The Changing Tides 2019

On 3rd October 2019 Pluto turns stationary direct after 4 months of retrograde movement. This follows only a week or so of Saturn ending its retrograde pattern. These are two of the timing planets, with Saturn measuring in the social / cultural realm and Pluto marking generational transformations.

With this in mind in a week when the next generation directly confronts the ruling classes, and the impending elections of 2020 when for the first time the combined new generations will out-number the baby boomers, these mark a major shift in the social order.

Rather than present another version of the classic astrological reading, I want to comment on what the Sabian symbols offer. The symbols themselves unfold in a five degree pattern with each degree signified by a symbolic form. The reknowned astrologer Dane Rudhyar wrote a book giving a more detailed interpretation of each one. So let us look at three of these, Mars, Saturn and Pluto.

If we take the exact moment that Pluto turns from stationary retrograde to stationary direct then Mars is at exactly 0o Libra, which in Sabian terms is 30o Virgo. For the purposes of this description I will add the 1o Libra symbol to understand what the driving force changes to.

30o Virgo symbol – Totally Intent upon completing an Immediate Task, a Man is Deaf to Any Allurement. It is clear that for any goal or task to be successful a person has to place all their attention and energy towards the task. This is to put every attention on the present actions and forget the past. It is interesting to see that Mars is in opposition to Chiron, the planet of healing which incidently also rules the sign of Virgo. This is where we are, but by the time that Pluto actually moves direct, Mars will be in Libra.

1o Libra symbol – In a Collection of Perfect Specimens of Many Biological Forms, a Butterfly Displays the Beauty of its Wings, its Body Impaled by a Fine Dart. This symbol suggests something extraordinary because the beauty is preserved by the sacrifice. Jesus lasted 2000 years through the sacrifice of crucifixion. So having put all of one’s attention towards transforming the old, there lies the ultimate sacrifice which sets the task aside as of great beauty and worthiness.

15° Capricorn, Saturn Direct – In a Hospital, the Children’s Ward is Filled with Toys. The Keynote here is: The responsibility of society to ensure the welfare and total health of the new generation.

With this symbol it becomes abundantly clear what the previous symbols are referring to. The young Swedish teenager, Greta Thunberg, who with complete focus and dedication has set the task of bringing healing to the planet, and with it she has set herself up as a sacrificial target, whose name, most likely will go down in history.

So the symbol refers to how the pressures of everyday life can easily distort and destroy the future. It points to the claim for socio-political power produces social conditions which endanger the healthy and spiritual unfoldment of a community, and especially of its children. Clearly this is what is happening in this moment.

Finally we come to Pluto. 

21° Capricorn, Pluto is stationary direct – A Relay Race. The point here is that this is not a competition of individuals but between competing for their point of view, their perspectives. Nowhere is this more clear than in the UK Brexit. The symbol suggests that this is a race not a war where the winner takes all. It emphasizes the value of group cooperation and of necessary give-and-take. With so much at stake Pluto marks the territory of Life and Death; the interrelationships of polar opposites. In many ways Pluto has been holding back for the past four months, assessing what is going to happen, where the transformation needs to occur. Now it is about to be unleashed and Pluto always arrives in dramatic fashion. Like many horror movies it circulates in the background, you know its there but you’re not quite sure when it will make its entrance.

The Devic Form

In Christian Tradition, Jesus is quoted as saying “where two or more are gathered in my name, there too am I”. This refers to the energy vortex that is created around intentions or purpose in relationships or in groups when they come together for or focused on a common theme. In mystical traditions it is referred to as a Deva or Devic Form. As it is an energetic form separate from the individuals who form it, it has an independent life of its own.

The famous Theosophist Geoffrey Hodson painted images of what he could see psychically. This picture is said to be a “mountain Deva”, most likely of Mt St John near where Hodson lived in Auckland, New Zealand.

When a Devic form is first produced it takes the shape of two vortexes, one ascending and expanding, and one capping and holding the focal point. The bottom vortex is about two thirds of the height with the top the remaining third.

As the group expands, either through attracting more members, or increasing its commitment and intensity, so too does the energetic Deva increase in size and influence. Things that are successful attract more “investment”.

The lower vortex determines the location or group for the form, and anchors it. The upper vortex sets the direction, or the focus for its purpose and being. It is essential that the two vortexes stay in alignment or the form will break apart, releasing energy in what might be thought of as a psychic storm.

