The Official Newsletter of Wisdom Path, by Judi Thomases
Astrology & Channeled Guidance in Every Issue April 2013 Volume 64
A PERSONAL NOTE
The past month has been a pretty amazing concoction of experience. You could say it was light and dark, or maybe just immensely and creatively empowering at the same time it was frustratingly aggravating! I wonder if others experienced the recent energies in this way?
For instance, as part of the Mercury retrograde but along with a whole bunch of other difficult aspects, I basically was computer-disabled for a month... which is one reason there was no newsletter from me last month. This led to frustration, and a scramble to repair or replace what had gotten fried. But it also led to a lot of internal work in which I had to keep aligning my inner pace with that of the universe's (in other words, when urgency arose and impatience gnawed at my mind, I had to do all the calming exercises that are part of the conscious realignment with the Now). This wasn't easy. Plus, I was working on my husband's laptop as a substitute, and we spent part of the time traveling during which I was working on a hotel's computer.
On the bright side, some very wonderful and empowering activities were manifesting. For example, I was able to get the CEO of the state's Shoprite supermarket chain to travel down in person for a meeting with the residents, the upshot of which was disappointing but nevertheless powerful. Also, our vacation was a bright spot during an otherwise difficult month, and I highly recommend Punta Cana in the Dominican Republic as a 4- and 5-star destination with good weather and very friendly staff. Never mind that I got a million bug bites, and a stomach flu - not at the hotel, but during an excursion - just compounding other pieces of the month's aggravation! Several wonderful meetings with holistic and metaphysical friends also took place during this time frame - heartwarming, supportive, psychically magical and fascinating. These were the joyful bright spots.
Life, as was thrown up to my eyes with such clarity, is what you make of the available energy. If you tell yourself it's all stressful, frustrating and aggravating, your mind will dwell in darkness and your body will reflect that. But if you go through the same set of circumstances - aggravating, miserable, and difficult as they are - but you keep your mind right, enjoying each moment of pleasure, each opportunity to be love, to send out love, to receive love, your mind will dwell in light. I think this is the answer to everything. I think last month was a test. I think I'm learning how to pass these tests.
It's a new day. Mercury is going direct. The hard aspects are in some part, over. And my computer is back up and running. What could be better? Life is grand.
Signing off for now,
With blessings and always, with Smiles,
Judi from Del-Aware

Book Review: "Higgs: The Invention & Discovery of the 'God Particle'", by Jim Baggott (Oxford)
I'm fascinated with the course of physics in our era because it seems to be on the verge of giving us a mathematical and observable explanation of one of the great mysteries of life, i.e., how something is formed out of nothing, how matter comes into being or gets translated from energy into form (the specifics of Einstein's great formula - E = MC squared - which contains both energy and matter in either side of the equation).
Because it's been known for some time that energy can be described as a function of matter, and matter can be described as a function of energy, scientists are figuring out exactly where that takes place, and how to understand it. So, Math and Physics are on a quest, and that quest is to explain the nature of life. Other people - our artists, poets, mystics, idealists - are on their own quest, all valuable, all to reflect meanings of life to various types of human beings. But science's quest is cerebral, removed from emotions, and devoted to logical deductions.
With that said, I've been reading lots of books that speak of this new journey of brilliant discovery. Even when I can't understand the advanced formulas or big chunks of the theory, I manage to follow the thread of the quest, its landmarks, its plateaus, its peaks. The Higgs book is particularly enjoyable for a lay person because not only is the quest described thoroughly with great scientific detail, but the human story is added. We learn that a bunch of top brains were sitting around the diningroom of a hotel chain, discussing some breakthrough concepts. Einstein was invited but he couldn't make it that day. But Fermi and Oppenheimer and many other brilliant minds were kicking it around. We learn that before the Hubble telescope, cosmic particles had to be found on mountaintops, and when the scientists' truck broke down, a fortunate sychronicity occurred when the vice-president of General Motors happened by and towed their truck at his expense and gave them a new one. We learn about when one scientist was on a long car trip, and had the brainstorm of the solution to his problem during it (maybe it was on the Turnpike), and we learn about a Chinese physicist who came to America and was so impressed by Benjamin Franklin that he chose a middle name of Franklin, so everyone called him Frank.
