Astrological Cycles and the Collective: 2017 – 2024

Jessica Davidson

To get our heads around current events we need to understand how the collective mass of humanity changes over time. And that means plunging into the depths of the collective unconscious.

The collective unconscious is the atmosphere in which we move. But like fish swimming in the ocean who don’t understand the nature of water, we rarely try to understand our own condition. We emerge from and are created by the collective into which we’re born.

Like so many people, I am a paradox. I am a politically conservative vegetarian. I am from a Christian background, and still tend to like those values, but am a metaphysical astrologer trained in science who has an interest in the magic of ancient Egypt and a weird belief that some piece of our essence can live on a server. I live in Texas, but like chatting with my international Wordpress pals the best. I learn by teaching. Technically, I am a "Leo," but I am very, very Aquarian with a dose of Scorpio. I bitterly complain about Algol (and Algol personaliites), yet it is the one star that defines me most (other than Regulus). (Which, oddly, makes me an Algol personality.) I am a reclusive lover of peace and quiet who has the Ascendant in the Via Combusta (the most conflict ridden part of the zodiac). I am an incredibly private person with a blog with over 800 followers and 50 to 150 regular daily visitors. I could go on, but I think you get the picture.
