previous article, relationship planets Venus and Mars are currently traveling through the zodiac in a conjunction in Virgo (exact October 5 at 19 degrees). This indicates that a little editing, fine-tuning, or tightening up may be required in our relations with others.
The application of heightened discernment, stronger filters, and higher standards (Virgo) in relationships of all kinds (Venus-Mars) is a theme.
Transiting Venus and Mars in Virgo are currently forming oppositions to Neptune in Pisces, and both bodies form oppositions to wounded healer Chiron in Pisces next month (exact October 10 - 15).
This brings up the possibility for some direct contact with "Neptunian shitbag" behaviours with a requirement to filter these out, making them fully unacceptable in our lives and in our relationships.
As we are now hurtling headlong into the astrological era of Aquarius, these behaviours may be less prevalent or at least, a little harder to pinpoint than when we were in full-on tail-end Piscean era.
At the same time, the slippery flakiness, charm, and shitbaggery that can be associated with Neptune/Pisces do rear their ugly heads, and Venus-Mars in Virgo is a great time to out this stuff, outsmart it, and quietly demand better.
As stated in the previous article, "Mars relates to desire, and in Virgo, only those with shit together - and with a history of having shit together - need apply."
(Again, this involves relationships of all kinds, not just romantic ones.)
As a little humourous yet reality-based reminder of the Neptunian shitbaggery to be on the lookout for, I will re-post an excerpt from an article from December 1, 2011, titled "Mars in Virgo Hot or Nots." This article was written just prior to the last Mars retrograde in Virgo (January to April 2012):
"Warning: This article contains an extraordinary number
of occurrences of the word "shit" as well as derivatives of the word
"shit." Proceed only if scatological references in relation to human
behaviour do not offend...
I saw the 2008 film The Wrestler a few weeks ago, and the main character in the film illustrated the Piscean/Neptunian shitbag quite well. You know the kind.
a person who, on one hand, is deeply wonderful, gentle, compassionate,
loving, sensitive, human, spiritually-aware - a person who can feel
oh-so-good to be around, who has so much potential! This is a person who seems to know you on a special level, who can touch your heart in profound ways.
And then, on the other hand, the person's a shitbag.
guy in the movie was an aging professional wrestler who was in many
respects a lovely man. He was funny, giving, compassionate, a real
mentor for up-and-coming wrestlers. He was exciting, sexy, interesting,
and he could waltz.
He was also a shitbag. He abandoned his
daughter when she was little, preferring to immerse himself in the
cheering crowds and artificial (highly Neptunian) world of professional
wrestling. He spent his money on alcohol, drugs, and lap dances,
screwing random women still hot for his fading star. He lived in past
glory, trying to outrun the requirements of the present. He made
promises he didn't keep. He let people down. When the going got tough,
he cut and ran, taking the easy way out and slipping out of his
The reality didn't live up to the hype - a big Neptune theme.
We've all seen or experienced Neptune at work in relationship. ("But I loooove
him!") Neptune glosses over all the shitbag behaviours, leaving only
the wonderful. If Neptune is strong enough, it's as if the shitbag
behaviours don't even exist. They're invisible, dimmed dramatically by
the shining, glowing, rosy light of the wonderful qualities Neptune
insists are the whole story.
The shitbag behaviours are skimmed
over and forgiven almost immediately, without holding the individual
accountable, and nothing changes. It's the same cycle over and over
again: shitbag behaviour, disappointment and hurt, forgiveness, being
awash with Neptunian love; shitbag behaviour, disappointment and hurt,
forgiveness, being awash with Neptunian love...
The damage keeps
being done, keeps accumulating, and Neptune keeps covering it all over,
focusing only on the lovey dovey goodness.
Until the point comes
where enough is enough, and the cycle absolutely has to be broken. It
takes a while to get there, but this is where we are now.
are many deeply-ingrained Piscean era cycles to be, once and for all,
broken, cleaned up, and transitioned out of as Mars moves through...Virgo, and they're holding on with a great deal
of subtlety and tenacity.
This isn't just straight-up, easily identifiable Neptunian shitbag we're dealing with here, as in The Wrestler.
This is immersed into the scene, woven into the energetic fabric. This
is a multitude of subtle variations. This is even just the energetic
impression of shitbag with little to no identifiable behaviour.
Neptunian gloss is potent stuff, crystallized and unquestioned in many
cases. People have been getting away with this stuff for a good long
If we assist it, Mars in
Virgo will cut through the gloss in a valiant attempt to address fatal
character flaws and make things right through and through. Virgo relates
to personal development, and Mars does battle on the fine points here...
