Disseminating Moon Phase – Moon in Capricorn

Ruling Mahavidya – Chinnamasta

JIM TUCKER (1934 – 2013) You will be missed and remembered.

As expected, the Moon approaching conjunction to the Galactic Center all weekend while the Black Moon was opposing it made for very complex energy. The tight conjunction of Saturn and the Earth only intensified the effects. The Moon will not be in a position again to affect the Black Moon/Galactic Center transit before the transit ends! Whew!

Wise owl Milly on Facebook asks about the statement in the last post that our experience and Gaia-Sophia’s experience are the same now. We are One now. We always were, but Sophia was still in that weird half awake/half nightmare state. She is fully awake now and engaged with us to co-direct the course of things. This is why the “awakening” is spreading like wildfire. Can you believe some of the conversations you are hearing from the most unexpected corners? We are in the middle of a grand visionary experiment with the experimenter (Sophia) herself. So the collective consciousness of humanity is sending and receiving information with her and the world of “the matrix” is crumbling. In the process, we are returning to sanity. It does not look like sanity yet, does it? It is going to take some time.

During the December 21, 2012 time, I discussed how everyone was on the playground with Sophia. We can see this now, four months later. Look at the way things are changing. There is no doubt that Sophia and Humanity are taking on the archontic control system now. I really did not expect the change to happen so quickly. The goddess is delightfully surprising.

Archons use Eris astrological aspects and Black Moon aspects to invade (strike) us. The harmonic and electromagnetic effects of the current Black Moon transit make it easy for them to slip into our consciousness and press us into reacting to make ourselves or others miserable. It’s stealthy action, too, because they come when the shadow is strongest, like this past weekend. Look at what transpired for you this weekend (where you had issues) and make a note in big, red letters so that as we come closer to the exact day of the transit, May 7, you will have an idea of what to expect. This past weekend’s energy foreshadowed it.

Control, control, control. Control remains in the forefront of all that is happening. The conjunction of Saturn with the Earth is taking control issues to the brink. Disengage immediately if you find yourself swept up in this.

Today, the Earth is located at the position known as “a fellowship supper reunites old comrades.” Connection with like-minded people will alleviate a lot of the pressure that is in play from the energy.

Through the muck of fear, we see indications that there is indeed a great deal about which to be hopeful. The divine beings in the Galactic Center (Sophia’s family) are beaming in the light of love to assist and support us and her. Let’s keep our focus on this and do our job by “grounding” the current within the collective of humanity. This is a good use of the control energy that is in effect.

There is light showing from the end of this Black Moon transit. Let’s follow it.
