AstroGlossing: What Uranus did next – End of war mongering & a return to Free Love?

We’ve already had 2 Blue Moons this year..one of them an Eclipse too..and it’s been only 3 and a half months since 2018 started! In just under a month (15th May’18) there’s a huge shift about to happen…as the shocking, disruptive and innovative planet Uranus moves from fiery Aries to earth Taurus!

astroGlossing - May to November 2018 by Mani Navasothy

Uranus arrived in Aries back on 12th Match 2011… started to travel through Aries…had a retrograde motion and came almost to the early degrees of Aries by 10th December 2011…and so all that end of the world stuff, all the wars we have seen since then… with hot headed army and political boys playing with weaponised tech-toys.. intensified as we started 2012.. when Uranus started its proper and irreversible motion through Aries! Well..that’s the energy that’s coming to an end now.. (I’ve always said, Aries/Mars is like the fuse that lights the Uranus-fuel of volatile rebelliousness!).

So 15th May onwards, that energy becomes embedded in the luxury-seeking sensual earth Taurus. Definitely less war.. more love (Uranus rules Aquarius.. so I wonder if we’ll return to a new phase of `free love’..and if this is the phase 2 of the `Age of Aquarius’?! You read it here first folks! What do I know? Am just reeling it off intuitively as it comes into my mind).

Then of course we have the triple-set of Eclipses!!
13th July (new moon/partial Solar Eclipse in Cancer), 27th July (Full moon/Total Lunar Eclipse in Aquarius), and 11th August (new moon/ partial solar eclipse in Leo). I’ll be writing about that in extensive details later in a blog ( hey I wrote the first proper book on `Eclipse Magic’ back in 2012! I gotta give Eclipses some proper attention).

The other big shift is on 8th November, when fiery expansive Jupiter..currently travelling through deep & watery Scorpio, leaves Scorpio, and finally…after 12 years, arrives in the fiery Sagittarius.. a sign ruled by Jupiter! Yes Jupiter completes a 12 year zodiac tour of duty and comes home!! And Sagittarians all over the cosmos..okay just all over the World…will throw a party that will last 12 months!! (If you want to get invited to that, now is the time to get on their good side.. though being gregarious and kind and generous…they’ll invite you nearer the time anyway.. But as they are going through the `an elephant never forgets’ phase now.. it might be good to stay on their good side now..!

As for me..? I’m holding grudges this year and throwing a party in November ! 😉 :-p

A Theory of Evil: On the Collective, murderous instincts, Angels, Demons and Entities in between!!

Everything living has a survival instinct..and when a moment comes – to be killed or be killed, each must make a choice. That’s just biology. I also believe in the Collective unconscious, where all the minds are linked.. And that when we humans don’t deal with our emotions, repress them, we sink those shadows deep into the collective..adding to its murky waters..
It follows that every killing instinct everyone has all adds up.. every hurt person who wants to lash out at their offender.. can seek revenge by hurting back or repressing or dealing with that (process it and transform it).
Now I think that some of us are strong willed enough to sink our repressed feelings and instincts…and get on with life. But some poor sod (person) out there who has no strength of Will…but is connected to the human collective…will have a weak `flooring’ through which the repressed collection of harmful instincts will erupt out.. !!
In short, what we repress comes out in someone else.. and they become the villain…the abuser..the killer..the rapist..the murderer!
This much I have formulated/understood and believed for over a decade and a half..(since 2001 when i started learning transpersonal psychology and blending it with my own spirituality and beliefs). ps. I call this my `Volcano theory of human shadows!’ (that the visual I get).
When we are faced with such a villain, it’s easy to brand him/ her as utterly evil.. It’s humanly impossibly not to hate or vilify that person. I personally would fall for that every time.. ! We would even call that person `Evil’ . But i try to accept that…that person is only a conduit for the sum of all our own darkness and shadows!
As for Evil.. I actually don’t think there is such a thing.. shockingly!!
But there is a selfish drive in all of us..all beings..including the spirits..that were once human or animal..or were never born as such. I don’t think that dying somehow removes some of these selfish or self-preserving drives.
It is my belief now (after the last 4 years of various psychic experiences)..that the spirit world is full of creatures.. entities.. everything from ghosts of a dead worm and insects to humans..and some forces we come to call angels.. even Gods! everything wants to survive..to go on..to keep its identity. They will do this however way they see fit.. unless some altruistic feelings stop them from hurting other beings. The dead worm’s spirit will keep on trying to scour for `food’ (energy).. and that can be coming from vampiristic / leeching from humans who are living..
And the `Angels’ won’t steal from us..but try to aid.. As for Demons.. they are probably larger beings who act on their drive for energy and power ..and may temporarily `work’ to aid some humans..but in the end ..their motives are entirely self-serving.
Well..this is the grand theory/ belief I have constructed for myself over years.. and this is probably the first time I have put it all in one go..in one place.. (these exist in copious hand written notes in paper…and spill out when i give talks or workshops..in pieces)

