Conscious Empowerment

Guest article by Mona Delfino. Look for her in the December issue of the Law of Attraction magazine!

We are certainly living in changing times! Everyone we speak to today seems to be experiencing internal shifts in their thinking, their feelings, and their personal lives. Most people are realizing that they are aware that their emotions are speaking to them differently now, and they are reacting to that more than ever. It feels like at times we aren’t even in charge of our own emotions, however, (and here is an interesting part) we actually ARE in charge! We are in charge of our own feelings, thoughts, and emotions because we are currently going through a cycle in time that is increasing and expanding our personal recognition of the Subconscious mind.

Our subconscious mind can be looked at as the programs that run the computer. What we see and witness on a daily basis is the monitor that only shows the one program. There are so many more in the subconscious that reveal themselves now through discomfort on different levels. The subconscious mind is opening up because we are ready to receive more input into our heart and into our brains. This is because the Universe is delivering a one-two punch for us to expand into a new reality. (At least life isn’t boring, right?) The more we allow these changes to occur, the more we will understand them in the long run and continue to co-create a new world together. This is really good news actually, and we can be very appreciative that this is happening no matter how strange it feels right now.

Do you remember hearing that the human brain is only being used at 6% of its capacity? I am venturing to say that because we are in a period of time that I call, “the growing mind”, that we are potentially using more of our brain right now. That doesn’t mean that we are intellectually smarter per se, however, it does mean that we are feeling more, understanding more, and coming from a sacred place deep within that continues to arise and wake up as time continues to unveil the true soul. We are becoming more expanded from within as time allows, and as much as WE allow. This is meant for us to carry a better composure, not buy into so many stressors, and to feel more resilient in times of change. The reason for this is factual and basically scientific in nature.

We are hearing more comments from NASA telling us that Solar Flare activity has increased and many of the particles from these flares are Earth directed. Some flares are measured at M Class, and some are X Class. When these flares occur, we are affected through an increase of vibration in our nervous systems. Our physiology changes and our mind actually can’t hold a thought the same way it used to. Do you notice that you can’t remember what day it is?? Time seems off, and maybe things ARE speeding up?

We can’t even explain why we are feeling fed up, impatient, or just plain uncomfortable. We have had four blood red full moons in the last year and a half, which is part of a Native American prophecy that the “changes are here” and we won’t ever go back to the way things were before. So in these changing times, we just need to know that all this is happening in order to introduce us to who we truly are inside. Buried feelings and deep patterns are emerging to allow us to feel ourselves being real to ourselves. By knowing this, we can actually change what we see that we do not like. By paying attention to being “in the moment”, we can decide to shift our emotions to a healthier reaction by acknowledging them, going into a different composure from the heart, and then breathing to release the drama of attachment. THIS IS CONSCIOUS EMPOWERMENT.

No longer do we have to buy into anything we have been taught unless we feel that it truly serves us. Our bodies are shifting through all this as well and our physiology can become stronger either in a difficult way or by improving rapidly. It really isn’t a negative or a positive, or even a good or bad… it’s much more than that. These are responses that are teaching us through the physical body so that we can learn about ourselves through our own “body language.

” For example, a condition has a meaning and a purpose, and every place in and on the body also has a meaning and a purpose. The left side of the body is the receiver and right is the giver. Arms are about what we carry in life. Legs are about moving forward. Hips and low back are support issues, breasts are nurturing. Neck is flexibility in life and feet are foundation. When it comes to conditions, diagnosis or dis-ease, these are mostly emotional causes. Our body will always respond to us. We cannot logically or even possibly separate our emotions, our mental thoughts, or our spiritual way of living. However, we can change them to create better health. Our body’s cells are made up of all the above, so in order to create a healthier human body, we need to create a healthier way of living.

