The other day, someone on social media shouted out on a post “I think the World 🌍 has gone mad!” I responded, and she asked if I could lend any insights as to why.
Okay, so here…we…go.
Yes, there are some very powerful astrological events underway. Perhaps some of you aren’t followers or even believers in astrology. Doesn’t matter. Like oxygen and respiration some things work without you having to believe in them. Nonetheless, it is this or that thing that is giving some of us, or even a lot of us, a strong feeling that things are becoming very crazy and unhinged. Here’s the thing…
It’s a perfect storm of change.
A number of factors are all converging at the same time on Planet Earth, and not all of them are visible to our senses. It’s like the spreading of the Beer Virus…ubiquitous, unrelenting and without the respecting of persons in general. No one is totally immune to these much-needed changes, and if we stay observant and honest with ourselves, we can easily see there’s been something quite wrong about our “System” on this planet for a long, long time.
“Welcome, my son, Welcome to the machine...
What did you dream? It's alright,
we told you what to dream” - Pink Floyd
When a system becomes calcified, stratified, unworkable, and built upon a false premise and enforced by top-down hierarchy, you can bet your bottom dollar that the beneficial spiritual forces that we will call here the ‘Prime Creator(s)’ are facilitating the end of times as we have known them. This doesn’t imply that your personal choices (free will?) don’t play a part. They certainly can and do.
However, what if your choices have been engineered, nudged, and otherwise co-opted without your knowledge or consent? Then what kind of choice is that anyway? Since 9/11 and the rise of the Internet as marketplace and social influencer, we’ve been herded and groomed into beliefs and behaviours that in previous epochs we’d have never signed up for. You and I got hypnotized and bamboozled by the Five Horseman of the Apocalypse…Google, Facebook, Apple, Amazon and Microsoft. We thought the Silicon Gods would be the new Epoch, the New Age. Well, that New Age has metastasized into something that no one originally imagined. Welcome to The [Machine] Digital Age.
The old outworn Industrial Age is coughing and sputtering to a collapse of its own making. Indeed, that alone could make a huge impact in reducing human economic activity and the associated carbon emissions and general planet-trashing we’ve had a hand in since the 1870’s. And, we’re just at the cusp of this process. The political, religious, financial and social strata is being undermined from two fronts. The demise of the old power structures, and the rise of surveillance capitalism as self-proclaimed arbiter of our future. One problem above all others hasn’t even been seen though. The new capitalism is very dependent on fossil fuels…and your cooperation. It reigns supreme for the time being, but we are in danger if we think that the Internet of Things and 5G is the way forward. It’s patently not.
Hence the conflict between the two systems and ideologies are creating mass havoc and related stress. The Coronavirus, the hackneyed populism in many major governments, the reduction by stealth of individual rights or initiative, the rise of the entrepreneur (as the Silicon Gods have deemed worthy) all threaten our lives and or sanity. Mostly, things seem insane to many of us now because they ARE insane. Our inner knowing, or souls, or sovereign spiritual and human instincts recoil at the hubris, the pressure to survive, and the control paradigm of constant surveillance. Life, as imagined by these new forces, is to be reduced to a digital marketplace in which your behavioral surplus is harvested and then used against you to predict your next need, your next want, your next purchase. A worldwide culture insulated in certainty and predictability. A Life without Risk. The Black Mirror of Narcissism and Control is at the heart of all this. Is it any wonder that we feel that we are losing touch with Reality? We are…that’s the point.
I would like to mention something that is related to the above paragraph. The New Age self-help industry has contributed a great deal to a type of spiritual narcissism. While self-examination, healing traumas and the inward journey are important, and many were so convinced that doing so would catalyse a big Shift, it hasn't materialized outwardly. Objectively speaking it has only served as a misdirection from the essential collective focus that is required to address all apparent threats to the well-being of all beings, of all Life. Many have become lost in the suffering of the self, the spiritualizing the ego and bypassing. Without a coming together in the realm of the real, we will remain fragmented whilst proclaiming that “we’re all connected”.
