State of the Planet Update:
Completion and a New Beginning – Full Moon in Aquarius, Sunday, August 22nd 2021
By Isaac George
August 19th, 2021
Well, I’m back…sort of. Technically still on sabbatical until Monday, August 23rd, but there are too many things popping that need some attention. The main one is the upcoming second Full Moon in Aquarius in less than a month. It bookends with the one that occurred on July 23rd at the 1st degree of Aquarius. This Sunday, the 22nd of August, the second one will be at the 29th degrees of Leo and Aquarius. The famous (or infamous) Anaretic degrees are compelling moments in any astrology timeline.Here’s an excerpt from The Dilemma of the 29th DEGREE: Thor’s Hammer or a Cornucopia? by Eileen Nauman, DH(UK):
“Astrologers know that from 0 through 28 degrees, we, as individuals, have ample opportunity to work on our stuff, work through it and change it. “Work” is defined here as our emotional and toxic wounds that we’ve accrued usually through childhood or in our twenties. And they have to be healed. In other words, we have choice. And since we are down here to grow, the 29th degree is around to ensure that we do what is needed for ourselves–even if we don’t want to do it for a host of reasons (fear, lack of confidence, lack of faith in ourselves, etc.). The 29th degree is there to ensure we WILL do it. Or, if we’ve been running away from a lot of emotional garbage that we’ve refused to own–well guess what? It’s all going to come back to haunt you in that 29th degree.
The 29th degree from a medical astrology standpoint is a loaded keg of emotional toxic ‘dynamite’ that has been ignored for some time, even decades, and it’s sitting there ready to explode. When we have suppressed or repressed emotions, this will translate over time into actual physical, mental or emotional dis-ease.”
That’s Eileen just getting warmed upon the subject of the Anaretic degrees…
“Of course, people have free will choice and if they elect not to try and heal their own wound, they ignore it. [For example] they can ignore Saturn transits from 0 to 28 degrees of that sign. However, when it hits the 29th degree, that person is going to have the Cosmic Hammer come down on him or her. The 29th degree is a last-ditch attempt to draw the person or experience to this individual so they can get to work on discharging the toxicity they’re carrying inside themselves. And so, calamity hits this person with a sledgehammer. It can be a loss of a job, the spouse wanting a divorce, having to move to another state or country, the death of a spouse or child or parent. And the list goes on…but the list of things that can happen are life changing for that individual. And that’s the power of the 29th degree coming in and confronting the individual who doesn’t want to do the work for whatever the reason. No reason, frankly, is worth avoiding our own wounding. If we drew that wound in this incarnation, it’s up to us to work through it. In working through it, we learn, grow and mature and yes, perhaps even evolve, because of our efforts.”
Now I know that you who are reading this may not have any particularly sensitive points in your own soul blueprint (birth chart) for this incarnation, but that doesn’t mean one is totally out of the woods. You and I share in the collective awareness of the soul of humanity and of the planet, so we are not immune to the knock-on effects that that can have in our personal spheres. That said, this Full Moon is akin to an initiation…for the whole human race.
The little-known dwarf planet Sedna is currently also at the 29th Degree of Taurus and is being squared by the Sun and Moon at 29 Leo and Aquarius this Saturday. Some say that Sedna represents the soul’s destiny and has a hand in illumination and new consciousness. Sedna’s orbital path takes over 11,000 years to complete one revolution around our Sun, and she is way out there beyond the orbit of Pluto, so that last time Sedna was parked at the last degree of Taurus was at the end of the last Ice Age. Sedna was a goddess of the sea and intuitive feelings that belongs to the Inuit Indians of the Arctic regions.
She entered Taurus in 1965, just as the USA civil rights movement, the Vietnam War, and the rise of the hippie era all commenced. A big shifting in human consciousness to be sure! It’s also worth mentioning that Uranus and Pluto had just entered the element of Earth just about the same time when they both conjoined in Virgo. Sedna enters Gemini in 2024, around the same time that Pluto enters Aquarius. Sedna in Taurus could be one of the factors in the rise of the digital age since 2003, but when she gets into Gemini, it might signal a new rising of human consciousness, but one not tied to artificial intelligence or binary sciences.
At the unconscious level Sedna can represent victimization, illness, alienation, trauma, and suffering. At the conscious level she can foster profound acceptance, including of how bad things currently are, transcendence, keeping one’s heart open no matter what, and having a sense of humour.
