“The meaning of life is to find your gift. The purpose of life is to give it away.”
– Pablo Picasso
They say only a sane person knows they’re crazy; and for most people that comes from some hard-won insights. Or a bottle of tequila.
For me it’s all relative. I have so many Leo friends in my life that almost everyone I know is crazy. These are the folks who tiptoe through the tulips while wearing a cape, whistling a tune, and painting the sky with geraniums, gold, and generosity.
They shine! And that’s where the Sun is headed for the next few weeks, the creamy, caring, crazy, uber-creative vibes of the sign of Leo. Yay! Who couldn’t use some of that right about now?
Many people are turning inside out in frustration because nothing seems to have changed. Same shit, different day, and all that. Yet a lot of difficulties continue because people haven’t figured out that we’re in the middle of a—*cough, cough* Ascension *cough*—deep soul transformation. Most of these problems are now voluntary.
Look out the window. It may be subtle at first, and it may take a while to come to completion*, but Ascension has already begun. The mechanics of moving on from this density of Light are going to be different for everyone but what do I have to do? Draw a picture with little angels and an arrow pointing to Big Mama? People are now beginning to manifest reality directly from Source.
It’s really easy to tell who is on their way, too: it’s those who put their neighbors first; the service-to-others crowd. These folks aren’t waiting for Fulford to ninja-kick the Cabal back to the dark ages. And they aren’t waiting for the President, the GFL, or NESARA, either. They’re creating the future they want now whether people are on board with it or not.
We have problems, for sure, and they’ve been dragging on forever, yes, but something amazing is happening. We’re figuring out the reason the world isn’t a brilliant beacon of love and hope is because we haven’t started shining. Silly as it is, we’ve been waiting for a miracle to change the world when we haven’t created it yet.
There is a rallying cry for Leo’s: love relentlessly.
Create passion, feeling, and ecstasy so abundantly, so consistently, that the old world of grief and competition is made irrelevant. Never let up. Swing the pendulum so far towards global harmony that it will take generations for the Dark to get over all that joy.
Take the initiative. Live from the Heart like a Leo! Be bold. Let the world know this is the moment we’ll look back and say, that was it! That was when the shift happened, that was when Gaia found peace.
As long as our love shines like a Star, we’ll never be too far from our Path; as long as we stay true to each other, we’ll always be a light of hope for others.
Just gotta, you know, remember to shine.
~ Whoomp! There It Is! ~
The month of Leo starts with a bang (July 22 – August 23*). Not only does Saturn turn direct but Uranus goes retrograde and Jupiter also changes signs.
Leaving aside the obvious impact of Uranus reversing course in the volcanic fires of Aries—think rebel without a cause—Jupiter will move into Leo on July 16th. It’ll be a huge boon to artists and imaginative thinkers all over the planet.
This is great news for creative people. Things will come easy at this time. Paint will seem to flow off the brush, voices in song will lilt in pleasing ways, marble will magically take harmonious shape, and wordsmiths can throw away the thesaurus. Not just for artists, either, but healers and anyone who uses their sheer will to bring balance into being. Expect sudden advances with tough clients in the naturopathic arts.
For folks who have been living in the dark, or worse, actually helping the Matrix along, Jupiter in Leo will be a huge pain in the butt. Remember, the Illuminati consider themselves a stand-in what they perceive as the missing universal Great Architect, or God. When Jupiter shows up, it reveals their false light.
Karma’s a bitch, but it also seems to have a sense of humor. Seeing people free themselves from the chains that you’ve helped put there, the same chains that are now entangling you, must really bite. And Jupiter will remain in the house of creativity, heart-based love, personal sovereignty and expression until next summer. Bummer. I feel so bad for the Illuminati, I forgot to cry.
Change is a-coming. I think everyone can feel that now. It’s like a light trying to find us in the dark—all we need to do is leave the safety of the shadows and let it discover us. After all, we did put out the call, why make it harder for the Goddess to help us?
This month will really shake up a lot of people. That can either be a good thing or a bad thing. A psychic earthquake to one person is just a higher frequency to another. It depends on whether folks are ready for a good shaking, I suppose.
Here’s hoping that everyone is ready.
Oh! And psst!
Saturn changes signs at the end of the year. For those who can’t take one more day of the Old Devil’s lessons on death and regeneration—Saturn is passing through Scorpio’s Underworld, after all—it’s all going to end. We should be seeing that now as we head into the final turn and Saturn begins to move into the cusp influence of Sagittarius.
When that happens, we’ll stop learning karmic lessons about life, death, and rock n’ roll, switch classes, and open a new textbook on the dangers of hysteria when good religions go bad.
I can’t wait to get started!
~ Wounding the Sacred Feminine ~
There comes a time when we have to ask ourself: who are we and what do we have to say to the world? Really answer it, too.
