Kaypacha’s Astrology for the Soul, June 21, 2017


Wow, this month has simply flown by! Just posted last week’s without a summary, but I did take notes – am keeping this collection of reports on my blog because it speaks to my heart and soul, helps me understand what’s going on in the world and why I feel the way I feel. Lots of healing going on in my life right now, along with lots of change. Hatha yoga is helping transform my body, and now my teacher is coming twice a week, and it was his idea! Working with the crystals during massages now for those who are open to it – I have them in the room in grid shape for every single person, though, and they work even when you’re not holding them. I am in my element with all these planets in Cancer, being a Moonmaiden and all.

This week, Tom talks to us from a beautiful location in British Columbia, with rainbow rays of light illuminating the nature shots at first. We just had Summer Solstice and the Sun has moved into Cancer and now Mercury has joined. The moon is in Gemini, but she moves on into Cancer tomorrow at 2 degrees, 47 minutes of Cancer. Venus is in her element in Taurus, for she rules Taurus, earth sign, and trine Pluto in Capricorn. Coming around to the Sun, Mercury, Moon conjunction – and Mars is also in Cancer. These aspects are taking us down, a long way down into our feelings, into our emotions.

Mars will be squaring Jupiter on Saturday, actively expanding, and the moon will conjunct Mars Saturday also. That Mars is square Jupiter because it is also trine Neptune – Jupiter quincunx Neptune, so whenever something comes into square Jupiter it will also trine Neptune – a fascinating aspect.

Next week Mars will oppose Pluto, which we may be feeling already, but all in all, this is a very nice week.

We are talking about feelings, love, intimacy, emotional security. The New Moon in Cancer will set the tone for the whole month. Mercury will be traveling with Mars in Cancer through this whole month as well. And Mars is like drilling deep inward, Mars in Cancer is twelve o’clock midnight. This is the darkest and deepest, most personal aspect of ourselves.

We each have an introvert – and Cancer brings that out – we want to be in our shells, stay in our beds and meditate and shut the world out. Pluto in Capricorn calls for physical security.

It’s time for us to come out of our center and out to work, while the new moon and Mars in Mercury make us want to stay in our inner world. Mars in Cancer is like the mother bear protecting her cubs. It’s like putting a bolt on the door and saying, “leave me alone, I’m meditating.” We may be feeling the call to clear our personal space to create the time and space for creating. This is a great time to get in touch with our imaginations and create time to be inspired, write those books, paint those paintings. Venus in Taurus is exalted. It leads us to look at the beauty of our inner world as well.

The North Node moved into Leo since May, which is about fun and play and really enjoying ourselves. The struggle here may be to remove some of these duties and create our own space and time (this hits me so personally). Saturn is square Chiron this whole year – Chiron brings us to the underworld. Cancer seeks emotional bonding, security, the need to be snuggled, held, protected, may bring back memories, because the moon is the past, so those times from our childhood may arise, and Mars in Cancer can bring up some of the bitter memories as well. Cancer can be clingy – those claws like to hold on – the need for the breast is what our inner child wants, who is not rational, not logical.

We have so much feminine energy with all these planets in Cancer and Neptune in Pisces. This is soft, open, vulnerable energy. This is a beautiful time for emotional connection, or sexual connection. This is a good time to get out in nature and really connect with the Mother and let go. Pluto in Capricorn says to let go and die to that external authority. That old idea that we must succeed before we get to take care of ourselves or rest – is no longer relevant.

This week’s mantra: When I am in my center, my innermost core, completely relaxed, needing no more, I connect with the Mother, who gave birth to it all, as in the silence I can hear her call.

He asks when was the last time we were in absolute silence, and recommends we seek the silence, for within it emerges the spirit call.

He is so in tune and beautiful today. This is definitely one of the best.

Namaste. Aloha. So Much Shhhhh.

Rainbow Blessings.

