Total Eclipse of the Heart
STATE OF THE PLANET UPDATE
“Total Eclipse of the Heart”
November 7th, 2022
I am on sabbatical I know, but after investigating a bit, I am strongly persuaded to provide some of my 2 Cents around tomorrow’s Total Lunar Eclipse/Full Moon in Scorpio. Now say that last bit, real fast!
Da Factoids -
I’m including a heavily annotated chart so you can follow the bouncing ball. Of course, if you have anything pertinent in Gemini, Sagittarius. Virgo or Scorpio and either by conjunction (within 3 degrees sensitivity), square (90 degrees) or opposition (180 degrees) you will be heavily influenced or affected. This eclipse will have quite an impact on the world consciousness, for good or ill, as it is just one of the precursors to the ingress of Pluto from Capricorn into Aquarius on March 23rd at approximately 1:14pm GMT.
Like Pluto’s Capricorn ingress on January 25th, 2008, this starts out as a bit of back-and-forth thing. Pluto may enter Aquarius on March 23rd, 2023, but it goes retrograde on June 11th, 2023, and travels backwards into Capricorn until January 24th, 2024! He then stays in Aquarius until September 1st, 2024, and re-enters Aquarius for good on November 19th, 2024. Funny that November 19th, 2022, is also the day that Mars Retrograde in Gemini squares to Neptune in Pisces retrograde this coming month. Hmm….
All in all, Pluto has been in Capricorn for almost 15-16 years. When he enters Aquarius, it is a hitch that lasts till January 19th, 2044. That’s a long time, and I may not be around then to see it happen. You probably will though.
Da Eclipse –
This event is loaded. That’s said because the U.S.A. Congressional midterm elections happen at the same time. See the chart details:
The presence of Uranus retrograding in Taurus right on this Moon in Taurus is very significant and can foment disorder and misperception in spades. This will also probably ramp up the anxiety around inflation, values in general, and food production and distribution. Try not to get caught up in the hysteria.
Will this also announce the further decline of Pax Americana? Will the U.S. no longer lead the world but follow it (China?). Is there a new Civil War brewing on the American horizon? These points are all valid but doesn’t mean they are set it stone. With Mars Retrograde in Gemini during the whole phase we get to sit with our “got to do something!” energy and think about it. Not as appetizing for a conditioned populace for getting stuff done, but it’s got to be.
With Mars retrograde in Gemini, the frustrations brewing in the mass consciousness may get processed through personal communications. It will be essential that we work with the pressure so we can weigh in on every issue of the day. Reflect more than you react. Protect your energy. Your future self will thank you for it.
Mars retrograde in Gemini represents a cutting edge, decisive action, severing. When the Warrior is in the sign of the twins, our wit can be our shield or our stumbling block. During this time, pens and keystrokes are our swords, and flexibility is our skill to practice. However. It is a time that is right for miscommunication and downright fake news. Watch how my false or unsubstantiated statements surface during this time. It may be better to not get too caught up in all of it, as it will be a ball of yarn…difficult to untangle.
If you would like the Vedic (or Hindu) perspective on this entire transit, you might want to watch this excellent piece by Joni Patry: https://youtu.be/c5o9wRK-BdA. Remember...I offer the Western or Tropical astrological and spiritual view.
P.S. There's an eclipse path map at the end of this article. Check it out!
Da Other Stuff -
So many aspects to talk about! Jupiter sits retrograde at the 29th (Anaretic) degree of Pisces. Talk about fogginess! This aspect can create false hopes, ideals, or expectations. It doesn’t hold there though, and Jupiter is uncomfortable being the instigator. More a giver of boons than bummers, Jupiter is ready to go direct, which he will on December 20th, 2022. Jupiter in the sign of Pisces rules the qualities of spiritual matters, and he has been a balancing influence on all the zaniness. Retrograding in Pisces indicates that you need to take your spiritual thoughts and practices inside, where they can’t be seen. A station at the 29th Degree of Pisces emphasizes this point. You can’t wear your "wokeness" on your sleeve.
