# 1 – Yea! First Mercury went direct, now Mars. A look at the current astrological happenings by Chris Flisher

Week of April 9: Venus, Neptune Square Off; Beware of Illusions

After months of retrograde motion, Mars, the planet of ambition and aggression stations direct late in the week and begins to head forward in Virgo. Details and earthly measures are likely to begin to gel and clarify and a significant weight may be lifted as momentum gathers. If your plans have been stalled, expect them to lift off as traction becomes a reality. Dreams may fly as Venus and Neptune square off in what could be an elusive encounter that clouds the picture. How do we gain clarity if the fog wanders in? The frustration of moving forward could be offset by an illusion of potential. Pause and reflect before acting in haste.

# 5 – And a little Abraham “to grow on”…

“You don’t have to work at being in the high vibration that is natural to you, because it is natural to you. But you do have to stop holding the thoughts that cause you to lower your vibration. It’s a matter of no longer giving your attention to things that don’t allow your cork to float or don’t allow you to vibrate in harmony with who you really are.”— Abraham

Vibes Up gets a thumbs up, letting go of resistance, Healing With the Masters, sustainable living event, Abraham and more


PICK OF THE DAY:

You know excited you get when you come across something new that just totally rocks your world? That’s how I felt about discovering Kaitlyn Keyt and her Vibes Up site and products. I have listened to her on several interviews and loved her take on things and how she explained EMFs and other positive ion generating sources in a way that took away the sense of them being scary and negative. And she has created a wealth of award-winning items geared toward balancing out the over abundance of positive ions in our daily lives. Plus, she believes so strongly in her products and the cutting-edge technology they implement that you can get one of her balancing/harmonizing bracelets for FREE (just cover postage).

I have already ordered a number of things from her site (water bottle, balancing coasters, toothpaste, shampoo, squishy pads—LOVE the squishy pads :-),— etc.) and plan to buy more in the near future. You really owe it to yourself, those around you, and the planet to start using some of her easy and fun ways to balance and harmonize your body and the environment! Start exploring now.

5/30/12 I just noticed that they no longer mention the free bracelet on the home page of the store (it used to be at the end of the list of items/products in the left-hand column). So I checked with Kaitlyn and she says if you mention the free bracelet and which theme you want (health & wellness, abundance, etc.) in the comment/instructions box when you are ordering, then they will add it in. :-)

 

TIPS FOR TODAY:

# 1 – An insightful article by Guy Finley on how resistance keeps our painful thoughts and feelings going…

Key Lesson: Resistance always bites the hand that feeds it.

Just as a storm in the atmosphere of the earth is born of conflicting fronts of different temperatures colliding with one another, so too must there be conflicting forces within us in order to form a mental or emotional storm. Our task is to become conscious of these unseen forces that dwell in the unenlightened parts of us. As we grow to realize that no disturbance can remain within us without our granting it the force it needs to sustain its fury, we realize that we have at our disposal two great powers. We are empowered to dismiss storms when they appear in our psychic system and, with time and practice, we can learn to dismiss these disturbances before they begin!

The storms in our lives all share a common cause. Each storm, large or small, centers around something that happens to us that we don’t want to be happening for whatever reasons…

Imagine a woman caught in an emotional firestorm of anger because she does not wanted to be treated like that.Or a man who feels trapped by a tormenting depression because he doesn’t want what life continues to bring to him. Can we see that these two storms share a common root? Both rise as they do because of our unconscious resistance to something that has already happened.

Whenever we face an unwanted event and find ourselves feeling nothing but resistance, we can discover that this stress-mess is made from our insistence that this should not have happened. And how about when we recall past mistakes, painfully reliving how we fell down — either a moment ago or ten years back? Aren’t we sure that whatever that error may have been — it shouldn’t have taken place?