For a little helpful guidance on this front, here are some Mars in Virgo HOT or NOTS:
A person who will defer sex until the right time and the right
conditions out of respect for the health and well-being of both parties.
NOT HOT: Someone slobbering in your ear and getting all hot and bothered when you're basically still at handshake stage.
HOT: A person who puts effort into learning the details about you, what you like and don't like, and then applies it precisely.
NOT HOT: Discovering someone you've been dating for weeks can't pronounce your last name correctly.
HOT: People who run their lives like well-oiled machines who would be scandalized if they bounced a cheque.
Flaky, floaty, space cadets who routinely bounce cheques (if they even have a bank account) and live in a
state of constant chaos that spills over into the lives of other people.
HOT: Finding a new boyfriend or girlfriend
with carefully cultivated associations and influences who has no problem
weeding out detrimental ones. This person has been anticipating you and
has created a place that is just right for you in his/her life.
Discovering your new boyfriend comes with a string of: old exes who
call regularly in some variety of life crisis, hard-up buddies looking
for a place to crash, down-and-out family members asking for money,
slightly obsessive old flames who still have a thing for him, and
various shady types always involved in some type of
not-quite-above-board situation, bringing you into contact with people
you would choose not to be around otherwise. Discovering the place he
has created for you is a dirty mattress on the unwashed floor that you
have to share with the sleeping-it-off ex-girlfriend of his high school
HOT: Someone who shows his desire
for you by keeping bills up to date, dishes washed, floors vacuumed, and
laundry folded, thereby removing stressors so energy can be directed
into more *ahem* extracurricular-type activities.
Someone who forgets his wallet at home, leaves dirty dishes strewn
around, and thinks the hamper is wherever his clothes happen to fall. I
know a few slobs, and I love them, but I'm here to advise that slobbing
is NOT HOT under Mars in Virgo.
Moderation, temperance, practicality, humility, modesty, earthiness,
focused drive and self-direction, attention to detail, awareness of the
NOT HOT: Escapism, substance abuse,
chaos, pie-in-the-sky ideas, ineffectiveness, weak will, scattered
energies, being excessively impressionable and easily led astray,
allowing oneself to be tossed around by the circumstances of the day.
HOT: Living simply and within one's means.
NOT HOT: Financial over-extension, frivolity, living on (bad) credit.
HOT: A person who has developed a level of self-control and self-mastery.
NOT HOT: Someone looking to be taken care of.
HOT: Taking full responsibility for half-assed behaviour, rectifying it immediately.
NOT HOT: Making vague, weaselly excuses for half-assed behaviour and then continuing it.
HOT: Saying you're going to do something and doing it, on time.
Saying you're going to do something but then consulting your psychic
who tells you not to do it unless six particular signs as well as a
white eagle's feather show up within fourteen days. Staying in a state
of "tortured" limbo for months, hashing it over ad nauseum with every
person you know to the point that people start avoiding your ass."
Venus will be in Virgo until October 14, 2017 and Mars will be in Virgo until October 22. The Venus-Mars conjunction occurs at 19 degrees Virgo on October 5. So if
you recognize yourself on the NOT HOT list, you have some time to move yourself onto the HOT list. And if you recognize
yourself on the HOT list, congratulations on being a hot

Sunday, September 24, 2017
There is a momentary pause in the action and busyness for us to take a breath and see where we stand, particularly in relation to others and to the world around us.
Greater Benefic Jupiter is completing its transit of relationship and justice-oriented Libra at this time and forms a final exact opposition to Uranus in Aries on September 27 (9:25 p.m. PDT), just as Pluto stations direct at 16 degrees Capricorn September 28 (12:36 p.m.) and Venus in Virgo opposes Neptune in Pisces September 29 (5:11 p.m.). (Mars in Virgo opposes Neptune in Pisces September 25 at 12:49 p.m.)
This astrological context indicates a final propulsion into new-era dynamics and rules for relationships and social scenes, one final surge past the sticky, tricky tendrils of karmically-loaded Piscean-era relating that will not bring us desired results as we move forward.
The current astrological context indicates that there is some stuff to clear in our relationships and in our dynamics of relating now - some old Piscean-era stuff that, if continued, will not create the healthy and loving relations and connections we desire.
As Pluto stations direct, we're doing the big purge, shedding skins, moving through a process of energetic moulting and streamlining. As we move to the dark half of the year, we're dropping the non-essentials. We're dropping the drama. We're dropping the excess charge. (Ain't nobody got time for that!) We're dropping the weight of things that we do not have the strength or energy to continue carrying or dealing with or putting up with.
