So much is happening now, all the time and in all manner of ways, that sometimes it seems that we would all be much better off of a planetary holiday was declared so that absolutely nothing was going to happen…at all, for maybe a week or two?
The reasons for this are not simply all explained away via astrology. I’ve always been fascinated with astrology, and it’s been running there parallel to all of my metaphysical and spiritual experiences and investigations since my mid-twenties. I never planned on becoming an astrologer. Then again, I never planned on a lot of what has happened in my life. Not…even…close.
Cue my ego shrugging and looking a bit lost
When it comes right down to it, what’s happening in these times is way bigger than that. In fact, it’s a big deal.
Astrology is a convenient language form, symbolic and metaphorical in nature, to describe an interactive process of consciousness between an individual’s soul memory (karma) and the 3D construct we are living in. There is also karma for groups of people, and nations too, but we’ll keep it simple for this example. If you were able to teleport to somewhere outside of the orbit of Pluto, your birth chart would no longer be of use. Your perceptual compass and framework would be drastically altered, and I dare say, so would your ideas about yourself and the local universe you’d inhabit. I would imagine that the same thing happens after we die. A completely new reference point is acquired.
What is pertinent right now is to recognize the increasing interest in the awareness of the masses about energy, astrology, spirituality, healing modalities and more. I feel this is directly proportional to a massive awakening process that was predicted in astronomical and astrological terms, i.e. the Mayan Calendar with its end date of December 21st, 2012, and other major indicators that show that we have already crossed the boundary, and are literally finding ourselves in a sort of borderland area between the old paradigm and one we haven’t entered as yet. There is always a lot of astrology happening, but the difference now is that more people are actually feeling these changes in their awareness, their emotions and even their physical bodies and local ‘reality’. And it is mighty stressful, exciting or downright confusing to many.
Some of this is due to the pace of life in modern competitive-based societies and the electronics in our environment. We may have uneasy feelings that our authorities or experts are at the end of their tether and really are pretty clueless. This all contributes to the general anxiety I hear about from clients and friends. It also contributes to the arising of many people who are the new leaders; those who either are setting the pace, or are in a preparatory stage to do so sometime in the near future.
Part of my knowing is that this seems to be a way for our planet, Gaia-Sophia, to get our attention. She is awake and shifting in response to a number of stimuli…or perhaps She is initiating it all deliberately! Global climate weirdness may be partly due to the destructive impact of our industrious missteps and technological blunders, but I feel that our Sun’s recent antics and the increasing incidence of the weakening of our planet’s magnetic field may also be playing a big part. There are simply too many influences and factors to take into account here, so I recommend you engage in your own research.
The difference between ‘now’ and 25 years ago is that while we are in this borderland state we are feeling like we have been stripped of a layer of ego insulation that kept us from feeling too much of it at any given moment. That’s changing…fast. We are no longer immune to feeling the collective space we are in, and that includes the animal, plant and mineral kingdoms…the entire biosphere! We are becoming more aware of boundaries and lack of boundaries. We are becoming more empathic, and it’s very disconcerting for the uninitiated. Reactionary behaviours are the response to unfamiliar emotions and unconscious material. There is a feeling of having less control, of free-floating ‘impendingness’ and it is not at all easy to cope with on some days. The invisible is becoming more and more relevant. This is the Big Deal. We are in it, and no kidding.
One primary arbiter of all of this energy, in astrobabble, is the planet Jupiter, and the sign of Virgo. The other is Mars and Saturn, both retrograde in Sagittarius. Jupiter is the super optimist, full of joy, exuberance and all manner of Sagittarian silliness. Virgo is all about Service, and its shadow compulsion is overthinking it all, and wearing a mask…keeping up appearances. Jupiter in Virgo might be a call to happy service, balanced with individuation into our True Nature. The opposite of Virgo is Pisces, the realm of compassion, dreams and endings. Its shadow compulsion is self-delusion and addictions. We’ve been use to 2,000 plus years of serving the ‘system’ and masking our deepest human instincts under religions based on self-sacrifice and hating our material connection to the Earth, the body. That paradigm is dying. That’s why there’s so much grieving under the surface. We feel our self-betrayal as personal…and it is! The internal promises we made to keep ourselves safe so we could be acceptable and not lose our tribe, our community, our beloveds, has cost so much to maintain. We can now begin to lay aside those burdens, and walk together as equals. But first, there are some old hurts to heal. This healing is underway beginning now, and extending into August and into September. This is the Mars-Saturn retrograde bit, covering the fields that Saturn was plowing through in 2014-15.
