Saturn into Sagittarius - Mercury Retrograde in Libra - Jupiter in Virgo Opposite Neptune in Pisces

From Wednesday through Friday, THREE major astrological shifts are occurring! 

(1) Saturn finishes in Scorpio until 2041 and enters Sagittarius through Dec 2017
(2) Mercury turns retrograde in Libra (Sep 17 - Oct 9) 
(3) Jupiter in Virgo opposes Neptune in Pisces (a cycle that initiated in 2009).

We are FINISHED with the karmic 'closet-cleaning' experience that has lasted almost 3 years as we've been digging DEEP to uncover our darkest and most PAINFUL aspects of SELF-destruction so that we can now LIVE according to our personal TRUTH without FEAR! Like Andy Duphresne in "The Shawshank Redemption" (1994), we have now ALL 'crawled through a river of shit' and come 'out clean on the other side'. And if we have made it this far, CONGRATS!..Saturn leaves Scorpio on Thursday evening not to return until 2041!

And symbolically so, the Moon spends Wednesday morning through Friday evening in the sign of Scorpio as well, almost as if it is serving as the FINAL sweep of the closet that has now been THOROUGHLY cleaned and which is ready to be utilized in a more APPROPRIATE manner for the rest of our journeys going forward.

Back in mid-late 2009, Jupiter joined Neptune in Aquarius to initiate the latest Jupiter/Neptune cycle of EXPANDED IDEALS for the FUTURE and for our unique offering and PLACE in the world. We had high HOPES and were riding almost 'magical' waves of synchronicity and opportunity that were presented to us at that time. And when Uranus entered Aries in 2010, our CONFIDENCE in our unique offerings SURGED as we looked for ever more outlets and opportunities to contribute. What exciting times they were!

However, the square between Uranus in Aries and Pluto in Capricorn from June 2012 through April 2015 combined with Saturn in Scorpio from October 2012 through September 2015 represented a time of collective RESTRUCTURING as well as personal SOUL SEARCHING where PROGRESS was halted in exchange for PREPARATION for a new phase. So, the CONFIDENCE and MAGIC that fueled and INSPIRED us onward in 2009 and 2010 has seemed to have been 'cut-off' from our own personal ACCESS over the past several years leaving us QUESTIONING our intuitive and creative impulses.

As FRUSTRATING and DEMORALIZING as these past few years may have been for some of us, this time has actually served a purpose. Back in 2009-2010, we were merely caterpillars who were DREAMING of LIVING as butterflies. And now with Jupiter in Virgo opposing Neptune in Pisces and CULMINATING their cycle that initiated back in 2009 and with Saturn moving into Sagittarius, these dreams ARE beginning to MATERIALIZE as we are starting to DO the things in our lives that are aligned with our own personal TRUTHS!

Just like with the caterpillar that MORPHS into a butterfly, we too have had to enter a CHRYSALIS and TRUST that melting into unrecognizable 'goo' would lead to our eventual TRANSFORMATION into the butterfly lives that we had CREATED with our THOUGHTS and INTENTIONS back in 2009-2010!

And with all of the WAITING, disappointment and potential CAVING in to our ideals that may have occurred over the past few years, PATIENCE may be at a premium just now. Yes, it can feel like we have WINGS or that we are finally FREE from prison and that we want to do ALL of the things that we had only dreamed of several years ago, but it’s important to remember that Rome was NOT built in a day!

Virgo is an energy associated with DAILY practice and taking EVERY STEP...CAREFULLY and deliberately! And with last weekend's first Solar Eclipse in Virgo since Regulus entered Virgo in 2012 combined with Jupiter's presence in Virgo from August 2015 through September 2016, Venus' stationary retrograde on Regulus in Virgo back in July, Venus' pending rendezvous with Mars in Virgo in early November and finally the shift of the Moon's north node into Virgo in late November through the spring of 2017, I would say that the message is clear regarding the style of MANIFESTING our dreams...SLOW AND STEADY WINS THE RACE!!

Rather than losing our patience, let's choose to be GRATEFUL that we have the OPPORTUNITY to savor EVERY step along the way toward our IDEALS! If we never lose SIGHT of our dreams and we are CAREFUL to ensure that every seemingly SMALL step that we choose to take is oriented toward the APPROPRIATE direction, then we will bear WITNESS to the FORMATION of our own CREATIONS from the ground-up!