With the Sun and Moon underpinning the archetypes of Leo and Aquarius, and squaring Sedna, I feel that we are being offered an initiation. One that can work best if we consciously choose to fully individuate into our sovereign truthful selves, while realizing and cultivating our innate spiritual connection to the elements, especially water (feelings) and earth (the body). This will be the choice point offered: evolved humanity not dependent or enslaved to digital technology, and a groundswell of consciousness opening not only to the higher cosmic influences, but also the divine influence right under our feet…and our noses!
Finally, in summary, allow me to offer the last part of Eileen Nauman’s brilliant essay on the 29th Degree:
THE CORNUCOPIA SIDE TO THE 29TH DEGREE:
“There is a positive side to the 29th degree as I wrote earlier. Think of it as a cornucopia of goodies just waiting to be given to you. If you have done all your homework on yourself and done your best to discharge your toxic dump of emotions, then the 29th degree will leave you alone. Instead, something “nice” will happen to you instead. It might be a time of joy spent with your grandchildren, your friends, or relatives. Or you attend a workshop that inspires you. Perhaps you sign up for creative schooling, such as painting, learning to write or learn to dance. It can be a simple as a wonderful lunch with a friend or a warm phone call from someone you love. Or it could be big, like a raise, a new job, a book being sold, being rewarded monetarily or in many other ways. It will be a ‘lull’ in having to always do your inner work. It’s Cosmic Gift Time, instead. A pat on the head by the Cosmos that you’ve done the dirty work and succeeded. Then, the 29th degree becomes a time of well-earned happiness in your life. And, as always, the choice of how we want to deal with the 29th degree is ours!”
The biggest issue of the day boils down to the fact that what is transpiring on the planet these last 2 years is only made possible by our immersion into the dreamspell of the digital domain. There is a simile to hypnosis and collective groupthink underway, exacerbated by the Saturn in Aquarius transit that promotes the group over individuation. True spirituality is about individuation of divine consciousness in the human experience. The mystic Edgar Cayce was asked during one of his trance sessions to describe Christ Consciousness. His reply was “to know thyself to be thyself, yet one with All That Is.”
Our task, as I see it defined in reflection of Sunday’s Full Moon in Aquarius, is to define who you are not by what the crowd says you should be, but who you really are and how true to that you will be. We are all being tested and testing ourselves. Let us rise to the occasion and say choose non-compliance with anything that offends our soul and spirit, and say yes to that which is sourced in love, truth, wisdom, empathy, the spirit of cooperation, and harmony with All That Is.
So be it!!
On the next episode on my “Revealing the Mysteries” radio program I have Renee S. LeBeau, back again for Part Two of “Acoustic Alchemy. We will be talking with her about her newest album release, “Sophianic Symphony”, which is being debuted on the program and coincides with the Full Moon in Aquarius. Potent times indeed! Hope you can join us.
To listen live on Sunday, August the 22nd, just use this link (show details below):

As always, I am at your service as a mentor, and astrotherapist to assist you in understanding your position in the Big Story of Life and letting go of the little story.
I will be accessing and reviewing emails during my holiday, so please email me if you’re needing assistance. Just click here for an opportunity to discuss what sort of guidance, healing and support you long for.
Synopsis: In this episode we welcome Renee S. LeBeau back to the show. She’s here to share with us about her new creative release, which happens on this very day, of a new and quite remarkable album, entitled “Sophianic Symphony”. The word “Sophianic” is derived from the name of the Gnostic Goddess of Wisdom, Sophia. According to the ancient mystics, Sophia IS the planet Earth…or the planet as a direct emanation of Her divine beingness. The mystic traditions also ascribe the creation of all Nature and humanity to this luminous Aeon of organic Light. The album is therefore also a direct emanation through Renee’s field of being and awareness from Sophia. The instruments she is playing are being played through her while also maintaining a human element. A vast spaciousness surrounding her playing is beautifully captured in the tones of various acoustic instruments and vocalizatons by Renee. The recording also captures the ambient space which contains frequencies above and beyond the range of normal hearing. Join us…and feel the homecoming via sound.

State of the Planet Update - 2021 Summer Solstice / Cancer The Chart of the World
by Isaac George
June 18th, 2021
"This is what you shall do; Love the earth and sun and the animals, despise riches, give alms to everyone that asks, stand up for the stupid and crazy, devote your income and labour to others, hate tyrants, argue not concerning God, have patience and indulgence toward the people, take off your hat to nothing known or unknown or to any man or number of men, go freely with powerful uneducated persons and with the young and with the mothers of families, read these leaves in the open air every season of every year of your life, re-examine all you have been told at school or church or in any book, dismiss whatever insults your own soul, and your very flesh shall be a great poem..."
