The Official Newsletter of Wisdom Path, by Judi Thomases 
        Astrology & Channeled Guidance in Every Issue                                                                Jan. 2014  Volume 71



By the time this newsletter comes out, it will be a New Year and a fresh start for my husband and myself, both of whom are Capricorns and just had birthdays.


And maybe it will also be a fresh start for tackling a lot of issues that are weighing on people's minds and don't feel right.   The energy pattern is particularly tense as Mars comes along and lights a match to an already-stressed-out longterm tinder keg. Besides the headlines that are sure to result, some people will feel this on a personal basis as anger, tension, and distress, especially the cardinal signs: my own, Aries, Cancer, and Libra. So don't be surprised if your own life gets a little too dramatic for your peace of mind!


I know what I've decided to do to address this. (And no, it's not the typical New Year's resolution of dieting and getting healthier because down here in Delaware there's just too much good food and social events connected to eating!) My resolution addresses the distress when tensions arise and anger issues blow up out of proportion, and that is to apply more love to the situation


It's hard to do this because anger sure trumps softer emotions, and out of anger comes, what? Hate! Who needs that?! Not only is hate a negative emotion, it's really low on the consciousness scale. Hate happens when you get so angry at somebody that you don't have any love left. And what remains isn't a nice neutral field. When you can't feel love or like, that darned ol' emotion of hate comes right in and fills up the empty space.


So you kind of have to add more love to the formula. You have to inject love into yourself when you're angry, and boy, is that hard! But it is like medicine. And hate's not the only emotion that can disturb you, distress you, and lead to unhealthy physical results, because depression is right down there on that scale too. Depression, too, could use a big infusion of love or at least passion. An infusion of enthusiasm.


Well, that's my New Year's resolution. I have no doubt that, with transformative Pluto right on my Sun, whatever I end up doing this year, will work.


Thanks for listening.

Book Review: "The Untethered Soul: The Journey Beyond Yourself", by Michael A. Singer (New Harbinger Publications, 2007)

Written in simple (one might even say, simplistic) language, the book serves up a very clear and easy-to-follow path that is essentially Buddhist in nature, taking one through the meditative process of changing one's entire energy system and achieving the release from life's pain it eventually produces.

In clear language, author Michael A. Singer takes the reader through the identification of the dialogue inside your head, exploring this dialogue by the ways it keeps you mired in negative thoughts, closing your heart time and again.  He asks the question in Chapter 3 about Who Are You?, and helps the reader to understand that he or she is not the thoughts, emotions or even the experiences that are had.  Through the meditative process, he explains that you can take control of what you're focusing on, and step back from it to see that a part of you is always present.  He then speaks of the result of this process, which is the release or freeing of energy
, and he furthermore helps you to see how this liberation of staying in the observer mode and enjoying the sense of greater energy and lightening that occurs brings you closer to your essential (spiritual) self.

I like his emphasis on your ability to make choices.  "The natural ups and downs of life", he tells us, "can either generate personal growth or create personal fears."  In explaining the "anatomy of falling" - which would be falling backwards, away from awareness, back into your lower vibrations - he paints a picture of a kind of failure that takes you away from your own liberation.  And he also doesn't shy away from the need to face painful thoughts or episodes that stick in your side as an "inner thorn".  To go beyond them and learn the technique of losing fear and constantly lifting your mind and psyche into an unaffected and neutral place requires a letting-go and a willingness to, we could say, go with the flow.  And he promises - as all Buddhist philosophy does - that this letting-go, or path of non-resistance brings one to bliss, to peace, to liberation, and to a relationship to the world in general, with one's own life and with one's relationships, that is harmonious and blissful.

Since the description of this path is completely Buddhist, there is nothing to take issue with than to point out that his gift is to make it very accessible to the contemporary mind, to use illustrations and dialogue that makes it very clear and simple as to what this path consists of.  My quibble is twofold: first of all, throughout his book, Singer continuously refers to the "inner" and the "outer" (to the individual, and to Source or God) as separate things.  His path takes him into a relationship within himself, between these two poles, that is comfortable and even delightful.  But nowhere do I see the concept of the transcendence of the separate self, and the merging of that self with the All... in other words, the overcoming of duality.  To me, this represents a limitation on full realization.  Secondly, most of his advice consists of being consciously present and able to psychologically and intellectually address your pain, your negative emotions, and your life's predicament.  This would be well and good for those who are of a rational temperament, or of a sufficient intelligence.  However, my own experience with clients and everyday people shows me that many cannot sit still and apply meditative techniques or sufficient psychological awareness to overcome their personal drama.  There are physical disabilities, mental disorders, emotional problems and horrendous situations all over the globe that make a simplistic answer or technique difficult and sometimes impossible to implement.  For example, a bipolar person will have a very hard time mastering swells of emotion merely by applying thought.  Or a person who is in a war-torn country in which drone bombs may fall at any time will have great difficulty and cannot be expected, as a well-fed, well-educated Westerner might, simply to sit in peaceful meditation and develop the process during sufficient time to reach these stages of peace and enlightenment.  While it is not impossible to do so (there are examples throughout history of saintly figures and heroic ones who have overcome dire circumstances), it is not typical, and Singer does not at any time address the conundrum of one's karmic predicaments.

This book is very valuable to those who are in a position to apply his wisdom and utilize his techniques but for many people this book might not hit the nail on the head, well meaning as it is.  A qualified recommendation.

