A whole lotta a shakin' going on!

 Note: see tabs at top for additional information and subjects including the new 'Personal Peeks'

Today the Sun shines bright in Leo with a positive link to Uranus in Aries. There is so much potential here for a new vision of self (Leo)  to immerge. Uranus brings energetic lightning strikes, so be prepared for sudden insights into who you are and why you ARE special. (as is everyone on this planet)

Also this weekend, the Moon in Libra sets up a Grand Cross again including Uranus Pluto squaring Moon and opposing both Jupiter and Mars.

So what does that mean exactly?

It means that on one hand there is incredible tension and a high possibility of stand-offs, disagreements and confrontations,  leading to fights  or even violence,  and at the same  the tension can lead to sudden insights and a deeper grasp of whatever (or whoever)  it is you are grappling with.

Everything right now seems to be stirring the pot. Mercury (thinking, communicating) square Saturn right makes it too easy to see things in a negative light. Beware of those self defeating thoughts, of seeing the cup half empty. Actually, highly creative energy can emerge out of this chaos, which we can use to our advantage.

 The Grand Trine in Water continues to bring fluidity, ease and grace to difficult situations, with a strong emphasis on emotional processing.  Together these  aspects  create a KITE configuration in the sky,  symbolizing the powerful, transformative and very dynamic forces of change.

Much can be accomplished now if you know how to catch the wind.  Don't grip too tight nor too loosely.  Find the middle way.

This weekend the astrology  is like an exaggerated version of the overall forces working on us at the dawn of a new era. There are so many predictions about this time. Some say it will herald a period of heaven on earth, others say everything is about to fall apart and be destroyed (or a combination of the two)  The key is we are at a key juncture in the history of planet earth and those of us who chose to be here at this time came to be a part of the show.

I have been reading Ken Carey's 'The Return of the Birds Tribes, which says that the original beings (the Bird Tribes) have been signalling a time of upheaval and change for some time now, saying that it will get more intense after 2008 when Pluto Squares Saturn and  the monetary system collapses.. That system has not recovered... with more to come as China enters the global crisis) and while some of us seem to be ok, many have suffered greatly, losing jobs and houses and so much of what they have built up over a life time.

 Its not all about doom and gloom... just a  a break down of mistaken identity  (that we are material only) which will benefit us all eventually... (hopefully) through a return to our original nature.

“We inhabit a world far richer and more complex, far more potent and beautiful, than the one superimposed by the interpretations of a species who’s consciousness has yet to catch up with it’s capability.”     Ken Carey 

In other words, if we have been sleep walking through life, now is the time to wake up and smell the coffee!

The purpose of this crash and burn type energy (Uranus/Pluto) is to purge away the underbrush so new growth can occur. This is not easy stuff and  while Mercury squares Saturn over the next few days, we can easily get stuck in mental resistance and try to swim against the flow.

The I Ching advised me today:  'do not waste your time and energy on mistaken resistance'

Perhaps the best way to get through it all is to remember that nothing is what it seems.  That door suddenly closing in your face really could be the signal for a new window to open. Robert Wilkinson over at Aquarius Papers (side bar) coined the term  'The Grand Irrationality'!

If you have a meditation practice or a creative outlet, this is a good time to use it to move with, not against the flow. Dance, sing, find your inner peace and extend it to those around you. We all need peace now more than ever.

If you do feel uptight or aggravated or overwhelmed by someone or something (merely a reflection of yourself) take full responsibility (Saturn in Scorpio) for your own feelings,

And remember, Leo rules the heart.... which always seeks peace even, while as our monkey-mind looks for conflict.  Let many things pass.

Visualize this glowing heart residing inside of you.  Feels its warmth, bask in its glow.

And remember, no one gets out of here alive!

We are all in this together.

Message from Hopi Elders

There is a river flowing now very fast.
It is so great and swift that there are those who will be afraid.
They will try to hold on to the shore.
They will feel they are being torn apart and will suffer greatly.
Know the river has its destination.
The elders say we must let go of the shore, push off into the middle of the river, keep our eyes open, and our heads above the water.
See who is in there with you and celebrate.
At this time in history, we are to take nothing personally. Least of all, ourselves.
For the moment that we do, our spiritual growth and journey comes to a halt. The time of the lone wolf is over.
Gather yourselves!
Banish the word struggle from your attitude and your vocabulary.
All that we do now must be done in a sacred manner and in celebration.
We are the ones we've been waiting for.

Oraibi, ArizonaHopi Nation
