Posts Tagged ‘underworld’

This is the Full Moon of the Buddha celebrated worldwide.  The Buddha is thought to actually come to Earth in a Himalayan valley. Sitting as the Buddha, being grounded and centered, feeling completely aware of everything/nothing, having gentle compassionate wisdom, total peace, are what we seek. With two outer planets, Jupiter and Uranus, still in Aries, it might be more like Thich Nhat Hanh’s walking meditation, riding your bike long distance in the Zen of the flow.  But at the time of the Full Moon, there are FOUR planets in early Taurus, a stellium, starting with Venus, Taurus’s own planet, Mercury, then Mars, all three closely together in conjunction.  The Sun is last, at the end of Taurus.  Mars, Venus and Mercury are the planets associated with the first three signs of the zodiac, Aries, Taurus, Gemini, as if in summary of the three sacred festivals of the first three Full Moons of the year, Aries The Christ – Love, Taurus The Buddha – Wisdom, Gemini Humanity – The Word! 

Taurus sits on the rock, walks in focused prayer and silence stopping to listen, touch the trees, tip and sniff the flower now and then.  It is one with Nature, loves the touch of all its textures.  Barefoot on soil presses minute particle to particle, draining away hysterical fear, replacing it with a neutrality from the soil that allows you to be free to see simplicity.  A Tao Te Ching phrase that has been with me a long time is ‘Do you have the patience to wait till your mud settles and the water is clear? Till right action arises by itself?’ 

Scorpio Moon?  Taurus is mine.  Scorpio is ours.  Sharing.  Mutual funds.  A gathering of resources from the deepest realms.  The Native American Underworld where power is sought, faced alone, Spirit your only Ally, imbued with a Sacred Trust.  The Greco/Roman mythological underworld of Hades.  Christian celibacy; tantric sexual intimacy, a merging beyond words.  The Pagan life sustaining storing of goods for winter sharing, a living reservoir of human connection.   

Goddess Mother Moon, GrandMother Moon, lights these ‘dark’ places as fully as She can, with her Night Light, a gentle, more bearable Light, than the Light of Day.  This is a time to look upon the silver strands that connect us, absorb their meaning.  What binds us?  Money, Love, genetics, nothing we can explain?  Is it time to step across the barriers, cross the threshold to the next level?  To return to our prime mission?  To let go and keep walking?

Walk it, share as you can.  I will be being mindful the evening previous the Full Moon, and the 17th, in planetary prayer.  The Sun and Jupiter will be in the degree of the Galactic Center.  Join me in Spirit if you wish.  By your grace.

Wishing you a Magical Yule, Winter Solstice!

Magic is afoot!  This Winter Solstice moment, 3:39 PM Pacific, is preceded by the Lunar Eclipse/Full Moon at 0:13 AM! 

TOTAL Lunar Eclipse VISIBLE just after midnight on the US westcoast – are you going to stay up to see it and wish the new year in?!  Many Earth Religion peoples will be doing just that!  Rain is forecast for some areas, but celebrate as you will – meditation, hot chocolate and a fire….  The Eclipse will be at 29 Gemini 21 with the Sun opposite in Sagittarius, an axis of mind and purpose.  How we think, what we think, what we pay attention to, how we gather information, how we express it, all affect outcome!  How we are able to learn limits or expands our range of effectiveness and sharing with others.  Without enough information and exchange of ideas, right on down the line, everyone loses.  If our attention wanders, we lose connection.  People feel that loss and wonder about your or their self esteem.  Our style of idea gathering taints or tantalizes, making people not or want to share with us again.  Our sharing style chokes the network, or invites joy and excitement of exchange!  You see?  And this is only the Gemini side of the Eclipse!

Sagittarius needs to know, so much, to have a fully informed, broad perspective, to choose the Living Truth, that changes as we grow!  Faith can be a fickle feature, because she too is a living thing!  Faith doesn’t just happen.  Faith is experienced, a product of a history of good choices, some your own, some of the people you trust.  Good choices may not make you wealthy, but they are true to you and your heart and Soul.  How you stand with you matters.  Without all the information, one makes choices that are short of the mark, never quite satisfying because something always feels awry, can’t quite put your finger on it.  So put those Geminis, or the Gemini part of yourself, to work.  Listen to them intently, help them focus where you need the info.  If it doesn’t feel like you have enough yet to make your decisions, send them out to bird dog more!  Then make wise choices for the Path you are traveling, the message you choose to publish.  Be continually wise, change when the input changes.  Expansion and growth are a powerful postures of a fully living Sagittarian!  It seems like luck, but forever the scanning observer in their far reaching adventures, it’s their kind of brilliance that saves them!

