The Trine Nature of Our Changing Times

Guest article by Mona Delfino SacredReconnections

Right now we have 5 planets in retrograde. Jupiter (the planet of expansion) has been in retrograde since the beginning of the year, and has just turned direct today, May 13th. There are 4 others however that are still retrograde. These are heavy hitters, such as Saturn, Pluto, Mars and Mercury. So from April 28th through May 13th, we have truly experienced some of the hardest times individually and in our families. Many are feeling very disconnected, lost, tired, self loathing, or even not in their body. Some are experiencing many people around them dying or getting sick.  So why is this so important, and is the Universe telling us something urgent??

In my world, I read energy no matter what the situation might be. I have felt strongly and listened to the Universes interpretation of this profound message being downloaded to us. Yes, it is here with a sense of urgency.

We are definitely changing dimensions. There is absolutely no doubt that we are in the thicket of these changes. We are all being asked to expand and come into the true soul that we came here to be. There have been too many road blocks into being free and knowing our truth, and that comes from past conditioning. We have had past lives that have imploded many disenchanting beliefs about being right or wrong, or good or evil. This has promoted too much judgment on each other, but even worse, on ourselves. This is exactly what created the ego.

So as we are emerging as a unified human race, we are experiencing some of the most deepest core “realities” that make our hearts become completely challenged. We are in the underworld of existence. That is what the planets are saying in a sense. Time to completely re-evaluate our own existence.

These times are not at all meant to hurt or harm, however they are here to encourage a “new look” at the way we view life, experiences, decisions, and even challenge us to move into new directions… like it or not.

With this knowledge now, we have to ask what can help us move into this new dimension from years and lifetimes of judgment and limited conditioning? First of all, this is a process of recognition and connection. It’s not always about meditation. Now we must be cognoscente of our actions, our reactions and our non actions. The more you allow the perceptions of ease to travel through you without questioning if something is right or wrong, then the old can pass through our bodies without harming us. It’s the judgment of good or bad that made decisions in our system in the first place. Allowance isn’t easy, but it is most effective in cases of healing. We must stop judgment in order to progress on all levels.

Turning to the heart and taking 10 minutes a day to listen within can be crucial. Within the heart are the answers.

I am a HeartMath Trainer and Coach as well, and these techniques teach us that the biology of the body changes and shifts Cortisol to DHEA simply by acknowledging gratitude and compassion. It lifts us out of the foggy brain syndrome that many are experiencing during these changes. Your choices become clearer and you empower yourself when you are in that state of ease.

I am a Medicine Woman with the Nemenhah, and on the Medicine Wheel, the South is representative of “Looks Within.” We must turn the other cheek from what we were used to in life to a new direction of life. Our world awaits….

Medicine Sail for Juno 26th April 2016

Guest article by Alison from Goddessasteroids

The journey begins in Carnarvon dock Wales as we pump up the dingy in a hail storm passing over. The boat has had to be in dock over the winter as the seas here are very wild and even within the protecting walls of the harbour several pontoons had broken in high winds. I state my intention to ask for healing Medicine for Juno within the collective and feel a great sense of exuberance as we sail out of the harbour into the bay.

There are three of us on the journey and our destination is a buoy at Y Felinhelli in the Menai Straits. This is a narrow and notoriously dangerous straits falling between mainland Wales and the island of Anglesey which was the last stronghold of the Druids under Roman Invasion of Britain. There are many Neolithic cairns and standing stones on Anglesey. There are buoy markers along the way and we have to zig zag across the straits avoiding rocks and sand banks underneath the water. It is extremely tidal here and we are going against the tide which slows the passage down somewhat.

As we cross the bay following the markers for safe passage an Arctic Tern appears over the boat and a short time later its mate appears. They would have flown thousands of miles to be here, a bird of great resilience. Their pure white wings are very slender and curved and their delicate tails forked. The black patterns on the head are a striking contrast and their slender form seems perfect for the long journey’s these birds take. The Terns follow us on our zig zagging course. Sometimes they fly together on the wing and sometimes one disappears off for a while. The sun has come out now and whilst there is a cold wind it is very pleasant watching the birds and the sea. We are surrounded in the distance by the snow capped mountains of Snowdonia and the clouds are very expressive today. On the banks of Anglesey I notice 3 separate large circles of stones and within them around ten very large, old trees each. They appear to be dancing as they do not yet have leaves and their branches are interconnected and a haze of purple, burnished orange and silver in the distance. I marvel at this as I have sailed here a number of times but never seen these trees before. The stone circles form a triangle in the field surrounded by sheep peacefully grazing.

