Recently many people have been asking me about how these changes can work when they feel lost, or stuck. I say that you really are not lost, or stuck, even though it feels like that! Truthfully, you are in transition and as with any shift, even with diets, we hit a plateau. In the world of internal change, this can feel stuck or lost. Recognizing anything is called an “A-HA” moment. When we recognize an internal sadness or discomfort, we can begin to see that it’s time for change. It’s important to feel what we are experiencing. That alone can change the old cellular patterns just by acknowledging that you’re ready to move forward, and sometimes that comes with the sensation of feeling alone, lost, stuck, unaccepted, disappointed with life, not understood, etc. If we are able to shift the perspectives as we feel these emotion, we will feel the internal support that will get us through these ominous times.
When I read people and where they are energetically, I witness each person on a verge of some change. My Cherokee mentor of 12 years, Karen Land, used to say there are 2 ways to get things done in this world.. the easy way and the hard way! When we feel these shifts occurring, we may take the hard road , not because we want it that way consciously, but because it pulls in a stronger meaning to some people to know you are capable, consistent, and sometimes, a diehard!
Yet, we have to ask ourselves if that is even truly necessary in the way of shifting gears in our lives. Most of the time, you’ll find it really isn’t. We look back on our experiences and have to ask ourselves why we did the things we did in the past, even though that was the best we knew at the time! So now here we are. A new experience is happening that will change you forever from the past to the internal moment of now…. but how?
Your experiences are your own, however, it’s a small world and sooner or later you come across someone who resonates to the same thing you’ve been through! You learn by listening to what they did in their situation, and either feel that you could do what they did, or just basically say, “I’m glad I didn’t have to go through that!” Either way, this synchronistic occurrence is a blessing at the time you are in the throws of change. So here are a few pointers for abiding by these changes for your own internal shifting, which all roads leads to Self Empowerment!
- Be OK with the changes you feel and recognize them.
- Realize that you are “being prepared” by letting go internally to the things that do not work in your life anymore.
- Know that internal dialogue is important and be the observer as you experience these emotional changes.
- Be watchful so as to not judge yourself, you are now re-creating the real you to become the master of your own thoughts, decisions, ideas, and mostly, your soul’s satisfaction.
- Remember that the old ways don’t support you. Blame, anger, guilt, etc. are unproductive emotions and cannot move you forward ,and they certainly do not create empowerment.
- Pay attention to others and see that you are not alone.
- Give yourself credit in all you’ve learned, and know you are coming into the best time of your life by being patient, and observant.
- Go with what makes you feel alive and passionate!
- See life as a purpose, not that you have to have a purpose to be alive.
- Love is everywhere, we are just re-designing it for ourselves!
Self Empowerment is front and center! I did a channeling in December of last year, and the information that came through says it best. “2015 will be like kneading the dough. You knead the dough and add all of the good ingredients and create a consistency that will rise. Add the spices, the salt, the yeast, the enjoyment of the kneading. Then in 2016, we’ll put the bread in the oven as it solidifies into more awareness. In 2017, you eat the bread you made.
So let’s make this tasty and create the reality of who we are, without judgment, only with an understanding that all is in perfect divine timing. Empowerment is about trust in yourself. It is also about listening and realizing that you are capable of doing anything you put your heart into! Receive new things and take back the power that is yours, and not someone else’s.
Did you know that when you abide by these wonderful feelings and conditions, that the old conditions that caused illness will not have a place in our body? It’s natural law….As above, so below!
Here’s to you!! Here’s to us, and to our world as we really become ONE inside and out!! Mona~
Guest article by Alison McCabe.
In the emerging energies following the Solar and Lunar eclipses both Hygeia and Astraea seemed very important. In this blog I shall focus on Hygeia but keep an eye out on Planet Alert for a further blog about Astraea. My research into Hygeia has revealed that the day I am writing this is her birthday as she was discovered 12th April 1849 in Naples by Annibale de Gasparis who discovered Nine asteroids.
Hygeia is in the main asteroid belt and is the fourth largest asteroid, however because of her distance from the sun and the dark matter of her mantle she is very hard to see. This seems very apt for a Goddess of Healing Dreams that she has herself a certain intangible quality. Also she has a very low density more like Jupiter than a rocky planet. She rotates very slowly every 27 hours and possibly in a retrograde direction which again feels important that her energy is very much about the healing power of rest and slowing down.
Hygeia is one of the daughters of Asclepius the Father of Medicine who learnt his trade from Chiron. The word ‘ hygiene’ comes from Hygeia. She has a sister Panacea who is also an asteroid body and together they are the breasts of Rhea the Earth Mother. In this sense Hygeia could be said to have a strong connection to the breasts and their healing powers through erotic love and nurturing milk. As women we may be aware of this special power of healing when we hold a child, animal or a lover to our breast. In Greece Hygeia had healing temples where people would come with their ailments and problems. Hygeia and her priestesses would provide comfort and a place to rest deeply and it was through dreams that people found their healing.
Hygeia has been present on my Solar Fire software for a while but not really calling me strongly in chart readings. I had done a group of children’s charts in Steiner School about a year ago and felt more that Hygeia was an emerging energy as she was very strongly placed in their charts. However following the equinox eclipse she was making herself very known as if awakening from a deep sleep herself.
