Cycles and Evolution
Hopes have been especially elevated with Pluto in the Galactic Center and the great Mayan prediction of major sudden transformation in 2012. Unlikely. Natural selection determines our gradual transmogrification, as traits best suited to the environment develop little by little. Everything mutates and changes according to habitat, beyond our control, fortunately. Exactly like this pine tree pictured above. It chose the characteristics that would encourage it to survive the conditions, incorporated them, and reproduced them over a long period of time. The surroundings influenced its growth. I just came across a fascinating article about apes, hominids, religion, and natural selection. It theorizes that humans evolved the way they did partly due to a spritual perception that favored survival. It's common to everyone on the planet. As the Moon in Sagittarius now crosses Jupiter and stationing Pluto, I'm once again reminded of these great cycles and what to expect. Pluto is given the job of evolutionary change in mass consciousness, according to astrology. I would personally love to see the end of religious hypocrisy, murder in the name of god, the political vulgarity, and the emergence of good leadership along with an anthropological understanding and acceptance of human differences and cultural diversity, but I'm realistic. It will take many revolutions and cycles until the current patterns no longer fit the needs of the time.
Many were hoping, after this country's descent into indecent behavior, that the people would awaken to the light of awareness. Unlikely. As is obvious with the parade of hopefuls resembling the line-up in central lockup (albeit with smiles glued on) more than civilized, inspired human beings, with the good of the collective in mind. But who really knows? The casting director is still working on some preliminaries.
I might not see the changes I would like, but I have seen signs of progress in my personal sphere, and this is a start.
