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!

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.”

New Moon in Gemini ~ May 30, 2022

I’m posting this one early, too, because yowza! Preparation allows us to surf these energies and even benefit from them. My May 2022 Forecast shared:

May 30 New Moon in Gemini, 7:30 a.m. Eastern US time. The Sabian Symbol for this New Moon point is AN AIRPLANE PERFORMING A NOSE DIVE. Will it be a Blue Angels show — or a crash from the air? The stakes could not be higher. Success takes boldness, but we’ll have that with a sextile from the Jupiter/Mars conjunction in fiery Aries. Meanwhile, Mercury and the North Node in Taurus square Saturn in Aquarius, urging us to negotiate what seems like an impossible situation. Suspense, action, skill. “Come fly with me, let’s fly, let’s fly, Pack up, let’s fly away!”

These energies are real nail biters, but they hold great potential for an amazing turnaround. Dane Rudhyar’s full Sabian Symbol description adds further nuance:

PHASE 70 (GEMINI 10°): AN AIRPLANE PERFORMING A NOSE DIVE.  

KEYNOTE: A superior ability to challenge nature and play with danger.

Through the controlled use of mental powers man is able to challenge the most basic force in nature: gravitation. He enjoys playing with it as a lion tamer with his violent animals. But what he challenges is within himself as well as outside. Gravitation is the universal binding force of the material world. By challenging it man prepares himself to pierce beyond the physical and to reach higher realms of existence. He may lose the struggle, but that prospect makes the effort more exciting. He might gain “immortality.”

This is the final stage of the fourteenth sequence. The symbol for it has a strong sense of finality. No possibility of half measures exist. Man is committed irrevocably to success or failure — at least as a conscious and self-reliant mind. The alternatives are clear-cut. One may describe it as MIND vs. MATTER, or as Man’s will against the fate that gravitation so aptly symbolizes.

Mercury conjunct the North Node at this time encourages on-path information and communication. Our understanding aligns with the collective destiny point, and this new worldview helps to turn the plane around. This is not a time for bravado and misplaced confidence. It’s a time to take calculated risks — recognizing the stakes and troubleshooting ahead of time. In the moment, things could happen very fast, but if we’ve practiced, imagined, and otherwise prepared ourselves in advance, this New Moon supports bold moves and quantum leaps. We can literally transcend the prior limitations of our own minds.

Mercury and the North Node in Taurus squaring Saturn in Aquarius put extra emphasis on the need for sober, practical risk assessment. This is not a time for pie in the sky “oh, it’ll all work out” thinking. It’s a time to look Truth in the face and come up with innovative solutions to a seemingly hopeless and impossible state of affairs. Only by facing hard, cold reality, can we tap into the level of inspiration and support we need. Divine help is at hand, but we aren’t inclined to receive that help if we don’t think we need it.

The saying, “There are no atheists in foxholes” tracks with this New Moon. Neptune in Pisces sextile Mercury and the North Node, and a sextile to the New Moon from Jupiter/Mars in Aries add to our capacity for faith. But we need to ground that faith in action and understanding. A true partnership with the Divine will turn the plane around. Without that alignment, the plane will probably crash. All odds point to disaster, but in those moments of greatest desperation — when we synchronize with Divine Will — miracles happen. God helps those who help themselves, and in the darkest times, God performs the greatest feats.

Prepare yourself, because now is such a time.

Addendum: I had this post already written and scheduled for 5:55 a.m. publication. It’s 2:53 a.m., and I just wrote up a dream during which I realized that this New Moon offers a chance to set intentions for later this Fall when Mars crosses that same point in Gemini.

Watch for flickers (aka previews) of issues and concerns leading up to this May 30th New Moon. These will offer hints of future trajectories, which we can shift by recognizing the signs ahead of time. Use this awareness to set intentions and create strategies for later this year and into 2023.

This can be a personal or collective process. If you have significant placements around 5-15 Gemini (plus Sagittarius, Pisces or Virgo), you’ll be most affected by the New Moon. If you have natal placements or relationship synastry around 20-29 degrees Taurus or Aquarius (plus Scorpio or Leo), you’ll be most affected by the Mercury/North Node square Saturn aspect that occurs at the time of the New Moon. With the North Node involved, everyone will be affected in some way, but people with those degrees will receive most of the “Achtung, Baby!” around the time of this New Moon.

