This is a very important time in the U.S.A, Election Day is on Tuesday November 6. I have always voted even when frustrated regarding the ‘political menu’. In the early 1960s, I lived in another country for a few months. I was very young but I saw what it was like to not have the amenities and the options we have in America. Whether we like what is going on politically or not, we really do have to vote. If we do not, our Democracy–more like our freedom of choice-is compromised and chiseled away at, piece-by-piece and bit by bit, until the lunatics are in charge of the asylum. I am not pointing to any particular party or politician but I am saying that if we do what we always have done, then we will keep getting what we have always gotten politically. For many of these politicians, it is time to leave, whether Democrat, Republican or Independent. For many of the politicians running the U.S. government-435 in the House of Representatives, and 100 Senators-they keep doing the same old, same old.
This Democratic process is taking place as Venus is retrograde. There is also the New Moon in Scorpio, at 15º and exactly 90-days after the last eclipse of August 18, 2018. I find it very interesting that one planet that is hanging around these last two 90-day periods is the planet Uranus, which is the planet of awakening. It is the planet that allows us to think outside of the box, bringing sudden pieces of information to light that can wake us up and encourage action.
As I close this week’s series of thoughts I ask that you think about this, when the USA government was formed, and the constitution signed, the population of the United States was 4,000,000. If you do the math, dividing 4,000,000 by 535, that comes out to a representative for every 7,476 persons! Now, with the population at 327 million people, that representation for the entire United States comes out to a representative to every 611,215 people!! Think about that…. Each one of those numbers, if of age, has a voice. Do not give up your voice. And, as always, it is your choice.