In the days following the Total Solar Eclipse the first Goddess chart reading I did was for a guy in Portland who had some very interesting Aquarian Goddess influences. That night as I slept though Hygeia came to me to say I had missed her (she was in the hidden 12th house) and that she was aligned to the Great Central Sun Sirius in this particular chart. On awakening I checked and so it was, and the great thing is Hygeia is now once again in Cancer and approaching conjunction with Sirius again. Hygeia works through dreams and invisible forces and it feel very much to me that she is communicating an important message from the Greater Central Sun which is as simple as ‘allow yourself to rest and heal, get off the conveyor belt of doing, trying so hard and trust that all is unfolding’. For many of us this may mean some adjustments in what we feel we need to have a happy life and paring back to what we truly value. However it is also true that creative energy can generate just as much abundance as the work, work, work philosophy. Hygeia also has a strong connection to Alcyone as Venus was aligned to this star on the day she was discovered. Hygeia very much seems to embody an important evolutionary impulse from both Sirius and Alcyone.
The Sabian Symbol for 6 degrees Libra where Hygeia was discovered is “A Man Watches His Ideals Taking A Concrete Form Before His Inner Vision: the need to visualise clearly one’s dreams or ideals in order to make them truly effectual. Over the period of the past 6 months one of my groups has been working creatively with the Nine Ladies of the Lake of Celtic mythology in the legends of King Arthur. These Ladies are often invisible forces, often maligned and misunderstood by the patriarchy but they are the main protagonists and catalysts for the unfolding events in the world of men. During this time Nine holes of Dark Matter were found in our solar system and this was another reminder that it is invisible forces that shape the unfolding story and we would be wise to pay attention to these.
I had many synchronistic connections with Hygeia following the latest eclipses including having the same dream as my partner at the same time where we were feasting with Hygeia! On the other side of the world in America it seems Hygeia was very active too. Whilst I was doing the chart reading in the UK bees were starting to accumulate in the front door cove of the guy I was reading for, hundreds of them. This was also the same day there was a massive solar flare aimed at Earth which caused a lot of disruption in the electromagnetic field (26/03/15). From the description a Queen Bee may well have taken up home with him and his wife right outside the front door. Hygeia it seems may well carry the energy of bees and one element which definitely seems to have changed since the eclipse is that people seem to be communicating much more psychically with each other as if we are tuned in on an invisible level. I would be interested to hear if anybody else is experiencing an increase in this type of telepathic communication, which the bees do so effortlessly through their smells and dances? If you didn’t read my blog on mushrooms go back and have a look because mushrooms seem very much the bees of the plant kingdom.
Hygeia as a healing goddess of dreams seems to me very much connected with the deeper and invisible functions of health. I’ve been really convinced in the last few years that attuning to the day and night cycle is a vital first step in reconnecting to cosmic energies and the natural vitality that comes from this. Sleep is of vital importance in healing the body and mind.
Hygeia in the birth chart indicates healing abilities especially with dreams, shamanism and certain kinds of creativity which tap into the unconscious. Hygeia seems to me very much connected with the Virgo Pisces axis. Virgo is the Goddess and often associated with health and Pisces cosmic consciousness and the realm of dreams. Hygeia in aspect to Neptune, Pluto and in the 12th house may bring particularly deep insights. Her nodes were in fact running from Pisces to Virgo at her birth time. You can contact Hygeia easily by entering her temple before you go to sleep and asking her for healing.

For those of you in the UK we have some exciting Chiron workshops with the In Harmony with Horses herd in the Pennines. Check out www.inharmonywithhorses.co.uk for more details.
Guest article by Dorene Carrel @ www.astroconnections.blogspot.com
April is a fairly active month, featuring a Lunar Eclipse and the planetary stations of Jupiter and Pluto. These particular cycles bring intense and transformational changes that can produce life-changing events. We began this lunar cycle in late March with a new moon solar eclipse in the last degree of Pisces, quickly followed by the spring equinox. The March 20 equinox signified new beginnings, while Pisces themes are about releasing the past. So we may experience significant endings that could open the way for some favorable new beginnings.
The Full Moon Lunar Eclipse occurs on April 4 at 14 Libra. Libra themes involve relationships and partnerships of all kinds, as well as cooperation, balance and equality. This is a challenging eclipse due to the alignment with Uranus and square to Pluto. It has a breakdown or breakthrough, shape-shifting quality that asks us to confront the need for change in some area of our life. Those with prominent planets in the cardinal signs (Aries, Libra, Capricorn and Cancer) will be most deeply affected. World events will continue to have unexpected and even bizarre outcomes (Uranus), but will also show reforms (Pluto) that need to be made. Saturn in Sagittarius over the next couple of years will highlight the transportation areas.
This eclipse also connects with the October 8 eclipse, which occurred at the opposite degree in Aries. With both eclipses, we are being called to evaluate our personal needs with those of close relationships (self vs. other theme). What was begun last October that needs change or completion at this time? Since this is a North Node eclipse, there is a more expansive quality. We can use our new insights to create new beginnings.
