Radical Gemini


At 8:09am UTC/GMT this morning, July 31st 2021, Ceres entered tropical Gemini to join Black Moon Lilith and the Moon’s north node in the mutable air sign. The radicalisation and enhanced definition they will bring to the mental sphere over much of the remainder of 2021 are going to give the Geminian qualities of awareness, communication and thinking a more visceral potential, capable of producing much needed changes in our current life experiences.

What this means in real terms, through engaging with this energy, is that where our talk is loudest already, especially where it is aimed at the most contentious issues affecting both our immediate personal circumstances and our collective future, the noise is not only going to increase but, instead of distracting from and concealing the essential truths, will become more effective in punching through to the core of these matters, to the signal hidden within the noise.

It is the realisation of the potential that the underlying signal of our times carries which Ceres and BML are now helping us realise over much of the remainder of 2021 and an early part of 2022. This presents as both undeniable realities being brought into the open from states in which they have been obscured and obfuscated, in many instances where they have been hidden in plain sight, and through the exposure of the manner in which they have been used and manipulated to achieve certain ends and create an illusory reality in the process.

By mid-year 2022 we will be seeing the fruits of these times bear seed and it is our task now to engage fully with this powerful opportunity to not only change our focus, clarify our minds and get very real, but to seriously change gear and, in so doing, wrest our sovereign rights as ‘active agents of our own future’ back from all illegitimate usurpers of our own powers of self determination.

This is powerful medicine for these times and the combined presences of Ceres and Black Moon Lilith in tropical Gemini will deliver, if we pay adequate attention and respect to them. It is in their nature to dive deep, get into the hard core tough talking nature of the moment, and not back down. They embody aspects of commitment to our well being and self determination that have been systematically eroded within both the collective and personal spheres while we have been subjected to the “covid” phenomenon. These are now coming to the fore, as a major issue in the public discourse, but the restoration promised here is, as Ceres and Black Moon Lilith indicate, an intense and demanding process – we are negotiating not only for our future, but our ability to negotiate it at all.

Ceres and Black Moon Lilith teach hard core lessons in survival, as both a high art and an expression of raw power. There is an emphasis on material nourishment and sustenance built into this lesson – we must get very real about how well prepared we are for self sufficiency, get our supplies well stocked and know our strategies well. We must become intimate with our own territory and its boundaries and not let them be violated. Ceres in Gemini oversees the food supply chain, and Black Moon Lilith speaks directly to all aspects of non-dependency that we can realise in this respect.

Their joint transit finds three points of intensity, the first being on August 8th when their first conjunction takes place around 10am UTC in the ninth degree of Gemini. This coincides exactly with the Sun’s arrival at the midpoint of tropical Leo.

For many this is an important date in the solar calendar as it marks the highpoint of what some know as the ‘Lion’s Gate’ transit, where the Sun transits the cross quarter midpoint between the June solstice and following equinox – this one, being associated with Leo, is the astrological equivalent to the Celtic fire festival Lughnasadh, to Lammas and the Harvest festival of the northern sphere. But, in esoteric astrological lore these midpoints are also known as the Gateways of the Avatar.

What this tells us is that our highest potentials are at stake now, as well as our survival. The two are intimately connected as the one potentiates the other. At all stages of survival, in all scenarios, the embodiment of our highest potential is essential. Within the mental sphere this speaks to self leadership as the guiding voice within, being able to see, from the command position, what must be done, and assuming that position in our actions.

The ensuing period of deepened engagement, roughly through to the next cross-quarter festival around Samhain, holds the potential for us to shift our own personal position to our own advantage and in so doing shifts the centre of gravity of the collective field back towards its roots, among the people.

The second point of intensity comes with Ceres stationing retrograde in the 13th degree of Gemini on October 9th 2021. Ceres rx deepens the intensity, sharpens the focus and brings an added gravitas to the issues now under Geminian scrutiny. She brings out her chthonic nature and the unbendingly fierce commitment to embody her role as the Great Earth Mother, that makes her willing to fight her corner in protection of her children against all odds – regardless the opposition, she will not back down.

We have seen these energies building over the course of this year but here we enter the crucial period in which the opportunity exists for the weight of collective and individual power to reclaim lost ground and build strong integrity, a collective empowering of individual rights. For this to be really effective a third factor must be brought into full play.

At the third point, the intensity is increased further, when the second conjunction of Ceres and BML in Gemini sees the more plutonic side of Ceres nature igniting Lilith’s equally unbending insistence on raw truth. Here we will see the search for and deepened examination of ‘the facts’ begin to manifest powerful truths. These are truths that have the power to radically undermine and bring catastrophic collapse to the deceptions and lies that have been used to justify the development of our current situation. We will see how they have been used in justification of falsity and illusion.

The facade must fall, and for this to happen the fearless energy and penetrating insights of Ceres and BMLworking together is entirely fitting, and necessary.

When coupled with Eris tightening square with Pluto, a prolonged and relentless struggle to expose and subvert the darkest aspects of the plutocracy, and with the third and final hit of the Uranus Saturn square coming up towards the end of the year, the Ceres Black Moon Lilith transit of tropical Gemini brings a much needed determination and grit to our collective mental energies and thinking and has the potential to inspire a new level of personal clarity and purpose – the astrology of the last quarter of 2021 is spectacularly peppered with ignition points which this purposefulness would do well to be applied to – this is no time to pull our punches.

To finish mapping out this period, Ceres conjuncts the Moon’s north node and subsequently regresses back into Taurus on the solstice, 21st December 2021, stationing direct again on January 14th 2022, transits the NN again on the 25th of January, this time in Taurus, and re-enters Gemini on the 9th of February.

Ceres return to Taurus will expose key elements of our relationship with Earth that need to be redressed and brought to the table – these are non-negotiable aspects of both our human and Earth rights which are under threat, aspects of our biological and physical nature that are in danger of being irrevocably damaged and changed, to our own detriments. Hard truths which must now be heard and spoken loud and clear.

Between February 9th and the 14th April of 2022, Ceres and BML resume their joint transit of Gemini, and with Ceres orbit being at its closest to the Earth during this time, this powerful little planet is accelerating fast, her journey through tropical Gemini now taking just 15 weeks.

It is worth noting that Ceres north node enters Gemini from the sign of Cancer on November 26th 2021, the day at which Ceres reaches maximum elevation in the night sky and is closest to Earth, at her Perigee. Her orbit between those of Mars and Jupiter lend her visibility at this time and you will be able to observe her close to the fixed star Aldebaran in the forehead of the Bull when she is at her brightest and opposite the Sun, at midnight UTC on 27th November.

On December 18th Black Moon Lilith crosses Ceres north node at 17° Gemini, and, although the meeting of the Moons apogee and the point of Ceres path across the ecliptic may be somewhat intangible, it is a symbolic turning point in their affairs. We are potentiating and seeding our own futures here.

Ceres meets with her own north node on February 6th 2022, just three days before re-entering Gemini – Ceres period of recapitulation in Taurus will be over. Think well on our future and make best use of these transits of Ceres and Lilith’s dark aspect, as the push for completion of their business will see this period of dynamic, meaningful and penetrative thinking begin to bear fruit – we will have to wait until mid May when Ceres enters Cancer to see first signs of what is being seeded now, through these developments, coming fully into manifestation and taking root.

The next time Ceres and Black Moon Lilith meet up is 26th May 2022 at 5° Cancer, and a wholly different context will be coming into play by then.

“stupidity got us into this mess, and stupidity will get us out” –
Homer Simpson

Lifting the lid on pandora’s box, take #?…


“in the beginning we were given instructions on how to be a human being—a human being that would take care of the land, and love the land. We were given teachings to act as a foundation to having a good life. These teachings would be connected to a sacred relationship with the land. These teachings would support the natural laws of Mother Earth. For thousands and thousands of years, our ancestors lived by those teachings and original instructions.

