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,

"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.

“I can't believe you people. I come for you, and you want to stay, I let you stay and you want to go!” – Death, from “Meet Joe Black”
Death…and Taxes. Sometimes paying taxes feels like a dying…like some precious life blood was being taken from you by force, or at least without your enthusiastic cooperation.
The 21 grams. The anomaly of how much lighter a human corpse is after the us that is “us” has vacated, and gone…where?
Ever wonder why it is that most people don’t have a single memory of where they were before their birth? Stranger still, how many can remember their last death, their last life prior to that death, or what came after. Can you remember, or know anyone who can? And, if you did, how can you tell if what it is you’re remembering is true, accurate, infallible?
I read a book a long time ago entitled “What Dream May Come” by Richard Matheson. Yes, it was made into to film later, starring Robin Williams, but that came 20 years after I read it. In the Introduction, Matheson wrote this: “To the Reader…

The most predominant of human needs is to hope for something better, something ineffable and to feel like we are moving forward so we may eventually arrive at some point in the future that will at least feel arriving at a sort of completion, a coming home as it were. It’s in-built in us, part of our nature. And very altruistically we long for everyone else to have this experience. Well, most of us anyway. The inverse or ego-inflation of this impulse manifests itself in all manner of sociopathic and psychopathic behaviours and events, some of which are so horrific, that we call them senseless, and indeed they are without sense in every respect of the word. How do we reconcile the distortion of this lofty impulse with our better nature? How do we try to understand what this world is really all about?
This has been a momentous few weeks, and indeed most of the action has been over the past 7 days. New Moon on Monday-Tuesday at 27 degrees of Aries, with powerful Uranus joining the party. Then Saturn turns Retrogade in Capricorn, followed by Chiron leaving Pisces, where it’s been since April 20th, 2010, and entered Aries. Since I now view evolutionary astrology as something we are both observing and influenced by, and also as something we are collectively participating in creating, the ramifications of the phenomenon is intriguing, and as many are experiencing, challenging and somewhat disruptive. Even with Pluto also now slowing down and stationing prior to going Retrograde this Sunday, it is still the issue of Chiron moving from Pisces to Aries that is dominating. Here’s why...

