This month’s Astrolights is political and not pretty. As we begin the New Year, perhaps we should begin by becoming more aware of the harbingers of our worsening predicament. We have been avoiding looking at our ghost of Christmas past and he has gained full free rein. Marley might as well have been a banker and money changer (Saturn is Scorpio). This is an age old story of politics that perpetuates its own abundance through the naiveté and indolence of its constituency. We all need to wake up and become aware as Scrooge did.
This month is the cyclic conclusion to the Mayan calendar on December 21st. Much like the turn of the century, 1900, 2000, planetary alignments and other pinpointed change points, many people fearfully have the expectation that drastic changes will occur on that day. However, it’s historically been shown that all major changes occur gradually. Oh yes, there may be small triggers that people use to mark a beginning, but generally, large changes require large time frames.
