Uranus in Aries

March 13, 2011

[Natrochalcite (Hydrated Sodium Copper Sulfate Hydroxide, the brighter green microcrystals) on Khronkite (Hydrated Sodium Copper Sulfate, the forest green base); we provide the chemical formulas so you can relate the Stone’s vibration to how the individual chemicals operate in your body.  For instance, Sodium will raise your blood pressure, making you more alert.  Copper will strengthen your bones, allowing you to stand taller, and preserve your myelin, maintaining your sensuality.  Sulfur adds flexibility and Oxygen (Sulfate is one Sulfur with four Oxygen) provides power.  A great source for information is The World’s Healthiest Foods.  And Water (hydrated) is the Mother Fluid which bathes our connective tissue and carries our instincts and intuitions from our Portals-to-the-Universe to The-Rest-of-Us.  So channeling this Stone may make learning, and operating on that learning, easier, more effective, and more fun.  And then there’s the interaction terms (for instance, Copper Sulfate was the Blue Vitriol of Alchemy, which can powerfully dissolve Identity).  Green, of course, triggers Heart Energy – compassion is essential for self-transformation.  Not that the Stone was chosen analytically; it was chosen intuitively, the above is after-the-fact.  It pays to court both the Intuitive and the Analytical; the combination enhances your Bullshit Meter, which is important these days.]


As we’ve said we’re no longer under the influence of the Solstice Eclipse Grand Cross between Jupiter-Uranus, Juno, and Pluto-Dragon, which has for the last several months been providing us with an enormous opportunity to release impediments to our assisting the Ascension of the Planet.

To review.  Last June, Jupiter (the Amplifier) conjoined Uranus (our individual Soul Chord) bang on the Cusp of Aries (brand new beginnings, new infusions of Spirit).  Either Uranus entering Aries, or Jupiter conjoining Uranus, implies for us as individuals a major New Download from our Soul Chord, or, should we choose to accept it, a revised Mission on the Planet.  Well, as is their wont, both Jupiter and Uranus subsequently backed up into Pisces – which meant that they were seeking out any unfinished business to process, so they could be sure that our Earthly Vehicles were as ready as possible for the New Download.

To assist further in this Eon-scale clearing process, around about the time of the Eclipse that occurred near the December Solstice, the Grand Cross came into focus, and hung around until early March.  The Grand Cross had Jupiter-Uranus on one corner, and Juno on the opposite corner.  Juno represents our Unconscious Identities, most of which we would have adopted through the inertia of prior lifetimes.  Oppositions are about Awareness, so it would be hard to find a more effective consciousness-building process than mirroring our New Soul Chord Download with our Unconscious Identities.  The disparities would glare!

Then, to top it off, the other two corners of the Grand Cross comprised the Moon’s Nodes, which are all about past (South Node) and future (North Node) lives.  So not only would the inadequacies of our Unconscious Identities be illuminated, we’d even have ready access to the traumadramas that attached us to them!  Now, put Pluto on the North Node – Pluto which represents that which is unavoidable but transformable – and you have Pluto pulling us inexorably toward where we gotta go.  You see how readily the folks in North Africa and Wisconsin responded.  Now, what about the rest of us? Where is it that we gotta go?  Or is our inertia too great?

Jupiter moved on into Aries “for good” (that is, till it comes back around in 12 years) on January 22, so since then our lives have been speeding ahead, leaving us still struggling to release our Old Identities, even while we’re asked to confront New Realities.  This is all quite on the personal level, so whatever planetary effects are occurring, are just aggregations of the personal.  (Of course, the Planet is undergoing it’s own New Download, as we’ve been stressing for several years – Chiron-Neptune, or Replacing Despair with Miracles.)  So now, finally, Uranus also moves into Aries “for good” (ie, till the next Cycle begins 84 years out), so our Soul begins to sorta catch up with the more tangible aspects of our life.

That’s the astro-picture.  Here’s a very useful view from off-planet…

Here’s an excerpt:

“22.  Because there is no more time to waste in those respects of development and heeding, you will welcome knowing that in the higher vibrations Earth has reached in her ascension course, discernment is easier to master and intuition is stronger. We mention as well that if you can obtain monatomic gold, it will help to enhance your clarity”

And here’s an anonymous comment…

“I have been a bit depressed reading some of your columns on WordPress, and not always finishing them, because I didn’t want to worry more about the world situation. I have been working so hard on positive visualization, and my positivity is often fragile!”

Yes, yes, yes, the Positive Visualization is essential, probably the most effective and important work we can do right now.  But it’s not the whole story.  Without actively working to detach from the Unconscious Identities that intrude into our Consciousness and make our Positivity so fragile, we’re simply outnumbered.

For all of us, Consciousness is just a tip of an iceberg.  “Our” Unconscious, and “The” Unconscious, are so vast, that We As Conscious Beings have little hope to find the levers of healthy control.  To Freud, the “Subconscious” was a dark, dirty dungeon where we hid our most shameful secrets, but to Jung, the “Unconscious” was a daylight basement with the windows papered over, where our True Mission, our Soul Chord, lived.  Jung postulated three overlapping layers to the Unconscious – the Personal Unconscious, which is ours alone (which we correlate to Uranus); the Cultural Unconscious, which contains the currents that carry the evolution of our Families and Tribes and other Collectives that we are joined to (which we interpret Neptune to connect to); and the Universal Unconscious, which sweeps the Planet in this direction or that (Pluto).

We’ve talked at length about how futile it is to resist the movements of Pluto, which we’ve compared to a River – how easy it is to drift with the current, and steer toward one bank or another when we hear the roar of impending rapids or cataracts, and how much hard work it is to labor upstream.  It’s the same with our Monolithic Unconscious, for to each of us as individuals, the three “levels” of the Unconscious are arbitrary boundaries, and we as individuals constantly skate atop a Megalithic Edifice of personal, cultural, and universal urges and directions and commands.  Each intrusion from our Unconscious, each lurch toward fear or anger or discouragement or grief, is a message that part of the Megalith is ready to boil over into Consciousness.

Jose Silva notwithstanding, if we are able to “program” our Un- or Sub-conscious so that it facilitates our Conscious Desires, it’s not because “we” control “it.”  It’s because “we” are able to negotiate win-win with “it.”  If you want to have any Power over the World, start by re-adjusting your sense of who “you” are, to include your Megalithic Unconscious, so that the intrusions are yours.  They come from deeper layers of you, not from outside of you.  In The Nature of Personal Reality, Seth describes exactly how to discover who all of this you is: you simply take responsibility for all of your personal history.

[Zinc modulates Copper in the body.  So if you start to feel painfully lost, contemplate Sphalerite (Zinc Sulfate, below) for a few minutes, then once you get grounded again, return to the Natrochalcite.]

When you take responsibility for all of your personal history, you abandon the Victim perspective, and move into being able to respond to everything in your Life.  Abandoning the Victim perspective does NOT mean you Blame someone else rather than yourself for whatever you disliked.  It means abandoning Blame entirely.  That’s not easy to do, abandoning Blame is like learning a foreign language.  We’re immersed in it.  It means, rather than thinking, They did that to me and I didn’t like it, you train yourself to think, I didn’t like that, and I’m not sure how I’ll do it yet, but I’m going to change it.  Adding …for the highest good of all, or …or something like that, might be useful.  You don’t do it all at once, that would be overwhelming.  You respond as intrusions and disruptions arise.

That’s where tapping is so incredibly valuable.  Intrusions and disruptions of Emotional material can easily overwhelm us, and tie us up for decades.  They cause us to create new Limiting Beliefs which tighten the noose around our Life and narrow our Scope.  And intrusions from the Unconscious are nothing if not Emotional.  Tapping does not diminish the motivating and navigating powers of Emotion; it diminishes the overwhelm that Emotion can create.  The power of the Emotion to guide us and inspire us remain, but now they are no longer barriers, they are facilitators.  Intrusions need to be celebrated, they are the beginnings of New Life.  Tapping them out expands us into our New Soul Essence.  Then we can Visualize Positivity, and do it with Power rather than Fragility.

Dennis Kucinich provides his always-useful perspective on the regression of the USofA to the Third World…

Kucinich’s family was homeless while he was growing up, so he knows whereof he speaks.  The interviewer refers to some wise-guy from Buffalo calling the guvner of Wisconsin and pretended to be David Koch, one of the right-wing industrialists who fund the Tea Party.  The wise-guy recorded the call.  If you haven’t heard it yet, here’s Part 1…

and Part 2… .

And in case you missed the Pizza Story, here’s the national version…

and the international version… .

Miracles are hiding behind every blade of grass and every snowflake.

I Love Irony

February 23, 2011

Au“He who farts in church sits in their own pew” is one of my favorite sayings.  Not terribly compassionate, but pretty harmless really, unless you’re horrified by Natural Gas.  You know well that one of our primary aims here is to help folks recognize their self-sabotaging patterns so they can move to another pew.

The price of Gold since 2000 has gone from $300 to $1400 an ounce, and Silver from $5 to $33 an ounce.  This is not because the value of Gold or Silver has gone up, it’s because the value of the dollar has gone down.  It’s not much different when we look at Pounds or Euros or Yen.  Governments are heavily invested in hiding the declining value of their currencies from us, because currencies are like banks – if everyone tries to get out at once, everything grinds to a halt.  So it’s important to hold up the farce that everything is just fine with the Dollar and Euro and Pound and Yen.

The US and UK have hired two of their biggest banks, JP Morgan Chase and HSBC, to sell Silver and Gold derivatives “short” – that is, they borrow and sell, in order to drive the price down.  If you or I sold something short, we’d be doing it with the intention of buying it later at a reduced price, repaying our loan, and pocketing the profit.  In other words, selling short works when prices are falling.  But in this case, the big banks sell short in order to keep the price from rising even further.  They do this on a huge scale – their total derivative trades dwarf the size of the markets for the actual physical metals – which is illegal, since it’s a manipulation of prices.  But since the governments hired them to do it, it must be okay, right?

Last year, a savvy metals trader in London, by watching the pricing and trading patterns, and by listening to traders for the Big Banks bragging in the pub about how they were shafting the market, was able to discern their methods, and notified the US regulators about what they were doing and how they were doing it.  Even more, the savvy metals trader from London was able to tell the US regulators when they were going to do it and what they were going to do, before they did it.  Well, as you’d expect, the US regulators did nothing.

So now, after giving the regulators more than enough time to respond to his disclosures, the savvy London metals trader has opened up a service where, for $500 a month, he’ll sell you advance information about when the Big Banks are going to hit the metals markets, so you can “frontrun” them, or put in your trades before they put in theirs.  I find that hilariously and gloriously ironic!

The reason all this matters to ordinary folk like us, is that the values of our currencies are continuing to decline.  In the last week, the US Dollar has declined by 1%.  1% a week, if it were continuous, would add up to 50% a year, without compounding.  And that’s relative to other currencies.  The value of a barrel of Crude Oil, when measured in US Dollars as Crude Oil traditionally is, went up 3% in the last week.  You can see that in the sign at your local gas station.  Sure, it may not have been a typical week, but these kinds of weeks are getting more typical, aren’t they, as we tip toward 2012’s Big Pizza Delivery.  The 3% jump in the price of Oil gives a more accurate picture of the slumping value of the US Dollar.

If Oil goes up 50% from here, nothing much else will matter to our well-being, as the World economy will pretty much grind to a halt.  If the value of our currencies continue to drop, Food prices will go through the roof.  We’ve already heard, in comments to this blog, of people who have to choose between toilet paper and Food.  The initial impetus for the regime change in Tunisia, the first domino, was the self-immolation of a street vendor whose Produce cart was confiscated by the police because he couldn’t afford the appropriate bribe.  For folks who spend more than 50% of their income on Food, a 10% increase in the price of Food, or a 10% decline in the value of the currency they buy Food with, is devastating.

So the governments, in trying to hide the flimsiness of their currencies by holding down the price of Gold and Silver, are doing us a huuuuggge favor.  I know, extra cash is very hard to come by these days.  But look at it this way.  In two years a $10 bill, when measured by the amount of Food and energy it will buy, will be worth much less than it is today.  In the same time period, the value of the Gold or Silver you buy today for $10, will buy a lot more Food and energy.  You can go to a reputable local coin dealer and buy pre-1964 silver coins – dimes, quarters, half-dollars, dollars – that have no value to collectors.  They’re called “Junk” Silver coins – no value to collectors.  A pre-1964 dime is 90% Silver, or about 0.08 ounce of Silver, worth around $2.70 at today’s Silver price.  Including a “premium” to keep the dealer reputable, you’d be paying around $3, or a little more, per dime.  You can get the moment-to-moment Silver price, so you know how much to pay, at  Remember when those dimes were worth ten cents?

Unfinished Business

February 21, 2011

Cuprite (Copper Oxide)We’ve been asked to be more explicit about Calleman’s notion that “2012” actually occurs on October 28, 2011.  It’s a graduate course, but Calleman’s website is .

He has a lot to say, more, I think, than any other 2012 commentator I’ve encountered, though the notion that the Planet’s crust comes unhinged from it’s “mantle” (the viscous zone beneath the crust) when the the Planet’s magnet field dissolves as the Poles shift, gives a sliver of credence to something on the order of John Cusack’s version of the story.

But as we’ve always said, in the version of astrology that I’ve been practicing for the last 40-plus years, 2012 is when The Sixties Become Permanent.  I really don’t think there’s any question that we jump from one Reality to another very frequently, or slip through the Veil from one into another, sometimes often in one day.  For instance, as I’ve been shrinking from, praying for release from, tapping out, and occasionally being able to embrace, these Ego Deaths that are streaming at us from the nethers, I’ve been popping in and out of any number of childhood dramas, past lives, and different flavors of “Present Moment Reality.”  In other words, there’s every possibility that ALL of the stories about 2012 will come true, and your  experience(s) of it will just depends on whether you turn right or left at the next light.

The myth that Reality is monolithic, is just another mass hypnosis like linear time.  That’s why various cultures and subcultures are so vehemently defending themselves against their competition, whether it’s in Cairo or Wisconsin, because the protagonists and antagonists are both terrified that the Veil is slipping off of their Monolith, and when it does, a lifetime of investment will be ruined.  I saw a great metaphor on this yesterday, the Wavy Gravy movie Saint Misbehavin’.  Talk to your local art house theater about bringing this to your town, as showings are limited at present.  Wavy assures us that there will be a DVD after the theater showings have run their course, but you wanna be sure not to miss it.  Here’s a trailer, a review, and the producer’s website, where the DVD information should eventually appear.

The other day I was talking to someone about current events, and I made some remark, and they responded with “No, this is The Sixties Becoming Permanent!”  I been talking about that for years, and almost always get a blank stare in response.  So now I hear evidence that I been heard!  And there’s no better verification than the return of Wavy Gravy to the limelight – if anyone personified the Sixies, it’s Wavy.  I haven’t gone on at length yet about just what I mean by The Sixties, but the sit-ins and love-ins in Cairo and Madison and elsewhere sure bring back memories.  Cairo and Chiron have different etymologies, Cairo rooting to something like conquest, and Chiron maybe rooting to something like healing hand, but their homophony is intriguing – exactly the sort of funhouse pun that the Master of Serendipity would use to show us the path.

It will be great to see our Chiron-Neptune Miracles arrive in the form of a shift in the Monolith, from kleptocracy to democracy.  The sit-ins, and the fact that they may be working in some places,  are amazing.  But the power vacuum must be filled by a different sort of leadership, if we’re to see anything but a shift from one kleptocrat to another.  In the US, Congress and the Presidencies have been stealing from the Social Security Insurance Fund for over half a century.  Now our erstwhile Hero of Change, Borat Obummer, refers to Social Security as an “entitlement,” not an annuity.  That’s called reframing.

Jupiter is rushing back into Aries ahead of Uranus, who still dallies in Pisces, and Chiron is rushing into Pisces ahead of Neptune, who still dallies in Aquarius.  Jupiter in Aries means our life is moving forward, ready or not, while our Soul Energy, still in Pisces, still has unfinished business to attend to.  That kinda leaves us hung out to dry, having to relate to daily life and its new challenges without the grounding strength of our Soul Chord.  Meanwhile, our Soul Energy is working with those childhood/pastlife Energies we’ve been unconsciously merged with, patiently working the barbs out so the hooks can be pulled out without making the wound bigger.

Uranus follows into Aries on March 11.  We should feel more supported after that, less like we’re out on a limb.  The last time Uranus was in Aries was 1927-1935.  That was an adventure.

Chiron meanwhile, the healing hand, which is to say, healing applied where it’s needed, has dived into the Piscean ocean.  We can expect to catch only glimpses of Chiron over the next few years, as he spends most of his time immersed in healing the lowest levels of our astral roots.  Leaving Aquarius, Chiron abandons our reframing efforts.  We’ve been attempting to heal by reframing our perspectives.  Like Einstein says, you can’t solve a problem by using the same thinking that postulated the problem.  Or as the Buddhists would put it, Change Your Mind.  Now the healing will happen in the emotional roots of an issue, not the intellectual hair on it.  Nothing ideological about the sit-ins in Cairo and Madison – simply, this is what we need.

The last time Chiron was in Pisces was 1960-1969.  Curious, eh?  The Uranus-Pluto Conjunction that marked the 60s – which we might call mandatory (Pluto) individuality (Uranus) – occurred Opposite Chiron, at 18 Virgo, “A Ouija Board.”  The reason we call 2012 When the Sixties Become Permanent is cuz the Uranus-Pluto Cycle reaches the Fourth Harmonic in 2012-2015.  In the first quarter of a cycle, from Conjunction to Fourth Harmonic, the Energy of the Cycle goes underground to fortify the roots of the Energy.  Once we get to the Fourth Harmonic, the Energy comes full into the Light.

Neptune follows Chiron into Pisces on April 3, and then again (after a return into Aqua to pick up a few forgotten issues in August) on February 3, 2012, if we’re still here then.  Neptune in Pisces is heavy.  The last time Neptune was in Pisces was 1846-1862.  Not sure it’s a reality yet in the USofA, as a great deal of the Energy behind the Tea Party and Republican victories is obvious racism, but on at least a technical level, 1846-62 saw the beginning of the move toward freeing the slaves.  Neptune is at home in Pisces.  Both represent the Ocean.  Total confusion when viewing the World through material eyes, and complete clarity when viewing the World through spiritual eyes.

