As we seek positive responses to the crisis its is easy to project our fear and anguish into the collective and to empower outer circumstances and feel powerless and discouraged. If that is our response then we are caught into the frenzy of the collective psychosis and we become part of this mass of confusion being sucked into the vortex of fear and panic. With this Full Moon coming on the 7th the tension is bound to rise as the conflict of opposites rages on. With the Jupiter Pluto conjunction exact all week ending with next Tuesday's Lunation and with Uranus in square to the Mars Saturn conjunction these energies are very tense and polarizing.
THESE ARE THE DEFINING DAYS OF OUR TIMES
THERE IS A DIFFERENT RESPONSE WE CAN CHOOSE.
S. Covey defines responsibility as the ability to respond.
What is the most empowering response I can choose to have in these times? Like with any psychosis the answer is within. We must realize that the anguish and fear we feel is our own and we have to show up for it and listen to what it has to say to us in a constructive and responsible manner.
We can choose to feed the madness by being mad our self or we can be the change that we want to see by dealing with love with the inner content that are rising up in our dreams, visions and meditations.
As with the native prophecy I shared a few days ago it is clear that these are really good times for profound change on how we treat each other, ourselves, our planet, our leaders and our economic structures. There is a tremendous opportunity in these times to move forward in creating the new world we have been entrusted to create. It is up to us. We cannot seek a leader outside of ourselves but we must rise as leaders together.
TIMES LIKE THESE GIVE BIRTH TO POWERFUL SOCIAL MOVEMENTS.
The isolation is getting to us in a big way. We are so vulnerable and we can hear the call of madness deep down below. Breakdowns are likely as the Moon intensifies and so this is a time to reach out to each other and form strong bonds in a community of mutual interest. Reach out to your neighbours and friends. Be present with your family and take time to nurture your inner path by giving a voice to the inner tension you feel.
NAME IT, OWN IT AND SHOW UP FOR IT.
This fear and this anguish has so much to teach you about your self and if you engage with it then you turn the fear into courage. And at no time in our current history have we had needed more courage then now. Think about the individual courage and collective effort that took place during World War two. The unity of purpose, the resistance to fascism and atrocities, the courage that was needed to stem the tied of evil and what it taught us about the human experience on both sides of the ledger.
IN THE COUNTER CULTURE WE SPEAK AFFECTIONATELY OF THE COMING AGE OF AQUARIUS.
As Jung pointed out in his work a new age is not born without great labour pains. This is the meaning and opportunity of our times. Not the virus, not the economic crash, not the social break downs, but the responsibility we have been given to speak our truth and to be strong for each other in this great moment of need.
As the I Ching says, this is a time of energetic progress in the good. We can change the course of history by showing up and not cowering down like little sheep, afraid of a little thunder or the big bad wolf.
Use the power of this Full Moon to re-dedicate your self to your inner child, to your creative and spiritual practice and then focus on the next right thing. And slowly bring a positive momentum to the times. We can do this together.
If you focus your inner process this way you will have learned the secret of turning fear into courage. We're in it together.
Peace and love
