Happy Chinese New Year February 8, 2016

This is the year of the Fire Monkey and it will be a very exciting year. I like the sign of the Monkey. The Fire Monkey is very energetic and is a natural leader and innovator. The fire element gives him great vitality and he has a fertile imagination. He is also very inventive. The Fire Monkey is the most forceful of all the Monkeys. He likes to be in control and can be very opinionated.

Everything will be workable this year because the monkey will not give up before trying every angle. There will be lots of inventions. Politics, diplomacy, high finance and business will be engaged to the fullest this year. America was born in the year of the Fire Monkey, 1776. This year is also ruled by the Astrological sign of Leo so we will experience a lot of good energy from that fire sign.

We are also in the year 2016. The word light adds up to the number two and the number sixteen is The Tower Struck with lightening in the Tarot cards. This means there will be a lot of light coming to Earth this year and this light will make the tower, or establishment fall. In other words light has won and it’s just a matter of time before we figure that out for ourselves. The only month in 2016 that adds up to a sixteen is the month of March. Watch what happens in that month because there could be lots of changes.

The year 2016 adds up to the number nine and some words that vibrate to this number are;  Sun, Love, Anger, Money and Christ Consciousness.  We have the choice of what words we choose to vibrate to this year. We can either vibrate to unconditional Love, or anger. I received an email today saying the oceans are angry. This could indeed be true because the vibration of anger is dominant this year. I think there is too much anger in the world and the Oceans are picking up this anger.

Storms are also a manifestation of our angry emotional energy, and look at how many storms there have been lately and they are getting stronger all the time. We are creators which means watch what you think and feel. Thoughts are electrical and emotions are magnetic.  What we feel is what we create by the pull of magnetic emotional energy. Please stay in the energy of unconditional love.

We have been in the Golden Age of Aquarius since February 4, 1962 when seven planets lined up in that sign. Remember the song “This is the Dawning of the Age of Aquarius.”  This ushered in the Age of the Hippies. And in the seventies the Love Children were in full bloom. The Age of Aquarius started 54 years ago. That seems like such a long time ago. Now this age is starting to bloom and people are waking up. We have the Indigo children and some of them are old now. They contributed to the breaking down of the structure by being Hippies and Love Children.

Now look at the revolution the young Indigos started in Tunisia, which continues to this day in Syria. The young Indigos will continue this process of changing the system, hopefully in a more peaceful way. They are the rebels and they are in their twenties and thirties now. They are, and will be very important in this process of change. Look at how they have taken an interest in politics in the United States. It’s time for change.

We also have the Crystal children who will bring in a new way of living. They are a whole race of children who are called The Children of Love. They can do marvelous things and they will really change the world. These children will lead us into a new world of love.

We also celebrate Valentine’s Day in the sign of Aquarius. I would like this to become one of our main holidays, called the Holiday of Unconditional Love. It’s time to open our hearts. Our magnetic heart is the most powerful organ in our body.  We have no idea what we will be able to do when we start ‘Thinking with our hearts.’ Aquarius adds up to the number eight, which is the number of God.

Almost everyone thinks that the number eight rules money although the actual word money (4+6+5+5+7) adds up to 27/9.  The number eight rules the word God (7+6+4=17/8). The Bible says “Seek ye first the kingdom of God then all will be given unto you.” This means that once you are manifesting Christ Consciousness you will be able to create anything you choose to manifest.

We are also in another cycle called Virgo, the Goddess, which will last for 2,160 years. This started on July 11, 1991 when there was a total eclipse of the Sun over Mexico City, and we entered the time of the sixth sun. That was the time when mass UFOs showed up in pictures of the eclipse. Virgo is the sixth sign of the Zodiac.

This cycle is ruled by Regulus, the Royal Star of the Lion. Regulus was moving through the sign of Leo for a long time and then it started moving into Virgo in 1991. It takes Regulus 2160 years to move through one sign. This is what the Sphinx was trying to tell us. It was preparing us for this new age of Virgo. The Sphinx has the body of a lion and the head of a woman.

The word Goddess adds up to 28/10. The number of Satan is also 10. This means we have the word God as number eight, and Goddess as number one. Together they make the number nine which is love. I believe this is why woman became subservient to man because they considered woman as being too negative and of a lower vibration than man. This is why the Goddess has been hidden for so long and it is now time for the Goddess to return and become equal with God. Everything has a positive and a negative side to it. Working together they become neutral and equal in value. This is when we move into Unity Consciousness.

Be happy because the light energy that is coming to Earth is raising the frequency of both the Earth and us. The higher we move in frequency the better life becomes for us. Remember, we are just watching a movie and it is not real. Everything is an illusion and a new movie is about to start. I can hardly wait for this new movie to start and see what we will create for our new reality. I think that is very exciting. Tune out the chaos that is now occurring on Earth and just breathe, find your center, and create your own reality. So Be It!

