Grandmother Spider

Grandmother Spider by Susan Boulet

The Full Moon in Capricorn July 1st 2015 calls us into deeper alignment with the Earth and all her rhythms, cycles, and ancient wisdom. This is a day for the making of dream catchers, the whispering of prayers, the telling of old tales, and honoring of ancestors. We are reminded of the way that gravity and terra firma supports us – can just as easily take away from us as sustain us.

Earth and native magic are still alive in the world yet today we must work harder than before to connect with them, as we must also simplify and humble ourselves before the spirits and creatures of nature who have experienced as deep a betrayal at our hands as we have at the hands of our  supposed “caretakers”. I think of Grandmother Spider during this moon, who in Cherokee, Choctaw and other traditions was known as the Weaver of the Web of Life. She brought people the sun and fire, taught them pottery, weaving and ceremonial blessings. Her spider’s web represented language, connectivity, creativity, infinity, and the moving patterns that we call time.

P1020602We have so much to learn from the life around us if we would but stop and observe rather than immediately set to destroy whatever scares us or seems to stand in our way. This spider stopped me in my tracks recently, reminding me of the mysteries of creation and what kinds of things can be cultivated in the darkness whether for negative or positive ends. All of us weave webs with our thoughts, words, and actions that trap, enchant, or illuminate in some way. Let’s choose wisely.

Full Moon in Capricorn 2015

As I type a Full Moon at 9 degrees Capricorn conjunct Pluto on July 1st ripens, opposite Mars in Cancer, square the nodal axis of Aries and Libra. This combination could easily resemble the cosmic recipe for corporate mayhem and emotional rape, but the spectacular Jupiter Venus conjunction in Leo has given us a little something pleasant to look forward to – even if only the ability itself to “look on the bright side”. I sat down a few times during the past week trying to figure out what to say about any of this and for the most part found myself speechless. There is no doubt about it, tonight is a special night.

The Full Moon in Capricorn’s conjunction with Pluto reveals an obsession with power and brings about a total heightening of environmental and somatic awareness. The motivations of others become very obvious under this influence, so if one chooses to hide their true motives at this it will likely be under the guise of some outrageously far-out thing that has next to nothing to do with what’s really going on. Any symptoms of protest in our bodies are trying to relay important information to us that should not be ignored but valued as barometers of what is wrong and right for us physically, mentally, and emotionally.

Maybe this all sounds too somber and serious, but Capricorn is not without humor and wit. This higher side of this sign just wants us to recognize what we’re dealing with and get real about it. We need to be connected with purpose, doing something that is at least meaningful to ourselves, and not leave the activities of our minds and hands to the “devil”.

In America, what a dear friend calls “farse of July” approaches, the Trans-Pacific Partnership  (TPP) is close to passing, Syria suffers the aftermath of yet more bombs approved by Obama while people have cheered week long for gay marriage rights. It’s not that anyone should be opposed to gay marriage but could the hype around it be another mere experiment in human psychology which will create further backlash for both gays and anyone out there who believes in the existence of their so-called constitutional rights? Does anyone notice how ironic the timing of all of this is?

father-timeCapricorn’s ruling planet Saturn, also known as Old Father Time is retrograde at the 29th aka anaretic degree of Scorpio. Industrial sludge is certainly rising to the surface of collective consciousness. Interestingly enough, I came across this posted article today which involves a subtle yet complete shifting of the universal clock at midnight. We are reminded time and time again that we don’t really have an accurate compass, clock or anything to “hold onto” in this world. We can only trust the wisdom in our hearts to guide us through the darkness, chaos, and illusions of our corporeal lives, and truth be told, that’s not a bad thing at all.

There is a second full moon at the end of this month – a Blue Moon in Aquarius on July 31st, coinciding with Lughnasadh, the astronomical midpoint between the Summer Solstice and Autumn Equinox. Hopefully we will see some social innovations to the plethora of old world problems currently being amplified, digitized, and sold as new.

Big corporations will inevitably (eventually) collapse, attempting to take us all down with them in their downward spiral to hell. We should not hold our breath waiting for this, but get on with the business of our lives as best we can, with what we have, with what we know to be true.