Saturn in Aquarius squares the whole thing, adding an element of authority and seriousness to the proceedings. We didn’t need this, but we have it. Watch that you don’t take it all on as the bottom line when next Tuesday rolls around. Saturn does enter Pisces as follows in this link: https://cafeastrology.com/events/saturn-enters-pisces/
Lastly Pluto in the late degrees of Capricorn is opposing transiting Black Moon Lilith and Pallas Athene at this moment. Emotions might run amok as Black Moon Lilith soundly rejects any attempts by the patriarchy to continue the growth and progress mantra, and the opposition to Pallas Athene may trumpet that a new approach is entirely necessary now. There is room for compromise, but with Pallas and BML conjunct in Cancer and opposed by Pluto, there is precious little wiggle room. This transit could propel us towards a more egalitarian society and be very positive or plunge us full-time into transhumanism and authoritarianism. The transit of Saturn in Aquarius, especially in 2021, should all give us pause. More on this major event later in the year.
Da Main Event...now? -
We will have to contend with the 2.5 months that Mars is retrograding in Gemini and the ingresses next spring of Saturn entering Pisces and Pluto entering Aquarius. The Mars thing could trigger a sense that something does need doing now, but with a retrograde in Gemini this energy isn’t just internalized but could be duplicitous as well. What does one do? Sit and wait is my advice. Don’t panic or over-compensate right now and try to remain patient and respond to whatever is happening in the moment (see above).
Oh, and I am recovering well and may pop up with a blog or podcast or two between now and May 1st, 2023. That’s kind of my date for re-emergence. Just saying…
In the meantime, don’t ever let the planets and stars dictate anything to your mind, but count them as influences we placed there to instruct and remind us of who we are. We’re never helpless, nor hopeless…unless we believe it to be so.
Blessings on your journey,

Alice in Wonderingland
STATE OF THE PLANET UPDATE
“Alice in Wonderingland”
May 5th, 2022
"Who are you?" said the Caterpillar.
Alice replied, rather shyly, "I-I hardly know, Sir, just at present-at least I know who I was when I got up this morning, but I think I must have been changed several times since then."
"What do you mean by that?" said the Caterpillar, sternly. "Explain yourself!"
"I can't explain myself, I'm afraid, Sir," said Alice, "because I am not myself, you see."
– Alice in Wonderland
Are things feeling a bit ‘odd’ to you of late? Has your dream life picked up considerably, but you can’t make heads or tails about what they might mean? Felt spacey, light-headed, or dizzy, or like you’re walking in a dream or a starring in a cartoon. Maybe you've fallen down the rabbit hole, and are wondering around in Wonderland? Well, that’s the psychic and astrological space between the eclipse that just occurred on April 30th, and the one coming up on May 16th. It’s also being amped up in other ways, which I’ll get to momentarily.
Another thing about the space we’re currently traveling through isn’t something else to be wary of, or apprehensive about. Despite the headlines, or the gossip, not all that is happening on our planet is a cause for concern or over-reaction. If some of my previous articles have put you on high alert about certain aspects of the current situation we are experiencing or witnessing, I have not shared from a place of trying to create fear or anxiety, but from a place of love and a desire to inform and empower you.
We are all changing and being changed at such an accelerated pace that some disorientation is perfectly normal. Considering the level and intensity of the times we are living through, inside a predominantly digital environment, it will affect our perceptions and our assumptions or judgments about those perceptions. This is the nature of digital…it is binary, and either something is on or off, 0 or 1, left or right, up or down, right or wrong.
There isn’t very much room or latitude for both/and, or neutrality. Hence all the polarization and atomization of our cultures. Many of our institutional structures are founded on the dualistic model, and it has permeated human consciousness ever since the beginnings of “civilization”. Prior to that, our orientations were predominantly inclusive. Our ancestors weren’t striving for unity, they were already living it to a certain degree. They intuitively understood their place within the fabric of Nature and the heavens. They had no illusions about the intimate interplay between the elements, the environment and themselves. They accepted all of it as something they were part and parcel of.