The Sabian symbols for these degrees speak to the great growth potential of this full moon/eclipse cycle: “An Indian weaving a ceremonial blanket; projecting into everyday living the realization of wholeness and fulfillment,” and “Circular paths; coming to terms with the inevitability of establishing steady rhythms of social activity.” Circular paths can also refer to the ability to see significant patterns and shifts in one’s life events over time.
Also on April 4, Mercury aligns with the South Node in Aries, which can help us connect with past memories to achieve a higher perspective. As this aspect can bring up old patterns of thinking, it is important to release any feelings of worry, anxiety or discouragement at this time. Significant Mercury aspects between April 5-8 can bring exciting news and creative ideas, if we can stay open-minded and release outmoded ways of thinking.
On April 8 Jupiter turns direct at 12 Leo 35, encouraging creative self-expression and taking a leadership role. This is a good time to get in touch with and act on our heart-centered desires and needs. Jupiter is at home in Leo, which brings out its expansive and risk-taking side. The shadow side is arrogance and being too ego-centered. Jupiter will be in Leo until mid-August 2015.
Venus in Gemini opposes Saturn in Sagittarius on April 14, which may be challenging for relationships, but can help us tune into our real needs in this area. Where can we compromise to achieve a win-win situation? Communicating from a broader perspective can bring more satisfying results.
Pluto turns retrograde on April 16 at 15 Capricorn 32. Powerful changes and shifts can occur this week that may surface in a more outward way later in the year. During this period, we may do more internal processing on the effects of power and control issues and what needs to be released and transformed in our lives.
On April 18 the New Moon occurs at 28 Aries 25. Aries is self-assertive, impetuous, pioneering and can be very competitive. Along with the spring equinox, this is also one of the best times for taking that leap of faith to start a new enterprise or travel a new path in some life area. In what life area can we be a little bolder and more self-confident? The Sabian Symbol for this degree, “The music of the spheres; attunement to cosmic order,” suggests that learning to listen and trust in one’s inner voice is also part of this important process.
Another good cycle for taking action occurs on April 21-22 when Mercury aligns with Mars in Taurus and trines Pluto in Capricorn. These earth signs encourage constructive activities that will lead to tangible and profitable results.
Mercury in Gemini turns retrograde in mid-May. Blessings for a peaceful and prosperous month!

We have another full moon lunar eclipse coming up on April 4, 2015 at 5:05 AM PDT. This will be the third red blood moon in the series of four. The last one will be on September 27, 2015. On the second one, which was on October 8, 2014 we started weaving our light bodies because the moon was on 15 degrees Aries, and weaving our light bodies is what that degree means.
What my Sabian Symbol book says about that degree is “The I Ching symbol implied is the profound task of the weaving of our immortal body, the cosmic Robe of Glory. There is a moment in every cycle when, to however small a degree, every individual may be confronted with the potentiality of a fulfilling act of self-realization and may find himself/herself clothed in light”. I believe this past October full moon was the beginning of a major process of Ascension for many of us.
Now we have another full moon eclipse coming up on April 4th, which is on the first day of Passover and Easter Sunday is April 5th. Easter is the celebration of the risen Christ, or the Christ consciousness that is within all of us. At this time the Sun will be on 14 degrees Aries conjunct Uranus on 16 degrees Aries, and the midpoint is 15 degrees Aries. So here we are six months later with the same configuration in the heavens.
We have also had the Uranus/Pluto square in effect, Uranus was on 15 degrees Aries, and Pluto 15 degrees Capricorn from March 11th to March 28th. Does this mean that some of us are completing our Ascension cycle, which culminates with this upcoming full moon, and are ready to start living on a higher frequency Earth where love and peace reign?
Uranus is considered the great awakener. It rules electricity, which in turn rules our nervous system. For the past six months our nervous system has been going through a major rewiring. Mercury rules stress and anxiety and there has been a lot of that energy around in the past six months. Uranus also rules high technology like computers, the Internet, cell phones, wind and storms, lightning, airplanes, revolutions, rebellions, eruptions, Aliens, and UFOs. That is just a few things Uranus rules.
One of the main effects for the past four years has been how Uranus has affected people’s brains. It has affected people in different ways, and that is why there have been so many crazy things going on in the world. Aries rules our head and our brains and with the high frequency energy we have been receiving from the cosmos, it has caused a lot of people to go crazy in various ways. One example is the recent airplane crash in the French Alps where the co-pilot crashed his plane into a mountain and killed everyone on board. His brain was not on a high enough frequency to integrate this energy and he went crazy. That crash was very tragic and I have a lot of compassion for the people who lost loved ones on that plane.
Uranus has been in Aries since June of 2010. It takes Uranus seven years to go through each sign. Uranus will be in Aries for another couple of years. This position of Uranus has also caused a lot of rebellion all over the world. Look at the Middle East and the revolution that started in North Africa in January of 2011, and continues to this day. Now Yemen, Saudi Arabia, and Iran have entered into this revolution. This upcoming full moon will highlight the Middle East which includes Israel. It will also be affecting Russia and the Ukraine.
The good news is that on March 23 we entered a 65 day period of heart energy in the Dreamspell calendar. On this upcoming full moon on April 4th we enter a new 52 day cycle called the Red Eastern Castle of Turning. And the glyph for April 4th is the Red Magnetic Dragon, which rules birth. This full moon is on a vortex day which means a doorway opens to a different dimension. The Red Dragon represents the root source of life, the nurturance and support of primary being, and within it is found the primal waters of unity. It is the primal spiral of creation whose face can be seen as the primordial Mother in sacred union with the spiral of God.