So many interesting details like this allow me to skip the passages regarding up-and-down spin, negative or positive charge, strangeness, symmetry, and many other concepts that my astrological brain simply will never grasp. But it also allows me to coast through difficult passages so that I can thoroughly enjoy, say, a discovery that a certain symmetry group produced a Star of David pattern, or that a final discovery of spin patterns was named tongue-in-cheek as the Eightfold Way (because there are eight sets), and even that the pattern on the page looks exactly like the Kabbalistic Tree of Life to me.
What I'm searching for in reading this stuff is insight, not only insight into the meaning of the discoveries and the outcome of the experiments in which the miniscule occurrence is found where massless particles hit resistance from a field that acts like molasses, and slows them down sufficiently so that they begin to take on characteristics of the 3-dimensional world, but I'm also fascinated to intuitively follow these unique brains into the place that humanity is just entering, and seeing a snapshot of the vistas that are opening up to us by this newest and most advanced comprehension of the mysteries of life and the laws of existence. The scientists' exhilaration in theorizing and then actually discovering the infinitesimal point at which a field of energy called the Higgs Field (also known through the ages and contemporaneously as the Akasha, Ain Soph, the Quantum Field, the Source Field, the Zero Point Field, the Implicate Order, and as I call it in my new book, the M Field) interacts with particles of energy to take on the properties of form is incredibly exciting, and has immense portent for the future development of humanity. In the Age of Aquarius, mankind is to realize itself as godlike.
I can't recommend Higgs to the average reader because it's too technical and in its own very narrow niche, but I can recommend to the extent that you might have curiosity, or be so inclined, to read as much as possible in magazines or even tv documentaries to begin to familiarize yourself with these strides because this is going to be the basis for a very new world, and we're just on the cusp.

LOGIC DIGS AT THE DEEPEST MYSTERIES
Man's mind is now groping for logical solutions to life's mysteries. It has taken a long time to reach this place. This (shall we say) level of inquiry into existence, has taken much work in the development of the brain to travel past mere survival, and to develop a more poetic or inspirational aspect of life's experiences, to look at the beauty of nature, to feel the presence of a higher hand in its development and in its grandeur.
Having achieved that much, the arts flourished and so did religion. And then finally, in more recent times, man turned his well-developed brain's attention to the understanding of the deeper aspects of the psyche, and at the same time, as a group, as a race, began to perceive the mysterious part of life, perhaps even deeper than the psyche, which would be the paranormal mysteries.
It is now, when there is pressure from the economy worldwide, from aggressive nuclear threat, and from nature's catastrophic wildness, that man as a race has decided it's time for logic to pay attention to the most unfathomable, the most mysterious, the perhaps scariest of all dark avenues. No, that is not the tendency for war or inhumanity, although these will be cleansed as fall-outs from this deeper search. The darkest mystery for the logical mind to approach is how life exists, how we are self-aware, and who-what-how is the hand of the creator of all. Some call this God, but others, equally correct, tag it Source. In the history of humanity, it has been called The Emanator. And there are many other names for this higher-than-physical, greater-than-logical concept of that which is beyond.
The probing has gone far in the subatomic microcosmic realm, a place where things have no real weight or form, and yet have energy and distinctive characteristics. Here is where some of the contemporary great minds are excitedly digging. For if the logical mind can determine the point and the manner in which creation comes about, a great new advance will take place throughout humanity's experience on this planet or beyond it.
That is not to say that science in its discovery, in its labeling, can still fathom that which is mysterious, but it sets it, and all the brain power that follows it, towards a great light. It paves the path to incredible new discovery.

