THE GUARDIAN OF TRANSFORMATION by Joan Pancoe
To commit a mistake is not wrong—commit as many mistakes as possible, because that is the way you will be learning more. But don’t commit the same mistake again and again, because that makes you stupid.” OSHO
I’ve never felt the need to mention Mercury RX in these newsletters before now. WHY? Because Mercury retrogrades (i.e. appears to move backwards in the sky) as regularly as clockwork: three times every year for three weeks each time—with a 10-day+ slowing-down shadow period and a ten-day+ picking-up-speed direct shadow period on either side.
This means that, for over a third of every year, we’re subject to tech, travel and communications glitches—ALL governed by Mercury—as an absolutely normal part of life on planet Earth. But, this year, for the first time in American history, Mercury is stationing retrograde on November 6th, 2012, the day of our presidential election at 6:04 PM EST! (And it’s already in its retrograde shadow as you read this.)
The only other time something similar happened was—you guessed it—in 2000, when Mercury stationed direct on Election Day leading to some classic hallmarks of Mercury RX: chaos, confusion and hanging chads—creating, many would say, a disastrous outcome from which we’re still recovering. A Mercury RX fiasco indeed!
Cosmic Trickster Uranus, the higher octave of Mercury, is also retrograde through December 13th, just days after Mercury pulls out of his direct shadow. This indicates that electoral shenanigans will once again be rife and probably not fully resolved until mid-December. Some of the areas that Communications Trickster Mercury rules are: mail-in voter miscounts, computerized and high-tech fraud, id-photo voter challenges, popular vote vs. electoral college (based on the census—but don’t get me started on how bogus that system is!), and of course chads, if there are any of those still hanging around.
I’m usually not very political—at least in a public forum—-and prefer, as a Taoist and Tantrika—to go with the Flow and work with whatever arises personally and en masse as perfect fuel for soul growth and karmic healing. However, in this case, there are some things we can choose to do to positively affect the mass tone as we maintain a calm and stable core of Being amidst any chaos and disorder that arises:
1. Vote our conscience and encourage our loved ones to get out and do the same.
2. Hold the faith that once all the contested votes and malfeasance mischief dies down, it will be revealed that the mass consciousness has taken the high road—towards the Light of equal rights for all. (In a complete coyote trickster energy reversal of the last Mercury RX election cycle, 12 years ago.)
3. Back up this faith (or borrow mine:)) with my prediction that All is well and All will be well, even if it does takes until December 17th for there to be relative calm again, based on all astrological and cosmic significators—much less the polls and pundits.
On another note, if your body karma—or any other type of karmic issues—are figuratively whacking you “long side the head” to get your attention (courtesy of Karmic Teacher Saturn and the North Node of Destiny both in Scorpio, the sign of “Let’s get on with it!”)—perhaps it’s time to schedule that psychic/karmic/soul-level consult (the one you’ve been thinking about doing forever) to clarify exactly what is happening, why and, most importantly, how to get on with clearing your side of the karmic street . . . sooner rather than later.
It’s also last call time to register for my NYC workshop as—while space is unlimited—seating isn’t:
HEALING YOUR BODY KARMA: THE MISSING LINK IN THE WEIGHT-LOSS SOLUTION
We all know the major contributing factors we need to address if we want to maintain optimum health, weight and body-image:
1. Genetics and brain chemistry
2. Childhood and environmental influences
3. Emotional, physical and sexual abuse
4. Food addictions and allergies
5. Unhealthy food choices and lack of exercise
6. Portion control and bowel hygiene
7. Liver and gallbladder cleansing
But what if we’ve been consciously working with all of the above for years and STILL feel challenged in maintaining a healthy weight and self-image?
Then: It’s time to consider that, even though all these factors are essential components in the weight-loss solution, they are, in actuality, simply the tip of the karmic iceberg.
In this workshop, we’ll explore the soul-level perspective that each lifetime is a chapter in the soul’s story and that to understand and make sense of our body challenges in this life—we’ll need to look into the preceding chapters.
Joan will share case studies from over thirty years of past-life regression therapy to explain how:
- In past lives, psychic attachment to a larger body type was created for legitimate reasons of physical and emotional safety and security.
- These limiting karmic beliefs and fears are then carried into the present life to be healed.
- The core issue in allowing for a healthier self-image and weight to manifest is through releasing this karma in the cellular memory of the mental, emotional and psychic bodies.
In closing, Joan will offer psychic mini-readings on this theme.
