Eclipsing the Midnight Sun, New Moon in Taurus April 29, 2014

In the wee hours of the morning, at 1:17AM on Tuesday, April 29th, the moon makes its 28 day visit to mate up with the sun.  Lady Luna and the sun will join together at 8* of Taurus.
In the wee hours of the morning, at 1:17AM on Tuesday, April 29

It will be a partial solar eclipse, which is another lever in the eclipse pattern during the Cardinal Cross. 

At 8 degrees of Taurus, we are talking about possessions, Taurus is “I Have” so this will be largely about what you have, your right to what you have, and this mating by the moon and sun is a sensual mating.  We are in the first decan of Taurus which is ruled by Venus/Aphrodite, who is now at 25* of PIcses.  This is a very determined and loyal aspect of Taurus.  She doesn’t give up easily (If at all) and will plod along patiently working towards gaining those ‘possessions’ she lusts after, or de-SIRES.

With an orb of 4* they are travelling with Mercury/Hermes who is now at 12* of Taurus. 

But let’s just take a look at what is happening with the eclipse, shall we?

Here, LaLuna will conjunct or mate with her paramour the sun, and she will stand between the earth and the sun, blocking out the energy of the male light that sustains the earth.

Emotions will either be turned down, repressed or explosive during this transit and into the coming 2 weeks.  Feeling weepy or depressed; or a lack of energy and motivation are all common under such a stressful sky.  Do we really have what it takes to set out after the goals which will bring us towards the desires of what we want?  What do we WANT and NEED?
As the Taurus Moon, so feminine in this earthy sign, stands in front of her mate, she will block his energy, and he will infuse her soulful power just after midnight in Eastern Daylight Time, calling upon our deep reserves and our feelings, drawing upon them like a snake charmer, she will pull up from the well of our soul the very essence of our being.

Now is the time to anoint yourself using ArcAncient’s exquisite essential oils and blends, especially ‘Light Spirits’ and ‘Ascension’, go to: www.arcancient.com.

You will also find a Sacred Anointing Ritual on that website under Directions For Use.

The light that is captured in the essences (all plants use a process of photosynthesis which is capturing the essence of the suns energy) will help to draw out your own light.  The ‘WHO’ you are integrally here as, to bring your own light into this world, and seeing the reflection of what you HAVE, as a mirror.

She is lusty and the sun will gladly give over to her his power, illuminating around  her dark body as she draws him inside, so too will we draw into our own being, that infusion of the lusty and desirous Taurus Moon and Sun.

What will we cast off?  An eclipse always portends an ending (YES, and in this eclipse pattern we are in, this will happen over and over under the very powerful strain of the URanus square to Pluto, but more importantly now, these are Blood Moons under the Grand Cardinal Cross).

So, I remind you of this story:

There is always the death, the small ones along the way and those that take us into the largess of the universe and into the great beyond.  When I died, back in 1976, I was very, very sick.  To say there was pain would be an understatement.  But, the interesting and miraculous thing along the way is the body’s ability to manage pain.  At some point, the pain gives way to the body flooding itself with its own sedatives, which wash away that pain and take you into levels of worlds as you float down the corridor of unconsciousness and into death’s open arms.

I bring this up, since this is what we are also dealing with, the small and large deaths and the release   of endorphins, ("endogenous morphine") which are endogenous opioid peptides that function as inhibitory neurotransmitters. The pituitary gland and the hypothalamus produce these endorphins to overcome pain. They are also released during exercise and excitement, when we eat certain foods, when we fall in love, and during sexual activity.
These peptides resemble opiates in their ability to produce analgesia and a feeling of well-being. You are taken into the delusion that nothing is wrong…because the pain is subsiding.  The food, the sex, the jog in the park; all can take you out of reality if for just one moment, and lessen the pain.

Consider, this first fall of Jesus under His cross. (Station number 3) His flesh is open and bleeding, His head crowned with thorns. As weak as he had become, He could barely walk, still He got up and kept walking and carrying the large and very heavy CROSS.  He was continuously whipped and struck by the soldiers who made His journey all the more painful and difficult, yet He keeps on walking, falling two more times.

So too, as we navigate these times, what once would have been a major shock to the system and to our reality, becomes savoir faire, we keep walking with the CROSS.

As we get over the initial shocks and absorb the reality, our world is changing in dramatic ways, but like the frog in the boiling water, we won’t notice it after the acute moments, as this just another fall with our CROSS, we get up (some sadly, will not get up each time, and will choose to exit the cycle, their own cross too much to bear) and move forward, towards what our DESIRES are drawing us towards.

It should become less strenuous and ominous, as our body floods us with the necessary relievers to help us through the time, save for the moments that will bring us into direct confrontation of the underlying triggers that want attention.

These triggers can motivate us into our better selves, an evolutionary being who ‘is with the father in heaven’ allowing the figurative deaths of our lower nature.  As the snake crawls on his belly (Pluto) his lower nature wants to rape Persephone, to have what he desires.

The snake consumes things whole, as the moon will try and swallow the sun, she is just not big enough to capture the entirety of light, the energy and source, the snake cannot swallow everything either, but the addiction remains, since he is never full.

Our own alimentary canal is our lower serpent, which must be fed to survive on planet earth.

All addictions are some perversion of this need to sate the being with emptiness, from what will never fill the hole, as it gets bigger and bigger with the false illusions (Neptune) of the promise that will never deliver.

Consumption was the name of a disease, which is now called Tuberculosis.


So, we will shed another skin, digest what we can (take into our awareness what we can) and leave the rest for another day.

