Humans and societies function within cycles that are mirrored in the sky by the locations of the planets and the Moon going around the Sun. Just as it is possible to consider the basic personalities of the people invited to a party and predict what kind of party might result, it is possible to use planetary analysis to anticipate the qualities of the human social field on Earth during a given period of time. Astrology can predict how individuals might be feeling, just by knowing the archetypal influence of each planet plus the Moon. Just like a wild rock-n-roll dance party is very different from a black-tie dinner party, life on Earth is very different during wartime than it is during peacetime. Astrology also states clearly when an influence begins and is finished; this makes it possible to look back or go forward in time to identify patterns.
Meanwhile, the Elite (powers-that-be that control the world) debunk astrology while using it as a tool to predict human behavior to perpetrate their power games. This site observes how some global political powers use astrology to stay one step ahead of the people.
Astrology is the highest art for analyzing human behavior, and smart people use it. AstroFlash! looks at how the Elite might be planning events for us during the end of the Mayan Calendar, and it offers tips on how to live better amidst such transformative times. Also, this astrological analysis includes the influences of the Days and Nights of the Galactic Underworld-1999-2011, based on Carl Johan Calleman's time acceleration hypothesis, which explores Nine Underworlds of evolution in the universe over 16.4 billion years. AstroFlash! explores how individuals can succeed and be free and happy during the remainder of the Mayan Calendar.
How have we gotten to this critical juncture? Why are 1999 through 2011 so critical for the survival of our species? My recent book Catastrophobia (2001) theorizes that we are afflicted with a crippling, species-level, post-traumatic stress syndrome that I call "catastrophobia". This trauma complex developed 11,500 years ago as the result of a great cosmic catastrophe in our solar system. This malaise in the collective psyche of our species deepened during thousands of years after the 9500 BC cataclysm, when our ancestors endured starvation and horrific environmental stress. Before this time during the Regional Underworld-100,000 BC through AD 2011--Earth was the Garden of Eden; we experienced oneness with our planet. These events that separated us from nature are deeply buried in our minds. Just like adults who once endured early-childhood abuse that they've largely forgotten, we must heal ourselves by recovering these memories and understanding how they have changed us.
Catastrophobia presents evidence that Earth's axis did not tilt very much before 9500 BC, when the cosmic disaster disarranged the whole solar system. Therefore, AstroFlash! is structured by seasonality--equinoxes and solstices-because once the axis tilted, early humans quickly learned how to maximize their potential by arranging their lives by the seasons. Seasonality is not taken into account much in modern times, but it actually has a huge influence on human consciousness. George W. Bush invaded Iraq exactly during the Spring Equinox of 2003 because the Elite knew this moment had formative potential. This was also Day Three of the Galactic, so this invasion caused events that will influence the rest of the Galactic Underworld.
Once Earth's axis tilted 11,500 years ago, the new seasons necessitated agriculture for human survival, and gradually hunter-gatherer cultures gave up their ways of life that were in harmony with nature. Focus on the seasons and lunar cyles goes way back to more than 10,000 years ago, which is why AstroFlash! examines them in detail. I've discovered ancient ways to balance our consciousness by showing how to use the potentiality of each season with intention. I believe that we must utilize the potential of this quarterly pattern to slowly integrate our neurological systems with the changes caused by the recently tilting axis. Like Humpty Dumpty falling off his wall, we can't put ourselves back together again. We can use the cycles of the Moon to master our emotions very effectively when the lunar analysis is understood in light of the four seasons. This technique really helps us handle time acceleration.
The great cataclysm disarranged the solar system and greatly disturbed many planetary patterns. For example, Uranus tilts 90 degrees on its axis. Uranus rules cultural transformations, and by its foundation chart, the United States is very influenced by Uranus. Now that we are moving into the Age of Aquarius, which Uranus rules, the USA is poised to become the global empire. AstroFlash! incorporates the birth chart of the USA in 1776, which is in the Methodology which follows. The ancients discovered they could assess politics realm by examining the conjunctions of Jupiter and Saturn every twenty years-the Trigons. The current Elite, the "Bushites", seized the agenda of the recent May 2000 Trigon. This has enabled them to run the show during the Galactic Underworld, so this site examines their obvious use of astrology. It offers advice on how individuals can get out of the way, as the so-called "leaders" create mass-trauma events, such a 9/11. These things are done because they stimulate catastrophobia and fear.
