Red Lunar Dragon Full Moon

by Alison Dhuanna, UK Astrologer

I Polarize in order to Nurture,

Stabilising Being.

I seal the input of Birth.

With the Lunar tone of Challenge

I am guided by the power of Space

The Supermoon on the 16th October illuminates the axis of Aries (Self) and Libra (Others), the polarization across the zodiac in which the Alchemical Marriage is birthed. The transformational healing energies of Chiron and Neptune continue their journey with the South Node bringing many aspects of ‘ancestral healing’ to the fore. The Moon is conjunct Uranus (the planet of revolutionary change), Eris (Holographic Mind) and Ceres the Mother Goddess increasing the potential for releasing old karma. All Karma ceases in the awakened present moment. What has been processing in this intensive time is the release of deeper levels of trauma of a catastrophe which occurred on Earth around 11500 BC of cosmic proportions. This catastrophe has led over many generations to a collective ‘attachment disorder’ to our Mother Gaia planet and a lack of trust that she can support all her peoples. This is a core wound in the collective psyche which the Goddess Asteroids are healing.

The Goddess Asteroids as ever bring a healing salve to challenging times. Hygeia and Astraea are still travelling close together in Scorpio bringing us through a process of deep transformation into alignment with cosmic cycles and sacred arts. Juno and Venus also are travelling together in the later part of Scorpio enhancing themes of beauty and unity as being the solution to the challenges we face globally. Vesta the Priestess is about to enter Leo the sign of creativity and confidence, and Pallas Athena in Aquarius falls in the 5th house of creativity. This bodes well for manifesting the Goddess frequencies in 3D. The solutions are clear and we can expect the intensity of the breakdown of the old order to increase as Mars and Pluto square the Full Moon forcing a ‘letting go’ as the Moon wanes in the next fortnight and beyond.

Life has unfolded so that my long awaited web site, which has taken 3 years to percolate is born today. This is both very exciting and daunting, but those of you who have read my blog will know I believe that global political change must accompany the spiritual movement towards unity. Our leaders as yet do not reflect this although there is hope on the horizon with the possible election of Jeremy Corbyn in the UK if he is not assassinated first. As Blue Spectral Eagle I offer a vision of a New Earth which is barely recognizable as consciousness transfigures everything we know. In future blogs I will be exploring Goddess Asteroids, Galactic Time and new languages, Human Design and the Gene Keys along with whatever else Great Spirit places in my path.

Astrology Report for October

By Dorene Carrel

October is a dynamic month, highlighted by several challenging aspects that can bring sudden changes and shifts of direction.  These aspects involve Pluto, Uranus and Mars, which can signal an intensely combative and volatile tone, along with power and control issues. However, this combination can also bring breakthroughs and a sense of empowerment. Mars is now in industrious Capricorn, which is best used for working on long-term goals in a steady step-by-step fashion. We begin this month under a recent new moon in Libra, with the focus on relationships, equality, cooperation and balance.  Jupiter’s entry into Libra last month (until October 2017) expands on these qualities, providing us with a harmonious balance to the more conflicting energies.

On October 5, a challenging square occurs between Mars in Capricorn and Jupiter in Libra.   We may be tempted to take on too much responsibility or go to some other extreme or excess at this time.  On this same day, the favorable sextile between Venus in Scorpio and Pluto in Capricorn may bring good financial opportunities.

Mercury aligns with Jupiter in Libra on October 11.  This is a good day for journaling, dreamwork, creative writing or visualization.  Our thinking is very expansive and we feel optimistic, idealistic and generous.  These feelings are also aided by a favorable Mars/Neptune sextile.   Ceres goes into Aries today, which helps us to balance issues connected with support and independence.

On October 15, the Full Moon occurs at 23 Aries.  It is aligned with Uranus and Eris, opposes Mercury, and is square to Mars and Pluto.  With the Aries-Libra polarity we are focused on balancing independence vs. cooperation with others.  Eris is a dwarf planet that is now aligned with Uranus in Aries, and together they can be volatile, but they also can bring about innovation and reform.  Mercury in Libra highlights the need for communication and coordination with others to achieve common goals.   With these challenging lunation aspects to Pluto, Uranus and Mars, we need to be watchful and prepared for earth changes or other sudden situations. The Sabian symbol keynotes for these degrees, “Openness to the influx of spiritual energies,” and “The ability to develop, for inner strengthening, new modes of response to basic life situations,” suggest a new spiritual receptivity to personal transformation.

Mars aligns with Pluto at 15 Capricorn on October 19, signifying issues connected to authority, along with power and control.  This combination forms a t-square with a Mercury/Uranus opposition, which is exact tomorrow.  A situation has been brewing for awhile that may call for some action, although it needs to be taken with caution. There may be a need to let go of old patterns, behaviors and people in order to build a more authentic foundation and move forward. This aspect can also help us use our personal power in a positive way and provide us with more stamina for achieving long-term goals.