Since those long-forgotten times, history has happened, and we have lost some very precious aspects of our humanity. As a result, we created religions and other spiritual systems with rules to try understanding the world around us and come to grips with the main 5 questions before all of humanity – who am I, why am I here, where am I, what do I do with this, and what does it all mean? Being orphaned from our original primordial consciousness has divorced us from knowing and thrown us into bicameral confusion via the dualistic mind. We are predominantly mental creatures these days, and our intuitive and instinctual natures are either dormant, suppressed or extremely subservient to the orientation we have to the mind created self. The digital age has not only accelerated our propensity to living in a disembodied state almost 24/7, but it has also influenced human consciousness into a desire to emulate or merge with technology itself. From where I sit, this situation is unsustainable and an evolutionary dead end.
The astrology of our times is mirroring this situation back to us, hoping that we’ll catch on and connect the dots before we are totally subsumed into a trance-like hive mind. The event of the partial Solar Eclipse on 30th of April introduced us to some encouraging energies and laid out before us some challenges as well. Uranus conjunct the Sun-Moon at 10 Taurus, along with a conjunction of Jupiter, Venus, and Mars in the late degrees of Pisces, has emphasized our dissociative state of awareness while at the same time trying to awaken us to our predicament of being orphaned from our true and natural sentient state of beingness. Hence the dreamy sort of stumbling around effect some of you may be encountering. However, as I mentioned earlier, the astrology is merely reflecting an existing situation. The causative factors are numerous and are triggered and amplified by the transiting aspects in astrology.
Factor 1: The Schumann Resonance has been off the charts since April 29th. This is most likely in response to the series of X-Class flares our star has been generating off and on since mid-April.
Factor 2: Geomagnetic storms are more frequent. (See Solar activity)
Factor 3: Collective or consensus reality – the dominator culture is ramping things up on several fronts locally and globally: the situation in the Ukraine, hyper-inflationary policies and hidden price-gouging putting downward pressure on the middle class and poor. The Oil Giants are currently celebrating bumper profits in the 1st fiscal quarter of 2022. Celebrity distractions (Heard-Depp hearings), and politics as usual round out the list.
Factor 4: The pandemic mentality hasn’t gone away entirely, while at the same time a growing body of evidence is pointing out that the responses to the whole thing may be making things worse many times over. In the U.K. the highest number of new cases called Covid-19 (or one of the variants) are among those who have received both jabs plus one and even two boosters. (I will let you draw your own conclusions from that what you will. If you want the links to verifiable data in this regard, please email me at email@example.com. My intel is primarily gleaned from government databases and websites.)
The Merry Month of May has plenty of activation points to cover, so here’s the menu:
May 10th – Mercury turns stationary retrograde at 4 degrees and 51 minutes of Gemini Time: 12:48pm BST. Please, please, please, back up your data on all your digital devices well ahead of the 10th.
May 11th – Jupiter ingress into Aries at 00:44am BST
May 13th – The Sun conjuncts the North Node at 22 degrees of Taurus
May 16th – Full Moon Total Lunar Eclipse at 25 degrees of Taurus, conjunct the Lunar Nodes at 22 Taurus. Chiron and Venus are conjunct at 14 plus of Aries, Mars is conjunct Neptune at 23 plus degrees of Pisces, and Saturn at 24 Aquarius is still square to the Lunar Nodes. (chart below blog)
All of the above is a significant chronology to be sure, but the main event is the bookend eclipse on May 16th. This completes, or rather initiates, the first eclipse pattern for 2022.
In a nutshell this Lunar Eclipse will set the tone for the next six months or so. Taurus-Scorpio is about security and acquisition mixed with desire and power, around food, shelter, sex, money, and VALUES! Uranus is too far away from this eclipse to add much to it, but he’s already had his input back on April 30th. I’d look for this eclipse to bring more to the light of awareness about how we are all being conned out of our humanity by the promises of a shiny new utopia that openly states that “we will own nothing and be happy.” That quote is from Klaus Schwab and the World Economic Forum’s stated goal to digitize humanity and our institutions into a global control grid.
