We wanted to wish all of you a happy new year! This year is a year of “Getting In Shape”. Since we have been eating better, we both lost 100 pounds a piece and now, well, our fat cells have turned into somewhat saggy skin cells. So, we are finally ready to get in shape, we tried yoga, but it has been difficult to do with Greg as well as with my aches and pains I still get just from not being in shape.
So here we are in 2014 getting ready to tune our bodies up to the max, it is no different than cleaning out your drain pipes in your home so that they are in tip top shape. Our drain pipes need clearing along with the skin from those drain pipes. Okay, who is kidding who? We are revamping our drain pipes to brand new ones!! New skins and all!
I looked and found some really comprehensive chair yoga exercises that were simple to do, so we are getting on that band wagon next week because well, this week we are hurting from the cold weather and it seems if I move one way or another, I just hurt myself.
We are also going to be cooking more from scratch. We have already baked our first loaf of bread, albeit it was wheat and quite heavy and not as good as I had anticipated, we are continuing to try. We have also made cookies from scratch, pancakes and waffles from scratch. Do we really need to buy pancake and waffle mix? We have all of the ingredients in our cupboards. Just look!
Pancake & Waffle Mix:
1 cup all-purpose flour, (spooned and leveled)
2 tablespoons sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup milk
2 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
1 large egg
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
Easy right? I thought so, plus you have all of those ingredients in your cupboards and refrigerator. Who would have thought? Are you going to buy pancake mix again?
You want to bake your own bread. It’s simple (However it does take 3 1/2 to 5 hours total time)!
2 cups water (Between 100°F and 110°F to activate yeast)
There are a lot of steps, but it is well worth it when you make bread once a week for the family and you know what you are eating, most importantly!
So these are the types of things we are doing this year and we are extremely excited to be saving money on food because we are doing this. It’s amazing to see the creativity come out of you after you just made everything from scratch too, so you can sit back and be proud that you aren’t contributing to buying GMO ingredients. Just do yourself a favor and buy cane sugar and sea salt as well as organic or non-GMO cornmeal. I also bought the yeast at a specialty nut shoppe so it is not Fleischmann’s, which has Ascorbic Acid in it, which is a lab synthesized version of Vitamin C, it also wipes out good bacteria or probiotics in the gut. Use Active Dry Yeast and make sure it has only yeast in it.
Okay so now you know how to make bread, pancakes and waffles from scratch. It’s not that hard and our grandmothers use to do it! They probably even made their own butter, which is also easy and something else we need to try as well as making our own ketchup, mayonnaise and mustard among other condiments we could save money on by making ourselves.
This is what we strive for, self sufficiency. A way to make things easier on us as a society and a way to make life a little less stressful with more money in your pocket and not someone else’s.
Life is hard to begin with, why should we stress about needing things when we can make them at home with all of the things you currently have?
And if you don’t know what you can make with what you have, add your ingredients from your cupboard one at a time to this website and find out what you can create! http://www.supercook.com/ You will be surprised!
Happy New Year and I hope that 2014 brings all of you much happiness, love, and success in your endeavors.
We would love to know what changes you are going to make for the New Year!
Hi everyone, so sorry we have been away for so long and have not posted any of Zooey’s Astrological reports. We have been busy, but now that we have some time and things are a little less hectic, we are able to wish all of you a very very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year and are hoping to get back into the swing of things on this website!
Anyway, here is our Holiday letter so you can see what we have been doing. It’s been quite a ride! I have also put together some recipes for our GMO Free PA group so that they can pass these out to anyone they come across. It’s good stuff too! You will be full just looking at it!

I wanted to start off this month with that simple question because it has so many meanings. Like, are we joking with someone or being straight? Or, are we committed to a project or not? Telling the truth or speaking nonsense? Feeling braced or at peace?
And it’s that last one I especially wanted to focus on because there is so much stress going around, it’s almost like an infectious disease. Every second person I know seems to be sick in bed with it.
The thing is, there’s a galactic wave of Love and Transformation flooding the planet, too. Even though a certain group of people are desperate to keep that knowledge from us, we can ignore their pleas to keep going along as their slaves. We can throw off the shackles, relax, take a deep breath, and choose a different path.
I always find that the trick to life’s trials and tribulations is not in finding an answer to a series of questions—how do I pay the bills, buy groceries, and still buy my sweetie a nice gift; where do I find the resources to get my car fixed, or do I swallow my pride and ask mom for a few bucks again, or do I just leave the situation alone for now and hope I get a raise at the end of the month, or maybe that guy I just met knows something about cars—but in choosing from a range of answers to one problem. My roommate is carrying the world on her shoulders, and here are fifteen ways to help lighten the load.
All the solutions may not work, but at least we have some movement. If we only look at the minutiae of each and every problem, we end up talking ourselves into a tizzy. Or a self-analytical paralysis, and that’s feels even worse.
We are between worlds here. The rat-race, Illuminati one of lords and peasants, and gods and clods; and the new Age of Aquarius one where we all matter, and each of us are honored for our own unique contribution to the whole.
Though it’s hard for us to be completely in one or the other at the moment, it doesn’t mean we can’t nudge things in the direction we wish to go. All it takes is a bit of effort to maintain our course, delight in the journey, and we’re there.