The wide water trine between Saturn/EL/LORD of the rings retrograde at 20* Scorpio, Chiron/Wounded healer at 16*PIsces, (and Venus/Aphrodite leading in a very wide orb 25* PIsces) along with Jupiter/Zeus now charging full speed ahead at 14* of Cancer; all will be drawing us into submergence and addictive tendencies to handle this stressful time.

We can assuage our troubled minds and hearts through day-dreaming, music, dancing, and some will choose the stronger variety of alcohol, drugs or choose the higher path of meditation, perhaps even mindful exercise.

Nonetheless, Saturn loves the support of Jupiter/Zeus in Cancer, so we might feel that support come from someone in the home circle, or who feels like family to us.



There will be an expansion now in home circles and events, with Zeus lording in the realms of the home, and Cancer is another hoarder of sorts, they like to hold onto things and having their homes adorned with their prized possessions, much like the Taurean, is where they draw comfort.

Be aware that everything is not as it seems, something are as hidden as the sun, with only the edges bending around the emotions that desire, the occlusion won’t be fully known until the moon tries to warn us again, as she waxes into fullness.

The control mechanism trying to keep our emotions in check, will rumble under the surface like the volcano it really is, building up energy and rattling the cages of our beings, making us feel nervous and filled with trepidation. 
This is the first fall, get up when you have rested and listened, hearing the deeper truth that is your own clarion call.

But this is not over, we will fall again, the cross is heavy and we have much to do. 

Sadness may overwhelm some like the dark moon eclipsing the midnight sun, if you have the wings or the light, be kind, and don’t judge those who may fall just as the saviour does, or are you judging Him too?  There but for the Grace of God, go I.

On June 16th, Mars passes the threshold of the Grand Cross again, squaring Uranus again on the 25th at 16* having already squared Pluto on the 14th at 12* because Pluto is in retrograde Capricorn.

A Red Letter Day, Cardinal Cross


The term, 'Red Letter Day' originated from medieval times when the first Council of Nicaea in 325 decreed the saints' days, feasts and other holy days, which came to be printed on church calendars in red. Illuminated manuscripts which became popular works of art often marked initial capitals and highlighted words in red ink, known as rubrics.
In the book of Kells, these ILLUMINATIONS form one of the most prized and valued books of antiquity, its origins being somewhere from between 760-804 and 815-20, surviving the Viking raids, it is now in the Library at Trinity College, Dublin. The Book of Kells includes the four Gospels of the New Testament written in Latin, decorated with innumerable illuminations, illustrations and miniature images elaborately drawn in colours, some of which had to be imported from far across the European Continent, an expensive task at that time.
In the New Testament, the words of Jesus were written in red ink, to highlight His words, and give authenticity to the biblical teachings, as well as to draw one to 'The Living Word' more clearly. That process is believed to have begun with Klopsch's red-letter New Testament, which bore this title: The New Testament... With All the Words Recorded Therein, as Having Been Spoken by Our Lord, Printed in Color.
First published in 1899, Klopsch conceived the idea of printing some of the Biblical text with red ink. When reading Jesus' words,
"This cup is the new covenant in my blood, which is poured out for you." (Luke 22:20), he thought of printing all of Jesus' words in red, the color of his blood.
Here is the definition of Rubric from dictionary.com:
  1. a title, heading, or initial letter in a book, manuscript, or section of a legal code, esp. one printed or painted in red ink or in some similarly distinguishing manner 2. a set of rules of conduct or procedure
    3. a set of directions for the conduct of Christian church services, often printed in red in a prayer book or missal AND an obsolete name for red ochre with origins here: — adj 6. written, printed, or marked in red AND most importantly: [rubrike red ochre, red lettering, from Latin rubrīca ( terra ) red (earth), ruddle, from ruber red]
    We have all seen the large 'Rubicon' red letters, which open up the story and the

    paragraph. Blood runs red, it is the cup of life.
    Here we see the red male cardinal, perched on its snowy branch; it is the perfect picture to explain the retrograde Mars and his position on the Cardinal Cross. Mars is in retrograde, and he is the blood, life force, passion in astrology. I often compare Mars to the lava that erupts into the clay vessel of the earthly body, and animates as with the breath of God into the nostrils. As the ruler of the first house in astrology, I also make it related to the number 1, ever since I had the dream with the three witches in the cave. In that dream the oldest witch, the crone, asked me a series of questions all regarding numerology, astrology, etc. As she asked me the questions, the fire around the cauldron flashed across the walls and lit up markings, symbols and ancient forms and texts. She would nod her head with my responses and told me I was doing very well, but I had forgotten 'the old ways' regarding relationship to the months. I awoke with the realization that the higher order of numbers relate Aries/Mars not to the number 4 and the fourth month as it is now (because of Pope Gregory) but to the first house, the number one as it is the beginning of spring. Winter is the elder time, wisdom that culminates in PIcses, with the white tops on the mountain that represent Capricorn the goat, winter, hardly the order of I (One) since Capricorn was an elder who through life and lifetimes, had ascending up the mountain of life, it was not a beginning, save for the one who has found the ending and therefore the beginning also.
Mars was at 14* on that cross, soon to click into his position of 13* as the whole thing forged into the Philosophers Stone, written on the tablets as the Christed sacrifice took form in the Blood MOONs, that will continue on into next year, and the whole thing is the Beginning, not an ending. An eclipse, such as the Blood Moon that set this stage and 'was a sign in the heavens for those who have eyes to see', will have an effect for an entire year and that will lead into all the days that follow. Normally, the moon sets the stage for its 28 day cycle, but this blood moon, connected to the Grand Cardinal Cross (ALL RED LETTER DAYS), WILL HAVE AN ACUTE AFFECT ON THOSE WITH PLANETS AND ASPECTS ESPECIALLY AT 13/14*.
Yes, the actual 'initial' crucifixion may be over, but it is far from OVER. Because, this is an initiation, and it is just as the Red Letter connotes, a beginning.
Will the pressures ease off at times? YES, but just like lava, it will erupt over the next year at times, especially whenever these cardinal points are aspected and triggered. On May 20th, Mars will go direct and then on Monday, June 16th he will once again CROSS OVER
that critical 13 degree point. While he is pulling back the veil in Libra, and he is opposing URanus, and squaring both Pluto in Capricorn and Jupiter in Cancer, he is opening up the deep wounds. This is very Chirotic, (Chiron being the wounded healer, or Christed aspect in the chart; he is also the 'key' to the chart as I have outlined many times by now, and is in the shape of a key symbolically for that reason) so it can be very overwhelming to those people who are often the 'sacrificial lambs' and simply cast aside with the titles, 'crazy' or 'eye rolling', but then worse than that, when proven correct, not given proper credit and slighted again. This can be the cruciform of an excruciating experience: "My God, my God why hast Thou forsaken me?" Where are all those apostles anyway? Oh, that's right; they have run off and hidden, save for the women, and especially, Mary Magdalene, who never leaves Jesus's side. It is She who comes and sees Him risen first.

