ASTRO FLASH


By Barbara Hand CLow


Humans and societies function within cycles that are mirrored in the sky by the locations of the planets and the Moon going around the Sun. Just as it is possible to consider the basic personalities of the people invited to a party and predict what kind of party might result, it is possible to use planetary analysis to anticipate the qualities of the human social field on Earth during a given period of time. Astrology can predict how individuals might be feeling, just by knowing the archetypal influence of each planet plus the Moon. Just like a wild rock-n-roll dance party is very different from a black-tie dinner party, life on Earth is very different during wartime than it is during peacetime. Astrology also states clearly when an influence begins and is finished; this makes it possible to look back or go forward in time to identify patterns.

Meanwhile, the Elite (powers-that-be that control the world) debunk astrology while using it as a tool to predict human behavior to perpetrate their power games. This site observes how some global political powers use astrology to stay one step ahead of the people.

Astrology is the highest art for analyzing human behavior, and smart people use it. AstroFlash! looks at how the Elite might be planning events for us during the end of the Mayan Calendar, and it offers tips on how to live better amidst such transformative times. Also, this astrological analysis includes the influences of the Days and Nights of the Galactic Underworld-1999-2011, based on Carl Johan Calleman\'s time acceleration hypothesis, which explores Nine Underworlds of evolution in the universe over 16.4 billion years. AstroFlash! explores how individuals can succeed and be free and happy during the remainder of the Mayan Calendar.

How have we gotten to this critical juncture? Why are 1999 through 2011 so critical for the survival of our species? My recent book Catastrophobia (2001) theorizes that we are afflicted with a crippling, species-level, post-traumatic stress syndrome that I call \"catastrophobia\". This trauma complex developed 11,500 years ago as the result of a great cosmic catastrophe in our solar system. This malaise in the collective psyche of our species deepened during thousands of years after the 9500 BC cataclysm, when our ancestors endured starvation and horrific environmental stress. Before this time during the Regional Underworld-100,000 BC through AD 2011--Earth was the Garden of Eden; we experienced oneness with our planet. These events that separated us from nature are deeply buried in our minds. Just like adults who once endured early-childhood abuse that they\'ve largely forgotten, we must heal ourselves by recovering these memories and understanding how they have changed us.

Catastrophobia presents evidence that Earth\'s axis did not tilt very much before 9500 BC, when the cosmic disaster disarranged the whole solar system. Therefore, AstroFlash! is structured by seasonality--equinoxes and solstices-because once the axis tilted, early humans quickly learned how to maximize their potential by arranging their lives by the seasons. Seasonality is not taken into account much in modern times, but it actually has a huge influence on human consciousness. George W. Bush invaded Iraq exactly during the Spring Equinox of 2003 because the Elite knew this moment had formative potential. This was also Day Three of the Galactic, so this invasion caused events that will influence the rest of the Galactic Underworld.

Once Earth\'s axis tilted 11,500 years ago, the new seasons necessitated agriculture for human survival, and gradually hunter-gatherer cultures gave up their ways of life that were in harmony with nature. Focus on the seasons and lunar cyles goes way back to more than 10,000 years ago, which is why AstroFlash! examines them in detail. I\'ve discovered ancient ways to balance our consciousness by showing how to use the potentiality of each season with intention. I believe that we must utilize the potential of this quarterly pattern to slowly integrate our neurological systems with the changes caused by the recently tilting axis. Like Humpty Dumpty falling off his wall, we can\'t put ourselves back together again. We can use the cycles of the Moon to master our emotions very effectively when the lunar analysis is understood in light of the four seasons. This technique really helps us handle time acceleration.

The great cataclysm disarranged the solar system and greatly disturbed many planetary patterns. For example, Uranus tilts 90 degrees on its axis. Uranus rules cultural transformations, and by its foundation chart, the United States is very influenced by Uranus. Now that we are moving into the Age of Aquarius, which Uranus rules, the USA is poised to become the global empire. AstroFlash! incorporates the birth chart of the USA in 1776, which is in the Methodology which follows. The ancients discovered they could assess politics realm by examining the conjunctions of Jupiter and Saturn every twenty years-the Trigons. The current Elite, the \"Bushites\", seized the agenda of the recent May 2000 Trigon. This has enabled them to run the show during the Galactic Underworld, so this site examines their obvious use of astrology. It offers advice on how individuals can get out of the way, as the so-called \"leaders\" create mass-trauma events, such a 9/11. These things are done because they stimulate catastrophobia and fear.

