Gift Giving by the Signs!

Life and Style Magazine over in Spain asked me to supply them with an Astrological Gift-Giving Guide for their magazine's special Christmas Edition.

You can read it here and if you're still searching for something for someone, then you'll probably find something perfect for them here!

Material things aside, this season for me is more about "good vibes" - which can be difficult round the Holidays, but I like the magic of this time, because people seem more tuned in to ethereal things and spirit.

Wherever you may be, whatever you may 'believe' and whatever is happening in your life, this is a great time to remember you're not alone, and you're always loved. The Universe watches and provides, if only we open ourselves to it.

Here's to more treasures in 2007 - look out for some changes at the site as the numbers on our calendars change.

And thanks for all your Shared Magic this year!

Much Love,
Neil xxx

Mapping a New World: Dec 20 - New Moon in Sagittarius

The New Moon this months falls on Dec 20 at 28 Degrees Sagittarius.

With six planets in the Sagittarius there's no escaping the themes of this sign now. I've noticed numerous news stories involving travel, hiking, the grand outdoors, overindulgence, legal adjustments, religious shifts and even in my personal lives, encounters with people who use the B word - Beliefs.

What do you believe?

At the New Moon we get to look closely at our own version of 'Truth'. Does it fit our new life or are we clutching to old beliefs. A timely question as we approach a Holiday that many now celebrate merely for the twinkling lights and gifts. After all - how many really feel religiously connected to a dated story that spans many religions (same dates, different names)?

Belief rules the world as what we believe, we seem to get - we're living under a Self Fulfilling Prophesy and this New Moon we get to learn something new to help us make a leap into a new world, based on new energy and less on traditions and beliefs we have held just because it seemed like a good idea.

We're ready to open a door, throw open the window and explore the world at large. It's so vast yet we forget, as we move from one box (our bed) to another (our home) to another (our car) to another (the store) to another (the office cubicle) to another (the bus) to another (the coffin!).

No, in all seriousness, it's worth considering where your freedom is this week - and if you can venture past the city limits of your own Comfort Zone.

We're all students and teachers at the same time now - we receive messages and pass them on unknowingly.

This New Moon asks us to:

Get out on a trip somewhere
Pick up a new book, learn a new language, do something totally new
Expand space - clear up at home, move clutter, give yourself leg room and elbow space
Be the free spirit you truly are
Allow others their own space
Redefine your belief system and don't get caught up in holy wars
Stop preaching
Stand for something new - rework your 'message'
Ask yourself - am I being honest or bluffing?
Walk your talk!
Bridge Cultural Divides
Go Horseriding
Tell the truth no matter how painful or nervous it makes you
Find greener grass
Reach for a dream, star, better situation
Laugh - comedy is SO needed now!
Be optimistic, reconnect with your inner faith
Renew your religious or spiritual vows or connections
Ask the Big Questions of your life and Destiny
Publish a new book or get writing
Start a new course or take an exam
Live with integrity
Be an example, even if no one else is doing it
Have faith in the silver lining and the light at the end of the tunnel
Kick up the dust and take off
Put up a map, or map out a new course or destination
Enjoy the journey for what it is
Keep moving!
Visit overseas or a new town, city - anywhere you've not been before!
Keep your mind active and your limbs moving

Sagittarius is the mutable fire sign - think of the forest fires we've heard about so often on the news now. That's sag - spreading wildly, untamed and running free like the Centaur; the symbol of the sign.

See your Bigger Picture. Forget the small stuff and don't sweat the details. Stand back. Gain perspective. Climb a Hill, take a breather, look beyond the current time frame of circumstance and find the bigger meaning.

There's no reason to get bogged down in chilly feelings or emotional potholes now - the road of life is showing us a new horizon, a new exit, a detour to a new place. Are we "present" enough to see this?

Choices open up and once again we see just where our freedom and power lies - in choosing the best for ourselves. You cannot fool someone out of the truth -it's felt in our heart and guts and souls as a bell chiming inside. Truth seeks truth and finds it this week - so the question becomes:

Are you living the life you were born to live?
Anything else is a lie.
Honesty isn't the best policy, then.
It's the only one.
And assurance (and insurance)
of Bliss, guaranteed.

December 22: Global Orgasm Day!

Don't forget - December 22 is Global Orgasm Day.

It's a time when all sexual energy is being dedicated to the healing of the planet and to everyone on it. Don't laugh - this could be pretty powerful!

So, wherever you are, if you're one of the lucky ones having an orgasm, send it to the Universe, and read up here on what other people will be doing on this day, worldwide.

Be part of something bigger than yourself - and this time, Size Matters. (Sorry couldn't resist...)

Energy is powerful. As the years go by, we're going to see this.
Let's try an experiment, and this is the place to begin.

Enjoy healing yourself and everything else you're connected to - which is everything!

Significance of Moles on the Body

I had a rather enlightening conversation early this morning with a Vedic Astrologer in India.
I rarely have my chart read by anyone else (as most people don't know how to read charts!) but he took a look over mine, and I over his.

He suggested a 'wrap-up' lifetime of serving people, and also about Tantric energy, using sexual energy to reach a higher level. He mentioned past lives studying this and he asked if I had a "mole on my thing". A little probing (excuse the pun) and he notified me that it was a sign if I had one that I have a background in this energy work.

Indeed I have.

Now you know. A mole on your thing comes with great sexual energy and possible Tantric connections. This led me on a little quest of my own and I found this site today, who knows if this holds any water, but it does for me and I found the conversation really helpful.

What's the significance of moles on your body? See if this website gives you any ideas!

Culture is Not Your Friend

I came across this short video from a longer one, regarding the shape of society and this thing called Culture, which I learned back in my early media days, is another form of a cult (cult-ure) and is worth mentioning here.

Here's the video.

To breaking free from the 'machine'!

Chakra Meditation

Here's a morning ritual that can strengthen and cleanse the body, using the Chakra energy centres. It's a short audio to listen to that will help you focus on and become aware of these special areas of the body.

The audio references 'God' but isn't a religious practice but references what many people call by different names - the Universe, Spirit, the Energy that connects us all etc. Find whatever works for you, because it's the same principle. We are all connected, and all one.

This is a great meditation to do each morning before you begin your day but can be performed at any time when you feel the need for more balance, peace, harmony or grounding.

Emotional "Mind"-fields: Full Moon in Gemini (Dec 4)

What are you talking about?

If you're currently on edge, you could read that as aggressive and pushy.
If you're contemplative, you may think it offers a genuine interest in your life.

Perception is everything. Under the Full Moon this month (under the sign of communication - Gemini) we get to see just how our mind holds the key to most things that happen now. Everything is a potential until passed through the filter of our minds.
If we perceive it, we can achieve it. If we see it, we can build it. If we think it, it has a reality to us. Thoughts have wings. If you mind, it matters...if you don't mind it doesn't matter.

That last one is an interesting one if we see 'mind' as meaning "to think about" and 'matter' as manifestation. If we hold it in our minds, we can materialize it on the physical plane now.

The power of emotions cannot be underestimated - not now, at this point in the period of Humanity's shift to a new level. E-motions are energy-in-motion. They fuel everything - the desire to get out of bed in the morning, to flee from danger, to protect ourselves, to help heal someone.

I often think of the EARTH as the HEART Chakra for something much larger. Whether that holds true or not, Full Moons bring home our own most personal truths in the areas of our Charts where they fall.

This month's falls at 12 Degrees Gemini so wherever this falls in our Birth Charts is where the action is. If you don't know your chart, drop me a line and I'll help you out. Feel free to research the rest yourself or allow me to interpret it for you. Details at my site, as always.