Yule, Winter Solstice is a grand time to snuggle, but keep your eyes wide open for the possibilities that grow from the root dark in Winter’s Night.  Many a profound insight springs from the eternal internal, a mere candle flicker only glimpsed, sometimes during a whimper.  We might be sad, we might feel like steel, but it comes.  The underworld has always been well respected, often feared, a testing place of Spirit, yet we come back more powerful, even if only quietly.  Power may be barking or whispering, yet it works.  This year, as since 2008, Pluto is near the 0 Capricorn Winter Solstice degree.  Pluto is the God of the Underworld, so this life and death, sharing and healing planet makes it all the more meaningful.  As many are suffering from financial losses, a time of sharing and creative healing springs, as the serpents on the Physician’s staff of Life, raising the Phoenix from its own ashes!   The Sun is always there, it’s just short days.  It may seem thinner, the light laid low across our skies, but still, it is there.  Never been anything wrong with slowing down, resting, noticing more of what is between the molecules.

The last degrees of a sign are always endings and beginnings.  The Eclipse is at 29 degrees, the last, and Solstice is 0 degrees, the first.  May your endings end well and beginnings be even better!  I wish you peaceful days.  I pray you take time to tell your love, appreciate the special in others, what’s good in you.  Happy Yule, Winter Solstice – Mama Earth’s New Year, and Eclipse!

Winter Solstice Day, Dec 21, I will post an overview of 2011!  There is much to come!

Sneak Preview! On April 29th through May 1st, 2011, the Moon, Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter and Uranus, 6 planets, will all be ON FIRE in Aries!  Unbelievable passion, magic of Spirit!  Your Mother is impatient, your pen is pissed and potent, your Lover is sweet HOT, careful not to run the red light, exercise is a no-brainer, the mighty Truth stands on its hind legs and bites, change is electrifying and defying, a challenge to be alone together!!!!

Happy Birthday, Scorpios!

Nov 19, 1961, Scorpio Meg Ryan!

Nov 19, 1961, Meg Ryan, actress & producer, has 2 children, one adopted from China, a daughter named Daisy True. Meg has Venus, Neptune, Mercury and Sun in Scorpio! Like a pixie Ninja guardian, Meg has been an active supporter of environmental protection programs.

Oct 23 Scorpio starts this year with 4 planets in Scorpio, the day after a Full Moon.  Sun, Mercury and Venus are together sextile Pluto Scorpio’s ruler, opposite the Moon in Taurus.  Mars is at 26 (the same degree as the Galactic Center) Scorpio squaring Neptune and Chiron in Aquarius, trining Jupiter and Uranus in Pisces!  Venus is still retrograde (see below please) until Nov 18.

Give or keep?  Share or dare?!  How to make more money, keep it safe, use it where it counts.  Venus still being retrograde means check things out further, shy away from ‘final’ decisions, especially in love and health matters.  Literally lots to think about, valuable information, but it won’t be the end of the story.  Angry misunderstandings may have a high price, with a need to reform on both sides.  Well educated friends, travelers or foreigners, out-of-the-box coaches, planners, may save the day with unique solutions!  Kindness, letting go of in-your-face eccentricities, surrender but not selling out, will be key.

Our VENUS retrograde of 41 days finishes Nov 18 when she turns Direct.  One of the most beautiful principles of retrogrades is the ability to, the divine opportunity of, going back, again and again, not giving up, returning.  This is so profoundly evidenced by the Chilean mine collapse and rescue of the miners.  Obviously, it isn’t always such sweet success, but in this case it was! 

Venus is love, and in Scorpio, the intense power of sharing and resurrection!  Worldwide lessons, how to do rescues better and better, collaborating, coordinating resources, the cross use of NASA space with Scorpio underworld mine techniques, are all perfect metaphors for what each of us must do for ourselves, and one to another, heart to heart, across the table, neighbor to neighbor, worker to worker, at Church, with strangers on our vacations. 

It is even noted some of the miners will have PTSD, Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, that they will need continued care.   Venus is love, Grace, and in Scorpio, healing, our psyche.  There is a good chance the men will get the care they need.  This is the very care we need to give ourselves for the hurts we have suffered, and to extend that care to others when and as we can.  See how, by going back, you have another opportunity to give your love in a good way.  Click here for more on this Venus Rx!

Scorpio, Safe Passage to 2012 

The Chilean miners were brought from dark to light, graphically illustrating this balance of night and day, that we so need, that Libra, the sign of going into the darker time of year, Fall Equinox, makes us more aware of.  The darkening time, more dark in Scorpio, is a vital part of our consciousness, where we clear our motivations, our past debris, what’s dead is jettisoned!  It is a place to knock on the doors of what is dormant, that lies well, but deeply within us, waiting.  Sure, there be the monsters of our child mind, but we can hold their hands if we ‘know’ them.  There are also seedlings, hidden healings, needing just a bit of TLC, fertilizing, to help them germinate.  Then, it is ‘Pop!’ just like the men from the mine, into the Light!