Speaking of the kinds of Miracles that have become available to us recently, here’s a fabulous interview on tapping from introduction to the World Tapping Summit: .

Along with an up-to-date summary of the scienterrific perspective on tapping, Dawson talks about it’s history, how he uses it, and his aim of Changing the World.


February 15, 2011

Davidite (Lanthanum Yttrium Uranium Titanium Iron Oxide)While we were busy watching Hoseme get his comeuppance on the tube, the Corporate Media conveniently got to ignore what’s happening in the USofA.  From Wisconsin, for instance, a reader writes,

“All that I can say is ‘pray.’  I never thought that our country could come to such an ‘evil’ level and then blame the people for it.  In Wisconsin Governor Walker has called in the Wisconsin National Guard to protect,,,,,,, what?  Himself maybe?  He is taking away Unions, and 20% of public employee income.  I understand that we all have to give a little for the good of all.  But to call in ‘THE GUARD’ because he suspects there will be an upheaval is such a punch in the stomach it has made me so that I can’t even breathe.  He has no idea what living at poverty level is, and that is what I have lived at while being employed by the State of Wisconsin for the last 15 years.  I have been humble and have truly appreciated being employed.  We have so much to be proud of here in this State.  Now, our new governor has addressed State employees as ‘suspect.’  I am in shock and at a loss for words.  What is happening here?”

Reality is clashing with the Hype, is what’s happening.

The public school system in the USofA has been called the World’s greatest propaganda machine, selling the US system of government as The Best and Worth Dying To Defend many times over, because of our “freedom.”  In truth, the Winner Take All system in the US guarantees freedom only when you align with the “majority” – ask Julian Assange.  The World’s second-greatest propaganda machine, television, assures that the “majority” is aligned with $money.  Corporate raids of various kinds have stripped benefits and pensions from most private employees over the last couple of decades, and now there’s an organized effort to do the same for public employees.

There is a huge global trend that you don’t want to be on the wrong side of – the Rest of the World is raising their standard of living.  Since the World hasn’t gotten much bigger or more capacious, the correlate is that people in the “First World” are lowering theirs.  The Elite know this, and they’ve long since employed two strategies to milk the trend: sell things to the Rest of the World, and make sure that in the “First World” it’s other people’s living standards that fall, not theirs.  This is not new; it’s been going on for 20-30 years already, and it’s barely begun.  In the 80s Lester Brown estimated that the “First World” ate up some 22 times as many resources per capita as the people in the Rest of the World.  What do we think the ratio is today?  21?  What will it be when the trend finishes working it’s way through?  5?  1?  Less than 1?  22:1, when you look at it from the other side, is 0.05.

Another huge trend that’s been going on for even longer, at least several centuries: machines now make and do things, not people.  On a stage coach, the ratio of service employees to those served, not counting the back office, was 2:6.  Some trains now don’t even have 1 driver, the computers do it, and they carry hundreds of people.  And the back office is no longer in San Francisco, it’s in Bangalore, or untouched by human hands at all, on the internet.  The great propaganda machine has sold that to us as “productivity,” the glorious path to greater wealth and leisure!  For most people it’s the path to redundancy.  Two questions no one in the US has bothered to deal with, even centuries later – how will the excess people entertain themselves, and how will they eat?  The initiators of this great “Industrial Revolution,” the Brits, sent their excess populations to be used as arrow fodder to protect the Colonies.  In North America, we’ve run out of West for young men to escape to.

So, viewed from the Big Picture, everyday humans in the “First World” are simply a surplus “resource.”  That’s just the Reality.  How do we deal with it?  Yes, first we have to Grieve our loss.  Our Grief doesn’t care that our counterparts in China are now making five times as much as they were a few years ago, or how much we have to discount for inflation.  Whether or not we’re grieving for the loss of material welfare, we’re certainly grieving for the loss of our Idealism and our Optimism.  It’s so blatantly obvious that we can no longer trust that Great American Dream programming we got as children.  So the Media splashes us with images of displaced youth in Foreign Lands striving for freedom and democracy, just like us!  It’s pure bullshit.  They’re striving for food and jobs, just like us.

That’s what economic geography tells us about what’s happening.  What about astrology?  Well, there’s the New Global Paradigm (Chiron-Neptune) and how it has the potential to transform Despair into Miracles.  If the ghost of Ed McMahon is there in Cairo, hiring folks to go door to door passing out checks, then they’re on the leading edge of that trend.  If the military just replaces Hoseme with Squirtme, then maybe not.  Nothing has changed about the Monopoly game that the entire World is still playing.  The efforts to match up vacant houses with homeless people, and unused food with hungry people, exist, but the Corporate Media isn’t about to cover them, because it wants you to believe that you have no power, that their $money game is the only one that exists.

There’s the New Soul Chord Download that can revivify all of us if we’re willing to open to it.  What does that involve?  Well, we been writing about the Grand Cross for a coupla months now.  Means we gotta give up alotta old Identities.  Clearly the gradeschool propaganda about the American Dream is overdue for the dustbin.  It’s deep in our hearts, but it’s waaay outa date.  Strive for Self-Respect because you deserve it and you need it, not because of somebody else’s lies about what’s Right and Good.  Since Ronald Reagan read Ayn Rand, the “winners” have been using the mantra, I better get mine before somebody else takes it.  Since Jesus and long before that, some “winners” have been using the mantra, We’re all in this together.  Ram Dass’s guru advised him to Feed people.

So, what follows Grief?  Well, first of all, remember that Grief sets its own timetable.  It can’t be hurried, as much as we’d like to.  Tapping will help immensely, not because it’ll speed up the Grief, but because it’ll help us get back into the Present Moment and leave behind all those deep trances from our Past Deaths, about our Worthlessness and Powerlessness and Helplessness.  After Grief comes Response.  What’s first priority?  Are we tired?  Then sleep is most important.  Hungry?  Then food.  Do we have a bed that’s dry and warm, hot running water, and food for tomorrow?  Then Bigtime Gratitude will be very useful – most people on the planet don’t.  Political action?  You might have been able to muster some support ten years ago, when private industry was eliminating pensions and benefits, but now most people are too busy scrambling to protect their legacies.

