SOS - URGENT APPEAL FOR PRAYERS FOR SYRIA
The Spirit of Sophia requests all light workers to focus their prayers and meditations
to help bring energies of love and peace to Syria and the Middle East.
We pray to the Divine Goddess Sophia that she will help us to create a dome of protection
over all the peoples of and in Syria - from whichever nations or groups they originate.
We pray that peace will prevail and that the forces of Light, Love and Truth will prevail over
the gathering forces of darkness and war and we pray that these will be banished from this
Please join our prayers and meditations for peace this weekend, 14th and 15th April 2018.
New Year 2018
Wishing all our friends a Happy New Year.
We trust that Spirit of Sophia's work will continue this year,
as in previous years, endeavoring to bring Light and Peace to Humanity.
This Easter we remember in our prayers all those killed
and injured in conflicts. We pray for those who grieve and suffer.
Holy Mary, Mother of God,
Wrap your loving and protective arms around the world
Bring under your mantle of protection
the poor, the sick and those without homes
the powerless and dispossed.
Unite us under your wisdom and peace
May love and understanding prevail on Earth.
Defeating the Archons within is the only way to defeat them in the world without.
From this task, no-one is exempt.
We ask the Holy Mother for her Blessings this Christmas.
May the Love and Mercy of God be with us all as we head into the New Year.
Spirit of Sophia wishes everyone a Happy and Peaceful 2017.
Please join with us in prayer.
Our thoughts go out to all people across the world who have lost their lives and those or their loved
ones to war and terror.
Ancient Christian and Gnostic religions, Zoroastrianism and Manicheans - the historical forerunners to
Christianity and Modern Islam, talked of wars in the heavens between the light and the darkness,
and on earth between good and evil.
But every people, every creed, every group and nation consists mainly of people who are both good and
bad - to varying extents. There are no perfect human beings on the earth, but many wish to see the
world become more balanced towards the good, with happy and positive peoples living in peace.
Our Holy Mother creator, who has been known variously as Holy Mary, Sophia, Fatima and Isis must
wonder whether her children will ever learn to stop fighting and share the planet peacefully.
In all places where there is conflict - let us pray for lasting ceasefires, for safe humanitarian corridors
and for negotiations for lasting peace.
Negotiating new peace deals and development treaties around the world will be very hard and costly,
everyone will have to make concessions and compromises for lasting peace, but surely this effort
would be preferrable to the endless cycle of death and destruction that some of the world's people have
long had to suffer. Many are still living through the nightmare of daily war in their homelands.
There are alternatives, diplomacy with real deals to improve the lives of poor and oppressed
peoples and a committment to building safer, fairer societies.

Some good news for a change.
The Pope visits the refugee camp in Lesbos. He chooses 12 refugees including young children
(it must have been very hard for him to choose) and they have returned with him to the Vatican
where they will be looked after and resettled.

It matters little which religious group were the intended targets of this attack or of the attacks in Belgium or in Yemen this week.
It matters little which group - in the name of whatever religion or political cause, thought it necessitates and justifies the slaughter of innocents.
All perpetrators of violence against unarmed civilians, whether by terrorist suicide bombs or Nato or any other countries' bombs, it's all wrong!
All violence adds to and increases the availability of negative and evil Archon energies and potentially affects others, raising more blood-lust and the desire for revenge.
We must all negotiate to bring about a global ceasefire. That means Nato and the UN and Isl and all groups involved have to come to the negotiating table to iron out a lasting and realistic ceasefire deal.
We must increase freedom and democracy across all developing countries by settling civil wars, gaining ceasefires and bringing prolonged peace. Bringing an end to civil wars by democratic means must become the top priority of the international community.
We must also focus our attention on the causes of the greivances of those who take up Jihad against us and those of the victims of Jihad. We must address the urgent needs of the disadvantaged, disposesed and migrant peoples flooding to our shores for help.
To live in peace - we first have to create peace.
Please take the Spirit of Sophia Pathworking to help bring the protection of the Goddess to all peoples of the world, and in your prayers and visualisations construct astral domes of protection over all the cities of the world, (see entry from 19th December below)
At this time this is particularly needed in Europe and the Middle East but astrally protecting your own patch is also important at this time.
Thank you and Love and Light SOS.

