  • June Astrology Highlights – “Dancing with the Stars” By Janis Page

    Eeek!   As in ‘eeklips!’… as June holds the first two of three usually paired eclipses.  If that confuses you, that means you are paying attention and ready to shake your eyes loose and dance your way free of the next layer of the outgrown, or simply no longer appropriate for this next phase of quickening.    Did you enjoy your break before this?   Didn’t get one?  Oh.   Oh well, do remember that you have the right to negotiate with the powers that be, and ask for one.   Hey, sometimes it works!    Ok, back to the eclipses, which are about shaking up shedding whatever needs to change or go for the next phase of your evolution, as indicated by the sign and house the eclipse falls in, and whatever planets are hit in your chart.   Eclipses usually happen with a solar eclipse paired with a lunar eclipse when the Sun is in or very near the sign the Moon’s nodes are currently in – right now, the south node is in Gemini, and so the north node is in the opposing sign of Sagittarius, the thinking/big-picture wisdom polarity.    This month, we have a lunar eclipse on June 1st followed by a solar eclipse on June 15th – followed by another lunar eclipse on July 1st, which we will talk about next month.  Thus three, instead of the more common pair.  So June starts off hitting the ground running with this eclipse, with a little drag and confusion added to the mix just to keep it interesting while we continue to shift, shed the past and evolve.   The lunar eclipse on June 1st at 11 Gemini has the Sun and Moon in a tight stabilizing trine to old man Saturn, happy in Libra, sitting tightly on the local Denver ascendant.  The Moon in airy Gemini tends to think – and talk - her feelings rather than feel her feelings.  The recent stellium in Aries has mostly moved into down to earth, practical Taurus now, with Mars, Venus, Mercury, ‘dwarf planet’ Sedna, and uranian transneputnian (TNP) Admetos in the sign, adding a sensuous, stubborn edge that calls the quicksilver new Gemini Moon to slow down and go deeper.   Only Jupiter and Uranus, and, ok, dwarf planet Eris and Black Moon Lilith remain in Aries, and Jupiter only until June 4th, when the expansive giant enters Taurus to remain until July 2012.   We can be grateful for these slowing influences, because as we’ve discussed for quite a while now, the veils between dimensions are thinner, so the potential for deeper awareness and confirming synchronicity intensify.   This is heightened as this eclipse activates Uranus and potently forceful uranian transneptunian (TNP) Vulcanus on the 90 degree dial, as well as asteroids Bacchus (addiction, emotional denial or dishonesty, and – trees) and Ophelia (self-defeating emotional overreaction).    Be prepared for some potentially explosive reactions as more comes to light, and take a deeper view to take advantage of the opportunity for spiritual awakening and evolution. All this is lubricated by zippy Mercury flying into his own sign of agile, thinking Gemini just about 24 hours later on June 2, while watery, idealistic and often confusing Neptune turns retrograde on June 3rd at zero degrees of his own sign, Pisces, starting a slow trek that will take him back into Aquarius in early August, where he will remain until reentering Pisces next year to stay for over a decade.   Neptune moves so slowly that the elusive planet has been stationary all week, and continues to remain stationary for almost another week, holding an underlying hazy feeling.   Then, as mentioned above, Jupiter leaves Aries after zipping thru that fiery sign in five months to enter Taurus on June 4th, shifting the focus from initiation of desire and new potentiality into more concrete manifestation.   The following week Jupiter makes a 60 degree sextile of opportunity to Neptune on the 8th – take the opportunity to dream, to meditate, to envision your Soul purpose.   Then on the 9th, Venus enters agile Gemini and makes an activating square to Neptune, reminding us that beauty, love, and compassion are to be part of that spiritual vision.   Then in a cosmic changing of the guards, just as Neptune begins to slowly retrograde after being stationary for almost two weeks, Saturn stations to turn direct in Libra, adding a slowing and deepening stabilizing energy to these transits. So that is the dynamic shifting setup to the lunar eclipse on June 15th at 24 degrees of Sagittarius.    This long, slow eclipse is a powerful one because at over an hour and a half in duration, the effects will also be deeper and more long-lived.  But also, it’s conjunct the galactic center, and as such will resonate on a broad, universal level.   Lunar eclipses tend to resonate more on the personal, emotional level.    This one resonates and ripples out in a few widening and deepening circles and levels, as evidenced by its 90 degree dial activation.    