Western Sidereal Astrology, Part I


Western Sidereal Astrology, Part I – The Zodiac Issue by Kenneth Bowser

This is the first in a three part series on western sidereal astrology, its antecedents in the ancient Near East, and its renewal by Cyril Fagan, one of the greatest astrologers of the 20th century.  This series, which originally ran in the student section of The Mountain Astrologer, will also cover the introduction of tropical zodiac reckoning, the phenomenon of precession, the astrological ages, and a quick review of the works of Hipparchos of Rhodes and Claudius Ptolemy. People new to astrology are often confounded by the two main schools of thought within it: tropical and sidereal.  Tropical astrology reckons positions of bodies from the Northern Hemisphere vernal equinox. In this system, the zodiac is defined by the seasons and is disconnected from the stars as a frame of reference.  It gained currency late in the first millennium B.C. in the Greek world and is practiced today primarily in the West.

Sidereal astrology reckons positions of bodies from the fixed stars.  In this system the zodiac is defined by the stars themselves and is disconnected from the seasons as a frame of reference.  The earliest form of sidereal astrology gained currency in the Near and Middle East in the second millennium B.C. Sidereal astrology is practiced today primarily in India and among some Westerners, mostly British and American.

There are two schools of sidereal astrology: eastern, also known as Indian, Vedic or Hindu astrology, much described in the pages of this magazine, and Babylonian, also known as Western sidereal astrology.  Babylonian astrology is a familiar quantity in academia because it is very well documented. Western sidereal astrology is built around the re-discovery in the nineteenth century of the sidereal zodiac employed in Assyria and Babylonia (modern Iraq) that spread throughout the Near and Middle East and the Mediterranean world.

Eastern and western methodologies are similar in some respects, but the differences are great enough that the two schools can only be considered cousins, rather than brothers, joined mainly by their use of the sidereal zodiac.  Western sidereal methodology is closer to tropical astrology with the sidereal zodiac substituted for the tropical.

In the ancient world astrology and astronomy were, in effect, twin disciplines.  Every astronomical fact had an astrological corollary, a tenet astrologers still embrace.  Early astrology was crude compared to its modern rendering, but it bloomed into a form roughly familiar to modern astrologers in the first millennium B.C.


The earliest Babylonian astronomical document to which a date can be affixed is from 1702 B.C and the last datable Babylonian astronomical document found to date is from A.D. 75. Babylonian materials are plentiful and well-edited from approximately1600 B.C. through to the height of the Roman Imperial Era in the first century of the Christian Era.  The earliest astronomical computations in the Middle East were concerned with the varying length of day and night, the rising and setting of the Moon and the appearance and disappearance of Venus. The equinox was noted because of its integral role in the determination of the longest and shortest days.

The most important texts for ancient astrology come from the city-states of Nineveh, Babylon and Uruk in ancient Mesopotamia, and the most important of those texts is the seventy tablet series known by its incipit: the Enuma Anu Enlil (“When [the gods] Anu and Enlil…”).  It is the richest source of second millennium B.C. astrological and astronomical information in the world. The Enuma Anu Enlil series deals with solar, lunar, planetary, stellar, zodiacal and meteorological lore and some omens. Its astrology is called judicial because it deals with events and conditions that affect king and country; primary among those are issues that relate to war and peace, quality of the harvest and weather.  This was all derived from the positions of the Sun, Moon, planets and stars and sometimes the rising point of the ecliptic. Modern astrologers do the same things, now mostly for individuals, but judicial or political astrology is still very much in vogue.

A two tablet series titled Mul Apin (which means “plowstar”), that is part of the Enuma Anu Enlil series, deals extensively with astronomical lore including the simultaneous risings and settings of constellations, the time interval between the rising of paired constellations and the calendar dates that correspond to the risings and culminations of important stars in the Babylonian pantheon.  Mul Apin is a compilation that took centuries to complete. Its completion date is firmly fixed at 687 B.C., and while some scholars place its genesis in the third millennium B.C., the latest work on this series strongly suggests that it dates from 1000 B.C. (1)

The zodiac took many centuries to sort out.  The twelve equal division scheme of thirty degrees each is not attested with certainty until 500 B.C., although there is compelling circumstantial evidence, that it is several centuries older than that.  Before they produced the modern twelve-fold division of the zodiac the Babylonians used an eighteen unequal division scheme that included the twelve constellations used today but with Pisces in two pieces (the eastern fish and the western fish) plus another constellation within Pisces called “the swallow” and with the addition of the Pleiades, Auriga, Orion and Perseus.  

The high water mark for Babylonian mathematical astronomy that transferred directly into an astrological context, covers the second half of the first millennium B.C.  The discoveries in the second millennium B.C. that most planetary and astronomical movements are periodic was an enormous stimulus to regular observation, record-keeping and mathematical treatment of those observations.

After the final determination of the reality of the zodiac, the main tool that allowed the Babylonians to graduate from omens to a broader, more extensive astrology, was a technique called period relations.  Period relations are a combination of sidereal periods and synodic periods. A synodic period is the time elapsed between successive conjunctions of a planet with the Sun as seen from the Earth. The synodic period for Jupiter, for example, is 398.88 days.  A planet’s sidereal period is the time it requires to orbit the Sun as seen from the Earth. The sidereal period for Jupiter is 11.86223 years, but Jupiter’s period relation, discovered by the Babylonians, is thirty-six revolutions of that planet which is 427 years or 391 synodic periods.  That means Jupiter returns to the same positions in the zodiac very closely every 427 years with respect to its synodic phenomena, both in terms of order of occurrence and interval in time. A planet’s synodic phenomena are its first appearance (visibility), first stationary point, opposition (to the Sun), second stationary point and last appearance (visibility).  For example, in the current year Jupiter has had two stations; in terms of sidereal reckoning, it turned stationary retrograde on April 6, 2007 (N.S., i.e. New Style or Gregorian calendar reckoning) at 24° 56′ and stationary direct on August 7, 2007 (N.S.) at 15° 05′. Four hundred twenty-seven years ago Jupiter turned stationary retrograde on March 22, 1580 (O.S., i.e. Old Style or Julian calendar reckoning) at 25° 42′ and stationary direct at 15° 51′ on July 23, 1580 (O.S.). (2)  The agreement between 1580 and 2007 is close enough to allow someone with long term observations of the previous 427 years to predict Jupiter’s behavior quite accurately during its period relation that began in 2007 by comparing it to 1580. The period relation of Venus is 1151 years; Mars is 284 years; Saturn is 265 years; Mercury is 46 years. The understanding of period relations was immensely valuable information much used by later astronomer/astrologers including the Greeks, the Indians and the Arabs.
Period relations are the main component of the first ephemerides, one of the greatest achievements of the Babylonians.  There is a difference, however, of more than five degrees between tropical and sidereal reckoning during Jupiter’s period relation that is at the root of how precession was discovered.  Actually, it is precisely this divide between tropical and sidereal reckoning that is only obvious over a period of centuries that gave rise to tropical reckoning itself. Babylonian material is sidereal, but the Babylonians had no knowledge of precession—the element that separates tropical from sidereal reckoning.  Their use of the equinox was mainly to keep their calendar from drifting out of relationship with the solar year. Their priority with respect to the zodiac is their supreme achievement; ephemerides rank next in importance.


Tropical and sidereal reckoning diverge with the career of the Greek astronomer Hipparchos of Rhodes. His dates are unknown but his career spanned the period 146-127 B.C.   Hipparchos made observations of stars that he compared against the first star catalogue compiled by a Greek, the astronomer Timocharis, one and a half centuries before Hipparchos’s time.

Hipparchos found that (the modern equivalent of) declinations (3) of some stars had increased in 150 years, some had decreased, some had stayed the same but that distances and positions of the stars with respect to each other had not changed, nor had their celestial latitudes. (4) Hipparchos’s observations were correct and the conclusions he drew from them completely logical based upon his underlying assumptions that the Earth was motionless and the center of the solar system.  He concluded that Spica (the brightest star in Virgo) had been eight degrees to the west of the autumnal equinox in Timocharis’s time, and from his own observations that Spica was six degrees to the west of the autumnal point in his own time. (5) It is from this conclusion in combination with the declination comparisons to Timocharis’s star catalogue that Hipparchos deduced that there was definitely a slow motion between the stars and the equinoxes, heretofore unknown. Hipparchos’s lasting fame rests more on this discovery called now “the precession of the equinoxes” than for any other part of his work.

The consequence of his discovery produced the modern tropical zodiac almost beyond question.  If one believes that the Earth doesn’t move and one observes motion between the equinoxes and the stars, then one is forced to conclude that the stars must be moving with respect to the Earth.  What is actually happening, now as then, is that the Earth moves with respect to an essentially fixed sky, but the Earth’s motion was not obvious by any experiment devised in Hipparchos’s time. The stars do have motion with respect to the Earth but their motions are so infinitesimally small that in most cases it takes tens of thousands of years for an observer to see any change in their distances from each other.  Except for some relatively fast nearby stars (yet even these are still exceedingly slow except compared to a stellar average), it takes hundreds of thousands of years for stars to move as much as one degree with respect to the Earth. So while the so-called fixed stars are not absolutely fixed, as a practical matter they are very much fixed to the naked eye. The night sky looks now to the naked eye just as it did at the dawn of recorded history in Egypt circa 3000 B.C.

The premise behind Hipparchos’s logic is that the initial starting point of the zodiac has to be tied to something that won’t change.  Otherwise one has no absolute standard against which to measure bodies. Yet if it is assumed that the Earth is fixed and the sky is moving, the signs reckoned from the vernal equinox — which moves one degree westward against the stars in 72 years — quickly get out of synchronization with the sidereal signs reckoned from the stars.  Sidereal reckoning is not subject to precession because its frame of reference is fixed to a star and an epoch that obviates the exceedingly slow motion of the stars themselves. The zero degree of Aries, as defined by western sidereal reckoning, is the point forty-five degrees west of Aldebaran, the brightest star in the middle of the constellation Taurus at the epoch A.D. 1950.0. Thus, sidereal reckoning is “fixed” and tropical reckoning is called, “the moving zodiac.
The case has been made (6) by G.J. Toomer, whose translation of Ptolemy’s Almagest is unquestionably the best one, that Hipparchos concluded, at least at one point in his reasoning, that the equinox had moved (which is actually what had happened) and thus that it cannot be regarded as a fixed point on the ecliptic into perpetuity.  

However this position (that the equinox had moved) was the end result of a long process that was intimately bound up in Hipparchos’s determination of the difference between the sidereal year and the tropical year. Therefore it is not completely clear from the modest remnants of his work that he was confident of which frame of reference—the stars or the equinoctial points—was moving in relation to the other until, Professor Toomer thinks, the very end of Hipparchos’s career.  Another modern authority (7) with impressive astronomical and academic credentials also maintained that Hipparchos did adopt the hypothesis that the equinox had to be moving. The rationale behind that assertion, explained by Professor W.M. Smart is that it is unreasonable to assume that every star Hipparchos examined from one era to the next had exactly the same proper motion, which is a requirement if the star field were moving against a fixed equinox.

Precession is well illustrated by observing the wobble inside the spin of a child’s spinning top.  It looks like the slow gyration of the rotation axis of a spinning body. The Earth does the same thing due principally to its shape and the fact that its polar axis is not aligned with the pole of the plane of the ecliptic.  The angle between the ecliptic plane and the plane of the celestial equator is called the obliquity of the ecliptic. It is currently 23 ½°.

The Earth, like any semi-rigid body that rotates even as fast as a merry-go-round, accumulates material around its equator.  The Earth moves at the rate of 1000 miles per hour at the equator, which is more than sufficient to deform a non-rigid sphere.  Accordingly, the Earth’s polar diameter is twenty-seven miles less than its equatorial diameter, which makes it an oblate spheroid due to its bulging equator.

The gravitational relationships between the Sun, the Earth and the Moon are experienced on the Earth side of the equation almost exclusively at the equatorial bulge.  The effect is to pull the Earth upright so as to bring the Earth’s polar axis into alignment with the ecliptic pole; however, a torque — in this case, gravitational attraction — applied to a rotating body will cause the body to respond at a right angle to the [vector of the] applied torque.  That means the Earth, because it is massive and spinning, is able to resist the gravitational forces of the Sun and the Moon that would otherwise change its orientation in space instantly; but the Earth is nonetheless affected by the gravitational attraction of the Sun and Moon tugging at its equatorial bulge and responds at a right angle to the force applied on it: its spin axis slowly wobbles.  This motion is too slow to be seen in a lifetime without instruments. Due to the immense masses, forces and distances in this three-way relationship between the Sun, the Moon and the Earth, it takes approximately 25,800 years to complete a single wobble cycle. Thus about every 2,100 years the Earth precesses through thirty degrees. Those are the astrological ages. The meaning of the term, “Age of Pisces” — in which we are now — is that if one looks due East on the morning of the Northern Hemisphere vernal equinox, one will see the Sun rise with the stars in the constellation Pisces because precession has carried the equinox away from Aries since Hipparchos’s time.

