The Virus, China, and the Eclipses – an Astrological Perspective

6 Mar

Sooo – an omnipresent, all pervasive concern these days… 

I felt called to explore the Corona Virus situation astrologically – when it comes to the present micro-macro cosmic ‘Zeitgeist’ on Planet Earth, and in relation to China.
SEVEN factors presented themselves that shed light & perspective on the situation:

 

  1. Micro / macro meaning of ‘Corona’.
    …and is it pure coincidence that an annular ‘Ring of Fire’ Solar Eclipse happened just weeks after the presumed outbreak, and just days after China reported???
  2. The role of the SATURN – PLUTO transit in CAP on Jan 12
  3. Chinese New Year of the Metal RAT, started Jan 25 – what’s the relevance?
  4. Huge PISCES wave, incl MERCURY retro, and SUN – NEPTUNE, Feb to mid-March
  5. Culmination with the Full Moon in VIRGO – PISCES (with NEPTUNE), on March 9, and resolution thereafter?
  6. The Role of SATURN going into AQ on March 21, for its first phase (until July 1)
  7. Astrological transits for China, 2020 and beyond

 

Micro / Macro Meaning of ‘Corona’ 

…and is it pure coincidence that an annular ‘Ring of Fire’ Solar Eclipse happened just weeks after the presumed outbreak, and just days after China reported???

Last week, when I consulted Wiki re: meaning and origin of the name Corona Virus, I was stunned to find:
“The name “coronavirus” is derived from the Latin corona and the Greek κορώνη (korṓnē, “garland, wreath”), meaning crown or halo. The name refers to the characteristic appearance of virions (the infective form of the virus) by electron microscopy, which have a fringe of large, bulbous surface projections creating an image reminiscent of a crown or of a solar corona.”

Here we go – the micro virus and the macro Eclipse have an appearance in common that gave them the same name!

‘Incidentally’, very close to the suspected outbreak of the new Corona Virus strand (first known infection Dec 1 – however it took the Chinese Govt until Dec 31 to report the virus to the WHO!), there was a ‘Ring of Fire’ Annular Solar Eclipse on Dec 25 / 26, with its path going over the Arabic Peninsula, Southern India, and South East Asia.
In China, it was a partial Eclipse.

China has been criticized for cover-ups and downplaying the initial discovery and severity of the outbreak.
That sounds very much like the shadow of SATURN (fear inducing hierarchical authority – vs. responsibility) & PLUTO (control / abuse of power / cover-up / repression) – the two Planets were about to align on Jan 12
(only every 36 – 37 years). And it sounds like the shadow of CAP (rigid top-down authority of the ‘old empire model’) – which has been coming out with the Eclipses of Dec 25 / 26 and of Jan 10 / 11 (visible in all of Europe, most of Africa, and all of Asia.

Quote from my ‘Ring of Fire’ Annular Solar Eclipse in early CAP blog post:
“The Old Empire is expiring, as it’s unsustainable
(a critical CAP question) and has shown ample evidence (Saturn) for its (self)destructive (Pluto) potential.
As an Annular Solar Eclipse, the MOON almost completely covers the SUN disk, reduced to a fiery ring ‘behind’ the MOON. Symbolically, the Yin / Female / Lunar quality steps in front of the Yang / Masculine / Solar to create a temporary darkening effect.
A light switch in consciousness.”

In a country, the MOON represents in trad. Astrology the People, and the SUN the Government.
All the affected and even killed people by the virus eclipse / cast quite a dark shadow on the Chinese Government, which – after the delayed (YES, CAP requires responsibility in a timely manner) reporting – took extreme & rigid measures to prevent further spreading. Lock-down, quarantine, hefty controls – all expressions of SATURN – PLUTO in CAP. Other countries followed in their own ways of trying to control the pandemic and protect their citizens, some also with bans and restrictions.

However the progress / resolution of the virus situation will be, question is, as SATURN – PLUTO started a new cycle:
Is this the beginning of more rigid state / governmental / global institutional control – some fear Orwellian scenarios – or is it a wake-up call for Humanity to reclaim intrinsic authority and power? 
Let’s aspire to and embody the latter. Of course that doesn’t just come ‘automatically’. It requires from us to be in soulful integrity wherever possible. And it’s work in progress.

 

The Role of the SATURN – PLUTO Transit in CAP on Jan 12

Yes, the CANCER – multi-CAP Lunar Eclipse catalyzed the Epic Alignment of SATURN & PLUTO on Jan 12!
Indicating: The Old Empire Expires – and with it, the release of an old and initiation into an New Era.
See my blog post from Jan 9.

Plus, URANUS was early-mid Jan also in the picture, as it turned from retro to direct on the Lunar Eclipse DAY, Jan 10.
A very URANian (exciting, electric, shocking, unpredictable,  wake-up calls, liberating) phase it’s been indeed.
And it started a 5-week period where NO Planet was retro (until MERCURY turned retro on Feb 16), and things (incl. viruses, news, fear…) could move forward and manifest in the outer World much faster – for better or worse…

 

Now check the Eclipse chart in comparison with the chart of China (Oct 1, 1949 at 15:15 in Beijing)!

The massive Eclipse Stellium of SUN, MERCURY, SATURN & PLUTO, between 20 – 23º CAP were exactly conjunct China’s JUPITER at 22º35′ CAP in the 12th House.
What’s the hidden-in-plain-sight (12th House) Truth (JUPITER) here?
Where does the virus really come from, and why did it take China so long to report this big pervasive issue?
Did it ‘escape’ from a high security bio-chemical lab in Wuhan, as rumours have it?
What do we know? Says also MERCURY retro in PI where information is super fuzzy / messy /confusing / paradoxical.
In any case, a big concerted effort (JUPITER in CAP) needed now to deal with this issue.

More about the Astrology for China below.

Back to the SATURN – PLUTO conjunction.
The alignment comes every 36 – 38 years only.
This time in SATURN’s home sign CAP (last time there in 1518 – the start of the Reformation, initiated by Martin Luther who accused the Church institution being out of integrity with its foundation – the Bible), a historic turning point.
This alignment, shows also the evidence / reality (SATURN) of Power (PLUTO), and the shadow / hidden / repressed agenda (PLUTO) of governments and hierarchical structures everywhere – in this case, in their response to the virus.
And it’s about hidden / core (PLUTO) fears (SATURN). Something hidden / invisible (PLUTO) – the virus – can have a whole chain reaction of effects (SATURN).

With SATURN – PLUTO, it can get intense as things come to an end.

The Astro Medicine of healing like with like: 
To strengthen our Power centre (PLUTO) and our ‘immune system’ / boundaries (SATURN) when it comes to the virus of fear – the most contagious of them all.
Yet also to be practical and have a healthy common sense protocol, and responsibility (SATURN).

In terms of the 36 – 38 year cycle of SATURN – PLUTO:
The last conjunction was in 1982-83 end of LIBRA.
Well, it was the time when the AIDS / HIV virus broke out.
End of LIBRA – leaning over to SCO has to do with relationships / intimacy. What an impact! Relationships & sex seemed to be never the same / forever changed thereafter.
Thankfully, treatment & survival rates are improving in the meantime, of course.

This is not to say, the Corona Virus Covid-19 will have as massive effects as AIDS / HIV.
But the SATURN – PLUTO Zeitgeist shows the fear of dying an untimely death from something out of control (is it ever?) that governments and other institutions ‘should’ protect is from (CAP) is massive now.

Again, the radical notion to be self responsible (SATURN) and empowered (PLUTO), and explore deeper where our fears (SATURN) are rooted, and what THE core fear (PLUTO-SATURN) is – can be an empowering turning point (PLUTO).

In the meantime, MARS has entered CAP (on Feb 16), and will cross JUPITER & PLUTO on March 20 / 22, and SATURN (by then in early AQ) on March 31.
The end of March / in first days of Spring, there’s lots of energy to help with acting on understanding – even though it’s a high call / big task, which can transform a situation tremendously. Previously perceived blocks and fears that held us back can be overcome with collaboration.
May the Martian energy help with moving the situation forward, and bring new overall vitality.

 

Chinese New Year of the Metal RAT, started Jan 25 – what’s the relevance?

Well, the outbreak started in December – possibly in November 2019 if not before –  still in the Year of the Earth PIG – the last year of the Chinese Animal Circle.

Which was another year with strong pleasure, indulgence & convenience focus – speaking of the privileged world – in stark contrast with war zones and countries where all the ‘toys’ are being produced, often under inhumane, abusive conditions – as in China itself.

The SCORPIOnic quality of the PIG to become aware of the shadow and dark side of things was certainly also ON globally, esp. re: media deception, climate crisis, etc. Truly overwhelming… at the end of the cycle with PIG.

What I said in the CNY blog can be seen in a new light now:

“… But hey, literally, our indulgence and more more more consumerism, driven by the economy that’s catering to ‘convenience’ and manipulating personal egos, and with the big trail of waste production & disposal leaves a legacy that shows: Pigs are way cleaner animals than humans.