The storms we suffer are not born simply from any particular event that takes place, but rather they rise from an unknown ground in us due to our undetected resistance to them. Further, these unwanted events that we so strongly resist are not the actual events themselves. What we secretly struggle against in these moments are unwanted images of that event fashioned by ourselves. This occurs, for example, when we imagine a fearful future, or see ourselves thrown for a social loss of some sort. In these moments we suffer, as we do, because we are looking at what we don’t want to see. And then, because we don’t know that we have been tricked into giving these negative fantasies our attention, we try to imagine ways to escape their punishing presence. The more we struggle to get away, the more attention we inadvertently lend to what we wish would disappear! It’s a great paradox: not wanting to look upon what is bothering us keeps what is bothering us in plain view! But now we are beginning to see our way out of this trap.

From this moment forward, whenever some dark storm appears in us, we must neither run from it, nor stand there and hate what we think is happening. Instead we must awaken to ourselves, bring ourselves back into the Now and quietly, deliberately, drop any image that our thought-nature presents within us to justify the brewing conflict. Learning to dismiss the storms that sink our chances to be happy takes dedicated inner work, but you may be assured such powers are possible. Your True Nature already dwells beyond the reach of self-wrecking storms. Join it; begin Now!

“Many tell us that they are so busy making their money that they do not have time to enjoy it . . . for when you rely on your action to create, often you are too tired to enjoy your creation. Once you not only understand the power of your thought, but you deliberately direct this powerful tool in the direction of things that you desire, then you will discover that the action part of your life is the way you enjoy what you have created through your thought.”— Abraham

# 5 – And an astrological update from Chris Flisher…

An Intellectual Revolution

The most important alignment for the month of March will be the co-joining of Mercury, Uranus and the Sun all in the early degrees of restless, spring-bound Aries. As Mercury stations and heads towards retrograde motion on March 12 we can expect all sorts of sparky, impulsive discussions surrounding key intellectual subjects. This is the fuel of revolution as Uranus the great rebel occupies a higher frequency than Mercury and elevates the common discussion to one of historical importance. To complicate the matter these planets will be in a square (90 degree) alignment to mighty Pluto in Capricorn. The confusion, revelation, and realization of what is occurring will be unavoidable  Much will need to be sorted as opinions vary and progress seems locked in quicksand. These are the times that try men’s souls, as the phrase goes. Why?

Uranus symbolizes the sporadic, cerebral quality of thought and change, while Mercury is the very embodiment of communication. Together they forge a unique conversation that may seem agitated and regressive. Mercury retrograde tends to send progress backwards as we stop and reconsider. In fact, any word with the prefix “re” works for this transit – re-view, re-consider, re-visit and so on. How does this unfold on the world’s stage? Looking at this dynamic combination in the United States it is actually quite easy to see the dialog regress as the topic of birth control, abortion, women’s right s and other “ancient” topics come back to the public discourse. This is not a political commentary, but rather a simple social observation. There is no judgment here; just watching the wheels go round and round.

Why, when we are immersed in a global economic quagmire, would politicians be speaking of long-resolved issues? Why do these topics appear again? Haven’t we been down this road years ago? Didn’t we solve the problem of contraception ages ago? Wasn’t that the 1960s? Why is this topic back on the headlines today? There is no historical value for these issues at this point in time. Been there; done that. The universe is not regressive, so this is a pathway that will surely work against progress.

This is a reactionary (Uranus) distraction of the highest order. By bringing this topic to the table AGAIN, the conversation shifts from the real issues. Because this topic is so emotional, it harbors deep fears/views/emotions in people and strikes at the very core of an age old problem that should never enter the conversation. This distraction will force us to come to divisive lines of opinion that will not unify but rather separate our collective consciousness. In an effort to display contrast, this conversation brings up a point that will surely draw a line between parties. Again, this is an observation and does not represent any political opinion on my part. “Just the facts m’am;” so to speak.

The distractibility of this type of tense angle will indeed force the issue of a resolution. Resolution may come at the cost of progress as unnecessary media cycles churn away at explosive and inflammatory issues when all we really need to do is start working and get our jobs done. There is nothing easy, but simple problem resolution is required. As we see moderate politicians leave the arena we know we are in trouble. History (not opinion) has repeatedly shown that the way forward is straight down the middle. The middle way is the spot where true compromise comes to the fore and diplomacy rules, leaving both sides feeling as if they gained. The byproduct of this gain is in fact a step forward for the person in the street.

