thought seeds

Don Ivan Punchatz

Fearlessly hopeful or foolishly fearless ?
Thought seeds.



I have so such on my mind this past week, symptomatic of Saturn (my ruler is Saturn Rx in 3rd thinking, rules hands) and Mercury (my MC planet, highball) in retrograde.

We are ALL feeling it:
Rewind, review, rework, re-invent, re-structure, reintegrate communication 

Restriction on Mercurial communication is part and parcel of natal Merc Rx; Saturn in Gemini, Virgo, 3rd or 6th; or Virgo, Gem on 10th: Mercury in 10 or Capricorn.

Only when Merc goes haywire does the world freak – omg WTF happened ?!?!
Communication breakdown…patience is called for.
 Oh how well do I know this.

Thought Funnel.

This very moment in and of itself makes me think of Stephen Hawking.

Stephen has a grand earth trine – Sun and Mercury Capricorn; Moon conjunct Neptune in Virgo; Saturn conjunct Uranus in Taurus.  Conjunctions are POWER OPERATING.

Stephen also has a T-Square with Mars is the focal planet in late degree Aries (leading pioneer in forward thrust); Mercury in the later degrees of Capricorn (achievement) opposing Pluto in Leo (metamorphic  expression).

He is fueled by so much to achieve and a “how – to – say” particularism that is message to Earth channelled by fire rushing into late restricted Earth.  God/goddess bless, I tear up, because in a small way, I am similar.  I asked for visuals because I tried to understand the words and theories that were beyond me, except in pictures.

I understand visuals so much more so than words: my typing is horrendous, my thoughts are moving beyond my ability to type.

Is this how you feel, what you encounter everyday ?  The ultimate funneling of Mercury restricted..onto the earth plane ?  If so, please allow me to thank you for being so patient while we try to keep up.


My world is better for you in it.
Thank you, Sir.
You are a hero of mine, yes indeed.

Titania’s Fortune Cards

Playing around with the idea of 1 card reading.  Distilled, concise.
Card on left represents Gemini energies surrounding us, card on right is the message from spirit at the bottom of the deck.  The crux of the sitch.  Intention: to direct us all towards the most benevolent outcome.

Rider Good news on the way, stagnant situations stirred up, a lucky card.
Foxneutral card; a call for being enigmatic, sly and cunning

Stone in carved wooden hand is Azurite.
Azurite is a copper carbonate mineral, monoclinic, often found in botryoidal forms.  It carries the frequency of the Ajna chakra (third eye).  Azurite increases intuition, insight, psychic awareness and dream visions.  It assists with the assimilation and retention of new information, deriving the truth behind hidden motives of ego – based actions.  Increases objectivity and integration of mental and spiritual energies

Now for the astro…

Gemini Venus Rx trine Saturn Rx in (Venus -ruled) Libra both trine Neptune in Pisces….shhhh…it’s a secret….keep it close to the vest, whatever you are thinking, doing or thinking of doing.  Let it percolate, simmer and stew awhile.

This Venus retrograde harkens back to the year 2004 echoes of that time will resurface during this Venus retrograde period.  

It occurs to me ~ Mercury and Saturn (eardrum, bones) rule hearing.
Venus Rx in (Mercury ruled) Gem, trine Saturn Rx in (Mercury ruled) Virgo trine Neptune.

Echoes, or reverb (Mercury + Neptune) of Venusian sounds from 2004. 

Good thing we have solid earth coming up to bat – foggy, Neptunian woo woo is all over the playing field.  Anytime now I expect Shoeless Joe will be popping out of the cornfield of dreams, lol.  What up Joe ?  Up for some Pitch & catch ?

Chiron opposite Mars in Virgo…healing from the past soOo Field of Dreams.

I used to live in Iowa, meditated with the Maharishi Mahesh Yogis, saw the American Gothic house, ate Rosanne Barr’s loose meat burgers, saw the big cornfield in the sky.  It’s near the Ertl factory where my Star Trek Enterprise model ship came from, and if you head west on I-80 you’ll see the Big Boy sculptures – the whole family – on the north side of the road somewhere around Des Moines.  Iowans are so practical, they all  seem earth sign to me.  Excessively normal.  Grounded.  No muss, no fuss.  Speaking of which….

Sweet sensate Taurus Moon is coming up to form a grand trine with Mars in Virgo and Pluto Rx in Capricorn at 9 degrees.  Can you feel the earth energy growing ?

Merkaba activate

Merkabas by Gneiss Moon

Mer (light) Ka (spirit) Ba (body)
These are egyptian words from the 18th dynasty.  Mer (light) specifically means two counter-rotating fields of light spinning in the same space. These electromagnetic light fields are always present, but grow stronger with meditation and specific breathing patterns.

Merkaba is a geometric representation of the bridge between the mind, body and heart; the spiritual etheric and physical bodies.

The Mer-Ka-Ba is composed of two intersecting, counter-rotating tetrahedra (triangular pyramid) in the figure of a three-dimensional Star Tetrahedron, or “Star of David”.

The center point of the spinning tetrahedron (pointing up and down) forms a “zero-point” construct that compels singular motion (wave of creation) to resonate with Universal Harmonics.

This harmonic convergence within the center of the body activates a rotation phenomenon similar to twelve-strand DNA and the upward spiral of evolution.

This spinning rotation has many useful applications in altering the bio-energetic construct of the body, mind and emotions.

For instance, the activation of the Harmonics alerts all 12 dimensional realms to open and connect throughout the unified field, in cascading layers of grids—spiraling wheels of light, sound and color. The pattern of “12 around 1” represents the alchemical vortex of consciousness that is the fundamental foundation for sacred geometry. (source)

Now you can readily see why I am thinking of Merkabas.
This is our sky at the moment.

Grand Trines, like Merkabas have to be activated.

We have a grand trine in Earth, physical manifestations are granted easier access at this time.
Another grand trine in primarily Air, with Neptune out of sign / element in its home in Pisces (water).  This is balanced emotionally based, spiritual, healing communication.

Let’s work it peeps !
