A funny thing happened on the way to writing this post. I got tested on my own theories/thoughts/mind jam. I had an explosive day. Site went down, dealing with human robots, jumping through hoops of napalm to get it re-launched, blood pressure rising, barium and aluminum levels spiking. Leases, deadlines, debt, ex-wife all piling up like an LA Freeway clusterfuck. And guess what? I’m not alone. I’m out there slam dancing against everyone else’s crises and unresolved dark matter. I guess that’s what happens when you live in a world where Debbie Harry can be Ann Romney and you can be a cellographic life form on another world living a simultaneous existence. In other words, God was making me live up to my own Zen commandments.
When you live in a place where your Pluto is on the Asc, crisis goes to red level threat.
But then, something else takes place after the fires are cooled and the heat subsides. A new form takes shape. But being in the vulcanizer is not a joyride in Hill Country with the windows down and Willie Nelson on the radio. We discover who we truly are when psychic compression takes hold.
I de-friended and then re-friended a dear soul and longtime supporter of the site over some buried frustrations and resentment, which by the way was the theme of the day. Did I do it in accordance with my own rules of disengagement? Likely not. But this is where we are right now. Thoughts and emotion are the light and aperture of our experiential lens. The images of our lives are the composite of both. Long tale short–I am humbled–hopefully a little wiser. Here’s how the post goes.
When Gurdjief used to welcome new initiates into “The Work” he would stage a big dinner with many courses of food, but even more importantly, copious amounts of vodka and wine. Gurdjief would then lead his new charges on a series of toasts to fools, every time either taking a drink of wine or a shot of vodka. While his newbie charges would get blindly drunk, the master himself was drinking water disguised as vodka. He would then sit back and watch the egos, demons and shadows come out to play. It was there that he knew where the weakness, pride, vulnerability and arrogance would reside in each individual. From that point forward, he would then test them over and over again based on his observations.
In the enneagram, a system that Gurdjieff himself had invented, he was an 8, a dominant character bordering on petty tyranny when things could get a little charged. This model of leadership has been the norm for most of the 20th Century, an era where sociopaths have imposed their wills upon the rest of the planet, aided and abetted by those with vast fortunes seeking to slice and dice racial groups, borders, sexes and religions.
As we look around us, that old model is collapsing as statist figureheads such as Chavez, Gadhafi and Assad have been either murdered or removed by stealth contagion. In their place the nameless govern. Who runs Libya or Egypt at present? A figurehead of the Muslim Brotherhood, they are ruling by proxy for a global governance.
Here in this country, even Barack Obama, one of the world’s most powerful figures, whether you like him or not, has a leadership model that’s markedly different than his processor, GW Bush. And while it may reek of a certain type of cognitive dissonance where on the one hand, he appears flexible, diplomatic, suave and cool, on the other he consistently undermines the projection of his own principles by signing more and more bills and EO’s that are not in the least congruent with his persona. “Leading from behind” and “reaching a global consensus” before countries are plundered are models that are in alignment with the persona of the new leadership, even if they are being used to manipulate and deceive the masses into transferring their trust.
Apparently Obama, based the birth records that we have for him is a “Projector” in Human Design. According to the late, Ra Uru Hu, founder of HD, the style and strategy of the projector is the new model of leadership for the planet. Up until the 21st Century it was the iron fist of the “Manifester” that carved out countries, corporate empires and dynasties, for better or worse.
The difference between the projector and the manifester is the aspect of will.
Manifesters proclaim and announce what they are going to do, while the seemingly meeker projector must wait for the invitation. The latter model is contradictory to what we’ve been taught about leadership, but what the projector is capable of doing, whereas the manifester is limited, is taking on energy. The projector, which theoretically has zero energy of it’s own, can channel huge amounts of it when aligned. This is why Obama’s public events have the aura of a revival or some spiritual service rather than a public address. He’s channeling huge amounts of human energy that resembles love, devotion, faith, etc. Also, it’s vitally important that projectors do not put themselves in environments that are fractious, angry or negative, because they will also take on and amplify those energies as well. Notice how Obama rarely, if ever is put into a situation where he must argue, debate or defend his policies against informed critics. It just doesn’t happen. Bush II had more Rose Garden press conferences in one year, than Obama has had in six.
Of course, this merely a strategy to limit any kind of real discourse, but on a subtle energy level, it’s also congruent with the conscious manipulation of energy and space that would protect the projector.
Half way across the world, Kim Jong Un was the poster child for April Fools, threatening the US with missiles and nukes. Jong is an old school tyrant and born on the same date as Elvis and Bowie (Jan 8th) he has a bit of showman in him; Tyranny in style, partying with another fool, Dennis Rodman, while watching The Harlem Globetrotters, the court fools of hoops. It’s yet another showdown of the individual (Jong) versus the collective as embodied through the energy of a focal point of consciousness, for better or worse in Obama.
So as we say adieu to the day of fools and move resolutely ahead in the sign of Aries, with Mercury finally joining the party on tax day . How does each sign shape up for the month ahead? How can you find your own brand of leadership, self-rule and sovereignty in a world where the notion of power is changing and the true Aquarian impulse of planet populated by people accessing their inner authority are approaching the Alpha Point. Read on as we explore self-rule, leadership and directed energy for each sign in April.
Before we get to all signs, I am having a Spring Cleaning special on readings. All one hour readings are $66 for first time clients. Email me at: email@example.com to make an appointment.
When it comes to leadership and will, you’d like to think that you wrote the manual while shaving, but the fact of the matter is, is that even you need to re-assess your game in the changing flux of the holographic essence of autonomous liberation (aka HEAL). Now don’t despair, because even you can attain/retain a leadership role of a paradigm shift within a paradigm shift. With Jupiter highlighting alternative energies, alternative ideologies, alternative identities, you can easily find yourself trying on new strategies that are closer to the pure practice of the Tao than ever before. Ramming ahead just doesn’t get you as far as it used to. Look to your celestial other, Libra for clues. Weigh all things equally, factor in all the variables, check your ego at the door, cross your heart and allow choice to emanate through every cell of your being. Uranus is demanding a new approach to expressing your vital energy. It’s not more of the same, nor is it Aries fueled by a nitrous and meth hit off of a vaporizer that purifies and cools the rush to your head. No, it’s about re-inventing yourself as the consummate leader without ever having to make demand upon another. We’re talking deep flow here, because if you don’t get it like this, those agents of the matrix in dark hats and suits via Pluto in Capricorn will awaken from their borg-like trance and remind you that only the purest, laser-like expression of your distilled essence is what it will take to pass through an eye of a needle. You may think I’m kidding, but this might be the most important month of your life. Get real. Go clear. Show the rest of us how it’s done.
Did you know that one of the most exalted degrees for Taurus is 3 degrees of the Moon? Do you know why? Because it’s a secret code that’s a portal to Alcyone. Through the third degree of the Moon in Taurus, through the eye of the bull in Aldeberan, through to the great central sun of Alcyone in Sirius, the mystery begins to reveal itself. I’m diverging just a bit. We’re to talk about you and power. Later this month the Sun ambles into your sign and the Bull prepares us for the Uranus/Pluto Square that takes place in zero degrees Gemini. There’s some revelation in this process and sequence. For you, true power is revealed in the setting of elements in place, an ordering of the physical realm that allows you to tap into any good, or substance at your disposal. Witches, who have a deep affinity with the sign of Taurus, are quite familiar with this process. They surround themselves with their familiars, fetishes, herbs and tinctures, calling upon them when needed to bind or heal. Take a lesson from them and get your world in order. Clean, clear, organize, file, collate, etc. Master your physical reality to the best of your ability this month. There’s a supreme sense of confidence and well being, knowing that you car thoroughly grounded and connected with everything you need, at any given moment. Out of this earthy order, confidence arises and you meet the world on solid terms, day in, day out, providing strength, support and stability for others and a calm mastery for yourself. Then, from there, it’s all about stepping up, stepping up, stepping up. You go as high as your solid base allows. This is the month that urges you to find the axis-mundi of relationship to things, especially your body. Cellular gnosis and the comprehension of the one-in-all, through all, in your personal connection to your physical form is it. Know it. Own it. Love it. Be it.
GEMINI It seems like five years since Jupiter danced into your sign and yet we’re almost a 1/4 of the way through 2013. Gemini represents the bifurcation of reality, timeline switches and temporal jumps. With Jupiter in your sign, you should, theoretically been having a crash course about the new models of power for you. Maybe you learned a new skill that you’re sharing with others or at the very least, sharing your experience of it. Your power comes in spreading information and knowledge, not hoarding it. Turn it loose. Let it go. How much more do you need? Many of the keys to each sign’s power lies in their opposites. So for you Gem, you need to take a page out of the Sag playback. Once you’ve accumulated enough data, it’s time to let it go where it needs to go. This doesn’t mean that you don’t get paid or rewarded for all your hard work. Au contraries. In fact, you need to get some compensation. Turning a hobby or avocation into a paying gig is one way of doing it. But also, if you are really in the flow, you’ll use your mental acumen when and where it’s needed, because that’s just what you do. Saturn is urging you to get diagnostic. Roll up your sleeves and come down from your clinical, ivory tower this month. Rally support from your friends and if you have a project of any sort that involves social networking, turn it loose. This is your month to make connections and create waves of support. Better push the envelope while Jupiter is still in your sign. You have a couple of months left. Stay busy in all the right ways.
