STATE OF THE PLANET UPDATE
for November 12th, 2021
By Isaac George
There is so much angst in the air these days that we may all be feeling more sensitive, exhausted or even more despondent than usual. So much so, that I feel a lot of folks are at the end of their tether, overwhelmed by the vast onslaught of confusing emotions and free-floating anxiety in the telluric atmosphere. Steady folks! Simply ignoring what is unfolding isn’t optional. However, grounding and staying centred in our core Being is a choice we do have, hour by hour, and day by day.
This past Wednesday there was an unusual astrological alignment. During the same time our planet has been undergoing a mid-level geomagnetic storm from more solar flares erupted last weekend. On Wednesday Saturn and the Moon met up at 7 degrees of Aquarius, and Mars and Mercury joined up at 7 degrees of Scorpio. The Mars-Mercury gang were also opposed by Uranus retrograde at 12 Taurus. This configuration is as rare astronomically as it is astrologically. The message in it is this: “...when push comes to shove”, or “enough is enough”, or “I am tired of this s**t”, or even “I’m as mad as hell, and I’m not going to take it anymore.”
The manifestations of this seemed to erupt in synchronous fashion globally, but was more focused in the USA, UK and Europe. In the days leading up to this strange square in the sky between Mars in Scorpio (“I’m going to get to the bottom of things, and you can’t make me do what I don’t want to do!”) and Saturn in Aquarius ("You must submit to the mandates or lose your job.”) various unions representing the police, firemen, teachers and health care professionals in the United States started court actions against forced inoculations. Of course, to suddenly try to force anything on these folks, after they’ve been on the front lines for 16 months without the need for such an experimental medical intervention does not make much sense. Nor does it make any sense to risk losing these dedicated people by coercing them into having to choose between their ethics (and perhaps medical or scientific knowledge) and their livelihoods. The video below is about an RN in British Columbia, Canada who is going through this exact scenario.
Here in the U.K., on the very morning of said weird astrological event, the government announced that all NHS and care home employees would have to be vaccinated or be let go. By yesterday morning 60,000 care home staff had been let go, and the care homes informed the National Health Service that they would be unable to accept any patient transfers from NHS facilities. That was standard practice during the early months of lockdown in 2020. Now it is the turn of the NHS frontline staff to choose where they stand. I have spoken privately with some nurses from our local NHS Trust hospital, and they feel it is simply wrong-footed to make the jabs mandatory.
Of course, there are other aspects to these developments, and I although I would like to address them here like bullet points in a lecture, I won’t do that. I’m not here to lecture anyone or tell them what I think they should do, or not do. I have popped a few links to some videos and articles for your consideration at the end of this article, and you can view them or not. Up to you.
After a relatively quiet weekend and beginning to next week, we have a few more rings of fire to leap through. Next Wednesday Mars in Scorpio comes into an exact opposition with Uranus in Taurus retrograde. This occurs at 12 degrees of each sign. The energy of any Mars-Uranus aspect is volatile, unpredictable and intense. I know because I live every day with Uranus square Mars in my natal blueprint. Saturn is also in an applying square to Uranus, which will be exact on December 24th, 2021, the last square between these behemoths in those signs for quite some time to come.
On Friday, November 19th, there will be a partial Lunar Eclipse in Scorpio-Taurus. I’ve supplied a copy of the chart below.
This lunar eclipse event may further galvanize and embolden those questioning the official narratives and mandates. The confrontation between Mars and Uranus squaring Saturn will alert those in charge that their tactics are having less of an effect than desired. This may result in further and perhaps more draconian restrictions in December, especially after the Total Solar Eclipse in Sagittarius (self-righteousness). I am still taking the long view and holding zero expectations as we move from now to the first exact Pluto Return station to the USA Natal Chart Pluto in February 2022. Now that will be a subject of deeper delving in January 2022!