Both vortexes are spinning in the same direction and in harmony or in alignment. The higher the degree of focus, excitement and importance is directed to the form the higher its vibrational and rotational energy becomes. The form will take on a shape and colours associated with its members. All this is food for its existence, but what happens when members start to flag, or pull out of the group?

Leonardo de Caprio and Michael Caine starred in a movie called Inception. The hero has a spinning top that if it keeps spinning lets him know that he is still in a dream world. That is a reality maintaining is energetic focus, but as soon as he arrives into a world disturbed by other forces it starts to lose momentum, wobble and eventually stop. In this fashion he was able to know when he arrived back to normal physical reality.

In a similar fashion a Deva will begin to lose momentum if the focus of the group or the commitment and excitement is lagging. When members drop out or simply no longer turn up to meetings the Deva loses its purpose and begins to wobble too. Although such a form may lose its purpose it often has significant retained energy, and like a top will begin to wander from its location centre. The result is that, often, its energy becomes eccentric, disruptive, and even destructive to the purpose and sometimes to the remaining members. This may be seen as in-fighting, leadership challenges and splitting into alternative focuses.

Under these conditions even individuals can be damaged by uncontrolled Devic thought forms, and this factor can explain many of the conditions that happen, including physical accidents and mental conditions. It is because of this it is advisable that when somebody pulls out of a group process, or is felt to be withdrawing, that a swift and compassionate closure and release is arranged.

The leaving member must be extracted and sent on their way with thoughts for their well-being, and all mental and emotional ties released. Afterwards, it is advisable to reassert the commitment of those remaining, and their commitment to the groups agreed purpose. This is similar to giving the Deva form an extra energy boost, that also repairs its psychic “skin”, and removes any scars that the old member, or other energy forms might attach to.

The group leadership must always remain wary if the Devic vortexes show any signs of wobble, and individually, or with the help of trusted members renew the certainty of the purpose, and identify the source from where the wobble originated. In this way the individuals in the group are held by the Deva, and the Deva is kept on purpose. A healthy group is bound by a healthy Deva.

Winter Solstice 2018 in New Zealand and Why it is Global

As I have pointed out before, New Zealand is the first major country to herald in a new day. This happened when the nations of the world decided, in 1884, where to draw the International Date Line. The world decided to assign NZ as the world light, or the bringer of the dawn.

The winter/summer solstice occurs when the sun reaches its furthest point North on the tropic of Cancer.  The Sabian symbol for the solstice in NZ is with the Ascendant at 3o Pisces. For those who would like to know, the solstice happens at 10.08pm NZDT. There is a Sabian symbol for each of the 360o of the ecliptic. We consider the principle outlined with the symbol when using it in an interpretive way.


KEYNOTE: The power to preserve records of their achievements which is inherent in fully matured cultures.

When a vast group of men succeed in building a culture with strong institutions which express themselves in significant symbols and works of art or literature, such an effort of many generations is rarely lost altogether. In one form or another, records of this culture endure or are mysteriously preserved, simply because they reveal the place and function of this particular culture in the long process of unfoldment of the potentialities inherent in archetypal MAN. It is such a concept that has been mythified and popularized in the religious idea of the resurrection of the dead on the Last Day. The symbol of petrified wood in the Arizona desert, however, tells us that the actual preservation of the records is never perfect or total. Only fragments remain, significant enough to reveal the essential archetypal form.

This third symbol of the sixty-seventh five-fold sequence brings the promise of social immortality — i.e. the preservation of the enduring (because archetypally meaningful) factors in whatever man attempts within his culture. A symbol of INDESTRUCTIBILITY.

The ascendant might answer the question, “where are we up to?” In a time of ‘fake news’, and to be very clear here, all media news is fake. The media and governments are propaganda machines being fed a sequence of stories and lies which they duly pass on and straight-faced insist are true, while the war machine and its PR cohorts gain billions if not trillions of tax-payer funds to create mayhem around the world.

After this, little remains behind, only fragments of the past, broken bodies and souls of those people who were in the way for the great cleanse, and the New World Order for a Global Elite and their slaves. Thus, the rebellion gains momentum, and new generation fights to dominate technology which the system finds hard to control. Others, the elders watch on and fight with them, or stand aside and passively accept the inevitable result. This is an important issue for small and leading countries such as New Zealand, Denmark, Finland, Iceland and possibly Sweden and Australia. The essential ingredient from this symbol is that no matter how much is done the cultural legacy is indestructible.


