Wake Up! 2020 Astrology

This Is the Time We’ve Been Waiting For

Are you ready?

I do pretty much all of my astrology writing and video-making over at my new spiritual creative community, Cosmic Fire. But for those of you just discovering my work, here’s a primer on the 2020 Great Awakening featuring some of my videos and podcast interviews.

January: Where This Is All Heading and What That Means for You

In January, my friend Corin Grillo (author of The Angel Experiment) invited me to her monthly Inner Sanctum group to look at the year ahead:

DK Brainard astrologer 2020 predictions

It is still a year with tremendous power for those who are focused and committed to the path of their highest good. And, it’s seriously time to wake up to the reality of the Matrix and the fact that you absolutely cannot be pursuing Matrix-level goals and expect a good outcome. Going forward, the only security is in aligning with our highest selves and purpose and connecting with likeminded community: You must learn discernment!! The mainstream media (and a lot of well-meaning people who are totally stuck in Matrix programming) are blasting huge waves of fear and misinformation designed to keep you from acting on your own inner guidance. You can’t afford to trust any perceived or self-styled authorities any more.

Question everything.

March: Jupiter-Pluto in Capricorn – Global Lockdown

On March 14, I predicted the possibility of martial law being enacted in the U.S. that week, as Mars was about to make conjunctions with both Jupiter and Pluto on March 20 and March 22. (The first of three Jupiter-Pluto conjunctions in 2020 would be exact on April 4).

This prediction popped out during our Cosmic Fire Sunday mastermind call as I was looking at the Mars-Jupiter-Pluto conjunction in Capricorn. The video below is a one-minute excerpt (with charts) from that call. The second Jupiter-Pluto conjunctions happens on Monday, June 29.

April/May: Coronavirus and the USA’s Astrology in 2020 and Beyond

4TGV Corin Grillo Golden Vine podcast covid fear of death
Corin Grillo interviewed me on her Golden Vine podcast. We talked about why the American people – including so-called spiritual teachers and “woke people” are so ungodly terrified of death. And how the shamanic practice of befriending your death could change the world.

Celebrity psychic Laura Powers interviewed me about how we can work with the 2020 astrology to create a positive outcome for ourselves and the world.

June: Two Eclipses, Mercury Retrograde, and Jupiter-Pluto #2

The build-up to the first of three eclipses between June 5 and July 5 brought huge protests (as well as violence and massive property destruction) in many American cities.

I broke down all three eclipses in June and July – including connections to the pre-9/11 Cancer solar eclipse in 2011 in this video:

Reality Beyond the Matrix?

It’s hard to see much of a break in the intensity for the rest of the year. Mars will be retrograde in Aries in September and October, Mercury is retrograde in October, stationing direct on election day in the U.S. (shades of the 2000 election?) and then we have two more eclipses before the once-in-20-years Great Conjunction of Jupiter and Saturn in Aquarius.

The parasitic forces of control, greed, violence and force that have oppressed humanity for thousands of years are doubling down in 2020. They know this could be the end of the line and they are engaging (via their human hosts in the mainstream media, deep state, politics, and corporate-financial systems) in all-out psychological warfare on the people.

That sucks. And, this our chance to make a prison break and restore this beautiful planet to her true Reality of love, art, beauty and fairness for all.

We can’t do it alone and we can’t do it halfway. You’re either waking up or you’re choosing to stay tethered to the Matrix wheel of karma. For those of you who are choosing the red pill option, I invite you to check out our online community of artists, visionaries, healers, and makers  at CosmicFire.org.

My partner Phoenix and I are doing a series of four community circle calls free for Cosmic Fire members during eclipse season. (During last summer’s eclipse season, we offered a similar series of calls for $99/month.)

You can join us for a monthly donation of as little as $11 (and we have scholarships for people who really can’t come up with $11 – apply within). All members of our community get access to the eclipse season calls, to our private (no ads, no spies, no trolls) forum, to our library of meditations and spiritual teachings, and more. No contracts, no obligations (other than walking in integrity), no bullshit – you can stay for a month or stay forever.

How to Find Alien Patterns In Your Natal Chart

What are the alien patterns in astrology?