Now all of this isn’t a hopeless scenario by any means. However, unless you expand your consciousness and grasp that what is occurring is not just because of human beings, but it is also fueled by invisible influences as well, one cannot get a grip on the multidimensional reasons for what the nuttiness is about. After all, if you can believe in nature spirits and angels, why not anything that may be hostile to humanity (and the planet)?
I’m not referring to space aliens invading the planet like in the Hollywood fiction of ‘Independence Day’. I am referring to what the ancient mystery schools taught about mind parasites, or Archons. These aren’t boogie men, and even though they are an artificial or synthetic life form, they are actually related to us in a weird sort of way…which is one of the reasons why humans become drawn to and lost in machines and technology.
The Native American culture called them “wetiko”. In Central and South American shamanic traditions they are referred to as the “flyers” or simply “the Watchers”. Sounds very Sci-Fi I know. But really, sometimes people don’t behave like human beings for more reasons than they just had the misfortune of having a crappy childhood. However, I do not advocate giving away your power to this revelation, or feeling like a victim in any way. We are responsible for our own mistakes, and for correcting them as best we can. That said, consider the possibility that our miscues can be exploited into something so fearful and debilitating that one can lose sight of all reason, especially the reasons for even continuing to live. I mention this because of the growing epidemic of suicide among young people since the advent of social media and smart devices. Mistakes that go uncorrected become evil by nature.
Whatever you engage with, becomes part of you. Conversely, what you choose to not engage with cannot influence or control you. The rabbit hole goes deep…so very deep, so it is in our own best interest and for the good of all that we do not allow the world’s craziness to become our own. Nor can we afford to become despondent or complacent or bury our heads in the sand.
There are numerous tips that I offer to assist my clients to reverse the seduction of tech, false pictures of reality, and misplaced belief. First is faith. Faith that there is an inherent benevolence in Spirit, or Goddess or the Universal. From my experience, Spirit never intended for us to live in this world of travail, conflict and death. The roots about how it got that way are super relevant, but those teachings are part of the larger body of my own mystery school which I will offering this year online and in live group settings.
Suffice it to say that what we see around us is not what was intended…or hoped for us originally. Nonetheless we are being called upon to figure it out, free ourselves and change our direction. Make no mistake…no one can do this completely in isolation or on their own. There’s loads of help for anyone that can say that they don’t know what to do and need divine guidance. The Universe responds to ASKING. Make that your second priority after Faith…just ask.
In closing I would like to say that there’s always hope. The hope I speak of is that we remind ourselves over and over again that there is a spark of the Divine that lives inside of us, and which can always help once we surrender our egoic pride. We are designed as co-Creators, original innovators, and like the wind and stars, we go ever on, and on, and on.
This planet is our Home in the Cosmos, and She is our Mother, and the co-Creator of our species and all the life we see around us. For this hope for a peaceful and abundant future to become a reality, we are all being called to shed many skins, and to grow at a pace our forbearers would never have conceived of.
Never ever give up. We are magical and made to rise again and again. With that I encourage you to stop pretending that you cannot do this or that, or be the greatest version of the grandest vision of Who You Are. That last bit is from the spiritual pioneer and author Neale Donald Walsch, and it’s a relevant now as it was when it graced the pages of his first book, Conversations with God.
I’ll be back with more revelations and soul-utions in the near future. Thanks for being here, and blessings on your journey.

On that Tuesday morning 18 years I was still half awake on the West Coast when the phone rang. A friend on the Eastern seaboard let us know what was happening in New York City, and we got the television turned on just before the South Tower collapsed. However, even as my partner at the time was relaying what our friend was telling her over the phone, a small voice inside me whispered, “don’t panic, its all a setup.” I didn’t question that, and my whole body resonated with the truth that was implicit in it. What unfolded during that day, and the days and weeks and years since, has only reinforced that knowing – that it has all been a setup. I’ll get back to that concept in a minute.
