In the hope that I can annoy Florida’s science-denying governor Rick Scott by flying in the face of his denial of science itself, I’ll print the truth for all Floridians (and others) to see: sea level rise is being caused by man-made climate change, also known as global warming.

Full Moon Phase:realizations, illumination

Moon in Scorpio

Goddess of Wisdom:Chinnamasta (Goddess Who Expands The Mind)

God of Will: Ian (God of the East)

Skill: see beyond the surface; imagine the possibilities

True Alignment: sea change and seeing the change, reaching forward, determination, courage, emerging manifestation of greatness, developing talents, wise to the ways of the streets, imagination used to transcend over situations, inner composure

Catalysts for Change:sensationalism, radicalism, propaganda, fear of showing true feelings, surface appearances, aggression, arguments, hot tempers, dirty deeds and deals, discomfort, anxiety, inability to endure

Sabian Symbol for the Lunar Month/Year: “the music of the spheres”

If a Second Renaissance was descending upon humanity, those that stand opposed to humanity would naturally fight back. This is what we are witnessing in the world right now.

In the midst, messages from higher sources surround us, waiting to be noticed. An important one was delivered over the weekend on Saturday, May 2 at 5:12 pm ET/9:12 pm UT with the coronal mass ejection of an asymmetrical solar filament. The CME empowered the energetic of the Sabian symbol for 28 degrees of Libra, “a man in deep gloom, unnoticed, angels come to his aid.”

The symbol is the energy of spiritual rescue. It also informs us that slowly we will see that things are getting better. We are beginning to see the data that tells us that our thoughts are creating the field around us and that guidance is on-tap at all times. We understand, at a new level, what co-creating with Spirit means. This is a fifth-dimensional property of consciousness – a playland for the mind to transform the nature of reality.

Today, the Moon will be moving into opposition with Mars, bringing heightened instincts and emotions (that can turn aggressive) but also a flood of creativity and peace. So we will aim for the creativity and peace dynamic as we acrobatically maneuver through this Full Moon phase. A good outlet for this particular energetic is to take care of details, weed out things, and improve the aesthetic of something. This is because Mars is located at the degree of the Sabian symbol of “a well-kept public park.”

We will keep our minds well-kept with the knowledge that things are actually getting better because they are coming into a new alignment – one that supports the value, goodness, and beauty of life. (Venus makes opposition with the Galactic Center today, so the force is strongly with us on this.)

The Sabian symbol for the degree of the Sun today is “a man with a rakish silk hat, muffled against the cold, braves a storm.” It may be storming out there, but it’s the kraken – the tyrannical monster, that is falling into the cold sea. Wise owls are well-prepared to hold the line as the old system is released from its hold.

I’m happy to announce Parliament of Wise Owls Radio! Check it out at Oracle Academy:

http://oracleacademy.org/category/parliament/

Note: Oracle Report readers knew a reaction from archontically-controlled forces with a potential false flag (the one yesterday in Garland, Texas) would come when it did (the Full Moon phase) because the ripeness for it was discussed in advance. Oracle Report readers knew the international bankers would likely implement economic changes during October 2015 before the IMF announced it because it was discussed in advance. These are just two of a long line of “predictions” that have been accurate since the Report began in 2009. There is no place like the Oracle Report on the internet. It has remained free and fully-funded by the people. Your support is what makes it happen and what will keep it going. Support us! Together, we are a force of free-minded humans collaborating with divine forces to paint the Second Renaissance.

Gibbous Moon Phase: trust, magic

Moon in Virgo

Goddess of Wisdom:Chinnamasta (Goddess Who Expands The Mind)

God of Will: Ian (God of East)

Skill: spread warmth and goodwill

True Alignment:common history, connecting with old friends, nourishing the body and soul, connecting with soul families and like-minded people, healing self and helping others, bringing light to darkness, breaking illusions of division and duality, integration of many things, radical insight, spontaneity, rising above, guidance and reassurance from Spirit

Catalysts for Change:demonstrations of force and anger, pushing forward, extreme over-reactions, worries looping around the mind, psychological imbalance, refusing to see light, overworking, dragged down

Sabian Symbol for the Lunar Month/Astrological Year:“music of the spheres”

The leviathan magnetic filament that came from the East and had been building on the Sun for days erupted yesterday, producing a coronal mass ejection. The eruption streamed the energy associated with the Sabian symbol of “black and white children playing happily together.”