We may have to reality check ourselves a little on this front, being brutally honest about any areas of emotional or energetic over-extension. With Pluto so strong in the zodiac, we may be tempted by "moth-to-flame" scenarios that have burned us in the past, and we're battling our own inner fascinations, compulsions, and desires at this time as much as anything.
With the combination of the Jupiter-Uranus and Venus-Neptune oppositions occurring at the time of the Pluto direct station, we're dropping the dead carcasses of Piscean-era ideals, fantasies, and dreams, as well as old rules around what other people "should" do in relation to us and how love and relationships "should" be.
From a previous article:
"Pisces is known for the heroic lengths it will go to in order to long and pine and sigh and hurt and torture itself over ideas and ideals of love and over the projected object of its affection.
Old school Pisces wants complete immersion in love and in a loved one. Always. And forever. It wants to be wrapped up in a cocoon of unending love, adoration, and support from the universe and from other people. It wants to do a continual backstroke in the auric field of the one it desires. Blissful communion and spiritual ecstasy with nothing reality-based that might burst its bubble.
But we're moving on from that as the dominant ideal for love. Those things exist in love, certainly, but they are no longer the singular ideal for which we are holding out.
That old school love ideal ain't coming back (thank goodness), and those who are wasting time waiting on it will be moved into the new era via Uranian shocks to the system, like it or not.
There is no time, no energy, no inclination left to torture ourselves over anyone else or over any outdated ideals for love...
Under the astrological Aquarian era, Pisces loves freely, just as it always did. But Pisces must also ensure that loving someone does not drag it into the same old traps. The pure and open-hearted love given so generously by Pisces must be applied a little more intelligently, with a little more discernment, with a bit higher standards...
We do not love to obligate others to us. We do not love only so that we can receive love in return. We do not love only to help or heal or prop others up. We do not love because we feel guilty or beholden or sorry for someone. We do not love simply so that we don't have to move forward.
Under the current scene, if it hurts, it isn't love. If it hurts, it's an old Neptunian trick you have to figure out, an old Piscean-era construct, a mirage you need to move through.
Or on the other hand, if it hurts, it may be a point of too-extreme detachment, too much cold Aquarius, too hard an angle. Going too far into the Aquarian extreme can be just as painful, requiring the correct application of Piscean love to bridge the gap. Pisces is the sign of union, remember, the last sign of the zodiac, the sign that brings it all together.
So on the Piscean end of things, if it hurts, you need to let it go. You need to detach from it. You need to re-formulate, distract yourself, propel yourself beyond it.
But on the Aquarian end of things, if it hurts, you need to make the loving connection, build the bridge, bring it back to love, bring it back to union and communion. You need to hold space for the love that fills the cracks and makes us whole again."
The standard Piscean-era romanticized ideals and expectations may be nipping at us here, as relationship planets Venus and Mars both transit Virgo in opposition to Neptune (and later wounded healer Chiron) in Pisces. This Neptunian overlay can certainly bring up some bad habits, some illusions, some blind spots, and some general dirty tricks when it comes to love, romance, and other people, in general. There is danger of being drawn into the cycle of built-up hopeful expectations followed by disappointment and despair, built-up hopeful expectations followed by disappointment and despair...
But the boon here is this: Virgo was designed to nip this stuff in the bud. Virgo was made to cut through emotional chaos and illusions and bliss bubbles and dreamy softheadedness.
The heightened discernment, stronger filters, and higher standards required as we hurtle further into astrological Aquarius? Virgo is the stone cold master with that stuff.
So as Mars and Venus in Virgo both form flowing trine aspects to stationing Pluto in Capricorn (October 1 and 3), followed by a potent Venus-Mars conjunction at 19 degrees Virgo on October 5 at the 12-degree Harvest Full Moon in Aries, we are supported to apply these Virgoan qualities in our relationships with the utmost precision.
We're supported to cut away and clear away the last of the Piscean-era fog swirling around human relations, coming to a new clarity about what actually is, rather than what we hoped or dreamed or wished existed. We're working with the potential of what actually exists in our relationships and social frameworks in the current moment, right where we stand, and this is ultimately much more satisfactory and exhilarating territory.
We're looking to entirely purge the element of detrimental self-sacrifice from our relations while not losing the compassion, love, and sensitivity.
We're looking to clarify our stances in relation to others. We're looking to draw attention to details that may have been overlooked or glossed over previously within our social scenes.
