Sedona, Arizona, Tara Greene October 2019 Photo by Iala Jaggs
One of my favourite artists is surrealist Max Ernst. Max Ernst lived in Sedona Arizona in the 1940’s after dreaming of its surreal red rock landscape since he was a boy in Germany. Sedona called me to live there too. It is my spiritual home. I have always loved art. I told my mother when I was nine years old that I was going to be an artist. I loved to draw and write poems, I was taking dance lessons all the time since I was five years old. I sang and did pantomime shows.
I knew that being an artist gave me a license to be free. I went to a Technical high school to major in Art. It was very rigorous, all afternoon was life drawing, photography, commercial arts, ceramics, interior design, marketing, we had to go to…

Tuesday, April 20th, a jury found a white cop “guilty of murder” for killing George Floyd, an African-American citizen, after a 17-year-old recorded a live video of the murder that occurred on May 25, 2020. Watching the video is a painful experience that fills us with rage, impotence and sadness. Among all the injustices that occur in the world every second, it seemed to confront us with an uncomfortable and very concrete reality: the abuse of some people representing the institutions that supposedly are there to protect us, and of course, the humanity of it all. The verdict affects many people around the world as it provokes a feeling of “at last.” When the Sun entered the sign of Taurus to join Mercury, Venus, and Uranus in the sign of the Bull, something provokes the feeling that perhaps this brings the possibility of a change (Uranus), a small step toward…

Summary : a Thor’s Hammer at this time involving Mars (peregrine), Pluto, and Vesta is a cause for concern regarding an event involving collectives such as military, police, or allied health. This pattern at this time may signal a mass casualty on or near this date.
Here is the horary version of the Vernal Equinox 2021 chart. I offer this first because it points out that Mars (part of the pattern) is also (1) peregrine (an unfavorable position, a “thief” of sorts) and (2) opposite the “Part of Fatality.”

The Thor’s Hammer is associated with explosions, mining disasters, airplane crashes, and train wrecks. Maybe the most notably example in recent decades is found in the birth chart of Adam Lanza (see, also this entry), the

“Heʻe wahine ka lani” (the chief was surfing as graceful as a woman) – Magicseaweed
She is being freed from the shackles and bonds,
All which held her under heel, for so long …
She is learning to totally let go of the past,
All which no longer serves her highest soul growth and good,
All which is still keeping her in the Old Earth.
She is moving in the highest loving Grace,
Of true forgiveness,
And is filled with the immense power of Unconditional love.
She is rising.
She is flourishing.
She is inspired.
She is allowing herself to step into her new form – her new embodiment
With awe and wonder,
Embracing the miracle of a total rebirth,
As the Old shell of the old embodiment is shed,
And the New and much Higher Dimensional Embodiment forms in and around her.
She is no longer taking anything personally,
Knowing that every soul she encounters is but a reflection of her own face,
And more than this, is part and particle of the Creator,
As much as she is.
She is embracing her own Divinity,
And thus finds the Divinity reflected in every soul she meets,
And encounters and interacts with –
For the Divine is ever present within every soul
And within every encounter there are hidden diamonds and nuggets of Gold,
For every encounter holds within it the Power of unconditional love.
She is dancing the Celestial dance of the Music of the Spheres,
Of Unity and Oneness,
As she embraces her own Galactic Heritage,
For her soul is Universal
And she embraces her own Goddess hood,
And with exuberance.
She knows she is now stepping into a totally new creation,
And it fills her with wonder and awe.
She loves exploring, experiencing, and getting to know
A totally new life and new existence.
She is ever fully present in every moment’s unfolding,
Knowing that with every thought she thinks,
Every word she speaks.
Every action she takes.
She is co-creating her new existence
And that indeed the New Golden Age
In the New Earth.
She is taking responsibility for everything she creates.
As she now stands in the fullness of her Soul Mastery
For She knows who and what she in truth is,
And she embraces her own Divinity
And lives this from the depths of her heart and soul
And all that she in truth is
And was created to be.
She stands in the fullness and glory of her own truth,
Knowing that in her new regained freedom
She is more than enough,
Just the way she is.
She is singing the songs of her soul
And as they reverberate outwards
From the Center of her Sacred heart,
Her songs are touching the heart and soul strings
Of all she encounters …
And they, in turn, are now tuning in
And allowing their own soul songs
Until all becomes one song
She is filled with gratitude
And is thanking the Divine
For every moment of being alive
And for the opportunity
To create a new and balanced, harmonic,
Joyful and beautiful new life for herself
In much higher dimension
And much higher vibrational state.
She is tapping into the infinite knowing of her own soul
And all the knowledge Her soul has gathered from all lifetimes,
Parallel lives and universes,
And she gifts this to herself and others.
She is embracing the Power of Love.
She is living life and Life more abundantly.
As the Living Waters of Life
Are pouring through her.
She is radiant.
She is beautiful – inside and out.
She is the New Creation.
She is the New Earth.
She is the New Golden Age.
She has come.
She is here.
She is Love.
The Samadhi guided meditation series is a practical way to realize Samadhi in your life. It is only through deep inquiry into the self that one will truly understand what the film Samadhi points towards. Whether you are getting started in meditation, or you are interested in deepening your meditation practice, this series of guided meditations is designed to cultivate the concentration and equanimity needed to realize Samadhi. The parts are not separate meditation techniques, but part of one evolving, continuously deepening practice of observing the breath. Traditionally Samadhi is realized through deep meditation. If you want to realize Samadhi it is necessary to move beyond intellectual understanding to direct experience.
In this series of guided meditations, it is important to have the correct relationship to the instructions in the guided meditation. The meditative technique of focusing on the breath must be understood as simply a way to divert energy from the mind, and to bring consciousness deep into the unconscious aspects of your being. The technique is not something to add to your mind or self structure. Any technique is a “thorn to remove a thorn”, so you must be willing to let it go once it has served its purpose. As you move closer to Samadhi there is less mind, less technique, and less self, until there is a cessation of all activities of the self structure. This cessation of self is Samadhi, and in that stillness the dawning of wisdom or prajna is possible.
The series is available for free: http://www.samadhi.ca/Media.html
March 10 the PISCES SUN and NEPTUNE conjunct 7:01 pm EST at 20+ PISCES
This is an annual, literally enlightening event. You do want to take advantage of what can be referred to as a NEPTUNE CAZIMI Neptune sitting in the heart of the SUN. This beckons all of us like a moth to the flame. It is the heart of compassion, like Mother Mary or JESUS the symbol of PISCES, or Qwan Yin.
NEPTUNE is the planet of spirituality. For so many dealing with death, a reminder that no one ever dies. Because we’re all eternal souls who return back to source energy, to spirit. We can all reconnect with those spirits and angels especially as Sun Neptune join.
We return to source energy, of compassion, DREAMS, forgiveness, psychic intuition, dreamwork, imagination, creativity, non-boundaries, limitlessness, endings, karma, mental illness, self-sabotage, addictions, oil, and institutions, Glamour, Hollywood…

What is Hawaiian Pidgin? Is it “broken English” or something else? For many people visiting Hawaii, they might think that the local language is not proper. In this video, Avi Penhollow explains what Pidgin is and how our views about language are shaped – many times in ways that are harmful.
Avi is a researcher in language and literacy, and for several years he worked in Wai’anae on the west coast of O’ahu. His first full encounter with Hawaiian pidgin was on his first day doing his laundry at “Da Wash Spot” in Makaha. There he met an auntie who showed him much aloha and talked for about an hour. Avi left realizing he only understood about half of the conversation. But over time, as he worked with his students and lived in the Wai’anae community – he began to learn much more about not just Pidgin, but the history and culture of Hawai’i. This video could not have been made without the love and support of the Kamaile ohana and kumus who supported the work.
This video was created for a class Avi was taking during his masters program. It was never meant to be public. His plan was to remake it into a short documentary film, but until then – this is what we have. If you are da kine, please know that the haole that produced this video respects your language and life. His goal is to spread the word to all those who do not know about the history and culture. There are mistakes in here for sure. Avi knows that he doesn’t get everything right – because that would take a lifetime. Mahalo nui loa for all those visiting and sharing your aloha in the comments.
Mahalo to Andy Bumatai for his mana’o from “The Daily Pidgin Show.” Please visit his channel: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list…
The beautiful song “Hawai’i Aloha” you hear in this video comes from the Mana Maoli and can be found on the “Playing for Change” channel: https://youtu.be/uDa0YmZD0Jk
D.C. is fenced off and the President is never going back to the White House. But not for reasons you may be thinking.
Fear not, there will be a new capitol built and an end to income taxes paid to the tax collectors of the Corporation that is now in the hands of a new administration. They went to all the trouble to steal a corporation whose assets are in the process of being seized. Most did not see this coming for they did not even know their nation was a Corporation. But, it is indeed but now, no more are the states subject to it. Please read on to understand the nature of the battle we are in.

