STATE OF THE PLANET UPDATE
February 16th, 2022
I know I blitzed you with a ton of information and perspectives in my last newsletter a week ago, so there’s not much I can add to the detail around the USA Pluto Return coming up this Sunday, or much else that is of an astrological nature. You, my Dear Reader, are probably breathing a sigh of relief. Good.
I use to compose my articles the day after a night of unusual dreams. Downloads as it were. That hasn’t happened in a long time, the leftover impressions from the dreamtime spilling over into a blog, but it happened this morning in the early hours. I received a message, or impressions, about what the needed to be most said through me in this blog.
No matter what is or isn’t happening in the world right now, you and I and all of Creation is loved beyond belief. No matter what is or isn’t happening in your life right now, you are loved beyond belief. No matter what will happen or won’t happen, it does not matter…we are loved beyond belief. No matter what, we are that Love, and we emerged from that Love by choice-desire-curiosity.
None of us are an “accident” of the Universe, nor are you and I here because of some whim of The Fates. We have purpose in our Be-ing…even when we don’t feel like we’re fulfilling our believed or adopted purpose. Sometimes our egos hijack our purpose, or distort it, or diminish it. The rock-solid truth you can always rely on is that, in the end, the truth if this: you are Love/Loved beyond belief.
And no matter who you are, and even though you may feel alone at times, no one is alone…ever.
Now some of what I relate here will already be familiar to most of you, and you’ve heard it all before. If so, that’s great! However, I must honestly say that almost everyone I speak with these days is dealing with something challenging. The continuing agenda of separating humanity into two classes of people still ripples throughout the collective experience. We all know this is instinctively “wrong” but most figure there’s nothing one can do about it. Perhaps we are so wrapped up on keeping up with our own life and it’s complexities, focusing only on our own personal triumphs or tragedies. Nonetheless, this divisiveness is useful, in one sense. It awakens us to our own inner duplicities or divisions and can help us realize that this artifice we call our “civilization” or “culture” is unsustainable and running in place to fit into its imposed agenda is a zero-sum game.
Existentially speaking, it is all unsustainable. Fearing the unknown, we cling to the past masquerading as the present and hope that we’ll get to the “new normal” somehow. What I didn’t see or understand until late last week is how much of what we call “our experience” is imposed on our lives without our consent, so much so that the plans we make, the dreams we hold about what we want in our own soul’s experience takes a back seat within this “matrix” of sorts.
Is God/Goddess doing that? Well, trick question. Since we are inextricably part of God/Goddess, I reckon we all bear some responsibility, as we allow whatever this is to continue. Some of us are acquiescing to the illusion and some are going “what a minute…that doesn’t feel right or good to me!” Remember, no matter what’s happening, somehow and at some point in the future it will all work out for the best. You are always at choice in what you will or will not participate with. With what has happened and is happening, you have a choice in how you relate to it, and what you will or will not allow to continue in your experience.
We are infinite and eternal. Nothing is imposed without some level of tacit permission given…by you or me. Even if we don’t want this or that challenge in our lives to be occurring, it is there for a reason. Otherwise, it wouldn’t be there! Karmic or not, it is what it is. What is unfolding, including the so-called darkness and chaos, is part of the awakening/remembering/maturing process, and we are sharing in all of it.
We set up the tenpins so we can knock them down. The Universe suggests that we just don’t make a habit out of it. Then it turns into what we call “our karma”. Unconscious repetition isn’t evolution! Through it all we are still Love/Loved beyond belief.
The atmosphere is filling up with more uncertainties, chugging along in our peripheral vision, and/or intruding into our daily activities. As the old scripture says, “Fear not. Even if the mountains should slide into the sea, I Am with you, always.” That message is Love reminding us again that we…are…never…alone. There is nothing that is inherently within us, that doesn’t want to help.
True mastery doesn’t mean standing as a lone entity in the entirely of Creation, impervious and totally transpersonal. It also includes embracing all that is, and still not falling into forgetfulness of Who We Are beyond all form or circumstance. That is what being “rock solid” is, and that is what Spirit is…rock solid, always there…and everywhere. No judging, no punishments, no force or coercion, no dogma, or rules. Just Love, being Love.
Rock solid baby!

On the next episode of "Revealing the Mysteries" which
airs this coming Sunday, February 20th, 2022
Show Synopsis: It is here…the main event of 2022. An elevated point of view and feeling fully grounded will be essential to fully comprehend how massive the changes ahead will be. I cannot predict exactly what the initiation or outcome of any event that manifests from the potent and irresistible force of the Pluto Return in the USA Natal Chart will be. I do sense that as with anything Plutonic it will be intense, and long-lasting. Since this celestial event is focused on the 2nd House of America’s birth chart, the emphasis will be on the theme of security and power, or lack thereof. It will center on money, currencies (fiat, digital and crypto), housing, food, farming, stocks, bonds, equities, futures, real estate, trading, and fertility. Also thrown into the mix will be secrets becoming known, revelations of official frauds and Ponzi schemes, and anything or everything having to do with the old control and power-over game. However, that will only be possible by renouncing that game and allow it to fade into the mists of time. Time for new beginnings.
