"The Primacy of Being"
This special encore presentation was chosen from all of this year's shows to guide us into the New Year of 2014 through its profound truths. Neil Kramer returns to the show to discuss his latest insights around being and knowledge. All too often we are fixated upon gaining as much knowledge as possible. Neil sees this approach as a good way to start the journey, but at some point it becomes a hindrance and a saturation with information that prevents us from seeing the real truth which requires us to just be. Positioning ourselves on knowledge doesn't ultimately work. Productivity and success is also seen to be a trap that we fall into as a result of expectations the western world has of us. We will discuss Divine Will and what that actually is, personal sovereignty and the balance that we need to strike between our animal, soul and divine nature. We will also discuss beauty as a marker for truth and being in synergy with our natural surroundings. www.neilkramer.com
"Your Powerful Journey to Freedom"
Your soul is guiding you to remember what you have forgotten. Your heart's compass is leading you back to your true Self-a deeply loved spiritual being who has chosen to be immersed in a human experience. Awakening to this realization is the first step on your path to freedom. Discovering your true Self is the key to your liberation from the pain, stress and anxiety of trying to fit all that you are into a 3-D container. Joan and John will discuss your powerful journey to freedom. Their goal is to help you know the beauty that is you in its fullest expression. As you embark on this joyful exploration of your true nature, you will discover that you not only have direct communication with your Source, but also that you are never alone because you are and always have been one with Source.
"Freeing Our Goddance"
Join our show with Judy Guadalupe discussing the inherent gift to all beings and our planet in "Freeing Our Goddance." In the story of humanity's evolution, we have had many turning points where certain people were considered insane for their introductions of new ideas, paradigms and potentials. Woo-Hoo, we get to be the crazy ones now! Your inner yearnings to grow, find peace, live freely, express creatively and to serve more fully upon our planet are your soul's gift to our transforming world. We raise our frequency accessing yet unseen options serving as mirrors, reminders of our mystic soul's gifts and potentials. We are midwifing each other's fullness. The Goddance is each individual's unique expression or "flavor of the One." Freeing your Goddance is surrendering limitation and fear as the truth of your limitless nature of love emerges. We will hear some of Judy's poems, light language and inspiration regarding these unprecedented times of mass awakening.
Join Peter and Cate Montana on an amazing journey into the heart of the Amazon jungle, up staggering peaks in the Andes, and halfway across the globe to the consecration of a temple to the Great Goddess in southern India as she searches for the missing Feminine within herself and Western Culture. Raised in a man's world to be "just one of the guys," Cate was a highly successful network TV editor and journalist, self-admittedly "brash, driven and highly competitive." While on assignment a chance encounter with a shaman sets her on the path of unearthing the illusive power of the feminine. In a raw and wrenching recapitulation of her life Cate discovers the devastating absence of feminine qualities within herself and the withering personal and global consequences of having only one paradigm available for her to express through: the masculine "P" values of Power, Possessions, Profit, and Progress. An intelligent, compellingly honest and frequently funny memoir of a modern woman's search for her own unrecognized feminine spirit, Unearthing Venus is both a visionary and everywoman story that brilliantly captures what it is to be a woman today and every day.
"This handy little book is packed as tight as a pill-bottle with crystal remedies for ailments."
Judy Hall will discuss her latest book, Crystal Prescriptions, which is a symptom-based A-Z directory which will help you to identify exactly the right crystal for your needs, whether for healing of the mind, body, psyche or spirit, and will point you to useful stones for improving vitality and well-being, and for balancing the chakras. Listing over 1,200 symptoms, it is a practical first-aid guide based on sound crystal healing principles that have been practised for millennia. Judy has been a past life therapist and karmic astrologer for over 40 years. An internationally known author, psychic, healer, broadcaster and workshop leader, her books have been translated into fifteen languages. She recently appeared in the Watkins Review of the one hundred most spiritually influential authors. A trained healer and counsellor, Judy has been psychic all her life and has a wide experience of many systems of divination and natural healing methods.