Spirit's Words:
 Monthly Channeling- January '14

Teachings of The Brotherhood of Light Workers
By Judi Thomases   


The following segment has been received, word for word through a psychic process known as channeling.  It is an invited procedure.  The teachings always serve to guide us through the journey of life.  Compilations of many such messages are available in book, PDF and audio formats:




What can be given to the world for the New Year?


We say that you are golden. You are shining forth. You are radiating warmth as does sunshine, for that is the substance of which you are made, and you are nearing the beginning of realizing this. In effect, you are returning home.


The clanging and crashing of the world, with its distress and even its killing, serves as background for this birth, this reawakening, this renewal. It is almost as though terror, horror and chaos are required as contrast, for if you did not know the cold you could not fathom warmth, and if you did not know lead you could not appreciate gold.


It is the nature of humanity to resist change, to wallow in excess, to explore all manner of the dark, and to reach self-loathing before there can be growth and upwards movement. Transformation is like giving birth in that there are labor pains and a great push before the new entity can come out and reach daylight.


This is what the new era holds. And you will look and find headlines in the news describing the negative. But in the background, semi-hidden, grows a wonderful development. Many souls are striving towards their understanding of a more holy pattern, of a way of life that is kinder, cleaner, and more resplendent. People with talent are coming forward to write, sing, dance, and otherwise convey both the birth pangs and the re-creation. People who are sensitive and receptive are searching and feeling around for some finer ground. And people who are of some achievement are stretching forth to help others.


This change is subtle and not obvious, but it is happening. And so we bring the message of a golden dawn. We herald this. Take heart. Sense it. Become a part of the change. Feel it within you. It resides in your heart. Gold sunshine is here in the recesses of that organ. Bring it forth.

2014 by Judi Thomases


For the world, the New Year kicks off with a tremendous bang indicative of an eruption of rage and violence (New Moon conjunct Pluto, square Mars; Mars square Pluto)! Continuing into January 3rd, people are very angry (Mars square Sun), and the energy shows no signs of abating through the 9th (Mars square Jupiter). By mid-month, a softening may take hold (Neptune trine Node in water signs), and from the 16th-17th, while there is still disharmony (Mars square Venus), some helpful ideas are presented that can address the anger through innovations (Mercury sextile Uranus). Communications are important on the 25th-26th but may lead nowhere (Mars trine Mercury; Mercury square Saturn). World markets are under pressure to adapt during the last week of the month (Jupiter opposite Pluto), yet the month closes with fresh technological opportunities (New Moon in Aquarius sextile Uranus) and a struggle to implement better values into economies and relationships (Venus station direct in Capricorn conjunct Pluto, opposite Jupiter).


For The U.S., economic goals are looking more realizable (progressed Moon in Scorpio 11th, soon to trine U.S. Jupiter in February), and the national mood is fairly good (progressed Ascendant semi-sextile U.S. Midheaven) despite simmering anger on the 7th (Mars conjunct U.S. Saturn in H10). A boost for business is seen on the 1st (New Moon in Capricorn H2), and the feeling of a new era prevails during the first half of the month (Uranus sextile U.S. Uranus). Idealism and hope are in evidence too (Neptune trine Venus). Mid-month sees a push-pull for the economy (Jupiter conjunct U.S. progressed Jupiter/Sun, square U.S. Saturn), and a fortunate pattern for the stock market (Full Moon conjunct U.S. Fortuna/progressed Node in H8), yet anger comes to the surface on the 17th (Mars conjunct U.S. progressed Mars in H10). Late month brings patient development in the midst of frustration (Saturn sextile U.S. Neptune, quinqunx U.S. Mars). Inspiration is strong during the last week of the month (Neptune trine U.S. progressed Moon). On the 31st, people are ready to splurge or party (Venus station direct opposite U.S. Sun exact).


Since December, President Obama seems out of touch with his increasing unpopularity which endures through next September (Saturn square his Ascendant). From the 4th-8th, he will not find a warm reception (Venus station retrograde conjunct his Saturn/progressed Saturn). Certainly, during the first half of the month he will feel bewildered by rapid changes (Uranus quinqunx his Neptune, quinqunx his Pluto forming a Yod), and may seem delusional although inspired (Neptune square his Moon, sextile his progressed Moon). He finds success and harmony via "speechifying" (progressed Moon and progressed Ascendant in H3; progressed Sun trine Moon in air signs). Between the 16th-17th, the economy requires attention, and he becomes energized (Full Moon opposite his Saturn/progressed Jupiter; Mars trine his Ascendant), but family matters may disappoint unless he attends there too (progressed Moon quinqunx progressed Sun, semi-sextile Moon). An emotional resolution can be found on the 26th (progressed Moon trine progressed Venus). The final week indicates a power struggle (Pluto quinqunx his Sun).


Obamacare (3/23/2010, 11:55 AM EST, Washington D.C.), implemented under a pattern of health emphasis for the nation but very "crazy" technological conditions (progressed Moon, chart ruler, into Virgo; progressed Uranus, from a natal conjunction to the Midheaven, conjunct it), encountered a hard launch with severe delays (progressed Midheaven opposite Saturn), but will see the first of a series of repairs more to the public's liking by April (Pluto station retrograde conjunct Descendant), after which by May, people will be happier with it (progressed Mercury conjunct Venus in H10;progressed Moon trine Pluto, sextile Moon). By April 2015, even better repairs will help its inherent purpose (Pluto station retrograde conjunct Descendant exact, sextile Jupiter), after which the Affordable Care Act will be able to settle down and meet its real business requirements (Pluto conjunct Node in Capricorn H7).
