Summertime

Get past the talking, (no matter how much soul you expose, people are deaf and blind)
Long music break, even with bass,

We still take it home after that.

Happy Summer!

New Moon 21* Capricorn Jan 11,2013


The New Moon in Capricorn at 21* on January 11, 2013 3:43PM EST.

 

The Sun and Moon have traveled past the conjunction with Pluto in Capricorn at 10* and  now lead the pack followed closely by Mercury at 17*, Pluto at 10* and Venus at 3*, so we see they are all keeping company in the sign of Capricorn, ruled by Saturn, Lord of the Rings and infusing the solar being, center of our universe, the feminine emotional moon in their marriage to ignite the transformative nature of Pluto along with Mercury (co-ruler of Virgo, see post on New Year); http://arcoftheancients.blogspot.com/2013/01/new-year-2013-astrological-currents.html

Along with Venus (love and partnership matters).  We infuse Plutonian energy into Capricorn in this new marriage for a commitment to transform the mountains we have in front of us.  With Jupiter still retrograde in Gemini until January 30, at 6* of Gemini, (Finally!) finances may seem to be stuck in molasses. 

This is to get us to route out our excesses.  Especially in the United States, we live in a perpetual state of excess, and most are completely unaware of the extent of this abuse, but the mother, Gaia does feel it all.

This can add a lot of fat to relationships (Venus) that obscures the reality and the integrity of just what two people are sharing, the value becomes altered with our many levels of addictions, which can be what most people think of as addictions, I.E. drugs, alcohol, tobacco, but what of the other addictions?  Gadget addictions, like computers, games or texting, or food addictions like binging or simply running to the kitchen to find something to satisfy our oral fixations?  Perhaps it is something like excessive exercising, television or even hiding in a book.  Maybe it is an outdoor hobby like riding ATV’s or even gambling? Any of these can serve as an alternative to relating with someone.

What do we really need in a relationship, what is in balance and what is in excess?  For some this can even be sexual addictions they are facing up to now.

The other aspect of this is simply coming to terms with the way it is, that whatever the patterns and habits you share together or have grown accustomed to in your lives, is as good as it gets and that is enough, it is the top of the mountain for you both but you are together. 

None the less, this new moon will ask us these questions.

Pluto does not like excess, especially not this phase coming from its conjunction with Uranus in Virgo as explained in the last post.

In previous incarnations of this cycle in January, the impetus could be just to seek more, want more in the relationship or the drivers and motivation together in the relationship.

Not this time.

This one wants the bare necessities and it is going to lay it all out there for examination.

Capricorn wants to know how well prepared we will be for the end of our life, and ultimately this may come up as we question who will take care of us in our old age.  Is this enough to commit to in a relationship, just this one very important question we have in our lives?

Will the partner take care of us, or will they abandon us?  Any time someone tells the story of how one partner took care of the other in times of need, the heart automatically aligns with the soul and breathes in the air of kindness and compassion.

Until Jupiter goes direct it is time to prepare, to put our ducks in a row and review our plans, how will we move forward and what will we communicate?  Are there several ideas to bring in some different streams of income?  Plans of expansion or new car purchases may all have been on hold.  For Gemini’s who got to experience the bonus and wealth of Jupiter before it went retrograde, they will finally see their lives start to fall back into place, wondering what happened to that lucky streak that they were on before the retrograde.

Saturn still in mutual reception with Pluto will keep exacting the Scorpionic secrets from the depths of the crypt and all those ferreted away little black lies that seem to want to expose themselves to such an extent, their bearers may feel like revealing them of their own volition, just to cut the guilt and suspense holding them prisoners.

Sex has varying degrees of importance in relationships; it certainly has plenty of media exposure being used in any way conceivable to sell goods and services and now even the news.  How much value we place on sex in our lives and certainly in our relationships will be discussed, mulled and considered especially as the two planets dance in close degree as Pluto finds his way home to Scorpio like a horse running into its stall.

Ultimately, Saturn wants wisdom and Pluto wants the truth, if we point our sails into the wind of Venus in this direction, we should make wise choices that will sail us far along into the future of our old age.  The ultimate question, ‘what do we value’?