I love you!            Mahala Gayle

Fattening up your ‘Fun Forest Brain’

Guest article by UK Astrologer Alison Dhuanna

We are in a time of unprecedented possibilities of healing our relationship with Earth through the way we eat and how we nurture ourselves. This is a deeply important issue and this merging of practical nutrition with spirituality and consciousness seems the next vital step in our evolution and the cosmic conditions are perfect for it now.

Jupiter conjunct the North Node in Virgo is asking us to expand our frequency through our bodies and brains whilst Chiron conjunct the South Node suggests we may have to heal karmic wounds to do so.  I know for myself I have had a stretch since the Winter Solstice where I have been consistently eating healthily which I have to say is quite new! I wonder if anyone else is experiencing this too?

Ceres the Mother Goddess, who illuminates our relationship to food and deeper issues of nurturing in the birth chart, has just moved into Pisces and whilst she is there we could have an upsurge of concern about the way we are treating animals in our food chain. In addition we may also become more sensitive to what we are eating. We could have many more people on the planet drawn to become Vegetarian and Vegan and eat raw food more which retains its sacred geometry with the earth and cosmic patterns.

Whilst contemplating Ceres in Pisces I attended a talk at a new local health café by an author Tony Wright who has co-written a book called Return to the Brain of Eden: Restoring the Connection between Neurochemistry and Consciousness. His talk was all about how human beings evolved huge brains in the forests in a symbiotic relationship with the sexual organs of trees, FRUIT. These female sexual organs are full of amazing hormones and anti oxidants and there is compelling evidence that this symbiotic relationship, initiated by the plant kingdom, is responsible for our last evolutionary leap. There is also however compelling evidence that the human brain is now shrinking despite having access to lots of meat for example, and is highly deficient in Omega 3 fatty acids which is a big problem. This shrinkage has led to us over time to becoming more left brained, controlling and prone to act on survival instinct. Of great interest to me too is that this ‘Forest Brain’ was much more playful – one thing that has emerged this year is that I want to have more fun with astrology and get it to a wider audience so I’m starting a monthly comedy night where I live in Todmorden, UK called ‘Comedy Divino: The Astrology Forecast’.  Lots of opportunities for my ‘Fun Forest Brain’ to express itself and in the Year of Fire Monkey what could be better than finding ways to express our mischievous self.

The Goddess Asteroids are presently forming an interesting mandala in the heavens which I will do a forth blog on soon when I’ve finished contemplating what it means. Astraea Goddess of the Sacred Arts has just entered Virgo, Hygeia Goddess of Dreaming Libra and Pallas Athena Aquarius. This alongside Ceres entering Pisces and Venus entering Capricorn is signalling a new cycle of the Goddess energies. The energies of Venus flowing into the planet in relationship to Andromeda are asking us to pay attention to the beauty of Gaia and that absolute miracle for example of every piece of fruit you eat. The beauty is all around us we just have to tune more and more back into it until it becomes our reality all the time.

Perhaps this new phase is also what has motivated me to finally set up my own blog which will be specifically about Goddess Asteroids with weekly posts. This is the link below and I warmly invite you to sign up. There is a further article about Juno and Vesta who are forming a Cardinal Cross with Uranus and Mars respectively and Venus.


Go in Peace and eat lots of Juicy Fruit and get your Omega 3’s up.

Astrology Report for February

By Dorene Carrel

February is a lighter month in terms of major planetary activity.  Mercury has turned direct and we are still several weeks away from the March eclipses. This month it will be to our advantage to move forward with important goals and activities, as well as be ready to take action on sudden opportunities. However, Uranus and Pluto will still be within two degrees of each other (in square aspect) until mid-March, so the prospect of major change through breakdowns or breakthroughs will still be a possibility.  These events may be triggered by the faster moving planets making aspect to Uranus and Pluto, as well as aspects in one’s own natal chart.

One of these periods occurs early in February when Venus in Capricorn makes a conjunction with Pluto on February 5 and then squares Uranus on February 6.  During this time, power and control issues can surface in relationships that can lead to sudden conflicts and possible separation. Venus in Capricorn wants more security and control, while Uranus needs more freedom and is prone to rebel from limiting circumstances.  However, Mercury in trine to Jupiter/North Node on the same day can help with communication and making constructive changes. These changes can be implemented when Venus makes a favorable trine to Jupiter on February 9.

On February 8 the New Moon occurs at 19 Aquarius.  This lunation is in a tight square to Mars in Scorpio, which emphasizes the need for deeper constructive change.  The challenge can be our ability to be inventive and to see beyond our ego to fulfill a greater ideal.   Beneficial alignments with Saturn and Uranus favor attracting like-minded others to help us stay focused on our goals.   The Sabian symbol for this degree, “A large white dove bearing a message; the answer of spiritual agencies to thorough, sustained and victorious individual efforts,” suggests looking for inner confirmation to ensure that we are on the right path.

Mercury moves into Aquarius on February 13, while Venus enters this sign on February 16.  The next several weeks provide a good period for networking and creating community around personal goals and interests. The use of social media and technology could play an important role.

