REGULUS IN VIRGO
Rise to the occasion.
Stand proudly and take your place
in the evolution of human beings.
Regulus, I believe,
is the higher guide
of human destiny
and the unfoldment of human culture.
After 26,000 years
has reentered the sign of Virgo.
It thus represents the rise
to supremacy of the common woman
and the sacredness and
care and feeding of all beings,
and the safety and preservation
of the right of all living things to exist.
This cosmic event
will eventually lead also to
the realignment of religious doctrine and canon.
The male -oriented monotheism will give way
to a more female-honored
the Mother Universe
responsible not only for
the preservation of all living species,
organic and otherwise,
but as the fertile mother of
an entirely alive Universe.
Alrhough it Could
take 200 years to manifest
in the mass mind,
Regulus had human implications
both socially and personally.
As scary as this may be to acknowledge,
the entire population-
all the beings,
are facing an unimaginably devastating
ignored by and hidden by many,
that was unlleashed
by World WAR II.
THE LIGHT WE SEE NOW FROM
BEGAN EMITTING ITS RAYS
IN THE EARLY1940'S
and reaching us only now.
Obviously this doesn't affect
your mortgage payments
your love life this weekend,
or any other of the daily ablutions
we all perform to keep our lives going.
And yet everything we do
affects the future in ways
we can't possibly imagine.
The era of
Regulus in Virgo
will eventually be dedicated
to the restoration of purity
of all systems
andn the health and survival
of all living creatures on the Earth.
It calls for honoring all beings as sentient,
deserving of care and respect.
This will change all attitudes
toward animals and
what we have been calling
lower forms of life.
in every corner of the world.
Cycle that trash.
Regulus nobilis maximus.
Sol, solis nostri.
Lux lucis nostrae,
cor omniumque nostrorum
Honore et amore
great and noble Regulus
Sun of our Sun
light of our light
heart of all our hearts
we welcome you
with honor and love
into the sign of Virgo
May we contribute fully
to the service of
the evolution of humanity.
May we rise to participate
in the new era of Earth's role
in the Universe.
May we acknowledge
the purification and well being
of our living planet
and of all the creatures upon EARTH.
May we be sound of body,
mind and spirit.
May we find prosperity in fulfilling work.
May all sentient beings know joy.
This will be all the air time
I can spare for this
sad, crudely drawn
Before the real Movie comes on.
Do you realize what Donald Trump
is actually doing the Republican Party?
First of all he is only shaking the trees
to bring out all those
who think the way he does
and there are many.
Don't be too quick to call him an "asshole" .
First of all he gets off on it.
He is proud to be the richest "asshole"
in the neighborhood
, but also this is a fantastically choreographed
He has the attention of almost everyone
in United States and probably the world.
There's another side to it, however.
When the true candidates
finally emerge from the wings
for the feature presentation,
everyone will gather around them
with happy relief and gratitude,
the way you throw your arms around
your grandparents when they finally
arrive safely for Thanksgiving dinner.
Looking deeper though,
why would he suddenly so verbally,
so openly, so angrily, so rudely
and insensitively express everything
he has maybe had bottled up, l
ike a dog that has been chained to a post,
wanted to say and do
but never could ?
As The south node approaches
his solar Midheaven,
like many Geminis,
He knows his public life is over for now.
But even for , wild-eyed, loud-mouthed
his affect is definitely not normal.
I believe we could
learn that he has not been
at all physically well. Maybe hidden in the messages and behavior
lies a key to why
an aging narcissistic individual, Frustrated over loss of potency
would suddenly become so HARD ON so many people.

ENOUGH, ALREADY! IS THERE
GOING TO BE A REVOLUTION
OR ISN'T THERE?
Uranus Pluto Pluto Uranus.
So where is this big revolution
everybody's been talking about?
This was supposed to be
the next phase of the the 60's.
So, where is it?
There is more transparency;
more corruption revealed.
All this uproar seems to last
for a couple of days then,
What's up with that?
A homeless guy on Broadway swears
that the secret cabal
currently running the hidden
One World government
at this very moment
Is spraying chemicals over our heads
to render us helpless
to resist their evil take overl.
It is kind of funny, though.
When you look around and see
on pain killers and anti-anxiety drugs,
you could almost believe that stuff.
