Pluto in Leo

Today we have a special guest blog post by Chicago-based Astrologer/Acupuncturist Dean Scarpinato. Today’s post carries a special message for those born between 1939 through 1957, when Pluto was in Leo; however, Dean includes many relevant details for all of us, as he explains the characteristics of Pluto itself.

Right now, Pluto’s in Capricorn, a placement that emphasizes rooting out any and all hidden deeds, secrets and abuses. One need only turn on the news, Facebook, glance at magazines on a grocery store rack, or live in one of the many areas with uprisings, to note that things are turning inside out and upside down. Actually, I would argue, at long last, that things are turning right side out and right side up! In any case, I loved Dean’s information-packed and thought-provoking Facebook Note so much that I asked if he would allow me to publish it on my blog. Many thanks, and I hope you find as much value in this as I do! Dean’s note begins here:

Pluto in Leo represents a generational trend. It is what we call an “outer planet” like Neptune and Uranus and it represents karmic tides washing over mankind and moving us ahead in our evolutionary path. These evolutionary changes are also played out within the individual as we grow or fail to grow along with the currents. We are different today than we were in 1945. And an individual with Pluto in Leo will experience and express this energy differently than one with Pluto in Cancer or Virgo.

Pluto is also known as the Dark Lord Hades. He is the brother of Jupiter and the ruler of the underworld. Perhaps he is best known for his dark dalliance with Persephone whom he kidnapped from a field of narcissus and whisked away on his invisible steed to his underworld dungeon.

Pluto represents the darker aspects of sex, the lust for power, and the darkest longings thereof. As sex is the doorway into this incarnation and death is the doorway out they represent two sides of the same coin, and Pluto represents each. Many times sex and death are interlinked in the darker fantasies of sadomasochism as well as those fantasies spun out of control into crimes. There is incredible power, attraction and fear in both subjects. Even the mention of sex brings a reaction of some sort when we read it.

It has the power to control, at least momentarily all of our human actions and thought forms. Many mystics and monks devote their whole life to breaking its grip, usually to find it forcing expression through some other more perverse form while madmen give in totally to its control becoming in many cases offenders or creeps. Those of a Taoist perspective recognize its power and force and seek to recirculate its jing through the Acupuncture Meridians that they may harness its strength and save their glands from constantly needing to replenish themselves.

That is the power of Pluto. It is all encompassing, obsessive and overwhelming. The dark magician, and the sexual magician crave this power like a drug while the unwitting addict is simply consumed.

Pluto is power achieved by ill-gotten means, the mafia chief, the politician, the Plutocrat. Pluto is the hypnotic spell of unreality cast over “reality” in Plato’s Cave or the Matrix. And Pluto goes to the deepest recesses of the bowels of the situation to bring all that is hidden into the light of day. Today in Capricorn it is exposing the sickness of autocratic society and the perverse evil that is the capitalist system. The system seems completely intent upon showing its hidden hand and while a large number of people resort to plugging their ears, closing their eyes, clicking their ruby slippers and repeating “This isn’t happening, this isn’t happening,” it is. And Pluto has about 15 years to shake the system to its physical and emotional limit before even considering the grand climax, the final surrender.

Pluto is the Matrix; Plato’s Cave. How much do we go along with an obvious illusion before we have the courage to stand up for what is real? And then how do we know that it is not just another more clever illusion? And if all the so-called “sane” people are truly trapped in what we now recognize to be illusion, what does that say of the “madman?” We all know that there is a fine line between genius and madness. Is it the same fine line that exists between eccentricity and insanity? Money and social position?

A megalomaniac schizophrenic with delusions of grandeur sends 18 year old children out to butcher innocent people in horrible ways to instill upon the earth his vision of reality. Is that not by definition evil? Well I guess that depends on whether you are Nixon or Manson. Now imagine that you are a god with infinitely more perspective and a little too slick to be wrapped in the American Flag by the likes of Right Wing Conservatives. You’ve seen empires come and go and you recognize the corruption inherent in each. Now tell me: Do you stand and salute the American Flag Oh Great God Zeus or do you revile these mortals? That is a question you can be expected to answer when you come to the gates of Hades.

