JUNE 20 a MIDSUMMER NIGHT’S DREAM
“Lord what fools these mortals be”- Puck
Midsummer Eve by Edward Robert Hughes 1908
This evening, the night before the Summer Solstice is the Famous one Shakespeare wrote about. A day of sexual frolicking in the fields. The fairies are out in the forests. The SUN reaches his PEAK in the sky and begins to slowly wain and die. He surrenders his power to the GODDESS the Queen of SUMMER and fertility who makes the plants grow to feed her children and to ensure new life.
This Year Moon conjuncts Venus and JUPITER in LEO so very romantic, proud, daring, dramatic, big-hearted it will be.
Mercury is finally over its storm period but will take till June 27 to pass its Retrograde station point.
SUMMER BEGINS in the Northern Hemisphere @ 9:37 am PDT/12:37 pm EDT/4:37 GMT
WINTER BEGINS in the Southern Hemisphere same time
The Sun King reaches the peak of his long journey begun Dec 21st. Called Litha by pagans and witches it is the Celebration of the triumph of the Light which also signifies its demise. The Light dies unto itself and sets sail into the oncoming fall. It is the Celebration of the Longest Light and Night and the Birth of the Season of Summer bringing the greatest vegetation growth.
Astrologically it is the Sun entering zero degrees of Cancer which marks the Summer Solstice. We Celebrate the Summer, romp in the Garden, Have a Solstice Celebration!
Wear a flower crown in your hair. Bonfires are built. At Summer Solstice we state what it is we are pregnant with, nourishing, nurturing feeding, our literal children or our creations, ideas, desires, feelings. We carry this and give birth, and the fields, flowers, produce grows, soaks up the sun’s most intense rays in Leo and is finally ready to be Harvested under the sign of Virgo the Virgin Goddess of the Grain. In agricultural societies all life depended on the food grown, the produce that would be stored, dried, preserved,for life to continue safely and securely.
The sign of Cancer rules the Mother and the mothering principle, ruled by the Moon herself. The Moon is the Goddess and women’s cycles.The earliest calendars discovered showed 28 dots on them and were created by menstruating women most likely or men following the moon’s and women’s menstrual cycles. The moon means time.
Cancer is water,the womb, feelings, emotions, moods, instincts, the oceans, wells, home, safety, security, emotional needs, food, nurturing, safety, security, nurses, caretakers, support workers, caves, river deltas, roots, nests,the root chakra, the womb, memories, the Unconscious, your childhood, flow, the Goddess Diana, all Moon Goddesses, and all Female Goddesss pregnant with the Moon.
In the Tarot Cancer is the Sign associated with Tarot Trump # 7 THE CHARIOT
The Chariot Tarot Horse Goddess by Emily Balivet
In Ancient Egypt the Summer Sign was symbolized by the Scarab beetle before it was associated with the Crab. The scarab or dung beetle rolling a ball of dung and was seen to be like a God rolling the golden orb of the Sun across the skies. The dung beetle was the shepherd or charioteer assisting the Sun’s passage in the sky. The scarab is a symbol of immortality. The sign of Cancer symbolized alchemy because the insect was a lowly creature, ordinary, lowly turning with its’ labours dung into worth = gold.
The esoteric meaning of Cancer is that the CHARIOT is the VEHICLE, the means of travel. The Chariot symbolizes the Body as Vehicle for the Soul. Our Mother’s bodies were our personal chariot’s. They nurtured and carried us, gave birth to us through their vaginas, also a road, a passageway, a tunnel to the outside world from inner earth.The Hopi Indians say they emerged from inside of the earth.
Mother is the Universal source for all life, When we gaze at the moon we instinctively remember her womb.
So during the month of Cancer, feel your feelings and your body. Be near water, drink lots of water, feel pregnant, swelling, expanding, bonded, needing to nest, eating well, resting, listening to your tummy.
Like the lotus which grows from mud, and the lowly dung beetle which rolls its ball of dung, the beautiful iridescent moon like pearl is formed from a single grain of sand. You won’t be lacklustre during Cancer month. You can turn every irritating or single grain of sand into a beautiful pearl.

in the YEAR of the Black Water SNAKE – The DIVINE FEMININE IS RETURNING we are shedding our old skins and washing them away

DRENCHED, OVERFLOWING, DELUGED in WATER,CRY ME A RIVER, crying in the rain,
WATER is going to come up as the most important resource this year and in many years to come.
Time to emotionally and spiritually connect to the SOURCE,
In old symbolism WATER is consciousness.
