Hello, this is your Captain speaking. I’m sad to have to tell you the shocking news of a ground emergency that may affect some passengers of today’s Aquarian Airlines flight 719, from Marseilles France to Cleveland Ohio. As we make our way west to the Full Moon of July 19, we have heard of even more terrible and bloody events than we’ve come to expect in turbulent, explosive 2016. A military coup has just been suppressed in Turkey, with the loss of hundreds of lives and the arrest of thousands of military officers who may wish that a life sentence in a Turkish prison were one of their options now.
Even more alarming for those who cherish and celebrate freedom is that the Bastille Day holiday in France, anniversary of the day in 1789 when the people of Paris stormed the city’s hated prison and triggered the French Revolution, turned horrific a few days ago. On July 14, 2016, as I was recording the video voice track about how this coming Full Moon affirms the power of brave human beings to reclaim their liberty from those who want to take it away, one vicious attack on freedom was soon to come in Paris, where the Eiffel Tower would be set afire, and another had just arrived in Nice, on the Riviera, where a heavy truck is reported to have roared at high speed through a crowd near the beach, killing some 81 people.
The usual consequences unfold. There is more of the heightened tension and paranoia that now passes for enhanced security. The French authorities are investigating. The internet is rife with stories about false flag events and sacrificial murders timed by the Illuminati for the moment when they will cause the iciest fear. The condolences flow to the families and friends of those who perished on Bastille Day. And the speculation grows about where it will all go from here, and whether it will get even worse.
One thing we can be sure of is that it will continue. This year’s showdown battle, between the controlling archons who aim to destroy our freedom by attacking our capacity to hold faith and courage, and those of us who intend to liberate the world through the communal force of our love — in other words, the struggle between our collective higher and lower selves — has three more months to run, until October. It is essential, then, that we find the ways to endure, and prevail.
I’ve posted two 10-minute videos on YouTube, “July19,2016FullMoonOne” and “July19,2016FullMoonTwo”. While we will soon take a brief look at the July 19 2016 Full Moon chart, the easiest way to understand what is happening in the exceedingly rich and complex astral design of this Full Moon is to let the videos walk you through it. The chart is cast for Cleveland, Ohio because this is where the convention of the US Republican Theatre Company will nominate the gaseous reality TV star Donald Trump, a week before the Democratic Drama Society will nominate the terrified, implosive war criminal Hillary Clinton. Then both groups of players will pretend to be competing against each other — and “fighting for us” — while in fact, as always, they collude to rig the game and slice the pie for the benefit of their archon masters.
The Capricorn Full Moon: July 19, 2016 at 6:56 pm EDT in Cleveland, Ohio
This chart is packed with tension, energy and potential. We would need a small book to cover it all, so rather than duplicate at great length what’s already in the videos, I’ll present only a few summary notes.
The chart is exceedingly challenging, and it pushes us toward daring proactive change, because it has two cross alignments: the T-cross we’ve observed before among Saturn, Neptune and the two Moon’s Nodes; and a full four-armed Grand Cross among Moon and Sun, and the vertical axis of the chart, occupied at the bottom center by Uranus the Revolutionary, Bringer of Change. These crosses are filled with the 90° angles that conventional wisdom in astrology says are “stressful” and “difficult,” but are really forces of leverage that pressure us toward the making of overdue changes.
The chart is also wonderfully promising, because it contains a number of the 120° “trine” combinations that are placating and cohering. They’re anchored by a beautiful Grand Trine among the the creativity of the Cancer Sun, the protective warriorship of Mars in Scorpio and the compassionate art of Chiron the Healer in Pisces, meaning that we have served ourselves yet another opportunity. To do what? To tap the natural unifying potential of an intuitive, emotional Grand Trine in the three water signs. And to see through the oppressive matrix of details and distractions that the archons are endlessly projecting at us to keep us dumbed down and divided, and to find the tipping points that favor us.
The ongoing engine of the celestial dynamics, in all the Black and Full Moons, from last December through October 2016, is the 90° “square” between Saturn in Sagittarius and Neptune in Pisces. We’ve explored the meaning of this planet combination in previous posts and videos, and will keep looking at the clues it can provide us. This time it’s useful to look at the elements of the two planets.
Saturn is the heaviest of the Earth planets, and will tend to remain solidly placed and immobile, resisting all change. The direction of the Earth element is down, toward anchoring and stasis.
Neptune, the Ocean herself, is the most expansive and pervasive of the Water planets. This planet, who should have been named Isis when she was discovered, is the mystical force that dissolves all boundaries and unites all beings in the universal field of all-encompassing wisdom and love. The direction of the Water element is inward, toward receptivity and ingathering of energy toward release.
When Saturn and Neptune are in a prolonged, unsustainable push against each other, a Saturation must come. Earth becomes so full of Water that it cannot hold, and a Mud Slide occurs. The whole mountainside drops to the valley floor, and the village is buried. Thousands of people, animals and plants die. There are speeches about Tragedy and about why God allows this to happen. Some people lose faith.
Nature is less alarmed. These things happen in the eternal play of Earth and Water, Air and Fire. Soon the first green shoots appear in the dark sheen of the mud, and in the months ahead all those buried bones and muscles, nerves and hearts, eyes and brains kindly give their terrific regenerating force to pushing the green life out of the soil and up toward the Sun, and a meadow is born.
How to see these things as Nature does? Perhaps in finding the right sounds and silences, as I’ve been blessed to do in Guatemala at the end of my six months on the road. I’ve sung for an afternoon in the church of Santa Clara in Antigua, the historic center of Guatemala City, one of those marvelous acoustic spaces that the Spanish built all over the New World as the best possible conversion magnets for native people who were more likely to go Catholic if they believed they’d get to spend eternity in a place where the singing is even more beautiful than it is here. The sound in this place is astonishing, even without a roof. Santa Clara, a must-see and must-sing in Guatemala City, is being restored, amazingly, with funding from the government of Taiwan.
Nature is even more masterly with silences, in places like Yaxha. Unlike the famous and much visited Mayan site of Tikal, the more remote Yaxha may be the best example I’ve seen of how to honor a sacred site by keeping it as perfectly integrated into Nature as it was when the Maya first built it. There are no vendors here, and just enough signs to guide you well. The only reminder we get that we’re in the 21st century now is that from speakers hidden within the trees, we can hear recordings of male voices chanting the ancient sacred music, and of jaguars roaring, wolves crying and cicadas singing toward crescendi that die suddenly into silences so pure and deep that all the world feels whole.
We will need to cohere in holistic community and choose our songs and silences well in the months to come. This Too Shall Pass. Keep Holding That Frequency.