The upshot of all of this from my perspective is that this is a time for steadfast resoluteness and preparedness. Lots of folks I know are “prepping”, something I’ve been meaning to do for a few months now since supply chains have been disrupted and fuel has gotten scarcer. However, the spiritual and soul-base perspectives are of primary importance in these challenging and confusing times.
Ever since Halloween and the November 4th New Moon I’ve detected an uptick in psychic interference and fatigue. Some of that is due to the fluctuations in the planet’s magnetic fields, but hey, the veils are still very thin now. People energy, including thoughts and emotions, seem to be bleeding through boundaries much easier than before. This is creating some personal friction that is straining working or friend relationships. Very touchy when it is someone close to you that you feel you need some space from. By extension I am also picking up on a lot of astral interference and other static. Clearing oneself daily is a useful activity, and only takes a few ticks to accomplish (see link below). Some symptoms to be alert for are undefined irritability, low grade depression, self-talk, blaming, complaining, dissociative or addictive behaviours, a longing to be somewhere else, and general doubt or fear.
Although lower emotions like fear, guilt, shame and anger are generally to be eschewed, anger can be a creative energy when approached in the correct attitude. Anger is one of the most misunderstood and avoided emotions on the planet, or conversely, one that is over-indulged in far too often.
The one message anger can have for us is that our Soul Core is alerting us to some person, situation or thing that violates our sense of Self, or our core values. As such, anger is then your friend, and an ally in helping you in choosing and activating healthy boundaries. In a climate such as we have now, people’s right to say “NO!” is even being taken away. To someone experiencing physical, mental or sexual abuse, we would be appalled if someone were denied the inherent right to say “NO!, that is does not feel good and I will resist!” This is when anger can give us the courage to stand up for ourselves and by saying “no” we are saying “yes” to what feels right and good for us.
It will be increasingly essential to observe what is going down without it dragging you down with it. It is also becoming apparent that we may have to act in a firm and steadfast way to preserve the life we have chosen to live, and not acquiesce quite so easily to what others tell us to do. This Saturn in Aquarius cycle will be with us until March 2023, so we’ve still going to see this type of attrition carrying on for a while yet. By that time Pluto will be done with the transit to the USA chart and will be about ready to head into Aquarius itself. That should be of larger concern than what we currently are experiencing. Even so, it is vital that we look to staying as much in the now as possible.
There are many things to be currently thankful for, and to celebrate. If you have your health, good food, shelter and loving family and friends, then appreciate that…deeply. Hold fast to the vision you have for your life and choose the path that brings the most peace to you, not the most material gain or comforts. The pressures we are seeing have been designed by us, and for us, to awaken and galvanize us to take full responsibility for our happiness right now, and for the future.
This is also the Planet’s shaking and waking us out of the nightmare that is capitalism and consumerism. I recall when I was channelling Archangel Ariel that she’d remind folks that moving into 5D would mean no more Walmarts or McDonalds. We cannot blend our current culture or beliefs with a higher order society. Our technology is owning us, and we are slowing realizing that that is now so. We also can feel how dehumanizing our institutions have become (humans are NOT a resource). The good news is that we are at choice, and in fact that is where our true power resides.
Don’t leave home without it, and refuse to submit your power of choice to another.
Peace, love and blessings on your journey,

“Sophia’s Wisdom and Embodiment” hosted by Renee S. LeBeau.
My good friend and fellow sound creator Renee S. LeBeau is offering a new monthly membership only program entitled “Sophia’s Wisdom and Embodiment”. I really like the sound of what she’s presenting here, which seems to be about grounding into developing a communication with Sophia, the planetary intelligence, for guidance and support. The full details can be found here, and here.
Revealing the Mysteries Radio Hour for Sunday, Nov. 14th, 2021
Show Synopsis: No matter how many times we attempt to reframe the current experience on this plane of awareness into the context of non-dualism or subjectivity, the more that objective reality objects, and then rudely intrudes. This past week there was, and still is, and opportunity to make a seed change within us, and in turn seed a different type of future. The upcoming eclipses on the 19th of November and 4th of December are also part of the scenery. Our choices appear to be narrowing, and people’s backs are pushed up against the wall and something will have to give. The question is, what will it be that gives? One word is triggering a lot of fear and pain recently, and that word is “mandatory”.