–version 1: 11th April 2018
——————————————————–
The above was written in answer to a friend’s question about do I believe people can be evil or who they become by following a path.
That question arose in answer to my post :
Angels & Demons in our minds and magical works:
It puzzles me.. why, when we have so many hundreds if not thousands of Godforms, Angelic forces, fairies, dragons and nature spirits.. do some people leap off and seek Devils & Demonic forces to work with?
I don’t accept the explanation that they are working with their shadows. If that’s the case, the first option is a Therapist, a counselor or a Psychiatrist!
The only explanation I can think of is…those others believe that their work with `demonic forces’ is somehow more fundamental or more powerful …than any other forms or forces..such as Gods & Angels!
Millions if not billions of people around the Globe get on with their lives, without it, and at best they call on a God or Angel…more so than a demon!
Never mind them…I myself have got this far in life.. by working with Gods and Goddess forms, and perhaps some angelic energies. When certain entities are trying to intrude, a simple `Om Shivaya’ chant has been more than enough to stop it. Perhaps it’s the Gods..perhaps its my belief in the Gods.. that gives me this advantage over unknown forces. It’s safe to say, my work will always be with the light, while I carry on illuminating my own transpersonal shadows.

The `Them & Us’ of Christians vs Witches?! (my personal views)

The whole thing of religious `Them & us’ has come up elsewhere on my wall. It relates in part to the old Witches being persecuted by Christians. So am writing this post (*1).
Note Them vs us  Witches vs Christians.jpg
The inference is that modern wiccans who practices Wicca & Witchcraft as a religious / neo pagan path.. are carrying some old `racially’ suppressed trauma of their ancestors being persecuted..and have an inherent `fear/ dislike/ apprehension/ animosity (take your pick’ or some similar feeling) against Christians!.
Truth of the matter is.. many modern witches and wiccans actually can’t prove their own lineage extends that far to the witches of the old.. I argue that there is no such `racial memory’ and that it’s just a fad..a presumed feeling.. because people love to have just historical clues and reasons for carrying causes.. (we can just believe in a cause and carry it.. we don’t’ need a historical justification or reason or validation).
Being an initiated Wiccan & Witch ( now pushing past 21 years of it..) sometimes I get the feeling I am expected to carry these `party lines’ of the `persecuted witches’.. a feeling of `them and us’ against Christians.
Am sorry to disappoint all.. but as Hindu I grew up not just going to the Temple with my family in my boyhood days, but also to adjacent Christian Churches. In fact we’d pick and choose what Gods we went to to pray for.. One example would be, when i had a strange mole on my finger, i was advised to go to the St.Anthony’s church for 7 weeks and pray, take a bit of salt & pepper, and crawl under the stand where a certain St.Anthony statue was. I did that and the mole disappeared long before the 7th week, though I completed the 7 weeks. It can be said that was my first practice of self delusion, prayer or heaven forbid.. Magic!(*2).
If anything I should have a prejudice against Buddhists..because it’s the Sinhalese people who were majority Buddhists who have caused racial violence against my Tamil / Hindu people..and murdered thousands.. back in Sri Lanka.. I’ve lived through not one but two of those episodes…running for our lives each time.
Yet I do my best to educate myself and weed out any hidden prejudices that may have developed as a result of those direct personal life and death episodes…which in theory should make me hate every Buddhist on the planet. So moral of my personal tale is.. enough of this `them and us crap’ !
I now don’t give a frack about what religion did to what other religion way before my time..
None of the `Witches’ living in our times have ever been persecuted to death enmass for their religions by another.. (save for a few individual harassment cases) .
As someone who actually has been persecuted for his religion, I think my perspective and aspirations should stand higher than these petty them-us arguments. As such, I do not ever want to see it or hear it in my presence from my open minded friends..
If I can be a hybrid of so many beliefs and not explode or go insane…then there is no excuse for anyone else(*3)!