“The wisdom of the heart is really…the connection to your authentic power, to that source of realness and genuineness that you have inside.” – Howard Martin

America’s “Karmic” Returns

4752245162_4391246_f260_xlargeAmerica is not only nearing its 239th anniversary and Solar Return in July but more significantly, it is facing its first Pluto Return as a so-called Democracy, to occur in 2022. Furthermore we are approaching the fourth of five hits of Pluto’s opposition to the US Sun 13 degrees of Cancer which has been in effect since 2014 until the end of 2015. The first was March 13 2014, the second May 17, 2014, the third into the new year January 5, 2015, the fourth will be August 15, 2015 and the fifth November 1, 2015. Meanwhile Saturn has dipped back into Scorpio, June 14th until September 17th, revisiting its mutual reception with Pluto in Capricorn. Ready or not here come America’s karmic returns.

Pluto is sometimes referred to as the Hand of God that swoops down and changes everything it touches, often in a destructive manner that eventually leads to rebirth and creativity. Indeed the US financial markets have been in a steady decline since Pluto’s entry into Capricorn in 2008. The tsunami in Japan that occurred in 2011 took countless lives and has affected millions of others across the world due to its nuclear power (ruled by Pluto) plant explosion (Uranus). We’ve witnessed further political upheaval and devastation between Gaza and Israel with the nature of Israel’s connection to the US becoming more clear to many. While Pluto was engaged in the recent three year square with Uranus in Aries the rise of truth speakers rocked the status quo by exposing the multitude of government crimes against humanity. When Saturn moves full steam ahead in Sagittarius during the next couple of years, the truth will hit hard, but the lies will hit even harder. An ego always fights its own death.

On January 1st of 2015 we entered an eight year numerologically, which like Pluto is about raw power and force, for better or worse, and this led us into the next eight years of escalating war and economic crisis. Watch as the land of the “brave and the free” goes from watching the world show to getting “Plutoed”. It is already happening whether people realize it or not.

Every fourth of July, American citizens celebrate the adoption of the Declaration of Independence from Great Britain. This was one of the great marks of the American Revolution, at which time Pluto was finalizing a transit through Capricorn from 1762 to 1776. The country, born a watery Cancer Sun subject to intense emotional displays came about while Uranus was transiting Gemini when there was a strong emphasis on education and distortions of various kinds information. With this knowledge it should not come as too great and terrible of a shock that the US has been uncovered as a two-sided corporation, still under the dominion of England. In other words, the Declaration of Independence as we know it was apparently not made official, but was only a cap-marked title. What’s being celebrated is the world dominance of the British Empire in a nation that believes itself to be privileged and free.

We can also look back a century ago to what took place while Pluto transited Capricorn’s polar opposite sign Cancer between 1914-1939 for more signs of what is coming full circle now. Peoples’ sentiments and vulnerabilities were played upon with blind patriotism. Millions of families were forced from their homes during the Great Depression and the onset of World War II.

Currently underway are yet new forms of dictatorship and slavery under the banner of progress, all designed to instill a false sense of hope and excitement that there are more options for people while their rights are being stolen from them left and right. On the menu or should I say agenda are more google gadget installations both seen and unseen, “medical” upgrades, and lo and behold – (probably) a female president. Women who are happy about Hillary must not realize that a big part of this joke is on them.

Something to touch upon at this point is that the Cancer/Capricorn axis is one that in addition to home security, ancestry, publicity, business and finance hierarchies, relates to gender role reversals. With the recent riots over gay rights, Bruce Jenner’s sex change into Caitlyn, and the upcoming first woman to appear on a US bill in over a century we have seen only a symbolic glimpse of where this may lead us as a society. A person’s sexual orientation is their own business and they should have the right to switch over if they choose. However, the growing transhumanism movement is one so utterly perverse that it takes a sexually abused species and seeks to further strip it of its very soul. Adding insult to injury we are asked to pay for its services. It is a set up for us to pay and pay with all we’ve got until there is nothing left of us but a shell, creating the perfect programmable robots that the overlords of society want us to be, to suit their own purposes.

Anniversaries of Betrayal

Equally if not more appalling in effects to a fake Declaration of Independence is the upcoming 29th anniversary of the discovery of a top secret document titled Silent Weapons for a Quiet War. It was dated May 1979, found on July 7, 1986, in an IBM copier that had been purchased at a surplus sale. This document was said to be adopted by the Policy Committee of the Bilderburg Group during its first known meeting in 1954.

