Oct 29th, 2016
For a long time now I’ve been wrestling with a conundrum about my calling and career direction. As most of you on this mailing list know, for almost 14 years I was a channel for a lot of inspiring information, clearing tools and consciousness-raising techniques with Archangel Ariel and some other names from beyond the Veil. What many of you perhaps do not know is how reluctant I was to be in this role in the first place. Retrospectively, I can look back and see how perfectly suited I was for this task, and how it was a perfect spiritual evolution for my life. I also knew it was a limited engagement, so to speak. Archangel Ariel hasn’t left…how can any of us “leave” the eternal river of Life? Things and forms may change, but the heart and soul of Source is in everything, and IS everything.
My heart tells me now to allow that which I’ve always had the greatest love for to just emerge unrestricted, and allow it to become the basis of my service to others. In fact, even as a channel this area of interest was always cropping up in private sessions, and public discourses. This love is the love of connection, of love, of healing our hearts and expanding ourselves to be more of who we came here to be. My life has been testing in the arena of personal and intimate relationships and partnering. For me, the dialogue between souls in love has been one that is magnetic and compelling, and I’ve always felt a kinship between my spiritual path, and the Path of The Beloved. I will share a bit more about this at the end of this blog.
Tomorrow’s New Moon is a perfect example of the transformative power of love and passion into purpose and liberation. As an archetype, Scorpio’s mantra is “I Desire”. It desires union, depth, and infinite longing to be merged with power and love at its Source. If there is a one sign in astrology that epitomizes the urge to explore the boundaries of self through deep relating and intimate partnership, it’s Scorpio!
Scorpio even has three images to denote a progression of spiritual evolution that is unique in our Zodiac – the scorpion, the eagle and the Phoenix. The theme of death and rebirth here is strong, as is the one of redemption and resurrection. The lowest manifestation is still caught up in the pursuit of material security and acquisition for its own sake. This is the polarity or shadow point of Taurus within the Scorpionic subconscious. The Eagle denotes the movement from the shadow state towards a higher purpose. The Phoenix represents the culmination and transmutation (or alchemy) from the denser states of survival and raw desire to one of complete merging and trust within the heart of the Divine.
There are quite a few important aspects with this New Moon that will galvanize some towards chaos, and others towards a higher or more refined state of connection with the Planetary intelligence and the Cosmos. The electro-magnetic principle is operative within all celestial bodies, (and subatomic physics), and Scorpio is at its most powerful in the expression of magnetism. Therefore, with the aspects involved, this lunation is even more well-suited to fearlessly letting go of any old fear-based patterns. As my fellow astro-shaman Jim Buss would say, "we cling to our karma, not the other way around." Starting with your highest desire and working “backwards”, examine any beliefs, people, objects or old hurts that are standing around and telling you “you can’t……….” whatever it is. Letting go is the art of naming what needs to be expunged without judgment or shame.
Mercury is right next (conjunct) to the Sun-Moon at 7 degrees and stimulates our Sherlock Holmes powers of deductive reasoning. Elementary my dear Watsons! This powerful triad is trine (easy-flowing) to the South Node and Neptune in Pisces. This lends a dreamy air to an otherwise potentially harsh Scorpio vibe. It combines Grace with a willingness to let go of old (South Node) baggage. Higher love is the theme here. Be loving towards yourself in as many ways as you can conjure up (it is Halloween – Samhain). Time for some elementary magic. May your word be your wand!
Finally, there’s the close (but fortunately separating) aspect of Venus with Saturn in the sign of Sagittarius. I interpret this as a slightly sobering influence that will keep our Moon trine Neptune tendencies from carrying us upwards without an anchor. Saturn isn’t raining on the passionate Scorpio desire parade for sacred bonding that takes the individual ego on a transformative journey. It’s merely emphasizing the need for temperance and self-inquiry about any delusions or illusions in our relationship history that may still be unresolved.