APRIL 2013 ASTRO TIDBITS
During much of April, great tension between traditional values and progressive efforts intensifies the deep polarization, as change is shown through fits and starts (Saturn quinqunx Uranus). A fresh round of hostilities and aggression could be seen at this time, even a bombing by the 10th (New Moon conjunct Mars, widely square Pluto). However, continuing since Feb. 18th, the transformation of business and governments proceeds slowly and cautiously (Pluto station retrograde at 11 Capricorn, the same degree as Saturn's previous station). The 19th offers romantic idealism (Venus sextile Neptune) even as the 20th-21st indicate crazy behavior, upsetting news, and zealotry (Mercury opposite Uranus, square Pluto). On the 23rd, a mixed pattern looks good for news but not as nice for social events (Mercury sextile Jupiter, Venus opposite Saturn). The 25th emphasizes frustrations (Lunar Eclipse in Scorpio opposite Mars, conjunct Saturn, trine Neptune) but is favorable for financial matters and faith (Venus trine Pluto; Sun sextile Neptune). From the 26th-27th, healing efforts are attempted (Mars sextile Neptune).
For The U.S., April can be a terrific month for innovation and technology, especially in the health fields (Uranus sextile Uranus, trine Node), a beneficial period for alliances (Jupiter into H7), and a time when spirituality (rather than religion) is blessed - "In God We Trust", indeed! (Neptune in Grand Water Trine to progressed Saturn, Venus/Jupiter), even though the forces of cooperation vie with those of nationalism (progressed Moon in Libra H11 square progressed Node). There is a strong focus on homeland, rebuilding, strength, and innovation but there can be conflict; grassroots efforts work best now (Sun, Mercury, Venus, Mars, Uranus in Aries H4). A fresh start on the 10th shows healing efforts on the domestic front (New Moon in Aries conjunct Chiron exact in H4). New construction is favored through the 13th (Venus in H4), and the real estate market benefits by the 21st (Venus into Taurus). On the 5th, there can be strong disagreements, especially involving the people versus the government (Mars opposite progressed Mars), which can get nasty by the 13th (Mars square Mercury), but meanwhile the 14th-18th is beneficial for the economy (Jupiter trine Saturn). An odd combination of pleasant social events on the 13th (Venus sextile Moon) yet intolerance (Mars opposite progressed Moon) is followed by another mixed bag of brutal conflicts yet bold progress from the 17th-20th (Mars square Pluto, sextile Moon). Financial goals are delayed on the 25th (Lunar Eclipse in Scorpio conjunct progressed Saturn in H11).
President Obama begins the month feeling happy and lucky (Venus trine Sun; Jupiter sextile Sun). By the 9th-10th, he must focus on women and financial issues, and can encounter much friction therefrom (Mars and New Moon in H2 conjunct progressed Moon). By the 12th, he is aware that intense demands for change are pressurizing his style on the job (Pluto station retrograde quinqunx Sun), and he feels resentful through the 14th (Mars square Saturn). Mid month is turbulent and confusing for him (Uranus quinqunx progressed Pluto, Neptune in Yod), but by the 14th-19th he finds that a new approach gets better results (Mars trine Node). The second half of the month indicates disappointment but a sensible approach about what is possible (Saturn conjunct Neptune, sextile progressed Pluto). On the 24th, there is lots of talking, campaigning or discussions (Mars conjunct progressed Ascendant in H3, square Mercury), yet the 25th indicates confusing statements, even falsehoods (Lunar Eclipse in Scorpio in Grand Fixed Cross to Jupiter, Neptune, and Mercury).
New Pope Francis (Dec. 17, 1936, Buenos Aires), though naturally spiritual, humanitarian, and well-organized (Sun and Node in Sag; Venus in Aquarius; Mercury/Jupiter trine Uranus in Cap), will have his work cut out for him, entering office under pressure and challenges (Pluto conjunct natal Mercury; Saturn t-square natal Venus, natal Uranus), far from a "walk in the park".