The Full Moon occurs on February 22 at 4 Virgo.  It aligns with both Neptune and Ceres in Pisces.  Virgo traits include being pragmatic, thorough and concerned with work and health matters, while the shadow side can be judgmental and critical.  With the strong Pisces influence, there is a need to bring in compassion, empathy and the ability to be of support to others who are having difficulties. We will need to watch out for the Pisces shadow side, which is addiction, deception and codependency. During this period it is beneficial to strive for clarity of perception as well as tuning in to our higher intuitive guidance. The Sabian symbols for these degrees, “Black and white children play together happily,” and “Heavy car traffic on a narrow isthmus linking two seashore resorts,” suggests a greater need for empathy, unity and acceptance of individual differences.

On February 23, Jupiter in Virgo opposes Chiron in Pisces. Both are in square aspect to Saturn in Sagittarius.  We may need to come to a greater understanding and compassion for a current or previous situation that may call for more attention and healing at this time.  Saturn will help us to stay organized, focused and grounded.

The Sun/Neptune alignment in Pisces on February 28 facilitates healing work while bringing in higher inspiration.  This is a good time for a creative or spiritual retreat.  Avoid making any long-term decisions these few days, as there is a tendency for confusion.  A walk in nature would be more beneficial.

March brings the solar and lunar eclipses.  Stay tuned!

For many of you, this is the first email you’re receiving about the prayer vigil. Welcome!
We are announcing the time of the meditation
Join us in silent meditation at 11AM Eastern US time, 5PM Israel Time on Monday Feb. 1. There will be millions of people holding the light at that moment.
In the last five days over 200,000 people have joined us through the video and the vigil website. On February 1st there will be millions of us radiating a peaceful pulse that has the power to shift the even darkest crisis. I have seen this work many times before, and with your help it will work again.
We will be on the ground overlooking the
villages held by both ISIL and Hezbollah
Imagine how committed the spiritual leaders are who are joining us for this important meditation. They will join me near a Syrian village on the Israeli side of the Golan Heights where we can view several villages currently held by either ISIL or Hezbollah. From this vantage we will offer prayers and chants from all three of the great Abrahamic traditions ~ Jewish, Christian and Muslim, as well as the local Druze religion. Then at the designated time we will pause and join with people from around the world who are sending their prayers to heal the region.
Many have said that prayer and synchronized meditation will not heal the divisions that are so deep in this region, but millions of people disagree. Scientific studies have proven the power of focused, massive intent, and now we apply it to the suffering people of Syria.
Don’t forget to join us at 11AM Eastern US Time

Planet Alert February 2016

I am writing this article right before the full moon on January 23, 2016. The moon was in Cancer on Friday January 22, and was affecting the Southeast and East Coast of America. This caused lots of snow to come down in those areas, and then comes the flooding. If you live in those areas, are you enjoying all that snow, or is it very challenging? It was a very powerful monster storm and it was a major full moon event. I’m sure the alignment of five planets in our solar system added energy to that storm. This alignment will continue for several more days. The planets are Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter, and Saturn.

The sun is now in Aquarius and that area rules Japan, the Koreas, Australia and the surrounding islands. There was a 6+ earthquake in Japan, and we may hear more news from the leader of North Korea. Aquarius is an air sign and is ruled by Uranus. This planet rules storms. It also rules electricity, power outages, electronic devices, like your computer and cell phones, and all of these electronic gadgets will be under the energy of Uranus (unexpected disruption) this upcoming month. There will also be lots of storms all over the world for the next thirty days.

Uranus and Pluto are still in a square aspect, which means there will be a lot more transforming events in many parts of the world this month. Then right before the new moon on February 8th the sun will be making a square to Mars over the Middle East, and the sun will be affecting the Koreas. What will that create? Mars will be in Scorpio over the Middle East until March 6, 2016.

Mars in Scorpio means that you may have to deal with stuff that comes up in your life again; that you thought you had already dealt with long ago. If this happens, remember to breathe, detach from the drama, and remain calm, grounded and centered. If you witness chaos unfolding around you, or in the world, please stay calm. This too will pass.

Everything is coming to the surface now and if this causes you to feel fear, release that fear and remember that you are a great Being of Light. Scorpio is the energy of deep dark secrets. These secrets are being brought up to the surface for everyone in the world to see. Life is not as it has been portrayed. It’s major wake-up time.

We are still in the period of jumping time-lines. It can be very confusing when you don’t know what time-line you are experiencing. The fourth dimension is one where everything happens at once, and it rules time. Have you noticed how fast time is moving? Wars are still part of that time-line and the drums of war are still beating in the Middle East. The fifth dimension is one of peace and unity. I have also experienced a lot of miracles lately and that is a sixth dimension manifestation. Move out of the chaos by staying on a higher frequency time-line by manifesting unconditional love.

Mars is also affecting the West Coast and there is a confrontation going on in Burns, Oregon right now. This has been going on for almost three weeks. There are a lot of military people in Burns right now and so far it has been non-violent. I hope it stays that way. This full moon will be the test. This event appears to be the beginning of a growing revolution in the United States for freedom. Please focus your attention on Burns, Oregon and send your loving thoughts their way.

