The Secret Intelligence of Trees may not be so concealed after we are done with Uranus in Taurus next decade. Shortly after Uranus got into Taurus, I had a strange vision during acupuncture. I was not asleep, but I was elsewhere, in an ancient feeling forest with vast trees. I felt their presence and gravity. Trees are magic, old magic, a deep earth spell
. This epic email made me remember that experience.
Two nights ago, I fell asleep listening to your Uranus in Taurus mp3, and I dreamt I was at a seminar with thousands of people. There was so much interest in the topic we had to be housed in a spillover tent.
After the lecture, the speaker moved around the audience, pausing with each person to consult an old book. It was finally my turn, and I looked into the parchment, and I saw my name written, along with specific memories and information.
The lecturer told me that trees knew when souls were preparing to be born. They would convene and decide which tree family would watch over each new soul. Every tree of the species shared the responsibility, and they communicated across country, nation, and continents.
The Secret Intelligence Of Trees Is That They’re Magic
They would watch over their child, giving it shelter, support, delight, and solace.
Everyone at the seminar had apparently woken to this information, and we were receiving specific instructions.
The dream moved me so profoundly that I made a mockup of the book and included all the information I could remember.
My trees are the Liquid Amber. And my instruction was to meditate on the leaves in their autumnal cycle. Love your work Mystic. You are a daily inspiration, and I couldn’t navigate this crazy terrain without you.
Up until this dream I quite liked trees but did not really think about them too much. Now, all that has changed.
Many thanks and love,

Under Tree Contemplation Is Very Uranus In Taurus
Dear Taurus Tree Hugger,
I love that you made this into a book. Your dream also makes me think of the old Pagan worship of trees. Fig trees were said to have roots that reached into the underworld, which is why meditating at the foot of one could elicit particularly powerful realizations. The Greeks and Romans had their tree nymphs and dyads, with every tree having its magical spirit.
In fact, in Gnostic Astrology, they say each planet has its ‘genie’ or ‘genius.’ Rather than arguing over how planets could move our personal ‘tides’ in the same way the Moon moves the oceans, we could be cultivating a better relationship with them. That, of course, is magic. And understanding the extensive correspondences between creatures, plants, winds, stars, earth, trees, and us is the task of lifetimes.
Beneath the radio-frequencies and geopolitical noise of Saturn-Pluto 2020, more people are turning onto the secret intelligence of trees. And, to those who say it is irrational that every tree has a spirit, how is it flakier than the concept of a male deity with a beard who banishes sinners to an underworld tricked up to be like an inquisition torture chamber of the medieval era? And run by a bizarrely remixed version of the Nature God Pan? Or, even more simply, if there is no goddess, how is it a religion?
