STATE OF THE PLANET UPDATE
“Total Eclipse of the Heart”
November 7th, 2022
I am on sabbatical I know, but after investigating a bit, I am strongly persuaded to provide some of my 2 Cents around tomorrow’s Total Lunar Eclipse/Full Moon in Scorpio. Now say that last bit, real fast!
Da Factoids -
I’m including a heavily annotated chart so you can follow the bouncing ball. Of course, if you have anything pertinent in Gemini, Sagittarius. Virgo or Scorpio and either by conjunction (within 3 degrees sensitivity), square (90 degrees) or opposition (180 degrees) you will be heavily influenced or affected. This eclipse will have quite an impact on the world consciousness, for good or ill, as it is just one of the precursors to the ingress of Pluto from Capricorn into Aquarius on March 23rd at approximately 1:14pm GMT.
Like Pluto’s Capricorn ingress on January 25th, 2008, this starts out as a bit of back-and-forth thing. Pluto may enter Aquarius on March 23rd, 2023, but it goes retrograde on June 11th, 2023, and travels backwards into Capricorn until January 24th, 2024! He then stays in Aquarius until September 1st, 2024, and re-enters Aquarius for good on November 19th, 2024. Funny that November 19th, 2022, is also the day that Mars Retrograde in Gemini squares to Neptune in Pisces retrograde this coming month. Hmm….
All in all, Pluto has been in Capricorn for almost 15-16 years. When he enters Aquarius, it is a hitch that lasts till January 19th, 2044. That’s a long time, and I may not be around then to see it happen. You probably will though.
Da Eclipse –
This event is loaded. That’s said because the U.S.A. Congressional midterm elections happen at the same time. See the chart details:
The presence of Uranus retrograding in Taurus right on this Moon in Taurus is very significant and can foment disorder and misperception in spades. This will also probably ramp up the anxiety around inflation, values in general, and food production and distribution. Try not to get caught up in the hysteria.
Will this also announce the further decline of Pax Americana? Will the U.S. no longer lead the world but follow it (China?). Is there a new Civil War brewing on the American horizon? These points are all valid but doesn’t mean they are set it stone. With Mars Retrograde in Gemini during the whole phase we get to sit with our “got to do something!” energy and think about it. Not as appetizing for a conditioned populace for getting stuff done, but it’s got to be.
With Mars retrograde in Gemini, the frustrations brewing in the mass consciousness may get processed through personal communications. It will be essential that we work with the pressure so we can weigh in on every issue of the day. Reflect more than you react. Protect your energy. Your future self will thank you for it.
Mars retrograde in Gemini represents a cutting edge, decisive action, severing. When the Warrior is in the sign of the twins, our wit can be our shield or our stumbling block. During this time, pens and keystrokes are our swords, and flexibility is our skill to practice. However. It is a time that is right for miscommunication and downright fake news. Watch how my false or unsubstantiated statements surface during this time. It may be better to not get too caught up in all of it, as it will be a ball of yarn…difficult to untangle.
If you would like the Vedic (or Hindu) perspective on this entire transit, you might want to watch this excellent piece by Joni Patry: https://youtu.be/c5o9wRK-BdA. Remember...I offer the Western or Tropical astrological and spiritual view.
P.S. There's an eclipse path map at the end of this article. Check it out!
Da Other Stuff -
So many aspects to talk about! Jupiter sits retrograde at the 29th (Anaretic) degree of Pisces. Talk about fogginess! This aspect can create false hopes, ideals, or expectations. It doesn’t hold there though, and Jupiter is uncomfortable being the instigator. More a giver of boons than bummers, Jupiter is ready to go direct, which he will on December 20th, 2022. Jupiter in the sign of Pisces rules the qualities of spiritual matters, and he has been a balancing influence on all the zaniness. Retrograding in Pisces indicates that you need to take your spiritual thoughts and practices inside, where they can’t be seen. A station at the 29th Degree of Pisces emphasizes this point. You can’t wear your "wokeness" on your sleeve.
Saturn in Aquarius squares the whole thing, adding an element of authority and seriousness to the proceedings. We didn’t need this, but we have it. Watch that you don’t take it all on as the bottom line when next Tuesday rolls around. Saturn does enter Pisces as follows in this link: https://cafeastrology.com/events/saturn-enters-pisces/
Lastly Pluto in the late degrees of Capricorn is opposing transiting Black Moon Lilith and Pallas Athene at this moment. Emotions might run amok as Black Moon Lilith soundly rejects any attempts by the patriarchy to continue the growth and progress mantra, and the opposition to Pallas Athene may trumpet that a new approach is entirely necessary now. There is room for compromise, but with Pallas and BML conjunct in Cancer and opposed by Pluto, there is precious little wiggle room. This transit could propel us towards a more egalitarian society and be very positive or plunge us full-time into transhumanism and authoritarianism. The transit of Saturn in Aquarius, especially in 2021, should all give us pause. More on this major event later in the year.
