Lyrics: Van Morrison – In the Garden
“The streets are always wet with rain after a summer shower when I saw you standin’ in the garden, in the garden wet with rain. You wiped the teardrops from your eye in sorrow as we watched the petals fall down to the ground, and as I sat beside you I felt the great sadness that day in the garden. And then one day you came back home. You were a creature all in rapture. You had the key to your Soul and you did open that day you came back to the garden.”
Coming out of 2015 the big global topics are Oil, China and the Middle East. Here in the US we watched Wall St. reach record highs, gas-pump-prices and interest rates reach record lows and the so-called “unemployment rate” reach acceptable levels. In reality the road between Wall St. and Main St. has widened substantially, the Middle Class shrunk more and it’s easy to see that “austerity ain’t working.” We’ve got credit/debt bubbles, a Cold War brewing, a currency war, Cyber-warfare, inequality and we can’t print enough Helicopter Money fast enough to stimulate anything. There’s a little man with big daddy-issues in North Korea. Bubbles always burst and we are long over-due for a correction. Who is going to save us? Ignite the Creation Engine!
In 1989 The Wall Fell.
Eclipses activate humans. The New Moon Eclipse @ 18 Pisces on March 8th (EST) opens the door to a brand new reality. Welcome to the Post-Religious Era. It will take about 6 months to begin consciously deconstructing early-childhood-religious-conditioning. That was then, this is Now! Instead of looking at others to save us perhaps the question is “why do I think can’t save myself? What if, by saving myself, I save others?” Ignite the Creation Engine!
Neptune rules Pisces, the natural 12th House of the Creation Womb of Imagination. Neptune generates more heat internally than it takes in from the Sun. Gestation. The Swing-Time. Between here and there, then and now, this and that. Space. Grace. Retrospection. Recollection. Revelation. Recognition. Redemption. Ubiquitous in nature, the vibration is like Wi-Fi. Everywhere and always invisible. Intuitive by nature. Feminine Yin. How much do you trust yourself? Ignite the Creation Engine!
Sun/Moon – Jupiter/North Node –Saturn – T-Square: Our participation is very much needed. Get squeezed hard enough and we are forced to bring order to the chaos. All’s fair in love and war, right? Maybe – maybe not. It depends on who has the power and how they wield ‘that’ power. Here in the USA Inc. we have the Constitution to act as a guiding force to keep the power out of any one person/group’s hands. The original plan! We’ve been conditioned to believe that we are protected by certain unalienable rights. Originalists love the Constitution. It works great for everyone except non-whites and anyone with a vagina.
“The olden summer breeze was blowin’ on your face. The light of God was shinin’ on your countenance divine and you were a violet color as you sat beside your father and your mother in the garden. The summer breeze was blowin’ on your face within your violet you treasure your summery words, and as the shiver from my neck down to my spine ignited me in daylight and nature in the garden.”
In 2016 we experience the Chiron Return of the Uranus-Pluto conjunction in Virgo. Fifty years and counting! Bernie Sanders. Young people and Old Hippies love him. He appears to be trying to give birth to the Flower Power Generation’s Dream that will be birthed by Millennials. The gift of Chiron is in giving to another what we cannot give to ourselves. It is the ultimate Paradox as we seek to balance the Beast and Divinity within. Pay attention to Bernie and do your own research, because he’s got some interesting ideas that will resonate with many who were busy living large in the 60’s.
Black Moon Lilith – Uranus-Eris – Pluto T-Square: Anger and rage at the hypocrisy suddenly comes to the surface. Where did all those 20-somethings come from anyway? They have spoken direct to Gloria Steinem, Madeline Albright and Hillary Clinton. Back in the day Boomers were taught to go “where the boys are,” but this feisty group has Pluto currently transiting their Uranus, Neptune and Saturn. They have Pluto in Scorpio and cannot understand why anyone would vote for anyone based on gender. They view “labels” differently. They appear to be Counter-Intuitive. Labels create separation!
For my fellow Baby Boomers we are the Minority now. In their world they are all connected, thanks to the Internet and have never been without a 3rd Screen. Non-Establishment! They are old enough now to realize they’ve been handed a Mighty Mess and the “old farts” running the show in Washington won’t be around in 50 years to deal with the consequences or help clean up the mess. We have to start now in 2016. Ignite the Creation Engine!
Sun/Moon – Chiron – South Node Conjunction: Moral Responsibility. Do we have a responsibility to clean up the mess we’ve made? Depends on who you ask! Ask those in the countries that have been destroyed by the profit-driven-war-machine. Old-time-religion has given us our values, culture and worldview. Do unto others as you would have done unto you. Right? Being human is very complicated and more complex. Being stubborn won’t help matters. Old unresolved wounds prevent trusting in the process of Life. Ignite the Creation Engine!
