Lyrics: Aretha Franklin – Think
“You better think (think) think about what you’re trying to do to me. Yeah, think (think, think), let your mind go, let yourself be free. Let’s go back, let’s go back, let’s go way on way back when I didn’t even know you, you couldn’t have been too much more than ten, (just a child). I ain’t no psychiatrist, I ain’t no doctor with degrees. It don’t take too much high IQ’s to see what you’re doing to me.”
The Movement has begun. Cross the Bridge. “Where am I,” you ask? Right HERE, to be sure. Settle down. All is well. It may not appear that way if one does not see with their Inner Eyes. Take a deep breath. Exhale slowly. Better? Happy Holidays. Merry Christmas. Happy Hanukkah. Happy Kwanzaa. Take your pick. Home for the Holidays! Enjoy the Season, whatever you are celebrating. Allow healing to happen. Tension. Relax. Step back. Humanity is growing up! Santa’s Solstice.
December 21st Uranus stations direct @ 4:15PM EST, the Sun enters Capricorn @ 6:03PM EST and the monthly ritual of blending and merging Intent of the New Moon @ 0 Capricorn follows at 8:36PM EST. Can we say “Shazzam?” This is the 3rd New Moon @ 0 degrees. October 23rd and November 22nd brought each of us a chance to “purge and process” old beliefs and open new doors. Saturn rules Capricorn. He’s coming up to the surface after a long 2.5 year deep Scorpio Dive. Next stop, the beachhead in Sagittarius. The Collective Release. It will take 9 more months to get through The Collective Release. Saturn is “TIME” and Capricorn is “authority, hierarchy, structure, government and construction.” Rocket-powered sleighs are optional.
January 1, 2014 started with a New Moon @ 10 Capricorn. Look how many miles we have traveled this year (mentally, emotionally, physically and spiritually). Accepting reality is the first step to self-acceptance. Self-acceptance is the first step to self-forgiveness. “Santa Claus is coming to town.” Will Santa be making an appearance in your life? Capricorn (structure/authority) is the House of Daddy. Opposite is Cancer (home/family) the House of Mommy. The absence of evidence is NOT evidence of absence. Happiness is “wanting” what “we have!” Be thankful and grateful for ALL experiences. Witnessing His-story become “Our-story.” 2020 is the goal!
“Oh freedom (freedom), freedom (freedom), freedom, yeah freedom. Freedom (freedom), freedom (freedom), freedom, ooh freedom. There ain’t nothing you could ask I could answer you but I won’t (I won’t). I was gonna change, but I’m not, if you keep doing things I don’t.”
Do you remember when you found out the “truth” about Santa? How did you react? What was your response? Can you even remember? On some level, whether we remember or not, there was betrayal. Why do we tell children about Santa? Santa always brings “presence” when he arrives. December 22nd Asteroid Santa (1288) jumps down the chimney at the Deep End of the October Solar Eclipse @ 0 Scorpio. Will you leave “cookies and milk?” If you’re in a “Weed State” leave brownies. Uranus and Pluto have created nervous tension. Unease. Seeds sprouting from 1966-67. “I can’t breathe” and “don’t shoot hands up.” Now we KNOW why Americans are beheaded wearing orange. How would life be different if we hadn’t known about Santa? The Torture Report! #ALL LIVES MATTER!
Asteroid Santa (1288) and Neptune will be sprinkling plenty of “magic dust” with visions of candy canes dancing in their dreams. Think “Office Christmas Party.” Christmas mourning. What is your Christmas Ritual? How much joy does it bring into your life? Santa (1288) will catch up to Saturn next Halloween, when he re-enters 0 Scorpio after a 3-month Rx. No tricks, just treats! Something is initiated between the Capricorn New Moon and Christmas Day. Birthing Christmas “Spirit!” Be patient.
Uranus in Aries is squaring Pluto in Capricorn. 12 degrees. If we live long enough we experience them aspecting one another “twice in a lifetime.” It’s time to start building what was envisioned in the turbulent 60’s with Flower Power. TRUST YOURSELF, above all. Listen ONLY to yourself, you know better than anyone what’s best for yourself. Bearing fruit. Bipartisanship. Stewardship. Mama Gaia. The Mother Ship. Earth. Miracles. Serendipity. Synchronicity. Letting go isn’t the end of the world, it’s the beginning of a brand new life. Everything takes TIME.
“You better think (think) think about what you’re trying to do to me. Yeah, think (think, think), let your mind go, let yourself be free. People walking around everyday, playing games, taking scores, trying to make other people lose their minds. Well be careful, you’re gonna lose yours.”