We may not have much time to get our act together in the Garden; according to Calleman, the Whole Shebang hits crescendo a few days before Halloween of this year.  Given that the three major unconscious planets, Pluto and Uranus and Neptune, are all highly involved in the Grand Cross, pray is indeed an excellent place to start, as is meditate.  Some people say that prayer is talking, while meditation is listening.  Where there are no obvious answers, listening very carefully to the smallest, stillest voice we can hear, is paramount.

Trust follows that.  If we’re blessed to receive an answer to any prayer, we have to follow it.  An effective plan will sound way off base to our “rational” mind, because our mind will be stuck in the old paradigm.  That’s what minds do.  We need to practice appreciating the  mind’s contribution, but not necessarily acting on it.  We have to trust the instructions we get from the Other Side of the Shift.

Now, to respond directly to our friend in Wisconsin, the first question is whether there’s any competition between your very strong dynamism and very strong magnetism.  Like me, you’ve got an Outabounds Mars on one corner of the Grand Cross.  So you’re likely to have a strong sense of Doingness.  Combine that with a situation where power seems remote, and that makes frustration.  But your survival instincts are absolutely flawless – any frustrations you might be feeling about that are somebody else’s feelings, not your own.  As I’ve been working with my newfound Identity-need for Doingness, I’ve seen that my father always told me I’d never amount to anything unless I learned to get up early like him.  My natural schedule is to work late and sleep late, so my self-concept is that I’m lazy, and I hope nobody catches me at it, because it triggers shame that’s very debilitating.

So that’s your first job – healing ANY rift between your inner male, who’s always willing and able to do what’s necessary, and your inner female, who knows exactly what’s right.  As a team, they are unbeatable.  Unbeatable.  Seriously, unbeatable.  But if anybody in your past ever shamed you for either (or both!), and if the two of them judge one another at all, you’re frozen.  Any conflict there?  You gotta tap that out, and reprogram yourself to be loving and gentle with each of them all the time, so you can teach them to be loving and gentle with each other all the time.  Believe me, everything else will take care of itself just fine!

Anhydrite (Calcium Sulfate)I don’t like to just forward material directly, but this came in a few moments ago, and I was struck by the coincidence of topic, relative to astrology’s, Zbigniew’s and Drunvalo’s perspectives.  Daniel’s website – – doesn’t seem to work so good with Firefox, and he does give us permission to share “for purposes of … personal growth,” so here it is.  If you wanna sign up for his emails, Daniel can be reached at reconnections{AT}  He’ll be talking about Star Children in a teleconference on Tuesday, February 1 – see for details.

(Note: it’s good internet form to disguise the at-sign when including edresses in emails or on websites, because spammers with access to an ISP scan all passing traffic for at-signs so they can harvest eddresses to spam; to use the eddress, replace the {AT} with an at-sign, or shift-2.)

From The Reconnections………

My Dear Friends,

We have spoken to you, in our Trans-Portals series, about this process known as “Phase Shifting.” This is the gradual integration of divine and human consciousness—wherein human beings change places (and viewpoints) with Gods, Goddesses, Archetypes, Extraterrestrials, Elementals, and many divergent types of consciousness…….. expanding, contracting…….back and forth across the Veil………..traversing Celestial Realms, The Underworld……..the Flexibility of Hermes, the Alchemy of Thoth!

In a similar way, various Divinities and Archetypes are now taking on human form as well. After all, what better way is there to unite the Multiversal Oneself that allowing its various “parts” to walk awhile in each other’s shoes? You may not recognize them, as they step forth through special Energy Gates, opening now around the world, but they are there! And it is because of the proliferation of this special process, during this important time, that we must speak to you now about that area of your planet which is known as The Middle East.

For many years, this region of Earth has been a hot bed of tension and strife. Many brilliant people have expended untold amounts of energy—trying to achieve a lasting peace in this troubled portion of your world. Let us share with you some ideas that may shed new light upon why things are so turbulent in this place during this period in history.It is no mere co-incidence that this part of the planet is known as The Holy Land.

As a centering point, and origin for many of your planet’s mainline religions, The Middle East has become a primary location for the opening of the first of these Multiversal Energy Gates, through which the Ancient and the Shining Ones now regularly come and go! Through these Portals their essences pass, bringing with them a certain Radiance (Intense Energy) bleeding through from the Other Side of the Veil.The power of this Radiance is profound, creating an acceleration in the energy fields of all who are exposed to it. The effect that it has upon the human nervous system is like the Siren’s Song in the mythologies of old. It can drive people crazy, if they are not prepared to rise with it to new levels of love and allowingness.

Please note the convergence of timing between the beginning of strife in the Middle East, and the first appearance of Extraterrestrials, crash-landing upon your planet. Though many universes are using this data to explore story plots of conspiracy and intrigue, we tell you now that there are other, very expanded universes wherein this convergence of activity means so much more than mere wargames, played out in cloak and dagger fashion.

The turbulence in The Middle East, though heartbreaking and sad, serves well as a cover for this Divine Exchange of Consciousness that is occurring through these open Gates. Indeed, all areas of the world today, which are sites of continuous uprising—especially those conflicts which appear as “senseless violence”— have been or are now being infused with incoming Radiance, as designated Energy Gates start to open. The upheavals being experienced in these regions have political overtones, but the real issues are not political. They are Bio-Energetic.

For those whose hearts are open, the Radiance has very little effect, beyond the feeling of a gradual, daily increase in personal joy! When you are in Oneness, there is no objection or hindrance to being exposed to Radiance. However, if you are of a territorial or separatist mindset, or have hunger for power, these vibrations can make you crazy. What is happening in the Middle East now will soon be happening everywhere, as Energy Gates begin opening wide all over the globe. However, by that time, the vibrational flux will be so intense that control-based individuals will have a difficult time even functioning, let alone making war.

We are giving you this information—about the Energy Gates, and the non-political sourcing of these conditions, so that you can realize how important at this time is your need for OPEN HEARTS, in order to be protected and to survive in the days ahead. If that “message” becomes grounded and anchored in you…….you will be able to spread that TONE to many, many people. Not all people will understand………but they won’t need to. All they will need is exposure to the TONE of a person who is Reconnecting……….and they, too, will begin that process, on some level. It’s the 100th Monkey dynamic again, do you see?

