k14444341It is always amazing to me how things happening here on Earth so closely align with what takes place in the heavens. Of course, I look for it to do so, and we all know how much the outcome – or perceptual results – of a situation or experiment is influenced by the one seeking the answer, information or solution. Much like the scientist testing his theories, I find myself perennially wondering if I’m feeding the cosmic machine with my own expectations, hopes and dreams; fueling the fires of creation with my own creative desires.

vector-silhouette-people-who-dance-front-colored-background-46880741To some extent, I know that self-fulfilled prophecies hold true. I understand that each one of us sees the world from our own vantage point, with uniquely shaped eyes, carved from years of individual cause and effect. Experience, exposure and environment factor into the evolutionary equation of inheritance, genetics and DNA. party_silhouettes_vectors_58982And then, voila! Here we are, living and breathing our own particular, one-of-a-kind dance, dancing in a magnificently enormous ballroom with millions – no, billions – of other human beings. We dance in step and out-of-step with each other, sometimes happy and sometimes sad, mad or glad, but we continue dancing, as long as we have life and breath.

I have written many words over the last few years about the ongoing Pluto-Uranus square. It’s the hottest astrological news of the decade, and 21st Century, so far. The seven exact planetary squares occurring between June 2012 and March 2015 of these two slow-moving outer planets constellate a slow-moving, sweeping, transformational metamorphosis of the individual self, as well as the collective whole. silhouettes of party people dancingWe can see and feel it personally, as well as socially and globally. We are seeing and experiencing the indelible connection between self and other, self and society, self and government, self and world. We no longer exist solo, and no man, woman or child is an island, we are all interconnected. The Information Age and Internet rule. Real privacy is non-existent. We can no longer hide out, unless of course, we are truly lost. Even then, chances are, we will be found.

Screen-Shot-2011-12-02-at-9.37.52-PMAs a collective body, we humans morph and change together. We are powerfully affected by each other’s thoughts, actions, words and deeds. Even the rebels and revolutionaries, outlaws, idealists and isolationists cannot escape the tsunamic waves of awakening and change at work today in the cosmic seas of collective consciousness. Amidst all the chaos and polarity, perceptual divisions of race, class and wealth, we are One.

Thus, the ancient esoteric dictum: As above, so below. Onward Cosmic Traveler. Ride the Wave…

Aries (Mar. 20-Apr. 19) A very rare planetary configuration at the time of the Aquarius New Moon suggests this year could be one of the most pivotal years in human history.
