Planets and The Zodiac

Planets and the Zodiac

Athene Raefiel

Important note: I am not an Astrologer
It is very important to take interest in, and learn about, the solar system and the Universe as a whole. Of course Astronomers and Astrologers have been saying this forever and a day, but it all seems so complex sometimes. I have decided to try and make it a bit easier for you to understand the planets movements in our Solar system as it moves through the twelve signs of the zodiac.

The twelve signs of the Zodiac are pretty familiar to everyone, yet to be able to identify their formations in the sky is quite different from knowing their names. There are actually 88 constellations which can be divided into eight constellation families, (See footnote: See Menzel, “A field Guide to the Stars and Planets”). The Ancient Greeks used to assign their Gods to certain figures in the sky. Because of their Northern location, they gave names only to those regions visible from their countries.

The current zodiac is based on twelve constellations in the sky mostly named by the Greeks. Stories of how these constellations were named are learned through Greek Mythology. The constellations of the zodiac we know nowadays reach back to the days of the Babylonians and Chaldeans, 2000 to 3000 years ago. Back then the sun passes through twelve constellations we still assign to the zodiac. But since those times, there have been several changes to the assignment of the stars.

Everything in Astrology and Astronomy is based on Arcs and Degrees. An Arc is a breakdown of minutes and seconds of Degrees that gives an Angular separation. As we look at the sky it appears to be round, just as do the Earth and the Planets therein. For this reason Arcs and Degrees are the main measurement used to assure proper Declination and Ascension.

When we have a planetary alignment it can occur in many different configurations but to simplify for you, many planets line up at close Degrees within the same sign or Constellation where they are importantly aspected to one another, as well as planets residing in other signs. These aspects are of particular importance because of the effects they present. When this occurs these existing planets affect the Natal chart of each individual as well as that of each planet and sphere. It is much like taking many different energetic frequencies and jamming them all together to see how they affect the whole. These planetary alignments sometimes wreak havoc on our civilization and planet as a whole as their resonation can be like nails on the chalkboard. These energies often times, create very intense frequencies making it harder to decipher or disseminate what we feel and think.

It is as if musicians in a symphony are all warming up at the same time and none is yet playing together to create harmony; searching to find a key to play in that will blend well with the other notes. This is how these planetary frequencies and energies sometimes affect us individually as well as collectively.

If you are a sensitive during these experiences you may feel totally out of sync. Depending of the placement of the Planets and their proximities in your Natal Chart, you could be affected by racing thoughts, emotional instability, physical illness and bouts of indecisiveness. Feeling ungrounded and out of body is common during such fluctuations and with the polarities currently shifting; it seems as if time has sped up immensely. Breathing correctly can be challenging as well.

To bring a bit more clarity I will share the number of years various planets in our Solar system take to make their revolution. This helps us understand how each planet moves as well as how often they each might be in the same sign together.

The Earth’s cycle around the sun is 365 days or one solar year. Our Moon revolves around the Earth approximately every 27 days.

A strange thing is that if we lived on the Moon and thought of days and years the same way we do on Earth, a day AND a year would be the same length! Since the rotation and revolution times are the same, the length of a day and the length of a year are identical. All the other planets revolve around the Sun. Venus spends 225 days moving around the Sun, Mercury 65.6 days, Mars 687 Days, Jupiter 11.8 Years, Saturn 29.5 years, Uranus 84 years, Neptune 165 years, Pluto 247.7 years. This information helps you do the math to understand just how often these planets touch each other’s elliptical orbits.

Since I am not an Astrologer I can only share a variety of information to help you to see that some planets move around the Sun through our Solar system. These in turn then moves through the twelve sign of the Zodiac making changes to the Earth as well as one another causing a variety of effects on everything. The slower moving planets will remain in one sign long enough for the faster moving planets to catch up and move around again and again; causing a variety of elliptical orbits that create different frequencies.

What does all of this have to do with you? Well depending on where the placement of the planets and constellations were in the sky at the time of your birth, you can determine how each of these bodies and energies affects you, not only on your Solar Return or birthdate, but also every other day of life that they move through the Zodiac. Due to not just the Revolution of the planets but the Rotation as well, it is as if we are in the center of an awesome cycling process that has some energies moving clockwise, others semi clockwise, and still others appear to move counter clockwise.