 One more thing I would like to add that I see becoming prevalent:
That would be the issue of conspiracy itself.  I think that it is easy enough to take a certain amount of people seeking the truth and derail them into the most absurd and strange, simply to make a case in point later that again disempowers the energy of critical thinking.
With Saturn in Scorpio in sextile and mutual reception to Pluto in Capricorn, this is bound to happen more and more.
Unfortunately, in the middle of all of it, what I believe to be salient issues may also get swept under the rug.  In the case of the Sandy Hook tragedy, the topic of ‘psychotropics’ that ‘ALL THE SHOOTERS IN THESE MASS SHOOTINGS’ are on or off of at the time, should be what is being discussed front and center.  Why are so many people on these drugs?  Why are so many children being drugged, legally?
What is the underlying problem?
Next, why is there such an increase in these types of shootings?  We have always had guns available, so that doesn’t really make sense as the underlying cause and issue, yet that is what this is becoming, a debate on gun control and once again, the division takes place.
The other salient point worth noting, is the possible relationship as strange as that is, to the LIBOR scandal, and how many people don’t know anything about a 300 TRILLION DOLLAR SCANDAL.
So, scandals and underlying memes, and the further detriment to TRUTH seekers as a simple bunch of crazies, and everything attached to that easily being dismissed along with the far out concepts that are used as bait and successfully diminish truth which can be stranger than fiction.

Uranus is still brandishing steel in Aries and its square to Pluto, not finished leaving blood on the battlefield and the scraps of what we all must realize never will be so we don’t need to start.

This is after all a Cardinal point, and a new moon, so what can we do to tap into the energies if Jupiter is pulling back the energy of any expansion and making funds scarce to invest in future growth and plans?

We can write.  We can use the sextile from Venus to Neptune and dream.  It is still in a square to Jupiter in Retrograde, so we will think of how we will build our new dreams, using little means, making use of our resources that we already have, lighting our candles and creating dream castles in theory, plan and having everything in place to move forward with Jupiter.

We can play music, watch motivational movies or documentaries that infuse us with inspiration and motivation that fuels our dreams and ignite our spirits.

We can catch up on sleep.

We can research and gather information.  We can treasure those around us, just for having them to treasure.

 

We can REMEMBER and gather our split souls, memories, trials and losses to prioritize and streamline our world into salient flashes of our souls true desires.

 

Who are we really?  There was a lot of talk and scare tactics screaming the world would end last month.  It didn’t end, but there have been endings of a different sort.

There are some things that are never going to be the same, ask yourself if this is not so?

You know it in the deepest part of your being; things will never be the same again.

 

Once you realize this and stop pretending, now what?


We look into the ice melting, the sun pouring through and glistening in honey-amber sparkles, like our cats that find the sunny spot in the room, and curl up and drift into worlds of wonder.  There is always magic to be found if we look to the simplest of joys.

If you need sleep, don’t push it, and let people know you need time to hibernate, that is what the seasons are for.

If you need magic, then go out and find it.  Watch the snowflakes drift down in a cascade of wonder.  Smell the scent of humous as the earth wakes up in bits and starts on a sunny day when the snow is running into streams and rivulets around every natural formation defiantly holding its ground.

You will hear it in the chirps of Cardinals starkly contrasting our winter wonderland and bare branches showing off their textures and unadorned shades of browns and grays.

Watch a Robin hop gingerly and stop, before he reaches his beak into newly exposed soil and play tug of war with an earthworm.

They are preparing for spring, and we can start to imagine what our spring will bloom into; before we know it we will be having hot fun in the summertime.

Mars at 13* of Aquarius is just finishing up his square to Saturn, and the daisy chain that is creating all finding its way to download into Scorpio.

Still, Mars in Aquarius wants us to consider the dynamics of community and our individual role within the society we are all creating together.  Here is where our energy is flowing now.

New Year 2013 Astrological Currents


Happy New Year of 2013!

Well, we have by most accounts crossed the great divide and we are beginning to move into the other side and into the light.  This is the perfect time to illustrate this using the analogy of the Winter Solstice, which is the Sun standing still in the heavens and then proceeding to move forward (after three days) increasing daylight in the Northern Hemisphere.  Now, even though this is true, the increase happens slowly, incrementally until the summer solstice, when this changes.  This is the beginning of the light out of darkness in the 26,000 year cycle.

