(Authenticity is the New Currency)
By Isaac George
Feb. 15th, 2016
“Be yourself. Everyone else already exists.” - Unknown
What does authenticity mean to you? Do you endeavour to just be yourself in your business or personal life? Or do you struggle with an inner and outer persona, and strategize how you wish to appear in your work or career? Do you hide how you really feel because of what others might think?
“For me the word authenticity only has real weight if a person is fully in touch with their feelings. To own one’s feelings and to show them fearlessly to me is a sign of emotional maturity. Sometimes we’re up, sometimes we’re down.”
Of late I’ve been examining the business world, and especially what could be termed “soul-based” or spiritual/intuitive coaching. I do really need to do this as I have been rebranding my own work in that vein. One of my inspirations for this was reading about the life experience of a successful coach in America who I had the pleasure of working with briefly. What was instantly refreshing and different about him is that he revealed a bit of his history…who he had been and how he moved to where he is now. He did this without any sense of embarrassment. In terms of success, this guy had it clicking on all cylinders during the first half of 2015. Then early last summer, the wheels came off of the bus. He had a series of misfortunes and setbacks that would have made anyone question their vision and life’s direction. Instead of hiding behind a façade of “everything’s fabulous”, he sent out a newsletter recounting his challenges and what he was learning through them. No sugar coating, no lies. It was a humbling and inspirational demonstration of trust and vulnerability. Integrity was written all over this guy.
For me the word authenticity only has real weight if a person is fully in touch with their feelings. To own one’s feelings and to show them fearlessly to me is a sign of emotional maturity. Sometimes we’re up, sometimes we’re down. I read somewhere recently that there is some research now showing that acting “as if” or putting on a performance for others can have a negative cumulative effect on one’s own well-being and physical health. The striving for perfection, or even excellence, can cut us off from many things. I feel that we avoid showing up 100% because our egos have been trained and conditioned so thoroughly in the twin shackles of shame and embarrassment.
“Showing up and being who you are, no matter which side of the bed you clambered out of this morning, is how people will instinctively know that you are trustworthy. You don’t have to “sell” it to another, because your truth will permeate whatever you think, say or do. It becomes self-evident."
We often hear that the world of business is about building relationships. If that’s true, why reserve only our “game face” in our business dealings? Is that authenticity? No, not really. It’s the same theatre we see in political campaigns and corporate public relations media campaigns. Both rely on certain types of psychology to manipulate the public into believing something, then doing almost the exact opposite of the stated purpose. Fraud is epidemic. Sound bites and pretty images have a hypnotic effect. But if you are ignorant of the tools employed, then you are a target. I feel it’s time to stop playing games.
Showing up and being who you are, no matter which side of the bed you clambered out of this morning, is how people will instinctively know that you are trustworthy. You don’t have to “sell” it to another, because your truth will permeate whatever you think, say or do. It becomes self-evident. Of course it IS essential that you do as you say you will do! Your words and actions must agree in order to be experienced as real and authentic. To that end it is very important that we can never over-promise or over-commit…or that will cost us in numerous ways. Conversely, honesty and authenticity is magnetic!
When we were kids (no matter in which lifetime you care to think of) our learned behaviours were pretty much dictated by the “shoulds” or “thou shalt nots” that we learned in our primary relating with our parents. Whether we were imprinted with their religious ideas or not, we looked up at them as being gods or goddesses. Almost without exception we perceived that our very survival depended on them! Of course when we were indoctrinated into some religious form, we also projected our perfected ideal of a paternal or maternal God onto our fragile and flawed parents, and when they couldn’t stack up to that image because they let us down, it created confusion and deep disappointment.
"To find the source of your authenticity and your soul, your mission will be to find your nugget, your seed; you’re absolute true nature."
The work of becoming authentic will be found to rest squarely on realizing the combination of our mystical and human natures, the divine and the mundane…our very personal mythos. We are simultaneously a unique expression of the One Love that is the Source of All, and we’re also connected with everyone and everything else. Why hide it? Why hide from it? To find the source of your authenticity and your soul, your mission will be to find your nugget, your seed; you’re absolute true nature. Our core beliefs about the nature and purpose of “business as usual” (busyness as usual) will may have to also change dramatically, if we are to avert social and ecological apocalypse.
