Quantum physics has led us to quantifying spirituality in a good way. Through understanding how we are contributing to this quantum field through our beliefs, allows our true nature to emerge: knowing ourselves and each other as the G word.
Dr. Toni Galardi
Lately, I have been studying the works of cell biologist Dr. Bruce Lipton and author of the groundbreaking books, The Biology of Belief:Unleashing the Power of Consciousness, Matter, and Miracles and Spontaneous Evolution. I was intrigued to find listed in his bio that he’s also an astrologer so of course, I had to look up his chart on astro.com. The signs of his personal planets in his natal chart happen to comprise the same archetypes we are all experiencing from the transiting personal planets in the last quarter of this year. Later in the newsletter I will share his chart as part of understanding your own completion in these last days of 2019.
What I find fascinating about Bruce’s seminal work is his study of epigenetics, which postulates that environment has the predominant influence on genes versus what we inherit biologically. To quote from his book, he asserts, “the cells read and respond to environmental information. These signals control genes and behavior. Through extension, it was apparent that living organisms evolved within and adapted to energy fields derived from the sun and planets. The expression of a daily 24 hour cycle, a lunar 28 day cycle and solar 365 day cycle manifested in the behaviors of almost all life forms comprising nature. It was at that time that I realized that astrology was, in fact, biologically expressed as astro physiology.”
If it is true that our health is more affected by the environment around us than anything we inherit, and and it is also true that we live in a galaxy surrounded by the vibrations of 10 major planets, then it makes sense that Bruce would have investigated planetary influences as well.
Further, besides his passion for epigenetics, the message that comes through consistently from Bruce is that if we do not shift from a paradigm of competition to a paradigm of cooperation and collaboration, we are doomed as a species. This is what the archetype of Libra is all about – harmony, partnership, and collaboration. His Sun and Mercury are in Libra. He further emphasizes that the chaos we are seeing in the world is the de-structuring needed to restructure. This is the nature of Scorpio and the symbol associated with Scorpio, the Phoenix bird. When the bird cannot fly higher, it descends into flames to be reconstructed into a higher form with wings for greater ascension. Bruce’s passion (Venus and Mars in Scorpio) for people to reinterpret the chaos as good news is very evident from his interviews. Side bar: he’s probably very romantic and a passionate lover as well. 😜
Taking his theories at the micro level of cell biology as to what impacts each individual cell to the macro of our collective exemplifies his visionary, optimistic Sagittarius moon.
Rewind, 25 years ago. Unfamiliar with Dr Lipton’s work, I was working on my own theory of evolution. When I gave my very first talk on the subject of “managing change in the chaotic 90’s” to a group of executives at ARCO, I was in my early 30’s. I was just beginning to formulate my somewhat esoteric change management theory for the time, and I cited in that lecture chaos theory as interpreted by quantum physicist, Illya Prigogene. It gave me the scientific information to explain this phenomenon I called a LifeQuake.
We have to deconstruct to reconstruct in a higher form. My passion, (which in part, is how astrology is used for effective change mastery) is helping you prepare for that deconstruction before you hit the wall, then assess what your highest soul contract is here now, along with the timing on when to take action.
Can you do that without astrology? Yes, if you are both highly intuitive and non attached to your current life with a plan for reconstructing the forms and definition of material security and/or relationships that are no longer serving you. The subtle beginnings of closing a chapter often starts with chronic boredom ( early tremors). On the emotional tone scale with ecstasy at the very top and despair at the very bottom, the transition emotion that is midway down the scale is boredom. If you take action, and become curious about what is calling you now, what wants to emerge from you now, you will move up the tone scale emotionally. If you self medicate your boredom ( including social media), you will spiral down the scale into a Lady Sings the Blues version of stage 2, depression and deeper addictions. Most people seek my coaching in stage 2 or stage 3, when their life is deconstructing into massive chaos. Boy, do I love it when you come to me in stage one, bored with your job or life and the process is not fraught with trauma and we are able to move through it more quickly.
