Meant to write about this sooner but the events that have transpired since then have been too shocking in frequency that it caused me to be a bit overwhelmed. Anyhow, these events only serve to more strongly support my analysis earlier.
So Dec 21, 2012 passed and we are still here. The world didn’t end. But something big happened and will continue to escalate during what looks like a very turbulent next few years.
Extremely significant cosmic happenings which trace these energies playing out in the world today have to do with some real heavyweight planets forming very stressful aspects that will repeat themes from the past. The main attraction will be the ongoing Pluto square Uranus transits which form exact squares a whopping 7 times from June 2012 well into March 2015. The last series of squares was between 1932 and 1934. This was a stressful time worldwide that fueled the desperation that led to WW2 and was the time of the Great Depression in the United States after the Stock market crash of 1929. We see this theme replayed as it is finally completely evident to everyone that the financial system is collapsing right beneath our feet.
Another important happening is Pluto in Capricorn. This is most significant for America which was born towards the end of the last Pluto transit through Capricorn. At the time of the Revolution the planet Uranus was in Gemini on the Royal Star Aldebaran, the Watcher of the East representing Archangel Michael. Aldebaran is the fiery eye of the bull and is a warrior star. The significance of Pluto returning to the place it was during Americas difficult birth is extremely important as it is a completion of a long cycle. Pluto is the planet of death and rebirth as well as power and control. Pluto resonates with the occult symbol of the mythical Phoenix. A brilliant fiery bird that lives a long time and then consumes itself in flames only to be reborn anew from the ashes. Just like America was born out of the ashes of the British Empire so it will do so again in a new way. As we see America burning down its house so to speak we see the rebirth of the Patriot movement, people are talking about freedom again and defending our nation against the increasingly tyrannical government.
The two heavyweights and their characteristics in the signs:
Pluto in Capricorn: Power and the misuse of power, secrecy, control and transformation in the establishment, corporations, banking, gov’t, etc
Uranus in Aries: The Awakener and erratic change embodied by the urge for freedom by the pioneers, the Patriots, rebels, innovators, etc
Now looking at the current state of affairs it appears we are going to be reenacting two very turbulent times in histroy at once! The American Revolution and the Great Depression. Ouch!
If all this is not enough, we also have a Super Yod that was fully actualized on Dec 21, 2012. A Yod is known as the “Finger of God” and points to the crux of a very tricky situation, a fork in the road, a time to make very important decisions fast. You couldn’t ignore it if you tried as it’s a karmic duty that’s sorta forced upon you. The Yod is formed when two planets in sextile(a mutual aspect) are quincunx(inconjunct) a third that stands opposite the middle serving as a sharpened point of interest to be decided, tackled, debated, whatever it is it must be done at once!
This Super Yod is formed between Pluto and Saturn pointing that cosmic finger straight at Jupiter. So what does this mean for us?
Having already covered Pluto in Capricorn, we have its mutual ally here as Saturn in Scorpio. The two planets have swapped and are in each others houses. Saturn in Scorpio is a bit dark.. Repressingly so. Saturn is in charge of all the hard and difficult lessons in life. A wet blanket of sorts. It limits, impoverishes but also creates structure through discipline and organization. In Scorpio it deals with the heaviest of issues. Fear, possessiveness, secrecy and digging straight into the deepest darkest insecurities.
Well, with that duo established we now have the jovial Jupiter enter the scene and become the center of attraction. Biggie Jupiter is the Zeus of the planets and rules expansion, big ideas and pretty much makes a big deal out of everything by showing up. What makes this a SUPER Yod is a few factors. First the planets involved are all giants and the red giant Jupiter in the middle of it is sitting on the Royal star Aldebaran with Lilith at his side. Yowza! Lilith is a dark lady, she’s an outsider, a bad gal and the one blamed for all kinds of crimes and misdemeanors. Jupiter expands everything he touches so in Gemini that means mass media. We’re hearing a lot of news about what? Lilith with Jupiter on the warrior star Alderaban sure looks the current gun issue that’s all over the news lately. We are hearing a whole lot of talk about banning guns in the media due to the increasing frequency of a string of highly suspicious tragedies.
Now the Sabian symbol for the Dec 21, 2012 Super Yod is most interesting. Jupiter is at 9º Gemini: A quiver filled with arrows. BULLSEYE!!!
Also, Venus is exactly conjunct the minor asteroid named America and is opposite Jupiter in this fiasco. The Sabian symbol for Venus here is 7º Sagittarius: Cupid knocking at the door of a human heart. So the American people will have their heart all tied up in this as Venus(ruling values) in Sagittarius(the archer, expressing ideas) is shooting straight up to Jupiter. Mercury is in on the talk close by at 15 degrees Sagittarius directly opposite Vesta(focus, commitment) so once again this gun issue is the big focus of debate.
Whew! All this drama in the sky and there’s still more oh so much more to come.. I didn’t go into depth on the double yod that followed up this one and culminated on the full moon this March yet so check back as I will be writing more on the upcoming alignments.
Yayy!! My submission won Chris Lilley’s Valentine’s Day competition with most likes. Now, where’s my gaystyle sippy cup???
