Archetypal Astrology from Cathartes Aura…
To make sense of what is happening and why, it’s very instructive to look up. We’ve long forgotten how to look down (too painful) or look in (too difficult).
very powerful to view, and to feel. . . I’ve also felt the New Madrid Fault is being focused on, particularly since the massive bird & fish die-offs at the New Year.
there have been many small (2-3 point) clusters of quakes, almost daily – and having FEMA focused on “preps” adds to the dis-comfort, as they source foods and supplies for their camps. . .
since Uranus moved into Aries last friday, and the events triggered, I felt that I might share, for any interested, the powerful tensions of the upcoming Full Moon and hours that follow. . . (all dates & times are Pacific Daylight Standard btw)
the Moon will be full in Virgo/Pisces sun, at 29dg, which is the final degree before moving into Libra, and it’s a “super moon” the closest it has been to the earth for 18 years. . . anyone who works with emergency services for the public, irrespective of belief systems, will concur that full moons bring out the luna-cy in the people, and services are often stretched, to put it mildly. . . the Virgo archetype is healing, but usually experiences this through a crisis, created by focusing on “controlling” details to the detriment of the “whole” – Pisces represents the whole, every-thing, oneness, so the opposition of Virgo is a-part, seeking whole-ness.
so yes, this Moon is powerful, last degrees of a “crisis” sign that seeks to know itself as whole. . . an example might be “nationstates” which are imaginary lines drawn across the planet, lines that are arbitrarily shifted to suit those who believe themselves in control, and use force to maintain this ill-usion. . . the wholeness of the earth is evident, and about to be more focused on as change is sorely needed.
the Full Moon occurs at 11:10am PST. . . it will be quickly followed by the Moon moving from Virgo to Libra at 1:03pm, after which the Moon will oppose Uranus at 1:45pm – this is a tension between the archetypes of “Self” and “Other” and how they learn to “relate”- obvious tensions there. . . Aries is the God of War, of Warriors – Uranus in Aries is unpredict-able and seeks awareness of it-self as an Independent Entity – ME-first is self-discovery, and rarely respects Others, expecting each to be looking out for it-self.
the Moon in Libra, striving to balance the Yang energy of the Warrior will continue aspecting the planets in cardinal signs – just after midnight, early Sunday morning the Moon will square Pluto in Capricorn, then oppose Jupiter in Aries at 8:22am, conjunct Saturn in Libra at 12:27pm – and then the Sun will move into the spring equinox at 4:21pm PST, again a very strong Equinox signature this year, new “beginnings” that will continue to usher in planets moving into Aries – including Mars, the ruler of Aries, late on April 1st, and later, Venus on 21st April – by which time FIVE of the EIGHT planets will be in Aries, talk about emphasis!
also Mercury’s retrograde, which happens three times a year, will be in Aries, so it will spend a longer period in that sign than usual, putting emphasis on the ongoing events. . .
all in all, I would be surprised if the next week doesn’t bring more palpable shifts, and further events related to the Uranus ingress into Aries last friday. . . I share this not to scare-monger, or make “predictions” but because awareness can lessen “shocking” events, and these are in-tense times we are all moving through.
but oooh so sorely needed. . .
As she said, none of this is scare mongering. But to be able to see a curve ahead on the road allows you to shift gears, apply the brakes, turn the steering….. you get the picture. That is what all this “reading the signs” is about.
If we were truly and always in the moment, really and truly in the moment, that knowledge is moot, the past and what is coming is a part of the mix and all my actions will adjust perfectly. I also know this though, that fewer than .001% of us are living “in” the moment for less than .01 % of our lifetimes, much as we would like to believe to the contrary. Our individual and collective lives are testament to that fact. In fact, we are living in the Moment-um.
And what else can we do, given some foreknowledge?
My suggestion is to simplify. Really simplify our lives. Will address this more in a follow-up. Sometimes it’s hard to see the woods when stuck between the trees, the rocks and hard places…
Easy ones, especially in the immediately upcoming days:
1) Eat lightly and simply. It keeps your mind and body clear
2) Reach out to nature, any way you can. Walk in it, touch a tree, deeply, bless some water.
3) Re-read something that always gave you pause. My medicine is Beelszbub’s Tales to his Grandson by Gurdjieff. The mix of writing style, depth and breadth always give me pause.
4) Cover all the mirrors in your home. Why is a long topic (look at my post Mirror Mirror OTW for a hint)
5) Eschew Meat for now. No real pun intended there. The animal kingdom has been severely abused by us. Give it a rest. It will calm you down. Trust me on this. I quit completely 17 years ago, I speak from experience.
6) Keep the lights off as much as possible. Train your eyes and senses to function in a low-light environment. It will sharpen your instincts, make you “strain” a little
7) Speak less, or as little as you can. The waves of the mind-matter (Chitta Vritti in Sanskrit) need time to calm down.
8) Practice a practice, even if long forgotten. Even minutes a day
9) Hit the G spots 😉 Now now……. I meant Grace, Gentleness and Generosity
Be well and centered. it can only do you good, regardless of how and when events unfold…
*Hugs* all around….
