STATE OF THE PLANET UPDATE: “Return to Sender”
February 11th, 2022
Another year, another momentous month, and many different energies pushing and pulling in many different directions. If there is one recommendation for the now, is trying to maintain some equilibrium and keep your cool. Things could fray at any moment, so it’s beneficial to take three deep breaths whenever you feel on the verge of overwhelm or your fuse is lit by your own sense of frustration, or other’s demands, or information and energy overloads. Reminds me of an old Broadway musical called “Stop the World, I Want to Get Off!”
The multidimensionality of events and stimuli is quite evident in the outer material reality, but it is mostly happening in the mind/astral realm. Our emotional bodies are jostled, and our physical bodies are telegraphing frantic messages like “danger ahead”, or “Hey, pay attention! We’re in pain, discomfort and insecurity!” This is unsurprising when the entire planet is immersed in a chaotic fishbowl of artificial digital atmospheres, media-fostered fear headlines, and one crisis after another all clamouring for attention and action.
Take a BIG step back from it all! All this is not who you are, nor is it indicative of the true nature of Nature and every other soul in this world. Meditation is important for calming the mind stuff and connecting and caring for our physicality even more so. When I get rattled, I listen to music…calming, meditative and ethereal music. Do whatever you works for you, not as a mindless form of escapism, but as a conscious form of self-care and rebalancing.
The astrological/energetic markers for the weeks ahead are also multidimensional and multipurpose. Remember, what we call astrology is nothing more than a symbolic language for understanding life on Earth, nothing more and nothing less. It won’t make you more spiritual, but it can point you towards things in your psyche that may get in the way (karmic habits) of your full self-realization. When applied to national or world events, astrology has an uncanny ability to predict potential manifestations of our collective consciousness or help us understand in hindsight what the hell just did happen, and why.
We are embodied forms of Consciousness, and that is why everything ‘feels’ so freaking real. At the level of the Absolute, it is all just a form of play manifesting in a dualistic way. So, what is the Absolute wanting us to pay attention to, right now? Remember that the transiting Nodal Axis is astrology’s way of highlighting the most important thing, right now. (For those of you who are students of astrology or grizzled veterans, please reference the charts I’ve provided below.)
If you have your own chart, check for any aspects to the degrees mentioned in the next paragraph, and remember that there can be five major aspects: Conjunctions (within 6 degrees of one another), Squares (at a 90-degree angle between points), Sextiles (60 degree angles), Oppositions (180 degrees opposite one another), and Trines (90 degrees in relationship to each other).
First up the Full Moon on the 16th arrives at 4:55pm GMT (London) at the 27th degree and 59th minute of Leo. Mars and Venus are conjunct at 16 degrees of Capricorn, and Pluto is now at the 27th degree of Capricorn and quincunx to the Full Moon. Quincunxes are awkward and irritating energies. Like being stuck on a plane with someone next to you snoring and you must put up with it. A Quincunx is a 150-degree angle between two points.
This Full Moon is being squared (challenged) by the Nodal Axis at 27 degrees of Scorpio and Taurus. Recall what I said above, about the transiting Nodes saying, “pay attention to this!”? Here it is. Taurus is our values versus the culture or society’s value system. Scorpio is about secrets and security, and depth…lots of deep dark stuff. Leo is about the heart chakra, yes, but also loves being the king or queen and feeling superior. The Sun at almost the last degree of Aquarius signals a call to look beyond the obvious and discover the higher ground perspective about what’s happening – and no, you cannot ignore or avoid what is unfolding.
The Native Americans feel that whatever is happening in the moment is exactly what needs to be happening, and to push it away or rationalize about it is never going to work. Better to open one’s eyes to the opportunity for remembering and growth instead of resisting. This will be a really great time for seeing things with new eyes, and then planting new thoughts and ideas around what sort of actions would you like to create that will build a new and better tomorrow for you and everyone else. Think “both/and” and take it beyond the personal. It is also a call to participate, even if you have strong feelings that are the opposite. For example, I have been wrestling with yearnings to simply chuck it all, head off into the woods, ditch my tech and live like a hermit. That may have a romantic spin to it, but it is a sure-fire way to fall off the edge of the world. Instead, this New Moon carries with it an energy to double one’s efforts to find and connect with your tribe and start building something in the way of a cooperative or community that looks and feels better than what the old world is offering. That world is dying, though it is putting up one hell of a fight along the way.
