Sunday inspiration: Rethinking the future by Deepak Chopra and Zach Bush MD

These are two thinkers I greatly admire.  I have long felt that this virus, which cannot be defined or predicted, is an emissary from Planet Earth to gain back control from the humans who are wreaking havoc and creating a desperate imbalance.  Below is an excerpt from this complete article. 

If we needed more evidence that we are a shortsighted and self-interested species, it is here, but there is no time for self-condemnation. While the world’s leaders struggle to sort out the true implications of this virus, we have an opportunity to finally learn from our mistakes. The lesson is being taught by the humblest of messengers, a microscopic speck of genetic material. The virus is not our enemy—if we let it, it will be our greatest teacher.

First, we need to learn that the emergence of this coronavirus adaptation was predictable, and from Nature’s viewpoint, which oversees all living things, it was even necessary. As the stress levels of an organism increase, the speed of adaptation has to increase if it is to find a solution and survive. Since the beginning of life, the most significant biologic adaptations have been achieved through the viral communication network. Every form of DNA is constantly in touch with every other form. From bacteria in soils and water systems to the cells in our bodies, rapid transmission of new genetic updates can save a species from a new threat.

If you adopt the perspective of life itself, earth is dominated by the genes of bacteria, fungi, and protozoa which hugely outnumber any other life forms. This vast microbial genome is the foundation of life on the planet, and its aim, as with all life forms, is to adapt, survive, and foster diversity. To the […]

Astrological forecast for the week of July 6, 2020

Here’s everything you need to know to get through the week.  In this week’s video I talk a fair amount about Chiron which turns retrograde, and Mercury turning direct.  The transcription is below the promo stuff, but I’m interested to know how many people are actually using the transcription.  It’s a fair amount of work to edit it, and I think a great deal is lost in the translation.  So let me know if you feel like you really need it, and if there aren’t many comments about it I’ll take that as a “no.” 😀 [update: lots of people read the transcriptions! So they will remain. ]

Venmo: Lynn-Hayes-10

Hey everybody, my name is Lynn Hayes. Welcome back to my channel. This week we’re going to talk about the astrological influences that are coming up for the week of July 6 2020.

So we’ve just come off the last of the series of three eclipses. Typically, eclipses come in anywhere from two to four events that all happen at the same time. During those times there can be a heightening or intensification of some of the planetary energies. Right now there’s so much going on in the sky with the Jupiter Pluto conjunction and all the retrogrades, and if this is all Greek to you, don’t worry, I’ll be explaining it in great depth as we go along.

I’d like to start out by just talking about the conjunction between Jupiter and Pluto and I’ve been talking about this.  It’s the second phase of what will be three alignments, following up on a conjunction of Saturn to […]

Sunday inspiration: A new Day of Interdependence

art by Sam Brown

My friend Betsy put this on her Facebook page for July 4th.  You can read her introduction here if you like.  

Interdependence Day

In the course of planetary events it occasionally becomes necessary to remind ourselves that we need each other and the beings and things of this earth. Therefore, we, the people of this planet, declare this to be Interdependence Day.

Each year we take this time to celebrate that we need each other, the plants and animals, dirt and rocks, and air and water all around us, and that they depend upon us.

We are all part of a web of being and each tug of a strand echoes everywhere else, producing the harmony of being and life. It is easy to forget that we really are connected each to each and to act as if we are independent.

On this day we remember our freedom from fear and hate, loss and grief, want and envy as we remember the web that sustains us. Earth and sky protect us from the void, plants and animals sustain us, air and water mix with us each day and other humans labor and love on our behalf, as we do on theirs.

We each give and take every moment of our being and forget this most of our hours and days. On this day each year we revel in the life and freedom all beings and things grant us and acknowledge our part in sustaining this web.

With renewed energy and love we will live the following days more mindful of all about and within us, striving to strengthen the strands between us and guard against cutting them, no matter the temporary comfort […]

The 2020 Solar Return of the US – aka Happy July 4th

us-solar-return We celebrate July 4th as the birthday of the United States, and most astrologers use the Sibly chart for the astrological symbology of the United States (here’s why I use it).  I thought it might be a good time to look at the current astrological forces affecting the United States right now in the midst of a global pandemic. Please note: In writing posts which may have a political bent I try to be as neutral as possible and simply report on the astrology.  However, occasionally my bias may seep through.  I have no wish to censor the comments, but any comments that serve no purpose other than to inflame WILL be deleted. 

As you may know if you’ve been reading this blog, or other articles about the astrology of the US, we are heading into a return of Pluto to its position in the US chart.  Pluto, being the Lord of the Underworld and all, is not a gentle giant.  He has a powerful impact through destruction of the darkness which eventually allows for illumination.  But in the process, we sometimes must go through that Dark Night of the Soul before we can get to the light.

A bit of history

America’s Plutonic journey began back in 2000-2001 when Pluto transited the ascendant in the Sibly chart.  On August 6th, the day that  a report warning of an impending attack by Al Qaeda was presented to President George W Bush, Saturn in Gemini (tests and challenges) formed an exact square to Pluto in exact alignment with the US ascendant at 12 degrees Sagittarius.  The rest, as they say, is history.  Not long after that in 2006, the US progressed Mars (aggression, […]
