Ever since the ancient Greeks first cast their eyes to the heavens and pondered the stars, astronomy and astrology have been both intertwined and at odds with each other. Though starting from a common point, the two schools of thought have often found themselves on opposite sides of the cosmos, figuratively and literally, in terms of charting the effects that the planets and stars have on us earthbound entities.

In the coming weeks, however, events in the heavens are going to bring about a kind of cosmic convergence of these two views of the stars. I truly believe that both astronomy and astrology are going to find themselves agreeing, if only for the moment, on the impact of these events.

Astronomers have been charting the increase in solar activity in this cycle (which is referred to as cycle 24). This activity has been marked by a dramatic increase in solar flares, sunspots, and solar flux, the latter being a primary cause of disruption in radio waves. Today, Sunday March 6th, at 12:55 p.m. EST, shows a new high for this cycle, eclipsing the previous high set just yesterday. Sunspots, too, are at an all-time high for the period and show no signs of slowing down.

Astrologers are also aware of a coming storm which impacts communications and relationships as well. To begin with, Mars and the Sun will be in exact conjunction with the Sun and will stay that way until May. The energy and need to dominate, which is the center piece of this aspect, is only going to increase throughout the next few weeks and into the month of Aries, which Mars rules. The impact of the disruptions in communications and the Sun-Mars dance could have dramatic import in terms of conflicts and revelations around the globe.

Another significant aspect is the Sun Square Pluto occurrence on March 28th. As I wrote about previously, the Plutonian effect this year in terms of revolutions, upheavals and revelations is going to be profound. This aspect marks a spike in the pressure to toss out the old-governments, relationships, beliefs and more, bringing many things to the boiling point. What happens when the curtain is dropped and what is going on behind the scenes is revealed could be explosive.

When the increased solar activity is added to the mix, the result could well be similar to the proverbial blending of gasoline and matches. Perhaps a bungled or misunderstood attempt at communicating a thought or action opens the door for the change that has been building up for so long and seeking an outlet to replace the outworn past, certainly an event that could be compared with a solar flare.

Last, but certainly not least, is the upcoming Mercury Retrograde on March 30th. This will be the first one of 2011 and, given the other astrological aspects bringing pressure to bear, may well be the most dramatic. Add in the disruptions in communications from the solar activity described above and the potential of misunderstanding, mistakes, and general interference with all kinds of relationship and communication issues is profound. Forewarned is forearmed and it behooves all of us to remember just how powerful words can be: those which are not spoken as well as those that are.

It is abundantly clear that astrology and astronomy can agree that this is a time of dramatic activity. Both sciences clearly predict that disruption in our communications and, by extension, daily lives is like to increase. Does that increase in solar radiation also impact behavior much like planetary aspects do? Could this be the “X-Factor” in the coming weeks? Astronomers will look to their instruments, astrologers to their charts and, in truth, both will seek to guide us through this cosmic convergence.