The next huge event is the USA Pluto Return on February 20th, 2022. To be frank we’ve been in the energy of this already for months, and this is the first exact contact of Transiting Pluto to the USA Natal Pluto since July 4th, 1776. That’s never happened before, and it is truly a once-in-a-lifetime event. How many times have you heard that in the past two years? Plenty I suspect. Make no mistake, this one is bigger than the Saturn- Pluto conjunction on January 12th, 2020, that heralded in (or helped trigger) the Covid era. Check out this chart for all the alignments and amazing aspects that this event demonstrates. It would take far too long to dissect every single aspect and meaning here, which is why I am devoting my next two radio shows to the topic (see details after the end of this article).
The main event is Pluto conjunct Pluto, in Capricorn. It is the end of America as we have known it, and we will have to see how and what the people of the USA choose to do with that. All the fruits of the seeds sown for 248 years are going to fall out of the sky all at once for good or bad. In America they refer to this as “chickens coming home to roost.” Hence the title for this article as it refers to how karma always returns to its sender.
Remember that there is only “good-bad” in duality. It may be more useful to phrase this as “helpful, or not helpful.” Since Capricorn governs governments, all manner of institutions (political, military, financial, medical, and social), a further dis-integration of the same may accelerate under Pluto’s tutelage.
Simultaneously, the regular folk may also realize that their leadership has been leading them down the garden path for a very long time. It will be time for everyone, not just Americans, to realize that the only power that these institutions and leaders have is the power we have ceded to them. It will be time to emancipate and wean ourselves out of the outworn habit of placing our trust and power into the hands of others, and start growing into mature, adult souls capable of looking after ourselves and each other in an egalitarian sort of way. Pluto is the Lord of Death, the Lord who Taketh Away, and anything that no longer is serving the collective soul of humanity is going to be removed...one way or another. Best not to resist it on any level as that is what causes suffering.
Once again, with the transiting Nodes involved the message is that THIS is the most important thing to focus on. Mars and Venus conjoined in Capricorn will stimulate loving ourselves no matter what happens and will stimulate our instincts to create structures and modalities designed to foster mutual survival and compassion…no matter what. Mercury conjunct the USA Nodal Axis in Aquarius-Leo will ask us, can you “think” in a new way about how to go about solving problems? In a nutshell, innovate from intuition, and provide leadership with heart. The transiting Moon in Libra conjunct the USA Natal Juno might be saying “all are welcome to the new Dispensation”, or something like that.
There will be two further conjunctions of Pluto to the USA Pluto this year, on July 12th when retrograde Pluto touches the natal Pluto, and the last pass, the “Resolution” will occur on December 28th, 2022.
So, what might happen at the initiation phase of this major archetypal event? Before I hazard a guess, I need to make the following statement:
One of the reasons that the world is the way it is and has been for thousands of years is because those entities and people whose orientation is rooted in domination of others in order to ensure the survival of the fittest, or hold the belief that the strong deserve to survive and the weak don’t matter, or they that were born to rule and see themselves as superior to us Muggles, is about to be heavily challenged. The globalists have woven the world together into a tight, authoritarian digital construct that they imagine they rule, and don’t kid yourselves, they know about astrology, and the hidden metaphysical arts and methods, and have employed their knowledge of these things to mold the world and human beings as they see fit. Talk about lack of consent on our part! They have been well-organized, insanely well-funded, and working towards total hegemonic control of this planet and all it’s people and resources for a very long time. They won’t go away quietly either.
This year is pivotal in challenging that mindset and agenda, and replace it with a spiritually based, human-oriented philosophy and culture that works for everyone. Otherwise, once Pluto moves into Aquarius in the early part of 2023, the psychotic push towards an all too real one world digital tyranny may well culminate between 2023 and 2025 and be in place until well after Pluto leaves Aquarius in 2043.
The rabbit hole goes ever so deep, and into some real sci-fi places that many would prefer not to venture. There are malevolent forces that have never held anything but envy for this planet, and animosity towards the humans and the divine experiment we are in and co-creating. Some call them the Archons, or the Jinn, or the Watchers. In the Americas they are referred to as “Wetiko”. Modern mystics and psychologists alike tend to think that this is an innate part of our original human design. I seriously contest that notion, as I feel that our original design never was intended to be predatory and deliberately cruel. These beings can infiltrate our minds, and we may unknowingly and ignorantly attribute some of our less desirable behaviours or propensities to our minds and personalities to our parents, our upbringing or some other purely psychological reason. If we remain unaware of what can influence and does influence us, then we cannot take responsible action to correct ourselves and trust solely in our own internal guidance system. A good technology example is television...or the Internet, and especially, smartphones.
