It's a fairly quiet week until the weekend, as Sun approaching its move into Scorpio will begin to change our moods and our thoughts. Saturn, who is winding up its 2.5 year stay in Scorpio is feeling the pressure to wrap up as much as it can before it vacates Scorpio, and won't return for 28 years, so it's in urgent mode. It's quite likely from the 22nd of Oct to the 21st of Nov we will be doing some very deep internal purging, more intense than we have experienced so far, because time is of the essence. I cannot stress enough how important this last sweep of Saturn through Scorpio is and its mission of making us clear out our darkness, look at it, embrace it, love it and release it, so we can be ready for the adventures of Saturn in Sagittarius, ruled by Jupiter and the guardian of Higher Education, Long Distance Travel and Spirituality, the latter being the key here.
I went to a lecture this week by an Astrologer who spoke about "coming trends". It was quite dark. It spoke of monetary collapse, global war, downed power grids and more. I don't want to go into the details because it makes manifest what I write here. I tell you this for the mundane view of our potential. We can reach for the stars, change our vibrations by being seekers and practitioners of the Light, by caring for others, by being kind and generous, and by being an example for others. The World Is Changing, like it or not. And it can be changed by higher vibrations and purpose, or it can be changed by complete destruction followed by rebirth. Mankind is a teenager, embarking on adulthood. We are changing out immaturity for maturity, impulsive behavior by planned action, tantrums by reason and diplomacy, and recklessness by certainty.
Imagine a world where each nation has its own valued resources and trades those resources with each other for not only the resource itself, but for creating community and friendships. The USA could be the food basket and the coal resource, which, with research, could be turned into a clean fuel. The Middle East would be the trader of oil. Central and South America another food basket at different seasons assuring fruits and vegetables year round for the world consumption, etc.
Imagine people working 20 hours a week in community service if you don't choose a full time career - farming, water maintenance, house building, policing and fire departments, social workers, government clerks, street sweeping, pet control and adoption, garbage collection, etc. - while the rest of the time we do what we want. Art, Science, Medicine, Travel, Invention, Music, Dance, Song, Writing, Story Telling/Acting, etc. but not for money. We all get a "stipend" of some sort in the form of credits, from the collective and an equal amount for everyone, and everyone has food, housing and health care so there are no homeless, or hungry or sick people without recourse. Want a bigger house than your neighbor? Then spend your stipend on that. But you are not better than, richer than, or more important than anyone else. Society is a safety net for everyone. Life is about growing, learning, becoming more useful, wise and enlightened while enjoying the bounty for this amazing planet.
It's about relationships, and family and friends and community and lots and lots of love an happiness.
Some might say pipe dream, but its NOT. I remember there was a Star Trek episode where they found cryogenic pods of people from our day and thawed them out and cured them. One was a wealthy businessman who was acting like a child the moment he woke up, spouting his importance, his needs, his wants. In the end, when he found out his money had long been dissolved, that his company was long gone, and he had nothing he asked, "whats the point?" then? "A lot has changed in three hundred years. People are no longer obsessed with the accumulation of 'things'. We have eliminated hunger, want, the need for possessions." (TNG: "The Neutral Zone") To become a better person - to improve and enrich ourselves is true evolution, to become better tomorrow than you are today. So what does "better" mean?
Better is ultimately more loving, caring, sympathetic, empathetic, but it also includes smarter (keep learning no matter your age, what you learn in this life is FOREVER with you. Geniuses are just people who studied the craft they excel now at in other lives too, and bring all that knowledge to this one. Listen to others when they tell their stories and learn how different we all are and embrace that difference. A garden only with roses become dull. Add a Lilly, an iris, a poppy, a marigold, a carnation...and you have a garden of beauty and color and interest. And work on your spiritual self. Keep connected to your higher self, your spirit. When you are having bad times, reach out to your guides, angels, etc and ASK for help. Embrace the Universe and your life will be on a path to true riches. There is magic out there!
Look at the animals, plants, water ways, land, mountains, sky and revel in the creation of this amazing place we call home. Think of the known galaxies and ponder the unknown, and revel in the wonder of the Creator and all s/he can do. Then remind yourself that YOU are a piece of that Creator, like a leaf on a tree, you are still part of the tree, and you have magical abilities too. You can manifest things, if you believe, and if the timing is right. These abilities come from your Higher Chakras, they come from Love. Love really is the answer. How can we bomb people if we love them. How can we steal away pensions if we love them. How can we let sick people die when we have cures, if we love them? We can't. And by caring, and being FAIR, we change the world, one block at a time. Be your block leader and just sit on your front porch and pray for everyone on your block. Stand in your window with a view and send out love to everyone you can see for miles and miles. Spread the love around. It's free. There's lots more where that came from. Bathe in it. Drink it. Spread it around and there will always be more to give. And this month is Libra's month, the sign ruled by Venus. Use that energy to enable a better life.
Pray for us, the planet and the stars. Hard times are coming, but with courage and a connection to spirit, we can make way for a new world....the fun way, the magical way, the way of love and peace, or the hard way. It's up to you to be a Light Worker and do your part.
Much love to you all.