In this show I will illustrate the challenges and highlight our potential responses to them. Also on tap is a dose of strong encouragement to establish good boundaries with others, especially groups, and always keep your energy clear in all circumstances. Psychic vampires don’t only come out at Halloween you know. Digital detox time as well!
All shows now air at 5:30pm GMT, 12:30pm EST, and 9:30pm PST.

State of the Planet Update:
Completion and a New Beginning – Full Moon in Aquarius, Sunday, August 22nd 2021
By Isaac George
August 19th, 2021
Well, I’m back…sort of. Technically still on sabbatical until Monday, August 23rd, but there are too many things popping that need some attention. The main one is the upcoming second Full Moon in Aquarius in less than a month. It bookends with the one that occurred on July 23rd at the 1st degree of Aquarius. This Sunday, the 22nd of August, the second one will be at the 29th degrees of Leo and Aquarius. The famous (or infamous) Anaretic degrees are compelling moments in any astrology timeline.Here’s an excerpt from The Dilemma of the 29th DEGREE: Thor’s Hammer or a Cornucopia? by Eileen Nauman, DH(UK):
“Astrologers know that from 0 through 28 degrees, we, as individuals, have ample opportunity to work on our stuff, work through it and change it. “Work” is defined here as our emotional and toxic wounds that we’ve accrued usually through childhood or in our twenties. And they have to be healed. In other words, we have choice. And since we are down here to grow, the 29th degree is around to ensure that we do what is needed for ourselves–even if we don’t want to do it for a host of reasons (fear, lack of confidence, lack of faith in ourselves, etc.). The 29th degree is there to ensure we WILL do it. Or, if we’ve been running away from a lot of emotional garbage that we’ve refused to own–well guess what? It’s all going to come back to haunt you in that 29th degree.
The 29th degree from a medical astrology standpoint is a loaded keg of emotional toxic ‘dynamite’ that has been ignored for some time, even decades, and it’s sitting there ready to explode. When we have suppressed or repressed emotions, this will translate over time into actual physical, mental or emotional dis-ease.”
That’s Eileen just getting warmed upon the subject of the Anaretic degrees…
“Of course, people have free will choice and if they elect not to try and heal their own wound, they ignore it. [For example] they can ignore Saturn transits from 0 to 28 degrees of that sign. However, when it hits the 29th degree, that person is going to have the Cosmic Hammer come down on him or her. The 29th degree is a last-ditch attempt to draw the person or experience to this individual so they can get to work on discharging the toxicity they’re carrying inside themselves. And so, calamity hits this person with a sledgehammer. It can be a loss of a job, the spouse wanting a divorce, having to move to another state or country, the death of a spouse or child or parent. And the list goes on…but the list of things that can happen are life changing for that individual. And that’s the power of the 29th degree coming in and confronting the individual who doesn’t want to do the work for whatever the reason. No reason, frankly, is worth avoiding our own wounding. If we drew that wound in this incarnation, it’s up to us to work through it. In working through it, we learn, grow and mature and yes, perhaps even evolve, because of our efforts.”
Now I know that you who are reading this may not have any particularly sensitive points in your own soul blueprint (birth chart) for this incarnation, but that doesn’t mean one is totally out of the woods. You and I share in the collective awareness of the soul of humanity and of the planet, so we are not immune to the knock-on effects that that can have in our personal spheres. That said, this Full Moon is akin to an initiation…for the whole human race.
The little-known dwarf planet Sedna is currently also at the 29th Degree of Taurus and is being squared by the Sun and Moon at 29 Leo and Aquarius this Saturday. Some say that Sedna represents the soul’s destiny and has a hand in illumination and new consciousness. Sedna’s orbital path takes over 11,000 years to complete one revolution around our Sun, and she is way out there beyond the orbit of Pluto, so that last time Sedna was parked at the last degree of Taurus was at the end of the last Ice Age. Sedna was a goddess of the sea and intuitive feelings that belongs to the Inuit Indians of the Arctic regions.