I strongly feel that there are other lifeforms in the multiverse, many who benign and benevolent, and some that are hostile. These hostile ones are given the some of the same abilities and some form of intelligence and volition from the Creator of All That Is. They are allowed to follow their predatory instincts, because the true nature of Love is always non-judgmental of Itself and is always allowing. It will be up to us to grow in wisdom and reactivate the perceptual and practical skills needed to neutralize all such negative influences and do so without condemnation or judgement.
I remember listening to a very wise being from Arcturus who was speaking though a human channel in 1994 who addressed the thorny issues of entity possession, dark forces, and all that sort of stuff. With an abundant sense of humor and laser-like perception, he dropped the ultimate non-dualism statement: “After this world has ascended, that “darkness” will be revealed to be of the Light.” They are a type of lifeform but their nature is synthetic, i.e., artificial sentient intelligence. If that’s a tough one to imagine, then read the link and/or listen to the interview I've shared below. One serious little caveat - this same Arcturian being also said that he and his colleagues were told before they came to Earth that they should not participate with evil in any form. Doesn't leave a lot of wiggle room these days.
The Abiogensis of Acari Insects
The Archon Solution – John Lamb Lash interview
Okay, one of my guesses about the upcoming exact meeting of Pluto to the USA Pluto is a big disruption in the world financial markets, starting on Wall Street or perhaps something in the currency trading markets. This could be precipitated by any number of factors, so I can’t reliably name a catalyst. Personally, any number of current events could be the trigger. Russia invading the Ukraine is one I can name. Another is the Canadian PM Trudeau deciding to break up the Freedom Convoy, while still another could be the removal of Britain's scandal-ridden Prime Minister from power. This might precipitate a crisis of confidence in the UK currency - the Pound Sterling, and trigger panic in the markets and causing a devaluation.
Well, the bubbles have been building for some time in the real estate, speculative stock trading, and currency trading markets (cryptocurrencies as well). The growing gap between the very rich and the rest of us has only gotten worse the last two years, when another huge and secret transfer of wealth upwards to the 1% of the 1% was enacted. Pluto presided over the crash of the cheap credit and real estate markets in 2007-2008, and he may just end his tenure in Capricorn the same way he entered it – in a dramatic fashion. This is just one guess. What you do feel, what do think?
One thing is for sure…the only constant is change, so be prepared for anything. A full-on collapse may be just the galvanizing event to bring us together at a whole new level and build a new tomorrow. After all, isn't all we have ever wanted is to be free? Isn't that the rallying cry in many parts of the planet right now? Here's our opportunity, our gift. Let's make it real, for all.

On the next episode of "Revealing the Mysteries" which
airs this coming Sunday, February 13th, 2022
This episode explores the astrology of our times, which has been anything but boring! This coming week there will be a Full Moon at 16 degrees of Leo, which squares the transiting Nodes. Mars and Venus continue to tango closely together in Capricorn as well. But next Sunday, a grand reckoning finally lands - Pluto has returned to its starting position in the sky where it was when the great American experiment began on July 4th, 1776. The conventional wisdom is that so goes America, so goes the world. In this show I will share what this fateful line-up of planetary energies might bring forth in our collective and individual experiences. We have all seen how the dynamic power of Pluto (collective or World Soul)in action since it entered Capricorn in 2008 (credit-housing bubble), and the events of the past two years when it conjoined with Saturn in January 2020. We're not out of the woods yet. Pluto moving through the last two degrees of Capricorn will be offering a clear choice this year. Will we choose wisely? Let's hope so.
Showtime is 5:30pm GMT, 12:30pm EDT, and 9:30am PDT.

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

Supermoon in Pisces/The Energy Times
by Isaac George
August 28th, 2015
I've had a lot of surprises in August, but actually, I'm not surprised. In fact, that should be everyone’s standard response for the rest of the year. “Hey, I wasn’t surprised”…or something like that. After Black Monday and Brown Tuesday, and “I Don’t Freakin’ Believe It” Wednesday, a lot of big and small investors around the world are downing antidepressants and alcohol. There’s been a binge crop of solar activity as well. We’ll talk all about that in the Energy Report segment below, but first…
We have a very busy rest of the month, and September has so much happening in it that I will be breaking this up into at least two or perhaps three consecutive reports. It's a right of passage, and we're on the verge of a lot more change and transformation! Look to the bottom of these posts to grab a look at the chart(s) or other supporting evidence pertaining to the content.
