Lilian's December Newsletter
3 weeks after an extensive emergency Appendectomy my 12 old Grandson was injured in a.... out of all things...football game in school. Back to the hospital for him, I was elected to beTaxi for the day... About 2 hours before I get up I might add, so it took a while for my brain to catch up with my aching body, it did by the time I got to the other end of town.
My Granddaughter Ebony's car died on Wednesday a week ago, after a lot of thinking about it, begging and patience ... that is what you do when you have no money ... she took matters into her own hands and operated on her car. She replaced fuses and installed a new starter, all by herself. The car runs for a moment, changes it's mind and leaves her stranded at the next corner. AAA has reached the limits, no more tows for Ebony until May 2009. I picked her up from work and she told me how we intended to move her car back to her mother's house and leave it there till it was fixed. She was going to jump it, race it up the hill in reverse. She estimated that the car would die at the top of the hill, at which time she was putting it into neutral, roll it back down the hill making a necessary left turn and roll it into the parking space. I held my breath while she talked to the car. She executed her theory and the car responded favorably, it parked on a dime!
A storm was on the horizon and a quick trip to COSTCO was in order. I was amazed how few people were there. Standing in ... compared to normal ... mini lines, people were talking to each other. This in itself was somewhat unusual also. People were friendly, talking about the fact that hardly anyone had more than 3-5 items in their shopping cart. They told about their friends, which lost their houses in foreclosure and their own spouses loosing a job. How food prizes had risen at least 5% across the board and how happy everyone was to see the gas prizes drop. It was strange to listen how well everyone appeared to handle things. ALMOST everyone agreed on one thing! Barack Obama as our new president. Even in our city people celebrated in the streets. Our extremely complicated, confrontational police department allowed people to use several blocks of downtown for a victory party. Police on horses and bicycles patrolled, ever so often I could hear fireworks going off... I live 8 miles from town. Our citizen COP WATCH ... an organization some found necessary to form in order to keep and eye on the sometimes too zealous police force ... had only praise. Total order on November 4th, 2008. It took 2 whole weeks before another "Criminal" was shot in the street at 5:23 in the afternoon ...one township over.
November 4th, 2008 was a historical day. Something happened to us as a people. A shift of some kind occurred, even in people, which were not in agreement with the outcome of the election. On some level one can feel we have lifted the burden of living in fear. In 2007 Elisabeth Kucinich, when campaining with her husband presidential candidate Dennis Kucinich, suggested workshops and lectures to be put in place for those of us which could teach us how to live a hopeful life, like we still were on September 10th, 2001. 9.10, she called it. She did not get a chance to do that, BUT, in an INSTANT November 4th, 2008 it felt like we had all taken her workshop.
Someone said the script is written for us long before we get to this life and only the author/programmer of said script knows how it works and why. Guess that applies here also. As I write this newsletter many people died in India from a terrorist attack. Even at that most people I questioned on the street today are far less afraid as they were for the past 8 years. The energy has shifted. No matter how we try we don't seem to be able to think like we did in October, even though things got worse for most of us. After leaving COSTCO I saw a woman standing at the street corner. She leaned on her cane, her face visibly distorted by pain. She h eld up a card board sign: NEED GAS-I AM HUNGRY.
I had just spend all the money I had in the world on 2 loafs of bread, I pulled over and tore the bag with the two loafs of bread and gave her one. There was traffic behind me so I was unable to talk to her, I felt so bad for her... I know debilitating pain which keeps you from standing up straight... I had no money to give her. I returned later on that evening worried she had nowhere to stay during the storm, maybe she would like to stay at my house for a night and rest. She was gone.
Speaking of Dennis Kucinich, he was, for the second time, the winner of the Human Of The Year Award. My viewers choose him because he was furious about a 90+-year old woman in his district being evicted from her home. She found it necessary to shoot herself in the chest, she did not know what else to do. Congress was less than happy about Dennis interrupting their train of thought, as always, he stood his ground and the problem was resolved ... not sure if congress had anything to do with it, it does not matter. The bank forgave the loan, the woman recovered and was able to stay in her house.