AstroFlash! breaks the four seasons down into three lunar cycles within the context of major planetary transits. I offer some lunar and seasonal chart comparison with background charts (see Methodology) by means of combust (less than 1 degree by conjunction) aspects. We begin with how you can master seasonality. This is written for people north of the equator, yet if you live south of the equator, just reverse summer and winter.

[ OLD LINK REMOVED ]Seasonality

The New Year is not January 1st! The new year-the Spring Equinox-occurs around March 21, when the Sun enters 0 degrees Aries by geocentric astrology. For Earth, this is when the Sun is directly over the equator. Then it tracks north until it reaches the Tropic of Cancer at 0 degrees Cancer during the Summer Solstice around June 21. Then it turns back and crosses over the equator at 0 degrees Libra during to the Fall Equinox around September 23. It moves south of the equator until it reaches the Tropic of Capricorn at 0 degrees Capricorn on the Winter Solstice around December 21. Then the Sun seems to move north again for its return to the equator for the next Spring Equinox. Of course, the Sun only seems to move in this pattern from Earth\'s view, since the phenomena is caused by the tilt of Earth\'s axis as it orbits the Sun during a solar year.

The modern calendar abuses our conciousness! The time to make plans for each year is during the Spring Equinox, not during the so-called \"New Year\". The most philosophical and spiritual time of the year is the Winter Solstice, which is reduced to addictions and consumerism by Christmas shopping, eating, and drinking. In fact, December 21st to March 21st, the last quarter of the year, is our yearly completion time. The special days and nights right before the Winter Solstice are the most mystical time of the year, and we should meditate for hours during this time. Then when the Sun is in Capricorn, Aquarius, and Pisces before the Spring Equinox, we should be deepening our understandings of all the things we have learned during the last nine months-the previous Spring Equinox to the Winter Solstice.

The Spring Equinox is the time to identify the intentions we wish to fulfill during the four seasons. Ideas correctly seeded at the Spring Equinox manifest for a year, and I will offer instructions for correctly seeding ideas and manifesting them through the rest of the seasons. During the Summer Solstice, the time has arrived to birth these ideas into recognizable form, like a forming fetus. The Fall Equinox is the time to flesh out, balance, and assess these creations and to weed things out that just are not working. Then the Winter Solstice is the time to enter into deep contemplation to imagine how our personal creations assist others and the planet.

The Winter Solstice is the time to be brutally honest and evaluate whether our ideas enhance others or whether they may actually be detrimental for evolution. A sweet elixir of knowing comes the day of the Winter Solstice when the light begins to return, and each one of us can put greater realities above our personal desires. It is no accident that in Western cultures commercial Christmas is inserted just when people are amazingly psychic and attuned! I suggest you cancel Santa Claus during the Winter Solstice and spend three months reflecting on what you\'ve created during the year.

[ OLD LINK REMOVED ]2010 Spring Equinox: Saturday, March 20 / View Chart

The Spring Equinox has arrived, the beginning of the solar year in the Northern Latitudes. It is time to decide what you want to create this year, and then use manifestation to empower these ideas. If you want to have an ordered intentional life, choose your projects in the spring, deepen this work during summer, and then balance these creations with the other aspects of your life during fall. From the Winter Solstice until spring, we naturally fall into deep contemplation about what we are creating in the world. If you live this way, you will find yourself moving into attunement with Nature.

Since Christmas 2009, many of you have let go of old judgments and sureties about what you want to do with your life. Now, you are pristine, you are a fertile field for new intentions. This is especially true this spring because Mars went direct in Leo a few weeks before the ingress of the Sun into Aries. This \"popped\" many hidden things into the light that will be cleared away, which will make space for new ideas.

When the Sun moves into Aries, the potential for manifesting new realities is always very powerful. Whatever you intend during the Spring Equinox tends to happen easily and forcefully. And, whatever is in your mind tends to happen without you even intending it, so it is wise to be very clear about what you are thinking about right now. Sort out what you\'d really like to be involved in this year, now that you are emerging from deep winter contemplation. You are an empty wineskin waiting to be filled. Our ancient ancestors discovered that they could create almost anything by using the powers if the Spring Equinox. In modern times the Easter Bunny and/or the Resurrection draws our attention away from this opportunity. Meanwhile, choosing three things you want to create during the Spring Equinox really works! So, begin a few days before spring actually arrives by making your list of three and have them ready for meditation.

