With Uranus in Taurus facing off against Saturn while it finishes its current foray into Aquarius, social unrest has become a reality for many of us. While I won’t get into the specific reasons for the unrest or my feelings about it, I am interested in talking about what we can do to help each other during this time. Nothing is easy for anyone right now. Whether you’re on the front lines of the protests or staying at home trying to stay healthy or anything in between, this is for you.
Aquarius has a certain duality that is the key here. Aquarius rules both collective humanity and individuality. And that is the order in which you address problems like these. Add in Taurus’s basic comforts, and you have a blueprint for keeping each other sane.
First, when you or someone around you is in distress, address basic human needs. Is the area safe? Can they be taken somewhere safer? Are there medical concerns?
Second, use Taurus to make them comfortable on a basic level. Do they have water? Food? Can you help them become grounded? Help the person identify five things they can see, four they can touch, three they can hear, two they can smell, and one they can taste.
Finally, tap into Aquarius’s individuality. Remind them that they are doing what they believe is right, whatever the circumstance. Identify any specific needs like mental health concerns or personal belongings that may bring comfort.
And above all, remember. Just like Aquarius is both the collective and the individual, so are we. We are all connected and make up a powerful, cohesive whole. We are also individuals with necessary and distinct needs, talents, and gifts. And when we being those gifts together to take care of each other, we fulfill our highest purpose.
How are you coping? How do you care for your fellow humans?
