Water Takes Air
by Soul Level Astrologer Mark Borax
The cosmic weather of July, 2016, features a lack of Air and preponderance of Water, indicating that feelings will dominate our ability to gain a clear, neutral perspective. When Air is low and Water is high our mental faculties recede into the background as our emotions rush into the spotlight.
Old feelings, often long-buried and supercharged, rush to the surface. When this happens in more than one person at once, in groups such as marriages, families and nations, the intensity can get overwhelming.
Things are getting crazier and crazier in the collective drama of our time, which might be called The Final Act of a False Civilization. We stand at the major crossroads of our time and the way we handle this period will determine the fate of the world. ( I explore this in depth in the book I co-wrote with Ellias Lonsdale, Cosmic Weather Report: Guidance for Radically Changing Times, that can be ordered in bookstores and on Amazon).
As things heat up in here and out there, each of us is being confronted over and over from many angles with the choice of whether to cling to obsolete stories or claim the new story desperately striving to rise up from the soul of the world.
In the Old Story you stuffed your truth, love and Dream under a mask that enabled you to pass incognito among everyone else caught in the Masquerade. In the Old Story you forget you came from a miraculous cosmos as a soul in wonder, down to earth where you could bring your inner truth out in a radiant burst that blows away masks. You forgot you’re made of love, and, if you dig down deep enough, you can plant that love like a seed in a world that needs your love to grow stronger than the hate that surrounds it.
In the Old Story you paid allegiance to priests that molested children and politicians that sold your country to the Frackers and Destroyers. You got your news from corporate media and supported the Democratic Party because you thought they were infinitely better than the Republicans. You assumed these politicians would actually represent you rather than whore themselves out to Big Money.
Do you know that for years the White House has been serving pure organic meals to the First Family while the President and Congress fight GMO labeling and grant Big Agriculture a free pass to rape the land and poison everyone who can’t afford or doesn’t feel the need to eat organic? In the Old Story you tried diligently to get into a college where you could learn a skill or prepare for a career. You believed in professors and doctors and hospitals and priests and presidents and news reporters and congress.
But a sick force of greed stole the credibility of these societal guardians away.
We can no longer believe that doctors who vaccinate our children are on the side of truth. We can no longer expect politicians – whether Democrats or Republicans – to represent us. How can you trust a government which takes billions of dollars from Monsanto in return for making laws where people that Monsanto poisons with cancer no longer have a right to sue them? How can you trust a government that allows several geothermal plants to pump toxic waste into the base of the San Andreas fault, setting up the west coast cataclysm that is sure to follow?
As the Old Story dies, the New Story striving to be born involves a return to what’s true and real and necessary and inspirational just as so many things we used to believe in crumble. The truth is that the civilization that’s dying had to die because it was strangling the soul of the world. If you step outside of corporate-controlled US media, the death spasms of American democracy become obvious to watchers in many countries, who are shaking their heads in disbelief as the United States is being exposed as the Biggest Fool of All.
But in the layers of supercharged feeling buried underneath that old fool, down below the histrionic final act of a False Civilization, an urge for the truth and love that we rose up to proclaim in the 1960s is coming back again. When you can no longer believe in your priests and idols it’s time to ignite the great radiance of your soul, band up with like-minded spiritual outlaws, and overthrow the reign of abusers, frackers, liars and wasters. Nothin’ more to lose…
Who Are You Really? What Are You Here For?
How Much Longer Are You Willing to Wait?
