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)

 

Fresh Perspective: I found this take on experiencing American life after being away for a couple of years fascinating and enlightening… recommended. (youtube 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.

New Moon: 26 Aries 2

cypAriesNM2018

Accept Your New Year’s Invitation!
The annual great ‘for me’ wish-seeding time is here.
There’s a whole lot of ME-shakin’ goin’ on, that’s for sure! Collectively, hearts and minds are funneling universal vulnerability-and-recovery truths into personal circumstances. There is a quickening and vivifying atmosphere; unless blocked by natal placements (and that would have to be a rather large block!), we each sense that we’re somehow plugged into a radical game changing current… what’s been endured has grown and transformed us into next generation warriors. We can better absorb the ‘battle field’ before us and strategize accordingly. If there is anything the last ten years have taught awakening sheeple, it is the interconnectivity of individuals/groups/entities. Let’s keep that in mind as we consider and articulate a heartfelt goal.

A flash in the pan will be instantly recognised and dismissed. Every new moon is different and this year’s in Aries must contend with the restrictions and constraintsariesNM18 of our local System. If we are wise, we will channel our fire power into working with it in order to gain the trust of those co-involved or adjacent and therefore affected. Once trust is established, progressive upgrades can be implemented.
The advice in the sky tells us that this goal will need time. Yes, yes, Uranus indicates a rocket booster start is on tap for ALL of us and that is extremely exciting! But in most cases for now, this is a personal revelation, insight, energy boost, connection made. I think of it like a super fertilizer or like lush rains after a drought. In good time, an efficient pace must be set.

You can happily expect a long haul and set mini-summits for regroup and assessment at regular intervals. Know that it will take some time to adjust your unique spices to the pot and that flavours change the longer they simmer together. What you start off with now will be radically different than what you end up with later and that will be an excellent sign you were and are on the right path. (You can also expect that not everyone will like your dish and that’s ok. Best to make peace with that now.)

All considered, the ruler of the New Energy Year is in an outstanding position and blessed with an increasing flow of support from Venus in Taurus. This Venus is a magnet for beauty, for highest form/function design, for intelligent pacing. She abhors drama, wasted or short-sighted effort and false celebrity. If your personal vital Force (Mars) commits to seeking the harmonic tug of best chemistry (Venus), I expect this next goal-work on your hero’s journey to be abundantly fertile.

A Note about Here and Now: the reading above is about the ‘lay of the land’ from here to as far as the proverbial horizon. Since the parade of archetypes began their march through House Capricorn, the energy report has emphasized endurance, hard work and a repulsion to instant or cheap gratification. Yet there are many of us dealing with a Here and Now that makes it difficult to imagine a long haul with any sense of anticipation.
The square between the Capricorn stellium and the Aries stellium will greatly tax the mind/body/spirit cycle-integrations for everyone. You may be experiencing insomnia, unsettling dreamscapes, brain overload; skin rashes, outbreaks, excessive dryness; increased allergy issues; electrolyte imbalances causing muscle cramping, spasms; intestinal and bowel inflammation, irregularity; you may be seeking noticeably excessive food, excessive sex/together time; you may be quite grouchy/irritable/snappy about issues that surprise not only others but yourself. It can be a startling and upsetting time…

Some squares are exponentially worse than others! But they are also how we get a message, increase our conscious understanding and grow towards our goals. These weeks shall pass; try to think of them as the lab work of life. Experiment and adjust your theories/practice according to results.

I’m dealing with it and sometimes how I deal with it isn’t attractive or skillful. Still, I’m dealing with it in ways I wouldn’t be able to had I not done the work and come through what I’ve already come through. This is how an awakened life is … we learn as we go and sometimes shit happens. We pay attention and understand more and more and we see both the beautiful and the ugly because that is the way life is…Healing happens in every area of life and not always in even or clearly straightforward fashion. Healing has many detours most of the time. – Monaca Cassani (source)

Update: What just happened?!

Long-time readers here will appreciate seeing this update from a guest on Neptune and the Oak back in June 2014. So very happy for you, Veronica!

The Sacred Architecture of Here and Now

It’s been four years since I began this journey through the blog-o-sphere and about three since I’ve contributed anything to this space. I stopped posting in 2014 because I realized that my ego had grown too attached to the 365-Day Creativity Challenge I committed to. The challenge was a wonderful learning experience and since then I’ve grown so much as a writer, design professional, and person. Now, for some reason, it feels right to come back.

The year is ending with a bang:

  • One month ago I moved to Costa Rica.
  • Five days after moving to Costa Rica I met an integral designer on a bus who needed an architect for a climate park project with the University of Peace and in less than a week I had the job I was born for.
  • Saturn moved into Capricorn a week ago, initiating me into my first Saturn return.
  • Last Friday…
