The Election Goddess—An Astrological Tale

For three years, Anthony Albanese, as the leader of the Labor Party, the Opposition in Australia, was told he was “not allowed to go to the Ball”. The step-sisters spread terrible, unfair rumours about him and his faithful companions.

He had to stay behind and sweep the chimneys. So much soot and coal to clean up from the “nasty step-sisters” and their indulgent fires.

And then the miracle: The Moon Goddess appeared with the face of Aquarius. Aquarius, the bringer of Big Change and Power to the Independents.

The independents, also downtrodden for too long, rose up and made a beautiful gown for the Hero-denied.

And the step-sisters were astonished by its beauty, including the transparent glass slippers!

And the humble Albanese was able to go to the Ball, to fly to Tokyo without delay, as the new Leader of the Land.

The Independents were happy, so the People were happy. It was a new dawn! A new Beginning!

And the Aquarian Moon Goddess stayed for a day to survey the Land, and then vanished, her work completed.

And the lesson is,
if you’re planning an election
to stay in power,
you should never mess with
an Aquarian Moon!

May you always live your
Exceptional Purpose!

Gen-Z Teen Flower Essences


Kerrire Redgate | April 4 2022

ZTeen Purpose Formula

A Flower Essence Formula
for a Special Generation
& also for the Rest of Us!

Who is Gen Z ?

This Generation was born during the years when Pluto’s radio waves were filtering through the Sagittarius frequency in the Earth’s electromagnetic field. (Western Astrology does not use star constellations as its zodiac.) Today, these young people are presently aged between 14 and 27, born mostly between 1995 and early early 2008.

This means that most of the teenagers currently at school
are part of this one Sagittarius-Pluto Generation.

As very young children in the late 1990s, Gen Z was formerly known collectively as the Indigo Children as these kids displayed incredible wisdom and talents far beyond their years. It’s important now that they don’t lose their unique abilities and their confidence in their own inherent wisdom.

Where the political and economic demographics for our various Generations (analysed back to the early 20th century) are often vague and contradictory, the science of Astrology can pinpoint the precise dates (and even the minute) for these generational boundaries

I’m currently writing a research book on this topic, Pluto In Your Brain: Generations & Paradigms — you can check out the book page on my Book Series website via that link. This book is part of the first trilogy in my Astrology & Mind series, due for publication in 2023-4.

The Teenagers of this extraordinary Generation presently need guidance and support for their higher purpose in the world. As Teenagers, they are currently in an in-between state where they may not be valuing their gifts or inherent power. Although some of them are finding their voices and fighting for justice and legitimate causes, others are falling into deep depression.

This prompted me to create the Z Teen Purpose flower essence formula, designed especially for the collective issues experienced by Gen Z. This is what it covers:

  • focus & clarity of thought for complex studies
  • stimulating creative breakthrough with Purpose
  • strong sense of purpose
  • balancing left & right hemispheres of the brain to acknowledge intuition
  • creating safe boundaries without being controlling or fearing rejection
  • alleviating self-rejection, shame, guilt, fear—which create  “aloneness”
  • feeling comfortable being unique rather than feeling isolated by it
  • innovative problems-solving, lightening the load

And I’ve now come to realise that the individual flower essences in this formula can be highly beneficial for most of us right now, as we struggle with the massive changes occurring at this transitional time (in 2022) as we sit, poised  on the bridge, between two massively different global paradigms. 

Other individual flower essences and formulas can be added to this for personal issues (such as my Happy Drops, Survive!, and Power-Up formulas; and Study Boost may also be helpful for those at schools and universities). (See the link to my Bodhimind Essences site below).

50ml or 100ml external spray bottles

For a better understanding,
 let’s look further at Pluto and its effects
on the psyche of our Gen Z Teens …

Why Pluto ?

Pluto’s radio waves have been known to interfere with satellite transmissions and other radio communication and space weather inside the Earth’s field.

In the same way, Pluto can have profound effects on our psyche, as its radio waves resonate with, and stimulate, the survival mechanisms in the older (lower) areas of the brain. 

Astrologically, Pluto can stimulates not only our personal survival issues, but also those of the collective resonance that we share with others born during our same particular Pluto paradigm.

These paradigms vary in length between around 10 years and 30 years, as Pluto has a pronounced elliptical orbit, spending more time filtering through some frequencies  (which we refer to Astrologically as Signs) than it does through others.

In a separate book, I’ll be explaining how genuine astrology works, from a scientific basis.
… Currently still in the writing phase.

Generation Z will care deeply about the environment, about the circumstances people and animals have to live in. They will value freedom of thought and speech; and wide open spaces rather than tiny confinements. They will travel. They will will not ignore or choose to suppress other cultures. They will create in amazing ways.

