It seems to me that the Coronavirus strategy is primarily focused around protecting old people. With Jupiter, Saturn, and Pluto in Capricorn, this makes sense. In an age that idolises youth - where the older vote in the referendum was dismissed as a denial of the future for young people, and where older women become 'invisible' - maybe old people are now seen as having more value? The US Presidential election is being fought between men in their 70s.

I reckon there are 2 things going on around the Coronavirus: there are the governmental responses, as described by Mars' Capricornian (government) passage across Jupiter, Pluto and, in a week's time, Saturn. This will complete the lockdown, and may well include a military element (Mars-Saturn): soldiers on the streets. And that may be because of the rebellious element of Aquarius, the sign that Mars and Saturn are moving into.

And then there is the spread of the virus, which is described by Mercury in its journey through Pisces to meet Neptune, also in about a week's time. So that is the time to watch out for. These 2 planets in Pisces are hard to control, and indeed they do not aspect the Mars-Jupiter-Pluto-Saturn stellium, suggesting that the lockdown may not ultimately have much effect. The virus will do what it does, and the conjunction in a week will empower it to spread.
In early May, Saturn (the lockdown) will start to go retrograde. So it will be around then that governments will start to reconsider the measures. However, to some degree or other the lockdown seems likely to last until Saturn goes Direct in late September.

My personal opinon is that we need to get this Coronavirus done ASAP. There is a Mars-Jupiter conjunction in Capricorn at present, applying for the next 2 days, so the government (Capricorn) is putting up a big (Jupiter) fight (Mars). With any luck, events will overtake their strategy over the next 2 weeks as Mercury (transmission) approaches a conjunction with Neptune in Pisces (pandemic). Life is for the living, life and death between them are a part of a much bigger dream. Remember the suffering caused by austerity, we can now learn from that (as Saturn starts to leave Capricorn) and not enact something far worse.

Some people think I am being callous when I say these things, but I am not. Choices have to be made, and more deaths than there might have been - mostly on the part of people in poor health - needs to be weighed against a disastrous breakdown at a basic level, which is what we are facing. Pluto in Capricorn stuff. I've already been called things for saying this, and have blocked one friend as a result. People think you are being uncaring when you say these things, and that is not true.

This complex civilisation we have created, that makes us feel so powerful: it is fragile, it is a bubble on the surface of mother earth. We are being shown this.

If we are any sort of healer, then one of our functions in the community is to stand apart from the collective compulsions, as real as they can appear, and be a still point that, energetically, can feed back to the collective in a good way. This is the North of the Medicine Wheel, the place of the Mind and the Elder, that is cool like Air and has objectivity.

This principle applied to the referendum division we experienced in the UK over the last few years, and it was unfortunately rare to find healers who were prepared to do their job and appreciate both sides. In the US, there was the now infamous 2016 panel of 12 astrologers, 11 of whom predicted Hillary Clinton would win the election. That is just the collective liberal bias that astrologers are prone to: the 'nice guys', the 'conscious people' vote Democrat. Or Labour. Nonsense. The problem with the right wing is that they often don't care enough; the problem with the left wing is that they are often intolerant hypocrites who think they own the moral high ground. It is beneath us to be identified with any political party, though we may have preferences.

Now we have the mass fear that is being generated over what seems to be the equivalent of a fairly potent flu. So let us see if we can do better this time and not join in with the collective compulsion. That is what we are here to do.

The sign of Capricorn has earned the experience to lead in the community, in the sense of upholding traditions. Aquarius, which comes next, is the leader who has earned the right to break the traditions and to stand apart. That is what we need now, people who can stand apart from the collective fear and, if need be, be deemed 'irresponsible' for doing so.

The epidemic is about to escalate significantly as Mercury the transmitter re-enters Pisces on 16th March - after his thoughtful, incubatory retrograde period - and conjoins viral Neptune in his own sign on the 4th of April. So the next 3 weeks are likely to be the decisive ones.

Everything major needs to be seen right now as ultimately coming under the signifier of Saturn-Pluto in Capricorn, the planetary conjunction that we had in January, and which will define the coming years. So Mercury-Neptune-Pisces is triggering this epidemic, but it is likely to have a lasting impact, coming so soon after the Saturn-Pluto conjunction. It tells us something about the meaning of that conjunction. Something maybe to do with the rapid breaking of national boundaries - Pluto hitting Saturn in Capricorn - as this epidemic has spread. 

A real globalisation, that isn't just about moving your corporation to where the labour is cheap. And that maybe reflects the growing importance of the environmental issue, which is also global. So something to do with us being one world, but one that needs to respect national sovereignties, as Brexit  - also part of this conjunction - has warned us.

So what do you reckon, the Coronavirus will go epidemic around Mercury going Direct in Pisces on 16th March? And pandemic around Mercury conjoining Neptune in Pisces on 4th April? Whatever those terms mean... you probably get my drift.
The thought I was having this morning on Coronavirus was that it shows us just how much we are one world these days. The whole world - apart from 3rd world countries who have more important things to think about like the next meal - is plugged into this flu in a panicky kind of way, which is unfortunate, and it's easy to try and blame someone, like 'the media', but like most things, it is just collective consciousness at work, which is why I am not a conspiracist.

But like I say, it is showing us just how connected we all are nowadays, and it is good to feel that, because it is too easy to view our trade competitors like China as somewhat hostile and 'other'. We are all in this together, exaggerated as it may be, and this is something we can experience, and I think that is a good thing. And this is maybe a real globalisation, unlike the fake one we have had, which has just meant cheap labour in China for Apple and Dyson etc until the Philippines gets cheaper.
