Full Moon Baptism by Fire

Uranus into Aries
by the light of the full moon
The most powerful weapon on earth is the human soul on fire. ~ Ferdinand Foch
I hope you are well and happy. I have some urgent astrological news for you with this newsletter. The Summer of 2010 has some important astrological landmarks. For starters, on MAY 27, 2010
we have an astrological holiday (of sorts) Yes, the 'big-doings' in astrology right now center around the movement of the planet Uranus into the sign of Aries
on May 27, 2010 - the same day as the Full Moon in Sagittarius. This is a big deal. It is the beginning of a march toward more 'big doings' in August concerning the formation of a Cross in the sky. See below for more information on Jupiter into Aries. IN JULY
: Alert! Alert! Total Solar Eclipse! Total Solar Eclipse! Total Solar Eclipse! Need I say more? Well, adding a TSE
to the mix of this summer's powder-keg energies makes our times that much more ... interesting ... if you know what I mean. I will be offering more information on the eclipse in forthcoming newsletters, so stay tuned. IN AUGUST
: As if all of that weren't enough, the planet Uranus - newly minted and rip-roaring forward in the sign of Aries - is then going to form a Cross in the sky
with three other potently placed planets in the most powerful points of the zodiac (Mars and Saturn in Libra, Jupiter and Uranus in Aries, Pluto in Capricorn, North Node by wide orb in Cancer).
By August, we will have such a turbo-boosted, nearly-impossible-to-contain energy on our hands that we will wonder what happened. (One of those "WHA??" moments) The in-rush could make your head spin. (Oh and P.S. it has already started. You may know what I am talking about if you are one of those who is feeling the PRE-shocks of this energy shift)
This Cross is called the Cardinal Cross
(or the Cardinal Climax by some). Over the next few months I will offer information concerning this very important energy signature which marks a fierce opening gate to our tumultuous entry into the 21st century.
You are On Fire with the Flame of Love
And you can set us Free
|The Basics of Now
the starting gate
I Am that I Am. - God, Old Testament
On May 27, 2010 at 9:48pm EDT the planet Uranus will enter the sign of Aries. Ta-da! (Insert trumpet flourish here.)
NOTE: The Full Moon in Sagittarius
(Sun in Gemini) occurs on May 27, 2010 at 7:07pm - about 3 hours before Uranus enters Aries. Although much more could be said about this, in the interest of space, we can simply say that the characteristic Full Moon energies: illumination, fruition, culmination of seeds planted, lunacy, intensity, emotional energies running high
... all of these add a background noise to the triumphant entry of Uranus into Aries. The Full Moon reaches it's peak in the sky, ushering in a pure burst of electric
, fiery energy.
Also, Sagittarius is a Fire
sign, just as Aries is. So the Baptism by Fire is Hot on this auspicious occasion of a new 7-year cycle.
NOTE: Another addition to this change: the planet Jupiter will be joining Uranus in Aries
nine days later, which simply means that whatever happens will be BIG. Jupiter expands everything it touches - for better or worse. Breakthroughs will be huge, revolutionary, action-packed. Earthquakes on all levels predominate.
|Historic Markers of Uranus into Aries
84 years ago
A holy fire is burning in the nucleus of every cell in my body ~ keeping me alive and alove. - @oshum
Uranus changes signs every 7 years; and as it shifts signs it adds color to the prevailing zeitgeist of the time. I remember as a child, my mother (who was very superstitious) told me that if you break a mirror, you will have 7 years of bad luck. And we also know that every 7 years the physical cells of our body die and are replaced by new cells. So when Uranus changes signs, symbolically we have a chance to renew, to slough off old ways of being (literally on a cellular level), and maybe even break a spell of bad luck :)
Uranus has an 84 year cycle through the 12 zodiac signs. The last time that Uranus was in Aries was in 1927. Uranus' entry into Aries in 2010 triggers the Cardinal Climax and is even more intense than what we had in 1927. That's because we have the addition of Mars in the picture and three of the five planets are at 0 degrees cardinal signs, the most potent and powerful positions in the entire zodiac.
