Lyrics: Passenger – Scare Away the Dark

“Well, sing, sing at the top of your voice. Love without fear in your heart. Feel, feel like you still have a choice if we all light up we can scare away the dark. We wish our weekdays away, spend our weekends in bed, drink ourselves stupid and work ourselves dead. And all just because that’s what mom and dad said we should do.”

Monkey Mind” is a Buddhist term which describes the persistent churn of thoughts in the undisciplined mind. Criticism. Fear. Judgment. It is self-absorbed, self-centered and very self-conscious about how “I” appear to others and what “I should” do to protect and take care of “me, myself and I.” Unsettled. Restless. Capricious. Whimsical. Fanciful. Inconstant. Confused. Indecisive. Uncontrollable. It is time for Monkey Mind to take a little trip to Heaven.

The monthly ritual of “new beginnings and good intentions” occurs on July 26th at 6:43pm (EST). Sun and Moon merge @ 3 Leo. The Sun rules Leo, at home in the natural 5th House of children, falling in love and Soul inspiration. Time to shine! Jupiter (Divinity) and the Sun (Soul Essence) sit down together to make a toast on July 24th. The Sun is bigger than Jupiter. Don’t jump the gun. Mars enters Scorpio the same day as the New Moon. The answer to the question everyone is holding their breath for is “who is going to be the first to take action to stop the fighting?” Doesn’t matter who started it. How do we bring about peaceful resolution personally, locally and globally? The focus for the next 29 days is “how will my actions today help create peace on Earth?

Monkey Mind goes to Heaven. Optimism. Buoyancy. Good Ju-Ju! Take action. Holistic philosophy is the perfect delusion for anyone who, all decked out in the latest fashion, loves to talk about solving the problems of the world but has no intention of sweating a drop in achieving this noble goal. That’s Monkey Mind for you. Mars has spent the last eight months is balance-leaning Libra. This time has been spent (hopefully) learning to trust Self. Time to turn the tables as Mars covers ground quickly to make a meeting with Mr. Responsibility- Father Time, aka Saturn, on August 26th at 17 Scorpio.

The New Moon square Mars is asking “how does my behavior affect others and how do they see me?” Actions and words are echoed back to us quickly now!  Expect to get a true measure of one’s own integrity as well in the coming weeks. Mars reveals much to each of us. We are all learning to get along now and it is important that you can trust yourself to do what we each KNOW to do. If you do not, the road ahead will become bumpy. Think back to August 2012. Remember? Potentials are being fulfilled in all directions and we each need to take note of our own circumstances, our own lives and decide what potentials we want to see fulfilled in the coming months. Yes, everyone has something to contribute! Participate in life please!

“We should run through the forest. We should swim in the streams. We should laugh, we should cry, we should love, we should dream. We should stare at the stars and not just the screens. You should hear what I’m saying and know what it means. To sing, sing at the top of your voice. Love without fear in your heart. Feel, feel like you still have a choice, if we all light up we can scare away the dark.”

We’re over halfway through 2014, the Year of Spiritual Growth. This New Moon signals a turning point of courage, Sheroism, determination, endurance and lion-heartedness where Leo resides in your own chart. If you find yourself complaining about or criticizing others I would encourage you to take this 21-day challenge (click here). For the Pluto in Leo Generation (June 1939 – June 1958) Jupiter will be activating an old dream in the next year. Remember that revolution you were waiting for back in the 60’s? Trust your intuition!

Uranus Pluto and Venus are creating a “push-pull” dynamic. Embrace this “push-pull” as it is asking everyone to test their Intuition. New chapter in Life.  Discernment. Do you listen to that part of yourself? I sure hope so! Monkey Mind stresses us out. With intuition one is never rushed, stressed or hurried. I would encourage everyone to tap into this new form of communication called Intuition. It keeps Monkey Mind calm. Soothing. Refreshed. Relaxed. As a whole we’ve never been here before. We’ve spent 9 very long months gestating Intuition and now we give birth during the New Moon. Flex your “intuitive muscle.

Globally: The USA has some speed bumps ahead. Whistle-Blowers. The truth will be revealed when the public is ready to receive it. In a recent global poll it was revealed that the global majority believes the USA is the greatest threat to peace on this planet. Ouch!  The American public is going to experience some home-truth Revelations (September & October) that will surprise many. Do your own research to answer your questions. Pay attention over the next few months. Would you believe me if I told you that there will come a day when BIG corporations will be competing to be the MOST transparent and outdo one another with good deeds and goodwill for humanity? Hard to believe, but these times, they are a changin’! White Moon Selene just entered Capricorn on July 17th, the day after Jupiter entered Leo. She’s going to activate the potent Cardinal Cross energies during the October Eclipses. Watch for “small” signs in the coming weeks.

Personally: Welcome to the beginning. Confluence of consciousness. Please ask your Intuition to reveal itself. You will NOT be disappointed. How often do you practice and play with your Intuition? Look for good news when you play and practice. Monkey Mind will get used to playing in Heaven. Once you start playing you are going to begin to notice an amazing thing – - Serendipity and Synchronicity. Two powerful tools in your arsenal of non-self-protection.  They guide us when we trust selfIntuition is the Divine God-Spark of Knowledge that KNOWS. Use generously, especially over the next two weeks. Practice. Practice. Practice!

37-flower-wallpapersOur “point of view” about “self” is morphing. Clarity. Do not allow Snake Oil Salesmen to sell you a line of bull-shit or pander to personal instant-self- gratification. Think for yourself. TRUST YOURSELF! Pay particular attention to anyone selling something that promises wealth, health or beauty without putting forth any effort. They profit.  We are learning to set Monkey Mind free and rely on Divine Tools, and that includes sacrifice or effort of some type. Every element of Western Culture is geared to provide maximum short-term self-gratification, while many of those who fail to be gratified view themselves as victims. We are each a small part of the Collective Whole. Participation with the Divine is not the path to personal power. The question is “how am I contributing to peaceful resolution on my home planet? How does my behavior affect others?” Answer those questions honestly to yourself and the path is clear!

Monkey Mind is going to Heaven, enjoy this ride………………………

Ten…..Nine……Eight…..Seven…..Six…..Five…..Four…..Three…..Two…..Shine! :-)

“Well, we wish we were happier, thinner and fitter. We wish we weren’t losers and liars and quitters. We want something more not just nasty and bitter. We want something real not just hash tags and Twitter. It’s the meaning of life and it’s streamed live on YouTube. But I bet Gangnam Style will still get more views. We’re scared of drowning, flying and shooters, but we’re all slowly dying in front of fucking computers. So sing, sing at the top of your voice. Oh, love without fear in your heart. Can you feel, feel like you still have a choice, if we all light up we can scare away the dark?”

Unthinkable to Possible – Full Moon @ 20 Capricorn

Lyrics: John Mayer – Waiting On The World to Change

“Me and all my friends we’re all misunderstood. They say we stand for nothing and there’s no way we ever could. Now we see everything that’s going wrong with the world and those who lead it. We just feel like we don’t have the means to rise above and beat it. So we keep waiting, waiting on the world to change. We keep on waiting, waiting on the world to change.

Caught somewhere between “beatin’ on the walls on heartache” and “I just want peace” everyone is aware of how quickly life is evolving, twisting, turning, changing, contorting and shifting. The Full Moon @ 20 Capricorn occurs on July 12th at 7:25am EST. Look at the “life miles” traveled since the beginning of 2014 when we celebrated the New Moon in Capricorn on January 1st. A Full Moon always brings an adjustment, a change in perspective. Self-Mastery is Capricorn’s top priority. Control. Moral fortitude. Authority. Government. Boundaries. Corporations. Structure. We’re halfway through 2014.

Beliefs create boundaries. And the choices we make determine the length of the road ahead in fulfilling our purpose during our short stay here on Earth. Saturn rules Capricorn so he is host of the Full Moon Event. Saturn is time, responsibility, generations and the male dominated hierarchy, aka Daddy. He’s a Teacher and a Task-Master. You reap what you sow, says Saturn. He’s in Scorpio, the sign of regeneration, transformation, secrets, sex, taboo and intensity. Oh my! It’s called “flow-motion.” He’s at a quirky angle called a Yod with Uranus in Aries. Frustration.

It has been a bumpy few years compliments of Uranus squaring Pluto. Collectively we have arrived at the intersection of space, history and humanity. The question is “where is the line between personal freedom versus government control?Creation is unfolding! How do you feel about working with the “enemy?Unthinkable, right? Well, I guess it depends on one’s definition of “enemy.” The “enemy” lurks within and without. Lasting well into 2016 and beyond the Universe is testing each of us as we juggle the “hard right” and the “easy wrong” choices. A machine will always take the path of least resistance. We’ll be clarifying this for at least the next ten years.

