By the time you read this, the most recent MERCURY RETROGRADE PERIOD will have ended (although "the shadow" days remain in effect until August 15th). The next 3+ weeks of it will occur from November 1st-20th. Even though the effect depends upon a rather illusory consequence of a planet's relative motion to us, matters related to planet Mercury's rulership, such as communication and transportation, get scrambled up! The mainstream seems only vaguely aware of the phenomenon. Here are some examples that I've been made aware of during this most recent event:
Members of my family who were traveling abroad had one of their credit cards shut down due to an "unauthorized user". In the hair salon, my hairdresser suffered two missed appointments and one unscheduled visit. A biologist-client was held responsible for a weird measurement mix-up in the lab even though he'd been on vacation. A neighbor's car "died" suddenly in the driveway. Plans for carpooling to a luncheon were misunderstood. A client's surgery date was left up in the air. And, last but not least, our new porch windows were installed but measured incorrectly. (They'll be corrected.)
Sometimes this type of problem can't be avoided because the situation must go forward. But many times, foreknowledge is very helpful. For example, I'd try not to plan vacations or elective surgery during a Mercury retrograde. The likelihood of lost paperwork, technical glitches, do-overs, repairs to the job, or a change of mind is the result. In the case of our porch windows, the order was placed in April, well before the retrograde, but the delivery of materials and actual installation was delayed until it was in effect.
The energy, however, is useful for going back over matters. Editing revisions, renovations, and renegotiations fall under this category, as does a purchase of a used or vintage item. Even so, it's best to wait until the Mercury Station Direct to write the check or put it through your credit card. I still have FREE MERCURY RETROGRADE CALENDAR CARDS for anyone who requests one. Be sure to give me your actual mailing address.
Just for fun, let's hear from you about your most recent Mercury rx glitches! I'll publish them so we can all learn how best to schedule our lives from now on!

AUG 2019 ASTRO TIDBITS
For the World, the month opens with sudden changes, unhelpful for travel (
New Moon square Uranus
). Important deals can be discussed from the 2nd through the 15th (
Mercury station direct, out of its shadow
), to be finalized by the 16th, perhaps with some last-minute shifts due to prior misunderstandings (
Lunar Eclipse opposite degree of Mercury station; Mercury square Uranus
). The 11th is pleasant for socializing (
Jupiter station direct trine Venus
). The 21st indicates good communications (
Mercury trine Jupiter
). The 27th is exciting for gain or fun (
Venus trine Uranus
), and the 28th-29th indicates inventiveness (
Mars trine Uranus
For the U.S., the 1st focuses on the stock market and maybe the Federal Reserve (
New Moon in U.S. H8 conjunct Node
). Most of the month brings violent protests and threats (
Pluto quinqunx U.S. Mars
), but creativity and excitement abound on the 3rd (
Venus conjunct U.S. Node, sextile U.S. Uranus
). On the 5th, our internal conflicts are apparent (
U.S. progressed Moon opposite U.S. Sun
), but we can act with force (
Mars sextile U.S. Mars
), and "make nice" by the 7th (
Venus trine U.S. Ascendant
). The 11th continues July's positive pattern for economic gain and positive innovation (
Uranus station retrograde sextile U.S. Jupiter, trine U.S. progressed Ascendant
), but also indicates a mixture of over-optimism, especially regarding spending, versus slow and sensible efforts (
Jupiter station direct sextile U.S. Saturn exact, square U.S. progressed Sun, quinqunx U.S. Sun/progressed Jupiter
). Mid-month brings protests from angry women, probably over the abortion issue (
Mars opposite U.S. Moon; Full Moon conjunct U.S. progressed Mercury/Moon in H3
). The country has no will for warfare (
Neptune quinqunx U.S. progressed Mars
), and is reevaluating its role as "World Cop" or parent (
Saturn square U.S. Saturn in Libra H10
). Nevertheless, we show military strength on the 27th (
Mars trine U.S. progressed Ascendant
). By month's end, an excellent pattern begins that is beneficial for real estate, banks, and wealth (
U.S. progressed Venus enters Taurus
). Healthcare is an emotional topic on the 31st (
New Moon in Virgo conjunct U.S. progressed Ascendant
For President Trump, the month's start allows him to exert power (
New Moon conjunct his progressed Midheaven/Pluto
) despite dealing with many abrupt changes (
Pluto quinqunx his Uranus
). He is swamped with paperwork on the 2nd, pondering his goals carefully (
Mercury station direct conjunct his Saturn exact, square his Jupiter
). Week 1 sees him very intuitive and energetic (
Mars sextile his Node/progressed Uranus/Sun
), and lucky with money matters (
Venus conjunct his Pluto
). Week 2 brings positive deals (
Jupiter station direct trine his progressed Mercury
