Tyranny Of The Status Quo, Mars Retrograde, Pluto Retrograde, The Reclamation Of Power

tyranny shutterstock_164135415:15 AM, Saturday morning, and I’m ten miles from the Mexico/Texas border. The palm trees outside my hotel window are damp and sway in the hazy, tropical winds. The sulfuric light and heavy condensation makes them look like strange, sweating, vegetation on a Martian landscape. Just on the other side of the parking lot are acres of budding, GMO laced, stalks of corn. I head downstairs to the hotel’s lobby.

Just after five AM, it’s me, the fish and the talking heads on the big screen. There’s Ben Ferguson, the thirty-four-year-old conservative that makes you want to detest all things conservative. He was the youngest, nationally syndicated talk show host in the US. He’s in his early thirties and vibes like he’s in his early fifties. And there he is, bashing Trump because he dared to speak out about how the game is “rigged” in reference to Trump’s broadsides against the electoral process. Depending upon where you align withTrump he’s been either bitterly complaining about the process like a sore, uninformed loser, or he’s been blowing the lid on how corrupt and conniving the process itself is.

If you are an insider and part of the status quo, Trump’s laments are music to your ears, because the rules were changed to prevent something exactly like this. To prevent an outsider like Trump (even if you don’t think he’s an outsider) from actually doing some damage to the GOP and their inside game—it’s not who we elect—but who they select.

For almost anyone reading this blog, that’s not news. We’ve been sick over rigged elections for years. Whether it’s the faulty two-party-system, or hijacking the national vote via the black box, we know the results are fixed. But what Trump has accomplished has been to point out that even the selection process itself is rigged.

Astrologically, we can see the astral upsetter in Trump’s 10th House, with the Sun/Uranus/TN conjunction in Gemini. Gemini as we all know rules duality and sometimes even duplicity, For the Donald, he is in their world now, and they make up the rules as they go. They are duplicitous. If they want to snatch delegates, they’ll do that in the “name of the party.” And there was young Ben Ferguson, exhorting the conservative mantra; “The rules are the rules and if you don’t know them, tough luck.” What this smug, arrogant, little asshole doesn’t understand is that there is a rising tide, a growing class that doesn’t give a fuck about their rules or their party decorum. From Super Pacs, to Super Delegates, from Florida chads, to Manchurian candidates, people have had enough and little square turds like Ben Ferguson come off like spoiled rich kids who get by on blood and credit lines, parroting the talking points of their Mandarin handlers.

Ferguson and his ilk represent the tyranny of the status quo and they are desperately hanging onto whatever edge they’ve managed to eke out for the last, three centuries.

Whether it’s Trump or any other outsider crashing their party, they will contest their dominant position to the death, because if someone challenges the status quo, on either side, whether it’s Trump or Sanders, their very existence is put to the test. They are at risk for losing it all, because if the status quo falls, they and their programs, platforms and talking points are irrelevant.

The United States is in no mood for the Ben Fergusons of the world and if he was really “down with the people” he’d understand that their wrath and fury is just a few degrees to his right and it’s downright pissed.

Ferguson is that seven-year-old little shit that’s evolved “neener, neener, neener” into a full blown career, stuffed with pious mannerisms and a bankable morality.

Yesterday, both Mars and Pluto went retrograde. I’ve talked about this on my show and with Regina Meredith on Gaia (speaking of Regina, she’ll be in my show this coming Friday 12 Noon, CST).

Both Mars and Pluto are planets of power, raw power. Mars is physical force and Pluto is psychic force. The retreat of both is symbolic and can manifest in a number of ways. From a fundamental sense, the retrograde motion is a retreat, and a potential strategy to reclaim power. From a collective level, the best-case scenario is that Americans grow a pair and understand the nature of power, from the spiritual to the personal. Pluto in Cap of course is the Plutocracy and while Trump has felt the rage of the Left, the Millenials and even the conspirators in his own party, he is not the Plutocracy. Trump hasn’t ascended that high yet.

The Plutocracy is the system that’s changing the rules on the fly, just likereality that changes on the dime in the matrix. As Pluto reverses, we are in the process of reverse engineering our so-called reality and awakening in droves. That’s the big picture. On the small screen, Mars kicks into gear and we’re in looking back, wondering where we gave it all away.

