Agent Ei’s Planetary Diary

The Venus and Dark Moon Diary on the 19th September as Venus continues to reign high as the Morning Star

During a time when time has slipped; chaos feels normal; broken sleep has made it the world feel dreamlike; doubletalk is acceptable; and exasperation is commonplace, it is easy to forget that the Heart lights the way.

Rising high above the light of the masculine ego, the blue-white light of love shines brightly each and every dawn, reminding you that from love, you are born; from love, you can overcome the blinding luminosity of the ego; from love, you can bridge between anyone and anything.

So my hope for you, for us during this time of the Dark Moon, is that you look with the One eye to see what the Two cannot; that you see through the diffuseness that masks an ever changing landscape; that you know in your heart that what binds you is being eroded and dissolved; that you are being called to look in and not out to find freedom and truth; that you stand resolute and firm to those ideals that bring you closer to lOve, even if it is easy to react from a place of fear and anger; and that you know that as you face the chaos, wholeness is eventually created. An opening into the stillness that lies beneath the chaos is there for you to embrace in the days leading up to the New Moon, wherein you can find a peace you may not think is possible and within which you can see what shimmers within this emotional storm and how that has become a legacy within your body. You are being given the opportunity to let what distracts and divides you cease as you can walk into this opening into the quiet that lies beneath this chaos where peace and wholeness co-exist and where you can truly bring into being your souls deeper wisdom.

The Dark Moon Diary on the 17th September as the Moon moves into her Balsamic Phase                                          

A New Moon is an invitation in consciousness to re-fresh and re-new your relationship to one facet of your overall consciousness and this coming September it is the turn of the Mutable Earth or Virgoan consciousness, an aspect of your being that seeks to return to a virginal, or whole, state so that you can actively and compassionately participate in contributing to the Whole.

In the days leading up to this renewal, can I ask you to reflect on whether there exists some part of you that has become bound and therefore has splintered you from feeling both Whole (Virgo) and Unified (Pisces)? Do you recognise what is holy and crave its blessing but fear the change that would be involved? Is there a habit, a belief, a relationship, an aspect of your life that has you in its grip that confines you, that limits the freedom with which you move through this world? Can you envision what being truly free of that bind would feel like? Have you taken the time to confront, at all levels of your consciousness, the issue/ person/ situation and what they truly represent for you, so that you can free yourself of that which keeps you from feeling Whole?

Today is a time to release;  today is a time to hold a space as you prepare to receive; today is a time to enter the Dark and to emotionally pause as you prepare to offer up that which binds you.

The Turquoise and Neon Diary on the 15th September as Uranus and Neptune octile

“the underlying unity in our collective, the Path has felt increasingly decompartmentalised, fragmented, isolated and splintered, so far removed from the seed that was planted some twenty four years ago when a gap in consciousness to eliminate the divide between waking and sleeping consciousness opened up, accelerating, for many, their feel of time; encouraging a ’conscious’ thinning of the division within the various layers of consciousness; opening up a deeper understanding of ‘spiritual’ technology as humanity have projected their ‘pyramidal’ anthropomorphic structures into those ethereal realms; enabling imagination-technology to flow more freely, which in turn has transformed humanities use of physical technology as the gap between innovation and manifestation shortens; the increased dissatisfaction and disenfranchisement at the way in which the systems designed for another humanity remain has ‘consciously’ intensified over the past several months as a specific planetary archetypal coupling has reached a ‘sensitive’ turning point in its one hundred and seventy one year synodical cycle.”

The Orange Diary on the 12th September as Mercury trioctiles Pluto

In a world full of opinions concerning what to believe it, what is truth, what is appropriate, what is real, how you should live, think and be, it can be hard to hear your own voice and to understand who is truly creating your reality. After all, the closer you come to knowing that you alone create the world of your experience, the more vital it becomes for you to discover just who is doing the creating. So as your mind descends into a deeper place, which for some will be dark and for others profoundly still; as your mind dives into the deepest waters of your consciousness, swimming within your Deep and amidst the dark, cool waters of your minds eyes, the projections of your mental body onto this dimmed canvas can offer you the opportunity to understand how your mind really works and to discover who is really in charge of your consciousness – you or someone or something else?

