Courage is not the absence of fear, but rather the judgment that something else is more important than fear. Ambrose Redmoon
Dangers bring fears, and fears more dangers bring. Richard Baxter
Who sees all beings in his own Self, and his own Self in all beings, loses all fear. Upanishad
I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain. Frank Herbert
The only thing we have to fear is fear itself. Franklin D. Roosevelt
I once had a sparrow alight upon my shoulder for a moment while I was hoeing in a village garden, and I felt that I was more distinguished by that circumstance than I should have been by any epaulet I could have worn. Henry Thoreau
Do not speak of a rhinoceros if there is no tree nearby. African Proverb
The Capricorn full Moon happens on July 1 in the United States and July 2 in Australia. (For those who don't realise, the full Moon happens at the exact same moment all across the world, however, Australia is almost a day ahead of the US - I mention this as some people think we, in Australia, have the new and full Moons after the US - not so! It happens everywhere at the same moment in time - it's just that time measurements have Australia, and New Zealand, ahead of the UK and the US).
It seems that there's so much going on right now - like the energies have been ramped right up. We have the vote for marriage equality in the US, with some people threatening to set fire to themselves, or, as we saw in Australia, a conservative Christian couple threatening to divorce if the rights to gay marriage were enacted. It's been like a circus. It is always like a circus, but it feels like it's been ramped up. We have the situation in Greece, that will be interesting to watch. I wonder if they will leave the Eurozone and what that will mean in the long run. Of course, we have many, many other things happening. The TPP being introduced, for example. So many laws being introduced, most of which will have a detrimental effect on the people. Chiron on the 'Ten Commandments' degree is very telling, I feel :)
There are brilliant things going on now, though. Absolutely wonderful. We have the Venus/Jupiter conjunction trining Uranus AND we have the Moon's north node traversing the Super Galactic Center (SGC), which adds to the magic and mystery of this amazing time. More on this below...
