John Hogue Offers His Guidance for the Future

John Hogue explains just where we are astrologically right now and where we're going in the next few months. This unique look into the future can help you understand our situation as it is now and what might be happening between now and the end of the year. Will there be any great natural disasters? Any black swans--or, for that matter, white swans--that we should expect in coming months? There is nobody quite like John Hogue to speculate usefully on these matters. His understanding of the methods of Nostradamus as well as his deep astrological insight, are unique in the world.

All of the dire 2012 prophesies out there bring to mind the question posed by Alan Watts: "Is life serious?" Orthodox Christians tell us that life is very serious because if you don't believe Jesus died for your sins and don't do x, y, or z, you're going to burn in hell for all eternity. The mystical and perennial philosophy traditions essentially tell us that life is not "serious" because we're all going to make it, we're all parts of god masquerading as separate selves, and after numerous lives, we will all return to the godhead. The master of the key (tmok) conveys a "theosophy" somewhere between these two positions. On the one hand, according to tmok, we have numerous incarnations, but humanity is coming to a closure point within this century where we will "make it or not make it." Tmok seems to suggest that not all humans are going to make it, some of us are simply going to be re-assimilated into some form of undifferentiated consciousness or energy. Others are going to "make it" and ascend to a higher level of consciousness. "No child left behind" seems to be ruled out by tmok which would make his view of life somewhat "serious." Your thoughts?

Not all traditions support reincarnation. The Sufis, for example, are aligned with traditional Islam in rejecting it. During Scientology processing it is common for people to recover memories of "past lives", but it was never clear to me that these lives must have been your own simply because you remember them. However, this is an excellent point - if this is our only chance, we must take it seriously. From the Sufi point of view, it is all about removing material that obscures our essential nature from us. According to the "Greatest Master" Shaykh Ibn al-Arabi, our situation here is one of "work, trial (testing), and responsibility". We are veiled from the Truth by our corporate existence, but the refinement we achieve in life is realized in our continued existence after death.