What was happening in 1927? The general theme of that time was the development of motorized vehicles, which created a revolutionary leap into modern times (Uranus) concerning how people MOVE (Aries). Some other examples of big changes in how we move in 1927: The Holland Tunnel under the Hudson River opened on November 13th connecting New York City with Jersey; Charles Lindbergh flew The Spirit of St. Louis across the Atlantic nonstop and solo, direct from New York City to Paris, in the first solo transatlantic flight.
NOTE: in 1843, the time previous to 1927 when Uranus was in Aries, the first major wagon train heading for the Northwest set out with one thousand pioneers from Elm Grove, Missouri on the Oregon Trail.
Throw in the futuristic nature of the 21st century (and the Aquarian Age) and you get things like "Beam me up Scotty" instead of wagon trails. See the section below entitled "It's Happening Already" for a brief discussion of the real-life announcement on May 20, 2010 of successful lateral teleportation http://bit.ly/dpBApH. One small step 10 feet over, one giant leap into new ways of moving forward.
In addition, as you well know, within 2 years (i.e. in 1929) of Uranus going into Aries we had the massive stock-market crash which ushered in the Great Depression. In our current economic climate, it does make one wonder. Indeed, we will be under severe stress this year from the most dynamic and tension-producing cycles we have seen since the Great Depression
|The Change from Pisces to Aries
With the lightning bolt of knowledge, tear open the net of error. What more is there to say? ~ Lalitavistara
Uranus has been in Pisces since 2003
. This was a very different energy from what we are now plunging into. I have written much on the 'feel' of Uranus in Pisces (go to one of my past newsletters here: http://conta.cc/9NtwBM
and scroll down the section entitled "The Highest Possible Outcome: Cultivating an Eel-ectric Underwater Experience" The way Uranus in Pisces 'felt'
was like lightning hitting water and dispersing an electrical charge into the realm of feelings, spirituality, mystical downloads and etc. Uranus' shocking energy was submerged in the ocean of Pisces. It still packed a punch of course, as water conducts electricity and the combination will surely fry you. But it is very different from the fire of electricity (Uranus) meeting the bursting fire of ignition (Aries).
Imagine lighting a fire on your grill in your back-yard - and then lightning hits it. The explosion would be massive. Think of an earthquake. When an earthquake happens, fires break out. Motion can be crushed. Emergency action is required.
With Uranus in Pisces since 2003, your brain and electro-physical-neuro systems probably got fried (think back on the past 7 years...) The ultimate goal of Uranus in Pisces was to 'fry' our emotional circuits and spiritual practices to the point of overload so that we could be re-wired. Indeed, we have taken on profound new levels of spiritual capacity in that time. We literally learned to hold a charge, like an eel in the ocean of consciousness. Coincident with that, however, we also might have felt like our desire to make changes in our lives was watered down, fizzled.
Well those days are over. First of all Uranus in Aries doesn't reserve itself to only the emotional circuits. This kind of energy could cause you to, well, burst into flames. It's a total body experience, as it were. The alchemy is more violent, instant and severe. The results are shocking and happen so quickly you are bewildered. Spontaneous Combustion.
This is quite a powerful spiritual reality. Our personal (and collective!) dross can now be burned off in a heartbeat, with the form changing radically. If we have dross we have been trying to clear and which even metaphorical electrocution (Uranus in Pisces) didn't not burn off, well it will go bye-bye now. And you won't see it coming.
Do you recognize the photo just above? This is a picture of the horrifying Icelandic volcano eruption earlier this year. It holds the energy of the current energy shift. (Photo Copyright Marco Fulle, Stromboli Online)
Here's the good news: The impetus to change will have substantial fuel behind it. Here's the bad news: The impetus to change will have substantial fuel behind it. In other words, not only can we make huge strides in our goals and in blazing a trail, we also will be prone to make rash decisions. This is the pitfall. How do we handle the primordial fire? Will it burn us? Or can we harness it? If it burns us to ashes, what will we do with them? Life continues. Form never dies, it only transforms.