The sign that takes a licking but keeps on ticking. Somewhere, after Pluto has left Capricorn in the dust and moved onto a higher plane, you’ll al get your own planet where you can build houses, weave, cook, make babies, tinctures and salves. Kind of like Earth. Yes, there’s a joke in there somewhere, but the cruel reality is that the first water sign, the one that is associated with amniotic fluids and primary emotional states is getting the brunt of the tough stuff right now and with the coming square, it doesn’t get a whole lot easier. Your patience isn’t tried, it’s tired. You need a rest, A real rest and yet, like the rest of us, you’re on this wheel, a hell bent death ride, spinning at an estimated 913 MPH or for you Metric types, roughly 1,470 KPH. Sapped, depleted, strained, exhausted, overworked and frayed, how does one achieve or realize power and leadership? The essence lies in the design of your sign. You need to retreat. Retreat is an interesting word. It can be interpreted in three, separate ways. There’s the military version of retreat, which allows an army to re-trench and come up with a different game plan, Then there’s the spiritual version of retreat, which is detaching from the world and all of it’s distractions. Then there’s the re-treat or giving oneself another treat, or allowing oneself to be good and kind to itself again and to treat him or herself to anything the self truly needs. Here is where your power is for now. This is where your ability to take the lead in your own life is taking shape. I know it’s been a rough stretch for you. From Pluto in Cap, to Saturn in Libra, to Uranus in Aries, the heavyweight planets have not been easy nor very kind, but you’re so close now. Just a few more weeks till Jupiter moves into your sign and you’ll be sensing the currents of positive change, a new flow entering into your life. Keep in mind that crabs must attach themselves to rocks and cliffs as the ocean pounds them with wave after wave of surging pressure exploding into air. The tides will soon be turning and when they do your confidence and faith in life will begin to be restored. Trust me.
When discussing power, the old model versus the new, you would seem to come up as a harbinger of the past, loving and yet slightly autocratic, looking for praise and support for your ideas, pollens and projects. In April, the energies offer you a different opening of sorts. Your challenge is to understand the difference between being self-centered and centered in self. You’re on a crash course to R&D what you think is the best for you versus what’s best for the group or even society at large. It can be challenging at times to try to fit yourself in small spaces by accommodating others more often than you’d like. But I’m going to give you the green light to move ahead and do what YOU want over the course of the next three weeks. The reason being, is that you are going to encounter some stiff resistance in May when Saturn and the Sun square off against you. Challenges at home and work will crop up and demands will be, well, demanding. So you want to soak up as much juice as you can as the Sun returns in all its might and glory to the northern hemisphere. The stewardship of power, once you lock it down is reflected in your opposite sign, Aquarius, which invites you to think about and contribute to the greater good. To be in service of the construction of the cathedral of the soul as manifest in a more egalitarian world. You’ll encounter some of that in May too. But for now, follow your instincts and do what’s best and most right for you, regardless of what others think.
Power and leadership aren’t always synonymous with your sign. But in many ways, you most reflect the model of the projector in all of the western zodiacal signs. You’re an energy worker whether you consciously know and accept it or not. Virgo’s can enter a room and immediately sense the vibe, feeling and where the sources of power are emanating from. Again, this can be seen in the conscious application of it’s opposite sign, Pisces, which, when embodied by Virgo on a conscious level, provides a psychic and intuitive field of awareness. Virgo can then use this extra-sensory-perception to have yet more info of the environment at its disposal. So the key here, is to allow yourself to feel into people, places and situations and CHOOSE, which one is the best fit for you. This is slightly contrary to the Virgo’s sense of duty and purpose and yet, when honed and refined, allows the Virgo native to truly thrive in atmosphere where their contributions are deeply appreciated. This type of gratitude and recognition allows Virgo to continue to refine the process of choosing, selecting the best situations and relationships, honing and honoring its ability to discern. In April this mostly applies to your chosen avocation. Ask yourself if you are in the right place with the right people. Are you being recognized for the output of your contribution, not in an egoic sense, but in a way that values your contribution. We all know how challenging it is to find gainful employment during these times and yet, this month urges you to make changes that are aligned with your deeper purpose.
Brace yourself as the Cardinal frequencies of Uranus and Pluto approach (again). You’re being asked to make more changes to style of partnering and how you set goals for yourself and either attain them or don’t. The great gift and tragedy of Libra is that it sees so clearly that it never has to do anything but allow for the perfected image of the relationship or project or city of tomorrow to be more than just that. It must be some sort of holdover from Atlantis where people could literally think things into form. But this month is different. You’ve got to move Libra. You’ve got to take action. Not only is it part of the formula where your astro-other holds the key, but this month in particular demands it. And where might you ask? Relationships for starters. But it’s not just one-on-one relating with lovers, mates, etc. It’s about completion. It’s about the relationship to all the things unfinished in your head. You’ve got to nail them down. Get them done. Because there is an inherent power in bringing these ideas into form. You lead by showing the world that you are not just a dilettante. You have substance and more importantly, you have follow-through. The greatest sin in your life would be to not risk shattering the image of perfection in your mind’s eye and yet, that’s what is called. Liberation from the ideal into the real mirrors the process of incarnation. April gives you ample opportunity to complete that process.
You wrote the book on power. To bad you stashed it so far away in a place that no one else can get to, that sometimes even you have a hard time figuring out where it went. Well that’s not what’s on the table now. With Saturn in your sign, you’re being prompted to bear down on your physical reality in ways that you haven’t for years. This could be everything from getting into shape to taking up some sore of physical trade or profession. A Scorpio I know on FB has enrolled in massage school and is relishing the opportunity to learn about the body’s various systems, while putting her hands on the body and working it out. Here we see the astrological opposite being invoked through Taurus via the embodiment of consciousness and life force. Of all the signs, you are the one whose challenge to access it is to bring it out of the shadowy realm of the psyche into body itself. Saturn is here to remind you of that process and in retrograde, for all Scorps, it’s a reminder of when you struggled and fought with it all, the overwhelming desire, the frustration, the turning away from a world in all it’s trivial pursuits. With this entire Aries crisscrossing the sky, you’re also being moved to find a way to use your super powers to make a difference in the lives of others. At the end of the month, Saturn draws the closest to the Earth this year than at any other time, which means the spotlight is on you. You’re the very best at handling pressure, step up and let the life force simply flow through as you literally and figuratively touch peoples lives.
Now that all almost all that Pisces drip has left your home base (any flooding?) you can get back on your pony and ride sally ride (no not the astronaut). The energy returns in a big way and your creativity gets a serious spark. In April, you’re the fire starter. When it comes to power and new models of leadership, for you, in all of your completeness, we go to your opposite sign, where your ruling planet is there in abundance. Sag is the big picture, the grand statement, the overarching cosmology and Gemini is its particulars, broken down, classified and categorized. We can see this in the religious experience, which occurs when revelation (the vision) becomes scripture (the word). Here in Austin, at UT, the Gutenberg Bible rests under glass, vacuum-sealed and as close to eternal as it gets. It’s the marriage of Sag/Gem in allegorical and alchemical union, all wrapped up in one, antiquarian bundle. For you to really own your essence, you need to break it down, have the patience and discipline to get it on paper, canvas, computer screen, tablet, cave wall, whatever medium is closest to your inner flame. Because, like Libra in some regard, you can be just fine with the brilliance of a wondrous epiphany, but for you to really, really, get it, to bring it all home and walk through the world in all of your integrated splendor, you must write it down, get it out, have a record that you were here, no matter what your audience, even if you have one thinks of your work. Fellow Sag, William Blake knew this all-too-well. Blake was hardly known at all during his time on Earth. Wordsworth, a contemporary of his was the equivalent of poet laureate, while Blake toiled in obscurity, known in his heart that what he was doing was for a generation yet to come that would understand and appreciate his massive effort. Blake was engaged in the notion of eternity. Another Sag, Jim Morrison finally got this when he published his poems and then not long after that died. There’s a theme here and it’s bringing the big idea into form. Connecting the two poles allows you to walk in power. April kick starts this process in a big way. Even with Saturn whispering at your soul, informing you of shadows and ghosts, you can turn those apparitions into art. Just do it.