This Generation has the scope to see beyond present boundaries. They are humanity’s hope for a Sane and Just future, for all life on this planet. But it’s important that they don’t feel hopeless in the face of our present global situation. They will only fight in a war that is just and has a higher, urgent purpose. But their instinct is not to harm.

I think of them as the Wisdom Generation.

The Paradigm
Gen Z 
have to live in

The Capricorn-Pluto Paradigm

Apart from the survival brain-resonance of the collective Generation we were each born into, all of the living Pluto Generations are also living through our current Pluto frequency paradigm.

This is what causes vast differences in the reactions from each Generation in how it copes with the current cultural dilemmas and world-trends.

Gen Z, collectively, is more sensitive
to the world situation
than any other living Generation.

And it’s a difficult time for them now as our present paradigm does not fit with their inherent ideals.

Our current Capricorn-Pluto Paradigm which began in 2008 (initiating the Global Financial Crisis, the collapse of democratic values, and the extreme climate emergency we now find ourselves in) is a foreign frequency for the collective Gen-Z / Sag-Pluto Generation to navigate. 

Whereas, their Pluto’s Sagittarius frequency drives them toward survival (Pluto) through freedom and justice (Sag) — note the huge student rebellion in Hong Kong, and the student outrage and action after particularly the horrendous Parkland high school mass-shooting in Florida USA, and now the desertions and surrendering of the young Russian soldiers in Ukraine who refuse to fight and kill without a just cause, as well as the Ukrainian GenZ people who are prepared to fight to the death to protect their country and its democratic freedoms.

The current Capricorn-Pluto Paradigm is closing down our freedoms and rights, through the rising of the Political Far-Right. Who would have thought Canada’s democracy could be in such peril? Sagittarius expands. Capricorn restricts. That’s how we learn. But we are getting closer now to the new era ahead in 2023.

The Next Pluto Paradigm

In one years’ time, in 2023, Pluto will shift gears into the Aquarius frequency, and this will be the time for many of our current teenagers to stand up and begin to make Changes. We already have Saturn in Aquarius, preparing the path of resistance and people-power Change. Even young people in Russia are risking arrest and jail time for peacefully demonstrating against Putin’s War in Ukraine.

Aquarius is the frequency that creates aversion toward restrictions that are not humane. It stimulates Revolution and Change. And it is arriving now in perfect timing for Gen Z to be awakened to their Reason for Being, and to move into their Power, even as very young adults. And this will be a 21-year paradigm — it will bring lots of Change.

Our Gen-Z Teens were born with a mission to come in and clean up the mess that my Generation (the Baby Boomers) had initiated. And given the chance, they’ll do a darned good job!

Spiritual Power

Spiritual Power

 by Kerrie Redgate

Spiritual Power

I’ve been contemplating lately about what constitutes spiritual power, as power is what you hold within, not what you give away.

It has nothing to do with physical strength. Although, the appearance of physical strength can be present in power.

I have never forgotten how impressed I was with the Aikido teachers I got to know during the year I was caretaking a large Australian tropical property, which included their beautiful Zen-style dojo. There were people there of various ages, and I witnessed the older guys lifting and carrying heavy objects with ease, as though they weighed only a kilogram or a few pounds.

Aikido is the most spiritual and harmonising of all the martial arts. It works with the ki (ch’i) of the body-mind, and is non-aggressive in nature. And I learned another interesting thing about the Aikido teachers there (and I was privileged to have met some of the top masters from Japan) — they also practise Reiki, and they are often Reiki Masters.

As with Aikido, Reiki was also developed in Japan in the early 20th century, principally as ‘a method to achieve personal perfection’, in the words of Reiki’s founder, Mikao Usui*. But in the West, we see it more as ‘a system of healing’ — I suppose because Western culture has not yet connected the idea of ‘personal perfection’ (a spiritual, not egoic, concept) with ‘healing’!

Personal Perfection would have to be the source of true inner power. This would be a combination of the spiritual and the physical attributes of life in perfect harmony and balance. This also relates to the Six Perfections in Buddhist philosophy, which I’ve found in the astrology chart (see my Zoom-In sessions page on my main site).

When I look back to find the one event that changed everything for me, that opened my eyes to a greater spiritual reality, and gave me a strong sense of being a part of that, it would be the first time I received a Reiki Empowerment, in 1986. The palms of my hands were hot and tingling for almost two days!

I’ve now come to realize that as with all electrical systems, the sensation of heat or warmth in Reiki is generated from the resistance between two bodies of differing voltage charges.

So the amount of heat radiating from a healer’s hands is not necessarily a qualification of her healing ability. My hands had reacted so strongly because my body’s electrical circuits (nervous system) had previously been somewhat resistant to this kind of flow of charge regarding the channeling of this level of energy from my crown. So the Reiki attunement released that resistance and balanced my crown, heart, and hands for a more powerful flow.

