So these past months Greg and I have been going through some tough times. Late last year we went to a mechanic that was actually breaking things in our car so he could get money from us. Needless to say I didn’t get those things fixed, but looked up if I needed them to be fixed in my owners manual. They bamboozled us, broke my air conditioner system and then told me to drive around with the A/C on (Freon had all leaked out and they knew this). If I did this and drove around without Freon in my system and my A/C on, I would have destroyed the whole A/C system, while metal flecks would have lodged itself into my system and would have rendered it useless.
He also told me that I need my transmission serviced, I am a schedule A driver, which means I don’t drive a lot (3 to 4,000 miles a year) and I don’t drive in rough conditions or stop and go traffic. This means I never have to have my transmission serviced unless they check it and something is wrong.
He told me that I needed a PCV valve, I don’t need one for another 13,000 miles and that would take me at least 4 to 5 years to get to 60,000 miles as I am only at 47,000 now. Unless it is broken I don’t want it serviced, I told him this as we are on a tight budget.
Another company we are trying to work with has installed my stereo in my car incorrectly as it has depleted 7 batteries so far in the 8 years I have had my car. They keep installing it back the way they had originally set it up and we have to unhook it as it depleted my new battery already after purchasing it a week prior. I now need to have Greg go in there and talk to them because they want to charge me $120/hr for a diagnostic fee. We can’t afford that.
We also experienced our car breaking down completely and we had to have it towed to the service station (the new mechanic we are going to now) and they fixed that portion of the car, but lots of things are wrong with it and we just have to get it done piecemeal.
So my car is riding rough, I need spark plugs too, since 15,000 miles ago and I need a new Power Steering Switch as well as my A/C fixed and my stereo system.
I got a letter as well in the mail that said that my car insurance was going to be cancelled. We had an accident in September (a small fender bender, scratch and ding) and we changed our policy without getting my car fixed as we can’t afford it. So instead of saying that we couldn’t have that particular policy, they sent a letter making me think that my accident was why my insurance is being cancelled. Also, they should not have said cancelled as it should have said that I have to change my policy because their computer didn’t account for the accident as it wasn’t in their system, because I didn’t get it fixed. However, I still have a policy, just at a different rate. However, this is not what the letter led me to believe, so I was in a state of panic with everything else going on.
Another thing that happened was that Greg’s cousin, who has Schizophrenia, lent us some money last month so we could buy food. A few days later he asks if we need more money. A week goes by and we told him when he gave us the money, that we wouldn’t be able to pay him right away because we owed money to other debts first. He said that was fine. So the day before we got paid he said that he needed the money back because there was this Black Lab that he wanted to buy, but he wasn’t sure if the owner wanted to sell the dog and he wasn’t sure if the landlord would approve him having the dog. The next day he called us at noon and asked if we had the money, we told him no and he got mad, said that he would have to figure out something and hung up on us. We went to run an errand later in the evening and when we got home there was a voicemail from him saying: “FU Greg and you too Wendy, I can’t believe you didn’t have the decency to call me to tell me you didn’t have the money, I have no food or cigarettes”. Wondering how one day he had money for a dog and the next day he had no food or cigarettes. I guess he got a dog and the both of them are starving? Or did he think we would be more compassionate for giving him back the money for the dog instead of food? Also, having Schizophrenia makes you forget as well as all of the narcotics he is on for his physical disability doesn’t help. We ran over to his house the next day after sending a lower payment to one of our debtors, so he would have some money for food and/or cigarettes. He called us two weeks later for the rest of the money and we drove over to give him the rest. No thank you, nothing, no phone calls from him ever again as we used to speak to him twice a week.
Two years ago I sold him my other car, tax free (as a gift), at 50% off as I could have sold it for twice the amount. He was paying us up until he had totaled the car, but didn’t want to tell us, so he stopped paying and stopped calling us. I kept calling him for 3 months, nothing. Finally I called his daughter to get him to pay us, which worked after 2 weeks of hassling them. He stopped paying us again after 2 more months of payments and then said it was all paid off and refused to give us any money again until I got his daughter involved with his affairs once again and showed him the receipts. So how is his treatment to us fair based on how we gave him such slack on the amount of the vehicle and especially when he didn’t pay us? I did not call him names, I was actually understanding about it all, but I never expected to get paid for the rest of my car even though I did and it was a struggle to get it. It’s not fair and when you have Schizophrenia, you don’t recognize your own behaviors, only others.
Then our washing machine broke earlier this year and we were lucky to know someone that buys auctioned storage units, furniture, and sold us the one they bought for much less than a new washing machine and it was barely used, if ever. We were so grateful and didn’t know what we were going to do because we were severely behind on the wash.
We have to get our stuff out of storage because we thought we would have moved out of this house already into a new home, but it has not happened (because disability wasn’t part of the plan), so we have to get my stuff from my home in Massachusetts, which is in storage, to this house, because we just can’t afford it anymore. We have cleared out the garage to do this and will hopefully have our friends help us get our stuff out of storage next week.
Today we are throwing out 2 couches that are damaged and giving away another so that we can bring my couches from storage to use in our home to replace the ones we are throwing out. A couple of neighbors are helping us with that. We are very lucky to have neighbors that are helping us out like this.
So if we didn’t ask for help, we wouldn’t have gotten it at all, because no one would know what we needed.
Through all of this, we started our garden. Our seed started plants all got eaten by our kitten, Majik, so we had to buy Bonnie plants (non-GMO) for most of them. Now we had an animal eat all 3 of our watermelon plants last night, so we have to plant 3 more and put a rabbit fence around that garden area (we have 4 garden areas because we have a small yard).
And then we were having our website service run out because we didn’t have the funds, but luckily we called and they extended our service until this weekend without payment until then.
So as you can see we have been very busy taking care of our affairs here and some are resolved, while others still remain an issue, but we are taking everything in stride as best we can.
Zooey did say in her last article that there would be a tumultuous few years here and well, I guess this is testing my anger and my patience. Things that I am constantly working on and one of the last couple of things that I really have to iron out within myself. Greg on the other hand, he is patient and doesn’t get angry as much as me, so he is guiding me too in the ways I deal with things in life.
Greg’s lesson in all of this, is to be patient with me (or people like me) as he can be impatient with me at times because I can be so very intense and it can be hard to handle for some people. Greg is one to be a diplomat. Me? I am the one to go in with all guns blazing, but I am learning.
Life can throw you some real curve balls, but we just keep getting up and doing what we need to do and beat these obstacles down with a Styrofoam brick instead of a stick.
”In your mind you have capacities, you know, to telepath messages through the vast unknown.”
– Klaatu, ‘Calling Occupants of Interplanetary Craft‘
The Sun enters the cosmic sign of Gemini on May 20th and opens the gates to universal connection and communication. As we begin reaching out to each other in the New Age, and reaching out to other celestial civilizations, the starry flow of the galactic tides will pour through each and every one of us this month*.
Through Gemini our thoughts unite in search of Truth and Identity as we figure out who we are as incarnated souls in the great Wheel of Life. This sign marks the educated mind. ‘I think therefore I am.’ Although in Gemini’s case, it may be more appropriate to say, ‘I learn therefore I am’.
We can usually find these folks looking through the big telescope at the local observatory. Or, perhaps on their way to a new symposium, even a rock concert. These world travelers have thought out the last word on almost every subject. They study science, art, and philosophy for kicks, exploring a little bit of everything, becoming the jack of all trades necessary for the successful voyage of any starship.
It’s no surprise to me that many people born under this sign are Trekkies as I know a couple who can play at expert level on Spock’s 3D Vulcan chess. I didn’t even know this game really existed beyond the TV series until a Gemini friend explained it to me in detail back in college. I’m still not sure I get all the mind-bending rules, but I did learn that I don’t ever want to challenge her to a match—that would be illogical, Captain.
These Space Academy graduates can not only out-think most people, but they can calculate the exact velocity for a trajectory orbit needed to warp around the Sun through space and time. Quite handy if we’re ever lost in the backwaters of the Milky Way and need a way home.