Let’s clean up our act, and step out of the consumer pig sty! SATURN / PLUTO in CAP agree: Can’t go on like this. Off to a suicide mission for humans and other species on Mother EARTH otherwise.

Let’s contribute to consciousness in action, as in fulfillment in simplicity.
Less is more (says also JUPITER now in CAP) so that the ship can be turned around.
Otherwise, the RATs are the first to desert the sinking ship….”

Yep – so much wasteful consumer production (manufactured under detrimental conditions for humans and nature) is coming out of China nowadays… and so many goods now in general that the world economy depends upon – ever since China has become a major economic power – roughly coinciding with PLUTO entering CAP (2008 / 2009, still on until 2023), following the globalization under PLUTO in SAG (1995 – 2008).
Wondering whether the impact of the virus will be a ‘Ground Zero’ for China – as the WTC attacks in 2001 under PLUTO in SAG were for the SAG country U.S.? Let’s trust that a Chinese economy breakdown that spirals down the World economy can be avoided. And that it’ll be not just a recovery but a turning point for the better, for the wellness of humans, the economy, and nature.

EARTH is in the Chinese system associated with

  • The Centre (also in Feng Shui / the BaGua) –
    Hmmm, China was called The Middle Empire – likely associated with the Centre in Feng Shui.
    And the virus apparently originated / spread from the centre of China – Wuhan is in Central China’s Hubei province.
  • The Change of Seasons (rather than ONE season)
    Also a time when viruses are most prevalent.
  • The Planet SATURN – corresponds with SATURN in earthy CAP (this year in transition to AQ).
  • The Colour Yellow.
  • The Yellow Dragon.
  • The digestive system, spleen, and stomach.
    If it’s true that the virus spread via a leap from wild animals to humans (perhaps with a market animal as a bridge) it would have been ingested somehow.

And now for the RAT Year (since Jan 25, 2020)
The time when the news about the virus were spreading, and the world at large became aware of it – and as instead of visiting their families for CNY Wuhan citizens were in enforced quarantine, while many did escape ‘just in time’ from the ‘sinking ship’, and spread the virus further.

Btw the Bat (if it was indeed the ‘initial carrier’ of the virus) isn’t related to the Rat.

The two significant Astro transits in the RAT year will be, with JUPITER (which as the Chinese Animals, has a 12-year cycle) this year in CAP, JUPITER / PLUTO, and JUPITER / SATURN.

From the blog:

JUPITER / PLUTO
Their 3 conjunctions in CAP will be Apr 4, June 28, and Nov 12, 2020, ending a 13-year cycle since 2007 and beginning a new one.

Big time transformation (PLUTO) through understanding & outgrowing the old system (JUPITER in CAP).
The Power of resourcefulness, voluntary simplicity, and quality over quantity. Time to bring out our Best – from our Soul Essence. RAT is a resourceful & resilient survivor, so creative and propitious – when accessing our true Gold (that sometimes sadly only crisis brings out).

JUPITER / SATURN
Their conjunction on Dec 21 / Winter Solstice 2020
 – just days after both Planets will be OUT of CAP, coming together at 1° AQ – and starting a new 20-year cycle.
The now ending socio-economic-political cycle began in 2000 in TAURUS
: Conservative political leadership, territorialism, consumerism, and thankfully at least also a growing concern for Nature.

Their alignment on the cusp of AQ initiates two decades of collaboration and social responsibility of all Humanity – beyond CAP hierarchies.

RATs are very smart, perceptive, and solution oriented. They figure things out, are industrious, resourceful, resilient, and adaptable to necessary changes  – clearly all qualities needed in this situation!

Also super relevant in the context of the virus and its effects / implications:
RAT in the 1st Triad of Power
RAT is in the Chinese Zodiac system part of the 1st Triad – of Power, and buddies with Dragon & Monkey.
All 3 Animals are powerful and capable of great good and great destruction – hence the key is ego control and transformation of shadow to light.
All 3 have potent energy and unpredictability. Their gifts of intelligence, charisma, authority, confidence, and eloquence need to be used and channeled wisely.

RAT starts a new Element: METAL – in the Chinese system associated with 

  • The West
  • The Fall Season – possibly the time already when the virus started to take hold in China.
  • The respiratory system & lungs & large intestine.
    Uhhh, protecting the respiratory tract from viruses…(!!!) Gosh, I wrote this already in the CNY blog!
  • The Planet VENUS. VENUS was in PISCES-to-ARIES in the first big wave of the virus (Jan 13 – Feb 7 – March 4). A lot can be attracted and picked up in a no boundary situation, followed by being drawn to survival / super activism mode incl. survival shopping. ‘squirrel style’.
  • The Colour White – hence also: White RAT – reminiscent of labs.
  • METAL objects & forms. In Feng Shui, these include round forms, circles, spheres, coins. Economy and technology.

It’s good to strengthen / be supported by all those attributes, always, and esp. in these two METAL years.

 

Huge PISCES wave, incl MERCURY retro, and SUN – NEPTUNE, Feb to mid-March

Acute factors to consider re: Pervasive anxiety & Virophobia:

MERCURY still retro (since Feb 16 until March 9) – with the next week being again ‘stormy’ (until March 19) in the turnaround phase. And it’s been mostly in PISCES (the energy of Oneness, yet also all-pervasive / invasive overwhelming no boundary situations, contagious vibes for better or worse, fusion & confusion). MERCURY is going back & forth over the ‘Coherence Point’ of AQ – PI – AQ – PI where collective energies affect groups and even all of humanity: We’re all in this together! An intense opport-unity to be mindful of where thoughts & emotions go in this wave of confusion and premonitions… but: not BEING the mind. Gaining space. Breathing into Being. 

The SUN reaches and passes (once a year) NEPTUNE, on March 8. Yes, the tide is high – showing us how indeed we’re ONE World. NEPTUNE’s been in PI since 2012, and until 2026.

Both the SUN & NEPTUNE are now in the central (10 – 20 degrees) SCORPIOnic part of PISCES, where things intensify to reach a turning point of transformation.

 

Culmination with the Full Moon in VIRGO – PISCES (with NEPTUNE), on March 9, and resolution thereafter?

The next FULL MOON – on MoOnday March 9 – is building up, with the MOON in VIRGO, ruling health, wellness, hygiene, and a rational, analytical, practical, problem-solution approach – yes, we need all of this!- and the SUN in PISCES with NEPTUNE, asking to shine the light of conscious connectedness into the whole, and be radiant in the ONE.

Check out the preview chart of the Full Moon:

SO, let’s hope the FULL MOON will be a grand culmination of the whole virus scenario!
At least a culmination of the first and massive wave.
With MERCURY going out of retro (also on March 9 – turnaround phase until March 19) and out of PISCES (Apr 10) the mega fuzzy / messy / confusing information situation will resolve, and we know more – which can change the picture and the next steps.

Blessings for Wellness of Body & Mind in all of us, and in the World CommUnity! 

 

The Role of SATURN going into AQ on March 21, for its first phase (until July 1)

SATURN is now on the CAP – AQ cusp where community building and collaboration on all levels are necessary – even if challenging. We realize that even with bringing our best forward (CAP) we can only go so far by ourselves.
Group synergy is where it’s at.
In smaller circles of friends, in common-interest groups, in community projects, in all kinds of teams.  
And the emphasis is on equality in the circle – beyond CAP hierarchy. Everyone brings their best into the project.

Can we do this?!

And can this be done on a global scale?
It must, says SATURN, now for a ‘test phase’ in AQ (March 21 – July 1), before it goes back to CAP for last ‘unfinished business’ at the last degrees. On Dec 16, SATURN will enter AQ for the next 2 1/2 years, followed by JUPITER on Dec 19.
Both Planets come together in their epic conjunction on the 1st degree of AQ, closing a 20-year socio-political-economic cycle since 2000, and opening a new one.
This all points to the necessity of more collaboration of all faculties and organizations – with the danger of even more control from this ‘high-level’ network.  May the responsibility that comes with it be used wisely!
And may We the People (AQ) step into our intrinsic authority. 
Divided we fall. United we stand.

(Even more) division via technology is a big danger of SATURN in AQ. The shadow / repercussions of technology / science, as well as their responsibility will become evident.  How can scientific collaboration help with solving the virus issue? Timing is crucial, says SATURN.
Currently, fear (SATURN) of being in community events and gatherings of people is already kicking in, due to virophobia. Events are being cancelled / postponed, and there may be more community regulations.
Let’s be cautious, responsible – and realistic.

SATURN (and JUPITER next year!) in AQ can even bring a re-structuring of society – and together with the AQ Ruler URANUS in TAU upheavals in the economy, leading to fresh innovative approaches to values and nature.

Bottom line – let’s not be caught in the default mode of fearful isolation, and make an effort (a little initiative goes a long way…) to reach out to friends and community to organize, co-innovate together, and raise vibrations!