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,

Special Full Moon in Cancer on Christmas Day Message
Although I did say recently that I wouldn’t be writing so many blogs from a purely astrological perspective (when have I ever?), tomorrow’s Full Moon and the energies surrounding it are worth a few words at least.
I have mixed feelings about tomorrow’s Christmas, and here’s why. Personally, it touches me where I live in my own chart in significant ways. It also will be making an impact in the charts of loved ones, friends and clients I have. Because Cancer is THE archetype that deals with emotions, feelings, love and nurturing, there’s really no hiding from the vibrations of the Moon in Cancer – which is raw emotion and the need for security all rolled into one teary-eyed little ball. So, I started to look at the chart for tomorrow…and began to see a pattern. If you have your chart, look for anything in the Cardinal signs (Aries, Libra, Cancer or Capricorn) between 1 and 6 degrees of sensitivity.
You see, I’m really into how things form patterns, and I’ve always been really good with details and also with seeing the big picture those details form. When the big pictures arrange themselves to reveal a pattern, it is telling me there’s a message from Consciousness that is worth paying attention to. I may not quite grasp what the message is at first, but eventually it does reveal itself in some outward event or inward revelation.
This is the first Full Moon on Christmas Day since 1977, and so I began my pattern investigation there. Sun was at 3 degrees and 37 minutes of Capricorn, and the Moon at the same in Cancer. Tomorrow’s Full Moon is at 3 degrees and 19 minutes of Cancer, and the Sun at the same degree in Capricorn. As an added kick, tomorrow’s Lunation is at 11:11am. Take that for what you will…but it is a humdinger of a master number. The other two major factors that act as bookends is the Winter Solstice of three days ago, and the planet Uranus stationing to move direct at 16 degrees of Aries this Sunday. I’ll have more to say on Uranus in a moment or three.
I’ve attached three charts to this blog. One is for the Full Moon tomorrow (remember, at 3 degrees and 19 minutes of Cancer-Capricorn). The other two are also Full Moons, and both are Lunar Eclipses. For the first Lunar Eclipse of September 28th this year, we have Sun at 4 degrees and 40 minutes of Libra, and the Moon at the same degree in Aries. Next March 23rd, 2016, there will be another Lunar Eclipse in Aries-Libra, with this one 3 degrees and 17 minutes of those signs. Can you see one of the patterns forming yet? Those Sun - Moon degrees are pretty darn close to the ones for tomorrow's chart, just in the other two Cardinal signs.
The reason that I titled this blog Christmas Cross is based on simple geometry. Whenever there is a Full Moon, or Lunar Eclipse, the Sun and Moon are opposing each other. This then forms a cross at 90 degree angles in the sky that are defined by two vacancies. In this case, the other two Cardinal signs in Fire and Air – Aries and Libra. Oppositions of planetary bodies create dynamic tension…a call to balance something. When it’s the Sun and Moon, something is brought to light, or to awareness, so that an evolutionary choice can be made. With Lunar Eclipses, the effects can last six months or even a little longer. We are still under the influence of the September 28th Lunar Eclipse at 4 Aries and 4 Libra. So, in a very unique way, tomorrow’s Full Moon is Phase 2 in a set of three Lunations involving the Cardinal Signs.
My point being, we are in a pattern unfolding in time/space.
In traditional astrology Cancer represents the nurturing Mother, and Capricorn the responsible Father. That this Full Moon is falling on Christmas Day, and near a Pagan holiday (Solstice) is significant on its own. We may take advantage of such energies to bolster our sense of all the things that Cancer and the 4th House represent: Family, home, hearth, belonging and traditions. Opposing this in a balancing act, is Capricorn, which embodies our work in the world, how we are responsible in our society, tribe or social grouping, and how we are seen, or would like to be seen, by others and peers. While Cancer-Capricorn may be seen to be inclusive in a quasi-collective way, Aries and Libra are ultimately a more personal game. It’s me, and it’s you...the Other.
The patterns I wish to bring to your attention are that tomorrow’s Full Moon will have a definite feel-good factor, at least on the surface. Underneath, all manner of review and revelation may be going on. Review of beliefs based on emotional decisions in the past. Or sentimental attachments we haven’t acknowledged before, and we npw may see them in a new light, and maybe they just don’t work for us like they once did. Disillusionment may creep in amongst the presents, egg nog and tinsel. It may be the holiday of Christmas itself that will be seen as possibly outworn and superficial. Perhaps we need a new understanding about why we gather together to ward off the darkest and shortest day of the year, then as the ancient pagans did, uncork the darkness with feasts, torchlight and merriment to celebrate the return of the Sun’s light and longer days. Perhaps, just perhaps, our modern Christmas just isn’t doing it for us anymore.
For some of us the Christmas holidays have been challenging. Our interpersonal interactions with relatives or spouses have been an occasional battleground. I remember well how a minor argument in the kitchen became a major funk over the dinner table. Hurts can go deep this time of year. For others who have no family to be with, there are immense loads of grief and depression to deal with. There can be a longing for the warmth of family, no matter what slights weren’t pardoned in the past. We have a deep need to belong, and tomorrow’s Full Moon will highlight that significantly.
The Sabian Symbol for the Moon tomorrow at 4 Cancer is: "A CAT ARGUING WITH A MOUSE"
KEYNOTE: An attempt at self-justification. We are still involved in the results of an act which brought about a radical reorientation of one's life. The drives of the bio-psychic organism are still not easily conquered. A multitude of lesser decisions inevitably follows the big and grand gestures of repudiation and realignment. The desires of the body still drown the voice of the "new man." One argues with oneself, hoping to convince oneself that the old impulses are still legitimate. (from The Astrological Mandala)
True, this argument may occur entirely in the heads of some folks tomorrow, but what it points to is the triggers from the Sept.28th Lunar Eclipse (How I see Self and Other) and the one coming up in March 2016....triggers about responsibility (or obligations), lovableness, and self worth. This trinity of lunations is designed to help us see the unconscious patterns based on beliefs that we have held about ourselves, our relationships, families and societies. In fact, many are actually inherited perspectives that are perhaps no longer viable for our evolution, whether individually or collectively. What’s also worth noting is that in the September 28th chart, the Moon is in Aries, and the Sun is in Libra. In the March 23, 2016 chart, they are reversed, with the Moon in Libra, and the Sun in Aries. Patterns everywhere.
There are some other aspects that support the Full Moon setup, most of them positive, but other astrologers have gone over those in detail already, so I won’t do that here.
Now for the last element…
Uranus will be sitting still (stationary) from at precisely 4:11am UT on Christmas morning until he leaves the starting gate precisely 48 hours later at 4:11am UT on December 27th. He is the first present to be spotted under the Yule tree. A planet stationary, either before the beginning of a retrograde cycle or at the end of one, is at its most potent level. Uranus has been retrograde since July 27th. All that energy of liberation of the Self has been directly inwardly…creating a head of steam. At 16 degrees plus of Aries, Uranus will now be within two degrees of transiting Pluto, in a square configuration we’ve known since early 2012. This will get tighter in early January.
As always, I have no idea what may happen with Uranus in this mix, as Uranus will always surprise, but never disappoints. Something’s got to give, and Uranus is the instigator of change. From a purely positive perspective, this will be like a rocket igniting, so take full advantage of the time between the 27th of Dec. and January 6th when Mercury goes retrograde to use your imagination to envision your dreams, goals and aspirations! And, let them go just as quickly, because you won’t know what can happen until you do let them go. Uranus isn’t sentimental…he create changes. He evolutionizes!
In summary, I would say that there is every possibility that Christmas will come off without a hitch. Everyone will be satisfied, or not. The question for you, my readers, is what you base real fulfilment on. Is it someone else’s idea of what you should be, do or have? Or is it yours? Unwrapping the present of your real and true dreams and hopes may be the best gift you get this year.
To those most dear to my heart, and to all my friends and clients, I sincerely wish you all loads of happiness, peace, health, wisdom, prosperity and joy both now, and in the year ahead.