I view this as a gift from that Jupiter/Mars sextile — a master daredevil telling you how to fly your plane. Think of it as support for pulling a Blue Angels turnaround instead of crashing and burning. Again: help is available. This is a literal “heads up” to see the amazing opportunity so you can seize it and fly high instead of crashing and burning.

Full Moon in Scorpio Total Lunar Eclipse ~ May 15-16, 2022

Since we’re already in Eclipse Season, this feels important enough to post the write-up early. I’ll re-blog it closer to the actual date.

My May 2022 Forecast notes:

May 16 Full Moon in Scorpio, Lunar Eclipse, 12:14 a.m. Eastern US time. Also known as the Flower Moon, this is a South Node Eclipse that asks us to adapt quickly to changing situations. As flowers move from bud to bloom to faded petals to seed, we, too, need to embrace ever evolving shifts. The South Node brings a karmic flavor to any collective Shadow Work. With Uranus near the Sun point, we can expect rebellious, revolutionary and liberating insights to trigger some of the karmic release.

This is a Total Lunar Eclipse, which makes it even more powerful. According to Dane Rudhyar, the Sabian Symbol for the Full Moon point is:

PHASE 236 (SCORPIO 26°): AMERICAN INDIANS MAKING CAMP AFTER MOVING INTO A NEW TERRITORY.

KEYNOTE: The ability to adjust swiftly to a new situation by tuning in to its requirements.

It brings to us a message we greatly need today — the message of peaceful adaptation to nature, and through adaptation, of EFFICIENT FUNCTIONING in all life situations.  

(You can read the full description here.)

This push to adapt occurs with Mercury Retrograde urging us to review, reevaluate, and reconsider. Just before the Full Moon, Venus conjuncts Chiron in Aries, the sign of action. The Goddess of Love invites us to heal wounds around our relationships and self-esteem. Then the powerful South Node Lunar Eclipse in deep, dark, watery Scorpio initiates a cleanse and regeneration. In orb at the time of the eclipse and most exact on May 18, Mars conjuncts Neptune in Pisces. My May Forecast explained:

May 18 Mars conjunct Neptune in Pisces. In the days preceding this date through perhaps a day or so after, sensitivity kicks up several notches. Depending on how you process Neptune energies, you might feel like a dreamy romantic or a paranoid schizophrenic. Empaths should practice extra good energy hygiene during this time. Meditation, creative projects, and beautiful lovemaking are all favored. You’ll want to protect your energy, though. Harshness, violence and warlike postures will disturb you more than usual. Lean into the dreamier, spiritual side of Neptune, instead of confusion and delusion.

Mars often acts ahead of time, so these energies may peak at the moment of eclipse. In any case, eclipse energies continue for six months, so the Mars-Neptune conjunction in watery, boundary-less Pisces colors this eclipse with the energy of high stakes spiritual and psychological warfare. It also empowers us to take action: to position ourselves to receive spiritual and emotional healing.

The potential for paranoia, confusion and delusion gets amplified by the Full Moon point closely conjuncting Ceto. This TNO (Trans Neptunian Object) signifies “the creation of monsters within us and around us: the perception of monstrous ness, the assigning of the designation of monster to what is around or within us.” Linda Lee Berry continues:

The monster is that which is extremely different. It is often tied to that which creates a feeling of fear or revulsion within us. Sometimes this is horrendous as in a Nazi Doctor. Sometimes it is just alien to regular human experience, like Spock or a dwarf. Children’s fairy tales abound with monsters for a reason. At core we fear to be rejected for our differentness, for our failure to meet the expectations of those around us and so when we are children we deny and repress that within us that is different and thus unacceptable in our world and it becomes the monster(s) within us. Only when we face and transform these monsters can we reclaim the denied aspects of ourselves and become whole. The aspects to Ceto describe our personal monsters and the monsters we meet in the world, as well as the relationship we have to monsters both within us and around us.

The sign of Scorpio deals with the Shadow — those scary, rejected parts of ourselves that we vilify in others. As dark secrets, abuse and shame erupt, we will feel tempted to point fingers, then run and hide. But we cannot continue to project the darkness outside ourselves. A complete reckoning forces us to acknowledge our own complicity in the horrors we see.

In order to survive and heal, we must recognize and reclaim responsibility. Doing so allows us to make different choices that lead to very different results. The weight of this responsibility encourages us to lean into concepts like confession, forgiveness, and Grace. “Repent” literally means “to turn,” to shift course. We can’t just mouth the words. Our actions need to change, as well.