Do some random and hidden act of kindness for someone with no expectation of return.
we need to be MERMAIDS and MERMEN, SIRENS; like AQUAMAN, sing AQUALUNG by JETHRO TULL
to get into the mode.
YES People please it is so critical to surrender our ego’s and feel what we are truly- SOULS HAVING A DREAM OF BEING HUMAN
We ARE Spiritual beings, soul is all that matters, eternal soul, our soular logos remembers, the Eternal, Infinite Self knows everything we have done, we need to cleanse all our old karma and reset, renew, revive our SOULS>
NEPTUNE is sitting on Fixed STAR Fomalhaut- Archangel Gabriel who blows the trumpet on Judgement DAY
so we KNOW we are being guided by the ANGELS
I had an amazing dream year ago. PISCES is all about THE DREAM
This LUCID dream occurred in the early 90’s.
In it I went to visit my first cousin Carol Karasik, she is a writer who used to live in Washington D.C. I was walking through the street and went to her house, it was full of beautiful old antiques. This was a dream house, not her actual one. I walked through the house, but she wasn’t there. I sat down in front of a TV set and turned it on. It is very rare to be watching TV in dreams because it is another level of visioning, at least for me. I was watching a show on MTV and it showed Bette Midler wearing black, singing and dancing.
In the next scene Andy Warhol is lying on a bed, sort of catatonic. Bette gets into bed with him and makes love to him and they exchange sexes. She becomes Andy and Andy becomes her. Then Andy/Bette gets up and walks out through a wall.
The 3rd scene in the play is Bette Midler wearing a black tux, top hat and tails like in the old 1930’s movie musicals. She has a chorus of women also dressed in black behind and around her. It is a courtroom with a judge on a stand and a jury. Bette Midler sings and then says “I stand before you to plead my case” .. There is a pause, it seems the jury has to decide her fate.
The next scene is Bette Midler dressed in white smiling and beaming saying I WIN! Trumpets sound and everyone is dancing around. And then the narrator appears and says Bette Midler don’t you just love her?” It was a LUCID dream and I felt elated. I’d passed my own judgement day and won.
I wish for YOU to feel the same elation.
AND all this PISCES energy will ebb and flow away momentarily, later that same day!
MARS ENTERS ARIES @ 11:25 PM PST/March 12 EST @ 2:26 am
MARCH 12- big huge elemental shift things start to heat up and the fog begins to burn off
MOON enters Aries @ 4:17 am/7:17 am and FIRE element starts to burn
MOON conjunct MARS @ 4:35 am PST/7:35 am EST-
ARIES MOON CONJUNCTS URANUS @ 6:06 pm PST/9:06 pm EST-WAR, Aggression, explosions,
March 13 ARIES MOON SQUARES PLUTO @ 1:02 am PST/ 4:02 am EST then goes Void of course.- ATOMIC EXPLOSIONS! North Korea attacks?
For Pisces Peeps -surrender to the Bliss you remember in your cells
ITS EASY for all water signs, CANCER & SCORPIO and all earth signs, TAURUS, VIRGO,CAPRICORN
For GEMINI and SAGITTARIUS who are squared by all the PISCES Energy well JUPITER is helping as Jupiter rules PISCES traditionally
so the duality of GEMINI- THE LOVERS in the TAROT is actually a PISCES singularity.
For other FIRE SIGNS – ARIES & LEO-for LEO it is hardest- quincunx- the ego and non-ego states don’t mesh
ARies has URANUS burning up the illusions and demanding revolution for all Aries born in early to mid degrees .
For other AIR SIGNS – LIBRA and AQUARIUS
Libra & Pisces also rub each other the wrong way, Libra can be too superficial and fear real intimacy.
Aquarius is so detached, but not in a difficult aspect to PISCES itself.
Each of us has PISCES somewhere in our charts – which house is the PISCES bottleneck happening in? That will show you what areas in your life are needing to be cleansed by SPIRIT and made whole again.
It’s the HANGED MAN in the TAROT
an emotional Baptism it shows ODIN hung upside down by Ygdrasil the WORLD TREE, that’s how Odin received the RUNES
allow your mind and ego to be inverted, one needs to be still, in the heart,
YOUR mind is not you and not in control that is the illusion of the ego.
Surrender to BLISS, you are never alone, have faith, TRUST

MARS, planet of men, war, libido, action, defenses, entered VIRGO, 6th sign of the ZODIAC November 11, 2011
Yes that’s right! 11:11:11 that very powerful master number,in numerology. That’ s significant in itself.
