Here in California under a nebulous, chemtrail sky heavy and dense, I await the rising Wesak Moon now that Scorpio is Void of Course on the cusp of much more exhuberant Sagittarius @ 8;18 PM PDT
Astrology of the Wesak Moon
Jupiter the ruler in tight sextile to the cosmic shocker Uranus @ 22 degrees - an aspect which perfects on May 21st @ 11:08 AM activating a false economic wave with stocks rising for a few months. Uranus is the planet of Mass Tonight's Full Moon besides the critical 29 degree Sun and Moon has the focal point of the Yod (Finger of God) @ 22 degrees S. Node in MidHeaven over the West Coast and at the base of that triangle is Jupiter 60 degrees away from Uranus both Quincunx to the Dragon's tail in super-dramatic Leo now bolstered by Mars in this hot and dry sign...Notice how the Sun has been really changing since meeting with Central Sun Alcyone (heart fo the Pleiades) this year.
Energies are definitely building to a crescendo as with the Scorpio Moon @ 29* 27' with a certain ominous dark Sabian Symbol of the Halloween Jester ready to pull more pranks on a hysterical human race...a modern image talks of " a criminal walking among the revelers at a Halloween ball wearing the mask of a boar." aren't we in the year of the boar? This degree of Scorpio catalyzes the Midheaven of the foundation chart for Israel, Lebanon's Sun (more trouble there), Fiji's Neptune (illusions of coups and certainly more quakes) and Tonga's connection to Neptune with a real shocker to come to Antiqua-Barbados with this degree of the Scorpion meeting Uranus!
As for 29 Taurus 27 we have connections to the Midheaven for Yugoslavia, Uranus for Romania, the MidHeaven for Cuba and finally last but definitely not least the MidHeaven for Vatican City. The Sabian for 30 Taurus is a bit more stylish and coloful: "A peacock spreads its feathers on the grounds of an old mansion."
Before we get even deeper into the Wesak Festival and the spiritual nature of chart, let's take a quick look at the Venus SQ Neptune aspect which perfects this evening @ 11:28 PM creating an atmosphere for resignations, defeats, mystery and illusion. Just three days ago we passed the MidPoint of the Galactic 5th “Night” in he Mayan Calendar - a period of time that began on Nov. 19th, 2007 and finally ends on Nov. 12th, 2008. Despite tonight's Wesak Lunation(also known as the Festival of Buddha and Festival of Enlightenment) we are deep into a time when many are ready to break the bonds of the NET super-imposed around our planet thousands of years ago. A time when many want to rise above the ignorance and superstitions that have been placidly accepted via religion and other authorities.. With Saturn now direct and moving toward an exact opposition on Nov. 4th 2008 - the masses no longer are so complacent in this cycle of life. The question is how they will become active participants bring about change in this tumultuous world. I say it is much safer to telepath with the devotees on Mt. Shasta celebrating Wesak which is commemorated during the full moon in May then adhere to the masses around Obama or Hillary or McCain. Wesak is considered to be the holiest day of the year, when Heaven and Earth are connected and these candidates all are using this force to further old agendas.
A politcal-social struggle based on firsts
First time we have had three generations in a presidential race. Obama (born Aug. 4, 1961) representing the X generation (Pluto in Virgo) has Mars @ 22 Virgo Opposing transiting Uranus and his own Uranus @ 25 Leo SQ Neptune creating a mass of true beleivers. Leading the baby boomers (Pluto in Leo generation) Hillary (born Oct. 26, 1947)with Moon @ 22 Pisces is getting a major boost for her form of autocratic rule. Finally from the time of the silent majority (Pluto in Cancer gen.) comes John Sydney McCain III (Aug. 29, 1936) with Venus @ 22 Virgo keeping a firm grasp on family values while riding the tide of the Neptune SQ with Juno @ 24 Leo and dramatic Mars @ 12 Leo catching the wave of current transits.
So what's all this about Blue Beam? Well the current fixed Neptune aspects starting with a Sun SQ then today's Venus SQ and finally a Mars-Leo Opposition on June 21st.
Mars opposing Neptune on the nodal axis is probably the most powerful known as a time when actions, motivations, and initiatives seem questionable and often counter-productive. This is a time when institutions like the Vatican tend to be driven more by ideology or belief than by reality - hmmmm...