The symbol for the mid-heaven describes where we’re going, so it says that if we up to this point, whereto from here?


KEYNOTE: Love as a principle of redemption.

Here the soul is presented as a mother whose sons (i.e. her active energies) have become disruptive forces in the collective life of the tribe. She seeks to counteract the karma of their misdeeds through her love and implorations. The soul is responsive to the experience of unity (the spiritual king or chief) but the energies of human nature often follow their self-seeking, divisive tendencies.

This is the fourth symbol of the forty-eighth sequence. It presents us with the value of prayer. The principle of wholeness in man — the soul — acts to offset or attenuate the dictates of karma. In a religious sense, Mary, the Mother, is seen as the Mediatrix, in constant acts of INTERCESSION for the sake of waylaid individuals.

Now here it becomes obvious. Karma must play out that which we, as a family or species, have unleashed on our home and our playground. We’re pleading to the Divine nature for forgiveness for the children of our inaction. There is a sadness to this degree where we, at least the baby boomers, can look back at the sixties and seventies and the “summer of love.” Here was the promise, the rebellion and the hope that we would be the “ones.” And now we are the mainstay of greed and the take and spend generation. This is the generation that had the good times, that own two or three or even a whole “portfolio” of houses which the young can never expect to own. The same people look on their luck, and prosperity as if they have actually done something, rather than being caught in the deliberate plan to create a slave state. These are the people who listen to the PR news and vote into office the criminals that continue to steal and cause war and suffering, and who will be crying they are innocents.


Retrograding (traveling backwards from Earth’s perspective) planets Saturn and Pluto are “stuck” in the 11th house along with the dark moon Lilith. Really these are the limitations, the underworld and the dark belly of humanity and its transformation. The 11th house apart from ruling friendships in our lives, this is the house of our personal liberation. It is a place where we set free from obligations, make turns, recognize our wishes, and realize how great our minds are. This is a house that represents all non-profit organizations, different groups, clubs and societies, as well as higher associations and acquaintances of like-minded attitudes. This house is here to support us and blow wind in our sails, as a place where we find people who approve of our personality without judgment.

The nature of this house also shows everyone in our lives we will talk to in a spontaneous, liberated manner. It is a place where our work gives benefits, the house of our pension and the money we put aside after we’re done with all regular responsibilities. It is the house that rewards all of our career efforts and everything that was done with a goal to truly evolve and become a better person. This is a place of all wishes and desires, and a house we all have to visit often enough to understand the collective a little better. In this regard it is the house of hope for the future. Saturn shows it is the financial system, banks, governments and other traditional organizations where we are stuck. Pluto brings out the underworld and the process of growth through death, that here too we’re stuck. Unable to go forward and backwards is to a tortuous death. Lilith is the underbelly of dark potent sexuality, or the forbidden appearing as an alternative to progress.


Wowee! Doesn’t anything get better? I always love it when astrology feeds back on itself and keeps broadcasting aspects of the same message. When something is hard for us to hear, it needs repeating again and again.

So lets look at where Chiron, the wounded healer sits, at 3o Aries. Chiron may offer us some way out of this crisis


KEYNOTE: The sustaining power of the Whole, as the individual identifies themselves with It’s life.

Having become objectively aware of their nature and basic humanity, the individualizing person finds power and inner security in realizing their essential identity with the section of the universe in which they operate. They and it seem to the consciousness united in a cosmic-planetary process – in a “participation mystique.” Metaphysically expressed, this is the concept of the identity of Atman and Brahman. In another sense, through the ability to identify themselves with the complex of life activities surrounding them, the individual person can become truly, not only an image and representation of the Whole of their natal environment (local, planetary and perhaps eventually cosmic), but an agent through whom the Whole may express itself in an act of creative resonance and outpouring. This is the avatar ideal — the ideal of a “transpersonal” life and consciousness totally consecrated to and directed by a divine Power. This Power can also be conceived as the archetypal Self, the Christ-principle as it operates in and through an individual person and destiny who have become its outward manifestation in order to meet a collective human need.

The concept of the formal-structural identity of the universal macrocosm and the human microcosm is a very important one, as it manifests itself at many levels. It provided an inner sense of security and harmonic strength to archaic man. To the modern individual assailed by surface evidence of meaninglessness and futility it gives a feeling of participation in the vast tide of evolution. It is the answer to the tragic sense of alienation so prevalent today.

