Being Authentic is Hard
...because the "society" encourages the creation of a false self, an avi, while all kinds of programming creates fog and inversion - the artificial is elevated, even in the strangely sterile trumpeting of "artificial intelligence.". The intent to get real, though, is powerful in 2020 and Jupiter is an ally in Capricorn, the earth sign of being the author of your own life. What's hot - commonsense, traditions, meritocracy, wisdom (not smarts), honor, strength.
It makes sense that an establishment with slavery in mind seeks to undermine and cut those roots to deep ancestry. The two main roots of our identity - race and biological sex - are the target of intense and relentless programming now, the likes of which I've never seen before. The aims behind these actually have theological roots, the end goal is transhumanism and a monoculture that is the dream of those in power. The distractions du jour are political theatre and project fear - these harvest your energy...remember that old saying, "Energy flows where attention goes."
I've found a rich path of growth in something I've always been interested in - the history of my lineage, the European peoples. I see race as an expression of nature, so the establishment's attack our people face now is like trying to rid the world of the great oak tree or hunt down the last lion. It is natural for European people to be centered in their own culture, to be "eurocentric," just as it is for any racial lineage.
The coming together of Jupiter with Saturn (structure) and Pluto (death and rebirth) later this year is a chance to grow from the authentic roots of ancestry. The whole year has a very Jupiter-Saturn-Pluto in Capricorn feel to it, but the final exact alignment will be on November 21st. Many of us are being swept up into something "bigger than ourselves," which makes sense with Capricorn being a sign of society, traditions, shared harvests, preserving for future generations, authority over your own life. We're in a kind of end game, one that demands we go along with a ritual of dependence and dis-ease.
A lot of what's happening now could be considered the consolidation phase of global control, a vision that has been long in the making. We can invest in another path by retracing our steps to times when our people were strong and had power in their own lands. Along those lines, I really enjoyed this audio from Nordisk Radio - An Introduction to Indo-Europeans.
Jupiter has been supported by dreamcatcher Neptune with a sextile (a lesser trine) all year, and October 14 heralds another exact alignment. It's a good time to dream with the senses, with water and earth coming together. In the autumn, maybe that kind of evocative mood can be set with the aromas of the season. It's a great time to rest, which is hard for many of us (myself included), but only in those deeper relaxed states do we see the buried treasures rise to the surface of our minds.

October is here with its two bookend full moons, starting on day one with the Aries Full Moon. I see this as an invitation to stand apart from the madness, tune in to what's calling you. With a trine to Venus in Leo, you can be reminded of what's special about you, and possibly gifts or potential you'd like to develop more than you have. With the current angles in play, you might find yourself breaking from "norms" (like the new (ab-normal), authorities, or stifling beliefs. Watch that your rebellion isn't co-opted or steered in unhealthy directions but grounded in what feels authentic to you.
There's so much noise and even the tech in our lives creates dissociation, but this is the season to fall into altered states with your timeless (less distracted) self.
The Aries Full Moon is one to break from the hive mind. It takes a lot of personal will (an Aries specialty) to retain a sense of self with your senses engaged in the real world. A practice like yoga or nature walks can be a daily anchor. Even if you're feeling broken, you can set the intent to honor your uniqueness with time and attention through these coming months.
I recently confirmed the Cherokee lineage that we've always known about, which got me thinking about my visit with Elder Dennis Banks of the Ojibwa tribe back in November of 2011. Founder of the American Indian Movement (AIM), he died in 2017 at age 80. We talked about how in contrast to the protests of the sixties (some of them not co-opted), young white Americans have "gone to sleep," living on the internet, and "while they've been sleeping and playing, somebody's been thieving and conning." He predicted America could take a beating and realize it was bankrupt - financially and spiritually - and then maybe wake-up.
Our differences are constantly exploited by those doing the thieving and conning, but many Americans are wild hybrids with ancestors on all sides of every conflict in this land.
So many of us have known our culture and its economy are unnatural - out of sync with nature - but not sure what to do about it. The speed of this lockdown (how very Saturn-Pluto) has been a shock even for me, someone who has been homesteading for over a decade, expecting something like this to happen. Seeing the metastasizing materialism growing up, I always had a sense that this can't last forever....