The violence of the Aries Sun has been squaring off against Pluto in your sign and the results have been dramatic and intense weather. As the Sun tries to break free and liberate itself from it’s own chains and ancient karma, it’s opening coronal portals like wounds, bleeding neutrinos across space and time, whipping up storms from Mercury to Pluto and beyond. You would be feeling this cosmic drama more than any other sign, since you’ve been engaged in this soul torqueing since 2009 when Pluto moved into your sign. Ego, power, violence, the drive and lust to get better, better, have more, arrive and succeed has been your motivation, even if it has not resulted in blind and naked psychopathology. Once you admit this, you can move two steps forward. As society and culture at large is being flogged and whipped by roving gangs of international bankers, as bank accounts are drained and emptied, as draconian laws have been enacted, this has all been an outgrowth of Pluto’s monasticism in your sign. Ironically, Pluton in Capricorn has unleashed a cancer upon our world. It’s called “toxic debt.” So the really big question is; What are you gonna do about it? Yes, Pluto is there for you to tap into power in really interesting ways, but for you to not morph into old school petty tyranny. Enter Cancer. The key for you to flow in pure zen-like-tao-ashe-chi-orgone perfection is to simply feel. Open your soul to the prospect that while your 401K still has a pulse, other folks out there are having a bit of a rough go of it. With all that Aries action going down in your foundation, you might want to spend a little time helping out in a homeless shelter, feeding some kids or even get this, starting a foundation of your own. Compassion is the key for you to walk in power. Stay close to it, and you’ll never stray too far from source. And, no matter how great your achievement, remain humble, because I have to tell yak, when Pluto and Uranus square off in May, you’ll get any unchecked arrogance knocked right out of you.
When I think of you this month, the image I get is seeing a person consumed by the idea that one, really great thought can change the world. This “revolutionary” concept is pretty darn close to your raison d’être. You were born to break rules and flaunt convention and this month, those principles are burning a hole in your third eye. However, Saturn is rightfully tempering you just a bit. It’s making sure that your motivation for change is as clear as it can be. Saturn is checking your intentions, especially as you try to bring your radical concepts to the public at large. I would say that your biggest test is making sure you’ve really worked out all the bugs. Thus type of R&D isn’t just a technical workout, but a spiritual one too. One of the great temptations of the Aquarian mindset is that even if a few people have to suffer or die as a result of massive change for the good of all, that those sacrifices are just part of the deal. This was the ideology espoused by the Weather Underground in the 60′s and the 70′s. If a few “innocent” Americans died in order to overthrow the oppressive regime, then so be it. Social change comes at a cost, but no cost is too great for the ultimate goal. It’s a type of strange and dissociative compassion that borders on madness. So if you want to escape the chains of this psychopathology, long and even short term, we’re talking this month in particular here, you need to have a dialog with your opposite sign; Leo. Leo rules kings and queens (which you dearly love to depose) but it also rules the heart and any revolutionary concept without including and opening the heart runs the risk of looking a lot more like a bloody coup without conscience than an idea which enables sovereign status in all and through all. This type of deep, inclusionary integration allows you to advance that one, great thought, faster and higher than you could ever imagine.
Speaking of ideas . . .they’re not really what drives Pisces. Nope. What drives Pisces is essence, aura, the liminal. But because Pisces is so deeply spiritual and permeable, they, more than any other sign are open to forms of possession, subtle and otherwise. In April, you need to get down, down, down, to the bottom of the ground as Jo Baker and Annie Sampson sang it out in Stoneground. Literally, lose your mind. Go outside and plant some flowers and veggies. Take up sandbox therapy. Finger paint. Bake. Do whatever it takes to shift your focus and attention away from phantoms, ghosts and apparitions in the guise of obsession. It can be a wonderfully liberating experience to sink your hands into terra firma. If all else fails, jump in the sack with your lover and re-connect that way. But now, the more I think about it, the more I’m prompted to tell you to combine the two and take a good roll in the mud. It might be the most primordial and liberating thing you’ve ever done. Why am I suggesting this course of action? Besides all that Mars in your basement? Because Virgo is your opposite sign and it hates to get dirty, while you don’t mind mixing it up. Water + Earth = Mud. The math is simple and so is the plan. With Ssturn in Scorpio as your wing gal, you’re encouraged to ponder these sorts of imponderables. That’s just for this month though. Long term, your walk in power, your ability to lead in your own life comes as you add details to the big picture. Painting by numbers is another Pisces/Virgo marriage of sorts adding the liquid light of paint to the pragmatic and very detailed map on a plotted out canvas. Add some numbers, facts, and figures. Flesh it all out Pisces and you’ll not only be moved by the spirit, but you’ll have the metrics to back it up. At that point, no one can assail your position and you are synergistically complete. And now, so are these scopes.
Projections and reflections of The Libra Full Moon.
Stepping outside the realm of the hyperreal, astro-matrix for just a post or two, we get back down to basics with the Libra Full Moon. It’s a time to show others how we want to be treated by treating them accordingly. This by the way is something that anyone involved with a Libra, Libra rising, or personal planets in Libra needs to file away, because Libra will almost always show, rather than tell how they want to be treated and related to. So pay close attention. If your Libra partner wants to give you lots of back and foot rubs, it’s a pretty clear indicator that they want the same in return. If they take you to a special restaurant or play a meaningful song, they are giving you insights into their esthetics. If they treat you with a certain aloofness (which Libra can do) they are essentially sending you signals that they want/need space. This is where Libra gets the rep of being passive/aggressive. They can be, for other reasons, but not for the ones just listed. They are simply holding up the mirror of relating, to balance the scales of their inner and outer states.
It’s fascinating to note that the Supreme Court is in deep discussion surrounding the rulings of Prop 8 in California as we are in the Libra Moon and the scales of justice weigh accordingly. No matter where you chime in on the debate, it cannot be denied that astrology is playing a major role in decision making process of a controversial and combustible position that the highest court in the land is weighing out and debating.
Look for Roberts again to be the deciding vote, if indeed it comes down to a vote. Roberts is a first deacan Aquarius, which means he is ruled by Uranus and is unpredictable. His double Uranus whammy was on hand for all the world to see as he awkwardly flubbed the first swearing in of Barack Obama, thus nullifying the oath, which later took place beneath the White House, supposedly with a Masonic and not a traditional bible beneath Obama’s right hand. Even though Roberts is married and is a Catholic, rumors have swirled around him for years as being gay. Ironically, in a strange twist of astro-sync, it was announced today, that the director of the Kennedy Center, Michael Kaiser is going to marry John Roberts, a commodities trader.
The Libra Moon, especially in it’s fullness allows to more fully understand how to do unto others as a way of setting a conscious standard for relating, not just for today but for the rest of the astrological year. Put into place now how you wish to be treated as a seal and you will then have the opportunity to practice this throughout the coming year.
One of the main challenges that pops up in the Libra Moon/Aries Sun opposition is where one self begins and the other ends. Libra can be overly accommodating at times and will often choose to not upturn the apple cart in order to maintain peace and stability; Go along to get along can be it’s mantra. Meanwhile, Aries is anything but accommodating and pliant. Aries knows what it wants and goes after it, regardless of the slings and arrows it might suffer from others that don’t think they’re playing nice. This is one of the key and fundamental dynamics that gets played out in relationships; The dominant versus the passive. The Libra Full Moon can remind us that both people inside a relationship will assume both roles over the course of the relationship, over time. So remember, if you’re on top, it’s always a good thing to treat your position with respect and conscious appreciation, because the great wheel is always turning.
On today’s show, I’ll be doing live, mini-readings and we’ll get into the spirit of the Libra Moon by exploring synastry and composite charts.
Also, I am offering seasonal specials on all readings. If you are interested, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
In our last episode, we tracked the influence of one, Nicholas Roerich on the destiny of the USA. Roerich was a mystic said to be in possession of part the “Chintamani Stone” or what some people call, “The Holy Grail.” Another piece of this fabled stone is supposedly encased at the Kabaa in Mecca. It’s powers are said to confer upon the possessor of the stone the ability to see clearly into both the past and the future while accelerating one’s spiritual development for beyond the lackluster rate of the average person. In short, it contained magical properties that could turn the average human into a supra-human.
Nicholas Roerich used to carry it around in a little coffin-like-box, with a cloth from Tibet, shrouding the coffin itself. Roerich’s tales of meeting with supermen in Tibet, the Chintamani Stone and his elite Russian network of artists, which included the likes of Stravinsky, Balanchine and Kandinsky gave him an almost unprecedented set of credentials to access the highest corridors of power under the Roosevelt administration through Roosevelt’s vice-president, Henry Wallace. As we approach the Libra Full Moon, it’s worth noting that both Roerich and Wallace were Libra Suns, separated by one degree. So their connection was not fabricated as it was as they say, “written in the stars” but I don’t think it’s a stretch to say that Roerich amplified it’s importance to the point of manipulation.
