A Message from the Wolves

We speak from the wilderness where we live in many hidden places. Along with us, the whales, dolphins, and coyotes also sing. We send these messages to help you and the world.

It is a strong moon, preceding the motion of the life force, which moves upward in February, marking the period before spring. The light is succinct now—and its messages can be absorbed by those who are open and long to create. For hundreds of years, your dreams have remained dormant because of specific causes and the weight of the outer world. (It is changing, and these forces are currently minimized for those who truly want to awaken.)

On this planet, the weight of the world is heavy, causing duality and polarity. In ancient times such as Egypt and other locations with pyramids and other locations, it is known you could use your light and power, achieving manifestations that are now thought impossible.

We will simply say a great deal more is possible than what you think. Make your search in life revolve around the discovery of the inner self, listening to your heart, and thinking about what could be—particularly if there were harmony in the world. Think of how you would experience it and see it.

A few of the changes—and there are many of them—include:

  1. The waves of energy, which come to our planet, are changing. It is possible to use them to create health, abundance, happiness—and more importantly to visualize and create a world that is in alignment with nature through your inner power.
  2. The geography of the planet is changing, partially from pollution and partially because the earth is awakening. Your physical environment is in the process of developing a different energy. It is possible to align, which is energizing, uplifting, and hopeful.
  3. Many aspects of your existence such as structures of how the world works (and is believed to work) are ending. Endings and beginnings are part of one another. It is possible to awaken abilities, which existed in the past and to move into new abilities and gifts.
  4. The songs of animals, plants, the woods, and the water are slightly changing, and they can be more easily heard on the inner plane. You can ask to absorb and understand these vibrations.
  5. It is possible to feel and benefit from these changes IF you are awakening, visualizing, and seeking higher energies.

We ask you to think about nature, the heart, and who you might become during this time of change. Do not worry about who will feel and move with the change. Focus on your energy, your truth, and your strength. (On your planet, there are many stories of how the earth will change. You can entertain them, but it is far better to improve yourself.)

Only the heart can hear the voice of nature and attune to the unseen world. When you begin to feel this unseen world, you feel possibility. You feel your possibility, and you become happier as there are new options, new feelings, and new outcomes.

Train your mind to see the highest vision. See trees growing tall and wide. See clean, clear streams and oceans. Think of talking to animals, hearing the voice of plants—and thinking or visualizing something and see it materialize almost instantly. Think of the joy and excitement. See this as the harmony you will create.

As you sit or walk outdoors, think of always having abundant energy. Think of your body becoming strong, healthy, and holy as are the forest and infinite ocean. Everything “natural” is here on your planet to help you if you will listen to it, if you will find balance with it, and listen to the voices of the unseen world.


Find Your Way into A New Place of Being

It is important work to reflect on beauty, harmony, and expression of the inner self. From this place, manifestation occurs, appearing when you feel passionate—or in a tranquil state of being. Both sides of the self can work with this paradigm.

How do you find the inner self? By knowing it is there and thinking of it. How do you hear? By listening to the messages of your heart. If you manifested everything that you desired, it would do no good for you or others–unless it comes from this place. When you know what you want because it resonates with your inner truth, you have a wonderful reason for manifesting it. (Otherwise, it is just desire without alignment, which leads you away from the inner self.)

Have faith in your inner power, have faith in the universe, and rediscover your hidden dreams. Imagine that people are healed, happy, and whole. Imagine many awakened people have found the power to manifest joy, abundance, and flowing life force—and imagine whatever you create helps everyone else on the path. Find true generosity.

Whatever is wrong with your life is a message. It’s up to you to rewrite it, to find new ways of seeing your life, and a new pattern of discovering your inner self. The inner self is multi-dimensional, and there is always a part of you – or a part of someone – that can help with creating healing and wholeness in your life. Can you see your life in a new light? Can you rewrite the past?

All of these programs for changing the past, present, and future are written within you. Through meditation and visualization, you can decode them. The answers you seek will flow through you with new waves of energy.

Many people ask how to have more energy, how to feel happier, and how to find meaning in life, but these answers are simple. They begin with the work of meditation, reflection on the heart, observing energy, and believing you can become happy and create another life. No one can do the work besides you–although teachers can help you in putting together the pieces that resonate with your soul.

Why should you do the work? Nothing will ever fit together correctly or beautifully unless you access the wisdom of your inner self.

Full Moon Forecast, Wolf Moon


The Full Moon is a time of heightened energy, renewal, germination, and possibly fulfillment. The Wolf Moon appears on Monday, January 17 at 6:48 pm ET. The chart is predominantly earth, which can feel heavy and dense, but it can help with grounding, thinking about the future, and communing with nature. On Earth, we experience duality, and we can—to some degree—choose how we experience the energy of the various signs and planets.

The first two quarters of 2022 seem to revolve around decisions about how we want to live life, creating an existence that aligns with the inner self, and moving more deeply into awakening in specific ways, which are unique for each of us. There are periods of rest throughout the year. For example, Mercury (thought) and Venus (love) are currently retrograde, providing a period of time to reflect on life and refine our direction and goals.

 Sun (life, light) in Capricorn directs attention to the earthly quest—the way we want to live, including expression and success in the earthly realm.  Sun conjuncts Pluto (subconscious, transmutation), increasing both personal energy and will. The aspect increases the ability to focus the will, transform weaknesses into strength, and intensify our ability to alter “reality”.

Moon (emotion) in Cancer is nourishing and feminine. The sign of Cancer is ruled by the Moon and her element is silver. Cancer rules emotional expression, nurturing, and the power of the sea. It also influences the home, domestic life, and relationships with family.

Moon trines Neptune (mysticism, illusion) heightens imagination, sensitivity, and the desire to escape reality. It can help with artistic pursuits such as seeing and expressing the beauty in life. Moon is in opposition to Pluto (subconscious, transformation) intensifies emotions, drama, and intensity of life. It can cause outbursts—or we can develop greater insight to move through blocks and patterns.

Mercury (thought, communication, electronics) moved retrograde on January 14. Mercury is placed in Aquarius, the sign of the New Age, and it quickens and deepens the mind and intuition, which may can help with the retrograde. Mercury conjuncts Saturn (time, limitation), increasing discipline and the ability to persevere. Mercury squares Uranus (quantum field, sudden change) in Taurus. Uranus rules electronics, and the square can cause nervous tension, excitement, and unexpected events. On the positive, it helps in seeing life from new, different perspectives.