Each Planet, each Constellation has a variety of frequencies that is emitted continually. In order to understand the energy of these things it is important to meditate upon them but also to read and study. Looking to discover how they receive the names that they have and understanding that each planet has its own Master Teacher to work with will help. ( Note: I do not know the exact name of the Master Teachers for Each Planet but using their individual names posed by the Greeks will work when meditating upon them; i.e. Jupiter, Mars, Pluto etc.)

Tuning in and learning about the harmonics of the Universe is important. It helps to know what energies and frequencies are at play on a grand scale as well as individually. Why does this or that feel this way currently and how is it affecting the planet, the masses and myself?

Of course we try to downplay the effects of the planets and Constellations because we want to believe that we have some kind of power to control the energies we experience daily. This is not helpful in the long run; if we do not keep abreast of the planetary influences we do not know how to keep ourselves healthy physically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually. In learning and studying, I have discovered that we must educate ourselves about all things that are a mystery to us in order to advance and grow.

Too often we “think”, instead of understanding, we choose instead of discovering and we try to sidestep the most important elements of learning. It can seem so complicated to learn with the vast perception and awareness involved yet, looking at the stars is like looking a map that has been around since time immemorial. The sky as guided civilizations for as long as they have been here.

When you learn what sign you were born under, you begin to show an interest in the documented traits it represents. As you explore, you may find many elements in one Sun Sign that have a variety of traits you can relate to. It is not just your Sun sign that makes up the map of influences that is you but your entire Astrological Natal Chart .It need not be astronomically accurate but it has its virtues, which have been explored and nurtured over many years.

Discovery is the element of life that keeps us exploring and searching. We are never “there” but always learning and advancing. Astrology and Astronomy never cease to bring in new insights and great revelation. These areas of study can prove invaluable.

Mercury

Named for the winged Roman God of Travel. ( The God of communication)
Venus

Roman name for the Goddess of Love. ( Also known as our sister Planet.)>
Mars

Named by the Romans for their God of was because of its red color. (Also known as the planet of war)
Jupiter

This large and Massive planet was named Zeus by the Greeks and Jupiter by the Romans. (Jupiter is said to bring fairness and balance to many situations. Jupiter’s influence has changed over the years since it was hit hard by and asteroid.)
The Moon

The name is of Anglo- Saxon derivation. (My perception of the Moon is Female and often the Mother, since she rules the tides of the Water and Emotions on the planet)
Earth

The name comes from the Indo-European bas ‘er’, which produced the Germanic noun ‘ertho’.
Saturn

Saturn was the Roman name for the Greek Cronos, ( Also known as Kronos, father time)( Saturn is the planet of Order and Organization, It has to do with the Military as well as learning to progress with order)
Uranus

Named for the Greek god of sky.( Uranus is known to be a higher Octave of Saturn. Uranus is a major planet of expansion as well as spiritual enlightenment.)
Neptune

A blue planet, named for the Roman god of the sea.( I have tuned into King Neptune and discovered he is one of my many Fathers. His reign of the sea includes the mermaids, Dolphins and all other Sea Life.)
Pluto

The outermost planet in our solar system was named after the Roman God of the underworld. (Supposedly demoted from being a planet, Pluto is very influential in everything that occurs on this planet. Pluto is the planet of transformation and has a great effect in the Solar system as a whole. We cannot downplay the effects of this Body as it has a major influence in everything.)
It is important to also read about the Asteroids that now have an effect within our Solar System. Their configurations also represent added influences that we need to take into account; Chiron is very prominent currently and has a great influence that we need to look at.

As we progress into this awesome time of advancement it is time to discover anew who and what you represent. We as the guardians of this new age hope that you will open to the vast peace in the current energies. There has been so much transition and change that many are yet assimilating these changes as they advance to the next level of perception. It can be hard to find center and balance when everything around you is swirling. These new energies are powerful and pervasive.

Each of you is held in the greatest esteem by the Hierarchy of Love and abundance. Each of you is a teacher and helper as well as a great transformer of the previous misconception that has been the true edict of man. As you have each discovered various levels of truth and insight in the cosmic mysteries of life, too you have helped to change the perception of the world.

This is our resolution to you. All of you who choose to listen to the magnificent language of the Universe and the Hierarchy shall find themselves inundated with the understanding of the highest potential. Expansion is unlimited and you can use your awareness of vibrations to grow tremendously. Now is the time to awaken to the understanding that all are one.

Though many of you have heard and understand that this planet was colonized, still it is a fact that now is the time to unite and clear the energy and debris that hold human beings back. Though you may be from different Star Systems you must acknowledge that you all have the same opportunities to work and advance together. Earth beings are communities of expression and as they share those expressions they grow and produce new fruit.