As we step back (and thanks to Charles Frith for his input on Wallace) what we have is a clear case of a svengali-like presence casting a spell over men that were blinded by their ideals and a vision of America as “The New Atlantis,” fueled by Roerich’s tales of Shamabala and “The Coming Of The Christ.” All of the esoteric seeds had been planted cultivated by their education and training in Freemasonry (Wallace was 32nd degree Mason) and they were ripe for the arrival of Roerich, a man that was not only fluent in Masonic ritual and language, but even went beyond it. He had plenty of tricks up his sleeve. In addition to the Chintamani Stone, Roerich also had a wife who could channel and contact these superhuman entities. It’s likely that she summoned the spirits of Bacon and other ascended masters and put on quite a show for Roerich’s new charges.
His influence went for beyond the White House. In New York city, he had a major benefactor in one, Louis Horch, who, like Wallace had fallen under Roerich’s spell. Horch erected a 27 story building, a veritable skyscraper at the time and called it, “The Master Building.” Ironically, Joseph Campbell, whose birthday it is today, once lived in the building. But the building has a bit of a different and less well known piece of it’s history. It’s where they filmed the comedy, “Ghostbusters.”
We will return to this very important piece of trivia later.
If you listen to my conversation with guerilla-tweeter extraordinaire, Charles Frith on my Monday show, we get into this concept that Wallace and Roosevelt had employed Roerich to give them the symbolic power to defeat the Germans and even Roosevelt’s rival, Churchill in not just a physical war, but a metaphysical one. Thus through Roerich we have the deeply symbolic dollar encoded with owls, skulls, pentagrams and even six-six-six. Not only was the dollar given an esoteric makeover, but the Pentagon aka Pentagram was erected with the sole purpose of summoning the energies of the five-pointed-star in the service of defense and war.
Symbolically empowered, the USA could then be on it’s way to becoming the “New Atlantis” that the followers of Bacon had dreamed of and claim it’s spiritual destiny amongst all countries of the world. There was only one problem. It’s likely that Roerich was not only a gifted con artist with some esoteric chops, but that he was also a double agent and a spy.
Roerich was around for the Bolshevik revolution and being involved with artists like Maxim Gorky, Kandinsky and others, he was tabbed to be a member of the new socialist government. This is important to note as Roerich, in his youth, resembles another, well known revolutionary of the time.
While it’s not clear that Roerich ever shed his ties to the Bolsheviks, we do know that he told Wallace not to fear Joseph Stalin and that Stalin could become not just a political ally, but a spiritual one as well. This along with some other treachery would be Wallace’s undoing.
After FDR left office, the presidency was for all intents and purposes, Wallace’s to lose. Under the leadership of FDR, the USA had come through the war as a winner (according to the history books) and was building roads, dams and bridges faster than any nation in history. Wallace was FDR’s right hand man through the enactment of the “New Deal” or the “Novo Odorum Seclorum” which is the New Order Of The Ages. FDR’s “New Deal” was the metaphysical vision made manifest. Keep in mind that he was an Aquarian and was predisposed to act through the design of his sign. I’ve tracked Aquarius through a number of previous posts, both through aspect and sign and shown how prominent it is as force majeure for social change. No doubt, FDR was aware of this and saw his destiny as not just a president but a spiritual master implementing part of the great plan.
But, as we’ve already mentioned, I believe that Roerich was a spy, sent to infiltrate Washington and under the aegis of mystical destiny, instead of supplying Wallace with the symbols that would stand up and empower them against the Nazi’s dual thunderbolts (Sowelu from the Runic script) and the Swaistika, that these symbols would actually become a curse upon the people of the USA and that the script aka “money” would become a script of fall, not ascension. In essence, there is a strong case to be made that Roerich was working with the other side. The other side in this case was the Bolsheviks and their financial backers, The Rothschilds.
The reason I think that this is the case is that when Henry Wallace had a very good chance at the presidency and could threaten Truman. However letters between he and Roerich called, “The Guru Letters” somehow wound up in the hands of the Hearst newspapers and Westbrook Pegler along with H.L. Mencken. Pegler and Mencken eviscerated Wallace in public, not only printing and commenting on the letters in a cynical light, but also grilling Wallace in public, for which Wallace had no defense. It was a pure takedown job. So the question is; How did they come into possession of those letters?
Presumably, Wallace didn’t keep copies on hand. I’m going out on a very strong limb to suggest that it was Roerich himself who provided Hearst with the letters or at least access to them. I believe that the man that Wallace had not only trusted, but gave his life and the destiny of this country over to for spiritual direction had betrayed him for the sole intent of taking him down and thus paving the way for the candidate that the Rothschild consortium wanted; Harry Truman.
Truman had managed to insert himself in FDR’s final term, as the marginalization of Wallace was underway. The Truman/Roosevelt ticket was called, “The Second Missouri Compromise” and Truman was thought to be able to give FDR the conservative ballast he needed to defeat New York governor, Thomas Dewey. FDR placated Wallace by retaining him as Secretary of Commerce.
Wallace and Truman were running against one another for the democratic nomination and that’s when the guru letters appeared. Also, when Wallace was going to address the democratic national convention, the lights went mysteriously out and he never got to make his speech. Within 24 hours there had been a coup within the party and Truman had absconded with the nomination,
It’s under Truman that the Hell Bomb is developed via “The Manhattan Project” from Bernard Baruch’s penthouse in New York. It’s under Truman that Louis Brandeis is selected for the Supreme Court and it’s under Truman that the state of Israel quickly becomes recognized by the USA. This from Wikipedia;
“Truman had long taken an interest in the history of the Middle East, and had read many books on ancient history and the events related in the Bible. He was sympathetic to those who sought a Jewish homeland in Mandatory Palestine. As a senator, he had assured Jewish leaders of his support for Zionism, and at a 1943 rally in Chicago had called for a homeland for those Jews who survived the Nazi regime. A Jewish homeland in Palestine was widely popular in the United States, and Jewish support could be key in the upcoming presidential election. However, State Department officials were reluctant to offend the Arabs, who were opposed to the establishment of a Jewish state in their midst. Secretary of Defense James Forrestal warned Truman of the importance of Saudi Arabian oil in another war; Truman replied that he would decide his policy on the basis of justice, not oil. Furthermore, when diplomats were called home from the Middle East to advise Truman and promoted the Arab point of view, Truman told them he had few Arabs among his constituents.“
It’s clear that Truman was not only a made man, but he was also a war monger, getting the USA into the Korean conflict as quickly as possible, even circumventing congress to do so. It’s also no mistake that Harry Truman was the 33rd president of the United States.
So what became of Roerich and Wallace?
Roerich had moved his operation to Asia, where ostensibly he was doing research for the US on certain strains of rice, but more likely, he was trying to organize some sort of Pan-Asian Buddhist front as another type of political insurrection posing as spiritual mission. Once Roerich was detained by Chinese officials, Wallace and others in the US government distanced themselves from him.
Wallace would return to his first, true love agriculture and explore South America and it’s vast selection of native plants and crops. He would die from ALS and unfortunately under the shadow of a political pariah of sorts. Wallace, trying to balance out his Libran Sun would take a sharp turn to the right politically and back the likes of Eisenhower and Nixon. Kennedy, an admirer of Wallace invited him to his inauguration, even though he had supported Nixon.
But what about that building? The Master Building and Ghostbusters?
Sandra Synar, who listens to the show and reads the blog pointed out that they filmed Ghostbusters in “The Master Building” and that theme of Ghostbusters eerily mirrors the core concept of “The Rite Of Spring” which is essentially the possession of a maiden, who is driven by the spirit who possesses her to dance to her death and as a result both her life force and the spirit within her are released into the tribe and more importantly, the “wise elders” who sit at the inner circle and are the recipients of the release of both types of life force.
In Ghostbusters, that woman is played by Sigourney Weaver. In the film Weaver’s character is named, “Dana Barrett.” Dana is another version of Danu, a Celtic fertility goddess and is connected to the Danube River, which is where the Celts were said to have originated from. Barrett means “warlike” and “deceitful” so her character’s namesake in the film is essentially a warlike and deceitful fertility goddess who becomes a demonic portal, all of which is shot in the Roerich Building, dedicated to the man who helped craft The Rite Of Spring.
So here’s where it gets fairly interesting. Henry Wallace was born on 10/7. Nicholas Roerich was born on 10/9. Sigourney Weaver was born on 10/8. So what we have is a synchronistic sequence of 7-8-9.
Ghostbusters opened on June 8th, 1984. At the dawn of the day on June, the Moon was in Libra at 10 degrees. There was a stellium in Gemini (Sun/Merc/Venus/TN/Chiron). All five were co-habitatiting in the 12th House. By the time the first matinee would take place, around Noon, the Moon had progressed to 14 Libra, while the same Gemini Stellium had ascended to the 9th and 10th Houses, with the MC splitting the TN and Chiron right down the middle. Here we see Gemini in not just a position of power but prominence, and an invocation of the energy of duality. Gemini is the alchemical symbol that was embodied in the Twin Towers. It is Hermes, messenger of the gods. As a lover of Aphrodite, the two gave birth to the physical resolution of duality in the form of “Hermaphrodite” a being which contains both sexes. This can also be viewed as a manifestation of Baphomet, which is embodied most frequently by Capricorn. Notice that Neptune is in Capricorn at the 0 degree, which, is essentially the mystic (Neptune) birth of Capricorn (zero degree or the egg). Neptune is in the womb of the 4th House at 12 Noon or the time of the first matinee.
