Ain't That America?

Cosmic Quote of the Day: “Freedom rings where opinions clash.” Adlai Stevenson

Although we may want other people to agree with our opinions – especially since we know we’re usually spot on in our assessment of things 🙂 – the mere fact that we can disagree on matters, is something that we should always be appreciative or grateful for, and something that we must never allow ourselves to take for granted, as we have all seen, especially recently, how insidious life can be when freedom of speech is suppressed or obliterated. Thomas Jefferson once remarked that he never considered a difference of opinion in politics, in religion, in philosophy, as cause for withdrawing from a friend.

Today’s Energy:

On this Fourth of July, America’s celebration of freedom, the Moon is deposited, the entire day, in diversity-oriented Aquarius. This Moon placement, while more emotionally detached, can serve to take us outside of ourselves, and our own interests, to focus on the greater interests or needs of the collective. Accordingly, it is a time when we may feel more predisposed to taking a stand on causes that are important to us, that reflect or support our values. Also this may be a period when we might just long to be with others, especially with the people who make us come alive, or who are interesting to us, for one reason or another. The Moon’s sextile to routine-buster Uranus (6:16 pm) also gives us a fascination for “what’s off the beaten path,” while the Moon’s opposition to exuberant Jupiter (9:37 pm) allows us to connect with what brings our heart joy, and delivers a palpable sense of oxygen to our spirit.
