Return to Sender
STATE OF THE PLANET UPDATE: “Return to Sender”
February 11th, 2022
Another year, another momentous month, and many different energies pushing and pulling in many different directions. If there is one recommendation for the now, is trying to maintain some equilibrium and keep your cool. Things could fray at any moment, so it’s beneficial to take three deep breaths whenever you feel on the verge of overwhelm or your fuse is lit by your own sense of frustration, or other’s demands, or information and energy overloads. Reminds me of an old Broadway musical called “Stop the World, I Want to Get Off!”
The multidimensionality of events and stimuli is quite evident in the outer material reality, but it is mostly happening in the mind/astral realm. Our emotional bodies are jostled, and our physical bodies are telegraphing frantic messages like “danger ahead”, or “Hey, pay attention! We’re in pain, discomfort and insecurity!” This is unsurprising when the entire planet is immersed in a chaotic fishbowl of artificial digital atmospheres, media-fostered fear headlines, and one crisis after another all clamouring for attention and action.
Take a BIG step back from it all! All this is not who you are, nor is it indicative of the true nature of Nature and every other soul in this world. Meditation is important for calming the mind stuff and connecting and caring for our physicality even more so. When I get rattled, I listen to music…calming, meditative and ethereal music. Do whatever you works for you, not as a mindless form of escapism, but as a conscious form of self-care and rebalancing.
The astrological/energetic markers for the weeks ahead are also multidimensional and multipurpose. Remember, what we call astrology is nothing more than a symbolic language for understanding life on Earth, nothing more and nothing less. It won’t make you more spiritual, but it can point you towards things in your psyche that may get in the way (karmic habits) of your full self-realization. When applied to national or world events, astrology has an uncanny ability to predict potential manifestations of our collective consciousness or help us understand in hindsight what the hell just did happen, and why.
We are embodied forms of Consciousness, and that is why everything ‘feels’ so freaking real. At the level of the Absolute, it is all just a form of play manifesting in a dualistic way. So, what is the Absolute wanting us to pay attention to, right now? Remember that the transiting Nodal Axis is astrology’s way of highlighting the most important thing, right now. (For those of you who are students of astrology or grizzled veterans, please reference the charts I’ve provided below.)
If you have your own chart, check for any aspects to the degrees mentioned in the next paragraph, and remember that there can be five major aspects: Conjunctions (within 6 degrees of one another), Squares (at a 90-degree angle between points), Sextiles (60 degree angles), Oppositions (180 degrees opposite one another), and Trines (90 degrees in relationship to each other).
First up the Full Moon on the 16th arrives at 4:55pm GMT (London) at the 27th degree and 59th minute of Leo. Mars and Venus are conjunct at 16 degrees of Capricorn, and Pluto is now at the 27th degree of Capricorn and quincunx to the Full Moon. Quincunxes are awkward and irritating energies. Like being stuck on a plane with someone next to you snoring and you must put up with it. A Quincunx is a 150-degree angle between two points.
This Full Moon is being squared (challenged) by the Nodal Axis at 27 degrees of Scorpio and Taurus. Recall what I said above, about the transiting Nodes saying, “pay attention to this!”? Here it is. Taurus is our values versus the culture or society’s value system. Scorpio is about secrets and security, and depth…lots of deep dark stuff. Leo is about the heart chakra, yes, but also loves being the king or queen and feeling superior. The Sun at almost the last degree of Aquarius signals a call to look beyond the obvious and discover the higher ground perspective about what’s happening – and no, you cannot ignore or avoid what is unfolding.
The Native Americans feel that whatever is happening in the moment is exactly what needs to be happening, and to push it away or rationalize about it is never going to work. Better to open one’s eyes to the opportunity for remembering and growth instead of resisting. This will be a really great time for seeing things with new eyes, and then planting new thoughts and ideas around what sort of actions would you like to create that will build a new and better tomorrow for you and everyone else. Think “both/and” and take it beyond the personal. It is also a call to participate, even if you have strong feelings that are the opposite. For example, I have been wrestling with yearnings to simply chuck it all, head off into the woods, ditch my tech and live like a hermit. That may have a romantic spin to it, but it is a sure-fire way to fall off the edge of the world. Instead, this New Moon carries with it an energy to double one’s efforts to find and connect with your tribe and start building something in the way of a cooperative or community that looks and feels better than what the old world is offering. That world is dying, though it is putting up one hell of a fight along the way.