A blast of universal fellowship has been sent our way to help us see that division, separation, and segregation are illusions of perception. The fact that the filament’s energy was twisting (literally, producing solar “tornadoes”) and twirling like a giant whirling dervish for days and days only amplifies the powerful effect it will have on the collective of humanity.

We can align with this energetic with concerted focus on spreading warmth and goodwill to all. This would be activating a solar alignment – a wave that emanates from the heart and is in resonance with the music of the Great Sphere, the divine being embodied as our Sun.

Our fellowship with the Sun has taken on a new dimension now that we are in a new dimension. Everyone can participate by maintaining the mindset of goodwill. This becomes a skill when we can practice it is against strong odds, like those in place today with astrological aspects today that favor projection of fears, over-reactions, and coping difficulties. There is an unhelpful dose of moral righteousness peppered throughout, as well.

Today, we re-unite, re-align, re-tune, and re-bound. It’s the first Gibbous Moon phase of the new year, and Gibbous is the magical time of the month. Each of us is a song – music of the spheres – that plays in harmony with the orchestral fellowship of the cosmos. Can you feel it?

First Quarter Moon Phase: step out, take action

Moon in Virgo (“Black Moon Day” – those with the Sun or Black Moon in Virgo or Pisces undergo a process of tapping into personal power by facing fears and making friends with their shadow sides; exact conjunction of the Moon and Black Moon is Wednesday, April 29 at 7:35 am ET/11:35 am UT)

Goddess of Wisdom:Chinnamasta (Goddess Who Expands the Fields of The Mind)

God of Will: Ian (God of the East)

Skill: be acrobatic; recognize what is authentic/real through the fruit of actions, not appearance

True Alignment:corrections and repairs (especially to things that are “damaged” or were unnecessary) attention to detail, clues, things that are alternative, ultra-high levels of discernment, breaking limitations, elder people offering wisdom, something pointed out, being directed, direct and indirect action/effects that ripple love and light into the field of consciousness, multiplicity of choices or options

Catalysts for Change: causing damage, pretense, covering up, fooling through the focus on appearances, indecisive, difficulty maintaining focus (due to the number of things being highlighted and brought to attention), inflexibility when changes are presented, fear of not being good enough or qualified enough, minimizing what one has to offer the world, power grabs, projecting one’s feelings onto others

Sabian Symbol for the Lunar Month/Astrological Year:“the music of the spheres”

9:35 am ET: Due to the amount of information, today’s report is being recorded and will be posted at the top of the homepage ofwww.oraclereport.com shortly.

10:25 am ET: Audio report now posted.

REPORT TRANSCRIBED

So there was so much to talk about with today’s report and on all of the energetics that are involved, the main things to remember are that there are going to be a lot of things happening rather quickly. Things are going to be pointed out directly to us if we are paying attention, and also front-lined into the focus of consciousness of the collective of humanity. It’s on heightened alert visually right now and instinctually, because we have shifted into a new frequency; a new level of consciousness, the Fifth Dimension if you have followed my work and the audio recording for this lunar month.

So today this is an interesting set up because we are at the last day of the Black Moon disseminating the energy of the Sabian Symbol for seventeen degrees of Virgo, which is “a volcanic eruption”. And the moon will make its once a month conjunction with the black moon (the moon does this every month with the Black Moon) and today (well tomorrow morning, Wednesday Morning 7:35 AM) is the conjunction of that, and so this is the last day of the full energy of “a volcanic eruption.” And this has been in place since right after the new moon. So its expanding everything. There is an abundance of choices today and options. There are so many things going on and so many things to choose from. If you are faced with an important decision, you want to look at the fruit of someone’s actions. What they’ve produced and what their intention is. Not what the outer appearance of something is. Appearances fool today. It’s an imprint that the old system is manipulating right now to imprint energies into the field of consciousness.

