Fixing the Flow

infinity

All art is a kind of confession, more or less oblique.
All artists, if they are to survive, are forced, at last, to tell the whole story; to vomit the anguish up.

Liberation through Creation.

I have devoted 30 years of research to how creative people live and work, to make more understandable the mysterious process by which they come up with new ideas and new things. Creative individuals are remarkable for their ability to adapt to almost any situation and to make do with whatever is at hand to reach their goals. If I had to express in one word what makes their personalities different from others, it’s complexity.  They show tendencies of thought and action that in most people are segregated. They contain contradictory extremes; instead of being an “individual,” each of them is a “multitude.”  here

Fascinating. 

Pluto rules The Masses.
Cellular & Stellar
Within the Divine Will of Pluto burns the crux, the fulcrum.
Obsession or Possession
A nanosecond of dawning realization, the power play, the two-sided coin, the ability to hold opposites.
Turn obsession inside out – the destroyer becomes instead the inspired creator.

Hold thoughts, draw breath, make choices – all points of death and rebirth.
The creation drives you as much as you drive the creation.
This is the subtlety of Scorpio.

The powerful surrender to let energy flow.

Mudjekeewis, Spirit keeper of the West (element Fire) is Father of all the Winds, he provides homes for the Thunder Beings.

His energy is strong in twilight time and in autumn.

Soapstone, cedar, gifts of adulthood, maturity, using expertise and valued skills are found in the west.  The grizzly bear vibrates to the western spirit – bear is both fierce and gentle; active in summer light, and inactive / hibernating in the winter dark. 

Breathe in western energy at sunset to help you walk the path of balance and cultivate awareness and acceptance of the worlds of light and dark; of life and death. 

Twilight is the magick hour when movement between worlds is possible.
Twilight is spiritual, creative, energetic and attractive.

Breath, relax your body, lightly focus your mind on your goal . . .let the spirit energy of the West rise to meet you on your path . . .

::::::::::::::::::::
To estimate the number of minutes until sunset:

1. Stretch out both arms in front of you.
2. Place one hand above the other with the little finger of one hand on the horizon.
3. Count the fingers (not thumbs) needed to block the sky between horizon and Sun.
4. Multiply the number of fingers by 15.

Bending WillPower

Michael Whelan

Mailbag:
A reader with Sun square Pluto is searching for ways to accept power.

Dear reader, you already have power  – that is a fact that you need to accept  first and foremost.  Astrologically ANY contact between a luminary and Pluto IS powerful, your square just means you can’t easily accept it.  Yet.
First, it must be said with Plutonian power – it is most important to gain power over oneself, rather than use it to control others. 

Everything on earth has energy and vibrates with frequency.  Earth, rock, tree, bird, water, air, humans.  Earth vibrates slower, yet is very much energetically alive.
For instance, the sky above me just broke with lightning and rain, negative ions are in the air.  Use every opportunity you can to work with the natural earth forces around you – I just opened my door to bring more ions inside.  This ‘invisible’ energy is at work in and all around us.  If you want to tap it, and strengthen it, I will help.

This may seem obvious, but keep your physical body healthy.  Eat food that is natural, organic – avoid foods that are hard for your body to digest, as this uses more energy.  Hydrate often, keep your electrolytes replenished, exercise.  Be disciplined, restraint is actually quite freeing.  Find your Saturn and work it.

Mitakuye Oyasin.  We are all related.  Know your inherent worth.  You exist.  You are vital.  Still and focus on the energy of your own breath, heart and life coursing through you.  You are an intersection on the web of life.

:::::::::::::::::

We are all sparks of creation.  To bring the spark to a blaze, think of a moment in your life you were happiest.  Yes, you are going to create your Patronus.  Though be aware this is an Edgar Cayce reference source I am using.  Potter or Cayce – it works !

1. Imagine your happy event – identify what made it special – precisely what about the event  represents your highest spiritual joy and values ?  Got it ?  Make a small phrase to describe it.  This will be your ‘charm’, your ‘mantra’.  This is your thought, your moment crystallized into pure positive energy.  When you feel depleted, speak this phrase while imagining the moment that led you to choose it – feel the power behind the words, the emotion you are tapping when you say it aloud.

Thought + voice + positive intention = powerful energy raised

2.  The nature of energy is to move.
—-Keep the energy moving in your living environment.  Practice living simply.
 De-clutter, clean often.  Use scent, sound, water and fire to increase and clear the energy and keep it flowing in your home.
—-Keep the energy moving in your body through movement, exercise.
—-Keep the energy moving in your mind.  Read, do puzzles, learn new skills, approaches.  Take a different route, use your non-dominant hand to write or draw.

3.   Own your energy center.
—-You are in charge  of your charge.  Positive or negative, you raise the energy, or dampen it.  Energy by itself is neutral.  How you feel about it gives it charge – the human heart is electric.  Sun rules Leo, rules the heart – the emotional center of the human body. 
Where the thoughts and feelings go, energy flows.

