"History Doesn't Repeat Itself, but It Often Rhymes" - Mark Twain (attributed)
“What is Past, Is Prologue - Marcel Proust”
I hope this finds you in a peaceful and serene place within yourself and your life, even in the face of what has happened since yesterday morning, and what might still unfold from now until the middle of March. We are living in perilous times, and it’s still vitally important not to get too knocked around by global events. Given the events of the past few years, that may sound like a tall order.
Like Mr. Clemens said, history doesn’t repeat itself, but it often rhymes. We astrologers see that all the time, so it does make sense most of the time. However, this may be just one shoe dropping for now. We have a New Moon in Pisces next Wednesday, followed by the almost precisely conjunct line-up of Mars, Venus, Pluto, and Vesta at 27 degrees of Capricorn on March 3rd. Jupiter in Pisces will be joined by the Sun on the 5th of March, while Venus and Mars will continue to travel forward in lockstep until they reach the Anaretic degrees (29) of Capricorn on the same day. Then on March 6th Mars and Venus arrive at Zero Degrees of Aquarius, which also reactivates that same degree in Aquarius the Saturn-Jupiter conjunction that transpired on December 21st, 2020. In a few short months, the whole drama around the vaxxed versus the unvaxxed began to unfold, so it will be very interesting to see how we act or react to the energies of the next 9-10 days.
Some astrologers also include the Centaurs (asteroids and minor planets) in the prognostications, and a few others include fixed stars. While I find those aspects both interesting and formidable, they don’t make of a dent in most people’s awareness about astrology. That doesn’t mean they’re not important though. It’s just easier to say that there are multiples of aspects with their own energy signatures flying around all over the place.
Even so, I personally cannot allow even astrology to get in the way of my awareness that real people get hurt or worse in wars. There’s been a huge amount of loss since way back in January 2020, when the Saturn-Pluto conjunction at 22 Capricorn christened the new decade with a gift no one in their right mind would want. Here’s where Mr. Twain’s quote fits in.
When I created the chart yesterday for the moment that Russian tanks crossed the Crimean frontier and entered Ukraine, it was immediately obvious that Venus and Mars were smack on the same degree in the same sign as Pluto and Saturn were just a bit over two years ago, on January 12th, 2020. There are no coincidences, only the appearance of coincidence. As I mentioned in my previous newsletter (Return to Sender – Feb 11th 2022), about how those in power utilize the metaphysical sciences to further their own aims? Well, this invasion may be another example of that in action. Or Putin acted from an subconscious urge? Either way, the die is cast, and we will see what unfolds as the days roll by.
I’ve included the relevant charts to the current and future timeframes, which I’ve already covered above in brief. I truly hope you can stay in your center, support your friends and family, and be supported in return. Maintaining quality connections with other people will be as important as tuning within oneself for guidance, understanding and peace.
When the going gets tough, I find myself in a place of deliberation about whether it is better to just breathe through adversity and wait for solutions, or instead to act and do something that may or may not contribute to actual change that has tangibility. Most spiritual traditions, especially Eastern ones, advocate a sort of spiritual version of “laisse’ faire,” or non-interference.
Of course, the mind would like to vacillate between these two polarities, it functions on a dualistic principle. Left-brain versus right brain, et al. However, what we may need to consider are the consequences of inaction, especially when we could be the difference, and even if it only positively affects one person. The concepts I am laying out here for your consideration may become ever more important in the months to come, so perhaps this is a good conversation to have with your spirit and heart.
Began to watch a film last night about a story from Japan, involving mercury poisoning of the water around a fishing village. If you’re interested, it is called “Minamata”. The crux of the film’s ethos revolves around getting involved in fomenting a positive change and ending a destructive process. Sometimes, our soul’s conscience simply won’t allow the suffering of others to go unnoticed, and we are compelled to act on behalf of those who cannot help themselves.
This is the nitty-gritty stuff of Life itself. The mother bear protecting her cubs from a predator, a man rescuing a woman from being mugged or raped, or one man standing up against a mega-corporation whose actions are causing illness or death. What about standing up against tyranny in any form? Is this a useless act from a spiritual perspective? Yesterday Bill Gates praised Australia’s lockdown methods as the way forward to deal with the next pandemic. I hardly think you will find most Australians agreeing with Uncle Bill. They endured the most dystopian of times on the flimsiest evidence. Do a little digging if you want to be aware of what’s happening down there…or don’t.
At the end of the day each one of us answers to our own conscience about our mistakes, whether of omission or commission. I have no opinion about that, and ideally self-examination is a very personal affair. In the words of Albert Einstein, “In the end, the world will not be destroyed by those who do evil, but by those who watch them without doing anything.” This from the man who also declared “I want to know the Mind of God, everything else are just details.”
Regarding all these upcoming whacky alignments, if you are hankering for something more in depth, please consider tuning in to my upcoming radio broadcast this Sunday. Details can be found just below, before the relevant charts.
I am taking a bit of time off next week, and there won’t be a State of the Planet update. Catch you the following week. May all be well with you between now and the Ides of March.
Blessings on your journey,

On the next episode of "Revealing the Mysteries" which
airs this coming Sunday, February 27th, 2022
Show Synopsis: What do you want more than anything? Freedom, health, happiness, peace? Do those desires seem to be ever more elusive than ever these days? There are very good reasons for this, and even though it is reflected in the astrology of our times, it goes much deeper. There is a 4-way traffic jam coming March 2nd involving a New Moon in Pisces, the conjunctions of Pluto, Venus, Mars, Venus, Jupiter, Neptune and our Sun. It will last, ironically, until the Ides of March. Et tu Brute’! So, the focus in this episode will be about our immediate environment on this planet, and how our consciousness is being manipulated and controlled in a strategic and invisible way that deepens the fog in our awareness or can even make us think we’re “woke” …when that too might be an illusion. We are living in an invisible web, and we should not try to fight it or fix it. We can only reverse it by deliberately returning to Nature and our sensory embodiment. Ironic indeed…to seem to go backward will propel us forward.
Showtime is 5:30pm GMT, 12:30pm EDT, and 9:30am PDT.
