What does the coronavirus look like from an astrological perspective?
I tie the coronavirus to the triple conjunction of Jupiter, Saturn and Pluto in Capricorn. There is a lot (Jupiter) of fear (Capricorn / Saturn) that many people will die (Pluto), worldwide (Jupiter). While it’s possible this could happen, most fears do not manifest in reality.
Fear is good for business. Very good! Companies shamelessly manipulate people into buying things. We all know this is true.
There is also a lot of money to be made when there are big moves in the stock market. The direction, up or down, doesn’t matter.
I may sound jaded to some but here’s what I noticed: this story was really pushed beginning on Sunday, to impact the markets on Monday. Monday morning, Costco, Walmart, Sam’s Club, etc. already had their panic stuff ready to go. Gallons of bleach, various wipes, vinegar, whatever. These items were available, in your face, as soon as you walked in the door.
Sorry, but I worked for Frito-Lay for years. I knew to order a lot of Doritos for Superbowl and the order was made in advance. It’s simply not possible for these stores to be pre-stocked and have the goods displayed without advance notice. They know a fuse will be lit so everything is in place so they can maximize sales.
I don’t know about you, but I hate being manipulated like this. Period.
Back to the astrology, yes this conjunction describes a worldwide pandemic. But it also describes an opportunity to make mega bucks by scaring people to death. I don’t know about the former but I am definitely seeing the latter in play.
What are you doing in response to the coronavirus threat?