I feel those familiar survival fears which are NATURAL in a society you sense is careering toward a dead end. So is anger - I'm angry that so many will suffer from a great fall while others profit. The crisis comes with control and an agenda but that doesn't mean those hellbent on wiping out the productive center of our society will prevail.
Each of us has the natural right to live and thrive as much as anyone. We don't have to treat each other as pariahs (as I saw mentioned as a recommendation)...but double down on kindness. A friend pointed out that social distancing seems to trend with Saturn in Aquarius (starting tomorrow March 21). It's a curious phrase for a curious time. I see a lot of equating virtual reality with real reality (of course, because of the circumstances) - this suits the technocracy but comes with the danger of becoming more disembodied and apart from nature.
Will there be a shift of gravity back to the locale, the region, the nation? The paradox could be that this reinvigorates the real relationships we have right around us - with each other and each creature that shares our day.
The instinct is to breathe shallow now, especially in closed spaces or if you are wearing a mask. I found this short vid from Wim Hof, the Dutch "Ice Man" who takes dips in freezing water. It's a quick way to "get high on your own supply" and boost your immunity.
What a fragmented and chaotic time! What good could come out of it?
To ponder the as above, so below, we see the muscle of Saturn and Pluto with the hints of the consolidating 'new world order' (out of chaos). I also factor in the hysteria of Neptune and the entrainment of many in our traumatized society. I'm not saying there's no real contagious virus, but the mind virus piggybacking on it appears to be the far more deadly one.
I'm feeling strangely calm and peaceful but feel the real challenges lie ahead. You don't have to be a "psychic" to know that the chain reaction has been set in motion for a reset of the entire society in terms of how people make their living, their livelihoods. I'll plant seeds for the spring garden and put away a few cans of this and that - what are your plans?
The Corona Mind Virus
I also feel the need to not be lackadaisical about my spiritual wellness. Are you feeling this, too?
One of my main ways to do that is to limit emf exposure - 5G and wifi in general weakens the immune system and also disrupts the pineal gland, your center for higher guidance. That makes all of us susceptible to the hive mind phenomenon that is so strong right now.
Corona, of course, means crown, and when that chakra has interference, you can become depressed and feel cut off from your own higher nature. I know I'm closer to it when I have a lot of synchronicity happening, and am able to remember dreams.
In the midst of this pandemic pandemonium, there is the chance to return to what matters. The Sun's corona or crown are those spiky rays that you see sometimes especially at sunrise or sunset. Two constellations have this name also - Corona Borealis (crown of the north) and Corona Australis (crown of the south).
This culture offers no visions of a bright future - I am fed up with the dystopian films and books fed to young people especially. The moment now can be one of envisioning a future rooted in the natural abundance of Mother Nature and kissed by the Sun.
The Sun is healing and is bigger than any lab-made virus - it is eternal and reliable from season to season. Let's celebrate the Sun today on Spring Equinox.
I wonder if Uranus into Taurus will wake more people up to the frying effects of the tech that's scrambling our natural energy bodies. The big phrase with Uranus in Aries has been to trigger someone or be triggered.
How Aries is that, too? To be set off, activated, and that be a near-constant state, with the continual feed of triggering content some of us are exposed to all day.
Uranus goes into Taurus on May 15th for a while, then back into Aries later this year.
I'll make a prediction that we'll see more innovations that neutralize radio frequency, or gizmos or gadgets to help you ground yourself or your technology. We'll see rebels who recover their health by taking a more minimalist approach with tech.
I've made some changes, because I've become electro-sensitive, and was already sensitive to energies, sound and frequencies. Some things I've done are to go wired with ethernet cables, use the cell phone minimally and put it on speaker and use a corded phone.
I also go barefoot a lot. But the main thing is to break the addiction to the buzz, and it's a physical thing as well as a psychological thing of feeling like you're part of something (the net).
I've had warning signs that I could get ill from working so much on the computer, like headaches, vertigo, fatigue. I've been experimenting with ways to be an EMF minimalist, like the guy in the video below, while still being productive with my laptop and the 'net. Check out his videos if you'd like to hear more about breaking the addiction, and finding some balance again.
