Lyrics: Boston – Peace of Mind
“Now if you’re feelin’ kinda low ‘bout the dues you’ve been paying, future’s coming much too slow. And you want to run but somehow you just keep on stayin’. Can’t decide on which way to go, yeah, yeah, yeah. I understand about indecision, but I don’t care if I get behind. People livin’ in competition, all I want is to have my peace of mind.”
Saturn is the fuel for Neptune’s creation engine called imagination. Unformed becomes form.
Most problems can be solved if humans can accept their reality.
Bubbles burst. Humans love simple answers to complicated questions, instant gratification of wants and desires, and, validation and acceptance that “I’m okay, you’re okay.” Hopefully it comes tied up with a big bow and pretty paper. That’s Neptune. There are limits though. Form, structure, parameters, responsibility, accountability, boundaries and time. That’s Saturn. Humanity lost its Imagination and it has been replaced with adult apathy and cynicism. It’s the formless entity called “Nothing.”
When negativity has nothing to feed on, it destroys itself, making room for something new to grow.
Life’s game board is in motion and we are going into the “last roll of the dice” in the Saturn-Neptune Cycle. Something ended in 2006-07 in each person’s life. The landscape is ripe for rebuilding but it is going to require arduous effort. Five-hundred years ago history called it the Scientific Revolution. Today it’s called the Technology Revolution. From “Fast Boys” on Wall St. to North Korea’s Cyber-Army, change is afoot. The new battlefield is Cyber-Space.
When two or more planets move together through the sky, they form an astronomical configuration called a synod (from the Greek, synodos, which means “a traveling together”). The longer the synodic cycle the more powerful their vibration. Uranus and Pluto’s synodic cycle is 125 years. Once in a lifetime!
Saturn and Neptune have a 37-year synodic cycle. Twice in a lifetime! They always bring a reality-check and the bill is soon coming due. They can provide a “magic carpet ride” or be a total “buzz-kill.” It cuts both ways. No one gets a “Hall Pass.”
Uranus and Pluto have just finished squaring off with one another seven times since 2012 “talkin’ about my Evolution.” Since 2008 the tension revealed the cracks in the walls of our privacy, our financial institutions, our relationships, our habits, our government, our leaders, institutions and our “oneness.”
Globally, debt sits at (USD) $59 trillion. The “power-shift” has begun from the West to the East. It will become self-evident in 2017. The US holds just a hair over 29% of all debt. Japan is second with 19.9% and China sits in 3rd place with 6.3%. The US holds more debt than any other country in the world. Years of built-up grievances and no avenue of recourse drive people to extremes. If you want to know what the 5 Phases of the Bubble Economy (Neptune) are, click here.
Every moment in time has a chart. The GOP’s astrological chart is imploding. Pluto is taking his last pass on their IC. Indeed, Donald Trump is the living nightmare of the GOP. It would appear that Mommy and Daddy are having “knock-down-drag-out-fight” in full view of the children. America is becoming more tolerant, except white Republicans in the South.
Nixon’s Southern Strategy is no longer the playbook gentlemen. The Country Club Elite and the Poor White Trash don’t socialize together except on Election Day. The Democrats are no different. By not calling out the GOP for their blatant bigotry, their inaction spurred the demonization of “others.” It will probably take 2 more election cycles for the “new tolerance” to be the “norm and not the exception.” 2024!
Everyone feels betrayed. Here is where the “People” have an opportunity to “speak up.” 2016 is an election year. Every 37 years, humanity makes a Course Correction. We’re in year 26 right now. We’re in the “home-stretch” now! We begin a brand new cycle in 2025.
Here in the US, War is big business. The US spends $9 million/day since we started engaging ISIS last year. Who profits the most from the carnage? The US is the #1 weapons manufacturer globally and Saudi Arabia is our largest customer. Drones. Ammunition. Contract Warriors. Global Private Security firms. Gun Control. Military Contractor Lobbyists. The “supply chain.” Follow the money. Six US companies make up the top 10 most profitable “War” manufacturers globally. What about War Crimes? Who pays for that?
“Now you’re climbin’ to the top of the company ladder, hope it doesn’t take too long. Can’t you see there’ll come a day when it won’t matter, come a day when you’ll be gone. I understand about indecision, but I don’t care if I get behind. People livin’ in competition, all I want is to have my peace of mind. Take a look ahead, take a look ahead, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah.”