The political climate of the United States and other countries is currently undergoing a major transition. This has been a long time in coming. Much like the Roman Empire, the Empires of your era must also transform themselves before they fall. This is due to the fact that they must see and adhere to what is being presented to them on a large scale. (Global Warming, Warring, Economic woes).

There is a whole in the Physical that should not be denied. All is not perfect in the Universe; even though the greater whole holds a variety of heavens and assignments as does that of Earth and her inhabitants. You have each heard before that you are a Universe unto yourselves. This being true, to connect with all other life is surely the whole that you seek.

It is time to take off the illusion of whatever you have heralded as truth and reality; it is time to create anew. As the harbingers of truth and light, it is your god given responsibility to assist in the opening of an era that will long affect the peoples of the world. Coming into this new Era is a magical and blessed an occurrence, greater than anything you have imagined. You are the bringers of light and new realities that will shine brightly into the future.

Yesterday is gone, and even as you try to remember what purpose it served or of what it meant, you find yourself moving on. New territories and directions call to you as well as the hallowed teachings of old that echo their greatest teachings. All will make sense as it falls together to present itself in the new light brimming quickly onto your consciousness now.

Imagine what life would be like without these awesome changes and transitions. You have all had your turn at experiencing a life that doesn’t move or moves too slowly. That’s right, currently this massive movement of energy is a breath of fresh air. Imagine now the greatest of beauty, awareness and centered life possible, and hold that energy. Changes, transition and love these are all the things that have been put into motion and continue to find their way into the mainstream of everyday life.

No longer do people go without praying and asking for the assistance of the Higher Realms. No longer does one expect life to encompass the Vibration of loneliness and boredom. It is a major time of thought and action. Every thought holds energy and vibration. Every thought has power.

What we are seeing now is a transition that we never expected to occur and come to fruition. Those who have been entirely close to the whole element of truth and light are now questioning those beliefs and searching for the reality of truth. Truth of course is relative, yet the depths that it reaches are profound. What truth is and how it develops and changes is a fast moving project for many upon your planet. Truth like the vastness of eternity is forever in motion.
Let us now move into the future.

2011 has heralded a time that will be the core change of the future of Governments and peoples of your planet as a whole. More advancement in the spiritual revolution and evolutionary path will occur in this year of 2011 than in any other recorded to date. The whole understanding of food stuffs and the resources that keep your world operating and moving will take on a new face as well many people opening to the realization that they can think for themselves.

The Light and the Dark exist because of one another. One cannot exist without the other. The true light of life is beyond this symbol; all life permeates from this higher light and truth as it reflects the views of the Universes. Because you exist in a human form you are subject to the laws of light and dark perception, awareness and action. In order to continue to move beyond this until you must continually expand your consciousness and advance to other planes and realms of experience.

This year of 2011 has allowed many of you to ascertain that you are more than body. Mind body, soul Spirit, all must work together as a unit for the true Divine expression of being to take precedence. You have discovered your true power of being in many dimensions and frequencies of awareness. Because of this you have taken charge and responsibility of your own lives and destiny. Perhaps this has helped you to better understand how you too are to ascend the lower planes of being and thought.

Preparing for 2012 has already occurred for all of you, as this particular time (2012) is simply a symbol of time that will determine the destiny of what humans now refer to as mankind. Since so many realities are available for humans to currently tap into, there will be a powerful need for “choice and free will”. The consciousness of the many as well as the Planet and her inhabitants, be they Animal, mineral, aquatic or otherwise has always been what decides the progression of the future.

These times of great assessment and transition only occur rarely for your species. We suggest you pay specific attention to your thoughts, feeling and decisions from here on out. Power can be a pitfall when the human desire gets in the way. Though the ancient teachings have brought forth the awareness that wealth and money is not necessarily the same thing, still many of you would choose money and possessions over the good of the whole. This is understandable as you have needs and survival. Yet the true wealth of an individual is based on their works and what they have given to the world as a whole. Money on the other hand is what is accumulated through your deeds to protect your way of life and lifestyle; it does not necessarily give you fulfillment in the higher realms of awareness and enlightenment.

Choose wisely light beings, as the future is in your hands. The truths that you have been taught have not floundered but sometimes the need to adhere to them has. Yours is a complex life and requires complex decisions, this does not mean the simplest of tasks cannot be awarded or deemed important. You have the future in your hands now and you will be the decisive energy that moves your planet and species forward.
Questions you have been asking. Will there be a third world war?

