I love the parable of Plato’s Cave. It shows just how long the controllers of this world have had a vice on our minds. Plato died in 348 BCE. If he was writing about it in his lifetime, it had to have been going on quite some time before that. He says that the people in this cave do not desire to leave their prison; for they know no better life. The people who are enlightened or have “woken up”, understand what this story is all about.
Plato begins by saying “Imagine a cave where people have been imprisoned since birth”. Right off the bat Plato is pointing to the human race. He says the prisoners are chained so they can only look forward. Here he is showing how from the time of birth we are told what to think and how to think. The chains are the chains on the mind. The people behind the prisoners put on a puppet show. This is a perfect analogy for what even goes on today. Television makes it so much easier for the leaders of this world to put their puppet show on. Make no mistake, that is exactly what it is, a puppet show for the masses. The prisoners naming the things before them is showing that this goes on in every culture. What one culture may call a game soccer, another culture will call it football. Plato says “The truth to the prisoners would be nothing more than the shadows of the puppets”. Just like today, the truth to people is only what they are told by our puppet show masters.

Astro Facts: The 19th of December Mercury turned retrograde, less than 1 degree before the exact conjunction with Pluto in Capricorn. Mercury will be retrograding Capricorn, and getting back into Sagittarius for few days. This retrograde transition will last 3 more weeks. Sun is now in Capricorn, along with Pluto and Mercury: end of the year. Mars is now in Pisces, along with Neptune and Chiron.
This is an interesting way to leave 2016 and start a new year.
Mercury was conjunct to Pluto, and less than a degree before the exact conjunction, it turned retrograde on the 19th of December, 2016.
As some people already know, Mercury retrograde is a time to slow the pace of our activities and re-think, re-assess, reflect and re-evaluate our choices and actions.
With Mercury retrograde, important decisions deserve more time for being evaluated, while every-day experiences deserve assimilation and calmed observation. It is a time for grounding our perceptions. For appreciating the things we normally don’t.