So I’ve got a suggestion just for a week or two. Avoid all extremes. Try not to force being positive, and try not to indulge too much in feeling overwhelmed or low. Feel into things, rather than ramming ahead with what you think is best for you. Try slowing down and asking for the guidance you need to come from inside you. Engage with your feelings and emotions; nurture your body, commune with nature or natural things as much as possible. Eat well…whatever feels right to you right now. Get sleep when you need it, even if it’s three in the afternoon. Limit watching network television. Take a break from trying to drown out the silence with your ear buds and iPod or other devices
Above all, ask for help.
Ask for hugs, a shoulder to cry on, or hand to hold. Ask whatever your idea of the Divine is for help, no matter what it is you are needing, and allow yourself to be provided for. Keep it simple. Don’t overthink this…okay?
Try it…take a vacation from the maelstrom. Ask to be shown a new way. Ask for a new deal.
Here’s a manifestation hint: Give away freely that which you need. Hugs, a shoulder for someone else to cry on, and friendly ear to give a listen. Money for the homeless one on the street. Let go of your expectations.
You don’t have to keep the cards that are in your hand just now. Lay those things down. You deserve better. Much more better. Ask for it…and remember this. You chose to be here now, to participate in the Big Deal, and you do deserve the very best, of everything. Drop your masks, drop your karma, and drop your resistance.
We’re all infinite beings in an infinite loving Cosmos and we are always safe.
Choose Life, every single time. No….matter…what.
With infinite love,

Lunar Eclipse – March 23rd, 2016
By Isaac George
March 22nd, 2016
"In true love, happiness is not an individual matter. There is no distinction between the one who loves and the one who is loved. Your suffering is my suffering; my happiness is your happiness. Lover and beloved are one." ~Thich Naht Hanh
The bookend to the Solar Eclipse of March 8th-9th will arrive tomorrow at 12:01pm GMT. This is a partial or annular Lunar Eclipse of the Full Moon, with the Sun at 3 degrees 17 minutes of Aries, and the Moon opposite at 3 degrees 17 minutes of Libra. As I recounted in my Sunday blog, “Creative Chaos”, there are strong connections to what happened six months ago during the Solar and Lunar Eclipses of September 2015. You can read or re-read that post here. Suffice it to say that this is a fundamental reset of the “game”, and it will not only set the tone for the next six months, till the eclipses of September 2016, but quite conceivably for many months beyond that juncture. Time will tell, as it always does.
Into the Way Back Machine!
I’ve been looking back to when there were any lunations (New Moons, Full Moons) or eclipses in Aries and Libra between 2011 and 2013. I selected 2011, because Uranus entered the sign of Aries on March 11th, 2011…the day of the massive temblor and tsunami that devastated Sendai province in northeastern Japan. I found two charts, one in March of 2012 and another one also in March of 2013 that are very close to the one this is coming up this Wednesday, and is also strongly connected to the “Blood Moon” Lunar Eclipse of September 28th, 2015. In all of the four charts the Sun and Moon are tightly arranged between 2 degrees and 7 degrees of these two signs. I’ve included them with the chart for our Lunar Eclipse tomorrow at the end of this blog.
Finally, the last blast from the past to reveal was that there was a Lunar Eclipse at almost the exact same degrees of Aries-Libra as the next one this Wednesday (chart below as well). If you can reel in the years and go back to March 24th,1997, reflect on what was happening for you at that time, it may put a huge spotlight of understanding on your current situation, and provide you with the wisdom and courage to act in accordance with your Inner Truth.
"With Aries-Libra, relating is the name of the game. The challenge is how do we balance the needs or desires of the Self (Mars-Masculine) with the needs and desires of The Other (Venus-Feminine)? The seemingly eternal dance between these two forces makes for a lot of interesting poetry, music, art, fables…and tragedies."
Oh, You Again…”
Simply stated, Aries is all about the Self…”I Am.” Equally simple is that Libra is about “The Other.” There is always a relationship happening in everything…throughout the Cosmos, from the subatomic level to the galaxies themselves. Some physicists theorize that there are bonds and bleedthroughs between parallel Universes. Anyway, the Aries-Libra polarity represents the astrological version of The Lovers card in the Tarot, or the Sacred Marriage from the mystery schools. It manifests from the strictly personal level to the Universal Level. Beyond the duality of form, they are Divine Principles that emanate into all manifest forms, and yet are completely fused in the Absolute and are completely indivisible. That’s big supra-metaphysical theorising on my part, but feels right as a model.
With Aries-Libra, relating is the name of the game. The challenge is how do we balance the needs or desires of the Self (Mars-Masculine) with the needs and desires of The Other (Venus-Feminine)? The seemingly eternal dance between these two forces makes for a lot of interesting poetry, music, art, fables…and tragedies. From an evolutionary astrological perspective for the past four years we have been on a revolutionary road of dismantling and reforming our psyches through the uncomfortable crucible of intimate and challenging relationships, and all of them have been steeped in a shamanic unravelling and healing of our relationship karma. When I use the word “karma”, I’d like for you to reference that word in a new way. Think “unconscious patterns based on equally hidden vows or beliefs”. Throughout time and space, we have met ourselves again and again with many of our “other selves” and have sought to balance the eternal dance that is ultimately about realising Love as a state or condition of being.