The Sun is moving into Sagittarius, a sign that is renowned for it’s sense of playfulness; and if there’s one thing I’ve learned in my time on planet Earth, it’s that hypertension falls apart when faced with laughter. Life really is just a game. Once we know that, there’s no reason to get all worked up over something that turns out in the end. We can go back, take our place in the grand scheme of things, have a good laugh—I mean, really let it rip!—and wait our turn to roll the dice.
It’s up to us how we play the game. We can sit around watching fear-based, YouTube videos designed to evoke panic and dismay, or we can take part in making this world a better place. Stress, or harmony? It’s our choice.
And you’d better decide now because this is a time-limited offer! If you don’t work it out by the end of the year, you’ll miss the boat for another 24,000 years!! Didn’t you know there’s a comet streaking towards Earth? You have to order those emergency supplies now!!! You don’t want to be caught with your pants down, do you? You could end up in a FEMA camp if you’re not prepared for the worst!!!! So, pack up the wife, the kids, some salt tablets, dried rations, a CB radio, and head for the hills because the world is ending tomorrow and WE’RE ALL GONNA DIE!!!!!
… or not.
So, I’ll ask the question again: are you serious?
I would very much like everyone to take a break from the Illuminati’s stressed-out conditioning this month. Stop holding up their pyramid and get back outside into Nature. Chill out for awhile and get all that weight off our shoulders. Breathe the free air. Ahhhhh… See? The world didn’t come crashing down. The only thing that fell over was a bullshit, institutionalized tyranny.
All we have to do now is watch where we step, and we’ll be fine.
~ One Love ~
Well! Is everyone still kickin’ after a year of tears? That was quite an emotional ride, huh?
Before I get into to it, I’d like us to think back to this Spring’s water stellium and where we were then. The reason is that it should be much clearer that people are starting to find common ground. We still have a long way to go, but the progress towards Unity Conscious is truly remarkable.
The people of the world came together and stopped the Syrian war, for one. Hydrogen cars are rolling off the assembly line in Korea despite Big Oil choking the life out of free energy technologies. Also, the truth has been set free about the Bosnian pyramid which means we’re beginning to uncover our true history. And if we can do that, what else can we do?
Many people are now opening their eyes to see the slimy designs of the New World Order all over everything. Our neighbors have begun to wake up to it, too—still not everyone, but more and more every day. They may not know what to say, who to turn to, or even bring it up with friends and coworkers, but that blank stare is not them spending too much time in front of the TV, but rather them working things out.
The result of all this is that the Illuminati is failing in their constant attempts to keep us all separate. No matter what they throw at us, we’re starting to see ourselves in each other’s eyes again. And that, folks, is the beginning of One World and One Love.
The reason this has all come to a head is because of the ongoing Uranus – Pluto square dance. Though we are over the worst part of it for the year, it will continue on into 2015. When the music’s over, the world will be an entirely different place.
The last time Pluto and Uranus were in a square was back in the mid-sixties, and I don’t think anyone doubts what happened as a result. Even though this planetary square is causing such a dramatic, social upheaval today, just like back then, it’s doing it to bring our hearts and minds together. It’s not only unifying a generation, but right across entire generations.
For those who may not have been paying attention this time around, the square between these two planets began in 2012. It was just after the Sun was 0 degrees Aquarius on the Eastern horizon on March 21st signaling the beginning of the new Age of Aquarius.
Interesting timing, indeed.
It’s almost as if the Waterbearer began the Aquarian Age by deciding that the first thing to go was the illusion of separation, the never-ending spiritual doubt and collective anxiety from the Age of Pisces. And what a relief it’s been!
Just think about our excitement back in 2012 for a moment—all the talk about Ascension, or that UFOs would land on the White House lawn on December 21st, or even the Cabal being defeated any day, and then…nothing. And yet everyone felt like things were happening all around us. We couldn’t see the changes, it was impossible for anyone to define them, but, for goodness sake, we knew something was going on alright.
Well, it turns out something was happening—we were transforming on a soul level and Gaia was changing along with us. That’s not really a surprise to me as Pluto is all about our evolving Soul. In fact, as my regular readers know, I call Him the Master Gardener as he regular prunes our inner, spiritual hedges. And not just us individually, but everyone at the same time. Anything that gets in the way of our soul growth is uprooted and removed.
Now, if we add the internal revolution that has been going on since Uranus moved into Aries into the mix, we may begin to see where all the tension lies—and see that it’s not that difficult at all. We had to transform on a soul level before we could even begin to appreciate the new Aquarian vibes. Uranus simply showed us how badly we’ve been treated by the Powers-That-Were, and how we don’t need to stand for their neo-feudal shite anymore.
If we can see that, then perhaps we’ll see that a lot of the current spiritual and social challenges aren’t as rough as we thought. It’s about setting the New Age on a solid foundation and living without soul constraints, racial divisions, gender bias, and perpetual class warfare.
It’s about being free.
~ The Trouble with Triangles ~
We have an interesting planetary aspect coming up in the first couple weeks of December. Saturn in Scorpio will trine a retrograde Jupiter in Cancer from the 8th until the 17th. Though this is a harmonious aspect, it will point out anything that no longer fits in with our Heart while highlighting all that is good for it. Perfect for the holidays.
