The US-led coalition’s bombing of Syria will not stop the spread of terrorism and will inevitably lead to an escalating cycle of violence in the region, Brian Becker of the Act Now to Stop War and End Racism (ANSWER) coalition, told RT.
RT:The UN resolution is binding and will call on nations to adopt new laws and regulations. What could those be?
Brian Becker: In the case of the US, it has been arresting people for the last 15 years on the basis that they were somehow connected to foreign terrorist operations. Many of them were just set up by the FBI so that they could have big press conferences. I think the resolution actually will be quite meaningless – at least in terms of understanding what the cause of the rise of Islamic extremism or the so-called Islamic State in Syria is. That is the consequence not really of foreign fighters flowing into Syria so much, even though that is happening, the real reason is that Iraq has been fractured and Syria has been fractured and Libya has been fractured as a matter of US foreign policy, a deliberately calculated military policy that created the space for this. And this will only escalate the cycle of violence, with the US now starting to say that they have the right to bomb Syria over and over again for the matter of years. That will not stop the increase of terrorism that will lead to an escalating cycle of violence. That is inevitable. Continue reading . . .
“. . . today’s energy also carries a signature of consecration. The Sabian symbol of the degree of the Sun is “a priest performing a marriage ceremony.” Be wise to what you are committing or vowing. Don’t sacrifice yourself for another and don’t force things.” L Walker
Gibbous Moon in Sagittarius/Capricorn: trust ~ Ruling Mahavidya: Dhumavati (The Goddess of Death) and Kali (The Destroyer)
Skill: stunt overreaction and channel anger productively
Negative Imprint: jealousy, bondage, taking on too much, injustice, rigidity
Positive Imprint: loyalty, playfulness, balance, creativity (especially with writing and music), change to the status quo
This is quite a day, guys. In fact, until the Full Moon on the 12th, the skills of wise owls across the world are needed. The matrix is pushing an emotional maelstrom with Mars’ opposition to the Eris Point and now Mars’ opposition to Eris itself.
The archetypal energy of these battle forces, the twins Mars (Aries) and Eris, tears through things. It prompts a great deal of anger and conflict, even as it tries to work the high end of the energy. On the macro or collective level, the energy produces revelation of truth and social change. On the micro or individual level, the truth about ourselves, others, and our lives in general is shown. Mars and Eris blaze through on their horses, tearing back the veils.
Eris also tends to throw “apples of discord.” In the story, the Trojan War is incited by Eris after she crashes the gods’ party and throws the Apple of Discord. The Apple of Discord is labeled “To the fairest” – which is the same thing as “Mirror, mirror on the wall, who is fairest of them all?” A fight breaks out and the gods use humanity to solve the matter.

“Though everyone is experiencing this, if you have a planet located at 13-19 degrees of Aries, Cancer, Libra, or Capricorn, you are undergoing extreme “faceting.” The energy is “upgrading” all of us, but some are destined for massive transformation at this point in time.” ~L Walker
Balsamic Moon in Gemini: release ~ Ruling Mahavidya: Bagalamukhi (The Paralyzer, The Storm-Calmer)
Skill: be like the wise old owl in the tree
Negative Imprint: conflict, aggression, pushiness
Positive Imprint: cooperation, personal discovery
The intense energy being distributed by Mars moving into opposition with Uranus continues today. As discussed, things are cracking up, loosening up, and breaking apart. Yesterday’s 7.9 magnitude earthquake off Alaska and the 6.9 off New Zealand evidence this. Uranus is a powerful force.
Uranus moved into Aries, the sign in which it is currently transiting, on March 11, 2011, when the massive 9.1 earthquake was recorded in Japan.
If the energy can do this to the planet, imagine what it is doing to us!
Uranus is not only a powerful force, but it is a force for change. It brings sudden, unexpected, dramatic changes. It is like lightning. Mars’ influence adds impulsive, fiery, and aggressive elements. Continue reading →
Oracle Report Disseminating Moon in Aquarius: opening, sharing, communication ~ Ruling Mahavidya: Bhuvaneshvari (The World Nurse) and Tara (The Rescuer)
Skill: honey bee (find the sweetness in life)
Negative Imprint: putting up barriers
Positive Imprint: opening to bounty
The energetic slingshot of Mars’ release back to forward motion puts us in new territory today. No matter where we find ourselves mentally, emotionally, or physically, we will practice the shamanic skill of being like the honey bee and finding the sweetness of life.