The houses that line the straits are mostly old mansions and I see the terns in the distant flying over a very beautiful and regal house. It is pale yellow in colour and looks very well kept. I can see poly tunnels and other outbuildings. There is a big fire going burning off the dead wood from the winter making way for new growth.

The terns are just circling together in front of the house over the sea when suddenly they both dive together in perfect synchronicity. They rise again circling each other and the meadow below. After a while I turn to look at the other bank of the straits to a field of sheep. As I look it appears that there are about 50 lambs running down the hill suddenly in the distance but I laugh when I realise they are actually a flock of arctic terns taking off. We are just watching them when we see a buzzard appear in the sky. I am very excited as I have been reading The Return of the Bird Tribes by Ken Carey in the car on the way here and my heart is full of spirit and hope. The appearance of the buzzard sends tingles through me and we are all standing up trying to get a better look. The friend we are with has brought binoculars and she offers them to me for a better look. It takes a minute to find the bird through the lenses peering into the blue sky with clouds forming and floating endlessly above. When I finally get the buzzard in my sights it is like seeing into another dimension with the formation of the clouds and witnessing the flight of this awesome feathered friend.

After a while the buzzard disappears and we are now on our approach to Y Felinhelli. We pick out the buoy we have been allocated from afar and I go with our friend to the front of the boat with a hook. Catching the buoy has been tricky in the past as the engine was not keen on going into neutral or reverse but now she has a new engine, more reliable and able to give more manoeuvrability. I manage to hook the rope first time but it is all tangled from its long winter in the water and the Harbour Trust have put some ties on it to make it safer. I’m glad of my friend’s help in untangling the rope covered in seaweed and slime before we can tie it on. In the past I’ve almost had my arms torn off hanging onto the buoy for dear life as the current takes the boat.

The journey back to shore in the dingy is hard rowing for the skipper. She understands the way the tides work perfectly and we end up floating into shore even with constant rowing at a ninety degree angle to the boat. I am very grateful of her knowledge and feeling for the sea (a Pisces) and how to navigate it and we safely reach the shore.

Astrology Report for May

Guest article By Dorene Carrel

May contains significant planetary transitions and patterns that will help us gain greater momentum as the month progresses.  As in late April, we begin the month on a more introspective note with five retrograde planets, which include Mercury, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn and Pluto.   On May 9 a rare Mercury transit over the Sun helps us tap into our connection with higher mind. In mid-month Mercury and Jupiter turn direct, which enhances our perspective, learning, communication, and ideals/visions. We can begin moving forward with more energy and clarity.  Also featured is an ongoing t-square pattern between Mercury, Jupiter and Saturn, which helps us to examine and rebalance our needs for expansion and consolidation.

On May 3 the Sun in Taurus forms a harmonious trine to Jupiter in Virgo, which allows us to ground our vision in practical ways.  This trend is followed by a Sun/Pluto trine on May 7 that adds more depth and focus, as well as possible helpful collaboration with others.

The New Moon occurs on May 6 at 17 Taurus.  This lunation aligns with Mercury, Venus and the asteroid Vesta, and forms a grand earth trine with Pluto and Jupiter.  This month we can gain a truer perspective on what is of real value to us, especially in terms of how we spend our time and resources.  Grand trines can provide progress, as well as tangible opportunities and rewards to those who have worked towards certain goals.

Pluto, Jupiter and Vesta help us to hold our vision, and be discerning and practical about what will bring long-term benefits.  The Sabian keynote for this degree, “A symbolical battle between ‘swords’ and ‘torches’; refusing to depend upon the past, the seeker turns warrior, fighting anew the eternal ‘Great War’,” suggests a polarization of values between the soul and the ego.

Jupiter, the planet of expansion, turns direct on May 9.  The past four-month retrograde phase has helped us to gain more perspective on our beliefs, visions and what we need to grow and evolve.  Now we can begin making choices on how to move forward with our new awareness.  The rare Mercury/Sun transit today at 19 Taurus provides us with a closer connection to a higher intelligence that may bring important insights. On May 10, the Venus/Jupiter trine can bring optimism, renewal, and prosperity.  This would be a good time to plan an enjoyable social event or buy a lottery ticket.