Saturn rules over Capricorn and its rings have been interpreted as representing bonds and restrictions. Saturn is seen as the planet that creates obstacles in people's lives with the ultimate intention of helping the person to overcome these obstacles and become resilient. Positive qualities include being practical, cautious, constructive, responsible, patient, ambitious, thrifty, reliable and trustworthy with good stamina and endurance. Saturn people can be seen as selfish, despondent, depressed, aloof, cold and living a life of sorrow. Saturn is associated with the skin, teeth, bones, gall bladder and a tendency to form arthritic crystallizations in the bones and joints.
Galena is an ore of Lead Oxide and Lead is associated with the planet Saturn which rules Capricorn. Galena is connected to the root chakra and is a stone of transformation. It is effective when embarking on a personal spiritual journey, as it acts as a powerful mirror, reflecting light into the deepest, darkest regions of one's shadow self. It encourages temperance, tolerance and peace as one learns to embrace the aspects of oneself one has long feared. Galena is sometimes used in past life regression therapy as a guide to inner vision as it assists in facing and overcoming one's deepest fears. Galena is an Earth stone and as such has strong grounding properties; it brings strength, courage and the ability to face difficult times, helps one to recover personal power and assists in countering the ill effects of radiation, electromagnetic pollution, and long hours in front of the computer. Galena is used by healers to counter infection, protect against radiation, and assist in the recovery from addictions.

Welcome to inSIGHTS with Peter Tongue
I plan to give you updates on what is happening in the World of Spirit each month as well as brief introductions into articles that I have found useful with references to the full article for those who would like to pursue that topic further.
by Peter Tongue
One year ago there was great excitement and anticipation as we entered the New Year of 2013, following all of the hype around December 21st, 2012, and I don't think it has panned out quite as people expected. The Golden Era of Peace that everyone was hoping for has at times felt like a pipe dream as most of us have gone through some enormous challenges and changes in our lives, having the rug pulled from under our feet.
So let me reassure you that everything is unfolding exactly as it is supposed to and also let me remind you that this year was the Year of the Water Snake and what that meant for us. This energy provided the opportunity for us to shed all of the old skins that were not serving our movement forward into the higher frequencies of light. Faced with the dilemma of breaking old partnerships, out-dated friendships, stagnating jobs and careers, many wanted to hold onto the illusion of security that these disabling aspects of our lives apparently brought. Some of these old skins were firmly attached. This caused tremendous internal conflict and for those hanging on to the old dreams, the challenges got worse and worse. We were simply being shown by the Universe that this is the time to step into our truth, our full integrity and live a lie no more.
It requires us to let go of all of the old limiting beliefs that keep us trapped in our old way of being. Shedding ALL of those old skins is the only way to go, leaving us naked and vulnerable. We cannot build the new us until we completely let go of the old structure. Then we can walk our truth path at all times and turn to the oneness that connects us all together. Living our true purpose, with true people in true places. Life on Earth is being re-configured-it is a turning of the tide toward a better humanity. The only thing stopping us being part of this great new adventure is hanging on to perceived security which simply makes us miserable. No barrier can block the creative dream of your soul once you surrender.
Love the HELL out of yourself and rise up from the chaos of a dying world. The toxic venom of the snake contains its own cure and so all of the struggles of this year will have been worth it if we simply let go and trust. When we do and we spend time out in nature, in peace and tranquility, wonderful things start to happen and many missing pieces of the Cosmic Jig Saw Puzzle click into place.
In a recent you tube Galactic Message, Matt Kahn gave an actual date for the first wave of Ascension which was September 27th, 2015. In that message he passionately explained that we are in the final preparation stages for that shift into higher frequencies of light. We need to have cleared out as much of our dross as possible by then and everything that is taking place now is our soul's calling to be ready. It may seem a long way off, but it will be here in the blink of an eye. So get ready, prepare yourself and have loads of fun along the way! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1aBx0aBsZkc
I wish you all a magnificent 2014!