How do we resolve this and elevate the dialog to one that serves us better? We speak out and we act with goodness and optimism. Gently we move the dialog back to the points that we need to address. Pluto in Capricorn will drive significant foundational changes that will be triggered by reactionary Uranus and fueled by Mercury in retrograde motion for the large part of the month. Later in April the fog will clear and the past will look much different as will the future.

Week of March 5th

This week presents a time of intellectual spark as Mercury and Uranus join forces and forge a dynamic energy pattern that sends conversations into the unknown. We can expect sudden shifts in our thought process and brilliant flashes of insight and innovation. As both of these planets will be drifting through Aries we can expect some rather impulsive exchanges of words, ideas and discoveries. Aries tends to drive and initiate, so expect bold departures and unheard of proposals. There should be a tangible excitement that accompanies this type of energy so tap into it and ride the charge.

# 1 – An astrological update on the current moon phase from Astrograph.com

LAST QUARTER MOON

The coming Last Quarter Moon, taking place on Tuesday, February 14th, Valentine’s Day, brings an interesting slant to this romantic holiday. This is because Venus, planet of relationship, is square to Pluto on this day, bringing up the dark side of relationships and of our human motivation in general. This lunar phase is traditionally in any case is a time for deep reflection, a time when we will search our souls for a better take on the meaning of recent events and for what is truly going on with our lives. This of course applies to the more obvious and surface meaning of events, with plenty to look at even in this regard. But then there is the underlying meaning – and several different aspects of that meaning – and it is this deeper level that might in the early days of this week become more readily available to consciousness and reflection.

We are accustomed to the importance of dream life and inner imagination, and what clues these complex messages from the subconscious can provide us for better understanding ourselves. And it is helpful to note that so-called real life can also be interpreted in much the same way, at a symbolic level; providing thereby necessary clues to understanding. Our deepest desires are seldom really known to us without extensive examination, and this time period therefore provides us with some necessary fuel for that journey of exploration. This needn’t be so dire but it might be that issues do arise for us to look at more closely within the area of relationship: issues such as possessiveness, jealousy, or the fierce currents of desire represented by compulsion and obsession.

If untoward events associated with the important relationships of our lives do transpire it will be for the useful purpose of bringing to greater consciousness some of the deeper areas of our psyche. This is especially true with the coming week’s events since Mercury crosses into nebulous Pisces on Monday, the day before the Quarter Moon, there to conjunct Neptune and to begin to conjunct Chiron, reaching it by Thursday. Therefore from Tuesday onward a process is initiated revealing to our conscious minds the places within us where we might exhibit behavior patterns resulting from earlier wounding, perhaps going as far back the parenting we received in early childhood. And these patterns can color our relationship experiences in the present moment.

The prescription for this time period then is to watch and wait; to let our unconscious process reveal itself to us without judgment and with as little drama as we can manage. Taking the largest possible picture into account we can begin to see where the value is, in providing the necessary raw material for advancing our progress. We go notch by notch and step by step, spiraling upwards around the mountain of our inner soul-assignment in movement toward the spiritual destiny that we secretly crave.

# 2 – It’s been almost a year since the nuclear radiation disaster in Japan happened. You don’t really hear anything in the news about it these days, but that doesn’t mean the situation has gone away….

http://www.naturalnews.com/034948_Fukushima_radiation_arctic_mammals.html

# 3 – And speaking of radiation, here’s an interesting article from the Natural News newsletter by Cheryl McCoy of AboutClay.com about uses for bentonite clay in dealing with radiation….

There has been a lot of press lately about radiation from the Fukushima disaster being found in our food supply. Many people around the world are being told to avoid drinking milk and eating vegetables due to the contamination. Even though our government is downplaying how widespread this contamination is and the health risks this could create, we should all be taking precautions to protect ourselves. No one wants to be exposed to any avoidable radiation. Calcium Bentonite Clay has been proven to adsorb and remove radiation. Washing your produce in a solution of Calcium Bentonite Clay and water will remove radiation, as well as pesticides and other toxins.

How does Calcium Bentonite Work?