So too is this crossing into the Age of Aquarius going to be an incremental and slow shift with the ‘Awakener’ Uranus’s domain and the Great Revealing.  We will follow the man with the vase into his house of Aquarius.

The planetary alignments all help to unlock this great lock, if we listen closely, we can almost hear the tumblers dropping the links as each aspect conspires to inspire us into the greater awareness of who we are in the universe individually and as a people/humankind.


As we have stated many times now, there is a powerful square from Uranus (the Awakener) in Aries to Pluto (Transformer) in Capricorn happening and which will continue until the last exact square on March 16, 2015.  We must add however, that the three degree orb between the square will be ebbing back and forth as both Pluto and Uranus retrograde and will not be free of each other because of this orb until April 20 of 2016! So transformation it is.

THE COST OF WAR
With the square, Uranus is ripping the fabric of time and being transformed in the fires of Pluto.   Pluto has been pounding in the death nail in Capricorn and demanding not only that Capricorns transform into a more evolved version of the previous manifestation, but that all those on the Cardinal cross do too. In the meantime, Uranus transiting Aries magnifies that Ram, the head of the chart and our version and concept of war and how we do battle; how we follow the words, “I AM” in our life and our personal world or sacrifice to the greater good of the group/community.  As Uranus awakens that aspect of us, we question what we are fighting for or about and think of new ways to deal with the aggressive nature of Mars the warrior.
Make not mistake, this is Pluto's year.  We might remember Orpheus and his quest to retrieve his bride.  The myth demonstrates the importance of Pluto "the Rich" as the possessor of a quest-object. Orpheus performing before Pluto and Persephone was a common subject of ancient and later Western literature and art, and one of the most significant mythological themes of the classical tradition. ~ from Wiki.

So, do you think you have something unique that you have not found and nurtured to bring into this world or have you done this already?  How have you evolved?  Have you made your quest to Pluto?  Have you rescued your sacred partner or gone in before the Gods to steal some fire?  Prometheus?

Can we have our own unique sense of self and the FREEDOM to express our individuality or must we sacrifice that freedom for some sense of security?

On the other end of that spectrum, how much freedom are we entitled to before that impinges on the rights of the community/others?

Our government is responding through the use of drones and increased spy-warfare and surveillance.  New Technology (Uranus in Mars) They want to remove more of our freedoms (Uranus) or we could even say, cause the death (Pluto) of them.

Now, this square is the first hard transit to each other since they were ‘married’ or conjunct in Virgo back in the 60’s.  In October of 1965 we had Uranus conjunct Pluto at 18* of Virgo.  Right there in the middle the two come together in the land of the Virgin, the service people of the world and those who want us to learn how to make more with less or do without.  They want organization and order to streamline efficiency. 

This conjunction happens in the middle of another Saturn to Uranus opposition when Saturn was at 18* of Pisces and Uranus was at 18* Virgo as stated previously.  Those oppositions happened between April 1, 1965 until January 1, 1967 and happened again starting on November 3, 2008 in reverse position at 18* Virgo and Pisces respectively.  (Now do you hear the tumblers?)

So the Lord of time was giving the opposing field of creation/stress to Uranus and Pluto in Virgo.  This is also important in the natal chart, to understand the path one has traveled and where the Transformer, the Awakener and the structure of hierarchy and time have meted out their energies to awaken, organize and transform us.

We must start back when they were conjunct in Virgo, who rules HEALTH & SERVICE and the Sabian symbol for 19* deg Virgo  is ‘A Swimming Race’.

This coincides with the full moon we had in March's Virgo full Moon in 2012 which occurred on March 8.  So we have been in a race all the way since then, but the tumult and true goal has always been within us, with the results in panoramic display all around us for those with eyes to see.

She asked us back then, (In the conjunction of Pluto and Uranus and the opposition of Saturn and Uranus in 1965 and again when it came up in 2008 then in the new moon in March, they are triggers) to watch what we were doing with our bodies, to the earth and our food.  She told us, that there was transformation of Health and the earth taking place and that we needed to pay attention.  There she was, even as Saturn opposed this very degree back then too, in Pisces the ‘swimmer/fish’ and so the emotional content pops us, the spiritual depths of our belief’s and psyche’s are all being challenged.

This all is based on how much we have learned to control ourselves, our drives, our emotions and how we have set our goals.  We have to step out of the race, to ask ourselves where are we going and who are we in the race with?  Remember, if you are looking at the other racers, you are losing the race and energy necessary to make it to the finish line.

No one does the sabian symbols better than Lynda Hill, so a look at what she wrote on the full moon in 2012, is a wonderful insight into what we are all dealing with now.


On the other end of this spectrum, Saturn in the opposition: Pisces 19
Sabian Symbol: The young man and old one have walked many miles but as master and pupil they neither are fatigued.

Now, how does that fit?  We simply must tap into our elder self, the one that has journeyed this path so many times and came for just this time.  I know, this could and probably has gotten old, with so many tired right now.  What sleep are you really getting?  That is one thing;we just need in gobs and gobs.  Don’t short this out, because without it, everything else becomes more challenging and daunting.

As these planets rip the fabric of our world apart, so too do we see the electromagnetic field around us being punctured with holes and new and very strange cloud formations.

Now, there are plenty of what are called ‘conspiracy’s’ regarding the origins of these cloud formations.  I mention that they are ‘so called’ because the word conspiracy has a lot of charge on it, but what I see it do is end any form of discussion and debate with the purposeful diminishment of thought the word conspiracy itself causes.  Cease and desist all critical thinking and get in line for the formulaic answer we have all been fed.  All from a simple word being given so much power, that even intelligent people stop using critical thinking.  We all lose out, from the lack of participation of everyone's minds thinking about all possibilities.

That said, whatever the origin, the reality is that we are witnessing plenty of strange cloud formations, many new official names for them, and increased weather extremes.

While continuing on the electromagnetic field shifting and tearing, that seems to be a result at least in part of the core shifting.  I was given this very clearly and then predicted the Haiti and Chilean earthquakes, I also predicted that there would be a major event on March 11, and we had the Japanese Tsunami following that earthquake.

All of these were posted on my facebook page before they happened and in many writings.

The reason I bring this up, is I felt the core shifting inside of the earth; this causes the tearing of the plates, the upward momentum it is not the plates moving that causes the shifting.  If the earth’s core is shifting, it is shifting within us too, that is to say, our own cores are shifting inside of us, so what do we anchor into then?  The electromagnetic field shifts along with this, more tearing.

With everything in what seems to be a race going faster and faster around us, what do we do?  First, we stop racing with the perception of what success means, it isn’t stuff, it will take us all down, and Virgo does not mean more stuff, it means using less to make more.

Anything in excess….ANYTHING will have consequences.

Our ‘stuff’ will be swept down the river that is flowing faster and faster, think of Sandy and count your blessings if you weren’t one of the people living in that storm.

But what if you were?  What is the foundation you are building your life upon?

7:24 Therefore whosoever heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them, I will liken him unto a wise man, which built his house upon a rock:
7:25 And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell not: for it was founded upon a rock.
7:26 And every one that heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them not, shall be likened unto a foolish man, which built his house upon the sand:
7:27 And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell: and great was the fall of it.
7:28 And it came to pass, when Jesus had ended these sayings, the people were astonished at his doctrine:
7:29 For he taught them as one having authority, and not as the scribes.

Now what would a rock be?  It is where we put our thoughts, for there will our heart be also.  This brings me to the numerology:

We have the II, which is the High Priestess and always will be from now on as previous posts have described, you can read more on this here: http://arcoftheancients.blogspot.com/search?updated-min=2011-01-01T00:00:00-08:00&updated-max=2012-01-01T00:00:00-08:00&max-results=1

We also have the number 20:

Judgment, we will also have this until we reach 2100 years, so think about this:  We must remind ourselves that we are living in the times of judgment, all our karma dues are up in our faces, and we will not get out of paying this debt.  If you have already, good for you.

It stands to reason and falls in line with astrology too, this is karmic debt we have all created together, especially since the conjunction in the mid ‘60’s of Uranus and Pluto.

If we extrapolate that onto the bigger picture, we see what happened with Agri-business and now have chem. Giant Monsanto the biggest player in the food industry and we are all paying the price for allowing this agent of death, Agent Orange to be precise as the harbinger of what we decided collectively was good for us.  We wanted more for less, without the consideration of the ecological consequences.

We are letting this go even further with the now ‘fracking’ industry, where we are literally drilling out the foundation underneath our feet, and the result is spilling chemicals into the water tables, which we cannot remove.