Up from the depths (PLUTO In Capricorn, which will cause problems with: teeth, bones, knees, any part of the skeletal system) comes Mars/Ares, bubbling up to the surface this blood, from old wounds being reopened with current life situations, as those around you reveal themselves, in this time of REVEALATIONS.
Pluto will ask to shed the skins of those old lives, for you to rise to a new level as the Eagle flies with the Dove. It is only in the power of the Holy Spirit, the Divine Revealer, where Grace and Mercy can comfort you. If you are lucky, you will have angels both of the earthly variety, and those who will reach through the veil and show you the WAY.
Don't rush through this, rest when needed and find the solace to repair the wounds and heal and slake the soul. Before you jaunt off with a smile, take the time to sit with the wounded child, and LISTEN TO THE PAIN, IT WILL TAKE YOU TO THE SOURCE OF YOUR LIFE, THE WITNESS OF TIME (SATURN) to reveal who you are. In this way, integrity forms a whole and renewed self, which will be lighter and literally LIGHT.
For those who rush off too soon, the wound will remain once again, unattended and fester further. We are sadly not taught to do this properly, but it has become a very Western Culture process to skip it all, put on a smile as if you can bless the whole thing and let it go, but this simply prolongs the healing and the wound again goes unattended, all that pain for naught. LISTEN to your heart song. Listen to that Cardinal Canary who sings longingly to you to appreciate the MUSE, the music of the soul.
Pluto will go direct at 11* on September 23rd and pass that critical 13* Point, after once  again forming into the square to Uranus on December 14th at 12* and Mars will be forming the square to his position in Libra then at 6*, ready to move into place for the Cardinal square that will form at the end of the month, with the sun in Capricorn too. On the 21st, Mars will hit exact on the 12* mark and meet up with Pluto and on the 22nd, he will CROSS OVER his 13* of Capricorn square to his position in the Grand Cardinal Cross. On December 29th, the moon will rendezvous with Uranus at the 13* mark again and the sun will be heading into full connection with URanus to put the whole thing into another spin. Expect the bubbling lava of Mars to come up then, and if you have not properly tended to those wounds now….well. The agony in the garden won't just be an allegory.
The reason I Am not just painting rainbows and dazzling the stars in the moonlight, is because some people, will most acutely be affected, and I don't want them to feel like they are doing something wrong, and also that it is a 'time that will pass'. If you are feeling stronger, than please, spread your wings and comfort those who feel very much as if they are on the cross. Would you tell someone who was bleeding to death to just get up and get over it? YES, some people will do the abominable thing they always do, blaspheme the WORD, or take advantage of others by claiming 'poor me' as just another excuse to get attention. Woe to those who cause suffering for their own sake.  
These are critical times, so please, if you can be kind…be kind. If you are suffering, it isn't just in your head, take head and nurture and heal those wounds.Greater things that these shall you do, once you recover and find your inner light. Than shall you take that light and light up the world. For the reason they are ILLUMINATED MANUSCRIPTS, as in the Kell bible, is because it is ILLUMINATING, it is not to be overlooked or simply 'to get over', but a doorway to GO THROUGH.
Fly like an eagle, till your free, fly like an eagle let your spirit carry thee.

Grand Cardinal Cross April 21 2014


Welcome to the Grand Cardinal Cross. I have written quite a bit on this already, starting with in 2012 and many blogs about Pluto In Capricorn, or you could start here:
http://arcoftheancients.blogspot.com/search?updated-min=2013-01-01T00:00:00-08:00&updated-max=2014-01-01T00:00:00-08:00&max-results=29

Or here, Circle gets the Cardinal Square:

http://arcoftheancients.blogspot.com/2013_08_01_archive.html

OR here: http://arcoftheancients.blogspot.com/2014_01_01_archive.html Or here:http://arcoftheancients.blogspot.com/2014/01/this-is-end-of-beginning.html

