Here’s what the full moon looked like from Grail Sprimgs wellness retreat in Bancroft Ontario
I’m thinking about Saturn a lot these days and how everything is it’s really based on Saturn which is mortality. Aries Sun is squaring Saturn in Capricorn today. Chasing down the ancient world’s alchemical obsession with obtaining the Philosopher’s Stone, unlocking the secret of immortality, and living forever

Big day today for 22+ degrees AQUARIUS and SCORPIO
As Sun squares Jupiter one of The bESt aspects you can get!
Big boost of emotional energy like a lightning bolt of life force energy bringing anyone back from the dead-Scorpio territory.
This is a get lucky, expansive over the top positive deeply seductive Power.
You always have to be careful of Jupiter In Scorpio, as the great expander of sex, secrets, money power, psychology, hidden, underworldly, shadows, control issues, foreigners, death, and rebirth is one heavy hombre.
Cool detached Aquarius won’t know what hit them. This energy could have any nerdy type falling for a very seductive woman or any heavily seductive pull to their shadow qualities-those aspects of ourselves that we hide from deny and project onto others.
Jupiter can bring big rewards for a research project, any organization or startup, an international project, hi-tech business deal or Cryptocurrency Expansion.
This is literally electrical energy from water or underground sources. Tsunami or volcanic eruptions may be high.
It’s all good but INTENSE as Jupiter makes everything feel like an emotional tsunami.
TAURUS and LEO @ 22 degrees also gets opposed or squared by these two Kings of planets and stars.
Whatever you do-do it big bold Leo proud, over the top, feel it fully.
Play your luck have trust and faith that as you dive deep into hidden and even forbidden territory that you can keep a cool head and a higher perspective.
VENUS enters PISCES
Venus is moving out of the underworld and has become an evening star although she is still too close to the sun to be visible until March. she is called Venus Phosphorus when she is in her beautiful evening Star phase.
She enters Tropical Pisces where she is EXALTED meaning in her most beautiful form.
Exaltation are ancient Rulership attributes.
Venus in Pisces is a beautiful sexy mermaid. I know Pisces is all about unconditional love but Venus is always all about sexuality sensuality flirting seduction. She was born from the sea-foam. She is part of the unconscious truly feminine realm.
Venus is a dream girl
Ask the goddess of dreams to bring you a dream or spirit lover for Valentine’s Day if you are a singleton and feel lonely.
It’s a time for compassionate love. unconditional love, forgiveness, for making beautiful watercolors, arranging flowers, meditating, Long Soul cleansing ritual bathing, and consciously dreaming.
You’ll be wearing rose-colored glasses. This is a perfect position for Valentine’s Day.

Radical thinking REWIND
RADICAL THINKING REWIND
Digital Photograph by Napoleon Brousseau of illustrator/artist Fiona Smyth 1998
As Uranus in Aries turns Retrograde Aug 2-3rd. The rewinding of Uranian Higher consciousness energy will truly help us to see that this is an absolute new beginning of independent thought and revolutionary thinking meant to WAKE US UP collectively. Time to throw off the yoke of old Patriarchal religions and cultures which are symbolized by the RAM which is ARIES.
Think about that for a while. The AGE OF ARIES began approximately 4320 years ago when the Jewish religion and the Old Testament was being created. This was the beginning of codified Patriarchal SKY GOD as separate from the Earth and the Divine Feminine. To have dominion or domination over the earth and the animals and women was a radical idea and not the way that humans had lived for millions of years before recorded history. Humans felt that the Goddess was immanent in nature and in every living thing including rocks. The ancient knew this. They lived in harmony with and worshipped the natural world and the Goddess from the beginning of humans. Christianity and Islam built upon those male powered myths and all splinter groups from that too.
Reading on FB the words of Sara SOPHIA Eisenman an author and writer for Elephant Journal got me inspired on this topic. We have been brought up in a toxic programmed cultural hypnosis to honor “God and your mother and father.” Many people are waking up to the toxic shaming from dysfunctional families ranging from emotional abuse to sexual abuse incest pedophilia sex trafficking rape and psychological torture.
