Music Alchemy Rides Again – Show Me The Good!

Standard

Astrology is powerful. Once I began studying my own chart almost 4 years ago I knew I would never use the word the “coincidence” again. In a neutral sense co-incidence is fine, it literally means incidences happening in relation to each other or at the the same time. However, since the word is weaponized to discredit real phenomenon let’s leave it alone. There are many more tools at hand and available language to describe the process of being a super-sensible sentient human and co-creating our world as we go. Every living moment, not just when awake, we are creators designing our personal universe. I wrote a piece in early March 2017 that I have not published yet that would explain what I discovered about my sleeping hours. It will be posted soon because in that article, which I am still editing, I describe my activities during sleep and what I thought was occurring. I have always had an active dream life but then I discovered upon awakening that particular morning exactly who and what was using my energy, identity and will with my consent, but not in my design. I immediately removed and revoked my consent to be used by and for anyone other than myself and for my own highest purposes. Once I did that, peace returned to my chaotic mind space and within my relationships where discord seemed to be having a party.

I have been muted, in a sense, of late for the past six months. In my silence I was formulating a new universe that I needed privacy to create and not share until the baby was gestated, so-to-speak. If you know about sonograms, people take pictures of the womb baby before it’s born. It seemed the thing to do 30 years ago and is widely used today. But, the process of sonograms to see what is an interesting scene of the unborn baby, has the effect on the baby of  blowing a foghorn into their ears within a distance of micro-inches. How would you like to have a foghorn blown into your ears from such a close distance? I wouldn’t. I imagine it’s pretty upsetting, not to mention, most likely obliterates their peaceful developing frequency at that. Anyhow, I don’t think it’s a good idea to peek inside where I can’t fit and is not my domain. You just have to wait! What’s wrong with waiting? I love waiting…zen helps me do that. But now, the baby is born. You can see it and talk to it, interact and learn all about it, even hold it.

Say hello my new universe! Welcome to my movie, my life of creating harmony within the reach of my voice and within the reach of my energetic life force to a community of interest! This is my first post in and about my new universe. All my other articles are still viable, they are channels of information as well as opinion. But now, I have a better view of the landscape and so my perceptions are broader, more mature. The same thing happened with my songwriting. My first penned effort in 1997, “Walk The Wall” was no less channeled than my latest  published album in 2016 “Another Dimension”. I’ve written lots since I published Another Dimension but no albums have been compiled since I took a “retirement” from my music career and decided I would be a writer last fall. Once I can integrate those elements, which is inevitable, the new records will come. First I had to integrate my Ascendant, Sun and Moon signs. I did that with a song called “Magnificent”. To give you a glimpse of that process I will quote the verse and chorus;

 

(backstory: Cancer Sun, Libra Moon, Capricorn Ascendant – the Cardinal “cross”)

Magnificent
c.2016 Music Alchemy
“My Sun is not online, my Moon is divine
I love all my houses all at once, to me they are all divine.
My Ascendant, you are magnificent! But, you’re almost too much.
Too many people, why can’t we all be one?”

 

So, back to astrology. I prefer to have a “healthy respect” for these powers, forces, energies and not be afraid of them. I’m so sentient that they “get” to me when I’m not looking. So, that’s why I started looking. We all are affected whether we are cognizant of it or not. There are indeed good aspects, but it’s the “we” part that makes it good. I’ve survived the recent tribulation we all just navigated to tell you about it.

Since the run-up to the New Moon, barely 48 hours prior and ever since, I have had to out-maneuver scorching Sun rays, wrestled with a surprised Pluto in my first house and won the match by pulling a disappearing act. I confronted Saturn about abusing Chiron and won the argument by holding space then reconciled them. I dodged Uranus’s lightning bolts successfully and redirected them to a hidden enemy who was successfully outed by Eris, (thank you Eris). I won a staring down contest with Mars who was trying to be a bully but overplayed his hand. I gave Neptune a hiatus, dismissed its forces for a friend who needed a well-deserved break which was authorized by Venus. I ejected a serial killer Moon beam out of the car and held my ground so I could eat ennobled food; which I was able to do a short time later. I wrestled Rahu to the ground to put him in his place using Ketu’s wisdom – it was a tie! (no surprise there!) I had Jupiter called to the carpet for his know-it-all attitude using reverse psychology and honesty until he decided to go into therapy.

