National Honesty Day

Today is Honest Day. Since April 1 is Fool's day, the last day of April was invented to be Honesty Day. But, honestly, (pun intended), how many people can go one day with telling the whole truth, and nothing but truth. Whether it's "Do I look fat in this dress?", to "Will I find THE ONE?", to how we engage our family and friends. And there's always the man in the mirror, as Michael Jackson's song goes. More importantly, are we really being totally honest with ourselves? How many times have we observed someone else and thought that person is just kidding him/herself. Is that person honestly facing their fears? Who knew how honesty could be a bigger thing than just a little white lie. It all goes to one's programming as they say.

So, let's just try to be as self aware as we can this Honesty Day, and beyond. Knowledge is power, and self knowledge is self empowering.

Solar Eclipse Brings Devastation

Since the day of its creation, planet Earth has always been in a state of ongoing change and upheaval. This week, in the energies of a new moon solar eclipse in Taurus - devastation hit and it's not over yet as deadly twisters storm the US. What's the most surreal thing about a tornado is that it generally comes out of the blue - as one minute someone's home is standing and the next minute it's gone.

Rubik's Cube Turns 40

Did you ever play with a Rubik's Cube? My children each had one ... so I gave it a few tries back in the day, completing the three-dimensional puzzle most of the time - or just walking away as one of my daughters finish it for me.

Time passed and a new generation was born ... Two years ago, my then 14 year old grandson, Michael, was proud to show me how he could complete the Rubik's Cube quickly - much like the man in the video below - no matter how you originally presented it to him. Twist ... twist ... turn ... turn ... several times rapidly and Michael was done as if in a contest with friends. As I sat there in awe, once again this affirmed to me that the brains of today's children are programmed differently than those of older generations. This relates to the careers and challenges they would experience as they became adults ... or Michael is just a genius with his 4.0+ average today as a sophomore in high school and the star athlete (proud grandma moment).

First Solar Eclipse Of 2014 Will Transform Sun Into 'Ring Of Fire'   Huffington Post - April 27, 2014

The Pacific Ring of Fire certainly has been active with accelerating earthquake activity over the past two months. Many will question whether something "Earth shattering" will happen in these eclipse energies. I just see more of the same - not "The Big One" most scientists and intuitives are projecting.

Taurus - Astrology, Astronomy, Mythology

Speaking of earthquakes ...


Sunday, I watched an H2 special called "Inside the Volcano" posted below. I was especially interested in Santorini due to ongoing earthquake activity in that region in recent years. Will Santorini, classically the volcano Thera, erupt again in our timeline? Plato linked Thera to Atlantis. Many people have projected the rise of Atlantis at the end of the hologram.

Santorini is an island in the southern Aegean Sea, about 200 km (120 mi) southeast of Greece's mainland. It is the largest island of a small, circular archipelago which bears the same name and is the remnant of a volcanic caldera. The island is the site of one of the largest volcanic eruptions in recorded history: the Minoan eruption (sometimes called the Thera eruption), which occurred some 3600 years ago at the height of the Minoan civilization. Unlike other ancient civilizations that flourished in that timeline, the Minoans were a peaceful seafaring people with a highly advanced culture ... until Thera erupted 3600 years ago. Their history would take us to the ancient Greece program.

Predictions That Read Like A Quatrain

Imagine the power of the Roman Catholic Church and the Papacy in the timeline of Nostradamus (16th century Europe) - who frequently mentions them in his Quatrains. They were part of his programming, though he was able to peer into the grids and see events in other timelines that would intrigue people for centuries to come. I've never given too much credence to the quatrains as they are vague and cryptic - open to personal interpretations - yet somehow I am connected to Nostradamus through Z.

Today, a Crystalinks' reader named Joseph sent me to this file - Quatrains of Nostradamus - Interpretations where I had posted various interpretations of the quatrains - years ago. I don't remember the source of the quotes below, but they certainly are timely. They may have come from this website Prophecy in the Making or they quoted my text, author unknown. When something happens in the world, especially linked to war, many people return to the Quatrains for answers. I couldn't find reference to this in the quatrains, therefore I decided to remove the text, but post it here for your review. Obviously I saw a grain of truth in some of these predictions, which is why I originally posted them. Somebody out there really honed into events of this timeline.

Near-Death Experiences of the Blind; How Does That Work?   Mysterious Universe - April 25, 2014
Dr. Kenneth Ring, Emeritus professor of Psychology at the University of Connecticut, one of the world's leading Near-Death researchers, has chronicled, through his research, the Near-Death-Experiences of several blind subjects. According to Dr. Ring, Vicki's experience is typical of blind NDE'ers, which seems to suggest that NDE's are something far more complicated than dreams or simple hallucinations. Not only did Vicki, and presumably others, experience sight for the first time during her NDE, but that experience was carried back into her consciousness once she was revived, giving her the only visual memory she ever had.

Human Papilloma Virus (HPV)

An endless number of clients have come here after their Pap Test has shown they have human papilloma virus. It is an STD - that seems to be transmitted - more often than not - during the college years then remains dormant through the decades. Frightened young women want to know if they're going to die of cancer or if they can have children after part of their cervix is removed. Each situation is unique but one can go many years as a carrier transmitting the disease to other partners - often unaware. Some consider this part of the long list of autoimmune diseases that one can trigger when they are programmed to.

Alternative to Pap Test Is Approved by F.D.A.   New York Times - April 25, 2014

The Food and Drug Administration on Thursday approved the first alternative to the long-used Pap test as a primary screening method for cervical cancer, in the face of opposition from some women's groups and health organizations. The new test, developed by Roche, detects the DNA of the human papilloma virus, which causes almost all cases of cervical cancer, in a sample taken from the cervix. Pap testing involves examining the cervical sample under a microscope to detect abnormalities.

Are you taking your child to work today? This year, my oldest daughter Tracy will be with her daughter because Tracy teaches in Joie's elementary school. My other grandchildren are busy at school and cannot take time off. A few years ago, my daughter Nikki, who works for the Food Network, took her son Matthew to the studio where they film the TV show. Now that's an experience! In the virtual world in which we exist, most children are familiar with their parent's workplace, though a special day is always fun.

Ring of Fire Earthquakes March-April 2014

Glass rattled, buildings swayed, but no damage was reported after a magnitude 6.6 earthquake hit off the northern coast of Vancouver Island on Wednesday night. Two aftershocks were reported in the hour following the quake.

Cardinal Grand Cross

The Cardinal Grand Cross energies are here.

    Pluto - dealing with what lies under the surface whether you like it or not

    Uranus - sudden and unexpected behavior and changes

    Mars - action taken

    Jupiter - expansion and growth after you've cleared away the cobwebs

All I see everywhere are people who are totally losing it. They walk down the street as if confused and lost. I've heard about three suicides in the past two days. I've also heard about more cases of cancer in young people. Emotional pressures seem to be mounting especially for those with unresolved issues as if an acupuncture needle has touched a nerve. It's definitely a case of burn-out as the program comes into the final stretch. Reality is shifting so quickly it's hard for most people to stay focused. Last night, I watched as a man in my building was taken away by the police after his wife issued an order of protection against him ... then came back to harass her.

Am I the only person on the planet who didn't know Sunday was 420 or weed day ... which happens to coincide with Hitler's birthday? Okay ... I put it on my e-zine calendar for 2015 should we still be here.

Life appears to be a Powder keg ... which is the name of an urban writers' retreat in ... of all places ... Brooklyn. As people's lives seek new direction and definition, the move is always to something creative. People are forever writing their story which in essence is the code for what they came here to experience. Speaking of writers ...

William Shakespeare

  William Shakespeare Google Videos

William Shakespeare was an English poet and playwright, widely regarded as the greatest writer in the English language and the world's pre-eminent dramatist. He is often called England's national poet and the "Bard of Avon", or simply "The Bard". His surviving works consist of 38 plays, 154 sonnets, two long narrative poems, and several other poems. His plays have been translated into every major living language, and are performed more often than those of any other playwright.