And there is no need to WORRY about the actual TIME that this may require of us. Butterflies operate on a different time and space REALITY than caterpillars. And as CERTIFIED ‘butterflies’, we are no longer required to commit to one tree to CRAWL toward and CLIMB each tree to the end of each branch that we are also committed to in order to score a leafy lunch to which we are LIMITED. Instead, we can FLOAT effortlessly from leaf to leaf and CHOOSE from an abundance of both tree AND leaf options that serve our intentions…while looking BEAUTIFUL in the process! Taking step-by-step DELIBERATE action toward our ideals doesn’t sound so onerous anymore now does it? :)

Alright, so all of this talk about being CAREFUL and taking our time to CREATE our dreams more appropriately leads me to the last energetic aspect of this VERY important week. Yes, Mercury (the ruler of Virgo!) turns retrograde in Libra from Sep 17 through Oct 9. And the TIMING couldn’t be more appropriate!

All Mercury retrogrades are periods for RE-doing, RE-thinking, RE-viewing and RE-adjusting EVERYTHING in our lives! As Mercury moves in retrograde motion, the ILLUSION OF SEPARATION is temporarily dissolved and we are simultaneously INVITED to RE-connect to the universe and all of its abundance of possibilities. This is why our connection devices such as phones, computers, automobiles etc. can be apparently DISRUPTED. They only SEEM to be less than functional because we were never really separated in the first place and therefore never REQUIRED these devices to make our connections!

Specifically speaking, this retrograde of Mercury will occur in the sign of Libra. Therefore, most of our RE-adjusting during this period will be associated with our RELATIONSHIPS and how we PRESENT ourselves to others. We will be RE-negotiating the terms within which we operate with others. For the next few weeks it will also be important that we OPEN up and LISTEN to the feedback from others and perceive it as a RE-flection of our self-presentation. We have the opportunity to learn A LOT about ourselves in the process.

It will also be important for us to ASSESS the people in our lives regarding WHO is a valuable asset relative to our GOALS and our futures versus who simply serves as a continuation of our outdated PERSONAS that we once believed we had to PROVIDE for others in order to be accepted and LOVED by anyone outside of us. In the latter case, it may be time to reluctantly RELEASE some people in order to LIGHTEN our load as we FLOAT toward our next endeavors…

Some of us may even be tempted to JUMP into new personal and/or business associations during this period as people that we meet may give us the feeling that these situations are a RE-union of souls! And while it is VERY possible that we indeed ARE meeting some very important people including our ‘soul-mates’ and such, it will be important to ‘take it SLOW’ and let whatever needs to be ironed out get ironed out before we fully engage in these new associations.

By the time we reach October 9, when Mercury shifts back into direct motion, Venus (the ruler of Libra) will be re-entering the sign of Virgo as it finishes up the shadow period from its recent retrograde (Jul 25 – Sep 6). At that time, it may be CLEARER regarding who is going to WORK for us and which self presentations are APPROPRIATE for our future intentions. If we meet anyone that feels IMPORTANT during the next few weeks, we may also begin to see at that time HOW we can initiate an appropriate partnership with these persons moving forward.

Then when Mars stimulates last weekend’s Solar Eclipse in Virgo in late October followed by Venus joining with Mars in Virgo AND Mercury finishing up in Libra just a few days later on the first day of November, we will be finding PRACTICAL outlets for any new WORKABLE associations and realistically RE-leasing any unworkable situations from our lives! It’s time to GET TO WORK with the people aligned with our path, to properly release those that are out of alignment with our intentions and to ENJOY ourselves in the process!

A September to Remember: Choosing Peace Amidst Distraction


The fixed star Regulus will be in Virgo for the next 2,000+ years, the Moon’s north node will be in Virgo for 18 months starting in November and Jupiter will be in Virgo through September 2016 suggesting a burgeoning time of COMMON SENSE and gradual step-by-step approaches to creating ORDER and the manifestation of our dreams. So, we have the opportunity to perceive the next several weeks as the universe conspiring FOR us by providing us with the opportunity to get into the Virgo spirit right ‘off the bat’! And with last weekend’s Solar Eclipse in Virgo and Venus’ re-entry into Virgo on Oct 9 as well as its connection with Mars in Virgo on Nov 1, we are off to a well ORGANIZED start to this process!

So, remember that it’s okay to forget the arduous times that we have experienced being a caterpillar for most of our lives and as the transformational ‘goo’ within the chrysalis over the past few years. Instead it’s appropriate to HONOR each moment of our NEW timeline like the butterflies that we ARE as we enjoy both OUR own colorful beauty and the beauty of the landscapes upon which we CREATE our dreams piece by piece with DELIBERATE precision! And with this advice and our COMMITMENT to the process, our goals CAN be achieved in virtually NO time at all…CONGRATS to ALL of us!


This weekend's Solar Eclipse in Virgo opposes Chiron in Pisces and trines Pluto in Capricorn. Also, Mercury in Libra is close to a sextile to Venus in Leo and Jupiter in Virgo builds to an opposition with Neptune in Pisces as we approach next week's shifts of Mercury into retrograde motion as well as Saturn into Sagittarius.

This eclipse reminds us of our collective WOUNDS surrounding our perception of INSIGNIFICANCE in the greater world.The weight of the world feels HEAVY when we unconsciously EXPECT ourselves to 'make a difference' that reaches EVERYONE!

And while we can feel the HEAVINESS and the pain that this brings up, its important to realize that the purpose of this eclipse during the last few days of Saturn in Scorpio is to allow us the opportunity to RELEASE this energy so that we can move forward toward the activities that SERVE both our souls and the greater world!

Our responsibility with this energy is to ACCEPT that our 'little' part in the world IS worthy and to actually take STEPS toward our TRUTH under the assumption that what we DO in the world DOES make a difference even if we cannot see the RESULTS immediately...

This summer's Venus retrograde from early Virgo back into Leo has allowed us to REevaluate the worthiness of our ROLE in the world with the activities that we DO on a daily basis. Maybe we don't realize just how much influence we DO have?

And before Mercury goes retrograde in Libra next week, we have the opportunity to begin the process of REassessing the 'roles' that we HAVE played with others and whether these still serve OUR needs as well...
In childhood, we unconsciously fall into roles for others based mostly on the FEARS associated with survival. "If I am not THIS way for others, then I will not be loved or accepted by them!". It can FEEL as though the WORLD will fall apart if we choose to discard our old roles when in actuality it is our insistence on HOLDING onto these roles as our IDENTITY which prevents our TRUTH from leading the way...and which prevents us from JOINING with others on a similar soul PATH!

It may be PAINFUL to contemplate it but our fears that we will have 'nothing to DO' in the world if we simply ARE who we are CAN be released! And NOW is the time...

If we instead FOCUS on our SOUL ROLE in the world rather than on the perceived role of our EGO and choose to RElease the attachments to BEing what we perceive others WANT us to be FOR them, then the OPTIONS for our authentic PARTICIPATION in the world will EXPAND and the people and partnerships will OPEN with them!

Jupiter in Virgo expands the TASKS when we release the PAST!..i.e. the past of putting the weight of the ENTIRE world on our shoulders. And combined with Saturn entering Sagittarius for the next two years, it is time to 'walk our talk' and FOCUS on living our truth in EVERY action as our options to do so become more ABUNDANT!

With Mercury in Libra and retrograde for most of the period from now through the end of October, we will be FACING and releasing our outdated unconscious 'survival' ROLES and beginning to MERGE with those souls with whom our TRUE roles can shine forth!

Leading up to Halloween, Mars will stimulate the degree of this eclipse, followed by Mercury exiting Libra and Mars joining Venus in Virgo in the first couple days of November. By then, based on our WILLINGNESS over this period to align our TASKS with our SOULS, we will be JOINING with others on a similar level as we begin working WITH each other rather than FOR each other!

So, over this period, if we just focus on OUR piece of the puzzle, we will NATURALLY and effortlessly join FORCES with like-minded souls as WE begin making the difference we had always DREAMED we could make! And, in the process, we will be HEALING the world...PEACE by PIECE...;)

Venus Retrograde: Taking the Best and Leaving the Rest

Venus Retrograde
July 25, 2015 - September 6, 2015
14° Leo - 1° Virgo
(Shadow from June 21 through Oct 9)

Unlike, Mercury which shifts into retrograde motion roughly three times every calendar year, Venus only shifts into this phase approximately once every 18 months or so giving us an opportunity to CONNECT to the highest VALUE of our soul ESSENCE!

This is why these periods tend to be times when we are reviewing our RELATIONSHIPS with the PEOPLE, PLACES and ACTIVITIES that occupy most of our time. Time is PRECIOUS after all and its better spent engaging with the people, places and activities that SUPPORT our souls rather than with those which indenture our bodies and energies in fulfilling the expectations of what others want FROM us.

It's one of THOSE summers I guess! the summers of 2007, 1999 or even 1991 to be more specific. This is because the planet Venus has an 8-yr synodic cycle and from late July through early September of those years, Venus shifted into retrograde motion in nearly the EXACT same degrees as it will over roughly the same period this summer!

