 - If I could book passage on a boat and see a frost flower meadow burst into being, magically growing out of the empty, frosty air and spreading as far as my eyes could see, would I want to see that?

You bet I would. Who wouldn't?

- It’s not just that shopping keeps you in debt, penniless and anchored to the grid via a job. Material possessions also severely limit your mobility, increase your worries (since with each new item purchased you now have more to lose), and have a generally dampening effect on your potentially revolutionary spirit.

As Henry David Thoreau so eloquently put it, “Material possessions are a positive hindrance to the elevation of mankind”.

- Under its current president, Yahya Jammeh, Gambia has seen important public health progress, and now Jammeh has proposed that AIDS can be cured through natural herbal remedies, something that has angered Western medical experts and the pharmaceutical industry.

In Gambia, testimonials from thousands of AIDS sufferers who have been taking the herbal concoction provided by Jammeh, show a marked improvement in health, weight gain, and a diminishing of symptoms.

After announcing that the seventh group of successfully cured AIDS patients had been discharged, President Jammeh stated that he wants to distribute the cure to all Gambian hospitals.

 - In January, the transformative energies of the new planetary structure are applied to our daily lives. We depend on the stability of relationships with family and community, with employers, coworkers and service providers.

January’s chart says that all of these important relationships will be shifting unpredictably as people seek freedom to grow, heal and pursue new goals. Interpersonal behavior patterns will change, making new social relationships possible for many, even as other relationships grow more tenuous. Much of this change will come easily for us because of planetary support. However, changes will be more problematic where money and other resources are involved, calling for careful negotiations.

- A sad and tender moment of love captured by Bernat Armangue in Gaza City in November 2012.

 - Consciousness, the concept of “I” and “me”, evolved only recently as a result of our development of language. With consciousness came the discovery that this “self” was mortal and would someday be “no more.”

The most basic motivator of human culture is to create alternate realities in which we can achieve victory over the anxiety of our recognition of eventual death. This death anxiety is repressed in normal consciousness but is fully “awake” subconsciously. It influences our behavior and thoughts, makes us appreciate order and affirm life. It creates our worldview, which we share with other humans. Different worldviews sometimes conflict, resulting in wars and aggression.

- 12/30 ~ Sun (core identity) ~conjunct~ Pluto (transformation):

This energy brings to mind a quote, “circumstances don’t MAKE a man ~ they REVEAL him”. This is Sun (ego) and Pluto (transformation) right next to each other, occupying the same space and you better believe that you will be a different being when this energy passes and the two planets separate again...

12/30 ~ Sun (core Self) ~sextile~ Saturn (organization):

This energy best of the week, try to connect with it more than the restriction the other energies this week bring. This energy is good for getting serious and organized ...

12/31 ~ Mars (action) ~sextile~ Uranus (breakthrough):

This energy gives you the original ideas that will fuel new action steps in your personal life. Beware of any urge to change for the sake of change...

1/1/2013 ~ Mercury (expression) ~sextile~ Neptune (dreams):

This is a great energy for being imaginative and intuitive. This is not an intellectual energy, you will have to rely on other senses, like feeling (intuition)...

1/3 ~ Mercury (connection) ~square~ Uranus (intuition):

This energy provokes a lot of mental stimulation! If you are naturally flexible, this energy tends to make you get bored easily; if your are NOT naturally flexible, prepare to be aggravated...

1/4 ~ Mars (energy) ~trine~ Jupiter (enthusiasm):

This energy is GREAT!! This is good for all activity - physical and otherwise - you will feel uplifted and motivated and capable of twice the productivity as usual...

 - "If you bring forth what is within you, what you bring forth will save you. If you do not bring forth what is within you, what you do not bring forth will destroy you." - Jesus, quoted in the Gnostic Gospel of Thomas.

John (Fire) Lame Deer: "Before our white brothers arrived to make us civilized men, we didn’t have any kind of prison. Because of this, we had no delinquents. Without a prison, there can be no delinquents. We had no locks nor keys and therefore among us there were no thieves...

- Everything is shifting and it will continue to do so for the foreseeable future. Most of it is for the better.  But this constant shifting leaves us to adjust, re-adjust, and adjust again. It’s all about fine tuning.

As we develop new relationships and old relationships evolve, we need to keep close track of fairness issues. We are building the foundations of our future lives. We need to do that carefully and with special attention to issues of fairness, fairness for ourselves and others.