 

Lastly – importantly:

Astrological Transits for China, 2020 and beyond

Here’s once again the chart of China – creation of the PRC (People’s Republic of China) in 1949, after the Civil War and Communist Revolution:

The revolutionary, egalitarian ideal for / in the People is reflected in its AQ AC with the MOON (the People) rising, and the ruling Planet URANUS in the lunar abode CANCER.
Yet also – hidden in plain sight – JUPITER in CAP in its 12th House. 
Lots of hardship, deprivation, an omnipresence of control institutions, ‘heavy lifting’, and lately, under PLUTO in CAP since 2008 (first time in Communist China’s history, first time in 250 years), ueber production – carried by / at the expense of most of the population, producing under inhumane, disrespectful conditions, economic power, and, yes, also: new economically privileged elites having made their way ‘UP’ in China.
Looks like the shadow comes to an intense crescendo / breakdown / burnout / transformation now, with PLUTO & SATURN (see SAT-PLU paragraph above) on China’s JUPITER – first phase last Spring / early Summer, and full-on with their conjunction on Jan 12, 2020. Hiding / repressing / oppressing ain’t no more. The ‘Old Empire’ expires. The CAP shadow is are out now, and ‘spilling over’ (12th House) collectively / globally. No more business as usual. Not just productivity (CAP) but more importantly: the People (MOON) are deeply affected by something that seems to have ‘a life of its own’ (PLUTO) unless controlled and contained (SATURN). 
How can China and its effects on the world recover and regenerate, stronger and evolved?! 
Its power has to be used in a responsible, exemplary, transformed way.

Quite striking that Communist China was founded with the same constellation of SUN / NEPTUNE / MERCURY retro (then in LIBRA) as we’re having this month (in PISCES, see Full Moon chart) – very rare!
China brought the Neptunian Communist ideal to life (SUN / NEPTUNE) as apparent ‘perfect balance’, yet the conjunction with MERCURY retro in LIBRA hints towards the fact that ‘diplomacy’, nice word cosmetics and slogans can’t camouflage the harsh omnipresent bigger picture (JUPITER in CAP in the 12th),
Plus, the South Node, also in LIBRA, close to the SUN / NEPTUNE / MERCURY retro cluster, and North Node in ARIES with LILITH (where LILITH is this year!) says, better than ‘dancing around’ strategically is to be authentic and make bold first steps forward.

A big challenging test for China, as JUPITER & SATURN on the CAP / AQ cusp between China’s JUPITER and MOON this year show how the government (CAP) and society (AQ) are held accountable to use their best resources / their resources for the best purpose. And to not isolate but collaborate, scientifically and politically (SATURN in AQ).

And speaking of Eclipses:
As mentioned, the ‘Ring of Fire’ Annular Solar Eclipse on Dec 25 / 26 happened round the time the virus broke out and was eventually reported.
The also annular / Ring of Fire Summer Solstice Solar Eclipse on June 21 at the 1st degree of CANCER will be super close to China’s ruling Planet, the revolutionary URANUS, and the Eclipse shadow will go over China. 
A ‘light switch’ for a new revolutionary consciousness?!

When JUPITER & SATURN align on Dec 21 at the 1st degree of AQ, starting a new  20-year socio-economic-political cycle that’ll be super close to China’s MOON / AC. Truly a new era for China.

 

 

Hope all the ‘serious stuff’ written above doesn’t bring you fear. 
Rather an informed alternative perspective.
To see is to be FREE.

Important to not go into fear-separation, but cultivate highly contagious vibrations of LOVE, and send them out to whom it may concern!

ASTRO CONSULTATIONS

Serving you with astrological guidance and perspective, pointing you to Your ‘Inner Cosmic Compass’.
I’d love to inspire you to be in alignment with, and smoothly ‘ride’, those ‘auspicious’ or ‘challenging’ waves of cosmic energies that present themselves at a given time, and, similar to climate and weather, affect our human energy field.
Why?
Because it leads to eye opening awareness, growth, healing, release, transformation, and you can feel connected with yourself in the bigger evolution. Ultimately, you can dwell in a witnessing place in the ‘Hub of the Wheel’ where you are less and less affected, more and more liberated, and self-realized.

The birth chart is an incarnational map to identify your ‘original imprint’and themes that are showing up as ‘issues’ in your life. 

I help you see how you don’t need to be unconsciously identified with them, and they don’t have to run your life. I welcome you as a client who is not seeking a ‘reading’ from me (“What’s going to happen TO me?”, “What am I supposed to do?”), but to be supported in accessing your own wisdom source, especially in times of a challenging transitions, stuckness, transformational crisis, or for perspective at a crossroad, dilemma, or empowered choices.

This is to empowered and liberating ways of working with the ancient and timeless gift of Astrology!    

Feeling called to explore your own Cosmic Map, and how it can guide you on your Earthly Journey?

Ring of Fire Super CAP Annular Solar Eclipse (Dec 25 / 26) – Out of the Old Paradigm. Into New Ways of Being.

23 Dec

Solstice Blessings, dear Cosmic Friends on this Sacred Earth!

The Winter Solstice in the Northern Hemisphere has brought back the – ever so slowly but surely – returning Light, as the daylight is getting longer, second by second, and minute by minute.

Hope you and yours have been also celebrating in Joy of the Light Returning!

 

And now – right on Christmas Day / Boxing Day:

The ‘Ring of Fire’ Annular Solar Eclipse is coming!

On Dec 25 / 26 –  and the path of the ‘Ring of Fire’ will go over the Arabian Peninsula, Indian Ocean, Southern and South-East Asia.

 

 

It sets the tone for a Super CAP season, culminating on Jan 12, 2020, with the epic and much anticipated (yet already gradually building up) SATURN – PLUTO conjunction which comes only every 38 years, and occurred in CAP the last time several hundreds of years ago.
It is also amplified by JUPITER, freshly in CAP, and right ‘next to’ the Eclipse New Moon. See chart below.

Obviously a Big and important one.

 

Celtic Wheel of the Year, with the cardinal Turning Points of the Equinoxes and Solstices: Ostara, LITHA (Summer Solstice), Mabon, YULE (Winter Solstice)

And it will be one of the TWO major ecliptic Solstice New Moons of the Year:
The Dec 25 / 26, 2019 Annular Solar Eclipse in CAP (with SO much CAP) just after the Winter Solstice.
The June 20 / 21, 2020 Annular Solar Eclipse at 0º21 CAN just 9 hrs after the Summer Solstice.

Both are catalyzing karmic pathways, collectively and for us personally, esp. if we have CAPRICORN and CANCER energies in our charts.

They are super significant Eclipses, as they happen on the cardinal Solstice Points of the year, where energy takes a turn and a new lead.

 

In 2019 / 2020, seven Eclipses in CAP / CAN are on!

 

Four CAP / CAN Eclipses in 2019:

 

Three CAP – CAN Eclipses in 2020 (the new year will see six Eclipses altogether!):

  • Jan 10 Full Moon / PLE in CAN / CAP, with Jupiter, Mercury, Saturn, and Pluto in CAP.
  • June 21 / 22 New Moon Annular SE (Seed Eclipse) in CAN.
  • July 4 / 5 Full Moon PLE in CAP / CAN, with Jupiter / Pluto in CAP.

 

Have you been feeling the Eclipse effects (usually building up the month before)?

The Christmas ‘Ring of Fire’ Annular Solar ECLIPSE in early CAP helps us with releasing and ‘recycling’ the old ‘business as usual’. The Old Empire is expiring, as it’s unsustainable (a critical CAP question) and has shown ample evidence (Saturn) for its (self)destructive (Pluto) potential.

As an Annular Solar Eclipse, the MOON almost completely covers the SUN disk, reduced to a fiery ring ‘behind’ the MOON.
Symbolically, the Yin / Female / Lunar quality steps in front of the Yang / Masculine / Solar to create a temporary darkening effect.
A light switch in consciousness. 

 

Lunar South Node Glyph

Every New Moon closes a lunar month cycle and initiates a new one.
A Solar Eclipse is an exact New Moon – a clear threshold and ‘re-set’ of Solar Consciousness, aligned with the ‘karmic pathways’ of the Lunar Nodes:
Lights off / on!

Lunar North Node Glyph

The South Node of the Moon has been since Nov 2018 in CAPRICORN and the North Node in CANCER.
More about this phase (until June 2020) in this blog post

The ‘cosmic outbreath’ / switch-off button is on the CAP side these days / months / years, and the cosmic ‘inbreath’ / incentive / switch on button comes from the CANCER side:

We’re called to breathe out / be done with cruel, oppressive, abusive, exploiting, wasteful top-down linear structures.
And take in fresh energy of caring and belonging in the Human Family. We are in the Circle of Life.

The Lunar Nodes are about Balance (rather than old-school dualistic: do this, avoid the opposite) – after all, breathing is cyclical too:
How about:
Remembering the Ancient EarthMother (CAP-CAN), and the ways of our Ancestors – translated into this time… What would help us move forward in a Life sustaining and nurturing ways?