“It’s hard to beat the system when we’re standing at a distance. So we keep waiting, waiting on the world to change. Now if we had the power to bring our neighbors home from war they would have never missed a Christmas. No more ribbons on their door and when you trust your television what you get is what you got. Cause when they own the information, oh they can bend it all they want.”

Altogether now, can we say “American Spring?” The 99% and the 1% need one another. They just don’t realize it yet. Come November, the message will begin to set in. Hobby Lobby. While many on the left AND right are distressed about the recent Supreme Court decision, this is one of the best things that could have ever happened in America. We are about to embark on an incredible journey of defining “religion.” Can we say Christian Sharia law? This is a great big ole’ can of worms!   What’s the difference between a Muslim and a Christian? Our current cronyism is not the property of one political party or the other. Ahhhhh……

Mars (action) Vesta (what’s sacred to me) Ceres (abundance in Nature) and the North Node (Soul Compass) at 23/24 Libra are squaring the Full Moon in Capricorn, while opposing Eris (relationship equity) at 23 Aries. If you were born between 1945 and 1950 you will feel this quite strongly. Your Sedna is at 22/23 Aries. You can’t always get what you want, but you will get what you need. The problem is that what you “want” and what you “need” are at cultural odds. Consider yourselves the “pioneers” for the rest of us as you will go first in making the “hard right choice.” Have you figured out how to die consciously? That’s going to be a focus in ten years. There are two things in life you cannot cheat in life. Death and Mother Nature.

We are setting the tone for the next generation and setting an example for the next 7 generations. Guess what? Religious choices made 200 years ago are why we’re fighting wars today. In the next 2 weeks a Boomer is going to be made an example for the rest of us. Pay attention! Every Economist in the world tells us the same thing. No society can sustain the kind of rising inequality we are witnessing in the Western World today. There is no example in human history where wealth accumulated like this didn’t cause a change, an uprising which upends the cultural norm. Revolution. Evolution. Deconstruction.

Economics 101: if wages go up, employment must go down. That’s the old Model. The new Model is called Middle Out Economics, which rejects the old misconception that an economy is a perfectly efficient, mechanistic system and embraces the much more accurate idea of an economy as a complex eco-system made up of real people who are dependent on one another. The fundamental law of capitalism must be: If workers have more money, businesses have more customers, which makes the middle-class consumers, not rich businesspeople but the true job creators. Which means a thriving middle class is the source of prosperity, not a consequence of it. The middle class creates rich people, not the other way around. See?

“That’s why we’re waiting, waiting on the world to change. We keep on waiting, waiting on the world to change. It’s not that we don’t care, we just know that the fight ain’t fair. So we keep on waiting, waiting on the world to change.”

29 Degrees. The Anaretic Degree (where all knowledge gained from a sign resides, lessons learned). Jupiter at 29 Cancer. Mercury at 29 Gemini. White Moon Selene at 29 Sagittarius. A Divine Messenger reveals all your Cup of Wisdom can hold. This is “growing up.” For some it will be a neon flashing billboard, while for another it might be a white feather. Signs can be subtle too! Whatever the sign, it’s a perfectly-one-of-a-kind-message-created-just-for-you. Forgiveness. Saying good-bye doesn’t mean forever. Air. Fire. Water. Breathing steam. Purified. Baptized. Redemption. Grace. Loving from the heart. Choices made over the next two weeks bring consequences in October and November. Honor Self. Honor Other. “You are not my enemy when we have a common goal.

Personally: Transition. Uncertainty. Movement. Chaos. Uncharted territory. Human and humane. Clarity. Calm. New directions. New pathways. Initiate. Ignite.  All the “inner work” completed over the past 9 months externalizes. Choices made this month will come to fruition in October/November. Fast-paced and action packed. Quick, fast and in a hurry (some days). Life owes no one anything. From Unthinkable to Possible!

Four steps to changing behavioral patterns:

1)      Unconscious Incompetence: You are not aware that you have a limiting behavior.

2)     Conscious Incompetence: You become aware of the behavior, but are unable to change.

3)     Conscious Competence: You catch the behavior and change. At first you are aware of it after you do it but with conscious practice, the response time decreases until you can stop yourself before you act-out the old behavior and substitute the new behavior.

4)     Unconscious Competence: You are using the new behavior without thinking about it.

Everything becomes a blessing when one accepts and acknowledges what is occurring in life. If one believes that life owes them something then there’s a better than average chance they shall continue to struggle. Indoctrinated into a Culture that teaches children to “want stuff” and to become a consumer without giving something back is a recipe for failure for the culture. “Let them eat cake.” We were taught to “want” what we “want.” Ain’t that something? Think for yourself. Think about what actions you take as you take them.  What will be the consequences?  Speak for yourself. Question everything. Accept that you have more in common with your enemy than you think. Find those you need in your Community and who need you in return. Welcome to the 2014 Fall Eclipse Season. Game on! Unthinkable to Possible!

“And we’re still waiting, waiting on the world to change. We keep on waiting, waiting on the world to change. One day our generation is gonna’ rule the population. So we keep on waiting, waiting on the world to change. We keep on waiting, waiting on the world to change.”

o·pen-source – [oh-puhn-sawrs, -sohrs] adjective- pertaining to or denoting a product or system whose origins, formula, design, etc., are freely accessible to the public.

Last week Elon Musk of Tesla Motors made history (read here and here). Musk gave away all the patents on Tesla’s electric car technology, allowing anyone, including competitors, to use them in good faith. It will take time to see what “good faith” means though. Making that step has brought cause for pause at Apple, Google and Samsung. They decided to back off some lawsuits and are considering how to SHARE their inventions to accelerate global innovation. Here we go!

Astrologically, the first half of 2014 found humans dealing with personal planets, Venus, Mercury and Mars retrograde, one right after another. Retrograde requires a “review, to reconsider something.” Look at how much changed in your life, personally, over the past 6 months. We will spend the next six months implementing what we’ve each learned. Originality is the key to respecting your Soul’s Destiny. How does your unique gift change your world? How do you practice your unique skills everyday? We each have an Open Source we share with others on a daily basis! What part of yourself are you sharing?  Surface stuff or authentic depth?

The New Moon on June 27th (4:10AM EST) at 5 Cancer is hosted by the Moon in Cancer. The New Moon is the time we set our intentions for the next month. What do you intend to begin/continue over the next month? Cancer is the sign of home, family, early childhood, instincts, emotional coping mechanisms, Mom, Grandma and Apple Pie patriotism. Mercury is preparing to station direct on July 1st, Pluto, Neptune and Chiron are all currently retrograde. Plant seeds! Since these are trans-personal planets, globally we are all reviewing life on the pale blue dot we call home! “Where is my home and where do I belong” will be a point of focus for many in July.

Generations. Milestones. Monuments. Souvenirs. This New Moon asks “what does your compassion tell you?” We have great emotional capacity and many are overly emotionally sensitive during this Moon. The good news is that we can sense the undercurrents of situations in advance because our intuition is over the top, trust your God-Spark. Intuition. Soul maturity. You have unique skills. Mastery. Self-confidence. Self-trust. Some qualities cannot be faked. Clear communication and conscious intention bring truth-full results.

Are you brave enough to follow that internal vision you’ve been pondering for the past few months? If you feel something stirring inside, trust yourself and follow it. No, the way is not always clear, but stop worrying about looking foolish, or what other’s think. That’s none of “my” business. And contrary to how other’s lives appear, I promise you, no one has it all figured out. Those who yell the loudest are the most afraid. At the core, they fear being alone. We are all learning as we go! We never alone. It’s an illusion!

The walls of separation are starting to fall as humanity awakens from a very long and deep, deep slumber. Open Source. What can I share? What do I have to share? Can someone else improve on it? What can I use that someone else is willing to share? How can I make it better? Some sleep in a Republican bed. Some sleep in a Democrat bed. Some sleep in a Christian bed. Some sleep in a Muslim bed. Some sleep with guns. Some sleep with members of the same sex. Some sleep in an entitled bed. Some sleep in the street. Which bed do you sleep in? Can one get better sleep in a Christian bed than a Muslim bed? I wonder. Which bed were you born in? Which bed does Consciousness sleep in? Hypnotized. Mesmerized.