The next huge event is the USA Pluto Return on February 20th, 2022. To be frank we’ve been in the energy of this already for months, and this is the first exact contact of Transiting Pluto to the USA Natal Pluto since July 4th, 1776. That’s never happened before, and it is truly a once-in-a-lifetime event. How many times have you heard that in the past two years? Plenty I suspect. Make no mistake, this one is bigger than the Saturn- Pluto conjunction on January 12th, 2020, that heralded in (or helped trigger) the Covid era. Check out this chart for all the alignments and amazing aspects that this event demonstrates. It would take far too long to dissect every single aspect and meaning here, which is why I am devoting my next two radio shows to the topic (see details after the end of this article).
The main event is Pluto conjunct Pluto, in Capricorn. It is the end of America as we have known it, and we will have to see how and what the people of the USA choose to do with that. All the fruits of the seeds sown for 248 years are going to fall out of the sky all at once for good or bad. In America they refer to this as “chickens coming home to roost.” Hence the title for this article as it refers to how karma always returns to its sender.
Remember that there is only “good-bad” in duality. It may be more useful to phrase this as “helpful, or not helpful.” Since Capricorn governs governments, all manner of institutions (political, military, financial, medical, and social), a further dis-integration of the same may accelerate under Pluto’s tutelage.
Simultaneously, the regular folk may also realize that their leadership has been leading them down the garden path for a very long time. It will be time for everyone, not just Americans, to realize that the only power that these institutions and leaders have is the power we have ceded to them. It will be time to emancipate and wean ourselves out of the outworn habit of placing our trust and power into the hands of others, and start growing into mature, adult souls capable of looking after ourselves and each other in an egalitarian sort of way. Pluto is the Lord of Death, the Lord who Taketh Away, and anything that no longer is serving the collective soul of humanity is going to be removed...one way or another. Best not to resist it on any level as that is what causes suffering.
Once again, with the transiting Nodes involved the message is that THIS is the most important thing to focus on. Mars and Venus conjoined in Capricorn will stimulate loving ourselves no matter what happens and will stimulate our instincts to create structures and modalities designed to foster mutual survival and compassion…no matter what. Mercury conjunct the USA Nodal Axis in Aquarius-Leo will ask us, can you “think” in a new way about how to go about solving problems? In a nutshell, innovate from intuition, and provide leadership with heart. The transiting Moon in Libra conjunct the USA Natal Juno might be saying “all are welcome to the new Dispensation”, or something like that.
There will be two further conjunctions of Pluto to the USA Pluto this year, on July 12th when retrograde Pluto touches the natal Pluto, and the last pass, the “Resolution” will occur on December 28th, 2022.
So, what might happen at the initiation phase of this major archetypal event? Before I hazard a guess, I need to make the following statement:
One of the reasons that the world is the way it is and has been for thousands of years is because those entities and people whose orientation is rooted in domination of others in order to ensure the survival of the fittest, or hold the belief that the strong deserve to survive and the weak don’t matter, or they that were born to rule and see themselves as superior to us Muggles, is about to be heavily challenged. The globalists have woven the world together into a tight, authoritarian digital construct that they imagine they rule, and don’t kid yourselves, they know about astrology, and the hidden metaphysical arts and methods, and have employed their knowledge of these things to mold the world and human beings as they see fit. Talk about lack of consent on our part! They have been well-organized, insanely well-funded, and working towards total hegemonic control of this planet and all it’s people and resources for a very long time. They won’t go away quietly either.
This year is pivotal in challenging that mindset and agenda, and replace it with a spiritually based, human-oriented philosophy and culture that works for everyone. Otherwise, once Pluto moves into Aquarius in the early part of 2023, the psychotic push towards an all too real one world digital tyranny may well culminate between 2023 and 2025 and be in place until well after Pluto leaves Aquarius in 2043.