About fifteen minutes before the solar entry into Aries, sit alone or in a circle with friends, and then bring out your list. Writing things down ahead of the time is a good idea. My favorite manifestation technique is described in detail in The Alchemy of Nine Dimensions on pages 131-32 of the first edition and pages 133-34 in the newly-released second edition. Here is a quick summary: Beginning with the first intention you think you want to create, read it, then close your eyes and imagine yourself actually having it; feel what this would be like. Then say to yourself, \"If I could have it, would I take it?\" You may be surprised to discover that sometimes you don\'t want something, while knowing what you do want clears your head. If you honestly can answer yes to having this thing, then go on and manifest it. Otherwise, drop the idea.

With your wish in mind, do three visualizations of scenes that portray this creation actually happening in your life. Never include people who might make this possible for you because that is influencing others, or conjuring. First of all, it doesn\'t work, and secondly, you are interfering with others. As you visualize each scene, see each image in front of your third eye. Once it is clearly visible in your third eye, transfer this picture to the back of your skull right above the top of your spine (medulla oblongata), and see your medulla as a television screen and transfer the image onto it. See it as clearly as possible, make it crackle, and then go right to work on the next scene. Once you\'ve visualized all three scenes, say, \"So be it!\" Then use the same visualization process with the two other things on your list. Put your list away somewhere for reference during the year. I have a special box for mine.

You may also want to have the Spring Equinox chart and this reading with you during the Equinox meditation. For some people, understanding the quality of the energy that exists enhances their manifestation powers. The Spring Equinox chart describes an energy field that will have great influence over the next three months, leading up to the Summer Solstice. First a creational field sets into the planet during the Equinox, and then it just keeps on developing and recalibrating during the three New Moons that follow. Nature invents new worlds during the spring, so by manifesting things at this time, you are putting in your \"order\" on the hot list, so to speak. Most people who use this technique for a few years are shocked by how successful it is. So, watch out for what you ask for!

This year\'s Spring Equinox is very formative, because Mercury/Sun in Aries conjuncts Uranus in Pisces and opposes Saturn in Libra. And, Pluto in Capricorn forms the head of a T-square to this intense opposition of four planets. The energy intensity is the strongest between the close opposition of the Equinox Sun to Saturn in 1 degrees of Libra. Saturn retrograde in Libra is pulling away from its exact square to Pluto on January 31, and its final square will be on August 21. There is also a very close square to Pluto from Mercury in Aries, which locks in the intensity of this T-square and accentuates the developments inspired by the great Saturn/Pluto squares.

This means spring 2010 will be a tense, combative, change-oriented time that will shift many entrenched realities. I will discuss a few specific issues that suddenly popped into the limelight when Mars went direct. In my reading for the Pisces New Moon (March 15), I noted that recent earth changes are going to pressure our species to stop wasting precious resources in warfare, because so many people on the planet are suffering calamities. Well, this Equinox T-square is going to push relentlessly for the end to this profligate waste.

Saturn-square-Pluto was very close together from November until now, and it is only moving apart for a little while this spring. The current T-square involving five planets (Mercury/Sun/Uranus/Saturn/Pluto) locks in the influence of Saturn-square-Pluto all the way through the spring season. Saturn in Libra (October 2009-October 2012) pushes Pluto in Capricorn\'s struggle to transform economic and societal structures into a balancing mode. Regardless of Saturn\'s struggle for harmony, the Sun in 0 Aries demands we just get the job done. This Equinox is going to be characterized by a resounding scream for action, deep change, and new pathways, a shift that already started when Mars went direct on March 10. This process actually began when Pluto went into Capricorn in 2008, and then it deepened during the first Saturn/Pluto square in November 2009. Systems that have been tottering are going to crash, such as the Catholic Church under the pressure of clerical sexual scandals, and the many countries that are threatened with economic collapses. Mercury in Aries ahead of the Equinox Sun suggests that many people know exactly what is going on, and they are fostering these collapses because they seek new ways to create what they want in our world. Uranus in late Pisces just before the Aries Sun means that the spiritual awakening of Uranus in Pisces (2003-2011) is culminating this spring. Just imagine how new spiritual pathways will open when Uranus goes into Aries during Spring Equinox 2011!