The first of three Super Full Moons occurs this Saturday at 19:35 BST in the U.K. A “supermoon” is what occurs when the moon’s orbit is closest to the earth. It’s called a syzygy, which is a vortex of energy that is created by the Moon, Sun and Earth in alignment. When the moon is this close it can distort the tidal motions and the land masses are even slightly affected. Since our bodies and the viscous fluid that our brain floats in is mostly water, our equilibrium and mental and emotional bodies are impacted. This can create unexpected emotional responses, and fuzzy-headed thinking. For some it’ll be like being on drugs.
At the same time as this lunation, and the next one - a partial Solar Eclipse on September 13th, we have to still deal with Pluto, Chiron, Venus Uranus and Neptune in retrograde motion. Saturn also is still playing a big role in the current energies. Here are the dates of note to follow:
August 29th – This Supermoon is at 6 degrees and 6 minutes of Virgo and Pisces. Jupiter conjuncts the Sun and opposes the Moon, and expands the effects dramatically. Neptune is conjunct the Moon, and opposes the Sun, creating even more Piscean blurriness. Think of the word permeability, and you get the idea. No boundaries between you and the light and dark within. Anything that is dark and hidden will be brought into view. There may be an aura of unreality to certain things, a look like a shimmering mirage in the distance. Is it an oasis, or an illusion up ahead? With this much Neptunian dazzle, it may look more like the Twilight Zone or an alternate universe.
The push-pull will be between work, analysing, and feeling practical versus the call of the great wild open Multiverse with all of its feelings, images, visions, and the desire to merge with the expansive realm of unrequited dreams, unconditional love and oneness. Shall we crack on with what’s at hand, or will you just hold me for eternity? This is the nature of oppositions…a tug of war. Oppositions are always a call for balance, a negotiated win-win (hopefully). One of the things to pay heed to: where were you and what you were dwelling on when the Pisces Eclipse occurred on March 20th this year? Perhaps something related to that time will reveal itself to your awareness this time around.
The New Moon on Sept.13th reintroduces more Virgoan themes, but this time the Sun and Moon will oppose retrograde Chiron at 19 Pisces. This will be covered in next week's post.
Helpful Hints: This could be a very emotional time and feel unwelcome, because darn it, you’ve got stuff to accomplish! (Virgo mind stuff). Full Moons are a release point though, so don’t fight it. I recommend grounding (Virgo) and comforting yourself while you witness your feelings. This is an opportunity to merge intuition with intellect…don’t let it slip past you!
September 1st – Mars and Venus go out on a date with Leo: This will be interesting…especially since Venus is still retrograde. She goes direct on the morning of the 7th of September in the U.K., culminating at 14 degrees and 24 minutes of Leo, and right next to Mr. Mars. This is the second conjoined meeting of three this year, with the next one on November 3rd. Check and see if you have anything around 14 plus degrees in your chart in the signs of Leo, Aquarius, Scorpio or Taurus. That’s where the action will be. The call to balance the masculine and feminine principles within us will feel a bit odd with Venus still moving backwards, and the Full Moon just happening and all that. Seems like a hello and a goodbye…a “Strangers in the Night Moment”, or Daniel Day Louis shouting across a battlefield “Stay alive! I will find you!” in Last of the Mohicans. Can’t wait for round 3 on November 3rd!
