Re: Astrology: The Cardinal Cross, a Really Awful Alignment

Hand Clow on the Fall Equinox:
http://www.handclow2012.com/astroflash.htm

2010 Fall Equinox: September 22, 2010 / View Chart

The Fall Equinox has arrived, the time to see our endeavors as aspects of the collective mind. We begin by reviewing our 2010 Spring Equinox intentions: How are your creations coming along? Assess your progress by clearly identifying what you have attained and learned over the past six months, because your works become part of the larger whole during the fall. If you've already completed your intentions, then you are on your path! Congratulations for making progress. The Fall Equinox is when we get honest about what we are doing, and we will do so because this fall will be emotionally explosive. If you're still working on some of your intentions, be clear about what you've already accomplished; then you may find your creations complete as they weave into the collective mind. This is especially likely because the collective field is changing so rapidly. If something you intended to create just didn't happen, zippo!, out it goes, since it probably didn't really matter to you anyway.

We have just lived through an extraordinary summer of deep structural change that is starting to release great individual creative potential. Yet, the collective field is very confusing because people moving in new directions are tripping over old cluttered systems that keep on collapsing. As National and Planetary Underworld systems-wars, financial hierarchies, industrial systems, and medical programs-become untenable, people hold onto old ways like ratty little dogs biting pant legs. Stuck in old mindsets, angry and rude, they pollute the political climate and Nature. Meanwhile, if you can release the useless old ways, you can fly through the solid dimension. Wizards who fly around on magic carpets in the sixth dimension are moving the energy now, which will have a huge effect on the solid world this fall. [See Alchemy of Nine Dimensions.]

Creative energy has been withdrawn from collapsing systems at the grass roots level, since many people don't care about saving them. People are walking away from communities that have been reduced to abandoned roads, rotting bridges, and boarded-up houses. Many older people just throw away their prescription drugs and go out for a walk in the sun. Soldiers back from Iraq weigh their chances of getting called up to Afghanistan. They wonder if they should just quit and throw away their pensions, free housing on the base, and the slim chance for medical coverage. Prisons are closing because the profits aren't high enough and people are getting out of jail. This fall is the golden moment when you can take charge at the local level. Change happens at the local level, and this Fall Equinox and Libra New Moon predict the rise of grassroots movements. Possibly your 2010 Spring Equinox intentions are the seeds for new grassroots endeavors in your area?

Usually, the Sun moving into Libra just wants to have a nice party and experience la-la-la harmony. But not this year! The equinox Sun is approaching an exact square to Pluto in Capricorn and a conjunction to Saturn. A few hours after the equinox, the Moon goes into Aries and opposes the Sun-a tense early cardinal Full Moon that squares newly direct Pluto close to the Galactic Center. Simply put, this fall is the reckoning time for Earth's organizational systems, a time when you must evaluate your place in them. Systems don't function when people lose belief in them. The Fall Equinox chart predicts great change, and the worst thing you could do is resist or do nothing. This Sun in Libra shouts, "Make decisions and act!"

Mars and Venus very close together in Scorpio make us feel very creative and emotionally responsive as long as we don't get stuck. If you feel jammed in a corner, take a long walk and talk yourself out of it. People won't think you're crazy, since these days everybody talks out loud in the streets. The equinox chart suggests things are so difficult that many people are going to just get moving. You want to be part of the movement, not the resistance. Politicians will try to milk the public treasury far as long as possible, but the people demand new things that work. Like, where'd all the money go? On September 30, the Sun makes it to Saturn, when many people will make hard choices and stick with them. People will be moving out of houses they don't own, dead-end jobs, and lifeless relationships.

The Sun approaching Saturn is the grounder for this equinox; this aspect is very much needed as the Sun moves into Libra and opposes Moon, Jupiter, and Uranus clutched together in 27-28 Pisces. The Neptunian triple conjunction intensifies the summer's dream of compassionate transformation. Then the Moon moves quickly over Jupiter/Uranus, and demands action when it goes into Aries at the Full Moon. This Full Moon right after the equinox opens our hearts and feelings to the wild transformations that were inspired by the Jupiter/Uranus conjunctions during the summer. The first conjunction was in early June, and the second one right before this equinox on September 18.

