Happy Mothers Day to all the women who are moms in so many ways!
Carry your Mother on Your Back
Buddhism teaches that everyone you meet has been your mother or father in a previous life. Thus, the need for compassion and love for all. – as well as extreme gratitude to mother and father for providing the precious human birth that allows a person to hear the Dharma and move further toward enlightenment. “Mother and father are the source of our human origin without whose help we could have no chance to see the world.” - From ‘Buddha Heart’ on Facebook http://on.fb.me/kuWezD. Buddha Heart continues:
That’s pretty visceral stuff from a great Enlightened One and Bringer of Light. Wow.
The chart for Mothers Day is stressful, no doubt about it. But I’ll bet your reaction to the previous quote was strong. So was mine. Many of us have deep and profound ambivalence in our relationship with our mother (and father). Mother especially carries a heavy burden as she has a special bond with her child, the soul who takes form and comes through her physical body, a part of her on a primal level.
The crucible of childhood causes intense stress for both mother and child; and mother’s human limitations (everything from exhaustion to serious neuroses or worse) send a large percentage of the population to the therapist’s couch later in life.
Buddha’s mother died 7 days after he was born. He was a mother-orphan from birth.

The Urgency of the Cancerian Mysteries
A Cardinal Cross perfects today, the day before Mother’s Day – Pluto, Uranus and Saturn the big guys on the block turn to the sweet and sensitive mommy Cancerian Moon and say: YOU COMPLETE ME. This fleeting Cross triggers/brings to the forefront one of the key messages of the epochal Grand Cardinal Cross which occurred in the sky last summer, the summer of 2010. (You remember it well don’t you? What a summer that was. Phew.)
The message is: Cancerian energies are the energies that must be transformed so that Humanity can move forward. The Cross spoke this to us because the one point that was empty of a major planet at Zero Cardinal degrees was CANCERIAN. The Cross was only activated when a planet crossed through that point – the point was mostly activated by the nodes (points of past and future, of karma and destiny) and the moon, deeply connected to the nodes, and to eclipses.
I bring up eclipses because in the years preceding the Cardinal Cross of 2010 we had massive Total Solar Eclipses in the sign of Cancer. We have the last eclipse on the Cancer-Capricorn polarity on July 4 of this year, a solar eclipse.
Our attention has been brought to the Cancerian mysteries over and over and over on our recent journey.The Cardinal Cross is a major evolutionary juggernaut for our times, a force that will resonate literally for decades, perhaps its influence will remain for the entire century?? In my opinion, the Cardinal Cross is more important than 2012 (or one could say that astrologically the Cross IS what 2012 is all about) because of the unstoppable power planets hovering at the most sensitive degrees of the zodiac, the places that essentially DEFINE our human experience on earth - the 4 Directions. So any message from the Cross must be heeded.
Cancerian energies have a huge red flag on them. The empty Cancerian spot in the Cross, as well as the highly juiced Cancerian spot in the heavens illuminated by seismic eclipse energies, is blinking brightly.
Why? Because Cancerian energies are TRIBAL energies. They are the umbilical cord to our ancestral past, laden with separation-consciousness and the dark desire to kill anyone who threatens our security and survival. Cancerian is ALL about security and survival: protect the home nest and everyone outside of it is a stranger, even an enemy. Cancerian is about the old connection of BLOOD and BLOODLINES. Our parents give us their blood and the DNA in the blood which determines the amount of Light our physical form can hold.
As we now step into the Aquarian Age, a new kind of human is being born. Although not a literal coming reality, the HUMAN BORN OUT OF AN EGG - a being more fully gestated and therefore not as dependent on ancient imprints from unwitting parents - is a metaphor for the new human. Free of the umbilical cord, made more of Light - of crystalline silicon - and less of carbon and density. Still earthy but no longer in bondage to primitive identification with the Tribe.

Aquarius 7: A Child is Seen Being Born out of an Egg
Nudity in the picture above: I know this is a family show, but I wanted to demonstrate this Truth: We all come into this world naked and helpless, utterly dependent on flawed humans for support until we can take care of ourselves. They transmit to us all of the past information packets of humanity, for better and worse.
Aquarius detaches from earthly ties easily and sees the Collective as its true home, encouraging a new mentality of ONENESS and Unity Consciousness which sees every single human being on the planet as their blood brother and sister. Indeed we all come from the same two parents when you trace it back genealogically! We are all related if you go back far enough! Aquarius gets this and we will get it too, eventually (over the next 2000 years, or in 2012, whichever comes first LOL)
If every person is YOU, if you are connected to EVERYONE, then you will not kill them for nation or tribe or land or money or oil or security or out of fear or hatred. You will want to end their suffering along with your own. You will want them all to be clothed, fed and housed, educated, loved, provided with basic health care – just as you want those things for yourself and your nuclear family. The world will change in such a breathtaking way when the Cancerian mysteries are transmuted. Every tear will be wiped away - by a human hand, a human hand totally aware of the Divine in every single human being.
What does 'Namaste' mean? It is a greeting we use more now in the West now as it is a part of yoga, which is becoming very common here. It means: I honor the God in you, which is the same God that is in ME (loosely translated). The Cancerian lessons of our time, at the dawn of the 21st century and the Aquarian Age, are urgent and vital - and a huge Finger of God is pointing at them now.
Cancerian means mommy. Who is your Mother. (Who’s your mommy??! Sorry couldn’t resist lol) In the New Ways, The Goddess – the Divine FEMININE not just the Divine Masculine or God - will become a part of our spiritual understanding in a more conscious way. And the Earth Mother will be treated with the respect that we are raised to treat our biological mothers.
Happy Mothers Day to everyone, male and female. Today we celebrate the nurturing loving caring Cancerian part of all of us.
<< ALSO: "Mother's Day started when mothers from the South who'd lost sons during the Civil War joined with mothers from the North who'd lost sons in the war, trying to inspire the women of the world to stop war altogether. Let's make Mother's Day a day when we all make a stand for peace, beginning with where we stand within ourselves." - Marianne Williamson. Here is the Mother’s Day Proclamation: http://bit.ly/jRyiqr>>
Baseball, hot dogs, apple pie and Chevrolet (yes America is a Cancerian nation!)