This great T-square heralds a great crisis in consciousness that can shake up dysfunctional systems. The Galactic Underworld time acceleration (1999-2011) has been exposing many of the abusive systems that have been used to manipulate people, such as medicine-for-profit. The Roman Catholic Church has manipulated people for two thousand years, but now the priestly sexual-abuse scandals are penetrating the Vatican and rocking the Petrine throne. Clerical sexual-abuse scandals and huge payments to the victims have been weakening the American Catholic Church for more than twenty years. In the last few years, Ireland has been rocked by 15,000 abuse complaints. In Germany, the Vatican has been on the defensive since 170 former students of Catholic schools came forward with abuse claims in Church-run orphanages and schools.

Bishop Giuseppi Versaldi of the Pontifical Gregorian University in Rome announced that the Pope has been \"a vigilant shepherd of his flock decisively denouncing the filth in the priesthood.\" Strangely, on March 13, just after Mars went direct, the Munich archdiocese reported that when he was the Cardinal Archbishop of Munich, Joseph Ratzinger (now called Benedict) had approved therapy for a priest known to be an abuser in the 1980s. Then Ratzinger transferred the pedophile to Upper Bavaria, where he was soon convicted for abusing minors. Ratzinger knew this priest was an abuser, yet he allowed him to continue in his ministry. Some writers, such as John Clooney, are already saying that Ratzinger\'s position as Supreme Pontif could become untenable. These transits are tearing up institutions that have been controlling human access to divine consciousness for too long.

The Equinox Moon gives us a reading for the condition of the public mind. The Moon in 26 Taurus is in a tight square to Chiron/Neptune. Stolid Moon in Taurus tells us that our spiritual healing crisis, inspired by the long-lasting Chiron/Neptune conjunctions in Aquarius, is coming to a head this spring. The great wise bull has the depth and patience to cry \"Enough!\" The public is not going to be patient with platitudes and procrastinations now; they will demand that heads will roll. The Moon in Taurus trining Saturn in Libra means that our feelings will be strong and confident this spring. Simply put, the public is going to be demanding and irate, and they are going to throw off their oppressors.

Newly-direct Mars in Leo is the real key to the spring because it aspects so many other planets, like a musician playing all the octaves. Mars closely trines the Sun going into Aries, a very benefic influence this spring. As each one of us strives to do things in new ways, Mars trining the Equinox Sun will give us strength and will power, a clear sense of direction, and the ability to just put ourselves into first gear. Saturn in Libra closely sextiles Mars in Leo, so we will have harmonic structural support when we use our will power to get what we want. Mars in Leo also sextiles the Moon in Taurus, which means we will be emotionally stable while undertaking difficult things. Pluto in Capricorn is quincunx to Mars in Leo during the Equinox. This firey and earthy quincunx is exact in mid-April, and then Pluto goes retrograde until mid-September, right before the Fall Equinox. While we consider the deep structural changes inspired by Pluto, Mars in Leo will nudge and push us to get involved in these processes. People will tend to just charge forward in spite of any obstacles because retrograde Pluto in early Capricorn will be constantly reminding them it is time to change.

When Mars went direct on March 10, all kinds of blocked processes began releasing, such as the Arab/Israeli stalemate. Just when Vice President Joe Biden completed talks with the Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas, Israel announced they were building 1600 more homes for Jews in East Jerusalem on Palestinian land. This was a slap in the face to official American policy, as well as an act of utter rudeness. Biden responded to this insulting behavior by arriving at a state dinner with Premier Netanyahu ninety minutes late, a radical way to show displeasure in the Middle East. As I write this file, Hillary Clinton is being very vocal about this insult to America, while the media calls it the \"New Chill\". Well, if the United States changes its policy toward the Israelis, it would influence all policy in the Middle East; this Spring Equinox chart predicts such great changes.

Perhaps women like Hillary Clinton will be able to cause change this spring. Venus in 16 Aries squares the lunar North Node in 18 Capricorn and the South Node in 18 Cancer. When the nodes are in Capricorn/Cancer (August 2009 through March 2011), we are inspired to construct new structures and systems that work for us by letting go of old security and nurturance. We are in the middle of this process, and Venus in Aries squaring the lunar nodes suggests a karmic crisis this spring over the role of women and power in society. As we come to the end of the Mayan Calendar and as the National and Planetary structures are falling, the patriarchy that created them also must go, yet many men just don\'t know how to change. Women need to assume more power this spring to function as guides while these structures fall away.