The cardinal T-squares stretched each one of us out on the rack all summer, while Jupiter/Uranus opened new creative fields. Now as the Sun goes into Libra, Jupiter-exact-conjunct-Uranus will blast open more creative potential. When Jupiter conjuncts Uranus, irresistible new projects just appear. For example, during their first conjunction in early June, I noticed that our city council was suddenly pushing for big and unexpected reforms, which many people felt they couldn't stop. Then a nearby sleepy island suddenly decided it wanted to become a National Park! These crazy ideas made my head spin all summer, and maybe you noticed things like this in your hometown? Meanwhile, all this occurred amidst the unbearable personal tension of the cardinal squares, which now, thankfully, are pulling apart, allowing ideas to release.

The first exact conjunction of Jupiter and Uranus was June 8 in Aries. Now retrograde, they conjuncted in Pisces on September 18, when the big media news was "extensive poverty in the richest country in the world, the USA!" When planets transit Pisces, they complete agendas that started when they were previously in Aries-1999 for Jupiter, and 1928 for Uranus. Thus, until Jupiter goes back into Aries January 22, 2011, we will be completing and polishing our personal Galactic Underworld creations since 1999. [See Appendix C of The Mayan Code for some very important work on this issue.] In 1928, Uranus in Aries had a lot to do with crashing the stock market in 1929, which was also a time of widespread American poverty and a few wealthy people getting richer. Top-heavy societies crash. While Uranus is in Pisces until March 11, 2011, you still have time to make some financial changes before the coming depression. Since Jupiter is joining Uranus during the last transit in Pisces, there is a strong tendency to enact financial reforms, such as the banking and investment bill that was passed in July in the USA. Financial reforms were a big issue all over the globe during summer 2010, and this pressure will continue to January 2011 when the third and last conjunction occurs in Pisces. Then, when both planets go back into Aries, these changes will activate new paths and systems.

The fascinating thing about the triple conjunction is the Moon's involvement. With Moon/Jupiter/Uranus conjunct in Pisces exactly opposite the Sun moving into Libra, most people will be compelled to overreach themselves to help others out and to focus on their community this fall. If you resist compassionate responses to those in need, the opposing Sun/Saturn in Libra will just push you into it. But, what's the focus? The top of the T-square-Pluto-defines the focus: Pluto in Capricorn is cleaning out negative blocks and liberating the potential for deep revolution. With this potent opposition involving Uranus (change), Jupiter (well-being), Moon (feelings), Sun (self-knowledge), and Saturn (making forms), and with Pluto now direct since September 13, forget about staying out of the fray. We are moving closer to becoming a unified species during 2011. During the fall we will separate the healing elements from the bad energy by means of our personal healing.

Chiron and Neptune in 27 Aquarius are less than thirty seconds apart, so the pressure is off the scale to move through blocks and heal them, as I discussed in detail in my Virgo New Moon reading. Face your inner pain and clear the blockages, and bodywork is needed this fall. The Moon in the 1776 USA chart is 27 Aquarius, so the USA will be the focus for the collective planetary pain. Since the USA has arrogantly persisted in pursuing agendas that even the majority of its own citizens do not support, there may be a massive turning away from the USA agendas. Globally, people cringe in horror as they watch a great country throw itself away in questionable wars that impoverish its people.

Mars and Venus are still traveling together in the sky in Scorpio, so the pressure for male/female balance and harmony is Plutonic. People will demand what they want and need this fall regardless of the consequences. This will not be easy, but this balancing will encourage sharing and fairness. Mercury in exacting and clear Virgo sextiling Mars/Venus in Scorpio signifies an honoring of people's needs and emotions. This will be an emotional fall, a time of deep soul-searching for individuals and communities. New paths will open if you surrender and go with the flow. Stay the course!

WOW!  She's so "right-on", but that's for MY life, and, as I wrote, I've got Pluto conjunct my Sun/Mercury right now, so all these temporal discussions fit me perfectly.  Lots of change happening.

These are exciting times, and each one of us, by what we do and think now, will have an enormously powerful effect on what we call the future.  Pay attention, be mindful, and do the best you can.

