... The sling-shot energy from the Solar Eclipse sends everyone into a new environment ...

This week, May 29th through June 4th, provides the sling-shot from our current situation into mid-air and finally into a new environment. The events from this week become wild with excitement as many adjustments take place.

Sunday brings the early morning connection of Jupiter and the Moon, which comes into close proximity to display the connection signaling that this eventful week is about to take place. Monday brings Moon to connect with action-oriented Mars and resolution-oriented Venus, both of which display magnificent options brought into motion. These opportunities come into play with new information that flies into the day on Tuesday. This information prompts change in many directions, which opens the curtains for the New Moon/Solar Eclipse on Wednesday, June 1st. Many events will be tossed into motion by the sling-shot of this Solar Eclipse that send us into our new environment. The events of the day spread quickly as full-fledged launch patterns visibly portray new directions darting across the cosmic skies.

Thursday Mercury moves into Gemini, joining the Sun to accentuate the information and changes that are visible from the jet patterns, igniting the visibility of changes. The angles of adjustments for many people come from Neptune, as new spiritual blueprints are brought forward that have been awaiting the signaled changes. These new blueprints announce the spiritual adjustments and present the maps of our new journey. All information is tossed onto the table.

Saturday, June 4th brings Jupiter's expansion phase from innovative, fiery Aries to the landing pattern onto the Taurus tarmac of our new environment. The situations that we have been putting into motion through our actions (as actions speak) will become the environment we land in at this time.

June is a ONE universal month, providing the new energy, which opens the floodgates for information to push us onto new shores. Many situations will become visible as we are thrust forward with the mega events that push us into June. The location of 11 Gemini pinpoints the target of the mega events as if an asteroid field were hitting our life as we fly through this time. It becomes important to get the message and to focus on our new environment that brings a destined new stage.

* May 2011 = 5 + 2011 =2016, (2 + 0 + 1 + 6 = 9)
Universally, May is a NINE month

I received a subscriped newsletter from Michelle Karén, Michelle Karén is M.A.( Master of Arts ), D.F.Astrol.S ( Diploma of the Faculty of Astrological Studies ) an Astrologer and author of Astrology For Enlightenment - the newsletter informed of three Spiritually impostant days to come, first as close as this Wednesday as we experience a Solar Eclipse.

Here are the Details from that Newsletter!


The 3 upcoming eclipses in June and July 2011
An eclipse always signifies a major turning point in our lives. Depending on where it falls in our natal chart ( map of the heavens for the exact date, time and place of our birth ), irrevocable shifts happen, rerouting us and placing us on better tracks for our highest evolution to occur. Within a month of the actual date of the eclipse, we shall be clear on what changed. We should always be careful on eclipse days as to what we say and how we say it, as our words and thoughts could lead to rapid manifestations.

Usually eclipses happen in twos: a lunar (Full Moon) and a solar (New Moon). It is extremely rare to find 3 eclipses back to back, as we shall be experiencing between June 1 and July 1st.