Alien patterns are specialized energy configurations in the natal horoscope.  The most common alien patterns include a conjunction of the Sun, Moon, or Ascendant with one of the four outer planets (Saturn, Uranus, Neptune, Pluto).

What are the alien patterns? | How do I know if I have an alien pattern in my chart?

I’ve been working with the alien patterns framework with clients for about 15 years. My experience shows that while these people are unusually gifted, they also tend to be unusually troubled.

The alien patterns were discovered by astrologer Edwin Steinbrecher, who wrote about them in his book The Inner Guide Meditation. Steinbrecher named these chart configurations alien patterns because people with one or more of these patterns in their natal chart shared a similar sense of alienation, of other-ness. Even in childhood, they felt apart from others. They were conscious of being treated differently, of not belonging, of not being able to fit in. From a young age they saw the world from a remarkably different viewpoint than most of the people around them.

I’ve had several alien pattern clients tell me they knew they must have been adopted: “I kept badgering my parents to tell me how to find my real family.”

These energies are not easy to carry through life because their function is disruptive and transformative and because they are always active on some level. These archetypes are so powerful that one can only suppress them for so long. Also, they are distinctly transpersonal or non-human. The alien pattern archetypes carry the intention of destroying old, corrupt emotional patterns, thought forms and behaviors – and they don’t care whether the person who is being triggered by them likes it or not.

Alien pattern people tend to find relationships uniquely challenging, especially relationships with family and intimate partners. Because they are – usually unconsciously – always triggering the people closest to them to evolve and transform, they evoke strong reactions from others.

These reactions range from intense neediness to verbal, psychological and emotional abuse, and sometimes outright physical violence. I tell my alien pattern clients that many of the people they will attract in this lifetime are drawn to them because the other person’s soul wants the alien pattern medicine the client carries. But if the other person is locked in an egoic mind state of fear, shame, separation or control, their ego will fight desperately to stay in charge.

I’m going to be sharing 15 years’ experience working with alien pattern clients in my new Alien Patterns in Astrology class, beginning September 10, 2020.

Types of Alien Patterns

Power alien patterns
People with natal Sun conjunct Saturn, Uranus, Neptune, or Pluto. These people function as initiators or shamans of the planetary archetype they carry. They radiate the archetypal energy of the planet in an active, outer-directed, traditionally masculine way.

Vessel alien patterns
People with natal Moon conjunct Saturn, Uranus, Neptune, or Pluto. These people carry the archetypal energy of the outer planet in a more traditionally feminine way. They magnetize or pull up the energy of the planetary archetype in everyone they connect with.

Instrument alien patterns
People with Saturn, Uranus, Neptune, or Pluto in the 1st House or conjunct the Ascendant from the 12th House. These people function as amplifiers and receivers of the planetary energy and, according to Steinbrecher, “Their abilities are intrinsic to their physical bodies.”

Adept alien patterns
These people have none of the traditional modern planets, nor the ASC, in one of the four elements or in one of the three modes. These people intrinsically understand the element or mode they lack and are adept at helping others in that area. However, they tend to struggle with this same energy themselves until they learn to share their gift with others.

Fire adepts, for example, have no planets (nor the ASC) in any of the three fire signs. They excel at helping others find their passion, discover the courage to start a new career, or step into a leadership role. They are often mystified as to how they can do this so easily for others and not for themselves.

Mutual reception alien patterns
This is fairly rare, but in the interests of accuracy this pattern occurs when there is mutual reception between the Sun, Moon or ASC/1st House and one of the outer planets.

How to Find Alien Patterns in the Natal Chart

I’m using Steinbrecher’s orbs (degrees from exact conjunction) as I’ve found them to be pretty reliable.

Power alien patterns

You have a power alien pattern when your natal Sun is conjunct natal Saturn, Uranus, Neptune or Pluto with an orb of ≤ 15°.

Donald Trump: Has a Uranian Power pattern. Uranus is conjunct the Sun with an orb of 5°.

Donald Trump. June 14, 1946, 10:54 am, Jamaica, Queens, NY.