The rabbit hole goes ever so deep, and into some real sci-fi places that many would prefer not to venture. There are malevolent forces that have never held anything but envy for this planet, and animosity towards the humans and the divine experiment we are in and co-creating. Some call them the Archons, or the Jinn, or the Watchers. In the Americas they are referred to as “Wetiko”. Modern mystics and psychologists alike tend to think that this is an innate part of our original human design. I seriously contest that notion, as I feel that our original design never was intended to be predatory and deliberately cruel. These beings can infiltrate our minds, and we may unknowingly and ignorantly attribute some of our less desirable behaviours or propensities to our minds and personalities to our parents, our upbringing or some other purely psychological reason. If we remain unaware of what can influence and does influence us, then we cannot take responsible action to correct ourselves and trust solely in our own internal guidance system. A good technology example is television...or the Internet, and especially, smartphones.
I strongly feel that there are other lifeforms in the multiverse, many who benign and benevolent, and some that are hostile. These hostile ones are given the some of the same abilities and some form of intelligence and volition from the Creator of All That Is. They are allowed to follow their predatory instincts, because the true nature of Love is always non-judgmental of Itself and is always allowing. It will be up to us to grow in wisdom and reactivate the perceptual and practical skills needed to neutralize all such negative influences and do so without condemnation or judgement.
I remember listening to a very wise being from Arcturus who was speaking though a human channel in 1994 who addressed the thorny issues of entity possession, dark forces, and all that sort of stuff. With an abundant sense of humor and laser-like perception, he dropped the ultimate non-dualism statement: “After this world has ascended, that “darkness” will be revealed to be of the Light.” They are a type of lifeform but their nature is synthetic, i.e., artificial sentient intelligence. If that’s a tough one to imagine, then read the link and/or listen to the interview I've shared below. One serious little caveat - this same Arcturian being also said that he and his colleagues were told before they came to Earth that they should not participate with evil in any form. Doesn't leave a lot of wiggle room these days.
The Abiogensis of Acari Insects
The Archon Solution – John Lamb Lash interview
Okay, one of my guesses about the upcoming exact meeting of Pluto to the USA Pluto is a big disruption in the world financial markets, starting on Wall Street or perhaps something in the currency trading markets. This could be precipitated by any number of factors, so I can’t reliably name a catalyst. Personally, any number of current events could be the trigger. Russia invading the Ukraine is one I can name. Another is the Canadian PM Trudeau deciding to break up the Freedom Convoy, while still another could be the removal of Britain's scandal-ridden Prime Minister from power. This might precipitate a crisis of confidence in the UK currency - the Pound Sterling, and trigger panic in the markets and causing a devaluation.
Well, the bubbles have been building for some time in the real estate, speculative stock trading, and currency trading markets (cryptocurrencies as well). The growing gap between the very rich and the rest of us has only gotten worse the last two years, when another huge and secret transfer of wealth upwards to the 1% of the 1% was enacted. Pluto presided over the crash of the cheap credit and real estate markets in 2007-2008, and he may just end his tenure in Capricorn the same way he entered it – in a dramatic fashion. This is just one guess. What you do feel, what do think?
One thing is for sure…the only constant is change, so be prepared for anything. A full-on collapse may be just the galvanizing event to bring us together at a whole new level and build a new tomorrow. After all, isn't all we have ever wanted is to be free? Isn't that the rallying cry in many parts of the planet right now? Here's our opportunity, our gift. Let's make it real, for all.
Blessings on your journey,

On the next episode of "Revealing the Mysteries" which
airs this coming Sunday, February 13th, 2022
This episode explores the astrology of our times, which has been anything but boring! This coming week there will be a Full Moon at 16 degrees of Leo, which squares the transiting Nodes. Mars and Venus continue to tango closely together in Capricorn as well. But next Sunday, a grand reckoning finally lands - Pluto has returned to its starting position in the sky where it was when the great American experiment began on July 4th, 1776. The conventional wisdom is that so goes America, so goes the world. In this show I will share what this fateful line-up of planetary energies might bring forth in our collective and individual experiences. We have all seen how the dynamic power of Pluto (collective or World Soul)in action since it entered Capricorn in 2008 (credit-housing bubble), and the events of the past two years when it conjoined with Saturn in January 2020. We're not out of the woods yet. Pluto moving through the last two degrees of Capricorn will be offering a clear choice this year. Will we choose wisely? Let's hope so.
