Ellias Lonsdale is the famous astrologer who you never heard of.
Still a West Coast 1960’s hippy at heart, Ellias is a wizard/visionary/wisdom keeper who lives in seclusion in Hawaii, no TV, no internet and no computer. In fact, he still uses a telephone answering service if you want to get in touch with him and does all his charts in long-hand form. Trained by two legendary astrologers of the 20th century in their own right, Dane Rudhyar, the father of transpersonal astrology and Marc Edmund Jones, the father of the Sabian Symbols system of foretelling and astrology, Ellias developed a unique form of astrology called Star Genesis astrology, which takes the entire cosmos into consideration. A very well-known student of Ellias’ is Rob Brezsney of Freewill Astrology fame, whose weekly column is in just about every alternative weekly in North America. You might have heard of him.
Normally I don’t plug anything or anyone unless my own experience has backed it up and over the years I have had a few readings with Ellias. He’s the real McCoy. The closest person I can compare him to, in terms of his own inspiration and the source of his insights is Ping Wu and his amazing online Taoist Diary which unfortunately has been missing in action since 1997 (Ping, if you ever read this, please come back out of hiding, we need you!). He listens to the earth, he listens to the stars, he’s informed by mythology, legends and history. Any conversation with Ellias sounds like a combination of Joseph Campbell, Erich von Daniken, Carl Jung and Eliphas Levi. In other words, you’d better know your stuff when you talk to him because the cultural and scientific references he uses can quickly go over your head if you’re not prepared (and not in a snobbish way, but just because of the range of subjects he covers to get his point across).
Like I mentioned, Ellias is quite reclusive and very anti-technology. He does that deliberately in order to keep his other senses alive and antennae alert. He sends out monthly cosmic weather reports with another student of his. His interviews are extremely rare. So when I stumbled on this interview the other night, even if it is almost 2 years old, I listened carefully. I wish there was a transcript of it somewhere because there’s a chockfull of information here which can easily generate 3 or 4 other posts on different topics. I will only focus on one here. (YouTube has all 5 parts of the complete interview in case anyone wants to listen to the whole thing)
From Part 2/5 at 6:47:
Host: Lucia Rene, is one of them, who writes about the patriarchy and she goes into more detail about what your books bring up about black magic and the rule of the magicians on this planet that are controlling things that are very dark but you’re saying that this is a time where that is loosening up, that the control of the patriarchy or the dark forces if you want to call it, is going to be released at some point and we’re going to be…
Ellias: Oh, yes it will, it will flare up like crazy before that point, yes it will be released. On a soul level, human beings have to dramatize things to a point of extremity before they can move with things…
Remember the quote I posted a few days ago from Aivanhov?
“We believe ourselves limited because we have never tried to go beyond our own experience, we think we are limited in space but we are wrong: above there is no limit.That is what led me to the conclusion that evil is limited in both time and space. Cosmic Intelligence did not intend evil to endure. It did not endow it with lasting power as It did good: the power of good is unlimited. That is the difference between good and evil, the only real difference.”
The powers that be are going to throw everything at us, including the kitchen sink. (more in Part 3 from 00:19 onwards). But it would seem that the stars themselves have now turned against them. This is insanely good news even if you’re in the middle of a shitstorm. The light has finally appeared.
Just ride the wave folks!