She entered Taurus in 1965, just as the USA civil rights movement, the Vietnam War, and the rise of the hippie era all commenced. A big shifting in human consciousness to be sure! It’s also worth mentioning that Uranus and Pluto had just entered the element of Earth just about the same time when they both conjoined in Virgo. Sedna enters Gemini in 2024, around the same time that Pluto enters Aquarius. Sedna in Taurus could be one of the factors in the rise of the digital age since 2003, but when she gets into Gemini, it might signal a new rising of human consciousness, but one not tied to artificial intelligence or binary sciences.
At the unconscious level Sedna can represent victimization, illness, alienation, trauma, and suffering. At the conscious level she can foster profound acceptance, including of how bad things currently are, transcendence, keeping one’s heart open no matter what, and having a sense of humour.
With the Sun and Moon underpinning the archetypes of Leo and Aquarius, and squaring Sedna, I feel that we are being offered an initiation. One that can work best if we consciously choose to fully individuate into our sovereign truthful selves, while realizing and cultivating our innate spiritual connection to the elements, especially water (feelings) and earth (the body). This will be the choice point offered: evolved humanity not dependent or enslaved to digital technology, and a groundswell of consciousness opening not only to the higher cosmic influences, but also the divine influence right under our feet…and our noses!
Finally, in summary, allow me to offer the last part of Eileen Nauman’s brilliant essay on the 29th Degree:
THE CORNUCOPIA SIDE TO THE 29TH DEGREE:
“There is a positive side to the 29th degree as I wrote earlier. Think of it as a cornucopia of goodies just waiting to be given to you. If you have done all your homework on yourself and done your best to discharge your toxic dump of emotions, then the 29th degree will leave you alone. Instead, something “nice” will happen to you instead. It might be a time of joy spent with your grandchildren, your friends, or relatives. Or you attend a workshop that inspires you. Perhaps you sign up for creative schooling, such as painting, learning to write or learn to dance. It can be a simple as a wonderful lunch with a friend or a warm phone call from someone you love. Or it could be big, like a raise, a new job, a book being sold, being rewarded monetarily or in many other ways. It will be a ‘lull’ in having to always do your inner work. It’s Cosmic Gift Time, instead. A pat on the head by the Cosmos that you’ve done the dirty work and succeeded. Then, the 29th degree becomes a time of well-earned happiness in your life. And, as always, the choice of how we want to deal with the 29th degree is ours!”
The biggest issue of the day boils down to the fact that what is transpiring on the planet these last 2 years is only made possible by our immersion into the dreamspell of the digital domain. There is a simile to hypnosis and collective groupthink underway, exacerbated by the Saturn in Aquarius transit that promotes the group over individuation. True spirituality is about individuation of divine consciousness in the human experience. The mystic Edgar Cayce was asked during one of his trance sessions to describe Christ Consciousness. His reply was “to know thyself to be thyself, yet one with All That Is.”
Our task, as I see it defined in reflection of Sunday’s Full Moon in Aquarius, is to define who you are not by what the crowd says you should be, but who you really are and how true to that you will be. We are all being tested and testing ourselves. Let us rise to the occasion and say choose non-compliance with anything that offends our soul and spirit, and say yes to that which is sourced in love, truth, wisdom, empathy, the spirit of cooperation, and harmony with All That Is.
So be it!!
On the next episode on my “Revealing the Mysteries” radio program I have Renee S. LeBeau, back again for Part Two of “Acoustic Alchemy. We will be talking with her about her newest album release, “Sophianic Symphony”, which is being debuted on the program and coincides with the Full Moon in Aquarius. Potent times indeed! Hope you can join us.