I wanted to rest my brain from the excitement of November and watched 15 hours of a documentary series made for Polish television. It explains the plight of modern da y cultures which are harder and harder to maintain in modern society. It is worth the time spend, I learned a lot. It also explained why it is so important for us to become the people of the planet Earth once more.

The word I picked for December is not in the dictionary, neither Webster, nor Follette. It is slang. I think couples comfortable with one another use it: Honey Do.
As soon as the votes were counted many people had the Idea the president-elect had a magic wand and ALL problems were fixed. Rachel Madows at MSNBC suggested we would send her a "HONEY-DO" list, so she could let president elect know what people expected from him ... not that anyone thought about the fact that it is NOT January 20th yet ... but the list came in fast.
Dear Mr. President Elect:
On October 17, 2008, PRG published an open letter to the candidates calling for them to make preparations to end the six-decade truth embargo regarding an extraterrestrial presence engaging the human20race. This letter reiterates that request.
Your staff is now aware that letters, faxes and emails are arriving at your former Senate office and the Washington, DC transition headquarters. In general this correspondence will ask of you the following:
1) demand a full briefing from your military services and intelligence agencies regarding what they know and what they are doing about extraterrestrial related phenomena. If you are told you do not have the proper clearance for this information, replace that person with someone who has read the Constitution.
2) press for open and comprehensive congressional hearings to take testimony from scores of government witnesses who have already come forward with extraordinary evidence and are prepared to testify under oath.
3) formally acknowledge the extraterrestrial presence and finally end the truth embargo after 61 years.
4) make available for open development technologies which have been secretly studied and reverse engineered for decades with unlimited black budget funding. These technologies are derived from extraterrestrial vehicles and are now essential to overcome the environmental, economic and societal challenges of our time.
PRG is well aware of your intention to launch a high technology “New Deal” code named “New Apollo Project” to restore America’s economy. This massive program to subsidize green technology development, create jobs, expand the manufacturing base and reverse the trade imbalance will be likely accompanied by legislation prohibiting overseas hiring and offshore manufacturing.
All well a nd good, but it will not be enough. The challenges are too great and the response to these challenges too long delayed. It is essential the paradigm breaking technologies hidden in unacknowledged special access programs and sequestered behind the extraterrestrial truth embargo be included.
If you are in need of counsel to assist in you in these matters, you have but to turn to your transition co-chair, John Podesta. His efforts to end the truth embargo and release all relevant government documents date back to at least 1993 and the Rockefeller Initiative. PRG believes he is fully aware of the extraterrestrial presence and is committed to creating more open, transparent governance. In this he is in sync with the chief financial backer of his Center for American Progress think tank, George Soros.
Reach out to your party’s allies within the military services and intelligence agencies. When you take office conduct the necessary meetings with the cross agency committees managing the extraterrestrial presence issue. In the spring of 2009, before the truth embargo becomes your embargo, initiate the most profound event in human history and begin rebuilding the trust of the American people in their government and the standing of your country in the world.
Pulitzer prize winner and Author Alice Walker (The color purple) wrote the following open letter independently.
Nov. 5 2008
Dear Brother Obama,
You have no idea, really, of how profound this moment is for us. Us being the black people of the Southern United States. You think you know, because you are thoughtful, and you have studied our history. But seeing you deliver the torch so many others before you carried, year after year, decade after decade, century after century, only to be struck down before igniting the flame of justice and of law, is almost more than the heart can bear. And yet, this observation is not intended to burden you, for you are of a different time, and, indeed, because of all the relay runners before you, North America is a different place. It is really only to say: Well done. We knew, through all the generations, that you were with us, in us, the best of the spirit of Africa and of the Americas. Knowing this, that you would actually appear, someday, was part of our strength. Seeing you take your rightful place, based solely on your wisdom, stamina and character, is a balm for the weary warriors of hope, previously only sung about.