If we ‘jump’ through the Ring of Fire of the old CAP modus operandi we find ourselves in a different way of Being.
Maybe the old Ring has simply become to small and tight, and it’s time to take it off. Expansive JUPITER in CAP now – showing up right by the Eclipse – magnifies the Old, and says: “There’s more than that.”
I bet you sense what that means in your life (and pointers would show up in the area of life relating to early CAP in your chart).
Below I expand on outgrowing (or jumping out of) the Old.

 

Two CAP New Moon Eclipses frame 2019 (Jan 5 / 6 and Jan 25 / 26)!


Such a year to take stock / inventory.
Which is revealing & naturally empowering.

  • Remember the early Jan Partial Solar Eclipse (with Saturn) in CAP?
  • What has been your inner and societal ‘Old Empire’ that had its expiry year in 2019?

  • And – since energy doesn’t just disappear unless we’re talking Black Hole – what have the endings of an era turned into?

  • Do you see evidence of regeneration from ‘compost’ into new growth already?

 

Maybe you’ve been super frustrated with generic, conditioned, ingrained ‘operating systems’ and structures esp. in socio-economic realms, with lacking leadership & poor modelling of integrity (SATURN in CAP).
Ok – we know now what doesn’t work in the status quo.
Common sense / Natural Law would do things differently.
Question is, do we still engage with the old, in the hope to help change the system from within?

Or is this futile for various reasons, and time & energy are better invested in creatively (hey, CANCER represents  creative Mother Goddess energy) building (CAP) the New – in organic co-creative ways, modeled by Nature – as eco systems & biospheres do?!

 

 

 

Yet – helpful to call it out – so that we catch ourselves when being tempted to buy into it / feeling trapped,  and to disengage.
Acknowledgment helps with closure.

 

The old linear & hierarchical paradigm is based on misconceptions / limiting lies of scarcity, separation, and superiority.

 

Limiting Lie 1:
Scarcity of resources.

False. Resources are not limited. They need to be allocated in a different way.
Gandhi’s words sum it up: “The world has enough for the human need, but not enough for the human greed.”
Well, and competition fits well with scarcity.
Innovation / creativity / cooperation as an unlimited resource is not (yet) enough supported (since some if not most innovations would make established profit producing activities redundant).
The Bigger Truth (JUPITER) is: Nature is abundant.

 

Limiting Lie 2:
Separation.

When people buy into it they can be easily divided and ruled.
Applies also to apparent self sufficiency via ‘convenient’ (for whom really?) tech gadgets that seem to connect yet also de facto separate us. And they need our attention and create psychological checking-checking dependency / addiction (hey, also because it’s never the ‘real thing, always a simulation) as well as economic dependency (upgrades, newest models, compatibility).
Separation is an artificial / untrue concept.
The Bigger Truth is interrelatedness & oneness. Spiritually & scientifically obvious by now.
The era with NEPTUNE in PISCES (2012 – 2026) has shown it to us, on all levels…

 

Limiting Lie 3:
Superiority.
Based on Separation – some are on top aka bosses, elite; others ‘beneath’.
Applies to structured relationships between humans, and came with patriarchal hierarchies.
And applies to relationships between humans and other sentient beings. A disastrous mistranslation / interpretation of the Bible in Genesis 1:28, “Be fruitful and multiply and replenish the earth and subdue it, and have dominion over / reign / govern over… every living thing”?!
Well, the Bible itself is quite a patriarchal document, and in that sense it’s sadly consistent.
Sad (convenient) justification for abuse / slavery / colonization. The shadow of CAP.
The Bigger Truth is: Interdependence of Life. Nobody’s entitled to put themselves on top of other Beings. And hey, we’re all in a process of decolonization.
A new foundation for co-creation, community building, and collaboration in equality is on the horizon, as SATURN & JUPITER enter AQ in 2020, and align at 0º28’AQ at Winter Solstice 2020.

 

The economic ‘business as usual’ paradigm whose operating system is based on the 3 Lies and striving to maximize production & profit – often at the expense of ‘externalities’ = impacts on ‘third parties’ (another Orwellian newspeak way of masking / hiding the simple truth of damage been done) –has failed.
B.t.w., paradigm in its original sense means: A model, pattern, precedent, even: exhibit.
Hence, not a given, and up for change if it doesn’t work.
Yet, sadly, so many parties are invested in the destructive & dysfunctional old.
Mostly to maintain status and privileges. Or out of fear / feeling trapped & unimagination stick with the ‘old devil’.

 

What helps – what doesn’t?

‘Just’ reacting to, resisting, blaming, and fighting external authority and power structures (SATURN / PLUTO) is not the way forward. It still feeds their energy field by giving them attention, acknowledging them energetically, in an adolescent & victim manner.

Time to take self-responsibility, claim self-authority (SATURN in CAP), and to ‘outgrow’ (JUPITER  in CAP, next to the Eclipse) the Old. By co-building new and better, more compassionate and humane structures that take care of needs more directly and on an equal level, rather than the  fossilized top-down institutionalized world?!

 

Snowy Stone Circles on Beacon Hill – timeless / ‘retro’ photo from 5 years ago, Dec 2014 (before they were fenced in!)

 

The natural ways flow with and the Natural Law respects the Web of Life:
All is Connected. All is ONE.
Abundance is an expression of continuous creation & creativity.
Our Ancestors (CAP) knew it and the Elders (CAP) teach it. 

So simple.

How can we consistently, step by step like the Solstice light / early CAP SUN, implement the new and growing energy of integrity, resourcefulness, less-is-more contentment, and calm simplicity?
JUPITER now in CAP since Dec 2 and for almost all of 2020 helps us with outgrowing the Old and expired, bringing our Best to the World, and working with Time & Resources for the highest Good.



This is the last Solar Eclipse in CAP for a while.

In about 19 years will be the next ones.
Big time endings of old unsustainable and / or outlived / expired structures.

Eclipses come back to the same point in the Zodiac every 19 years.
There was a CAP New Moon / PSE Solar Eclipse over North & Central America on Dec 25, 2000!
An invitation to reflect upon that cycle:

  • What did you build (CAP) since then, and what’s now coming to an assessment / inventory?

  • CAP refers to success / failure as an important criterion. Yet it’s not so ‘obvious’, since even ‘defeat’ on an outer / ego level can lead to spiritual advancement.

  • Where do you stand in relation to society and its structures (CAP)?

  • What have you contributed, and what are your best qualities (CAP) that are being called for now?

  • What are / have become (CAP) priorities (from an empowered and evolutionary place)?

  • What’s super timely (CAP) now for you?

  • How can you be in deep time / Soul time?

 

The 19-year early CAP Solar Eclipse cycle (2000 – 2019) is almost congruent with the 20-year JUPITER – SATURN cycle (2000 – 2020)!

Wall St. Bronze Bull

Uhhh – another confirmation of what the Ring of Fire Solar Eclipse announces:
A socio-political-economic JUPITER-SATURN cycle is ending, and a new one is beginning, in 2020.
Well, 2020 will be such a historic year.

The now ending 20-year cycle we’re in started on May 28, 2000, as JUPITER & SATURN aligned in TAURUS, initiating two decades of Taurean consumerism, conservatism, and territorialism.
Of course, money – a prime Taurean factor – has played a big role, if not: Ruled the game.

On an evolutionary level, the value of Nature and of protecting Mother Earth (TAU) became more prominent too.

End of 2020, JUPITER & SATURN will align on the AQ side of the CAP-AQ ‘Community Building / Humanity Collaboration’ cusp – after a year of big CAP transformations.
We’re stepping into a new Era.

 

Well, and what’s with the Christmas Spirit?

Not an ‘accident’ (what is?) that the Eclipse falls on Christmas Day / Boxing Day.
Simple message right there:
With all the CAP shadow of busy production mode, FOMO (so much to do, so little time to take it all in), being ueber scheduled, buying into externalized conditioning of expectations, showing up where you don’t feel authentically called to, getting ‘obli-gifts’, pretending, compensating via materialism, crazy consumerism (incl. Boxing Day rush), the true Christmas Spirit is vastly ‘lost in translation’.

SO – Time to jump through all the falsity and into what’s true and essential about Christmas and all the celebrations of Light & Love at this Sacred Time. 

 

A Release Ceremony

…on the day before the Eclipse New Moon (= tomorrow Dec 24 / Dec 25 daytime) would be in perfect alignment with the energies, and supported by the Universe.
Maybe you’d love to bring a gift to Mother Earth to a place by the water for a release-with-love, while asking for transformation?

I like the model of the Despacho which I was honoured to be part of at Winter Solstice 2012.
Creating a beautiful gift (also for release, like in a letter) with decoration according to your intuitive guidance, on an Earth friendly biodegradable cloth, wrapping it up like a parcel, and offering it to Mother Earth as a gift and for transformation. Maybe bringing it to a flowing Water body.

 

And, as always with the Eclipses (twice a year, a pair of Lunar and Solar Eclipse occur), the Annular Solar Eclipse catalyzes what’s going on in the Astro sphere otherwise.

