Here’s the question from a fellow reader who e-mailed this to me:
There have been numerous trans-Neptunian objects found, some categorized as dwarf planets, some as centaurs or minor planets which are more like a cross between a small planet and comets. So deciphering the objects and their meaning is going to take some time. I’ve also decided to try using sidereal information which is basically the astronomically correct information tweaked for the slow progression of the ages which is basically the tilt of our planet from Pisces into Aquarius. So far it’s about 24 degrees off. There is a branch of modern astrologers who use sidereal information which is also used in Vedic astrology. However this is complicated by the energy invested in the old system which also seems to be fairly accurate about the psychology associated with the old tropical placements.
As we get closer to 2012 I’ve been feeling we are headed for a sort of time warp, not necessarily something we would notice in the ordinary world. At first I likened it to a flat sheet of paper (space/time) that was being bent upward at the corners into the shape of a cup, but now I have the feeling it is most likely a naturally occurring phenomena caused (most likely) by a star turning into a black hole and the ripple caused by the event in space-time which would be more akin to a stone being thrown in water, causing a ripple effect. The original event of the star collapsing into itself and becoming a black hole could have happened 1000 billion years ago, but the disturbance is only now being felt by us as the ripple begins to hit us. This would be an entirely natural phenomena, but not one we would have ever experienced as we are a young race and these events happen over tremendous spans of time.
How exactly it will effect us I’m not entirely sure, it maybe as unnoticeable to the ordinary person as astrology and astronomical calculations shift by a matter of degrees or just seconds, or it may cause a tremendous shift in our planetary motion around the sun. I would imagine it would depend on the size of the space-time wave and also what exactly a wave like that would or could do. Perhaps the Mayans saw the supernova event and realized there would be some sort of ripple effect happening here in 2012. Maybe they knew about space-time waves and guessed from a sudden burst in the sky that this would cause a magnetic disturbance of sorts. I would doubt they knew abut black holes or understood that when a star collapsed on itself it turned into one, but you never know.
Whatever they did know it seems that time (as Terrance McKenna observed) does seem to be speeding up (and that’s not just because I’m getting older). McKenna’s theory that everyday was made up of one day in the past, one day in the future mixed with the present seems at least symbolically accurate. He believed as we got closer to 2012 time would speed up meaning we would cycle through things that would have taken much longer to cycle through in the past, such as the dark ages in a matter of a few years. I think he was onto something as this feeling I’m getting about the ripple or time-wave feels like that. I think however in his theory we cycled so fast we ended up in a parallel dimension which might be possible but seems doubtful. The universe is dramatic in long epoch time, but not in terms of human life spans.
Besides having a sick baby, I’ve been preoccupied with working on a theory involving the dwarf planets so I’m sorry I have been remiss in answering questions and I promise to get back into the swing of it soon.
This theory is complex and will take some time to work out. In the mean time I’ve been doing a lot of research not just on the planets but on the Gods/Goddesses they are named after and the time period in which the planet was found. It’s interesting to note that a plethora of planets were found just after the turn of this century. Obviously, technology has advanced and this is a large part of the recent discoveries but it’s not all of it. Pluto was discovered in the 1930s during the rise of Hitler, the A-bomb and Stalin. Interestingly it is actually smaller then the recently discovered Eris.
So far their are 8 named dwarf planets (with many more to come over the next several years) and 8 traditional planets. This karmic number and the fact that it is doubled seems significant. Perhaps each sign has a dual or (as I suspect will end up being the case) triple ruler-ship.
My gut tells me there should be three planetary rulers for each sun sign symbolizing our threefold nature; the lower self (the id), the middle self (or ego) and the higher self (the divine self or the super-ego).
The mix of mythological characters making up this hodge podge of dwarf planets seems to reflect shadow sides and very evolved energy which leads me to believe that we are now entering an age of self-awareness that will lead to an evolutionary shift. We will either be steered down the path toward Armageddon by the nutjobbers (destroying everything) or spring forward in our spiritual evolution and chose life.
The fact that the outer planets have been making intense aspects in late signs for the past 40 years or so leads me to believe our planet is attracting many old souls to fight for Her and the human race. But I also believe on the other side of that pendulum there are just as many immature, selfish, destructive, chaotic and mean spirited souls (in varying degrees on both sides of course) pushing us toward our extinction.
So I’m going to just leave off with a few choice pieces of information about the myths of these newly discovered heavenly bodies in hopes that it inspires and illuminates. Over the next few months I’ll try to put all of the information together into some organized thought and apply it astrologically.
Here is some research I’ve gathered if anyone is interested about 2 of the 8. I’ll post more each night so no one gets overwhelmed.