Kerrie Redgate’s Kirlian Photographic hand-prints (Nov 19 & 16, 1989)

LEFT before Reiki activation … RIGHT after 10 minutes of Reiki activation.
LEFT print is normal … RIGHT the Reiki energy has overwhelmed the normal hand print!
( I was at Level 2 Reiki then ) 
Note: The Kirlian photographer thought the blown-out print indicated I was close to death!
He’d never seen anything like it before.
But I have seen identical Kirlian prints from another spiritual healer.

I had always been interested in spiritual things, had practiced hatha yoga since 1968, and was engrossed in other aspects of Indian culture from about the age of 10! But I didn’t become a living part of that until I felt the Reiki power flowing through me, until I could feel the healing effect I could have on other people.

That was a rebirth for me. My intuition regarding other people was suddenly switched on more consciously, and my Heart and Head seemed to become aligned.

Soon after completing Level 2 Reiki that same year, I gave notice on my day-job. I had to finally embark on my new life as an astrologer. It was so fast. It was a compelling decision. Not even a decision. Just a knowing.

Years later, I received Reiki 3; and then the Teacher/Master level in 1997. I began teaching Reiki not as a full-time occupation, but just as the opportunities appeared.

I’m remembering all this as Neptune (our personal sense of spirituality) is about to Aspect my Hygeia asteroid (spiritual healing). 


I can’t guarantee that Reiki would have the same effect on you. But if you’re in Australia, and if you are interested in opening to a new spiritual power, widening your intuition, increasing your natural healing power, and fast-tracking your life, I’m now offering Reiki courses here in Brisbane, Queensland.

My large, ground-floor, open-space apartment is ideal for small classes. And it’s a lovely environment among the trees, and with the river just around the corner, and New Farm Park nearby.

For personal attention and focus, I only ever teach Reiki for 3 to 7 students in a class — and from the original Buddhist perspective. If you’re interested in this, click the image below for more information on all my Reiki Courses.

Reiki Courses with Kerrie Redgate (ad banner)

— If you’ve already received a Reiki 1 Empowerment, and you’re interested in Reiki 2, let me know. More information on all Reiki courses on my new Reiki site via the image link above.

— I can also teach Reiki 3 (this is not the master/teacher level), if you’ve completed Reiki Level 2 and have been using the symbols diligently (as you’ll be learning how to give a Booster Attunement).

— I also offer private tuition classes for individuals (at a higher fee, of course).

There are so many astounding opportunities in this lifetime for spiritual development. We can avail ourselves of any of them. And Reiki is one of the most supreme. It stays with you for life and beyond (better than a tattoo!), and brings healing to yourself, and consequently to others.

If Reiki is not for you, or if I’m not the right teacher for you, that’s OK, of course. It’s so important, though, during these unsettling times, to develop the spiritual side of your life, and to maintain a positive joyful ambience in your Heart. There are many healing and meditative systems, and teachers, to help you to generate pure spiritual power within, which is ultimately the power of compassion.

And through all those empowering systems, just as with Reiki, everything you touch becomes sanctified.

Something Dark This Way Comes

Something Dark
This Way Comes


It’s getting closer

It will be here exactly
on November 12 2019
at Midnight UT!

( 11am AEDT, 4pm Nov 11 PST )

If you’ve had an astrology session with me, you will understand the depth and subtlety of the sub-routines within the brain, and how they can sabotage our best intentions with precision and ease.
And one in particular lurks in the darkest recesses until stirred by circumstance to take the reins of our life, and steer us into a safe existence of mundanity.

We are at such a time…

No, this is not Pluto. It’s Hades, his Greek counterpart. Hades is an obscure phenomenon in the solar system that has never been sighted by telescope, radar dish, space probes, or other technological devices. But I’ve researched Hades for the past 30+ years (my book arriving possibly late 2022), with due respect to astrologer Alfred Witte who  discovered this enigma in the 1920s…

And now I’ve been Hadesed!! 

The entire top half of this blog post has mysteriously vanished! I’ve done a dig to see if I can find it in an old revision in WordPress, but it’s not there!! So, please bear with me, as I rewrite this to explain exactly what this transit is all about. … !!! [KR]

PART 2  | DECEMBER 4 2019

Finally, today, I’m attempting to finish the missing part of this blog post. And this is a fitting time, as the transit is within 1/2 degree again, and closing (again).

The global transit that is causing so much personal and professional sabotage is the Transneptunian (or Uranian) Point, Hades, being in alignment with the transiting North Node of the Moon.

Since ancient times, especially in India, the Moon’s Nodes have been considered as being profoundly spiritual in nature.

Being “nodes”, just as in music, they are points of intersecting  frequencies that are cancelled out, like a finger placed on a guitar string over a fret. There is no vibration where the finger has dampened the string, although this does shorten the string to produce a different sound frequency. 

The frequencies that are being cancelled out in the Earth’s field are at the points where the path of the moon (not necessarily the moon itself) around the Earth crosses the plane of the path of the Earth around the sun.

The moon’s orbit is on a 5˚  plane askew to our path, producing two points of intersection directly opposite each other at the same time. These are points where the moon’s orbital path rises to cut through the path of the Earth around the sun, and also where it sinks below that plane. These are the Moon’s Nodes.

The North Node is where the moon’s orbital path is rising (in the direction of Earth’s North Polar region) above our plane. This is the point where our spiritual purpose for this life is stimulated by forces outside the normal functioning of our astrology charts.

Remember, there is no vibration at the Nodes. So this is a place beyond our normal experience within our conscious state of mind. It’s a place of spiritual happenings.

This is why the Moon’s Nodes are so relevant in our astrology charts. They set important frequencies that we should ignite, ourselves, from our spiritual awareness.

Over the past 34 years, I’ve found that the North Node is also where Karmic Agreements (as I call them) take place. These Agreements had been made long before we were born, and are part of our plan,  where other people step in to fulfill the Agreement they have with us.

This is not karmic in terms of any kind of compensation, as the Sanskrit word karma simply means ‘action’ (in Buddhist terms, it’s the result of our prior actions as causes and conditions). Rather, these are steps that others take to help us move into action for our growth—regardless of whether we had asked them to be nasty or kind. They are karmic as they are the results of prior agreements. And they do force us into action. 

It’s important to remember that these Karmic Agreements have stepped outside the bounds of the frequencies within our astrology charts. They are not influenced by any currents in time and space.

Most people do unwittingly fulfill their prior Agreements—unless they’re stoned or drunk, which disconnects them from the part of the brain that accesses their higher mind while they’re experiencing their more primitive and emotional limbic system; and also, unless Hades is in alignment with the North Node! 

So, right now we have the situation where the master saboteur in the mind-stream can simply march into our lives (and consciousness) unhindered.

There are no gatekeepers at the Nodes.
(More on this in a forthcoming book.)

And due to this sabotaging influence, many people are not fulfilling their Karmic Agreements. So, this can leave some of us feeling a bit stuck.  

And on a practical note, have you noticed how many companies decided to alter their Terms & Conditions during these past couple of months? Not only altering them, but often to the detriment of themselves and their clients and customers!

I had email arguments with one company who have severely limited the number of people I can introduce to their services (through me simply using their platform), by suddenly restricting my use as a customer, of their platform. Another company did exactly the same thing at the same time.

Both companies had the advantage of free advertising via their branding on what I was sharing with my own clients. Preventing this is dumb. I’ve now pretty-much abandoned one of those companies and have had to go to the opposition of the other one to cater to more clients.

During this transit, not all, but many people have had many things go wrong in their lives, and within various areas and levels of drama. And of course, they blamed themselves. I was not immune, either. I was almost at the point of packing up my work and heading out to easy, dull employment somewhere! 

Things began to shift more happily on a personal level for many people right after the exact conjunction of Hades to the North Node in the sky. Energy started to move again. I think we’d all had so much of this transit already, that we had done our dash with it during the time when the North Node had moved into position within 1/2 degree of Hades.

But the transit is heading back again, as the North Node is shifting back towards the Hades.

. . . And, of course, not having finished this post on Dec 4th, I was determined to complete it today (December 8th) . . . And so we had a power outage all afternoon! No electricity! No modem, no internet.

Clever little Hades . . .

PART 3  |  DECEMBER 10 2019

But I’m back (finalising this in the wee hours), and laughing. . . That’s all you can do with Hades. Until he really starts playing dirty pool.

It’s not a big bad planet up there in the cosmos. (There are no ‘bad’ planets.) It’s us. Hades is an aspect of our own mind. But something up there triggers a subtle memory we would really rather not recall. However, Hades does show us how powerful our minds actually are. 

So I’ll leave this top section of this post, with a couple of dates for you to check over for the coming weeks, so you can be forewarned of any Hades shenanigans in your own psyche. If you’re blessed to have nothing in your chart around 9˚ to 10˚,  you may dodge this one. 

[Dec 6 2020: The world had no idea, at the time, of what was transpiring in Wuhan, China, during these transits, where a stealth-like deadly virus seemed to be spreading out of control! A pandemic had never occurred to me, as being the result of our use of these transits, but we are just too clever — it’s a perfect global sabotage!]

NEXT DATES: The Transiting North Node will be exactly 1/2 degree from Hades again on December 14 (2019), so that’s allowing Hades to sneak through again. Meanwhile they merge even closer until January 23 (2020), when they’ll be exactly aligned again, and will then begin to separate. [Added Dec 6 2020 Note: Check this timing with what was happening in China regarding the Covid-19 crisis and announcement!]

