For those of you who have been trying to contact me while I have been in Egypt, Mercury retrograde is now over (at last), and I have an updated website address: www.pachaterra.net
As of this writing (March 19), it is Spring Equinox and International Astrology Day, and I have just returned from Egypt. Unexpectedly, the trip was cut short due to the global spread of the coronavirus. Originally, my group was to meet at the paws of the Sphinx for Spring Equinox, however, the Universe had other plans. It is important to remember that Astrology directs us to use potent cosmic windows to recreate our reality. I was blessed to spend a few days in Luxor in quiet meditation with the blue lotus, under the tutelage of my greatest spiritual Teacher, the Egyptian Lion-Goddess Sekmet. She is the Mother of the Blue Lotus, as well as the shamanic healing Goddess who protects against all plagues and disease. She was my constant Companion. One of her messages is that “Courage comes in many forms.”
We are now at an important point in the Great Wheel of the Year as we move into Spring Equinox (the equal balance of Light AND Dark). In addition, Saturn, our major karmic teacher, moves into the sign of Aquarius (March 21) for the first time in thirty years. This is certainly a wake up call! We already see how humanity is learning the lesson of fear vs. cooperation the hard way, and this is only the beginning. Saturn teaches through “tough love”. This is NOT the time for caving into fear, hoarding or scapegoating others. Only by realizing that we are all united global/cosmic citizens and by working as TEAM NEW EARTH can we solve the challenges coming down the pike. Aquarius makes no distinction between rich or poor, young or old, nationality and race; we are all in this together. While I was in Egypt, I saw people pull together in amazing ways; no hoarding or mass panic. Everyone pulled together to help neighbors and tourists alike. Although no country will be exempt from this crisis, certain places will suffer less. There is a lesson to be learned here about living a kinder, more compassionate way of life in the future.

NEW MOON IN ARIES MARCH 24, 2020
This New Moon is a crucial turning point, as it is the first New Moon following Spring Equinox and the BIG Saturn shift. Spring is normally about new growth; new beginnings; new life. At the time of this writing, the full extent of coronavirus is still an unknown threat, and the steady diet of fear, death and lack that is being broadcast 24/7 by the media is the polar opposite extreme. However, as we have seen before on planet Earth, major forces of nature will take their course. No amount of panic will help; however, swift and decisive action delivered with the steely determination of Mars, Jupiter and Pluto in Capricorn (right now) can set a successful plan of action into motion and do much in the way of damage control.
Major changes and major cleansings are imminent; changes that push us out of our comfort zones and into areas that will test the courage of our convictions. One thing is certain…nothing will be the same in our lives again. However, like Lot’s wife, there is no turning back. We have to confront our fears head on; blazing trails, discovering new potentials and making leaps of faith. This is not the time to play victim sitting on the sidelines waiting for someone else to “fix” or “save” us. The “fixers” are usually the “fear-mongers”. Think for yourself and take “grounded” action. Acting solely from fear does not bode well for success. History has a way of repeating itself, if we are not paying attention! The rise of fascism and totalitarianism are the signature of past Saturn /Pluto conjunctions. In our enlightened 21st Century, conquering our collective fears is a necessity. We cannot make that great leap into the New Age of Aquarius unless we have faith in our power to create a better world through cooperation and harmony. “Compassion is the radicalism of our time”. (Dalai Lama)
During this New Moon, as mentioned earlier, we have three major planets (Jupiter, Pluto and Mars) in the VERY capable sign of Capricorn. On the personal level, as well as the global level, it is crucial that we think objectively and not overreact emotionally to stress. It is a time for ALL world leaders (as well as individuals) to remain grounded and centered in the midst of an avalanche of external pressures. Questions regarding the abuse of force and power will come up. As global destabilization progresses, once solid institutions may take drastic measures to keep the status quo. Temporary restrictive measures may become the norm with the heavy Capricorn influence, but this is not necessarily a “bad” thing. New rules may be necessary. It is important for individuals to remember that only fear can render you powerless.
Dark Moon Conjunct Chiron in Aries: This is a very interesting and unusual configuration of asteroids (not planets). Something very deep is bubbling up from the collective unconscious to be healed. The shadow of violence and aggression; slave/master must end. Witch hunts and concentration camps have no place on the New Earth. Ideally, women will rise above past abuses and become leaders and champions in their own right.
Aries is the cardinal fire sign, the first sign of the zodiac. On the personality level, it is where we begin to “individuate” and stretch our egos. If your Sun sign is Aries, this is your personal New Moon. Begin a new project, make plans for the future; have an adventure, but take some positive action. Where the sign of Aries falls in your birth chart will tell which area (s) of life you are willing to take a risk, and/or where you are feeling restless and want to make changes. The trick with Aries is to implement change without being reckless, impatient or scattered.