SO – let’s take a good look at the

Birth Chart of the Ring of Fire Annular Solar Eclipse

The CAP New Moon will occur at 9:13 pm PST on Dec 25 / 12:13 am EST on Dec 26.
The maximum Eclipse will be at 9:17 pm PST.
So it really is energetically a Total Solar Eclipse.

 

 

And SO much CAP indeed!

Right next to the Eclipse New Moon is JUPITER (met by the MOON just 2 hrs after the NM / Eclipse, and by the SUN on Dec 27). Also super close-by: the South Node Release Point, and SATURN approaching PLUTO (their exact union will be on Jan 12).
What a strong gravitational cluster!

An Old World / Old Empire comes to an end. 
Traditionally / symbolically, an Eclipse has been considered ‘the Death of a Ruler / King’ as the SUN is overshadowed by the MOON. Lights off.
The death of the shadow of what rules and governs us, in the hierarchical CAP world – see above…
How do you relate to that?
And what can the old shadow world / empire transform into?

With SATURN – PLUTO (they were already close to each other and to the South Node in CAP for an extended time this Spring and early Summer) it’s helpful to tap into our deepest / core fears.
MARS now in SCO (until Jan 3) helps with diving into what’s usually hidden and covered.
Accessing and acknowledging deep fears and perhaps THE core fear can be SO key for moving to empowering change.
It’s the first step for letting transformation, healing
(CHIRON in ARIES in square with the Eclipse), and liberation from the inside-out (URANUS retro in TAU in trine with the Eclipse) happen, which can turn into truly-naturally emBodying Freedom.

SATURN – PLUTO will help us with transforming externalized authority & power / control into letting Soul / Higher Power take the lead, and doing the Soul work. 

 

Star Cluster in the Galactic Centre (NASA) – Heart of our Milky Way, in the direction to end of SAG where the SUN travels just before the Winter Solstice

MERCURY is now end of SAG – pointing to the direction of the Galactic Centre – the Heart of our Milky Way Galaxy, where ultimate Raison d’Etre, Why and Truth are always unfathomable (definitely for the mind) and a Matter of Heart. The Galactic Centre at the end of SAG – close to the ‘Integrity Point’ to CAP is about the ultimate Unknown that points us to the Wisdom and Knowing of the Spiritual Heart, and to ultimate Trust in the Journey. Let the Heart Speak, and follow the Heart Light!
On Dec 28, MERCURY will enter CAP
– reminding us / them to walk the talk.

 

VENUS is now in AQ (Dec 19 – Jan 13)- the one Planet offering a breath of fresh AIR into the otherwise super earthy cosmic Alchemy.
VENUS heralds the shift of SATURN & JUPITER into AQ in 2020, and evokes our Love for Humanity and its Future.
‘She’ likes to
bring people together to collaborate, be visionary – perhaps Utopian, and innovative.

 

Lastly, let’s see what the 

Sabian Symbol of the Eclipse New Moon

…wants to show us.
The New Moon will be at 4º06′ CAP.

 

Songhees Nation Christmas / Solstice / Eagle Tree – Canoe Paddles included – as seen last week

 

4º CAP:

“A GROUP OF PEOPLE OUTFITTING A LARGE CANOE AT THE START OF A JOURNEY BY WATER.

KEYNOTE: The ability to use natural resources and basic skills in order to achieve a group-purpose.

As this scene was recorded in the original version only in imprecise terms, it seems merely to indicate the start of a journey undertaken by a cohesive group of people, who perhaps together have built this large canoe. Thus we see here a common enterprise which may be an answer to the need for a change of locality. A social group more strongly than ever reveals its homogeneity and common will when it decides to move away from its familiar habitat. The zodiacal sign Capricorn brings this common will to a focus in concrete actions. It does so in terms of socio-political expediency and under a definite type of executive direction, even though the decisions are arrived at by common consent.

As this is the fourth symbol in the fifty-fifth five-fold sequence, we find in it a hint of how to do something concrete. The “canoe” may also have a special technical meaning, as it uses water in order to move. A common feeling-response to a specific situation may be implied. The main emphasis is nevertheless on GROUP-ACTIVITY in circumstances implying a need for change.”

 

Perfect!
The Symbol brings the solution to moving out of the (recent) Old World paradigm, and points to where it’s going next year and in the years to come.
The canoe / boat and journey by water are CANCER symbols (as is the tribe and the human family) – where the North Node is now.
Big Gratitude for the confirmation!

 

Blessings for the Ring of Fire SoUlar Eclipse!
Let’s jump through / outgrow the old Ring with Heart Power.
And start building vehicles of Change together!

Serving you with astrological guidance and perspective, pointing you to Your ‘Inner Cosmic Compass’.

I’d love to inspire you to be in alignment with, and smoothly ‘ride’, those ‘auspicious’ or ‘challenging’ waves of cosmic energies that present themselves at a given time, and, similar to climate and weather, affect our human energy field.

Why?
Because it leads to eye opening awareness, growth, healing, release, transformation, and you can feel connected with yourself in the bigger evolution. Ultimately, you can dwell in a witnessing place in the ‘Hub of the Wheel’ where you are less and less affected, more and more liberated, and self-realized.

The birth chart is an incarnational map to identify your ‘original imprint’and themes that are showing up as ‘issues’ in your life. I help you see how you don’t need to be unconsciously identified with them, and they don’t have to run your life.

I’m always happy to welcome you as a client who is not seeking a ‘reading’ from me (“What’s going to happen TO me?”, “What am I supposed to do?”), but to be supported in accessing your own wisdom source, especially in times of a challenging transitions, stuckness, transformational crisis, or for perspective at a crossroad, dilemma, or empowered choices.

This is to empowered and liberating ways of working with the ancient and timeless gift of Astrology!  

 

Feeling called to explore your own Cosmic Map, and how it can guide you on your Earthly Journey?

VIRGO – Super-PISCES (pseudo-ecliptic) Full Moon, Pointing to SATURN in SAG ~*~ Heart Medicine, Oneness Consciousness, and Living in Wholeness

11 Mar

Endings and Release-in-the-ONE galore:
We’re approaching

  • the last Full Moon in Winter
  • the last Full Moon in the Zodiac cycle this year, and also
  • the last Full Moon close to the Lunar (karmic, ecliptic) Nodes in PI – VIR!
    As I’ll lay out below, it’s basically a ‘Pseudo Eclipse’. Lots of endings and release-in-love, making room for new re-alignment.


Let’s backtrack to the recent major Solunar event:

How has the journey with the massive, oceanic ‘Ring of Fire’ / Shivaratri Solar Eclipse in PISCES been for you???
Have you been able to ‘jump’ through the ‘ring’ of karma (Eclipses have karmic themes) of unevolved PISCEAN entanglements and co-dependency patterns? We’re talking about victim – perpetrator / persecutor – saviour / martyr ‘triangle’, and various addictions).

So much has been washed UP, from the Sea of the Collective Unconscious that connects us all, like an invisible fabric. Historic trauma, themes that are fishy and slippery and hard to ‘grasp’ with the mind, and they transcend space-time dimensions…

 

Japanese Master Katsushika Hokusai Great Wave of Kanagawa

Japanese Master Katsushika Hokusai: Great Wave of Kanagawa

 

We’re still in the Eclipse wave of course, since Eclipse effects extend over 1 – 2 months (depending on intensity, and one’s own activation). There is still a lot of planetary energy in PISCES – showing up again for the Full Moon tomorrow, and gradually moving over to ARIES – Spring in Becoming!

The Full Moon in late (= double) VIRGO tomorrow March 12 (see chart below) receives the reflection of the SUN in late (= double) PISCES, next to CHIRON and MERCURY, plus NEPTUNE and the South Node in early PISCES – what a cosmic tidal wave!
Vulnerability through overwhelm and feeling lost….?

  • What’s the medicine that CHIRON offers?
  • What’s the practice that VIRGO prescribes?

Since the Full Moon is so close to the Lunar Nodes in the same PI – VIR polarity (PI / South Node – VIR / North Node) I call it energetically a ‘Pseudo Eclipse’. Also, since PISCES energy extends and ‘spills’ it makes sense to treat this Full Moon like an Eclipse.

There’s a reverberation of the vibrations that were present a year ago – with and around the Total Solar Eclipse in PISCES, close to CHIRON – on March 8, 2016…
A lot has shifted and moved since, in the collective oceans… yet there are vibrations that still and again show up.

Piscean CloudFish Photo by Melanie, March 2017

So let’s be aware (VIR) and in a loving, open, neutral place (PI), with the washing up and out of old vibrations – maybe even residues of the whole PISCES Age era, and our connection with it / conditioning by it?

HOW to (a VIRGO approach) release all THAT? That can be overwhelming!!!

I hear VIRGO getting concerned…
Impossible to resolve it all with a ‘strategy’, ‘method’, or ‘fix’, or by analysis…

We can’t keep these collective-connective waves from coming but we can learn and practice surfing and navigating them skillfully (that’s where VIRGO comes in) and, even more so, BE with it all (PISCES) in a good vibration, and loving, heart-ful way.