It is very possible that many of you are focusing upon this question: “How can I help this area of the world? How can I make the suffering that is all around us diminish?” The answer to that question is STOP SUFFERING YOURSELF………and listen to what is being shared here. Begin sourcing your strength and motivation from within, and show everyone around you what that looks like. Do not preach, and do not seek them out to evangelize. Just keep washing your own “potatoes” (as the story says)…..and others will seek YOU out, and learn from you how to survive this awesome translation into 4D Consciousness.

As the vibrations on the planet continue to rise, Organizational Structures are starting to derange themselves and crumble from within. Few there are of you who fully realize how at odds your Governments are—within themselves—as they seek to gain a fresh foothold on the side of a mountain that is about to fall over.The “mountain” we are speaking of is NOT physical reality, My Friends. You are not in danger of losing your society—-or of reverting to some sort of primitive, boundary-less anarchy, wherein you will have to plot and struggle to stay alive. All of that is being sidetracked into other universes, other realities, that are less focused upon sustaining a spiritual tone.

Though each of you DOES have an “animal” component present within your DNA, you have collectively moved beyond the need to explore that in detail at this time. Any small remnants of those issues or themes will simply be a reminder that this is material you have already covered. If it goes by you, simply notice them and move on. There are far more important objects of focus ahead!

That “mountain” crumbling, of which we speak, is a mindset………….a way of seeing……….that is built upon a PROJECTION OUT of your power, your creativity, and your initiative. More and more, humankind is beginning to recognize your own causal relationship to everything that is happening around you. As this occurs, there is less and less need to project your Power Energies out…….. in the form of dictators, terrorists, saints, saviors, or generals! The AUTHORITY of creation is beginning to be implanted in the minds and hearts of everyman.

You are beginning to TAKE CHARGE of your own creations…….and that is a powerful (and turbulent) shift, indeed!Imagine driving in a car, down a thoroughfare, at 55 mph. Suddenly, the person who is in the passenger’s seat decides he is ready to take the wheel. The driver consents (after a little persuasion!)…….and the “transfer” begins to take place. Don’t you think that your vehicle is going to bob and weave a bit, going down the road? Don’t you think that some fear and trembling will accompany such a drastic move?

And so, during this time of outer (and inner) upheaval, it is important for us to remind you that all things are in the keeping of the GUARDIAN SPIRIT that has been in place since the beginning of your Harmonic Convergence, back in 1987. The Guardian Spirit is a fusion of Form and Chaos, wherein both stipulate that neither of them will have full dominance over your world at any given time. Though one may rule over the other for a short while, the Guardian Spirit insures that both will remain in place to keep the Oneness Vibration intact.

This tells you that there will never be a time when structure is completely ousted, in favor of darkness and travail. However, it also says that there will never be a time when so-called “peace and safety” is guaranteed by some system of laws and restraints. Both “extremes” will be held in check………….by mutual agreement, as the Oneself continues to manifest its shifts and changes upon the planet.

In these coming days……….you will see many tyrants and dictators………who will attempt to perpetuate old “systems” of outward control, and outward focus.   Sit back and enjoy the show, My Dear Friends. There is no need to struggle against it. They will show themselves to be court jesters, mindlessly striving to perpetuate a way of life that is rapidly passing away.   Now is your time to observe. Now is your time to be instructed!

Those who seek to unravel the fabric of society out of its season, who think of themselves as SYSTEMS BUSTERS will also experience frustration and blockage to the achievement of their goals, unless their “terrorist acts” serve some purpose in the unfoldment of the Greater Whole.   Relax, renew yourselves, and allow yourselves to release any sense of judgment concerning what is going on.

If you experience deaths, pain, or losses…….feel your emotions, express your pain, and then get up and go on. Remember what we said about death and about power. Remember also that everything and everyone you see around you is a reflection of some part of yourself! The more you allow yourself to look with PERSONAL EYES, at a humanity that is rapidly changing, the less will be your need to look with GENERAL EYES, waging warfare and heaping judgment upon those around you.

Judgment is, in fact, the only thing that can harm you during this upcoming period. For, when you allow it to take hold on you…… drop your own energy field, which must be allowed to remain high during these changes. More information will be brought through about this as it applies! We hold you all in wonder and amazement! We are enjoying this ride as much as you are. Now is your time to take to the skies—to leave the land of the mortals! Now is your time to go forward, BEYOND HUMAN BOUNDARIES.

Stand still, and be amazed!

Who Are We

January 16, 2011

This year in the USofA, Monday January 17 is a holiday, Martin Luther King Day, often shortened, fondly, to MLK Day.  This year it’s very busy, as our continuing Grand Cross, the same Grand Cross as the Solstice Grand Cross, the Grand Cross which we can consider the harbinger of 2011, gets lit up bigtime.  So it’s a good day to understand more about 2011.

The Moon lights up the Jupiter-Uranus corner early, in the 5am to 10am PST timeslot.  That’s the New Soul Download corner.  See if you feel rambunctious during these hours.  It should be a good time for creativity to overcome restraint.

Then later, in the 8pm to 11pm PST timeframe, it gets really busy.  Mercury represents observation, but it’s a trickster.  How many different interpretations can you craft from what you observe?  The more the better.  See if you can do a multiple Both/And with your interpretations of what you observe on Monday.  Reality is multidimensional, many times over.  The mindbone loves to simplify, and tries very hard to make things match preconceptions.  It would be useful to spend a little time between noon and 4pm PST asking yourself, What do I expect to see in 2011?  Make a separate list of what you couldn’t stand to see, and a third list of what you’d love to see.  Put the lists away and don’t look at them till Tuesday.

Then, on Tuesday, see how many of your observations on Monday reinforced what you expected to see.  Separately, see how many of your interpretations matched what you expected.  Mercury crosses Pluto in the later Monday timeframe, at the same time that the Moon opposes Mercury-Pluto and squares Juno.  This later timeframe should be an excellent lesson in differentiating between what’s really going on (in this case, Pluto), what we want to see happening (Mercury), what we’re excited about or scared of (Moon), and what our Ego is deeply invested in happening (Juno).  We want to cut through our intellectual and emotional and egoic investments so we can see how “objective” Reality is changing (Pluto).  How to do this?