On October 28, Mars forms a challenging square to Uranus at 22 Capricorn/Aries. These are volatile energies that can stir up unrest. We may be feeling rebellious in some life area, with a need for more freedom. It is best to strengthen our personal boundaries and avoid negative areas and people during the time when Mars/Pluto is in square to Uranus.   Also, prepare for sudden and surprising events in the outer world in mid-late October. On October 29, Venus aligns with Saturn at 14 Sagittarius, which can be a good time to re-evaluate relationships and/or finances.  Focus on the positive and make a constructive plan for improvement in these areas.

The New Moon occurs on October 30 at 8 Scorpio.  It is aligned with Mercury and makes a harmonious trine to Neptune.  Scorpio themes revolve around uncovering the shadow or hidden, taboo side, along with intensity and depth.  This lunation favors coming to terms with power issues and the release of what is not needed so we can move forward.  Mercury in Scorpio is good for research and will help us deepen our thinking to create a broader perspective. The trine to Neptune brings greater understanding and compassion for ourselves and others.  Our intuition is strengthened and we can receive important information from our meditations.  Our practice will be more favorable at this time since the spiritual veils are thinner.  The Sabian symbol for this degree, “A calm lake bathing in moonlight; a quiet openness to higher inspiration,” reinforces the powerful spiritual presence at this important time of year.

November features a stationary Neptune.  Blessings to all for a joyful autumn!

Planet Alert October 2016

Buckle up your seat belts as we move through this turbulent month of October. The sun is in Libra right now and that is a cardinal sign. The cardinal signs of Aries, Cancer, Libra and Capricorn are fast-acting and say “let’s get things done now”. October will be a month of surprising and unexpected events. The planet Uranus will be dominant this month and it is conjunct Eris, the planet of chaos. Uranus rules storms, wind, light, lightning, electricity, computers, all high tech equipment, Asteroids, and great awakenings.

The massive waves of Ascension started on September 12, 2016 when they hit Earth’s magnetic field and the Earth ‘Rang like a Bell’. These waves will continue during October. There will probably be lots of storms this month that will contain wind, lightning, or maybe even beams of light in the heavens. Some of these waves of light will be caused by Uranus, the planet of light. Uranus is in the sign of Aries which rules the head, brain, and the eyes. Some people may have challenges with their eyes, head, or brain this month.

Uranus and Neptune will be in opposition by declination all month. Uranus is male and Neptune is female. The battle between male (positive electrical) and female (negative magnetic) will continue to play out all month. We can watch this on the world scene by the debates between Trump and Hillary. What an interesting show. What have you learned by watching these candidates? Do you like the way they treat each other? Do you think either of them would make a good president? What will the outcome be, or could some surprising event happen that changes everything? Only time will tell.

There will be lots of surprises in October because that is what Uranus rules. You never know what to expect with that planet. That planet tends to take away things that you no longer need and when that is over it brings back something that you do need, which could be something wonderful. Today (September 27) I heard that an Asteroid hit in the ocean off Australia.  Asteroids are also ruled by both Uranus and Neptune. This Asteroid came down in the Pisces area of my world map, and there was a 5.7 quake in Japan, north of Australia but still in the Pisces area. Neptune rules Pisces.

Many people say that when Nemesis, our companion sun who some call Nibiru, came in with  its solar system intact, brought a lot of space junk along with it. One of them was a large Asteroid. I heard that the three rockets we sent up to the Asteroid in the past few months had nuclear warheads on them and they broke this large Asteroid into several pieces. I had also heard that an Asteroid would fall to Earth and this would happen between September 23 and 26. Well, look what just happened-one fell in the ocean off Australia. There will be more to come. No fear-you will be protected if this does happen.

In Revelation, Chapter 18 verse 21 it says “Then a mighty angel took up a stone from heaven, like a great millstone and threw it into the sea saying, so shall Babylon, the great city be thrown down with violence, and shall be found no more”. Babylon is symbolic of our corrupt ruling elite who are in the fast lane of destruction. We are in that time period right now with the remnant of that large Asteroid in our heavens. Check out this video: Alert Alert Alert more asteroid will follow.

The new moon chart for September 30, 2016 at 5:11 PM PDT has a very powerful T cross in the Cardinal signs of Aries, Libra, and Capricorn.  The sun, moon, Jupiter, and Mercury will be in Libra, Pluto and Mars will be in Capricorn, and Uranus will be in Aries. That is a very powerful planetary aspect. Mars is just at the beginning of Capricorn so it will stay in that sign all month. Saturn and Neptune are still in a square aspect to each other and this will probably cause more confusion, a spaced out feeling, or inter-dimensional events. Neptune has a reputation for confusing things.

The new moon chart has a very interesting aspect in it and that is about the Dark Moon Lilith being on 18 degrees Leo, which is the degree of Christ Consciousness. Does this mean that the Dark Moon will now be bringing in light? The meaning of the degree of this new moon is “The need to return to source during a confused search for a new value in a chaotic society?”

