So if the message is ‘see the world with new eyes’, remember that everything has slowed down (this Mercury retrograde has been hard on everyone!). You don’t have to complete things now.  Let them grow at their own pace.  So stop and smell the lilacs and roses!  And see what it is that you really want in your life.


The biggest event of this new Moon is the Jupiter-Chiron-Neptune conjunction at 27 Aquarius. This triple conjunction starts a new cycle of global healing and regeneration – if we work on it - and these three energies will stay close together for the coming year, enhancing our ability to give birth to something new.  From May 16th to the 20th, the Sun and retrograde Mercury in Taurus square these three celestial bodies, triggering any resistance we have to the new Aquarian vision of universal peace, equality and consciousness being offered to us.  Look in the news for indications of both the challenges and the new vision.  And if you feel like an alien, even a legal alien, don’t worry – it’s a by-product of all that Aquarian energy.


 (Check at the end of this newsletter for a special offer on a mini checkup about how this affects you.)


Chiron is an asteroid orbiting between Saturn and Uranus.  It symbolizes a bridge between our ‘reality’ and other realities.  Chiron was the leader of the centaurs, the horse-men, and he was the teacher of great heroes.  While he was immortal, he was wounded by a poisoned arrow and suffered horribly.  Although he was redeemed in the end, his suffering is what makes him the wounded healer.  Although he was already a wise teacher, his suffering (suffer means ‘to bear’) brought him greater wisdom.  Chiron represents that wisdom we get from looking for meaning in the suffering in our lives. 


Jupiter, the king of the gods, raised Chiron from his suffering to be the constellation Centaurus, so that humankind could literally look up to him and be reminded of his mythic life for inspiration.  So we see that Jupiter values Chiron’s wisdom.  Since Jupiter is concerned with expansion, meaning and new perspectives as well as with our social awareness, we have a collective opportunity to really look at our culture and understand what causes the suffering our capitalist economy has created.


This conjunction brings to the fore how we need to raise our collective awareness of alternative healing methods.  Perhaps these methods will be acknowledged and even included in any universal health care system we implement in the US. Perhaps each of us will start to use them in our own lives, and stop using a health system that is not only broken, but potentially dangerous to our health.  (The negative side of this energy is the backlash about the mother who refused to let her son undergo chemotherapy, relying on alternative therapies instead.)


Jupiter and Neptune are both concerned with spirituality and hope, although the b-side of that is delusion and mass psychosis (or the swine pandemic?)  Idealism or disappointment are probable now, with most of us hoping for real and sustained change in how the world works and the powers-that-be wanting to maintain the status quo.  If we want our ideals to manifest, WE HAVE TO DO IT.  That means writing our senators and representatives, changing our habits, voting with our wallets, envisioning and then implementing a new life-style.  The energies are available to us, but they don’t promise us more than that they are available.  We have to use our minds (Gemini) to make clear decisions about how we think about ourselves and our lives here on Earth at this moment in history.


For the most part, these three energies open us to healing ourselves, seeing how we fit into the scheme of things (Gemini categories again), and opening a space for each of us to contribute our wisdom to the world.  This is a time of grace.  Just accept what comes to you as part of your destiny.  Dream and be inspired, but have no expectations about the results.

Cathy Pagano is the author of a new book, "Wisdom's Daughters: How Women Can Change the World". Cathy trained at the C. G. Jung Institut-Zurich in dream interpretation, then got her M.A. in Counseling Psychology in Feminine Spirituality, and along the way became a certified Life Coach. As an astrologer and storyteller, she weaves the Cosmic Stories written in the stars and from The Bard's Grove, comments on emerging archetypal themes in movies. Cathy works with the tools of the imagination - dreams, alchemy, myths, astrology, symbolic language, storytelling, ritual - to awaken the Soul's wisdom.

I believe that Americans are called to a higher consciousness at this point in our history. We are called on to live up to our ideals and create the country our forefathers imagined. Inner consciousness needs to be acted upon for social justice.

Cathy believes that our writers and artists must take up our responsibility to create art that inspires, teaches and heals our humanity.

Cathy writes about political, psychological/spiritual, and cultural issues.
