Episode transcript:

Greetings all, welcome to Aquarian Diary.

I’m your host, John Irving.

It is February 22nd, 2024.

The Merriam-Webster Dictionary defines darkness as being the “total or near absence of light”, evil, and “a lack of knowledge or enlightenment”.

Many people have stated that humanity is currently engaged in an epic battle against the forces of darkness, the outcome of which will determine our collective future. This is on the public record in the spiritual and psychic community. Many scholars, academics, leading thinkers, historians, and commentators have also asserted this in recent years.

I myself have drawn astrological parallels to events that transpired in the 1930s and 40s.

After the devastation of World War I, the Treaty of Versailles imposed harsh austerity and reparation measures on Germany. This led to a deep-seated resentment and anger amongst the German population.

In the 1930s, Germany embarked on a mission to restore its power by rapidly expanding its military capabilities as well as its territory. To “make Germany great again”, ironically.

At the time, Germany’s increasingly aggressive, hostile, and expansionist posture was alarming. However, many countries were still reeling from the horrors of World War I, and the prospect of rearming and engaging in another widespread conflict was unwelcome. Thus, the strategy of appeasement emerged, which is commonly associated with British Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain.

It would take until 1939, after Germany seized Czechoslovakia, for Europe to finally admit that appeasement had been a dismal failure and that they had no choice but to forcibly respond to German aggression. By then, Germany had developed and deployed formidable military forces.

By the time World War II ended, an estimated 70-85 million people, or about 3% of the 2.3 billion people that comprised the global population in 1940, would perish. Much of Europe lay in ruins.

That many found the prospect of yet another war in Europe unthinkable is understandable given the circumstances back then. But the denial of reality of German aggression and repeated breaches of its treaty obligations was plainly self-evident.

Hindsight is 20/20, as the saying goes, and we can only speculate about what might have happened if European leaders had responded differently.

Today, the world faces many challenges related to a resurgence of know-nothing populism and far-right extremism.

The most powerful country in human history faces an existentially critical election in less than nine months’ time.

The Republican agenda, should they win, is nothing short of alarming. This openly illiberal agenda is now on the public record. It is no longer a matter of speculation or conjecture.

It is not alarmist to categorize it as Christo-fascist-theocratic-authoritarianism, as many prominent thinkers, academics, scholars and commentators have effectively stated in their own words.

Such an outcome would have profoundly dangerous consequences, geopolitically, militarily and economically, and this is of grave concern as well.

For example, Vladimir Putin has ambitions to regain control over former Soviet-Bloc countries and many on the political right are blithely indifferent to his unprovoked invasion of Ukraine.

Meanwhile, China has been adopting an increasingly aggressive posture and advanced space-based weaponry threatens nuclear deterrence mechanisms that have kept large-scale conflict in check since the 1960s.

It is vitally important for people to understand what is happening and why, to be informed, and to identify and rely on trustworthy and credible sources of information.

As many of us are aware, there is a great deal of propaganda, disinformation and misinformation being widely disseminated through social media and elsewhere.

While all this is happening, we simultaneously face daunting and unprecedented global environmental challenges that have not yet been addressed in any remotely adequate or meaningful way. This status quo is a direct result of disinformation and regulatory capture by financially vested interests.

Compounding this is a public that is extremely poorly informed about the severe consequences and implications of inaction which are already manifesting and will continue to play out for millennia.

I articulate this not to disempower you, however, I have made a compelling case that being ill-informed, misinformed, disengaged, or apathetic can have catastrophic implications.

If we accept the premise that the standard definition of darkness is ”a lack of knowledge or enlightenment”, and that we are, in fact, engaged in a battle against darkness, then it logically follows that the antidote is knowledge and awareness.

The dark side would like nothing better than for us to be disengaged, uninformed, unaware, indifferent and apathetic. For them, that would be the best case scenario, as they would face no resistance to implementing their agenda.

Thus, it is well known that a large part of their playbook promotes distrust in institutions and undermines or discredits truth, knowledge, and reality itself. A disoriented, uninformed, and confused public is a malleable and easily manipulated public.

If, for example, people don’t get out and vote in the next American election, the outcome will be nothing short of frightening for the whole world. This is not hyperbole. Numerous European leaders have expressed dismay and alarm at the prospect of undesirable election results in November.

If people think that political outcomes don’t affect them personally, they are very ill-informed or deeply misguided at best.

To get people out to vote, they must be motivated.

To be motivated, they must know what’s at stake.

To know what’s at stake, they must be informed.

To be informed, they must follow the news and be aware of political developments.

Let us hope that this is not another Neville Chamberlain moment for humanity. The stakes are even higher now.

Please encourage your friends and loved ones to be responsibly informed, aware, and actively engaged, if at all possible. This is a small burden considering that the future of humanity and all precious life on earth rests in the balance.

Ignorance and apathy is bliss until suddenly it is not, as history has very clearly demonstrated. Over and over.

I know that many of you who are empathic or intuitive have sensed for years that we are rapidly approaching a critically important juncture, as have I.

I urge you to trust your inner knowing and wisdom. Do not turn your back on your inner light, your inner truth, your inner voice.

This is a test we simply cannot fail.

This is not a drill.

Again, for more detail, check the episode description for other episodes or articles that are related or that I mentioned.

And if you’re interested in a reading with me, I’ll put a link to that as well. I have a 20% off special on currently.

Many sincere thanks to everyone who supports me, especially my YouTube members.

Thank you very much.

Take care, all the best, and I’ll talk to you again soon.

Episode transcript:

Greetings all, welcome to Aquarian Diary.

I’m your host, John Irving.

It is February 28th, 2024.

Before I get into the main topic, I want to draw your attention to the fact that lately I have been posting on my community tab here on YouTube. Kind of like little astrological weather forecasting, when there’s some interesting transits, conjunctions, or stelliums occurring.

I can’t do all of them, obviously, because it would be extremely time consuming, but I pick ones that I think are particularly relevant and I try and provide a spiritual perspective on these. Because I know many of my listeners are interested in those kinds of things, and that they’re also quite sensitive and empathic. And having a little bit of an understanding of some of these things can be quite helpful, I think.

I’m going to also start posting them on my Facebook page, and I might even add them to my website, although I’m not 100% sure yet. But check them out, they’re quite interesting and people seem to appreciate them.

My perspective on astrology and transits is a bit different than most of the people in the mainstream, and of course the people who listen to me are interested in similar things to me, so you might enjoy my perspective. I’ll put links in the episode description for how to access those.

Also I have been getting so many downloads lately about topics I want to cover here, and I have a to-do list where I add these things, and the flood of ideas that have been coming to me is just unbelievable.

I don’t know how I’m going to get through it all, or even if I can. The topic list is growing much faster than I am presently capable of addressing. Anyway, I find that very interesting. Like this morning, there are three things I thought I could talk about, and that maybe I should, but I’m like, how the heck do I do that?

But there’s one in particular that I think might be helpful to people.

By the way, stick through to the end if you can, there’s a bit of an Easter egg.

I want to provide people with a bit of reassurance.

When we look at what’s happening in the world right now, it’s kind of like we’re at peak crazy. We have the election coming up this fall in the United States, which has just monumental implications. And there are all of these things happening around the world like on a daily basis.

I read quite a bit because I just feel like I need to be informed. And there are so many things that I read on a daily basis now that are kind of jaw-dropping that it’s a bit overwhelming. Everything from the global environment, to politics, to demographic and social trends. It’s quite stunning. Like I said, overwhelming, in fact.

But I thought today I could offer a fairly high-level perspective on this. It might be easy to forget while we’re being barraged with all of these events and developments.

We are in the midst of a huge, huge, epic paradigm shift collectively and personally as well as we make this historic shift from the Age of Pisces into the Age of Aquarius. And I’ve talked a lot about that here before. It’s kind of my focus.

I’m interested in the big picture. What’s driving this? Why is this happening? What does it mean?

And this morning I was thinking about this and I was thinking about how, again, we’re experiencing a clash between Piscean Age values and Aquarian Age values.

Now we know which direction the trend is going, right? It’s not going backwards. That’s not going to happen. It’s just impossible.

But at times, it can look like that movement is being blocked or thwarted.

If we think about the astrological symbols, in the Age of Pisces, there was this overriding theme of surrendering your will or your agency to everything from some ideological dogma or religious dogma or a religious institution or organization.

And those structures and institutions or organizations quite often became corrupted or exploitive because power corrupts.

But nonetheless, there was this habit in the population of, like I said, surrendering their will. And if we look back historically at many of the trends and events that occurred over the last 2,000 years, we can see the consequences of that, the downside of it.

On a higher level, like on a really spiritual level, it could be surrendering your will to the Divine, which has phenomenal potential. But there were very few human beings that actually pursued that in a very highly evolved way.

Mostly, it was people, like I said, surrendering their agency to some dogma or institution that effectively abused them or manipulated them. Or they fell into the maya of illusion and deception, which are lower expressions of Neptunian or Piscean kind of energies.

Studies have shown that people with more conservative worldviews are less prone to changing their minds. They are more closed-minded. And their persona is more fear-based than, say, liberals.

Liberals, on the other hand, are more open to new ideas and experiences and they welcome evolution and change, whereas conservatives traditionally preferred the status quo and were uncomfortable with change.

