As disturbing as it has been to see the speed with which the police transformed from the role of protectors to militarized aggressors, dressed and armed ready for war, as sad as it has been to realize how deep racism and discrimination still is.

For the first time in a decade, we have 5 planets retrograde at the same time. You might be reading a lot about how this time is all about pausing and not being able to get much done, but actually, from a Soul perspective, this is going to be a hugely productive time.
Lots of planets and points are grouped together in the skies right now, so it's one of those special days when a lot of people at once will be going through their own unique healing/aha/breakthrough/shifting moments.
It feels like so much energy is going into wondering what is going to happen, that we seem to be missing the fact that ‘something’ is happening right now! So many of us are waiting for ‘the big event’, placing our lives on hold until we get the official program as to what’s happening next, meanwhile show after show is playing at the Earth Theatre giving us previews and new movies galore that we can choose right now.
Once upon a time there was a man called Jack. Jack was a wonderful man with an amazing golden light inside him. He couldn't see that golden light nor did he know it was within him, but he knew it existed because he could feel it calling him. He knew it contained all the secrets he needed to know about who he really was, and why he was really here. It contained the key that would unlock the door to all that his heart desired, and all that his soul dreamed of. He knew that there was more to life than the reality he saw around him.
Imagine a community of ants hidden under a covering in the corner of a house. They have been told that this corner is the world. Every day the ants go about their business collecting food, securing their shelter and keeping their families warm. Some of the ants are content with their lives, happy to have what they have. Others feel quite frustrated but don’t think they can do much about it, after all there is only so much space they can work with. A few ants have big aspirations for their lives and dream of greater things.
The energies since the weekend have been all over the place! Frazzled, disjointed, communication mishaps going haywire (more than the usual Mercury direct stuff), not being able to think straight and even Neptune (planet of imagination, creativity, illusion and sometimes delusion) going direct on Thursday doesn't explain the general 'plugged into an electric socket' feeling.
The big news on the horizon right now for both the scientifically and spiritually minded folks is the Sun’s once-every-11-years magnetic pole shift. "It looks like we're no more than three to four months away from a complete field reversal," said solar physicist Todd Hoeksema of Stanford University in a statement last week.
