6 Hard-Hitting Facts About Life From The ‘World’s Poorest President’ That Will Make You Question Everything

Published

“To succeed in your professional life isn’t that hard, but to succeed in your personal life is a lot harder. To really be a human is a lot harder. We forget about that.”

These are the words of Yann Arthus-Bertrand, director of the film Human, from which the clip below was taken. The gentleman in the clip is Jose Mujica. Dubbed ‘the world’s poorest president,’ he recently retired after a five year run as the president of Uruguay. In the 60’s and 70’s, he was a Tupamaros freedom fighter, and was subsequently detained and put in solitary confinement for 13 years. After holding several positions within the Uruguayan government, he eventually became the president of his country, serving from 2010 to 2015. Over the course of his life he has endured the unimaginable, and he offers us today some wisdom borne of his incredible experiences.

“I dedicated myself to the struggle for change, to improve life in my society. And now, I am the president.” 

Below the video you will find 6 facts about life and the current human experience that will definitely have you questioning your role in this world.

  • Your Time Here Is Limited – What Are You Going To Do With Your Life?

“And tomorrow, like everyone, I’ll just be a can of worms, and disappear.”

As Gandalf the Grey from J.R.R. Tolkien’s The Lord of The Rings once said, “all we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given to us.” Life is indeed short, and our time here is limited, so ask yourself, what do you want to do with the time that has been given to you?

Being born today probably means you’re going to spend most of your childhood in school, most of your adolescence in more school, and then most of your adulthood at work. Unfortunately, even after expending all this effort and sacrificing all this time, many of us can barely afford a roof over our heads and healthy food on the table. We are, for lack of a better term, ‘slaves to the system.’ What is truly depressing about this cycle is that it is entirely unnecessary. Nothing about our existence inherently require us to live in this way. And while we should of course be grateful for the opportunities we have in life and for being able to afford basic necessities — a luxury many people do not enjoy – we should nevertheless continue striving for more — more freedom, more choice, more autonomy.

Personally, I believe you can create your own life, or at least create joy in yourself regardless of your circumstances. I have been placed in multiple situations that I did not want to be in, but I chose to accept them and look at them as challenges and opportunities for growth. In the meantime, I still engaged myself in my passions as much as I could. While we cannot always choose our circumstances, we can always choose our attitude about them.

Do what ignites your soul as much as possible — this is my philosophy. If you don’t know what your passion is, start paying closer attention to the way things make you feel. When you find yourself excited about something, take note of it, and begin to think of ways to incorporate it into your daily life. There is always a step you can take, no matter how small you perceive it to be.

If you have an intention in your heart, whether it is to make the world a better place or to help other people, that intention alone can be the starting point of something great, provided you take the necessary action steps to get there.

So I ask you again, what ignites your heart? What would you like to spend your time doing? What would you like to work towards? Doing what you love makes you feel good, and we need more people on this planet who feel happy and fulfilled within themselves, radiating that positivity outwards.

I think the biggest takeaway from this is to be grateful for your life, and take full advantage of this precious gift while you can.

  • Changing The World Isn’t Easy

“I dedicated myself to the struggle for change . . . I had many setbacks, many injuries, some years in prison, Anyway… The routine for anyone setting out to change the world. Miraculously, I’m still here. And above alI, I love life.” 

If you are on this site and reading this article, there’s a good chance you have within you the desire to change the world. I receive emails all the time from people who want to have a positive impact, but they just don’t seem to know where to begin. In many cases, they don’t feel like they are even capable of having any significant impact on the world.

This is one thing that I have struggled with and still do; I often feel like my actions do not matter. I’ve learned, however, that the change you effect in this world cannot be measured in dollars and cents or by Facebook likes and followers. It is not quantifiable in that way. Your impact is measured by how you treat others in your everyday life. If you can operate from a place of inner peace, if you can be kind to others, and if you can maintain a desire to help people, you will be well on your way to making significant planetary change.

