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…

Calling all humans
By Isaac George
Oct 23rd, 2018
“Stars impel, they do not compel.” – Chaldean Astrology
Being human these days is almost becoming a revolutionary act. The Internet and social media always beckon, our devices and faith in technology tends to obscure the significance of our own biological landscape, and our quasi-divine origins. Enlightenment won’t be found anytime soon in a smartphone, or another meme.
From the astrological perspective, the Show Just Goes On…and on and on. Can’t stop it, or slow it down. If you try, it might just run you over. Tomorrow’s another Full Moon, but it’s more than that. The involved planets and the archetypes are mirroring our predicament, and sheds a big light on some possible solutions. As individuals and as a species our challenges are numerous and obvious. We ignore climate change, water scarcity, and environmental damage and destruction at our own risk. The potential for rapid personal growth and understanding are there too, but it most certainly is tempered by the sobering fact that everything and everyone has an influence on the whole…and vice versa.
The Full Moon is in Taurus and conjoined in the sky with the planet of Love and the Feminine = Venus. She’s in Scorpio and retrograded (turning focus inwards and investigative). Emotions will run high and deep right up to the Full Moon slated to occur at 3:49pm British Summer Time, and 6:49am Pacific Daylight Time. After the zenith of totality is past, the pressure cooker of the past two weeks will begin to lessen.
But wait, there’s more! (see chart below)
Venus is opposed by another retrograde powerhouse – Uranus in Taurus. Since Uranus entered the sign of the Bull in mid-May, he’s been stirring up the fires under the surface, resulting in major earthquakes, volcanic eruptions, climate events, and economic ones too. With it opposing Venus and the Moon, and conjunct the Sun at 1 degree of Scorpio, anything goes. It could trigger a surprise, a blessing, or a realization. Loving the Earth and the Natural World may become a sudden epiphany for some. Another manifestation might be a big correction in stock markets, or some ugly confrontation or dirty secret coming to light about the economy, politics, or the environment that may shock or surprise us.
Lastly the Full Moon and Uranus-Venus oppositions are squaring the Nodes of the Moon in Leo and Aquarius. This will activate the need to focus intensely on what is happening in the fullness of NOW! It is a lens through which we see the mistakes of the past and the way to move forwards into the future. With the South Node in Aquarius, it will be about revealing our deep memories of failed Utopian civilizations like Atlantis or Lemuria, and all the wounding and regret they engendered. With the North Node in Leo, it will be a last chance review about how courage, especially spiritual courage centered in the heart, will be the primary way to move forwards with the work there is to do in front of us.
The Nodes will change signs soon too…and move into Cancer and Capricorn in mid-November.
On a personal level relationships both past and current are lit up. So are the core issues karmic and otherwise that are related to our relationships, especially mother-father ones, and archetypal ones (God the Father?) All relating is undergoing pressures to evolve too, and Pluto (Scorpio) is certainly at play here with the Sun and Venus in that sign now.
In summary, no single celestial event has the power to change us. Only we have that within. With the calculations and archetypes involved, my take is that there is a clear message for tomorrow about how we are called to value our humanity more, to see it as truly divine and superior to our technologies. Our predilections, our foibles, even our most disastrous beliefs and mistakes, can’t obscure the potential for love, joy, humour and kindness that we are capable of. Our bodies are more than temples, and our lives are more than dust. We are stardust, and mud, and emotions. We are human beings.

The Big Deal
by Isaac George
May 20th, 2016
So much is happening now, all the time and in all manner of ways, that sometimes it seems that we would all be much better off of a planetary holiday was declared so that absolutely nothing was going to happen…at all, for maybe a week or two?
The reasons for this are not simply all explained away via astrology. I’ve always been fascinated with astrology, and it’s been running there parallel to all of my metaphysical and spiritual experiences and investigations since my mid-twenties. I never planned on becoming an astrologer. Then again, I never planned on a lot of what has happened in my life. Not…even…close.
