Lucky observers will likely catch a very brief outburst of alpha Monocerotid meteors this Thursday night (or Friday morning). Astronomers say the meteors will fall at a rate of 400 meteors per hour at the peak, or several meteors per minute. The key is … you’ve got to be at the right place, at exactly the right time.via Will you see this week’s meteor outburst?
I was meditating this morning when I woke up. I have asked for more clarity into 2016.
I had seen this sword like the Ace of swords and the Lady of the Lake appear already. This is a variation on Saturn in Sagittarius centaur aiming its arrows at the Galactic Center.
I cottoned onto the Hermit as a #9 year, literally. Also the Sage which is the origin of the word Sagittarius.
This morning I saw the Unicorn in a vision.
I knew that felt right.. I have always had an affinity for unicorns. The traditional tapestry The Hunt of the Unicorn from the 1500’s is at the Cloisters in New York. I saw it years ago and it was breathtaking. When I lived in the country in Virginia years ago I saw a triangular-shaped fence which is what holds unicorns and I used to see one captured there.
~Unicorns have long been a representation of the Moon, the mysterious, intuitive, magick found within the unicorn. There are at least eight mentions of the unicorn in the Old Testament,
The original tale of the unicorn was that of the Goddess which was later overlaid as the Virgin Mary who trapped a unicorn, whereupon the unicorn became tame and lay its head in her lap.
As the legend grew through reinterpretation, the unicorn was viewed as the Christ or Incarnation and the death of a unicorn as the Passion of Christ. This allowed a pagan symbol to become highly esteemed within the church. In fact, a grouping or herd of unicorns is called a “blessing” of unicorns. The horn, resembling that of a narwhals, presumably had curative powers that allowed the unicorn to detoxify water. This is an important meaning for 2016.
Unicorns are also prominent in heraldic symbolism, usually with a spiral horn, sometimes of red and black. In heraldry, unicorns are often shown with a collar and a broken chain, indicating that they have freed themselves from bondage and cannot be taken again.
The unicorn is both a masculine phallic symbol and a feminine symbol of the moon a symbol of alchemy and temperance.
The magical powers of unicorns are also legendary. Unicorn horns are said to be harder than diamonds and to be able to neutralize poisons. Unicorn tears can heal both physical wounds and sorrows of the heart.
A person with the ability to see a unicorn may have a wish granted as a reward. Unicorns are often reputed to have the ability to fly. Some unicorns are believed to be able to speak to all kinds of other creatures.
In modern literature, the lure and mystery of unicorns remains. In the recent Harry Potterseries by J.K. Rowlings, powerful wands are made with a core of unicorn hair. The blood of a unicorn is also reputed to keep a person alive even if he is very close to death. The ongoing body of literature associated with unicorns and the powers attributed to them will undoubtedly continue to add to their value as symbols of freedom, healing and beauty.
Call upon the Unicorn to visit you in your dreams and in your meditations.
Let me know if you see one.

The Lady and the Unicorn by John Renbourn https://youtu.be/TrPgm8OE6pY?list=RDTrPgm8OE6pY
I just got back from a wonderful weekend teaching at the Grail Springs spa in Bancroft Ontario. It was beautiful, covered in about 2 feet of snow all pristine and white. It was -27 degrees Celsius Friday night! This is normal for Northern Ontario in Winter. The energy is very high at the Grail and feels extremely open. It is easy to get access to higher planes of consciousness as it is a spiritual portal, a lot of that is due to the land itself. The entire area is Canada’s mineral capital and there are many types of crystals, some of which appear in rocky outcrops. You can feel the healing presence of the crystals.
What with all the stresses of the planets I highly recommend that you get out to the country as much as you can. Ground yourself in Nature. Do yoga and Qigong. Eat all or as much as you can of organic food. Do specific detox procedures, drink lots of hot water with lemon and a bit of cayenne all day. Use seaweed to extract toxins, steam baths, infra-red saunas and the like to enhance the functioning of your organs. Eating vegan as much as possible, it raises your consciousness, heals your body and you feel fantastically light.
All of these things these do wonders for the body, mind and soul. It is very important in these times of such planetary stress to nurture our bodies, which are the temples of our temples.
The Moon is in Capricorn Jan 19-22 and makes those stressful Cardinal Squares again Monday.

I am still working on my 2014 predictions for some newspapers. Deadline is soon.
I am also thinking about the Chinese New Year and how that compliments or not, Western Astrology and Grand Cardinal Crosses. The Chinese New Year always begins on a New Moon. On Jan 30 @ 11:20 pm PST the year of the WOOD HORSE begins.
Immediately I think of the Trojan Horse, a toy horse, a rocking horse, a merry go round horse or a horse that is connected to nature, the physical world and abundance. I am not a Chinese Astrology expert but am fascinated with it. Billions of Asians trust and faithfully follow their Astrology system as with Feng Shui, Taoist, I Ching, and other ancient metaphysical systems of knowledge. China has an unbroken lineage of over 5,000 years. Much like India, whose Astrology origins are said to be 12,000 years old, and Indigenous Inka and other shamanic traditions.
Unfortunately in the West our Astrology traditions, originating from India, come down to us from Babylonian, Sumerian, Egyptian, Greek,Islamic and European traditions. The first science then merged, was chopped, dropped, misinterpreted, spliced and then discredited by the Church and the “modernists scientific” movement. Yet Newton was an Alchemist, he died from Mercury poison. But I wander here.
The WOOD HORSE YEAR
Feels intuitively to me like- RACY. We’re off to the races. Energy will be swift, independent, high spirited, moving much faster. Travel, adventure, “pack mentality” standing your ground, far reaching. Listen to the pounding of the horses’ hoofs on the ground.
“Hi Yo Silver away.” Do you know where that comes from?
The horse is much revered in China. Considered to be magical, with super powers . The Goddess Kwan Yin has a magical white celestial cloud horse which flies through the skies bringing blessings and good luck. Think of PEGASUS from Greek mythology or Unicorns. Very magical indeed, Harry Potterish.
The Chinese Zodiac is related to the yearly transit of the Planet Jupiter through each of the 12 Astrology signs and is sidereal. Horse is equal to the sign of GEMINI in the West. Because of the precession of the Equinoxes, Jupiter is in Gemini now against the stars in real time and entering Cancer later this year.
This adds further impetus to my sense of a very fast furious year in 2014, with many arguments, condemnations, furor, and clashes between people. Power struggles, Trying to tame the wild untamed- everything. Using your gut instincts, much nostril flaring. It feels competitive.
When I was a child I pretended I was a horse. Nothing made me happier than kicking up my hoofs and trotting home or cantering and neighing. Try it.
People born in Horse years
2002, 1990, 1978, 1966, 1954, 1942, 1930, 1918, 1906 and of course in 2014 are bright cheerful, fun-loving and childlike. They will benefit the most from this year as well as people who are born in the year of the Tiger, Dog or Sheep or if you have those animals in your year, month , day and hour.