Calcium Bentonite Clay has a uniquely strong negative ionic charge. When activated with water it works like a strong magnet, adsorbing and absorbing anything with a positive ionic charge (i.e., toxins, pesticides, radiation). The clay captures these substances and removes them as the clay is eliminated or washed off.

To remove radiation from your produce, Perry A~ Arledge, author of Living Clay, Nature’s Own Miracle Cure, recommends starting with liquid clay. This is Calcium Bentonite Clay mixed with water at a ratio of 1 part clay to 8 parts water. In a large non-metallic bowl, mix 1/4 cup of liquid clay with 1 quart of water. Toss your fruits or vegetables in this clay water making sure they’re completely covered and let them sit for about 10 minutes. Rinse and dry them, and store them as you normally would.

You can add Calcium Bentonite Clay to your milk and drinking water if you’re concerned about the possibility of contamination there as well. Add approximately 1 ounce of liquid Calcium Bentonite Clay to a gallon of organic raw milk or water. Some people prefer to let the clay settle to the bottom of the liquid and discard that portion, while others prefer to shake it up and drink them together. Either is fine. Once a contaminant is ‘caught’ by the clay it will not be released, and the clay cannot be digested by your body. All contaminants adsorbed by the clay will be removed upon elimination. And it’s always a good practice to take one to two ounces of liquid Calcium Bentonite Clay twice a day, to keep your body detoxed.

Will any clay work?

No. When choosing a healing or detoxing clay, there are several criteria that should be followed. You want to choose an all natural, non-processed clay that is very pure and uncontaminated, with a pH of 8.5 or above. And you want to buy from a reputable company that provides quality control testing and professional packaging and has people available to answer any questions you might have. While Calcium Bentonite Clay will not interfere with the vast majority of medications, if you’re taking medication, check with your pharmacist to make certain it contains nothing that the clay would adsorb.

# 6 – And it’s always nice to end on a little Abraham, especially in any blog posts mentioning radiation :-)…

“It is not attention to lack of wellness that makes you sick. It is attention to the lack of many things… Chronic attention to unwanted things holds you in a place of disallowing your physical well-being, as well as disallowing the solutions to other things you are focused upon. If you would focus your attention upon the experience of physical well-being as much as you focus upon the absence of it, not only would your recovery come quickly, but maintaining your physical well-being and balance would also be easy.”— Abraham

# 1 – The latest astrological update from Astrograph.com

January 16th Last Quarter Moon

This Last Quarter Moon, taking place in the early morning hours of Monday, January 16th, ushers in a week-long period of reflection when we are profitably engaged in mulling over the events that have transpired during the previous three weeks of the SunMoon cycle. There is likely to be plenty of food for thought for each one of us, as indicated by the powerful symbolism of the starry messengers that we rely upon for cosmic guidance as we attempt to navigate these intense times. As we slow down to take stock during this last phase of the Capricornlunation, we are also brought into thoughtful re-alignment by the SaturnNeptune trine that is still quite active as Neptune begins to slip toward its entrance into its own sign of Pisces over the next few weeks. The dour restriction of Saturn is coming from a more realistic place than numinous Neptune, and tends to bring his fanciful flights down to earth, but this is not necessarily always so. The imaginative and cosmically sensitive outer planet energy of Neptune can equally hold sway and tend to confuse the practicality of the situation so that it is difficult to tell at any particular moment which end, so to speak, is really and truly up.

Saturn is strongly configured at this juncture, since it is conjuncted by the Moon and squared by the Sun just as it slows down, preparing to retrograde early next month, and comes within 2 degrees of an opposition to Jupiteras it does so. This is another powerful planetary amalgam, even though this last pass opposition to Jupiter never completes; in the weeks to come, Saturn retrogrades in the final degree of Libra and Jupiter moves on in Taurus. Over this period there could be reminders of the last time these two planetary archetypes were opposed, in late March of 2011, so that echoes of issues that were brought up at that time might return to haunt us in these next few weeks as Saturn makes its transition.

We are tuning to the inner in more ways than one, since Chiron in early Pisces is conjunct Neptune, and is also activated by Venus and by Mars during this interesting time period. Relationships are on our minds, and as well the personal blueprints of connection that we bring to the table of each potential interaction, scripts that are anchored in the past but not set in stone there, because we have the ability, by looking more closely into these ancient patterns, to recognize the places inside where we are stuck, and to move beyond them.