So what do I mean about reclaiming our “power?”

If we are ruthlessly honest with ourselves, we can witness a pattern of giving “It” away, through looking for approval from others, seeking recognition outside of ourselves and investing in celebrity and false idols. We also stab at low hanging fruit in a culture of instant gratification, and become dazzled by endless material distractions.

If we can engage in this process, we can move forward with a greater sense of who we are, in a world that is constantly chipping away at us in so many ways, seen and unseen.

After we challenge our assumptions of who we are and the standards we have accepted for ourselves, something new emerges, a higher standard, a vibration that resonates closer with the power of creation and prime source. It’s giant step towards self-love, which brings us closer to divine love.

When we do this the Status Quo just isn’t terrified, it verges on impotence.

Recently, the film “Vaxxed” hit the film festival circuit, and made national news when Robert DeNiro, father of a boy with autism, decided to show the film at the Tribeca film festival. There was heavy pressure for DeNiro to not show the controversial movie. DeNiro wanted establish a “dialog” and what he got was a verbal beating from the anti-vax community as well as the likely powers that be, which invest billions in the vaccine industry. But there’s a backlash happening and it’s right in the same wheelhouse that the political status quo is operating out of.

The more push back that’s happening, the more fuel it’s adding to fire of awakening and that fire of course is Uranus in Aries and Saturn in Sag. By years end, they will be in a tight trine and the radical impetus of the self to express at an authentic level, will be in alignment with discipline, focus and form.

Many of us are taxed, sapped and zapped, but if we can remove the detritus, unplug from the programs of approval, stop seeking outside of ourselves, we get lighter and as we get lighter, we have more energy, and when we have more energy, we can address our lives from a very different perspective. When we slay the “Status Quo” inside of us, the outer is just a shadow play across the scrim of life. Here’s the trailer for Vaxxed.

Uranus In Aries 20, Conjunct US Chiron In Aries 20, Firefight At Lackland Air Force Base

a-cowboy-gunfightUranus has just hit 20 degrees in the sign of Aries. This is significant on a number of levels and an event today in San Antonio that darkly resonates with this important aspect.

Let’s break it down.

Uranus is the planet of rebellion, novelty and change. Its energy and impact is swift and sudden. Aries is action, energy, the will, sexuality, violence, the army and guns. Since Uranus transited into Aries in 2011, we’ve witnessed a wave of color revolutions (all timed around February, the month of Aquarius/Uranus).. We’ve also seen the ideal and nature of not just the male sex, but humanity turned upside down, which is also Uranian. From Bruce Jenner’s strange transformation to Caitlyn, to the rapid rise of transgender politics, to the oncoming arrival or robots and drones, Uranus in Aries is re-writing the rules of being human. Now I might not be in agreement with them, because I have a quaint notion of what an organic, human being is, but we can clearly see the Uranian mutations at work. These have all taken place in the first two decans.

In the first Decan, which started in 2011 and ended in 2013, we saw Aries in it’s own Decan where the energy is sudden, swift and impactful It’s act first and ask questions later. In addition to the color revolutions, which took place during the bulk of this period, we also saw the Benghazi event, where the US consulate was assaulted in Libya, and the deaths of Americans, Christopher Stephens (Christ sacrifice) and Sean Smith. One of the underlying themes of Benghazi has been Arms (Aries) dealing, which would eventually wind up in the hands of ISIS/ISIL.

In the second Decan, which started in 2013, we moved into the realm of celebrity via the Leo Decan, and it’s here where we deal with the bulk of violent indiscretions in the NFL (Ray Rice, Adrian Peterson, Greg Hardy, Ray McDonald) and of course, the ongoing concussion crisis, manifesting in the film, “Concussion” starring Will Smith. Leo rules our pastimes, and our pantheon of heroes, Apollo incarnate. Enter Bruce Jenner.

As noted in previous blog posts, Jenner, ironically hails from Sandy Hook and like his handler and strange/estranged paramour, Kris Jenner is a Scorpio. In fact, Kris/Caitlyn/Kim are all Scorpios and all three have Pluto in the 10th House, which is plenty of fodder for another post altogether.