Mars has now moved into Capricorn and will dance all month with Pluto. Of course we all know that Mars can be a little violent at times, and Pluto is the transformer. Capricorn rules governments, corporations, leaders, organizations, houses and buildings and all structures. Look for lots of changes in all those structures.

The full moon chart on October 15, 2016 at 9:23 PM PDT shows another Cardinal T Cross. The energy will start building up to this full moon several days before it happens, and will continue for several more days. The sun will be opposing Uranus, which is still conjunct Eris, and this will probably activate chaos. This will be an extremely powerful full moon. Libra rules relationships so there will probably be challenges in that area. Some relationships will break up and new ones will appear. Jupiter is also in Libra and will be there for one year. Libra also rules lawyers, clothes, pretty things, the liver and balance. It’s now time to find the balance within us so we can manifest Unity Consciousness.

Mars will be affecting Washington, D. C. at the time of the full moon on October 15/16 when the sun will be opposing the Uranus/Eris conjunction. A few days later Mars will be affecting New York and the financial center there, along with the United Nations. What will this bring? Mars and Pluto will also be affecting the whole East Coast area so there could possibly be a large natural disaster in that area such as another storm, or maybe one of those space pieces will fall into the ocean off the East Coast.

There have been many storms and lots of flooding along the East and SE Coast of the United States because Pluto has been stationary over that area for a long time. Now Pluto will also have the energy of Mars along with it. The opposite side of the world is China and they have had massive flooding from the many storms that have come into their country. They will also have more storms, and there will be more storms and floods all over the world, possibly caused by hurricanes or cyclones.

We do live in interesting times. Find peace within and stay in your center as we go through this turbulent time. Find the joy in life and be grateful for everything you have.  It’s time to live on the New Earth in Unity consciousness with everyone helping each other. Love conquers all. No fear. See you on 5D  Earth. So Be It!

Planet Alert September 2016

Are you ready to move out of the Matrix and be free from control? Are you enjoying the chaotic energy that seems to be affecting everyone these days? Some people are really happy and others are depressed and in chaos. There have been a lot of changes and transformation occurring, and it has been a challenge to stay in a neutral state of mind as people around us are becoming unbalanced. This energy seems to be up one day and down the next. This is due to the intense waves of energy that are affecting Earth right now.

We just entered the month of September with a solar eclipse and eclipses affect a lot of people. It is like the light is dimmed for a period of time. The solar eclipse was on September 1, 2016. And in numerology this day adds up to a number one because (9+1+9) =19 or 1. Number one indicates a new beginning in some way. There was a wave of energy that hit us on August 30th a little before the eclipse. I felt this energy very strongly and it made me dizzy. The effects of this wave were felt up until the eclipse on September 1st.  There are more energy waves to come as we move through September.

There was a T cross in the heavens at the time of this past solar eclipse.  The sun and moon were in Virgo, Neptune was in Pisces and Saturn was in Sagittarius. Neptune is the planet of illusion and brings in new time-lines and other dimensional events. Maybe you are seeing people from the other side, or maybe you have had a lost time event, or maybe you just feel out of energy and don’t want to do anything. If so, you are feeling Neptune energy. The energy from this eclipse will continue for several months.

This past eclipse was on nine degrees Virgo. This degree means “The growth of true understanding, born out of the transcendence of duality even while immersed in the world of duality”. Basically this means that it is time to let go of any baggage you are still carrying around with you. Look at your old events with new eyes and change your perception of how you perceived these events. Look at it in a different way and change your image of it. Change how you perceived it and that will change your life for the better.

The next eclipse will be a lunar full moon on September 16, 2016. There we have the number 16 again. We have been experiencing the number 20 and 16 all year. The number 20 Tarot card is Judgment, and the number 16 card is The Tower Struck with Lightning where everything changes and structures collapse. We have really experienced that energy all year. Look at how many changes have occurred in your life, and look at how many houses and structures have collapsed in earthquakes, floods, fires and volcanic eruptions.

This upcoming lunar eclipse will bring in the energy of the number16 and that will be a double whammy. It is also on the degree of “Mary and her little lamb which means that we will need to keep a vibrant and pure simplicity at the core of our being as we meet the many tests of existence”. We will start feeling the energy of nonviolence in our world. Let there be peace in the world and let it begin with me.

At this lunar eclipse the sun will be conjunct Mercury in opposition to the moon and Chiron, the healing planet. Mars will be on the degree of consciously accepting the ways of a new stage of experience, in readiness for the opportunities it will present. That sounds good to me.

The planet Mars will be in a trine to Uranus, which is still conjunct the dwarf planet Eris on the full moon eclipse. Both Uranus and Eris have a tendency to stir things up. I think the energy affecting Donald Trump will be very challenging from the solar eclipse to the lunar full moon. Mars will be opposing his Uranus, north node, and his sun. This energy will also affect Hillary in a challenging way. We’ll see how this strong energy works out for both of them.