Star Temple Victoria - Last Round!
We wanted to let you all know that this will be the last round of the Victoria Temple of the Stars' monthly Alchemical Journeys. As we reach the end of the third cycle, we feel that this process is coming to a natural completion. And what a journey it has been!
We thank all of you who have walked with us, shared your beautiful presence, your stories, poetry, insights, visions, and creativity on these journeys. We are indebted to Mary Dowds for following her intuition, for discerning the zodiac disc in the Victoria landscape, and for all of the foundational work she had done, making all of this possible. We are grateful to Ted Spiers who had an uncanny knack for finding the most hidden, magical power spots within the effigies that Mary had discovered. And we have been blessed to have Melanie Lichtinger as our astrological consultant, sharing her wealth of knowledge and insights over the past three years.
We began on April 17th, 2011, in Aries, the birthday of Katharine Maltwood, the visionary and historical inspiration behind the Star Temple. It felt as though the first year was about us getting acquainted with the landscape structures, the myths, legends, and history of the different regions, and as we began to acknowledge the amazing synchronicities that took place, many more began to follow.
The second round felt as though it was much more to do with our own personal journeys of transformation - travelling through the twelve sun signs as the archetypes of our own unique humanness, both the positive light qualities and the more challenging shadow side of each sign, coming into wholeness by embracing each and every one. It was also about the alchemical process as we worked with the planetary metals of each of the signs' ruling planets.
And this year's journey has been more about opening our hearts and coming into perfect alignment with Mother Earth herself. With Zia guiding us in sacred ceremony every single time we have gathered over the past three years, it really feels as if we have come into a much deeper, sacred connection with our sweet Earth. On our walks, a beautiful interchange has been happening between us and the birds, animals, trees, elementals, and the landscape itself through vistas, visions, cloud formations and the play of light coming through in photographs. It feels as if a deep, permeating peace and joyfulness has settled into the landscape, just as it has settled into our own beings, as we walk.
We will meet for the final three signs in Capricorn on January 5th, Aquarius on February 2nd, and Pisces on March 2nd, bringing everything to completion at a final gathering around the Spring Equinox at the hub at a date yet to be decided. (Somewhere between Thursday March 20th-Sunday March 23rd).
We are absolutely dedicated to the sacred landscape of Victoria and will continue to co-create with it, and with the wonderful community that has grown with us, in different ways in the future. (And we truly encourage you to do your own explorations, meditations - whatever you are inspired to do - within the landscape as well - and see what you come up with!) There will be more walks and gatherings during key alignment times at sacred sites in the area. We are also feeling called to expand beyond our local landscape to connect with other magical places on Vancouver Island and in the world.
We wanted to let you know early so that those who wish to complete the journey with us can make the necessary plans. We are looking forward to a fantastic New Year and many new adventures!

Firing the Arrow into Your Heart's Desire!
We gathered together for our Sagittarius workshop at the Chinese Cemetery at Harling Point in the rump of our centaur in the landscape. This place has a powerful vortex energy associated with two ancient geological plates that crashed into each other here aeons ago, displaying totally different rock formations below us, in the swirling crashing pure white waves of the ocean on this wild and blustery morning. We open space huddled in a grove of trees protecting us from the elements. We then spend some time at Harpoon Rock, one of the First Nation legends, associated with the Transformer God, Hayls, who turned a local seal hunter into rock for harpooning seals from a forbidden location. This erratic stone in the landscape is in fact a sighting rock for the seals as they travel on their pilgrimage just as we are on this day. Two of our group lead us to a beach where they have experienced a number of special experiences, often with birds and animals including bald eagles, raven and mink, interestingly enough the latter two animal totems associated with Hayls. They had also photographed a magnificent vortex cloud swirling above to offer confirmation of the sacredness of this spot.