We will also be asked to examine our acquired values and dig deeper to find our true values…those ones that our ancestors held as sacred: love, empathy, embodied living, compassion, cooperation, mutual respect, and a universal recognition of the oneness of all Life, a Life with Divine origination.
What may thwart or distort this will be the Mars-Neptune conjunction in Pisces. More distortion of the truth, or facts…take your pick. Twisting realities to suit a narrow agenda. Obliterating information and data crucial to personal or collective decision-making via censorship and state security public relations statements. Think the “memory hole” from Orwell’s book “1984”. You may be told that something you saw somewhere, no matter how briefly, never existed in the first place. With everything and everyone logged into the “cloud”, making data disappear is a relatively easy affair. More celebrity dramas or entertainment distractions will proliferate. Meanwhile the Saturn effect on the Nodes will provide a backdrop of the same “you need to do what everyone else is doing for the good of all” messaging. Maybe Covid restrictions will resurface. We’ll see.
The buffer will be provided by Chiron meeting Venus in Aries. Chiron in Aries is symbolic of the right of being an individual...an individuated and unique being, and that this a divine birth right that no other can abrogate or take away from you, unless you acquiesce to it being done. Imagine a lone individual standing up to collective power, and you get the idea. The “Tank Man” photo from the time of the democracy movement in China that brought on the tragedy of the massacre at Tiananmen Square in Beijing comes to mind. One person, standing in front of a line of battle tanks, and refusing to move out of the way, is a compelling example of the symbology of Chiron’s transit through Aries. Adding Venus into the mix only amplifies the message to embrace and love our uniqueness and individuality, and everyone else’s right to the same thoroughly and totally.
This configuration of Venus-Chiron will help us to understand the meaning of the sudden reversal, or intended reversal, of the controversial "Roe versus Wade" Supreme Court ruling in a preliminary brief that was leaked earlier this week. This intended revelation has galvanized women to speak out against the ongoing efforts of the patriarchal forces to claw back women’s rights, and everyone’s divine right of sovereignty and choice in all matters, including what you allow or don’t allow to happen with one’s body.
With the Nodes in Scorpio-Taurus, one can also see the interplay of the issues about fertility, sexual preferences, childbearing, motherhood, and childrearing coming up at this juncture. Is there a war on women? Of course, there has been…for millennia. Also, a war on our biology and sexuality. The heritage and user’s manual for the conservative patriarchal mindset is rooted in the Judeo-Christian doctrines. Those belief systems originated with A.I. Not the A.I. of Silicon Valley fame, the alien A.I. that helped to foster the monotheistic father-God religions. This scenario is clearly delineated in the Gnostic gospels, known as the Nag Hammadi Codices. It is plain to see that these issues have become politicized over the past 30-40 years. Politics and religion do not have carte blanche to impose anything on anyone that does not align with the inner values of the individual. Venus-Chiron will be about self-knowledge and self-love.
It now appears to be a war on humanity itself, or at the very least, the organic version of us. The original organic human being is seen by transhumanists as messy, imperfect, and fatally flawed...and prone to illness and death. This perception is birthed and fostered by A.I. (artificial intelligence), and with our culture becoming ever more ensconced in a digital framework it will only hasten the demise of our species, as we have known it.
In summary, I feel this eclipse cycle will usher in a resurgence of individual willpower, a will to not just resist an imposed order from the past, but to work in concert with a wider global awareness that if we can stand up for ourselves adequately, we can work in cooperation with others more effectively. The gaps are widening in many areas of our human family, and it will be necessary to remember that differences of opinion of mindset does not obviate the reality of our inherent oneness or divine origins.
Love, a realistic love, based on the timeless spiritual values of respect for the choices and sovereignty of others, also includes the knowing that we are the author(ity) in our lives. As such, the agendas of others cannot include domination of the “other”, in any form. The time of centralized authority is already past, but the progenitors of it have refused to acknowledge it and continue to pursue an insane course of activity. In other words, respect others’ choices, but do not allow other’s choices to take a higher priority than that. Don’t betray yourself or your values out of fear or obligation.
