The Energies and Astrology of May 2012

The outer world continues to simmer as our inner resentments, balance of power issues, fear, confusion and clarity boil to the surface inside of us. “Boil, purify, release, repeat” have seemed like April’s energies of the inner day. On the outside, from what I can tell, a number of big, landmark lawsuits have recently been filed regarding international money laundering, BP Oil “Spill” coverups, and various frauds committed at the highest levels of government. Time will tell how many of these lawsuits result in tangible changes, but the fact that so many have begun seems to indicate that things on the outside have nearly arrived at a rolling boil. We’ve also got “The Plan” described by Drake percolating in the background, along with highly militarized goings on in Chicago and Denver in late May. If those mass arrests of corrupt politicians, bankers and UN cronies start happening in May, it will be an interesting month, indeed!

Thanks to Lucas for the following Jennifer Hoffman post. For those people even more interested in the Astrology, I’ve got a video posted at the end, too.

The Energies of May
Jennifer Hoffman

If what is going to happen in May were happening at any other time during our evolving ascension path, I would say “Fasten your seatbelts because it’s going to be a bumpy ride.” Instead, I’m going to say that in May we are going to finally get some results from the work we have been doing since January 2012 and understand the pieces of a puzzle we have been working on for the last ten years or more. April was a month for endings and release. As I look at May I keep hearing the word ‘Start’, so it’s a month to get started. We may not even know what we’re starting, we just need to be willing to begin. With everything that happens this month, ask yourself these questions:

1. What am I learning from this situation?

2. Where is the healing for me?

3. What new beginnings are being created now?

Venus goes retrograde this month and in my experience, this brings about a value review. What we want and ask for is a reflection of our value and if you have been denying yourself something, pretending that you and your life are fine even if you don’t think that’s true, or not being clear on what you want in your life, this is going to bring light to that situation. The resolution lies in being honest with yourself, working on your value system, acknowledging yourself and having the courage to know you deserve the best, brightest, most wonderful outcome in every situation.

We also have a solar eclipse this month, which is the first of the 2012 eclipses and its degree and sign make it about karma. So expect to see an end to karmic cycles, become more aware of karmic partners and also have situations where you know that a relationship will end because the karma is over. While we may think that ending karma is a good thing (and it is), the outcome isn’t always easy because there is a powerful choice – move on together at a new, karma free vibration or separate forever. You may experience some separations this month, so thank the person for being part of your learning and healing and accept their choices, which is part of your own learning.

Expect more and bigger energy downloads too, probably extensive solar flare activity around mid-month, lots of emotional highs and lows that always accompany clearing and healing and some strong realizations that it’s time to release any limitations from the past. These are not easy experiences but we’re at a point in our evolution where we no longer have the luxury of hanging onto things that do not serve us. If we do, we’re not stepping into our power and there are consequences to that. It’s time for us to be willing to live in our mastery and to do that we need to shed our small thinking, poor self image, feelings of unworthiness and hoping that the world and the people in it will change for us. We are the change the world has been waiting for and with May’s energies our eyes will begin to open to the truth of our power and how much fun our life journey can be.

Have a wonderful month!

Also, for those who have more time or desire a more in-depth astrological look at May 2012, here’s a Carl Boudreau video I originally found on Shift Frequency. As Gillian describes it: “An amazing month. Tons of mutable energy, several six-pointed stars – including two different kinds, a five pointed star and a solar eclipse. A huge, overwhelming turning point of a month. Do not expect clarity. But you can expect a lot of help. As weird and wild and crazy as the vibes are, May is loaded with positive synchronicity.” The 39 minutes reveals all sorts of unusual layers in what looks to be a highly charged month on many levels:

Teach a Man to Fish

“Give a man a fish; you have fed him for today. Teach a man to fish; and you have fed him for a lifetime.” —Author unknown

No, I don’t eat fish, and yes, this analogy applies to women and children as well as men. I mention it today because so many people have lately requested I “just heal them” of whatever physical, mental, emotional or spiritual pains trouble them. I keep having to say, “No, I will not do the work for you, but I will teach you how to heal yourself. The energies of this time do not support a complete outsourcing of self-healing or any other responsibility. Yes, in most cases, I can help, but that comes through educating people about how their own energy system, karma, and self-talk work so that they know how to shift themselves into the positive feelings they’d prefer.”

Some people appreciate this, while others feel angry that I’m withholding what I “could” give them. The truth is that I love and honor them enough to offer much more than just a quick fix. The challenges of our times (both individual and collective) all stem from people outsourcing their own responsibility, which ultimately results in feeling “stuck” or “trapped” by circumstances “outside” their control.

