The Future is Now, and the World Will Never be the Same

Uranus in Aries

It’s time!  The long-awaited transition of Uranus from the Fire sign, Aries into the Earth sign, Taurus.  You’ve heard it in the non-celebratory sounds of the raised voices of those pro and con for change.  It’s everywhere. It’s Uranus’ prelude alerting the world and her inhabitants that change has crossed the threshold of time.

On Wednesday, May 15th, 2018, Uranus the awakener, the transformer, the rebelliously rude child of the Zodiac, brushes off his battle garb and greets the friend he hasn’t seen in 84 years, the earthiest of all the earth signs, Taurus.  Not unlike Aries, a departing friend, Taurus believes in the power of action, but he believes this action should be methodical, practical and for the good of all.  Uranus will impatiently stand by while the Suns exchange places.  Aries is the activist and feels he has done his job igniting the powers of the world and solemnly bestows upon Taurus, the mantle of responsibility. The jig-saw pieces of the world puzzle have been identified. Now, the catalyst for puzzle-solving takes his directorial place at the head of the puzzle table.  Well, well, no surprise here.  It’s Uranus, aka Father Sky, son of Mother Earth, Gaia.

Uranus lets it be known that his mother is not too happy with her home being littered with recyclable puzzle pieces and the sooner we get things back in order the happier she will be.  But, first Uranus will show his mother what she has taught him about tearing down the old to bring in a fresh and new environment.  His seismic activity for which he is well known will be demonstrated in Earth’s response to our neglect and apathy by using her elemental forces to clear debris.  Weather changes, volcanic eruptions, hurricanes, tornadoes: all her forces will be activated.  Taurus knows from this we must bring order and well-being, but any devastation will be costly. Taurus is in charge of gold, currency, stocks, bonds and the economy.  He knows what to do.

And this is why Taurus helpfully and hopefully accepted the assignment to be a puzzle solver.  Taurus understands his ruler, Venus the overseer of love, beauty and money will assist him. He is happy having his close friend the power wielding Capricorn nearby.  Capricorn feels comfortable at the table because his host, the planet of government, Saturn sits nearby.  Watch out, there are more players trying to get in on this puzzle of life.

Jupiter wants to sit in and optimistically looks at the disarray of the world’s puzzle and asks his friend and ally Scorpio how he’s supposed to give the occupants enough room for expansion if they can’t see what’s happening to Gaia.  Oh, they know. Scorpio takes ownership of the secrets, but not this time. Let everyone see what has been done to our world.  Oh dear, up to the table flows Neptune and his watery companion, Pisces.  Pisces says it will be all right. Neptune instructs Pisces to take off his rose-colored glasses and tells the sweet, loving fish that we all need the Sky Father here. We all need to understand: change is what we all need to right the wrongs done to man and earth.

Doesn’t Uranus love the adoration!  He’ll change everything.  In order to get the puzzle pieces securely interlocked we will have to look at each individual piece recognizing it is imprinted with properties of life’s well-being for all the people in our world. He begins to give his friends their lists of priorities. Here we go.  Uranus is a strong leader and wants the energy to follow his suit.  We can expect so many changes from currency to relinquishing the control others have over us. To do this Uranus will take us through a series of rebellions and revolutions.  Emotions are going to be on the rise.

Each of the puzzle solvers has something to say now.  Looking at his or her list we see the reason it is going to take seven years to complete the assignment. The list includes Taurus’ aptitude with money, teaching us that we have stewardship of our assets and our money, we must understand the gradual relinquishment of the current form of currency has started in many countries and we cannot lag behind.  He is up to inspiring people to understand food as medicine, replacing fungicides, insecticides with plant-based disinfectants for water and soil, the non-use of GMOs, revolutionizing the educational system to meet the needs of teachers and students, an increase in community awareness and the importance of Venus’ words and works of love and self-love. Venus understands Uranus’ role in the feminine movement. He instructs both Taurus and Venus to take heed.  Women will be on the move in banking and the changes coming with the new currency.

Saturn will re-structure government policy in defining or re-defining our system of currency, the length of time one serves in office and the system used to bring them to office, the abolishment of insider trading in government through trusteeship, the finalization of policies for immigration and naturalization, tax reform’s place in our financial future, and the realization of government as a corporation that requires balance.  Capricorn says he will work with Saturn to fit the pieces together in re-defining of public policies and the establishment of an overseer in public dedicated buildings, prompting a change in building architecture that is more digitized and efficient for all.  He would like to do more about construction if he is allotted a bit more time as he will be moving out of his office in 2020.

Each of the puzzle builders recognizes his piece now contributes to the corners and the frame of the puzzle.  There is much more to do before the center pieces successfully interlock to heal the world.  They’ll be at it for a long time.  There will be others builders crossing the threshold as the years move on.

