Should Health Care Be Rationed? It Already Is

Philip Caper, Bangor Daily News: “Opponents of universal health care often claim that in order to afford it we will have to ration health care. My response to that old shibboleth is that we already pay more than enough to cover everybody, and that we already ration health care, as we must in a world of finite financial and real resources.”

A short update on the energies

Thank you Aisha!

aisha north

As you have perhaps noticed, the incoming flux of energy will start to interact with your own energetic field in all sorts of ways. Some of them may be noticeable in the usual manner, such as physical reactions in varying degrees of discomfort, while others may be more subtle and not so noticeable in your everyday life. But if you take time to tune in – and we do mean that in a very literal sense, we venture to guess that you will all sense a change of tune within.

For these energies bring in a very new set of frequencies, and to a trained ear, they will sing to a very different tune than the ones you have been accustomed to hearing up until now. And when we say ear, we are not referring to that outer aperture, designed to take in those outside noises generated by natural and…

The Oracle Report | Tuesday, May 20, 2014

Disseminating Moon Phase: opening, sharing, communication

Moon in Aquarius

Ruling Mahavidya: Bhuvaneshvari (The World Nurse) and Tara (The Rescuer)

Skill: honey bee (find the sweetness in life)

Negative Imprint: putting up barriers

Positive Imprint: opening to bounty

The energetic slingshot of Mars’ release back to forward motion puts us in new territory today. No matter where we find ourselves mentally, emotionally, or physically, we will practice the shamanic skill of being like the honey bee and finding the sweetness of life.

More than likely, the shamanic skill of being like a honey bee will require hardy spiritual warriors since today is also a Black Moon Day. The Moon remains in Aquarius, affecting the Black Moon in Leo. Our shadow sides continue to present themselves (and this means other people’s shadow sides present themselves, too). Black Moon days can feel dark and heavy, but we know that they are about regeneration and rebirth. We remember that we grow stronger from the cycles of the Black Moon. We seek the light and find it all around us in nature.

The energy challenges us not to put up barriers or shut down, especially if we are reeling from changes that are happening in our lives. If we are not letting go of the past, it makes today harder.

Reunions are trying to occur. This includes all kinds of reunions between people, places, and things. We have the vantage point of seeing these things in a new way. Unusual clarity is provided. Remember that the whole time Mars has been retrograde we have had the opportunity to see where we put our energy, time, and resources and the ways we want to change this so that it is more sustainable and nurturing. We are often tested with this when a planet stations direct. Stand up or show up for yourself.

As mentioned, the day a planet stations direct is like a slingshot effect. Things tend to be chaotic. When the planet Mars stations direct, aggression and quick tempers can result. Patience is necessary. Being like the honey bee and maintaining the singular mission of finding and experiencing the sweetness in life (finding beauty and fun) keeps us centered and sane in the midst of the chaos.

This is the end of today’s report. An addendum is offered for readers who wish to delve further.

Recall that the energetics in place for this lunar month (the month that began with the New Moon in Taurus on April 29) indicated that:

“As a whole, this month we are crossing new boundaries with a heavy load, using different lenses of perception. After we hear a wake-up call, a call to action, or a call to devotion, we observe the patterns and themes of the energy and ultimately unite with our spiritual comrades. The entire month’s energy intends a “nexusing” of people – putting people together, putting people in the places they need to be, and connecting/reconnecting people who have work to do together (including work at the level of the soul).”

Recall also the opening lines for that day’s Oracle Report:

“The New Moon in Taurus/Solar Eclipse begins today at the degree of ‘a red cross nurse.’ Pause for a moment and take time to check how you respond to this image. What is the first thing you think of with ‘a red cross nurse?’ What kind of imagery accompanies it in your mind’s eye? Our individual response to the symbol says a great deal about what this energy will be like for us over the next month.”

Consider how you thought about the red cross nurse then and how you do now. It seems like it was a long time ago, doesn’t it?

Now we have “crossed into new territory.” We are at new places in our lives and we see things with “new lenses of perception.” Be gentle with yourself as you acclimate. Be gentle with others as they try to acclimate. It will take some time to take in the full panorama.

If needed, continue the conversation with Bhuvaneshvari and/or Tara, who are right alongside us all month long.