Showtime is 5:30pm GMT, 12:30pm EDT, and 9:30am PDT.

“Astral Amnesia and Hypnosis”
by Isaac George
April 15th, 2021
If you live in the US of A, then Happy IRS Day to you. Oh, that was yesterday…sorry, I forgot. Must be that astral amnesia happening again…
Maybe you are feeling a bit under the gun? Not enough time for all that you must do? Perhaps you cannot even remember much about what you did or what happened yesterday? If so, welcome to astral amnesia and the hypnosis of living in digital dimension. Courtesy of Saturn-Jupiter-Pluto in Aquarius cycle, but the rabbit hole goes even deeper than the astrology of these times.
Yes, I know. You may not have a ton of time to read long blogs, or listen to long podcasts, or watch long videos. In fact, you may feel too challenged, and feel like giving up…and giving in. Hard to remember what life used to be like anymore, much less come up with the energy to create a new and different life. Forget lifestyles and amassing fortunes…this is the real deal we are participating in. But it could be different, it really could.
Some of the issues I have been focused on may seem uncomfortable for you, or seemingly out of character for me. I have questioned the official story of what life should be on this planet since I was 6 years old. A lot of what passes for ‘normal’ in the world has disturbed me…almost constantly. Something I could not put my finger on, or describe, but did not feel right. That quest for answers and seeing the bigger picture is now becoming clearer for me.
One thing I do want you to know is this: all that I am saying and doing is done from love, to create more awareness and awakening. I desire that we all may come into a deeper caring about what has been happening, and is happening, on our beautiful world, to it is myriad and amazing creatures, and what is happening to ourselves…the human family. We are all here to contribute, and to help each other realize the fullness of our divine nature, and to embrace how powerful and beautiful it is to be fully human. We all desire to be free…just as we were created. Sometimes, some of us must swim against the tide to remind others of where they have compromised themselves. It is one way the divine awakens others. However, not everyone will appreciate you for that service rendered.
Back in the early part of the 21st Century when I was channelling Archangel Ariel and hosting workshops, everyone started getting more into the Internet and handheld phones. Whenever I thought about upgrading from my clunky Motorola pager and answering system, my inner voice always whispered, “no way.” I did not get my first mobile phone till 2007 and did not have a smartphone until 2014. Call me slow, but I am not totally anti-electricity or anti-tech! As an electric guitarist, synthesist and recording engineer, I can fully appreciate the convenience and magic of digital recording. However, I still prefer analogue recordings and equipment over digital for tons of reasons. Analogue means to be the same as the real world…analogous. Old magnetic tape and vinyl records hold more of the real world in those ferrous particles and grooves than any CD or MP3 can.
Simply put, digital can only mimic real-world sight and sound, not improve on it. Play any vinyl LP of classical music for plants, and they will grow better than another group of plants exposed the same classical recording on an MP3 file.
:>In 2013 I encountered two interviews with a fellow named John Lash. He wrote a book entitled “Not In His Image”. Turns out he is a Gnostic scholar and his translation of the Gnostic Gospels, the Nag Hammadi Codices, contained a fantastical tale of entities that the ancients called the Archons. Created accidentally, and comprised of artificial intelligence, these beings were confined to our solar system. In a weird twist, they are related to us, but that is another story. However, because of this kinship, they have access to our subconscious and conscious mind. In other cultures, they have other names. The Yaqui Indian sorcerers of northern Mexico called them the “flyers” or the “alien installation. In ancient Arabic cultures, they were known as the “djinn”. In Native American, “wetiko”, or mind parasites, and in the Sumerian cultures, the Annunaki or Watchers.
I provide this a background due to the subject of my radio show topic this Sunday, “Tech Trap”. The stunning correlation between this artificial species and Big Tech is striking in many aspects. The Archons are envious of this planet, but due to their makeup, they could not survive in this atmosphere for long. They are hostile to humans, because of our divine gift of “nous” (intelligence) and “epinoia” (imagination). We can create, they can only mimic or create a counterfeit of something. The one area they are exceptionally good at is to influence humans to become like they are - robotic, given to groupthink or hive mind, and totally absent of emotion or empathy.
Universal Mind or Source is neutral towards all aspects of Itself and is inherently non-judgmental.