As it turns out World War III has been happening right under our noses. Noteworthy and just as relevant now as it was at the time of discovery is the Primary Strategy of silent war, known as Diversion:

“Experience has proven that the simplest method of securing a silent weapon and gaining control of the public is to keep the public undisciplined and ignorant of basic systems principles on the one hand, while keeping them confused, disorganized, and distracted with matters of no real importance on the other hand.

This is achieved by:

(1) Disengaging their minds, sabotaging their mental activities, by providing a low quality program of public education in mathematics, logic, systems design, and economics, and by discouraging technical creativity.

(2) Engaging their emotions, increasing their self-indulgence and their indulgence in emotional and physical activities, by:

(a) unrelenting emotional affrontations and attacks (mental and emotional rape) by way of a constant barrage of sex, violence, and wars in the media – especially the T.V. and the newspapers.

(b) giving them what they desire – in excess – “junk food for thought” and depriving them of what they really need.

(3) Rewriting history and law and subjecting the public to the deviant creation, thus being able to shift their thinking from personal needs to highly fabricated outside priorities.

These preclude their interest in and discovery of the silent weapons of social automation technology.

The general rule is that there is profit in confusion; the more confusion, the more profit. Therefore, the best approach is to create problems and then offer the solutions.”

Just as with Columbus Day and all the rest of the globally bastardized and US constructed holy days we really should ask what the hell we are paying homage to. We should also have access to “alternative” sources of information that were excluded from grammar school history books. Supposedly America was named after the Italian explorer and financier Amerigo Vespucci for his discovery of the mainland of the “New World”…never mind that there were already natives here with their own language and ritual worship of a feathered sun god Amaru, from which the name Ameruca is derived, and according to Manly P. Hall means “Land of the Plumed Serpent”. It bears a striking similarity to the word America.

It’s no coincidence that so many commercialized holidays and political outbursts occur so close to the equinoxes and solstices. Note the Charleston shooting and rage against the Confederate flag just prior to the Summer Solstice. Hideous as that was, there is usually something horrific being sold to us in the guise of beneficence and goodwill, timed perfectly with powerful earth shifts to increase their impact and persuasiveness. We’re told enormously fabricated stories of what happened in the distant past, as well as recent news and how it all has brought us to the present (so traumatized and fascinated by past/future that now no longer exists), and we are expected to treat these tales with total honor and respect.

What Goes Around…

This week I saw Rob Breszney quote the philosopher Colin Wilson in an astro forecast, that struck a chord relating to the (largely) unawakened herd state of humanity:

“Man’s being is like a vast mansion, yet he seems to prefer to live in single room in the basement.”

We vote for the very powers that enslave us, until the veils of ignorance have been lifted from us whether by choice or divine and intervening grace. Things don’t have to keep getting worse but it’s almost like people we’re curious to see how bad they can get before we do something different. I know considering how corrupt things are in the world this sounds like an oversimplification but in my humble opinion that’s largely the way that karma works. If and when we each as spiritual beings recognize that we are experiencing a human if not illusory life, fragile and subject to every manner of manipulation though it may be, that is simultaneously a miracle of creation with untapped and infinite abilities and expressions of love and beauty…we would know that we are free. Our conscious choices, actions and results would then reflect our true freedom.

Solstice June 21st 2015

The Solstice on June 21st is marked by the Sun and Moon in mutual reception – the Sun being in watery Cancer and the Moon in fiery Leo, with the two Great Benefics, Venus and Jupiter drawing very close to each other in Leo. The elements of fire and water blending together creates steam, which can be used to purify and heal. It can also indicate the irresistible and passionate attraction of opposites. The Sun is conjunct Mars in the late degrees of Gemini which increases the amount of steam being released. Since Mars is still in Gemini this might entail “steam coming out of one’s ears” or the need to blow off of steam verbally or through the hands. EFT – also known as tapping is one effective way to do this.lion and unicoron

This Solstice the Sun is squaring the nodal axis, which highlights the relationship we have to powerful authority figures, including our own personal sense of power, and whatever we perceive to be the God of this Universe. There is a deep pressing need to connect with both power and purpose at this time, which of course will be abused by some and well used by others.

