Guest Article by Alison McCabe (firstname.lastname@example.org)
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 (firstname.lastname@example.org).
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 email@example.com 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.

From the Heart
Guest article by Mona Delfino @ www.sacredreconnections.com.
When I woke up today, a feeling came over me that ignited my joy. I wasn’t sure at first why suddenly I’d wake from a sound sleep with such a feeling of bliss. So I went into my heart, still laying in bed, and simply asked as I delved into the joy.
The answer I received was clear; “You are in a moment of clarity as to who your soul is.”
So I began to look into that. A deeper, qualified explanation of soul emerged as I was still enjoying this feeling. It was all encompassing, all oneness within everything without any preconceived idea, judgment, expectation, hope, or anything the mind has been used to. I was simply happy.
I do presentations and events, speaking about ascension in the human body. Being a born Shaman in consciousness and retaining memory since I was 6 months old, I clearly was born a true healer. Therefore, after 32 years of really helping people heal, teaching, recognizing truths within and without about medical conditions, emotions, etc., I pondered this entire connection in one moment upon my waking. So today, I’m sharing with you some special truths about greatness of times we are in.
We are all unraveling to the soul. The soul is the core meaning of life directed at learning more on this magnificent planet as to become even greater. That is why we are in these extreme times. It’s not about disproving what our like and dislikes are, or even about if we are liked or disliked. It simply is just being in the moment and appreciating that we have opportunities always knocking to be heard, accepted and understood. We have come from so much judgment that it has seemed to be an uphill battle for many. When in truth, it is clearly unnecessary.
We make up our lives, and we see better by learning, but judge when we don’t succeed in our minds eye to the extent that we gave permission and bought into other peoples judgments. Our standard of living has diminished and masks itself as a judgment if we are good, bad, right, or wrong. Then we even get impatient with that.
Life is getting bigger energetically and we have become blinded by the past. As we unravel ourselves, there will be pain as we learn to let go of what we thought life was supposed to be. Then we learn again that judgment was lurking and life needed to be taught one way or another. Some people get ill, and many are dying. But many are hungry for truth and peace. The stronger the lesson, the stronger the truth that had remained unseen.
Now we choose our direction and have finally learned judgment was an egocentric insecurity that prevented unconditional love to be present. When we pass from this Earth, we will once again be united with our soul… and if we choose well, we will not have to repeat this life. However, it takes wisdom and inner allowance to facilitate us back to our core.
2015 is to be given applause as we continue a year of greatness. Boredom, lack of satisfaction, etc are very prominent in many today. I say take each moment in every day as a start in itself, then the unraveling will lead to the same greatness that this year presents. The Universe is changing and so are we. We just didn’t realize it’s all for the better.
Here’s to the heart, for it is the doorway to the soul, and the core motivator of all love.
Guest article by Alison McCabe.
Following my last blog there was a lot of interest in mushrooms and how they might relate to the Aquarian energies and Mayan prophecies. The approaching Total Solar eclipse over the crown of the British Isles, the fair Emerald Goddess at the Spring Equinox this year is an influx of the energies of endings and new beginnings and an important turning point in human consciousness. It seems a wonderful time to celebrate the transforming power of the mushroom.
It seems first a good idea to address the fear that many people have of mushrooms. Of course there are poisonous mushies but sometimes this fear seems to be something more than common sense. I recall as a child somebody saying “how can you trust something that grows in the dark and eats crap?.” I think this became a bumper sticker!
This ‘fear’ reminds me of the reaction to the Dark Goddess archetypes especially Lilith. Lilith has, like mushrooms, both visible and invisible parts. Black Moon Lilith is the energy field which forms the second center of our Moons orbit, the first center being the core of the Earth. She is invisible, veiled in darkness and yet her presence cannot be denied.
Also there is a visible asteroid Lilith and the star Algol in Scorpio known as the most ‘evil’ in the heavens; it is also associated with Lilith and Medusa. Sedna another dark goddess discovered right out near the Ort cloud has astronomers thinking there may be a twin sun to ours which is at present invisible, perhaps a Dark Mother sun. These dark goddesses have one thing in common; their sacred sexuality was violated and when they refused to be oppressed they were outcast.