Unconditional Love allows for all kinds of expressions of life, including artificial ones. We are still mammals, human animals, but animals in possession of some quite unique qualities that differ from other animals.
These qualities the Archons covet. If they cannot be like us, or have this planet, then they do not want anyone else to have it either. This is how a jealous lover thinks and acts. How do you destroy something so that no one else can have it? In this case, influence the inhabitants to do it for you. It was announced yesterday that just 3% of our ecosystem remains pristine and intact. It should be obvious to all of us that what is occurring is not helpful or desirable, and it must end no matter how many corporate shareholder profits it damages. This is part of the allowing process of the Divine. However, what sort of experience do we really want? What kind of world do we wish to align with and live in?
Another way we get distracted and keep us suspicious of each other has been the Covid con. It is evident that governments and Big Tech and Big Pharma are capitalizing on this for their own ends. Civil liberties have been thrown to one side, and everywhere governments are legislating “temporary” powers to themselves that will never be rolled back.
There is also what I call the financial false flag scenario. Some mysterious stranger invents Bitcoin and blockchains and 11 years later it has mushroomed to epic proportions. This has been accomplished on the perception that it is somehow different from the traditional elitist financial system. One problem with that perception is that the value of crypto is tied to the current financial and currency markets. No matter what anyone believes about cryptocurrencies, they are extremely harmful to the environment. On top of that, the relentless push of Big Tech and telecoms for 5G and the roll out of the Internet of Things, including wearable and implantable tech, will create a huge energy demand that drives the use of more fossil fuels, impacting the environment.
With Saturn in Aquarius, the infusion of enforced group conformity by non-terrestrial intelligences is becoming more the norm. Vaccination passports and mandatory testing becomes the sharp end of the stick by those who seek more control, and more profit.
When Pluto enters Aquarius in 2023, the real struggle for a human future will begin. We will all be faced with the choice of organic or non-organic…compliant, or free…human, or transhuman.
When I look around these days, most folks do not realize how deeply they are seduced and embedded in the artifice of the digital culture. The electric realm has popped folks out of their bodies. More and more people succumb to being forgetful and hypnotized, and complying with things that 2 years ago they would never consider doing. The energy to care about anything other than personal survival is waning. However, there are those who still care, and are making their voices heard.
As I write this, I could admit that the situation seems hopeless. However, never ever fall for that one…it is part of the con game. If we declare ourselves for the planet, for all organic life...for humanity, and for Love, then we can never be lost or without a purpose. The Indian activist Vandana Shiva was interviewed by Russell Brand this past week, and her words ring through my heart. She even stunned Russell into a state of deep reflection and emotion. I could never do those words justice, so I encourage you to click here, go to the 4 minute and 40 second mark and listen for yourself.
We are in a state of spiritual emergency, and spiritual emergence. Will it be possible to tame tech to serve us, and not some other master? Will we choose the organic Universe over a facsimile? Time will tell, and I do feel that we can and must make this choice. The stakes could not be higher than they are right at this moment. And this was the moment you selected to be here. Thank you for choosing to do so…we do love you and need you.
Blessings on your journey…together,

On the Air, with Isaac – “Revealing the Mysteries” Radio Show" – Sunday, April 18th, 2021
Live air times are 6:30pm BST, 1:30pm EDT, and 10:30am PDT.
Synopsis: The world was quite a different place 180 years ago. Since those times, we have experienced the introduction of electricity, wired and wireless communications, radar, radio, television, microwave communications, the mobile telephone (Motorola), the Internet, the cell phone, the iPhone, the smartphone, the wireless internet, super computers, and complex digital networking and nanotech. Now we are on the verge of AI (artificial intelligence) and the Internet of Things. Are we happier, are we healthier, or not? Is human consciousness and health being influenced and changed by these mediums, and are they changing us into something not even resembling being human?
This show will specifically explore behind the veil of electronic tech, and the deeper origins of how alien artificial intelligences are the source of much of what we call the “conveniences” of modern life and become aware of the consequences of not understanding the deeper implications of AI = alien intrusion, alien interference, alien intelligence, and how we need to deal with it going forward.
Renewals and Reinstallations
State of the Planet Update – April 1st, 2021
“Renewals and Reinstallations”
By Isaac George
April Fool’s Day, 2021
We begin April like a lamb...or a bunny. As usual, no matter what is transpiring in the world of humans, Nature just keeps doing what comes naturally. Slowly, here and there, the harbingers of springtime are obvious. We are past some of the heaviest lunations we have had in some time but wait…there is more to come! Just not now.
