As we pause to await Mars slow turning to resume direct motion tomorrow at 23°02 in watery, primal, holder-of-painful-secrets Scorpio —
— let’s remember that we are also in the final days of the two-month long Jupiter/Saturn/Neptune T-cross in mutable signs that has challenged us to learn how to think (left brain) inside the vast mystery (right brain), i.e., how to balance left brain analysis (Jupiter in Virgo), with expanding perspectives (Saturn in Sagittarius), and full-on communion (Neptune in Pisces).
Part of learning how to analyze and perspectivize events is to “compare and contrast.” For example, this very interesting short post:
Another part of learning is to delve into backstories, remembering that any perspective of past, present or future is always one “point of view” among infinities of others . . .
How’s this for a backstory to Brexit?
And, from an even larger perspective, it just might be that —
— in other words, that yes, there ARE limits to growth, material growth, on a finite planet. Duh! Will Brexit be the wake up call that heralds a transformation from material to spiritual growth, from competition to cooperation, from separation — from our own bodies, from humans and other species, from the living breathing Earth body — to full on communion?
So far, the only kind of cooperation we manage to effect is war games, for example, what’s taking place now, in the Pacific, that includes the Chinese.
Obviously, things are not as they appear (Neptune also governs deception). But what is the Saturn reality? And how do we know? What kind of evidence and analysis (Virgo) would do?
Meanwhile, in this country, we hear about violence in Sacramento, eight people stabbed.
And yet, and yet. How about this headline, focused on Chicago, one location for pockets of urban resilience via re-connection with the Earth mother that are springing up in all sorts of localities, like mushrooms, blooming above the subterranean mycellium that vibrates us all into harmony.
Pockets of violence and pockets of resilience, side by side. How to compute? How to live in a world which does seem to have separated into two utterly divergent realities, one of hate (fear) and the other of loving aliveness. Well, I say, choose the path of loving aliveness. Focus there, be that. Continuously center yourself as one unique and singular and beautiful Earth antenna, head open to the sky, feet gripping the good ground, heart and hands open to embrace all. Inspire others with your capacity to be present to this great climactic unfolding of the End Times, this vast New Beginning for life on Earth. And meanwhile, remember, remember, the so much vaster expanding context.