We will have additional opportunities to apply this crisper, cleaner, no-strings-attached way of relating as both Venus and Mars in Virgo form oppositions to wounded healer Chiron in Pisces. Venus opposes Chiron on October 10 (strongly colouring the Jupiter ingress of Scorpio), and Mars opposes Chiron on October 15. If there are situations that we've been drawn into through guilt or through the projected expectations of others, these aspects will provide an opportunity to clear that away, so long as we do the work and keep working until it's clear.
There is a certain social energetic mix coming fully to the forefront now, and it has been in the works during the entire Jupiter in Libra transit, since September 2016. This mix may involve a somewhat unusual cast of characters with varying interests. But every rough edge and every seemingly-disjointed social connection are necessary. We need the energy and the dynamism of these unusual social mixes to make it through.
There are some catalytic connections coming with Jupiter's transit of Scorpio (October 10, 2017 to November 8, 2018), and we're setting the social stage now, expanding it to its full Aquarian-era glory, as Jupiter completes its transit of Libra in opposition to Uranus in Aries.
We may experience some social/relational turbulence and "growing pains" as Jupiter completes its transit of the scales and enters the new sign of Scorpio. There are some interpersonal shifts and shifts in power dynamics indicated as we move into a stronger egalitarian social overlay. With the influence of strong Pluto, some alternately intriguing and upsetting/frictional interactions may be involved.
The big, new-era relational wave indicated by Jupiter in late Libra opposite Uranus in Aries will continue to be fleshed out throughout the fall, as the personal planets in Libra form squares to stationing-potent Pluto in Capricorn and oppositions to revolutionary rabble-rouser Uranus in Aries.
The Sun and Mercury form their exterior conjunction at 15 degrees Libra on October 8, followed by squares to Pluto in Capricorn October 9. This sets a tone of social/relational alchemy, change, and transformation as Jupiter enters Scorpio October 10.
Communication planet Mercury in Libra will then get out in front of the Sun, forming an opposition to Uranus in Aries on October 15.
The Sun in Libra will oppose Uranus in Aries October 19, just before a New Moon at 26 degrees Libra.
Venus in Libra will form a square to Pluto in Capricorn on October 27, followed by an opposition to Uranus in Aries on November 3 at the 11-degree Taurus Full Moon.
Finally, Mars in Libra will square Pluto in Capricorn November 19, followed by an opposition to Uranus in Aries December 1.
This indicates quite a rollicking (and potentially rocky?) social and relational scene as we move through fall in the northern hemisphere. Many changes are possible, particularly involving interpersonal and social power dynamics and organization.
The trick is to use the ultra no-nonsense Virgo energy to proactively cut through the energetic crap ahead of these cardinal aspects, determining when the universe is just screwing with us and refusing, straight-up refusing, to play ball in the same ways.
Virgo is the sign of the editor, and with relationship planets Venus and Mars transiting the sign in potent conjunction, we're editing our relationships to better suit the times in which we're living - a little snip here, a little extra precision there, a little correction here, a little polishing there.
This "relational editor" energy is most accessible until mid-October when Venus moves into its own sign of Libra (October 14).
Venus is in the sign of its fall in Virgo, meaning these "relational edits" are not necessarily easy to make while maintaining social harmony and congeniality. They can sting a little. They can inadvertently put people off or insult them.
Overall, though, these edits are necessary to head off bigger issues as we move deeper into fall with Jupiter digging in in Scorpio.
We have to be quick on the uptake here, taking immediate practical action in our relations with others and speaking up when necessary, but this can be challenging with Piscean/Neptunian energy so strong. Blind spots abound.
There just isn't energy to continue with the old-era social and relational dynamics, and this will only become more apparent the further we get into the Jupiter in Scorpio transit.
Proactively set just the right tone in your relationships and social scenes, take action on issues that are bugging you, and you'll be rewarded with a (relatively) smoother and more inspirational passage later on.

The Diminishing and Marginalization of "Those Types" of Astrologers Within the Astrology Establishment
Hurricane Harvey, the Total Solar Eclipse, and This Era of Unnatural Disaster," on a Reddit.com astrology board, which is a public message board.
This isn't something I normally do. I've actually never posted a link to this site, and I don't frequent it. Another astrologer kindly posted some of my articles there a few years ago, and I believe I made two comments in total at the site before now.
The link to my article stayed up at the Reddit page for a couple hours. I could see on my StatCounter that people were navigating to my site from that link.
But soon after, the link I posted disappeared from the page.
So I posted it again.
Again, it was deleted.
I thought maybe it was stationing Mercury that was messing with me and asked a friend to check the site for my link. She couldn't find it, either.
I wanted to know if this was censorship based on the subject matter of the article (which was certainly astrological in nature, involving a fair amount of transit and astrological research) or whether this was a general blackballing of me as an astrologer.
So I tested the waters, posting a link to this other recent article, "The Push for Standardized Astrological Education As a Pluto in Capricorn-Era Control Mechanism."
In it, I outlined a level of discrimination I've experienced and felt against intuitive astrology (the type of astrology I practise) coming from the astrological establishment.
The experience I had after posting this link amusingly (and aggravatingly) illustrates exactly what I'm talking about, which I will share here.
Posting the second article had an immediate large and backlash-y reaction with a few people shit-swarming me in the comments section. This included a couple of the more establishment-friendly astrologers trying to dominate my perspective out of existence.
"Your experience is not your experience because I say it's not and because I haven't experienced that myself, so that means it's not happening."
(Is this what they call gas-lighting?)
I was called "hostile," "skewed," "dogmatic," "objectively incorrect," and was said to be promoting a "narrative that is garbage," among other pleasantries.
All this because I refused to be brainwashed out of my own (15+ years of) experience, and I refused to be bullied into accepting their more establishment-friendly reality in place of my own.
One commenter seemed to be particularly incensed by my article and perspective, launching into paragraphs-long commentary trying to dominate my viewpoint out of existence. In his mind, his experience as a more establishment-accepted astrologer negated my (very different) experience. The classic, "I haven't experienced that, so it doesn't exist" thing.
It's common for the dominant paradigm to insist that it is the only paradigm - or the only paradigm that really matters.
This commenter said full-on that he believed it was correct that astrologers whose work involves conspiracy research should be censored from that message board. That was fairly mind-boggling to me.
Then in the second breath, he demanded to know what made me think he was more establishment-friendly than I am. (You can't make this stuff up, folks.)
Another commenter turned his nose up at sociopolitical astrology ("exhausting!") and stated his preference that astrology be just a "fun personal interest." (This view, depressingly, probably represents 90% of all astrology enthusiasts these days...)
Excessively-long comment section shitstorm short, it turns out that the guy who was so obsessively trying to force his establishment-friendly views down my throat was the moderator who censored my article in the first place! Ah, it all makes sense now.
Except, he claims it's not censorship and that, again, I am pretty well a wingnut if I think that is the case.
The stated reason for my article being deleted (twice) from the Reddit astrology board:
"Resources that discuss conspiracy theories are discouraged in much the same way we discourage palmistry, numerology, and general occult things like that."
So in a fit of absolute and utter cosmic perfection and beauty, we see a clear example of the type of marginalization of "certain astrologers" within the astrology establishment that I wrote about in the article and that I then reiterated in the comments section of that article.
As this guy is so vehemently insisting that I'm making all this up and this discrimination/experience/perspective does not exist, he is illustrating the very dynamics I'm writing about.
The reason the article had such a huge and backlash-y response from these people is that it hit the nail squarely on the head.
Now, most astrologers I know are not opposed to palmistry, numerology, tarot, psychic abilities, conspiracy research, etc. It would actually seem insane to us to be opposed to those things. If we aren't into them ourselves, we're certainly not going to make it our mission to discredit them and stamp them out (so long as they are being legitimately practised by skilled and ethical people).
So if this is the policy of that Reddit astrology page, they need to make that bias known up front by stating it as a rule on the front of the page.
As I said in the article on forced standardized education/certification, I don't mind being treated like a second class citizen. What I mind is not knowing why I'm being treated that way. What I mind is everyone pretending it's not going on, pretending everything is so inclusive and evolved, when the reality of how things function is far from that.
This Reddit page moderator is taking his cues from the astrology establishment, which believes that it has to distance itself from "those types" of astrologers in order to gain mainstream acceptance (and salaries).
This type of discrimination against and marginalization of intuitive astrology and astrologers (which, yes, can involve things like palmistry, numerology, psychic abilities, divination tools, conspiracy research, etc.) is unfortunately far from uncommon within the astrological establishment.
Well, I'm one of "those types" of astrologers. The astrologers I roll with are "those types" of astrologers. The astrologers I respect are "those types" of astrologers.
And we're one potent motherfucking crew. We exist. We practise astrology, we do readings, we write, we teach, all from that potent motherfucking perspective that only we can bring.
And the astrology establishment is just going to have to get over it. Pretending we don't exist or pretending that we're just "secondary astrologers," marginalizing and shutting out our practise of astrology while pretending that is not going on - it's all so very, very last era.
And it's all very clearly a Pluto in Capricorn-era control mechanism, a power move designed to create prestige and financial reward for those who play the game while diminishing and shutting out those who do not.
Let's bring it all out into the open, friends. Jupiter in Scorpio is on its way.