Answer: You are already in one.

Will we ascend to another plane of existence and live in peace and harmony forever?

Answer: You already are there.
When can we plan on an adjustment to the Energy that allows us to feel grounded and at peace?

Answer: Within the next ten years.
What does 2013 and beyond portend for all of us?

Answer: Decisively speaking you are not all the same nor will you all enter a state of Nirvana that circumvents the actions of others upon your planet. Remember the term Soul Evolution as it will have more meaning in the future than it has ever had before. Each of you is a whole unto yourself and the more who recognize and develop into this reality the more hope of positive and productive survival you will find.
There indeed will be a 2013 and beyond, but as many inspired writers have expressed; it is still within your conception of reality to determine.

Never in the History of Mankind have you been engaged in such a limitless experience of creating. Take your power and your vision very seriously.
What can I hope to learn in 2013 and thereafter?

Answer: Human beings are always concerned with the future, it is your nature. You will soon discover how much of a double edged sword your current technology holds. This massive new means of communication and information sometimes creates many illusions that you will have to decipher. Though technology allows a great sense of independence it has also creates an interdependence that keeps many under the radar of understanding and learning about the true nature of life.

Dependence upon electricity as well as dependence on where to find information has and will indeed become more influential through your Internet. The information of the Soul is much like this vast network as you continue to tap into the collective consciousness. Though access to information seems to be at your fingertips, the power of meditation is far beyond anything man can learn from a machine.

History cannot be forgotten but it can be rewritten. The past has always been the prelude to the future. Learning from past experiences is what is deemed necessary to change the future; so many still live in past relationships and realities to life, while others are quantum jumping into future realities. All of this is going on through multiple planes of awareness and existence.
There will be a duality that we perceive will become life in your plane of existence after 2013. This duality will be based on the premise that life evolves and there is always more to learn and experience; the other premise is that humans are doomed to continually repeat history. Change is the only constant in the Universe. Therefore understanding how change can make life better and more progressive is key to evolution.

So long as the polarities exist so shall there be a number of dualities that play out within the human planes of consciousness.
Predictions from The Arcturians: In the future there will be Electric cars as well as alternative fuels that will help heal and repair the ozone as well as the atmosphere of air that you breathe.
There will be major Diplomatic Forces put together by the advanced minds of not only science and governments but also dignitaries of the “Life Experience” to consult with others on plans of development and change not only to the Infrastructure of Countries but also the habits of learning of how to expand and heighten the children of this New Age.
As quickly as the destruction of Cultures has expanded, too that quickly will it learn to repair itself, as humankind begins to realize that you all subsist together.
The young indigos of today will begin taking their places in Society on a grand scale in the next 5 to ten years. They will have a much different viewpoint as to what is relevant and important than any could have imagined. They will possess not only the will to succeed and progress but also the understanding and compassion necessary to bring life forward in an unconventional but healthy manner.
The Young Crystalline children have come to assist and make sure that the Arts as well as Science of the planet and the past are revived and relegated to the true areas of power that they need to subsist within. These children have full memory of former incarnations and they truly love to share and educate.
To our beloved Light workers of today, we say: You have laid the foundation and groundwork for New Realities to come forward and exist in planes of existence that were stifled and losing momentum. You have with your steadfastness and honor stood true within the changes and held on to the truths that have sustained great substance throughout the ages.

Though you have been pulled by competiveness at times, you still came back to yourself and honored the tradition of Light that you discovered as your true path of light.

You are to be commended for the fight and essence of Light that you have presented to all future generations. Your work has laid out the ground rules for the future and this will be seen by all before 2020.
We are blessed to be part of your experience and awareness this lifetime.

We are the Arcturians

2012 Predictions

Predictions for 2012 and beyond

Published December 2011 in The Sedona Journal

By Athene Raefiel and “The Spiritual Councils of Light”

Open yourselves to the Light.

The time of transformation is upon the Planet and her peoples.

What is coming up is nothing less exhilarating than what has already shown itself to be the new order and flow of time and energy.

What will 2012 bring?