What gets washed up and released, and what these themes are about for YOU can be seen in your chart – esp. where the VIRGO – PISCES axis is (houses, planets…).
CHIRON in PI says: the ‘Medicine’ is IN the theme itself.

The Full Moon squares SATURN (see chart below) which is presently (until mid May) cruising in late SAG, the direction of the Galactic Center – the Big Unknown and Unknowable, the ‘Black Hole Transformation’ we are going through, with ultimate trust. That’s where the inner Spiritual Guidance comes in, and is being tested.
We are initiated (SATURN) into moving from the Spiritual Heart that knows and guides us. We will be changed in the process, and can’t know what it ‘looks like on the other side’ (the Ego doesn’t like that).
The Full Moon in VIR – PI in almost exact T-Square with SATURN in late SAG – an effect over the coming week, emphasizes:
The path through, or actually with, it is the Path of Heart.

The term reminds me of A Path With Heart – one of Jack Kornfield’s books of Buddhist teachings for the modern world – Here is an audio excerpt. I invite you to tune in and see how it supports your Beingness.

 

Triple_GoddessWere the SUN is presently in the sky during any time of day or night we can picture all those other planets, while the Full MOON is opposite this weekend.
We can expose ourselves to the cosmic unified and unifying PISCEAN medicine field, transmitted by the SUN and CHIRON,
and channel the energy into this dimension, by tuning into the grounding gifts of Grandmother MOON in VIRGO, sign of the Sacred Feminine and Triple Goddess.

How can your cosmic gifts be actualized, put into service, and help you be in alignment with your cosmic assignment?

SATURN in SAG would add: What’s the Heart mission you’re on? Offering from a generous, expectations- and agenda-free place brings the gifts back to ourselves too.

 


What does the chart of the VIRGO – PISCES Full Moon chart look like and tell us, you may ask?

The VIR – PI Full Moon will be exact at 7:54 am PDT (yes, Daylight Savings Time shifts tonight!) tomorrow, March 12, 2017.

Voila, here is the chart:

VIR - PI FM 2017

 

  • Soo much in PISCES, in polarity with the North Node and MOON in VIRGO (which will have just set, at the exact New Moon time, from West Coast perspective).
    Both sides funneling into SATURN in SAG via T-square!
  • SO much mutability (VIR – SAG – PI)!
  • And MARS, barely in TAURUS, as the only Planet in fixed signs. All in flux…
  • The Cardinal T-square with URANUS in ARIES and JUPITER retro in LIBRA, both squaring PLUTO in CAP, is also quite potent, and active until late March, pushing us to step forward into the unknown, be innovative, authentic and spontaneous, make wise choices for synergistic relationships, and build in integrity and sustainability.
  • For all that cardinal energy to kick in (MUCH more so with the ARIES New Moon on March 27) the mutable energy that the Full Moon brings needs to wash out the old.
     
YinYang Infinite

The essence of timeless Tao Wisdom: Yin-Yang Balance is always dynamic and interwoven.


The SUN /  CHIRON / MERCURY / Lunar South Node / NEPTUNE in PI  show us:

All is unified and ONE.
What makes us vulnerable also carries the Heart Medicine.

Letting go of mental hooks and hang-ups (MERCURY in PI), or being caught in the collective web would be so healing.

Perhaps through sound, music, dance, and vibrational medicine (MERCURY in PI responds to those ‘messages’, rather than more inundating hypnotizing ‘news’).

 


The Full MOON in VIR is in Earth trine with PLUTO in CAP – which balances and grounds the energy:

  • Awareness and practice matter.
  • Living simply and sustainably (CAP) in wholeness and wellness (VIR).

The North Node also in VIR is in Earth trine with MARS, freshly in TAURUS since March 9, (see my recent in-depth blog post about this cosmic move):

  • Being in nature, and in our deep (PLUTO) nature helps and sustains.
Saturn Pop

Saturn Infrared (Hubble Space Telescope.


SATURN
(now slowing down into its stationary gear-shift mode to retro – from Apr 6 on) in late SAG – the Galactic Centre / Centaur, between the Full MOON in late VIR and the SUN / CHIRON / MERCURY in late PI receives pressure from both sides, and is itself a T-square ‘outlet’ for the tension, bringing up the big, deep quest(ions):

  • Where is the path in all this? What guides us and makes sense?
  • What prevents us from, and what supports us in aiming from the Heart?

 

Would you like to look closer at these present Full Moon energies?
Dive in with me if you like:

 

Maya Gabeira in Hawaii

As we immerse fully into the PISCEAN field there is just energy, a ‘quantum soup’.
Which can be overwhelming and chaotic, for the individualized, ‘separate’ human personal self. The invitation is to experience and merge in the field of Oneness.

Interconnectedness of ALL can, for our separate identity, be overwhelming, confusing, make us vulnerable – or make us want to escape, be ‘addicted’ to ‘the state of bliss and union’, etc.

I guess you get the picture, and examples are everywhere, incl. the constant influx of media (also ruled by PISCES).

The SUN now in PI brings yearly consciousness to the bigger, longer lasting, and more transpersonal influence of CHIRON (2010 – 2018 in PISCES):
Whoa, so much happening at once – all together now…!

  • Have you been feeling overwhelmed by all kinds of influences and energies that are ‘streaming in and through’?
  • Maybe you have a very vivid dream life, maybe you don’t want to face it all?
  • How about this: The way ‘out’ is the way ‘IN’ – to surrender and trust in being carried by What-IS?

So much is coming together now…

Allow it, and allow yourself to BE.
Maybe that means letting go of, forgiving, releasing something or some ‘disappointment’, ‘illusion’, etc. (chances are in the area of life related to PI in your chart).

CHIRON shows us that old, early, time-transcending wounds can come up in this process (esp. for those of us born in the 1960’s under CHIRON in PI, and anyone with PI placements).

As James Hillman summed it up in a Jungian seminar in Victoria a few years ago:
There are two basic early childhood wounds: Abandonment and overwhelm (invasion, abuse). We might have experienced one more than the other, or both in combination.

DSC00136

Crystal activated Voyager card XVII – Star, showing Kuan Yin… – Goddess of Compassion – Photo and crystal activation by Melanie

Often we have to feel what’s now ripe to be healed. There may be catalysts that bring out the old wounds – to be also healing agents.

Rather than spiritually bypassing the wounds, or indulging in them, or escaping into addictive behaviour (all these are shadow tendencies of South Node in PI), how can we do our part in the healing (CHIRON, and North Node in VIR)?

The Full MOON in VIR – PISCES (with CHIRON), in square with SATURN in SAG may invite us to invoke Divine Mother / Goddess energy that is always available to support us. Like Kuan Yin, Mother Mary…

We can’t ‘do it all’ but we can ask for assistance from Higher dimensions… See how your energy shifts…

Maybe it helps us with dropping resistance and separation, and, rather than putting up boundaries against the ‘tsunami of energy’ (since as sensitive souls we tend to take things in, and they sit and stick there, and possibly contaminate our inner environment) we can gently allow the energy to leave us.

Are there other concrete practices, maybe healthy rituals you can DO (VIRGO) that help us come back into Oneness with / in Life?

The Lunar South Node in PI’s need for Oneness with the Great Mother, the Universe, the All, can lead to ‘looking for Love at the wrong places’, going on a compensation course via addictions of all sorts that promise to let the ‘me’ go away for a while, but hey, it does come back each time, which can turn into a painful vicious cycle.

These ‘depleting’ tendencies can be met by our awareness of wholeness (Full Moon in VIR) from which healing (CHIRON in PI) and renewed Consciousness that-IS (PI SUN) can come.
Practices that lead us to a physical, sensate awareness of wholeness, like mindfulness meditation, Yoga, walks in Nature help, ideally integrated into our life as a healthy routine.

 

Chiron

Wounded Healer / Centaur CHIRON Finding his Medicine through Surrender…

The ‘Medicine Wo/Man CHIRON’ shows that the ‘wound’ carries the medicine.

CHIRON in PI can be about paradoxical and confusing ‘wounds’:

  • Feeling awkward and like an outsider because of our urge for deeper connectedness, yet at the same time
  • Being overwhelmed and exhausted by too many influences, and not able to release energies we have taken in. Hence escapism, distraction, avoidance.

Nowa-years with CHIRON in PI, when we dive in, and experience our oneness with life we can relax, and let go of the idea of separation, or even adversarial ‘you over there’, and are re-connected with life again.

This oneness with what-IS allows us also to let things ‘go through us’ as energy, rather than having them stick to us, or sit in our field.
Just as we have taken it IN (PI is ‘infamous’ for taking a lot IN) we are invited to breathe or otherwise release it OUT. Maybe no need to ‘do anything with it’ (i.e. analyze and work on it…).

Music, Dance, Yoga, Qi Gong, being with or IN water is natural therapy for this kind of release.

