NorthPoint Astrology Journal Your Guide to Planetary Energies for May 27 to June 2, 2013 By Pam Younghans

Today’s photo: Auroras on May 18 over Unity Pond in Unity, Maine(photo by Mike Taylor, posted on SpaceWeather.com)

MUCH HAS BEEN cleared away in recent days. Through their square aspect last week, Pluto and Uranus have been doing a lot of work with us.

Pluto is a master at stripping off many layers of how we have learned to define ourselves, taking us down to the basic foundation of who we are. Once in the presence of that Essential Self, we encouraged to rebuild — but in new ways, as who we are and what we want to create has been changed.

And, Uranus is the master of surprise — the unexpected event that shocks us at first, but eventually liberates us to embrace some new experience or way of life. Once we catch our breath (and this can take some time), we can start to imagine how to rebuild our lives, even more authentically than before.

THIS WEEK is about adapting to the changes, trying to wrap our brains around the new reality that has brazenly taken over our familiar and comfortable landscape, and starting to brainstorm the possibilities from here. Most likely, the actual reconstruction process is a ways off, after we’ve had some time to think through what’s possible and where we want to go next.

To help us in this regard, we have an alignment between three planets — Jupiter, Venus and Mercury — in Gemini on Monday and Tuesday. Gemini is the sign of the Idea Generator, the Communicator, and the Networker. This alignment supports our talking things over and coming up with ideas. Gemini is also a mutable sign, which will help us be more flexible in our thinking and open to new perspectives.

WHILE THESE THREE planets are in alignment, Uranus forms a quintile aspect with the group — and while Uranus almost always involves some surprises, with a quintile, there is also opportunity.

Astrologer Bil Tierney writes in his book Dynamics of Aspect Analysis that a quintile has “occult, transcendent undertones,” and “is considered to symbolize an aspirant’s creative soul alignment with the Will of the Cosmos.” He also explains:

“The quintile enables one to construct (mental) form in an ideal manner that most perfectly reflects the archetypal purpose of that form… To bring the promise of the quintile into productive use could suggest that the individual first understand and accept that mind and matter are essentially one and the same.”

THIS QUINTILE between Uranus and Jupiter-Venus-Mercury provides us with the opportunity — and challenge — to rise above the mind’s natural perception of recent events, and to find new ways to think about what has occurred.

We have the ability to harness the creative power of our minds and to find positive possibilities in the midst of what appears to be destruction. This is a conscious exercise that is not necessarily easy, but it should help us both accept what has occurred and align more fully with “the Will of the Cosmos” as we go forward from here.

THE REST of the planetary interactions are grouped at the end of the week. Three planets change signs — Mercury and Venus enter Cancer, and Mars goes into Gemini — which will help us take our next steps forward.

On Saturday, the Sun forms aspects to both Pluto and Uranus, bringing more of the consequences of the recent changes into our awareness. Since the Uranus-Sun aspect is an opportunistic sextile, we are assisted in seeing new potentials, if we choose. And, although the Pluto-Sun aspect requires some adjustment, if we are willing to think outside the box and let go of preconceptions about what’s possible, this influence can also help us move past places where we’ve been feeling blocked.

OUR UPCOMING TELECLASS is just a couple of weeks away! I’m getting excited, and hope you are, too. Here’s the information about the class again, if you’re considering participating:

TELECLASS THURSDAY, JUNE 13
Our Journey of Transformation Continues

How planetary energies will support and
challenge us in the rest of 2013

with Astrologer Pam Younghans
and Wellness Educator Elsie Kerns

Thursday, June 13
4 to 5:30pm PDT (7 to 8:30pm EDT)

LIFE IS MOVING quite rapidly these days — it seems new challenges arise almost daily, but thankfully, solutions are not far behind. Like adept surfers, we are learning not to attach to either the highs or the lows, but to maintain our center amidst the waves.

As we move into the last six months of 2013, the planets will both support and challenge us, with the goal of helping us become the empowered and liberated beings we were born to be. During the class, we’ll talk about:

  • a supportive Grand Water Trine in mid-July
  • a challenging T-square with Pluto, Uranus, Jupiter and Mars in late July-early August
  • the always-important Libra Equinox in September
  • eclipses in October and November
  • the final 2013 Pluto-Uranus square in November
  • and some very interesting configurations involving Pluto, Uranus, Mercury, Mars and the Sun as we finish the calendar year

As you can see, there’s a lot going on!

Join us for this 90-minute teleclass, where we’ll walk month-by-month through the rest of 2013. We’ll talk about when the supportive and challenging energies are the strongest, discuss possible manifestations, and share perspectives on the higher purpose of it all.

We hope you will join us!