MESSAGE OF HIS HOLINESS
FOR THE CELEBRATION OF THE
XLIX WORLD DAY OF PEACE
1 JANUARY 2016
Overcome Indifference and Win Peace
1. God is not indifferent! God cares about mankind! God does not abandon us! At the beginning of the New Year, I would like to share not only this profound conviction but also my cordial good wishes for prosperity, peace and the fulfilment of the hopes of every man and every woman, every family, people and nation throughout the world, including all Heads of State and Government and all religious leaders. We continue to trust that 2016 will see us all firmly and confidently engaged, on different levels, in the pursuit of justice and peace. Peace is both God’s gift and a human achievement. As a gift of God, it is entrusted to all men and women, who are called to attain it.
Maintaining our reasons for hope
2. Sadly, war and terrorism, accompanied by kidnapping, ethnic or religious persecution and the misuse of power, marked the past year from start to finish. In many parts of the world, these have became so common as to constitute a real “third world war fought piecemeal”. Yet some events of the year now ending inspire me, in looking ahead to the new year, to encourage everyone not to lose hope in our human ability to conquer evil and to combat resignation and indifference. They demonstrate our capacity to show solidarity and to rise above self-interest, apathy and indifference in the face of critical situations.
Here I would mention the efforts to bring world leaders together at COP21 in the search for new ways to confront climate change and to protect the earth, our common home. We can also think of two earlier global events: the Addis Ababa Summit for funding sustainable development worldwide and the adoption of the United Nations 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, aimed at ensuring a more dignified standard of living for all the world’s peoples, especially the poor, by that year.
For the Church, 2015 was a special year, since it marked the fiftieth anniversary of two documents of the Second Vatican Council which eloquently expressed her sense of solidarity with the world. Pope John XXIII, at the beginning of the Council, wanted to open wide the windows of the Church and to improve her communication with the world. The two documents, Nostra Aetate and Gaudium et Spes, are emblematic of the new relationship of dialogue, solidarity and accompaniment which the Church sought to awaken within the human family. In the Declaration Nostra Aetate, the Church expressed her openness to dialogue with non-Christian religions. In the Pastoral Constitution Gaudium et Spes, based on a recognition that “the joys and hopes, the grief and anguish of the people of our time, especially of those who are poor or afflicted, are the joys and hopes, the grief and anguish of the followers of Christ as well”, the Church proposed to enter into dialogue with the entire human family about the problems of our world, as a sign of solidarity, respect and affection.
Along these same lines, with the present Jubilee of Mercy I want to invite the Church to pray and work so that every Christian will have a humble and compassionate heart, one capable of proclaiming and witnessing to mercy. It is my hope that all of us will learn to “forgive and give”, to become more open “to those living on the outermost fringes of society - fringes which modern society itself creates”, and to refuse to fall into “a humiliating indifference or a monotonous routine which prevents us from discovering what is new! Let us ward off destructive cynicism!”
There are many good reasons to believe in mankind’s capacity to act together in solidarity and, on the basis of our interconnection and interdependence, to demonstrate concern for the more vulnerable of our brothers and sisters and for the protection of the common good. This attitude of mutual responsibility is rooted in our fundamental vocation to fraternity and a life in common. Personal dignity and interpersonal relationships are what constitute us as human beings whom God willed to create in his own image and likeness. As creatures endowed with inalienable dignity, we are related to all our brothers and sisters, for whom we are responsible and with whom we act in solidarity. Lacking this relationship, we would be less human. We see, then, how indifference represents a menace to the human family. As we approach a new year, I would ask everyone to take stock of this reality, in order to overcome indifference and to win peace.
Kinds of indifference
3. Clearly, indifference is not something new; every period of history has known people who close their hearts to the needs of others, who close their eyes to what is happening around them, who turn aside to avoid encountering other people's problems. But in our day, indifference has ceased to be a purely personal matter and has taken on broader dimensions, producing a certain “globalization of indifference”.
The first kind of indifference in human society is indifference to God, which then leads to indifference to one’s neighbour and to the environment. This is one of the grave consequences of a false humanism and practical materialism allied to relativism and nihilism. We have come to to think that we are the source and creator of ourselves, our lives and society. We feel self-sufficient, prepared not only to find a substitute for God but to do completely without him. As a consequence, we feel that we owe nothing to anyone but ourselves, and we claim only rights. Against this erroneous understanding of the person, Pope Benedict XVI observed that neither man himself nor human development can, on their own, answer the question of our ultimate meaning. Paul VI likewise stated that “there is no true humanism but that which is open to the Absolute, and is conscious of a vocation which gives human life its authentic significance”.