This month, everyone falls under the spell of this particular lunar vibration. Are we mentally fulfilled or are we wasting mental energy on thinking over things without adding something new to the pot?

Are your mental records boring you?

This Full Moon we're urged to:
Watch what we say and stop ourselves from speaking negatively, thinking negatively, acting negatively, writing negatively and otherwise engaging in meaningless conflict
Finish up paperwork
Give u
p an old chip on your shoulder
Resolve disputes with siblings and neighbors

Find something new to chew on

Speak our truth without holding back for fear of being misunderstood

Seek new information and new methods and means of moving ahead
Take the car in for a tune up

Dust the cobwebs from our brains
Get more Oxygen

Take things much more lightly
Decide finally on something you've been wavering on

Keep an open mind
Travel back to our roots (through looking through photos, or else reconnecting with our past with a trip mentally or physically)

Clean up our environment, street, building, hallway, city

Refuse to fall victims to playing a role in someone else's negative "self-speak"

Watch what we are saying and thinking repeatedly (we're building our reality with each)
Write a heartfelt letter

Say it as you see it (or feel it) - feelings can't be judged.
They just 'are' and thus should be accepted (even if not understood or agreed with)
Put your knowledge to use
Read an intense book or watch an intense movie to stir your feelings
Go for a run, jog, hike
Watch for speeding or traffic stress (drivers are more emotional at this time)

As you know by now if you've followed this Blog, Full Moons ask us if we're fulfilled in the area it influences. In Gemini, are we happy with our surroundings, with what we're learning, our level of mental satisfaction? If we're stuck mentally we may have a breakdown now leading to a breakthrough.

One thing is certain - communication is very emotional now both on an inner and outer level. So keep that in mind as you go about your daily life. Traffic trouble is another sign when you're out of these blockages. Energy is either flowing or stuck, remember, so we get to see just where and how during the Full Moon.

Slap on an ipod or mp3 player, walkman or cd player, or find a place of solitude if you can and see what your mind is craving, frustrated over or excited about. It may do well to bit your tongue now, but don't stop yourself from speaking a truth you feel someone needs to hear. You may just pass on a message that is much needed now.

Gemini is ruled by Mercury the Messenger, and this is perhaps the key to this Moon - messages are often relayed to us on riding the wave of Emotion. If you can see past the personal, you'll get to the Universal now. Truth dwells in the quiet moments between sentence.

Do animals need to speak? No. [If they good, I would shudder to think of what they would say to our treatment of a vast number of them. I became a vegetarian based purely on the fact that I cannot hurt or maim and animal, and it would be hypocritical to eat one just because it was served to me already slaughtered on my plate. I have no qualms with anyone eating meat, but for me personally, when I was 17, I suddenly stopped. When I moved to LA I couldn't watch the people fishing at the pier in Santa Monica, because I'm too sensitive to seeing any sort of suffering. I help cockroaches escape my building via a glass. Yeek. Good luck to them!]

We don't need to speak either, at all times. We're either voicing/emoting now or keeping silent. What we choose to talk about or think about defines us now. Are you being defined by the darkness? Are you keeping your mind on the stuff you want, instead of the stuff you're stuck with? Sometimes words do nothing but cause even more problems and tension. I'm of the old school that people need to know what they are doing and the pain it is causing so I find it hard to keep shtum, but I do believe silence often is a good enough reply.

So, what words are flying, what thoughts have wings now?

Under every event, every word spoke, every idea, and every possibility lies a spiritual status-quo that everything is fine, everything is as it should be, and that everything just 'is'. Perhaps our perceptions can be seen for what they are - not reality, but perceptions.

Whatever bugs you at this Full Moon time, in the next two weeks, your perception is likely to be either FOR or AGAINST it. Either side is a bias, of course. If you're truly not happy, then what are you doing to change the situation? How long can you accept it? This is OUR choice and our responsibility (response - ability, the ability to respond to what comes out way).

If you are happy, then know that all things change, but the happiness you see and feel is a reflection of what you are happy with inside.

Each path now leads to the same place, but using our minds, we can decide to follow the more scenic one.

I don't believe any growth necessarily needs to come with pain. Teething, growth spurts, puberty - these do cause tension and strains. But just as a weed can finally find its way through even the thickest concrete, via a small crack, a small possibility, as quietly as night turns to day, so too can we grow by taking the easiest route available at any given time -

by moving continually in the direction of our own Light -
even at times when there appears
to be none.

Freeing the Wild Horses: Sagittarius Season

Today, as the Moon conjoins Chiron - the wounded Centaur in mythology - and as planets begin to stack up in Sagittarius, the sign also linked to horses (being half-centaur) I enjoyed stumbling across this news and video. I think you'll enjoy it - it represents the symbolic period we are now in - when all it takes is one brave move to free ourselves from fear.

No wo/man is an island, and every soul was born to roam free. This video is dedicated to that eternally free spirit within us all.

So much has ben written about the coming shift by 2012. We're already in the process of this and all that you see, hear, feel, take part in, release, stress over, ignore, deny, are shocked by and find yourself in the midst of right now is all part and parcel of these major evolutionary shifts.

Dec 21 2012 is the end of the Mayan Calendar, and an ancient 'timing device' that marks the beginning of a new era on Planet Earth. I came across this posted online so I am posting it here for everyone's benefit and enjoyment.

I'll be writing more on 2012 in the future for certain.


Mayan timekeeper's records indicate that 2012 marks the close of several large cycles of time: a 26,000 year Mayan Calendar cycle, a 78,000 year Earth cycle, a 26 million year Earth cycle and the 225 million Galactic Year. The simultaneous close of these cycles in 2012 is like the odometer turning over for the entire history of our galaxy, and perhaps the whole cosmos. It is a moment when humanity, Planet Earth, the Milky Way Galaxy and perhaps all of creation is expected to take a simultaneous leap in evolution.

2012 Philosophy

1. Humanity and Planet Earth are currently going through a huge
change or shift in consciousness and reality perception.

2. The Mayan civilization of Central America was and is the most
advanced in relation to time-science knowledge. Their main calendar
is the most accurate on the planet. It has never erred. They
actually have 22 calendars in total, covering the many timing cycles
in the Universe and Solar System. Some of these calendars are yet to
be revealed.

3. The Mayan fifth world finished in 1987. The sixth world starts in
2012. So we are currently "between worlds". This time is called
the "Apocalypse" or revealing. This means the real truth will be
revealed. It is also the time for us to work through "our stuff"
individually and collectively.

4. The Mayan sixth world is actually blank. This means it is up to
us, as co-creators, to start creating the new world and civilization
we want now.

5. The Mayans also say that by 2012-
- we will have gone beyond technology as we know it.
- we will have gone beyond time and money.
- we will have entered the fifth dimension after passing through the
fourth dimension
- Planet Earth and the Solar System will come into galactic
synchronization with the rest of the Universe.
- Our DNA will be "upgraded" (or reprogrammed) from the centre of
our galaxy. (Hunab Ku)

6. In 2012 the plane of our Solar System will line up exactly with
the plane of our Galaxy, the Milky Way. This cycle has taken 26,000
years to complete. Virgil Armstrong also says that two other
galaxies will line up with ours at the same time. A cosmic event!

7. Time is actually speeding up (or collapsing). For thousands of
years the Schumann Resonance or pulse (heartbeat) of Earth has been
7.83 cycles per second, The military have used this as a very
reliable reference. However, since 1980 this resonance has been
slowly rising. It is now over 12 cycles per second! This mean there
is the equalivant of less than 16 hours per day instead of the old
24 hours. Another intrepetation is - we, or rather Consciousness
have been down this same road seven times before over the last 16
billion years. Each of these cycles of Creation runs 20 times faster
than the last one. The same amount of Creation is paced 20 times
tighter. This is why time seems to be going so fast. It is
not "time" but Creation itself that is accelerating.

8. During the Apocalypse or the time "between worlds" many people
will be going through many personal changes. The changes will be
many and varied. It is all part of what we came here to learn or
experience. Examples of change could be- relationships coming to an end, change of residence or location, change of job or work, shift
in attitude or thinking etc.

9. Remember, in any given moment we are making small and large
decisions. Each decision is based on LOVE or FEAR. Choose love,
follow your intuition, not intellect and follow your passion
or "burning inner desire." Go with the flow.

10. Thought forms are very important and affect our everyday life.
We create our reality with thought forms. If we think negative
thoughts of others this is what we attract. If we think positive
thoughts we will attract positive people and events. So be aware of
your thoughts and eliminate the unnecessary negative or judgemental ones.

11. Be aware that most of the media is controlled by just a few. Use
discernment! Look for the hidden agendas. Why is this information
being presented to you? What is "their" real agenda? Is it a case of
problem..reaction..solution? Do "they" create a problem so that
"we" react and ask for a fix, then "they" offer their solution?
The "solution is what "they" really wanted in the first place.

12. Remember almost nothing happens by accident. Almost all "events"
are planned by some agency or other. Despite this, it is a very
exciting time to be alive!.. The truth shall set you free!


As incredible as it may seem too many people, humanity on Earth is in the process of an evolutionary change in how we experience life. We are to become a galactic civilization, interacting positively with
the many star system civilizations in our galaxy and universe, and
indeed other universes. It is our true destiny to change from a society based on fear and competition, to one based on love, peace,
and harmony. The current chaos is merely part of the quickening change.

We live in an invisible universe (often referred to as spiritual realms, or Heaven) as well as the visible universe, which is the only part most people believe exists. The real truth has been hidden from us so we would eventually remember and discover who we really are, great immortal beings of universal knowledge and wisdom, closely connected to our physical brothers and sisters in space, and those in the spiritual realms. Unfortunately many governments, religions, and philosophies have been manipulated to keep much of the truth from us so others could retain power and control. The recent retaliation to so-called terrorist attacks in the USA will, in time, be shown to be one of the final attempts to keep us under control. However, it is time for a great change in understanding by world populations, who mainly want peace, despite what is presented to us by a manipulated mass media.

Many people feel "something is about to happen", but because much of the current change is in the invisible universe, before manifesting in the visible universe, it is difficult to comprehend at first. We have actually been part of a grand "experiment", having agreed at a higher level of understanding to be here in these exciting "end times", the end of one civilization, and the beginning of a new one, known as the Seventh Golden Age that we will co-create.

Much has been written, spoken, and prophesized about our future.
Some of this information was true at the original time of recording,
but has since changed. Some of it was never true, and was intended to manipulate us. And some information was correct and still holds firm today. Sorting all this out is the difficult part. That is why what is "truth" for one person, is not necessarily "truth" for
someone else. You need to apply your own discernment to all
information, including what I am presenting in this article. People
are waking up in varying degrees as we continue our learning.

Some information is difficult to absorb, such as the nature of our
hollow Earth and the ancient civilizations still living there. Like the fact that many people have actually traveled back in time to change the future of this planet and universe, many eons ago. And like the fact we have discovered how to make war ships invisible and time travel again, since 1943 and how the Apollo Moon Program was a
cover-up of higher technology.

Secret trips had already been made to establish bases on the Moon and Mars, and to explore other parts of our solar system since the early 60s. Finally, to whet your appetite a little more, or make you more skeptical, depending on where your awakening path is at, Earth is expected to slow its rotation, stop, and reverse its spin without catastrophes, along with being moved in space with the rest of the solar system to become part of the Sirian star system!

The Earth has a consciousness of its own, it is a living being. The
Divine Plan of the Creator, which we all follow, knowingly or unknowingly, calls for the Earth to ascend from the reality we know
as the 3rd Dimension, to the 4th Dimension (an intermediate or
temporary existence) and then to the 5th Dimension. This has long
been suggested to be around the end of 2012, or earlier. Humanity,
and all other life must be ready to ascend, or increase vibration,
to move with the planet most people no longer have the time to go
through separate and individual ascension processes that could take another 200 or 390 years. They are in their last incarnation and
should ascend to help establish the next creation on Earth and the
whole universe. This means keeping these bodies and gradually bringing them back to about the age of 30. Those not ready, will
incarnate back into the 3rd Dimension on another planet. They cannot return to the higher dimension Earth. Some people's "contract" is up and they will return to previous star systems, if they wish, and even ascend higher than the 5th Dimension. No one on Earth was originally from this planet.

Ascension is the integration of spirit and matter. It is the process
where our physical, emotional, mental, and all spiritual bodies combine to create a fully conscious being. We take on a Light body.
We are really spiritual beings having a human experience. We have
other aspects of ourselves who exist on other worlds, in other dimensions or realities. In essence, we are all physical Angels with
a giant amnesia problem. Through ascension, we realize we are all
connected; we are all One with all other life in the universe.

Everything came from one Creator. Race differences, war, owning
property, land rights, in fact all aspects of our current world, are
really illusory. We live in a giant hologram.

Many dimensions, also known as planes, mansions, and parallel worlds exist in the same space. They only differ by degrees of vibration. When we increase our vibration sufficiently, we change dimension. A measure of the vibration rate of the Earth, its heartbeat, is the Schumann Resonance, which appears to be measured differently by some Earth scientists compared with higher realm information. For years it stayed at 7. 8 cycles per second (hertz). It began moving up at the time of the Harmonic Convergence. August 1987, the year of much spiritual awakening. In theory, when it is constantly at 13. 0, we are in the 4th Dimension. According to some sources we have been sitting at 12. 9 for some time, and will move to 13. 8 in the near future.

Ascension is expected to be achieved when we are fully exposed to
the photon belt energies. This is a toroid-shaped energy band that
our solar system passes through twice in a 26, 000 year cycle. Each
pass in previous cycles has lasted about 2, 000 years. We are currently in the belt, but protected from premature fatal ascension
by a holographic energy field placed around our solar system by the
Galactic Federation of Light, our allies from other civilizations in our Milky Way Galaxy. As our vibration rate increases, some photon
energies are gradually released into our solar system.

Initially, a 12-strand RNA/DNA system will have replaced our body's
current 2-strand system. We will have increased our 7-chakra system of body energy vortexes to a 13-chakra system. We will also
consciously use 100 percent of our brain, instead of the 10 to 20
percent currently utilized. Full consciousness will return to us, that are the awareness of why we are here, what we are to do in the
future, and what our past lives have been. We will have universal
knowledge at our finger tips, or rather, our brain receptors, and
have super-human abilities.


As ascended galactic humans (physical angels), we will be able to
interact with all sentient life forms in our galaxy, universe, and
beyond. We will regain extraterrestrial powers that we lost many
lifetimes ago. Telepathy, teleportation, and interplanetary travel
without space craft will be possible using our Light body or merkaba.
Some people will be able to revisit or return to their previous star
system that they came from. Some will help to repopulate Mars,
Venus, and Maldek which will be re-formed from the Asteroid Belt.
The majority will stay on Earth for the new Golden Age, and will
help create it. Earth will be a showcase planet, a major centre for
trade, conferences, and headquarters for the Intergalactic Union of
many galaxies near us.

