February 2016 Astrology- A Breather before the Charge

 

February 2016 looks like it will be some kind of pause before the action spills over in all directions. Both Carl Boudreau and Steve Judd have indicated that something is definitely in the air. Steve said that the first 6 months of 2016 will be still of an uphill battle while the second half is where we crest the hill and can ride down with our bicycles, with gravity behind and below us doing the work and the wind in our hair while we speed down.

Already 2016 has been a heavy year, with the sudden rash of deaths of many prominent public figures in January alone, the Oscars race heating up again on issues of diversity and inclusion and more than just a handful of Tinseltown types talking about the systems of racism and privilege in Lalaland and within the greater United States and the UK (I wrote about it last year as well, no change there – sigh).

And then of course the American election gearing up with the first series of caucuses taking place on February 1st in New Hampshire and Iowa which will no doubt set the tone for the rest of the campaign year.

Carl pointed out that Neptune is the cosmic solvent and that there will be a very powerful Sun and Neptune conjunction on February 28th.

“The Sun/Neptune conjunction on February 28th marks a special moment during Neptune’s tenure at the top of its power.
Our egos have been pummeled by outer turmoil, worked over by inner turmoil and soaked in cosmic solvent for many years now. We have been set up to change fundamentally and forever. And we want to, just not quite yet.
I believe the energy of the Sun/Neptune conjunction on February 28 will overcome our last bit of resistance to change. As personalities around the globe experience this lasts big ‘nudge’ the pace of global change will accelerate dramatically.
The progressive tipping point will have been reached. Expect to hear of preliminary and precursor events as February 28 approaches.
I believe the suddenly enhanced willingness to make changes will soon become apparent globally, on all levels. Resistance we thought would continue to block reform indefinitely will evaporate.”

This reminds me of a geography lesson which I still remember from back in the 7th grade. We were taught that the 3 main types of rocks in the world, which generally fell under three categories were i) Igneous Rocks (rocks and minerals which are the result of the cooling of magma and lava) ii) Metamorphic Rocks (rocks with are the result of intense transformative pressures and geological changes deep within the earth like marble) and iii) Sedimentary Rocks (rocks usually produced from layers and layers of debris usually under water, which over time solidify and become rocks like sandstone).

Change, like the aforementioned rocks, usually happens deep, deep underground for mind-numbingly extended periods of time. We’re walking and don’t even realize the intense, constant but quiet and incremental pressures at work underneath us. Sometimes we’re reminded when we see a volcano blow, and the change is very sudden and in-your-face.

New Hampshire's famous "Old Man of the Mountain", stood unchanged for hundreds of years and then about 13 years ago started to crumble away.

Sometimes things brew for a long, long time unnoticed and then one day, you look again and things just aren’t the same anymore. Something has permanently shifted and you can’t go back to the way things were.

We’re on the brink of something. Some say a new earth, maybe it will be a new philosophy or new invention or something which is a permanent game-changer. Maybe it will happen this month, maybe a bit later. For now, gather your energies and focus on what you want or need to happen in your life. Take advantage of this pause, because I don’t think we’ll get another one anytime soon again.

The Disappearance of Time and Childhood

If there is an elite controlling the world then I want to know who the asshole Sith is... If there is an elite controlling the world then I want to know who the asshole Sith is…

There are conspiracy theorists, mystics, holy men and plenty of other folks who think this world is ruled by an élite and that behind this élite, there is a supernatural, otherworldly force pulling the strings. I’m not going to discuss if this is true or not, you can do the research, read the books, watch the videos and make up your own mind. Some people call them inter-dimensionals, others Reptilians, yet others, The Greys. It would seem these sorts of theories have also petered down into children’s literature.

Crap film. OK film. Kick-ass book.

I am guessing if you were attending elementary school in the early 1980’s, chances are you were forced to sit through and watch Wolfgang Petersen‘s film “The NeverEnding Story” like every other kid. By itself, it’s not a terrible film. However if you sit down to read the original book by Michael Ende, the film , in contrast truly is a spectacular piece of garbage which Ende felt it was. After the horrors of working with a Hollywood film director, Ende then promptly refused further American productions of his other books.

Way better. Way better.

I only know the story because in the early days of the internet, I had a quadriplegic email pen-pal named Jimmy, a writer from Oklahoma who was also attracted to the mystical elements of Ende’s writing. Jimmy had written to Ende in Germany shortly before Ende passed on and told Jimmy as much in his letters. What I find particularly interesting about Ende is that he comes from a Waldorf education background. Meaning, he grew up with the teachings of German mystic and metaphysician Rudolf Steiner and the whole anthroposophy movement. Ende’s work is heavily infused with these esoteric ideas.

It’s unfortunate that many of his other amazing books are not better known to English readers. He did write one children’s book called “Momo” which I think, is actually a bit of an unrecognized masterpiece and deserves some discussion.

“Momo” is essentially Michael Ende’s version of this dimensional reality hack, only his bad guys are called the The Grey Men. They surreptitiously steal people’s time, little by little and by such insidious increments, that at first people don’t notice how their days seem shorter until the day comes that their every second needs to be accounted for, everyone is living under borrowed time, leading pleasureless, hurried, frantic lives. Life becomes all about trying to be efficient, trying to accumulate wealth and in doing so, people have lost their capacity for joy, play, wonderment, and most importantly, love. That’s basically what the grey men want. Momo is the street urchin who eventually catches on to what the grey men are up to and goes about trying to defeat them.

Another writer who touches on the same themes is Madeleine L’ Engle. A prolific writer who only found success well into her 40’s, L’Engle comes from the opposite end of the spiritual spectrum than Ende. A devout Episcopal with universalist values, L’Engle was especially interested in that little-studied area where science and spirituality meet head-on. She especially explored these ideas in her Kairos series of books involving the Murray family and particularly in “A Wrinkle in Time”.

Another terrific book. Another terrific book.

Meg Murray, her friend Calvin and her brother Charles Wallace are sent on an intergalatic, inter-dimensional trip to rescue their genius father from IT. During the course of their adventures, they are helped along by 3 shape-shifting benevolent entities (who are supposed to be angels), land on the planet Camazotz, to discover a city where houses are identical, people’s lives are regulated down to the second, so much so that kids playing in the street, skip rope in unison, balls bounce in unison, and mothers come out in unison to call their children in at which point all the doors shut in unison.

Everything and everyone is identical on Camazotz (looks like any suburb nowadays if you ask me..) Everything and everyone is identical on Camazotz (looks like any suburb nowadays if you ask me..)

“Everybody knows our city has the best Central Intelligence Centre on the planet. Our production levels are the highest. Our factories never close; our machines never stop rolling. Added to this we have five poets, one musician, three artists, and six sculptors, all perfectly channeled…We are the most oriented city on the planet. There has been no trouble of any kind for centuries. All Camazotz knows our record. That is why we are the capital city of Camazotz. That is why CENTRAL Central Intelligence is located here. That is why IT makes ITs home here.”

The kids eventually carry out their mission but only after finding out that their most lethal weapon they have against IT and The Darkness is Love.

I bring up these two “fictional” books because I don’t think they are fiction anymore. Many of my friends in my age group are raising small children now. Which means any get-together is about them usually discussing day-care and pre-school options, getting them into the “right” pre-school, so that eventually they can get into the “right” elementary school and then the “right” high-school, sign up for the “right” extra-curricular school sports teams which will then lastly, get them into the “right” university. That’s basically planning a kid’s life from ages 3 to 23.

I'd be bored too. I’d be bored too.

This sort of thing makes me sick, angry and sad. It robs a child of having a light, carefree, idyllic childhood, those crucial, formative years where the imagination should run wild, and they should be free to make discoveries on their own, running after butterflies, playing in the mud, climbing trees, swimming in ponds and making snow forts where they can have epic snow-ball fights.

This is what kids should be doing. This is what kids should be doing.

 

Instead it gets them ready to enter a life of servitude, becoming an efficient cog in the machine, taking orders, thinking inside the box and becoming robots and if they don’t follow orders, they stand to lose everything.

I’ll close with a quote by Ende:
“Life holds one great but quite commonplace mystery. Though shared by each of us and known to all, seldom rates a second thought. That mystery, which most of us take for granted and never think twice about, is time. When it comes to controlling human beings, there is no better instrument than lies. Because you see, humans live by beliefs. And beliefs can be manipulated. The power to manipulate beliefs is the only thing that counts.”