Making pot legal in the United States,
who knows ,
could be to keep people
high, dopey and lethargic.
Is that the reason this revolution
seems to be a big dud?
That's what the Broadway guy believes.
Such a big deal
this Uranus Pluto thing
Fact is, other than the weather
at the same time
Uranus Pluto could come and go
and seem to leave
the same injustices in place.
Revolutionaries, take heart!
it's all going to happen
but not as quickly as you think.
In astrology we say that
the slower moving planet wins,
mainly because its effects last longer.
So in March, 2015, The planet Uranus
will finally complete the square to Pluto.
Apart from a major disaster or two
will seem to be over.
Pluto will still be there in Capricorn.
Most of the same people will
still be in power,
and the regimes still in place.
it will seem that the abuses of power
face few if any consequences for
In some cases they will be vindicated,
because they were not found guilty.
In other cases manipulating methods,
political machinations and
further abuses will keep them in position.
Or seem to.
Pluto is Capricorn moves slower
and lasts longer than Uranus in Aries.
A worldwide social revolution
will occur, however.
just not how or exactly when
The already tottering patriarchy
will erode further
as Pluto moves toward the last
ten degrees of Capricorn.
As Pluto crawls toward
the terminator line of Capricorn and
the limb of Aquarius the mid-20s,
Uranus will arise again.
The will of the people shall rule.
None of this is anybody's fault.
It is the natural evolution of things
socially and personally.
When planets move through Capricorn
and into Aquarius, the cry is
Chaos or no chaos.
The wave of change
sweep over the world,
stronger than it seems to be now.
Some people welcome this news
and are cheered to hear it.
Others get nervous.
With damned good reason.
All too often a revolutionary regime
can be more harrsh and ferocious
than the regime it overthew.
Nobody can attempt to predict
how these transformations will manifest.
We have to be willing
to welcome the cycles of
global and personal shifts
as outgrowths of our own evolution
and members of a collective society.
We c always have to keep faith
in our ability as conscious human beings
to welcome new ways
and our capacity to adapt to them.
We have to remember
that we will always be able
to find shelter in the notion
of the unity we find in
respecting each other's right
a life of
of our personal destiny
love for all beings
on all worlds

Uranus square Pluto
This will mean breaks with tradition,
break ups and changes of direction.
It's going to create permanent rifts
as people go their separate ways.
Goals change radically
and separations, permanent ones
are never stress or pain free.
Those people who represented youth
back in the 1960's
conjunction of Uranus and Pluto
had to submit to derision and ridicule
on the part of their parents
and other adults of the
over 30 establishment.
believed in human social evolution--
that we were moving toward
a better world and better society.
We are now at the juncture
of that conjunction
Uranus squares Pluto.
The notion of a better society
is being severely challenged.
It seems that humanity has stood still
or worse, going backwards
. There is still war, greed hunger,
hatred, prejudice and ignorance,
as they're always has been
and always will be.
But look around us.
Do you not see a change
in human relationships,
the role of women, our awareness
of the planet we live on,
and attitudes toward the right to love,
since that's scandalous moment
on national TV
when Captain Kirk kissed Uhura
while the sensors fainted?
We are approaching
a serious social crisis
no joke don't kid yourself.
Change on a global
planetary and even galactica level is
not going to be comfortable.
It operates deep into your
personal life as well.
Growth now is going to mean
transplanting, moving against
the established normal
and doing what is expected.
The turn in this road
is going to be a sharp one
Building on and
learning from your experience
is going to demand you
take a giant risk
and go your own way.
We all have a responsibility to ourselves
to challenge tyranny or
misconduct of those
to whom we have entrusted authority.
We have a right to demand
that they perform justly
We must always respect
their respect for tradition
and effort to maintain
an ordered society,
but we must never be afraid
to challenge any betrayal of trust.
In your own private life,
it hits us all
right in the face.
Long term relationships
may be shattered forever. Force Majeure is entering
each of our lives
in a deeply personal way,
requiring enormous courage
in making choices
to pursue a more
conscious and fulfilling life.
It's scary to go
where you don't know
where you're going
or how to get there.
Exploration of the next step,
however, IS the next step.
It is as dangerous
and intimidating as it seems.