Inserted July 13 2021 ]
Exact transit
of Hades (as the Nodes have moved back a sign), this time in a quincunx aspect (150˚) to the transiting Moon’s South Node (so, also a semi-sextile 30˚ the North Node, but the quincunx is the stronger aspect) on July 9 2021. This geometrical aspect is always an initiation process. And the South Node is the Past, something hidden but still within us.

We have to make Wisdom from our Past, not fear or regret. Lots of people in a tizz right now. This quincunx aspect will be hanging around for a while yet, so stay on target with your goals, don’t be discouraged, and keep your Heart open! It’s a big world that needs every one of us to do our bit.

Out of the Darkness

The thing about astrological transits is that even though they sometimes recur, once you’ve mastered the energy they’re presenting to you, the recurring transit won’t affect you any more. But if you missed the opportunity the first time, you’ll get another whallop next time around!

BUT, you have many great resources within you!

You have a Heart (don’t miss the 3rd episode of my podcast, “The Sun—Your Heart—and Purpose”, where I elaborate on the Heart, astrologically and energetically). You can read it on my podcast site via the above link or listen to it there or on your favourite podcast platform.

You have your spiritual consciousness—though, this can be dampened down by a brain hijack.

Three planets (well, two and one “planetoid”) can help with any inner struggle:

Mars is a terrific defender against mundanity. I was slipping down, myself, as I have a couple of significant things between 9 1/2 and 10 degrees of two respective Signs. But then Mars came along and shook up my Hygeia asteroid (our highest healing capacity) from within a very close proximity, and she was awoken like Snow White being kissed by a prince. She immediately pranced off and shouted at the two Hades-dazed bodies in my chart and they immediately sprang back into action.

. . . Well, that’s how it felt to me!

And then there is Uranus. He’ll stir anything up. But when he does stir us, we have to be careful we don’t fall into an angry appraisal of the circumstances. Instead, we have to innovate, find new answers. And fast. And through Uranus, we can learn equanimity (the hard way!).

But there is another bodhisattva-source within us.

The ultimate challenge (or rather, ‘initiation’) of this current transit between Hades and the North Node—in your life and mine—is to recognise where we are placing our emphasis. Whether we’re focused on living through our “Self-Cherishing” survival instincts or our Compassion 

And it’s principally our Compassion that can overturn any argument from Hades. This quality of Heart-and-Mind can be accessed through the planetoid Chiron as the expression of our Bodhicitta, our ‘awakened mind’, which is hell-bent on being here for the benefit of others.

What other meaning can life have?

. . . Bless Hades and thank him for sharing! 

Bodhisattva: (Sanskrit) “courageous awakened being”; one who dedicates his/her life to helping others find liberation

Bodhicitta: (Sanskrit: “c” pronounced “ch” as in “church”) “the awakened mind”. This is the mind of Enlightenment, the mind that has detached from self and from mundane rewards, and focuses on assisting other beings. This is an attribute of the Bodhisattva (which is the potential of each one of us)

Chiron Into Aries

Now a Podcast Bonus Episode

Chiron Into Aries

Update: March 5 2020

Here’s the link to this episode’s page
on my podcast website:

NOTE: I’ve made the video ‘Private’ on YouTube, and have adapted it for the podcast instead. There are some new bits here that I’d originally edited out for the video, and other bits from the video version that I’ve now deleted, so the podcast version is not exactly the same.

From my Description Notes under the YouTube video:

I’ve been working with Chiron in personal astrology charts for over 30 years. I don’t see Chiron as a ‘wound’ of any kind, and certainly not the ‘wounded healer’, but a vital key to the entire chart.

Chiron moving into Aries on Feb 18 2019, has triggered a subtle brain-change in our attitudes to our own life paths. Here, I explain a positive view of Chiron in our lives, and its 10-year transit through Aries.

A NOTE for clarification: The Sign frequency that Chiron is filtering through is more pertinent for the masses, for our collective resonance, as this is a shared experience that lasts for years.

The House position of Chiron at your birth (which depends on the precise time of day when you were born) is more pertinent as a frequency for your own personal expression, as are the Aspects to Chiron at that time.

For calculating complete asteroid lists, see the SIRIUS Software program (Windows) by Cosmic Patterns Software—it can be found at . And thanks to David Cochrane there for his Chiron glyph from SIRIUS. Check out his YouTube channel, David Cochrane Astrology. For information on how I use SIRIUS (and on my MacBook!) for calculating full lists of asteroids, see my webpage

I’ll have online courses, on my system of astrology, up and running soon (and will of course announce them here, in the newsletter, and everywhere I can!).

And a final Thank-you to Joe Bagale for making his wonderful “The Making of Thumbs Up” music available for use on YouTube. I never tire of it! [March 2020: I had used it on the video version. But my podcast features my own music, “Zen of Smooth”]

Cheers! Have a happy Chiron-in-Aries adventure!