Jupiter in Pisces is not aspected during the Spring Equinox, which means its spiritual and tectonic force is weak this spring. Perhaps, and I am only speculating, religious tension will calm this spring, and certainly the tectonic factor needs calming. I wrote a lot about the high level of earthquakes in the Pisces New Moon reading, and the quakes are continuing with a 6.6 quake in Japan on March 13. I am very concerned about these quakes, and I am sure you are too. So, I\'d like to end this reading with a very funny commentary on my favorite subject, sex.

A report on sex and aging from the British Medical Journal was released on March 10, just when Mars went direct, so the information in this report is very relevant. I want to report on it here because the global-elite-run media will probably be directed to not discuss it. It contains some very damaging information about the use of recreational sex drugs, such as Viagra and Cialis. It caught my eye because there has been almost no discussion about what is really going on with these drugs since they were introduced in 1998 (Galactic Underworld stimulants!). Yet, these drugs are widely advertised in seductive ways, causing doctors to hand them out like candy, yet there are no public studies of how they affect health.

The researchers found that men tend to be sexually active until they hit 70 and women until they are 66. For those women who were sexually active at age 75-85, only half reported their sex lives were \"good\", yet men had more favorable reports. There are obviously many ways to interpret these findings, but several things really stand out for me. First of all, many women end up being single after they are 60 because they lose their partners to death or younger women. Meanwhile, many men want to keep themselves sexually active, especially if they have younger partners. Erectile dysfunction (ED) drugs have really changed the playing field since 1998 by creating a sexual renaissance during the Galactic Underworld. Yippie!

But, there is a dark side to all this fun between the sheets-heart attacks for older men, not to mention trips to the chiropractor! In Switzerland, a country that tends to take responsibility for its citizens, brothels are being required to train their prostitutes to use defibrillators to help prevent clients from dying in the throes of passion! Well, here is my issue: Practitioners of alternative medicine are forbidden to prescribe many substances and to use alternative techniques because somebody might get hurt. Yet, the truth about the real dangers of ED drugs is suppressed. How many men are having heart attacks while using these drugs? Since this is often embarrassing for families, the old guy just gets sent quietly off to the undertaker. Big Pharma doesn\'t want to lose profits and maybe some elderly old men just want to blow themselves away in bed? The problem is, men and women who might benefit from ED drugs have no way to evaluate their safety, and should not use them until the truth is told. Maybe nobody is paying attention, since they are the only legal way to commit suicide right now? With that happy thought, let me wish you a happy spring!

[ OLD LINK REMOVED ]Pisces New Moon: March 15, 2010 View Chart

It is the New Moon in Pisces, the time to evaluate access to the spiritual worlds. This urge is very intense now because Chiron was conjunct Neptune during the previous New Moon in Aquarius; this released a piercing wave of pain that caused many people to feel profound separation from the divine. After a century of war and scientism and the recent accelerated takeover by technology, the spiritual worlds have mostly been forgotten. However, spiritual contact and communication are the only source of true happiness and joy, the only source of consolation amidst the sadness and pain of life. There is no meaning in life without sharing spirit\'s joy, so with this Pisces New Moon, we need to awaken just before the Sun blasts into don\'t-look-back Aries during the Spring Equinox. This New Moon is especially compelling with five planets in Pisces, four of them very close together. Retrograde Saturn in early Libra opposes the group in late Pisces, a hard and unavoidable reminder of how much we need balance now.

During last month\'s Aquarian cycle, Earth began to vibrate in a new way. This process began during the January 12 Haiti quake a few days before the Solar Eclipse in Capricorn. Energy flows intensified during the Aquarian cycle that culminated during the February 28 Full Moon, when Jupiter was conjunct the Sun in Pisces opposing the Full Moon in Virgo. Just before this Jupiterian Full Moon, on February 26, there was a 7.0 quake under the sea south of Japan, and the Canadian, American, and South American west coasts were put under tsunami alerts. On February 27, the Chilean plate released an 8.8 magnitude mega-quake just before the Full Moon, just when Mercury came to Chiron/Neptune in 27 Aquarius. During the Full Moon, the area affected by the 8.8 quake south of Santiago shook and rolled. On March 4, there was another strong quake near Japan as well as a 6.6 quake north of Santiago, which was not an aftershock for the 8.8 quake. On March 5, a 6.5 quake occurred off the coast of Sumatra, and on March 8 there was a pre-dawn 6.1 quake in Eastern Turkey. Rumors abound that the American HAARP project is being used to trigger earthquakes, just when a consortium of doctrinaire geologists put out an announcement that there is no more tectonic activity than usual. [BS!] Whoever or whatever is causing this shaking, our species is on alert.