I would advise you to remember that you did not create the disaster that the world is experiencing, and you alone are not responsible for bringing the world back to balance. A primary responsibility that you do have, however, is to cultivate happiness in your own life. To make a schedule that permits sufficient time of rest and play with your gorgeous wife and lovely daughters. And so on. One gathers that your family is large. We are used to seeing men in the White House soon become juiceless and as white-haired as the building; we notice their wives and children looking strained and stressed. They soon have smiles so lacking in joy that they remind us of scissors. This is no way to lead. Nor does your family deserve this fate. One way of thinking about all this is: It is so bad now that there is no excuse not to relax. From your happy, relaxed state, you can model real success, which is all that so many people in the world really want. They may buy endless cars and houses and furs and gobble up all the attention and space they can manage, or barely manage, but this is because it is not yet clear to them that success is truly an inside job. That it is within the reach of almost everyone.
I would further advise you not to take on other people's enemies. Most damage that others do to us is out of fear, humiliation and pain. Those feelings occur in all of us, not just in those of us who profess a certain religious or racial devotion. We must learn actually not to have enemies, but only confused adversaries who are ourselves in disguise. It is understood by all that you are commander in chief of the United States and are sworn to protect our beloved country; this we understand, completely. However, as my mother used to say, quoting a Bible with which I often fought, "hate the sin, but love the sinner." There must be no more crushing of whole communities, no more torture, no more dehumanizing as a means of ruling a people's spirit. This has already happened to people of color, poor people, women, children. We see where this leads, where it has led.
A good model of how to "work with the enemy" internally is presented by the Dalai Lama, in his endless caretaking of his soul as he confronts the Chinese government that invaded Tibet. Because, finally, it is the soul that must be preserved, if one is to remain a credible leader. All else might be lost; but when the soul dies, the connection to earth, to peoples, to animals, to rivers, to mountain ranges, purple and majestic, also dies. And your smile, with which we watch you do gracious battle with unjust characterizations, distortions and lies, is that expression of healthy self-worth, spirit and soul, that, kept happy and free and relaxed, can find an answering smile in all of us, lighting our way, and brightening the w orld.
We are the ones we have been waiting for.
In Peace and Joy,

Almost forgot about Ebony and her dilemma, this was in my information box:
my car is psycho!!!!! It looked me out thinking that I was trying to steal it. Meaning can't start it w/o it dying that is if I can even get it to start thinking I was trying to steal it! I hate my anti-theft system.... why would I want to steal my own car? Thats why I have a key!... Anyway, I am towing it to the Chevy Dealership to get my cars main computer reset.
The car is brain dead, she put it out of it's misery all together and managed to buy one that was able to think. How ;DO you fit a square peg into a round hole? You make the hole bigger!
Love and Light
PS. My grandson is fine.
A new astrological cycle has started, here is a chart work up by Barbara Hand Clow. It was in my e-mail.
Sagittarius New Moon: November 27, 2008 View Chart
The New Moon in Sagittarius encourages each one of us to present our truths on the world's stage. What is integrity? We've confronted some aspects of our inner darkness, we've observed issues that have been coming to the surface within the collective shadow during the Scorpio lunation cycle, and now it's time to create new realities. This year's Sagittarian emergence is especially exciting for Americans as well as the whole world because the 2008 presidential election was a strong and clear vote for change. After living with eight years of ambiguity caused by the fact that George W. Bush20was never clearly elected, Americans hope to have a sense of direction again. Bush's attempt to make America the world empire is finished, and now we can address the imminent great changes that are indicated by the Mayan Calendar. Such great change requires the participation of all the people, and the new leadership coming in understands that. We can and will recover from the stultifying combination of the gross materialism during the Planetary Underworld (AD 1755-2011) and the elite control patterns that emerged during the National Underworld (3115 BC-AD 2011). [See The Mayan Code: Time Acceleration and Awakening the World Mind by Clow.] We are spiritual beings, not consumer robots.
