Hour of True Power

On March 29th, 26 major cities around the globe will go dark, in a heartwarming initiative designed to raise awareness of global warming.

From San Francisco to Sydney, Dublin to Bangkok, city landmarks will experience a "green out" as they are lit not by neon, but by nature alone. This throwback to yesteryear should be an inspiring sight for us all.

Learn more about this Earth Hour experiment, and why it's a great opportunity to go stargazing...or make music by moonlight...or have a romantic candlelit meal...or...

Pluto, Wesak, and Historic Opportunity

Pluto, the Great Transformer, makes its final passage across the Galactic Center, completing the series of historic conjunctions that began in Christmas week, December 2006 (what a week that was for me! My story about living mobilely, The New Nomads, which I'd been trying to write for 3 years, suddenly came gushing forth in 3 hours!).

This final Pluto/Galactic Center tete-a-tete takes place with Pluto in retrograde motion (appearing to travel "backward" from our vantage point on Earth) into Sagittarius, before turning direct and moving into Capricorn for the next 15 years.

Intuitive astrologer Allison Rae, whose latest issue of Cosmic Time is replete with topical information, says, "When the Lord of the Underworld aligns with the massive star- and planet-making black hole at the center of the Milky Way, changes are deep, fast, furious and long-lasting. It may not feel like it, but all Heaven in breaking loose on Earth. During this retrograde phase, we have another chance for Divine Love to emerge as the dark recesses of the individual and collective psyche are purged of illusion - the self-limiting thoughts, beliefs, programs and addictions that have no place in an enlightened future."

We also enjoy two full moons in Scorpio, April 20 and May 19-20, bookends for Wesak, the Buddha's birthday celebration, which this year takes place April 20th. Since Pluto rules Scorpio, this can be an especially rich growth opportunity, notes Rae, a time to "uproot longstanding karmic patterns and accelerate our transformation into self-realized divine beings." It's also an auspicious and potent moment to pray for Tibet liberation at long last.

A Time to Yinify

As Easter and the Equinox are kinned this year, it seems an ideal moment to embrace union and renewal on all levels. I coined the word yinify years ago to mean, bringing more of the Feminine energy and the essence of harmony and balance into ourselves and into the world.

While I've long supported Dennis Kucinich, who embodies yinification to a remarkable degree, with his withdrawal from the U.S. presidential quest I now view Barack Obama as a candidate who, by both his nature and personal history, stands poised to bring a divided country closer to collaboration than ever before. I think it would be absolutely awesome to have these two insightful, impassioned leaders share stewardship of the USA's highest elected office.

Enjoy this impassioned talk:
A More Perfect Union

And read Dennis's visionary speech, Spirit and Stardust, first delivered at the Praxis Peace Conference in Croatia in 2002.

Aries Amplifies: Earth in Rebirth!

Astrologer Allison Rae has a euphonic way with words, especially as Spring bubbles to the fore once again. Here's an excerpt from her current newsletter:

"...a new Light bursts into being with the animated energies of the Aries Equinox and Full Moon this week. We're freshly reconfigured from the powerful February eclipse series, good to go for the next round of evolutionary expansion.

"The Sun enters Aries late Wednesday or early Thursday, depending on your time zone, marking the Vernal Equinox and the beginning of a new astrological year in the Northern Hemisphere. In the Southern Hemisphere, it's Autumn Equinox, a time of harvest and reflection. Day and night are equally balanced. The cardinal, initiating energies of this equinox alignment give the cosmic green light for whatever you've been dreaming of beginning, or becoming. Life on Earth is poised for rebirth. The equinox is followed closely by the Libra/Aries Full Moon, emphasizing themes of balance, harmony and new beginnings.

"The March 19-21 Equinox portal is an auspicious moment in cosmic time. This alignment is filled with magic, mysticism, surprises and connection with other realms as Venus and Mercury join Uranus in transcendent Pisces and the Moon conjuncts Saturn and the fixed star Regulus. A vision for humanity's future takes shape with Neptune and Chiron in Aquarius.

"Our thoughts, words, actions and emotions will be amplified throughout all dimensions during this special gateway. A star is born, the polished crystalline gem you are becoming, shining, brilliant in the awakening sky."

And fellow shapeshifter Lara Shah, an international connector/catalyst with a wild and wacky sense of humor, reminds us to "breathe and laugh a lot. Just laugh yourselves silly. See the divine comedy that is life."

As I say on the Live Your Light home page, "Laughter lights us up. Conscious evolution is purposeful play!" And this, siblings on the journey, is what it means to look on the Light side!

Happy rebirthing...

Total Momsense: Hilarious Maternal Wisdom

This vid is too good to save for a Mother's Day post: everything a mother says in 24 hours, condensed into just under 3 minutes, and sung to the William Tell Overture:

The Mom Song

Better sit up straight and wipe that smirk off your face, if you know what's good for you...

The Wealth We've Waited For

It's time for the wise to be wealthy! In her latest transmission, Patti Cota-Robles joyfully announces, "2008 will go down in the annals of history as the Cosmic Moment when Humanity’s descent into poverty consciousness was reversed by the unified efforts of Lightworkers everywhere." Yippee! How ready are we all to welcome the abundance that is our birthright?

Patti reports: "During this momentous time, we will burst the paralyzing grip that our fragmented human consciousness has had on us. This obsolete aspect of our personality has manipulated us for aeons of time into believing that we are only our physical bodies and that the physical plane of Earth is all that exists. This fallen, fear-based level of our consciousness accepts the illusion of lack and limitation. It also believes that it has the right to do whatever is necessary in order to get what it wants, even if it means lying, stealing, cheating or killing. All we have to do is observe the atrocities taking place all over the world to confirm this statement.

"This is a New Day on Planet Earth, however, and we have reached a critical mass of energy, vibration and consciousness that is lifting us into the patterns of perfection for the New Earth. Together, this year, we will cocreate the NEW Archetypes for Humanity’s Abundance and establish a new paradigm on Earth based on the infinite flow of Abundance from our Father-Mother God. Through our unified efforts, our Victory is assured!"

She goes on to explain what I and so many others around the world have been committed to this lifetime: helping to unify our feminine and masculine energies into wholeness, both within ourselves and as a planetary organism. Because as we attain balance and open our hearts to full breadth, peace and prosperity must follow as the natural outcome.

And now we have reached critical mass (or, we might say, an uncritical mass :-) and the process can flower into fullness. This is true abundance: health, wealth and wisdom united, as we come to realize we are never alone, but instead, ALL ONE.

In the Pink with Tink

What Shines/March 2008 is about a Big Tank of Pink Liquid (you'll have to read the newsletter to discover what that means!) and also describes several inter-species instances of predators becoming pals. Loyal reader and contributor Jacqui Hoag just sent another pink moment over the wire: a dachshund fostering a piglet! His name's Pink, a combo of "pig" and "Tink" (the Mama dog). Pink's the cleanest puppy/piglet ever, because Tink licks him all the time.

Hi Tech for Higher Purpose

Since I just referenced the famous Star Trek transporter device in the March issue of my e-zine, What Shines, I was deLighted to find the following article on how so many of the visionary TV show's technological inventions are now in actual existence (or getting there).

I've always thought Star Trek was written by walk-ins (higher dimensional aspects of ourSelves that step into our 3-D bodies, often moving our lives in very different directions. BTW, having a walk-in is a clear soul agreement, so if the information is new to you and scary sounding, fear not: no one can "walk into" your body without your consent!).

So...we've enjoyed our techno-toys, and are now delving more deeply into how we can use technology for the highest good of the planet. Check out these nifty adaptations of brill sci-fi:
