New Moon Phase: intend, begin, renew, set a wish or intention

Moon: Sagittarius

Diamond Sky Dakinis Rule This Lunar Month, Not The Mahavidyas

AUDIO UPDATE 11/24/2013https://www.freeconferencing.com/playback.html?cid=conferences/-17-65-67-17-65-67116-17-65-67281390-17-65-6736-17-65-67-52-1022272250.mp3&e=1640926800000&cn=94-43-28-63

This month brings the unfoldment of ideas, projects, and dreams. It is a process that begins during the New Moon phase and continues to the last day of the Third Quarter phase. The unfoldment occurs in our individual lives and throughout the collective of humanity.
The primary thing that is unfolding this month is the unification of the feminine and masculine energies within each of us. If the masculine side has been dominant, the feminine side will rise to balance. In turn, if the feminine side has been dominant, the masculine side will rise to balance. From this balanced, centered state, we begin thinking and operating in an entirely new way.

There is a foreign, alien quality to this because it is not how we are accustomed to feeling. An energetic recalibration is occurring to bring repair and correction to our lives and our world. We are pulling back with some things and pulling forward with other things. In some ways we are getting “softer” and in other ways we are getting “harder.”

While this rebalancing or recalibration is happening, we maintain proper equilibrium by “grounding” ourselves with the planet, Gaia-Sophia, the divine being embodied as the Earth. This is the way we maintain good mental stability and clarity as things shift and shuffle. Sanity lies beneath our feet, before our eyes, in earshot, and at the touch of a fingertip. Connecting with nature via our senses keeps us strong and healthy.

Groundedness is very important today. Approaching things from a strong, fortified internal position is best. Take time to consider before taking action. Because we are in the time of year that is like a long Disseminating Moon phase, there is a lot of information out there. There is an abundance of sharing and exchanging of ideas, opinions, and perspecitves. Sometimes we need to retreat inside to process the information we are taking in and sort through our feelings about it. Control how much information you want to process; don’t let the information take control of you because that causes all kinds of headaches.

The rebalancing and recalibrating causes a degree of purity to emerge. The loftiest, grandest “ideals” are manifesting. Dare to follow the highest octave in all things and watch what happens.

The manuscript of survival – part 375

Thank you Aisha!

aisha north

As you have already noticed, the incoming energies that accompanied last Sunday’s momentous Gathering has perceptibly picked up speed, and rightly so. For as you all managed to jettison so much of the old dross you were carrying, you left a gaping hole within ready to be filled with light in a very different way than before, and as such, it is as if there is an ever stronger current flooding into you all. Again, this is a process that will be very individual, so you will all need to feel into this in order to establish just what is happening within you. And we do hasten to add that even if you yourself do not feel much difference at the moment, know that you too are encompassed by this overwhelming turn of events. For you are no longer the persons you used to be just a few days ago…

Stop the Secret Trade Deal: the Monsanto Protection Act on Steroids! | Food Democracy Now


If you thought the Monsanto Protection Act was bad, the secret trade deal called the TPP is a global nightmare. Right now more than 600 corporate lobbyists, including Monsanto, are leading secret trade agreements, known as the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP), being negotiated behind closed doors like this spring when the Monsanto Protection Act was passed.
Just as we are on the verge of winning GMO labeling in the US, these secret negotiations could eliminate the ability of countries around the world to label GMOs or impose common sense restrictions on the sale of toxic chemicals, genetically engineered seed and food in their countries if Monsanto and other biotech companies get their way. They could also make it illegal to label GMOs in the U.S., placing the decision in the hands of corporate lobbyists and Monsanto GMO stooges.

Demand an end to secret trade deals, stop the fast track of the TPP. Stand with Food Democracy Now! – don’t let corporations pass the Global Monsanto Protection Act!

A copy of your letter of support will be delivered to President Obama, your Members of Congress and U.S. Trade Representative Michael Froman:

Dear President Obama, members of Congress and U.S. Trade Representative Froman,

The rules of democracy should not be rewritten behind closed doors!

I’m alarmed by the effort to Fast Track the secret trade agreement, the TPP, through Congress, which not only undermines Congress’ constitutional authority over trade, but will allow corporate lobbyists to erode our basic democratic rights without a proper public debate.

Please make these negotiations public and allow participation in an open and transparent manner.

I ask that you put an end to the secrecy behind these trade agreement negotiations.

Sincerely,

[Your Name]

Truthout Daily Digest December 2, 2013

I want to highlight this article as I am so glad to finally see more reporting on this issue which I post about regularly. To most people, indigenous resistance to corporate government supported invasion and destruction is minor. To most it doesn’t even make their “radar” of news but this issue like banking scandals is at the root of what is WRONG with our current international system.

Until we stop these blatant abuses of trust, of humanity and the Earth we will continue to experience deterioration of the social contract, living standards, health, environmental quality and crime.

The more people expose these abuses and stand up to the thugs in power promoting them, the sooner we will see real fundamental change for the better in our world.

Everything Is Rigged: The Biggest Price-Fixing Scandal Ever Matt Taibbi

Apologies if I already posted this when it was new, but in case anyone missed it the news of our entire international financial system being rigged is certainly worth knowing.

