Tom Lescher ~ Astrology Forecast April 30-May 6, 2014

This Pele Report explains some of what I’ve been hearing from friends and clients about the recent energy of “hurry up and wait.” If you’re raring to go but inexplicably spinning your wheels, it really could be the larger energies — not simply your own internal resistance. I suggest using the time delay to increase inner clarity while balancing the highest good of all involved.

Kaypacha advises to “Speak your truth and assert yourself, but in a loving way. … Talk about your feelings” [as opposed to a rigid judgment structure].

This time period emphasizes “accepting other people’s values. This is the Eighth House. I can be different than you. You can need, or want or value different things than me, and it doesn’t need to be the end. … We can respect each other as different, diverse human beings. I don’t need you to become like me, and I’m not going to become like you.” We can still have a relationship, though.

Boy, am I finding this last one play out in my personal life as I try to accept that the enormous and vocal majority of locals I encounter — even when shown the corporate tentacles and manipulative, oppressive strings attached to various grants and initiatives — become even more determined to turn a blind eye (clamped shut and triple blindfolded if need be) and just take the money, regardless of eventual consequences. I have yet to find anyone who cares enough to scratch below the next meal, next grant or next year … and I find myself in an area with enormous potential to avoid so many of the pitfalls I’ve seen elsewhere — not just accidentally hitting a pothole, but actively inviting in and celebrating eventual sinkholes. I can help people strategize ways to avoid such things, but not when everyone asserts that they believe potholes and their eventual sinkholes are wonderful things.

So yes, Kaypacha, I’ve been feeling the “accepting others’ values” aspect in a very poignant way.

Last night, David and I attended a poetry reading by a childhood friend of his, Julia Kasdorf, and she read from her latest “documentary poetry” collection (not yet released), which focuses on complex issues of fracking in Pennsylvania. She has interviewed and eavesdropped on hundreds of people and interweaves the communities’ practical support for fracking with images of burning wells, unrelenting noise, landscape devastation, and economic exploitation. That same sense of extreme poverty celebrating whatever helps put food on the table now pervades her delicate and bittersweet observations about long term consequences and the history of Penn’s Woods. Having grown up in PA, the poems hit home even more personally than the Beehive Design Collective‘s visual work. Global corporatism and control are marching everywhere — in Mesoamerica, in Goshen, in Pennsylvania — and despite the few resisters, many, many, many people continue to dance and beat the drums of “progress.”

Thank you, Kaypacha, for putting things into their larger astrological context. For some of you, it may be time to surrender and release. For me, it’s time to garden and break out Joanna Macy’s “Active Hope” again, too. Sober Beltane Blessings, as we find ways to celebrate what we can, even as others celebrate the very things that break our hearts ….

After the cloudburst and torrential rain,
The clouds disperse and the Sun shines again,
The rivers rise up and flow to the sea,
The more I let go, the more I am free.
Open up and let the sun shine in after the big cloudburst of thes last few weeks….. We can figure that May will be somewhat less frustrating but now it can be like cleaning up after a wild party the night before….. Mercury opp Saturn this Friday is pretty sober so keep the chin up… it will be worth it! Artwork from the last Pele Report by Fulya Kurter and music this week by: https:soundcloud.com\lucere

Tom Lescher/Kaypacha ~ Astrology forecast for November 13, 2013

Another right on Pele Report! I love how synchronized so many things have obviously become. He even mentions bees. 🙂 I’m definitely feeling that Pluto energy these days — very deep, root changes, moving at a slower pace than this Gemini usually likes. Somehow, it all gets done, and for these kinds of deep changes, you really can’t rush them. Tom emphasizes the big decisions about: money, commitments, time, and contracts. Let go. “Bring through the Spirit, and unite the Spirit with Matter.” His comments about all the hooks and “what is stopping me?” also remind me of this potent article by Soren Dreier.

“Like an insect trapped in a spider’s web
I only have so much time.
The value and meaning of my life,
Death urges me to find.

“You don’t know what you can do until you do it. You don’t know how much you can give until you give it. The list goes on and on. This full Moon coming up in Taurus will give us all a chance to see just how great we are by opening, surrendering, giving, and receiving on and from the deepest places in ourselves. The stakes are high and the rewards can be great….. I remember an old boss of mine once said, “We are going to spend a lot of money, and we are going to make a lot of money.” This is a time to place as much of yourself as you dare into the game of Life on Earth. Don’t hold back and if you are others will help you discover why haha!”

Doreen Virtue ~ Weekly Oracle Card Reading June 17-23

Oh, my goodness! This week’s Oracle Card Reading by Doreen Virtue is so right on for all the sessions I’ve been doing lately, especially with my June Shadow Work Tarot Special. Even recent Medical Intuitive sessions have mainly been about releasing guilt, shame and trauma from the past — for good. Wishing everyone huge blessings as you move through the energies into a stronger, more loving relationship with yourself!

Letting Go

Just for today, can you let go of one thing that feels too old, too tight, too restrictive and/or too dull for the “you” you are becoming? It can be anything, large or small, real or symbolic. Just for today, see if you can surrender something you don’t want anyway. Letting go encourages flow: relinquish to receive.

“We must let go of the life we have planned, so as to accept the one that is waiting for us.” ~Joseph Campbell

That is all for today, and it is enough.
