& Your Zodiac Oracle  May 22, 2007
with Joseph-Mark Cohen
 
Prelude: We are approaching a pivotal moment according to all the sacred calendars. This past month, your guide has been engaging in a touch of transformational time travel. First stop was a visit to Damanhur, the extraordinary community in northern Italy that features an underground temple complex that some call the eighth wonder of the world. You can learn more about Damanhur from issue 36 of  Enlightenment magazine. If you are interested in a visit, just go to info@DamanhurGuide.com. My Wesak full moon (square Saturn & Neptune), was both majestic & perplexing. The border crossing between  Pisces & Aquarius is riddled with visionary anomalies. Next stop was Assisi for a yoga retreat at Ananda ashram featuring pure Piscean devotional asanas along with some great Italian dining. Damanhur propelled your Zodiac Oracle through the photon belt; Assisi pulled us back through the needle's eye to the heart of the 13th Century. Returning to Turtle Island, I have recently experienced a sustained ceremonial at a Mayan village gathering created by Martin Prechtel, author of Secrets of the Talking Jaguar. The temple this shaman creates is a re-creation of the village heart. I plan to invite Martin to offer a ceremonial weekend in the Kootenays next summer. So find yourself a copy of his extraordinary book and stay tuned...
 
Portals: So what is happening astrologically, you may well ask? Big cosmic things. We have recently experienced a supernova explosion that is helping cosmologists understand the relationship between matter and antimatter. A very intense solar flare has jumped off the Sun and is ruffling the feathers of our magnetic field. This tends to make the emotional and mental bodies spin in opposite directions. We are at a transformational portal in the Mayan Calendar as interpreted by Carl Johan Calleman and Barbara Hand Clow. A great beam of light is arriving now as the Sun enters Gemini. This is likely to break up ancient glacial fear patterns that have been handcuffing our evolutionary growth for centuries. And yes time is speeding up to lightspeed and beyond. On June 16, aka Bloomsday, Mercury goes retrograde, so get out your pint of Guinness and fiddle your way back to a greener time. On June 19 the Sun is in a tango dance with underworld Pluto. On the 20th, we collectively gaze into the black hole at the heart of our Milky Way galaxy. Summer Solstice on the 21st is our chance to stop time and discover our indiginous human heart chakra. So  surrender your leather and lace, gather your beads & feathers, and boldly go....

Zodiacal Oracles for June

Aries: I don't want this to go to your head, but the omens are all in your favour. Mars is summoning  samurai by your side all month. Jupiter & Saturn are standing by like bodyguards in your friendly firesign neighbourhood. So you can play a few coyote pranks or rob a bank with Bonnie & Clyde. Just go easy with those hot chili peppers & your breath of fire...
 
Taurus: I sense you have been bathing in the Garden of Eden & are becoming far too fond of your creature comforts, hammock time, hot rock massages & passive solar residual income. It is time for you to sell off some assets & see how you fare by travelling with souls that intend to rock your boat. If you take my advice, you will jump up and live again!
 
Gemini: If there is anyone on this beautiful planet  capable of alchemizing the Shift in a way that mitigates suffering & enhances the beauty way, it is you, dear Gemini. You are the master of what we call: the unbearable lightness of Pure Being. Still a peek into your own personal shadow may prove rewarding this month.

Cancer:  Mercury is crawling through your sign now. You will be busy with coming and goings, cosmic riddles and domestic mysteries, perplexing successes and magnificent failures. You may  be challenged by an Aries & irked by a know-it-all Sagittarian. Your task is to  love the Great Mystery &  keep track of the little ones. Music is your ally... 

Leo:  At long last, Venus is about to pay a visit. This will bring love, money, beauty & p'zazz to those who have a leonine sun, moon or ascendent. Art objects will be gifted to you or purchased on your credit card. A new dream will arise in that uneasy emptiness that has filled your heart space for far too long. An old flame returns on June 30th...   

Virgo: I know of  Virgos who are pioneering social structures, visionary communities, renewable resources & utilities, zero point energies, recycling depots, bittersweet chocolate businesses & superfood initiatives. So, don't hesitate, just do it. Become a bold bioneer....
 
Libra:  You are being challenged to the max to let go of outworn harmonic habits patterns and get out on that dance floor & dance. Dance with the wild ones & the shy ones. Flirt with the untouchables & the tactiles. Learn how heartbreak opens the love portal as a bubbling spring of pure water.  Bottled at the Source...

Scorpio: In the medicine world, you are as much  rattlesnake as scorpion. And yes you are an eagle who can spot your prey a mile away. Or a phoenix who gets a big fat insurance cheque when your nest catches fire. But back to that rattlesnake. You can attack one roadrunner at a time. Two roadrunners have your number. You attack the visible one, the invisible catches you from behind. The moral of your oracle: look both ways before you leap....

SagittariusJupiter is retrograde now. You may have missed a few stepping stones that are essential to the manifestation of your vision. So just adjust the mirrors & tinker for awhile with strategies & designs. If you are creating a new cd, experiment with rhythms & soundscapes to augment the melody that is haunting  you.. ..

Capricorn:  Congratulations are in order for you. You have shown both courage and cunning. You have transformed your fear/folly with a burst of bravado.  You are like the badger that makes the lion head back to the den for cover. Your bumper sticker reads: I never sweat the small stuff....
 
Aquarius:  How far can you really push that envelope? How long can you get away with being a provocative pest, an audacious alchemist, a political maverick? You will need to come up with just the right ratio of Magician and Fool, Hermit & High Priestess this month. The omens suggest a turtle time out, a retreat from the fast lane. Be like the lowly scarab that slowly moves the disc of Ra through Sahara sand. All night long...
 
Pisces:  The good news is the trine from Venus in Cancer. This enhances your emotional life. Jupiter & Pluto are still aiming medicine arrows at you from the heart of the Galaxy. The Centaur has a slingshot. So it looks like a karmic payback. Goliath having a go at King David. So you had best discover that secret chord. The one Leonard claims... will please the Lord. Your very own Halleluyah...