"Perhaps the age of digital love is about to have a rude awakening, or perhaps we are awakening to the rudeness of digital socialization."
Is there a manual for this thing?
Okay, it hasn’t been easy, and it’s not a process that is culminating with Wednesday’s latest edition of Aries-Libra lunations/eclipses. I don’t have a crystal ball, or a road map, or even a factory issued user’s manual, but I do sense that this event on Wednesday may be a gateway to the final purification of eons of relationship trauma and drama. At least that’s what my instincts are saying just now. We are being given an evolutionary push to change our beliefs, and more importantly, our understanding about the purpose and potentials of human intimacy and conscious partnerships. It can be sometimes difficult to discern, but almost every challenge our species now faces, from how we care for ourselves or look after each other, to how we reinvent and reimagine our economic, political, scientific and societal structures… to how we end our mistreatment of the planet and her resources, hinges on how much we trust in ourselves and the ones we love the most.
We pump the message that we need to love ourselves, and yet we are starving for connection. In his cynical and disenfranchised tone, Elliot, the hacker in the new television drama “Mr Robot”, bemoans the current state of human love: “[…is it because we’re] spamming with our running commentary of bullshit masquerading as insight, our social media faking as intimacy?” Perhaps the age of digital love is about to have a rude awakening, or perhaps we are awakening to the rudeness of digital socialization.
"I feel that real spiritual love, one that is rooted in mutual respect and deep honesty, is extremely romantic. It gives us that sense of “coming home” that we all long for…and know we deserve."
The Rest of the Story
While the foreground is the Sun and the Moon in the Lunar Eclipse, the background cast is equally important. The day after the Eclipse Saturn will station retrograde in Sagittarius. He will move direct on August 14th at 9 degrees of Sag, and be very close to Mars at 5 Sagittarius. The upcoming Mars retrograde in Sagittarius and Scorpio is a story in and of itself, so I will save that for an April post.
On the day of the Eclipse Saturn will be in a stressful T-Square with Venus and Neptune in Pisces, and retrograde Jupiter in Virgo. I feel that having this happen just before Saturn goes into inward (retrograde) motion is a phase of reviewing and integrating the energies and lessons of all the previous eclipses, and indeed, or all the Aries-Libra contacts of the past four years. It’s a time for introspection, and it won’t work to be doing hard-nosed analysing (Virgo) about matters of the heart and soul. The Venus-Neptune conjunction will be the main energy here…asking us to be compassionate and forgiving, and to also re-image a Higher aspect of romantic and intimate Love. I use the word romance not in a story-book way, but in a way to celebrate the “lift” that we experience with romantic love. I feel that real spiritual love, one that is rooted in mutual respect and deep honesty, is extremely romantic. It gives us that sense of “coming home” that we all long for…and know we deserve. I highly recommend this amazing video clip to get a better feel for what my poor words are trying to express. True Love and the Four Elements of Love – Thich Nhat Hanh. The first seven minutes carries the nugget of the message.
Mars in Sagittarius will be trine the Sun and is sextile to the Moon. This adds a strong but egalitarian tone of asking that we tell the Truth…to ourselves and whomever we’re currently partnered with. Even if we are not with a significant other, our intention towards emanating compassion and love to those we are in connection with, in whatever form, will still have a potent effect. Ending conflict both from within and towards others is the idea. Mercury will be conjoined to the Sun as well, so there may be an impulsiveness to ask questions in a very rapid-fire style, like a special interrogator questioning a suspect in a crime. Uncomfortable but necessary truths may suddenly come to light. The juxtaposition between Mars and Mercury will be daunting, and a bit paradoxical. You may be thinking, "Do I stick to the hard facts only, or do I allow leeway for compassionate understanding?" I suppose the answer to that will depend on what type of information is unearthed. If there is no longer any resonance with your current situation, then this eclipse may signal that it’s time to move on and open to a higher more resonant partnership that is based on true love, transparency and equality.
The asteroid goddess Juno is retrograde (inverted) in Scorpio, and will be in a harmonious flow with Venus and Neptune. The need for passion within our partnering is denoted by this placement. Juno typically is associated with the traditions of marriage, but in Scorpio, marriage is elevated to a sacrament through passion and sexuality. There can be no true intimacy without being naked in body and soul to the Beloved. This is soul Tantra, and is something we all possess, but has been civilised out of us and forgotten. Tantric practices were invented to reawaken us to the primal truth that is in the divine nature within our bodily forms. Ecstasy is a natural state that exists when we are in harmony with Nature, with the Goddess.
"We all deserve the love that we give away, and the love that we receive. The union of hearts will be a potent power for changing the course of the future. Give freely…it all comes back to you in some way, and at some time."