Governments all over the world will be going through a re-alignment of what Government means.
1. In the United States: Your President Barack Obama will have to fight hard to hold onto his Presidency and will. It will be a struggle and there will be a race like none other in the History of the United States, but the altruism of this President will sustain another four years. US forces will have to stay in Afghanistan well beyond the deadline hoped for. Until at least 2014.
2. In Libya, there will be a period of descent by more than one faction of the peoples, yet in the interim they will find a Governing Body. Much like the situation in Iraq it will take time for the many diversified beings of the culture to determine how to work together and bring democracy. This will begin in 2012 and continue until 2013. In the year 2014 there will a new better established Governing System that will allow a new healing process to take place.
Libya’s people are tired of fighting and being poor, they seek the same opportunities as the rest of developed nations. 3. Japans governing bodies will find themselves in the worst upheaval they have experienced since Hiroshima. Since they believed nothing could compare with the devastation of that time, they have discovered that Nature is a bold taskmaster. Unfortunately since they are an Island they are in a geographical position to be hit by the Oceanic changes on all coastlines. Their very survival will depend on their technological advances and their co-operation with other nations.
4. Africa: One of the oldest continents on Earth, once again will become a larger than life focus for the rest of the world’s peoples. Everyone has been so busy trying to figure out how to hold onto their money and means that they have deserted the greatest humanitarian crises your planet is experiencing.

The Genocide and starvation as well as the animal population of Africa (Along with Insect and mineral) are primary to the workings of the entire world of land mass. Being one of the earliest land masses known to hold human life it is imperative to preserve what is established in the area. (Currently 78 Million malnourished beings. Not including animals)
5. China: With a population of 1.3 billion people, seeks to create another Empire just as they have in that region of the world for centuries. A communist regime, the Government believes that it can control its peoples and their thoughts. When this didn’t work they decided to program people to work continually at mind dreary jobs to accommodate their needs and families.

China is certain to re-discover itself in 2012. The power it has gained will see major losses in the World Markets and they will decide to move into new areas of industry, (just as they have always done). The exception now is, as a country they are not alone. India, Thailand, Malaysia, Indonesia, Philippines, all have opened themselves up to greater prosperity as nations and want to be free as individuals to live a life of surplus and contentment.
6. Closer to the US is Mexico. This Country is in for big challenges and changes governmentally in 2012. The people of this country want to live and feel safe in their own homes and environment. This Government has a lot of re-organizing to do to eliminate the power of the drug cartels who have recently taken over entire towns.

The Country of Mexico is an ecological wonder and needs to focus on maintaining a balanced state with Nature. Mexico, as well as Central and South America, aide the planet through their great ecological thinking and awareness. For North America it would behoove them to help these countries with sustainable products to help bring the balance back to North America that is needed for Plant, Animal, Mineral and Human Life.
7. Canada: Though this country seems far from Europe they will experience the same Governmental and Diplomatic problems this year of 2012. There seems to be a decisive energy that is bringing citizens to new heights of awareness of what they want and need from their governments, and this Country Canada, will also have to yield, with new strategies.
8. Europe will see an economic meltdown and massive government upheaval. The UK is searching for the same resolutions as the United States to its economic woes.
9. Russia will allow itself to move backwards on the Governing Scale in hopes it can once again prosper as a world leader and economy. This does not bode well for Democracy.

(Note from Athene: It is the Ecology of the Planet that nations need to be focusing on and time is short. All this Government and Economic bull will be the undoing of an entire planet if things do not swiftly move into this arena of what Earth needs in 2012.)
Earth Changes 2012:
Inner earth tectonic plates are moving rapidly. Since they are beneath the ocean floors they affect all things. When there is an earthquake under the sea then there is a disruption to the sea itself and all land masses near it.

So long as the plates are being disrupted by ecological influences so will all life on land. It is not unusual for tectonic plate movement as it is a natural process, yet to have the massive amount of movement currently occurring well into the next few years, there will be massive storm occurrences.

The ecological balance of nature has been disrupted in large part to human’s misunderstanding of its order. This has forced nature to try and re-balance as well as re-create itself.

Animals have been found to be losing their sense of direction and homing instincts. Insects are moving to areas that are warmer or cooler depending on their natural environment, and bird populations are diminishing as well as aquatic animals.

Food shortages will continue through 2012 as more genetic foods will be produced. This leads all the way back to cloning and food enhancement.

All of this also affects all types of crops, therefore clothing will be more expensive and in greater shortage as well.

Many plants are beginning to morph and not yielding the same materials in the same way they did before. This will cause a type of genetic mutation on its own. This mutation also affects the inside and outside of human bodies.

Ecologically speaking, 2012 spells disaster plus, as nature works to restore some semblance of balance to herself.
Pole Shifts:
How do the pole shifts affect the Earth and her axis?