Geminis are a gambit within a stratagem; a free-floating, radical particle; and the last thing anyone expects.
~ Come in, Houston. Are You receiving Me? ~
I would know something about being waylaid with the unexpected as I’ve been recently contacted by UFOs. It’s why I suddenly started writing about my occult knowledge. Though it was a bit of a shock to see something so strange, I don’t feel as alone now that I’ve had my own personal version of disclosure.
I’m sure a lot of people join me in feeling lost and separated on this planet. It’s like I fell asleep at an out of the way stop on an intergalactic bus tour and my group left without me. Now I can’t find the 1-800 universal number because I threw away the dang brochure! I just don’t belong here. I’m tired, and I want to go home.
Looking back on my life, I can see I’ve been directed by an unseen force to share what I know time and again. I’ve always said no. Even now, though it amounts to no more than having a fleet of UFOs following me and my family around most nights (and the occasional flying travel-trailer that seems to be able to wink in and out of sight at whim), I usually don’t give these sightings much thought. Most of the work seems to be happening with my consciousness, not my eyes.
In fact, one of the most extraordinary things that has ever happened to me directly preceded my recent UFO sightings. My right eye saw beautiful, white-golden, spiraling mandalas for an hour one late winter afternoon. It looked like something out of an advanced, physics text book with long, trailing, tangential arcs shooting off from each other. I probably would have really enjoyed the light-show if I didn’t think I was having a stroke. A few months later, though, they *points up* showed up in my life in a big way.
Up til now, I didn’t want to share my visions. I’ve simply refused to be a shaman. Yet when visions start happening, ready or not, it’s hard to let that kind of thing slide. The Dream-beings want to be heard; and it’s hard to say no when one’s calling tackles them to the ground and puts a peace-pipe in their hand.
I still don’t like the idea I’m a shaman. I would rather just dance and sing and paint and write my life away. All my inner planets are in Leo. Any astrologers out there will know what that means—I was born doing ‘jazz hands’. However, a shaman’s life is not their own. That’s a lesson I keep learning, too. It’s not about me dancing this time around, it’s about helping others find the beat.
I have been asked to communicate what I know to help bring in awareness of the bazillion UFOs and their occupants circling our planet. That’s an honorable charge, and I’ve decided to use my knowledge of the ancient art of astrology to do so. Sadly, the Earth-kin won’t accept what it’s unfamiliar with, so it helps to use traditional wisdom to share the first steps in joining the greater, galactic community.
Besides, it’s not a bad idea to return to some of our tribal roots when we lived as one with Gaia; especially, where nutrition is concerned. For those that are dis-eased at the moment, a return to some of our old, natural-eating habits would be a very, very wise idea.
I don’t have much to more to say about our Sky-friends for now aside from one thing:
They love us.
~ Throw down that Concept, Pardner! ~
Why am I making such a big deal of all this ethereal stuff? Because the same day as the Sun passes into Gemini (communication), the Moon moves into Libra (freedom) while Uranus and Pluto become exactly square.
What happens when a social revolutionary like Uranus squares off with Pluto the transformative sage? I would imagine something like a Kung Fu version of ‘High Noon’ where the only thing left standing is Truth, Justice, and the Gaian Way. It’s time we all grew up. All our bad habits from the past have to go…but not before they put up a fight. I can’t tell you how many people I know who are challenging their old Selves to a showdown at the spiritual OK Corral.
It’s been a bit bloody, hasn’t it? Not just from this latest astrological shootout, either. A lot of people have been going through different versions of this type of internal, mystical struggle since Neptune returned to its home sign of Pisces. That was back in April of 2011. Remember that year? It was the year the masses started to wake up and remember why they came here. They began to remember their grand, soul dreams.
(*Side note – as a shaman, I was born awake. Trust me, it sucked! It’s a life of crushing loneliness. But, as someone who has been running around the spaceship by myself for the last 40 odd years while most people have been deep asleep in their cryo-chambers, I am a witness to people and generations waking up; and I noticed a loud system-alarm went off right after 9/11.
In my opinion, it was the stupidest mistake the Illuminati ever made because it woke up so many people at once. I heard through the occult grapevine that the female Illuminati were very pissed off about what the boys in the Rockefeller clan did that morning. It exposed them way before they were ready.
The Women of the False Light control the Cult of Dionysus; or as it’s better known, Hollywood. Illusions, dreams, reflected images, drug-addled revelry, high fashion, and all that. Want to find a real, living-and-breathing, Illuminati member? Google the keywords L’Oreal and Illuminati and see what happens. An entire generation is right out there for everyone to see. Who the heck would trust a maker of eye-liners to shape a nation’s politics, anyway? Or, how about the resurgence of all that parasitic, vampire stuff they tried to romanticize on TV and in the movies last decade?
The Luciferian Ladies prefer a more subtle, lasting approach to global mind-control, lulling us to sleep while they suck our blood like a leech; whereas the Satanic Sons like a more in-your-face, let’s rock n roll!, military attitude.
By the way, wasn’t all that ‘shock and awe’, Desert Storm, alpha male stuff embarrassing? It was like having the local neighborhood jerk get drunk, turn up his music, start screaming at his in-laws, and finally end up staggering around singing ‘The Star-Spangled Banner’ with his yoohoo hanging out. *shudder* Who isn’t getting tired of these childish, Illuminati tantrums?
There have been waves of people waking up every ten years or so. Each time, something happens to put them back to sleep. My sister hall-runners may have noticed the same thing. For example, back in the late 80′s as my own so-called ‘Generation X’ was waking up, King George invaded the Middle-east and promptly shut everyone down again by the early 90′s.
The years between 2001 to 2004, during the reign of King George II and his own Islamic War, seemed to be when most people woke up, though. From what I hear, there hasn’t been an awakening like that since the late 50′s and early 60′s.
There was another stirring in the sleep cycle when Pluto changed signs back in 2008. Anyhoo…)
It takes a long time for outer planets to come into alignment with each other; and, with a square, we end up going through an extended period of psychological turmoil. Our minds can’t settle down and we feel disgruntled with ourselves and our direction in life.
I’m sure a lot of people have been feeling this way for awhile now. I know I have. Like, enough already, let’s get on with the promise of a new age kinda thing. Well, this square from May 4th to June 7th will bring a lot of that to a head.
With the philosophical feud going on with Uranus and Pluto being fed by the Sun and Moon changing to Air signs (the witchy element of Air is about Ideas, Movement, and Mind), it may be hard for some of us to contain our frustrations at the peak of the square (May 19th, 20th, and 21st).
It may help to keep in mind that we are at spiritual odds with ourselves, not our loved ones. Gemini and Libra love to debate and we need to be careful of letting our internal argument involve others. Unless you have the kind of friends and family that like the idea of a drive-by argument; then, by all means, lock n load, commander!
~ Red Moon at Midnight ~
Picking up where I left off last month, there is a revolution of mind sweeping the planet. It’s everywhere I look now. I mean, I do still see people stuck in the mud and flinging old, social constructs at each other; but for the most part, there is something new and fresh happening in our world. We are starting to ‘get it’.
This month there will be a beautiful Full Moon eclipse to remind us of that. At Midnight EDT* on May 25th, the Sagittarian Moon will grow dark and red. It will steep us in notions of what it takes to run a planet. Really run a planet. Not just letting a group of self-appointed, savior-complex, solar cultists do it for us.
It’s time we took our power back. Everyone knows it. We need a government accountability office, for starters; and one owned by the people. It’s a bad idea to wait for a government long past an overhaul to regulate itself. Ever read ‘Animal Farm’? We are free, sovereign people and we can make decisions for ourselves.
This is the mass, mental insurrection I am speaking of. It’s not a horde of angry people with torches on the steps of a government building—though we certainly do see that more and more around the globe these days—but an awakening to personal and collective responsibility. Try to remember that while out and about taking in the lunar delights.
We have crossed over into the New Age. When this month’s Full Moon begins to bleed, it’s a reminder of all the suffering the Human race has been through and where we need to go next. No one on this tortured planet wants to take it anymore, and it reflects those passions. Let’s also remember the sacrifice it sometimes takes for us to break free from oppression.