Enjoying each moment has never meant as much now as it did before March 17th of 2020. Wherever you are, and whomever you are, I am sure you have been touched or affected in some way by the events of the past year. It has not been a picnic, and if there is one standout musical piece, I would pick to describe the feeling of the past year, it would be The Talking Head’s “Life During Wartime.” I can see David Byrne jogging around the stage at the end of the tune, like a rabbit with a fox on its tail.
So back to renewal and enjoying the moment. Personally, I feel like too little butter spread over too much bread. At other times, I am in the epiphany of no time, no movement. The contrasts are decidedly strong and illustrate the stark differences between being and doing, and what any of us have held on to for a strong sense of certainty, and that awkward sense of floating free, and randomly, unsure about anything or what may occur next. We need the being self to renew and refresh. We also need it to allow for what is beginning to happen now, which is like the download and updating from the original Source Codes within our cosmic archives. It is difficult to express this process at an organic level unless you can think like a seed. The oak seed contains the oakness of the tree it will eventually become. It knows what it knows without having to learn a thing! It does what it does, effortlessly. If one of us human types decide to “improve” that seed, we may try to cross it with something like an elm seed. Even so, the oak seed and the elm seed carry the original Divine instruction set and may reject the hybridization experiment. Trees can be like that…uncooperative. So, renewing something does not just mean to take a break, then continue something as before, like that is what we are supposed to be doing.
Many will be doing the Easter thing this weekend, beginning with the Christian calendar observation of Good Friday. Considering the Easter story, I never did see why they called it “good.” Anyway, unless one knows the original story, the seed story, one can easily assume that the Christian hybrid of holiday is what is the natural thing. In a nutshell, it is not the natural thing. In recent years, some historians and anthropologists have raised inconvenient issues about how the original meaning of these times is rooted in pagan fertility rituals, and other disturbing and uncivilised practices. The pagans thought it was cool to celebrate the rising of the sap in the woods and fields, so to speak, and did not carry around the shame-guilt syndrome that the three Abrahamic religions came up with. Good thing too. Even today, our original and innocent seed of divinity within us whispers, “I don’t know from shame, so why should you?”
If you are at all interested in realizing your true nature, your infinite self, your total humanity, then you might wish to consider that it will not become a realization unless you let go of your cherished beliefs, traditions, and ideologies. You cannot put new tires on a tired old car. This will become more apparent as we get deeper into the second half of April, and the inner arising of the original Divine blueprints will become quite noticeable. It will get a bit more intense inside of we and in the collective, starting around the next New Moon on April 11th-12th. More on that in next week’s edition of “State of the Planet”. The most important date to consider between now and then is Monday, April 5th, when the Moon and Pluto meet at 26 degrees of Capricorn...very close to the USA's natal Pluto.
In the meantime, I heartily recommend you to Nature’s care. Spend time out of doors as much as possible this weekend. Check out the flowers, the bees, and if you spot a rabbit, you might follow it and see where he or she goes. You just may find Alice’s rabbit hole. Now would not that make the ‘normal’ world disappear?!
Blessings on your journey,
I am still offering my astrological consulting sessions and bespoke spiritual mentoring programs. For more information, please click here.
If you're looking for the two part interviews I did with ambient guitarist David Helpling, just click here to go to the Show Archives. They've just been added.

In this Sunday’s radio show I will be exploring and sharing about the pre and post Abrahamic seeds of Easter and the modes and myths that were co-opted by Christianity to fit a particular narrative. Hope you can join me at 6:30pm BST, 1:30pm EDT, or 10:30am PDT. The primary YouTube Live Feed is here.
The Total/Lunar/Super/Blood Eclipse
by Isaac George
27 September 2015
The only constant is change. And the more things change, the more they stay the same. Ahh, the Mystery of the Paradox. Life will continue beyond this Full Moon/ Lunar Eclipse/Blood Moon/Harvest Moon, and there will still be unfinished business to attend to over the next six months…or longer. Depending on your perceptions and situation that may sound like welcome or unwelcome news. However, the bottom line as I feel it is this is just another alarm clock ringing to wake us all up. The ringing of the village church bell did the same for folks long before there were clocks, and in the Far East it might have been the drone of Tibetan trumpets. Nonetheless, the call to awaken is happening.
I liken an eclipse to the ringing of large bell, and the tone and harmonics takes a while to die away. There will be another striking of that large celestial bell next March, which could be considered a future bookmark to the one coming up tomorrow in the U. S., and early Monday morning in Asia and Europe. A bookend holds a book up. A bookmark holds a place for you in the book where you've finished a section or chapter, and you intend to return to it at a later time. A completed cycle is like a pair of bookends holding up the book or books. The real bookend event is the upcoming end of the Nodes of the Moon traveling through Libra and Aries. There's a beginning, in this case March 20th-22nd of 2014, and there's moment of crossing the finish line, which will occur around October 10th, 2015, when they move into Virgo and Pisces. The celestial bookmark moment will be with this Total Lunar Eclipse, and the next one will be the Annular (Partial) Lunar Eclipse on March 23rd, 2016. (See attached charts below)
Much has already been written about this "Blood Moon" so I won't revisit the points already made by many very good fellow astrologers. I certainly have stepped back a bit about this one being the big Ending of everything that has transpired in our relationships over the past 18 to 24 months. I also don't buy into any apocalyptic scenarios.