A conservative sometimes would simply subscribe to a dogma or ideology or religious philosophy or worldview as a way of anchoring themselves. Even if it wasn’t necessarily based on truth, at least they felt they had a solid foundation. And if you think that through, you can think of countless examples of how that’s played out.

So here we are now moving from the Age of Pisces into the Age of Aquarius.

The ruler of Aquarius is Uranus. Uranus is the antithesis of rigid structures and dogma. Its core intent is actually to break up or liberate us from encrusted and confining situations and beliefs. It is all about change and evolution. And things happen very quickly, if not abruptly.

Now if you’re a conservative, that kind of energy threatens you at a core fundamental level. I’m not talking about a person’s true essence. I’m talking about their paradigm.

So Uranus will struggle for freedom from confinement or restriction. Again, Uranus is the ruling planet of the Age of Aquarius. And recently, as I have talked a lot about here, going back over two years, Pluto is making its move now into the sign of Aquarius.

So there is going to be a lot of power and deep-rooted psychological transformation, birth and rebirth, with matters and issues pertaining to Aquarian values.

Aquarius is all about expressing our own unique perspective and agency. Again, it will rebel against rigid hierarchical structures and things like patriarchy, which we experienced a lot of while Pluto was in Capricorn.

There is also a social component to this, because Aquarians have very high ideals. They believe in things like egalitarianism and social justice, and they are very rational and intellectual. So they are not inclined to believe in or follow dogma for the sake of dogma, or tradition for the sake of tradition, unless it serves some legitimate or higher purpose.

So we have on the one hand a segment of society that is very resistant to change, if not fearful of it, and that would even prefer to maintain structures, even if they are illegitimate or corrupt, because the alternative is very scary to them.

So as this energy increasingly permeates our reality here on Earth on the collective level, there is a very reactionary backlash occurring to this at the same time. Again there is a core constituency that fits in that category.

Somehow they are going to have to get used to it. I don’t know how that’s going to manifest. I really have a hard time understanding how people who are wedded to dogmas are going to manage with this kind of energy.

As I was describing earlier, the flood of events now is almost hourly. It’s change, change, change, change, change, and it’s going to be like that for a very long time.

So how they manage, I have no idea. But change is upon us and change will be the only constant from here on in.

So those of us who are more liberal or less based in fear and more willing to embrace change and evolution will fare better during this cycle.

As far as I’m concerned, those rigid worldviews and paradigms are doomed. Mark my words. It’s not going to happen. It’s game over.

Now this may take generations to fully play out, maybe even centuries, but the movement is going in that direction. And this means that we will break all kinds of borders and boundaries culturally, politically, socially, economically, technologically, cosmically, and so forth from here on in. That’s going to be the norm.

And again, just to emphasize it one more time, the rigid paradigms and structures from the past are doomed. People aren’t going to put up with institutions, policies, politicians, governments, and so forth basically telling them what to do if it doesn’t make logical sense. It’s just not going to happen.

So that’s the reassurance for you.

So this is why right now it’s so confusing. Because we can see the problems all around us, but we don’t yet have the solutions.

These kinds of changes don’t happen overnight. It’ll take some time for us to evolve and adapt to this new way of being. There’s nothing minor about this at all. It’s major.

Finally, like I’ve been saying in some recent episodes, the charts that I’m looking at show a lot of activations for people coming up in the next year or two. And I’m not suggesting that those apply to the whole world.

I think that what’s happening is that the people I’m speaking with are a bit more advanced or they’re people who will be playing thought leader or leadership roles as the new paradigm starts to manifest more clearly here on earth. Not everyone is going to be leading the charge.

Think of like early adopters. They’re ahead of the curve. And then some years later, everybody else catches up and whatever it is becomes popular, or mainstream.

But these patterns I’ve been seeing suggest that we actually start getting into gear in the span of a year or two. That’s where we start laying down these new foundations I’ve been alluding to.

That’s not to say that some early foundations may not be being laid now, but I think that that’s really when we’re in like first gear. And right now we’re just starting to move forward. We haven’t gained a lot of momentum yet, but I think that’s coming.

So if you’re one of those people, I recommend that you start dreaming about what the new reality is going to look like and how it will manifest in fairly pragmatic terms. We need to start dreaming into reality the future.

I’m not saying it’s necessarily time to act on it, but just allow, and be open to, grounding these new energies. And I’m getting strong chills as I say this.

So wow. Oh… yeah, absolutely. It’s time for us to start dreaming in the new age.

So I’ll leave it there for now and I hope what I’m saying is useful to you.

But just remember, everything is on the table right now. There isn’t an aspect of our society, of our culture, of our paradigm, of our daily lives, of our political, social, or economic lives that are not going to be profoundly affected by this truly epic transition that we are just embarking on.

And the other key point is that no, we’re not going backwards and we’re not staying the same.

And I also have to say that I have been connecting to this personally now for a week or two. And when I do, there’s a tremendous amount of joy attached to this. Like real, high-level joy.

Like this has been a very long time coming.

Again, for more detail, check the episode description for other episodes or articles that are related or that I mentioned.

And if you’re interested in a reading with me, I’ll put a link to that as well. I have a 20% off special on currently.

Many sincere thanks to everyone who supports me, especially my YouTube members.

Thank you very much.

Take care, all the best, and I’ll talk to you again soon.

Episode transcript:

Greetings all, welcome to Aquarian Diary.

I’m your host, John Irving.

It is February 26th, 2024.

You’ll want to look at your screen in order to follow this episode, so if you’re listening to this by podcast, you may want to watch my video on YouTube.

Sigh… Why am I sighing?

Well, it’s because I have to play the role of party pooper, or Debbie Downer. And party poopers are never popular.

People don’t want to hear that they’re wrong or that they’ve been misled, or that they’ve been engaging in motivated reasoning.

But a topic that I’ve touched on previously has come up again. The last time I did this, I kinda just tacked it on to the end of an episode on a different topic. But I’m approaching it here directly.

And that has to do with solar cycles and solar activity.

First of all, we need to understand the way that the internet works, especially platforms like this one.

The way they work is that the more views you get, the more money you earn from advertisements that get placed in your videos. I don’t know what the exact number is, but I dunno, say you get 100,000 views on a video and you earn a thousand bucks. Whatever that figure is, I just made that up.

So people are incentivized to create videos that will get a lot of views, because that’s how they make money. And if you’re unscrupulous, you don’t care what you put out there. All you care about is getting as many views as possible.

And one of those kind of clickbait type topics that always seems to make the rounds is the subject of solar activity.

Yes, solar cycles exist. Solar cycles generally run an 11-year cycle.

The magnetic poles of our sun flip about every 11 years. The beginning of the solar cycle is when sunspot activity is at a minimum. The middle of the solar cycle, or the solar maximum, is when there is a peak amount of sunspot activity. Like I said, it’s about an 11-year cycle.

Now people will proclaim that this heralds significant events on earth. And yes, there are some implications to solar maximums, like geomagnetic activity on earth that may affect satellites and communications, or even power grids in some extreme cases. We may see increases in the aurora borealis in the northern hemisphere, and things like that.

But it’s important to put this in context, and it’s actually quite simple to do. We can track sunspot activity quite easily simply by observing the sun, which we can do with telescopes, satellites, and so forth. And we’ve been doing this for quite a long time, because of the implications to our communications systems and so forth. I’m not going to get into a highly technical explanation of that.

The point I want to make is that we need to look at what’s happening now, relative to what’s happened in the past, so that we have some context.

The NOAA, or the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, posts fairly real-time data on their website. You can go and look at this yourself.

If you look at your screen, the graph that I’m showing illustrates the current level of solar activity. As you can see, the solar minimum occurred in about 2020, and the sun is projected to reach a maximum in 2025.

Fair enough. We are in a period of heightened solar sunspot activity.

Now let’s zoom out a little bit and look at a longer time span.

The next graph shows activity going back to 1980.

As we can see, the solar maximums around 2000-2002 were significantly more active than the current cycle. If we go back to 1990, that period was even more active.

Now let’s go back to 1900.

Wow! Look at the level of activity in the late 1950s. There was dramatically more solar activity at that time. In fact, the level of solar activity right now is relatively low compared to past cycles over the last 120 years.

In the episode description, I will put a link to this chart. You can go look at it for yourself.

If you mouse over the chart and use your scroll wheel, you can extend the x-axis or the time span that you want to look at.

My point here is that generally, there’s nothing particularly unusual about the current level of solar activity. The levels of activity currently are not even close to levels of sunspot activity in the past.

So, the lesson here is that what’s going on right now is not abnormal in any way, that some people will promote things without even doing basic fact-checking, and that many people are motivated to produce clickbait that will generate a lot of traffic.

It bothers me when people are being deceived or misled. Everyone makes mistakes. We all do. I make mistakes. Anybody incarnate makes mistakes.

Myself, I have an Errata page where if I make a mistake in an episode, I will document it and publish it. There’s not a lot on there, but that doesn’t mean that there won’t be. But at least I try and be straightforward and honest with people. And if I do make a mistake, I’ll admit it.

It doesn’t benefit me to play this role of fact-checking or being a party pooper. In fact, probably the opposite, because I contradict popular or trending narratives. But like I said, I don’t like to see people being misled.