Or the previous post about the Blood Moon, which starts the series of 4 Blood Moons.
What I will briefly recap here is that if you are one of the Cardinal Signs in the degrees between: 11-15 and that is: Aries, Cancer, Libra and Capricorn or with planets or aspects in those degrees and signs, you will be the most strongly affected.
Especially, if you are at the critical degree of 13* in any one of those signs.
Then you are literally 'On the Cross' and that is crucial, especially when you think of what this time represents, as I described in the last post on the Blood Moon, Passover and of course Easter.
Jesus, which means 'Saviour' was hung on Good Friday and rose three days later, which is actually Monday, not Sunday...Sun day would represent the Sun, but Monday, represents the MOON.
That is TODAY!
So the Cross forms exact today at 12:27PM EDT.
Yesterday I actually moved a branch which was from a thorn bush, and yes, I was stuck with a thorn which lodged a piece of itself inside my middle finger on my right hand. Now those of you who know what the fingers represent in Ayurvedic medicine or Polarity, would know that is a fire finger and the right hand would be the male aspect of moving forward.
I won't go into that any further, because the main point is actually that it was a thorn.
There is a sacrifice, a blood-letting...to release the past. Giving birth to your own Saviour.
Being crucified is no picnic, it means you are alone and being offered up as a LAMB.
This ushers in the fecundity of spring and new growth, the blossoming of seeds planted long ago, perhaps lifetimes ago, that were long dormant.
Birth is not an easy time, there is BLOOD and the flow of water...and then there is NEW LIFE.
All life comes from a wounding, and that is of course painful.
I will add right now, that the opposition between Jupiter in Cancer to Pluto in Capricorn may bring further antagonism of the people to governments and authority.
That may splash itself across the world stage from several areas, as people become more and more discouraged with the leadership that they feel may not have their own best interests at heart.  It certainly may also happen here in the states.

Major political actions and seeds will also be set into motion, and with the retrograde planets,
especially a whole stellium starting with Mars, then Ceres and the North Node in Libra (balance and partnership, peace, harmony leading into Saturn, also still retrograde in Scorpio; what we have is a lot of clandestine operations, things being done on the sly and everything is not up front.
Neptune still ruling the skies in PIsces will make a lot of people who are vulnerable to her ILLUSIONS make decisions that are based on wishful thinking, the seduction of Poseidon is legendary, so please be careful.

I will return to write more about all of this, you can be sure.


I Pray for all of us to lift up our hearts, as the birth happens within us all, to bring another level of awareness, please be kind and don’t be seduced into the material world, with Libra all retrograde, fairness unfortunately may be thrown out for the illusion of success in the material world, and Mercury in headstrong Aries, may cause rash decisions on to of all of it, while the sun is in the stubborn fixed sign of the Bull.
What are priorities?  Remember those who have toiled and blazed the trail before you, respect is part of consideration that could help lead you down the right road.
Mars in Libra retrograde, opposing Uranus in Aries will bring those impulsive actions that YOU WILL REGRET.   Mars/Ares is playing trickster with Mercury/Hermes having recently paired up with him, what they stir up is a whole lot of trouble, so BE WARE!

PLEASE RECALL WE ARE IN OPPOSITIONS AND SQUARES, YOU CAN BUILD UPON THEM, BUT THIS IS TIME TO PREPARE AND SET A FOUNDATION, WAIT UNTIL MARS GOES DIRECT ON MAY 20th!

All that glitters is not gold.

All that glitters is not gold.

Now, let us take a deeper look at Pluto/Hades again and consider these aspects and their implications.  Pluto/Hades was awarded the domain of the underground, where he is lord and master.  Cerberus, the three-headed dog is the guardian at the gates of his domain.  He wrestled (raped) Demeter’s daughter Persephone, whereupon he was granted her as consort for 3 months a year (winter) but he was not allowed to keep her every day of the year.  
Without writing an entire Homeric piece, that will give you a little bit background with which to draw upon during this time, where he plays such a pivotal role, albeit for a short time (again).


Pluto is the god of buried treasure and the ruler of Scorpio and the 8th house.
He rules sex, drugs and rock n roll, death and taxes.  (The two things we know for sure about living).  Most of all, we should remind ourselves that Hades is POWER!  He is travelling through the aegis of Capricorn right now.  Capricorn the goat (as elaborated more fully in previous posts right here on this blog), rules from the pinnacle, as the goat; is the magician of climbing up the craggy cliffs of both mountains and life.

So, if we consider just those aspects, what we see is the ruler of the deep underground, finding his way to the top of the mountain, from the unseen worlds using his POWER OF TRANSFORMATION to make his way to the very top of the VERY VISIBLE MOUNTAIN TOP.  Saturn/El who is the ruler of Capricorn and TIME as Cronus, is also the ruler of the EL-ite, the EL-ect, or the rulers of this world that are quite visible.  In this one aspect of the whole Cardinal Cross, made up of all of the squares.
The ruling POWER comes from the deep to transform the ruling power on the planet.  This is the phoenix aspect, the snake that sheds his skin to become the new version OF THE SAME ANIMAL.   This is the most pivotal time of this Grand Cardinal Cross, since it is at the critical degree of 13.  We shall see some shift of power, some perception of a newer version or alliance that forms the governments, or what boundaries, rulership, or assemblage will have the visible axis of power.

When we consider the ‘As Above, So Below’ aspect of this, we take the personal ramifications of this very clearly to mean our own transformation, that will be represented on a ‘collective’ level, which is represented by URanus in Aries, which is one of the handles on the CROSS, forming the square to Pluto/Hades.  Ares/Mars is the warrior/militant and URanus is the group, but it is also Lightening, sudden change and brilliance.  Since we have Ares/Mars retrograde in Libra, his passive/aggressive tendencies, will be propelled through the individual and into the world stage.  This makes for rash decisions.
Now, let us return to Hades as the ruler of Scorpio; represented by three different images: The eagle, the snake and of course the scorpion.
Much has been made of Ophiuchus as of late; who is the ‘serpent bearer or handler’.  He stands in the heavens between Scorpio and Sagittarius.  If we see that Scorpio is both the Eagle and the serpent, we know that the Eagle handles the serpent in his talons and can fly above the clouds and storms of life in this aspect of Scorpio.  The snake will shed his skin and transform himself over and over with many lives.  He crawls on his belly and INTO THE UNDERGROUND WORLD OF HADES.  We are told that it was a serpent that whispered into Eve’s ear and seduced her into EATING FROM THE TREE OF KNOWLEDGE.
The first question we can ask on a personal level might be: “Where do you hold personal power in your life?”  Do you take responsibility with your own actions, directions in life or do you give up your own power as the victim?  Do you blame the government (Saturn as rulership of Capricorn along with Jupiter as Zeus, king of kings in the 9th house of world dominion)?
Saturn is responsibility (Now retrograde in Scorpio) and in mutual reception with Pluto in Capricorn.  So, how have you managed your own affairs, your life?  Have you taken responsibility in your own life; to bring you the freedoms awarded ‘time management’.
Okay, now on the world stage, many things have and are being negotiated behind the scenes and will soon take shape in the form of some revealing, how we participate within this transformation will be reflected by the group (URanus in Aries) and must be an incorporation of brilliance/genius using new ideas and forward thoughts of technological insights, but in a square to Jupiter/Zeus in Cancer, also must take into consideration the earth/mother in which we live.
We do not have infinite re SOURCES.
So, Mars/Ares in Libra the scales/partnerships will require (And we will be shown some new version of this) creating and taking action forward with consideration of new partnerships.  This will show itself when Mars goes direct on May 20th. (Or sometime shortly thereafter) when Mars stations direct at 9* of Libra.  (Take this into consideration all of you with planets and aspects at this degree or 7-12 degrees of the cardinal signs).
We also have Saturn still retrograde in Scorpio at 21* (And Saturn will be at the anoretic 29* of Scorpio, trying to finish up his journey of re-building when we have the next Uranus square to Pluto on December 14th at the end of this year) will station direct at 16* of Scorpio on July 21st of this year.  At that time, we can expect the new structure to more fully emerge, both on a personal level and on the world stage.  This will ultimately be reconfigured in the next two squares of Pluto and URanus, but we should see some new forms of the world powers emerge onto the stage.
Does this mean war on some level?  It very well could mean this, since the powers are battling for domain over the resources and accesses to those resources on this planet.  Who rules those resources?  Pluto/Hades rules those resources.
Ask yourself this question: Have you transformed some of your more base instincts, selfish and lower aspects into a more golden and higher evolution (see how PLUTO/Hades rules all of these, he is the planet of evolution, see Jeff Greene’s work on both Pluto and Mars for further research) and if you have, the greater the force in the collective will be.
Let us for once and for all, demolish the foolish proposition that aliens came from somewhere millions of light years away and wanted the gold on planet earth.  Now, they somehow took just enough power, to force the humans to mine the gold, using us for slave labor, but then they did not take all of the gold, being that they were so considerate and all.
Humans want gold and greed and power.  Humans are seduced into the shining brilliance that represents the sun, the AU, to adorn themselves and DISPLAY THEIR OWN POWER AND POSITION.  Anyone want a gold toilet?
What humans will do, to fight for the rights, for the ownership of this gold, reveals their character and the weaknesses of the individual, the perforations of the integrity and the lower natures de-SIRE for false illusions.  There is no conscious evolution without the ability to consider the needs of others; this is the role of compassion.
Who can navigate the underbelly of excess and power?
Mercury/Hermes the trickster crosses the RIVER STYX AND is friends with Cerberus. 
Communication, travel, and he is the guardian, the ruler of the CROSSROADS.
He too is in Aries right now at 26*, so a bit head-strong perhaps, but willing to lead (hopefully not MARTIALLING HIS EFFORTS) finishing up this journey and soon to enter Taurus on April 24th.  Will you go down and meet him at the CROSSROADS?  In the body, Mercury rules the throat, arms and hands, communication and hearing.  It is the CORE of the body along with Saturn ruling the spinal column.
We are in the middle of a major shift of CORE beliefs, how they are communicated and indeed, how we communicate on this planet.  More and more people are experiencing the more subtle communication fields, ESP, intuition and this should continue.  He is the colour Blue, and Robert Johnson became a master of the blues after he met old PAPA Legba at the Crossroads.
We are in the middle of a CARDINAL GRAND CROSS; these are the crossroads of our time, (Saturn/EL) of YOUR time.  Does anyone really know what time it is?
 Where is your power?  Are you a victim or the victor?  How do you manage your TIME AND TAKE RESPONSIBILITY FOR YOUR ACTIONS?  What old skin will you shed, to emerge into a higher form of conscious?  Leave behind what does not work for you, and rise up out of the ashes, be reborn in your Christed/Saviour self, and SAVE YOURSELF!  THIS IS THE BLOOD OF THE NEW AND EVERLASTING COVENANT YOU ARE MAKING WITH THE UNIVERSE.
Take the A train.


It is a trans FORM-AT-ION, that is taking place, an alchemy of the SOUL of our planet.

This will be a quick post, during a Mercury Retrograde.  We are now in the year of the horse, and the following are some clues as to the signs of the times.

On SUN –day, January 26th, Katie Perry sang her hit song, ‘Dark Horse’ on one of the most watched television shows of the year.

This was followed by the Chinese year of the horse, which began on Feb 1, 2014.

