Unm, this article is? What, exactly?

An attempt to express appreciation for the very deep, vast field of astrology? An attempt to be all modern and hip and smarmy about it? An attempt to simply throw in the cards?

I don’t know the intent of the author, though the final paragraph suggests that my third guess may be close to the mark.

Look, I get it. It’s a super challenging time for humanity and, yes, America in particular.

The thing is, WE, meaning each individual, determine the future. Nothing and nobody else.

All astrology is about, really, is recognizing that the forces of Nature, including the forces of things beyond Earth, are connected to the forces within our heads – simply put, “as above, so below.”

I’ve lost a need for people to recognize the power of astrology; it’s been a year of diving deeply into the topic for me and it has helped, not only in addressing my personal psychology, but in understanding things happening in the collective.

Not everyone will go this route, just as I haven’t gone the route of nuclear physics. All of these fields of knowledge are simply tools and we are free to choose the ones that best match us and, yes, best aid us as we go through this thing called Life.

Last, as for the future of America, that’s up to YOU. It’s not up to the outcome of the election, or to that talking head who screams the loudest or to that group of organized crazies that you find so distasteful. Nope. Up to you.

So if enough of you decide, as I think this author may have decided, that it’s time to throw in the towel, America, then the towel will be tossed and the world will see America break up much in the 2020s as the USSR did in the 1980s. It happens.

I put the odds now at 50/50. Same place I put them going into this year. And yes, the more I’ve learned about the astrology of 2020 (a super potent year) and the 2020s (a pretty potent decade), the more those odds have, yes, stayed the same.

Why? Because it’s up to you.

Don’t let anyone, even a clever author like this, convince you otherwise.