CHIRON in PISCES on the ‘opposite side’ of VIRGO (yet representing the ONE), shows that it’s all related. When we drop into Resonance and Love we open up and see:
What we see on the outside / ‘over there’ in ‘them’ has to do with us too. And – maybe in a place of vulnerability – , we ask for help, drop resistance, let go, and let God.

Many people become more and more sensitive – perhaps a symptom of overwhelm with influences streaming at us through the media, through the atmosphere and cyber sphere. I’ve been hearing that from many clients, and experience it myself.

As another ‘energetic hygiene’ and clearing of what we have taken IN, I recommend a simple and very effective Visualization Practice that I adopted from my friend and Satsang teacher Susan Broznitsky, and alternatively, or additionally a Forgiveness Writing Practice.

Therefore, let’s

  • Be in body-mind-spirit alignment, good health, well-being and conscious practice,
  • Be mindful, aware and self-aware,
  • Take care of business, organize, clear and clean,
  • Help ourselves (VIR is a big fan of DiY, and there is so much info online now too, re: How to…)
  • Help others – because you can. ‘Simple’, ‘small’ acts of service – can be a big deal for them, and so rewarding.

VIRGO thrives on alignment and self-containment, discernment, loves wellness practices, recipes, remedies, and rituals. And it’s important to heal low vibrational VIRGO (“never good enough, always problems”) with higher VIRGO vibes.

  • What is your Body Temple showing you?
  • What can you do (with joy and awareness) to help and serve others, and make the world a better place? Maybe in the service lays your own healing?
  • What needs physical cleaning / clearing / organizing in your life (how about starting with a small realm, like: the desk?). The present VIR – PI dynamic helps with clearing clutter and reorganizing things so that life energy can flow more smoothly (and you know where things are…).
  • How about rituals like media / cell phone free walks? We don’t need to be constantly exposed to media and available (PI).
  • What are you grateful for (SATURN in SAG)? Even (and maybe esp.) those ‘small’ things (VIR).

 

Voyager II Priestess Crystals 1

Crystal activated Voyager Tarot card II – Priestess – Photo by Melanie

VIRGO is the energy of the harvest goddess and priestess who is clear and aligned with her sacred Self which she keeps in integrity.

VIRGO practices self-awareness (the energy of the LEO-to-VIR Sphinx Point where the North Node sits this Spring), and tends to ‘her’ body-mind-spirit temple through clearing, discernment, sacred practice, such as ceremony and ritual.

Which means in our practical daily life:
A body / health / wellness / nutrition practice and lifestyle. A healthy body in a healthy spirit.

  • Is there a practice you can adopt right now that would benefit your well being? Something simple and self-sufficient, like – cell phone free – walks, Yoga, exercise, getting more regularly fresh air)?
  • Which ‘recipes, remedies, and rituals’ would your inner mentor prescribe? Like: adding / removing something from your diet, sleep, work style and hours, certain practices that make you overall happier and healthier, a morning ritual?
  • Is there something is ripe and ready now to be harvested, as in: let go of?
  • Would a ceremony help release something old and outlived, or help invite beneficial cosmic energies?

What a creative combo of both PI and VIR could look like:

  • Ride the waves, immerse in your element.
  • Your skills are what comes easy.
  • Holding space for others can be the best service you can offer.
  • Clean up and play music.
  • Energy Medicine. AstroSomatics.
  • Sacred Geometry.
  • Astrology and its practical, embodied benefits.
  • Being in the world, yet not of the world. Doing what needs to be done, yet not in attachment.
  • God helps those who help themselves. Doing our share, and trusting divine intervention.
  • Random acts of service bring fulfillment.
Voyager VIII Balance

Voyager Tarot Card VIII Balance


(Why am I so drawn to bring in Voyager Tarot cards today? Maybe to show you their natural alignment with Astrology)

BALANCE is the way to go, or rather to BE (says also JUPITER in LIBRA – presently retro, so it’s really an ‘inner game’)

In the ‘whirlwind’ of things that can kick us off balance – an unhealthy thing, of course – how can we infuse a situation where ‘problems’ show up or we / things are not aligned (VIR) with flow, allowance, acceptance, and love, which might mean release and let go(d) (PI)?

 

 

Intentionality is important too, and SATURN stationary in late SAG (going retro on Apr 6) in T-square to the Nodal / Ecliptic axis, supports clear Heart Intentions.

SATURN is the Planetary Archetype of Mastery, Maturity, Lessons, Karma. It also rules the Root Chakra and anchors us in what-IS.

SATURN has been in SAG since Sept 17, 2015 (with an episode until 5° SAG from Dec 2014 until mid-June 2015), and will leave SAG / enter CAP two days before the Winter Solstice 2017.
Clearly, humanity has been dealing with socio-political and global issues that don’t just ‘go away’. We can’t pretend to be blind to them anymore (SAG literally rules eye sight, and perspective in a broader sense), and need to deal with them. I don’t want to expand on it here – we all are well aware.

Saturn & Earth

On a personal level, what are the challenges SATURN in SAG asks us to deal and be done with?

Classical obstacles ‘on the SAG path’ are judgment, dogmatism, “my way or the highway”, lack of trust, a cynical humour at others’ expense, no real perspective on things, being blind sighted and biased, missing the obvious…

What can help us move forward ‘in the right direction’, without making anyone ‘wrong’ which perpetuates karma and separation?

Clearly, the answer is in the Heart.

SATURN in SAG is also the storyteller, inspiring yet grounded teacher, and visionary elder.
Let’s invoke those qualities IN us, as SATURN will soon go retro, on April 6!

May the Heart lead the way, in this Journey!

Super PISCEAN ‘Ring of Fire’ Annular Solar ECLIPSE ~ Cosmic Relief ~ Loving Release ~ Deep Trust-in-Renewal!

24 Feb

The ‘Ring of Fire’ Annular Solar Eclipse is coming!

On Feb 26 –  the path of the ‘Ring of Fire’ will go over South-West Africa, the Atlantic, and Argentina / Chile.

 

solar-eclipse-annular

 

 

It will be one of the TWO major ecliptic New Moons linking together”
Feb 26 and Aug 21
(Annular Solar Eclipse over the U.S.A.).

Both are catalyzing karmic pathways, collectively and for us personally, esp. if we have LEO / VIR and AQ / PI energies in our charts.

Have you been feeling the Eclipse effects (usually building up the month before, if not longer), and welcoming the ‘karmic gifts’ it offers?

Tomorrow’s ‘Ring of Fire’ Annular Solar ECLIPSE in early PISCES helps us with releasing, ‘washing out’, and re-balancing in a much bigger way what the LEO / Regulus / VIR – AQ FULL MOON on Feb 10 has been preparing us for:
* Clearing residual ‘chaos’ / overwhelm (South Node / NEPTUNE in PI)
* Re-aligning with integrity (VIR), to radiate our authentic Self (LEO).

 

This is the LAST New Moon of the Zodiac Year which begins with ARIES and ends with PISCES.

And it’s the last Solar Eclipse in PISCES for a while.
Big time Release, to Re-Connect in fresh, new, authentic ways.

 

Remember the Total Solar Eclipse (with CHIRON) in PISCES last year, March 8, 2016?
Or maybe you were ‘out’… (I was, with an extended virus / bacteria infection – a healing crisis to find inner Medicine, during that Solar Eclipse ‘season’ – For me, the theme was releasing overwhelm and unhealthy inter-personal influences, with Love AND clear discernment (VIRGO), so that I could operate and serve better again.

Since Eclipses come back to the same point in the Zodiac every 19 years (there was a PI Solar Eclipse on Feb 26, 1998!) it’s an invitation to reflect upon that cycle:
* What did you let go of, and what did you ‘breathe in’ then? 
* Where has the Ocean of Life taken you since, and what can you release with Love now?

 

Every New Moon closes a lunar month cycle and initiates a new one. A Solar Eclipse is an exact New Moon – a clear threshold and ‘re-set’ of Solar Consciousness, aligned with the ‘karmic pathways’ of the Lunar Nodes:
Lights off / on!

 

The South Node of the Moon has been since Oct 2015 in PISCES (and the North Node in VIRGO). The ‘cosmic outbreath’ / switch-off button is on the PISCES side these days / months / years, and the cosmic ‘inbreath’ / incentive / switch on button comes from the VIRGO side:
When things become chaotic, overwhelming, and exposure to them drains our energy and lowers our vibration (and immune system – ruled by PISCES!) it’s time to cleanse, discern, and to re-claim the inner healthy VIRGO Temple of Wholeness.

Yet, PISCES as the last ‘all-inclusive’ last sign of the Zodiac shows us that indeed all-is-one, the solution is not separation and being overly critical and problem focused (too much VIRGO), but to release what doesn’t serve us or is not healthy and functional, with Love and Blessings, and it can flow away, down the River of Life, or be washed out by the Sea.
The Lunar Nodes are about Balance (rather than old-school dualistic: do this, avoid the opposite).

