Lyrics: John Mayer – Waiting On The World to Change
“Me and all my friends we’re all misunderstood. They say we stand for nothing and there’s no way we ever could. Now we see everything that’s going wrong with the world and those who lead it. We just feel like we don’t have the means to rise above and beat it. So we keep waiting, waiting on the world to change. We keep on waiting, waiting on the world to change.”
Caught somewhere between “beatin’ on the walls on heartache” and “I just want peace” everyone is aware of how quickly life is evolving, twisting, turning, changing, contorting and shifting. The Full Moon @ 20 Capricorn occurs on July 12th at 7:25am EST. Look at the “life miles” traveled since the beginning of 2014 when we celebrated the New Moon in Capricorn on January 1st. A Full Moon always brings an adjustment, a change in perspective. Self-Mastery is Capricorn’s top priority. Control. Moral fortitude. Authority. Government. Boundaries. Corporations. Structure. We’re halfway through 2014.
Beliefs create boundaries. And the choices we make determine the length of the road ahead in fulfilling our purpose during our short stay here on Earth. Saturn rules Capricorn so he is host of the Full Moon Event. Saturn is time, responsibility, generations and the male dominated hierarchy, aka Daddy. He’s a Teacher and a Task-Master. You reap what you sow, says Saturn. He’s in Scorpio, the sign of regeneration, transformation, secrets, sex, taboo and intensity. Oh my! It’s called “flow-motion.” He’s at a quirky angle called a Yod with Uranus in Aries. Frustration.
It has been a bumpy few years compliments of Uranus squaring Pluto. Collectively we have arrived at the intersection of space, history and humanity. The question is “where is the line between personal freedom versus government control?” Creation is unfolding! How do you feel about working with the “enemy?” Unthinkable, right? Well, I guess it depends on one’s definition of “enemy.” The “enemy” lurks within and without. Lasting well into 2016 and beyond the Universe is testing each of us as we juggle the “hard right” and the “easy wrong” choices. A machine will always take the path of least resistance. We’ll be clarifying this for at least the next ten years.
“It’s hard to beat the system when we’re standing at a distance. So we keep waiting, waiting on the world to change. Now if we had the power to bring our neighbors home from war they would have never missed a Christmas. No more ribbons on their door and when you trust your television what you get is what you got. Cause when they own the information, oh they can bend it all they want.”
Altogether now, can we say “American Spring?” The 99% and the 1% need one another. They just don’t realize it yet. Come November, the message will begin to set in. Hobby Lobby. While many on the left AND right are distressed about the recent Supreme Court decision, this is one of the best things that could have ever happened in America. We are about to embark on an incredible journey of defining “religion.” Can we say Christian Sharia law? This is a great big ole’ can of worms! What’s the difference between a Muslim and a Christian? Our current cronyism is not the property of one political party or the other. Ahhhhh……
Mars (action) Vesta (what’s sacred to me) Ceres (abundance in Nature) and the North Node (Soul Compass) at 23/24 Libra are squaring the Full Moon in Capricorn, while opposing Eris (relationship equity) at 23 Aries. If you were born between 1945 and 1950 you will feel this quite strongly. Your Sedna is at 22/23 Aries. You can’t always get what you want, but you will get what you need. The problem is that what you “want” and what you “need” are at cultural odds. Consider yourselves the “pioneers” for the rest of us as you will go first in making the “hard right choice.” Have you figured out how to die consciously? That’s going to be a focus in ten years. There are two things in life you cannot cheat in life. Death and Mother Nature.
We are setting the tone for the next generation and setting an example for the next 7 generations. Guess what? Religious choices made 200 years ago are why we’re fighting wars today. In the next 2 weeks a Boomer is going to be made an example for the rest of us. Pay attention! Every Economist in the world tells us the same thing. No society can sustain the kind of rising inequality we are witnessing in the Western World today. There is no example in human history where wealth accumulated like this didn’t cause a change, an uprising which upends the cultural norm. Revolution. Evolution. Deconstruction.
Economics 101: if wages go up, employment must go down. That’s the old Model. The new Model is called Middle Out Economics, which rejects the old misconception that an economy is a perfectly efficient, mechanistic system and embraces the much more accurate idea of an economy as a complex eco-system made up of real people who are dependent on one another. The fundamental law of capitalism must be: If workers have more money, businesses have more customers, which makes the middle-class consumers, not rich businesspeople but the true job creators. Which means a thriving middle class is the source of prosperity, not a consequence of it. The middle class creates rich people, not the other way around. See?
“That’s why we’re waiting, waiting on the world to change. We keep on waiting, waiting on the world to change. It’s not that we don’t care, we just know that the fight ain’t fair. So we keep on waiting, waiting on the world to change.”
29 Degrees. The Anaretic Degree (where all knowledge gained from a sign resides, lessons learned). Jupiter at 29 Cancer. Mercury at 29 Gemini. White Moon Selene at 29 Sagittarius. A Divine Messenger reveals all your Cup of Wisdom can hold. This is “growing up.” For some it will be a neon flashing billboard, while for another it might be a white feather. Signs can be subtle too! Whatever the sign, it’s a perfectly-one-of-a-kind-message-created-just-for-you. Forgiveness. Saying good-bye doesn’t mean forever. Air. Fire. Water. Breathing steam. Purified. Baptized. Redemption. Grace. Loving from the heart. Choices made over the next two weeks bring consequences in October and November. Honor Self. Honor Other. “You are not my enemy when we have a common goal.”
Personally: Transition. Uncertainty. Movement. Chaos. Uncharted territory. Human and humane. Clarity. Calm. New directions. New pathways. Initiate. Ignite. All the “inner work” completed over the past 9 months externalizes. Choices made this month will come to fruition in October/November. Fast-paced and action packed. Quick, fast and in a hurry (some days). Life owes no one anything. From Unthinkable to Possible!
Four steps to changing behavioral patterns:
1) Unconscious Incompetence: You are not aware that you have a limiting behavior.
2) Conscious Incompetence: You become aware of the behavior, but are unable to change.
3) Conscious Competence: You catch the behavior and change. At first you are aware of it after you do it but with conscious practice, the response time decreases until you can stop yourself before you act-out the old behavior and substitute the new behavior.
4) Unconscious Competence: You are using the new behavior without thinking about it.
Everything becomes a blessing when one accepts and acknowledges what is occurring in life. If one believes that life owes them something then there’s a better than average chance they shall continue to struggle. Indoctrinated into a Culture that teaches children to “want stuff” and to become a consumer without giving something back is a recipe for failure for the culture. “Let them eat cake.” We were taught to “want” what we “want.” Ain’t that something? Think for yourself. Think about what actions you take as you take them. What will be the consequences? Speak for yourself. Question everything. Accept that you have more in common with your enemy than you think. Find those you need in your Community and who need you in return. Welcome to the 2014 Fall Eclipse Season. Game on! Unthinkable to Possible!
“And we’re still waiting, waiting on the world to change. We keep on waiting, waiting on the world to change. One day our generation is gonna’ rule the population. So we keep on waiting, waiting on the world to change. We keep on waiting, waiting on the world to change.”