Jenner was a Leo hero, an Olympian, and incarnation of Apollo himself, the Sun King and under the gaze of Uranus in Aries, became, well, the Sun Queen. Our heroes were transformed, in many cases, tragically, under the Leo Decan and just as Uranus was about to transit into the Sag Decan, we witnessed the death of Antonin Scalia, Sag deals with law, religion, borders, philosophy and the higher mind.

What’s interesting about this transit is that the US chart has Chiron in Aries in the 4th House of the Sibley Chart, Sag Asc. Of course that’s the wound of the gun and violence. It’s using our sons and daughters (4th House) as cannon fodder for the corporate generals of the military industrial complex. It’s the wounded warrior come home. It’s also gun related violence and while I am not a proponent of gun control, one can see the 200 year-old wound than never heals, whether it’s here or abroad. We’re weary of-violence and it’s impact upon our lives.

Today, right on schedule, there was a shoot out, just south where I live in San Antonio, on an Air Force base, where two people were killed and the base has been on lockdown all morning. This is thoroughly indicative of the Uranus transit to natal Chiron in Aries—there’s more coming.

Over the past few days, there’s been crazy chatter about nuke powered drones piloted by ISIS coming out of the White House. There’s also new nuke deals done by the Obama administration as well. And, we cannot forget to mention that Indian Point, the nuclear power plant that supplies New York with energy is in dis-repair, a ticking time bomb, an executive order for martial law just waiting to happen. Uranus rules uranium and in the 3rd Decan, with supposed religious differences coming to the fore, extremist factions with dirty nukes, or explosive weapons resembling them enter into the discussion.

I’m not here to spell doom and destruction, I’m not a prophet of dark visions, but I am here to figuratively diffuse situations by shining the light of awareness on where we are.

On a personal level, we’re crying out for more freedom, more personal expression and ironically, more accountability. Over the next two years, with Uranus in Aries in the 3rd Decan, more and more people will be asserting themselves in the quest for personal and spiritual liberation and no, one, faction will have the sole right to do so. But the litmus, the deciding factor in all of this is the ongoing pursuit of truth and while this is an entirely subjective enterprise for most, there are deep down, common threads that bind us all together and we’d better start weaving them into a new tapestry of the human experience pretty damned soon, or we’ll be at each others throats, much to the pleasure of the puppet masters of antiquity.
Editor’s Note, the Sun enters Aries, 20 degrees, tomorrow, where it will conjunct Uranus on the USA Chiron at 20 degrees.

Uranus In Aries Recycling, Fascism, World Wars, Cool Tech Toys, & New Scapegoats

ballet1Fractured images of the “Ballet Mecanique.”

Uranus is in a new cycle. This is significant. On April 1st, 1927, Uranus entered the sign of Aries. It was April Fool’s Day. Not much happened on April Fool’s Day, but in the following week, some of the most monumental, far reaching and reverberating events of the 20th Century took place.

• April 4th: Colonial Air Transport inaugurated the first regularly scheduled airline service in America, carrying six passengers on a flight that departed Boston at 6:15 pm and landed near New York City (at Hadley Field, New Jersey), at 9:00 pm. The first ticket was sold to Mrs. Gardiner Fiske for 25 dollars.

• The Urdu language daily newspaper, Inqilab, described as a periodical that that “changed the course of Muslim politics… of the entire Indo-Pakistan subcontinent” was founded by Ghulam Rasul Mehr and Abdul Majid Salik. The paper, which lasted until 1949, two years after Pakistan attained independence.

That was just one day. Here we have the launch of personal, scheduled, air travel and the marriage between Islam, the mass media and politics.

• April 6th: An explosion at the refinery of Producers & Refiners Oil Company killed 13 employees and broke almost all of the windows in the company town of Parco, Wyoming. (This mirrors the explosion at Fukushima which occurred in the transition from Uranus in Pisces to Aries in 2011).

• April 7th: At 3:25 in the afternoon, the Bell Telephone Company made the first successful demonstration of long distance mechanical television transmission, transmitting a 30 line image at the rate of 10 images per second with the aid of a system using the rotating Nipkow disc. Herbert Hoover (at that time the U.S. Secretary of Commerce appeared before a camera in Washington, and as he spoke over a loudspeaker by telephone to AT & T President Walter S. Gifford, Hoover could be observed on a 2 by 3-foot (0.91 m) television screen by an audience in New York. Hoover told the group, “Human genius has now destroyed the impediment of distance, in a new respect, and in a manner hitherto unknown.” The breakthrough in the invention of a completely electronic television system would take place five months later on September 7. Hoover’s speech was followed by the first American television entertainment, a performance (from a studio in Whippany, New Jersey) by vaudeville comedian “A. Dolan”, who appeared as an Irishman and then donned blackface for a minstrel show act. (This is not one of America’s finest moments).