Mushrooms, like the Dark Goddess, have many ‘invisible’ functions which are necessary for the balance of the eco system of Earth and human beings. Beneath the soil beautiful white mycelium resembling nerve endings and snowflakes send out billions of neuron messages. The mycelium of mushrooms extend deep into the earth with the fruit we see as one tiny part of the organism. Their invisible system helps other plants obtain nutrients, clean water, remineralize soil and even destroy noxious substances such as plastic and oil. The largest mycelium known is in Oregon, this Honey mushroom measures 22, 000 square feet! [Editors note: I think she means acres.] Oregon must be a very special place indeed.
In a recent You Tube video Paul Stamets [Editors note: she didn’t provide the link, this one might be close https://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_detailpage&v=XI5frPV58tY], one of the world leading mushroom advocates, talks of research showing that mycelium are able to communicate to other plants creating a ‘global mind’ of active consciousness beneath our feet. Very synchronistical this film arrived in my email the day I started writing this blog and it is well worth the twenty minutes of viewing. His wonderful book Mycelium Running: How Mushrooms Can Save the World shows how the Elm Oyster grown with vegetables increased the yield of crops by up to 400%.
The Aquarian energy is all about the development of the ‘global mind’ and a non-hierarchical and inclusive society. Mushrooms have an incredible diversity but one thing they have in common is that they interact with other species in a cooperative way. The Paul Stamets film shows bees drinking ecstatically from mycelium in mushroom beds of wood chippings and this delicious nectar from beneath the ground also fights viruses and bugs which are nearly wiping bees out in the last decade. Likewise as we experience massive earth changes in the electromagnetic field of our planet, environmental disaster and increasing volcanic activity across the globe we can expect to see an increase in viruses such as Ebola and health problems as our bodies try to adapt to the new energies. Viruses in particular may become more active as the fires within the belly of the earth boil and erupt through the mantle.
Medicinal mushrooms such as Rishi and Shitake have a mind boggling array of health problems they can address such as anti-viral, anti-cancer, anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial diseases. Mushrooms are the longest living life form on earth having survived various severe climate changes and they are the key to helping us adapt and keep our immune systems strong to cope with the unfolding changes.
One of the key mushrooms which relates to the development of the ‘global mind’ are Cordyceps and in my experience they do indeed give ‘super intelligence’ in the form of ‘making connections’. It feels very much that they are myceliating the brain, creating neural pathways between the left and right hemispheres and the primitive and frontal cortexes in the same way they work beneath the earth. It is highly possible that mushrooms hold the key to the next evolutionary stage of human development in the way high proteins found in seafood and meat did for our ancient ancestors who made the leap to Homo Sapiens.
The great thing about super intelligence is that we start to see the whole picture and realize that short term gain is not always a wise move on either an individual or collective level, and this thinking will then flow into how we behave towards each other. It felt very synchronistic today as I completed this article that a book called The Master and his Emissary by Ian McGilchrist crossed my path. Written by a a scientist of very high status within his own field of neuro science, Ian writes of his view that when the Right or creative brain takes control of the Left brain human beings function at a much higher level and see through a ‘global mind’. He talks of the dangers in Western society of focusing on the left brain and having lots of problems because of it.
Mushrooms I believe hold the key to assisting us to cross the Asteroid belt into the ‘global mind’ where we bring our whole and diverse selves to life and community. Mushrooms are above all else cooperative and inclusive and because of this they are a highly successful life form. There is a very high possibility that mushrooms arrived on our planet in the tail of a comet, and like plants such as Orchids are gifts from other ‘star realms’ to assist our evolution. The aliens have landed long ago and chances are you are walking above them!
The journey across the asteroid belt which develops the ‘global mind’ requires the integration of the Goddess archetypes for women and men and the transformation of Chiron the Wounded Healer to open our hearts to empathy and compassion for others. As one of the greatest polarizations in the world is between Christianity, Judaism and the Muslim religion it seems also an important time to call the Goddess back into these religions in her many forms as Stellar Maris Mother of the Sea, Ashara Lady of the Sea and Al Uzza Goddess of the Morning Star. The Blood Moons have awakened the realization that many of the most holy days in all major religions are aligned with Moon cycles and feminine consciousness in their pure form. We have two more Blood Moons in April and October this year so take some time to have a multi faith celebration for World Peace.