Re: Astrology: The Cardinal Cross, a Really Awful Alignment

Anyone else have, ah, "interesting" events happen in their lives this past Equinox?

Hit me like a ton of bricks, but the feeling was of necessary change, like a dam had burst.

Change still happening, working through this...

Re: Astrology: The Cardinal Cross, a Really Awful Alignment

Absolutely.  Dear gosh.  Of course I just started taking female hormones and life has been throwing me some serious emotional turmoils.  Grandma passed away, friend in car accident had a good friend of his die in the car with him and a close friend all since grade school almost committed suicide.  All of these situations have had silver linings of their own, but still.  I feel like I've gone through a lot of growth through sorrow very quickly.

    Scorpio New Moon: November 5, 2010

    “The New Moon in Scorpio has arrived, the deepest and most intense lunation of the solar year, the time to get honest about your true feelings. Once you have found emotional clarity, then it is possible to sharpen your will, your instrument for fulfilling your intentions in life. Anyone who has experienced the water sword-Scorpio-knows all about these incisive powers. During the remarkable cardinal squares this summer, many people found themselves using their will power very intentionally, and this felt really good. Well, these intentions are to be fulfilled this fall. What were they for you? What did you find yourself hammering away at all summer?

    During such remarkable creative change in general, you may have also felt chaotic, ungrounded, dislocated, and frantic during the summer. Have you noticed yourself trying to figure out what happened in your life during this summer? Ironically, it does not really matter how you handled what actually came up because change plays itself out in increments, and the changes we are experiencing now are group changes. But, with this Scorpio New Moon occurring at the opening of Day Seven of the Galactic Underworld, we can each adjust to, and integrate, the great collective shifts; this will be easier for you if you intend to adjust yourself. Since each one of us is an equally significant voter in what is created, we each must activate our wills to create what we believe in now. The planetary cues in this reading can help you use your imagination to strengthen your will and create intentionally.

    This Plutonic dark Moon comes a few days after the entrance into Day Seven of the Galactic Underworld. [See The Mayan Code: Time Acceleration and Awakening the World Mind.] Day Sevens of any Underworld are when the fruition of that Underworld’s evolutionary agenda occurs. In the case of the Galactic Underworld (1999-2011) Day Seven is November 3, 2010, through October 28, 2011, when we will experience the maturation of technology. In the case of the Planetary Underworld (1755-2011), Day Seven is 1992-2011, when we moved into full globalization during the Clinton Era; and with Day Seven of the Galactic, technology will be evolving our species into Oneness in one short year. We are slated to experience the benefits of technology in ways we can barely imagine that will bring us together in wholeness, in Oneness. Meanwhile, things are going so fast now-with all Nine Underworlds moving into simultaneous culmination during 2011-that any tool we have is very much needed. This New Moon can help you clearly identify your agenda within this great collective game and will activate you to assume your role.

    There is great astrological potential for us to pull together during this Scorpio New Moon. While people around the planet celebrate the New Moon, they also celebrate Day Seven of the Galactic, which is resonating with the Day Sevens of all previous seven Underworlds. When Day Seven of the 102,000-year Regional Underworld opened in 5900 BC, we were recovering from the Night Six cataclysms. Looking back in time, we find the goddess culture of art and beauty thriving in advanced villages like Catal Huyuk. When Day Seven of the 5,125-year National Underworld opened in 1617 AD, Europeans were finished with the Inquisition and the plagues. Looking back, we find that the Age of Exploration and early science were culminating the intentions of the National Underworld civilizations. During Day Seven of the Planetary Underworld, a strong global economic revival began in 1992 that lasted more than ten years.

    By examining the chart, I can see that this Scorpio New Moon does express convergent forces that could push us into Oneness with technology. It is loaded with personal tips that can be used to take advantage of the grand opportunity that has occurred only seven times previously during 16.4 billion years! This moment is the eighth great culmination of an Underworld, and the ninth and last one will happen during October 2011. This means that we are taking two great steps over the next twelve months. This knowledge is also has its practical side. For example, from studying demographics, Jupiter/Saturn cycles, and Pluto’s transit through Capricorn, I can see that we are in the early stages of a ten-to-fifteen-year economic downturn. However, Day Sevens of the Planetary and Galactic Underworlds suggest otherwise. This means that these time accelerations may be especially distorting normal economic cycles. Investors take note: There could be a boom in some sectors of technology, especially the ones that point to the next stage of our evolution-uses of free energy and consciousness in the higher planes.