• April 8th: The beam wireless service was inaugurated between Sydney and London by Amalgamated Wireless Company, allowing messages to be sent at the speed of light at the unprecedented distance of more than 10,000 miles (16,000 km). Using shortwave radio, messages could be sent by telegraph between the two locations.

• April 10th: Ballet Mécanique, composed by George Antheil, was given its American premiere at Carnegie Hall, and booed and hissed by the crowd. Combining classical music with the sounds of machinery (including factory whistles, elevated trains, canning machinery, and airplanes), but no dancers, the ballet had debuted in Paris on June 19, 1926, and was not performed again for more than sixty years.

So, let’s just wrap our heads around this for a moment. In just ten days, they witnessed the birth of TV, the wireless transmission, the inauguration of personal flight and a ballet that celebrated the oncoming machine age of the 20th Century. There was the mediafication of Islam and this other little tidbit that I left out; The rise of the communist party in China. All, in just over a week.

This rocket ride into the future was just getting started. From 1927 to 1934, Uranus’ seven-year-arc in Aries produced just about every important technological innovation of the 20th Century. It also saw the rise of various forms of Fascism. From Hitler, to Mussolini, to Mao, the singularity of the great man ascended over the planet. Of course, there were sacrifices, many that would occur as a result. The actual wars themselves didn’t really get stirred up until Uranus went into Taurus, because all wars are about resources, human or otherwise. But the parallels of our time, the initiation of the next Uranus cycle is here.

Uranus in Aries ushered in one of the bloodiest centuries on record and one of the most technological advanced as well. How could we not capture all the blood and guts without grabbing the attention of the masses and traumatizing them, from the movies houses and newsreels of the 30’s and 40’s to the embedded reporters on the front lines of Nam, the burning of the Branch Davidians and the fall of the Twin Towers, repeated over and over and over again.

Well it’s all cycling back, returning again. ISIS is the new Third Reich. Islam is the new Nazism and the sexy tech that’s been R&D’d for the past five-years, will hit very soon. From drones, to self-driving cars, to appliances that spy on you, to wearable tech, it’s all going to come at you at warp speed. We even have a new class of scapegoats this go round and it’s not the Muslims. The Muslims are just a tool, a ploy to whip White America into a frenzy, fury and fear. No, the real sacrifices are the Christians, who are literally getting their heads handed to them in Syria and figuratively here in the states. It’s cool to hate, mock and disparage Christians. You can get away with it, without any sort of punishment as hate speech and it’s flimsy protection apparently doesn’t extend to them.

Islam is the new red threat brought to you by the likes of Pamela Geller and other, frothing Zionists who want you to look in any direction save that of Tel Aviv. They are creating the threat, while the powers that be play the greatest scam of cognitive dissonance ever. On the one hand, the executive in chief tells us again and again that the goal is to destroy ISIS, but never once mentions radical and Islam in the same breath. Meanwhile, Trump wants to shut it all down and members of the press are accusing him of being the new Hitler, while promoting a brand of American Fascism.

It’s all part of the new Uranus cycle, replete with the reanimation of threats, victims and the invocation of a new world war.

Haven’t we seen this already? Aren’t we hip to the game? The persecutors are still the same, they’re just shifting the blame, finding new scapegoats, creating more of a divide and conquer dynamic than ever before.

Take back your own power. Sift through their lies and deceptions. Don’t let them fractionalize you or anyone else. Don’t be a pawn in their game.

Uranus In Aries Overload, Virgo Overabundant, Balance In The Mix And The Boy With The Robohand

In the future, athletes will have devices attached to them, tracking their every move on the field of play, where the data is compiled and funneled into the virtual cloud, which descends as digital downpours into mainframes, sifting, processing and formatting the data for a variety of purposes, some stated, others not. Well that future is right now. In a move that thoroughly embodies the spirit of Uranus in Aries, the NFL has employed what they call, “Next Gen Stats.” Essentially, every player has a Fitbit styled chip affixed to their gear and said chip tracks everything, from heart rate, to to how fast they run, to how far they run, to who know what else. That’s every player. They then compile the stats and spit them back out to the public, sometimes in game, sometimes later, after they’ve crunched the data. Uranus is technology and Aries is soldiers and athletes.