‘Victory’: Court Rules Notorious Sheriff Violated Constitution | Common Dreams

Thank you for finding and sharing this Laura! I literally cheered out loud when I read the intro to this;-) I have been waiting so long to see a US court re-affirm that my country has evolved beyond the racism and genocidal tendencies upon which it was founded. This guy is a total menace to society, and it is a beautiful, life affirming moment to see the courts call him to task for acting like an American Nazi.

The manuscript of survival – part 315 by Aisha North

The days have become more and more intense in so many ways, as you see the light shining through not only yourself, but also those around you. In addition, the nighttime will also bring much information. And although much of this information is in many ways still hidden from you, it is already having quite a profound effect on you all.

Let us explain. As always, whenever we refer to information, it is not necessarily in the manner that you refer to information. In other words, it may not be such that is given in words or clear pictures and that leaves you feeling wiser and more on to what is going on. Not because you are in any way lacking of abilities to comprehend what all of this information is about, but because this is a form of communication that talks to all levels of your being. And as such, at least for now, you are not able to consciously connect with all of these levels of communication. And so, you will in many ways feel as if you are still left out in the dark as it were, and that you have no, or a only a small fraction, of clarity into what is truly being exchanged here. Again, that is only because you have not been able to access these deep seated channels of information that is fairly teeming with activity, and now, that activity has been amped up even further. So many of you may have noticed this already, either in the form of thoughts or ideas that seemingly surfaces at the most unexpected times and in the most unexpected of circumstances, or by the fact that your brain seems almost incapable of focusing on any thing at any given moment.

And the explanation for both of these ocurrences are one and the same. For now, the amount of information that is pouring into each and every one of you has increased to a veritable avalanche, and so, some of it will indeed be made public as it were by your increased ability to pick up on these signals that are being beamed into you. While on the other hand, the easiest of tasks seem impossible to even contemplate because you feel as if deeply fatigued in the very center of your every day being.

In other words, mundane tasks may seem to be insurmountable at times, while you during this same period of mental fog may get sudden and profound insights that will make you literally sit up in your chair, or perhaps we should say bed, for many of these instances occur during the nighttime. And we are also aware that another not so fortunate outcome for many of you will also be the seeming inability to get a good nights sleep. You will toss and turn, but no matter how hard you try, it is as if the lights within your head simply refuse to dim down. This inability to detach and turn off everything that is going on within may leave you feel more than a little bit exhausted, because there seems to be an almost ceaseless activity going on in your head. It is as if you can literally feel the humming and buzzing, like a beehive within your brain. And indeed, that can in many ways be a perfect picture of it all, because all of your neural passages have been turned into a veritable beehive of activity, with signals going to and from new passages and connections being put together at the speed of light. And this in turn, is accompanied by some other, and at times rather confusing signals too, in the form of sound or even vibrations that will make it even harder to fall asleep.

And so, you are all super charged in that part of your being that is the control center, and so, much of the rest of the body will feel the oucome in all sorts of ways as this frenzy of activity starts to interfere with other, more mundane processes that is part of your daily rutines. But we do hasten to add that although irksome, they are in no way harmful, merely annoying. And the upside is so beneficial, we think you will all have it in you to find a way to accept these small and large quirks and quakes that accompany all of these injections of information. For what you gain from all of this frenzy of activity far, far outweighs any irritations it will leave in its wake. And so we say just stay the course, and know that what you are taking part in now, is such a monumental shift for all of humanity, and it is all happening within each and every one of you. It cannot be likened to anything that has happend before, as this upgrading and information is on a level that no physical being has ever been subjected to before. That in itself can be enough to set off the alarm bells in many a timid soul, but again we do assure you all that the levels of supervision and careful adjustments are so presise, there is no harm that will befall any of you. For you are here to do a task that will change the outcome for this whole planet. You are each and every one of you a vital part of this monumental operation, and so we would not risk this by doing something that may set you back even a fraction.

So again we say keep breathing and stay centered, and even if your mind and indeed your physical body may seem to fluctuate wildly at times so that you may feel on top of the world for one moment and then down in the basement the next, you are being lifted higher and higher every second of the day. And know also that even if you become more than frustrated by the seeming lack of access to any or all of the information that you are actually being a party to even as we speak, it will come to you in every glorious detail, when the time is right. And yes, we do know that this will elicit more than one frustrated groan, for we do know your eagernss to literally plunge into the thick of it. But again, timing is everything here, and this information is literally useless unless it is being used in the right context and within a timeframe that will ensure its feasability.

So know that all is well, and even if you feel more like horses still caged up behind the starting gates at times, know that this race to the finishing line is already taking place, yes, at the speed of light. We will leave it at that for the moment and invite you all to try to tune into some of that information stream you already have within. For not all of it is closed to view, and the tidbits you can come across there will certainly help to assuage your voracious appetite, at least for a little while.