There are some people who will never be happy. They find ways to justify their unhappiness or problems by blaming others/groups, blaming time, blaming life itself, and sometimes blaming themselves. The victim mentality is easy to spot. They say “why bother trying to do anything, it’ll never change.” These folks have not accepted the past. Making excuses about why something is a certain way is avoiding responsibility for Self. And then there are those folks are simply afraid to participate and resent everyone else for trying. We will forever be victims until we accept the past as it is, “the PAST.” That’s why the same thing keeps happening over and over. Accept it!
Jupiter conjunct North Node: Helping and healing. This is a major confidence builder as we let go of our “someone-save-me-security-blanket.” We are each encouraged to be of service to others. The more we participate in life, the “better” for all of us, not “more.” We all want to BE “at peace” but the world is messy. Working in our own neighborhood or locally can make a difference. No one is a victim unless they believe they are and we will save ourselves. Question what you have been taught, what you think, what you believe and what you hope. Question everything. Deeper than that, trust the silence of your Being, because that is where Pure Sanity resides. TRUST YOURSELF! Ignite the Creation Engine!
“And you went into a trance. Your childlike vision became so fine and we heard the bells inside the church. We loved so much and felt the presence of the youth of Eternal summers in the garden and as it touched your cheeks so lightly. Born again you were and blushed and we touched each other lightly, and we felt the presence of the Christ.”
1999 – The Place of Bending Time and Space.
Black Moon Lilith Yod (Chiron/South Node – Sedna Base): Over the next 9 years Uranus will conjunct everyone’s natal Sedna in Aries and Taurus. If you were born between 1940 and 1955 Uranus will activate your natal Sedna this year. “Privilege” is institutional not personal. Native Americans know that their children will not learn about the value of their ancestor’s contributions from any textbook. What you can expect, especially if you are male, is to understand how “others” have worked around “privilege.” Women work around men to get things done. Black people work around white people to get things done. It’s the unspoken white elephant in the room, no pun intended.
Why does the USA Inc., a global leader, not use the Metric System like 99% of the planet? We are the 1%! In 1999 NASA lost a $125 million-dollar Mars Orbiter because one engineering team used metric units while another used the “customary units” for a key spacecraft operation. Research shows that NASA alone has lost almost $1 billion dollars as a result of “failures” and “mistakes” not too different from the Mars orbiter. That’s our tax dollars at work.
In 1927 Congress was bombarded by millions of people sending petitions to adopt the metric system. However, the government turned a deaf ear to its citizens and favored a lobby by the manufacturing industry, citing the cost of the conversion. This has been going on for a very long time. Candidates have got this all wrong. Send money directly to the voters instead of buying negative advertising. I wonder how much cheaper or more expensive it would be? How much does a “vote” costs these days?
Saturn square Neptune: Saturn loves structure and order, but resists change. Neptune is our OS (operating system) between the ego and the Universe (God). “If no one notices me do I exist?” They delivered the perfect existential crisis last Spring. We’ve felt this for a year now. Think back to all the confusion you experienced. Putting the finishing touches on a work of art they started in 1989 we are called on to fully integrate the need for structure with the desire for Connection. How does “bending time and space” look? Saturn is preparing to station retrograde on the 25th and we come-face-to-face-with-our-own-self-inflicted-limitation. Step back. Take a breath. Remember, we are deconstructing very old religious conditioning from our childhood.
This is that deep sadness many feel. Humans chose suffering as the means for spiritual growth. Look at how we structure our lives so we can be “safe.” There is no one person or group that can guarantee our “safety.” Frustration brings awareness. It all really is an illusion. There truly is only “this moment in time.” It takes time, but we really are okay. Accepting the truth is not easy nor is it pleasant.
The greatest lie any of us was ever told was “that I have to DO something to BE somebody.” See what conditioning needs to be addressed. By letting it go we ease the transition into the next level of awareness. Everyone alive inherited the agreement to play the “game” but just so you know, you can cancel that contract anytime you decide to! The truth is that we are supposed to “BE myself and I can DO anything.” That was then, this is NOW! Ignite the creation Engine!
“And I turned to you and I said no guru, no method, no teacher, just you and I and nature and the father in the garden.’ No Guru, no method, no teacher, just you and I and nature, and the Father and the Son and the Holy Ghost in the garden wet with rain. No Guru, no method, no teacher, just you and I and nature and the holy ghost, in the garden, in the garden, wet with rain. No Guru, no method, no teacher, just you and I and nature and the Father in the garden.”