    During the planetary pairings of the Libra lunation, we witnessed many new revelations:

    * WikiLeaks released a second wave of data exposing the insanity of war;

    * reports showed that Halliburton’s concrete failures may have caused the Deepwater Horizon oil spill;

    * thankfully, the US did not bomb Iran’s nuclear facilities, which had been discussed for many months;

    * the American mid-term elections reflected great change in the American society, which captured worldwide attention.

    Meanwhile, many of Carl Calleman’s readers surged forward with ceremonies to balance male and female energies as Day Seven of the Galactic begins.

    Gerry and I were in India and Europe for the past five weeks, and foreign papers showed that the whole world still hopes that America can help the world escape despotism and mayhem. During the Libra New Moon, Pluto was moving inexorably closer to the lunar North Node in Capricorn, which squared Saturn/Mercury in Libra. This meant October was a time of karmic crisis over the need for deep change in our world. Many felt this strain in their personal lives as they observed monumental events in the world.

    Well, during the Scorpio New Moon, Pluto is exactly conjunct the North Node in Capricorn while sextiling Venus in early Scorpio and Chiron/Neptune in late Aquarius. Venus is trining Neptune/Chiron, which means the issue is healing female pain and imagination. The crisis brought to a head during the cardinal squares this summer will intensify during this lunar month, and a new sense of direction will emerge. There is not going to be any way to avoid confronting the toughest issues of our times, and to realize that life is never going to be the same. We all have to release old dysfunctional patterns to make space for new paths.

    Significantly, Chiron and Neptune are just a few minutes apart; Chiron goes direct just before this New Moon, and Neptune goes direct the day after. Therefore, the themes of the Scorpio New Moon are: the Plutonic restructuring of systems to be accomplished by means of a great healing crisis, and a Chiron-conjunct-Neptune-trine-Venus inspiring the feminine revival during the end of the Mayan Calendar. Because of these elements, something really big is going to happen with our seas and/or oil (ruled by Pluto). I suspect this because Chiron went into Pisces for the first time just a few hours before the Deep Water Horizon oil platform explosion, which consequently was felt as a global wounding. Perhaps we will have to face the truth about the deeply hidden damage to our oceans, Neptune’s world? The New Moon chart offers some ideas.

    The New Moon is in the middle degrees of Scorpio, where its Plutonic influence is the strongest. We have moved out of the phase of three Super Moons-Leo, Virgo, and Libra-yet, still this New Moon has no aspects! This is the fourth New Moon with no aspects to it, which is really compelling, since a New Moon with no major aspects is quite rare. Thus, the Scorpio lunation hovers uninfluenced, which intensifies its Plutonic potency that cannot be avoided with Pluto right on the lunar North Node. Some big lines will be drawn in the sand this month. Hopefully, most of the tectonic stress from three Super Moons was released in the Indonesian quake and tsunami and Mt. Merapi’s eruption in Java.

    In general, the New Moon in Scorpio is passionate, truthful, desperate, and frequently stuck. This force makes us feel intense and mindful about everything-Scorpio’s sword! Pluto (which rules Scorpio) sitting on the North Node means everybody has to handle the really big structural transformations that now underlie our reality. We will feel that what each one of us does or does not do really matters, and this is true. Venus is positioned before the New Moon, while Mercury follows later in Scorpio, so we are acutely receptive to deep feelings while also possessing keen insight about what’s important. The challenge is to master our wills by aligning our feelings and beliefs with the greater agendas of our times. Used correctly, this is the perfect New Moon for launching the fruition phase-Day Seven-of the Galactic Underworld.

    Pluto on the lunar North Node compels us to embrace structural change and new paths in life. The sextile from Venus in Scorpio to Pluto in Capricorn brings on the most helpful aspects of the feminine perspective. Venus is poised to inspire the much-needed balancing between male and female powers. For example, there are many women in the military these days. Surely the only good reason for women (or anybody) to be involved in the last stages of warfare would be to soften warrior instincts so that they are used only for protection and survival. Isn’t it time to wonder whether both men and women can use their power in better ways? I realize that one way to have a decent-paying job in the US these days is to go into the military, but still that is no excuse for killing others and throwing your own life away.