Venus and Jupiter will reach their conjunction at 22 degrees of Leo on July 1st. These two planets together are known to bestow great blessings whenever they are joined, and in the sign of the lion there is warmth, creativity, and an almost overwhelming desire to express love and affection. Painting, singing, and dancing are also perfect ways to channel the energies of this pairing. In conjunction with the Owl Nebula M97, the Venus and Jupiter alignment will not allow us forget the importance of a certain amount of darkness in our lives, without which we would not be able to regenerate.

“The Owl Nebula suggests we use wisdom and night vision to see what which is obscured by the dogmatic veils that we uphold with our existing belief structures, or those created by prominent ego-based individuals and world powers.”– Nick Anthony Fiorenza

Summer Solstice, the longest day of the year is one of nature’s sacred holidays. The veils between the worlds tend to thin in a bright and cheerful way rather than a “spooky”, Halloween way. The vibrancy of plant life can be more readily seen and experienced on multidimensional levels. May we celebrate the beauty of this planet we currently live on and honor her with rituals of devotion and respect.

New Moon in Gemini 2015

“The real secret of magic is that the world is made of words, and that if you know the words that the world is made of you can make of it whatever you wish.” – Terence McKenna – Alien Dreamtime 1993

A New Moon at 25 degrees Gemini occurs on June 16th, in an exact conjunction with action oriented Mars. Communication is amped and ignited by whatever makes us irritated, joyful, inspired, or proud. There is growing sense of clarity and alignment between the divisions of consciousness  (be they higher/lower, male/female, inside/outside) as Gemini’s ruling planet Mercury trails out of the post-Retrograde shadow in the final days of the current season – Spring on the Western hemisphere. We are in the midst of the last of three squares from Mercury to foggy Neptune approaching on June 23rd, which has created mental traps and verbal webs of enchantment since early May. This strange tension alternately presents us with hard edged, simultaneously heart-softening truths that can liberate us from that which formerly brought confusion. The New Moon’s square to Chiron brings up painful memories as well as opportunities to rescript the chapters of our life stories that have outlived their usefulness.

The combining effects of thoughts, words and sounds are greatly emphasized in ways that we cannot help but recognize their profound impact on our health, relationships and outer manifestations. A resistance to change and passing emotional states intensifies our suffering. It can be that our greatest medicine now is allowing ourselves to express freely – at least to ourselves, whether the feelings we express seem acceptable or not. There are bound to be both positive and negative expressions of the Power of Word during this New Moon and the days that follow. Arguments might seem more heated than ever, while words of love and beauty stir the depths of our souls. These words may not necessarily come in the form of writing or ordinary speech but through poetry and song, or even so-called gibberish. There are sacred syllables and sounds used in all of the ancient mystery schools in various cultures, from Egypt to India to Australia. One of the most powerful forms of speech is that of Sanskrit mantra. The most widely known mantras used both by itself and in conjunction with other Sanskrit words is used is OM, perceived as the very sound of creation itself. Some people chant this to achieve mental calmness.

This Gemini New Moon is opposite of the Galactic Center, which is another factor in swiftly bringing our thoughts and words into physical reality. This alignment indicates a tremendous expansion of awareness that we should not let go to waste.

The upcoming Solstice on June 21st brings fun and fortune as Venus and Jupiter join together in sunny Leo and form a trine to adventurous Uranus in Aries. Romance, creativity, and renewed passion are all being heightened as possibilities open wide as the sky. Gifts both tangible and intangible are offered and readily available to the extent that we are willing or capable of receiving.

This is a time to be outrageously authentic, courageous, and curious, above all in our thoughts and words. We should not always assume we have the answers to life’s riddles and especially our cherished problems. When we dare to question everything including ourselves, answers come and it’s our duty to sort through those that are factual or false – what makes sense in the moment? When we make a series of strong statements whether we like it or not, the corresponding actions and actualizations very soon follow. Basically, over and over again we find that our perception of life and what it brings us is a self-fulfilling prophecy.

Mercury Direct, Neptune Retrograde

alchemical-marriage

Alchemical Marriage – Emily Balivet

Mercury is slowing down to go Direct at 5 degrees Gemini on June 11th, having been Retrograde since May 18th. Meanwhile, Neptune slows down to go Retrograde at 10 degrees Pisces on the 12th. While Mercury Retrograde has been said to befuddle the mind, Neptune Retrograde has the opposite effect, since it normally represents areas where we are easily fooled. Have you gained any clarity during the past few weeks – any insights into the nature of your mental capacities, education, upbringing, group consensus or your relationships with others? Have you cracked open any codes within your existing philosophical or religious background or consciousness in general? Some people have struggled less with mental issues and more with electronic devices.