Sunday, September 3, 2017
The related flooding is something that has never been seen before in U.S. history. It is being called a 1,000-year flood, with an estimated 100,000 homes and 1 million vehicles destroyed. People's lives have been detrimentally disrupted for years and potentially decades to come.
Houston is the home of former U.S. President and known member of ruling elite secret societies, George Bush, and this fact sticks out to me like a sore thumb.
We're in an era when the powers-that-be are creating "biblical" unnatural catastrophes that are then blamed purely on climate change or other factors. ("Revelations is coming true!")
Unprecedented rainfall and flooding, as well as extremely violent storms, have been experienced around the world with increasing intensity over the past decade. Even before Harvey, the United States had been hard hit with recent massive floods.
This all plays into the distorted symbolism being intentionally manifested and played out as we shift astrological eras.
The deluge myths that are being played upon now with these man-made events are cross-cultural, not limited to Noah's Ark in the Christian Bible. From a January 16, 2011 article, "Jupiter at Tail-End Pisces, the Deluge Myths and the Implanting of the Serpent":
"Fragments of cross-cultural deluge myths are suddenly becoming (sur)reality as we traipse through fin-de-Pisces - set off as part of the long-term plan by a version of "God" that is strictly man-made and a version of life on Earth that is strictly symbolic...
If we hone in on North America and the Lenni-Lanapi or Delaware River Indians' version, after the deluge, a period of snake-worship is secretly brought to Earth. Under worship of the God of the snakes, Wakon, this period brings evil, crime, unhappiness, bad weather, death. Just what the doctor ordered for those looking to rid the Earth of 'excess' humanity while controlling the remainder."
If you think weather modification, control of the weather, and weather warfare are strictly wack job conspiracy theory, think again: John F. Kennedy, Jr. spoke about the ability to control the weather to the United Nations General Assembly in 1961. You can't get much more official than that.
Rutgers University climatologist Alan Robock blew the whistle on the CIA's interest in weather warfare in 2015, claiming his department was contacted by the agency about the subject. (Source: "Spy agencies could be funding geo-engineering research in pursuit of weaponising the weather, scientists claims" by Loulla-Mae Eleftheriou-Smith, February 15, 2015, The Independent)
Robock pointed out that the U.S. government/armed forces used cloud seeding against Cuba in an attempt to increase rain and ruin the sugar harvest.
Robock also pointed to geoengineering during the war against Vietnam, when the United States government/armed forces seeded clouds over the country from 1966 to 1971 to produce an excess of rain and prolong the monsoon season. This secret mission was called Project Popeye, and it ended only after it was exposed by journalist Jack Anderson. (Source: "Controlling the Weather" by Paul Simons, September 24, 2001, The Guardian) Project Popeye was also exposed in the Pentagon Papers, reported on by The Washington Post in 1972.
The Guardian article "Controlling the Weather" also reports on historical tampering with hurricanes. In 1947, U.S. meteorologists seeded the clouds around a hurricane out at sea in a stated attempt to kill it off, but the next day, the hurricane gathered strength and did major damage in Savannah, Georgia.
In 1969, when Hurricane Debbie was 700 miles out at sea, three cloud-seeding missions were flown around the eye of the hurricane. Each time, the hurricane's winds were initially reduced but then picked up again.
During World War II, the United States and New Zealand governments were studying and testing the capabilities of "tsunami bombs" - bombs that would create tsunamis. Project Seal was one of the codenames for these experiments.
We have to wonder what the U.S. government and its scientists have learned since then...
In the video of Hurricane Harvey's path, presented by YouTube vlogger Moe Othman, the hurricane gathers strength and then disappears, gathers strength and then disappears about five times, which is not usual for a hurricane. This unusual path provides evidence of some type of manipulation.
This video shows Hurricane Harvey being "refueled" by a technique called in-place sequential water vapor generation, WeatherWar101: Hurricane Harvey: Refueled Three Times = 50 Inches
Even more evidence of potential manipulation: as pointed out in Othman's reporting, Hurricane Andrew occurred exactly 25 years prior to Hurricane Harvey and had the same type of path - gaining strength and then disappearing, gaining strength and then disappearing.
Hurricane Andrew made landfall in Florida on August 24, 1992.
Harvey began to intensify on August 24, 2017, being upgraded from a tropical storm to a hurricane.
(Updated) Some recent research I've found claims Hurricanes Harvey and Irma were created via a technique called In-Place Sequential Water Vapor Generation.
A particularly chilling detail is that Hurricane Irma, being called the largest Atlantic hurricane ever recorded, is said to have originated over Central Africa on August 24, 2017 - the same date Hurricane Andrew made landfall in 1992 and the same date Hurricane Harvey intensified to hurricane status in 2017.