Then the invasion began. What is important for us to realize today is to acknowledge what helped us endure and survive these dark times, and still today we must continue to endure. Colonization is very much a continued imposition in our lives.

During the darkest times of our history, it was our way of life that helped us survive to this day.

It was the ones who remained loyal and true to the original instructions we were given as a people by our Creator…

Those who kept the ceremonies going underground…

Those that kept the sacred fires burning…

Those that continue to speak the languages of our people…

Those that sang the songs of the land, of the ancestors.

And so it is today, that we must rely on those who have kept the sacred fires burning…

Those that keep our lodges going…

Those that speak the languages of our people…

The language is really the language of the land itself.”

How do you square that with the imposition of

The timing would have been the same, regardless the date –
this is a scheduled announcement :

On March 11th 2020 the World Economic Forum launched a covid business task force with over 200 of the most powerful corporations on the planet, a list that has grown more than five fold since then; the very same day the WEF partnered with the WHO and ,”hey presto”, the very same day they announced the ‘pandemic’.

How do you deal with the untouchables?

The predatory corporate technofascist leviathan has a thousand heads, more than 2000, and counting, actually, but, the ‘architects’ at the top of this food chain require these lieutenants to merely organise the infrastucture – the game plan is decided elsewhere.

…but, it didn’t say that in my horoscope! 

Big data is the new armoury, the new market, the new casino.
And you are being groomed to become a chip.

Hyperdata centres have been projected within the model of the so called “Great Reset” to account for one third of energy consumption – thats right, one third of the global grid.

Their ‘green’ is red, an afterimage, by trick of the light.

But, remember, we may all be,
in some sense,
being engineered to operate within
and being shepherded to function
as slaves to the new feudal dictatorship,
but we did not design the system,
it is not our system,
and we don’t have to subscribe
to its dictates;
even if we diverge minimally,
it is the divergence
that makes the difference…

But, before we go, a word from our sponsors….

Saturn, Jupiter and Pluto, can be identified with the top down end of the decision making process, and they have been working in unison since December 2019.

That just happens to be coincidental with both Jupiterʼs ingress to tropical Capricorn and the first publicly reported cases of the Corona Virus and the seeding of the threat of the virus spreading.

Let us not forget

This relates directly to
our capacity for
individual thinking
and creativity.

Decisions here are personalised –
even in the apparent midst
of imposed conditions,
we can be self determining.

This time last year
a creative energy was beginning to flourish
and find expression
during Venus retrograde in Gemini,
building its own momentum,
and it continued to do so
until Venus exited the shadow zone
of her retrograde,
at the end of July.

That was our signal.
Did you catch it,
amidst the ‘noise’?

(In the meantime
the same old narrative
churning away
trying to mould our minds
into a sufficiently malleable state
of submission to make
personal decision making
a thing of the past……)

“Those who kept the ceremonies going underground…

Those that kept the sacred fires burning…

Those that continue to speak the languages of our people…

Those that sang the songs of the land, of the ancestors.

And so it is today, that we must rely on those who have kept the sacred fires burning…

Those that keep our lodges going…

Those that speak the languages of our people…

The language is really the language of the land itself.”

A Passion For Life

 
 
Throughout the current lunation a time of gathering momentum and pushback has been making itself more and more visible in the world, and this now reaches a threshold moment with the full Moon in Scorpio.
 
The energy which this gathering momentum embodies is seeking to act upon raised awareness, coupled with the twin powers of interrelationship and personal choice, and this is nowhere more visible than when the hearts and minds of the people are given voice and demonstrated publicly. It is also clearly reflected in the astrology of the moment.
 


Possibly the most spectacular example of this over the last few days was the big march in London on Saturday 24th April. This took place just as the Moon was transiting into the UK’s first house (whole sign) and transiting cj Uranus in the UK chart.
 
This embodiment of public power and consciousness focused on showing solidarity in awareness. It manifested a freedom of choice that goes against the grain of authoritarian conformity, an awareness that is capable of seeing beyond the ‘illusions of reality’ which such conformity relies on to prevail.
 
The planetary movements of the moment saw a stellium of planets in tropical Taurus reflecting a unified field of adroit awareness that is very much on the rise and on this occasion directly challenged the dictates of power as embodied in the UK’s eight house Mars.
 
Coming up against Mars in a ‘power over’ position requires courage, but, numbers make the difference and takes such personal power to another level.
 


This was a united effort bringing together the combined forces of the Sun, Mercury, Uranus and Venus in Taurus, reflecting precise embodiment in time and place through the lunar transit. But, this stellium in Taurus also squared transiting Saturn perfectly and now, as the Moon comes to fullness, comes close to the mid-point of the UK national chart’s Venus Saturn opposition.
 
We will see this midpoint triggered over the coming days as Venus and Mercury move away from Uranus, which brings us back to the significance of this full Moon in particular.
 
The full Moon in Scorpio brings these matters of freedom and non-compliance to a crucial moment, the threshold moment, upon which their effectiveness going forward very much rests.
 
This is the wave that must be surfed, its energy sustained and embodied, given prolonged expression, so that its effect can continue to build and fully realise its potential as the truly effective catalyst for change it seeks to become. It must be sustained to ensure that it remains strong enough to effectively oppose ‘the forces of conformity and containment’ which this collective expression of energy defies.
 
There is a circle of reciprocity being engendered in this moment, between the inner and the outer, between individual and collective action.
 


Every person aligning themselves with this energy is a carrier of its seed potential. And, even though the power of the collective manifests personal power at another level, beyond the individual, a level which can achieve the degree of change needed, it all rests on the willingness of the individual to fully embody their personal potential, and that means personal truth, to as high a degree as possible for that power to rise sufficiently.
 


Its been said many times before, but, this cannot be more clearly put. A collective force of empowered individuals is unstoppable, a truth the authorities know all too well.
 


Saturn and Uranus reflect this current dynamic well and, being triggered, they reveal the truth.
 


But, while the current debacle is out in the open, seen more fully for what it is, with every moment, by more and more people, this is not simply about raising a revolutionary spirit, opposing the orthodoxies of power and resisting their dictates.
 
This is about becoming a fully embodied protector of both the human and the planetary soul, a role which can be more fully realised and evolved into through allowing the momentum now being generated to take our awareness to yet higher levels still.


In the midst of distraction, the tension and chaos of the moment can no longer hide this underlying truth – we are, it has been said, experiencing all this for this very purpose.
 


The Sabian symbols for the Sun, the Moon and Saturn’s degrees resonate strongly here.
 


The Sun’s degree speaks of awareness funded by recognition of natural cycles and how they are the foundation of all change, including that which we are engaged with now.
 

The Moon’s degree tells us that this moment is about being receptive to the radiance of higher powers , of “being a soul that can reflect love’s light”, and bringing the transcendent Venusian aspect of relating into an active role in our own self realisation.
 


Saturn’s degree speaks of how the natural laws and facts which allow us to plan in advance for action are also fully manifest at this time, grounding the awareness we are generating.
 
 
There is an antidote at work here, to the destructive anti-soul that is seeking to dominate our future, which can be easily sensed at this time, if not given name to.
 
Here we are being asked to appreciate the wider sweep of time, how the great natural cycles work through present time, and how this awareness gives our perception and understanding the depth and breadth the soul needs to not only become more fully grounded in the present, but to spread its influence and become greater in its own presence.
 
Working with this awareness in the present strengths the soul, engenders a fuller manifestation of its own natural environment, which reaches beyond time constraints, and allows us to work in harmony with the planetary level of soul.
 
At an individual level, it rests upon our ability to hold quiescence within and to embody attentive receptivity, receptivity to higher orders of awareness and intelligence as they are manifest on this planet. We can sense these and integrate with them through nature, through natural cycles and through our ability to divine the present, to ‘see’.
 
Together this T square shows us how adopting a future oriented imagination and our capacity to be receptive to inspirational powers are working in balanced and reciprocal relationship, and how this is mediated through a certain knowing, that “planning for the future is possible because the potential (or seed) of the future is already operating at the core of the present”.
 