Cancer season is traditionally a time for reunions, spinning yarns, and nesting. It's a good time to grow stronger in your own blood and soil -- the power of your ancestry, and if you're lucky, a sense of place where you were raised. This is an antidote to the throwaway culture that bops from one drama to the next.
Dig deep! I plan to get back to my story, one that I've been working on since mid-April, but that is in danger of dying from neglect. This is a month for nurturing those creative babies, and real ones. I've got lots of babies in my aviary -- 3 mockingbirds, a grackle and a mourning dove.
And just in time, I have a family vacation to St. Augustine planned to meet up with family. It's the oldest city in America and has had five flags (five nations), almost as many as Texas, which has had six flags.
This makes me think of that word nation, and its etymology, from nasci, to 'be born."
c. 1300, from Old French nacion "birth, rank; descendants, relatives; country, homeland" (12c.) and directly from Latin nationem (nominative natio) "birth, origin; breed, stock, kind, species; race of people, tribe," literally "that which has been born," from natus, past participle of nasci "be born" (Old Latin gnasci), from PIE root *gene- "give birth, beget," with derivatives referring to procreation and familial and tribal groups.
We're heading toward America's birthday, July 4th, which is also my birthday (!), and I reflect on this question, "what is a nation?" What kinds of societies come from globalism, and what kind come from preserving those unique regional cultures or nations?
Astro-wise, Mars in Cancer (June 4th to July 20th), and this means the motivation is toward the very personal, and what naturally flows out of your emotional and ancestral history.
The Sun goes into the sign of the Crab on the 20th, then Mercury on the 21st.
One way to look at Jupiter and 7th House is how you know yourself by way of responses you get -- out there. And what a strange time we live in with avatars and timelines, where the self-image is almost an abstract thing -- out there on the 'net.
It's a time when you might make a comment, like my husband did the other day on my uncle's Facebook timeline, and not get a response back. He shrugged it off, but we both take note of that kind of thing, and how odd it it, such a divergent etiquette than the way things used to be pre-social media.
The usual give and take has somehow given way to new rules, I guess because social media has become a kind of soap box or personal pr machine, where responses are optional. There's also a 'look at me' theme, with so many wanting to be seen, heard, 'liked,' but all at the same time.
Having that door open to a response takes energy, and that's one reason I don't like the format of Facebook with dangling remarks that are never answered, or sharp exchanges with cousins that are not resolved in person.
Now this is a wild sync, because as I check my own writing on Jupiter in Libra (for ThoughtCo, formerly About.com), I see I wrote about 'The Facebook.'
Does this all lead to a sense of being fractured energetically, and having lots of loose ends? Symbolically with Jupiter this year, it's one of growing through the give and take, especially with one other. But it can also be your self-image, and learning from the responses you get.
Jupiter Libra can bring out that question, who are your real friends? One of my friends is about to turn 50 (and so am I!) and her daughter is asking for memories for her birthday celebration. It's really got me thinking about her and me, and our close friendship since we were at least 10, but I think before that.
And recently I was really wondering, what does she think of who I've become, and things that happened over the years? It's those people that really, really know you, that have always known you, that are the most profound mirrors of who you are, and who you've become. I think it would take time, and maybe some glasses of wine (he he) to get to the heart of that question, as our paths diverged in many ways.
There are those whose opinions of us matters more than others. That's part of the Libra dance, too, isn't it? Everyone reads us from their own perception, and that's part of what we can weigh, to take what's of value in their responses, and leave the rest!
I've never really liked strawberries unless they're buried in a dessert like the one shown here. I like though that June 9th's big one is the Strawberry Moon, as I'm a fan of eating in season. It was named by the Alqonquin, and adopted by European settlers in America.. Read more about the Strawberry Moon in the Farmer's Almanac.
So it's at 18 degrees Sagittarius, and that means the Sun is opposite in Gemini. Here are some themes to ponder:
It's my sense that the biggest threat to me and all of us is social engineering, like the staged hoaxes and orchestrated campaigns to shape mass behavior and perception. This seems to be sending many over the edge. It's a threat to our health, sanity and even physical survival.