Along with this moon representing birth, it is also the beginning of the moon of Manifestation for 28 days. Watch what you think because everything is moving so fast that manifestation is almost instant these days. The creation process goes from our thoughts, to our emotions, to our physical body. Our thoughts affect our emotions (energy in motion) and this brings the object of our thoughts into manifestation. We will have a great opportunity to create what we choose to experience this month. Let’s think positive thoughts.
Neptune represents the Universal Mother Goddess and she is a beautiful giant ice blue planet that glows like a gem in our heavens. It’s my understanding that she was the first planet created in our solar system. It is said that the Fisher Kings and Queens, who are our creators, came from that planet. The story of the Ring Lords pertains to that planet. Have you read the book ‘The Realm of the Ring Lords’ by Laurence Gardner? It is a very interesting book.
So we have Neptune as the female higher mind and Uranus as the male higher mind. Now it is time to merge the two together to become one and manifest Unity consciousness. Neptune, in its highest manifestation, rules the soft gentle energy of Pisces. Neptune will be in Pisces for several years so if we pull into this gentle energy it will be easier to start ‘Thinking with our Hearts’.
Neptune rules magnetics, and the strongest power in our body is our magnetic heart. The inner part of our hearts is where our power comes from and this is our spark of light, or Christ Consciousness. This is why it is time to open your heart and feel the love that is there. Jupiter is in Leo right now and this sign rules our physical hearts and backs. This is why there have been so many heart attacks lately, and false heart attacks which are really ascension symptoms.
It appears like the world is in total chaos right now, but out of this chaos will come a new creation. The most important thing for us to do right now is to raise our frequency above all this chaos. Become cool, calm, and collected. Deep breathe when you feel stressed, and also when you don’t feel stressed. Deep breathing moves our bodies out of fight and flight into serenity. Look at things as an observer and don’t get emotionally involved. Let there be peace in the world and let it continue with me.
This upcoming full moon may appear to get out of control because Uranus will be dominant and that planet rules change. It is very important to stay in peace, manifest joy, and walk softly on this beautiful planet. I wish everyone Happy Easter, and also happy Passover to those who celebrate that festival. They are both important celebrations. Congratulations to those who may graduate during this time period and find themselves living on a higher frequency Earth! There will be another opportunity to graduate at the time of the last Red Blood Moon Eclipse on September 27th. That celebration occurs on the Harvest Festival.
We did move into a different time-line this past January 16, 2015, so the doorway is now open to a higher frequency Earth. There is no set time period for entering the New Earth. Everyone goes by their own clock. Ascension is not a one day event. Ascension means to raise your frequency high enough so you can live on a peaceful Earth. It’s our job to change this world. ALL IS WELL IN MY WORLD. So Be It!

Guest Article by Alison McCabe (email@example.com)
Seven of us heard the call to go to the Orkney Islands to witness the Total Solar Eclipse from the oldest and one of the largest Neolithic sites in Britain dating to 5000BC. The Stones of Stenness is where our journey began calling the Ancient Animal guardians of Britain; Cernunnos the Great Stag in the East, Epona the White Horse in the South, Mona the Sacred Cow from the Isle of Angelsey in the West and Artor the Bear in the North.
Stenness is a Solar temple and once had 12 stones so the passage of the Sun around the zodiac could be observed. We also had been gifted Tibetan prayer flags and a Tibetan spinning gong and we had Kushi wind chimes attuned to the elements which I must say the numerous faery folk of Orkney loved very much.
Just as we arrived at Stenness at 8 am it was bucketing down, however soon a lovely blue ring of sky opened up above us. We set off along the ancient pathway to the Ring of Brodgar. The Lunar Temple was one mile away across this wild landscape on thin litmus of land with the Lochs of Harray and Stenness on each side. At the narrowest part of the road, which felt very much a threshold between our world and the underworld, we were amazed as a full rainbow formed arching right across our path. It has been shown by archeological remains that this pathway was used traditionally to journey into the underworld so we felt right on track.
We noticed a swan mother and father with seven cygnets. I felt this was highly significant as the swan symbolizes the ‘sacred marriage’ as does an eclipse of the Sun and Moon. The Child of the Sun and Moon is the Philosophers Stone which is what we all are in this new cycle. Also in Celtic mythology the Seven Faery Children of Lir appear as swans and they are the power animal that helps humans enter other dimensions.
The cygnets were behaving in an interesting way too. Three were happily hanging out with mum and dad, two were making their way into the open sea on the other side of the bridge and one was swimming up and down very interested in us! The swans also made me think of the archetypal story of the ‘ugly duckling’. This was exciting as nature was confirming my own intuitive feeling that those in our group needed to be totally affirmed and loved by Mother Moon and Father Sun in this new cycle and leave any baggage behind.
As we walked along moving softly with the wind behind us we could see the eclipse slowly making its way towards totality. Up ahead we could then start to see the enormous Ring of Broghar a lunar temple which once had 60 stones and now has 27. There were some other people there who had come by car. The eclipse was perfectly aligned with the path between Stenness and Broghar which was also very exciting.