All the world's a stage, and all the men and women merely players.
They have their exits and entrances;
and one man in his time plays many parts, his acts being seven ages.

Cardinal Grand Cross

Wednesday April 23, 2014, the planets align to form a Cardinal Grand Cross - the most powerful planetary pattern of the year. Each of these planets is in a "pushy" Cardinal sign that can create chaos born from the need to make change happen. The affects will be life-changing and long-lasting.

Pluto's overwhelming energies can hit you like a ton of bricks. It's about transformation, regeneration and rebirth - out with the old and in with the new. Pluto - like the Hindu Goddess Kali - must destroy to re-create. Kali means "the black one" and represents "time" and "beyond time". Pluto asks you to transcend that which you believe and come out stronger as a result. This planet rules destruction, death, obsession, kidnapping, coercion, viruses, waste, crime, the underworld, along with many forms of subversive activity such as terrorism. It is about secrets and covert activities - that which is hidden from view - and forces you to reveal the truth. Pluto's energies are often focused on the masses and what the collective must do. Scary or not - Pluto's purpose is to bring truth, sometimes with collateral damage. Things are complicated with Pluto, but they get done.

April 2014 is the month of the long-anticipated Cardinal Grand Cross - the aspect pattern that's exact on April 23 forming for many decades, a hologram swirling in the seemingly random movements of the cosmos awaiting its moment of emergence. That is about to arrive with both deeply personal themes and vast global ones. They share a common thread, and that is trust. Read more ...

Since mid-February, Jupiter, Uranus and Pluto have moved even closer together. Like three people crowded into a cramped elevator or space, the closer they get, the more we feel their friction. The gift of squares is that they force us to deal. Whatever's been stuffed down or ignored will come up, and if you courageously confront it, your life could transform forever. You could think of it as an astrological juice cleanse. The detoxing part is no fun, but when it's over, you're glowing, light and free. The Grand Cross: A 4-Way Showdown

It is always held on Patriots' Day, the third Monday of April.

  Tight security for Boston Marathon a year after bombings  
BBC - April 21, 2014

Do you remember where you were one year ago? Emotions are going to run very high in and around the Boston area today and other parts of the world connected to terrorism.

Emotions and Astrological Aspects

April 15th's lunar eclipse stirred the souls of many, bringing to the fore buried emotions that need to be addressed. Wednesday, we find the Cardinal Grand Cross. That too will stir emotions that camouflage the truth - culminating on the new moon solar eclipse next week. Those with emotional problems and substance abuse issues will be enlightened.

Today, April 21, 2014, marks the fifth exact Uranus-Pluto square in a series of seven stressful squares taking place from 2012-2015. This Grand Cross is the most powerful planetary pattern of the year. Each of these planets is in a pushy, Cardinal (season-starting) sign, too, so what we end up with is a Cardinal Grand Cross that can create chaos born from the need to make change happen RIGHT NOW! You'll feel this energy from April 20-23, 2014, but the affects will be life-changing and long-lasting.

Pluto's energy may be subtle, but its results will hit you like a ton of bricks. This planet is about transformation, regeneration and rebirth. Things aren't pretty with Pluto, but they do get done. Pluto says 'out with the old and in with the new,' and you'd better be ready for it. Pluto asks us to transcend that which we know, redeem ourselves in the process, and come out stronger as a result. For all that Pluto (re)creates (it also governs the reproductive system), it loves to destroy. This planet rules destruction, death, obsession, kidnapping, coercion, viruses and waste. That's definitely not pretty. Pluto also governs crime and the underworld, along with many forms of subversive activity (terrorism, dictatorships). This planet is about all that is secret and undercover, that which is hidden from view. Is this the story of good vs. evil? Yes. No one will deny Pluto's power (it rules atomic power, too) and intensity. This planet's energy is often focused on the masses and what the collective will do. Pluto beseeches the masses to look inward (and to their subconscious) to see what's there. It may be scary, but Pluto doesn't care. This planet knows how to push buttons ... so do I.
