I am an avid student of astrology and follow several online astrologers. ALL of them, for the entire year of 2019, have discussed the upheavals of 2020. There is no way that anyone cannot have been affected by the events of the past months. What we should consider is how these events have positioned us to grow; personally, nationally and globally ???
As to the Covid-19 crisis, my heart and prayers go out to all who have been affected by this disaster. Those who have suffered loss, those who have worked tirelessly as supporters and responders, and indeed to everyone dealing with the lock down changes. I am blessed in my studies of varied philosophies and Eastern thought to have a solid relationship to the ideas concerning death, and do not fear that eventuality. I am likewise blessed to be free of the serious relationship attachments to which most people are committed. Having a physical body is a tremendous gift and should be respected for as long as possible. It is the vehicle of growth and evolution on this physical plane.
I was therefore not concerned to join this recent demonstration of solidarity concerning the GREATLY NEEDED awareness for social change in the United States. In the photos you can see how people were masked and following distance protocols by and large. The event was peaceful, inspiring to the hundreds of people who attended and watched, and organized with the awareness of the local authorities. My favorite sentiment is the sign asking to “REDEFINE”. Yes, we must WAKE UP, EVOLVE, REDEFINE and GROW, for the good of all humanity.
In the words of poet, Maya Angelou, “I believe that people have the ability to change. Therefore I have hope.” Hoping we can rise to the occasions of these destined challenges of 2020.