Does this mean that we can expect a complete DEJA VU of our experiences from these summers of the past? Not exactly. Though we CAN expect that a similar part of our lives WILL be under review and contemplation with regards to the themes of RELATIONSHIP in every facet of our lives. What kinds of job changes, relationship adjustments and/or moves etc. did we experience during the mid-late summers of 1991, 1999 and/or 2007?

This year, Saturn has returned to the sign of Scorpio (June 14 - Sep 17) which covers the entire Venus retrograde period and suggests that this time our contemplations will run VERY DEEP and involve some PERMANENT endings on certain levels! We will be PURGING potentially decades worth of bad HABITS and erroneous 'signals to the universe' that we are NOT WORTHY. The hard and honest TRUTH as to WHY we have made unconscious choices to dishonor our own VALUE and WORTHINESS just may be REvealed! And, with conscious attention, REleased for ALL time...past, present AND future!

In addition to Saturn hovering over the final degrees of Scorpio during this period, Venus will also form a long-term conjunction with Jupiter in Leo/Virgo, a trine to Uranus in Aries and a square to Saturn in Scorpio/Sagittarius. These aspects have already initiated and will be active through mid-late October.

These next three months will provide us with the opportunities to METHODICALLY release all of the people, places and things in our lives that are no longer VALUABLE to us on our now more authentic personal journeys!

Sometimes when its time to LET GO, life swoops in and takes us by surprise forcing us to adapt to losses that are GOOD for us but which we could not see for ourselves at the time. And yet we often find that we feel GRATEFUL that things worked out the way that they did...if only in RETROspect.

Ironically, RETROspect will be unnecessary during this Venus RETROgrade period as the REleases we experience are likely to be the result of CAREFUL deliberation and CONSCIOUS choice rather than as the result of shocking adaptations to life's surprises!

Like going through the closet, we are spending the next three months sifting through the various COMPONENTS of ourselves and making conscious decisions regarding what was NEVER ours and needs to be RELEASED and what IS ours and needs to be re-INTEGRATED within ourselves in order for us to experience our WHOLENESS and the HEALING that results from it!

The more authentic and SOVEREIGN we have become, the more the universe is asking us to be ACCOUNTABLE for the lives that we create as a result of our own conscious DECISIONS! And with these decisions we are ensuring that we are EXPANDING our ability to EXIST as unique entities that SERVE the world in ways that absolutely SUPPORT our SOULS!

On a global level, the star Regulus moved into the sign of Virgo in early 2012 and signified a major shift in POWER STRUCTURES in the world. Regulus had been in the sign of Leo for over 2,000 years going back to the start of the Roman Empire! And the Roman Empire modeled EXACTLY what we would expect in terms of how POWER has been structured from that point forward. Everything from gender inequalities, endless war to competitive exploitation and sexual debauchery have all represented LEOnian power paradigms.

And perhaps these attributes were most pronounced in the world between the late 1930's through 2012 when Regulus occupied the 'critical degree' (i.e the last degree) of Leo and this energy tendency was AMPLIFIED. Just look at how much POWER (i.e. money) we have allowed to go to the '1%' and how much access to this money/power we have given to celebrities who COMPETE for a living (i.e. sports) and who glamorize and alter their bodies (i.e. Hollywood)! Not too mention that nuclear weapons were first detonated during this amplified LEOnian power period as well!

However, with Regulus now in Virgo, we are only a few years into an over 2,000 year period that promises to be VERY different than any of us currently living have experienced! VIRGOan power paradigms involve VALUING power through outlets like HEALING, common sense negotiation, feminine principles, environmental consciousness and SERVICE to humanity. And though it may take a couple of generations to SHAKE off the Leonian paradigms of power from our psyches (i.e. 'that's just the way it is'), we can be sure that the shifts of perspectives will TRICKLE into our awareness over time despite any lack of conscious EFFORT to enact them. After all a 'toning down' of Leonian expectations for 'flashy' beauty is already being expressed through the higher degree of acceptance of 'plus-sized' models over the past few years, for example.

And with Venus poised to 'station' within 1° of Regulus in Virgo in late July as it begins its shift into retrograde motion, it will be the first time any planet has stationed retrograde on Regulus since it entered Virgo! In addition, Jupiter will be entering Virgo on August 11 and hovering over Regulus through August 15 while the Moon's north node backs into Virgo in a conjunction to Mars in mid-late November just after Venus passes over Regulus in Virgo for the second time in three months! So, there certainly is a SHIFT in global consciousness toward more VIRGOan principles and power paradigms over the next few months!!