The body is a miraculous thing – heart transplant patients report literally a ‘change of heart’ : attitudes, feelings and identity merges with another spirit – the heart donor.  See how powerful we are ?  Amazing physical creatures.  We are spirit manifested into matter.  haha in a typo I wrote spit – but spit has power too !  My mother-in-law always spit on her bait to bring fish.  When I am in the woods without a proper offering, I will say a blessing and spit.  True.

Anyway, think how heartbreak feels, it is an ache in the chest – our spirit (Sun) is weakened.  Sun square Pluto is a call for change in desires of some kind.  Pluto forces a change of heart, in some way – only you know how Sun square Pluto person  – you are being forced to change on a soul deep level.  You are metamorphosis manifest. 
I feel for you, I have Sun conjunct Uranus Pluto; Pluto trine Moon; eighth house Venus conj Jupiter in Leo (Sun rules).  Giant Neptuner in Scorpio.  I get it.  I totally get it.

Sun (positive) in square to Pluto (negative) means you need to increase your awareness of your own inherent power.  Sun is light, Pluto is dark – find your balance.  Focus your awareness on the dark within.  See it and own it.  Own both the light and the dark.  Life is both.

You choose where you want to dwell – to accept your power, Sun square Pluto, find your center.   Ground yourself.  Pay attention to your larger surroundings, (your place in the web) then focus on yourself.  Your breathing, your blood pulsing, your heart.  Go micro web, see ?  Find those electro-magnetic intersections on your web of life within as well.

Focus on, feel out, and define your bodies in space:
electrical, physical
emotional
etheric
thought
spiritual

Know who, where and when you are regardless of changing circumstances.  Be in your own place of power.  This is a daily thing, by the way – keep at it.  Live your life as a walking talking prayer to raising your power – intentions set  – locked and loaded – to metamorphose your inner tension between light and dark into personal power in a healthy way.

Be aware of course, we are in Uranus square Pluto times, we will all likely have to lock and re-load often, as times and circumstances are changing rapidly.   As circumstances change, so will directions and intentions – stay focused, light on your feet, be ready to bob and weave…

This is how you will bend power to your will – and in the end find your will power.

different dimensions

I am off for a few, cleaning and clearing the energy in my home.
Then I will return to organizing this site.  Thank you for your patience.

Neptune is flowing, soon to return home to Pisces on February 3, 2012.
She will relax in home waters for 14 years until 2024/5.

Neptune is my most highly aspected planet, and I feel the need to move and grow myself.  My Mars is in Sagittarius (my 12th house sign- Pisces natural home) conjunct Vesta (hearth and home, sacred fire) I follow my intuition, it is time.

Vesta is conjunct Venus in the sky now in the sign of Pisces.  She is activating my 2nd and 8th houses.  (What is mine and what belongs to others.)  Mars is Rx in Virgo, the need to sort and purge (Mars is applying to natal Pluto ! ) financial documents (Venus rules money) and a fire (Mars) will be lit tomorrow eve !  I will return soon after the weekend (USA) refreshed, invigorated, with energy flowing.  WoOo HoOo
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Find Vesta in your chart to find the home of the sacred fire in your belly.  Find your house of Pisces to locate where she is lighting the beacon for you now by transit.

Locate Mars Rx in Virgo, and any planets in Gemini or Sagittarius (squares- internal) or Pisces (opposite- others and compromise) for how Mars Rx is activating your chart.

Monday the 23 Mars Rx at 23 degrees Virgo, Mars direct at 3 degrees of Virgo on April 13, 2012.  Any planets between these degrees will be getting the spit & polish so to speak.  Mars is the blade, prune well to grow tall and lush ~


I thought I would try some Osho divination: The Book of Secrets.
One thousand and thirty-nine pages, and I got this …
This is soOo Mars Rx !
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Why ?  Why is fight so associated with love ? 
It is associated because the same energy can move in different dimensions.  You may call it love or hate.  They look opposite, but they are not so opposite, because the same energy is moving.
Energy can move, can change directions.  It can become hate, it can become love — the same energy.  And the same energy can move inward also, so whenever you have the impulse to do something (fight / anger energy), stop ! 
This is not suppression.  You are not suppressing anything, you are just playing with energy–just playing with energy and knowing the workings of it, how it works inwardly.

I know.

Hey baby, what’s your vibration ?
(heh. ok. maybe I won’t use that one.)

We are a recipe of energies when we are born, that’s our blueprint brew – our default setting.  What happens via transits and progressions are layers of growth due to new blends of energies being tossed into our default gumbo.  Over the years we stew and simmer through the richness of our life lessons until we become a wise sage.