Footnotes:
*1:  Am NOT a Ph.D in English, and nor do i have to worry about composing a thesis here that’s gotta hold water.. These are just my simple human sentiments.. typed in one go without editing (Thank you Mercury direct!). So please do see beyond the specifics and to the message I am trying to convey..
*2:   There are other incidents of Hindu priests advising the family of rope & water magic for finding out lost family dog, and one drunken father cursing someone with water ..and many a sessions with my grandmother who did all manner of potions, lotions, wafting of incense, flames and shamanic spitting to ward of evil eyes, o the local soothsayer lady who went into a trance and channeled Goddess Kali.. and advised devotees.
On the harsher side, I have as a boy just about sneaked a peep at a new Kali temple being consecrated with many animal sacrifices..and seeing their blood run in a small stream past me! (This is why it makes me extremely concerned when people purport to worship Goddess Kali in the west as if she’s some pussycat in their pocket.. Would they do so with the terrible Sekhmet who had an equal bloodthirsty mythical origin in Ancient Egypt? I think not.
*3:   Am sadden to hear that there’s even a divide of `Them & Us’ …from a Hereditary Witch’s point of view, towards rets of the Wiccans.

Pixelations: A Social Media overload for business & pleasure!

Am seeing this disillusionment all around me.. Perhaps it’s the Mercury-direct or the Saturn-retrograde just starting…but the pattern is too much to ignore. People with online business dreams are feeling deflated. Others feeling despair..dismay.. and a lot of other dis-something
pixelation a social media overload
here’s what I wrote on a friend’s wall on this matter.
“..the whole `facebook network brings growth and business’ is a complete fallacy. Long ago I was telling people / pagan organisations to get with the times and get on FB.. Now I’m saying `FB is a waste for business’ and this too will come to pass. (meanwhile other things are growing and spreading in between the pixel-gaps!)
People use it as an escapism… a time passing devise.. Everyone will `like’ ..pages and groups will grow.. There’ll be lots of exchanges.. and everyone then forgets.
How can our brains cope with such an overload?
With overwhelming options and alternatives, what results is an option-paralysis and inactivity.. not more activity. There are now over 1 Billion accounts on FB (world population is 8 Billion for comparison)..and everyone is being `encouraged’ to sell on FB.. It’s an impossible scenario..doomed to fail as we go beyond saturation levels..
The dot-com bubble burst..So will FB selling & marketing fantasy.
I stopped `investing’ in FB growth about 1-2 years ago..and just play.
My advise..? build a website..and keep it alive.. It has a slightly better chance of being discovered when people actually have a need and search google for it..
But beyond that, Keep it all real and keep it physical.. make real impressions face to face.. That’s what’s going to work.. ad anchor in the mind. (I can’t remember 1000 people’s names, posts and lives, or the 600+ pages I am supposedly `liking’ and benefiting from. But a person I met 2 years ago, I remember easily, because there was dancing in the rain, sitting with others naked in a sauna, and songs of a rebellious form! That memory stayed firm in my mind for 2 years..and was instantly accessible. And this post you might forget..but the keys I just planted might linger in your minds 
Real physical impressions involving 5 senses are the key, especially when pixels will fade.. Afterall, everything we see online is coming to us as visual input and now a bit of sound too on videos.. Its not enough anymore…not when there’s an avalanche of them competing for our attention..and the best we can do it consume it and file it in our short term storage… and visual memory will fade sooner or later if not anchored in the brain .. That’s biology we can’t ever beat..!
So don’t look for an alternative social media..or an App that manages other Apps.. or better pixelation strategies. Marketers are clever and desperate for your custom.. Augmenting reality? What the actual f**k is that, for heaven’s sake? Something is real or not. So ..get real!

