Why a Crises Now — February 23-March 2 2022


Pluto tuned direct motion in on the 7th of October, although remaining stationary for days and in the same degree of Capricorn for November, moving forward as Saturn and Neptune also turned direct leaving Uranus to resume direct motion in mid- January. This indicates a shift in awareness of universal focus — as Covid-19 subsides, the drum beat of war resumes. Russia’s military under Putin, a likely move by him to unite his country and put the domestic problems to rest as he pursues his expansionist dreams. The game of war has high stakes when practiced in real time, and threatening human life. Pluto looks in two directions, to the future and to the past. Uranus is iconoclastic and can work to the benefit of the adversaries as well as the benevolent powers.  It can be a destructive force or an enlightening force.  Putin draws attention to himself as the long-standing ruler of his nation. Biden is being tested at every move. War-like Mars in Capricorn reaches the conjunction aspect with Pluto on March 2-3, although peace-loving Venus remains in a conjunction with Mars as a modifying force.  If Putin does invade Ukraine, sanctions (covert violence) will be applied.