We will find we have a new internal power now if we understand that resilience is brilliance and if we can trust who we are and who we are becoming. Look at life differently now from a self-empowering light and we will engage together to recognize that we ARE the medicine the world needs….inside and out! ~

The Gravity of Topsoil

Guest article By Alison McCabe, UK Astrologer

In microcosm and the macrocosm there is an acceleration of the light connecting the forces of gravity in the galaxy, the soil of the Earth and our bodies. This light is travelling through billions and billions of vibrating strings in colour rays. The energy travelling in the strings is not matter, it is dark matter comprised partly of Gravitons which as the name suggests are responding to the many forces of Gravity in the Universe. Gravity as we know is a core part of every planetary body, orbital patterns as well as black holes. Gravity is the composer of the song, the choreographer of the unfolding cosmic dance.

On an emotional and spiritual level paying attention to what happens in the spaces in between can help us greatly to connect with the ‘deeper magic’ at work. Any time we consciously connect with the forces of Gravity we attract the Gravitons to us creating a powerful force of anti matter, of life, death and rebirth. Practice holding it as a ball of energy in your hands and feel the power….and perhaps a bit of panic!

With Samhain New Moon in Scorpio on the 11th November we begin in earnest the descent into darkness and peace where our connection with the cosmos is greatly enhanced, particularly if we make the effort to sit in the darkness as far from noise and light pollution that we can manage. Recent archaeological evidence has shown that Celtic Kings were sacrificed at Samhain and would have been reborn in the Chambered Cairns across Britain at the Winter Solstice as the Priestess or Queen gave birth in the Womb of the Earth. These births were timed to coincide with the Sun entering the womb of the Goddess through the vaginal tunnel at either sunrise or sunset at Winter Solstice and on the Isle of Anglesey in Wales, UK the Druids went one step closer aligning the cairns to the transit of Venus. This New Moon is in a wonderful Sextile to Jupiter and Hygeia Goddess of Healing through Sleep and Dreams. This next cycle and the descent into darkness therefore hold the possibility of profound expansion of consciousness through embracing the darkness (In the Northern Hemisphere).

At this time of year the process of Mother Earth creating healthy topsoil through mulching and decay are pretty awesome to comprehend, so leave those leaves exactly where they are or put them somewhere where soil needs improving. The mushrooms in their many diverse forms are the willing helpers of this fundamental process of healthy life on Earth. Recently I have become involved with a Community Garden in Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire which was a landfill site many years ago and was razed in 2000 to create flood defences. The land has begun the long restoration needed to restore balance, but the poison caused by human interactions will take years to sort out……or perhaps not with the forces of Gravitons and Mushrooms to help! We are beginning a period of experimental energy healing with this land and it would be interesting to connect to anybody who has had success elsewhere.

In the microcosm, topsoil and the processes by which it is created, seems very much in resonance with the Black Holes of our galaxy, the most vast of which is the Galactic Centre. Two Female Centaurs Chariklo and Hylonome have been transiting the Galactic Centre for the past 6 months. Chariklo, wife of Chiron is a healer and yet in mythology largely invisible. She asks us to recognise the invisible forces and sometimes invisible people, such as carers, and the important role they play. Hylonome has similarities with Pallas Athena and Juno in that she was devoted to her other half and yet also a Warrior archetype. She may be said to be a repolarisation of the archetypes of Lover and Warrior to a powerful, integrated energy. It is truly a gift when a man (or partner) nurtures and celebrates the strength of a woman.

In the Druidic Teachings appearing through Celtic Myth the Body of the Goddess and the Land are One and this Goddess is exists within all people. She called Enid and is the Goddess of Sovereignty and above all she honours free will recognising that without it there is always a measure of enslavement. She has many resonances with Eris the Trans Neptunian body I wrote about in my last blog ….. both love the colour red. This cycle of purification of the land seems to be powerfully calling for purification of the body too. If our skin is topsoil and our bones rock, our cellular memory holding the space of infinity within and our bare feet touching the Earth as they were always meant to, who would we be then? Our cellular membranes are perfectly able to resonate with the Cosmic Strings of Vibrating Light too as we integrate the 7th Dimension. Entanglement Theory shows that as one particle changes, another even in another galaxy changes instantaneously. In many ways this healing and purification requires minimal effort and trusting that our bodies and the earth already know exactly what to do to restore harmony, balance and good health.

