GMO Labeling Hearing

December 10, 2014

The US Congress is holding a hearing today on whether states should be allowed to require our Betters to tell us whether or not they’re poisoning our food.  Suggestions on how we might respond…

Portals galore coming up.  The major firework is the sixth exact Square between Uranus and Pluto – all about our Yintegrity (our willingness to trust our Intuitions more than our thoughts, moment to moment).  It’s a great month to open to our Witness, as both our thoughts and our Emotions are Strong.

Mercury is Out of Bounds till December 31, Venus Out of Bounds till December 24.

At half-past 5am PST on December 11, the Moon crosses Juno, which is Stationary.

Juno turns Retrograde on December 15, but there’s lots going on before then.

For instance, the Moon-Juno meeting is part of a Grand Sextile, one of the most favorable Configurations in the Heavens.  It’s not the strongest Grand Sextile in the flock, but it’s there, and it provides fabulous support for Permanent World-Class Transformations in the way we Live.  Hold your Wants close to your Heart.

If we’re willing to count the asteroids Persephone (Death and Rebirth) and Urania (Astrology), that is.  The other members of the Grand Sextile are the Nodes (Linear Time), Ceres (Sustainability), and the asteroid Chaos (Potential).

Then on December 12 at half past 2am PST, the Moon moves into a position to provide major Epiphanies about Who We’re Becoming and What we need to Manifest.  While this peaks at 2am, it will be live for six hours before and after.

See  on December 12.

The Moon makes a Mjolnir across the Uranus-Pluto Square (Insight about how to Manifest Yintegrity) while the Moon itself Squares Saturn – which creates a Uranus Mjolnir across the Moon-Saturn Square (Insights about what part of our True Self is Most Important to bring forth).

Mjolnirs form when a third planet crosses the far midpoint between two planets that are Square to one another.  It means major Insights, Epiphanies.

Linear Time is optional, but most of us most of the time don’t know that.

“We might ask, ‘What do I want to do with my life, and how can I find out?’

“Or alternatively, ‘What does life want me to do, and how can I find out?’ “

“To find out what to do with our life and how to get the most out of it, we think, analyze, speculate, and proceed strategically.

“To find out what life wants us to do, we are receptive, fluid, alert, attentive, and present.”

–Felix Wolf, The Art of Navigation, p.1.

The essence of this 2012-2015 Uranus-Pluto adventure is the Universe showing us all of the places where we’re out of Yintegrity.  This dance has been lit up in June and September of 2012, May and October of 2013, April 2014, and now.  The last dance will be in March 2015.  The “now” part is exact at 10pm PST December 14.  December 14

This is the Uranus-Pluto Square itself.

The “special” part of these last two episodes of Yintegrity-Revealed is that they’re tied by the shoelaces to our Karma.  We’re down to the places where things like Fear of Past Deaths hold our Yintegrity away from us.  As we go into these Shadow-Puppet Dramas, it will be useful to remember that…

If we’ve “been here before,” if we recognize the circumstances (which is actually what happens when we get anxious), it doesn’t mean we know what the outcome will be – it means our shoes our thick with the sticky tar of Karma.  Once we recognize that we’re embedded in a Karmic Archetype, we can Choose to Act differently this time, to step out of the Drama. 

That’s why our Witness is so important – so there’s someone home to recognize that we’ve been here before.

I’ve never understood Lucid Dreaming – it always seemed to me that it would be better to use our Dreams as Guides, rather than try to direct them from our Egos.  But now I understand.  Our Karmic Trances are nothing but Dreams!  So Lucid Dreaming is practice for stepping out of a Karmic Trance! 

Uranus (our True Self, able to be Present in the current moment) is now within our customary three degrees of Sensitivity to it’s late-January Conjunction with the South Node (our Karma or Tranced-out Self, stuck in past Dramas).  Godzilla meets King Kong.

The full impact of which could easily be delayed till 9pm PST December 15 and/or 3am PST December 16   December 15 and/or  December 16

The Moon Opposes Uranus at 9pm on the 15th, and crosses the North Node at 3am on the 16th.  These specific Portals are open for six hours before and after – but the larger Uranus-Pluto Portal is open from October till May.