I’d like to share a little story about my dog Penny who is 13 years old and has arthritis. On Christmas morning she woke up and her back legs went and she was crying. In desperation I decided to try her on a pinch of my mushroom immune blend I take each day after checking on was it poisonous to dogs. Early signs are very promising, and she has a new lease on life. She started doing her evening patrol of the perimeter of the garden again after almost a year, and she also has been playing much more with our younger dog Bongo. I’m calling her my myceliated hound and she loves it!
I’m starting a new group in Lancashire, UK with neuroscientist Dr. Jen Altman called The Mystical Physiology of the Body: Exploring the Interface of New Paradigm Science and the Ancient Cosmic teachings. If you live close by and would like to come along get in touch. We would also be very happy to deliver this workshop elsewhere!

I can’t believe we are almost in February, where does the time go? Doesn’t it seem like just yesterday it was Christmas? As I am writing this article (January 26) a large Asteroid just passed by Earth and a major storm is in the process of happening on the East Coast. When there is a disturbance in the heavens something always manifests on Earth. As above, so below. It was also a manifestation of the moon triggering the Uranus/Pluto square and Pluto affecting the East Coast. Mercury, which rules storms, was retrograde in Aquarius and Uranus is the ruler of Aquarius.
We will have the seventh and last Uranus/Pluto square in March of this year. The square will be exact with Uranus on 15 degrees Aries (which was the degree of the moon at the last lunar eclipse) and Pluto on 15 degrees Capricorn from March 11 to 28th. We have been in the process of transforming ourselves big time since December of 2012. Uranus rules change and Pluto is the transformer. These squares have been activating our chakras and this last one will be activating our Crown Chakra, which I have already started feeling.
There will be a lot of changes this year, hopefully good ones. We move totally into the Year of the Wood Sheep on February 18th at 3:47 PM PST. A friend sent me an email this morning that said we started feeling the energy of the Year of the Sheep in mid-January, and this energy will be fully transitioned by February 4th. The email said “this is the time you will want your remedies, enhancements, and affirmations for the year to be in place”. Check out: White Lotus Feng Shui
The Year of the Sheep corresponds to the energy of Cancer in Western Astrology. This means there will be a very calm gentle energy this year. Being this is the year of the Wood Sheep it will be more stable and not so chaotic. This loving Sheep will have complete trust in those he believes are worthy of his trust. This will be a year when rewards will come to us from past deeds, and we will receive financial help because the Sheep always has money.
I have always liked the month of February because it is usually starting to warm up here in the Pacific Northwest, and we have Valentine’s Day, which is the celebration of love. I like to think of it as universal love. Wouldn’t it be nice if we could all celebrate this holiday as universal love? After all love is the glue that holds the universe together. Most people have no idea how powerful love is. If we would just unconditionally love and accept ourselves, we would soon be in our power and able to change this world from one of chaos to one of love.
From now to the Spring Equinox there will be a lot of changes happening. And then at the time of the Equinox there will be a Uranus/Pluto square and a new moon solar eclipse. This eclipse will be seen over Orkney Island in Scotland. In the Mayan Dreamspell Calendar this is where the energy from the Central Sun comes to Earth. This energy is also felt at Stonehenge and has been measured by scientists. It is very powerful energy. This is why the story of Avalon was set in those areas. According to legend, Avalon disappeared into the mists or higher dimension. We need to be prepared for this tremendous energy that will be coming to Earth at that time and concentrate on manifesting total unconditional love. There is an article on my blog written by an Astrologer named Alison McCabe who lives in the UK. Check it out: www.mahalasastrology.com
Shortly after the Spring Equinox on April 4th there will be a blood red full moon eclipse, which is also on the first day of the Jewish Passover. Last year the same thing happened and there was war between the Ukraine and Russia. What will happen this year? We do have some money challenges occurring right now. The Banking System will be one of the highlights this year.
Jesus overthrew the money changers in Herod’s Temple during the Passover festival. He accused them of turning the Temple into a den of thieves through their commercial activities. The Templars are the ones who started our banking system. The Templars were digging at the Temple ruins in 900 AD when they found some important information which they took to Scotland and it made them very wealthy. Then on August 1, 1291 they secured their future by setting up their headquarters in Switzerland. This is why the Swiss flag remains a Templar flag in the same red and white colors, and this shield is still shown, with the Templar’s cross on it, at the front of all the Swiss embassies.