Whether you're single,
part of a couple or a team,
A decision is to be made
all by yourself
from your own heart.
Severance from the expected path
is in excruciating, mystifying and
Until you accept the fact
that you must move forward
and now go
where you have never gone before.
"Hey,Mike, can I ask you a question?"
I look across Broadway and there he is.
The guy seems to pop out of
nowhere, I swear.
Even across the noisy traffic
I can hear every word.
"Seriously hold on.
Can I just ask you one question?""
I figure he's out again.
They pick him up periodically
and lock him up for three weeks,
just to get him back on his meds.
It's Broadway Joe,well,
at least that's what I call him.
Although he has been diagnosed,
MRI'ed and shrunk 100 times,
he has never committed any crime,
other than driving other people nuts with
He pops up, disappears and pops up again
with what first seem like
Now that I have trained myself
to listen, I realize that he is
continuing a conversation
from our last encounter.
"Didn't I tell you?" he asks,
just missing getting hit by a bus as he
crosses the street.
He unwraps a candy bar
and offers me half.
" What did I tell you? You see?
You got to listen to me.
crazier than Sean Handjob
or Racial Madoff.
You should pay attention to me.
I told you years ago this was going to happen."
I notice that even when I speed up
the pace and try to seem
as if I'm in a hurry,
he's right there beside me yapping.
And his tone is so credible and seductive
I'm drawn in against my will.
"What did you tell me, Joe,
"The whole thing--
you've got to watch the signs!"
That makes me think
I wonder what is sign he is
he never would tell me
I know Neptune has to be in there
somewhere, but I can't quite figure him.
"The signs", he says. "Synchronicity.
Charlie Manson in the news
---helter -skelter don't you get it?"
I roll my eyes and speed up the pace.
"No no not really
Charlie Manson or helter-skelter
but it's a scam,
it's a total fake this whole thing!
Racism, Man! it's no better or worse
than it's ever been.
it's a distraction, Man."
Okay I think this is enough.
"Well, Joe I got to go. What's the
question you said you had to ask me?"
"Okay," he says. " Here it is.
I want you to think about this,
Just in case there's a surprise quiz you ready?"
"Okay, why do you think,
think deep now,
why do you think
they are arming the police
with military weapons huh?"
He smiles and winks
into the Broadway mob..
What if there’s a hole in my thinking?
My whole plan could fall apart.
The big shebang begins with the notion
that I must preserve a security
I have created for myself,
founded on fear that I have engendered
in the people, and the belief that I will protect them.
Protect them from what?
The dread of fiscal devaluation
and the loss of their property.
If I can convince them I’m saving them from those two things,
they’ll keep me in power.
But what if they stop for a second or two
and feel a yawning emptiness and a widening gulf
between the good lives I am convincing them
they are leading and the non-existence treadmill of slavery
they are actually treading on?
It could be brilliantly successful for a while.
I, as slavemaster, produce products
I tempt them to consume or possess.
I hire expert hypnotists to seduce them
into buying my wares, for which they are willing
to go deep into debt, forcing them
to seek employment at low wages
in my factories which produce more items I entice them to buy.
Their ability to purchase my products
leads them to think they are prosperous and secure.
And the dissenters? Let them talk.
Fortunately I also have surrounded myself
with a coterie of attractive looking,
elegant and educated young people
who know exactly how to make dissenters
seem like embittered failures or evil interlopers,
so no worries. Everybody’s happy. Until…
The fallacy of believing in security
cracks right through the façade.
What if the moment comes when the people
feel that I am no longer able to protect them
from the fears I have helped to create?
The moment that dissension outweighs belief
in my ability to protect them, my regime ends.
What if security is a fallacious premise
on which to build anything, because it is a comfortable illusion
that keeps us from some other truth?
The longer I can make them think I’m protecting them,
the safer I will always be.
What if it dawns on them that no matter
how stable it seems, everything is in flux?
Eventually somebody will see that even
if they nail the furniture to the floor,
the tornado could still take away the whole house.
If my whole premise is fallacious, my whole project could crumble.
In that case, what would be a grumble by kooks,
misfits, terrorists, and the disenfranchised
could become an outcry for radical change by an awakening populace.
Jesus Christ, then what would happen?

THE NATURE OF THE COMING REVOLUTION
In some crude circles
they call it a pissing contest.