Venus (love, relationships, beauty) remains retrograde in Capricorn, a sign that tends to limit our ability to perceive love. It’s truly about opening to new ways of receiving love and seeing the other person’s point of view. Venus moves direct on January 29, and the energy eases with the possibility of opening to greater love.

Mars in Sagittarius continues to push our consciousness in the direction of the spiritual path. At this point, the spiritual is not only perceiving higher energies but about living life in attunement with higher information and insights. The placement is also about philosophy, teachers, and the spiritual journey as associated with outer life. Mars squares Neptune (mysticism, illusion), meaning it’s difficult to know the next step in our physical journey, and plans for the future may seem baffling or confusing.

Jupiter (good fortune, good luck) in Pisces is exalted, encouraging expansion in life and emphasizing the significance of dreams, manifestation, and the feeling of connection with the unseen world. It magnifies our ability to create “good” in life.

Saturn (limitation, karma) squares Uranus (quantum field, sudden change), continuing the split between different factions in life, the strange motion of electronics and social media. It may reveal the lower aspects of current structures in government and the world.

Uranus (quantum field, sudden change) moves direct on January 18 with a sudden surge of energy. It can give inspiration, open gifts and awareness of the universe. It can also cause nervousness, agitation, and tension. The placement of consciousness dictates the experience of the feeling and emotions, associated with the 10 day period of Uranus direct.

Neptune sextile Pluto encourages a deeper spiritual connection, awakening our inner desire to grow and develop in this way. It strengthens faith and the connection of love and light between individuals who live at a higher vibration.

North Node, which represents the higher collective on an energetic level, moves into Taurus on January 19. It encourages a deeper relationship with earth and correct use of its resources. It may involve examining our personal and global understanding of natural kingdoms—and to work with earth. The South Node, which is thought to involve the lower collective, will move into Scorpio and may reflect the need to use earthly resources correctly by moving into stewardship. Perhaps, it involves balance with abundance, collection of objects, and learning to have a more sustainable relationship with the earth.

Overall, there’s a movement into a period of reflection and planning as we learn how to align more deeply with our spiritual nature and express it in physical form. Venus (love, relationships) and Mercury (mind, communication) are in retrograde as the Moon becomes full.

Several changes occur around the time of the Full Moon. The nodes, representing the low and high energies of the collective, change into Taurus and Scorpio. Uranus moves direct, which is electrical energy with a strong charge. It’s another period of adjustment with existent energies.

It’s a good time for grounding with an emphasis on the earth element. Moon in Cancer increases feminine energy, emotions, and focuses on the home. Jupiter in Pisces helps in creating positive outcomes in life, and Sun conjunct Pluto, brings intensity, power, and energy.

We will work with aspects of the mind, particularly those that may feel confusing. Mars square Neptune makes it difficult to find practical actions when planning our future, and Neptune sextile Pluto acts as a reminder of the importance of the spiritual quest.

Ascension through Sacred Geometry


Article originally appeared in spiritofmaat.com, all rights reserved by author

Thomas Morton was recognized as one of the world’s leaders in the understanding and application of Sacred Geometry. Here, he talked of how, through utilizing sacred geometry, we can create a vortex of energy that acts as our own inner temple. Upon entering that sacred space in meditation, we can access the deep silence, becoming empowered to recognize lower thought forms and ascend in consciousness and being. From there, he taught, we become alchemists, transmuting intent into physical manifestation.

Julia: Just to begin, could you explain for our readers the importance of Sacred Geometry?

Thomas: Most of us who have an interest in Sacred Geometry have a burning desire to understand Creation — to know how everything comes into existence. When we have the desire to understand these things, the path takes us to higher vibrations and frequencies, colors and sounds, as both are one and the same, being but different expression of Energy.

In studying the Sacred Geometry of Creation, we first understand that creation takes place in what is known as “no time and space,” and that it then enters into dimensionality through the intra-dimensional doorway known as the Golden Mean Spiral.

Why do we utilize Sacred Geometry? The purest answer is because it creates for us the frequencies of a controlled place of deep silence, the place of The Silent Watcher, that has no beginning or end. The Golden Mean is the doorway to this place known as “no time and space,” where we can interact with Creation. It is the sacred doorway to the intuitive, the space to where we once again are God in action.

This sacred space is also an environment of a frequency of great understanding within the universal All That Is. En masse, we are creating a tremendous amount of discordant energy on the planet, and in order to again become the Master Presence that we are, we need to cease participating in the thoughts and feelings that give rise to discord. The closer we become to the Creator, the further we move from the analytical mind, and the more we awaken the intuitive mind.

This is our destination: to unlearn, as the Tibetans state it. To once more allow the intuitive to be the directing force, and allow the outer, or analytical, mind to take a step back into its divine plan of carrying out the intuitive.

So the student uses Sacred Geometry to bring in a controlled space for the purpose of entering into the Great Silence, where we then have a choice of which thoughts and feelings we will participate with. The focus and discipline of Sacred Geometry sustains the silent mind. We go into that space in order to send discordant thoughts and feelings into the Light.

Julia: Could you compare the sacred space within a physical temple to the one we create within? How does the sacred space in the physical temple come into being?

Thomas: If we take it as given that there is energy acting within the pyramids and temples, then we might first want to look to the cause of that energy. Every effect has to have a cause, so where does the energy come from?

The greatest source of energy on the earth is electromagnetic energy, energies of outer Creation that actually surround the planet and reside in what is known as the magnetosphere. In essence, the planet is a giant gyro. A solid core that spins faster than the outer shell creates this electromagnetic energy.

It’s important to understand that this energy has the acting energy of the electron, or the intelligent part of the atomic structure.

Seeing this, we can now see that the temples are like antenna to this magnetosphere. They call in a vortex of magnetic energy.

When the electromagnetic energy vortex enters the temple, the electron is split away from the magnetic wave and both are utilized to create three harmonics within the temple itself, and there are in turn three chambers in the Great Pyramid that express these three different frequencies.

The King’s Chamber represents the spiritual, and has the quality of Silence, the place of everything that was, is, and will be.

The Queen’s Chamber is the mental chamber, where for example you could write an equation one mile long and recall it all.

