Cosmic Chronicle – July 2012

newsletter - July 2012Challenging is a good word to describe the last six months. Our challenges actually began in 2010, and escalated to fever pitch when the planet of change, Uranus, settled in the fire sign, Aries, on March 11, 2011, where it will remain until May 15, 2018 when it will move into Taurus. Since the beginning, we have been on an unmerciful roller coaster ride filled with unexpected chaos, confusion and change!

July 4 will usher in a positive and surprisingly optimistic energy during the American Independence Day celebrations, curtsey of a Capricorn Full Moon, July 3. Uranus will go retrograde July 13 – December 13 in Aries. And, Mercury will go retrograde July 14 – August 8 in Leo. The pace will appear to slow, and we will finally have some time for a much needed time-out. Inner reflection and examination of our future direction will be the major theme during this period. As well as completing projects that have been put on the back-burner for so long, i.e., cupboards, closets, attics, basements and garages! During this Mercury Retrograde, old friends, long lost relatives, and even those who have passed-on could suddenly contact us. A return of past relationships is the focus for this unusual Mercury Retrograde.

Much emphasis has been put on a personal and collective spiritual awakening this year, but what does it mean? During the age of darkness and materialism, we were taught that the term spiritual meant core religious beliefs. And, for the last 168 years that conditioned definition was true. However, we are realizing now that whatever acts as our inner support system and directs us to our greatest potential of awareness is truly our core spiritual self. We are evolving into spiritual beings with a broader perspective of being part of something far greater than ourselves. On a reflective note, and given recent events, it appears that organized religions were much more dogmatically confident, and profitable, when their flocks revolved and lived in unquestioned faith and trust.

Although there are still bumps in the cosmic road ahead, our incredible journey is far from over, especially as we move into mid-month, then all hell will break loose again! But, just as quickly as it began, we will comfortably and securely end the month with a bright New Moon in Cancer on July 19, and the Sun will enter the fire sign, Leo, July 22.

August will come in with a much more positive energy as Neptune, Pluto and Uranus begin to mellow their cosmic flair-ups. A keen sense of awareness will help us to recognize any unexpected opportunities which could present themselves and ignite our ambition, drive, and passions in the direction we have chosen. So, stay tuned as we continue to move forward, onward and upward together.

Beyond Time & Space

Is there a difference between a Psychic and a Medium? What is a premonition? What is precognition? What does it mean to be a sensitive? Can someone be mentally lucid and have extrasensory perception?

The term psychic is derived from the Greek word psychiokos which means soul. The psychic has developed an attunement with vibrations from the mind and body. A psychic has learned to trust the knowledge and information which comes through to him/her on the earthly plane; while the Spiritualist medium receives information from the spirit world. One may have the sensitivity to receive both psychic and spiritual information. Both the psychic and the medium may receive information consciously, or in a trance state.

The sixth sense or, extrasensory perception applies to all of us, in one or more ways. Clairsentience is the psychic ability to perceive or sense information by sight, sound, smell, tastes, emotions and physical sensations. Many mediums receive their information by psychically sensing it, without knowing that they’re doing it. Terms we are much more familiar with are; Clairvoyance, clear seeing and Clairaudience, clear hearing. Clairhambience, clear tasting, which is not as common as Clairvoyance and Clairaudience. And, the last two sensitivities are Clairalience, clear smelling, and Clairgustance, which is smells or odors from another dimension.

Have you ever been awakened from a sound sleep with a sense of foreboding; you just knew in your heart of hearts that something was very wrong? Since the feeling wasn’t specific, it was a premonition. Precognition contains specifics; most commonly time, place and/or person. Clairvoyance and precognition go hand in hand.

For many, it appears that mankind has abandoned all rational and logical intellect, in its quest to evolve to a higher vibration level and collective consciousness. And for many, replacing old beliefs and ideology for a new age of truth, light, humanitarian equality and sexual duality is completely insane. However, that time is upon us, and there is no turning back.

The mysteries of evolution go as far back as time itself, bringing us to this precise moment in time and space. As time progresses, we will each find our path to enlightenment and truth; in our own way, and in our own time. The journey isn’t easy, and many will learn some very hard lessons along the way. But, trial and error has always been an integral part of the evolutionary cycle we call life.

Never Too Late

                                                                

 Bread Lines It is never too late to become what you might          have been.                                                                   

George Eliot

What happens to a society, and the collective human psyche, when its source of socioeconomic stability, security, self-confidence, cultural identity, self-worth, and self-respect downsizes, shuts its doors, or relocates? The pink slip said, “Nothing personal. In the process of corporate restructuring, your position has been permanently eliminated.”