This upcoming full moon will really stir up the energy. It is up to us how we respond to the energy that is presented to us. We can respond in a positive way or in a negative way.  Shortly after this full moon we will have the Fall Equinox on September 22ndand Mercury goes direct on that day. The sun enters into the sign of Libra to join Jupiter which will be in that sign for one year. Libra is known as a peaceful sign. There is always an energy surge that comes in at the time of the solstices and the equinoxes. Scientists have measured this energy and have proven there actually is a measurable energy surge at that time.

I believe the Earth itself will be jumping a time-line sometime between mid – September and the end of the month. Others say by the end of this year. Those who are ready will move and actually live on 5D earth. Many of us have been manifesting 5D consciousness and higher already but we have been living in a lower vibration Earth. It’s my understanding that 6D is the energy of magic and miracles. If you have been experiencing miracles in your life than you are living in 6D consciousness. The energy of sound is 7D energy and we all have sound around us in one way or another. Pretty music is very relaxing. When we reach 8D we will be out of the Matrix and free to explore and live in a different way.

We jumped a time-line in 1987 when we moved into 4D. That dimension has been very hard to go through and it has taken us a long time. That is the psychic realm and the realm of the controllers. It’s like the astral realm where anything can happen. The 3D and 4 D realms are where the wars and violence exist. We will move out of that dimension shortly. When we are out of 4D, wars will cease to exist.

Then we have the continuing Earth changes that are getting stronger every year.  There have been lots of storms and flooding all over the world and these storms will continue to happen, especially along the East Coast USA and China. We are also in the time of fire because of Mars, Saturn and Uranus in fire signs.

What else is in our heavens that could be causing a lot of these changes?  Could it be Planet X?  Many people claim to have seen, and have pictures of this planet next to our sun. I was sent a very interesting video about Planet X causing the full moons in June, July, and August to turn blood red. Now we have another full moon eclipse coming up on September 16th. Will this moon turn blood red also? Could this be the real prophecy of four blood moons in a row? Watch this video and see what you think. Type into your  search engine  “Blood Red Moon and Nibiru Aug 21 video“.

We do live in interesting times! It is so important to keep yourself cool, calm and collected as these events come to pass. These energy waves can come in and cause all kinds of ascension symptoms in our bodies that are sometimes hard to deal with at the time. Just remember that you will make it through these waves although it is easier to do so if you are in a state of serenity. May you be blessed with lots of loving people in your life and may joy fill your heart to overflowing.  My love to you,   So Be It!  Mahala Gayle

Happy birthday to me (Sept 13th) and to other Virgos, may you be blessed with a wonderful year to come.

New Moon Eclipse Cycle

Guest article by Alison McCabe

The energies in this next moon cycle are very intense and this is good news because the pressure is mounting to transform. Recently I read a fascinating article on Tom Kenyon’s website entitled ‘The Spiral of Ascension class handout’ where he refers to the work of Professor John Curtis Gower who has written a book Operations of Increasing Order which explains human evolution through the lens of quantum physics. In a nut shell the second law of thermo-dynamics says that the universe is a closed system where entropy or chaos is increasing. Human beings on the other hand have evolved to create order from this chaos and it is at intense periods of chaos that we have the greatest evolutionary potential for quantum leaps in consciousness.

This New Moon Annular Eclipse on the 1st September is in the sign of Virgo the Earth Goddess and in a challenging T-square to Neptune, South Node and Chiron opposite in Pisces and square to Saturn and Mars in Sagittarius. Neptune and Saturn are exactly square which is potentially very tricky. At this time we may feel our dreams are being dashed against the rocks and we may feel despair at what is happening around us as the chaos intensifies. Imagine in our collective progress we are near the top of a mountain and a storm comes in. Its time to take shelter, to take care of ourselves and others. Saturn’s challenge asks us to put into practical steps, to create the structures to support the dream. Steam which is the nebulous power of Neptune will simply dissipate without the engine of Saturn it could potentially power.

The Goddess asteroids provide keys to move into the new consciousness and often may seem counter intuitive. Venus, Astraea Goddess of the Sacred Arts and Hygiea Goddess of natural rhythms of nature are all in Libra and ask us to focus on beauty and taking care of ourselves. Are we living in the increasing pressure of manmade time or are we living in galactic time? Most of us reading this are living in both and now we need to really step back from the rat race and use intention, dreaming and art in many forms to vision the New Earth and connect strongly with her incredible beauty and vitality. Vesta is in Cancer and opposing Pluto so women in spiritual roles may come under attack from the patriarchy at this time. Vesta in Cancer asks us to remember that she is Goddess of the Hearth of the home. Spirituality is not something that belongs to the patriarchy or in buildings of any kind exclusively. Spirituality begins in our own home, with our own family and friends maintaining the sacred bonds of community. We may create rituals to ensure this. When we take care of each other in small groups this resonates out into the world.