Finally, the catacombs, or the place of the dead, is the place of alchemy, bringing energy into the physical plane or the third dimension. New plant and animal life, for example, could be created here without disharmony, through this great alchemy of love.

So the Great Pyramid represents these three frequencies of energy and the harmonic creation of new forms of life.

Zero point — the controlled space I talked of earlier — is always present in the Great Pyramid. And we also utilize this controlled space in many of the other temples, like Macchu Pichu, that were erected as ascension schools.

The alchemy of creating new forms of life in the ascension temples took place at the time of the solstice, because at the exact moment when the energy switches either from the longest or the shortest day, there is a Zero Point where it was possible to bring these new forms onto the planet harmony with the All That Is.

Likewise, there are three energies or frequencies that are used for creation: Force, Thought (knowing), and Love. In the third dimension, these three aspects of creation are usually experienced as the experience of physicality, mind, and Love. These are the energies that actually surround us in the seen and unseen.

Julia: What about emotional energy?

Thomas: Emotional energy is not noted here because that is simply a combination of feelings and thoughts.

So we can see the representation of Being One with the Universal Creation or All That Is.

But the most important message is that we have a temple within each one of us. All of the great masters have told us of this temple. It is the Temple of the Heart.

All of the great outer ceremonies are simply representational of what we can do and become within. Ascended Master Jesus the Christ said of the miracles he had performed, “All this ye can do, and more.” The true work for each of us is within our own temple.

Julia: How do we create sacred space? How do we apply this in our lives?

Thomas: Sacred space was created before the temples. It is a state of creation itself. We can create sacred space in our own temple. If we pray or meditate in one place regularly, we then create a vortex. By vortex, I mean “spinning energy,” whether it is positive or negative. The personal vortex is also a Golden Mean spiral. The spinning of the chakras creates a doorway into no-time and space. If we can create the doorway, then we have access to the Great Silence.

So we utilize Sacred Geometry to create a sacred space from which to ascend to the point of being Love in Action, in the Now. We can express this ascended God presence in the third dimension by applying or being in the Great Silence. We cannot be generating discord and applying Love divine at the same time. We have to be able to sustain the Love in the Now, and extend it out into the dense world of Creation. The same doorway of the Golden Mean is used in this respect also. We become God in Action.

Julia: What tools do we gain within this sacred space for living in the dense or physical world?

Thomas: The ego, or analytical mind, has been taught that it is in charge, and this teaching must be unlearned. Being in the sacred space teaches us to move beyond the analytical mind and into the intuitive mind. We can encounter the intuitive mind only in sacred space, and from there we can learn to identify the analytical mind.

The analytical mind co-creates doubt, fear, and resistance, as well as the patterns that we play through our mind when we are operating out of habituated behavior, on automatic pilot.

Of course, the analytical mind resists entering this sacred space. We have to realize that we will have doubts and fears about the “inner knowing” or truth that we encounter in sacred space. We have to have the faith and courage to stay with the inner knowing, even when we don’t see proof of what we experienced and felt.

We will still feel doubt and fear, but once we realize that they come from the lower mind, the analytical mind can know that these instead of participating with these thoughts and feelings, we need to transmute them.

The Akashic Records say that the lower, or carnal, mind sprang forth at a certain point in time. This tells us that it is finite, for only finite things have a beginning. Infinity has no beginning. But finite things also have an end. As well as having a beginning point, the finite mind also has an end point. For this reason, it is much more afraid of us, who are conquering it, than we are afraid of it.

And until the lower mind reaches its end point, it will continue to create as much chaos as possible, for that is how it sustains itself. It gets its energy by stealing ours.

When we generate lower thought and feeling, it goes to the lower collective. This is why we must watch carefully within our minds, standing guard not to participate with doubt. For example, the lower mind will definitely seed doubt about what I’m saying here, for it does not want to be found out. It constantly puts our focus on outer things and illusions.

As a result, we need to actually crave discipline. No matter how much resistance we have to meditating each day or being in the sacred space, we need to apply discipline to every aspect of our lives, including eating and breathing. And we need most of all to stand guard on our consciousness.

So we have to have a plan for meditation, a plan for the expression of the true self.

Julia: How is alchemy used in the sacred space? How can we use this practice in creation?

Thomas: Let’s say that we realize the need to meditate and create a sacred space or altar for meditation.

So we do this. And after we accomplish meditation in this place, we have actually changed the energy of that place. We can walk by it and allow ourselves to feel that the energy really has changed.

This is alchemy, the actual change in a physical space caused by spiritual intent.

Alchemy in the mental realms occurs when we seek the silence and transmute our thoughts. So we begin with sacred space and enter into the inner calmness. We then go to work standing guard, transmuting thought and feeing until we reach the Great Silence. And once, through inner work, we have remembered how to reach the Great Silence, we begin to apply this discipline in the Now — in every moment of every day.

When we start to go into deep silence, there will be a feeling of resistance. If we realize that this feeling is a temptation to procrastinate, then we know that this feeling needs to be transmuted.

So, for example, we may remember that we need to make a phone call or feed the dog or balance the checkbook. So we then realize that, of course, all of these things must be done. But right now we are learning not to participate in these thoughts. We are realizing that these thoughts and feelings, which have misled us for so long, are attempting to take us out of the Now. So we stop going along with them.

The best permanent solution I have ever experienced is to be in the great alchemy of lifting up and transmuting these energies, as they seek to intrude, back to their perfect form and color.

So, to sum it up: When we go into this place of silence, the outer/lower mind tries to intrude. But we can identify the thoughtforms of the outer mind and learn to “tag” them when their energy intrudes.

And once we have identified them, we can stop them. For example, we can ask God to take the thoughtform and send it up to the Light. If we do this long enough, this transmutation process will actually become an auto-response to the thought patterns of the outer mind.

If the thoughts are stopped, we can go into a place of true silence. The Light is silent. Peace is silent. We have to move into the silence Now. For there is no other time but Now. We can only be in the silence if we are in the Now. If we are not in the Now, we are out of the silence.

The lower mind is not in charge. It just wants to be. But the analytical mind was actually created for the purpose of carrying out, in physical reality, the commands of the intuitive God Center within each one of us. If we recognize the thought forms and feelings of the lower mind, we have free will and choice. If we don’t recognize them, then we have no choice.