Probably like you, I’ve never felt like I was from “here”. As a young child, I’d look up at the stars and think, “That’s home. Why am I here then?” I perceive that some of us certainly have lineages to other races and worlds out there, but our intrinsic story of how human beings came to be, and our part in that story, has been well hidden from us…on purpose. I’ve come to understand that when we long to go Home, it is a clue to a bonding trauma that our souls remember from a time deeply burned into our eternal memory banks. It is symbolic of our false belief in separation from Source Consciousness and Love. This did not come about because of a Fall, but because of a Push. The divine dream for our souls and for humanity was intended to be along a different road, with a different story, than what we have inherited on this Planet.
So we looked to the wisdom of the Ancients for answers, and delved into the old metaphysical texts and traditions, along the teachings from various Adepts and messages from Higher Beings beyond our world. A very few enlightened souls have pointed the way Home, but they have been few…too few.
During my life I’ve witnessed how those of us who are the Seekers have embraced and released many of these methods, traditions, beliefs and doctrines. Some aspects are full of Truth and worth keeping. Some have been proven to be full of hollow promises, and in some cases, vehicles for subtle enslavement or deception.
At the turn of the last Millennium many were strongly suspecting that a mass awakening would occur, and much on this world would be healed and a new era of love, compassion, cooperation and prosperity would envelope us. The environment would be respected…and repaired. Altruism would replace capitalism. This mass awakening would render the Old Order of politics and religions obsolete, creating the fertile ground for a universality of spiritual paths in which all were respected as roads that lead homeward. Then, the stolen election of 2000, followed by 9/11 happened. We went into collective shock.
In the run up to the Iraq War in early 2003, some of us joined with millions of regular people to voice our opposition to this opportunistic and dangerous war, only to be ignored by those we elected and trusted. From then until now, we continue to experience one shockwave after another…and it doesn’t seem to be letting up or getting better, no matter what individual efforts towards further spiritual growth and illumination we make. The reason for this does not lie in some fault in ourselves.
We hardly created the causes that have created the conditions in which we now find ourselves. However, if we continue to discover, embody and act from the place of the power of Love within us, we can affect the direction, change the course, make a huge difference. The time is short for this to occur. The acceleration of climatic change and ecological decay is obvious. What is also obvious is how the decay is now apparent system wide. All political surety around democracy is severely damaged, make everyone vulnerable to those who value power and greed above all else. The financial and monetary systems are corrupt, based on debt and fraud. The air isn’t fit to breath, the water fit to drink (and it’s under threat), and the food isn’t fit to eat. Just to survive, many are forced to ignore the larger issues and strive to make it from payday to payday in order to feed themselves and their families. Can anyone look around and think that this is what God-Goddess desires for human beings?
Our choice is obvious. Evolve or perish as a species, as Nature and the planet press the reset button and usher in a new eon that will not include humans and many other lifeforms. It’s happened before…five times.
Back to the “setup.” To be fully conscious and awake as a human being, to be a Spirit and not a ghost, we need to recognize that within us dwells the utmost ability to imagine and actualize a different outcome, and a different world. Not just for you and me, but for others, and those younger generations that are growing up even now. I may not see its fruition, but I will not stop trying and working to bring it about.
When all looks hopeless, it’s time to remember what faith looks and feels like. It’s time to surrender to that greater Power within us that gave us Life, and the power to imagine anything. It’s the power that creates Life, from the seed to the towering oak…almost effortlessly. The story can be different, but we first must attend to where we are holding onto beliefs, opinions, attachments or sacred cows that no longer serve. To that end, we can and must make the break from the world that we grew up in. That needs to happen in order that we do not repeat the errors of the past. The looping game stops with us, or we all stop.
But first, we will have to pass through the Eye of the Needle.
