Oprah? President?

loco_aubrey
No. I don't want any more celebrity presidents. I want a president with the political knowledge and background to help us get out of this mess.

If Oprah wants to run for president, then she should. But I believe she is smart enough to know that being president isn't the best way to help change the direction and consciousness of our nation. In her current position, Oprah can do more good than she would if she got entangled in the tendrils of shady dealings and collective bad karma that is known as the U.S. Federal Government.

No, Oprah should not run for president because she is one of the best communicators and one of the most generous people this country has and I think anybody that gets involved with politics is out for power. I think there is more involved in it than just the good will she tends to show. She does a better job with what she's doing.

Oprah should not run for president. The political arena would restrict her ability to influence the social network in our culture.  Her business involvement in a variety of media and her economic power allows her to lobby for the people. Politics would redirect her energy away from many of her great causes and stifle her candid rhetoric.

Forty Years of Good Times

When I came on board as the publisher of Good Times a year ago, the lease was up at the office where the paper had resided for nearly 20 years, and a move to new offices was imminent.

 

Pluto Retrograde, Aries New Moon, Lyrid Meteor Showers

As the Lyrid meteors, radiating from the star Vega in the Harp constellation, begin showering heaven and earth with light, Pluto, planet of transformation (or die) turns stationary retrograde (Thursday, April 16), 15 degrees Capricorn. Retrogrades have purpose, allowing humanity time to review, reassess, research and reinvent while returning to previous situations. Retrogrades are times of inner activity, seeds sown in bio-dynamically prepared soil. Pluto retrograde is the most serious and resolute of retrogrades—a pure tincture, or, as in homeopathy, a “constitutional” touching the essences of all that matters. Pluto offers deep insight into confusion or puzzlement and areas where transformation is still incomplete. It’s valuable to have one’s astrology chart to follow what area of life the major planets— especially Saturn, Uranus, Neptune and Pluto—are influencing. These outer planets have long-term and lasting effects on our psyche, inner/outer life events, how people see us and how we see and process our world. Pluto, retrograde for five months (until Sept. 24) offers deep earthquakes of change, awakens humanity to the task of building (Capricorn) the new culture and civilization, flailing our inner world about, deepening us until we transform and do things differently. Pluto is an unrelenting teacher. New moon (29 Aries) is Saturday, April 18. With the personality-building keynote, “Let form again be sought.” Mars anchors the new creative fires of Aries into our world. The New Group of World Servers participates together in the new moon festival, while also preparing for the Taurus Wesak, Buddha Full Moon Festival (May 3). Join us everyone.