This Now, which is within the heart, is the sacred space of the temple within. This is the place at which we can reach Zero Point and create. We can actually command thought through our feeling center and qualify the particles to act. This is the alchemical act of precipitation. From this point, there is no question as to what we are, what we are becoming. We have willed it; it is as certain as knowing who is coming to dinner because we have invited them to dinner. When we create something at this level, we simply expect it to show up in the manifestation plane.

This is important. Expecting what we create to show up is energy brought into manifestation. It is like looking at the thunderclouds and knowing that it will rain. There is no question.

The laws of Alchemy say to “become the accomplished desire,” to feel it, to be it. When we become the accomplished desire, and do not participate with doubt and sustain the application, we precipitate the desire.

When we command the desire through being centered, we literally command the particles that compose matter to act. This is alchemy — the transmutation of thought into the material plane.

We will be tempted to believe, through the action of doubt, that the accomplished desire will not show up or manifest — that the process didn’t work. But the truth is always that if we don’t participate with doubt, fear, or worry, we will experience what we are intending to manifest. There is a delay or response time — it could be seconds, minutes, or days, depending on the amount of knowing that was applied to the manifestation and our level of previous attainment — but it must happen.

The more you apply these universal laws, the quicker things come into manifestation. But we never wait for the manifestation, for this would mean it has not yet happened. No matter what we may think, God within has acted, and it is up to us to hold this knowing.

In this space/time between universal and manifest — before the precipitation — it is important to transmute all permutations of the lower mind, and this means any feelings or thoughts that relate to doubt, fear, or worry.

All lower things, when raised, pass through the violet flame. These thoughts can be eliminated by sending them through the violet flame, transmuting them, and staying in the place with the accomplished desire. The accomplished desire will then manifest.

This is alchemy. It is how it can be used to manifest the Creation in the sacred space in the temple. We are all temples with sacred space. We can all transmute our feelings and create our desires through this application of alchemy.

We can move dimensionally into ascension through this same application. This is the greatest alchemy of all, to ascend. We do not need workshops, or teachers, or temples any more. We need only to remember what we have always known. We enter into this knowing in The Great Silence.

Julia: Do you have any thoughts in closing?

Thomas: Anyone can create and sustain sacred space. We are all equal. You can remember to transmute the outer or lower mind that will seek to intrude. Whatever you need is here through the application of these Universal Laws.

These things of God are here for our use. You must learn to become disciplined to apply them. Our desires will change from wanting what we want to wanting what we need. We will be again in the dance of life.

We are all here to serve. If you know it, that’s great. If you do it, that’s even better.

For some of us, the ascension process makes us want to run away. For others, we ask what we can do to be of service.

If you are a priest or priestess — someone who understands the Light and Silence — then hold this Love Light of Truth in service so that it is available for those that are moving into this consciousness.

Thomas Morton awakened spiritually at an early age and was in service until his death. His life was focused on healing the planet’s energies. He worked with lightworkers, and traveled the world, speaking to groups and working directly with the Earth’s grid.

New Moon, New Year

When the night sky grows dark, and the horizon is punctuated by bare trees, the New Moon appears on Sunday, January 2. The New Moon marks the end of the last lunar cycle and opens the door to the next. It is the time of void and an odd stillness when we can go within to plan or intuit the next cycle.

With five planets in earth, we may experience a “heavy”, dense feeling, which will subside a day or two after the New Moon. At the beginning of a New Year, this chart far exceeds last year’s chart with potentially positive energy.

Sun and Moon are on Capricorn 13, “A Fire Worshipper Meditates on the Ultimate Realities of Existence”, according to Lynda Hill’s Sabian Symbols. The symbol encourages exploration of the underlying truth of reality and the necessity to exist in the physical world. Fire often symbolizes the heart, passion, and magic. It points to finding answers within the heart and the inner self.

Sun and Moon are placed in Capricorn, symbolized by a goat that climbs to heights on cold mountains. Saturn rules Capricorn, placing our awareness on earthly limits and the passage of time. The chart encourages commitment to progress on the physical path, placing our attention on truth, time, and success with intentions and work in the outer world.

Sun (life, light) and Moon (emotions) trine Uranus (sudden change, quantum field), which emphasizes the creative, higher mind. Uranus is a higher form of air (the mind) in alchemy; it can move instantly from one place to another, altering the fabric of material life. Sun trine Uranus heightens our intuitive ability to contact the Universal Mind through hunches, gestalt understanding, and new/original methods of seeing life.

Moon trine Uranus increases emotional empathy and intuitive perception. It expands our ability to express and act on our feelings in practical aspects of life. The two aspects offer insights into the expression of higher thoughts and feelings in daily, personal, and outer life.

Mercury (thought, mind) in Aquarius speeds the mind, acting in an electrical sense to make connections on the humanitarian and collective level. Air signs sharpen and focus thought. Mercury conjuncts (close to) Venus (love, relationships, beauty), and it aids with reception and expression of love. It opens our heart to communication. Mercury conjuncts Pluto (underworld, transformation), giving insight to deeper aspects of the psyche. We may suddenly understand the cause for feelings and actions on a deeper level—and find solutions such as the ability to change and transform.

Venus Retrograde in Capricorn tends to bring old wounds and patterns as associated with relationships to the surface. It’s wise to re-examine our expectations and contributions to relationships. Venus sextiles Neptune (mysticism, illusion), increasing sensitivity, intuition, and openness to cosmic messages. Venus conjunct Pluto (subconscious, transformation) intensifies the need and desire for love. However, it’s easy to confuse our needs with the exchange of love, and it’s important to discern.

Like Mercury and Venus, the aspects with Mars send more than one message. Mars, the planet of assertiveness, desire, and energy, is placed in Sagittarius, a fire sign, which increases our energy level, action and the intent to pursue our passion. The overall energy is eager, optimistic, and focused on the quest. It asks us to stay open to new thoughts, ideas, and philosophies.

Mars sextiles Saturn (time, karma, limitation), giving the power to pursue and progress with long term projects. It heightens ambition. On the opposite, Mars squares Neptune (illusion, mysticism), which may block our ability to perceive the right course of action. It lowers our level of energy and can bring confusion about finding the right steps for practical pursuit of our path. However, the confusion can be channeled into creativity and self-expression.

Jupiter in Pisces is exalted. Jupiter rules expansion, good fortune, and growth, and Pisces is a water sign, representing the play of emotions in dual directions—and the sea of unconditional love. When we experience unconditional love, we feel bliss and higher emotions. We also feel the emotions and thoughts of other. Jupiter in Pisces can lead to greater understanding of emotional, intuitive connection, increased optimism, and higher connections, particularly if we pursue the energy so it’s applicable and practical in daily life.

Saturn (limitation, karma) and Uranus (change, quantum field) affect both the old and new worlds. Saturn teaches the understanding of how to use (and repeat or recall) the positive experiences of the past and how to learn from past experiences and recycle the energy. Uranus is the new world, the new age, and the changes that can occur when we approach the quantum field. As we recycle the old, we step into the next version of the self. (The process is occurring within us and the world.)

Neptune (illusion, idealism, mysticism) in Pisces sextiles Pluto (underworld, transformation) in Capricorn. It increases the desire to open and understand devotion, the use of the imagination, and the power of exploration a deeper understanding of spiritual mysteries. The sextile encourages the alignment of consciousness to the world of metaphysics, manifestation, and pursuit of dreams.

Overall, the chart asks for attention to all aspects of physical life, which include spirituality, mentality, emotion, and physicality. It asks for observation of how we live our lives, pursue our goals in the physical realm, and exploration of the best method to move forward and increase results.

The higher mind is emphasized through aspects with Mercury (mind, communications) and Uranus (sudden, change, quantum field.) Sun (life) trine Uranus opens the mind to higher intuitive understanding, and Moon (emotion) trine Uranus encourages emotional opening to practical, inspired answers. Mercury (mind) in Aquarius moves quickly and brilliantly.

Everything that we want such as love and/or the right direction in life is temporarily confusing as though the channel broadcasts static. We are challenged by retrograde Venus (love, partnerships) in Capricorn and asked to examine subconscious patterns. We have a strong desire for love but don’t necessarily know how to create what’s needed in our lives. Mars (action, energy) in Sagittarius asks us to pursue our quest and dreams, but it squares Neptune (idealism, illusion, mysticism), which leads to confusion about the best steps to pursue on our path.

Jupiter (expansion) in Pisces delivers higher love and compassion. Neptune sextile Pluto answers our questions with its emphasis on spiritual growth, devotion, and the quest for the inner self. Go within and listen to the inner self, the place of light where the heart, consciousness, and the universe meet.

A Message from the Wolves



Walk with a wolf and feel the wind, the earth, the sky—an entire world that moves and speaks around you. Flourish in the power of a companion with incredible strength and power. Listen with your soul to their songs at the time of the full moon. Allow their song to move through you.

Hear the songs of creation sung by the whales, dolphins, coyotes and wolves. The songs resonate with the earth, and they come from the time when the earth was new. Once, the tones of the songs had meaning to our souls, and we resonated with the sounds, but tonight we listen through words. (Once we had magic words, too, but they are mainly lost. However, we are moving into a time of remembering who we are and who we once were.)

Here’s the message.

Our words speak of the changes upon the earth. Some changes are beneath the surface of the earth; others affect the energy field. Beyond these changes, there is awakening of your “old” gifts—your ability to perceive how to change thoughts into matter and how energy affects matter. It’s partially what you call manifestation, but it is so much more. It’s about aligning with the clouds, the sun, and the earth to feel the joy of your physical body. It is about the beautiful spirit that runs through every living creature and gives life. It’s about gifts that you have forgotten, which were known at the beginning of time.

You no longer remember the slow passage in time when your gifts were forgotten, and it is not as important as remembering them. Simply feel back into the beginning of time and imagine the act of thinking and creating as if it was very easy. Imagine you have this wonderful ability. Time and practice are necessary to awaken a gift—even when you already have the gift—because humans have largely forgotten them. Imagine that you can create easily, imagine you are in harmony with the waves of life, and your joy and love of life are awakening.

We speak to your growing light–for what is creation if it is not part of awakening?

When you are in your best place, you know this. You have days that flow like clear streams when life moves gently and easily—and your wishes, small and large, come into being. Yet, you forget this state of grace and think you don’t understand why you are here and why life moves in a certain way that doesn’t bring happiness.

Move back into dreams. See your desires with all of your heart. See a beautiful earth, feel love flowing between you and others, and take time to imagine wonderful and good events. When you begin to feel and see the dreams in your heart with all of your being, there is a change. You may think of it as a change in the wind, which pushes a large storm away or the dissipation of clouds to reveal the sun.

The light of the sun and moon is similar to your gift. It is a great light that causes the positive aspects of life to grow, bringing hopes and dreams to fruition. Focus on these two skills – feeling the dreams of your heart and working to visualize them in detail.

Each of your dreams opens a door to your consciousness, awakening other gifts, changing your thoughts, and bringing your emotions into harmony with all that is. In addition, the right visualization will displace old thoughts and emotions with a greater vision of what could be and what will be–if you persist in the work. It is much about finding this deep place within yourself which vibrates with dreams, happiness, and visions. When you find the right desire and development, the old, unhappy dream falls away on its own.

It takes time, and it takes work and practice, More time and energy are often necessary with larger events. Do not lose patience.

Yet, you are needed at this time. At this time, the key to understanding the greater wisdom of consciousness is partially given. As you move into this journey of remembering the dreams of your heart and higher mind, more keys will be given.

Much time has passed since the last giving and remembering of greater gifts, but it is here now. By seeking it, developing curiosity about it, and wondering how it might feel to create harmoniously, you will find it. You also find by meditating on the hidden part of you that holds your dearest dreams and desires.

Full Cold Moon Forecast


Image by Duncan Andison


The Cold Moon appears on December 19 at 11:37 pm. It’s called the Cold Moon as it heralds the approach of winter–the bare trees, the visibility of stars, and the long nights. At the time of the Full Moon, energy associated with the moon cycle reaches it height, Sun is in Sagittarius, creating optimism and enthusiasm. Moon is in Gemini, an air sign ruling short journeys, communication, and social interaction. (Think of holiday cards, speaking with loved ones, and the excitement of the season.)

The beautiful alignment with Galactic Center, the center of love and light, continues throughout December and early January. Alignment with Galactic Center occurs by thinking of our inner light and love—and the grace of the Universe, which is always available if we chose to tap into it.

