Crescent Moon Phase: expand, grow, defy struggle

Moon in Gemini

Ruling Mahavidya: Chinnamasta and Kali

Negative Imprint: cut off

Positive Imprint: linked together

Skill: if difficulty arises, cut yourself off from struggle; reconnect with common values or what you have in common

Today’s energy tempts us into feeling cut off – cut off from Spirit, cut off from others, cut off from joy. Instead we can take this tendency and use it to cut through the matrix and the illusion that we are alone. We are part of the cosmos. Each of us is a thread in the great weaving.

Part of today’s energy involves feeling like we are repeating patterns or are back where we started. Life is cyclical. But we come at things wiser than we did the last time. This means we can do things a different way if we want. Don’t be fooled with things that look like they have “fallen down.” They are merely ready to change form and function. The past warps into the present and begins morphing into the future. New usefulness emerges from what seems to have been cut down or knocked out.

The Sun released an M6-class flare yesterday at 10:05 am ET/ 2:05 pm UT. We can look to the Sabian symbol for the degree of the Moon at the moment of the flare to ascertain which type of energy was empowered. The symbol is “a new continent rising out of the ocean.” The flare flooded the field of possibility (the field of consciousness, the field of experience) with energy. It’s an extra spark to create something brand new and very big. This is a wonderful addition to the imprint of this new year. Thanks, Sabaoth!

The energy from the flare undoubtedly contributed to yesterday’s earthquake (aftershock) in Chile. These massive quakes once again prove McCanney’s electric universe (plasma discharge) theory. When a planet conjuncts a New Moon like it did a few days ago (and remains tight with the Sun now), the effects are felt tectonically and meteorologically on Earth. They are also felt in the delicate systems of the body. This is particularly true of Uranus, as I’ve mentioned. Uranus amps things up. The Sun joined in.

We will wait until more of the facts emerge to see if the latest event at Fort Hood was a result of madness from these energetics or part of the plan to forward the new world order’s agenda.

Today, don’t struggle. Stay connected and part of the weaving of the cosmos.

Planet Alert April 2014 | Mahala Gayle


April is here! What do you suppose will happen with this major cardinal
cross that is in our heavens right now? It has already been triggered. We
had a huge mud slide in OSO, WA on March 22 shortly after the Sun went into
the sign of Aries. OSO is north of Seattle. The news said it was one of the
largest natural disaster we have had in our state because of all the people
who died in the slide. The official total is 24 but there are 30 people
still missing.

The West Coast is still under stress and will be until Saturn moves out of
Scorpio in December of 2014. When planets are in either Taurus or Scorpio
events happen on the coast. The 6.9 quake that happened last month off the
coast of California was another example of the Scorpio energy. Scorpio is a
water sign and the quake was in the water. The mud slide was caused by lots
of rain in the slide area. From April 20 to May 20 the sun will be in Taurus
and this means there could be more Earth changes along the coast.

There have been other major events that have happened recently like the huge
oil spill off the coast of Texas. That was another water event that also
included oil. Texas is also ruled by Scorpio although it is by latitude
instead of longitude. The West Coast is by longitude. Scorpio also rules the
Middle East along with Russia, and Mars is over the Ukraine right now.

Vladimir PutinÂs sun is on 13 degrees Libra and during the exact cross on
April 22, the planet Mars will be on top of his sun. The planet Mars is very
powerful, and it can cause a person to become very angry. Pluto, which will
be square his sun on 13 degrees Capricorn will give him the desire for more
power. In fact, as the sun goes through Aries it will be opposing his Libra
planets. Right now (March 29th) Mars is on top of his Mercury, and this
gives him the desire to communicate his ideas and he just called president
Obama to discuss ongoing events. We will see what manifests from that call.

Obama also visited the Pope a few days ago. What did they discuss in their
visit? Could it have been something to do with the Vatican Bank? That Bank
is run by the Jesuits and they have controlled the world for a long time.

