This week before our first Eclipse of 2021 and while Mercury begins to slow down for its retrograde, the Sun enters Gemini and Saturn retrogrades in Aquarius. We are entering a time of change and review. This week's podcast will tell you what this means and give the rest of the week's planetary energy forecast. Knowing this helps us plan our time wisely and understand what we are experiencing in our lives and in the world.
With Jupiter now in Pisces, I started seeing more beautiful but bogus astrology posts on Facebook and felt the desire to speak up about the Faux Astrology News that has proliferated over the past decade. So many people have become interested in Astrology, and keen to become Astrologers themselves, that they've been tempted to skip the actual learning process and go on social media with their astrological posts.
They usually don't have accurate timing information and the forecast is inevitably a bit 'off' and skewed toward nebulous spiritual energy. Most readers aren't trained in this art/science and won't notice, enjoying the flowery images conveyed, but not getting information that could be helpful.
Here's a photo I think says it all. Sad though it is for those who know we find the truth in the sky, we may need to be more discriminating in where we get our information about astrology.
Art: Butterfly Bowl by Catrina Welz Stein and the pink bubble photo is, of course, Glenda, the good witch from MGM's 1939, Wizard of OZ.