The Neon and Turquoise Diary on the 10th September as Uranus octiles Neptune

Senses enlivened, through the spin you see clearly the distractions that bind souls to a way of being that is designed to prevent your awakening; to stop you purely connecting to a deeper meaning; to keep you chained to this reality, closing you off from the holographic multiverse that you/ we live within. Insights abound as the scale of society’s comatosed behaviour is revealed and you can see the filament threads ensorcelling the hearts and minds of those devouring the blue pill. Painful to witness and disheartening, your focus is jarred by the transparency of those insights and the sickly feeling of seeing the life force and creative spirit being sucked from humanity. What can you do? After all you are but one person. Will you sit in similar consort, rejoicing in apathy’s walk over? Or will you focus on the filaments that continue to bind you to this world, freeing yourself fully and showing the way for others to join you? That is the choice that befalls you as your soul awaits this psychonautic journey to your inner landscapes.

The Red Diary on the 8th September as Mars trioctiles Pluto

A raw, unblemished, terrifying power whose unwavering strength is so powerful that you can literally move mountains with your indomitable will drives through the ether, whose conviction is so complete that you have access to a spirit to keep going, to endure beyond reason, beyond logic; whose quiet determination is so frightening and resolute that no-one could ever question your resolve; and whose passion is so elemental that when unleashed can consume and engulf you to a point that you no longer exist. There is no rule book to guide you as to how to direct it. There is no teacher that can help you understand it. There is only you and your awareness.

How do you want to channel this life give/ life destroying energy is entirely up to you! But remember, with great power comes massive responsibility, a responsibility that transcends beyond morality and ethics, a responsibility that has nothing to do with the smallness of your egoic Self, but a responsibility to your humanity and to gOd consciousness to honour and respect your pre-life choice to become a custodian of the most powerful, most dangerous and more fertile life force imaginable. Yet you may not fully recognise it within yourself, which is why the world is now conspiring around you to force you to connect with this primal, reptilian survival being within you during moments of peak and heightened emotional tension. It is within those moments can you glimpse that towering strength, like a patient volcano waiting to erupt, giving and taking life in its smouldering heat. It is there for you to access and use, to bring through you the elementalness of your spirit and to enable your dreams to find manifestation, even if the world around you ‘appears’ to thwart you.

The Turquoise and Neon Diary on the 7th September as Neptune octiles Uranus
Within these Orwellian times where nothing is certain, ‘war is peace, freedom is slavery and ignorance is strength’, it may feel as if those pillars of certainty – honour and honesty are no longer stalwarts. The goalposts constantly changing within a world that is no longer solid, chaos reigning within this personal and public fog, it feels to me that within this challenging change, where even the best laid plans and commitments maybe waylaid, all you have is your personal code of integrity. Even if your heart feels lost, angry or despair at the empty promises made by the wolf in sheep’s clothing; even if you feel despondent that hope has left you; even if you feel overwhelmed by the barrage of pain, fear and loss that consumes the newstalk; even if you feel that what is not lOve thrives within this unclear land, your heart is all you can stand by.
 
Through this uncertain space, your heart continues to dream of a state of wholeness, a place where everything comes together, where loss will be made good, where blindness will transform into vision and where damage will be made whole. This is my prayer for you, for us, that you look with the One eye to see what the Two cannot; that you see through the diffuseness that masks an ever changing landscape; that you know in your heart that what binds you is being eroded and dissolved; that you are being called to look in and not out to find freedom and truth; that you stand resolute and firm to those ideals that bring you closer to lOve, even if it is easy to react from a place of fear and anger; and that you know that as you face the chaos, wholeness is eventually created.
 