How we experience this trine will depend on whether we’re embracing the new Age of Aquarius or still holding onto to the Age of Pisces. If we’ve been getting funky with all the new Aquarian energy, we’ll find an abundance of joy and love this winter; if we’re still questioning what our life is all about, who we are to each other and our place in the universe, we may end up spending a lot of time alone.
However, if we do find ourselves deep in wintry contemplation, try and keep one thing in mind: we are all God. There is no separation between any of us. That’s just an illusion.
This is why the New World Order is currently imploding. They tried to substitute the Age of Aquarius with a false age of their own making, one that places an arbitrary, monetary value on some things but not others. Thus we end up with expendable people like peasants and soldiers, and hoarding and an ever-increasing thing-fetishism.
That’s something no planet would ever go along with, and Gaia is no exception. Everything has some merit—even the Shadow is necessary or we’d never see the Light. Mother Earth will simply no longer tolerate these black magicians who like to adorn themselves with our skulls and bones.
The New Age is about Unity, seeing the connection we all share with the rest of the Universe, the link from past to present to future, the Divine Feminine and Masculine united, and holding hands with our neighbors—not standing on the corpses of the dead. It’s includes all of us and can be seen in the drummer’s circles that spring up wherever people of good conscious come together.
Yet, back in the 80′s under King George I (Reagan was just a figurehead), the Cabal tried to put their Triangle on it instead. They tried to give us this idea that everything flows from the top down to the serfs at the bottom. The even have a name for it: the trickle down theory.
The problem with a trickle is that it doesn’t keep the bridges and roads repaired, or first responders and teachers on the job. It doesn’t allow us leisure time to explore our innate creativity and develop our psychic skills. It dams the natural flow of energy between one person and another. Though it’s possible to hold people back, it’s not possible to do that forever, and the world has had just about enough of the Illuminati’s false light.
This powerful Jupiter–Saturn trine will highlight everything that will help our Hearts move forward again. If we listen carefully during the lead up to the holidays, we’ll be able to catch the wave of Unity and Love, too.
~ Full Moon Blast Off ~
All systems go! Is everyone ready for an incredible lunar month? On December 17th, the Moon goes full at 4:28 am EST in the airy sign of Gemini. But, not only that, Uranus goes direct on the same day.
When Uranus gets involved with any planet, the results are always spectacular by adding a transformational, revolutionary component to whatever it’s touching. So, let’s have a look at what the Moon in Gemini means:
This aspect describes our inner thoughts and feelings, the things we’ve been wanting to share with others but may be keeping on the back burner. A Geminian Moon nurtures breakthroughs in life, the arts, and communication with others. Uranus will fire all that up and take it to a whole new level.
(There is a proviso here: be careful of letting our witty repartee say a little too much about hidden feelings. It may get us into trouble. Also, be wary of getting too gossipy as this lunar aspect can really foster sharing the foibles of being human. There’s a difference between exploring human weakness, and harping on it. Add in some holiday libations and we may end up saying things we regret later.)
Let’s stop and take a look at all this from the other perspective, too. Uranus is going direct on the same day as the Full Moon. This radical planet will get a huge boost from the Moon’s Geminian qualities. What could that mean?
Well, first off, all that fiery, world revolution stuff that has been taking a break for the last few months is about to get moving again. There will be an increase in social tension as the old guard desperately tries to hang onto power and its outdated ways of being. With all the good ideas from this Gemini Moon, I would think we’re going to see a lot more determination to get on with Gaia’s golden age.
I would also expect to see a lot of changes at home over the holidays. (Remember: Gemini is about our siblings and close relationships, too.) I might even say that some people will find it impossible not to air some old grievances. Acting on this impulse may—or may not—work out for all concerned. If we put our Heart first, though, we may be able to see that unloading old baggage on others just ain’t worth the trouble; and that sometimes it’s better to just get on with the living present.
I’m not sure which planet is powering up the other at this point, but I’m very excited. This Full Moon will really accelerate our thinking on positive change in the world, especially in how we all fit into it. Uranus will reveal novel ways to live in the Aquarian Age.
We may find it hard to sit still on this day, and with good reason: Uranus in Aries is itching to get back in the game; and a lofty Moon is nurturing our mental capacity to work out all the new, bold, social changes. It’s like a really good idea that’s looking for a place to happen.
With all that going on, how far away can a brave new world be? Uranus will continue to transform our lives, that’s a given, but especially when the Divine Feminine sneaks up from behind and grabs us by the boo boo.
Have fun, everyone! We’re in for one heckuva winter holiday!
~ A Man Walks Down The Street ~
This month I choose Paul Simon’s irreverent and wonderfully self-deprecating song, ‘You Can Call Me Al’. I hope it reminds everyone to lighten up a bit.
Though I feel it’s important to get down to brass tacks and work on planetary transformation, life’s just too short to stay focused on serious things all the time. And we certainly don’t need to run around banging our drum for everyone to hear—it’s the work that’s important, not our egos.
For example, I was born awake. As a result, I have spent my entire life trying to wake up others. I liken it to trying to get a massive, heavy door unstuck. I have pried, and struggled, and pried some more. Just when I have it about open, I turn around to wipe my brow and have a drink of water, when someone else comes along, opens it with no effort, and simply walks through.
Do I really need to jump on that person and tell them about all the work I put into getting the door open? Perhaps I could hang out by the door and hand out flyers to people passing through that details what an amazing job I did. Do I really need to take credit for something we’re all doing in our own way?
Life is full of irony. It’s up to us if we want to take that personally. Our journey is not about tallying up the results, anyway, it’s about having the opportunity to be a part of making the magick happen along the way—even if it means no one ever sees all the hard work that went into casting the spell.
So, in closing, I’d like to pass on a bit of humor. I hope it emphasizes the importance of getting goofy with it. We are not just some magician doing tricks on a cosmic stage; we are the magick, too.
We always were.
A man is walking down the street and notices a small boy trying to reach the doorbell of a house. Even when the boy jumps up, he can’t quite reach it.
After deciding to help, the man walks up on the porch, and pushes the doorbell for the boy. He looks down, smiling at the boy, and asks, “What now?”
“Come away, O human child: To the waters and the wild With a fairy, hand in hand, For the world’s more full of weeping Than you can understand.”
– William Butler Yeats
Many people stumble and fall when the Darkness comes, and yet the urge to reach out to someone who is suffering always remains. No matter how much pain we go through, like a mother cat pulling her kittens from a burning building, we will sacrifice ourselves for others. It’s called Universal Love, and it’s all around us.
Doing the right thing is one of the strongest desires in life. It’s why many of us came to this bedraggled planet on the edge of the galaxy in the first place: to assist Gaia in getting the lights back on. Sure it’s a challenge, but when times get tough, Spirit gets going.
It may feel like we’re trying to drain the ocean with a sieve, but the few drops we catch is an opportunity to help. Each act of kindness means that the world is a better place, that a forest is protected from devastation, that a local stray finds a free lunch, and that someone who is cutoff, scared, and lonely finds a friend.
Life’s an adventure and some things shouldn’t be missed. The chance to incarnate under a deep, blue sky on an incredibly diverse biosphere is one of them; to be of service to others is another. Besides, who can resist a quick, refreshing dip in the 3D gene pool?
We are a living presence of Light and Love, of The Grand Maker, of All That Is, and everything will work out as long as we hold true to each other. We came here to help and we will not go gently into that good night. Throughout any difficulty, keep in mind that not only can we make a difference, but we are the difference.
~ Mercury Dives into the Deep ~
It’s Samhain! Happy Witch’s New Year!
Normally I’d suggest we get out the balloons, poppers, and party streamers, but I just can’t seem to shake that “something wicked this way comes” feeling. Is it because Mercury is going retrograde on October 21st and the emotional dam is about to burst? Could be, but a lot of other stuff is happening, too.
I always laugh when the Mercury retrograde aspect comes up as so many people seem to run for the hills; few people take into account the sign this tiny planet is in when it happens. We need to understand that significance before panicking and heading to the safety of our EMF-proof bunkers. Also, Mercury reverses direction three, sometimes four, times a year. It’s hardly something to freak out over.
In this case, Mercury will be in the occult sign of Scorpio. It will cause our psychic floodgates to open. Scorpio is all about sex, death, relationships, and the hidden meanings of life. Though all hell can break loose when these things are put into spin, we can navigate these rough waters if we put out Heart first.
This month will be hard on us, especially for empaths, but we’ll be much healthier when it’s over. We simply can’t move on with our lives when we’re dragging around an anchor of pain; or worse, forgotten that we’re being weighted down and think that slogging around in the muck is normal. This Mercury retrograde will give us an opportunity to cut through those chains. In fact, the entire year has been a lesson in healing and letting go of old wounds.
The Sun enters Scorpio a couple of days after that and many things that have been hidden will become visible again. That includes misgivings and other assorted owies that we’ve been avoiding. The entire world is starting to sort out who and what has been holding us back; and even though some folks are ahead of the curve, it’s not a bad idea to review our feelings on things before moving on.
We’ve crossed over into the Age of Aquarius, and our journey has to have soul if it is to have any meaning now. This is why we’re having difficulty sticking with a career or putting any energy into former projects. Long-term relationships are having problems—or have ended altogether—and new ones are struggling to get started. It’s as if a hush has come over the entire planet that keeps us from doing anything but trying to make things better.
The New Age is about everyone; not just us as individuals. People who haven’t figured that out find themselves at an impasse. Again, this is where we can help others who are in a quandary with all the Aquarian energy.
Our troubled planet will come through all the turmoil if folks begin to grasp that it’s about the link we share, and that every person deserves a chance to thrive. We can move this realization along by freely lending a hand.
Do that, and the Universe will take care of the rest.
~ Who’s Afraid of the Big, Bad Wolf? ~
A few bad omens begin to reveal themselves as the veil thins and we draw near Samhain. As they say, fools rush in where wise men fear to tread, and that certainly applies here. Though, I would change that to “where a wise Witch fears to tread” if it were me. Maybe add in a spooky voice, too.
First off, a retrograde Mercury will line up with Saturn in Scorpio. It will lay down some harsh, emotional restrictions in our lives. This will most likely take the form of breakups now that we are seeing how out of sync some of our close relationships have become. If we head out for a Halloween party with a lover or a good friend, take extra care of each other, or we may end up coming back alone.
Next up, Mars not only trines Pluto but will oppose Chiron. This will have the effect of pointing out all that we no longer need in our lives. Though this can be a very good thing if we need some healing, it can be a real slap in the face if we aren’t ready for it. Again, be careful of saying the wrong thing to the right person over the Halloween celebrations.
The Sun gets in on the act here as it will be conjunct the North Node. It will illuminate any unbalanced, karmic patterns. The Sun trumps all planets, and it’s focus during the last week of October is on what we can let go. It’s tired of carrying around old baggage and will burn away anything it finds too heavy for our Spirit. Ignore that, and we may end up finding ourselves holding onto nothing.
Finally, the Uranus and Pluto square that’s been causing so much wide-eyed, spiritual shock for everyone throughout October will go exact on November 1st, the first day of pagan winter. This is the big one to watch out for this Fall.
Pluto shouldn’t be trifled with at the best of times, but especially when He’s having a cosmic shootout with Uranus the Revolutionary. It’s here that we will find a lot of unrest, and it’d be best to keep our heads down on this day unless anyone wants to get hit with a stray bullet. This square will continue throughout November, finally coming to an end as the Sun passes into Sagittarius.
My advice all during Samhain is to take advantage of the introspective planetary aspects, stay indoors, and appreciate how far we’ve come. Think back to last year at this time; think of all the emotional stuff that came up. The grief, the karmic pain, the memories of loss. Now think about how much freer we are since we faced the ghosts of the past. It’s our Higher Self’s way of showing us what needed to be healed so we’re ready for what’s next.
We’ve done a lot of soul work, and that deserves to be honored. We may not be able to take it to the bank, but, then again, the whole idea of banks is coming to an end, anyway. If we absolutely feel the need to get out and party with our fellow spooks and spirits this Halloween, try and keep it light—unless folks like the idea of skeletons falling out of the closet.
~ Solar Eclipse in Scorpio ~
We will experience an annular eclipse in the wee hours of the morning on November 3rd. A thin ring of light will appear around Mother Moon as if She doesn’t quite have the strength to completely shut out the light of Father Sun. Personal power struggles often ensue with this type of conjunction; and not just with each other, but in the form of an internal clash.
Our minds are not quite in balance and the Moon is reminding us of that. Or, rather, we haven’t been in balance up till now and still need a minor tweak before finding inner harmony. Now that all the new soul upgrades, internal testing, and diagnostics are complete, we’re being given one last chance to check for green lights across the board before blast off. After this, we finally get on with the New Age of Aquarius.
It was necessary for us to go through a lot of adversity in order to understand that we’re not to blame for everything that has gone wrong in the world. The Illuminati have tried—desperately so, lately—to persuade us that we need to fight and claw our way to the top of their pyramid, that “survival of the fittest” was natural.
We’ve been told since birth that if we didn’t make it by the time we’re thirty, we are losers and should get used to serving the needs of those that did. It’s a perverse conditioning for a hierarchical society where one either learns to love neo-feudal living, turn our back on our neighbors, and worship the money-masters, or be considered defective and get medicated.
It turns out that no one was meant to win the rat-race aside from a few satanic rats. Now that the world is waking up from such a painful, impossible dream, it will be easy to fix the real problem. All we need to do is start loving each other again without any need for a pat on the back. Or a cash register.
~ Jupiter Downshifts for a Few ~
The great, big marble floating around our outer solar system takes a break from expanding our Hearts this month. On November 7th, Jupiter will go retrograde until early spring. It signals the end of the Year of the Flood.
That is going to be a welcome relief for those if us who have been inundated with tears. But, before we let the bells ring out and the banners fly, we still need to get through the rest of the month of Scorpio. So, let’s mirror what’s happening in the Heavens by stopping for a cosmic moment and reflecting on our lives.
For one, we’ve learned to be in the moment. That’s a feat and a half as most people have been trained through the Rockefeller school system to be terrified of never having enough. It means we’ve begun to transcend the R-complex in our brains that the Illuminati have spent thousands of years exploiting.
More and more of us are turning our backs on the idea of being wealthy. People want to be comfortable, yes, but not rich; we want to feel safe, of course, but not at the expense of everyone else. In other words, we’ve started to see things from a plural perspective.
Also, we have learned the true meaning of spiritual humility. It turns out is has nothing to do with being afraid of an angry God who will punish us if we don’t do what we’re told—it’s about recognizing that we are a part of something so vast that it leaves us in awe. That’s a far cry from sidestepping lightning bolts and begging for forgiveness.
We’ve also come to understand what compassion is all about, as well. As we expand our personal view, the first thing we notice is that others are coping with the same things we’re going through, and that brings us closer together.
Now that Jupiter is retrograde, we can stop and have a look at these things. All winter long, actually, as Jupiter won’t go direct again until March 6th. That’s plenty of time to meditate on how big our Hearts have become, that we are finding a collective strength, and that this whole, crazy notion of Unity Conscious is becoming a reality.
