In the Earth-based, natural way to count time by the sky, the “new year” begins each year at the day and time when the Moon meets up with the Sun again in the sign of Aries, the first sign of the zodiac. This count is reflected in the ancient Medicine Wheel of indigenous tradition, and is also visible in the sky through the ancient astrological tradition. The New Moon in Aries is the natural time of the beginning of a new year, as this is the time of planting. The natural cycle of life and growth begins (is seeded or planted) and continues to grow through the year — through one cycle of life experience. The degree or “location” in the sky where the Moon and Sun conjunct in Aries changes each year. Each of the 360 degrees of the zodiac carries a specific archetypal energetic or “frequency” that effects (or “grows”) life in a specific way. Events and experiences in life follow this “code of the stars,” which amplifies the potential for certain types of things to happen on certain days. The degree of the New Moon in Aries starts out the new year and determines the energetic theme of the coming year. It tells us the primary dynamic that will be in effect to “grow” us over the year.


The nature or energetic theme of each of the 360 degrees of the zodiac can be described by a symbol – an image. Ancient texts tell us that the mathematician/astronomer-sky watchers of Mesopotamia (specifically modern-day Iraq), known as the Sabians, had the knowledge of the nature of each of the 360 degrees of the zodiac. They had the “key to the code” – the code of the themes that develop consciousness, the code of the development of life. This code is called the “Sabian Symbols.” We do not know what became of the Sabians’ symbols, but are they known to the Illuminati, the globalists of the cabal who do much more than dabble in the occult? Was the code of the Sabian symbols retained deeply in the shadows or remnants of the Knights Templar, the Rosicrucians, the priesthood of the Zaddakim, or the like? If so, has it been used by the cabal to socially engineer us? There are many questions. What we do know is that in 1925, a clairvoyant of high repute received or “channeled” a modern version of the Sabian symbols. She received a symbol or image for each of the 360 degrees of the zodiac.

This was no ordinary channeling. The symbols that psychic Elsie Wheeler channeled and astrologer Marc Edmund Jones documented in 1925, have been the focus of intensive study by astrologers ever since. This is what makes this channeling different. There is almost one hundred years of data behind it. This data shows, beyond a doubt, that there is indeed efficacy in the symbols in the ability to predict what has high potential to transpire at any given time. The Oracle Report is a daily briefing of potential energetics, based on my own study of the Sabian symbols over the past fourteen years. The archives are a repository of data that can correlate predominant energetics to historical and personal events. This year, the New Moon in Aries occurs at 6:24 pm ET/10:24 pm UT on April 7, 2016, and will “discharge” the energetic of 19 Aries and the modern-day Sabian symbol of “the magic carpet of Oriental imagery.” This symbol gives us the energetic theme for the solar-lunar month that begins on April 7 and remains in effect all year long. It provides clues to what we will see over the coming new year. One needs a magic carpet for two things only: 1) an adventure, or 2) to ride high above what is happening on the ground.


magic carpet

A magic carpet is only helpful if used – if ridden. Thus, the Sabian symbol of “the magic carpet of Oriental imagery” implies that we will go on a ride or an adventure (or both). As the solar-lunar New Year prepares to begin, we see where we are now, as the current solar-lunar year prepares to end. The Sabian symbol for the current solar-lunar year that began on April 18, 2015 and ends on April 6, 2016, is “the music of the spheres.” In combination with other astrological dynamics, the 2015 Aries New Moon marked the shift point in human consciousness, a recalibration, if you will. The recalibration or “The Awakening” overtook the cabal’s agenda. In multiple ways and from many directions, masses of people began to see the wider version of the nature of reality on our planet. On April 18, 2015, the New Moon in Aries/start of the new solar-lunar year/beginning of the year of shift, the Hundredth Monkey Effect took hold within the collective mind of humanity. The truth about the global elite and the unraveling of their control systems began to be understood on a grand scale. People on different sides of the spectrum began to come together. The Spirit of Liberty rose from the grassroots – from the ground (the Earth, Gaia Sophia) up, and continues. Humanity is uniting. Global controllers respond to this with agendas and attempts to regain the control they are losing. Their plans are suffering. Most likely, their responses will make for a “bumpy road” for everyone, including them, in the year ahead. A magic carpet would be very useful to rise above a bumpy road. We might also like a map to help us understand where we are and where we are going. We are in luck because the Sabian symbols for each of the New Moons after the Aries New Moon provide just this kind of direction.



Here is a look ahead at the Magic Carpet Ride of Solar-Lunar Year 2016 with the New Moons in the signs and the mission of each month’s energetics:

ARIES: April 7, 2016 19 Aries – “the magic carpet of Oriental imagery”

MISSION: to help us transcend worries, challenges, issues, and crumbling structures *This is the primary dynamic for the entire year, enabling us to transcend whatever develops over the year. A month of shift (since Aries is a cardinal sign, and major shifts in consciousness occur during lunar months that are the cardinal signs of Aries, Cancer, Libra, and Capricorn).

TAURUS: May 6, 2016 17 Taurus – “a symbolical battle between ‘swords and torches’”

MISSION: to help us become enlightened to our own battles and also to life of a “higher order” (one that serves all of humanity) *This month will be pivotal. The potential for war or aggression is extremely high. A “Clash of the Titans” could reverberate. Changes or “bumpiness” with banking or finance could ensue during this lunar month. Conflict and the potential for war is higher. All of this ultimately serves to rectify and realign human consciousness with what is right, fair, good, and just.

GEMINI: June 4, 2016 15 Gemini – “two Dutch children talking”

MISSION: to help the East and the West open up to each other *The globalists may intervene in a futile attempt to prevent the inevitable unity of the people of the West (as represented by the United States) and the people of the East (as represented by Russia).

CANCER: July 4, 2016 14 Cancer – “a very old man facing a vast dark space to the northeast”

MISSION: to provide clear purpose and direction, especially as things may feel daunting *This month is a shift month (dramatic shifts in consciousness). Russia is highlighted. The Great Void of Creation provides what we need to see. The potential for false flag attacks is higher. We gain a higher truth.

LEO: August 2, 2016 12 Leo – “an evening lawn party of adults

MISSION: to help us put down differences and see a road of peace (of mind, of heart, in the world). *This dynamic tends to ease things up. It may be a nice “energetic break” after the shifting that occurs the previous month.

VIRGO: September 2, 2016 10 Virgo – “two heads looking out and beyond the shadows”

MISSION: to help us see beyond duality, beyond divide and conquer efforts *In July, one “head” or person was “facing a vast dark space,” and now we have “two heads” seeing beyond shadows. Both East and West may have to face down the shadow side (the globalist cabal) during September. The symbol implies a degree of unity between the two “heads.”

LIBRA: September 30, 2016 09 Libra – “three old masters hanging in a special room in an art gallery”

MISSION: to provide demonstrations or illustrations of truth *Historically, masters of art are considered those who can most accurately portray real life through paint. The goal is to make images that are true to life. The month of October, notorious for surprises, is designed to bring the truth to light. The previous month involved “two heads,” but now another enters the scene, as the symbol images three people. A third-party may intervene. This is also a cardinal lunar month — a shift month.

SCORPIO: October 30, 2016 08 Scorpio – “the Moon shining across a lake”

MISSION: to help us reflect in order to empower us *A lot has come to light by this time in the Year of the Magic Carpet Ride. We go through an internal process of reevaluation of all that has happened. Fortitude is strengthened. The heart (our feelings) leads us. What is aligned with the value of life, love, and liberty ripples out into the field of the collective consciousness.

SAGITTARIUS: November 29, 2016 08 Sagittarius – “deep within the depths of the Earth, new elements are being formed”

MISSION: to help us create the Second Renaissance *The gravity and magnitude of this energy crumbles people, places, and things that are not in alignment with nature and the inherent good nature of humankind. The Goddess wells up to teach lessons. Foundations and paradigms are rocked. The Earth may rock more this month. The agendas of “transhumanism” (going beyond our humanity, shedding or losing our humanity) are reversed, as a paradigm of “interhumanism” (becoming more human, embracing or finding our humanity) blossoms. Overall, what develops in our lives and in the world is the stuff of which the Second Renaissance, the rebirth of freedom and civilization based on the values of life, liberty, and love is built.

CAPRICORN: December 29, 2016 09 Capricorn – “an angel carrying a harp”

MISSION: to help us create harmony *This month greatly furthers the year’s mission to help us transcend turmoil, conflict, or dissonance. Peace (of mind, of heart, in the world) seeks to be restored. Spiritual connection is strengthened, providing sanctuary. People come together as a force. The highest octaves of what we thought was possible are transcended. This is a very powerful month, and is a shift month.