The next great figure in astrology and astronomy is Claudius Ptolemy who is separated from Hipparchos by three hundred years.  Ptolemy’s dates are also unknown although the best educated guesses place him between A.D. 100 and 175. He wrote in Greek but lived in Alexandria, Egypt, the intellectual center of Late Antiquity in the West.  He was a polymath whose known fourteen works included not just astrology and astronomy but mathematics, optics and cartography. Ptolemy thoroughly embraced the tropical zodiac and, like Hipparchos, was convinced of the immobility of the earth and that the solar system was geocentric (i.e., that the Sun orbits the Earth).  His career spanned the period when tropical and sidereal reckoning were almost identical at the very end of the age of Aries. In other words what Ptolemy wrote about corresponded to what an observer saw; there was agreement between observation and theory, but only during that era.

Among Ptolemy’s works, the two that profoundly influenced astrology in the West for 1500 years were the Syntaxis, a treatise on mathematical astronomy, and the Tetrabiblos, a treatise on astrology.  The Syntaxis is better known as the Almagest, which is the Arabic rendering from the Greek superlative for “greatest.” The Almagest served as the primary astronomical and astrological text in the Western world as well as the Near East from the time of its inception around A.D. 150 until its astronomical content was first shaken by the work of Copernicus (1473-1543) and finally superceded by the work of Johannes Kepler (1571-1630) and Isaac Newton (1642-1727).

While the Syntaxis was a brilliant treatise for its day, it suffers from the schematism so beloved by Aristotle that affected the intellectual life of the West for another thirteen centuries.  Among the main features of the Almagest that distinguish it from earlier astronomical models are that it employs geometric models (8) whereas the Babylonians used none, and the choice of time rather than position to locate a body in the zodiac. For the Babylonians all planet positions were based upon their places at critical moments: their synodic phenomena.  Once those positions in the zodiac had been determined, the Babylonians interpolated the positions of bodies between those phenomena to get accurate positions of the planets based on their regular behavior within their period relations. Ptolemy addressed the question in the form: “Where are the planets at any particular moment in time?” with time rather than position as the independent variable.  Although the epicycle models Ptolemy used are not a true reflection of reality, and the solar system is heliocentric not geocentric, his numbers were close enough to correct that they were considered an acceptable approximation of the real world by the standards of his day. The accuracy of the Ptolemaic model was shown to be quite imprecise, however, by the standard of the Western world 1300 years later.  He is still unquestionably the pre-eminent figure in astronomy/astrology in the West during Late Antiquity.

(2) The agreement in time between the dates of Jupiter’s stations over 427 years is much closer than it may first appear to be due to the different calendars in effect at the beginning of these two consecutive period relations.  The difference between twenty-first century Gregorian reckoning and sixteenth century Julian reckoning is thirteen days. Thus the true difference between the beginning dates of Jupiter’s stations in 1580 and the 2007 is actually two days rather than fifteen.

(3) Declination is the distance north or south of the celestial equator measured in degrees of arc.  It is directly analogous to terrestrial latitude extended out into space. The celestial equator is the plane of the Earth’s terrestrial equator extended off the planet into space.

(4) Celestial latitude is the distance north or south of the ecliptic plane measured in degrees of arc.  The ecliptic is a plane that intersects the centers of the Sun and the Earth that is inclined to the plane of the Sun’s equator by 7¼ °.  All the planets orbit the Sun approximately in the plane of the ecliptic except Pluto whose orbital plane is inclined to the ecliptic by 17°

Full Transcript 

Hi, I’m Joy Jackson, the Backyard Mystic. All good things must come to an end, and this installment completes our video series exploring concepts related to extraterrestrial disclosure and Law of One philosophy as revealed in selected episodes of Gene Roddenberry‘s classic science fiction television series “Star Trek: The Next Generation”.

In our previous segment, we examined alien cultures predating humans on Earth in Star Trek by millions and even billions of years. Perhaps the most significant among them — believed to be the first sentient lifeforms in the Milky Way Galaxy within the Star Trek Universe — is a race of ancient humanoids known as the Progenitors.



QUOTE: The work continued. I made a discovery so profound in its implications that silence seemed the wisest course. This work has occupied my every waking thought, it’s intruded upon my dreams, it’s become my life. When finished and I announce my findings, it will be heard half way across the galaxy. — Dr. Richard Galen

A single Next Generation episode provides virtually all of our information and understanding about the species known as the Progenitors that comes to us from on-screen canon sources.



In “The Chase”, TNG Season 6 episode 20, an archaeologist and revered mentor from Picard’s academy days, Dr. Richard Galen, entreats the Captain on an expedition of profound scientific and galactic import, and the crew of the Enterprise find themselves in a race alongside Klingon, Romulan, and Cardassian scientists to solve the mystery of the Progenitors.

With some assistance from Commander Riker, Galen arrives unannounced aboard the Enterprise and presents his former star pupil Picard with a priceless artifact, a rare figurine called a nexus from the Kurlan System, in an attempt to rekindle old passions and enlist Picard’s help on a months-long expedition. When the Captain tries delicately to proffer his current Starfleet command duties as taking priority over an important expedition, he receives a stern reproach from Galen, who departs soon thereafter via shuttlecraft with the rift between mentor and student still apparent.



When Galen’s shuttlecraft is later attacked and disabled, Captain Picard finds his former mentor mortally wounded. These circumstances prompt Picard to investigate, and he finds among Galen’s protected computer files a series of numeric sequences, which turn out to be genetic data on various species from many different planets. When the Enterprise visits planets on Galen’s expedition itinerary, clues lead Picard and Doctor Crusher to discover that the disparate DNA sequences have unexpected cross-compatibility, and Engineer La Forge determines that the combined genetic data contains an artificially constructed algorithm for deciphering a hidden message within the genetic code in lifeforms scattered across the galaxy.

Picard’s quest ultimately brings him to Loren III in the Kurlan System, origin of the figurine he received from Galen, where rival Klingon, Cardassian, and Romulan teams are striving to solve the same mystery. After a series of tense negotiations — and some treachery — Picard, La Forge, and Crusher decipher a holographic message recorded by a member of the Progenitor species billions of years before, one that describes briefly the history and the goals of the Progenitors, revealing the common origin of humanoid sentient life across the galaxy — including the species bearing witness — and confirming the hope of these ancients for unity and peace.



The on-screen depiction from one TNG episode provides a relatively sparse history of the Progenitor species, but combining dialog references with supplemental information from other sources considered canon within the Star Trek franchise, we can begin to put together a picture of this ancient race.