It’s not an easy process. Your will is going to be tested and your buttons are going to be pushed. Most people who wish to spend their lives changing the world often experience hardships. These hardships will make you who you are, these hardships are lessons. There is more than one way to change the world, and if your heart is calling you to a specific area, you must not be afraid to follow it. You should, however, be aware that it will not be easy, but also that nothing worthwhile ever is. Following your heart means nourishing your soul.

  • To Be A Leader Your Values & Way Of Life Have To Reflect That of The Whole

“I stand out because my values and way of life reflect those of the society to which I am honoured to belong.” 

This is what a real president does, and this is representative of a real democracy. Today, leaders of various countries do not represent and reflect the values of their society, but rather serve the corporations and big financial institutions that pay them. The corporate control over government policy and various government initiatives is nearly absolute at this point and it is truly terrifying.

Current presidential candidate Bernie Sanders also brought up this fact in a recent debate with Hillary Clinton. You can read more about that and watch it here.

A real leader represents their country, not their sponsors.

  • Happiness Is An Inside Job

“Either you’re happy with very little, free of all that extra luggage, because you have happiness inside, or you don’t get anywhere! I am not advocating poverty. I am advocating sobriety.” 

This is a common philosophy here at Collective Evolution. As yourself, are your ‘wants’ really your own, or have they been programmed into you via mass marketing? So many people continue to search for happiness in material wealth, only to find it and realize that such external factors can only provide a temporary sense of happiness. We are constantly searching outside of ourselves to feel good or to experience joy or a sense of relaxation. While there are tools out there that can help you to achieve these states, I believe real joy begins within you. True happiness is experienced from a place that has nothing to do with material wealth or external possessions. If you are chasing these things, you can expect the chase to continue for the rest of your life — or at least until you confront your inner demons.

“But since we have invented a consumer society, the economy must constantly grow. If it fails to increase, it’s a tragedy. We have invented a mountain of superfluous needs. Shopping for new, discarding the old… that’s a waste of our lives! When I buy something, when you buy something, you’re not paying money for it. You’re paying with the hours of life you had to spend earning that money. The difference is that life is one thing money can’t buy.”

  • It Doesn’t Have To Be This Way

Today, most of the world’s resources are accumulated in the hands of a very small group of elite, also known as the ‘1 percent.’ They own everything, and the quote below basically explains why this need not be the case. The world has been overtaken by greed, ego, and a lack of care for our fellow human being. We must return to our hearts if we are to move forward as a race.

“Uruguay is a small country, and we don’t have a presidential jet. We don’t especially care to have one. From France we decided to buy a very expensive helicopter, a rescue helicopter with surgical facilities, to stand by in a remote area. Instead of buying a presidential jet, we got a helicopter that will be posted in central Uruguay to rescue accident victims, and offer ongoing emergency medical services. It’s so easy! Do you see a dilemma? A president jet, or a rescue chopper?” 

Get the point? He then goes on to say:

“It always comes down to that. It seems to me to be a question of sobriety. I’m not suggesting we go back to living in caves or straw huts. Not at all. That’s not the idea. What I do recommend is that we stop wasting resources on useless things, on luxurious houses that require six servants to maintain. . . . We can live much more modestly. We can spend our resources on things that are really important for everyone. That’s the real meaning of democracy, the meaning that politicians have lost. . . . In Germany, they escorted me with 25 BMW motorcycles, they put me in a Mercedes-Benz, with doors that weighted 3 tons because of the armoring. What good is any of that?” 

It is dismaying, to say the least, that the money spent on one specific US military program alone — the building of fighter jets for example — could basically alleviate world hunger. That allocation of the resources on our planet is so ludicrous, I don’t really believe I even need to go into a discussion about it.

“It’s not a lack of resources. It’s a lack of governance. Governments are preoccupied with winning the next election, with who’s going to be boss. We fight for power… and we forget people and world issues. The crisis is not environmental. It’s political.” 

