Here it is, the week of the Total Solar Eclipse in Scorpio (exact tomorrow, 21.57 degrees of Scorpio, 22.09 GMT), followed a couple of hours later by retrograde Mercury sliding back into Scorpio (not returning to Sagittarius for another month). Award for the most symbolically appropriate news feature for me this morning goes to the BBC – Invisibility Cloaks: Will we ever really have them?” The feature is about “cloaking” science aka “Transformation Optics” and astrologers cannot help but make the link to Pluto (one of Scorpio’s planets) and the mythology of his invisibility helmet, enabling him to leave the underworld unseen, and his symbolism of change, absence and transformation.
From a cultural point of view it’s probably quite British to say “don’t get involved”. Where I live in Greece, however, an argument or an accident on the road would empty cafes as everyone rushes in to have their say or to offer help. I think the point is to decide what you want to be involved in right now, and what you don’t. For now, in the shadowy world of the eclipse and Mercury being super secretive, the current astrology would suggest some value in “absenting” yourself and staying invisible in any situation that is highly charged or puzzlingly complex.