There was also an event that happened recently with a Volcano that is just off the Oregon Coast. The water in that area dropped four feet and it is a wonder there was not a tidal wave from that event. The Internet said there would be a large quake in the Pacific Northwest from it. I said, ‘I don’t think so’ the planets are not right for that to happen at this particular time. However, there was a 4.5 quake off Vancouver Island. That is the acupuncture point for the Pacific Northwest, and lots of quakes happen in that area because it is at the top of the subduction zone for our area. There was also a 6.7 quake that occurred yesterday in the Gulf of California, and a 6.8 SW of Anchorage.

The new moon of January 9th was under the theme of abuse, and this full moon is still under that theme. In fact this influence lasts until the new moon of February 8, 2016 when we enter into the Chinese New Year of the Fire Monkey. The theme of abuse means that if you have experienced any abuse in the past it is now coming up for you to look at and release. If you are interested in finding out the theme of a new or full moon, look on the Internet for Astrology King.

I also realized how abusive we have been to our planet. Earth is our Mother and she has been taking care of us for a long time. Our planet is a conscious being. The soul of this planet made an agreement, as part of its incarnation as a physical reality, to host a diversity of life forms and to interact with and sustain these life forms in keeping with the planets own destiny. She has allowed much abuse to her body while patiently waiting for humans to get the message of what they were doing to that which sustains them.

Do you think that because we are in the energy of releasing abusive events that Mother Earth is about to say no more, this is enough? You have had your chance and you still continue to abuse me. I will not stand for that anymore. Maybe we could apologize to Mother Earth and send her love. I think the abusive cycle is about to be over because the leaders of the world did sign an agreement last year to work on cleaning up the Earth.

Saturn is in Sagittarius, which rules the banking system. We all know that the new banking system is in place just waiting for the right moment to come on-line and be announced to everyone. There has been a lot of drama about the financial system going down, and this may happen on 4 D Earth. I do not believe this will happen on the higher frequency time-line. I believe we enter this new time-line of financial abundance on or around March 6th after Mars moves into Sagittarius.

Walk softly on this beautiful planet and know that “everything is going to be alright.”

So Be It!     I love you!

In Celebration of Phillis Wheatley New Moon January 2016

By Alison Dhuanna, UK Astrologer

‘Halleluiah’ I sing praises to the sweet name of Phillis Wheatley who lived upon the Earth from 1763 to 1784. How the synchronicity of the Divine Mind at work thrills me.

On reading Dorene Carrel’s monthly astrology report I was struck by the Sabian Symbol for the New Moon 0n 10th January 2016 which is ‘A Hidden Choir is Singing During a Religious Service’ the meaning of which is creating unity and harmony in the collective through like minded individuals working together. This idea of a ‘Hidden Choir’ in the heavens or as Socrates termed it the ‘Music of the Spheres’ has been intriguing me for a while now and ‘Sound’ seems to be so important in the transformation of the dense energies we are transcending in the Third Dimension. Also, earlier that day I had been at a Sound Gong Bath where the teacher was singing in the most heavenly way and so I was musing about that too. Feeling inspired I did a google search on ‘heavenly choirs’ and up popped two names: Phillis Wheatley the African American slave who was the first woman and African American published poet and Hildegard von Bingen the German Mystic.

Phillis Wheatley was born in Senegal in 1763, captured as a slave and brought to the Americas when she was 7 years old. This is known because she had lost her baby teeth and those of us with children will know what a special transitional time this is in a child’s life. Phillis, who is actually named after the ship she came on, lost everything the day she was captured. Her name, her parents and family, her country and culture and it’s a miracle firstly that she was bought as slave, as a female child she had no particular value to a slave owner. That she survived the gruelling journey is a miracle too. However fortune then smiled on Phillis as she was bought by the Wheatley family and their 18 year old daughter taught her to read and write. In the poem ‘Imagination’ below her love of Classic literature and the Greek and Roman myths shines through which would have mirrored her African beliefs of Spirit residing in nature and the cosmos. Phillis also seems to have embraced Christianity but without it destroying her foundation belief system which to me shows a great strength of character and intelligence.

There is something very confident that I admire about Phillis Wheatley’s writing as a woman. She is unapologetic in writing a book about morals and philosophy when I’m sure in reality there were many who scorned her. She however had the belief in herself to present her ideas to George Washington and was warmly received by him. She won her freedom from slavery through being recognized as a poet. As an Astrologer I feel she embodies the energy of the Dark Goddess in a very profound way.

Reading about Phillis’s incredible life it struck me how very apt a story this is for the Uranus Pluto square which is very active as the January New Moon conjunct Pluto. The Uranus Pluto square energies have been hitting us since 2012 with one challenge after another to break through as individuals in the collective swamp of crap, survival fears and mental chains. We are breaking free from a more subtle form of slavery where the chains are invisible …… ideas, judgements, prejudices and fears.