Astrology is not a form of divination or a sure bet, even though predictive astrology is gaining some ground (and accuracy). I recommend you pour the energy of who you are, vibrationally, with your heart’s desire, into whatever you are choosing and desiring. Then comes the big deal. Let all of it go - completely and utterly. To God, Goddess, All That Is, or however you want to think about Source and The Universe. Sound simple? It isn’t. Your mind will have you jumping through hoops all next week wondering when this or that will manifest on your doorstep. Let…it…go. Thanks!
Above the sky, there is no astrology. Beyond the confines of our solar system, there are unimaginable wonders. And yet, it is here we find ourselves. Our souls are always dancing between two longings...the "out there" and the "in here". The dance of Life, the ballet of existence. Tomorrow's New Moon isn't just another Looney Tunes event. Take a broader view. It's not about the Moon, or the Sun. It's about a fundamental shift away from the familiar, and somewhat nightmarish direction the "out there" seems to be heading in. There are always days of uncertainty in the wake of a new influx of energy, which is after all, a cosmic email with many attachments to download and view. Let your feelings happen...let your mind relax...let your soul emerge. This is what we've been waiting for.
Water, music, dancing, feelings, tears, emotions, desire, ecstasy, passion. Welcome to the wild, watery and slightly wacky world of Scorpio. The heart knows what it wants.
Now to continue where I left off above, about the path of the Beloved…
This blog is the first of a four-part series about the path of “Relationships and The Soul”. In the articles coming I’ll be exploring many themes that will be leading up to a special announcement about my new focus, and provide you with some new perspectives and understandings about where we are today in our relationships and why, and where we can go from here. I do hope you’ll take the time to read and comment, or contact me directly with any questions you may have.
I feel it is time to create new paths of relating and connecting, sacred trusts between men, women, men and men, and women and women. If we wish to create a new world that is more loving and sharing, it must begin within ourselves, and then be expressed with others authentically and without the old fears, shame or guilt that have burdened us for too long. Patriarchy is dead, the Industrial Age is dying, and the old walls between the genders need to dissolve. A time of crisis is an opportunity to change, and we are all being called upon to dig deep now, discover our unique genius and gift, and offer it to each other and our world.
Blessings on your journey.

Lunar Eclipse – March 23rd, 2016
By Isaac George
March 22nd, 2016
"In true love, happiness is not an individual matter. There is no distinction between the one who loves and the one who is loved. Your suffering is my suffering; my happiness is your happiness. Lover and beloved are one." ~Thich Naht Hanh
The bookend to the Solar Eclipse of March 8th-9th will arrive tomorrow at 12:01pm GMT. This is a partial or annular Lunar Eclipse of the Full Moon, with the Sun at 3 degrees 17 minutes of Aries, and the Moon opposite at 3 degrees 17 minutes of Libra. As I recounted in my Sunday blog, “Creative Chaos”, there are strong connections to what happened six months ago during the Solar and Lunar Eclipses of September 2015. You can read or re-read that post here. Suffice it to say that this is a fundamental reset of the “game”, and it will not only set the tone for the next six months, till the eclipses of September 2016, but quite conceivably for many months beyond that juncture. Time will tell, as it always does.
Into the Way Back Machine!
I’ve been looking back to when there were any lunations (New Moons, Full Moons) or eclipses in Aries and Libra between 2011 and 2013. I selected 2011, because Uranus entered the sign of Aries on March 11th, 2011…the day of the massive temblor and tsunami that devastated Sendai province in northeastern Japan. I found two charts, one in March of 2012 and another one also in March of 2013 that are very close to the one this is coming up this Wednesday, and is also strongly connected to the “Blood Moon” Lunar Eclipse of September 28th, 2015. In all of the four charts the Sun and Moon are tightly arranged between 2 degrees and 7 degrees of these two signs. I’ve included them with the chart for our Lunar Eclipse tomorrow at the end of this blog.
Finally, the last blast from the past to reveal was that there was a Lunar Eclipse at almost the exact same degrees of Aries-Libra as the next one this Wednesday (chart below as well). If you can reel in the years and go back to March 24th,1997, reflect on what was happening for you at that time, it may put a huge spotlight of understanding on your current situation, and provide you with the wisdom and courage to act in accordance with your Inner Truth.