May you always live your

Feng Shui Tip: Clocks & Your Health

Feng Shui Tip :

Clocks & Your Health

There is basically nothing wrong with clocks,
apart from one exception…

During our workdays, most of us rely on our smartphones or computers to keep track of the time of day. And now that the Apple Watch has been introduced to the world, more people are wearing wrist watches again (that’s another story!), of various brands. But at home, many people still like to have a clock on a wall or on a dresser, to see the time at a glance. Sometimes it’s an antique clock, a family heirloom, or a favourite modern design that enhances the space.

As Feng Shui is a system that helps us design our living spaces for an utmost advantage regarding our health, prosperity, relationships, and any other area of our life, every detail of our environment is included in a Feng Shui appraisal of our home and work areas.

So what is it about the humble clock?

Well, it isn’t all clocks that we are concerned with here, just a particular type: the dreaded TICKING clock!

I recall a Feng Shui appraisal I had done for a small adult family where each of the members was suffering from fatigue, confusion, depression, and general frustration with their life goals. There were definite blockages to their psychological well-being throughout the home.

There was one thing that I was immediately aware of, as soon as I had stepped inside their dwelling. It was impossible to miss, as it made a noise that sliced through the otherwise peaceful ambience of the space. A loud, evenly-toned, rhythmical tick…tick…tick…tick…tick… 

Try it right now, sit comfortably, close your eyes, and slowly repeat that word with one second breaks between, mimicking the sound of your average clock. “Tick…tick…tick…tick…”, as many times as you like. After a short while, you’ll begin to feel relaxed, and then drowsy. You might even want to have a snooze! 

The problem is in the way the brain processes sound. The brain functions on frequencies, which are pulses of what we call ‘sound’ that have wavelength and amplitude (like the gif in the banner above). The brain then entrains with those frequencies, locks them in memory, and records our reaction to those frequencies (as harmful or pleasant) for later our responses and strategies.

When a frequency has a regular rhythm and the same tone, it becomes more easily anchored into the brain. If that same simple sound continues unabated, the brain activates only its own circuits (and synaptic connections) that resonate with that rhythm. The higher the frequency, the more the front part of the brain is activated—this is our executive centre where our decisions are made, and where we use our volition to change old patterns. (Think of the difference between the slow, steady drum beat of a dirge and the exciting Tokai drumming of Japan.)

So, if the rhythm is slower and has a lower frequency sound (like a ticking clock, which has a very slow pulse), the lower centres of the brain are activated, such as our survival-based, autonomic “reptilian brain” near the base of the skull. This is our oldest brain area, in terms of our human evolution. 

When our older survival brain is more responsive than our prefrontal cortex in our forehead area, we can become tired or stressed, and we may lack vitality and enthusiasm for anything in life. We can’t make decisions based on our wisdom. This is what was happening to the family I observed, with the ticking clock in the centre of their home. 

So if you wake up tired, or come home to an energy that dampens your enthusiasm, and you have a ticking clock somewhere in your environment, it may be time to retire the clock… And of course, sleeping with your wi-fi modem switched on can have the same subtle effect on your brain, but in a different brain area that may disturb more than your dreams. But that’s another story!

Uranus into Taurus


At 8:28 AM UT (Greenwich England) on the 6th of March 2019, Uranus settled into the Taurus frequency.
It will be there, oddly enough, until the same time (8:28 AM UT) on April 26 2026—so that’s a good 7 years.

We experienced a precursor to this when Uranus dipped his toes in the mud of Taurus on May 16 2018 (UT). And as Uranus provides such a fast-moving frequency for us, it often affects the brain a little ahead of any exact transit. So, it was May 14 2018 (U.S. date) when the U.S. opened its new Embassy in Jerusalem, asserting its recognition of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. This certainly “threw mud” in the face of the Palestinians who were of course outraged.

This was also a most unfortunate date, as it coincided with the anniversary of the ethnic cleansing of Palestinian towns by Zionist paramilitaries in 1948. Plus, this was the day prior to the anniversary of the establishment of the State of Israel.

The result was severely violent clashes in the Gaza Strip, with loss of life and thousands of Palestinian injuries. We’ll get to the astrological “why” in just a moment.

Another Shift

Uranus moved backwards (so to speak: retrograded, in astro-talk), to land in Aries again on the now historical day in November 2018 when the U.S. Mid-Term Elections resulted in a massive ‘blue wave’ that overtook the country, where a significantly higher number of voters decided to take charge of their rights and independence by not only actually voting in the Mid-Terms, but by electing an unprecedented number of women, mostly Democrats, to the U.S House of Representatives. This gave the House back to the Democrats, placing Nancy Pelosi firmly back into the Speaker position, regaining the Gavel. This also places Pelosi as 3rd in line for the Presidency. So if President Trump and VP Pence both go down together, after the Mueller Investigation is concluded… An even bigger power shift may occur! 