Mars opposite Uranus. Jupiter square Nodes. What action needs to be taken? Action is born of new ideas and intentions. Action brings Soul experience. Confidence. Courage. The body takes action to breathe life into the Soul’s intent. When body and Soul are united a human can move mountains. The Nodes are sitting at 25 Libra/Aries, the degrees of the Lunar eclipses in October 2013 and April 2014. Codes of Knowing. Whatever has been plotted and planned, it’s time to get going. Participate in life please. Integration. We all have a purpose, and it’s usually something simple. It’s what you love doing. Yes, we can all make a difference. Open Source. Share.

South Node conjunct Eris. Staying in denial creates more chaos and life becomes more difficult, even painful for some. Time to wake up! You can change partners, change jobs or change your geographical location. The circumstances will remain the same unless there is a sincere change to following what one KNOWS is true for “me.” Authentic. True change is arrives in steps. Unfolding. Eris is very concerned with Equal Rights. The South Node is the way we’ve always done things. Her location in an individual’s chart reveals our own personal Seal Team 6. Tactical. Strategy. Chaos. Discord. Smokescreens. False flags. She expects to be treated equally. Don’t you?

Do not be shy. Anger is a great motivator for change when you’re just waking up. Some “thing” is going to become very clear, all of a sudden in the next few weeks. It’s been this way all along. No one will miss the irony of the revelation on or around July 18th! Surprise! The difference is that now humans SEE what “I didn’t see before.” Double-standard. Hypocrisy. The most obvious example in the news is Maliki in Iraq. It will be interesting to see how the US’s past gets cleaned up in Iraq. Hawks and Doves. Not everyone agrees with “me” so “I” respect the other point of view. In my brother’s shoes.

July will bring more change. The focus this month is “what’s really going on?Discrimination is gained from experience. Hard-knocks. Loss. Disappointment. We are each the “Mother of Life.” Once we arrive at August doorstep everyone can exhale. Pay attention to your passion, what makes you feel alive? Expect at least one old ghost from the past to rear its head in the next month in the form of a “HABIT.” It’s the one pattern that just won’t seem to go away.

May I suggest that instead of engaging it you trace the roots of its anger? Think about how your grandparents raised your parents. EXCAVATE! There is a big clue! Better yet, if you have grandchildren, listen carefully to them because there’s a good chance “I” will hear “myself” through their words. Ouch! It’s the hypocrisy that you can easily see in your family. We will each be gifted with an opportunity to create a brand new dream, if we are bold and take action. What point of view is guiding or confusing the situation in your life? No matter what, please just trust yourself. You KNOW what you KNOW! This website is an Open Source, as you are welcome to take any part of it, put your name on it and SHARE it!  Improve on it!  We are each an “Open Source.” SHARE? Truth. Transparency. Integrity. And YES, we ALL share Mothership Earth! Ain’t that something?

Grandmas“In our politics, we have become masters of camouflage. We practice fiscal cruelty and call it an economy. We practice legal cruelty and call it justice. We practice environmental cruelty and call it opportunity. We practice vicarious cruelty and call it entertainment. We practice rhetorical cruelty and call it debate. We set the best instincts of ourselves in conflict with each other until they tear each other to ribbons, and until they are no longer our best instincts but something dark and bitter and corroborate with itself. And then it fights all the institutions that our best instincts once supported, all the elements of the political commonwealth that we once thought permanent, all the arguments that we once thought settled — until there is a terrible kind of moral self-destruction that touches those institutions and leaves them soft and fragile and, eventually, evanescent. We do all these things, cruelty running through them like hot blood, and we call it our politics.” ~Charles P. Pierce

“This is your last chance. After this, there is no turning back. You take the blue pill – the story ends, you wake up in your bed and believe whatever you want to believe. You take the red pill – you stay in Wonderland and I show you how deep the rabbit-hole goes.” Morpheus to Neo – The Matrix

We live life at two different levels. There is the level where “we think” and then there is the level where “we KNOW.Decision is a destination, a tangible place of certainty, but the multiple paths that take us there can be faint, foggy and damp. We are confronted by choices unanticipated. We find new information, unexpected options, possibilities we did not foresee. That is the “thinking” side of life! Discernment is the “knowing” side of life. Just because you don’t “think” you can hear the God-Spark of Intuition does NOT mean it isn’t speaking to you. The absence of evidence is not evidence of absence. We must be willing to ALLOW it to speak! Listen….

On June 21st @ 6:50AM EST the Sun (Soul Essence) enters Cancer (home). Summer Solstice. The word “solstice” means “Sun stands still.Pause! The Sun reaches its peak of the longest day of the year in the Northern Hemisphere and pauses (3 days) before beginning its annual trek back to the shortest day of the year in December at the Winter Solstice. This yearly ritual happens whether we are paying attention or not. The Solstice chart represents the mood and events we can expect over the next 3 month period until the Autumn Equinox on September 24th. We travel the distance from “thinking” to “knowing.Activation!

On June 20th Chiron will station retrograde @ 17 Pisces and here is where we choose the red pill or the blue pill. You know that thing you’ve been chasing after for the better part of your life? The one thing you THINK will make you happy? Well, what if you were to discover that it has been nothing more than a distraction that keeps you from full-filling your purpose? Think about the story-line you use when you tell someone about yourself when you first meet and get acquainted. Are you still telling the same story? Red pill or blue pill? If your birthday is +/- 3 days of March 8th, June 8th, September 10th or December 10th you will feel this stronger than others. Remember decision is a destination!

“Neo, sooner or later you’re going to realize just as I did that there’s a difference between knowing the path and walking the path.” ~ Morpheus to Neo – The Matrix

Cancer is home, childhood patterns, our instincts, patriotism, nurturing side and the soft side of our belly, our emotions. Home is where we feel safe and secure, our castle that protects us from the harsh reality of “life out there beyond the moat.” Family Reunions usually occur in the Summer months as we re-connect with our ancestral roots. Familial patterns, dysfunctional or not, play out when we gather together. What is the “story” your family tells about itself. Are you victims or survivors? Do you still believe the early childhood indoctrination?

Asteroid Isis (42) enters Cancer just minutes ahead of the Sun. This is good news! Isis, the Great Mother in Egyptian Astrology, collected all the dead pieces of her husband Osiris and put him back together after his brother murdered him. Since there was one body part she could not locate she used a little magic, managed to get pregnant and birth a great King, Horus. It’s time to put “me” back together again. That’s 7+ billion “me’s!” Going down the rabbit hole brings a reality check. The Sun is the giver of life. It is our “life-force.” It’s what animates the human body and makes us alive.

Many will be waking up to another layer of the illusion we call reality. Am “I” slave or master? Most decisions and choices made by humans are based on avoidance of some type of perceived pain. As humans we remain in a perpetual state of problem solving, an endless attempt to avoid a consequence. With this kind of relentless cat and mouse game the illusion is all that we can see. We are cocooned in the illusion and always in hope of being rescued. We want to be freed from this simulation. Collect the pieces of “Self.” Re-create reality. Listen within for that soft whisper of KNOWING to guide the way. Isis KNOWS and is dedicated, relentless and faithful to what She KNOWS is true. When we trust the God-Spark that KNOWS there is no longer a need to make a choice. We KNOW what to do in order to full-fill our own purpose.

“What is real? How do you define ‘real?’ If you’re talking about what you can feel, what you can smell, what you can taste and see, then ‘real’ is simply electrical signals interpreted by your brain.” ~ Morpheus to Neo – The Matrix

The Moon (mood of people) and Uranus (change/surprise through serendipity) are close enough in Aries, the sign of me, myself and I. Expect a rowdy crowd. Strong emotions and out of the blue innovation bring a change in mood over the next few months. Feelings are raw, crowds are angry and some have a quick-trigger-finger. Whoa! Slow down. Here is where our morals and integrity get tested. If you knew you had broken the law, would you turn yourself in?

Do you need to make amends to anyone? Have you forgiven yourself and others for past transgressions? Can you put yourself in another’s shoes and see the world from their point of view? Do you seek happiness or wholeness? Which do you prefer? Why is one better than the other? Remember that “story” you tell others as you answer those questions to yourself. Once we get to the truth of how we really “feel” about another and WHY we feel that way, something amazing happens. The truth is that the illusion is really the slave and it is you that is the master.

Uranus in Aries and Pluto in Capricorn are both in the mid-degrees of their respective sign. They make 7 tense angles to one another between 2012 and 2015. There is no movement without tension. Law of Physics. The effects will change us individually and re-define our culture. Change is slow because we are participating individually in the transformation of the Collective Illusion of money, food, shelter, love, belonging, wholeness, identity and self-worth. The illusion ends the moment we each decide. There is a great deal going on behind the scenes and under the surface. Uranus leaves Aries in 2018 and Pluto enters Aquarius in 2023. They have 2 meetings left before they part ways for good in 2015. Uranus stations retrograde July 22nd. Expect an awakening or activation personally, locally and globally.

