Water Water Water at the New Moon in Cancer July 8,2013

Well the floodgates of human emotion have been opened wide with this new moon & this month's Grand Trine in the Water Signs: Jupiter in Cancer, Saturn in Scorpio & Neptune in Pisces...( with the addition of Mars at the 5th degree of Cancer July 19,20 &21)
As I write this blog tonight, the environ of Toronto is experiencing a flash flood, Calgarians are still a tad waterlogged & my domeside glacial creek is a majestic polyphonic cascade of macro & micro waterfalls... I hear there is some bickering going on in Africa regarding the Nile River water-rights! And the tears of the people of Egypt could create a salt water lake in the desert tonight as I write... In Feb. 2012 I ventured out in the Sinai to visit a monk whom I have known for some years at the St. Catherines Monastery. The Egyptian Government & my tour operator had vetoed my stay there ( & a visit to Serabit el Hhadim as well) however my daytrip was heart-warming. My old friend, Father Justin suggested that Egyptians perhaps had something to learn from all the Russian tourists that were snorkling like human submarines  & smoking up a storm at Sharm el Sheikh. When I asked "what", he smiled & suggested that a Revolution takes a lot longer than a day, a week or a month to transpire.... My home is graced with photos, poofs & small treasures from Egypt &  I pray with all my heart that Ma'at, cosmic harmony, returns to guide the destiny of the people in the land of Mitzriyeem. A recent guest at the Crystal Dome was ranting about the  neurological dangers of those not-so-smart-meters & reminded me of the beautiful work of Ibrahim Karim, founder of Biogeometry. I believe he is living now in Canada near Montreal.
 Go ahead, just google him!

Here is a little poem from 
Aleph 2160: A Zodiac Oracle 
for the degree of this new moon:

We are wilderness children  
belly-dancing  our sinuous Hathor rhythms
Round a golden calf  
mirage  remember the anger of Moshe
As our eyes withstood  
the Sinai vision then  
when we are ready
The temple is destroyed 
Let us surrender  
all images & versions
Of the Story  
all our amulets & talismans   
fetishes & chutchkas
Attachments & expectations  
to whatever  veils us from the truth....

OK, back to that Grand Trine. Jupiter ( & Mars as of July 14th) in Cancer should offer: a healing of the heart & a summer full of good music & extended tribal family gatherings. Saturn in Scorpio is a tap on the karmic shoulder from the Karma Lords... And a transmission on how exactly to let go of our attachments. A  scuba diving journey to underwater Asclepions.... Neptune in Pisces offers us a chance at dissolving karmic patterns that have been holding us hostage...( both personal & collective).

The guiding star this month is Sirius, presently in the duat, hidden from view , but preparing to rise with Sun & inundate the Nile. With the wisdom & compassion of Aset (aka Isis) at a time when our world needs it the most...

Asalem aleikum... Om shalom....
