“The media’s the most powerful entity on earth. They have the power to make the innocent guilty and to make the guilty innocent, and that’s power. Because they control the minds of the masses. The press is so powerful in its image-making role, it can make the criminal look like he’s a the victim and make the victim look like he’s the criminal. This is the press, an irresponsible press. It will make the criminal look like he’s the victim and make the victim look like he’s the criminal. If you aren’t careful, the newspapers will have you hating the people who are being oppressed and loving the people who are doing the oppressing.” ~ Malcom X

Happy Full Moon!

Full Moon

“Full Moon energies bring what’s been hidden from our ego consciousness to light.
As we re-engage in the world, this Scorpio Full Moon might reflect back to us what we really yearn for – those things in life that bring us peace and joy and satisfaction.
While this watery Full Moon brings up issues of letting go of what no longer serves life, it also has a powerful hit from Neptune in Pisces, opening us to compassion, not only for all people suffering during this pandemic, but also for ourselves.
Neptune also gives us the tool of the creative imagination to help us through this death and rebirth of our culture.
As we release the emotional wounds that keep us repeating our insanity, we need to fill those spaces with possibilities. And that’s what Neptune can do for us.
Living in our active imaginations can change our habits quicker than anything else.
Since Mercury is conjunct the Taurus Sun, we have the ability to see and communicate what is broken in our society, as well as what expectations we need to let go of in trying to return to ‘normal’.
Instead, we can be looking for opportunities to bring something into play that people need.
Something many of us have spent our lifetimes discovering and learning. Now is the time for us to lead the way into a better future…”
~Cathy Pagano, excerpt from Mystic Mamma

“Today I’m flying low and I’m not saying a word I’m letting all the voodoos of ambition sleep. The world goes on as it must, the bees in the garden rumbling a little, the fish leaping, the gnats getting eaten. And so forth. But I’m taking the day off. Quiet as a feather. I hardly move though really I’m traveling a terrific distance. Stillness. One of the doors into the temple.” ~ Mary Oliver
