NorthPoint Journal

Highlighted Aspects this Week
TUE: Sun quincunx Jupiter, Mercury quincunx Jupiter, Sun conjunct Mercury, Venus opposite Pluto
WED: Mercury semisquare Uranus, Mercury square Neptune, Sun semisquare Uranus, Sun square Neptune
THU: Mars conjunct South Node
FRI: Uranus trine Vesta, Mercury quincunx Pluto, Venus square Eris
SAT: Mercury sextile Ceres
SUN: Pluto square Juno
THE SUN AND MERCURY travel side by side in Gemini as we begin the week. With these two planets joining forces, our thought processes are exceptionally active and our need to speak our minds is strong. This can be useful in situations where brainstorming is needed, since Gemini is well known for its ability to ask questions and for its communication skills. We can also use this week for learning new concepts, or for teaching what we know.
When the Sun and Mercury exactly conjoin on Tuesday, they are in alignment with the fixed star Cursa, activating our creativity and helping us access higher ideas and solutions. As astrologer Roderick Kidston writes:
“Under Cursa, you have access to a fund of help from the universe. It is partly about consenting to go with the flow, rather than trying to force the direction of the River — the River of Life will find its own way with you, and for you. Sometimes it helps to become still, and go within, and see what presents or suggests itself.”
AS ALWAYS, there are a few rough patches in this week’s road to illumination. The Sun and Mercury are in quincunx aspect to Jupiter on Tuesday. This minor aspect represents the potential for information overload, and the likelihood that people will exaggerate the positives or negatives of any situation. It will also be hard to rein in our judgmental tendencies and moral justifications.
A Venus-Pluto opposition adds to the finger-pointing game on Tuesday. Resentment and defensiveness may be our first reaction when dealing with those whose frame of reference is different than ours. Our task is to be willing to explore our own motivations rather than blaming others for their choices.
OUR MINDS are on overdrive on Wednesday when the Sun and Mercury interact with both Uranus and Neptune. We are feeling the tension between the old ways and the new, and may be questioning recent decisions as we struggle with the shift in perspective that the new road requires.
We are being challenged to move beyond previous perceptions of reality. For most of us, it is not comfortable to break away from long-held mindsets, and so it is natural to wonder if we’re making the right choices.
But in these transitional times, each of us is required to release old conceptual frameworks and open our minds to new options. This is as much a soul-driven exercise in consciousness expansion as it is an opportunity to make essential changes that will help resolve current problems.
MARS exactly aligns with the karmic South Node on Thursday, but this influence is in effect throughout the week. The key in working with this alignment is self-awareness, paying close attention to what irritates and angers us and questioning why we respond as we do.
The South Node represents behavior patterns that can hold us back, interfering with our growth and evolutionary development. With the South Node and Mars in Aquarius, there can be a tendency to withdraw when we become angry, when the best solution may be found through having the courage to become more involved, seeking creative solutions that are both inspiring and empowering (North Node in Leo).
The Café Astrology website describes this choice point well in their description of the North Node in Leo:
“We need to avoid falling into the easy trap of worrying about what others think about us. Instead, we need to strike out in our own individual and creative path without fear. We need to make a conscious effort to deal with others in a more personal, involved, and loving manner, rather than falling back on reason and intellect which detaches us from our feelings.”
BY THE END OF THE WEEK, Mercury has moved ahead of the Sun, and is traveling alone when the Messenger Planet forms a quincunx aspect with Pluto on Friday.
Any aspect involving Pluto can bring forward unconscious patterns that seem to be outside of our control. With a Mercury-Pluto quincunx in effect, we’ll want to be aware of compulsive behaviors and patterns of speech — those visceral reactions that later we look back at and say, “I can’t believe I said (or did) that.” Or, we may raise our voices out of proportion to the situation in an effort to make our point.
If this occurs, we can use the experience to gain insights into the workings of our own psyche. With the awareness gained from this introspection, we can learn to communicate in more empowered ways, rather than being letting fears of not being heard dictate the quality of our responses.
MERCURY has a more relaxed day on Saturday, thanks to a helpful sextile aspect with dwarf planet Ceres. This is a subtle influence, but it should help increase intellectual and emotional rapport, resulting in a better ability to communicate empathetically.
We’ll want to take advantage of this influence, and use it to reconnect with loved ones and allies, since we may be tiptoeing our way through relationship issues in the last half of the week. A Venus-Eris square on Friday and a Pluto-Juno square on Sunday both make us aware of how an imbalance of power affects the health of any partnership.
IF YOUR BIRTHDAY IS THIS WEEK: Your skills of communication are central to your success this year. It will be very important to be clear in your thinking before you share your ideas, since it may otherwise be difficult to convey your intended meaning. Also be aware of a tendency to share too much information. Tap into your knowing of what the other person is ready to receive, and offer your gift of information in small, manageable bites instead of expecting the other to be able to digest an entire meal all at once. Remember that listening is half of the communication process. And, when another person feels truly heard, they are more able also to receive what you want to share.
In light,