What I love about Bruce Lipton’s work is that in studying cell biology, he discovered that the fifty trillion cells in our body are a community just like the outer world we live in. If they don’t all work together, cells break down and dis-ease develops. Therefore, for solutions to be instituted to reverse the climate disaster we are in, we must treat our own body as well as all planetary citizens as one community, one whole. The western held view that rewards individualism where 1% of the world’s population contains 90% of the wealth while poverty increases is not sustainable. It’s not just that it isn’t moral, it is not sustainable for any of us to survive in such a reality. In nature, animals take care of each other. Dolphins help the wounded dolphins heal. It is not survival of the fittest but what fits best. Thank you, Jonas Salk! We now know that Darwin was wrong.
When the model for The LifeQuake Phenomenon was downloaded to me at the age of 30, and I shared this idea that you first need to transform your relationship with change itself, then chaos, then discover your purpose, and then become an agent of change in the world, the feedback I received was that very few people are interested in becoming an agent of change. As some of you know, it was suggested to me to drop stage seven.
It is so exciting to me to hear quantum physicists and cell biologists explaining to people why we must come together as planetary citizens, beyond nationalistic borders from both a scientific and spiritual point of view. My unique spin on this is that if enough people discover and activate their soul purpose, then acting altruistically will come naturally, because we are wired for it … when we are soul centered, and unhooked. Narcissism comes from self centered listening to the cultural matrix for sense of self, versus listening from our center for living our calling.
Many of my clients have complained to me of being more fatigued lately. For some it has reached mild to moderate depression. I will personally be speaking on the Overcoming Anxiety and Depression Summit on Monday Nov 18th. https://www.avaiya.com/peace/?ap_id=galardi For those who didn’t catch the summit last week, there is a free replay of all the speakers next week: https://www.avaiya.com/peace/?ap_id=galardi from 10 am PST on Thursday, Nov 21st – 10am PST Saturday, Nov. 23rd.
Astrology Tips For Your Work Week
1) Well, if you live in the East, we have no void moon periods during the work – day this week. Those in Pacific time will have an afternoon void moon on Tuesday from 1:11 until 5:54 PM.
However, the moon is waning in its power until the new moon on Nov 26th and most importantly, Mercury stations on Wednesday at 11:30 AM PST but will not be out of its shadow until Dec 7th. Mercury will spend 102 hours (4 days 6 hours) at 11 Scorpio starting Monday as they appear to stop (station) and slowly begin to move forward (direct) again. It will still be in (penetrating, “die or transform Scorpio”) until Dec 9th. Around the time of Mercury changing direction or stationing, commitments can often be broken, technology is more sensitive to going wonky, and/or miscommunications can occur even more frequently. If you can wait to sign contracts, I would until after Dec 1 but this week, especially Monday – Friday, when Mercury is changing direction.
2) Please, if you value your relationships, do not using texting as a means of meaningful communication this week (or ever if it were up to me given how much miscommunication goes on even with those emojis)!
Misunderstandings are happening so frequently right now. The energy is not stable if you are not adaptable. The good news is that it is all preparation for the 2020 acceleration. Use this time to continue reflecting on how you want to express your soul purpose in the next decade. Mercury normally travels 2 degrees in a day. It will take an entire week for it to travel 2 degrees after Wednesday. This planet affects our brain and central nervous system.
You may find your effective decision making power is at its greatest advantage once we have the Moon helping Mercury move forward while in its building, waxing energy cycle in the new moon period between Nov 26 – December 10. The moon rules our desires and intentions.
3) Pay attention to your dreams. In my coaching practice, because I was trained as a Jungian psychotherapist, I am able to help my clients mine the gold of their unconscious mind through dream interpretation for greater creativity, health, and soul purpose direction. You also can receive warnings for your financial future, if you cultivate dream recall. I have experienced this myself, and acted upon the information before a potential disaster hit… so, you can too.
With great love and affection,