In Roman mythology, Orcus was a god of the underworld, punisher of broken oaths, more equivalent to Plutothan to the Greek Hades. The origins of Orcus may have lain in Etruscan religion. Orcus was a name used by Roman writers to identify a Gaulish god of the underworld. The Etruscan so-called “Tomb of the Orcus” atTarquinia is a misnomer, when the first discoverers took as Orcus a figure of a Cyclops. Generalized connotations of “Orcus” have made it a popular name for providing an instant “demonic” atmosphere. InDungeons & Dragons, Orcus is a demon prince, and lord of the undead. Orcus also appears in the gameNetHack. This is in good part because Orcus’ name is the origin of the words “orca” and “orc“; the latter popularized by J.R.R. Tolkien in his “Lord of the Rings” trilogy.
Sedna is a very significant figure in Inuit mythology. There are a number of different versions of the myth of Sedna.
As the legend goes, Sedna was a beautiful Inuit girl who lived with her father. She was very vain and thought she was too beautiful to marry just anyone. Time and time again she turned down hunters who came to her camp wishing to marry her. Finally one day her father said to her “Sedna, we have no food and we will go hungry soon. You need a husband to take care of you, so the next hunter who comes to ask your hand in marriage, you must marry him.” Sedna ignored her father and kept brushing her hair as she looked at her reflection in the water.
Soon her father saw another hunter approaching their camp. The man was dressed elegantly in furs and appeared to be well-to-do even though his face was hidden. Sedna’s father spoke to the man. “If you wish to seek a wife I have a beautiful daughter . She can cook and sew and I know she will make a good wife.” Under great protest, Sedna was placed aboard of the hunters kayak and journeyed to her new home. Soon they arrived at an island. Sedna looked around. She could see nothing. No sod hut, no tent, just bare rocks and a cliff. The hunter stood before Sedna and as he pulled down his hood, he let out and evil laugh. Sedna’s husband was not a man as she had thought but a raven in disguise. She screamed and tried to run, but the bird dragged her to a clearing on the cliff. Sedna’s new home was a few tufts of animal hair and feathers strewn about on the hard, cold rock. The only food she had to eat was fish. Her husband, the raven, brought raw fish to her after a day of flying off in search of food.
Sedna was very unhappy and miserable. She cried and cried and called her father’s name. Through the howling arctic winds Sedna’s father could hear his daughter’s cries. He felt guilty for what he had done as he knew she was sad. Sedna’s father decided it was time to rescue his daughter. He loaded up his kayak and paddled for days through the frigid arctic waters to his Sedna’s home. When he arrived Sedna was standing on the shore. Sedna hugged her father then quickly climbed into his kayak and paddled away. After many hours of travel Sedna turned and saw a black speck far off into the distance. She felt the fear well up inside of her for she knew the speck was her angry husband flying in search of her.
The big black raven swooped down upon the kayak bobbing on the ocean. Sedna’s father took his paddle and struck at the raven but missed as the bird continued to harass them. Finally the raven swooped down near the kayak and flapped his wing upon the ocean. A vicious storm began to brew. The calm arctic ocean soon became a raging torrent tossing the tiny kayak to and fro. Sedna’s father became very frightened. He grabbed Sedna and threw her over the side of the kayak into the ocean. “Here, he screamed, here is your precious wife, please do not hurt me, take her.”Sedna screamed and struggled as her body began go numb in the icy arctic waters. She swam to the kayak and reached up, her fingers grasping the side of the boat. Her father, terrified by the raging storm, thought only of himself as he grabbed the paddle and began to pound against Sedna’s fingers. Sedna screamed for her father to stop but to no avail. Her frozen fingers cracked and fell into the ocean. Affected by her ghastly husbands powers, Sedna’s fingers while sinking to the bottom, turned into seals. Sedna attempted again to swim and cling to her father’s kayak. Again he grabbed the paddle and began beating at her hands. Again Sedna’s hands, frozen by the arctic sea again cracked off. The stumps began to drift to the bottom of the sea, this time turned into the whales and other large mammals. Sedna could fight no more and began to sink herself.
Sedna, tourmented and raging with anger for what had happened to her, did not perish. She became, and still is today, the goddess of the sea. Sedna’s companions are the seals, and the whales that sit with her at the bottom on the ocean. Her anger and fury against man is what drums up the violent seas and storms . Hunters have a great respect for her. Legend has it that they must treat her with respect. Shaman’s from the world above must swim down to her to comb her long black tangled hair. This calms Sedna down. Once this is done, she releases her mammals to allow the Inuit to eat from the bounty of the sea. It is for this reason in the north that after a hunter catches a seal he drops water into the mouth of the mammal, a gesture to thank Sedna for her kindness in allowing him to feed his family.
This is the legend of Sedna.
Best wishes and many blessings,

|I am a hobbist genealogist. I have several long deceased relatives I would like to know what they were like. Have you ever done a chart on a deceased person? If I have a date and time of death, how do I use that?
My great grandfather died of swine flu in 1918. His brother died that same year in WWI. I can find military records for Uncle Glenn, but nothing for Grandpa Benjamin. I would love to know more about these two men, but have exhausted all other sources. It seems like their deaths sent the whole family into a downward spiral.
I don’t have birth times naturally, but I don’t think that will matter in this case. Can you use dates from the distant past to see how they impacted the future?
