International Day of Peace - Sept 21

With all of this talk of war and bombing Syria I find it a bit ironic that we are coming up on the International Day of Peace. This was established in 1981 by the United Nations. According to their website: In 1981, the United Nations General Assembly, by unanimous vote, adopted Resolution 36/67 establishing the International Day of Peace (IDP) which stated in part, “…to devote a specific time to concentrate the efforts of the United Nations and its Member States, as well as the whole of mankind, to promoting the ideals of peace and to giving positive evidence of their commitment to peace in all viable ways.” The first Peace Day was celebrated in September 1982 on the opening day of the General Assembly. In 2002 the UN General Assembly officially declared September 21 as the permanent annual date for the International Day of Peace. It sounds terrific and a hopeful respite to the constant conflict we Earthlings always seem to find ourselves in. There are two hopeful astrological signs that day. One is the Pluto will finally be out of a retrograded position! YIPPEE - finally - maybe we will stop spinning our wheels and get out of that collective rut we have been in. The other is that Mercury will be in the sign of Libra - the sign of the mediator and it is in the 11th house - the house of group activities. Wouldn't it be nice to utilize that energy even if for a day! So remember to think peace on Sept. 21- and beyond. Speaking of peace and mediation check out a new book, "The Bridges of Death" by M.C.V Egan!