We then moved on to Gonzales Regional Park, overlooking the Straits of Juan de Fuca looking towards the Olympic Mountains of Washington State. In these wild and windy conditions, a short stay was called for but nevertheless some breathtaking views greeted us from high on the look- out.
The vehicles we traveled in during the day were representations of the power of the horse (Horsepower!) Each time we got out of our cars on the pilgrimage, it was the same as dismounting our horse. This is King Arthur's Grail quest.
We returned to a private home on Gonzales Bay for our shared pot luck lunch and free flowing discussion around the energies of the day. One of the important concepts to grasp in the Sagittarius energy is as follows. When we fire our arrow into our transformed and ascended future-self from where we are today, living our lives, with all of the trials and tribulations, the space between these two extremes seems too big to cross. It is a chasm of such magnitude that the danger is that we will not believe that we are able to cross from one to the other. The key is to believe that we can, and to bridge this void it is critical to do the following. When you are feeling depressed, anxious or overwhelmed in your mundane day to day lives, simply let those sensations go and shift into the feelings that you will have when you are in your ideal future ascended self. What will it feel like when you are following your true purpose and passion in life? Feel this energy vividly, enthusiastically, as though it is already achieved. This is the key to your success!
In the landscape feature, Sagittarius is represented by the centaur, half man-half horse. In this case it is King Arthur riding his white horse. After our potluck lunch, we headed along the ley line which runs along the body of the horse in the centaur to the spot where King Arthur dismounts which is in Carnavon Park. Amazingly it used to be a horse-race track! Here we visit the baseball diamond where the pitching mound looks remarkably like the eye of Horus from an aerial view!
From here we move on to Dean Park where there is a beautiful avenue of trees alongside Bowker Creek which flows out into the ocean through our Capricorn effigy on Willows Beach. No doubt there is an intersecting point of two ley lines here, where Zia appears in her Sagittarius mask, bow and arrow raised to the heavens half-hidden behind one of these magnificent trees.
Now we venture up the body of King Arthur in the centaur of Sagittarius to Mount Stevens Park, which is the pineal gland inside Arthur's helmet. A very important shift in awareness was required here. In our modern western world, we have allowed our minds to take over control of our lives and our intuitive side has been largely disregarded. Now it is time to reverse the roles. We need to allow our hearts and our bodies to intuitively guide us in our chosen direction informing the mind of what is required, so it will act on our behalf. It is an inversion of priority, from the INSIDE OUT! So in traveling this journey we set the intention to use our bodies to inform our minds!
Our Sagittarius gem stone is turquoise and so we settle into a sacred ceremonial burial of the crystal in Mount Stevens Park.
As Sagittarius is the last of the fire signs, it seemed really appropriate to conclude the day with a fire ceremony led by Zia. We gathered at a private home at the end of the day for our fire ceremony.
In a sacred fire ceremony, we take two sticks to represent our death arrow and our life arrow. We put into the death arrow, everything that we are complete with-all blockages, dysfunction, discontents, unhealed aspects of ourselves-the dross and debris. We blow all of this into the arrow and then watch it all burn away. Then we take the life arrow and blow into it all of our wishes and intentions for our lives from this moment forward, and place it in the flames, so that these vibrations can flow out into the ethers through the element of fire. It is a very powerful process and commitment that we make to ourselves. On this occasion we also included the collective release of old patterns and structures which no longer resonate and welcomed in the New Energies about to be unleashed in the World.
Hot Chocolate and Pizza to celebrate brought to conclusion another fantastic day out in our landscape.
We now move through the lesser gate of Sagittarius through the energy of the 2013 Winter Solstice and climb the mountain into Capricorn for our workshop on Sunday January 5th, 2014.