Not that we expect this sort of outer-planet dance to hit its crescendo at a specific moment in time – it’s more likely to be something we’ve been working on for years.  These windows could just bring a peak circumstance where we’re particularly Challenged or Enlightened or both.

The Intensity doesn’t slack off after December 16, since the Solstice will be huge.

Meanwhile, during this whole dance, Uranus is Stationary (that is, Very Strong), turning Direct fifteen minutes prior to the Solstice, which in turn occurs two and a half hours prior to the New Moon.  Big Day.

The important part about Uranus-Pluto isn’t warfare between our True Self and our Programming (which is a painting of our Karma), it’s Growth in Consciousness, as we Witness our Karma playing out and Choose to step out of the Drama.

Auspicious Full Moon

December 5, 2014


Reminder – this type face is for general readers interested only in what the “stars” and charts have to say.

This type face and indentation is for folks who know a little astrology or want to learn more.

This type face and indentation (when extant) is for introducing new astrological concepts.

∀ ∀ ∀ ∀ ∀

The December 6 Full Moon at half-past 4am PST is very busy and very Auspicious.  It’s particularly Powerful for…

  • Communications with Lasting Effect 
  • Growth in Consciousness
  • Taking advantage of Universal Trends
  • Creating Miracles 
  • Confronting Fear 
  • Rebirth

Copy  to your browser address window for other time zones – WordPress is still denying me access to links.

Communications with Lasting Effect derive from the Sun’s Conjunction with Mercury and Ceres.  Growth in Consciousness, Going with the Flow, Creating Miracles, and Confronting Fear, respectively, evolve from Yods to Juno, Pluto, Chiron (all in the first chart), and Sedna (second chart).  Rebirth comes out of Haumea’s Exact Opposition to Eris (second chart) the day before the Full Moon.

The Communication, Growth, Trend, and Miracle angles become particularly Auspicious because they’re wrapped in a Grand Sextile along with the Full Moon (first chart).  Confrontation of Fear and Rebirth get their Auspiciousness from the overarching Haumea Kite (second chart).

Find out more about Kites, Grand Sextiles, Yods, Sednas, and other terms by clicking on the term in the list of “Categories” at right.

The Challenges that offer Certification of Mastery derive from…

  • Discouragement about the effectiveness of our Communication – which is overcome by finding Awe about how our Mission Guides us using our Desires as prompts

A Chiron T-Square based on the Full Moon Opposition is supported by its Yod, which is based on Juno Sextile to the North Node (first chart).

  • Fear of Surrender – which is resolved by genuine Wonder around examples of how Effortless our Life became when we Trusted our Emotions and our Ability to Manifest what we Need

Pluto T-Squares the Nodal Axis, supported by its Yod based on Juno Sextile to the Moon (first chart).

  • Allowing ourselves to Expand so quickly that our Ego becomes Overwhelmed – which can be handled by being Curious about how to be Relentless in Identifying the Elephant in the room

A Stationary Jupiter T-Square is grounded in an Opposition between Pallas and Sedna.  This is supported by the Grand Trine between Jupiter, Eris, and a Stellium of an Out of Bounds Venus, Ixion, and Pholus (second chart).

The Grand Sextile (first chart) is composed of Sun-Mercury-Ceres, the Full Moon itself, the Nodes (with Uranus Conjunct the South Node), Juno, and a Vacancy filled nicely by two asteroids, Persephone and Urania.  Persephone is the Goddess of Seasonality and Cycles including Death and Rebirth, and Urania is the Muse of Astrology.

A new Chiron-Neptune Cycle began in February 2010. 

Chiron symbolizes the Choice between on the one hand Despair (or Limiting Beliefs that prevent one from seeing Possibilities) if one continues with one’s current set of Beliefs and ways of thinking, and on the other hand Miracles if one is willing to PIAVA Rebirth into a new World and tolerate the resulting Ego Death. 

Neptune represents our relationship with everything bigger than our current Identity – our Culture, our species, our Planet, God/Goddess, etc., depending on how inflated you are.  No pox on inflation; at certain times we recommend it.

