TE OF THE PLANET

June 9th, 2022
Yes, I have blatantly plagiarized the title of a recently released film starring Michelle Yeoh. I've not even had the pleasure of seeing this work of cinematic art yet, but I am familiar enough with the plot to know that the central character could represent any one of us. If you've seen it, you will know what Michelle's character is facing. An audit by the Internal Revenue Service, and dilapidated laundry business barely able to provide a living for her and her bumbling husband, and strangers popping in from the future asking for her help to save the world. All in a day's work I'd say!
There are two sides or stories to the conundrum that the star of the movie, and us, all face. One side is all about the amount of effort and attention most of humanity is forced to expend just to stay afloat financially or socially in the current world structure. Most of the folks I know are simply exhaustipated (wiped out) by the demands of the daily routine, and the expectations arriving from all directions. Food shopping and prep, earning enough to pay for the food, rent/mortgage, put Junior through college, pay the bills, pay the taxes, keep dealing with 2-factor authentication every time you want to log into something, dealing with the partner, the in-laws, the neighbor who is building an extension on their home (you cannot hear yourself think, much less run an at-home business!), and the list goes on and on.
The other side of this circus is the possible reality that unity consciousness might bring to us if we had every barrier to it suddenly lifted. We just might flame out and disappear with the sheer immensity of seeing, knowing, and feeling everything, everywhere, all at once. Is that what Spirit/God/Goddess/All That Is experiences? How can one know for sure? How in the heck does the Great Spirit cope with all that anyway? These are some of the questions that I entertain when I wake up in the middle of the night.
One thing I can report on, is that when I had a unity experience about a year after my kundalini awakening occurred in 1994, it didn't feel at all like I imagined it to feel. It was...intimate, quiet, intense and relaxing all at the same time. Like being cradled in the arms of one's mother, yet totally alert and aware...of everything! Not just that, but aware that Everything is You, and You are in or are part of Everything. The aftermath or come-down was a devastating one for my ego...which was to be emotionally overwhelmed with gratitude, awe, wonder and ecstasy. Can you feel so much ecstasy without exploding? I guess so, cause I'm writing about it here.
The former side, the crazy upside-down busier than I have a right to be world is just plain nuts in my view. Our culture promotes and rewards striving and hard work, but it never praises anyone who chooses a path or inner or outer peace. Those types are lazy, or a burden on society. Most of my childhood programming centered on becoming a "productive member of society", which is code for a good, obedient little consumer. My mother's messages supported all of that - "go along to get along" or "don't rock the boat", and loving statements like that.
Fortunately, many of us (and if you're reading this you are probably part of this tribe) sort of awakened from our sleepwalking. Maybe some of us cottoned on to the con game no one else saw at a very early age. Others have had a midlife crisis, a divorce, and serious illness, a relationship gone bad, and then awaken during or after those event(s). We begin to REMEMBER. We have few words to describe it, but we somehow know that Life wasn't necessarily meant to be this mad or busy, or so full of compromises. Our souls knew better, and we left behind what we previously embraced, for it no longer resonated, no longer entranced us.
There are three upcoming astrological markers that will dovetail into the main points I’m sharing here. All the action happens on June 11th, and on both sides of June 15th-16th.
On June 11th at 11:51pm BST (10:51pm UT) transiting Venus meets up with and kisses Uranus at 16 degrees of Taurus. Can you say “unusual” or “unconventional” when it comes to sexual loving, flings with the opposite or same sex, and coming to terms with what our true natural values and needs are as regards our sexuality? I knew you could. This transit is brief but can certainly upend your own status quo regarding sexuality, which may lead you into unusual encounters with possible partners or with society at large (“...that is indecent and immoral, and you need to stop that now!”). You get my drift. Judgment always crops up when Uranus is in town and is wearing a bull costume. You may also have unusual and possibly revelatory experiences with your own sexual nature. Uranus encourages exploration and trying new things, so this weekend could be interesting! If you in fact have any aspects to anything at 16 degrees of Taurus, Scorpio, Aquarius or Leo, you may feel this “hit home”. The potential stinger in this conjunction could be a further eroding of the value of Bitcoin, fiat currencies (paper money), and digital money (the M3 money supply). The almost hyperinflation happening is definitely tied to Uranus in Taurus, as is the deflation of cryptocurrency values.
