The Scorpio 11.11 New Moon & The Global Village


some light years ago when this elder astrologer was in his twenties at York University enjoying the weekly seminars with a wild Irish cultural historian named William Irwin Thompson ( who mused about culture heroes at the border crossing between ages like Moses & Quetzalcoatl) I would drift over to U of T on Wednesdays to catch a class with Marshall McLuhan on James Joyce the Global Village... One of his pet & brilliant ideas was that Gutenberg printing press changed culture so that much that was esoteric became exoteric. And that every media created by human beings was an externalization of the human nervous system. He looked to see which medias were hot, which were cold & which ones dramatically altered the human nervous system. Television, according to MM
mangaged to break up the tradition of family dinners with post dinner music & fractured the human attention span down to 14 1/4 minutes the time between commercials. Next came channel surfing
as an attention span interrupter. I fancy that MM may be available pour moi along with Kryon and a few imaginary friends that I choose as humour filled guides & pundants..; So as I muse about the new
smart phone ear plugged urban human with an fractured attention span that falls between the cracks of each nano-second I hear the wisdom of another mentor of mine R.Murray Schafer (The Soundscape aka The Tuning of the World) reminding me of how jazz was born from the urban musician attempting to deal with the sound of car horns!

I have a friend who feels that the computer & Google is shinking down the Global Village to a pindrop & creating a new civilization of Netizens,,,, Yes.. on one level...on another it may likely be hijacked by the moghuls of big advertising & Zootube & Facebook may well further desensitize youthful generations into cyber friend pods of shared interests.... ( who may be in shock rather than delight upon finally physically meeting),,,  For an elder who loves children & is now turning to writing wry books for them ( if you would like a first draft of my new offering Star Buddha or know of a brilliant illustrator just e mail me at the idea of interacting via a computer or a cell phone lacks the human warmth of a hug & a bedtime story....

So what does all this do with astrological transits you may ask...Each new moon plants seeds into out collective cultural web and the most recent one at 19 degrees Scorpio 229th degree of the Zodiac
speaks of the space between the electron haze & the nucleus not being empty. Perhaps it is now filled by a sea of gamma rays raising the vibration of our dimensional perception. A scientest named Simon Atkins thinks so,,, Saturn is slowly moving through zodiacal Sagittarius which will likely make air travel more challenging ( that Russian plane that exploded over the Sinai may have been blown up by a planted bomb in the cargo placed by fundementalist Islamic nutcase who was offered a Sinai cybercave by a man named Morsi whom Obamaimagined might give Gaza a new piece of real estate...
but that is another story!)
Saturn will no doubt make webinar education across political borders much more available...
Meanwhile Neptune &  Chiron are still trolling through Pisces offering emotional healing to those who resonate with the water signs...
Uranus is still creating new sources of free energy in Aries but in an awkward & challenging quincunx aspect to the recent New Moon,,, We hear good news about a man who is travelling about offering free energy devices to assorted governnments & here in Canada my generation is ecstatic to see one Justin Trudeau as PM & pray that his dad Pierre Elliot Trudeau is whispering in his ear & suggesting that he dismantle the whole oil & tar sands sink hole & eco nightmare nurtured by former pm Harper.. This astrologer worked for PET in the sixties during Trudeau mania when it was honourable to have a Canadian flag on one's backpack..... Pierrre Elliott Trudeau was visionary enough to keep big oil companies from cracking up the arctic ice & killing whales & their eco-system!

Last but not least in the planetary picture we have Pluto at the 14th degree of Capricorn for the next few weeks. So I will close this run on blog cum rant with my poem for the 284th degree of the Zodiac from Aleph 2160: A Zodiacle available via e book at
and invite you to come with me for a magical week around the time of Rumi's wedding day celebration in Sedona AZ Dec.17

Here is that Plutonian micro poem:

all the earth quakes  high tides   washing over
earth island    mountain ranges   re-arranging themselves
Atlantis & Lemuria   re-emerging    all samurai
rendez-vous    one day  with tsunami
in this purification time    even      kadeeshay elyoneem
will be tried    in the cosmic fire......

