“Viruses are our smallest unsung heroes.” This quote comes from an article by Peter Pollard – see link in my complete article. He is describing the benefits many viruses give us. We ourselves harbour millions of them in what is known as our virome. According to another article – link also in the complete article – from Scientific American, “viruses may be responsible for significant episodes of evolutionary change, especially in more complex types of organisms.” And yet another article suggests that viruses might turn genes on and off.
Coronavirus is, of course, no joke. Although there are many viruses that are benign, it is not one of them. Statistics are showing that the death rate is low but sadly people are dying! Just because many have underlying conditions and are elderly doesn’t make that fact any easier to cope with. However, the global nature of this phenomenon and the response to it is something I find fascinating. Particularly, of course, using an astrological lens. It kills a lot fewer people than many other things – so why the hype?
The astrological questions
Why now? And for me – what are we supposed to learn? Astrology is a wonderful tool for gaining insight on possible meanings of this crisis, due to the fact it has something to say about time. Being a symbolic language, it can suggest what this might be all about. To discuss these questions, I will look at planetary patterns, a little epidemic history, and the effects so far. As I discussed in a post on accidents, the effect of an accident often gives clues as to why we needed a ‘break’. I think that works for this sort of crisis too. The global effects of this pandemic have been enormous, so what are they and why might this pandemic be useful? Will COVID-19 kick-start evolutionary changes?