Our moment has come. The time for action is now. Witches and shaman around the globe will be doing the whirling, spectral dance to help emancipate the planet. I will. Hopefully, I’ll see everyone else out for a moonlight tango, too.
~ The Dream-master is lost at Sea ~
If we thought this spring’s stellium in watery Pisces was bad, wait until this summer’s Great Waves of Woe. I’ll be covering this collective drowning extensively in next month’s article, but suffice it to say, it’s time to gather supplies and batten down the hatches again. See those dark clouds on the horizon? That’s Neptune going retrograde. It’s the beginning of two seasons of waterlogged, tear-soaked fun.
I hope folks who have been following these guides have stocked up on dry clothes and inflatable life rafts. Maybe a bottle of rum or two. We’re about to embark on a half year of dramatic, ‘Why did this happen? I thought it was over!’, living in an emotional riptide. If we haven’t lashed ourselves to the mast, we’ll be washed away. I’ve really been trying to give everyone fair warning but it’s hard to tell people they’re setting sail on a ship that’s about to sink. Other than asking if they know how to tread water.
From June 7th until November 13th, Neptune will reverse course through Pisces. It’s sets the keynote for the marathon, spiritual swim that began this spring with Mercury’s retrograde in Pisces. It won’t come to an end until the middle of Scorpio when Mercury, Neptune and Chiron—all in water signs—return to a direct motion. That’s a long time to paddle around in the touchy-feely, often turbulent, element of Water.
Though it may get a bit exhausting, we’ll get through this in the same way we survived last fall’s mystic monsoon. Just, you know, bring some water-wings.
~ Saturn throws Us a Rope ~
Retrograde Saturn, strangely enough, steps into a benefice role during this, the Year of the Psychic Flood. It trines Neptune on June 11th and, due to these planets retrograde motion, again on July 19th. It won’t leave this harmonious alignment until August 6th.
Though it may trigger a few Neptunian tidal bores over the next couple of months, it’s only to set off some pressure deep, deep underwater. This way the waves further out won’t get too big when they reach shore.
If we do end up overboard, hang onto anything floating by. We’re never alone during crisis; if only we look beyond our comfort zone. (That’s another way of saying: ask our Guardian Angels for help. *Hint, hint*) It’ll give us an opportunity to pull ourselves up onto the battered hull of our Old Selves, towel off, and prepare for the next wave.
What’s funny to me is that no one seems to have noticed the connection between all the watery aspects this year and the New Age of Aquarius. The Water-bearer? Duh-uh. What did we think was going to happen? The Sun was going to explode in a giant fireball? Or, perhaps a massive earthquake? Planetary implosion? No, we’re being set awash in the healing waters of the New Age. Anyone who didn’t prepare for this is now in over their heads with remorse over everything they couldn’t bring with them.
And, grieving over all those people who didn’t make it this far.
It’s painful, I know, but we have to sail on. Goodbyes are a part of life. We can’t stay innocent forever, and we can’t live with our feet in two different Ages. Thankfully, this year we’re being given one last chance to talk with the ghosts of the past before we move on for good; one last chance to say what we wanted to those who now walk with the Elders.
~ The Calm before the Storm ~
The first few swells of the incoming, emotional tsunami should be felt by the end of the solar month. Chiron, ‘the wounded healer’, goes retrograde in Pisces on June 16th, and it won’t go direct again until late fall.
This errant shooting star will be salting our wounds all throughout the upcoming deluge. Though it may hurt to open up our secret lockers, we can’t properly treat a traumatic event until we understand how it happened. This is why Chiron is poking our sore spots with a stick—it’s revealing the wounds we’ve been hiding. For most of us, that’s anything standing in the way of lasting peace.
I would take this quiet moment before the looming soul-storm to reflect on some of yesterday’s scrapes and bruises. In coming to terms with old defeats, we can set a course for today’s victories. The universe is a very loving place. It wants us to succeed and it’s sending us a gift to help us through this year’s empathic hurricane: humility.
We have all drowned in our sorrows before; and many times we had to turn back or we’d be lost at sea. Let’s not allow our Heads to get so big that we forget our Heart’s first, simple voyages out into the Ocean of Wisdom.
~ Greetings, Humans! ~
The song I chose for the month is ‘Calling Occupants of Interplanetary Craft’ by Klaatu. It seemed appropriate to focus on our Star-cousins. There’s so much happening in the sky lately, I’m surprised more people haven’t set out lawn chairs.
I would really like to pass along a message, too. They’re here to help. So many of us have been crying out for assistance for so long, did we really think no one would show up?
They appear to be doing it as gently as possible without taking away our inherent rights or interfering with our developing, planetary culture. The way we would if it were us responding to another world’s plea for help. And I’m sure we will. Someday.
We just need a few, adventurous souls, and someone to pilot the spaceship. And a Vulcan or two.

I switched over to transparent png files this month. That should take care of the irregular white borders. And thank you for sharing my articles.
*** …this month*. – As above, so below.
I’m a firm believer that what affects the Sun, affects us all. Indeed, we each have a ‘solar cave’ existing behind our breastbone according to the Hindus. When the Sun changes signs, it’s reflected in our Heart-light, too.
This is how they write up those funny, little ditties in the newspaper giving us an astrological flashcard for each sign. It’s easy if one understands that we’re each feeling the Sun’s current sign versus our birth sign minus the current planetary configuration…divided by the cotangent of our feelings and squared by Pi.
**** The eclipse should be spectacular on the west coast of North America, too.
It will be 9:30p there and the last of twilight will be fading away as a Cherry Moon crests the trees and mountains. Have fun my cuddly, riot grrl, Super-women on Canada’s west coast! (V.I. – Keep up the good fight! I miss your shining jewel!)
***** Yes, I am a transgender person.
That doesn’t mean I’m a cross-dresser (that’s a transvestite and it’s a sexual fetish) or that I know your gay friend from Chicago. It simply means I was born with a female mind wrapped in a male body. Thankfully, a very small and dainty male body. I have absolutely no interest in any of the traditional male activities like working on cars, competitive carousing, ‘picking up chicks’, those silly car chase movies, or all the ballyhoo around sports. I never have.
Being born this way, and through a lot of misfortune, I’ve had to come to terms with both genders. The feminine self I naturally identify with, and the masculine gender that has been socially superimposed over me. It hasn’t been easy.
Though it made my life a living hell, it also allowed me to escape the confines of the Matrix at a very young age, a time when the social programming and gender-stereotyping kicks in for most people. When I was in kindergarten, the teacher divided the class into boys and girls. I was laughed at for raising my hand and suggesting I was in the wrong group. I quickly figured out the system they’re selling us doesn’t apply to everyone.
I use the word ‘transgender’ because it’s an umbrella term for anyone who exhibits the opposite gender than the one aligned with their genitalia. (Or, someone who presents both genders; or, no gender at all.) Technically, I’m a transsexual; but I’ve decided not to pursue sexual reassignment surgery for the moment. I think I’d like to see where this all leads before I start messing around ‘under the hood’. *grin*
There is a long tradition of transgender Medicine People with native clans around the world. We’re called ‘cinder-biters’ or we’re ‘born with two souls’; and we’re highly respected for our ability to see into the beyond and find solutions to impossible problems. I have a feeling it’s why so many transgender people are present on the planet right now—we’re here to transcend the Illuminati’s sick ‘divide and conquer’ strategy on an innate, fundamental level.
But I don’t need all that to figure out who I am. I have always known my mind is female. As anyone who has spent four hours chatting with me on Skype will tell you, I love to talk about what’s happening with everyone. And then talk about it some more. I have a creative, fire-powered mind that just bubbles over when I get a chance to meet new people.
I’m one of those over-the-top, high-maintenance, girly-girls that are so sweet it makes our teeth hurt. I can make a four-course vegetarian meal and still have time for apple martinis at the local dance club. I chat with store cashiers because I want them to know I see they have lives and feelings, too. I’m a soccer mom on a mission. I’m a butterfly looking for a place to land. Exactly how many men do you know who not only have stuffed animals, but have named them all?
