It's like a religion. Even Oprah had to apologize for speaking out against it.

Oprah had more at stake to have to have apologised for speaking against steak. I have nothing at stake here to speak against that steak. In fact, in her capacity, I would have more respect for her to stake her claim to animal and environment protection.

They would have burned her at the stake, figuratively speaking. Or more likely, barbecued her.

And she chose to let the animals land for the kill on the grill. Not the best way of claim to fame. She could have done better, I am sure, since she is Oprah and the public would have got over it. Some might have even been positively influenced.

It is what we use our power and our success as a weapon for, what we advocate for and our presentation skills. Needless to say, you can never please everybody, but in this kind of a cause, if one is able to appeal to the conscience of even 5% of the people and invoke kindness and humanity in them, it is far better than being the darling of 10 times that public. Just my opinion of course.

British scientists just announced that a much anticipated home-test for the virus is too inaccurate to be considered reliable.

Re: What are you learning from COVID?

Because the thread is about Covid19, and not astrology, I won't put my link here, but it gives us specific dates through Vedic Astrology as to when we may be more at risk from this Virus this year and perhaps next year?



Where should I put it?

I have a note in to her this evening asking her IF she did a (sort of double blind study) (j/k) ....of dates such as WW2 etc she mentioned.
(see Graph of dates)


I think its correct about the restrictions were starting to become well known,as we needed to start to stay in and isolate around that date in some parts of the world i.e.Feb. 25th,(one date mentioned on the graph as the Yoga had started and going into late May) although the WH was still denying it then I'll let you all know if I hear anymore from her about this question because there are dates going into 2021 and some months this winter I'm concerned about. The idea being, this particular yoga (all the planets Vedic uses i.e. 7) must be within the bounds of the Nodes to be eligible as the graph shows.



It (the fate the Nodes depict), seem to suggest a kind of lack of movement or a greater restrictive force during those periods.



I doubt however, that she'll have anymore to say because she seems to have said it all in the article posted, regarding AIDS, WW2 era, and the other major events that restricted or "bound" our free movement.

Re: What are you learning from COVID?

I am learning how useless everything, that seemed so important or at least part of my routine, is. I am surviving well without having to go to a mall every second weekend, catch the latest box-office hit so I have something to talk about during lunch time blabbers with colleagues.

How staying away physically from friends and family is actually showing your care and love for them.

I know what you mean. It shows true love and care. Also things we do that do t have real meaning now we realise why do those things. Itís so peaceful outside. I can just hear the birds singing.

Being in the present is so good. Not thinking about the past as whatís the point, not thinking about the future as we donít know what it will be like so canít plan building work etc so only thinking about the present and it feels good. 😇😊

Re: What are you learning from COVID?

I managed my occasional hypertension, high blood cholesterol and slightly overweight issues in my 20s and 30s, now I'm 40 as of Feb 15th and I focus on improving my own health once more to reduce the risk on contracting covid19 along with following CDC guidelines in hygeine, physical distancing and cleaning my home.

2020 is the internet age, we had 20-25 years of video chat and conferencing, and we'll use it a lot this Passover and Easter until the pandemic finally passes.

Re: What are you learning from COVID?

Do you know what I learned? How stupid people actually are. They just eat whatever is on social media – buying into all the nonsense and creating mass hysteria.

Thanks a lot, Jupiter, for making this relatively manageable Saturn-Pluto conjunction utterly destructive.

You know masks don't help. They create a false sense of security. Do you know social isolation is the last thing you want to implement in a pandemic? It's epidemiology 101.

All these restrictions and limitations, not to mention completely stupid, but for some old people. OLD PEOPLE. People in their 70s! People who are going to live what, maybe another 2-3 years at most??? So what if the virus kills them. They are just as likely to die from the actual flu, or a heart attack or respiratory distress.

We do not sacrifice the young to the old. That is just backwards nonsense. I hate old people. They created a garbage world. This postmodern shithole. Climate change and pollution. Wars. A pathetic education system. And now, they want me to put my life on hold?

Our destruction of the economy has put the world back in more ways than you can imagine. We lost 2 trillion dollars! So much productivity and progress GONE. Never to be seen again. Because of some virus...

The aftermath will be mental chaos. Suicide and mental illness will skyrocket when our already atomized and fragmented society becomes even more so.

Meanwhile, Capricorn elites are rushing to grab more power and money while people willingly give up their freedoms. No anger. No rebellion. No nothing. Just a blind acceptance.

Remember the regulations after 9/11? Were those ever reversed? Nope. We just keep piling on more controls and limitations.

