It’s been over a year, and I still think everyone gets too alarmist about certain giant rocks in the sky making certain angles with other rocks. Like our last Gemini full moon, with the mutable grand cross. Seriously, when I see a moon like that, I say it’s a good day to go out and check out some really wacky/violent human behaviour.

Original Title: 2006 Scorpio stellium and astro alarmism
Original Post Date: October 16, 2006 @ 1:05pm

Lately, I have been reading posts and such like by people fanning the flames of our upcoming Scorpio stellium. Yes, half our planets are going to be in the sign of cheery things like death, obsession and vengeance. Yes, intense is probably an understatement. But I’ve been noticing some people out there are starting to go a bit chicken little, talking about how this stellium will light up their charts and screw them over. Two words of advice:

dont-panic

If we think of this Scorpio stellium as something akin to a natural weather event, we can adopt a reasonable mindset. If there’s going to be a blizzard, you dress warmly, make sure you have supplies if the power goes out and hopefully you’ve had the foresight to change to winter tires. You don’t run around freaking out over something you can’t change. Bad things happen, that’s life. Panicking is not going to help. The flip side to all this is seeing those who are convinced the stellium is signalling a positive time of incredible psychological upheaval, healing and rebirth. Yeah, lightening might strike a couple people, but it doesn’t strike everyone. I can’t tell you how many times new age psuedo astrologers have looked to the heavenly aspects for panaceas to our social woes. Remember the Grand Sextile (Star of David) or “Harmonic Concordance” back in 2003 that was supposed to raise our collective consciousnesses, usher in the Age of Aquarius, foster a renewal of human compassion and other such idealism? I mean, does it look like things have gotten any better overall in terms of geopolitics in the past three years? I’m not trying to say this stellium isn’t important or that it will have no personal effects on people; only that we need to try to be reasonable about this. The Scorpio energy will come and go, painful events and healing may or may not occur, life will go on.
