Right now we have the planets doing a Busby Berkeley choreographed dance!
I got to thinking yesterday, and here's what I saw in my mind's eye from the vantage point of being an observer on this beautiful ball of dirt we call Earth.
Pluto moving forward at normal speed in the outermost ring of the dance, a tiny explosive dervish beginning a long term slowdown.
Neptune just beginning to speed up a little, a giant fog of a tidal wave still moving slowly, but cutting a vast wake as it rolls forward.
Uranus turned on its side moving a little faster than Neptune, accelerating its pace, headed for a collision with Pluto down the line.
Saturn turning, turning, turning, ready to retrace its steps, a giant stone monolithic dervish, like a grind wheel in motion standing still.
Jupiter accelerating forward, pace quickening every day, a massive whale gliding through the cosmos opening new views with every push of its tail.
Mars just finished turning, turning, turning in circles, now moving ever slower, slower, slower, stopped in the middle of the road about to retrace the steps it's already taken.
Venus racing forward, having danced with and touched each of these at breakneck speed, ready to slow down when it hooks up with Jupiter.
Mercury quickening for the next two weeks after which it will slow, ready to turn, turn, turn and glide back across unoccupied areas at the point when Venus dances with Jupiter.
And the Sun ever shining, enlightening each of these in the right way and time as it moves through the Galaxy, dancing with Sirius to the backdrop of millions of Fixed Stars.
Since we also do these movements in harmony with All-That-Is, let's dance!