Which brings us full circle to the subject line of this blog, Alice’s conversation with the Caterpillar. No matter how selfish it might feel to your or my ego, completely accepting and celebrating Who We Are, as we are right now, is essential. Once we realize that knowing we relax into trusting ourselves, and our own guidance. All deeper knowing comes from this step towards caring for the Self unconditionally. This is the crux of becoming self-actualized, and it is the primary purpose of our life’s journey, both here and beyond. For example, you could choose to realize that judging yourself about your flaws is not a productive strategy for joy and inner peace. Difficulty in accepting the bits we judge as wrong in ourselves is made a thousand times worse by accepting the judgment of others, or an outer authority, as valid. This is the origin of guilt and shame…an outer authority declaring your fatal flaws, your original sins, and us believing it!
Between now and the bookend Eclipse of May 16th, take some steps to loving the totality of you, just as you are in this moment. Doing mirror work is a useful tool for such an exploration. Conscious deep breathwork is another. One of my favourites is long walks in Nature, where I can breathe deeply into my body and feel the walls between myself, my form and the outer natural world dissolve. It’s an "always on" love affair…with Nature. Allow Her in. This is the message of the North Node in Taurus too…to honour the Mother inside each one of us.
We have never been alone, and never will be. What an adventure!

On the next episode of "Revealing the Mysteries" which
airs LIVE this coming Sunday, May 8th 2022
Show Synopsis: Well, I’m back in the broadcaster’s chair again, and there’s loads to chat about as we sit between the Solar Eclipse of April 30th and the upcoming Total Lunar Eclipse on May 16th. If you feel like you’re starring in some sort of animated film or cartoon, then you’re not alone. Many have been noticed a kind of Alice in Wonderland quality in the atmosphere since the solar eclipse. Eclipses make things more unhinged, reveal stuff that was hidden. This pair of eclipses seems uber important on several levels, mainly because of the signs involved. Scorpio is focused on issues of power, secrets, and the life-death cycle. Taurus is focused on issues around security and certainty in a number of areas, one of which is food and the other is money (resources). The inflationary pressures, couple with supply chain problems are increasing. The question of the right to have an abortion in the United States is now under threat. Celebrity trials dominate to distract us from what really matters. Is something about to go “pop”? Tune in to find out.
Showtime is 6:30pm BST, 13:30pm EDT, and 10:30am PDT.

Nature Bats Last?
“Nature Bats Last?”
March 17th, 2022
Spring is in the air, and all around. Buds are budding, birds are tweeting (the real deal), and although not all is at peace in this world, the unmistakable lift of sunshine and greenery is beginning to make its resurgence in the Northern Hemisphere.
Yes, there are some nasty floods occurring in Oz, and Japan was rocked with an earthquake the other day. The ongoing Ukrainian crisis is a real deep source of anxiety for many the world over, but I am wondering how we suddenly moved on from Covid-19 to be on the brink of WWIII (the Ukrainian President's words, not Pootin's or anyone else for that matter). I don't need to tell you how bad things are, but what could I possibly tell you to do about it all? Inflation, the Russians, the lawlessness at the gas pumps? Where does it all end?
If you are feeling that some of what I am saying sounds familiar, then it should be. Watch a clip from the original film from 1976 below this paragraph. Was this prophesy, or coincidence? Perhaps we all might feel a bit lighter if we allowed ourselves the freedom to express our innermost feelings openly and honestly, instead of carrying on in silence.
Though the once reliable structures and institutions seem to be failing or resorting to trying to reassert their dominion over most of humanity, we must look inwardly for the solutions now. Our Sun and our planet are upping the ante to precipitate change on a massive scale. Unless we as a species heed the not-so-subtle signs that if we don't change our priorities and direction, then it will no longer be our choice...it will be imposed by forces beyond comprehension or control.