Didn't the Vatican's chief astronomer and scientific adviser to Pope Benedict, say that there's no conflict between the Christian faith and the existence of extraterrestrials?
Then we hear that Guy Consolmagno - Vatican Astronomer and major Jesuit player, commissioned by the Vatican to write a booklet on incorporating Extraterrestrials into Vatican theology, talk about Baptizing Aliens.
Finally Padre Corrado Balducci - Vatican Head Demonologist and advisor to several Popes appears on Italian TV saying that Aliens exist. WTF - A Setup For Sure
Wesak Moon and the Yods and Mystic Rectangle.
Prominent are two Yods and a Mystic Rectangle. It is no accident that the Yods alternately point at both Jupiter (stationing in Capricorn) and the South Node, both in the master number of 22 degrees, which bring gifts from the past. The first Yod has Mercury in it's rulership, Gemini, and combines with Ceres to enhance communications, and sextiles the South Node in Leo, with spiritual focus on Jupiter (esoterically the realm of the ascended masters). With the second Yod, the Jupiter sextile to Uranus is demanding freedom. This puts the finger of god onto South Node in Leo requesting that the gifts of heart and generosity are deposited with all spiritual adherents. Chiron, Neptune and North Node of future destiny are all close together in Aquarius, trine Mercury in Gemini, creating a space for tremendous healing on many planes. Also a mystic rectangle (composed to two oppositions that are sextile to each other) marks this lunation. Inspiration and creativity are dominant with air and fire elements: Juno in Sag. sextiles Neptune in Aquarius and they oppose Mercury/Ceres in Gemini and S Node in Leo respectively. Astrologically the end of May (the 26th) and following the Wesak Moon, Neptune and Mercury station retrograde offering a time to revisit the beauty of this powerful time of invocation and merging with future planetary enlightenment. Don't forget we all have free will to only believe our own senses not some freakin' holograms!

Passions Move as Transformations Cry Out.
Even with a lovely Venus-Moon conjunction today (May4) the dark of the moon with rising images of Balsamic Visions has not been calm. Juno (goddess of relationships both fair and squre) is applying to a conjunction with the dark lord Pluto recently retrograde back on April 2nd. That day just three short days before the last New Moon in Aries also had a spiritual signature of Moon occulting Neptune (happens once a month now with Neptune in collectively, revolutionary Aquarius). So today we had Neptune exactly meet North Node of destiny @ 10:56 AM PDT gathering all the souls for a massive spiritual thrust both within and without.
Mystery of Mary Magdalen and Jesus Revealed?
The new moon occurs on May 5th at 15 Taurus 22. Per Dr. Edmund Jones in his book The Sabian Symbols (page 194) the Sabian for 16 Taurus: "An old man attempting vainly to reveal the Mysteries". This speaks loudly (Taurus rules throat-larynx) of an unwavering integrity and higher vision, and an strong determination to dramatize it. On May 9th a new movie premieres in New York then the West Coast on May 16th. and it deals with recent finds which prove Jesus Christ was married to Mary Magdalene and they had a child.
A recent ABC interview with Bruce Burgess (born Feb 15, 1968) with an Aquarian Stellium that is conjunct current North Node-Neptune and a Mars-
Chiron Pisces conjunction opposing Uranus in Virgo which is substantiating the proof of this claim. Othe ther press conferences are starting to get the word out.
You will see below in this article a that the current trines to Uranus are breaking lots of the ancient taboos and walls around the sacred...
A TIME FOR CROP CIRCLES
With excessive, expansive belief oriented Jupiter stationing in Form Oriented
Capricorn @ 22 degrees matching a time in 1993 when Uranus-Neptune were brining crop circles in tremendous regularity to the UK.
Again with the combo of Pluto's Cap. ingress and Jupiter moving backwards to sacred geometry merging with sacred art. Again the mighty circular and harmonious forms will be visible.
Tornadoes and Cyclones
Mercury ingress into Gemini and Capricorn's Ruler stationing direct to trine
Pluto-Venus in EARTH.
Arkansas deadly tornadoes during a Mercury Void of Course period with a prominient
Neptune-NNode Quincunx inundating, wet and moody Mars in Cancer.
A physical manifestation: tremendous damage caused by a tropical cyclone in Myanmar on Saturday which has South Node culminating on Monday's New Moon west of a Mars Line. So what does all this have to do with tomorrow's New Moon in deep, earthy fixed Taurus? Everything...