Wild and chaotic weather was also in the news during the previous lunation: England and France suffered horrible winter storms; the Baltic Sea was choked with ice that trapped ships; the canals in Amsterdam froze and people skated through the city; record setting blizzards shut down the Eastern US and many airports; the island of Madeira suffered catastrophic floods; and three \"super waves\" on the Mediterranean nearly capsized a cruise boat. Nature is awakening our planet with new waves of energy, which are also stirring up subconscious fears. These great earth changes are awakening our connections to divine levels because our highest levels of emotions are spiritual; we need to be in touch with our souls during these challenging times.

Bringing time acceleration into the discussion, we should not be surprised that earth changes are intensifying right now. Here we are in Night Six of the Galactic Underworld (November 7, 2009, to November 2, 2010). Our current moment corresponds to Night Six of the Regional Underworld (13,800 through 5900 BC), a time of constant cataclysms that peaked in 9500 BC. The real story of the past 100,000 years has been strangely withheld from the public, so these hidden memories are stirring up deep subconscious fears in our minds. [See Catastrophobia, and pages 76-80 of The Mayan Code, by Clow.] Many people are suffering with an unnamed, hideous, inner terror right now, as if they can hear boards creak under the feet of a creepy killer lurking in the basement. But, we are different now, and the current changes offer new things for us to learn. I think we are being prodded to reprioritize how we handle pain, which may finally push our species to realize it is an obscenity to engage in warfare amidst great natural disasters. Casualties and injuries overwhelm medical systems, and whole societies can\'t even care for their own citizens because the resources go to warfare.

This Pisces New Moon heralds a great spiritual crisis for our species, and the earth changes are a sign of what is coming. The whole Aquarian lunation with Chiron conjunct Neptune ripped open hidden wounds lurking within our denied shadows; many people wonder if they even want to be alive. I seek a new vision for how we can live in joy and trust, as James Cameron did for us in his blockbuster film, Avatar. We must remember our traumatic past in order to remove our quarantine from the rest of the universe.

It is possible to plan how to handle these great changes; and as they build and build, we will. Weak politicians who procrastinate all day waiting for the cocktail hour disgust everyone, now that we are in such dire times. For example, the weather in the northern latitudes may indicate that the warm ocean currents that temper the Eastern US and Western Europe are slowing down and getting ready to stop. Yet, all we hear is that El Niño and/or global warming is the cause, while the new carbon-credit millionaires pocket the sales. These issues are coming up now because: 1) the New Moon chart and Night Six call for our attention to them, and 2) because the most intense reckoning period will be during May/June 2010, the dates that correspond to the peak of the Regional Underworld cataclysms. We\'ve got to keep pushing for ending wars, as well as redirecting energy use and cultivation planning; otherwise, we won\'t have the energy or resources to handle acts of nature.

It is time to sort out and face the fears you\'ve been feeling. Is fear and terror coming from ancient memories that are awakening in your mind, or is there something you need to pay attention to right now? Find that place in you that demands your right for responsible leadership-instead of putting up with fools and their lame excuses. Keep your attention on what leaders are doing, such as noticing how quickly Obama ran out of influence when he lost his vision. Never forget to ask for divine assistance, divine intervention, even if the leaders have forgotten this. For my part, let\'s see what the New Moon chart can tell us about what is coming up this month.

The New Moon joining Mercury/Uranus/Sun in an exact stellium in Pisces lifts the veils to the spirit worlds. Last month the New Moon conjoined Chiron/Neptune exposing our inner wounds that block spirit. You now have access codes in your body/mind that can dial up cosmic consciousness. Advanced spiritual agencies can move into your body/mind when the New Moon removes the veils to spirit. This process will be very subtle and probably not registered until an hour after the New Moon; your lower and higher minds will merge when Mercury exactly conjuncts Uranus in Pisces. Then a few hours after Mercury joins Uranus, the Moon comes to Mercury/Uranus, which will awaken you to the merging of your lower and higher minds. The Sun exactly conjuncts Uranus the day after the New Moon, when your whole being will be flooded with these higher vibrations.

