“I sing of Poseidon, god of the deep
O Shaker of the Earth, tamer of horses
Be kindly in heart and help those who voyage in ships!”
~Homeric Hyms, 4th Century, BCE
Pandemics and pirates, poisons and pardons. This month the planets Jupiter and Neptune, gods of the land and sea, with the centaur Chiron, divine healer, begin a summer-long dance. Jupiter heralds hope and expansion, but also excess; Neptune solace, but also confusion; Chrion healing, but also wounding.
This triple conjunction in the humanitarian sign of Aquarius is a gift. Like waves crashing on the shore remake the coastline, so too are we remade by the tides of history. The cosmic message: Surrender and have faith. Set your sights on a star, and navigate your seas with integrity and courage.