Well, you can compare your thoughts and feelings in the earlier Monday timeslot, with your thoughts and feelings in the later Monday timeframe.  Your New Soul Download is a babe recent of the Far Reaches, and is likely to be less entangled with the Karma you’ve been working with recently.  Our Karma is like a funhouse mirror, it distorts our view of present-moment Reality.  In the earlier Monday timeslot, we’re more likely to be seeing Reality more clearly.  Hint – your curiosity should be evoked.  In the later Monday timeframe, we’re more likely to be seeing more of our Resistance to present-moment Reality.  The day as a whole gives us a unique opportunity to look in on history as it unfolds.

Monday will be a fabulous time to pray, or visualize, or intend, or ask for, or affirm Clarity and Guidance.  Coasting with the Wind of History behind your back is a zillion times easier than trying to tack against it.  The underlying Victim program here is letting go of old ego attachments that no longer serve us.    The overlying Master program is trancing into our New Soul Download.  The difference could be subtle.  Watch for it.

Friday, Monday, and Thursday

Well, folks are reporting that they sailed through Monday (when the likelihood of Ego Death could have been high, as our new Soul Download could have been shoving old Egos out the door), but that Friday (when the cultural New Paradigm was activated) was miserable.  I couldn’t agree more; Friday was praying-for-mercy miserable for me, and Monday went pretty well.  How ’bout you?  If you comment, I’ll keep your responses anonymous unless you say it’s okay to post them.

If this is generally true, then we need to be on the lookout this coming Thursday for more potential regression.

This is not the first occurrence of Friday’s Energy – we’ve been immersed in it for several years now, and I haven’t experienced previous occurrences nearly as powerfully.  We should be able to discover Thursday evening whether last Friday was just an unrelated Disturbance in the Force, or an indication that the New Paradigm sees the Seventh Day as time to get serious.

In the interim, one of my Worldviews is this.  We, as Souls, came here to help heal the Planet, which is seriously afflicted with contagious negativity.  To come here and have a practical effect, we have to manifest into hardcopy reality, and when we manifest, of course we, as Souls, have difficulty seeing out through the tiny eyeholes of our humansuit.  The biological and astral (emotional) currents are so strong that most of the time, most of us forget our SoulSelf and our Mission.  Emotions are Energy Fields, and most of them aren’t personal.  What the Arizona Assassin called “Mind Control” is eddies in these Fields, which amp up the intensity of the Emotional Weather.  We felt the same eddy that he did.

As many do, you can personalize these eddies as the Evil Intent of some Arch Enemy of yours, and there are certain advantages to doing that, if your Arch Enemy is disincarnate or semi-incarnate, like Harry Potter’s Moldywart – you at least project this Evil Enemy outside yourself, and that’s probably marginally better than introjecting it, where the Evil Enemy is part of your own personality.  Eventually you’ll have to give up on this Duality, just like all the other Dualities, because all Dualities are mindstuff, and the Universe is a lot bigger than your mindbone.  I doubt that most of us came to this Planet to enjoy mindgames.  Mindgames, by blocking compassion, are part of the contagious negativity.

I know, this Worldview is far out, but recall, it’s Both/And, and the more perspectives we can bring to an issue, the more likely we are to be able to avoid the dilemma that Einstein decried – you cannot solve a problem using the same thinking that formulated the problem.  And this is a useful perspective, and you’ve all actually had experiences of it, when for instance you felt awful for no reason, only to discover the next day that your neighbor or relative or friend was experiencing a serious trauma.  Often Emotional Waves don’t travel far, but like any electromagnetic phenomena, when the Waves reinforce one another, they can build up to incredible degrees, and even become global.  If we were having a sorta-bad day when the neighbor was being traumatized, we could easily introject the Energy into some earlier trauma of our own, amplify the Energy, and pass it on to the next neighbor a little bigger than it was when we received it.  If you know chaos theory, it’s just the Butterfly in China phenomenon.

So, what if Friday’s Disturbance in the Force was indeed related to the New Paradigm?  The media’s working their tail off to make us believe that there was nothing political about Saturday’s assassinations, because they’re afraid it might hinder their agenda of herding us back into WalMart.  That’s a clue.  What if the New Paradigm is a shift toward surrendering the Planet completely to Business interests?  That means the smart rich mercenary sociopaths get whatever they want, and the other 99% of the People just get poverty and abuse and depravity.  Or, what if the New Paradigm is about bringing that age-old phenomenon of corruption into our full Awareness, so we can choose otherwise?

Of course we don’t want to exclude other perspectives.  For instance, several well-respected folks have written about how the Planet will be splitting in two energetically.  And the above is obviously written from the perspective of a declining Western Civilization.  China, for instance, is highly motivated to keep the Chinese people employed and believing in their own future.  Even if their motivation is Power, at least their methodology shows some compassion.  In the US, the Powers That Be think they have the Sheople so hypnotized that they no longer even have to hide their motives – and with the firepower they have at their disposal, they may be right, for a while.  Brazil appears to be making progress toward improving the lives of Brazilians without destroying Brazil in the process.

Speaking as an economic geographer, it should be fairly clear that one timely meaning for a New Paradigm is a decline in economic colonialism, which means an equalization of the bottom-line survivability of life in the Colonies, versus life in the Colonizers, namely Europe and the US.  Lester Brown thirty years ago wrote about the disparity between resource use in the “First World” and resource use in the “Third World” – in the 1980s people in the US and Europe consumed 22 times as much as people in the Rest of the World.  And the Planet doesn’t have enough total resources to allow simply multiplying the standard of living in the Rest of the World by 22.  Advances in shipping and communication since the 1980s have allowed the Rest of the World to begin inching up – and as they do, the “First” World is seeing its living standards reduced.

I don’t see anything controversial about that, other than that most of the “First” World will be working hard to either avoid or deny it.  Well, the smart rich mercenary sociopaths have done an excellent job of avoiding it.  To a sociopath, Us versus Them provides no moral dilemma whatsoever – clearly, it’s JustUs that counts, and we need protection against Them.  And the hypnotized Sheople are working hard to deny it.  Sure, technological advances will continue to change the game and improve things for everyone, but it’s a simple fact that living standards in the US and Europe are declining, just as living standards in the Rest of the World are improving.  The Chinese are actually working to reduce their negative impact on the Planet, while the US has been moving in the other direction.  Obama’s making some changes, but none that will stand beyond the next president nominated by Business and elected with Corporate Money.

