“In times of change the
learners will inherit the earth,
while the knowers will find themselves
beautifully equipped to deal
with a world that no longer exists.”
~ Eric Hoffer
I loved Eric Hoffer’s writings when I was a young adult and they have become even more powerful as an old adult. Which have you become, the learner or the knower? As I have said before, the art of staying young is based on your ability to lower your resistance to starting over. It is also wise to never retire. Change careers but never retire. It feels as if we are all being thrown into the starting-over pit. The pandemic has forced us to look at how we think, behave and act. It has done a wonderful job of exposing the dirt under the dirt, the lack of concern for large segments of our society and the intense fear of losing out. The castle walls have come up and the peasants are focusing on the meager scraps thrown over the wall.
For the next three years we can expect more deconstruction of systems that no longer work for those who are learning. The knowers will still be working on the world that no longer exists. It will cover all of our society. We will have struggles and more changes as those who know hang on to what they know. It is so obvious when you look at the health care of America–The broken system which allows the profit and corporate structure to be more important than the person. Look at the lack of broadband for our rural areas. Without it, these areas cannot thrive. The unemployed, the hungry citizens, the homeless, the broken justice system–where does it not touch our society? How about the elderly dying in nursing homes and not a street protest or “Old Lives Matter” chant. They continue to die in large numbers as I write this piece. Yet, there is no accountability for the nursing home owners. Why has there been not one protest against this cruel behavior? Can we act on what we have learned? Can we improve this horrendous situation? Do we care? Should we just put our old people out in the snow and let them die a “good death”? We protest “defund the police” but we don’t protest “our nursing homes are killing people”.
Yes, we have a new administration. Will it be willing to really initiate change? In the scheme of things, Trump was not to be elected on November 3rd. He had terrible transits in his chart that day. It also was a day that Mercury went stationary direct. Not favorable. On the day of the electoral college vote, he got the double whammy of an eclipse. He was to be gone. He is just taking his time leaving and trying hard to be true to his character of disruption. His chart is not showing a presidency in 2024 but it makes excellent PR and brings in money for attorneys as well as funds to back his projects. My guess is he will remain a celebrity figure in various media formats. His spell is broken and his followers will diminish over the next 3 years. That doesn’t mean roses going forward. There is much more change coming as Pluto stays in Capricorn until 2024. This is the year women will really take over with their power. You can see it coming. Women will have an intense period of power from 2024 to 2044 where it will be common to have woman in equal positions as men have now. She will have more control of the military, the police and the various government structures.
The big breakthrough came in December, 2020 when the planet Saturn left the sign of Capricorn after three intense years of corporate and government power. On top of that, in December, Jupiter, the planet of expansion and luck, also went into the sign of Aquarius. The conjunction of these two planets has not happened in 800 years. So this is big! It launches the changes of this new age and the power turning over to the people. It will gradually gather speed over the next 3 years but the launching in 2024 will have a very different set of circumstances in how we govern and who governs. By the end of the 20’s, new amendments will be added to the American Constitution. Be patient, be aware that change that lasts takes time. The pandemic wrecked havoc in our lives but also was a necessary evil for humans to realize how much they need each other and that unless we become more aware of “others”, we are doomed to exit early.
Here in America, we are learning that we have always been protesting. We were born protesting King George and we have continued to protest for our entire lives. We just don’t read much history so we think this is really terrible, awful and different. It isn’t. We all should be forced to relearn civics and our own American history. We are, as I have said before, in the middle ground of a nation going from barbarians to civilized. As we become more female led, we will see enormous change in our behavior and our thinking. As I write this piece, I am reminded again that most of our bombers here in the United States have been males. Over and over males, testosterone led, bomb the schools, the nightclubs, the shopping stores, hotels and more. There are many facets that bring this about but healing can’t begin until the female has taken more positions of power.
Let’s be learners. We need to consider what we know and move past it to what we must learn to bring about a future that can harmonize our differences. Let’s inherit the earth and be grateful we have been gifted with its care. Get involved, take constructive action and stop scaring ourselves. The world has not stopped. Activities may be delayed at this time but they are not denied. We are still above ground.