Whew! It’s been a busy minute and I’m not even a fighter! It’s all attitude. It’s all trust. I fail with the Trust sometimes…I falter, I stumble, shake it off, get up again. I am convinced in what I know from my own internal compass, from the Guardians who watch over me and inscribe my every thought, word and deed, from the consistent application of the 12th dimensional platinum shield, from meditation on Source and most of all, from my awareness of what exactly is my reason for being here. Glad to be alive. Belly breathe now. Carry on…#letsdothis

What Does Your Transit Sound Like?

Standard

In a previous article I spoke about this, I found the song of the Leo New Moon. Organ Grinder in Search Of Monkey

This lovely astrologer Barbara Goldsmith has just come out with more music and astrology facts. Enjoy!

 

Organ Grinder In Search Of Monkey

Standard

This sounds fair. Leo is emanating as we speak.The Sun. And regal Regulus the Star.

Below I wanted to post this text to give a sample of a decent labor law. Regulus is here. Mars is going into Sagittarius taking no prisoners. I do not participate in politics, I am an academic. I offer this as a timely example of how this plays out. I think Mars is giving Saturn positive support, he’s the warrior for the king Regulus. Rock on Leo!

From the web:  “On the 29th of July a re-generated parliament (Regulus) came up with some structure (Saturn in Sagittarius) to harmonize within the country the foreigners, international labor laws.  “Ankara approved Thursday a new labor law specifying conditions under which foreigners can work in the country. According to the law, foreigners with long-term residence permits or work permits for at least eight years would now be able to apply for permanent work permits. Those with permanent work permits would be granted rights similar to Turkish citizens. However, they would not have the right to vote or get elected, work for civil service and do military service. Also, foreign students at Turkish universities would be allowed to work on condition that they get work permits from their employers. The Ministry of Labor and Social Security will also establish a system to meet foreign employment demands. An international labor head office within the Ministry of Labor and Social Security will also be established, according to the law.

I love astrology and we are in a beautiful position to soak in, TO RECEIVE, as a new moon is conducive to. What we are soaking in during this new moon is the upright energy of Regulus and the Leo Sun, and Mercury holding on the edge, Mars, stretching out the last bit of Scorpio.

So, I am writing a song. It was all too obvious and one of my very first experiences where my conscious mind was observing this songwriting process as a witness. I was comfortable and laughing because unusual, yes, like deja vu only in real time, you aren’t going back to anything, you are observing the present moment in parallel to the moment. Nice. Superpowers. Check.

Here is the song “bones” if you will. At first I wanted to lead with Mars which is B. But my progressions ended up in Saturn, one of which is F#. So, I fiddled with my charts looking for clues. Literally, I feel like a lock-picker.

“I’m just a puzzle soldier picking the locks”  Polina speaks of the New Moon – be small

Banging at the piano….sharpened pencil, clean paper, writing what appears to others as hieroglyphics, and suddenly, after a long period of silence, (I’m not kidding) my computer randomly plays in my playlist a practice tape I made for flamenco and pop rhumba style music. It is blazing along and I realize I am in that key, only it’s E not B. Okay, so I play along with my practice tape that I have looping and looping and I discover the Lead is The Sun, not Mars. The Sun, in line with Regulus is leading the parade followed by The Moon in shadow of this blazing spectacle. Then Mercury, who is SO READY to get into Virgo is expanding in his voice, he is third. Mars also holding at 29 degrees, resonates and leaves a yummy taste in your mouth. He is 4th not in dignity, but in the progression. This music I am writing and recording right now. I will upload the track when complete, today hopefully. You can hear what this new  moon sounds like. It is indeed beautiful harmonious music of the spheres lead by the Sun. Add to astrology forecasts what the key is. In other words, what is the frequency? I now can do this. Thank you ALL THAT IS.

Blood On The Ground

Standard

Blood On The Ground

I know that where ever I have been, where ever I go, I leave a mark on that place, tracks, if you will. This song is about realizing that much blood of humanity has been spilled on the ground. Some of this Blood could be those you knew, or someone in your family. They are never forgotten but something tells me it will be discovered that even one drop of blood is a fractal of the whole person. And if so, then the blood on the ground is a person and if it was me, I would want someone to ask me how I was, if I was okay, or to just acknowledge that it happened. So I did ask them. No matter where they are, they have a right to live. biggood

Maybe me bringing them along and listening to their stories will make them feel better. Not alone. It may sound far fetched, but, is it really beyond the scope of reality?

lyrics

Blood on the Ground

There’s Blood on the ground
I can feel it, can you feel it underfoot?
I’m leaving tracks everywhere I go
It doesn’t matter, who’s gonna know?