We entered in this traditional way from the East rather than from the car park and so we were oblivious to the many cordons preventing people going to the center of the circle. This felt a natural place for us to be and where we went to download the power of the eclipse and send it across the world with our spinning gong and Tibetan prayer flags and the authorities left us in peace to do this.
I will mention too that an American woman from near Yellowstone National Park joined us and at one point somebody took a photo of us back to back between two very powerful stones and said ‘ you look like an eclipse’. It did feel that the energies of both Britain and America were important with this eclipse, perhaps bringing the winds of change for both countries. Speaking of winds, the solar winds were also very high bringing viewings of the Northern Lights across Scotland over the eclipse period.
In the days that followed we explored the Neolithic sites left by the giant, red headed people who once lived here and knew this Scotland to be a key power place on the planet as it predates all other sites around the world and Stonehenge. At the time these sites were abandoned, the pyramids started to be built in Egypt and there are many connections, not least that both sites may be aligned to Orion. The Ness of Broghar, an archeological site partly funded by Friends from America, is uncovering an incredible temple complex including a pyramid in this area. They have a Facebook page.
We visited Skara Brae and Brock of Gurness, spiraling stone homesteads almost within the earth and were inspired by how these people lived so harmoniously with nature. At the breath taking cliffs of the ‘Tomb of the Eagles’ we went inside the tomb where our auras magnified as shown by the photos. We saw there among the treasures of human, eagle and mineral artifacts, a newspaper article of a skull found with an elongated crown resembling Egyptian kings and queens. We were left in no doubt as to the origin of the Star Beings that once lived here.
We were all very aware of the karmic issues the Star people brought to earth, on the negative side the misuse of sexual power and problems surrounding the use of metal, especially as money. The eclipse coincided with the final Uranus Pluto square and the continuing exposure of misuses of power (Pluto in Capricorn) and a news story broke on March 16th as various ex British cabinet ministers were arrested and charged for being part of an extensive pedophile ring. This case will expose the corrupt heart of the establishment and in our prayers we asked for the noble and courageous heart to arise in humanity, and for new leaders to replace those who have misused their power, in the most appalling way, and those in the police and other organizations who helped to cover it up to be exposed too.
On the cliffs of the Tomb of Eagles we did some ‘Eagle’ yoga and felt like we were literally being picked up by the wind and soaring. Disapproval of ourselves generated by others who can’t recognize our beauty and talents can be very disempowering. My feeling is that the theme of the ‘ugly duckling’ transforming to the powerful Eagle is an important key to unlocking humanity’s potential at this time.
Our ancestors reminded us of how their homes, agriculture and lives were intimately woven into cosmic cycles and that there is great wisdom in working with nature rather than against her. The Orkneys are a magical time tardis where people can reconnect to primal energies of a vision which began thousands of years ago and was reborn at the Spring Equinox 2015.
Thanks to the Planet Alert blog some very important connections were made. Two people came on the trip after reading the blog and it turns out they were born one day after each other. The woman F was born Dark Moon in Aries and the man T was born New Moon Aries in 1956 so as they pointed out they were a Yin and a Yang from opposite sides of the country.
Also we connected with a mandala artist M near Glastonbury who took a group to White Sheet Hill crop circle formed in 2010 following a lunar eclipse close to the equinox. This is a link to a photo of this awesome crop circle. http://www.lucypringle.co.uk/photos/2010/mere-cropcircle-2010.shtml
People connected to the Orkneys across the world which was great, a swarm of global bees drawn to wherever we needed to BEE…….and happy to BEE who we are.

Our next journey exploring the sacred sites connected to the red headed giants will be by yacht in Tenerife and La Gomera September 2015 to download the final Blood Moon eclipse and to spend lots of time with the whales who migrate and live in this special Atlantic corridor. There are many who believe La Gomera, which is a strange misty Jurassic age forest, may have been part of Atlantis and it is where Columbus set off from to discover America which I’m sure karmically is going to turn out to be very important. The indigenous people of these two islands are called Guanches, very tall red headed people.

Here is a new article by the Astrologer Alison McCabe (email@example.com).
In the warm, glow of the Central Sun
A seed is stirring again, urgently seeking life
Cracking open in its intense desire for rebirth.
In 1965 a new seed activated at the last Uranus Pluto conjunction. This was a time of great transformation, especially in America, with anti-war protests, women and gay liberation and a refusal of people to play by the same old rules. Dane Rhudyar wrote an important article at this time which can be read at www.khaldea.com/rudhyar/astroarticles/worldcrisis_1965-1966.php.
There is also an energetic connection between 1966 and 2014 in Chinese Astrology being both Year of the Horse.
There are three important issues in Dane’s article which are relevant to us right now as we approach the portal of a new cycle at the Total Solar Eclipse, Spring Equinox and contemplate how we go about integrating and healing the Goddess energies. He links the Uranus Pluto square socially and astrogically with the previous conjunction which happened in 1850-51. This too was a profound time of transformation as the Industrial Revolution in Europe gradually sucked more and more people away from the land and nature into a noisy, dirty machine which benefits only 5 per cent of the people in the world, mostly living in the West. The system requires a very linear, left brain approach to life where we are all encouraged to fight over one pie, even to the death, and buy into the survival of the fittest rather than the overall well being of the earth and the human race in all its diversity and splendor. Industrialization went onto fuel colonialisation which has created another layer of trauma for human beings.