  • A Planetary Consensus Is Needed If We Are To Move Forward As A Human Race

“Our civilization has reached a phase where we need a planetary consensus, and we are looking away from it. We are blinded by chauvinism and by the thirst for domination, especially the most powerful countries. They should be setting an example! It is shameful that for 25 years, since the Kyoto Accords, we are still dragging our feet to take basic measures. It is shameful. Man may very well be the only animal capable of self-destruction.”

This is something I have felt for years, which is why I was so thrilled to come across a platform like Collective Evolution. It represents, for me, that part of humanity that wants to move forward as one human race; it represents the urgency I feel within my own heart to come together as a collective and make change happen. We need to re-birth our human experience, and in doing so we must inevitably go through birthing pains. Through this metaphor it becomes clear why we have such difficulty letting go of the norm and embracing change in our own lives.

That being said, having worked in this field for several years now, I can say with certainty that the planetary consensus is strong and no doubt growing by the day. Our potential is truly remarkable, and we have yet to even comprehend how much we are capable of achieving.

Why ‘Conspiracy Theories’ & Spirituality Are Intimately Connected

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    Refusing to understand how our world truly functions and simply calling exploration into this as 'negative' is a common spiritual bypass. The elite/cabal is here for a reason, we must understand that.

  • Reflect On:

    Why do we find ourselves calling conspiracies negative or something we should not talk about? Why do we refuse to face some of the 'darker' things inside, or even outside, of ourselves?

Is it considered ‘not spiritual’ to talk about an elite or cabal running our world? This has become a commonplace today, and there is a great deal of ridicule that comes when people feel looking at the truth of what is playing out in our world is ‘crazy’ or a ‘negative’ thing to do. In fact, the ‘negative’ label on conspiracy theories we place is one of the biggest spiritual bypasses we can do. Let’s dive into this.

The truth is, understanding the way our world truly functions and consciousness evolution (spirituality) go hand in hand. Why? Because it is all part of life here. It is not separate! You don’t have spirituality on one side and conspiracies or truth on the other. It’s all interconnected in our life and human experience. And it’s time to bring them together.

Note: I did an amazing CE Podcast episode on this subject you can listen to here. It goes even deeper into the subject than this article.

The Challenge

This isn’t true 100% of the time of course, but in a lot of cases, we see those in the truth-seeking realm feel consciousness or spirituality is airy fairy and has no place in the big picture and is just a new age distraction. On the flip side, we see those engaged in spirituality-seeking feel conspiracy/truth-seeking people are crazy and negative. While there is truth to some extent in both cases, there is a lot more to the discussion and a very important purpose for both.

You’ve probably experienced it at some point, it’s believable that GMO’s are unhealthy and corporations are using them to make money in a number of ways but it’s damaging to people and the environment, but yet there is no possible way that’s happening with vaccines… or that 9/11 was an inside job. Let me be the first to say, there are a number of conspiracy theories that have no backing, no facts, are far-reaching and in many cases don’t even help us along our journey. But this is not the case with many, in fact, the amount of evidence is often staggering and it’s simply that we don’t want to believe it.

I’m writing this because I’m calling for an end of the reduction of conversation to ‘that’s crazy’ ‘that’s fake news’ ‘that’s a conspiracy’ etc. as it does nothing but maintain division, a lack of awareness and a misinformed world that can’t thrive. Time and time again what is often called ‘conspiracy’ turns out to be true only a few months or a year later. We can end this cycle by learning and choosing to listen instead of dismissing, then checking in with our hearts/souls about what role this is playing in our experience so we can dissolve the need for the cabal.

Why They Go Hand In Hand

Some of us view spirituality as learning techniques to feel good, as ways to cope with life and the challenges we have in our modern world. Some view it as a means to begin to feel better about the prospect of death. Others view it as a way to explore what’s beyond the physical and who we truly are.

From a conspiratorial side, when we’re talking about digging past mainstream media to find out what’s really going on in our world, some view it as a way to disempower the elite that does not have humanities best interests at heart. Others view it as a way to take back our power. Some see it as a way to uncover the truth of how our world truly works so we can begin to thrive. Some react to these truths with wanting revenge or justice, this is an important thing to note as this is where the spirituality comes in.