Take them along, listen to their stories.
Ask them how they’ve been.
Take them along, listen to their stories
They have a right to live.

Welcome Home From Above

Today you shine with the Sun

Your houses are new, the building has begun

Fill your life with growing things,

The moon and the stars and rocks all sing

We honor you our sweet daughter

We truly love you in all ways that matter

You survived it all, so now rejoice

For the world is open wide for you

There is no earthly gain that will suffice

Even though the mountains and fields are full of life

Real nuggets of gold are in your soul

And can never part from you

We surround you on this day

With a love so bright

There will be no mistake of who you are

And why you are here…

The Milky Way and all its might

Will still be well, through the dark night

The father is sure, the mother is kind

Not just on earth, but in your mind

You have all that you need

Don’t go looking for more

All that awaits, all that is in store

Is all you can imagine, all that you adore!

So sing! We love to hear you sing!

The Logos, the Music of the Spheres

Creating streets paved with your feet

And Golden Rays that are providing the heat

The warmth of the Sun, the Upgrade of Love

The dark night is over…Welcome home from above.

Audio in progress (Capo 4 frets C# key)

Listen to Mimi! Chiron Retrograde

Standard

Chiron retrograde now is a grand ending to my waning Chiron return, which was over the top! Just as Neptune retrograde is like the tarot card reversed, Chiron retrograde is a review of recently healed wounds which are healing over to functional state. I would think by Chiron Direct in December I will be 100%.  It was a very long process, 2 1/2 years. If you persevere, you will get through it. Keep on. It won’t kill you and the loss of the density  is palpable. It is at times a shock but in a good way, still a shock, you will change depending on the level of healing. Mine was super deep, of necessity, and I can climb out of the cave  that I have been in since February now that Chiron is in retrograde. It’s really amazing. I know it’s not DONE, but this part of the process I can say with a huge sigh of relief, it’s over now. I feel ready to stand up at least and shake off the residue, the minor sweat of the last few pulses.

The very last pulse was a few days ago. I will describe this experience because I knew I had mastered a lesson and the empowerment I felt by solving my problem without looking outside of myself, was quietly triumphant.

I have been very sensitive lately and having inspiration in nutrients for my triangle being. I began to feel outside the gates, outside the village, I could see but not touch. I swirled in a pool of potential and lightning strikes and thunder were frequent but dull. Like watching television, which I never do, but it felt like that, the zombie flotation simulator. But inside the pain was escalating, it would not be ignored. Flashes of injustices startled me and I had to look at it. Stare at it, damnit! I was afraid but the fear was blocking my well. I saw a deep well and I knew it was my own water, to love however I wanted to, to give it away and share more love wherein, the well was full again. But it is dark and lots of unknown to wonder about. Suddenly every little drop in the well mattered and I wanted to get to it and drink. But the pain…omg. Like a knife inside my heart squeezing the life force out of me. WHAT IS IT? WHAT DO YOU WANT? I broke. Hot salty tears flowing like damn burst and I knew I better act quick. My witnessing self was trying to help. I drew a long hot borax magnesium baking soda bath and I cried all my tears into the water until I was exhausted. Like I said, it’s over now. Here is a poem I got a few months ago and I keep coming back to it. It comforts me.

LOVE SUPREME

NOISE, it’s been played, had it’s heyday, it’s moment in the Sun.
White noise, scrambled eggs, gyro scope, deep well fills with water.
Here comes the water. It’s not just rain, it’s tears.
Oh, the horror of those years!
The factuals and actuals, fractals and spheres
The cover of darkness shattered by those tears.
Distorted words restored by lovers of truth with the sword wielded by the warriors of THE VIOLET FLAME.
The nervous nebulous sphere of trauma embodied in us…
BEHOLD! THE SPHERE TURNS TO GOLD!
The alchemy of music sweeping, calling on the Guardians, crying out to Joy, saying inside “It’s over now! You are safe! Be at peace!”
Love rushes in. Creative destruction is Love Supreme.

The new moon will be my COMPLETION cleansing. By my actual birthday which coincidentally is ON the Cancer Full Moon on the 19th of July, I will present myself to the world a changed woman, infinitely stronger and wiser, celebrating life in real time. so much love…