The other event on this date is Saturn landing on the Anaretic 29th Degree of Scorpio. I’ve been excitedly reading up on what the 29th degree represents in each sign of the Zodiac, and it’s stunning how effective and inescapable it is. According to the medical astrologer Eileen Nauman, this is the Cosmic Hammer. Basically, if you have any planet, major asteroid or angle (Ascendent, Descendent, etc.) at 29 degrees, and a transiting planet, especially one of the outer transpersonal planets (Saturn, Uranus, etc.) makes contact with something in your natal chart when it arrives at the 29th degree, then any unresolved toxic emotions that have to do with the issues of that natal point will be released. You, as an individual, will have no control over this and it is work that must be done…hence the term Cosmic Hammer. It’s like between degrees 0 and 28, you can resist change. But at the 29th degree you no longer have free will or the ability to dictate to your own soul or the Universe. Forces beyond your control rise up to enforce the evolutionary imperative. Something’s gotta give, and the manifestation will appear to be something that happens outside of you that you will have no control over, but whatever it is will change your mind and your direction. By the way, the transiting planet doesn’t have to be a big outer one. The Sun, Mars and Venus have been transiting through the later degrees of Leo, and causing a spectacular ruckus with some folks when they've touched the 29th degree. The Nodes of the Moon are about to leave Aries-Libra, and then it will be at the 29th degree of Virgo-Pisces. Saturn will return to Sagittarius on September 18th, but more on that in the next installment.
NOTE: The permutations or possibilities depends on the planets involved, so if you have anything in your chart at the 29th degree, and want some guidance to decipher what this Saturn transit is going to do in your chart, then contact me post haste. We can set up an Astro Update session to tackle it. Just click here for more information or to book a reading.
September 6th – Venus in Leo goes direct at 14 degrees and 24 minutes at 9:29 am BST on the morning of September 7th in the United Kingdom. This will be a welcome relief for those who have been through some of the toughest relationship challenges of their lives. There have been breakups, temporary get-togethers, reversing of fields, and just plain heartbreak and releasing since July 25th. Actually, Venus entered the shadow phase on June 22nd and the heat has been on ever since. Venus won’t exit the other side of the shadow period until October 9th, so don’t be too hasty to consider anything as a done deal. In fact, any rethinking that has happened during this retrograde that led to any decision-making of major consequence may end up doubling back on itself. The same way that buying a new car under a Mercury retrograde can create problem. Four or five months down the road you may wonder why you bought this lemon, and what you will wonder what it will take to get out from under it. Rash decisions could come back to haunt you, the other, or all parties involved. The past could indeed become prologue in some cases – i.e., what what looked like a final decision now looks untenable and that which was rejected is now embraced. Only time will tell, so please don’t stand still and hold your breath. These things have a way of sorting themselves out for the best good of all.
As Venus exits the retrograde, it forms a quincunx to Pluto in Capricorn and a trine to Uranus in Aries. The quincunx is a tension aspect that could bring some lessons concerning the sharing of power in relationships and the trine could create a need for more autonomy within your current relationship. Both require a redefining of boundaries and freedom.

That’s the wrap up for the astro-events between today and September 9th, but the next issue will cover the New Moon in Virgo on the 13th of September, and Saturn’s ingress into Sagittarius for the next two years, and what that may mean for all of us. View the chart for tomorrow’s Full Moon below.
The Energy Times:
In the last blog, The Kiss, I had a small section devoted to an Energy Report. Beginning with this issue, I am now calling it The Energy Times.
In that issue I mentioned some of the anomalies that I had been experiencing with electronic computing and telecommunications devices and networks. I also noted a distinct uptick in people getting feeling ill or health challenged but ongoing medical testing coming back with mixed or negative results, but symptoms persisting or worsening anyway. In some recent cases seemingly healthy people died suddenly, or those with chronic but non-life threatening situations also died suddenly. The last category that is noteworthy is emotional instability and a rise in lethargy and despair. In early August a number of friends and clients reported feeling like they just felt like giving up or had no idea what in the world to do with themselves. Some folks have been borderline suicidal in some cases. Dizziness, nausea, fainting spells, disorientation, and disorganization also were reported. And, as has been the case for some time now, disrupted sleeping patterns, or bouts of insomnia are widespread.
So in the last issue I invited you, the Reader, to submit anything that seemed out of the ordinary, and I got back some good responses. Reports varied from person-to-person, but overall the consensus on the Internet seemed almost universal. It seems that no matter where one lives, the serviceable speed and bandwidth has degraded noticeably…with no Internet Service Provider able to offer any reasonable explanation or solution. Other symptoms reported are laptops and mobile (cell) phones shutting down and restarting. Erratic message sending or messages and emails that went missing into cyberspace. Hard drives crashing, data missing, and in some cases entire operating systems becoming unstable or inoperable, requiring a reinstallation.
One of my clients forwarded the following dissertation about what might be occurring. It’s entitled “Dis-Equilibrium and the Human Brain” by Sheilagh Durkin. You can download the Adobe PDF of the file below.