The Progenitors evolved in the same half of the galaxy as Earth about the same time as our solar system, about four and a half billion years ago. It is suggested that they were peaceable and introspective in nature. This is foreshadowed in the episode by the naiksos figurine artifact presented to Picard, which is an individual containing a harmonious “ community of individuals” within it, each with its own voice, another conspicuous subtext of Roddenberry’s “Infinite Diversity in Infinite Combinations” philosophy.

The Progenitors accomplished much over millennia and reached out into the stars, spacefaring in search of others like themselves, but they encountered no other sentient life. After billions of years of cultural evolution in isolation, they embarked on a program to engineer sentient life themselves, another clear reference to the value of diversity in the evolution of the cosmos.

The Progenitors were successful in combining their own DNA with that of lower indigenous lifeforms from planets throughout the Alpha and Beta Quadrants of the Galaxy, seeding dozens (if not hundreds) of habitable worlds with genetic blueprints to evolve sentient species having the same basic humanoid biology and somatic plan. The Progenitors seem to have disappeared from Trek’s archaeological record around two billion years ago, with their grand experiment still in progress; their only connection to the species they’d helped to create was the encoded message fragmented and hidden within the genes they’d contributed as their biological legacy.


According to author and lecturer David Wilcock, insiders within the Secret Space Program, and the omnipotent entity RA from the RA: Material Law of One book series, the extraterrestrials from the society known as the Ancient Builder Race, sometimes referred to as the Guardians, are a group of highly advanced beings, allegedly responsible for guiding human evolution.


In order to avoid being wiped out, the Ancient Builders ventured out from their planet of origin, and colonized our solar system along with others, seeding the galaxy with the precursors for sentient life. Existing at a higher level of consciousness and awareness than we do, these extraterrestrials now oversee management and transfer of planetary populations across the stars.


What happened to the Progenitors in Star Trek? This is a fervently discussed topic among hardcore Trek fans. There is little evidence of their fate in established canon material, but some fundamental investigation — and a little Vulcan logic [Vulcan salute] — can help us make some educated guesses as to the possibilities.

Some viewers advance the idea that the Progenitors simply died out. After all, natural disasters happen, stars go supernova, and wars rage, so this is certainly one theoretical possibility, but perhaps an unlikely one. The Progenitors were on the galactic stage for at least two and a half billion years. They traveled across the galaxy to many worlds, so scenarios of disaster and internal conflict that would seem plausible as explanations for the end of planetbound civilizations gain much less traction.

Others suggest that the peaceable Progenitors might have have actually been destroyed by one of the child races they engineered. This Godwinesque theory, reminiscent of Mary Shelley’s creature slaying his creator in Frankenstein is interesting but potentially flawed, since Trek canon sources seem to indicate that the next oldest sentient species in the galaxy were the Taguin, which only appear in the material culture record after the disappearance of the Progenitors about two billion years ago.

Another popular fan theory explaining the disappearance of the Progenitors is that they evolved beyond their corporeal biological form into beings of pure energy and light. This transition to “higher-density” levels of existence outside our normative perception of reality is not only consistent with precedent established for other species from Star Trek’s Original Series, such as the Orgainians and the Metrons, but also consistent with ideas in real-world ascension culture and Law of One philosophy. This transitional evolution for the Progenitors may hold the most internal validity as a plausible explanation for events of their denouement.

According to SSP insiders the Ancient Builders evolved beyond their corporeal biological forms into social/memory/complexes, which are conjoined spirits acting as a unified collective of energy of a higher density. They continue to inhabit our galaxy as our higher-dimensional guardians. According to the omnipotent social/memory/complex RA, the Guardians faithfully continue to oversee our evolution as spiritual guides, to be of service to us when called, and to balance the energies of our Universe as needed.

Star Trek’s Progenitors laid the in-universe groundwork for human evolution on Earth and disappeared long before their creations ever achieved sentience. Even so, they took great pains to record, encode, and preserve a message of peace and unity for their descendants to guide them on a moral and spiritual path as part of their legacy.

When Picard, his crewmates, the Klingon captain, and the away teams the Romulan and Cardassian vessels witness the recorded projection, it becomes clear that the sole goal of the communication from these evolved beings was to inspire their offspring with the simple idea that their fellowship has great value and that the acceptance of a philosophy of unity will serve to free them from strife and allow their higher selves to flourish and prosper.

When Picard solves the mystery and the existence, the influence, and the message of the Progenitors are revealed, their impact is clear and simple (just the way Gene Roddenberry liked things). We — the galactic “we” — are truly all one. The rivalries, disputes, and conflicts between sentient species — and, by corollary, within them — instantly abate — even if the Cardassians are loathe to accept the truth…

Of all the possible messages the Progenitors could have handed down, it is significant that this powerful idea of unity is the one they chose, a philosophy almost directly congruent with the Law of One.

From inside the Secret Space Program, we have learned that the Ancient Builder race has evolved over millennia to be benevolent stewards of our galaxy, working outside our scope here on Earth. Reports say there are evolved civilizations continuing their stewardship and waiting to disclose their existence to us — along with our true origins — at a point when we ourselves have evolved to be a more conscious, loving, and peaceful society.

The Star Trek universe and these heretofore cryptic sources own reality seem to share this view, that the path to unity and spiritual awakening is itself rich with rewards as part of the experience of exploration in the final frontier.

New Moon in Gemini, June 13, 2018


On June 13, 2018 there will be a new moon lunation in Gemini.

New moons represent the end of one lunar cycle and the beginning of another, bringing us supportive energies for fresh starts and new beginnings.


The eclipse season begins with this new moon in Gemini, and during this last cycle we are going to be tying up loose ends, and bringing closure to significant themes and issues we have been working through with since the beginning of the year.

The sign of Gemini symbolizes The Twins, and represents duality, adaptability, and the conscious and subconscious minds.

As the Sun comes into conjunction with the Moon in Gemini, our focus will shift to communication, education and gaining wisdom. The mentally stimulating energies of The Twins may make it more difficult for us to calm our minds during this transit, so making an extra effort to take some mental breaks as needed during this period will be very beneficial.

A Guide to Active Meditation for Walking and Running



Meditation can be defined as a practice of focusing the mind on a particular object, thought or activity, to help achieve a mentally clear and emotionally calm state of being.

In addition to promoting relaxation and higher spiritual awareness, meditation has been demonstrated scientifically to reduce stress, to ease depression and anxiety, to help reduce and manage chronic pain, and to strengthen the brain.

Even just as little as five minutes of meditation per day has been shown to have noticeable and accumulative effects on the mind, body, and spirit.


In recent years, many Olympians and elite athletes have begun incorporating meditation into their training because of the host of benefits meditation contributes to their training and overall performance.

Often people become frustrated by meditation when they have difficulty clearing their minds. However, the aim of meditation is not necessarily to clear the mind but to focus it by being present with our thoughts and observing them as they arise. As each new thought enters our consciousness, we can choose to follow it, to let it go, or to revisit it at another time.

Active meditation is focusing the mind on the activity we are performing in the here and now, and not thinking about anything else. It provides us with something specific on which to focus our attention on, that we can experience in real time taking place within our present physical reality.



Activities like walking or running inherently narrow our focus and draw our attention inward to the present moment, and the road ahead, yet we often distract ourselves and diffuse our attention from our bodies and our surroundings by wearing headphones and listening to music, using mobile devices, or passing the time thinking about parts of our lives other than where we are in the moment. Incorporating active meditation into these activities strengthens our ability to re-focus on our present activity and immerse ourselves in the sensations and sensory stimuli that are parts of that experience: the approaching terrain, the gentle breeze of the wind, the songs of birds, or the sound of a nearby river. In truth, there is no right or wrong way to practice active meditation, as several different paths lead to the same outcome, but there are some approaches to the practice that can add to our experience and help us maximize its benefits.

As any endurance athlete will tell you, whether you can keep going has as much to do with mental focus, as physical training. Often it’s the mind that gives up before the body. Often the body can go further when we can create a sense of calm in the mind.

There are many ways to develop an active meditation practice during your walk or run, or any other repetitive physical activity. If you’re ready to try focus over distraction during your walks or runs, here are six tips to help you get started:

Focus on Your Breath and Posture

Bring more awareness to your breath, as well as your posture while you walk or run. Be aware of slumping shoulders or tightness anywhere in the body. Try to keep the shoulders back and the chest lifted to allow maximum oxygen to enter the body. Active meditation requires a comfortable pace.

Listen to Your Footfalls

A great place to begin is simply by listening to or counting footfalls. For example, count every step up to twelve, then count back down. Counting is a good way to anchor our attention to keep our mind from wandering off. If distractions start to sneak in, observe them, let them go, and return to your counting.

Choose a Mantra

For most a mantra meditation is a very simple yet very powerful tool to use. Mantras help us to anchor our focus to raise our consciousness. Choose a positive and supportive mantra that holds meaning to you.

Set an Intention

Set an intention that this walk or run will help resolve your question. It could be a question that has been nagging us for days, or a stressful issue or challenging thought that has been on our mind. We don’t have to know what the resolution might be, just hold trust that the answers or inspirations are coming.

Focus on Gratitude for Our Body and the Experience 

While out walking or running, feel the the wind embracing each part of your body. Use every sense and every muscle to interact and connect with Mother Nature. Such consistent interaction will develop a stronger connection with nature and thus adds onto your healing. Active mediation is a practice of being immersed in the process, and the feelings and sensations of the journey.

When our active meditation is complete, we will feel more attuned, less tech obsessed, and more harmonious in our mind, body, and spirit.

Full Moon in Sagittarius, Tuesday, May 29, 2018


The morning of May 29th, a full moon takes place as the Gemini Sun opposes the Moon in Sagittarius. Full moon lunations are a time for reaping what we have sown that which was initiated as of the last new moon.



Are we feeling loony?
Our dreams are also affected by the lunar cycle. About five days prior to a full moon our dreams become stronger and clearer, peaking with the energy of the full moon. If we are not centered, the full moon can scatter our energy and our dreams may seem strange. We may become emotional, anxious or depressed during a full moon cycle, and experience our energy fluctuating to extremes. The more grounded we are entering this lunar cycle however, the less we are affected by external influences. The full moon represents a time of high energy and high power, and is a time to release and let go of all that no longer serves us in order to greet the new. In the cycle of death and rebirth, the full moon represents the initiation phase of death.

Gemini embodies the mind, and Sagittarius represents our higher awareness. The Sun in Gemini asks we think clearly and logically, while this Sagittarius full moon encourages us to be more intuitive and open minded. This full moon will help us to find a balance between these two polarities, and bring about more openness, and a sense of adventure.


This lunation will illuminate any areas in our lives where we may have an inner conflict between logic and faith, and push us to express our feelings and emotions that come up around these issues. Because much of what we will be releasing will be more emotional in nature than rational during this period, it maybe wise to do our best to exercise some tact and care in our communications with others.


This full moon transit forms a broad square with Neptune, and this energy has the potential to inspire us, or if we are ungrounded or remain focused, the potential to derail our plans. The Sun forms a trine to Mars, bringing us the fortitude we need to see our plans through, and to release anything that is no longer serving our higher good.

Full Transcript:

Hi, I’m Joy Jackson, the Backyard Mystic. This is the penultimate video in a limited series exploring concepts related to extraterrestrial disclosure and Law of One philosophy as revealed in selected episodes of Gene Roddenberry‘s classic science fiction television series “Star Trek: The Next Generation”.

In previous segments, we have addressed a variety of alien cultures interacting with humans from Earth in Star Trek’s United Federation of Planets — Vulcans and Klingons and Borg (oh my!) — but in this segment we will take a peek at some of the earliest sentient species in evidence in the Next Generation with specific interest in the incredible technologies they created during their time that are still at work thousands or millions of years later when Captain Picard and the crew of the Enterprise encounter them. Let’s begin…

Earth humans are relative newcomers to the galactic community in Star Trek:The Next Generation, with all of the other major Federation member species — the Vulcans, the Andorians, and the Tellarites — developing warp drive capability for interstellar travel hundreds or thousands of years before the people of Earth. We see a similar trend in the history of technological advancement and the development of interstellar space flight among the analogous species from other major galactic alliances — the Klingons, the Romulans, and the Ferengi (who apparently purchased warp drive technology from the Breen Confederacy instead of developing it themselves!).

However, even these more advanced and established extraterrestrial species are only recent contributors to the collective history of sentient lifeforms in the Milky Way Galaxy in Star Trek, where the fictional historical record describes civilizations who explored and conquered space before the mainstream scientific date for the dawn of modern humankind on Earth, before the time of the dinosaurs, and even before the time of our planet itself.

Ancient Star Trek civilizations are well visited in various canon sources, but if we focus solely on information from on-screen depictions in Next Generation episodes, there are just a few fascinating details revealed about some of those species; however, these details stir the imagination with their possibilities. When we examined 24th century advanced technologies in our earlier segment, we talked about “going places and making stuff” as the benefits of this ingenuity — and, to be sure, the ancient aliens in Star Trek TNG demonstrate similar aims — but as beings whose cultures span not only the majority of the galaxy but also thousands — or hundreds of thousands — of years of galactic history, we find that these ancient civilizations also develop technologies to preserve and disseminate the legacy of their very existence, keeping their culture alive even after they themselves have perished from normative reality. The oldest of Star Trek’s civilizations live on in the 24th Century through the remarkable technologies they left behind — crossing vast distance, spanning time, and controlling evolution.



In TNG’s second season, the episode “Contagion” presents the Enterprise’s white-knuckle race against the Romulans and mechanical catastrophe, when Captain Picard orders his ship into the Neutral Zone, a no-mans-land mandated by treaty between the Federation and the Romulan Star Empire, one that maintains an uneasy detente between these opposing galactic alliances. The Enterprise undertakes a rescue mission to save its sister ship, the USS Yamato, whose captain made a desperate choice to violate the treaty in order to keep the powerful ancient technology of Iconian gateways — what we would call “stargates” — out of Romulan hands. Picard learns the Yamato, beset by mysterious shipboard failures and subsequently destroyed, was able to confirmed the existence and the location of the homeworld of the ancient Iconians, believed by most in the galaxy to be only a myth.

From four hundred thousand until two hundred thousand years earlier, the Iconians, powerful and technologically advanced lifeforms whose industry still confounds Federation scientists in the 24th Century, travelled tens of thousands of light-years without spacecraft, teleporting instantaneously across vast distances using their portals to subjugate lesser species and expand their influence until a war of revolt ensued and their civilization fell. Little light is shed on the principles and power sources upon which the gateways operate, but the collosal ramifications of such an advanced travel technology — and its dark potential for exploitation — are made clear.

Long-distance teleportation technologies with ancient origins and the idea of “stargates” are incredible constructs in both academic and popular culture with which most of us are familiar on some level.

The Iconians in Star Trek reached mythological status as “demons of air and darkness” among the people they conquered. In our reality, similar theories have been proffered regarding the existence and tenure of technologically advanced extraterrestrial beings appearing and representing themselves as deities to populations on Earth within the mainstream span of human history on Earth, narratives presumably intended to instill fear in and maintain control over indigenous populations. After all, a stargate seems like powerful magic even today.


Secret Space Program insider Corey Goode and investigator David Wilcock have compared notes relating to disclosed reports of networks and subnetworks of stargates built by various extraterrestrial factions long ago linking Earth and other points in our solar system to the rest of the galaxy. From these accounts, though not well understood in terms of physics or engineering, instantaneous travel across spacetime using these ancient portals differs only superficially from the on-screen depictions we see in Star Trek and other media — a fascinating prospect.



Conquering the galaxy will only get you so far, of course; eventually, your number comes up. How do you keep your culture alive — preserving the collective legacy of your species — even after your civilization crumbles? There are two notable Next Generation episodes that explore this question and highlight specific ancient technologies.

In “The Inner Light”, TNG’s 25th and last regular episode before the Season 5 cliffhanger “Time’s Arrow”, the Enterprise encounters a thousand-year-old uncrewed space probe that responds to scans and hails by emitting a beam that knocks Captain Picard unconscious and sends him into in what appears to be coma. In this critically acclaimed episode, Picard consciousness is taken by the mysterious probe, quite literally, on the odyssey of a lifetime. Picard awakens on the planet Kataan in the persona of an artisan and amateur astronomer named Kamin in a less advanced, primarily agrarian post-industrial civilization of humanoids who appear virtually indistinguishable from Earth humans. Kamin’s family convince him that his memories of life on a starship are just dreams brought on by illness, and Picard spends the next several decades in acceptance, living a placid life, but he is beset by his observations of environmental change that ultimately indicate that the planet is drying up as radiation levels increase and the sun approaches its supernova, destroying Kamin’s civilization as it obliterates Kataan’s entire solar system. Having achieved sufficient technology by the time Kamin reaches old age, the people of Kataan are able to “upload consciousness” and memories of their culture into space probes capable of interstellar flight, archives in space that will tell their civilization’s story to those they encounter. What has happened suddenly becomes clear to Picard, who wakes up on the Enterprise with less than an hour passed, having experienced an entire lifetime on an alien planet a thousand years before. The natives of Kataan offer an example of a different kind of ancient technology, one that doesn’t necessarily outstrip that of the 24th Century, but one that achieves a remarkable accomplishment nonetheless.



“Masks”, TNG Season 7 episode 17, is often panned by critics as incomprehensible and difficult to follow, but it explores some similar ideas and showcases its own incredible ancient technology of cultural preservation — if you stick with it. In this episode, the Enterprise investigates a mysterious comet in deep space, which, when its icy shell comes away, is actually a truly ancient automated interstellar archive, launched by the inhabitants of the D’Arsay system and traveling through deep space for the last 87 million years. When the Enterprise scans the archive, elements of its ancient alien computer program invade the ship’s systems like a sophisticated virus, in innocuous ways at first but eventually putting the ship in grave danger and taking over android officer Data’s positronic brain as it directs the ship’s replicator systems to recreate onboard the Enterprise portions of an alien environment and parts of a city from millions of years ago on a far-flung planet. Ultimately, Picard and his officers are able to decode the mysterious computer algorithms and interface with the archive using Data as a liaison, saving the ship, and leaving Data in possession of the of the conscious memories of tens of thousands of alien lives from the distant past. Despite its dramatic flaws, this episode demonstrates the potential of certain technologies to preserve and expand cultural influence across the reaches of time and space in our normative reality.

Archives in space and constructs of sentient extraterrestrial species standing through time: these are among the most amazing possibilities of which we’ve learned from disclosed reports received from people inside the Secret Space Program, and some tangible evidence exists and is acknowledged in the mainstream.



Insider information suggests that ‘Oumuamua, the first recorded interstellar object, designated by scientists as Asteroid 1I/2017 U1 and observed entering our solar system in 2017 is actually a 230-meter-long construct over a billion years old made by extraterrestrials identified within the SSP as the Ancient Builder Race, a species who have left structures throughout the planets and moons of our solar system and those nearby. The name ‘Oumuamua itself means “messenger from afar” or “scout”.

The Moon has fascinated us since the first humans on Earth looked up into the night sky, but SSP insider Corey Goode has revealed starling information suggesting it is artificial in origin. He discloses the possibility of a large rocky planetary body in orbit within our system where the Asteroid Belt lies today. Inhabitants from this “Super Earth”, referred to in Law of One philosophy as “Maldek” and as “Phaeton” in the controversial Disruption Theory, are reported to have built Earth’s moon prior to their planet’s destruction as part of larger events in a storied cosmic history of our solar system dating back millions of years to a time when extraterrestrials are also said to have constructed and inhabited vast subterranean environments on Earth. [Can you dig it?]