So it appears we have ‘two sides’ as we often like to do within ego states of consciousness. But what role does the elite and cabal play in our experience? How has that served to suppress our spirituality and why has it all happened? The two are intimately connected because part of the game we are playing on earth here is that we have to uncover what has been happening in our reality and remember who we truly are. This is a spiritual journey, that involves understanding the players in the game and the roles they play.

I’ve been running a conscious media and education company for 9.5 years now. Our mission is to bridge the gap between truth-seeking and spirituality via exploring a shift in consciousness taking place on our planet. We understand that both are part of one big picture in life and you can only go so far in each before you MUST bring in the other to deepen your understanding.

During the 9.5 years since I started Collective Evolution, I have seen thousands of people go through various stages of discovering and learning, both in truth-seeking and spirituality, that has sent them on different paths. Some begin to discover our food system is rigged for a lack of health and they begin eating cleaner. This leads them to understand our entire world is ‘rigged against us’ and suddenly there is a shift in how they see the world. I have seen others attend a yoga class and this begins a journey into connecting with self deeply.

But in both cases, I often see an identity form. The yogi becomes identified as a ‘spiritual person,’ dresses a certain way, talks a certain way and may refuse to look at anything the ‘truth-seekers’ are saying because they don’t want to fall into that crowd. The truth-seekers are often angry, pissed off at the world, call everyone else sheeple and think the elite need to die in prisons. They might look at the ‘yogi’ or ‘spiritual’ crowd as having fallen into pseudo-scientific new age deception because they look at consciousness and spirituality.

Then there are those who have journeyed beyond that stage and are simply authentic and understand how both ingredients, truth-seeking and spirituality, are one in the same and part of the journey. They are both a part of this game we call life and if we truly want to evolve, move forward, remove the cabal and so forth, we must see the truth and learn why it was there in the first place for our own evolution in consciousness.

The video below explores the role the elite/cabal play in our spiritual journey.

It’s A Role!

Remember, what the cabal and elite are doing isn’t negative in the big picture scheme of things. To our mind it might be, but not to our souls. This is why you must connect deeply with self to overcome the vengeful hateful view the mind creates when we observe them.

What they are doing simply is. And for our souls, it is the journey we asked for to challenge ourselves to remember who we truly are in a very disconnected system. The cabal, are just souls having an experience too, and we all agreed on this together. This doesn’t mean we accept what they are doing in the physical and just take it, no, it simply means we must evolve our consciousness and overcome the need for them for it to stop.

How does that look or happen? We must understand why it’s there by going beyond the judgement and the emotion and see what the trap it creates for us. With that understanding, we no longer can get trapped in the angry, hateful emotions that hold this world in place and instead we choose, from a consciousness point of view, to create a different world. This not only affects collective consciousness and helps others awaken, but we then now can create a new world, both physically and consciously, that comes from a higher state of consciousness and not one that is built in fear, anger and judgement of the old one. Remaining in that old state will only create more of the same world.

Again, I feel it is very important to listen to the podcast episode on this one as it goes into deep detail about this.

Final Thoughts

If you find yourself viewing matters in either of these polarized lights, challenge yourself to ask why? Why have this opposition to either side and why are we coloring things as positive or negative in the first place? What is that showing us about ourselves? Our fear of looking at our own ‘darkness?’ Collective ‘darkness?’ In many ways, what the elite/cabal are doing is just a reflection of our own journeys on a macro scale. It’s reflecting humanity’s current state of consciousness as we awaken to the truth. Change Starts Within.

Who Lucifer Actually Is & Why They Are Here (Part 1)

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    Lucifer is etymologically defined as the 'light bearer' and 'morning star', the bringer of light and wisdom. Yet Lucifer is also widely considered as the embodiment of pure 'evil.'