What’s fascinating is that even though evil is vanquished and Dana/Danu’s otherworldly yoni has been closed for the time being, Ghostbusters resurfaces again, five-years later as “Ghostbusters II.” Notice the Roman numeral version of two, which resembles the symbol of Gemini. When did it open? June 16th, Gemini again. This time, instead of Dana Barrett being the one possessed, it’s her son, Oscar that is the object of otherworldly design. The force of evil in Ghostbusters II comes from pink slime, which feeds off the negative emotions of New Yorkers. At the climax of the film, the pink slime rises up from the subway and essentially becomes a river headed to the Manhattan Museum Of Modern Art, where the only person that can save baby Oscar and the city itself is Dana/Danu. You really can’t make this shit up. Oscar, is played not by one child, but two . . .Twins!!! William T. Deutschendorf and Henry J. Deutschendorf II. Here’s an interesting photo of the twins in a much more recent pose.
Sigourney Weaver stands out as a vessel of the Cinematrix. Weaver is a blue blood through and through. She attended Sarah Lawrence, Stanford and Yale. She blasted her way onto the screen as Ripley (believe it or not, it’s a woman that saves the world and not a man) in “Alien.” She would later reprise her role as Ripley in Alien 3, where she actually gives birth to a hybrid alien baby. Sensing a theme here? She would later appear in Avatar, where she portrays another character who is involved in a type of possession, as she “possesses” the body of a Na’vi. Also on Weaver’s resume are two, highly poetically charged films, including “The Year Of Living Dangerously” where she played opposite Mel Gibson as the two are star crossed lovers during the fall of the Sukarno regime in Indonesia.
She also starred in a film that is conspicuously downplayed. The movie is called, “Half Moon Street.” In it Weaver plays a political advisor by day and a hooker by night, thus emulating not just duality but also approaching the areas of mind control and spying. While Caine and Weaver mostly fizzle than sizzle as screen lovers, there’s a fair amount of info as it relates to the inner workings of circles of power inside of established governments. At the beginning of the film, while at a dinner, Weaver’s character is asked if she knows how many people are in the world. She replies with the standard census figure and the man of mystery corrects her, telling her there’s only 300 people in the world. This is a fairly obvious reference to John Coleman’s “Committee Of 300.” There’s other tidbits of juicy insider info revealed in the film but it gets mostly lost amidst a laboring love story between two people against a background of political intrigue and danger for knowing too much.
Bringing it all back home to where we started, with Nicholas Roerich, The Rite Of Spring, Henry Wallace, Truman and Ghostbusters as the Libra Moon approaches, Ghostbusters 3 is apparently in production with the idea that a new Ghostbusters team will be introduced. But I’ll give you one more little nugget to chew on. As I looked at a young version of Nicholas Roerich I was struck by how much he looked like another historical figure form not only his time, but his place.
Ghostbusters opening day. Notice Black Moon Lilith is in the sign of Pisces in the 7th House. This corresponds to dark Dana/Danu, goddess of rivers and lakes.
Just drying out the synapses in all this Aries heat. Mercury moves forward, Sun in Aries, the Vernal Equinox is upon us. It’s all good–unless of course you’re a Syrian, Palestinian, Malian, Afghani, Paki or any number of people that reject genetically modified anythings. In which case, your day is filled with some faint glimmer of hope against an eternal struggle of having someone or something trying to impose not just their will upon you, but completely alter and obliterate any historical reference, both inside and out of your DNA’s original supposedly safe, code. The ancient war on this planet isn’t about land rights or resources, its about the conquest of your soul.
On May 29th, 1913 (that’s 11-22 or 33 if you’re keeping score at home, and in the 5 and you get back to 11), “Le Sacre du Primtemps” also known as “The Rite Of Spring” premiered in Paris. The score and the overall theme of the ballet was conjured up by Igor Stravinsky. But Stravinsky had some serious help. The philosophical and esoteric mind behind “Le Sacre” was Nicholas Roerich. Roerich might be one of the most pivotal, esoteric and occult agents of the 20th century.
One of Roerich’s claims to fame was that he was the possessor of the “Chintamani Stone” which pre-dates that Grail Cup as one of the most prized power objects or totems on the planet. It’s claimed that the Chintamani Stone had broken off from a planet that orbits Sirius. Many believe that the Kabaa in Mecca has part of the stone sealed in it’s core.
With a piece of the Chintamani in his possession, Roerich made a pilgrimage to Tibet, to re-unite the stone with Shamabala. This conferred upon Roerich enormous street cred as the stone apparently gave one the ability to see into the past and future, while accelerating and upgrading all human functions to a supra-human level. Roerich became so influential, that he penetrated some of the most powerful circles in the world, especially the USA. He had developed a master/teacher relationship with Henry Wallace, who at the time was Secretary of State.
Wallace interestingly enough was the 33rd vice-president of the USA and born on October 7th had his Sun conjunct Roerich’s, born October 9th. Wallace was also born in 1888, in the ironic and curiously named, “Orient,” Iowa. He would later become VP for FDR and it’s through Wallace that the dollar gets a serious makeover, laced with symbols from the “All-Seeing-Eye” to the Owl, to the 13 Stars in the form of a pentagram. The man that contributed the magickal designs for the dollar? His spiritual teacher, Nicholas Roerich.
Roerich was held in such high esteem by his followers and brethren, that he had not only had his own minor planet/asteroid, 4426 Roerich named after him, but also had a major New York building with a penthouse called, “The Master Building” built for him as well.
So now that you have some background on Roerich and can understand his symbolic impact on our money, you might better appreciate his influence on “The Rite Of Spring.
What was The Rite Of Spring? Why did the crowd in Paris, witnessing it that night go berserk? Why did Stravinsky do it in the first place?
During that time in history, there had been a bit of a push towards the romantic ideal of indigenous cultures. Gaugin’s visions of Polynesian natives, especially the women, sent the world a twitter. Here’s a poster form the 1910 world’s fair in Brussels.
But if we see the Rite of Spring in a larger context, it’s a singular event that trumpets changes in the course of history that still reverberate to this very time.
In 1913, we see the formation of the Federal Reserve, the adoption of the Federal Income tax and the beginnings of WWI, which the US would eventually become entrenched in.
However, there’s even more to The Rite than just a dark clarion for the days of chaos ahead. Again, keep in mind that Roerich is one of the minds behind it as well as other esoteric masters like Kandinsky and Balanchine. The Rite was a ritual for the 20th Century itself, invoking a ritual sacrifice of innocence for the modern century to come.
There are thirteen movements in the Rite. In movements 10 through 13 the sequence is about (10) The harvesting of virgins, (11) The invocations of ancestors (spirits), (12) The entrusting of them into the care of “wise men,” and finally (13) The chosen one dances herself to death in the presence of the “old men” as a sacrifice in a sacrificial dance.
I might be reading a bit into it, but there’s a type of entrainment and mind control at play here and as well the slaughter of innocence. This was the ritualistic impact of “Le Sacre du Printemps.”
It is my estimation, that the virgin is Christianity as the naive ideal and innocence and her death paves the way for the “Novo Ordo Seclorum” or “New Order Of The Ages” which Roerich, would eventually imprint on every Federal Reserve Note. But she is also a symbol of Sophia or wisdom and that her ritual death would confer, in the presence of the “wise men” who would witness it with the essence of her life force and power.
It’s interesting that they chose the 29th of May for the performance. The Sun and Mercury were conjunct, with Saturn in Gemini (Sun/Saturn exact at the mystical 7 degree), which of course is in keeping with the mystery of duality and Gemini. The True Node was at 0 degrees Aries. Chiron was at 14 degrees Pisces and Black Moon Lilith at 9 degrees Pisces. The Black Moon Lilith, especially in Pisces, is important as we see it transposed against the sacrificial virgin of the final movement, death in “The Rite.” We could go on and on about the significance of 9. It’s a major number. From nine planets to Jesus appearing to his disciples nine times after his resurrection, nine is one of the most prominent numbers in spiritual, religious and mythical symbolism.
Even though we would round up to 10 if we started with 9 degrees for Pisces in the Sabian Symbols, if we start with 8, it then rounds up to 9. The Sabian Symbol for 8 Pisces/BML, jumps off the page as we look at in conjunction with The Rite;
PHASE 338 (PISCES 8°): A GIRL BLOWING A BUGLE. KEYNOTE: A call to participation in the service of the race, as an evolutionary crisis approaches
This symbolic picture presents another aspect of the emotional relationship between the individual and the collectivity of human beings. It can also be related to the old feminist movement or the present women’s liberation. In traditional symbolism the woman refers more specifically to the biological and psychic aspect of human life; she is seen primarily as the mother, and/or the intuitive or “psychic” type of person. A new race of human beings may well be slowly unfolding some of its potential of consciousness and fulfillment. The individual who envisions this evolutionary development “sounds the call.” He or she is both seer-herald and mutant. In that sense such a human being is both an individual true to his original nature and a dedicated person — dedicated to the future he or she holds in latency as does a seed in mutation.