This symbol characterizes the third stage of the first five-fold sequence of phases: the stage of PARTICIPATION IN A GREATER LIFE.

I think it is clear that resurrection can only follow on from crucifixion. In this I mean that until a person stands alone and calls out the dishonesty and travesty that surrounds them, nothing changes. The great Master Jesus, as the story says, calls the Hebrew leaders who have sold the synagogue to the highest bidders to account. He shows how they are accepting money for their willingness to sell a specific set of rules and regulations that benefit a few. Nothing has changed. They turn on him, as indeed they must and which He knows will lead to the “passion of Christ.” Jesus knows the sacrifice he will make, that will test him to the edge. It is through this passion He finds eternal life. We’re still remembering Him, talking about Him, looking up to and for Him. But can we find Him, except through the passion, our passion.


Of course there are other points to consider. Venus (the feminine) lies at 9o Leo in an almost exact opposition to Mars (the masculine) at 10o Aquarius.


KEYNOTE: The need to involve one’s most spiritual and vital energies in the creative act’ if it is to produce significant and beautiful new forms.

The breath represents the power of the spirit, animator of all living manifestations. Because the glass blower uses his breath to shape the glass vessels, he is a fitting symbol of how deeply any creative individual has to involve his total being in his creation. He is also using the fire of the spirit — transpersonal inspiration — or, in another sense, the fire of deeply felt emotions. Any creative activity which does not involve both the “breath” and the “fire” cannot transform into beautiful artworks — or indeed into any new form of order — the raw materials, remains of the past (the “sand”).

This fourth stage of the twenty-sixth sequence symbolically shows us the technique required in true and successful transforming activity. It always implies CREATIVE INTENSITY.



KEYNOTE: The need to deal with human beings as persons rather than as screens upon which one projects one’s dream and ideal.

Here we have a final statement on the relationship between mental-spiritual vision and living reality, between persons and the ideal they appear to incarnate, between the “great lover Image” and one’s need for love — a love his presence stimulated and aroused. The “star” on the movie screen is not the actual person. The star’s popularity fades away, the person remains. What has this episode of popularity actually done to the person? This is a question that can be applied to a great variety of circumstances.

This fifth symbol in the sixty-second sequence brings to our attention an issue that is basic and may confront us in various forms. Person versus archetype. This can mean a critical need for SELF-REVALUATION.

So what does this balancing act reveal. In the depth of winter the seed lies dormant but not dead. It is a time of preparation for the greatest act of creative intensity as the New Dawn begins. It is a time for real honest critical self-revaluation, to look yourself into your eyes and see what you are and have become. To discover what is your passion what are you ready to die for? For when you’re ready to die, only then are you ready to live.

I want to apologise to those people who live in other countries. Of course, your moment will be different. Astrology often used Greenwich in the UK as the marker point for the planetary chart. I am saying that it should be the place in which the day starts, and this is more important now as our species is no longer divided by nations, but are unified as a planet.

The American Empire
and the Star Wars

As early as 1977 George Lucas with the behind the scenes help of Joseph Campbell began to warn the American people of what was to come if they continued down the path they were on. Rather than beginning at the beginning they chose to start at the place where to battle lines were drawn.

Episode IV released in 1977 was originally known simply as “Star Wars,” but is actually, unsurprisingly, called “A New Hope.” Anakin Skywalker, taken as a padawan by Obi-Wan Kenobi with the potential to be the greatest Jedi ever, has already fallen to the dark side. He was seen as the prophesied chosen one born to bring balance to the Force. Now he has a mission to destroy his own two children, Princess Leia and Luke Skywalker. Rather than bring balance he is set to destroy the possibility of balance and hand the control of the universe over to the evil Sith Lords.

In order to stop his plot his own mentor sacrifices his life in physical form in order to guide the last Jedi to fulfil the prophecy. In a battle in which he cannot win, Obi-Wan allows Darth Vader to release him from his physical bonds, and become a spiritual being.

Obi-Wan searches and rescues Luke from Tusken raiders, effectively they are human traffickers who make a living out of human misery and slave trading. From here they team up with Han Solo and his wookiee sidekick Chewbacca, who are space smugglers. They are trading in supplies that have been sanctioned by the Imperial Starfleet, the military arm of the Galactic Empire which came from the Galactic Republic after Palpatine’s declaration of the New Order.