The Virgo New Moon Rosh HaShannah 5776

I am scribing this post a few hours before the Virgo New Moon at 21 degrees of Virgo... one day before the commencement of Rosh HaShannah 5776. So before donning my astro-hat let me wish you a year filled with sweetness, light, joy & delightful surprises.. The internet is abuzz these days
with ominous talk about the upcoming Shemittah Year, the so-called  blood-moon in a fortnight & the imminent Gamma Ray Photon Wave that is reported to be a "game-changer" for life on Gaia or Adamah. Some folks envision dramatic earth changes {tectonic plate shifting & resultant volcanic activity... not to mention financial turmoil  & the resultant exposure of small c cabals & their creators}... while a growing number of "channels" are anticipating a tsunami of spiritual infusions that could propel sensitive souls all the way to the 5th Dimension or Beyond! The pundits & the cyberspace prophets are offering predictions & potentials that range from an eruption of Yellowstone,
currency colony collapse & concomitant chaos to the arrival of benevolent ETs & the seeding of the New Earth Frequencies! Not to mention a messianic initiative in the upcoming Shemittah Year....

So what does your Libran astrologer say about all of this... OK.. first it is time to throw out the trite images of those so-capped sabian symbols that a generation of young newbie astro acolytes tend to rely upon for their video blogs!
The 171st degree of the Zodiac yields the word Pnayel via Hebrew Gematria. The word translates as
"the face of God or the Divine Presence" The biblical Ya akov aka Jacob wrestled for a night with an angel named Pnayel sciatica from the wrestling but had his Pineal gland opened to an awareness of Cosmic Consciousness... So perhaps the year to come will offer something like that to us collectively! May we be inscribed in the Book of Life for a Year of Clearing of Karmic Impediments & Attainment of True Self-Realization! And may the prophet Eliyahu show up to clear the planet of 
assorted mischief & malfeance as well as corporate ecological agendas!  

Shana Tovah 5776 

and yes before the Sun enters Scorpio.. those who book a Kabbalistic Astrology session will receive the new Crop Circle Oracle Cards Ebook  plus this authors new offering for Star Kids & their astronished parents entitled  Star Buddha... just check out the e book section at

New Moon on Bloomsday & Beyond

June 17 2015

The recent new moon on June 16th at 25 degrees of Gemini was exactly conjunct Mars which adds some
gusto, bravado & ballast to the sphere of personal & even transpersonal communications this month.
I have recently channeled a book for Starkids & their hip but somewhat perplexed parents so I will be
taking this week leading up to the Summer Solstice on June 21st as a late spring seeding time for work that may not emerge from the creative wormhole ( so to speak) till the autumn. It is the Summer Solstice astrochart that is the significant one to source for hints for those who ask "what's happening Mahn?" Well the good news is the coming conjunction of Jupiter & Venus on June 30th at the 21st degree of Leo.. This feels like a big family celebration of some sort, a theatrical event, a financial windfall, a marriage ceremonial. Upon consulting Aleph 2160:A Zodiac Oracle ( finally available as an e-book, just click on that new e-book link) I gather that "the elders are calling a gathering together circle to meet "the messengers" & the voice of the Ancestors is whistling in our ears". This could be an intermittent phenomena happening all summer long!
(You can have a listen to the Leo sector audio version of A2160 by clicking the link at
my friend David Hickey was playing singing bowls & an occasional gong for this recorded version btw)
The particular gathering together circle that I am most looking forward to this summer is the summer lectures conference hosted by Steve & Karen Alexander in Devizes, Britain on the weekend of August 1 &2. This is their 10th anniversary conference & those who have been initiated via a crop circle experience will be there at this family gathering... And the elders will be " whistling in our ears " to be sure! I invite you to join me on this journey to Albion that includes a Roundtable astrology seminar in Glastonbury,   Steve & Karen's wonderful conference in Devizes & some sacred site earth grid exploring at Avebury, Marleborough & Tintagel. You will find the flyer for it at the "CropCircleOracleCards" button on
where you can also order decks for your star buddies!

May this summer bring us palpably closer to what my dear departed friend Roweena Kryder called the new earth.!!!

with blessings, joseph-mark

From New Moon conjunct Andromeda to the Wesak full moon....

