When Walls Tumble Down

Putney Mountain, Vermont
Shortly before midnight U.S. eastern time, December 19, the Lord of Karma, Saturn, enters Capricorn for three years. The last time Saturn passed through Capricorn the Berlin Wall came down, which is a good reminder of the walls that need to topple in our own time.
The high calling of Saturn in Capricorn is to see yourself not just as you are but as you’re intended to be — to view your life as gods and angels see it. From that vantage point, which we all can rise to, though few of us manage to sustain it on a day-to-day basis, who you are and what you’re doing is crystal clear: you were born to give the unique gift of your true inner nature to this world, which can only be given when you dig down into what you’re really made of. Once you dig through layers of ego, emotional wounds, past scars and illusion, you’re made of the kind of love so strong it’ll light the universe. You’re made of stars. Even literally — the iron in your blood came from white dwarf stars that exploded on the other side of the galaxy and sent their life’s blood to our planet. The nitrogen that makes our atmosphere breathable was dropped off here by comets passing from the deepest reaches of space.
During times of great social unrest, violence and distortion — like the 1960’s and the current time — our task remains the same — to tear down the walls that keep us from the truth of love and the truth of truth.
Saturn is Lord of Karma and karma is the gift the gods gave us to keep us on the track of our soul. The Law of Karma states that every action will have an equal and opposite reaction. If you’ve spent lifetimes getting lost in sex, politics, ego, health, love or money, the only way you can clear that karma is if it comes back again — not to punish you — but to offer your greatest opportunity to awaken in the very place you’re most asleep. That kind of awakening sends the walls tumbling down.
