Rahu in Cancer / Ketu in Capricorn

Rahu and Ketu moved into Cancer and Capricorn today after spending the past year and a half in Leo and Aquarius! Are you feeling the shifts? 

Today is also the midterm election in the US, which is very interesting timing. What does this mean? Rahu in Cancer indicates the need to develop internally where the true source of stability and happiness is found, while Ketu in Capricorn indicates the need to release the stress of trying to manage the outer conditions of life as an exclusive means of stability and happiness. 

The lesson of this election is that change is an inside out process. The true signs of change, transformation, and stability will not necessarily be reflected in the outer landscape of life until it has grown and ripened in the inner landscape of human consciousness (individually and collectively). Just as ripe fruit has no choice but to fall from the tree and nourish the ground on which it falls, the seeds of inner change are inevitably expressed outwardly. 

Many are feeling the evolutionary urge of Rahu today as they go and cast their vote (many for the first time), but our expectations for change must also direct us to the deeper process of understanding and transcendence which is its proper fuel. 

Rahu and Ketu are a polarity, an apparent tension of opposites. This tension affects our live at every level, and we can see it quite easily in the two-party system of American politics. The idea that a tug of war will enable one side to win over the other is a false resolution. The true resolution of polarity is not in the potency of opposition but in the revelation of unity. 

Two days from now on Nov 8, Jupiter enters its own sign of Sagittarius, a gracious and beneficial transit for all. Jupiter is the flow of goodness that stands beyond all oppositions, casting its light on enemies and friends alike. We have much to learn from Jupiter and from all its manifestations, especially the teachers and Gurus who embody its Gracious expression and light the sparks of Universal Joy within us. 

"The truly mature human individual is, characteristically, free of all the intrinsically and inevitably frustrating limitations of conditional reality and the personal and collective relationship-politics of social egoity. 

The truly mature human individual is radiant in the world, such that the Prior Unity of Reality Itself Is egolessly Alive As his or her human person. 

Therefore, a world-collective of truly mature (and, thus, rightly humanly and esoterically acculturated) human individuals can create a truly human, benign, moral, and Reality-Enlightened culture, founded in the Intrinsic Self-Apprehension of the Self-Nature, Self-Condition, and Self-State of Reality Itself. 

Only such a world-collective of truly mature human individuals is truly free of the inherent and chronic frustrations that otherwise constantly and only produce subhuman societies, subhuman cravings, and subhuman destinies (both before and after death)".