What does this mean? It means that for the first time since Regulus entered Virgo in early 2012, the world is FINALLY ready to begin the AWAKENING process toward this new more gentle POWER PARADIGM as we begin to EXPAND our services to the world from our most AUTHENTIC and realistic spaces. We are realizing that we no longer need to 'fake it until we make it' as with the Leonian days as we can RELEASE all that is NOT who we are and EMBRACE all that our RAWness IS!

On our journeys, it's now time to 'take the best and leave the rest' behind! REmember that a RE-lease is just that...a NEW LEASE on life...but we can only achieve it if we are willing to REnegotiate the terms of that lease.

Sure the world has a long way to go to transform completely into a new paradigm of power, but by October we should begin to become AWARE of this shift that has already occurred within the global power paradigm...

Venus governs forms of 'value exchange' like MONEY, so I would expect to see perhaps a dramatic SHIFT in how money is VALUED, counted and shared. Could we be on the verge of a COLLAPSE of the old system that has allowed 1% of the world to control such an unrepresentative portion of the worlds total resources? With us as individuals RESETTING our own personal sense of self-WORTH and VALUE during these next few months, perhaps the world may be poised to RESET its own value of resources...whatever happens, it should be INTERESTING!

MERCURY RETROGRADE: Remembering Universal Connection Amidst the Illusion of Separation

In the practice of Astrology, there is probably no planetary scenario that renders more FEAR and negativity on a more frequent basis than that of the planet Mercury shifting into 'retrograde' motion. This APPARENT reverse motion occurs roughly three times per calendar year and is actually just an ILLUSION as the planet is really just completing its revolution around the far-side of the Sun relative to our Earthly perspective. Mercury revolves around the Sun approximately three times in one calendar year on Earth. So, for roughly a three-week period, three times per year, Mercury moves in 'apparent' reverse motion through the zodiac before returning to forward motion once again.

The archetype that 'connects' us in terms of communication and/or distance (i.e. travel) is said to be governed or 'ruled' by the planet Mercury in the practice of Astrology. So, when Mercury is in reverse motion and essentially 'leaving its post' at the helm of all that relates to CONNECTIVITY in the world, the logical conclusion is that this theme of life on Earth will be DISRUPTED. And a quick web search on 'Mercury Retrograde' is bound to bring up copious writings from various sources referring to these time periods as if they are to be AVOIDED like the plague for this very reason. However, we cannot avoid these times regardless of their reputation for being periods when our CONNECTION devices may go haywire or cease to operate altogether.

Some of these 'devices of connection' include but are not limited to the following:
-Nervous system (i.e. our brains and the CLARITY of information exchange in general)

As a practitioner of Astrology for over a decade, I have to admit that in my experience, these times DO seem to correlate with an increase in disruption in terms of things like lost information, scheduling mishaps, automotive hiccups, computer crashes and the like. Despite this, I disagree with the general PERCEPTION that these seemingly 'negative' experiences do not serve an overall positive purpose in our lives.

Let me explain...

In my opinion, ALL IS CONNECTED. So, to me the planet Mercury actually governs the ILLUSION OF SEPARATION that we 'take on' during our Earthly experiences. And if we are never REALLY separated from the ALL, then it is only a PERCEPTION that we REQUIRE devices in order for us to experience CONNECTIVITY on Earth. So, these ILLUSORY time periods of Mercury moving in retrograde motion can be perceived as periods when the ILLUSION OF SEPARATION is being temporary lifted. And it is this lifting of the 'veil' of separation that renders devices that require SEPARATION in order to function to instead temporarily struggle with proper operation.

In the movie Forest Gump (1994), there is a scene where Forest is running from the school bullies while wearing his leg braces which were intended to straighten out his back and to help him 'connect space' (i.e. move about by walking). Its only during this time of APPARENT struggle that he realizes that his braces are unnecessary and, in fact, HINDERING his ability to 'connect space' even FASTER (i.e. running)! Forest's stressful encounter is similar to the stress that we may experience when we suddenly NEED to make a CONNECTION using one of our devices during a Mercury retrograde only to discover that they are malfunctioning and that their 'malfunctioning' is suddenly getting IN the way of our intended connections!

From this perspective, a Mercury Retrograde period is nothing more than a reminder of our unwavering CONNECTION to the universe by affording us the OPPORTUNITY to recognize the ultimate futility of our connection devices which only operate in a space where SEPARATION is a 'reality' and which actually HINDER our intentions for TRUE connections.