Whilst we have made some inroads into challenging inequality in the world as a whole, for deeper transformation to take place we need to challenge the foundation of many structures we take for granted and be open to an alternative. Not communism as this turned out to be as disempowering for humanity as capitalism, but a Middle Way guided by Aquarian principles of inclusiveness. The way that indigenous people live in harmony with nature could provide some important clues though we cannot ever return to where we were and must also embrace new technology as part of this revolution.
Secondly we notice that the same secondary planets are involved in both Uranus Pluto conjunctions which are Mars, Jupiter and Saturn and this is also the case now. Finally in 1851 the cross of changes was in Fixed signs, in 1966 in Mutable signs and right now at the Uranus Pluto square in the Cardinal signs which has the most potential for change. These particular planets are very important because they are the pathway from personal to collective evolution via the asteroid belt. If we imagine the Goddess Asteroids as huge stepping stones crossing a river of life then in a sense we all must have the courage again to play on these stone’s like children in order to have the power and strength, combined with love and mercy, needed to transform the underlying structures of society which do not support our spiritual evolution as a whole. There is no God or Goddess who is going to arrive from the clouds to help us change things. The change will only come when we believe in our own capacity as creators and choose to start again, this time including everybody across the globe.
The Goddess archetypes are energies we encounter in ourselves which can strengthen and enliven both women and men. It was long mathematically predicted by the Titius Bode Law that a body might be found between Mars and Jupiter and so in 1800 a group of 30 European Astronomers nicknamed The Celestial Police were given 15 degrees of the zodiac to hunt for this invisible body. In a very patriarchal way they were determined to bring the universe to order. It always delights me greatly that Ceres, the first goddess to be discovered, was so by Piazzi an independent Monk Astronomer from Sicily who named her after the patron saint of his city. As in mythology it appears Ceres broke away from the gods of Mount Olympus in disgust.
Ceres the Mother Goddess represents the foundation of human life which is the security, physical care and nurturing provided usually by our mother which has a profound effect on our ability to relate to and trust other human beings. Learning to love is therefore for many people an issue of rewiring neural pathways that were not formed in those early days, ideally through eye contact with a mother breastfeeding. When we truly comprehend the importance of a mother and father’s ability to nurture to the well being of society we would cease to see this as a private matter and direct all manner of support, education and resources to assist this situation.
I was fascinated to notice also that Prince George was born with the Ceres Vesta conjunction bang on his ascendant and he was born just on the cusp of Cancer/Leo. Considering his life in relation to other Royal babies he has spent his first years with his parents as nature intended and not primarily looked after by nannies. Princess Diana started this trend insisting that she read to her children a bed time story and bathe them. In my Astro Mum and Baby group there was also a baby boy born with Ceres Vesta on his ascendant and his Mum was training to be a midwife, wanting to reintegrate the sacred back into this role which felt too like a perfect expression of the Goddess energy surrounding the child.
Vesta was the Fire Priestess who once had high status in Roman society and was considered a vital transmitter between the Divine and the State. Being female was seen as essential for this task perhaps because her right brain was naturally more dominant. However by 500AD priestesses are outlawed altogether in Rome and all major religions preach that women are too impure and irrational to be conduits of God. Most importantly the centre of spiritual life is moved from the hearth in the home to a church controlled by a priest and therefore out of reach of all but a privileged few who made and agreed the rules of the game.
Vesta and Ceres travelled together for much of 2014 in Libra along with the North Node signaling their powerful part in transforming human destiny. “Spirit is in you and in your home not in any outside agent or building” is her teaching. A challenged Vesta in the birth chart often indicates the need to heal inner fears about ones spirituality, for example if the parents or culture were very rigid in their religious views or from past life persecution.
Pallas Athena the Warrior Goddess was conjunct the Partial Solar Eclipse on the 23rd October 2014 joining the Sun and Moon in their alchemical marriage at 1 degree Scorpio. Pallas represents women in leadership positions creating the vision and civic structures for the new society. Significantly at the Total Solar Eclipse at the Spring Equinox 2015 and the Third Blood Moon eclipse on the 4th April she is transiting the Galactic Centre. Thus this is a peak time to align with the evolutionary power of the Warrior Woman with the vision of the whole of evolution in her heart.
Juno as the Goddess of the Sacred Marriage is also key in these times of many alchemical marriages of the Sun and Moon. At the first Blood Moon eclipse on the 15th April she was conjunct the Sun opposing the Moon, Ceres, Vesta and Mars. Venus and Mars have also been travelling hand in hand passing over the portal of endings and beginning between Pisces and Aries where the Total Solar Eclipse will occur in a few weeks. Its all about the sacred union of male and female everywhere you look.
Whilst this will almost certainly mark an important turning point in male female relations there is a higher ‘inner’ marriage at stake and sometimes in our focus outwardly on relationships we miss our true calling to reunite with our own Spirit. In the Qabalah this 13th pathway between Tiphareth the Soul and Kether the Spirit is that of The Moon (tarot). The symbol is crossing the desert alone on a camel, to be called home to oneself. In such a place of perfect oneness all things become possible.