I specialise in Goddess Asteroid and Centaur charts for a deep soul reading. There is a Sacred Site trip to Anglesey, Wales, UK  from the 20th to 22nd December to experience the Winter Solstice alignments with a special group coming from Italy with Darshana who is a Holographic Light and Sound Healer. This is a very rare opportunity to be allowed in the sites in the UK at Winter Solstice. I would like to acknowledge information about Entanglement Theory learnt from my colleague Dr Jen Altman on The Living in the Quantum Light course we are presently facilitating. Please get in touch for more information about any of the above on

Planet Alert November 2015

The holiday of giving thanks is coming up soon. I love Thanksgiving! It’s the time to give thanks for whatever is important to you. Actually, it is a good idea to give thanks every day for your blessings. Let’s develop an “Attitude of Gratitude” and watch how your life changes for the better. Do you realize the effect negative thoughts have on your mind, body, and emotions? “The moment a negative thought enters your mind; your body releases acid, your aura decreases, your system’s functions are affected, your heart beat increases, your blood pressure increases, and unwanted hormones are released.  So Think Positive and Be Healthy”.

The last full moon on October 27th was in Taurus, and that is the sign that rules money. Have you had any money challenges lately, or around the time of that full moon? The first result was the taking away of money like an unexpected bill, or some kind of expense that came up that you were not expecting. The final result will probably be that this energy will turn around and you may get money from somewhere else, or the unexpected bill will be paid.

(I just heard there is another scandal with the Vatican Bank that showed up right after the Taurus full moon). Check out Vatican inspectors suspect key office was used for money laundering.

With Venus, Jupiter, and Mars all in Virgo, this should be good for the people born in that sign, unless they have a negative planet opposing those planets. If you look up in the heavens for the next few nights you will be able to see this conjunction. The sun is now moving through the sign of Scorpio. That sign effects the Middle East and the West Coast. We are having a wind storm right now as I am writing this article. It’s not that bad where I live, just a little windy and lots of rain.

The Middle East is another story. A Russian plane just crashed in Egypt and of course the war in Syria is still occurring with lots of refugees still fleeing from that country. When Saturn moved into Sagittarius it started bringing in the energy to Pakistan, Afghanistan, and India where that large earthquake happened last week. Those are the countries that will be affected by Saturn for the next two and a half years.

The opposite side of the world that is affected by Saturn is Mexico, and the part of the United States that runs from the Cascade Mountains to the Mississippi River, which includes a lot of states. It is mostly effecting the lower states right now like Texas, which received a lot of rain from the hurricane that came through Mexico and up into the states, and the rain and flooding is still happening. Los Angeles is also under the rule of Saturn right now and has received a lot of rain.

Another part of the United States that is under the Sagittarius/Gemini energy is Wyoming where a crack in the Earth opened that is as big as seven football fields. If you haven’t seen that picture-here is a link Yellowstone crack. The next question is what caused this huge crack to open? Was it an unknown earthquake? Here is another link to check out Morning Report by Mary Greeley.

Another manifestation of the sun moving through Scorpio is the fact that more old thoughts from the past are again surfacing to look at and release. I thought this releasing would be all done by now for the ones who have been in this process for so long, although here it is in our faces again. When will we be able to manifest the New Energy all of the time? I guess that is something that happens when we are ready. How many of you got sick with this recent challenge of old stuff from the past? I caught a cold that put me down for a week. I haven’t had a cold/flu since 2007. More stuff to look at and release. Hope the energy changes when we get out of this Scorpio energy. The challenge is to be happy no matter what is going on around you and look at the funny side of life.

I just heard on TV that Obama announced some major changes in the prison system. It’s about time. They are going to offer housing and schooling and help for prisoners who are recently released so they can become part of society again. This is part of the Scorpio energy that is the deep dark stuff that is/has been in all of us and the release of that energy to make room for the light. Some people chose a hard way to release their stuff by being in prison.

