I'm finding that things like Twitter and the various psychological programs in play have that centrifugal force, and like many, I'm looking for ways to stay sane and stay myself. In my book Shapeshifter, I looked at the rise of social engineering to fracture and cut the roots of culture, with the agenda to absorb souls into the various hive minds. The depersonalization so many feel comes in part from this very thing. Who is the "I" within an increasingly fake and programmed reality?
In his final book, Autobiography of Values, Aquarian aviator Lindbergh described how he sought that balance between being a public persona and someone who needed solitude and nature. His travels gave him a whole-world perspective, and standing in the ruins of Greece, he thought about how the loss of wisdom often leads to the end of a civilization. I think we all know that doom scrolling on social media doesn't lead to wisdom, and the remedy is to be that person that can find time to think, ponder, and to let all the fragments we take in settle...to digest what we're seeing, form our own viewpoint. To go beyond being reactive, to be active with our minds and guard our own individuality.
Yet with America and the world in an epic crisis, it seems important to engage and speak up for nature and freedom. I see the battle being between nature and anti-nature, and in its finest moments, America has been a champion of natural inalienable rights. More and more though, we see how America is being absorbed into the global governance system, and we as individuals are here for a reason - each of us surely has a role to play.
America is in its Pluto return (according to the original chart of 1776), so let's consider the true bird of this nation, the Phoenix. Pluto can sometimes lead to an ordeal, possibly over many generations like the original time, until all that's false, dead, and not in harmony with nature, falls away. Will America break out of the trap that's been set for generations and rise from the ashes?
Back to Lindbergh, he was born on February 4, 1902,and after his pioneering flight (in 1927) from New York to Paris, he flew across a forested and wild America and the world. He became aware that the advances of flight were leading to the loss of untouched places. He writes of early flights with an open cockpit, touching clouds, feeling the air and moisture, and then seeing planes turn into comfortable enclosed seats apart from the reality of the elements.
"As civilization advances, man grows unconcious of the primitive elements of life; he is separated from them by his perfection of material techniquest. He keeps insulating himself with a compication of devices that increase his security but also surpress his senses. He forgets that he is a naked animal subject to the natural forces of earth and universe."
He's a fascinating Aquarian thinker, being both an innovator, a free speaker (even at great cost to himself), and someone who like his father before him, had visions of what was to come. Even as a young man, he saw the rise of a synthetic culture in America, and had a unique perspective - his summers were spent on the family farm in Minnesota, his school year in Washington D.C. where his father was a congressman. His father, Charles Augustus Lindbergh, was also a man with a vision into the future, and one of the few who had the courage to confront what he called The Money Trust.
I've thought lately about how along with a Deep State there's also been a Deep Great - heroes that saw beyond right and left and the politics of the moment and stayed true to their vision. Whatever happens to the America some of us value, there are values that are timeless and will live on, just as the deeds of great men (and women) live on.
A friend of me and my husband's died recently from lymphoma, and a few days before that, I had a dream about him and I just knew he would be passing away soon. He was driving us in his new 'vehicle' that could bounce over mountains and skip across lakes, and we were laughing with him at his new boundless freedom. I'm grateful for these kinds of experiences that show me that our consciousness is timeless and able to draw from eternal places. Lindbergh the younger wrote:
Dream, thought, and vision are not restricted by bonds of time and space. Our individuality is universality condensed in a cosmic moment. Death is no more than the stuff of substance transposing to the stuff of dream.
When that centrifugal force narrows us to a point ever smaller, we lose that panoramic AND timeless view of ourselves as eternal souls. Our powerful ability to shape our lives through visions and dreams is our way out of dystopian scenarios. The ability to think critically keeps you from being absorbed in the latest trending hysteria. You can find your highest view, even if that is at odds with the masses. And with so many planets in Aquarius, the visionary sign beyond labels and even time, we can draw some high vibes from the cosmos and be restored in nature of which we're a part. I saw a great quote recently, "We are not defending nature. We are nature defending itself."
And to add to the buzz, Mercury will be going retrograde from January 30th to February 20th, so what a great time to clear the psyche of mind viruses and toxic programming. We could see exhilarating declarations of independence from surprising people and places. Already we're seeing alliances forming to break the grip of the enslavement agenda (like in Italy, Poland), and some communities are using innovations like local currencies to help their struggling citizens.
We hear a lot about people being woke or waking up, but shaking off programming can be unsettling and also freeing, just like the vibe of Aquarius' ruler Uranus. New ways to organize society could be hatched, as don't forget, Aquarius' other ruler is Saturn. Aquarius is the air sign of fresh air, wind in your sails, feeling part of a vitalized group, a shared effort. It's also a sign of friendship, high ideals, and ruling principles, and the 11th Hour uniting to overcome whatever lies ahead.