They make their way to the planet Alderaan only to find that Vader has destroyed it with the use of the first Death Star. It is destroyed by Luke becoming aligned with the Force aiming two proton torpedoes into the core reactor.
It turns out that the Trade Federation has its own representatives in the Republic Senate to lobby for even greater power. They send their battle droids to invade Naboo to create a government crisis. They have secretly signed on members of Separatist organizations, though their representatives in the Senate deny this.

There is really no need to explain this further because anyone can easily see the parallels with the modern America’s Empire that Donald Trump wishes to implement. The rest of the six part series outlines how this all began, who is behind it and where it will end up. In the movies the Rebellion succeeds but in real life that is nowhere near clear.

The real issue is whether the constitutional Americans wake up, and the rest of the world aligns itself in the Force and brings together a New World Order based on Freedoms and human dignity or we all become slaves to a dominant elite. There are few nations that can meet this threat by themselves which makes it only possible when we, the people, come together in the “Force,” that higher unity brought about through the messages of all the prophets and sages.

There is a shift in consciousness happening whether we like it or not. It only depends on whether it is a shift to the Dark Side or a evolutionary shift to World Peace. Nobody can escape this, so you will have to decide whether you will join the Revolution, or become one of the Clone army.

What we do next is the beginning of a revolution that will transform human consciousness and establish spirit as the dominant force. The alternatives are as the evangelists would have us believe, there will be Armageddon and the destruction of the physical plane. It will not, however, build a New Jerusalem for the favoured few, but reap karma for all those who ceased to stand up for, and bring Eden (peace, love and justice), to this experience.


The Creation of the Universe Myth of the Nahua People

excerpt from Julie Black, commentary Nagual Paco

In the beginning there was nothing; nothing at all. No light, no life, no consciousness, no movement, no breath. In the beginning of time and in the Void the Oldest of Old Gods, Ometeotl, was formed.

Toltec tradition says there are two possibilities, the Nagual and the Tonal. The Nagual is the eternal nothingness, more generally known as the unknowable or unspeakable. The Tonal is everything else; everything that can be named or distinguished.

It is the nature of things that Ometeotl, Creator of the Universe, was both masculine and feminine. This is why the Supreme First God was able to create himself-herself, because he-she could bear life alone. And so it was that the Oldest of Old Gods began the Creation in the dark emptiness that was nothing.

The Nagual is neither masculine or feminine, or both. One is active and the other receptive. Both are equal and dissimilar. Like calculus in mathematics, there is a need for differentiation as much as for integration. To value the heart over the mind is as imbalanced as valuing logic over intuition.

Ometeotl was the first existence to be. This Oldest of Old Gods was therefore, everything that was. When everything exists in one being, all opposites unite. The Creator is both generator of chaos and giver of harmony and order. Ometeotl is both spirit and matter, fire and water, black and white, stillness and movement, life and death, creator and destroyer, and the embodiment of good and evil. Because of this, the Oldest of Old Gods is called the God of Duality, and is the divinity where opposites converge in a supreme manifestation of The All.

In the nothingness of the Void, Ometeotl, The First God, created himself-herself, thought himself-herself up, invented himself-herself, in order to initiate The Beginning, and thus generate all that would exist thereafter. Giver of life and the one who takes it away, the Oldest God both creates and destroys in order to generate Ollin, the sacred movement in continuum, which gives impulse to our world.

In the Nagual nothing can exist but potential resides until there is the slightest movement (action) which creates both Time (active) and Space (the container). The emergence of the Tonal or impulse for our world, comes from the differentiation of opponents (polarity) and the ensuing integration into All That Is.

The Eris Factor – Discordance

I wrote a blog post some time ago on the planet Eris. Following the political, climatic and geophysical events of the last few months I feel it time to write another. Few astrologers seem to have commented on the nature and influence of Eris and I think this is quite an oversight. In homeopathy the greater the dilution factor the greater the potency of the remedy, which works at deeper levels and over a greater period of time. The same applies to the outer planets in astrology, and Eris is the outermost of all in the solar system.

Saturn is the last planet that is seen with the naked eye, meaning has the greatest impact on the physical world. Beyond that we find Uranus the first planet representing consciousness with generational influences. Actually, to be totally correct astrologically, we have the captured comet Chiron lying between Uranus and Saturn, which is said to rule healing, but because it rules the sign of Virgo I suggest it also represents science in its true nature of revealing truths.