The episodes we have discussed previously show us examples of Star Trek’s ancient civilizations using technology to cross the galaxy and leave a legacy of who they were that lasts long into the future. As amazing as these accomplishments may seem, perhaps the greatest and most significant marvel of ancient technology depicted in TNG is that of a race known in official sources as the Progenitors, the biological ancestors of virtually all the prominent species in the Alpha and Beta Quadrants of the galaxy in the time of Star Trek TNG. The benevolent Progenitors come into being in Star Trek’s Milky Way Galaxy about the same time as Earth’s sun, and by two billion years ago they possess not only interstellar travel and archive ability but also the science required to control the evolutionary biology of entire planets, contributing their own genetic material to many sentient species to come — including Earth humans — using what we today think of as “starseed” technology.



In “The Chase” , TNG Season 6 episode 20, Picard and the crew of the Enterprise find themselves locked in competition with Klingon, Romulan, and Cardassian scientists to unlock a galaxy-spanning genetic mystery, bringing them all together to discover the Progenitors’ legacy. We will explore “The Chase” and all of its ideas and implications in depth and detail in our final segment.

Our best information from the Secret Space Program describes these extraterrestrials known as the Ancient Builder Race — entities whose name for themselves is either unclear or unknown — with startling parallels to the role of the Progenitors in Star Trek. Known to some as the Guardians, the Ancient Builders used their interstellar travel capability to visit habitable planets in many parts of the galaxy; there, in addition to establishing colonies and building impressive architectural structures, they augmented the indigenous biology of each world with their own DNA to shape the evolution of many sentient humanoid species all linked with a common genetic makeup. These sentient species are literal “starseeds” in a scientific context rather than a spiritual one, but if the shared history of their evolution across the galaxy bears out in fact, their origin — which is to say our origin — truly demonstrates the oneness of us all in a very compelling way.

More to come…

The Tarahumara and the Power of Chia Seeds


After hundreds of years chia seeds have had a resurgence due to their wide-ranging health and nutritional benefits, such as gastrointestinal health, detoxification, blood sugar stabilization, mental clarity, and sustained endurance.

While the medicinal and nutritional properties of chia seeds have been purported for many years, this superfood soared in popularity after its mention in the New York Times best seller Born to Run , which describes chia seeds as an almost “magical” indigenous dietary staple of the Tarahumara Indians, a tribe of ultra runners that dwell deep in the Copper Canyons of Mexico. The Tarahumara run  for hundreds of miles at top speed seemingly without effort — at times for pure enjoyment — in nothing more than sandals as they have for centuries, alongside the elite ultra running legend, Scott Jurek.


The specific vital nutrients that give chia seeds their superfood status and makes them so nutrient-dense include Omega-3 essential fatty acids, antioxidants, protein, calcium, iron, potassium, vitamins A, B, E, and D, and other trace minerals. Just two tablespoons of chia seeds contains ten grams of fiber and six grams of protein, and they provide more calcium than milk, more Omega-3s than salmon, more iron than spinach, and more antioxidants than blueberries. It is easy for one to see why Aztec ancient tribes used chia seeds to pay tributes and taxes to priests and nobility.


The following is a list of the myriad of ways chia seeds can enhance athletic performance and our overall health, as well as some simple ways to can incorporate chia seeds into your diet.


Because chia seeds absorb thirty times their weight in water, they help regulate body fluid levels and retain electrolytes, both key in the battle against dehydration. For long workouts in high heat and humidity, chia seeds are a handy way to prolong hydration.

Provides Sustained Energy

Chia seeds are incredibly absorbent, expanding up to ten times their original size when soaked in water and forming a gel-like substance. Because of this gel-forming action, chia seeds slow the conversion of carbohydrates into sugar, meaning the carbs you eat will be able to fuel your body for longer periods of time. The regulation of carbohydrate release also stabilizes blood sugar levels.

Anti-inflammatory Benefits

Omega-3 essential fatty acids are a proven antiinflammatory, and chia seeds are loaded with them. It has been discovered that the Aztecs consumed chia seeds to alleviate aches and joint pain. The essential fatty acids found in chia seeds alleviate skin problems, promote good neurological health, and can help improve the prognosis of various mental health conditions.

Supports Healthy Weight Maintenance

Because chia seeds are very high in fiber and nutritionally dense, they help use feel full faster and longer when we eat them. The absorbent qualities regulate carbohydrate conversion, preventing blood sugar spikes and providing sustained energy. Recent studies have shown that, in addition reducing body fat, chia seeds also help prevent high cholesterol and high triglycerides.

Accelerated and Improved Workout Recovery

Amino acids are the building blocks of protein, while antioxidants are a powerful defense against free radicals. Chia seeds are full of both. Eat them soon after your workout to jumpstart recovery.


How to Prepare Chia Seeds

Chia seeds can be added to enhance many recipes. Unlike flax seeds, they do not have to be presoaked in order to be digestible. However, it is worth noting that sprouting chia seeds will only increase their nutritional benefits and digestibility even further. Pour a tablespoon or two in a favorite smoothie, salad, or beverage.


A popular preparation method, adopted from the Tarahumara Indians, is to make a chia seed drink energy drink, by soaking two tablespoons in a glass of water or raw fruit juice for about five to ten minutes. As a general rule, one part chia seeds to seven parts liquid will works well. The chia seeds will absorb the liquid and form into a gelatinous mixture. The seeds have a mild and a light nutty flavor, and a cooked tapioca like consistency.

Raw Organic Chia Fresca Recipe



1 cup water
1 tablespoon organic chia seeds
2 tablespoons raw and organic fresh lemon or lime juice.
2 teaspoons raw local honey
½ tsp unrefined natural salt (optional, for additional mineral and electrolyte replacement and support)


Stir the seeds into the water and allow them to soak for at least 10-15 minutes. Add lemon or lime juice and raw honey and whisk.

Full Transcript: 

Hi, I’m Joy Jackson, the Backyard Mystic. This is the eighth video in a limited series exploring concepts related to extraterrestrial disclosure and Law of One philosophy as revealed in selected episodes of Gene Roddenberry‘s classic science fiction television series “Star Trek: The Next Generation.

In a previous segment, we addressed the philosophical concept of service to self, and in other segments we have touched on aspects of universal spiritual principles. In this segment we take a new approach — going boldly where we haven’t gone before — to explore Law of One philosophy in full scope as it is depicted in and supported by — expressly, thematically, and sometimes metaphorically — Star Trek TNG. Engage!


What is the Law of One? It is a philosophy that holds that everything we know of in the universe — and everything we can know of in all of existence — consists of the same spiritual energy from a common consciousness, and that consciousness strives toward reintegration into a perfect and unified whole. The Law of One philosophy is described as coming to us from beyond our current common perception of existence, comprising twelve precepts, or Universal Laws, that govern the flow of this spiritual energy, much like the mainstream laws of physics we adopt to help us to explain the behavior of matter and energy we observe in our physical world.

