Esoteric websites to be banned along with porn in the UK

censor-this from DavidIcke.com

I think we can categorize this under the square of Uranus to Pluto:  Obsessive (Pluto) government practices (Capricorn) cracking down (square) the technological rights (Uranus) of individuals to feed their own minds (Aries).

From the Huffington Post:

The United Kingdom’s new internet filters promise to block much more than just pornography, according to a report by the digital advocacy organization Open Rights Group.

Last week, Prime Minister David Cameron announced online porn would soon become automatically blocked in order to “protect children and their innocence.” The filters will be implemented by the UK’s major internet service providers, which encompass 95% of British web users.

Based on conversations with several ISPs, Open Rights Group says the new “parental controls” will reach far beyond pornography. By default, the controls will block access to “violent material,” “extremist and terrorist related content,” “anorexia and eating disorder websites,” and “suicide related websites.”

In addition, the new settings will censor websites that mention alcohol or smoking. The filter will even block “web forums” and “esoteric material,” though Open Rights Group does not specify what these categories would include.

In the United States pornography (NOT including, of course, child pornography) is considered a first amendment right and pornography in any case is subject to a wide range of interpretation.  Back in Queen Victoria’s day a bare ankle was considered pornographic and piano legs were discreetly covered up in order to avoid embarrassment.

Including “esoteric material” opens up a whole other question – is the British government afraid of the masses becoming educated in esoteric practices that for thousands of years been the exclusive province of a small minority?  This has been called by some a “War on Consciousness” and perhaps can be […]

Creating Intention: An Act of Prayer

prayerThe efficacy of prayer has been proven recently in the scientific arena. Dr. Larry Dossey is well-known for his studies demonstrating that prayer has a healing effect even when performed from a distance and without the patient knowing that prayer is occurring. The National Institute for Health Care Research found that out of 158 professional studies, 75% demonstrated that a religious commitment translated into benefits in psychological well-being, overall survival rates, or quality of life for everyone from cancer patients to drug abusers. Research is now being conducted at major universities all over the country to determine the connection between prayer and healing. Is this the intervention of a divine entity? Or is it that when we create an intention we focus our mind to align with the divine within ourselves, thereby harnessing an enormous creative force of manifestation?

It is tempting to relinquish our personal power to the will of the divine and give up our own will in the name of humility. Often there is a deep spiritual experience that results from sublimating one’s personal desires; however, a deep transformational empowerment can result from creating strong intentions for one’s life experiences that brings us closer to fulfilling our soul’s purpose and to becoming the amazing beings that we truly are. In order to do so, it is crucial to honor the divine within ourselves that deserves to live a beautiful and abundant life.

Often we may find ourselves stuck in patterns of negative thought that prevent us from realizing most fully the power of our creative intention. Perhaps we inherited these thought patterns and scripts from our families. Perhaps difficult life experiences have made it difficult for us to believe in our own soul’s beauty […]

Grand Sextile/Star of David, July 29 2013

Grand Sextile 2013Image stolen from Conscious Cool Chic. 

I have been writing about the Grand Trine in Water that is in effect for much of this year, and at the end of the month a Grand Trine in Earth will intersect with the Water Trine and form a Star of David, or Grand Trine.

Similarity to Harmonic Concordance

The Harmonic Concordance that occurred on November 8, 2003 was considered a portal to awakened consciousness.  The Harmonic Concordance featured the same combination of planetary alignments as the July 29th Grand Sextile:

  • Two interlocking grand trines (120 degree angles) in water and earth signs.
  • Two oppositions (180 degree angle).
  • A hexagon of sextiles (60 degree angles) forming a Grand Sextile.
  • Two “T-square” formations (an opposition where both planets are square (90 degrees) to another).

The Harmonic Concordance occurred at a total eclipse of the Moon which we don’t see here, but otherwise they are similar patterns.

They are also similar to a configuration that could be the actual Star of Bethehem: a heliocentric alignment of planets forming a Star of David in the year 5 bce.  Jesus of course was said to be born under the Star of Bethlehem and his legend involves him being a direct descendant of David.

The Symbolism of the Star of David or Solomon’s Seal

The Star of David (also called the Seal of Solomon) has been an esoteric symbol for thousands of years.  In India it was a tantric symbol called the “Satkana Yantra” and represented complete balance between Shiva and Shakti, the divine masculine and divine feminine.  Alain Danielou, in the book “The Gods of India,” writes:  “The two complimentary principles, the […]

Sunday inspiration: Shift happens

Uranus square Pluto 2011-2015

 

[There is] the arising of something new in humanity. I sometimes call it the unconditioned consciousness. But it is also a field of stillness, where you see the torn roots of the human mind. Once it emerges, it’s a process that cannot be reversed. It emerges more and more fully, and you become less and less identified with the structure of thought. And then thought is no longer dysfunctional. It is actually beautiful. It can be used for helpful purposes. It’s wonderful—you are no longer looking for an identity in the structure of thought because now you know that who you are is deeper. You are the very awareness prior to thought. You are the stillness that is deeper than thought, much vaster than thought. We call it “stillness” but it’s just a word. We’ve reduced it to something. It’s more than that. It’s consciousness itself, unconditioned. Which is the essence of each human being. It’s that when you meet anybody in a state of open, aware attention, without labeling them mentally or judging them, then that you are already operating as a current or conscious awareness between human beings.

That [will] dramatically change human relationships. When aware presence operates between human beings, they are no longer dominated by mind structures. On a deepest level, that is also love. That is the only dimension from where love can come into this world.

Eckhart Tolle, interview

We are in the transition from the Age of Pisces to the Age of Aquarius, and this ongoing planetary aspect between Uranus and Pluto is facilitating that process.  As the old ways are destroyed (Pluto in Capricorn) a new and radically different way of looking […]

Musings on planetary discovery and human consciousness

While there is relatively little planetary action in the sky I thought I would take a moment to share some thoughts on this topic which is of great interest to me. For several thousand years, astrologers of all nations and cultures used only the visible planets and luminaries to cast horoscopes and predict the future.  Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter and Saturn – these were the basic elements of the horoscope (remember, a horoscope is the actual map of the sky at a given moment, not the daily forecasts you read in the newspaper). The ancient Greeks and Romans used a series of “lots” to add more detail to the charts, and after the fall of the Roman Empire when knowledge moved eastward, Arab astrologers continued their use and these chart factors became known as  the “Arabic parts.”  There are close to 100 of these “parts,” or “lots” and the most commonly one used today is the “Part of Fortune.”  These points are derived from a mathematical calculation between three chart points, often including the ascendant.  They are predictive in nature and reinforces the idea that the birthchart describes the fate of the individual. Astrology, of course, was used primarily to determine one’s fate and predict the future.  The belief that the human experience was an evolving process and that the individual held the key to his or her own transformation would have been a completely foreign concept. In modern astrology, the traditional planets described above represent aspects of the personality.  I will discuss my views on the Sun and Moon  and the relationship to the soul in another article, but for now let’s think of the Sun as being the conscious mind and the Moon […]