The Next Steps
Between now and the next set of eclipses in September I feel that it will be a time of greater movement and greater clarity in our understanding of ourselves, of others and what our hearts and souls truly desire to create in this world. Everything is connected, and the arena of our interpersonal relationships echoes throughout the human and planetary construct. If we truly wish to have a different future, then the ghosts of our past must be confronted and lovingly and empathically embraced. We cannot cure prior wounding without acknowledging our held emotions and deep longings. The relationship issues we had with our parents are reflections of all of our previous bonding experiences with each other as lovers, spouses, siblings, parents or even just workmates and friends. To change the story of our personal and collective past is to alter the future.
We have the potential to live the life of our dreams. I suggest that those dreams include others in many ways. To balance our needs with the greater needs of our entire species is the way forward. Everyone has a right to clean water, good food, warm shelter, comfortable clothing and personal safety. And everyone needs closeness, affection, recognition and love. Dr. Dean Ornish’s book, “Love and Survival” is a wonderful testament to the power of connection and what it means to be fully human. I recommend it to you as one of many potential guides to how we can imagine and create new and sacred ways of relationship, ways that don’t cause us to fall back into martyrdom or self-effacement. More importantly, we can end the cycle of heartache and heartbreak that is at the core of our spiritual wounding…the false sense that we are separate from our Source, and from each other.
Move forward into the sacred marriage with your inner Beloved and invite that Beloved into your purpose for being here on this planet at this time. Let your deepest dreams and yearnings be expressed. Begin with yourself, then with your beloved, then in communion with others of your “tribe”, then in wider community. It grows exponentially when we choose love, collaboration and cooperation.
We all deserve the love that we give away, and the love that we receive. The union of hearts will be a potent power for changing the course of the future. Give freely…it all comes back to you in some way, and at some time.

Okay…synchronize your watches. Oh, why bother!! There’s plenty of time…an eternity of it in fact. So, I'll have time for two more blogs after this one for sure! One next week for the Solstice and Full Moon Christmas, and a look ahead for 2016.
Have you been having disturbed sleep patterns? Are you waking up in the middle of the night, and then think five minutes has passed, and it's been an hour? Think of something you need upstairs, then once you got there, completely forgot what the heck it was you needed?
Time. Why is it speeding up, and where is it going? Is someone stealing it? Is it going faster for real, or is that an illusion? Are there Time Bandits messing with our heads, and our Reality here? I loved that movie by Terry Gilliam of Monty Python. If you haven’t seen it, I highly recommend you do so, for it contains metaphors for our subject today.
Now, I wish to preface what I’m about to discuss from my own personal experiences, especially of the past twenty odd years. The nature of “time” hasn’t been normal since the shamanic-spiritual-sexual emergence that started for me in January of 1994. This was a full blown kundalini awakening.
Time started to morph drastically within weeks of it initiating. Within those first days I began noticing strange anomalous gaps in my experience of time/space. Some short term forgetfulness happened.
I couldn’t believe that what felt like the passage of 30 minutes was actually in linear time spanning a few hours or more. The other phenomenon that began was the appearance on my digital clocks of seeing 11:11 (am and pm), 12:12 (same), 1:11, 2:22, 3:33, 4:44 and 5:55! This crazy stuff went on for months, and it wasn’t ever fully explained to me that year. By November I encountered others also contending with this strange stuff. My sleep patterns were majorly disrupted, and I was amazed that I was running on 3-4 hours of sleep for years afterwards, but never was short on energy or strength. Quite amazing how my health seemed unaffected and even improved in certain ways. But, I digress.
Now, the triple and quad numbers thing stayed with me for almost a decade or so, but did, to a certain extent, eventually diminish. So did a majority of the kundalini symptoms. However, shamanic awakenings do not have a sell-buy date. They go dormant, but can become a trigger in the future, or become triggered by some external stimuli. Ultimately the Soul is in charge as to what is transpiring in these experiences, and the timing too. So my kundalini stuff, and the preponderance of seeing these coded numbers and the associated incidences of sleep and time anomalies started up big time for me again in 2012-2013…and continue to the present day.
What does this have to do with now, and the weird stuff that’s going on with time and your relationship to it? Well, it’s all connected in one way or another to larger cycles. Some of these are astrologically explained, others astronomically deduced. The Mayan Calendar countdown to the Winter Solstice of 2012 is one factor. The other one that was operating concurrently with that was the movement of the planet Uranus into Aries (March 2011), and then the Uranus-Pluto Squares that are part of Collective Initiation (Kundalini Awakening to Yin-tegrity) that began in the summer of 2012. The big deal of the ending of the Mayan Long Count Calendar was called “The End of Time.” Whoa!! Big claim that. Everyone expected something momentous to occur in the world at the time. Some folks did have personal events of one kind or another, but for the most part, the “normal” world seemed to continue on its way without interruption, until this year, and specifically, the time between mid-September and right now.
