I'm finding that things like Twitter and the various psychological programs in play have that centrifugal force, and like many, I'm looking for ways to stay sane and stay myself. In my book Shapeshifter, I looked at the rise of social engineering to fracture and cut the roots of culture, with the agenda to absorb souls into the various hive minds. The depersonalization so many feel comes in part from this very thing. Who is the "I" within an increasingly fake and programmed reality?
In his final book, Autobiography of Values, Aquarian aviator Lindbergh described how he sought that balance between being a public persona and someone who needed solitude and nature. His travels gave him a whole-world perspective, and standing in the ruins of Greece, he thought about how the loss of wisdom often leads to the end of a civilization. I think we all know that doom scrolling on social media doesn't lead to wisdom, and the remedy is to be that person that can find time to think, ponder, and to let all the fragments we take in settle...to digest what we're seeing, form our own viewpoint. To go beyond being reactive, to be active with our minds and guard our own individuality.
Yet with America and the world in an epic crisis, it seems important to engage and speak up for nature and freedom. I see the battle being between nature and anti-nature, and in its finest moments, America has been a champion of natural inalienable rights. More and more though, we see how America is being absorbed into the global governance system, and we as individuals are here for a reason - each of us surely has a role to play.
America is in its Pluto return (according to the original chart of 1776), so let's consider the true bird of this nation, the Phoenix. Pluto can sometimes lead to an ordeal, possibly over many generations like the original time, until all that's false, dead, and not in harmony with nature, falls away. Will America break out of the trap that's been set for generations and rise from the ashes?
Back to Lindbergh, he was born on February 4, 1902,and after his pioneering flight (in 1927) from New York to Paris, he flew across a forested and wild America and the world. He became aware that the advances of flight were leading to the loss of untouched places. He writes of early flights with an open cockpit, touching clouds, feeling the air and moisture, and then seeing planes turn into comfortable enclosed seats apart from the reality of the elements.
"As civilization advances, man grows unconcious of the primitive elements of life; he is separated from them by his perfection of material techniquest. He keeps insulating himself with a compication of devices that increase his security but also surpress his senses. He forgets that he is a naked animal subject to the natural forces of earth and universe."
He's a fascinating Aquarian thinker, being both an innovator, a free speaker (even at great cost to himself), and someone who like his father before him, had visions of what was to come. Even as a young man, he saw the rise of a synthetic culture in America, and had a unique perspective - his summers were spent on the family farm in Minnesota, his school year in Washington D.C. where his father was a congressman. His father, Charles Augustus Lindbergh, was also a man with a vision into the future, and one of the few who had the courage to confront what he called The Money Trust.
I've thought lately about how along with a Deep State there's also been a Deep Great - heroes that saw beyond right and left and the politics of the moment and stayed true to their vision. Whatever happens to the America some of us value, there are values that are timeless and will live on, just as the deeds of great men (and women) live on.
A friend of me and my husband's died recently from lymphoma, and a few days before that, I had a dream about him and I just knew he would be passing away soon. He was driving us in his new 'vehicle' that could bounce over mountains and skip across lakes, and we were laughing with him at his new boundless freedom. I'm grateful for these kinds of experiences that show me that our consciousness is timeless and able to draw from eternal places. Lindbergh the younger wrote:
Dream, thought, and vision are not restricted by bonds of time and space. Our individuality is universality condensed in a cosmic moment. Death is no more than the stuff of substance transposing to the stuff of dream.
When that centrifugal force narrows us to a point ever smaller, we lose that panoramic AND timeless view of ourselves as eternal souls. Our powerful ability to shape our lives through visions and dreams is our way out of dystopian scenarios. The ability to think critically keeps you from being absorbed in the latest trending hysteria. You can find your highest view, even if that is at odds with the masses. And with so many planets in Aquarius, the visionary sign beyond labels and even time, we can draw some high vibes from the cosmos and be restored in nature of which we're a part. I saw a great quote recently, "We are not defending nature. We are nature defending itself."
And to add to the buzz, Mercury will be going retrograde from January 30th to February 20th, so what a great time to clear the psyche of mind viruses and toxic programming. We could see exhilarating declarations of independence from surprising people and places. Already we're seeing alliances forming to break the grip of the enslavement agenda (like in Italy, Poland), and some communities are using innovations like local currencies to help their struggling citizens.