This may mean diving deeper into the chaos as you may be called to acknowledge, challenge and grapple with forces that insidiously thrive within chaos, forces that often work in ways that are exceedingly subtle and cloaked, or embodied within a ‘noble’ soul who in the clear light of day is a wolf in sheep’s wool. Facing further into those empty promises and standing resolute in the belief that lOve will prevail, whilst at the same time compassionately calling out those whose empty words overlie a perfidious reality may not feel lOving
 
For today, let there be an opening into the stillness that lies beneath the chaos, where you find the peace you did not think possible and see what shimmers within the storm.

The Silver Diary on the 6th September as the Moon Fulls in Pisces
Six and a half months on from the seed you planted to no longer become a wave in the ocean, but become THE ocean, you are now ‘feeling’ the full force of your emotional body in all levels of your world. Deeply emotional, ebbing to and fro within this free flowing fluid exchange of emotional charged light between you and everyone and everything within your world, the question of how you have truly embodied your feeling nature; whether you have listened to your emotional intelligence; and how puppeteered you are by your emotions is now viscerally transparent for you and the world to experience. In the same way that the Dark has been fighting hard to survive against the increasing numbers of those that are remembering they are Light, that external battle has been mirrored within you, as those darkened emotions that bind and enslave you have been roaming freely, trying desperately to find safe ground to make their home.
 
Quietly beside you, as you swim along this e-moting and e-nlightening path, forgiveness, acceptance and compassion have been your allies, ever shielding you from those whose blindness has emotionally done you harm. Within these warming waters, your Light is spreading and your gOdness prevailing, even though the waters you’ve swum through have been at times treacherous. The double talk echoing from those within your world has been ignored as you have learnt to look past those beautifully crafted words to the deeper intent of a small and damaged ego that has tried to impose itself on an already faltering ego-driven world, holding steadfast to your commitment to Being as opposed to doing. It may be a quiet, non-invasive path, as opposed to a world filled with selfie-vlogging, but as you have sought to reclaim those deeper emotional weaves lingering from your ancestral lines, the health of your inner world is now gently spilling over the inky-blue carpet.
 
A wave is not IN the ocean. A wave is THE ocean.
 
You are THAT ocean.
 
Whatever you feel within your web, you create for everyone else. Your heart, your imagination, your inspiration and your emotions create reality for each and every-one. The healing you have done, in turn heal your world. The forgiveness you feel, washes over us all. As you release your pain, you help us release our pain.
 
Thank you for what you have released. Thank you for the deep processing you have done. Thank you for your healing medicine and the clearing out you have done. Thank you.
 
As the Moon fulls, there is only one thing to do – feel in and feel out. Feel in and feel out.

The Gold Diary on the 5th September as the Sun opposes Neptune and trioctiles Uranus and Mercury turns Direct

The past three weeks have been about taking the time to draw on your listening-imagination so that you can truly hear your gentle voice within the heart of your life, a voice that is clearer, deeper and more relevant than that critical voice of anxiety, judgement and disappointment. Surrounded by emotional distractions, deceit and empty promises of union or of a ‘brighter’ future, your ego has been through the wringer, toss and tumbled like a feather in a storm.

Yet as you have truly listened and planted a new seed ten days ago, the enchanting veils of illusion that have become the standard bearer have been pierced. Reality as it was, is no longer. Squandering yourself on foods, people and situations that deplete your essence no longer feels apt, relevant or even meaningful as the hooks that bind you to those unkind situations are released. Sadness may grace your path as you step off this treadmill and quit the soap opera, but today as you stand and face illusion; today, as clarity of your heart abounds; today, as your mind is filled with insight to move forward; today, as you can see what you have always known in your heart to be true; today, you can ‘feel’ past the pain of regret, you are landing with steady feet on the earth, a safe haven within this mental and heartfelt tumult. Be gentle, my friend, for there were no mistakes, just deep learning; be compassionate towards all that you have experienced, they were just that, experiences; be kind, because those agents are on their own path and may not realise what they have done; be thankful, as the emotional bonds that trap you are released; be jOyfilled as a new energy and passion awakens within you; and just be, as your mind turns out from in.

The Orange Diary on the 4th September as Mercury trines Uranus

Faster than a speeding bullet, the ideas burst through you, exploding into your consciousness, instantaneously inspirational and deeply insightful, opening your mind further, exciting and enlivening you and then… gone as quickly as they arrived. Perhaps it is not necessary for everything to land and settle; perhaps the Muse is only meant cross the Veil for a second, reminding that the world is not horizontal and a lot more colourful than your greying education has painted; but come on… so not fair, after all you have just had such clarity, conviction and surety move through you, as if the caul has lifted from your eyes and you are seeing everything afresh and renewed, almost as if you had been lifted from your own life and were seeing through an alien’s perspective. All ten senses awakened, your mind joined with your heart, knowledge rapidly transmitted, your perception altered irrevocably, as your body experiences and knows, even if the mind cannot retain. Utterly invigorating and totally genius, your life will not be the same again.

The Blood red-Orange Diary on the 3rd September as Mercury and Mars align in Leo

On this day that births clarity and conviction, may you have the equanimity and composure not to personalise what is said of you, but to receive it with an open heart, confidence in your own essence and steady of your own light to see where another is on their journey. May you have the grace to act in kindness and the humility to know that even when you are right, you do not need to impose yourself on your world. May you have speak truth in an open and honest manner, without an agenda and without intending to ‘get one up’ on another, respecting their opinion, even if you don’t agree. May you receive the clarity of truth, speak with burning passion, yet carry lOve in your heart so that arrogance does not grip you. May your mind continue to lOve frontiers so that your childlike enthusiasm can invoke in your world all that is good, bright and life affirming. And may you carry this seed of clear thought and deft action with you in all that you do and with all whom you share your light.

The Neon and Turquoise Diary on the 2nd September as Uranus and Neptune continue to octile

Ah the tumult… Sweeping through consciousness at every level, a raging, swirling tempest, unsettling those institutions by which we live; dissolving what has felt like reality in its wake; and thinning the barrier that has kept us safe from that which could free us. And so it has been feeling tenuous. Why? Maybe it has something to do with our obsessive drive to become the living embodiment of Einstein’s definition of stupidity as ‘we’ attempt to deal with cope with uncertainty by re-creating in the way that ‘we’ have always done and, with our fingers crossed, hope that the outcome will be somewhat different.

But it is not working.

It cannot work.

Why? Nothing, literally nothing is working the way that it should. But, my friend, there is no point struggling with any preconceived structures that have been designed to keep you comfortable – no, let’s rephrase that, that keeps those in control comfortable. The rules are not changing – they’ve already changed; the mechanisms within all systems have already dissipated and dissolved; time feels different; relationships have been irrevocably altered; duality has morphed and multiple realities co-exist; what was solid, is no longer… All you can do is to less your need to ‘clutch’ onto what appears to be real; all you can do is enter the myst and allow the Veil consume you; all you can do is surrender and let go; all you have to do is embrace the chaos and coax into being this new wave; all you can do is look with One eye and trust what you cannot see with the two.

The Orange Diary on the 27th August as the Sun and Mercury start off the new Mind-Light cycle in Virgo   

And so it begins… though you may have a lot going on at other levels of your consciousness; though your heart maybe processing some delicate scripts; though your beliefs maybe in question; though your physicality maybe learning humility and your emotional body lies beneath a weight of intense emotions, may you feel the relief of a clear mind rinse through your soul, calling your eyes to see with clarity, your heart to feel with conviction and confidence, your desire to feel free to express through you with reverence and respect, and your actions align with your deeper intentions. Awakening from its slumber, may your mind stay clear and open to the possibility that you are and that those in your life are, recognising the world that lies beneath pretence and ego-posturing. It is a new mind-day, it is a new mind-dawn so leave behind those scripts that you’ve been called to release since the 13th. Awaken, breathe, ground and create…

The Venus Diaries on the 24th August as Venus trioctiles Neptune

Heart-consciousness disillusionment can arise in all forms, varying in severity but is merely one form of dis-integration, splitting off and compartmentalisation, can leave you feeling let down beyond comprehension feeling shocked, alienated and isolated and perhaps even lacking confidence regarding how you lOve, what you lOve and who you lOve. But does disillusionment really only serve to destroy? Is it not also a builder, as you alchemically create a differing reality after a period of existential crisis? You can neither ‘spiritually bypass’ nor ‘spiritualise’ a very real situation by side-stepping or repressing the uncomfortable emotions that arise, but if you let the emotions flow so that they become a tributary to the soul, all the necessary lessons are harboured there. As your heart opens up to a higher value, the illusion that your ego-heart desires is often just that – an illusion, a potent one that further binds you, preventing you from truly reaching home – that state of complete unconditional acceptance of who you are, where you are and how you are. Perhaps you could ‘blame’ the eclipses; perhaps you could blame the ‘object’ of the disappointment; perhaps you could blame yourself for your stupidity; or perhaps you could see the ‘gifts’ that are being offered as another layer of distraction is shed as you move towards a greater conscious awareness of your wholeness.

The Red Diary on the 23rd August as Mars trines Saturn

In the same way that the Moon needs time before she becomes full, any seeds that are planted take time before they are ready to show their fledgling shoots. In a fast paced world, the savouring insights that patience gifts has been forgotten, and yet it is those insights that help to refine, strengthen and sharpen your focus on your path. Patience is not about sitting and waiting. Patience is not about learning to deal with frustration. It is about looking at the night but seeing the day; it is about reinforcing the initial vision and refining it as further information comes to light to help you gain a deeper understanding of the path that needs to be walked. That eclipse seed planted on Monday will emerge. Soon. But for now, trust, let it go and watch it grow.

The Gold and Silver Diary on the 21st August – The Eclipse/ New Moon in Fixed Fire

The deepest soul growth takes place within the Dark, a place wherein you cannot hide from the narrative of your Mind, projected onto a canopy that has no boundaries; that is utterly enveloping; that penetrates you to your core and offers you the opportunity to ‘see’ the truth of the health of your interiority. Without the distractions of the external world to encourage you to ignore; within the profound quietness that amplifies your inner narrative; the Dark eclipses your front and exposes who you are.

Smoothing your soul, softening your jagged edges, quietening that insufferable inner narrative, breathe in the enveloping silence of the fake night as the harsh, dazzling yet vibrant light gradually dims and diffuses like a watercolour landscape, fading eventually to grey and then painted black, as Nature pauses in quiet awe and the heat of busyness is cooled by full but gentle embrace of the Inner heart being made fully visible.

As the spark of your Inner Flame is once again re-ignited you can offer up that which tampers with your life, purrs fear in its web and has frozen your heart. Today offers you the chance to stand in the presence of your Inner World and to ‘experience’ the reality the health of your Inner Spirit and how still your Soul is. It is a wonderful occasion to observe what distractions arise within this Dark to keep you bound to ancient scripts that do not serve jOy, peace and lOve.

Offer it up, my friend, offer it up.

The Turquoise Diary on the 20th August as Neptune octiles Uranus

It felt so right to swallow the red pill, after all you sought truth, you wanted to know and now that you have opened the eye that matters and have pulled back the curtain, exposing the manipulating puppeteer, you don’t know what to do! It is hard to face the disconnect between vision and truth and the reality of how that truth and vision are applied, since it means admitting the lie and re-wiring those deeply grooved conditional scripts so that you can start to live completely in line with what you truly believe. It is too easy to pick out obvious ideological disconnects, like a meat eating, Bible quoting born again Christian carrying a gun in the glove compartment for self-defence purposes not realising the irony that “thou shalt not kill” means thou shalt not kill, but now the Veil has been pierced, you cannot but not ‘see’ how deep and subtle the disconnect runs.

During this chaotically revolutionary time, you can gain a deeper insight into ANY disconnect between vision and truth, as your surrounding world prompts you into an existential questioning of the socio-spiritual values that you have grown within and whether you are living in true alignment with those core values at EVERY level of your being – physically, economically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually. Those outrageous dramas that you have been experiencing are merely ‘designed’ to better understand the difference between “power over” versus “taking on your own power”, bringing into your awareness the issues of living in accord with your truth and convictions.

The blue pill can be taken and you can go back to sleep. But can you forget what your One Eye has seen? No. Even if you numb yourself with busyness, screens, worry and fear, mood altering drugs and alcohol, it isn’t really working and nightmares have been disturbing your sleep as your spirit seeks to continue to liberate itself from that which binds it fast. So you may as well continue to walk through this Veil and try to find a bridge to connect what you believe to be true with the way that you are currently living…

The Neon Diary on the 19th August as Uranus octiles Neptune

It’s been ever so confusing on planet Earth of late, not knowing what to believe; what is true; what is false; what is solid; what is fantasy; what you are being told; what you are not being told; is the Earth flat or spherical; why is it that you are told that things are improving yet it feels as if the world is living in a perpetual ground hog day, as the same patterns and stories repeat, time and time again (albeit with an ever increasing technological backdrop). It feels that all news is fake and nothing Big Brother is telling you is true, as they protect their own self-serving interests under the pretence of that ever so dangerous statement “for the greater good”. Security tightens, colonisation increases, pressure rises.

But you know what is true. You know what is appropriate. You know what the right thing to do is. You know that YOU cannot compromise on your ideals, as you know that will further bind you to the Wheel, a wheel that you are trying so hard to free yourself from. And as the veil has been pierced and Light lifts through the mist, you can ‘see’ what you have known and felt. Even though your ego might be upset; even though your gut might drop; even though your heart might momentarily miss a beat, you know that you cannot compromise your inner truth – a truth your mind has been searching for as you have turned inwards towards YOUR light. That Light, the one that is eternal and can never dwindle (because of the existence of the Leonine archetype within you (that archetype about to be renewed for the second time inside of a month)), is your saving grace – from the lies of the world; from the pretence of those trying to be OF the world; from the games that are played to stock pile for some distant time in the future; from the fear that walks before the dying Darkness, whose desperate fight for survival tightens the screw of those at the top of the pyramid. Your light, your truth is all that you have, and within this clear light, the blurred boundaries are revealed and so too the actions you need to make to enable your Light to continue to burn brightly.

Don’t be disappointed with what you are now seeing. It is the insight you have needed to free your Light.

The Red Diary on the 16th August as Mars quincunxes Pluto

There is a natural rhythm to the active and receptive energies within. At times your energy is strong and outgoing better enabling you to pursue your goals, to take risks and to get things accomplished. At other times, that libidinal energy is quiet and sensitive and encourages you to take the time to nurture yourself, to relax and just ‘be’ for a while. In those less vibrant moments there is no point pushing through it; there is no point trying to prove how stoic and resolute you are; there is no point getting frustrated and angry. In the same way that spring always follows winter, so too will your libido rise. If you can trust and follow this rhythm, you will attract and create everything that your soul truly needs, even if your ego disagrees.

The Orange Diary on the 13th August as Mercury retrogrades

Tired mind, look and see all that you have done and all that you have perceived. The world is of your making, unlimited as it is; so why hide your light from shining, when your truth will set you free. Turn inwards towards your light, staying true to your road; distancing yourself from the distractions who attempt to claim your heart during this oft maligned and misunderstood time. Your keys will be found; your contracts will be fine; your calendar will not corrupt; your data will be retrieved; and your communication will not be misunderstood as the world will not grind to a halt. Energy follows attention; attention arises from awareness; awareness stems from knowing and knowing comes from stillness. My prayer for you today is for stillness of mind and the beauty in listening to the magic that exists in your life. Look in to look out.