All these planetary combinations speak to the polarity of inner versus outer, and we win when we acknowledge the power of both of these modes of living and of soulful inquiry. There is neither one nor the other that is more important or more relevant for our day-to-day activities and decision making. When we accede to our deepest promptings we emulate wholeness and our outer lives proceed in greater alignment with what Spirit is asking of us. And when we take the time to examine more fully our internal motivations and past actions, we proceed with greater confidence and with renewed vigor into the unfolding joy of each present moment.

# 2 – An insightful and inspiring article from Guy Finley. I especially like this part…

“Real power, real fearlessness, is knowing that there’s only one reason life changes as it does: it is to reveal the secret Goodness underlying those same changes. Can we see how the realization of such a truth would have to spell the end of fear?”

# 3 – This great quote from Abraham seems to tie in nicely with the message in the Guy Finley article…

“A belief that the behavior of others must be controlled—so that your observation of that good behavior will make you feel good—leaves you feeling vulnerable to their behavior.

We would like to help you to understand that neither the good feeling you find when you observe wanted behavior, nor the bad feeling you find when you observe unwanted behavior, is actually the reason that you feel good or bad. The way you feel is only ever about your alignment, or misalignment, with the Source within you. It is only your relationship with the Source within you (with your own Inner Being) that is the reason for the emotions that you feel.

While it is nice to find things in your physical environment that enhance your good-feeling alignment with yourInner Being, your understanding of why you feel good will make it possible for you to feel good regardless of the behavior of others.

Understanding that the way you feel is really about your Vibrational relationship with your Inner Beingwith the Source within you, with the expanded version of you who resides inside your Vortex—gives you complete empowerment and absolute freedom.— Abraham

TIPS FOR TODAY:

# 1 – Here’s the latest astrological update on the current full moon phase from Astrograph.com. Very insightful….

December 10th Full Moon

This Gemini Full Moon taking place on Saturday, December 10th, is special even if only because it is also an eclipse; the Lunar Eclipse that follows the recent extremely potent Solar Eclipse and New Moon of November 24th – they usually come in pairs. Additionally, this Full Moon makes aspects to the same planets that have been so prominent lately and that were emphasized at the time of the New Moon, namely Jupiter, Uranus and Chiron. These heavy-weights occupy the first degrees of, respectively, Taurus, Aries and Pisces, and therefore all aspect each other, while at the time of the Full Moon they are aspected as well by Mercury, Venus and for Jupiter, the Sun and Moon. Uranus is now direct in motion, having stationed on the day before, December 9th. Uranus is therefore as a consequence much stronger even than usual. This powerful Full Moon eclipse thus continues the activation of these rather intense planetary energies.
We can see their combination in several ways: Chiron, emphasized by its connection to Uranus and to Jupiter, represents the deepest reaches within us, areas where we have been wounded by earlier circumstances that were too difficult to handle at the time and so have become walled away. Since Mercury squares Chiron while Venus also makes an aspect to it, we might have the chance to become more conscious of these deep and hidden places within us, as events bring them more readily to mind.
Uranus with Jupiter is the possibility of brilliant ideas coming to the fore, just at the time when we most sorely need them. In the surrounding culture, for example, we have seen the dilemma of the Occupy movement forces running out of places to go and direction to follow, but not running out of rage at the system that has ignored their needs for many years. The establishment has been in knee-jerk reaction to that simmering set of concerns, and undecided on what approach to take. We will see many and varied off-shoots of reactions, and reactions to the reaction in the months ahead. And this is one way that astrology is helpful; by analyzing the upcoming configurations we can be sure that the protest is likely to get more, rather than less, intense.
In personal terms as well, there are many new ideas simmering just below the level of conscious awareness that might easily become more alive to our conscious minds over the course of this climactic end-of-year period. Our depths and a segment of our inner wounding might be revealed. While not necessarily pretty, this could be at least more real to us than ever before; and truth is its own kind of beauty. As Mercury comes closer to its December 13th station, we are all engaged in meditating sincerely on our evolving situation which is also the story in micro of an evolving civilization as well. In our personal lives, and in the life of the surrounding collective, may we reach for the highest.