Synopsis: In this episode we welcome Renee S. LeBeau back to the show. She’s here to share with us about her new creative release, which happens on this very day, of a new and quite remarkable album, entitled “Sophianic Symphony”. The word “Sophianic” is derived from the name of the Gnostic Goddess of Wisdom, Sophia. According to the ancient mystics, Sophia IS the planet Earth…or the planet as a direct emanation of Her divine beingness. The mystic traditions also ascribe the creation of all Nature and humanity to this luminous Aeon of organic Light. The album is therefore also a direct emanation through Renee’s field of being and awareness from Sophia. The instruments she is playing are being played through her while also maintaining a human element. A vast spaciousness surrounding her playing is beautifully captured in the tones of various acoustic instruments and vocalizatons by Renee. The recording also captures the ambient space which contains frequencies above and beyond the range of normal hearing. Join us…and feel the homecoming via sound.

State of the Planet Update
July 23rd, 2021
Note: I apologize about last week's Update not going out as I was interrupted by an unwelcome computer failure. And sorry for not being able to let you know about last Sunday's radio show in advance. You can access it here.
“Revelations” – Blue Moon in Aquarius, Saturn Reactivated
"If you love large, you've got to hurt large. If you've got a lot of light, you've probably got an equal amount of darkness" - Sarah McLachlan, composer, singer
"We’re in a tight spot!!" - from the film “Oh Brother, Where Art Thou?”
The Full Moon tomorrow is a Blue Moon (second full moon in the same calendar month) and is also a bookend to the next Full Moon in Aquarius on August 22nd, 2021. This one begins at 01 degrees of Aquarius, and on the 22nd of August it lands on the 29th degree of Aquarius, the powerful “Anaretic” degree. Anaretic refers to a context in which our egoic free will is suspended, and a divine directive holds sway. This energy is demanding that we pay attention, do the necessary work, before we can move into the next phase of soul development. Our personal self would very much like to avoid, defer or postpone the effects of when a planet or luminary comes to the 29th or 00 degrees of any sign, but it simply cannot be resisted. One researcher into the Anaretic phenomenon calls it “the Hammer of the Gods”. Enough said.
“Well, what about free will?”, you might ask. Free will, or at least the power of choice, takes on different meanings depending on which level of being you are viewing it from. As a fractal of the Originator (Source, Goddess, etc.) we all have free will…up to a point. I like to think that my soul is constantly choosing whatever experiences it requires to know self and yet be one with All That Is, but my ego may interpret this as also having the ability to reject or even resist the Soul, and by extension, All That Is. Good luck with that. Yes, you could resist or rebel…at least for a while. Eventually you would realize that your personality was created by your Soul for a specific reason, and it does not run the show. This is what I feel is the revelation of personal surrender of the self to the Self. It is humbling, and it is necessary if we are to recognize and correct errors we have made along the way.
The revelations that will confront us from tomorrow’s Full Moon to the one on August 22nd will be focused on the delineation of reality versus illusion, truth versus falsehood, sovereignty versus servitude, and cooperation versus self-interest. The Saturn in Aquarian Era, soon to be fortified by the greater Pluto in Aquarian Era, will be testing us to choose wisely, and then act from that wisdom fearlessly and without hesitation. There will also be many revelations about what’s been hiding behind the curtains that will come fast and thick between the Full Moons and for months thereafter.
Now here is a 5 Step program you can use your free will on!
One of the best and simplest methods for mitigating stress and anxiety, shock or fear is conscious deep belly breathing. Breathwork is varied, and no single technique applies to all. Try out a few…see what works. Best of all, you can utilize it anywhere in almost any situation. If you need some tools in this regard, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I supply them for free.
That’s all for now, and I will have one more update to come at the end of next week, as I will be taking a long-awaited two-week break from everything starting on August 2nd, and extending to August 23rd. There are two more live episodes for my radio show “Revealing the Mysteries” before my holiday, this Sunday the July 25th, and the following Sunday on August 1st. Hope you can drop by and listen in. The following two shows on August 8th and the 15th may both be encore presentations. Not sure which one, or both. Let you know next week.
In the meantime, keep breathing, and keep your heart open.
