What do the stars say about the pandemic and when it will be over?
Dear friends, in one form or another, COVID-19 will continue for some time to come. This is especially so while planetary transits move through Pisces, the sign that rules the immune system, the masses, and global exposure. Mercury, a transmitter influence, continues its tour of Pisces to April 10. Mercury is also the ruler of Gemini, the sign that rules the lungs and respiratory system.
The peak is happening right now. I consider the recent super full moon in Virgo (March 9) as the launch of the full-scale outbreak. We’ll be in the thick of it until the next super full moon, which arrives on April 10 (in Libra). Having said that, can we flatten the curve? Yes, we can.
Border closures, government measures, and businesses shutting down all fall under the rulership of Capricorn. Self-isolation, a measure that came into wider adoption while Mercury toured Aquarius earlier in the month, will begin to show its benefit soon enough.
The spring equinox happens on Thursday (8:50 p.m. PDT). The sun’s entrance into Aries is immediately followed by a domino of action transits: Mars in Capricorn conjunct Jupiter on Friday; Saturn into Aquarius on Saturday; Mars conjunct Pluto in Capricorn on Sunday; and a new moon in (Mars-ruled) Aries on Tuesday. In combination, these transits can prove to be chain-breaker influences. (Either that or they’ll produce a next hard hit!)
While the prospects are good for an upswing of progress, know that Saturn in Aquarius, a cementing influence, now provides an introduction to the shape of things to come—that of a radically altered world reality. This is a test run. COVID-19 is but one threat to our existence. Stringent climate-change action is absolutely essential.
March 20 - April 20
You’ll gain an energy boost from Mars in action with Jupiter on Friday and Pluto on Sunday. Mars is also on a two-year wrap-up and starting the next two-year build-it-better agenda. The equinox (Thursday), the new moon in Aries (next Tuesday), and Saturn in Aquarius (starting Saturday) put better timing on your side for reconnecting and seeing or making improvement.
April 20 - May 21

Whether you have something actual to pin it on or it is an evolving consciousness, Mars/Jupiter and Mars/Pluto place you at the end of a two-year growth cycle and at the start of a new reality base line.
