Door Number 26 ~ Strength Portal with Quan Yin and Tiger

Strength Portal with Quan Yin and Tiger by Laura Bruno

This latest portal was actually commissioned before the Queen of Wands Imbolc Portal, way back on April 8, 2021! As I’ve shared before, these portals have their own process and timing, which always seems perfect in retrospect. I checked transits for the original email requesting a portal, and the Midheaven (top of the chart/career/public life) of that moment was 19°08′ Taurus, less than one degree ahead of Uranus during this final Saturn in Aquarius square Uranus in Taurus event, most exact from October 3-6, 2022.

That same degree also marked this Summer’s triple conjunction of Mars/Uranus/North Node in Taurus. Despite — or perhaps because of — Independence Day, I got nudged to sketch the layout on July 4, 2022, and I painted the bulk of the portal during the triple conjunction in late July/early August. I didn’t plan it, but in addition to strength, this portal offers strongly liberating energy.

The original commission requested a dragon instead of a tiger, but a powerful dream told me “absolutely not” on the dragon portal. My dream made sense to the patron, too, and she changed her request to a tiger and Quan Yin. Since the traditional Strength card features a lion sitting with a woman, this seemed perfect!

Little did we know how perfect. The Queen of Wands portal commission came out of “nowhere” and was most insistent. The speed of dream downloads and synchronicities forced it ahead of the slowly unfolding Strength commission. I finished that portal on Imbolc 2022, a day especially important for Ms. Queen of Wands — but also the day we entered the Year of the Tiger. Well, then! As my Dream Guys say, “In perfect love and perfect trust, perfect timing is a must.”

The quote on this portal is, “Love is the bridge between you and everything.” ~ Rumi

Different angle of Strength portal, before gluing the crystals

I checked transits for when she proposed this quote on October 28, 2021, and sure enough, those link into the Mars/Uranus/North Node conjunction, as well as the current Saturn square Uranus event. The Part of Fortune (happy spot of the chart/another Fate marker) conjuncted the triple conjunction’s South Node in Scorpio, opposite 18+° Taurus. This connection further enhances the liberating quality of the portal, with a reminder that we grow strong by releasing that which no longer serves.

Quan Yin (also spelled Kwan Yin) is the Buddhist Goddess of Mercy. According to holymtn.com, “Quan Yin is a shortened form of a name that means One Who Sees and Hears the Cry from the Human World.” This fits with one Strength card meaning: the ability to soothe others’ grief. Quan Yin embodies compassion and a quiet, feminine strength, which seems like an antidote to the polarized energies of our current times. Instead of bullying or forcing her way, Quan Yin flows like water, bringing children and nurturing humanity like a mother.

I finished this portal the day before the September 25, 2022 New Moon in Libra — whose Sabian Symbol was, “THE DAWN OF A NEW DAY REVEALS EVERYTHING CHANGED.” I packed it up and shipped it off on Saturday, the 24th, and then David took me on a surprise outing to the largest rock shop in Michigan. We walked into Rockhound Rock Shop in Galesburg, and what did I see? Statue upon statue of Quan Yin! Another wink confirming the perfect timing of this year-and-a-half long project.

As the portal’s Rumi quote says, “Love is the bridge between you and everything.” Every portal has personal and collective impact. This one arrived to the patron in the same timing as the devastation of far away Hurricane Ian. For the patron, the portal brings strength, flow and affirms the inter-connectedness of all things. For those who’ve suffered loss, this portal offers mercy, compassion, and soothing comfort. We can be strong in many ways, and I coded this portal for inner strength that comes from the heart. I tried to tie everything visually together:

Quan Yin’s silhouette echoes the mountains, and her halo doubles as the Sun. Her flowing robe becomes more angular as it rests upon the tiger’s stripes, and I paired Quan Yin and the tiger to evoke the Dao (or yin yang) symbol. The patron and I both felt led to embrace blues and oranges — integrating opposites on the color wheel. A lemniscate brings infinity to the circle.

At some point in the creation process, I realized I needed to order raw garnet to create a 3D red lotus effect. In Sanskrit, Quan Yin’s “name is Padma-pâni, or ‘Born of the Lotus.'” She’s often shown holding a lotus, and this red lotus also links her to Door Number 7 ~ the Lovers Portal, whose quote reads: Between God and the soul there is no between. ~Julian of Norwich. Garnet is associated with both the first and heart chakras — reminding us to stay grounded so that we can live more strongly from our hearts. This earthy love energy ties into the mountains, rocks, and animal communication of the portal.

The UR Runes on the bottom left of Quan Yin’s gown evoke strength and roots. The patron also wanted flowing water as a reminder of flexibility and movement. I added LAF Runes to the water to subconsciously suggest that flow.

As often happens, I had difficulty photographing this portal. I took some preliminary shots before gluing the crystals in place, just to show the patron I had almost finished. When I glued the crystals in their final spots the next day, gray skies forced me to turn on lights to show the details. This changes the color, but also reveals how the portal looks different in different lighting and at different angles. I used metallic archival pens for some of the details and coding, plus acrylic pastels over the acrylic paint. In person, the portal glows.

I topped one mountain with a single amethyst crystal and the other with three clear quartz crystals that arrived with the garnet. I took their inclusion as a nudge to use them in the portal, and I love how they look like ice. This echoes a theme we played around with early on — fire and ice.

In addition to the portal’s Earth, Fire and Water, the quartz and amethyst evoke Air and Spirit. They also link to the garnet lotus held by Quan Yin. You can’t quite tell from the photos, but I colored the tiger’s eyes blue to match her robes, and I shaded the tiger with tones from the Sun/halo and Quan Yin’s skin. Some of his stripes are outlined in bronze and gold, which echoes the details of her face and hands. Since a lotus grows in water, it connects Quan Yin to the pool below.

The amethyst on the mountain top connects to the amethyst wand tip of the Queen of Wands portal that jumped ahead of this one. The Rumi quote “Love is the bridge between you and everything” also echoes the step bridge pictured in the Queen of Wands. As I created both commissioned portals, I kept marveling at the ways they intertwined. Totally different patrons, and yet somehow their portals communed with each another throughout the creation process.

The UR Runes on Quan Yin’s robe echo Door Number 16: UR ~ Not All Who Wander are Lost, posted on 3/10/2013. I’ve already mentioned the red lotus that ties into the Lovers Door, originally created in April 2010, then updated in January 2015. Quan Yin’s blue robe links her to the Justice portal, which also features a Rumi quote: “The universe and the light of the stars come through me.” Door Number 17: Elen of the Ways likewise features a Rumi quote, “Love says: ‘There is a way. I have traveled it thousands of times.'” I don’t know why certain portals reverberate with others, but this phenomenon reactivates the earlier portals. The Strength portal summons qualities of Love, Justice, Healing, Passion, Liberation, Sustainable Sovereignty, and finding the way back on path.

I could write more about this tightly woven portal, but much of the coding remains private. The back is covered in Runes spelling out various quotes, statements and intentions. I did at least two Reiki Healing Attunements on this portal, long before I sketched the images. To me, the whole process embodies strength embraced through calm and patience. Quiet inner and outer centering bring power. By aligning all the elements and harmonizing with everything in and around us, we open ourselves to Grace and discover strength beyond our own understanding. “In perfect love and perfect trust, perfect timing is a must.”

I always feel honored to co-create these portals. This one goes so well with the patron’s energy! Thanks to her for allowing me to share photos and some of the journey.

Timothy Glenn ~ Uranus Electrifies Taurus 2018-2032

If today’s post makes your head spin, you’re not alone. Writing this article challenged even Timothy Glenn’s vast intellect and ability to keep track of not just one but three astrological cycles — the Tropical (or Western) zodiac, the Sidereal (or Eastern) zodiac, and the ways these dance together. He expresses things that the current iteration of human brain can barely comprehend.

If you have minimal or no understanding of astrology, I suggest you skip this post, or allow its themes to wash over you without trying to nail down the details. If you’d like to do some “remedial Timothy Glenn,” click through the links to previous articles he’s written. Bottom line in non-astro babble: we’re in and have been in a time of extreme chaos for over a decade. But there’s a very bright light at the end of this exploding tunnel. If you manage your vibration and keep your wits about you, you can benefit in huge ways from the current and coming times.

This post and the linked articles serve as a 40,000 foot view of where we’ve been and where you could be headed, depending on which timeline you choose. As a side note: if you felt the invisible war kick into much higher gear this past weekend and early this week, you are not alone, and no, you’re not crazy. The stakes run extremely high right now. Timothy ends his article with a Rumi quote, and I’ll end my intro with the Rumi poem I excerpted for Door Number 17: Elen of the Ways:

There Is a Way

The intellect says: “The six directions are limits: there is no way out.”
Love says: “There is a way. I have traveled it thousands of times.”
The intellect saw a market and started to haggle;
Love saw thousands of markets beyond that market.

