“…for there is nothing heavier than compassion. Not even one’s own pain weighs so heavy as the pain one feels with someone, for someone, a pain intensified by the imagination and prolonged by a hundred echoes.”
Milan Kundera, The Unbearable Lightness of Being
Venus moves into Pisces today, offering a glimmer of hope that some form of compassion can be found that will open the doors to a broader universal perspective. The Moon’s arrival in Virgo this morning trines Uranus, giving strength to independent individual voices. There are strong temptations to acquiesce to powerful, controlling forces in order to gain or establish security. Even though the universe whispers to us to let go, security and safety are overwhelmingly strong imperatives that may keep us tethered and enslaved.
THE WEEK AHEAD: Corrupt, controlling, fear-based manipulation of fear and insecurity begins to face powerful, inescapable challenges initiated under this week’s Saturn-Pluto conjunction in Capricorn. The wisdom of Capricorn is hidden within the spiritual seed of Truth that endures through the limitations and harsh demands of the spiritual concept of Winter. Capricorn’s concern with recognition, approval, power, and control are, in essence, expressions of a fear-based concern over safety and security. But the spiritual lessons of Capricorn teach us to focus on personal integrity, honesty, pragmatism, and conservation of resources. When we operate through fear and insecurity (often associated with negative traits of Saturn, ruling Capricorn) we only seek recognition and approval for accomplishments as dictated by societal expectations. However, when we only seek recognition based on societal dictates, we may find ourselves abandoning our personal power and integrity, losing control of ourselves as we seek power and control over others. When we only seek external recognition and control over others, we may quickly fall prey to the dictates of authoritarian powers who establish the rules, demands, and limitations that we accept — often without question. We lose any ability to maintain sovereign control of ourselves and our connection to Universal Divine Power and Truth. The last time that Saturn and Pluto were conjunct in Capricorn, was all the way back in 1518. Perhaps most notable was that the conjunction occurred less than two months after Martin Luther posted his ‘Ninety-five Theses,’ the beginning of the Reformation of Christianity. His purpose was to challenge the corrupt practice of selling indulgences by the Catholic Church, suggesting that “forgiveness was God’s alone to grant.” In our current era, we face a myriad of ways in which our personal fears and insecurities are manipulated and controlled by powerful governmental, societal, and corporate interests. This week’s conjunction marks the end of the beginning of the process that will put extreme pressure on corrupt authoritarian structures in preparation for the illuminating, liberating transits of Jupiter (12/19/2020), Saturn (3/21/2020) and finally Pluto (3/23/2023) through Aquarius.