Scorpio is a water sign and affects our emotions, especially deep dark emotions. Sagittarius is a fire sign and rules religion, law, lawyers, mountains, spirituality, the banking system, and freedom. I like the freedom energy. Now that Saturn is in Sagittarius it’s time for freedom to manifest. This is why it doesn’t register with me when people say that the New World Order is now going to control us. They have been controlling us for years. I say it is time for control to end. With Saturn in Sagittarius and Uranus in Aries, which are both freedom loving signs, I don’t see how control could still be on the agenda for much longer. And both of those signs have a ‘don’t tell me what to do attitude’.

The transforming planet Pluto is still affecting Washington D.C. and there is lots of transformation going on in that city. The first event is that we have a new Speaker of the House. I like the way Paul Ryan stood up for himself and set his conditions for being the Speaker of the House. One of the conditions was that he could have weekends off so he could spend time with his family. This shows me that he really loves his family. I hope he has that same love for humanity. Now let’s see what he will do with his new job. Pluto is in direct motion so its energy for transformation is very powerful. What is next on the agenda for the transformation of our government?

Uranus is still very powerful in its retrograde motion. It’s appears like it is standing still in the heavens stirring up storms and effecting electricity. These storms are being felt all over the world and will continue to happen and get stronger because we are in the time of the great Earth changes. Hopefully you are in a safe place to ride out these storms. This energy is also affecting our technology and causing problems. Have you had computer, phone, or cell phone problems lately? You are not alone in that challenge.

Another reason we are having so many storms and water events is that Neptune is retrograde in the water sign Pisces. It is also like she is standing still in the heavens and stirring up a lot of energy. Her affects will last at least through the end of this year because Neptune remains on seven degrees Pisces for that time period. Pisces rules big time emotions, so please keep your cool.

On November 22 the sun moves into Sagittarius, and hopefully the next thirty days will be a much happier time period. For those of us who live in the United States let’s make Thanksgiving a wonderful holiday. I also like to celebrate on the Winter Solstice of December 21st.  The sun is still in Sagittarius at that time just ready to turn into Capricorn. The energy of Sagittarius is much lighter and happier than the energy of Capricorn, which is in effect on Christmas. No wonder that holiday became so commercial.

Maybe it is time to create some new holidays for the New Age. Maybe we could turn Valentine’s Day into the celebration of Universal Love. After all “Love is the glue that holds the Universe together.”  It is the God Force.  And we are all connected to this force, which means we are all one. Love is all there is!   So Be It!

Lots of blessings to everyone and have a very Happy Thanksgiving.

Is anyone interested in getting an Edgar Cayce Past Life chart for $30? They make nice gifts for the person who has everything. If so, send me the birth information and go into and look for and donate $30.   The past life charts are the only ones I do now because the regular charts take too much time. I send lots of love to everyone.

Astrology Report for November

Guest article by Dorene Carrel

Mercury is highlighted this month, bringing focus to our communication, ideas and how we process new information.  Neptune turns direct and is being challenged by Saturn, which suggests that we are dissolving old structures while stirring up new dreams and visions.  Chiron also turns direct, bringing up areas that may need attention and healing.   We are still under the October Libra new moon cycle until November 11, with a focus on relationships, equality and achieving greater balance.

Venus aligns with Mars in Virgo on November 2, which makes this day highly favorable for romantic encounters or creative pursuits.  The Virgo focus brings in the qualities of dedication, service and attention to detail.  On November 8, Venus enters Libra and aligns with the North Node, reminding us that relationships are also part of our spiritual path leading to higher growth.  There may be a significant meeting under this influence, especially for those born around November 7-9.

