Lyrics: Don Henley – The End of the Innocence
“Remember when the days were long and rolled beneath a deep blue sky. Didn’t have a care in the world with mommy and daddy standing by. But ‘happily ever after’ fails and we’ve been poisoned by these fairy tales. The lawyers dwell on small details since daddy had to fly.”
The only thing we are guaranteed in life is Change. Here comes “different.” Some things on the world scene simply defy description right now. And some days we get a blast from the past. Mr. Spock (LLAP – Star Trek premiered in 1966) has officially “beamed up” and Jimi Hendrix is back from the dead with a new un-released cut called Station Break (1966).
Uniting humanity is no easy feat. Oddly enough it is our separation that unites us right now. Who said the Universe doesn’t have a sense of humor? Paradox! Hope is about the only thing left on this planet that has not been commoditized. And that’s questionable, depending on who you ask.
Gratitude. Compassion. Forgiveness. Humility.
The Dance! The darkest times often take us to the brightest places. Have you ever noticed that? Since 2010 Uranus in Aries (True-to-Self-Sovereignty) and Pluto in Capricorn (Dismantling-the-Status Quo) have been dancing back and forth in a tense 90-degree angle. Their 7th and final square occurs on March 17th. Thunder (Pluto) in my veins and Lightening (Uranus) in my heart! Pure genius! In time we will understand why we had the experience we’ve had, and to what ultimate purpose we are being led.
They will remain in close contact until 2018, when Uranus enters Taurus and finally makes the “break.”
Toxic people are always the best teachers. We’ve all had our share too. Whatever we suppress or deny and attempt to keep out of conscious awareness will show up somewhere, somehow, at some point as our “shadow.” At some past-point we put them out of our consciousness for good reason, yet they remain contained by shame and guilt, until the time is ripe for release. It’s time! The Uranus-Pluto square is the time to allow these elements to surface and embrace them, whether they are perceived as positive or negative. Love yourself and all your flaws.
“But I know a place where we can go that’s still untouched by men. We’ll sit and watch the clouds roll by and the tall grass wave in the wind. You can lay your head back on the ground and let your hair fall all around me. Offer up your best defense but this is the end. This is the end of the innocence.”
Roughly every 125 years Uranus and Pluto (Synodic Cycle) meet and merge to begin a brand new Cycle. Their meeting in 1850-1851 launched the Industrial Revolution. They met at 18 Virgo in 1966 (1 of 3 meetings). The decade of the 60’s was characterized and defined by this meeting. Flower Power! Starting in 1961, with the introduction of The Pill, women experienced their first real taste of freedom that helped incite the Sexual Revolution. Civil Rights. Equality. Ecology. Mysticism. Holistic. Vietnam Conflict. Rise of Military-Industrial Complex. Voter-Suppression. Slavery. Jim Crow. Many more!
Fast forward. The “Opening Square,” as it is called in Astrology, reveals what progress has really been made since their last conjunction, where each individual stands and the amount of work needed. The Uranus/Pluto Opposition in Virgo/Pisces will be here before you know it. 2046-2048. Time flies even when we are NOT having fun! Between now and then we will travel the distance from I AM to WE ARE. Let the Journey begin!
All those born in mid-60’s are close to 50 years old now. The Changing of the Guard is set to begin. Boomers are aging out and in 20 years the Millennials will be preparing to step-up. Uranus and Pluto are outer planets thus they vibrate global social change and reform. Here is where the real work begins.
Without effort no-thing changes and hope withers. Authenticity. Courage. Vulnerability. These 3 words are part of our daily language now, but how many times do we stop and truly consider their true meaning for “myself?” Real time, with all its tastes, smells and sensations is irreplaceable folks. We have a choice each moment about who, and where “I” want to be.
“O’ beautiful, for spacious skies but now those skies are threatening. They’re beating plowshares into swords for this tired old man that we elected king. Armchair warriors often fail and we’ve been poisoned by these fairy tales. The lawyers clean up all details since daddy had to lie.”