The recent New Moon at 28degrees of Aries was close to conjunct the zodiacal position of our neighbouring sister constellation Andromeda...

Many years ago I met a man who had been contacted by one of those beautiful blue shapeshifting creatures who had inspired him to compose some haunting & transporting music! So with the lens of harmonic astrology I sent a posting out to 40 fellow astrologers about the hidden 7th harmonic aspects nested in the New Moon chart. The Sun/Moon was bi-septile Jupiter & septile Neptune. Pluto was bi-septile the Sun/Moon as well. Venus & Neptune were squaring one another in mutable signs (Gemini &Pisces) which is a good aspect for musical creativity. This astrologer had the good fortune to study harmonics with both John Addey & Charles Harvey some light years ago & they proved to me that the 7th harmonic has to do with both mystical & musical enlightenment.  Now coming up in a few days, May 3rd to be precise, we have the full moon at 14 degrees of Scorpio, for the celebration of Wesak, a mythic marriage of the overtone harmonics of heart & mind... Here is the zodiacal degree poem for the full moon position from my Aleph 2160 A Zodiacal Oracle:  

in the beginning  is the wind  vibrating 

within the breath    all things   begin to dance 
within the dance    each form    emits a tone
each sonic signal    emanating    harmonics     
each one a microtron  dipped      in the well of Hhanohh 
each tone  begins to spin    in the beginning    is the Wind  

Well that wind is ruahh breath spirit in Hebrew & Hhanonhh is known as Enoch the one who became Mettatron & ascended after a full 360 year incarnation... (lots of new age channels out there claiming to channel METTATRON these days!)
So for the upcoming full Wesak moon , best to breath  from your Buddha belly & listen up for the big spiritual  windstorm that is about to blow our way! Could be a gathering of eagles about to land!  JMC's promo this month: have a look at the invite to Gozo (May 17-25th) & send an e-mail to

New Moon at the Border Crossing

The Feb.17 New Moon straddles the border between Aquarius & Pisces. This is the border between invention & imagination, technology & magic, envisioning & romaticising. There is a fair bit of Nasrudin contraband attempting to smuggle or snuggle its way through this border crossing this month as the Sun enters Pisces! New Agers are looking for the keys to the GATE ( Great Ascension Transporter Energy) will old agers just want to know where they put the car keys. It all depends upon the frequency one is vibrating at & the hold that past-life or former star system karma has upon us! Each of the planets has an influence & a dance partner in this month's upcoming theatre project or hidden carnival. Mercury has gone direct so what was lost can now be found. Venus enters Aries on Feb. 21st to add some adventure & gambling to the mix.Mars enters Aries on Feb.20th so these two lovers will be doing an intense tango for about a week. Jupiter is retrograde in Leo at the potent 15th degree that points to assorted political machinations. Saturn is trolling through the 5th degree of Sagittarius in a grand trine to Mars&Venus so you may be bitten by the travel bug this month.The Sun conjuncts Neptune on Feb.26th which is a fabulous day for lucid dreaming, scuba diving, film-making or soul-memory healing....Last but not least Pluto is at the 15th degree of Capricorn pulling the rug out from under our current planetary electrical magnetic grid. Here is what the Aleph 2160 Zodiac Oracle has to say about this degree:

at the sunset of an aeon
when the compass wavers
& floats
remember Vega
the Spinning Maiden
arranging the steps of RA
you can call it heads or tails
When the Awakener meets the Dissolver
will the poles

So what pray tell does that mean, JMC? Well we are diving into deep karmic waters & at the threshold of a major Planetary Initiation. About the time that the Sun conjuncts Uranus on April. 6th we will all feel it !!! ( Sun conjunct Uranus, square Pluto, trine Jupiter, the 3rd day of Passover, day after Easter, with the moon in karma lord ruled Scorpio Quincunx the Sun/Uranus conjunction) If you would like to join my annual Passover/ Easter Retreat , likely in Sedona this year just e-mail me personally at will be a potent & transformational time! And be sure to have a look at the upcoming Shamanic Kabbalah week on Gozo at the heart of the Mediterranean Goddess May 17-24th. Many blessings, great love & safe travels,,,, Joseph-Mark