This phase must end. Humans are becoming conscious that they are human and have inherent rights and cannot and should not be abused by anyone anywhere anytime. Men treat women as chattel and sexual objects. Religions sanctions these abuses. Cultures encourage men to mistreat women and children one way or another. Children are not honored protected and kept safe from harm. The culture is the real culprit here ranging from the sexual freedom in the west to music and consumerism.
Most people have been traumatized in their lives overtly and covertly. We have been taught that this is normal. That we must respect our parents no matter how shitty they treat us. Or that we must honor them as elders. But being elders alone does not sanction respect. In effect it should logically be the opposite. If by the time you are a mature adult you haven’t done your inner work haven’t felt all the unfelt emotional triggers and honored and healed your inner child and taken full repsonsibility for your own shadows in your consciousness and still blame others feel victimized and engage in toxic relationships than you shouldn’t be worthy of being treated with respect and are supposedly wiser. Look at 70 year old Donald Trump a total 3 year old emotionally. Pitiful and shameful.
It’s time to begin a radical new way of thinking. Uranus the ruler of AQUARIUS brings in a new way to share the power to detach from those who are not on the same level playing field. Aquarius consciousness is higher not lower consciousness. We could think of these as higher evolved chakras from the Heart up. Lower conscious deals in all the petty things that the Bible iterates; jealousy wars killing raping stealing basic lower reptilian brain survival of the fittest thinking.
URANUS will be Retrograde until January 2, 2018. That is a good long time to rewind all the misguided directions all the new love affairs business ventures new policies laws governments and personal choices we have made.
URANUS is nearing its 7 years stay in ARIES. We’re running out of new time. Aries is fire and initiation and initiative and “self. The keyword for ARIES is “I AM.” Not in the egoic sense but the God/dess sense. I am the God/dess. I am sovereign. I rule in my life. I am fire alive spirit.
Go back to the drawing board for these next 5 months. Uranus rules Hi-tech the net. Freedom of the press. What needs to be radically changed in your life? What new direction would you like to venture on? Where do you need to be free? How can you open your mind? How do I build a new stronger sense of myself? How do I stoke my own passion? How do I ignite my life? How do I initiate myself into a new way of thinking living acting being? How do I radically change the world as I become more conscious?
URANUS is being trines by karmic planet SATURN in SAGITTARIUS and the NORTH NODE in LEO. The North Node in LEO is what is creating all the eclipses in AUGUST and will continue to guide us for the next 2 + years. Saturn and North Node represent an evolutionary necessity to tell our truth to listen to our Hearts to be courageous to follow the passion of our own personal wills. Leo is the sign of the child and these planets mean to follow SACRED LAW. There are two sacred laws in Indigenous teachings. 1. Everything is born of the Feminine or woman. 2. Nothing should ever be done to harm the children. These are two simples but very powerful teachings.
Collectively everyone needs to wake up from a thousand of years old sleep. We have all been like “SLEEPING BEAUTY.” The PRINCE in this Fairy Tales is never an actual human male outside of oneself. Don’t buy into that one literally. The Prince symbolizes the inner masculine who lives in every woman and man. He is the heroic spirit or element of FIRE who honors respects protect and defends the beauty love and creativity of the female inherent in her being.
Activate your own inner Prince the Hero aspect of yourself who frees the innocent from the dragon. Who defends the innocence of the child within; fearlessly stands up to any authority. His motives are pure; is dedicated to the good; to preserving culture the family and nature.

Happy Fourth of July neighbors. I awoke to the sound of marching band music and thought I was somewhere in the U.S. I’m not accustomed to hearing that here..
I havent done my July forecast yet. JUPITER entering LEO is the BIG NEWS of course on July 16. I will be doing a tele-class want to join in?
CH CH CHANGES in your love life
VENUs in in GEMINI of course till the 18th- tongues will wag.
many partner changes, flirtatious meetings. endless chatter and flitting from one indecision to another.
Venus was Quincunx Pluto yesterday
Making for awkward bedfellows and creating relationship huffs, not just for Gemini and Capricorn but Taurus and Libra, and Scorpios too. It will pass.