As the sun moves through Aries it will continue triggering the planets in
the cardinal cross. On April 8th Mars will be at its closest point to Earth.
If you have clear skies at that time you might want to look for that planet.
Mars is a very beautiful planet. When a planet is close to Earth it is
always very powerful.

Did you know that it says in the Bible that when you see the sign of the son
of man in the heavens you will know the time for redemption has arrived?
What is the sign of the son of man? IsnÂt it a cross? Well look what will be
in the heavens on Easter this year, the cross. And Easter is the
celebration of the risen Christ, representing ascension.

Then we will have a total lunar eclipse on April 15th, which is the
beginning of the celebration of Passover. This full moon is called a blood
moon because the moon will turn red. We start the Holy week of Easter on
April 13th which is Palm Sunday. Then we have the last supper on Thursday
April 17th Good Friday on April 18th and Easter on April 20. Passover is
very important to the Jewish people and Easter is very important to the
Christian people. Some people celebrate Passover for 7 days and some for 8.
This means that Passover lasts from April 15 to April 22/23 and there will
be a perfect cross in the heavens on April 22. Uranus will be on 13 degrees
Aries, Jupiter 13 degrees Cancer, Mars 13 degrees Libra, and Pluto 13
degrees Capricorn. The moon will trigger this cross on Easter.

Now, letÂs talk about the number 13. This is of course the number of the
Christ or the Goddess. It is the number of birth, death, and transformation.
The April 15th full moon is called the moon of the Christ. Thirteen is the
number that rules the United States which was born on July 4, 1776 when the
sun was on 13 degrees Cancer. The star Sirius (Isis) is on 13/14 degrees
Cancer. The dollar bill of the United States has the number 13 all over it,
and the USA started with 13 states. Jupiter will be on 13 degrees Cancer
over Washington D.C.in the cardinal cross. I remember when Greg Braden said
that when we reached 13 hertz and 0 magnetics we would be at the time of the
change. We are there.

Mona, a friend of mine, channeled for me the other night and this is what
was said ÂThe time-lines have been very chaotic for a long time and just
recently they started coming together. They started folding in on themselves
the first part of March and this put us in a time warp. It can become
peaceful as the time-lines come together if humanity becomes a collective in
their thoughts. If that happens, the time-line can counter-act a possible
war although war can also be the stimulus to move us into a higher frequency
because then people will finally say ÂNo more war.Â

ÂFour time-lines are coming together to create a wave that will pull these
time-lines into one. This is what has caused the Earth to shift. The solar
system will also experience this time-line shift. It will all come together
as one. The energy moves in different directions, and then it goes into one.
When the time-lines all come together as one this will be called zero
magnetics. This will destroy the possibility of war because we will be on a
higher frequency and wonÂt be part of any war. This will be like Divine
intervention. A cosmic wave will take place during Passover. Think in a
higher-format. NO FEAR! This time is most crucial and is favorable for a
shift in consciousness. No one can stop this change. Let the change occur so
peace can reign. This will be a new start for the whole human race.Â

It looks like we are about to move into the higher frequency Earth very
soon. I donÂt know just how this will all work out. I guess time will tell.
I do know that this cardinal cross is a real turning point for humanity. It
will be the time we move into Unity consciousness and become like one,
individual but all part of the whole. I am really excited about this
possibility. This is what I have been expecting to happen for many years. I
will be very happy to be living on the higher frequency Earth with all the
possibilities that will become available to us.

The cardinal cross is the turning point, although the energy from that cross
will last for a long time. A lunar eclipse alone is usually in effect for at
least six months. We also have a solar eclipse on April 28th. This month
will be very powerful so keep your seat belts on as we move through this
energy. Chances are there will be one event after another so keep calm as
these events happen. Because Washington D.C. is on 13 degrees Cancer I think
that something major will happen there at this time. Hopefully it is not a
war with Russia. At that time Jupiter will be over Washington D.C. and
Pluto will be over Moscow. This could cause a clash of wills and who knows
what might happen. (I just heard that North and South Korea are at their war
games again.)

