Hope and Possibility 2012 & Beyond

I was reading for someone recently who was asking about what to expect with 2012.

The following came through.

We are in a time of deep and abiding change and while it appears that we are fractured and broken at this time, this is only temporary. We are in a confluence of energies at this time that is a culmination of centuries of conflict and strife and while the old dies away, it may kick and scream in death throes.

We are moving towards a time of greater harmony and light. But we have to pass through the eye of the needle.  There will be a unifying event, which will show us beyond a doubt that we are one people, one planet, one humanity. This event will  be so alien to us it will both shock and awaken us and as a result our world and consciousness will be forever changed.

What will come out of this is a new form of governance -world wide that will be more inclusive and accepting. Old enemies will see each other in a new light and lay down their arms. Humanity will see itself as connected at long last.

We will have three hurdles in the coming years (2008-2024) of which we have experienced the first when the markets and business sectors faltered and fell. During this phase of time governments, business, banking and the structures we have grown up with will be altered in deep and transformative ways.

After the earthquake of 1989 in the  SF Bay Area, while reading in Colorado at an yearly event, I remember  many people being concerned that the predicted earth changes were upon us. Please understand that the earth is a evolving and conscious being and she is both wise and ancient.

She would never harm the people who reside here, but Pluto is the lord of death and transformation and there may be many who decide not to stay. Remember we are her ( the earths) heart and her emotional expression, so each of us has the opportunity to transform our deep emotional pain that Pluto will dredge up for us, so we can see it in the light of day. This is the gift of this time.

Historically the last time Pluto was in Capricorn was when this young nation was forming. Like then, freedom, liberty and  revolution will be apart of this transition and there may be energies that will impinge upon our liberties and freedom but then as now truth will win out. Pluto will have it no other way.

What Really Divides Us? An Opportunity!

You may not know this, but I am a daughter of the American revolution. My family and ancestors fought for freedom, freedom of religion, freedom from taxation without representation and we fought for our right to express ourselves freely and be happy.  Abagail Adams was a Smith and Martha Washington’s sister married a Bassett. Both are my family names.

You might be wondering why  am I writing about this odd bit of personal history when I usually write about healing and transformational change.

First, I want to share that Pluto is in Capricorn, many of you may know this but did you know that the  last time Pluto was in Capricorn ( that rules government and business) was during the founding of this country and the American revolution.

Like now, there were  basically 2 distinct party lines of thought, one for a centralized government ( Hamilton and Adams)  and the other for more states rights (Jefferson & Madison). Then like now these forces pulled at each other in bitter and divisive infights that nearly destroyed our  fledgling democracy.

What is so frustrating for me is that we are doing it all over again. I realize that people are reactionary and in reactive states much of the time but we have a opportunity to change this. To move from reaction to response!

Decades ago, when I taught as a substitute teacher even my kindergarteners knew how to cooperate and get along better than the factionalized wings of  political groups we see expousing  their truth on talk shows and in the halls of government. Why all the hate when what we need is cooperation.

So let”s take this opportunity and say no to  extremes, to the tea party movement  (who I know that my ancestors would rolling in their graves  to hear this name used this way ) and to the factionalism that they preach and that is eroding any political goodwill and hope we once possessed.

We have an opportunity to move to another level, to a higher octave of this Pluto in Capricorn energy that is so relevant right now. We can rise above this kind of  divisive politics.

We must remember our commonality.

This commonality is key. We are all human beings, first. We all suffer and wish to be happy. This is what links us all  together!

We can all practice more openness and compassion and reach out our hands to one another in kindness instead of anger. I am not saying that we have to deny that we are mad as hell about what is going on in the world  but we have to at least try to soften our hearts and temper our anger with intelligence and open the conversation beyond the sound of our own voice.

This is where we have gone wrong I’m afraid…. we are not talking to each other we’re just flinging shit at each other, which accomplishes nothing. As the political season ramps up ask yourself , can I hold the and instead of the or in my heart? Can both positions exist simultaneously? My hope is yes . So the dialogue can begin not just sound bites ( that the masses latch onto ) but real discussion.

So I want everyone to take a deep breath, to move out of reaction and into a place of equanimity because if we don’t start matters will only get worse. I do not want to lose this precious democracy.

Let’s embrace our diversity and find a new path to move forward on. Please, please, please.

PS

Pluto in Capricorn will strip down and expose all forms of corruption and abuse of power. It is the nature of Pluto to illuminate the shadow and Pluto will be in Capricorn  that rules the sector of business, government, banking and finance. we have already seen this. And we have a choice and opportunity at this time. Government and politics will change during this process. We can move towards a new wholism like never before and heal this realm where there has been so much  tit for tat for way too long.  Pluto is fierce and it is relentless but it wants truth above all things.