The Swiss bank has massive Gold in its possession. Much of the ancient Gold from Egypt and Jerusalem was transported to Switzerland. At the time of the Second World War Gold and other jewels were taken from the Jewish people before they were executed in Germany and the Gold was sent to the Swiss bank. The Swiss bank became the bank of Hitler, and Switzerland was allowed to be neutral during the war because of their bank.
The Templars in France, who escaped the massacre of October 13, 1307, escaped to Scotland where they helped Robert the Bruce conquer England. In that same year they gained control of the British Monarchy, and their next step was the Vatican. Have you ever noticed the Swiss guards at the Vatican? The Templars became the Freemasons in 1717 and founded America in 1776. They worshiped the Goddess Isis and the star Venus. The Statue of Liberty (Isis) was sent to us from the French lodge.
It’s my understanding that there is more than one branch of the Templars. One branch wants to control the world and the other one to take down the power of the controllers. This battle has raged for many years and is coming to a climax right now. On January 15, 2015 the Swiss Central Bank stunned the market with a policy U-turn when it announced it would no longer hold the Swiss franc at a fixed exchange with the Euro. There was panic. A number of Hedge Funds across the world had big losses and the Swiss Stock Market collapsed. Why did they do that? Do they know something we do not know? I feel a big change coming. Watch what happens in the world financial market.
Then we have other events happening in our world. Do you know what the beautiful comet Love-Joy did as it was passing through Orion, Sirius, and the Pleiades? It caused a disturbance in our solar system. According to Celia Fenn who says “The comet is creating a disturbance in the field. This disturbance has the ability to influence the gravitational orbit of celestial bodies, as well as Timelines. Yes, Timelines are anchored in electro-magnetic energies as well and disturbance in the field can also create disturbances that affect Timelines”.
“In this case, the disturbances in the field create a potential relationship and a new timeline with Sirius, Orion and the Pleiades that reflects Earth’s new status in the Galaxy as an ascending Multi-Dimensional planet. This means that the Earth will assume an honorary status on the Solar Council, and these other member bodies will be working in harmony and co-operation with the Earth Councils. They will be working with us as equals as we tell them what we need and how we would like their assistance in our work”. Please check out her message at comet-lovejoy-and-the-siriuspleaides-pertubation.
I felt the disturbance in our solar system by being dizzy. I was dizzy from December 8 through January 26th. The first week it was pretty bad until it changed and I was just dizzy at night. I was also going through many different Ascension symptoms during that time period which caused physical reactions in my body. I had a dream that we came out of a dark tunnel on January 16th and we are now on a new Timeline with a soon to be new financial system. Those who are ready will be able to manifest on this new Timeline, which is a higher frequency Earth. So Be It!
I am still doing Edgar Cayce Past Life Readings for a donation of $30. It is a computer generated report all about you. If you are interested please email me at email@example.com with reading in the subject line.
Lots of love to everyone.

The Total Solar Eclipse on the 20th March 2015 is a vitally important energy portal. Firstly falling at the Spring Equinox as the Sun enters a new solar cycle it marks a new beginning.
The eclipse falls in the middle of the 4 Blood Moon lunar eclipses in which the Sun and Moon have become glorious cosmic juggling balls soaring between Aries and Libra. Aries is the sign of the ‘self’ and Libra the sign of ‘relationship’. In 2014 these lunar eclipses have been challenging us at a deep level to find a balance in creating sacred space to nurture ourselves and follow our dreams and deepen our bonds to partners, family or friends or end relationships which are too difficult.
Here in West Yorkshire we are a small group of women (celestial lightworkers) and the predominant theme has been being struck with illness and intolerable stress looking after others. The Goddess asteroids, which have been also very important in these eclipses such as the Ceres Vesta conjunction, are asking us to process guilt motivated caring and break down old gender roles.
Vesta asks us to bring spirituality back to the hearth of the home and out of the hands of the patriarchy. Ceres is almost exactly the same size as the British Isles and has a great affinity with the emerging energies here. Campaigns against ‘fracking’ have joined people globally against the destruction of Mother Earth’s inner sanctity which is another emerging Ceres Vesta theme. We are also being called to reintegrate the wisdom of the feminine into major religions and are reminded that holy days for a number of religions are intricately connected to the emerging consciousness of the Goddess.