Since the Full Moon of May 3rd Mercury has been opposing Retrograde Saturn in Sagittarius. The stifling conditions of the past have been under review and the pieces of many old puzzles have finally been solved. Buried historical truths have been uncovered. Perhaps you’ve been disputing with certain authority figures, whether they happen to be government agents, employers, or older family members.

It is possible that the your solution or resolution has appeared. It is almost time to move forward again with renewed energy and ideas…but first, some acknowledgements must be made. We have just gone through a major rite of a passage.

We know Mercury as trickster and messenger but few recognize him as the cosmic psychopomp – the somewhat crazy seer, shaman, or off-his-rocker usher that guides spirits through the underworld, to the “other side” wherever that may be. In this case, we have seen the death and even crushing of many old, outdated ideas about ourselves and life itself. This is no small thing. It can take time to assimilate both the endings of and beginnings of what we perceive as knowledge.

Be patient with yourself and the smoothing out of your affairs this week and next, as Mercury does not exit the post-shadow phase until June 27th. Mercury remains in Gemini until July 8th, continuing its emphasis on communications, thought processes and a heightening of all the senses. Can you come to at least one basic agreement while still disagreeing with someone or something? Mercury in Gemini picks up so much information that it’s sometimes challenging to act on any of it. Neptune Retrograde shatters illusions and interrupts dissonance patterns in our psyches, initiating a process of elimination and clarification that should help us to prioritize in the weeks to come. Allow the truth the unfold and the dust to settle. Then, move onward with faith and determination.

Flower Essences for the Signs

“To see a world in a grain of sand and a heaven in a wild flower, hold infinity in the palm of your hand and eternity in an hour.”  – William Blake

P1020572

The flower essences spoken of here do not refer to those with a fragrance, but rather the energetic signatures of the flowers themselves which are imprinted into water by sunlight and then preserved, typically with brandy. Flower essences are taken internally to address the mental, emotional, and spiritual imbalances which, if left unchecked become manifest as illness in the physical body.

Dr. Edward Bach who was the major pioneer of Flower Essences in the modern age was well aware of the correlation between astrology, the chakras and both physical and psychological states. Although he was not informed or comfortable enough to expound upon the specific correlations of flower essences to the twelve zodiac signs, he mentioned their significance in his article Twelve Healers in 1933:

“These types of personality are indicated to us by the moon according to which sign of the Zodiac she is in at birth, and a study of this will give us the following points:

  1. The type of personality
  2. His object and work in life
  3. The remedy which will assist him in that work.

… the secret of life is to be true to our personality, not to suffer interference from outside influences. Our personality we learn from the position of the moon at birth; our dangers of interference from the planets”

Bach had produced 38 essences before his passing, and these essences have stood the test of time. The specific Twelve Healers that were highlighted in his article have been listed with corresponding Virtues and Faults. Their astrological counterparts were yet to be determined but many astrologers have since found their connections. Of course certain signs may share a need for the same essence.

Essence  Virtue Fault
Agrimony Stillness Torment
Scleranthus Steadfastness Indecision
Vervain Tolerance The Enthusiast
Clematis Gentleness Indifference
Chicory Love Congestion
Gentian Understanding Discouragement
Water Violet Joy Grief
Centaury Power The Doormat
Impatiens Forgiveness Pain
Cerato Wisdom The Fool
Rock Rose Courage Terror
Mimulus Sympathy Fear

Listed below are some of the most challenged and wounded areas of each sign along with corresponding flower essences and crystals to address their core issues. This is not to say that all people born under these signs struggle with all of these issues. They are the destructive tendencies and imbalances of each sign that may be present in people to various degrees, in various aspects of their lives, at various times. For that matter, the energy of all signs are present in all of us to some degree. One must take into consideration not only the Sun sign but also the Ascendant, Moon and other planetary positions and their aspects. There are also certain times in our lives represented by transits that these energies seem more strong and noticeable than others. Crystals and gems can be used to make essences too (called elixirs), or worn for similar effects. Essences and crystals can help with life transitions as well as shift stubborn, longstanding patterns. I intend to add to this list over time.