Indifference to our neighbour shows itself in different ways. Some people are well-informed; they listen to the radio, read the newspapers or watch television, but they do so mechanically and without engagement. They are vaguely aware of the tragedies afflicting humanity, but they have no sense of involvement or compassion. Theirs is the attitude of those who know, but keep their gaze, their thoughts and their actions focused on themselves. Sadly, it must be said that today’s information explosion does not of itself lead to an increased concern for other people’s problems, which demands openness and a sense of solidarity. Indeed, the information glut can numb people’s sensibilities and to some degree downplay the gravity of the problems. There are those who “simply content themselves with blaming the poor and the poor countries themselves for their troubles; indulging in unwarranted generalizations, they claim that the solution is an ‘education’ that would tranquilize them, making them tame and harmless. All this becomes even more exasperating for the marginalized in the light of the widespread and deeply rooted corruption found in many countries – in their governments, businesses and institutions – whatever the political ideology of their leaders.”
In other cases, indifference shows itself in lack of concern for what is happening around us, especially if it does not touch us directly. Some people prefer not to ask questions or seek answers; they lead lives of comfort, deaf to the cry of those who suffer. Almost imperceptibly, we grow incapable of feeling compassion for others and for their problems; we have no interest in caring for them, as if their troubles were their own responsibility, and none of our business. “When we are healthy and comfortable, we forget about others (something God the Father never does): we are unconcerned with their problems, their sufferings and the injustices they endure… Our heart grows cold. As long as I am relatively healthy and comfortable, I don’t think about those less well off.”
Because we dwell in a common home, we cannot help but ask ourselves about the state of its health, as I sought to do in Laudato Si’. Water and air pollution, the indiscriminate exploitation of forests and the destruction of the natural environment are often the result of man’s indifference to man, since everything is interrelated. Then too, there is the way we treat animals, which has an effect on the way we treat other people, and the cases where people freely do elsewhere what they would never dare do at home.
In these and in other situations, indifference leads to self-absorption and a lack of commitment. It thus contributes to the absence of peace with God, with our neighbour and with the environment.
Peace threatened by globalized indifference
4. Indifference towards God transcends the purely private sphere of the individual and affects the public and social sphere. As Benedict XVI pointed out, “the glorification of God and human peace on earth are closely linked”. Indeed, “without openness to the transcendent, human beings easily become prey to relativism and find it difficult to act justly and to work for peace. Disregard and the denial of God, which lead man to acknowledge no norm above himself and himself alone, have produced untold cruelty and violence.
On both the individual and communitarian levels, indifference to one’s neighbour, born of indifference to God, finds expression in disinterest and a lack of engagement, which only help to prolong situations of injustice and grave social imbalance. These in turn can lead to conflicts or, in any event, generate a climate of dissatisfaction which risks exploding sooner or later into acts of violence and insecurity.
Indifference and lack of commitment constitute a grave dereliction of the duty whereby each of us must work in accordance with our abilities and our role in society for the promotion of the common good, and in particular for peace, which is one of mankind’s most precious goods.
On the institutional level, indifference to others and to their dignity, their fundamental rights and their freedom, when it is part of a culture shaped by the pursuit of profit and hedonism, can foster and even justify actions and policies which ultimately represent threats to peace. Indifference can even lead to justifying deplorable economic policies which breed injustice, division and violence for the sake of ensuring the wellbeing of individuals or nations. Not infrequently, economic and political projects aim at securing or maintaining power and wealth, even at the cost of trampling on the basic rights and needs of others. When people witness the denial of their elementary rights, such as the right to food, water, health care or employment, they are tempted to obtain them by force.
Moreover, indifference to the natural environment, by countenancing deforestation, pollution and natural catastrophes which uproot entire communities from their ecosystem and create profound insecurity, ends up creating new forms of poverty and new situations of injustice, often with dire consequences for security and peace. How many wars have been fought, and how many will continue to be fought, over a shortage of goods or out of an insatiable thirst for natural resources?