Any? If you know even one, I guarantee you they’re a transgender person, too.
Here at RFTS, we’ve been talking about Monsanto and the dangers of GMO (Genetically Modified Organism) foods for a couple of years now (link to search term for articles including “GMO” on RFTS - you may want to read a few so that you can have a full understanding of why we are protesting). GMO food is the reason that we switched to organic and non-GMO foods and which is why we started growing our own food, organically, starting in 2012.
We’ve recently learned about the March Against Monsanto via GMO Free PA’s Facebook page. In fact, on Tuesday, May 14th, GMO Free PA had a group meeting to discuss the march happening on May 25th in the Philadelphia suburbs, not too far from our house, but we were not able to make it, however we hope to connect with them at the march. We stopped eating GMO foods almost 2 years ago and both Wendy and I have had major improvements in our overall health and we’ve lost weight as a “side effect”! Recent reports have shown that the nutritional value of GMO crops is inferior to non-GMO crops which is probably why we’ve felt so lousy for such a long time. If you want to avoid these foods, here are the basics you’ll need to think about, “How to Avoid Genetically Modified Food“.
To see why the organizers created the “March Against Monsanto” event, it becomes quite evident when we read their mission statement:
Why do we march?
Research studies have shown that Monsanto’s genetically-modified foods can lead to serious health conditions such as the development of cancer tumors, infertility and birth defects.
In the United States, the FDA, the agency tasked with ensuring food safety for the population, is steered by ex-Monsanto executives, and we feel that’s a questionable conflict of interests and explains the lack of government-led research on the long-term effects of GM products.
Recently, the U.S. Congress and president collectively passed the nicknamed “Monsanto Protection Act” that, among other things, bans courts from halting the sale of Monsanto’s genetically-modified seeds.
For too long, Monsanto has been the benefactor of corporate subsidies and political favoritism. Organic and small farmers suffer losses while Monsanto continues to forge its monopoly over the world’s food supply, including exclusive patenting rights over seeds and genetic makeup.
Monsanto’s GM seeds are harmful to the environment; for example, scientists have indicated they have contributed to Colony Collapse Disorder among the world’s bee population.
What are solutions we advocate?
Voting with your dollar by buying organic and boycotting Monsanto-owned companies that use GMOs in their products.
Labeling of GMOs so that consumers can make those informed decisions easier.
Repealing relevant provisions of the US’s “Monsanto Protection Act.”
Calling for further scientific research on the health effects of GMOs.
Holding Monsanto executives and Monsanto-supporting politicians accountable through direct communication, grassroots journalism, social media, etc.
Continuing to inform the public about Monsanto’s secrets.
Taking to the streets to show the world and Monsanto that we won’t take these injustices quietly.
We will not stand for cronyism. We will not stand for poison. That’s why we March Against Monsanto.
On May 1st, Emilie Rensink, Media Facilitator of the, “March Against Monsanto” organization, posted a press release created for this event which states:
May 25 ‘March Against Monsanto’ planned for over 30 countries
SEATTLE, Wash. (May 1, 2013) – March Against Monsanto has announced that on May 25, tens of thousands of activists around the world will “March Against Monsanto.” Currently, marches are being planned on six continents, in 36 countries, totaling events in over 250 cities, and in the US, events are slated to occur simultaneously at 11 a.m. Pacific in 47 states.
Tami Monroe Canal, lead organizer and creator of the now-viral Facebook page, says she was inspired to start the movement to protect her two daughters. “I feel Monsanto threatens their generation’s health, fertility and longevity. I couldn’t sit by idly, waiting for someone else to do something.” [The full March Against Monsanto mission statement can be read here.]
An organizer for the march in Athens, Greece, Roberta Gogos, spoke about the importance of the events in austerity-impacted South Europe. “Monsanto is working very hard to overturn EU regulation on obligatory labeling (questionable whether it’s really enforced in any case), and no doubt they will have their way in the end. Greece is in a precarious position right now, and Greece’s farmers falling prey to the petrochemical giant is a very real possibility.”
Josh Castro, organizer for Quito, says he wants to protect Ecuador against Monsanto’s influence, too. “Ecuador is such a beautiful place, with the richest biodiversity in the world. We will not allow this Garden of Eden to be compromised by evil multinational corporations like Monsanto. Biotechnology is not the solution to world hunger. Agroecology is.”
We originally thought this march was only taking place in Washington, DC. Imagine our surprise when we found out this march was not only nationwide, but global! The march is happening in only 5 cities here in Pennsylvania, most on the eastern side of the state and as of right now, include Philadelphia, West Chester, Lancaster, Harrisburg and Pittsburgh. The first two cities listed are about 10 miles or less from our house and we’re hoping to be able to attend one of them to show our support!
I hope some of our local friends can join us! For a complete list of cities where this march will be held, it can be found, sorted alphabetically, by country, at this link - note that this list is preliminary and may expand. If you’d like to organize the event in a city which is not listed, contact the folks at March Against Monsanto for information, here.
Finally, here are two videos from RT America and PressForTruth.TV discussing this event. You can find more videos and referenced news articles posted on the “March Against Monsanto” site’s Media page.
Please join Ready For The Shift on 25 May 2013 to March Against Monsanto!
“Forget not that the earth delights to feel your bare feet and the winds long to play with your hair.”
– Kahlil Gibran
If there is one word that can sum up the feeling of love, it’s the word, home. It’s there that we first learned to walk and play and interact with others. We dress it up with sunshine and fine linens in the morning; and it’s there we curl up at the end of a long day. Simply put, home is where our hearts dwell.
It’s also where we’d find a Taurus. The gardeners of the world, the Druids of legend, the Hobbits of the Zodiac—if something is growing there, it’s guaranteed you’ll find a Taurus close by with a watering can. They’re not only our best friends, but best friends of Mother Earth.
That moment when we’re on the side of the road hoping someone will come by and help? It’s usually a Taurus that shows up. It’s my bet that many have incarnated at this time to assist in Gaia’s birth of the new Age of Aquarius. Taureans are here to remind us of how precious this world is, and that we need to love and care for one other. And to play. And, you know, build a house, make some shiny coins, and have some kids along the way.
Is it any wonder Venus, the Goddess of Love, rules this sign? Or that many of the people born in Taurus are some of the sexist people alive? Their eyes either smolder with a deep, earthy passion or sparkle like the heavens. They are anointed with demure cosmic vision; and they never, ever rush anything.
I thought I’d focus on our homes this month because a couple of exciting things happen to our grand abode, planet Earth. We have a partial Lunar Eclipse at the end of April and a full Solar Eclipse at the beginning of May. For the entire first half of Taurus, right up until the New Moon’s Solar Eclipse, we will be surrounded in oodles of unified-mind, cross-current, psychic energy. I wouldn’t be surprised if a few miracles happen for people during this time as eclipses are especially useful when talking with our Higher Selves.
Also, Uranus the Revolutionary and Mercury the Communicator will be conjunct in fiery Aries as the Sun and Mars move into Taurus. Again, it’s some of that portentous, witchy stuff that I watch for in the heavens. With Mercury briefly joining Uranus in beaming, active Aries as a Mars-powered, volcanic Sun moves into the fixed, earthy sign of Taurus, it is an omen that there will be a lot of positive, domestic changes this year, and that a lot of people will be in on making them happen.
A revolution of mind is beginning to occur across the planet, and it’s happening against the backdrop of a svelte and sexy Taurus sky. It’s time to welcome the Age of Hope, Love, and Universal Connection; and to open our Hearts to the much heralded Age of Aquarius.
We are now living the New Age. It’s time to be ourselves.
~ Full Moon Eclipse in Scorpio ~
On April 25th, the Earth will pass between the Sun in Taurus and the Moon in Scorpio at 4:07p Eastern Time, just a few minutes after the Moon goes exactly full. All Gaians will feel a little tug in their tummy as the Feminine Earth and Moon unite and balance with the Masculine Sun. It will be a time of internal peace, and I do hope everyone takes a beat to harmonize with this exquisite, genderless(–ful) moment.
