Ritual for Connecting with Your Ancestors

Thank you for posting this. It is so beautifully written that it brought tears to my eyes while reading. Bringing up the deep awareness of this sacred connection we all have, but which is too often lost or forgotten amidst the rush and bustle of modern electronic dominated life. I’m looking forward to your post tomorrow!

“When we have passed a certain age, the soul of the child that we were and the souls of the dead from whom we sprang come and shower upon us their riches and their spells, asking to be allowed to contribute to the new emotions which we feel and in which, erasing their former image, we recast them in an original creation.”

2015 is almost upon us.

It’s going to be a big year for many. A positive year. A year where everything changes.

Years ago, when I lived in the Kimberley, my Aboriginal Aunties taught me how to call on and connect with my Ancestors. Doing that changed my life in ways I could never have imagined. There is so much…

The Oracle Report | Monday, December 22, 2014



“The Mass Turn” – Capricorn 2014 Lunar Cycle: December 21, 2014 – January 19, 2015


“The Black Moon Transit of Virgo: November 27, 2014 – August 25, 2015”


Monday, December 22, 2014

New Moon Phase: beginnings

Moon in Capricorn

Ruling Mahavidya: Kali

Skill: watch

Negative Imprint: disconnection; commitment issues; worries; superficial relationships; escaping into fantasy; fear; carelessness; bombs and bombardment

Positive Imprint: messages of peace and harmony; enthusiasm; carefree spirit; self-discipline; broad overviews, gentle communications; desire for contentment and companionship; power of observation

Mighty Uranus, the Lord of Lightning, takes hold of Venus and Pluto today, which means changes for us.

Uranus stationed direct with the New Moon in Capricorn overnight, which is a signal for change in and of itself. But Uranus was in an astrological square to Venus and Pluto, which were conjunct (at the same place in the sky) at the New Moon.

Uranus has been retrograde since July 21, 2014. When a planet stations retrograde, it is like pulling back the sling on a slingshot. When the planet has pulled back as far as it can, it releases and the refined energy floods the field of consciousness.

Uranus brings swift change to put us where we need to be. Together, Venus and Pluto’s themes involve relationships, values, money, sexuality, displays of power, and deep connections and creations from the Great Void. These are the areas undergoing intensive change and transformation right now, quite noticeably today.

Because Uranus is so electric, like lightning in a bottle, when it is unleashed it is can be very, very dramatic. It’s wild, unpredictable, and oftentimes shocking. The changes it brings – internally and externally – make profound impact on our lives.

All of that said, Uranus’ forward movement is almost in that state of pause or momentary stop before it shoots forward because the energetics of the Earth today inhibit forward movement to some degree. A sort of limbo hangs in the air. So we may not see the full power of Uranus stationing direct until tomorrow.

Venus’ energy today also tries to bring vitality – life force – back to us. It’s energy for restoration and regeneration. This is primarily focused on restoration and regeneration of our physical bodies, but creative projects, ideas, and work also benefit.

“The point of power is in the present moment” as the Seth Books by Jane Roberts tell us, so a hanging pause in the air gives us more time to see the reality of things. Wise owls remain watchful while the energy is in pause, fully aware that what’s going on at the same time is restoration and regeneration.

At the core level, restoration and regeneration with all that is aligned with the true values of freedom, love, beauty, expression, and ingenuity is happening. Like a bolt of lightning, the power of these things is being unleashed on the world to set things straight. Today, we watch.

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

NorthPoint Astrology Journal | December 22 to 28, 2014 | Pam Younghans

Posted Sunday, December 21, 2014
Astrology Journal
Your Guide to Planetary Energies for
December 22 to 28, 2014

By Pam Younghans

AS URANUS completes its retrograde phase and comes to a standstill today (Sunday, December 21), we each have a greater-than-usual capacity to focus on what defines us as a unique individual on the planet, as well to perceive how that uniqueness benefits the whole. Uranian themes also involve liberation, and while the planet is in Aries (2010-2019), we are being challenged to free ourselves from the fears that have held us back from being proactive in some area of our lives.

Uranus has been retrograde (moving backward) since July 21 of this year, providing the energetic support for us to come to new levels of awareness, both of our own needs and desires, and of our place in the cosmos. As Uranus now begins forward motion and picks up speed over the coming weeks, we will be more supported in courageously taking action based on those illuminations and truths we have discovered or received.

ANOTHER major event of the week occurs on Tuesday, when Saturn leaves Scorpio and enters Sagittarius. Although I consider all the planets to be our teachers, Saturn is perhaps most suited to be called The Teacher, since its lessons include responsibility, discipline, practicality, self-sufficiency, and self-respect — the foundational qualities for a productive life.

While Saturn has been in Scorpio (since October 2012), the ringed planet has been requiring us to take responsibility for our use of truth and power. We’ve seen concrete results of what happens when we keep secrets, manipulate and coerce, and let our well-being be derailed by suspicions and distrust.