Mercury's propensity to remove the veil of separation while in apparent retrograde motion is also why Mercury Retrograde periods have been associated with time periods of improved INTROSPECTION and why people born during these periods seem to have a easier ability to connect WITHIN themselves. As it is only by going within that we TRULY can connect to our HEARTS which is our own personal portal to our connection with the ALL anyway.

Along with introspection, Mercury Retrograde periods are also invaluable for helping us FINISH things in our lives as we can more easily obtain closure with projects, relationships and any other unfinished business. From this new perspective, the reason for easier 'completion' during these periods is that we are actually being RE-connected to those creations that have gone by the wayside. Its as if all perceived BARRIERS (i.e. distance, visibility etc) are removed temporarily allowing us to RAPIDLY address any unfinished business. That sounds like a POSITIVE attribute of Mercury Retrograde periods to me!

So, as Mercury moves in retrograde motion, the ILLUSION OF SEPARATION is temporarily dissolved and we are simultaneously INVITED to RE-connect to the universe as the 'devil's' perceptions of separation are revealed to be unfounded.

Its no wonder the symbol for Mercury looks like it has 'devil horns'!!..Lord, lead us NOT into the temptation of SEPARATION ;).

On a more predictive note, all three Mercury Retrograde periods in 2015 will occur entirely within the three 'air signs' of the zodiac. Air signs represent our SOCIAL connectivity and EXCHANGE of information and ideas. So, using this new perspective on Mercury Retrogrades, 2015 is an opportune time to take advantage of these periods (see below) to RE-CONNECT to the universal TRUTHS about our selves on a collective level.

These will also be times when SECRETS can be revealed to the masses as previous DEVICES (i.e. lies, lack of transparency, media manipulation etc.) intended to separate us from the TRUTH are rendered less operable!

Mercury Retrograde periods for 2015:
Jan 21 - Feb 11 (0 - 17 degrees Aquarius)
May 18 - June 11 (5 - 13 degrees Gemini)
Sep 17 - Oct 9 (1 - 16 degrees Libra)

Walking the Talk and Living in Authentic Wholeness

After a rewarding 5 years of interpreting the astrological charts for other individuals and assisting them in aligning with their personal truth in an empowered way, it is now time for ME to finally 'walk my talk'.

My path is just not that of a personal 'counselor' and I know that now. My sensitivity is my greatest gift and it has assisted many clients with whom I have worked and yet, in the best interest of my own path and my own health, I realize that this sensitivity is better applied toward collective empowerment. My nature is that of an educator and a 'reflector' of truth so that others have the opportunity to interpret the truth for themselves. My own astrology chart has assisted me with this self-understanding.

At some point, I may decide to TEACH others HOW to interpret their own charts and how to use their own charts as a navigation tool for self-understanding and empowerment for themselves personally and/or collectively.

Note that we are ALL going through this kind of self-realization of truth in our own lives right now.

See video just below for details on this 'March Madness' awakening culmination.

I will continue to USE astrology in my life and in my work as long as it WORKS for me. But ultimately, the time has come for me to direct my attention toward teaching others on a more collective level how to fish for themselves rather than catching fish FOR them.

Weather or Not?: Changing the Climate of Collective Empowerment

The Earth's climate over the last ~10,000 years has been an 'abnormally' STABLE period relative to the more commonly unstable climate patterns recorded in the long term paleoclimatic data. Large scale agriculture, as we know it and opon which we have grown to depend, HAS only and COULD only exist within such an 'abnormally stable' climatic period like we have experienced over the past 10,000 years. While it then behooves us as a collective to address any potential impacts that we MAY have on this fragile climate system for which we rely, it ultimately does not matter if we can simply change our 'energy paradigm' to one that is more EMPOWERING.

"Changing the Climate of Collective Empowerment" 
(recorded Oct 24, 2012)
While I did not include any information regarding persistent contrails, weather modification or geoengineering in this video above, if we also DO include these very important man-made geoengineering and weather modification considerations within the discussion it only further enhances the message of what I present here regarding our collective approach to the observed climate change issue. Also note that this video was recorded just days before Hurricane Sandy devastated the northeastern US. It was the weather modification of Hurricane Sandy that woke me up to the ongoing realities of weather modification and the potential realities of geoengineering experimentation in our atmosphere.


Sustainable energy management is something that we create from the inside-out. We can never achieve sustainable energy in the outer world until we deal with the demons that disrupt the flow of our own internal energy. This means getting in touch with the the deep hidden fears that we ALL harbor regarding the loss of our 'freedom' (right wing) as well as the loss of our 'protection' (left wing).