My dizzy excitement came yesterday when I did Phillis Wheatley’s astrology chart for 8th May 1763 for Dakar, Senegal. Can you imagine my excitement then to discover that Phillis is having her URANUS RETURN. When Phillis was born Uranus was at 16 degrees Aries and at the New Moon as I am writing it is at 15 degrees Aries so just 1 degree away. Apparently in the since 2012 information on the internet about her life has been growing like Jack’s beanstalk…..how exciting to know that even when we have passed on physically the Cosmos can help us grow. Pretty miraculous! What is even more exciting is that Pluto was also in Capricorn when she was born so during her lifetime would have almost certainly squared closely a number of times providing this energy signature of extreme challenge but also the possibility of breaking through the chains of the prevailing culture.

One of the things that immediately made me very interested in Phillis is that she wrote about Columbia as a Goddess for the USA and in ‘Imagination’ her poem below also refers to the Goddess. As she was born with Uranus conjunct both Ceres the Mother Goddess and Venus in Aries it seems just right, her purpose fulfilled, to have written these beautiful words of devotion to the Goddess. In this poem to you can see why she might appear as a poet interested in Heavenly Choirs too and clearly she had very mystical experiences and a great love of the Cosmos. What a special person she was and I hope in times of challenge will be a strength and inspiration to you in 2016. Phillis and I are Rooting for You to Break Through. Love and Blessings Alison Dhuanna.

On Imagination
BY PHILLIS WHEATLEY 1753–1784 Phillis Wheatley
Thy various works, imperial queen, we see,
How bright their forms! how deck’d with pomp by thee!
Thy wond’rous acts in beauteous order stand,
And all attest how potent is thine hand.

From Helicon’s refulgent heights attend,
Ye sacred choir, and my attempts befriend:
To tell her glories with a faithful tongue,
Ye blooming graces, triumph in my song.

Now here, now there, the roving Fancy flies,
Till some lov’d object strikes her wand’ring eyes,
Whose silken fetters all the senses bind,
And soft captivity involves the mind.

Imagination! who can sing thy force?
Or who describe the swiftness of thy course?
Soaring through air to find the bright abode,
Th’ empyreal palace of the thund’ring God,
We on thy pinions can surpass the wind,
And leave the rolling universe behind:
From star to star the mental optics rove,
Measure the skies, and range the realms above.
There in one view we grasp the mighty whole,
Or with new worlds amaze th’ unbounded soul.

Though Winter frowns to Fancy’s raptur’d eyes
The fields may flourish, and gay scenes arise;
The frozen deeps may break their iron bands,
And bid their waters murmur o’er the sands.
Fair Flora may resume her fragrant reign,
And with her flow’ry riches deck the plain;
Sylvanus may diffuse his honours round,
And all the forest may with leaves be crown’d:
Show’rs may descend, and dews their gems disclose,
And nectar sparkle on the blooming rose.

Such is thy pow’r, nor are thine orders vain,
O thou the leader of the mental train:
In full perfection all thy works are wrought,
And thine the sceptre o’er the realms of thought.
Before thy throne the subject-passions bow,
Of subject-passions sov’reign ruler thou;
At thy command joy rushes on the heart,
And through the glowing veins the spirits dart.

Fancy might now her silken pinions try
To rise from earth, and sweep th’ expanse on high:
From Tithon’s bed now might Aurora rise,
Her cheeks all glowing with celestial dies,
While a pure stream of light o’erflows the skies.
The monarch of the day I might behold,
And all the mountains tipt with radiant gold,
But I reluctant leave the pleasing views,
Which Fancy dresses to delight the Muse;
Winter austere forbids me to aspire,
And northern tempests damp the rising fire;
They chill the tides of Fancy’s flowing sea,
Cease then, my song, cease the unequal lay.

Joy – the Chocolate of Cosmic Worms

Guest article by Alison Dhuanna

As I write this blog the valley that I live in, in West Yorkshire UK, is in devastation after Boxing Day floods and on the News last night I see that tornadoes and floods have also affected the USA this season. With the planets all direct from Christmas Day until early January it is an amazing time to set our intentions for the year. It seems that the over riding patterns of the last few years, of learning to stay centered in chaos, are if anything intensifying so here is a creative challenge for 2016: Creating wormholes to higher dimensions and solving our problems on higher levels of consciousness.

I hope as you read it you mind is already spinning with possibilities. This realization that we are able to consciously create wormholes has arrived in my head with stunning clarity amidst the chaos of Christmas but following a most blissful Winter Solstice. Those who read my last blog will be aware that a group of us were visiting the Sacred Isle of Anglesey, Wales to experience the sun entering the womb of the Goddess at the cairn Bryn Celli Dhu built 4000 years ago by the Druids. Our theme was to heal karma between the Celtic and Roman peoples which also is interwoven with the polarity between Paganism and Christianity which has dominated both cultures for the last 2000 years. One thing clear doing this work is that as human beings when we try to solve problems in the third dimension the powerful forces of karma and hostile governments tend to overcome us; it’s a matter of one step forward and two steps back.