And Back Again for the Long Ride

So, now we find ourselves with Uranus filtering again through the Taurus frequency, and for a solid 7 years this time. Uranus stirs either our hatred and aversions (evident from the violence at the Gaza Strip), or it stirs our need for equanimity in our lives, as well as our humanitarian goals

The plot of Robert Mueller‘s meticulous investigation of the Russian Collusion issue, sidelined by the Obstruction of Justice case building against Trump, is certainly thickening. And with Michael Cohen‘s most recent testimonies to the Intelligence Committee, and ongoing testimonies for the Southern District of New York, plus the House Democrats’ new power to now gain access to Donald J. Trump’s tax returns from the IRS, and the Power of Impeachment, things are speeding up toward the certain demise of President Trump. (Maybe the U.S. should establish a new ‘Independence Day‘!)

This will have a global effect for all of us, as every nation of the world has been sitting on the edge of its proverbial seat, waiting for Trump’s next Reality TV episode to begin.


And for the Rest of Us?

Uranus in Taurus can upset two major issues in our lives: our power and our values. These two things are interlinked. Uranus has a habit of tearing down old structures that no longer serve us, before it begins to inspire the new ones. Like Mars, it is a forward-moving stimulant, avoiding the obstacles of the Past. It inspires new ideas and processes, new visions, and will supply the equivalent of an electric shock if we are not getting on with our program!

Your personal power base could be affected if you are putting too much energy into something that is not your genuine path. And your values could be shaken to the core. 

But a word of caution: don’t take on the projections of others who have become angry about the situation they now find themselves in. I’ve seen this several times already, close to the day of the Uranus shift.

  • If they have a genuine gripe with you, fine. It’s out in the open. Maintain your Equanimity and work with them to resolve it.
  • But if you’ve suffered the outbursts of others through unreasonable or imagined causes, don’t take it to Heart, and maintain your Compassion and Equanimity, which may actually be the entire purpose of the interchange! 

Anything can happen with Uranus! But I think many power bases in global politics may begin to shift severely while Uranus begins its renovation projects. And money systems over the next seven years could also fluctuate wildly. 

Hang in there for the ride! Uranus can be an exhilarating thrill! … Or not …

PS: March 19 2019
A NOTE following the horrendous terrorist attack on the Muslim community in two mosques in Christchurch, NZ, on Friday March 15. Not only was the perpetrator said to be 28 years old, which is often the Saturn Return for many people (normally at age 28 to 29), leading to big karmic influences and consequences, but Uranus had only recently moved into Taurus (the shocking side of power issues, as explained above), and Uranus was also aspecting Vulcanus (Transneptunian Point) by square. If you have had personal astrology sessions with me, you may understand the significance of this combination: Uranus and Vulcanus together can certainly shock us out of our complacency! But our fears and terrors must always lead us to compassion, the final solution. This is the initiation we face.
May those Muslims, who have died so suddenly in these violent attacks, find peace with Allah.

There was one very new book that I neglected to add to the current edition of my Resources for Business booklet for you. That was Seth Godin‘s latest publication (Nov 2018), This Is Marketing: You Can’t Be Seen Until You Learn to See (paper, digital, and audio with Seth narrating).

So as an apology for my omission, I’ve added this brilliant video, above, to this Resource newsletter blog rather than my usual public Exceptional Purpose VideoBlog

This is a deep and important interview where Chase Jarvis of CreativeLive has Seth Godin unpack his latest book on (authentic) Marketing for us, to explain some points a little further.

It’s a lengthy interview at 1:10:56, and you may want to ‘rewind’ a few pieces—so make yourself a cuppa, grab a healthy snack, and have your notebook and pen handy. Seth is always well worth your time! 

The interviewer, Chase Jarvis, is well known as a visionary photographer, fine artist and entrepreneur. He is cited as one of the most influential photographers of the past decade, and in 2018 co-created Photo Lab: Crafting Your Shot with Apple, to teach photography skills at more than 500 Apple stores, globally.

May you always live your Exceptional Purpose!

Excerpt: You Will Reincarnate

Excerpt: You Will Reincarnate

Book Cover "You Will Reincarnate" by Kerrie Redgate

Post updated March 9 2023

I’m currently semi-retired from my astrology work, so that I can finish writing and indie-publish several books from my Astrology & Mind series all at once in 2023-4, so they can be read conveniently one after the other, and also offered as a digital box set. More books in box sets are also presently in the works and will be published a little while after these, as I’ve been writing them all concurrently over the years.

aThere is also be another book on reincarnation that I’ve been writing more recently, and I’m planning to publish that first, in late  2023 or early 2024: In 5,000 Years: A Novel Truth. That book will be a good primer for You Will Reincarnate, and will be the first in my Reincarnation History Series

As more of an historical spiritual memoir, In 5,000 Years elaborates on the interconnected stories from the actual results we achieved from researching the complex threads of my own past histories. (More on that and my other imminent books on my Author site

In 5,000 Years: A Novel Truth by Kerrie Redgate

So, I’m giving you a little taste, here, of the first book in my Astrology & Mind series, You Will Reincarnate: New Research into the Quirks of Consciousness with Ancient & Current Sciences. The ebook version will be initially free for a time on all the major digital platforms (so please subscribe to my newsletter via the link in the menu, for alerts as soon as my books and courses are available); and the paper and audio versions (I’ll be narrating) will be priced.