 

Vessel alien patterns

You have a vessel alien pattern when your natal Moon is conjunct Saturn, Uranus, Neptune or Pluto with an orb of ≤ 12°.

Drew Barrymore has a Saturnian Vessel pattern. The Moon is conjunct Saturn with an orb of < 6°

Drew Barrymore. February 22, 1975, 11:51 am, Culver City, CA.

Instrument alien patterns

You have an instrument alien pattern when Saturn, Uranus, Neptune or Pluto is in the 1st House or conjunct the Ascendant in the 12th House with an orb of ≤ 10°.

Kurt Cobain: Has two instrument patterns, Uranian and Plutonian. Uranus is in the 1st House. Pluto is conjunct the ASC from the 12th House with an orb of < 1°.

Kurt Cobain natal chart - Pluto-Uranus instrument alien pattern.

Kurt Cobain. February 20, 1967, 7:20 pm, Aberdeen, WA.

Jack Nicholson: Has a Pluto instrument pattern. Even though Pluto is in Cancer and Jack’s ASC is in Leo, Pluto is conjunct the ASC with an orb of 9°.

Jack Nicholson natal chart, Pluto instrument alien pattern.

Jack Nicholson. April 22, 1937, 11:20 am, Neptune, NJ.

Whitney Houston: Does not have a Saturn alien pattern, since the orb from Saturn to the ASC is greater than 10°.

Whitney Houston, August 9, 1963, 8:55 pm, Newark, NJ

Mutual Reception alien patterns

You have a mutual reception alien pattern when the Sun, Moon, or ASC are in mutual reception with Saturn, Uranus, Neptune or Pluto. See David Bowie’s chart below.

*I normally work with the traditional sign rulers as the primary rulers and incorporate the modern sign rulers when helpful. In this context, however, I follow Steinbrecher in working with Uranus as the ruler of Aquarius, Neptune as the ruler of Pisces, and Pluto as the ruler of Scorpio.

David Bowie: Has a Saturnian Vessel pattern and likely a Plutonian Vessel pattern (his birth time is uncertain). He also has a mutual reception Saturn Power pattern. The Sun is in Capricorn (Saturn’s sign) while Saturn is in Leo (the Sun’s sign).

Pisces New Moon + Erin Aquarian Interview

Bringing Heaven to Earth

When you think of Pisces, “real world” is probably not the first phrase that comes to mind. Pisces is all about feeling, imagining, and dreaming – the stuff that music, movies, and visual art are made of.

But the Pisces New Moon (4 Pisces 29) that arrives on Sunday, February 23 at 10:32 am EST makes strong positive connections to Mars in Capricorn and Uranus in Taurus, two action planets in Earth signs.

Appropriately, the Omega symbol for the New Moon degree talks about bringing heaven down to earth. The Omega symbol indicates we can improve upon reality by using our imagination to visualize and connect with better potentials; by grounding ourselves to the Earth, we then channel these higher cosmic energies into material reality.

Phoenix and I talk more about the astrology of the Pisces lunar cycle (and how Mercury Retrograde in Pisces is affecting things) on Episode 2 of the Cosmic Fire Podcast.

Healing Trauma with the Tarot

Plus, radical visionary artist and full-time witch Erin Aquarian joins us to talk about her twelve-year journey with the Tarot. Like so many of us, Erin woke up in adulthood to realize that she wasn’t who she thought she was.

Erin talks about how the Tarot helped her deal with a legacy of trauma that she inherited both from her family of origin and from the systemic abuse rampant in our society for many centuries.

She talks about how the Tarot archetypes gave her the wisdom and guidance her elders couldn’t give, and how the Tarot continues to support her creativity and her personal mastery work.

Leo Full Moon + Brand New Podcast

Reclaiming Our Inner Divinity

Hey! I wanted to let you know that I have a brand new podcast. In Episode 1, Phoenix and I explain why we’re using “code names” for the new project, talk about how those of us on the front lines of the spiritual-and-creative “Pleasure Revolution” have been facing so much resistance (including crazy tech issues) and look at why it’s so important to claim our inner royalty in these times.

