Just a scant 4 or 5 years ago the word consent became synonymous with the "#MeToo” movement. Everyone’s consciousness was focused on the scandals around major Hollywood actors and producers who had allegedly preyed on aspiring or established female and male actors alike. Suddenly men were on their back foot once again, surprised and a bit daunted by the onslaught on the male gender in the popular media organs. New workshops, books and a whole new branch of self-help therapies and therapists sprang up to educate us on the various intricacies and nuances of when “no” means no, and “yes” means yes. All the civilized world had a mirror held up to it. The ongoing paedophilia scandals involving the Catholic Church or other religious organizations, including many gurus and yoga teachers, suddenly took on new significance, and in some quarters, shocked followers and devotees of the “woke” communities.
Just about two years ago an alleged pandemic broke out, precipitating measures that few questioned or contested. My caveat here is to not make this article a lightning rod about the pandemic itself, or how it was conducted, but to illustrate what happened in such a short period of time after it was announced that it existed.
When the lockdowns, mandatory mask and social distancing measures were first imposed, dissent was virtually non-existent. We all happily and tacitly agreed and went along with these measures, basically because we were all scared out of our wits, and because our mammalian bonding instincts were being subtly manipulated. The clarion call was to do all we could to protect grandma and the kids. All seemed to be working together to ‘flatten the curve”, as the worst seemed to be over. By the autumn of 2020, the possibility ofreturning to normal looked feasible. Then, it took a downward turn in the last quarter. By this time, most had heard of the new generation vaccines that were due to be rolled out at the end of the year and in early 2021. The governments, the medical experts and the media all seemed to be joined in lockstep to implement “Operation Warp Speed” and vaccinate the entire planet.
No one seemed to mind that this plan of mandatory inoculations was somehow out of bounds or seemed to violate anyone’s freedom of choice. The idea of medical passports was even dismissed by government officials as something that wasn’t even being considered. That was all about to change by mid-year of 2021. By early 2022 one western European nation had made it a law that all its citizens had to receive this medical intervention, and many other countries used it as a condition of travel (medical passports) or to access social services and healthcare. Oddly, the efficacy of those interventions is now under suspicion and in some cases, litigation. There are cracks appearing on many walls as more and more souls refuse to comply or give consent to any intervention into their bodies without, you guessed it, their consent.
Let’s go back in time a bit further…like a few decades. When the Internet appeared we all were fascinated with it’s potential to bring humanity together in harmony and cooperation, and how education and information processing would be transformed. The first mass produced wireless technologies would follow on soon. On the health risk/benefit side, the vaunted FCC (Federal Communications Commission) in the United States cited studies made during the late 1980’s and early 1990’s that wireless devices were benign and poised zero threat to our health. Of course, they based their studies on those ancient Motorola handsets the size of bricks that some businessmen had in their cars. Little did we dream of things like the iPhone, Amazon, or online shopping. Little did we imagine what effect all of it would have on human consciousness or behaviours.
Now we see what it has wrought in many parts of our societies.
Like zombies in some dystopian science fiction film, people everywhere are walking, working, resting, and traveling around tethered to their smartphones and tablets. Hardly anyone looks up anymore. Hardly anyone notices how much they are living in their heads. We are being steadily transformed into digitally defined mental plane that is increasing our being out of touch with our bodies, our feelings, and emotions, and mostly inured to Nature Herself. Was this planned or accidental? Maybe both? It most certainly has been taken advantage of and leveraged by the folks in Silicon Valley and elsewhere. We cannot ignore this any longer. The very idea of human beings even needing a soul, or a spiritual reference point is being called into question. Witness this in the video I link here: https://youtu.be/NV0CtZga7qM
So, we come full circle to the issue of consent. Giving permission for anything that directly affects your life, or those whose lives are meaningful and close to you, seems now to be superfluous. Are all expected to just quietly acquiesce and cede their consent to whatever the “experts” deem is good for us and with no questions asked. Have we, in such a short space of time and memory, become too docile and/or inept to think or look after ourselves?
I do not think for one moment that free will and consent isn’t important to you, or you wouldn’t be reading this, or asking questions about what is going on in our world, or actively participating in helping to heal yourself and others, or doing community building, or whatever it is your spirit directs you to be and do. We will only have a say in the future we want to face if we use our power of yes and no consciously and effectively. Otherwise, we tacitly agree to what others wish us to be or do, and our lives become theirs by default.
This decade is a crucial period of letting go of what no longer does or can serve us spiritually and materially. As such, the transit of Pluto in late Capricorn, and his ingress into the sign of Aquarius next year, is an emphatic and difficult call to die to an old way of being, and to an old world dying, and choosing a path that ensures not just mutual survivability, but mutual peace, prosperity, and happiness. We must not rely on tech, or others, to do this for us, or save us. Nor should we give them consent to do so. If anything is a “tell” about the past two years, then bear witness to how many times opposing viewpoints to the dominant narrative have been forcibly silenced, de-platformed, derided, or even attacked. Just for asking questions, or having an opinion? In a supposed democracy that is a big “tell”.
What you give consent to matters. What you give permission to be in your life is important. It’s not about having total control over everything in your life, no one can achieve that. We need to be remembering ways in which we can live and work harmoniously with the Tao, with the flow of Life. You cannot do that while dancing to another’s tune. Anything imposed on you without consent is a form of violence, and this world has a long history of enforcing rules and laws through intimidation, various types of coercion or blackmail, and if all else fails, by force.
You are here on this world by your own choice, your own consent, your own cooperation with your soul. No matter what is happening in the wider world, and there is much that demands our focus and attention, try to always come back to what you have in your power to do in this moment, right now, to enjoy your life, your blessings, and your opportunities for joy and peace.
Your humanity depends on this. Your soul dreams about it.
Blessings on your journey,