As I mentioned, an eclipse will happen twice this month; first, the Earth will block the Sun’s light in a partial eclipse of the Moon allowing for a more rounded, emotional perspective, and then the Moon will completely block out the Sun from our view a couple of weeks later. This indicates a very profound sexual and mental energy exchange within our psyches as the year gets underway. I believe many people will truly wake up and find enlightenment as their minds become One over the next few weeks, and over the rest of the year, as well.
That makes me smile a lot. It’s a wonderful harbinger of things to come; we need a new generation to help focus on making things happen in the world and here they come. Making really good things happen. Really, really good things.
Let’s us all try and welcome the newly awake with comforting arms as the Full Moon rises; those who are bringing in a fresh perspective on Aquarian living. This generation understands that existing within community comes from inner unity and honor (as does every other galactic citizen) and this eclipse reminds us to act accordingly and do the right thing.
~ Merry Beltane! ~
The few days that traditionally mark the festival of Beltane is a period of “no time”, like Samhain, where the veils are very thin between this world and the world of spirit. It is said that one can communicate with those on the other side at these two points in the yearly cycle; and, whereas All Hallow’s Eve is a time for talking with the dead, May’s Eve is a time of talking with those yet to come.
Hence it is one huge, honking, fertility feast. Are we supposed to think those colorful witches dancing around the May Pole are cavorting with a simple, wooden pole? Have you seen the size of that pole? Or the undulating streamers they are wrapping around it? Um, no, my dearies, they’re dancing around a cock. I’d use a more euphemistic term like ‘a penis’, but no witch is dancing around a penis at this time of year; no, no, they’re dancing around the world’s biggest kahuna.
Think the ritual stops with that dance? It’s a time to git bizzay and every Pagan knows it. It may not be a bad idea to be careful walking home late on April 30th or May 1st because we just might find the person of our dreams…and everything else we were secretly hoping for.
This May’s Eve, we find a Taurean Sun trine Pluto in Capricorn. I probably don’t have to explain what our Master Gardener, Pluto, has been up to by now, so it won’t surprise anyone to know our Soul Sensei is clearing the Way for some more growth this month; especially for those who have been putting in a lot of hard work lately. Look for some relief in the form of unexpected opportunities, some help around the house, or even a bit of money to help us along our life path—if we’ve been going with the karmic flow. If not, weeellll, I’d expect a bit more spiritual pruning.
But! For goodness sake, get out and have some holiday fun! Celebrate all that new, earthy, green abundance! We’re Humans after all. Why not dance to the tune of Gaia’s heavenly waltz through Taurus? Beltane is one of the eight spokes on the witch’s Wheel of Life and it deserves special attention as an important planetary passage.
Mercury also enters Taurus on Beltane and the Moon will be conjunct Pluto. It affirms our minds would do well to focus on working on our homes, comforting our loved ones, and taking the next step in our lives. While we’re enjoying the festivities, stop and smell the roses. Beltane is celebrated outdoors for a reason; let’s relax, hunker down with Earth’s roses, arms folded behind our head, watch the stars come up, and become One with it all.
Just remember, any food left over from our May’s Eve celebration is to be left out for the Fairies on May 1st. The wee folk are just coming back from their winter home and delight in playing pranks on those who do not make their journey easier on Beltane Day.
It’s better to honor them with a tasty, mid-morning munch so they move along to their own realms—unless people like the idea of gremlins having fun in the walls for the next few weeks. In other words, it’s best to keep our house well-stocked over the holidays. Try to avoid any Fairy-rings at this time of year, too. *wink*
~ Full Solar Eclipse – May 9th ~
Then, time stopped.
Yes, it’s Eclipse no. 2 of the month. We’re blowin’ the lower hatchways, Cap’n! Heaven help those who are standing in the Divine Feminine’s way.
Many of us have been hanging on to a butt-load of psychic baggage—that’s no surprise, really, as our minds have been the favorite dumping ground for the Illuminati’s garbage for ages—and I think a lot of people are about ready to give. And why not? What was, was. Isn’t everyone ready for what’s next?
As an Empath and Ojibwe Medicine Person*, I have been counseling people to let go of the struggle for personal and galactic freedom, that silly NWO war for our minds, and simply get on with things. We need to stop feeding their never-ending, intellectual fear-fest, turn off the TV, put down the sign, stop holding up the pyramid, talk to our neighbors again, take a vacation, calm down, and begin living a better tomorrow today. Yeah?
It’s like some women’s self-esteem issues. I’ve met so many amazing women who have spent a lifetime trying to get out from under all the patriarchal crapola only to realize that the whole struggle is a scam. It’s a faux-argument meant to condition us into thinking that men have a right to decide how a woman looks, acts, thinks, or feels. It exhausts us before we even get to the real issue—that Big Daddy doesn’t even have a say in the first place. It’s a shell game designed to distract us while we’re being ripped off. We’re fine the way we are, just walk away.
The truth is, and always has been, that women are very powerful psychic creators. They don’t need anyone’s permission to be themselves or to live their lives in their own way. By setting a war between a woman and her body, and then encouraging society to support (and judge) a woman’s ability to successfully live detached from it, the Illuminati have accomplished the most insidious mental and emotional assault on the Human race in thousands of years.
They scored a direct hit on one of our most sacred rights: a Woman’s innate free will; and her right to an unfettered life for herself, her body, her mate, her children, her village, and her planet. A life lived with soul. It is to female children of Gaia that we owe our very existence; and that is something that has been taken for granted for far too long.
What these ‘rapidly aging’, Babylonian sorcerers have done is despicable, and yet a very effective means of population control. It pits one half of the human race against the other in constant bickering. We are so busy taking each others inventory that we are too busy to notice who’s minding the community store, or the bland, imitation products they’re selling.
As the Moon stands before the Sun at 8.28p ET on the evening of May 9th, all good witches will be out realigning the Light’s, usurped Feminine dynamic. Let’s put on our pointy hats and join them in spirit. Sister Moon will strengthen the Earth’s psychic field during the eclipse and allow us all to move our beautiful Gaia along Her path. We can help heal a millennia of pain and move on with Her.
Venus is entering Gemini at the same time making it ideal for voicing our feelings on universal respect, the new Planetary Bill of Rights, and the need for genuine communion. If we are out taking part in eclipse events that day, we may want to take a moment to physically call out the words of change we’d like to see in our lives. Meditate on gender-balance and the power of women (and whole men) in our on-going social (r)evolution. Above all, take a moment to appreciate the Divine Feminine.
~ Under the Emotional Microscope ~
This is just a reminder that we’re all still under the effects of a retrograde Saturn in Scorpio. Many of the past, painful relationship issues that came up for us last fall and winter may pop by for a visit again. I suggested everyone stock up on tissues in my last article. Hopefully everyone bought a couple of cases because we’re gonna need ‘em this year.
I think that many people are seeing that what hurt at first turns out to be an opportunity to put some old ghosts to rest. That’s great because we need to be in good, empathic shape for the emotional tidal wave this summer. All three Mercury retrogrades are in Water this year, and if the sloshing around in the Washing Machine of Life doesn’t get us, Mercury’s ‘Emotional Water Slide of Doom’ will.
We’ll all be doing a lot of psychic clearing this year; and if folks haven’t made peace with our last few trips around the Sun, they’ll be swamped in Karma by the end of this one. As the song goes, ‘It’s better to burn out than it is to rust.’ Similarly, Saturn says it’s better to deal with old grief now than repeat the same patterns of avoidance year after year.
~ Feet on the Ground, Head in the Sky ~
This month, I chose ‘Naive Melody, (This must be the Place)’ by The Talking Heads to remind us of the importance of play and discovery. Each day is an opportunity to create a little joy around us; each day is another chance to welcome others to our lovely home under the stars. Let’s toast our wonderful world floating along a galactic river in the endless rhythms of time. 225 million years just to get around once, baby! Woohoo!