AQUARIUS: January 27, 2017 09 Aquarius – “a flag is seen turning into an eagle”

MISSION: to help us transform *This month, the Magic Carpet Ride turns into what feels like a completely different ride. The way things used to be are not the way they are now. We see what it has taken to transcend the trouble, consternation, and strife of a crumbling control system. United, we speak. United, we stand. We hold the line and the standard of expectation for civilized beings. This is a visionary time.

PISCES: February 26, 2017 09 Pisces – “the race begins: intent on outdistancing his rivals, a jockey spurs his horse to great speed”

MISSION: to help us prevail *This month is critical. Even though it is not a New Moon in a cardinal sign, shifts will be quite evident. We want to be prepared to go the distance. The fast pace of this energy is unparalleled within the Sabian symbols. It tests endurance to the brink. Knowing this in advance helps us plan our resources and energy in order to keep the pace, but reminds us to hold back some reserves for the end. Further serious degradation of the crumbling control systems is experienced. The underdog always wins with this energetic. In the end, goodness prevails. This we know. The “fall of the cabal” means the “rise of humanity.” As the world grounds seem to shift beneath our feet, we rise above the fray for an elevated view. This year, we transcend a myriad of things that have limited and controlled us, all the while remaining securely linked to Mother Earth and the cycles of the Moon and Sun. Are you ready for renaissance? Your magic carpet awaits.



Note for clarity: If a New Moon takes place at 50 or more arc minutes into the degree, I look to the next degree for the next Sabian symbol. For example, the Cancer New Moon occurs at 12 Cancer 53 (the Sabian symbol for 13 Cancer, as the degree is always “rounded up”). Since it happens 53 arc minutes into 13 Cancer and is a New Moon, the next degree, 14 Cancer is used. I only apply this to New Moons, and the reason is that energy moves in waves. New Moons are about new energies. It has been my experience that New Moons lean heavily toward the next degree when the conjunction of the Sun and Moon is 50+ arc minutes into a degree. Most of the degree’s energy has already been discharged, and the new degree’s energy is building. We always build on the new at the New Moon.

3 Reasons Why Introverts Are Undervalued in Today’s Society




introverts undervalued society

It’s undeniable that our society favors assertive extroverted personalities with strong communication skills and underestimates the quiet ones. If you are an introvert, you have probably learned it the hard way.

It could be that you felt unseen in the classroom as a child or teen. Or you may have watched your less competent co-workers get a promotion thanks to their social skills.

It feels unfair, but if you think about our society, it makes perfect sense. The consumerist mindset that has become our second nature inevitably affects the way we treat other people. It seems that everything, including our personal qualities and worth as human beings, is translated into some kind of market value.

In other words, to make other people see your worth in personal or professional life, you need to be able to ‘sell yourself’. Yes, this expression alone tells it all.

You need to know how to make a good first impression, say the right things, and be assertive. If you can’t do it, you are perceived as incapable and uninteresting – whether we are talking about a job interview or an informal social gathering.

But it’s not the only reason why introverts are undervalued in our society. Here are a few more:

1. They are less efficient in teamwork

Communication and teamwork skills are required for all kinds of jobs. It seems that without being able to work in a team, it’s impossible to do your job even if your duties don’t involve interaction with clients.

Introverts are much more efficient when they work on their own and are given a certain extent of independence. They thrive in quiet environments with few distractions and interactions. This is when a quiet person gets the chance to unleash their creative self and make good use of their analytical skills.

Most office jobs don’t give employees this opportunity. Office meetings, group projects, phone calls and all the other attributes of a 9-to-5 job make it almost impossible for an introvert to be productive.

2. They don’t like to be in the spotlight

Sometimes it feels like we are living in a society of attention seekers. Today, you are expected to go public about the most personal matters, such as your relationship and family life.

People share their most intimate thoughts and feelings on social media, post updates about the most trivial events, such as what they had for dinner, and upload countless selfies.

Introverts are among those who still value privacy. They are less likely to showcase their lives online or share the details of their personal affairs with the whole world.

At the same time, the quiet ones don’t like to be in the spotlight at social events. An introvert will never interrupt you. They will listen to you and talk only when they have something important to say. This tendency to avoid attention can be mistaken for insecurity and even a lack of intelligence.

