While on the one hand we have experienced this year the beginnings of revolution for democracy in countries that have been run by tyrants and dictators and oppressive governments; there is sumultaneously a movement within so-called democracies to transform their systems. Some are preaching to not vote anymore.
The Arab Spring has shown us revolutions in Egypt, Tunisia, Libya, Yemen, Syria, and other Arab countries to throw off the yoke of control over the people by dictators like Egyptian president Mubarak. Many of the revolutionaries are also tired of their countries being controlled by western powers, especially the USA. They want true democracy, where the people decide what their government and lives will be like.
But in Europe and the USA there is another movement happening, a revolution by mostly young people who have become disillusioned by the current state of their democracies. In the USA, this is exemplified by the Occupy Wall Street protests going on in New York. These people and others in the western world are sick and tired of their individual voice in their world having been taken over by big corporate and other special interests. They know their government leaders are mainly pawns to the power of the Military/Economic Empire. They believe therefore that their vote is meaningless.
These people are contemplating not voting anymore. The envision a world similar to the internet’s world wide web. That New World would be decentralized, non hierarchal, where people would be truly liberated, but also responsible for themselves and the world they live in.
Wha they are envisioning is truly an Aquarian world. Aquarius is about decentralization, no central control and no ladder of a power structure. There is equality and equal value of all individuals and peoples. There is no privilege and no more values of intrinsic superiority and inferiority. “All Men (people) are created Equal” is an Aquarian value and the USA has its natal Moon in Aquarius. This right to equality is part of our national conscience. One country or religion is not superior to another. That superior/inferior value is part of the old paradigm.
So you can see how the revolutionary movements, both the Arab Spring, and the beginning shoots of western world revolution, are bringing us to an Aquarian Age. These new growths, connected to the Aquarian Age, are appearing in the cracks of the structure of our Old World as it begins to crumble.
So as you watch the often depressing disillusions of the values of our old world, which is now filled by corruption, dysfunction, incompetency, lies, pretenses, and lack of love and compassion, do not despair. It is true that the cracks in the Old World structure will get bigger and bigger as catastrophic events explode into our world. Institutions we have relied on will crumble to the ground.
But these new green and fresh growths of new ideas and energies will soon flood through the openings in the fallen old structure, to provide us with the hope for our future here on Earth.
I am sure you have noticed that most of the revolutionary movement has been peaceful. Hopefully the protesters and revolutionaries will stay peaceful, as Ghandi and Martin Luther King Junior taught us through their civil disobedience movements that progress can be made that way.
But it is quite possible, even likely, that the Powers That Were will panic and use excessive violence to keep their old world’s domination.
Expect the nature of the Universe, and its “desire” to bring in new energies and ideas and a new Age, to break down the Old World and its paradigm and power. The economy, which provides privilege to some, cannot stay like it has in our past, because it is not conducive to the principle that all are created equal.
And superpower nations who dominate as a military bully will not stand in the Aquarian Age. We must all, as American citizens, contribute to the transformation of our American family into one that takes care of all its members, returns to its awesome values from its beginnings, and connects as an equal member with all peoples around the world to create, in alignment with Aquarian Age values, a healthy human community and Earth.
The changes coming will be increasingly intense, from now until 2020 at least. The Mayan Calendar, according to Johan Calleman is ending after some 16 billion years. He expects earth shaking events to happen between now and October 28 2011, when he says the calendar is ending and a new unity consciousness is born. Comet Elenin’s closest approach to Earth is in mid October and so coincides with this calendar ending. Comet Elenin has been disintegrating, however, and its meaning therefore is more nebulous.
Regardless of what happens between now and then, the planets keep moving after that, and inform us of the changes coming to our world and human family. The Aquarian Age is not fully formed yet by any imagination, and I personally believe we will not pass through that portal until after December 2020, when Jupiter conjucts Saturn in Aquarius at 0+ degrees.
Remember, however, that more important than finding a date when the New World begins, is each of us finding inside our self the consciousness that aligns us with that Aquarian Age. That consciousness will bring you more fully to your authentic Self, one not so tainted by the programming of the old culture. That consciousness will also motivate you to find your function and purpose within our greater human community. You will combine your individuality into the unity of our new Earth community. Your new consciousness will be connected spiritually to the Oneness of the Universe, so you will be better able to receive its meaningful messages and co-create within its wholeness.
You will respect the individuality of others, regardless of their orientations, as you realize more and more that we each are a part of the balance of the Universe, like the balance of nature. Each individual creation is a cell in the greater body of the human family, and is integral, once it functions according to its authenticity, in the “ecosystem” of the Universe.
You will know that all the dots of the Universe are connected meaningfully, and all happens as part of the cycles and seasons of the spheres of that Universe.
I will not be writing this blog next week, as I am on vacation, but will return on Saturday October 15 for a new written Perspectives from the Sky, as well as as radio presentation as well (see below).
Keep in mind till then that we are now in the first half of the Libra lunar cycle, which began this past Tuesday September 27 at the Libra New Moon. That began a monthly journey into concentration on relationship, fairness, and balance. This does not mean only romantic relationships, but all relationships and social skills and endeavors. It also means making relationship, as in bringing things together, like an artist or decorator does. It is looking for balance or fairness, like in the scales of justice. It is making the connections between ideas and thoughts also, realizing how one thing makes relationship with another.
The next Full Moon, will be in Aries on Tuesday October 11 at 10:06 PM EDT. The strength of self and being true to self and one’s independence will want to be combined with relationship. It is important to assert your needs as an individual, and not be a doormat in your relationships.
