Our Great Ocean

 

 

The Shimmering Jewel of Life

It is beautiful, sustaining, intriguing and fearsome.

The ocean is the life-giving force of our planet.  Earth is
called the Blue Planet for this reason.

Often taken for granted, the ocean is the greatest resource we have—it’s vast blue body teeming with organisms from microscopic zooplankton to the behemoth blue whale.  Planet Earth’s greatest mystery and uncharted wilderness, it is the primoridal soup of whence all life– and us– came.

The richest sources of biodiversity on Earth are found in both the tropical rainforests and the ocean.  All surface life depends on life inside and beneath the ocean.  Sea life provides all of our fresh water, half of our oxygen, regulates our climate, and is essential for providing our food.

Without the oceans, we would perish.  In the truest sense, we are all citizens of the sea.

    It’s a fitting set of images as we enter the Age of Aquarius, called an “air” Sign but is all about water.

      -Aquarius pours water from a jug, which reminds me of your energy Stephen. You’re always trying to “pour” your knowledge onto other people. I think some people see this as long-winded arrogance at times Steve, but suzy understands, you don;t mean it that way. You have what i see as a calling to “drench” everyone with this knowledge/water . . . which at another level i realize as nothing less than love Carry on :-)

    Yer right, suzy. I is compelled by my Aquarius sun and rising Signs to pour out the Living Waters information on the heads of everyone under the sun. Whether they like it or not everyone needs a little rain on their parades sometimes. I sporadically carry an umbrella at all times myself..