At Brexit both Ceres and Eris were conjunct Uranus and Eris is still there and Cres has moved into Taurus. Perhaps the most important message of this eclipse cycle is our deep need to tune into the Sovereignty of the Earth Goddess and her ancient and new frequencies. My feeling from the work I’ve done with Eris is that she is an important part of our evolutionary process in our brains being able to grasp the holographic nature of reality. Time does not exist, we are all but grains of sand which is a humbling thought in multiple parallel universes. New Earth already exists, she is vibrant and alive the way she was before humans started their ignorant plunder. We must turn to our elders on this planet the Indigenous people for vital information on how to live properly upon the Earth. I urge you if you have not already to watch the film Aluna which is a message from the Kogi people of Columbia.

Tom Kenyon has recently released some free healing music specifically channelled to help people at this time. In 9 minutes a day you can tune into these multi-dimensional frequencies in a powerful way through sound healing and stay chilled in what looks to be a stressful time ahead. There is a global project to listen each day for 40 days so please check it out at

Astrology Report for September

Guest article by Dorene Carrel from AstroConnections.

September is a very active month, highlighted by a Solar Eclipse in Virgo and Lunar Eclipse in Pisces.  There will also be two planetary stations (Mercury and Pluto), along with two New Moons, and Jupiter changing signs from Virgo to Libra. Growth through relationships is a strong theme. As the month begins, Mercury is retrograding in Virgo until September 21, allowing us time to review and make corrections along the way.  Communicate clearly to avoid misunderstandings. The Fall Equinox occurs on September 22, providing an energy boost for important new beginnings.

This month has a relatively rare occurrence of two New Moons that bookend the first and last days of the month.  On September 1, the New Moon Solar Eclipse occurs at 9 Virgo.  This lunation aligns with the North Node, opposes Neptune, squares Mars/Saturn and trines Pluto.  As a square to Mars is found in all three lunations this month, this is a volatile and dynamic month that calls for both caution and personal courage.  The Eclipse and North Node provide a high growth potential, allowing us to more easily release the Saturn/Neptune traits of denial, guilt, blame and victimhood, and emphasize the higher Virgo traits of discernment and purification. Pluto will assist us in taking a deeper approach.  On a more practical level, we can clean out and recycle what is old and outworn, as well as volunteer our services. The Sabian symbol for this degree, “Two heads looking out and beyond the shadows,” indicates the transcendence of duality and growth of true understanding.

On September 9 Jupiter enters Libra for the next thirteen months.  Jupiter tends to amplify both the highest and lowest traits of the sign it is in.  There will be more focus on relationships, equality, diplomacy and cooperation, while the shadow side can bring more intense competition and indecisiveness.

The last exact square of Saturn and Neptune occurs on September 10, which is also amplified by the Solar Eclipse (see above).  At this time it’s easier to get stuck in the emotions of despair and disillusionment. However, if we can release our fears and perceive the higher purpose in our life events, we will have come a long way.

The Full Moon, Lunar Eclipse occurs on September 16 at 24 Pisces.  It aligns with Chiron, opposes Mercury and squares Mars.  Since this lunar eclipse is in a water sign, it accentuates our feelings and emotions. Chiron can bring an emotional healing experience, while Mercury helps us to form meaningful concepts and ideas. We may become more aware of increased sensitivity, along with the need to honor our boundaries.  There is an opportunity to deepen our higher intuitive senses for receiving inner guidance.  The Sabian symbol keynotes for these degrees, “The social acknowledgment of a job well done and a destiny fulfilled,” and “The power of the Soul to intervene in the personal life and to induce necessary catharses,” speak to the potent evolutionary energies of these two eclipses.

On September 21, Mercury turns stationary direct at 15 Virgo.  This is followed by the Autumn Equinox on September 22 and a Sun/Jupiter conjunction in Libra on September 25.  Certain ideas and plans may have been incubating within us the past month that can now be moved forward into the outer world. We see our life from a broader perspective and are more likely to feel optimistic about the future. Pluto turns stationary direct on September 26 at 15 Capricorn, which can signal a powerful period of transition and transformation.  On September 27, Mars enters Capricorn, allowing us to take action in the world with more discipline, structure and organization.

The second New Moon occurs on September 30 at 8 Libra.  It is aligned with Jupiter, Neptune, Mars, Pluto and Saturn.  Libra rules partnerships and its themes include striving for balance, equality, fairness and diplomacy.  Neptune attunes us to our higher ideals, while allowing us to move beyond illusion and deception.  Jupiter helps us see everything from a broader perspective.  Mars and Pluto can assist us to release outmoded beliefs getting in our way, while Saturn helps us stay grounded and on track.   The Sabian symbol for this degree, “Three ‘old masters’ hanging on the wall of a special room in an art gallery; the need to return to source during a confused search for new value in a chaotic society,” suggests that it is favorable to turn to our spiritual practices of meditation, journaling, yoga, etc. to help us absorb the spiritual downloads from the eclipses and other dynamic transits of this month.

October features a New Moon in Scorpio for Halloween.  Blessings to all!