"This is the nature of how consciousness works. Trust and love must begin in one’s own personal sphere, and then translates into our intimate partnerships, families, communities, and our business relationships."
The new currency is authenticity. The coming way of being, whether personally or in business is to embrace the power inherent in our vulnerability. Trust will be something that will not have to be spoken, because each person will be more in tune with their true natures. This is the nature of how consciousness works. Trust and love must begin in one’s own personal sphere, and then translates into our intimate partnerships, families, communities, and our business relationships. All of our relationships will thrive because of cooperation with one another, instead of competition.
Love and authenticity are values that must inform all other values. Embrace your truth, and be fearless in being who you are and a journey of magic and bliss will open up to you, and in every life you touch.

Held Emotions Can Kill:

Okay…synchronize your watches. Oh, why bother!! There’s plenty of time…an eternity of it in fact. So, I'll have time for two more blogs after this one for sure! One next week for the Solstice and Full Moon Christmas, and a look ahead for 2016.
Have you been having disturbed sleep patterns? Are you waking up in the middle of the night, and then think five minutes has passed, and it's been an hour? Think of something you need upstairs, then once you got there, completely forgot what the heck it was you needed?
Time. Why is it speeding up, and where is it going? Is someone stealing it? Is it going faster for real, or is that an illusion? Are there Time Bandits messing with our heads, and our Reality here? I loved that movie by Terry Gilliam of Monty Python. If you haven’t seen it, I highly recommend you do so, for it contains metaphors for our subject today.
Now, I wish to preface what I’m about to discuss from my own personal experiences, especially of the past twenty odd years. The nature of “time” hasn’t been normal since the shamanic-spiritual-sexual emergence that started for me in January of 1994. This was a full blown kundalini awakening.
Time started to morph drastically within weeks of it initiating. Within those first days I began noticing strange anomalous gaps in my experience of time/space. Some short term forgetfulness happened.
I couldn’t believe that what felt like the passage of 30 minutes was actually in linear time spanning a few hours or more. The other phenomenon that began was the appearance on my digital clocks of seeing 11:11 (am and pm), 12:12 (same), 1:11, 2:22, 3:33, 4:44 and 5:55! This crazy stuff went on for months, and it wasn’t ever fully explained to me that year. By November I encountered others also contending with this strange stuff. My sleep patterns were majorly disrupted, and I was amazed that I was running on 3-4 hours of sleep for years afterwards, but never was short on energy or strength. Quite amazing how my health seemed unaffected and even improved in certain ways. But, I digress.
Now, the triple and quad numbers thing stayed with me for almost a decade or so, but did, to a certain extent, eventually diminish. So did a majority of the kundalini symptoms. However, shamanic awakenings do not have a sell-buy date. They go dormant, but can become a trigger in the future, or become triggered by some external stimuli. Ultimately the Soul is in charge as to what is transpiring in these experiences, and the timing too. So my kundalini stuff, and the preponderance of seeing these coded numbers and the associated incidences of sleep and time anomalies started up big time for me again in 2012-2013…and continue to the present day.
What does this have to do with now, and the weird stuff that’s going on with time and your relationship to it? Well, it’s all connected in one way or another to larger cycles. Some of these are astrologically explained, others astronomically deduced. The Mayan Calendar countdown to the Winter Solstice of 2012 is one factor. The other one that was operating concurrently with that was the movement of the planet Uranus into Aries (March 2011), and then the Uranus-Pluto Squares that are part of Collective Initiation (Kundalini Awakening to Yin-tegrity) that began in the summer of 2012. The big deal of the ending of the Mayan Long Count Calendar was called “The End of Time.” Whoa!! Big claim that. Everyone expected something momentous to occur in the world at the time. Some folks did have personal events of one kind or another, but for the most part, the “normal” world seemed to continue on its way without interruption, until this year, and specifically, the time between mid-September and right now.
The “big why” for this is still a bit unclear to me, but my intuition says that it is rooted in two things. That Mayan Calendar event in Dec.2012 and what our Planet is going through recently. I don’t mean, socially, politically, or even spiritually. The biosphere, the deep ecology of Gaia is changing…and I think in such a dramatic way that it is altering our perception of time, the way memory works, and how our sleep patterns and dreaming function. It is provoking a lot of the stuff we are see unfolding on the world stage too.