Moon (emotion) trines Jupiter (good fortune, expansion). The aspect with Moon/Jupiter increases enthusiasm, energy, and optimism about life. With both planets in air, it lifts our mentality to a higher point, encompassing generosity and humanitarian feelings. It expands kindness, perception, and creativity.

Sun (life) and Moon (emotions) square Neptune (mysticism, illusion). The square can act as a distraction from practical tasks and take our consciousness into a dreamy, illusory point of view. We may feel optimistic when we should feel practical—or mentally float in happy space. Aspects with Neptune heighten sensitivity and creativity as well amplifying the beauty of life.

Mercury (communications, higher mind) is placed in Capricorn, an earth sign that encourages pragmatic thinking, planning, and the practical aspects of the outer world. Mercury trines Uranus (quantum field, sudden change). A trine is a harmonious and beautiful aspect, which can connect the higher mind and the Divine. Insights may come through flashes of intuition, aiding in understanding how to align our spiritual nature in the physical world. We may catch glimpses of our purpose—or a deeper understanding of energy.

Venus (love, relationships, abundance) is in Capricorn, an earth sign, which relates to the cold of winter, the peaks of mountains, and ambition. It’s not the best placement for Venus, who loves beautiful, soft energy, but we can discover a great deal about the self by looking inward and examining how we seek love as it is often based on beliefs from the past that are no longer relevant. We can open to universal love and learn how to love ourselves more fully. Venus conjuncts (close to) Pluto (subconscious, transformation), which intensifies passion and the emotions associated with love. (Opening to love is not the same as seeking it.)

Mars (energy, action) moved into Sagittarius, a fire sign. This placement is physically energizing—and may encourage more activity than we can easily handle. It also increases enthusiasm, optimism, and the development of our spiritual nature. It brings an openness to change. Mars squares Jupiter (expansion, good fortune) heightens impulsiveness and assertiveness, which can place excessive interest in the self and desires. It’s important to think of others in a compassionate way before running in the direction of the next desire and goal.

Jupiter (expansion, good fortune) is in Aquarius until December 28 when it moves into Pisces, where is exalted. Jupiter in Pisces can heighten compassion, openness, and receptivity to the universe. It tells us to go deep and invite greater perception of universal energies. It’s also said to act as a blessing, expanding the hopes and dreams that are hidden within the heart.

The Saturn/Uranus square is exact on December 24. Saturn (limitation, karma) in Aquarius, the sign of the collective and group energies, squares Uranus (New Age, sudden change) in Taurus. Saturn represents slow movement, the past, and limitation; Uranus represents rapid movement, quantum change, originality, and the New Age. In this instance, Saturn seems to limit the collective with fear and polarity through COVID and the polarity in politics and disagreement over opinion. (Some astrologers think it relates to electronics, privacy, and other matters.) Uranus in Taurus speaks of earth changes and planetary evolution. With the past two squares, lower energies heightened in the collective along with disagreements over thoughts and politics.

It’s important to know we can vibrate above the energy of the square by focusing on our inner world, our personal light, and seeing/sensing solutions that are not normally perceived. We have the capacity to create a new, better existence by sending positive thoughts and images to the higher collective; power is found in light, and we need to implement it.



  • Galactic Center beams light to our consciousness. Sun in Sagittarius gives optimism and energy for our spiritual quest. Moon (emotions) trine Jupiter expands generosity, hopefulness, and intuitive perception.
  • Aspects with the Moon (emotions) and Mercury (communications) lead to realizations through the higher mind. Moon in Gemini trine Jupiter in Aquarius invokes clear thought and understanding as air signs rule the mind. Mercury trine Uranus opens the mind to intuition, quantum leaps associated with spiritual growth, and higher intelligence.
  • Venus (love, relationships) moves retrograde on December 19, which allows a time period to re-examine our feelings and beliefs about love. It’s an opportunity to perceive how we block and limit love—and how to open to greater personal and universal love.
  • Jupiter (expansion, good fortune) will move into Pisces, a water sign, embracing humanitarian issues, mysticism, and the universal sea of love. It’s also said to act a blessing, aiding with the realization of our deep dreams and desires.
  • The Saturn/Uranus square is exact on December 24. It’s our task to focus on the power of the cosmos, vibrate above the discordant energy, and energize our personal dream of how a higher life should look and feel.

Ascension: Heaven on Earth

Image by Griffin Lambert


In the past, we thought of ascension in terms of leaving the Earth to enter a higher plane of being or reaching “heaven.” But many people feel that ascension in our time is really about creating Heaven on Earth, right here and now.

Author and spiritual consultant Jean Adrienne is one who believes and teaches the Heaven o -Earth interpretation. She also feels that this is going to involve massive alterations in our earthly DNA and in our chakra system — changes that only became possible when we began to dream this dream. Why would we choose to stay here on Earth?

From the standpoint of the Higher Self, the answer is a no-brainer. “Alchemy,” says Jean, “teaches that every soul in the Universe, no matter how advanced, envies us for having a body.”

Julia: Let’s start by talking about what you mean by the word “ascension.”

 Jean: The actual definition of the word, according to Webster’s dictionary, is simply “moving from one level to another.” The historical definition from a spiritual/religious standpoint has been that we die and go to heaven, but by definition, ascension of consciousness would simply mean moving from one level of consciousness to another.

So, if we agree that we have been living in Third Dimensional consciousness for a number of years, then ascension could mean moving to the fifth level or ninth level of consciousness. We’ve been given a preconceived notion that it is necessary to leave our bodies behind in order to travel to this better place. But ascension can take place on the physical plane just by raising the consciousness. We can choose to stay in the physical body and ascend.

Ascension doesn’t necessarily mean that people who choose not to ascend will disappear from our experience. It’s possible that they will simply have a different experience. And those who want to ascend without a body can possibly have that experience, too.

However it goes, there will be two different realties. And maybe we’ll reach a point in the future where both realities can co-exist, but where we don’t actually see each other. Perhaps one plane will be invisible to the other. But I think how it turns out for each one of us is an individual choice — everyone will have to choose to do whatever they do. Because this is a planet of free choice. We chose to come here and experience life in a body because we could have body experiences, and these are not available elsewhere.

Alchemy teaches that every soul in the Universe, no matter how advanced, envies us for having a body. There are things one can do in a body — such as having certain physical experiences — that are not possible without one.

