Markets Are the Problem (Not the Solution)

Michael D. Yates, Truthout: Underlying Abu Dhabi’s luxury island resort, Saadiyat Island, is an army of laborers who arrive heavily indebted, only to be brutally exploited by sponsoring employers, who confiscate their passports. Workers are not free to leave, even if they have not been paid.

Putting Heroin Users in Jail Won’t Help Louisiana’s Crime Rate

Lauren-Brooke Eisen, Brennan Center for Justice: It is not draconian prison sentences for drug offenders that “win” the war on drugs, but addiction treatment. Unfortunately, some in Louisiana – the state with the nation’s highest incarceration rate – are still moving backward.

The Middle Class Is Not “Normal”

The Daily Take, The Thom Hartmann Program: We have a choice in this country to either continue going down the road to oligarchy, the road we’ve been on since the Reagan years, or we can choose to go on the road to a more pluralistic society with working class people able to make it into the middle class. We can’t have both.

Full Moon Phase: realization

Moon in Scorpio

Ruling Mahavidya: Chinnamasta and Kali

Skill: loosen up to allow changes

Negative Imprint: cracking

Positive Imprint: crackling

Today’s energy cracks things. Mars moves another degree backward, coming into tighter range with Uranus. Pluto is now retrograde and also pulling back toward Uranus. This energetic tension produces cracks today.

Everyone will experience a degree of cracking – loosening up. Some will feel this more than others. Some will crack wide open. Cracks in our shells reveal a glimpse of our energy. Inside, we shine like a thousand bolts of white lightning and crackle like the sparks of a tall bonfire. This is the place that is undergoing alchemical change.

While this energy pounds down on us, we recognize that we are being changed from within. So we flow and allow changes that are taking place. We don’t resist the change, even if we feel like we are in the midst of a blow-out. What you were is becoming something else. Who you were is becoming someone else. This isn’t a “multiple personality” thing – it’s “multiplicity of person” thing, meaning the multiple facets of our being are shining forth. Talents, interests, hobbies, and missions are being recovered. Most likely these are things that interested you as a child and were left behind somewhere along the way.

Part of what develops with this may involve adjusting expectations, seeing through illusions, feeling like you have let yourself or others down, pity parties, and saying “here I go again.” We can also become too easily mired in details (and this alone could cause us to crack).

The tectonics of the Earth are highly active right now (by natural and artificial means). This type of “cracking” energy would tend to amplify potential for earthquakes.

The “cracking” breaks us away from that which is familiar and takes us into new arenas, not least of which is higher realms of consciousness. All of this is designed to refresh and revitalize us. All we need to do is loosen up and allow the internal changes. Follow the process today. This is what it feels like to transform.

The Oracle Report Tuesday, April 16, 2013

LISTEN TO THE AUDIO RECORDING FOR 4/4/2013 REGARDING CHINNAMASTA

Crescent Moon Phase – Moon in Cancer

The explosions at the Boston Marathon are the manifestation of dark deeds proliferated under the energy of the Eris Point New Moon. For over a week now, I’ve been talking about the strong potential for attacks and aggression all this month because the Illuminati and their Archontic controllers always use the Eris and Black Moon astrological aspects to progress their plans for fear, chaos and destruction. It’s a ritual and they’ve demonstrated it time and again when they take advantage of this energy and alchemize it to empower strikes.

The ritual continues. Note that the night before the New Moon, the Newtown families were honored in DC. Newtown families were at the marathon. All that is missing at this point is some reference in a Batman movie.

The jig is up. Through empirical data we know that the new world order strikes when the Eris Point (22 Aries) is activated astrologically. The same is true for strong aspects of the Black Moon. This month provides the perfect storm of the two with the New Moon at the Eris Point (empowered even more so by the additional conjunction of Venus and Mars) and the Black Moon beginning the month-long opposition to the Galactic Center.

Remember that since the Black Moon is making the opposition to the Galactic Center, fears are naturally being triggered. Eris rules the battlefield and the battle is for the sovereignty of all people.

What is not understood is that this energy rails against power, control, and tyranny. Their motto is “bind Eris in chains,” but it simply isn’t possible. I discuss this thoroughly in my book on Eris (available here for free). More and more people will see the truth behind their actions and so their tricks will lose power.

If you are unaware that a drill was running simultaneous to the marathon, follow the story at infowars.

For us, we do what we do. We see clearly. We are not fooled. We hold to the ideal of freedom. We are not afraid. And we aren’t pulled from our center because a bomb could go off around us any minute and maim us. We don’t pontificate over the violence of humanity. This is a straight-up Archontic attack – nothing more. Don’t feed it. We are sad for those who are victims of this act. But we know exactly who and what is behind it.
