The end of Saturn in Virgo: Chronotherapists

Thanks to Deborah at Wall Street Weather for this excellent article on Time which included a link to another article predicting something called Chronotherapy as “the Next Big Thing” in health care. Chronotherapy is healing that takes into consideration the circadian rhythms that make up the daily flow of our physical system.

This may seem like a fringe movement, but the Johns Hopkins website suggests that chronotherapy can be used to optimize the taking of medications for optimum results. Chronotherapy is being used to time chemotherapy treatments in cancer patients and for hypertension.

Saturn will be turning retrograde this month (meaning it will appear to move backwards from our perspective here on earth) and then it will travel back into Virgo in early April. Saturn represents the principle of waking up to the reality of whatever sign it passes through, and in Virgo, the sign of health and life in a body among other things, it has been forcing us to face the difficult realities of the health care system.

While Saturn has passed through Virgo all kinds of revelations have come out regarding the way we look at matters of health. From pharmaceuticals in the water, to food rationing in America and starvation in the developing world, to a nearly public acknowledgement of the dangers in plastics and beauty products, and of course the huge debate in America on revamping the insurance system – all of these bear the hallmarks of Saturn’s forcing the issue so that it can be handled with focus and pragmatism.

Saturn is the Roman version of the Greek god Kronos, and Kronos was the god of Time, an aspect of Saturn as well. Some sources say that it was Chronos and not Kronos that was […]

Mercury Turns Retrograde Today

Mercury will shift direction today, beginning its four times a year journey backwards as we revisit areas in our life that require additional attention.
Because Mercury turns our attention to the past and in a more interior direction, often we experience communication problems which is largely due to a lack of focus or attentiveness.  Things can be more confusing, equipment failures can occur (sometimes due to a simple lack of following directions), email and phone systems frequently break down.
If you must sign a contract during this period go ahead and do it, but use extra caution when making agreements and be sure they are in writing if possible.  The inattention of these periods can result in misunderstandings and confusion in negotiations.  And then expect to have to renegotiate at some point in the future.
When we know that Mercury is retrograde these frustrations become less aggravating, because we expect them and understand that they can occur.  These periods (this one lasts until January 15) are wonderful for going back and revisiting unresolved issues from the past, redecorating your home, redoing your website, revisiting your life plan – it’s commonly said that anything with a “re-” prefix is a good idea when Mercury is retrograde.
What you don’t want to do is become paralyzed with fear and afraid to take any action during this period.  Life your life as it comes, but you’ll be prepared and have the resources you need to work through any problem.

Mars Retro Travel Delays Combine with Mercury Retro Power & Communication Problems


Following up on my article the other day about travel delays corresponding to the retrograde turn of Mars, planet of action and movement, Mercury is now preparing to change direction on Saturday.  When Mercury turns retrograde (planets obviously do not ever move backwards, but occasionally from our perspective on Earth they appear to do so) there are often more incidents of equipment and machinery breakdown as well as communication problems.
Travel difficulties continued yesterday as a big storm in the Mideast knocked out power and caused more delays, and Julie in Boston commented that the public transit system experienced a derailment and weak tunnel wall that caused extensive delays there.  A bridge failure in Florida stranded 800 people yesterday for three hours waiting for a drawbridge to open.
There have also been train accidents, including two that occurred in the Triangle region of North Carolina where I live and one in Ohio, and several in Europe as the result of icy conditions.  .
And now the power and communication problems begin.  An electrical problem outside of New York City forced Amtrak to halt all trains coming in and out of Penn Station between Washington and Boston.  And Blackberry users experienced email outages twice in one week.
Fortunately, the Mars retro effect is diminishing and we should be seeing travel problems ease.  Communication problems, however, are with us for another few weeks.  When we know that Mercury is retrograde we can laugh at communication problems and phone and email failures because we know that Mercury is at work being its old trickster self.  As Julie in Boston wrote in the comments, Mercury has a sense of humor even if Mars doesn’t.

Religion, Science & the Solstice

I really like that compares the spiritual observation of the Winter Solstice with the observations of science:

Religion and science occupy separate and opposed spheres, no? Not to our distant forebears, from whom all of our illumination festivals derive. They could not afford the facile dichotomy between the sacred […]

Mars Retrograde Brings Traffic Problems

Mars is the planet that rules action, so it stands to reason that it’s retrograde turn on the 20th would bring transportation problems, and so it did as several parts of the world faced challenging winter conditions:
Four passenger trains broke down in the Channel Tunnel (Chunnel) between France and Britain on Saturday as Mars stood still preparing to change direction, stranding more than 2,000 passengers for hours.
Meanwhile on Monday thousands in the UK were trapped in their cars overnight with more than 20,000 breakdowns noted by the end of the night as the result of a record breaking snowstorm.
It looks like the weather is the likely culprit and not Mars, but it sure is a coincidence!
