Oz the Great and Powerful



Disney's fantastical adventure "Oz The Great and Powerful," directed by Sam Raimi, imagines the origins of L. Frank Baum's beloved character, the Wizard of Oz. When Oscar Diggs (James Franco), a small-time circus magician with dubious ethics, is hurled away from dusty Kansas to the vibrant Land of Oz, he thinks he's hit the jackpot--fame and fortune are his for the taking--that is until he meets three witches, Theodora (Mila Kunis), Evanora (Rachel Weisz) and Glinda (Michelle Williams), who are not convinced he is the great wizard everyone's been expecting. Reluctantly drawn into the epic problems facing the Land of Oz and its inhabitants, Oscar must find out who is good and who is evil before it is too late. Putting his magical arts to use through illusion, ingenuity--and even a bit of wizardry--Oscar transforms himself not only into the great and powerful Wizard of Oz but into a better man as well.

Reincarnation of Marilyn Monroe



Brianstalin is a Reiki Master Teacher, who has spent many years in the Far East. Healers who have daily access to the Akashic Records have taught him that accurate past life data retrieval requires simple and focused psychic techniques very similar to dowsing. Subjective psychic impressions tend to be heavily tainted, resulting in distorted and inaccurate data. This is mostly evident in deep trance states experienced by those under hypnosis and those mediums who channel disembodied "enlightened" entities, allowing these entities to inhabit their bodies, temporarily, and to speak through them. Dowsing, contrary to popular belief, is very objective and the information obtained by such means can be very unexpected and intriguing. A number of psychic techniques and investigations can then be used to test the data later. Pendulums are a good start, but sensitive dowsers can rely on increasingly subtle mental, physical and psychic vibrations and sensations. The conclusions reached by ego can never be a good substitute for lots of meditation and healing/energy work.

The Astrology of 2012

The Astrology of 2012 and How it Affects You
by Marcus Mason
Posted by: DailyOM


With ever-increasing reports of catastrophic natural disasters and political upheaval taking place all over the world, and daily evidence that many of our traditional social and economic systems are no longer working, it's no wonder that we hear ourselves desperately asking: 'What's going on?' In this book, astrological expert Marcus Mason uses his extensive knowledge on the subject to provide some real answers to this question - and to explain how all of this applies to you, based on your personal sun sign. 21st December 2012 marks the end of a 25,626 year Time Cycle, caused by the Earth gradually changing her orientation in space. As we approach the end of one cycle and the beginning of the next, approaching astrology from the perspective of the soul's evolution can help us understand the inner, spiritual purpose behind the events and experiences of our lives. By exploring the sequence of astrological changes as they unfold, this book shows you that we are all being offered the exciting opportunity to: change our perceptions, by uniting the intelligence of the mind with that of the heart; understand how we can truly connect with each other and live in harmony; remember how to honour our Mother Earth; and, create a new, and infinitely more positive vision for our future. 
The Astrology of the 2012 Solstice

At first glance, the geocentric Chart (see Colour Plate 16) does not appear to be anything special. It shows what needs to be learned from the level of the ego and personality. It is the Sun-centred, heliocentric chart that reveals the true spiritual potentials that emerge into human consciousness on 21 December 2012.

Geocentric Chart (21 December 2012)

In the geocentric chart, the Sun is exactly conjunct with Juno, and is within 9° orb of Pluto. The Sun’s conjunction with Juno is crucial. We have seen throughout that Juno represents the principle of Right Relations. One of Juno’s most important qualities is ‘remembering’: why we came here; why we incarnated on the Earth at this particularly powerful time. We saw earlier that Juno reminds us of our ‘soul contracts’, the agreements or spiritual ‘tasks’ that our soul has undertaken to fulfil in this lifetime. As the Sun emerges with Juno, out of the depths of Earth’s Galactic Winter, it brings our soul’s awareness of our spiritual purpose into the Light.

We become more fully aware of what this means for us after the Sun becomes exactly conjunct with Pluto on 30 December 2012, and Juno becomes exactly conjunct with Pluto on 14 January 2013. The Sun and Juno are in opposition to retrograde Ceres, at the end of Gemini; this should create a deepening sense that our most important relationship is with Mother Earth.

In the West we have grown up in cultures that do not appreciate the significance of this relationship; we have learned that family, or our immediate loved ones, provide our most important relationships. Without the support and nourishment from the Earth, however, we would not exist at all, nor would any of our other relationships. This may seem so obvious, yet it is a fundamental fact all too easily missed, or taken for granted, in the cultures we have created.

In recent years, global warming and the increasing frequency of natural disasters have, ever so painfully slowly, been reminding us of our total dependence on Mother Earth; she is now shouting at us so loudly, insistently and frequently that we can no longer afford to ignore her. Collectively, we have begun to act on this awareness, although for many this is still motivated by the desire to maintain a lifestyle similar to the one that created the problem. This lifestyle, which has lost any real understanding of our intimate relationship with the Earth, has only truly existed since the Industrial Revolution. Before then, we understood our dependence on Nature; since then, we have learned to exploit Her ever more ruthlessly. It is sobering to visit the home of the Industrial Revolution at Ironbridge in Shropshire, and see how beautifully the bridge now blends into the natural environment. We could learn much by contemplating this.