Part of this can be traced to solar activity and how it interacts with the geomagnetic fields of our planet. Some of it is the result of gamma particles streaming in from the galactic core. Recent alignments astrologically to the Super Galactic Center (I will avoid astro-babble here) are probably a big trigger for a lot of it as well.
The symptoms that many are encountering are quite numerous. Here’s my list of 7 Major Indicators:
One reader reports some rather interesting events in her personal awareness. Perhaps you'll resonate with some of these, which I've paraphrased:
"Hearing: low hums, changes in frequency, blocked ears, rising pitches and odd harmonics that vary with changes in barometric pressure and weather. Visual anomalies: sparkling around stuff, or vision is shaky. Coloured shapes: aqua and bright green, pulsations. Some geometric forms, like spirals. Spacial stuff: general spaciness, dizzyness, vertigo, feelings of disassociation. Body aches and pains: that move around the body, changes in temps in various parts of the body, heart palpitations, racing pulse, shortness of breath."
Of course the list goes on, and I invite you, the Reader, to comment and add your experiences to the dialogue.
So, you may wondering how are you supposed to handle this stuff? Patience with self is key. So is extreme self care. You can't will all of this to stop. It may feel like you're under attack (see guy at right), and I will not lie to you and say there aren't dark energies or aspects that aren't too happy about all the changes that are happening, or that have the potential of changing. That's a discussion for another post though.
For sleep disorders, there's Valerian Root, Hops, and the time-tested one, Magnesium (preferably in water soluble form...like Natural Calm). For memory, there are herbs that seem to work, but check with a naturopath or some other health care professional for some suggestions. Best not to fight your own memory, and get in the habit of writing things you need to do on a list, or add to a calendar app on your phone or pad.
For anger and emotions, see a counsellor or a coach, discover EFT tapping, flower essences, EMDR, or just get out into Nature and walk, walk, walk until you're tired. Don't stifle though, and be willing to allow whatever arises to arise while giving yourself empathy. Witness your having the emotions, but you don't have to let your mind go into fight or flight, or label it as a threat.
Electronics is another area. I use EnergyDOTs from a company in the UK. Reputable stuff. It won't stop your stuff from fritzing, but you'll be calmer in the face of electronic disruption. Again, get away from your gadgets and unplug for a bit each day.
If you are super sensitive (empathic), then energy work, or specialized tools may help. As you can imagine, I do a lot of work with others having spiritual emergencies or spontaneous empathic awareness. You can modify without having to shut down completely. Getting out into Nature always helps too. If you feel drawn to do so, I can help support you and provide you with the tools for navigating and enhancing your experience. Just contact me by clicking here.
I have no suggestions for missing time. It's a mystery for the moment.
So there’s something really afoot, and it cannot be ignored. If Uranus in Aries is the awakening to Yintegrity (the Divine Feminine), and the end of the Mayan Calendar is the end of our being in the grip of historical time and Karma, then we are moving into more of what the Aboriginals refer to as the Dreamtime. Our imaginal realm is beginning to surface and supersede our Yangtegrity-based reality. For the uninitiated, Yangtegrity is “Let’s make a plan and build it” goal-oriented Patriarchy. Yintegrity is “I feel to do this now, cause I want to” intuitive and instinctual Feminine creativity. The attitude most in harmony with Nature and the Planet is Yintegrity. It is supportive, collaborative and non-competitive. It seeks to create community, not competition. Yangtegrity is part of the “been there, done that” continuum. Uranus-Pluto is definitely the switch between paradigms.
Since Uranus is involved, and is prodding us towards “no time” Yintegrity, I must reiterate that I have no way or means of predicting any outcomes here. Uranus is community AND independence AND unpredictability. It’s kind of like this: “I’ll know what I need to know when I need to know it. If I needed to know it NOW, I would already know it.” One prayer for these times could be “I always receive whatever I need before I know I need it.”
Of course all of this, including this blog, is…well, just in the nick of Time!
Go ahead, steal some time. No one’s looking. Or if they do see you, they’ll forget about it in 10 seconds…9, 8, 7, 6…

Dec 10, 2015
It has been almost exactly a month since my last blog, but some days between then and now feels like a year has gone by. As the comedian W.C. Fields once quipped, “Ahh, Philadelphia. I spent a year there one night.” Now I know what he meant by that, and indeed, so much happens each day, if not each hour, I am hard-pressed to call any part of this reality “normal” any longer.