Kaypacha’s Astrology For The Soul, May 26, 2017


This week’s Pele Report comes to us from a beautiful solitary lake, filmed and uploaded on Wednesday, May 24, as the Moon was in Taurus and moving slowly towards the New Moon in Gemini yesterday, May 25. The Sun is in Gemini, opposite Black Moon Lilith who is in Sagittarius. Venus in Aries is in square to Pluto. Mars is opposite Saturn as well, creating lots of contradictions yet again.

As the Moon goes through Gemini she is going to trine Jupiter, square Neptune, sextile Venus, conjunct Mars, opposite Saturn, and sextile Uranus – big day today, Friday!

On Sunday, She is going into Cancer, and she will square Jupiter, trine Neptune, sextile Mercury, opposte Pluto, square Uranus – these huge aspects will have our emotional bodies activated and tweaked, so it’s important to be mindful.

Chiron is still in Pisces – all of these aspects related to living in the paradox and going through a time of chaos in many people’s lives.

The path of the soul is like a wave. The individual soul emerges like a wave out of the ocean. It individuates and separates – north node of the Moon in Leo contributes to this huge variety of infinite potentials – each of us unique flowers, blooming in our own individual way.

Kaypacha goes on to expound upon duality in this world and the fear of diversity which contributes to such a huge amount of the conflict today. So even if we feel separate or outside of the unity of oneness, we go beyond the ego, the wave crashes, and the drop of water returns to the ocean of oneness.

Reincarnation gives us opportunity after opportunity to go through this individuation process and return to oneness. We come out of the black nothingness (absence of color) in the void – and travel towards the white light of oneness (white being the combination of all colors). He proceeds with an analogy of our differences and how we label ourselves using colors – I am yellow and you are blue but I want everyone to be yellow like me. It is this line of reasoning which leads to all wars.

Just as Jonathon Livingston Seagull breaks away from the flock, we need the contrast to see why we are different. It is because of this we have different religions, different political groups, belief systems, cultures (just what my poem Paradoxes is about). It is time to celebrate our diversity, for we are moving beyond duality as we enter the Age of Aquarius – and an age lasts two thousand years! We are moving into a time of love and compassion, but it takes many lifetimes.

I am simplifying here, BTW. Gemini with the left brain tries to take Pisces and Sagittarius and limit them. Venus square Pluto is coming up to join Eres, Goddess of Discord. Where would we be without discord? Even Eres throws an apple between the three goddesses – Aphrodite, Athena and Hera, and says, “For the fairest.” This creates so much discord and jealousy, for each of them wishes to be the one. And Lilith, as a serpent, brought the apple to Eve in order to experience discord. This all a necessary part of the revolutionary process. It does not need to result in violence, but instead can lead towards loving compassion and unity.

It’s important to not be pulled into polarity but stay in that truth, that beautiful place where we are true to ourselves. Love goes beyond polarity and leads us to the peace which passes understanding and accepting of all the craziness going on. The younger souls are trying to find themselves through the most extreme methods.

This week’s mantra: My deepest true identity is emerging from within. No longer defined by right or wrong, incapable of sin.

Sin has its Latin roots in error (a theology professor back in college explained it as falling short of our divine potential).

We are all moving out of this place of sin and will ultimately realize that each of us is here for a reason, there doesn’t have to be a right or wrong way to be – this is the New Paradigm. And as this is such a lengthy process, have mercy on yourselves! And our grandchildren will inherit the planet we plant the seeds for now, and they will know a world of peace.

Kaypacha’s farewell: May you find your true colors. Namaste. Aloha. So. Much. Love.

Kamea’s farewell: Rainbow Blessings. A’ho Mitakuye Oyason.

Kaypacha’s Astrology for the Soul, April 26, 2017


This week’s Pele Report fell directly on the New Moon in Taurus, which is all about being in the body, listening to the body, honoring our senses, honoring Gaia, our mother, for we are intrinsically interconnected. Tom takes us through a beautiful bit of jungle as he talks at us, which is such an excellent locale for his style of sharing astrological wisdom with the world.

Mercury still has one more week retrograde, and conjunct Uranus and also opposite Eres, the goddess of discord, which he passed by back on March 29 and then made a U-turn and decided to hang out with her again. Eres only passes by every 526 years, so she moves quite slowly. Jupiter is opposing this Eres energy at this moment, while Saturn conjunct the galactic center is square. Because apparently we needed more discord. Which basically amounts to more of us waking up.