It’s great that people are curious about these kinds of things, or wonder about them, but we have to question the motivations of people who make extraordinary claims without even doing a few minutes of research.

One other point I mentioned in a previous episode that I’m seeing activations showing up in people’s astrology charts over the next year or two, and that trend has continued. It’s quite something. It’s pretty cool. I think the next couple years are going to be very interesting. So stay tuned.

Also, we are in eclipse season. There are eclipses in March and April.

On March 25th, there is a lunar eclipse at 5 degrees and 7 minutes of Libra.

On April 8th, there is a solar eclipse at 19 degrees and 24 minutes of Aries.

Eclipses occur several times every year, so they’re not earth-shattering, typically, unless they fall in close aspect to a significant point in your natal chart, in which case they can have very significant influences.

The conventional wisdom is that we feel these up to 3 months in advance, and then they play out up to 6 months afterwards.

I usually look at near-term eclipses in my readings for people, so that’s something you might want to consider.

Again, for more detail, check the episode description for other episodes or articles that are related or that I mentioned.

And if you’re interested in a reading with me, I’ll put a link to that as well. I have a 20% off special on currently.

Many sincere thanks to everyone who supports me, especially my YouTube members. Thank you very much.

Take care, all the best, and I’ll talk to you again soon.

Episode transcript:

Greetings, all.

Welcome to Aquarian Diary.

I’m your host, John Irving.

It is February 23rd, 2024. [This was actually published on Feb 24]

I’m doing something here today that I’ve never done before. It’s a bit of an experiment. I’ll see what the response is like.

And that is, I am republishing an episode that I originally published on November 22nd of 2021. That’s over two years ago.

Why am I doing this?

First of all, it relates to my prior episode. See the episode description for links.

Secondly, it has hardly any views.

Thirdly, I’ve come to realize that very few people go back and listen to old content on YouTube because, of course, the feeds are full of everything that happened in the last few hours.

Fourth, it came to my mind this morning as I was reflecting on my last episode. And I listened to it, and I hadn’t listened to it in a very long time, and I thought, this is actually really good. So it’s good content, and it’s relevant.

Fifth, the quality of the recording back then, I was just using my phone, the quality of the recording is really poor. So I cleaned it up a little bit. I did not alter the content whatsoever other than cleaning it up, sound-wise. It’s exactly the same words. I didn’t cut or change a single word in it.

I would like people to consider actually perusing some of the many episodes I published previously.

I mentioned this one to someone I communicate with quite a bit, and they hadn’t even heard it and thought, oh, that was really good.

So yeah, I want to draw some attention to some of my older content because I still think it’s valuable and useful and maybe helpful for some people.

I’ll also put a link to the original in the episode description.

I hope you enjoy this, and I welcome your feedback.

So here goes.

This is the episode from November 2021.

And it was titled, “No, You Are Not Responsible For Every Aspect Of Your Reality.”

Hi guys, it’s John here.

It is November 22, 2021.

I have a very short window of opportunity to record here, and there’s something that has been just sitting within me that I need to express.

Now I realize that lately I have been posting quite a few things that are critical, shall we say. That’s the energy that’s up these days. I mean, reality is what it is.

And I’m not always going to be posting stuff that is kind of skewed in that direction, I would imagine. But this is what’s going on right now.

Anyway, there’s another thing that has repeatedly come to my attention over a very long time and again was touched recently.

And that is this whole notion of whether or not we are completely responsible for our reality.

Well, from my intellectual perspective, this defies both logic and common sense. And let me give you some examples.

For example, natural disasters, repressive political regimes, economic crises, changing economic circumstances, the sudden passing of a loved one unexpectedly, or a pet, or the breakup of a relationship.

Or I could go on and on and on with examples where you could then look at them and say, “Well, is the person who’s experiencing those things really responsible for that? For that, you know, those difficult or challenging or unfortunate or unpleasant experiences? Really?

Am I responsible personally that, you know, President 45 was who he was? Am I personally responsible, you know, for the climate crisis?”

Of course not. It defies logic.

So you know, to some extent, yes, perhaps before we incarnated here, we knew that we would face certain challenges at certain times in our lives.

Perhaps we have karma that needs to be resolved. Absolutely. Doesn’t… that notion does not offend me. But to suggest that people are entirely responsible for whatever they experience just seems blatantly ridiculous to me.

And the reason that it’s offensive is because it can be, you know, to the person who’s experiencing something very difficult or challenging, somebody that we should be having compassion towards, or that needs help or assistance, to suggest that they are responsible for everything bad that’s happened to them is beyond insulting. It’s a form of victim bashing.

And you know, I think that, you know, we come into this plane of existence, which is full of paradoxes and full of crazy things beyond our control. And we all have free will here.

And apparently, you know, a lot of people have said that the earth is one of the few truly free will based places in the universe. But it’s also the most challenging.

And that would make sense because, you know, other people can do things that are not expected or that are deleterious or damaging or consequential to us that are beyond our control and vice versa.

And I know, for example, I have experienced some things that I was told from multiple sources were not in my soul contract. Difficult, very difficult things that weren’t necessarily in the cards for me, but that just happened because there is a certain degree of chaos and unpredictability here in this dimension. Therefore, those things were not within my control.

And you know, I’m tempted to beat myself up about, you know, when things like that happen. But you know, that may just be a fault of my own perception.

But what really ires me about this insinuation that people are entirely responsible for whatever they experience is, like I said, that I keep picturing somebody who’s in a state of suffering, like somebody who has recently lost a loved one unexpectedly, perhaps to this, you know, plague that we’re experiencing. And them going away thinking that they are somehow responsible for these events, which in fact are beyond their control. And this is like insult to injury, basically.

So yes, there may be some things that are within our control and some things that we are personally responsible for in our reality, but there may be many others that simply are not.

I have, I have known, I know many people and I’ve, and just because I do astrology, I’ve, you know, often look at people’s charts and we discuss transits and things that are going on and you know, like for example, when Saturn transits your moon signs, that’s typically a very difficult period.

And some of these people have had things that have happened to them that were just kind of jaw dropping, you know, bad. And I would never say to these people “Oh, that’s your own fault.”

Good God, like this is like if somebody said that to me, actually somebody said something like that to me once and I just about jumped across the table and I, I pretty sure my face turned beet red almost instantly. And I left that place shortly thereafter and never returned because it’s insulting and not helpful at all.

So I would… you know, astrology is another thing, you know. Like I said, you know, there can be times in our life where certain things are going to happen that we just… You know, you have a Uranus transit to your Venus or to your Moon or to your Sun or to your Ascendant, stuff can happen that is like completely out of the blue.

And you know, you have no way of knowing that something like that’s coming. Like even if you’re an astrologer, you can never really predict what Uranus is going to do because it’s almost always surprising by definition. That’s its nature.

My point though, really is, you know, we should be calling people out when they’re suggesting this.

Yes, to some extent or another, we have some influence over our lives. But like for example, is everybody going to be a celebrity or a king or a queen on planet earth at any given time? Is everybody going to be rich? Is everybody going to be famous? Like, you know, I don’t personally desire those things, but some people do.

But it’s just mathematically impossible that everybody is going to experience those conditions at any given point in time, especially at this point in human history. Where, you know, there are many barriers to people being able to live their ideal life, you know, or if somebody is born into poverty or born into a country that is ravaged by war, you know, are they individually responsible for that? Give me a frigging break. That’s just… it’s absurd.

So yes, we can control certain things within certain parameters.

We’re all born at a certain time and we’re imprinted with the energies of our astrology chart that kind of governs, you know, what kind of things we’re going to do, you know, like somebody has to be, you know… plow the streets in the winter if you live in an area where it snows, you know… I mean, not everybody is going to be a billionaire.

It’s just, you know, or, you know, is everybody in a, living in a country where they’re suffering from drought? I mean, you know, are they all responsible for that? My God, it’s just, it’s infuriating.

So you know, there’s, like I said, there’s some things we can control and there’s some things we can’t.

If you’re born in Bangladesh, you know, and nothing against Bangladesh, the likelihood of you living the same way that somebody who’s born in the suburbs of, you know, Atlanta is far less by definition. You know, and yeah, you could argue, like I said, that the Soul chose those conditions when they incarnated. But there’s a much greater likelihood that if you are born into certain countries that you’re going to not live as long as you would elsewhere or have as much money or whatever. But none of us are any less equal than the other in truth.

So you know, let’s stop this victim bashing, basically.

Like I said, I’ve known many people who’ve gone through some very difficult and trying circumstances, and the last thing I would say to those people is that “Oh, you know, that’s your negative thinking!”

Oh my God, you know, and then there’s, here’s the other side of that, right? Like me right now, I’m upset about this and I’m expressing myself. There’s a place for being upset and unhappy because if we didn’t get that way, sometimes nothing would ever change. It would just be a stasis, right?

People sometimes need to get riled up to affect changes in the world. And sometimes it takes pushing people into uncomfortable situations to get them to actually change because people are kind of lazy or they don’t, you know, they want to stay in familiar territory or whatever the case may be.

So it’s okay to be upset about some aspects of the world that we live in right now. If we didn’t and if we’d all be enslaved and we’d just be like bags of jello, you know? So it’s okay to not be happy about things in the world.

