“Love casteth out all fear.” 1 John 4:18

           On New Year’s Eve 2019 China announced the Coronavirus. The Moon and Neptune were both in Pisces. The Moon is the traditional planetary ruler of Cancer while Neptune is the esoteric ruler. Cancer, Neptune and Pisces are all associated with fear, while the Moon and Virgo – the sign the Moon is esoterically associated with – are the sign and planet of health. This entanglement at a time when six other planets were in the sign of long-term karma and initiation may have added to the response – en masse – of fear. Cancer rules the masses. Neptune and Cancer rule viruses as well as confusion about diagnosis. Viruses are a result of fear. Thus, begins a self-perpetuating cycle, perhaps something we as a species must endure in order to alleviate karma and undergo initiation. From mid-February to mid-March we were also in the month/season of Pisces as both knowledge and fear spread. It would seem we were primed for a pandemic.

          The opposite of fear is courage and love. Leo and its planetary ruler the Sun are the rulers of both. In esoteric astrology the Sun represents the personality. Every one of your “Sun Signs” has the ability to express courage in different ways. From mid-March to mid-April we are in the season of Aries, the warrior who can courageously battle fear. While we are in this season we have an extra boost, no matter our personality Sign, to face the fears with courage, to exhibit a willingness to battle that which turns us into lemmings running over the cliffside and instead, to carefully ponder and mindfully enter into practices that can erase both disease and fear. Loving our neighbor as ourselves can also help. THAT is the way of the Spiritual Warrior.

 

Everyone: No retrogrades and a good number of challenges allows us each to determine our most positive way of fighting fear. The “Pink” Supermoon on April 7 helps.