It is 6 Days until the full moon actually into the full moon phase. So keep in mind it’s a Black moon day so everybody will be projecting their shadow sides, their own fears onto other people. Everybody will, not just people that have the Sun or the Black Moon in Virgo or Pisces. Those folks will have the most intensive experience of the energetic, which could be rather overwhelming and difficult to cope with. So people should engage the skills of the Wise Owl, and the coping skills of being like the Wise Owl in the tree watching what’s happening. You need to ground stabilize and equalize when the shadow energies begin to come up so so high for us to recognize. So I always recommend going outside and connecting with nature. And that’s what will help with all of that. We can release all of those fears.

Fear has no place in the 5th Dimension. It’s disempowered. What works in the 5th Dimension is love. So let’s talk about how we can use that knowledge to handle the days that are coming up and the period of time that I want to highlight in this report, the main focus and the reason for recording all of this because so much was shown today that projects onto the future. Okay so we begin the Gibbous Moon phase tomorrow Wednesday April 29th at 10:55 PM EST. And so the moon will be at that degree/phase/angle with the Sun moving us into the Gibbous Phase. And the Moon will be fresh off of this conjunction with the Black Moon early in the morning. So it’s a flooding in of shadow side energy. Which brings us into the Gibbous Phase of the Moon.

And the Sabian Symbol for the Gibbous Phase of the Moon is “a flag at half mast.” And Tomorrow the Sun will be located at the Sabian Symbol of “a red cross nurse.” And the Earth will be located at the Sabian Symbol “a fellowship supper reunites old comrades/veterans.”

I don’t like this setup that opens the Gibbous Moon Phase of these energetics, especially coming off of “the volcanic eruption” of the Black Moon and all that transpired on Earth with that. AND the energetics, the intense energetics of the Sun right now; that prominence is still dancing and will most likely is going to collapse and produce a hydroflare and a CME. And that is a region of energy that has been building for many many days throughout the First Quarter Moon phase, which is the energy of Stepping Out and taking action. And is seems to be, its looking like old systems of the Old World Order is trying to respond to the energetic. And the opportunities that are implied within a Lunar Month that is the first of the year.

The Lunar Month is equivalent to one long New Moon phase, so everything that’s inserted during that month, everything that’s tried or even tested or balloons that are being sent over. Any type of imprint or intention into the field has energetics that play out throughout the remainder of the astrological year. So we watch everything that’s happening very closely and announcements about the reserve currency last week. They’re seeding a lot of intentions into the field. Well, the Gibbous Moon phase that begins tomorrow on the 29th will contain this energetics: of the Red Cross Nurse, A flag at half mast in front of a public building, and a fellowship supper reunites old comrades/veterans. I don’t like the setup for this and the energetic and the pretense and fooling by appearance false flag.

May 5th – 7th is highlighted. There will be a Grand Trine between Pluto, the Black Moon and the Sun.But keep this in mind. We have expansive energy happening and one element contained in this is the signature of Thor’s Hammer within this dynamic. And this is the special signature within astrology that talks about will and drive. It’s also called Gods Fist. You can look it up. It’s a Quadraform.

This says that all of the intentions that are being put in place, the seeds that are being put in place this lunar cycle to be unrolled the rest of the lunar year WON’T WORK because basically Thor’s Hammer is in place to maintain alignment with what is the reality of the 5th Dimension which is manifestation of consciousness that is based within love nature and value of life. If it is contrary to that then it isn’t going to be successful. But it will be tried because there really is no alternative for the other side.

That is a quick overview of what is going on. And also I guess it is a reminder for us that we are just aware of what is happening, watching the field but we know that it is changing so that the way that things appear now, it is not the end of the story. This is a process in motion, a transition in effect. So be aware of what’s happening. We maintain our grounded connection to the planet. We always keep it real. And observe.