We hear a lot about people being woke or waking up, but shaking off programming can be unsettling and also freeing, just like the vibe of Aquarius' ruler Uranus. New ways to organize society could be hatched, as don't forget, Aquarius' other ruler is Saturn. Aquarius is the air sign of fresh air, wind in your sails, feeling part of a vitalized group, a shared effort. It's also a sign of friendship, high ideals, and ruling principles, and the 11th Hour uniting to overcome whatever lies ahead.
It's the most auspiciously supernatural time of the year, but sometimes I'm haunted by the ghosts of Samhains past, reminding me of times of being spiritually unmoored and vulnerable to energetic predation. My thoughts turn to being in all kinds of ritual circles when living in San Francisco, many anchored in the all-you-can-eat new age buffet with the main event the annual Spiral Dance.
The Spiral Dance was culturally lifted from a European tradition whose remnant can still be seen in the Chain Dance of the Faroe Islands. Also, here's an image from the Netherlands circa 1939 of what's called the Serpent-Labyrinth dance.
While not a tradition that lines up with Samhain in the Faroe Islands, the tradition shows what likely used to be widespread in Europe and involved the whole community. Just imagine the energetic power, the currents moving through as ballads are sung that tell the story of the folk.
Super and Natural
For those that love the time of the thinning veil and all things mysterious, this upcoming Taurus Full Moon looks set to deliver. Smack dab on the 31st, it's beckoning those of us that want to find something authentic beyond all the election triggering and doom and gloom of the mainstream death cult. The fork in the road or bifurcation is real - some seem to be succumbing to the delusion while others are seeking to live outside it. The choice is between the natural and the artificial, as it has been for some time. The other choice seems to be between some sense of health and chronic dis-ease.
What's notable is that the scrambler or genius-striking planet Uranus will be aligned with the Moon and that means directly opposite the Scorpio Sun. In my dreams, people spontaneously shake off the artificial rules being imposed from the top-down and realize the urgent need to authentically re-root in nature and its cycles. For each person, it could be taking steps to create natural abundance or realizing there's a path of freedom (also a Uranian theme) beyond some kind of hold on the psyche (Scorpio).
I also think some might see the image in the mirror change with Mercury in Libra (still retrograde). It seems like a fine time to clear the air in a relationship and change together. Or the events of the past could be seen in a new light, which helps with the letting go which happens this time of year to make room for the new.
I had made a recording for this post, but realize Spreaker charges for more storage, so I will take that as a sign to take a breather from making audios. Thank you to those that listened, and I wish you a wonderful Halloween / Samhain.
Build Back Better with Nature
Finding comfort in being true to what feels natural.
Venus in all-natural Virgo will feel the LOVE when meeting up with the three biggies in Capricorn (Jupiter, Pluto, Saturn) this week. What's favored: the true meaning of what's essential, patient attention as a show of care, thoughtful gestures, earthiness, commonsense, awareness of commonsense, artisan goods and crafts, homemade gifts, nuances and subtleties, purging what's toxic.
Deep honesty and truth emerges.
Mercury Rx in Scorpio will be opposite Uranus in Taurus, and then on Saturday exact to the Sun, making this a week for news or realizations that really set things in motion. It could be revelations that unravel something or expose what's really going on. More may surface from the tech-entrainment trance.
The Plunge in the Dark
The Sun in Libra is making a square to Saturn today (the 18th), before going into Scorpio on the 22nd for more spiraling inward and cozy nesting in the darkening time of the year. I reckon this Sun-Saturn angle could bring out edginess in relationships, an awkwardness due to changing conditions....some of this could be growing pains, part of a maturation process. What I like about this time of year is the promise of real to-the-roots change that comes from going within, in anticipation of emerging again in the spring.
I saw this gem - "don't worry about the election, save your soul..." and it reminded me to stay alert to what's happening beyond the political theatre. For those who can handle some advanced truthtelling, I recommend listening to Mike and Tabitha's new show Expedition Esoterica in which they conclude that the plandemic of 2020 is a false flag for transhumanism.