Showtime is 5:30pm GMT, 12:30pm EDT, and 9:30am PDT.

Endings and Beginnings
STATE OF THE PLANET UPDATE:
“Endings and Beginnings”
January 14th, 2022
Happy New Year (of the Tiger?)
For my first article of 2022 I had intended to discuss some of the more significant Astrology and Energy events for the second half of the month of January. As usual, the Universe sometimes has other ideas, and all it takes is one or two events not looked for to change one’s outlook and direction. I will address what that event was in brief, then attempt to describe the Energies of the moment as succinctly as I can. Remember…what I offer is only an opinion, and whatever information or guidance I supply must either resonate in your being somewhere, or not. If it doesn’t vibe with you, chuck it out the window!
Right after New Year’s weekend I decided to not launch myself back into my myriad projects and unfinished business that had been dogging me since before the Christmas break. Instead, I opted remaining quiet and observe what has been going on inside and outside of myself. There was just zero impulse to push or make anything happen…at least not yet.
Then, this past Monday morning I received word of the death of a very close friend whom I met during my days of living in West Cork, in the south of Ireland. She was a vibrant, engaging soul, with a winning smile and loads of intelligence. She worked at one of the only two health food stores in the area and was super knowledgeable about diet and supplements. She eventually went on to study and get a degree in nutritional coaching and natural medicine and had a thriving practice in her hometown.
My marriage was faltering at this time, and we shared all the usual ups and downs about love, relationships and so on. She was in and out of relationships during this time, and we provided a sounding board and support for each other which was treasured. We also laughed a lot over delicious coffees and Irish scones. In any case, after my separation I moved back to the U.K. and she went on to live part-time in the south of Spain, doing a lot of her health consulting work online. Then the pandemic and lockdowns ensued, and things changed quickly. She came back to Ireland, and basically got stuck there. We had been in regular contact all last year, and I last spoke with her about two weeks before Christmas. There was no indication of anything being amiss. Exactly 30 days passed between that conversation and her death.
My partner and I both knew her very well, so we are still reeling from the sudden shock of her passing. The suddenness of someone’s death is always a blow, especially when someone is as young, vibrant, and infinitely kind and compassionate as she was. It also gets you to focus on what is essentially important. The details and business of life looks somewhat banal and meaningless by comparison. Strangely enough, I had just finished reading a book a few days before this sad news that is all about death and dying. It’s entitled “Home with God” by Neale Donald Walsch. I highly recommend it to anyone who desires a different perspective and deeper understanding of this touchiest of subjects.
Of course, I went looking for any clues in her natal chart that might shed light on her death but came away mostly unsatisfied. However, the energies that we currently are experiencing have been somewhat less frenetic and at the same time a bit wobbly. In that vein I will attempt to provide some insights as to what we can expect going forwards from today until the first of February. But before I do so, I would like to invite anyone who feels so movedto offer a blessing for my friend that passed on this week, and to send healing and comfort to her family and the multitude of friends and grateful clients she had. I was one of her clients during 2021, and her assistance was a key to my recovery from a serious health issue. Her name was Alison, from Cork, Ireland. Thank you for your thoughts and prayers.
People are being born on this planet every single minute and dying every single minute. It is part of ‘What Is So’. To come to grips with one’s mortality is a heroic and necessary part of living, and we don’t give near enough attention to this part of our journey. No single person’s death is insignificant, nor is it random, no matter what the manner of passing they’ve chosen. Taken as a whole, it is important to acknowledge that we would do well to acknowledge death not as a curse, but as a rite of passage that is part of our coming into the wisdom and remembrance of who we really are. At some point even death will cease to be held in fear. The need for dying will itself will also vanish once we have reached a particular stage of reunion with our Source Consciousness. This is where every soul is bound, no matter how long it might take us.