The next 18 months or so are very critical for all of us and the Earth. It should be a time in which we are willing to surrender and admit that none of us, individually or collectively, has all the answers to the big issues, or our own best good. Events in the outer reality are crystallizing towards a crescendo of crises unprecedented in the collective history of the planet. Astrological markers like the Pluto and Saturn in Capricorn contacts that started this year, will especially make a big noise during the first 5 months of 2020. This will test many. I don’t say this to scare everyone, but to bring awareness and channel powerful solutions both personally and collectively.
I understand perfectly if you’ve been feeling overwhelmed by all this. May I suggest trying what you haven’t tried before? If those inherited rituals, cultural indoctrinations, or the beliefs that you were told would make you enlightened aren’t working any longer, and you’re doing them out of habit, then perhaps you could try to follow your own wisdom in your heart. Let go of the rules and become a law unto yourself. We were designed in the image of Nature, or the Feminine spirit that dwells within Nature if you will. All Nature’s creatures know their nature and express it without censoring. They all value freedom above all else.
When we let go (heal) our inherited “stuff”, then our nature can shine through, and we can know a freedom no society or government can guarantee to us. The ego and all its fears and worries will gravitate to its rightful position as an instrument of the Soul’s evolution, and Spirit and Heart will regain the throne of the Self - knowing itself as itself and yet One with All That Is. This is the core of the work of transformation. To become fully human…a human embodying the Divine Dream. Then will we know Heaven on Earth.

“Slow down, you move to fast. You’ve got to make the moment last.” – Simon & Garfunkel
“If we valued food and cheer and song above hoarded gold, it would be a merrier world.” – JRR Tolkien
“Look at Nature! All Nature loafs, while Man alone works for a living.” – Morton Tolboll
When we really tune into our experience of this world right now, and think back one, three, or even 10 years ago, would you say you are more content and satisfied, or less? Does everything make more sense to you, or less? Most importantly, do you have more time to spend enjoying the things that Life offers, or less? Even though everything is abstractly in the “now”, having enough time is, ironically, our most precious resource.
As you reflect on your own answers, I hope it turns out that you are more content, feel like more things are clearer to you, and that you are enjoying a load of time to be with your family, friends, and favorite pursuits. Congratulations, for you are part of a rare and possibly shrinking percentile of the population. If you are not experiencing this expanded state of life, then perhaps you’ll resonate with my call for the Slow Life.
My own perceptions about why it is that there is so much pressure, stress and anxiousness is as multidimensional as the causes themselves. Just some of the current causes are as follows:
Many people in our developed information-based societies are dancing as fast as possible to maintain their standard of living. A good deal more are staying just ahead of losing their livelihood, their income, or their home. Debt and debt service are at record highs. A good many sacrifice warmth and comfort just to be able to put food on the table for themselves and their families. The world is too busy trying to stave off collapse to notice that it’s eating up a massive amount of their attention, resources, and most importantly, time.
Since you’re reading this, I can safely assume that you are deeply interested in spirituality, meditation, transformation, positive perspectives and creating a better world for yourself and everyone else too. Choosing peace, and living a peaceful life is also one of your priorities. However, the world is far from being a peaceful place…currently anyway. Struggle, anxiety, depression and adrenal fatigue are a very real experience for many. Desperation and starvation are something that too many children and their parents are enduring in places like Syria and Yemen. We’d all like to do something more, to contribute more, to help more, but we ourselves are often also just too busy with our dreams, our careers, and the needs of others close to us to be able to do much more than we are already doing.
If everything in your life is fantastic, free, easy and full of joy, then I congratulate you heartily! But if you’re feeling doubt or fear what the future may hold or are even just too tired to care much at all, then I’d like to invite you to really take a long look at your world, your experience and begin to question the stories of how the world works. It is vitally important to understand where we are first, before creating any possible solutions.
In order to do this, you’re going to have to create a slower life. You can’t see or hear anything properly if it’s whizzing by too quickly! Start by carving out 10-15 minutes a day…to do nothing that relates to your work or list of responsibilities. I don’t even want to suggest to you that you meditate, but you could “do” that!