Darshana ‘Elohim of Ligh’ has joined us from Italy along with her friend and interpreter Elisabetta Invernizzi, an amazing healer too. Spending a few days in their company has already propelled us into another dimension before we even go to the sacred sites. Darshana has been channeling a system called EOS® (Holographic Systemic Energy) since 2004 and in 2012 this has been available to humanity through an attunement process, similar to Reiki and Sekhem. A few hours before we are due to witness the Sun entering the cairn of Bryn Celli Dhu at the Solstice sunset there is a gale of 70 miles an hour blowing and the rain is thrashing down. Elisabetta offers me an EOS healing in the hotel so we shut the curtains and proceed. During the treatment, which has its own special energized music, I become the land, my blood rivers with birds and frogs living within me; it is pure bliss where my sense of separation with nature has completely dissolved. After an hour we open the curtains to find blue skies and no gale, we are delighted and set off at full speed to the cairn.

There is a ceremonial pathway along a river to the cairn and there are very deep puddles so in an unusual situation I find myself offering piggy backs across it as the only one wearing wellies. I feel a bit like the Fairy Queen Rhiannon who carried people on her back like a donkey. When we arrive in the cairn the sun is already shining into the tunnel and I can’t really adequately describe the experience of bliss that we experience. I took some photos which show a Flower of Light forming around the triangular entrance way facing 230 degrees West as we spontaneously toned.


After half an hour the Sun reaches all the way into the ‘vaginal’ tunnel facing East 55 degrees creating vivid gold patterns on the rock walls filled with quartz inclusions. We greet the arrival of the Spirit of Christos at this special time, the rebirth of the light.  At this point a young, handsome Italian man joins us briefly and then leaves again…..another miracle.


In the space of a day we have attended a Christmas Carol Service at the candlelit church by the sea, Llanedwen church where in the 4th Century St Edwen lived with a group of nuns. The church triangulates in the landscape with Bryn Celli Dhu and a number of other cairns along the Menai Straits.  Now just hours later we are experiencing the most powerful Druidic ceremony I have ever been part of…..and I have been part of many! The Return of Christ and the Sun entering the Womb of the Goddess to fertilize the Awakening Rainbow Seed.

I have been aware of the ‘Wormhole’ experience for the last year and particularly in group meditations in the Quantum Field work I have been doing with neuroscientist and healer Dr Jen Altman. This experience in the cairn however takes it to a whole new level, the possibilities of the beauty and light that are available to us from the level of sacred geometry and sound. So how can we consciously start working the wormholes?

New scientific breakthroughs show how Wormholes and Entanglement Theory are inter connected and thanks to a copy of New Scientist arriving with the referenced article on Jen’s front step the day after we did Entanglement Theory on our course I can hopefully articulate this with clarity…so thank you to the forces that brought it and all the people it journeyed through along the way.

A Wormhole is composed of ‘dark matter’ a mysterious substance which has gravitational properties and without it galaxies would not be held together in the way they are. A Wormhole also has communicating particles at each end of it. Entanglement Theory proved that particles in different dimensions and time, space realities can affect each other simultaneously……in other words even faster than the speed of light. If however the particles at each end of the Wormhole stop communicating we get half a Wormhole. The very good news is that it has also been proved that consciousness affects particles too and so using our minds, bodies and voices we can call Wormholes too us allowing communication channels between earth and higher dimensions to be clearer.

My intuitive feeling is that Wormhole particles love celebrations and ceremonies and are especially powerful at certain parts of the planet in places of beauty. These places exist everywhere and can be felt through our senses. Singing and dancing are especially pleasing to the ‘Worms’ and they bend towards us to feel the special vibes of Joy we give out when we are being happy, loving human beings. Perhaps Joy is the ‘chocolate’ of Cosmic Worms.


Returning to the photo of the light entering the Cairn you will notice an Orb of Light which appeared 3 times during that day visible on photographs and had appeared to Darshana at home proceeding this. As soon as I saw the Orb of Light it made me think of the powerful teaching I had had on Anglesey in the summer on a day I was reading about String Theory. On this particular day I walked to a place I call the Druids Harbour, a natural inlet and a place of the most beautiful energy. With the tide in I noticed the first Jellyfish pulsing gently beneath the water, like a small stone dropping into the water sending out concentric circles. As my eyes tuned in I started to notice there were hundreds of jellyfish all slowly pulsing and then I started to see they were all in sync with each other. I was transfixed and felt in every cell of my body that this is the way light pulsates through 11 dimensions or more in strange colors we don’t see on Earth. The teaching of the Cosmic Jellyfish was to bring this feeling of pulsation into our cellular membranes and this will bring us into more powerful synchronicity with the universe.

On my return home from Anglesey I found this beautiful Buddhist video The Great Bell Chant on my Facebook timeline which really sums up beautifully everything experienced through the Winter Solstice. It was made 7 years ago but I feel that Child in the Lotus Flower awakening right now. https://vimeo.com/6518109

Astrology Report for January

Guest article By Dorene Carrel

January is a moderately active month, though it has a more introspective theme with elements of the past waiting to be reviewed and reevaluated.  It is not a good month for new beginnings or risky activities, as Mercury is retrograde for most of the month. Jupiter also turns retrograde shortly afterward. In addition, since Uranus and Pluto are within one degree of each other until late February, the challenging square between them is being reactivated. There will still be the potential for changes, chaos and breakdowns. Breakthroughs are possible too, although the latter will more likely occur later in the month or next month.