On Wednesday June 1 at 2:30 PM PDT (CA time), the Solar Eclipse will occur in Gemini (11º02’).
This special New Moon is represented in the Sabian Symbols by the following image: “A Negro girl fights for her independence in the city”. This eclipse helps us free ourselves from the ghosts of our past. It offers us the chance to assert our mastery. We are likely to receive long overdue rewards for past efforts.
The astrological chart of this eclipse shows that we shall become clearer on what makes us feel nurtured and  how we can become more grounded in our private lives. We could feel the need to move or rearrange our living circumstances. If repairs are needed in our home, it could be a good idea to ask first for an estimate as the costs could end up being a lot more than expected.
We could also deepen our understanding of our family links and get insights into our parallel lives and why we chose the parents we have. This could lead to a greater understanding of our fears, insecurities and a chance to clear what is standing in the way of us becoming all that we are in our divinity.
Speaking good words and thinking caring thoughts create the positive energy enabling us to retrieve ancient wisdoms carried over from other lifetimes.
There could be more harmony in our finances. We could be happily surprised by an income we didn’t expect anymore or a “lucky” break. The more we focus on following our intuition and doing what we love, the more easily money will be magnetized to us in ways that may seem quite mysterious.  We could literally see it appear as we need it.
The unexpected is likely to occur also in a love relationship. Either a sudden break-up or an unusual coming together. A love could become a friendship. A friendship could switch to love. A long lost love could re-emerge. The survival of an existing relationship will depend largely on how flexible we and our partner are towards each other’s dreams. If we can truly respect each other’s independence and uniqueness, as well as balance our needs for freedom with intimacy, a whole new level of relationship may be experienced that is extremely liberating.
This eclipse also helps us go deeper into our subconscious. We could have premonitory dreams, and profound visions.  This eclipse builds a bridge between the old and the new. As we keep what still works and integrate new ways of walking our path, an exciting balance is reached.
On Wednesday June 15, at 1:14 PM PDT, the Lunar Eclipse (Full Moon) will occur at 24º23’ Sagittarius.
This degree is symbolized by “A chubby boy on a hobby-horse”. This points to powers we know we can experience in the future by anticipating them now. As we create the emotion of what we want as having already received it, it will manifest.
This eclipse stresses the importance of developing our creativity as well as open communication with a person we cherish.
There could be a major earthquake or volcano eruption. An important clearing away of the old is taking place both literally and symbolically.
A new light could be shed on our genealogical tree and/or parallel lives. We could discover secrets about our lineage that help us understand more deeply our roots and the origin of certain emotional reactions we have. A great eclipse to clear old fears and insecurities.
We could find that, as we tap into our inner resources and focus on what we truly love and are skilled at, our finances improve dramatically.
This eclipse asks us to open to new cultures, languages, countries. We may be called to travel and as we do, learn things and meet new friends who expand our horizons in magnificent ways.
Subtle changes are occurring at a cellular level in our bodies. We could become very sensitive to atmospheres and naturally stay away from denser foods, preferring to eat less, more high frequency, organic, raw fruit and vegetables. We are likely to be drawn to exercise that is in harmony with the wisdom of our bodies.
We stand in our power, very aware of our truth, very clear with regard to our priorities. A time to focus on what is important to us and with a breath of kindness, brush the rest away...
On Friday July 1st at 1:54 AM PDT, the Solar Eclipse (New Moon) will be at 9º12’ Cancer.
The Sabian Symbol for this degree is “A large diamond in the first stages of the cutting process”. As we arduously strive to perfection, we begin to fully incarnate our ideal.
Issues around home and security could surface. We may be called to move or redecorate our home. We may want it to be a place of intellectual and spiritual stimulation, inviting people over whose minds we admire and respect.
We are likely to be more serious, more focused and practical  in our careers. Our ambitions are clear. We meet our duties with a sense of responsibility.  We could either receive a promotion or become more committed to reaching our goals. We are not afraid to work long hours to fulfill our obligations.
A long distance trip to a country we feel a deep inner connection to, could prove life-changing, exposing us to sages and a whole new understanding of our place in the universe.
We are attracted to like-spirited friends who inspire us to greater dreams.
We become quite dynamically involved in creating the financial abundance we need through parallel/complementary activities requiring both movement and active communication.
Sudden insights could come through meditation or dreams that reveal our inner landscape in a blinding light. A chance to break free from the past and own deeper aspects of our subconscious that were previously hidden or unavailable.
Our renewed faith in life, trust in ourselves open magical doors. As we approach life with great enthusiasm and an open spirit, the seemingly impossible, becomes possible.

Love, Light and Joy!

I truly recommend this discussion!
Daniel G. Amen is interviewed by Gay and Katie Hendricks about our Brain and how having an unhealthy brain causes grave emotional relationship problems, and how a healthy brain can handle the tools to improve their emotional skills. Interesting sidetracks happened where Daniel G. Amens talks about natural remedies vs. drugs in treating brain related troubles, he speaks how using a drug like Xanax in brain spectrum imaging shows up as brain being drunk, where as St. Johnswart a natural herb for debression only shows a healthier brain, but has same results.
Interestingly he also talks of how alcohol makes your brain smaller and how overweight people have smaller brains, talks about the studies conducted on them.
I personally already was aware of these two studies, but it was interesting he brough them up as well.

Listen to FREE recordings of 30 speakers illuminating the secrets of true partnership! 
Beginning May 23rd 2011

"The go-it-alone cowboy mentality is hurting our families, our relationships, our organizations, and our planet - contributing to isolation, cut-throat competition, dysfunctional teams and divided family units.
We’ve spent too many years learning about “I, me and mine” and not enough about “we” - how do WE successfully create relationships, business partnerships and collaborations based on clear principles that allow our gifts to shine.
It’s now time for True Partnership - between men and women, between same sex couples, between businesses and the environment, between cultures and between religions.
Partnering skills are essential to harnessing the genius of collaboration, the joys of love and the gifts of social synergy. They are the foundation for creating a better world.
The only issue is that most of us were never taught the basics!"