) and diplomacy (
Venus conjunct his progressed Mercury, sextile his Jupiter
), and he is energized for "Round 2" (
a Mars return
). Despite old problems re-arising, such as overdoing things (
Neptune square his Uranus, quinqunx his Jupiter
), he is popular and having fun from the 14th-15th (
Venus sextile his Node/progressed Uranus/Sun, sextile his Moon
), a strong and bold alpha male on the 17th-22nd (
Mars conjunct his Ascendant/progressed Moon/progressed Sun, sextile his progressed Ascendant
), and feels on top of the world on the 18th-23rd (
Venus conjunct his Mars/Ascendant/progressed Moon/Sun
). Much communication proceeds on the 31st (
Mars sextile his Mercury
AOC has been under tremendous pressure to alter her lifestyle and way of doing things recently (
Pluto square her Sun
), but she will continue to get away with outrageous behavior until mid-September (
Jupiter conjunct her Ascendant, sextile her Mars
Presidential hopeful Joe Biden is going through a turbulent period all month (
Uranus station retrograde square his Pluto
New dad, Prince Harry, Duke of Sussex, may learn interesting news on the 11th (
Uranus station retrograde trine his Mercury
), but feels weak or lethargic later in the month (
Neptune square his Mars
). By year's end, affection cools and he may find his finances restricted (
Saturn square his Venus
). By Spring 2021, he will be questioning his identity (
natal Sun square Neptune; transiting Neptune opposite his Sun

To hear birdsong is to recognize life. If ever you feel down, you need only to sit quietly in nature - a park or woods - and listen. Yes, you may hear the wind rustling in the leaves; you may even hear insects in summertime. But sooner or later, you'll probably hear a bird. If you listen intently, you'll hear birds yelling alarms about predators, quarreling with each other, sometimes mimicking the sounds of other birds or creatures, trilling... in short, communicating.
Just think of it! The mighty and terrible dinosaurs of Earth's youth have, through the long process of evolution, become all our vast variety of birds. Sometimes very little birds. Sometimes beautifully colored birds. Birds who specialize. Birds who cleanse decay. Birds who sometimes form lifelong monogamous partnerships. And birds who live in almost every corner of the Earth.
Almost all of these birds sing.
When we establish colonies on places such as the Moon or Mars, one of the most alien and disconcerting things will be the silence. The absence of birds and their pleasurable messaging. Until we terraform a planet to bring an atmosphere to it, or find an earthlike substitute planet, birds can't follow us into space. Or they may within controlled environments. For heaven's sake, in large warehouse stores such as Lowes or Home Depot there are almost always birds living in its nooks and crannies! So why not in our space stations, helping us make the human journey into strange new landscapes?
There may still be a few places on Earth, such as an arctic desert or the parched and desiccated sand dunes of large stretches on our continents where birds are lacking, but even then, the nature programs reveal instances of hidden bird life in their nooks and crannies. Humanity evolved simultaneously with birds. In fact, they had a jump on us! They arrived first, and maybe their destiny was to help us remember Mother Nature.
What else brings us such peace, such affirmation of life, such joy at being alive? Even over the noise of cities, you'll hear birdsong. You'll hear God.

BOOK REVIEW: "Dawn Behind the Dawn: A Search for the Earthly Paradise" - Geoffrey Ashe (Henry Holt, 1992)
Lately, I've been on a kick regarding the search for prehistoric civilizations well before that of ancient Egypt or Mesopotamia. Through avenues such as geology, psychics, archeological findings, Lidar, even a past life regression given me under a professional's guidance, and other evidence, it seems we are being shown interesting truths about mankind's earliest history. Many things are being brought to light that were previously hidden or just not available. This curiosity was the motive for me to read this book, hoping to find yet more evidence or at least some new discoveries. Even though I didn't find exactly what I thought would be revealed, I am not disappointed.
Ashe has done remarkable scholarly research and presents it in cogent and well-organized writing. What he has explored is a theory of the true seedbed of civilization and the way it branched out to influence the Western mind, some of India, and even a little of China.
Beginning with an area in Siberia of a mountainous region where gold was available, he paints a picture through artifacts, myths, legends, rituals, and commonsensical tie-ins to the sky, of an earliest culture, shamanistic, matriarchal, peaceful, and centered upon the constellation of the Great Bear, Ursa Major. Without the need for warfare, this culture is likened to a paradise, and existed about 25,000 years ago. The region for this Goddess-worshipping group is the Altai near the vast Lake Baikal.
