Bastille Day

No words. Or, a few. I am waiting to hear news back from a family friend holidaying there. It is so sad when the usual Full Moon volatility seems to now equate with this sort of event. Love & prayers to all affected. More soon.

Hello Mystic, hope you and yours are ok. I just wanted to say, I just renewed my subscription this morning, having lapsed due to cash flow for about 3 months, but other than that, a subscriber since 2012. Not that I am skint as such, but every spare penny is going back into a little creative business idea, and I just got married, and I changed my bank account and name and email and yada yada, total admin fatigue as every damn bureaucratic thing needed to be amended in some way, including signing up to your excellent site again. I… Read more »

Hi Mystic, sorry to be impatient but wondering how the “Scheduler” is going? This whole volatility Full Moon had me wondering. I think the energy stepped in sooner that we liked but does this mean the 19/20th will be worse?

I’m exhausted with the strong pull of anxiety since April.

xo!

I don’t mean to sound like a wanker, but I think when we focus on the tragedy and horror we magnify it, leaving us weak and frightened. Let’s increase loving connections by laughing with children on the street, touching each other on the arm in a blessing as we pass by. Smile and make eye contact, share an intimate moment (not sexual – heart) with a stranger… Treat every person you encounter as someone you deeply care about, even if you don’t know them yet. That’s how I take my power back. By increasing the love in MY world. It… Read more »

Ali, Hear hear!! And to kind curiosity about others. The morning after Nice, we had a parade in the small town which borders my larger city. We were stunned from Dallas, from Baton Rouge. From unbridled power and mayhem. And from folks freaking at who’s peeing next to them. After the parade, my teen and I refueled at a coffee shop and I went to use the bathroom. There was a line- for the two unisex one- person bathrooms. As people exited, they greeted those waiting. Several moms and grandmas with children waited with me. All of a different ethnicity… Read more »

A few days ago the car in front of me, for some ungodly reason reversed into me. He started a left hand turned, stopped then reversed back into me. At first thought it was just cosmetic damage, the a day later found he had wrecked the radiator and heating lines with his towbar i spose. Prob 2K of damage when it seized at traffic lights. Five young boy people and a woman with same respiratory problem as me saw me gasping for breath handed me her ventolin, the boys moved the car out of traffic and calling the RAA for… Read more »

Still alive and kicking, AnkhRising8.0, thanks for your concern. I’m in North Cyprus, under the aegis of Turkey but not under the Turkish regime, thankfully. The violence has not affected us, at least yet. I think it might scupper the peace talks between North Cyprus and South Cyprus but, how knows, it might have the opposite affect (being Libran and Libra Rising!). Islam here is very laissez-faire and the Turkish-Cypriots are very opposed to any attempt to impose a more rigid Islam on the country. It’s really very laid back here – you wear what you like, pretty much do… Read more »

Heart wrenching….. Orlando, Texas, France… innocent people bring killed because no one cares. Time to load up. Luckily local police are setting up training sessions on how to deal with terrorists. Which means more is coming.

Get yourself armed!! Protect your family.

Jen Scorpio

Isn’t part of the problem that the people who did this had access to guns? And then the shootings in Texas, they armed themselves took the law into their own hands. Is that the world you really want? I do not want that sort of world. No, do not arm yourself, do not load up. There are many countries around the world who see that having an armed populace that has the right to bear arms is an anathema to a civil society, a view which I happen to share. Gun laws do not work on their own, there are… Read more »

Writer Anne Lamott just posted the most incredible response to the Bastille Day attack in France on Facebook. I’d like to quote what she said here, as it makes just so much more sense than guns, more guns: By Anne Lamott on Facebook, 8 hours ago (15 July 2016): “Life has always been this scary here, and we have always been as vulnerable as kittens. Plagues and Visigoths, snakes and schizophrenia; Cain is still killing Abel and nature means that everyone dies. I hate this. It’s too horrible for words. When my son was seven and found out that he… Read more »

“Un-negotiated compassion force” love that! Lamott is great; thanks for posting, Dark side. I live in between a few small towns & I’ve noticed that whenever something terrible happens nationally or on the world stage, people in these little towns are kinder to each other, more eye contact & smiles. Like the tragedy shook us all awake to what really keeps us strong & safe: acknowledging our humanity & having compassion for each other. I hope everyone finds this true in their neighborhoods; if not, I hope you will be the first light-bearer in your corner of the world. Set… Read more »