The Sovereign Goddess

by Alison Dhuanna

As we enter the year of the Blue Spectral Storm there are many layers unfolding and beneath the chaos and uncertainty of British politics and indeed the world power dynamics lies the awakening of the Goddess of Sovereignty. In previous blogs I have spoken of the Goddess Asteroids Pallas Athena and Ceres, Ceres being discovered the exact same day Britain was legally formed on the 1st January 1801. Eris is a Kuiper Belt object whose frequency is connected to the Asteroid Belt Goddesses and yet is of a more holographic and otherworldly nature.

I first encountered Eris awakening in myself around a year ago. I had been working through The Ladies of the Lake by Caitlin and John Mathews in my creative writing class and had reached the sixth of nine Ladies of Celtic Mythology Enid. Enid is a Goddess/priestess of the Sovereignty of the Land and her blessing has to be bestowed upon the true rulers. Her tests are vigorous and challenging indeed and when she is won by her husband Erec in the Sparrow Hawk contest he has to undergo life threatening tests of love and loyalty. At this time the opportunity to work shamanically with Birds of Prey also unfolded meeting Falconer Silvia Mutterlee who has just completed her dissertation on Healing with Birds of Prey and Eris seems to have a special connection to the very focussed and intense energy of these bird and to the prophesies of Native America of the Return of the Bird Tribes.

At the time of the Brexit vote Ceres was conjunct both Uranus and Eris in Aries and at the New Moon 2nd August is again. Ceres has now returned to Taurus the sign where she was discovered. Eris is currently at 23 degrees Aries conjunct Uranus the planet of unexpected and revolutionary transformation. Underlying the very polarised response of ordinary people to Brexit which will greatly accelerate the breakdown of current global structures leading to chaos, there is also an underlying spiritual awakening of true sovereignty.

Enid like many dark goddess archetypes initially is a horse hand cleaning stables and wearing rags when Eric asks her to be his partner in the Sparrowhawk contest. Only after many initiations is the true nature of Enid revealed and at her wedding her cloak is described thus “The fur lining that was sewn into it was from strange beasts that have completely blond heads and necks as black as mulberries and backs that are bright red on top, with black bellies and indigo tails.” She is clothed in a silk, red dress by Guinevere suggesting that her status also needs to be recognised by another Priestess. These alchemical colours of the Goddess Black, White and Red are very important. In my Goddess Asteroid women’s circle when we journeyed to Eris many of the women experienced her as red and also having cat like features. She reminded me of Sekhmet in character as she has both an extremely fierce nature but is also loving to those who honour freedom. Eris asks us to honour our own sovereignty. Every choice we make has an effect and we can take things to whatever limit we choose. Eris also felt very holographic and multi-dimensional to many who experienced her in this journey.

Last week somebody told me that Jose Arguelles wife Stephanie South calls herself The Red Queen and has written a book called ‘Accessing your Multi-Dimensional Self’. I haven’t read it yet as UK Amazon have sold out but it is wonderful to comprehend that a living archetype of Eris may be living here upon the Earth and sharing her experiences assisting us in connecting more closely with the quantum universe. There are so many indicators and synchronicities too of the weaving of the Native American and Celtic fractal lines into a unified field of consciousness. I have started doing an apprenticeship with don Carlos Miro Quesada called The Path of the Universal Shaman and this unified spiritual vision of the world feels very right to me. Honouring the Sovereignty of the land through song, works of art and creating beauty restores balance and just like Eris the Earth needs us to acknowledge her beauty. In the Arthrurian mysteries it is Enid and not Guinevere who is the true Queen and she is honoured with a kiss from King Arthur after he successfully hunt the White Stag who represents purity and royalty. There are lessons for us here about who the true rulers of Earth actually are. We all have an Eris within us and may step into our true purpose as Guardians of Mother Earth practicing the Indigenous ways in which our ancestors of all nations kept balance and harmony.

I’d like to thank and acknowledge my friend and co-astrologer Margaret-Mary Archer whose emails alerted me to the activates of Eris which I have shared today. Together with a Kinesiologist Shanaz we have planned a very exciting retreat on the Sacred Isle of Anglesey, Wales from the 17-21st October. Only recently I discovered the retreat centre we booked Glan Morfa is a stone’s throw away from Aberffraw the ancient Royal Seat of the Celtic rulers who honoured the Sovereignty of the Goddess. On the retreat we will be creating a mandala from our Mayan Dreamspell chart and I will be playing Gong Baths each day to journey into the cosmic realms. These will be done as Pachakuti Mesa rituals to Earth’s core, Sun and the Hunab Ku anchoring the song of evolution as it flows into our jewel of a planet. Creating a Dreamspell mandala is a very potent way of activating your individual sovereignty and that of the land. My feeling is that it is vitally important to hold and nurture the seed of the new British Isles as a spiritual entity with the 4 directions of England, Scotland, Wales and Ireland and the Isle of Man in the centre which has always been independent. If you feel a calling to this retreat in the UK please get in touch soon at Cost is £360 including food and accommodation in a room of your own in a stunning eco-nature park close to beautiful beaches and the sea.

