“Everything breathes together.” - Plotinus
The imminent shift into an archetypal paradigm, in which we transcend naïve subject-object dualism and experience meaning as not merely something manufactured by the brain…
Uranus-Pluto Alignments in the 1960s & the 2010s
Jupiter joining the revolution in 2016-2017 and magnifying things
What will the world be like after all this revolutionary energy runs its course?

How do you deal with knowing that most of your adult life is going to be spent navigating unprecedented social & personal transformation?
“I think having the archetypal perspective helps me to ‘zoom out’ and see this as part of a larger narrative, and to feel myself participating in something that is SO much bigger than me. So that helps. I definitely feel fear, as any mortal person would, during this time. I also feel the wave of excitement of this very powerful revolutionary moment, recognizing that change really IS necessary in this time.”
“…to just try and participate as fully as possible. Because it IS a remarkable time to be alive…”
“I think being okay with the Mystery has to be a part of it. And, at the same time, it can’t be a part of it all the time. Sometimes we do have to just melt down and accept the utter chaos and fear of it all and then pick ourselves back up from that place and keep going forward.”