Or it could work out in an entirely different way. Look at what happened to
MH 370. Does anyone really know what happened to that plane? There are many
theories. Some say the plane was hijacked, others say the pilot or co-polite
caused the plane to go down. Others say the plane went into a time warp or
had magnetic interference, and still others say they have found the remains
of the plane in the Indian Ocean. As far as I know, no one has recovered any
parts from the plane yet. Maybe the plane is hiding out on some remote
island for various reasons. Something seems very fishy about that whole

Check out this link about the Axis shift-I found it very interesting.

Anyway, control your anger as we move through this energy, live in love and
be kind to each other. We need to become as one so the time-line can
counter-act any war that might occur. Become peaceful within and express
your love because love is all there is. And that is how it is. HAPPY

I send my love and blessings to everyone!

The manuscript of survival – part 408

Thank you Aisha! It is a real mindfulness practice to keep ahead of the things which stimulate fear and keep choosing to release fear and accept what comes in love and grace. But like all mindfulness practice, over time it will get easier with determination and consistent practice.
It constantly amazes me how often I will be focusing on something and the next day Aisha will write about it!

aisha north

Time is indeed speeding up once again, as as things seem to become more and more blurry because of the speed of interaction between you and these incoming energies, you will all at times be hard pressed to see anything ahead. And rightly so, for this is not the time to look ahead, this is simply a time to just be within that minuscule, but ever expanding little sphere known as the NOW. For this is where you reside at all times, but for some reason, it is a time in space that mankind seem to have overlooked for such a long time, and so, you choose instead to linger in the past or skip ahead to a place you think of as the future. Well, when you do this, you are simply narrowing down the whole bandwidth of opportunities and potential you have at your disposal, and as you…

Carl Boudreau’s Astrology Blog: The Astrology of April 2014 – A New Paradigm?

Carl Boudreau's Astrology Blog

The Astrology of April 2014 – A New Paradigm?


The Astrology of April 2014 – A New Paradigm?

For years, in many democratic nations, two relatively small elite groups, one essentially conservative, one essentially liberal, have controlled political, economic and cultural debate and all but dictated outcomes.
In recent months, a decidedly more inclusive, pluralistic, “multi-polar” approach to resolving important political issues has been suggested by and supported in the charts. This month’s analysis is about this proposed New Paradigm.
I will describe the astrological evidence for its existence and describe its likely effects in the real world. We can then decide for ourselves whether the New Paradigm is a real thing producing observable effects in the world.

March Recap

March’s aspects sent transformative energy deep into our hearts and minds, motivating and empowering us to explore new ways of thinking about our lives and the world around us.
The social, political and economic structures that shape society are rooted in our minds. This suggests that these inner changes are, indeed, laying the foundation for a New Paradigm.

April & January
April’s chart resembles January’s in relevant ways. A Grand Cross in Cardinal Signs is embedded in a Kite. An intense blocking energy is harnessed to power an inclusive, wide-ranging debate process instead. In January, local and state level activism too the lead.
Accordingly, this winter, politics did not follow the old right-left paradigm. In the US, Washington gridlock morphed into a complex dialogue between the local, state and national governments. Conservatives began to compromise with liberals in ways that scarcely seemed possible. The conflicts were still readily apparent, but they were at least partially overcome to produce progress.
In the US, at least, Liberals and conservatives cooperated, however grudgingly, on key budget issues. A number of states moved forward with the legalization of pot and marriage equality. Grassroots protest against fracking surged. There was resistance to drug testing of welfare recipients in Florida, action against voter suppression laws and a range of other issues. These trends continued in February.
It became clear that stepped up grassroots activism was now part of the landscape. Things are still happening that no one would have anticipated, given the epic confrontations of recent years.
April’s Chart
April’s combination of Grand Cross and Kite, augmented by the effects of two eclipses, will make the emerging trends of this winter the new normal. The changes brought about this winter will firm up and the trend toward compromise and progressive reform will grow quite noticeably. The sharp, deeply ideological conflicts will remain apparent, but it will become clear that regressive forces in both conservative and liberal camps have lost ground.
An “imperfection” in April’s Kite will bring income inequality and the forces that keep it in place to the fore, demanding that it be actively addressed.