You can run a solar chart. And yes you can see how they effected the world through their charts, and of course, what sorts of things they went through based on that info. You won’t know exactly what. and when things happened without a birth time, but you can really tell a lot about their personalities; how they interacted with people, their passions, their weaknesses, most definitely. if you want to post their birth dates I can run solar charts for you, and do an analysis to show everyone how this works.
I’m working on some more posts that clarify astrological points over the next few weeks, so hopefully this will help with my astro talk and also get some of you interested in further investigation of the art/science.
For now I’m answering some readers and the first is from Wei:
I am not a conspiracy theorist, but the economic turmoil and the violent bubble and bust situations from the dot.com to the most recent real estate and credit crisis wreaks of corruption. It creates paupers and millionaries. My comment is related to a posting you made about how you forsee a different monetary system, a more universal and world market situation. I watched zeitgeist, the movies found on http://www.zeitgeistmovie.comand what I found interesting is the parallel between your comments and how the documentaries notes nefarious desire to create globalization through an universal currency and gov’t with subsequent tearing down of our civil liberties. “Terrorism” which has been happening all over the world now is touted as the new way for bankers to make money because it is a war that you can’t win so it goes on forever. Wonder if you feel there is actually some feeling that globalization is a bad thing. I, for one, find it interesting.
I’ll have to check out the link. I’ve been too busy to look at it, but I will tomorrow. You know the bible seems to think globalization is bad, but I actually don’t feel that way for a number of reasons.
Again, I haven’t seen the documentary, but I often think the knee jerk reaction to globalization is based on this ingrained fear driven into the subconscious of our country via the book of Revelations. Which by the way was prophecy about the end of the Aries age, going into the Pisces, not about this time period despite the fact people of every age have tried to wrangle the prophecies to fit their particular era. And all the fancy metaphors and predictions did come to pass at that time. Especially, if one is a Christian the talk of a Messiah saving Israel should clearly indicate the rise of Jesus, and the emancipation of the Jews from the Egyptians around that period.
I remember when I was a kid back in the late 70s (I was on occult mailing lists of course because I tried to join the Rosicrucian’s and many other such groups via the mail) getting a pamphlet put out by the Zionists saying that the beast was the computer (there was really only one big computer that was housed in like a skyscraper or something) and all bar codes had the number 666 as part of their encoding.
This computer/beast was going to control all commerce, and people were going to have to eventually wear their mark on their palm, because cards would be too dangerous, etc. People might loose them and then what would they do! Oh, yeah call 1-800-bank-blah, but they hadn’t thought up 800 numbers yet I guess or the idea of replacing cards. Their interpretation was kind of true.
Banking is computerized, but we don’t wear the mark of the beast. And maybe the prophets of old did see some weird computer thing in a vision, and were afraid of it, doesn’t mean it is the devil. Let’s not forget it was cool to stone your wife to death, sacrifice your kid if God told you to, and God forbade eating pork. So the fear mongering in the bible extends into many crazy areas.
So here are my reasons why globalization is not only not a bad thing:
1) The more we band together as a world the greater our chances for saving the earth.
2) The more we are all interlinked the more we lift each other up, helping the developing world and in turn hopefully, helping them to avoid the errors of the mistakes we’ve made along the way. They also help us. If we do things fairly, we can all benefit from the resources of all nations, and put the best of everyone and everything to work for the whole of the world.
3) Agreeing on international laws which we all have to abide by puts each separate government’s feet to the fire, such as: We violated the Geneva Convention, in my opinion the Bush administration officials (and the President himself) should stand trial for war crimes if he, and/or his people are proven to have OK’d torture. They broke the law. If we can’t do anything in our country to make our government officials accountable then we still have the hope of the world community policing us. The more we (by this I mean countries) hold each other to humanitarian standards, despite the policies of our particular isolated country’s politics, the more we advance humanitarian causes.
4) We are one planet circling around one of approximately 250 billion stars in our galaxy alone. There are billions, and billions of stars and scientists are finding it common for stars to have planets orbiting them. And I’m sure over time we will find solar systems as common as cells in a human body. The chances we are alone in the universe are impossible. The more we see ourselves as one people – one world, the more we are prepared to take the leap forward into the future, advance our sciences, our capacity to travel to other planets and be able to deal with the eventual (if we are not already dealing with it, which in my opinion we are) communication with either extra-terrestrial or extra-dimensional beings.
Of course the down side to a global economy is what we are currently seeing. If one country falls then we see the domino effect. But if we can put laws in place, and make sure anti-monopoly laws are not only put into place, but indestructible via deregulation or otherwise, then the world would thrive in ways no one could imagine possible.
However, if we allow the greedy to manipulate the world stage then it would be Soylent Green time. This is the potential threat of a truly united global economy. Luckily, people and country’s are self-interested enough to see this potential and hopefully (if these countries are not run by morons or madmen) protect their people from exploitation.
Best wishes and many blessings to all of you,