Beyond Uranus comes the giant Neptune followed by the demoted dwarf planet and moon, Pluto and Charon, and finally the tiny dwarf Eris of which we know very little astronomically. The relationships between these outer planets is a commentary on the way things are transforming. They are transforming because the central planet of the outer three is Pluto, the planet of transformation.

However, the main point of this blog is the present, and the patterns that are in action. Eris has been in the sign of Aries since 1927 and will remain until 2049, however at this particular moment Uranus will cross over an exact conjunction with Eris in early March 2017, exactly when the Sun is transversing Aries as well. All this while that conjunction is squaring Pluto in the sign of Capricorn. This means that what astrologers are generally saying is potentised by the deeper influences activated by Eris.

ishtarTo really understand this we need to remember that Eris was the only Goddess not invited to the wedding of Peleus and Thetis. Peleus and his brother Telamon killed their half-brother Phocus, and that left something that needed investigation. Thetis bore the child Achilles and dipped him in the river Styx to give him immortality. Unfortunately she held him by the heel and that left him with a vulnerability. This demonstrates that there something can emerge from this relationship that seems to offer safety but which has a serious flaw.

The goddess of discord and chaos, Eris brought a golden apple to the wedding on which was inscribed “to the fairest”. When she rolled the apple into the feasting guests it was fought over by Hera, Aphrodite and Athena. Paris was chosen to decide to whom it belonged. He chose Aphrodite because she promised he would marry the most beautiful woman, which turned out to be Helen of Troy. The “apple of discord” is a euphemism for the crux of a small argument that leads to a great dispute that leads to war.

daughtersEris had 14 daughters: Ponos (Pain/Toil/Labour), Lethe (Forgetfulness/Oblivion), Limos (Famine), the Algea (Pains/Sorrows), the Hysminae (Fightings/Combat), the Machae (Battles/Combat), the Phonoi (Murders/Slaughters), the Androctasiae (Manslaughterers), the Neicea (Quarrels), the Pseudea (Lies/Falsehoods), the Amphillogiae (Disputes), Ate (Ruin/Blind folly), Horcus (Oath), and Dysnomia (Anarchy/Lawlessness).

From these you can see what the fruits of Eris’s labour are. How many of these have we born into our world? Yet it didn’t have to be that way. It was only because Eris was barred from the wedding that she bore malice. As I pointed out in my last blog, like all planets Eris has two sides, one is Divine Justice and the other is Divine Retribution. She brings to the surface those things that need to be healed. Something that is covered up will continue to fester until it is exposed or made transparent.

As we enter this new paradigm, and to simplify and de-mystify it, I will say in the age of the internet of things, it is easier to create false flag episodes as well as present exposure. So what happened when Eris entered Aries in 1927? Look it up.

great-flood-victimsHere are some of the interesting things. In China an earthquake measuring 8.6 on Richter scale struck Xining, killing 200,000 people. More major than the meagre ones happening now. Josef Stalin took control in Russia and expelled Trotsky. Stalin took charge of the death of between 34 to 49 million people. The greatest national disaster in US history was the Great Mississippi Flood which affected 700,000 people. Water flooded an area of twenty-seven thousand square miles. Staying with the US, striking miners from the Columbine Mine were massacred with machine gun fire at Serene by Colorado State Rangers. In Britain, a 1000 people a week died from an influenza epidemic, and the list goes on.

uranusIt is also interesting that in 1927, Uranus was also conjuncting with Eris even though Eris had not come into human consciousness. At that time, Pluto was not in the picture at all, whereas it is now the focus of what is known as a T-square. Jupiter is opposing Uranus/Eris, with both squaring Pluto. Pluto being the planet of transformation tells us that in order to move forward, to evolve, to expand our position (Jupiter), we have to come to terms with a radical shift (Uranus) towards bringing in the principles inherent in the Aquarian age, Responsibility, Accountability, and Transparency. If we cannot make that radical shift then Eris’s daughters will make their presence felt even more.

How you choose to interpret this in line with the present situation around the globe I leave up to the individual. I have noticed that world events are systemic consequences of national ones, which arise from very personal experiences and actions. The reality is that we all do get what we deserve. Events occur, but it is how you choose to respond that matters. There is a story told about Gurdjieff who was in Paris during the Nazi occupation. Asked how it was for him, he replied “what are you talking about? What has this to do with anything?” He continued to live and continue his work as before. There might be disruptions, but this is to be expected as Eris brings in the needed justice, or the retribution. As I mentioned in my previous post, the statue of Eris has always stood on top of the Old Bailey courthouse in London.