"With Aries-Libra, relating is the name of the game. The challenge is how do we balance the needs or desires of the Self (Mars-Masculine) with the needs and desires of The Other (Venus-Feminine)? The seemingly eternal dance between these two forces makes for a lot of interesting poetry, music, art, fables…and tragedies."
Oh, You Again…”
Simply stated, Aries is all about the Self…”I Am.” Equally simple is that Libra is about “The Other.” There is always a relationship happening in everything…throughout the Cosmos, from the subatomic level to the galaxies themselves. Some physicists theorize that there are bonds and bleedthroughs between parallel Universes. Anyway, the Aries-Libra polarity represents the astrological version of The Lovers card in the Tarot, or the Sacred Marriage from the mystery schools. It manifests from the strictly personal level to the Universal Level. Beyond the duality of form, they are Divine Principles that emanate into all manifest forms, and yet are completely fused in the Absolute and are completely indivisible. That’s big supra-metaphysical theorising on my part, but feels right as a model.
With Aries-Libra, relating is the name of the game. The challenge is how do we balance the needs or desires of the Self (Mars-Masculine) with the needs and desires of The Other (Venus-Feminine)? The seemingly eternal dance between these two forces makes for a lot of interesting poetry, music, art, fables…and tragedies. From an evolutionary astrological perspective for the past four years we have been on a revolutionary road of dismantling and reforming our psyches through the uncomfortable crucible of intimate and challenging relationships, and all of them have been steeped in a shamanic unravelling and healing of our relationship karma. When I use the word “karma”, I’d like for you to reference that word in a new way. Think “unconscious patterns based on equally hidden vows or beliefs”. Throughout time and space, we have met ourselves again and again with many of our “other selves” and have sought to balance the eternal dance that is ultimately about realising Love as a state or condition of being.
"Perhaps the age of digital love is about to have a rude awakening, or perhaps we are awakening to the rudeness of digital socialization."
Is there a manual for this thing?
Okay, it hasn’t been easy, and it’s not a process that is culminating with Wednesday’s latest edition of Aries-Libra lunations/eclipses. I don’t have a crystal ball, or a road map, or even a factory issued user’s manual, but I do sense that this event on Wednesday may be a gateway to the final purification of eons of relationship trauma and drama. At least that’s what my instincts are saying just now. We are being given an evolutionary push to change our beliefs, and more importantly, our understanding about the purpose and potentials of human intimacy and conscious partnerships. It can be sometimes difficult to discern, but almost every challenge our species now faces, from how we care for ourselves or look after each other, to how we reinvent and reimagine our economic, political, scientific and societal structures… to how we end our mistreatment of the planet and her resources, hinges on how much we trust in ourselves and the ones we love the most.
We pump the message that we need to love ourselves, and yet we are starving for connection. In his cynical and disenfranchised tone, Elliot, the hacker in the new television drama “Mr Robot”, bemoans the current state of human love: “[…is it because we’re] spamming with our running commentary of bullshit masquerading as insight, our social media faking as intimacy?” Perhaps the age of digital love is about to have a rude awakening, or perhaps we are awakening to the rudeness of digital socialization.
"I feel that real spiritual love, one that is rooted in mutual respect and deep honesty, is extremely romantic. It gives us that sense of “coming home” that we all long for…and know we deserve."
The Rest of the Story
While the foreground is the Sun and the Moon in the Lunar Eclipse, the background cast is equally important. The day after the Eclipse Saturn will station retrograde in Sagittarius. He will move direct on August 14th at 9 degrees of Sag, and be very close to Mars at 5 Sagittarius. The upcoming Mars retrograde in Sagittarius and Scorpio is a story in and of itself, so I will save that for an April post.