Here’s to Big Momma, Gaia, our breathtaking ‘home sweet home’, our very reason for being here, one of the great jewels in the North-western Spiral Arm of the Milky Way. Cheers, everyone!
Oh! And, Merry Beltane!

Sorry for that little oopsie—ever have one of those lives?
Two years ago Greg and I started this website as being a conspiracy website as well as a site to get some channelings, and news about what is happening around our world. We have changed our path in this time to reflect the changes we must make in order to thrive in this world! We have gone from esoteric information mostly to health related issues our Government is pushing on us as poison, to control the population. Conspiracy theory, maybe, but we post evidence from Doctors and other officials that have become keen to their games and have come forward with this information. We have taken many paths to get where we are today!
We have given all of you information to get yourselves healthy, as we believe that getting healthy ourselves is the first step to enlightenment, as it clears your body of the poisons that have been harboring in our air and in our food for some time. If we can become healthy ourselves, our minds will clear, our thoughts clearer, and our bodies and heart will thank us!
As we enter into our 3rd year, we have changed to reflect more action on our part. I have written letters to our local State Senators (Pennsylvania General Assembly) about GMO’s in our food and Fluoride in our water and was directed to our Federal Legislators, which I have yet to contact. In the months coming, I will have forms for you to send to our Federal Legislators (I am working on this as I had written multiple letters and want to consolidate them).
I have also wrote to Trader Joe’s about some of their ingredients in their products. I was directed to Director of Product Management, which I have yet to contact as well and will in the coming days to ask them to change a couple of their ingredients based on my research from multiple Doctors who state that those ingredients are in fact poison and are not safe for human consumption. Another thing I will posting in the coming months is my correspondence with these people who are at the cruck of changing our foods (and not beholden to the FDA and are privately owned).
We will change this world one by one if we have to! If we have to start somewhere, we will start doing what we can do to help all of humanity, and it starts at home! We have to make the changes in order to show the changes, even though Greg and I are disabled, we do what we can do to help all of us live in a better world! That is where it starts, AT HOME! In our own lives we have discarded our own health, and if we can’t help ourselves, we cannot help others!
As it stands, Greg and I are taking a break from the internet (and this means our show as well) now so that we can do our spring cleaning in our home so that we can feel refreshed in our own surroundings! It may take some time as the internet has taken me away from these duties. So go do your spring cleaning, take out the poison from your cupboards and replace it with healthy items for you and your home! Even plant a garden! You will thank yourself!
In ending, I would like to say that this website is about change, it is about working towards your goals and completing them (sometimes this can be a difficult task for me as most of you know I have started projects and didn’t finish them). However, I try to do the best I can with what I have to work with. You should too, get up and grease those bones and do some cleaning, that is what I will be doing in the coming days. I have already replaced all of the items in our home over a year ago, including but not limited to, cleaning products, food, pet food and beauty products, to replace the toxic chemicals that were once in our home. It doesn’t take much, but some money to replace these products (we don’t have a lot of funds and we were able to do this in a few months).
We have to think about our health in these times where we are being fed poison through the FDA’s approval. If you can understand that we have put these people into office, but we CAN get our control back by reading what we eat again and don’t trust one single manufacturer even after you purchase a particular brand over and over again (keep looking at the ingredients no matter what you buy over and over again). If you can’t read the label or it has too many ingredients, put it back is a good rule of thumb if you don’t know what are toxins or not. I will also write an article about the toxins, at some point, and what they do to the human body so you can be more aware.
We are now a website to promote healing to the body and soul and how we can shift into a consciousness of being conscious consumers (in many forms of the word). Once we are conscious of how the food industries are not out to promote health, they are there to make money, all will be in good shape and these companies will seize to exist. If money was out of the equation perhaps they would be more conscious about what they are feeding us, but money still exists, therefore greed overpowers health for humanity.
One thing I learned is that if you go to court to address a mass casualty (and if it was able to be proven that food or whatever the cause, was the culprit), those judges are owned by the Attorney General and whatever they says goes, whether it be a political decision or not (Ex. For the benefit of a political figure getting into office). It always seems to involve the politics of money (and politics itself) and if we can get away from the use of money, greed will turn into compassion (the reason they started their businesses to begin with). Ex. when one goes into the food business, he has a love for good food, when one goes into mechanics, he has a love for technology and fixing things, when one goes into the clothing business, they have a love for clothes and perhaps had a dream of one day clothing the whole world. Now if we can get these business owners to think in this manner once again, money would have to be out of the equation and they would have to find another incentive. Money does not make the world go round, if it did, it would be a lot cheaper.
I hope that all of you know that life is important, we are here for an experience of a lifetime, we are in a theatre acting out in a perpetual play. We are all acting on our parts and all of us have a role to perform. We asked for this, we asked for the physical, we asked to grow our souls, we asked to be here and we all have a role to enact in this insidious orchestrated curtain raiser!
Thank you for following this website and going on our ride with you to act in this theatrical play of a lifetime to give the people back their rights! We appreciate our readers and have spoken with many of you via email, we have heard your sympathies, we have heard your words of compassion, we have heard your words of love and appreciate each and every one of you, so thank you for being here as our readers! You are also a part of this play!
[UPDATE] As an anniversary gift, our website provider offered something we couldn’t refuse. They have placed multiple data centers around the world and our site is now cached on each of them. The next time you connect, it will connect to the server closest to your country, therefore giving you faster load times on our site. We just checked the load from our house and its improved dramatically and we hope it will for you too!
We started our website two years ago on the 26th of March, on that day was the 4th anniversary of Earth Hour, which started in Australia and went international the following year in 2008. Here we are again excited to be observing and celebrating our third Earth hour here at Ready For The Shift. What this states is that for one hour you will turn off your computers, TV’s, tablets, lights as well folks, to show that we are one world under one roof, showing the world, that together we can save our environment. Saving the earth is up to each and every one of us. During this time, you can help by making a difference by cleaning up the oceans, picking up trash around your neighborhood that has fallen out of barrels, planting some seeds inside for an outside garden in the Spring, spread awareness about climate change, consider recycling or reusing, anything you can do to promote the health of the planet and it’s resources; there are many things you can do in this one hour to help save this planet while you have the lights out!
Solutions to tackle environmental challenges are created by Earth Hour Innovators:
Earth Hour is recognising outstanding individuals across our planet that are using their ideas, imagination, inventiveness and entrepreneurial spirit to build a better planet and future for us all.
All over the world, there are passionate and talented people envisioning and inventing scalable solutions to address our planet’s challenges.
Earth Hour Innovators reflects both geographic and discipline diversity. From USA, India, Ecuador to Uganda, these innovators have talents in technology, design, entrepreneurship, engineering, education, and environmentalism.
Our innovators includes an inventor of a radically designed sailboat that cleans oceans; designers of non-polluting, affordable solar powered cookers for developing countries; an environmental activist who reshapes commercial building using principles of green architecture and sustainable upkeep; and an eco-artist who uses waste materials to create a amusement parks for children.
This is what it is all about, we are uniting on a front to show that we care, for one hour we care about our world and each other. Won’t you join us for Earth Hour at 8:30PM where ever you are! And please continue this year round, this is not just for one hour, but a reminder that we have to do this to help save our planet all throughout the year, will you join us and give the earth a breather from everyday hustle and bustle?
“Today you are You
That is truer than true.
There is no one alive
Who is Youer than You.”
– Dr. Seuss
I’d like to stop and interview an Aries. I would, but they’re usually gone by the time I get a microphone and camera set up. All that’s left to interview is a blur and a puff of dust.
We see Aries people all the time, we just don’t recognize them. They’re the ones jogging in the park at 5 am; or, taking art to the next level with vegetable products; other times, they’re streaking across the sky in experimental aircraft. If these pioneers aren’t hanging off the side of a mountain, they’re digging through the dirt in their backyard garden. They’re so outdoorsy, they come equipped with a matching set of camping gear.
It’s true we might find one relaxing at home here and there, but it’s usually after a very busy day. Even then, their domestic activities tend towards tinkering away on home projects or reading books about passionate, epic struggles. I know a few who have a complete home gym just in case anyone’s in the mood for a full-body workout—that mood never strikes me when I’m visiting friends, but it’s perfectly normal for them.