When we abdicate personal responsibility, we also give away our freedom and power. In order to reclaim freedom and power, we must accept the responsibility that goes along with them. Yes, we can ask for help, but we should be wary of those who offer or claim to do everything for us, because real healing and empowerment come from within. Giving responsibility for our own well-being to another person, corporation, doctor, government, religion, or the economy makes us vulnerable to their whims, flaws, limitations and control. How can we know they truly have our best interests in mind? What choices do they leave us for opting out if we don’t like this feeling of dependence? What if we learn, mid-stream, that they not only can’t live up to their promises to save us, but never intended to do so in the first place?

Suddenly, the free ride doesn’t seem so free. Whatever its form, true healing comes with a price. In most cases, that price means throwing off the illusions that got us sick, ill, in debt or trapped. Some of these illusions run deep, and we may not want to let them go; however, we will only heal to the degree we manage to surrender the illusions. We can’t fake this casting off process to our deepest selves. If we haven’t finished, then the same issue(s) will continue to appear until we clear away the root distortions and lies. I see these patterns in clients and myself regarding past life issues, limiting beliefs and the blame game. Understanding our process makes letting go much easier. It might seem to take longer to learn how and why we engage in certain patterns, but ultimately, consciousness is more efficient than playing whack-a-mole with the next symptom, drama or disappointment.

Solutions from outside ourselves may ease pain for a moment, but they won’t help when the next challenge appears. And rest assured, in 2012, challenges will continue to appear! Johann Wolfgang von Goethe said, “None are more hopelessly enslaved than those who falsely believe they are free.” As the veils drop, people will begin to see myriad ways in which the current paradigm functions as a dictatorship. Life is upside down, inside out and backwards — and has been for a long, long time. Recognizing the inversions takes courage:

“MUCH madness is divinest sense
To a discerning eye;
Much sense the starkest madness.
’T is the majority
In this, as all, prevails.
Assent, and you are sane;
Demur,—you ’re straightway dangerous,
And handled with a chain.” ~Emily Dickinson

Healing such inversions requires courage, an understanding of how things become inverted, and acceptance of the personal responsibility to right those things within our own perspective, attitudes and vibration. At best, surface action and outsourced healing act as band-aids, but they won’t correct the root problem. At worst, they can amplify the root problem of giving away power and control to someone or something else. The famous slave-turned-Underground-Railroad-Guide Harriet Tubman said, “I grew up like a neglected weed – ignorant of liberty, having no experience of it.” “I freed a thousand slaves. I could have freed a thousand more if only they knew they were slaves.” In a society that feeds external dependence and spiritual disconnection, most people remain ignorant of liberty. We get to know liberty by cultivating an intimate relationship with it. We liberate ourselves each time we remember we change our outer world by changing ourselves within.

Healing and freedom go together. That’s why Harriet Tubman could say, “I never ran my train off track and I never lost a passenger.” The sooner we realize that our natural state is one of flow, Grace, health, wholeness, freedom and total alignment, the faster we can readjust whenever something begins to pull us off course. Faster adjustments mean less time in pain, resistance and poverty. When we learn to conduct ourselves, we stop running off track. We feel balanced, free, healed and whole.

Will I heal you? No. It is not my responsibility to heal you, but I love teaching people how they can heal themselves. I love helping people to recognize their own systemic patterns so that shifting one or two areas results in quantum leaping all areas of life affected by those patterns. Sometimes past life awareness heals root causes of distortions; sometimes clearing parasites strengthens the core sense of self; sometimes tough love helps people realize how powerful, magical and connected they already are. Whatever comes through me in sessions, I am not the one doing the healing. “You can lead a horse to water, but you cannot make him drink.” Source energy flows all around and through us, but it cannot force us to embrace that energy. Learning to recognize and correct our own resistance ensures that we can connect to infinite healing, love and freedom whenever we desire. We gain true security by realizing how and why we manage the flow.

Even if I could use my faery magick wand to bless and presto heal everyone I know, the energy of these times runs against such action. From Egypt to Madison to Occupy to localization to grassroots freedom movements, today’s healing energy requires participation in order to work. David Icke describes “Problem-Reaction-Solution” as the means by which the 1% control the 99%. Collectively, the world has begun reacting to problems. Will we scream for the quickest “solutions” offered? Or do we accept responsibility for the world we wish to co-create? Will we become the change we wish to see in the world, or sit back and demand someone else swoop in to save us from ourselves?

Patrick Henry so famously said:

“Mr. President, it is natural to man to indulge in the illusions of hope. We are apt to shut our eyes against a painful truth, and listen to the song of that siren till she transforms us into beasts. Is this the part of wise men, engaged in a great and arduous struggle for liberty? Are we disposed to be of the number of those who, having eyes, see not, and, having ears, hear not, the things which so nearly concern their temporal salvation? For my part, whatever anguish of spirit it may cost, I am willing to know the whole truth; to know the worst, and to provide for it.

“Is security so dear, or wealth so sweet, as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery? Forbid it, Almighty God! I know not what course others may take; but as for me, give me liberty or give me death!”

The energy of 2012 supports the passion of Patrick Henry. In a world of so many environmental, economic, personal, and collective ills, we must choose. We can relearn responsibility for managing our own energy, health, finances and reality creation, or we can accept a default reality that may very well extinguish the human race. Each personal healing affects the collective. Each step towards personal sovereignty and well-being empowers the collective. The whole is greater than the sum of its parts, but that does not negate the importance of individual parts. I leave you with words of The Elders Oraibi of the Arizona Hopi Nation:

“You have been telling the people that this is the Eleventh Hour.

“Now you must go back and tell the people that this is The Hour.

“And there are things to be considered:

Where are you living?

What are you doing?

What are your relationships?

Are you in right relation?

Where is your water?

Know your garden.

It is time to speak your Truth.

Create your community. Be good to each other. And do not look outside yourself for the leader.

“This could be a good time!

“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 they 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.”

Aluna Joy — Earth Grid Update

Thank you, Gillian, for pointing me to the following post by Aluna Joy. She really sums up the energies and ongoing Ascension Symptoms! A few things in particular jumped out at me:

“Our blood has iron in it, and iron is magnetic. Because of this fact, whatever happens on the Earth and its magnetic field, as well as the Sun’s magnetic field, we will be equally affected by. WE are ONE with the Earth, the sky and all life.”

“Don’t judge your process or the processes others are going through. Judgments and spiritual arrogance have no place in these times. All are a perfect mirror of God . . . including YOU. Remember . . . what you resist, you can never be free from, so allow, surrender and flow with the process. AGAIN … what you resist, you can never be free from. Allow your story to unfold.”

“The Star Elders really do love drama, and so does Archangel Michael; but they never go in to sympathetic resonance with the drama. For them it is just like watching a really good movie. They don’t judge anything and just accept the process. If we can approach this year as they do, it will make our lives a lot easier.”

I have been receiving these same messages in different words and analogies, and I, too, love a good story. Let’s give this episode a super happy ending! Thanks to Aluna Joy for tuning in. 🙂

Aluna Joy | April 20 2012

The Star Elders ~ Since the beginning of 2012, the energies have gone from feeling stuck, to feeling like we are in an out-of-control spaceship. This pace is literally taking our breath away. Yet we when we tune in deeply to our hearts, we are excited and feel like we are finally about to arrive. There is an excitement in the air that we have been missing for some time, and it feels good.

The Earth is shifting; in fact, it is getting an entire new grid system. The tectonic plates are wobbling magnetically as well. So finding and staying in our centers is becoming more difficult. Some symptoms that are popping up for people that are extra sensitive to the Earth’s energies might be mild nausea, like morning sickness, a slight dull headache that won’t go away, and a sore spot in the heart chakra area. These are temporary situations.

You are building a new body as well. Scientists know that our bodies replace every single cell every seven years. What we are experiencing NOW is an accelerated rate of this cellular regeneration of our physical and light bodies. It is going to be a whole new way to BE. It is going to feel a little strange for some time as this process completes, and we don’t expect this intensity to lighten up any time soon. A lot will be coming up; old stuff and more recent regurgitations.

Don’t judge your process or the processes others are going through. Judgments and spiritual arrogance have no place in these times. All are a perfect mirror of God . . . including YOU. Remember . . . what you resist, you can never be free from, so allow, surrender and flow with the process. AGAIN … what you resist, you can never be free from. Allow your story to unfold. Remember that where you have been, and what you have experienced, good or bad, has placed you where you are today. Just a quick look back will remind you how much you have grown. Don’t you see how much you have already evolved! Don’t forget this.

We are finding that we are becoming increasingly unable to cope with the illusions of this world; like injustices, dishonesties, integrity issues, dramas in family and other relationships, and the 3D world not working as expected. All this is feeling like an endless retrograde situation to us. Again this is a temporary situation. We are feeling these things more prominently now, because we are already IN the new world where these illusions do not exist. Our DNA is learning to balance and reorganize this contradiction of frequencies. The only thing in our way now is our own mind.

The intense energy might want to make us just crawl into a cave and wait it out. But we don’t do this. We stand firm on the Earth each day, breathe in and out, and we try our best to stay in our center wherever that might be in any given moment. Everything around us is shifting and changing at a ridiculous rate of speed. If we try to hide out, or hunker down, it will not work. We must stay involved. We must participate in this grand unfolding of a new earth, humanities awakening and the unification of the collective consciousness. This is what you came here for. You signed up for this.

The Earth is getting a new grid system and we are renovating ourselves to be in alignment with this new grid system. This will come with a new orientation point, with a new heart center, and a new body. Let’s just say that we have a lot on our plates right now.

Also, a magnetic pole shift might come sooner than first thought. Magnetic pole shifts are not as far-fetched as one might think. Geologists know the Earth and the Sun shifts magnetically every so often. This will not create world wide physical earth changes.

Some experts think this magnetic pole shift will happen as early as this May… here are some links if you are inclined to read more about this.
*** “Japanese HINODE team says in May 2012 the suns north pole will reach a reading of zero and will form into MULTIPLE positive poles … and to top it off, this is happening a year ahead of the expected nominal time.” http://sincedutch.wordpress.com/2012/04/22/4212012-solar-poles-to-flip-next-month-1yr-early-will-become-quadri-polar/
*** National Astronomical Observatory of Japan … “The estimated completion of the reversal of the north polar region will take place in 1 months or so, (MAY 2012) about one year earlier than the nominal expected reversal time.” http://hinode.nao.ac.jp/news/120419PressRelease/index_e.shtml
*** The NOAA National Geophysical Data Center ” . . . the pole shift has apparently sped up substantially.” http://modernsurvivalblog.com/pole-shift-2/alarming-noaa-data-rapid-pole-shift/
*** “Magnetic north shifting by 40 miles a year, might signal pole reversal.” http://www.mnn.com/earth-matters/climate-weather/stories/magnetic-north-shifting-by-40-miles-a-year-might-signal-pole-r

Our body is evolving in every sense of the word; quicker than any other time in history. Our blood has iron in it, and iron is magnetic. Because of this fact, whatever happens on the Earth and its magnetic field, as well as the Sun’s magnetic field, we will be equally affected by. WE are ONE with the Earth, the sky and all life.

An interesting fact is that we have already ascended to a higher frequency. The only issue is that our mind (our memory and our self-image) has not come to grips with this fact. The iron in our body (in our blood) holds memory and history, so as the Earth’s magnetic field drops to zero, our memory is cleared and rebooted and raised up to a new frequency. Eventually then our mind will catch up with what has already taken place in the higher realms.

This is a divine synchronization of all life on Earth with its attached collective consciousness. Some people will need to accelerate their spiritual and physical process by being very rigid with their routines. Others will need to slow down their process, by meditating less, eating heavier food and … well… what looks like goofing off 🙂 We must do what feels right in each moment without worry about what others will think about you. And we must not judge others for living their lives differently than ours. Did you hear that? This is important. Again . . . Judgment and spiritual arrogance has no place in these times. There are reasons why we are living the way we are living. The way we live our life now might be very different than from a couple of years ago. How we live our lives next week might be polar opposite to today. Humanity and all life is synchronizing with the whole, the ONE. Why? . . . because we are going through this dimensional gate together. Everybody needs to be at the same frequency, on the same bandwidth, on the same page, etc…

There is nothing more that we need to learn. The searching is over. We have everything inside us that we need, right now. But we already know this. Now it is time to believe it. We will receive necessary wisdom and appropriate alchemy when, and only when, our frequency is ready for the next step in this ascension process. This is a failsafe program to keep us safe from burning up in the ascension light. This is a step by step process. We have learned in the past that if we ascend too soon, or are out of sync with an ascending age, we fail . . . because we are not ready for the energy. We learned this the hard way in Egypt and Atlantis. Everything needs to be synchronized on the same page and on the same bandwidth. From our vantage point, all is going very well.

Lastly we are asking you to not go into sympathetic resonance with anyone going through hard challenges. Feeling sympathy will only bring your energy down, and make their journey harder. Remember . . . there is nothing to fix and nothing to heal. Each has chosen their path. We are harmonizing the collective field. Trust the process. Remember that what everyone is going through, is the process of bringing us all to that same page, so we can enter the new world that is awaiting us . . . together.

PS … The Star Elders really do love drama, and so does Archangel Michael; but they never go in to sympathetic resonance with the drama. For them it is just like watching a really good movie. They don’t judge anything and just accept the process. If we can approach this year as they do, it will make our lives a lot easier.

Thanks for putting up with the humans a little longer. May we listen to you, your creatures and your trees, and may we all live in harmony with each other. Many of us love you so very deeply, and the ones who don’t would if they were even a tiny bit in touch with you. Please help them to know you, so the forgetful humans will remember who they are. Then we can all live in peace, abundance, love, playfulness and joy.

Lots of tree hugs, faery kisses, pixie dust and mama love,

The Bankers Manifesto of 1892

I discovered this little gem by following a link from Freedom Reigns County Project to an example of a County Relocalization Project in Ohio. Their site quotes from something called The Bankers Manifesto of 1892, which seems to be playing out like clockwork again, especially with the “housing crisis” and the bogus 2-party political system:


“People without homes will not quarrel with their leaders. History repeats itself in regular cycles. This truth is well known among our principal men who are engaged in forming an imperialism of the world. While they are doing this, the people must be kept in a state of political antagonism.

“The question of tariff reform must be urged through the organization known as the Democratic Party, and the question of protection with the reciprocity must be forced to view through the Republican Party.

“By thus dividing voters, we can get them to expend their energies in fighting over questions of no importance to us, except as teachers to the common herd. Thus, by discrete actions, we can secure all that has been so generously planned and successfully accomplished.”

The quoted portions jumped out at me enough to see if I could find the full Bankers Manifesto of 1892, and I found it here. Thanks to Federal Observer Articles for posting the following in its entirety. I report it here in hopes of shining a little more light for those people still convinced that knee-jerk Democrat or Republican support will somehow resolve the money issues tearing apart our country and our lives. The bankers’ choice really comes down to one option: “Obamney.” It’s not unlike Matrix movie viewers convinced they’re so smart by choosing “the red pill” over “the blue pill,” not even considering that they could opt for no pill, a purple pill, or something completely outside the pillbox! Opening your eyes to reality doesn’t need to look tragic, and there are far more diverse options in this world than “Zion.”

If you, or people you know have trouble believing “conspiracy theories” that the banksters run both political parties in order to keep people divided and distracted, then you might find it interesting that the Bankers Manifesto of 1892 explicitly advises: “Capital must protect itself in every possible manner through combination (conspiracy) and legislation.” Here’s the full document:

The Bankers Manifesto of 1892

Revealed by US Congressman Charles A. Lindbergh, SR from Minnesota before the US Congress sometime during his term of office between the years of 1907 and 1917 to warn the citizens.

“We (the bankers) must proceed with caution and guard every move made, for the lower order of people are already showing signs of restless commotion. Prudence will therefore show a policy of apparently yielding to the popular will until our plans are so far consummated that we can declare our designs without fear of any organized resistance.

The Farmers Alliance and Knights of Labor organizations in the United States should be carefully watched by our trusted men, and we must take immediate steps to control these organizations in our interest or disrupt them.

At the coming Omaha Convention to be held July 4th (1892), our men must attend and direct its movement, or else there will be set on foot such antagonism to our designs as may require force to overcome. This at the present time would be premature. We are not yet ready for such a crisis. Capital must protect itself in every possible manner through combination (conspiracy) and legislation.

The courts must be called to our aid, debts must be collected, bonds and mortgages foreclosed as rapidly as possible.

When through the process of the law, the common people have lost their homes, they will be more tractable and easily governed through the influence of the strong arm of the government applied to a central power of imperial wealth under the control of the leading financiers. People without homes will not quarrel with their leaders.

History repeats itself in regular cycles. This truth is well known among our principal men who are engaged in forming an imperialism of the world. While they are doing this, the people must be kept in a state of political antagonism.

The question of tariff reform must be urged through the organization known as the Democratic Party, and the question of protection with the reciprocity must be forced to view through the Republican Party.

By thus dividing voters, we can get them to expand their energies in fighting over questions of no importance to us, except as teachers to the common herd. Thus, by discrete action, we can secure all that has been so generously planned and successfully accomplished.”

Thanks again to Federal Observer for sharing relevant historical documents!

[As I finished typing that I was at 777 for word count. “777 — The angels applaud you… ‘congratulations, you’re on a roll! Keep up the good work and know your wish is coming true.’ This is an extremely positive sign and you should also expect more miracles to occur.” Thanks, Doreen Virtue and angels. Indeed, I’ve got some big wishes, and I anticipate and relish those miracles. 😉 ]