Clarity in Release

Clarity in Release

Well, it’s Groundhog day, why not repeat a bit? This is my progression of emotion that swept over me tonight.

It’s been a long week for the community of people who follow Cobra’s blog. Awakening change has never been without challenge, but this week has been geopolitically polarizing, and energetically intense, despite Divine Support and progress made. It’s a good time to get out in nature if you can (It’s rather cold here, and I got stuck on the phone all afternoon, and have been working on the warmer days).  It’s a really good time for self-care practices and counting our blessings.  Shifting a paradigm does not come without growing pains, but this, too, shall pass. 😔  ~PB

the above was an intro to this:

Inexplicable crying jags tonight…😓
Some of it angst, some of it release,and some of it joy and connection.
Tomorrow I will be laughing at my self for this…but for now,
I am just going with the flow~ 💧🌧️☔💧


A fb friend I really didn’t know too well sent a video of a young singer in a direct message. Her voice was incredible, so I thanked my friend, and this became an opening to know her better, where she confided that that I am “kind of a star here in Oklahoma”, where she lives.  Unbeknownst to me, she and her boyfriend enjoy my posts, read them daily and draw inspiration as they help young, confused, lost teens and kids who can’t relate to the strict Bible belt mentality they are immersed in. She says they are reaching kids more and more. I was truly floored. It brought tears to my eyes to learn that sharing the things that resonate with me, and my thoughts, really is helping many other people.

I had no idea I made a difference in anyone’s life, beyond my massage clients. I always do my best to understand, discover and treat the client to the best of my ability. I know sometimes with a new client, I really have no idea if I am helping them until they get off the table, transformed for the better. Even if they are not, I take solace in knowing I have done my best, with an open heart.

Considering the ultra-sensitive day I had, and spending the entire afternoon on the phone, sorting out my new health insurance enrollment, it was humbling to hear that my efforts are not in vain. In the process, I was lamenting the loss of my respected doctors/hospital affiliation that I’ve had for over a decade. But then of course, I had to count my blessings for the roof over my head, food to eat, and access to medical care if needed.  The doctor assigned as my new PCP is a woman, and in walking distance from home, so that’s a plus. While I was on the phone today, I missed a text from a client who wanted to come in. I would have been that much closer to making rent, so that was disappointing, but it turned out I really needed the whole afternoon into the evening, and a number of calls, to get things sorted out.

I am wondering if anyone else is feeling ultra-sensitive on this Friday night? Often I feel energy shifts and Full Moons early, so it could be coming for you. But this crying I had also seemed like I was dropping density, surrendering to things beyond my control, and making my peace with my circumstance, which, after all, I created.  I have not been allowing myself the rest I need, nor the time in nature I crave.  After some stretching and sleep, I should have the energy and fortitude to persevere, and continue my efforts to make positive changes for myself.

Oh, yeah, I read #TheMemo,  but it was not as scandalous as we had hoped for!


Still, it is great to be alive during this time of #TheGreatAwakening, to usher in that paradigm shift and witness Victory of the Light!

THE ORACLE REPORT: Monday, October 30, 2017
1st Quarter Moon Phase: challenge, growth, expansion

Moon in Pisces

Emissary of the Aeon Sophia (Wisdom): (?)