Cue my ego shrugging and looking a bit lost
When it comes right down to it, what’s happening in these times is way bigger than that. In fact, it’s a big deal.
Astrology is a convenient language form, symbolic and metaphorical in nature, to describe an interactive process of consciousness between an individual’s soul memory (karma) and the 3D construct we are living in. There is also karma for groups of people, and nations too, but we’ll keep it simple for this example. If you were able to teleport to somewhere outside of the orbit of Pluto, your birth chart would no longer be of use. Your perceptual compass and framework would be drastically altered, and I dare say, so would your ideas about yourself and the local universe you’d inhabit. I would imagine that the same thing happens after we die. A completely new reference point is acquired.
What is pertinent right now is to recognize the increasing interest in the awareness of the masses about energy, astrology, spirituality, healing modalities and more. I feel this is directly proportional to a massive awakening process that was predicted in astronomical and astrological terms, i.e. the Mayan Calendar with its end date of December 21st, 2012, and other major indicators that show that we have already crossed the boundary, and are literally finding ourselves in a sort of borderland area between the old paradigm and one we haven’t entered as yet. There is always a lot of astrology happening, but the difference now is that more people are actually feeling these changes in their awareness, their emotions and even their physical bodies and local ‘reality’. And it is mighty stressful, exciting or downright confusing to many.
Some of this is due to the pace of life in modern competitive-based societies and the electronics in our environment. We may have uneasy feelings that our authorities or experts are at the end of their tether and really are pretty clueless. This all contributes to the general anxiety I hear about from clients and friends. It also contributes to the arising of many people who are the new leaders; those who either are setting the pace, or are in a preparatory stage to do so sometime in the near future.
Part of my knowing is that this seems to be a way for our planet, Gaia-Sophia, to get our attention. She is awake and shifting in response to a number of stimuli…or perhaps She is initiating it all deliberately! Global climate weirdness may be partly due to the destructive impact of our industrious missteps and technological blunders, but I feel that our Sun’s recent antics and the increasing incidence of the weakening of our planet’s magnetic field may also be playing a big part. There are simply too many influences and factors to take into account here, so I recommend you engage in your own research.
The difference between ‘now’ and 25 years ago is that while we are in this borderland state we are feeling like we have been stripped of a layer of ego insulation that kept us from feeling too much of it at any given moment. That’s changing…fast. We are no longer immune to feeling the collective space we are in, and that includes the animal, plant and mineral kingdoms…the entire biosphere! We are becoming more aware of boundaries and lack of boundaries. We are becoming more empathic, and it’s very disconcerting for the uninitiated. Reactionary behaviours are the response to unfamiliar emotions and unconscious material. There is a feeling of having less control, of free-floating ‘impendingness’ and it is not at all easy to cope with on some days. The invisible is becoming more and more relevant. This is the Big Deal. We are in it, and no kidding.
One primary arbiter of all of this energy, in astrobabble, is the planet Jupiter, and the sign of Virgo. The other is Mars and Saturn, both retrograde in Sagittarius. Jupiter is the super optimist, full of joy, exuberance and all manner of Sagittarian silliness. Virgo is all about Service, and its shadow compulsion is overthinking it all, and wearing a mask…keeping up appearances. Jupiter in Virgo might be a call to happy service, balanced with individuation into our True Nature. The opposite of Virgo is Pisces, the realm of compassion, dreams and endings. Its shadow compulsion is self-delusion and addictions. We’ve been use to 2,000 plus years of serving the ‘system’ and masking our deepest human instincts under religions based on self-sacrifice and hating our material connection to the Earth, the body. That paradigm is dying. That’s why there’s so much grieving under the surface. We feel our self-betrayal as personal…and it is! The internal promises we made to keep ourselves safe so we could be acceptable and not lose our tribe, our community, our beloveds, has cost so much to maintain. We can now begin to lay aside those burdens, and walk together as equals. But first, there are some old hurts to heal. This healing is underway beginning now, and extending into August and into September. This is the Mars-Saturn retrograde bit, covering the fields that Saturn was plowing through in 2014-15.