The next upcoming astrological markers that will dovetail into the main points I’ve been sharing here is the Full Moon in Sagittarius on the 14th squared to Neptune, followed by Neptune in Pisces being squared (challenged) by the Sun in Gemini on the 15th. Hermes, or Mercury, is a data hog and likes to collect information. Sometimes this causes mental indigestion. This Full Moon is lit up by the Neptune point...everything at 23 to 25 degrees of mutable signs. Like anything can happen but it may go unnoticed, or more delusion/confusion may arise, especially in the "news" or official pronouncements from the powers that rule. In other words, words and messages that deceive.
Another thing about this is the the Sun-Moon being square to the planet and sign that rules the waters (oceans, oil, amongst other things) and the everything everywhere. It will come as no surprise if we feel like we’re having more of an out-of-body experience while dealing with data overload, all at the same time. You might find yourself waking up from a dream and going right into a daydream. The veils will be thin, very thin, and all manner of tricksterish energy and entities will be around. Ground and earth yourself, that’s the remedy. Take your shoes off and wiggle toes in grass, or better yet, dirt or sand. And watch how much you engage with others in electronic mediums! Trolls and bad actors love this sort of dissociative energy.
The other aspect will that help is Mars and Chiron meet at exact midpoint of Aries on June 15th as well. Aries is the embodiment of “I Am”. The warrior and the Centaur meet, and this bodes well for those who recognize the divine value of individuation. You see, the film “Everything, Everywhere, All the Time” fragments the concept of a “self” and does so in a humorous way. Living in the digital soup that we all inhabit these days; it is becoming increasingly challenging to even feel who we are beyond the surface. Our inner life is more and more fragile and distant, hard to get a grip on, living in such an artificial electronic construct.
We can easily delude ourselves whilst in this environment, so it is super useful that Mars and Chiron team up now. It revs up the status of the individual, and the value of our inner self/being to a powerful degree. It could make us not only walk around saying “I Am” but acting more authentic. Caution: people might not like that and get riled and annoyed with you, or worse. But believe me, it is much better to be in trouble with others instead of being in trouble with yourself.
That’s my blog for this time, and I am still working on that massive piece on money, finance abundance and spirituality. Hopefully have that finished for later next week.
Have a great weekend and may your journey be filled with blessings.

On the next episode of "Revealing the Mysteries" which
airs LIVE this coming Sunday, June 12th 2022
This is kind of a Part Two to last week's episode, which you can listen to here.
The complete version with music will be in the Revealing the Mysteries Radio Archives later on today, June 10th, 2022
Synopsis: In the early part of the last decade a mysteriously unidentified individual by the name of Satoshi Nakamoto unveiled the world’s first digital coin – Bitcoin. In the intervening years words like “blockchain” and “cryptocurrency” spawned claims that this revolution in currency would free millions of people from the current financial systems. Are the claims of the crypto enthusiasts all that they’re cracked up to be? Well, not really. Cryptocurrencies and the coming central bank digital currencies are just one part of what I call the Money Game, which is an elaborate con game that’s been going since the Middle Ages! Whether it is paper or digital money, the definition, understanding and very nature of money is no longer what it once was. These days everyone simply accepts that money is a necessary feature of life on this planet. But what if it could be otherwise? What would our world look like without money? Does the size of your bank balance mean you’ve arrived spiritually? How do spiritual traditions view money? And finally, is money tied up with power and sex?

