Wind Of Change

Published: Mon, 01/10/22

On December 30th, Tim and I talked about the importance of January in connection to the Roman God Janus, the God of doorways and new beginnings. If you did not already receive that email, you can find it here.

Following up on the significance of the current month, it is important to mention that this particular time of the year, is encouraging us (if not pushing us!) even more towards significant (if not drastic!)"new beginnings". Capricorn is the planet of foundational changes. This means that we can essentially aim for major changes in our life, not just minor ones.  Should we wish to re-arrange our life at a systemic level, the planets are on our side.

Venus just yesterday, began a new 18-month cycle while conjunct Sun in Capricorn.  Venus is associated with our heart chakra, our values, what we truly hold dear to our heart, what we are willing to really work for.  The Sun is associated with our crown chakra, clear vision, white light, the realm of infinite possibilities.

So, you can think of this event as a rebirth of our value system.  Should we wish to look at our values, re-evaluate what needs to be re-evaluated and systemically change anything that needs to be addressed, we have infinite possibilities awaiting ahead of us.

This process may not be necessarily be simple and it may seem as if it could take a long time (especially since Venus is retrograde) but we have at least until the end of January (January 29th) when Venus goes direct.

You might say, so what? Who cares about the planets? This is real life, down here, day in day out.  And you might be correct.  However, Tim and I have found that the ancient Stoics were right on when they said:

The Fates guide the person who accepts them and
hinder the person who resists them. -Cleanthes

Until next time...  here is a great song about the wind of change that' was in the air during the end of the cold war. Scorpions - Wind of Change

By the way, Tim had the pleasure of meeting the whole band (Scorpions) on a cold winter night at the Alden Hotel on St Pete Beach, FL  Around 3:00 a.m. they decided to celebrate at a family hotel. Tim was called to the scene because they were refusing to leave. After having a pleasant conversation with Tim and after calling him numerous "adjectives", they decided that it was in their best interest not to spend any more quality time with him. So they chose to leave and take their party to another hotel. They left with standing ovations from the other guests who were trying to sleep.

Much much love from both of us!

Na’maste Kala! (Which in Greek means, may we all be well!)