Early am the eta Aquarid meteor shower peaks and is visible on Monday, May 5th, and Tuesday, May 6th. Best visibility is during the hours immediately before sunrise.
So the Aquarius is represented with Neptune-North Node and Chiron all opposing the royal dominion of Leo representing the Dragon's tail...gifts of generosity are coming from the past along with a fading of the old dominance of kings and queens.
Pluto and Juno culminating among other Astro Cartographic Lines out West
Using astrocartography we find these two unlikely partners culminating way out to sea between 137 W to 139 W all the way from Antarctica to the Arctic.
Folks up and down the west Coast are nervous to say the least as multiple quakes have hit off the Oregon Coast primarily 158 km ( 98 mi) W of Bandon, OR and in the last three days literally swarms of tremors in the ANDREANOF ISLANDS, ALEUTIAN IS., ALASKA...Not to mention the literally hundreds of quakes in the Reno: Verdi-Mogul, NV region around 39 N to 120 W. right around where Venus-Hygeia-Sun-Moon are crossing Jupiter culminating in MC and stationing retrograde on May 9th.
New Madrid is marked by Chiron running right thru this fault line and North Node culminating on the East. The epicenter of the recent S. Illinois/Missouri quakes right in the middle at 38.450°N, 87.860°W
The chart above set for San Francisco shows Venus-Hygeia-Sun-Moon all together in the first house perhaps reflecting a movement to build true health after some rough economic hews caused by the wholesale price index moving up with the price of oil.
Well one thing is for sure the Mars transit thru Cancer now in the 4th house of domestic values has not only brought a stoppage to the movement of goods thru the West Coast as ILWU (International Longshore and Warehouse Union) was successful in Shutting Down West Coast Ports May 1, Demanding End to War in Iraq, Afghanistan.
The great restructuring of earth, reflected in our socio-political and economic upheavel, begun in earnest after Pluto entered Capricorn back on January 25th. In esoteric astrology, Taurus works with Pisces, via Vulcan and Pluto (secret ruler of Pisces), in order to channel the first ray of Will and Power. Ideally this combination should lead to the transmutation of desire into sacrifice, and of the individual will into divine will; but we do not live in a perfect world.
Yes as Pluto continues to retrograde the Galactic Center all the way to 28 Sagittarius 29 to station on Sept. 9th we will have crossed over many of those same areas of abandon as we did in 2007 yet Juno pushes buttons faster to transmute emotional, sexual and power urges towards regeneration. The other part of the Fixed Cross is Scorpio the empty part of the chart were jealousy and possesive nature is met head on The ritual murder-suicide of the DC Madam won't stop the revelation of
Washington and Global leaders sexual escapades.
Uranus the Trickster Strikes again.
Modern ruler of Aquarius pushes the envelope...
This chart has three Uranian aspects moving forward towards the Wesak Moon on May 19th @ 7:11 PM but this time with South Node at 22 degrees Leo. Speaking of the Wesak Moon and that degree for SNode near MC: "a bareback rider in a circus thrills excited fans." Mars @ 5 degrees in performance oriented Leo is in an out of sign trine to Moon now @ 29 Scorpio plus parallel Sun, semisextile Mercury and for the topper Sesquiquadrate or a 135° angle(a square [90°] + a semisquare [45°]). to Uranus. Which can be a bit stressful or having evil portents when falling between two important planets.
(1)An Applying Sun Sextile Uranus which perfects on May 12th for more innovative thinking and unusual conditions (2) Applying Venus Sextile Uranus perfects on May 18th
Hailing even more incredible events and First Time Happenings which will occur. Plus Uranus which symbolizes group activities and the masses or throngs bringing about behaviors are highly erratic to say the least - stimulated by the Internet. (3) Applying Mercury Square Uranus which doesn't actually perfect till June due to Mercury moving retrograde on May 26th @ 22 Gemini. This has a nice happy sabian symbol: The barn dance which symbolizes not only a gregarious mood but taking a new step in the dance of life.
Of course we may find communications are interrupted and subject to some breakdown along with weather changes. Unquestionably transportation will also have glitches and be unstable. Media will seize on hocking news, more then likely some attacks on governmental and authority figures around the world. Plus a nice heavy dose of controversy, innovation, and protests will ring in this aspect.