From indifference to mercy: the conversion of hearts
5. One year ago, in my Message for the 2015 World Day of Peace, with the motto “No Longer Slaves, but Brothers and Sisters”, I evoked the first biblical icon of human brotherhood, that of Cain and Abel (cf. Gen 4:1-16). I meant to draw attract attention to how from the very beginning this original brotherhood was betrayed. Cain and Abel were brothers. Both came forth from the same womb, they were equal in dignity and created in the image and likeness of God; but their relationship as brothers was destroyed. “It was not only that Cain could not stand Abel; he killed him out of envy.” Fratricide was the form of betrayal, and Cain’s refusal to acknowledge Abel as his brother became the first rupture in the family relations of fraternity, solidarity and mutual respect.
God then intervened to remind man of his responsibility towards his fellows, as he had also done when Adam and Eve, our first parents, ruptured their relationship with him, their Creator. “Then the Lord said to Cain: “Where is Abel your brother?” He said, “I do not know; am I my brother’s keeper?” But the Lord replied: “What you have you done? The voice of your brother’s blood is crying to me from the ground” (Gen 4:9-10).
Cain said he did not know what had happened to his brother, that he was not his brother’s keeper. He did not feel responsible for his life, for his fate. He did not feel involved. He was indifferent to his brother, despite their common origin. How sad! What a sorry tale of brothers, of families, of human beings! This was the first display of indifference between brothers. God, however, is not indifferent. Abel’s blood had immense value in his eyes, and he asked Cain to give an account of it. At the origin of the human race, God shows himself to be involved in man’s destiny. Later, when the children of Israel were slaves in Egypt, God once more intervened to tell Moses: “I have seen the affliction of my people who are in Egypt, and have heard their cry because of their taskmasters; I know their sufferings, and I have come down to deliver them out of the hand of the Egyptians, and to bring them up out of that land to a good and broad land, a land flowing with milk and honey” (Ex 3:7-8). We should note the verbs which describe God’s intervention: he sees, hears, knows, comes down and delivers. God does not remain indifferent. He is attentive and he acts.
In the same way, in Jesus his Son, God has come down among us. He took flesh and showed his solidarity with humanity in all things but sin. Jesus identified with us: he became “the first-born among many brethren” (Rom 8:29). He was not content merely to teach the crowds, but he was concerned for their welfare, especially when he saw them hungry (cf. Mk 6:34-44) or without work (cf. Mt 20:3). He was concerned not only for men and women, but also for the fish of the sea, the birds of the air, plants and trees, all things great and small. He saw and embraced all of creation. But he did more than just see; he touched people’s lives, he spoke to them, helped them and showed kindness to those in need. Not only this, but he felt strong emotions and he wept (cf. Jn 11:33-44). And he worked to put an end to suffering, sorrow, misery and death.
Jesus taught us to be merciful like our heavenly Father (cf. Lk 6:36). In the parable of the Good Samaritan (cf. Lk 10:29-37), he condemned those who fail to help others in need, those who “pass by on the other side” (cf. Lk 10:31-32). By this example, he taught his listeners, and his disciples in particular, to stop and to help alleviate the sufferings of this world and the pain of our brothers and sisters, using whatever means are at hand, beginning with our own time, however busy we may be. Indifference often seeks excuses: observing ritual prescriptions, looking to all the things needing to be done, hiding behind hostilities and prejudices which keep us apart.
Mercy is the heart of God. It must also be the heart of the members of the one great family of his children: a heart which beats all the more strongly wherever human dignity – as a reflection of the face of God in his creatures – is in play. Jesus tells us that love for others – foreigners, the sick, prisoners, the homeless, even our enemies – is the yardstick by which God will judge our actions. Our eternal destiny depends on this. It is not surprising that the Apostle Paul tells the Christians of Rome to rejoice with those who rejoice and to weep with those who weep (cf. Rom 12:15), or that he encourages the Corinthians to take up collections as a sign of solidarity with the suffering members of the Church (cf. 1 Cor 16:2-3). And Saint John writes: “If any one has the world’s goods and sees his brother or sister in need, yet refuses help, how does God’s love abide in him? (1 Jn 3:17; cf. Jas 2:15-16).