Uranus will be sure the air stays charged with electrical excitement. Some of us will feel sadness while experiencing some of these changes. But like others, we’ll eventually welcome the changes.  We must keep in mind and in our hearts these changes are not for a few, but for the people of the whole wide world. We are not just the players on the world’s stage we are the directors and without our courage, direction, determination and vigilance there is no play, there is no puzzle to be solved, we are the power.

We each are given a piece of the puzzle to work on in our personal lives, depending where Uranus and Taurus are birthed in our natal charts and where they have decided to transit for the next seven years.

Pull a chair up to the table and join in the solution of the world puzzle. By the way, my piece of the puzzle is marked Astrology.  I’ll try to write more about each astrological sign and what your role description is, but also how you benefit as the time goes by.

It’s time for an extremely rare and unbelievable celestial event, The American Total Solar Eclipse. The last total solar eclipse to pass over the entire United States of America took place on June 8th, 1918. This great one’s path will cross our nation from West to East, from Oregon to South Carolina, covering all of the contiguous states. Only those in the full umbra, or full shadow, of the moon will have this gift presented to them. This powerful astronomical phenomenon will turn day into night for just a few minutes. The moon will pass directly between the sun and the earth taking several minutes to reach the total eclipse of the sun.

The power of this eclipse is exceptionally strong. It will be necessary to protect the retinas of your eyes. Looking at any of an eclipses phases may cause permanent eye damage.  Please click here to visit the NASA website for safety and more information. The shadow of the eclipse will touch down in the northern part of the Pacific Ocean reaching Oregon at 9 a.m., and reaches total eclipse at 10:15 a.m.PT, then begins it chase across the United States. In New York it will have reached a partial solar eclipse (same eye safety precautions), and weather permitting, it will be visible from 1:23 p.m. attaining its maximum at 2:44 p.m. and concluding 4 p.m. DST…………….P.


medical-medium-awilliamUnbelievable!  I’m so excited. The day had finally arrived.  I had been anticipating this day, June 25th, 2016, for months and months.  I was so hyped, I stayed up until 5 a.m. thinking, praying and meditating. Now, I was late, but upon arrival at the venue it really didn’t matter.  I was there and it seemed like everyone on the eastern seaboard of the U.S.A. was also.  Oy vey, the line! You could feel the energy of anticipation. Would my little legs support me for the next hour and a half standing and waiting?  Not to worry, the time went fast after my friend and fellow seeker Baniela and I encountered some of our friends/clients, and shared social niceties and our serious, healing hopes for our futures. We were attending a daylong seminar, “Now Is Your Time to Heal,” with the Medical Medium, Anthony William!

In retrospect, it seemed in no time we were shown into the session room. We sat ourselves down, excitedly waiting for the day to begin. This was our day to hear from the man who has dedicated his life to helping people from all walks of life, color, nationality and creed to find the prescription to prevention of illness, healing and wellness through spiritual, emotional, mental and nutritional awareness.  A man, who through a selection process known only to himself and his constant companion, Spirit.

The Spirit, aptly named Compassion, has been Anthony’s spiritual teacher, guide and contact since Anthony’s 4th year of life. I was fortunate to receive this book through my own error, as I thought I had ordered another spiritual book, but here it was, so why not? Serendipity! That was it, I got it, I understood it, and this is the answer to relieving our suffering and its prevention in the future.  I thought, others are going to be so relieved to read what this man is doing for us.  He sincerely wants to see us well.  Anthony and Spirit want us to begin to heal.  It was a relief and definitely a revelation to read the message, and now to hear the words spoken aloud by the world’s only living medical medium with Divine authority, “You were not born to suffer. You don’t need to wait 10, 20 or 30 years to find the answers.”  Rightfully so! It was there in black and white, and now in person.

After the usual housekeeping chores, Anthony was introduced.  He appears as he does on his book cover, his television interviews and his YouTube presentations. Dressed casually and totally at ease, he proceeds to tell us his history and his education with Spirit.

He began the session emphasizing that our lives are gold.  He jokingly told us about the scarcity of gold stars in his days in school and that at times he had received a silver, and sometimes a bronze star, but seldom, if ever, received the sought-after gold. We all have “Gold Value.”  We need to understand that stress has a place in our lives, without stress we would not have purpose.  Stress actually gives us assistance when we start out on this journey. When physical, mental or spiritual trauma occurs, it is our sole responsibility to delve within our gold standard to find the source of healing.

We learn, we teach.  We recognize the importance of giving powerful assistance and advice to others along the way.  It is our unspoken bond to deliver the message that no one is meant to suffer; there is a way. Anthony states, “It’s viral, it spreads, it moves. Do not underestimate the power of the ripple-effect.” This is how we help each other, and they help another to build physical armor. This is our protection. ”This is ‘the armor of light’ against the nitty-gritty; the hard stuff. We have been tricked, fooled, dubbed; we’ve been had!”
