For those of us who “lean left” to quote a friend of mine, it’s been an amazing 24 hours: Proposition 8 overturned in California, only to be followed in mere hours by the seeming certainty of Elena Kagan being appointed to the Supreme Court. Wow!
My dad, who will turn 87 in the fall, tells me “Diane, you never know what will happen in life. That’s why I get out of bed each morning – to see what will happen next.”
As noted here before, the astrology blogsophere has been more full of doom and gloom this summer than a Tea Party convention. “The sky is falling! The sky is falling!”
What’s happening, I think is that the sun is setting and a new day is dawning. We can keep looking longingly at the setting sun, wringing our hands and saying “ain’t it awful…” or we can wait, breathlessly and in prayerful, hopeful anticipation as the new day dawns and like my dad say “I wonder what will happen next?”
Whether you’re reading/listening to/watching the news and/or watching “the stars” or (best) meditating and tuning in to the Cosmos, you must surely see that “we’re not in Kansas anymore, Toto”. And yet, we’re not in Oz yet either. We are most assuredly “on the road to findout” as Cat Stevens used to sing.
And if it’s true (as I believe it is) that what we focus on expands, then whatever our opinion of the current zeitgeist we’re best served by constantly looking for the good, looking for the just, looking for the beautiful and focusing on that.
Yesterday was President Obama’s birthday. Tomorrow the Cardinal Grand Cross/T-Square has a big finale. I must admit, even positive me had some not so positive fears as I looked at those juxtapositions and what the planetary ‘weather map’ seemed to be telling me (as I studied it months in advance).
But (for those who speak my language) Uranus is not only the Great Awakener, but also the Bringer of Big Surprises. Teaming up as he is with Jupiter (the Big Expander) – well, that’s code for Big Surprises and Big Changes.
So I will continue to envision Big Goodness unfolding in surprising ways – not just “out there” but “in here”. And the more of us that get on the Polar Express and BELIEVE – believe in the good, in God’s grace, in a beautiful world – the more quickly that goodness will manifest.
Will you help us all to birth this new age? I do believe it’s time.