Wait until the opposition, if we don’t listen to the square!  That is our children and grandchildren who will really bare the pain of that selfishness and ignorance.

Ah, but technology (Uranus) will promise us new ways of cleaning this, eh?

Uranus is not a cleaner, but by sudden lightening-like episodes out of the blue.  In catastrophic earth changes.

The way we need to work with Uranus, is new technology that is the alternative to ecological devastation now.

That holds true for our bodies.  The idea of living recklessly however we want, and then letting ‘technology’ clean up by cutting out the mess later, is not rational thinking.

It is madness.
Judgement is mine sayeth the Lord, so get off of your cross and take whatever little baby step you can, making practical (Virgo) application of manifesting your light.  Whatever way seems like a uniquely you gift to the world, without taking from it or using more excess, take that step.

We also have the infamous number 13:

Yes, this always looks so ominous and sometimes this is exactly what it portends.  It also can simply mean endings of the things which really needed to end naturally anyway.

So let us start with some history on the lucky number 13.

First, 12 apostles plus one Christ is 13.

It is the 13th sperm that is said to break the egg to impregnate and start NEW LIFE.

It was On October 13, 1307, a day so infamous that Friday the 13th would become a synonym for ill fortune, officers of King Philip IV of France carried out mass arrests in a well-coordinated dawn raid that left several thousand Templars — knights, sergeants, priests, and serving brethren — in chains, charged with heresy, blasphemy, various obscenities, and homosexual practices. None of these charges was ever proven, even in France — and the Order was found innocent elsewhere — but in the seven years following the arrests, hundreds of Templars suffered excruciating tortures intended to force "confessions," and more than a hundred died under torture or were executed by burning at the stake.

That was taken from: http://urbanlegends.about.com/cs/historical/a/friday_the_13th_4.htm simply to make my life and writing easier right now, while sharing a point.

We also associate the number 13 with Ophucius as mentioned previously.  We must learn to be the serpent handler, the eagle that holds the snake rather than the reverse.  TAke the higher road.  Be an eagle and see the bigger picture.

I must say, I do feel we will see a number of strange illnesses, even perhaps…and I don’t like to share this foreboding thought, but plagues may well be upon us this year.

Between the radiation from Fukushima continuously spreading its doses over the planet (and largely all but vanished from mainstreem news as if it is all hunky dory and thus our minds) we are having toxic dumps on us all.

 
This is being absorped into our earth, food and animals too. 

Let’s take a look back astrologically to see where we were: In the United States, where Fermi and Szilárd had both emigrated, this led to the creation of the first man-made reactor, known as Chicago Pile-1, which achieved criticality on December 2, 1942. This work became part of the Manhattan Project, which made enriched uranium and built large reactors to breed plutonium for use in the first nuclear weapons, which were used on the cities of Hiroshima and Nagasaki.  ~taken from Wikipedia.

We had a conjunction of Saturn conjunct Uranus at 29* of Taurus (the earth/Goddess) back in April of 1942, where we thought we could ‘harness’ Saturn, ‘new technology’ Uranus.  We split the Atom, and as I write in my book, we have been ‘splitting Adam’ ever since.

Newer Cold Fusion technology such as this: http://jinnwe.com/quest.php?id=512

Is exactly the order of what we need.  We don’t need to split anything else apart, we need to come together.

We need this in our country, the USA.  No more of this divisiveness when what is so urgently needed is to calm the disparity, no more divide and conquer.  Don't be fooled into thinking you need the blue OR the red pill, don't take ANY pill, and if you do, make it purple!

As hard as the task may be, we need to find common ground not more of the Great Divide.

The future after all, is the one we create together.

Pluto will keep transforming (be the death of) a lot of archaic and worn out structures that just don’t work anymore.  It will continue as it did in the

Great Depression under the square to Uranus, to devastate the economy until we find newer ways of making a living with the earth, advancing our souls to the beat they are asking us to march in time to and evolving!

That last square was in 1934, when Uranus was at 23* of Aries (Aries again) and Pluto was at 23* of Cancer, the mother.

We had the Great Depression, and we are seeing that repeat itself to a certain extent, how bad will it get?  I will say it isn’t over…not until the last square on March 16, 2015, when Uranus has travelled to 15* of Aries and Pluto is at 15* of Capricorn.
 