The eclipse makes direct hits to Poseidon, TNP relating to spirituality, light, psychic imagery; to deep and spiritual Dark Moon Lilith; and to new Kuiper belt football-shaped dwarf planet Haumea, named after a Hawaiian goddess.   I don’t know enough about this new planetary being yet to say much, except I’m thrilled we’ve finally moved beyond Greek and Roman gods and goddesses to finally become more cross-cultural, with more instinctual cultures with far greater harmony to nature.   This eclipse beckons us into new, uncharted potentiality with some real juice to it.   Activated midpoints are also loaded with new beings and TNPs – Mars/Poseidon, Eris/Admetos, Vulcanus/Sedna, Juno/Hades, Cupido/Hades.   There are also the very personal asteroids of Bacchus again (addiction, emotional dishonesty, trees), and Eros (sexual energy, cardio and hormones) At the same time, the local ascendant for this lunar eclipse is just a degree from that of the solar eclipse on June 1st, and still has stabilizing and sometimes limiting Saturn perched on it.   If this eclipse is dominant and activated in your chart, be ready to drop what is indicated that no longer serves you and leap into unknown potentiality.   Eclipses can ‘burn’ things out of our lives dramatically and fast.   Sometimes what is burned out are obstacles and blockages.   Do note that while sometimes the impact is drastically obvious on the day of the eclipse, they can manifest early, or for months afterward when there are other transits that trigger the eclipse degree.       There are more movements of the cosmic chess board the following days with Mercury entering emotional Cancer on the 16th, indicting an ability to feel rather than think thoughts, then squaring dynamic Uranus on the 18th, great for intuition and awareness, but also the risk of accidents, so be careful on the road.  Then on the 19th, Mercury stands off in opposition to Pluto, with potential power struggles, secrets, mental obsessions, or, better, profound insights and deepened awareness.  Then on June 20th, Mars enters quick thinking and acting Gemini, and tends to be happy and well placed in that sign, as the last significant repositioning to ready the skies for the summer solstice on June 21st.   Whew!  Solstices are always important, as they are by definition direct solar activation of the Aries axis, and so impact the collective universal level as well as set the tone for the following three or six months.   The summer solstice, or Cancer ingress is the time to get centered, to express gratitude (ok, it’s always time for that!) and to assess where you are, what commitments you want to make, how you wish to move forward.  This summer solstice is notable for the Sun being mere minutes from TNP Hades, so we can expect much that has been hidden to be disclosed, much to disintegrate and fall away, and a call to core level authenticity.   On the collective level, more will come to light about leaders, who will be challenged if they are not in integrity, and more about the sick, the poor, and disenfranchised, the homeless.   There will be errors made.   We may see more focus on food safety and production, and more about the dangers of GMO crops.   There will be power struggles, and those who can rise above them in skillful awareness.    There is quite an intense cardinal grand square in this chart, with powerful Pluto in Capricorn opposing Mercury and TNP Kronos (leaders) in Cancer, squaring disruptive Uranus in Aries opposing Saturn and organized but potentially explosive TNP Zeus.   Here is where we see the power struggles, and some tendency to worry, but also to build new pathways and innovative solutions.  With bridge-making Chiron nearly on the Aries axis at the midpoint of Moon and Neptune, all in Pisces, there is great vision but also illusion possible.   Watch your dreams, meditate, maintain clarity of intent and focus on your spiritual evolution, and while it could be quite a ride, it can be powerful and great, indeed.    We continue to be flooded with light and illumination.  Willingly let go of that which falls away, and take heart.   Deepen in radiant joy, gratitude, compassion, patient acceptance.   As always, many blessings to all…           www.rubymala.com    Previous monthly forecasts on my blog at http://blog.rubymala.com/

    Abundance, Prosperity & The Law of Attraction
    NLP tools to create your abundance mindset
    by Jonathan Manske
    Are you trapped in scarcity thinking or do you enjoy abundance thinking?
    Life experience always shows us the answer to that question.
    Abundance and prosperity can never be achieved with scarcity thinking. Even if
    we are doing all the “right things”, we will not achieve our desired results when
    we have a scarcity mindset.
    Scarcity and abundance are both the result of habits, and habits can be changed.
    o Habits of how we think
    o Habits of what we think about
    o Habits of feeling
    o Habits of action
    o Habits of inaction
    o Habits of how we perceive ourselves
    This workshop provides you with simple to use tools that allow you to change your scarcity mindset into one of abundance and prosperity.  JonathanManske.com

    Three Evenings
    with Lee Mitchell
    The Crystal Triangle Activation Method is a practical way of preparing individuals to participate, and even affect, the Shift of planetary consciousness in 2012. This Process will activate the Lightbody for the Ascension into the Fifth Dimension.
    The Crystal Triangle Lightbody Activation Material, developed by Duane Henkle, is a direct experience designed to realign the physical body and surrounding energy field with the new frequencies. The body will respond to the initiation of this physiological process by mutating the very DNA itself. You may experience improved intuition, better energy, less stress, less fear and more focus on love.
    • This is an experiential group meeting with everyone participating in the activations.
    • The originator, Duane Henkle, recommends 6 activations for best results. 
    • You will receive 2 activations each session.
    From the “The Lightbody Activation Manual” by Duane Henkle and Diana Stone: What is a lightbody, anyway? It’s a matter-based physical body transformed into a Light-based physical-etheric body, vibrating at a vastly higher rate than before. 
    We humans have a physical body surrounded by a fifth-dimensional etheric Blueprint. The blueprint holds an axiatonal (light and sound) meridian system that has been cut off from the Oversoul, thus causing aging and ultimately death. Once reconnected, the human body is reprogrammed by the Oversoul into a new Body of Light. This triggers massive physical transmutation throughout the body.
    Comments from people experiencing the experience:
    “Kris and I noticed fairly significant changes when we first started doing the Triangle work. I noticed that I rarely got angry or irritated at the things that used to trigger me. Of course, my intuition has greatly improved and I do get messages, when I am in the Triangle energy and even when I am not.”
    Another says: Probably the biggest change is that I have less internal stress.It’s not that I don’t have challenges. I am different now in how I address them. I never become anxious, never waste time worrying about it…..free of fear and
    Focused on love.

    Emerging Experts ™ presents Creating and Communicating a Visionary Brand, a three-session workshop to transform your passion, your power, and your message
    Join branding/spiritual business expert Ellen Melko Moore and social media specialist Amber Irwin as we help you create a brand that speaks for itself and a social media structure that allows everyone to talk about you.
    Whether you’re just starting a new venture, or considering a renovation/revolution for an existing or established business, this uplifting yet extremely practical series will set you on fire with the knowledge and tools to burn brighter, stronger, and truer than you have ever dared before.
    You are about to Become Visionary.
    What Is a Visionary Brand?  By its purest definition, a visionary brand is a brand that inspires people to act.  It inspires devotion and communication in its audience, clients, or consumers.  Its customers speak and act and advertise for the brand, spreading the word because they love associating with its power, possibility, heart, or “sexiness.” In some way, large or small, those who participate feel transformed, and they want to share that transformation with others.
    If you are part of the “tribe” interacting with a visionary brand, you want to talk about it, to share it, to debate its merits or flaws with others who care about it. You take pleasure in introducing it to the uninitiated.
    A visionary brand can be big or small, profit or nonprofit, can be a large corporation or a single person.  Some famous examples of visionary brands that have changed our lives might be Facebook, Starbucks, Tom’s Shoes, Oprah Winfrey, Netflix, and The Susan G. Komen Foundation.
    How Does a Brand Become Visionary?  Big brands and big names can inspire us.  But it’s also important to look at the inspiring people and companies all around us.  If you think about it, you can probably identify several visionary brands in your own circle, your own neighborhood.  
    It might be a painting company who donates a free paint job to a neighbor facing foreclosure, a bakery who celebrates Wednesdays with free éclairs, or a friend who rallies a community to serve a returning injured veteran.
    It may be an artist whose paintings take our breath away, a computer store whose top priority truly is the customer, or a garage band who collaborates with a tattoo artist to clean up the local skate park.
    Whether large or small, traditional or totally unprecedented, commercial or compassionate, an emerging visionary brand compels us to look, to notice, to talk, and to act.  And most importantly, to spend our money!
    And you can bet your boots that with a good strategy of playfulness and perseverance, that brand won’t be a beginner for long.
    Build a Killer Brand and Give it a Voice.  So, a visionary brand inspires action, and that inspiration begins with you.
    Are you inspired by your own idea, your own business, your own way of showing up in the world? Are you so excited that you can’t stop talking about what you are doing, learning, selling, experiencing?
    Or is it perhaps time to open the doors of your mind and soul and let some fresh air down the corridor?
    Our three part workshop focuses on the three essential ingredients of the visionary brand: the Creators, the Participants, and the Collaborative Process (otherwise known as the brand, the customers, and the sales relationship!)
    In each session we will devote equal attention to BOTH the visionary spirit of our brands AND the powerful tools of technology that allow us to share that spirit in unprecedented ways.
    Ellen will lead us as we create, pitch, and examine the Inspirational Ingredients of all who play in the sandbox of our brand.   Amber will guide us through the exciting (but often intimidating) waters of Facebook, Twitter, Twello, and Hoot Suite.
    Between sessions, we will support and inspire each other in small groups using our new-found social media skills (gaining first-hand experience with innovative email, free conference calls, YouTube, and Blog Talk Radio!)
    Our Vision for You.  And our Promise.  No matter where you begin, whether as a first-time entrepreneur or a seasoned veteran, by the end of session 3 you will take home:
    *a recipe and road map for your own visionary brand, including new pathways for money to come to you
    *a support team who believes in your dream
    *a tribe that loves to talk about you
    *a working knowledge of the most important components of social media and a system for using them powerfully
    *a rejuvenated sense of your life’s purpose and a renewed enthusiasm for getting out of bed, even on Mondays
    You could pay thousands of dollars and spend hundreds of hours for this coaching and training.  Like many of your friends may be doing.  Just think how jealous they’re going to be when you say you did it in three months for $147! That’s okay, though.  Next time they’ll know where to go to Become Visionary.

  • May Astrology Highlights – “Dancing with the Stars”

    Happy May!    We can welcome a new month, after the excessive stellium of six planets in fast, aggressive and competitive Mars-ruled Aries at last month’s new Moon on April 3rd.   The Aries brigade was at least restrained a bit by a containing opposition from Saturn in Libra and Mercury retrograde until April 23rd, but that is still an overabundance of ‘ready, fire, aim!’ Aries.   May finally reins in most of that galloping stampede – eventually.   Our usually sweet Taurus new Moon in the early hours of May 3rd is pushed by Uranus conjunct Black Moon Lilith (BML), Venus conjunct Mercury, new ‘dwarf planet’ Eris conjunct Jupiter and Mars – all still in Aries.   Sheesh!   That last trio feels like cowboy outlaw lawlessness, or more likely, ego run amok crying ‘Me!  Mine!  Bigger!  More!’  And they are on the Aries axis.   Current and recent political posturing and tantrums by members of Congress come to mind...   Saturn and the organized but explosive uranian TNP Zeus still restrain the Aries collective by opposition from Libra.   The Sun and Moon shoot for more collective universal awareness and focus with a contact on the 90 degree dial to the Moon’s nodes on the Galactic Center.   This universal perspective is helpful, and needed – also on the new Moon dial is Chiron - the centaur’s higher expression assists to bridge from the personal to the transpersonal level, tho can also go all ‘mavericky’ on us, insisting on not being restrained by the rules.    When we consider Uranus, the Great Awakener and the master of breaking down old structures, we can welcome anything that helps us to not take things too personally.   Consider that many of us already are feeling immense stress and an uncertain edginess due to the solar flares as well as the effects of the magnetic field moving farther away from the Earth’s physical pole… Uranus is hanging in a pretty volatile and touchy neighborhood on the dial for this new Moon.   The powerful giant is with Black Moon Lilith – shadow issues; Psyche – extreme sensitivity and empathy; Ophelia – self-defeating emotional overreaction; Nostalgia – memories; Toro – muscle and bullying; Ornamenta – decoration, gifts given and received; Urania – differences in how people think, and astrology, which we hope will give us insight to be more conscious, and not fall into sudden emotional, defensive overreaction to someone pushing us around that triggers old memories and patterns.   Or something like that, anyway.         A major challenge in these times of ever-increasing acceleration and intensification is to not get hijacked or seduced into the speed.   We can slow ourselves down, even stand still in presence.   Despite everything seeming to the contrary, we often can take our time and not be pushed.   People who are not listening to their inner guidance to take a little time out for rest and integration are sometimes getting sick or getting into accidents that force them to take that time out.   Please listen to the urge to take a break, will you?   Don’t let the seeming urgency so exemplified by the Aries avalanche push you to a breaking point.     Uranus will be in Aries for a few years, Jupiter will be there until June.  The rest of the faster moving planets exit the sign to enter steady Taurus in May – Mars on the 11th, then both Mercury and Venus on the 15th, before the full Moon in Scorpio on May 17th.   The Moon is always intense during her monthly two and a half day passage through Scorpio, and especially so during the full Moon in Scorpio  - please try to avoid having surgery that day, thank you.       After the wild surging of the Aries energy at the new Moon, the willful (and “won’t-ful”) digging-in energies of the full Moon provide an extreme contrast.  The Taurus Sun opposing the Scorpio Moon is in a very tight conjunction to the uranian TNP Admetos.   Admetos makes Saturn look perky.   Admetos is so slow it looks like stagnation, but can have enormous energy of compression, which transforms.  Admetos relates to blockages and delays, raw materials, also, to specialization, meditation, and in moving beyond space and time, is potentially interdimensional and shamanic.   The extremely distant new ‘dwarf planet’ Sedna, named for the Inuit goddess, is very nearby, calling us to the depths of our psyches as well as the oceans.   If you don’t heed the invitation to the depths, the asteroid Eos on that tight Sun-Admetos brings a possibility of misdirected energy, which can be fully loaded as cornered by the Scorpio Moon, and dial hits to Saturn (again) and Mars (again), and Mars conjunct Venus and Mercury  is juicy, but possibly argumentative.   Many will be stubborn and unmovable, and some may take out their frustrations on safer ‘targets’ than those causing the bottled up frustrations and delays.    Instead, just chill, take some quiet time for reflection, and take advantage of the opportunity for insights, awareness and inner guidance.    The way continues to be cleared for new, deepened emergent spiritual consciousness, as we are flooded with light and illumination.  Take advantage of the stillpoint within the acceleration, and stay within your own focus, intent and desire, hopefully with activation of your talents and creativity in your chosen path that also helps others.   Be heart-centered, in joy, gratitude, compassion, acceptance, and radiant peace.   Breathe…. and Be.   Many blessings to all…           www.rubymala.com    Previous monthly forecasts on my blog at http://blog.rubymala.com/

  • April Astrology Highlights

    “Dancing with the Stars”
    By Janis Page   c2011
    Happy spring!   How lovely to have the hours of light now outnumber the hours of darkness, and warmer temperatures to allow more time outside in nature.    It’s a good thing, and a good idea to do just that – take a break, go outside, to the mountains or at least a park, and spend some decompression time just breathing and taking in the nurturing energies of nature and the Sun.   A little rest and recharge will help, because April continues the amplification of the energies that have been increasing in intensity for a while now.   Big time.  
    March brought not only the spring equinox, but also the ingress, or entry of Uranus into Aries – on the day of the Japan earthquake, now upgraded to 9.1, the resultant tsunami, and the start of the continuing worsening disaster at the nuclear power plant in Japan.   Wow!   Aries is ‘ready, fire, aim!’   As I write, eleven days later, Japan continues to have earthquakes of at least 6.0 every day, and the supermoon full Moon on the 19th isn’t calming things down.  
    March ends with Mercury beginning its first retrograde cycle for the year, calling for time to reassess, redefine our focus, finish what has been started, along with the frequent communication and technology snafus that Mercury Rx usually also brings.    We’ve been in a time of major solar flares, which further activate and amplify all the stress and confusion and technology challenges.  
    April begins day 1 calling us all fools, as now Mars enters his own fiery sign of Aries to further heat things up, and to quickly conjunct Uranus two days later.   That’s a lot like throwing gasoline on a fire…  so now we have Mars, Jupiter and Uranus all in Aries – that only happens about every 500 years!   Jupiter and Uranus together can be quite innovative and expansive, and indicate significant events in foreign relations, but then adding Mars to the mix increases the likelihood of aggression and violence, and possibly more religious conflicts.   The last time these three planets were in Aries was 1595.   There was war, some treaties, and the first performance of Shakespeare’s ‘Romeo and Juliet.’  Hmm!
    The chart for the new Moon on April 3rd is astonishing.    The Sun, Moon, and Jupiter are conjunct in Aries, in tight opposition to Saturn Rx conjunct the uranian transneptunian Zeus, which relates to fire, explosions, the military, organizations, inflammation, and squaring  the asteroid Siwa, which relates to Asia.   There is Japan.   On this same axis, on the 90 degree dial we also find Neptune (water, illusion, compassion), Transpluto (usually mute, but nearly always active when major crises happen), Hygeia (issues around health), and the asteroids Odysseus (travel), Industria (hard work), the asteroid Zeus-a (same as the TNP already involved), and Klotho (new beginnings).   We also consider what midpoints are activated by an axis, and the list is longer than I want to type out.   I will say it includes Mars/Vulcanus, Uranus/Vulcanus, each adding more explosive volatility, and Hades/Apollon, suggesting multiple incidents of breakdown, but also healing possibilities.  
    There’s more.   This day of the new Moon is the day that Mars makes his exact conjunction to Uranus (that is 5, half the traditional planets in Aries, if you are counting) and also Black Moon Lilith, relating to shadow issues, all on the universal Aries/cardinal axis.   The events this brings about will have global, collective impact.   If this huge casserole of intense planetary beings isn’t mindboggling enough, transformative Pluto, the planet of power and the abuse of it, falls at the midpoint of the two Aries clusters.    To add even more of a kick, Pluto is further intensified as the little powerhouse now digs in stationary, preparing to turn Rx on the 9th, and will remain Rx till the middle of September.  
    We are already seeing the amplification of the striving for personal freedom (Mars, Jupiter and Uranus in Aries) crashing against the control of established political powers (Saturn in Libra in opposition and the square to Pluto).   On the personal level, we must release old patterns and belief systems that are limiting our greater spiritual vision.   You may remember reading that here before, and more than once…  I know, it isn’t easy.  But it’s easier than trying to resist, which is sort of like trying to beat back a tidal wave with a fly swatter.
    Then the next day, after Jupiter entered Aries in January and then Uranus entered Aries in March, now on April 4th, giant, watery Neptune enters its own sign of Pisces, to be there till January, 2026!    With an orbit of about 160 years, Neptune was last in Pisces 1847-1861, when there was a spiritualism movement in America, driven by a desire to explore the unseen and unknown.   Neptune relates to spirituality, religion, the astral realms, addictions, illusion, glamour (including of the Alice Bailey variety), oceans, oil.   At its highest level, Neptune relates to universal compassion.   While Neptune in technology-based Uranus brought the era of relationships over the internet and dating sites, well, I don’t know that that will stop, but it will change somehow.    Beyond that, we may expect breakthroughs in spiritual healing, including thru music and imagery, a greater sense of compassion and increasing awareness of unity consciousness, but also possibly further increase in religious conflicts and fundamentalism, and issues around oil, as well as concern for the oceans and of water as a resource.  
    We’ve only gotten as far as April 4th!   On the 6th, the Sun conjuncts Jupiter, bringing one of the more expansive and upbeat days we’ve had for a while.   April 9th, Pluto turns Rx, and while at a standstill Mars makes an exact square to it on the 11th.   This is a good day to be careful, as tempers and rage may possibly abound, and with Mercury also conjunct Jupiter that day, some will be quite positive and optimistic, but others may go way over the top, knowing no limits and respecting no boundaries.    
    The full Moon on April 17th has the uranian transneptunian Apollon (multiples, commerce) tightly conjunct the Moon in social and diplomatic Libra squaring intense and focused Vulcanus.   Across the dial is an interesting cluster of asteroids, including Sphinx (questions), Lilith (triangulations, rivalries, rejections), and Eros (sexual energy, hormones and cardio issues)    Expect relationship issues to be up, and those on the edge to come to a head at this time.    Another cluster on the dial has Aries Mars and Mercury opposing Saturn conjunct Zeus, which can be explosive as people want to blast beyond imposed constraints.    Jupiter is at the midpoint of these two clusters, emboldening and encouraging many to extremes, some of which are needed and warranted, and others to be just reckless.    Pluto continues to be a player, holding powerful midpoints to Saturn/Uranus (um, that’s a potential earthquake indicator, also revolution), Uranus/Zeus (explosive), Mars/Black Moon Lilith (taking things very personally, projecting, and not seeing or owning one’s own part in it).  The dial also brings in Astraea, vision, witnessing, and incomplete resolution, lingering situations, and Orpehus, which relates to sorrow, loss, death, and music, especially music with longing and pathos.   
    April is an extremely intense month, with much coming to light for purification and transformation.  There is ample opportunity for major spiritual growth and awareness.    The way is being cleared (while sometime kicking and screaming in resistance) for the new emergent spiritual consciousness.   Not all will choose to continue the journey.    Those whose soul agreements are complete may choose to move on, and that’s ok.   Zen Buddhist teacher Cheri Huber wisely advises to pay attention to everything; don’t believe anything; and don’t take anything personally.   Take heart, be mindful, consider and fine-tune your priorities and intent, stay in joy, gratitude, compassion, acceptance, and creativity.   There is much to celebrate!      
  • Beautification of Self~A Nick Message

    Beautification of Self begins with the "inner self." Bringing oneself into a place of recognizing that one is worthy of receiving the best that one has to bring into their experience; this is key to ones happiness and joy. What is created within the mind and energetically put out is vibrationally drawn to one. You are such powerful beings, able to manifest exactly what you have in your lives, be it in contrast (negative) or in expansion (positive). There are many  that are going through the tsunami of relationships. Emotions are running high, those that do not resonate within your vibration will choose to leave and those that vibrate within your level will be attracted, coming into the manifestation process within your experiences. The energy grid that is surrounding the earth is intensifying, glowing brighter and stronger, as those on the earth are coming into a place of change and love after the major earth changes and shifts. Know that this is a process of expansion and healing...the re-calibration of life and energy...lives as one see in the physical do not end in the energetic. Work is continued from the other side of the veil, on a more powerful level, assisting those that remain on the earth-plane, to continue the work that is part of their requested experience until they come into a place of transition. Calling all light workers into awareness is essential at this time. Answer the phone! With love and light, know that we love you very much.~Nick 4/13/11
  • Spring Equinox

    ‘Special edition’ –
    “Dancing with the Stars”
    By Janis Page   c2011
    These are extraordinary times, and call for extraordinary measures – including writing a spring equinox  ‘special edition’ update!    First, a reminder that the planet of chaos and disruption, but also cosmic consciousness, Uranus entered fiery Aries last week on Friday the 11th – the day of the Japan earthquake, one of the worst five earthquakes in history, now upgraded to 9.1, the resultant tsunami, and the start of the continuing worsening disaster at the nuclear power plant in Japan.   Wow!  There is nothing subtle about that.  
    I’ve been studying the charts for a while now, reading what some of my astrologer colleagues are writing, and sit here Friday night before the full Moon tomorrow morning, and this window of time is extraordinary.  
    We are currently in a powerful seismic window until at least March 26, though I’d give it at least through the new Moon on April 3rd, where there is the possibility of more radical Earth shifts and extreme weather patterns.    Consider the Pacific rim “ring of fire,” indeed!    There have been a series of destructive earthquakes progressing around this Pacific rim recently, starting with the 8.8 quake in Chile on Feb. 27, 2010, and in the more immediate past, the 6.3 quake in Christchurch, New Zealand on Feb. 22, 2011, and now the Japanese 9.1 quake on March 11, 2011.   I can’t help but notice those master numbers in those last two dates…  and while there has been tragedy, people are showing up in compassion and camaraderie to help each other.   If the circular progression continues, North America may be next for a bit of Earth dancing, as she clears, discharges and rebalances energy in her rebirthing process.    Many are working to ease the energies, we’re ok.  
    We may see some activity by the time you read this…  This full Moon in the morning is a “supermoon”  when the Moon is at her perigee, or closest distance from the Earth.   This is the strongest, closest supermoon that we’ve had in about 18-20 years, and the closest we will have until 2016.   What I wrote in part at the start of the month:
    The full Moon at just under 29 degrees of Virgo falls on Saturday, March 19, at 11:11 am.  (more master numbers!)  The full Moon is conjunct the asteroids Atlantis, bringing a potential sense of ‘impending doom,’ water disasters, and issues of confidentiality and ethics; Terpsichore, about dance, grace and flexibility, body language; and Nemesis, relating to scapegoating, Achilles heel, seeking to place blame.   This complex mix of energies opposes the Sun at the end of Pisces, conjunct Black Moon Lilith, calling for working with the shadow – what do you not see within yourself, that you may repress and then project?  The Sun and BML are also conjunct Uranus, so a lot is going to blow open.    But even this isn’t all… the opposition makes an exact square to the nodes of the Moon, bringing in emotion (as if the full Moon isn’t enough for that) and impact on the collective level.   The south node of the past and karma is conjunct the uranian transneptunian Hades, which squares the full Moon axis to the exact minute.  Whew!   We are called to break down old structures and belief systems that no longer serve us, and at times we may feel like the ground is eroding away right under our feet.   Out in space there are black holes, quasars, and other space phenomena, including several ‘blazers,’ which emit electromagnetic impulses.   There is one at 28 Gemini, where Hades is sitting, called the Blazer Machine (no, it isn’t a sewing device)   The Moon was at this same degree conjunct the Blazer Machine during 9/11, the Asian tsunami, and the eruption of Krakatoa – hopefully we will not see an event of this destructive magnitude, but do note how powerful this full Moon is… 
    Then the next day, Sunday, March 20 is the spring equinox, when the Sun enters Aries and conjuncts Uranus at zero degrees, exactly on the universal/Aries axis.    Clustered with them on the 90 degree dial are Black Moon Lilith (shadow), Hades (breakdown at the end of cycles, purification or putrification, essential authenticity) and at the square, the Moon’s nodes.    For Denver, the ascendant is also on the Aries axis – for Washington, DC, the descendent is 1 degree Aries and the midheaven 1 Cancer, so all the angles are part of this major activation.   There is another cardinal cluster here as well – the uranian transneptunian Zeus, Saturn, and the Moon running from 13 to 17 degrees of Libra opposing Jupiter at 12 Aries and Mercury at 18 Aries, opposing watery Neptune across the dial, to add the possibility of water crises, some confusion, but also compassion and awareness.    Add powerful Pluto at the midpoint of the two cardinal clusters on the dial, and we can see great transformation, more revolution, including revolution in consciousness.    These planetary pictures can manifest in many layers, on many levels.  Take the high road to a rocket-boost evolution in consciousness!    Though at best, it’s not likely to be very comfortable.  
    While many consider the winter solstice/Capricorn ingress chart the universal chart for the following year, some consider the spring equinox/Aries ingress to be the significator chart for the year.    At the least, it will define the three months until the summer solstice.    I would say that we could expect massive change in our country over the next three months, if not over this weekend!    Things have been so intense for so long, at least we’ve been in training and know how to roll with it, right?  
    We don’t get a break then, either… the upcoming new Moon chart for April 3rd promises to be every bit as intense, volatile, magical and powerful, with a cardinal cluster of the Sun, Moon, Jupiter, Zeus and Saturn, and another cardinal cluster of now Mars conjunct Uranus and Black Moon Lilith, still with Pluto at the midpoint.    Wow!    And as we had Uranus enter Aries early this month, the day after the April new Moon, giant watery Neptune will enter its own sign of Pisces.   It feels as if the island we’ve been standing on is awakening, and we’re finding ourselves on the back of a giant whale starting to move…  or somethin’ like that!    Check back at the start of April for more on the Big Events next month.
    In the meantime, be aware, take heart, consider and refine your priorities, stay in joy, gratitude, trust, acceptance, and creativity, and have a very blessed full Moon and spring equinox.    Now the balance shifts, and for those of us in the northern hemisphere, the light surpasses the dark.   That is happening on other important levels, as well…  There is much to celebrate!

  • Winds of Change~A Nick Message

    There have been many changes occurring that have been very evident these past few weeks. Drastic external changes and others internally. These are the winds of change. It is the process of moving from the old into the new. Many of you, as biological beings, have been asking for these changes, whether it be conscious or subconscious. That in which is given energy is that which is created. Many biological beings are choosing to make their transitions at the time, many are young. They are the catalyst for change for those biological beings remaining on this earth plane, helping to bring them into awareness...an awareness for/of change. The process of bringing about something that is "new" is in truth the bringing into ones experience that which has already been known but is being remembered. The earth, your blessed planet, is going into a change of rememberance, of when it was in its purity, without the pollution, without the wars, without the negativity of lower vibrations. This process of drastic change, is in effect, changing the lives of biological beings on this planet; which in turn changes the vibration. This vibration begins at one point, such as a pebble that is dropped into a pond. The waves of change flows outwardly, changing and moving the energy of that which it comes into contact. Some waves are more powerful that others, making larger and faster changes, such as your situation in Japan. A new way of living, of life, for these biological beings will now come into their experience. It is the process of change in the highest degree. This wave of change will flow into the cosmos and bring changes on other planets and galaxies. All is as one...Remembering that your experience on this plane is also an experience for others on another. Many blessings and love.~Nick~3/17/11