~ And Now, On with the Show ~
Mercury goes direct on November 10th. It’s a sign that the mystical flood waters are beginning to recede and we can look for dry ground again. A few days later, Neptune goes direct, too.
When Neptune entered Pisces in early 2012, He stirred up psychic powers in everyone. This single aspect has been responsible for the incredible lift we’ve been feeling since the Age of Aquarius began. And, if there’s one thing I kept seeing throughout that summer, it was comments on blogs saying how much lighter folks felt and how in tune they were with the Universe. Though I would hesitate to hang the New Age on a single planet, Neptune moving into it’s home sign of Pisces was truly remarkable timing.
Well, back in June, the Dream Master took some time off from sprinkling our lives with all-purpose pixie dust so we could clean out the karmic pipes. Now that Neptune is starting to move forward, and our subconscious is all squeaky-clean, we can get back to ushering in a new era of Peace, Love, and Understanding. It’s time to come together with our loved ones again and get ready for a wonderful, fun-filled holiday season.
I know this year has been very hard, and many of us are now inside-out, upside-down, and facing the other way, but I promise next month—and next year—is going to be much easier.
~ Full Moon in Taurus ~
The Goddess has a special treat in store for us. If we look up to see the Full Moon this month, we’ll see Her passing through the earthy sign of Taurus. On November 17th at 10:16 am Eastern Time, Her Lunar Majesty will herald a return to sanity and better days to come.
It’s hard to tell what’s happening from inside of a transformation, but by this time next year we’ll be amazed at how much we’ve changed. Unfortunately, in order to get to this spiritual point in our lives, we had to go through a serious financial loss. It’s the nature of things: we have to let go of the ways things are to get to where we want to be. And I don’t know a single person who wants things to stay the same, especially in how the economy works.
As a result, we’ve been living without a monetary safety net for almost four years now; for some of us, much, much longer. Though it’s been frightening to live paycheck to paycheck, we’ve learned that we actually don’t need the trappings of modern society. We can find happiness in the simple things. Because of that, we have become more free than we could ever imagine while attached to our possessions.
This Full Moon will focus us on our homes, families, neighbors, and loved ones. I guess that’s no surprise with the holidays coming up, but what may be going unnoticed is that we simply aren’t as concerned about making ends meet anymore. Instead of juggling bills while trying to save hundreds of dollars for expensive Christmas gifts, we’ve started to find other ways of sharing our affection. For example, homemade gifts like crafts, poetry, and preserves.
This is close to where we were in the middle of last century when people not only knew the value of a penny, but understood that love can’t be bought at a shopping mall. Likewise, the Full Moon in Taurus will help us remember that true beauty does not come from a clearance sale, but from within.
~ I Reach Out from the Inside ~
This month, I choose Peter Gabriel’s incredible live performance of ‘In Your Eyes’ to inspire us to be open, creative, and vulnerable. The search for Unity, something we lost ages ago, can be found by reaching out to others during times of crisis. This song expresses that beautifully.
There is great comfort in the warmth of another’s eyes. It reminds us that we are not as alone as we often think. We’ve been through a lot over the last few thousand years, tortured by evil people with evil goals, on a seemingly forgotten, long-lost planet, and yet if we can see the Light in another, we will always find our way back home.
Hardship inspires greatness in us; and when things are at their darkest, people really start to shine. It’s when magick happens. We are naturally gifted when it comes to creating miracles—after all, a miracle is just another way of saying, ‘I love you’.
“Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.” – Margaret Mead
L is for Liberty. It also stands for Life, Laugh, and Love. How about Libra? That’s a good one, too. I can think of a few other words that start with L, but we’ll get to that in a bit. I wanted to focus on freedom first.
When Uranus moved first stoked the fires of social revolution in August of 2010, then slipped back into Pisces to give all the daydreamers a good kick in the pants, and then back into Aries in the spring of 2011, the entire world began to wake up. It was like a bell going off. We began to see we have been enslaved in many, many ways.
For generations, a handful of dark-minded control freaks have been trying to control us through debt-based money, alpha-male solar religions, parasitic political power, and corporate domination of our land and common resources. They’ve been doing a damn good job of it, too. Then, “Hello!” Uranus dropped in to say enough is enough.
That was just after Pluto entered Capricorn in 2007. He not only emptied our pockets, but pulled the plug on the elite’s whole financial game. (Remember, Capricorn is all about law, rules, responsibility, and finance.) The system is rigged, and Pluto showed us how silly it is to save interest-manipulated, credit notes in the first place.The upshot of Uranus changing us on a core level, while Pluto removes the shackles of money-fetishism, is freedom. Or, as the immortal Janis Joplin once sang, “Freedom’s just another word for nothin’ left to lose.”
We’ve had enough of being told self-appointed kings, queens, and presidents—we rule because our blood is better than yours, old chap—know what’s best for us. True freedom requires real self-responsibility; not that ‘We-can-do-it-for you!’ brand the Illuminati sells at a 40% introductory discount.
Secret society stuff is so last century. No one needs a book of royal rules so thick we need others to interpret it. Besides, there’s only one basic, common law, and it’s as old as the Universe: do what you feel as long as it doesn’t interfere with another soul’s journey. See? No racist middleman required.