Moon enters Peacenik LIBRA in the early a.m.
and makes a Quincunx to Neptune in Pisces in the evening
your dreams may be none to peaceful with lots of rifles and thieves in the night.
July 5 Cardinal Cross
Libra Moon has her work cut out for her she squares Pluto, and the Sun opposes Uranus.
Moon to VENUS in GEMINI also good for AQUARIUS
early in the a.m. Clean your mental slate and talk to strangers
LIBRA MOON QUNINCUNX CHIRON in PISCES
A whole lot of qunincunx’s going on. Libra moon always wanting to be NICE,tries to bandage the wounds but it only makes it worse. Superficiality ignores the real pain at a high cost. Being vulnerable is sexy. Most men have PTSD by virtue of being born masculine.
LIBRA MOON CONJUNCT MARS @ 19 degrees+of LIBRA at 6:31 pm PDT/9:13 pm EDT
The Moon in the TAROT is the HIGH PRIESTESS
Mars in the Tarot governs THE TOWER Trump # 16
the TRUMP TOWER- a funny pun. The Marsial aspect is the Lightning of God which strikes the tower which is the Masculine ego blasting it off. I didn’t know this actually happened 5 days ago.
in Chicago June 30 2014 a go a triple lightning hit
Struck by the lightning of the Intuition of the High Priestess. YES!
this aspect Activates the love muscle. VERY, romantic harmonic balancing and peaceful.
A great day to get married. I am sure there are many who chose this date.
GOOD DAY for meditating on balancing wounded masculine energy.
MEDITATION to heal the wounded masculine
You will need 2 red candles and 2 white ones. Smudge or incense.
Create a sacred space within and without by cleansing your aura mind and body with incense or smudge first.
Start with the element and spirit of FIRE Which is always masculine. I consider fire to be in the EAST where the SUN rises so I start there. Other traditions use South for Fire, do which ever suits your temperament more. Call upon the SOURCE, the light, action, passion to be in your circle and in your heart.
Then move always SUN WISE. to your right. NEVER LEFT-
Call in the element, direction of the spirit of WATER in the SOUTH, call in the heart, flow, the emotions, feelings, the receptivity of water to be in your heart and in your circle.
Then call in the direction of the WEST and the spirit of the earth for strength, health, to let go, intuition, the Goddess energy to be with you in your circle and in your reality.
Then call in the NORTH powers of air, the breath and mind, learning and wisdom to open your mind, to connect you with the “as above”. Ask wisdom to enter your mind and your circle.
Get in touch with your inner YANG masculine energy, every person has both a masculine and feminine side. The Masculine is aggressive, heroic, he is ego, power, analytical, action, sexual desire, energy, passion, defenses, ordering, detached. You may feel certain parts of your body to be connected to your masculine drive for power.
We all have body armouring, Anywhere where your feelings or actions or sensations were stifled and you were held back is where that energy is stored in your body, mind, emotions or spirit. Wilhelm Reich created orgone energy blankets and machines to stimulate the essence of the life force. Tense up your muscles and see if you can feel where you are most tense. Most people hold a lot of stuff on their backs and neck. Just be aware of it and relax it. Let it go- there is no posturing , attitude, ambition needed, nothing to do.
You can speak to your inner masculine and applaud him. Welcome him home, Open your heart to love and welcome your conquering hero warrior home where he can take off his armour and allow himself to relax and be open and vulnerable. There is Nothing to defend.
Allow yourself to see in your minds eye the Gladiator take off his armour. He can relax his muscles, can allow himself a big deep breath. He can be open, sensitive, he can cry, he can feel pain, he can be vulnerable. His vulnerability is his greatest strength.
Hold the wounded boy soldier in your heart, allowing him to open relieves him of his burdens, he can start to feel balanced and whole. There is a great love which can now flower.

June 10 Card of the DAY –
MAJOR TRUMP ZERO /22
“Be foolish, that your heart may be at peace.”
OKay I missed a day of daily cards here I admit it,so I am the fool. I haven’t tried to fool you at all.
I think it’s better to make a fresh start. So what better way than turning up THE FOOL? YAY!
THE FOOL-the very first symbol in the TAROT is Zero, the card has a name but really no number, he is naught, eternity.
but also he is the ending as well, as #22 Major Trump.
The Fool is the Soul itself, childlike trust, innocence, always learning, seeking, curious, open.
The FOOL -Lives totally in the present moment, no past no future,
THE FOOL is the embodiment and symbol of ENLIGHTENMENT itself,
no agendas, no conscious mind chatter, no ego, nothing left to lose,everything to gain,
Has done everything already, so what’s to fear? Nothing, no fear.
THE FOOL is traditionally shown wearing a jester’s or raggedy clothes, a young man with a little dog- the instincts- nipping at his heels,
carrying a small pack and a staff. sometime’s a flower. He is carefree.
The Fool is the shadow of the KING. King’s used to employee jester’s to sit at the side of the throne. They are two sides of the same coin. The Fool is the real knowledge but in disguise, the King is the ego, and apparent control. The jester keeps the King’s ego in check. Power can come and go very quickly, better to be humble.
Being the Fool unbinds energy, instincts, the wisdom of the superconscious.
The FOOL is timelessness- stopping the world as Don Juan the Yaqui shaman who taught Carlos Castenada.
The Fool always symbolizes a brand new beginning, a new birth, a fresh start.
The first time one has a Tarot reading one is considered to be embodying or initiated by The FOOL. The Fool can unlock you from your own prison.
All is new. Forget any agendas or shoulds. Trust your instincts, live moment to moment, Who cares what anyone else thinks? Be true to yourself,let go of the past. Drop your ego and see the miraculous world you are in. Laugh at yourself. Free yourself from your own prison. Opportunity is everywhere.Everything is creative energy, look at things in an entirely new way. Trust, have no fear. You are an eternal child. PLAY, have fun.

May 27 Inspirational Card of the Day
Energy is intense today and still post Eclipse as well so
TAROT TRUMP # 12
When most people see the Hanged Man they want to turn the card the other way around. “right side up.”
But this is the way it’s supposed to be with the upside down man hanging by his ankle from a tree, which is the traditional context. The 12th card is an initiation card- an emotional baptism, the symbol of the planet NEPTUNE- the trident on the card. This is a spiritual baptism, an immersion into NON-EGO.
Like the symbol on the card this is about SUSPENSION. Suspended animation, suspending your beliefs. A void state. Don’t avoid the void.
The way you thought things are isn’t working. You must ALLOW, let go of your will. Surrender.
The Hanged Man puts the focus squarely on whatever your HANG UPS are right now.
The Hanged Man is also the martyr or scapegoat who gets blamed by other’s and willingly sacrifices himself.
Forgiveness is also a deeper meaning. The card energy is similar to Christ sacrificing himself on the cross for others’ sins. Issues of transmuting guilt, blame, projecting onto others your own shame, or sins.
The Hanged Man is also the Norse God ODIN being suspended from the World tree Ygdrassil in order to obtain Higher Knowledge. The Ruins were devised from this mythology.
Turn your head towards the earth, towards instincts and intuition.
Everything you have been taught is ass backwards.
LET GO AND LET GOD.
Allow the Universe to take over, stop struggling. You are not in control really.
Years ago I attended an amazing spiritual tarot initiation workshop given by a man who is a long time Tibetan Buddhist teacher, a Mason, who has devoted 45 years of his life to being on the spiritual path. The participants all had to embody literally each of the Tarot trump majors. I got to be THE HANGED MAN. I was suspended upside down by my ankle from a pole and hung -not too far off the ground. It hurts to be the HANGED MAN.
How are you feeling this? Your feedback is most welcomed.

ART, artists, Astrology
VENUS besides ruling women, relationships, values, money, luxury also rules beauty and the ARTS.
I was born with Venus in Libra.
I started out telling my very surprised mother that I was going to be an artist when I grew up when I was nine years old.
I loved to draw,and danced from the age of 5, loved to sing,and wrote poems, dreamed and fantasized a lot. I was interested in metaphysics, mysticism, the occult since I was very young. I was always a unique individual, against the mainstream, also born psychic. Art allowed me to express my soul.
Art and all artistic endeavours, painting, music, dance, writing, acting are all ruled by VENUS, who co-rules Feminine earthy sensual Taurus and the airy Masculine sign of LIBRA.
NEPTUNE is considered to be Libra’s Higher Octave, and in modern Western tropical astrology Neptune rules the sign of PISCES, the sign of spirit, of the Source, which all artists must channel through. Neptune rules illusions, fantasy, film and photography, addictions, delusions.
As Venus is in Libra now and will be From Oct.28 to Nov.21st Venus the Goddess of beauty is impelling me to talk about ART. ART is necessary to feed the beauty of your soul. In Europe and in most 3rd world countries, Art is a part of everyone’s daily life. Art is as essential as your daily bread.
Neptune rules artists as shaman’s, shape shifters. They must channel through spirit and many are alcoholics, addicts as the dark side of Neptune.
With Neptune at zero degrees of its own sign NOW and for the next 14 years. ART and Spirituality will be a very important part of our need for beauty and artistic creative self expression.
I was born with Venus in Libra exactlly conjunct NEPTUNE at 20 degrees. I can’t really separate Neptune from Venus.
So to me Art is always about spirtuality, the soul expressing itself. Especially in visual arts, as the soul always speaks in images, symbols, icons, in dreams, it has no real spoken language. We are naturally image makers.
So lets look at Venus in Libra and Neptune in some famous artists charts.
click on chart to view larger
Born illegitimately on April 15 1452 Old Style, his birth date has been changed to accord with Gregorian calendars to April 23 with a birth time recorded as close to 9:40 pm. The chart has been used by Astro data Bank.
Leonardo has Venus dignified in Taurus @ 24 degrees in the 6th house of work discipline, service. Born with Neptune Retrograde at Zero degrees of LIBRA, Venus trines Neptune which is the highest elevated Planet in the 10th house of worldly fame. Saturn sign of hard work, discipline is also in Libra where it is exalted.
Jupiter is in his home Feminine sign of PISCES.
the ruler of Pisces in Traditional astrology is conjunct Leonardo’s very imaginative, spiritual, mutable, artistic Moon,which it rules in the 3rd house of communications.
Leonardo also has a SAGITTARIUS Ascendant
6 degrees of Sagittarius. Also ruled by Jupiter. Jupiter is expansive, metaphysical, aiming higher, reaching for the stars, honest. I was pleasantly surprised to see it is the degree of my Sun!
PICASSO born Oct 25 1881 Malaga Spain 11:15 pm
Has Venus at 4 degrees of LIBRA dignified in his 3rd house of communicating
Was born with 5 planets in TAURUS, all Venus ruled
Saturn at 9 degrees Retrograde in the 10th house
Neptune at 15 degrees Taurus Retrograde in the 10th
Chiron at 22 degrees Taurus in the 10th house
Jupiter at 23 degrees TAurus retrograde in the 10th house
Pluto at 28 degrees Taurus Retrograde in the 10th house
If anyone was born with a chart to be a wealthy world-famous artist it is definitely PICASSO!
and co-incidentally Picasso‘s Moon, his Unconscious is at 8 degrees of Sagittarius conjunct his North Node at 9 degrees Sagittarius which is also conjunct to Leonardo’s chart. Which makes me think that perhaps Leonardo re-incarnated as Picasso. Those specific Sagittarius degrees are also conjunct to major fixed Star Antares.
ART SHOWS to see while Venus is in LIBRA
Toronto is a big art Town. Nuit Blanche Toronoto’s Annual all night art crawl has 500,000 people attending. Famous for TIFF, theatre and music.
Get to Toronto to see Napoleon Brousseau’s new show of amazing portrait paintings
Opening Saturday November 10 in Toronto Canada
at the Robert Kananaj Gallery
called RETURNING: Fantome de la Memorie
Created in an utterly unique style, using hand cut rollers, which the artist makes to rotary print a repetitive pattern in a shamanic like state. They are then sealed with epoxy and ground down and then brush work is applied. Some paintings take years to make.
These are really phenomenal portraits of memory phantoms, ghost dreams, half remembered figments, eidolons, spirit images.
The opening is Sat. Nov. 10 from 5:00 – 9:00 pm
The artist will be present, show continues till Dec 8.