    Maybe this month will bring forth women who crusade for the reformation of the military, an agency that is simply meant to protect people. Venus trines Chiron/Neptune, an aspect that suggests women will be the source of great healing. Chiron/Neptune closely squares Mercury in Scorpio, which hints that more and more women will see the truth about the military being merely a tool to keep the Elite in power. I’ve always felt that putting women into combat would eventually end wars, and I stick by that belief. Mercury squaring Chiron/Neptune and trining Uranus/Jupiter suggests surprises-and maybe a long-awaited balancing from the goddess within.

    Meanwhile, Saturn in 12 Libra sextiles Mars in 6 Sagittarius. Saturn in Libra builds structures that balance things, and there will be a strong tendency for those in power to take the high road. Mars was exactly conjunct Saturn on July 31, a few days after the Full Moon on July 26. Then, Saturn and Mars were closely opposed to Uranus and Jupiter, and all four were closely squaring Pluto. That was exactly when WikiLeaks released part of their huge War Logs File, and the public got some real information about what’s going on in Afghanistan. Then three months later on October 25, right after the 29 Aries Full Moon (the ultimate balance stress), Mercury was conjunct Venus in 8 Scorpio, and Julian Assange of WikiLeaks courageously released more of these files. He was outrageously slandered in the media, yet publicly honored by Daniel Ellsburg, the man who pulled the plug on the Vietnam War with his Pentagon Papers in late June of 1971.

    As Mars in Sagittarius sextiles Saturn in Libra on November 15, and the Sun trines Jupiter in 23 Scorpio, maybe people will be inspired to raise up and get their governments to stop the wars. I’d say the mid-term elections in the United States indicate that the budget needs to be severely cut, and the military is the logical place to begin.

    The theme of the Day Seven celebrations is harmony between men and women, which will create the end of war on Earth during the end of the Mayan Calendar, since division in partnerships is the genesis of violence. We all have a lot of work to do, and it begins at home.”

Warning! BIG CHANGES predicted for December 2010! North Node and Mars conjunct Pluto

This is something that most astrologers are missing!

Between November 2010 and January 2011, North Node conjuncts Pluto and triggers the cardinal T-square, while at a same time Mars join the pair and later a Full Moon (and lunar eclipse) on the solstice day. This is a major event, as big as last August's cardinal climax.

The implications of this are huge. Watch out for significant karmic/fate developments around this time: remember November 2010 to January 2011. This applies both to our personal lives and to world events. The first weeks of December will be highly charged. I can't remember of a Christmas time with so much intense astrological configurations.

Some major economic, political or military event, this November or December?

In global affairs, I don't know exactly what this means, but watch for some powerful, potentially destructive events, because Pluto is involved, and with global implications, because this occurs in Capricorn. Two possibilities are another economic meltdown or a new war. Alternatively there might be a big scandal, or some other sort of crises. It may involve banks, governments, corporations or the military, because this the node conjuncts Pluto in Capricorn. At worse, this can be a serious economic crises, popular revolts, a war or a terrorist attack. A major natural disaster is another probable scenario. These are just possibilities and maybe might will happen, but still I think at least one of these things will make major headlines this November or December. Remember, the windows of possibility occurs during the whole period, starting now and until January, although Mars also joins the pair in the first two weeks of December, adding intensity and dynamics.

Those who have personal planets or angles, in the last degrees of mutable signs and early degrees of cardinal signs could feel this as a particularly intense, challenging and dynamic period!
Watch out those born between 18 and 27 December, 18-27 June, 18-27 March and 18-27 September. Pay attention to what happened during the last weeks of July to determine what this might be about.