~ Walt Whitman
I feel, therefore I am. This is the mantra for Cancer, the Cardinal sign in the Zodiac for Water. Our bodies made up of 60% or more of water, as is our planet. In a channelling I did ages ago, a source postulated that water is Goddess Consciousness made visible. That is to say, the supernal Light of Consciousness becomes embodied in as water in a 3rd dimensional level. It permeates everything and carries the spark of atomic and biological Life.
The blood flowing through our veins is just another type of water. Water is the main component in the constitution of the atmospheric envelope around this planet, and miraculously this planet is perfectly positioned to the Sun to sustain organic Life. Whenever astrophysicists encounter a planetary body that has even a smidgeon of water on it, then it is cause for celebration because it could support LIFE!
On Monday, June 21st, at approximately 3:33am UT (4:33am BST) the position of our Sun will ingress into the sign of Cancer. The Moon will be at 9 degrees of Scorpio, which will add to the intensity of this Solstice moment, technically the longest day of light in the Northern Hemisphere. Everything becomes more visible as it were, and things and situations will stand out more. The very next day at 22:00 UT, Mercury will station direct in Gemini. It will already be at a standstill at the time of the Solstice. What happens next is that the truth will out. About quite a few things. A seminal moment in coming to grips with the Zeitgeist we have been living through for 18 months.
The archetype of Cancer it represents cuddly stuff. Warmth, protection, nurturing, childbearing and child-rearing, fecundity (in a polite sort of way), and Mother. She also is the Goddess aspect of Divine Mother. But you do not want to see Mama upset, cause if Mama is not happy, ain't nobody happy. The shadow side of Cancer (Capricorn) can be smothering instead of mothering, being told what to do because it is for your own good you know, and passive-aggressive control tendencies.
However, with the Solstice, the strongest intuition is to connect with Consciousness as expressed in bodily form. Spirit AS the Body. No boundaries, no separation, no distinction. God/Goddess as your essence and form.
Our innate body sense is often ignored in favour of the mind, and both end up suffering. We innately KNOW what is right and correct, and if we go against that with our logic, we will not have an incredibly happy time of it. This has recently been brought home to me on a personal level. If we do not listen, and nurture, and harmonize, our bodies will reflect the disjointed or stressed-out state of our mind and emotions.
On a more expansive scale, we can be aware that this is exactly what the planetary biosphere is doing. Nature is telling us something is wrong, and doing so without blame or judgment, but with an urgency that seems to say; “you can no longer ignore these conditions…either within you or without you.”
Nurture is Nature…and is our nature. We ignore this at our peril. To nurture our thoughts towards a more loving way may be found in observing how Nature provides unequivocally for all creatures and living things. Yes, that reflects what Jesus is reported to have said; “behold, the lilies of the field, how they neither spin nor sow…” and other metaphors like that.
During a walk recently I stood at a fence overlooking a meadow that was filled with wild plants and flowers and watched as hundreds of bees of all types were busily moving from flower to flower. In the space of a few minutes, I could telepathically and emotionally feel what was transpiring. Nature was nurturing the bees, and in turn Her plants were benefiting. In short order, I was suddenly part of the natural order. Observing yet participating. To my surprise I discovered that there were tears on my cheeks. I came to realize that what is transpiring in the world of humans has no power as great as what I was briefly part of in this moment. None.
Our species seems to have stepped so far away from the relationship that could so nurture and educate us. The opportunity on Monday is to pause and connect with the twin energies of Sun and Mother Earth. An opportunity to remember, and to embrace this deepest of truths: we are loved, we are looked after (if we permit it), and there is a compassionate order that abides in Nature.
What shall we do with this moment, and the ones to follow? How then shall we live? Please re-read the words of Walt Whitman that this post began with for some inspiration. Examine closely what you value, and where you store up your riches. The key is surrendering into the unknown while following your Nature, by being as real as you can be. Sounds like a tall order. Maybe it is. But that is what the little mind will always tell you. Time to listen to deeper wisdoms and be nurtured from the bosom of the mother.
Blessings on your journey and with lots of love,

Recently I viewed a short documentary film of the amazing testimony of Mr. Eric (Slowhand) Clapton, one of the world’s foremost electric blues guitarist, in which Eric recounts his decision to have the Covid jabs, and what happened in the wake of that choice. During the interview his light was shining, his love and caring towards family and friends very evident. He spoke about not being informed of the potential harm these jabs can cause, and now risks his reputation and career by advising others to avoid them. This Summer Solstice is the marker for the “Chart of the World” when the Sun enters the sign of Cancer, which is about nurturing, motherly love, and protection. We are being called to look within and find and hold onto a vision of that Love, to not lose sight of our humanity, and to seek to provide comfort to everyone who asks us for it. Eric courageously reached out and was met by a compassionate audience ready to support and listen. May we all be so courageous, and compassionate.

