Truthout Daily Digest Wednesday, March 26, 2014

I find it interesting that Democracy Now refers to the plot to kill Occupy leaders as only involving Occupy Houston when at the time, and in the newspaper reports originally, it was much broader-and actual harm was done to a person in California as well as in Houston with other attempts documented in Occupy groups around the country.

Even some “alternative” news seems to be part of that Orwellian revision of “facts” afterwards.

I hope people come together soon. While new age blogs and channels predicted a” tsunami of love” looking around us a tsunami of negativity and confusion seems much more visible at present.

Of Patients and Prices

A.W. Gaffney, Truthout: Conflicts inevitably arise as doctors enter the medical practice and become unavoidably entangled in the health care business, as currently financed. Best care for patients is balanced against the awareness that something might be awry with what prices they are being charged by more or less everyone in the industry.

Third Quarter Moon Phase: complete

Moon in Aquarius

Today is the last day of the current astrological and natural year. Tomorrow we enter the Balsamic Moon phase of the “Balsamic time of year.” Balsamic energy is magical in that it has the power to empower intentions that will be set during the next Moon phase – the New Moon, beginning Sunday, March 30. Balsamic Moon phase front-loads the energy for the New Moon. Since we have double Balsamic energy incoming, and double the power to affect the future, we will have a wise plan.

During the Balsamic Moon phase, we will be keeping “energetic vigil.” By this I mean that the mission is to “guard” and “ground” the field of consciousness. This means that we will need to be smarter. To do this, we will jump high above the fear and hold tightly to alignment with the planet. Our individual effort joins with the effort of others, creating a strong wave. We will make conscious, concerted effort to go beyond what is being pumped into the collective to prime consciousness with trauma-based mind control.

We can see this happening already. The barometer of human emotion is high right now. Mars retrograde adds fuel all on its own. Everyone feels that change is afoot, but no one can be certain what this will be. The uncertainty is good because humans are the wild card in the experiment and we have an opportunity to respond. How we choose to respond to shifting events and where we fall on the spectrum of love/hate for life determines everything.

If and when you feel the angst that’s incoming, this is your cue. Uranus is conjunct the upcoming New Moon. Uranus rules lightning and feels like lightning in the body. We are going to use this to electrifyinstead of being electrified. So we will “be” the lightning. Picture yourself like a lighting bolt striking the ground. You are firmly rooted with the planet. The planet is the “go to” for all things, especially when forces are trying to take us off balance. Sanity resides in nature. Channel the energy through you as it comes. It may be strong at times (anxiety, anger, inability to sleep, startle factor). Do not personalize the energy. Don’t take it on board and think there is something wrong with you.

Today’s energy is the energy for completion, rectification, revision, and realignment. Stand up tall, align your spine, and maintain grounding with the earth.

Gibbous Moon Phase – Moon in Virgo/Libra

Today it is very important to stay open to ideas or input that is completely out of the normal range of consideration. Information blows in from out of the blue and should be taken into account. This is Gaia-Sophia’s way of interacting (playing) with us. What are the new/different solutions and inspirations.that are presenting themselves?

Make sure you don’t mistake the feeling of being “off course” or “off track” as negative. Remember that a process of deep change and transformation is underway in preparation for a new activation at the next New Moon. Changes are happening at the energetic level. Beginning at the next New Moon and continuing througout that lunar month, dormant DNA and unutilized areas of the brain will engage. This progression has been happening at regular intervals for some time; now we are able to see when these “upgrades” will occur. So we are clearing out and releasing the past so that emotional blockages do not impede the fullest manifestation of this. The more we clear out now, the more we can experience the uplift. This means clearing out clutter. Clutter builds up in our bodies, minds, and surroundings. Clean out your closet, your desk, your body, your mind. Plow your inner and outer landscape for a complete refreshment. More on this as the time approaches.

As far as removing blocks that have turned into sore spots in the body, I was gifted with the Rumble Roller last week. I am not one to peddle products, but this has changed my life. If you invest in one, don’t be like me and overdose on it the first day (the muscle release was so intense that I couldn’t stop!). Take it slowly.

Finally, sincerity goes a very, very long way today – much farther than normal, and the conflictual energy that was dominant yesterday begins to abate. Enjoy the playground of life with Gaia-Sophia today!