Another theme is that our brains have been rewiring in this intense period as our lunar and solar selves become integrated and the electromagnetic field of the earth is being charged by incredible solar flares. This has resulted in many people experiencing unusual symptoms such as eye problems, vertigo and sinusitis. The earth has seen a rapid increase in active volcanoes, earthquakes and extreme weather in the last year.
The Total Solar eclipse is also unusual in that the full eclipse will occur only over the Faroe Islands North East of Britain. However the Orkney Islands is where our group will travel to experience 96 per cent of the eclipse in the ancient Rings of Broghar and Stenness which are Solar and Lunar temples. A recent BBC documentary Sacred Wonders of Britain revealed that new archeological evidence shows the Orkney stones to be the first Neolithic sites in Britain predating Stonehenge. So evidence suggests that something very important started here around 4000 BC.
The book Uriels Machine by Christopher and Robert Lomas is a must read for those of you whose curiosity is tweaked! It is a decoding of the Book of Enoch found with the Dead Sea Scrolls and talks about the teachings Enoch received from very tall, red headed ‘Watcher Angels’ incarnated as humans about an impending comet hit at the Orkney stones and Newgrange in Ireland. These Neolithic sites were essentially used to make accurate astronomical readings for both practical (sailing navigation, crops) and spiritual purposes. The landscape of the Orkneys in light of the energies arriving with the Blood Moons and Total Solar Eclipse seems vitally important and perhaps why it was chosen by the Watchers.
Two enormous lochs are separated by a thin litmus of land and the solar temple Broghar and Lunar temple Stenness lie to each side where they connect with the land and the Atlantic ocean beyond. In the center is a large communal temple or possibly even a pyramid which has been buried until now. So this landscape is a map of the human brain and also the kidneys in its yin and yang formation. That sets my goose bumps going! What I love too is that a stone from every island of the Orkneys was brought to make the circle at incredible effort. This seems to me to be a statement of the importance of inclusiveness.
The unfolding mysteries of the Orkneys have also led me to Tenerife and La Gomera in the Canary Islands where giant red headed people known as Guanches built pyramids aligned to the solstices. La Gomera is where Columbus set off to the Americas which is perhaps how he knew just how to con the locals that he was a returning god with his red beard and tall figure.
The Orkney sacred site Maes Howe and the Guimar pyramids of Tenerife have one extraordinary thing in common, around the winter solstice each year the sun appears to set twice over specific mountains. Recently in researching Sedna who lives way out beyond Pluto astronomers theorized that an enormous, invisible body which may be a binary star to our sun is holding Sedna in her orbit. Could this be the Dark Mother, she who represents the invisible and as yet much undiscovered creative force of our universe?
Perhaps these ancient astronomers saw in these double sunsets her visible presence if only for a brief moment each year. One of our group happens to be a very tall female sailing Captain and so we shall be travelling to La Gomera and Tenerife to experience the final 2015 Blood Lunar eclipse of 28th September 2015 out in the ocean with the whales who migrate in the channel between these islands. The philanthropist Thor Heyerdhal saved these pyramids from becoming a housing estate and has set up a beautiful outdoor museum on Tenerife.
As we approach the Total Solar Eclipse between the gateway of Pisces and Aries the energies seem to have become focused on crossing the ‘rainbow bridge’ (a term first coined by Barbara Hand Clow) between our inner and outer selves. What support do we need to bring all of ourselves in our relationships, work and community? As we traverse the rocky space of the asteroid belt we integrate the Goddess asteroids and transform the Chiron/Chariklo wounds into gifts to share. Breaking through all shame and fear we arrive in the beautiful glow of our true spirit selves. We are becoming mycelium which we like to eat and grow, and get as many mushrooms around you as they are the master teachers of this quantum transition in which we are all part.
The eclipse also coincides with the final exact square of Uranus and Pluto. These outer planets were conjunct in the late 1960’s when the seed of the Aquarian vision started to grow in many freedom movements. The waxing square urges us to take control of our lives and humanity and not continue to be swept along by unconscious currents of survival fears.