The “big why” for this is still a bit unclear to me, but my intuition says that it is rooted in two things. That Mayan Calendar event in Dec.2012 and what our Planet is going through recently. I don’t mean, socially, politically, or even spiritually. The biosphere, the deep ecology of Gaia is changing…and I think in such a dramatic way that it is altering our perception of time, the way memory works, and how our sleep patterns and dreaming function. It is provoking a lot of the stuff we are see unfolding on the world stage too.
Part of this can be traced to solar activity and how it interacts with the geomagnetic fields of our planet. Some of it is the result of gamma particles streaming in from the galactic core. Recent alignments astrologically to the Super Galactic Center (I will avoid astro-babble here) are probably a big trigger for a lot of it as well.
The symptoms that many are encountering are quite numerous. Here’s my list of 7 Major Indicators:
One reader reports some rather interesting events in her personal awareness. Perhaps you'll resonate with some of these, which I've paraphrased:
"Hearing: low hums, changes in frequency, blocked ears, rising pitches and odd harmonics that vary with changes in barometric pressure and weather. Visual anomalies: sparkling around stuff, or vision is shaky. Coloured shapes: aqua and bright green, pulsations. Some geometric forms, like spirals. Spacial stuff: general spaciness, dizzyness, vertigo, feelings of disassociation. Body aches and pains: that move around the body, changes in temps in various parts of the body, heart palpitations, racing pulse, shortness of breath."
Of course the list goes on, and I invite you, the Reader, to comment and add your experiences to the dialogue.
So, you may wondering how are you supposed to handle this stuff? Patience with self is key. So is extreme self care. You can't will all of this to stop. It may feel like you're under attack (see guy at right), and I will not lie to you and say there aren't dark energies or aspects that aren't too happy about all the changes that are happening, or that have the potential of changing. That's a discussion for another post though.
For sleep disorders, there's Valerian Root, Hops, and the time-tested one, Magnesium (preferably in water soluble form...like Natural Calm). For memory, there are herbs that seem to work, but check with a naturopath or some other health care professional for some suggestions. Best not to fight your own memory, and get in the habit of writing things you need to do on a list, or add to a calendar app on your phone or pad.
For anger and emotions, see a counsellor or a coach, discover EFT tapping, flower essences, EMDR, or just get out into Nature and walk, walk, walk until you're tired. Don't stifle though, and be willing to allow whatever arises to arise while giving yourself empathy. Witness your having the emotions, but you don't have to let your mind go into fight or flight, or label it as a threat.
Electronics is another area. I use EnergyDOTs from a company in the UK. Reputable stuff. It won't stop your stuff from fritzing, but you'll be calmer in the face of electronic disruption. Again, get away from your gadgets and unplug for a bit each day.
If you are super sensitive (empathic), then energy work, or specialized tools may help. As you can imagine, I do a lot of work with others having spiritual emergencies or spontaneous empathic awareness. You can modify without having to shut down completely. Getting out into Nature always helps too. If you feel drawn to do so, I can help support you and provide you with the tools for navigating and enhancing your experience. Just contact me by clicking here.
I have no suggestions for missing time. It's a mystery for the moment.
So there’s something really afoot, and it cannot be ignored. If Uranus in Aries is the awakening to Yintegrity (the Divine Feminine), and the end of the Mayan Calendar is the end of our being in the grip of historical time and Karma, then we are moving into more of what the Aboriginals refer to as the Dreamtime. Our imaginal realm is beginning to surface and supersede our Yangtegrity-based reality. For the uninitiated, Yangtegrity is “Let’s make a plan and build it” goal-oriented Patriarchy. Yintegrity is “I feel to do this now, cause I want to” intuitive and instinctual Feminine creativity. The attitude most in harmony with Nature and the Planet is Yintegrity. It is supportive, collaborative and non-competitive. It seeks to create community, not competition. Yangtegrity is part of the “been there, done that” continuum. Uranus-Pluto is definitely the switch between paradigms.
Since Uranus is involved, and is prodding us towards “no time” Yintegrity, I must reiterate that I have no way or means of predicting any outcomes here. Uranus is community AND independence AND unpredictability. It’s kind of like this: “I’ll know what I need to know when I need to know it. If I needed to know it NOW, I would already know it.” One prayer for these times could be “I always receive whatever I need before I know I need it.”
Of course all of this, including this blog, is…well, just in the nick of Time!
Go ahead, steal some time. No one’s looking. Or if they do see you, they’ll forget about it in 10 seconds…9, 8, 7, 6…

11th November, 2015
Well, it’s 11:11. This date is etched in my memory for many reasons.
