Readiness is everything and the winds of change are starting to blow. For all the waiting we’ve done, only those who have prepared the ground will be available to the troubled world once the media is infiltrated. Do you have your speeches prepared? Do you know what you are going to say? Do you even know where to begin? How do you feel about public speaking? Are you connected to your community, and do those who know you, trust you? We should at least have some vague idea of where to begin, and what to say in some public arena . It’s great to be awake and aware, but we also need to be prepared. It’s not far off now. Let’s turn a magnifying glass to March, April, and May of 2012. Two I Ching oracles were drawn for guidance for this article. Some of this may be repetitive, but it’s better to be overly prepared than unready.
Mercury is already starting to slow down, as is Pluto; things are now hanging precariously in the balance as we have two fearful planets lurking. But let’s look at Pluto first: in Capricorn, as discussed, the crashing down of false wealth, power, and constructs built on greed, which is already being witnessed – gearing to go backwards; a planet in fear, if we believe in ancient Astrology, which by the way, I do. The wise are resigning while the others continue to battle forwards, headlong into disaster.
This month is very important as Pluto slows down to go retrograde on April 10th. In about two week’s time, it will be barely moving. These problems will intensity, as push comes to shove; it will be do or die. Between the middle of this month, to the time of actual backwards rotation, it will spell the last days of freedom, for some. It cannot be any other way. The empire was just too large, too corrupt, too vast, and too polluted to remain in position. And although it is a new empire crumbling, it isn’t an isolated incident or a unique situation, really; it’s just history repeating itself, only this time we let the demon get really powerful. I think wanting to kill off 90% of humanity and initiating one world order is pretty bad, don’t you think? Let’s just say it might be a little bit worse this time than it’s ever been before. The I Ching draws the 36th Hexagram, Darkening of the Light, six in the sixth place:
Not light but darkness.
First he climbed up to heaven,
Then he plunged into the depths of the earth.
“Here the climax of the darkening is reached. The dark power at first held so high a place that it could wound all who were on the side of good and of the light. But in the end it perishes of its own darkness, for evil must itself fall at the very moment when it has wholly overcome the good, and thus consumed the energy to which it owed its duration.”
But if we follow the rules of chess, we know that the last piece to fall is always the king, while the queen is the most desirable player to take from your opponent, along with all the rest, until the king is trapped. While all this is taking place, those at the top of the power pyramid, the darkest ringleaders, will eventually be cornered, in the end, just like the other players, only with greater shame, because then and only then, will the game over. Once Pluto goes retrograde, the king will be trapped and while he might be chased around the board for a few more moves, check mate will come hard. Because this is really just a game of entrapment, only this time, the winner is pre-determined, as the light always wins, in the end, and this IS the end, of this game.
Two variables to add then, so let’s continue to look at Mars. The end of this month and beginning of April is going to be extremely tension ridden. While Pluto is stationary, just about to go retrograde, Mars will go stationary while retrograde, just about to go direct again. This is so interesting! After Pluto goes backwards, Mars goes direct 3 days later! The first two weeks of April are going to see a change of direction in Martial energies, and while they may go out with a bang, (threat of war, possibly attempts to enlist the aid of more military and security personnel, border closures, call for increased ammunition, etc), the reality is that Mars, and those professions who are ruled by this planet, will be done with their guns, and those who hold power over them, and bid them to do their dirty work, will lose their grip on the men and women in suits with guns. Because losing power means losing all power; you don’t get to slice it up and keep some parts of this pie. They don’t get to hang on to their money, or their police force, or the media, or anything that was gained through terrorism.
This retrograde Mars has seen many people get hurt on our planet and has caused much destruction. It has also reflected increased martial law enforcement in the United States (the military headquarters of the world), and the passing of the National Defense Authorization Act, just as Mars was becoming stationary early this year. Because the United States is representative of the power house that it is, especially with regards to its actual title of military capital of the world, its citizens will be most sorely hit when the truth is revealed. So when Mars goes direct again, while scared Pluto starts to go backwards, we can expect quite the opposite effect of martial control over humanity, but martial control over the ones who will be sought out for arrest! You will pardon me if I sound excited; I will work on developing compassion later.