Gamesmanship, however, is a more polite term.
However you look at it,
the consequences of the
are potentially devastating.
The implications are more far-reaching
than most human beings imagine.
It’s not just happening
on the world’s political stage.
It’s hitting us all.
People are being ripped
from the lives they have been leading.
Although many deny and resist,
some individuals are awake,
able to hear the bell tolling,
even under the din of
media fairy tales they are being told.
They are able to embrace
the enormity of the change
that is coming
with an understanding
that it has been coming for a long time.
Now new responses must be found
to situations we never dreamed of.
To grasp the situation
we have to learn to think
in bigger picture terms.
Not just about how you are going to
live the rest of your life
or how you want to live the rest of your life,
but where we fit in
as sentient beings
among the numberless that exist.
Actually you have to think in cosmic terms.
A new existence that lies ahead
requires the shedding of so many thoughts,
hopes, dreams and images
we are used to seeing
in futuristic science-fiction movies and books.
The alteration of our perception
involves a wrenching ourselves away
from notions that most of us
have been taught to cling to.
Whether it is your favorite hat
you’ve been wearing since college,
or a chair you’ve been sitting in
since you moved into your house,
–a job, people,
anything you have gotten accustomed to,
everything we have thought of
as real is in the process
of shifting permanently.
You’re not going to wake up one morning
and everybody and everything will be gone.
But you have to be armed
with the knowledge
that those two roads in a yellow wood
you’ve heard tell about
are right there in front of you,
and it sure as hell is time
to take the one less traveled.
For you. For me.
For everybody on Earth.
Why should you have to?
You and I
and the rest of the whole world
are in a total uproar,
and it helps if you can start thinking
in terms outside yourself.
Cosmic forces are causing stresses
and enforcing change,
not only in each of our lives,
but on the grandest scale imaginable.
It’s not the end of the world,
although it may seem like it.
It is the effect of the Grand Cardinal Square,
involving Mars, Jupiter, Uranus Pluto,
and actually some other heavenly bodies as well.
Phenomena are occurring now that seem unnatural,
when in fact they are quite natural.
On political and social levels,
the danger of economic/ecological collapse
looms before us.
Who made this happen?
The greedy skunks who grow more voracious
with the passage of each day?
Military and government leaders ,
headed by the decrepit patriarchy,
aided by naive, witless female spokespeople,
in their pathetic, eleventh hour attempt
to find solutions to famine, overpopulation,
and rising social unrest,
believing as they do
that subjugation of the masses
will itself solve humanity’s crisis,
as they fight the inevitable realization
of their smallness in a vast Universe?
Who is at the bottom of this?
The famed legendary Illuminati,
the Masons or the “terrorists
–or anyone else we wish to demonize?
Extraterrestrial aliens who even now watch us
as we sleepwalk through our lives?
Even as we honor the magnificence
of our intellectual, artistic, scientific
and technological achievements,
we must acknowledge our omission
of other vital elements.
In our mad, misguided belief
that we could make our lives easier,
we have stomped on our humanness,
betrayed the essence of our life
and betrayed our true purpose here.
It’s all a natural result
of the civilization we have constructed.
It is the inevitable fallout from
a society gone mad with anxiety
in the face of collapsing religious myths
and painful intellectual
and moral devaluation.
Astrology is not an excuse.
It’s an explanation of phenomena
that have led us to the brink
of an almost unbelievable awareness.
Everything we have done before
has brought us to where we are today.
It is what we do
from this point on that will count.
Every living being on the Earth,
sober, drunk or otherwise
The unfolding events
will impact us personally and individually
in ways that boggle our minds
and demand a massive effort
to creative adjustment
in embracing a new reality.
On a global, environmental level,
as Nature asserts its impassive supremacy,
all beings will conform
to its uncompromising imperative, even
if the goofballs running things
will try to convince us otherwise.
In the end,
the Grand Cross in Cardinal Signs
will of course be no more than
another set of planetary phenomena.
Viewed in perspective, however,
it will mark a permanent change
in the matrix of terrestrial existence.
We are not merely in the middle
of a spell of bad weather,
or helpless victims of one more
sad power play
carried out by government
or financial officials
who couch their greedy antics
in charades of “helping” others.