Get into a quieter space. Bedroom? Close the door, turn off the phone. You could pick something that you enjoy doing…thoroughly, like sewing, or cooking, or reading. Better yet, just sit. Eyes open or eyes closed. Sit…quietly. Listen to your breath, your heart. Watch your mind churn…and keep following your own breath. Focus on a single object in front of you if that helps…and really gaze at it effortlessly.
If you find you’re getting annoyed with nothing to do, or with abject silence, then welcome to the club. You’re on the verge of detecting where we are constantly up against a program of distraction from what really matters, which is connection to Source, your own soul and body well-being. Source, God, Goddess, Love, or whatever name you choose to call it, is the Infinite Divine wellspring of everything there is, and everything that isn’t. You didn’t create yourself, and you are alive and breathing through the agency of this Source, and you cannot alter that fact. Pretty humbling stuff, if you ask me. Consciousness and awakening are the ultimate impulse of the Life-Love energy that pulses throughout all that is. Can you just rest in that presence for even 10 minutes? Give it a try. Oh, and you don’t need any intermediary for this…no angels, no masters, no guides. Just you and You. No problem!
After this little experiment, write down what you experienced and what you didn’t experience. It’s a merely a reflective exercise, without a right or wrong to it. Ideally, it can bring you into a place of real pleasurable sensations…a sense of calmness and okay-ness. At least that’s the idea and ideal.
Since we are in the season of giving, I’d suggest that one of the big things you can begin to express with whatever you come away with from these slow life moments is compassion. To give kindness and compassion to whomever you encounter over the last few weeks of 2018 will have great effect. It’s an equalizer, and the one something that we all are needing more of is love and a sense of belonging…the power of communing and community. The best currency, and in my opinion only currency is Love. If you give a donation, let it be wrapped in the felt presence of deliberate and premeditated love. Slow down, and ask the homeless person if they are okay, or if you make the time, ask them to share a bit about themselves. You may get quite an illuminating education and blessing in the process. The money part isn’t the main gift. It’s the gift of time you give to another…a space that is priceless when so many just rush on by, averting their eyes, and caught up in their personal troubles and drama.
Back in a few days with the next segment on The Slow Life. The astrology of Chiron now direct in Pisces is priming us for major healing opportunities on many levels, so relax into the possibilities of what that might engender for yourself.
Blessings on your journey,

“Stars impel, they do not compel.” – Chaldean Astrology
Being human these days is almost becoming a revolutionary act. The Internet and social media always beckon, our devices and faith in technology tends to obscure the significance of our own biological landscape, and our quasi-divine origins. Enlightenment won’t be found anytime soon in a smartphone, or another meme.
From the astrological perspective, the Show Just Goes On…and on and on. Can’t stop it, or slow it down. If you try, it might just run you over. Tomorrow’s another Full Moon, but it’s more than that. The involved planets and the archetypes are mirroring our predicament, and sheds a big light on some possible solutions. As individuals and as a species our challenges are numerous and obvious. We ignore climate change, water scarcity, and environmental damage and destruction at our own risk. The potential for rapid personal growth and understanding are there too, but it most certainly is tempered by the sobering fact that everything and everyone has an influence on the whole…and vice versa.
The Full Moon is in Taurus and conjoined in the sky with the planet of Love and the Feminine = Venus. She’s in Scorpio and retrograded (turning focus inwards and investigative). Emotions will run high and deep right up to the Full Moon slated to occur at 3:49pm British Summer Time, and 6:49am Pacific Daylight Time. After the zenith of totality is past, the pressure cooker of the past two weeks will begin to lessen.