The first week features Mercury and Jupiter turning retrograde.  There will likely be some unexpected changes or delays in our routines and plans this week.  Mercury turns retrograde on January 5 at 1 Aquarius, then enters Capricorn on January 8, and finally turns direct on January 25 at 15 Capricorn. It is best to try to simplify our lives now and hold off with important decisions, plans and long-term commitments until late January/February.  Mercury remains in Capricorn until mid-February, which will help us to be more conscientious and organized. Something may need to be restructured or released during this cycle. Jupiter turns retrograde on January 7 at 23 Virgo, and turns direct on May 9 at 13 Virgo. During this cycle we can gain new insights and a better perspective on important matters, which enables us to move forward more easily after Jupiter turns direct.

The New Moon occurs on January 9 at 19 Capricorn.  This lunation is aligned with Pluto and in a difficult square to Uranus, giving it a more serious and intense overtone. We may need to revisit challenging issues that emerged during the Uranus/Pluto square cycle, which began in 2012. Certain situations may need to be restructured or released.  Even though circumstances may seem chaotic or restrictive, we can use this cycle to begin to make positive changes for the future.  Earth changes and political unrest may also be prominent themes this month, so it is best to be prepared. A beneficial sextile to Chiron will help bring healing energies to all who are in need. The Sabian symbol for this degree area, “A hidden choir is singing during a religious service,” suggests the unity and harmony that can be created when like-minded individuals work together toward common spiritual goals.

On January 13-14 the Sun in Capricorn aligns with Mercury and makes a harmonious trine to Jupiter. This period can bring favorable outcomes and prosperity, especially to those who have begun working towards certain goals.  Trines usually require that we put in some effort for manifestation to occur.  Mars in Scorpio in trine to Neptune in Pisces on January 18 brings healing and grace to our efforts.  We can feel more guided and supported by our spiritual guidance and intuition at this time.

The ongoing Uranus/Pluto aspect will be activated on January 20-31 by transiting Mercury at 16-17 Capricorn.  Mercury (now retrograde) squares Uranus on both January 20 and 31, and then aligns with Pluto on January 22 and 29. The previous transit of Mercury to Uranus/Pluto was last December 19-20, so events occurring now can relate back to that time.  This can be a challenging period for travel and communications. It is best to be on guard for possible accidents, misunderstandings, travel mishaps and computer breakdowns. It is favorable to cultivate more patience and flexibility at this time. Mercury turns direct on January 25 at 15 Capricorn, which initiates a period of returning to more harmony and clarity.

In the midst of the above cycle, we also begin a very favorable alignment of Jupiter and the North Node at 23 Virgo on January 23 that will last until mid-February.  The North Node represents new growth opportunities that can come through beneficial connections and moving towards our greater destiny. At this time we can draw in a new relationship that helps us to clarify our life purpose or take the next practical steps to successfully reach our goals.

The Full Moon occurs on January 23 at 3 Leo 29.  The Leo/Aquarius combination suggests that balance needs to be found between individual self-expression and aligning with a community of like-minded others.  How can we use our creativity and enthusiasm at this time to work with others for the common good?  This lunation aligns with the asteroid Pallas, which represents design and the use of strategy to further one’s goals.  Issues connected with women’s rights may also be brought into focus at this time. The Sabian symbols for these degree areas, “A formally dressed elderly man stands near trophies he brought back from a hunting expedition,” and “A Hindu yogi demonstrates his healing powers,” suggests moving beyond a false display of power to a truer sense of spiritual power that expresses balance, strength and healing.

Thank you to all my readers and supporters this past year.  Blessings for a happy and peaceful New Year!

Planet Alert January 2016

Welcome to 2016, the year of many changes on all levels. Last year was a number 8 year and that number rules birth, death, and money. Speaking of money; I just saw on the web that a huge amount of gold was stolen from the Gold Arab Emirate, which is like a bank but it trades in gold. The GAE is in Dubai. This theft occurred recently, and the news of this event just became known to the world. This theft was done by the upper management of the GAE. According to an article I read on the Internet, these people just disappeared from sight. Who do those people really work for, and how will this event affect the world? It’s my understanding that the new banking system is based on gold. Will this new banking system be affected at all by this event? The stolen gold was apparently hidden in a bank in Switzerland.   Here is a link to that article: The One Gold Scandal That Goes To The Very Top & The Plot Thickens.

We are just entering the year 2016 (20/16), and on February 8th we will move into The Year of the Monkey. The Monkey is more fun than the year of the sheep was, so let’s have a good time this year. The Monkey likes to play. This year adds up to the number 9.  Nine is the number of endings and new beginnings. It is also the number of love. The number 16 will also be dominant this year, which is the Tarot card called ‘The Tower Struck with Lightning’. The number 20 is the number of Judgment, and judgment is what we have experienced since we left the Garden of Eden. Isn’t it time to stop judging? God does not judge us, we judge ourselves.