The earth has a magnetic core that is made up of a ball of elements mostly decided by scientists to be of Iron and Nickel Alloy. The temperature is thought to be much the same as that of our Sun.

The outer core of the earth is known as the liquid core. Each of these has its own revolution of speed. The inner cores speed is believed to be 2/3 faster than the outer core.

Earth belonging to the solar system with the sun actually being the sole supplier of electricity and light upon the planet, anything to do with solar activity has a major impact on everything from weather to health of plant, animal, human etc. The sun plays a major role in what the earth does as a natural being.

The whole of 2012 predictions and the great cataclysm that will claim the destruction of life on earth has to do with the magnetic pole shifts that are already occurring. The common belief is that other civilizations that are now extinct such as the Mayan and Egyptian societies left us coded messages explaining what happened to other civilizations at the time of such pole shifts.

If and when the poles shifts happen, creating; North to South and South to North, it will first impact the core of the Earth. This will cause the core of the Earth to begin rotating in the opposite direction. This action will cause the speed of Earth’s rotation to slow but cannot, in and of itself, spin the Earth in the opposite direction. Only the core of the earth and other solar and planetary factors can do this, and only over billions of years.

The shifting of the Earth’s axis, in and by itself, will have an effect that no one can predict, but can definitely help to bring the outer core into a newness of life and growth. When the pole shifts occur and the center of the Earth begins to spin in the opposite direction the outer rotation will slow. Since the Earth has always has a wobble effect, its wobble will also be affected. When the core finds its new balance and rhythm, so will the outer core again stabilize its rotation.
Author Note: Over the past 10 years the Magnetic North Pole has shifted nearly half of the distance as that of the past 50 years.

This acceleration is what is driving many to believe that a disaster of major cataclysmic proportions will happen in 2012. It is also what it makes time feel as if it has accelerated.
Financial Markets:
In 2012 the world financial markets will continue to be unstable. Just as we have said many times before, the monetary system of your world needs to be changed. The system of markets was a good idea, yet it has become the ruling factor for countries all through your world. It is its own empire and runs by its own rules. It is a massive entity that operates off of the fears of others. It destroys lives and hope, with the promise of wealth. It has taken the power away from the common individual.
Again we will re-iterate our perception of what life on your earth needs to be.
Bring back a balance with the natural order of life.
Stay as centered in the true Light of Love as possible.
Surrender to your soul and spirit essence.
Teach others the truth of the whole being.
Radiate the loving light of light within that you are.
Meditate on being free and what that actually is.
Continually commune with all the Higher Realms of Love and Light.
Confront your fears and move through them.
May you each find the true joy of Love within your being and may you live the true essence of light you were designed to be.

Anchoring Light

Anchoring Light

Setting Space and Anchoring of Light
By: Athene Raefiel

When we want to understand the energy self, and the energy beings we call spirit guides, we need to practice putting ourselves in a purified sacred energy space. This is what I call setting the space. Needing to keep our energy fields clear is important for us to feel safe and also be in tune with our intuition and divine counterpart.

To begin, it is good to smudge your sacred space with some white sage or a stick of incense. When you are creating a sacred space within which to meditate, relax or even just contemplate, you will want to make it feel sacred and personal. Some people like to light candles seeing them as representing the flame or light of life within that they, and all other life is. Other spiritual tools you may want to use to set your spiritual space are rocks and crystals, statues and altars, special books and divination cards, runes and pendulums.

Don’t forget a notebook and pen, you never know what you may want to write down.

Doing this kind of exercise puts you in the right mood and helps you set your intent for the desired results.

When it is time to sit down and anchor the Light, Simply take some very deep breaths and relax your body, your mind and emotions.
Then State:
I call to the power of light that I am.

I call to my angels and spirit guides of light.

I call to my soul and spirit self.

I call to all those that assist, guide, guard and protect me.

I ask that they align their energies in and around me so that I may feel and experience my connection to the holy light within that I am.
Again take a few deep breaths and state:
I am a child of light and love.

I am loving light.

I am goodness and beauty.

I am the reflection of the holy light within.
Now simply visualize the sun shining directly over your head as you feel the warmth of the rays coming down around you. Fill your entire being and space with this light.

Now feel as if there are roots coming out through the bottom of your feet and let them move deeply into the earth. Now begin feeling the roots being filled with the nutrients from the earth.
Next:
Let a temple of light be created around you and bathe yourself in this light. Merge with the light, become one with it and experience the colors within the light as fully as possible.

