The First Thanksgiving (September 29, 1621)
The time is randomized, but the message is clear: the double Yod pointing at Pluto in Taurus is significant.
Sun (and Neptune) Inconjunct Pluto
You have a very strong will and can be quite stubborn, even when you don’t have any particular reason to be. It is as if you automatically resist any pressure to act in a particular way, even if you know it is good for you. This may arise from a fear of being controlled, helpless or manipulated by anyone else. As you get older, this fear may lead you to manipulate others so that they cannot manipulate you. It is very important to develop confidence in yourself, so that you will not behave this way very frequently. Your relationship with your father will be particularly important, for his actions and his opinions of you will strongly affect your sense of well-being.
(This is the Pilgrim Spirit, personified.)
Pluto Inconjunct Ascendant
This can be an indication that through experiences with others, you will be forced to undergo many significant changes in life. At times the crises may be quite unpleasant, but for the most part the results will be very positive, although for some people, they may be less constructive. But you must be careful about the kind of people you get involved with. Choose your friends with great care and try to find people who have a healthy outlook on life and who seem reasonably well balanced. People who ae driven to extreme behavior or who act compulsively, as if they could not plan anything in advance, are not very good for you. They will get you into difficult situations that you do not need.
And for good measure:
Moon Inconjunct Mars
Until you learn to handle your feelings, you are likely to get angry easily, have temper tantrums and be touchy about what is yours and what is not. You may feel you have to defend yourself against imagined threats. The problem here is that you are likely to become too emotionally involved with ideas, opinions or even objects without knowing it until someone threatens them. Then you react as if you were being personally threatened or attacked. You have to realize that it is possible to change your opinions and attitudes without damaging your worth as a person.
Seems Like We’re Talking About COVID-19, Doesn’t It?
They say that ‘what goes around, come around again’. This is especially true when it comes to aspects in astrology charts. I’ve written about these aspects recently, and the echoes are so strong to the problems that the Pilgrims faced in their first years at Plymouth that it makes me think we need to change our attitudes to the pandemic.