Thank you, as always, for your insights, so well expressed. Take care of yourself as you take care of your “patient”. We visited on phone (Bunnie (9) from SanAntonio), about your upcoming move – sounds like all was strenuous but now complete. Hope the condo is a safe haven. Take care. Bun
Dear Gail, Thank you for your post. I have been concerned for you.
Sending love and blessings to you and your husband from Western Australia.
Your insights and vision are always spot on and enlightening. Thank you for helping us to see a vision of what is to come but utilizing the stars and numbers. Much appreciated .
I was happy to see your post. Your break worried me as I knew you had much on your plate. Sending you strength and .best wishes.
Sending warm wishes for you and Richard. You are a remarkable woman. I always look forward to your wisdom, encouragement and knowledge in your postings.
As women begin to come into our power, let’s hope we can do it with grace, balance, and integrity.
Sending you love Gail as you write to
create new visions for us in your own transitions for your life and heart. I agree with you that the secret to thriving in life as it progresses, is embracing change!! Love and support to you both!
What makes you think with females in power that the world will be better. Hence, Nancy Pelosi.
How about electing those who are honest and ethical, who are grateful for all the good things this country has to offer instead of focusing on gender.
A Patriotic Female
I am sorry to hear about your husband.
I have not doubt that the election was stolen from Trump. He was reelected. You will hear about voter fraud for the next four years. There are many groups such as Judicial Watch who have been investigating voter fraud for years.
“When God is moving you toward a new awareness, you need to recognize the winds of change at once and move with them instead of clinging to what is already gone” (Marion Woodman)
The winds of change are blowing, but Pluto is not yet through with churning up the rot and corruption that infiltrates our political system like a sewer. And the Vedic system of astrology offers a bit of a twist on the day of the Inauguration: something given then taken away. Early celebrations may be short-lived 😉
I was an Ombudsman for a year and got to see our nursing care and assisted living centers first-hand. I could write a book about the abuse of the elderly and the selfish cultural mindset that chooses to “warehouse” its elderly because it is more convenient. Very different from cultures like the Japanese who consider it an honor to care for the grandparents. Even when a nursing home becomes a necessity, there isn’t a day that goes by that a relative or friend stops by to visit or take the resident to lunch or to the park or out shopping.
Gail, I am so relieved you are thriving. I thought about you and Richard all last week and hoped you were both ok. Sending you both reiki, prayer and much love. Peace and comfort be with you.
Goddess Bless you Gail! WOW and all this on your back during these astro times!!…things have quieted for me but we are being pushed out of our housing as soon as Newsome lifts the moratorium, so they can sell it as the market recently really has exploded on the south central cali coast; I have been on my own since i was 16; 8.5 years ago i had to become a caretaker for my last immediate family member, near ambulatory from a workplace fall, as she has aged the workplace refused to do anything more for her; broken pelvis/hip/ribs/benign brain tumour; yet she has good health and is mentally sharp; we turned it into a win win; I haven’t had one day off, I am her arms and legs but we are all human and the quarantine for me has pretty much been permanent-staying in gratitude for being able to facilitate working from home on another project is the only way I have muddled through all these years!! you WILL get thru all of this; I hope you and Richard will be available, readily, for each other through the transitions…..
Thank you Gail.. for all you give with so much going on personally. You and Richard are very much in our thoughts.. and lots of healing love flowing your way. There is much that is written concerning these times, but you say it best. Thank you on behalf of us all.
The bitter and the sweet – knowing Richard will be comfortable and well cared for. Grateful that heavy burden is now lifted from you physically but know your dear heart is always engaged., Blessings for a successfully recorded/closed Escrow and a wonderful new shiny path unfolding before you.
Thank for writing being transparent vulnerable which allows more Light to flood into your being. Many insights in your message -‘learned need for each other, what is important, etc.’ And many going within to discover a deeper soul presence – that is huge.. Love and blessings always, Rev PT
I’ve been keeping you and Richard in my prayers. I’m so sorry to hear all you’re going through, but I’m staying in hope for you. Congratulations on selling your home so quickly.