  • Reflect On:

    How can we come to understand Lucifer in a way that reconciles the apparent contradictions about who he is? It's time we view their role in a neutral light to begin to understand their purpose in our reality.

Of all subjects to venture into, writing about Lucifer could be among the most contentious of them all. Many readers will likely come into the discussion with pre-conceived notions and emotional triggers that are difficult to lay aside, even just for the amount of time it takes to read this article. But put them aside we must, if we are to have a fruitful conversation.

I am not out to convince anybody about an opinion. I am out to elaborate upon an understanding of who and what Lucifer is that I find best explains the entire body of information that is out there about him. Further, this explanation resonates the most with the paradigm I currently hold about spirituality and my understanding about why we are here on the planet at this time.

Some of my information comes from a forum thread between a self-proclaimed “generational member of a Ruling Bloodline Family,” and forum members who pose questions to the person going under the moniker ‘Hidden-Hand.’ I found this information particularly, ahem, illuminating.

Context

A general understanding that I work with about our life here on the planet is that we have incarnated into this ‘3rd density’ reality to evolve, individually and collectively, to the 4th and higher densities. David Wilcock and others speak about our ascension into the 4th density as an event that was slated around the end of the Mayan calendar in December 2012, and remains imminent, as he speaks about in his book The Ascension Mysteries.

This ascension of our individual and group souls, unfolding in accordance with astrological cycles that our solar system is tied into, is the quintessential spiritual ‘movement’ of all sentient beings in our universe, whether they are focusing on their own advances up through the densities, ending in a return to oneness with the supreme creator, or holding themselves back by choice to help other beings rise out of those lower densities. This is the ‘game’ that has been set up, to give life its vitality, direction, and purpose.

Creation

A very simple way to explain how ‘Creation’ works within this context will help in our understanding of who Lucifer is. Basically, the one ‘Supreme Creator’ did not create all there is as such. The one ‘Supreme Creator’ created many ‘sub-creators.’ A sub-creator (also known as a ‘logos’) could then create ‘sub-sub-creators.’ In other words, there is something of a hierarchy or ‘chain’ of creation that goes from the unmanifest ‘Supreme Creator’ all the way down to us as individual souls, who are also ‘creators’ in our own right. Simply stated, there are creator-beings who are creators of planets, suns, galaxies, and even universes.

When asked who directly created us, Hidden-Hand replies thusly:

Your Creator, the one you have called ‘Yahweh’, is not “God” inasmuch as your bible refers to him as being “the One True God”. He is ‘a’ Creator (or Sub-Sub-Logos) rather than the One Infinite Creator. He is not even a Galactic level Logos, but rather, is the Planetary Logos for this one planet.

Stay with me now. If we can entertain the possibility that creation is multi-leveled, and that at the ‘planetary’ level the ‘creator’ of a planet has free will to create as they choose, then the stories we hear from the book of Genesis take on far more meaning. Apparently, Yahweh decided to create a nice planet that was somewhat of a paradise, because essentially evil didn’t exist there and the human beings lived in a state of reverence and obedience towards Yahweh, who was providing humans all they needed.

Nonetheless, in the absence of conflict, challenge, or stress, neither the humans nor Yahweh himself were evolving towards reunion with ‘Supreme Creator,’ which as we previously mentioned is the ‘game’ that we all signed up for. Humans did not have any ‘free will’ because in the absence of evil in their world things were ‘all good’ and they had nothing to choose from.

Enter Lucifer.

Lucifer  

According to Hidden-Hand, Lucifer (the ‘light-bearer’) is an advanced 6th-density being (or ‘group soul’) that agreed to descend into 3rd density on planet Earth to provide the ‘context’ by which human beings could experience free choice. That context was made possible by the introduction of ‘evil.’ In the face of ‘evil’ humans would for the first time be able to choose ‘good’ over something else.