Today, Thursday, the Moon moves on into Gemini, Saturday into Cancer, and then Monday it will be Leo. Luckily, Venus will move back out of Pisces Friday which will help her lighten up as she goes direct and back into Aries, pulling her away from that square with Saturn. We will be able to see her in the morning sky now, and she will help energize all of us, in particular with relationships, personal and inter-personal. This has to do with dark feminine forces arising and rectifying the overwhelming and dying patriarchal paradigm with all its corruption, greed, and war.

We are each feeling this individually, while we are all feeling this collectively. New Moon in Taurus is rather heavy, a feeling which will emanate through the rest of this month.

Uranus coming around to Eres with Jupiter opposite brings us self knowledge, self revelation and all sorts of change and lots of examination of our relationships. Eres comes out of the void and gives birth to strife, toil, forgetfulness, starvation, pain, battle, murder, manslaughter, quarrel, lies, dispute, lawlessness, ruin and her youngest child is oath, which can be the most damaging of all of Eres’ damaging children if anyone takes a false oath. We must stand up for truth and against lawlessness and for strength and healing, unity and harmony and not discord.

Discord at any level brings up lack of trust, hidden lies, and with break downs in trust and each of us looking after ourselves we will ask for proof of things. And during this time of “alternative facts” we are living in doubting times. Yet all that was hidden will be revealed. We are getting to the root of these issues, exposing reality and getting to the end of lies and the end of deception. This is not always a pretty picture! It can take some confrontation, some irritation to uncover the layers of denial.

Kaypacha gives us this week’s mantra from a “we” perspective instead of an “i” perspective because it’s truly time for us to get together and talk about solutions, with and through each other as mirrors of our unconscious. We get in touch with our shadow through the other. The foundation of peace and harmony is truth, so each of us need to stand in our truth and share this with others, because without this there can’t be any peace.

Mantra: There is a light at the end of the tunnel.
It’s there for all to see,
calling us all together
from discord into harmony.

Kaypacha’s farewell: Namaste. Aloha. Take it easy, don’t forget to breathe.

Kamea’s farewell: Rainbow Blessings of Love and Light. A’ho Mitakuye Oyasin.

Kaypacha’s Astrology for the Soul, March 29, 2017


This week Tom gifts us with the Pele Report from his back yard. We are at a peak point of intensity cosmically. He starts off with a wonderful overview of the past year which is a little bit too complex for my own modest understandings, so I am leaving out the degrees.

For the most part, Jupiter in Libra is retrograde, and Venus about to go retrograde Sunday and then move back into Pisces, where she is square Saturn and conjunct Chiron again, where she stations. Time to get deeply in touch with our woundings, Chiron. Those deepest of deep wounds which we have stuffed, covered and denied, and it is this which holds us back again and again and again until we get the lesson. Saturn is about to go retrograde and so is Mercury on April 9, yikes!

Jupiter is square Pluto again is part of this intensity – and still in opposition to Uranus, making everything feel fast and sharp, questioning our power, like we’re getting squeezed to get out all that is not true, all that is not us. Saturn conjunct the galactic center – defragmenting our hard disc, involves letting go of the familiar. Phillip Sedgwick talks about the galactic center – ‘the psyche can very often mistake the familiar with the good.’ This is why men marry their mothers and women marry their fathers – we repeat these patterns because it’s familiar.

Saturn in Sagittarius is the root chakra – survival, life and death – when he hits the galactic center we are all feeling pressure, the old patterns, old beliefs, the old karmic stuff from lifetimes.

In our loving relationships we seek to reinvent our childhoods.

With all these planets in retrograde it’s time to reflect, remember, release. The Universe, Galactic Center, is shaking our foundation. Is our home built on sand, or are there solid cornerstones in our personal truths?

Illusions are based on experiences. The way we look at our core beliefs and challenge them requires radical self honesty.