Uranus will stay in Aries until the spring of 2019. That’s a long time to work out the new, self-rule, Uranus in Aries, Age of Aquarius thing. If people think the Revolution of Self happening all over the world is something to watch, we ain’t seen nothing yet.
In the meantime, I caution everyone not to spend too much time fighting the Powers-that-Were. Otherwise, we end up forgetting all the good out there.
Instead of toughening our hearts on shields and batons, why not walk in the other direction and create a life without the need for corporate police? They can’t have the planet unless we give it to them, we strip-mine it for them, we ask them to write our laws, we pay them to govern us—they simply don’t have the womanpower to do it all on their own. Why not keep our focus on more positive things?
We can start with Learning to Live in the Light. Meh. More intelligence Leaks? Not a bad idea. Listening to the Land? Getting there. How about we all Lollygag…okay, I just threw that one in there ’cause it’s fun to say out loud. Try it! A smile won’t be far behind.
The point is not to let others drag us down anymore. The elite need us to be angry and fighting over things for their own world of psychotic greed to make sense. We don’t need to play that game anymore. We are free, and have been since the Age of Aquarius began in 2012; heck, since the beginning of last decade; errrr, since the 50′s… wait, wait, wait! Since 1904, at least. Whooaaa! …well, ever since time began.
As long as we find some Levity at the end of the day, or at least a reason to smile, we’re doing good. It’s all in the Link, I think.
Oh! And why not get Laid while we’re at it? Just for good measure.
~ Dancing with the Stars ~
Feeling out of sorts, lately? The planets are giving us plenty of reasons to feel like we’re being batted back and forth like a ball in a cosmic tennis match; and as the Sun moves into Libra, even more so. Wheeee!
For starters, we get some financial relief as Pluto goes direct on September 20th. Thank heavens! If I get one more bill in the mail or one more unexpected expense, I’ll scream. Ever since Pluto went retrograde this spring, my partner and I will get a little ahead, and we’re sitting pretty, and…oh, no, there’s goes the car’s water pump. Kaching!
Pluto, the Master Soul Gardener, has been trimming the hedges so frickin’ close lately that most of us have learned to do without the darned hedge! And if things aren’t thin now, we can certainly hear the clippers coming.
Now that Pluto’s gone direct, we can expect those little hidden costs to come to an end. So, if anyone is about ready to shoot the mailman on sight, we can put the checkbook back in its holster; though, I wouldn’t put it that far out of reach.
Then, on September 21st, Saturn sextiles Pluto. It will help us get more comfortable with the Aquarian Age’s new dimension of liberated, spiritual living. For those who have been looking out the window in yoga class, putting off graduation to get in one more kickass party, it’s like being handed a cheat sheet during the final exam.
The thing is, at this point, no one should need the answers—we’ve been living them for the past decade. We are the cheat sheet. Everyone knows what to do with their lives now: create a fair and just society that benefits the entire world; indeed, the entire galaxy.
Finally, the Sun enters Libra on September 22nd. Although this sign is ruled by beautiful, supa-smexy Venus, Her incarnation in Libra also carries the Sword of Justice. I think a certain group of solar cultists have been missing that fact for some time, and one can only avoid the Fall Harvest for so long.
It’s like the Illuminati think because they leveled the Goddess’ ancient sacred hills and placed phallus symbols there instead, that they would simply live forever; or that the Earth was just going to go along with that kind of long-term, masculine imbalance. No, I do believe Gaia has some ideas of Her own. All She needs is a willing co-creator—a Lover, for those that follow the Tarot—to thrive and survive.
We are the caretakers of this world, and it’s time we started to take that innate responsibility a little more seriously. The Sun’s passage through Libra this month will help us remember everyone deserves to be treated with respect, and that freedom is our birthright.
~ Everyone Remain Calm, It’s just the New Age of Aquarius ~
As many readers know, I’m having UFO encounters on a nightly basis. Still nothing face-to-face, but sometimes it’s like that scene at the end of Close Encounters of the Third Kind. *grin* Well, not really, but I’ve seen so many flashing lights now that I’ve had a chance to try and figure out patterns. Definitely not Morse code, by the way.
Between that, the shiny UFOs that disappear and reappear, and the orange balls of brilliant light zooming over our apartment, I have to confess, I haven’t been able to work out much. I’m flabbergasted at the whole experience. Like Close Encounters, as one tech says to another after being blasted with a chorus of lights and sounds from the mothership, “It’s the first day of school.” Or, as my geeky friends like to say, “I’m such a noob.”
I really don’t get most of of it.
But! I have managed to work out a few things; and I feel now may be the time to start passing on some of the telepathic messages* I’m picking up from them. As best as I can, anyway.
Recently, in regards to my fear of an in-person encounter—seriously, some nights it’s like an electric field around my partner and I when they get real close, like being close to a transformer, and it’s very, very scary—they sent this message:
‘Fear cannot exist in the same place as love.’
I take that to mean that were they to appear in person at that moment, even immobilize me to protect themselves from an over-emotional, freaked-out human, that all I need to do is relax into a state of love, and anything that vibrates in a frequency of fear will vanish. Including them; if they were truly hostile.
