Root to Rise

Root to Rise Donna Taylor

I recently came across a saying: “We must root down in order to rise up.” That got me thinking about my own roots and how many of us are currently feeling uprooted. There is such little stability now in the outside world that we have to dig deep and discover what is truly important to us and how we can create some sense of stability in a planet that rocks on its axis. With Uranus in Taurus and Pluto in Capricorn, stability and security are going to be increasingly harder to find externally, so we must turn within and make sure our own foundations are strong. How can we do that?

First, avoid succumbing to fear. This is the biggest challenge that we all face now, because we are constantly bombarded by messages and images that draw us into a fearful state. The world as we knew it is collapsing, probably because it was based on shaky foundations that did not emphasize fairness, love, sharing, compassion, or kindness. Instead, the foundations were built on greed, dominance, power, and control. We can take solace in knowing that the old ways are on their way out, but it will take time for the new world to be constructed. In the meantime, we need to have faith that this new, better world will come to be. Try not to let fear get a hold, and keep yourself strong through a sense of faith and the belief that the universe has your back.
