This incredible video is about 8-1/2 minutes, but well worth watching.  The makers of the video have created a beautifully accessible learning tool for education about the energy grid and the bioelectrical changes that are occurring within human beings.  Astrologically, this process is connected to the planet Uranus which rules electromagnetic energy and the transmission of information across dimensional fields, and the planet Neptune which rules the ability of the human being to connect directly to the divinity in an experience of transcendence.

The mutual reception of Uranus in Pisces (ruled by Neptune) and Neptune in Aquarius (ruled by Uranus) that followed the Uranus/Neptune conjunction in 1993 has enhanced and accelerated this process, and it has not been an easy one for some people.  When Chiron entered Aquarius in 2003 this process became more painful and the use of psychoactive drugs has increased exponentially since that time.  I feel that as our understanding of our experience expands and deepens, the pathways to transformation will become more evident.

The makers of this video has developed a technique to assist with this process.  There are many different modalities that assist with the expansion and transformation occurring now, and much can be done with our own intention and our inner guides and teachers.   Your inner guidance will let you know whether a particular modality will be beneficial – Use your intuition to discover the routes that are best for you.

Sunday Inspiration: Randy Pausch

Randy Pausch died on Friday after a two-year battle with pancreatic cancer. He skyrocketed to fame after he delivered “The Last Lecture” to a standing-room-only crowd at Carnegie Mellon Institute in Pittsburgh. The lecture, an inspiring film on life’s lessons, was posted on YouTube and soon watched by millions of people who drew inspiration from the wisdom in Randy’s words about living your life to the fullest.

Randy Pausch was born as the Sun just entered the sign of Scorpio, the sign of darkness and intense experiences of life. Mercury in his chart was also in Scorpio, which shows that his intellectual capacity (Mercury) was colored by the Scorpionic need to probe under every rock and examine closely the underlying facets of life that are missed by those who live closer to the surface. Randy also had a strong Sagittarius element with the Moon, Venus and Jupiter all in Sagittarius which craves a lighter, more buoyant and positive experience of life. But his Moon was squared by Pluto, ruler of Scorpio and god of the underworld, which suggests that for Randy the spectre of death and darkness was always a shadow of the lightness that he craved (Moon) in his heart.

This combination of darkness and light can be a difficult one, and the two must be synthesized in the personality in order to function properly. It is more common for the darkness and light aspects to battle within the psyche, creating distress and potential physical problems. It is exactly this […]

Sunday Inspiration: Awakening the Heart

Venus and Mercury are conjunct right now in Gemini, along with the Sun, and the power of Venus to soften the mind (Mercury) is illuminated by the Sun and offers an opportunity to open the doors to the wisdom of the heart. A sextile from both planets to Mars today helps to activate this opening if we choose to do so. This is a perfect day for the pursuit of bodhichitta, the spirit of awakening in which the Self becomes empty and spacious and compassion fills the heart.

Chiron forms a trine to the Gemini planetary lineup and can assist in this process by opening the chinks in the armor that we build around the places within us that are wounded and fearful. Pema Chodron’s tale provides a beautiful picture for this process (from her book The Places that Scare You:

Pema Chodron

“When we were digging the foundation for the retreat center at Gampo Abbey, we hit bedrock, and a small crack appeared. A minute later water was dripping out. An hour later, the flow was stronger and the crack was wider.

Finding the basic goodness of bodhichitta is like that-tapping into a spring of living water that has been temporarily encased in solid rock. When we touch the center of sorrow, when we sit with discomfort without trying to fix it, when we stay present to the pain of disapproval or betrayal and let it soften us, these are the times that we connect with bodhichitta.

Tapping into that shaky and tender place has a transformative effect. Being in this place may feel uncertain […]

Sunday Inspiration for stillness

When we look around we can see a lot of things to worry about. But deep within is a silent stillness that carries us back to our Selves and transcends all worry and doubt.

The wind is the breath of heaven and earth.

Into every corner it unfolds and reaches;
Without choosing between high or low,
Exalted or humble, it touches everywhere.