The star-people have been counseling me on existing in a state of love since they first showed up in my life.* I know they want us to figure out the next step in our human-galactic evolution, not fear it. Though it takes courage to step through the door of first contact, walk through it, we will. I do believe they are here to make sure no one stands in the way of that. *looks at the back of a dollar bill*
An important planetary inconjunction is coming up that speaks to the same thing the UFOs have been conveying to me: things unfold naturally, and with universal power, when we are in a place of peace and love.
Saturn will be inconjunct with Uranus on October 5th. Circle this date on the calendar as there will be a mass karmic adjustment and many things will move forward from here. It may be hard for some people to tell at first, but this Fall will mark an important turning point in the life of this planet.
There is elemental magick at work as Uranus is currently in fiery Aries and Saturn is in watery Scorpio. Fire and Water creates a very steamy environment for our emotional issues to play out with our spiritual work.
As I’ve said a few times this year, I foresee arguments and misunderstandings coming up with couples over who is standing in who’s way. Or, is that whom is standing in who’s way? How many times do we have to talk about this? How could you say that? It’s like you like fighting with me! Why am I in this relationship?!
Yeah, more of that.
This year is simply not conducive to walking hand in hand into the sunset with a lover. It’s hard to be at peace with our cuddle-bunny if our Heart is not at peace with our Spirit. If we aren’t comfortable with ourselves first, no one is walking off anywhere. This inconjunction will bring a lot of that drama out so that we learn to be more at ease with ourselves, our past, and the roads we took to get here.
We also need to keep in mind that Pluto begins to sextile Chiron (karmic wounds) at this time, and this, too, will bring up old pain. It’s super-important to take care of our close relationships as cosmic forces are aligning against anything defunct, unbalanced, and inappropriate.
‘Nuff said? Not really, next month will emotionally drown the entire world.
~ Full Moon in Aries ~
Where are today’s leaders? Where are our great revolutionaries? I keep hearing this question being asked again and again. Does anyone really expect a reply to that? It’s so easy to see:
They’re watching chemtrail and 9/11 truther videos on YouTube, they’re posting the same links on Facebook, they’re talking with family and friends about these issues, they’re watching the news get worse and worse, asking, “Why isn’t anyone doing anything about the mess we’re in?”
Well? How long are you going to keep those answers to yourself?
This Full Moon in Aries will be a Lunar Eclipse. It will be very conducive to showing us our own natural leadership skills. Aries is a born pioneer, finding innovative solutions to old problems, cutting through injustice and stagnation. When the Moon nurtures those qualities in us, things get unstuck.
The Moon will be exactly full on October 18th at 7:39 pm on the east coast of North America, the same time many witches and wizards will be heading out for their lunar eclipse celebrations. If we find ourselves sitting out and watching the Full Moon rise around that time, expect to feel a big “push” as thousands of pagans usher in the next wave of social renegades.
Except these rebels won’t be carrying torches; these ones are born with a completely different perspective that precludes violence—they’re born with a big fire in their Heart.
They’re the generation born between the beginning of the 80s and the end of the 90s when Pluto passed through Scorpio. They’re the ones who understand that if it doesn’t involve the Heart Chakra, it’s not worth being on the world stage. They are the Love Revolutionaries and their time is now.
Their first order of business seems to be to topple anyone or anything that only cares for 1% of us. They know that everyone counts. I don’t think the timing or placement of this Lunar Eclipse could be any more appropriate, and I urge everyone to get out and howl at the Moon this month.
Let the Illuminati, the New World Order, the Committee of 300, the Council on Foreign Relations, the Dark Ones, the Vatican and London and Washington, know we’re coming. With each self-actualized roar, let them know we don’t need them to make any more decisions for us.
Let them all know that we can take it from here.
~ It Sounds like a Whisper ~
I could only think of one song that fit in with all the love, change, and positivity sweeping the planet, Tracy Chapman’s, ‘Talkin’ about a Revolution’. She really nailed it in this song. It’ll be a movement that comes from within, from the most repressed, the ones who always bear the mistakes of the upper-class: the poor.
Sadly, being impoverished is becoming commonplace as more of us fall through the cracks. Yet, through it all, the one thing we’ve learned from the elite’s war on the poor is that we need to take care of each other. It’s when we’re down that we shine the most, and, in that, the rich have failed to oppress and drive us into submission.
Social revolution has to come from the heart if it is to have any meaningful and lasting change. They can kill our bodies, but not our souls. The rich could never have won that war; all they have succeeded in doing is displaying their mental illness around vanity and avarice. It’s embarrassing, really.
All the ‘red-carpet’ folks can do now is try and start new wars, keep their tab running, and distract us with pain, need, and torment. But, we are not powerless. As we just saw when they tried to start World War III with Syria, the masses stood up and said, “No!” Not one more senseless war fought for the benefit of the rich, corporate slugs, and defense contractors.
NO! to big daddy leadership, no to gods and clods, no to the rat race, no to religious divide and conquer, no to the Rockefeller school system, no to the police state, no to spy vs spy, and NO! to their sociopathic New World Order.
Sorry, silly rabbit, Trix are for Kids! And we are, after all, just a bunch of big kids with big hearts and one big goal:
