Kaypacha’s Astrology for the Soul, May 20, 2017


Okay, apparently I fell into a time warp wave and have absolutely no idea how so much of the month of May flew by with me missing out on writing up my summaries of Kaypacha’s weekly reports. Also, with the energy so intense, it has affected me on many levels, resulting in me being sent to lots of specialists, but I know I will be fine. The best part is I just started physical therapy for my neck and am learning so many great exercises which help quite a bit!

Also went through a break up, and that also has to do with the time warp wave hitting me so strongly. Anyway, enough about me, this week Tom talks at us from his home in Costa Rica, giving us a marvelous view of his backyard and wonderful banana trees which look like they are about to ripen.

Wednesday the Moon was in Aquarius, which is about friendships and social interactions. He says that nevertheless, it is time to MYOB (mind your own business), but Mars in Gemini is not so interested in that, either is Jupiter in Libra.

Moon moved on into Pisces late Thursday, where She will remain until Sunday, when She moves into fiery Aries until Tuesday, when She enters stable Taurus.

We have the Sun square the Moon, with the Moon right on the nodes. This is a very powerful square because it involves the nodal access. The Sun moves into Gemini today, Saturday, but just before that the Sun squared the Moon’s nodes and square the Moon. The square is 28 degrees – so the Sun will be at 28 degrees of Taurus, the Moon at 28 degrees of Aquarius on the south node with 28 degrees of Leo on the north node. As the Sun moves into Gemini today, Saturday, things are lightening up and picking up at the same time. We have fire and air going on here.

Saturn is in trine to Uranus this whole week. And Venus is opposite Jupiter, in conjunct to Neptune. Venus in Aries is powerful and independent, yet also wanting more connection. Jupiter had it’s first in conjunct to Neptune last September, but now it’s retrograde and has been happening again since Wednesday, quincunx. This will be going on until July 4. Kind of hitting us in the face, yet as an undercurrent, so it might not be so noticeable.

Jupiter quincunx Neptune opposite Venus is too much – all about excess. This is a Scorpio in conjunct, which is 150 degrees, not a Virgo in conjunct, which has a very different flavor. Neptune in conjunct makes us want to disappear, go up to a mountain, it’s a time when it’s hard to stay in our bodies, to stay grounded and rooted. The Sun in Taurus is two cobblers working at a bench, all about understanding what’s going on in 3D, hard working earth sign. Since it’s squaring the moon’s nodes – one of the nodes is a mermaid jumping out of the water, and the other is a chrysallis about to emerge as a butterfly.

This is a time of great paradox. We can go into the places of imagination and illusion which are so separate from reality it can be quite unsettling. This is a time where it’s really wanting to help humanity embrace, get used to, and become more comfortable with living in a paradox. It’s not either or, it’s everything else and more. The masculine aspect wants independence while the feminine aspect wants connection, both physical, emotional and spiritual.

We grow through intimacy, mirrors, other people. The questions which arise are should I stay or should I go? Well, we are both in and out. We can want everything and nothing at the same time. We live in a third dimensional world which is polarized, yet we are spiritual beings here to embrace, unite, integrate, and become more aware of how these polarities need each other to do the dance and not be swinging from one end of the spectrum, pointing fingers at the other, and then finding ourselves at the other.

This is a time when there is gravity and yet there is not gravity. Yes there is divine natural law and also the truth is subjective. For any belief you may have, we will discover that there is a paradoxical point of view which may pull us out of our comfort zones. The south node of the Moon in Aquarius will be going on for a year, which has us living in our heads, perhaps so caught up in our imaginations that we are pulled completely out of our knowledge base. It’s scary to come down from the position of being a bird perched on a branch. There are a lot of scary things on the ground.

This is a dangerous time and we know ourselves through danger. We know ourselves through danger and confrontation. This Scorpio quincunx is trying to control, control, control. Kaypacha says we are emerging out of 6,500 years of patriarchal conditioning where we have been taught that we are not enough, that we don’t know enough and we should be afraid and subservient, but despite that, it’s okay to make some major decisions right now. It’s important to trust our intuitions, to know that we are connected to the inner Divine. The enlightened guru says we must be willing to let go of everything in order to enter the gates of Nirvana. This can be rather scary. There are lots of things that can happen, yet it is also super exciting. He likens this to his skiing trips because he is not very good at skiing. This reminds me of the scene in Fantasia where the Magician’s Apprentice practices magic without enough knowledge and everything goes awry.

We can go through these waters trusting and know that control will come back – and we don’t always need to be in control. This is the place where we can dance, play, sing, and fill our hearts with joy and love. We don’t have to know all the answers or have all the money. This reminds me that surrender is seeking the peace which surpasses understanding. Releasing that need to know brings such abundant and lasting peace. And it is always there for us.

This week’s mantra: If I’m going to dance, I’ve got to move, not fight the flow, but feel the groove. Not get twisted by the paradox, but come out smiling like a jack in the box.

Namaste. Aloha. So. Much. Love.

Rainbow Blessings of Love and Light!

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, April 19, 2017


This week, Kaypacha’s Pele Report is being recorded at a lovely wilderness sanctuary with Mercury going back into Aries, yikes. Mercury needs to conjoin with Uranus again, so we have more intensity to face until the end of the month.

Aries is all about being spontaneous, getting things done.

This is a crazy-making time with Venus conjunct Chiron until the 26th, square Saturn on the galactic center. Sunday, the Moon comes around to conjunct Venus and Chiron in squaring Saturn all together. Luckily, the Sun just moved into stable Taurus, which helps keep us grounded through all this intense retrograde action and the fiery and steamy energy of planets in Pisces, Aries and Sagittarius.

So some things are moving forward, yet some things, with Mercury retrograde, are not moving at all.

Mars goes into Gemini on Friday, so we will have a palpable shift of energy with these transitions.

So it began to rain, Tom says the sh*&t is hitting the fan all over the world, and in his life as well. Foundations are being uprooted. This is a very powerful time in history, powerful time to be alive, in a body, to experience this madness.

We just need to give thanks, every day, because we never thought this would happen! Important reminder that we all chose to experience this, as we are all multidimensional beings, and we chose to came here at this pivotal time. At this time when duality is cracking apart and the old patriarchal paradigm is ending. This is school. Education – the end of not knowing and the birth of knowing.

Just like when we’re kids and want to play and have fun and they make us sit in a desk and throw numbers and books at us – yet we are full of infinite potential – and the result of our awakening is power, intelligence, and capability. Our creative capacity is enhanced and expanded with our education.

This is particularly important now as Uranus is about to conjunct with Mercury around, for Uranus is all about genius and Mercury is about linear, logical, left brained thinking, and we are all getting our minds blown. It is crucial to do our yoga and our pranayama (I was thinking of an excuse for not doing this, but after typing this up, how can I do that? I also know there is always less pain after even twenty minutes of restorative hatha yoga).

We need to get in touch with and really feel our feelings. Aries is instinct, our gut, our animalistic nature, primal consciousness – we are getting deeper and deeper into our bodies. Uranus is super individualistic, mixed with Aries Sun and Mercury and we get a tough combination – Uranus co-rules the root chakra with Saturn and Pluto. This impulse. We are becoming illuminated through dreams, through family, through Facebook and other social media – figuratively struck by lightning, which is getting us more in touch with our essential core beliefs. We are standing up for our freedom of expression.

These aspects also can make us want to break free from our jobs, relationships, dwellings and embrace new ideas, new communities, new inventions, yet as we start setting our sites on these goals we will see how each goal is full of steps and certain karmic stumbling blocks are absolutely set in place at different levels (appropriate levels, of course) for each of us.

It’s like we’re being told that recess is not yet, Mercury retrograde says for us to sit down because we need to know these things. We could all be ready to explode these days – Mars in Taurus is like a volcano – volcanoes are going off in Costa Rica.

Knowing the time element and the steps involved will help us to make our plans accordingly. Sometimes when we do things spontaneously, too quickly, there are some repercussions we have to deal with which may not be so pleasant at all – like what’s going on with North Korea, Syria, Afghanistan, Russia – yikes.

Getting in touch with our animal nature, our instinct, ourselves at a cellular level is what we get with Aries. It’s important to tap into ourselves and deal with the complexities which arise out of that.

This week’s mantra: Life is an education, drawing me out of me. The bigger me out of the little me. The more that I can handle, the more I set myself free.

He encourages us to be real, stay sober, and deal with the complexities of this life, for the more difficult and complex it is, it will get easier as we plunge into it. If we avoid by numbing ourselves, we simply won’t learn the necessary lessons.

Merely paraphrasing and a brief summary, for Tom says all this and much, much more, and is so worth watching each week. I find it very helpful.

Kaypach: Namaste. Aloha. So. Much. Love.

Kamea: Om Namaha Shivaya. Rainbow Blessings of Love and Light to all of you.

Kaypacha’s Astrology For The Soul, April 12, 2017


Well, here we are just past the awesome Full Moon in Libra. This week Tom talks at us from a relaxing lovely spring. Wish I could go to a place like that right now, but imagining is the next best thing.

Mars in Taurus is heavy energy – stable and yet hard to venture outwards, lots of time out. Retrograde Venus in Pisces along with Chiron in Pisces takes us down, down, down into our inner selves – Chiron creates a healing crisis for many of us. The reason for this is so we can learn to feel our feelings. This is our root chakra, kundalini life force and is powerful. We’re like a volcano which is building up lots of pressure, wanting to blow – like a lion and a tiger in a cage, or a bull in a china shop.

Mercury in retrograde is commerce, business, things breaking down – Kaypacha’s internet went down the other day, it’s a good time to be prepared. It’s about fast, sharp, overwhelming amounts of information to the point where we don’t feel anything, actually even become a computer, needing more intense movies, sex, etc. so that we can feel. It’s been accelerating, so those of us remaining in touch with our feelings are so blessed.

Pisces is Spirit and CHiron wants to heal our division from Spirit. Meditation, music, yoga, dance, poetry, Nature – that which gets us in touch with healing and away from the mainstream news – so much chaos going on out there – we need to remain centered and come from a deeper profound meaning of love.

Lots of paraphrasing here but sometimes I throw in some of my own perspectives. Here the Sun is conjunct Uranus in Aries has us asking if we are truly living our truth, and if we are financially, sexually, physically satisfied. Is our love life working? Or not? These lower chakra connections brings up these questions – are we just friends, political allies, or is this something more? The movement of feeling is emotion. Our feelings and thoughts are maya – illusion – we deceive ourselves. We need to diagnose our lives, our relationships, our values and our goals. Bucket list evaluation – are we doing it or just surfing, getting distracted by this link, that link and that other link and before long headed for the grave?

Uranus in Aries helps us to break free from the chains of our old habits which no longer serve us. But we must be careful not to over-react. Action and not reaction. Three days to sleep on it, to dream on it. Uranus is the great witness, witnessing our feelings, our lives and our relationships. Saturn square is saying be mature, be patient, make a plan.

This is the Year of Profound Revelation and End of Illusion, so it’s best to be in that place of the Witness, where we see the places more freedom is needed, more discipline, be real and willing to break free of the old patterns. We must be conscious of our habits, then they are no longer habits. Habits are activities based on fear.

We can be afraid to change – they might not love us anymore, we might mess it up, but we have to take the risks and do the work and let go of the old order, the old paradigm, the old you, which is naturally scary. Saturn in Sagittarius is the root chakra.

It’s natural to be afraid to step up and out of the old ways, because letting go is just scary. Venus, Chiron, Neptune in Pisces is all helping us to let go and evolve into something even more of ourselves, our spiritual genius, let go and slowly allow Spirit, your own unconscious, whatever you want to call it, more room.

All of this and so much more in the spontaneous compassionate way that Kaypacha shares with us each week.

This week’s mantra: Great Spirit states it’s time to change,
not superficially rearrange,
but dig beneath the surface and the new
to the fear that is gnawing away at your root.

Kaypacha’s Farewell: Namasate. Aloha. So. Much. Love.

Kamea’s Farewell: Om Namaha Shivaya. Om Shanti. Shanti. Shanti.

Kaypacha’s Astrology For The Soul, April 05, 2017


This week Kaypacha talks at us from a lovely park near his home in Costa Rica, beginning with the cycles of the moon, which is moving on into Virgo today, into Libra Sunday just in time for the Full Moon in Libra on Monday.

Saturn in Sagittarius just went retrograde Wednesday, and Sunday Mercury in Taurus will be retrograde, along with Venus (which has thankfully moved back into softer Pisces, as has Chiron), which all present us with a wonderful opportunity to finally truly heal our deepest wounds so that we can move into the Age of Aquarius gracefully. This deep wounds wants to be healed. Everything we have been through thus far at this point has all been part of this process. Saturn conjunct the Galactic Center shows this epic point of transformation. Aquarius is all about community,

Uranus in Aries is all about freedom, square Pluto in Capricorn brings us face to face with the past, the patriarchy, ego, authority, power, control, the Illuminati. Tom gives us a great analogy to this aspect – he says it is like giving birth in a forest filled with lions, tigers and bears. Necessary precautions must be taken.

This is so worth watching, when you have the time, and due to certain physical circumstances, cutting this short, which i figure is far better than skipping typing up this summary.

The mantra: Expanding into my future, I confront my limiting past, the test to see if both can be transformed by Me at last.

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

Kamea: Rainbow Blessings. Om namaha shivaya.

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!