On February 2, the 33rd day of the year, we watched the news of actor Philip Hoffman’s much publicized death ~ his name means ‘fond of horses’.

Philip died using heroin, which is also known as horse.  Ever been through the desert on a ‘horse with no name, it feels good to get out from the rain’?

His death was on Imbolc Feb 2, the 2nd day of the 2nd month, according the Gregorian calendar. (Which is 22, and why Psalm 22 relates again to this time frame.)

It was also the day of the ‘Super Bowl’ between the Seattle ‘Sea’-‘HAWKS’ and the Denver ‘BRONCOS’ (The Bronco being the bucking horse), and the horse got his but whipped.

During half-time, Bruno ‘MARS’ played under flashing pyramids.  (Much more symbology can be found, but I will leave that to other sites) the mention is only to point out that Mars, is the ruler of WAR and ‘HAWKS’ are the well-known aspect of the war mongers in government.

Now we come to the four horses of the Apocalypse, which as readers of the first chapter of my book will know, means ‘a revealing’, thus the name ~ Revelations.

I can’t help myself but to look around and seek the clues the universe provides to give us an overview of things to come, a forecast.

Revelation 6

King James Version (KJV)

6 And I saw when the Lamb opened one of the seals, and I heard, as it were the noise of thunder, one of the four beasts saying, Come and see.

2 And I saw, and behold a white horse: and he that sat on him had a bow; and a crown was given unto him: and he went forth conquering, and to conquer. (1st horse) Cancer/Crab/MOON.

3 And when he had opened the second seal, I heard the second beast say, Come and see.

4 And there went out another horse that was red: and power was given to him that sat thereon to take peace from the earth, and that they should kill one another: and there was given unto him a great sword. (ARIES/MARS) 2nd horse

5 And when he had opened the third seal, I heard the third beast say, Come and see. And I beheld, and lo a black horse; and he that sat on him had a pair of balances in his hand. (LIBRA) Venus (3rd horse)

6 And I heard a voice in the midst of the four beasts say, A measure of wheat for a penny, and three measures of barley for a penny; and see thou hurt not the oil and the wine.

7 And when he had opened the fourth seal, I heard the voice of the fourth beast say, come and see.

8 And I looked, and behold a pale horse: and his name that sat on him was Death, and Hell followed with him. And power was given unto them over the fourth part of the earth, to kill with sword, and with hunger, and with death, and with the beasts of the earth. (Death/Saturn/Capricorn)

9 And when he had opened the fifth seal, I saw under the altar the souls of them that were slain for the word of God, and for the testimony which they held:

10 And they cried with a loud voice, saying, how long, O Lord, holy and true, dost thou not judge and avenge our blood on them that dwell on the earth?

11 And white robes were given unto every one of them; and it was said unto them, that they should rest yet for a little season, until their fellow servants also and their brethren, that should be killed as they were, should be fulfilled.

12 And I beheld when he had opened the sixth seal, and, lo, there was a great earthquake; and the sun became black as sackcloth of hair, and the moon became as blood;

(There will be four ‘blood-moons’ starting in April/Passover of this year and ending in April of the next. ~editor’s note)

13 And the stars of heaven fell unto the earth, even as a fig tree casteth her untimely figs, when she is shaken of a mighty wind.

14 And the heaven departed as a scroll when it is rolled together; and every mountain and island were moved out of their places.

15 And the kings of the earth, and the great men, and the rich men, and the chief captains, and the mighty men, and every bondman, and every free man, hid themselves in the dens and in the rocks of the mountains;

16 And said to the mountains and rocks, Fall on us, and hide us from the face of him that sitteth on the throne, and from the wrath of the Lamb:

17 For the great day of his wrath is come; and who shall be able to stand?

One of the commercials during the Super Bowl was for, the Maserati Ghibli.  The Maserati symbol is the symbol for the Roman God, Neptune, who is given credit for creating the horse.  (Greek/Poseidon) Indeed, the symbol for the Charioteer Card in the Tarot is the mastering of the forces of nature, harnessing the duality depicted as white and black horses under the canopy of the stars.

This is also representative of our mind, and our ability to control the forces of our deeply emotional limbic system, of which the ‘Hippocampus’ is a part, and literally translates to `Sea-Horse’.

Ghibli is a noun, whose origin means: ‘a hot dust-bearing wind of the North African desert’.

The commercial, which has very dark overtones, tells us to: ‘Strike while the Giants are sleeping’  What giants might they be?


Now to return to revelations and the ‘four’ horses; though there are many layers of interpretations here, I will mention a few:  First, the four represent the ‘Cardinal directions’ and the four EL-ements.  (I will finish up my long promised treatise on Saturn and you will find it on this blog for a deeper explanation on Saturn.)

I will only add now for the added awareness of the reader, that Saturn is EL of the Old Testament, and this is why the Sabbath is on ‘Saturn’s Day’, more commonly known as Saturday.  He is also the EL of Egyptian god lore.  EL-ement then, becomes God-Mind, and the four elements, are simply the four powers/directions of the God-Mind.

This brings us to the obvious relationship of the four horses of the apocalypse, to the four directions (El-ements) and the wrath of God.

To continue, we are experiencing the world-shaking effects of UR-Anus (hEAven) which is in Aries, square to Pluto/Hades (hELl) which is in Capricorn.  As these cardinal squares form (The cardinal signs are: Aries/Mars, Cancer/Moon, Libra/Venus, Capricorn/Saturn) they also at times form what is known as the Cardinal Cross (SEE previous post for larger diagram) when other transiting planets or heavenly bodies are journeying in the other two cardinal signs, Cancer and Libra, which Jupiter/Zeus and Mars/Ares are now in respectively.

