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,

Note: Lots of hyperlinks in this blog. I encourage you, the Reader, to stick it out to the end before you explore the external links and the evidence they provide. Thank you, I.
The upcoming New Moon on Sunday/Monday, April 11th/12th (depending on what time zone you are in), and the Full Moon of April 26th-27th will be the harbingers for the beginning of 2021's eclipse season which kicks off on May 26th. These 3 lunations will be reflecting and instigating the next steps in the unfolding drama within the dream spell of human interactions. It will also herald an almost year-long process leading up to the Jupiter-Neptune conjunction in Pisces in mid-February 2022, just as Pluto arrives to station at the same degree as he was at when America was born on July 4th, 1776. The Pluto Return for the USA announces that this is the end of empire(s). China be warned!
Even though the last 15 months has tested everyone and everything to the extreme, we will now be entering another phase of that cycle, which began with the Saturn-Pluto conjunction in Capricorn on January 12th, 2020, and then followed by the ingress of Saturn into Aquarius last December 21st, 2020. We are in for more change and disruption, but also with some distinct glimmers of light and radiance added in. This New Moon is the real beginning of the astrological "new year", as we will have the Sun, Moon, Venus, Ceres, Mercury, and Chiron all in the sign of the Warrior/Ram. Very potent stuff! Not to be overlooked in this recipe is the addition of the minor planet Eris at 24 Degrees of Aries. Her other name is Discord/Truth. My fellow astrologer Eric Francis has also dubbed her the ‘Sigil of the Digital Age’.
This stellium in Cardinal Fire is also squared (tension) by Pluto in Capricorn. Mars, the ruler of this New Moon, has finally crossed over the North Node in Gemini, and is the first planet coasting out in the clear of everything that has been packed together on one side of the sky. A real traffic jam…which is why everything felt so stagnant these last 3 months. We are now stimulated to not only initiate and act on our deepest impulses, to say “yes” to Life and to new opportunities, but to also use the power of “no” to counter anyone or anything that attempts to violate our boundaries or exert continued or new authority over us. Keep that in mind during the weeks following this weekend it will play out in the collective in surprising and sometimes distressing ways.
Essentially, the pulse I am picking up everywhere is a sense of exhaustion with the control and top-down way in which everything is being “managed”. Nothing like a global health emergency to drive people to extremes of behaviour. I have directly experienced and had folks report to me that long-standing friends and some family members have become strangers. This is a direct manifestation of Saturn in Aquarius. The crowd says “yes”, and a handful say “no”. The pressure to conform, to do what is right according to the authority (Saturn) is building up, all done with digital mediums like track and trace, proposed medical passports, and surveillance.
With the arising of the Aries season the power of “no”, done in the “now”, by each “one” who hears the call of their soul will challenge this pattern of authoritarian control. The mask is slipping, as it were. Chiron in Aries is the energy of the Warrior as Healer, and unlikely Hero. During the next 10-11 months, Chiron will represent a guiding light for the wise way through much of what will (probably) unfold. I may sound like I am hedging my bets there. It is mainly due to the presence of Uranus in Taurus. His archetype is prominent in that first total Lunar Eclipse on May 26th, 2021, but that is a discussion for another time.
Since duality itself is a phenomenon of the One in materiality, it should be obvious that when one says “no” to something or someone, the flip side is also present. We are saying “yes” to something else.
In this situation, I feel it is looks and feels like a big “yes” for individual sovereignty and respect and at the same time a recognition that none of us, of and by ourselves, can do everything. This is the cornerstone that many have lost touch with - the balance between Self and Other, between the physical and the ethereal, between acceptance and rejection. Another way of thinking about it is embodied awareness that recognizes its own survival is already a foregone conclusion. Death is a phantom, and Uranus in Taurus warms us up to the embrace of organic symbiotic interactions with all creatures great and small, while at the same time placing one’s own survival instinct into unfamiliar place…one of trusting Life and losing the attachment to ego preservation.
In the image with this article, one taken from J.R.R. Tolkien’s Lord of the Rings Trilogy, the figure of Gandalf the Grey, a seemingly small-time wizard of little stature, is facing off against a dark adversary of immense proportions. An evil of the ancient world, a Balrog of Morgoth. Does he cower or falter, even when his demise seems certain? No. His fellowship with the Hobbits, and men, and a single elf are at stake. So is their mission. He stands his ground, and courageously speaks to the shadow and flame, “you…shall…not…pass!” He says “no” with everything he has within him. I personally aspire to possess such courage, and such calmness, as Tolkien’s unlikely hero, Gandalf the Grey, does.
Whoever you are, and wherever you are, I hope you may be inspired to discover and set loose your biggest “no’s” and “yes’s!” We will have plenty of opportunities to explore, experiment and experience this core energy of the divine within each of us. Fearlessness is not the absence of fear. It is a fear sublimated and harnessed by Love and harnessed to for a purpose that is in the truth of your Being.
We are going to need to do more than just talk truth to power. We will have to ask ourselves to act like the truth matters. One truth is this – while everyone is focused near field of fear about viruses and vaccines, no one is looking behind the veil and beyond to the larger picture. For the first time in our history, the threshold of carbon dioxide levels has surpassed 420ppm. The last time our Earth has been this warm was 3 million years ago, during the Pliocene Epoch.
The proposals for vaccination documents or passports conceals a deeper and more disturbing feature that arises from the increasing reliance and implementation of A.I. across the globe for surveillance and social manipulation. Please take 15 minutes to watch this intriguing video by Russell Brand to learn more. I will be covering more of this in depth during my radio show on April 18th, so please subscribe here to receive updates.
Usually during times of the greatest challenge and darkness, we rediscover the Light within, and regain the wisdom and sense to course-correct. This may be the most important time on this planet since the days of Atlantis. The choices around what is most helpful and humane and what is not, are becoming clearer by the day. Not everyone will see or hear what you may have to say, so do yourself a favour. Do not attempt to open a closed system. Respect the boundaries of others, as you would want others to respect your boundaries. However, you have an inherent right to the following: to choose how you manage your life, your health, your relationships, and especially your consciousness and your individual relationship to whatever your spiritual path and concepts of the Divine might be.
Unconditional Love is allowing. And that also includes allowing yourself free expression to say your biggest “yes’s”, and your biggest “no’s”.

On the Air, with Isaac – “Revealing the Mysteries” Radio Show – Sunday, April 11th, 2021
Live air times are 6:30pm BST, 1:30pm EDT, and 10:30am PDT.
This week’s show is my 10th episode and is titled:
“Infinite Wave Astrology Report: April 2021”
Synopsis: Astrology is like a road map. It can show you where you are now and what the potential obstacles also what places of interest and opportunities lie ahead. In this episode I will focus on how the energies of the sky, stars and planets are reflecting our current human experience, starting with the extremely potent New Moon in Aries happening April 12th, 2021. One thing is for sure; the elitist agendas of world system will be under assault for the rest of this year.
Humanity is splitting into two camps: one favouring living in resonance with Natural impulses and laws, and the other holding on in fear, control, survival, and dominance. Digital domination is the long game now, as Big Tech tried to implement an artificial and counterfeit Utopia. The trip down the rabbit hole is about to accelerate. Take your Red Pill, please fasten your seat belts and make sure your tray table is in the upright and locked position. Enjoy the show!

I've just finished reading a book entitled "You Are Not a Gadget" by Jaron Lanier, and I highly recommend it. Yes, a real book. Not an e-book, or a Kindle book, or a downloadable .PDF book. A physical book made with physical paper, from physical trees (or recycled physical cardboard) and physical ink. Quaint, huh? It's not exactly an enjoyable read, but it may be an important read. It's about creativity, the Internet, social networking, and the question of personhood. Are we in charge of our technology, or is our technology now shaping us in ways we never imagined. And, is it healthy? Do those who are at the cutting edge of VR (virtual reality) and AI (artificial intelligence) sufficiently aware to be entrusted with the future of mankind? These are the sort of big questions the book poses, and, it was written by a Silicon Valley insider that has been at the forefront of the developing technological revolution known as the World Wide Web, and who is paradoxically one of its harshest critics.
Here are a couple of quotes to ponder on: "If you want to know what's really going on in a society or ideology, follow the money. If money is flowing to advertising instead of musicians, journalists and artists, then society is more concerned with manipulation than truth or beauty. If content is worthless, then people will start to become empty-headed and contentless", and "Humans are free. We can commit suicide for the benefit of a Singularity (Web 2.0). We can engineer our genes to better support an imaginary hive mind. We can make culture and journalism into second-rate activities and spend centuries remixing the detritus of the 1960's and other eras before individual creativity went out of fashion. Or we can believe in ourselves. By chance, it might turn out we are real", and finally; "The deep meaning of personhood is being reduced to an illusion of bits."
My recent personal experiences with social networking and my forays into designing websites have brought me to a spiritual and intellectual impasse. When I am spending time in nature, or conversing with someone else while in their physical presence, compared with the experience of the immediacy of online sound-bites or artificial landscapes of Facebook, I am becoming more and more aware of a feeling of discontentedness with the noosphere and the hive mind, the proposed Singularity of digital self-images. I feel less like a person than I used to!
Years ago in the heyday of my channeling work, Archangel Ariel described the Internet as the 'outernet', an artificial construct of the human neural net and the collective unconscious. A little while later, I met a well-known astrologer and spiritual teacher who had published many 'new age' books, and was dumbfounded to discover that she refused to engage with the World Wide Web. She had no email address, and relied on others to publish and update her website. You want to contact her? Send a piece of mail via the post! Her explanation was that the Web was completely 4th Dimensional, or of the Astral realm, and as such was polluted with distortions, dramas, and manipulative influences. In short, to dive into the hive mind without taking into account the risks of exposure, one could become enamoured with the sense of 'we-ness' and lose track of the real WWW, the higher-order spiritual reality of which we are all a part. Obviously, it is paradoxical that I am presenting this perspective (and my own!) via an instrument of the Internet - the ubiquitous e-zine newsletter. [Personally speaking, I'd enjoy this interaction more if we could all be sitting together enjoying a drink and chatting.]
It is interesting to look at the language of Cyberspace for the clues. We're so adept at naming things for what they are, then ignoring the consequences. In the past, the word 'web' was applied to the technology of spiders, or to denote a trap of some kind. Now we assume it describes a social and spiritual mechanism that frees humanity from many perceived constraints and limits. Perhaps the promise of the Singularity is a betrayal, and we would do well to heed the warnings of someone like Jaron Lanier. Trust your instincts, develop your discernment and delve into your Self. I suppose what I'm favouring here is organic realism versus digital copies of realism. Even though we have become all too familiar with Matrix-like themes about the nature of 'organic' models in the multiverses and our infantile understandings about the nature of Consciousness, we would do well to appreciate a natural flesh and blood humanity versus a cloned cyber-copy. I have no love of being inserted into any virtual reality, where my sense of self is embedded in an avatar. I say this not because I am a hater of technology, but because I love, and a chip of silicon circuitry does not.
I encourage you to consider that the promise of the web could easily be turned into a tyranny of sorts. Reducing ourselves to some common digital denominator for the sake of group consciousness/consensus can become such a tyranny. Individuation of Consciousness is the anti-thesis to what the progenitors of Singularity envision, and I celebrate that our spiritual potential is worth elevating above hive mindedness. An current example would be the real people occupying Wall Street, versus Tweeting about it on the Net. The street and the coffee shop will be where the r-evolution is played out, not in cyberspace. Welcome to the Real.