"The Conscious Partnering Conference 2011 is here to change that. We’ve gathered the world’s leading experts to help you understand the principles and practices that create truly satisfying partnerships - from your home to the office and on to groups that share your passion for positive change.

Join us and you’ll learn to:
  •     Gracefully navigate common triggers and conflict in intimate relationships
  •     Communicate your desires in a way that leads to common ground
  •     Create clear agreements for effective business partnerships
  •     Relate in both masculine and feminine ways
  •     Apply partnership principles to our relationship with the natural world
  •     Create sacred unions and spiritual partnerships
  •     Deepen your bond to communities - moving beyond “me” to “we”
We’re in a world facing many crises. What’s heartbreaking is that there are so many incredible solutions available, yet we’re paralyzed by unhealthy individualism and an inability to cooperate.

Join us to be part of the solution at the Conscious Partnering Conference. Learn new skills, practices and secrets you can apply in every area of your life - from finding and sustaining romance and creating deeper bonds with your children to building fun and successful business partnerships and collaborating with others to bring about peace, sustainability and abundance for all.

I signed up for this Conference Series, in order to truly learn the WE of US. Namaste.

I have TWO great audio teleseminars to share with you, both Free ofcourse ( you know this is to be expected with me by now ;) ).

First is "Birth 2012: Co-Creating Planetary Shift on December 22nd 2012" with Barbara Marx Hubbard
To access this 1 HOUR lecture, you need to sign in @ with your name and e-mail address.
Then go to and sign in with the e-mail address to get access to the recording from March 22nd.
"So, for a moment, just take the perspective of a universal human, an astronaut. You are circling earth, you are visualizing and seeing it as a whole system struggling to coordinate, running out of its old form of energy. Its nervous system beginning to connect us all so we feel the pain of one throughout the whole body. And feel as this pain increases, there is an uprising of empathy. Our species is becoming empathetic. For the very first time, we are feeling the pain of others throughout the planetary body. As the empathy and heart connection increases among us, there is an awakening of the spirit within us and that spirit that has impelled each of us to be on this phone call and the hundreds of millions that will participate in the planetary birth on December 21 and 22, each of us is impelled by this source of creation itself. We are impelled by the process and impulse of evolution to participate. We are not doing this alone. And as the resonance and empathy builds, we feel as we are feeling on this phone an impulse that may not yet have a name. That may not yet have an obvious goal, but its rising within us. Our new nervous system is turning on and if we take the image of ourselves as a planetary baby, FaceBook and Twitter have just turned on." ~

The second audio is Craig Hamilton's "Awakening to the Call of The Cosmos"
To access this 1½ HOUR lecture, you need to sign in @ with your name and e-mail address. They'll send you a link to download the recording. (If not you can dowload it here )
Something new is stirring in our midst. Each day, more and more of us are awakening to a calling to participate in the “great work” of consciously evolving ourselves and our world.
If you’re feeling this evolutionary call, you’ve probably taken to heart Einstein’s statement that we can’t solve our problems from the same level of consciousness that created them.
You probably also recognize that it’s not enough to simply “visualize world peace” or wait for the end of the Mayan calendar to usher in a new age.
You’ve realized that for the world to change in a meaningful way, human beings are going to have to evolve beyond the primitive, ego-driven patterns that continue to hold us back from our potential. And that, as with any meaningful change, a group of pioneers are needed to lead the way.
A new spiritual impulse is arising, compelling us to transform ourselves not merely for our own happiness, but in order to serve the greatest calling there is—the further evolution of life, humanity, and consciousness itself—and the creation of a more enlightened future.

Enjoy! I know I will!

( I received an email this morning I'd like to share with all men and women here )
Are you ready to be a 21st Century man (or empower the men in your life to be one)?

We're very excited to share that more than 75 remarkable global leaders such as Robert Bly, Jack Canfield, Neale Donald Walsch and Sam Keen are coming together for an unprecedented and historic Ultimate Men's Summit to chart the path forward into a new kind of masculinity - all for free.
At The Shift Network, we have offered many women's programs and now it's time to empower men to step up into our noblest, highest role for the years ahead.

As men, we are waking up to our true gifts - and stewarding the emergence of a new era. We're evolving a new form of masculinity - one infused with integrity, authenticity, generosity and virtue. And we're living more purposefully and finding ways to serve a cause greater than ourselves.

It's not an easy path. We're learning as we go - transforming our past, exploring our inner truths and expressing our strengths in new ways. We're learning to lead boldly without dominating, feel fully and freely, and use our power to protect instead of destroy. And we have further to go - both for the sake of our liberation and the world's.

