Hello All,

I'm liking the Moon Venus conjunction in Sag trine Uranus, and Jupiter in the 4th.  We are birthing-building nurturing heart-centered familial truths with each other.

Cheers!

Thank you Linda and Cat for opening this space.  It has great promise to be a wonderful healing and teaching experience for all involved.  The current Uranus-SN, SN-Eris conjunction is certainly stirring things up and creating some room (this room?) for change, not to mention Jupiter and Lilith adding more fire to the mix. We are blessed to live in interesting times, yes? Time to move past restrictions and claim our truth.

Blessings, gratitude, and prayers for peace,

Daniel

Hello Cat, Skywalker, Imsara, and everyone!


I want everyone to know that Cat at an AMAZING ideas person, and she also has the most incredible natural conflict resolution skills .... so thank you Cat so much for sharing this task with me!  I could never do this alone.  So happy that this is a GROUP project!


Yes, Skywalker, the chart is pretty good for our purposes!  Pluto in the 9th, and a good bunch of planets in the 7th (sharing), and in the 8th (EA Soul depth).  There are Mars skipped steps, with resolution through the North Node Libra 6th.  The PPP in the 3rd .... so lots of analysis, detail, information, service, sharing and caring!


So good to have you on board Imsara!  I look forward to your input very much indeed!



Cheers,

Linda

Hi Rad,

I was mostly asking about general guidelines to keep in mind relative to an intensification of the Kundalini awakening process as I have seen some negative results in which people have a hard time going on with their normal lives.

Interesting that you mention Gopi Krishna as last night while doing some research on the matter I stumbled upon this video of him explaining his process:

It seems the best one can do is simply be as pure as possible on all levels and go with whatever happens.

Could we say, in western terminology, for those that have no notion of eastern concepts and are going thru a Kundalini awakening, that this energy is Source energy flowing thru them as they come closer to the Source?

Thank you Rad

All the best



Hi Skywalker,

Yes ...and remember Kundalini is the natural evolutionary force within the Soul encased in a body ... an actual physiological substance that is created via the spinal plexus, root chakra, that is regulated by DESIRE, the desire to return to that which is the Origin OF All Things.

God Bless, Rad

Hi Linda, Cat and all,

Nice new phase conjunction between Mars and Pluto in the 9th house!

Seems well thought out and I´m sure it will be a great learning experience for all who participate.

All the best

Hi Linda and All,

The chart for this project looks interesting itself. Good job on all you've done. I want everyone to know that although Linda is sharing credit with me, I have only provided her with a few ideas, Linda has done all of the rest and she has done a thorough job. I'm looking forward to the first chart.

Cinder’s paws healed; bear cub will spend winter in Idaho

AP
11/23/2014

Cinder, the black bear cub burned in the Carlton complex wildfires, is moving to Idaho for the winter.

The veterinarian for Lake Tahoe Wildlife Care, where Cinder has been recovering since August, has released the cub from his medical care, and Cinder will leave Sunday for the Idaho Black Bear Rehabilitation Center to hibernate for the winter, according to a post on the organization’s Facebook page.

In the spring, once Cinder’s now-healed paws have had a chance to toughen up, she will be released into the wild, the post said.

Cinder was found under a horse trailer in the Methow Valley, where a fire burned about 400 square miles and destroyed 300 homes. The bear had suffered third-degree burns on her paws. A state Department of Fish and Wildlife officer captured her, and a volunteer pilot flew Cinder to California. When she arrived at Lake Tahoe Wildlife Care on Aug. 4, she weighed only 39 pounds. At her latest weigh-in, Cinder was up to 83 pounds.

The House That Kochs Bought Passes Bill Muzzling EPA Scientists

By: Rmuse

Saturday, November, 22nd, 2014, 2:00 pm   

For many Americans it is stunning that in the 21st  Century there is a vibrant anti-science movement, especially in a highly technological nation. Of course, there is a reason two specific groups hate science and it is either because it debunks their superstition and mythos, or exposes their dirty industry practices as detrimental to the nation’s security and the people’s health. Republicans, particularly those beholden to the fossil fuel industry, claim that since they are “not scientists,” they can’t comment on, or accept,  that fossil fuel emissions are responsible for anthropogenic climate change threatening the nation’s health and security, and now they are attempting “real scientists” who can explain climate change.