So a 50- to 70-year-long Chiron-Neptune Cycle is about potentially Miraculous Rebirth of our Cultures, our species, our relationship to our Planet, and our relationship to our Gods and Goddesses.  The implication of Chiron is that some may not make the transition, if they’re unable to evolve from Limiting Beliefs which preclude the Rebirth.

Neptune Initiated Chiron at 27 Aquarius, “An ancient pottery bowl filled with fresh violets.

Neptune-Chiron Initiations have historically correlated with significant disruptions and transitions in economy, politics, and Identity.  The prior Initiation occurred at the end of World War II, when folks were invited to figure out something else to do with their bomb factories.  (The US and USSR didn’t take the invitation, and the US still hasn’t.)  The late nineteenth-century Initiation prior to that was the beginning of what historians call the Long Depression, begun when bonds supporting North American transcontinental railroads collapsed – similar to the collapse of US housing derivatives in the year prior to 2010.

As this recently deceased post-WWII era ended, a lot of folks were caught off guard, and some have still not made the transition.  Since we’re co-creating the New Paradigm as we go, it’s difficult to suggest productive ways for folks to adapt, other than PIAVA.  Whenever there is a big transition there’s always a long tail created by the people who refuse to leave the Old Paradigm.  If they have enough Power, they can even create a bubble for themselves and appear to defy the Shift.  Some folks haven’t even left the Old Testament, for example. 

Once you find the Miracle, you can generally “fly under the radar” for a while.  You don’t really need a lot of support from a larger Culture that hasn’t transitioned yet – Community is enormously useful, but not necessary in any traditional sense, as “virtual” Community has become possible.  I have great faith in the Lizards’ ability to continue to trod most of humanity under their scales, as they always have.  But some folks are more optimistic than I, and can imagine reprogramming an entire Culture and economy to support folks more equitably than in the recent past – and more power to them!  Here’s one great example…

Sorry, WordPress won’t let me make that into a link, so you’ll have to block and copy it into your browser’s address line.

There are many examples of these trends already occurring in real life, we just don’t hear about them from a media owned by the titans of the Old Paradigm.  The Schumacher Center ( collects them, as does Sharable (  We hear about them when they get big enough to impact someone’s vested interests, such as the conflicts between Old-Paradigm taxis and New-Paradigm car-sharing programs.

Uranus-Pluto Again

December 4, 2014

Just opened this book “at random” to this page; a great exposition on Uranus-Pluto!  It’s Felix Wolf’s The Art of Navigation: Travels with Carlos Castaneda and Beyond, pp.98-100…

“As I came closer to my hometown, however, heaven started to fade away and made room for a growing apprehension as my internal dialogue intensified.”

” ‘How does a warrior deal with his family?’

” ‘Well, impeccably, I suppose, just like everything else.’

“But I had no idea what this meant in practice.  My apprehension came from the wave of pressure that I was anticipating, a pressure to conform to expectations.  After living outside the mold for so long, I felt myself approaching a minefield of expectations.”

Like going home for the holidays, eh?

“I had just begun to live in a new paradigm, by a new set of beliefs.  It entailed living in a direct relationship with intent, beckoning life for guidance rather than imposing my own ideas.  Instead of engaging in strategic planning and establishing a career, my interest and attention were directed toward silent knowledge, intuition, signs, omens, synchronicities and other manifestations of spirit.  I had developed a passion for unpredictability, for erasing my personal history, for stalking and gathering energy.  There was no way I could share any of this with my family and friends without triggering a wave of resistance.”

” ‘So, what are your plans now?’ was one of the first questions my stepfather asked while we were still driving home from the train station.  ‘You can’t keep working as a tourist guide.  These things don’t look good on a resume,’ he continued.”

“Individual intent is a force that originates from our innermost beliefs.  It is a force that creates our reality and shapes our life in a complex interplay with the intent of the people around us, with the collective human intent, and with universal intent.  Individual intent is superficially related to wanting, but essentially these two impulses are quite distinct, and sometimes even opposed…  In a manner of speaking, intent could be seen as the will of the heart and wanting as the will of the mind.  Ideally they should be aligned.

