Birth by Fire

Fire is an interesting element.  It needs air to consume matter, and as it does, it produces light.  What we are about to enter is no less interesting, all-consuming, or light-producing.

Fire got the attention of the world when the fire and ash the Icelandic volcano kept spewing into the sky temporarily halted air travel.  When the BP oil rig exploded we witnessed fire's destructive power.  Everyday we see the effect of that power - the 90,000 or so barrels of oil that continue to flow out of Mother Earth.  As I said in my last blog, she is bleeding out.  Just before the oil well blew and shortly thereafter, there were at least three mine explosions around the world - West Virginia, Russia, and Turkey.  I can't help but think Mother Earth wants us out of!

From a bigger perspective, we live on one of billions of planets in the universe.  What we do here affects the rest of creation.  Perhaps some good has come from the oil rig explosion and Icelandic volcano eruption.  We are FINALLY starting to understand that everything is connected and what happens in one location can and does affect the rest of the planet...and the universe.

Some of our planetary neighbors are about to add to the fun.  On May 27, Uranus, the planet of sudden changes, shocks, upheavals, innovative thought, rebellion, independence, liberation, and awakening, heads into Aries.  Aries is a fire sign.  More fire.  The Aries fire is ambitious, impulsive, full of energy, self-centered, aggressive, and argumentative.  Put the two together and you have a recipe for sudden profound change.  Birth by fire.  From the cosmic blacksmith's fire, we will be reformed. We, the People, will soon have enough.

In the midst of our personal and collective transformations, more earth and economic changes will most likely alter the landscape of the world.  As tectonic plates move and waves crash, we may wake up one day and look out at a vastly different world.  As money continues to be drained from us, we realize we must work together.  

When can we expect things to really "heat up?"  July, of course - from mid July through October we are likely to have a bumpy ride.  On May 27 at 9 PM EDT I will offer a free teleconference about the coming changes for the remainder of 2010, entitled "The State of the World."  Even if you cannot listen in at that time, the call will be recorded.  If you are interested, please email me and I will send you the call in number, access code, and call back number to listen later.  I am compiling some useful information which I will send you once it is complete.