This May 16 Full Moon Lunar Eclipse feels like a major hinge point in human evolution. In addition to the ominous Ceto, the Full Moon point auspiciously conjuncts another TNO called Deucalion — a Noah-like figure saved from a catastrophic flood. This bodes well for the rebirth and regeneration also associated with Scorpio. According to Alex Miller:

“Deucalion was a son of Prometheus, a righteous and upright man who, with his wife Pyrrha, was saved from a huge flood Zeus sent to punish and destroy mankind for its hubris and savagery. Forewarned by his father, Deucalion built a huge wooden chest to ride out the raging seas. After they receded, Deucalion made an offering to Zeus to thank him, and consulted an oracle about how to repopulate the earth. He was told to cover his head, and throw the bones of his mother behind him. Deucalion understood this to be a metaphor, and theorizing that the Earth was the mother of all, and its rocks her bones, he and Pyrrha tossed stones behind them. Those that Deucalion threw became men, and those thrown by Pyrrha became women. Deucalion is the name given to a TNO (Trans-Neptunian Object) from the Kuiper Belt region of the solar system, near Pluto.

“Astrologically, Deucalion represents being overwhelmed or ‘flooded,’ saved from disaster by seemingly divine intervention; renewal and starting over; and having advance knowledge of a difficulty or potential disaster. There can also be a strong moral code, a highly developed sense of right and wrong.”

Many cultures have similar stories of a Great Flood that wiped out much of humanity as a way to purify the Earth. At this time, we might experience the “flood” in a literal sense, but more likely as a flood of life-changing, civilization-course-correcting information. Saturn (aka Father Time and Lord of Karma) squares the Sun-Moon axis from Aquarius, adding to the sense of morality. Saturn tells us to get our affairs in order and take a stand. He pressures us to get things right.

As Above, So Below. As Within, So Without.

I’ll leave you with a potent dream I had the morning after this post flowed out of me. It feels both personal and collective — like I continued processing the Full Moon in Scorpio Total Lunar Eclipse as I slept:

5/6/2022
“Woman in a Black Dress”

A vivid fragment, seen from behind: a woman in a long, black dress walking a path with steep drops on either side. The scenery was stark, but stunning. She wore a wide-brimmed black wool hat like I wore at my father’s funeral. She made her way — step by slow, careful step — along a narrow, natural bridge between two realities.

END of dream journal.

New Moon in Taurus Solar Eclipse ~ April 30, 2022

My April 2022 Forecast notes:

April 30 New Moon in Taurus Solar Eclipse 4:28 p.m. Eastern US time. This is a North Node eclipse, sextile Mars in Pisces and loosely conjunct revolutionary Uranus in Taurus. It’s also the traditional celebration of Beltane Eve. Venus (the Love Goddess and ruler of Taurus) also conjuncts Jupiter in Pisces, expanding the earthy, sensual connection of Beltane. Known as a Black Moon, the second New Moon in a month brings extra potent, magical energy. In the sign of the North Node on a day of very thin veils, this powerful Solar Eclipse points to our highest collective destiny and reminds us of the almost unbelievable — yet real and grounded — transforming Power of Love.

This potent eclipse occurs one day after Mercury enters his home sign of Gemini and Pluto stations retrograde in Capricorn. Lots of shifting energies! Beltane marks one of four crossquarter days when trooping faeries are said to change homes. Pluto rules the Underworld, where many faeries live in an alternate dimension, while Mercury aids communication of all sorts — including across the veils. During a Solar Eclipse on a day of already very permeable boundaries, we can expect spontaneous downloads and deep insights. Taurus expresses through sensuality and the physical realm, but these Mercury and Pluto transits encourage deeper messages to arise through touch.

The North Node tells us such messages will point in the direction of our collective destiny, and Uranus offers liberation. All this, surrounded by an air of beauty, grace, and abundance, courtesy of the Venus-Jupiter conjunction. A truly yummy, magical day!

But wait, there’s more ….

This New Moon in Taurus Solar Eclipse conjuncts Albion. Originally known as QB1, it was the very first TNO (Trans Neptunian Object) found after Pluto. Discovered in 1992, QB1 proved a theory that our solar system extends far beyond lonely Pluto. According to Benjamin Adamah:

The astrological meaning of asteroid 15760 Albion (1992 QB1): emancipation, building bridges between social groups or different times, forming substantial new connections which catalyse major Zeitgeist-changes

In 2018 it was renamed Albion after William Blake’s version of the mythical Adam Kadmon. In the creation mythology of Blake (1757-1827), Albion is the island-dwelling primordial man who divided himself into the four Zoas (Urthona, Urizen, Luvah and Tharmas), each representing important aspects of human character.

