Why doesn't everyone love to take out the garbage?

Through the first decade of this new millennium we schlepped tons of rotting cultural and moral  leftovers, and they’re really beginning to stink!  

At last we’ve put our abuses on trial.  Pluto, the lord of the underworld, has unearthed our darkest secrets--sexual abuse, greed for power, numbing of consciousness through drugs and alcohol.  Like wet worms writhing in our streets, they futilely try for another hiding place.  

Enter Uranus, the god of lightning, blazing new trails of courage, daring and initiative for all who would be free.  Outspoken demands for change are explosive, even impulsive, but intent on fresh air.

As we stand at today’s crossroads, where Uranus’ fire announces a drastic upheaval and Pluto’s power to transform insists on pulling up the roots, delay hurts us.

Yet to publicly demonize a few, when our culture at large set this destructive stage, is like putting a bandaid on a severed aorta.  A lot of bleeding without remedy.  

One road, less traveled, is the road of the revolutionary.  Another is the road through hell & back, the way of introspection.  And can you see a third way, a bridge across the great divide?

Feel the earth quake.  Choose.  Throw your junk into the fire!

The Force of clean air is with you.