If you know about the 11:11 phenomena it is a pre-encoded memory jogger to remind humanity that we are actually spiritually enlightened beings housed in this temporal fragile human body.
VIRGO is a Feminine earth sign. Mars was loitered around polishing his big boots in the 6th house of work, servants, community, health, discipline, budgets, accounting, analysis and criticism.
Virgo is an ancient constellation whose symbol is the VIRGIN GODDESS of the harvest and ruled by planet Mercury, just as GEMINI is.
Mars loitered around polishing his big boots in the 6th house of work, servants, community, health, discipline, budgets, accounting, analysis and criticism. That interminably extra long Retrograde period started GROUNDHOG DAY – April 13 2012 which felt like the days the earth stood still. Nothing was moving! Remember?
So now finally at last, Mars moves into LIBRA sign of KARMIC JUSTICE , July 3 on a FULL MOON till Aug 23.
For a fast-moving planet like MARS to spend about 8 months in one sign, norm being 2 months, whats up wit dat?
Men have been initiated into the FEMININE VIRGO EARTH realm.
Lets review our 7 months and 23 days Mars pregnancy !
MONSANTO’S GMO demon seeds have been outlawed in many European countries. Virgo= HARVEST. No harvest with GMO
OBAMA health care has been initiated.Women’s rights in health care has been newsworthy.
The European economy has gone through budget crisees bailing out Greece, Spain, Italy. If these measures are not VIRGO sound, the European economy will fold. Perhaps on purpose.
Mars was Trine Pluto and Jupiter for part of that time. T’was good for early Taurus and Capricorn
VIRGO rules the intestines and I had three weeks during the Retro of difficulty digesting. I spoke to many people who had the same problem. How bout you?
VIRGO rules organizing, accounting and accountability. We have seen signs that people, corporations, police, governments have been held more accountable for their actions.
11:11:11 was a very spiritual experience for me and a lot of people. I was in Sedona with friends to celebrate and do special ceremonies. The Retro beginning on GROUNDHOG DAY is LOL symbolic and just like the Bill Murray movie’ s message. We are repeating our old outworn masculine power over shit until we finally GET IT!
VIRGO is an intelligent sign. The old patriarchal structures, hardline, separation stuff doesn’t work anymore. All that machismo has raped the earth for the last 5,000 years. It can’t continue or no one will survive.
The US and Isreal could’ve gone ahead and attacked IRAN but they did not!- that’s MArs Retrograde – not budging.
VENUS, Mars paramour was Retrograde and had the historic once in a lifetime final tango with the Sun. Venus just went DIRECT June 27. I was away leading workshops at the GRAIL LADY FAIRE at that time and wasnt able to write about it.
Old lovers and friends may have shown up in your life during the Mars retro; old patterns appeared in yer face to see them and work through them. Often painful but necessary. Issues around your work, like it or hate it have been mulled over,but wait till Mars in Scorpio to act.
Discipline, health, diet, yoga,retooling your work, organizing, renovating, these were all Mars in Virgo issues. Much reading and re-reading- Virgos love BOOKS. Were you polishing up your S & M gear while reading 50 Shades of Grey in anticipation of Mars in Scorpio?
Lets give thanks to Mars in Virgo for grounding us, literally.
we’re all ready for a fresh sign. MARS in LIBRA
is debilitated in LIBRA it’s the sign opposite his own of ARIES.
Past loves and old friends that came up in th past few months should get a KARMIC rebooting and/or rebalancing over then next 7 weeks.
Victorian Tarot Deck, Justice # 8 or #11
Then things really get hot as Mars stays in Scorpio till Oct 7th.
Mars in Libra hi lites BALANCE in relationships,karmic comeuppance, great parties,lazing about,money, values, art.
MARS conjunct SATURN AUG 15- so mark that day in RED on your calendars.
This combo is reputed to be the heaviest, karmic, accident prone explosive aspect.
Stay positive, all our thoughts and emotional states are manifesting directly so fast now.
Bless all experiences that come to you. Process them,let go, move on.
Mars in Libra reminds me of the Egyptian Goddess MA’AT
She weighs the hearts of the dead on herLIBRAN scales of Justice against her ostrich feather plume crown. IF one’s heart is heavier than the feather, the deceased person must go back to earth and finish lightening their hearts before they can truly move on to HEAVEN.
Musical accompaniment is DONOVAN – Wear your love like heaven http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5i0zq91Ocz0