William Blake was a poet, artist and mystic. In some ways, his work epitomizes the permeable energies of this Solar Eclipse. The image above reminds me of fire purification from traditional Beltane ceremonies. It also evokes a more jubilant version of Leonardo da Vinci’s Vitruvian Man:

Vitruvian Man by Leonardo da Vinci

Blake combined art and poetry, while da Vinci integrated art and science. Both men tapped into a rare — yet somehow accessible — Genius. They reached beyond the norms of their day and brought new visions and ideas to life.

This New Moon Solar Eclipse conjunct Albion supercharges our ability to stretch beyond known limits — to expand our experience of reality by interfacing with new worlds at the edge of our fingertips, toes and all our senses. To me, this speaks to an important opportunity for human evolution. It’s not our only chance, but the sign of Taurus increases our ability to ground lightning bolts of inspiration into tangible form and function.

If this post seems abstract, drop into your body and feel what this Cosmic Conjunction holds for you. Taurus knows we can learn in many ways beyond our intellect. This potent New Moon in Taurus invites us to align with Nature, get grounded and revel in our activation. I’ll leave you with the Sabian Symbol for this Solar Eclipse, PHASE 41 (TAURUS 11°): A WOMAN WATERING FLOWERS IN HER GARDEN.

In a synchro whammy, highly charged, Cosmic Costume Designer way, the spontaneous reappearance of this 2012 photo on David’s new iPhone led me to discover and receive the dress below.:

Some people claim it’s Saturn, but I see a spaceship beaming across the starry multiverse. Sometimes “A WOMAN WATERING FLOWERS IN HER GARDEN” leads to a vast and different realm. This powerful Eclipse may be one such time.

Happy Earth Day!

Dear Mama Earth,

Happy Earth Day!

In honor of you, I was going to write a long blog post calling for actual detoxifying, beautifying and protective solutions — not just green-washing of other agendas in the name of “sustainability.” Then I realized I painted a portal for that very thing, way back in February 2014. I’ve already reblogged it, so I’ll just link to it again here. Sorry it’s taking so long to fully unfold. May it become so!

With so much love and gratitude,

Laura

I’ve been posting and reposting Joanna Macy’s version of this story for nearly a decade. It feels especially relevant right now:

A Potent Dream: “My Brother, the Artist”

This feels like a collective dream — like “my brother” represents much of humanity right now. Immediately after writing down the dream, I logged onto my blog and wrote the March 2, 2022 ~ New Moon in Pisces post. Since the dream feels related to today’s New Moon, I’ll share it here on the actual New Moon day. I’ve left this unedited, so please excuse the transcribed dream dialog, where I drop the f-bomb. The dream feels cinematic and potent. I didn’t want to diminish its power by altering the words. If this offends you, please feel free to skip this post. 🙂

“My Brother, the Artist”

Awoke from a dream that seems important enough to get up and write it down. I was one of several children — three or four — of a larger than life mother who seemed to work in the fashion industry.

We were all grown children, but maybe just in our 20’s and early 30’s. The mom was a little like Maye Musk (Elon Musk’s mom), but not quite her. She was pushy. There was some kind of convention going on in what seemed like a really high end department store — maybe Neiman Marcus, or maybe it was an actual convention. There’s more to this part that I don’t quite recall.

The woman/mom had a lot of authority and perks. She gave each of us a credit card sized card — some kind of pass, and we could use this to leave the convention. We needed to hold it up high enough that the guards could see it as we walked out. They might still stop us, but if we dropped her name, it should be alright. Then they tightened security, so we actually needed her with us in order to leave.

One of my brothers looked like Chris Hemsworth (Thor) or his brother (who looks similar but not quite so beefy). The mom kept handing us different things to carry in flamboyant ways. One was a bouquet of hot pink feathers made to look like flowers. This is the only one I remember, but there were more.

The ceilings were really high, and there were glass escalators and wide open space with glass walls looking outside. I went to a mall kind of like this and can’t recall where it was. I think it was in Chicago. Marshall Field Building? I don’t think it has stores anymore, but at one time it looked impressive.