A Release Ritual on the day before the Eclipse New Moon (= on Saturday Feb 25) would be in perfect PISCES – VIRGO alignment with the energies, and supported by the Universe.
Maybe you’d love to literally bring a gift to a place by the water for a release-with-love?
I got one ‘wrapped-up’ today ❤

The ‘Ring of Fire’ Solar Eclipse is also SUPER WATERY = PISCEAN (MERCURY, South Node, SUN / MOON, NEPTUNE, and CHIRON all in PISCES!).

And, as always with the Eclipses (twice a year, a pair of Lunar and Solar Eclipse occur), it catalyzes what’s going on in the Astro sphere otherwise. Esp. if they happen in omni-connected PISCES…

 

On that note, here is the Eclipse chart:

 

pi-nm-annular-solar-eclipse-2017

The PISCES ‘Ring of Fire’ Solar Eclipse helps us wash out PISCEAN endings, and ignite ARIES-like new beginnings:
Most planetary energies ‘wrap’ round the ‘Birthing Point’, between PI and AR!
A great boost for release and renewal!
Maybe we experience Life and see the World in a whole new way?

 

And: No Planets in fixed signs! Nothing to get attached or hold on to. Nothing to resist…
All is fluid and ephemeral. 
Mirrors and masks… reminds me: it’s also the Carnival weekend – naturally synchronized!

MERCURY will enter PISCES tomorrow Feb 25, and sail the universal waters until March 13 – a very fluid mental sphere to tune into – artistic, all connected, intuitive downloads come easy, yet we can get also overwhelmed by being super open to the randomness of influences.
MERCURY in PI will meet NEPTUNE on March 4, the PI SUN on March 6, CHIRON on March 10, and square SATURN in SAG on March 12.
We can surf these energies by connecting our mind in Oneness, letting Spirit and Consciousness ‘rule’, being open for teachings and healing in the Love that IS, and even dropping old conditioned and hard-wired ‘stories’ and beliefs.

And as we tap into the Cosmic Self (NEPTUNE) we can easily release illusion and delusion. It’s all a game of appearances…

Let’s be the attachment-free Buddhas and Surfers, in the Waters of Love! ❤

 

Buddhasurf_quote

 

There’s even a mutable T-Square forming, from the Nodes in PI – VIR to LILITH in early SAG (on the ‘Phoenix Point’ – in the fresh Fire Rooster / Phoenix Year).
Hearing the Call of our intrinsic, always ‘wild and free’ unconditioned nature we simply know when the Heart says YES!
We can’t ‘go wrong’ by following the Heart Path.
Makes it easier to let go with Love of what’s not serving anymore, and embracing the New, with Trust, and Rising like a Phoenix!
LILITH will square MERCURY on Feb 27, and the Nodes on March 10, so the energy is building right after the Eclipse, and into mid-March.

 

galacticcenter

Star Cluster in the Galactic Centre (NASA) – Heart of our Milky Way, at the end of SAG where the SUN travels just before the WINTER SOLSTICE Point

SATURN, further ‘ahead’ in late SAG, is now in alignment with the Galactic Centre = 26 – 28° SAG (from end of Feb until end of May, esp. stationary there end of March and throughout April, since it will go retro on Apr 6 in the GC!)).

The Galactic Centre at the end of SAG – close to the ‘Integrity Point’ to CAP is about the ultimate Unknown that points us to the Wisdom and Knowing of the Spiritual Heart, and to ultimate Trust in the Journey.

With SATURN activating the GC this Spring, there can be (for the ego) challenging tests and initiations into the ultimate ‘Black Hole’ of what we ‘can’t know’ yet deep down something knows. SATURN in SAG gives us cause-effect feedback, and shows how it is to be in the Freedom of our Truth and Trust, and on our Heart Path, rather than going into separation and judgment towards others. Let’s keep on walking…. – Jumping through the Ring of Fire helps!

 

Lots of ARIES energy is UP too, in the Eclipto-sphere and chart, with ‘Amazon’ VENUS, and: MARS – meeting URANUS on the DAY of the Eclipse!

Now that’s quite the starter boost!

MARS / URANUS in AR opposite JUPITER retro in LI form also a cardinal T-Square with PLUTO in CAP – whoaaa! Re-activating the epic URANUS – PLUTO square (7 exact alignments between 2012 – 2015), now with JUPITER in LIBRA involved:

  • How do we move out of and free ourselves from unsustaining and even destructive control patterns and societal structures that waste and drain energies?
  • Shiva the destroyer / rebuilder can be invoked to help us move through the transformation.
  • What sustains us deep down, through change and evolution?
  • How can we work well (with least effort) with time and natural resources (esp. our inner resources)?
  • Sitting on the fence all too long, and trying to coordinate with everyone can be paralyzing.
  • Maybe a sudden breakthrough kicks us into the NEW?!


VENUS is now stationary in mid ARIES, and
will go retro on March 4 (until Apr 15), which will help us shift from being so oriented towards others (VENUS ‘Evening Star’ has a LIBRA undertone: pleasing, comparing, copying, judging) to finding our intrinsic value, and attract from there (VENUS ‘Morning Star has a TAURUS undertone)!

Maha Shivaratri 2017 – Releasing, Surrendering, and Jumping through the Ring of Fire!

23 Feb

Maha Shivaratri is the big yearly festival dedicated Lord Shiva, most revered deity in Hinduism, and ‘patron’ of Yoga, meditation, Union with the Formless.

 

shivaratri

Lord Shiva

 

Shivaratri is celebrated in remembrance of “overcoming darkness and ignorance” in life and the world.
In Piscean mode, let’s connect to festivals of yearly Astrology related cycles – if we feel an inner resonance, and receive a benefit! ❤
This year, Feb 24 / 25 is the sacred night (ratri) dedicated to Shiva . It is believed that in this ‘moonless night’ – the night before the New Moon, Lord Shiva performed the dance of destruction and re-creation.

If you are inspired to tune into Shiva energy, esp. as a practicing Yogi/ni you might also be interested in watching the documentary “Naked in Ashes”.

Shiva Nataraja – the Dancing Shiva

 

And since we are now also in the phase of the Dark Moon – the ‘Crone Moon’ (last days before the New Moon on Feb 26, as the sliver has disappeared in the heavens) it’s time to go inwards, release and surrender to the forces and gifts of life, out of which the natural course of action may arise, with the NEW MOON.

Even more so, since the PISCES NEW MOON will be a ‘Ring of Fire’ Solar Eclipse with MERCURY and NEPTUNE – releasing fabrications of the mind, and surrendering into the big mystery!
Jumping through the ‘Ring of Fire’!
So much ARIES energy follows – radical renewal!
The newly waxing ‘Shiva’ Sliver MOON will enter fiery ARIES on MoOnday Feb 27 (at 8:52 pm PST, meeting with VENUS, MARS, and URANUS. Time for emergence and energetic new beginnings, after the Piscean ultimate surrender. A breath of Spring, and great time for vibrant new energy to come forth.

* The SUN crosses the Kuan Yin Point, and enters PISCES, on Feb 18: Coherence and Compassion.

18 Feb

This is the time of year when Aquarian Air turns into PISCEAN Water.
This morning, Feb 18 at 3:31 am PST, the SUN entered PISCES.

It’s the time-of-season in the Northern hemisphere when frosty Aquarian ice crystals and snow melt, and the Winter gets ‘washed out’….. More rain? Maybe… (not everywhere on Planet Earth of course).

Definitely a time to connect in Humanity (AQ) and know that we’re all in this together (hence I call it ‘Coherence Point’). In a group it’s the vibe of tuning into the shared ‘field’.

The 2015 Chinese New Year on that point inspired me to call this cusp also ‘Kuan Yin Point’, since she is the Goddess of Love and Compassion for all of Humanity. A good time to invoke her (any time of course).

The SUN will be in PISCES until March 20, and connect there with NEPTUNE on March 1, with CHIRON on March 14, plus the PI New Moon on Feb 26 will be an Annular ‘Ring of Fire’ SOLAR ECLIPSE (path goes over South America / South-West Africa)!
A huge planetary field in PISCES then, with MERCURY (entering PI on Feb 25), South Node, SUN, MOON, NEPTUNE, and CHIRON!  Stay tuned for an Astro~News blog post!

PISCES, the last Water sign, last Winter sign, and last sign of the Zodiac supports ‘endings’, surrendering, letting go, and being ‘neutral’. What may come our way when we’re in that vibration we can easily meet with LOVE, and whatever is not a good match can be released with LOVE, with ease and flow.

A new cycle follows, from the Spring Equinox (March 20) on.

The ‘Ring of Fire’ Annular Solar ECLIPSE in early PISCES on Feb 26 helps us with ‘washing out’ and re-balancing in a much bigger way what the LEO / Regulus / VIR – AQ FULL MOON on Feb 10 has been preparing us for.

Have you been feeling its effects (usually in the month before, if not longer), and welcoming the ‘karmic gifts’ it offers?
* Clearing residual ‘chaos’ / overwhelm (South Node / NEPTUNE in PI)
* Re-aligning with integrity (VIR), to radiate our authentic Self (LEO).