Over the next 7 years we will learn to play with incorrigible fire. Holding a charge was a pre-requisite for this new lesson. We will get burned and then we will carry more light, heat, and juice which will blaze a path of change into the future.
Uranus in Aries has such amazing potential for brain-storms! You will be knocked off your socks, baby! We will have the ability download incredible breakthrough information and inspiration while in a cauldron of purification fire. But what's new here is that we will also have the ability to TAKE ACTION on it. No more out to sea.
The Horrific Oil Spill still spewing off the Gulf Coast could be related to the last movements of Uranus in Pisces. As Uranus has been plowing through the last degree of the sign of the ocean (Pisces), the sea blew a gasket (Uranus). You better believe this will create change (Uranus now moving into Aries). As a last hurrah, Uranus helped Neptune (Pisces' go-to guy) to release the Kracken - catalyzing a focus for the new Aries expression.
Pictures of the Oil Spill

of the gushing oil as it emerges deep in the ocean. It has been hemorrhaging for a month and will continue for many more months.
Aries carries a profound level of urgency
and pent-up energy hell-bent on release. Let's apply this sense of urgency in a life-saving way. It's an ee-mer-urgency. Be a hero, please come to our rescue: A MESSAGE OF GREAT URGENCY
from Chief Arvol Looking Horse of the Lakota Tribe, 19th generation Keeper of the Sacred White Buffalo Calf Pipe: "We ask for prayers that the oil spill, this bleeding, will stop.
Pray for the people to be guided in repairing this mistake, and... that we may also seek to live in harmony, as we make the choice to change the destructive path we are on." (released May 12, 2010) http://bit.ly/aJkzeu
|What Does Uranus in Aries FEEL like?
baptism by fire
The world will be at peace when each of us learns to swallow our own fire. http://sn.im/tsgk4
Aries holds the vibe of
: War, Pioneering energy, Blind Action, look-before-you-leap, the Mother Bear who kills for her cubs, activists who defend those who cannot defend themselves - sometimes doing so violently, Fierceness, the Blue-painted Celtic warriors in the Mel Gibson movie 'Braveheart', the Scalping done by Native American warriors, the goddesses Sekhmet and Boudaccia, Impulsivenss, sports, gladiators, cardio-vascular health, competition Uranus holds the vibe of
: Revolution, Shocking, Sudden, Breakthrough, keen awareness, progressive, innovative, unique, radical change, Traumatic, Artificial Intelligence, technology, extra-terrestrial energies (anything 'not of this earth'), rebelliousness, anarchy, the upper chakras (27 chakras above the head), alternate realities, parallel universes, time travel, traveling to other dimensions, string theory but WAY beyond - i.e. any kind of leading-edge unknown science or technology which bursts on the scene and changes the game forever, ideas which are vehemently opposed.
Uranus can be brilliant; AND Uranus can be stark-raving crazy. No matter, Uranus is never, ever unseen, unheard, taken-for-granted or ignored. You WILL know it is there. If someone burns down a building - hard to ignore. If someone says: "the world is NOT flat" you will listen. If someone sets the slaves free (Lincoln, an Aquarius) you will take note. You probably won't like the change Uranus brings (because it turns your familiar world upside down) but it's job is to push Humanity forward in progressive leaps of evolution.
Uranus says: The revolution will not be televised. I will sneak up on you. I will flatten your well-crafted corrupt hierarchies which enslave people. I am a unique individual and I will proclaim and live my manifesto until everything is changed. I won't waste time. It will happen while you are sleeping. Wake Up! Democracy NOW! I am ready, willing and able to fight for change.