Hidden-Hand describes how polarity and the presence of evil first came into mankind’s experience:

Yahweh agreed that we would introduce the concept of Free Will to Earth’s inhabitants, by offering them an initial choice, as to whether they ‘wanted’ it or not. Hence, “The Tree of the Knowledge of ‘Good and Evil'” (or more accurately, the Knowledge of Polarity, of Positive or Negative).

Yahweh takes his inhabitants to a new ‘garden’ and tells them you can do anything you like, except this one thing, thus creating the desire to do the one thing there are told they cannot. Hence, a “Choice”. We provide the Catalyst by telling them the benefits of attaining Knowledge, they eat from the tree, and the rest is history.

Hence Lucifer ‘tempts’ humanity into polarity, as polarity is the one context through which knowledge can be acquired. In essence, Lucifer has agreed to play a very challenging role on our planet in order to be a catalyst for our evolution into the higher densities.

Not An Endorsement Of Luciferianism

If you are still with me, you undoubtedly agree that conversations like this require a high level of discernment between what is being said and what is not being said. While Lucifer has so far been characterized as a highly evolved bringer of light and knowledge, for example,  there has been no support given to the principles or the practice of Luciferianism or the ‘Luciferian Doctrine.’ I hope you will rejoin me when we deal with those concepts in Part 2.

New Moon In Gemini: New Perceptions & Ideas

Published

on

We are having a New Moon in Gemini on June 13th, 2018 at 7:43 pm Universal Time. This is initiating a 29.5 Lunar cycle and a new wave of energy for the coming month. This cycle will peak at the Full Moon which is occurring on June 27th/28th.

The Solstice will also occur during this period (June 21st) which is when we have the longest day of the year in the Northern Hemisphere and the shortest day of the year in the Southern Hemisphere. Solstices (and Equinoxes) initiate the transition into seasons as well as signs in the Tropical Zodiac.

At this Solstice, we are shifting from Gemini season into Cancer season. The signs of the Tropical Zodiac are distributed equally based on the Earth-Sun relationship and are not supposed to be aligned with constellations like many people believe. This was established and determined nearly 2000 years ago by the historical astronomer/astrologer Ptolemy and other astrologers at that time.

New Moon In Gemini

We have been in Gemini season since May 20th/21st with its ruler Mercury also in Gemini since May 29th. This is sign belongs to the Element of Air which is socially and mentally oriented, and is also a mutable sign which has adaptable and spreadable qualities.

Gemini’s energy is curious, communicative, articulate, informative, clever, and dualistic. It can also be gossipy, superficial, and inconsistent. Although the majority of this Moon cycle will be occurring while the Sun is in Cancer, the Gemini energy is imprinted onto it, especially influencing the first two weeks up until the next Full Moon.

In the weeks leading to this New Moon, the Gemini Sun, Mercury, and previous Full Moon have been in a hard square with Neptune. There may have been some confusion, scatteredness, miscommunications, or issues with communication technology, especially around June 5th/6th and near the Full Moon from May 28th-30th.

The Neptune energy is behind us, although its effects may still be lingering, we are now in a period in which Mercury is traveling ahead of the Sun (began after June 5th). We can have a new sense of clarity in which our minds are more aligned with our true needs, and any of the issues mentioned above can be more easily resolved. It is also possible that some of the clarity or resolutions that we experience now may be connected to themes that have been occurring or on our minds since April 1st or even prior.

Mercury Newly In Cancer, Sextile Uranus, Square Chiron, and Opposite Saturn

Just under 24 hours prior to this New Moon, Mercury enters Cancer where it will be until June 28th/29th.  Cancer is ruled by the Moon while Gemini is ruled by Mercury, therefore these heavenly bodies are in each other’s signs. This is called a ‘mutual reception’ which is a harmonious configuration between them. Communications and perceptions can become more feeling based, sensitive, personal, and subjective during this time. Our thinking can be more reflective and aligned with what we feel at the gut level, however, since Cancer is a Cardinal sign, decision making can still be quick.

