Dear Friend and Reader:
I’m taking a week off from a big article to focus my efforts on The Book of Your Life annual readings. Thank you to all the people who have pre-ordered.
I want to alert you to one vital issue developing in the news: the North Dakota governor has threatened to forcibly remove the Standing Rock protest camp, the one that’s there to block the Dakota Access Pipeline.
I suggest we take this threat seriously. I do not like the chart. It looks like a massacre. You’ve never heard me refer to a potential future event in this way.
I am not making a prediction. I am saying what I see in the chart, and understand is politically possible. And it’s something that we can take the power to prevent.
The single most important thing to do is to focus awareness on what’s happening — make sure that people know. Pay attention to the news. Listen for updates each day on our affiliate Democracy Now!.
This is a real standoff, and both corporate and public officials are angered that the movement has gone on this long, or become as big as it is.
This, despite the fact that it’s getting next to no coverage anywhere but places like Planet Waves, Democracy Now! and other ‘alternative’ news sources. I cover it extensively in the newest edition of Planet Waves FM.
There are several key features to the astrology of 2017, though we’re currently living with the most significant of them: the rare conjunction of slow-moving planets Uranus and Eris.
If you’re still feeling mystified by this, please take a few minutes and read up about it. This article from June is short and succinct; it’s called Uranus, Eris and the Riddle of the Internet.
The upshot of Uranus conjunct Eris is that all bets are off; everything is subject to change; we can no longer rely on past precedent. There is some liberation in this idea, and there’s obviously some challenge. How little can we depend on the past as a guide to the future?
I ask you: did you expect Donald Trump to be the president-elect right now? Did you think it highly unlikely, improbable or impossible? We can no longer count on the right thing happening, just because it’s the right thing.
This involves taking extra care to make our decisions carefully, and to stay in ongoing contact with feedback coming from your environment.
If you can do that, you not only mitigate the worst possible effects, you begin to tap into the truly unusual potential for self-development and corresponding cultural evolution that the Uranus-Eric conjunction represents.
Self-knowledge can no longer be considered dangerous, nor can freedom be considered something it’s appropriate to run from. The times we’re living in did not sneak up on us. The signs have been here all along. What we’re seeing manifest has been the topic of discussion week after week on every Planet Waves channel and many, many other places.
At this stage, nothing should surprise anyone.
Meanwhile, remember: Monday morning, at a minute past midnight, is when the State of North Dakota has threatened to move against the water protectors. Please, pay attention.
Catch you soon.
Moonshine Horoscope for Sagittarius New Moon #1128 | By Len Wallick
Aries (March 20-April 19) — It’s possible you will want to solve a mystery over the next several weeks. More likely you will need to accomplish an entirely different task: developing your discernment and applying it to problems in the world. To be clear on the distinction, envision yourself sorting and matching a pile of socks as opposed to taking the same amount of energy and time to search for a single lost stocking. — by Len Wallick.
Taurus (April 19-May 20) — Even the simplest partnerships consist of more than two parties. Every relationship — business, creative, romantic or other — takes on a life of its own. Often, collaborations go even further to produce something beyond the relationship. Assuming your affiliation with another has recently resulted in something or somebody special for both of you, now would be a good time to initiate discussions aimed at coming to agreements about how to nurture what you have mutually brought forth. — by Len Wallick.
Gemini (May 20-June 21) — Nearly everybody has had at least one occasion to understand how opposites do indeed attract. Just such an experience seems to be on your horizon. To help assure that any such encounter will be a positive experience on the whole, all you have to do is remember just one thing: two perfectly complementary personalities might not always be in perfect agreement. — by Len Wallick.
Cancer (June 21-July 22) — The talented and versatile performer Chris Rock once asserted that the best way to prepare for a night of improvisational stand-up comedy is to spend the entire day before “basically doing nothing.” You might want to take Mr. Rock’s advice to heart. Relax and recharge so as to thrive when it comes time to stand in the spotlight. — by Len Wallick.
Leo (July 22-Aug. 23) — There is likely something new in your life. It might be a big change. Or maybe you simply purchased some replacement underwear. No matter how apparently important or seemingly insignificant your own personal ‘new’ is, enjoy the feel for its own sake. The sooner you acquire a taste for the unfamiliar, the better you will be prepared for a newer than usual year. — by Len Wallick.
Virgo (Aug. 23-Sep. 22) — If your abode is not where your heart currently is, think on how that came about. If, on the other hand, being in your place of residence makes you feel whole and complete, remember what you did to make it so. In one sense or another, you will probably want to retrace your steps home soon. Start with conscious intent now and you will avoid getting lost. — by Len Wallick.
Libra (Sep. 22-Oct. 23) — If you want to finish this year with flying colors, simply remember the immortal words of Navy Admiral and computing pioneer Grace Hopper: “The most dangerous phrase in the language is, `We’ve always done it this way.'” If anything is keeping you from being as amazing as Admiral Hopper was, it’s probably a cherished habit that can now safely be jettisoned. — by Len Wallick.
Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 22) — Further your aptitude for both giving and receiving to improve your life. Focus on acts of assistance. Work on making it just as easy for you to ask for or offer practical help as it has been for you to accept or share spoken affirmations. If you can do just that, the desires you have been chasing just might surprise you by turning up unannounced. — by Len Wallick.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 22) — It may not have been easy, but it’s likely you have learned at least one lasting and valuable lesson from another person this year. Interestingly, it’s just as probable you will be somebody’s equally influential teacher next year. In order to prepare for your new and more responsible role as an instructor in the future, work on what would have made you a better student in the past. — by Len Wallick.
Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 20) — You should probably receive a college degree simply for living your life over the last eight years or so. Just as with a university education, everything you’ve experienced since late 2008 will probably boil down to one thing. What you now know better than before has less to do with what you were tested on, and more to do with what you were tested by. — by Len Wallick.
Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) — If you got through last month without doing anything to apologize for, give yourself a well-deserved pat on the back. If things did not go quite so smoothly, let it slide off your back. Either way, and so long as you apply all you have recently learned, you will now have every reason to believe that those who care about you will henceforth have your back as never before. — by Len Wallick.
Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20) — What you’ve lived through is not unknown. There is no question about that. What is subject to examination is how busy you’ve been, especially over the last decade and a half. Time to catch up. If you can, dig out some photos taken of you back in the 20th century. Tell those images about who you are now, and imagine what they would say in reply. — by Len Wallick.