I’ve said it many times over the years, but, humans are here to fully embody ‘seeing’, as life’s most natural gift. This can take many forms, each with a resonance belonging to a specific soul group, and there are many soul groups which we might chose to join when we are born, one for every degree of the zodiac in fact.
 
The soul groups belonging to the Sun, Moon and Saturn’s degrees at full Moon will be particularly activated by this energy and this is crucial to our moment.
 

Essentially it is about taking care for our soul’s and the planetary soul’s health and well being – humans carry such a profound potential, and in so many ways, what we are fighting for now is the right and ability to fulfil this potential.
 


There is one small caveat to this moment which the planetary matrix is indicating at the human level – at full Moon Neptune forms an exact semi-square to the Sun, and sesqui-quadrate to the Moon. This apsect speaks to inequalities, both in awareness and in personal reach.
 
The dynamic here, which is a potential source of friction and distraction in its own right if not handled with care, tends to manifest through labelling and separation, through creating real problems out of virtually nothing. This can become apparent through false arguments surrounding identity and difference, something which we are all too familiar with right now.
 
But, this too must be transcended, accommodated into a more inclusive view, the aim being to become bigger than the personal difference or slur, and to not at any point lose sight of the bigger picture.
 


Neptune’s soul vibration is both deeply compassionate and redemptive, if it finds resonance, but, here it is the Neptunian shadow that feeds small fights, which in turn feed the larger ones, and these are to be avoided now at all levels.
 
The higher side prevails.
 
While there is no escaping this reality either, this too is an opportunity for growth, if we chose to make it so, and those who know how to turn this difficulty to their own evolutionary advantage can also aid others in doing so in turn.
 
The twist to Neptune’s tail is in the fact that by accepting the anomaly of our own fully embodied individuality, our uniqueness, we not only disarm the insurrecting power of difference, but turn it into a movement towards home. An ensouling movement.
 


The point is, those who are ready to seize the day, ride the wave and are capable of leading through example, are the same souls whose actions and words will stand the greatest chance of nourishing our collective evolution. Chosing such a path will keep the momentum going and, ultimately, if grounded in the dedicated heart, will keep the sacred flame burning. There is a passion for life at work in this Scorpio full Moon.
 
Let that be an inspiration for each of us….
 
Blessed Be!

Venus and the New Moon

What if I were to tell you that things were never going to get back to ‘normal’. You’d probably say “damn right”, and “we don’t mean them to either”, no?

Or this. That the lockdown was going to have lasting effect, will change our lives for ever, and that we may never return to the same degree of freedoms we had before 2020 began. Less appealing, that one?

How about if I said that your liberty is no longer your choice? I imagine you’d either call BS, say something to the effect of “over my dead body” or at the least feel a sharp pang of the discomfort that being in enforced ‘lockdown’ has made familiar over the last two months or more, no? No fear of, or dread at the prospect?



I mean, how many would simply go along with the third of these scenarios, willingly, even though we know that they are all on the collective radar right now.

Well, here’s the deal….in one part of the zodiac we have a triad of planets that are busy holding us hostage to making all three of the above a reality, one way or another, while another group of heavenly bodies half way across the heavens are saying “nope’, ‘ain’t going to be like that”, and between them is a third group who are setting both groups to either “put up or shut up”, and will use both force and coercion, agitation and deception, to that end, and are playing both devil’s advocate and divine provocateurs in the process.

This new Moon in Gemini has spawned all kinds of bright and shiny forecasts for the next month and the encouragement that they bring is going to help a great many people cope with the current prospects, at least for a moment.

But, tomorrow is another day, and unless you want it to be just like the one that has gone before, which is almost the normative experience now and possibly the best ‘option’ for far too many, the real and most urgent answer to all those planetary inputs is this :

“Get on your feet and stand up for your rights. Period. ‘Cos that is what is at stake here, friends and folks.”

We are not talking human rights here either – they can be changed, any time, by those who hold the power of State, legislation and economic control.

No, these are what in common law are called “God given rights” – inviolable, indigenous to you as a natural born human and the stronger of the two, by far, if you are ready and able to stand up for them and exercise them.

Thing is, not pushing those who have suffered horribly at ‘the hands of the virus’ aside, the people who have probably been least affected by the conditions surrounding the Covid19 pandemic are those for whom solitude and the opportunity and space this gives to explore that fertile inner space is in fact ‘the norm’, and a desirable norm at that; the artists, the creative and curious, the meditative, thinkers, imaginers and the lovers of nature – they at least are going to have a good chance at making something useful out of this situation, in spite of it all, no?

You’ve seen the memes…..artist before, artist during, artist after….showing the same image.

Yes, even the meme is a pastiche on reality, which should be obvious but tickles the mind curiously with an undisclosed truth, which can also be felt and sensed.

Those endowed with the mindset and approach to our current circumstances that will benefit the most are fortunate, if this is indeed the case, but the Gemini lunation pulls focus on this, brings it under the spotlight of our personal lives, and in so doing draws attention to the wider issues at stake and asks the question – beyond all that, WHAT IS BEING BIRTHED in this moment, in this time?

How well prepared are you to answer this question, what are your inner resources, can you turn a dream into reality, the dream you have always known was living inside you, waiting to be given its chance.

Well, this is it. In spite of everything.

Venus retrograde, with Mercury enspiriting her step, say this is where to pay attention, and what to tap into, that birthing energy of something more desirable than anything that has led to this ridiculous impasse, and any passivity with which its oppressive restrictions are being met.

Sure. But this is way deeper than is obvious from simply getting heart centred and kushti with the vision of “a more beautiful world you know is possible”.

This is not the time for romantic idealism, but for radical, anomalous, and lastingly conceived birthing, and ‘action’.

Venus in these circumstances is, actually, fucking kick-ass!

Venus is inconjunct the heavy triad of Saturn, Jupiter and Pluto centred around Cardinal earth, an aspect that makes Her energies and values, and influence on our actions, dissociated from but indirectly connected with this authoritarian trio and their orthodoxies of control and magnanimous disruption.

Its not that she ignores, doesn’t see or hear their shenanigans, how can She not? No.

Regardless, She goes deep into her own inner world and pulls up a new resource, taps into a deep vein and retrogrades through her own inner transformation and as She does so indicates the process that this new energised creative focus must take for us too.

To be focused on being unconditioned in our expression, is an essential, but, to move from the mysterious and profoundly dreaming night time universality of the Evening Star, her more romantic guise you might say, into the dream grounding sensual beauty making guardian of reality that the Morning Star brings into our skies and world over the next 10 months – that is the key to unlocking these times She offers.

That is where She’s at.

She is the undaunted amazonian warrior spirited self leader we all need to embody.

She is the fearless protector of the planet Earth.

She exists in us all, the indigenous memory and realisation of which has, in all reality, been burned, dogmatised, programmed from the core of our knowing and being by a murderous intent whose time is now up.

Except, that memory cannot be extinguished. it lives on.

It is up to each of us how we respond, but, make no mistake – there is not a person alive who can’t, who does not have the necessary spark.

Unusual times require unusual responses, and, as some wise fool once said, the world does not suffer from too much imagination, but, too little.

These are gritty times, make no mistake – this is not an illusion, and you know it. It is a challenge, The Challenge.

Mars and Neptune are converging in Pisces, squaring the Geminian resurgence.

Use the energy of Mars to roll that grit, thats stuck in the craw of your deepest knowing, into a pearl of exquisite and shimmering beauty and untold value, that illuminates the spiritual realm within the zodiac that Jupiter and Neptune preside over with the inextinguishable phosphorescence of your imagination come alive.

There is a dream waiting to be acknowledged in there, in your heart, and you know it full well.

Take this opportunity, while the planets support us, to give it the chance at reality it deserves.

There is a world crowning into existence at this moment.

Get with this beat, pick up this pulse and RAISE A COUNTER CULTURE that will eclipse the ‘paradigm of control’ that the triad of heavy hitters in Capricorn/Aquarius would see prevail.