What's helped me is gaining knowledge about social engineering, and doing what I can to shield myself from it. More and more truth is thought to be 'relative' and fluid, and social engineers work 24-7 to massage perception, bending it for certain ends.
In logic, there's the truism that there are no contradictions in nature. And what we see in the synthetic reality being imposed is constant and relentless contradictions.
I find it takes discipline to use critical thinking skills, common sense and to avoid being drawn into the latest faux drama designed to keep whole populations in a state of trauma. There's that saying that the truth sets you free, and I've found that's true in my life.
There are many traps of heart, mind and spirit, and the Strawberry Moon is one for firming up resolve to not be distracted by the manufactured chaos. It's a pretty good one for making a collage or take a committed step toward an aspiration (with Saturn close by).
Gemini and Sagittarius are also to do with being part of the sharing of what you know. And that makes it one for being a presence, finding the humor in a situation, taking bits and pieces and forming a new collage or phrasing or framing.
Some might think of travel under this Moon, or see a spike in curiosity, that can open up a new pathway. I note that Jupiter (Sag's ruling planet) is still retrograde in Libra, so keep that in mind if you're in a swirling eddy of inertia, or finding it hard to get a response from others. Jupiter turns direct though with the Full Moon (June 9th), so let's see if things shift, especially in Libra matters (relationships, fair play / legal case, biz partnerships, beautification plans, etc).
Feel free to leave a comment, say hi or give your thoughts on the Strawberry Moon.

I hope you all are hanging in there, in these upside down times. I've been busy with the bird season (wildlife rehabilitation) and setting up our roadside produce stand. See more pictures from the garden below.
To be honest, we haven't had a ton of visitors yet, but those that have stopped by are those that appreciate how hard it is to grow organic food, and are able to take the time for a face-to-face encounter in our automated world. And just like with readings, I know I attract quality over quantity and that's the way I like it.

I am certain of nothing but the holiness of the heart's affections and the truth of imagination – what the imagination seizes as beauty must be truth – whether it existed before or not. John Keats
Pisces Eclipse with Neptune
Is it still possible to experience the truth of the imagination? Artists and writers like Keats reached those states, but in today's cacophony, it requires a strong will.
I recently heard it phrased as a 'superpower' to be able to focus on one thing in our distracted world, with fragments, news feeds, time lines, etc.
And I see the fullness of the imagination like that, too. Or even just to meander, ponder, wonder, amble, daydream, beyond the virtual matrix. It's a choice, and there's a kind of surrender to it, but it also takes discipline.
With this eclipse, Pisces' ruler Neptune is there close, so a tip is to watch your influences. Neptune relates to intoxicated states, or being 'under the influence.' What's entrancing you? What dreams are being presented or even sold? Are these your true dreams, self-sourced? Or are they shaped from the dreams of others?
The dream and waking up are themes these days, as people claim to be 'woke' and the great awakening is a thing. There are dreams of mass culture that have been generations in the making, but to the woke, they are seen for what they are -- enslavement.
In readings recently, entrancement has come up, and in particular, the "parasite" of social media. How much of our imagination is absorbed being a voyeur into others' lives or wearing a mask (an avatar)? Are you living the live version of yourself, or the pre-recorded show?
I also think it's clear that along with dreams, what's being sold are nightmares. There's an initiation happening on a mass scale, and while this New Moon is about surrender, yes, it's also about resistance. Resistance to dystopian visions of the future, the glamour of the dark occult (Satanic or death culture).
The antidote to this is rejecting sadistic and degenerate media, and celebrate life, not death. This is a good New Moon to surrender to renewal, and finer, higher vibes. When you're taking in low vibe content, you're more susceptible to the programming.
Astrology is one tool for looking at your life apart from the hive, from the enveloping atmosphere of artificial culture.
Visions of the Future
This is one of those New Moons for just wondering, and for dreaming, praying, being with spirit in nature.
It's worth noting that Pisces' traditional ruler is Jupiter (the dream tracker). And on top of that, Jupiter (Libra) and Saturn in Sagittarius (Jupiter's sign), are at a friendly angle.
That hints that things can go either way. That if you guard your personal atmosphere, you might just have breakthrough images that really lift your spirit.