The Coming Revolution
will not NOT be personified by
romantic Mme Defarges knitting sweaters
or handsome, wounded men
with bandaged foreheads
arm in arm singing marching songs
with trained voices
bitching about injustice.
This is a change in the world mind.
is in the process of encompassing
the entire civilization of which we are a part.
We happen to be witnessing
an existential upheaval of tsunami proportions.
When does it happen,
how long does it last
and is it good or bad?
From an astrological point of view
when Pluto nears the end of Capricorn
in the early twenties,
the compulsive obsession with control and order
will come to an abrupt end as
Pluto approaches the sign of Aquarius.
Maybe Nature and the entropy surrounding it
will bring balance to authoritarian paranoia,
as the waves crash upon the shore of society.
Neptune’s supremacy in Pisces will prove
that the oceans always win in the end.
Do not expect all members of the human race
to drop sobbing to their knees
and apologize to each other.
People evolve at different rates.
Because of their own histories and inner lives,
they respond differently to different external stimuli.
So don’t look for world peace.
Expect human change,
and that is never comfortable.
It depends upon each individual’s ability
to see where we truly fit into
this vast web of sentient conscousness.
Be sure of this, however:
This is a worldwide, cultural revolution.
It’s going ot take a while
to get through the thick heads
of the schmucks who still think
Mother Nature is their bitch.
For the time being surveillance will get tighter.
The struggle over dollars, yen, rubles
and the flow of information
will continue, as will the battle
against ubiquitous cancer.
Obama? Hillary? Jeb Bush?
All the altruistic-sounding,
well meaning rhetoric
is about as nourishing
as a s’mores.
From Israel/Palestine, Somalia, Venezuela,
to little towns in Iowa,
everywhere and everyone
No one person in power today
has the knowledge or authority
to bring about the transformation
that is needed.
It has to come from inside.
It is not about one leader.
It will not be by some splashy,
seductive demagogue with big hands,
white teeth and good cheek bones.
The demonization of those
who threaten the veracity of world propaganda
(doesn’t matter which country)
will go on to continue its desired effect
of instilling fear in the masses
and keeping money
pouring in to feed the ravenous
Mouth of the Monster of Military Defense.
We will still be told
to return to our homes,
things are getting back to normal,
as the disconnect widens
between our instinctual perceptions
and the hypnotic tunes
our leaders and the pharmaceutical companies
are singing to us.
But the dawn of evolution is inevitable.
Whether the whole thing represents
a macabre and unholy alliance
between a cabal of military freaks
and nouveau zillionnaires
is any survivalist’s guess.
But who knows?
Now that even high-ranking
religious leaders are coming around
on the subject of
intelligent life in the Universe,
and our place in it,
for all we know
it will ha-ha be
the kooky Ancient Alien Theorists
who turn out to be right.
What is certain?
Life on Earth is scratching
on the inside of an enormous egg.
It is rather a wave of new awareness,
morality and our place among
all beings everywhere
that has to overtake
the philosophy of millions of people,
at least as powerfully as
the combined efforts of Moses,
and other prophets
did in their day.
But it cannot really be calculated
or accurately predicted astrologically.
To raise humanity
out of self-destructive adolescence,
it will take an opening of consciousness
on a gigantic scale
to remind us of our noble presence
and purpose in this vast sea of stars and planets.
It will take an epiphany of unimaginable magnitude.
It will happen. It has to happen.
Even now it IS happening.
All over the world
there is an odd
among many animals
and thousands of people.
People are looking into
each other's eyes
who we really are.
still swallow deer,
lions have been
cuddling with bears.
dogs and dolphins
have been chilling together.
Cows are enjoying jazz trumpets,
and cats demanding Mozart.
Pockets of human sleepers
are waking up,
that lie out there.
the Cyborgs of the future

where tableaux on display

GRAND CARDINAL CROSS
RIGHT THERE IN YOUR LIFE
AND IT AINT COMFORTABLE
27 march 2014
In the ring
two aging wrestlers
circled each other,
drooling and snarling,
like dinosaurs on display.
A nasty rumor claimed
that little did the spectators know,
their eyes glued to the bogus match,
that the joke was on them,
for at that very moment,
secret deals were being made
to strip them of everything they treasured
and rob their homes.