Uranus Electrifies Taurus 2018-2032
by Timothy Glenn

Let’s begin with an excerpt from the 2018 article Uranus in Taurus: The Preview, under the subheading Another Fine Myth.

Q. What happens when the irresistible force meets the immovable object?

A. The so-called immovable object has its illusions shattered.

“Many of our Taurean illusions are coming up for review. Think you’re grounded? Think the Earth is solid? Think institutions and ways of life are permanent and immutable? Uranus in Taurus will invite you to guess again.

“As our old friend the Buddha pointed out, the entire universe is transient. Everything is moving, flowing. Nothing is solid and stationary.”

Perhaps in this case Taurus can be analogized as a gigantic boulder that cannot be moved as a whole, using the available tools. But given sufficient time, Uranus can chip away at the Taurean boulder and whittle it down so it can be removed piecemeal.

Again from the 2018 article:

All That Matters

Everything earthy will be challenged. Materially based, consumer driven societies will rethink and retool, or risk extinction. The old greed-fueled financial systems of debt slavery have reached their expiration date.

Uranus also serves as the Liberator. Uranus loves to create opportunities. Uranus promotes conscious evolution. And this is where Uranus can bring its highest ideals right down to Earth.

We will all have adventures in realigning our priorities, to the point that some of our dearest old values will be weighed and found wanting. Not a single one of us can expect to usher in the New Earth while carrying on in any of the old world paradigms.

May the Force Be With You

Uranus fuels the Aquarian awakening as it burns through earthbound illusions like opacity and solidity. And when it comes down to push and shove in games of an irresistible force versus any kind of object, Star Wars aficionados prefer to encourage us by saying “May the Force be with you.” We never hear “May the Object be with you.”

Taurus involves objects, like our possessions and valuables, because it represents our values. Anything inauthentic will be cast into the cosmic recycle bin. Indeed, it’s time to get real.

We will see a massive re-prioritizing by the human collective – at least by those of us willing to transcend our thousands of years’ worth of brainwashing and conditioning. Jason Breshears (archaix.com) uses the term Dungeon Programming. This conjures imagery from Plato’s Allegory of the Cave. Who among us has truly chosen to exit the Cave and leave the illusions behind?

A Timeline Overview

Most people exclusively focus on either the Tropical Zodiac or the Sidereal Zodiac; western or eastern astrology, respectively. This brings to mind the famous quote from the refrain of Rudyard Kipling’s poem The Ballad of East and West: “East is east, and west is west, and never the twain shall meet.” Both are valid systems, and a comprehensive timeline overview would be incomplete without factoring in both Zodiacs.

December 13, 2024: Uranus retrogrades back into Sidereal Aries.
March 18, 2025: Uranus enters Sidereal Taurus for the long haul.

Note: This brief period gives us Uranus in Taurus in both Zodiacs.

Back Up the Truck

Let’s turn back the clock for a brief synopsis of what Uranus had been working on while electrifying Topical Aries. The defining astrological influence of the preceding decade involved Uranus in Aries forming a square to Pluto in Capricorn. Uranus the revolutionary in Aries (named for the Grecian god of war, whose planetary ruler is Mars, named for the Roman god of war) escalated the long-raging and far-ranging war for human liberation to a thundering crescendo.

The old world plutocracy fought to maintain its position in Capricorn, which is ruled by Saturn. Despite its pretenses to the contrary, the ancient Saturnian Death Cult finally had its death grip on humanity broken. The old system’s minions still had lot of fight left in them, so Uranus continued hurling “enlightening bolts” through its revolutionary volunteers.

A Preparatory Timeline

May 28, 2010: Uranus entered Tropical Aries for the preview.
August 14, 2010: Uranus retrograded back into Tropical Pisces.
March 12, 2011: Uranus entered Tropical Aries for the long haul.

The 7 exact squares of Uranus and Pluto:

June 24, 2012
September 19, 2012
May 20, 2013
November 1, 2013
April 21, 2014
December 14, 2014
March 16, 2015

June 28, 2016: Uranus entered Sidereal Aries for the preview.
September 1, 2016: Uranus retrograded back into Sidereal Pisces.
April 8, 2017: Uranus entered Sidereal Aries for the long haul.

Uranus in Aries on Steroids

This gave Uranus a little more than a full year to run its revolutionary operations in Aries uninterrupted in both Zodiacs simultaneously – from April 8 of 2017 to May 15 of 2018 – before beginning its triple transit over the cusp of Tropical Taurus. The grand finale encompassed six more full months of Uranus in Taurus in both Zodiacs, from November 6 of 2018 to May 6 of 2019. This provided the revolutionary forces with plenty of momentum to carry on with Uranus thundering against the old system from Sidereal Aries, while beginning to rock the Earth in Tropical Taurus.

Uranus had established itself in Tropical Aries just as it entered the orb of influence for the square to Pluto.

From the article Pluto and Uranus Go Cycling Part Two:

“The war had been raging underground for decades. But in the 2012 to 2015 phase, the conflict emerged onto the surface where even the normies could see it. They might still be hoodwinked by the old world’s propaganda machine as to what was actually happening and why, but the deceivers needed to shift into overdrive, spinning bogus narratives to distract and mislead their steadily dwindling audience. Welcome to current events.”

The gauntlet had been thrown by the spring of 2015. The old world’s control grid had been officially challenged, and it was now Game On. In the interim, the old system’s death grip on the world had been broken. The former controllers would retain a steadily weakening grip, but their former death grip would not be regained. They have a lot of fight left in them because they know nothing else. They remain intent on wreaking whatever havoc they can, however futile their efforts may prove to be in the end.

Meanwhile, Back at Uranus in Taurus

For the September Equinox of 2022, we had Mercury, Chiron, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune and Pluto all in retrograde motion, as outlined in the August 29 article This Is So Retro. Even though the Fog of War has grown thick, it doesn’t need to pull the wool over our eyes. May we have the wisdom to keep our wits about us.

Uranus in Taurus has a major Deep State weapons system in the crosshairs: the old world economic system. The banksters and their debt-based Babylonian Money Magic are due to be hit by a cosmic lightning bolt. However, we are witnessing a curious phenomenon. The dominators and the liberators both need to take down the old economic system to implement a new one. With all the current retrograde energy, and with the banksters acting in desperate bravura, we are entering a Mad Max level of information warfare.

Revelation Inspires Revolution

Our current retrograde season carries the potential to reverse the momentum of the Information War, to the point that the mainstream corporate propaganda outlets will be pressured into backpedaling on more and more of their narratives. On the grassroots level, too many people know too much. The tide of the awakening cannot be stemmed, let alone be stopped. We can expect to see minions of the old guard scrambling to throw each other under the bus.

Here are a few bits of astrobabble: Mars the Warrior entered Tropical Gemini on August 20, 2022 – perfect for escalating the information war. He will advance to 25 degrees of Gemini before turning retrograde on October 30. He will have briefly entered Sidereal Gemini on October 17 prior to stationing retrograde, and will remain operational in both Tropical and Sidereal Gemini until November 14. Mars will sweep all the way back to 8 degrees of Tropical Gemini, and then resume direct motion on January 12, 2023. His forward charge will propel him all the way through the rest of Tropical Gemini (ending on March 25, 2023) and then all the way through Sidereal Gemini (March 13 to May 11, 2023). The keyboard warriors will have a heyday in the Meme Wars.

In addition to the Mars in Gemini adventures, Pluto will still be operating in Capricorn in both Zodiacs until March 23, 2023. On that date, Pluto will enter Tropical Aquarius, which is ruled by Uranus. This will begin a quintuple transit back and forth over that cusp. The Apocalypse – literally the Unveiling – will swing into an even higher gear.

Bifurcating Timelines

For more than a decade, we have been witnessing increased polarization of energies in our world. We can analogize it as the Biblical separation of the wheat from the chaff. Inelia Benz calls it The Split, and has been talking and writing about it since 2011. Souls have been choosing to Ascend to an incomparably more expansive level of consciousness, while others have been surrendering themselves to getting tossed back into the cosmic recycle bin.

Painting with a broad brush, two basic time tracks are looming before us. One is organic. The other is synthetic.

Welcome to Cyborg City

Working from the Archaix data, Jason Breshears has spoken extensively about a time of unprecedented abundance (especially for the United States) following our current political and economic transformation of 2022-2023. He has even described it as a utopia. He also emphasizes that this period of prosperity would only last about a decade and a half – until the world-changing Phoenix Event of 2040, the year that Pluto finally exits Sidereal Capricorn. A comprehensive outline is provided in the July 11 article The Plutonian Phoenix Does Capricorn, 2008-2040: A Timeline Overview.

Synthetic timelines would lure people into extreme states of dependency on external forces, to the point of surrendering their humanity to achieve some theoretical empowerment in an artificial matrix. You could enter an even deeper dream world through virtual reality. Is your phone trying to groom you for being transmogrified into an android? No problem. You could have super powers! As Agent Smith told Cypher in the first Matrix film, “Anything you want.” What could go wrong?

Legions of egos may succumb to the temptations offered by artificial intelligence and its virtual reality traps, but multitudes of Souls are opting to return to our innate organic way of expressing life in the natural universe.

Inherent Abundance

As outlined earlier, the setup phase for the time of unparalleled abundance will involve Uranus entering Taurus in the Sidereal Zodiac. The manifestations may not seem as fantastic as the illusions experienced by those who have chosen the virtual reality timelines, but blessings will abound on the organic timelines.

June 1, 2024: Uranus enters Sidereal Taurus for a preview.
December 13, 2024: Uranus retrogrades back into Sidereal Aries.
March 18, 2025: Uranus enters Sidereal Taurus for the long haul.

Note: This brief period gives us Uranus in Taurus in both Zodiacs.

July 7, 2025: Uranus enters Tropical Gemini for a preview.
November 8, 2025: Uranus retrogrades back into Tropical Taurus.
April 26, 2026: Uranus enters Tropical Gemini for the long haul.

Note: For these last five and a half months we will again have Uranus in Taurus in both Zodiacs. And then Uranus will keep on electrifying Sidereal Taurus into the year 2032.

Uranus Trine Pluto

The phase of massive growth and opportunity will be fully established by the user-friendly trine of Uranus and Pluto. Uranus will have already been operating within the orb of influence for the trine before the setup period is complete. Here are the dates of the 5 exact trines:

July 17, 2026
November 29, 2026
June 15, 2027
January 13, 2028
May 10, 2028

As we approach that magical phase of abundance, we might give sincere consideration to practical caveats. The transitional phase in our immediate future will give the old world technocrats a chance to generate false flag events, complete with misleading narratives. Their agenda will always include ruses to increase division among us. The more we unite at grassroots level, the more we terrify the Matrix Minions.

We have witnessed the results of our social consciousness indulging in banal, asinine, trivial pursuits when abundance is available – such as the previous century’s Uranus/Pluto trine that kicked off the Roaring Twenties. Those who fail to learn the lessons of history are doomed to repeat it. May we choose wisely. We will be blessed with opportunities to transcend Dungeon Programming, and co-create a whole new Reality while still living as these human avatars within the Hologram.

Even the Matrix – or the Hologram, or the False Light Universe, or whatever we choose to call this Simulacrum – is an expression of the Field of Infinite Possibilities. Ultimately, everything is The Field. We may not always agree on our interpretations of our data sets. But agreement occurs in the head. None of that will matter as our story unfolds, if we remain aligned in our hearts.

Universal Love is the Essence of The Field in its Infinite Wholeness. And as Rumi said: “Out beyond the ideas of wrong-doing and right-doing, there is a field. I’ll meet you there.”

October 2022 Forecast and Fourth Quarter North Node Horoscopes

OCTOBER 2022 FORECAST

October 1 Venus in Libra opposite Jupiter in Aries. A positive start to the month! Venus and Jupiter often bring good things even in opposition. Self-esteem, confidence and supportive relationships get a boost today. Pause for two days before deciding to splurge if it would put you into debt, but allow yourself to expand, celebrate and upgrade now if you can afford to do so.

October 2 Mercury stations direct in Virgo. After three weeks of miscommunications, lost emails and misunderstandings, the Messenger sets things in order once again in one of his home signs. Expect more details to surface regarding any situations since September 9, but Mercury is also the cosmic trickster. His actions reverberate through future and past Rx periods and stations, so we might receive information about other times Mercury stationed direct. November 3, 2020 was one such time. Whatever information arises will be thorough. Mercury in Virgo digs and communicates in more comprehensive ways than Mercury in his other home sign, Gemini.

October 3-6 Saturn in Aquarius square Uranus in Taurus. Although this square goes exact by degree and not to the minute, we will feel it! Saturn-Square-Uranus energy colored all of 2021 with its controversial mandates and protests. Questions of top down authority vs. individual rights re-surge. Food scarcity vs. food sovereignty, electricity, Big Tech, financial systems, transhumanism, and censorship also rise as key topics. Frustration peaks. So do demands for creative solutions. In order to benefit from this friction, look for nuances, irony and opportunity. You cannot comply yourself out of tyranny, but revolution with no plan breeds anarchy, which then breeds another form of tyranny. Aim for evolution, beyond mere revolution.

October 8 Pluto stations direct in Capricorn. After a deep dive since April 29, Lord of the Underworld prepares to resurface. All those hidden things you thought would never see the light of day? Pluto drags ’em up when he’s good and ready. Nobody pushes Pluto around. Resistance is futile. Try to suppress that force, and you’ll find death, destruction and devastation like you never imagined. Work with Pluto, and he brings healing, rebirth and regeneration beyond your wildest dreams. Ignore him at your peril. If you’ve ever wanted to clean house, do so now. You have support.

October 9 Full Moon in Aries, 4:55 p.m. Eastern US time. The Full Moon conjuncts Chiron, alerting us to a need for healing. The Sabian Symbol for this “Blood Moon” is: (ARIES 17°): TWO DIGNIFIED SPINSTERS SITTING IN SILENCE. The symbol encourages us to pull inside ourselves, yet paradoxically to do so together. We must tend to our own inner landscape, but group meditations and prayer bring powerful results. Consider sitting in silence with one or more people, and holding an intention for love and healing. Nature and animal friends count, too! If you don’t have a person to meditate with, expand your idea of solidarity. Heads up: this Full Moon conjuncts the start-of-Watergate Chiron and sits between the US natal Chiron and transiting Chiron. An extremely challenging and painful time for the United States.

October 10 Mercury re-enters Libra. The Messenger moves from gathering all the details to communicating them in a manner that fosters harmony, partnership, grace and beauty. The next few weeks help to build — rather than burn — bridges.

October 11-12 Sun in Libra trine Saturn in Aquarius, Mercury in Libra opposite Jupiter in Aries, and Mars in Gemini square Neptune in Pisces. These are big energy days with lots of aspects. Huge revelations shatter illusions. A difficult, but potentially productive time, provided we balance multiple perspectives. Action seems slower than desired. Small sacrifices occur in order to win a much larger spiritual war. Although some of these actions focus on politics and the legal realm, we must transcend ego to understand philosophical and spiritual context of events.

October 17-18 Sun and Venus in Libra trine Mars in Gemini. Light and love infuse willpower and action. You’ll feel more motivated and optimistic about your prospects. Romance, creativity and potential breakthroughs are in the air.

October 19-20 Sun and Venus in Libra square Pluto in Capricorn. An intense period that highlights power dynamics within relationships. Beware of manipulation, compulsions and obsessions that lead to volatile situations. Breakthroughs and deep intimacy are possible, but these are highly charged days. Pay attention to uncomfortable feelings and realizations that rise to the surface. Dreams and visceral reactions offer deep insights.

October 23 Sun and Venus enter Scorpio and Saturn stations direct in Aquarius. The dial for intensity and commitment turns up several notches. Beware of jealousy and a desire for revenge. Focus instead on intimacy, revelations, and deep, solid connection.

October 25 New Moon in Scorpio and Solar Eclipse, 6:49 a.m. Eastern US time. This New Moon Solar Eclipse occurs at exactly 2°00′ Scorpio. This degree emphasizes sacrifice of something old and cherished, the surrender of which allows us to move forward. Venus sits in the same degree, bringing love and beauty to the process of transmutation. Memories remain but new life beckons.

October 28 Jupiter retrograde re-enters Pisces. For clues about how Jupiter’s return to Pisces might affect you, look back to April 2022, as well as September 2010 – January 22, 2011. Many of the same degrees will reactivate. Faith soars, and we feel uplifted. Things that began during those times will return, evolve, or spiral in larger ways between now and December 20, 2022.

October 29 Mercury enters Scorpio. The time between now and November 17 favors deep research, powerful communication and offers a good opportunity to make amends. Sincere apologies go a long way during Mercury in Scorpio. They also buffer a tendency to use words as weapons. Keen insights arise, often through hidden channels. The subconscious finds freer expression, and we might find ourselves sharing secrets in more intimate and vulnerable ways. It seems easier to process dark, disturbing information. The collective worldview could undergo radical transformation during this period.

October 30 Mars stations retrograde in Gemini. Let the games begin! Mars is extra active in Gemini, and will retrace the path he’s traveled since September 3, 2022. Mars remains retrograde until January 12, 2023. We’ll feel a push-pull of activity mixed with a need for greater patience in order to get things right. Anyone with planets or angles in the 3-29 degree range of Gemini, Pisces, Virgo or Sagittarius will feel this in a major way. The US natal chart’s Uranus, Mars and Descendant get triple fly-by’s from the God of War, Will and Action. Activity pauses the day before Samhain/Halloween, one of the thinnest veil times of the year. A good day to honor Ancestors who fought for you in their time.

How October’s sky weather affects you will vary, depending on your entire natal chart, but your North Node Horoscope transcends monthly sky events. That’s because your North Node reveals what your soul came here to do. By midlife, the soul starts longing and pressing us to live our true purpose. At first, it whispers through intuition. Then it knocks a little louder through “coincidences” and external events. When not heard and honored, the soul’s longing can show up as health crises, marriage or work issues, or wondering “is this all there is?” If you feel a need to reinvent yourself, following North Node guidance helps you do that authentically — for you.

Unlike generic Sun Sign horoscopes, which ignore so many other aspects, following North Node guidance will always lead you in the right direction. Doors open, healing happens, relationships improve, and life gets more magical. This quarterly column will help you tap into your personal North Node Mojo. When you start living your North Node purpose, we all win, because you not only begin to light up your own life. You light up the world.     

You can find your North Node sign here which is often different than your Sun sign. If you’re right on the cusp, consider both possibilities or book a reading for more clarity.

FOURTH QUARTER 2022 NORTH NODE HOROSCOPES

ARIES NORTH NODE: You have what it takes to triumph in these challenging times! Fear not. You were made to rise to the occasion. Your path is more about action than daydreaming, but strategic visualization helps you to succeed. Don’t sacrifice yourself to or for anyone else. If you can’t see a way forward, you’ll find victory by turning your perspective upside down and inside out. Mars, your North Node sign’s ruler, assists from Gemini. “Hurry up and wait” marks this quarter. You’re on a need to know basis, but when you get the nudge to act, do! You want to hide from conflict and confrontation, but you benefit from wisely chosen battles. Courage breeds opportunity.

TAURUS NORTH NODE: October and November highlight your North and South Node axis, with key planets moving through Taurus and Scorpio. The Sun, Venus and Mercury in Scorpio, bring up old relationships, worldviews and versions of yourself for review. The November 8 Full Moon Lunar Eclipse in Taurus reactivates the Mars-Uranus-North Node conjunction from late July/early August. You’ve got another powerful chance to set intentions and manifest something new. Remember, Taurus North Node natives benefit from step-by-step progress rather than Scorpio’s trauma-drama. Repeat and build upon prior successes instead of demanding change in one fell swoop.

GEMINI NORTH NODE: This is a quarter to get things done! With Mars crisscrossing your North Node sign, you can expect activation and opportunity. Just because it hasn’t happened yet doesn’t mean it will not happen now. Watch for signs and synchronicities. These arrive like love notes from the Universe, telling you to keep exploring, keep playing, and keep finding new avenues to delight. The December 7-8 Full Moon in Gemini almost exactly conjuncts Mars. This event marks a powerful time to challenge old dogma and welcome new ways of engaging life. You are so much more than your past. Enjoy the journey and increased pace.

CANCER NORTH NODE: A surprisingly active quarter, even without conjunctions in your North Node sign. Uranus in Taurus, Neptune in Pisces and trines from Scorpio offer positive transformation to your nodal axis. In December, the Sun, Mercury and Venus traverse your South Node sign of Capricorn, bringing a chance to review old relationships, worldviews and self-conceptions. How can you integrate the best of the old with where your soul longs to go? You might need periods of rest and retreat in order to make the most of opportunities for emotional and spiritual liberation. Take time to nurture yourself and others.

LEO NORTH NODE: Friction continues from significant activity in Taurus, Scorpio and Aquarius. You might feel a vague sense of irritation or impatience, but pay attention to opportunities that arise from “nowhere.” Mars in Gemini sextiles your North Node and offers subtle, yet strong support. Solutions to your challenges don’t always scream for attention, but they do arrive. A combination of hard work, passion and divine dispensation makes this quarter highly productive. Your financial situation could change for the better as your ships come into harbor. Stay grounded and tapped into your radiant heart. It will lead you well.

VIRGO NORTH NODE: Fourth Quarter 2022 could shatter grand illusions and New Age platitudes. If you find your faith shaken, take time to ground yourself in daily tasks and rituals. Tend to your health, your finances and your worldview. When the bigger picture stops making sense, drop into the details. Gather information and see how things begin to fit together. Resist the urge to generalize too fast or to skip over ugly facts and figures. When you face “the worst case scenario,” you find tremendous strength. If you orient your mind towards service, you’ll discover silver linings to everything you thought you lost. Beware of alcohol, sugar and drugs. You’ll make better decisions without their influence.

LIBRA NORTH NODE: October brings opportunities for love, romance and teamwork. Connections offer greater satisfaction and security than forging ahead on your own. December’s Capricorn energies square your nodal axis, creating productive friction. Pay attention to insights about your own inner conflicts, then aim for harmony inside and out. Take time to relax and retreat when needed. The Universe operates in its own timing. You can position yourself well for its arrival, but you can’t rush destiny. Whenever you feel impatient, look for and create more beauty. Focus on relationships with those walking similar paths.

SCORPIO NORTH NODE: Fourth Quarter 2022 brings Eclipse Season to your nodal axis. The October 25 New Moon in Scorpio Solar Eclipse conjuncts Venus to bring extra blessings to Scorpio North Node natives. An extended passage of Sun, Venus and Mercury in Scorpio highlights destined revelations about your identity, relationships, self-esteem and worldview. You’ll find deep insights into subconscious motivations and how things work. The Great Mystery tips its hand to you. The November 8 Full Moon in Taurus Lunar Eclipse helps you to release old things standing in the way of your happiness.

SAGITTARIUS NORTH NODE: Mars in Gemini stirs things up by activating your South Node sign. You might feel overwhelmed by too many details, distractions and obligations. When in doubt, take the higher, broader view. You can’t be all things to everyone. Find what you love and stick to it, even if that means hard work and a period of apprenticeship. Don’t scatter your energies. You succeed by taking things to their biggest and brightest conclusion. In November, the Sun, Mercury and Venus enter your North Node sign, bringing powerful, destiny aligned encounters. The November 23 New Moon in Sagittarius allows you to realign and shine.

CAPRICORN NORTH NODE: Fourth Quarter 2022 brings a sense of karmic balance and success after a long, tricky journey. You feel more sovereign, more grounded and others recognize your accomplishments. December lights up your North Node sign, especially around the time of the December 23 New Moon in Capricorn. At the end of December, Mercury stations retrograde in Capricorn, so prepare to finish things ahead of the 29th, or expect some major reworkings of destiny level projects and structures. You’ll know whether to finish or await this natural time of review. Just pay attention to which doors open and which ones seem difficult or impossible to enter.

AQUARIUS NORTH NODE: The Saturn-Uranus Square from October 3-6 affects Aquarius North Node natives more than most, because Saturn and Uranus co-rule your sign. When in doubt, you’ll need to lean more towards group harmony and innovation, rather than a “my way or the highway” attitude. With Saturn traversing your sign since December 2017, you may have felt delayed gratification or constriction. Saturn stations direct on October 23, bringing forward momentum as he moves through the rest of Aquarius before entering Pisces on March 7, 2023. Saturn’s not the most popular, but he does troubleshoot for success. Use this time to build a strong foundation for your future.

PISCES NORTH NODE: This is an important quarter for you. Mars squares your nodal axis as he crisscrosses Gemini. This tension creates opportunities that help you to realign with your soul’s true north. You might feel tempted to go into your mind, trying to figure out everything on the mental level, but you’ll find inspiration and grace by tending to your emotions and spirituality. Calm the stormy seas, commit to a glorious Mystery, and allow yourself to retreat from worldly cares. You have nothing to be ashamed of, Pisces. Perfection’s not the goal anymore. Peace, harmony, grace, beauty and unconditional compassion are. Your sign’s ruler, Neptune, stations direct on December 3. If things have felt surreal and slow, don’t worry. Something big is moving in your favor.

New Moon in Libra ~ September 25, 2022

Given all the chatter around “September 24,” I’m posting this ahead of time so people can prepare for the energies. I keep telling clients that it’s VERY difficult right now to pin down exactly what will happen when. So many moving parts are in effect. It feels like life is screaming, “Category 5 Hurricane, Category 5 Hurricane.”

My personal sense is that yes, we are approaching a metaphorical hurricane, and things LOOK bad in some areas. I feel like we’ll wind up with more of a Category 2 Hurricane — significant change, some of it quite radical, but I feel like humanity is actually on the most positive timeline available right now. Some areas won’t even experience a hurricane, just much needed rain. Some people and some areas will have targeted tornadoes in addition to that Category 2 Hurricane. I speak in metaphors, but perhaps also literally.

Bottom line, the consistent message I keep receiving is that things could have been way worse than they are — almost incomprehensibly worse, except I’ve glimpsed those timelines. Collectively, we’re not on those timelines. Some disruption will occur, but seriously, folks, count your blessings!

Thriving is possible, and gratitude is powerful. Yes, things will change. In many cases, that’s a good thing. Change is necessary … but yes, change can be stressful. I posted the Astrological Preparedness Special this month for a reason. 🙂 If you position yourself well, you can benefit from disruption and even chaos. If you position yourself well and “nothing happens,” you’ve still positioned yourself well. You’ll find openings where others find closed doors. As the Hopi Prophecies say, “This can be a good time.”

My September 2022 Forecast shares:

September 25 New Moon in Libra 5:55 p.m. Eastern US time. Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish New Year, begins at Sundown. The Sabian Symbol for this New Moon indicates powerful shifts: (LIBRA 3°): THE DAWN OF A NEW DAY REVEALS EVERYTHING CHANGED. This degree also opposes Jupiter in Aries. Jupiter enlarges everything, so whatever revelations come, they’ll be big. Mercury and Venus conjunct in Virgo, bringing love and grace to the message. Saturn in Aquarius trines Mars in Gemini and squares Uranus in Taurus. The Saturn-Mars trine supports responsible action, but the Saturn-Uranus square demands bolder, revolutionary moves. This New Moon sets the stage for an October Surprise when that square goes within minutes of exact.

Dane Rudhyar elaborates on the Sabian Symbol with a “KEYNOTE: The ever-present possibility of beginning again on a new foundation of values.” Following so soon after Equinox, this New Moon hits the reset button even more so than usual. Jupiter tends to bring blessings, but the magnitude of change initiated by this New Moon could feel more like a “blessing in disguise.” Even longed for changes bring stress, and oftentimes the biggest, most necessary changes arise with a certain degree of inner turmoil before we accept and settle into the shifts.

This intensity gets amplified by the Mercury/Venus conjunction in Virgo trining Pluto in Capricorn. Deep, unconscious feelings express themselves in profound and uncontrollable ways. Long held secrets — told in great detail — change the way we understand our values and ourselves.

The September 25 New Moon in Libra’s Sabian Symbol anticipates more Scorpio themes of death and rebirth: THE DAWN OF A NEW DAY REVEALS EVERYTHING CHANGED. Moon cycles unfold over the course of a month. We might not recognize the full extent of change until the New Moon in Scorpio and Solar Eclipse on October 25. But change is coming.

Libra is ruled by Venus and symbolized by the balanced scales of Justice. Although the Sabian Symbol says, “everything changed,” the sign of Libra clues us to possible areas of extra radical change: relationships, partnerships, alliances, arts, literature, legal matters, and how we balance our lives. If you’ve struggled in any of these areas, then this New Moon bodes well for you.

If the prospect of a new reality scares you, I encourage you to lean into the positive side of Libra. Venus, the Goddess of Love, brings extra grace, harmony and beauty to her home sign. Often, we don’t realize we’re settling for something less until we see the upgrade. Instead of digging in your heels, allow yourself to engage the new, at least in your imagination. Surround yourself with as much beauty and balance as you can in the midst of changes beyond your control. Miracles await for those with eyes to see.

Approaching Go Time?

In my Precognitive Blues, Part 3 post, I shared the following:

A Recent Tarot Dream

On October 2, 2019, I had a potent dream. I stood in a pool at twilight chatting with my friend’s teenage son, Sol. (It seemed more symbolic with the name — Sol, aka “Sun” — rather than the person.) We could overhear my aunt and sister discussing the special mandala shaped patio and walkway under their feet. It featured a center circle at slightly lower elevation than the surrounding circles, which all tilted towards the center circle. My aunt told my sister, this setup would “ensure everyone and everything winds up in the right place at the right time in the event of an earthquake.”

At that point, something in me snapped, and I shouted at the dream itself, “What is the significance of ____?” I listed options, making sure to cover all bases except the one I suspected it might be. All of a sudden, the dream turned into a giant Tarot card! I won’t say which card or my question, because those details are private … and also because I want to make a more universal point about Tarot card dreams.

In any case, the dream went from a pool at twilight with Sol/Sun, overhearing a discussion about cracking foundations, safe mandala patios and sorting people and things in the event of an earthquake … then to my question/demand … and then to a giant cartoon Tarot card. I mentioned before that Tarot cards carry multiple meanings. In my dream, this card added and subtracted details to leave only one possible interpretation. Just in case I tried to miss the point — and yes, in the dream I tried to miss it — the card sparkled and flashed its modified details like a cornball cartoon. Subtle it was not.

An amused voice-over asked, “Any questions?”

Stunned, I found myself back in the swimming pool at twilight, talking to Sol and overhearing the exact same conversation about the mandala patio/walkway/foundation built to ensure everyone and everything winds up where they need to be in the event of an earthquake.

I had this powerful Tarot dream the day Pluto turned from retrograde to direct at 20 Capricorn — a significant position in my life for a variety of reasons. At the time of the dream, I didn’t realize Pluto’s shift, but the dream involved such obvious Plutonian themes that my jaw dropped when I looked up the transits. I wanted to discount the dream, but the astrology forced my left brain into compliance. I began composing a “hypothetical” email to my astrology mentor, Ann Kreilkamp and then laughed at myself. The flashing one-interpretation-only Tarot card gave my right brain no place to run. Pretending I didn’t get the message after seeing the astrology embarrassed me enough to stop composing the email.

You asked, Laura. You demanded an answer. We suggest you deal with it.

I’m still doing my Gemini Houdini negotiations with that dream whammy. For all we want to know, part of us may not really want to know what we already know. That dilemma arises in precognitive and “normal” people, if there’s actually a difference. At some point, we know what we know, whether that information comes in a vision, in a dream, by hypnotherapy, psychic reading, or through careful research and observation. Precognitive Blues, Part 1 and Part 2 explore gradations and complications of seeming foreknowledge. Clairaudience, Clairvoyance, Clairsentience, and Claircognizance explores ways that foreknowledge reveals itself.

Fast forward to September 11, 2022, the 21st anniversary of 9/11. I know I’m not the only one to notice this, because I keep hearing from friends and clients that they also felt a significant shift on September 8. For a friend and myself, the sense of this shift preceded the announcement of Queen Elizabeth’s death, but coincided with the supposed time of her death. My Full Moon in Pisces post noted:

September 10 Full Moon in Pisces, 5:59 a.m. Eastern US time. This Full Moon loosely conjuncts Neptune in Pisces, bringing extra empathy and intuition to an already highly charged day. The Sabian Symbol for this Full Moon is “IN A GIGANTIC TENT, VILLAGERS WITNESS A SPECTACULAR PERFORMANCE.” Whether religious, political or some form of “bread and circuses,” Neptune’s presence adds massive Glamour to the leader of this spectacle. It will be easy to get carried away by sweeping emotions and inspiration. Something about this Full Moon dazzles the public in dramatic ways.

I almost wrote but deleted, “Will that spectacle be a huge state funeral?” With all the memorials, 10 days of mourning, etc., I can’t imagine a more “spectacular performance” than the lead up to Queen E2’s funeral, the event itself and King Charles III’s coronation ceremony.

I was not surprised by the death announcement since I had a dream on August 28 from which I awoke hearing young children singing, “London Bridge is falling down, falling down. London Bridge is falling down, my fair lady!” This dream followed an extreme kundalini experience while watching the movie “London Has Fallen.” As I continued to have what I call kundalini shakes while watching the film, I kept saying to David, “I hope this doesn’t mean something like this is going to happen. I haven’t had these shakes since right before 9/11.” After the Queen died, I learned that the code for her death is “London Bridge has fallen,” and the name for the protocol for transition of power to Charles is called “Operation London Bridge.”

But back to my October 2, 2019 dream about the special mandala floors to ensure everyone and everything winds up in the right place at the right time in the event of an earthquake. Over the years, I keep returning to this metaphor, and I’ve shared it with MANY clients. There seems to be some kind of reality overlay that will shift like a Rubik’s cube and click everyone and everything into place. Others and I have tracked massive synchronicities, dreams and external events, which seem to validate a separate timeline — whether we call that a New Earth, an alternate reality, or Ascension.

In the past few days, the movement of mandala floors showed up in a literal way in my 3D life. This coincided with a bizarre sighting of a hot air balloon, synchronicities around the Moon, as well as earthquakes (seen on a movie, but there’s also an uptick in 3D life). After a Friday session for a colleague, I shared details of a tight Celtic knot of dreams and synchronicities involving the shifting mandala floors and the hot air balloon. She told me that she has had numerous dreams and synchronicities involving hot air balloons as connected to “this time we’re in, go time.” Her most recent hot air balloon synchronicity occurred around the same time as I saw the hot air balloon on the previous day.

But wait! There’s more … this morning, I received an email from the person whose portal matches the card from my October 2, 2019 dream. Her email had the subject line, “Moving Mandalas!” We went back and forth on various synchronicities, only to discover that she used to crew hot air balloons and uses that terminology to describe different types of lift off. She also sent me an image of an owl in the center of a squaring the circle mandala.

I’m barely scratching the surface of dreams, synchronicities and validating 3D world events. I can’t say for certain what’s coming, but it feels like we have entered the next phase of a long, slow and careful process. Remember, my September 2022 Forecast says about the New Moon later this month:

September 25 New Moon in Libra 5:55 p.m. Eastern US time. Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish New Year, begins at Sundown. The Sabian Symbol for this New Moon indicates powerful shifts: (LIBRA 3°): THE DAWN OF A NEW DAY REVEALS EVERYTHING CHANGED. This degree also opposes Jupiter in Aries. Jupiter enlarges everything, so whatever revelations come, they’ll be big. Mercury and Venus conjunct in Virgo, bringing love and grace to the message. Saturn in Aquarius trines Mars in Gemini and squares Uranus in Taurus. The Saturn-Mars trine supports responsible action, but the Saturn-Uranus square demands bolder, revolutionary moves. This New Moon sets the stage for an October Surprise when that square goes within minutes of exact.

We shall see what unfolds, but the sky and Sabian Symbols seem to confirm big shifts below. I’ve noticed that the Moon cycle unfolds from one Full Moon to the next Full Moon, from New Moon to the next New Moon, so this doesn’t necessarily mean everything will look totally different on September 25. But it might!

I’ve tracked this time period for years due to dreams and synchronicities. I posted the Two of Cups portal on Fall Equinox 2020, and Fall Equinox 2019 was also filled with highly charged time slipping events. This 2022 time of equal day and equal night feels like a cosmic hinge point, especially with the powerful New Moon symbolism on the 25th.

For me, this feels extra powerful. On the September 22, 2022 Equinox, my progressed Scorpio Moon shifts into Sagittarius. My progressed Moon entered Scorpio on March 27, 2020 and remains in Pluto’s lair until Fall Equinox 2022. The New Moon on the 25th conjuncts my natal Pluto (death/rebirth/regeneration) and activates my natal Sun-Moon-Pluto Grand Trine, right after my progressed Scorpio Moon (ruled by Pluto) moves from the shadowy Underworld to a bright and bold Sagittarius adventure. How will this play out? No idea, but my progressed Moon has uncannily tracked with the worldwide COVID drama.

My October 2022 Forecast (not published yet as of this post) shares:

October 8 Pluto stations direct in Capricorn. After a deep dive since April 29, Lord of the Underworld prepares to resurface. All those hidden things you thought would never see the light of day? Pluto drags ’em up when he’s good and ready. Nobody pushes Pluto around. Resistance is futile. Try to suppress that force, and you’ll find death, destruction and devastation like you never imagined. Work with Pluto, and he brings healing, rebirth and regeneration beyond your wildest dreams. Ignore him at your peril. If you’ve ever wanted to clean house, do so now. You have support.

Does my October 2, 2019 Pluto stationing direct dream connect to this October 8 Pluto stationing direct? I don’t know. Maybe. It feels connected, but time will tell.

Today’s post won’t make sense to everyone, and that’s OK. I share this because in sessions I find that many intuitive people receive similar dream symbols, messages and synchronicities. Perhaps you are, too. If so, you’re not alone. For whatever it’s worth, I’ve been shown some great challenges for humanity, but also that vibration makes a huge difference of how the challenges will affect individuals. None of us will remain untouched, but it is possible to experience the rebirth and regeneration — sooner and more profoundly — after the metaphorical or literal death and destruction.

Above all, this is a time for prayer, discernment, gentle nurturing, patient waiting — and bold moves if and when we get the signal for “go time.” It’s approaching. I don’t know exactly when or how, but those special mandala floors are on the move!

Full Moon in Pisces ~ September 10, 2022

My September 2022 Forecast shares:

September 10 Full Moon in Pisces, 5:59 a.m. Eastern US time. This Full Moon loosely conjuncts Neptune in Pisces, bringing extra empathy and intuition to an already highly charged day. The Sabian Symbol for this Full Moon is “IN A GIGANTIC TENT, VILLAGERS WITNESS A SPECTACULAR PERFORMANCE.” Whether religious, political or some form of “bread and circuses,” Neptune’s presence adds massive Glamour to the leader of this spectacle. It will be easy to get carried away by sweeping emotions and inspiration. Something about this Full Moon dazzles the public in dramatic ways.

This Full Moon occurs just hours after Mercury stations retrograde in Libra. My Forecast notes:

September 9 Mercury stations retrograde in Libra. Mercury will remain retrograde until October 2, moving through Libra and back into Virgo. This particular Mercury Rx asks us to re-evaluate legal matters, areas of imbalance, injustice, and re-analyze the details. Complex situations call for more than a cursory look, and we may find that things are not as they appeared. As with any Mercury Rx, dot your i’s and cross your t’s. Closely examine or postpone binding contracts. Remember, time moves in cycles. Previous Mercury Rx periods could return as relevant: January 14-February 3, 2022; May 10-June 3, 2022; even as far back as October 14-November 3, 2020.

The combination of Mercury stationing retrograde and a Full Moon in Pisces conjunct ruler Neptune increases the odds of confusion and delusion. Alternatively, it could shine Divine Light on prior times of confusion or delusion. Full Moon cycles play out over the next month, and Mercury remains retrograde for much of this time.

Mercury Rx gets a bad rap, but these periods do facilitate anything that begins with re-. Reflection, revision, re-examination, review, redo. Real revelations will occur during this time period, but their relevance might not seem obvious until Mercury goes direct on October 2 or until the next Full Moon in Aries on October 9. If some grand spectacle appears, take it with a grain of salt and Sun-in-Virgo skepticism. It’s OK to question reality! Especially the miasma that passes for “truth” and “facts” in a brainwashed, zombified, and addicted world.

Tune into the higher octave of Pisces: unconditional compassion, faith, beauty, healing, and a higher perspective far beyond the realm of ego. This is a great time to work on creative projects, which will benefit from ongoing revision and soaring inspiration. Music and theater receive extra oomph from that “spectacular performance” energy. It’s also a good time to explore principles of Reiki, Aikido, Lao-Tzu, Sun Tzu, and Wu Wei.

Pay special attention to any dreams you have during this time. Pisces and Neptune can trigger psychic downloads. Watch for symbolism in waking life, as well.

Timothy Glenn ~ This is So Retro

Timothy Glenn is on a roll! I’m so grateful and honored that he continues to offer his additional astro insights on this blog. Indeed, I’ve sensed a rocky road ahead … but even rocky roads offer blessings along the way. Buckle up and check your shock absorbers. What a spectacular time to be alive!

This Is So Retro
by Timothy Glenn

It’s official. Uranus has gone into retrograde motion. Ordinarily, that wouldn’t seem especially noteworthy, much less foreboding. But then we consider the context.

Pluto has been retrograde since April 29.
Saturn has been retrograde since June 4.
Neptune has been retrograde since June 28.
Chiron has been retrograde since July 19.
Jupiter has been retrograde since July 28.

And then we can factor in the phenomenon of Pluto operating in Capricorn in both the Tropical and Sidereal Zodiacs simultaneously as we head into the grand climax of the United States Pluto Return. This has produced a massive amount of pressure that has been building up throughout these months. It feels like a revolutionary powder keg waiting for someone to strike the proverbial match.

So now we add Uranus retrograde as of August 24.

The match has been struck.

Revelations Activate Revolutions

Uranus rules Aquarius, and has been known as the Revelator, the Awakener, the Idealist, the Revolutionary, the Liberator, the Humanitarian, the Reformer and so forth. When Uranus begins affecting any part of our individual or collective charts, the first thing he does is look for whatever is holding us down or holding us back. He shines bright light into our darkest corners, heedless of who might get blinded by the light.

His original and creative thinking processes immediately start formulating schemes for setting us free. Traditional thinkers often regard his mind as devious, wily and conniving. But every single plot he hatches out is aimed at awakening and liberating us, even from our own delusions. Uranus likes to push us out beyond the parameters of religious beliefs, philosophical systems and societal norms.

A lot of people fear the influence of Uranus because he can upset their little apple carts. Indeed, he can be unpredictable and therefore disruptive. He relies on the strategy of a hide and pounce hunter. He revels in the element of surprise. Unlike Neptune the Slow Dissolver, he waits for the opportune moment, and then strikes with a lightning bolt of Revelation.

Uranus is also known for exhibiting a bit of an attitude. Over the next several months, the creepazoids who have been running and ruining the world are going to hear his battle cry: “Screw this!”

The Aquarian Air Force is ready to unleash Truth Bombs from the sky.

Back to Retrogrades

As we move into September with all the aforementioned retrograde planetary pressure, we could use a little help from a little friend: Mercury. As the ruler of Gemini, Mercury takes charge of accessing and dispensing information. It’s not simply a matter of taking in data and spitting it straight back out again. Mercury loves to amass entire data sets, and then amalgamate, organize and creatively reformat them prior to communicating. It’s like taking a decade’s worth of experience, and distilling it down to a fifteen minute presentation.

The periods of Mercury retrograde are already fairly well known in the general public. In a typical year, Mercury will go into retrograde motion four times, for about three weeks each time. But after resuming direct motion, Mercury then has to retrace his steps back over the terrain where he had just finished confusing the hell out of everybody. This is where we slog our way through the Shadow of the Mercury Retrograde.

Some of us also take note of the period before Mercury stations retrograde. We call this period the Foreshadow or pre-shadow, because we are moving through the very degrees where we know Mercury is going to back over us after he shifts into reverse. And upon completing the actual retrograde, he stations direct and shifts back into first gear, so he can run over us again in the Shadow period.

Mercury entered this foreshadowing period on August 21, merely three days before Uranus began its own retrograde. And the Mercury Retrograde will officially kick off on September 10, the day before the 21st anniversary of the 2001 September 11 false flag attack. The Mercury Retrograde ends on October 2, followed by the Shadow period until October 26.

October Surprises

Another major player in our current retrograde game is Pluto. He was the first to go retrograde, and he will be the first to bundle up this pressurized energy and bulldoze his way forward. On October 8, Pluto will station direct in preparation for bringing the United States Pluto Return to its grand climax. On December 29, for the third and final time this year, Pluto will cross over its exact location in the chart for the 1776 Declaration of Independence. The gloves are coming off.

When elections are held in early November, we often witness impactful revelations or events that carry the potential to shift the outcome of the election. More often than not, an October surprise has been deliberately planned well in advance. Political parties and their candidates will always try to spin any narrative to their own advantage, so our sincere discernment will prove to be crucial during the coming months.

Pluto’s function in Capricorn includes unveiling what has been concealed. Saturn, the ruler of Capricorn, will station direct on October 23. Saturn’s advice for these tumultuous times would be: if you believe you must take sides, choose the side of universal truth. Facts will continue to be laid out in front of you, and sometimes the truth hurts.

However, any time truth hurts, the pain is merely showing us where we still hold mental and emotional attachments to inaccurate narratives.

Real Eyes Realize Real Lies

Aside from the obvious initials of Belief System, the word “lie” appears in the midst of the word “believe”. Human societies have conditioned us for ages to fixate our minds on various ideas, and then declare them true or false. And all too often, reams of fine print accompany a single concept that has an agenda behind it.

Uranus and Company are offering us an adventure in free thinking. Aristotle said, “It is the mark of an educated mind to be able to entertain an idea without accepting it.” We are free to perceive without believing. We are free to regard ourselves as ever-changing bundles of ever-changing perceptions in the midst of an ever-changing universe. And we are free to turn off the so-called mainstream propaganda programming and say, “Screw this!”

We are also free to cultivate our empathy, intuition and sense of resonance as we observe the information war on the world stage. We are free to question everything. What if it’s all scripted? What if it’s all a game of divide and conquer? What if it’s all smoke and mirrors? What if it’s only there to distract us from who and what we truly are? What if most of the technology is no more than a dog and pony show? What if it’s just a movie?

You are free to determine the answers within your own Reality Tunnel, and you are free to change your answers as the story unfolds.

Who’s Who in the Zoo?

You might be tempted to lay bets as to which actors on the world stage are working for the dark side and which ones are working for the light. But you might not want to bet the farm.

There are signs along the roadside that say “Plot Twists Ahead”. Who are the white hats and who are the black hats? For that matter, who are the grey hats and who are the moles? Who are the double agents and who are the triple agents? Who are the ones walking the tightrope in the middle, waiting to see who wins, so they can join in and pretend to have been true to the cause all along?

Who are puppets and who are puppeteers? Who wrote the scripts? Who are the producers and who are the directors?

Mental and emotional attachments to persons, places, roles and specific outcomes aren’t recommended. When living in Sedona back in 1999, a friend and I would spend hours sharing data and comparing notes. We got into the habit of ending each discussion by saying: “Well, it’s a fascinating movie, and we have great seats. Pass the popcorn.”

Mars in Gemini for 7 Months

At the very beginning of August, Mars crossed over the North Node of the Moon and Uranus. This fired a shot across the bow of the ship of the old world, signaling a time of karmic reckoning.

On August 20, Mars entered the Tropical sign of Gemini. As mentioned earlier: Mercury, the ruler of Gemini, entered the pre-shadow of its current retrograde the following day, and then Uranus began its retrograde three days later on August 24. Mars and the Sun squared each other on August 25. If there had been any doubt as to whether the match had been struck to light the powder keg, Mars erased all doubt.

Mars has officially entered the fray. He will heat up the information wars and get a boost from an exact sextile to Jupiter on September 1, enhancing that energy by teaming up with Saturn by way of an exact trine with Saturn on September 28. Since Mars will go retrograde on October 30, he will exactly trine Saturn two more times, the next falling on November 28. The third won’t occur until March 30, 2023.

Another not-so-subtle aspect will see Mars exactly squaring Neptune three times; October 12 and November 19 of 2022, and March 14 of 2023. The Mars/Neptune squares promise to shatter illusions. With Mars going retrograde on October 30, don’t expect the Great Pumpkin to show up with goodies the next evening.

Dear New Age Fluff Bunnies: This is to inform you of a significant shipping delay of your order for puppy dogs, rainbows and butterflies. We apologize for any inconvenience. We are compensating you with a complimentary surprise package of lightning bolts. Yours Truly, the Matrix Team.

Here in the northern hemisphere, when someone asks if we’re ready for fall, the fun rejoinder is: “Do you mean autumn? Or the fall of civilization?”

Garden and Other Updates

Happy Friday! I haven’t posted garden photos in awhile for a few reasons. Mostly, I’ve been super busy with sessions. Last week, we had a wonderful two-day visit from my sweet friend Pamela. We’ve known each other in several iterations, having first met when we both lived in Santa Fe, NM back in 2002. Then we reconnected when be both lived in Monterey, CA in 2007, and periodically on my visits to Pennsylvania since she moved about an hour and a half away from my mom and sister. I think the last time we saw each other was here in Kalamazoo, back in 2018.

It was soooo nice to reconnect. If you happen to live anywhere near Philadelphia, Pamela gives the best massages of anyone I’ve ever known. Just a heads up: you’re in for a treat. No massage on this visit since she flew here on Reiki-infused planes, but we had a great recharge in a visit that stretched longer than linear time.

In addition to enjoying garden goodies, David, Pamela and I went on a history of Kalamazoo tour, and Pamela and I got some nature time the next day:

In and around her visit, I’ve been super busy with sessions related to all the intense astro energies affecting everyone right now. Things seem to be settling down ever so slightly, but I feel like they’ll pick up again soon. I either broke or sprained my left pinky toe yesterday, and that has forced me to slow WAY down. The injury came after I received that message in several other forms but kept pushing it back. Now I have no excuses and no guilt about moving more slowly. I should also have time to finish a portal painting commissioned over a year and a half ago but perfectly timed for right now.

The garden continues blooming like crazy. I love this late summer phase when the front yard looks like a busy airport. So many happy pollinators! Here are today’s photos:

I didn’t take any backyard photos this morning and don’t want to hobble back there with my phone now. Good harvests continue. I filled a huge colander with aronia berries from one bush. I’ll need to harvest the others tomorrow. I brought in five 16″ purple long beans (so much fun!), as well as a zucchini larger than my forearm. We’ve got all the ingredients for another round of ratatouille tonight or tomorrow, and I can’t wait to try some celery. Kalamazoo used to be famous for its celery farms, and I have to say, I’ve never had such beautiful celery success as I have here. We must have just the right amount of something here to make it thrive.

Other than that, I’ll be icing my poor foot, doing sessions and working on a portal. Wishing everyone a beautiful weekend!

Timothy Glenn ~ The Field

This is a follow-up post answering questions received since Timothy’s last article, “The Plutonian Phoenix Does Capricorn, 2008-2040: A Timeline Overview.” According to Tim, the next follow-up post will discuss additional astrological patterns that track with information uncovered by researcher Jason Breshears (archaix.com). Today’s post covers how Tim “sees this, that, or whatever.” Enjoy!

The Field

by Timothy Glenn

There is only the one infinite energy field, often known as The Field of Infinite Possibilities. You can also call it the Universe, the Multiverse, the Omniverse, God, Goddess, Heavenly Father/Mother, Spirit, Creator, All That Is, Infinity, Source, or anything you wish, because everything you could ever think of to call it is already contained within it. You can even address it as Hey, You! No problem – because it’s anything and everything.

Some of the aforementioned expressions carry a lot of baggage, especially the word “God”. Such terms broadcast connotations of belief systems that are designed to function as a tractor beam. They are intended to pull our consciousness into an illusory holographic trap, which in turn is filled with limiting rules and regulations.

Our friends in the realm of physics prefer a neutral term: The Field. Everything is The Field. Everyone is The Field. This brings to mind the words of the wonderful Persian poet Rumi: “Out beyond ideas of wrong-doing and right-doing there is a field. I’ll meet you there.”

You are The Field. There is nothing else to be. Everything is an expression of the whole, and the essence of the whole is always present in each of its parts. Rumi conveys this principle with his classic eloquence: “You are not a drop in the ocean. You are the ocean in a drop.”

You are all of infinity expressing itself at a single point.

Shifting Into Neutral

The Field is completely neutral. In its infinite wholeness, The Field is not dividing itself into positive and negative, right and wrong, true and false, yin and yang, light and dark, good and evil, or any of the zillions of other polarities we could ever imagine.

Neutrality also provides a key to transcendence. Many people approach spiritual practices as though they were making a jailbreak from their earthly reality. By viewing the human world as a prison from which to escape, people make it more real for themselves. They tie their mental and emotional energies to the very world from which they want to liberate themselves. This epitomizes the famous expression coined by Carl Gustav Jung: “What you resist persists.” If you fight it, you feed it.

Like so many endeavors in life, transcendence is not necessarily easy, but extremely simple. Calm down. Center yourself. Enter a state of complete neutrality and render all else irrelevant. And once all claptrap of this alleged reality has been rendered irrelevant, you have already achieved a state of transcendence.

It Just Is

Paradoxes can be fun. The only thing you can ever know for sure is that you can never know anything for sure.

In our human experience, each of us gathers data from which to construct our model of the universe. Most people confuse their model of the universe for the universe itself, and not merely a model. Socrates apparently understood this when he said, “I am the wisest man alive, for I know one thing, and that is that I know nothing.”

We can speak from our own perspectives and interpretations, and do so emphatically. But is Reality a one-size-fits-all proposition? Probably not. I usually don’t bother debating with anyone who gets dogmatic about a belief, although I might counter them with the question: “And what about the rest of infinity?”

Is the earth round or flat? Yes. And much more besides. We could describe the earth as a multidimensional hologram. But then, are they actually dimensions or are they density levels? Or are they simply orders of magnitude of scale within the same dimension and density level? It’s easy to come to the conclusion that nothing in this world is what it appears to be. But then, if it appears that way to us, then so it is. But then, did we factor in observer effect?

The Field of Infinite Possibilities is exactly that. The delightfully eccentric physicist Doc RAM (Dr. Richard Alan Miller) sums it up succinctly: “If it’s possible, it exists.”

42

Life, the Universe and Everything is the third book in the six volume series known as The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy. The “ultimate question” is posed: “What is the answer to life, the universe and everything?”

The supercomputer called Deep Thought calculates the answer as 42.

Even though author Douglas Adams tried to pass this off as a joke and nothing more, he was well known for his fascination with technology. Here we turn to ASCII (American Standard Code for Information Interchange). Every character on your keyboard has a numeric designation. On that official list, number 42 is the asterisk.

What is the answer to life, the universe and everything? The asterisk, the wild card that can represent anything.

Whatever.

In the early 90’s, I adopted that simple compound word to express my overarching philosophy of life, the universe and everything.

I even had a t-shirt made to display my philosophy and my fundamental approach to it: “Yeah, well…whatever.”

Full Moon in Capricorn ~ July 13, 2022

My July 2022 Forecast notes:

July 13 Full Moon in Capricorn, 2:38 p.m. Eastern time. This “Blessing Moon” closely trines the North Node in Taurus, bringing an earthy, collective benediction. Turning up the intensity, this is the second of three Supermoon’s. It loosely conjuncts the US Pluto Return. The degree of this Full Moon closely conjuncts the Saturn-Pluto Conjunction on January 12, 2020 — the signature energy of 2020. Hidden and taboo topics come to light, and we’ll feel them in a deeper, more profound way than usual. With Mercury in Cancer sextile Uranus in Taurus, we’ll find unconventional ways to discuss these insights. Venus in Gemini trine Saturn in Aquarius suggests we’re in it for the long haul, but our love, commitment and artistry might take awhile to manifest. In this case, “Delay leads to delight.”

The Full Moon occurs at 21°21′ Capricorn, so we round up to the Sabian Symbol for 22° Capricorn:

PHASE 292 (CAPRICORN 22°): BY ACCEPTING DEFEAT GRACEFULLY, A GENERAL REVEALS NOBILITY OF CHARACTER.

KEYNOTE: The realization that one may grow through defeat as well as, and perhaps more than, through success.

At this second stage we find what seems to be a paradox, but the spiritual life is always paradoxical. The great sinner can become the most renowned saint, and a medieval Pope a criminal. What matters most always is INNER STRENGTH.

On a personal note, we’re called to recognize where continuing to fight no longer serves. Humility both requires and generates great strength. Pluto only destroys that which stands in the way of relentless life force energy crashing through the status quo. At some point, we must face the inevitable: the more we resist, the greater the tsunami’s force. Once we admit our defeat, we open the door to Grace.

On a collective note, we may be called to reassess any issues that began in January 2020. COVID and all its widespread fallout come to mind. Surprising COVID information may present itself around the time of this Full Moon. Seeming “victors” may find themselves ousted by shifts in the established narrative (Mercury in Cancer opposite the Full Moon and sextile Uranus in Taurus.) The Full Moon’s Sabian Symbol suggests knowing when to cut losses, resign, or sue for peace. Again, humility both requires and generates great strength. The North Node trining this Full Moon brings support for the highest good of all — even if it doesn’t initially seem that way.

Also remember that this Full Moon arrives in context of the July 12 second exact hit of the first US Pluto Return. The stakes are high for any country undergoing its first Pluto Return. We’re talking life or death, karmic reckoning, power shifts, radical restructuring, healing crises, and/or a rebirth that regenerates a nation’s founding principles.

The Sun/Moon Midpoint at the time of this Full Moon is 21°21′ Aries, very close to the US natal Chiron. This suggests old wounds will reopen, with a chance for deeper healing. Transiting Chiron has just moved within orb of this US natal Chiron point, and is now in the same degree as the Chiron point at the time Watergate began. On June 17, 1972, a similarly hostile political climate engulfed the US, and the next two years of the Watergate scandal exposed systemic corruption, including CIA and presidential interference in an FBI investigation.

Because this Chiron Return coincides with the US Pluto Return, we can expect echoes of Watergate with even more intensity: revelations and wounds that trigger an existential crisis for the United States of America. This won’t all unfold at the time of the July 13, 2022 Full Moon, but pay attention to hidden and taboo topics that come to light. They’ll play bigger roles during the New Moon in Leo and the Mars-Uranus-North Node mega-conjunction in Taurus the final week of July. This is true both personally and collectively.

Some people say, “As the US goes, so goes the world.” That seems self-centered, but the US does affect a lot of policies, wars and opportunities around the world. Wherever you fall on the political spectrum or planet, this maelstrom stirs the collective pot. You can benefit from sudden change by positioning yourself to make quantum leaps when the chance appears. You don’t need to get sucked into a downward spiral. Chaos generates opportunity. Humility and curiosity often bring pleasant surprises and Divine Intervention. Remember: “Necessity is the mother of invention.”

Instead of clinging to something long past its prime, practice looking for silver linings and blessings in disguise. “That which you seek is also seeking you.” How much energy could you reclaim by turning with an otherwise irresistible tide?
