The End of Scarcity and the Return of the Bird Tribes

The Naked Songwriter Podcast – Episode #31: The End of Scarcity

Why the end of scarcity on Planet Earth can happen within 5-10 years and what you can do to make that a reality.

The End of Scarcity and the Return of the Bird Tribes - Naked Songwriter podcast #31

We all know that imagination is stronger than willpower and that, among the mental powers, only imagination is capable of creating new forms and experiences. So why do we continue to focus on the list of problems and obstacles we supposedly must overcome to get what we want? Why don’t we focus instead on the list that holds our heart’s desires?

Why would our governments lie about free energy and alien technologies? Why would we consider bringing about the end of scarcity in our lifetimes such a crazy idea that we — the artists, visionaries, meditators, yogis, and healers — don’t even discuss it?

I discovered intriguing answers to these questions in two strangely resonant mythologies: the ancient Native American ‘bird tribes’ and the modern phenomenon of UFOs and an alien-influenced shadow government. Continue reading

Mercury Retrograde Is Over (Now What?)

Mercury Storms, Mars and Saturn Station, Pisces Full Moon – August 2018

Not Quite Full Speed Ahead

Although the massive planetary retrograde energies that have colored the last few months are starting to shift, we aren’t out of the woods quite yet. Mars stations direct on August 27, just after the Pisces Full Moon on August 26.

While Mercury resuming direct motion should bring mental clarity, the energetic whirlpool doesn’t really clear until September 7 when Saturn, which has been retrograde since mid-April, also returns to direct motion. Here’s how to approach the next two weeks…

The Mercury Storm

Astrologers often refer to the three or four days surrounding the exact moment when Mercury stations retrograde or returns to direct motion “the Mercury storm.” These periods tend to produce the most concentrated negative effects associated with Mercury retrogrades: technical malfunctions, traffic snafus, garbled communication, and a general inability to think or communicate clearly.

This particular Mercury storm was off the chain! Mercury returned to direct motion on Sunday, August 19. I talked to my daughter on the phone on Monday evening.

“Dad, what’s going on in the skies that is making it IMPOSSIBLE for me to focus?!” she demanded. “Something must be happening in the astrology. I mean, I start on my homework –  then I get distracted. Then I go back to it. Then I get distracted. Then I go back to it – distracted again! I’m so frustrated.” Continue reading

The Big One – Total Lunar Eclipse Aquarius Conjunct Mars July 27 2018

The Good News (Did You Know Mother Earth Loves You?)

The Naked Songwriter Podcast #29

Aquarius lunar eclipse astrology podcast July 27 2018 Mars retrograde Mercury retrograde

This may not be “the” Big One, but it’s big. The blood moon total lunar eclipse at 4 Aquarius 44 on Friday, July 27 is tightly conjunct Mars and square Uranus in Taurus. It’s also conjunct the USA’s South Node, indicating a time of karma coming due for the United States.

(The eclipse, which is supposed to be the longest lunar eclipse in 100 years, will not be visible in the USA but should be visible in Europe, Asia, Australia and New Zealand.)

If we project all the bad news of the last two years onto this eclipse, it’s pretty easy to conjure up some dire disaster scenarios. So…what do we do? Is there anything we can do?

Yes, there is. It requires a leap of faith. It may require unplugging a couple devices. But it’s a solution based in Reality, not the illusions we are being sold by the parasite-infested overlords of the degraded reality (and likely by some of the people closest to you).

The Antidote: Cancer Solar Eclipse July 12 2018

Solar Eclipse Opposition Pluto

Cancer Solar Eclipse July 12 2018

This is the first of three consecutive eclipses and the only one of the series that’s not in Leo-Aquarius. It’s also interesting because the Sun and Moon at 20 Cancer 41′ are opposition Pluto at 20 Capricorn. That’s pretty heavy. But, as you can see in the chart, the eclipse Sun and Moon also form a creative, inspirational Grand Trine in the water signs with Neptune and Jupiter.

So what does that mean, and how can you work with it? Continue reading

The Summer of ??? Dealing with Mars Retrograde in Aquarius

Mars Retrograde and Out of Bounds: All Bets Are Off

That’s the phrase I keep hearing in my mind whenever I think about the astrological storm brewing over the next two months. Meaning (I think):

No one knows what’s going to happen. A lot of what happens will be beyond my control. So I’m going to make up my mind right now that I’m going to roll with the punches, keep my expectations light, stay limber, keep grounding and centering….and trust that it’s all proceeding according to the master plan.