This then is why “it is absolutely essential for the Church and for the credibility of her message that she herself live and testify to mercy. Her language and her gestures must transmit mercy, so as to touch the hearts of all people and inspire them once more to find the road that leads to the Father. The Church’s first truth is the love of Christ. The Church makes herself a servant of this love and mediates it to all people: a love that forgives and expresses itself in the gift of oneself. Consequently, wherever the Church is present, the mercy of the Father must be evident. In our parishes, communities, associations and movements, in a word, wherever there are Christians, everyone should find an oasis of mercy.”
We too, then, are called to make compassion, love, mercy and solidarity a true way of life, a rule of conduct in our relationships with one another. This requires the conversion of our hearts: the grace of God has to turn our hearts of stone into hearts of flesh (cf. Ezek 36:26), open to others in authentic solidarity. For solidarity is much more than a “feeling of vague compassion or shallow distress at the misfortunes of so many people, both near and far”. Solidarity is “a firm and persevering determination to commit oneself to the common good; that is to say to the good of all and of each individual, because we are all really responsible for all”, because compassion flows from fraternity.
Understood in this way, solidarity represents the moral and social attitude which best corresponds to an awareness of the scourges of our own day, and to the growing interdependence, especially in a globalized world, between the lives of given individuals and communities and those of other men and women in the rest of the world.
Building a culture of solidarity and mercy to overcome indifference
6. Solidarity, as a moral virtue and social attitude born of personal conversion, calls for commitment on the part of those responsible for education and formation.
I think first of families, which are called to a primary and vital mission of education. Families are the first place where the values of love and fraternity, togetherness and sharing, concern and care for others are lived out and handed on. They are also the privileged milieu for transmitting the faith, beginning with those first simple gestures of devotion which mothers teach their children.
Teachers, who have the challenging task of training children and youth in schools or other settings, should be conscious that their responsibility extends also to the moral, spiritual and social aspects of life. The values of freedom, mutual respect and solidarity can be handed on from a tender age. Speaking to educators, Pope Benedict XVI noted that: “Every educational setting can be a place of openness to the transcendent and to others; a place of dialogue, cohesiveness and attentive listening, where young people feel appreciated for their personal abilities and inner riches, and can learn to esteem their brothers and sisters. May young people be taught to savour the joy which comes from the daily exercise of charity and compassion towards others and from taking an active part in the building of a more humane and fraternal society”.
Communicators also have a responsibility for education and formation, especially nowadays, when the means of information and communication are so widespread. Their duty is first and foremost to serve the truth, and not particular interests. For the media “not only inform but also form the minds of their audiences, and so they can make a significant contribution to the education of young people. It is important never to forget that the connection between education and communication is extremely close: education takes place through communication, which influences, for better or worse, the formation of the person.”
Communicators should also be mindful that the way in which information is obtained and made public should always be legally and morally admissible.
Peace: the fruit of a culture of solidarity, mercy and compassion
7. While conscious of the threat posed by a globalization of indifference, we should also recognize that, in the scenario I have just described, there are also many positive initiatives which testify to the compassion, mercy and solidarity of which we are capable.
Here I would offer some examples of praiseworthy commitment, which demonstrate how all of us can overcome indifference in choosing not to close our eyes to our neighbour. These represent good practices on the way to a more humane society.
There are many non-governmental and charitable organizations, both within and outside the Church, whose members, amidst epidemics, disasters and armed conflicts, brave difficulties and dangers in caring for the injured and sick, and in burying the dead. I would also mention those individuals and associations which assist migrants who cross deserts and seas in search of a better life. These efforts are spiritual and corporal works of mercy on which we will be judged at the end of our lives.
I think also of the journalists and photographers who shape public opinion on difficult situations which trouble our consciences, and all those devoted to the defence of human rights, especially the rights of ethnic and religious minorities, indigenous peoples, women and children, and the most vulnerable of our brothers and sisters. Among them are also many priests and missionaries who, as good pastors, remain at the side of their flock and support them, heedless of danger and hardship, especially during armed conflicts.
How many families, amid occupational and social difficulties, make great sacrifices to provide their children with a “counter-cultural” education in the values of solidarity, compassion and fraternity! How many families open their hearts and homes to those in need, such as refugees and migrants! I wish to thank in a particular way all those individuals, families, parishes, religious communities, monasteries and shrines who readily responded to my appeal to welcome a refugee family.