I can give you examples of previous time when the nodes conjuncted a cardinal alignment. Between spring 1968 and summer 1969 (south node conjuncts Uranus in Libra), in 1991 (conjunction north node with Uranus, Neptune and Saturn in Capricorn), in early 1931 (conjunction north node and Uranus in Aries). Other interesting examples: WWII started when south node conjuncted Saturn, and ended when north node conjuncted Saturn in Cancer, Pluto was conjuncted south node in Cancer in the Russian Revolution of 1917, south node conjuncted Uranus and Pluto in Aries in the revolutions of 1847 and 1848, north node conjuncted Saturn and opposed Pluto during the 911 attacks.

A future post will discuss the cycle of the north/south nodes in detail.

Clow's 2010 Sagittarius New Moon Report

http://www.handclow2012.com/astroflash.htm http://www.handclow2012.com/index.htm

    Sagittarius New Moon: December 5, 2010

    12:35 PM EST, Washington, DC

    "It is the New Moon in Sagittarius, our annual fiery awakening. Higher perspectives pierce the mundane world and we can see the truth. Emerging from the deep challenge of Scorpio, we seek meaning in the knowledge we've attained while considering the dark side of life. During Sagittarius, seeing the truth about the dark side can free us from getting caught in the humdrum world. This especially important this year because the previous Moon in Scorpio was just so intense: Pluto, the ruling planet of Scorpio, was conjunct the lunar North Node, and the New Moon was in the middle degrees of Scorpio. And we also entered day Seven of the Galactic Underworld right after the New Moon. Now, this Sagittarius lunation has just the right elements for manifesting the valuable discoveries we've just made to attain the critical leap of Day Seven.

    Going back to the reading for last month's New Moon, our challenge was to achieve emotional clarity so that we could fulfill our spring intentions by fall's completion. Global ceremonies for our entry into Day Seven were conducted to help us begin to function within groups now, not so much as individuals. Our personal emotional clarity seems to be suggesting it is time to really know how we feel about what's happening to everybody. For example, suddenly many people are strenuously objecting to how they are being examined by the TSA at US airports. This budding protest peaked during the Full Moon on November 21, making it a very noticeable example of our struggle to attain Oneness. Then, on November 27, the world was stunned by the second release of diplomatic files by WikiLeaks.

    The Full Moon in 29 Taurus was right on the Pleiades, and Mercury, Mars, and the asteroid Athene (Pallas) were exactly conjunct and approaching the mid-heaven in Washington, DC. Athene is the goddess from the Pleiades who protects wisdom, and the Full Moon awakened her; her back is up in concert with Mercury (awareness) and Mars (personal power). So, on November 27 when Mercury came to the Galactic Center and squared Uranus in 27 Pisces, WikiLeaks released more files creating a collective wave of political scandals amidst the personal struggle over travel. There also was a significant geomagnetic storm on the Sun (G-2 Class) on November 27.

    Planes represent our freedom to travel yet the government mainly uses the TSA to propagate its 9/11-inspired fear program! The TSA is threatening Americans with visual sexual invasion (scanning nudity) and outright sexual abuse (via aggressive pat-downs). Since Sagittarius rules travel, especially flying, this New Moon will intensify the resentment against this bold attempt to steal American dignity. During the previous New Moon in Scorpio, Pluto on the North Node with the New Moon in the middle degrees of Scorpio forced the lingering resentment against the TSA to the surface. Then through the lunar cycle, as Saturn moved into the middle degrees of Libra, people stood up and demanded fairness.

    Regarding the entry into Day Seven, those of us working with Carl Calleman's Mayan Calendar hypothesis expect to see the building Oneness of our species happening through technological maturation. Since the issues with flying are coming up by means of scanners and the diplomatic scandals are occurring by email leaks, I see these events as proof of Calleman's hypothesis! During my ceremony at Wise Awakening in Bellingham, I suggested that good images for this idea might be synchronized flocks of birds and schools of fish. Routing planes by radar systems is a wonderful metaphor for synchronous flocks of flying birds, and our personal flying experiences are grouped as we flow along. We all want to know that those who fly with us do not intend to harm us, and we expect to be treated humanely for a service that we pay for. We want to be grouped, not groped!