My own take on these electronic and communications issues is two-fold. First, Uranus went retrograde on July 27th, and won’t go direct again until December 27th. I feel that Uranus governs things electrical, and when Uranus was in the sign of Aquarius during the 1990’s it showed how influential it was in birthing the revolution in electronic computing and hand-held communications equipment. So, don’t expect things to ease much until after New Year’s Day, when Uranus gets up a head of steam and begins to move forward again. What the lesson might be here is to show us how overly dependent and addicted we’ve become to our gadgets. This recent article focuses on how we're obsessed with mobile computing platforms – click here to view the article.
Another more intriguing factor is geopathic stress. I have been feeling for some time the deep symbiotic connect between the ecosphere of our planet, particularly its electro-magnetic field, and the Sun’s sunspot and CME (coronal mass ejections) cycles. We’re not in a solar maximum cycle, but since late June there have been long periods of geomagnetic storming induced by CME’s and coronal streams of super-charged particles streaming into the upper atmosphere. I’ve heard that some geophysicists are concerned that erratic solar activity is affecting the Earth’s magnetic core, the tides, the gravitational fields, and also our biological functions.
I’m still researching and compiling links and articles and hopefully provide a list in the next issue. Perhaps Gaia’s awakening is getting quiet active, and merits a closer understanding. There is also new data indicating that solar activity is the main driver of our weather patterns, and El Nino’ and El Nina’ in the eastern and central Pacific Ocean. The non-existent summer in Ireland may be by-product of processes involving our Sun we’re just beginning to understand. The solar effects may also extend to the increase in tectonic activity, with larger quakes and more volcanic activity lighting up the headlines for the past three months. People who are electro-sensitive or empathic react to geopathic stress and solar activity, and the symptoms are quite pronounced for some in the emotional and psychological changes they experience. Some exhibit strong physical reactions that feel quite real, but medical testing cannot detect as yet. Perhaps the instrumentation used is still not sensitive enough to register the effects of magnetic fluctuations on the human cellular structures. More to follow in the next issue!
P.S. To underscore the weirdness, a blog of mine from July 15th started appearing in my subscriber's inboxes today, and I have no clue how it happened!
Black Monday Special Report:
Last Monday (August 24th) the world financial markets reacted very negatively to what was happening on the China's stock exchange. It seems that most folks were surprised by the ferocity of how it impacted the other exchanges around the world. I’ve been watching the Chinese exchange since late July when a sell-off began that no one in China could figure out. Steadily the losses climbed…and the Chinese authorities stood by and did nothing. Was it insider trading? Was the Chinese dominance in manufacturing and finance finally overheating and losing forward momentum? The downward spiral continued, and the Chinese central bank did nothing to shore up its currency. However, it did start to quietly sell off U.S.Treasury bonds These bonds are traded by the U.S. government to fund the cash it buys from the Federal Reserve, the American central bank. The money raised from the treasury bonds keeps the U.S liquidity going. They are seen as an investment, with yields calculated over decades in the future based on projected growth. If growth slows down, then the bonds lose value. It is estimated that China has 2-3 trillion dollars worth of U.S. bonds. If it starts selling them in large enough quantities to shore up its own growth and protect the Yuan, then investors will begin to lose confidence and sell off stocks and commodities based on the speculation of a downturn economically. Last week the first wave hit on August 21s, when the U.S. stock index, the Dow Jones lost over 300 points. The next day the losses climbed to 550 plus points. This past Monday panic set in.

Predictive astrology is a risky business. Nonetheless I am paying attention to what some of the best ones are talking about just now, because a few of them accurately predicted the events of the past 10 days. And they don’t see an end to the bumpy ride either. So I am preparing a three-part series about many interrelated topics for the months of September and October, and they will post independently from the usual astrological reports. Part of this series will be focusing on our current beliefs about money, debt, economics and sustainability and spirituality and how we may be at a crossroads that could force us to dramatically alter our viewpoints about our culture so that we can survive and thrive in a new way on this planet.
Thanks for reading and sharing the Revealing the Mystery Blog, and may your experience of the Supermoon and all the exciting changes be a blessing to you. Hang in there and take good care of yourself.
New Moon in Cancer - July 16th, 2:25 AM BST London, United Kingdom (see chart below)
Well, this is another in a series of lunations that seems to hold so much energy for change at fundamental levels. And this one will go into the record books because of the flyby of Pluto that is revealing so much new data. Our data banks are getting triggered too…read on.
