The disruption promised by the April 9-20 stellium in hot-blooded Aries continues. Neptune, the planet that was clearly in charge during the Boston Massacre (it straddled the Descendant of that chart) continues to sow chaos, confusion, and, we can presume, compassion.
Meanwhile, another eruption, this one near Waco, Texas, only two days from the anniversary of the awful fed shooting there, is being compared by some in the MSM to the Oklahoma City blast. . . Clearly, no matter who supposedly is behind any or all of these events, it does seem like a timeline of terror is being invoked, an attempt to control the narrative and capture the minds of those still susceptible to brainwashing.
Fear begets fear, which begets hate. And, love begets love. In each moment of our lives, we can choose. Each moment of our lives is a choice point. Do we separate, or do we include. Do we judge or do we open our hearts. See Charles Eisenstein’s new post for more on this.
Meanwhile, check out what “Archangel Michael” has to say about who’s responsible for the Boston explosions: homegrown right-wing extremists. And then, read what Alex Jones and cohorts are reporting: Navy Seals turned superdooper black ops mercenaries, a la Blackwater, but more so — at the Boston site, with black backpacks on their backs and nasty-looking “Craft” logos on their hats. Oh my!
Breathe. Breathe again. And yet again. Choose love.
P.S. I write this as a tornado watch has been issued for Bloomington.

Ascendant of Boston Marathon massacre. The confirmed time of the first explosion is 2:49:44 based on the start time of the race and the time on the clock at the time of the first explosion. This was calculated by my colleague Larry Ely. I will describe what Orcus is doing in this chart in Friday’s edition.
I’ve spent the evening at my desk, taking apart the chart of the Boston Marathon bombing, preparing for writing Friday’s lead article in the member edition. The chart for the incident is an astonishing chart, in how it describes just what’s happening.
It’s a chart with a prominent, as in very prominent, Neptune (which I describe in detail in the new Planet Waves FM). That’s about looking into a fog, a delusion, a haze of confusion. This has been playing out all week. The situation in the news Wednesday was utter chaos — on the part of journalists and public officials.

The false report by CNN’s John King of the arrest of a suspect causing chaos in the news, an arrest in the ricin incidents, the cancellation of the press briefing in Boston.
The Senate was blocked by a Republican filibuster and did not get to vote on closing the background check loopholes; people will still be able to get around the federally mandated background check just by purchasing at gun shows or on the Internet. Notice the determination of Sandy Hook parents and Bostonians to persist, to persevere. Humans are survivors and we are adaptable. We need to tap into those traits right now.
Meanwhile, the day was capped off by an explosion near Waco, Texas and another in Oklahoma City — close to the anniversaries of the prior famous events in those towns…it’s been a weird and interesting day.
We’re being confronted by so much; so much that’s unpleasant; so much of what humanity and our culture have created for themselves, for us. While planets are busy changing signs from Aries to Taurus (Venus went first, to be followed by the Sun and Mars over the weekend), I think for now the planet to watch is Mercury, as it makes its conjunction to Uranus. This suggests we’re in for some additional surprises. You maybe thinking gee, thanks. I would rather stop the cosmos. However…as your astrologer I’m here to tell you…the wheels are still turning.
Mercury is actually passing through the Uranus-Pluto square — the aspect that is telling the story of the 2012 era. That’s a span of time that, in retrospect, will cover from around 2008 through around 2020, and we’re in the peak of it now — the next of seven exact contacts of Uranus and Pluto is next month. When a personal planet like Mercury comes through, we get an amplification effect and we can see and feel the moment in a tangible way.
For personal astrology, this can be beautifully illuminating. I can envision over the next few days many revelations, self-discoveries and, as Allen Ginsberg said so beautifully, the moment of waking to see the world go wild. Mercury conjunct Uranus, square Pluto, is too vivid and clear and alive to resist. So let’s take the ride and expect the unexpected — and embrace existence with a spirit of discovery that’s one of the most beautiful things about humanity.
I was going over tonight’s astrology with Amanda, and remembered this song that the current moment, and the current astrology, reminds me of — The Boy in the Bubble by Paul Simon.
It’s easy and natural to look out and be mad at the world, to be outraged by the conduct of the Senate and the NRA, to grieve over the loss in Boston — of life and love and the damage to a beautiful tradition. And yet it’s also possible to see the world showing itself for what it is, so that we can open our eyes and look, and do something creative in response.
This is a moment to gaze into the cosmic mirror…and see the way we look to us all.
There was a bright light
A shattering of shop windows
The bomb in the baby carriage
Was wired to the radio
These are the days of miracle and wonder
This is the long distance call
The way the camera follows us in slo-mo
The way we look to us all
The way we look to a distant constellation
That’s dying in a corner of the sky
These are the days of miracle and wonder
And don’t cry baby, don’t cry