You know, the last thing we actually need right now is more complacency. When we see injustice and when we see people being abusive, we should do something about it.

We shouldn’t say, “Oh, well, you know, so-and-so’s husband is beating her because she’s thinking negatively.” God!

Okay, so have I said what I need to say?

This is really important. You know, this is one of the things about the spiritual community.

Like on other dimensions, I’m sure that our thoughts can probably manifest instantaneously in like a nanosecond. And so, yeah, there’s a lot more leeway perhaps on other dimensions for being able to affect our reality.

But down here in three-dimensional reality where we’re dealing with three-dimensional objects and situations, there’s limits to… we operate within parameters.

I think I’m going to stop there. I’ll leave it at that for now.

We’ll talk again soon and one of these days I won’t be in a pissy mood.

Alright, talk to you later.

Bye.

Episode transcript:

Greetings all, welcome to Aquarian Diary.

I’m your host, John Irving.

It is February 20th, 2024.

This is just a brief PSA, or Public Service Announcement.

As I have mentioned in recent episodes, we’ve been experiencing a tremendous amount of vacillation of energies. One day the energy is up, the next it’s down.

For me, yesterday was a very high energy day, today is a low energy day.

And I woke this morning with that at the very forefront of my mind.

As I’ve been reflecting on this, my thinking has evolved where I now believe that what’s going on is that we are being hit with waves of energy. There are pulses.

Why would this be?

I think what’s going on is that we’re having waves of the new energy coming in, but at the same time we need to kind of purge the old energies. The up days are the vitalizing energies that are coming in, and the down days are more of the purging energies.

We cannot hold the new energies totally until we have released a lot of the former energies.

If you are familiar with my work, I relate this to the recent shift of Pluto into Aquarius, and the old energy is the Pluto in Capricorn energy.

What’s happening is that we are decompressing. We were compressed during the Pluto in Capricorn cycle from 2008 until recently, and we are being elevated by the Pluto in Aquarius energy which is just commencing.

Again, there is one more period of Pluto retrograding back into Capricorn in the fall of 2024, so the transition will not likely be complete until sometime after then.

There’s a phenomenon in geology called glacial rebound.

Earth’s last glacial period ended about 11 or 12 thousand years ago, and there are still parts of the Earth’s crust that are rebounding from having been under miles of ice for 100,000 years.

This notion came to my mind this morning when I was reflecting on this. The timescale of our shift will be much much faster than that, so don’t panic. It’s just an interesting metaphor.

I noticed yesterday that when the energies were high, there was a lot of laughter. Humor can be very uplifting.

Think some recent episodes by Jon Stewart or John Oliver that kind of went viral in recent days. Very funny. Or former guys’ ridiculous sneakers.

I’ll also include a link to a very funny story from Boing Boing about a couple misguided fundamentalists and their unfortunate experience emigrating to Russia. Setting aside the dangers they may face, it’s really funny.

I’ll put links to those in the episode description.

I’m sharing this because, if it weren’t for my conversations with friends who are experiencing similar vacillations of energies, I might think I was crazy or unhealthy.

But many people I’ve been speaking with are experiencing the very same thing, and I thought it would be helpful for you, my listeners, to receive some validation if you are also experiencing this.

No, it’s not just you.

I’m making this diary entry here because I think it’s important to document this experience that we’re going through collectively.

As usual, I always look forward to your amazing comments and feedback, and I really appreciate it if you share my content or videos with others, as well as of course liking and subscribing to my channel, which really helps me as well.

I have a tremendous well of topics that I will discuss and that I want to produce episodes on, but I’m in a bit of a holding pattern because the energies are shifting so constantly, it feels like the ground moves every day.

The landscape is changing very quickly right now, and I think that’s also a function of this transitional phase we are in.

Again, I do see the fact that we are starting to laugh a lot about the cringeworthy foibles of those who represent the more reactionary elements of this drama. I think that’s a really good sign that things are turning around. Strong chills here.

Peace be with you as we move along this bumpy ride.

Again, for more detail, check the episode description for other episodes or articles that are related or that I mentioned.

And if you’re interested in a reading with me, I’ll put a link to that as well. I have a 20% off special on currently.

Take care, all the best, and I’ll talk to you again soon.

Episode transcript:

Greetings all, welcome to Aquarian Diary.

I’m your host, John Irving.

It is February 17th, 2024.

Wow. Just wow. This recent period has just been astonishing.

I thought I would talk a little bit about that because I have made a number of posts on my community tab and been discussing some of the themes that have been coming up for me, and it turns out that they resonate with others as well.

We went through a little period recently that was kind of a mixture of complete exhaustion and then coupled with dramatic bursts of energy, like the energy would fluctuate and vacillate pretty dramatically.

That’s kind of a hallmark of Uranus, the ruler of Aquarius, where Pluto recently ingressed on January 20th. So we may need to be prepared overall for pretty dramatic and wild swings of energy insights, themes, and so forth.

I spent some time personally reflecting on this, like why am I completely exhausted one day and then hypercharged the next? And this is what I think is going on.

For me, this period from 2008 until just recently, when Pluto was in Capricorn, was energetically really heavy and it felt oppressive and stifling and confining and restricting and limiting. It even included a degree of fear.

And if we look at what was happening in the world, that’s understandable. We had these oppressive reactionary forces within the power structures of our societies who were threatening to repress us or force their worldview onto us, contain us, control us, dominate us.

And so it’s kind of like we were walking around hunched over, you know, thinking we’re going to get whacked, either on the material or energetic levels. So it’s kind of like there was a barrage of energy shooting down upon us and we had to put up our shields to protect ourselves and keep kind of like a stiff upper lip, be very sort of stalwart and stoic as we’ve been going through this period.

And then after a while, we got used to that. So we’ve been in this very kind of defensive posture for like 16 years.

And let’s face it, many of us have been brutally persecuted in past lifetimes for sticking our necks out. So we have good reason intuitively to be cautious or reserved about expressing our true identities and beliefs.

This frequently shows up in the natal charts of people I do readings for. And I’ve heard stories of people’s past lives that are truly shocking and deeply disturbing.

At the same time, recently, just recently, and a bit last year, when Pluto was in Aquarius for a few months, there was a heightening of the energy. So I also sense right now that there is this heightened energy. It’s resonating on a higher frequency.

But at the same time, we still have that kind of lingering residue of heavy energy that we have been fighting with, which has been exhausting for so many years.

So although the energy has shifted, we haven’t quite acclimated to it yet. And there’s still that lingering kind of fear and hesitation and reservation because we were in the Pluto and Capricorn energy for so long.

Five days ago, I published an episode about this really remarkable conjunction of Mars, Venus, and Pluto at the first degree of Aquarius. And of course, out of curiosity, I wanted to see how events might take place in the world that would reflect those energies.

So I’ve been checking the news, and of course, there’s been a lot of dramatic developments this week, like some really stunning developments that very much fit within those themes, some of which I posted on my community tab here.

The problem, in fact, wasn’t that I couldn’t find them, correlations I mean, the problem was that there was just too many of them. And I can’t just flood my community tab with all this stuff, it would just overwhelm people. So I kind of got like, “Whoa, it’s just overwhelming.”

But, there’s a really interesting theme playing out here, which is that a lot of the kind of karmic reckoning that I had predicted going back a year ago or more is starting to occur. And that gives me hope for this new phase that we’re entering, that justice for all the crimes and abuses of power that occurred with Pluto and Capricorn are now starting to play out.

So this gives us hope that this insanely crazy period that we just went through over the past 16 years is over. It’s coming to an end.

And there’s going to be a comeuppance, and to some degree, things are going to be more normal and hopefully, people will be a lot less inclined to go off the deep end with the batshit crazy stuff once they see other people being held accountable for these kinds of things.

And I expect that over the next few years, we’re going to see a lot of people facing things like prosecution for their actions and misdeeds, much of it of a criminal nature, if it wasn’t organized crime.

There was a weird thing going on while Pluto was in Capricorn where people just thought that they could get away with some of the most outrageous things. And they just kept upping the ante and raising the bar because they were getting away with it.

But that, like I said, seems to be coming to an end, thank God.

So there’s going to be a lot of drama around that, but for a change, it’s going to be good drama because those of us who are based in reality and uphold higher moral and ethical standards are going to be buoyed by that. We’re going to find this very uplifting because at least we now know that there is some justice, that there are limits and constraints that will keep us from going off the deep end completely.

It’s interesting because I often do prayers or set intentions for exactly these kinds of things, and I published a whole bunch of them here as shorts on my YouTube channel. This stuff is real, it’s really happening. Finally, right, because the energy is now conducive to that.

So the initial phase of this is going to be just putting things back into order and back into place.

Then the next phase will be how do we move forward beyond and into new realms of exploring how this energy flows and manifests out into society and the world. That’s when we get into the real phase of progress.

First we have to restore order from the chaos, then we can start being more proactive, and that’s where we come into play.

People like you, if you’re listening to me, you’re probably ahead of your time. You’re a change agent. You came here to help move humanity forward into this new age, and we’ve been being battered and hammered for quite some time now.

And so, like I said, we’ve developed this defensive posture, but soon we will be in creation mode instead of defense mode.