3. They prefer to be real than to be ‘nice’

If you want to make a good impression on others, you are expected to be nice. But what does it mean to be ‘nice’ anyway?

In an introvert’s mind, it equals saying things you don’t mean. Quiet personalities will never bombard you with compliments or say meaningless social pleasantries just to win your fondness. But if an introvert said something nice to you, then be sure that they truly meant it.

Small talk is another component of social relationships most introverts struggle with. To them, it embodies utterly dull, uncomfortable, and pointless conversations they can perfectly do without. For this reason, introverts are often mistakenly believed to hate people.

The truth is that they don’t – they just crave stimulating, meaningful conversations and choose their social circle more carefully than extroverts.

In my book, The Power of Misfits: How to Find Your Place in a World You Don’t Fit In, I write about the reasons why so many introverts feel inadequate and alienated from other people in today’s society. It all goes down to social expectations this personality type has to deal with from a very early age.

But the good news is that every introvert can overcome the negative effects of these expectations and find the right path in this loud, extroverted world.

The Esoteric Meaning Behind Neo’s Interrogation Scene in The Matrix




esoteric meaning neo interrogation matrix

More than 20 years old now, The Matrix is recognized by fans across the world as being one of the most brilliant films in history, most notably for its deeper meaning and esoteric philosophy.


One scene that is particularly intriguing, considering the social climate of today, is Neo’s interrogation by the Agents of the Matrix.

Now, before we dig into the potential hidden meaning here, as I perceive it, and how Neo found himself in this uncomfortable position to begin with, let’s first establish some key points in relation to the overall story line that will help us to appreciate the implications behind this scene a little bit more.

What Does The Character Neo Represent in the Matrix?

Neo in ancient Greek (νέος) means new/young one. This is an important piece of the puzzle to help us understand what the directors of the film are trying to communicate to us. With that said, when we assess Neo’s character in the first film, we find that he is a solitary individual that keeps to himself and is struggling to find deeper meaning in this world by constantly searching the internet.

What Does The Character Morpheus Represent in the Matrix?

Morpheus in Greek mythology is a messenger of the gods. He appears to humans through dreams with the intention of delivering divine Knowledge and Truth. In the Greek mythos, he can appear in almost any form in people’s dreams, which could be because anyone, regardless of race, gender, or outward appearance, can be a messenger of enlightenment and Truth.

The First Matrix Film is About The Beginning of the Journey to Awakening

With the understanding of the deeper meaning behind what Neo and Morpheus’ characters represent in the film, we can now appreciate the intro scene of Neo sleeping (whilst searching for Morpheus) through a different lens of perception and awareness.

You see, Neo sleeping whilst searching online for Morpheus represents the early stages of the Truth seekers journey — “asleep” but still searching for deeper meaning in life — and hoping to find that meaning by seeking out a “messenger” of higher Knowledge and Truth.

Truth is Terrorism in the Empire of Lies

Through his incessant efforts, Neo begins to get closer and closer to finding the elusive Morpheus. This, however, also attracts the unwanted attention of the Agents in the Matrix, which represent the enforcers of the shadow government of this system. Their job is to ensure that no one exposes what the Matrix really is, and how it turns unsuspecting every day human beings into useful resources that it can use and exploit.


The Agents proceed to apprehend Neo and interrogate him, where they make it very clear that they’ve been spying on him and keeping meticulous records of his activities, both online and offline, for quite some time now. As we all know very well today, all around the world intelligence agencies are doing exactly that — tracking what we view online and keeping meticulous records on many of our movements.

The agents, however, do not see Neo as being a major threat to the Matrix system, as he is still in the early stages of his awakening and does not know enough to be a major threat. Instead, they offer him a deal where they will be willing to “wipe the slate clean” on his illegal activities online, if Neo will simply help them track down the man they call Morpheus, who they claim is “a known terrorist” that is “considered by many authorities to be the most dangerous man alive”.

This represents that the single greatest threat to this manipulative system — which is overwhelmingly ruled by deception and exploitation — is any messenger of higher Knowledge and Truth that can potentially awaken those who are still “asleep” to what the proverbial Matrix really is. In fact, one could argue this sort of power struggle has been going on for thousands of years, and is possibly why Socrates was accused of “corrupting the youth” by the ruling class more than 2,000 years ago and subsequently sentenced to death; or why Fred Hampton was assassinated by government authorities in 1969; or, in more recent history, why civilians that were peacefully protesting against Wall Street and the bankers for their part in destroying the world economy in 2008, were targeted by the FBI and even labelled as potential “domestic terrorists“.

Simply put, Truth is terrorism in the empire of lies.

Imaginary Rights

Neo, still being somewhat naïve and unbegun in his journey, rejects the Agent’s offer and demands he get a phone call because “I know my rights!”

To this, Agent Smith retorts, “tell me Mr. Anderson, what good is a phone call if you’re unable to speak?”, which results in Neo’s mouth warping in the most eerie of ways.


This scene represents a lesson that all genuine Truth seekers eventually come to learn — this system is not concerned with human rights nor is it concerned with upholding authentic justice. Instead, it inculcates these beliefs and misperceptions into our minds from a very young age, because it serves to help legitimize its unnecessary existence in the eyes of the unsuspecting public and indoctrinate us as to why we think we need it. But in reality, our government guaranteed “rights” can be taken away from us in the blink of an eye.

In relation to current events, for example, many thousands of people worldwide have been arrested for violating curfew orders; In one Indian state, civilians were told they must take selfies every hour and send it to the authorities to prove that they are staying indoors; in South Africa, some have been fined for not wearing masks while driving their cars; In Boston in the United States, people have even been told that they will be fined if they walk “the wrong direction” down the street; Homeless people in France have reportedly been fined for not staying indoors; Some people have been arrested for attending funerals of loved ones because it violated lockdown orders; Others (including doctors and scientists) have had their right to freedom of speech censored online; In Australia, a pregnant woman was actually arrested in her home for facebook posts that encouraged protesting against the lockdown; According to the International Labor Organization, tens of millions are being pushed into unemployment; and travel all around the world has been severely restricted by these authorities who have taken it upon themselves to be the rulers of this planet by dictating what the rest of us can and cannot do. Whether you agree with these policies or not, these things cannot logically be called “rights” since they are so very easily violated and taken away from us.

We Must Start With the Imagination

There are many other examples that demonstrate how our government given “rights” are more of a comforting illusion than an actual reality, such as the CIA’s secretive Black Site torture programs, which have been done in cooperation with other intelligence agencies and authorities throughout the world. In these programs, people have been kidnapped — without any legal criminal charge or trial — and then taken to undisclosed secret locations where many of them are tortured for many months on end, in ways that are considered to be in violation of international law and basic human rights. The CIA, of course, simply claims they are suspected terrorists. In 2014, however, a Senate Intelligence Committee Report found that at least 26 of the people that were kidnapped and tortured were actually “wrongfully detained”.

Wake Up Neo — You Are the One

Fortunately, Neo manages to escape this unthinkable situation without any serious injury or harm. Soon after, he is contacted by Morpheus, where he is told that he was very lucky that the Agents underestimated his great potential and spared him, because if the Agents had known the great secret that Morpheus knows, then Neo would probably be dead.

Confused by the obvious strangeness of everything taking place, Neo asks Morpheus what the hell is going on, and what exactly is he talking about?? Without hesitation, Morpheus replies to him, “You are the one Neo — You see, you may have spent the last few years looking for me, but I have spent my entire life looking for you.”

This is perhaps the most important lesson the new Truth seeker must eventually come to learn — We are the ones we have been waiting for to change this corrupt world my friends; and we must stop looking for heroes and human leaders to absolve us of this very serious responsibility. Instead, we must all take on the role of Morpheus — which is to awaken as many Neo’s (new minds) as we possibly can, whilst also taking on the role that represents the journey of Neo, by challenging ourselves to become the best version of who we authentically are.

By doing this, we will help to awaken and unleash the unique creative forces of each individual’s problem solving imagination; and we will also find unity in our shared struggle against the injustices, and corruption, of this inhumane system which invariably exploits us all.

If not us, then who? And if not now, then when?

This Clever & Controversial Artwork Will Help You Think Deeper About Society




True artists are what I view as the antithesis of entertainers…

You see, an entertainer is concerned with popular opinion and giving the public what it wants to see. They intoxicate us with mindless amusements to help us escape reality and the everyday stresses of life. But artists, on the other hand, they give us what we need to see; by challenging us to to think deeper about the nature of reality, and the society in which we live, and they do this through the transcendent language of art.

With that said, I decided to collect some of the most thought provoking artwork from around the internet and offered my own little commentary on them…
