Hi Maria,

Yes, I don't know why it works exactly, but if nothing else studying Astrology will tell you more about the competing energies within yourself than a lifetime of psychotherapy ever could. The further one goes into it, the more complex and subtle the interplay becomes.

I also wouldn't expect a major shift to be smooth. These kinds of changes are likely to threaten many powerful interests and they will not go quietly. To me that goes in some way towards explaining much of what is already happening. It's a desparate last grab for power to stem the changes they themselves see on the horizon. Many ordinary people will retreat into fear without understanding the nature of what frightens them and thus side with the prevailing power.

I qualified my matriarchy statement by saying non-agrarian, should the population plummet and technology be destroyed it may be that the world would revert to ancient matriarchies as the best approach to survival.

A novel I read some years ago, A Canticle for Leibowitz, began in a dark ages after some sort of cataclysm, scattered monasteries hide sacred remnants of previous learning, bits of technology that are either not understood or for which there is no context for using. I recall that one center has a cache of light bulbs lovingly preserved. The world isn't a matriarchy per se, more like pre-medieval Europe although mostly desert. But people are decidedly anti-technology because of what it had wrought, thus the need for the monasteries to secretly preserve the knowledge of the past. As the novel progresses society does along with it until it reaches a kind of post WWII technological world, at which time there is another cataclysm that destroys everything all over again. Perhaps there is nothing new under the sun.

For now I'll hold out for real spiritual progress not necessarily requiring absolute disaster to come to pass.