We've entered Day Six of the Galactic Underworld (Nov. 12, 2008-Nov. 7, 2009). What a glorious entry it was as it rolled right in with the wild Taurus Full Moon of November 12-13! Partly because of the Full Moon, a great wind of change blew open closed doors, and the world responded enthusiastically to the American elections. Stunned by the building global financial collapse, Americans responded by bravely voting for change instead of retrenching in fear. Right after this Full Moon, the election, and our entry into Day Six, Gerry and I taught an intensive workshop that really integrated the new wave, and we had a wonderful time with everybody. We focused on our Neanderthal ancestors because I could see we all needed a clearing of painful shadows we were sti ll carrying coming from the Neanderthal extinction 25,000 years ago. We also considered the current dominance and competence that Cro-Magnon man has brought to our species. I felt guided to plumb the depths of the Regional Underworld (102,000 years ago to AD 2011) as well as all the Day Sixes during previous Underworlds. This profound clearance enabled our group to find a new vision. What are we really capable of as a species? What is the vision we need for the great times that have just begun? I think, since Barack Obama is being handed a bankrupt nation, we can surmise that the next stage of evolution is to be our movement beyond consumerism to become co-creative with divine forces and nature. The end of consumerism will surely be the end of war, greed, separation, and limitation. So, of course the vortex of the problem-the USA-is bankrupt! How perfect!
During the Full Moon, carried away by the cleansing high tides and emotional intensity, many people just accepted the painful truth-the time has arrived for each one of us to craft our personal stance in the midst of the stunning collapse. Because the time and the new leadership feel right, things we can't imagine still seem possible. The potential since mid-summer-with the opening of the Fourth World of the Galactic-is grandiose, and the first step is going to be your giveaway. Many of us have too much, while many others do not have enough. Have you noticed that you feel like you have too much stuff or too much to do? This is because the realities that need to emerge during Day Six are still encrusted with old patterns; we still are thinking in the ways of the past. Sometimes you may feel like a sprouting onion attempting to break through the soil to the surface underneath a rock, even under a building. When you feel trapped by old patterns, you may be finding that you are not able to resist just letting go, giving away, and surrendering to the new wave. Yet, you may feel like superman and superwoman during the fiery Sagittarian force this month, which could be risky. I will investigate this New Moon seeking ways that could help you be really effective within this confusing creative field. The planets and aspects during this New Moon offer us the guidance we all need until the coming Winter Solstice-because this subtle chart clearly reflects the nature of the energies that will inspire us to become the greatest we've even been.
Mars and Mercury, the two planets that show us how to get things done, closely conjunct the New Moon in Sagittarius, and this demanding group has no aspects to direct it. So, our minds (Mercury) are clicking quickly along while we integrate our feelings (Moon) about our new identity (Sun), and this process is aggressive and fiery (Mars). Overall, the stellium is like a royal flush in poker, a hand of cards that will be played out in ways we can't yet imagine. For example, this Sagittarian lunation could be the ideal astrological energy field for altering the antiquated interregnum process, the lame-duck time between presidents in the US. The last time we had a situation like this year's election was when Herbert Hoover was the Lame Duck and Franklin Roosevelt waited anxiously to straighten things out. Obama has been reading about that period when the financial structures of the US collapsed; this lunation could make it possible for the participants to take a higher road. In some form, overt or covert, this is probably what will happen, so watch for the signs that slip through the media.
One thing is certain about this New Moon: It will be possible for millions of people to intuit or actually discover evolutionary time acceleration; we can manifest new possibilities with strong group intentions. As some of you may know, Obama is using the Internet very effectively, so perhaps that is how such change could happen? Well, those of you who have been reading this site already know how much easier it is to handle current reality when you understand which issues from the past are being processed by time acceleration. It is time for you to spread this good news as far as possible. This New Moon perfectly describes our newly discovered hope, giddiness, vision, strength, and knowledge. It shouts out to us that we will be fiery, mentally brilliant, and inspired by some very high frequen cies that will greatly influence the whole winter. Also, being in the know can protect your finances. For example, auto manufacturing developed during the second half of the Planetary Underworld, and so a new form of it will emerge this year during Day Six; it will not be possible for GM, Ford, and Chrysler to go on as they always have.
