Lyrics: Kenny Chesney – American Kids
“Doublewide Quick Stop midnight T-top, Jack in her Cherry Coke town. Momma and daddy put their roots right here ‘cause this is where the car broke down. Yellow dog school bus kickin’ up red dust, pickin’ us up by a barbed wire fence, MTV on the RCA, no A/C in the vents.”
We are living in an age of unprecedented change. Convergence. Meeting. Confluence. Merging. Change is in the air. We’re dancing the Twist, “come on baby.” The Sun (Soul Essence/what animates me) and Moon (intuition/Free Will) will “merge” for a moment during their monthly ritual on September 24th @ 2:15AM (EST) at 1 Libra. The New Moon is the time we set our intentions for the coming month. One’s INTENT is the most powerful tool one can OWN (yep, we each have it in our tool-box). In Libra the focus is on “truth, justice and balance in all my relations.” FDR once said “there is a mysterious cycle in human events. To some generations much is given. Of other generations much is expected. This generation of Americans has a rendezvous with destiny.” Oh indeed we do!
Venus rules Libra and is Hostess of this New Moon. Venus (relationship/love and money) is at 23 Virgo (service /healing) in harmony with Vesta (the most important thing to me) at 23 Scorpio (Alchemy/transformation) and both out of sync with Eris at 22 Aries (me, myself and I). It’s called a Yod, the Finger of God or the Finger of Fate. No matter how you cut it, classify it or ponder it, the result is the same. It involves Choice and Chance. Nature operates in perfect balance. The Hunter and the Hunted. The Cheater and the Cheated. The Universe NEVER picks sides. Understand that the next 6 months are the beginning of a balancing-out period of a major-geo-political-shift. The Universe is in a constant state of flux, change and chaos. CHAOS ALWAYS precedes BIRTH! Conscious Evolution. Oh indeed!
Eris is fairly new in Human Consciousness. She stirs shit up. She is a Master Strategist (your personal Seal Team 6 to the rescue). She is Mars sister and is the Goddess of War. She acts out aggressively when she is not included. She despises and abhors hypocrisy and exclusivity. She’s the Goddess who threw the Golden Apple into the crowd that started the Trojan War. She is sneaky. She’s the Witch Maleficent in Snow White. A Master at setting traps to reveal human weaknesses. At her most positive she is a healer and protector of children. Astrology has not decided which sign she belongs with yet. Libra makes sense as she ALWAYS seeks BALANCE. She’s not shy about using nefarious methods though. Oh indeed!
Globally: ISIS is the Enemy. Right? There are cracks showing in the US Armor. American Spring. We’re due. ISIS is a product of the New Middle East Cold War. It’s not going away. How did this (ISIS) happen? Because state authorities cannot control their borders, provide services to their citizens nor form any kind of political Communities. The Arab Spring that started in December 2010 produced new alliances. Proxy Wars. Iran and Saudi Arabia primarily, but Turkey, Qatar, UAE and Egypt all support local groups of militia. Syria. Iraq. Lebanon. Yemen. Libya. ISIS has no friends. With no allies they do not fit any “known” groups. They have their own government, fund themselves and answer to no one! Independent. Beholden to NO ONE! I smell a trap! Oh indeed!
A couple of hours before the Autumn Equinox, Pluto, The Lord of All-The-Shit-I-Hide-From-Myself-And-Others, will station Direct in Capricorn (structure) on September 22nd, which also coincides with the Occupy Movement’s latest venture called #Flood Wall St. Pluto and Uranus are square dancing and bringing about the Death of the American Dream. Once Pluto enters Aquarius in 2024 we begin creating The Gaia Dream. It’s the Collective Co-Existing to sustain both ourselves and Mothership Earth. They’re called Transition Cities. This is good news. The Transition Movement is comprised of vibrant, grassroots community initiatives that seek to build community resilience in the face of such challenges as peak oil, climate change and the economic crisis. Are you interested in bringing new life to this planet and your own/family life? Resilience. Adaptability. Oh indeed! US Citizens click here / Other countries click here.
“Baptist church parkin’ lot, tryin’ not to get caught. Take her home and give her your jacket. Makin’ it to second base, but sayin’ you went all the way Monday afternoon at practice. Sister’s got a boyfriend daddy doesn’t like. Now he’s sittin’ out back, 3030 in his lap in the blue bug zapper light.”
Personally: Self-Mastery. The God-Spark that resides within each human is getting louder and louder. Trust yourself. Jupiter in Leo and Uranus in Aries are locked in a Fiery Dance activating Light Codes within human DNA that provide the courage, imagination and innovation needed to propel an individual to do their Greatest Work. Magnum Opus. Inspiration. Restlessness. Gumption. Guts. Glory. Libra seeks BALANCE. Inner balance. Inner peace. Relationships can get sideways in any one of the 33 shades of crazy if one is NOT paying attention to words, actions and INTENT. What are you doing? What did you mean to do? What are you saying? What did you mean to say? Please set Ego aside to speak “from the heart.” SLOW DOWN! Oh indeed!
Humans are Beings of perception, and the quality of our perception is determined by our attitude and point of view. Our attitude/POV is THE focal point for our attention because our attitude is what gives us direct insight into our thoughts, beliefs, and emotions in each moment. Many of our beliefs operate on the level of our subconscious (Pluto), therefore they are not always visible to us therefore our emotional state is not always obvious. Stay present! We are moving into a powerful time of the year. Oh indeed!
This New Moon vibrates to change. Identifying what is MOST important (Vesta) in relationships (Venus) without manipulation (Eris) is the goal. Expect to see miscommunications, disagreements and understand there is no right or wrong (that’s a belief). There is only change. It will be easy for folks to blinded by the Light of Truth. Make no assumptions and remember to put yourself in another’s shoes, SEE through their EYES! What do you SEE? Remember, anger occurs when something unknown becomes KNOWN. There’s a good chance that something that needed to said will be said. And then, sometimes what is UN-SPOKEN is much louder than words. If you need to say something, give some thought with a “cool head” before spouting off the first thing that comes to mind. MASTERY of SELF. Remaining calm during any storm brings “new” information to light that can guide us to safety. Dance in the rain? Running in the rain? Oh indeed!
We are all doing well, whether we realize it or not. Each Human’s journey is exactly what is needed RIGHT NOW to get us all over the hump. Here on the Mothership boundaries are being re-shaped personally, locally and globally. The Middle East! Complex ancient battles that few Westerners can grasp. Watch Egypt for clues. They participated in an attack with Qatar and Iran against Libya, a few weeks ago, and no one asked permission from the US. Uh-oh! We are all headed toward 2020. That’s the goal and the vision right now. Respect the “journey” others are taking right now, because in about 6 months (March 2015), we will be through this transition phase. Changing our attitude is not an event but a continuous process. If one can see what the Eye’s see and NOT what the Mind says, all is well! Balance.…….Welcome to The Transition!
“We were Jesus save me, blue jean baby, born in the USA. Trailer park truck stop, faded little map dots New York to LA. We were teenage dreamin,’ front seat leanin’ baby, come give me a kiss. Put me on the cover of the Rolling Stone uptown down home American kids. Growin’ up in little pink houses. Makin’ out on living room couches. Blowin’ that smoke on Saturday night a little messed up, but we’re all alright.”