The faster technology grows, exponentially, the fewer freedoms we have. That’s part of the trade-off. Ask good questions, then wait for the answer. Whatever is being observed, see “it” for what “it” is. If life takes “it” from you it gives something in return. Take time to rest. That’s important. Above all, forgive yourself. That’s the best gift we could offer Self. Experience always brings wisdom. Wisdom brings discernment. Fate will hand each of us a set of blueprints during the New Moon. It’s time to start balancing. Check Self for prejudice, judgment and, any and all “ism’s.” Where did they come from? Who do you celebrate the holiday with? The answer will appear, as if by Santa Magic. Rocket-powered sleighs are optional.
Saturn is preparing to enter Sagittarius on the 23rd and at 29 Scorpio Saturn is tidying up and preparing for the emotional healing due over the next 9 months. All childhood emotional betrayal is up for review. No one is really alone. In Sagittarius Saturn will raise the bar of honesty. High Ethics required. Organized religion. Military. How easy is it really to admit “I made a mistake?” Dogma and freedom. Immigration in the Land of Immigrants. Be fearless in opening the Mind. Courage comes from the Heart, not the Mind. Over the next 6 months, think of this as the “preview of coming attractions” for the next 2.5 years. Justice is Blind!
Solstice – While it has no astrological significance it does provide a “snapshot” of what to expect until the next change of season at the Spring Equinox and Solar Eclipse @ 29 Pisces on March 20, 2015. With the Sun (Soul Essence or the stuff that animates me), Mercury (communication, thinking, seeing, hearing, anything that moves including money, travel and how I pray), Vesta (the most important thing in the world to me), Pluto (transmogrify) and Venus (my relationship with money and my partner aka my other Self) scrunched up between 0-14 degrees Capricorn the next 3 months will find each of us very busy and life as we know it is “under construction.” Saturn rules Capricorn. Step-by-step! It’s “Life” for the long-haul.
However uncomfortable uncertainty might make us feel, it is there for a reason, and it is usually to show us a lesson, to give us direction and the possibility to find and express free will. What is the dominant theme in your life right now? If Life is going well, keep going, just TRUST YOURSELF. When something is not meant to happen, everything relating to it will appear as an obstacle. Whether we know what we want to do with our lives or not, everyone has different ideas or projects in mind. Thoughts and ideas develop in order to see them through. Above all, TRUST YOURSELF!
“Yeah, think (think) think about what you’re trying to do to me. Yeah, think (think, think), let your mind go, let yourself be free. You need me (need me) and I need you (don’t you know). Without each other there ain’t nothing we can do. Oh freedom (freedom), freedom (freedom), freedom, yeah freedom. Freedom (freedom), freedom (freedom), freedom, ooh freedom.”
Expect the unexpected. Expect to be inspired. Expect to work hard. Take emotional responsibility for Self. There will probably need to be a sacrifice or two made over the next 3 months. Companies have a Mission Statement, but tell me “what is your Mission Statement?” The Moon is at 28 Sagittarius, so expect a Revelation or “clear illumination” at the least. The “road ahead” is wide-open. Many will be awakened to a simple truth over the next few months. How many privileges have to be given up? Time to leap past “my” own Shadow!
Uranus Direct – Can we say “Light Code Activation?” Uranus in Aries. Living in uncertainty! Expect an unexpected surprise over the Christmas Holiday! Being totally honest with “myself” is not comfortable or easy. Look at what we’ve been during our lives, participated in, those we have hurt along the way, the amount of selfishness we’ve displayed. We think we have hid it from others since we were in denial about it or thought we were clever in how we think we got away with it. Eventually it all comes back around and “I see me clearly.”
Uranus shows us how “I am true to myself.” A thousand compromises and a million rationalizations later, we still come back to the truth, “I am responsible for me and my actions.” The bottom line is that in order to get on with “my” life, “I” need to get lined up with “me.” Many think they have to get lined up with God, the Universe, or some other abstract concept, just “get in line with Self” and it’s amazing how quickly things change. It’s the Trip of a Lifetime, yet it is all based on one decision. “I am ready for the Truth.” Remember, everyone dies, but not everyone lives!
*Anything that annoys you is teaching patience.
*Anyone who abandons you is teaching you how to stand on your own two feet.
*Anything that angers you is teaching you forgiveness and compassion.
*Anything that has power over you is teaching you how to take your power back.
*Anything you hate is teaching you unconditional love.
*Anything you fear is teaching you courage to overcome it.
*Anything you can’t control is teaching you how to let go. ~Lilly Notes
From my heart to you and yours may you be blessed beyond measure during the Holiday/Christmas season, and thank you for allowing me into your life. Take your time. Take chances. Believe in YOUR POWER. Believe in possibility. Do something creative every day. Do what makes your Heart SING! Inspire others and above all, INSPIRE YOURSELF! Merry Ho-Ho! Is that you Santa?
“You better think (think) think about what you’re trying to do to me. Yeah, think (think, think), let your mind go, let yourself be free. You need me (need me) and I need you (don’t you know). Without each other there ain’t nothing we can do. (Think about – ah me, think about – ah me, Think about – ah me, think about it). You had better stop and think before you think, think!”
