Spring Has Sprung, Fall Has Fell, etc.
The Galactic Times for September 22, 2004

As the old rhyme goes "Spring has sprung, Fall has fell." Those on the
northern side of the world might be saying, "Spring?" Yep, it's a fact.
It's now officially spring in Rio, Capetown, Wellington and Gundagai.
While those in every country "down under" might be in spring cleaning
mode, up above we're dusting off the atmospheric debris kicked up by the
autumnal harvests. For those muttering, "Yeah, whatever, I'm too busy
with Jupiter detailing the last degrees of mundane, work-duty-driven
Virgo to even think about cleaning," it's not a bad idea to polish
things up a bit. Of course, at this point, insert a healthy Virgo
Glad you asked. Over the next several days, the Sun, Mars and Jupiter
(Sun's there now) enter Libra. In so doing, they'll cross over the huge
black hole network in the early part of the scales and encounter the
center of the Super-Galaxy. Without dwelling on the astronomically vast
detailed picture of "how big and important is this," suffice it to say:
Relational themes now return. It might be trite to say, "love is in the
air," but what it takes to build a serious, solid relationship, bonded
at the core of being becomes the priority. It's kind of a soul mate
thing. But let's not get carried away with that. I was told by a psychic
when I was quite young, you never incarnate at the same time as your
soul mate. That takes some pressure off the "one and only" syndrome.
So here's the deal: if you're in a relationship, improve it by finding
your soul mate. If you're not in a relationship, draw one near by
finding your soul mate. According to this prescription, still relying
upon the last bit of impeccable Virgoan literal associations, one must
mate with their own soul to be a suitable partner for another. If so,
then the planetary passages over the Libran black holes goes well. If
not, emotional demands projected upon the other person seldom come about
to be fulfilled.
The process is not that hard. Simply, look at everything in your life.
Start saying "no" to things that do not support, feed, revere, nurture
and respect the core of your being. Sometimes it's hard. This could mean
saying "no thanks," to a high paying, but abusive job scenario. However,
as the culling proceeds, your spirit lightens. With a lighter spirit and
more fulfillment from life at large, the approach to one's partner - or
anyone in any kind of one-to-one relationship - becomes less demanding
and receptive to receiving.
A key element of the Libran process stems from learning to receive the
results of one's affirmations. When something appears that fully aligns
with your heart's desire, remember to stop affirming long enough to say
"thanks," to the black hole army supporting your cause and defending
your honor, and to take a step closer to initiate the first hug.
Cleanse (or clean), clear the debris field, polish your space for
opening, extend your boundaries clearly and enjoy the huge changes of
Since some e-mail recipients cannot receive longer
e-mails, I'll keep this GT shorter and see how the response fares.
Regardless, more to come as the new season settles on the scales.

So the other day, the Merriam-Webster e-mail word of the day was
"aspersion." With the Sun, Mars and Jupiter in Virgo (and soon Mercury
will be back), there could not be a more perfect word for consideration
(which means: with the stars). According to one definition, if someone
casts aspersions, they are making a false or misleading charges to harm
someone's reputation. But the original definition denotes a noun
meaning, "a sprinkling with water especially in religious ceremonies."
According to the background lore, some 16th century speakers noted that
such sprinklings could leave stains. Yikes, never go to a religious
ceremony without a ceremonial bottle of club soda or at least don't wear
linen or silk. This says nothing of the defamatory marking of having
soot rubbed on the brow to make one sacrificial at the start of lent.
With words like this it's no wonder communicating seems so difficult and
requires such precise hair splitting.
There's a lot in Virgo right now and fixing to be even more. During
September's new moon there will be five bodies standing in the celestial
wheat fields of the cosmic harvest. Perhaps the counterbalance comes
from Uranus in Pisces. In the effort of understanding, facts are sought
to create a logical understanding such that the rational mind can grasp
powerful abstractions. This is very good as long as it does not become
the classic forest-for-the-trees syndrome. Some have said that
enlightenment comes when there are no more questions to ask. But that
leaves a fantastic void where the journey begins all over again
revealing new, universal Piscean-like speculations.
Reports I hear suggest that the details of life seem a little crazy
making right now. Maybe too much detail is in the way. Too much brainy
hair splitting offers up a really bad mental hair day. But then again,
too little detail provides no solution. In the political arena,
candidates suggest bolstering the economy. I like it. But how? Then they
tell us the plan is too detailed to present and we couldn't understand
it anyway. Is there even a plan?
Maybe we need a "visit to the art gallery" approach. For me, I like to
stand back and take in the art. Then, I move closer to examine the
style, method and details of the work (not to mention price). The other
approaches of a close look first, then stepping back also is perfect.
The parts to the whole, whole to the parts hologram concept is alive and
To write the above paragraph I just stepped outside to take a short walk
and clear my head before the atmospheric temperature in Arizona exceeded
that of the corona of the Sun. Immediately upon walking across the
grass, the sprinkling system engaged. Fortunately, grubby T-shirts and
denim fare well under aspersions. As I walked by the nearby Shepherd of
the Desert Church, a round shiny object caught my eye. Picking it up, I
noticed it was a hologram. I'm not making this up. The hologram was
sphere of space of brilliant silver with the gasoline spill colors
shimmering in shifting rainbows inside this little emblem. Oh yes, this
emblem sought to verify the authenticity of some apparel purchased to
demonstrate devotional fanship to a professional football team. Since
footballs in this country are kind of elliptical, I drip dry flummoxed
regarding that actual shape of the Universe - spherical, elliptical or
flat like many current models suggestion in neo-Columbus-ian defiance.
And where is this going? In last week's Galactic Times (the one with the
wrong date at the top), I referenced the upcoming parade of planets to
the Super-Galactic Center. However, prior to that, all the planets must
pass through late Virgo angling in a hard aspect smack dab to the core
of our galaxy. Effectively, commencing September 8th and extending
through the 28th of the month, the core of the galaxy gets queried by
our solar system's curious planets. The Galactic Center, being in Sag
and all, actually digs this kind of questioning. It's like a playful
master who hears a question from a student, but renders an answer
relevant to the time, not necessarily addressing the query - but
addressing the question nevertheless.
Now should the student go, "Yeah, yeah, but what about my question,"
seeking a seemingly precise answer, the really grand information coming
down the cosmic funnel shunts into nothingness. My suggestion? Step back
this next month and listen carefully. Let the details unfold. Make no
assumptions. Consider the views of others. Fight the demons of
chauvinism - whether political, theological, artistic, metaphysical,
economic or related to rabid devotion to a football team (however it's
played in your country).
The Galactic Center encourages us to imbibe its renderings. Think them
through. Here's an example: In Arizona it was unfortunately revealed
that killing coyotes and bobcats causes domestic flooding. Indeed, if
you kill the animals that eat rabbits, rabbits proliferate. Rabbits eat
the sparse desert floor vegetation that has any chance of imbibing the
flow of monsoonal rains. Soon, insurance checks flow. Walk the logic
track on new insights without making determinations until the details of
the Universal Hologram thoroughly reveal themselves in multicolored
glory, regardless of shape.
The Galactic Center indeed aspirates the galaxy's ethers with insight.
Should one aspire to receive the aspirations, then one will be
galactically anointed. It does require stretching. No strain, no stain.
As soon as my hair dries, I'm going to visit my cosmic cosmetologist to
have my split ends treated.
Too chaotic out there to be having fun? Consider