Yeah, I think it’s safe to say that Aries is the most active sign in the Zodiac. I mean, so active they often meet themselves coming the other way; and that’s perfect as this kind of unbridled get-up-and-go is exactly what we need to start off the new year’s growth cycle.
~ The ‘Self’ Revolution ~
First, a little recap, though. There has been so much going on with the stars over the past few years, it’s sometimes hard to keep track of everything.
Uranus is in Aries and has been there since March of 2011. That’s when the massive tidal wave hit Japan and the Middle-east started going through a series of grassroots revolutions. Uranus is all about lighting the fire of change (sometimes with very, violent repercussions) and Aries is, first and foremost, the sign of the fire within—the Self.
In other words, there has been an inner revolution happening all over the world for a couple of years. The very core of our being is being transformed by deep feelings of necessary personal change. This is triggering our social distaste for outmoded ways of being and old-world forms of government. Think of all the differences in us from that spring until now; it’s like we’re completely new people. Indeed, with Uranus in Aries, we are.
The 99% movement is a wonderful example of this novel type of revolution. Remember, both Aries and Uranus are inventors and are always seeking to create the new. We see that it is not just society that needs to change, but the very way we look at society; and that the answer to a progressive, lasting transformation lies within each one of us. This is all very, very fresh thinking.
Uranus will be in Aries all the way up to the spring of 2019. If anyone thinks that all these recent within-you-without-you, radical changes in the world is just a passing phase, think again: “We’re the ones we’ve been waiting for!” is this generation’s rallying cry. These changes are just going to get bigger as the 2010′s play out.
Then, last fall, Saturn crossed over into Scorpio. That’s the sign of sex, death, and rock n’ roll—well, not quite, but it’s close—and Saturn has been putting the kibosh on anything unbalanced in these areas. The amount of emotional trauma that’s coming up for everyone has been staggering. Though it’s been rough, hang in there! This is just Saturn’s way of making room for better things to come.
The ringed ‘Great Teacher’ (also called the ‘Great Limiter’ as the rings work both ways) is now retrograde until summer vacation kicks off. He expects us all to be studying for our next big emotional test until then. Want a sneak preview at the exam?
Question: “What happens when Mercury goes retrograde in Cancer?”
Well, I’m not going to help prepare cheat sheets, but I will give everyone a couple of clues: what is the first organ in the human body to develop? And, what happens to it when we withhold love from others?
June and July are going to be hard for a lot of us (especially, empaths and spiritual seers). There will be a lot of painful, past issues coming up for everyone. So, it may not be a bad idea to get stocked up on tissues as this year is just getting emotionally warmed up.
With all this going on, we can see that the stars of 2013 will have a big effect on people who are wide awake. Saturn is cutting out and mending the psychic past of our lives, and Uranus is laying the groundwork for the next step in the evolution of Humanity. I’d say buckle up for the ride of our lives but isn’t it more fun flying by the seat of our spiritual pants?
~ A New Year and a New Age ~
The Sun rings in the astrological New Year when it enters Aries on March 20th; Venus enters Aries the following day; and the day after that, Mars and Uranus are exactly conjunct at 6 degrees Aries. Foomph! It’s like someone struck a match on a can of Coz-Mic Nitro 3000.
After a long, contemplative winter, we’re not just lighting a candle in the darkness, we’re starting a fire that can be seen from space! I think most people could use a little something to get them moving again and all this explosive, verdant Spring energy will help. Aries will encourage our aspirations—especially, with the fiery, heady Uranus-Mars conjunction—and Venus will ensure will use all this new, found pep for the betterment of everybody.
On top of that, this date marks the first new season of the Age of Aquarius. The ‘spirit of the age’ has been delivered, wrapped in warm clothes, and nourished by Mother Earth throughout the quiet of the winter. Now it opens its eyes for the first time.
I believe, if we look very carefully, we’ll see our future in those eyes. So, look well, it’s time to put our spiritual money where our mouth is. Now would be the perfect time to start living the positive changes we’d like to see in the world. The Aquarian Age is about freedom—for everyone. It is about the connection between ALL of us, not just the 1%, the Eye in the Triangle, or people with good hair.
(*note: there is a lot of debate about exactly when the chronological date of the Age of Aquarius occurs. I am not talking about that scientific date; I’m talking about the one that humanity came to a consensus on in the last couple of decades: December 21st, 2012. From my own studies on the Precession of the Equinoxes, I just happen to agree with it. There’s room for all kinds of views, though, so to each their own.)
~ Full Moon, March 27th – Hang onto yer Butts! ~
The Moon is full in Libra this month and normally this would be a time of balance and beauty; however, with the Sun, Venus, Mars, and Uranus all conjunct in an Aries’ sky (at 8 degrees) at the same time, I’d say it’s more about howling at the moon.
Get out and let that Light shine! Put on your best chapeau, throw on ‘Staying Alive’ by the Bee Gees, and strut. Maybe sign a few autographs.
It’s the start of a whole new life cycle here in the West with trees budding and green leaves popping out everywhere! Why not dress ourselves in the same rejuvenating, carefree spirit? Even more so, it is the beginning of a new psychic year in our lives. It’s time to be who we think we are the rest of the year.
Try to take it easy, though; with a justice-oriented Moon, and a retrograde Saturn passing through Scorpio, we need to be careful of being too critical of ourselves this month.

I saved the best for last… *drum roll, please* …Pluto goes retrograde on April 12th!
Everyone remember our Spirit Guardian, Pluto? The one that won’t stand for anything blocking our Soul’s growth and development? He moved into the earth sign of Capricorn back in 2008 and then proceeded to dig us all up, plant us in a new pot, and move us to a more harmonious part of the Gaian garden. Wheeee!
Oh, and He emptied out our bank accounts just for fun. It’s hard to forget that part, isn’t it? I still haven’t found all the money I was saving for retirement, or the home I used to live in. Can you?
Well, we get a break from all that “for-our-own-good” enlightenment he’s been fertilizing us with so we can review our spiritual evolution over the last half decade. Pluto won’t go direct again until the beginning of Fall. That means we can take our time and really mull it over because we have a couple of seasons to put together what it all meant.
I suggest everyone take the opportunity to check out their own gardens; perhaps, pay special attention to how we’ve been arranging it over the last few years. Notice anything unusual in the lay of the land? All that hard work we did to get it just so?
I thought so. I think for a lot of us lately, it’s been one of those ‘Karate Kid’, Mr. Miyagi moments when we get to the point of being so p.o.’d at life, we’d rather shake our fists at the heavens and quit; and yet, it turns out we’ve been mastering Life skills this whole time.
The place we find ourselves in now is about taking over the spiritual gardening for ourselves. The reason everything has been so drastic over the last few years is because we just learned we can’t grow a society in Illuminati bullshit. That was the period when Pluto went through Sagittarius from 1995 until 2008; that was when we learned about Truth. By now, we all know that NWO crapola makes good manure, but it hardly produces anything worthwhile—not unless we like eating shit.
No one wants that.
Now is the time to figure out what’s really tasty, nutritious, and good for us; and what’s been passing itself off as the same. (*Hint – we can usually tell by its ridiculously, long shelf life and colorful sales slogans. Got milk? I dunno. Got allergies?) It’s time to live a fabulous, sacred life again. We don’t need Big Daddy to decide what grows in our garden anymore—we are all One, what’s good for everyone is good for us and that’s what should grow there, in my opinion.
I wish you well in your own cosmic Pepsi-taste challenge this month as the dying ‘New World Order’ trots out its latest, sorry system upgrade, the ‘Matrix 9.0′—is it live, or is it, Memorex?—and all that Hollywood hype.
We just need to remember that real life doesn’t come with price tags and we’ll be fine.
~ Welcome to your Life ~
The song I thought encapsulated this month is, ‘Everybody Wants To Rule The World’ by Tears For Fears. Some people say that the moment never lasts but it’s usually said by those who have a monopoly on our planetary resources, the people who are trying to farm our time; for us simple, country folk, living in the moment is just fine. Especially if there is a lot of fresh air and nature involved.