Through our understanding and employment of these Universal Laws we can see better the underlying mechanisms of our universe and become more successful co-creators of our own reality. The importance of these principles stems from the ubiquity of their relevance in our lives.

Here are the twelve Universal Laws…

  1. The Universal Law of Unity
  2. The Universal Law of Relativity
  3. The Universal Law of Perpetual Transformation
  4. The Universal Law of Compensation
  5. The Universal Law of Vibration
  6. The Universal Law of Attraction
  7. The Universal Law of Correspondence
  8. The Universal Law of Cause and Effect
  9. The Universal Law of Action
  10. The Universal Law of Polarity
  11. The Universal Law of Rhythm
  12. The Universal Law of Gender

[That’s a lot to think about!] Despite the fundamental resonance and elegant simplicity of the philosophy, study and appreciation of the Law of One in depth is a sophisticated undertaking requiring — at least — a lifetime, but for those of you new to it as a spiritual perspective, it may be helpful to group and contrast these twelve Universal Laws using more familiar rubrics from our modern lexicon…

“Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness.”


[Please note that these are not hard and fast categories, but rather groupings by prominent aspects of each law]

[Here we go!]


The first group of Universal Laws we can examine within the Law of One serve to explain and expand our understanding of the true nature of existence and the interaction of spiritual energy with all living things — the essence of life itself…

The Universal Law of Unity — the guiding precept, that all is one and that all things that exist are ultimately of the same consciousness within many forms and configurations. This latter aspect of the Law of Unity, the idea of “infinite diversity in infinite combinations”, is a philosophical fundamental that Roddenberry’s Vulcan character Mr. Spock introduced to Star Trek audiences back in the Original Series, and it continues to manifest itself in Next Generation storylines.


Captain Picard and his crew discover this oneness when they uncover secrets of the human genetic code in the critically-acclaimed Season 6 episode “The Chase”. We will explore this episode in greater depth in our final segment.

The Universal Law of Compensation — that every action in the universe is compensated with an energy equal to that invested, an idea intertwined with the Law of Cause & Effect and the concept of Karma. Quite simply, we reap what we sow.


The flow and return of spiritual energy play out with high drama in Season 6’s “Man of the People”.


The Universal Law of Correspondence — that all there is in the physical world has a corresponding principle in the etheric world. All one experiences in their external reality is a reflection of one’s inner world or spiritual existence, hence the saying, “As above, so below.”

Commander Riker’s inner and outer worlds connect as TNG Season 2 ends on a down note with “Shades of Gray”, widely held as the WORST Next Generation episode, but full of resonance with this important theme nonetheless.


The Universal Law of Cause and Effect — known as karma in Buddhist philosophy, that every one of our actions, thoughts, words, and emotions ultimately begets an equal reaction or consequence in our lives.

This theme plays out subtly as the events of Captain Picard’s past command raise challenges many years later in “The Battle” from Season 1.


The next group of Universal Laws concern the nature of our personal freedom as sentient beings and the importance and consequences of the choices we make.

The Universal Law of Relativity — that everything is relative and that our experience in the physical world is built necessarily from comparisons and contrasts, comprehension of which can allow one to change one’s experience of reality by a shift in one’s perspective.

The Enterprise crew struggles to comprehend and respond when they stumble into a confrontation with a new life form totally alien in nature in the first season episode “Home Soil”.


The Universal Law of Perpetual Transformation — that all spiritual energy and consciousness is in a constant state of movement and change, giving our positive thoughts, emotions, and actions the power to transform lower vibrations into higher forms.

Heralded as one of the very best Next Generation stories in seven years, the two-part episode “Unification” sees the return of Mr. Spock from the Original Series, now a Federation ambassador embracing logic, positive thought, and implacable will on a covert mission of peace.



The Universal Law of Attraction — that the spiritual energy produced by our thoughts, emotions, and actions attracts like energy in return. Positive energies attract positive energies and negative energies attract negative ones. As with all of the Universal Laws, this principle applies to both individual and collective consciousness.

In “Liaisons” from Season 6 Picard, Worf, and Troi are compelled to reflect on aspects of their own nature as they host an alien delegation during a diplomatic exchange.


The Universal Law of Polarity — that everything exists along a continuum between poles — light and dark, hot and cold, love and hate, the divine masculine and the divine feminine, yin energy and yang energy — and that we define ourselves and our existence by the conscious choices we make to align ourselves in particular directions along our spiritual path.


TNG Season 3’s “The Survivors” tells a powerful story of beliefs, consequence, and the choice between light and darkness as the Enterprise visits a ravaged planet.

Our final category of the Universal Laws within Law of One philosophy holds the keys to happiness, an understanding of the spiritual workings of the universe that promotes harmonious existence.

The Universal Law of Vibration — that all matter, energy, thought, emotion, and consciousness in the universe has its own unique frequency of spiritual vibration. The reality we create is a reflection of our dominant vibration — manifested by our feelings, thoughts, and actions — and we build relationships with parts of the universe with which we are in spiritual resonance.

The metaphor of resonance is prominent in “Galaxy’s Child” from TNG Season 4, as the Starship Enterprise encounters a space going creature that puts the vessel in jeopardy.


The Universal Law of Rhythm — that everything in the universe moves to specific rhythms, much like natural cycles — our cycles of life and death, the seasons, the tides, and astrological cycles, to name a fe

Picard’s hostage negotiations on a distant planet stall in the first-season episode “Too Short a Season” when the aging Starfleet admiral in charge reveals his covert plan to cheat time and death, going rogue in an effort to correct a grave mistake from 40 years in the past.


The Universal Law of Gender — that all of creation manifests itself in ways we can categorize as both masculine and feminine in quality, each with its own strengths. To appreciate this continuum is to know how to be a whole and harmonious being within our collective.

In “The Outcast” from Season 5, Commander Riker meets and connects with a member of an androgynous alien species that has repressed all expression of masculine and feminine gender as part of its cultural evolution.


The Universal Law of Action — that one must take action in alignment with one’s own goals and desires in order to manifest them in one’s reality. This important precept of the Law of One philosophy in the Final Frontier of the 24th Century is woven throughout the Next Generation and well demonstrated in three significant episodes, “Tapestry” from our previous segment, “The First Duty”, and the dimension-crossing “Yesterday’s Enterprise” — all stories of understanding the universe and our role in it and acting in alignment with one’s beliefs with the highest standards of integrity in order to attain one’s goals and make a brighter future.