There’s going to be a lot of people who are going to need guidance and direction and instruction on how to work with and handle these kinds of energies, because this is a paradigm shift, which is another thing I’ve talked a lot about here, and paradigm shifts can be very disorienting initially.

It’s a whole new reality. This is a shift of Ages. It’s something that humanity hasn’t experienced for over 2,000 years. It’s huge. It’s virtually unprecedented, especially now that we have all this technology that we can utilize to communicate at the speed of light, which is, again, Pluto in Aquarius ruled by Uranus.

So I find this all tremendously exciting, although lately it has been exhausting.

I would encourage people in their spiritual practice to be clearing energies, and thought forms and beliefs, that were relevant between 2008 and 2024, but that no longer fit into this paradigm we’re moving into.

It’s probably going to take us a bit of time to trust that, but overall we need to do some housecleaning internally so that we can embrace and embody this new energy that is actually here right now. We’re in the hangover stage of this shift of phases of energies. So that’s the good news.

I think that seeing people held accountable for all their misdeeds, what we’ve seen recently is just the beginning.

Watch what happens over the next while. We have another period of Pluto dipping back into 29 degrees of Capricorn for 10 weeks in the fall of this year. That’s the last shot of that energy where people who are not tuned in are likely to make some really big mistakes that they will regret later. If they think for a minute that that is the status quo, they are wrong. So I think that’s the final test of this period of shifting energies.

I want to point out one other thing too, which is something that’s just come to my attention recently.

For some reason I was drawn to go and listen to some of the episodes that I published here a long time ago. I have stuff on here that goes back over two years now. And I don’t normally do that. I don’t go listen to old episodes, especially of my own.

But I was pretty blown away by how spot on I was, how accurately prescient or prophetic I was. Go back and listen to some of my older episodes.

What I publish here has a lasting kind of quality. It’s not all just about in the moment.

And I was quite impressed with how accurately predictive a lot of those themes I’ve talked about are.

In fact, I was listening to someone else a few days ago and they were talking about all this stuff and I was thinking, I did an episode on that like a year and a half ago. And I was kind of like “What is with that?”. You know, I feel like I’m really ahead of my time.

So if you’re bored, and I know everyone is super busy and overwhelmed these days, but a lot of the content I have published here, even going back a long time, is very much accurate about what’s happening here now and what themes are going to be in play.

And that was always my intention, was to build a body of work that was foundational and that would be relevant for a long time.

I know that the trend right now is for people to be very much into immediate gratification and hyper-stimulation, constantly going from one thing to the next. In other words, being ungrounded.

But there’s overriding patterns and themes that are at play here that are really important in terms of understanding what’s going on, on a bigger level.

So in short, we’re in this shift of energies. We have to kind of let go of that past energy. We don’t need to be fearful or anxious in the same way that we used to. So we need to clear out that kind of energy, which will allow us to make this shift more easily.

The tide has turned. A lot of people are going to be held accountable for how they abused their power while Pluto was in Capricorn. Fantastic.

And in the not too distant future – probably more actually in the time frame of when Pluto really settles into Aquarius for the next 20 years, which is in the fall – and I’ll put the dates on the screen, that’s when the real moving forward energy really kicks in and we can completely leave behind all of the fears, apprehensions, dotes, and the defensive posture we had to assume while Pluto was in Capricorn.

Also, a lot of what I’ve been saying here has been coming up very powerfully in the readings I’ve been doing for people lately. It’s showing up in their charts and in their transits.

Like literally I did a reading for someone the other day and I saw these signatures in their transits about how they were coming into this period of time where they would kind of be awakened and come into their mission, their sole mission for this lifetime. There’s trigger points that indicate that they are stepping into action.

Like there’s a lot of us who have been kind of like sleeper agents and over the next year or two, a lot of those people who have been laying low, living their day-to-day lives, are going to start being activated so that they can play a role in bringing in this New Age, the energies of this New Age.

And I’m getting really strong energy as I say this. I couldn’t be more thrilled about predicting that, honestly.

The kind of people who listen to me are like that in a lot of ways. I’ve seen that come up a lot in readings lately, like I said, that there’s a lot of people who are going to be kicked into action.

A lot of people had to be in that kind of dormant state because it was too dangerous for them to come forward and express their full potential and full being. The energies wouldn’t allow it. It was too heavy.

Very interesting, the timing of all of this and how it coincides with Pluto in Aquarius, which I talked about over two years ago here.

So I find this very exciting. I’m not saying we’re completely out of the woods. We’re not, but the energy is shifting very fast.

And that’s another characteristic of Pluto in Aquarius. The energies in Aquarius, because it’s ruled by Uranus, can move phenomenally fast and suddenly.

I also want to make a point that I think that one of the themes here as well in terms of accountability is going to be corporate malfeasance with respect to things like price gouging.

Powerful corporations, especially like monopolies, and there are way too many of those these days, they fit within the Pluto, Transit, and Capricorn umbrella.

And I think that we’re going to find that there’s going to be a lot of comeuppances in the corporate sector as well.

And let’s face it, many of them have been also lobbying and supporting a lot of the policies that we would consider to be anti-liberal or anti-democratic. And there’s going to have to be some accountability there.

Way too much power has been consolidated into the hands of a few.

And often it is these monied corporate interests who are actually driving the agenda, if not literally crafting policies, and financing and lobbying the politicians, who are effectively in many cases puppets or mouthpieces for these vested interests.

So the corporate sector is going to be in for a bit of a rude awakening as these energies shift because clearly they have abused their power and their influence for reasons relating to unfettered greed and narcissism without taking the welfare of society at large into account. And they’re going to have to be put in their place, and there may be some hard lessons learned there.

People keep talking about how the economy is great, but corporate profits have been stratospheric recently, and that accounts for a lot of the economic activity. Meanwhile, a lot of people have been struggling to survive.

Robert Reich published a chart the other day, which I shared on my YouTube channel, which showcases this in very dramatic terms. I’ll put that on the screen as well.

And if we’ve learned anything during this period, it is that we must be constantly engaged and vigilant about issues like social or economic justice or protecting liberal democracies. We can never take our rights or freedoms for granted.

One other point.

There’s some weird things which I’ve talked about before with YouTube comments. Comments sometimes go into like a Bermuda Triangle.

And it bothers me because a lot of people on my channel write these amazing comments, very thoughtful comments.

And I really respect that, you know, that people take the time to do that and that they do so eloquently.

So when comments just aren’t visible or don’t show up or nobody can see them or whatever, it bothers me because I feel bad because people, like I said, take all this time to do this and then nobody sees it.

So if that happens to you, just understand that it’s not me. I don’t have control over this.

I think some comments get flagged for some weird reason, even though I have very rarely seen comments that were truly offensive.

So don’t take it personally is what I’m trying to say. And I apologize for that, but it’s completely beyond my control.

There’s a lot of really weird quirks with the YouTube commenting system. Some people know this, but some people may not.

I just want you to know that I really respect and appreciate your effort. So please accept my apologies if that’s happened to you.

Again, for more detail, check the episode description for other episodes or articles that are related or that I mentioned.

And if you’re interested in a reading with me, I’ll put a link to that as well. I have a 20% off special on currently.

Many sincere thanks to everyone who supports me, especially my YouTube members.

Thank you very much.

Take care, all the best, and I’ll talk to you again soon.

Episode transcript:

It is September 12th, 2021.

I want to… there’s a lot I want to talk about.

As I’m working, I have this constant stream of thoughts going through my head in great detail about what I would like to express.

And then, you know, sometimes I question myself or I will set it aside and come back to it later to make sure that it is what needs or would benefit from being said.

And one of the things that’s been up for me a lot lately is psychic phenomenon and spirituality.

There’s a real sort of burgeoning or growing community of people who are interested in and expressing psychic abilities on social media, including YouTube. And I got interested in that for a couple of reasons.

One is, as I said in my introduction, I published a New Age magazine back in the mid-1980s for several years in Atlantic Canada, covering three provinces or one, two, three, four provinces.

And at that time, I, you know, part of our community that was supportive of this publication about, you know, it was all about spirituality.

And by the way, that was inspired by the Harmonic Convergence, which was a fairly significant event at that time. I think it was 25 years before 2012.

And so the intent of that publication was to bring together people from across the region to connect them in reality. This is way before the internet as we know it. And that succeeded very well.

It was, you know, it was not an insignificant publication. It was 64 pages, full-size magazine. So it required a tremendous amount of work to put that together quarterly, four times a year. And it was run by myself and my partner at the time.

And of course, within that community, a subset of that community was the psychic community.

And so we became friends with quite a few psychics, and they would often hang out with us or we would visit them and socialize with them and so forth.

So I was exposed to a lot of those kinds of people back in the day. And a lot of them were really lovely people. One in particular who was a truly lovely person.

So this phenomenon is not necessarily new to me that we’re talking, what is that, 35 years ago? Am I right? Yeah, 35 years ago or so.

And myself, of course, I have had personally very powerful… sort of what could be described as psychic experiences, going back to my childhood. Many of them to my early childhood, and even through my teens and all along throughout my life. So you know, it’s interesting. So that’s one thing.

