William Rivers Pitt | War Eternal: One Man Gathers What Another Man Spills

William Rivers Pitt, Truthout: The Obama administration tries to justify the US campaign against ISIS by saying both Syria and Iraq are too weak to defend themselves. Nowhere in these excuses is any accountability for the United States’ contribution to the destabilization of the region.

Stupid Stuff

L. Michael Hager, Truthout: The president’s reported quote, “Don’t do stupid stuff,” is good advice. However, our policy makers too often ignore it. The Middle East wars, Guantánamo and the unconditional support of Israel are ongoing examples of stupid stuff.

The GOP Continues Its Condescending Outreach to Female Voters

The Oracle Report | Friday, September 26, 2014



NEW AUDIO: September 22, 2014

Libra 2014 Cycle: “Time to Respond”

Libra 2014 Cycle – Time to Respond


Friday, September 26, 2014

New Moon Phase: initiate

Moon in Libra/Scorpio

Skill: create the mind space of comfort and ease

Negative Imprint: possessiveness, secrets, jealousy, dependent, over-analyzing, loneliness, the mistaken belief that one is unlovable or unworthy

Positive Imprint: composure, elegance, pioneering, philosophical, existential, sharing, receptive, hospitality, love

Today’s energy carries strong social and romantic elements. This brings a profound desire to connect with others on a deep, shared level. Presentations, classes, sessions, invitations, and the like are supported under this energy, as it seeks to link people together.

Since the energy drives us to connect on authentic levels, if we do not have connections on a deep, shared level, today’s energy will be challenging. It will press on feelings of isolation, loneliness, and loss. It can feel like being lost and alone in the woods.

But at the core, we want to be able to be ourselves, comfortable and at ease, accepted and valued for who we are. Wisdom comes from creating this mind space – this feeling of comfort and ease – within the calm of our psyches. We create the feeling inside of ourselves, and one day, viola! We wake up to see that our lives have rearranged around that. The field changed. All we did was show up every day and radiate from our hearts, freeing those signals to find resonance with other signals.

This requires belief.

It helps to understand frequency resonance, the universal truth of like attracting like.

It means we amp up who we are and what is in resonance will respond.

So instead of this energy wielding us around in search of something in the external, wise owls do what we usually do – the reverse, or more accurately, the inverse. Instead of seeking something out there, bring forth something from in here, inside. Respond to the energy like the acrobatic spiritual warrior of the heart that you are. Turn it inside out.

Then see what happens.

Additionally today, Mercury spends its last day in Libra, and it goes out with a significant increase in signs, synchronicities, and messages. Remember that these often come from nature with animal sightings, unusual encounters, and recurring symbols and numbers. The information we gain will enable us to incorporate different aspects to see a bigger picture of something.

The energy also facilitates bringing the abstract into reality, so projects, ideas, and creations more easily come to life. Take advantage of this prime opportunity.

As a guide today, respond with the question “Does this bring me peace of mind?” Your answer will lead you.

Thank you for supporting the Oracle Report. Blessings to all!