The Energy Recap – January 14th to January 31st, 2022:
The astrological weather has now gone from being rather subdued to becoming very jumbled and uplifting, all at the same time. Mercury will begin its first retrograde journey of 2022 today, reversing direction at 11:40 AM GMT at 10 degrees of Aquarius, and conjunct (close) to Saturn at 14 Aquarius. In fact, by the time you reading this, it has already begun.
Between now and February 3rd the Winged Messenger will travel backwards through the early Aquarian degrees into the Earth sign of Capricorn, before turning around and heading back to where it started at 10 degrees of Aquarius. All Mercury Retros take about 9 weeks to complete. The shadow phase about two weeks prior to the retrograde point, then the 3 weeks or so for the actual backwards journey, then two more weeks to traverse the degrees forward till he arrives back at the starting gate. We get four Mercury Retrogrades this year…very unusual!
During this retrograde Mercury will conjunct Pluto at 26 and 27 degrees of Capricorn. A relentless digging to unearth some truth will be happening, collectively and individually. If you have any natal planets hanging out between 25 degrees of Capricorn to 10 degrees in Aquarius, Leo, Pisces, or Virgo, you’ll get to see what gets lit up in your blueprint. Also, and I am serious about this, Mercury Retrogrades ask us to examine what we’re thinking about, and why, and if there’s any truth still in those thoughts. We can take this opportunity to put more emphasis on our intuition and feeling natures, rather than simply rely on the monkey-mind in our left-brain.
It also is a good idea to back up data, check your anti-virus update status, avoid starting a new business or enterprise, sign any important documents, or make any big purchases that involve electronics or vehicles. Purchasing land or a home? If possible try to postpone signing anything until early February. Again, work with the energy consciously…and don’t panic if you must buy a new toaster or something like that. Just do what is necessary without anxiety or pushing.
On Monday the 17th we get a real corker of a Full Moon. Sun and Moon at 27 degrees of Capricorn and Cancer respectively. Just before that happens, the Sun and Pluto well team up on the 16th. Then on the 17th at approximately 11:37 PM GMT the Sun, Pluto, and Juno conjunct each other, and Juno gets up close and personal with the Moon. This will be an interesting mix with the emphasis on several disparate issues. The Sun energy is about core identity, Juno about preservation of traditions – especially regarding families and couples, and Pluto, the Lord of Death, whose archetype represents relentless growth and transformation through letting go of anything that no longer serves us…willingly or not! All that energy is harnessed behind the Nodes of the Moon, and opposite the Moon in Cancer (see chart below).
This chart is very wobbly, without any symmetry or balance. Hence the Moon becomes the recipient of a load of conflicting energies from Sun, Pluto, and Juno. It may feel like our egos experience multiple ego deaths of one degree or another. Again, if you have any sensitivity to all this look for any planets or angles in your blueprint that are at or near 26 degrees of Cancer, Capricorn, Aries, or Libra. All of these signs are in the Cardinal elements, so it may feel more pressing and stronger than usual. Of course, the energies of Capricorn and Aquarius are at present defining the feeling that our space is shrinking. Tyranny or draconian agendas are trying to get firmly entrenched, just hoping that the extreme levels of fear being generated will force compliance to “the rules.” I will provide you with new data over the next few weeks that counterpoint and countermand these impulses, along with my interpretations of what we need to be paying attention to, as well as what actions we can take as individuals to preserve our freedom to choose how to live the lives we want to live, and to establish and strengthen our commitment to health and healing on all levels of our experience of being human…and divine, and part of this planet and the Cosmos.
The third biggie is two days later, when Uranus finally turns direct in the sign of Taurus. Uranus has been idling along in backwards motion since turning Retrograde on August 19th, 2021. Having this archetype-energy of unpredictability and revolution turning around in the energy of Mercury Retro and a punchy Full Moon will give us that same kind of thrill as that moment you get just before the roller coaster tops the first big hill and begins its descent on the far side. Thrilling, but you may feel a bit white-knuckled by the sudden acceleration. This energy is the proverbial unforeseen monkey wrench in the works. Watch for possible shifts in global financial or commodities markets. I always recommend the Solari Report or Trends Research Journal for analysis and updates that make sense and possess a high degree of integrity.