Become the different colors you see, one at a time; the blue, the red, the pink, the emerald, the white, the gold and purple. Now let all the colors just simply move through you. See yourself as this wonderful clear crystal emanating all these beautiful colors.

Realize how awesome it feels to be able to be these beautiful energies, sit within them and notice how angelic you feel.

Become a beam of light, expand yourself out in every different direction imaginable and allow yourself to come back to the outside world.

Now sit quietly for a few minutes while you assimilate the experience.

Now that you are centered within your light you may want to write down what you are feeling. You may want to use your tools of divination and see how clear your intuition has become. Or you may simply want to bask in the energy experience.

This is an exercise that should be done as often as possible for those wanting to learn to go within and connect to your spirit essence.

As lightworkers it is our calling to anchor the Universal light into our lives daily. The universe asks nothing of us but to become attuned to ourselves as light beings and assist them in the creation of light within the physical plane of existence. This we do by anchoring light.

Great transformational energies and much personal activation is being experienced by all since The Harmonic Convergence in 1987 and the Harmonic Concordance in November 2003. Many new gateways of energy opened up to assist the lightworkers on Earth to process through past soul memories and open themselves to a greater height of awareness and service not only to the Universe but to themselves.

Many more lightworkers are taking their place in the cosmic scheme of things and assisting in the spiritual awakening of the sleepers. As wars rage in many parts of the world the lightworkers understand that new life is always born from the chaos.

Although there is a long way to go before peace will become an everyday reality, the individuals now awakened will take their place as the New World leaders by 2012.

Two comets seen from Earth visit our space between the April 18, 2004, Solar Eclipse in the astrological sign of Aries the Ram and May 4, 2004 Lunar Eclipse in the sign of Scorpio. These two Comets will never be seen from Earth Again. They will not be visible at the same time but one will be near Sirius in the beginning of May.

Comets have tails and move very quickly through the skies. Their energy and light effects the heavens in a manner that changes the frequencies and signals currently being emitted. The path of these comets helps us align to a more centered and continually balanced frequency of light.

The April and May 2004 set of eclipses completes the initiation of the first gateway activated and opened in November 2003, during the Harmonic Concordance. What is a gateway, how do they open and what would be the purpose?

In metaphysics when we speak of gateways, we are referring to the stargates activated by the consciousness of ourselves, the councils of light, galactic brotherhoods, and the Universal Hierarchy. These stargates are strategically aligned and activated to assist not just our planet and her beings but other planets and systems as well. By us all being a part of the same consciousness, when enough beings resonate at the same frequency another stargate is aligned and opened.

The astrological alignments of the heavenly bodies allow for the energy to be focused and aligned to assist in the breakdown of energies received so that we do not blow up our solar system and ourselves. In our arrogance, we often assume to know more about how the cosmos operates than is plausible. In the scheme of knowing all there is to know, we are still children. In reality, the stargates were operational long before our planet and star systems came to be. We are a birth of them shall we say, as is everything else around us that we can see, feel, taste or touch. All things tangible were and are born of stargates.

If we were to see a mother birthing a child, we would then see that she is the stargate opening to give birth to a new life. When we take this understanding to a different level, we understand that new life also represents consciousness and that consciousness does not contain a tangible form but an intangible one. As we enter into and experience each stargate as the expansion of consciousness it presents to us in our journey, we develop a process of steps and understanding about its operation in our physical reality self.

One cannot know that which is unknowable, one cannot attain that which is unattainable, one can only learn that for which they are ready. There is but one mystery and each of you holds it within yourself. The key to each mystery is the consciousness that you birth through each birthing stargate you enter. When we say the stargates are open, we share with you that they are now individually and collectively accessible to those who are prepared to experience them.

The more advanced souls on the planet will hold the doorways in place until all those seeking this expansion of consciousness have accomplished it. You cannot push the river of what the timing, experience, and learning are about. Surrender to the divine order of your own soul journey and ask your higher self to guide you to the appropriate teachers and measures currently best for you. Overcome your fear of change and enlightenment will occur.

The Harmonic Concordance took place November 8, 2003. At that time 17 stargates were activated for human and other life forces to utilize as expansion to new levels of spiritual awareness and consciousness. The Harmonic Concordance was interactive with the Harmonic Convergence August 17, 1987, which was the initiation into a New World order of the stars and planets. This order is one of a new spiritual opening of higher love and awareness for all the beings including those within the heavens. Since the time of Harmonic Convergence we have experienced a massive amount of change and acceleration within the cosmos and our own solar system. There has been a great many stargates and mysteries revealed to the collective since that time. Awareness and enlightenment as well as the quest for true spiritual knowledge has abounded and even been sought after by astronomers, biologists, scientists, theologians, and the wealthy.

