Lot's happening in the world arena, both secular and spiritual. Astrology has never been so interesting (to me). On Tuesday, July 3, the Full Moon in Capricorn opposes the Sun in Cancer. This speaks to balance between home and public life. Celestial oppositions of Sun and Moon can affect our personal lives and the political climate worldwide.
Cancer wants us to be homebodies and pay attention to our immediate family. Capricorn is about more wide-spread responsibilities and influences our career, sense of duty, and public life.
If you are a Cancer or Capricorn, or have these signs strongly indicated in your chart, you might be having a tug of war between what you want and what you think you "should" do. You might want to stay home but are forced into a career or public life that takes you away from home. It could be just the opposite. You might be pursuing a public life or career and be forced to pay more attention to what's happening at home.
Oppositions always demand a compromise. We must find a way to do both without completely sacrificing one or the other. This can play out on the personal or global scale.
The United States, that resonates to both Cancer and Capricorn pretty strongly is struggling with issues at home and the need to be an influence in the world. This won't be resolved anytime soon, but it is a comfort to know that if astrology has anything to say about it, eventually, a middle ground will be struck to solve many of our problems.
The slow-moving planets are the ones to look at for deep cycles in our life and for global issues. Right now:
We have 64,000 thoughts per day. Here is the interesting statistic, 95% of those thoughts are the same things we thought about yesterday and the day before that. These are the same thoughts you will be thinking about tomorrow and the next day and the day after that. As you can see not much new information is being thought about. We become strongly attached to “our” way of thinking as we repeat these same thoughts day after day.
With each thought we have a chemical is made by our brain. Every thought has a corresponding chemical for each thought.
Who are you? What are you? How do you know? What do the results you get from anythiing in your life have to do with your identity? These ideas are important.
Everything you have and everything you do come from your identity—what and who you think you are or aren't, and what and how you think it, content and process.
Your identity, your sense of yourself, is learned, so you can unlearn it, relearn it, to make a more powerful and effective you. . . .

Those are just a few of the "banners" we lived by in the late 60's and 70's. As many of you who follow my blog, Confessions of a Confetti Head, know, I have had a varied life experience. I guess choosing not to be a mother and not being tied down to much in the way of conventional thinking allowed me to gladly move from one life venue to another.
Okay, enough with the 2012 already, right? I promise, well, I can't promise, but I am determined to resist any more articles about 2012 and the Doomsday sayers after this one.
First of all, RELAX! 2012 is definitely not the apocalypse, nor it is any herald of great awakening and enlightenment. Why there are so many out there predicting one or the other, or both is, in my opinion coming from deep seated psyche, fears, and hopes rather than on factual evidence or astrology. Even though the predictions are supposedly based on the Mayan calendar, the fact is that there is more than one Mayan calendar, and none of them really reflect the astrology of the year.
Publisher's Description: This book is about the global environmental and economic crisis. It challenges the whole global economic system and its underlying beliefs, assumptions and values. We need a complete system transformation, a paradigm shift. This requires holistic and whole system thinking. It is a thoroughly hopeful book. The focus is on the possibility of a better world, a more fulfilling way of life, rather than what’s wrong or what we have to give up.
Could this book be the best one on the global environmental and economic crisis? The central argument is that we, ordinary people, 6.7 billion of us, need to use our people power to bring about a sustainable, fairer and non-violent world. This means putting our governments under constant pressure to do more and represent citizens’ interests and not those of big business. There are many books about the global crisis. But few, aimed at empowering ordinary people, take a holistic approach. It is for those many people who are concerned, open minded and ready to act.