Next May I will be working with Silvia Mutterlee and her healing birds Freay the Buzzard and Morgan the Eagle Owl with the energies of Eris, doing fly walks and shamanic practices in the Pachakuti Mesa shamanic tradition so please also get in touch about that if it calls you. Dates are 19-21st May and cost is £170 taking place in the Pennines, West Yorkshire.

Planet Alert August 2016

Hi everyone, I have an idea on how to solve our problem of anger and violence. We could create with our minds some magical sparkly Fairy Dust and spread it all over the world so people could feel it and maybe wake up to the magic and miracles of 6D Earth. Wouldn’t that be fun? It has been so hard for empaths to live in the world as we have known it for so long that it is time for a change.  We are the ones who need to change it by using our thought power to create the reality we choose to live in. I choose to live in a reality of love and peace. This is the reality I am creating for myself. Let there be peace in the world and let it begin with me.

Did you release all you needed to release during Mars’s trip back into Scorpio in June and July? Are you now ready to drop your baggage and manifest a new reality? During that two month period of time Mars was in a mirror image to Uranus, and that caused a lot of violence over the Middle East and Europe. Now Mars will be affecting Pakistan, Afghanistan, and India. The opposite side of the world that will be affected by Mars are the states from the Cascade Mountains to the Mississippi River.  Are you ready for the Mars journey through Sagittarius for the next two months? This ushers in a period of powerful fire energy. Negative fire energy rules violence, wars, fires and volcanic eruptions. Positive fire energy is the spark of love within us.

Saturn is also in Sagittarius, and Mars and Saturn together usually manifest a hard, unsympathetic attitude, and trouble or conflicts with authority figures or government agencies. This energy rules legal affairs or government administration problems. It also rules the military. Sagittarius rules the banking system.

All planets have a positive and negative side to them just like we do. We have the choice of either manifesting positive or negative energy. So, do you think we can negate some of that negative energy from Mars and Saturn and use it is a positive way? Mars rules energy and Saturn brings rewards to us once we have learned the lessons it teaches us. If many people manifest the negative energy of Mars and Saturn, then there will be more chaos on Earth in the next two months.

We have been witnessing a lot of chaos in the United States with our election drama. I try to watch it in observer mode so I don’t get angry with how the candidates are treating each other. Two candidates have been selected to run for president. They are Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump. I have had a strong feeling for months now that the election will not go as planned. What could go wrong? I have no idea if something will happen or not, although that feeling is still there for me.

It looks like Donald Trump will have a very hard time during this Mars/Saturn time period that lasts for all of August until the end of September. Mars and Saturn will be opposing his Sun, North Node, and Uranus. That is a very hard aspect to deal with and will probably bring him a lot of challenges, and possibly anger or violence directed toward him.

Hillary is a very strong woman. She has four planets, plus her node, in Scorpio which is a very powerful sign and her Mars, Pluto and Saturn are all in the fire sign Leo. So far she has had the ability to come through anything that has been thrown at her. She definitely has the strength to hold the job of president, although expect the unexpected because Uranus is also in that mix of planets.

Did you know that Saturn rules and holds in check all of the planets in our solar system except Uranus, Neptune and Pluto?  Vedic Astrology does not use those three planets in their system. Western Astrology uses all the planets in their system. I always wondered why Vedic Astrologers did not use the outer planets. Now I know why after watching David Icke’s latest video on Saturn.  I had been thinking about the Matrix a lot lately and this video has a lot of answers to my questions. Here is the link to his video: Saturn Isn’t What You Think It is Either.

He says that Saturn rules the number 8 and so do a lot of numerologists. The word God (7+6+4=8) adds up to the number 8. We are in the month of August which is also a number 8. The Lion’s Gate always opens during this month. Could this month open up a gateway to Saturn, or to the Gods? Could it also open up the energy of 8D, which is the dimension of the mind? We opened up to 7D on May 21, 2016 when the Sun was conjunct Alcyone, the central Sun of the Pleiadian system. That sun is always in the Photon Belt, which is 7D energy. I’ve heard that our Earth is the 8th planet in the Pleiadian system.

We have been under the control of Saturn for eons of time. The negative controllers set up their system of control on Saturn and use the rings around it as their communication system. Then they send that energy to the moon and then to Earth according to the video. It’s like in the Wizard of Oz, when they looked behind the curtain there was a man who controlled everything. It was all an illusion. It’s time to take off our blinders and become free. We do not need to be controlled anymore. The energy of Mars and Saturn together for the next two months in a fire sign will give us the opportunity to look beyond the curtain. What will we see?

The dark ET controllers used to have a base on the Handle of the Big Dipper. They used that base to control this part of the Solar System. In August of 2011 ships from Arcturus destroyed that base and broke their control. The Arcturians are the guardians of our solar system. We asked for their help and they came. This was the start of the controllers going down.