We’ve had opportunities to see what happens when we choose the dark instead of the light, and vice versa. We hopefully leave this Saturn-in-Scorpio time more aware of our own unconscious patterning, and less controlled (disempowered) by it.

NOW, as Saturn enters Sagittarius, the lesson plan shifts. Over the next two years, we will be called to weed out the ancient, outdated beliefs of “right and wrong,” to observe where we tend to be judgmental, where we feel self-righteous, and where we need to be more openminded.

We may see challenges and restructuring within religious organizations and international corporations while Saturn is in Sagittarius, since these are areas “ruled” by the sign. For some, there may be a crisis of faith or ethics as it becomes clear that an old world view no longer suffices.

WE CONTINUE to feel the influence of the Pluto-Uranus square this week — and, actually, for the next three months! Although the aspect was exact on December 14, the two planets are both moving slowly, and will remain within 1 degree of being exactly square (90 degrees apart) until early April.

In other words, we will be working with the themes of transformation and liberation in very tangible ways over the next 90 days at least. This week, those themes may come especially apparent on Wednesday, when Mercury steps into the Pluto-Uranus energy field.

MERCURY represents our conscious minds, our ability to communicate, and our capacity for learning. With the Uranus-Mercury square on Wednesday, we are challenged to think in new ways, to liberate our consciousness and to allow new neural pathways to be created.

With this aspect, especially, we should be prepared to be flexible. Things rarely go according to plan when Uranus is involved, so expect detours, miscommunications, and plenty of static electricity — both literally and symbolically.

AT THE SAME TIME that this heightened energy is making our hair stand on end, Mercury aligns with Pluto in Capricorn. This planetary combination puts the power of our convictions behind our words, and puts words to our instinctive reactions.

In other words, if you’re getting together with family for the holidays, you may find the conversations and interactions even more memorable than usual! On the positive side, let’s call this an opportunity to feel more empowered — except that the greater strength may come not from needing to gain control of the conversation, but from knowing our truth internally, without needing to convince others that we are right.

It may help to check in with what is motivating our words before we speak this week. Are we truly wanting to share an inspired thought with openminded others, and are we equally open to hearing their thoughts and ideas? Or, are the words tumbling out instinctively and unconsciously, without prior consideration for how the room (and we) will feel once the words have been unleashed and are roaming at will?

OUR TELECLASS covering the first six months of 2015 is just two weeks from this Thursday! My class on January 8 is called “At the Door of a New Age” — and I’m excited to talk with you about the possibilities that lie ahead of us in the new year.

To help you get the most from the class, your registration confirmation email will include a pdf of monthly calendars I’ll be using during the class. If you’d like to print the calendars before the class airs, you can then take notes directly on the calendars as you listen to the class, either live or by replay.

At the Door of a New Age
Your astrology guide for January to June 2015

A 90-minute teleclass with Astrologer Pam Younghans and Wellness Educator Elsie Kerns

Thursday, January 8, 2015
Live broadcast: 4pm PST | 5pm MST | 6pm CST | 7pm EST

Also available by download after class airs | Fee: $25

THE FIRST 6 MONTHS OF 2015 hold enormous potential for spiritual growth and creative change, as the planets challenge each of us to make a quantum leap in some area of our lives.

We’ve been working with the transformational energies of the ongoing Pluto-Uranus square for 3 years now. By the end of 2014, we will have experienced the exact aspect 6 times. But in each of those exact aspects, either Pluto or Uranus has been retrograde, leaving us to balance the need to resolve issues from the past with a strong desire to leap into the future.

March 16, 2015 is the date of the 7th and final exact square between Pluto and Uranus – and on that date, both planets will be in forward motion. In other words, it’s all systems go, full speed ahead!

In this 90-minute teleclass, I’ll explain more about what this final Pluto-Uranus square means, and how it relates to the title of the class, “At the Door of a New Age.” I’ll also talk about other exciting and potentially life-changing events in the first 6 months of 2015:

  • The highly-energized line-up of planets in mid-March, which sees Mars aligning with Uranus and both planets trine Jupiter, right before the final Pluto-Uranus square – and just days before an eclipse and the solstice
  • The Total Solar Eclipse on March 20 in the very last degree of the zodiac (29 degrees of Pisces), indicating a time of completion and the need to release old definitions of spirituality
  • The Total Lunar Eclipse on April 4 that activates more events related to the Pluto-Uranus-Mars-Jupiter line-up in March
  • The first months of Saturn’s transit through Sagittarius, and its return to Scorpio on June 14

I’ll also cover the significance of the New and Full Moons for each month, as well as Mercury’s retrograde phases, and other highlights of the first half of 2015. As before, the slideshow will include monthly calendars showing the most important planetary aspects.

I hope you can join us, either “live” as the class airs, or by download afterward!