I have written quite a bit about this Cardinal Square and the Crosses in previous posts, but they are worth revealing further and deeper layers as we proceed through this time frame.

Readers familiar with previous posts already know that those who have planets in the cardinal signs, especially within the degrees of: 7-15 now, are experiencing major life transitions, some will push you into your greater self quickly, some will simply feel excruciating and devastating.

I know, I have a 13* Libra sun and 15* Mercury in the Twelfth house of my natal chart.

The horse/wood/yang years in the past have portended war and we can hope and pray that does not bring China and Japan to blows.

We also can expect from all the aforementioned: that this excess of fire stoked up by the wood year, may portend disasters of the volcanic variety (Mars and Pluto square) as well as further war auguring by the Hawks, electrical explosions that will bring power disruptions and worse, could be some earth shaking quakes and subsequent water displacement.

We are already experiencing one of the most difficult winter seasons in the states, and the rest of the planet is also under siege by heat, snow, fires and water deluge or the opposite, drought.

So, is the horse itself evil, or shall we overcome this more sinister display with more positive images?  The horse needs freedom to be happy, but they also like to be brushed and loved.  Can we keep from having a stampede?  Let’s hope so.

The Blood Moon Dance Into Fullness April 15, 2014

On Tuesday, April 15th, in the early morning hours at 3:45AM- EDT, we will head into the first of the 4 Blood Moons, with an eclipse at 25* of Libra, while the sun is in the other HOT sign at 25* of Aries the Ram, after having just ignited Uranus now conjunct with Mercury/Hermes, who sits on one of the handles of this Cardinal Cross now in position at the critical 13 degrees.

This eclipse will be visible over most of the America’s, so we will be greatly affected and eclipse energy lasts for 28 days, but this one is a capstone of sorts, that will trigger a pattern unfolding throughout the rest of this year and into 2015.

Before I get into what this all means, let me back up a minute.

On Monday, Lady Luna will do a little dancing with Mars/Ares who  is at 16* of Libra/Aphrodite (the scales of justice and balance) fusing emotional medicine into the passions of Ares/Mars, who is still retrograde.  On that day, as we see the eruptions all over the planet building and the tensions of this cross mounting…expect that trigger moment to be another fuse…She will then meet up with Ceres (goddess of agriculture, grain crops, fertility and motherly relationships. There is a seven-day festival in April called Cerealia…think cereal).

They want JUSTICE!  They are united in their opposition to the SUN which recently crossed over that critical 13 degree divot too, on April 3rd.  Mars/Ares (action, desire) is still retrograde AND in Libra/Scales/Aphrodite (Justice, partnership, what we love) he is in his fall, so his energy is being wound up like a watch-spring, and as mentioned in previous posts; not only is this bringing up issues of how we love and who we loved from our past, but will bring up regressive/passive aggressive tendencies.

We are already seeing the effects of these dynamics, as people lose their minds and act out violently.  Walk and talk carefully, we cannot turn back the hands of time or take back hurtful words that will cut to the quick.

The other night, I had another one of a series of dreams/lessons regarding the CORE and electromagnetism.  Indeed, these heavenly bodies are pulling on Gaia’s magnetic field, the core shifts and I am being taught that our own electromagnetic energy field can slip too.  This also affects the limbic system and the myelin sheath that surrounds the nerves, thus we have people acting as if they have slipped a gear, they are not connected to their own core, and there may be an actual laps in time as memory is strongly affected by this too.
So again, I implore you to make sure you are using ArcAncient’s Sleep Angel both to get a good night’s sleep and with a little dab on the soles of the feet to ground to the earth’s core during the day.  www.arcancient.com

Lady Luna conjunct Ceres and accessing Mars/Ares energy will ignite fiery passions and emotional outbursts, as well as further outbursts from our own mother earth right now.  It may bring forth professions of deep feelings that have been welled up, and for those who are not so comfortable sharing feelings, we may see the sling-shot effect, as emotions and true feelings come flying out.

All of this, is ignited in the opposition to our solar fire in the center of the galaxy, who has just moved past his connection to both UR-Anus (change/groups/innovation and former God of the Sky) who is now coupling exactly with Mercury/Hermes (communication, travel, small instruments) and URAnus is the higher octave of Mercury, so banded together at 13* of Aries the RAM (As in Abram and the Lamb of God) we have the communication travelling at light speed; Incendiary aspects to say the least.  Anyone on the Cardinal Cross may find themselves feeling very nervous energy buzzing inside of them, wanting to simply bolt and run.



I expect to see some very profound revelations on the scientific front, with advances that will truly be earth shattering.  I also expect to hear some information regarding some new political constructs, which will come in the form of an address or release from the White House.


Saturn still retrograde in Scorpio is forming support even as he twirks the mirky waters of sexual devolution and the secrets come spilling out across the front pages; and the water signs are finding new sea legs, even Cancer is getting some support from Saturn and Jupiter now retrograde in Cancer.

As the eclipse forms, the earth (us) will stand between the sun and the moon, and the sun will cast its light upon the moon in such a way, as to cast a reddish hue upon her luminating surface.  She will darken as we see apart, or separate the male and the female EL-ements in this grand act of occlusion. 

LaLuna will also be pairing up with the dragon’s head, the north node also in Libra at 28* and this is our spiritual calling; our own personal eye of the needle that we must pass through. 

