A Rave New World

On Tuesday, February 2 at 12:12 a. m. PST, the planets Uranus and Neptune will form what is known in astrology and astronomy as a conjunction. A conjunction is when two or more heavenly bodies occupy the same visual area of the sky.

When this happens the energies of both planets are intensified and work in unison. The Outer Planets, astrologically speaking, have a deeper, longer lasting effects. Aspects (significant angles formed between two heavenly bodies) involving the outer planets, bring about profound change and events.

The last conjunction of outer planets involved Uranus and Pluto and occurred on June 30, 1966. It was the catalyst for the "Summer of Love" in 1967 and Woodstock in 1968. Many of you know that what we are doing here is special. It is not just about having a good time but something much deeper, we are actually learning how to communicate and be with each other in a very special way.


The planet Uranus rules electricity, scientific discoveries, revolutions and the higher aspects of "left brain" activity, (things like using technology to find a cure for AIDS or Virtual Reality).


The planet Neptune rules psychic abilities, intuition, mind altering drugs, trance, ecstatic states, and the higher aspects of "right brain" activity, (things like knowing what the Right Thing to Do is, and that special feeling that we often get at the peak of the party that some call The Vibe).


These two planets will be coming together in the sign of Capricorn which is the sign of organization of thought and concrete application of ideas and energy.

This is our chance to bridge the gap between the psychic and the scientific, the haves and the have-nots, the rational and the intuitive.

The energy of these two planets have a lot to do with the House Movement and many of the events that have been going on and will continue to go on around the world.

The 1993 year will be truly spectacular, if you think we had a lot of fun last year, just wait! In addition to the first conjunction on February 2, there will be two others later on in the year, one on August 20 at 12:44 a.m. PDT and the last one on October 24 at 1:20 p.m. PDT.

Many of you have felt the energy of these two planets as they have been drawing closer to each other over the last year.

Some of you may have had enormous amounts of energy, some have lost the motivation to work "in the world", or maybe you might have entertained the thought that you were going "crazy". Don't worry, you're not, you are just experiencing the global wake-up call!

The Earth has enough for all if we just learn to open our hearts, face our fears and learn to share and help each other. It doesn't take much, our power is in our numbers. You all know that 2000 people at a beach or forest or park can just about do whatever they want.

Since we have been non-violent our energy and purpose has been clear. The feelings that we experience at a rave are hard to put into words, and it may be a bit scary or threatening to many people who haven't experienced it yet. It is important to send these people (yes, even the Police) love and understanding.

We are riding the crest of a wave of ideas whose time has come. The House Movement is growing in epidemic proportions.The authorities, try as they may, can't stop it now.

But we must remember to send love as much as possible, that is where our true power lies.

"Strong rhythms effect change, and dances with exciting rhythms heighten the feeling of togetherness, instill courage and break down emotional and mental barriers. Ecstasy cults are dynamic, and because of their strong impact, they are contagious. Consequently, whether inside or outside a current religion, they tend to be suppressed and their exponents persecuted, as constituting a potential or actual political danger to the established system."