Those who populate Earth will become her true stewards, anchoring
Light and supporting energy nodes and grids around the planet at
great temples. The whales and dolphins have been burdened with this task for far too long. We will live in magnificent crystalline cities within the Earth, although they will seem as if they are on the surface. This is how all higher dimension civilizations live on other planets. It is how many Lemurians and Atlanteans already live
within the shell of our hollow Earth. We will be meeting them soon.
Our new civilization will again be based on spiritual concepts of
Lemuria, which in turn, was based on Sirius B concepts.

Our current structure of governments will cease. Higher intelligent
beings will help us set up new governing councils based on appropriate universal principles. We will have the final say in fine-
tuning new government, without interference from those who currently control governments.


one of the greatest restrictions to our progress is the repressive
control of world "official" governments by a secretive Shadow
Government, which also limits the type of daily news or "truth" we
receive through the world's mass media.

This is why many people are not aware of the current and coming
great changes to civilization. It is the reason we have fear-based
news most of the time on television and in newspapers.

Keeping people in fear and distress through news, financial matters,
wars and violence, and mind control, plus filled with harmful foods,
drinks, legal and illegal drugs, as well as being subjected to harmful chemtrails, are some of the means to keep our vibrations low. This makes ascension so much harder to achieve.

This negative control has also been an aspect of many religions and philosophical groups for a long time. The good news is that this manipulation and control of worldwide societies is quickly coming to an end. A dictatorial New World Order/One World Government, masquerading as a democratic globalization program, will not be allowed by higher realms intervening on our behalf. We agreed to this intervention before incarnating here, despite some people believing it contravenes `free choice", which it does not under the Creator's divine plan. Those who don't believe in a Creator or this plan are in for a big surprise!

Disclosures on how we have been manipulated are soon to be announced, and will commence some wonderful changes. The little known aspect of the Shadow Government is that it, in turn, has been controlled by negative extraterrestrial beings who have given them much advanced technology for their control on Earth. However, we should not hate these aspects of our society. We have probably all exhibited negative traits in past lives just for the experience! It is best to send them love and have nothing to do with their controlling schemes whenever we have the choice. In the near future, all darkness on Earth will be transmuted to Light, and in doing so, will create a stronger Light. Many of the Shadow Government former ET dark allies are now part of the forces of Light in this galaxy. Many former Shadow Government people have also now aligned with the Light The remaining ones can either do the same, or continue incarnating on another 3rd Dimension planet until they are ready to ascend to higher dimensions. It is their choice.


Our universe is teaming with life at various levels of evolution. We
are more or less at the bottom, but are about to make a giant move
in the "up" direction. The highest intelligence is the collective energies we term God, the Creator, or numerous other terms. From
here, and down through many descending levels of vibration, known as dimensions, planes, or mansions, exist a multitude of beings,
initially in spiritual form, then semi-solid, and then in dense bodies like our current ones. We know these beings by terms such as
Elohim, Archangels, Lords of Light, Angels, Ascended Masters, and
finally extraterrestrials, which have humanoid bodies or those we can call dinoid, insectoid, and reptoid. Television reveals some of
these forms in shows like "Star Trek". We have all existed in these
higher energy forms before, but intertwined with other aspects of
ourselves. We are each part of a soul group of approximately 12
souls, and part of a soul family of approximately 144.

Billions of souls (aspects of God) were sent to Earth to see if they
could rind their way back to the vibration of God or the purest
Light without memory of where they had been. This has never been
done in this way anywhere before. Thus the uniqueness of our current situation or "experiment". Earth is the fulcrum for change and peace in this galaxy and universe. Evolution elsewhere cannot proceed successfully until we ascend to the 5th Dimension. Many
civilizations are watching us with intense interest. Higher dimensions can see through to lower dimensions, but we cannot see higher dimensions from here. In recent years, mankind has had
virtually unlimited access to the highest beings of Light who provide guidance through channeled contacts and sometimes even manifesting in etheric or physical form.


Divine intervention is allowed to occur in a planet's affairs when
spiritual progress is hindered. In fact it is part of our incarnation contract which calls for it at our stage of evolution, before we connect permanently again with other galactic civilizations.

The intervention is carried out at a physical level by our space
brothers and sisters, and at a spiritual level by the Spiritual
Hierarchy. Our space brethren include the Galactic Federation of
Light, a sort of "United Nations" of our galaxy, comprising over
200, 000 or 90% of the civilizations in it. It was formed over 4
million years ago. About 60% of physical beings in our galaxy are
non-humanoid in appearance.

Both types travel in spacecraft. An inter-galactic group of ships
and personnel, the Ashtar Command, work closely with the Galactic
Federation. The Spiritual Hierarchy consists of the Elohim orders,
the Time Lord councils, the Angelic realms, Ascended Masters, and
the Devic kingdom. They don't need space craft, although the
Ascended Masters often "hang out" in Ashtar Command ships.

Incidentally, the Time Lords regulate time, which together with
Light, are the two elements that compose Creation. The Galactic Federation have over 18 million space craft in our solar system at any one time, rotating from a much larger base. Competition is high among members to be here and assist at this great "end times" period! Some mother ships are thousands of kilometres long. The smaller shuttle craft are more commonly seen in our atmosphere.

A first contact program by the Federation has been in place for
about 10 years now. This will most likely culminate in mass
sightings of craft, a change in world governance structures, a
unification of all societies, and a return of our personal
sovereignty. Then, we can be shown how to handle and adapt to
ascension and full consciousness. Much of this is expected to be
carried out on spacecraft and within magnificent underground cities.


it is necessary for the Earth to cleanse and rebalance herself in
preparation for ascension. This preparation has been part of the
reason for many extreme weather conditions that the planet has been going through in recent years. Much volcanic and earthquake activity has been loosening the tectonic underwater landmasses of Lemuria in the Pacific Ocean (which sank about 25, 000 years ago), and Atlantis in the Atlantic Ocean (which sank about 12, 000 years ago). As part of the rebalancing, these landmasses of Lemuria and Atlantis must come to the surface. They hold ancient temples and pyramids, which have to be reactivated.

Magma upwelling within the Earth's shell towards her solid crust has
been heating the oceans for some time now. This causes the so-called El Nino and La Nina effects, particularly in equatorial regions.

Two large ice crystal layers, known as firmaments, will be re-formed
around the planet. These layers keep certain energies contained on
Earth and will give the whole planet a semi-tropical climate. They
also prevent degrading rays from reaching Earth from outer space.
Water from the melting polar caps and seawater will be used in the
firmaments. The collapse of these layers in ancient times was the
cause of great floods and much loss of life on the planet. People in
those times were twice as tall as we are now due to the protection
from DNA degradation. The layers will form from about 15, 000 to 18,
000 ft (4, 500m to 5, 500m), and from 35, 000 to 38, 000ft (10, 700
to 11, 600m). Gaps will occur at the North and South Poles, and the
firmaments will be higher when following contours of high mountain

Other landmasses will alter, and more seas and inland lakes will be
formed. All life forms, animals, and plants will be removed before
this happens. Humanity will be mainly relocated into inner Earth
cities while all this occurs. Even after our ascension, some Earth
changes are expected to continue.


More people can now confirm what is happening by tuning into their
Higher Self /Soul/I Am Presence during meditation. This "going
within" process has been practiced on Earth well before religions
and philosophical groups formed. People can assist by visualizing
Light energies in the form of unconditional love anchoring onto and
within the planet. Love conquers all! It produces peace, healing,
harmony, and oneness.

The anticipated changes to a new monetary system and world
forgiveness of debt is likely to also change government structures
in the near future. If the few remaining controlling cabals on this
planet don't allow these changes, then first contact with our space
and spiritual friends is likely to be brought on more quickly than
expected. Should the changes occur, then greater financial and
spiritual abundance will be available to all mankind. Divisions
between races and countries will cease.