the State of the Planet Update
by Isaac George
May 14th, 2021
Back on September 11th, 2001 I was sleeping peacefully at my lover’s home in Eugene, Oregon. In a moment we were abruptly awakened by the phone ringing. She picked it up and her face turned to horror as a friend back in Virginia alerted us to the attacks on the World Trade Center complex in New York City. As she listened, he told her about the collapse of the South Tower as it happened before his eyes. In my head, I heard the words “It’s all a setup…do not lapse into fear.” We got up, showered quickly and dressed, and headed over to my house to watch thing unfold on my roommate’s big screen television.
Watching the constant reruns of the towers going down, hearing the chatter between reporters and cameramen and the hosts in various newsrooms, I could not shake the feeling that I was being brainwashed. After two hours, the numbness and shock set in, and we could not watch another moment. My senses were in overwhelm and I felt assaulted. I had to go out into Nature to regain my bearings. After much reflection and quiet, I restored my connection to my inner guidance and to that place in Universal Love that let me know that everything was okay.
Shortly afterwards I had to fly back to Virginia to conduct a mystery school workshop, and I was able to go to the airport, and fly on a mostly empty jet to the East Coast. Nothing got to me during that journey or the one back. The searches and pat downs, the automatic weapons being carried by guards in the airport…none of mattered to me. Of course, I did not believe the official story for one second and I knew that like the JFK event, this was an engineered act. After all, my inner voice confirmed that within seconds of my knowledge of 9/11 happening. I was saddened by the loss of life that day, and I knew that many more would lose their lives in the aftermath. I could not prevent any of what happened, nor what was to come. However, I also would not allow myself to be shifted from that solid ground of my own spirit.
In the middle of March of 2020, we all experienced a new 9/11, but one that would reverberate around the planet. After JFK, MLK, RFK, the Vietnam War (almost got sent over), Gulf War 1, 9/11, the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq, the shock of Brexit and Trump, and now Covid-19, it has been one step up of chaos fear each time. Now the ‘enemy’ is supposedly and invisible one. Well, that is metaphorically closer to the mark than most realize, but that is also a discussion for another time. Today, I wish to focus on what we can do, indeed must do, to mitigate this irrational blanket of fear and the division it fosters. We need to find and cultivate the reminders that this world is not a dangerous place, that we do have a choice in how we wish to feel about our lives, and we also have a choice to empower ourselves so that we do not succumb to the merchants of fear.
The first place to begin is the issue of trust. This is tied to self-empowerment in significant ways. Do you trust yourself? Do you trust in God-Goddess-Creator-Universe? Do you trust your own body and the divine intelligence within it? Do you trust Nature? Did you know that there is a world ‘out there’ that is unaffected by the headlines? Trust is the cornerstone. When I was channelling, AA Ariel use to bang on about faith. “Faith is the science of knowing. If you know you are safe, that you are loved, that you are more powerful and creative than your ego mind would have you believe, then you would joyfully live a life of risk. You would know that you are eternal, even if the body and personality is not. Know that and you are free.” She was not advocating blind faith, but a faith anchored in the realm of the Absolute. I like that, and always have.
Those who are in deep fear these days have forgotten these principles, these foundational truths. They trust the science they say, but science is an imperfect set of postulates and theories, most of which arose from a study of biology and chemistry based on a mechanistic perception of Nature. Nature is not a machine, but machine-based intellects will always see that and nothing more. Your body is living physical evidence of the holographic energetic signature of your soul and its extensive combined experiences with others and the Universe at large. We are “integral” with the fabric of Creation, not mere objects in space observing what is happening, or thinking it is all happening to us or because of us. It is both/and!
I recommend looking past the appearances of the current theatre of chaos and spend a bit of time with the beauty of your own being, the beauty in Nature, the wonder of the stars above (try to ignore those satellites) and look with awe at the tiniest of creatures that are out in your garden or the woods living and loving no matter what calamities seem to be unfolding in the human drama. I am not saying to ignore what has been happening, but to make a clear space away from it on a regular basis so that you might begin to trust Life, your life, and this entire experience we are living through. As improbable as this may sound, ultimately you and I chose to be here at this time.
Beauty may be in the eye of the beholder, but it is also a quality that stands on its own and does not depend on our observation. Desiring to see beauty even in adversity, will help us to manage what it is we are all doing. We all yearn for a better experience. Perhaps it is not so far-fetched to imagine re-visioning and re-creating the Earth as a Paradise, and new Eden. By the way, that is the theme of my next ‘Revealing the Mysteries’ radio show this Sunday. See the details below for that.
