Hail Brave Hearts
There’s still time. Time to sing, time to play, time for hope, time to pray. The season of merriment and joy is with us. Gladness and goodwill to share, is among us. Rejoice, oh great human. The world is still full of adventure and promise, discovery and fulfillment. There is still time to enjoy the goodness that life brings.
In the dead of winter, there is great joy. Look to the heavens for the sign of your saviour. His mark is in the sky. A rare event of celestial proportions rises in the night sky on December 21, 2020. A year that has been marked by pandemic, disease, isolation, poverty, death and despair. How obvious, oh shiny star, to light up the night sky this year. How obvious, oh shiny star to lead us once again.
The planets of Saturn and Jupiter will align to this degree, for the first time in 800 years. Celestial configurations occur frequently, but this planetary alignment is a precious sight. As Jupiter and Saturn meet in the south westerly sky, shortly after sunset on December 21, we will see the bright, shiny star of Christmas. Perhaps not the brilliant star that guided the wise men to Bethlehem, but still it is a Christmas star. A star to light up our lives and a star to wish upon.
This year has been a difficult one, full of disease and disaster. The world has been somewhat chaotic in environmental disaster, pandemic virus, economic doom. Our guiding light has been our ability to meet virtually on computer screens and cellphones which keep us connected to our friends and loved ones. Lockdown has been the message of choice, to control a health crisis which has escalated beyond our control. As fabulous as we are, we are only mortal.
The power of prayer is upon us. Store after store closes, awaiting a shift to normal business hours. Awaiting a vaccine to cure this pandemic and to praise the magnificent, once again. Save us! Save us, you mighty minds, we know that you know how to. Bankruptcy looms in the despair of a command. Stay home! Once again, we are shut in. Shut in, closed off, with few social contacts and no gatherings.
Shine, oh great magnificent light! Shine and bring us Christmastime! Shine oh holy light, the light of our life, oh star of Bethlehem. Shine.
Although the Bethlehem star is still not really explained, since there have been other conjunctions which produce a great, shiny light in the sky. This one that we will be witnessing on December 21, 2020, this winter’s solstice, will be the brightest that we will be able to see. The timing is perfect. It is Christmas. The vaccine has started to arrive. We will become well again, venture out again, rejoice again. Glad tidings to you and yours during this very difficult time, but it is passing. This Christmas star might not herald in a new savior, but it will bring in a new astrological shift. Coincidentally? Perhaps. The mysterious night sky and the the heavens bring in a new age in 2021. Behold, a new age is dawning. The age of Aquarius.