Wearable tech is nothing new. A watch, in it’s purest and simplest forms is wearable tech. Back in the nineties, I used to wear a watch that doubled as a real time ephemeris and gave me updates on own chart. But the degree that the tech can derive information from us, including our biological functions has exploded. In a country obsessed with stats, data and trivia, this kind of information is like crack for numbers geeks and it gets people used to the fact that tracking isn’t just normal but really cool and fun. It’s the slow boil. Continue reading “Uranus In Aries Overload, Virgo Overabundant, Balance In The Mix And The Boy With The Robohand”

Uranus in Aries Square Pluto In Capricorn, Friday The 13th, The Gnostic Christ, Timelines, Timelords, Dreaming And Awakening

Christ_Consciousness__46661_zoomActivating the timeless code

And so it begins. On the day cursed by the Templars in honors of Jacques DeMolay’s arrest and subsequent death on Friday, October 13th, 1307, the final square between Uranus and Pluto initiates the last, major cycle of catalysis. Imagine the ward of planetary fields torqueing at angles of extreme disruption and potential, magnetic fields in dynamic collision, with Mars riding on tip of it all, whipping the celestial surge into a potent and dynamic field of transformation. This is where we are as we head into our own version of the Hadron collider, anticipating the Solar Eclipse, New Moon and Vernal Equinox all on one, burning day in the not-so-distant-future. Then, shortly, thereafter, a Blood Moon on Passover—are you ready for it? Even if you aren’t, well, it doesn’t matter. We’re all learning on the fly anyway in the post-history of the world that no one ever managed to tell you ended.

When I was back in Boulder last week, Jay Weidner surfaced a topic we had talked about before, briefly, that the world as we knew it did indeed change on 12/21/12, but not in the way that we could have foreseen. His premise (which I agree with) was the subtle, but pervasive awakening that is rippling through our collective awareness. People are getting wise. They are seeing the fracturing fractals of our pixilated reality. The world is on dial up and we’re fiber-optically connected into the grid of creation. There is a beauty and a danger to this potent epiphany, and that the world is an illusion and yet it is deadly real. We’re playing for keeps and yet we’re not. This is the sublime paradox of the liminal state. Continue reading “Uranus in Aries Square Pluto In Capricorn, Friday The 13th, The Gnostic Christ, Timelines, Timelords, Dreaming And Awakening”

Adrian Peterson’s Aries Stellium Explodes With The Uranus/Mercury Opposition And The Eye Of Horus Casts It’s Gaze Across The Plains Of Babylon, First Time Reading Special

blg 37 vikings cowboysPeterson’s Pater Sins

The giant, Red Eye, swiveled and locked in on Adrian Peterson this past week. Peterson, was born on 3/21/85. That’s just one degree off the astrological new -year, aka Aries 1. It’s one of the most powerful degrees of the zodiac. Its pure, undifferentiated will. If you have ever seen Peterson run with a football, you’ll see that degree clearly in action. He is the unstoppable force that very few unmovable objects have been able to deter. He bounced back from a devastating knee injury in record time to run the football almost further than anyone else in one season. And up until last year, Peterson had managed to avoid many of the pitfalls that other players had descended into. There has never been any talk of drugs, recreational or performance based around AP. He was never caught with any guns at the airport. He wasn’t doing tequila shots off stripper’s booties on a lake cruise like some of his former teammates. In essence, AP was pretty clean—until last year.

In the middle of the season, Peterson left the team to attend the funeral of his son. On the surface, this sounds tragic, and it was, but not for the obvious reasons. The boy was just two and had never met Peterson. In fact, he had just recently found out that it was his son; thanks to a paternity test he had to take. The circumstances surrounding the boy’s death are cloudy and charges have been filed, but what we do know, is that there was serious neglect. That death, attending the funeral of a child he never knew and had just recently became aware of was just the first step in Peterson’s strange and very public odyssey.