You Will Reincarnate describes the process of reincarnation and its implications for our development, as well as the research processes and findings from decades of my own clinical work with students, clients, and of course myself, with the help of other professionals such as kinesiologists and excellent spiritual mediums. Astrology has been a central tool in both validating and expanding on the results from these other sources — asteroids never lie! … More on that in another book!

I hope you enjoy this little excerpt, which is the full Preface of You Will Reincarnate


from Kerrie Redgate’s forthcoming book: 
You Will Reincarnate: New Research into the Quirks of Consciousness with Ancient & Current Sciences

The Catholic Nun was covered in black, from toe to crown, with an oval face piercing through a starched white frame. Only her long-fingered white hands revealed the life within the blackness. She was a force. Dark, foreboding, all the clichés. The beads of her long rosary rattled as loudly as the tapping of her boots on the polished linoleum floor while she paced along the hallway toward our classroom.

It was 1962, and within the Catholic school system of those days, the nuns were designed to be overbearing figures of Authority.

I always sat straight and still in those classes. Not so much for The Nun, but from an inner sense of dignity and self-discipline, as though I had to prove myself to myself, before I could gain anyone’s respect. I also had a strong sense of justice, often arguing passionately with my parents about “human rights” (especially at bed-time when I wanted to linger late with the adults). I demanded to be treated as an equal.

However, I had not questioned the religious instruction we were given at school, until a particular day when the topic of The Nun’s teaching was Death. Actually, it was what happens after death. We sat through an entire exposé of the Heaven and Hell realms; and in those days, Purgatory, the half-way house, was also on the cards.

I recall being stunned in disbelief. What I was hearing from this darkly-clad image of stern responsibility was clearly a lie, an untruth, a deception!

Or so I was thinking.

I was too young to have known that religious belief is a matter of choice, and that there are many religions, philosophies, and beliefs, that can inspire any one of us — or conversely entrap us within the Realm of Intolerance and Self-Importance.

Well, perhaps I was a little involved in the Realm of Intolerance at that point, because I never trusted any of the Catholic nuns from that day onwards. In my heart, in that moment, I renounced my Catholic-ness, though I never lost a connection to what I would later term ‘Spirit’.

Perhaps I could be forgiven for such a rash, yet resolute, decision — I was only seven years old.

So, what was it that turned my young mind so against the very teacher I was supposed to revere as a role model and Bestower of Knowledge?

Astoundingly, it was memory. Clear as day. Vivid as your own memory of yesterday. As I listened to the dissertation on the Eternal Afterlife, my mind struggled with the memory of a time before I was born: my last lifetime as a young man in India, a medical doctor, trying to heal horrendously diseased children. In 1962, I was too young to know the word ‘reincarnation’, but I knew for certain that we come back after our body has died.

My earliest memory of my current life takes me back to age four, or thereabouts, as I was able to speak well enough to express my thoughts. I was in a very large living-room (of course, it seemed large, as I was very small), enclosed by walls of adults holding drinks, smoking tobacco, and chatting noisily. They were skyscrapers in an oppressive city to me. I clearly remember looking upwards, grabbing a man’s trouser leg, giving it a couple of tugs to get his attention, and sternly announcing, “There-are-children-in-India-who-are-dying-and-starving-and-we-have-to-help-them!”.

Needless to say, my squeaky little voice had very little impact. So I tried some skirts as well… All that frivolity surrounding me when there was so much suffering in the world. I was incredulous.

Television was a new invention in the 1950s, and we did not have one in our house during my very early years. No one in my sphere of influence ever spoke of India or its starving children. My family knew no Indian people personally, as at that time Australia was still upholding a racist “White Australia Policy”, being years before an industrial-economic necessity would instigate an alternative multi-racial immigration scheme.

And yet, as a little four-year-old girl, I was stirred by a strong compassion for something that had been happening in another part of the world, on an entirely different landmass within a culture I could not have imagined.

There were many more years of religious indoctrination for me, but I never relented in my secret belief. And over the years I cemented a vow deeply into my psyche that I would one day prove the truth of rebirth; that I would educate people to know what really does lie ahead after we die; and most importantly, why we choose to come back! This book is the fulfilment of that vow.