So how do we deal with the truth of We Lost?  Well, first we have to accept it.  Fighting anything just makes it stronger, because you’re reinforcing the Wave.  Categorizing it as External Evil is a mindgame that produces no useful result.  We will need to grieve the loss of our Material Dreams – all losses must be grieved, even the loss of things we didn’t really want.

Second, we have to work to protect our own space.  Maslow was right – when we’re hungry, it narrows our eyeslits even more, and we all become sociopaths.  Hungry and powerless is a good way to get dead, when you’re dealing with heavily armed Us against Them sociopaths.  So we want to avoid hunger – and some fasting practice wouldn’t hurt.  Fasting, in reasonable quantities, actually makes us healthier.  And if we get good at it, we might even learn to see outside our humansuit while hungry!  Obviously, local community of some sort will be useful – remember the Buddhist story about being in front of a sumptuous banquet with our elbows locked.  Feeding ourself was impossible, but feeding each other worked fine.

Third, hedge your bets.  What if the New Paradigm is about bringing the age-old phenomenon of corruption into our full Awareness, so we can choose otherwise? Intention follows Attention.  The more time we can spare to visualize the possibility of people treating one another with Respect and Abundance, the more we reinforce this Wave.  Abundance means having enough to share freely.  We could be Monkey #75 on the way to a hundred.  The more we can stand in the Energy of Abundance, the more likely we are to board the right train when the Planet splits in two, if that’s what She chooses.

Now, the way we heal the Planet, is to depersonalize the Waves of negativity when they pass through us, and “sit still” for it.  Reaction reinforces the Energy.  Sure, it feels like some of the most horrible experiences we ever had.  We’d “rather die” than go through that again (which is the definition of Ego Death!).  But that’s a hologram, a paper tiger.  Are we, in this moment, safe?  Then the experience of terror and loathing is not real.  Recognize it for what it is – a horrible feeling.  What would you do if a friend was experiencing a horrible feeling?  You’d be compassionate and caring.  You’d speak softly, treat them kindly, and avoid denying or diminishing what they’re feeling.  Step outside of your body, and treat yourself the same way.

We heal ourselves by checking to see whether, when we re-experience a trauma, we’re inside of our body, or outside of our body.  We can experience real-life trauma either way.  We can stay in our body, and feel the pain physically.  Or we can dissociate, and watch our body experiencing trauma from above it, or from across the room.  Ask yourself which was the case.  Then, while you’re treating yourself with compassion and caring and kindness and speaking softly to yourself, see if you can slowly and gradually do the opposite.  If you were inside of your body during the real trauma, ease out of it, so you can see your former self from a different perspective.  If you were outside of your body during the real trauma, see if you can ease yourself into your body.  Don’t push it – if you can 2% in or out, you’re doing good.  Don’t expect to go from zero to 100% in one or a few sessions.  Be very gentle with yourself.

It’s the same way with the Planet.  When you consider the Planet’s trauma, are you witnessing it from inside your body, or outside?  Is the Tucson Assassin shooting you?  Or are you watching from a nearby lightpole?  Or are you shooting?  Try all three perspectives.  How does each feel?  Be gentle and loving with yourself.

Monday, January 10

January 6, 2011

Herkimer Diamonds (Quartz)Chiron-Neptune’s more immediate, lit up as it is on Friday, but more important are the Ego Deaths that are challenging many of us (particularly those of us with planets in the last five degrees of Pisces, Gemini, Virgo, or Sadge or in the first six degrees of  Aries, Cancer, Libra, or Cap – that is, under the corners of the Grand Cross).  Mondays are big on this score for a while.  Monday January 17 is most prominent – we’ll write about that inna few days.

We’ll be getting good information about our new Soulchord Download on Monday January 10, as the Moon crosses Jupiter-Uranus around 1pm to 3pm PST.  We could feel that as excitement about our new self, or we could feel it as anxiety or grief or even shame, as the New squeezes out the Old.  While Chiron-Neptune is quite impersonal (unless it falls on one of your planets), Jupiter-Uranus is totally personal, so personal that you probably won’t even want to talk about it, except with your least judgmental friends, or your Confessor.

About five hours later, 6pm7pm PST, we get hit with the Old, bigtime, as the Moon Opposes Juno (that which we’re merged with) and then Squares Pluto (that which the Universe is shoving down our throat).  Opposition symbolizes Awareness, and the Square is our Fourth-Harmonic Competence-through-Challenge friend, so we could summarize that as the Universe ripping out of us that which is no longer relevant to the Seventh-Day End Times we’re entering.  Enjoy!

If you’re reading this on Monday, think back to Friday.  That’s when Miracles were afoot.  A Miracle is just an ordinary event in one paradigm, which is against one sort of law or another in a more traditional paradigm.  For a mundane example, if you tried to build a Prius in 1990, you’d have flopped miserably, because 1990’s battery technology (Lead-Acid), and motor-generator technology (Iron) both weighed so much you’d only be able to drive downhill.  If you passed a modern Prius going uphill, you’d have called it a Miracle.  But it’s “just” a change of paradigm, as today’s battery (Lithium) and motor-generator (Neodymium) technologies can do the same work using a fraction as much weight.

Same with our Ego-Death miseries – just our plain old Lead-Acid-Iron Selves scared shitless that they’re gonna be left out in the cold to starve again, while stunningly gorgeous Mr. or Ms. Lithium-Neodymium saunters off with our Mother or Father or TrueLove or SugarDaddy again, like they did to us in that age in that land, as mirrored by the horribly unpleasant experiences we had in our youth, which we’d do anything to avoid having to relive.  The glass slipper probably aint gonna fit, that’d be too predictable.  But Miracles do await us.

First we’re probably gonna hafta suffer a bit, till we remember to breath, tap, and remind ourself that it’s a hologram.  Present-Moment “Reality” is gonna be over there, behind the projection, waving it’s arms.  Yoo-Hoo, Over Here! They’re very compelling dramas, they hook us and snap us into a trance often so deep we don’t know we’re gone.  As Kesey put it, Sometimes you can trip out so far that you never get back to know that you’ve left.  That’s not true of a regression into a Karmic trance – we always come back, usually to have to try to clean up the mess we made while we were tranced out.  It is true of the Miracles that await us on the other side of the Big Drama.