Here’s hoping you’re one of the latter.

** As a stargazer, the months and years play out differently for me; well, for most witches and shaman, really. So, I recognize each month—or, moon-th—as starting between the 19th and the 23rd of each standard Julian calender month. When I talk about something happening in the ‘month of Aries’, I mean the last week or so of March and the first few weeks of April.
The same goes for how I measure a year. As an occultist, I see the year starting in Aries during our western spring. Though there is some debate on when the astrological New Year actually begins with some people saying it starts in Virgo (I highly suspect this), some saying it starts on Samhain, and still others saying it starts on the Winter Solstice of Capricorn, it doesn’t start at midnight on New Year’s Eve for me. Marking the new year on a cold, barren January night with a huge drunken feast is just another old Babylonian sorcerer’s trick to get people to do the wrong things at the wrong time. This way folks end up so confused, penniless, irritated, squabbling, and otherwise kept so disjointed and busy, they lose their ability to see who’s really pulling the strings of power.
Since I got a comment on our blog yesterday saying that said we don’t know the history of vaccines and that we are giving ill advice, I found it pertinent to show you what I have found from Doctors who are against vaccinations and provide their knowledge in the subject. Typically we post comments if they are negative in nature, but in this case, this person was rude and name called and the rule states that if you disagree, provide links to prove your disagreement without being rude and I will post your comment. This comment was not constructive so it was not approved.
I don’t believe we are giving ill advice as it has been proven time and time again that vaccines are poisons to our bodies, plus they came about to control the population as well.
Quoted from an article as to what Mercury poisoning does to the human body:
Methylmercury, the most easily absorbed form of mercury, is a very potent neurotoxin that interferes with brain development. Once in the brain, it interferes with nerve cell differentiation and cell division by binding DNA and RNA. It can cause nerve cell death and scarring in selected areas of the brain (Shea, Perry, & Shah, 2004). With methylmercury exposure, paresthesia is the first and mildest symptom observed, where a tingling or numbness is felt in the hands, arms, legs, or feet, but can also occur in other parts of the body. In the case of methylmercury poisoning, this numbness is the first sign of damage to the nervous system (Clarkson & Magos, 2006). Other symptoms that may follow a higher dose of methylmercury poisoning are ataxia (stumbling or clumsy gait) and generalized weakness. Higher doses of methylmercury poisoning may lead to dysarthria, loss of vision and hearing, tremor, and finally, coma and death (Shea et al., 2004). To date, these more severe symptoms have only been observed in people who consumed fish that were contaminated directly by methylmercury from anthropogenic sources, not from methylmercury that accumulated through the natural methylation process (Clarkson & Magos, 2006). (Reference from here: http://www.csa.com/discoveryguides/mercury/review4.php)
Studies have shown that Mercury isn’t ONLY in our fish products, but in vaccinations and our water as well as other things, I am sure.
Also, the chances are about 15 times greater that measles will be contracted by those vaccinated against them, than by those who are not, for instance. This is the case with most, if not all, vaccines.
Here is an extensive article with excellent research done by the author, who focuses directly on vaccinations and how it affects your health.
Look at how vaccinations were pushed on us through the years.
“The greatest threat of childhood diseases lies in the dangerous and ineffectual efforts made to prevent them through mass immunization…..There is no convincing scientific evidence that mass inoculations can be credited with eliminating any childhood disease.”–Dr Robert Mendelsohn MD (Reference: http://www.whale.to/b/hoax1.html)
Please watch this lecture (it is over an hour long). It is by a Doctor who is talking about the history of vaccinations and it’s detriment to human health. Greg and I found this to be one of the most important videos on vaccinations and it’s risks.
An updated interview with Dr. David Ayoub by a young lady who was doing a school project and also has a website that the students post on about Conspiracy Theories at http://www.emetaheret.org.il/.
I hope this helps to know that vaccination formularies have changed over the years. For instance, there is an MMRII vaccine now. Not the same vaccine we got as children. My husband had that vaccine in the 1960′s and he got both Measles and Mumps, so the vaccine got him extremely sick at 7 or 8 years old and he was hospitalized. Please keep you and your families healthy by NOT vaccinating and know your rights! We want all of you to be alive for a long time.
2. National Security Study Memorandum, also called NSSM 200, written in 1974 from Henry Kissinger to Richard Nixon. (Talks about population control for the whole world.) http://www.hli.org/files/NSSM%20200.pdf.
I am going to make it easy for people to become aware. A friend of mine asked me to send him links on all of the subjects we were talking about on the phone for 4 hours. So I went to my database of credible links and sent him everything he needs to know, or at least to get started on being in the know of what is going on in this world and really what is going on.
Here is what I sent my friend so that he too can be awake as well as yourselves!
Okay on to GMO’s (Genetically Modified Organisms). Monsanto is the company that is producing these GMO’s in our food and they are ruthless. Many farmers lost their land to Monsanto due to their company driving by their farms, having grains fall out of the back of the truck (wink, wink) and WHALA, they now own that farm they dropped their seeds on! And yes it is that simple.
Farmer after farmer have committed suicide because the GMO’s made their crops fail, especially in India, because their cotton crops failed and they no longer could grow because the bowl weevils (a bug pest) ate their crops and they never grew back due to the cotton becoming resistant to the pesticide and they didn’t have funds to get more seeds or grow a whole field of cotton (and Yes our cotton is GMO too, not just our food). The farmers killed themselves because in India their debt passes onto their family unless they are dead. The foods as well as cotton and some coffee beans as well as some cocoa is GMO as well as the extensive lists provided in the links below. They have now become Round Up (Pesticide) Resistant as well as Monsanto taking their farms one by one. You see if a seed is patented, which they are with Monsanto company, they own all rights to those seeds. So if those seeds fall onto your farm, you now have their patented seeds on your farm and legally they can take your farm.
I thought these articles explained it very well and I am sure this will help you shop for better food.
In case you were going to start a garden at some point, here is a link Greg posted on our Facebook page. They are a list of companies that have JUST been bought by Monsanto and will now be GMO, so do not buy these seeds if you grow your own garden.
And a Chicken Nugget is made with Pink Slime Vs Healthy Chicken that aren’t injected with hormones or animals that eat GMO’s. This experiment was done by Jamie Oliver (Chef and Food Revolutionist). However it was a failure as the kids didn’t care what it was made from, just that it looked the same as McDonalds. But is that really a failure? Perhaps not, because they didn’t know the difference between the two. So they won’t know they are eating healthy or not, but it is our jobs as parents, friends, and loved ones who have children to know that you can ban eating out and make these unhealthy foods, healthy again. http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_detailpage&v=S9B7im8aQjo
Here is another picture to depict that vaccines can do extreme harm.
I know this is a lot of information, but just know, the more you know, the more you are empowered with taking charge of your own health. It’s important to be healthy and if you don’t take care of yourselves for yourselves, no one else will.
So in ending,
Do not get your vaccinations as you are putting poison into your bodies and possibly causing ailments that you wouldn’t have otherwise.
Do not eat GMO’s and consistently read the labels for GMO ingredients.
Keep up to date with new GMO foods being processed as to avoid them.
Eat Organic, if you can find a store that focuses on living healthy, such as Trader Joe’s. (National chain markets do not have a lot of organic foods, therefore if they do have any, they are overpriced. For instance, you should not pay more than .79 cents for an apple.)
Avoid rGBH in dairy, it is poisonous as you are basically drinking puss from the bacteria that produces from the cows becoming anti-biotic resistant now and producing infection, which you are drinking.
Buy BPA free plastics.
Buy Grass fed meat, non-GMO fed (No corn, soy, or wheat)
Buy humanely treated chicken or cow meat. (usually it will say on the package)
Avoid eating out (unless organic restaurant) as you may be eating Meat Glue or Pink Slime.
Try to grow your own garden, it’s fun and fairly easy with a lot of elbow grease.
I hope this helps you all and I know it is a lot of information, but you need to know.
