Thank you! This list is a fine balance for the revelation and exposure of the fake protests and insurrections being engineered by the 1% thru their usual minions. Ukraine has been exposed as one just as Libya was, and so many in the past and present (Syria of course! ). I hope that the awakening will be heart based with compassion for all. This so called awakening where people are hate filled calling for violence and saying the idea that everyone deserves to have their basic needs met is some sort of satanic socialist plot has been really crushing my spirit to encounter. Especially when some espousing it are calling themselves spiritual teachers. If it isnt rooted in compassion it isnt ascension imho. We can call for an end to wrongs without descending to the same level of hate at which those wrongs were created.

Christian Exoo and Calvin F. Exoo, Truthout: Poverty has been identified as a causal factor in lower IQ and psychiatric disorders. What can this tell us about public policy and the minimum wage?
Rania Khalek, Truthout: Fifty-eight-year-old Iraqi-born artist, activist and businessman Andy Shallal is running for mayor of Washington. He tells Truthout about his hopes and plans for the district: public housing and education, alleviating homelessness, limiting the role of money in politics, raising the minimum wage, and what not to call the city’s football team.
Ven. Bhikkhu Bodhi, Truthout: After environmental study, the State Department recently offered an almost apologetic justification for permitting the Keystone XL pipeline to be built, but strong pragmatic considerations and deeper reflection, lead to the possibility of a pivotal decision for a different world.
Jim Hightower, OtherWords: Pat Roberts is dancing like a fool with right-wing ideologues who want to elect one of their own to the Senate.
Michael Winship, Moyers & Company: Wednesday’s announcement by Chairman Tom Wheeler that the FCC would write new rules to insure open access to the Internet generally was seen by consumers as a step in the right direction. But media reform advocates were concerned that it didn’t go far enough.
In today‘s On the News segment: It looks like Progressives may be able to claim a victory; there are still massive problems at the crippled Fukushima nuclear power plant; more than 1,000 medical professionals say that fracking must be stopped; and more.
Robert Naiman, Truthout: There is wide political agreement that we need to do more to support our veterans and their families. A key question is how we are going to pay for increased veterans’ benefits, given broad Republican resistance to raising revenue or increasing the deficit.
Melia Ungson, Next New Deal: Beyond concerns about having adequate supplies of water for drinking, industry, and agriculture, priorities to protect ecosystems and water quality are being put to the test. Even though California has managed with droughts in the past, this is a new scale.
Making Contact, National Radio Project: On this edition of Making Contact we explore how the privatization of public education is playing out across the country and how students and teachers are fighting back.
Kevin Mathews, Care2: American multi-billionaire Tom Perkins can’t seem to avoid controversy lately. Whether he’s comparing himself to a Holocaust victim, calling for mass disenfranchisement, or even just writing erotica, the headlines are sure to follow.

Thank you Aisha!
We want to return to a topic that has been mentioned before, but that bears repeating as we usually say, and this time, it is the subject of time. Time is a subject that will keep popping up in our missives, and rightly so, as the whole concept of time and indeed the limitation you seem to think it has is indeed a subject that lies at the very core of this whole operation. You see, mankind’s idea of time as this linear stretch of events that slowly unfolds at a designated pace will also help to limit your ideas as to how and when a certain event may come about. For to you, things can only happen at the level of consciousness that you are able to witness. And so, you see strict limitations to everything as you seem to think that everything must adhere to these limitations that…

Thank you Laura!
We do all that we can to support you emotionally in many cases, and to have you with us as much as possible.

