I'm eager to get out, walk around a bit on this beautiful day in Washington DC. I'm eager to experience the energy from the transit of Venus, notice how that energy is settling over the landscape. There was an eclipsed moon the day before yesterday as well.
These precise planetary alignments create huge bursts of energy, at least that's what it feels like to me. Last night's transit had the quality of a moment during which the unspoken is at last said out loud. Even if it's an unpleasant truth, it's such a relief when someone says it out loud. Same goes for pleasant truths, like when President Obama said out loud, in public, that he believes gay people should be legally allowed to marry each other. In ten years it's going to seem so horrid that we ever thought we should not allow this.
When someone finally says it out loud - that the emperor has no clothes, for instance - it's not possible to go back to the old ways. Beyond the sense of relief that surrounds truth telling, the speaking out loud creates an environment ripe with possibility for change.
The eclipses/transit were more potent than I expected, making possible many new paths, creating possibilities for unforeseen benefits and opportunities for growth and evolution. Like I said the other day, we can spin straw into gold now, right now. But we must get out the spinning wheel and get to work. It won't happen just by thinking about it. Yes? I say yes!
I'm an intense person, hence I find this kind of planetary craziness quite exilarating. How are y'all faring? Well, I hope.
Onwards and upwards. L'chaim and Shalom!
