Answering Readers…

The first question comes from Sinead. I actually have a half-written post from about a month ago that I never finished regarding this subject. I’ll have to post it later.

Hi Denise: Did you ever hear of 12/21/2012 being the end of the world or possibly earth changing? Thanks, cusious about it astrologically…

Hi Sinead,

Yes, I have heard this because it’s when the Mayan calendar runs out. People have speculated that it signals the end of the world. The Mayans broke segments of time into worlds, kind of like western astrology does via ages. However they used different language to describe this then we do. Instead of ages like the Taurus age, the Aries age, the Pisces age (which we are in the tale end of) and the coming Aquarius age, they used the term world and they paired it up with animals and animal Gods who had significance to their culture. 

The fact that their calendar ends December 21, 2012 could mean a lot of things. Perhaps they just calculated their calendars until they ran out of steam figuring they would get to what was beyond 2012 when the time came. Or they saw that as the pole has shifted backwards through the zodiac, in our recorded time from Taurus all the way through to current Pisces, with Pisces being the last sign, and perhaps for them a similar astrological configuration symbolizing the last sign, the pole then goes past the last western sign (and maybe their version of a last sign) to point toward Aquarius. Either they saw this a quandary to figure out later, or as some have stated the end of all worlds. As we are currently living in the last sign in the grand procession of ages before going past the final sign of Pisces, they may have had a system that mirrored ours and perhaps this is when (in their system) the pole shifts completely toward the next sign.

Some have speculated that the end of all worlds means a vibrational shift that would happen at this time, others Armageddon.

Also take into consideration this date falls on winter solstice, traditionally an ending of one year as the God dies and is reborn and beginning of a new year. It could be very simply that they were forecasting the end of their own culture and the demise of the world they had known, sort of like the bible has done. Of course with global warming, an economic depression and wars raging all over the globe it doesn’t seem that far off to imagine the literal interpretation to be accurate.

It’s my belief we will experience a period of purging and destruction that will be followed by a new well spring of humanity, which hopefully will be (and I believe it will be) a collective evolutionary shift toward greater enlightenment at the end of the storm.

Let’s face it, we don’t seem to learn much from love, peace, and roses. We seem to need a little butt kicking to get us straight from time to time. I wish it weren’t so, but it seems for the majority of us, we learn through loss and hard times not through appreciation of what we have. Our lower tendency is toward greed, which we don’t always even know we are exhibiting. For instance we have plenty of food, shelter, clothing, a loving family, a nice home, a good car, a wonderful job and we wish for a bigger house, more money, more power, etc. It’s not necessarily a bad thing, it pushes us to be bigger and better than we are, it’s often called ambition. But the negative side of this means we aren’t truly present in our lives appreciating all the good we have and learning from it. Some of us have the ability to do so, but most of us have a motto more akin to that old Rolling Stones song, “I can’t get no satisfaction.” Personally, I liked the Devo version better, but then I’m a dork for Devo.

I’ll re-read the post I was writing about the Mayan calendar ending and put it up in the next few days.

Perhaps you have answered this question previously. What is you sense of conspiracy theories regarding 9/11? Thanks. Sally

Hi Sally,

I think I did answer this in a previous post, but it’s fine. It’s my intuitive feeling that the Bush administration knew about what was going to happen on 9/11 and there was a conscious decision not to interfere, but rather exploit the situation to further the neo-con agenda. This was my first initial feeling the day of the event, despite some friends rushing to say that it was actually planned by the Bush administration. I did not have that feeling. Of course facts have come out which were documented in Michael Moore’s film confirming my feeling. I don not feel or believe explosive devices were already in place in the towers. The heat from the fuel, and the poor upkeep on the flame retardant material that was supposed to cover the metal skeleton of the buildings, allowed the metal to bend in on itself, causing the weight to collapse the buildings.

The fact that invading Iraq had been a neo-con objective since the last war and an excuse was needed to justify breaking the Genova convention, I believe was why the events of 9/11 were allowed to take place. Why else would there be a stand down order issued? Besides the long standing friendship with the Bin Laden family, which is why they were the only people allowed to fly besides our president who never touched ground. When we needed him most he was playing chicken in the sky.

I’m not saying there wasn’t a conspiracy of exploitation, willful ignorance, and apathy. I just don’t believe they went as far as planting the bombs and ordering the terrorism. The terrorism was inevitable if one looked the other way, and that’s what they did. In that way I do believe they were co-conspirators in waiting for the shoe to drop, so they could use it to whack their enemies.

aha …….. mercury retrograde these sort of things happen. yesterday I spilled liquid on my laptop ( first time ever and hopefully the last ) first thing I did is turned it upside down, unplugged the power cord and held the power button till it shut off. after that I took a few paper towels kept them between the screen and moniter and left the computer upside down. Turned it on today mornings and it’s working fine. keys are a bit sticky but freeing up… ………. dont ask me what I spilled on it and I do not drink milk not after I was weaned away 🙂

Hi Id,

Urggg! Mercury retrograde! It’s enough to drive a person crazy. Have you noticed people also drive erratically during Mercury Retrograde? I’ve seen more near misses and accidents during those periods then any other time. I think your right about the missing post. Hope your computer is OK.

Hi Denise, Mercury retrograde. I’ve lost calls and emails this week. I had a question about the increase in autism. Do you have any theories or any insights through readings you may have done with families of autistic children? Thanks!

Hi Hope and a Plan,

I’ve done research about autism because of my pregnancy, and of course, my now one year old daughter. It has always been my feeling that it will turn out to be environmental toxins. For awhile people were concerned about Mercury in vaccines, but that was removed about 10 years ago, and the incidents of autism have continued to soar and have actually gotten worse. The anecdotal stories of people noticing their kids (mostly boys get autism) exhibiting the signs shortly after vaccination made me spread my daughter’s shots out because I felt it wasn’t so much the vaccination as perhaps overloading a baby with too many things to try and fight off, and perhaps for babies (especially boys because of the x chromosome and the fact that this makes them biologically weaker health wise) who are already dealing with toxicity, a bunch of vaccinations that overload their immune system is enough to set the autism ball rolling. 

I know some scientists think it is genetic, but I have a feeling it will turn out to be a number of toxins, and could also be further complicated and linked to the breakdown in our immune system caused by exposure to more UVB rays then ever before.

((hugs)) I think this happens to everyone at one time or another. Pres. Obama is asking everyone to contact him with ideas at change.gov. Do you think he actually reads these emails and uses the ideas? If he does will our Congress also actually start listening to us? That will be a nice switch. Once I wrote a letter to my Congresswoman and she wrote me back that she was doing everything she could to stop people like me. I have had better luck with my Senators, but I really feel things would be different if they actually read their mail instead of their employees.

Hi Grace,

I bet he would read an e-mail if it had a great idea. I’m sure he has other people fish through them first. That’s a pretty cool thing to hear though. I wasn’t aware he’d put that out there.

Best wishes and many blessings to all of you,

Denise

Hey everyone,

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:


Hi Denise:
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. 

Hi Wei,

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,

Denise