“We have noted that positive effects have been felt immediately by listeners however we recommend a break of at least one hour between each session.”
With such popular demand over the last year and numerous requests to do so; we have focused our full attention on producing yet another soundtrack with such delicate yet precise frequencies concentrated directly and solely at the Pineal Gland. Many claim that healing, detoxing or decalcifying the Pineal Gland to be so utterly essential in preparations of the opening of the third eye and we have addressed this head-on with everything in our technological audio advances to do so. As we understand, “Fluoride is everywhere, and so the calcification of the mind is apparent everywhere we look, it is unavoidable as such is the modern world. We can either combat this with a phenomenally strict diet or break away the toxins from the Pineal Gland altogether using strong frequencies, frequencies such as the ones used in this audio track. Please wear headphones for optimal results and sit or lie comfortably, preferably with the eyes closed.”
For best results we recommend listening to this track at least once per week. You will notice positive results within 3 times of listening to this track, however we recommend a break of at least one hour between each session.
Listen to this audio track as much as you feel comfortable, either sitting or lying in a comfortable position. Headphones are generally advised when listening to meditation music to avoid distractions – but not essential.
What’s the point? The point is this: “things” could go “boom” next week. While I would be surprised to see another ice storm, I wouldn’t be surprised to see another natural disaster or an escalation in the Middle East that turns into a (hot) war.
I still believe that, if Hillary Clinton had been elected, we would have been in a “hot” war, and maybe nuclear weapons might have been used with the dire consequences that they bring.
Regardless of what you think of him, Donald J. Trump DID keep us out of a war, despite being close to them at times.
The location of Biden’s Moon, and several other factors in both Biden and Harris’ charts, lead me to believe that this administration will lead us into a “hot” war.
The chart for March 4th of 2021, at the time of the Mercury / Jupiter conjunction, has what…

These guided meditations are not from any particular tradition, but could be seen as reflecting the perennial teaching inherent to many traditions. They have been created to help convey the practice that will lead to Samadhi, which is realization of your true nature beyond this limited form. Integral to this ancient form of meditation is the cultivating of the skills of concentration and inner surrender (mindfulness), which has been shown to have many side benefits such as reduction of stress, increased attention and cognitive abilities, increased compassion, tolerance, creativity, emotional intelligence, self awareness, ability to break addictions, and a variety of health benefits. As we move through the practices we move from shorter periods of meditation to longer periods, and we move from using techniques to choiceless awareness. We move from mind fullness to mind emptiness, and to realizing the non-dual state or the Samadhi state which is beyond fullness and emptiness.
This meditation series is divided into 3 parts; beginner, intermediate and advanced, going progressively deeper into meditation and self inquiry. We will start by narrowly focusing on the breath, which will help to cultivate presence and equanimity. Once you have practiced the beginner meditations and you are able to stay with the breath at the nostrils for long periods of time, you can move to the intermediate meditations where we start to observe the entire field of changing phenomena throughout the body. Once you have practiced the intermediate meditations and are able to be with the field of changing phenomena, you can move to the advanced meditations where we will start to observe consciousness itself. These meditations can be seen as preparation for the longer 1 hour meditations in the Samadhi Guided Meditation Series. https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list…
Practice in a comfortable position, sitting on a cushion, chair or meditation bench and make sure your spine is straight. Rest your hands in whatever position you like. Once you have found a comfortable position, make an intention to stay in that position for the whole meditation without shifting or moving. The eyes can be open or closed. If they are too open you may become distracted, and if fully closed your meditation may become foggy or dull. So adjust your practice accordingly so that your meditation is vivid and lucid.

If you peer into the deep reaches of time and space to glimpse the universe when it was just a few billion years old, you’ll see an ancient era populated by many massive galaxies. Simulations suggest these galactic behemoths must have been fed by cold gas in dark matter filaments—structures that make up the cosmic web that connects galaxies in the universe—but the nature of these gas infusions has remained murky in the absence of direct observations.

This lunation is also active. Similar to the recent New Moon, the chart for this FM shows it has a Thor’s Hammer (potential for violence, explosions, or other disasters). The chart also has a Yod, a clear indicator that many of us will face an important decision this weekend, continuing into early March (and possibly beyond).
The 7th Harmonic and 5th Harmonic activity is so pronounced that at least a few of you will produce works of genius this weekend. That crazy idea from a few weeks ago? Go back and look at it now. You might see something special!
This Full Moon occurs on a weekend, and with the Thor’s Hammer (Fist of God) some of you will be accident prone or may get into fights. Please be careful at this time. If someone attempts to provoke you, walk away!