I watched the movie The Matrix again to see if there were any clues in it that tells us how to get out of the illusion. I think we just need to wake up and realize we live in a false reality and it is time for a new reality. Our minds are very powerful, and with many people working together we have the possibility of breaking through this illusion during this time period. Then we can be ready for the energy of Christ Consciousness to manifest in September. September is a number 9 month, and we have 9-9-9 three times in September. We are also in a nine year getting ready to go into a number 1 year, or new beginning in 2017.

Which reality or dimension do you live in? Maybe we are living in multiple realities at the same time. Have you heard of the Mandala affect?  Here is another interesting video: Top 5 Mandela Effects | Is something editing history?

Expect the unexpected, and stay in love energy as we are going through this challenging time. Not everyone is ready for the new Earth. I don‘t know how many people are ready to move into a new reality at this time, although for those of us who have been holding the light for so many years, and are exhausted from doing that, we are ready to manifest something better. Lets fill our life with laughter, it’s time for some fun in our lives. So Be It!

Astrology Report for August

By Dorene Carrel at AstroConnections.

August is a moderately active month, highlighted by three planetary stations that include Saturn, Mercury and the dwarf planet Ceres.  The Saturn station in mid-month allows us to achieve more stability and focus.  This is welcome after the dynamic,  wilder energies of July that brought some unexpected and unsettling changes.   Later in the month, Mars in Sagittarius will align with Saturn and square Neptune, which can help us follow our ideals and accomplish important tasks.  The challenge will be to stay positive and focused, as it will be easier to get distracted.

The New Moon occurs on August 2 at 11 Leo. This month will emphasize being more self-expressive, creative, generous and self-confident.  The shadow side of Leo is being arrogant and self-centered.  The harmonious trine to Saturn will help to keep us on a productive track.  The Sabian symbol for this degree, “Children play on a swing hanging from the branches of a huge oak tree,” suggests that we honor new emerging forces as well as the power of tradition.

Also on this day, Mars makes its final move from Scorpio to Sagittarius, where it will travel for the next two years. It already made a brief visit into Sagittarius from March to May.  Mars is more energetic and assertive in this fiery sign, which will encourage more risk-taking.  There will be a desire for more freedom and expanded horizons.   The areas of philosophy, education, travel and recreation will also become more popular and have innovative trends.

The shadow period of Mercury retrograde begins on August 10.  In my experience, the potential for unexpected changes, delays, etc., at that time is nearly as potent as the retrograde cycle itself.  Be careful to communicate clearly and check all important documents for possible errors.  Mercury will turn retrograde on August 30.  See below for more details.

On August 13, Saturn turns stationary direct at 10 Sagittarius.  It has been retrograde since last March, which may have brought a re-evaluation of our priorities. Today Saturn also forms a challenging square to Venus in Virgo.  It may be hard to come to an agreement now in our relationships, or we may feel isolated and misunderstood.  Saturn can help us to stay focused on our true personal goals and plan steps to their achievement.  Also on August 13, Jupiter in Virgo forms a quincunx aspect to Uranus, allowing us to make important adjustments in our openness to change and innovation.  Venus aligns with the North Node on August 15 and trines Pluto on August 17, which favors making positive advancement in our relationships.

The Full Moon occurs on August 18 at 26 Aquarius.  It aligns with the asteroid Pallas and forms a harmonious sextile to Uranus.  With the Aquarian emphasis, this lunation opens us to see a clearer path to making positive changes in our lives.  Pallas brings new ideas in the form of pattern perceptions that may provide important insights.

We can better see how our unique talents can benefit humanity and our personal community.  The Sabian symbols for these degree areas, “After the heavy storm, a rainbow,” and “A garage man testing a car’s battery with a hydrometer,” suggest that after a period of testing, we will now begin to see benefits and rewards.  Some calendars list this Full Moon as a lunar eclipse.  However, according to the Mountain Astrologer, replies to their inquiries from NASA experts indicate that this lunation is a “near miss” and does not qualify as an eclipse.

On August 24-25, Mars aligns with Saturn and squares Neptune in Pisces.  The aspect with Neptune can heighten our intuition, but also encourage illusion and deception.   Mars/Saturn is also in a challenging sesquiquadrate aspect with Uranus, which can increase the chance for accidents and volatile events.  It is best to be cautious and alert during this period, although it is favorable for accomplishing detailed tasks if one can stay focused.

Mercury turns stationary retrograde on August 30 at 29 Virgo.  It will travel backward through Virgo until September 22, when it turns direct at 15 Virgo.  It is best to postpone signing contracts or making important purchases during this cycle. It is a period of introspection when it is best to cut back on a busy schedule and live more simply.  These weeks can best be spent reviewing, researching and taking a spiritual retreat.   Ceres stations on August 31, helping us to make improvements to our diet and lifestyle.  This is a good time for self-nurturing, as well as to give and receive support in our significant relationships.    Blessings for a joyful summer!