Mercury is in a tight sextile with Uranus in Taurus which gets strong as it enters Cancer and on the day of this New Moon. It will also be imprinted in the lunar cycle. Communications and thinking can be innovative, exciting, unconventional, liberating, or could involve Uranus ruled areas of technology and metaphysics. Insight, intuition, and great ideas can be stimulated by this configuration. It could be connected to a different way of thinking when it comes to values, money, or how we approach our routines. This New Moon is also in a wide sextile with Uranus which emphasizes the themes mentioned above.

Mercury is in a square with Chiron in Aries on this day as well while moving towards an opposition with Saturn. Wounds and blockages may be tied to thoughts and communications. and perhaps needing to get real about issues that are inhibiting. On June 14th-15th (16th in the East), Mercury opposing Saturn peaks which at best can be good for applying mental discipline. However, we can also face restrictions, delays, and or we can more easily become negative in our thoughts and words.

Venus Going Into Leo, Square Uranus

At the time of this New Moon, Venus is at the very end of Cancer and transitions into Leo a few hours later. It had been there since May 19th, a time during which Venus-ruled areas of relationships and social interactions have been more personal and have a nurturing or bonding quality. Venus being in Leo until July 9th can be more romantic, dramatic, fun, and creative. Social initiatives can be more self-expressive. Anything to do with aesthetics and beauty at this time can be more flashy or have more flair.

Venus is in a square which is strongest in the days following this lunation while some of the Mercury aspects mentioned above are happening. At best, this can bring excitement and new experiences, both socially and romantically, and can be impulsive. However, it can also be disruptive and separative. Depending on how it is hitting your natal astrology chart, instability in different types of relationships can be a theme during the coming weeks, and in some cases, the potential manifestations mentioned can play out in the realm of finances.

Mars And Neptune Going Retrograde

Mars is slowing down to go retrograde which will begin on June 26th. Mars retrogrades occur roughly every 2 years and last 2 months and are when it appears to be moving backward due to our vantage point. Ultimately it is a time in which we go through a process that allows us to make adjustments in how we assert and take action in our lives, in many cases sexually as well. Anger and aggression through us or around us can be heightened due to increased inner tension. However, we will be in a better place with a better approach in the weeks following August 27th as Mars slowly moves forward again.

I will be creating more content on this Mars retrograde as we get closer. You can join my mailing list here to be notified of when new work is published.

Currently, Neptune appears nearly stopped as it is also about to go retrograde, beginning on June 18th/19th and will last until November 24th/25th. Unlike Mars, Neptune and the other outer planets are retrograde roughly 40% of the time and therefore it doesn’t have the same significance. However, its transitions in motion are when we can notice it the most.

Neptune themes may be highlighted at this time and we may be reflecting on or revisiting things associated with this planet. It rules creativity, imagination, visual arts, film/photography, fantasy, dreams, spirituality, divinity, compassion, as well as practices and substances that induce psychedelic experiences. Neptune is also associated with escapism, drugs, alcohol, and behavior that is flaky, delusional and deceptive. It can also be confusing and lack definition. Whatever Neptune related stuff that is coming up at this time or in recent weeks, will have some sort of concluding factor or significant development when the retrograde ends in late November.

Making Intentions And Things To Consider

What was occurring around June 5th/6th and how do you need to proceed forward in your life based on your thoughts, communications, and whatever else has been happening at that time? What aspect of your thinking, perception, and communication needs to be improved on? Do you need to be more versatile and adaptable?

It is possible that certain initiatives and actions you are working towards could face some challenges and frustrations over the coming months, beginning with this Lunar cycle… Considering this, it could be a good idea to set an intention to receive clear guidance and signs from the Universe on the best way to apply yourself to minimize this.

These are just some examples, however, it is good to reflect on anything else that is coming up for you at this time.  It is generally best to make any intentions within the first 24 hours following a New Moon. However, in this specific case, the first 17 hours would be best and can be as early as 30 minutes prior to the exact moment of it which is the most ideal. This New Moon will be occurring at 7:43 pm Universal Time. You can click here to see what that is in your time zone.