“I’m trying to free your mind, Neo. But I can only show you the door. You’re the one that has to walk through it.” ~ Morpheus to Neo – The Matrix

Venus is “we the people” and is in her home sign of Taurus, sitting pretty with Sedna, the Inuit Princess who was sacrificed, by her father, and became the food supply from the oceans for mankind. Many feel the weight of the changes and intense pressure building in the environment. A recent study showed that ordinary people don’t mind paying a little more on their monthly power bill in exchange for lower carbon emissions. Banksters, pranksters, posers and players beware. Coming soon to a location near you more protesting about minimum wage and the moral cost of keeping wage-slaves employed. Wealth inequity. Who is entitled and why are they entitled? What are you entitled to? Says “who?

Mars has been in Libra since December 2013. He’s at his weakest in Libra. Coming off a very tense retrograde period the “little engine that could” is picking up speed and crossing the oh-so-sensitive points he activated earlier this Spring. We’ve spent almost 8 months going over the issue of “balance of power” in our relationship with “myself, my fellow travelers, my partner, my Creator and my planet.” Everyone has had the chance to experience the contrast between “belief” and KNOWLEDGE. What is KNOWN has no boundaries. What is BELIEVED sets the boundaries.

Over the next 3 months personal belief systems are going to come into sharp focus. What “I think” and what “I KNOW.” Belief systems are temporary. They always lead us to the “next step.Inner guidance is simply the re-establishment of an established relationship. When we discover our own KNOWING it is like finding an old friend we forgot we had. Pay attention to how your belief systems are changing. There are no rules, no right, no wrong, there is only now. Stay present, be conscious and trust yourself! You KNOW more than you KNOW! Blue pill or red pill? TRUST YOURSELF!

“Have you ever had a dream, Neo, that you were so sure was real? What if you were unable to wake from that dream? How would you know the difference between the dream world and the real world?” ~ Morpheus to Neo – The Matrix

Pigs on the runway – Full Moon @ 22 Sagittarius

hqdefault“A human being is a part of the whole called by us universe, a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feeling as something separated from the rest, a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest to us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty.” ~Einstein

The purpose of Flight School is to teach a future pilot how to control a crash landing and All Souls on board walk away (my opinion).   You are taught how to land in between power lines, on top of trees and if need be, in moving traffic on a highway. The “touching-down” on the runway is the moment when the pilot is most vulnerable. You are approaching the runway. Decrease throttle. Slow down. Lower flaps to slow you down more. You are lined up. Maintain steady decrease of speed. Lower flaps another 20 degrees. Hold it, hold it, hold it….steady……..almost there……….oh shit! “I can’t land. There are pigs on the runway.” Immediately throttle down, flaps up and pull back on the stick. Full power. Need altitude NOW!

Ready. Set. Not quite GO.

There’s a Full Moon on Friday, the 13th, at 12:12AM EST @ 22 Sagittarius, the sign of adventure, foreigners, law, military, religion, belief systems, wisdom and Galactic Knowing.

Chariklo is conjunct the Moon/Earth @ 23 Sagittarius but inconjunct Jupiter in Cancer, the host of this monthly ritual of festivities. The BIG PICTURE GUY is presenting a self-sabotage mirror for our pleasure. It is about “motivation.It’s a Pop Quiz. People are prickly. Jupiter is also creating some tension with Mars sister, Eris @ 22 Aries. Eris and Jupiter are up to their old tricks. They can make the Sun and Moon rise in the West. Reconsider “betting the farm” on a whim. Bending time. Question everything! Trust yourself!

The question to re-consider is “what rules, if any, do I believe do not apply to me?” That’s Jupiter and Eris. Good news. It you are unsure it will be brought to your attention for review during this Full Moon. Your Fairy God-Mother, aka White Moon Selene, is on the scene. She’s waiting with a gift. She delivers within the week. Keep thinking back in 7-year increments. How far back can you remember? Every 7 years the Spirit takes a leap of faith. Spiritual evolution. If you are 63, then this is an especially fortuitous time period. Chariklo and WMS both offer reward for the inner journey at 63. Grace and graciousness incarnate.

Rings of Chariklo

Think back to the end of May 2013. There was a Full Moon Eclipse @ 4 Sagittarius. This is the first Full Moon in Sagittarius after the Eclipse. Time unfolds. Less than 2 weeks later, on June 3, 2013 it was discovered that Chariklo had 2 rings. The Astronomy Community was stunned and surprised! The general public heard the news back in March. The 2 rings were named Oiapoque (inner ring) and Chuí (outer ring), after 2 rivers that form the northern and southern coastal borders in in Brazil. Formal naming will take place eventually by the IAU.

During this last year, consciously or unconsciously, humans have been clearing out what is NOT a reflection of “my personal truth.The process of elimination! It’s choice time. If complete trust of Self is present, then choice is not necessary. Learning to trust Self is the lesson. Can I think for myself? It’s important to pay attention. Chariklo, represents the “fringe aspect.” Those that appear to be “out-there” and “spacey.”  They question everythingChariklo was Chiron’s wife. She is the Master of “holding space and unconditional love.” Her advice is always the same: QUESTION EVERYTHING! If we don’t question others and ourselves how can we ever move past the “past?Jupiter in Cancer is bringing to light our co-dependent culture. How do we “enable” others? Insanity is doing the same thing over and over expecting a different outcome.

“Do not feed your ego and your problems, with your attention…. Slowly, surely, the ego will lose weight, until one fine day it will be nothing but a thin ghost of its former self. You will be able to see right through it, to the divine presence that shines in each of us.” ~Eknath Easwaran

It is very, very, very important to see what is happening from the BIG PICTURE point of view. White Moon Selene and Chariklo offer grace from the deluge that usually accompanies a Full Moon. The “saving grace.” Whatever the focus in your life at the moment, ask yourself “is it enough or is this too much?” Find the balance. What are you trying to “hold together” in your life? What needs to “pass?” Cleansing change opens destiny’s door and clears a pathway for the Soul. Change comes to break down pride and clear away over-dependence on Self and our available resources. Weakness is exposed.

Many have been patiently waiting for change, but it still has not arrived. It will. Patience equals living in uncertainty. Change arrives when we discard that which is no longer needed. Sometimes all we can do for another is “hold space” for them. Many are going through significant internal/external change and are angry or self-righteous. It’s easy to fall into a cycle of withdrawal from life. Check your own motivations if you feel a pressing need to “help” someone. Did they ask for your help? Are you “offering” to help without them asking because you are really avoiding helping yourself? Be honest with “why” you want to help. Prosperity comes from an abundance of the Soul rather than wealth. Possessiveness comes from distrusting others.

Astrology is a great “save-the-date” tool (for timing).

June 14th - Mars (action) at 12 Libra (relationship/balance) squares Pluto (transforming) at 12 Capricorn (traditional structure). If your birthday is +/- 2 days of October 6th, January 3rd, April 2nd or July 5th, you will feel this quite strongly.

June 25th – Mars at 16 Libra opposes Uranus (change agent) at 16 Aries (sovereign rights). If your birthday is +/- 2 days October 10th, January 7th, April 6th or July 9th, you will feel this strongly.

Low Landing

To low of a landing

There are “pigs on the runway” so if your landing is being postponed check to see what needs to be released. This is a very action-packed Full Moon that easily brings up 7+ billion inner demons for review. YES, NO one is above the rules on this one. This is a group effort. Mars is ready for action as he’s picking up speed and preparing to ignite the Cardinal Cross, one last time. New Year’s 2014 he presented the situation to each of us. In April 2014 he was retrograde and mixing it up created a smoke screen. The dust has settled and now we see what is left to build on.

Please keep the BIG PICTURE in mind as you go through any change that this Full Moon brings. Oh, about those pigs. Landing a plane is tricky because you ALWAYS have to “stall out,” right before you land, by lifting the nose of the plane, so the back wheels touchdown first. And how do you know when to set the “KNOWS” (nose) down? It’s easy just keep watching the horizon at the end of the runway. A pilot learns through the process of elimination “when” to touch down because pilots TRUST themselves. You’re going to make a great pilot! TRUST YOURSELF!

“Why aren’t you happy? It’s because ninety-nine percent of everything you do, and think, and say, is for yourself — and there isn’t one.” ~Wu Wei Wu

Lyrics: My Morning Jacket – Two Halves

“Remember when you were seventeen. You was goin’ crazy, you know what I mean. It wasn’t that long ago. In the grand scheme of things it wasn’t that long ago. You think you’re so much smarter now.”

