I’ve been watching people closely and analysing the energies awakened by the current New Moon; the insights offered by this Lunar Month are remarkable.
Interestingly, over the last few days I have perceived extreme and widespread contraction, mixed with unnerving idealism, impatience and vision. The general public is now paying more attention to social issues more than ever. People have been approaching me and raising large-scale political, financial and ideological issues. These are localised manifestations of the early stages of this powerful Aquarian month (read my previous post for more about the New Moon).
Astrologer André Barbault, one of the greatest in mundane research, wrote at length about the so-called ‘Planetary Index’. The extremely idealistic, and possibly utopian energies of this very month are quite indicative of a tight concentration of planets within a relatively narrow area of the zodiac. The current planetary configuration occupies only 113 degrees out of 360! If we consider also the North Node as a generally sensitive and meaningful point in mundane astrology, that index only rises up to 143 degrees. I’m not surprised to see and feel a seemingly insurmountable disparity between ideological projections and physical manifestations at this particular point in history. As Mars and the inner planets move on, things may begin to tangibly shift. However, the big picture suggests that no significant global boom is foreseeable before 2026.
In other words, the 2020 impasse continues to stay with us, due to its enormous inertia, partially symbolised under the guise of a low Planetary Index.
The degree of social contraction we are now just beginning to widely question is not easy to erase. However, it is at times of major conjunctions that we envision the future.
2021/22 will constitute an extended phase of social battles and ideological reformations aimed at dismantling the latest global contraction.
The Saturn-Uranus square will be with us for months, so the level of social unrest, humanitarian awakening and freedom fighting so far witnessed are the beginning of a profound transformation for humanity at large.