At this third stage of the sixty-eighth five-fold sequence the two preceding phases blend in a new form of consecration of the individual to the Whole. Tomorrow acts through today; it SUMMONS men to rebirth.
Pretty interesting eh?
I asked Sabian Symbol expert, Lynda Hill about the significance of the previous symbol and she likens it to the South Node, so it is the energy approaching the exact degree symbol itself. So 8 degrees is an essential reference point as we round it up to 9.
As the first day of the new year unfolds, keep in mind that the “Le Sacre Du Temps” aka “The Rite Of Spring” was in essence, a summoning ritual for the whole of the 20th Century itself. Followed by Roerich’s second act as the symbolic engraver of our national script.
With all the Aries energy in the air, I’ll be back up and writing in the next day with scopes soon to follow.
It’s official. Saturn and Mercury are waltzing backwards and the sky has been doused by a cadre of water sprites dispatched from Triton. Did you know that Triton has an atmosphere? Did you know that unlike the other 12 moons of Neptune, Triton has a retrograde orbit? So I guess it had to reverse itself right into the first paragraph. The thirteen moons of Neptune follow the mystical sequence of 12/13. 13 is the 12 disciples + 1 and a fitting equation since we’re talking about the planet which rules Pisces. Speaking of which . . .
In just three days, Pope Benedict will get the hell out of Vatican City as quickly and as anonymously as possible. Maybe they should rent Robert Blake to play his double for the day, while Ratzinger jumps ship out the side door, dressed as an Italian ice vendor. It’s generally a bad career move to vacate before one’s time is up. Just ask Saddam, The Shah, Gaddafi and Osho. It ain’t long before you’re down and rushed off to some obscure hospital somewhere, only to never to see the light of day again. I suppose they can keep him around if the lights go out, kinda like what they’re doing with Sharon, preserving his psychopathic genius for the time when they can upload his marvelous malevolence to the exonet.
But this is not about darkness or screeds of injustice wrapped in cynical jest, lancing you with symbols, piercing the membrane of awareness, while desperately trying to wrest you from the trance. This is about remembering who you are and where you came from. With Mercury, the messenger of the gods flying in reverse, winging along the path of the Fisher King, it’s all about re-collection.
The one piece I left out of my Aquarian series, the one I’m saving for the e-book, is when Uranus and Neptune were in Aquarius on the eleventh of September, in 2001. On that day, the Moon was in Gemini as was
Saturn, firmly representing the duality of the day.
Mars, in all of its’s martial fury was in Capricorn and Black Moon Lilith was at two degrees Pisces, cast out of the garden of the Christian Age, while Uranus and Neptune in the sign of the rebel found their home in the nadir of chart, blistering our consciousness and for a brief period of time, drawing the world closer together through tragedy, united against a shadowy cave dweller, hidden somewhere in the remote regions of Afghanistan. You’re either with us or against us.
It was a “clear break” from the past, which enabled the United States to adopt a pre-emptive strike mentality. While the Kennedy assassination altered the timeline, it was in need of some serious bolting down and on the morning of the 12th, the day after, a new world had been born out of the rubble of asbestos and human dust. It was a world that was about security and not freedom. It was a world that would spawn color revolutions fed by the ideology of an Aquarian professor from UMass (Gene Sharp), who would supply the tactics necessary to stage, “democratic coups.”
We have to go back before then on the current of memory, back to a time when our humanity and the principles we did our best to embody were sacred. Back to a time where our values reflected the order and the will of heaven. Before they split the atom and the collective soul, we were whole. I’m not talking a chicken-in-every-pot, and a car in every garage (though you can stop there too), but somewhere in the recesses of our hearts, where every cell has within it the library of our spiritual genesis, wrapped and twisted like a knotted tale, waiting to be untangled.
In there, we know exactly who we are and where we came from. We understand suffering and joy equally, wishing none of the former, and inviting plenty of the latter. We don’t need wetware or synoptical nodes to jack us in or plumb our depths. It’s all there. From the fall of Atlantis to the rise of Yeshua, the story of our beginning and our end is encoded in the matrices of our blood. But just in case you forgot, let’s take time to remember, together, exactly who we are at our most compassionate, wisest, warmest, funniest, fullest and divine best.
Last night at the Academy Awards, the women’s bathroom was backed up and overflowed–a surreal symbol of Mercury retrograde Pisces getting played out–the true feminine denied. In case you’re not getting it, the holy mother was saying that Babylon is full of shit and her maidens are emotionally incontinent.
Aquarian, Seth McFarlane continued on with his cute little war on sensibility.
Michelle Obama dropped in of course, reminding us, yet again, that the Obama’s are at the center of everything, everywhere, all the time.
But this isn’t about that. It’s about poetry, music, the stunning grandeur of the planet, the last remnants of food untainted by alien seed or synthetic skies.
It’s about feeling safe in the night, with a lover next to you, knowing that in your heart of hearts, you lived your day exceedingly well and that a divine flame fills you both with a faith beyond death and that there is no room for fear of shadows, liars, murderers and thieves. We can respect the danger, but the love and the fear cannot co-exist.
This is what I am hear to remind you of during this Mercury Retrograde in Pisces, your rightful and divine place amongst the cosmos with the creator.
It’s funny, whenever trends start to peek, I’ve almost always gone in the other direction. I’m not sure if this is yet another manifestation of Chiron in Aquarius retrograde and I’m just staking out some contrarian terrain, or I’m sensing the collapse of one system before it crumbles and falls, but for whatever reason, I’m more and more aware of the space that goes against the grain of our times. That’s not to say that I’m retreating into some luddite fantasy world, yearning for 1950 all over again, but there’s an emergent sense of values and internal order that cohere to a different dimension that I’m often occupying in the flotsam and jetsam of pop-culture and bizarre exo-politics.
I can’t tell you how many conversations I’ve had recently with people who are pretty tired and fed up with the dominant culture, ramming, ramming, and ramming at the gates of their sanity and sanctity. From false flags to fake boobs, they’ve had enough.
There’s no going back in a physical sense. There’s no Plymouth Rock or event horizon stretching out into the infinitude of the western sky. Those places are gone. There’s only a way through the swamps of confusion and the terrors of tyranny. Somewhere inside, there’s a faint beacon that can take you home, if you have the heart to listen and follow it without fail. Along the way, you might meet others with the very same destination and if you do, know you are truly blessed.
For every injustice, do something good when you can.
For every slight, rejoice for the opportunity to wrestle with compassion and forgiveness.
We have to be bigger than our current milieu, because that’s just the way we were wired and somehow forgot along the way.
I wonder what’s making me feel this way. Maybe its Mercury retrograde doing the prompting of my puritanical Moon, in all it’s fullness, cresting my MC, conjuncting my Sun. Or maybe it’s the Biblical winds, lashing out at the landscape at 50MPH, conjuring images of near Earth giants whipping the atmosphere into an apocalyptic frenzy. Whatever the case, it’s reminding me, to remind you about your deepest spiritual strata. I hope it worked.
Speaking of reminders, Wednesday, I’ll have psychic medium, Sharon Johns on Navigating The Astrological Matrix, an appropriate person to show up when we’re all awash in the Piscean swirl. That will be Wednesday, 3/28 at 12PM Central.
I’ve often wondered why Black History Month is in February and what it has to do with the sign of Aquarius? With the risk of sounding like conspiricist, I think it has to do with the Aquarian ideal/image of the au currant version of the black race. I spoke about this with SiStar MyRah on our Super Bowl Review. It’s a pretty compelling dialog apart from the symbolic breakdown of the game itself. In the last half-hour, we delved into a rarely discussed topic; racial mixing.
It began when I noted the percentage of commercials on television that had black males and or families depicted as the majority, a place at one point in time occupied by whites. I also noted that most of the males looked like some iteration of Barack Obama, light skinned and metro-sexualized. On some level, this makes commercial sense to me, since selling a product could have much more resonance if you modeled the model on the president, who has unmistakably, the biggest brand in the land. But SiStar MyRah took it one step further. She talked about this as being the acceptable model of being black. Look around at most black american stars, like Beyonce, Rhianna and Nicki Minnaj. They’re more golden than black, while equally, if not more talented artists like Fantasia Barrino, (Hey Missy Elliot where are you?) aren’t nearly as heavily promoted. SiStar MyRah called them, “hybrids.”