So I’ve got a suggestion just for a week or two. Avoid all extremes. Try not to force being positive, and try not to indulge too much in feeling overwhelmed or low. Feel into things, rather than ramming ahead with what you think is best for you. Try slowing down and asking for the guidance you need to come from inside you. Engage with your feelings and emotions; nurture your body, commune with nature or natural things as much as possible. Eat well…whatever feels right to you right now. Get sleep when you need it, even if it’s three in the afternoon. Limit watching network television. Take a break from trying to drown out the silence with your ear buds and iPod or other devices
Above all, ask for help.
Ask for hugs, a shoulder to cry on, or hand to hold. Ask whatever your idea of the Divine is for help, no matter what it is you are needing, and allow yourself to be provided for. Keep it simple. Don’t overthink this…okay?
Try it…take a vacation from the maelstrom. Ask to be shown a new way. Ask for a new deal.
Here’s a manifestation hint: Give away freely that which you need. Hugs, a shoulder for someone else to cry on, and friendly ear to give a listen. Money for the homeless one on the street. Let go of your expectations.
You don’t have to keep the cards that are in your hand just now. Lay those things down. You deserve better. Much more better. Ask for it…and remember this. You chose to be here now, to participate in the Big Deal, and you do deserve the very best, of everything. Drop your masks, drop your karma, and drop your resistance.
We’re all infinite beings in an infinite loving Cosmos and we are always safe.
Choose Life, every single time. No….matter…what.
With infinite love,

Truth or Consequences
October 25th, 2015
by Isaac George
There is another Super Duper Full Moon happening! I thought I could ignore the temptation to actually write about it. However, this momentary event isn’t the only bat banging around my belfry. There are many celestial alignments afoot, and as we move closer to All Hallows Eve (Halloween) we are coming into those influences one might call “the Astral” or Emotional Plane.
Our Sun has entered the realm of Scorpio, the home of raw and intense everything. Life, Death, Power and Passion, and all that comes with it - sexuality, obsession, compulsion, suspicion and great detective work to find secrets, and a penchant for secrets. The Full Moon will be in the polarity of Taurus, which is Fixed Earth and ruled by Venus (I just love chocolate chip cookies and woolly socks!). You get the idea don’t you? The focus on the surface is on security, cosy hearths, and a warm and well-stocked kitchen, and you have all the ingredients for domestic bliss. Or do you?
For you budding astrologers out there, the chart is posted below. Essential data is Sun is 3 degrees and 44 minutes of Scorpio and the Moon is at 3 degrees and 44 minutes of Taurus. The Moon will be inconjunct to Saturn at 3 degrees 35 minutes of Sagittarius, and the Sun will be semi-sextile to Saturn as well. The underlying theme from Saturn is “all that glitters may not be gold.” Truth or consequences indeed!
At first blush we may still be too hypnotized by the other significant energies that are upon us. The Venus-Jupiter communion at 15 Taurus may still have us lulled into a sense of altruism and congeniality. The easy trine to Pluto bespeaks a truce is in effect, but there are things that need attention.
The North and South Nodes (True Node method) are still virtually stationary at the Super Galactic Center degrees of 0 Aries and 0 Libra. Stuck there like a camera in the midst of a time lapse photo shoot, we are experiencing the drawing inwards of a huge dose of information that is laced in Light…directly from Headquarters in the center of our galaxy. This is the grist powering our mills…and it is filtered directly into our Soul Heart/Mind complex from the inside of us. From directly within our core identity it is pushing its way outwards, to our surfaces, like magma coming up through the Earth’s crust. As this occurs it is pushing ahead of it all of the karmic inertia from other lifetimes and genetic ancestral memories. Not pleasant for the most part, but a necessary clean-up is in progress in our cellular structures, emotional bodies, and etheric templates. The Full Moon in Taurus will be like a lightning rod, grounding these energies. It will be important to remind yourself that nothing is being done TO us, but is happening THROUGH us. If you’ve been twisting in the wind lately, don’t blame it on astrology, or the solar activity. Blame won’t work now…but compassion for self will, as well as compassion for the bystanders in your neighborhood…they’re mega challenged too (though they may deny it).
As we move closer to October 31st, there may be a few things pop up, or pop out, of those nearest to us. Or, they may pop out of us. This is a ripe time for folks to deliberately or inadvertently “spill the beans” about how they REALLY feel about this, that or so-and-so. There also could be a high degree of existential free-floating anxiety about money, resources, job, career, the economy in general or, if you live in the UK, uncomfortable thoughts of revenge against Chancellor Osborne. It may be essential to remove breakable items from the vicinity. There is very little diplomacy under Scorpio – it wants to say what it wants to say, to speak the power for Truth, or Truth to Power. However things turn out, we are sick and tired of bullying in any form, and as anyone will tell you, the best way to deal with a bully is to stand up to him/her. Perhaps this tyrant resides within you, telling you you’re not good enough, worthy enough or capable enough. Well, enough is enough, and with this energy around, you’ll feel a bit more than ready to slay a dragon or two. The secret is to voice your truth without attacking the antagonist. This takes consciousness. We were all bullied as children, in one sense or another, so we all have that brainwashing to contend with. The perps who did it were themselves also victims of it, so don’t spend any time in the blame game here either. This is our chance to stand for something, and it’s okay to be a wee bit selfish about it.
The consequences are always with us, no matter what the situation or how old it might be. Consequences could also be called “outcomes”, as they are the experience that reflects our attitudes, beliefs and unconscious habits. Nothing more, and nothing less, is needed to describe the effects of choice. How we choose to be responsible, or to be able to respond, sets the groundwork for a new type of outcome. Here’s the tricky part, where you don’t have “control”. In any of what I’m describing above, the resonance or vibrational factor for aligning any experience you consciously choose to replace one that has been unconscious is, for the most part, an act of surrender. Yep, you got to let it go so it can come back to you in the manner that is most appropriate. That’s also the easy part, because as a microcosm of the macrocosm, there is very little chance that what you want or need the most, what is most important for you, could happen if you were trying to micromanage it from your ego.
One of the great parts about Scorpio energy is passion, with a capital “P”. I recall seeing the key phrase for Scorpio being “I Desire”. That about sums it up…I want what I want…and I want it now!
So for the balance of time that the Sun is in Scorpio, getting juicy about whatever floats your boat is full on, or should be. However, there’s a minor fly in the soup. Although Saturn just left Scorpio in September, as I write this we are experiencing the echo of when Saturn entered Scorpio three years ago. In fact, on October 25th, 2012 the Sun and Saturn met up at 2 degrees of Scorpio, only two degrees away from Tuesday’s Full Moon. Coincidence? Never! Only the appearance of coincidence as Carl Jung would say. There is a good chance that any prior wounding involving sexuality could be "up" just now, which is an opportunity to heal violations of trust and stolen innocence.
So, our passion needs to be guided by a higher notion in all of our dealings. I Desire balanced with I Love. That’s Taurus’ ruler, Venus, speaking ladies and gentlemen. True love with passion can heal. Passion without love is deadly, Love without Passion is bland. Stop settling for bland and safe, and stop being sucked into passion without consideration for your heart... and more importantly, your Soul.
Well anyway, that’s my take on it right now.. We are called to feel everything deeply…that’s the Pluto side of Scorpio. Use this time wisely.
Be gentle in your courage, be considerate in your truth-telling, and be compassionate with the consequences. We are here to hold another up when they cannot do it themselves. The next one needing that support may be you. May Love lead us. All is well.