Here in the US we treat drug addicts differently than we treat those with socially acceptable addictions. Why do we treat a drug addict differently than we treat diabetic who won’t stop eating sugar? Or a person who has had a heart attack but won’t exercise, eat healthy and take care of themselves. Socially acceptable addiction! Time to redefine “socially acceptable.”
Dis-Ease is profitable for pharmaceutical companies. It also helps our economy. Abilify is the top-selling drug in the US and it’s an “anti-psychotic” used in conjunction with other anti-depressants. Drug companies ‘dumb-it-down’ in TV commercials for easier acceptance and consumption. They claim that depression is caused by a lack of serotonin.
The US and New Zealand are the only two countries that allow Big Pharma to advertise drugs to consumers via mass media. Mental Health. Stigmas. Fantasy. Projection. Addiction (sex, money, drugs, alcohol, food, pain, social media, religion, spirituality, attention, gambling, the internet, whatever presses the pleasure button in your brain). What is your addiction of choice?
In the not-to-distant-future humans will eradicate disease with genetic modification to embryos. Big Pharma is working diligently to be on the cutting edge of genetic re-design. DNA is the individual’s OS (operating system). Who owns our medical records and DNA? You might be surprised at the answer! It’s called “financial engineering.” Google that!
Welcome to The Aftermath!
Emotional self-reliance makes for easier self-regulation. The space between happy and sad is Peace. Unconscious becomes Conscious. Reality meets illusion. Time is Eternal and we are each “one of the many of The Whole.”
Saturn wants to give form to Neptune’s vision.
Structure for the Soul’s lesson!
The current cycle started in 1989 @ 10-11 Capricorn (New Moon phase). If you have personal planets 5-15 degrees of Capricorn, Cancer, Libra, Aries, Gemini or Leo, you understand that the “system” always wins, but take courage and stand up against big business, because sometimes the “little” guy wins. Sometimes those we trust the most will disappoint us. Sometimes those we love the most betray us. Have you ever betrayed someone you love? How many have you left disappointed? It cuts both ways!
First Quarter Square –1998-99 @ 29 Aries/Capricorn – 4 Taurus/Aquarius (opening square). If there is no Hierarchy why do we believe in a “Higher Power?” What if the “Higher Power” resides within? If Mary is the “Mother of god,” why isn’t she called “God, the Mother?” What if all feminine imagery was erased from the bible because the “creator” was really an errant child of Mother Wisdom, who is the true creator? What if She wanted Him to be ignorant of his own Mother? Orthodox Christians preach about the “jealous god.” If there is only one god, who is there to be jealous of? Stretch your imagination with one question, “why not?”
The opposition occurred in 2006-2007 @ 17-21 Leo/Aquarius (Full Moon phase). Experience brings wisdom. Wisdom gives us discernment. Something ended. A way of life, a belief, a myth. This brought a reality-check to many. It’s not a negative, but rather an option that was never considered. Go through a natural disaster and you are always prepared. Lose a parent or loved one and we learn about the reality of death. No one gets out of here alive and there are no luggage racks on hearses.
Last Quarter Phase – 2015-2016 @ 7-12 Sagittarius/Pisces. Time to re-write the story, song or poem we have titled “my life.” Remember, it cuts both ways. We’re breaking new ground here. Indulging judgement of others is nothing more than childish insecurity. No one likes being made fun of or made to feel inferior. We never know when we may need the help of those we condemned. Be sensitive and conscious of choices made. Sincerity, respect for self and others goes a long way in building “good relations.” If your boundary is crossed, then speak up. Once you’ve expressed yourself, let it go. Above all, never lose your sense of humor! Belly laughs are the best!
New Cycle initiates in 2025-2026 @ 0 Aries. Can humans really be godlike?

Waking up from the fantasy. Be true to self. Richard Tarnas (Cosmos and Psyche) calls Saturn/Neptune meetings “the most psychologically and spiritually demanding of times as well as the most likely to call forth genuine nobility of spirit and profundity of vision.” Pay attention to those we demonize (that’s our projections). It’s time to reclaim our own self-authority (instead of following the crowd blindly). Seeing reality (instead of what we wish) and creating a workable plan for self-sustainability. Drop the labels, drink plenty of water and remember, there is NO DESTINATION, there is only the trip of a lifetime! It’s a never-ending story. Where did you think you were going?
“Now everybody’s got advice they just keep on givin’. Doesn’t mean too much to me. Lots of people out to make-believe they’re livin’. Can’t decide who they should be. I understand about indecision, but I don’t care if I get behind. People livin’ in competition, all I want is to have my peace of mind. Take a look ahead, take a look ahead. Look ahead.”
All is well! 🙂
