This new moon is an exciting one. As the Stars energies goes, this new moon offers great opportunities for connectedness and to let go of needless pressure. Why do we get hooked into needless pressure? On its own that is an issue to ponder on? Could it be a sign of insecurity, of self “centerness”, of lack of trust in the mayor scheme of things? What is certain is that needless pressure is useless and we all would be letting go of it, and as said, this new moon offers such an opportunity.
It is a time were the hard work done in the past will find a way out showing us some results and joy is at the reach of our hand.
At time for simplifying, finding balance and release!
The world is going through a high time of change in every aspect. We may complain about the economy, see the more or less violent changes taking place in many North African and Middle East Muslim countries. Wonder if mayor retaliation will come form Bin Laden's death. Be aware of the natural disasters due to earth quakes, floods, climate change, etc. etc.
But, at the same time, there are larger and more organized groups working for a change of consciousness regarding all this issues and more. That in itself is assuring and a good sign of the things to come. For, regardless of how bad things may be perceived, there is always an opportunity for choice and change.
Few may really have the power to make significant in a major scale. All of us have the capacity to make a change in ourselves, and that is a key element, for meaningful changes happen when a vast amount of individual change has taken place and is directed to a common goal. In many areas this is happening. People, individuals are working on changing themselves before attempting to “fix the world” and by doing so, they are fixing it.
For sure there will always be a group of people that are not capable of envisioning a different perspective. Those that can not imagine a personal evolution. Maybe because they are just to happy and content with what they are. Some go to the extreme of trying to impose on other their stagnant and bitter being. Think of a Neighbour that hates music and people having fun. He phones up to ask for the party to cease because: “my children have to go to school” , even though the music and party is within the legal noise level and hours for it. After asking for this favour, he carries on and says: “if not I am calling the police” (again).
So, in summary, you do as I see fit and do my a favour as if it was an order or I will try and enforce on you dire consequences even if they are unfair and out of order. Seems that when characters like this get to have power we come across a dictatorship.
What to do then? No point in trying to change a person that is not willing to acknowledge the perspective of others. Who's sense of collective begins and ends with himself. We may only deal with the situation as it affects our capacity to enjoy life and share collectively by not giving energy to the wrong and strengthening our capacity to send love and wisdom to the poor soul that is trapped under such selfish personality.
At the end, dictators fall when they are isolated from the rest of the world and the liberalization movement comes from inside. Just as happens to be with individuals. They end up isolated from the community by their own doing and are left to wonder: “why is the world so wrong and I am the only one so right?”. Probably only then will soul have a chance to be heard and the change may start.
Luckily this new moon in Taurus offers us all the opportunity to enjoy, simplify and get rid of needless pressures, regardless if they come from our past, our fearful anticipation of a dire future, or from a bitter neighbour.
So, trust and give. Keep it simple, get in touch with yourself, think collectively, and prepare yourself for the surprises life can offer you, specially under the influence of the growing glow of this new moon that is starting to peek over the horizon.
PS There is a Festival in the village this week end. The "Poor Soul" is moving out of the village for a few days. He can not join in the joy of others. Already, by his own doing, isolation is happening. Karma at work. How efficient.