On May 12-13, Mercury aligns with Venus in Taurus and both trine Pluto in Capricorn.  This period enhances the new moon theme of practical focus on values and how we can best use our resources.  Does our daily schedule reflect these values and how can we bring it into a better alignment with our true goals?  The Pluto trine can bring opportunities to take a deeper approach, after Mercury turns direct.

The Full Moon occurs on May 21 at 1 Sagittarius.  It aligns with Mars, Vesta and Venus.  This combination encourages us to evaluate new information with a broad and nonjudgmental perspective.  The focus will be on balancing our needs for both freedom and security. Mars is closest to the Earth this year on May 22, when it opposes the Sun, giving us an extra boost of energy.   There may also be more protests in the news at this time. The Sabian symbol keynotes for these degree areas, “A rewarded faith in spiritual blessings,” and “The mobilization of unconscious energies under the pressure of superpersonal motives,” suggests the personal growth that comes from persevering with our spiritual practices.

Mercury turns direct on May 22 at 14 Taurus.  It is in a close quincunx aspect to Saturn, which suggests that any ideas that are too fixed may require an adjustment to be workable.  Mercury is still in a grand earth trine with Jupiter and Pluto, which will help us to expand our thinking and attract opportunities to enhance our progress.

On May 26, the third and last square occurs between Jupiter in Virgo and Saturn in Sagittarius.  The other square aspects occurred last August and this past March 23.

During April and May there has been an ongoing t-square pattern between Jupiter, Saturn and Neptune that has its closest aspects this month.  Our urges for expansion can best be met with cautious discernment and a goal-oriented approach. We can now achieve new clarity about a situation that was begun last August. New insights could lead to a restructuring or reorganization, which in turn can draw in new people and resources.

On May 27 Mars returns to Scorpio until August 3, providing more time for us to clear out old emotional patterns holding us back from our greater growth.  New momentum and energy is released when Mars begins moving forward again on June 30.

On May 30 Mercury forms another trine with Pluto, which allows us to make progress with a situation/project that may have begun around May 12.  Our thinking goes deeper now and we may be able to attract more resources.

In June Mars turns direct.  Blessings for a peaceful Spring.

Planet Alert May 2016

Welcome to the beautiful month of May, I just love this month. My rhododendrons are in full bloom and they are gorgeous. I have light pink ones, two bright pink ones, a white one, and two bright red ones. I also have two purple ones that are not in full bloom yet. They make my yard look very beautiful. No wonder Mother’s Day is always celebrated in the month of May when so many flowers are in bloom.

Mother Earth is in a birthing process right now. A friend of mine named Mona Delfino channeled for me last week and what she said is very beautiful. She said that Mother Earth is in a rebirth process right now from the core of her Being and the core is in the process of polarizing itself to become aligned with the Universe in a different way.

The core (heart) of the Earth is lighting up from the inside out and she is using her electromagnetic field to become more empowered. Isn’t that beautiful? I felt this wonderful heart energy on Sunday April 24th. It was like I had moved into heaven and wished it would stay that way all the time. We are all connected to Mother Earth and this means we are also starting to light up from the inside out. People have been afraid of the magnetic field going away. The Earth does not need to be so protected anymore because she needs the light of the sun to feed her core. We also need the light of the sun to feed our core. On April 13 a sun spot appeared that was in the shape of a heart. Check out and look at April 13.

The Universal knowledge is becoming more empowered within the core of the Earth. The inside of the Earth is going to shine on people and they will also become enlightened. They will then start to act differently and this will usher in the thousand years of peace. We are in a tremendous period of transformation right now. The change in the core is affecting all of us for the better. Don’t worry about the chemtrails anymore. The light from the Earth shining on them will neutralize them and they will become harmless. We will become more enlightened and empowered and will say no more to what has been happening on Earth. It’s like Easter! The Earth has risen and now resonates with the sun in a different way. Who ever thought that the New Earth would be born in this way?

I had received an email saying the Earth’s magnetic field went to zero on April 23rd and stayed that way for two hours. Then I received an email saying that NASA said this was not true and that it never happened so I did a chart for the night of the channeling and the chart proved to me that something was going on with our magnetic field. The moon was exactly sextile Jupiter on 13 degrees Virgo, which was in opposition to Neptune, the female Goddess.  Neptune rules the magnetic field and is known for her feminine attributes. This means that our magnetic field was being affected at that time.