One is, see, there’s a connection between the New Age movement that occurred back then, which was kind of a big thing for a while. And then this new phase of awakening that’s going on now, which seems to be happening on a larger scale, but it has a lot of similarities to what occurred back in the 1980s and started then.

And that, of course, is all what happened then was also linked to what happened in the 1960s with the Uranus-Pluto conjunction in Virgo. Where there was this whole countercultural movement that arose amongst young people who really questioned the status quo.

And I actually became friends with and hung out with a lot of those people locally in this part of the world who were very involved in that. I was a bit younger than them, but they became my friends.

And one of them in particular became my mentor for many years. He was actually a very accomplished academic, had multiple degrees, had been on the dean’s list and studied philosophy and a wide range of subjects. Very academically inclined, but also very sort of open and spiritual at the same time. So he introduced me to astrology back, this would have been probably ’83 or something. Yeah, probably.

I spent two years when I was in my early, early, early twenties, like just right around 21 or 22. I lived in the woods off grid with no electricity or running water in a little cabin, so more like a shack, but it was beautiful. And that was a really fantastic experience.

I lived in the woods off grid with no electricity or running water in a little cabin, so more like a shack, but it was beautiful. And that was a really fantastic experience.

It was on a co-op, which was communally owned land where they had 125 acres of pristine forest. And it was… that was an amazing experience for me to have.

So anyway, back to the thing about the psychic stuff.

So yeah, because of my association with the New Age movement back in the 1980’s and sort of again, witnessing this, what seems to be an awakening that’s occurring on a larger scale on the planet.

We now have social media and we have the internet and so we’re all kind of instantaneously connected and we have all these platforms for communicating and publishing and broadcasting as I’m doing right now. So I’m fascinated by it for historical reasons.

I’ve always kind of keep tabs on what’s going on. And I also have kind of an innate ability as has been demonstrated throughout my life to be a little bit ahead of the curve. So what I’m often interested in becomes mainstream five, six or seven years later than when I actually pick up and pay attention to it.

I was early adopter of desktop publishing, early adopter of computers, early, very early on the internet. I was on the internet when it was just bulletin boards, but pre-internet when you had to dial in through a modem and connect to a dedicated service and all that stuff.

And you know, bitcoins, all kinds of things that I have picked up on very early on. I mean, I took an interest in bitcoins when they were below $50 each, for example.

So yeah, so I see this phenomenon now and I think it’s really cool.

Also the other component to it was with the former president, 45, I saw as a very clear and present danger to planetary security and the biosphere. Because I felt that if that administration was re-elected, it would have been catastrophic for humanity for all kinds of obvious reasons that I’m not going to go into here right now. That’s a separate kind of conversation.

And so, you know, in sort of out of desperation and concern, somehow managed to find my way to a lot of the psychics and readers who were discussing this. And like many others, I was looking for some light at the end of the tunnel or some hope about what the heck was going on. Like, why was this happening?

Who would have thought that we would be on the brink of outright fascism in the United States, which is the most powerful economic and military country on the planet? And that’s what it was a very, very, very serious threat. And all of many… of my friends and colleagues who are similarly inclined, were extremely concerned about this situation.

I sort of saw it as kind of the dark side, getting increasingly desperate because more and more light was flowing down to the planet and illuminating the planet and lifting up the planet. And the dark side was basically freaking out, going like, you know, holy crap. So it got increasingly extreme.

And if we look at what’s going on right now, this polarization that we’re seeing politically and socially, you know, I think that’s self-evident. The dark side is terrified because if there is enough light and illumination here on this planet, then it can’t do what it does anymore.

The dark side is terrified because if there is enough light and illumination here on this planet, then it can’t do what it does anymore.

It just, there will be no place for it on Earth. And it will be in effect sort of banished in many ways. And that’s what we want. You know, anything that isn’t done with love, compassion and empathy is just not right.

And so, you know, that’s not fascism. Fascism is the opposite of that. Or a theocracy or whatever, or the combination of the two.

And so anyway, back again to the thing about the psychic phenomenon.

One of the things I wanted to share about this is that, first of all, I have met many, many, many psychics over the years.

And I’ve met psychics who are so incredibly gifted that they literally knew what you were thinking and would speak to what you were thinking without you even opening your mouth about it. And I’ve had that experience multiple times.

And sometimes these people are so wide open psychically that they literally have to kind of detach from society quite a bit. Because if you think about it a little bit, if you were that psychic, it would be very hard to function in the world because you know everything that somebody is thinking all the time. It would kind of drive you crazy. So a lot of them kind of would sort of isolate themselves socially.

And they’re out there and some of them you’ll never hear of. You don’t even know. I just for various reasons was able to cross paths with such types of people.

But what I wanted to say more importantly was that, and this is not to be… I’m not intending this to be harmful or critical towards anybody. But that just the statement I want to make is that just because you have psychic abilities does not mean you’re enlightened.

…just because you have psychic abilities does not mean you’re enlightened.

I’ve met many psychic people with powerful psychic gifts who were not particularly evolved from my perspective. And you know, having discussed it with others, I was not alone in my assessment.

And that’s not to be disparaging towards anyone because we’re all at somewhere on the continuum. But the two aren’t necessarily inextricably linked.

And now often as someone does spiritual practice, whether it’s meditation or whatever your spiritual practice is, you will increase your sensitivity. And you’ll open up your chakras more and your gifts, those kinds of gifts will emerge naturally because we actually have all of those abilities naturally. All of us have those abilities naturally. It’s just that often they are shut down in childhood because our culture and our society doesn’t value them or even disdains them or is frightened by them or doesn’t understand them.

Now I’ve also met people, I’ve, hmm… do I bring up another contentious issue? Maybe. I’m probably going to be saying a bunch of stuff that may piss people off, but I don’t really care. I don’t have a problem with being critical and I’m going to address that as well.

But then, you know, where, okay, so where I was going is… if people… the more spiritual practice that you do, the more evolved you are, you do tend to have more and more psychic and intuitive abilities because like I said, they are actually in fact natural.

And what you’re doing is you’re tapping into extrasensory perceptions or other dimensions of yourself because we are multi-dimensional. We are not just the physical, which is really the root of spirituality, is the knowledge and discovery and exploration of that. And so, yes, there are some people who are very evolved who have psychic abilities. I’m just saying that each person has to be sort of looked at individually.

Now why does this matter?

It matters to me because back in the New Age movement of the 1980s… and by the way, there was another spiritualism movement in the late 1800s that people may be interested in… and that was… the Theosophical Society was a large figure in that movement. And so these movements do come and go. You know, Alice Bailey and the Blue Books and all that stuff came out of that period of time. And it was often a blending of Eastern and Western sort of philosophies and traditions, spiritually or religiously even in some cases.

And but back to my point about the New Age movement was that what happened over time with the New Age movement is that it kind of got, it fell into glamour.

…what happened over time with the New Age movement is that it kind of… fell into glamour.

The reason I brought up the Theosophical Society is because, to my knowledge, they started to widely use this term “glamour,” and what glamour meant or represented was falling into the illusion or the maya of reality.

So that, you know, there is a concept of spiritual materialism where, you know, the ego is being satisfied, you know, through its association with, you know, sort of glamorous kind of phenomenon or stuff that’s like, “Whoa,” you know.

And what happens is that, and in the case of the New Age movement, it kind of got trivialized.

And then there’s all the sort of bottom feeders that come in and try and, they see a trend and they want to capitalize on it financially or materially. So you know, they start to produce all kinds of junk and products and everything.

And then over time what happens is that it becomes discredited. Because it becomes very materialistic and status, you know, you get these figures that arise and they’re not necessarily people who are really, you know, best representative of these movements. And it falls into disarray and loses its essence.

So the concept of glamour – which I’m not actually describing very well because it’s actually quite a complex subject – but it is sort of materialism applied to spirituality. To the point where the materialism becomes the spirituality, you know, to the adherent or to the person involved.

And what I’m trying to get at is that what happens is that this is a way of kind of discrediting an entire movement. And that’s what happened to the New Age movement.

…this is a way of kind of discrediting an entire movement. And that’s what happened to the New Age movement.

It became so materialistic. It became about products and it became about, you know, trivial things and material things and goods and services and people trying to make money from it in all the different kinds of ways. And hangers on and others who would ingratiate them, try and ingratiate themselves with prominent figures in the movement and so forth. And it just became the kind of thing that ultimately nobody with a lot of integrity wanted to be associated with.

Now, and honour, right, or dignity… people with honour and dignity and integrity. So they then distance themselves from it and poof, there goes an entire movement.

Now as far as I’m concerned, that’s actually how the dark side tries to undermine these movements is through things like materialism and glamour.

And so I’m not pinning that on the psychic community per se, but I am starting to see patterns that resemble what occurred after, you know, in the, after the New Age movement that emerged in the 1980s.

And this brings me to the role of critical thinking. And so like, for example, not too long ago, somebody published something and there was an error in, a critical error in this, in this presentation. It wasn’t malicious or deliberate, it was just, you know, we all screw up. I mean, I screw up all the time.

And then I noticed somebody, one of the listeners commented that “Oh, I don’t want to be negative, but…” Okay? And then they pointed out the error, which was in fact an error. And this is, this was not, this is not a matter of opinion. It was literally, you know, factual error.

