Happy New Moon and partial Solar Eclipse :)

“The cosmos is setting up an evolutionary impulse for us to take responsibility for ourselves, family, children, community, the feminine and most of all, for our Mother, the Earth.
These two nodes in the Cancer/Capricorn polarity are establishing new foundations for how we live here on Earth.
Since Cancer and Capricorn reflect the maturing processes of life, we are certainly in a time when humanity has to consciously evolve to a higher level of self-awareness if humans are going to continue to exist on Earth in a positive way..
Pluto in Capricorn has been unearthing the corruption of our patriarchal society since 2008. But even as the hypocrisy and corruption are exposed, what is no longer viable is still struggling to keep control…
But Pluto is like the lava streaming out of Kilauea. It is unstoppable, pure evolution. It is creating new earth.
We cannot go backwards. It’s the people who go forward who create the future.
Are you an artist, musician, dancer, storyteller? This is your time. It’s time to wrest our people’s imaginations away from mass media programing and get them to wake up their own imaginations.
…Everyone is engaging alone with machines. It’s time to change that.  It’s up to our artists to awaken people out of our collective trance….
As with all New Moons, it’s a time to plant seeds… These are special seeds of creativity and nurturing and emotional intelligence…
Our thoughts create our reality. Our change of heart will be shared on an energetic level, and that will create more power…
We humans are part of Gaia’s ecosystem. We really need to reclaim our place in the life cycle of Earth.
Then we’ll be honoring our Great Mother, our creative center and our cosmic purpose.”