These are the most vulnerable signs and degrees as well as what lies between starting with the first square and all the Cardinal signs by degree related, including Libra and Cancer.  You are being transformed and there is no way around this.

This is not out of the blue, it has been a steady process since the conjunction back in 1965 for all Cardinal signs, sometimes in an easier supporting role, and others more difficult.

We should see an upturn in the economy as we go along even from this time forward, with some more pitfalls along the way too.
In 2015, we will rise like the Phoenix, and keep rising.
 
Now lets add to get the final number: 6, The Lovers and representative of VIRGO again!

So, we see the theme?  Virgo…..which is also the 9 card or the Hermit.

We must go inside and find our own light, our lantern to light the way into the dark times and nights ahead.  The Lovers, wants can delude us into ‘A Perfect Love’ and thereby we never find REAL love, because it is messy, not perfect at all.

I have often written about this, alchemical love, but it needs repeating now, and hopefully the words will find a way of falling onto this page succinctly enough to take root and build a tree of the knowledge of love within all of us.

Love is not some trivialized or trite saying found on a postcard; making short quick sayings that are entirely lacking of the fierceness and richness of bold deep love.  Love is not all beautiful....it is tangled up and dark.  Oh sure, in the beginning it can trigger every dopamine transmitter we have and send us into ecstasy with just a thought, a fragrance a voice.  (Some people grow addicted to this lesser version of love, and never get to tread the deeper waters of the mystery, remaining standing at the gates).
Anyone that has been in any sort of love relationship...has experienced many facets, like a shiny diamond that seduces inside we go willingly falling after the spark and into the dark cave of desire and we burn in the flames of reality and the passions of sexuality that can float on the current of waves of life like a life raft at times, but we must let go and into that fire that transforms us, removing all the walls of protection and safety. That is what love does....it makes us more than we knew we were....we grab that fire and we see...we see for the first time a shiny jewel inside us....and we bring that out and we light up the world with it.
Anything less than this is simply not love...it is superficial as nice as it may feel and even though it can trigger those friendly little dopamine doses into our system. 
When you bring that flame out....you have something...if the relationship survives....it gets deeper and richer....cuts and bruises and tears and spit and all.
If it doesn't....then two people are not invested....and that is just shallow displays of the outside of a flame....there has been no alchemy....no distilling of the spiritual essence from one another.  Life will provide plenty of fuel to create the challenges, the sparks.  How we manage with each other, whether we have let go (Love really does not have any pride, especially false pride) or we cling to some sense of safety and never really get to take the big dive, is up to us.

But that is love.

Too bad so much of our ‘entrainment/entertainment’ is making up some fairy tale in our minds, teaching puerile versions and even stimulating preteens into believing they must be sexy, and that is love.  Instead of putting a stop to this, parents want to be friends with their children, and they don’t see the harm and the theft of childhood that is taking place in all the over the top video’s children listen to now.

Ahhh but now I digress.

Let us introduce some further information before I wrap this up in positive form and ideas:

This is the year of the Water Snake in Chinese astrology. -- which begins on February 10, 2013!  With the new moon in Aquarius.

The year of the Black Water Snake taps back into the energy of Virgo again, using wisdom in our decision making process and accessing the Virgo beginnings back in 1965, as well as the recent opposition from Saturn in Virgo (which started this recent time frame energy) to Uranus in Pisces , we want decisions based on thrift and wisdom, rather than excesses with fair labor (working towards getting our needs met and for wages, rather than a handout) shall see solutions and success to anyone who is applying this formula.  It is powerful for anyone doing intellectual work, writing and will be very strong indicators for advancements in new car technology, expect to see some pretty mind blowing new cars introduced (finally) that will have some real advancements as well as the movement into new infrastructures to support these newer versions. Let’s look at the snake:  The Milky Way is the Great Serpent in the sky, or the Great Mother, the Goddess Nut with Many Teets. (milk)

 

Aesclepius

The serpent is the symbol of Asculapius (Aesculapius) because it represented rejuvenation (renewal) as demonstrated by the periodic shedding of its skin. Many believed that snakes lived forever and that they helped discover health-giving medicinal herbs.

According to one legend, a snake brought such herbs to Asculapius (Aesculapius) and to show his gratitude, he took on the shape of a serpent, too.

