There are stories that time tells, or trends built into the framework of time. Time, that is not linear, but rather composed of the character of a number of overlapping circle dances enacted by planets in our solar system.
If this seems far-fetched, readers should ask how it is then that time as we count it is itself the product of the earth's circle dance around the sun; and that our companion moon's dances around the earth impact not just the oceanic tide, but the mating dances of animals (and some humans), along with the menstrual cycles of female women (and other primates).
With that being said, the times are beginning to favor the sorts of changes that bring greater benefits to human beings and The Earth Mother. The era of armed patriarchal madness--recently on display as one govt. after another led by one warrior-moron after another--gave rise to massive wars, massive refugee problems, and immense environmental and climate-based problems. Obviously, unless humanity counts itself as followers of a new legion of Jim Jones characters, a major course correction is mandatory.
So U.K. sees the beginning shift in Jeremy Corbyn.
And Bernie Sanders gains traction in the U.S.
And Canada elects the young, promising Trudeau.
And Spain's rising Indignados elect a Socialist with some clout.
And Greece attempted to bring in a Leftist govt.
And in South America, many nations embrace practices and standards opposed to those of the reign of corporate dictators
The next 4-5 years will bring tensions to a head. For years I've gone on record stating that the end of 2020 looks to be a time of new global treaties, likely a global board of some sort arbitrating on key decisions... and it will NOT be the old guard protecting the (old) interests of a few at grave, grotesque expense (and exploitation) to the many.
Something very different will take shape and form... and it's heartening that evidence of this Shift is starting to show itself.