“Alignment is a key principle when it comes to the force of intent.  Given that there is no conflict between the heart and the mind, the more aligned my intent is with the intent of the culture around me, the more it will manifest…  Conflicting intents are like opposing energy fields.  The wave of resistance that formed in the room while I was sharing some of my new views with my parents was so strong as to be nearly tangible.  It was as if the viscosity of the air had changed, creating a pressure on my midsection and throat.”

“In my experience it is futile to try to change other people’s convictions.  If we want to eliminate the interference of someone’s conflicting intent, it is much more effective to remove ourself from this person’s sphere of influence, or better still, to become less conspicuous, less accessible.  Often it was enough to just listen more and talk less.  Ultimately, I learned that it was not necessary to align anybody’s intent with mine.  The only worthwhile strategy in order to get beyond the world of problems was to align my intent with universal intent.  This, of course, is the art of navigation proper.”

Background Energies I

December 4, 2014

mnax5735bp Manganaxinite is a Borosilicate of Calcium Manganese and Aluminum, any of which, not to mention the Boron, help us rebalance our Identity with our Mission and our Personality and our Relationships.


I should be summarizing the Big astroevents of December and 2015, but I don’t much feel like wandering out of the Present Moment at the moment.  So let’s talk about some of the astroprocesses going on in the background.  They can be profound, but we’re usually focused on the foreground, so we don’t often consider them. 

The Signs are a good example.  For example, qhen Pluto leaves Scorpio later this month – at the Solstice – we’ll all breathe a big sigh of Relief.  Even us Intensity Junkies who thrive when “Getting to the Bottom of Things (Scorpio) is The Most Important Thing (Saturn)” will appreciate the break.  Saturn’s been in Scorpio since October 2012.  A zillion astrologers write about the Signs, though, so we don’t usually feel the need to.

They’re Big, however.  Consider Uranus in Aries.  It’s been there since March 2011 (after dipping a toe briefly in mid-2010).  Yes, Uranus is Squaring Pluto, and that’s Big – Bigger in our book, but that’s just our particular angle on astrology.  Uranus in Aries is Big too.  Aries is about Trusting Spirit to lead us into the Unknown.  Aries has an assignment for us.  We’re supposed to Create something from scratch – but we don’t know what it is.  It’s like a box of Ikea furniture and a blindfold. 

Uranus stands for our True Self.  So Uranus in Aries suggests we need to Rebirth a new Self of some sort, from scratch, without a blueprint.  One step at a time, trusting we’ll get the instructions for the next step, from some unknown source, when we get there.  Uranus is also famous for Disruption.  It’s the Soul Disrupting any Patterns that will no longer serve who you’re becoming, whoever that might be.  So whatever Disruptions have been going on in your young Life, consider those instructions for the next step.  Like the Water.  Interpretation difficulties?  PIAVA.

Marie Manuchehri, in her book Intuitive Self-Healing (pp.98-99; thanks to a faithful reader for the tip) gives us clues…

“I know Sarah has had a few health issues connected to her throat chakra, indicating that she has yet to identify her authenticity.

” ‘Getting to know your truth, Sarah, is a personal experience.  Your reality is based on your individual feelings, because each of us reacts to life differently.  Many times we repress our truth because we unconsciously feel that others won’t love us if we express ourselves genuinely.  Getting past the fear is what will empower you.  Your truth is a gift to humanity.  If you reveal yourself, others will learn from your unique interpretation of life, and you will free yourself in the process.’

” ‘How can we help her to express herself?’ her mom asked.

” ‘First, it’s important to realize that Sarah has a big heart and wants to please everyone.  She feels the feelings of others very deeply, so she holds back her words so as not to hurt anyone.  Sarah, you will need to put aside your sympathetic feelings and express yourself despite what you pick up about what others are feeling.’ “

Which brings us to Neptune in Pisces.  Neptune, if we’re running the Energy as we should, is where we get lost.  If we aren’t running our Neptune Energy that way, it’s running that way Unconsciously.  It we aren’t getting lost, we aren’t Learning, and we aren’t Growing.  And Pisces, of course, being “ruled” by Neptune, is also about where we get lost, and where we get Overwhelmed.  It’s about Finishing Business, which means throwing ourselves into the morass of our Overwhelming Emotions over and over again till we start to recognize a few mileposts and begin to understand the territory.