OK what does this mean to you? When we say that Pluto is in Leo it means that the energies and characteristics of Pluto merge and transform (especially with Pluto which is by definition transformation) with the energies and characteristics of Leo. Pluto was in Leo from 1939 through 1957, the age of Plutonium where the atomic bomb lit the earth like the sun (Leo). Science could become the bringer of life for all the world, like the Sun. No more hunger, no more war. A world built on cooperation and mutual benefit. Or it could choose the path of plutocracy, concentrating the power and wealth and resources in the hands of a very few very insane white men, most if not all, Zionist Bankers.

We could do, as Pluto or Hades would like and lord the nuclear potential over all the people of earth, steal the resources, rape the women and plunge societies into starvation by cutting them off of their own land and water rights. We could use the dark power of the god of Hades (Hell) to allow people known to be members of Skull and Bones or the “Brotherhood of Death” most notably perhaps one George HW Bush whose Bonesman name is “Magog” to covertly run drugs and make trillions off of wars and rumors of war plunging the world, into hell, the kingdom of Lucifer and thus fulfilling the role of the Biblical Magog.

Or we could recognize that we are all one under the Sun and create a world in which we shared the resources and guarded each others dignity and encouraged each others creativity. We could. But nobody believes it and even if they do they’re too busy working for Mammon, shoveling coal into the furnaces of hell, praying for the time they can punch out, all the while producing huge profits for someone else while owing their soul to the company sto’. Wage slaves they’re called.

On a personal level every one of us has to decide which reality we want and live it. To the degree that we live up to our own expectations without arbitrary bullshit from outside sources we are happy. To the degree that we stifle our true desires and contort ourselves to conform to some external expectations we are miserable.

And so to a major degree this is the question your generation had to answer as you guys ushered in the ’60’s. Be-in’s and Love In’s and crash pads incense and power to the people. But all that “We should be together” hype broke down right quick into prima donna, diva star trips. And so the hippies are a farce even though the essence of what was prophesized is valid and needs to save the day here and now. But all those self indulgent rock stars bought into their own hype as Leo is wont to do, especially when Pluto is there to make the point.

So on a personal level is it all about you or can you be part of a new paradigm? Pluto in Leo will ask you this every day in every way in disguises that just leave you shaking your head wondering WTF? But it’s all about how much of your work and creativity is for your own self aggrandizement. It’s a slippery slope here because no one is saying you shouldn’t be proud or honored for your achievements. I certainly am not. Nor am I trying to tell you what to do with your money.

I am saying that the Sun can bring life and nurture and warmth and joy to all. Pluto in Leo as a generation believed in a better world where every person had their basic needs met and fear was wiped away. It is possible. If there is such a thing as heaven this is it. If one believes in Christ and utters the Lord’s Prayer “Thy Will be done on Earth as it is in Heaven,” then one has a responsibility to try to create that or they have no business calling themselves Christians.

Well what is your vision of heaven? And how are you making it manifest on Earth? And how much of what you’re keeping for yourself involves rationalization and cop-out? And how are you prepared to change and move more into the direction of a true warrior of peace? This is enough to last an entire life time and it will. Pluto will see to it. And it is a test you will pass one day, one lifetime so from the logical cosmic perspective of the mystic, the time to really start (clearly you’ve been working on this for many lifetimes) but the time to start with all your conscious faculties is NOW.

“I can’t I’ve got deeds to do and promises to keep,” isn’t gonna cut it. You know it and so do I. Pluto is where you will ultimately answer to yourself. And it will never stop bugging you, even in your sleep. That’s his job. To take you through hell until you can’t take any more and you finally say “Show me another way!” That’s the day you get your wings. Learning to use them is quite a process.

Ocean’s Eleven-Eleven: You’re Invited

This blog post arrives in response to a Facebook post in which I wondered what would happen if Lightworkers around the world joined energies and intentions into an astrologically well-timed shamanic ritual to help heal the Earth and redistribute resources, power and money into responsible, loving hands. Those who run the world (not just the BigBanks, BigPharma and BigAg, but the people behind the corporate machines) all use astrology, occult symbols, and rituals as a means of honing and amplifying their own power. Esoteric Agenda does a nice job of explaining this, in case you’re curious.