The Bad News Squares
In general, the issue of political and economic fairness is foregrounded in April.
Mars retrograde is in Libra in the 5th; Jupiter is in Cancer in the 2nd; Uranus in Aries is in the 11th, and Pluto retrograde is in Capricorn in the 8th. The Cardinal signs are all placed in fixed houses, further ensuring conflict.
Jupiter opposes Pluto along the financial axis, which governs the relation between individual and collective finances. The power and wealth of the government and the finance industry (Pluto in Capricorn in the 8th) is massed against the productivity and prosperity of individuals (Jupiter in Cancer in the 2nd).
Uranus opposes Mars along the the axis connecting individual and group interests. The expectations and aspirations of the individual (Mars in Leo in the 5th house) are pitted against group ideals and aspirations (Uranus in Aries in the 11th). Accordingly, in the public arena, conservative ideologies are arrayed against liberal, group-oriented ideologies.
This Grand Cross in Cardinal Signs embodies the central economic and ideological issues of our times.

The Good News Kite
Fortunately, the great tensions of April’s Grand Cardinal Cross are imbedded in a Kite which absorbs its severe tensions.
The Kite is organized around the financial axis; the opposition across the charts financial axis runs from the base to the apex of the Kite. It looks perfectly placed to relieve the fierce tension over fundamental economic issues. The Kite’s trines and sextiles will allow input from many sides, from high and low.

Into the Political Sunshine
An all important sextile is missing in the Kite. And that is a good thing.
The gap in the Kite leaves an opening that extends from the early degrees of the the 8th, thru the 7th and most of the 6th house.
The bodies in the 7th house are Quaoar, Pholus, and Ixion; all are retrograde in Sagittarius.
Two influences, are poised to slip rough the opening left by the missing sextile, bypassing the filtering, moderating, integrative powers of the Kite.

One influence governs the ideas (Sagittarius) that shape societal attitudes (Quaoar, Pholus and Ixion) and the partisan alliances (the 7th house) that ensure that new laws don’t change the status quo.
Another influence (Saturn retrograde in Scorpio in the 6th), highlights the exploitation and hardship of working people.
Combined, these two influences will penetrate to the heart of public debate and demand that the issues they represent be dealt with in their raw, unfiltered, unmodified form.
This gap in the Kite will block the ideological alliances that hammer new laws into the shape of old laws; these alliances and their work will instead become an issue. They will be identified as part of the problem and made the target of legislative action.
The likely outcome, over time, will be legislation that blocks the interference of these groups, opening the way for genuine reform of labor laws and the creation of laws that address income inequality.
Be mindful that all these bodies are retrograde. The debate will go deep and reform will proceed over time. In general, retrograde motion indicates an inclination to back away from prevailing attitudes and beliefs.
Harbingers of Things to Come
These events will likely be part of an emerging trend. The US labor force is governed by Taurus in the 6th house of the US natal chart. Uranus will transition into Taurus in 2018-19, ushering in, I believe, a new era of labor activism and reforms.
As I write this, the US National Labor Relations Board ruled that football players at Northwestern University, with campuses in Chicago and Evanston, Illinois, are university employees and can unionize. Appeals could take years to resolve. (Saturn retrograde in Scorpio in the 6th.)
To the extent that economic events in the US are indicative of emerging global trends, this suggests a global resurgence of labor activism and labor reforms.
However, we needn’t necessarily anticipate an epic confrontation between labor and management. If the New Paradigm is a reality, coming reforms will be the result of a much more open, inclusive debate. Solutions adopted will be more innovative and less polarizing than similar solutions in the past.