Of course, if you are not careful, you could become ungrounded, get the flu, or just spin your wheels while the world whizzes by. For example, notice that there are no retrograde planets during the New Moon, and all the planets in the sky will be direct until Saturn retrogrades December 31, 2008. This has occurred because Uranus, the ruler of transformation and change, went direct a few hours before this New Moon. Uranus opens the Sagittarian floodgates and then runs away before he gets inundated, and we all face the wall of water! Be prepared for a wild and crazy ride under Sagittarius this year as Uranus lights the fire. Then, regarding the Winter Solstice that arrives toward the end of this lunation on December 21, 2008, there still are no retrograde planets. "Moving fast forward" will characterize the whole winter season, while the restriction on consumerism during Christmas 2008 will enhance the chaos and freedom. Normally, you get conned into shopping and acting nuts this time of year, but the money spigot is drying up. Many people will simplify and quiet down to take stock of the=2 0meaning of their lives during the holidays; those who do will feel how fortunate they really are.
While the Sagittarian fires rage to inspire the world, Pluto moves into Capricorn on the day before the New Moon-where he will reside until 2024. The patterns in the skies are showing us what we must do as a species. Pluto is the planet that drives us to be honest and take responsibility for the survival of our species, and Saturn-ruled Pluto changes the way systems are organized. A quick look at Pluto's transit through Capricorn in the past-before it had even been sighted in 1930 when it became an archetype that we can work with consciously-is helpful. Pluto was in Capricorn from 1515 thought 1532 when the Protestant Reformation occurred, which was the first big shift in Christianity since around AD 300. Pluto was in Capricorn 1762 through 1777 during Day One (1755-1775) of the Planetary Underworld acceleration, when industry developed and modern democracy appeared. The current ingress of Pluto into Capricorn coincides with Day Six of the Galactic Underworld, and Pluto's brief dip into Capricorn in early 2008 during Galactic Night Five has already helped crash a lot of outmoded financial systems. In light of this startling synchronicity, consider the incredible information in the following paragraph.
Day Six During the Nine Underworlds
During Day Six of any one of the Nine Underworlds, the creation of that Underworld flowers or blossoms; meaning, the whole purpose of that Underworld is revealed. During Day Six of the Cellular Underworld (2.5 to 3.8 billion years ago), the first unicellular life (Prokaryotes) emerged; during the Mammalian (126 to 190 million years ago), Pangea began to break apart and continents began to form while brain lateralization (left and right) formulated in mammals; during the Familial (6.3 to 9.5 million years ago), the earliest human lineages split from apes and chimpanzees and we stood up on two feet, freeing up our hands; during the Tribal (216,000 to 474,000 years ago), Neanderthal appeared as a species that was close to our current form; during the Regional (15,800 to 23,700 years ago), the Global Maritime civilization (Atlantis) sailed the seas and colonized the shores; during the National (AD 829-1223), the European and Islamic medieval awakening brought Europe out of the Dark Ages; and during the Planetary (AD 1952-72), America as potential consumerist global empire arose during the Cold War. I believe that during this current Day Six, we will move beyond consumerism and global warfare to manifest our creative potential. We will do this by discovering how to create without taking anything from anyone or anything else. The point is: the evolutionary force of Day Six aided by the cleanout of dysfunctional systems by Pluto in Capricorn will inspire us to end poverty and war by dis covering new ways to co-create with nature. Stunningly, like a creature emerging from a cave ready to hover over the world, Pluto newly arrived in Capricorn has no aspects. Since we will see the power of Pluto revealed during this lunation, perhaps astronomers should reconsider the way they tinker with the archetypes that the ancients knew are shaping our minds?
The stellium in Sagittarius and Pluto moving into Capricorn are very strong forces that will go solo this month ignited by Uranus direct; basically they are like levers that will shift whole realities. To see how we might get along personally in this field, let's look to the other planets. Venus and Jupiter are conjunct in Capricorn and trining Saturn in Virgo. The fifth and final Jupiter/Saturn trine occurred November 21, so the extremely supportive and balancing energy of this earthy trine will still be with us in December. Probably the main reason the financial collapse has not yet caused riots and civil chaos has been because Jupiter has been in trine to Saturn since March 2007-that is, during Day and Night Five of the Galactic. The Jupiter/Saturn trine in earthy Capricorn and Virgo is still so close, perhaps the patience of the people with incompetents like Paulson and Bernanke will hold out until Obama takes over. Venus joins Jupiter in this favored trine, so feminine intuition and wisdom will be strong this month; we're going to need it!
