The Jupiter Saturn Cycle and the Transition into Air — Jessica Davidson (Reblog)

Last time we looked at the ups and downs of the Great Mutation in the Jupiter Saturn cycle. We’ve reached the end of a 200 year cycle of earth conjunctions and are about to transition into an air cycle. In this post we’ll explore some of the history of these transitions to get a sense […]

Is Life ‘A Simple Game’? The Visionary B-Side from 1968 — Astrology Musings

This is one of my favourite Moody Blues’ songs, composed by keyboardist Mike Pinder in 1968, at a time when the world was convulsed with anger, riot, division, assassination and talk of revolution. *Please take note of the lyrics.

Released as a B Side to ‘Ride My See-saw’, and later covered wonderfully by The Four Tops, I think this song captures the mood of the time — but most especially and prophetically, of our own time, all these years later. It’s a call for clarity, truth and justice. But most important of all, it is visionary.

This fantastic song did not appear on one of their albums until the 1974 double disc, ‘This Is The Moody Blues’.

The Great Mutation into Air Signs

I think we are, right now, ‘on the threshold’ of a more free, social, meaningful and humanitarian age. The birth pangs are all around us, symbolised in the sky by the up and coming Great Conjunction and Great Mutation, that is Jupiter and Saturn conjoining closely at 0 degrees Aquarius on December 21 2020. This marks the first transition of this Great Conjunction fully into the Air Element (Gemini, Libra, Aquarius) since the early 13th century. This new Age of Air will last around 200 years and will transform our materialistic civilisation.

Many people thought the Sixties were such an enlightening time, that we were entering the so-called Age of Aquarius, but I contend this was wrong, spurred on by the false, illusory trends of a social revolution. Amidst all that manufactured chaos of the late Sixties, ‘A Simple Game’ appeared, a truly hopeful and visionary creation that speaks to us all the more now.

But times of transition are always difficult, fraught and often protracted. I wish Godspeed to us all on this new and hopeful journey.

Poetry: ‘King Hobo’

Photo by Ian Beckley on Pexels.com

Narcissus can’t hold a candle
to me,
at once both King of Colorado —
entitled hobo of Nowhere.
Look there! That’s my face in the sky,
cacti and mesas my sole friends,
watching while I sift through the shards
of cultures few suspect.
Though none believe me now, riches
and the future are mine;
these silent silver craft
haunting me,
they’ll be all around you soon —
I am digging their past.

Close Encounters of the Alux Kind — The Unexpected Cosmology (Reblog)

I would reckon it was probably my third or fourth time running the circuit that I heard what I thought was a child laugh. After that I would hear either one or multiple children or people laugh quite frequently on my daily runs. We had been living in Guatemala for some time by that point…