So what does mean in practical terms? What predictions can I make? Many people are looking for predictions as a way to defend and protect themselves from what is going to happen. Actually, the only thing that is going to happen is what you create fro yourself. At this time too, so many people are struggling to get into their hearts, as if this too is the solution. Accompanying this is the idea the head, thinking, is the trouble maker, that the heart is all about loving and not also about desiring. If you were to distinguish between the two wouldn’t that require the head? You can have the best intentions, the most profound realisations, the most loving feelings, but unless you put these into practice then how useful were they? The old saying is so true; “the streets of hell are paved with good intentions”.

Eris brings this to the foreground. By our own actions will we be judged. With the unexpected influence of Uranus, Eris delivers to us instant karma. It is not for us to worry what is another’s justice, only that we stay present and responsive. Eris will bring what is personally needed, never fear, unless you are being dishonest with yourself or others.

Astrology and December 2012

Time and dates are interesting concepts. It wasn’t until the late 18th century that standardised time even existed. Up until then time was a natural phenomenon. The sun rose in the morning at the start of the day and went down at night. The winter day was shorter than summer, when more time was needed for harvesting.

Mechanical clocks were in use, of course, but their accuracy was in question unless they were kept stable. This meant that measuring time on a boat was impossible, and so it was not possible to determine a boat’s actually position. Then, the rotating gimble was invented which allowed exact positions to be calculated. This in turn allowed accurate maps to be made. By the late 1700 the first railway timetable was drawn up and the British Parliament passed a law standardising Greenwich Mean Time.

As we come to the end of 2012 Gregorian calendar, time and date has less validity because of globalisation and the ability of technology to communicate across the planet at any time. The upshot of this is that ideas based on numbers, such as 12-12-2012 are only valid to those that use this calendar. These are man-made configurations. Time is a measure of cycles. A day is the passage of sunrise to sunrise the following day, ie the cycle of the rotation of the Earth. A month is the rotation of the moon around the Earth. A year is the rotation of the Earth around the Sun and so on. Then man manipulated these cycles to fit with a mechanical and equal measures.

The point is that the natural measure of time is the movement of the planets, and these planetary rotations are not equal but effect one another. From this we discover that at the end of any “Long Count” there has to be a planetary configuration. With this in mind 12-12-2012 is less relevant that 13-12-2012 because this day has the last new moon (conjunction of Sun and Moon) of the year. What this new moon bring forth finds its fulfilment at the full moon on 28th December at the beginning of the “three days of darkness”. These are not likely to be physically dark, unless the transition period incorporates a collapse in the electrical grids that connect most of the world. That can easily be put out of action by an EMP (electro-magnetic pulse) whether solar or man-made.

Breaking through Addiction

Merc gave a session quite a long time ago about how much human beings are addicted to substances and behaviours. He says that by labelling a behaviour as a habit gives it a semblance of respectability. But it is as it is, an addiction.

Like any addiction something that has a hold over you requires a determination to free oneself. In the old religious terminology this was seen as the work of the devil. There are three levels of distinctions in the mental field; belief, conviction and certainty. In order to begin to unravel the grip of the addiction a person has to detach from the certainty by acknowledging that it has its power because you are convinced you have no choice. This word derives from the latin vincere – to win or overcome. When you convince yourself you can overcome the feeling you choose freedom. You realise that you are being controlled by a belief which actually has no substance.

Substance is that on which you are standing, or the position that you are taking. All along the way you begin to identify that you are in charge, you decide, you are the YOU that is upholding this position. For the position you hold no-thing can be different. Now is your Point of Power. Now is the only moment you have to change your position.

invest1“Invest in Youself” has come alive to provide inspiration, motivation and provide services that give tools to build a personal quintuple value. That is tools for the basis of financial security, the framework for a sustainable home/work environment, tools for building sound social/collegiate/relationships, tools for discovering a deeper understanding of self, and access to a higher wellspring of knowledge.

These values make up a golden key to Health, Wealth and Wisdom. The key to the “authentic self” is an acceptance of the whole of yourself, as you are. So often we try to present in a way that is acceptable to others and in the process become compartmentalised to ourselves. In fact comparting over a span of time may be the biggest cause to the problems a person has.

Integration is the mathematical opposite to differentiation.  If the geological definition is used then, differentiation is any process in which a mixture of materials separates out partially or completely into its constituent parts. Integration is when separate parts become one whole.