But let’s turn the focus now on Mercury. I spoke about it in my previous article, but let’s just tie it all in together, because it’s already starting to slow down. I feel this retrograde planet will be quite instrumental in pushing things forward with regards to the literal havoc it will wreak on the already tongue tied and twisted media. With respect to getting the truth however, I feel it will have to get worse before it gets better. While Mercury is stationary (between now and March 12th), there is much going on behind the scenes in our news rooms when the cameras are off. On Monday March 12th, or possibly sooner, we can expect to start hearing some strange things on our televisions and radios. It’s not just that the power mongers will lose control of the media, but the media will become confused as to how to begin reporting the truth. While some will choose to end the silence, others will have to explain why they are saying nothing. And also why they have kept silence for so long. I don’t think the public is going to be overly impressed; after they get over the shock of what they are going to hear, of course.
The reason why this time will be a little different than other times is because Mercury will dwell for a very long time in conjunction to the Planet Uranus, the great and sudden bringer of change. Uranus equals disruption, while Mercury equals thought and communication. Uranus is the ruler of Aquarius and is the great liberator of the mind. The two together will make quite the dynamic duo. That can be no other way. They will be quite the instigators for enlightenment and rude awakenings. The outer planets send forth their influence through the conjunction to the closer inner planets, so it is Uranus that will affect Mercury, who will, for the most part, be going backwards throughout this entire process. Mercury will begin to conjunct Uranus on Monday, March 5th, and will remain within a 3 degree orb of influence until March 23rd, so about 19 days. They will both be in Aries, so we have to throw Mars into the mix, as Mars rules Aries. This will add much energy to this aspect, as well as disrupt travel in vehicles made of steel (pretty much everything on earth).
So while information begins to leak out, surprising people and shocking the general public, the information will be skewed, disjointed, inconsistent and sensationalized (remember, it’s the media). Only this time they won’t have to bust their butts too hard to make it exciting, will they? Nevertheless, the news will be overwhelming as the control over the media is lost. The I Ching speaks of the 51st oracle, The Arousing, Shock, Thunder:
Shock brings success.
Shock comes – oh oh!
Laughing words – Ha Ha!
The shock terrifies for a hundred miles,
But he does not let fall the sacrificial spoon and chalice.
“The shock that comes from the manifestation of God within the depths of the earth makes man afraid, but his fear of God is good, for joy and merriment can follow upon it. When a man has learned within his heart what fear and trembling mean, he is safeguarded against any terror produced by outside influences. Let the thunder roll and spread terror a hundred miles around; he remains so composed and reverent in spirit that the sacrificial rite is not interrupted. This is the spirit that must animate leaders and rulers of men – a profound inner seriousness from which all outer terrors glance off harmlessly.”
Let’s see, what else have we got going on? Oh yeah, the solstice and the New Moon in Aries – big stuff! Basically, the spring solstice means that the Sun is going into Aries but the New Moon happens two days later and oddly enough, of course, aligns with Mercury and Uranus. These are dynamic energies to say the least. So we’re going to throw in the light of the Sun, and the interference of the Moon into the mix, with Uranus and retrograde Mercury, all in Aries (which by the way is a sign that the Moon hates), and we’ve got quite the bag of energies to deal with between March 21st and March 23rd. Plus the solstice energies are powerful for about 3 days before and 3 days after, as they help to increase consciousness. So you see folks, March cannot possibly escape without serious influence on our media and on the continued downfall of our reptilian commanders. What fun!
While the big cookies crumble throughout the month of April, Saturn continues to go retrograde in its sign of exaltation, Libra, which just means the court rooms will be full and more foul relationships will be severed, but we should experience some smooth sailing, so to speak, after April 14th, when all planets will be direct except for Saturn and Pluto. That however is, respectively still quite a lot to deal with, but things should proceed rather nicely until about the beginning of May, when Venus goes stationary, about to go retrograde. This doesn’t happen too often, about every 18 months, and to sum things up, it’s generally a time of austerity for us earthlings. What will be of the most significance with this Venus retrogredation, is the timing. Humanity will be forced to look at their value systems, and question how we can say we love a handbag, and love a person, and have that word mean the same thing; if you get my meaning. This is a test of faith and none of us are exempt.
Let’s enjoy this time, get focused, and get our speeches ready, cause Lucy’s going to have some explaining to do really soon, and we might not get another chance to talk before then.
Face Piles of Trials with Smiles