There are many people working quietly in the wings of government,
judicial and financial systems to assist the implementation of these
changes. We should be introduced to them soon. More free energy devices will become available, particularly for powering our homes and transport systems. These inventions have been available for some time. This has been pointed out in the Disclosure Project crusade, headed by Dr Steven Greer and friends who are showing the world the extent of Earth's secret contact with ET civilizations over the last 60 years. We are in the Time of Truth where many hidden truths, including those of the Shadow Government must come to the surface.

The occurrence of many disastrous Earth changes, producing much loss of life, is now unlikely due to the great increase in mass
consciousness in recent weeks since the September 11 atrocities,
caused not by isolated terrorists but by those people controlling
the US Government It is still possible though, on a day-to-day
basis, that some volcanic and earthquake activity will still occur.

Those loved ones who have already passed over are likely to join us
in higher dimensions, if that was their choice. Others who have, and
will pass over in the future, may already have decided at a higher
level that they are not ready for ascension to higher dimensions
yet. They will reincarnate onto a 3rd dimensional planet, possibly
held within the large battle planet Nibiru, soon to become a part of
our solar system.

Stand by for an interesting ride.

Now that Mercury is Direct....

Since Mercury has switched directions and is no longer Retrograde you'll notice a change of energy. As a reminder of how this is affecting everyone, and how best to use the energies now - here is a run down:

ARIES – The completion of issues dealing with your inner wealth will be resolving to allow you the freedom of movement and the opportunity to travel and to change your environment. You have had many situations, namely financial, dictating your movement or your lack of movement. Now that these issues are winding down and allowing you to set your sites on your new directions, you have the freedom that you are looking for. You have been waiting for this time of freedom because as an Aries, you don’t work well in pinned in situations. As Jupiter moves into Sagittarius, you gain the freedom you are looking for.

TAURUS – The situations dealing with other people have been trying to say the least, whether with a partner or a business associate. You have reached a time of resolution in which you have stood up for yourself and are still standing. This gives you the rights of passage to open a new door to move into a more meaningful time and place. Jupiter moving into Sagittarius provides you with finances that are less oppressive and give you more opportunity to travel. This is helpful because as the situations seemed to not grant much lead way, as Jupiter moves into Sagittarius, you are able to look at more options.

GEMINI – The transition of Jupiter from Scorpio to Sagittarius will adjust your focus from job scenarios to partnership issues. The Mercury retrograde in November will provide many shifts in your work environment and potentially also working with health improvements as well. Once Jupiter move into Sagittarius, you will begin to expand beyond your old boundaries and begin to express yourself in ways you had not before. This new expression will take you beyond your previous image and will require a whole image shift as your move into 2007. So many parts of your personality are changing that you are becoming a whole new person. It is exciting and scary at the same time.

CANCER – You have been pursuing many creative options and these options are quickly becoming recognized in your work environment. From all of the previous efforts that have come about since Jupiter was in Scorpio are now culminating to show your true value. As Jupiter moves into Sagittarius you will begin to use your goals and aspirations to express your creativity in your work environment in a way that you hadn’t planned but will quickly become an environment that recognizes your talents. During the Mercury retrograde you will adjust your creativity and hone in on the biggest splash in which your talents can be seen.

LEO – The Mercury retrograde that will occur in November will create major adjustments in your home environment. There are a great deal of events that are bubbling to the surface in your home environment that have been in the works since Jupiter first entered Scorpio in September 2005. As they culminate in the later part of October and blast into November, sudden changes and adjustments will be required in the beginning of November. Once Jupiter moves into Sagittarius your sense of self expression come bursting out of from the behind the curtain just as the curtain rises on your new sense of self emerging.

VIRGO – The issues of late that have required a great deal of thought, communication and mental gymnastics, you are now revising and distilling into the summary form that presents the real issues. Mercury retrograde will ensure that all information is correct and the edits and so forth that are needed will allow for the best to be presented once Mercury turns direct. As Jupiter moves into Sagittarius your home environment will go through a new phase because you will be able to expand your true thoughts and ideas as they make movement into your home. You may be deciding on a home and determining new goals and aspirations that are now requiring your decisions.

LIBRA – The financial aspects that have been of great concern and have been a major area of adjustment can now begin to stabilize and go through one last adjustment phase. As your finances stabilize then as Jupiter moves into Sagittarius you can begin to pursue many new and different ideas that have been on hold because of the requirement that you get your finances in order. You will be very excited with the changes that move into your life in November as Jupiter gives you so many choices that you thought were given to everyone but you. November truly makes things easier to breathe and communication process just jumps into overdrive.

SCORPIO – The challenges that you have faced with your own self image have been through the ringer since September 2005. As Jupiter culminates your responses to these challenges and begins to build a new image, your talents, abilities and strengths take on a new personality filled with confidence and courage. As Jupitier moves into Sagittarius your courageous response to personal challenges will begin to feed your financial needs and the flow begins to come back in a different form than the personal challenges you met earlier. This adjustment in November has many surprising twists and turns as Mercury retrograde ultimately empties your rewards into the Sagittarius focus of your financial well-being.

SAGITTARIUS – The focus of your inner world is coming to a culmination that allows you to move the values you have chosen into a form that enhances your self image and your new direction. Mercury retrograde allows you to make choices and to finalize the options you want to have in your life. You make these choices as Jupiter jumps into position to create a new image for you. Letting go of the old way and embracing the new is the impact that Jupiter has as Jupiter moves into Sagittarius. You will find yourself becoming more adventuresome and less afraid of your shadow or anyone elses shadow and you are ready to speak up and show a bold new self as you jump onto your new path sporting a new attitude.

CAPRICORN – Your accomplishments have been plenty as the larger arena of society had to be addressed in many ways. You have grown in understanding this side of life. Mercury has expanded your concept of humanity and has expanded your values along the lines of society. As Jupiter moves into Sagittarius, you are ready to collect a new destiny a new focus and a new direction. Your inner sense of understanding has changed immensely and now you are ready to look inside for your next steps. Your hardworking and nose to the grind stone efforts will begin to pay great dividends as you begin to have many different options drop onto your doorstep.

AQUARIUS – The great effort you have shown in your career world will culminate into a very successful enterprise. As Mercury retrograde adjusts the visibility of your personal efforts and the correlating response from people, your talents will be seen as the success that is naturally expressed with your efforts. As Jupiter ;moves into Sagittarius your successes will begin to expand into the larger world of people and community and you can become an icon of sorts because of your personal talents, efforts and care for humanity. The opportunities will begin to take you into a new direction that allows more of your talents to become visible.

PISCES – Your belief system that has required a great deal of effort will begin to show the true rewards for your steadfast ways. You have been on a journey in which your true inner values have required that you maintain your position of belief in life and belief in your philosophy. Once Jupiter moves into Sagittarius these qualities begin to have a spotlight shown on them as the well deserved reward for your strong beliefs that have been opposed at every turn. The Mercury retrograde will adjust the situations that begin to show you the value and depth that your beliefs have manifested and the rare qualities that you have expressed in the journey of late

Dancing in the Flames: New Moon in Scorpio: Nov 20

Nov 20 marks this month's New Moon, falling at 28 Degrees Scorpio.

So we have a lunar phase of new beginnings in the sign of endings, and at the very last couple of degrees of the sign, signifying a chapter close, understanding and resolution.

Scorpio is the sign of Transformation, moving from one state to another. Nothing is allowed to stagnate now at this New Moon, and how can we have a new beginning if we don't take care of the old stuff hanging around?