Both the 'left wing' and 'right wing' factions of politics share these wounds in common and this forms a roadblock to our own personal freedom and protection that can only be achieved outwardly through the achievement of a state of  'sovereign harmony' within. This state of internal sustainable energy management creates ripples that can eventually lead to collective sustainable energy management in the outer world. 

When the current financial system unravels, it will open the door to existing 'free energy' technologies that will provide us all with a 'zero climate-impact' opportunity for energy use along with ever more freedom.

It is not the energy that we burn in order to live that is the problem, but the energy of ourselves that we give away which keeps us in a state of confused dis-empowerment and perceived disagreement.

Let's allow the flow of power BACK into our hands...and lets do it together rather than divided

The following links build on the media 'narrative' that climate change is both dangerously eminent and definitely leads to 'warming' primarily due to human-enhanced greenhouse emissions. Proposals for geo-engineering the climate would ONLY be warranted under these 'assumptions'. In my opinion, it is these assumptions that need to be revisited in order to properly address the scope of the observations of our changing weather and climate. The effects of persistent contrails combined with other man-made weather modification activities are NOT adequately included within current computer model projections for climate change.

The 'Chemtrail' Phenomenon and My Suspicions Regarding the 'Global Warming Prevention' Narrative

I suspect that 'stratospheric aerosol geoengineering' (SAG) and/or 'solar radiation management' (SRM) programs using airplane-deployed spraying technologies are already underway. A common 'narrative' as to WHY spraying these trails containing oxides of aluminum, barium and strontium into the atmosphere may be beneficial is that these particulates may serve as a method of reflecting sunlight and combating 'global warming'. As someone with a strong educational and professional background in this science and based on some suspicious activities (see below), I am personally skeptical of this 'accepted narrative' as to why this spraying would be occurring. I also suspect, based one my research and observations and despite the 'official' reference specifically to 'stratospheric' spraying, that little (if any) of the current spraying activities are actually occurring 'well' within the stratosphere. In my opinion, the spraying activities appear to be more related to weather modification activities within the 'troposphere' rather than to 'global warming' prevention projects to reflect sunlight within the higher reaches of the stratosphere (see article and video links just below).

All 'weather' as we know it occurs within the lowest level of the atmosphere known as the 'troposphere'. The boundary between the upper troposphere and the lower stratosphere (i.e. the tropopause) is where commercial airplanes fly (~30-35K feet) and its the highest level for the tops of even the largest cumulonimbus clouds associated with thunderstorms, hurricanes and general weather activities (non-weather related clouds DO exist at higher altitudes than this). So, strictly for the intention of weather modification, spraying particles well into the stratosphere would NOT make any sense. Cloud-seeding activities using chemical compounds such as silver iodide have been used for decades as a way to increase condensation nuclei and encourage precipitation to fall to the ground within the troposphere (typically sprayed between 16-22K feet into existing clouds). However, its only recently that weather modification operations using potentially more toxic oxides of elements such as aluminum have been potentially occurring.

The upper portion of the troposphere is also where natural cirrus clouds exist and its why this would be an ideal location to physically 'blend' the backdrop of the atmospheric landscape with 'trailing activities' in a way in which the average person would be unsuspecting (if this were the intention). Due to the thermodynamic conditions above what is known as the 'tropopause' (i.e. the invisible boundary between the troposphere and the stratosphere) particles well within the stratosphere take MUCH longer to fall to the ground and get 'trapped' temporarily within the stratosphere before gradually trickling into the troposphere and eventually making their way onto the ground. Hence, this is why spraying well up into the stratosphere wouldn't make any sense if 'weather modification' has been the actual intention thus far. This is also why, for example, when Mt. Pinatubo erupted in 1991, the global temperature cooled significantly over the course of the 1992 calendar year and this was due to the natural sulfur emissions from the eruption that were ejected well into the 'stratosphere' allowing the particles to linger and reflect more sunlight than usual over that period.

This fact and the observations of the effects of stratospheric particulates are part of the reasoning behind the geoengineering 'proposals' for artificially injecting sulfur well into the stratosphere to reflect sunlight and 'cool' the planet as a way to theoretically reduce 'global warming'. Assuming 'warming' is the ONLY concern with regards to climate change, then theoretically, this process most certainly should work successfully to 'cool' the planet. But, the potential human health/environmental effects of such potential geoengineering activities are another matter. And, injecting aluminum, barium and strontium (or any other particles) into the upper 'troposphere' or lower portions of the stratosphere (i.e. where commercial airplanes typically achieve their cruising altitudes) allows for relatively rapid precipitation of these particles to the ground (compared to particles injected well into the stratosphere) due to gravity and due to the typical thermodynamic conditions that exist within the troposphere under normal conditions. While artificial sulfur injections well into the stratosphere may be a 'potential' geoengineering proposal, artificial upper tropospheric/lower stratospheric injections of aluminum, barium and strontium oxides appear to be currently occurring and they appear to have been occurring without properly informing the public and without conducting adequate research into the potential human health/environmental effects of spraying these compounds into our environment.