Finally, we are not ever alone. Prayer does work, and as the call for aid and understanding goes out it is always answered back in some form. Since we do not know what we do not know, a beginner’s mind and childlike trust is essential. It also helps to be as wise as an owl, so we never allow ourselves to have that trust abused ever again.
Until next week, when I share what I feel the Total Lunar Eclipse in Sagittarius is about, onwards in love and…

Times of crisis are like novel super-learning curves. They just will not leave us alone…or so it seems. I myself, possibly you, and the world at large appears to be suffering inside a nightmare that has no apparent end. Not all is lost however, we still have access to something beyond the noise and discord.
Step with me into an hour of immersion with Source Consciousness and Sophia the Planetary Wisdom Goddess, dreaming things into being through love and magic…allowing ourselves to drop our shoulders, drop our defences and once again remind ourselves that we are never alone in any struggle. Reminding ourselves of how divine our humanity is. We no longer can afford to place our sovereign natures into the hands of external authority, no matter how well-intentioned it appears to be.
If we want a new world, a new Eden, we will have to stand up for it. However, it begins with where our alignment rests. If that is sitting with fear and anxiety, then that will be our experience. If we select beauty, awe, and connection, then anything can be possible. Even a new Eden. Let us play!

Well, it is Earth Day once again. State of the Planet Update time…for sure!
Well, it is Earth Day once again. State of the Planet Update time…for sure!
I was hoping to express a lot more in this blog, but my week has been taken up with some tasks which preludes me from being able to pen a lengthy article about today.
This morning members of Extinction Rebellion smashed the windows out of the entrance to the main HQ of HSBC. Then, they all sat down and waited for the police. None of them were arrested. HSBC has invested $110 billion in fossil fuels during the past decade.
HSBC is the same bank that is under regulatory scrutiny following the revelations that they were laundering money for Mexican drug cartels. Business as usual hates the climate change movement. Capitalism is the engine of ecocide. And yet, very few of us can pause to consider how addicted we are to the two precepts of capitalist philosophy – eternal growth and profits. Infinite growth on a planet with finite resources is simply not possible.
We are not only running out of fossil fuels and a viable ecosystem and we are also running out of excuses. Thinking “some one else will fix it” will not work. There is assistance available to help us solve this, but it will be most viable if it is in conscious partnership with Spirit, with the Planet, and not just some band-aid approach that will allow us to continue in the life we have been accustomed to. A new vision will be necessary. Some of us may have to consider withdrawing from "business as usual" in order to honor a higher purpose. Some of may have to put our action where our words are and stand in the path of the machine. The image of one man standing in front of a row of tanks during the Tiananmen Square massacre comes to mind.
This is one of the themes of the powerful Full Moon in Scorpio (Sun in Taurus) this coming Sunday and Monday. Uranus and Venus meet in Taurus, and right after the Full Moon, the Sun joins Uranus, and Pluto turns retrograde in Capricorn, until October 6th, 2021. During this retrograde we get to review the past 7 months during which Pluto was direct and let go of anything that no longer applies to our sense of separation. Pluto represents the World Soul, and ego death. Prepare for some personality funerals…on a mass scale. Meanwhile, Uranus and Saturn will stimulate our sense of which tribe we want to be part of. The transhuman one, or the organic one.
I will be addressing some of the main points in my next “Revealing the Mysteries” radio program this Sunday, so tune in then, or to the replay. In the meantime, enjoy celebrating Earth Day, and make each day a reason to be in gratitude for this planet, and also resolve to partner with Her, and stand with Her. Make every day be an Earth Day.
Blessings on your journey,
Coming up this Sunday on "Revealing the Mysteries" on KindaSound Community Radio
"DEEP HEALING WITH NATURE ~ FULL MOON IN SCORPIO,
APRIL 26th-27th 2021"
Since the advent of computer-in-your-pocket, humanity has been crossing into the Twilight Zone into a more disembodied state than has ever existed before…without dying first. For the past year, that situation has grown, as more of us have been forced to extend our time in front of screens and existing in a lower digital astral control grid, just to make a living, or stay in touch with loved ones. Is this the fallout of a real medical emergency, or an opportune moment for creating an unconscious dependency on electronic technology, surveillance, and external authority? What does it mean to be a human animal?
How can we repatriate our consciousness with our bodies, and to remember how to trust Nature again? It will require an effort to turn away from the artificial environment being erected all around us and is subsuming us. This Full Moon is just such an opportune time for this. In this episode I will explain why, offer tips for protection, and advice for recalibrating our animal and divine selves for greater peace, and resiliency.
