Just like two years ago, right now we have the planets doing a Busby Berkeley choreographed dance!
As with then, I got to viewing the celestial dance from the vantage point of someone outside the system, 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. This time it’s a little different than it was then, with the planets “twizzling” like Olympians on ice as two turn from looking back to looking forward just as two others turn from looking forward to looking back, all together in a cosmic square dance.
Pluto moving slowly forward in the outermost ring of the dance, a tiny explosive dervish beginning a long term slowdown, looking over, under, and sideways at a simultaneous past and future.
Neptune just beginning to speed up, a giant fog of a tidal wave still moving slowly, cutting a vast wake as it rolls forward through the mists to hear a call.
Uranus turned on its side moving a little faster than Neptune, accelerating its pace, a royal wild goose 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 as it hears the Sermon on the Mount.
Jupiter slowly turning to face a race, pace quickening every day, a massive laughing whale gliding through the cosmos opening new ironic 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 to find a life it forgot to look for.
Venus, having lagged back for the holidays to dance with Pluto in a precisely crazy way, now turned to the future and racing across the dance floor preparing to touch the others at breakneck speed.
Mercury, slowly dervishing in a fogged traffic jam the past month, now begins to glide back across steps it’s already made, putting out forest fires while quickening for the race to the fracturing at the last dance before the next dance.
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!
