The past few weeks have been torture for many people.
Last week a student described it thus:
And I'm extremely sad.
I would add "anxious and frustrated" to the mix.
And "lost all interest in the thing I used to love."
The mood was so bad in fact that one needed to keep away from other people, so as not to infect them.
But it's about to end.
Apparently a partial lunar eclipse on June 23 threw everything out of whack. Or... perhaps it was when the planets lined up on June 13. Anyway, it has been a difficult few weeks.
Bill Street, who runs the Astrology for the Soul web site has this to say about the meaning and effect of the 2010 planetary alignment and total solar eclipse:
“Given historical precedence and the archetypal dynamics involved, The Saturn, Pluto, and Uranus T-Square of 2010 should coincide with a period of socio-political upheaval and destabilization, if not crisis. This alignment is arguably one of the most important astrological signatures of the first half of this century, certainly of the first three decades.
This T-Square symbolically represents a turning point in which economic, cultural, and political difficulties of the last decades come to a head and demand resolution.
Things are supposed to improve sometime tomorrow.
But I think the mood started to lift tonight.
And not just because I took not one but two classes with the Guru today.
(He says the next three or four years will be difficult - and then things will become harmonious).
