aquarius and Pisces. Study astrology for a while and you will see some unusual patterns pop up. Stick around and some of them will stand out over the decades, and what we are now approaching is one such event. Let’s start with Capricorn.
We are currently experiencing an exact-to-the-degree (called partile) Venus-Mars conjunction traveling through Capricorn in the direction of Pluto.
Mars has joined Venus (still slow and powerful) on its plutonic journey associated with the recent retrograde: Venus has already made two conjunctions to Pluto, first on Dec. 11th and again on Dec. 25th.
Those dates may be relevant to whatever you experience the next few weeks. There is a point of closure and transition associated with the Venus retrograde.
For the third act, both Mars and Vesta will be present for the last Venus conjunction to Pluto. Using Venus conjunct Pluto as time center, the main event is March 3th, though the really impressive chart is the March 2nd Pisces New Moon.
Conjunctions represent cycles turning over.
This chart shows four different partile conjunctions happening simultaneously: Moon conjunct Sun (the New Moon in Pisces), Mercury conjunct Saturn (in Aquarius), a rare event, Jupiter conjunct Nessus (in Pisces), and a completely unique event, the quadruple conjunction of Venus, Mars, Vesta and Pluto (in Capricorn). In the following few days, two others happen: Sun conjunct Nessus (in Pisces), then Sun conjunct Jupiter (in Pisces).
In Aquarius, Mercury and Saturn form a conjunction hours ahead of the March 2nd New Moon. Mercury in Aquarius says “know when you don’t know.” Mercury conjunct Saturn in Aquarius says “you will find out when you don’t know; your assumptions will be challenged.” We have been doing a lot of trusting the experts.
Finally, Venus and Mars complete their conjunction on March 6th in the first degree of Aquarius — right where the Jupiter-Saturn conjunction happened in late 2020.
This combination of factors is a little like the Mr. Jackpots scene in Twin Peaks, where all the slot machines in a casino hit at once. Something is up. Something big. Due to the quad conjunction involving Pluto, this directly involves the United States Pluto return, which will be exact for the first time on Feb. 20th.
Nessus represents consequences, usually of destructive actions. It has a hazy morality, but ultimately the buck stops there.
The Ocean Refuses No River
Of the events I’ve described above, the Jupiter-Neptune conjunction in Pisces is the one that is potentially the most influential. But prior to that is an event I’ve been tracking for a long time, and that is showing results now: Jupiter conjunct the centaur Nessus, which is exact once on March 2nd.
Nessus represents consequences, usually of destructive actions. It has a hazy morality, but ultimately the buck stops there. Nessus represents the boomerang coming back to where started. It is all about the return of karma to its source.
We are in an extraordinary moment of consequences right now. The covid truth movement is thriving on new disclosures from scientists, people in the financial sector, political analysts and psychological observers.
Many people are figuring out what has been done to us. The Canadian trucking convoy has forced the hand of Justin Trudeau, and he is making some very bad choices, including invoking emergency powers and seizing the bank accounts of his citizens.
Within the real scientific community — not just drug companies and government officials, but actual doctors and virologists — the debate is raging over whether SARS-CoV-2 exists, and over whether viruses exist — a discussion that goes back to the days of Louis Pasteur’s debate with Antoine Béchamp in the late 19th century: germ theory versus terrain theory. Do germs cause anything? The debate has never been settled, in actual scientific terms. While this discussion has not broken into the legacy media, it is everywhere else — and is astonishing to see.*
Jupiter is magnifying the consequences of Nessus. It is bringing out much deep information (I will have a summary on Friday’s Planet Waves FM.)
We will see these revelations build to a crescendo the next two weeks; it will have some momentum, and there will be more revelations through March. Some of these issues are too big for the legacy media to ignore. After two years of watching this from backstage, I can tell you there is a heck of a lot more that is going to come out. You may have no idea what a fraud orgy this has been. The designers of this disaster have tried to fool all of the people all of the time — and have not succeeded.
The current environmental quality of Jupiter-Nessus, and of events in Capricorn, gives way to Jupiter conjunct Neptune on April 12th. That is a potentially glorious moment of renewal and inspiration, and we need that dearly right now. What is missing from the wider world is all sense of hope, potential and the love of freedom. Where these things are alive and well is inside the Covid Truth and Anti-Mandate movements. More on that another time.
The astrology of the next few weeks is calling on you to do more than stand back and observe. You are being called to participate, and to consider your deepest truth. There is one question we need to be asking: What is the appropriate role of fear?
Or perhaps: Can you handle the truth?
* So far as I can tell from two years of intensive research into covid and the history of viruses and vaccines (which for me actually dates to the 1990s, when I was investigating AIDS and HIV), there is a real question as to whether viruses actually exist. When you look closely at the issues, viruses seem like 12th house phantoms, with the rules changing every few months or less. The only evidence of their existence is by inference — genetic fragments and nonspecific antibodies. There is no direct test for a virus, or for an infection, nor tangible proof that viruses specifically cause the diseases they are said to cause. You may not have heard of this, but it’s a highly evolved discussion. Don’t bring it up at dinner; you will get sent to your room.
For the past two months or so, the issue has gone off like a bomb inside the entire covid truth community. Many top scientists and doctors who assert that covid is overblown, that the test is not valid and that the injection is not a vaccine, still claim that there is a virus — though their arguments are being easily torn down by those taking the other view.
The much larger problem here is that if viruses are removed from the medical equation, then everything presumed to be caused by them suddenly has to be rethought. The ground falls out of nearly all we think we know about medicine, and that’s a big abyss since viruses are blamed for just about everything (and we think vaccines will solve our problems when usually, kimchi will serve well).
The virus issue came up in the early 1970s during the multibillion dollar “war on cancer” (led by Richard Nixon), which was really the quest to find the cancer virus. That utterly failed. The virus industry was on the brink of collapse when it was “saved” by HIV, which became a trillion dollar industry. The history of HIV and the history of covid trace one another closely.
