Covid-19: An astrological and energetic perspective


Looking at the energy around the global Covid-19 situation is like standing in front of a giant washing machine packed with all sorts of clothes, created from all sorts of materials, from smooth pink chiffon to rough grey fleece, spinning at full speed and trying to decipher what’s in there. There’s so much going on, with so many consequences, potentials and hidden hands. The rapid rate at which things are unfolding is head-spinning – which is crazy to write seeing as usually we’re asking “Why is this shift taking so long?!!”

Society as we know it has been disrupted, paused, postponed, cancelled. Not just in one city or in a far-off country. This is happening everywhere, to everyone. We are ALL riding this wave together now. Not just energetically anymore. Physically.

Life right now is like that scene in Willy Wonka where Mike Teavee gets broken up into a million tiny pieces as he gets teleported through the air and then re-emerges inside a television set. Our reality right now is like those million tiny pieces floating about, only there are billions of pieces.

Nope there was no flash of light to indicate that this is “the shift”. Yet shifting we are, and shift we will. In our bodies, with our bodies. It’s no exaggeration to say that our old world and old reality is rapidly disappearing. There is a new world and new reality on the other side of this that we will re-emerge into. In the meantime we are in the transition zone.

The transition part of any process feels scary because it is the void, the great unknown. It’s the phase where demolition is happening but you don’t yet fully know what the rebuild will look like. On one level this process has been happening for a long time with millions of people, and even entire countries at times, experiencing various stages of “exiting the old”, “entering the new”, and “transitioning in between.” Now though the time has finally come where THE WHOLE WORLD is experiencing the shift collectively. Each person in their own way.

We have known for a long time that something was coming. Something that would stop the world, reset us, and shift our course. This time was prophesised by the ancients, only no-one knew what would happen or when. Yes we have had ‘pandemics’ before, or other major world events like WWII, but not with the following conditions:

  • 7 billion people on the planet, (there were 1.8 billion in 1918, the time of the Spanish flu)

  • The majority of those 7 billion are now either on full or partial lockdown, self-isolating or social distancing. The social, emotional, spiritual and economic effects of this is beyond comprehension.

  • Up to 200,000 flights globally are usually in the air on any given day transporting millions of people only to have that suddenly come to a near standstill with borders closing and travel bans in place

  • 60% of the global population has internet access and is using it to connect like never before

Social, emotional, spiritual, economic effects

“It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness, it was the epoch of belief, it was the epoch of incredulity, it was the season of light, it was the season of darkness, it was the spring of hope, it was the winter of despair.” - Charles Dickens, A Tale of Two Cities
