Dear Friends,
“We live in the extended atmosphere of an active star. While sunlight enables and sustains life, the Sun's variability produces streams of high energy particles and radiation that can harm life or alter its evolution.” (
Everything is connected. If you are feeling unusually tired, buzzed, and/or like you are going to explode, it's likely due to the recent surge of solar activity. Between May 13 and May 15, there were four X-class solar flares (the strongest) and an M3-class (medium) solar flare on May 17th. More recently: "A CME (coronal mass ejection) hit Earth's magnetic field on May 18th at around 0100 UT. Although it was just a glancing blow, the impact was enough to spark a G1-class geomagnetic storm. In the United States, Northern Lights descended as far south as Pawnee Buttes, Colorado." ( Coronal mass ejections affect the Earth’s magnetosphere and are known to cause interference with radio, television, and telephone signals, anomalies in air and marine navigation instruments, and surges in power lines, as well as increases in aurora, earthquake, and volcanic activity.
These cosmic emanations have an even deeper influence and intention; they are altering our psychology and physiology, as well as the Earth’s electromagnetic grid. Humanity is being rewired; our nervous systems and DNA are changing to accomodate higher frequencies. Whatever lingers in our unconscious is being flushed up for clearing and healing. Whatever is holding us down and back is becoming intolerable. Simply your life as much as possible. You may need a lot more rest and/or a change of diet. Strange symptoms and unexplainable feelings are common signs that we are adapting to new levels of perception. This is not business as usual. Use your discernment; don’t go on automatic. These are challenging times for our bodies and psyches, as our neural pathways and consciousness make the necessary adjustments. Everyone is unique and going through this process at their own pace, so listen to your intuition and trust what feels right for you.
From Aluna Joy: “These solar pulses stretch us beyond the form we are familiar or comfortable with. This is a part of the ascension process. When we can hold no more light, we feel like we are pushed to the very edge and feel like we could explode... The magnetic pulses bring up to the surface everything that does not fit within the collective divine plan. We purge, detox, and let go and surrender from our body, mind and spirit. This purging creates more space for more light.... Let GO and let GOD emerge from inside of you... just breathe and know that we are being protected and fiercely guarded by a divine plan set into action. Our star family is watching over us, as we transform quickly into something we can't even envision now. So breathe, get yourself grounded as much as possible, and hang out with like frequency soul family.” (full article at
Several other factors combine to make the next full moon one of the most potent times of 2013, offering opportunities for big breakthroughs. May 20 Uranus and Pluto form their third of seven exact squares, which span from June 2012 through March 2015, intensifying the need to make big changes in our lives. Where are you being forced to face your worst fears, own your shadow, and reclaim your power? Where do you need to be more independent, innovative, and unconventional? As Uranus, the planet of revolution, squares Pluto, the archetype of evolution, all that is not in alignment with our ascension in consciousness is being shaken up, down, and out. Uranus and Pluto met three times in 1965–66 (16°–17° Virgo) and were within 10° of each other most of that decade, a period marked by worldwide cultural and political upheaval, as well quantum leaps in technology and space exploration. Squares signal a crossroad and crisis point, where we are called to act on the potentials and visions encoded at the conjunction; it’s time to manifest the Aquarian ideals of equality, peace, and prosperity for all.
This next full moon is also a lunar eclipse, the third of three eclipses in a row, as well as a SuperMoon, where the Moon is both at perigee (closest to the Earth) and at syzygy (in a straight line with the Sun and Earth), intensifying gravitational and electromagnetic shifts, affecting tides, tectonic plates, and our perceptions of reality. It also coincides with Wesak, a commemoration of the Buddha’s birth, enlightenment, and passing, which is celebrated by millions around the world. According to Alice Bailey: “Wesak is a time of unusual inflow of life and of spiritual stimulation, serving to vitalize the aspiration of all humanity. At the time of the Festival, through the united effort of the Christ and the Buddha working in closest cooperation, there is opened a channel of communication between humanity and deity through which an approach can be made to Those Who guide our planet, so that aspirants and disciples can contact energies not otherwise easily available."

This full moon/eclipse highlights the signs of Gemini and Sagittarius -- the power of the mind, and the power of belief. In Bruce Lipton’s groundbreaking book, The Biology of Belief, he describes how our forebrain, the center of reasoning and logic, processes information much more slowly than the reflex activity controlled by our hind brain. Our subconscious mind takes in about 20,000,000 environmental stimuli per second, but our conscious mind interprets only about 40 stimuli per second. This is the reason “the hand is quicker than the eye.” Our subconscious mind monitors both external and internal cues and instantly applies learned behaviors. When we are stressed, afraid, or worried, we perceive and act from a much more primitive, limited part of our brain; our fight-or-flight reptilian complex supersedes our rational neocortex. The higher mind responds; the lower brain reacts. As Lipton puts it, “The simple truth is, when you are frightened, you’re dumber.”
From birth to two years of age, the human brain operates predominately in Delta waves (1–4 Hz). From ages 2 to 6, we spend more time in Theta (4–8 Hz), low-frequency brainwaves that put us in a more suggestible, programmable state. Young children observe and download everything into their subconscious minds. As we get older, our brainwave frequencies increase to Alpha (8–13 Hz) and Beta (13–40 Hz), making us less impressionable. Hypnotherapy and many other kinds of healing modalities induce Theta states, where memories and beliefs are stored and more easily reprogrammed. Music, shamanic drumming, meditation, communing with Nature, being with animals, and long-distance driving can also move us into Theta states, greatly facilitating our access to creativity, intuition, and higher truths.
Mercury, the traditional ruler of Gemini and the planet most associated with the mind, conjuncts Venus at the peak of this full moon; this facilitates linking head with heart, thinking with feeling, logic with intuition. Even though the majority of all communication is nonverbal, we tend to discount or ignore the vast amount of information we receive from our other senses. Jupiter’s conjunctions with Mercury on May 27 and with Venus on May 28 support our ability to perceive that sound and light encode even more information than words, and that more data does not necessarily equate with more knowledge. Neptune closely squares this eclipse and exactly squares the Sun on May 26, awakening our “sixth sense,” our capacity to intuitively know what is truth and what is spin. Neptune amplifies intuition, imagination, illusion, and inspiration; pay special attention to what goes through your mind, your daydreams, night dreams, synchronicities etc. for important messages from your higher self.
Solar flares, a full moon which is both an eclipse and a SuperMoon, the 3rd Uranus-Pluto square, and Wesak makes this an extraordinary time for revelations and quantum leaps in consciousness. These words came to me while writing the 12/13/12 Update, and feel key for these times as well: There is nothing to fear. Relax. Rest. Release. Receive. Remember.
Relax in the knowing that you don't have to do anything, that you always have choice. Do less and be more; the best "doing" comes from your "being".
Rest into the loving support that is holding you and assisting you through this transition. Your guides and angels are on standby, waiting for you to call on them. You need only ask.
Release whatever is weighing you down and holding you back. Be in the present moment. Forgive others. Forgive yourself. Bless it all. Be grateful for what you learned.
Receive the light, the love, the information that is pouring down from the heavens. The downloads may take a while to decode. Hold beginners mind. We are making a quantum leap.
Remember who you really are. Remember that you were born and trained for these times. Remember that everything you need is inside you. Remember your heart knows the way.
