Compassionate Humanity

Dear Ones,

On the cusp of the some very significant numerology and astrology, I’ve come out of hiatus…

The energy of the year ahead is exponentially bumpy and abrasive.  Please understand that you are in no way to be faulted for feeling exceptionally crazy…in fact, crazy will serve as normal for at least the next couple days (not to mention, weeks, months or years, but, I’m getting ahead of myself). 

First off, understand that you will feel overwhelmed on some level and this is not ridiculous, it is a condition of being alive and human in the moments in which we now dwell.  

Secondly, understand that we’re all in this together, that we are all laboring jointly in that rare collective juncture of consternation, anger, alienation, and upset.

The  concussive impacts  of past, current and future events have the potential can bleed through the hours and days ahead potentially constituting a global marker of historic proportions…sort of like we-all-were-one-way-before-this and we-all ended-up-that-way-after (arguably, we jumped that event horizon already.  What’s ahead may only differ in magnitude, and in required levels of remediation).

If we Measure The Day using the ancient and new tools available, we can perceive a stormy path before us… the numerology (and astrology, and climate change science, and social and political polemicists, etc.) do incline toward it.

And yes, while most of us might not have enough agency to influence the course of world events one way or another, we certainly have control over our own reactions.  We have opportunities to respond, and such responses may be more defining, more clarifying than the big bads staring us down at the end of the day

“The measure of who we are is what we do with what we have.”

Vince Lombardi

In January, numerologically, a FIVE month, we can embody the archtype of both the steadying hand and the fleetness of feet. Translation? We can be supportive and responsive agents for good, for our fellow human beings as well as other non-human residents of the planet.  

“This is humankind’s mission in our young century…to survive we must herald in a time of concentrated collaboration because we are undeniably, intractably, and inescapably, interdependent.”

-Elisabeth Courington

In essence we’ll help ourselves by being helpful to others…we’ll save ourselves by in turn being defenders, we’ll find ourselves by helping those who are lost.  Beyond a mere tit for tat, I’ll scratch-your-back-if-you-scratch-my-back mentality, this is compassionate humanity… solutions are found–however small and to whatever extent we’re capable–by grappling with and discovering solutions for our fellow planet dwellers. 

This isn’t accomplished via a fabled or false sense of altruism, but by employing a grounded, realistic, heartfelt and at times desperate sense that what the times demand is a humanity  united; this amalgamated effort is what it will take to get us All out of the threatening sh#tfests, somewhat intact. 

In spite of worldwide movements to the contrary, 2020 is the bare, naked ground zero point in this century where we will no longer have the luxury of thinking of ourselves as lone actors.  We must to look to those we can be aligned with (And revolutionarily with those we’d rather not consort with) and find some common ground, because it’s the last trick in the bottom of Pandora’s box.  If we don’t find some twisty-turny way to live together, even if the only connective thread is simply our shared membership in the human race, we May all fall down the well… together.

“We’ve got to live, no matter how many skies have fallen.”

D.H. Lawrence

Make no mistake, this is my opinion peering subjectively into the future.  However, if you find yourself close to the end of things, try forging some kind of connection.  Forewarned is Forearmed.


-Jean-Luc Picard