Lastly, next week’s marathon includes the Nodes of the Moon changing signs from Sagittarius-Gemini to Scorpio-Taurus. Since Uranus is in Taurus, and Pluto is also in the Earth sign of Capricorn, the Nodes will stimulate those two outer planets significantly over the next eighteen months or so. The North Node in Taurus will trine Pluto on February 6th, and conjunct Uranus August 6th this year. There are many more aspects that the transiting Nodes will make to inner and outer planets, but these two dates I’ve provided may stand out large. The archetype of Taurus represents in symbolic form the themes of tribe, primary partner, sex for procreation and pleasure, fecundity, planting the crops, food growing and distribution, natural resources, money or modes of exchange, home and shelter, clothing and implements and in short anything that has to do with security and comfort. Scorpio resonates with acquisition, issues of power with or power over, Life, Death and Sexuality, legal proceedings, wills, inheritances, legacies, property, mystical practices and secrets, desires, obsessions, passions, and simply getting to the bottom of things.
After these events take place, the Sun moves into Aquarius on the 20th of January, and then just five hours after midnight on February 1st, we get a New Moon at 12 degrees of Aquarius, conjunct Saturn at 15 degrees of Aquarius. This for me is of those testing points, on what sort of Aquarian Age will we choose. A human one, or a transhumanist one. We will have to wait and see what we present to ourselves and what the world presents to us after the events of next week. On February 1st the Chinese New Year begins in the sign of the Water Tiger. Grrrr...
Summary: We have two very strong allies in the skies during all of 2022: Jupiter in Pisces and Chiron in Aries. The Jupiter effect is to expand and amplify, throw blessings around, and in Pisces encourage us to seek a deeper spiritual connection within ourselves and our Planet. It is a gentle and loving hotline to Home, to Spirit.
Chiron in Aries will be reminding us to that we are all individual expressions of the Divine, and that we possess the authority over what we allow or do not allow. Chiron was the outcast, the loner, and so it may feel like that for anyone who is personally resisting mandates and the intense coercion to comply with outer authority or herd mentality.
Perhaps mass demonstrations and protests are useless. Perhaps each one of us standing in our power of "no" is the way to go. A perspective worth investigating and pondering for sure. There are many people throughout our history who embodied this quality of spirit: Rosa Parks, Martin Luther King, Gandhi, Nelson Mandela, Robert Kennedy, Malcom X, the hunger strikers in Belfast prisons during The Troubles in Northern Ireland. Individuals and small groups of people who demonstrated courage in the face of overwhelming opposition, and at great personal cost to themselves. Will we dare to follow in their footsteps?
From Spaceweather.com – “SOLAR CYCLE UPDATE: Solar Cycle 25 is heating up. New sunspot counts from NOAA confirm that the young solar cycle is outperforming the official forecast. monthly value at the end of December 2021 was more than twice the forecast, and the highest in more than 5 years. The "official forecast" comes from the Solar Cycle Prediction Panel representing NOAA, NASA, and International Space Environmental Services (ISES). Using a variety of leading indicators, the Panel predicted that Solar Cycle 25 would peak in July 2025 as a relatively weak cycle, similar in magnitude to its predecessor Solar Cycle 24. Instead, Solar Cycle 25 is shaping up to be stronger. Sky watchers have already noticed the change. "We are definitely seeing the effects on the ground in the Arctic!" reports Chad Blakley of the Swedish tour guide service Lights over Lapland. "Auroras now are the best in years." – Data courtesy of Spaceweather.com.
I cannot report any hard data at this moment regarding interstellar influences per se, such as the Schumann Resonance fluctuations or gamma rays coming in from deep space. However, I am aware that we are experiencing massive influxes of energy that perhaps originates from other dimensions of parallel realities. Coupled with the end of the Long Count Mayan calendar and end of time (as we’ve known it), and the turning of the great ages from Pisces to Aquarius, we are all being offered a new set of choices.