Some are speculating that it may have something to do with Ascension and Wave X. There is an increase of anomalous events and experiences, of that there is no question. I've had missing time, even a missing day, and my visual and auditory senses are shifting and changing. Perhaps Wave X has come, maybe gone, or is out to lunch. Hard to speculate whether this or that date or event is the Big Deal. Personally, I'm not too keen any longer on there ever being such a thing. It's a process, and even though it feels like acceleration, it is still an evolutionary process. At least that's the way it appears and feels to our filters.
In 1997 I was an avid listener of the Art Bell syndicated radio show "Dreamland" in the United States. He penned a book with another writer called "The Quickening", and many predictions about ascension and mass awakenings were foretold for the years 2000 and 2001. What we got instead was a fizzle for the supposed Y2K "millennium bug", followed by the 9/11 attacks, and then the War on Terror. Astrologers were watching and reading other signs of the times before this, and the upcoming Saturn - Pluto opposition clearly indicated that the "party like its 1999" (Prince) was not going to continue into the next decade. We are also still currently under the influence of the Uranus-Pluto cycle, and this Eclipse transpires with four planets in retrograde: Neptune, Chiron, Mercury and Uranus. This tends to color the game a bit, especially with Mercury in Libra. That "other" event, the End of the Mayan calendar in December 2012, may actually be evident in the breakdowns (and some breakups) happening. So perhaps that was the real deal...and it'll just take a long time to unravel. I feel that what this Eclipse challenges us about is to foster cooperation and partnering and and to consider it from a whole new level of Consciousness. Saturn and Pluto are direct, and for the time being Saturn is in the "too early" degrees to make much of a dent in the current energies. He'll be more of a factor by early December.
In the meantime, what can we do with this opportunity? The Sun and Moon are at 4 degrees of Libra and Aries, and yes, they are very close to the North and South Nodes of the Moon, which are at the Super Galactic Center Zero Degree, or World Axis degree. But close only counts in horseshoes, and I defer to the new Eclipse season in March 2016 as the possible final reckoning for what we've been experiencing thus far this year and in 2014. My mind wants to parrot what many others have been saying, as in whatever was happening with you and any significant "others" during the transit of the Nodes in Aries -Libra (and the Venus Retrograde this past summer) then that's it, done and dusted, kiss it all bye-bye. Hmmm… not so fast.
We are human beings. We have a need to relate. We are dependent upon each other as we are for sunlight, water, an oxygen rich atmosphere and good topsoil. Yes, we love our independence and freedom, but without anyone to share it with, we would start to feel like the character Tom Hanks played in the movie Cast Away. His only friend was a volleyball he named Wilson. What I feel this Eclipse is about is a call to reassess our relationship to Human Relationships (and lots more!). Too often we reject the unknown for the known, thinking it's the more practical or pragmatic route. Sometimes we go to an extreme in the other direction, and become lost in the "Other", or in the ideal of Love. Somewhere in the middle there may be a sweet spot, a place where magic and romance can meet practicality and sustainability. Goodness knows that we still have a lot of clean-up work to do around the baggage of hurt we share individually and collectively in affairs of the heart. We are told not to lose our head in love and relationships, but too often that is exactly what needs to happen, because all of our stories and associated emotions are bound up into one big protective ego dance.
A week ago I stumbled across this image on Facebook that I felt initially attracted to, perhaps because of a recent personal experience with someone I feel very close to. Inside my head, I could hear my wounded little not-self egging me on, saying "yeah, so and so has the wrong heart…just blow that off!" When I looked at again I realized what I was engaged in, and immediately saw that the image and its message was like someone else's pain trying to divide my love for this person and turn it into a judgmental hate. I've been seeing a lot of these types of messages lately, and they're dressed up to sound like they are encouraging our sovereignty and designed to get us out of victim consciousness. However I feel that there is message underneath, trying to drive wedges between people by creating mistrust and fear. It certainly plays well to our old wounds and hurts...creating reactions instead of healing. Perhaps we are just all trying too hard to be strong all the time, and now it's being exploited. By who or what isn't the point here, so I'll leave that for the Reader to ponder for now. When I finally commented on this image in the Facebook post, I wrote: "There are no wrong hearts... only confused ones. And they ache to be loved too."
