Check it out: Absolution from a BDSM-attired priest during a drive-up confessional amidst social quarantine.
So, study the elements:
• Absolution (Jupiter)
• Hoodwinked priest. (Jupiter conjunct Pluto, I have this same conjunction so I know this one well).
• Via an automobile that’s static (Mars conjunct Saturn)
• Amidst a social pandemic (Saturn in Aquarius).
All of these components are actively buzzing through the atmosphere right now and taking on myriad modes of expression. Like this one. Always astrology is the symbolic wed to the literal, there is no separation.
As I tell my students:
The best way to learn astrology is to dig deep into the birth charts (if you have trustworthy data) of public figures: artists, politicians, criminals, celebrities, etc. as all of the seemingly disparate components that comprise a horoscope are put into high detail when people wrangle attention on life’s stage.
The same goes for current affairs and of-the-moment events that are captured at a particular time on film, video, etc.
Photographs are the best to work with because you have a moment that’s frozen in time, which is also the same phenomenon at play at your birth. A frozen sliver of time turned into a birth chart.
As soon as you’re out of your mother’s womb world you’re on your own, baby — plopped out into the throbbing pulse of the Earth’s (your new mom’s) biosphere.
I learned this from Grant Lewi, one of my favorite astrologers of all time. I’m working on a fascinating article about Grant that I’ll post soon. Grant put the mod in modern astrology. And I fell in love with him when I was a wee lad.