That's why we are thrilled to invite you to attend the Ultimate Men's Summit - a free 10-day teleconference, June 10-19. We'll be hosting this historic virtual gathering of teachers, authors and elders who will offer their hard-earned, no-holds-barred wisdom about manhood, masculinity and personal development.

Click here to sign up now for this FREE virtual event - the largest men's summit ever.

You'll also learn from inspiring and transformational trailblazers like Gary Zukav, Dan Millman, Hal Stone, Andrew Harvey, John Perkins, Claudio Naranjo and Gay Hendricks (plus a few great women such as Riane Eisler).

We hope you'll join us for the Ultimate Men's Summit. It's a fantastic opportunity for you to take part in accelerating the transformation of men into a new era, which will also help you achieve the ultimate version of yourself - successful, fulfilled, generous, awake and strong.

Of course, the Summit is open to women as well, who are warmly welcome to join us and learn more about 21st Century Masculinity. It's clear we need to work together with women, hand in hand, to create a new Earth.

Each speaker will offer their deepest insights about what it takes to mature and grow as a man, and they'll give you specific practices you can use to move your life forward. They are making it very practical and real - not just talking heads - but tools to accelerate your growth, evolution and expression as a man in the world.

The link again to register is:

Please do share this with your friends and allies as well. We look forward to seeing you at the Ultimate Men's Summit!

In spirit, Stephen Dinan, Founder, The Shift Network & Lion Goodman, Director of Men's Programs for The Shift Network

Ancient Wisdom
Break is over! I have opened Free Tarot Readings again. :) With a new little line at the near top of the page.

"When it comes to payment, I give my reading for free, and remind my querent (one who asks the question) that whatever they can do, are good at, I gladly accept something as a trade, be it CDs, channellings, attunement, art, healing, love. :)  "

Example of Past, Present, Future Reading
This comes due to the few people who have send me CDs and attunements as they wanted to thank me for the readings - and as I am all for trade instead of putting monetary label on creativity and quidance I think this is a wonderful way to be in a society with each other. And also due to few emails I received from people worried if I was not receiving anything hence loosing balance. Such a valid point! As I had to eventually go on a Tarot break. There is always a great value in balance.
I find myself having more energy and time again as Summer draws closer so I wanted to open my e-mail to my querants again!
Love, Light and Joy!

Interesting Interview with Max Igan on reactions we have on negative issues in the world right now.


Interesting listening. :) Remember to trust your own truth while listening. :)

Love, Light and Joy!


Are you interested in the Esoteric and Magical history of the Finns?
The Vikings, according to Viking Sagas, also made some raids into Tavastia. Here is an account of Olav the Holy raiding the coast. This may be either in Tavastian or "Finnish" territory:

"Then he (Olav) sailed to Finland, landed and pillaged there, but all of the locals escaped into the forests and took all their possessions with them away from the area/region. The king ventured far inland and through some woods; there were valley regions called Herdalarna. They took some property, but no men (Slaves? Prisoners?). When evening drew near, the King began his way back to his ships. But when they returned to the woods, they were confronted by men from all sides, and harrassed and shot at fiercely. The King told his men to take cover/protect themselves. But before they could get out of the woods, he had lost many men and several were wounded. He arrived at the ships in the evening. In the night, the Finns created a great storm with their witch-craft. But the king ordered to lift up the anchor and raise the sails, and they travelled along the coast during the night. The King's good luck was then, like so often, more effective than the witch-craft of the Finns. They managed to sail along the coast of Balegard and then out to sea. But a band of Finnish warriors followed them on land as the king sailed along the coast." ~
The Finns have been known for their ability to raise fog, stop blood flow in wounds and singing people to sleep.
With magical time in mind you might want to check out this book: The Magic Songs of the Finns.
"Since the time immemorial the Finns have used incantations, or Magic Songs. It’s unknown when or how this tradition of magic first came to be, but already in pre-historical times they were widely used in all areas of life. The 639 spells and charms contained in this book were collected in the 19th century from the rural areas of Finland and Karelia, shortly after which this old esoteric tradition became extinct. They were first published in year 1880, and translated into English in 1896 as a part of larger folkloristic study, but have never before been published as an independent work."

History of Education, Social Engineering & Indoctrination in the School System
John Taylor Gatto - May 19, 2011

John Taylor Gatto was born in Monongahela, Pennsylvania. He attended public schools and a private Catholic boarding. As a boy he held many jobs from sweeping his grandpa's printing office to selling comic books. Later, he did undergraduate work at Cornell, the University of Pittsburgh, and Columbia and then served in the U.S. Army medical corps.