I have heard many people say Neptune is male. To me this is not true because Neptune is magnetic which is female energy. Anyone who saw the movie Frozen, which was all about the fall and rebirth of Neptune, could feel the feminine energy in that movie. In Astrology Neptune is considered the higher feminine Goddess and Venus is the Earth goddess. Neptune rules Pisces, which is a feminine water sign, and is the last sign in the zodiac. Neptune rules drugs and we have definitely experienced drug abuse. This will eventually change to experiencing many new inventions which is the energy of the Age of Aquarius. We are now in this new age.

Uranus is considered the higher vibration of Mercury, which is the male aspect. Neptune is magnetic and Uranus is electrical. Males are electrical and females are magnetic. Of course they both have electric and magnetic energy in them but females are predominantly magnetic and males predominant electrical. That is why we need each other to bring in the balance.

There was so much going on the whole month of April that people are starting to wake up because they can start to see that everything is changing. There has been the Panama Papers, the secret meetings of the Federal Reserve Board, and problems with Russia and China. The new banking system of China, which is now online, looks like it will become the new World banking system. The New World bank is in China. Then we have the presidential elections in the USA. Watching the candidates run each other down has been hard for me to watch. Is that the energy we want for a new leader?

On the physical level look at all the large quakes that have happened recently, the one in Ecuador, the two large ones in Japan, and several other quakes around the world. One day last month there were three large volcanoes that erupted on the same day. Then there have been all of the storms that are causing so much havoc. We only hear about a few of them because the regular news no longer reports them. If you want information about them you have to look on the Internet. These changes will continue.

I received an email lately that says the recently discovered planet called Planet 9 has been the trigger behind the scene that is causing some of this havoc. The reason is that Planet 9’s ring node has locked on to our magnetic core because we are close enough in our orbit for the ring nodes to intersect. When this occurs, there is a tug of war which results in tectonic movement and volcanic eruptions.

Planet 9 has a higher purpose. That purpose is to be a catalyst for change. There is no coincidence that this planet was named Planet 9 which symbolizes endings and new beginnings. Planet 9 being several times the size of Earth has a strong enough magnetic field to shake our magnetic grid, and when the grid is shaken it emotionally shakes up the people. Planet 9 is part of the Nibiru system and its frequency is higher than our own. Her energy is bathing us in higher frequency waves, and thus drawing out our deep seated negative feelings. For more information check out

Like a ship in the ocean takes on water (emotion) and when the ship takes on too much water, it sinks. This is the same as negative energy, if we take on too much negativity we will drown in our own thoughts. It’s time to let it all go. Surrender to your higher self. Bathe in the energy of the core of Earth lighting up. Fill yourself up with that light, and then pass that light on to others. If you are still living in survival mode with little money to live on, pop the cork and get into the flow of The River of Abundance. Live in the energy of Love, Then Magic and Miracles will occur. We are in the process of manifesting the New World.       So Be It!

Ceres Medicine Walk

Guest article by AstroAlison @

ceresThis Medicine Walk took place on the 14th April 2016 and it wasn’t planned but Ceres had just moved into Aries, thus beginning a whole new cycle of the Zodiac. This suggests the Medicine nature has offered in this walk will be seeded in the next 50 year cycle of Ceres as she orbits the Sun. My intention as I set off is to ask nature for healing medicine for the collective for our Ceres within. I am a Shaman in the Tradition of the Four Shields and as the reader you may take parts or all of the story as Medicine for your own Inner Ceres

I begin my walk in the small town of Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire. I am drawn to walk up a muddy gunnel with dry stone walls each side to the village of Heptonstall 500 metres above. As I enter the gunnel with my two dogs Bongo and Lily it feels very much like a narrow birthing channel.

A little way up I see to my right a well. I am excited but see that it is dry and overgrown with weeds. The story of the beginning of the Holy Grail stories comes to my mind. It is said that at one time there was a Virgin in every well and spring who gave food and drink freely to travellers. However one of the Virgin’s was raped by a king and he told his men to do this across the land. The Virgin’s withdrew into the inner earth for safety and the Knights of the Round Table formed to restore the Sovereignty of the Goddess. This is mirrored in the myth of Ceres where she brings famine on the land because of her grief at the abduction and rape of her daughter Persephone.

A little way up I see on my left a grouping of trees. A large Oak stands in the centre with two Holly and two Beech each side. The perfect spacing between them is pleasing and they seem as a family. I continue up the steep track and pass through a strange curving in the pass like the neck of the cervix and far below me is a school with small children playing. A girl is pulling a boy around in a cart. Just beyond the path I come to two beautiful houses called Spring Villa with well tendered gardens now blooming with daffodils and tulips. A waterfall flows from the hillside sparkling bright and clean in the sunlight and falls into a spring below. It is on private land so it is protected.