Today there are more things connected to the Internet than there are people in the world. In the very near future, pretty much everything you can imagine will “wake up.” Can you imagine an “internet” that is “conscious and self-aware?” What happens when the Internet wakes up?  When smart things everywhere are connected together, we will be able to DO and BE more, so say “experts.

The Internet of Everything (IoE) is a paradigm shift that marks a new era of opportunity for everyone, from consumers and businesses to cities and governments. We will move through our days and nights surrounded by connectivity that intelligently responds to what we need and want, what we call the Digital Sixth Sense.  Key elements that make it real are already here. Smartphones are the most natural tool to deliver IoE experiences.

If dead people could talk what do you think they would want most to tell us? Life is about to get very simple. It comes down to “a” choice. “Will I full-fill my destiny here on Earth or will I not?” When we die either we did or we didn’t. And of course, the next question is “what is my purpose?” It’s simple. Purpose is an experience that you can share with others. What are you currently sharing with others? It’s your passion. In what situations have you experienced your life to the fullest? Do you live your passion as fully as you can? How do you limit your experience of passion? How do you ration your passion? Oh, and passion equates to the God-Spark.

The Spring Storm season is over. It’s time to tidy up the debris and begin rebuilding. It’s amazing what treasures can be found after a storm. That which is not visible suddenly becomes visible. Beliefs make life way to complicated. No one can full-fill their purpose if their own life is in disarray. In order to full-fill one’s purpose one must set their own affairs in order. Otherwise one would end up wrestling with self-conflict via relationships with others. Relationships always reveal one’s personal hidden issues.  Welcome to reality!

The Universe has a funny way of getting us to where we need to BE. We crossed the point of no return a couple of years ago. We peel away the dead skin of outdated beliefs and behaviors one layer at a time. Some are peeling it away faster than others. The process will keep repeating until we “get it.” And what are we supposed to be “getting?The obvious! There are 7+ billion sharing One Mothership. We all need to get along and take care of Timeship Earth. Oh, it won’t happen overnight. Right now one in four children 5 and under in the US is white. In 50 years or less everyone will be color-blind.

June 7th, Mercury (communication, travel, transactions, sight, hearing, thought process and how I pray) pauses at 3 Cancer and, from Earth’s point of view, stations retrograde @ 7:57AM EST. It travels back into Gemini on July 17th and will station direct on July 1st @ 24 Gemini. On June 9th, Neptune (Cosmic Connector, ancient memories, DNA and consciousness) stations retrograde @ 7 Pisces until November 16th, when it stations direct @ 4 Pisces. Both planets will be retrograde in their home sign, so they both have some extra “oomph.” Expect a ghost from the past to show up at the beginning or end of the Mercury Rx. Retrogrades are the time periods we re-vise, re-think, re-consider, re-view and do over the past. See something from a different point of view. Neptune will bring to the forefront something invisible and make it visible. Illusion or enlightenment?

Neptune wants to know “what is returning home?” During the initial spiritual awakening period most people have the urge to “go home.” No physical place can satisfy the Soul’s search for home though. It is the “home within” we seek. Emotional homecoming is sought because it represents the Soul’s deepest yearning for Divine Union and the end of traveling. This is a good time to take a respite, or a rest-stop. Our native home can provide a sense of peace and contentment. Environmental harmony brings wholeness. There could be a period of pause as many are getting their bearings as to the true direction of “home.Neptune transits are famous for creating a fog so thick we can’t see what’s right in front of us. Dazed and confused. The range of emotions can run the gamut of ecstatic bliss to sudden reality check seeing the “real truth.

“Twenty one everything stays in place. Forty one some things start to fade. Well, when you’re so young (so young), you wanna be older (so young) and when you’re older, you want the body you have now.”

Pain and pleasure are the Twins that can never separate themselves from one another. It’s the model for duality created on Mothership Earth. Mercury Rx asks each of us to reconsider how consciously we participate in life. Remember, lack of freedom occurs at the exact point where pain and please meet. That’s the point of balance where “CHOICE” is made. Mercury Rx starts out by asking “how well can you resist the temptation to play God and try to control?” Whatever fear causes you aversion also binds you to it. The faster one runs, the more isolated one becomes, which in turn fuels self-destructive behavior. Here is a chance to find SELF-RESPECT! Find your VOICE!

The Universe works in very mysterious ways. The goal is GLOBAL PEACE AND HARMONY. That’s roughly 200 years out, so just know that everything we do today is for our grand-children’s great-grand-children. Remember it’s the Internet of Everything. We are all connected now thanks to technology. Everything is going to be re-structured. Between now and mid-September the Universe is going to wake all humans up to a much needed change in our global financial system.

Money is NOT the root of all evil either. Say it out loud “I LOVE MONEY.” Starting saying thank you, thank you, thank you, instead of a wish-list/laundry-list in the daily prayers. That’s the secret to The Secret! Saying “thank you” brings quick results, because deep down inside most people believe MONEY is a bad thing. It’s not! That’s what you were taught as a child.

Jupiter will be squaring Sedna of those born between 1940 and 1993 (through September). Watch the DOW as it inches its way to 17000. Expect to have something brought to your attention (look for natal Sedna and transiting Jupiter in your chart) to show you where you feel entitled but you are not unless everyone receives equal treatment. It’s time to get down to the root cause of some serious issues here in the US. Ever watch a politician talk out both sides of their mouth? Pay attention! We are how we treat each other.

The mid-term elections are in November. Judge NO ONE please! When we judge others our “minds” are closed. Try to see the predicament they are in and be grateful that this person has brought a lesson up for your own review. We are ALL on the Path of Choice right now. Some are called to service whether they are ready or not. Look at it this way, if a building was on fire would you stop and ask yourself “am I ready for this fire in my life right now?”  Is it really the pursuit of happiness that drives humans or is it the pursuit of wholeness?

If your birthday is +/- 2 days of February 26th, May 16th or 29th, August 31st, November 30th, June 25th, September 17th or 27th, December 17th or 25th or March 15th or 24ththen you will feel the Rx stations stronger than others.

We are in the throes of a paradigm-shift. IoE. If you haven’t noticed it yet, I suspect that many will become aware of a “presence.” Some have felt it for months or years, while others are simply becoming aware of it. What do you call that “presence?” It’s the multi-dimensional “you” that you are sensing. Some can clearly see how the “big picture” is playing out as a “miracle.TRUST YOURSELF. Some feel the need to hibernate right now. That’s the integration process of the frequency upgrades of inner KNOWING. Expect personal revelation during June. “Will I full-fill my destiny here on Earth or will I not?”   This is where we can meet “my true self.”   Be gentle with yourself this month and give yourself permission to chill out!  TRUST YOURSELF!  Thank you Joy-Joy-Joy!

“I believe in a perfect world. You rule your own universe. The only gun you’ll ever need will be in your brain. The only gun you’ll need is in your hands. You want this now you want that. Can’t have it all you should enjoy what you have. But I know what you want. Well I know what you want. Well I know what you want. You want the better of two halves.”

Lyrics: Little River Band – Cool Change

“If there’s one thing in my life that’s missing, it’s the time that I spend alone sailing on the cool and bright clear water. Lots of those friendly people, they’re showing me ways to go and I never want to lose their inspiration. Time for a cool change. I know that it’s time for a cool change, now that my life is so prearranged. I know that it’s time for a cool change.”

Change! The one constant in the Universe. We cannot live without it. The Spring Eclipse season is over and the Cardinal Cross brought the much needed “winds of change.” The New Moon on May 28th @ 7 Gemini is the first New Moon this year without at least one of the personal planets being retrograde.  It’s time! The Reconciliation! The New Moon is the monthly meeting, from Earth’s point of view, of the Sun and Moon where we merge within and without in the darkness. We set our intention for the next month. Turn the page…..

This New Moon is a clear call to put on your “5D big picture glasses.” That means we can see the Miracle in the Madness of Me! Ruled by Mercury, Gemini is the sign of the Twins. Duality. Yes/No.   Right/Wrong. Here/There.   Pain/Pleasure.   A fine line. A border. A barrier. Distinction. Discernment. Mercury is the Mind, seeing, hearing, communication, how “I” pray, travel and transactions. Anything that “moves.”  Turn the page..…

Venus is the Esoteric Ruler of Gemini and she wants to take you “higher on Timeship Earth.Venus is “our connection/relationship with the Universe(s).” The Internet of Everything. String Theory. Multi-Dimensional Beings. Interlocking Synchronicity! Expect some meetings to occur over the next 28 days as you begin connecting with your Spiritual Family. What makes you feel alive? Go do it! Turn the page…..