With all of the destruction that is occurring on 3D Earth, I think it is time to move permanently into a higher frequency time-line of magic and miracles. To reach this higher time-line, we have to increase our frequency to the same frequency as that time-line. Are you ready to stop judging? That is the secret of manifesting unconditional love. This automatically pushes you into a higher frequency time-line.

On the full moon of December 25, the planet Uranus turned direct on 16 degrees Aries. It will stay there until January 26. On Christmas Day Uranus made an exact conjunction to Lilith, the Goddess. Watch out world, the women are now ready to take their part in changing the world vibration to one of love. Male energy holds the space for love, and women activate this force. Love is all there is. It is the glue that holds everything together. Not only did Uranus turn direct on Christmas Day, all of the planets in our solar system are in forward motion until January 6. We are now moving full speed ahead, and watch what happens next. It’s time to buckle your seat belt.

Uranus is the planet of light, and it also rules revolutions. I think this aspect of turning direct indicates that a larger revolution of freedom is about to begin. When Uranus moved into the sign Aries in January of 2011, the revolution in Tunisia occurred which started the third world war. The prophecy was that the third world war would start in North Africa and then it would encompass all of the Middle East Countries.  Now it is climaxing in Syria, and many countries are now participating in this war. How long will this war last?

I think that the next part of this revolution will be a large cry for freedom. Look at all the refugees that fled Syria to get away from the war zone, and to live in a new country that is still free and peaceful. This has been the largest migration of refugees in history. They were willing to give up their lives for freedom, and to live in peace. Uranus is in the fire sign Aries, and Saturn is in the fire sign Sagittarius. I doubt if anyone will be able to control anyone much longer. Have you ever tried to tell an Aries, or a Sagittarian what to do?  Control will not work much longer.

On December 26 I received an email about an upcoming revolution in the United States. It’s an interesting video although they are blaming Obama for all of our problems. He is just a figure head; the real rulers are the world bankers who have controlled the world through money for years, and started all of the wars for their own personal gain. Here is a link to that video. We the People.

I was meditating on the day of the Winter Solstice, and came to the realization that Judgment was the original sin and this caused separation from God. Jesus said “Judge not, lest you be judged”. In the story of Genesis it says “And the Lord God took the man and put him in the Garden of Eden to till it and keep it. And the Lord God commanded the man saying “You may eat of every tree of the garden, except the tree of knowledge of good and evil, for the day you eat of it you shall die. Then Eve came along and ate from the tree of good and evil and told Adam to also eat the apple”. Then they were thrown out of the garden and existed in a world of good and evil, or separation from God. And women were blamed for seeking this knowledge and the rest is history.

Then I re-read my wonderful book called “Love without End-Jesus Speaks” by Glenda Green. She is an Artist and Jesus came to visit her, and talked to her face to face for a long time. This book is full of wisdom. It says about judgment “Only by returning to the heart will you find the direction of true growth, creation, production, and innocence. This was the story of Adam and Eve and the tree of knowledge of right and wrong. In order to gain more control over life they chose the world of mind-centered judgment and left the garden of heart-centered innocence. Adam and Eve are merely representatives of all your ancestors who made that choice, who then created an involvement with sin by accepting and forwarding the power of judgment. Now the consequences of judgment have to run full course until judgment self-consumes, and the error of judgment is universally exposed”.

The original sin was simply judgment. By judging, every being initiated there own consequences of separation. The long era of judgment has been man’s darkest night, but that will end soon when the last judgment has been made. The last judgment will be the judgment against judgment itself. At that time human consciousness at last will rise in splendor like a valiant bridegroom to join the bride, the Sacred Heart. This is the Holy Wedding which has been the dream of prophets. After this marriage occurs, there will be peace on Earth”.

If the original sin was judgment, why don’t we just stop judging? We tend to judge everything. How many times a day do you judge something or someone? Maybe we could just say STOP, I am not going to judge anyone, or anything anymore, including myself. I am not good or bad, I am God’s perfect child and I am not separated from God anymore. I am one with everything. If judgment was the first sin, and we now understand that, then the cycle is done. We can now become free to manifest our light to the fullest.  Remember, if you judge people, you do not have time to love them.

Because we are moving into a nine year, which is the year of love, we also need to learn all about our hearts. Jesus said “The real miracle of my crucifixion and resurrection is that the Sacred Heart was then restored to its position of sovereignty, and love claimed its victory over death”. Once I reinstated the hearts supremacy, all you have to do is to accept and try to apply this power in your own life. Your heart does not need to work its way back to God, for it never left God”. We are all connected to the God force by the spark of light that is within our hearts. All we have to do is connect to this God spark and we become one with everything.

The Sacred Heart is your magnetic center and it is very powerful. This means that you have the power to manifest anything you chose to experience. Seek ye first the kingdom of God, and then everything will be given unto you. This means do not judge, just manifest love and you will have all of the abundance you need to live a full and happy life. We are at the very beginning of a whole new creation. It’s like there is a blank screen in front of us, ready for us to create what we choose to experience. Have fun with your new creations.  So Be It!   I love you!
