It hasn’t been easy. Human nature—at least Culture’s left hemisphere part of the mind—abhors chaos, can’t handle not knowing what the next step is; needs the security of control. Things in the Universe have been out of control: solar flares—ongoing—freezing conditions in Europe—continuing—and, just for entertainment, an occasional asteroid fly-by within 3.6million mile radius. As for personal emotions…the mind and the heart…don’t ask. Jupiter’s influence, usually auspicious, has had its mercy strained! In addition, we should all be hugely grateful to exit the two-year grip of a celestial Grand Cross, see back commentary for June 2010-12.
And, as we like to think sidereally here, since April 25th’s full (Scorpio) moon/lunar eclipse, there has been a surfeit of ‘death’ and transformational issues. Scorpio, ruled by Pluto, is about stripping away artifice, what’s false, corrupted and diseased, so healing will begin. And since the penumbral eclipse focused mainly on the cetacean population of the southern oceans, the rest of humanity was abandoned to sort out its own chaotic-upside-down nowhere-to-turn-but-inward lives. That about cover it?
Making the Unconscious Conscious
Following two years of restriction, hemmed in like fish in a glass tank with a vision of a world beyond our reach, the astral grip is loosening. Generous Jupiter, thanks to its massive abundant visionary self, comes crashing headlong into communications master Gemini*—the Outside World—which has held the Sun and Mercury in thrall for ten days—with more to come.

*Gemini, celestial twin personality: loves to see both sides, to argue black is white; hate is love in disguise; emotion is tweakable, and everybody has a mirror side, which Gemini likes to question and reveal. Gemini represents communication via media sources, frequently dual/false information, a hyper- or over-stimulated argumentative approach to resolution of difficulties, highlighted in negative focus on world crises. But it also works to enrage or incite us to action, based on our desire for fairness and individual freedom. And Jupiter, with grace, brings emotional answers to those ‘cultural’ problems.
In world—media—terms, external/societal/television attention focus on genetically modified organism [GMO] food marches in key cities across the nation over Memorial Day weekend, finally allowed the American Earthfirst movement to join the rest of the world in a groundswell towards honesty in human nutrition. The media aspect is pure Gemini. The undercurrent of wellbeing, sharing information on organically-grown alternatives to poisoned food are the workings of trustful Jupiter. Where world media ‘vampires’ rob us, by appealing to our egos, Jupiter injects faith in outcome: one-on-one kindness on a human scale, seeing both sides of the picture, empathizing with the ‘other’, meshing heart and mind; moving forward without controlling. A tall order, but the way ahead for our race, nonetheless.
Mercury, the winged messenger, ruler of Gemini, still holds supreme mental reins until he moves, along with Venus out of Gemini and into Cancer in early June.
With the present lineup (May 31st, 2013, EST) Sun, Mercury, Venus and Jupiter conjunct in Gemini, all loving, spiritual, mental and physical forces are holding together to pull us through this portal of Babel. With the Moon and Neptune standing together in watery Pisces, it is likely the world Oceans are playing a major part in the transition. It feels like the last bastion of social togetherness—human heart—VENUS-and-mind-MERCURY holding out against the freezing-hard-heartedness of Saturn standing proud in deathly Scorpio, along with an equally frozen Uranus-Pluto square.You are Divinely Guided and Deeply Loved
The greatest truth is that you are divinely guided through thisgreat journey called life by a higher Presence and purpose. You are just going to feel more successful, experience more love, become more abundant, have deeper peace, and feel more joy, bliss and freedom than ever before. Your life and your future is only going to get better and better and better! Accept this by taking a deep breath and inhale this information into your heart right now. Focus on feeling this expansive positive heart-felt future the first thing when you wake up each morning. Explore this sensation as reverently as you would care for your first new born child. This life is about learning how to let go of control…and letting in more gentleness and love. Just imagine that you inherited a magical pot of gold that is always pouring infinite great riches into your life every day

Let’s say for a moment, that this is it. The old ways have vanished or no longer work on demand. We are midway through a transition held open as a welcoming doorway by a sentient universe encouraging us to become more conscious beings: to forgive ourselves our mistakes—not constantly go back over them—but move on into flowing, un-controlling loving interaction among equals. It may sound lovely and pie-in-the-sky, but all it takes is to remember to start each day envisioning the change in one’s own life. And the more friends we share a trial run with, the more fun it becomes.
Since this blog’s relocation from one (eastern) Ocean to another (western) shore, Ascension-consciousness has been forefront in conversation, on the internet, on people’s lips. Along with the concept of purity of water, its scarcity and preciousness, California has led the U.S. in growing uncontaminated/organic natural food, while pressing antediluvian legislation for honesty in labeling [non-GMO organic] food we eat:
‘Success is achieved through excitement’
Walter Chrysler (1875-1940)
Life is meant to be creative and full of joyful moments. If you don’t naturally make that happen for yourself, there are yoga-wellness and self-realization technique centers in abundance, particularly where the mighty state University of California’s subsidiary branches reach. The populace sways gently with the changing tide: the metaphor applies not only to the Ocean’s hold over pre-boom fishing communities, a logging industry ‘converted’ (by local pressure) to environmentalist practices; and increased tourism (which has fractured old communities before). Small successes include the San Miguel Island nature reserve, picture top, and active treesits halting work on huge arteries by transit companies, tree felling held at bay, in respect for the planet’s last remaining virgin redwood forests and migratory birds.*
*In accordance with the (US) Migratory Bird Act, Caltrans may not work within 100 feet of a tree cradling a nesting migratory bird (nuthatch).
The prophecy foretells that enlightenment will rise from America, the ‘Babel of the West’.
‘…and breaking apart shall be the beginning of healing…’
Jupiter, ever optimistic, will rejoin his night-sky companions at the end of June to stand for two years in watery home-family-loving Cancer. July then brings a great (watery) beneficial trine—especially for Scorpios, Cancerians and Pisceans. This summer flowering, ‘opening’, allowing-through of the subconscious into the our conscious being may be led by Nature, and those lucky individuals ruled by water. There certainly have been enough predictions: that our watery friends are ready to rescue us, to lead us from prosaic left-brain bottom-line value judgments—epitomized by Gemini—into a conscious embrace of friendship, gratitude and love for our fellow travelers.
‘There is a river flowing now very fast. It is so great and swift that there are those who will be afraid. They will try to hold on to the shore. They will feel they are being torn apart and will suffer greatly.
Know the river has its destination.
The elders say we must let go of the shore, push off into the middle of the river, keep our eyes open and our heads above the water.
And I say, look around and see who is in there with you and celebrate’
Hopi Elder Prophecy, Oraibi, Arizona 2000
It’s really up to us.
The Siderealview is that we have been standing at the gate since well before 2012; and the Universe, sentient, reflective of us but infinitely more loving, guiding, parental, offers us a bridge between our thoughts and feelings, waits patiently for us to wake up, to allow our subconscious to filter through into our processing mind: to let heart and brain communicate, interact.
‘Why are you so afraid of the world? Fear of the world is really fear of Love’
It is time to let down the barriers to love. It’s not too scary to talk intimately with another fellow being. We do it on the internet all the time. Now it’s time for real players on the real stage.
With Jupiter to give us trust in outcome, regardless of feisty Geminids, we can do it. It’s what we all came here for.