The waxing square of Uranus and Pluto calls us to take up the challenge, to see ourselves as the Master or Mistress of our own Destiny and that the outcome of the future will be determined by our own efforts as human beings to evolve spiritually and to match this socially. The seed of 1966 is now a seedling still tender but with great promise of life.
Significantly Juno is in an exact conjunction with the Sun in Libra for the final Blood Moon eclipse on the 28th September 2015….perfect for the alchemical marriage within and for renewing our commitment to a beloved other.
I do birth charts specializing in the Goddess and Centaurs and have various Astrology groups in West Yorkshire/Lancashire UK. I am organizing a trip ‘whale whispering’ and visiting sacred sites on Tenerfie and La Gomera for the final Blood Moon eclipse on the 28th September 2015 so please do email me at firstname.lastname@example.org for more details about any of the above.
Guest article by Dorene Carrel.
March is an active, dynamic month, highlighted by a New Moon Solar Eclipse in Pisces, the last Uranus/Pluto square and Saturn in Sagittarius making a retrograde station. Several Mars aspects to the outer planets will both challenge and energize us. Also, the Spring Equinox arrives on March 20, signaling the beginning of the astrological New Year. We began this new lunar cycle in mid-February with a new moon in Aquarius, with a focus on expanded awareness and unconventional or innovative approaches. There will likely be many new beginnings this month that will indicate new trends for the future.
A very harmonious pattern occurs March 3-4 when Venus and Uranus align in Aries and both form a trine to Jupiter in Leo. This period may bring great opportunities and possible windfalls, especially for those who have set some favorable intentions in motion. The Jupiter-Uranus trine is the second of three alignments, with the first being last September 25. Perhaps a project was begun at that time that now needs some attention and fine tuning. We feel a greater sense of optimism now, with the courage to move forward. The third and last trine will be completed on June 22, 2015.
Venus in square to Pluto on March 4, along with Mars aligned with the South Node in Aries, may present relationship and financial difficulties. The fire trine should help us gain a greater perspective on long-term patterns that need changing.
The Full Moon occurs on March 5 at 15 Virgo. During this time we may become more service-oriented, health conscious, orderly, practical and discriminating. This is a good period to make constructive changes in one’s health, diet and exercise habits. The shadow side of Virgo is being overly rigid, judgmental and analytical, while Aquarius suggests being more open to new and innovative perspectives. A favorable sextile aspect to Pluto should help us gain deeper insights. The Sabian symbols for these degree areas echo this theme: “A fine lace handkerchief, heirloom from valorous ancestors; the quintessence of deeds well done.” And “An officer instructing his men before a simulated assault under a barrage of live shells; the need to thorough rehearsing before any complex and inherently dangerous social ritual in which power is used or evoked.”
On March 11, Mars aligns with Uranus in Aries and squares Pluto. This dynamic and volatile alignment is a trigger date for the upcoming Uranus/Pluto square on March 16. It can bring outer events with a breakdown or breakthrough theme and asks us to make wise choices between freedom and security. It is best to slow down now and watch out for accidents. Saturn turning retrograde on March 14 brings a more cautious, structured approach that may lesson some of the volatility. On March 16, Uranus squares Pluto for the seventh and last time. This can represent the final shift of perspective that we need to adapt to and appreciate the new and different realities surrounding us. The reverberations from this aspect series (begun in 2011) will last for several more years.
The New Moon Solar Eclipse occurs on March 20 at 29 Pisces 27. The Spring Equinox at 0 Aries follows an hour later, making this day especially potent. Pisces themes bring focus to being emotional, sensitive, intuitive, compassionate and otherworldly. The shadow side is being deceptive, confused and overly spacy. The sextile to Chiron facilitates opportunities for healing and receiving support. This is a South Node Eclipse, which requires releasing the past before any new beginnings can occur. The fact that this eclipse occurs in the last degree of the last sign also signifies the release theme. Since it also aligns with the fixed star Scheat, there can be weather-related problems that require being prepared. Eclipses can be felt for up to six months or more. The Sabian symbol keynote for this degree is also a Pisces theme: “The power of clearly visualized ideals to mold the life of the visualizer.”
April brings a Full Moon Lunar Eclipse in Libra. Blessings to all for a joyous and prosperous Spring.

Are you emotionally prepared for the month of March? Mars has moved into Aries, which is a fire sign, and the first couple of weeks Mars will be moving into making an aspect to the Uranus/Pluto square. This energy could become very explosive so please keep your cool. This will be the seventh and final Uranus/Pluto square. This energy will affect our heads, brains, and crown chakra because that is what the sign of Aries rules. The Sun will be moving through the emotional sign of Pisces until March 20th; our emotions will be greatly affected by this emotional fire energy.
Have you felt any fear or anxiety lately and wondered where it came from? You thought you had released your issues and here comes more to release. I just realized that the whole world has been releasing their old fears for the past two plus years as Saturn moved through Scorpio. A lot of fear was released during that time period and where did all that fear go? I was told it got caught in our atmosphere and formed an invisible dark cloud around Earth and everyone who is sensitive picks up this universal fear and thinks it is their own fear.