Also, Venus/Jupiter in Capricorn closely sextiles newly direct Uranus in Pisces, which suggests spiritual forces in other dimensions are really helping us now. This favorable sextile implores us to remember that we are living in a guided universe on a feminine planet that is ruled by the goddess-whether the men remember it or not. This sextile may cause many people to really understand that Obama has become who he is now because of his partner, Michelle-a lesson that Bill Clinton could not attain. The aspects between Venus/Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, and Neptune are exceedingly favorable for something that all of us must do now. We must recognize that a great drama is being played out now on the stage of life, while we are totally supported and secure. These planets exhibit the perfect geometrical configuration to support the radical intensity of Uranus direct and Pluto's entry into Capricorn just before the New Moon, and Mars/Mercury/Sun/Moon with no aspects. The weeks before the Winter Solstice are going to be truly memorable. Many people are awakening to deep compassion amidst the deepening troubles in the world, and with compassion, our heart dominates. We will need strong hearts to handle the tensions of Saturn opposite Uranus through 2010.
The first of five oppositions between Saturn and Uranus was November 4, right during the American election, which explains the global focus on the American election. Uranus in Pi sces (2003-2011) is inspiring the great spiritual awakening of the world, while Saturn opposing down-to-earth Virgo is doing a great job of crafting and directing the great awakening. This is why the majority of the people feel that this election is so important and inspiring, and this global connection will be strong throughout the Saturn/Uranus oppositions. The influence is indelible right now because Neptune in Aquarius (1998-2012)-which is also inspiring the great spiritual awakening-closely quincunxes commanding Saturn in Virgo. Neptune has an alchemical influence on the grounded and practical aspects of Saturn in Virgo. This configuration makes people feel like they must support change now, even if they don't like the idea, and it causes people to feel that Obama is a great spiritual leader as well as a very fine person, whether they agree with him or not. This configuration is so strong that it is going to be fun to watch the media try to tear Obama down in order to dishearten the people. This won't work now, but the media will probably play a nasty role in the world when Pluto and Jupiter form cardinal squares to Saturn opposite Uranus during 2010. Let's enjoy the good vibrations while we've got them, especially since the good feelings from Neptune and Chiron traveling on the lunar North Node during most of 2008 are beginning to separate. [Regarding house positions for Washington, DC, Chiron and Neptune are hovering right on the rising, and the Sagittarius stellium is on the 10th house. Like many other asp ects of this lunation, this indicates a healing will come from a shift in power.]
My last comment about this New Moon is that possibly no major aspects to Pluto and the Sagittarius stellium may cause them to function like dancing puppets in the sky representing "Lame Duck Bush" and all his quacking lackeys. We may see a weird show of little boys acting like big men who don't know what to do while the world finally sees that they never did in the first place. In light of this, this lunation may feel peculiar and suspended in time, especially since the 2008 election was a quantum leap in intelligence. If the Lame Ducks are spinning out of control, the inept posturing will probably come to an abrupt and uncomfortable halt during the Gemini Full Moon of December 12. There will be a potent mutable grand cross with Saturn in Virgo opposite Uranus in Pisces squaring Sun/Mars in Sagittarius opposite the Full Moon in Gemini; this grand square is the annealing furnace of the Saturn/Uranus oppositions, the great force for change. Saturn in Virgo commands us to stop doing what doesn't work, while Uranus in Pisces inspires us to take the critical leap; Sun/Mars in Sagittarius encourages us to go for freedom and change everything, while the Moon in Gemini forges the new path by verbalizing the new paradigm. Since this grand square could represent the people and leaders being overtaken by stultifying inertia, I will take a chance and=2 0comment that if that happens, you may see Obama just take over-either overtly or covertly. According to the Mayan Calendar, the time has come to forge the new alchemy. This grant cross is so energized and quixotic that I think it could trigger a cascading series of events that would lead to the end of war on the planet. Of course, as always on Earth, this grand square could manifest a violent series of actions that could create some events that would later be recognized as the events that ended war.
We have so much to hope for now because the money spigot is temporarily dry, enabling humanity to demand peace and end the waste of the precious resources we need to support life. Have a great New Moon, and be sure to check out the analysis of the Winter Solstice before the holidays!