Venus and Mercury are travelling, for a moment, in harmony at 29 Gemini/Aries respectively. The oh-so-powerful Anaretic degree where we “gain wisdom” by taking away something that is no longer needed. Letting go! Our beliefs, concepts and emotions all add layers of meaning to physical reality, but that meaning exists for us individually, it has no objective existence. Turn the page…..

Asteroid DNA (55555) will be at 7 Gemini too. Genetic Heritage. Ancient Origins. This is the same degree that Venus stationed direct in June 2012. Expanding the capacity for Unconditional Love. Appreciating the Teachers. Imagine lightening striking the Earth (it does 50x/second each day). It hits the ground and discharges. It bounces back up into the ionosphere and is reflected back to Earth in what is called an oscillating EM (electromagnetic) field. Day after day. Millions of years. Over time, the lightening strike(s) set up a “standing wave,” which Tesla measured for the first time in 1899. Today we refer to this as Shumann Resonance. Turn the page…..

This standing wave has an extremely low frequency (ELF), 7.8 Hz. The peak of the alpha brainwave is also 7.8 Hz. That means that the human brain is precisely tuned to the Earth’s resonant EM field, generated by electricity. Oh my! Our brains are in sync with Nature! Holy Shift! KNOWING. We humans are ELF receivers and transmitters, our brains are finely tuned to this naturally generated and sustained, global, electromagnetic field. We are ALL CONNECTED! Think or speak?

“Well, I was born in the sign of water and it’s there that I feel my best. The albatross and the whales they are my brothers. It’s kind of a special feeling when you’re out on the sea alone staring at the full moon like a lover. Time for a cool change. I know that it’s time for a cool change, now that my life is so prearranged. I know that it’s time for a cool change.”

The bondage of human desire keeps the body subservient and the Soul in pain. We are unable to pursue our Destiny, our Purpose. The Mission. Lack of freedom occurs where pain and pleasure meet. Neptune is poised to station retrograde, in a few weeks, at 7 Pisces. Square. Tension. Addiction of choice. Higher Consciousness. In the 3D world of cause/effect is where humans live in the illusion of being “separate from others.” The “left-side-brain” is only too happy to swear out loud “I AM __________.” Limited perception. Self-contempt makes one miserable. Turn the page…..

Cultivating higher awareness reveals just how we have added things that really aren’t there to our picture of reality. Neptune dissolves, layer by layer. Disappointment occurs when expectations are not met. We can’t argue with what we KNOW. We can’t bargain with what we KNOW either. Most of the time, it is not the external change that needs to be addressed, but rather, it is addressing the need that has been ignored. That’s the hard part. Need is the common ground for Soul Training. What do you need right now? The return from Exile can begin now. How is “need” shaping your Destiny? Need helps to focus and value what we actually have. Turn the page…..

Jupiter Chiron and Saturn are graciously providing a healing portal (thank you) in the Water Trine Dance for a few weeks. Digging the thorns out of the personal/cultural wounds methodically we receive Grace and Wisdom. Stamina! Neptune acts as the signpost for Dance Class in Unity Consciousness. Remember, we are all vibrating at 7.8Hz. We are in constant contact with Timeship Earth. Recovery. We’ve forgotten just where we are in the cycle of life here on Timeship Earth. We go through this change about every 5000 years. Unfortunately our written history is limited. Turn the page…..

This is the New Moon after the Solar Eclipse April 29 @ 8 Taurus. It will take us at least 6 months to fully de-construct that Cross we were each believe we were born with. Did humans create religion in their image to keep the masses under control? What do we really KNOW about our ancient past?  It does not matter if one is religious or not, the belief that “I must suffer because I am not worthy” requires a brave heart to “let go.” When a situation comes to a “crisis point” it’s a sure sign the flexibility is needed. Only “I” can cut the Gordian Knot of confusion, no one else can do it for “me.” Hard work is required to let go of self-belief and self-imposed-obligations. Oh, please turn the page…..

What’s coming together? Join with those of like-mind, share ideas. This is your Spiritual Family! Expect great clarity and illumination this week.  Remember, reality is whatever we BELIEVE it to BE!  Give yourself permission to experience “joy.Joy is the natural state of the Soul. It creates enthusiasm for the road in front of you. Think of the New Moon as a 3-pronged fork in the road. Left. Right. Forward. There’s no going “backward” now. Healing. Resolution. Reconciliation of past/future. There is only Now. Where do “I” fit in? What do “I” have to offer? What can “I” share with another? Sometimes when you find yourself “outside” the group simply means “I” have changed. Would you be friends with someone who talked to you to the way you talk to you? Would you love yourself? We have to start somewhere! Turn the page…..

Revelation Perfection – Mars Direct @ 9 Libra

Lyrics: Avicii – Wake Me Up

“Feeling my way through the darkness guided by a beating heart. I can’t tell where the journey will end but I know where to start. They tell me I’m too young to understand. They say I’m caught up in a dream. Well life will pass me by if I don’t open up my eyes. Well that’s fine by me.”

To fulfill one’s purpose on Earth requires one to be in PERFECT control of Self.   Being “perfect” is not the goal. One cannot experience truth until “fantasy” has been tasted. Fantasy can be bittersweet. When YOU KNOW something, YOU KNOW it. Choices are already made when YOU KNOW. Decisions made without KNOWING are merely presumptions. They are based on emotion, not foundation. People with purpose are not burdened with decisions. Relief. Release. Reciprocation.

Mars is ego, intent, courage, ability to assert myself and willfulness. In Libra, the sign of relationships, Mars is weak and has a tendency to let “my other self” make the decisions. He is the peaceful warrior. At its worst Mars conceals his agenda, getting others to do the dirty work for him. Retrograde periods are really an illusion based on our limited point of view from Earth. During a retrograde period past events/people/situations are brought up for review and reconsideration. Mars stationed retrograde on March 1st at 27 Libra and stations direct on May 19th (EST) at 9 Libra. The focus of the past 2.5 months has been all about re-balancing relationships. All my relations, past and present. Clarification!

February-May 1982. Can you remember that far back? That’s the last time Mars spent a full retrograde in Libra. In our dual culture we tend to focus on “right” or “wrong.” The only way for one of us to be right is for one of us to be wrong. Ouch! Well, Mars Rx in Libra has found a brand new point of view. It is NOTright” or “wrong.” It is “yes” or “no.” There is a BIG difference. How did you know who do you wrong? Did you dis-respect someone or was someone disrespectful of you? Did you know that anger occurs when something unknown becomes KNOWN? When YOU KNOW, YOU KNOW.

“So wake me up when it’s all over, when I’m wiser and I’m older. All this time I was finding myself and I didn’t know I was lost. I tried carrying the weight of the world, but I only have two hands. Hope I get the chance to travel the world, but I don’t have any plans.”

Life is relationship. Mars will spend over 8 months total in Libra (12/8/13 – 7/26/14). Caught somewhere between “people are strange” and “listen to what the Man says” the question Mars has focused on during the Rx period is “where is the balance of respect?” It’s easy to be committed when we are being mindful of the common well-being of all. Consider BOTH sides. When we stop trying to be “right” we are respecting “the other’s” dignity. Differences can be worked out! Mutual respect can bring about peace very quickly. Partisan competitiveness causes unbalance. Ambivalence and indecision occur when one feels disrespected. Only one point of view creates a stalemate. Purge. Stagnation. Seduction.

Mars was the trigger for the Cardinal Cross that is quickly dissipating into a T-Square, now that Jupiter is moving on. Tension. Creates movement. Think back to the beginning of January and mid-April. Mars crossed 13 Libra. Who was right and who was wrong? June 16th-18th Mars will cross this sensitive spot one last time. The question is not about being “right” or “wrong,” but rather it’s time to decide what’s “yes” or “no.” Every time you find yourself thinking someone else is right or wrong, change that to “yes or no.” Surprise, because in order to get a yes or no answer we have to change the questions. A change in point of view! Dogma. Miasmic.

Between now and mid-June Mars is going to try to determine exactly where his relationship skills are needed. We are learning how to bring the macrocosm and the microcosm together. The point of balance. The path of destiny is achieved but it requires PERFECT control of “me, myself and I.” Thus a new skill-set is needed. Lack of ambition feeds idleness, corners get cut, others have to “pull my weight” and then resentment builds in relationships. It goes downhill quickly at that point. Emotional satisfaction is pure Soul food.