The United States began to experience economic erosion in March 2001. States which depended heavily on industry were hardest hit. For the first time since the Great Depression, the U.S. succumbed to an Employers Market. The economy continued to spiral downward, and by 2004 there were 403,300 unemployed Americans. And, 11,000 jobs were lost per day in 2007. Following the Stock Market crashed on October 6, 2008 there were 2.4 Million unemployed or underemployed, uninsured, displaced, disgruntled and impatient adults in the U.S.  But, bottom had not hit, yet. In 2010 the number of unemployed in the U.S. was 7.9 Million, and in 2011 there were 10.5 Million adults actively looking for work, with an estimated 3 Million who had given up their search. The only difference between the Great Depression and the Great Recession were Government bread lines, soup kitchens, and gas stamps! The U.S. economic disaster also had a domino effect which reached globally.

With the end of the Great Depression and WWII, from 1946-1964, there were 76 Million recorded births in the United States; dubbed appropriately the Baby Boomer Generation. The industrialized economy flourished, and so did a full realization of the American Dream. “The traditional social ideals of the United States, such as equality, democracy, and material prosperity.” Wikipedia  

However, throughout the years the United States endured a significant timeline of economic recessions. Stagflation was a cold hard reality for the working poor and middle class. Many worked several jobs in an effort to bring home a livable wage. In 1996, businesses began to restructure and downsize its massive labor force. Baby Boomers were “encouraged” to take early retirement. There was a time when early retirement was part of the “American Dream,” when workers were confident that their long accrued pension benefits and Social Security/Medicare benefits would sufficiently support them in their retirement years.

Millions of aging Baby Boomers, on the fringe of retirement eligibility, not only lost their jobs, but, an early retirement quickly saw savings, pensions, and 401k retirement funds wiped out, largely due to the stock market crash, and out of pocket healthcare expenses. Over 3 million high paying jobs were lost forever in the economic crash. Youthful, inexperienced, college graduates quickly became target employees to replace the aging, stable and experienced workforce. In an attempt to justify replacing one workforce with another, Labor economists theorized that the U.S would become globally competitive with a younger, fresh, more flexible workforce. But, economically, and in truth, youth presented fewer chronic health issues, and they could begin their career at a much lower starting wage than the workforce they were replacing.    

Workers that opted for early retirement quickly faced the cold hard fact that they couldn’t afford to live on their depleted retirement assets.  Not wanting to become a burden on family or society, they were forced into long unemployment lines, competing for jobs with people half their age. Baby Boomers also discovered that the federally mandated Age Discrimination in Employment Act of `1967 only looked good on paper, and sounded better in theory. The working poor and middle class population resigned themselves to the harsh reality that retirement would never be part of their long range plans, or their vocabulary.

The country was facing a recession domino effect: Long term unemployment (over six months), and long-term under-employment creates; a loss of human dignity and self-worth. And, the results are; financial defaults, wage garnishments, foreclosures and bankruptcy. But, the psychological residual effects go much deeper; prolonged stress, anxiety, insomnia, shame, embarrassment, self-imposed isolation, anti-social behavior, estrangement, domestic violence, child abuse, divorce, substance abuse, despair, chronic mental and/or physical illness, despondency, clinical depression, and suicide.

There’s always been economic class divisions, as William Wells Newell’s children’s nursery rhyme showed in 1883; “Rich man, Poor man, Beggar-man, Thief, Doctor, Lawyer, Indian chief.” The Deep Recession of 2008 stuck a knife in that division and twisted the blade. The affluent 1.2% of the American population hurled brutal, demeaning accusations at the less fortunate 99.8%. “If the whiners really wanted to work, there’s work!” “Unemployment benefits are an entitlement crutch!” And, the less fortunate silently hung their heads and wondered if the affluent was telling their children that they could no longer afford lights, water, heat, housing, food, transportation, healthcare, Thanksgiving, or Christmas?

It took ten long years for the United States to functionally recover from the Great Depression. Manual labor and hard work brought the country back, but, this time, the Government was calling for a “better educated workforce.” In a catch-22 situation, people of all ages, backgrounds, and experience took a major chance and went back to school in order to compete in the “new” workforce. An education requires time, and unemployment benefits ran out long before the upgraded, new workforce was ready. The disheartening and scary reality was; there were no guarantees for gainful employment after completion, just a huge Government Student Loan debt.

Even more disheartening was the fact that throughout the transition, employers discovered that they could reach their bottom line, and profit, with far less employees and overhead. Full time employment was replaced with part-time positions, thus ending traditional benefit packages. And, Medical, IT and Engineering were the areas that held the greatest promise for attaining gainful employment.