As I was writing this blog, I also stumbled on to this article about our personal and interpersonal need to belong, to connect. According to the author, Bethany Webster, our primary need is to feel connected and attached to others. Bonding is the fabric that is so important in many mammalian societies. Dolphins are one example, and Bonobo chimps are another. Our drive to individuate is normal and healthy, but there are caveats. The so-called "war" between the sexes is one of the wedges that preys on our separation anxieties…separation from Source, from our birth mother, from Nature, and from each other. Disconnection, or the strategy of divide and conquer, is at the heart of most religions (us versus "them") and political systems (liberals versus conservatives). Our penchant for labels and naming has landed us in branding hell, and now we sense that all is not as it was intended to be. Click to read the full article: http://womboflight.com/2015/09/25/raw-open-and-real-moving-from-traumatic-aloneness-to-universal-oneness/
What all this has to do with the Eclipse tonight/tomorrow, and the road ahead, is that I feel that our need for connection and our need for honoring and cultivating new beliefs and behaviors in our relationships is inexorably bound up with the call to pay attention to the much bigger issues facing us as a species. Is our economic model sustainable, and will we avert ecocide in time? Can we cast aside enough of our isolationist and egocentric tendencies that we come to actually care for the strangers in our midst? This may be what part of the Syrian refugee crisis is about. One thing feels certain…we only are given a certain amount of time to align in collaboration with the Planetary Evolutionary (and Cosmic) impulse before higher laws and powers overtake us and force changes necessary for planetary survival. Note that I don't necessarily include us in that prerogative, but I heartily enjoin us to consider what will happen if we choose to continue as we have been. The Chinese have a saying - "if you don't change your direction, you'll end up where you're headed." Or, something like that.
The microcosm and the Macrocosm are infinitely linked…as within, so without, and as above, so below. How we respond to our current individual challenges and the challenges in our relationships, and our response to the global questions I stated above will determine our individual and collective journey ahead. This Eclipse is one of the bookmarks. Yes, some relationships may have to end in order for a change of belief to occur - or a change of belief must occur in order that the right people can line up to create a new paradigm on many levels.
The change of the Nodal Signs is one of the bookends. The next chapter will be read and hopefully understood by next March. We have the time just now, but do we have the trust, will courage and love to do what is necessary? We don't need to trash the people that we've loved or let go of people we care about with rancour or in a vengeful way. What we desperately need though is to let go of the beliefs, wounds, attitudes and suspicions that poison our perceptions and erode the Love that we are, and that gave birth to our existence. Whatever this Eclipse may mean to you, it certainly represents another clearing being made in order for us to claim the opportunities that lie ahead. Knowing is the science of faith, and with Saturn in Sagittarius for the next few years, our faith and beliefs will be tested.
Joy and love are the main ingredients for successfully embracing the healing being offered in these times. It will be the joy of letting go of what no longer serves while loving ALL of you, no matter what you think about your stuff. That goes double about how you perceive the reflections of all the other souls around you. Be gentle with them, and with yourself because Sun in Libra is the ultimate balancing act.
And remember…don't look down!
With love, Isaac

The Longest War on Earth
by Isaac George
September 21st, 2013
Excerpt from recent session with a male client…
“Funny how you never hear the word ‘misandry’ anymore. It’s the opposite of misogyny. I consider myself pretty educated, but I’d never heard of it before. To me, that just shows how lopsided the psychology [of men and women’s issues] has become. You see it [misogyny] in movies, social media, everywhere, and I’m not saying it doesn’t exist, but there’s a whole other side of the coin, and that couldn’t be going on unless there was somebody else hitting the ball back…you know, like a tennis match, right? That’s kind of crazy. I look at Facebook, social media and things like that and I have yet to see in all this New Age hyperbole flying around everywhere, any man taking a picture and posting it online and being referred to as a ‘god’. Not every woman who rolls out of bed with bedhead and does a 'selfie' in the mirror is a goddess, but there’s no guy out there who can stand up there on that platform with her.”
Over the past five months I’ve been going through a huge metamorphosis about women and relationships. It feels like every wound, every insecurity and every mistake or wrong thought, word or deed that related to the opposite gender was coming up in a grinding and relentless way. Grit and grace, as they say, but you don’t get the grace till the grit is through. When I published the blog “The Shame Virus” in mid-April, that should have been a tipoff. However, that wouldn’t have prepared my personality for what has transpired later on, from just before my birthday in late June until a few days ago. In the past four or five weeks, I have had a considerable number of clients, friends reflect that they too were under these same pressures. And ever since September 11th-12th, an upwelling of anger, rage and frustration seems to have erupted through many women.