The Eyes of Truth
State of the Planet Update – March 26th, 2021
“The Eyes of Truth”
by Isaac George
Astro Event Forecast: Full Moon in Libra – Sunday, March 28th at 6:48pm UT, 7:48pm BST and 12:48pm EDT
As Astro-Events go, this and the following New Moon in Aries on April 12th are like lasers focused on a target. In the first one, happening this Sunday, the Moon in Libra is like an archer, drawing a bow to shoot an arrow directly into a trio of objects in Aries: The Sun, Venus, and Chiron (see chart). This is known as a “kite”, but when viewed horizontally, it looks like an archer taking aim. The kite is not exact, but it is close enough for our purposes here. What it represents in our experience and consciousness is a significant departure from the stratification, atomization and forced immobility of the past 12 months.
The Full Moon shines a big bright light on the Tres Amigos in Aries. It is reflecting the Sun’s light though, which tells me that the Aries energy predominates. Mars, the depositor of Aries, is also involved and conjunct the Nodal Axis, or Nodes of Fate at 14 degrees of Gemini. Which way will things go? This or that, up or down, in or out, truth or fiction? The North Node conjunct Mars not only says “what is happening here…right NOW!”, but is also asking, the is the new truth of this moment? Do we continue hunkering down, fearful, furtive, anxious? Or is the warrior that Mars and Aries are going to see with the eyes of truth what has been happening, and then ACT?
Chiron says, “this could be a real healing opportunity in which I/we can remember to trust our own instincts (in-tuition) and act from that place. Not to validate my identity, but to render meaningful my presence as a spiritual being in this physical space!”
Venus in Aries says, “I will no longer be afraid of love, or to express love, or show love, or to be bold as love. Passion is my name, spontaneity is my game, and I will be sovereign and not be controlled by any self-appointed authority or master!”
Sun in Aries says, “I will shine the light on the Truth, and all who have the eyes to see it, will respond. I shine for all, I give to all, and my Love is for all Life. I have no favourites. But I will not shine for those who hide their faces from me, or deny me, or trust their egos over their souls. They will be, by their choice, remain in darkness for a while yet.”
Minor planet Eris is in the sign of Aries, and will play a significant role in the New Moon in Aries chart on April 12th, 2021. I will cover that before it happens though.
This is a portal, and opening, an opportunity. Time to reboot, look again, question, reflect, and prepare to act over the next few weeks and months. The breakups and breakdowns will accelerate us out of the seeming prison planet of our old structures, beginning with this lunation. With the Moon in Libra, it is helpful to remember the concept of “both/and”, rather than “either/or” or bad/good, black/white. Holding the balance is essential. What will not be helpful is playing it safe for the sake of personal peace at all costs. That would be and could be very costly.
I grew up listening to the messages of my mother, a sensitive survivor of the class distinctions of the first half of the 20th Century. Here programming sounded like this: “Go along with things to get along”, or “don’t rock the boat”. With someone like me, that was like waving a red flag in front of a bull. My North Node in Aries would not stand for it!
For the past two months, the pre-eminent power has been Saturn in Aquarius. It has been the energetic driver behind us, pushing, pushing, pushing everyone to conform around an enforced idea or conceptualization of what “us” should be (“we’re all in this together”) and the medium of that enforcement is electronic and wireless technology. Working and living online has become ‘the’ way to get along and go along. It is all for your own protection and all that. Now you do not have to be around any potential walking biohazards.
If you feel that you seem to be busier than ever, and enjoying life less, you will resonate with what I have just said. So many have mentioned to me that there is a sense of no space to breathe or relax, or if they get that, it is all too short before the next demand lands on their desk…or unbidden from the monkey mind. This is what cortisol poisoning feels like, and it is unsustainable.
Fraud and weapons of mass distraction are everywhere. Some of us need to just switch off the mainstream media, just to create some space. Very understandable. It is also essential to not get caught up in divisive dialogues with total strangers. From all sides I hear about the hostility arising between those who opt for the injections and support draconian lockdowns, and those who do not feel it is for them. Often now, the split in one’s own circle of friends or family, and mirrors what Jesus allegedly said over 2000 years ago: “They will be divided, father against son and son against father, mother against daughter and daughter against mother, mother-in-law against daughter-in-law and daughter-in-law against mother-in-law." - Luke 12:53.