Regardless of your curiosity, a bit of research would reveal that the ruling elite declare wars, pass extreme laws, and activite terrorist attacks and “natural” disasters on key dates. Repeated number sequences like 3/11/11, 4/11/11, 9/11, 7/7, 777, and 888 are all over the place! As someone who has long studied mythology, paganism, astrology, Christianity, numbers, sacred geometry, Runes, occult (which simply means hidden) symbols and rituals, these patterns read like an organized code. Events in this world, especially events since 9/11/01 have not occurred randomly. They fit neatly into key astrological dates that correspond to the goals of those orchestrating the events.

Those running our world have kept much of the esoteric knowledge for themselves, demonizing it via religions and mocking it via science. Thankfully, intuition and indigenous awareness can’t be completely snuffed out. They have survived in fairy tales, ancient writings, myths, and art history. This wisdom and awareness are also keyed into most of the major world religions, if we explore them with the eyes and heart of a mystic.

So, what the heck is Ocean’s Eleven-Eleven, and why are you invited?

I came up with the idea right after the “historic” budget passed in Congress. What’s historic about heisting more money from the middle class, destroying EPA regulations, preserving corporate money and the military-industrial complex? Um, not much! Business as usual among BigBanks and the corporation known as the UNITED STATES GOVERNMENT. (Yes, not only are corporations now considered “persons,” but our “country” is not really a government, but rather a corporation. It’s the reason all the Birther arguments about Obama’s citizenship may not actually matter. While it would be illegal for a non-citizen to be president of the country, being president of the corporation is perfectly legal. All this quibbling really distracts from the deeper issue plaguing America and most of the rest of the world — the systematic transfer of all wealth, power and resources from sovereign individuals into the hands of a few. Indeed, as former Minnesota Governor Jesse Ventura reveals, feudalism is very much alive in 2011.) As Michael Moore reminded the world when he came to speak in Madison, “America is not broke!”

But it might as well be.

My Facebook post began as a wondering of what would happen if Lightworkers used similar esoteric awareness, rituals and intention to rebalance the budget, and restore balance to humanity and planet Earth. To my great delight, lots of people expressed enthusiastic support. I contacted some astrologers to help pick out dates most conducive to these goals, and I asked people of various spiritual and healing traditions about what sorts of ceremonies, spells, mantras and energy would most serve the rebalancing and restorative efforts. Common themes included: offering everything for the Highest Good of All, shamanic healing of core issues, and honoring free will (i.e. we can offer the energy and intentions for healing, but individuals can bypass them if they so choose). Many people also want to include Mother Earth in this process — especially since she is already intimately involved.

I chose the name Ocean’s Eleven-Eleven as a reference to the movie Ocean’s Eleven, which involves a group of highly specialized criminals working together behind the scenes to rob a corrupt casino. I love the idea of each participant in Ocean’s Eleven-Eleven offering whatever skills, energy, gifts, love and knowledge he or she happens to have –all in an attempt to redistribute wealth and power from the robber barons. 11:11 is a potent manifestation gateway, and I also like the reference to the ocean, which has been so abused by Japan’s nuclear crisis and the BP oil “spill.”

[Just an FYI, both of these events were also orchestrated. If you doubt this fact, please do some research on insider trading before the “spill,” Halliburton’s acquisition of the cleanup company 8 days before the “spill,” HAARP, and meetings and phone calls in Japan on 3/9/11. Even though a very small population on this planet has actively abused the Earth, to the degree we have allowed this to happen, we are all culpable. For this reason, I would like to include Dr. Emoto’s healing prayer for the waters at the reactors of Fukushima, but branch this out to ALL water on planet Earth: “Oceans of the Earth, we are sorry to make you suffer. Please forgive us. We thank you, and we love you.”]

Anyway, back to Ocean’s Eleven-Eleven: there is great power in names. Including the ocean and 11:11 in the name of this group acknowledges both the vastness of issues and the potential manifestation/transmutation beyond them. I also love the following quote by the mystic poet, Kabir: “All know that the drop merges into the ocean, but few know that the ocean merges into the drop.” A recognition of the interconnectedness and paradox of all things will allow humanity to transcend a seemingly impossible situation on this planet. Ocean’s Eleven-Eleven honors and celebrates this Ascension.