Orion with his belt in the middle is very prominent in the January night sky, about half way up the south-eastern sky. The brightest stars are not in the belt, but are Rigel in the westward foot of Orion and fire-orange Betelgeuse in his eastern shoulder. Orion serves as a signpost to other notable stars and constellations of its season. Extend the line of the Belt to the upper right. The ﬁrst bright star your gaze comes to is Aldebaran, an orange, 1st- magnitude gem. Notice that Aldebaran seems to be part of a small, V-shaped pattern of dimmer stars: the leading lights of the sprawling Hyades cluster. (The Moon is in their midst on January 11th ). Aldebaran and the Hyades combine in the sky to form the face of Taurus, the Bull, with Aldebaran as his bright eye. Continue the line onward, and you reach the smaller but brighter Pleiades star cluster (M45). Next, extend the line of the Belt downward. In that direction it points toward a brighter scintillating radiance: Sirius, the brightest star in the heavens after the Sun. Sirius is still low in the southeast in January.
As for the planets this month, Venus, when January begins, is still just above the west-southwest horizon after sunset - right where Mercury will appear at month's end. Venus soon drops out of sight. Then in the last week of January, look for Venus emerging in the bright dawn very low in the east-southeast. Mars, in Virgo, rises in the east around midnight at the beginning of January and 11 p.m. by month's end. As it climbs higher through the morning hours, look for Spica sparkling below it. They're high toward the south by dawn. Mars is about as bright as Spica at the start of January but grows obviously brighter by month's end. Jupiter, glaring brightly in central Gemini, dominates the eastern sky in the evening and the high south late in the January night. Saturn, in Libra, glows in the southeast before dawn, far to the lower left of Mars and Spica.
Book ReviewAvenues of the Human Spirit
by Graham Nicholls
Avenues of the Human Spirit takes us on a compelling journey through many life-changing experiences towards a greater sense of spiritual fulfillment. Genuine life changing experiences such as perceptions through time, out-of-body experiences and a profound spiritual awakening illustrate how the author reached a philosophy of benevolence and freedom that we too can draw upon in our everyday lives. These Avenues of the Human Spirit are the ecstatic changes we can experience beyond our bodies, in deep meditation or removed from the everyday world in nature, but they are also the everyday choices we make that define our world. The author's spiritual awareness has also grown from an understanding of the spectrum of human experience, from the harsher sides of his childhood in working class London to the joys of spiritual exploration. The result of these combined perceptions is what makes Avenues of the Human Spirit a unique and life-affirming book.
Capricorn is the 10th sign of the zodiac and is one of the more universal signs followed by Aquarius and Pisces. It is a cardinal Earth sign ruled by Saturn. Generally speaking, Capricorn people are ambitious, slowly but surely making their way to the top of their chosen profession. They will come across many obstacles in their path, but they will typically overcome them through determination, discipline and perseverance. Capricorns tend to be somewhat aloof, but do have a dry, dour sense of humor which can be quite funny. Capricorns are typically well-informed with a good depth of knowledge, but do have difficulty admitting when they are wrong. They have a sense of fatalism and see trials, difficulties and suffering as a part of life. In fact they are most suspicious when things are going too well. They are accepting of their role in life and lack the flexibility needed to make necessary changes. Capricorn offers security through structural support which can lead to a hardening or crystallization of thoughts and ideas-a certain rigidity.
Monthly Animal Totem
The goat is the animal totem for Capricorn and teaches climbing ability and agility along with independence and surefootedness. He shows the importance of supporting others as you move and being flexible in exploring new possibilities. Goat aids to establish foundations in which to stand and will guide in building a stronger foundation if need be. He wants to make sure what is before us is strong before the next lessons begin. Goat prepares for moves in life and teaches how to seek new heights in spiritual, mental and emotional areas so one can achieve the best future by looking up and forward. Do you feel stuck and lost? Goat will show direction in which to move. Is it time to finally put forth your independence and strength? Look within to find the answers and allow Goat to lead you where you need to be. Trust the sure foot of Goat's wisdom.