Da Main Event...now? -
We will have to contend with the 2.5 months that Mars is retrograding in Gemini and the ingresses next spring of Saturn entering Pisces and Pluto entering Aquarius. The Mars thing could trigger a sense that something does need doing now, but with a retrograde in Gemini this energy isn’t just internalized but could be duplicitous as well. What does one do? Sit and wait is my advice. Don’t panic or over-compensate right now and try to remain patient and respond to whatever is happening in the moment (see above).
Oh, and I am recovering well and may pop up with a blog or podcast or two between now and May 1st, 2023. That’s kind of my date for re-emergence. Just saying…
In the meantime, don’t ever let the planets and stars dictate anything to your mind, but count them as influences we placed there to instruct and remind us of who we are. We’re never helpless, nor hopeless…unless we believe it to be so.
Blessings on your journey,

TE OF THE PLANET
by Isaac George
June 9th, 2022
Yes, I have blatantly plagiarized the title of a recently released film starring Michelle Yeoh. I've not even had the pleasure of seeing this work of cinematic art yet, but I am familiar enough with the plot to know that the central character could represent any one of us. If you've seen it, you will know what Michelle's character is facing. An audit by the Internal Revenue Service, and dilapidated laundry business barely able to provide a living for her and her bumbling husband, and strangers popping in from the future asking for her help to save the world. All in a day's work I'd say!
There are two sides or stories to the conundrum that the star of the movie, and us, all face. One side is all about the amount of effort and attention most of humanity is forced to expend just to stay afloat financially or socially in the current world structure. Most of the folks I know are simply exhaustipated (wiped out) by the demands of the daily routine, and the expectations arriving from all directions. Food shopping and prep, earning enough to pay for the food, rent/mortgage, put Junior through college, pay the bills, pay the taxes, keep dealing with 2-factor authentication every time you want to log into something, dealing with the partner, the in-laws, the neighbor who is building an extension on their home (you cannot hear yourself think, much less run an at-home business!), and the list goes on and on.
The other side of this circus is the possible reality that unity consciousness might bring to us if we had every barrier to it suddenly lifted. We just might flame out and disappear with the sheer immensity of seeing, knowing, and feeling everything, everywhere, all at once. Is that what Spirit/God/Goddess/All That Is experiences? How can one know for sure? How in the heck does the Great Spirit cope with all that anyway? These are some of the questions that I entertain when I wake up in the middle of the night.
One thing I can report on, is that when I had a unity experience about a year after my kundalini awakening occurred in 1994, it didn't feel at all like I imagined it to feel. It was...intimate, quiet, intense and relaxing all at the same time. Like being cradled in the arms of one's mother, yet totally alert and aware...of everything! Not just that, but aware that Everything is You, and You are in or are part of Everything. The aftermath or come-down was a devastating one for my ego...which was to be emotionally overwhelmed with gratitude, awe, wonder and ecstasy. Can you feel so much ecstasy without exploding? I guess so, cause I'm writing about it here.
The former side, the crazy upside-down busier than I have a right to be world is just plain nuts in my view. Our culture promotes and rewards striving and hard work, but it never praises anyone who chooses a path or inner or outer peace. Those types are lazy, or a burden on society. Most of my childhood programming centered on becoming a "productive member of society", which is code for a good, obedient little consumer. My mother's messages supported all of that - "go along to get along" or "don't rock the boat", and loving statements like that.
Fortunately, many of us (and if you're reading this you are probably part of this tribe) sort of awakened from our sleepwalking. Maybe some of us cottoned on to the con game no one else saw at a very early age. Others have had a midlife crisis, a divorce, and serious illness, a relationship gone bad, and then awaken during or after those event(s). We begin to REMEMBER. We have few words to describe it, but we somehow know that Life wasn't necessarily meant to be this mad or busy, or so full of compromises. Our souls knew better, and we left behind what we previously embraced, for it no longer resonated, no longer entranced us.
There are three upcoming astrological markers that will dovetail into the main points I’m sharing here. All the action happens on June 11th, and on both sides of June 15th-16th.