I will write more on this topic closer to the time, but for now, I wanted to let people know that the dates so far selected are Beltane (May 1, 2011) and the Solar Eclipse date of June 15, 2011. “In Neopaganism, Bealtaine is considered a cross-quarter day, marking the midpoint in the Sun’s progress between the spring equinox and summer solstice. … In Gaelic folkore, the village’s cattle were driven between two fires to purify them and bring luck (Eadar dà theine Bhealltainn in Scottish Gaelic, ‘Between two fires of Beltane’). This term is also found in Irish and is used as a turn of phrase to describe a situation which is difficult to escape from. In Scotland, boughs of juniper were sometimes thrown on the fires to add an additional element of purification and blessing to the smoke. People would also pass between the two fires to purify themselves.”

You can find more info here and in future posts. I love the idea of Beltane as the initiation of Ocean’s Eleven-Eleven, because it involves purification. Our world is so far out of balance that we need something beyond a complete reversal of stolen resources, money and power. In a very real sense, humanity has given these things away — allowed them to be stolen, even invited the thievery, due to deep-seated shame, fear and a loss of self-respect. The initial collective cereomonies, energy offerings and rituals will focus on healing these aspects.

I invite people from around the world to spend some time in the coming weeks considering what you feel called to offer on May 1’s virtual Beltane gathering. If you know shamanic or religious rituals designed to clear any or all of these feelings, please consider how and where you might enact those. If you feel more comfortable creating a work of art, song, poem, portal, or spell, please feel free. If you would like to light a candle or recite a mantra or send Reiki, these are all good contributions. In essence, the Ocean’s Eleven-Eleven festivities on Beltane will be an organized free-for-all with a collective intention of purification, healing and preparing to receive.

On June 15, during the solar eclipse, we will have another day of worldwide intention, creation and space-holding. More details on that to follow. Please feel free to share your ideas here or on your own blogs, linking in to this page if you’d like. You are welcome to include links to your own posts about this event. I never meant to lead a movement, and I really don’t care who gets “credit” or publicity. Another agreement on the Facebook thread involved the idea that those who resonate with this sort of event will find it. If I have time I will make a YouTube video with some ideas, and I will also post some possibilities for specific ceremonies, spells and/or prayers. Any religious or spiritual background is welcome.

I only ask that everyone who participates does so from a place of real excitement, love and enthusiasm, and that participants act from a place of Love and Light and for the Highest Good of All. As much as those in power have run amok, we do not need to emulate their motivations and attitudes. The tools are neutral: you can use a hammer to build a house or to bash someone’s head in. If you know how to use esoteric tools or spells, please feel free to walk the Middle Way (embracing your power, but remaining in the Light while doing so). If you feel more comfortable with prayer or meditation, we welcome your energy as well. The more the merrier. Literally! Let’s make this one fiery, joyful Beltane and a beautiful worldwide unified offering of possibilities. Shift happens. Woohoo and Namaste.

DNA, Electromagnetism, Sacred Sound and Evolution

I cannot recommend this film highly enough! It summarizes and distills so much of my own intuitions, visions and research regarding Human Evolution, Myth, Chanting, Ancient Languages, DNA, Earth Changes, Freedom and Responsibility. One of the most informative hour and twenty minutes I’ve seen in a long, long time:

Uranus Enters Aries

During this highly volatile week on planet Earth, I asked Astrologer Electra Jung for permission to republish another one of her insightful and inspiring newsletters. I’ve written and intuited much about larger patterns regarding Earth Changes, Dietary Shifts, Madison, and Law of Attraction, and I am a bit of an armchair astrolger; I tend to get the feeling of shifts before they happen. But I am the first to admit that I’m no expert in the math and other calculations of the stars. Electra explains many of the energies taking place on this planet and in this galaxy.

I do not consider astrology as Destiny. We live on a free will planet, but the stars, sun, moon and planets do exert energies. Awareness of current and coming influences allows us to surf these energies instead of drowning in them. When intense times surge, astrology becomes yet another tool to help navigate troubled waters. As my long time readers, clients and students know, I love, love, love tools! Blessings and much love to all. Electra’s newsletter follows:

Uranus Enters 0 degrees of Aries

Friday March 11, 2011

With the entrance of upsetting and revolutionary Uranus into 0 degrees Aries today we have seen the upheaval all week/month as the planet prepares for Earth Changes. It brings the attention toward a more spiritual direction as the consuming welfare of others overcomes the trivia of our daily lives.

Uranus enters 0 degrees Aries today…earthquakes, volcanoes…The frequency of Life on Earth has accelerated through outer-planet transits such as this one and there is more to come…we have incarnated at this time to witness these Earth Changes.