    Meanwhile, the diplomatic exposures could cause some people to wonder: would ending the Western attack on the East be the way to regain our security? Terrorist organizations have publicly stated that they are tricking the West into spending its resources on security. Who is winning the E/W struggle? The TSA was created immediately after 9/11, and many passengers resent it because they sense that it has little to do with their protection. TSA boldly militarizes the US while lining the pockets of security companies. There should be a Congressional investigation into who is making money on airline security. Underlying all these suspicions is the fact that the real story about who created 9/11 has been suppressed, and many Americans want the truth to be revealed. Without processing that watershed event, the US is losing its freedom because people are paralyzed by fear. The hideous shots of nude bodies on the scanners remind some people of Jews being marched into gas chambers during WWII.

    With this fiery Moon in Sagittarius, the lid is coming off government intimidation in general. This issue is global because much of the world looks to the US to be a light of liberty. Ironically, the New York Times has already run an editorial that suggests that the leaks make Obama look good as a leader, but, generally, the leaks are transforming many world leaders into Disney-like cartoon characters, who enjoy playing games while the people suffer. The disturbances over the TSA and WikiLeaks will spread globally into anger over other issues, such as: being forced to pay taxes for adventuresome wars while jobs and homes disappear at home; frustration with banker profiteering; and dismay over the glaring deterioration of people in public office. The no-win quality of these issues is causing many to think of themselves as members of abused groups, which is the first stage of revolution. Threatening to take away our right to fly unless we first submit to sexual abuse is getting people to band together, since this outrageous abuse of power resonates with all the other sexual abuse acts so recently committed by people we trusted.

    These core breakthroughs are hot right now with Chiron (clearing the core wound) conjunct Neptune (melting our boundaries). Most people feel terribly vulnerable right now. Think of it! Just when the conjunction has been the tightest over a the last few months, thousands if not millions of people who have not yet cleared their own hidden sexual abuse issues find themselves going nuts when the TSA goes after their genitals! The airports are now more dangerous than the rectories and confessionals!

    The New Moon in Sagittarius describes how we will discover ourselves within our main group: the human species. So, I will read the chart looking for how the planets can inspire us to move into Oneness by means of technology, even including the TSA scanners and the diplomatic emails! The New Moon is in 13 Sagittarius in a tight sextile to Saturn in 15 Libra, so our highest perspective on freedom is disciplined and very harmonious. Saturn's sextile to the New Moon announces we are free beings-for example, free to fly and free to control our own lives when we are ready. Saturn in 15 Libra is conjunct the USA Saturn in 15 Libra, so we are experiencing the eighth USA Saturn Return; it is no accident the scanners are being pushed first in the US. The conflict over them will probably mean other countries will not be stupid enough to buy into them. As more countries go bankrupt, there will be more pressure to stop the fear program and to return to sanity.

    Since fiery liberty is our issue right now, we turn to Uranus, the ruler of transformation and freedom. Uranus-conjunct-Jupiter squares Mars on the Galactic Center in the tenth house cast for Washington, DC. This square to Mars indicates great tension with America's "enemies." Uranus conjunct Jupiter is exact for the last time on January 4, 2011, so this energy is building and peaking. It involves stretching and expanding our transformations, and it causes people to stretch themselves so that they can change and grow. Jupiter's ruling planet is Sagittarius, so now that we come to the final phase of this conjunction, we can see that it is about transforming ourselves by means of travel, especially flying, and about seeing the truth about our global world. So, the battle over government intrusion of our rights is huge, and with the square to Mars in Sagittarius on the ultimate freedom gate–the Galactic Center–this battle is very transformative. Mars on the Galactic Center wants us to take our cosmic powers, and the square to Jupiter/Uranus says we have to transform beyond silly limitations, such as having a few Elite power brokers run the whole world.

    The freedom movement will not be backing off with Pluto conjunct Mercury in Capricorn on the lunar North Node, which means people will see the truth about the structures that rule their lives. They will act on the truths they see because the lunar North Node is finishing its karmic phase of changing structures before the North Node moves into Sagittarius in February 2011. The North Node in Sagittarius will inspire total evolutionary advancement during the end of the Mayan Calendar. The North Node will be on the Galactic Center during March/April 2011, just when the Universal Underworld time acceleration begins! Wow!