On June 11th at 11:51pm BST (10:51pm UT) transiting Venus meets up with and kisses Uranus at 16 degrees of Taurus. Can you say “unusual” or “unconventional” when it comes to sexual loving, flings with the opposite or same sex, and coming to terms with what our true natural values and needs are as regards our sexuality? I knew you could. This transit is brief but can certainly upend your own status quo regarding sexuality, which may lead you into unusual encounters with possible partners or with society at large (“...that is indecent and immoral, and you need to stop that now!”). You get my drift. Judgment always crops up when Uranus is in town and is wearing a bull costume. You may also have unusual and possibly revelatory experiences with your own sexual nature. Uranus encourages exploration and trying new things, so this weekend could be interesting! If you in fact have any aspects to anything at 16 degrees of Taurus, Scorpio, Aquarius or Leo, you may feel this “hit home”. The potential stinger in this conjunction could be a further eroding of the value of Bitcoin, fiat currencies (paper money), and digital money (the M3 money supply). The almost hyperinflation happening is definitely tied to Uranus in Taurus, as is the deflation of cryptocurrency values.
The next upcoming astrological markers that will dovetail into the main points I’ve been sharing here is the Full Moon in Sagittarius on the 14th squared to Neptune, followed by Neptune in Pisces being squared (challenged) by the Sun in Gemini on the 15th. Hermes, or Mercury, is a data hog and likes to collect information. Sometimes this causes mental indigestion. This Full Moon is lit up by the Neptune point...everything at 23 to 25 degrees of mutable signs. Like anything can happen but it may go unnoticed, or more delusion/confusion may arise, especially in the "news" or official pronouncements from the powers that rule. In other words, words and messages that deceive.
Another thing about this is the the Sun-Moon being square to the planet and sign that rules the waters (oceans, oil, amongst other things) and the everything everywhere. It will come as no surprise if we feel like we’re having more of an out-of-body experience while dealing with data overload, all at the same time. You might find yourself waking up from a dream and going right into a daydream. The veils will be thin, very thin, and all manner of tricksterish energy and entities will be around. Ground and earth yourself, that’s the remedy. Take your shoes off and wiggle toes in grass, or better yet, dirt or sand. And watch how much you engage with others in electronic mediums! Trolls and bad actors love this sort of dissociative energy.
The other aspect will that help is Mars and Chiron meet at exact midpoint of Aries on June 15th as well. Aries is the embodiment of “I Am”. The warrior and the Centaur meet, and this bodes well for those who recognize the divine value of individuation. You see, the film “Everything, Everywhere, All the Time” fragments the concept of a “self” and does so in a humorous way. Living in the digital soup that we all inhabit these days; it is becoming increasingly challenging to even feel who we are beyond the surface. Our inner life is more and more fragile and distant, hard to get a grip on, living in such an artificial electronic construct.
We can easily delude ourselves whilst in this environment, so it is super useful that Mars and Chiron team up now. It revs up the status of the individual, and the value of our inner self/being to a powerful degree. It could make us not only walk around saying “I Am” but acting more authentic. Caution: people might not like that and get riled and annoyed with you, or worse. But believe me, it is much better to be in trouble with others instead of being in trouble with yourself.
That’s my blog for this time, and I am still working on that massive piece on money, finance abundance and spirituality. Hopefully have that finished for later next week.
Have a great weekend and may your journey be filled with blessings.

On the next episode of "Revealing the Mysteries" which
airs LIVE this coming Sunday, June 12th 2022
This is kind of a Part Two to last week's episode, which you can listen to here.
The complete version with music will be in the Revealing the Mysteries Radio Archives later on today, June 10th, 2022
Synopsis: In the early part of the last decade a mysteriously unidentified individual by the name of Satoshi Nakamoto unveiled the world’s first digital coin – Bitcoin. In the intervening years words like “blockchain” and “cryptocurrency” spawned claims that this revolution in currency would free millions of people from the current financial systems. Are the claims of the crypto enthusiasts all that they’re cracked up to be? Well, not really. Cryptocurrencies and the coming central bank digital currencies are just one part of what I call the Money Game, which is an elaborate con game that’s been going since the Middle Ages! Whether it is paper or digital money, the definition, understanding and very nature of money is no longer what it once was. These days everyone simply accepts that money is a necessary feature of life on this planet. But what if it could be otherwise? What would our world look like without money? Does the size of your bank balance mean you’ve arrived spiritually? How do spiritual traditions view money? And finally, is money tied up with power and sex?
In UK and Europe - 6:30pm BST, 7:30pm CEDT
In North America - 13:30pm EDT, 10:30am PDT