Say farewell to the old and please honor the new by releasing self-imposed resistance to the truth that is trying to become Self-Evident. This is a chance to develop that project you have been thinking about, embark on an adventure you have dreamed of and take chances in initiating what your intuitive Self has been telling you to do. As this prospect becomes increasingly visible and real, doubts and uncertainties may arise. Rest assured, just as the dawn that inevitably turns into day, by TRUSTING your own inner guidance, aka God-Spark, you will succeed.
Re-Engineering Life! Everyone on Mothership Earth has felt the impact of this powerful vibration. No matter what country you reside in pay attention to any call-to-action-Patriotism. Question everything!!! Especially your representatives and leaders. This is how governments stay in control. They want us to believe there is an “enemy” out there so they can protect us (thank you Mommy and Daddy) and in the process take away our inalienable rights. Always-always-always-always-follow-the-money!
Be the solution…..Not a problem.
Where am I on the “game-board?” When you read the sentence above what was your initial internal response? Did you assume I meant you were part of the problem? Did you assume I was encouraging you to be “be the solution and it’s not a problem to be the solution?” Or some other variation thereof? It’s important because before any external change can occur internal change has to occur. Projections. “White Lies” and dirty little secrets always come out in the end. Point of view! Remain neutral for clarity.

Each of the 7 meetings over the past few years have acted as Light Code Activations. Or, think of it as an “upgrade” to our individual Operating System (OS) aka DNA. Uranus calls out to the “radicals” and Pluto wants to maintain control by calling out to “conservatives.” No ONE is in control. Re-defining the “status quo.” There is NO quick fix. It takes time. The more resistance we offer up, the more painful life becomes. There is no movement without tension. Chaos always precedes birth. The Quickening!
“But I know a place where we can go and wash away this sin. We’ll sit and watch the clouds roll by and the tall grass wave in the wind. Just lay your head back on the ground and let your hair spill all around me. Offer up your best defense, but this is the end. This is the end of the innocence.”
Jesus was born during a Uranus-Pluto opposition and we’re still trying to integrate and define the simple message of the Golden Rule. Do unto others as you would have done unto yourself. This is going to take a concerted effort on the part of many and the real work is about to begin. Technology, the Internet and the digital world will help to expedite matters. Yep, that’s all Uranus territory. Privacy. Free Speech. Can we say “internet trolls?” Where is the line in the sand? Who gets to decide? Expect change in the Internet here in the US now that the FCC has become involved. Change. Change. Change.
So, what’s a human to do?
How about getting to know someone you disagree with? Several years ago I met a Christian Blogger (here) and I would never thought he and I would be friends. Guess what? He’s a triple Scorpio and he squares my Aquarius/Leo stuff. Our blogs are different but I know him, as a person. Here’s a great story of a truck driver who called Muslims “scum” after the fire at a Mosque in Texas recently. The Iman invited the truck driver to come by and yes, there was a “happy ending.”
How about being real with people? We all have strengths and weaknesses. Accept both. The reason I have this blog is because I had resisted change for so long that I had the rug yanked out from under me. Fell flat on my face. I considered asking for help a “weakness.” I asked for help. I have found that I can share my story of survival with clients who are struggling. We ALL struggle from time to time. Be yourself, you are more than enough, I promise. As Dr. Suess said, “those who mind don’t matter and those who matter don’t mind.”
How about unplugging from technology? This moment, right now, right here is all there is. Go outside, BE in nature. Leave your phone inside when you’re outside. Can you turn it off for a few hours and just Be? If technology is so wonderful why do all the Tech Giants send their children to private schools that do NOT have computers? Hmm.
Find your imagination again. Try something new, anything, for 21 days in a row. Little things. Write down goals. Write down dreams. Do you remember what you wanted to be when you were a kid? How many times have you failed? Did you get back up and try something different? We only fail when we do not get back up. Time is the most precious commodity we have. Once you spend it, time exists only as a memory.
The Changing of the Guard!
“Who knows how long this will last. Now we’ve come so far, so fast, but, somewhere back there in the dust that same small town in each of us I need to remember this. So baby give me just one kiss and let me take a long last look before we say goodbye. Just lay your head back on the ground and let your hair fall all around me. Offer up your best defense, but this is the end. This is the end of the innocence.”