You must experience what was agreed by your life planning.
We can offer you emotional and spiritual support to lighten your burden in many cases, but our duty is not to interfere with free, karma or life…

Third Quarter Moon Phase: revise, re-align, re-evaluate, take responsibility
Ruling Mahavidya: Matangi
Technically, we come to the last Moon phase of the astrological/natural year with today’s opening of the Third Quarter Moon phase. This phase lasts until Tuesday, February 25, when the Balsamic Moon phase begins, effectively beginning preparation for the next astrological/natural new year. So we have the next few days to clean up and close out anything from this past year (or longer) that we want to energetically leave behind.
I am sure it feels like I’ve been writing this same thing over and over. In fact, I have for the last two months, as these have been the “Third Quarter time of year.” It’s a process and it takes time because we have to work within it as the Moon ticks through each of our charts throughout the months. It resonates differently on different days for different people. This is the explanation for why, with oracles, the message you get is the message you need. It also explains why messages delivered by oracles often seem disjointed. Multiple layers of answers are found in them.
This weekend’s energy signatures are listed below (but they are generalized through the weekend, so the days’ energies are not static or limited to the day):
Saturday – patience and compromise (give and take) are required; clashing of worlds and viewpoints between parties; too much information; exchanges of information and goods; group efforts; issues with balancing time with others versus time to oneself; being graceful in situations of loss or being a bad loser; people operating at different “speeds” can be annoying.
Sunday – The Sun and Neptune make the exact conjunction, bringing light to situations and issues so that we can understand them or see through any denial. RECOGNITION is the keyword with the day’s energy. What do we need to recognize? Who do we need to recognize? Do you recognize yourself?
The phrase written above the arches of many mystery schools was “know yourself, know the universe.” This is what the parliament of wise owls here does. The universe is giving us a prime opportunity to SEE this weekend.
Thank you for sharing this. It seems insane to me that people think they can show up and take land that belongs to people whose ancestors have lived there for thousands of years. Im happily amazed that the Brazilian government is now actually saying the indigenous have rights. I wish that sort of thing were more than lip service in all countries so far:-/
Thank you Jueseppi for taking extra effort to share this. It is sickening that the same political tricks keep working to keep corrupt monsters in power. All people deserve equal rights and protection under the law no matter what country. I know devout Christian people in America that still fight to deny equal marriage rights because despite Jesus own repeated exhortations to love everyone and judge more one-they feel judging gays is morally superior to actually following Jesus teachings. Its ridiculous to designate any group as undeserving of fair treatment. Its always a lie. I hope President Obama opens America and other countries do the same for those no longer safe in Uganda. Colonization is ignoring your ancestors in favor of imported stupid. I think this qualifies!
Thank you for sharing this. I hope my readers will click thru and read the comments on this as well. I really wish the 1% could be forced to stop using innocent people as pawns. Or at the least that the majority would become aware of the games between rival 1% factions that are destroying ordinary people’s lives and communities from Ukraine and Syria to Libya, Columbia, Venezuela and many countries in Africa as well as the obvious Iraq and Afghanistan.
We are ALL worth more than their damn bottom line externality horseshit.
Thank you for writing this. I think this also explains why my so many “lightworkers” are in poverty, illness and all sorts of tests and difficulty.
I laughed out loud when I read the part about praying for the suffering of the world instead a new car. I loathe poverty but I resemble that remark:-)
I feel like I would be a lot more use to the rest of the world if I didn’t live in a bed tho so I’ve been trying to learn to work that attracting healing and positive stuff thing.
I always thought we got the mournful miserable myths more because of who wrote them down. I assumed there used to be other sets that were lost but your interpretation makes good sense as well. Druids are heavily known for putting everything in code with multiple layers of meaning.
Heather left a powerful comment on my Downtrodden blog, about spiritual attitudes to poverty. I’ve been reflecting on that, and wanted to follow on from there. I’ve never been one for the New Age theories of like attracts like, or that misfortune is the paying off of karmic debts for some awfulness we did in a past life. Equally I have never seen wealth and affluence as proof of being in a deity’s good books. Until recently I hadn’t examined why I hold such beliefs, but on reflection I think it has everything to do with the Celtic element of my Druidry.
Skipping over how truly ancient any of the Celtic myths are, I would say it’s fair to describe them all as a bit mournful. Very few Celtic myths end happily ever after. Many end with the death of the ‘hero’. Tragedy is a pervasive theme. I think about…