People with 20+ years of experience and a Bachelor’s Degree in Business were forced to go back to college, and upgrade in one of those three areas. If they attain work after graduation, they will work the rest of their lives. This is a fact of life. They may not have youth, but, they have determination, perseverance, dedication, and “old school” work ethic which will clearly set them apart as an invaluable contribution and asset in the new workforce.

Renaissance Over Coffee

Energy ExplosionThe darkest hour is just before the dawn.

Thomas Fuller, 1650

Throughout history there have been Renaissance periods; but not before forcing a mass human migration through a transitional prerequisite of uncertainty, conflict, confusion and upheaval. The first recorded Renaissance era was 1399-1400, during which time, the Church firmly held dominance over medieval society. And, during that period, the stage was set for the cataclysmic upheaval humanity is experiencing today. However, some significant historical bridges had to be crossed before mankind could begin righting the wrongs, which began when the aristocratic empires were overthrown in 1891-1892.  

In light of recent world events, many are wondering, “Is there really something to this? Are we approaching the end of the world?” Well, pour a cup of coffee, sit down, and we’ll talk about it…

An Apocalypse (Greek: Lifting of the veil or revelation) is a disclosure of something hidden from the majority of mankind in an era dominated by falsehood and misconception, i.e. the veil to be lifted. – Wikipedia

Parables hold insightful and prophetic messages. One such parable is; “Many are called, but few are chosen.” Matthew 22:14. Of course, for those that know the Bible, that statement was taken from the Parable of the Wedding Feast, but the meaning definitely applies to The Great Shift of Human Consciousness. “He who has ears, let him hear” but, few will respond because they are too busy with their own worldly pursuits.” “Those that do respond are the few who are truly hearing with their spiritual ears,” because, “the creation and the conscience are within us.” “How do we know if we are among the few that have ears to hear? By responding to the call.” Philippians 1:6.

If we follow the thread from past events, it will lead us to our reality today. The Mayan Factor was unheard of, and non-existent, at the dawn of the first Harmonic Convergence, August 16-17, 1987. Astrologers were unaware of the Mayan prophecies, but, they couldn’t dispel the unusual planetary and zodiac placements. With Jupiter in Aries, the global community was called to awaken and hear the Higher Self. Gate Keepers, Guides, Teachers, and Messengers were summoned by the portal (or grand trine) of fire; Jupiter held firmly in Aries. Mercury, Venus, Mars and the Sun were in Leo. And, Saturn and Uranus were in Sagittarius.  Anyone with significant fire in their natal charts was miraculously affected by that planetary energy surge. Scientists scoffed at Tony Shearer and Jose’ Arguelles for their prophetic predictions regarding the Harmonic Convergence. But, Astronomers’ took a different view of the planetary event.  The planet was given a major wake-up call to All That Is, and the New Age Revolution began.

June 18-19, 2007, ushered in another portal of fire (grand trine) which dwarfed the first Harmonic Convergence. In 1987, Saturn and Uranus moved through Sagittarius, creating global awareness to a higher energy frequency and consciousness. If humanity missed the call in 1987, it was certainly rattled in 2007.  An uneasy panic spread, and Pluto, (the revealer), was demoted from its astronomical stature, with the belief that if it was taken out of the solar system’s equation its power and influence over our affairs would no longer affect us. That premise didn’t work, because, the powerful affect that Pluto has on the Earth’s core is monumental. It can set-off catastrophic earthquakes, tidal waves, hurricanes, tornadoes, and blizzards. It also has the power to unhinge the emotional and  spiritual fabric that humans have adopted within their belief systems. Uranus is belligerently  disruptive in nature, and manifests changes for both mankind and the Earth, very quickly. Therefore, the 2007 grand trine of fire greatly expanded the 1987 portal.

By July 17-18, 2010, the Mayan Calendar, its prophecies, the 26,000 year long count, and the cosmic pyramid which is directing the shift to unity consciousness were well known. The Consciousness Convergence, 2010, was described as the beginning of a process toward deepened Unity Consciousness that will never stop. An accurate analogy would be the quantum leap the European Renaissance  took into industrialism. The difference is that this Renaissance is not meant for separate individuals, but, will eventually engulf all of humanity.

Resistance to change has been, and will continue to be, met by forces of influential hierarchy that are ego-based, and threatened; digging in to preserve the old world thought processes and power. Cynicism, indifference, fear-mongering, and apathy have become manipulative defense ploys, which will continue through 2038, when the great shift of human consciousness will be completed and the dawn of the Golden Age will be fully realized.