On the next episode of "Revealing the Mysteries" which
airs this coming Sunday, March 13th, 2022
Synopsis: What's been happening? Pluto at 27 Capricorn. Although this episode won't be Astro-Issue heavy, it is worth mentioning the main catalyst or agent provocateur, but the main thing is how do you manage all the rapid firing crises arising, one after another. Staying calm is only one piece of the equation but staying calm and simply observing doesn't really alter the intensity of all that is unfolding. Perhaps that is because our over-exposure to information (propaganda) delivered through a disembodied medium like digital makes it too easy to simply disengage from our emotions, or to have our emotions easily manipulated to support one thing, and to denounce or renounce another. Maybe Russia's war is a distraction, or it may just be part of the End Game long planned to enslave human consciousness. In any case, how we deal with it all, and what how respond is ultra-important. Simply having some peace of mind and a feeling that it will all work out somehow would be welcome. Let's explore and search for solutions together. Peace, over and out.

STATE OF THE PLANET UPDATE
for September 24th, 2021
by Isaac George
The Full Moon in Pisces on Tuesday was quite expansive, and important in many ways. I am sure everyone experiences things like astrological transits and the natural cycles in their own unique manner. It is a fact of our times that we are also having to cope with multiple sources of energy and non-verbal (and sometimes verbal!) information from a lot of different directions. How we process and interpret this incoming info is also very personal. It seems ever increasingly important to limit or manage our exposure to certain ideas, energies, and sometimes people too. This can be daunting.
Our etheric form and energy field inform and support our physicality, and in turn our bodies respond to every ripple, every vibration in the web of the mass consciousness we share with all other people, and yes, all life forms and the Planet's consciousness as well! This can be exhausting at times.
The icing on the cake was the Autumnal Equinox, which occurred yesterday. Nice that the Sun has moved into the sign of Libra, the energy or relating and love. But there were some itchy aspects that we may also be aware of on some level or another.
We are always at choice to say, "I must stop now, I must have space to rest". Resting is a revolutionary act these days. It is a silent but effective form of quiet rebellion against the hustle culture that modern capitalist (and socialist) societies now expect of all of us. Taking the space we need to recoup, reassess, and re-create will never be as important as it is right now. In fact, if my guidance and perception hold true, we will very much need that refuge of a calm oasis of light, tranquillity and peace over the next six or seven months.
So be gentle with yourself. Anchor to that Home within yourself often and stay in your body, and close to Nature's rhythms and whispers.
The very next item on the astrological menu will be Mercury turning retrograde in the sign of Libra next Monday. Taking the usual Mercury Retrograde precautions is always recommended: back up data on all electronic devices (including smartphones...especially smartphones), don't make any decisions requiring your signature (contracts, wills, financial instruments, etc.), postpone travel plans, or if they're already in place, just expect detours and delays. You'll keep your cool better that way!
This Mercury Retrograde is in an energy that governs how we relate to one another, especially in couples. The retrograde may be saying to us, evaluate your relationship with your bestie, your partner, with yourself even! Is it working or not? If not working, go within and find out why first, then discuss it with the person in question.
Some relationships and friendships may have run their course and need to be let go of. Others can get a new lease on life or change direction. Lovers may become friends, or vice versa! In all these situations, the bigger messages may be "where do I acquiesce too much. Are we in a co-dependent relationship?
That's all I will say for now and wish you all the best during the last seven days of September. Most of what I'd like to say about the transits for the rest of September and going forward will be on my upcoming "Revealing the Mysteries" radio show this Sunday (see details below). Hope you can tune in or catch the replay here.
Peace, and blessings on your journey,
As always, I am at your service as a mentor, and Astro-Therapist to assist you in understanding your position in the Big Story of Life and letting go of the little story.

how Synopsis: We’re in the wake of last Tuesday’s power packed Full Moon in Pisces, and we’ve just sailed past the Autumnal Equinox as well. This Equinox is packed with all sorts of harbingers for the next six months, especially for October. Now, astrology cannot predict the future with any high degree of accuracy, but it can be a useful tool to describe the possibilities and probabilities ahead.
That said, I advise and suggest you remember that astrology, like the Tarot, channellings, the I Ching, or other divinatory practices, is only an opinion. We cannot know Truth with a capital “T” in the language of astrology or anything else, so if what you hear doesn’t float your boat, then chuck it out the window. Now, THAT said, I will be offering you my perspective of what’s likely afoot until February, but like a map, we won’t know the territory or what it’s like till we get there. Tune in for a fascinating gaze into my crystal ball, and please fasten your seat belts and wear a helmet. Just kidding!
All shows air at 6:30pm BST, 1:30pm EDT, and 10:30pm PDT.