    Mars on the Galactic Center sextile Venus in early Scorpio favors balance between males and females as we become more group conscious. Venus in Scorpio pushes us to be honest because when we lie to ourselves, things crash around us, such as the economic basis of world powers. This is a good month to take these collapses very seriously, since they say something about how we're really feeling. As for what the TSA is trying to foist on the public, I've noticed that men are appalled to see the women's exposure by the scanners, and women are appalled by the male exposure. Well, Venus in Scorpio exactly sextiles the North Node close to Mercury/Pluto, so we see things by feminine intuition, which exposes the dark. Of course, Venus in Scorpio sextiling Mars/North Node/Mercury/Pluto favors more exposure of the diplomatic abuses. This aspect even may flush out a few more abusers in the Roman Catholic system. Or, maybe this aspect will spark a protest movement of married Catholic women who want permission to use condoms for birth control, since now the Pope says male prostitutes can use condoms to avoid AIDS!

    Lastly, Neptune and Chiron are still traveling close together in 26 Aquarius, so the core wounds just keep on being exposed; we all are dissolving and surrendering. The core wound for America is 9/11, so I often wonder if these last days of Chiron/Neptune will flush out the truth. A third release of Elite secrets is coming soon from WikiLeaks, so perhaps this is when we will find out the truth about 9/11? As far as I can see into the quality of Day Seven, we can handle our deep pain more easily when we realize that most everybody else feels it too. We have grown a lot under the influence of Chiron conjunct Neptune since 2008.

    Gemini Lunar Eclipse: December 21, 2010 (Short Reading)

    I expect this whole lunar cycle to be totally unforgettable because this New Moon seed bears fruit during the 29-degree Gemini Lunar Eclipse on December 21. This total eclipse occurs about fifteen hours before the Winter Solstice, so its energy pours right into the winter season. During this eclipse of the Moon, the Sun in 29 Sagittarius is close to the Galactic Center, and Mercury retrograde is combust the Galactic Center. This is awareness!!! It will be totally visible in the US, especially on the West Coast around midnight.

    As many of you know, global ceremonies focused on achieving male/female harmony at the start of Day Seven, and this eclipse indicates we are going to be downloaded with cosmic knowledge about how to return to gender balance. I can feel that using the primary asteroids–Ceres, Juno, Athene, Vesta–will illuminate how we can find Oneness this year.

    During the Lunar Eclipse, Juno exactly opposes Jupiter/Uranus in Pisces. Juno rules deep pain over inner separation from our own sex, which is then reflected outside us. We see this angst when women envy other women and men try to keep other men from their women. This is primary jealousy, an emotion that causes many people to stop doing the important things in their lives while they wallow in jealousy. Jupiter conjunct Uranus in Pisces has been expanding and transforming us into compassionate humans, with the last conjunction in 27 degrees of Pisces on January 4. Next, as Jupiter and Uranus move into Aries, our experiences with expansion and transformation will be bold, challenging, and difficult. So, Juno's exact opposition to Jupiter/Uranus just before their conjunction must be important. Maybe, this Juno complex is the main reason the Elite gets away with leading the people like flocks of sheep; it seems to insidiously sap the personal power of most individuals.

    The opposition of Juno to Jupiter-conjunct-Uranus highlights our problems with separation from our primal selves and forms a grand square to the eclipse line right on the Galactic Center. This suggests that during the potent lunar eclipse, our attainment of compassion could be achieved by healing our own inner sexual identity separation complexes. I ask the men; is your inner male guilt-ridden, sneaky, promiscuous, and mean? Or, are you proud, clear, integral, and kind inside? Women, is your inner woman abused, greedy, jealous, and spiteful? Or, are you free, generous, heart-felt, and kind? Of course, you can determine a lot of the answers by observing your own significant partner.

    The issue I'm bringing up is a perennial one, and this amazing eclipse spotlights the inner healing we need to attain Oneness. Chiron/Neptune are separating because they have done their part, and now we must heal male/female inner separation. Then, mothers and daughters will love each other freely, and fathers and sons will identify with each other and learn skills together. In the fourth dimension (4D), Pluto will release the captured daughters from the Underworld, and Uranus will liberate our sons from wars. In my next reading, we'll consider how this potent eclipse releases right into the Winter Solstice, making it an energetic force we will share during the deep winter.

    The Winter Solstice will be posted by mid-December."