Even more chilling: a 7.1 magnitude earthquake followed the hurricanes on September 19, 2017 in Mexico. This is the very same day that an 8.0 magnitude earthquake hit Mexico City in 1985, killing 5,000+ people.
With Saturn currently gaining speed direct in Sagittarius, let's establish (Saturn) what we know (Sagittarius):
We know that numerology and certain dates are utilized by the powers-that-be because of their symbolism and occult power.
We know that governments around the world have the ability to use weather as a weapon, including seeding clouds to create torrential rainfall.
We know that the spraying of chemtrails creates a blanket of cloud cover - a continual and daily practise in many countries around the world, including the United States and Canada.
We know that the HAARP project (High Frequency Active Auroral Research Program) and other technological tools have the ability to create violent weather events.
I've written on the blog before about the fact that I feel the earthquake and tsunami that set off the ongoing Fukushima nuclear crisis were man-made, potentially via HAARP activity. (See also: tsunami bombs) The clouds seen over Japan immediately following the earthquake certainly appeared suspicious.
I also believe that these unnatural disasters (as well as more traditional war manoeuvres) are being timed according to astrological events.
From a previous article:
"The Fukushima disaster occurred on March 11, 2011, on the very same day that Uranus moved from the last degree of the zodiac (29 Pisces) to the first degree of the zodiac (0 Aries).
Uranus (sudden events, shocks, uranium) + Pisces (ocean, energetic connection of life, end of era/cycle) + Aries (attacks, war, new cycle).
As Uranus entered Aries March 11, 2011, it moved into position for a seven-square series to Pluto in Capricorn (running June 2012 to March 2015) - a square series we last saw during the Great Depression and the lead-up to World War II when Uranus was transiting Aries and Pluto was transiting Cancer (1932 - 1934).
History was about to repeat, Aquarian era depopulation-style.
As soon as I saw the astrology, I knew.
See, naturally-occurring events don't happen that pat. They don't happen that precisely. They rarely follow the astrological symbology to a tee like that - at least, not on that large a scale.
The events that caused the ongoing nuclear disaster at Fukushima, Japan were planned to coincide with Uranus moving from the last degree of the zodiac (29 Pisces) to the first degree of the zodiac (0 Aries) - a shocking and traumatic (Uranus) event symbolizing the end of the astrological Piscean era and the beginning of the astrological Aquarian. One era ends, another begins - in a forced, unnatural, and horrific way.
As Uranus entered Aries, the first sign of the zodiac, the first sign of the new cycle, we entered a new era of energy weapons, technology used to attack, and a transhumanist agenda that is attempting to alter the very identity of human beings as natural, biological organisms.
They kicked it off with a bang, to say the least.
As Uranus and Pluto moved into square position, these events were designed to pick up right where World War II left off: a depopulating nuclear war against Japan and against the whole of humanity. But this time it was being waged covertly. In the same way that nuclear attacks have gone undercover with the use of depleted uranium munitions, we are now experiencing sabotage of nuclear reactors as covert nuclear war."
I have experienced unnatural weather events and unprecedented rainfall and flooding first-hand, though on a much smaller scale than the poor residents of Texas.
I've seen flooding of the agricultural zones of the prairie provinces of Canada over the past seven years, particularly in my home province of Saskatchewan. This is recurring flooding that has destroyed crops en masse, as well as property and homes, and it is flooding that has not been experienced before in remembered history.
I wrote about the unprecedented wild weather in Saskatchewan in late July/August of 2010 under the massively potent cardinal t-square involving Jupiter-Uranus in Aries, Mars-Saturn in Libra, and Pluto in Capricorn. That flooding led to 114 communities declaring themselves disaster areas, as well as widespread crop failure.
The next year was more of the same - widespread flooding of southeastern Saskatchewan in May 2011, when only one-third of the crop land in the area could be sowed. The cardinal t-square between Uranus in Aries, Saturn in Libra, and Pluto in Capricorn was still strongly in effect at that time.
I wrote about that flood in this article from July 13, 2014, "The Cardinal Configurations and Orchestrated Disasters in Major Food-Producing Areas." The flooding in 2014 occurred right in the thick of the Uranus in Aries - Pluto in Capricorn square series (2012 - 2015). Transiting Mars was in Libra at the time of the flood, and the Sun and Moon were in Cancer, creating a Cardinal Grand Cross formation with Uranus and Pluto. (All WWA articles related to weather modification can be found under that label on the right side of the page or at this link.)
This is just the tip of the iceberg, of course - people from areas around the world could chronicle similar patterns and anomalies in weather in recent years.
The flooding of some agricultural areas has coincided with severe droughts in others. Coincidental? Droughts in California, Texas, Montana, and North Dakota in recent years, to name a few, have prompted massive sell-offs in livestock, as there is no feed for the animals.
To be blunt about it: the Great Depression was just a warm-up for these fucks.
There's no better way to control people than by starving them out or destroying their homes and businesses, their ability to make a living. This has been a historical practise of establishment wealth and power against those with much less wealth and power, and it goes across races, ethnicities, and backgrounds. This includes people being "tractored off" their farm land during the Great Depression of the 1930s, often leading to starvation or malnutrition and being forced into what amounted to slave labour.
Three hundred-year floods...500-year droughts...1,000-year floods...
"Unprecedented," "largest natural disaster in history," "unseen before in our lifetimes," "record-setting rainfall," "record-setting flooding," "most powerful earthquake ever recorded."
And all happening within the past ten years. Does this seem a little suspicious? Do you notice a pattern?
Nostradamus may have predicted this stuff, but he didn't finger the people responsible. Yes, there are actual individuals responsible for this. We're being ruled by straight-up psychopaths with no regard for human life. In fact, they desire to drastically depopulate the Earth and are following plans to that end. It sure would be nice to expose them in a way that could not be refuted...
There are so many devastated lives and broken hearts in the wake of these hurricanes and earthquakes. It's monstrous in scope, and I'm so sorry to everyone affected.
But this is the power structure of Planet Earth. This is what's being intentionally brought down upon us. We can't be happy to just go along with this system as long as we have a reasonably comfortable life, as long as it doesn't affect us or our loved ones directly. We all need to see it. We all need to know in no uncertain terms who's responsible. With that awareness comes real power.
I've come to understand, after more than a decade of intensive observation, that the nefarious crimes of the big-league power players on this planet are often planned to coincide with astrological events. They are harnessing nature's energy to assist in their vicious deeds, and they are also employing a sick occult symbolism that has become a trademark of this corrupt web of power.
Hurricane Harvey was timed to coincide with the over-the-top Leo New Moon total solar eclipse on August 21.
Harvey made landfall on August 25, just as Saturn stationed direct at 21 degrees Sagittarius. This was followed by days of torrential rainfall. Saturn (the establishment, the father) stationing in the sign of religion, culture, and myth indicates a concrete "deluge myth" event tying in to the occult symbolism/mythology used by the power elite.
Anyone who picked up on the obscenely excessive hype around this eclipse might have guessed that it was being pumped up in the collective psyche for a reason. There was something monstrous in the works - yet another unnatural disaster unleashed on the people of Planet Earth by the psychopathic rulers at the top of the illegitimate pyramid scheme of power.
Which particular psychopathic rulers? It's hard to say. This is a move out of the General Pyramid Scheme of Corrupted Power Playbook, and any or all of the pseudo-elites could be involved. It's an interwoven web that spreads worldwide.
The people need to understand that these are not just random acts of nature. These are not just inevitable consequences of climate change. As bizarre as it may sound (though likely not to my regular readers), these are intentional acts being committed by very sick and very terrifying individuals in order to control the populace. Harvey is (most likely) another horrific orchestrated event in a long line of horrific orchestrated events.
Another great video by Moe Othman reports on a set of Illuminati Cards manufactured in 1975 that foretell many of the orchestrated events and disasters we've experienced over the past few decades. This includes control of the weather, as well as the tsunami and nuclear disaster in Fukushima, Japan.
In other words, no reduction in carbon emissions is going to stop this stuff.
Communication/media planet Mercury stations direct at 28 degrees Leo on September 5 in a conjunction to Mars and in a trine to Uranus at 28 degrees Aries. The Mercury-Mars conjunction was exact early this morning at 28 degrees Leo. Both the Mercury direct station and the Mercury-Mars conjunction occur on the same degree as the New Moon total solar eclipse August 21.
My hope, as always, is that people sharing information, putting two-and-two together, making connections, and scrapping together as much of the truth as we can will take the wind out of the sails of these nefarious pricks (male and female) who erroneously call themselves our leaders.
My hope is that we continue to create (Leo) our own powerful (Mars) and independent (Uranus) media (Mercury), bringing to light the powerful truth that will eliminate these illegitimate power structures and set beneficial change in motion.
This article and this blog, in general, are my offering toward those ends.
May the power of all that is good keep you safe and protected. May the power of all that is good assist and comfort those whose lives have been adversely affected by Hurricane Harvey and by all the orchestrated unnatural disasters.
