“…a wealth of information creates a poverty of attention…” – Herbert A. Simon
Effective Dates: February 8th-26th, 2017
There are those of us who are sitting back, sobbing about what has transpired in the world. We are feeling hopeless on this mad dash toward new forms of psychopathy. We have to keep this wheel going; we have no choice. There is a way out, though, there always is, and there is always a trail. You just need to pay attention to the patterns beyond the artificial noise…
Here is what this transit calls for: You must stand up to the illusions being thrown your way. You must fight through the attempts to subdue you, and channel an inner rage for righteousness for all humanity (hello Aquarius season). The propaganda is like soma, making us feel as though everything will go away if we just hide in our hovels and shutter the windows and shudder our bones. But it wont go away. Ignoring it will only make it worse. Distracting yourself will only hurt everyone else around you. This transit is begging for us to work together to figure out what is real and what is not. The more you ignore your obligation toward the rest of humanity – your role in the greater scheme of things – the more illusions you will need to build around yourself to keep the guilt at bay. This is not beneficial for anyone. Not yourself. Not the rest of humanity and the world.
You feel as though you need to clutch on to something (probably a material safety blanket) in order to make it through the rough times right now. What you are not seeing – what you can’t see because you are being pumped with disorienting noise– is that there is a major completion happening right now. When we are learning grand spiritual lessons, our world is usually not in any apparent harmony. The world looks sick or it looks broken, but what we must realize is that it has been consecrated. The world has become a fertile ground for anyone to plant seeds of intention. And if you sit back and allow all of the misinformation to leave you distracted and scared, you will lose the ability to see beyond the situation and find where you can actually make an impact. We have all faced diverse experiences that make us the unique individuals we are now. During this transit, those varying experiences will show us what kind of warrior for the greater whole we need to become.
You need to put yourself in the back seat for once. And yes, this includes your fears and your tears. You have the responsibility of action and of speaking out when you know something is harmful. You cannot sit back and allow institutions, tradition, or cultural norms to keep you from voicing what needs to be voice (Aquarius would never). With the focus of a laser, you must cut through the bullshit and shed light on situations where you can. We must all do this together. It’s time to come out of your safe space. The stars are calling for warriors and saints, especially with all of this Aries in the air. Little to zero sympathy will be had for those who cannot adjust to the new world that is coming our way. We have no space for dead weight when we are digging through the quicksand of information overload and propaganda. Speak out in situations where you need to. Put lies to rest in both the macro and micro sense. Don’t shy away from your calling, for your role is so very important for the whole (and there’s nothing more Aquarian than that).