Since my last post I’ve continued my shamanic metamorphosis within and without. The breakthrough I had regarding my “calling” or career continues to unfold one deliciously slow bit after another. Perhaps too slowly for my taste, but I have come to accept that one my main lessons this year has been the learning how to have the patience of Job. I’ve had to learn to do this in respect to a personal situation, but in the end, whatever we think we are doing is first and foremost about ourselves.
As most of you know, two days after November 11th, on Friday the 13th, a wave of violence shook the capital of France. The following day I stumbled onto an image of a scanned article about the heart. I got curious so began to read it. I’ve included the original image here, just as I found it.
I posted it on my Facebook profile first. A friend in Dublin picked it up and shared it. I started to notice the Likes, Shares and Comments about an hour later. I then made the image my personal Facebook page banner. I then visited Amazon.co.uk to see if they had the book quoted in the image (Love and Survival by Dean Ornish MD). I noted that there were about 45 copies of it available, and made a note to come back and check for used copies later in the week. By the end of the first week there was one used copy left, which I ordered. By Sunday morning the combined totals of both posts showed over 800 Shares, 200 Likes, and about 100 Comments. Here in the midst of the aftermath of the terror attacks in Paris, this message about the heart and compassion was hitting a real nerve with the Facebook audience.
Here we are almost 30 days later, and the tally is: 18,322 Shares, 2,718 Likes, 185 Comments.
What this says to me is this; never ever underestimate the value of the human heart, and the power of its coherence to heal. It reminds me again of a quote from the author Niamh Clune, who wrote “The Coming of the Feminine Christ” – “Only through the awakened heart, can the apocalypse be averted.”
Over the course of the intervening weeks since that fateful day in Paris, we have seen the predictable political reaction and over-reaction. Britain’s Parliament voted overwhelmingly to enter into a multi-part conflict that may well create blowbacks and reprisals. Everywhere there is paranoia and anxiety. The cortisol levels on the planet have risen, as have the need for medication and reassurance.
Over the past 10-15 days solar activity has increased, volcanoes have erupted, and storms have brought severe flooding to the British Isles, and unstable weather elsewhere. In my personal life there’s been some tectonic movements as well, and only my trust in the wisdom of uncertainty sustains me at times.
As I understand it just now, the pressures that we perceive to be external are the evidence of massive internal pressures to evolve. These pressures are multidimensional and multi-lateral. The energies of the Cosmos filter into our awareness in the form of astrology. The convulsive awakening of the planet, and the living intelligence that created and governs Her is pushing us this way and that. Our own souls are rebelling against eons of cultural and religious bondage, and in the mad rush for freedom the accumulated wounds of all those ages are now becoming more conscious and demanding our unfettered attention. At times it might feel like you’re being backed into a corner. In actuality, we are being shown the open door of our all too familiar prison cell.
The cosmic weather for this Friday’s New Moon is worth a mention…as it’s a dark Moon in Sagittarius. Mars faces off with Uranus, and until the 13th or 14th the tension is so thick you could cut it with a knife. I refrain from going into a long bout of astro-babble, as I wish to focus on the energy and what to do with it. The chart is posted below so you can see where it may touch you in your particular blueprint.
Look for anything in 17 to 21 degrees of Mutable Signs (Virgo, Pisces, Gemini and Sagittarius) as the hot spots. Uranus will be at 16 Aries, Chiron at 17 Pisces, so they’ll be in play too, as the Sun and Moon will be squaring Chiron and trine to Uranus, with Mars still opposing Uranus, so the Sun/Moon will be sextile to Mars. Remember the trines and sextiles are mostly harmonious and squares and conjuncts tense, and oppositions too…but not always. I love how my astrological buddy Jim Buss describes squares as “mastery through challenge.” Sounds a whole lot more positive, don’t you think?
The predominant energy for this New Moon is dig in, find out what it is that you want for Christmas, write out your List for Jolly Old St. Nick, and file it under your Best Loved Hopes and Dreams for 2016. Add a caveat…”only that which is for my highest good, and the highest good of all concerned.” Remember, this isn’t about perpetuating the greed and error of the wounded Masculine nature (patriarchy/hyper-capitalism), which knows no gender discrimination. Instead, think of Abundance is having just enough to share!