To understand the elements, one must understand their vibrations, energy and octaves.

~~~~~~~
Pentacles = Earth      Cups = Water         Swords = Air      Wands = Fire
~~~~~~~
Earth signs are patient, practical, tied to the solid earth, the manifestors.
Taurus, Virgo, Capricorn

Water signs are the emotional, intuitive, secretive signs, the feelers.
Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces

Air signs are the communicators, thinkers, the intellectuals, the speakers.
Gemini, Libra, Aquarius

Fire signs are the energetic, passionate, courageous leaders, the inspiring.
Aries, Leo, Sagittarius
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


Now here comes the fun bit: 
Mercury is the planet of communication, thinking learning and sight.
The higher octave of Mercury is Uranus.  Knowing, intuition and clairvoyance.

Venus is the planet of personal love, touch and the cultured artist.
The higher octave of Venus is Neptune.  Divine love, inspired artist, psychometry.

Mars is the planet of personal will, destruction, outward energy.
The higher octave of Mars is Pluto. Divine will, rebirth after death, transformational inner energy.

All the signs and planets can express a high, or low vibration.

For instance, Low Neptune can be impractical, addictive, and escapist.
High Neptune, transcendent, compassionate and healing.

As energy rises in octaves it becomes faster, less dense… more free.


As sound and spoken word carry magical energy, so do thoughts for they are vibrations on a higher octave.
Bells clear energy in a room; thoughts of love, kindness and peace clear the mind.

Be mindful

If you can control the Prana you can completely control all the forces of the Universe, mental and physical. The Yogi can also control the Omnipresent manifesting power out of which all energies take their origin, whether concerning magnetism, electricity, gravitation, cohesion, nerve-currents, vital forces or thought-vibrations, in fact the total forces of the Universe, physical and mental. *
~~~~~~~~~~~
Two Vayus (air) : Prana (sun-inhale) and Apana (moon-exhale)
 Astrologically
Sun = life spirit, ego, the conscious
Moon= soul, instinct, emotions, the unconscious.

Astrology is the study of the relationship between the macro and microcosmos.  Hermetic law of correspondence states, “As above, so below, as within, so without.”  As vast as the numbers of stars in the sky, are the number of atoms in our bodies.  Concentrate and focus on the manifesting power you hold in each thought and breath and use them wisely.

“You will know… when you are calm, at peace, passive. A Jedi uses the Force for knowledge and defense, never for attack. ”  ~Yoda

The sage has the sun and moon by his side and the universe under his arm.
He blends everything into a harmonious whole.  ~Chuang Tzu
~~~~~~~~~~~~
The study of traditional Chinese medicine centers on the concept of the vital force or Qi as being not only within the human body, but in all living things. This Qi flows through the meridians of the human body to exchange, via the acupuncture points, with the Qi in the environment. Thus, the Qi of humans (the human energy field or HEF), and all living things, the earth,and the unified field are constantly exchanging. **

Matter meets energy

Pictured here is Saturn from the Cassini spacecraft : Specifically, Saturnian superbolts ~> radio (Uranus rules) bursts from Storm Alley in the planet’s southern hemisphere. This image shows one bright tempest in that area, the so-called Dragon Storm.

This pic came to mind this morning as I am feeling kinda edgy today.  Could very well be transiting Uranus getting closer to my natal Saturn.  Chart biggies for me.  Saturn rules my chart, and Uranus is oriental (rising before Sun) conjunct by 4 degrees.

Saturn is terra firma, being grounded, matter, form, it is a restrictive energy.  Uranus is a maverick; wild unpredictable energy, called by some ‘the awakener’.  Its polar axis is actually on a right angle to the other planets, it ‘rolls’ around its orbit.  (Go to the sixty symbols link for more on Uranus)  Uranus rules electricity, inventors and astrology among other things.  So I am thinking what will happen when restriction meets freedom !?

Some things came to mind… I was recently reading a book called ‘Earthing’, which covers the idea of making sure your body is physically connected to the Earth as much as possible so the body may gain healthy electrically charged ions through the ground.  Interesting idea, but it comes with a price tag for additional ‘gear’.
What I have is free…everybody loves free !   Just gonna pitch you some ideas~

Think of your body.  Ashes to ashes and dust to dust, right ?  Human bodies are full of minerals (that’s the Saturn bit)…such as potassium, sulfur, sodium, magnesium, and many more.

If we become more aware of our internal energy ( heart/ Sun–and Uranus/electro-magnetics in body), more aware of using the minerals we embody–we are already ‘grounded’.  Centering a deep breath and visualizing the energy thumping away in the chest -via the heart- is incredibly healing for the Electro-Magnetic Human Field.

Now for some Star Wars: “The Force is what gives a Jedi his power. It’s an energy field created by all living things. It surrounds us, penetrates us, and binds the galaxy together.“―Obi-Wan Kenobi