AstroFlash! breaks the four seasons down into three lunar cycles within the context of major planetary transits. I offer some lunar and seasonal chart comparison with background charts (see Methodology) by means of combust (less than 1 degree by conjunction) aspects. We begin with how you can master seasonality. This is written for people north of the equator, yet if you live south of the equator, just reverse summer and winter.
The New Year is not January 1st! The new year-the Spring Equinox-occurs around March 21, when the Sun enters 0 degrees Aries by geocentric astrology. For Earth, this is when the Sun is directly over the equator. Then it tracks north until it reaches the Tropic of Cancer at 0 degrees Cancer during the Summer Solstice around June 21. Then it turns back and crosses over the equator at 0 degrees Libra during to the Fall Equinox around September 23. It moves south of the equator until it reaches the Tropic of Capricorn at 0 degrees Capricorn on the Winter Solstice around December 21. Then the Sun seems to move north again for its return to the equator for the next Spring Equinox. Of course, the Sun only seems to move in this pattern from Earth's view, since the phenomena is caused by the tilt of Earth's axis as it orbits the Sun during a solar year.
The modern calendar abuses our conciousness! The time to make plans for each year is during the Spring Equinox, not during the so-called "New Year". The most philosophical and spiritual time of the year is the Winter Solstice, which is reduced to addictions and consumerism by Christmas shopping, eating, and drinking. In fact, December 21st to March 21st, the last quarter of the year, is our yearly completion time. The special days and nights right before the Winter Solstice are the most mystical time of the year, and we should meditate for hours during this time. Then when the Sun is in Capricorn, Aquarius, and Pisces before the Spring Equinox, we should be deepening our understandings of all the things we have learned during the last nine months-the previous Spring Equinox to the Winter Solstice.
The Spring Equinox is the time to identify the intentions we wish to fulfill during the four seasons. Ideas correctly seeded at the Spring Equinox manifest for a year, and I will offer instructions for correctly seeding ideas and manifesting them through the rest of the seasons. During the Summer Solstice, the time has arrived to birth these ideas into recognizable form, like a forming fetus. The Fall Equinox is the time to flesh out, balance, and assess these creations and to weed things out that just are not working. Then the Winter Solstice is the time to enter into deep contemplation to imagine how our personal creations assist others and the planet.
The Winter Solstice is the time to be brutally honest and evaluate whether our ideas enhance others or whether they may actually be detrimental for evolution. A sweet elixir of knowing comes the day of the Winter Solstice when the light begins to return, and each one of us can put greater realities above our personal desires. It is no accident that in Western cultures commercial Christmas is inserted just when people are amazingly psychic and attuned! I suggest you cancel Santa Claus during the Winter Solstice and spend three months reflecting on what you've created during the year.
2011 Fall Equinox: September 23, 2011
It is the Fall Equinox north of the equator, and the Spring Equinox south of the equator. In the north, it is time to balance the intentions you created during the Spring Equinox, while in the south it is time to create new intentions for what you want to create during the year. This site is written for readers north of the equator, so those down south will need to apply this reading to their spring intentions.
It is the Fall Equinox, the great balancing moment when we gather ourselves together to prepare for the clarity and challenge of winter. This equinox is especially energized because the Spring Equinox occurred soon after the beginning of the Universal Underworld on March 9, 2011-and this Fall Equinox occurs shortly before the completion of the Universal on October 28, 2011. Therefore this short period is the richest and most conscious evolutionary phase we have ever experienced as humans. As most of you already know, 2011 is the apex of time acceleration. Evolution has progressed twenty times faster during the Galactic Underworld (1999-2011), and with only weeks remaining, we are reflecting upon 16.4 billion years of growth in our universe.
