NOW WE THRIVE
For those of us troubled by these crazy times; and tempted to give in to despair but determined to not only survive, but thrive anyway... yes there is a wonderful awakening happening right now!

It might be veiled by the illusion of hatred and separation but underneath it all there is a wellspring of human hope, compassion, fraternity and sovereign empowerment just busting to rise up and claim a golden new age of shared abundance/mutual respect/individual liberty in the world. Those previously trodden underfoot are so ready to rise up and shine; without malice or violence but so not taking the bullshit anymore...

Fuq dualistic/ two-party candidates, fuq media censorship, fuq brain-dead racism/sexism, fuq warfare/oppression and fuq the central banking cabal that wants us all impoverished and fighting our brothers & sisters over the illusion of scarcity... there's plenty to go around IF we live more sustainably on the planet and share the resources wisely and equitably.
Let's not forget that money/currency was only ever useful as a means of exchange, to save us carting around whatever goods/services we wish to trade with one another; yes coin is handy to make healthy commerce more efficient but usury/interest/fictional fiat currency/numbers on a screen/obscenely hoarding fictional wealth/real resources at the expense of our fellow man -and the endless debt slavery that has us tied to soul-destroying labour producing endless crap we don't need (or even really want) is just ludicrously unnecessary.
A simpler, more sustainable economy/civilisation, and ecological balance on this planet is possible right now-if we choose it.
Let's love one another and support all of our fellow humans and animals on this planet to rise up and live freely, with dignity and reclaiming our right to truly thrive -on our own, unique, anarchic, individual terms but also all in it together no matter what -it's not as much of a paradox as it sounds!
Astrologically right now: bitch goddess Lilith in full rebel mode says fuq you to the man/the system/unhealthily controlling societal norms that have held us back for so so long, and Chiron says let's pull together and do this collective psychic healing gently, lovingly and compassionately -so that no-one gets left behind as we hold fast our resolve to evolve toward a more peaceful, inclusive age...
The wonderful Maya Angelou said it better than I ever could...
You may write me down in history With your bitter, twisted lies, You may trod me in the very dirt But still, like dust, I'll rise. Does my sassiness upset you? Why are you beset with gloom? 'Cause I walk like I've got oil wells Pumping in my living room. Just like moons and like suns, With the certainty of tides, Just like hopes springing high, Still I'll rise. Did you want to see me broken? Bowed head and lowered eyes? Shoulders falling down like teardrops. Weakened by my soulful cries. Does my haughtiness offend you? Don't you take it awful hard 'Cause I laugh like I've got gold mines Diggin' in my own back yard. You may shoot me with your words, You may cut me with your eyes, You may kill me with your hatefulness, But still, like air, I'll rise. Does my sexiness upset you? Does it come as a surprise That I dance like I've got diamonds At the meeting of my thighs? Out of the huts of history's shame I rise Up from a past that's rooted in pain I rise I'm a black ocean, leaping and wide, Welling and swelling I bear in the tide. Leaving behind nights of terror and fear I rise Into a daybreak that's wondrously clear I rise Bringing the gifts that my ancestors gave, I am the dream and the hope of the slave. I rise I rise I rise.