The Sun was exactly conjunct Jupiter during the February 28 Full Moon, when the Moon was very close to the Earth. This is could be what set off all the earthquakes. During the Pisces New Moon, Jupiter is in 13 Pisces, sharing the Piscean resonance with the stellium, but Jupiter is not aspected. This suggests we will be processing the damage from the quakes that have already occurred, since Jupiter is so often involved in earthquakes. Meanwhile, Saturn retrograde is in a wide opposition to the stellium. When the Sun makes its exact opposition to Saturn right after the Spring Equinox, structures will crumble but not necessarily because of earth changes. For example, financial structures may be shaken, since we are building up to a July opposition between Saturn in Libra and Uranus in Aries. Saturn opposing the stellium is tense, compacted, and determined. With the world so distressed during Night Six, I have been amazed by leaders who fritter away our money and refuse to change. Well, this New Moon might change that. Saturn squares Pluto, so the need for deep structural change is ongoing.

Mars in Leo went direct on March 10; and during the New Moon, Mars is in favorable aspect to many planets. Mars trines the New Moon/ Mercury/Uranus/Sun stellium in late Pisces, which could mean we are about to see great courage coming forth on the planet. Mars exactly trines the Spring Equinox Sun, which indicates rising courage all spring. Mars was uneasy while it was retrograde in Leo, but now he charges ahead to get the job done. Mars sextiling Saturn in Libra offers patience and a tendency for wise action instead of impetuous foolishness. Mars forms a quincunx to Chiron/Neptune, which fosters the need for spiritual direction. Mars quincunx Pluto in Capricorn favors contentiousness and overt aggression, and this long-lasting aspect (October 2009, and February through April 2010) has not been good for peace making. Venus has moved past a square to Pluto, but the influence is still in play, so women are encouraged to wake up the world.

Overall, this is a tight mystical field of energy, like a shaman working an activated power point for days and days. For me, the piercing of old wounds during the Aquarius lunar phases was almost too much to bear. Perhaps the lifting of the veils during the Pisces New Moon will feel like a welcome relief. The Spring Equinox comes in a few days when the new longer-term field moves in, so tune in for that reading in just a few more days!

Yet, because the US is attempting to be the world empire, these charts influence the world. They tend to \"frame\" each New Moon within a season and focalize the greater planetary cycles into our personal lives. All major cycles are very potent as we come to the end of the Mayan Calendar during the Galactic Underworld. Next is a discussion of why I consult the charts listed above.

[ OLD LINK REMOVED ]The European Imperialism Trigon, May 21, 1702: View ChartThis is the beginning of the current Superior Trigon Cycle-Jupiter-conjunct-Saturn in early Aries that ends around AD 2498. Superior Trigons are approximately 796 years long, and they are fantastic for analyzing long historical cycles. The Superior Trigon Cycle always begins in the early degrees of Aries (cardinal fire), which initiates new social forces on Earth. Trigons reveal how expansionary forces (Jupiter) manifest structures (Saturn), and also show how constriction may limit possibilities. Saturn tends to control the inner planets and the Sun and fields the potency of the outer planets--Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto. Jupiter works to receive outer-planet intelligence and disseminate it into the inner planets. The Jupiter/Saturn conjunction occurs every twenty years, and American popular culture (as well as the Elite) has leaned to fear it, since the USA president in office during the conjunction often dies in office. For example, Abraham Lincoln and John Kennedy died, and Ronald Reagon was wounded. For my purposes, Trigons indicate which element--earth, air, fire, or water--dominates society. This influence is huge and illuminating, and we will experience the transition from earth to air in 2020. On that Winter Solstice day, Jupiter will conjunct Saturn in 0 degrees Aquarius. The earth element has been ruling since July 17, 1802, and the May 28, 2000 Trigon is the last cycle in earth. The last 200 years, mostly during the Planetary Underworld-1755-2011, have indeed been very earthy and material, which has greatly taxed Earth\'s ecology.Regarding the Superior Trigon of 1702, the element is fire, and the chart for it reveals a lot about the plans of European Imperialists mostly led by the British, French, and Germans since 1702. This process was intensified by the Earth Trigon in 1802, which added America to the group. The Superior Trigon with the Moon, Neptune, and Venus conjuncting the Jupiter conjunct Saturn in Aries set off persistent aggressive forces, remarkable liberation and pain for women, and a potent spiritual transformation over 800 years. It seems to suggest that the individual development of will is what can prepare us for the Age of Aquarius. Nostradamus used the 1702 Trigon for many of his prophecies, yet he used a chart for the Spring Equinox before this Trigon, since he could not calculate the Jupiter/Saturn conjunction exactly. I use the exact conjunction in 1702 for the modern world, since now we can calculate the exact conjunction. (See The Secrets of Nostradamus, by David Ovason, Harper Collins, 2001, and The Mountain Astrologer, \"The Great Conjunctions and the World Trade Center Attacks,\" by Robert Hand, April/May 2002, for more information.)