We see him holding the wooden staff which was also designated as his symbol, for reaons too numerous to mention, but you do have a staff in your own spine.


Native American myths associate the shedding of a snake's skin with rebirth and renewal of all life.  Here we see both the repetition of health as a guiding theme and the shedding of the skin, or the death of what no longer serves us.

                             

We must learn the lessons of Ophuchius (the 13th sign) the serpent handler or Aaron with his staff that turned into the snake and become like an eagle to hold the snake, to handle the snake.

This is the domain of Pluto, who rules Scorpio.

Will medicine rule over us or will we learn to master medicine?

As we heal the layers within us, we will see clearer and clearer that which has been occulted on the world stage, many things that have been going on since the beginning, as the dance played back and forth.  Good men and women of the past, have seen clearly and fought the good fight to bring us to awareness, most often called ‘crazy’ for doing so, so few can see it seems lunacy. 
We also have cognative dissonance, it is much easier to shut down the truth that is more unbearable, than to have to go out on a limb and stand against the powers that are there to present the limit, the resistance.  After all, the measurement of resistance is Ohm’s Law, which I have always found ironice, OMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMM!


Resist! 

Don’t go over the cliff with the flow!

Fiscal or otherwise!

As we heal and shed those layers, we can leave the past that no longer serves us, other than the strength and wisdom (wise serpent) losing fears that may keep us from becoming authentic and exposing the beauty of who we are.  So Plutonian Virgo, Ophiuchus as the Phoenix is born out of the ashes of the past.

This is the year, ruled by the snake, the number 13 and being Pluto’s year to use the power of this to heal and emerge~Fearless.


Saturn at 9* Scorpio is supporting the Sun at 10* Capricorn, so the more we can structure ourselves, the more support we will get.  Don’t forget, Saturn rules the day of rest!

Get plenty of it as mentioned before!

 

Our psyche’s will be tested, but the more we build into the mutual reception of Saturn in
Scorpio and the sextiles, and believe the whispers that urge us into a deeper us….the more we will have an easier time of things.

Mercry and Venus are both trining (supporting) the Moon, so we must tap into the communication of feelings and once again, find the greatest of these, which is LOVE.

The heart will always be the WAY, but these astrological configurations are really peeling us open to have nothing left, less we find them on our own journey and take control with that one foundation.

We won’t be seeing the stagnation break up until Jupiter goes direct at the end of the month, so hang in there, and PLAN now, don’t try to move the mountain, it is not going to move.

 

Saturn is also still in a nice trine supporting Chiron, and Chiron is the key to Uranus, who wants to wake us up.  Healing will be the order of the day.

What visits as a sickness is what we chose to come and heal.

 

Each step is stepping into the light even if it is only the beginning of a new 26,000 year cycle, we are setting up the new us, our new beginnings.  The holes that Pluto sqaure to Uranus will rip into our atmospheric beings and deep emotional resevoir’s; but they are weak spots to open and allow the light of the new energy into the deepest recesses of our psyche’s.  This doesn’t come easy.  In Japan, there is a saying called: “wabi-sabi”  which in its general essence is the Japanese art of finding beauty in imperfection, in the scars we bear in life that open us up to a larger version of our self; in nature, of believing in the seasons and the natural course of life, decay, and death.

From Wikipedia we find this definition:

"Wabi-sabi is the most conspicuous and characteristic feature of traditional Japanese beauty and it occupies roughly the same position in the Japanese pantheon of aesthetic values as do the Greek ideals of beauty and perfection in the West."[1] "if an object or expression can bring about, within us, a sense of serene melancholy and a spiritual longing, then that object could be said to be wabi-sabi."[2] "[Wabi-sabi] nurtures all that is authentic by acknowledging three simple realities: nothing lasts, nothing is finished, and nothing is perfect."[3]

 

I can’t think of a better way to end this, the Japanese concept being the perfect ending all by itself.

Except this:

“And, behold, the veil of the temple was rent in twain from the top to the bottom; and the earth did quake, and the rocks rent; and the graves were opened; and many bodies of the saints which slept arose” ~Mathew 27:51 and 52. Now look at the Judgment Card again.

 



The only other thing, is this: Make sure you have plenty of Breathing Easy and Sleep on hand!
