I was sort of wondering if there would be a symbol that might in some way characterize what I’ve been going through of late. At A Railroad Crossing, An Automobile Is Wrecked By A Train is the oracle for 5° Cancer. Of course, metaphorically speaking, this is about “the tragic results which are likely to occur when the individual’s will pits itself carelessly against the power of the collective will of society;” this this symbol is far more fitting to the texting girl that slammed into our car even though it was the last in a long line of stopped vehicles that one could see (if she were looking at the road). Her bratty will and entitlement and total lack of compassion for her fellow beings could have had seriously tragic results for us, however it will be she who will clash with the collective as it seeks to protect us by way of righteous laws put in place. Dane Rudhyar speaks of the via negativa, the negative way of the mystic who learns via trials and tribulations. I can only hope that in the aftermath of this accident that this young woman experiences some kind of revelation about the real and karmic effects of selfish actions. For my part, I feel a readjustment of the karmic kind. Something was broken and released. I wish I wasn’t jumping and flinching at every sound or movement I hear while driving or even just walking down the avenue. I’m pretty clear on what I want to prioritize in my life and I have no time nor inclination to suffer fool people or situations.
