In 2020 we have not one but two conjunctions that mark the turn of a generation, and of an era in history. On Jan. 12, Saturn and Pluto in Capricorn form their once per 33-year conjunction. Then on Dec. 21. 2020, Jupiter and Saturn, both now in Aquarius, form a conjunction in the first degree of that sign. Read more…
This edition of Planet Waves FM begins with a discussion of basic facts surrounding the coronavirus pandemic and resulting effects, including how we got here, the preparedness crisis, what we don’t know, and how we are navigating a near-worst-case scenario. What lessons do we have to learn, and are we learning them? And will we remember?
The second segment focuses the astrology, including the Aries New Moon, Saturn in Aquarius, and a continued discussion of this shock early in the Age of Aquarius. The third looks at some of the scientific facts behind how this virus may have spread, referencing the interview with Dr. Ward Stone and other sources. I end the segment with a discussion of the bat as an animal totem, with the help of Ted Andrews.
This is an interview with Dr. Ward B. Stone, who for more than 40 years served as New York State’s wildlife pathologist. Dr. Stone ran one of the world’s only wildlife pathology units, and is an internationally-renowned expert on virus transmission from animals to humans, including West Nile virus, rabies, and other pathogens. He’s also the discoverer of PCB contamination in the United States, which is how I know him. He’s one of my most trusted sources and a hero of the global environmental movement. I reached him at home on the evening of March 18, 2020.
He believes that our current outbreak of novel coronavirus in fact came from transmission from bats to humans, and says that in his opinion there is a less than 1% chance that the virus came out of a lab, and said that transmission from an animal to a human the most likely path that this virus took. The interview is presented unedited, and is about 45 minutes long.
Tonight I look at the social and political expressions of what is happening now. Then, in the second segment, I examine the astrology from several perspectives, including the immediate aspects and Jupiter conjunct Pluto. I consider the implications for the “Age of Aquarius,” a topic I am also developing in writing.
I begin this week’s edition of Planet Waves FM with an outline of the current astrology. That includes Monday’s Virgo Full Moon and Mercury stationing direct on the same night.
I then move on to a discussion of how holistic care requires exploring and learning about entirely new territory of health and wellness. And right now, it’s just about all we’ve got.