The Beginning of the Beginning?
There are also two eclipses in April.

  • April 15th ~ a total eclipse of the Full Moon in Libra. (GMT)
  • April 29th ~ an annular eclipse of the Sun in Taurus. (GMT)

Using the Sun and Moon placements in the composite chart, the lunar eclipse energy would flow through Leo in the 3rd house. The solar eclipse energy would flow through Taurus in the 11th house. These placements are square by sign, but trine by house.
Taurus, the sign governing personal income and finances, squares Leo, the sign of personal and interpersonal exploration. The House of Aquarius, governing idealized interpersonal and group values, is trining the House of Gemini, the house of community.
Using these composite placements, the eclipses set up an intricate tension between individual and community expectations. These placements suggest a negative and positive developments that will push people to reconcile the needs of the community with the needs of its members.
Privately, April’s eclipses will firm up psychological and spiritual transformations supported by recent charts. We commit to a new course for ourselves.
Publically, people will revisit issues of political and economic fairness with deeply revised attitudes and personal opinions.
Gross income inequality and the mechanisms that perpetuate it will be examined in a new light and with a renewed will to eliminate it.
All issues will be addressed more openly and inclusively.
A Test Case
The eclipses also suggest a turning point in the emergence of the New Paradigm. If my hypothesis is correct, from April onward, we should expect to see more open, inclusive, constructive debate and fewer confrontations.
The crisis in the Ukraine makes a good test case. Many are predicting a return to Cold War conditions between Russia and the West. If the New Paradigm is a reality, then the Crimean and Ukrainian crises will proceed along far less confrontational, far less destructive lines than other, comparable crises.

I’m excited about the possibilities but not sure if this project really is as described. I posted the plans and have had two engineers tell me the plans posted were for a generator Tesla designed to run on hydro or steam power with a lot of nonsense/technobabble that did not actually make engineering sense. They both told me it was a scam to get donations and this posts emphasis on donating does not encourage me to disbelieve them:-(

I would hate to see a lot of money wasted on a nonworking thing when the potential for working projects is quite good now.

I hope it does work but I have watched so many scams and false possibilities devastate the online community over the last four years that I am cautious.

Has anyone not already associated with the fix the world group actually seen this thing operating effectively?

Is there a YouTube of it actually creating power while not connected to any other power source?

Until there is some independent verification I believe caution and research are much more logical than flinging money at people who tell you something you want to hear.

Perhaps living just across the bridge from P T Barnum’s winter home makes me more suspicious of anyone exhibiting the tactics he described but no offense is intended to fix the world-if they are for real I support them enthusiastically. I just want more than unsupported assertions to demonstrate they are for real.

CNRL pipeline leaks 70,000 litres near Slave Lake and Burnaby, B.C., is standing up to Big Oil.

Thank you for posting this!

Family Survival Protocol - Microcosm News


British Columbia city challenges oil pipeline: What about fire or leak?


Burnaby, B.C., is standing up to Big Oil.

The Vancouver suburb wants to know where a proposed oil pipeline is going to go, especially if Burnaby fire crews are expected to handle a leak, rupture or conflagration.

The vast Alberta oil stands project, along with oil development in North Dakota, is outstripping the capacity of North America's pipelines.  Hence, oil is increasingly being moved by rail.  A disaster in Quebec raises questions for the Northwest. (Getty Images)

The big, Houston-based Kinder Morgan pipeline company wants to double the capacity of its existing Trans-Mountain Pipeline. The pipeline transports crude oil from Alberta beneath the city of Burnaby (population 202,000) to a refinery on the shores of Burrard Inlet.

The pipeline expansion appears greased — Prime Minister Stephen Harper wants to turn Canada into an oil-exporting power — but Burnaby is unwilling to lie down before the carbon economy.  Its city attorney, Greg McDade, asked in a letter to Canada’s National Energy Board:

“What would happen in the event of a fire? …