[ OLD LINK REMOVED ]The American Imperialism Trigon, July 17, 1802: View Chart This is the chart for Jupiter-conjunct-Saturn for the current cycle in earth, which occurred in early Virgo, when the USA joined the European Imperialists to play out various territorial designs. To understand more about how these cycles work by elements and triplicities, see The Mountain Astrologer article mentioned just above. I am working with this cycle a bit differently than Robert Hand. For example, he uses the Spring Equinox ingress in 1841 for the beginning of the earth cycle, and I use July 17, 1802, the first conjunction in earth, even though the next Jupiter/Saturn conjunction retrograded back to fire. I think the first entry into earth is the key, even if it moves back into a previous element. The 1802 chart aspects the 1776 USA chart strongly, which pulled the US into the European power games. This chart predicts great change and growth for the US, which occurred after 1802, when the industrial revolution of the Planetary Underworld (1755-2011 was in full swing.

[ OLD LINK REMOVED ]The Bushite Trigon, May 28, 2000: View ChartThis chart indicates how our hopes and dreams will be structured by the earth element until December 21, 2020, when the Trigon will occur in 0 degrees Aquarius during the Winter Solstice. These twenty years are strikingly significant for our species. The Bushites took over with such overwhelming power in America as soon as they got into office, their alteration of basic systems, such as Homeland Security, will tend to dominate for the whole twenty years. This chart indicates how we will use the last phase of the earth element--grounding ourselves. When we move into the air element--living by movement and energy--we will fly, especially since the air conjunction will be in 0 degrees Aquarius as the Age of Aquarius is moving in. Chiron is conjunct Pluto (on the USA rising conjunct Pluto in the WTC chart) opposite Sun and Mars, which suggests continual problems with violence and darkness that will force people to process the past and heal. Saturn-conjunct-Jupiter is in 23 degrees Taurus squaring Uranus in 22 degrees Aquarius, indicating the period will involve tense and creative experiments with resources. The chart indicates the USA will try to protect itself by controlling the world (due to the 11-12 degree Sag. influence and the Trigon rising is conjunct the USA Mercury). There will be remarkable exposures of how power and evil function, which will be extremely difficult for US citizens, who believe in the right to \"the American way of life\".

[ OLD LINK REMOVED ]USA 1776 Founding Chart--July 4, 1776: View ChartAll analysis of US politics uses some version for the foundation of America. This version is known as the Sibley chart.

[ OLD LINK REMOVED ]The Millennial Chart (Chiron conjunct Pluto), December 30, 1999: : View Chart This aspect is important because it was the most critical aspect as we entered the New Millennium. 11 Sagittarius is prominent in the WTC Bombing Chart and the USA Founding Chart. This was when the mundane world was herded into fear over the \"Y2K crash\", which actually did happen at the end of 2000 as the Nasdaq techie crash. Neptune was exact conjunct the Lunar South Node as we approached 2000 showing that we were mired in confusion. Chiron was conjunct Pluto previously in July 1941, the depths of WWII. Pluto conjunct Chiron exposes the nasty dark world of Pluto-manipulation and power games--so that a healing can come like lancing boils. Since this is the first conjunction with Pluto since Chiron was sighted in 1977, it triggered a crisis over how humanity can consciously face the darkest Plutonian forces and heal evil by processing pain. We must understand why humanity is so destructive, or at least learn to recognize real evil and take action against it. As hidden truths come out, priestly sex abuse, computer fraud, abuse of poor nations by rich nations, and shocking power grabs are becoming more visible every day. The Chiron/Pluto conjunction was in Sagittarius, which means we have sixty years of healing the pain over abuse from religions, so hold onto your hats, especially Roman Catholic Cardinals! By the end of this sixty-year phase, the truth about religious power games will be fully exposed. Watch for synchronicities between exposure of Elite corruption and the Roman Church, since they have worked in tandem for the past 2000 years.

[ OLD LINK REMOVED ]World Trade Center Bombing, September 11, 2001: View ChartI consult this chart because the USA is the most powerful country on Earth, and 9/11 made it possible for it to aggressively pursue military adventures in the world, mostly against the desire of its citizens. 9/11 functions as a timelock on Americans, since everything shifted fundamentally on that fateful day.