If you were born between 1950 and 1973 Mars will be in opposition to your natal Eris in Aries, the Goddess of Discord. Eris is your own personal Seal-Team-6, a Master Strategist. For the next few weeks it is important to THINK before inserting foot in mouth. Baby steps, one conversation at a time. YES OR NO? NOT right or wrong. Peaceful Warrior. For those born between 1940-1950 think back to late Winter/early Spring of 1997. You’re long overdue for healing and reconciliation of a matter that has perhaps confounded you for years. What was so important and creating friction in your life? It matters NOT now. If you’re 28-32 you are seeing the consequences of choices made up to now. If you’re 35-42 all that glitters is not gold. Wealth comes in many forms.

“Wish that I could stay forever this young, not afraid to close my eyes. Life’s a game, made for everyone and love is the prize. So wake me up when it’s all over, when I’m wiser and I’m older. All this time I was finding myself and I didn’t know I was lost.”

Remember Cruinthe (#3753)? On the 22nd-23rd it reaches opposition to Mars. The Cruinthe were the earliest known land-explorers. The Picts, as they were known, were a Celtic matrilineal group. Tattoos. Warriors. Equestrian. Aristocrat. The timing of this meeting indicates that YES, something brand new is giving birth to itself, but it is born from the carelessness and recklessness of others. Everyone receives back all that has been given away. Take heed of opportunities that arise from others mistakes. Mastery of Self is crucial to being able to see the opportunity when it presents itself.

This opposition sets “timing” in motion for mid-July when Mars merges with the North Node @ 23 Libra. This alignment announces the arrival of destiny. Expect unexpected and out of the blue coincidences/meetings over the next couple of months. Listen to the God-Spark of Knowledge within as it is leading each of us through a series of steps to take us “home.”   Revelation Perfection! You have to make room for others in your life. Why would you make someone a priority when they make you an option?

Exclusivity aint’ gonna’ cut it anymore. Do you need to make amends to anyone? THINK. May 27th Venus co-mingles energy with the South Node at 28 Aries. Expect an old ghost to drop by for a short visit.   Share respect and “my good intentions” please. Mars in Libra is learning how to share. What do you have to share? What do you wish someone was willing to share with you? All systems are “go,” but that does not bring immediate results.

Our Real Amazing World/Facebook – This is a once in a lifetime shot of a tornado sucking up a rainbow!

All comes in good time and lessons have to be learned before the next stage can be reached. For now, tidy up physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually. The pace picks up dramatically at the New Moon on the 28th. We all begin our new Dance Class! A kind word or a smile goes a long way these days. Inventory old baggage claims. Some could receive a message from the past (Oct. 2010/June 2011). Fast cars and freedom? Optimism, hope and faith return. PERFECT control of self. TRUST YOURSELF. Yes or no?

“Didn’t know I was lost, I didn’t know I was lost. I didn’t know I was lost. I didn’t know (didn’t know, didn’t know).

 

 

Deconstructing the Crucifixion Myth – Full Moon @ 23 Scorpio

Lyrics: Rodney Adkins – If You’re Going Through Hell

“Well you know those times when you feel like there’s a sign there on your back that says I don’t mind if you kick me, seems like everybody has. Things go from bad to worse. You think it can’t get worse than that and then they do.”

A Full Moon always brings a change in perspective. Adjustment. Think back to mid-March. Chances are good that you were watching someone receive a dose of karma, perhaps even you yourself. You saw the “red flag” of a lie (doesn’t mean you recognized it) and some witnessed clear blue truth (doesn’t mean you recognized it). Connect the dots March – present. Mid-April brought a mentally, emotionally, physically and spiritually exhaustive eclipse and a bear to cross. And here we are. Now. One month later. All “that stuff” is done and over. Change. What’s left? Let the deconstruction begin….

May 14th brings forth another change in point of view during the Full Moon @ 23 Scorpio. It’s different this time. Dive deep. Back to the beginning. Primal instincts. The question this Full Moon poses to each of us is “what new path is calling out to me and how do my instincts empower me?Pluto is the modern ruler of Scorpio and Mars is the traditional ruler. Both appear to be going backward. It’s called retrograde. Mars has been retrograde since March 1st. What’s been stalled out in your life? It stations direct on May 19th and “all systems are a GO.” The train pulls out of the station. Pluto stationed retrograde @ 13 Capricorn on April 14th and is asking “what indoctrination did you receive as a child that no longer serves your growth?

Instinct (Scorpio) is our first guide in life. Listen to what your “gut” is telling you. Public opinion is not necessarily the best indicator as to how to proceed in the situation we face in life right now. TRUST YOURSELF. Mars and Pluto are the bad-asses of the zodiac. Taking action (Mars) based on fear (Pluto). Expect to witness anger as Venus sashays across the oh-so-sensitive 13-degree Cardinal Mark in Aries during the Full Moon. This is like a pop quiz in school. It activates everyone’s life to see if what we are doing is in harmony with what our instincts are telling us. If not, expect an opportunity for change and adjustment to appear. If you witness anger, remember that people are very attached to their anger. Anger is ALWAYS the result of what is NOT KNOWN.

Scorpio rules the 8th House (death, taxes, sex, what we share, transformation and regeneration) and is literally “the process of elimination.” It rules the body’s bowels and sex organs. We discover the truth by eliminating what is false. Truth is presented to us through contrast. People may not know what they want, but they can sure tell you quick, fast and in a hurry what they don’t want, like or need. Thus we discover happiness! Once this is recognized we make valuable decisions. Why? Because we can easily see the source of our sorrow AND happiness. It is a paradox though. What makes us happy is not always desirable. By finding personal preferences though it’s easier to move toward wholeness.

“You step off the straight and narrow and you don’t know where you are. Used the needle of your compass, to sew up your broken heart. Ask directions from a genie in a bottle of jim beam and she lies to you. That’s when you learn the truth.”

In order to find the truth, we have to go backward. 305 AD. The soon-to-be Roman Emperor Constantine was heading into battle against his brother-in-law, Maxentius. He was convinced that he needed divine assistance. He was in a tricky position trying to decide how to bring together his “empire.” He prayed and asked for a sign. While praying he looked up to the sky and saw a “cross of light in the sky.” It was mid-afternoon. Today we know from geological research that there’s a good chance what he witnessed was a meteor exploding in the atmosphere. It’s called an “air-burst.” He took the “sign” of the “cross in the sky” as a divine sign. The Cross became the symbol of preference by Constantine. He was victorious in battle and converted to Christianity. He became Emperor in 306AD. Christianity got the foot-hold it needed when Constantine converted and the Roman Empire was a Christian State.

Constantine really didn’t care about religion. What he cared about was consolidating and coalescing his power, Empire. The Council of Nicea in 325 AD was the first worldwide gathering of the Church. During this meeting the relationship between God and Jesus was decided. The Christianity we know today is a result of what those men agreed upon over that month-long-meeting, including the timing of the religion’s most important holiday, Easter, which celebrates Jesus rising from the dead. God’s law interpreted by men with an agenda. Keeping the power of the church alive and in place has always been the goal. Since childhood the majority have been influenced by some religion doctrine. I wonder if Constantine could have seen the far-reaching results that his choice would have on modern mankind today?  He changed our destiny.

It’s time to begin “deconstruction” of our own personal Crucifixion Myth through the process of elimination of outdated beliefs and there are plenty of them swirling around. It’s an indoctrination program taught to us as children that kept us in line through the fear of the wrath of God, shame and blame. A human can know something logically, but getting to change a behavior based on what the “child” within believed takes patience and practice.  This will not happen overnight, far from it. It will take years to deconstruct, uninstall and reprogram these beliefs. Rewiring the “Mind.” The next 6 months are crucial to begin the deconstruction and restructuring of the human myth we’ve created for ourselves to keep us all in line, compliments of church AND state.

“I’ve been deep down in that darkness. I’ve been down to my last match. Felt a hundred different demons breathin’ fire down my back and I knew that if I stumbled I’d fall right into the trap that they were layin’.”

The easiest way is to start asking “what if” questions. What if I did _________? What would happen if I _________? How could I ______ if I were going to _______? When would such and such happen if I ____________? Here’s one; what would happen if I start telling the truth about “myself” every day.

If I were to ask you “how are you doing today?” Your canned response would be something like “I’m fine” or “I am good,” or “I am okay.” What if, instead of playing this game we all told the truth, “I am ME!” Try it the next time someone asks “how are you?” Be sure to look them in the eye.  You will see the truth “in a flash” of their perception of you.  Even better it’s very easy easy to see how harshly they judge themselves.  Remember, people judge others based on how harshly they judge themselves.  See?  This perfunctory masquerade is so socially ingrained in us that when you say “I am ME” people will pause before responding. Uh-oh, someone isn’t playing the game right. Oh my! By saying “I am fine” I am sacrificing “my truth and your perception of me.”  Children are rarely concerned with answers (remember, we are all growing up this year). The “what if” questions activate your “core energy.” The answers will reveal themselves in time. Be patient and listen carefully. The word “mourn” means “remember.

lifebeginsThis Full Moon is going to “call forth” something from within. There is a yearning for freedom. Adults avoid risks, but once in a while we have to take a chance on something different or walking down the road less traveled. We are all initiating our personal destiny during this Full Moon. What creative plan are you beginning? Passion is the engine of the SoulWhere do you need to invest your stamina? Stamina keeps the Soul pursuing the path of destiny with a “good will.” Find your rhythm. Hard work, patience and tenacity brings destiny to fruition and leads to growth. Pace yourself!