You WILL know Aries is there as well
. The two-year old of the zodiac, Aries WILL have its way. Aries says (sometimes throwing a tantrum) "What's in it for me?? NO! I want, I want! This is what I Want! I will climb the mountain because it is there! Get out of my way! I will compete and I will WIN." Aries seizes life, alive and screaming I AM, I AM! I AM! I Am That I Am. A sheer declaration of existence.
Aries takes a bite out of life. Think of that scene in the movie "Avatar" where the lead character finds himself alighting in his new avatar (his new physical vehicle) and jumps up off the table, running and leaping and feeling the energy of having a body and BEING ALIVE. Aries lives! Reckless like the Ram (its symbol) it sure is. But this lifeforce energy is necessary for anything to exist. The Big Bang comes before the chicken or the egg. Pisces has no self. Aries is pure self, unabashed, vivivied, on fire with the sheer force of existence. We are not merging in with the Godhead here (that's a Pisces thing). Instead we are the pure expression of the Godhead on the cutting-edge of existence.
Aries says: " I will defend my territory to the death, till I see the whites of your eyeballs. Go ahead, make my day, pity the fool." Injustices MUST be righted.
The oil spill at the end of Uranus in Pisces now positions us to take swift and terrible action of reform to prevent the helpless from being violated in this way ever again. The anger (Aries) is palpable. The cries for change (Uranus) are ubiquitous and huge (Jupiter).
Uranus and Aries look at each other and say: It's time for the Revolutionary (Uranus) War (Aries) Stand back.
|It's Happening Already
synthetic(uranus) life(aries) declares: beam me up!
Everything we ever imagined, thought or felt is available now. This is chaos.- Christine Page
Already the markings of the Uranus in Aries shift are appearing in sudden ways in the form of MASSIVE revolutionary New Beginnings and Breakthroughs in Technology. For instance, did you see these coming? :
5-20-10 Birth of the first synthetic cell
. People, this is HUGE. Aries is the first strident potent arcing energy of the seed being born, pushing up through the cold soil to reveal budding new life where there was none before. With Uranus' off-planet, technological, artificial-intelligence energies, this new seed is synthetic!
This seed will lead to full-blown Artificial Intelligence when Pluto enters Aquarius in 2024 (if not before) and as the radical energies continue to unfold into the 21st century. Mind-blowing strides toward this end will occur over the next 7 years. Don't blink or you'll miss it.
5-20-10 Quantum Teleportation Achieved Across 10 Miles http://bit.ly/dpBApH
. Ok, here's another one of those like wow moments. Beam me up Scotty! Technology (Aquarius) will transform how we move (Aries) and our actions (Aries) will become instantaneous - a shocking and radical realization of science fiction (Aquarius). Live Long and Prosper indeed.
Btw, these breakthroughs were announced on the same day! Bam! These are the kinds of breakthroughs we can expect now. This is a very sacred time of amazing new (Star-Trek-like) discoveries.
a spark ignites a flame
Choosing to let this powerful energy to pass without taking advantage of it is a waste of the loaded potential it offers. - Jan, Astogrrl http://ht.ly/1Fbnm
The manifestation of Uranus in Aries (like every other external influence) takes shape in our lives depending on how we give it form through our awareness and intent. The way it will manifest is affected by
our spiritual strength/ability to contain it, and our development of higher-consciousness levels, as well as our discipline in expressing pure feelings and thoughts. If we are aligned in these ways, what shows up in our lives (and in the collective) will be sublime rather than profane.
