Mars in Gemini Square Neptune in Pisces and Willow is Plagiarized by a New Age Ascension Promoter

I'm really not sure of the alchemical energetics on this one. Willow the staunch New Age critic, having shit-kicked the ascension ideology more times than she can count, has her solstice article plagiarized by "Tyberonn the Earth Keeper" in a New Age newsletter sent out to his mailing list. It's quite the Mars in Gemini square Neptune in Pisces scenario (exact 1:45 a.m. tomorrow morning).

I have to say, my words folded into standard New Age ascension ideology really doesn't seem like a wise admixture to me.

Certain sentences were changed to New Age-ify it, but it comes straight from this April 22, 2011 post:

A Cardinal Grand Cross Summer Solstice and Triple Eclipse Season: Here We Go Again

The link to my last triple eclipse article from 2009 is even still included in the body of the post.

I orginally found it posted on the website Ascension for All. I e-mailed the woman who runs the site to tell her, and she replied that she got the information from a newsletter sent out from Tyberonn.

This is what was posted under Tyberonn's name:

Cardinal Grand Cross Summer Solstice

"Cardinal Grand Cross Summer Solstice in Triad Eclipse Season Summer 2011


Another Grand Cross is coming, and it’s happening in the overlapping wash of 3 eclipses and a mega Solstice. And wash is the key word. Let it wash you clean! Fact is the planet is headed into very similar astro conditions as the intense summer of 2010 with a Cardinal Grand Cross forming by the June 21, 2011 Summer Solstice and the
entry of the Sun into Cancer…but this time the Astro-Gods aren’t fooling around…they
really means business! 3 Eclipses, a Solstice and Grand Cross…sheesh !… So get
ready to have your world rocked !

That same energy while intense, does require you to stay positive and focused, and
fight off the heavy-duty, industrial strength waves of lethargy. But stay on point,
this energy can also be utilized for great gains. Yes, so it will be hard, but
so has the last 2 years , and that which doesn’t defeat you can make you stronger!
Really !! Get ready to release and clean house.

** Gemini New Moon: June 1, 2011 at 4:03 p.m. CDT solar eclipse at 11 degrees

** Sagittarius Full Moon: June 15, 2011 at 3:14 p.m., total lunar eclipse24 degrees

** Cancer New Moon: July 1, 2011 at 3:54 a.m., partial solar eclipse at 9 degrees

In addition to the 3 eclipses and solstice, Mercury will enter Cancer June 16 and
kick off a two-month Cardinal Grand Cross. There are two oppositions forming four
squares among the cardinal signs. It is kept strong as Mercury, the Sun, Venus and
then Mars in Cancer trigger the Cardinal Grand Cross configuration into late August
opposite Pluto in Capricorn with Uranus in Aries opposite Saturn in Libra. Saturn
in Libra stations direct June 12 at 10 degrees. So yes, you are in another crucible,
purifying, boiling away what blocks you. That’s not easy. In the cardinal signs,
these aspects are forcing us to make our moves under tense and pressure-filled

Let’s be clear: we’re taking the directions that are being gravitationally motivated,
almost force fed.Its coming on like a freight train, a locomotive.

So you may even find relationships that you thought on one level were fine, actually
pause or end, sort of or a stepping away period, even from friends and loved one
takes place. There is a reason for it, even if you can’t initially see it. A space
is given that can lead to a new birth of who you are. So these relationship ‘break-ups’are sometimes ‘no-fault’ endeavors. In this crucible scenario, it is simply a time to move inward and evolve without carrying any baggage with you. Often when we step into newly opened space, an emergence of redefined leadership can position itself for all involved. Even with initial levels of confusion and duress. So suffice it to say that this 2011 summer season , things are even more astro-intense than last year.

In 2011 there is even less room for error or for denial. Last summer, the 2010 Grand-Cross configuration was actually a cardinal t-square with the fourth leg of Saturn in
late Virgo making it an energetic Grand Cross. It was a Grand Cross by orb (degree),
but it was not truly a Cardinal Grand Cross because Saturn was in a mutable sign.

This summer, Saturn’s in Libra, and so the 2011 Cardinal Grand-Cross is the full-on
real deal. So the GC of 2010 was the dress rehearsal! So get ready, get your ducks
in a row, and make 2011 work for you ! … Because in addition, Uranus will be
highly potent, pulling into a retrograde station July 9 at 4 degrees Aries. As it
stations, Uranus will be within a degree of its first exact square to Pluto in Capricorn at 5 degrees Capricorn within the Cardinal Grand Cross formation. This is some lightning-hot intensity ahead of the first exact Uranus-Pluto square June 23, 2012.

If people were able to resist or deny the grand-scale movements and global upheaval
initiated (and forced) during the cardinal t-square summer of 2010, that will change
this summer, the Cardinal Grand Cross summer of 2011, there is no hiding under the
rug. So if there is a hidden obstruction, an ego balance or a bad-habit skeleton
hidden away in the emotional closet, expect it to face you front and center.

Use the Solstice

Use the Solstice of June 21 to recharge, its a brief refuge, but also an empowerring
one. It will allow you the needed energy to use the eclipses for examining and self
redefinaition, release and re-balance.

But avoid getting overwhelmed, in this intensity there is always a flip side…
try not to get depressed or fall into anger outburst. Manage this and you will find
you can utilize this energy for the positive. Its a great amplified energy to manifest within. Take time to meditate.