TIPS FOR TODAY:

# 1 – Here’s Astrograph.com’s take on the current full moon phase….

The Full Moon of Thursday, November 10th – taking place at roughly noon on the West Coast – while intense, is almost deceptively quiet as well. So much is happening beneath the surface. It is in any case the nature of this phase to represent a flowering plateau of the driving vigor from the very beginning of the cycle, a balance point between the various forces surging around in support and in contrast to the originating impulse from the New Moon time. The push of that onrushing energy finds a comforting moment of calm.

This particular configuration also has Mars opposed to Neptune, reminding us of a more laid back and cosmic perspective on all our experiences. Mars is at the same time also contra-parallel to Neptune, so that their brief opposition – lasting about a week – is quite potent. Mars with Neptune brings idealism very much to the fore, and heightens our ability to align compassionately to others, with also the possibility in working that out of deception or self-deception.

The latent intensity comes from Uranus and Pluto, still square to each other and triggered by the Full Moonwhich makes minor aspects to each. Jupiter is also trine Pluto and in forming semi-sextile to Uranus. These powerful archetypal energies remind us that there are obviously still important changes that we need to make in our lives, and in the life of the surrounding society. The idealism that Neptune brings might enable a relatively peaceful transition in the direction that your Higher Self feels sure that it needs to go.

Mars is opposed to Chiron during this week also, and we may find that old patterns are rising up to haunt us, impeding our own confidence, self-worth and self-assertion, until and unless we can accept these wounded places within us at deep levels. We might need to integrate the driving force behind them, namely ancient trauma from the long-dead past; dead but not forgotten, or in many cases not forgiven either.

At some point it pays to recognize that we have a powerful ally in that wounded and split-off disobedient child, however disenfranchised it might seem to feel much of the time. When we can accept all our parts, and by implication some of the more difficult parts of others as well, we are enabling greater forward motion in our own best interest, and greater joy along our way.

And the latest from Risa’s astrology column in the Santa Cruz Good Times publication…

Everyone knows our sciences (and thus humanity’s life force) have been thwarted, hindered and obstructed, taken over (appropriated) by the forces of materialism, especially since Tesla’s time.
This week, Friday, 11/11/11, Thrive: What on Earth Will it Take, Kimberly and Foster Gamble’s film premieres on the Internet, worldwide, in 10 languages.  Look for it. Unveiled in the film are truths (physics of life) we sense and aspire toward yet have accepted as unattainable. The information in Thrive shifts humanity, polarized in unknowingness, into the Light of Knowledge. The “sensed beauty” of our world becomes a reality. This information in “Thrive” forms the foundation of our new culture and civilization.
In Ancient Atlantean times, when gods lived on Earth, the Hierarchy (great teachers, overseers of Earth) gave instinctual, non-thinking (the mind was not developed) humanity various inventions that allowed for the building of great cities and beautiful buildings (remnants exist today), temples, air machines, knowledge of sanitation, hygiene, foods, etc. Developed under the wise guidance of the Hierarchy, humanity thought of these inventions as “magic.” The Initiates & Adepts (levels within Hierarchy) employed their knowledge of the nature of matter and energy (physics), which today we would call “scientific discovery.” This “physics” (nature of energy) was a gift to humanity.
Eventually a crisis precipitated the flooding of the world—resulting from a clash between the forces of darkness/materialism and the Forces of Light (Hierarchy). Humanity, in between, perished, with a few, who carried the Light, entering Noah’s Ark.

Today, we are once more at this “crisis” point (a higher level of the spiral).

# 3- And a little Abraham to off-set any fear brought up thinking about radiation :-)

“Ask, and it is given” means that whether you are a full blossoming genius human, or whether you are the one-celled amoeba in the ocean, or a cell in one of your bodies, when it is concluded that something else is preferred (no matter how developed the consciousness is) every time a preference is noted, Nonphysical Energy rushes forth to answer it. It is the promise of our evolving beingness.”— Abraham