By November 1994 the spontaneous kundalini awakening I had been experiencing since January was finally calming down enough that I could start socializing a bit. I ran into an old friend who invited me to the first channelling event I had ever been too. Some ex-investment banker named Loren was channelling an entity named Jabbar. I was clueless. The night of November 10th, 1994 I was in the audience. The channelling began, and this big hulk of a man seemingly turned into a shuffling character that reminded me of a Chinese Shaolin monk. Speaking in an odd accent and time signature, he addressed that packed meeting room about “ascension” symptoms, like seeing triple digit numbers on clocks and license plates of cars…seeing 4:44, 5:55, 1:11, and especially, 11:11. He talked about it being 11:11 the next day. As I sat there transfixed, I realized that my cheeks were wet with tears. I’d been having these experiences for 11 months now, and here was a roomful of 50 people all going through the same thing? I didn’t know what to think or say.
Now I am going to fast forward to 1998. I’d moved to Sedona, Arizona the previous March, and without wanting it to happen, and in fact resisting it every step of the way, I began channelling a being named Archangel Ariel. My first public event was on November 11th, 1998. I sat among another 50 or so people and I don’t recall much of anything that happened. It do remember it was recorded, and people afterwards were wowed and grateful. What followed on from that was six years of road travel to facilitate private sessions, group presentations and workshops, and also having my newsletter -based channelled messages published in New Age publications worldwide.
My long-running tour pretty much culminated during the week of November 11th, 2003 on the Big Island of Hawaii. For two consecutive years I had been invited to Kailua-Kona to co-facilitate Dolphin Swim Seminars with Joan Ocean. These were magical times for me, and very powerful too. The Harmonic Concordance was happening on November 8th, 2003, and I was slated to do a public channelled event at the Royal Kona Resort on the night of 11:11. Another magical night, made more so by that fact I met the woman that evening I would marry the following September…in Scotland!
The time signature of 11:11 also figures prominently in another year around November 10th-11th, 2013. I was attending a conference in London that weekend about lucid dreaming, out of body experiences and shamanic practices. The “moment” of significance was the keynote talk by Tim Freke on the evening of November 10th, and a flurry of correspondences with a dear friend that happened the next day – November 11th. It was the start of many huge changes that would proceed from that weekend to the present time.
Today is also a New Moon in Scorpio, at 19 degrees of Scorpio at 5:47pm GMT. The Sabian Symbol for this is 20 Scorpio, which has current significance for me, as I’m about to spill the beans about a major change in my work. The Symbol is:
“A Woman Drawing Aside Two Dark Curtains That Closed The Entrance To A Sacred Pathway”
(from The Sabian Symbols by Lynda Hill)
So, what this is saying to me is so timely, I can hardly believe it. For about four years now I have been putting myself out there as an astrologer, a soul-based or evolutionary astrologer to be exact. I’ve always been into astrology, and it was a major part of my healing journey in the wake of my spiritual emergence/Kundalini awakening 21 years ago. I enjoy it immensely, and felt that it would be a natural replacement part for my old channelling/counselling function, so I could use my intuitive abilities in a different context. However, just recently it came to my attention that; 1) being an astrologer wasn’t financially supporting me, 2) there are many more people who are out there doing astrology for a living than there were five years ago…the market is a bit saturated, and 3) it is NOT, professionally speaking, my first love. It does utilize all my natural listening, counselling, intuitive and psychological skills, but something’s been missing. The past two weeks, the missing components have been returning.
I don’t intend to go into giving you an entirely new CV right here, but I have come to realize something very important. I have been hiding out…been keeping certain parts of who I am in the shadows all these years. With all the talk of showing up as authentically as possible, I am now repatriating some of the biggest gifts, skills and genius that I’ve always had right there, just where I could tap into them if I needed them, then conveniently put them out of sight again. My first love is Love itself. What I know goes with that is my intense desire and passion to help others break free…to live from authentic passion…and yes, with Desire.
My Kundalini experience was multi-fold. It was triggered by some astrological transits, I know that, but the ignition point was love. Love of the Divine Feminine and Nature, and it was spiritual, cosmic, intimate, sexual, emotional, and very transformational. It reminded me of the “I” within, and has taken me back to Nature and the knowing that this planet is a living Entity. My First Love includes relating, relationships, communication, communing, feeling our feelings fully, sacred intimacy with safety and boundaries, the merging of the senses, Spirit and Self, to assist others to live in the way that is from their truest and greatest vision of Who They Are. And, it’s about returning to our nature, and to Nature. This is the core of all our healing work.
This may all be sounding and looking like a hodgepodge at the moment, but it will get more concise as I work with it. This past week has been some of the most profound reconnections to inner guidance that I’ve had in ages. I’m receiving visions and direction on how to revise my work, and how I want to share it. It is a work in progress, but it is going very fast. Thanks for you for your patience, as this is just writing itself at the moment.