What we do with these intense times in response to the many forms of stimuli we are receiving is still hanging in the balance. There are many serious and pressing issues we face as a species. Will we have the courage to do the right thing, and choose Life – an organic and dynamic state of being while having a human experience, full of light, health, equanimity, and joy? Or will we submit and succumb to the will of others, or other forces, that seek to enslave and dominate?
We are coming to a time of many endings, and a time of many new beginnings. I am feeling quite optimistic about it all. I would just prefer the transition to be a lot less full of uncertainty, pain, and suffering. I hope you feel the same way as well.
Blessings on your journey…

Let the Healing Begin
State of the Planet:
September 17th, 2021
“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.

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.

State of the Planet Update
July 23rd, 2021
Note: I apologize about last week's Update not going out as I was interrupted by an unwelcome computer failure. And sorry for not being able to let you know about last Sunday's radio show in advance. You can access it here.
“Revelations” – Blue Moon in Aquarius, Saturn Reactivated
"If you love large, you've got to hurt large. If you've got a lot of light, you've probably got an equal amount of darkness" - Sarah McLachlan, composer, singer
"We’re in a tight spot!!" - from the film “Oh Brother, Where Art Thou?”
The Full Moon tomorrow is a Blue Moon (second full moon in the same calendar month) and is also a bookend to the next Full Moon in Aquarius on August 22nd, 2021. This one begins at 01 degrees of Aquarius, and on the 22nd of August it lands on the 29th degree of Aquarius, the powerful “Anaretic” degree. Anaretic refers to a context in which our egoic free will is suspended, and a divine directive holds sway. This energy is demanding that we pay attention, do the necessary work, before we can move into the next phase of soul development. Our personal self would very much like to avoid, defer or postpone the effects of when a planet or luminary comes to the 29th or 00 degrees of any sign, but it simply cannot be resisted. One researcher into the Anaretic phenomenon calls it “the Hammer of the Gods”. Enough said.
“Well, what about free will?”, you might ask. Free will, or at least the power of choice, takes on different meanings depending on which level of being you are viewing it from. As a fractal of the Originator (Source, Goddess, etc.) we all have free will…up to a point. I like to think that my soul is constantly choosing whatever experiences it requires to know self and yet be one with All That Is, but my ego may interpret this as also having the ability to reject or even resist the Soul, and by extension, All That Is. Good luck with that. Yes, you could resist or rebel…at least for a while. Eventually you would realize that your personality was created by your Soul for a specific reason, and it does not run the show. This is what I feel is the revelation of personal surrender of the self to the Self. It is humbling, and it is necessary if we are to recognize and correct errors we have made along the way.
The revelations that will confront us from tomorrow’s Full Moon to the one on August 22nd will be focused on the delineation of reality versus illusion, truth versus falsehood, sovereignty versus servitude, and cooperation versus self-interest. The Saturn in Aquarian Era, soon to be fortified by the greater Pluto in Aquarian Era, will be testing us to choose wisely, and then act from that wisdom fearlessly and without hesitation. There will also be many revelations about what’s been hiding behind the curtains that will come fast and thick between the Full Moons and for months thereafter.
Now here is a 5 Step program you can use your free will on!
One of the best and simplest methods for mitigating stress and anxiety, shock or fear is conscious deep belly breathing. Breathwork is varied, and no single technique applies to all. Try out a few…see what works. Best of all, you can utilize it anywhere in almost any situation. If you need some tools in this regard, email me at email@example.com. I supply them for free.
That’s all for now, and I will have one more update to come at the end of next week, as I will be taking a long-awaited two-week break from everything starting on August 2nd, and extending to August 23rd. There are two more live episodes for my radio show “Revealing the Mysteries” before my holiday, this Sunday the July 25th, and the following Sunday on August 1st. Hope you can drop by and listen in. The following two shows on August 8th and the 15th may both be encore presentations. Not sure which one, or both. Let you know next week.
In the meantime, keep breathing, and keep your heart open.