 - Patent US5003186 - "Stratospheric Welsbach Seeding for Reduction of Global Warming" - March 26, 1991 - Quote from above Abstract for Patent US5003186:
"Such materials can include the class of materials known as Welsbach materials. The oxides of metal, e.g., aluminum oxide, are also suitable for the purpose."

 - "Policy Implications of Greenhouse Warming: Mitigation, Adaptation, and the Science Base" - National Academy of Sciences - 1992 - Conclusions from the 1992 National Academy of Sciences publication above:
"...the N.A.S. [National Academy of Sciences] found that the most effective global warming mitigation turned out to be the spraying of reflective aerosol compounds into the atmosphere utilizing commercial, military and private aircraft. This preferred mitigation method is designed to create a global atmospheric shield which would increase the planet's albedo (reflectivity) using aerosol compounds of aluminum and barium oxides, and to introduce ozone generating chemicals into the atmosphere." -

I personally find it slightly suspicious that this 1991 patent for a technology to spray aluminum oxides was completed BEFORE the above official study came out in 1992 on global warming mitigation policies which essentially concludes that aluminum oxides would be ideal aerosol compounds with which to spray. Also, note that this is just ONE of many related patents potentially associated with these spraying activities.

David Keith is a professor of public policy and applied physics at Harvard University who was quoted in the Oct 25 article below that was published just 2 weeks after a Swedish official admitted to their own SAG and/or SRM  programs AND just 2 days after an article was published on the potential health dangers and other risks of such global scale projects (see below). Also note that these articles were leading up to 'Frankenstorm Sandy' just a few days later for which there was clear indication of aerosol modification on satellite imagery. However, it is unclear exactly as to the underlying intentions for these specific modification activities (i.e. was it to influence the storm's direction and/or strength? and in what ways)?. See video and article just below for more details on modification of Hurricane Sandy and modification of tropical weather, in general.

Quotes from the video in the lecture link just above:
"The little picture is from a nanofabrication study which shows you can make very high quality...and do this in just a jet in a very simple way. Make high quality alumina particles just by spraying alumina vapor out in chunks of ice. So its certainly, in principle, possible to do that. There's a big literature that's already looked at that. And you can do that either by building new versions of these aircraft or even re-engineering existing aircraft. So there's some ideas about...if you go to an engineering firm and you want this done, they don't say this is hard or unusual. They say, 'okay yes, we can do it. " - David Keith

"The alumina, we've only begun to research and published nothing. We haven't done anything serious on alumina and so there could be something terrible that we'll find tomorrow that we haven't looked at." - David Keith

"And by the way, its not really a moral hazard, its more like free-riding on our grand-kids." - David Keith

*Note that alumina = aluminum oxide

David Keith is also filmed in the documentary "What in the World Are They Spraying" (see link below) speaking at the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) conference in Feb 2010 in San Diego, CA where he talks openly about spraying 'potentially' toxic aluminum oxide as part of these operations YET in the Oct 25th article above he mentions ONLY the 'potential' spraying of more naturally occurring sulfur dioxide into the stratosphere. Why does he fail to mention the 'potential' for using aluminum to reflect more sunlight than sulfur for reducing 'global warming' in the above article in the same way that he does at the AAAS conference just 2-1/2 years prior? This information regarding spraying aluminum and other more potentially toxic oxides was certainly covered in the National Academy of Sciences 1992 publication (see link above). I find it suspicious that the Oct 25 article quoting David Keith speaks ONLY of the potential use of sulfur compounds despite his obvious knowledge of the use of aluminum, barium and strontium oxides. Its interesting to note that the Oct 23 article above, which discusses the potential dangers of spraying, also only speaks of using sulfur as part of the solution.

Final Thoughts
While I did not include any information regarding geo-engineering or weather modification in this video below, if we also DO include these very important geo-engineering and weather modification considerations within the discussion it only further enhances the message of what I present here regarding our collective approach to the climate change issue (see blog link below). 

Also note that this was recorded just days before Hurricane Sandy devastated the northeastern US. It was the weather modification of Hurricane Sandy that woke me up to the ongoing realities of geo-engineering activities in our atmosphere.
