Evidently I’m not the only one asking this question. If you’ve been reading this blog for a while, you know that I’ve been very skeptical of the hysteria surrounding the swine flu which arrived just as Chiron and Neptune were aligning in conjunction. Chiron rules over matters of health and healing, and Neptune’s domain is mysteries and vaccinations so the rush to find a vaccination for the swine flu was to be expected. The addition of Jupiter to the mix in the spring resulted in an overblown (Jupiter) fear of this unknown (Neptune) new threat to our health (Chiron).
As I wrote in this earlier post, it’s easy to be suspicious when billions of dollars can be made from a pandemic and now that the spread of the swine flu has proven to be significantly less extensive than first feared, the skepticism is spreading faster than the flu.
Jupiter and Chiron conjoin for the final time in February of 2010 at the height of flu season. After that time this whole issue will have subsided.