Try to treat this process as if you were issuing a command, not just a request. In order to co-operate with Mr. Universe, it helps to imagine you as part of a team with the Coach, not part of a hierarchy with a top-down organization. I also recommend sprinkling your wish list with gratitude and a huge sense of curiosity, instead of an attitude of “do this, or die trying.” There ya go, now have some fun!!
The only other thing this New Moon will be good for is…truth and honesty. Oh, “those things” you say. Yep. Sag’s LOVE truth (and stretching it :-)), and seek for it constantly. But with the dark moon in Jupiter’s penchant for veracity, I see this as thorough examination inside about your beliefs and cherished pets. No wiggling out of this one. The energies of the past two weeks haven’t been a walk in the park, and you might be pretty frazzled, but this is mega important. What will you need to do now to finally let go of those beliefs and brainwashing? Yes, you thought you needed to hang on to them in order to fit in and survive, but…what if you remove the belief that this or that obligation or whatever is sacred, then what? You certainly don’t want to be dragging a ball and chain into the Christmas Season. Someone may mistake you for old Bob Marley, the ghost of Christmas Past. How embarrassing! Please avoid a stocking full of coal and ditch what no longer serves you. There are better things to come.
In closing, this Christmas has Full Moon in Cardinal signs, and it happens just a day or so ahead of Uranus leaving its long five months in retrograde captivity. I’ll focus on that later, but suffice it to say that it could be a very interesting time between now and the year’s end. The Winter Solstice arrives at 4:48 UT on December 22nd, followed by the Full Moon at 3 degrees, 19 minutes of Cancer. This could be a highly emotional time between now and then. Allow it, and use it to nurture yourself. Remember that others are probably also feeling a lot of feelings.
This Christmas, give the very best, and give of your presence and heart-love…to yourself, to those you care deeply for, and for total strangers, wherever you may encounter them. I overheard a middle-aged man tell his lady friend at a café how he was exhausted and emotional. Yes!! He admitted his feelings right there in public, and it was well received by his friend. I commented, and he was very appreciative to have another guy support his honesty too.
So, reach out to others, and you will be supported in turn. If you aren’t feeling supported, muster the effort to tell someone. Reach out, and someone will be there to receive you as well. Anyone who you might know that is having a rough time, tell them, “Hey, I love you. Is there anything I can do?” Someone else will do the same for you, and will say “I’ll be there, no kidding!” Not to be confused with sentimentality, this is the core of our real human and spiritual selves…to be there to give aid and comfort when needed.
This Christmas could be something really different, because of you. In which case, it will be really different, for you. I invite you to watch and dance to one of my favorite songs (see below) from my teenage years. It may not be seasonal, but we can make it so…just this once.
Hey…I’ll be there. I will reach out, and if you reach out to me, you can count on me. I promise I’m telling you the truth…always. And in all ways.

11th November, 2015
Well, it’s 11:11. This date is etched in my memory for many reasons.
By November 1994 the spontaneous kundalini awakening I had been experiencing since January was finally calming down enough that I could start socializing a bit. I ran into an old friend who invited me to the first channelling event I had ever been too. Some ex-investment banker named Loren was channelling an entity named Jabbar. I was clueless. The night of November 10th, 1994 I was in the audience. The channelling began, and this big hulk of a man seemingly turned into a shuffling character that reminded me of a Chinese Shaolin monk. Speaking in an odd accent and time signature, he addressed that packed meeting room about “ascension” symptoms, like seeing triple digit numbers on clocks and license plates of cars…seeing 4:44, 5:55, 1:11, and especially, 11:11. He talked about it being 11:11 the next day. As I sat there transfixed, I realized that my cheeks were wet with tears. I’d been having these experiences for 11 months now, and here was a roomful of 50 people all going through the same thing? I didn’t know what to think or say.
Now I am going to fast forward to 1998. I’d moved to Sedona, Arizona the previous March, and without wanting it to happen, and in fact resisting it every step of the way, I began channelling a being named Archangel Ariel. My first public event was on November 11th, 1998. I sat among another 50 or so people and I don’t recall much of anything that happened. It do remember it was recorded, and people afterwards were wowed and grateful. What followed on from that was six years of road travel to facilitate private sessions, group presentations and workshops, and also having my newsletter -based channelled messages published in New Age publications worldwide.