ps.  Me writing about this online on my blog, about social media, may seem like a man sitting on a branch up a tree and sawing off that very branch.  But while there is a certain facility for viewer-comments and writer-replies, websites & blogs are very much authority building top level google-searchable platforms.  These are formal exotic gardens where as social media is like the weedy forest floor.  Yes there’s valuable precious medicinal plant life there…but also a lot of rubbish that no one clears out…  if you catch my drift.

woodland beltane bg2018

About Beltane:

`The veil between the world of men and fairy (or spirit) is said to thin twice a year, at Beltane and at Samhain, which are on opposite points of the year wheel. At Beltane (May eve) the land is at it’s most lush and green, and fertile. If Spring Equinox is the time of fertility and mating in the animal kingdom, then Beltane is one of courting couples making commitment to one another- and Handfastings! In the God-Goddess myths, this is when the playful God is said to commit to the Goddess – which is symbolised by the Sacred Marriage! The Maypole dance that is traditional at this time symbolises the fertile powers of the masculine, penetrating the land, and the ribbons danced and woven around it lock that power! A ring of flower at the tip of the Maypole signifies the feminine. Magical working with the Fay (Fairies) is an important feature at this time, in contrast to the magical work with the departed spirits at Samhain, the opposite point’ (taken from http://www.WitchcraftandMagic.uk )

RITUAL :

Out ritual *Team will conduct key aspects of the ceremony, with plenty of opportunities for everyone to get involved in the actual ritual – ie with elements calling, chants, magical work and so on.

2nd Blue Moon Ritual by river Thames (31st March 2018)

This is the 2nd and final Blue Moon for this year.. and for several years to come. So let us come together and honour the Lady of the Moon, and do magic at the Heart of London. At the start of March’18, we did a full moon ritual by river Thames, so we are going to do this to complete the magic we started.

No prior knowledge or experiences of wicca or ritual magic is necessary for you to attend this. Just come with an open mind. Be friendly and non-intrusive. Connect with others, and join in the ceremony.

2nd and final Blue Moon for this year
2nd and final Blue Moon for this year  http://www.QuantumPhoenix.net

 

Outline:

-Preparing space & setting up Altar.
-Run-through- delegate any roles. Brief Q&A.
-Enter Ritual space with reverence.
-Opening prayers.
-Consecrations
-Casting magic Circle
-Calling elemental quarters
-Energy raising
-Invocations / prayers to Deities (Moon Goddess)
-Magical work
-Cakes & Wine blessing
-Closing & Grounding work
– Feasting, Socialising…

Suggested donation : £3/£2 appreciated. Thank you.

Meeting point:

Gather outside the Green area of Tate Modern Gallery (main doors). We’ll walk down to the banks of Thames and do this ceremony. If you are late, just find the steps, walk down to river bank, and join us. We’re usually under the concrete over-hang/ sheltered space. Thames & Tides:

Our rituals tale place on the actual river bank…just few meters away from the water, but in a secluded spot..where there is usually some sand. We organise these Thames-rituals after checking Port of London authority Thames Tide time tables.. to take place at low tide.. (At high tide the entire river bank is under many meters of water!!).
On this evening, lowest tide is at 9.40pm after which point water level begins to rise. Therefore we will get down to river bank and begin ritual at 8.30pm. It takes several hours for tide to come in.. so after ritual.. if we notice the tide turning ..we still have plenty of time to pack up and go up the steps to street level.

Safety:
The steps are slippery. bank of Thames after previous tide will be full of new things and sharp objects. Take extreme care with your own health & safety. You are responsible for your safety.
**No children allowed**
**Unfortunately the location is not suitable for anyone with walking disabilities**

What to bring:

• Please dress appropriate for weather! (we carry on Rituals regardless of weather).
• Please bring food & drinks to share ( bread & cheese / humus are a good start) and any soft drink/wine that you like to share with others in circle.
• a torchlight is a good idea. Feasting/ sharing food & Drinks:

After the ritual circle on the river bank is completed, some people leave for home. Others stay behind to socialise. We tend to go back up to street level, to the grassy green area outside Tate Modern Gallery and socialise/ share food & drinks.. If it’s raining, we just go to the nearby Pub within sight.

Bright Blessings