Finally, I would mention those young people who join in undertaking works of solidarity, and all those who generously help their neighbours in need in their cities and countries and elsewhere in the world. I thank and encourage everyone engaged in such efforts, which often pass unobserved. Their hunger and thirst for justice will be satisfied, their mercy will lead them to find mercy and, as peacemakers, they will be called children of God (cf. Mt 5:6-9).
Peace in the sign of the Jubilee of Mercy
8. In the spirit of the Jubilee of Mercy, all of us are called to realize how indifference can manifest itself in our lives and to work concretely to improve the world around us, beginning with our families, neighbours and places of employment.
Civil society is likewise called to make specific and courageous gestures of concern for their most vulnerable members, such as prisoners, migrants, the unemployed and the infirm.
With regard to prisoners, it would appear that in many cases practical measures are urgently needed to improve their living conditions, with particular concern for those detained while awaiting trial. It must be kept in mind that penal sanctions have the aim of rehabilitation, while national laws should consider the possibility of other establishing penalties than incarceration. In this context, I would like once more to appeal to governmental authorities to abolish the death penalty where it is still in force, and to consider the possibility of an amnesty.
With regard to migrants, I would ask that legislation on migration be reviewed, so, while respecting reciprocal rights and responsibilities, it can reflect a readiness to welcome migrants and to facilitate their integration. Special concern should be paid to the conditions for legal residency, since having to live clandestinely can lead to criminal behaviour.
In this Jubilee Year, I would also appeal to national leaders for concrete gestures in favour of our brothers and sisters who suffer from the lack of labour, land and lodging. I am thinking of the creation of dignified jobs to combat the social plague of unemployment, which affects many families and young people, with grave effects for society as a whole. Unemployment takes a heavy toll on people’s sense of dignity and hope, and can only be partially compensated for by welfare benefits, however necessary these may be, provided to the unemployed and their families. Special attention needs to be given to women – who unfortunately still encounter discrimination in the workplace – and to some categories of workers whose conditions are precarious or dangerous, and whose pay is not commensurate to the importance of their social mission.
Finally, I express my hope that effective steps will be taken to improve the living conditions of the sick by ensuring that all have access to medical treatment and pharmaceuticals essential for life, as well as the possibility of home care.
Looking beyond their own borders, national leaders are also called to renew their relations with other peoples and to enable their real participation and inclusion in the life of the international community, in order to ensure fraternity within the family of nations as well.
With this in mind, I would like to make a threefold appeal to the leaders of nations: to refrain from drawing other peoples into conflicts or wars which destroy not only their material, cultural and social legacy, but also – and in the long term – their moral and spiritual integrity; to forgive or manage in a sustainable way the international debt of the poorer nations; and to adopt policies of cooperation which, instead of bowing before the dictatorship of certain ideologies, will respect the values of local populations and, in any case, not prove detrimental to the fundamental and inalienable right to life of the unborn.
I entrust these reflections, together with my best wishes for the New Year, to the intercession of the Blessed Virgin Mary, our Mother, who cares for the needs of our human family, that she may obtain from her Son Jesus, the Prince of Peace, the granting of our prayers and the blessing of our daily efforts for a fraternal and united world.

 “Until exclusion and inequality in society and between peoples are reversed, it will be impossible to eliminate violence. The poor and the poor peoples are accused of violence, yet without equal opportunities the different forms of aggression and conflict will find a fertile terrain for growth and eventually explode. When a society – whether local, national or global – is willing to leave a part of itself on the fringes, no political programmes or resources spent on law enforcement or surveillance systems can indefinitely guarantee tranquillity. This is not the case simply because inequality provokes a violent reaction from those excluded from the system, but because the socioeconomic system is unjust at its root. Just as goodness tends to spread, the toleration of evil, which is injustice, tends to expand its baneful influence and quietly to undermine any political and social system, no matter how solid it may appear” (Apostolic Exhortation Evangelii Gaudium, 59),

3rd December 2015
Recent world events and defeats should not dent our resolve to find peaceful and fair alternatives to world problems.
However there is a need to redouble our efforts, we must continue to work and pray for peace and to invoke within ourselves the forces of Love Wisdom and Light that the Holy Mother represents and spread these around the world.
For the next few weeks we are swimming against the current and who knows when the tide will turn in favour of peace. The lastest wave of Archon power erupted on the 30th of November with a transiting Mars and Lilith conjunction in Libra which was kicked into play by the transiting Moon on the 1st December.