“Oh, I don’t want to be negative, but…” And then they pointed out the error, which was in fact an error.

And I’m like, so, you know, we have to be careful of not being discriminating in a variety of ways.

And we have to not… because there’s also this kind of strain of anti-intellectualism that sort of seems to pervade the spiritual movement, because you’ve got a lot of empaths who, who function on very much on a feeling level.

And you also have people who are, you know, and then on the other end, you’d have sort of more of the people who approach it more intellectually. Where in fact, it probably should be a balance between the two, because God gave us brains and, you know, we should use them.

And so one of the other points of contention or concern that I have is how people sort of often will drop their guard intellectually about things, because they don’t want to rock the boat or be perceived as being negative.

…people sort of often will drop their guard intellectually about things, because they don’t want to rock the boat or be perceived as being negative.

Well, what that does over time is it literally undermines the credibility of the entire movement. Because you then become… there’s the risk of becoming associated with the lower elements of the movement. Or those that are just hangers on or opportunists trying to cash in and make money from it.

And then the whole thing just loses all, like nobody will want to be associated with it, because it’s just garbage and bullshit.

And I’m aware of time here, because I don’t want this to be too long, may already be, because these are big, big subjects, you know, that you could talk about each one of these sort of main points I’m bringing up. You could do like an hour on each one easily.

But I wanted to point out that basically in a lot of spiritual traditions, and traditions go way back, right? Like Eastern spirituality, you know, has been around for centuries and millennia, right? This is, you know, this quest for enlightenment is not new, right?

You know, do your reading, go read “Autobiography of a Yogi”, which probably should be, it’s something I would recommend everybody read.

Or “Sidhartha” by Herman Hess, you know, oh boy.

Or “The Convoluted Universe, Book One” by Dolores Cannon, which I have recommended to many people over the past couple of years.

I’m not so much interested in all the earth mysteries and stuff like that, because to me there just seems to be some sort of glamour around that, like I’m interested in sort of the hardcore spiritual components of things. You know, I’m just not doing this for entertainment, you know.

Where was I going with all that? Probably at the end. But just that, you know, standards.

I’m not saying that we attack other people when they say things that don’t make sense or that don’t sit right with us or that are even objectifiably wrong.

But I am saying that we need to maintain some critical thinking abilities and apply them so that people just don’t slip into a lot of bullshit all the time.

…we need to maintain some critical thinking abilities and apply them so that people just don’t slip into a lot of bullshit all the time.

I have actually heard many things from prominent figures in this sort of burgeoning community of people that were just flat out wrong, and in some cases actually really bad, like quite alarming.

And nobody calls them out on it, because they don’t want to be perceived as being negative or be ostracized or whatever.

Now, again, it’s not about attacking somebody, because we all make mistakes. And God knows I probably have made about a hundred already, and this would be my third sort of broadcast. And I will almost certainly make some more in the future. I mean, everything I’m saying could be wrong, and I’m open to that.

Like if somebody can show to me that I’m just off base, I welcome the criticism, assuming I will concede that it’s accurate and warranted, and I will retract statements if I make them and they turn out to be completely factually erroneous.

I don’t care, because I’m not egoically really attached to beliefs in the way that somebody who might be religious would be, where if you attack their religion, they perceive you as attacking them. I don’t really care.

So I’m just arguing for quality and consistency and integrity, most of all.

So what else did I want to say about the psychic stuff? I think I said everything I need to say.

Like I said, I feel like I could talk about this stuff for a very long time. There’s just so much to say about it, but I do realize or recognize that most people just can’t sit there and listen to something for hours.

I do. I listen to, for example, there’s a podcast called “The Astrology Podcast”, and I don’t always agree with their approach, but I will listen to it, and they’ve done episodes that are three hours long. That doesn’t bug me.

I listen to stuff while I’m working.

I very rarely actually watch anything on YouTube, by the way. I almost always just listen to it, because I can listen and do other things. It’s very rare that I could sit in front of my computer or my phone or whatever for an hour and stare at the screen. I mean, come on.

So that’s kind of one of the reasons I’m producing this more as a podcast, is for that reason.

As I said, I took an interest in the psychic community because they were kind of talking about what was going on politically in the United States and offering insights and reassurances about that. And the ones, most of the ones that I was listening to at the time were right.

So I was kind of glued to that for a long time, because like I said, I recognized that if that administration got reelected, it was kind of game over for the climate and probably game over for the planet and probably civilization. Big deal. But now, so Biden is now the president.

There’s still all kinds of crazy, crazy stuff going on in the US. Their Pluto return is going to be exact. I believe it’s next winter, this winter coming. So it’s just… it’s just nuts.

However, what I’ve been finding lately is I’m less and less interested in the characters and figures on the Republican side who a lot of the readers are reading on, because I really don’t want to be associated with that energy. And I kind of feel like even though the crazy hasn’t stopped, the Biden administration is doing a pretty good job under the circumstances of having a handle on things. And so I’m sort of starting to turn away from that.

There’s also in the psychic community, I find there’s an increasing amount of what I would consider, you know, idle sort of chit chat or, you know, talking about celebrities or whatever. That I have no interest in that personally.

There’s some that are sort of tuning in and bringing in trying to bring in channel messages from higher dimensions. That’s interesting.

There’s some that are asking questions of the higher from the higher dimensions, from Spirit that concern people. I find that still quite interesting.

But just generally, I’m noticing that like… I notice that when I listen to the discussions about figures, challenging figures on the Republican side of the equation, that it actually brings my energy down. And I don’t want to do that anymore. So I’m kind of sad because that provided me with a lot of entertainment in the past, like countless hours. And I probably listen to all the people that you or many of you may also listen to.

And so, you know, I think that one of the other main points about all the psychic stuff, I think that the reason it’s important to talk about it is because as more and more people awaken, they’re going to be starting to experiencing those, you know, the veils are thinning and very much so. This is, I mean, a lot of people have been saying this, but I’ve also experienced this myself and seen this myself.

…it could be quite shocking to somebody who’s comes from a very traditional worldview or paradigm to suddenly start having psychic experiences.

And a lot of these people are going, when they started experiencing these – what to them will be strange phenomenon – are going to be looking for guidance and reassurance that they’re not going crazy, and some understanding about what the hell all this means. What does this mean? Right.

I’ll do another discussion on paradigm shifts because that might be helpful to people. And… but I’m expressing all that because, one, I see the purpose of it.

I understand why a lot of these people have been coming forward and putting themselves out there and that, yes, that serves a purpose. Because it could be quite shocking to somebody who’s comes from a very traditional worldview or paradigm to suddenly start having psychic experiences. You know, that could make people go crazy.

And… but how they apply their knowledge and their experience, I think really the realm is the primary realm. I mean, if you’re not just trying to get eyeballs and high view counts and whatnot, is more on the helping people understand what those phenomenon are. How to manage them, how to work with them, how to refine them, how to do spiritual protection, energetic protection and so forth. Those are the kinds of things that would be constructive.

I guess if I’m a barometer of the public, like I said, I’m becoming increasingly less interested in the crazy people on the Republican side of the equation and what they’re doing because they really represent a lot of the darker aspects of humanity. And like I said, I find that when I’m tuning into that energy, it literally lowers my own energetic state.

So I’m looking, and interested in, content that is not just uplifting, but informative.

If any of that makes any sense or is applicable, I’m just sharing that with you because like I said, I tend to be a barometer of the, if not what’s happening now, of what’s coming.

It was brought to my attention that there was something I had omitted that I intended to include here today.

And that is, there’s a phenomenon kind of going on right now, which I’ve spent a lot of time listening to, which is “remote viewing”. And I’m expressing, I want to express that personally, I have some qualms about that, some concerns.

Like, for example, in all of the studying and practice that I’ve done, it was always emphasized emphatically that permission was required in order to do any kind of energetic work on somebody else.

…it was always emphasized emphatically that permission was required in order to do any kind of energetic work on somebody else.

Now, I also happen to have an 8th house Sun and Mercury, so in my own case, privacy and not being interfered with energetically is something of concern to me that I take very seriously. So any kind of energetic work I have had done on me or I have done with others has always been done with consent, explicit consent.

Now I think the, if I understand it correctly, and I haven’t studied this in detail, if I understand it correctly, the people doing remote viewing would argue that, or hold the position that they are gaining permission on a higher level.

However, I ask you, the listener, to ask yourself if you would want to be remote viewed by somebody else who didn’t necessarily understand your circumstances, your life story, or might lack the context that would inform about who you are and why you are the way you are and so forth.

Because often, you know, people are quick to judge other people based on superficial impressions or limited impressions or erroneous assumptions and so forth. So there’s always the concern that a casual observer may not actually reflect the full reality of a person or situation.

I don’t necessarily have qualms about doing remote viewing about situations, and perhaps less so with public figures, because they have opted to put themselves in this position where they would obviously be under a great deal of scrutiny. And there would be, well, not complete scrutiny, because of course there’s a lot of things that go on behind the scenes that we know nothing about.

I mean, it’s an interesting phenomenon, and I’m not saying yay or nay entirely to it, but I will, to be completely honest, I will say that I do have reservations about the concept.