This is the year of the snake. So here’s Salma Hayek dancing with one. It’s great. She gets her toes sucked by Tarantino too.
And if you’re into astrology, my friends at darkstar do a great job at outlining this new years new moon here
Here’s an astrochart I made. I’ve thrown in some extra lil fun asteroids for shading:
The brilliant visionary inventor Nikola Tesla was featured on Family Guy this Sunday April 17th. The piece is 17 minutes into the episode.
“Mr. Edison, we’re going to use your invention to power the world. And Mr. Tesla, we’re going to use yours in the background of Frankenstein movies.“
When I was a little girl growing up in Belarus, I wanted to be an astronaut just like my hero Yuri Gagarin. I wondered what awaited us out in space and wanted to travel to the black hole of the milky way and emerge out into some new universe. Today is the Anniversary his flight into space, making him the first man out there in the unknown. I don’t know what he expected to find but what he didn’t find was God up there, just our beautiful lonely blue planet. On a later mission from which he never returned, I always imagined he went somewhere far far away and finally found what he was looking for…
So I went so the screening of Zeitgeist: Moving Forward at the Tribeca Film Center last week. The film was lengthy and focused largely on human conditioning and the urgent need to transition into a resource based economy in order to save our planet from unsustainable growth and consumption of resources.
It also featured the Venus Project founded by the great Jacque Fresco. After the screening, Peter Joseph was there for the Q&A. One of the things he said that stayed with me was his proposition to create our own currency, an idea I’ve been musing on for a while. He called it the “Z Bank”, with credits to appear on an internet database that can be traded for services by members.
The movement ( 310000+ members) is steadily building towards critical mass which is right on the horizon. What’s interesting is that the mainstream media is now using the recent Arizona shooting to demonize this movement along with other figures who are proposing change, all because the suspect, Jared Lee Loughner was obsessed with creating a new currency. Their use of the ad hominem tactic is juvenile as most rational people are aware that something needs to change in reagards to the collapsing economy that the gov’t is clearly not addressing correctly.
The film is now officially available online worldwide. View it here:

In the abyss, at the bottom of a deep dark well, the stars shine brighter than ever and can be seen even during the day. When all seems lost and only the darkness surrounds us do we then have the eyes to see the heavens above in all their subtlety. One must wait out this time in quiet meditation until the danger is past. The I Ching has a great hexagram which I feel correlates well with this Dark Night of the Soul, Hexagram 55:
The shadows close in. The polestar can be seen at noonday. Going forward now invites mistrust and hate. But sincere devotion brings good fortune.
“From the depths of a mine shaft or a well, where the scattered light of the sun has been dissipated, it is possible to see the stars even at midday. The same phenomenon is visible during an eclipse. When the machinations of a powerful party obscure the brilliance of the ruler, it is a time for the wise man to give up any ideas of energetic advance. This would only earn him mistrust and envy. Nevertheless he should maintain his loyalties and his principals. In the end all will be well.”
I am currently reading a wonderful surrealist novel called The Wind-Up Bird Chronicle by Haruki Murakami whose theme synchronizes perfectly with this idea. Perhaps the author is familiar with the Book of Changes himself. The hero of the novel, a recently unemployed and zen 30-something young man whose wife ran off, finds himself staring into the abyss, numbed and stuck in a stagnant life situation where he is completely floating without direction. As his life falls apart, he climbs down into a dried up abandoned well by his home and spends a couple of days down at the bottom in the darkness. A diviner once told him,” When you’re supposed to go down, find the deepest well and go down to the bottom”. He emerges after passing through the veil between the two worlds, our world and the Dreamtime world, a new entity now marked by his rite of passage.
This is a test and those who seek illumination must go through it completely alone. The 8–Circuit Model of Consciousness proposed by Timothy Leary is a system outlining the evolution of human consciousness based on the development of eight different neurological circuits (each one a unique state of consciousness) the last four of which are recent developments. Most of humanity is operating on the fourth circuit while only a few have passed the threshold into the second half of the higher circuits.
- The first Four are:
- The Bio-survival Circuit
- The Emotional-Territorial Circuit
- The Dextro-Symbolic Circuit
- The Ethical-Social Circuit
- The more recent developments:
- The Neurosomatic circuit.
- The Metaprogramming circuit
- The Neuro-genetic Circuit
- The Non-local Circuit
The Dark Night of the Soul is the midway point of no return. This is the test. If one passes through to the other side then one can further develop into the metaprogramming circuit(think of it as having access codes and being the computer programmer of your own brain). Save a few lucky individuals who are able to jump straight into the fifth circuit of neurosomatic bliss, most have to deal with the pain of passing through this wall. Those who don’t successfully make it through can find themselves stuck in anguishing limbo, wandering in the in-between world without a guide. Suicide is common at this point, which I reckon is what happened to the brilliant Vincent Van Gogh.
If you are currently going through this ordeal, remember that you are not alone, although it feels that way to you now. What seems like death to the the caterpillar inside the dark cocoon, is the dawn before the birth of a butterfly. Remember this. Wishing you all luck on this difficult journey and I hope to see you on the other side!