All these idiots who prefer security over their freedom. What is life if you aren't free? You're already dead. DEAD. You ******* zombie.

What happens when a real problem arises? Say climate change for example? Overpopulation? Rampant mental illness?

We will go into a dictatorship and when it happens, it will happen so easily and effortlessly. People will gladly trade their lives away. We are so ready to be slaves to the big man. All hail the great monarch. Regulus comes before us to give direct opposition to the Aquarian age.

Another Dark Ages awaits to envelop the world. Time to put on my night vision glasses. Better study up on my faith and other ocCULT beliefs. The very first dynasty has been implemented. The pharaohs in the 1% will solidify their positions and the ghostly middle class will settle. Individualism will be replaced with malignant-atomized-lonely-narcissism and synthetic-technologically-interconnected-Aquarian-collectivism. Welcome back feudalism.

Hopefully, I die before the rebirth of the new world is fully implemented.

Just kidding, I'm talking out of my ***. But seriously, the world is pretty bad and I think it's only going to get worse due to the ridiculous hysteria of the masses, and the atrocious irresponsibly and evil of the authorities and medical establishment.

Exclamation Re: What are you learning from COVID?

Bill Gates just may be the villain behind the Covid-19 pandemic. He's the force behind the worldwide implementation of 5G, which coincides with the worldwide epidemic. He's the "vaccine-enthusiast" on a worldwide basis, hypodermic needle in hand, forcing vaccinations on "underdeveloped" countries. When some children died from the vaccinations, he wrote it off as unfortunate but necessary collateral damage in the fight against disease.

He's got a Jupiter/Pluto conjunction in Leo, and a Venus/Saturn conjunction in Scorpio, his Sun-sign. Moon in Aries conjunct his M.C., opposite Mars in Libra. Looks harmless enough, with that nice Ascendant.

Many opted out of the first use of 5G in the power companies' "smart meters", for health reasons. Then, there were dire warnings about the widespread effects of 5G on the human nervous system, which is looking like a prophecy come true. Will Gates profit from a Covid-19 vaccine, and write off its casualties as unfortunate but necessary collateral damage?

Btw, Gates is currently known as the wealthiest person in the world. It's no secret that he's determined to develop new vaccines and force them on people worldwide. For "humanitarian" reasons only, of course.

Re: What are you learning from COVID?

As HKK says, being in the present is good and thinking about the past and future is of little or no use.

Also agree with CapAquaPis that this time is forcing us to naturally (without duress due to med reasons) work on ourselves in terms of rest, sleep, as well as our homes.

I also somehow really like this calm outside due to less to no folks outside. Almost no traffic, more birds chirping as a result, even the sky seems more clear and blue (less pollution and believe me NY is no joke when it comes to that), less noise pollution outside too. So soothing to just see nature thrive and birds chirp in freedom.

I think the corporate, financial and other business institutional elitist power has always existed in this world. Pluto, though, since Jan 2008 in Capricorn, has just brought this out and to the surface ruthlessly beginning with the global economic recession.
2020 Saturn joined Pluto in the war and we have a pandemic further crippling the capitalistic corporate world.

The message has been (but we did not learn 2008) and again is loud and clear.

Sinclair's uninformed opinion which dismisses the role of 5G in creating this new pandemic is "complete cr*p".

The interviewer himself is "surprised" that so many "highly intelligent" people are blaming 5G. The straw man argument being regularly used against this view is that 5G somehow "created" the virus itself, NOT the correct interpretation, which is, that it's weakening our immune systems, and that we're now more at risk from ALL types of illness.

If a straw man argument is all they've got, it just ADDS credence to the anti-5G analysis.

I'm especially interested in Jupiter/P!uto conjunct, now that I see that the richest person in the world is also the man most responsible for, and profiting the most from the worldwide deployment of 5G, and has this conjunction in his Natal-chart (in Leo).

Passiflora, what does "crystalline difficulty" mean to you?

Bill Gates. He also has Venus/Saturn conjunct in Scorpio, inconjunct his Scorpio Sun.

Bezos, though, I mean, the lockdown is possible only because of AWS plumbing and Amazon content and it is wiping out Amazonís competition. He also has Venus-Saturn conjunct in Aqua.
For Gates, it appears that his obsession with vaccinating all the children in the world with various vaccines (now, presumably including a Covid-19 vaccine when it becomes available), is more of a crusade than a profit-making venture. Warren Buffett is involved as well.

I seriously hope Trump will learn some humility (a word completely unknown to him) during Covid though I know that is wishful thinking on my part.
How much of his own personal gold has he donated?
I highly admire Dorsey as opposed to the likes of Jeff bezos and mark sucker-berg ()