On August 11, 1999 we experienced an astrological grand cross in the heavens. I was told by spirit at that time that we had passed a point of no return. That no longer would humanity be able to restore itself to a state in the past. The species of plant and animal would continue to disappear, as would the soil, clean air, water and precious resources. That so much devastation and damage had occurred to the planet that we would have to find another way of restoration and reconstruction. That ultimately the Divine plan was going forward and the crippled world with it.

I then had a vision of the parallel universe merging with the current universe. The parallel universe is one of balance, love harmony, kindness, joy, spirituality and cooperation. I was not sure then what this merging meant but also knew that the parallel universe may split off at a later date taking with it those who are resonating at that frequency. It’s very presence helps with the plan of assimilation, love and service to Earth Mother

As we have all seen since that date in 1999, chaos has ensued on a worldwide level for all that refuse to move forward in their life and consciousness. For the many to whom spiritual awakening and enlightenment are home, their lives and journeys have constantly opened them to abundance, revelation, intuitive guidance, love and joy. Through such spiritual experiences came the activation of 17 stargates on the Harmonic Concordance November 9, 2003.

People often choose to believe that events such as these, herald Divine and Celestial changes that will occur that very day and exact time resulting in massive immediate transformation. Humankind’s greatest downfall is still in their unrealistic expectations and need for immediate result. To look at ones life and the history of the cosmos is to become aware that all things happen in the course of time. They come to pass. Entering into one stargate of conscious awareness brings massive shifts into ones life. Enlightenment is a journey; it requires many incarnations of experience. Enlightenment must be experienced and realized for one to become illuminated. These things cannot be measured with time and space. To understand how to create though love and understanding is the quest that brings about enlightenment.

The statement, “When one is ready the teacher will appear” means to continually be preparing yourself for the next step in your evolution. Using the proper tools is how one stays prepared. Meditation, chakra alignments, prayers, invocations, trust and commitment are the tools we all adhere to. Activation and initiation are the key experiences for 2004

There was a set of Eclipses in November 2003. The full Lunar Eclipse was November 8, at 16 degrees of Taurus, the same day as the Harmonic Concordance Grand Sextile. April 19, 2004 a partial Solar Eclipse in Aries at 29 degrees connects the opening of the another stargate that was activated during the Harmonic Concordance. As the stargates open and we experience them a variety of different experiences takes place on all levels of our being. First of course is always the soul element and then comes the assimilation into the emotional, mental and physical. This is the second phase or the initiation your souls requested long before this incarnation. This gateway connects each of us into the past incarnation memories needed to recognize origin and heritage. Many past life memories and experiences surface for examination and integration. May 4, 2004 heralds the completion of the new 17 stargates activation during this Harmonic Concordance Cycle.

For many being on their path since the Harmonic Convergence or before, these experiences may sound redundant. I would ask you to remember the many layers of the onion we are to peel away before our true ascension from the physical occurs. Simply put, this time is a whole new level of the process you may already be familiar with. Those who are already familiar with the activity of stargates will achieve great strides in their illumination of their star -being self.

The Venus Transit of June 8, 2004, will open yet another stargate and then Pluto going direct in Sagittarius, August 31, 2004, the Solar Eclipse in Libra, October14, 2004 and the Lunar Eclipse in Taurus, October 28, 2004. Other openings that will occur in 2004 Neptune going Retrograde May 18, 2004 and coming direct October 24, 2004, as well as Uranus Retrograde June 6, 2004 coming direct November 12, 2004.making a total of nine for those who are ready to assimilate that degree of learning and activity.

Dreams and visions do actually manifest for those who operate within the distinct frequencies allowing for such. Manifestation of reality is tied to the Fifth Dimension of Cause and Effect. In order to consciously manifest in ones life they must first have attained and served in the experience of the Fourth Dimension which is Unconditional Love and Service. Simply because the Fifth dimensional frequencies as well as the Sixth and Seventh are now available does not mean we can skip over the necessary steps to enlightenment.

Unconditional love is the key to enlightenment, it is the foundation upon which all other steps are based and built. Unconditional love of self and others is non-judgmental, it produces a balanced state of awareness and understanding that allows you to open and align the states of consciousness you are now ready to experience and develop.