Since March 9, we have been analyzing our progress by the seven Days and six Nights of the Universal; and many of us have awakened our latent human capacity that leads us to co-creation with divine forces. Day Six of the Universal (Sept. 5-22), the flowering phase of the Universal, is complete as Night Six opens on the Fall Equinox. The synchronicity between the Mayan Calendar and these astrological cycles reminds us that the critical leap in these rapidly intensifying evolutionary phases occurs during Night Six (Sept. 23 to Oct. 10). During Night Six's in previous Underworlds, cataclysms shook things up and new evolutionary strains came forth. Now, something will happen that will cause a few individuals to work directly with divine forces, and soon more and more people will discover this advanced capacity. How might you recognize this capacity within yourself? It is like being a conductor of a great symphony that activates joy and bliss in the audience, and not by attaining power or control. New tools for this phase are coming forth, such as the inspirational film, Journey Through the Universe, by gravitational physicist Brian Swimme [visit www.journeyoftheuniverse.org], premiering in Seattle on 9/29.
Considering the critical nature of this final and highly accelerated Universal Underworld, I focus on some new creations flowering during Day Six that are balancing and harmonizing the new emerging fractal fields. The three main themes we've been following during the Universal are the unsolved problems of using nuclear energy, global financial health, and changing politics in the Middle East. These issues came to the forefront during Day One of the Universal; they've matured and developed within the waves from midpoint to midpoint during the Universal Days and Nights; and now they are almost fully mature, which requires balancing them this fall. The main focus here will be the Palestinian request to the United Nations for statehood, since it is to be considered on the Fall Equinox. Palestine's president, Mahmoud Abbas, repeated his statehood request exactly when Pluto went direct on September 16. As shown by this timing, Middle Eastern instability will be the hot issue during Night Six, when we also will probably see high focus on nuclear power issues and global finance. For example, new debt instruments, euro bonds, were proposed during Day Six and their success (or failure) will be known during Night Six. By the way, Fareed Zakaria on CNN's GPS has proposed that China help solve the global debt crisis by making loans through the IMF, just as the US did after WWII, an idea that could certainly bear fruit during Day Seven.
Longtime readers of this website know that I've often said that world peace will not come until the conflict over Israel is resolved. This E/W tension erupted in Egypt (as well as in Tunisia, Libya, Syria, Yemen) when the people threw out Hosni Mubarak and now struggle to govern. Israel was driven out of its Cairo embassy on September 10, when a mob of rioters tore down the tall concrete wall surrounding around it and occupied the building. This was a stunning blow to Israel, and if such a thing had ever happened while Mubarak was in power, Israel would have attacked Egypt. So far, there is no significant reaction. The seizure of the Israeli embassy and the destruction of its hated wall is a strange repeat of the Exodus, which happened just when Palestine's request for statehood is on the table. The US says it will veto the Palestinian request, which would cause many to wonder why Israel was granted its own request for statehood in 1948.
Palestine is the vortex for the three religions that claim their status from Abraham's covenant with Yahweh. This month, the UN may embark on a total reorganization of the Middle East, since the world seeks balance in these wildly conflicting interests. Regarding the completion of all Nine Underworlds on October 28, 2011, Night Six and the Fall Equinox are a do-or-die moment. If the momentous changes that are needed now are blocked this fall, then unity consciousness is being aborted. Since such an outcome would be against nature, this analysis focuses on potential solutions. The solutions are many. For starters, note that New Moon in Libra arrives four days after the Fall Equinox and liberates the search for justice and truth. At the Equinox itself, the Sun moves into with Mercury in Virgo close behind, so we are armed with intelligent exactitude. Sun/Mercury closely oppose Uranus retrograde in 3 Aries with newly direct Pluto in 5 Capricorn forming the head of a T-square to this opposition. Uranus and Pluto are in the early stages of many subsequent squares that will occur through 2015, so we must observe the dance of these two outer planets. Unlike some people studying the Mayan Calendar, for me this period is not the "end times." I'm starting to think 2011 will eventually be seen as the end of this obsession with sin and atonement. Instead, we are experiencing Reverse Rapture-the only way to purge this nutty fanaticism from the religions founded by Abraham! Finally we can partake of true wisdom-after being bored by two thousand years of waiting for the apocalypse. Let's look more closely at the Uranus/Pluto squares, since they are orchestrating the next big change phase-2012-2015.
On the day of the Spring Equinox 2011, Uranus was the big mover and shaker. Just after the Sun went into Aries, it moved to Uranus, which propelled the Day One time acceleration. Uranus retrograded in July, and now it is traveling back to its Spring Equinox position. This transit is forcing us to process the great changes that began with Day One. Pluto in Capricorn is newly direct and very potent, since its Capricorn transit to 2024 rules the transformation of the world's financial and industrial systems. Then, as Uranus, the plantet of revolution, begins its squares to Pluto, Uranus has just begun a new 84-year-long cycle in Aries, which fully empowers to transform reality. Anybody noticing? And, this 84-year Uranus cycle takes us to 2095! Consider how astrology's focus on the future is a great antidote to the focus on endings.
The equinox chart suggests that the great transformation of antiquated belief systems is the major theme: Sun and Mercury opposing Uranus with newly direct Pluto as the head of the T-square charges us with passion and determination to shove great blockages out of the way. The tension between the opposing planets (Sun/Mercury opposite Uranus) pushes Pluto into hyper drive. During this fall, with Sun conjunct Mercury, individuals will makes constant adjustments and changes inspired by Uranus, and these shifts will empower Pluto to encourage us to dump antiquated financial, industrial, and political systems. Uranus goes all the way back to 0 Aries on Christmas Day, and then, as it goes direct, opposing forces will just cave in. This process will accelerate because of continual Uranus/Pluto squares through 2015. Yes, people around you may be screaming about endings, yet 2011 is merely a turning point when people choose to be Keepers of Earth.
We go to the Moon next, because ultimately we are the most transformed by our feelings. This chart suggests we will have the emotional strength to accomplish great changes. The Moon in 4 Leo is conjunct Mars in 3 Leo and sextile to Sun and Mercury. This fall we will have clear feelings, good energy, and strong wills; this will inspire us to push for Libran justice and equality, especially with a global focus on statehood for the Palestinians. Moon-conjunct-Mars in early Leo gives us feelings of confidence and trust, and their close sextile to the equinox Sun/Venus in Libra supports our search for equality. But, there is even more! Moon/Mars is the head of a tight Yod from Chiron/Neptune on the right sextiling newly direct Pluto in Capricorn in the left. You can activate Yods by visualizing the following: Hold the sextile in your hands and shoot the energy in your hands out to the opposite point (Moon/Mars in Leo) like using a dowsing rod. Yods are extremely magical and directive configurations, yet unwisely most astrologers ignore them. Yods show us how to direct energy, which activates all the elements in the chart.
Yods are major configuration like squares, oppositions, and trines. Before I analyze this Yod, let's notice a few things about Neptune, a significant player in this Yod. Neptune is in its last sojourn in Aquarius, and after turning direct on November 9, it goes forward into Pisces permanently in early 2012, when it will inspire a great spiritual revival. Neptune first entered Aquarius in early 1998, just before the closest alignment of the Winter Solstice Sun to the Galactic Center in spring 1998. This galactic alignment altered the fractal fields, and then the Galactic Underworld time acceleration opened in January 1999. Neptune in Aquarius is the planetary accelerator of the Galactic Underworld, the energizer of the Age of Aquarius, and our guide for purifying the National Underworld religions. Since 1999, many have recovered their direct access to divine consciousness by eschewing traditional religions and embracing human community. This Yod is a tool for extrication from religious control.
To read the Yod, imagine holding Neptune/Chiron in your right hand and Pluto in your left, and then shoot waves of energy out through Moon/Mars. Your right hand courses with the potent healing energy of Chiron in unison with Neptune's spiritual guidance, while your left hand courses with the passionate depth of Pluto in total synchronicity with Gaia now, and the force coursing through Moon/Mars activates all the fire of your will and your ability to feel. This Yod has all four elements-Moon/Mars in fire, Pluto in Earth, Neptune in Air, and Chiron in Water-so it moves you into the center of all the elements where you can activate all nine dimensions. As you can see, the cosmos is guiding our transformation.
More aspects in the fall chart give us the power to balance our consciousness in the new fractal fields. Saturn in 18 Libra is sextile to the lunar North Node in 18 Sagittarius, an aspect that offers the ideal discipline for utilizing Saturn in Libra's balancing powers. Saturn is trining the lunar South Node, so the flow of past wisdom is multifaceted and stimulating; we just know what we must do now. Jupiter retrograde in earthy Taurus holds us in a state of deep contemplation, as its trine to Pluto in Capricorn focuses efforts to "just let go of old things needing to be transformed." Venus in 10 Libra is close to Saturn contributing the joy of fathers and daughters working together for planetary harmonics. Venus's close trine to Jupiter in Taurus reminds everybody to value resources and to use them for good and creative things.
The Universal Underworld time acceleration has been radical for most people; many have reported feelings of being dragged by depressing inertia during 2011. Yet, now that Day Six is complete, the Universal form is coalescing and is whipping ripples through the fractal fields as nine dimensions open in our bodies. The sixth dimension has already shifted the fractal fields in 3D, and we are just getting glimpses of this influence now. We see it in things going on in our personal lives or in the world that manifest new outcomes in surprising ways. The changes we attain in 3D strengthen our alignments with 6D, and these ideal forms are restructuring the higher-order fractal fields. Just trust, just surrender, if you can. In the greater world, pay no attention to those barking about the end times-since this moment is our Birth. Tune in for the New Moon reading in a few days, when we will be able to better see how this remarkable Fall Equinox chart releases the balancing forces of all nine dimensions in sacred Earth.
Scorpio New Moon: October 26, 2011 View Chart
Global (and individual) balancing began with the Fall Equinox and was reinforced by the Libra New Moon on September 27-and now the time for truth and personal integrity has arrived. This Scorpio New Moon's dark intensity reminds us to cleanse our emotions and see what still remains. Under strong Scorpio influence, everything gets destroyed that can't handle the hard and clear light of truth. Pluto, the ruler of Scorpio, went direct on September 16, the day before Occupy Wall Street began, so Scorpio cleansing is global; people are connecting to demand equal justice for all.
This New Moon is unusually influential because it arrives two days before the end of the Mayan Calendar on October 28, 2011. We have reached the evolutionary turning point of our species-and we must each consider becoming intentional keepers of Earth. Those who continue to use Earth for their own desires with no consideration for the planet's multidimensional fields of creation are going to crash and burn. Those who accept their eco-sensitive creative mantle-the new aura of Gaia-are the new seeds for our planet's beautiful future. As October 28 arrives, the Nine Underworlds of Creation will rebirth many Earth Keepers. This exciting New Moon in Scorpio sets the field for the simultaneous culmination of Nine Underworlds. The period from the New Moon through midnight on October 28 will probably be remarkable and mystical, so I will examine it with great care.
The creative agendas of the first eight Underworlds have been driven to completion during the intensely accelerated Days of the Universal Underworld since March 9, 2011. Many dualities are resolving as the allurement of Oneness shifts the fractal fields, and many feel their personal design within this great cosmic weaving. The awakening of the Cellular is complete, now that we realize that each cell is intelligent. . . the Tree of Life has born fruit in all the species that evolved during the Mammalian over 820 million years. . . these species discovered ways to share by discovering family bonding over 41 million years in the Familial. . . and intelligence sharpened during the two-million-year Tribal. Our hearts opened during the Regional when we discovered the sacred, the numinous. We explored the desire to control and possess for 5,125 long years during the National. . . and then we sought security and comfort starting in 1755 during the Planetary. Since the January 1999 opening of the Galactic, we've connected ourselves by means of technology. . . and now during 2011 these creative developments are swirling us into a spiral of Oneness during the Universal.
Our species will require hundreds, if not thousands, of years to consciously process all the abuses that were the natural result of our rise to consciousness during the 16.4 billion years described by the Calendar. Like trying to push a huge fallen tree erect, there is no turning back now. Now that we have attained fruition through these nine phases of evolution, we will learn to respect the incredible intelligence of each cell; protect all species; value the genius of family bonding; admire the awesome power of mind; feel the power in our hearts; identify hierarchical power; bless nature's plenty; use technology as a tool, not a toy; and enjoy the bliss of Oneness. We will invent the new world by co-creating reality in universal awareness. I am sure of this because I have faithfully followed all the Days and Nights of the Universal Underworld this year, and I have seen irreversible new patterns taking shape; for example, the increasing bans on the use of nuclear energy for power. Now we are flying into the radical spiral. When this vortex calms down, we must identify what we have accomplished; otherwise, we may not have the will and vision with which to go forward. So, let's assess our progress, and then I will read this New Moon to see how its field might help us embrace the simultaneous culmination of all Nine Underworlds.