Everything Is Rigged: The Biggest Price-Fixing Scandal Ever

The Illuminati were amateurs. The second huge financial scandal of the year
reveals the real international conspiracy: There’s no price the big banks
can’t fix

By Matt Taibbi
April 25, 2013 1:00 PM ET

Conspiracy theorists of the world, believers in the hidden hands of the
Rothschilds and the Masons and the Illuminati, we skeptics owe you an
apology. You were right. The players may be a little different, but your
basic premise is correct: The world is a rigged game. We found this out in
recent months, when a series of related corruption stories spilled out of
the financial sector, suggesting the world’s largest banks may be fixing the
prices of, well, just about everything.

You may have heard of the Libor scandal, in which at least three  and
perhaps as many as 16 Â of the name-brand too-big-to-fail banks have been
manipulating global interest rates, in the process messing around with the
prices of upward of $500 trillion (that’s trillion, with a “t”) worth of
financial instruments. When that sprawling con burst into public view last
year, it was easily the biggest financial scandal in history  MIT professor
Andrew Lo even said it “dwarfs by orders of magnitude any financial scam in
the history of markets.”

That was bad enough, but now Libor may have a twin brother. Word has leaked
out that the London-based firm ICAP, the world’s largest broker of
interest-rate swaps, is being investigated by American authorities for
behavior that sounds eerily reminiscent of the Libor mess. Regulators are
looking into whether or not a small group of brokers at ICAP may have worked
with up to 15 of the world’s largest banks to manipulate ISDAfix, a
benchmark number used around the world to calculate the prices of
interest-rate swaps.

Interest-rate swaps are a tool used by big cities, major corporations and
sovereign governments to manage their debt, and the scale of their use is
almost unimaginably massive. It’s about a $379 trillion market, meaning that
any manipulation would affect a pile of assets about 100 times the size of
the United States federal budget.

It should surprise no one that among the players implicated in this scheme
to fix the prices of interest-rate swaps are the same megabanks  including
Barclays, UBS, Bank of America, JPMorgan Chase and the Royal Bank of
Scotland  that serve on the Libor panel that sets global interest rates. In
fact, in recent years many of these banks have already paid
multimillion-dollar settlements for anti-competitive manipulation of one
form or another (in addition to Libor, some were caught up in an
anti-competitive scheme, detailed in Rolling Stone last year, to rig
municipal-debt service auctions). Though the jumble of financial acronyms
sounds like gibberish to the layperson, the fact that there may now be
price-fixing scandals involving both Libor and ISDAfix suggests a single,
giant mushrooming conspiracy of collusion and price-fixing hovering under
the ostensibly competitive veneer of Wall Street culture.

The Scam Wall Street Learned From the Mafia

Why? Because Libor already affects the prices of interest-rate swaps, making
this a manipulation-on-manipulation situation. If the allegations prove to
be right, that will mean that swap customers have been paying for two
different layers of price-fixing corruption. If you can imagine paying 20
bucks for a crappy PB&J because some evil cabal of agribusiness companies
colluded to fix the prices of both peanuts and peanut butter, you come close
to grasping the lunacy of financial markets where both interest rates and
interest-rate swaps are being manipulated at the same time, often by the
same banks.

“It’s a double conspiracy,” says an amazed Michael Greenberger, a former
director of the trading and markets division at the Commodity Futures
Trading Commission and now a professor at the University of Maryland. “It’s
the height of criminality.”

The bad news didn’t stop with swaps and interest rates. In March, it also
came out that two regulators  the CFTC here in the U.S. and the
Madrid-based International Organization of Securities Commissions  were
spurred by the Libor revelations to investigate the possibility of collusive
manipulation of gold and silver prices. “Given the clubby manipulation
efforts we saw in Libor benchmarks, I assume other benchmarks  many other
benchmarks  are legit areas of inquiry,” CFTC Commissioner Bart Chilton
said.

But the biggest shock came out of a federal courtroom at the end of March Â
though if you follow these matters closely, it may not have been so shocking
at all  when a landmark class-action civil lawsuit against the banks for
Libor-related offenses was dismissed. In that case, a federal judge accepted
the banker-defendants’ incredible argument: If cities and towns and other
investors lost money because of Libor manipulation, that was their own fault
for ever thinking the banks were competing in the first place.

“A farce,” was one antitrust lawyer’s response to the eyebrow-raising
dismissal.

“Incredible,” says Sylvia Sokol, an attorney for Constantine Cannon, a firm
that specializes in antitrust cases.

All of these stories collectively pointed to the same thing: These banks,
which already possess enormous power just by virtue of their financial
holdings  in the United States, the top six banks, many of them the same
names you see on the Libor and ISDAfix panels, own assets equivalent to 60
percent of the nation’s GDP Â are beginning to realize the awesome
possibilities for increased profit and political might that would come with
colluding instead of competing. Moreover, it’s increasingly clear that both
the criminal justice system and the civil courts may be impotent to stop
them, even when they do get caught working together to game the system.

If true, that would leave us living in an era of undisguised, real-world
conspiracy, in which the prices of currencies, commodities like gold and
silver, even interest rates and the value of money itself, can be and may
already have been dictated from above. And those who are doing it can get
away with it. Forget the Illuminati  this is the real thing, and it’s no
secret. You can stare right at it, anytime you want.