I cite this purely as an example only. A crime is in progress against humanity and humanness, a crime of enforced separation.
We are being confronted now with where we have been bargaining for safety and certainty. Where we have unconsciously or consciously, for the sake of our sense of survival, to go along with things, just so we can muddle through. That time is coming to an end now. We are being prodded and poked into something much greater, and it will take every ounce of perseverance and stamina to see it through.
The Moon in Libra represents “what will WE do?” The Sun, Venus and Chiron represents “Trust yourself for the answers…they come from the One Source within. You have everything you need inside, so why would you settle for less than excellence in all things?”
The Eyes of Truth are upon us. How then shall we respond? With love, positivity, devotion, will, and courage. I hope. United we stand, divided we fall.
Blessings on your journey,

[Venus Retrograde is officially over as of today...a perfect lead-in for this post.]
The Winter Solstice is very close now, only 3 days away, and a Full Moon in Cancer less than 24 hours after it. Talk about synchronicities! There is a paradox with this timing. The energies building to a Full Moon are about activation and making visible something previously not visible. It’s an epiphany of sorts. The Winter’s Solstice is almost the polar opposite. A call to get into a quiet place, meditate and take stock about the year past, and give thanks. Then after that it’s time to party, and break into celebration of the return of the light! With the Moon at zero degrees of Cancer, opposite the Sun, it will be a very emotionally charged time as well. Since Chiron in late Pisces will be squaring the axis of the Full Moon, there may be a feeling of needing to connecting with “home”, with the Source itself.
The strategy I suggest here is entering the Silence. There is already so much noise internally and externally during the seasonal rushing around, that we seldom are aware of how much background stress this is causing to our minds and bodies. The intensity levels are rising in different parts of the world, and if we aren’t careful, we can become sufficiently distracted that we can lose sight of what is essential. Connection is essential. Feeling connected, cared for, recognized. The need we have to be seen and understood is so strong, and in such short supply it seems. Taking the time to deliberately connect within yourself via the instrument of Nature is a primary step into the Silence.
Your heartbeat is aligned with the rhythms of the planetary magnetic fields and Her innate intelligence. Your breath is the breath of Consciousness itself. Your blood courses through your veins and your neurons fire without you doing a single deliberate thing. How can we be so susceptible to fear or anxiety? Because we’ve forgotten who we are, and what birthed us, and how much our life is connected and enfolded in a much vaster Life. The Life we call Spirit, Goddess, or All That Is.
The access point is your breath, your heartbeat, and Gaia. She is the gateway to the larger Cosmos. Your identity is an extension created by your soul to function in the world of the senses, but you are part of something much bigger, and infinitely benign and eternal. Again, I suggest to enter the Silence…of your inner sanctuary and ask to be shown the great Mysteries of who you are, who we are, where we come from, and what the true story of Gaia is. Deliberately tuning out the artificial world, at the time of this Solstice, for the purposes of coming into a deeper alignment and understanding, will actually bestow life-sustaining light and health to you, your body, and your perceptual matrix.
How you choose to do this is up to you. You create the space, invent the ritual, and enter the sacred chamber…so to speak. Envision yourself in a haze of golden light that is like a soft nougat. Free your mind of any of the old religious, metaphysical or spiritual forms you have learned about or adopted. Be a fresh vessel for wisdom to enter, and just begin with simple thanks for the experience of life. From there, you make it up, you co-create with the Goddess.
In the wake of the Full Moon, there may be a sensation of releasing and relief, of surrendering into the embrace of Love. Tears of joy and sorrow may flow, and it will probably be very noticeable on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day. As the moon cycle weakens towards New Year’s Eve, the deepening will continue, and the desire of extended periods of rest and sleep may become difficult to resist. Don’t resist. You will need all the rest you can get in preparation for the early part of 2019.
Tune in this weekend for the final installment of this series, when I preview the end of the year, and what to possibly expect in the first few months of the new year.
In the meantime…Blessings on you journey,

Above the Sky
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.

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