Julia: If we are in the Fifth Dimension now, or moving into the Fifth Dimension, what are some of the changes that will be taking place?

Jean: The beginning of this move from one state of consciousness to another state of consciousness is to admit to ourselves the importance of having a body, and then reclaim the aspects of the physical body that we surrendered in our quest for spirituality. We have tried to lighten ourselves for some time. This has been the spiritual teaching: to lighten up, to perhaps even to leave the body by forsaking certain foods or habits.

The truth is that we are spiritual beings having a physical experience. We need to claim this and fully activate and feel this physical experience. There is truly no other way to live in the present. If we can’t live in the present, then we can’t live in the heart space or become enlightened. And if we are totally connected between the physical and spiritual, then the present is the only experience we will have. If this connection is complete, we will experience nothing but harmony and growth.

Julia: For those who are just discovering ascension in a body — who have not had intuitive awareness of it in the past — what advice can you give?

Jean: It’s all about intention. The first thing that needs to happen is that one needs to decide to be open and receive this information. As soon as this happens, the rest is history, and it will happen. The more one walks in surrender, the more rapidly it will happen.

Julia: Will changes actually occur in the DNA, as so many are saying?

Jean: I believe so. I think that in order for ascension to take place in the human form, the body must be upgraded to hold a higher vibration. This process can be started by activating additional strands of DNA — the spiritual DNA. It is thought that we originally had more than the two strands of DNA found in our bodies today.

If additional strands are activated, we awaken new abilities, gifts, and powers that have been held dormant. If you unwind the double DNA helix, you can see that it looks like a ladder. Perhaps our DNA could be a ladder into the Fifth Dimension. There are people who perform DNA activation in which they activate the twelve strands of DNA. But this twelve-strand process may just be a beginning, because it is my feeling that there are more strands of DNA even than that. I suspect there are thirty-six strands of DNA. I suspect that the DNA paradigm changed when many of us realized that it was possible for us to ascend in the physical body, and that the DNA strands are the key to ascension. Certainly, everything that we are physically is encoded in the DNA.

We have physical DNA in our cells, and spiritual DNA that is in our energy field. These two energies have to be connected, just as the left and right hemispheres of the brain must become integrated and balanced as we move into the Fifth Dimension. All of our inner knowledge is stored in the DNA. The memory of everything “that is” is encoded in the DNA. When we become authentic, we no longer search outside ourselves for “true knowledge.” It is within us.

I suspect this true knowledge is stored within the DNA, and that as we ascend, more strands will be activated so that we can to access more of our inner, hidden knowledge.

Julia: I understand you also believe that changes in the chakras are part of the ascension process. How does that work?

Jean: I believe we need to move our attention from our higher chakras to the Root and Sacral chakras. This is the place where we begin manifesting idea into form. For years, we were told to focus on the Third Eye and Crown chakras. But I think we have to focus on the first and second chakras now, to bring creation into form — to bring Heaven to Earth.

I’m seeing many people, even vegans, are being called to eat meat, or at least root vegetables, just in order to ground themselves back in the body. And I think that as we move into this grounding, into the physical body and activation of the DNA, there will be additional chakras. If there are twelve strands of DNA, it is only logical to assume that there are twelve chakras that relate to this. And if there are thirty-six strands of DNA, then there may be thirty-six chakras.

The first chakra that becomes apparent through the process of ascension is the high heart or thymus chakra. This chakra has started opening for many people, and they often experience the opening as the feeling of having a heart attack. I see this chakra as lime green. Some people see it as aqua. There is also a new chakra right above the lip. It can be seen from the back of the head at the occiput. It’s called the ascension chakra. Other chakras may be near the spleen, and other chakras are in the energy field but haven’t come in yet. The Soul Star chakra is about eighteen inches above the Crown, and there is another chakra above that one. We don’t know the location of all of the new chakras. This is exciting, and we’ll find out more as we move through the ascension process.

A whole new paradigm for the physical body is being created. We are moving from a body that is controlled by the immune system to a body that is controlled or activated by the heart. We are reacting to emotions when we are in the immune system, but when we are in the high heart chakra we are connected to our inner knowing.

We thought before that we lived in a world run by forces external to ourselves. But the ascension movement is all about a world that’s governed by the high heart.

Julia: I know that many people are having strong physical experiences right now. How does this new paradigm affect our health?

Jean: It is possible to create more perfect health through this synthesis of the body and soul that I talked about before. But it will also be possible to create anomalies of health, if this is what the person chooses to experience in order to learn. It is all about choosing our reality with each moment that passes.

Julia: How does the Crystal Grid relate to ascension?

Jean: None of this could begin to happen until the Crystal Grid was in place. Prior to its establishment, we may have had to leave the physical plane in order to ascend. There are other grids besides the Crystal Grid. There is an Axiatonal Grid that connects the body to the earth’s meridians, to the Crystal Grid, and to the Universal Grid above that.

We are taking on a new vibratory level as we connect to the Crystal Grid. It’s similar to power stations, or like moving from dial-up on the Internet to cable and DSL. We are using the vibratory frequencies at a different pace. The hertz vibration of the body is absolutely off the chart today. Two or three years ago, the average human vibrated at somewhere around 68 hertz. Now it’s not unusual for me to find someone who vibrates at five million hertz!

There is another new paradigm that is open to a lot of conscious creation, one we can’t even perceive, radically different from anything that’s been written about the human species or that we have experienced. It’s hard for us to get out of the box and release enough control to open ourselves to this new paradigm.

Seeing the new paradigm only happens when we release control. We can do that by identifying how control operates in our life. Control is operating any time things don’t seem easy, peaceful, and harmonious. As soon as our world starts to get testy, we can rest assured that we are exerting our will at some level. These uncomfortable emotions are really a signal that we are not tapping into our intuitive knowledge.

When the emotions occur, I tell myself that I am having a Mortal Moment. And the only thing we can do in a Mortal Moment is nothing! Make no decisions, make no choices — because decisions and choices made during Mortal Moments cannot be for our highest and best good. Consider that the Universal law of attraction means that our thoughts and vibrations essentially choose the systems and events that will operate around us. Another way of saying this is, “Our experience of the world is the outcome of our emotions and thoughtforms.” When we relinquish control, everything falls into place. It’s heaven on earth.