Emissary of the Aeon Thelete (Will): Elias, God of the West

Sabian Symbols for the Solar-Lunar Days:


  • SUN: 6 Scorpio – “A Gold Rush tears men away from their native soil”
  • EARTH: 6 Taurus – “A bridge being built across a high narrow gorge”


  • SUN: 7 Scorpio – “Deep sea diver with special machinery”
  • EARTH: 7 Taurus – “The woman of Samaria comes down to draw water from Jacob’s well”


  • SUN: 8 Scorpio – “A silvery moon shining across a clear beautiful gem of a lake”
  • EARTH: 8 Taurus – “A Sleigh without snow”

Sabian Symbol for the Solar-Lunar Year:
“a woman’s hat with streamers blown by the east wind” (attune; align)

Interpretation From Andrew:

For the Sun – “A silvery moon shining across a clear beautiful gem of a lake ”
– What do you see reflected in the world around us? And are you seeing the real thing, or just the reflection? The thought of this symbol reminds me of Kheled-zâram from Lord of the Rings. Ignoring the meaning behind the imagery, I see the beauty my minds’ eye created back from the first time I read about the Frodo looking out over Mirrormere. I love the image for many reasons, not the least of them being what could possibly lie beneath this crystal and serene scene. For the image, we sit in the stillness of the scene. Frozen and waiting. And while you are waiting, watch for signs.

For the Earth – “A Sleigh without snow.”
– All dressed up but nowhere to go. I remember one year we decided in January to plan a ski trip to the Mountains above Los Angeles. We got packed up and drove up to Big Bear to one of the ski resorts. Maybe we should have checked the weather, as the commercials we had heard proved wrong and there was no snow to be had. Planning ahead can be a good thing. And while planning ahead is a good thing, you must be ready if conditions change. I consider that each year I look at snow blowers in November. Will I have to remove the sales tags this year?

Gillian MacBeth-Louthan: This Year of Time Asks To Get Down To The Business

This Year of Time Asks To Get Down To The Business

In the expansion of time, there is a contraction of time. In moving forward there is a simultaneous moving backward. At this particular time portal of 2016 getting to the destination of the future can only be accessed through doorways from the past.  All time runs hand in hand.  Moving forward is the same as moving backward, and moving backward is the same as moving forward.

In the time of the September eclipses, there will be a sequence of geometric encodings that etch themselves across the sky exchanging a common denominator with Earth. This is galactic movement and time moves in an unsure direction for each of us.  Sometimes backward movement is needed in order to re-calibrate the future.

As with the faux eclipse of August 18, theses energies will run hand in hand, parallel like an I Ching coin throw. At the time of the September eclipses, you will gain momentum in a shaded `time area. This time shade that you enter will keep you safe as the cogs of time are momentarily oiled. Time is pliable, moldable, stretchable, and contract-able.  Each person creates Time according to their personal wants and needs. You sculpt time it in accordance with your energetic requirements.

You are now becoming Masters of Time.  The energy your world is created upon is holographic of nature, which means it is imaginary and can be manipulated.  Your imagination and thoughts can sculpt the outcome of your life.  Each of you is working with a different grade of rock and sculpting tool. As these Time doors are momentarily stopped previously sealed secrets of earth will be revealed, and uncovered.

Times has shifted and quickens its pace.  Longitudes and latitudes dance to a new beat. Leylines and time markers are off line, sacred geometries are reset. An actual cog in time will be  been felt as the worlds awaken.

We still biologically walk to the beat of the old drum but the band plays on, in a different octave of time. Our perceptions are enhanced and we see in and out of time but are still not sure where to place each thought. Seeing between the worlds is not a place for those weak of purpose. One must hold tightly to the tight wire as time doors are opened and possibilities present themselves in a new array of colors. The unexpected is to be expected on a daily basis. People do there best to hide what ails them but actions are louder than any words.

This year of time asks one to get down to the business of picking up the shattered glass and like Alice, going into all fractures of self.  The Mayans were the first to use mirrors as a portal of transport to places that could not be seen with the naked eye. The place of mirrors comes to reflect what needs to be seen as one crosses the timelines of the multi-verse and unties the string theory.

That which has been emptied now becomes full. Freeing itself from definition there is nothing to do there is nothing to let go of, you are simply free to explore all that you are. A shift of realm awakens from a long sleep to escort you into the nexus cornerstone where time and space meet and embrace you. All limitations are transformed in this expanded version of reality.