Here’s a one-minute excerpt or listen to the full episode here:


CosmiC, Fire & You

(My college roommate came from a Greek family in Detroit. He had this ratty old t-shirt that read: “Gyros, Saganaki + You”)

As mentioned in the previous post, I’m going to continue to host my astrology readings and personal coaching pages here at dkbrainard.com. But cosmicfire.org is going to be the new home for a lot of my blog writing, astrology writing and videos, podcasts, and more.

We are building an awesome community of artists, healers, entrepreneurs, and visionaries. A lot of the blog and video content as well as the podcast are free for everyone, so check it out. And, if you’re ready to help take down the corrupt system of the world and replace predatory capitalism and “give a guy a badge” patriarchy with a reality that works for everyone….

Well, we’re looking for people like you to ride with us. We are a revolutionary movement of artistic mutants, compassionate businesswomen, take-no-prisoners healing arts practitioners, benevolent witches, tarot readers, astrologers, and dreamers with the audacity to believe that we really are the Ones that the world has been waiting for. Peace!

Cancer Lunar Eclipse Saturn-Pluto Conjunction Jan 10 2020

Reclaiming Our Power to Remake the World

The first eclipse of 2020 happens Friday, January 10 at 2:21 pm EST.

It’s a lunar eclipse with the Moon in Cancer and the Sun in Capricorn. This is an incredible stellium (several planets conjunct) in the sign of world systems. The Sun, Mercury, Ceres, Saturn, and Pluto plus centaur planet Chariklo are all conjunct within 4 1/4 degrees while Jupiter is tightly conjunct the karmic South Node.
 
The fact that it happens two days before the exact Saturn-Pluto conjunction adds to the power of this eclipse. Saturn and Pluto are conjunct every 34 years but this is the first time they’ve been conjunct in Capricorn (Saturn’s sign and the sign of world systems) since 1518. Here are some things that jump out at me about this eclipse. 
 

Goddess Power!

That’s a huge old stellium – a conjunction involving three or more planets – in Capricorn in the eclipse chart. What does that mean? Basically that almost all the planetary power is focused along the eclipse line of 20 Cancer – 20 Capricorn. Looks like a pretty black and white, cut and dried picture. Until you notice that the Sun, Mercury, Ceres, Saturn, Pluto and Chariklo and the eclipsed Moon are all square Eris, the archetype of the revolutionary feminine, at 23 Aries. This T-square funnels a huge amount of energy to Eris. (Saturn and Pluto square Eris by < 1 degree.)
 
Eris, the Goddess of Discord, introduces chaos into patriarchal, linear, status quo systems, agitating for a more egalitarian setup. It’s hard to overstate the power of the eclipse-Saturn-Pluto alignment, even without Eris in the picture. I feel like Eris’ presence as focal point for this alignment has radically amped up the destructive energy we’d expect to see.


In the build-up to the eclipse, we’ve seen the Trump and Tehran flirt with starting World War III, the mind-boggling wildfires in Australia, the start of the Harvey Weinstein trial in Los Angeles (remember #MeToo ?) and devastating earthquakes in Puerto Rico, a country that still hasn’t recovered from Hurricane Maria.
 
There’s a very pronounced emphasis on society’s treatment of women, children and the ecology in this picture, with Ceres conjunct Saturn and Pluto by < 1 degree. Ceres was active in the eclipse charts for 2017, when the news of the many women allegedly molested by Harvey Weinstein launched the #MeToo movement. As well as being the mother of Persephone, Ceres/Demeter is the goddess of the harvest. You may remember that in some versions of the myth, she cursed the natural world and stopped the plants from bearing fruit as a way of getting Jupiter’s attention and getting her kidnapped daughter back from Pluto.
 
There are a lot of interesting connections from this eclipse and the Saturn-Pluto conjunction to the USA’s chart, which I will tackle in more depth in a future video. I saw several news articles pop up on Apple News mentioning that several awards recipients and/or presenters at the Golden Globes had used their screen time to advocate for women’s rights and the environment. This makes a lot of sense in light of Ceres’ placement in the eclipse chart. And that whole Capricorn stellium is opposite the USA’s Mercury (what we think and communicate about as a society).
 
