We Need to Talk About Robots and Leaflin’s Exquisite Body

Collectively, we are navigating (or being navigated..) through some fairly choppy energy weather over the next few weeks. At the moment, we are in between two eclipses and to further encourage growth, we have Mars (life force) conjoining our symbolic ‘bathtub drain.’

Otherwise known as a channel of release for that which has sustained/taught us well but is no longer worth it’s weight on our trek, in the south node‘s union with Mars the headlines announce a perfectly timed offer. Freely flowing drive and motivation is on tap for All of Us when it comes to letting go of excess junk.

Clues as to what to get rid of will include the flashy looking or otherwise impressive ideas/tech/groups and persons that have proven themselves to be empty within, at least when it comes to your authentic needs. And on the topics of authenticity and needs, the equally obvious question is, Are you willing to give that a go on a personal level? After all, we are just beginning a gradual shift in schooling from Performance/Audience to Sustenance/Security themes.

How might habits, agenda, lifestyle, inner mind wiring have slowly cut off nutrient dense flow to your vision when you weren’t looking. One can’t keep track of everything all the time and so this is quite a positive opportunity to take stock.   objectively speaking   And yet that is exactly the point of the space weather: initiate application of life force and discover it’s easier to clear your way than you believe it will be. Wanna call that for a bluff? Step right up.

As we move towards the July 27th lunar eclipse at 4 Aqua 45, I hope you find the following links give flashy or otherwise impressive-in-a-fulfilling-kind-of-way food for thought. 🙂


timeanddate.com have an impressive, user friendly page for determining visibility of the July 27th eclipse in your location. Simply type in your city or town.


I feel myself in danger of slipping through the cracks of this society, and often wonder if perhaps it is by slipping through the cracks that we might actually find the truth … the world we’ve been waiting to inherit all this time, a world that is whole and in which we are fully alive, unashamed and liberated from the “artificial information field” that clogs the doors of our perceptions and prevents us from trusting our senses. Indeed, what has been touted as “grave danger” may be the beginnings of waking up…    – Leaflin Lore Winecoff  (link for more from her exquisite mind and body)


All I can offer is what has happened before historically. My personal opinion would be just a guess and that is not what clients want to hear. So the sooner the better and the longer this is stalled the worse it gets.  Martin Armstrong  (link)

Indeed, it is precisely in a period of great spiritual and societal hunger like our own that we most need to open minds, hearts, and memories to those times when women and men actually dreamed of new possibilities for our nation, for our world, and for their own lives. It is now that we may be able to convey the stunning idea that dreams, imagination, vision, and hope are actually powerful mechanisms in the creation of new realities — especially when the dreams go beyond speeches and songs to become embodied; to take on flesh, in real, hard places. – Vincent Harding  (link)

And, finally,

This is a surreal cyborg affair…What does a good Anthropocene look like, does the road to that place run through an army of machines or do machines stand athwart the path, and what is the role of political ecology in charting the way there? … Clearly, we need to talk about robots.’ Read on for an excellent essay by Paul Robbins via this link.


Readers, your comments on these matters are, as always, greatly appreciated.

Bitcoins and the Next Square

*updated May 24th, 2018, below

I have been thinking about Bitcoins a lot lately. Some research later (see below) and I find an intriguing story, including a bit of drama, humour and general synchronicity of the best kind in terms of the dominant archetype energies of the times. I am not done with this yet, but I offer my first impressions…

Bitcoins hit the idea-scene in 2008 – the year that Pluto entered Capricorn* – and their sole function is the exchange of money and value via computer and smartphone exclusively involving the two parties exchanging…Attention: that’s a solid example of Uranus in Aries finding a way to say ‘screw you’ to the current traditional monetary systems.

It seems to me that the characteristics of the originator as well as the ongoing ‘in charge’ bunch, manifest some of the higher qualities of Saturn. They have experienced and worked through the typical glitches and the great rollercoaster ride of launching a new concept with passion, focus, determination and professionalism. Consequently, it hasn’t been all sticks; carrots can now be measured by the bushel. This is exactly the co-creative journey an entity working the energy well should have.

Bitcoin has one characteristic that will keep users on their toes. While just about everyone has a presence in virtual space and a personal page, when it comes to your value transactions you seek some privacy and that’s expected. But you must take personal responsibility for what you want. You must not forget to change your address after each and every transaction and depending on your activity levels, security software is available for your consideration. I think of this as typical of being a responsible proactive citizen in a democratic 21st century environment, cheesy as that might sound. But one could say that this is what the square is really all about.

I just love the following paragraph from the Bitcoin site. It is so SO in Time!

Bitcoin is an experimental new currency that is in active development. Although it becomes less experimental as usage grows, you should keep in mind that Bitcoin is a new invention that is exploring ideas that have never been attempted before. As such, its future cannot be predicted by anyone.

I cant resist just one more:

Bitcoin price is volatile. The price of a bitcoin can unpredictably increase or decrease over a short period of time due to its young economy, novel nature, and sometimes illiquid markets.

Volatile, young, and novel are all about hi-tech Uranus in Aries and illiquid markets are all about Pluto in Capricorn. I don’t have a magic ball.  I haven’t (yet) used bitcoins personally. I am just noting that the right ingredients are here. It seems to me that at least a sizeable part of the future of ‘the exchange of money and value’ will look a lot like Bitcoins.

*Pluto is the archetype easy to understand via the phoenix  myth of a body that bursts into flames, disintegrates into ash and then re-rises brand new and better. Death and Resurrection, Transformation, Purge through Fire. Pluto entered Capricorn in 2008. Capricorn rules structures in the public square, particularly government and banking.

Uranus is the archetype that brings lightening bolt speed of information, data, comprehension and typically shocks, surprises and agitates. Archetype Mercury x 1000, super-speed networking, A Way where, a moment ago, there was No Way. Uranus entered Aries in 2010. Aries is the Individual and the desires thereof.

As both of these archetypes are signified by outer cosmos placements, their effects are said to begin influencing from still quite some distance off, to permeate globally via the parametres of the themes that focus/channel them and take years to run their course within these themes.
Both of these are further described on the Homepage.

Asset or Currency?

Here is a May 2018 link to a debate between a bit coin supporter and Martin Armstrong. Is bitcoin an asset or a currency? (link)