The new paradigm is like a new channel on television, and we lose our reception to the channel whenever we go into control. The only thing we can do is take a deep breath, surrender to our higher self, and just let go.

Julia: If one decides to move into the process of ascension, are there important steps to take or changes we need to make in our consciousness?

Jean: We have to learn to let go of fear. We have to examine our thoughts constantly. Thoughts and emotions create, and we can’t give up our responsibility for creating by not paying attention to what we are thinking and feeling.

There are no victims in the Fifth Dimension. Anything that’s uncomfortable is our own creation. To change it, we have to create something new and better in its place, but we can only do that by taking responsibility for our thoughts and emotions.

We have to give up our base of Third-Dimensional fear. We have to move away from judging anything as either bad or good. Whenever we have any kind of judgment, we are opening ourselves to a lower vibration. It’s truly a matter of knowing that everything is, and everything is as it should be in this moment. We must learn to live, moment by moment, in the now.

As you truly ascend, you remember who you really are. You remember that you are the Creator. At this point, it’s important to put your attention on creating — creating your vision of Heaven on Earth. Begin to create what you want your reality to look like, as best you can within the old Third-Dimensional paradigm. Then — let go! Say, “My reality is this or something better.” You are turning it over to your Higher Self and allowing your Higher Self to work with the vision.

We can create more wonder than we can possibly imagine. We are learning to become adept at this through the ascension process. We should create as much as we can, especially lots of joy and happiness. Remember, we can create joy and happiness. We can have a full cup. And when we have received a full cup, we must remember to give generously so that we can continue to receive generously.

New Moon and Solar Eclipse

Image by Muratart (Shutterstock)


The New Moon appears on December 4 at 2:43 am, and the Solar Eclipse occurs between 12:29 am and 4:37 am ET. Eclipses bring change along with a feeling of a “reset”; it’s helpful to meditate before an eclipse—to think about positive events and the expansion of higher consciousness. Solar eclipses take place on the New Moon when a portion of the earth is darkened by the shadow of the moon, which fully or partially blocks sunlight. They occur when the Sun, Moon, and Earth are in specific alignment. Solar eclipses affect the collective, and it’s best to stay grounded within our own energy fields.

During the month of December and early January, the earth and sun align with Galactic Center, which is said to emanate pulses of love and light. It amplifies the love and light that we feel on a daily basis—and at the time of the greatest darkness in the Western Hemisphere. Galactic Center is on Sagittarius 27, “The Sculptor’s Vision Is Slowly But Surely Taking Place”, according to Lynda Hill (Sabian Symbols). The symbol may refer to inner work of those awakening on the spiritual path–and the slow expression of spiritual concepts in the physical world.

Sun (life), Moon (emotions), and Mercury (communications) are placed in Sagittarius at the time of the New Moon, a period of reflection, stillness, and introspection. The sign of Sagittarius tends to expand optimism, desire for adventure and gives focus with the spiritual quest. With Sun and Moon conjunct Mercury (thought), clear expression and communication are heightened. It’s a wonderful time to say how we feel and express deeper thoughts.

Sun (outer life), Moon (inner life) and Mercury (thought, communication) sextile Saturn, which helps with applying lessons from the past. It can also give self-reliance and perseverance; it enhances self-discipline and determination.

Sun (outer life), Moon (inner life) and Mercury (thought, communication) square Neptune (illusion, mysticism). Squares cause tension between two sets of thoughts and inclinations; they are not comfortable. This square demands a different kind of spirituality, which is not related to personal adherence to the role of light worker. It demands “real” work and sifting through illusion to find universal truth. With the eclipse in play, the squares also ask for examination of self-deception and limiting patterns/beliefs. (The discovery of how we deceive ourselves is never easy, but it leads to insights and expansion on the spiritual path.)

Venus, ruler of love, abundance, and relationships, is in Capricorn until March 6. Venus is conscientious and circumspect in this placement. It can bring up sensations of feeling unloved or victimized; it can also remind of us of how we may lack or need love in our lives. of not being loved or feeling victimized. (However, we can always love ourselves, clear the past, and create a new future. Love begets love, and we can create it.)

Venus conjuncts (close to) Pluto (subconscious, transformation), and it’s a powerful aspect. It concerns using our power in relationships in the right way such as creating healthy boundaries, speaking from a neutral point of view, and expressing love in a way that others can hear. Everyone has moments of incorrect expression, weak boundaries, and not being heard, and the aspect is an opportunity to rewrite our approach in all types of relationships.

Mars is in Scorpio, a water sign, heightening dreams, ambitions, and emotions with a focus on personal power. The trick is learning how to express anger and deep emotion in a positive sense. Mars (action) squares Jupiter (good fortune), which intensifies passionate longings and an urge to succeed, but there is often resistance to success. Patience and perseverance are often the answer to the “push”.  It can feel like an obsessive urge to complete a task. Do it in steps, don’t force, and proceed slowly. Marts trine Neptune (illusion, mysticism) increases sensitivity, creativity, and connection with the Divine. The energy is best expressed through art, dance, and spiritual practices.

Saturn (karma, limitation) in Aquarius remains square Uranus (sudden change, quantum field), an aspect that has been believed to cause dissension in politics, global events, and the duality with world views. Saturn rules restrictions, limitation, control, government obligations, and economy. We may feel or see conflict in accepting Aquarian ideals and/or making changes on a larger level. Overall, it is a limiting force. It’s the third square, and we’ll feel it more during the latter part of December.

Sun (life), Moon (emotion), and Mercury (mind) trine Chiron, the wounded healer, which indicates the possibility of harmoniously healing wounds on a personal level.


  • Alignment with Galactic Center and Sun in Sagittarius give optimism, energy, and light to the forecast. While it’s lovely, it’s also important to remain intent about our spiritual work and personal quests.
  • Eclipses can feel unsettling. Use the energy to focus on staying centered, grounding, and moving through patterns.
  • Sun, Moon, Mercury square Neptune (illusion, mysticism). This aspect may cause feelings of tiredness or laziness, but we’re also receiving inspiration from the Divine. It’s a personal decision to give into the desire to relax and dream—or use the planetary energy to move into deeper meditation and the realization of our spiritual quest.
  • Venus (love) encourages overcoming limiting patterns and self-defeating patterns as associated with partnerships and love relationships.
  • Many energetic changes will occur during the month of December. Take time to stay aligned with the inner self.
