Lyrics: Passenger – Scare Away the Dark
“Well, sing, sing at the top of your voice. Love without fear in your heart. Feel, feel like you still have a choice if we all light up we can scare away the dark. We wish our weekdays away, spend our weekends in bed, drink ourselves stupid and work ourselves dead. And all just because that’s what mom and dad said we should do.”
“Monkey Mind” is a Buddhist term which describes the persistent churn of thoughts in the undisciplined mind. Criticism. Fear. Judgment. It is self-absorbed, self-centered and very self-conscious about how “I” appear to others and what “I should” do to protect and take care of “me, myself and I.” Unsettled. Restless. Capricious. Whimsical. Fanciful. Inconstant. Confused. Indecisive. Uncontrollable. It is time for Monkey Mind to take a little trip to Heaven.
The monthly ritual of “new beginnings and good intentions” occurs on July 26th at 6:43pm (EST). Sun and Moon merge @ 3 Leo. The Sun rules Leo, at home in the natural 5th House of children, falling in love and Soul inspiration. Time to shine! Jupiter (Divinity) and the Sun (Soul Essence) sit down together to make a toast on July 24th. The Sun is bigger than Jupiter. Don’t jump the gun. Mars enters Scorpio the same day as the New Moon. The answer to the question everyone is holding their breath for is “who is going to be the first to take action to stop the fighting?” Doesn’t matter who started it. How do we bring about peaceful resolution personally, locally and globally? The focus for the next 29 days is “how will my actions today help create peace on Earth?”
Monkey Mind goes to Heaven. Optimism. Buoyancy. Good Ju-Ju! Take action. Holistic philosophy is the perfect delusion for anyone who, all decked out in the latest fashion, loves to talk about solving the problems of the world but has no intention of sweating a drop in achieving this noble goal. That’s Monkey Mind for you. Mars has spent the last eight months is balance-leaning Libra. This time has been spent (hopefully) learning to trust Self. Time to turn the tables as Mars covers ground quickly to make a meeting with Mr. Responsibility- Father Time, aka Saturn, on August 26th at 17 Scorpio.
The New Moon square Mars is asking “how does my behavior affect others and how do they see me?” Actions and words are echoed back to us quickly now! Expect to get a true measure of one’s own integrity as well in the coming weeks. Mars reveals much to each of us. We are all learning to get along now and it is important that you can trust yourself to do what we each KNOW to do. If you do not, the road ahead will become bumpy. Think back to August 2012. Remember? Potentials are being fulfilled in all directions and we each need to take note of our own circumstances, our own lives and decide what potentials we want to see fulfilled in the coming months. Yes, everyone has something to contribute! Participate in life please!
“We should run through the forest. We should swim in the streams. We should laugh, we should cry, we should love, we should dream. We should stare at the stars and not just the screens. You should hear what I’m saying and know what it means. To sing, sing at the top of your voice. Love without fear in your heart. Feel, feel like you still have a choice, if we all light up we can scare away the dark.”
We’re over halfway through 2014, the Year of Spiritual Growth. This New Moon signals a turning point of courage, Sheroism, determination, endurance and lion-heartedness where Leo resides in your own chart. If you find yourself complaining about or criticizing others I would encourage you to take this 21-day challenge (click here). For the Pluto in Leo Generation (June 1939 – June 1958) Jupiter will be activating an old dream in the next year. Remember that revolution you were waiting for back in the 60’s? Trust your intuition!
Uranus Pluto and Venus are creating a “push-pull” dynamic. Embrace this “push-pull” as it is asking everyone to test their Intuition. New chapter in Life. Discernment. Do you listen to that part of yourself? I sure hope so! Monkey Mind stresses us out. With intuition one is never rushed, stressed or hurried. I would encourage everyone to tap into this new form of communication called Intuition. It keeps Monkey Mind calm. Soothing. Refreshed. Relaxed. As a whole we’ve never been here before. We’ve spent 9 very long months gestating Intuition and now we give birth during the New Moon. Flex your “intuitive muscle.”
Globally: The USA has some speed bumps ahead. Whistle-Blowers. The truth will be revealed when the public is ready to receive it. In a recent global poll it was revealed that the global majority believes the USA is the greatest threat to peace on this planet. Ouch! The American public is going to experience some home-truth Revelations (September & October) that will surprise many. Do your own research to answer your questions. Pay attention over the next few months. Would you believe me if I told you that there will come a day when BIG corporations will be competing to be the MOST transparent and outdo one another with good deeds and goodwill for humanity? Hard to believe, but these times, they are a changin’! White Moon Selene just entered Capricorn on July 17th, the day after Jupiter entered Leo. She’s going to activate the potent Cardinal Cross energies during the October Eclipses. Watch for “small” signs in the coming weeks.
Personally: Welcome to the beginning. Confluence of consciousness. Please ask your Intuition to reveal itself. You will NOT be disappointed. How often do you practice and play with your Intuition? Look for good news when you play and practice. Monkey Mind will get used to playing in Heaven. Once you start playing you are going to begin to notice an amazing thing – - Serendipity and Synchronicity. Two powerful tools in your arsenal of non-self-protection. They guide us when we trust self! Intuition is the Divine God-Spark of Knowledge that KNOWS. Use generously, especially over the next two weeks. Practice. Practice. Practice!
Our “point of view” about “self” is morphing. Clarity. Do not allow Snake Oil Salesmen to sell you a line of bull-shit or pander to personal instant-self- gratification. Think for yourself. TRUST YOURSELF! Pay particular attention to anyone selling something that promises wealth, health or beauty without putting forth any effort. They profit. We are learning to set Monkey Mind free and rely on Divine Tools, and that includes sacrifice or effort of some type. Every element of Western Culture is geared to provide maximum short-term self-gratification, while many of those who fail to be gratified view themselves as victims. We are each a small part of the Collective Whole. Participation with the Divine is not the path to personal power. The question is “how am I contributing to peaceful resolution on my home planet? How does my behavior affect others?” Answer those questions honestly to yourself and the path is clear!
Monkey Mind is going to Heaven, enjoy this ride………………………
“Well, we wish we were happier, thinner and fitter. We wish we weren’t losers and liars and quitters. We want something more not just nasty and bitter. We want something real not just hash tags and Twitter. It’s the meaning of life and it’s streamed live on YouTube. But I bet Gangnam Style will still get more views. We’re scared of drowning, flying and shooters, but we’re all slowly dying in front of fucking computers. So sing, sing at the top of your voice. Oh, love without fear in your heart. Can you feel, feel like you still have a choice, if we all light up we can scare away the dark?”
