I leave this evening for the Indy airport, to pick up my dear old friend Darvesha MacDonald and drive up to Fort Wayne, Indiana, where she will conduct a Dances of Universal Peace weekend with those of us who love to sing and dance and pray together in the Sufi tradition. I would love it if anyone reading this blog who lives in the area would join us! Here’s the poster.
Today is a catch-up day for me, so this will be my only post, until probably Tuesday, July 23, after I see Darvesha back to the airport for her flight home to Silver City, New Mexico.
So, a few odds and ends, the first astrological. I posted on the upcoming Star of David July 29th, a wonderfully harmonious, if short-lived six-pointed configuration in water and earth elements that will hopefully center us in our own bodies on this good Earth as we release whatever pent-up passion we have so carefully hidden from ourselves and others. Unplug that gunky emotional gunk that has held back your aliveness! Focus the energy as it begins to stream through you! It’s yours, its free, and it powers the universe.
I did not speak about what surrounds this Star, and that’s the ongoing periodic triggering of the revolutionary, unpredictable, chaotic Uranus/Pluto square (2012-2015) that rips the lid off and stirs the pot in extremely uncomfortable ways. Whatever remains to be purged from your unconscious will be, during this long hot summer — if you allow it. The first obvious trigger (at least for me, experientially), was the transit of the Sun in Cancer, square Uranus/Pluto, on July 4th.
Today, July 17th, Uranus turns to go retrograde at 13° Aries. Whatever has been brewing, will most likely start to recede, to be worked over underneath, prior to re-start on December 26, 2013, when Uranus again turns to go direct. This see-sawing, forward/backward, is typical of planets from Earth’s point of view. It means that we get a chance to go back over situations, three or more times, learning more, hopefully, with each pass over the same point. When outer planets advance and retreat, these swings are long and wide. What we need to build in during the retrograde swing is an awareness of what’s brewing inside us, and hopefully, increase our capacity to both hold it consciously and resolve to act upon it with awareness once the planet turns to go direct. Some kind of radical departure from whatever path no longer feels viable. You will know what I’m talking about if you have planets on or near the 13th degree of any of the cardinal signs: Aries, Cancer, Libra, Capricorn.
So today is heavy, intense, Uranian, feels like “lightning in a dark sky,” sudden and unpredictable. Breathe!
Okay, the next important date is Friday, July 19th, when Mercury turns to go direct after one of its thrice-yearly three week retrograde periods. It does this at 13° Cancer! Expect sudden unpredictable communications, new information, etc. As if “out of the blue.”
Now to the big stuff. The long-running Uranus/Pluto square (2012-2015) currently running between 9° and 13° of the cardinal signs, will be triggered by first Mars in Cancer, the last week of July, and then joined by Jupiter, also in Cancer, for the entire month of August. Folks, things are not going to slow down. We have to learn to resource ourselves in place, now. The intervals between events feel, basically, non-existent.
And that’s just this summer. More, later.
Okay, now here’s a few things that I have not gotten around to posting about, sent to me by various beautiful people, including SueM, Rose, and Rita.
From SueM, a long, fascinating interview:
From Rose, an alternative reading of David Wilcock’s latest release, interesting to Rose because its echoes, in part, her own “BS detector.” P.S. love the picture of the author, a caregiver to his handicapped son.
And finally, From Rita, an interesting post by Norman Shealy, which I’ll paste here, in full:
Who Runs the World?
C. Norman Shealy, M.D., Ph.D.
Thirty years ago I read NONE DARE CALL IT CONSPIRACY and had several dreams that it was indeed true. According
In 1972, Allen wrote with Larry Abraham None Dare Call It Conspiracy (prefaced by Congressmen John G. Schmitz), a best seller which achieved sales of over five million copies worldwide during the United States presidential election.
In this book, Congressmen John G. Schmitz says in the Introduction, “The story you are about to read is true.” Allen goes on to assert that the present political and economic systems in most developed nations are the result of a sweeping conspiracy by the Establishment‘s power elite, which started in the early 1900s.
CALL IT CONSPIRACY by Larry Abraham, a Ph.D. historian, expanded on the original thesis.
Since that time, I have read many books that most often are totally compatible with the original, the most notable being:
THE BIGGEST SECRET by David Icke
THE COMMITTEE OF 3OO, 2nd & 4th editions, by John Coleman
AMERICAN CONSPIRACIES by Jesse Ventura
The most recent is THE ATLANTEAN CONSPIRACY-Exposing the Illuminati from Atlantis to 2012.
And, of course, 9 books by Zechariah Sitchin also lay a foundation for the origin of the concept that The Nephilim who came down from heaven (ET’s) set the stage by appointing Kings who are supposed to have absolute rule forever. This is the most striking proof of ET’s hidden in the open in the BIBLE, in GENESIS, possibly 4000 years old and, according to Sitchin, a Readers Digest version of history!!
The recent public disclosure by a Canadian retired Minister of Defense has given more credence to both ET involvement and the not so SECRET powers that control government. Undeniably our media are owned by the insiders of this Secret force that may best be called The Committee of 300. Thus the pap we get from all media and their failure to cover the TITANIC evidence that this is going on leaves most people in the dark or hypnotized and drugged out of reality This is coupled with the Committee’s control of food, energy, drugs, Congress, etc. Unless there is significant Awakening, the future is indeed One World Government By the Elite, For the Elite and Of the Elite!! And remember, those who believe that there is conspiracy are much more likely to be sane!
DeHaven-Smith also explains why those who doubt official explanations of high crimes are eager to discuss historical context. He points out that a very large number of conspiracy claims have turned out to be true, and that there appear to be strong relationships between many as-yet-unsolved “state crimes against democracy.”