I reach a three way cross road. I am tired and part of me would like to veer off back to civilisation down below. I’m feeling a little fearful being on the steep path all alone. But I decide to follow the middle path which leads through a Beech Wood. Far below me now on my left is a bog of stagnant water. It is quite desolate as the Beech (Druid Tree of Death) poisons the land and nothing is growing underneath. I also notice I am now on an old Pack Horse Trail too which is where material and goods would have been carried along the valley by horse at the time of the Industrial Revolution. I remember the ancestors who have walked this land before me. There is plenty of rotting leaves and Beech nuts on the trail of stone.

I reach another three way stop and again am tempted to head back through tiredness but the wood is changing just up ahead to Birch (Tree of Rebirth) and it looks very magical so I choose to walk up a steep way right through the trees on stone steps. Up above me is a huge cragg and the change of energy is palpable from the quite heavy energy of the Beech forest to the Birch. I am at the level of the branches with birds singing all around. Just under the cragg I sit to rest and I am invisible and very happy in the trees. Some heather and baby birch trees right next to me hide my presence and the silvery glow of the forest feels very magical. I notice on the next step down a little black slug is sliding over the lip of the stone below and I chuckle to myself how hard it must have been for her to get up here. I rest for a while in this beautiful place but eventually the dogs get restless so I head for home.

I follow the steep route back down the way I have come noticing once more all the interesting things on this journey and thanking Mother nature for offering this medicine for our Inner Ceres and the reintegration of the Divine Mother

New Moon Liberation

galacticcentresymbolThe New Moon on the 7th April is conjunct Uranus the planet of liberation and Venus  and is forming a Grand Trine of beneficial energies to Astraea Goddess of Sacred Arts in Leo and Saturn in Sagittarius. Many of us are now in contact, even if briefly, with our incredible Creative Genius as human beings  and last week I had a powerful vision that we are becoming as People Dream walking through a Forest. When we are in a forest or any other part of nature we lose our self consciousness and start to relax deeply. I was recently told that all plants are resonating at the all important 528 HZ frequency, one of the Solfeggio notes used for the replication of DNA.

In this state we are very open and spontaneous and this is how we will be all the time in the future once we have completed this enormous transition we are in. We are creating the pathways for the future generations of children who will just be this and not have the struggle we have had.

It is important in these times of chaos that we be present in nature and connect to the deep silence beyond the noise. When we do this our DNA starts to emit frequencies of light and as we relax and create space to be our ‘Creative Genius’ pops out the box. Astraea is a very important Goddess Asteroid transmitting this energy at this time to open space and time for creativity of every sort.

The Creative Genius should not be confused with Individualism. The Creative Genius knows itself to be just one Bee in the Hive of Humanity responding to the frequencies emitted by the Earth and Cosmos. In this complete knowing it is impossible to feel either inferior or superior to others or to behave in ways that are detrimental to the whole. Also we also wont stop ourselves doing what we love from a place of fear any longer. We feel less inclined to disobey the natural laws which govern the wellbeing of the planet.

Individualism in Western Culture has taught us to compete, to be productive all the time, to measure our success by our status and money. These are the prevailing cultural ideas we can potentially become liberated from in this Moon cycle as we come closer and closer to the Goddess energies.

This weekend we had a wonderful community building workshop in Hebden Bridge, Yorkshire, UK bringing together many different strands of transformations in consciousness including the Gene Keys and Human Design, The Mayan Dreamspell calendar, Goddess Asteroids and Chiron’s role in these transformations, shamanism with the Plant and Animal kingdoms and finally we finished by doing a Native American Indian council. We are very lucky in this community to have a teacher Sue StarJaguar who has trained in the ‘Delicate Lodge’ teachings in the USA. Part of these teaching are about Native Council where a man and woman bring to the Council their contemplations of a question or problem from each of the 8 directions. In this system it is not possible for one individual or the more alpha people to do whatever they feel like with no thought for the consequences for future generations, animals and the Earth.