So, the website is undergoing changes already. I’m going to get out in front of people more. I was going to teach an online introduction to astrology course, and although I love to teach, this subject is so broad, so deep and complicated, that I am feeling to let it go in favor or a series of webinars and podcasts on key subjects (which I love and know inside and out) that I know you will be most interested in. Then I will begin crafting courses with practical applications that yield real results! I will continue to use my astrological skills in the context of coaching, mentoring and some group work and webinars. It is relevant, but I see that there are many other very important ways in which I can create a greater impact and love what I do more, and not (hopefully) have to strive to make a living to express my unique Genius. If I can help a few of you do that too, then it’s all worth it.
Look for more in the next few blogs…I’m going to be enjoying seeing what happens next. Whatever happens, it will be done from the heart.
Have a blessed 11:11, wherever you are. I love you.

I am morphing into a heretical evolutionary astrologer. In other words, with a few future exceptions, I will be blogging less about lunar events, eclipses, etc. There are a number of reasons for this, which I’ll cover in a different series of blogs that will be coming up in the next few weeks, but suffice it to say that as an evolutionary, or soul-based, astrologer, it’s time to evolve! Perhaps the term “pirate astrologer” might suit. Hmm…star larceny might not work. Now that’s out of the way, time to focus on this week’s festivities.
There’s a lovely being whose been messaging me for a week or so now, asking “when will things settle down?” My pat answer to her, and others, is “not in the foreseeable future.” Today is a good example. It’s a New Moon in Libra, and yes, there is a HUGE amount of energy pressing down on all of us regarding relationships; our relationship with Self, with others, or a significant (and possibly difficult) “other.” With each passing day, it appears that external and internal forces are coaxing, if not downright pushing us to make decisions…to choose a path, a new direction or commitment. And this is indeed what is occurring, and will continue to occur with increasing intensity. (The chart is below, and the exact moment of the New Moon is 1:05BST, 12:05GMT, October 13th. It occurs on October 12th in North and South America.)
When is it going to settle down? I’ve got no idea, and my advice is don’t look for some sort of external reprieve to suddenly return you, me or the rest of the world to some somnambulistic version of our previous worldly experience (think the Eisenhower years of the 1950’s, or Marty McFly’s lifestyle in “Back to the Future” during the 1980’s). It’s not going to morph suddenly into a future Utopia either (remember 2012?). Nobody is going to get to sleepwalk through the next decade or so, and I’ll stake my astrological reputation on it. Now, before you shut down and call me a negativist and accuse me of fear-mongering, I’d just like to ask you to look at how positive these times and the potential future times can be if we are stimulated, prodded, pushed and otherwise compelled to evolve out of our dysfunctional beliefs, habits and general brainwashing about how things are and how they’re supposed to be. The time for compromising your values or soul-instincts in order to please others and just get along in the Matrix is becoming more untenable with each transit.
This New Moon is only part of the energy that is ripping away the veils from our eyes. It’s activated and activating Uranus in Aries (retrograde) and that guy is traveling in close proximity with his feminine counterpart, the dwarf planet Eris. Eris is like a biker chick that’s looking to disturb your civilised sensibilities. The other activation is the inconjunct (tension) between the New Moon and Chiron retrograde in Pisces. This placement will ask all of us what our deepest despairs, losses and childhood wounds have been, and we will need to feel them, not intellectualize them. No room in the new paradigm for our unhealed inner child baggage. To be soft, yielding and compassionate with ourselves as we invite these soul parts back into the fold is the only way through the tension. It could get very edgy and a bit messy…let it do that. Diplomacy may be in short supply, as there are sudden shocks and insights regarding significant others that may upset your previous assumptions.
Venus and Saturn are the Razor’s Edge Gang today and over the next few days. In a close and tense square to one another, Venus demands a high level of ethics in Virgo…a purity of intent and purpose, while Saturn in Sagittarius is like a prosecuting attorney, pushing the defendant (you, other, or both) to come clean with the truth. Hear that sound? That’s because the veil of illusion and denial getting ripped apart.
Have a box of Kleenex nearby at all times.
Now on to the next order of business, which is about Jupiter and Venus conjunct in Virgo, and which will be in a trine Pluto in Capricorn on October 16th. Perhaps it’s time to watch the markets again.
Business as usual is going to also be undergoing the gravitational crunch over the next few months/years. The old models will be disintegrating at a more accelerated pace. Our economic model is currently fueled by two factors – greed or fear. There’s an astrological art known as mundane astrology that has been tracking trends in the financial and business world since before the last crash in 2008, and they were mostly right about that one happening. Now these astrologers are sounding the alarm bells that we may be headed into another not-so-nice situation, mainly because the fundamentals that caused the downturn in 2008 have never been addressed. In case you think I’m making this stuff up, take a moment to look at some of the headlines. Investors are paying attention...especially to the situation in China. This is only one article, but many governments and financial institutions are getting nervous, or creating the nervousness. Read more about it here.
Can our business model be reformed? For a number of reasons it’s very doubtful. I remember in the 90’s that some people who were awakening spiritually thought it would be possible to hang out in the corporate arena and effect change from the inside out. As former U.S. President Jimmy Carter discovered the hard way, it was easier to campaign on the promise to completely reform the U.S Federal governmental bureaucracy than it was to actually do it. And, as Buckminster Fuller recommended, we will need to invent something new and better to take the place of hyper-capitalism and neo-liberal policies (austerity is good for you!). You probably sense that all is not well with our financial and economic systems, and this is another reason the anxiety is at an all-time high. Perhaps higher than the Dow Jones Index on the Wall Street! The whole planet is operating from a place of cortisol poisoning. Don’t try to ignore it, because it’s not going to go away until we face facts and the truth of our illusions (Virgo-Sagittarius).
One of the primary energies this week is to download your own Soul Program. This will, by its very nature, not be what your mind will think it might be. Your “mission” is unique to you, and, it is integral with everyone else’s mission in one sense or another. You might find yourself outside of the mainstream, and wonder where your tribe/family/allies are hiding out. You may still try to operate within the “system” and it will work for the time being, until it no longer feeds your soul. One thing to assiduously avoid in any case is the idea of spiritual significance. In other words, you and your being here is no more or less important than another soul’s mission or purpose. Cooperation will have to replace the old ideas of competition. You just need to ask for it and cooperate with it, without trying to define it...for now anyway.
It would also be useful to examine some of our unconscious language we utilize in the marketplace and our lives. Here’s one example of what I’m talking about.
For all of us who are in the helping professions, life coaches, therapists, healers, bodyworkers and so forth, I’d recommend ditching the overused and well-worn term “client”. The origin of the word “client” is as follows:
Origin of client:
Old French ; from Classical Latin cliens, follower, retainer ; from Indo-European base an unverified form klei-, to lean, as in Classical Latin clinare (see incline); basic sense, “one leaning on another (for protection)”

According to one of the Merriam -Webster’s Dictionary references, a client as “a person who engages the professional services of another; also: “patron, customer”. But get this, the first definition is “dependent.”
A health coach I know told me that she likes to think of those that come to her that she’s a professional friend for them. That’s a new clarity in the business relationship…being there as a friend!
It’s so ironic. We are all striving to become more self-actualized and self-sufficient, and at the same time we run the risk of becoming dependent on our “clients” and they become dependent on us. The therapeutic model needs an upgrade too. I look around and am amazed that our culture now demands so much of us, and a lot of folks are finding it harder and harder just to keep up. A larger swath of the population than ever before is in therapy, or on medication…or needs to be. Coaching and therapies are proliferating exponentially, and at the same time things are still getting crazier. Just noticing, and wondering if there’s something we’re missing in the equation.
I feel that what most of us really want is quite basic, and very human. We want to feel good!!
We all are Love, and crave love. Finding and feeling acceptance with one another is giving voice to love. To be listened to, seen and deeply understood is love in action. To be enfolded, and to be cherished…just for being human is Love demonstrated. To feel secure in our intimacies, in our strengths and in our vulnerabilities is Love as Protector. To just feel what it would be like without so much striving, stress and worry would be welcome. Should not Life be more than jumping from one stress management and coping mechanism to another? That in itself produces more stress…trying to find things to reduce stress. Do we have to reach the breaking point in order to change? We are so imaginative, inventive and creative…gifts that beg to be made manifest will begin to emerge from the crucible of change, the ripping of the veil. Welcome to the new normal.
Perhaps the planetary eco-emergency is something that will actually propel humanity into sanity again. I don’t know for sure, but we obviously need to behave differently if we, and most of the other species on this world, are to do more than survive. To thrive will require a spiritual renaissance, but I feel it will be more a shamanic and neo-pagan movement than something etherically spiritual, aka the "New Age." Empty yourself of all that you thought you knew…beginner’s mind is required today, tomorrow, and for the next millennia.
I recommend more a return to miracle-mindedness. “A miracle is something that looks impossible, but happens anyway.” That little gem was delivered by a character named Griffin (picture above) in the film “Men in Black 3”. I like it a lot! What we may be on the threshold of discovering is how we can integrate the practical and the magical, the pragmatic and the shamanic. It certainly sounds and looks a whole lot more sustainable and fun than the old model!
Let the veil fall from your eyes, or rip it away, and behold yourself new and renewed. You will see things that have been hidden, that have tranced you out, or numbed you from your true identity. Allow the illusions to crumble, let the child within heal, and may your warrior/lover arise from the ashes of the old order. It’s a New Moon…it’s a new day…it’s a new world, if you want it.