The main themes of these times are about power, autonomy, the feminine, the masculine, the physical, the spiritual, trust and withholding, fear and love. For my own journey, many of my former relationships began showing up like the ghosts of Christmas past…only the were represented in the present by other real people in the environment. The memories were there too…raw and uncomfortable. Being strongly attracted to women, and putting them on pedestals for their beauty and perfection. Not being ‘good enough’ for this or that woman. Being rejected and betrayed by women, or in some cases, attacked (by women, and sometimes men) for what was perceived as part of me being ‘inappropriate’ (guess which part?). Not always sure whether I could entrust my partner with my secrets, which I thought were probably too weird or shameful to disclose…like being attracted to other women whilst in the relationship, and not accepting that I just love women in general, and that I am naturally and instinctively more attuned to the feminine. I wasn't even sure if I could trust women…sensing that at any moment I would become old news.
In my late teens and beyond, girls and women came to me with their problems, confiding in me, telling me truths that they were afraid to share with their partners. I felt honoured to be there to support and comfort, and whatever I offered in the way of friendly advice was always appreciated. However, some of the stories I heard didn’t do much to soften my opinions about how my own gender (for the most part) treated the feminine pretty badly.
As a child, I just didn’t like competitive sports or the bullying and bravado that my male classmates were into. I loved to be in nature and spent most of my free time in solitude within its bosom, and so my love for the feminine grew very strong from my earliest memory. When I was older, I was a perfect gentleman, and opened the doors and paid for the dates. I respected and desired the feminine. I trusted in it implicitly. The only male energy I could really be around were the oddballs and outcasts – mostly comrades who were into music, drugs, Tibetan Buddhism, spiritualism and science fiction books. They were also questioning reality and looking for answers of either a spiritual or existential variety. The women I was attracted to were also artists or a bit outside ‘normal’ society. To live on the borderlands was preferable to normal society. After all, Nixon was in office, and the Vietnam War raged on.
Over the next two and half decades, I searched for myself, my career path, and the ideal partner for the ideal marriage, or if not that, at least a superb live-in partner. Part of my idealism around women was that I felt strongly that once I found ‘the One’, then we would change the world together. Now here, on the other side of so many more changes and the dropping away of outworn patterns of belief, I see that who I was looking for was there inside of me. Ever since the kundalini awakening in 1994, we’re still getting acquainted! That profound and momentous spiritual emergence was partially precipitated by a powerful female, and when I looked backwards at my life path, I saw how pivotal the presence of women and the Divine Feminine was in my journey! After that turning point, I re-membered my Tantric and Goddess connections from other lifetimes and embraced some of the New Age philosophies rampant at the time about the men should now serving to bring the Divine Feminine back into the world. The message was that it was this movement that would change the course of humanity and the Planet after the turn of the Millennium in 2000.
So, here we are, fully thirteen years later, and what a bumpy ride it’s been since the beginning of this century. I don’t need to provide a list of all that has transpired since then, but I do encourage you to look at yourself, and look around at this world, and ask yourself some very important questions…
Are happy with yourself?
Are you happy about men/women?
Are you happy about your own gender?
Are you happy in your relationship(s) / partnership(s)?
Are you fulfilled creatively?
Are you fulfilled sexually?
Do you see that the world has become fundamentally a better place since the advent of New Age/Neo-Tantric and New Thought philosophies?
Are you friendly with all of your emotions, or do you label some emotions as ‘bad’ or ‘dangerous’?
Is your spiritual path working for you?
Are you worried about the future?
Do you feel helpless or powerless to change any of the above?
This is just a short list, and you could probably add to it. The point of this is to develop a profound and honest practice of self-disclosure. We are all susceptible to the self-delusory tendency to see ourselves and the world as we want them to be, not as it really is. I guarantee that in the beginning, you will not like what you find.
So today, after a five month long ‘dark night of the Soul’ we are emerging into a new space. For me personally, it is a space filled with a new awareness about the genders and the gender wars. As the title of this essay suggests, the longest war on Earth has been between male and female. The fires of purification around the issues of power in the realm of human relationships, whether they be male-female, female-female, or male to male, are now burning brightly. This brightness is lighting the way for the emergence of the true sacred masculine.
Men everywhere are under pressure, and yet our focus seems to be continuously drawn to the sanctity and safety of women. The recent conviction and sentencing to death of four men in India for the brutal rape and killing of a young woman there is held up as ‘doing something’ about men’s disregard for respecting women and guaranteeing their safety. There is only retribution, and no time spent trying to understand how and where these tragedies are birthed from.