“Let the Healing Begin”
~By Isaac George
"The body is everywhere assaulted by all of our new media, a state which has resulted in deep disorientation of intellect and destabilization of culture throughout the world. In the age of disembodied communication, the meaning and significance and experience of the body is utterly transformed and distorted.” - Eric McLuhan
“So much of the sickness is in our heads” – Eric Clapton
Presence, Bliss, Tranquillity. They are qualities of experience and states of being to be sure, but they do not arise only in the ethereal planes of awareness. They can exist while we are in embodiment as well. Carrying on from last week’s theme about our letting go, this coming weekend, and the early part of next week will afford us ample opportunities for accessing more of our divinity, while in our embodiment. This Monday-Tuesday, we get a breather, a blessing…a Full Moon in the expansion and dreamy sign of Pisces. Already we’re experiencing the forerunners. Strange or magical dreams and night-time dramas, restless sleep and bouts of feeling lethargic and tired, and a sense that one is walking in a fog bank. It will be helpful to reflect on these myriad states we’re entering before the exact moment of the Full Moon. That occurs at 00:54am British Summer Time. Subtract 5 hours for America’s East Coast, and 8 hours for the West. Hence why this lunation crosses over a day/night boundary.
This space will be super important to take advantage of, as the planetary and energetic aspects that unfold shortly. Next week there are some more intense energies afoot…mostly from Thursday onwards. We get a few little breaks in the action, until Mercury turns retrograde in Libra on September 27th. The real action will begin on October 1st, and reign through the whole month. But I get ahead of myself.
I inserted the quote from Marshall McLuhan’s son Eric as a reminder of why this Full Moon is so different than our abnormal digitized state of perception on the planet. This is an opportunity to connect or reconnect more deeply with our divine spark within. Whether you refer to it as your Higher Self or something else does not matter so much. You and that which is eternal are always together, always equals, and share a common awareness. No separation whatsoever! But in today’s world we may feel very hard-pressed to feel and know that Presence on a moment-to-moment basis. Now is a good time to re-establish the Foundation of your Being in the ways you feel drawn to do so.
The Eric Clapton quote is from the interview he did about his adverse injuries after having had the AZ jabs and having Covid anxiety prior to his accepting the jabs and after. Very honest and courageous man, and an amazing musician whom I’ve followed since 1966. I include it here to illustrate the (scientifically verified) fact of how we can be made to feel ill from just our thoughts and/or emotions, or from taking in toxic ideas from outside ourselves. This is about more than being a hypochondriac. One type of this condition is called psychogenic illness, and it can spread to millions of people in a matter of days or weeks...as we have seen.
With Sun in Virgo and Moon in Pisces, the themes of healing arise, especially emotional and psychic pains or wounds. Allow your feelings to flow and don’t hold anything back or judge them, no matter how messy or chaotic they might be. It’s part of the healing from releasing we all need…a cleansing. Virgo is all about the body, and about the sacredness and beauty of the divine in human form. Revere your body as such, and it will respond to your healing thoughts. Too much of humanity has forgotten what their bodies are for. I touched on those themes in last week’s blog and in my radio program. If you haven’t had a listen, just click here.
Lastly, I suggest using this time for artistic pursuits, resting, walking in Nature, Qigong, Tai Chi or yoga, meditating, chanting, listening to music (or playing it yourself!). Tuning in to the deeper knowing that is you is the key. If you are looking for information or answers outside of yourself (Sun-Virgo), okay. But come back into yourself and let your heart and spirit discover what is right for you.
For more detail about the entire astrology for this Full Moon, the rest of September and a preview of early October, just tune in to my upcoming show this Sunday. Details can be found below.

Blessings on your journey,
Show Synopsis: When the going gets tough, when the pressure is on, and there’s no relief in sight, what do you do? We are living in the End Times as it were and confronted daily with many real or imagined existential threats. Never in my life did I ever expect to live through a period like this, and I’ve seen quite a few epic things in my journey. Nonetheless, we don’t have to shoulder everything alone or in the isolation between our ears. It is essential to take a step back in inwards to check ourselves when we have a questions and doubts, like “what is this all for, and why?” I hear you, and so does the infinite heart of divine within us all.
This episode will key on the Full Moon in Pisces that takes place next Monday, September 20th, 2021 as a fulcrum for renewing our divine connection within, and without. Hope you can tune and spend an hour of comfort, reassurance and peace with me.
All shows air at 6:30pm BST, 1:30pm EDT, and 10:30pm PDT.