More than likely, the shamanic skill of being like a honey bee will require hardy spiritual warriors since today is also a Black Moon Day. The Moon remains in Aquarius, affecting the Black Moon in Leo. Our shadow sides continue to present themselves (and this means other people’s shadow sides present themselves, too). Black Moon days can feel dark and heavy, but we know that they are about regeneration and rebirth. We remember that we grow stronger from the cycles of the Black Moon. We seek the light and find it all around us in nature.
The energy challenges us not to put up barriers or shut down, especially if we are reeling from changes that are happening in our lives. If we are not letting go of the past, it makes today harder.
Reunions are trying to occur. This includes all kinds of reunions between people, places, and things. We have the vantage point of seeing these things in a new way. Unusual clarity is provided. Remember that the whole time Mars has been retrograde we have had the opportunity to see where we put our energy, time, and resources and the ways we want to change this so that it is more sustainable and nurturing. We are often tested with this when a planet stations direct. Stand up or show up for yourself. Continue reading →
OracleReport Disseminating Moon in Aquarius: communication, messages
Skill: be like the wise old owl in the tree who safely observes (go inside yourself and observe)
Negative Imprint: ego-centricity, strutting, being “all over the place”
Positive Imprint: grace, integrity, maintaining center
FROM WISE OWL EILEEN
After moving retrograde (backward in the sky) since March 2, Mars finally moves direct (forward in the sky) overnight tonight. But today, Mars is virtually at a standstill, and the build-up of its energy brings pressure. Under this influence, we find ourselves at a standstill as well.
This brings a feeling that we are “on hold” or at a stop. Perhaps you find yourself at a crossroad with something today. This is Mars’ final push to help us see where we feed energy to situations that feel hopeless, lost, or stone cold. The question to ask is if the situation provides nourishment for you. If you do not know, energies are in place to help you understand or get the message today.
Additionally, today and tomorrow are “Black Moon days.” Everyone’s core fear is triggered on these days, but right now Leos and Aquarians and those with the Black Moon in Leo or Aquarius are triggered the most. Black Moon days are an opportunity for tremendous personal growth and evolution. They provide us with an opportunity to make friends with our shadow side. For example, if you have the Black Moon in Pisces, circumstances develop to help you heal your trust issues. Those with the Black Moon in Gemini, for example, will face the possibility of rejection or disapproval. How we handle these situations shows how well we have integrated our shadow side.

Alright. This week I want to bring up Mars going direct in Libra which happens on Monday. There is still quite a bit of things sort of flushing out in terms of masculine energies, aggressive behaviors, war-like behavior or literally war, and I’ll say also just a natural falling away of things that aren’t working.
Sorry the voice is coming and going here. Mostly allergies, which is somehow affecting everyone in the area.
So with your Mars energies, what you want to do is balance it out by bringing in more feminine, more Divine Love, radiating Love. Even if you need to use an assertive tone, add Love to it. Make Love the predominant vibration.
And I think for a lot of people, you could use the Second Ray which is Love Wisdom. It brings the head and the heart together a little more completely. So you can pull upon that beautiful blue Second Ray energy and literally see your head so to speak or your mind, the brain, sort of sinking down the body and resting in the heart so you’re kind of coming from the heart first, mind second.
Alright Dear Ones. As always, thank you and my love to you.
Gordon Gekko had it right: Greed is good. So are procrastination and jealousy and gluttony, and every other negative trait you’ve been trying (and failing) to eliminate. How can that be?
Greed is just a variation of the natural urge for abundance and well-being. Though making a killing on Wall St. at others’ expense may not be the highest expression of this urge, look at it this way: Mother Teresa was greedy – she had an unquenchable thirst for serving the poor. Nelson Mandela was greedy to free his people. Both were intently focused on their desire, and look at all they accomplished!
In a recent Facebook post, Dr. Christiane Northrup suggested we write down all the things we’re unhappy about in ourselves, and bless them each day. Loving acceptance, she claims, is the only way to attain peace and make improvements. Try this exercise – it’s very powerful!
The upcoming Wesak Full Moon (May 14, 12:16 p.m. PDT), considered by many the most powerful of the year, is all about giving and receiving blessings. Celebrating the Buddha’s birth, enlightenment and death, this Full Moon catalyzes the Taurus-Scorpio axis of manifestation and magic, opening a portal by which to immerse yourself in a downpour of divine energy that purifies your body and soul. It’s also a time to bless Mother Earth and ask for her help in magnifying prosperity and well-being. Continue reading →
