It scares people when I start in with the New Age talk, but really, everything I believe in is comprised of the ancient traditions and teachings of all the world’s Great Teachers. I’m not saying these men and women were deities; on the contrary, I believe that they were humans meant to teach us lessons about how the Universe interacts with each other through various physical sources of life, whether it is from the celestial positionings and the lunar pulls on the earth’s ebb and flow, the energies languages and other art forms use in order to translate the messages into the physical realm, the power of physical gestures to convey higher messages, the symbolism in numerology and tarot and pagan-derived seasonal effects on the life cycle and renewal of the earth as a gigantic body of perpetual life, I believe all these various sects of learning and the teachers that have arrived all over the planet in different eras were to prepare us for the new movements of life. Fine, call it what you want to about being the “New Age” in this new Age of Aquarius that started last December, and all that stuff; I just believe the social consciousness and efforts of the Universe’s intent has allowed us all to open the doors to mass communications and better align us all for great social change by an undercurrent of social consciousness. I don’t care what you want to call it; the evidence of the advent of social media is undeniable that it has brought humanity together in humongous ways (the Egyptian revolution, the Occupy Wall Street movements, etc.) I’m not saying that these methods weren’t somehow flawed because, when dealing with the works of humans, we’re all going to falter at some point. But progress is being made, no matter how much we deviate and backslide in the process. This has been happening with more immediacy as we have accelerated from the Dark Ages into modern times with the Industrial and Technological Revolutions and now these mass movements into the eradication of civil injustices and inequalities.
Love is winning; we are moving out of darkness, slowly but surely. It’s fascinating to watch. I want in.
Astrologist and Pronoia activist Rob Breszny said this week of the new moon and Rosh Hashana that Aquarians (the Water Bearers/me) would need to consider the following:
Germany’s Ostwall Museum displayed a conceptual installation by the artist Martin Kippenberger. Valued at $1.1 million, it was called “When It Starts Dripping from the Ceiling.” Part of it was composed of a rubber tub that was painted to appear as if it had once held dirty rainwater. One night while the museum was closed, a new janitor came in to tidy up the premises. While performing her tasks, she scrubbed the rubber tub until it was “clean,” thereby damaging the art. Let this be a cautionary tale, Aquarius. It’s important for you to appreciate and learn from the messy stuff in your life — even admire its artistry — and not just assume it all needs to be scoured and disinfected.
Do you wish you could get more clarity about the foggy, ambiguous situations you’re dealing with? Want more help in exploring the Great Mystery that is your life? I discuss your coming week in greater depth in your EXPANDED AUDIO HOROSCOPE.
Imagine that you have been relieved of your responsibilities for a given time. They will be taken care of by people you trust. You won’t have to work to make money during this grace period, but will be given all you need. Nor will you have to clean your house, wash your clothes, or buy and make your food. Now here’s the big question: What will you do now that you are free to do anything you like?
So that’s what I’ve got to work with. That and a library full of instruction manuals from Gandhi, Jesus, Martin Luther King, Jim Henson, Meher Baba, Muhktaran Bibi, Tom Robbins, Sera Beak, the Dalai Llama, Juliette Gordon Low, and all the other champions of Divinity and warriors of Love and social change I’ve always admired. I have their examples to pull from and an army of spiritual mentors and experiences that have crafted me into hurling myself forward into this New Era. I’m positive I’ve never felt so sure of my life since I was a kid. It’s nice to not be underwater anymore. I’m glad I had this platform to chronicle my fight through the darkest spots. I don’t think they’re magically going to just go away because I’ve decided to commit to Love and change my actions, but I’m glad I’ve created this reference manual to cite where I’ve learned lessons before now. I’ve made my own instruction manual to refer to when I’m feeling I’m losing my Self.
Thanks, Self. Thanks for giving me all these tools, protectors, teachers, challengers, mentors, and safety nets to mold me into something I really, really want to be, Universe. I feel purpose-driven, finally. I have confidence that I’m ready to get out there and use what I know. I’m full of energy, clarity, and balance and cannot wait to get started. I can’t stop thinking about this for a second. I cannot shut up about it and stop smiling. I am working my body to exhaustion with this newfound energy and passionate fire.
I won’t let you down.