In case you missed it, Tatiana and I did an Instagram Live on the eclipse Wednesday night. I’ve edited the live stream into two shorter videos. The first (see above) focuses on how this energy is affecting us personally and what we can do to feel better and align ourselves with its transformational power. The second eclipse looks at the big picture and why this is such a revolutionary moment:

Winter Solstice 2019

Looking Within to See the Future

Winter Solstice 2019 – The Sun enters Capricorn at 11:20 pm EST on Saturday, December 21, marking the moment in the Northern Hemisphere when the night is longest and the day is shortest.

Traditionally, the solstice is celebrated by candle light, honoring both the rejuvenating darkness of the void and the impending return of the life-giving Sun. Moving forward, the days will begin to grow ever-so-slightly longer, until (we hope) spring eventually comes again in all its abundance.

With five planets - including Saturn conjunct Pluto - two centaurs, and the South Node in Capricorn, this solstice is packed with transformational power.

With five planets – including Saturn conjunct Pluto – two centaurs, and the South Node in Capricorn, this solstice is packed with transformational power.

The astrology of the 2019 Winter Solstice emphasizes the power of getting quiet, letting go, and going within to find wisdom and strength. This year’s solstice happens with the waning Moon in Scorpio, just a few days before the last New Moon of the decade, a Capricorn solar eclipse on December 25/26.

Water sign Scorpio is willing to plunge into the darkest depths of the soul. Scorpio knows that the key to power in the external world is found in the shadows. Scorpio knows that we can only become the powerful creators we were born to be when we are willing to face our un-healed trauma, our deepest fears, and the parts of the Self we were taught to be ashamed of and to hide from ourselves and others.

Solar eclipses are also powerful times of letting go. This eclipse comes with some very fortunate aspects. The Sun and Moon are conjunct benefic Jupiter and trine Uranus, the Awakener, in Taurus, the sign of the Earth. So we really want to use this moment to look within and let go of roles, beliefs, and identities we have outgrown as we step into the unknown potential of a new decade.

John Sandbach’s Chandra symbol for the first degree of Capricorn is “A canopy bed with curtains.”

“This symbol signifies a private place in which to dream and retreat from the world,” Sandbach writes. “It may seem like a strangely introverted symbol for such a social and gregarious sign as Capricorn, but the fact is that unless this very private inward place is established as a base there can be no effective operating out in the world.”

On her Edge Magazine 2020 preview radio show, Cathryn Taylor and I talked about the fear factor in the collective psyche right now. Beneath the heavy gravity of January’s epic Saturn-Pluto conjunction, the old patriarchal structures are visibly crumbling and cracking.

When the entire world is transforming at this accelerated pace, the only security we have — really the only security we have ever had or can ever have — comes from our connection to the Divine within ourselves…and from being part of a community of like-hearted souls.

I believe this Winter Solstice is designed to help us go within and find our resolve to break free of old 3D baggage and live the lives we came here to live. Even if you don’t normally celebrate the old Nature holidays, I encourage you to do a little ritual on Saturday evening.

Centaur planet Pholus, a patron saint of ritual, is conjunct the Sun at the solstice. Pholus bridges the orbits of Neptune and Saturn, opening a link that can help us ground some of our most beautiful visions of the future into the world of 3D reality.

This next-level 5D energy (a quality of all the centaurs and TNOs) is further emphasized by centaur Chariklo’s tight conjunction with Saturn and Pluto. Chariklo was a powerful healer, and also the wife of Chiron and mother of Tiresias, the blind hermaphroditic prophet who appears in both Homer’s Odyssey and T.S. Eliot’s The Waste Land.

Chariklo brings the ability to “see” the unseen, that which exists in quantum potentiality but must be named in order to become part of this reality.

We are the ones who can ground those potentials, here and now, and change our reality.

How Doing What You Love Saves the World

Jupiter Conjunct the Galactic Center

The Naked Songwriter Podcast #54

Dear fellow weirdo:

Your life purpose was never about trying to contort, stuff and cram yourself into one of society’s little boxes.

Doing what you love saves the world

With my beloved by the ocean, rainbows over water, making music with my friends.

You’re an alien.

You’re a galactic adventurer, a starseed, an evolutionary outlier.

