I write my nightly essays for YOU, not for me. I care about you and I know that growing as a human being is certainly one of the meanings of life. I also know that when I’m angry or worse, I can feel the anger flow through my body and mind and spirit like a poison, even when I am “righteously” angry about someone who has abandoned their humanity and harmed another person or animal or…I get angry just thinking about it.

But I stop myself because I know it accomplishes nothing and just makes me sick. THAT is why I write the following, though I know I’m either preaching to the choir or my words are going to fall on ears deafened by hateful thoughts and words and veering toward the siren song of comfort and protection found in the echo chambers all the way up to the Piscean escapist mob mentality, but evil triumphs when good people do nothing, no? So I am going to write something and hope that it qualifies for doing something: The Truth is not afraid of questions. Think about that for a minute. Sri Yuktesvar's maxim is as true today as it was the day he said it. There is NO justification for being disrespectful and intolerant of ANY person, despite their political affiliation. The First Amendment was enshrined in the USA's Constitution to protect the speech that you or I may hate, not to protect the speech that you or I may like. The expression, "I may not agree with what you say but I will fight to the death for your right to say it," is in keeping with the Astro Weather Energy Matrix as it exists right now. Unfortunately, it seems a lot of people are just looking for a fight and those that do usually find one. Chiron's retrograding back into Pisces, where you may remember I would bang on about it corresponding to humanity's attempt to clean house from the Dark Ages we are still emerging from, that retrograding of Chiron calls on us to look at the aggressive nature of those dealing with woundings, perceived and real, that has come into fashion since April of this year and has begun to pass as almost acceptable, though I cannot understand how anyone can condone violence or threats or disrespect. The USA’s Declaration of Independence contains the words: "We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all women and men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.” Just because it didn’t say “women and men” in the original doesn’t diminish the power of us as a people to grow and get better. I have always been on the side of women because I saw they were getting a raw deal and I’m here on Earth in part to defend those who need defending, though I’m a human being who has, himself, grown A LOT in my decades of life. I almost stopped doing readings because I had grown so angry at the number of female clients who had been abused. I chose, instead, to do the work and stop being a baby and grow and deal with it and do my best to be a part of the solution, not part of the problem, which is what I would have been had I stopped helping. I know that people have had a lot of terrible experiences, they tell them to me. However, there's nothing that says anyone has the right to assault anyone because they, themselves, have been assaulted. I've had guns pointed in my face, been attacked by gangs, and that doesn't stop me from being kind and respectful to everyone I meet. Violence and disrespect accomplishes nothing but getting other people to do what they can to show you a thing or two. The hurtful hateful people have almost universally been hurt and victimized by hate. There are few born evil doers, though they do exist and must be taken into account. For the Astro Curious: We are all challenged to correct our course. Remember that Chiron was in Pisces and its effect perceivable during the USA's presidential nominating process and the election. And Chiron going back into Pisces is happening when Mars/Aquarius is EXACTLY crossing the South Node of the Moon, Mars/Aquarius is square to both Uranus/Taurus aand Venus/Scorpio (T-square), Saturn/Capricorn is EXACTLY trine to Uranus/Taurus. If this is not the Astro Weather Energy Matrix calling on humanity to get its shit together and a Clarion call to bring newness and fairness and mutual respect for peaceful people back into prominence in our affairs, then I don't know what is. Jupiter/Scorpio sexytile Pluto/Capricorn? Fuggedaboutit! If we can do things correctly the potential for fairly rapid rewards and peace breaking out is is huge!!! Once the Sun goes into Scorpio on the 23rd/24th of October, we are going to have that situation where all of the planets are one half of the zodiac again. The Moon will break out for fourteen days and stamp out some pretty emotionally intelligent babies, but it will give us that lopsided feeling again. So yes, this is a time when things can feel very polarized and polarizing in terms of you vs others, but we are much smarter people now than we were back in 2011 up until April of this year and now we have the opportunity to prove it to ourselves and to others. Or not. Your choice, as usual. The stars incline, they do not compel - Ptolomy
