Neptune, Chaos and Creation

Hi Everyone! The name that came out of the hat was Elizabeth Lhuede! (Please email me your address and I'll get the signed books in the post to you!) Thank you everyone for your comments and support. My sister who made the trailer, Shawn Wilder, has enjoyed reading you all as well.

Happy new moon everyone! Namaste, Kim


To celebrate the creation of my newest book trailer, I’m giving away volumes 1 & 2 of the Quantum Encryption series: Path of the Stray and Road to the Soul. All you have to do is watch the clip and let me know your favourite image/scene. For me, it’s the lioness! What’s yours? Post in the comments and your name goes in the hat. Winner to be drawn on the new moon, February 21st.



Astro-Flash for the month: Neptune goes into Pisces for the first time since 1861! Neptune into Pisces is illusive, unconscious and ineffable. It represents a part of us that can never be defined. Neptune asks us to experience life without concrete boundaries, knowledge or proof. Sometimes Neptune can coincide with confusion . . . And confusion gets a lot of bad press, right? Aren’t we told to ‘get clear’, know our why, be aware of our unconscious motives, gremlins and tolerations?


Clarity is a great way to bring awareness into our lives but sometimes there is a better one: hanging out in ‘I don’t know.’ There is a beneficial role for confusion, chaos, and lack of clarity and that role is inspiration. ie Creation. Artistry. Love.


The eighth century BCE Greek poet Hesiod said before any of the original deities, there was chaos. Ultimate confusion! All our creation myths, in all places in all cultures in all times, begin with chaos, darkness, water. The unknown. “In truth at first Chaos came to be . . . Hesiod

There is a metaphor here! To create something truly new, first there must be chaos. We have to go back to scratch, forget what we think, and what we think we think, and immerse in the unknown.


Jeannette Maw puts it like this: Sometimes reality is a handicap to vibrational alignment because what’s happening in our “real world” is very different from what we want to create.

Neptune is all things unworldly, without form, ideas that cannot be proven. In esoteric terms we say it represents what is behind the veil. This energy, this part of us, wants Bliss. Reunion with the divine. Merging with source.


Higher and lower Neptune - My friend Mystic Medusa talks about higher and lower Neptune, lower being escapism, addictions, fears, and phobias because we want something so far beyond the rational, mundane experience of life, something so rarefied and beautiful that we reach for anything that can ‘drown’ us. At its core is ‘escape.’ Higher Neptune energy is more the expression of bliss, love and communion with all life. An experience of the divine while in a physical body. At its core is transcendence.


Neptune is bliss/confusion that doesn’t really function in the world of form because this energy is only interested in formless states of infinite possibility. Think of Deepak Chopra’s Discontinuity (the space or gap between our thoughts). That’s Neptune. By the time you get the message of Neptune, he’s already ‘gone’ because the getting is the realm of Saturn (the edifice of the ego). Neptune is outside that.


Neptune denies evidence. Neptune defies logic. Neptune simply believes - Joanne Wickenburg. This energy wants to dissolve overly rigid structures so that you can receive inspiration, communion, source energy. It is from a place of ‘uncertainty’ and allowing that creative originates!

Neptune into Pisces is a home coming for this planet. The sea god returns to his rightful realm. There is power there, and relief! Honour this transition. Allow yourself to get swept up into the bliss of the unknown. Welcome this ingress into Pisces like a Muse, a divine lover, the part of us that takes things on faith. Neptune says stop thinking and dance!


Another word for Neptune – Namaste!

That trailer is totes awesome, Kim!

So you're asking about our fav image/scene... hmmm....
I can poin-point it down to 3... (in no particular order... yet)

1. at 0:03-0:04 - The Warrior Thingie with the katanas (looks a bit like that character from the computer game Tekken... - Yoshimitsu...)

2. at 0:25-0:26 - The snake (anaconda) in the tunnel (creepy)

3. at 0:41-0:43 - The Eye


The best for me though is the music... way cool!


having re-watched the trailer several times now I have decided... - my fav scene/image is... The Snake in the tunnel (0:25 - 0:26)

I have to agree with the lioness - I like lions in general.

Indigo said...

I would have to say all the animals. The insight into the wolf, raven, lion, and snake. Animals to me represent the spiritual level of any world. (Hugs)Indigo

Rachel said...

Very nice trailer! I think my favorite image was the beginning with tree and the clouds over head, It made me feel like the sky was burning and set the tone for the books nicely. I am definitely very interested in the story now :)

Roger said...

The scene with the single horse or was that a unicorn. Really like the Cliff Nielsen & Aaron Briggs covers.

Reilly McCarron said...

It's between the gorgeous green forest, the wolf, and the horse standing alone and shaking out it's tale... I have to go with the wolf - such a mysterious and powerful symbol! Great trailer.

Belinda said...

The whole clip was really great and it sums the series up beautifully. I thought the shot of the crow (raven)was awesome - captures the spirit of the books.

Helen Lowe said...

Kim, I love the trailer--it's fabulous! And my favourite image was the 'witch'--very First Slayer in Buffy, which I totally like. And I feel it really captures the sense of your books. :)

I'm loving all your comments and feedback! Thank you! xxx

Barbara Tzoannou said...

fantasticalicious! very enchanting :-) i love the symbolism behind each picture! especially the unicorn one of hope and a powerful message that the heart will find a way !the music is also very intense! xxxx

Virginia Pasternak said...

My favorite scene was the neurons to galaxy transition. I love patterns that repeat throughout nature, and the echoes of meaning. thrilling trailer!

Elizabeth Lhuede said...

Great trailer! Excellent sense of drama created by the music, the choice of images and the editing.

As for a favourite section, I love the cyborgian witch and agree the images of the animals are intriguing. But I think I'll go with the stills toward the end which probably depict traces of exploded atoms from a particle accelerator but which also look like pen drawings of seashells. The beauty and ambiguity of those images summon for me the mysterious and powerful connection between science and nature which the trailer hints underlies the story.

LOA Savvy said...

My fav is the warrior at sunrise (sunset?) - he's so lithe and awesome!

suzi said...

I really like the opening scene but I choose for you here ... the powerful witch and the magical earth :) Love those horses. X

Neil said...

Love the Powerful Witch - the imagery is warrior like throughout the trailer, truly epic. Uranus in Aries, Pluto in Cap and Neptune in Pisces - all covered in this trailer. Awesome!

SnowLion said...

Ordinarily I would be most drawn to the lioness as well, but for some reason I keep returning to the warrior/witch. Very powerful and visually arresting image. I'm looking forward to reading your books.

Ann Clancy said...

Great music and images. (the witch image was my favorite and really pulled me in)
It both held my attention and also made me curious about your books.
Great job!

Anna Diehl said...

Fond of the horses running free... and there's something about the Amazon-esque woman that drew me back for a couple more views.

Go Kim!

Anonymous said...

Belinda Jayne says - The door opening. a parralell universe perhaps. and the tribal dance at the start

Cate said...

So exciting, Kim! Who did your music? Please message me or tell us when you get a chance. In general I liked the juxtaposition of the futuristic/science images with the images of nature. The contrast created a sort of tension that catches attention.

Shockwave Sound, an online royalty free site where you can buy soundtracks straight up. I love it too.

All the responses are wonderful. Now to put everyone in the hat!!! Standby for the draw!

I'm a winner!! That's wonderful, thanks, Kim. I'm really looking forward to reading your books. What a talented family you have. Please pass on my congratulations to Shawn for a fantastic trailer.
