FROM THE ETHERS
I worked a message service last week in Cassadaga Spiritualist Camp and in lieu of doing a meditation, I spoke about the year 2020. I didn’t carry on about the election or Covid-19. I took a look at the bigger picture to include numerology and astrology. I dabble in both. I feel it makes me a well-rounded individual.
So, 2020 is a 22, which is a master number. Twenty-two signifies master builder, so when I look at 2020 I believe that we have been building this whole year and will continue to build until 2021, which is a five. Five is about change.
Now, let’s bring in astrology here. I know I have written this a many of times throughout the year. We are in the Aquarian Age, which is about love, peace, harmony. You may ask why is this not happening today? The fact is it takes quite a few years to truly come out of the previous age, which was the Piscean Age. Characteristics of this age include money, power, control, all lower level vibrations.
At the message service, I knew several people who had come to get a message. One person who I fondly refer to as Santa – yes, he looks just like him with the white beard and small framed spectacles – asked, ‘Are you going to tell us to get out and vote now?’ My response: ‘No, I would never do that.’
Backstory: Speaking of voting. In my younger years, I decided I didn’t care to vote or get mixed up in politics. I truly didn’t think my vote mattered, and then when the newly elected official did not do well, I could say I didn’t vote for that person. My father-in-law, a staunch newspaper man, said since I didn’t vote, I don’t get a say.
I still disagree to this way of thinking. We do live in America and have the right to choose our beliefs and voice them. Of course, we can disagree with one another. The issue that really comes out here is that some people believe that if we disagree, we cannot be friendly to one another.
It has not been easy to stay neutral on so many levels. I too am a reporter. I worked as a staff writer for several years, but tired of the politics. I became a freelance writer, worked at that for 20 years and became what I like to say, ‘Good News Lori.’
This is not the same world that my father-in-law worked in. I have to truly wonder what he would think of the media today. I’m sure that is one area we would agree on. The ordinary person doesn’t get that when you are a reporter, you are to report the news without bias. When you are a columnist, you get to insert your opinions. Regardless, opinions of the publisher and/or owner, those in control, bleed into the coverage.
Guess what? As for my analysis of 2020, 2021, the Aquarian Age and the Piscean Age, it’s up to you to decide which is less than and which is for our highest and best. We will continue on regardless of the outcome. We will do the best that we can with what we have. It’s what I do. I keep moving and striving for my highest best.
Many Blessing of Peace and Love!