Mystery of the Zodiac

Collaboration with Astrolada


Annoula introduces her Collaboration with Astrolada

Astrolada: " All my life I have been looking for ways of getting to know myself better and  develop beyond my self imposed limitations. I researched psychology, philosophy, religions, occult arts and various other wonderful fields but only when I came across astrology did I find a tool that incorporated all of the above and showed me clearly the path to my genuine self. I was so amazed with its accuracy and clarity that I decided to dedicate my life to spreading this noble art and giving its benefits to anyone who is willing to work on their self betterment and realization."
Astrolada " I started studying astrology with London School of Astrology and some of my tutors were the famous Susan Tompkins and Frank Clifford. Later I became an apprentice to a most exclusive Bulgarian astrologer - Cvetemira Borisova, who taught me Hellenistic, Babylonian, Medieval and other traditional techniques which are used only by a handful of other professionals in the world. I also study and incorporate Vedic Astrology--it is more than 5000 year old-the oldest and most preserved divinatory system given to the Seers straight from the Universal Mind. I had the amazing "chance" to discover the work of Ernst Wilhelm who is considered the most prolific vedic astrologer and researcher, translating and decoding the forgotten Sanskrit sacred books! I feel so privileged to have been allowed by Providence to have such a teacher ".
Astrolada is based in London and works extensively with private clients, companies and oraginzations.

Greece receives important bailout


ATHENS, Greece -- European and global financial leaders have agreed to release (EURO)44 billion ($57 billion) in critical loans to Greece and provide billions in additional debt relief in order to help the country stabilize its ailing economy.
After three weeks of negotiations, Greece's euro partners and the International Monetary Fund agreed early Tuesday morning to release the loans in four installments beginning next month. The leaders also settled on a raft of measures -- including a debt buyback program and an interest rate cut on loans -- that will reduce the country's debts by about (EURO)40 billion.
Greek Prime Minister Antonis Samaras hailed the agreement in Brussels as a victory. "Yesterday, a very grey, a very dark time for Greece ended definitively," he said in a televised address to the nation, adding that the agreement "managed to ensure us remaining in the euro."
The eurogroup and IMF agreed to release in December (EURO)34.4 billion in loans originally scheduled for June. The remainder will be issued in three installments in the first quarter of 2013. The money will be used to help recapitalize Greece's struggling banking industry and pay back suppliers, including its pharmacists which have gone for months without any payment from the Greek state welfare system.
Greek Finance Minister Yannis Stournaras said the deal was "very important for it keeps Greece in the euro, offers it a significant opportunity to exit the vicious cycle of recession and over-indebtedness, and contributes to its debt reduction."
But Germany's finance minister, Wolfgang Schaeuble, warned that Greece still has to stick to its side of the bargain for the bailout loans and debt relief to work.
"We can do what we want, from the IMF to the eurogroup, if Greece itself doesn't implement the necessary, difficult reforms and adjustment measures step by step, then it's a mission impossible," he told reporters in Berlin.

Penelope Delta (Benakis)

Penelope Delta (GreekΠηνελόπη ΔέλταAlexandria, 1874 – Athens, 2 May 1941) was a Greek author of books for children. Practically the first Greek children's books writer, her historical novels have been widely read and influenced Greek popular perceptions on national identity and history. Through her long-time association with Ion Dragoumis, Delta was thrust in the middle of the turbulent early 20th-century Greek politics, from the Macedonian Struggle to the National Schism. She committed suicide on the day German troops entered Athens in World War II.
The Benakis family temporarily moved to Athens in 1882, where she later married a wealthy Phanariote entrepreneur, Stephanos Deltas, with whom she had three daughters, Sophia Mavrogordatos, Virginia Zannas, and Alexandra Papadopoulos. Stephanos Deltas was a nephew of mathematician Constantin Carathéodory. They returned to Alexandria in 1905, where she metIon Dragoumis, then the Vice-Consul of Greece in Alexandria. Ion Dragoumis, like Penelope Delta, also wrote about the Macedonian Struggle and his personal recollections of it in his books. Penelope Delta formed a romantic relationship with him for some time. Out of respect for Deltas and her children, Delta and Dragoumis decided to separate, but continued to correspond passionately until 1912, when Dragoumis started a relationship with the famous stage actress Marika Kotopouli. In the meantime Penelope had twice attempted suicide.*Wikipedia*

Penelope Delta's innate literary talent had been evident since childhood. Her contribution to literature decisively influenced the evolution of the children's book in a period when it was otherwise neglected. Inspired principally by Greek historical events, her books were read by generations of children, and continue to be relevant to the present day. "The Nameless Story", "In the days of the Bulgarslayer", "The Secrets of the Swamp", "The Mangas", and the most beloved of all, "Crazy Antonis", a story about her brother Antonis Benakis, remain indelibly etched in the Greek collective memory. Penelope Delta was elected to several learned associations and societies, and contributed in countless ways to the advancement of literature and culture.

Her contribution to the collection of oral testimonies about contemporary Greek history is generally acknowledged to be of great importance. Starting out by recording the memoirs of veterans of the Macedonian struggle--all of which represent valuable sources of historical information today--she proceeded to gather oral narratives about the most important political and military events of her time. Her family's prominent role in society and her own sensitivity about national issues meant that she was personally involved in the some of the most difficult periods in Greek history. For instance, in 1918 she took part in two missions to Eastern Macedonia aimed at assisting hostages returning from captivity in Bulgaria. She revealed the same patriotic tendencies in the aftermath of the catastrophe in Asia Minor in 1922 and in the Greco-Italian War of 1940.