Regarding a few issues this fall, Palestine requested statehood from the United Nations on the day of the Fall Equinox, which was a bold attempt to resolve the dangerous tension that festers in the Judeo/Christian/Islamic vortex. The US and its chosen allies have finished trashing Iraq, and are winding down in Afghanistan, so they are casting around for other wars to guarantee business for the weapons manufacturers. On October 21, Obama announced the removal of American troops from Iraq by Christmas, which inspired some wry comments in the October 22 New York Times: "The president's statement coming a day after the NATO air campaign hastened the death of Col. Muammar el-Qaddafi in Libya, was laden with symbolism, marking the ebb tide of a decade of American military engagements that began after the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks… For Mr. Obama, whose rise to the White House was based partly on his opposition to the Iraq war but who as president ordered a troop buildup in Afghanistan and intensified drone strikes against militants in the region, the announcement fulfills a campaign promise." War weary Americans responded with little joy over this long-awaited moment, since senior Obama officials such a Joe Biden were already trumpeting the next new American way of war to citizens weary of ground combat in the Iraq and Afghanistan. Wow! The US military spent only 1.1 billion in Libya and didn't lose a single life!
Meanwhile, the US Attorney General Eric Holder reported that his contacts in the war against the Mexican drug cartels told him Iran was behind an alleged plot to assassinate the Saudi Arabian ambassador in Washington. Stunningly, the next morning after announcing this bizarre plot, Holder and the whole Justice Department were subpoenaed by Congress to tell the truth about the ATF's (Dept of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms) involvement in providing weapons to the very same Mexican cartels! In a plan dubbed "Fast and Furious" ATF is accused of selling thousands of guns to the drug cartels, instructing border guards to allow the weapons to pass through, and then dropping all surveillance of the guns once they cross the border! Weapons sold during "Fast and Furious" have been found at dozens of crime scenes in the US and Mexico, and they've been used to shoot US Border Patrol agents! (See "Fast and Furious: 22 Shocking Facts about the Scandal that Could Bring Down the Obama Administration" on The American Dream website.) As if somebody is mixing up two movie plots concocted in another dimension, Holder calls attention away from himself by saying he found out about the alleged Saudi assassination plot from the very same drug cartel that the US was supplying with guns!
For the average person, reality was really distorted during last month's lunation because the media mostly abrogated its responsibilities by failing to fully report on the debate over Palestinian statehood, the gun-profiteering scandals brewing in the highest levels of US government, and on the real motivation for the Occupy Wall Street movement that is now "Occupy" globally. As anybody can easily see, power structures built during the last 5,125 years are being assaulted at every level because the people are demanding their rights and opposing a future of endless war and financial deprivation, but all you get on TV is bloodied bodies of fallen leaders and abused wild animals.
Going to the chart for the Scorpio New Moon, there are signs the people will attain their rights. The New Moon closely opposes retrograde Jupiter in Taurus, so Jupiter's earthy confidence expands and grounds this new intense Scorpio seed. Also, Jupiter is almost exactly trine Pluto in Capricorn, so the desire for happiness and joy is about all the people and not just "the 1%." Since Pluto went into Capricorn in 2008, this dark dynamo has been transforming the industrial power structures of this world. Now this power is emerging within the global scream for fairness with Saturn transiting Libra through fall 2012. Fairness is the theme of the New Moon because Pluto sextiles the lunation, and Saturn exactly sextiles Mars in Leo, which exactly squares Mercury/Venus in Scorpio. These are the go-go signature aspects of the closing Mayan Calendar, since the Sun exactly opposes Jupiter exactly trine Pluto on October 28. Some people fear-especially the "haves"-that these scandals and demonstrations could end up creating a horrible global bloodbath like the French Revolution. But this is not the situation because what we are seeing is the beginning of the end of 5,125 years of male-dominant abuse. This is a profound global movement with Chiron/Neptune sextiling Pluto and sextiling Jupiter, and trining the New Moon. These great changes are very healing because they aim for a spiritualized world, not just a struggle for democracy that is managed for a fee by the elite. Jupiter will go direct at 0 Taurus on Christmas Day 2011, a day when many people will celebrate the incarnation of Light.