I adore Anne Lamott! Her book Traveling Mercies saved my life.. Agreed, more guns is definitely NOT the answer….ugh! Gun control now! …..what I’m worried about though is weapons that are easily purchased outside of the law online on the deep web, or dark web, or whatever they are calling it now.. Anyway… There was a post from the Dalai Lama regarding all the recent violence saying Prayer is not Enough….. I’m sure many of you have seen it…. Honestly, it isn’t enough right now. We need to get real, and come together in peace somehow in a concrete way.… Read more »

Thank you so much for posting this! I love Anne Lamott. Her posts on FB are always deeply compelling (but for some reason stupid FB algorithms are hiding her posts from me lately)

Really VE?? Innocent people aren’t being killed because nobody cares. Innocent people are being killed because of fear and ignorance and an ancient cycle of hate (caused by fear and ignorance).
Comments like this really annoy me.
Humanity is in a really terrible state, mother nature is in a really terrible state and people like you think we need to “load up” with even more arms???????

It is a sad day!! Pray that things will get better. Whatever you believe please pray for that. Think of those humans that were taken from their beautiful life because of anger.

It is do painful to see those families suffering right now.

Jupiter, you are so flippin’ right. I have told myself I am done. There is no protection. Law Enforcement is being demolished, terrorists are killing and we have nowhere to go.

That’s the hashtag I used last night because the violence at this point is so tiring, #nowords. I have a friend vacationing in Portugal and Spain and was scared for him as well.

There are no words. Unimaginable. Aching for many idyllic weekends at the beach near Nice and Cannes in a magical summer. I kept my top on- scared of permanent sunburn on tender parts. Undercurrents of: the other, the beauty of the water and air, so gorgeous. But there were surface rifts that deepened over time. I was fortunate to speak “good” French, enjoyed their approval and privilege of white Catholic girl. I was not seen as “other” so was blessed with kindness and hospitality. All of us speak from our hearts, and yes, our experience is informed from our status-self.… Read more »

By the way, my dad has just had half his face removed because of cancer. My stepdad has just been diagnosed with terminal cancer. 2-3 months… So, let’s not get all micro or political about where our love and compassion goes, okay? It’s all really, really sad. And our love flows everywhere. It’s all relevant, impersonal and tremendously personal. We’re all human so let’s be on the side of love. X

Exactly – love flows everywhere, When my daughter asks if i love the new baby more than her I tell her that with each new need for love, love expands. caring about one thing and talking about it does not preclude caring about other things too.

My daughter and her first love broke up on yesterday- on hours before the horrors of Bastille Day. The sheer pain on those young faces- and no villains, just open hearts, hard conversations, the process of separating. It was prep for the unfathomable- but still so raw. Feeling Uranus in my 6th already- on that SN.

AnkhRising8.0

Wow such synchronicity… yes, the process of separating. With or without a villain, or loss of life, it hurts & we open up… to receive what grows there. Your layers were already peeled back when you heard of the attack. Yes: raw.

What about Sudan? What about white farmer genocide in South Africa? What about hotel shootings in Mogadishu? What about The Hague ruling on South China Sea, and China not giving a shit? What about Zimbabwe’s 231 million percent inflation rate and its 90% unemployment rate? By highlighting certain things, we’re not forgetting about the other very important things that deserve attention. What’s going on in the US reflects a deep-seated internal US problem fuelled by homegrown racism/lack of respect, coupled with lack of gun control gone BERSERK. It is a massively important issue. #BlackLivesMatter #AllLivesMatter However, if Mystic had to… Read more »

Agreed… except the All Lives Matter hash tag. It’s a white supremacist diversion tactic.

softscienceMM Member

Whether it’s meant in a positive ‘unity’ way or not, it undermines the focus on black lives and a lot of people find it hurtful for that reason.

Yes, the all lives matter hashtag is very racist. So painful to see meaningful change derailed in this way.
All lives can only matter when black lives matter.

There are plenty of other forums you can go to and post your take on current world events if you feel their airing and your opinion on them is that important.

This is Mystics site not a generic current events blog.

This is the first place I go everyday. I find it inspiring and often a solace from other events whether personal or global.

Thank you Mystic for a beautiful site.

Glad your friend is safe.

Me too Keelkeel.. I love Mystic’s writing and find this site to be generally inspiring, fascinating & encouraging. I love how the topics range from hair to global finances to astro-celebs to in-depth astro studies etc etc and is full of beautiful art and amazing commenters (generally).

Bea

Yes, it would be wonderful to have your perspective on #blacklivesmatter too Mystic. Even here in Australia it has us all filled over with grief and fear, somehow there is a shaking out of apathy and threads of hope tied in somewhere there too. It is quite something. Thinking on it is tearful.

I’m sure this has more of a personal reason for grasping your attention at the moment though. No one should pull you to any issue how ever powerful when your heart calls you so strongly to this. I hope your friend is safe.
