"We are at the beginning of something new that will mean a long process both individually and collectively. Astrological knowledge recognizes in the pandemic the concrete form that energies have taken as an expression of a process already anticipated by cosmic information, and which speaks about our evolutionary process. It is the human psyche that projects itself to the outside, in this case to the cosmos and its mythical dimension, so that it can recognize itself. It is here that the already announced collapse of our structures and
way of life takes place.
At the time of this novilunio we are experiencing the powerful impact of the conjunction of Mars, its regent planet, with Jupiter and Pluto. As in every beginning of cycle a seed, an intention, a will is set in motion. The energy of these planets is cathartic and explosive, it corresponds to a moment of intensity, of collapse and transformation of great structures and systems because these conjunctions are occurring in the sign of Capricorn. When in 2008 Pluto entered the sign of Capricorn the economic crisis occurred, and those of us who study this language knew that it would be the preamble to a greater process that would take place later when Saturn would make a conjunction with Pluto in Capricorn and Jupiter would join them as an amplifier of that same process. Although the conjunctions from Saturn to Pluto occur every 33 years, the last time this conjunction occurred in the sign that governs the great political, social and economic structures – Capricorn – was in 1518, marking the end of the Middle Ages, in which as we know, a pandemic, the Black Death, also played a decisive role, and we inaugurated the modern age, the renaissance, individualism and the accumulation of wealth and slave trade, the basis of the capitalist system. This is the empirical basis of the astrological knowledge that observes the celestial movements and traces their correspondences with events on earth. As above, so below. So after 500 years we are again in the midst of a significant process of the collapse of an old order and the emergence of new values on which it will be necessary to rebuild."