Something needs to die now, and the New Moon will bring about the energy to allow for a chapter change. Just as midwives help us birth something, we now need those who can aid us in letting go - who teaches us this? So now, look to play this role in others lives and for others to appear to help you with this process yourself.

Ah, there's an important word now: process. All is a process - don't expect to magically let go of everything that has to leave now. It's our nature to hold on, to dig our nails in to retain some sense of a status quo in our lives, but this new Moon shows it's tough to do that. Something has to go, something has to change, something has to die and be reborn. So accepting that something has to change, is the first step to embracing the theme of this current lunar cycle.

This New Moon:

Realize what's keeping you chained to pain, and give it up
Look at your addiction to the dark side

Begin some recycling scheme

Clear out things you no longer, use, value, need, like
Be open to intimacy and going deeper
Seek support, give support, pool resources, talents
Face your shadow
Shed a skin and don't look back

Realize your power of choice

Watch horror movies, and notice the symbolism of facing your fear/demons
Investigate, research, uncover, probe
Ask for a loan, extend credit, seek financial advice/support
Accept it's OVER

Use passion to move mountains

Take your anger, rage, jealousy, hatred and channel it into something positive in your life

Enjoy sex with a soul connection

Learn Tantra

Visit a sex shop, indulge in erotica, discover your hidden desires

Accept and embrace your Power - power 'is', it's what you do with it that matters most

Undergo hypnosis, surgery, counseling

Talk about taboos

Order a Karmic Insight Report (to detail what you're carrying with you from other lives that maybe tripping you up still. Buy this and get another Report Free with the current special).
Cast a spell or perform a ritual to enhance your power and release negativity

New Moon conjoins Jupiter in Scorpio

This New Moon brings so many opportunities since Jupiter, planet of expansion, growth and new horizons is involved. New knowledge is your ticket to freedom - don't get stuck in the same old pattern, seek greener pastures - KNOWLEDGE IS POWER. That's a key theme now.

Look further afield - try a new country, a new approach, use a different approach. What you seek may not be close to home. It's time to expand your world - is the travel bug biting? If so, scratch the itch!

New Moon squares Saturn in Leo

Power issues and inner conflicts are still being enacted. Where is our urge to grow and begin anew clashing with your 'shoulds' and ought to's? Are you blaming red tape on your inability to try new things now? Do your new ventures have a solid foundation, and if not can you strengthen your base?

Emotionally we want more, we want new things and new experiences but may be left feeling trapped or unsure where to go. As soon as we seek more, we come against a problem, or a brick wall or someone blocking our way. This is our test to see if this is what we truly desire.

In seeking a new way, and in our ability to let go of things that no longer are right for us, we discover a new opportunity we'd have missed had our hands been full carrying things we should have given up long ago.

So, at this New Moon we get to ask ourselves:

Are we truly ready to give up the pain of our past & present?
Are we willing to look further afield?
Do we have an open mind?
An open heart?
Are we willing to replace stagnation
with new energies
and new experiences?

Prepare for the death of one way, and the birth of a new path, a new possibility and a new power.

Neptune's current placement shows society's views on drugs, alcohol and all forms of escapism and his current passage through the technical sign of Aquarius was strongly highlighted today here in Los Angeles (and around the world of course - Aquarius is the sign of Humanity) with news of the crazed fans of the new Playstation 3 - selling at $600 a pop!

People spent 4 days sleeping outside to get one, numbers were limited but the technoholics just HAD to get their Neptunian fix of the latest technology. There was talk of extra security, people being forced to line up across parking lots from the stores and running in at opening time, gunshots, muggings and other Scorpio goings on. People were even selling them for double or more on ebay.

Such a sign that people are seeking escapism (Neptune) through technology (Aquarius) right now. Text messaging, internet chat or surfing. There will surely be more talk of impressive new "virtual reality" gaming systems. The weird thing is the PlayStation 3 has graphics so real they are virtually like reality. Strange - considering the concept of escapism is to get AWAY from 'reality' - but then we're not encouraged to kill people and we're certainly not used to seeing ghosts or waving magic wands THIS side of the veil, and this of course is the draw of these computer gaming systems. A great concept, a release of energy and safe (unless the addiction becomes too strong) but when you see society hurting itself in the race to get one to (as one guy said on the news "be cool") it really is pretty sad.

Of course today, Mars is squaring Neptune - Mars is our energy and what we do, and Neptune of course shows energy expended on escapism. Great day for lost souls seeking another high. And we could see that with the lines and lines of people waiting outside of stores to grab one of these items at a marked up price. Who cares the cost when you're a junkie, right?!

Playstation - what were you thinking releasing your system under Mercury Retrograde?!
Will you have to recall them due to a technical error or will you find you're unable to get enough to hungry customers? We'll see - but it never did anyone any good releasing technology under this transit. We'll see if you escape the inevitable tide of technology tedium under this phase.

Now, stop reading this blog - you may get addicted and we wouldn't want that. You are feeling veeeeery sleepy...

Frenetic Friday: Nov 17 Jupiter into Sag, Mercury Direct & Mars/Neptune clash

November 17 is a busy day.

Mercury finally goes Direct after being Retrograde for three weeks. We see the light at the end of the tunnel. Dec 4 marks the true end of the 'shadow period' where mercury energy is still unstable (communication, travel, mail, technology etc).
But Nov 17, things at least begin to make a little more sense. Things that were decided for sure in the past few weeks now have a way of changing AGAIN, as people's minds flip or ideas are thrown out, rejected by their lack of forethought or people have too much on their plates.

At the end there were many examples of Mercury Retrograde at play - it fell in my First House (since I have Scorpio Rising and it was in Scorpio of course) so I got to see it all play out before my eyes:

My partner took two buses on a trip because the tire blew in the first one and then the second one broke down.
My radio segment was forgotten about, and then the next week was missed again due to technical issues in the studio.
My column was posted last two weeks running online due to the company email system being down or moving slow.
I sat on my bank ATM card which snapped it.
I tried about 10 times to change an England bank account to reflect my new US address, (after numerous calls and emails it's finally happening, just in time as I need a new card issued)
I asked the Post Office to re-deliver a package but so far (nearly a week later) they seem to be avoiding doing so.
Schedules have been changed for most people I know.
My keys went AWOL for a couple of days.
ON a positive note, I did receive boxes of old books I left with a friend here in LA so I can go back and re-read a lot of ones I forgot about. Best news all week! And of course a reunion with my old friend.

Re-Re-Re = how many times have you had to go back and do over of late?

Give it til Dec 4 for major decisions and taking on new projects, if possible.

Jupiter, planet of expansion, growth, travel, knowledge and optimism enters Sagittarius, it's own sign, which intensifies the vibe. A beautiful alignment (and Sagittarians will begin to perk up too, finally). Suddenly we feel the urge for more, to travel, to learn more, to experience more of what life has to offer. So the skies will be buzzing with more peeps again, as will libraries, colleges and night classes. We want to LEARN and EXPERIENCE and we won't tolerate being cooped up any longer. We need to be free to explore - as we tap into the Gypsy energy inherent in this alignment.

Optimism and Hope return after such a dark and grim Scorpio period. Things can get better, they DO get better and oh boy, they are about to get better. The silver lining! So hang in there, there is always the same amount of light in proportion to the shadows cast, remember that, and we'll all have reason to see that things really do just 'work out'.

And finally...

Mars squares Neptune - an angle of tension between Warrior Energy and Nebulous Dreamtime. Yes we'll be fighting in our sleep, but we'll also not be able to see our waking enemies so well. The lines of battle blur - what was the original point of your anger? Forget it, forgive it and move on.
It's not the best time for concentrated focus - people have accidents around water (drowning, slipping, flooding, over-inbibing and also drugs (Overdoses, wrong doses etc). If you can, get to some water, listen to music, walk instead of driving, zone out and allow for some chill out time. Dream deeply, and switch off your brain.