The Sun-Moon in Cancer is all about Love, Nurturing, and warm fuzzies. It is also about SECURITY and the desire for strong, comfortable and stable situations, relationships and surroundings. As you may have noticed, events both personal and planetary seem to fly in the face of real security lately. There are ongoing crises in Greece, the continued destabilization of the Eurozone, of Syria, the Middle East, and other hot spots around the globe. As we focus on the themes of this New Moon, I also would caution against getting too carried away with yourself, or your utopian visions. The polarity of Cancer is Capricorn, and there’s the rub. Capricorn is ruled by Saturn, and this New Moon loosely trines the ongoing Saturn in Scorpio retrograde. It will be an easy flow of feelings coming up…some from the present moment, but mostly from the past, but with a strength and poignancy that may surprise you.
No matter how one wants to paint this New Moon, the fact is that there are four major players in retrograde right now – Pluto, Saturn, Chiron and Neptune. Uranus and Venus will join the throng around July 25th-26th, and add extra punch to the burn off of extraneous ego stuff. This is where we will really need huge doses of self-Love and self-acceptance. Nothing about our ego needs to be killed off or excluded (just turn down the volume), and all it takes for us to navigate these energies are massive doses of compassion (Sun-Moon in Cancer). The desire to heal and integrate our pain (Chiron) and the strength of the evolutionary impulse (Pluto) will help us to persevere (Saturn) and reach a new level of maturity and interdependence (Uranus). Our vision (Neptune) will become clearer and more easily grasped by this autumn, as each of the outer transpersonal planets gradually returns to direct motion. Saturn is first, on August 2nd, followed by Pluto in mid-September. There will be Love, and after the tears we will understand what all of this was for.
The Sun-Moon square to Uranus and the dwarf planet Eris will stimulate our desire to finally begin the process of jettisoning any structures or forms we have felt enslaved by or beholden to. If it doesn’t feel like fun, it probably isn’t, so time to move away from that which no longer floats your boat and has started to feel like an obligation without end. We all know what happens if we sit on a dime for too long…the Universe, or your own Soul, will drive the point home a bit more emphatically, or rearrange things so that it becomes imperative to change the situation…or leave it. Sometimes a shift in perspective does the trick, but in this case, the evolutionary calling is to dissolve most, if not all, of the old forms. What is being called for here is what is sustainable, not for what is just profitable.
Finally, Venus will enter Virgo briefly, make a weak aspect to the Nodal Axis, and then go underground (retrograde) for 40 days in Leo. The Venus retrograde is a review about our values and connections with personal relationships. Or, our values might be something as mundane as considering to redecorate a room in your home, or do some landscaping in the garden. However, interpersonal relationships will be on the brain and in the heart, whether there is something tangible going on not.
Hard to pin this one down, but if something needs to be ended, it will end. If something needs healing and reconciliation so that moving forward together is then possible, it will occur now. If something karmic is up, it will find expression. And, something new may possibly show up that was unexpected! However, under a retrograde, a new relationship may become a real challenge or take you on a roller-coaster ride before flinging you overboard. Be cautious – there may be some shady characters that show up to teach you a real lesson in discernment! The retrograde ends around September 6th-7th, but the shadow period won’t be over till October 9th when Venus re-enters Virgo.
The energies this week will begin to settle by the weekend, so don’t lose your cool or your heart. I highly recommend extreme self-care during this next three to six weeks. When I say “self-care” I also include in that the choice to be vulnerable enough to ask for support from others, including nurturing, hugs, and a good set of ears. Also, diplomacy now will go a long way towards healing and renewal of love and affection later. We are all in this together, and its all a bit bigger than us too. Kindness counts. Sometimes we need space, or we need to give others the space. Sometimes closeness will be more in step with what is needed. Above all, with Pluto, Chiron and Saturn in the framework, telling the truth to ourselves and others, without blame or without expectation, will be the wisest course. A sense of humor and some laughs goes a long way as well.
Till next time, be gentle...
P.S. Here’s a little ditty to help smooth things along...

May 2nd, 2015
I’ll be brief. This Full Moon has so much baggage attached to it you’ll need a forklift or a crane to deal with it. The upside is that it’s about exposing what has been denied. The downside is that it’s about exposing what’s still being denied. Whoops!