Remembered as a golden age, many of its core concepts then spread into Europe and also branched out in parts of the East. One of the core points regards the attention to the number seven, which as he emphasizes is not particularly meaningful in terms of groupings, whereas the three is sacred as a trinity, but here we see its roots in the seven main stars of Ursa Major, and also in earliest astronomy in which the five planets that can be seen without a telescope - called the Wanderers as they move through the sky (zodiac belt) - when added with the Sun and Moon also became seven, and which in earliest astrology were then linked with seven metals to begin to describe planetary influences on Earth.
And so, we have an earliest culture that worshipped a female goddess who was accessed through shamanism in ecstatic states, and came from the North. "A sort of paradise of primitive Goddess wisdom."
Ashe then goes on to show how these themes spread southwards, encountered patriarchal warring cultures that subsumed the goddess under a male deity but kept in various forms the seven mystique, and traces of shamanism. He points out, for instance, that two of the earliest deities in ancient Greece were acknowledged to exist before Zeus and his band - Apollo, a Sun God, and his twin Artemis, a Moon Goddess who was identified with a bear - even though bears were not the most common animal in southerly Greece! The Delphic Oracle is understood as a shamanistic experience, especially via a female priestess. Another example is the Israelites' intense focus on the seven-day week, echoing the sacredness of the seven mystique.
This theory places the beginnings of Western culture and civilization tens of thousands of years ago in the North. Many subsequent cultures and religions reference a northern mountain, or a place beyond the northern mountains as a golden paradise. From Greece's Hyperboreans to the Israelite's Mount Zion, to Buddhism's Shambhala, all have a seemingly racial memory connected to a remote northern height, to a universal center attached or bridged to it at a mountaintop or through a female Great Bear constellation, and an aspiration to reach the divine realm through that avenue. So, using folklore, language, myths, some physical evidence, Ashe,
via theorizing and weaving together many famous works of literature through the ages,
presents a True Source.
Although I enjoyed this brilliant work, I did not appreciate his dismissive and sometimes even contemptuous attitude towards astrology and the Theosophy of Blavatsky and Alice Bailey, for here is a thinker who may himself never have studied the validity of astrology in people's lives and human events, nor ever had a true shamanistic mystical experience himself. This attitude, often seen in academia, is a great shortcoming in his efforts to describe a seedbed of a shamanic culture that was a lost paradise. Nevertheless, 3.5 stars.

Teachings of The Brotherhood of Light Workers
By Judi Thomases
The following segment has been received, word for word through a psychic process known as channeling. It is an invited procedure. The teachings always serve to guide
us through the journey of life. Compilations of many such messages are available in book, PDF and audio formats:
Compilation of BoLW's Messages
If you think you are alone in life, you are mistaken, for there are legions of souls connected to you from this and previous lives, and each of your actions is precipitated by their will and desire regarding the greater outcome, and by your own many previous lives on this and other planets. There is an interweaving of energy, a merging of individualities, and a vast and general creative thrust that seems to move into the future but is in reality all taking place at once. This has been called the Energy Soup, or the Field.
It is an illusion, useful but misleading, that we are here separated into a single body, a single mind, a single consciousness, and that all of our choices and behaviors are simply that of a single individual. Nothing could be further than this truth: that the universe is one consciousness, one creative movement. Think of it as if there were one person in many guises, in as many unique expressions as possible, and that if you were that one person in another of these guises, how would you be reacting, what would you be choosing, what would give you pleasure and joy, and what would not. This one person is historically named God, because the amalgamation of so many consciousnesses, histories, experiences, and accumulated wisdom, all brought into one container, can have no other name.
We are not here disparaging the religious concept of a deity, of a divine being. Rather, we are speaking of the actuality of the world, of the universe in that the separated consciousnesses of individuals eternally move toward the recognition of their own divinity, their own absolute connection with the One, or Highest Being, that results from this amalgamation, and that in fact it is the notion of aloneness that is false, not the notion of divinity.
Let us speak a little further of divinity. If you, as the one person who has previously and currently been exploring all versions of individuality, all unique expressions that are possible, by now have managed to reach such insight regarding life, regarding spirit interacting with form, and regarding what can be learned from a soul playing at being a human, that you are now infused with light. Also, through such exploration, what is called the heart has become completely open to the nature of suffering so as to become fully, totally, amazingly compassionate - the definition of which is unconditional love. You have done so much exploring and experiencing that you have managed to become complete light and complete love. This, of course, is also God. This is the definition of the highest of beings.
In this era, the truth of oneness is beginning to come forward. Just as you are never alone nor separated, you are also realizing that you are moving inexorably to the realization that it's all God. That he or she who is called a person is actually an aspect or reflection of the Highest.
Thus, we do not denigrate divinity; we champion it. It is, you are learning, who you actually are. And how can God ever be alone even when singular?
