COSMIC WAVES OVERVIEW
SIDEREAL WESTERN ASTROLOGY
Cosmic Waves Overview
I wanted to review about the T Square in the “get it together” interpersonal aspects of Neptune (group consciousness), the North Node (destiny) and Saturn (learn your lessons). As the next weeks go by there will be some positive movement concerning this cosmic life lesson we are enduring. In general, the element of Neptune (mass consciousness and subliminal impulses) is contrary to the North Node (of the future) all squared to Saturn (the tough task master). Right now, you know that we are wrestling with what the right path looks like. What we have been dwelling on is what we dislike the most about the actual situation. Get used to it, because there are still many who just are struggling with the changing times. The challenge is to include the needs that stabilize us, not just ranting. What is good this week is that there will be some heartfelt talks about what you want in life. Getting clarity of what is really right for you is the big question. Are you asking for more or less than your share? Many are already making that shift from consumerism to living a simpler life and enjoying it. Remember your impressions because in a few weeks when Mars powers up those internal conflicts, you will want to have a baseline set with a level head.
Also that Grand Trine in Water will release on Monday, but it will be hard to tell. Because other great heartfelt connections will continue and amp up on slightly different levels. Uranus has been mostly harsh, but will turn benefit for a while. This Includes some extra unusual and fortuitous opportunities later this week. Still a lot to slog through in the daily heartbeat, but count your blessings that some area of life is boring. Could get very interesting for a number of people through the next week.

COSMIC WAVES FORECAST JULY 15TH TO 21ST 2016
SIDEREAL WESTERN ASTROLOGY
For the lovers and dreamers out there, Friday starts a shift in the Grand Trine into all water signs. Depending on how stable you and your intended are, this could be a hallmark of closer ties and promises. What is interesting is all the players in this are at 0* (Pisces, Scorpio and Cancer). Traditionally the actual first degree or so of a shift is stressful. With all this emotional focus, I suggest that the three phases of Water can be fully explored for healing. The story goes that Pisces is mutable, expressed as an oscillation of all that can be watery or emotional in nature. Cancer then takes that information and synthesizes the information for a direction of use. Then Scorpio creates the transformation into the full embodiment of the emotional nature. I suggest that many will be going into new territories of greater understanding and lasting emotional connection. This will occur until July 23rd, 2016. So pay attention and stay engaged if you are interested in that connection of a lifetime. If there is much emotional baggage involved, patience and understanding will be necessary!
On the world front, there is still a lot that is not visible or knowable. Stay vigilant to the subtext and demand better if it is foul. That Square with Neptune and Saturn will break up about November 3rd, 2016. The good thing is the political world is starting to respond to the very souls they represent, although the filter of each varies in ethics and outcomes. Yep, it is a moving target, but then the voice of the people has been complacent for so long, the adaption will take time. Stay hopeful but aware.

Getting Back to Basics
Returning to the Mystical Path of the Masters
with Samir Al-Hamed
Sundays at 2:45 pm
What was Christianity before being politicized by Rome? Have the original teachings of Islam experienced something similar? Join Sam as he explores the parallel hijacking of these two powerful forces.
This month’s teachings: Clement of Alexandria and the period up to the reign of Emperor Constantine with an emphasis in Greek philosophy and Early Christian Thought.
Clement of Alexandria was a convert to Christianity, he was an educated man who was familiar with classical Greek philosophy and literature. As his three major works demonstrate, Clement was influenced by Hellenistic philosophy to a greater extent than any other Christian thinker of his time, and in particular by Plato and the Stoics. His secret works, which exist only in fragments, suggest that he was also familiar with pre-Christian Jewish esotericism and Gnosticism. In one of his works he argued that Greek philosophy had its origin among non-Greeks, claiming that both Plato and Pythagoras were taught by Egyptian scholars. Among his pupils were Origen and Alexander of Jerusalem.