As I deftly do my best to discuss race without falling and getting fried by the third rail, my sense, is, is that lighter skinned, mixed-race-version is the physical manifestation of the blending of one race, one color, one collective variant of a golden species, which would ultimately break with social, racial and historical identities, and as a result, would be about the future and not the past. It would be more than just a symbolic element of a planet peopled by one color and vibration. It would be a physical incarnation of the Aquarian ideal, the melanized version of a racial alchemy, turning the lead of a number of races into the gold of one.
This, in some ways would reflect a form of completion, since, according to Blavatsky, the second root race, after the first (amoeba like beings) had golden skin. This of course would not align with Blavatsky’s overall vision of the root races, which sees the sixth and seventh root races as the Australo-American, a psychic race of beings from Australia, New Zealand and California. This vision of a golden race is something that has also been written about and seen by channelers and remote viewers as being the face of Terra in the future.
Now, on one level, albeit a fairly cynical one, it might be viewed as high-level eugenics practiced through intense social programming, which would highlight and promote mixing of all races, and through which new codes of behavior, new ethics and even a new religion could be installed, thus eliminating the God of the Piscean age. The implementation of the new world religion has already begun and it emerges from two, separate directions which both, promote an alternative version of the post-christian God.
From the left side of the coast, there’s the new age version of the universe, or cosmos, or source that uses texts like the Book of Urantia and Course of Miracles, laced with heavy doses of Theosophy, Hinduism, Buddhism and polyamoristic tantra. It’s The Lightworkers Union, Local 1111.
From the other side, there’s a much darker version co-mingling with it. This would be the re-birth of illuministic, ritual occult practice, which is really illuminati magic as fashion statement, cliched hand signs and a philosophy that encourages a watered-down version of “Do as thou wilt.” It comes down through the hip-hop pyramid and trickles all the way to Miley Cyrus and Justin Bieber.
Together, these two variants combine, just as skin tones do, to form some sort of ideological fusion, a blended frequency spectrum of beliefs with the individual squarely at the center of it.
Of course, Barack Obama is the high priest, the pharaonic mediator between both worlds, welcoming the golden skinned goddesses, Beyonce and Alicia Keyes into the White House and rubbing elbows with J-Hovah, while he’s flashing his magic smile to the beaming acolytes of Marianne Williamson, Neal Donald Walsh, Deepak Chopra and Barbara Marx-Hubbard. Here, we have an ideological synthesis and mixing, a hybrid spirituality with a new high priest, himself a living agency of the planetary experiment in the manipulation of consciousness and race. With his Hawaiian legacy, he is the “rainbow bridge.”
I’ve also found it interesting that whenever Black History Month rolls around, it’s almost always the same cast of characters that are celebrated and feted. It’s no coincidence that Rosa Parks gets huge play. She’s also an Aquarian and she went to the Highander School in Tennessee, where she, along with Martin Luther King was trained in social justice and Marxist ideology. Her storming the front seat of the bus was no act of individual defiance. It was a staged and calculated act of social disobedience.
And while racism of any sort is repugnant, one of the things that segregation did foster, was the need for black owned businesses and economic drivers to develop in the dark shadow of Jim Crow laws.
James Brown is rarely celebrated during Black History month and yet the godfather of soul, was at one time the largest owner of black owned radio stations and even instituted his own stamp/value/rebate program with “Brown Stamps,” an offshoot of S&H Green Stamps and Blue Chip Stamps. Brown had a strong vision of economically empowering the Black community–that was until the government and the social programs of the Great Society became the de-facto parent of the inner cities. Combine that with the death of many, fine young black males during the Vietnam War and the flooding of opiates into the inner cities and, well, you know the rest of the story.
James Brown had survived a brutal car crash and lost a son along the way. While he was still the hardest working man in show business, he sold his radio stations and got out of the empowerment game.
Another, powerful figure that we don’t hear much about, in spite of his iconic status is Bob Marley, which is interesting, since Marley is the genetic inheritor of both Anglo and African DNA, an early adopter of the race of the golden light and an Aquarian to boot.
Marley’s one world, one love message is Aquarian to the core. He was rapidly becoming one of the most influential people on the planet regardless of skin color or occupation. But Marley was waking up and waking others along with him. His classic track, “Babylon System” talks about the planetary enslavement program that has been in place since the high-unholy-days of Babylon;
Survival Babylon System We refuse to be What you wanted us to be; We are what we are: That’s the way (way) it’s going to be. you don’t know! You can’t educate i For no equal opportunity: (talkin’ ’bout my freedom) talkin’ ’bout my freedom, People freedom (freedom) and liberty! Yeah, we’ve been trodding on the winepress much too long: Rebel, rebel! Yes, we’ve been trodding on the winepress much too long: Rebel, rebel!
Those are the type of words that get peoples attention, in many ways. He’s not talking about Cristal or Courvosier, or Bentley. He’s addressing spiritual warfare in the most clear language there can be. And just in case you miss it in the first verse, Marley keeps it going in the second.
Babylon system is the vampire, yea! (vampire) Suckin’ the children day by day, yeah! Me say: de babylon system is the vampire, falling empire, Suckin’ the blood of the sufferers, yea-ea-ea-ea-e-ah! Building church and university, wo-o-ooh, yeah! - Deceiving the people continually, yea-ea! Me say them graduatin’ thieves and murderers; Look out now: they suckin’ the blood of the sufferers (sufferers). Yea-ea-ea!
Marley would contract a treatable form of cancer, in the foot of all places, which is ruled by his own sign; Aquarius. Marley would get terrible advice on the treating of it. Dubmaster, certified wild-man and Wailers producer, Lee “Scratch” Perry would later accuse Island Records label head, Chris Blackwell of putting a curse on Marley so that he would die and that Blackwell could take the lion’s share of Marley’s royalties.
Marley was imperfect, but he was a giant and he bridged color, race, class and culture in a historical fashion. He was rapidly becoming the same type of prophet he often sang about. In some ways, the Aquarian vision itself, not the falsified version of a synthetic system of applied economic theory and symbolic enslavement, but a real one, arising out of the human heart in an organic fashion, is inherent in the sound and vision of Marley’s music.
Another, pivotal and important figure that is also rarely mentioned or discussed during Black History month is one, Fela Anikulapo Kuti. While Haile Sellasie courted the British Magistrate, the League of Nations and later the UN, Fela Kuti had a vision of Africa that had nothing to do with the globalist, hegemonic agenda. Kuti wanted his own Nigeria to be a model country, a strong state that could anchor the independence of African power and consciousness and be a model for a post-colonialist Africa that was seemingly being ruled by proxy through puppet dictators and presidents on the globalists dole. They were of course supplied with plenty of arms to fortify their often brutal rule of law.
Kuti favored a type of pan-Africanism that would join various states under one Africa. This vision was branded as a type of socialism, but there isn’t any historical or lyrical connection to Kuti and Marxism. His brand of socialism was a type of geo-political unity that supported African and not imperial interests.
Kuti formed his own community/colony called the “Kalakuta Republic,” which was based on polygamy and Yoruba. As a result, he was a modern-day-Solomon with twenty-seven-wives. By the way, if you haven’t noticed, this was about 180 degrees from the current dawning of the “golden age.”
Kuti was a continental separatist and that boys and girls is bad for business. He would survive a number of attacks on his life and eventually die of AIDS related symptoms. Like Marley before him, he would eschew western medicine for treatment.
But perhaps there’s more to this connection with Aquarius/February being Black History month.
Back in the late 90′s I had the great pleasure to meet Kodwo Eshun, a gifted writer with an infectious and lively spirit. I first saw Kodwo in the Iara Lee documentary on electronic music, “Modulations.” Eshun, along with Robert Moog stole the show. Eshun’s ability to articulate electronic music into prose resulted in something called, “Sonic Fiction” out of which sprang an incredibly important journey into the future frequencies of jazz, electronic and funk music. Eshun’s essays on Sun Ra, George Clinton, Jimi Hendrix, DJ Spooky, Wu Tang, Underground Resistance, Drexciya, Juan Atkins, Derrick May and other pioneers of a futuristic, afrocentrism in music was astounding and his prose was as dense and layered as a Funkadelic mind jam. Eshun’s work has contributed greatly to a school of music, image and text called, “Afrofuturism.”
For me, in many ways, this typifies not just the outside version of Black History month as a form of Aquarian expression, but the essence of the Aquarian spirit as a vibration that connects our ancient roots and rhythms across races, spaces and times, catapulting them into the future via the magic of wordsound, incantations that reverberate with a musical language all their own, creating an imaginary landscape that uses myth and narrative as a jump seat into hyper-dimensional possibility. This is the place where the imagination is divine and all beings can revel in the complexity and nuance of spirit, through all of its manifestations, without judgment, without prejudice and without the not-so-subtle commands to surrender ones autonomy and heritage in favor of some grand, social-experimental-gene wipe where diversity bleeds into one, macro-miasmic-monad and a myriad of cultural traditions and riches are lost in the mix. In modern recording, the compression of sound is the audio correlation, where the highs and lows are crunched into the broad middle of the track, so that the sound is loud and punchy, jumping out of the speakers, grabbing your attention, but sacrificing the essential nuances of the track.