On the day of the Eclipse Saturn will be in a stressful T-Square with Venus and Neptune in Pisces, and retrograde Jupiter in Virgo. I feel that having this happen just before Saturn goes into inward (retrograde) motion is a phase of reviewing and integrating the energies and lessons of all the previous eclipses, and indeed, or all the Aries-Libra contacts of the past four years. It’s a time for introspection, and it won’t work to be doing hard-nosed analysing (Virgo) about matters of the heart and soul. The Venus-Neptune conjunction will be the main energy here…asking us to be compassionate and forgiving, and to also re-image a Higher aspect of romantic and intimate Love. I use the word romance not in a story-book way, but in a way to celebrate the “lift” that we experience with romantic love. I feel that real spiritual love, one that is rooted in mutual respect and deep honesty, is extremely romantic. It gives us that sense of “coming home” that we all long for…and know we deserve. I highly recommend this amazing video clip to get a better feel for what my poor words are trying to express. True Love and the Four Elements of Love – Thich Nhat Hanh. The first seven minutes carries the nugget of the message.
Mars in Sagittarius will be trine the Sun and is sextile to the Moon. This adds a strong but egalitarian tone of asking that we tell the Truth…to ourselves and whomever we’re currently partnered with. Even if we are not with a significant other, our intention towards emanating compassion and love to those we are in connection with, in whatever form, will still have a potent effect. Ending conflict both from within and towards others is the idea. Mercury will be conjoined to the Sun as well, so there may be an impulsiveness to ask questions in a very rapid-fire style, like a special interrogator questioning a suspect in a crime. Uncomfortable but necessary truths may suddenly come to light. The juxtaposition between Mars and Mercury will be daunting, and a bit paradoxical. You may be thinking, "Do I stick to the hard facts only, or do I allow leeway for compassionate understanding?" I suppose the answer to that will depend on what type of information is unearthed. If there is no longer any resonance with your current situation, then this eclipse may signal that it’s time to move on and open to a higher more resonant partnership that is based on true love, transparency and equality.
The asteroid goddess Juno is retrograde (inverted) in Scorpio, and will be in a harmonious flow with Venus and Neptune. The need for passion within our partnering is denoted by this placement. Juno typically is associated with the traditions of marriage, but in Scorpio, marriage is elevated to a sacrament through passion and sexuality. There can be no true intimacy without being naked in body and soul to the Beloved. This is soul Tantra, and is something we all possess, but has been civilised out of us and forgotten. Tantric practices were invented to reawaken us to the primal truth that is in the divine nature within our bodily forms. Ecstasy is a natural state that exists when we are in harmony with Nature, with the Goddess.
"We all deserve the love that we give away, and the love that we receive. The union of hearts will be a potent power for changing the course of the future. Give freely…it all comes back to you in some way, and at some time."
The Next Steps
Between now and the next set of eclipses in September I feel that it will be a time of greater movement and greater clarity in our understanding of ourselves, of others and what our hearts and souls truly desire to create in this world. Everything is connected, and the arena of our interpersonal relationships echoes throughout the human and planetary construct. If we truly wish to have a different future, then the ghosts of our past must be confronted and lovingly and empathically embraced. We cannot cure prior wounding without acknowledging our held emotions and deep longings. The relationship issues we had with our parents are reflections of all of our previous bonding experiences with each other as lovers, spouses, siblings, parents or even just workmates and friends. To change the story of our personal and collective past is to alter the future.
We have the potential to live the life of our dreams. I suggest that those dreams include others in many ways. To balance our needs with the greater needs of our entire species is the way forward. Everyone has a right to clean water, good food, warm shelter, comfortable clothing and personal safety. And everyone needs closeness, affection, recognition and love. Dr. Dean Ornish’s book, “Love and Survival” is a wonderful testament to the power of connection and what it means to be fully human. I recommend it to you as one of many potential guides to how we can imagine and create new and sacred ways of relationship, ways that don’t cause us to fall back into martyrdom or self-effacement. More importantly, we can end the cycle of heartache and heartbreak that is at the core of our spiritual wounding…the false sense that we are separate from our Source, and from each other.
Move forward into the sacred marriage with your inner Beloved and invite that Beloved into your purpose for being here on this planet at this time. Let your deepest dreams and yearnings be expressed. Begin with yourself, then with your beloved, then in communion with others of your “tribe”, then in wider community. It grows exponentially when we choose love, collaboration and cooperation.
We all deserve the love that we give away, and the love that we receive. The union of hearts will be a potent power for changing the course of the future. Give freely…it all comes back to you in some way, and at some time.

(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:
by Isaac George
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…

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.
