For centuries the Church brainwashed people to believe they were sinners waiting for punishment. Then science came along and convinced people to believe they are biological accidents. Psychology came along and pathologised mental and emotional states, dishing out labels and pills that keep people sick..
Yet older than all three, and still around waiting in the wings, is the wisdom tradition astrology, which not only teaches that we are cosmic starbeings on a journey of infinite, never-ending, discovery, it gives us the tools to navigate the energetic shifts and get the most out of life while we are here on planet earth, the ultimate mystery school of the outer Milky Way. Souls come from far off galaxies to take this ride.
Breaks my heart when i see FB posts about depression, anxiety, helplessness etc. There is another language we can use. There is a crucial connection between mind-body-emotion and spirit: It matters what we think, how we think – our thoughts feed our emotions and manifest in our bodies. That’s how the Church cut us off from the holy light in our souls – by believing we are the opposite. This paved the way for Science to reduce us to meaningless atoms. This opened the door for Psychology to analyse and dissect our minds, separating them out and making them feel very, very alone.
The military-industrial, capitalist machine does not want us to be aware of the heavenly cycles flowing through our souls, any more than the Church did.
As Sun moves into Libra, the Equinox point is a perfect moment to turn this around. Equinox offers shift. The Cosmos is always waiting for us to step into its embrace. This is nothing new, humans have had to struggle against the dominant culture to discover the truth for a long time. Difference now of course is there are so many more of us ready for it, we can find each other through the internet, and the stakes are much, much higher.
The healer is within.
