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.

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.

Cosmic Chronicle – March 2012

Cosmic ChronicleAs the days grow longer, we instinctively look forward to welcoming spring with a surge of hope, renewal, and vibrant energy.  But, since January 23, many have experienced a firm cosmic thumb on the top of their head, appearing to weigh them down with confusion, uncertainty, lethargy, and self-doubts. And others have felt the direct opposite. This frustrating and conflicting phenomenon happens every two years, when Mars goes into retrograde motion.  The good news is; Mars, ruler of energy, sex, aggression and action, will go direct on April 13.  It definitely hasn’t helped that Mars has been in retrograde in the most critical, perfection driven, and detail oriented sign of the zodiac, Virgo. The steroid powered roller coaster ride that we’ve been on has found many spinning their wheels, and getting nowhere, fast!

Although March began with challenges, there is an extraordinary silver lining coming our way as we approach the week of March 12. Mars will be joined in a cosmic line-up that is going to be an energy packed, focused and positively opportunistic Grand Trine starring; Jupiter, Neptune, Venus and Pluto, which will continue through March 23.

This will be an excellent time to hit the casino, start new projects, correct mistakes, and get motivated in a positive direction. Many will uncover unexpected financial opportunities, renewed passions, and an emerging readiness to accept personal and spiritual growth. We can consider this an honest beginning as we continue to transition from the darkness into the light.

The Full Moon will be on March 8, in the earth sign of Virgo. Daylight Savings Time will resume on Sunday, March 11. And, Mercury will go into retrograde motion on March 12 – April 4 in the fire sign of Aries. We’ll celebrate St. Patrick’s Day on March 17, and the Spring Equinox, which is also the first day of spring, will officially arrive on March 20. The Sun will also enter the fire sign of Aries on March 20, and the New Moon will be in Aries on March 22.

Now, I didn’t say that there wouldn’t be a few bumps in the cosmic road this month.  A Mercury Retrograde always messes up communication and commerce, but, when it’s stationed in Aries, we can expect impulsive, illogical, short-tempered outbursts. Road rage, domestic violence, and impatience can unexpectedly present themselves. You may hear people say, “I haven’t got a clue what got into me?” And, you will be able to respond, “Nothing trivial, Mercury is retrograde in Aries, you’ll be yourself again after April 4.”

When we get past this month, we will feel much more like ourselves, with positive energy and renewed determination to move forward in our future. We may even begin to see our wishes manifest.

Cosmic Chronicle – Feb 2012

Cosmic ChronicleWhen the Moon is in the Seventh House, and Jupiter aligns with Mars

Then peace shall guide the planets, and love will steer the stars

This is the dawning of the Age of Aquarius…

Aquarius/Let the Sunshine In, The 5th Dimension, 1967

As entertaining as the Broadway musical “Hair” was; it was produced long before the actual Age of Aquarius, which has absolutely nothing to do with the Moon being in the Seventh House, and much less to do with Jupiter aligning with Mars!

The Grand Cycle consists of twelve constellations, which rotates from one respective Zodiac sign to the other requiring approximately 2,000 years. There has been tremendous debate about when we made our entrance into the Aquarian Age, or Age of Light.  Some argue that it was 1972, while others believe that it was 1987. Then, there are many who emphatically believe that the Great Shift will begin at the winter Solstice on December 21, 2012.  

Whatever one chooses to believe, Astronomers have indisputable evidence that between the years of 1998-2001, the Sun rotated on its axis and entered the region of space known as the “photon band,” which is filled with higher light frequencies radiating out from the Galactic Center. That’s all well and good, but, what does it mean? Simply put; this intense light source will enlighten anything that falls in its path, expanding consciousness on every level for the next 2,000 years. Needless to say, there is as much controversy about the photon band as there has been about the timing of each Age!

Typically, I try very hard to omit astrological jargon and get straight to the point, after all, what is, is! But, this is one of those times when a crash course is needed to fully understand where we were, why, and where we are heading. So please, follow along with me on a Star-Trek journey through our Twilight Zone!

Planets move through time and space, from one zodiac sign to another, at different warp speeds. The further out into the galaxy a planet is, the longer it takes to change and influence the zodiac signs. For instance; The Moon changes zodiac signs every two and a half days. The Earth changes zodiac signs every thirty days. Venus and Mercury are small, fast moving planets, and they move through a zodiac sign every month. Mars will move through a zodiac sign approximate every month and a half, whereas, Jupiter spends a year doing the same thing.

Saturn, the task master, moves through a zodiac sign every 29 years. Chiron is the relatively “new kid on the block,” his job is to greatly influence our Spiritual evolution with his slow, deliberate transit through a zodiac sign every 50 years. The heavy hitting outer planets; Uranus, Neptune and Pluto, are the planetary trinity who give us our prophetic insights. Uranus revolves around the Sun once every 84 years, while Neptune makes his presence known for 165 years. The celestial line-up would not be complete without Pluto, who makes his influential journey through the solar system in 248 years.  

This is where we will begin our journey which will bring us to where we are today, at the Uranus-Aries Point, the North Node representing the pathway to Spirit.

“Why is this gibberish important?” Uranus rules light and electricity; and is an expert at turning things upside down, very quickly! Earth got a taste of “coming attractions” when it experienced a magnetic pole shift of its electrical energy May 28, 2010 – January 8, 2012.  Think back, what transpired either personally or globally during that time frame?

Uranus rules Aquarius, Neptune rules Pisces, and, Pluto rules Scorpio, their soul directed, unpredictable, and eccentric influence will be felt through 2025. Thankfully, it will give us plenty of time to find a good therapist!

The assertive warrior Mars rules the fire sign of Aries. It will continue in the retrograde motion it started on January 23 – April 13. Saturn is the ruler of earth sign, Capricorn, and he went into retrograde motion on the Full Moon, February 7, going back into direct motion on June 25.  Until mid-April, these two retrogrades have put us into a very vulnerable position, emotionally, and rationally. Beginning a new business, signing important papers, making major purchases, and decisions, etc. is ill advised until after mid-April.

Without exception, over the next 14 years, there isn’t a soul on Earth who will not be affected by a seemingly arbitrary energy force that is totally beyond our expectations or control.

We’ve all heard the warnings of the impending apocalypse, dooms day, or end of time. When in reality, the coming winter solstice will officially conclude a long era of a falsely guided belief system, and replace it with truth, light and an elevated spiritual consciousness.  “If it ain’t broke don’t fix it,” will be heard echoing around the world as December, 2012 draws near.  It may help to know that the transformation will not happen overnight, it will continue through 2038.

The good news is; humans will have 2,000 years to accept the transition into the Age of Light, either willingly or kicking and screaming! In which case, I would strongly suggest purchasing a large quantity of Tylenol!

February’s notable calendar continues with Valentine’s Day on Wednesday, the 14th, with the Sun entering the water sign of Pisces on the 19th. Then, we round things out with the New Moon, in Pisces, on the 21st

“The Ladies’ Privilege” is a popular law which dated back when relationships between the sexes were more rigid and formal. It was passed by a Scottish Act of Parliament in the 13th century, and later became an English Common Law in 1606. The origin of a marriage proposal law which prevented men from refusing the proposal is said to have originated in Ireland. The legend is that St Bridget met with St Patrick one day and complained that women did not have the right to propose marriage. Upon hearing this complaint, and being a reasonable man, St Patrick offered the opportunity for women to propose marriage one day, every seven years. However, being a woman of sound wit, St Bridget bargained him down to one day every fourth year, on February 29th. And so it was.