Here’s another quote from Intuitive Self-Healing (pp.80-81)…

“Human beings have been collectively evolving the idea of self-love (third chakra).  What does self-love look like and how can I know that I’ve attained it?  If you have worked on loving yourself, you might think it’s a daunting task, one that you’ll labor at for years.  But here’s some good news!  The human race has reached the tipping point about becoming emotionally aware of self-love, which means that as a group we will be spending more time in the fourth chakra.  This means that more and more people will open their hearts and care for others.  The fourth chakra will literally expand in size and many people will become empathetic.  To be empathic means to feel the feelings of others, even those of complete strangers.  Empathy is a gift that will lead us to feed, clothe, and support our world in ways we have yet to imagine.  The challenge of being empathic is to become comfortable with the feelings of others – even when others are sad, lonely, or distressed – and remain dedicated to their emotions and life.”

If you notice some potential friction between this Uranus in Aries business and Neptune in Pisces, your Intuition is excellent.  It has to be one or the other, right?  Well, no, it’s Both/And.  And how do we do that?  Well, we just have to throw ourselves into that morass enough times that we come out the other side able to be neutral about Emotions.  That’s not an oxymoron, it’s a paradox.  If Truth isn’t a paradox, routinely, then you’re probably still looking through the lens of Duality. 

To be neutral doesn’t mean you don’t care, it means you don’t get lost in Overwhelm any more.  It means you’re able to be Present, able to relate to the Emotion as a Witness, as opposed to Identifying with it.  That’s Compassion.  When you’re neutral you’re able to be fully Present for an Emotion without having to fix it, and without getting lost in it.  From that position you’re actually able to be helpful to someone who is lost in the Emotion.

After all, Chiron is also in Pisces, has been since February 2011.  So if we “hold our mouth right” as my father used to say, or PIAVA it as I’m wont to say, we might find “some good news.”  Chiron in Pisces says that it’s all the more critical that we cannonball into our most Overwhelming Emotions – then step outside and Witness them (“I feel shitty” instead of “I am shit”), lovingly, so we can be Empathetic with our own Pain.  Enlist a helper before you dive in, so they can remind you to Witness, and Witness lovingly, just before you drown.


What about the Cycles?  Wouldn’t hurt to review those either.

Pluto Initiated Saturn in November 1982 at 28 Libra, “A person becoming aware of spiritual forces surrounding and assisting them.”  Saturn-Pluto is a darkish Energy (The Most Important Thing is Transformation and Rebirth or, to the negative thinker, Death is the Ultimate Limitation), best recently known for 9/11 and its manipulation by the Lizards.  By 9/11/2001, the Waning Saturn-Pluto Square was a couple of weeks past its prime, but they trotted out their pre-scripted “Patriot” Act anyway.  At the time they were printing lapel buttons saying “Oh well, I wasn’t using my civil rights anyway.”  The Lizzies waited till 9/11 to take advantage of the Out of Bounds Moon.

With Saturn now 45 degrees behind Pluto, the Cycle is in the Void phase.  The Waning Octile was exact on November 27, so…

If you met any hassles last week, the appropriate Response would be to Cancel, Neutralize, Upgrade – those Demons are wax melting into the Cauldron, and can be safely dismissed.  Of course the Lizards will play them up (as the UK did last week) to try to keep folks in Fear, so they can feed. 

The next Initiation is due in January 2020.

Interesting.  We’ll get to the rest of the Long-Term Cycles shortly.


Intriguing newscast on the Lizard-owned media tonight.  The media normally pays more attention to the property damage from protests than they do to what’s being protested.  Tonight however they definitely leaned toward sympathy with the victims of police brutality more than sympathy with the victims of the resulting protests.  That’s a significant shift, and if it’s a trend, it may indicate that the Lizards are coming to feel that repressing the People with violence will hurt their wealth accumulation more than controlling the People with the Fear of violence.  While Obama has suggested review of police militarization, he hasn’t reduced the practice.  His handlers may be having second thoughts.