So I hope you can tune in when I am on Phoenix’s show tonight. And we will talk more about this and how this is playing out in the geopolitical scene So I hope you can join us then.

Thanks everyone.

(Note: I will be Phoenix’s guest tonight, Tuesday, April 28, 10 pm – midnight ET/ 7-9 pm PT on Phoenix Rising Radio on Truth Frequency Network to discuss the latest. Hope you can join us!)

First Quarter Moon Phase: step out, take action

Moon in Leo/Virgo(9:07 pm ET/01:07 am UT Tuesday)

Goddess of Wisdom:Chinnamasta (Goddess Who Expands The Mind)

God of Will: Ian (God of the East)

Skill: see what is missing or needed and direct time, energy, and resources to it

True Alignment:excitement, messages, things falling into place, opening up space for things to move, adjusting an improvising, peace, principles of the sacred feminine, reflection, ancient wisdom, putting things in a better order or organization, being able to recognize patterns of the future

Catalysts for Change: wasting energy on things/beliefs that are not important or true, mood swings, forcing things forward without taking a look at the situation, interruptions and technical difficulties, peskiness, feeling unsupported, not comprehending, things that are almost incomprehensible due to their depravity, rushing around, demanding needs be met right now, dictating

Sabian Symbol for the Lunar Month/Astrological Year:“the music of the spheres”

The descent of the Second Renaissance continues, with rivulets of clarity, inspiration, and motivation. What is streaming its way to you today?

Surges of energy from a magnetic filament that has been dancing for five days on the Sun are churning and whirling. Wild solar activity produces wild earth activity.

The effects are tectonic, in many ways. The ground shakes as it did in Nepal over the weekend. Napping volcanoes like Calbuco in Chile are spewing awake.

The effects are tectonic on us, too. Blockages (miasms) in the body are responding to the new energetics (the field of consciousness that is the fifth dimension) causing system/cell failures. Mental imbalance is causing people to “lose it” a little or a lot.

All of this is happening rapidly.

To maintain equilibrium, wise owls adapt within the energetics. One of the ways to do this is to open up to what is falling into your mind and falling in front of your path. In the fifth dimension of consciousness, the information field or source field is full and fertile and ripe and ready for us to extract and insert whatever we need and want. The adaptation (or mutation) that we are developing comes from the gradual recognition that the world around us – the dreaming of Gaia Sophia – is responding to us.

You can start testing this for yourself. Send out a mental request and see what comes back.

In the old world, today’s energetic of the Sabian symbol for the degree of the position of the Sun, “a sleigh without snow,” would have meant that it was hard to get things going – not enough fuel being available. In the new world, we jump above that conundrum by recognizing that a sleigh can be powered by things other than snow.

We can also imagine a snowstorm (of creativity?) directed in a way that brings energy/fuel to rectify the situation. The energetics don’t stop us; we can morph them so that they are more functional. In the new world, we say snow is missing and needed, so we tap the information field around us to “create” what’s missing. Fuel is missing from the situation, so we imagine it to create it. We can whip up a snowstorm in consciousness to get things moving forward. The act of doing this automatically prompts the mind to think about how the situation can be resolved because powerful mental energy is being directed toward it. Energy goes where attention flows. Then it becomes reflected in the “real world.”

Our minds are being opened and expanded in concrete ways that we’ve never experienced. Information, knowledge, guidance, opportunity, and wisdom are streaming around us, ready for us to tap into it. It’s a playful experience, best tuned into by releasing the need to control and embracing the real science of co-creation with Spirit. See what’s missing in situations and then imagine what would fix it. What is the universe streaming your way?

(Note: I will be Phoenix’s guest tomorrow, Tuesday, April 28 at 10 pm – midnight ET/ 7-9 pm PT on Phoenix Rising Radio to discuss the latest. Hope you can join us!)
