This article by Brian Clark is a gem. It is both well-researched and well-written. It generally illustrates that Pan is related to panic, panic is etymologically related to pandemonium, and that brings us to the pandemic. Turning around and running away very fast is what panic is all about.
In the old school Pan is thought to be a ruler of Capricorn. He was changed into a Goat-fish (not the sort of thing one tends to see these days) in an effort to escape after the great fight with Typhon. With a number of planets lined up in Capricorn since November, and with retrograde motion bringing this concentration back into Capricorn again over the next few months, it would make sense that Pan should come into focus at this time. Due to his mythological character Pan was associated with nature, fertility, the garden and spring.
If you’re into both mythology and astrology, Brian’s six page composition is a wonderful read.
