The tides are turning. Things will never be again the way they were before.
Within the womb of tonight’s dark moon, a new beginning is possible. Beyond the astrology, the rhetoric and conjecture lies a simple truth. We can’t continue life as usual.
We find our world gripped in chaos and destruction, foundations shredded. Expectations lie shattered at our feet. Hopes and dreams wobble in the wind.
Inspired ideas urgently emerge from the void to guide and focus what will soon be born.
Indigenous cultures and sacred texts around the world – even the geological record of the planet herself – have told us for eons that a time would come when life would change suddenly on Earth. That would be now.
While natural cycles have come to a point like this in the past, we’ve reached an evolutionary juncture never experienced before with this many people living on the planet.
The tremendous changes we witness every day in our lives and our world are not random. Step back, and you’ll begin to perceive the design.
As the changes accelerate, the Earth shakes and comets fly by, notice that people are coming together in new ways to address the challenges we face as a species. How do we care for the 7 billion people living here now, and those to come? How will we meet our needs for energy, food, shelter, health care and the other basics of human life? What kind of authentic economy could we create that’s both local and global? What forms of governance are responsive and responsible to the people? What does education look like in the next world? Which elements of our culture will we preserve?
How can we create a sustainable, loving human presence on the planet?
The Earth herself has much wisdom to share. The children know, too. Ask them.
Every person living today has a role to play in this transition, a contribution to make in what comes next. Some are leaders, many are followers. Everyone needs to collaborate as we align with the great turning, this unprecedented moment in human history. What’s your part?
This Virgo new moon asks us to step up and take responsibility for creating a better world for future generations. It’s time for commitment, followed by action