And there are further Astrological Challenges to come.
On the 6th December the transiting Moon kicks off a transiting Mars in Libra square to Pluto in Capricorn.
On the 10th December transiting Mars in Libra Opposses transiting Uranus in Aries.
Early in the New Year, the 2nd and 3rd January see the transiting Moon in Libra triggering another longer term influence, that of transiting Lilith through Libra which is coming into a square with transiting Pluto in Capricorn on the 9th and 10th of January and then to transiting Uranus in Aries from the 22nd to the 26th January.
Libra is the sign of the Scales, representing peace, justice and balance and is ruled by planet of love, Venus (Ma'at in Egypt - also manifestations of the Goddess Sophia)
But Libra is dominated by the avenging Goddess Lilith (see also Artemis) and Mars (the God of War) squaring Pluto in Capricorn (Capricorn is the sign of rulers and Governments ruled by Saturn, Satan or Old rigid men and their dogmas) and in particular with Pluto here, representing both underground figures and anti-heros, as well as dictators and tyrants.
So it seems that this battle may also topple some tyrants by the time it is over, or perhaps all the tyrants will destroy each other - as is written in the Pistis Sophis. But whatever happens, this will be a very testing time for the world.
Please, if you can, do take the SOS Pathworking with us on some of these days.

Wars will not end...until
All people, but especially powerful elites, need to accept that the world will not become a better place by feeding an endless cycle of aggression by responding to violence with more violence.
Nor will the world change whilst dominant individuals
and groups among all races and cultures, seek hegemony and ideological and economic and political dominance and who aggressively pursue their own beliefs, values and interests over the rights and beliefs of others.
Unfortunately the violence is getting worse. Decisions made across the world by governments and terrorist groups alike impact upon all the worlds’ children and every new war creates hatred in yet another generation of young people thus fuelling the endless cycle.
We need alternatives.
Of course there is much anger evoked by deaths in Paris, Mali, Syria and Palestine and the almost countless atrocities that we have seen across the world these last few years - last few decades even. The forces of Light, the will to do good - for the betterment of all - competes with a selfish destructive and revengeful Archon energy which the Hawks on all sides seem powerless to resist.
The message from the Doves and the Spirit of Sophia is that the world CAN change.
Through questioning dominant narratives.
Researching and promoting peaceful alternatives.
Renegotiating international trust perhaps via an impartial International Justice League or a much strengthened UN.
But most of all, the world will only change as fast as each individual developes a genuine desire for lasting peace and prosperity for all of the world’s people and enact that belief in their daily lives.
One thing is certain, the world is ready for change, but the nature of that change and what is to come in the future is not predetermined by Armgeddon theories, it will depend upon the people of this world standing up to tyranny in all its forms, including from our own governing elites.
Wrest humanity from the grip of the Archons.
Please take the Spirit of Sophia pathworking and pray to the Holy Mother for peace.

A Prayer for Paris.
Almighty Goddess Sophia, Holy Mother, we call upon
you to extend your shield of protection around the world, we
call upon thee O Mother Goddess to protect all of the
earth's children from the evils and injustices of war
O Holy Mother, please make safe the passage of all
victims of violence and give your comfort love and strength
to all those who have had their loved ones so abruptly
and unjustly taken away.
Amighty Sophia, give us all strength courage and
direction, that we may continue to serve thy light, spread
thy wisdom and work your good deeds.
Help us O mother, to endure the onslaught of dark
and evil forces in the world and help us to ensure
that Love Peace and Light prevail.
Welcome to Spirit of Sophia 2015. The Bloodmoon/supermoon this month caused a fair amount of havoc with a transiting Mars in Leo square transiting Saturn in Scorpio followed by Venus square saturn. This co-incides with dark destructive and violent archonic developments around the world, same old, same old. But there is reason for hope. After much dithering old man Saturn has finally left the sign of the Scorpion and is moving rapidly through Sagittarius.
Pope Francis completed his visit to the United States and has given an address to the United Nations. This activist Pope has suggested the creation of an International Justice League to protect poorer countries from exploitation, debt and environmental destruction.
May Sophia inspire us to banish the dark and bring in the light.
With blessings for a saner, peaceful and fairer world.