Men are committing suicide in greater numbers than ever before every day, whether they be poor farmers in India or Africa, or U.S. and U.K. veterans from the ‘War on Terror’ being waged globally…not just in Iraq and Afghanistan. Meanwhile, other men who run the banks and corporations, or lead from positions of political power, do nothing to stem the rise of environmental and financial terrorism against both men and women. My partner is a Tantric therapist, and reports that many of her male clients mirror the feelings that my client expressed at the beginning of this essay. These men suffer from erectile dysfunction, low self-esteem, worry that they cannot please their wives, partners or lovers, drink too much, eat too much, smoke too much, and are chronic workaholics. And yet, when they want simple acknowledgment, pleasure and a reflection of compassion from women, they are given the impression that there still has not been enough atonement for all the crimes that their gender has perpetrated against women over the centuries. The guilt is killing men, and women’s shame around their sexual and emotional power is distorting their natural balance.
We portray our genders as either victim or victimizer. We completely mis-remember that we are both without gender when we are not ‘here’ in this human experience. I am not saying that being gendered is unspiritual. That is of the domain of religions and power-mad gurus that tell you that sex and the human condition aren’t quite clean and perfect enough. Our power to project our insecurities and judgments on each other should be a signal to us to examine what we are doing to harm each other, rather than to help each other…to deeply question what it is that causes this to happen over and over again…for thousands of years. How did it ever come to this?
I cannot answer that question in a single essay. I only intend to bring awareness to how important it is to welcome the Sacred Masculine into the equation of Life. There is an agenda to disempower and suppress the power of the fully-healed and emancipated man. Men are expected to be as rich as Donald Trump, as good looking as George Clooney or Thor, be as smart and as witty as Jon Stewart, be a lovable clown like Steve Carell, and also be the perfect Tantric lover who has unlimited stamina while remaining emotionally present and gentle. Expectations are running a bit high, and are a bit lacking in reciprocity. Somehow, we all are looking to get something from each other, and have a damned difficult time in allowing ourselves to receive from each other. Unconditional Love is not something we ‘do’…it is the allowing of receiving to happen, as much as the giving to be welcomed. There is no opposite to Love without Conditions…or else it isn’t Love at all.
Yes, the masculine is under pressure in many other ways. Sperm counts are falling like rocks out of the sky while prostate cancer, heart disease, and sexual dysfunction are on the rise. Most men are addicted to sports events as an acceptable outlet for male aggression, while fuelling it with unhealthy foods and alcohol. Numbed out by 200 channels of television, endless false image brainwashing through media, trainloads of testosterone – destroying chemicals in the food, food packaging and water, and the male hormone disruption brought about by the growing and increasingly intense EMF radiation threat, they either willingly or unwittingly have come to believe that they don’t have any right or ability to stand up for themselves, or to challenge the corrupt power structures masquerading as legitimate authority that seeks to confound and disempower both genders. We are told repeatedly, even by our New Age ‘masters’, “accept things as they are…no use getting your knickers in a twist. Be calm, meditate, don’t give in to anger…that leads to the Dark Side!” This is the covert suppression of the sacred masculine. We must become the ‘safe’ sex.
Unless women are willing to sincerely look deeply into their own dark feminine recesses, they will continue projecting their sense of powerlessness onto the masculine, and stay ignorant of their own inner masculine strength. Unless men fully accept their own dark unhealed masculine, they cannot share space or power with their inner feminine, or with external women. We are here to realize our inherent equality, beyond the labels of male and female. To cooperate with each other is the only sane way forward out of the corruption that is so evident all around us. The Divine Feminine without the Divine Masculine will not be effectual in responding to and acting on the behalf of planetary and human survival. Speaking truth is one thing. Living it is the only thing that makes a real difference.
It may be time to stop the search for Divine Union as some idealistic ‘spiritual’ state of affairs, and even drop the projective labels of ‘god-goddess’ or ‘Shiva-Shakti’. Perhaps we have all been manipulated by false dreams and many misunderstood myths, with predictable programmed results ensuring that men and women remain estranged from each other. An example of how similar we may actually be on many levels, is recounted in a recent book that overturns many assumptions about human female sexuality. Entitled “What Do Women Want”, it in many ways upends and contradicts our cherished pets about how different the two genders are in the sexual arena. When it was released, feminists trashed it immediately, just because the person who compiled the case studies was a man. No wonder the poison of mistrust clouds our perceptions, and dulls our ears from really hearing each other’s pain and desires.
We can begin to change that. We all want to be loved and accepted. It will require courage, tact and a willingness to communicate. It will demand that all of us discover the truth of our ancient enmity, and what caused it in the first place. It will require action, not just reflection and ritual. It will require that men and women to first seek to make peace with their inner masculine and feminine, while choosing to listen to each other with compassion. In this will the true Sacred Marriage come into being.
War is over…if you want it. (John Lennon)