Now it might just be, that when the Pleiadians finally land, they’ll be greeted by a bunch of people that look a lot like Amber Rose and Miles Austin and maybe they’ll have peace in their hearts and vastly open minds. if that’s the way this unfolds as a physical expression of oneness in the Aquarian Age, then so be it. But if I were the architects of this planetary re-shaping, I might be tad concerned, because they just might be breeding their own annihilation through a species that can channel love at such a high pitch, that any kind of anger, retribution and malice will not be able to co-exist in the same atmosphere. Perhaps these will truly be “Destiny’s Children” and if it ends the top down tyranny as a result, without hesitation, I say, bring it on.
“A reformation means that masses of our people have reached the point of disillusionment with past ways and values. They don’t know what will work but they do know that the prevailing system is self-defeating, frustrating, and hopeless. They won’t act for change, but won’t strongly oppose those who do. The time is then ripe for revolution.” (Saul Alinsky)
Does, the above quote, sound familiar? Does it sound like perhaps the current milieu in which most people are deeply polarized or standing around with their palms up in the air, staring back at one another in utter disbelief? To quote one Talking Head, “Well, how did I get here”?
As the social fires of the Sixties blazed, and the very real fires of the inner cities burned down the likes of Detroit and Watts, a revolution was underway and it wasn’t being led by Clever, Ayers, Rubin, Hoffman or Dorn. It was taking place from within The White House itself.
With John F. Kennedy and the threat of a sovereign America, no longer in the oval office, Lyndon Baines Johnson aka LBJ set about to change the course of America with the most ambitious undertaking since the New Deal. Johnson would create “The Great Society” which was the second, massive ramp up of social services in the USA of the 20th Century.
It began in earnest in 1964, while the public was still reeling from the senseless death of their president, their King Arthur, the heir to Camelot. In the despondent fog of the collective trance, a new program was quickly being inserted. At this time Saturn was still in Aquarius and out of it, groups and agencies like VISTA the NEA, Job Corps, etc., were born out of the Great Society, mostly based on a dictum/mandate called; “The War On Poverty.” It also led to something that had never happened before in the history of the USA; The federal government’s incursion into public education via, “The Elementary and Secondary Education Act of 1965.” With it’s passage, it meant that the federal government would have a seat at the table and a say in shaping the hearts and minds of the youth of America.
LBJ was anything but an Aquarian with a stellium in Virgo, but he did have Chiron in Aquarius, as did the aforementioned, Saul Alinsky, which gave them the impetus and propensity to fight for the underdogs and have nots.
There are a number of things that came out of the Great Society that have been worthy contributions to the betterment of Americans lives, like Medicare, but it was a pandora’s box that opened the floodgates to a type of radicalism that mirrored the rebelliousness of the Aquarian ideal of revolution at any cost, by any means necessary.
While Johnson addressed poverty in the formulation of “The Great Society” opening the portal to the welfare state, two professors from The Columbia University of Social Work were not satisfied with the bones that were thrown the poor, which is how they viewed the welfare system at the time, a payoff of sorts, hush money for an interminable condition. Their names were Richard Cloward and Frances Fox-Piven. Their goal? To use strategies inspired by Aquarian radical, Saul Alinsky, and test the inherent flaws of the system against itself, since Alinsky had presciently determined that no system or person could live up to it’s own moral code or belief. Put enough pressure on either and both would crack or collapse under the inherent flaw of all things being imperfect. However, the provocateur knows this and exploits it angles and through indirect means.
Cloward and Piven had decided to work this theory. They first aired it publically in the May, 1966 edition of The Nation in an essay titled, “The Weight of the Poor: A Strategy to End Poverty.”
Cloward and Piven recruited a militant activist from New York’s lower east side named “George Wiley.” Although Wiley was a Pisces (2/26/31) with his Mercury in Aquarius and Moon in Gemini, he had the tools to implement a divide and conquer strategy while being inspired/led by his need to channel his revolutionary thoughts. His chart is an interesting exposition in the dynamics of opposition. Wiley had Venus and Saturn, conjunct in Capricorn (21/19), which opposed his Mars and Pluto in Cancer (28/18). Wiley was driven by extreme opposites and used the system (Capricorn) to fund and organize his need to nurture on a social level (Cancer).
Wiley was no shrinking violet. He and Cloward-Piven targeted liberal, New York Mayor, John Lindsay. Lindsay was a Republican only by name. But it was enough. His term as mayor was marked by a series of strikes that debilitated New York. The strikes were strategic and Cloward-Piven, along with Wiley, followed suit. Wiley demanded that people in New York, not only get the welfare due to them, but more. Wiley and his charges threatened violence in the streets if their demands weren’t met.
Once the model was established in New York, Wiley and his group, “The National Welfare Rights Organization (NWRO), which started in 1967, would have 22,500, dues paying families by 1969. In the September, 27th, 1970 edition of the New York Times, here is what the Times said about Wiley and the NWRO and Wiley’s tactics;
“There have been sit-ins in legislative chambers, including a United States Senate committee hearing, mass demonstrations of several thousand welfare recipients, school boycotts, picket lines, mounted police, tear gas, arrests – and, on occasion, rock-throwing, smashed glass doors, overturned desks, scattered papers and ripped-out phones.”
Wiley’s methods, were radically successful. Sol Stern from “The City Journal” wrote the following;
“From 1965 to 1974, the number of single-parent households on welfare soared from 4.3 million to 10.8 million, despite mostly flush economic times. By the early 1970s, one person was on the welfare rolls in New York City for every two working in the city’s private economy.“
It floored New City’s budget and economy. In 1975, the city of New York declared bankruptcy. The state nearly followed it into insolvency.
Cloward-Piven’s model worked. And they weren’t done.
The next thing they went after were voter rolls.
Three separate groups, two founded by Cloawrd-Piven acolytes, ACORN and Project Vote along with Cloward-Piven’s own, Human SERVE, worked towards the re-vamping of voting regulations, which led to Clinton’s passage of the “Motor-Voter” bill, which both the left and the right have used to flood the precints with dead wood, multiple voters, illegal voters, etc. It created a flaw in the system, which has been evidently exploited in the last three general elections for the POTUS.
Richard Cloward was born on 12/25/26 and had Jupiter in Aquarius at 24 degrees, just two degrees off of Wiley’s Mercury, which made the two a formidable 1-2 punch, with Wiley carrying out the Aquarian strategy handed down by Cloward in his quest to expand the Aquarian revolution into the realms of communistic principles like the abolishment of all private income, for one, universal salary for all. This, was their goal.
Like Wiley, he too had Venus in Capricorn and Pluto in Cancer.
Though I can’t get an exact time, Frances Fox-Piven was a Libra with Moon either in late Aquarius or early Capricorn. In any case, her Moon would set her up as a sympathetic emotional node in the triumvirate of the main progenitors of their break the system strategy.
All of this was born out of Luciferian/Aquarian Alinsky’s playbook.
This insurgency was the same type of tactics that drove the Russian peasants into the hands of the Bolsheviks and all of it was born out of that critical Uranus in Aquarius cycle, which begat the Russian Revolution.
Just an aside, The French Revolution, which lasted nearly ten years, was officially kicked off with the storming of the Bastille on 7/11/1789. Where Pluto was in what sign? Aquarius of course, at 18 degrees, just two degrees off of where Uranus was, when the Russian revolution began.
So the question then becomes; Are cycles and movements manifestations of collective thought and programs downloaded from the event matrix, or are they driven, even consciously at times by forces aware of their esoteric application?
And what is this version of the Age of Aquarius anyway? Is it a revolt against God? Is it a grand agit-prop handed down through the mind of a burning deity that champions the have-nots, the downtrodden sub-species fallen from the grace of the supreme overlord who supposedly turned his back on them when they stepped outside the circle of trust, in a garden long ago?
Is this the only version of the age of Aquarius, some watered-down new age model of socialism with rainbow unicorns and free marriage for all species regardless of sex?
“Change” is an Aquarian axiom that’s been franchised by power brokers who employ it as a strategy for eliminating the competition and securing their power base. You know that the heads of the politburo never had to settle for cold potato soup or winters in Siberia–fresh meat and refuge on the Black Sea in the cold of January for them!
Ultimately, is this version of the Aquarian age an age where everyone is leveled and equal rights are substituted for freedom and tolerance for real compassion?
And what are we forced, either through direct confrontation and law making, or through subtle coercion via social engineering to endure?
Is gay marriage enough to slake the Aquarian thirst for equality or will the next phase become sex rights for children and adults that wish to partake with them?
Where does it end or will it end at all? And is there a positive expression for the Aquarian Age?
Stay tuned as we begin to move out of the shadow of The Aquarian Age.
