A Purple Retreat

There is a lot of change and excitement in the air, and for those of you who need a breather, here is a calm spot for contemplation and rejuvenation. A few deep breaths among the trees and flowers should do the trick. There are comfortable seats under the umbrella and if you need any refreshment, let me know. I will deliver. I received some very good news from the Middle East today but before I tell you all about it, a peaceful moment is a sound plan.

Ohhhh, flowers, a feast. I'll take a short siesta on the green leaf under the purple umbrella, if that's alright with everyone. Just nudge if I take up too much room.

Bliss. :-)

Good news... hmm... I see that Saudi Arabia is quietly moving towards various "open door" reforms, equality for women, improved public education, etc. The age of Oil and oppressive patriarchy is ending, and a new age is about to begin. That all sounds like good news to me! Good reason to relax as well.

Neo, you're just the one to appreciate this. So glad you stopped by. I'm gathering more information, but an associate of mine just got back from Israel and there are big things going on, especially in terms of Saudi Arabia, the big surprise.

The peace talks are closer than we think and there are pow wows going on for the first time in history. Apparently Syria is in, and Lebanon seems to the only problem.

He told me that Israel is flying high and there is a mood on the streets of optimism about the Palestinians especially. The new Israeli leader has a Sun and Moon in Libra which is very interesting. A lot of people have a lot to gain if this can be accomplished.

We don't know at all what's happening because the news is controlled, but my sense is this. Pluto in Capricorn is going to be about drawing boundaries with fairness to the parties involved. It looks like Israel is ready and the acceptance of the country's existence might finally be here. I think there is going to be a serious effort to stabilize the area, and the results could manifest when Saturn transits Libra. Whether it happens or not, time can only tell.

My feeling is that its now economically advantageous to make peace agreements.

Of course the whole thing could continue as is or blow up into something bigger, but the people are ready.
We have to consider that Iraq is blowing a gasket after so many years of occupation and this, too. will wind down naturally.

It just makes so much sense. Capricorn and boundaries.
My friend is going to keep me updated with information from Israel so I will pass it along.

The main thing is the will and momentum on this. It's in the front of everyone's mind, as people want to be free to enjoy the good things in life like we do here.

There's no doubt that the world of Islam is in revolution out of anyone's control, and I think the leadership is becoming aware of the need to modernize pretty quickly.

I don't know the details, but apparently Israel wants to create an official country for the Palestinians who have always been homeless and were persecuted by the Arabs too. It's simply a case of negotiating the borders.

Similar to Iraq who is getting free from foreign domination and they both need help getting established. If stabilizing these places would improve the economics, they'll do it. Pluto in Capricorn is also about economic reform in a big way.

I suppose the question is whether it's more profitable to keep wars going, or to have peaceful commodity exchange. We shall see. The ME has always been the economic crossroads of the world. Lots of money, lots of conflict.