Time to admit that I can be wrong about what I used to say or feel, I am human and make mistakes. I can change my mind.

This is the year of the end of illusion and it is time to let go of those illusions.
April is the pivotal point of this cosmic alignment. During this period, other people may reflect a lot of shadow at us, calling us to rise, to know ourselves and get real. Freudian slips and unconscious beliefs may influence our personality with the risk of pulling us into being stuck in the past and not evolving. Our relationships from past lifetimes will emerge and call us out to be real.

We have to see our realities as they are. This is NOT A TIME TO GAMBLE OR TAKE RISKS.

We must back up, check it out and clean it out. Grow up and take responsibility for our own personal happiness and well being. Centering the masculine and feminine, we go in and look at our karma and the sabian symbol for Venus conjunct Chiron is the harvest moon – a harvesting of the seeds we have sown, cultivated, watered and protected, or what we have not sown or not cultivated. As you sow, so shall you reap.

If we’ve been under illusions, lying, or out of integrity, this is a time that may backfire. We are all under this pressure and questioning ourselves, projecting it out, may back ourselves into a corner.

Guess that’s what my 13 year old grandson did last night. Conscious, unconscious or not, we are getting smacked. Saturn has to do with 3D reality, and Venus retrograde squaring it increases this pressure.

Keep breathing, folks! I throw a thought in here or there, and this is just a tiny bit of what Kaypacha has to say, remember to come from a place of centeredness and calm. He knows exactly how to advise us, and that helps so much.

This week’s mantra: In order to go forward, I need to take a step back, and clean up all my karma, so I can get on track.

Kaypacha’s Pele Report, March 22, 2017


Here he is, Kaypacha with the Pele Report, Astrology for the Soul for March 22, 2017. He tells us Happy Sun in Aries, Happy Venus in Aries, Happy Mercury in Aries, Happy Uranus in Aries, Happy New Moon in Aries (Monday evening at 7:37 p.m. WOW).

Some of the most interesting aspects include Venus conjunct the Sun – he says She is connecting with the cosmic source – it’s like a New Moon, only Venus is the Moon. you can draw a line from the earth through the Sun. Awesome and very powerful. The sabian symbol for this aspect is a triangle with wings. Of course She is still retrograde until April 15, adding to this energy.

Jupiter is square Pluto, Mercury conjunct Uranus coming up on Sunday – that’s a big day. Right now Moon is in Aquarius, which may have us feeling a little quirky. She goes into Pisces on Saturday and then of course Monday is the very big day. Kaypacha reminds us to keep our swords in our sheaths and do our best not to get hurt.

This is the time of the warrior, the wild woman – Aries is a very masculine sign, so what we need here is to learn how to control the masculine energy, This is wrapped around the desire to challenge life, to face danger, to conquer, to expand, to penetrate into the unknown – the old courageous brave warrior of Aries. He says his wife was bringing up the selfishness involved in this – because we can become quite engrossed with all this.

The New Moon is setting the tone for the whole next month – we are in for some intensity, folks. Warriors do create the wars.

Jupiter in a square can be too much – the danger can be over-extending, over-speaking, over-confidence, overdoing in every single realm of life. Pluto in Capricorn has to do with work, keeping us all very busy, Jupiter has to do with relationships, and feeling secure in them, but all this Aries energy has to do with feeling independent and not wanting to be in relationship, so many of us may feel torn during these tumultuous times.

Mars in Taurus has us wanting to focus on material gains, our income, our homes and possessions. Jupiter is also opposite Uranus, while Saturn in Sagittarius adds quite a bit to the fiery alignment of our planets.

Tom says all this and so much more – and he is giving a live webinar on Friday, the 24th – there’s a link below this video where you can sign up – I did!

Me with my rising sign in Aries, Sun sign in Cancer and Moon sign in Pisces, am feeling particularly vulnerable and also quite confused at times, but at other times very very clear, like a diamond, crazy diamond – all the pressure over the years has done a great job of helping with this transformation – not all the way there but definitely on my way. We all are, even those who seem to be perhaps heading in the opposite direction.