Most people reading this article have been there, but I’m asking everyone to stop and have another peek behind the curtains. On August 1st–2nd, Mars will square a conjunct Mercury / Jupiter (personal mental and life challenge) while Venus trines Saturn (lessons come easy).
This month will hold particular significance to anyone who has been waiting…and waiting…and waiting…for the Aquarian Age to start. Our meditations of late hold a lot of answers—IF we can put it all together. The Great Aha is just a thought away, honey, so get puttin’!
This year (well, since the Spring of 2012, in this Witch’s opinion) will be thought of as when the Great Awakening began. I know it was much, much sooner for the Wayshowers and Starseeds, but we’re not all from another planet, are we? This is the year we reach critical mass, the 100th monkey, when we all turn to each other and say, “You, too? Nice to finally see you again!”
This is when all Gaians begin to do it for themselves. It’s when they begin to see themselves in each other’s eyes. It’s when the exodus from the Matrix really gets going.
That will be a huge relief for folks getting a bit tired of holding the escape hatch open. I know we’re all exhausted, but try and hang in there a little longer. Turn to our sisters and brothers who are hanging in there, too, because they (aka you) need our support now more than ever.
And please understand that we can’t keep asking the women of the world to put so much of themselves on the line each day. Just because someone has a pussy doesn’t mean they’re the only ones that have to shoulder the burden of planetary care. I know there are some men who are doing just that, but seriously, come on guys, time to pitch in here.
Reach out, lend a hand, and let these amazing, resilient, over-worked souls take a rest. I know powerful women and not a single one says she’s quitting, but a bit of help, a thank you, or at least a smile, would go a long way at this point.
For folks who haven’t figured it out yet, I’m putting a lot of stock in women working out this patriarchal mess. It will be the woman who won’t let one more of her children die at the hands of warmongers, the one who won’t go down one more time to satisfy the social order, the one who refuses to keep paying the price of inequality.
And woe be to the person that stands in the way of that woman. Like dominoes falling, each act of injustice, each subtle—and not so subtle—humiliation, each unhealed, untended, and unloved wound will gain momentum until her raging indignity brings the entire system down; each woman’s cry adding to the next, each woman refusing to hold up her dominator one more day, until the patriarchy crumbles under its own bloated balls.
Hear that? In case it’s hard to tell, that’s the sound of every woman on the planet shouting, “Bring it on!”
~ Full Moon in Aquarius ~
The Moon serves up some warm and yummy breakthroughs on toast this month. Add in some revolutionary oatmeal, a sprinkle of spirituality, a slice of social justice, and voila! I think we’re ready for breakfast!
Her Lunar Majesty goes full in the sign of Aquarius on August 10th at 2:09 pm EDT. Nothing but nurturing our innovative side for the next few weeks. That, and helping move this giant stone out of the road.
The magic of working as a group, though, is that every person who brings integrity makes everyone else come alive a little more. Working towards a committed, positive, common goal seems to turn 100% effort into 150%. The job not only gets done quicker, but it gets done with better results.
Likewise, an Aquarian Moon will bring out the best in everyone. It will show us our what we’re truly capable of and give us the strength to do it. If anyone has been waiting for a go signal, now is that time. Especially with a protective, loving Leo Sun blazing overhead.
This Moon will also illuminate anything that has been holding us back. Prepare to have a lot of bonds broken and left behind. A new day is dawning, and the road to tomorrow is now firmly under our feet. If folks can’t see that, it may be time to take a gander at how far they’ve come.
A few days later on August 15th, just as Mercury enters Virgo giving us all a practical outlook, Jupiter will be inconjunct Neptune. It will redirect the energy of misunderstandings towards resolution and provide a solid ground for building better relationships.
* * *
As we can see, this month is really shaping up to be an ooey-gooey love-fest. It will give us all a chance to heal, regroup, and get a fresh perspective on each other and the world situation.
All good news. However, I do caution people to be ready for sudden shifts. With so much in flux, it can be easy to lose our equilibrium and fall back into old patterns. When that happens, we lose our grip and the door slams shut on all those coming up behind.
What? You say you have to take responsibility for yourself first? Funny, I didn’t see anything about that on your cosmic resume. Why the heck would anyone apply for the job of saving a planet when they put saving their own butt first?
Just something to think about while gazing at the Moon this month.
~ I Think I’d Rather Misbehave ~
With so much talk of bringing down the system lately, I simply couldn’t resist sharing ‘Dirty Laundry’ by Bittersweet. This gal knows how to have enjoy herself while upsetting a few applecarts.
Not only did I want folks to have fun this month, but to get their rebel on while they do it. Laughter and merriment always slays the monster. All we have to do is stop running and start tapping our toes to the beat of social change.
It’s time to start dancing all over the Illuminati. I mean really cha-cha all over these fuckers. They shrink from happiness and self-fulfillment the way a vampire recoils from the light.
And why not show a little shoulder while we’re at it? It’s in our nature to be playful and sassy and, lets face it, a bit naughty. It’s time to take back our sexuality from these sociopathic pedophiles who try to infect us with the idea that photoshopped, prepubescent images of girls who look boys are the ideal woman.
Why are we using their sick standards and norms to define our intimate, sexual culture(s), anyway? No one sees a problem with trying to fit into their perverted, little world?
So, if we abuse children and screw over our neighbors for our own gratification, we’re okay, and if we honor the soulful artistry in others in the same way we honor ourself, we need medication and Tavistock Institute therapy?
There’s only one thing to do in the face of insane choices: kick up our heels and dance like we’ve never danced before.
Dance a new world into being, one based on love, authenticity, and respect. Get up on a table, let it rip for all to see, and then stage-dive unabashed into the great churning masses of human love.
As the Sun passes through Leo this month, a sign that knows how to take it where no woman has gone before, a sign born to color outside the lines, feel free to take it to whole new level, as well. Even if that takes all the love we can muster.
And a bottle of tequila.

*** The sun enters Leo on July 22nd at 5:41 pm EDT.
**** I have received a couple of emails asking why I just don’t talk about the month of July, August, September, etc., instead of using these confusing late-in-the-month to late-in-the-month periods for the signs.
Well, first of all, I’m pretty sure I can’t single-handedly change when these dates occur without pissing off every astrologer on the planet. But I have a question, too:
Why is anyone still using the Julian Calendar to mark time? For that matter, why is anyone marking time at all? This is some of that voluntary stuff I was talking about above.
I know it can all get confusing, and very frustrating, but I urge people to review the way they’re doing things. We are accustomed to using a concept once it’s been formed, but not to reevaluate and readjust the concept once problems arise. We do things because “that’s the way it is”.
I say all this because transformative magick is all around us, and I’ve grown oh, so tired of people saying they’re tired of waiting when they aren’t even starting. Again, if you can’t see the change then change your perspective.
We’re waiting for you.
***** It is my opinion that the first wave of Ascension will come to completion around 2025, or thereabouts. (Or, as we say in Canada, thar-boots. Eh?) There is going be a shitstorm of debate over this as we draw near the end of the decade so get ready for it.
All I can really say is that anyone who is already on their way won’t even notice by that time, we’ll be too busy helping others. Besides, it’s hard to watch people dally in disagreement and getting their kudos when so many people still need some support.
****** Finally, I’m re-posting a reader note from last year about where I picked up my occult knowledge.
I don’t think putting letters before and after a name means much, well, not in the way it’s intended, anyway. I actually wonder why anyone in their right mind would ever attend an accredited school for anything beyond medicine, trauma first response, or (maybe) teaching, but I’ll provide my experience here so I don’t have to keep answering this question.
I would also like to say that though I brushed up against the Illuminati, it left me feeling so cold it took me years to integrate it all. It had no welcoming vitality. Sometimes the light of knowledge burns too brightly; and other times it can just burn.
However, no one has been able to pull the wool over my eyes since the mid-80′s. For what it’s worth, I’m very grateful for the experience.

When I was asked to join the O.T.O. (Ordo Templi Orientis. Think: ‘Illuminati gateway drug’), I was clearly told to keep ‘some things’ to myself. Though I ultimately said no to the Order, as a prospective member, I gained access to a vast, arcane library, one I had been searching for my entire life. I mean so many occult books, there were stacks on the floor that wouldn’t fit on the shelves. As a bibliophile, I was on Cloud 9.
And some of these were in mansions, too. It was hard not be swayed by the opulent settings and magickal authority that permeated my world at that time.
Even though I never officially put my name on an Oath where I would be ‘on pain of death’ if I revealed secrets, there were subtle hints that bad things would happen if anyone ever said anything publicly about 0 and 1st degree discussions in private meetings. I can think of a dark, October night in the back of a metaphysical bookstore that opened my mind to the stars and beyond. Talking about that would have been a no-no, for example.
I was born awake in the fullest, mystical sense of the word, and I have spent my life trying to find out why. It hasn’t been a lot of fun for me.
When you’re 17, dropping acid, listening to George Harrison’s ‘Within You, Without You’, and seeing the connection to all living things with a friend? Yeah, that can be a hoot. When you’re in the 3rd grade, when fitting in with everyone else is the most important thing in the world, and you see horrible things happening days ahead of time that no one else sees? Not so much.
When I met a group of people who not only had similar stories, but my empathic sense trusted, as well, I figured it was best to do as asked. Especially, if it meant I had access to a huge, occult library.
Out of respect for the Art and Science of Magick, I have kept those secrets faithfully as they were passed on to me all those years ago. And I have…