In the dream, there was all this posh stuff, but it felt like a prison because of the guards and because we couldn’t leave without the cards and then, without our overbearing mother. My brother (Chris Hemsworth) started having a nervous breakdown. He said, “I can’t do this anymore” and tried to walk out. This made a scene because the guards wouldn’t let him leave. He didn’t even bother to flash the card. When they asked for it, he said, “I’m out of here” and had a determined, but unaware air about him.

Our mom realized this would cause a huge scene and create stigma for her, so she gathered all of us and said, “Get out your cards. We’re leaving.”

We got them out and lifted them up, but the guards wouldn’t let us leave without first talking to the mom. She convinced them to open the doors and let us out, and this brother ran to the middle of the parking lot, then home. I sensed he was one step away from being institutionalized, that I had one chance to save him from this fate.

When I got to his apartment, he was sitting on a large chair, kind of rocking in fetal position. He didn’t look up when I said his name, but we had had a close relationship all our lives. I knew he was really an artist and that’s why this fake world was so toxic to him.

I said in a very cheery voice, “You did it! You never need to go to that fucking place again. You’re probably banned for life. You did it! You’re free. Now you get to paint.”

He still didn’t respond, so I took one hand and arm and kind of wedged it between his armpit/arm curled around his legs. I shimmied one arm there and the other under his opposite knee, and I gave him a ridiculous hug. I started crying, empathing with him and trying to set a tone where he could have an emotional release. He was so checked out, just numb.

I hugged him tight and said again, “You did it. You never have to go to that fucking place again. You’re free.” That fucking place meant Northwestern University and academia. “They’ll never let you in again, and that’s a good thing. You can paint now.” I mentally sent him telepathic images of his artwork — past and future. He didn’t overtly respond, but I felt him engage a little when he saw the future paintings.

I continued to hug him and rocked with him as I said, “I’m proud of you. So proud of you because you did it. None of us wants to be in that prison. That fucking place is insane. You’re the sane one. You! You’re the sane one. Don’t ever let them tell you otherwise.”

I knew I needed to get him to paint again. If he was at work on a masterpiece when the people came to his place, instead of sitting in fetal position on a chair and rocking himself with vacant eyes — if he was engaged as an artist, I could keep the doctors at bay. If they saw him like this, in the chair, they would lock him up for the rest of his life. I wouldn’t be able to save him, and they would medicate him so far that he would never be able to find himself.

I knew all this but knew I couldn’t alarm him. The key was for him to realize he was an artist — that this was the reason he couldn’t play the game anymore. This was why he walked out — not because he was insane. An inspired artist has leeway. If he was hard at work when they got here, I could explain that he had had a sudden inspiration — “You know how artists are” — and that his abrupt leave taking was inspired, not crazy. Also that they needed to go, to stop interrupting him.

I wanted him to be painting like a mad artist when they arrived to take him away. Over and over I kept telling him from my heart, “I’m proud of you. So proud of you for walking away. You never need to go to that fucking place again. I love you. I’m so proud of you for leaving.”

As I said these things, I kept sending telepathic visions of his future paintings. At some point, he turned his head and looked at me. I said, “You have it all. The looks, the body. Oh, that probably sounds weird given that you’re my brother, but seriously, you’ve got it. Besides the talent — which you have in spades — you’ve got ‘it.’ You’re the real deal. You can do this.”

He looked at me again and asked, “Really?” He smiled through tears and looked a little dazed, but on the wonder side of dazed instead of the ashamed and overwhelmed side.

“Yes,” I said, “Yes.”

He hugged me back, and I knew that he would paint again. He was already a great artist, but now I knew that he would fulfill that calling. By the time the would-be institutionalizers arrived, he was hard at work on a giant mural. I shooed them away and said, “Get out of here. Leave. You can’t disrupt his genius. Can’t you see he’s painting?! Artists need to take their inspiration as it comes. Get out of here. Stop trying to interrupt his work.”

I knew my brother and I would live happily ever after because he would keep painting murals, and I could live with him away from our awful mother. She would never find us here. She didn’t even know where it was, and she couldn’t get here. We were free.

END of dream journal.

I shared this dream with a friend who commented on its cinematic qualities. I replied:

Yes, I also think it speaks to humanity in general. The people trying to foment world war are unable to create such things without a collective reality buy-in. Narrative is VERY powerful. Imagination is powerful. When enough people walk away from the crazy, reality will tip to something more beautiful and creative. I feel we are on the cusp of that. 

If you haven’t read the March 2 ~ New Moon in Pisces post, it flowed through me in one fast burst after I recorded this dream. You can read it here.