Back when I was living in Eugene, Oregon in the mid-1980's, I'd occasionally spot this bumper sticker on the back of a vehicle parked near the local health food store. "Nature Bats Last" was the stark message. At that time there was a very persistent movement by hippies and "tree huggers" to stop the cutting of old growth forests on Bureau of Land Management lands in Oregon and Washington states. Sometimes the protests would involve "tree-sitting", where someone would climb into the upper branches of an ancient Douglas fir and make camp there, daring the logging crews to cut it down.
Standoffs like this would wear on for weeks on end, until some authority or another climbed up after them and forcibly took them into custody. Then the chainsaws would rumble into life once again, and soon the tree was down. Was that bumper sticker a piece of wishful thinking, asking the Planet to come to the rescue of itself? Or was it perhaps a desire for Nature to punish the chainsaw swordsmen? Or does it have more weight than that? Will Nature eventually wake up and extract justice to rebalance itself? One can usually say, "only time will tell", but I feel that time may well be upon us.
One way to educate yourself about Gaia-Sophia's nature, or the intelligence of the planet Herself, is to take a cruise through the Sophianic Mythos. You can access the source material here. From my perspective all the powers at the disposal of the so-called "elite" or the planetary controllers is entirely false and temporal. They cannot circumvent or overthrow Nature, that is a fantasy. They can and do attempt to do that to the biosphere and for most of humanity, but it is a project doomed to failure, unless we continue to acquiesce and do nothing to hinder or change it.
Our Mother is wise, but sometimes capricious. She is very capable of defending Her own welfare, and the welfare of all Life She birthed here eons ago. Her dream of us becoming divinely human and living in resonance with Her and all the Cosmos becomes more prevalent, we are all invited at this Spring Equinox to consciously choose to remember who we really are, where we really came from, and who and what our divine planetary Mother truly is all about. She asks us to cooperate, to repatriate ourselves to Her wisdom, to Her ways. In that intention is the potential of reawakening our original source codes at a cellular level. Our Solar selves are also receiving meta downloads of divine intelligence to guide our bodies and souls into greater appreciation of our home world, and our Home within. If we can find out what our true origins and Story is, the rest will be much easier.
Nature doesn't have to bat last and end the experiment before more damage is inflicted. We do have the free will to eliminate ourselves, but that accomplishes nothing. Earth will continue with or without us. It is a much juicier and happier Story if we continue with Her. At least that is what I feel.
May your acknowledgement, ceremonies, and rituals this Sunday express your fondest desire for your dreams to come true, but also for all beings of whatever type to receive the blessings of a new beginnings and new opportunities here at the start of a new astrological year.
Stats: The Equinox occurs at precisely 15:33 GMT, Sunday, March 20th in the U.K. Yes, that's 3:33pm! That translates to 8:33am PDST for the U.S. West Coast, and 11:33am EDST for the East Coast. It is preceded by the Full Moon at 27 degrees of Virgo today, March 18th 2022. Please refer to the attached charts below for more detail.

On the next episode of "Revealing the Mysteries" which
airs this coming Sunday, March 20th, 2022
Synopsis: Spring has sprung in the Northern latitudes. Everywhere all manner of green growing stuff is emerging from the ground and poking up between paving blocks and sidewalk seams. No matter how many tons of herbicides or whatever we whack the Earth with, She keeps on giving and growing. The Spring Equinox occurs Sunday, March 20th at 3:33pm UT, right after a Full Moon in late Virgo and with Venus and Mars squaring Uranus. The Great Revealing is now underway! Official narratives are being challenged and dissolving as more and more souls are waking up like weeds and sprouting through the cracks! In this episode I’ll be dissecting the Equinox chart, share about what’s in the headlines and how it relates to the Astro events, and discuss the deeper intelligence at play within sunlight, and how the organic information codes and infusions that our Sun is emanating via solar winds and Coronal Mass Ejections and lighting up our DNA. With the Covid narrative crumbling other agendas have now been rolled out and are in play. Welcome to the next level!
Showtime is 5:30pm GMT, 13:30am EDST, and 10:30am PDST.