Sometimes the good in us has been hidden so long, we don’t know how to release it and use it.  Rather than clever sarcasm and subtle put downs that keep people safely at arm’s length, at first just stop yourself.  That can be so uncomfortable.  What could you do instead?  Look for one good thing you could say and see if you can own it.  What about it makes you uncomfortable?  What are you afraid might happen to you if you embraced that?  Would you be powerless?  Probably not.  But you didn’t even realize that!  Just an old habit.

Learning how to live in our own dark is a vital task.  When it is an emergency, when there are hard times, fears, the challenge is on!  Scorpio is no quitter, enjoys intense.  Whether it is sexual, financial, or psychological, Scorpio is not afraid to wade into the muck and clean up the mess.  Call them, the therapist, financial consultant, the specialist, no need to be alone.  We can always learn more.  Scorpio is the sign of quintessential sharing when life itself is at stake.  They midwife our babies; they help with the dying, and at death.  At these points there is no such thing as shame or blame, we are just in it together, doing life big.  If confidences need to be kept, Scorpios do.

So to live safely in your dark part, know yourself.  Clean up your Inner Self, your attitudes, your Spirit.  Share what you have to give; gather specific efficient guides and friends when you need them.  Know how to be safe with yourself.  Get ready for the Light!

From La Tercera Newspaper, Chile – Last Miner of 33 Rescued!

Aug 5, 2010, was just 2 days after the Aug 3 exact Jupiter square Pluto.  Jupiter rules funerals; Pluto rules death, the underworld, and resurrection, the Phoenix rising from its own ashes!  For 33 miners, the lights went out at 2 PM.   Edison Pena, the 12th miner to the surface, said in a letter to his girlfriend he wanted to ‘see the sun’

The coordinates of the San Jose Mine are 27 S 09 37, 70 W 29 48.   

Today, 69 days later, the miners are incredibly returned to the surface, into the LIGHT, by their rescue capsule, the Fenix, in English, the Phoenix!  Many of the rescue techniques were the same as used by NASA in space, and were brought by NASA, combining heaven and earth.  Oct 13, 2010, the first miner to the surface was Florencio Avalos, at 00:11 AM CLDT/AST.

Some highlights of the Aug 5 chart
The Aug 5 chart had a mighty configuration, 6 planets in a T square.  Venus, Saturn and Mars are in Virgo and Libra on one side.  Saturn and Mars together are pressures.  In Aries on the other side, were Jupiter and Uranus.  Both of them are motion planets, Uranus like a humming frequency, Jupiter amplifying it.  At the point of the T was Pluto, planet of extremes, dark, death, underworld/healing, resurrection!  Jupiter and Uranus, indicate luck, publicity, worldwide.  They were in the 4th house of the chart, the place of outcomes.  Uranus rules surprises!  Five of the outmost planets and Chiron were retrograde, indicating going back, again and again, not giving up, returning.  Mother Moon’s final aspect, in Gemini (communications), was a trine (flow) with Chiron, the wounded healer/teacher, at 29 degrees, the final degree of a sign, in Aquarius.  Aquarius rules flight and freedom.  Aquarius is Uranus’s sign, Uranus the planet of the unexpected!  What seemed apparent tragedy became a miracle.

August 5, 2010 Chile - San Jose Mine Collapse

Important points in the chart of the first miner safely surfacing
As the first miner, Florencio Avalos, surfaced, Mama Moon was at 29 degrees Sagittarius, the point exactly sextile (opportunities), the 29 Aquarius where Chiron was on Aug 5!   And Mama Moon was only 3 degrees from Pluto, the planet of death and resurrection, the one at the point of the T square in the Aug 5 chart!  Pluto was right at the Descendant, the place of relationships in our charts, in this case, being restored!  The Ascendant was 0 degrees, new beginnings, Cancer, the sign of home and family, nurturing emotions.  Their story becomes all our story as Mama Earth held them in her womb, then gave them up to live, as if reincarnated.  “I have changed, I am a different man,” said Mario Gomez, the ninth to be rescued and, at 63, the oldest of the group.  Undoubtedly, they, ones close to them, all of us who live their new glory with them, will let go of some of our petty choices, be cleansed of toxic debris in our lives, live on in cleaner awareness, make more of a difference.

Chile, San Jose Mine, First Miner, Florencio Avalos, at Surface!

NBC said:  ‘The foreman who held the group together when they were feared lost was the last man out. Luis Alberto Urzua was hoisted to safety [9:55 PM] in a joyous climax to a flawless rescue that captivated the world.’

Though they have their lives, medics say some of the men are psychologically fragile and may struggle with stress for a long time after their rescue.  Please continue to send your prayers for them and their loved ones.  These men have lived for us.

God bless you all.