Mars is energy and Neptune asks us to seek inspiration - do something that reminds you of the magic in life. Go see a movie, just don't expect to understand its plot. Seek fantasy, just don't get so lost you forget you have bills to pay. Plan, but then if you suddenly don't feel it, don't give yourself or anyone else a hard time. Drift, go with the flow, just have an anchor so you don't end up out to lunch, out to sea!

Navigate the Nebulous -
Celebrate the Spiritual!

Nov 11: 11/11 Global Healing Meditation

November 11 is a special day. Not only does it fall under the magical '11:11' vibration (research this for yourself online, 11:11 is claimed to be a wake-up call for humanity - as people see double numbers repeating) it coincides (on purpose I am sure) with a day of Global Meditation.

It goes like this: At 11am and 11pm your local time, sit and send healing energy to the planet, to yourself, and be at Peace. Know all is as it should be right here right now, in the moment. And then maybe throw in some magic for yourself (peace, harmony, health, etc). Voila!

This can shift things on a planetary scale as we all combine thought-energy for the same purpose. The Earth could use some peaceful vibes, especially during this intense Scorpio time.

Wherever you, I hope you'll join me in a few minutes at 11am and 11pm showering everything and everyone (and I mean everyone) with some amazing energy.

Your HORRORscope

For those of you who missed my Halloween Horror-scopes, you can catch them again here.

Hey, someone had to say it....

All complaints please forward to your own ego,

P.S It was a joke...jeez.

Sex Advice from Astrologers

Nerve Magazine stopped by and asked me to participate in their column 'Sex Advice from....' featuring people from all walks of life. Sex Advice from Doctors, from Skateboarders, from Single Moms, from Checkout Clerks, you name it. Great column, great people.

So it was an honor to be asked to contribute to their 'Sex Advice from Astrologers' column. You can check out it out, and see what everyone had to say here. (if it's back to the usual column when you read this, check out my main site as there's sure to be a link to the actual Astrologer's column!)

No charts were involved in the making of this column so it's as basic as you can expect to get, but a lot of fun and a great idea.

And for those of you bound to ask, yes Venus and Mars (amongst other things) can show you what you like (and don't like) in bed (or out of it, depending on your planets). Pretty cool, huh? Let me know next time you need the heads-up on a date or suitor ;-)

Enjoy! And hey - perfect time to release this under the Scorpio planetary stellium, wouldn't you say (Scorpio = sex, Venus/Mars both IN Scorpio now)? Phew.

Another note on Taurus & Nature

I forgot to mention in my previous post that the BBC spotlight a health study on Nature (That Taurus Full Moon again I mentioned in previous postings).

Here's the story on how people need to get outside more.

Free Hugs in China and Mercury's Poll Fiasco (again)

If you read my Taurus Full Moon posting, you'll have come across the suggestion:

HUG! Friends, family, strangers, anyone who'll let you! In return you'll be hugged.

It brought a smile to my face to then hear this news story:

In China, a crusade aimed at cheering up strangers received a less than friendly response when it hit the streets of Beijing, Changsha and Xian this weekend.

The Free Hugs campaign is aimed at cheering up strangers by hugging them on the street.

But, according to Beijing News, when people in the Chinese cities tried to embrace passers-by, some huggers were even hauled away by police for questioning.

How sad that in a culture where 'touching' is frowned upon, people are punished for tapping into their nurturing instincts. Good on ya, that's what I say. Congrats to the souls who tapped into the Taurus Full Moon, and reached out, and the ones who allowed themselves to experience a moment of Human Contact. Great stuff.

And in Mercury Retrograde news, surprise surprise there were technology problems. The last election fell under Retrograde (which got Bush in) and now there's computer "glitches" and even "intimidation by phone". I wonder if the elections coincide with the retrograde periods on purpose because it's so much easier to rig things. Do people truly believe they are still 'free to vote'. When you look at the Bush election you really do have to finally question if democracy was just an ideal that has had its day.

More stories as they come in!

Full Moon in Taurus: Nov 5

The Full Moon on Nov 5 falls at 12Taurus.

Taurus is the sign of Eden, Nature, sensuality, the physical world, money, values and comfort.

Since the Full Moon is the completion of a lunar cycle once more we are urged to ask ourselves "am I fulfilled in these areas, and what fruit can I look forward to harvesting here?"

Basically we either fall short of the mark or we are satisfied at Full Moons, and it often really is black or white when the Sun opposes the Moon which is always does at Full Moon time.

Quick Astro note for those who don't know: in the chart above the BLUE CIRCLE WITH THE DOT INSIDE is the Sun and across the chart the yellow curve is the Moon (that ones not hard). They lie in OPPOSITION an angle of tension. The Sun - our ego and our wants. The Moon - our unconscious and our needs. In conflict? Or both sides of the same coin?

This Full Moon we get to see how we're doing with this physical life - do we have enough money, the right bank account, are we saving enough, are our spending habits messing up our lives, creating debt or destruction or is "poverty consciousness"causing ripples (we believe we don't deserve it, fear money or feel it's evil or fear we'll never have enough).

Are we comfy in our bodies, in our jobs, in our homes, our beds, in our sex lives, in our gym routine, in our eating habits. Do we have enough sensuality - are we in touch with ourselves as physical being?

Life is full of simple pleasures we often take for granted - here in Los Angeles, I am going to map out local hiking trails because my soul is screaming for more trees, more greener, more parks and more groundedness. More baths. More comfy grounded food. More hugs, rubs and cuddles. I think I'm already tapping into this greater need on the collective front - touch is SO important to me (I have a 2nd House Moon) but I think people underestimate its power sometimes. When was the last time you were touched or gave someone a bear hug?

Are we being held enough? You'd be amazed how little we touch or are touched, leading to obsessions and desperate needs for affection - which turns into sexual compulsion, overeating (or sexual repression and anorexia). Many symptoms of the same basic human need - we are tangible beings in this realm and we need a physical experience.

Nature - a place to recharge and find serenity. It's hard to be at war with yourself or anyone else when you're at a place of beauty - in a forest, by the beach, sitting in a park with your back against a tree, lying in the grass or walking barefoot. Nature plugs us back into our eternal source of power. Is it time for a revisit?

Where are our values? What is most important? What do we care about, and what deep down do we REALLY need? Can we have it? Will we make an effort to ask for it or go after it? Are we uncomfortable and if so, why are we tolerating that? Are we settling? Are we being greedy or lazy? Can we share the wealth we already have and be grateful for the riches already present in our lives?

At this Full Moon some good ideas:

Celebrate your soul's vehicle - your body
Eat well - cook a gourmet meal, bake bread, a cake, make muffins, make it a FEAST!

Save something - bargain hunt, sale shop, go for quality not quantity, but don't pay full price!
Count what you have - add up numbers, balance your checkbook, clear debts
Know what you have, and the decide what you want and need

HUG! Friends, family, strangers, anyone who'll let you! In return you'll be hugged.
Give a massage or go get one.
Be sexual - enjoy everything about your body, and give up guilt
Value everything you do - after all it's an extension of you.
Do what makes you feel good

Sing - Taurus connects to the throat chakra and thyroid

Paint - Taurus is the sign of Art

Go Camping, hiking, for a walk in the park, to the beach, rock climbing, have a food or mud fight (Taurus is the sign of Nature)
Light scented candles, brew coffee, cuddle up under a blanket or with a teddy bear, burn incense, wear silk pajamas, listen to amazing music (taurus is the sign of indulging the senses)

This Full Moon comes with some challenges and tests.