I woke up mulling this over, fitting for the astrology of now - Mercury turns retrograde in Scorpio today with its themes of possession, enslavement, trauma, hypnotic suggestion, rituals of control, etc. It's daunting to realize how much of our "culture" has been one of programming and numbing our senses. And that though much of the steering was leading to this dystopian turning point. we've already been living under an artificial or alien influence. It's a challenge to deprogram and detox, but this is the mercurial season for it.
In an on-the-nose example, all the pics in this post are from the plandemic pre-programming from the 2012 Olympics in London.
IRL Next Big Thing?
It's important to find a way to fall in love with real life again. I've noticed this for years, how real life becomes dull and the vivid color and entrainment of the virtual is an escape from it. There's even a physical aspect to entrainment to TV and the current technologies that's altered our brains, engendered passivity. Some may have to literally fight to stay human (such as not having their genetics altered), while others may not even know there is a threat.
Mercury's retrograde in Scorpio can be a time for getting to the source of trauma, but also to look at ways we may be programmed at the subliminal level. I know I've realized programs that I was indoctrinated into and been amazed at how I didn't know what I didn't know. The stakes are becoming higher now, as it appears those in control are going for a new stage of enslavement.
The knowledge of how the mind is controlled is power, however. It leads us to making better choices and not living in a state of induced trauma. This affects our relationships, of course, and how we engage with the wider world, too.
The general trend across many generations has been toward dehumanization, treating children in school settings like animals or biocomputers to be programmed to serve the powers' agenda. This has struck at the heart of European civilization since it goes against the idea of each of us being ensouled and capable of excellence. The challenge is one of healing from this demoralization and remembering who we truly are.

Mercury Rx - Oct 13 to Nov 3
I like the mood-setting possibilities of this Mercury retro, starting this week on October 13 in deep-water Scorpio. The truth about a situation could be dark, but lead to objective clarity when Mercury retros into airy Libra toward the end of the month.
I made this recording on the retrograde, with some thoughts on the "virus" as a psychic attack on the public and mind control in general. The stars seem aligned for more to be set free by realizing the way our society is manipulated for the agendas of others. Having a clear picture of what's really happening helps each of us make the best decisions for our future, beyond choices made out of fear. This is along that theme of 'coming to your senses" that culminates with the Full Moon in Taurus on Samhain (Oct 31).
It reminds me of this quote: "Men, it has been well said, think in herds; it will be seen that they go mad in herds, while they only recover their senses slowly, and one by one." Extraordinary Popular Delusions and the Madness of Crowds by Charles Mackay.
In the recording, I read a bit from Dion Fortune's Psychic Self-Defense....she writes among other things that a vegetarian diet leads to hypersensitivity in the European and isn't good for those under psychic attack. She recommends plenty of sunlight to strengthen the aura, along with "games, physical training, massage, anything that improves the bodily condition..."
The changes this year affect most of us, and some of us may be doing battle in some way. It could be fighting authority or it may be something within, like wrestling with your own confidence to deal with all that's happening, restrictions, upheaval, etc.
With Mars still retrograde in Aries (to November 13), it's a good time to root out habits of passivity. One way that's a part of our culture is how we chill and absorb others' vision of the future through movies or TV shows, so many of them dystopian. Another is going along with the hive mind on social media without using our reasoning minds. This is a time (Libra season) when visions of alternative way could come into view, in an inverted world, the flip side could be the right side.
As things heat up into fall and winter, it's wise to think strategically about battles. Here's a quote that has the Aries imperative of being singular and potent playing against a force that's likely bigger than you (represented by the planets in Capricorn). Again, it could be fighting 'the Man' or it could be a showdown with your own ability to take yourself seriously, be the authority or author of your life.
Know Yourself, Know Your Enemy
“If you know the enemy and know yourself, you need not fear the result of a hundred battles. If you know yourself but not the enemy, for every victory gained you will also suffer a defeat. If you know neither the enemy nor yourself, you will succumb in every battle.” – Sun Tzu
All the cardinal (initiating) energies will be engaged since a Cancer Moon takes us into Saturday, making everyone more sensitive and perhaps looking for a safe harbor in all the chaos. Mars Rx forms a grand cross with the Sun Libra, Moon Cancer, and the formidable planets in Capricorn, so for some, this might feel like a hanged-man kind of weekend....the timing of events may seem beyond our control. Mars makes things seem urgent and pressing, so even if the timing isn't right to act, there may be a way to prepare for what you sense might lie ahead...