"The powerful cardinal force bestowed upon us now is best handled if we know what we want and we are dedicated to seeing it through. Otherwise, the sheer force of these planetary alignments might cause us to buckle
, make decisions out of haste/fear, or choose inaction/avoidance. It would be a shame to miss out on what we could have if only we were strong enough, brave enough and prepared enough." - Jan, Astogrrl http://ht.ly/1Fbnm
"We must attempt to make use of this cardinal force. Ask yourself: What do you dream of? Are you committed to the task at hand despite where the journey might lead you on the way to your destination? How, then, can you begin to make your dream a reality?" - Jan, Astogrrl http://ht.ly/1Fbnm
ON ANOTHER LEVEL: HEAD'S UP: People around you (as well as YOU) may be impulsive, erratic, quick-to-anger. This is not a slow-boil anger, but bursts of violent expression. Changes could be sudden - lightning-bolt, split-second flash-reversals. A flash-mob.
Rubber hits road. All the years of learning/using spiritual practices - such as meditation, prayer, breathing, yoga, grounding - must be implemented now if we are to maintain our equilibrium. This goes without saying, really, and not only applies to this summer. It's only going to heat up further from here. Spiritual practice is necessary for survival.
Focusing on NOW, please note that we are this summer we are entering the 2012-crucible of change that the Mayans and so many others predicted. This portal extends from 2010 through 2013.
Remember that this change is not assigned to one specific date (12-21-12) but is a several-year portal. Think back to the Y2K frenzy. Everyone thought that January 1, 1999 would be the moment in time of a kind of apocalyptic change. Instead it was spaced out over a portal from 1999 - 2001 - with the actual 'event' occurring on September 11, 2001. This is not a sprint, preparing for one day of Olympic competition; it is a marathon, preparing for the long-haul and the potential for obstacles anywhere along the path.
A vital and basic ingredient to help us seize these energies in constructive (not destructive) ways to serve humanity is to constantly, constantly continue to raise our consciousness to higher and higher levels. Higher levels of consciousness in even a small group of people will help mitigate any potential calamities. Higher levels of consciousness can be gained through meditation, prayer, yoga, drumming, chanting, alternative health modalities for healing and release. In other words, through a conscious spiritual path.
But truly, even if you don't meditate or have a daily spiritual practice (which you BETTER, you BETTER) the simple, day-to-day emanation of love, compassion and kindness is the elixir of transmutation for all that threatens to destroy us. Practice compassion. Practice compassion. If you do nothing else, practice compassion.
Humanity is on a learning curve concerning compassion - it is not the current default setting for us. Keep going back to the drawing board with it, day after day after day, moment after moment after moment. Even if you have a slip -- in the next moment come back to compassion -- for others AND for your yourself.
Cardio exercise will also help now. Energy must be discharged in healthy ways. Get a punching bag if you must. I have experienced this energy over the past week or so, and it is formidable. It literally blew me back. I was not prepared. I was blind-sighted. You have to think and act quickly in the moment with compassion and restraint. It's not easy to do. Prepare, practice, love. Prepare, practice, love.
|What People (i.e. Astrologers)are Saying
one thing we all agree on... it's important
We have not seen anything like this in a long, long time. - Curtis Burns
Like anything else in life, everyone responds differently to any event. In this case, astrologers span the gamut on how they see the celestial events of this summer:
: (Looking at the chart for the Cardinal Cross in August 2010) makes the hair on the back of my neck stand up. I looked at records going back to the 1800's, and this is the most difficult alignment I found. When I was at a conference in Boston last month, someone said this was the most difficult alignment they have seen in the last "1,000 years." Another person told me this is the worst alignment in "10,000 years." Earl Nash http://bit.ly/9pKLEm
: Without alluding to any potential disasters directly (Jessica Murray) politely reminds us that "there are no atheists in foxholes." In essence, get your stuff straightened out. - Robert Phoenix
Of course, the truth lies somewhere in-between. How will you use the energies of the Summer of 2010?

Here's to the crazy ones. The misfits. The rebels. The troublemakers. The round pegs in the square holes. The ones who see things differently. They're not fond of rules, and they have no respect for the status quo. You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify and vilify them. About the only thing you can't do is ignore them because they change things. They push the human race forward. And while some may see them as crazy, we see genius. Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do. VIDEO: http://bit.ly/zzcH0