“But the good news is there’s Angels everywhere out on the street, holdin’ out a hand to pull you back up on your feet, the one’s that you’ve been draggin’ for so long. You’re on your knees might as well be prayin’, guess what I’m sayin.”

Creative passion is the Soul’s way of kindling enthusiasm and energy needed for the deconstruction period ahead. The gift of creativity brings out the best of our abilities. The energy of every living creature comes from the vital spark of the Soul. It’s the God-Spark within.  We are learning how to dance with time and space (New Moon @ 7 Gemini on May 28th). This is brand new territory and we’ve never been here before. What if…

What if we were to discover that heaven is really just a “place inside my Soul?” What if we were to discover that Jesus needed sexual energy from Mary Magdalene to physically survive the physical “death ritual” of Crucifixion?  Death is ascension.  We don’t have to do that anymore.  What if we were to discover that our sexuality was equally as important to “saving my Soul?”  Sexual salvation.  Without taboo.  Untangled.  What if we were to discover that the truth is hidden within the mysteries of the Great Mother, and because the Church sought to keep women disenfranchised it keeps the truth hidden away from the masses?

What if we were to discover that the Crucifixion of Jesus was so he could lead the way by leaving a trail of light  for humans to follow in the ascension process, so they would not fear death? At the core of human essence is the fear of “death.”  It’s called Spiritual Alchemy.  What if, all we were supposed to do was to live by Jesus’ example WITHOUT having to play out the Crucifixion every day of our life? No shame, no blame, no guilt.  Lay your Cross down and let the deconstruction begin……

“If you’re goin’ through hell keep on going. Don’t slow down, if you’re scared don’t show it. You might get out before the devil even knows you’re there. When you’re goin’ through hell, keep on movin’. Face that fire, walk right through it. You might get out before the devil even knows you’re there.”

“So long ago, I don’t remember when. That’s when they say I lost my only friend. Well, they said she died easy of a broken heart disease. As I listened through the cemetery trees, I seen the sun comin’ up at the funeral at dawn, the long broken arm of human law. Now, it always seemed such a waste. She always had a pretty face. I wondered why she hung around this place.”

May 2014 is going to be an interesting month. Convergence. Dynamic. Flux. Emergence. The ONLY constant now is change. We each begin the process of integrating new awareness, understanding, wisdom, truth and sustainability. The Eclipse/Cardinal Cross energy is behind us. Take a very deep breath. Forward. Onward. Pay attention because you will probably start to notice a chasm of separation begin to take form this month. We are not out of the “duality forest” yet. It will take another 6 months to 6 years overcome left-over stasis. Humanity awakens in waves. Accept the unacceptable.

Need is the common ground for the Soul’s training. It provides realistic lessons about manifesting one’s destiny. From the perspective of need it’s easy to see all things with insight, from the “big plans” that didn’t quite manifest into reality to the basic necessities we need to simply survive day-to-day. Need helps us focus and value what we have and be more appreciative of available resources. What do I really need right now that I don’t have? What do you say “thank you” for each day? What are you grateful for in life? Accept the unacceptable.

What is being sought? Where is it being sought? Chances are good that it won’t be found in a book, blog, TV, website, You Tube, Facebook, old coping mechanisms, old duality-based astrology, rituals, affirmations, meditations, crystals, spirit guides, mantras or begging a Higher Power to take it away or off of “me.” We’re just not “there” anymore. We’re HERE! What is required now is being emotionally sober. Conscious. That means being aware of our dependencies of “things, people and situations” that make us feel safe. Control. What is sought can only be found in one place. WITHIN. Accept the unacceptable.

“She said it’s cold. It feels like Independence Day and I can’t break away from this parade. But there’s got to be an opening somewhere here in front of me. Through this maze of ugliness and greed and I seen the sun up ahead at the county line bridge. Sayin’ all there’s good and nothingness is dead. We’ll run until she’s out of breath. She ran until there’s nothin’ left. She hit the end, it’s just her window ledge.”

Convergence ahead! The Sun (Soul’s Essence) and Saturn (time/limitation) meet in opposition next weekend at 20 Taurus/Scorpio. The paradox of the meeting is that humans always fear and resist opening to that which is most real within. When we trust the process and surrender to it our true nature comes forth. The result is real integrity, love, authenticity, creativity, understanding, guidance, joy, power, and serenity-all of the qualities we are forever demanding that personality supply. The Universe will provide a mirror from which we can each see the Soul within. It will reveal a perceived “need.” Is it really a need or is it a dependency? We can only answer for ourselves. The rules apply to everyone, indeed. No one is entitled. Accept the unacceptable.

Venus will also be opposing Mars at 9 Aries/Libra. Venus represents feminine and Mars the masculine. Mars is stationary, on pause, from Earth’s limited point of view. He’s direct again on the 19th. They meet in opposition as Solar Feminine (Venus) and Lunar Masculine (Mars). What makes the meeting so needed is everyone gets to finally see the “hidden agenda.” Uh-oh! I didn’t know there was a hidden agenda, did you? This will serve as an ending and a beginning for all relationships. Mr. Hidden Agenda can no longer hide. Venus is empowered and is fully capable of accepting the unacceptable. She says “NO MORE!” Move forward. Relationships reset, reboot and recalibrate. We each take grown-up responsibility for “loving my Soul.” Accept the unacceptable.

Mercury moves into its home sign of Gemini on the 7th, the Twins. Next weekend will find Mercury on the sensitive 7 Gemini degree, where Venus stationed direct in June 2012. Every human being on this planet is a Visitor for a brief period of time. Mercury will act as a Lamp for each of us next weekend. Pure-High-Heart-Brain. It may appear to be dark inside of you, but nothing could be further from the truth. The Fire burns within even though you do not yet feel it or recognize it sufficiently. That is where one will find truthful answers. It’s the God-Spark. Mercury says “it’s time to start interacting with your own DNA/body to expand the Heart-Brain capabilities.” Slow down and listen to the Heart-Brain. The body never lies. Accept the unacceptable.

“Well, this place is old, it feels just like a beat up truck. I turn the engine, but the engine doesn’t turn. Well, it smells of cheap wine and cigarettes. This place is always such a mess. Sometimes I think I’d like to watch it burn. I’m so alone, and I feel just like somebody else. Man, I ain’t changed, but I know I ain’t the same. But somewhere here in between the city walls of dyin’ dreams, I think your death, it must be killin’ me.”

The good news is that Chiron in Pisces, Jupiter in Cancer and Saturn in Scorpio are setting up another Water Trine that will carry us through to the end of the month. Collective healing comes to the forefront as radical compassion begins to take hold. It won’t be hard to miss. The planet is going through a process called the Great Remembering. What if you were to wake up and discover that everything you believed to be true was not the truth you believed it to be? Expect to have a few “home truths” to be revealed when you are ready. It could be subtle or powerful. Breakthrough. Expect at least one Revelation (probably more) this month. Accepting the unacceptable.

It’s not the government or the “dark ones” holding anyone back. We do it to ourselves due to lack of self-consciousness and self-awareness. Wake Up! If one does not know they have an “authentic Self” then how can that person “walk with their power?” It’s like standing at the window of a store believing the door is locked and you can’t have any of what you want. The door was never locked you discover. How would you feel then, knowing you’d been standing at the door for years wishing you could have what is inside? If you can’t find it in yourself, how can you ever see it in another? The BIG question to ask yourself this week is “why would God (insert your Deity here) want me to hold myself back now? Good question!

When options run out, the path is clear. Trust the God-Spark within. The pressure builds this week.  Holding onto a person, place, situation or way of being keeps one locked into the illusion of control and duality. A Creator does not control. A Creator creates. You are more than enough. Being perfect is NOT the goal. In the meantime, understand that a brand new-working-life-creation-model is being created from within. Each of us! Oh yes! If we were all perfect there would be no point in being here. Accepting the unacceptable!

“Hey, come on try a little. Nothing is forever. There’s got to be something better than in the middle. But me and Cinderella, we put it all together. We can drive it home with one headlight.”