Supposedly The Buddha (the Enlightened One) was born when there was a Full Moon in Scorpio/Taurus. If so, then this is a time that makes a strong case for it being necessary to see all of the false demons and paper tigers that are coming at us from under the rug of our subconscious. In other words, calling out denial is an act of enlightenment. Maybe you’ll see a self-sabotaging belief or attachment to a situation that’s been sucking on your Life Force for far too long. Remove that leech, banish that vampire! Or, perhaps someone close to you will reveal a Mr Hyde or Ms. Hyde side of their persona you’d never had an inkling was there in the first place. Call out the Pest Removal crew…and free yourself!
The Sun is at 13 degrees of Taurus (celebrate our roots), the Moon is at 13 degrees of Scorpio (uncomfortable or held emotions). Those middle degrees are intense! The other players that are close to that degree are Pluto at 15 Capricorn (retrograde – “where’s my power?”), Jupiter at 13 Leo (“I’m in charge, aren’t I?”), Black Moon Lilith at 17 Virgo (“Don’t disrespect me!”), and Vesta at 16 Pisces (“What are my beliefs, and do they still work?”). But wait, there’s more!
When you examine the center of this chart (see Figure 1 below) the aspect lines form an almost perfect hexagon, or six-pointed star. Whenever you have that geometry you also get a Mystic Rectangle between four points of the star (see Figure 2 below). Trace imaginary lines from the South Node in Aries (karmic baggage) to Mercury in Gemini (more data please!), North Node in Libra (my Authentic Soul Desire in Sustainable Relationship) to Saturn in Sagittarius (What is the truth here?), and there it is! A Mystic Rectangle is formed by four sextiles (60 degrees of separation), whereas a Grand Trine is formed between three points or planets at 120 degrees of separation. Get two Grand Trines interlinked and you get a Hexagon. You get “flow” with the Hexagon, and you get a high degree of synchronization with the four planets or points within the Mystic Rectangle.
All this adds up to a great deal of power flowing from point to point to aid in the process of the Full Moon. In this case, letting go of what no longer serves, and doing whatever mourning or grieving that is needed in order to EN-LIGHTEN yourself of a karmic load. The other side of this configuration is the EM-POWERMENT of individuals to do some kind of soul-retrieval work, bringing back disowned or lost parts of the Psyche that were displaced due to being inappropriately being blamed for something, blaming oneself about something (regret), or splitting off parts of ourselves that we ditched into a gutter out of fear that we’d be judged or exiled for being unworthy. With Black Moon Lilith, Pluto and the Scorpio Moon in the mix, this is an especially potent time for women to reclaim their true shamanic roots.
With Uranus and Pluto still in strong aspect by a tense square, some of your soul retrieval work may take novel twists or turns. Or, your intensity around self-reclamation may earn you the title “uncaring” or worse. This event does have a tone of “don’t take anything personal”, but of course, it will be taken in just that way…for now. Weather the raging storms, and you will break into the clear, and so will everyone else.
If all this seems confusing, try not to let it drop you into overwhelm. Do you know a bit about your birth chart? Then look to see where you have anything around 10-15 degrees of Taurus and Scorpio. Look at which house Venus rules (Taurus or Libra), and also where Pluto falls in your chart (co-ruler of Scorpio). Those positions will give you a hint what the themes of the denial/release are about, while the placement of the Sun and Moon, Pluto, etc. will show the houses where the activations will occur.
Although this Lunation occurs Sunday in some parts of the globe, and Monday in the rest, the effects will be more visible for the next two weeks. In other words, there may not be any fireworks to observe on Bank Holiday Monday in Britain and Ireland. Too wet out there anyway (if you live there, you know what I mean). The upwelling will become apparent as the days tick off towards the New Moon in Taurus on the 18th of May, the next starting point in these exciting, but sometimes weird, times.
Don’t book any wooden riverboat trips down Denial, and may the stars be ever in your favor.
And as always, Peace,
P.S. The website will be undergoing a major makeover during this coming week or so...it too desires to become enlightened :-). So, pardon our dust. Thanks!
P.P.S. I find it wildly ironic that the day after this Full Moon is "Cinco de Mayo", which celebrates a major victory by Mexico against an invasion by France in 1862. Enjoy your favorite chilli, burrito or tostada with a Dos Equis, Carta Blanca or Pacifico brew, and declare your Yindependence. Ole'!