This week’s mantra has to do with diamonds, because diamonds are the hardest material which exists, yet it is also the most clear. As clear as clean water, everybody loves diamonds. And we all need water to survive.

Balancing this masculine energy with emotional awareness and conscious awareness of our impact on the other is essential right now. Let’s be conscious of our impact on Gaia, and do our best to reduce and minimize our carbon footprint. (Let’s go green and shut down the pipelines).

This week’s mantra: Both diamonds and a drop of water are beautiful, bright, and clear, and though diamonds may make me rich, I need water more this year.

As he wraps up his report, he cautions us against becoming too cool or self involved as we enter the Aquarian Age, because then we won’t be capable of intimate relationships and the human race could die off – although this is only happening in first world countries, but nonetheless.

He lives in a permaculture community – I wish to do the same some day! Setting the intention for manifesting this in my life. Om Shanti.

Kaypacha blesses us with his astrological wisdom and says Namaste. Aloha. So. Much. Love.

Rainbow Blessings, my friends. I love you all!

Kaypacha’s Astrology for the Soul, January 25, 2017


This week Tom is in Punta Muna, a lovely beach about a six hour drive from his home in Costa Rica. He begins this report by reminding us that Jupiter is still opposite Uranus but holding strong in Libra (where it will remain until next Fall).

There is so much going on, folks! Mars and Venus are still in Pisces conjunct Chiron, but Mars is moving on into powerful and fiery Aries tomorrow, when we will celebrate the New Moon in crazy, wild, rebellious Aquarius.

Right now we have a Pluto/Mercury/Moon conjunction in Capricorn. Pluto is the god of the underworld and rules the kundalini, death and transformation of the soul. Mercury was the only god on Mount Olympus who can go into the underworld and emerge again alive. Mercury is the ego, the left brain, linear, logical messenger.

We can feel overwhelmed, like we are being killed, as if we are at the end of our strategy, the end of control. Surrender mode will help us get through this.

Pisces and Mars are still in Pisces, along with Neptune, the dark side of which has to do with feeling sleepy, helpless and confused, and like what in the blazes is going on? The light side of this is that Pisces is about community, about forgiveness, is infinite, selfless, soul, spirit and nature.

Mercury is also going direct, which will open up the blocked lines of communication.

Kaypacha reminds us of ancient Toltec wisdom – the Four Agreements:

(I don’t have the book on hand and am doing my best to do this speedily as I am visiting family right now, so these are from memory and most likely not in order, but I sure did love that book and I adore the work of Jose Arguelles).

1. Be impeccable with your words.
2. Always do your best.
3. Never take anything personally.
4. Don’t assume anything.

It’s time to dig our roots deep into the earth and spread them out, and become solid and grounded like a Seqoyah tree. Remember this too shall pass and know that the new paradigm is underway. Things may seem extremely crazy, but underneath it all, magic is brewing.

Kaypacha is working on a video which will explain what is going on astrologically the next 4-5 years, so it would be a good idea for us to watch this.

During such intense times, it certainly is wonderful to have such a great astrologer giving us all this report every week to help us understand what is happening and how to handle it, and how to prepare for the future.

I love typing up this summary in order to remember the key points of the report and have them here in my blog. I highly encourage everyone to take the time to watch him when you have the time – I usually watch it twice because I enjoy watching it with at least one other loved one after I have posted this summary.

And check out the New Paradigm community, where the Dream Team astrologers are there with their many talents and the archives filled with astrological wisdom of all type, not to mention videos of Kaypacha teaching kundalini yoga, his video of 2017 and lots of other goodies. And it only costs $15 a month!

This week’s mantra is: When it gets so intense I can’t take anymore, and there’s simply no way out, I see my truth and must fine a new source of strength and love in my heart.

We are breaking out of thousands of years of patterns – and the longer a pattern is in place, the more energy is required to break out of it.