‘They’ have their part to play in all this, for sure, grist to the mill of millennia, and shapers of the future that has now become our pressing present reality for too long, without a doubt, but the question here is, whose future and who decides?

The answer is in your hands and mine.

Blessed be!

The highest need of re-emergence, when it is time, is to do so within a landscape of realisations which by virtue of their own true nature demand to be grounded in life. This is not a landscape that is pre-packaged and predetermined for us to be accepted without question, or which bears no respect for life. This can no longer happen – that particular genie is well and truly out of the bottle. These are realisations born of our own inner experiences, the ability we have to be self reflective and aware of our own innate conscious reality. They confirm and are confirmed by the world.

It is possible to become enamoured of that inner world, to fall under its glamour too. The way in which our own truths are accepted within the world, the degree of respect they generate, and the degree to which they appear anomalous in the world but are able to find an integral place within it are all part of the intrinsic composting process which gives rise to healthy cultures and societies. We all participate in this.

Some, however will resist, buck against the process, against some of its products and creations, and get well and truly locked into their prevailing mind-set, becoming deeply entrenched in beliefs that they subsequently become convinced they can’t live without. These may well be the foot-soldiers of any NWO that might attempt to establish itself. All the options which they might consider their sacred cows have already been patented.

This is the root of a pernicious bifurcation, is very real, and very tangible. It is also a recipe not only for cognitive dissonance but for chronic polarisation, which is a dis-ease itself and, the degree to which such polarity is allowed to manifest outwardly is very much a part of the current battle. Our own inner explorations are an essential part of maintaining immunity to this disease.

It is an ongoing battle in these times.

You can see it in the most mundane sense in the war thats been raging on political fronts, in conflicts between PC police, censorship and freedom of speech, for example. Social media is one of its major battle fronts, but, at a much more sinister level, it is our minds and bodies which are really on the front line. Being sucked into the virtual vortex is a real danger.

There is undoubtedly a spiritual as well as a mental war going on here and eclipses on the new Gemini Sagittarius nodal axis will bring its tensions, points of conflict and disparity to the fore as we try to extricate ourselves from the worst aspects of the past and navigate towards the future. This too is a part of the clarification process that is underway, and even though it appears to be anathema to a raising of consciousness or inner upgrading, it is a necessarily truthful part of the process.

 

Many people are aware of the need to change the narrative, to find a new story so to speak. It is an impulse that been with us a long time.

The first wave of this phenomenon in the current era has been building quietly now for more than half a century, ever since the Uranus Pluto conjunction in Virgo its underlying effect has been undeniably present.

The second wave began to come in during the eighties, notably through Neptunian and Uranian influences and technologies activating Sagittarius and Capricorn, essentially grounding non-physical realities within our midst.

The third wave is now coming in to land, fuelled by the entire planetary matrix. We are on the cusp of something both anomalous to the present paradigm and deeply relevant to us as humans, and in the process are activating our electrical nature and energy bodies.

This is a part of the vision, the strange attractor pulling us forwards. It is a far cry from fear of a pandemic, which is being used to do little more than suppress and dumb us down, and attempts to blind us to our own greatness. We should pay heed. The north node’s new emphasis on intelligent perception, meaningful cohesion, connection and communication is where this must first be translated into ‘a story that has legs’.

In opening up the imagistic inner realms, the nodal axis emphasises the undervalued immaterial aspects of ourselves which themselves carry a high degree of immunity to the various forms of pandemic infection that afflict contemporary life. The artistic spirit knows this, and we are all imbued with imagination – just as the ancestors who inspired Jean-Michel Geneste’s words in Chauvet cave were. We are them, and they us.

The dreamers and those who are able to truly ground their connection with the ‘dreamtime’ will be seen to be a new and vital source of power, and empowerment. This is the power that holds the line with all who have come before and will come after us. Our creativity is the sap that flows through this lineage, these roots and feeds the branches through to their tips and the fruit that grows from them. Its a vision that knows its own freedom, carries its own seeds – its time is with us, and we can sense it growing in strength.

The inner qualities highlighted here are a reflection of our personal ability to direct our own energy through consciousness.

It is certain that we will emerge from these times different as a people. They present us with is a golden opportunity, to change our relationship with the past, and to reorient ourselves towards the future. Both past and future change when we do so, and this is the gift of working with the nodal axis.

In Gemini and Sagittarius consciousness and awareness become truly creative powers. They are ours to use in restoring good relations with life and, more importantly, in finally letting the voice of our souls sing. We are gifted with the most remarkable place in which to do so.

Be of good heart, and keep your eyes on the goal.

Blessed Be!

Whose Story Is This?

On 24th November 2006 Jupiter entered Sagittarius, conjunct the Sun. With Mars, as it is now, in Scorpio, Pluto was close on transiting the Galactic centre. Over the next year and 25 days Jupiter journeyed through its home sign, finally crossing the solstice cusp on 18th December 2007. What was set in motion through this time is still with us and now, twelve years on, Jupiter once more completes its term of home rulership within the mutable fire sign and prepares to enter Capricorn on December 2nd 2019.

So, what’s the story? What’s your story?

If during the 2006-8 period the everyday world was marked by one defining feature it was possibly ‘the culpability and deception that financial collapse exposed within the global banking and trading system’. How did that look? What was the punchline to its story?

If the finger was pointing in one direction it exposed the ugly truth, that “Greed rules”, that its lying dictators, priests and minions act with impunity, even when its hegemony implodes.

But, if we claimed to already know this, as we surely did, with these events its reality must surely have begun to hit home.

Have we learnt? Have we moved on? Does anything in this time tell us, reassure us that we have? With Jupiter again about to enter Capricorn we should be wary of the consequences of not answering, and not answering truthfully, more than the answers themselves.

Pluto finally entered Capricorn late in 2008 with Jupiter at that time in the degree now occupied by Saturn. If the enormity of the reality we faced then did not in fact fully come home to us, the exposure of it’s underlying superstructures has, if not transformed the financial system, certainly transformed our perceptions and awareness of it and its consequences. The reality of ‘our’ mythos is exposed.

Some might attribute such a role to the outer planetary triad, but, Jupiter rules our mythos, the narrative we collectively run through our systems, the meaning we both give and seek within the justifications we bring to buying into it, as well as in attempting to look beyond it.

When it comes to the 2007/8 “Crash” and its consequences, which began with the US sub-prime mortgage debacle late in 2006, this mythos is magnified and put into hard perspective; we know the nature of the world we live in, the slavery and servitude its plutocratic tyranny ensnares us in. There is no escaping our awareness of the truth within this narrative.

With Jupiter now cusping Capricorn this awareness and the question it still begs of us, “the response we have yet to bring to it”, is the reality that looms large in our current world. With the awareness we have gained, so long as the same hegemonic ‘system’ remains unchanged we know, and are reminded on a day to day basis, that we are living at odds with it and our awareness. We can no longer justify the mythos – our knowing, if not our acts, tells us so.

In a nutshell, this is to describe the dilemma that must be resolved during Jupiter’s coming transit of Capricorn. It is a transit that will culminate with the meeting of Saturn and Jupiter in the first degree of Aquarius on the December solstice in 2020.

It includes the most talked of transit and conjunction since Uranus and Pluto squared off between 2011 and 2017, the meeting of Pluto and Saturn in January 2020. This conjunction by itself marks this as a ‘crunch’ year, and there will be a mix of faster transiting planets, including Jupiter, along with the Sun adding to this intense primary power source as this conjunction resonates through the year. But, the writing has been on the wall for at least 12 years, in fact, for a very long time we have known that it must come to this.

When the Galactic cross was precision formed and completed by our central Sun on December solstice 2012 the impulse for evolutionary transformation brought ‘events and consciousness’ into sync in a way that initiated a spiral dynamics of exponential acceleration. The consequences of this are initially chaotic, but, will transition to another phase of order, the shape of which is, in significant part, in our hands – we have a window of time in which to determine this.

