Our vibration is being strongly affected by the current position of major planets. Uranus - the big powerful planet of unexpected events - is stationary which is a big deal in astrology: http://www.evolvingdoor.ca/lowdown/current/lowdowncurrent.htm.
I would pick Uranus going direct (stationary) as the ideal time to sneak in the GCR. It is taking advantage of a small window of calm before Uranus gets on the move again with its changeable chaotic energy.
The writer also refers to an important aspect - Saturn (karma) square Chiron (wounding and healing): 'Be aware that heavy feelings are probably being magnified by issues left over from old wounds not entirely healed. Don't beat yourself up, and don't beat up anyone else either.'
Thankfully there is the new moon among all this swirling chaos, bringing fresh energy and time to plan for the upcoming year. Let's make 2017 the best year planet Earth has ever known!

The best is in the Now.
