December Forecast

Stop identifying with the world created by your mind, and a new world will open up before you.   – Amma

This is the first time in all of 2009 that all of the outer, collective planets are direct. Can you feel the speed?

Life is poised to get mighty wonky this month, so fasten your seat belts. Mars will go into reverse gear on December 20th, sending you right off the rails just before Christmas.
