Transformative Justice Strategic Science Justice Reader

Author: Adrienne

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): The Indian activist Gandhi led many peaceful rebellions against oppressive governments, first in South Africa and later in British-controlled India. At first he called his strategy "passive resistance," but later disavowed that term because it had negative implications. He ultimately chose the Sanskrit word satyagraha, meaning "love force" or "truth force." "Truth ('satya') implies love," he said, "and firmness ('agraha') is a synonym for force. 'Satyagraha' is thus the force which is born of truth and love." According to my reading of the astrological omens, Virgo, satyagraha should be your word of power in the coming weeks. Your uprising against the forces of darkness has got to do more than say "no." A fierce, primal yes should be at the heart of your crusade.

  1. Hi, i know this is a few years old but i’m wondering if the reader is still available?

    Thanks so much 🙂

  2. Hey Adrienne,

    I noticed the Transformatice Justice Strategic Science Fiction Reader hasn’t been available online via PDF recently and when I went to the online store to buy a copy thinking maybe it had been removed so y’all could get paid for your work (which is super valid) it said it was sold out. I was just wondering if there are going to be more copies made and available in the near future? I really enjoyed that reader and have been hoping to share it with more friends. Anyway, hope you’re having a week full of so much love and light.

    With care & kindred soul,
