Happy New Year Star-People and best wishes for the year ahead.
After a very turbulent 2016, things will hopefully settle down. The major astrological alignments which have formed over the past few years have laid their foundations, and we are learning to live in a rapidly changing world. 2017 features no major planetary alignments which is interesting of itself. In fact, a lack of “hard” aspects after so much flux could be interpreted as a period for things to settle down.
Such a statement seems counter-intuitive, considering all that is currently going on. With so much violence, deception and unrest influencing our lives it’s hard to imagine a year where peace will prevail. But thinking like this is possibly the smartest thing anyone could do. A wise person once said the only thing you can really ever change is yourself. The truth of this is quite profound. When we feel despair at the bloodshed happening on our streets, or the gross manipulations of those in power we have two choices. Give a piece of ourselves away by trying to forget about it, or make a decision to be a better human being. The latter is the wisest choice, and the only one that can help. A more peaceful world starts the moment we decide to treat ourselves and others with the kindness we intrinsically seek.
Another interesting idea worth thinking about is the idea that the planets can “predict” what will happen in our lives. By starting the year thinking “I wonder what will happen?…..”, then seeking an astrologer or psychic to answer that, we immediately disempower ourselves. The reason this takes our power away is we start start to invest energy into a seductive yet probably false belief that there is something “out there” greater than us shaping or directing our lives.