Thank you, as always, for your wonderful guidance of what’s ahead of us. I can’t tell you how many times thinking about how women will truly rise in power in 2024 sustains me through these many challenging times.
May blessings chase Richard and you down as we move into 2021. Sending a virtual hug to you both. Happy New Year!
I look forward to the changes in our world. I am guided by your insight and forecasts.
Praying for Richard’s protection.
Gail , Very sorry about your husband,
He is a very important part of your life,
Thank you for being there even in your time of need,
You are loved and appreciated.
I am chanting Nam Myoho Renge Kyo, sending daimoku to you and your husband. Nichiren says, “Nam Myoho Renge Kyo is like the roar of a lion. What illness can therefore be an obstacle?”
The Buddha says life for human beings consists of the 4 sufferings: birth, old age, sickness and death.
Through it all keep chanting Nam Myoho Renge Kyo and misfortune turns to fortune.
I am very sorry to hear about your husband. Times are challenging for so many people. Changes to deal with and still keep the head high and move on. The sad part is while people are dying in nursing homes and no one can be with them. So many have to dei alone. That is sad. I am very grateful for the electronics and the way we can connect with each other and still keeping our distance. All the best to you and your husband Gail. It seems like ages ago that you where at my house. I remember that so clearly, Wow. You where still living in the Chicago area. :)) Wishing you a good 2021
Dear Gail. Please give Richard a hug from me! I’m so fond of him … know you are both in Gods hands!
Thank you for this post! Truly insightful as always!
Thinking of you with love. May your path become lighter and more joyfilled! ❤️❤️❤️
I read with sadness about your husband. I am very sorry for you and your family. I sometimes wonder how a person with such light and inspiration for all has to experience such pain. And, I know the answer through your teachings, but still. This has been an unbelievably sad year, and I hope the next is not as dramatically awful. I look forward to 2024 when we can get past this stage and on to brighter futures. I think of my readings with you and learnings with you, and I am blessed. I am thinking positive thoughts for you my dear. Thank you again for this insight.
Thank you for sharing this. I enjoy reading your analysis of the times, future, etc. giving us all a great insight. Let’s be learners!! Thank you
It’s so good to read this post, Gail, and such good comments. You’ve been talking about 2024 for several years now, and when I get discouraged, I remember that. Wishing you all the best with Richard and the house. Here’s to a much-improved 2021 for all!
So grateful for you, Gail, and the wisdom you so beautifully share! Thank you!
Thank God! So grateful for you, Gail, and the wisdom you so beautifully share! Thank you!
Always love to here your thoughts ❤️ What a year it’s been for us all! Prayers and healing for dear Richard. Strength to you Gail, moving is never easy especially from somewhere you’ve lived a long time. I promise you will feel lighter Namaste
Thanks so much for your post. I was really looking forward to reading it.
Thanks for your wisdom and insight and thanks for sharing it with us.
Thank you, Gail, for continuing to learn and share what you are learning with us! I feel like the long-term view is a good perspective to give us a vision to aim towards!
Blessings to you,
You’ve had a rough time lately. My thoughts are with you. You have tremendous strength to bring this to us. For that we are all greatfull.
Blessings and love. Been there. Done that. Survived. So many transitions. You will be ok. Thanks for your work. And know that sharing it all helps. ❤️
I always liked school.
We are still above ground indeed! Thank you, as always, for your wise and studied insights into what’s REALLY happening in the world. I am always comforted when I read your blogs which serve as a reminder that there is an order to things even when they seem completely out of control. Sending good thoughts and gratitude your way.
Dear Gail, we have been missing you, your insight and words of wisdom, so it is wonderful to hear from you. We also knew that you have been dealing with your husband’s health issues and have felt that is why you have not weighed in on the ever changing situation taking place: the pandemic, the election and new president (thank God!). Welcome back and I wish you all the best as we move forward toward more enlightenment, better leadership, and better times. Take care and Happy New Year!