The New Moon occurs on November 11 at 19 Scorpio.  It aligns with Mercury, Chiron, Jupiter and Uranus.  Scorpio brings an introspective mood, favoring secrets and mysteries, along with intensity, power, mastery and capacity for transformation.   Mercury in Scorpio favors a deeper intuitive awareness, with Chiron and Jupiter bringing healing and a broader perspective.  The challenge from Uranus suggests the need for adjustments to unexpected changes.  Be prepared for sudden storms or other earth changes. The Sabian symbol for this degree, “A parrot repeats the conversation he has overheard; the capacity to transmit transcendental knowledge.” suggests that we can now evolve through learning to communicate from higher levels of awareness.

On November 18 Neptune turns direct at 7 Pisces.  This is a good week for a spiritual retreat, meditation and creative visualization. It is best to avoid making important decisions now because there may be confusion and lack of clarity.  After the Sun enters Sagittarius on November 22, there is a shift towards more energy, action and positive forward momentum.

The Full Moon occurs on November 25 at 3 Gemini.  It aligns with Mercury, Saturn, Neptune, Mars and Ceres.  Favorable Gemini traits are being curious, versatile and adaptable. Mercury, the natural ruler of Gemini is in Sagittarius, the opposite sign.  This period is favorable for focused learning that includes a higher perspective.  Neptune forms a challenging square to this lunation, which suggests that confusion or deception can affect us.  We may want to act, but could feel blocked by certain fears and anxieties.  A harmonious aspect to Ceres indicates it is favorable to reach out for support or make adjustments to our diet and fitness routine.  The Sabian symbol keynotes for these degrees, “A longing for the preintellectual state of consciousness,” and “The natural assistance of superior powers during crises of growth,” suggest moving beyond the intellectual mind in developing greater perception and awareness.

Saturn in Sagittarius forms a challenging square to Neptune in Pisces on November 26. This aspect reinforces the above Neptune aspects of confusion or deception, but it also brings the dissolving of worn-out structures. There may be a need to let go of a feeling of being victimized or helpless and to take concrete steps for resolution.  We may see how to take a more practical approach to manifesting our dreams and ideals.  On November 27 Chiron turns direct, bringing us greater awareness of our journey towards healing and wholeness.

December brings a direct Uranus station.  Blessings for a joyful autumn!

Eris Arising at the New Moon

Eris Arising at the New Moon

by Alison McCabe, contact

At this New Moon cycle, following hot on the heels of the eclipses which have left us reeling with the incoming power of the Galactic Centre Song, Eris arises from the underworld as a powerful Dark Goddess presence.

Eris is used to causing a stir. In the most famous myth about her she is not invited to a party. Furious she throws an apple into the proceedings with the words on it ‘to the fairest’ which causes great discord among the other guests. Angelina Jolie played an insightful version of one of the aspects of Eris which is the scorned and alienated woman in Maleficent. Eris has a complex cauldron of emotional make up and usually what we first see is anger but as an expression of grief.


Eris was discovered on the 5th January 2005 and her discovery, like that of Uranus, was to overturn many facts taken for granted about our solar system as she was larger than Pluto and orbiting the Sun very slowly every 557 years. On the verge of being named the Tenth planet astronomers made the extraordinary decision to downgrade Pluto to a Dwarf Planet and upgrade Ceres from asteroid to the same status. It seems therefore that both Eris as a Dark Goddess and Ceres as the Mother Goddess play crucial roles in transforming the power of Pluto.

Eris was initially named Xena Warrior Princess and Persephone but later Eris was chosen. Eris is the daughter of Nyx one of the Five Moons of Pluto and also the sister of bloodthirsty Ares. One remarkable coincidence, given Persephone is in the Asteroid Belt and Eris a Trans Neptunian object, is that they share a similar steeply inclined ecliptic thus appearing to journey to both the upper and lower worlds in their journeys. Eris shares much of Persephone’s character in that she is initiated into her true power by her journey into the Underworld as are many Goddeses. It is only through the hearing, owning and integrating into the psyche of emotions such as anger, sorrow and betrayal that we become whole human beings.