A Super Moon is expected on March 19th when the moon will be at perigee (its closest position in its orbit to Earth). This will be the closest perigee in 18 years. There are claims which say such events are related to catastrophes like extreme seismic events or extreme weather:

“The last extreme super moon occurred was on January 10th, 2005, right around the time of the 9.0 Indonesia earthquakes”. AccuWeather member Daniel Vogler

These changes are always in effect when a Super New Moon is preceded by intense solar activity:

A coronal mass ejection (CME) hit Earth’s magnetic field on March 10th. The impact set off a G1-class geomagnetic storm and sent Northern Lights rippling over the US-Canadian border into states such as Wisconsin , Minnesota , and Michigan . This is another sign that Solar Cycle 24 is heating up. Check http://spaceweather.com

The entrance of Uranus from the Karmic/critical 29 degrees of Pisces indicates the end of the seemingly peaceful, delusional cycle we have experienced during the changes of the last 7 years. Today as Uranus enters the powerful Solstice degree we will see everything accelerate…we will collectively discover our character and humanity as we face these horrific changes and continuing crises. Death and transformation are challenges to be deeply and personally ingrained into our psyche as we on this North American continent continue to remain safe and un-disturbed…for the moment.

This Uranus shift into a new sign has been preceded by some of the most devastating and disturbing events we have experienced globally in many years. The recent revolutionary activity in the Middle East , volcanic eruptions and continuing earthquakes have been predicted…even expected. The continuing effects of today’s 8.9 Magnitude Earthquake in Japan triggers a 30-Foot Tsunami. We are affected physically, emotionally and spiritually. What is coming next?

The months ahead show where new knowledge and unity are to be experienced. Uranus is the higher octave planet of Mercury. Mercury is intellect and Uranus is intuition. Uranus rules the lightening fast thought processes and extreme intuition…and rules the healing power of Spirit. This is the Aquarian Age and everything has stepped up at an incredible vibratory rate. Earth Changes include changes in ourselves and a return to the lasting and enduring spiritual and humanitarian values.

The energetic quality of Uranus is the unpredictable events which occur when this unusual planet is operating. The entrance into confrontational Aries represents the point of all beginnings…a new era of initiating projects with courage and leadership. At this time the global initiative shows mass awakening and war efforts to control the liberating effect this awakening has on the masses…as though there were something to fear when real facts are demanded and understood by the “people.”

This was exemplified back in May at a Council on Foreign Relations meeting in Montreal , when co-founder with David Rockefeller of the Trilateral Commission Zbigniew Brzezinski warned that a “global political awakening,” in combination with infighting amongst the elite, was threatening to derail the move towards a one world government.

The requirements now are for careful observation of your own re-actions toward change and conflict in your daily life. This difficult time is enhanced by negative thinking and argumentative words after frustrating delays and setbacks. During rapid vibrational frequencies we experience constant and non-stop activities which require focus and attention while there is lack of deep sleep, hydration and proper nutrition. Without “time-outs” and rest periods we have burn-out and overwhelm.

Self-reflection and self-examination will provide the necessary information for creating the change within you. The experiences now are very real and only the beginning of what you will need to prepare for physically and emotionally…begin now to heal your own thinking with words and phrases of calm, confidence and healing strength. The events occurring in your life now can be so demanding that you tire out long before anything is accomplished. You may be experiencing energy going in every direction which leads to tension and headaches.

Remember:

As this fiery, Uranian energy blasts through the collective consciousness, the values of people will be changed and elevated in an instant. The lust for the trivial will be transmuted into the yearning for spiritual and metaphysical talents. Materialism will be replaced by spiritualism. By Guy Allaire

Wherever Aries is placed in your horoscope is where you as Spirit begin to operate. Aries rules the Divine Spark into manifestation…this means all which happens now is a result of not only your own thinking but also provides incredible creativity to solve and resolve ongoing issues. During chaos all things disappear and re-appear until the personality and Ego are forced to take a back seat. Aries the ram on the objective level is the Lamb of God at its highest aspect. This means the value of submissiveness and non-resistance are the highest quality of daily activity. This means it is easier to be receptive rather than assertive…to release yourself from trauma and struggle through surrender of the will.

As this planetary evolution continues we will find ourselves also going through our own change and transitions. The saying goes -As above so below…as without, so within.

Always Loving Life,

Electra