he Talking Stick also ensures each person has equal space to speak. The Council of men and woman are chosen by the grandmothers who have a unique perspective which is highly honoured in the system. The Grandmothers know the people who are able to put the needs of others and the whole society before their own. It is very weird in our system that the people who seem barely able to do that and are blatantly self serving and destructive always end up being the leaders. As the Star People we are here to bring new systems which are actually very old systems back and we can begin where we are. Keeping ourselves centred and grounded we become the Creative Genius’s who will bring the new world, the new energies into form. I awake this Monday morning feeling very inspired about the future and very excited about the work I am doing this year which is expressed below. Blessing and Thank you for reading my blog, please share with your friends if you enjoyed it. Please contact me for further information if the workshops or retreats appeal to you. I do one to one chart readings too and can be contacted

On the Friday 15th April 10am-12 I start a new 6 week course looking at where theGoddess Asteroids are in your birth chart, what they are doing now and pranic meditations to connect deeply with their energies. Cornholme, Lancashire Cost £60

Sat 7th May 2016 is my first Astrology and Nutrition workshop with Nutritionist Julie Silver. Ceres in Pisces is bringing much greater sensitivity to the food chain and especially animals and how they are treated. Ceres in the birth chart shows issues to do with nurturing which are really the foundation of good health. Food itself can greatly help to accelerate our cosmic evolution. £57 in Prestwich.

Sat 21st May 2016 is the next workshop A Shamanic Journey with Horses following working 2 years with a herd of incredible horses. It is always so heart warming to me that there are great animal beings here to help us at this time. One day I was painting Laddie the leader of the herd who is a Gypsy Cob. I felt drawn from his markings and my intuition to paint a jewelled saddle on him with rubies and emeralds. When Amanda the Equine Facilitator who works with the horses came back she told me Laddie has asked her in a Shamanic Drum journey the week before for jewels. The Horses do chakra healing and of course are very loving and good reflectors of what’s really going on deep down. has more info. In Sowerby Bridge, West Yorkshire Cost £85 (No riding is involved)

Saturday 19th June Axiatonal Light Grid Attunement through Light and Sound healing. This workshop came about when both myself and Shanaz who is a Kinesiologist had a dream the night before we met up. In mine she was constructing a new light grid in my energy body and in hers she dreamt of the Umin and Thummin stones. Our research on these ancient stones led us to The Book of Enoch and a big download about Axiatonal Lines. The attunement includes a Sound Gong Bath with the Neptune Gong to infuse your newly opened grid lines with cosmic song. Cost £50 in Hebden Bridge.

A Shamanic Journey with Frey the Buzzard and Morgan the African Owl near Hebden Bridge at The Autumn Equinox where we ‘let go’. This is going to be a life changing experience having close contact with these birds dedicated to our healing. Silvia Mutterlee is writing a Masters Degree on animal healing and specifically Birds of Prey and she is also a powerful Shaman Woman. Astrologically we will be looking at Pluto and the Kuiper Belt Goddesses Sedna and Eris and making our own smudge sticks from the birds moulted feathers to take away. This 2 day retreat has the possibility of healing deep trauma. 23 to 25th September 2016, cost to be announced but let me know if you are interested.

Sunday October 2nd and 30th ‘Music of the Spheres’ is the next collaboration with myself and Dr Jen Altman in our weaving of astrology and quantum physics back together. Feedback from our last courses showed a great interest in Sound Healing. There will be amazing meditations to light up your DNA, Sound Gong baths each day and the science presented in an experiential way by Jen which makes it easy to understand. In Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire.

Mayan Dreamspell Mandala Retreat in October in Wales. I am almost as effervescent as champagne about this retreat with my Star Sisters Shanaz  (Creative Kinesiology, Human Design)and M (Astrologer and Mandala artist). Each participant will create a Mandala painting of their Mayan Dreamspell birth chart understanding each of its elements deeply and in relation to Human Design revealing your cosmic nature and purpose. There will be three Gong Baths by me to the Hunab Ku (Galactic Centre), The Sun and The Crystalline Earth Centre. This retreat will bring you into powerful alignment with your soul purpose through creating the mandala. More details to follow soon on price and dates.

Astrology Report for April

By Dorene Carrel

April is a fairly active month, highlighted by Mars, Pluto and Mercury all turning retrograde. Along with Jupiter and Saturn, there are now five retrograde planets.  This retrograde emphasis over the next few months favors a more inward focus, with emphasis on reviewing and revising plans and goals. This is also a good time to get more in touch with your intuition and dreams. In mid-month, a grand earth trine between Mercury, Pluto and Jupiter allows us to aim higher and deeper, taking a more grounded and authentic approach.  Towards the end of the month, Saturn, Jupiter and Mercury form a mutable t-square, which shows us how to integrate our visions and ideals into practical forms.