Sagittarius North Node

But despite the intensity, good things can happen. With the North Node transiting
Sagittarius, there will be renewed optimism and expansion in our lives between the
chaos and intensity. It’s when we’re pushed to our breaking points and beyond that
the power of our inherent wisdom, and strength gains and proves its real mettle.

The versions of truth being portrayed on this planet – even the supposed alternative
versions – are not even close to the real story. More of the true picture begins
emerging in 2011. This is both in the individual and mass global realms. Truth
is being revealed as the shadow is replaced by the light.

As Jupiter enters Taurus June 4 and becomes the depositor of the North Node, we
draw on the wisdom of simplicity, goodness in basics, groundedness, reserve, and
one of the most important aspects of humanity’s continuation on Planet Earth -
endurance. Like the bull, we persevere. We dig in.

Triple Eclipse Season

The Cardinal Grand Cross at the northern hemisphere’s Summer Solstice this June
is sandwiched in a triple eclipse season, which includes a total lunar eclipse at
24 degrees Sagittarius conjunct the North Node.

We’re not going to be able to hold standard positions in the same old fort this
summer. Everything is on the move. The cardinal points are triggered all at once,
and there’s no avoiding it, no hiding, it will confront you wherever you are. There
is no possibility of damming ourselves up against the force of what needs to move.
Things are not as they were, and we come to understand more fully what that means
in this energy. And that message varies with each individual. But change will happen.

Eclipses usually produce a between-spaces, unglued energy, resulting in big emotional
back-drop changes and sometimes involving shattering events. The timing of global
socio-political events is often tied to these points….but so is individual shift.
Big shift. Eclipses happen every six or so months and are basically New and Full
Moons that involve a more exact alignment than usual of the Sun, Earth and Moon
and are considered more potent than standard New and Full Moons because of it. There
are usually two – a Full Moon eclipse and a New Moon eclipse – though three is not
all that rare….but these are always much more powerful in threes.

Two New Moons in Cancer and 3-Eclipse Season, All Wrapped Up in Pluto [http://r20.rs6.net/tn.jsp?llr=fmz86ncab&et=1106105004954&s=0&e=001GcQyVDdKbUpyfLhOQBSc_kUJWE4kyQYB7l99FjD-0H-d9PPuKnKAFkZTilKc18a3x6gfSfbsvvMVIICtQaILuNt4UNinyGmy9uXh2pSRDW-vZ8clJy7HPgt3-7Accc41gitsv8mDKnaj5aLERf_EqJqhMm_3CYwd4lq-Q3c1lvi54V_X-Vuj6g==]

This summer we have three eclipses (Gemini New Moon, Sagittarius Full Moon, Cancer
New Moon) in combination with the two-month Cardinal Grand Cross, shaking our foundations and spurring movement that much more.Its a time to self examine, be ready for surprises, redefine relationships , and manifest highest intent.

This period extends through July, but the Triad-Solstice Crucible reachers is finale
on the last of the Triple Eclipses on 1 July, 2011. The Cardinal Grand Cross Energies
extend further, into mid August. Time to clean house ! 2012 is almost here…

Sorry, Tyberonn. Plagiarism wasn't cool in Grade 11 English, and it sure isn't cool now - especially when you're using the work of a person who opposes your schtick to the core.

To be continued...


It turns out it wasn't even Tyberonn who plagiarized the article but someone who sent out Tyberonn's newsletter for him.

What a Neptunian clusterfuck.

Yep, I see it. I am use to seeing © symbols directly following an article or media presentation.

Yeah, I think I read somewhere that all you need is one citation visible on your blog? But it definitely might help to include in every post. Will consider that.

"I have to say, my words folded into standard New Age ascension ideology really doesn't seem like a wise admixture to me."

Jeez, I was thinking the same. I'm sorry, this situation isn't funny, it's annoying, but reading Tyberonn's version almost made soda come out of my nose! There's a touch of... irony (?) here. Is 'irony' the right word? There are so many wrong ways to use it, and I'm not that smart.

Anyway, your post is so so so much better. I wouldn't call this a clusterfuck-- it just feels more like one of those obnoxious bumps in the road one doesn't expect to hit :). Good on you for calling Tyberonn out on b.s., though-- well-deserved!


Willow said...

No, it's totally funny AND ironic. (And you're very smart!) I feel ridiculous even posting about it, actually. It's like someone's pulling my leg...very Neptunian. But this always happens with me and the New Age. It's really insane.

When I was writing the e-mail to Tyberonn, I'm looking at the greeting, and it's:

Hello, Tyberonn;

And all I could think of was the Seinfeld tone "Hellooo, Newman."

And then to find out it's actually Tyberonn's (wo)man behind the curtain a la Wizard of Oz who is writing this stuff and sending it out as Tyberonn in the newsletter.

It's just...wow.

And neither camp seems to understand why it was wrong to completely plagiarize the article and merge it with New Age mumbo jumbo. Sigh.

msfullroller said...

Wow is all I can say, though not surprising at all.

Keep up the great work!

This reminds me of a guy on line who wrote that people could talk about ascension all they wanted to,but as far as he was concerned,leaving ones body looked like death to him..Kauai

Willow said...

Ha. Exactly.

But then there are also the New Agers who preach that we won't actually leave Earth. Those who are "vibrating highly enough" will just move into a totally new dimension outside all the problems of the current human condition on planet Earth, and they won't even be able to see the poor and downtrodden (and vice versa)!

All this will really be due to monied privilege, of course, (mostly white, monied privilege) so I don't see how that's any different from the scene we've had going on here for the past few millenia?
