The wholistic movement of a herd of cows as they graze throughout the day is a clear display of interdependent unity. This positive side of the herd instinct is countered by the dangers of a group mind where the impulse of one member can become a contagion of lethal proportion. This was on tragic display in Memphis, with the brutal killing of Tyre Nichols.
We are solidly in the Age of Aquarius whose salient impulse is the herd instinct. At its highest level, this collective concern for all of the human race is the evolutionary path we will be on for the next 1000 years, as we wend our way through the Age of Aquarius. That collective intent will deliver our future world to solid footing, eventually.
Social media and political parties throughout the world have settled into large herds with lowered consciousness. These independent groups react with lightning speed, bereft of deep reflection and morality, which frequently eventuates in impulsive, aggressive, and, at times, lethal consequences.
Aquarius is an air sign whose spirit rises above the Earth on the mental plane. Its capacity for rational, civilized thinking to address the true needs of the whole is its modus operandi. The compensatory depths of the Earth, which harbor the deeply irrational forces of nature, which are part of our wholeness, may be devalued or completely underestimated from this view from above.
WWI and WWII were major eruptions of the irrational dimension of human nature, as science and technology jettisoned to become the superior function of humankind, supplanting God and religion, which once offered reconciliation for the rational and irrational sides of the psyche. War is the compensation when spirit negates the fullness of nature.
The war in Ukraine is actually WWIII being played out, with tenuous balance, by all the major powers in the world attempting to prevent its contagion beyond its local borders. Nonetheless, the irrational is bursting through all over the world in mass shootings and in conflicts in intimate family relationships. Though everyone must be accountable for their behavior, let us not be naive as to the power of the unconscious to take possession of ego sovereignty.
Channelings from Judge Hatch, Letters from The Afterlife, and Jeanne, through Jan and archived here on our website, have assured us that the Earth, though vastly changed, will endure and evolve beyond the next millennium.
Thus, we can trust in the ultimate success of our Aquarian ideal. However, we must face the likelihood that the next few centuries will be dominated by conflict. Our challenge is one of patience, a call to courage, and a reconciliation with the multi-dimensions of who we truly are, spirit in all of its many forms.
The Greek gods on Mount Olympus demonstrated the law that the gods must be propitiated, or else. Even the one God of modern Christianity has its shadow. As individuals we can best propitiate the gods by finding them within, facing and reconciling with our own shadows.
The gods/spirits rouse us in dream, projection, thought, sensation, intuition and emotion. Listen to them, acknowledge them through interaction and action, which give expression to their messages. Stay true to the ideals they espouse, in alignment with our true potential as individuals and as a collective whole, despite the limitations of the real in everyday life. At all costs, keep ego deeply grounded in the truth of these numinous encounters and the truths they reveal, lest it get swept away in a contagion of volatile energy.
Don’t get ruffled. It’s our destiny, but approach it practically by practicing discipline in all things. Get into balance with all spirits, positive and negative, to balance wholeness and forestall the invasion of too much spirit of the wrong kind. Stay in the commonsense of the heart; think with the heart not the head.
Reconciliation with spirit requires ego to be at its scientific best, as it journeys to discover and reconcile with the depths of its fuller spirit self. First and foremost, steady the breath, calm the central nervous system, and acquiesce to the true journey of your own lifetime.