Eris also has much in common with Black Moon Lilith as the exiled and invisible woman. On the date of her discovery Eris was at 19 degrees Aries forming a T Square with Black Moon Lilith and the Sun on the Cancer Capricorn axis. Ten years later she is now at 22 degrees Aries. Why then should Eris have suddenly burst into new light now like a supernova exploding from the neck of a great cat? Pluto is strongly activating her discovery position by transiting the mid heaven and the course of the Blood Moon eclipses evolving over the past few years is very much the same all important Aries Libra axis. It seems we are now ready for Eris at a higher octave!

Eris may be experienced as both personal rage at having ones boundaries stepped over or feeling exiled or in the collective as decisive anger about environmental issues. She may have a particular resonance with issues such as seeds and retaining their original evolutionary patterns. In a recent group meditation she was seen by a number of people independently as having feline qualities and is perhaps an aspect of Egyptian Sekhmet who mauled human beings for their corrupt ways and disrespect of the earth. The colour red in ribbons, cloaks and pyramids were other potent symbols associated with Eris. Her presence is holographic and otherworldly and she comes to empower the Eco Warriors and the Children of the Light.

She also has a ruby red resonance with Gene Key 55 associated with integration of the ‘shadow self’ which essentially are the very powerful and raw emotions we are afraid to own as human beings. If you find yourself having an Eris uprising in the next Moon cycle embrace her and listen to her wisdom within. Let’s warmly invite Eris to join this party on Earth as she is greatly needed.

Astrology Report for October

Guest article By Dorene Carrel

October features harmonious Jupiter alignments with Mars and Venus, which will help us to stay energized, inspired and optimistic about the future. These three planets are also in trine to Pluto, enhancing luck, prosperity and deeper insights. We begin the month still under the September Virgo new moon cycle, with a focus on work, health and service.  There is also a Libra emphasis this month, which brings in relationships and our need for balance, equality and harmony.  As Mercury in Libra is still retrograde, caution and flexibility is advised for daily business and travels.

On October 6 Mars in Virgo opposes Neptune in Pisces, which can bring feelings of defeat and confusion. On this same day, the Libra Sun squares Pluto in Capricorn, which can bring up fears and a need for more control.  It is favorable to ask for spiritual help and guidance; more clarity will likely come later in the month.

Mercury finally turns direct at 1 Libra on October 9.  We can now gradually move forward again with a new sense of direction and order.   On October 8-10 Mercury will align with the North Node, highlighting the areas of relationships and communication.  On October 10, Venus in Virgo squares Saturn in Sagittarius, which may result in a feeling of being undervalued and misunderstood.  It is best to seek our own validation and approval at this time, while striving for more understanding and compassion.

On October 11, Jupiter in Virgo forms a harmonious trine to Pluto in Capricorn.  This is the first of three trines between these two planets, with the other two trines occurring next year.  This trine between earth signs can bring prosperity and good luck, especially to those who have done both inner and outer preparation. This aspect favors projects that bring benefit to large networks and communities.  It is also a good time to strive for a deeper understanding of our beliefs and how they manifest in our lives.

The New Moon occurs on October 12 at 19 Libra.  It opposes Uranus in Aries and makes a wide square to Pluto in Capricorn.  The focus is on partnerships, relationships and striving for balance, equality and harmony in all areas.  There may be a sense of rebelliousness now, along with sudden new insights and perceptions.  This can result in a new awareness of the power dynamics in relationships, or how to use one’s own personal power in a more effective way.  The challenge will be to achieve an appropriate balance between freedom and closeness, without sacrificing one for the other.  The Sabian symbol for this degree, “A rabbi performing his duties; the ability to draw on the power of an ancestral tradition in order to serve and inspire one’s fellowmen,” suggests that certain spiritual traditions and learning from our past can give us new inspiration that is helpful to ourselves and others.

Mars trines Pluto on October 15 and goes on to conjunct Jupiter on October 17. Any new projects that began under the Jupiter/Pluto trine on October 11 will receive a boost of inspiration, energy and resources at this time.  This high energy cycle is especially good for starting a new enterprise or fitness/exercise routine.

Venus trines Pluto on October 23 and goes on to conjunct Jupiter on October 25. Relationships come into focus at this time, with Pluto encouraging us to strive for a deeper understanding that can bring more intimacy.  With Venus/Jupiter in Virgo, we can visualize the highest outcome and then take concrete steps to manifest it.  There is enjoyment from taking a more purposeful socializing approach, such as matching people up with partners or projects.  This is the third of three Venus/Jupiter conjunctions this past year, with the other two occurring on July 1 and August 4. You will now have a chance to finish something that was begun during these earlier periods that could relate to romance, finances or creativity.

On October 27 the Full Moon occurs at 4 Taurus.  This is the third of three Super Full Moons in a row, which brings larger shifts in consciousness.  This lunation makes a challenging inconjunct to Saturn, along with a harmonious sextile to Neptune. New emotional tensions can arise, especially in the home/family areas, which can be lessened by taking a more spiritual approach. Visualize the highest outcome for all concerned.  Taurus themes include being dependable, loyal, stable and stubborn. The Sabian symbols for these degree areas, “The pot of gold at the end of the rainbow,” and “A youth carries a lighted candle in a devotional ritual,” suggest we always need to keep our highest intentions in mind on a daily basis.

In November, Venus aligns with Mars and Neptune turns direct.  Blessings for a peaceful and prosperous month.

Planet Alert October 2015

I am writing this article on Sunday afternoon at 3:30 pm waiting for the super full moon blood red eclipse to occur outside of my living room windows starting around 6:00 PM. (Today is the 28th and I watched it last night and it was awesome.) The energy from this full moon was more wonderful than I expected. The last few days have been energetically awesome. We are at the very beginning of the manifestation of the energy of the Age of Aquarius.

We had the Pope’s visit, the signing of the document for change by the United Nations, and the beginning of the energy from the Global Citizen group who had their festival in Central Park in New York on Saturday September 26. Their goal is to change the world for the better and to see that the United Nations lives up to the contract they signed to change the world.  Check out the Global 2030 Agenda. This is the agenda signed by the United Nation countries. Then check out the Global Citizens group at Global Citizens Festival website. (Editor: or

Major change is happening right now. It started with the solar eclipse on Sept 12-13, depending on where you live. The weekend of the 12-13 was like magic. The love energy in my area was so wonderful that everyone I knew felt it very strongly. The energy that starts at a new moon culminates at the full moon. The culmination of this energy started when Pope Francis came to the United States on Wed September 23, and the energy is manifesting for several more days with the meeting of Obama and Putin today and with the Cuban president on Tuesday along with the president of Kazakhstan. There were several leaders that showed up for this major event at the United Nations.

How many of you know about the new city that is called Astana and is the capital of Kazakhstan? They started building this city in 1997 and since 2003 the leaders of many religions around the world have been meeting in this capital to start the process of creating a new religion where people can live in peace. This new religion will be based on love and on people recognizing and honoring all people’s beliefs and hopefully stop the religious fighting that has been going on for thousands of years. (Editor: Search Google or YouTube for ‘astana kazakhstan religion’ or ‘Congress of Religious Leaders‘ or get introduced via this article at The Astana Times)

The meaning of the degree of the solar eclipse on Sept 12 at 11:41 pm PDT was “The spirit’s answer to the vital needs of whatever became individualized out of its infinite ocean of potentialities. All cycles end in an essential duality of success and failure, just as every release of new potentiality at the start of a cycle is inevitably polarized in two opposite directions, becoming sharply differentiated as the mystical separation of the sheep and the goat”. Symbolically as I look at it, this is the separation of the old and the New World.

So many people have been looking for the New World Order to come to pass. I’m saying that the New World Order has been in effect for many years. We have been under total control and have not been free for a long time. Now, freedom is finally opening up for us although to obtain this goal of freedom we have to concentrate on keeping our thoughts on positive events. The people who continue to focus on negativity will not be able to participate in this new dimensional shift that has just occurred. Negativity affects your body and you end up sick. It releases acid into your body and your whole body system is affected by negative thought. Please make an effort to keep your thoughts on positive events so we can create this world of love.

There was also a negative transit in this full moon chart and that is the square between Mars on 1 degree Virgo and Saturn on 1 degree Sagittarius. This portends a military struggle between nations. Hopefully these leaders can settle this challenge peacefully so it does not turn into more war in the Middle East. Obama and Putin met today to discuss this challenge. We’ll see what comes out of this meeting. Let’s focus on peace within ourselves and all around us.

Then the degree of the lunar eclipse on Sept 27th is “A man revealing to his students the foundation of an inner knowledge upon which a New World can be built. This means that the necessity of the youthful spirits to learn from a teacher who through his long experience has been able to reach solid and illuminating truths and ideas. When the student is ready the Master appears. Devotion to a guru may be the way, but sooner or later it should be transmuted into reverence; the truth within the disciple saluting in true humility the truth in the Teacher”. It was no accident that the Pope appeared in the USA during this full moon. He came here to express peace and love and this love was felt by millions of people.

The planet Pluto turned direct on 13 degrees Capricorn on September 25th. This degree of Capricorn/Cancer rules both Washington D.C. and China, when another planet is on 13 degrees Cancer. Our capital was definitely in the spot-light with the visit of the Pope, and the president of China also came to Washington D.C. along with Putin. The sign of Capricorn rules governments, corporations, structures, and the Pope. Pluto is the planet of transformation and the Pope was here to help transform our government. This started by the Speaker of the House, John Boehner, resigning. This was a really big deal and now others can change because Pluto will cause more transformation.

Maybe our congress will learn that you can get more done by working together than you can by fighting each other. Lilith, the dark moon, or hidden Goddess was on 14 degrees Cancer at this eclipse, in exact opposition to Pluto. She says “Let’s get some transformation going here in the government of the United States and lets invite the Pope so people can feel his energy and open up their hearts so they can feel love, including the people in our congress.”

Also, on this eclipse chart Jupiter was in exact opposition to Neptune. This means that practical discipline is needed during this transit to maintain a grip on reality. Subconscious distortions and neurotic escapist tendencies may surface at this time. Jupiter rules religion and Neptune is considered the female higher Goddess who could be deceptive at times although that cycle is now over.  Neptune has now come through her challenges and has become a great planet of light so she can be considered positive now instead of negative, as witnessed by the movie Frozen. That movie was all about the fall of Neptune and how it is now transformed into expressing love.

Many people think that this Pope is the Anti-Pope. I say look at his actions, hasn’t he been working to transform the Catholic Church? Isn’t that the work of an Anti-Pope because he goes against the establishment? The first thing he did was to transform the Vatican Bank, which was the most powerful bank in the world. That bank needed to be transformed. Now he is working on changing the old laws that have been in effect for a long time, and to dismiss the Catholic clergy who had been molesting children. That left a scar on the church for a long time. It’s time for change.

The energy of the past two weeks has changed me to the core. I realized that religion, or spirituality will be the focus for the next two years because Saturn is in Sagittarius, which rules the higher mind. A great awakening will happen to many people when they realize that God is within, and we are all connected to each other by this spark of light. The old religion of control will transform into the fact that we are all one, and what we do to someone else will come back to us almost immediately. It is definitely time to think with our hearts.

The birth of the new has happened and the baby has been born. Now it is time to nurture the new baby and watch it grow. In the Dreamspell calendar the glyph for this eclipse is The Red Galactic Earth and it rules birth. It’s time to create a new Earth. What do you want to create? Is it an abundant life for everyone, a world of peace and happiness with everyone talking out their differences instead of fighting, or freedom to be who you are and to speak your truth?

Saturn is now in Sagittarius and that sign also rules freedom. The refugees created a big drama for us to watch. It is the great exodus, and symbolic of the Moses drama. They are looking for freedom and a better life and so are many other people. It’s now up to us to create this new reality. So Be It!         I love all of you.       Mahala Gayle