The knowledge of this synchronisation of inner and outer realities is millennia old, but, its stimulation in our times, by orb of 1˚, began in the 1940’s and was fully marked by the so called ‘end of hostilities’ at the close of WW2 – from here the healing of an ancient self destructive trauma that world wars, and atomic psychosis, had brought to insane pitch must now begin and that same orb marks the years up to 2074 as the closing phase of this 144 year period of transformation. This fractal of the great year has its resonances at different scales. At the personal level, we should be thinking ‘seven generations…..’

…..when Jupiter left Sagittarius in 2007 it was amidst an evolutionary seed conjunction with Pluto, Mercury and the Sun around the galactic centre that set the stage – we have just seen Jupiter and Venus meeting in the same degrees. Now is a time to expand our creative energies from the heart. This is a part of the healing we must not miss – why?

Where Uranus held the mid degrees of Pisces opposing Saturn in Virgo at that time in 2007, Neptune now sits and becomes outwardly active, having turned direct.

That Uranus Saturn opposition was magnified, exacerbated even, by Jupiter’s transit of Uranus on the Aries cusp, an astrological event coinciding with the Gulf of Mexico disaster, ultimately finding expression in March 2011 at Fukushima.

This too is a part of our current terrain. But, how are we to navigate it?

The shock of ‘collapse’ and its potential catastrophism has now become homogenised and dangerously familiar, if dulled into a vague semblance of reality, “actual” reality, one might say. And this in spite of the current state of the world and our perceived collective contribution to, participation in and provocation of its symptoms. So, whose narrative are we following here?

The evolution that the marriage of events and consciousness might have seeded then has become our prerogative now. The ‘new age’ maxim that we ‘create our own reality’ has, in this sense, its head on the block and, if we can, in or after the fact, make our own reality come to be, the rules of the game are now exposed – simply put, reality happens, whether by direct engagement or not. Our input remains, regardless, conscious or not. And, conscious or not, we face the consequences.

We are here to know, yes, but such knowing is useless without the ability to act upon it. What is stopping us? That is perhaps the big Jupiterian question at the time of its ingress into Capricorn.

If the Saturn Jupiter cycle bookends Jupiter’s ingress into Capricorn, it points up the fact that, if we have not learned how to do just this, meet knowing with action, it will almost certainly be being decided for us by then. By other humans, our circumstances, or some other ‘presence’ – who knows?

Jupiter’s reminder is that we too are myth makers – we weave and bind with what we have and know, and find meaning in the patterns we make, as we do.

Is the story we are living truly our own?

The choice is ours…..

In The Zone

The period between the Taurus full Moon on November 12th and the new Moon in Sagittarius on November 26th sees Mercury station direct, and three planets plus the Sun change signs. Mercury will clear the retrograde zone on December 8th, just three days before a Gemini full Moon, by which time the prevailing atmosphere will have changed considerably.

Mars entering Scorpio on the 19th augers an intensification of inner drives and focus – for longer term projects the sustained intensity indicated here is invaluable and prevails into the new year.

Although Mars energy is in stealth mode here it is powerful and effective and, by its covert nature, this suits in-depth work, study and a powerful focusing of intrinsic energies. The nature of this energy is also inherently personal and best suits solo activities.

In magical workings this can be a profoundly rewarding time, especially after Mercury goes into direct motion in the skies on November 21st.

Talismanic work keeps coming to mind as does the making of fetishes and symbolic workings with a long term intent; whether it be concretely or literally, with bind runes for example or ‘simply’ prayer and affirmations, this is about working with your chosen magical language in a way that will help your energy to be more deeply invested in your work, to stay on track and repeatedly find its mark over the coming year.


In apparent contrast to, but very much aiding and abetting this combustible and intense inner force, the conjunction between Venus and Jupiter and their transits of the Galactic Centre speak of an atmosphere of joy and magnanimity that reaches right into the heart of creation. They meet on the 24th November in the penultimate degree of Sagittarius, a degree that the Sabians associate with bringing a visibly high degree of accomplishment to simple everyday tasks.

But, don’t be deceived by the charm and etiquette of Venus and Jupiter, for all the socially sanctioned pride implied here, there is also a high degree of potency involved in this work as well and, as next year looks set to be the time when we really want to knuckle down and get stuck in to what we know to be ‘the most important work we are here’ for, Mars along with Venus and Jupiter are here seen to be helping us develop a more deep seated yet higher level of determination in preparation for that period, no matter the level at which we are working.

This is about integrity and impeccability, about work in the world and between-the-worlds that is seamless, undaunted and effective to the max. We will see this come into effect in the mundane world regardless, whether the result of magical workings or not, but as an opportunity to be capitalised upon it is peerless.

The interactions of Jupiter and Venus with the Galactic Centre, prior to their conjunction, also have a deeper level to them, potentially drawing the primal source of creative power into our work. Tapping into the primal levels of creativity is visionary work and will benefit that intense focus, and Mars generative fire here becomes the fire at the centre of a spiritual alchemy which will benefit us all. We can make this a focus too, if it is appropriate to our calling. And, as with all such processes, there is an intrinsic process of purification at work.

We will be tested through this time and these magical workings for weaknesses in our integrity, both moral, ethical, physical and emotional. When our work takes us into areas where our knowledge is ‘thin’ this can be especially risky now, as befits engaging with potent forces – this is not a time to ‘act as if’. Think of it as a time in which to perfect our craft, to fine tune our power of intent and practice purity of purpose, and likewise to identify those areas in which we know we could deepen our understanding and inner resource.

By the same token this is a profound time to make offerings, especially in gratitude for the road ahead and the means we are being given to navigate it. We can trust the knowing we have of why, where and to whom these are to be made, but, we need to make them as meaningful as possible. Here again a deeper knowledge of ‘prescriptions’ and ‘protocols’ is de rigour.


Conserving focus, use divination sparingly, only should the need arise, and to this end work to strengthen connections to allies and guides. Places of power and beings that are a strong source of inspiration are favoured now and will come into their own if worked with in this way – working with water sources, sacred springs and fast flowing subterranean water courses our well chosen prayers can be disseminated far and wide within ‘the fabric of things’.

When the Sun enters Sagittarius on the 23rd of November we might begin shifting attention back to the outer world. And we may be surprised by sudden insights and things falling into place as we do – Mars opposes Uranus shortly after the Sun’s ingress and between then and the new Moon on the 26th there is also potential for major distractions in the mundane world. This is a false flag territory! Use your ‘seeing’ effectively.



New Moon sees Venus enter Capricorn and this will bring us further down to earth. We won’t lose sight of the magic or the reason we have been so pre-occupied through this time but the shift into a more sober frame of mind begins to form with this lunation. It is not a downhill trend or somber atmosphere that is brewing here, however – the object of our ‘true’ work, the primary focus which will occupy us through the coming year, is beginning to materialise.

There is a beautiful process of inner and outer alignment at work in all this which has been developing by stages over the last few months.

 This now presents an opportunity to raise our game, to capitalise on adjustments to our focus that we have made and for getting ‘in the zone’. This will make perfect sense by the time the next Full Moon arrives in the twentieth degree of Gemini on the 11/12th of December.

The underlying tension of these times is coming to a head and there is a purposefulness to everything that occurs now. But, see this time as a period of adjustment, a preparation, that will serve us immeasurably, further down the road we are all travelling. Being ’In the zone’ is associated with being totally turned on, tuned in and performing at our peak.

To give the longer term period a context the celestial matrix indicates that the planets are aligning to create a break from the past which will be decisive, fuelling a fracturing from prevailing dominant modes of authority, this being commensurate with a deep shift ‘within’ which increases individual autonomy in line with the innate ability we all have to connect with the creative source. Jupiter enters Capricorn on December 2nd, grounding the core galactic connection just as Venus transits the Moon’s south node.