Blessings on your journey and with lots of love,

Today as I was preparing to go for my almost daily bicycle ride, I stopped to glance over at one of our two rose bushes. They are planted in a small strip of ground between our living room window and the fence, and in previous years they have not been doing so well. Poor weather is usually the culprit here in the British Isles, but forgetting the rose food is also another factor. However, during the past 3-4 weeks, they have not only been producing a prodigious number of blooms, but they’ve grown over 6 feet in height!
As I gazed upon the unique orange blossoms, I thought that how easy it is to become inured to the beauty that is so close by somewhere. For a moment in time, all my personal thoughts faded into the background, and so did all the world’s tumultuous activity. Here it was just my consciousness taking in the beauty in front of me, and I became lost in a serenity that there are no words for.
Seems we take so much for granted these days, and most of us are so preoccupied that we just don’t really take in what is right at hand in our lives. It is one thing to look, it is quite another thing to actually see what it is we’re looking at. A mere thought about the to-do list, or a worry or three, and we are turning away from the miracle in front of us and exchanging it for another task, another obligation, and another round of problem solving. If you are an entrepreneur, most likely you live that experience 24/7, and barely come up for air. Marketing, tech hassles, virtual staff issues, grumpy clients…where does it end? When does the good life begin?
It can begin when we choose to slow down enough to take stock of ourselves, check and see if we’re occupying our body instead of hovering near it, and exercise our sovereignty diligently so we honor our own feelings and space to be as we are. Yes, I know…there are obligations a plenty. Working for a paycheck with a family to support during the upheavals of the past 17 months has been a grab bag of stress. Or perhaps you or someone you know has a health condition, or a psychological one. None of this we are experiencing is easy, and we can be so focused on survival mode that we overlook so much that there is to appreciate.
I have a very good book about spiritual seeking call “Doing Nothing” by Steven Harrison. It’s focus is on the modern quest for enlightenment and peace, but many of his perspectives could easily be applied to more mundane matters. The other book which I have not read, but recently ordered, is entitled “How to be Idle” by Tom Hodgkinson. The Puritan work ethic, or the work ethic imposed by a jealous God in the Old Testament (“…by the sweat of thy brow shall you earn your bread…”) set the human race on a high-stress path of exertion with a future promise of reward and comfort. The entire dogma of the Abrahamic religions is centered on a perfect hereafter, if we are all good boys and girls that is.
What is discouraged more today then ever before is that to be idle, or decide to withdraw from the Rat Race, is to be a reactionary. Someone who is anti-societal, and not to be trusted. For a raw example, read this recent article about loafing in China that appeared in the Guardian UK. In China it’s becoming a “thing” and they call it “lying flat”.
At this New Moon in Cancer take an inventory about your own life. Where do you over-commit? Where do you over-give? How do you cope with low grade anxiety or moments of high stress? Are you happy and peaceful, or anxious and fearful? Are you in your body, and loving your body, or not?
Here’s something to ponder - when there’s a lot of cortisol pumping through our bodies we are incapable of rational decision making. The cost for this is multi-dimensional too, and as Dr. Gabor Mate’s states, trauma or living with trauma is the single biggest cause for disease…period!
Your physical and psychic boundaries are yours to employ and maintain. No one else will do it for you. We are empowered, we are capable, and it is not selfish to be concerned with one’s own harmony and wellbeing. Slow down, breathe and look around. What do you see? There’s beauty within and without to appreciate. Remember it often.

Show Synopsis: On July 14th 1789 the starving and dispossessed citizenry of Paris, France rose up against the ruling class and feudal system. What followed over the next 4 years was a sincere effort to redress the grievances, but unfortunately a Committee for Public Safety was formed which instigated a Reign of Terror resulting in the arrest of 300,000 and over 25,000 deaths, including the king and queen.
Today we are immersed in an atmosphere of terror that is being orchestrated by a global committee for public safety - the medical establishment. The M. O. is fear. Asking questions is now discouraged, truths are being suppressed and censored, and individual liberties are being removed. If we are to grow beyond this moment and come out the other side, we will need to dig deep and call upon our courage. We can inspire many to actualize a new path for humanity. You and I are the Solution, and there are higher spiritual powers we can employ Time to recognize and claim that inner power. Through our courage and healing the Earth is renewed.