Now, in my own case, I have stated to my Guides and to the Universe that I do not want to be remote viewed. And not to conflate the two, but I also do not want to be energetically interfered with or manipulated by external forces without my explicit consent.

So if that holds true and it applies… and let’s say somebody wanted to, you know, interfere with me energetically somehow or remote view me, and I’m not saying those are the same things. Remote viewing and interference are not the same thing, but then theoretically there would be karmic consequences for doing so.

And so that’s a concern as well, right? So I think that this is something that should be really considered and perhaps discussed.

I see that, you know, we all want to know what’s going on behind the curtains of various political organizations and administrations and so forth. And to some extent I would say that we actually do deserve to know these things, but there are rules in third dimensional reality governed primarily by Saturn, and Saturn also rules karma.

So it’s just something that has always kind of a little bit bugged me in the back of my mind, and I’m not expressing this to be critical or negative of anybody.

A lot of these people I very much respect, and I sense that they have… that their intentions are good, but I do think that every being – I’m getting chills, and I wish there was a better word for that, I’m getting somewhat chills here saying this – I do think that every being deserves a certain degree of respect and privacy.

…every being deserves a certain degree of respect and privacy.

You know, there’s a lot of figures here on the planet that are doing some stuff that we, you know, do I dare tread where angels would fear to? That are doing… I’m going to save that for another day.

Anyway, I’ll leave it there.

I’m not condemning anyone, I’m just… I just wonder, I suspect that there are others out there who don’t… where this doesn’t quite sit very perfectly with them either, right?

So I’m putting myself out there just to express my qualms or reservations.

And yeah, my higher self might be like, “Oh yeah, I don’t care, you know, this is just another incarnation of me.” But this part of me does.

I don’t, you know, there’s a lot of things that have happened in my life between me and other people that are nobody else’s business.

And yeah, so I’m tacking this on to the end of this broadcast, which is getting really long.

So hopefully somebody will listen to it.

All right, bye.

Saturn, Chiron, Collective Trauma and Darkness

I discuss why we need to more openly address our individual and collective wounding, and to do so courageously, in order to free us from cycles of trauma.

I present this through the lens of the astrology of Saturn, Chiron and Pisces or the 12th house, and dark psychic or occult experiences.

Episode transcript:

Greetings all, welcome to Aquarian Diary.

I’m your host, John Irving.

It is January 28th, 2024.

What I’m going to talk about here today may seem a little bit out of left field.

I actually have a long list of really interesting topics I want to publish. I’ve gotten a lot of downloads recently, many of which are really interesting.

Especially in the last half of 2023, I had a lot of challenging Saturn transits. A whole slew of them. And Saturn is transiting my 12th house, which in and of itself is rather challenging. So it’s been very hard and very interesting at the same time.

Now one of those transits that has been going on has been transiting Saturn conjuncting my natal Chiron. Natal Chiron in Pisces in the 12th. If you’re a student of astrology, you’ll have a sense of what that’s about.

This is an underrated transit in terms of its effects. This is very much a kind of “woe is me” period and it can be very emotionally debilitating. And it can feel like the world is against you.

This only happens every 28 or 29 years. So it’s not common.

Chiron represents our core wounding, whether we are aware of it or not. This wounding is often associated with traumas that occurred in our formative years, typically with family, who we also have a lot of karma with. But it also deals with past life traumas and wounding. It’s a wound that we can never get rid of, but that we can heal.

And as one matures and we have mastered that wounding, there’s the potential for us to help others who have suffered similar wounding, to become the wounded healer. That’s a real nutshell explanation.

One of the things about our core wounding is that we tend not to want to look at it because it is too provocative or triggering. Most of us prefer to have pleasant experiences. Of course. Why would we want to suffer?

And yet, if we don’t confront our wounding, it will victimize us and limit our potential. And it’ll keep getting triggered and showing up in all kinds of weird ways.

And the less conscious we are of our wounding, the less we have mastered it, the more vulnerable we are to it disrupting our life and our potential.

So ultimately, if we want to ascend, we have to confront our wounding or do our shadow work, however you want to phrase it. It’s absolutely critical.

I’ve had that experience many times where I have been cruising along thinking everything is great and then something will trigger me and it will throw me off course.

When Saturn makes aspects to Chiron, it demands that we approach our wounding in a very realistic, practical and mature way. Saturn does not let us off the hook.

Now I’m not young, so I have had this transit occur before.

When Saturn conjuncts your Chiron, it’s not pleasant because a lot of your wounding will be triggered and brought into your conscious awareness. And like I said, most of us don’t like to focus on these kinds of things.

It’s not fun. It’s difficult. It’s threatening. It’s disturbing. It’s uncomfortable. Who wants to be weak and vulnerable?

That’s the core of this experience, is recognizing your weakness and your vulnerability.

But then the question is, what do you do about it?

If you’re more mature, and I am at least by age, then you confront your wounding and your weaknesses and your vulnerabilities honestly and directly. The more confident and fearless you are about doing that, the more you will get done.

Now the 12th house, where this is occurring for me, can deal with a lot of the non-material aspects of reality.

So this can be like tapping into the collective trauma or wounding of society and reality. And there’s a lot of darkness there. There’s a lot of fear. There’s a lot of trauma.

Why am I explaining all this?

Because it’s drawn to my awareness how our society tends to avoid dealing with or confronting or even acknowledging these kinds of matters.

Take for example how we deal with things like homelessness. Right now there are people on the streets who at some point in the past had a family, a career, a three-bedroom home in the suburbs, and then they find themselves in circumstances where they lose everything and they have no choice but to live on the streets.

It could be because, for example, they couldn’t pay medical bills or they got bankrupted because of a health condition or something like that. Or maybe they had psychological problems or drug addiction or whatever it was.

And then our culture in many ways just kind of pretends that this isn’t actually happening, that that can’t happen to me, which is one of the ways that this gets perpetuated – this cycle – because nobody wants to think that that could happen to them.

Or we victim blame, which is a very low consciousness projection.

But my whole point is that at some point a lot of these people were just like us, and then they find themselves in these extremely challenging, difficult, and uncomfortable situations. And we as a society kind of sweep them under the rug, if not criminalize them.

And this is a very profound disservice and injustice to these people. It’s like kicking them when they’re down. It’s horrible.

These are the most vulnerable people in our society. And the true measure of our society is how we treat our most vulnerable people. If we do not treat them with respect and compassion, we are not an evolved society, regardless of what anyone says.

There are many seniors right now who retired thinking that they had enough money to survive through their retirement years. And because of inflation and higher interest rates, the skyrocketing cost of housing and health care, they’re finding that they’re not prepared in a way they thought they were. So these people, in fact, are now becoming vulnerable and marginalized as well. Many of them.

But this also occurs on the spiritual dimensions, where people who have experiences with dark psychic phenomenon are marginalized, rejected, or ostracized.

We portray these kinds of things a lot in film, think the horror genre. And people are fascinated by this, of course.

But in reality, people who experience these kinds of things can’t talk about it because they will be perceived as being crazy or threatened with being locked up in an institution.

Some people are mentally unstable. Let’s be clear about that. But not everyone.

And I myself have had many, many encounters with the darker aspects of reality for whatever reason going back to my childhood. And I have personally taken measures over the years to protect myself from those kinds of situations. I think it’s just simply because I’m psychically open or wired in a lot of ways that allows me to be able to perceive these kinds of things.

So what I’m saying is that sometimes these things are real.

I’m explaining all this because there needs to be a place for people who experience these kinds of things to be able to share those experiences and learn how to manage them without fear of being ostracized or stigmatized.

In fact, the worst thing that can happen here is that these people get increasingly isolated. You do not want to be in a state of fear when you are confronting these kinds of energies. It makes you more vulnerable.

My point is that people these days are more open about psychic phenomenon. This is something that we can’t explain scientifically or completely rationally. The majority of people are in complete denial about this kind of stuff.

Let’s face it, in the not too distant past, if not still to this day, people who experienced these kinds of things would have been thrown into mental institutions if not burned at the stake. That’s how bad it is.

People who are prone to these kinds of things need to learn ways of dealing with them that are constructive and positive. And that is possible. But it’s not likely to occur if our society just completely rejects the reality of this.

I am not in any way condoning darkness or the deliberate pursuit of it at all. I myself have made a solemn oath to be aligned with the path of light and truth. I am unwaveringly committed to that path, period.

However, we are not being of service to our brothers and our sisters if we deny their experiences and stigmatize them.

Now some people are having these kinds of experiences for karmic reasons, but even that can be addressed.

So I’m sharing this today, rather unexpectedly, because it came up for me very clearly and I had some insights into this that I wanted to share with you. It’s an uncomfortable topic, but it’s something that ultimately our society will need to confront in a constructive, compassionate way.

We are all members of the human family, and it behooves us, for all of us, to be uplifted and healed.

There is collective karma and trauma that humanity has to resolve or it will continue to occur, and the vast majority of us do not want to continue experiencing collective trauma, whether it’s through war or on the psychic levels.

Part of our collective upliftment in the Aquarian age will be for those who have the courage and the fortitude and the wisdom to help humanity to constructively move forward on these levels. So we have to help anyone in need, and I have made the point here before that we need to help our most vulnerable people.

Pretending that they don’t exist or that their reality is invalid is choosing ignorance and its folly.