With both Saturn and Jupiter in Capricorn, along with Pluto, Venus and before the year is out, the Sun and Mercury, this is the final run up to the meeting of Saturn and Jupiter at zero degrees Aquarius on the December solstice 2020 where they will begin a new cycle of reality building, initiated in a new element for the first time in centuries, the like of which we have probably not seen for millennia, if at all.

Blessed Be!

A Mirror of Polished Stone

Full Moon 12th Nov 2019, 1:34pm UTC/GMT

The full Moon in Taurus carries a blessing of a rare nature that brings much needed balance into our midst. But, this is no ordinary corrective to prevailing conditions: imagine…..

‘a mirror of polished stone hewn by supernatural forces within the deeply rooted bedrock of an ancient cliff face’

….the Taurean energy delivers a subtly shifting reflection of ancient oceanic light emanating from the depths of Scorpio, quietly grounding its energies within the earth plane.

This is a profound reminder that death furnishes all life with life. It is a meditation on mortality, yet here the emphasis is not on the ‘impermanence of all things’, but on the eternal nature that resides within their essence; this is the foundation within which this Moon invites us to rest.

Both sides of this symbolism are reinforced by the Sabians which accompany the Moon and Sun; the Moon’s degree speaks of ‘an awareness of blessings being bestowed upon us by supernatural forces’, the Sun’s degree of ‘the sacred way being revealed to us by the divine feminine’. To enter that path is to receive the blessing.

The message is furthered through the fine tuning and nuances that smaller astral bodies and galactic energies are here bringing to each of the classical planets. They ask us the fundamental questions that enable us to enter into communion with our essence.

“Who are you, when all is stripped away?”

This reminder of how well developed our sense of self and self knowledge is comes directly through Saturn conjunct the centaur Amycus in the 17th degree of Capricorn.

“How capable are you of holding to your own truth when met with complete disbelief and denial?”

This asked of Jupiter conjunct with the asteroid Kassandra in the 26th degree of Sagittarius.

Pluto is conjunct the centuar Chariklo in the 22nd degree of Capricorn and asks if you are “capable of reconfiguring reality, finding growth through defeat”, Chariklo being a specialist in questioning what is real.

Uranus asks us if we are “willing to enter the void in order to find our higher self”.

The void, as source of all possibility, resonates with Uranus predilection for anomaly and invention. Within the darkness is infinite potential.

And Neptune’s oceanic realm is endarkened further through the Black Moon in the 16th degree of Pisces – their question is perhaps the most psychically charged of all – “what are the powers, concealed from common sight, that live within you in whose grace you are gifted with sight and craft beyond the norm?”

These are powers which we can only gain knowledge of by acknowledging their presence and entering into dynamic relationship with their energetics – the powers which dwell within the deep psyche are autonomous, belonging to the natural matrix, unavailable to complete integration, yet the interactive awareness we may bring to their presence is also a profound gift of incarnation.

Mercury has asked for a deeper look, to open our mind and use our inner faculties in seeking an answer. The gateway of Samhain has aided the inner communion with ancestry and the non-physical worlds.

Mercury’s cazimi transit of the Sun has invigorated the genetic coding we have carried forward through lifetimes, supporting a conscious intent to bring our ancestral DNA into commission.

As the Moon and Sun come into opposition across the Scorpio Taurus axis this impulse is disseminated throughout the matrix of nature. There is no need of rationality in this moment – it is within the grace that humans know as trust that the answers arise.

We are in the thrall of mystery yet, as Venus reminds us through conjunction with the Great Attractor, the unseen is a powerful shaper of life, necessary for the blessing of life to continue.

Venus having moved on from the great star Antares, whose energies balance Mars drives for action with a centring balm of peace, is on her way to conjunction with Jupiter at the Galactic Centre and developing a useful sextile with Mars as the next lunation opens. These are positive aspects we can look forward to now.

Here, at this full Moon, while Mars degree speaks through the Sabians of the power of Adept abilities to act through the unified power of Yin and Yang, Venus degree speaks through the Sabians of our own spiritual ancestry. She invites us to reflect on our own path through the knowledge of our own soul’s past which has come into our possession in this lifetime through a higher level of achievements.

Let your being rest in the lap of this full Moon, bath in moonlight and open yourself to the mystery of mortality from the spirit’s point of view.

There is much to be thankful for. Meditate in peace.

Blessed Be!

Ancestral DNA – Mercury Sun Cazimi

Mercury transits the Sun, crossing the face of the solar disc, on November 11th between 12.30pm and 6.30pm UTC/GMT – the fleet footed planet’s nodes are only minutes of arc apart and fall within the transit, the Mercury NN being crossed within orb between 3.29 and 3.46pm UTC and its SN being transited between 7.05 and 7.22pm UTC. Why does this matter?…..

……for magical, meditative and prayerful purposes these timings allow a window of opportunity to call upon intents and purposes that have been given to us personally, which tap us into the potential stored within our ancestral memory through their endorsements of our lives and to become conscious of which of these purposes and endorsements affect the activation of our personal DNA, allowing us to engage with them intentionally – a still mind will allow their message to emerge.

Stillness is important here and this transit is deeply suggestive of scrying and similar means of divination to be undertaken during its course – otherwise, and similarly, imagine your mind as a deep body of water whose surface is glassy smooth, ultra clear yet alive within its darkness – it is this aliveness from which the communications emerge; ripples to the surface being reflections of emotional energy can be peripheral to the meditation, a potential distraction and obscuring to the inner communications at work.

The full window for medicine work which the transit represents also presents a preparation for the full moon which follows on the 12th, more on which in a while…..but, following the new moon release of epigenetically stored memories within the Earth sphere, via resonant opposition with Uranus in Taurus on Oct. 28th, the Sun crossing the Scorpio midpoint coinciding with Ceres transit of the Galactic centre on Samhain, and the coming transits involving Venus, Jupiter, the GC, Mars and Uranus, the deep roots of matrilineal memory that crosses generations and connects ancient and future ancestry has been activated and is going to grow in volume and strength as the lunation travels towards completion. This is all intrinsic to the major unifying conjunctions in Capricorn after new year.

These are ‘interesting times’, with powerful medicines bringing balance and strong connectivity into the Earth realm – use this Mercury transit well.

Uranus In Taurus 2 – Nuts And Bolts

This post continues the exploration of Uranus transit of Taurus bringing the focus to ground level within the human and natural environments. Many arenas of change have been left out here in favor of those which are perceived to be predominant, so this is not an exhaustive analysis. It does however offer context and give flavor to the trends discussed last time, in relation to our decision making within the mundane world. This is also the environment concurrent with the more metaphysical aspects of this transit, so it is essential we go there before coming to the next level of speculation, as we will in the final part of Uranus in Taurus.

Uranus, at the time of writing, is in the midst of a brief recce into the fixed earth sign having recently stationed retrograde. Saturn is currently also retrograde in Capricorn, going direct on September 6th 2018. Uranus and Saturn’s present trine, which has held a close orb since May, will last through to November 2018.

The steady if gradual developments we have witnessed through this time give way to a period which increasingly demands attention and decisiveness. When in March 2019 Uranus enters Taurus for the long haul we see this dynamic sustained throughout the first year until the Saturn Uranus square comes more fully into play in 2020.

During the first year of Uranus transit of Taurus Saturn is busy, a hectic conjunction between Pluto Saturn Mercury and the Sun in Capricorn on January 12th 2020 introduces the first phase of a watershed zone. At that time Jupiter will also be conjunct the Moon’s south node in early Capricorn. As the year progresses, Jupiter will catch up with Pluto and after converging with Mars in the first degree of Aquarius Saturn will retrograde back to form a stellium with Pluto and Jupiter which will sustain through the rest of the year.

This heavyweight combination represents a struggle between opposing forces in which extremes begin to attempt cancelling each other out, a process which will ultimately result in them losing power and from this point will resolve themselves into a new phase of building – this image could also apply to the long term process we are entering.

The stellium closes on the December solstice 2020 with Jupiter and Saturn conjoining, again in the first degree of Aquarius, to begin a new cycle although the polarised standoff highlighted through the entirety of 2020 will continue, conditioning the beginning of the new Jupiter Saturn cycle. That cycle will be highly instructive in laying the ground, and infrastructure for the establishment of a post-political technocratic landscape – we will come to look at the latter in more detail in part 3.

This watershed moment reveals two things, the first being how much of a softening up process has been at work over a prolonged period of time, repeatedly oscillating between growth and forced containment, at times vigorous and intense, at others deceptively placid, but always occurring within recognizable parameters. We are living amidst circumstances which have increased our attention level but which have yet to trigger really major systemic change.

The second is that through this process long held blockages to deep memory and historical truths have been made malleable and porous – a reassessment of the past is underway, a quiet revolution in itself, however, when this initial period of Uranus transit comes to fruition in early 2020 it will not be an understatement to say that ‘the past looms large’. Global circumstances at this time will echo past events which have had universal effect so this Saturn Pluto Jupiter stellium and the time surrounding it will need much closer examination nearer the time.

From mid 2020 onwards when the square also comes into closer orb the choices being faced are not only limited increasingly by ‘circumstance and policy’ but are informed by a deepened and growing understanding of the past. We will find ourselves living in what appear to be very ‘conditioned’ circumstances. The latter will bring deceptions and false narratives to light which reveal how extensively human perception has been subverted and which demand a serious revision of the historical narrative.

At a more personal level feelings raised by major environmental events will carry a familiarity about them, an indication that connections are being made with deep memory. Whether this brings strong and clear recollection will depend on the memory and the individual who holds it; we will return to this experience in the third of these articles, but, there is a sense through these experiences that we are going through a ‘reality shift’, blurring the lines between the ‘real’ and the ‘unreal’.

The square, when it arrives however, tells us we have entered decision time.

This aspect will highlight more of the antagonistic dynamic between Uranus and Saturn – its not going to be a one-off either as the square will reform three times during the period through to the last quarter of 2023, never entirely leaving orb during those three years.

This being the waning square in the current Saturn Uranus cycle this will be a time in which issues first raised through the opposition (2009-11), previous waxing square (1998-2000) and the conjunction which began this cycle (1988) will be brought once more into focus, ultimately to be resolved.

The cycle began in February 1988 with Uranus and Saturn conjunct in alignment with the Galactic center, opposite Chiron and squaring the Moon’s nodes. Portents of what is now unfolding were appearing.

The collapse of the ecosphere was first registered, and even capitalised upon, as a ‘global warning’ within this period. The health of the planet had been on the scientific radar for decades, but, its impact was beginning to come through more clearly within public consciousness as the century came to closure. Our future and its relationship to the human imprint from the past came more into focus.

This was also the year in which the WWW was first talked of at CERN and the ‘Internet Worm’ made history as the first major computer virus; it was the year in which President Ronald Reagan visited the USSR, the year of ‘perestroika’ and ‘glasnost’, and the onset of the collapse of the Soviet Union; it was the year in which the first exo-planet beyond the solar system was detected and man-made global warming was declared a ‘reality’; the year in which the Piper Alpha North Sea oil platform was destroyed by explosions and fires to the loss of many lives.

‘Resolution point’ and the completion of the current Saturn Uranus cycle is reached in Gemini in June 2032, when the two planets meet once again exactly opposite their 1988 starting point. The fruits of decisions made during the coming waning square will ‘come home to roost’ at that time – this is a cycle that invariably ends in the sign opposite to the one it began in. It is the polarity which provides closure.

 

The Symptoms

During the first half of Uranus 7 year transit of Taurus the dynamic between the individual and the masses will change. Humans will have to reconfigure their choices to a much more individual level, in step with the times. There can be no guarantees about what this will look like, the exact effects it will have, but, based upon current trends, the evidence from Uranus short foray into Taurus, and the predominant features of the planetary matrix through this time, we can speculate with a high degree of probability.

At the most superficial level we could be forgiven for thinking this looks like starting off as a seven year ‘love it, use it or loose it’ scenario, but we will soon discover that these are ‘consequential’ decisions, choiceson steroids’.

At the very least we can expect to come face to face with the need to revise our material attachments – never a bad thing to undertake voluntarily, this however will be revision demanded of us more by external events and forces. Neither is this an extension of the political agenda manifest in the idea of ‘austerity’ – but, major political change is on the way.

Stepping up a notch, we will see a steady shift towards a more deeply pragmatic sense of how to live life, already a choice for many choosing to ‘opt out’ of the ‘mainstream’ western way of life. Within the seven years of Uranus transit his will increasingly become a reality experienced more through necessity than choice, the result of both human and natural events.

At the next level is an increasing erosion and destabilisation of cultural identity, especially within ‘western’ countries.

Attempts at radical liberalisation and counter-resurgent protectionist defence of national identities and fundamentalist ideologies which we have seen emerging in recent years will continue but will begin to shed their recognisable political clothing as the transit progresses, especially towards the later stages with Uranus approaching the Gemini cusp.

The political identities of the past are in fact heading for extinction.

Where previously within political thought and ideology we had seen a competitive dichotomy in practice, symbolically represented by the ‘left’ and ‘right’ branches of politics, a new interactive duality inherent to the political arena will be defined more by tensions between ideological determinism, which now veers more sharply towards realising the role played by ‘non-physical’ technologies such as the internet, and pragmatic realism, which is defined more by external conditions, both imposed and naturally occurring . The technocratic revolution begins to bear fruit at this point.

By the time Uranus arrives at the cusp of Gemini the understanding will be that ‘political relativism’ is itself an interim stage on the way to developing and embodying a more radically conceived form of human ‘management’.

The shadow of Agenda 21/30 begins to loom large here.

The movement here becomes a longer term process which will see the traditional western notion of ‘politics’ diminish, its basis ultimately giving way to purely ‘functionalist’ philosophy manifest through regulation and governance. Although this might suggest a movement towards bureaucracy, the incline is towards a structurally diverse modular distribution of ‘policy’ based governance in which centralised ‘government’ is ‘function’ rather than ‘policy’ based.

The basis and meaning of ‘policy’ itself will radically change, but, that’s a discussion we will have to come back to in part 3, partly as it focuses on the technological developments which are in process at time of writing.

The seeding part of this process, which we are presently within the first stages of, will feed into and accelerate the breakdown of cultural aesthetics and social mores, a process which will encourage their rebuilding based upon a revised foundation of values. The fulcrum point for initiation of this process is the Venus retrograde in May 2020, but, as a longer term global process this re-evaluation was initiated the last time Uranus was in Taurus in the nineteen thirties, a period of political opportunism, economic instability and propagandist manipulation which signalled the onset of technocratic foundation building, and which very much resembles this time in many ways.

One of the main differences between that time and this will be seen in the impact of ‘natural’ events upon infrastructure. But, the long term impetus here relates more to the influx of a template for living which aligns more fully with the Aquarian ideal. We should always remember that there are two sides to what that ideal might be.

 

Earth Movements

The impact of large scale natural events, the forerunners of which we are already witnessing, will escalate as the transit progresses. Many of these events will bring unnaturally destructive power to bear on human infrastructures. Some will be induced by human interventions, some of which which have accumulated over time, compounding disruption to natural cycles and interrupting the planet’s own self regulatory systems. Many among them however will be seen to have been caused through deliberate intent, employing frequency technologies like wifi, and weaponising climate systems and bio-energetics, for example.

An increasing proportion of the larger ‘natural’ events will however be driven by sources which are currently barely understood and rarely acknowledged, except perhaps within a fringe minority of engineers, physicists, scientists and cosmologists, a large majority of whom do not operate within the mainstream.

Where we see particularly stubborn Saturnian resistance to change, especially within ‘the orthodoxies’ of the human world, the issues surrounding need for change will become increasingly forceful, and the forms that change takes become more deterministic. In fact, change is not negotiable.

We will see highlighted the intrinsic inadequacy, instability and threat to human and environmental health, which many existing infrastructures present; this will apply especially to those connected with power generation, energy distribution and transport, but also with regard to health risks.

The need to make radical decisions about the future of both solid state fuels and ageing production facilities, such as nuclear power stations, will of necessity become part of a rigorous re-evaluation within the accompanying restructuring process. However, although ‘alternative’ solutions in energy and power production and distribution are already at hand, their general release will only accelerate through the second half of Uranus transit of Taurus, as it approaches Gemini ingress.

We are in a short space of time, barely a few years in fact, heading towards rapid reconfiguration of priorities. The good news is that, for all the disruption, it will pave the way for hitherto unrealisable transformation, the kind of change which will induce the embodiment of a more creative and expansive phase, initiated through the second half of the transit and beyond.

Experimental breakthroughs, for example, will mark the later phase of Uranus transit through Taurus and will open possibilities for a new physics to enter the mainstream. Consequently, new ways of thinking about natural resources, especially those related to energy, its production, how it is accessed and, more especially, how it is used will emerge. Here, it is the thinking which will facilitate the greatest change.

As Uranus traverses the third decan of Taurus and approaches the cusp of Gemini the same impetus will bring an overhaul of commerce and expansion of communication, the latter well beyond our current capabilities. Uranus in Gemini will see this impetus become more manifest as a reality and our understanding of ‘reality’ change with it. At first however, we must go through this process of dissembling and disorienting ‘restructuring’.

Coming back to this side of Uranus transit of Taurus, this ‘restructuring’ will undoubtedly be the driver for radical cultural revision, social and political re-organisation, both through an exacerbation of current issues, such as those surrounding migration and the control of borders, and through a deeper range of controls being set on distribution of resources and a re-ordering of economic infrastructure.

In fact, economic and financial arenas will see some of the most radical changes – one of the longer ongoing trends in global change we will be seeing as Uranus transits Taurus, Gemini and beyond is micro and macro level change brought to economic models, functions, infrastructure and understanding.

Future Economics

In this longer term outlook the flow of ‘capital’ and the form which capital takes in particular will undergo changes which will fundamentally restructure not only the current financial markets at a global level, but, extend change along more novel pathways which have already opened up. We are familiar in current times through e-commerce, non-physical currencies, and tech based credit, with the dematerialisation of finance and capital, but these too will be seen retrospectively to have been a phase shift within a larger process.

In its first stages the process will trigger growth within shadow and hidden markets, non-official which is to say ‘alternative’ currencies, a trend we already see happening. We will see a socially based diversification and resurgence in ‘group’ based and ‘private’ trading schemes which bypass national and globally controlled commerce and economies.

This of course is not a new idea, many such groups have existed in one form or another for centuries, including the exclusive clubs and milieu of the ultra-priviliged and so called ‘elite’, the most influential having functioned primarily as global mafia, but, the idea and its appropriation in this new context is tantamount to a revolutionary insurgence.

In the light of what is to come over the next few decades, the initial surge is however going to amount less to a revolutionary wave of change than a re-arranging of the furniture already existing on deck within these human realms. The more revolutionary import of these processes will begin to be more fully realized around Uranus opposition with Pluto, a generation hence.

The timescale on these ‘economic’ changes is not limited by Uranus transit, but all the above shifts, changes and transformations will inform the process. If fundamental political reform is foreseeable within the medium term, radical economic re-evaluation is a longer term issue. But, it will come, the first real signs taking shape as Uranus ends its run through Gemini, and the form it takes is going to be outside of any current model, thinking or understanding.

During the run up to Uranus opposition with Pluto in 2045 we are heading for a time in which traditional physical notions of currency will lose their predominant influence. In fact, our understanding of value itself will shift so radically that, looking back, we will be able to discern a distinct watershed within history and global civilisation.

Changes in the level of interaction and embedding within infrastructures which humans participate in will include natural as well as human made systems. We will talk more of human integration with natural systems in part three, but, this integrative process will enable the new economy and its modus operandi to emerge.

This technology will evolve rapidly and affect human life radically. The individual’s quota of intelligence and nous will become equivalent to currency, not only in terms of its ‘sociological’ value, but, in relation to the notion of what we now call ‘the market place’ itself.

This is not a new notion, in fact it is very much a part of a sociological hierarchy of value which already exists. It does however become an extension of technological advances which will render existing ‘class structures’ within the economic model redundant; here, individual intellectual property and mental real estate become black market commodities.

The infrastructure for this development is already in place and much of this has been facilitated through the all pervasive installation of surveillance, a global phenomenon which touches every area of life.

Looming behind this process is Ai. A benign threat already present to humans artificial intelligence is often the screen onto which human fears are projected in future scenarios. As an integral part of the technological developments which Uranus transit of Taurus and Gemini will accompany, Ai’s role will be predominantly centered on expanding and evolving the new infrastructure through which the new economy, and politic, will function.

The shift in human values we are seeing here means that the main decision which will be discussed through this time around Ai has more to do with technology in general, is more centered on how much of life humans want to retain authorship and participation in than in whether the latent threat of superior intelligence through technology can be risked.

In the meantime, while humanity is discovering new frontiers, this side of the border the most radical shifts at a planetary scale will be seen more within the realms of nature. Here technology makes its biggest impact. Conversely, the true potential for human development lies not in technology but in nature itself. It is those whose cultural nexus is Nature who will be the true radicals through these times. Their time will also come when Uranus opposes Pluto from Virgo.

Coda

The crucial nature of awareness being invoked in advance of this ‘decision time’ cannot be over emphasized; as the Earth herself will adequately demonstrate, humans need to get things back in perspective. Reconfiguring how we live and showing that we are capable of at the very least letting ‘respect’ lead, and of acting accordingly is essential.

Rather than letting blind ‘progress’ lead us, or those who would lead us do so from a blindly ‘progressive’ platform, without regard or respect for life, this is a conscious choice whose decision is very much in the nature of our collective journey into maturity. It seeks to find the integration of Uranus and Saturn, a core element of the transition which humanity needs to make to both escape the long term behavioral loop it has sunk into and to reach the next levels of maturity it is capable of.

No matter the choices, the dance itself is also one of development into personal maturity, the attainment of which can offer to the individual the gift of natural dignity.  In fact the greater process is dependent upon this development within the individual. It is also dependent on both political will, how this is enacted and re-eassessment of true values.

However, where Uranus is involved even though progression and growth can be achieved it involves the challenge of facing the unknown, an inevitably initiatic experience in which Uranus plays an evolutionary role, if met willingly. And there’s the rub – many spurn initiation, for manifold reasons and, even though our decisions may be in Uranus favor, we can never be certain of what that means or what it will bring. Being able to integrate ‘freedom from the known’, which is the initiatic experience, is a measure of such maturity as humans might rightfully aspire to.

Conversely, to respond negatively to Uranus can lead us into shadow lands within our own psyche, resistance to change bringing heavier burdens; this has been, historically, the predominant experience, mostly in the face of forces that seek to stifle and suppress the Uranian impulse – remember Prometheus?

We know what the Promethian gift can give us, but we are beholden in this time to remember the prerequisite respect of power that it also requires. Here, we must be careful to distinguish between ‘power’ and ‘authority’, especially when the latter is synonymous with ‘control’. We have almost exclusively seen use of that gift as the prerogative of the Saturnian, with its emphasis on control and the dictates of the status quo.

We must not forget that the choice cuts both ways and those who choose contrarily will seek different outcomes. Technology has become our antidote to lack of true creativity, in the Taurean sense, and the panacea for the cultural failings which result. It is a compensation for a species specific depression, but, despite the material development of technologies which allow us to ‘escape’ our own shortcomings, as well as extend the reach we have within the cosmos, the shadow cannot be escaped.

The most powerful antidote is within the soul of every individual, where true freedom of choice is found. It is into this realm that we will follow Uranus next through this time of change and exploration of the transit of Taurus.