I am in Los Angeles again – went to Fresno last week – connecting with my family of origin is an incredibly wonderful healing experience and I am enjoying this tremendously. So many memories are arising as I peel many layers of dysfunction. Had the blessing of going to the Lakeside Shrine, which was founded by one of my favorite yogis – Paramahansa Yogananda. Meditated in the chapel with two of my siblings and am feeling extremely connected to Jesus, Gandhi, Babaji, Lahiri Mahasaya, Mother Mary, Krishna and my heart is wide wide open. I never expected to be here, so my mind is also blown. This is some great juju here!

Amazing times. Remember to stay centered in Love and Light – everything will be alright, but we are going through some crazy sh*&* first, that is for sure.

Kaypacha: Namaste. Aloha. So. Much. Love.

Kami: Rainbow Blessings. Om namaha shivaya. I love you all.

Kaypacha’s Pele Report for January 5, 2017


Hello, my friends! It looks by the picturesque landscape that Tom is home in Costa Rica, plus he hasn’t mentioned being anywhere else, so that makes sense. We are right at the waxing half-moon and She is in Aries right now – wanting to plunge forward on projects and other things. Remember it’s easy to get a bit irritated when the Moon is in Aries (at least in my family when the kids were younger). She moves in Taurus on Saturday and part of Sunday, then Gemini until Tuesday, when Cancer comes on the scene, just in time for the Full Moon in Cancer! Yay!

Right now, with the Moon in Aries, She is conjunct Uranus and tomorrow will be in a first quarter square with the Sun, which is conjunct Pluto in Capricorn. The Moon is opposite Jupiter in Libra right now, and Sunday, Mercury finally goes direct! I am happy about that.

Venus is moving into Pisces, where She will be conjunct the South Node of the Moon on Friday and is conjunct Neptune and Mars and Chiron – it’s a peaceful meditation party over in Pisces right now, folks, These are uncertain and unstable times, and there will be a lot of rising and falling of so many aspects of society. Right now we are seeing the fall of the patriarchy. Soon we will see the rise of egalitarianism.

Tom cautions us against seeking fulfillment through the temporary – like drugs, sex, food, spending money – just a few of the many ways people seek instant gratification. For we need to build roots. Each of us needs to love ourselves enough to allow ourselves the space to be healthy, to be abundant, and to live the lives we have always dreamed of living.

The patriarchy has created hundreds of thousands of jobs requiring people to sit in tiny little cubicles all day long – the compartmentalization of humanity. Because of this, the feminine energy has gone underground, but she is rising and will destroy that which separates.

The feminine in each of us seeks connection, the male in each of us seeks freedom, and it is Love that pulls all of us together in connection and freedom.

Saturn in Sagittarius helps us out by requiring that we grow up now. Sagittarius is also Nature, so it makes a lot of sense that movements like that at the Standing Rock Sioux Reservation are rising up all over the planet. We have to think seriously about what our actions today are doing to the planet. Every thought, word, or deed we each contribute to the collective is part of what makes up this giant cosmic soup of free will.

This is a time when personal ambitions can just go away because it’s time for us to all stand together and make sure our goals lead to the greater good. Teachers are springing up all over the place to help bring along the whole collective. For we are ALL ascending, and we all know something is going on.

Something is happening here and you don’t know what it is, do you, Mrs. Jones?

Huge projects centered around greed simply will not work. Also, it is suffering that wakes us up and lifts us up. When there are natural disasters, people come together and help each other.

Oh, and Venus conjunct Neptune in Pisces can and will lift us up into nervi culpi Samadhi, a radical transformation which will have both an up side and a down side, both an ebb and a flow – but if we remain centered in Love, our way will be much more smooth.

As always, Kaypacha is wonderful to watch. He explains our current astrological aspects so well. And he always has a way of just helping me know everything is going to be okay eventually – and what’s going on right now has been written in the stars. I love introducing the Pele Report to family and friends. So many people enjoy it. Because it makes so much sense and Tom is such a down to earth guy.

This week’s mantra: Sorrow and disappointment can lead to anger and despair, so I open my arms, open my eyes and open my heart to all that needs loving and care.

Kaypacha’s farewell: Namaste. Aloha. So. Much. Love.

Kamea’s farewell: Rainbow Blessings of the Violet Flame. Om shanti, om shanti, om shanti.