Mars retrograde: activate your inner warriorI’m sure you’re feeling the energy already, especially after the Capricorn Full Moon conjunct Saturn on June 27/28 (depending on time zone). I’m going to give you my take on some of the major astrological events happening between now and September.

If your mind glazes over at the mention of aspects, retrogrades and the like, just know that (a) this time period promises to take us on a pretty wild ride and (b) there are things you can do to improve your experience of this summer. Besides drinking heavily or rocking yourself to sleep in the fetal position every night.

Mars Retrograde and Out of Bounds

Expect frustration, delays, unseen obstacles, angry people projecting their shadows onto you, and weird energy patterns (such as heavy fatigue punctuated by bursts of manic productivity).

When the red planet goes retrograde, our assertive, aggressive, anger energy gets turned inward and backwards in time. Generally speaking, Mars Rx periods are not good times to launch a new business, roll out your new membership program, or start a brand-new creative project. Continue reading

Out of Bounds – Mars Retrograde in Aquarius 2018 Preview

Roseanne Barr’s Natal Chart and Transits and the Astrology of June – September 2018

In this video I explore the upcoming Mars retrograde in Aquarius through Roseanne Barr’s astrology. The Sagittarius Moon on May 29, 2018 was exactly conjunct Roseanne’s Mercury and was opposition her Gemini Moon during her early morning Twitter session. Her show was cancelled during the Full Moon later that morning.

This is a fascinating study in how transits can trigger underlying themes in the chart, especially when supported by aspects from progressed planets.

The other fascinating thing about Roseanne’s chart is that her Ascendant (persona, identity) is conjunct the USA’s natal South Node at 7 Aquarius. And, guess what else is happening at 7 Aquarius this summer? Continue reading

The Pleasure Revolution – Gemini New Moon 2018

Debunking the Myth of Sacrifice with Corin Grillo – The Naked Songwriter Podcast #27

Corin Grillo talks about the "fear virus" with DK Brainard - The Naked Songwriter PodcastToday’s Gemini New Moon falls at the midway point of the Great Attractor and the Galactic Center, suggesting a cosmic upgrade in consciousness is on offer.

Psychotherapist, healer, and fearless role model Corin Grillo knows a lot about consciousness – and specifically what it takes to move out of depression, despair and poverty consciousness and into authenticity, pleasure, and bliss.

In this interview, Corin and I talk about the parasitic fear virus that has afflicted humanity for thousands of years and how we can free ourselves from it. We discuss the curious case of “born-again” Doreen Virtue and the cost of refusing to face our shadows. Corin talks about the dead bird that regenerated before her eyes and convinced her that the angels are real. And a whole lot more! Continue reading

Burning Down the House – Uranus in Taurus

When Things Go Boom – The Naked Songwriter Podcast #26

Uranus blows things up. It burns things down. But always with the intent of setting us free to be who we really are. Uranus in Taurus is determined to recreate society so we are free to actually enjoy our lives. In this podcast, I share a talk I did recently on Uranus in Taurus plus thoughts on the Sagittarius Full Moon and Roseanne Barr’s chart.

The fabulous Corin Grillo invited me into her Inner Sanctum group to talk about how this is likely to go down over the next seven years….and what we can do as individuals to benefit from Uranus in Taurus. In the interview I talk about:

  • How Uranus in Taurus is likely to affect us as individuals and as a society
  • What we ‘spiritual people’ tend to get fooled into believing we need to change and what Uranus will truly be trying to blast out of us
  • The upcoming Mars retrograde and long-running Mars-Uranus square
  • And the story of John Varley, the painter who was also an amateur astrologer and was obsessed with understanding Uranus’ astrological influence after its rediscovery in 1781.

PS – I told Varley’s story with a few wrong details He actually stayed home instead of going out that day, because he was absolutely convinced something dangerous was going to happen. Sure enough, his house caught on fire. According to his son Albert,

“He was so delighted at having discovered what the astrological significance of Uranus was, that he sat down while his house was burning, knowing though he did, that he was not insured for a penny, to write an account of his discovery…Although he lost everything in the fire, he regarded that as a small matter compared with his discovery of the new planet’s potential.”