So, it is our emotional and intuitive guidance that will be energized and activated perhaps even as a whisper from our own spiritual Core being, the reason we are incarnated as the beings we came to be in this life.  We will stand up against the lower nature of our ego, and listen to the high-wire act of Hermes and URAnus as they open up the truths within us that have been secreted away.  WHY ARE YOU HERE?

The SKELETON KEY to the house with many mansions, is Chiron the wounded healer who is hanging out with Venus/Aphrodite and Neptune/Poseidon (dreams/art/visions) in PIsces.  Neptune/Poseidon has been pouring the elixir into our starry nights as she rules the heavens in her own home of PIsces.  She opens up the Holiest of Holies, the power of the Holy Spirit and we as the Charioteers must gather our reigns with the inventor of the horse/Poseidon, as we go deep sea diving into the depths of the minds ocean we find our own sea horses in hippocampus.

Wake them up, and fasten them to your cart, as our spiritual consort opens up the deep wounds that trace back through aeons and lifetimes in the Silence of the Lambs.

For this is after all, the high holy week of Passover.

Pharaoh as we recall, would not relent to Moses’s requests to ‘Let my people go’.

This begins in Exodus: “and Aaron thy brother shall speak unto Pharaoh, that he send the children of Israel out of his land. 3 And I will harden Pharaoh's heart, and multiply my signs and my wonders in the land of Egypt.”

          …isn’t this a curious line? “And I will harden Pharaoh's heart

And we continue here: 4 But Pharaoh shall not hearken unto you, that I may lay my hand upon Egypt, and bring forth mine armies, and my people the children of Israel, out of the land of Egypt by great judgments. 5And the Egyptians shall know that I am the LORD, when I stretch forth mine hand upon Egypt, and bring out the children of Israel from among them.

10And Moses and Aaron went in unto Pharaoh, and they did so as the LORD had commanded: and Aaron cast down his rod before Pharaoh, and before his servants, and it became a serpent. 11Then Pharaoh also called the wise men and the sorcerers: now the magicians of Egypt, they also did in like manner with their enchantments. 12For they cast down every man his rod, and they became serpents: but Aaron's rod swallowed up their rods. (ate their serpents) 13And he hardened Pharaoh's heart, that he hearkened not unto them; as the LORD had said.

A true leader, is a BRAVE-HEART, his heart is not hardened.  True leaders will rise up now, as those whose hearts have hardened, will surely feel the blood of the Lamb who returns like a LION, the fiery water of the Holy Spirit.

LET this ignite your passion, your inner heart’s fire to burn brightly in the dark nights that stalk the planet with soulless beings, void of this deep heart connection.
YOU did not come here to copy someone, but to become your individual divine light.

We must be wise as serpents (the ones who eat those of a lesser god) and gentle as doves.

We must trample the lion and the adder, and with our egos properly harnessed to fuel the fires of the Divine Mind, move forward bravely into healing this world of its disconnection.

The LORD God of the Hebrews hath sent me unto thee, saying, Let my people go, that they may serve me in the wilderness: and, behold, hitherto thou wouldest not hear. 17Thus saith the LORD, In this thou shalt know that I am the LORD: behold, I will smite with the rod that is in mine hand upon the waters which are in the river, and they shall be turned to blood

4And Moses said, Thus saith the LORD, About midnight will I go out into the midst of Egypt: 5And all the firstborn in the land of Egypt shall die, from the firstborn of Pharaoh that sitteth upon his throne, even unto the firstborn of the maidservant that is behind the mill; and all the firstborn of beasts.

2This month shall be unto you the beginning of months: it shall be the first month of the year to you. 3Speak ye unto all the congregation of Israel, saying, In the tenth day of this month they shall take to them every man a lamb, according to the house of their fathers, a lamb for an house:

          7And they shall take of the blood, and strike it on the two side posts and on the upper door post of the houses, wherein they shall eat it.

          it is the LORD'S Passover. 12For I will pass through the land of Egypt this night, and will smite all the firstborn in the land of Egypt, both man and beast; and against all the gods of Egypt I will execute judgment: I am the LORD.

Now, we have Jeshua, who as the lamb became the innocent offering up the LORD, so that sins may be forgiven.

Recall as the THREE were hanging on their CROSSES, on Golgotha, that one repented and Jesus said unto him: “I will see you in my father’s house this day” but the other, refused to repent, to show contrition…

So, find some humility, the pressure of the full blood moon will be intense, especially for the cardinal signs: Aries, Cancer, Libra and Capricorn and even more so with planets between the degrees of 11-15.  Also for those degrees of the actual eclipse: 24-27*.
As the lamb is sacrificed, leaving behind the shell of His earthly body, so too, will we leave behind the shell of our worn out belief’s, and the concepts and constructs that have held us prisoner, keeping us from our own higher order and the world that is waiting for our own BRAVE-HEART, find your own lion or lioness, your inner light and bring it out, for as this full moon begins to wane into the Cardinal Cross on the 21
st
, we will feel the lashes taught and break, snapping off of the bows as the wooden vessel creeks and lurches, no longer able to hold the untruth, the lie of not living who we are. 
People will go mad living a lie.  Integrity is key, hold on to the truth that will set you free.

The earth will crack and moan too, and for as long as we hold onto pressures that strain under the weight of truth, the bare necessity of living real authentic lives that are not dictated by the excesses of commercialism, (represented in part by the serpents, either use your staff, or become consumed) we are the earth, WE are convulsing under the excesses of living the false self.

WHO ARE YOU?

WHY ARE YOU HERE?

Turn your wheel into the wind of your heart, just that one degree of true north will find you in the valley of the gods when we come out on the other side.

Fasten your seatbelts, it is going to be a bumpy ride, but it will be a thriller!