The dark ones have been feeding on this fear and adding more to it by focusing on so much fear- based news. They have been using TVs, computers, and other electronic devices to spread this fear. This is why it appears like the world is in so much chaos. Fear = False Information Appearing Real. I just thought of another meaning for the word fears. It means Fear Emerging and Requesting Solutions. What are those solutions? Well, first of all we need to realize that we are picking up fear from that dark cloud; at least those who are empaths are doing that. Then we need to disperse that cloud, or change it to a bright pink cloud of love. I like that idea.
I just received an email this morning talking about a Weekly Liberation Meditation every Sunday. They are using the blue electric light from the Galactic Central sun in their meditation. I think this is also a good idea. Please check out: http://www.facebook.com/events/823668537662050`
We are moving into the energy of the full moon, which will be on March 5, 2015 at 10:05 AM PST. This will be on the day of the Jewish festival of Purim. This festival is on the 14th day of Adar. On the 13th day of Adar the Jews mobilized and killed many of their enemies and on the 14th day of Adar they rested and celebrated, and a new King/Queen was appointed. It’s interesting that the Prime Minister of Israel Benjamin Netanyahu will be giving a speech here, in the USA, before Congress on March 3, 2015. After that he goes back home and there will be an election in Israel.
I find the correlation here very interesting. John Boehner, who is Speaker of the House, invited Netanyahu here to speak before our Congress and went over the head of our president to do that. There has been a challenge going on between President Obama and Netanyahu for quite a while. The president, and the vice president will not meet him and the Secretary of State will be out of town. This is not the usual protocol, what is up?
Because the planets are so volatile this month, especially right before the full moon and with Mars now in Aries, it looks like we might witness a major event during this time period. (I just heard about a major event). A Russian opposition leader named Boris Nemtsov was shot and killed on the eve of a major opposition gathering that he was going to lead against Putin. What kind of repercussions will be felt in Moscow because of this event?
This chaotic time period will last through March and into April. There will be a blood red full moon lunar eclipse on April 4, 2015. This is also during the Festival of Passover. It’s so interesting how the four blood moons all correlate with major Jewish Festivals.
We will also have a total solar eclipse on the Spring Equinox on March 20, 2015 along with the final Uranus/Pluto square. The Cardinal signs are very fast-acting and with Mars square Uranus on March 11 and Pluto the next day, there might be some emotional havoc to deal with at that time. The Middle East is a very volatile place right now with I.S.I.S. getting stronger, and I hear Israel is buying oil from that group. Why are they doing that? Who is financing I.S.I.S?
The Mars/Uranus conjunction in March will be right over the Vatican. The conjunction is on 15 degrees Aries and affects 15 Libra, which is where the Vatican is located. What will that bring? The Mars/Uranus energy is one of a desire to change the status quo which, in some cases, can lead to revolutionary attitudes. Unexpected, disruptive events may occur. This energy has already been in effect for a while, actually since Pope Francis came to power.
Then we throw Pluto into the mix, and Mars square Pluto is a different energy. Power struggles involving political, professional, or military affairs are likely at this time. Conflict can arise over finances like corporate money, taxes and the old money system. This is also a powerful energy for transformation on all levels. The good news is that out of the chaos a new Earth will manifest, and a New Money System.
The Uranus/Pluto square has been greatly affecting our weather here in the USA. I was told a long time ago that when Pluto went into Capricorn there would be a lot of snow and cold weather on the East Coast and the S.E. USA. This has definitely happened this winter. I have never seen so much snow on the East Coast. Pluto has been directly affecting the N.E. States because of the location of the planet Pluto on 14 degrees Capricorn.
Uranus rules storms and Pluto rules transformation. All that snow has caused a lot of transforming energy in those states. I’m very grateful to be living in the Pacific Northwest where we very seldom have snow, except in the mountains. This Pluto/Uranus square will continue to be in effect for most of March, and we may continue to feel the effects from it for months to come.
I don’t know how many of you know that an Inter-dimensional war has been going on in our heavens between the negative ETs and the negative controllers of our world. This was all foretold in the Book of Revelation. Chapter 12 “Then war arose in heaven; Michael and his angels were fighting against the Reptilians and they fought and the dark side was defeated. There was no longer any place for them in heaven (that was a long time ago), and the great Reptilians were thrown down to our Astral level (4D) and also to Earth where they took control”.
They are the great deceivers of the whole world. And they have been fighting with their ships in our heavens for quite a while now. The mysterious beams that so many people have heard and felt are from their weapons. There are two factions fighting and they are destroying each other. Dark destroys itself, and peace will soon reign. The war in our heavens is now starting to come to an end, thank goodness. Check out this link by David Wilcock, look for the text, not the video. (http://divinecosmos.com/start-here/davids-blog/1174-disclosure-history)
We have lived in a world and solar system of duality for so long that it will be nice to finally live in Unity Consciousness or 5D. I think we have seen enough control by the dark side. This great experiment has gone on long enough and it is time for a change to a loving, peaceful world. We need to create a world where love reigns. All of us working together can make a big difference. We are all great Beings of Love and Light. Once we realize that, anything is possible. Love is the glue that holds the Universe together. I send you my love! ***** Mahala Gayle *****