You’re a mutant, a freak, a warrior, a savior.

You came here to do your thing as passionately and as fully as possible.

You came here to bring beauty, not to share in the pain of those poor souls who have contracted to stay in the old 3D reality.

Now is the time when it’s really helpful to be clear on this.

Live Heroically – Do What You Love

Boldness + Creativity = How We Change the World

A couple centuries before scientists realized that reality is a mass hallucination, William Blake claimed that everything is Imagination. Blake saw human beings as occupying a unique position in the cosmos, as we have – or could have – the freedom to apply our imagination to whatever we choose.

7 of Poetry - Blake TarotAs Mercury was stationing to return to direct motion (Wednesday, 11/20, 2:12 pm EST), I did a little tarot spread  from the William Blake Tarot of the Creative Imagination. The first card I drew was the 7 of Poetry – Boldness.

In addition to being a prolific and innovative artist, Blake was an iconoclastic visionary who prefigured the psychological universe we all inhabit today. He was ahead of his time and probably is still ahead of our own time.

Here’s what Blake said about the artist’s responsibility to society:

The wretched state of the arts…demands a firm & determinate conduct on the part of artists to resist the contemptible counter arts established by…politicians…

Ed Buryn, creator of the Blake Tarot, writes about the 7 of Poetry: “This card urges you to face your fears and live heroically…You can do your duty to life — countering fears and mortality itself — by doing what you love, upholding truth, and encouraging others in the same bold path.”

I love this last sentence:

“You can do your duty to life by doing what what you love, upholding truth, and encouraging others in the same bold path.”

The Perverted Modern Imagination

If imagination is the only thing that truly exists, then we can re-create the world by imagining it differently.

This is, of course, what real artists do: they show us the world as it exists in their imagination.

But we live in a time where imagination has been degraded. Most people’s imaginations were crippled early on by family-of-origin trauma, driven underground by the patriarchal dogmas of the family religion, and perverted through long years of school – where the curriculum is designed to teach kids how to shut up, sit still, and become obedient servants of the ruling classes.

In adulthood, any remaining sparks of imagination must compete with the relentless barrage of images most people consume daily on television, the Internet, and social media.

Ascension: We are the Neural Network of Mother Earth

A colleague proposed to me recently that humans are kind of like Mother Earth’s brain. She had a vision in which she saw that Mother Earth’s consciousness has been semi-dormant for centuries.

Now our living, conscious planet is awakening again. She longs  to evolve beyond her current state of depletion (chemical warfare, devastation of the forests and oceans, constant war, poverty, abuse, etc.).

This feels like a helpful metaphor to me.

As the physical inhabitants of the planet with the capacity to change reality, we are in a unique position to help Mother Earth return to her true state as a Garden Paradise.

But how can we imagine a better reality when we are still trying to “succeed” within a system that hates the imagination? How can we imagine a better reality when we are so tired and stressed and sad from trying to make ourselves fit into a job, a relationship, a family that will never work for us?

If we are the brain cells that Mother Earth needs in order to renew herself, how can she ascend when we have grown weak and dull and complacent? Choosing to argue within ourselves and complain about the sad state of the Brain, rather than doing what we were made to do?

Blake saw that our duty was to be ourselves, to express our own uniqueness, and to do – to the best of our ability – those things that express our own Divine spark.

We didn’t incarnate here at this time to be obedient wage slaves. We didn’t come here to live out the bankrupt dreams of our parents’ generations. We didn’t come here to blindly follow society’s marching orders. We didn’t go through everything we had to endure to get to this point in our lives to say, “Well, the world is going to hell and there’s nothing that poor little me can do about it.”

We came here to re-create the world, plain and simple.

This is our duty, to our own eternal spirit and to this beautiful planet and her plants and animals who give us so much nourishment and abundance while asking so little of us in return.

The astrology of 2020 tells us we are heading into a hardcore cycle of death and rebirth in human society. If this isn’t obvious to you now, it will be apparent by early January  when we have a lunar eclipse in Cancer opposing the epochal Saturn-Pluto conjunction in Capricorn. The time to claim our divine right of liberty is now.