My long-running tour pretty much culminated during the week of November 11th, 2003 on the Big Island of Hawaii. For two consecutive years I had been invited to Kailua-Kona to co-facilitate Dolphin Swim Seminars with Joan Ocean. These were magical times for me, and very powerful too. The Harmonic Concordance was happening on November 8th, 2003, and I was slated to do a public channelled event at the Royal Kona Resort on the night of 11:11. Another magical night, made more so by that fact I met the woman that evening I would marry the following September…in Scotland!
The time signature of 11:11 also figures prominently in another year around November 10th-11th, 2013. I was attending a conference in London that weekend about lucid dreaming, out of body experiences and shamanic practices. The “moment” of significance was the keynote talk by Tim Freke on the evening of November 10th, and a flurry of correspondences with a dear friend that happened the next day – November 11th. It was the start of many huge changes that would proceed from that weekend to the present time.
Today is also a New Moon in Scorpio, at 19 degrees of Scorpio at 5:47pm GMT. The Sabian Symbol for this is 20 Scorpio, which has current significance for me, as I’m about to spill the beans about a major change in my work. The Symbol is:
“A Woman Drawing Aside Two Dark Curtains That Closed The Entrance To A Sacred Pathway”
(from The Sabian Symbols by Lynda Hill)
So, what this is saying to me is so timely, I can hardly believe it. For about four years now I have been putting myself out there as an astrologer, a soul-based or evolutionary astrologer to be exact. I’ve always been into astrology, and it was a major part of my healing journey in the wake of my spiritual emergence/Kundalini awakening 21 years ago. I enjoy it immensely, and felt that it would be a natural replacement part for my old channelling/counselling function, so I could use my intuitive abilities in a different context. However, just recently it came to my attention that; 1) being an astrologer wasn’t financially supporting me, 2) there are many more people who are out there doing astrology for a living than there were five years ago…the market is a bit saturated, and 3) it is NOT, professionally speaking, my first love. It does utilize all my natural listening, counselling, intuitive and psychological skills, but something’s been missing. The past two weeks, the missing components have been returning.
I don’t intend to go into giving you an entirely new CV right here, but I have come to realize something very important. I have been hiding out…been keeping certain parts of who I am in the shadows all these years. With all the talk of showing up as authentically as possible, I am now repatriating some of the biggest gifts, skills and genius that I’ve always had right there, just where I could tap into them if I needed them, then conveniently put them out of sight again. My first love is Love itself. What I know goes with that is my intense desire and passion to help others break free…to live from authentic passion…and yes, with Desire.
My Kundalini experience was multi-fold. It was triggered by some astrological transits, I know that, but the ignition point was love. Love of the Divine Feminine and Nature, and it was spiritual, cosmic, intimate, sexual, emotional, and very transformational. It reminded me of the “I” within, and has taken me back to Nature and the knowing that this planet is a living Entity. My First Love includes relating, relationships, communication, communing, feeling our feelings fully, sacred intimacy with safety and boundaries, the merging of the senses, Spirit and Self, to assist others to live in the way that is from their truest and greatest vision of Who They Are. And, it’s about returning to our nature, and to Nature. This is the core of all our healing work.
This may all be sounding and looking like a hodgepodge at the moment, but it will get more concise as I work with it. This past week has been some of the most profound reconnections to inner guidance that I’ve had in ages. I’m receiving visions and direction on how to revise my work, and how I want to share it. It is a work in progress, but it is going very fast. Thanks for you for your patience, as this is just writing itself at the moment.
So, the website is undergoing changes already. I’m going to get out in front of people more. I was going to teach an online introduction to astrology course, and although I love to teach, this subject is so broad, so deep and complicated, that I am feeling to let it go in favor or a series of webinars and podcasts on key subjects (which I love and know inside and out) that I know you will be most interested in. Then I will begin crafting courses with practical applications that yield real results! I will continue to use my astrological skills in the context of coaching, mentoring and some group work and webinars. It is relevant, but I see that there are many other very important ways in which I can create a greater impact and love what I do more, and not (hopefully) have to strive to make a living to express my unique Genius. If I can help a few of you do that too, then it’s all worth it.
Look for more in the next few blogs…I’m going to be enjoying seeing what happens next. Whatever happens, it will be done from the heart.
Have a blessed 11:11, wherever you are. I love you.

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.