The New Moon occurs on April 7 at 18 Aries.  Along with the spring equinox, this is another significant time for new beginnings.  This lunation is conjunct Uranus and square to Pluto, which accelerates the occurrence of radical changes, breakdowns and breakthroughs.  It is also a Super Moon, which adds extra power and potency. The harmonious trine to Saturn helps us to integrate these changes so we can apply them to our daily lives in beneficial ways.  The first two weeks of this month are the best for taking action, before we move into the retrograde cycles.  The Sabian symbol for this degree, “The ‘magic carpet’ of oriental imagery; the use of creative imagination,” suggests the value of creative visualization to manifest our highest visions.

April 14-17 features a grand earth trine between Mercury in Taurus, Jupiter in Virgo and Pluto in Capricorn.   Mercury/Jupiter expands our perspective, while Mercury/Pluto brings more depth to our insights and communications.  This period is favorable for formulating a practical, sustainable plan for achieving our goals. An ongoing project or goal can bring tangible rewards at this time.  The Mercury retrograde shadow period begins on April 15, which signals us to begin taking a more patient, cautious and long-term approach, and to put off major decisions until late May.

A dynamic period begins on April 17 when Mars turns retrograde at 9 Sagittarius and the next day Pluto turns retrograde at 17 Capricorn. Mars, which turns retrograde only once every two years, turns direct on June 29.  During this period, there is an emphasis on reviewing important beliefs and goals.  Are we really walking our talk, or just pretending or procrastinating?  It is time to commit to living our visions in a more authentic way and be open to a change of priorities. Pluto travels through mid-Capricorn over the next five months,  allowing us to examine power and control issues in greater depth.  These stations may trigger volatility and powerful changes, perhaps due to new revelations on the world stage.

On April 21 the Full Moon occurs at 2 Scorpio 31.  This water sign favors taking a deeper approach to exploring our feelings, use of personal power, our fears and deeper motivations.  How can we best cooperate with others to achieve common goals? As this lunation is aligned with the asteroid Juno, we can also examine our deeper needs in close relationships.  Venus aligns with Uranus the next day,  providing more detachment and need for independence.  The Sabian symbols for these degrees, “Natural steps lead to a lawn of clover in bloom,” and “A house-raising party in a small village enlists the neighbors’ cooperation,” seem to echo the theme of working with like-minded others to achieve higher personal and spiritual goals.

A mutable t-square between Neptune, Jupiter and Saturn/Mars occurs later this month and through mid-May.  This pattern helps facilitate the process of examining our beliefs to see if they really fit and work for us as we move into new and higher levels of awareness. As world and personal changes occur faster now, it signals us to be more open to change and to see alternatives. With the Gemini empty leg, we will gain more by being open-minded, curious and less critical.

Mercury turns retrograde at 23 Taurus 35 on April 28, traveling backward until it reaches 14 Taurus 22 on May 23. During this period, it is favorable to focus on self-care and self-nurturing through simple pleasures (massage, good food, walks in nature, etc.).  It is important to slow down, do less to accomplish more, and avoid making major decisions until after May 23.

May features a stationary direct Jupiter and Mercury.  Blessings for a prosperous Spring!

Planet Alert April 2016


March was one of the most intense months I have experienced in a long time. There were two eclipses, the Spring Equinox, two comets, and Easter. This equinox changed everything as far as I am concerned because it was the end of the war on the astral plane and that is a big deal. I experienced this final war on the dream plane and that is how I know it is over. This war has gone on for eons of time and it has finally come to an end.

This means that we definitely jumped out of 4D and now we need to anchor ourselves firmly in 5D. The final battle is now occurring on Earth. Everything happens on the Astral first and then it happens on Earth. It was shortly after the Spring Equinox that Brussels was attacked by terrorists. Incidentally, the March 23rd full moon was on 3 degrees Libra. This means that the moon was exactly over Brussels at the time the attack happened.

My compassion goes out to all those people who have gone through so much suffering. The chaos on Earth will get stronger as we move through the summer unless our loving thoughts change that energy. This chaotic energy will climax in either September or October 2016. Just a couple of days ago there was another attack in Pakistan. (Mars was over Pakistan at that time).

The battle that has waged for so long has been between two factors for control of the Earth. The dark ones just lost their control from the astral plane which is part of 4D. That density is where the good, the bad, and the ugly all exist. The light has now won on that density and it is now time for victory on the Earth plane. Many of us have gone back and forth between those two densities for a long time. Now it is time to stay in 5D energy.

The Bible talks about the fierce fighting God called Jehovah in the Old Testament. That is one side of the force and the other is represented by the feminine energy of love which is represented by the people who are part of the Emerald Covenant. Two emerald comets passed by Earth on March 21 – 22. This was a message to the people who belong to the Emerald Covenant that the war is over on the astral plane. The light has won and now it is time for light to rule on earth.

In the time of Jesus (Joshua) and Mary Magdalene there was a group of people called The Sisterhood of the Emerald Fire. The word Mary means healer and Magdalene means a whole group of people. A lot of people who now live on Earth are very familiar with this group. They are the great healers of our time. If you resonate with this information you were part of that group. This group actually started at the time of Hermes (Thoth) who wrote The Emerald Tablets thousands of years ago. Two emerald green comets just activated heart chakra energy. The heart chakra is emerald green on the outside and the inside is a beautiful bright pink. It is definitely time to ‘Think with your Heart ‘and it’s time to manifest this love on Earth.

The Sisterhood of the Emerald Fire used living oils to anoint themselves and to breathe in the smell of the oils The Bible talks about how the three wise men came to visit Jesus (Joshua) with Gold, Frankincense, and Myrrh. It also talks about how Mary anointed Jesus with expensive oils. They also did a technique of smelling the oils which activated their pineal gland and the amygdala in the brain. Those parts of the brain control our emotions. The amygdala coordinates the autonomic and endocrine systems. By breathing in the smell of oils you also activate your limbic system in the brain.

It appears there is a deep connection between amygdala and Magdala and resurrection. The amygdala looks like an almond on each side of the head close to the ears. It is said that if your amygdalas are facing backwards it brings negativity into your life. If you click them forward it brings happiness into your life. Here is a link that tells you how to activate your Amygdala

I know for a fact that by smelling the oils it heals your limbic system. I was chemically poisoned in the early seventies and after that I became sensitive to all chemical smells like perfume, etc. A friend of mine was giving me a massage several years ago when she had me smell the oils. Almost any kind of smell would knock me out and I would feel like passing out, and it would turn off my brain. The oils did not affect me that way so I started to smell them. Then I read the book called Change your brain, change your life by Daniel G. Amen, M.D. What a godsend that book was for me. Now smells hardly bother me anymore.

The knowledge of smell activating the higher consciousness is a way of developing the soul. The olfactory bulbs in the nose stimulate the amygdala gland through smell and this activates the frontal lobes of the brain, transcending space, time, energy and matter, through consciousness.

Then there is another conspiracy theory about water. Do you know why they put fluoride in our water? One of the reasons was to calcify our pineal gland. Our pineal gland is our connection with source and when the gland is healthy it emits light. Did you also know that distilled water decalcifies your pineal gland? There are two types of minerals in our water. One is organic and the other in inorganic. The inorganic minerals in our body harden our arteries and get caught in our bodies and cause all kinds of problems.

Regular or filtered water has both kinds of minerals in it. Distilled water is just plain water with no minerals in it. Then when you eat lots of fruits and vegetable you get lots of good minerals for your body. Here is a two hour video that talks about the benefits of distilled water. The first half hour talks about urine therapy and what he says about that is interesting. Here is the link to that video. The Fountain Of Youth Has Been Found – Vinny Eastwood & Andrew Norton Weber.

Now what are the planets doing this month. Many people will awaken in April because of some of the events that will happen this month. Aries is ruled by the planet Mars. Uranus is in the sign of Aries right now. This means that we will have an interaction between Mars and Uranus all month. Then on the new moon of April 7th the sun and moon will be conjunct Uranus in a square aspect to Pluto.

Mars rules anger, violence, fires, and with Uranus it rules explosions and revolutionary action. Uranus rules wind and right now we have a huge wind storm moving across the United States causing much damage. Pluto rules transformation and that energy has taken down lots of structures lately, including governments. This new moon will trigger lots of action. It will be an exciting month if we stay in observer mode. The areas ruled by Aries and Libra are Alaska, where there is a volcanic eruptions going on right now, and the other area is Europe, including the Vatican.

Walk gently on this beautiful planet because we are the ones we have been waiting for. We are God’s perfect child. If you would like to release anger and negative energy from your mind, body, and environment, just say the ho’oponopono, which is a prayer from Hawaii.