The most intriguing aspect in this chart is Venus-in-Scorpio squaring Mars-in-Leo because the square is exact thirty minutes before the New Moon. Wow! This means the great Plutonic cleanse is going to be expressed by equal female and male forces. We've seen this marriage in many of the revolutions in the world right now, especially in Egypt. Venus in Scorpio (entered October 8) urges the expression of deep feelings, such as feeling the rights of all species. She is the lioness that protects her cubs. Mars in Leo demands total courage and loyalty to truth and all beings; he is the lion that opens the heart. With this square, I expect to see the beginning of a global cry for the protection of wild animals, especially in light of the hideous massacre in Zanesville, Ohio, in mid-October. The beautiful and passionate joining of male and female force during this New Moon is like manna falling on the freedom movements-exactly the personal power that can carry the force during the simultaneous culmination of Nine Underworlds.
Saturn in Libra exactly sextiles Mars in Leo, so this potent Venus/Mars square is stabilized by Saturn's struggle for justice. Each one of us will play a personal role in absorbing this culmination because we are the reflective aspects of evolution. The energy in the Occupy Movement is so strong and well linked by social media that it can bowl over the resistant elements of the powers-that-be as we've seen in the Middle East. The elite clutches for the old safety systems of the National, Planetary, and Galactic Underworlds; however, their greed has stolen the people's future, and people who have nothing will revolt. Mysteriously, a huge Coronal Mass Ejection (CME) shot out of the sun on October 22 that will blast Mars on the day of the New Moon! During the culmination of the Calendar, very unusual events have been going on in the solar system, and the Sun has been very expressive. For example, a few months ago a CME blasted Comet Elenin into pieces, the comet that some said was the "Comet of Chastisement" in Revelation. Ironically, the CME that will blast Mars during the New Moon could herald the end of war in a real way! You should be watching the Sun on Spaceweather.com right now to see if another CME might seriously affect the solar system.
A question for the Calendar culmination is, how much will people really understand about what is actually going on? Ironically, plenty! Mercury is very close to Venus as she squares Mars, so potent mental comprehension is added to the visceral knowledge between male and female forces expressed by Leo Mars squaring Scorpio Venus. Notice that these planets aspecting Mars will resonate with the CME as it strikes Mars! Mercury gets to within a second of Venus on November 2, when they both move into Sagittarius together. Bingo! Comprehension about the real truth in our primary relationships is going to explode: Many partners will have to deal with unresolved elements in their relationships that hold them back from supporting this huge cleansing of human history. Ouch! Do not kid yourself, we all carry these shadows, and this chart says we must clear them before they backfire on us. Mercury carries this admonition through November 2, and then Mercury goes retrograde November 23 until mid-December. As annoying as Sagittarian fire can be, it exposes the lies. Regarding deceptions, Neptune goes direct November 9 (returns to Pisces in early February 2012), so elevating conflicts to the spirit level resolves things very well in subtle ways. But don't forget spirit won't help you if you are lying, especially to yourself! This New Moon is the night when I'd love to hear the pillow talk in the White House!
Lastly, Uranus continues to square Pluto, creating a force that is causing the people to rise up in discontent, especially with Pluto having gone direct just before "Occupy Wall Street" began. Since there will be seven exact Uranus/Pluto squares during 2012-2015, this movement has only just begun. Please consider this idea: Debt is not a necessity. Debt is a technique used to weaken the populace by skimming off public reserves for the agendas of the rich, such as wars for profit. Wall Street has stupidly exposed this abuse, so now the people know that total slavery-a sort of return to a feudal age-is what will happen if debt enslavement continues. Debt enslavement is not the same as using capital to create projects, which is a technique that creates energy. Pluto will have its way in the destruction of the structures that strangle Earth, and Uranus will activate the forces of transformation that will bring resource usage back into balance. The fascinating thing about this juicy New Moon right at the end of the Calendar is that it shows that all this energy must run through each one of us-through us within our partnerships, and within the brave freedom fighters in the streets. It would seem that the flaring Sun is making sure we get enough energy!