But wait, there’s more! (see chart below)
Venus is opposed by another retrograde powerhouse – Uranus in Taurus. Since Uranus entered the sign of the Bull in mid-May, he’s been stirring up the fires under the surface, resulting in major earthquakes, volcanic eruptions, climate events, and economic ones too. With it opposing Venus and the Moon, and conjunct the Sun at 1 degree of Scorpio, anything goes. It could trigger a surprise, a blessing, or a realization. Loving the Earth and the Natural World may become a sudden epiphany for some. Another manifestation might be a big correction in stock markets, or some ugly confrontation or dirty secret coming to light about the economy, politics, or the environment that may shock or surprise us.
Lastly the Full Moon and Uranus-Venus oppositions are squaring the Nodes of the Moon in Leo and Aquarius. This will activate the need to focus intensely on what is happening in the fullness of NOW! It is a lens through which we see the mistakes of the past and the way to move forwards into the future. With the South Node in Aquarius, it will be about revealing our deep memories of failed Utopian civilizations like Atlantis or Lemuria, and all the wounding and regret they engendered. With the North Node in Leo, it will be a last chance review about how courage, especially spiritual courage centered in the heart, will be the primary way to move forwards with the work there is to do in front of us.
The Nodes will change signs soon too…and move into Cancer and Capricorn in mid-November.
On a personal level relationships both past and current are lit up. So are the core issues karmic and otherwise that are related to our relationships, especially mother-father ones, and archetypal ones (God the Father?) All relating is undergoing pressures to evolve too, and Pluto (Scorpio) is certainly at play here with the Sun and Venus in that sign now.
In summary, no single celestial event has the power to change us. Only we have that within. With the calculations and archetypes involved, my take is that there is a clear message for tomorrow about how we are called to value our humanity more, to see it as truly divine and superior to our technologies. Our predilections, our foibles, even our most disastrous beliefs and mistakes, can’t obscure the potential for love, joy, humour and kindness that we are capable of. Our bodies are more than temples, and our lives are more than dust. We are stardust, and mud, and emotions. We are human beings. We belong here, and we are being called to rise to the challenge of creating a new world from the ashes of the old.

You are not a machine.
Looking around these days, whether its in my Inbox, on my social media feeds, or listening to the chatter I pick up on in cafes, I am hearing and seeing loads of messages about becoming more proficient, productive and efficient in your career, workplace, home space and lifetstyle. A near constant litany of ways to improve this, hack that, and strategies for achieving more are even pervasive (as I see it) than in recent memory. In fact, they are becoming just as annoying as pop-up ads. Juxtaposed against this stream of consciousness (am I being too kind here?) are another set of messages warning us about the dysfunctional nature of our lifestyle choices, and how they are increasing our depression, affecting our health, and ultimately calling into question the whole basis of our way of life. Day to day living is becoming a search for the next dopamine fix when you check your smartphone.
Which messages are you listening to?
It seems as if the mindfulness movement has been hijacked to serve our need for ever more security, stuff and to secure some arbitrary ideal of what the “perfect live” looks like. Are we using the tools of metaphysics and spirituality as they were originally designed, or have we co-opted them for our personal ego agendas and possible gain? The wellness industry is a kind of oxymoron really, another adjunct or app to help us to continually cope and produce. However, what happens when you really slow down, and take a closer look, and reflect? The chasing is never-ending. The finding ever more elusive.
Is it all making you happier, or just more miserable than ever?
Worry, anxiety and depression, along with obesity, drug and alcohol addiction, and gender and racial abuses is on the rise. So are authoritarian right-wing politicians and governments. We’re behaving like chronically unfulfilled, hungry ghosts searching for a material or spiritual Nirvana. Perhaps further away from that goal than we'd care to admit. Ultimately, we must ask ourselves, what is it all for, and what is the point?
Whether we like it or not, we are also connected to every other living thing on this world, and we all are having a shared experience. (That's an even a deeper rabbit hole I could take this down, but that’s for another time.) If you are wondering what the most graceful and sensible next steps for reducing or eliminating fear, stress and anxiety in your life, then here is what I’ve found works for me, and for many of those whom I call my clients and friends.