On Tuesday, to ensure that the “right kind of scientists” are doling out advice on environmental protections, Republicans in the House passed legislation to guarantee that oil industry scientists loyal to the Kochs, and not independent scientists, serve on the Environmental Protection Agency’s Science Advisory Board. The rule change prohibits scientists not in the employ of the oil industry from talking about, or giving advice  based on, independent scientific research, and prevents them from applying for grants from the EPA for further research.

The bill does, however, make it easier for “scientists” with financial ties to big oil and corporations to serve on the SAB and set environmental policy. The EPA, and the SAB, already allows some scientists and advisors with oil industry “expertise” to serve on the board, but the bill’s sponsor, Chris Stewart (R-UT) says it is not enough because the Koch brothers’ interests cannot control the direction of the EPA; his legislation remedies that.


The bill, the Science Advisory Board Reform Act, fulfills all of the industry, and Republicans’ requirements for their vision of environmental policy. Stewart has never concealed his profound distrust of scientists, an ardent  hatred of the EPA, and support for the oil and gas industry bordering on religious fanaticism; a typical Republican. In fact, the Mormon Stewart not only disbelieves real science proving the existence of climate change, he openly wants and has called for, like most Republicans, the summary elimination of the EPA over something related to faith.

According to Stewart, the SAB required a Koch-inspired change and oil industry-financed “scientists” to counterbalance those other experts for the sake of transparency. He said “We’re losing valuable insight and valuable guidance because we don’t include them, (oil industry-funded) scientists in the process” of advising on environmental policies. Democrats in the House did not believe Stewart’s motivation had anything whatsoever to do with transparency and everything to do with “balancing” scientific reality with oil industry fallacies.

Representative Jim McGovern (D-MA) was blunt in saying, “I get it, you don’t like science. And you don’t like science that interferes with the interests of your corporate clients. But we need science to protect public health and the environment.” Representative Eddie Bernice Johnson concurred with McGovern and said, “The supposed intent of the bill is to improve the process of selecting advisors, but in reality, the bill would allow the board to be stacked with industry representatives, while making it more difficult for academics to serve. It benefits no one but the industry, and it harms public health.” That is, after all, the intent of the bill that Americans are going to see a lot more of when Republicans begin repaying the Koch brothers for their multimillion dollar investment in buying Congress.

Real scientists, various environmental groups, and real health experts, the people protecting Americans,  rightly cited the real intent of the Koch-inspired bill; “compromise the scientific independence of the SAB and EPA,” and at the least “increase the length of time it takes the EPA to implement clean air and water regulations,” and if Republicans can fulfill the Koch’s wildest dreams, make it impossible for the Environmental Protection Agency to function. The Union of Concerned Scientists (UCS), real academics, fervently came out against the Koch bill and were outraged that the bill prohibits real scientists on the SAB from discussing peer-reviewed research they may have been involved or have an academic interest in such as the effect of carbon emissions on climate change.

In a letter to Congress prior to the bill’s passage, the UCS director Andrew A. Rosenberg wrote that, “This bill effectively turns the idea of conflict of interest on its head, with the bizarre presumption that corporate experts with direct financial interests are not conflicted while academics who work on these issues are. Of course, a scientist with expertise on topics the Science Advisory Board addresses likely will have done peer-reviewed studies on that topic. That makes the scientist’s evaluation more valuable, not less.” But Mr. Rosenberg fails to understand that valuable scientific evaluation is exactly what the Koch-Republicans do not want; or they would not have passed a bill prohibiting real scientists from both serving on the SAB or discussing important scientifically-researched empirical data as it relates to environmental protections.

The only good news, thus far, is that in the current incarnation of the Senate, there is no companion oil industry bill to take up. That will surely change when Republicans begin doling out remunerative gifts to the Koch’s for funding their campaigns and handing them control of the Senate. Also, in what is proving to be one of the lone champions for protecting the environment, national security, and Americans’ health, the Obama Administration has pledged to veto the bill if it makes it to the President’s desk. However, now that the Koch brothers control of both houses of Congress, there will be a flood of Republican legislation either muzzling real scientists or dispensing of the one agency protecting Americans health, air, and water; the EPA.