1. The Moon opposes Venus: overindulgence or the repression of enjoyment. Are you giving in too much to your desire nature? Are you becoming inwardly 'full' with healthy experiences or outwardly 'fat' with unnecessary physical baggage based on overindulgence and 'sweetening up' your life based on a lack of love? Is laziness keeping you in a rut? Is the desire for peace, stopping you from rocking an already sinking boat?

2. The Moon opposes Mars: are we fighting ourselves through others by denying our needs and then complaining others aren't fulfilling them? Are we ignoring the simple pleasures or life or drawing no boundary in seeking satisfaction. Are we using emotional imbalance as a fuel to arguing, attacking and projecting our inner conflicts onto others? Is our quest for control wreaking havoc on our stomachs, emotions and well-being? Is it too much or not enough? We either direct energy towards achieving satisfaction now, overdoing it, or blaming others because we don't have the courage to face our needs.

3. The Moon squares Neptune: Are your emotions real or are you deluding yourself into feeling like a victim? Is this a real battle or just a fear running rampant? Are we ESCAPING - through addictive behavior or denial. Would more sleep and relaxation help? Is depression cloaking your life without you realizing it? Are you using your intuition to aid problems, and using sleep time to give yourself wisdom? Do you lack boundaries now? Is your oversensitivity stemming from being too open to the world around?
4. The Moon squares Ceres: Do we cheer ourselves up by buying things? Can we make more money by valuing ourselves more? Are we using our finances to aid our security or buy ourselves comfort? Can we use money in a safe way to nurture ourselves? Can we mother ourselves better than our blood mothers did? And is she affecting our emotional well-being now -how, and why are you letting her? You owe it to yourself to look after yourself in the best way possible - what is this way, and how are you going to start doing it?

Thankfully - the Moon sextiles Uranus - the only easy aspect this Full Moon which gives us an opportunity to reject anything that binds us to a compulsive, needy, dependent behavior pattern, and anything that keeps us stuck in the past. It simply isn't possible anymore - BUT we'll find this next two weeks that the past MUST be re-played if we're to free ourselves from it once and for all. We'll see that we aren't that person anymore, yet we may react in a similar way. We're robotic now, emotional record players repeating and skipping songs, and getting in a glitch.

Emotional ruts and repetitive and destructive behavior patterns are surfacing strongly now - you HAVE been here before and you HAVE done this before, but the question becomes HOW are you going to respond to it now.

It's simple - does it feed you and leave you feeling energized or drained? Like a healthy meal - it leaves us full, satisfied but not heavy or depleted. Is the meal you're filling yourself with continually leaving you feel stuck, unable to move and sickly or tired? If so, this Full Moon will give you a chance to face it and try a new path.

What a powerful Full Moon. With so many planets in Death-wish Scorpio, the Taurus Moon asks us to find some stability and stretch in rejecting unnecessary endings, but to welcome total transformation in the face of things that bind us to a person we no longer wish to be, and a life we no longer wish to lead.

Get comfy - and tell everything else to get lost!

Mercury Retrograde in Scorpio

We entered Mercury's retrograde "shadow" on October 9; officially it begins Oct 28 when Mercury alters his course for 3 weeks. So already we're likely to experiencing a visit from the past, along with its inherent questions, decisions, actions or results.

In Scorpio, Mercury Retrograde asks us to root around in our basements (literal or metaphorical) to see what's no longer of any use, and also what strengths we may have forgotten about. It's a time to put debts to rest by paying them back or forgiving them and writing them off.

We need a mental clean sweep as it were, dusting the Halloween cobwebs out of our heads, mouths and eyes.

How you perceive things is a reflection of your innermost beliefs and thoughts about yourself. We get to work on these now in the next 3 weeks.

Sexual questions, issues arise, along with investment queries - is our money using us or are we stuck in the fear of not having enough? Is the shadow of debt hanging over us? Are we being shady and secretive and manipulating out of insecurity?

Our ONLY power now is in how we choose to perceive things. And in how we react to events. Redefining our relation to our pasts is inevitable during Mercury Retrograde periods.

Mercury is retrograde, appearing to move backward, 2-3 times a year. Mercury retrograde times call for you to recheck everything, anticipate and plan ahead, and to relearn lessons unlearned since the last Mercury retrograde cycle. It is a good time for review and completing ongoing projects. It is NOT a time to start something new. Mercury energies involve the mind, mental processes, communication, travel, speaking, and writing. The Retrograde symbol is "Rx", the same symbol on all medical prescriptions! Physicians until the 15th century had to also be astrologers before they could practice medicine. Plan ahead for these times. So you can do preventive maintenance and schedule, here are the common things that occur, the things Mercury retrograde times are notorious for:

  • Communications go awry - phone calls, letters, emails, faxes, conversations are delayed, misinterpreted, blocked. Recheck everything like appointment times, spelling, wording, the words you say.

  • Anticipate detours - memory lapses, confusion, failing to listen, failing to confirm, negotiation failures, changing of plans.

  • Avoid signing documents, contracts if possible. You can wait 3 weeks, hopefully.

  • Expect travel delays, car trouble, delayed plane schedules, reservations that suddenly becoming "missing", transportation difficulties of all kinds.

  • Expect problems with messages, books, letters, magazines, documents, neighbors and the near environment.

  • BACK up your computer files! This is the time the screen goes blank and there is nothing there!

  • Expect the phone lines, cable lines, power lines to have problems.

Steven Forrest, author of The Inner Sky, describes Mercury retrograde well: “Mercury retrograde…isn’t ‘bad’, - it just takes some planning to cooperate with the energies. It’s meant to be spent assimilating experiences, reviewing the past, and redoing, in general. Matter of fact, if you really want to get the most out of a Mercury retrograde, confine your activities as much as possible to those that have “re” attached to the beginning of the word. Re-schedule appointments, repair vehicles, return to the past, re-write documents and agreements, etc.

Me and my Shadow: 5 planets in Scorpio!

This week we have 5 planets packed together in one sign. Known as a "stellium" it's the Universal equivalent of a showbiz spotlight or a traffic jam, as all energy is focused in one area.

With the Sun, Mercury, Venus, Mars and Jupiter in Scorpio all month long the energies of this sign permeate everything we see, hear, taste, touch and sense. The news will be packed of Scorpionic stories as our collective and individual shadows come into play. Some examples:

Death of course - Scorpio relates to the season when the leaves fall, when thngs decay, when the summer fruits rot and things once more go back to the earth ready for their rebirth. And like zombies (a Halloween favorite) the things that are of the earth rise once more from the earth. Nothing ever really "dies" per se, it just changes form, like evaporated water becoming steam, rotting fruit being reborn as food for other planets and the seeds the genetic storehouse to prolong the species.

Phoenix stories - people coming close to the brink or things that died but came back, or people who visit Hell and back and bring wisdom to share. major chapter closures and new beginnings.

Manipulation and secrets - power plays and shady goings-on.

Stay tuned for more on this - for now, remember the Scorpio Stellium is asking for a death and rebirth in some area of your life. To experience the new, you have to Let Go of something. Call it a trade.

Is it really a case of "better the devil you know"? You'll never know if you don't embrace the change, step into the fire and see what's left at the other side.

Whether you're dreaming of death, witnessing a metamorphosis in your own life, clawing away trying to keep something that is in transition or fearing the change that is here, remember that Scorpio is, as with every other sign, a process, and an energy field, and all is is asking is that we allow ourselves to shed a skin, and allow ourselves to become that we already are, underneath.
