"What has been hidden is revealed."
Today the world is reeling in the wake of Friday's devastating 8.9-magnitude earthquake and resulting tsunamis in Japan. Bone-chilling images of destruction plaster the media and Internet. An earthquake-related explosion rocked a nearby nuclear power plant earlier today. A partial meltdown is now possible in at least one of Japan's five nuclear reactors.
Meanwhile, a wave of revolution continues to spread through the Middle East.
Enormous batches of birds and fish have been dying suddenly all over the world, including millions of poisoned sardines found dead in a marina in southern California last week.
Oil from last year's disastrous leak in the Gulf of Mexico was recently discovered choking life at the bottom of the ocean.
Extreme weather and climate change are far too obvious to ignore.
How can you not sensationalize these events? Explanations and interpretations tend toward religious fervor, political or new age fanaticism.
What's really going on?
What's really going on?
I'd been inexplicably wracked with emotion from the moment I woke up at 5 a.m. Friday. When I finally turned on my laptop and saw the news, I understood why. I sobbed. The dreams I've had since childhood of devastating Earth changes were coming alive again. Tears washed away pain that was not mine.
I called my mother in Ohio. She had just heard from her brother, whose son - my cousin - is stationed at a U.S. Army base in Japan. He and his wife in Tokyo were okay. Untold others are not so fortunate.
Mom's words echoed what must be on the minds and in the hearts of anyone who's paying attention these days. "What is this, the Apocalypse?"
Although it has been taken to mean the end of the world through cataclysm, the word "apocalypse" is derived from Latin and Greek and means "what has been hidden is revealed" or "lifting of the veil."
Earth changes are a natural process of transformation that happens in cycles over vast periods of time. God isn't punishing anyone. Geologic, evolutionary forces are at work.
Massive changes occur over time, shaping the world the way we know it today. This is perfectly normal. Today, though, the human factor is the wild card. Never before have there been 7 billion people on the planet during such an intense round of changes.
Apocalyptic events tear holes in the fabric of our collective consciousness, allowing higher frequencies of spiritual energy to flood the Earth. In our current reality, waves of destruction, pain and suffering accompany the incoming frequencies.
If you're sensitive to energy fluctuations, you've probably been feeling tired or lethargic, restless, agitated, emotional or nervous. Maybe you've been experiencing unexplained aches and pains. Etherically, you're probably involved in the recent incidents in Japan and elsewhere around the world.
Beyond the tragedy and emotion, which are all very real, a message is trying to reach us through these events. We need to face facts and change our ways. Now.
As a species, we've taken an extreme gamble. Disaster by disaster, we're finding out just how high the stakes are.
For those interested in the astrology, it goes like this. The gas giant Uranus was hours away from entering Aries when the 8.9 earthquake struck Japan on Friday, triggering a deadly tsunami. Now chaotic Uranus is transiting the sign of the warrior and squaring Pluto, whose destructive energy transforms through annihilation.
In Capricorn, Pluto takes aim at so-called power structures like corporations, institutions and governments. As these planetary heavy hitters square off, the stage is set for sudden, violent transformation for years to come. The alignments won't even be exact until next year. An extended series of seven exact squares between Uranus and Pluto begins in 2012 and continues through 2015.
According to seismologists, even more Earth-shaking activity was happening in the 1960s than what we're experiencing today. Guess what was going on astrologically in the '60s? That was the last time Uranus and Pluto met up.
Because of the timing of their discovery, these outer planets are associated with uranium (Uranus) and plutonium (Pluto). Aries is fire. Capricorn is Earth. Add the acceleration of the Mayan Ninth Wave - which began two days before the cataclysm in Japan - and we've got rather a pressure cooker on our hands.
Given all that, a proliferation of nuclear reactors may not be the most evolved choice, especially when you put them in known seismic fault zones. Japan isn't alone in that practice. Did you know there are more than 190 nuclear facilities in North America? That includes a dozen in California, where a major earthquake is overdue. These are not just reactors. The count includes places where radioactive materials are processed and nuclear waste is stored.
Europe has 97 nuclear facilities in 17 countries, including 18 in the United Kingdom, 25 in France and 15 in Germany. In Asia, which encompasses much of the seismic Ring of Fire, there are 63 nuclear facilities. A breach at any of these could be devastating, to say the least.

Earth in balance
In the prophecy of the Hopi Indians of North America, the term Koyaanisqatsi means "life out of balance." Thirty years ago, a film by that name became a cult classic. Its message rings true today, especially in the aftermath of recent catastrophic events. Other films in the "Quatsi Trilogy" include "Powaqqatsi" (life in transformation) and "Naqoyqatsi" (life as war).
These riveting tone poems, set to exceptional musical scores, pose a question we should all be asking ourselves: Are we ready to wake up, stop the insanity and work together to find solutions?
I've written this before, and I'll repeat it here. We've reached a tipping point. The future of Earth and humanity hangs in the balance. The way things go depends on us.
Relief efforts and prayer are natural, and necessary, responses in times like these. However, until we address the deeper issues underlying the serious challenges we face today, we'll continue to be at risk. It's time to lift the veil and really look at what's out of balance in our world, figure out why and how we're going to fix it.
March 18-20, 2011
The next big portal occurs with the Virgo-Pisces Full Moon on Friday night into Saturday, March 18/19, followed by the Equinox on March 20. On this day of equal parts darkness and light, we have a supreme opportunity to step into our power, align with a higher destiny and help shape the future for generations to come.
Individual prayer and meditation focusing on balance will be potent throughout this gateway. Joining with others for meditation and ritual will amplify the effects exponentially. Align with your soul, the Earth and the cosmos as you breathe, together, in silence.
You're also invited to join in a special teleconference I'll be hosting directly on the March 20 Equinox alignment. We'll give the dates of upcoming critical alignments, share ideas and practices for being with the ramped-up evolutionary energies of the Mayan Ninth Wave, and fuse our intent with the incoming cosmic frequencies through a special group co-creation and Equinox celebration just as the Sun crosses into Aries. Details are posted on my website here: http://www.starpriestess.com/events.html#balance
Many others will be having Equinox gatherings as well. Joining together in circle is a positive, co-creative step in shifting the energy and restoring balance on Earth. It's time to get involved.
We live in a transition period between world ages. Prophecies of spiritual traditions around the world speak of these times as a period of purification, a cleansing of humanity and the Earth in preparation for a new beginning.
Spiritually and scientifically, a quantum leap out of darkness is possible, but not guaranteed. It's time to step up and co-create the future of life on Earth.
This is much better on the big screen, but if you must watch YouTube:
