Countdown to April’s Grand Cardinal Cross!! Week 1: 4/1-4/8: Sun, Uranus, Pluto and Mars Couples’ Dance

Image

 

 

Astro notebook:

midnight tonight, sun-uranus conjunct at 12 Aries; after that the sun will move a degree a day through aries, hitting 25 at the lunar eclipse, and already at 2 taurus for the grand square. Uranus will inch fractions of a degree a day until it arrives around 13’37” for the grand square on 4/22

what else? tomorrow mercury quincunx mars retrograde at 21 Libra/Pisces. Quincunx highlights the disjointed energies of two signs with little in common and offers a chance to bridge. Pisces is about the undifferentiated other and the urge to self-sacrifice, Libra is about balance and justice and guidelines of cooperation between distinct parties. Libra characterizes the seventh house of relationships; Pisces the last house of the subconscious. They are actually very deeply related and intertwined, and the quincunx offers the possiblity of infusing relationship with divine energy that underlies all Love.

later in the day, quick-moving mercury trines Saturn in Scorpio at 22 Pisces/Scorpio, a nice water trine. the benefits of that sewn in the day will be reaped by the waters of intuition, realization, purification and connectivity across timelines.

on april 3 we hit a major milestone for the grand cross that is the big story of 2014 and has been forming since january. april 3 features a perfect square between the sun and pluto at 13 degrees. this is also the degree of the grand cross! so we have the sun essentially prepping the pad for uranus to launch from. the sun and pluto brings out a different dynamic than uranus and pluto; the sun sheds light on things, while uranus ‘twirls’ that light. sun-pluto square for those who have it in their charts, involve, on a personal level, constant misunderstandings around issues of self-expression and power, and deeper conflicts between the soul’s power that does not need to be proven, and the ego’s travails in the world of worth, expression, and growth. ultimately the troubled soul finds that there is a bridge between ego and soul through expression. when uranus comes along in three weeks, it will provide the kick of inspiration, transcendence, and the sense of As Above So Below to take the whole saga way, way, way beyond ego and give us moments of lifetimes, openings to higher worlds always latent in the backdrop.

on friday venus and the node trine and past life and soul contract tropes are available through mental and creative avenues, and dreams too. the next day venus moves into pisces and these could become more vivid throughout the month. (and why are dreams so intense right now??) mercury too will trine the node and messages from other realms are at an all season-high. mercury then moves into aries, raising the possibility that our active dream life and dippings into other realms will begin to unfold in the physical realm in which we find ourself, and through the grand cross, spirit will become flesh.

a week from today, the sun will be exactly opposite mars at 18 degrees aries/libra. this is the next big milestone of this month, after april 3rd, of the tightening grand cross. the sun is moving forward through the zodiac; mars is moving backwards due to perceived retrograde motion. they meet at 18, which happens to be the sidereal degree of the cross (in mutable signs). 18 is the number of life, equaling CHAI in Hebrew. 18 of each sign is the LIFE-FORCE of each sign. in chasidic thought we learn, the life force of a thing is the divine breath in it. so each 18 point of a sign is the navel so to speak into which G-d breathed intentionality into the energies of the sodiac that make up the spiritual blueprint of this world. from the 18 emanates and to the 18th flows, in a Torus movement.

this point is adjacent to the grand cross, slightly past its mark, but due to mars retrograde, the life force or origin point of libra and aries will be brought into the cross. this will center around the point from which self and other diverge, the game that is owning the creation of your reality.

February-in-waiting: the dance of the sun and Mercury retrograde and the debt ceiling delay

Update: It looks like the debt ceiling has been suspended until the Ides of March. I’m making slight changes to the post to account for how the transits this month could play into what us happening behind the scenes, since the can has been kicked down the road, yet again.

Business Insider reports:

House Republicans will hold a special meeting Monday night [February 10th] to determine their path forward on the debt ceiling, and it’ll be crucial for a deal before the Feb. 27 deadline.

The next morning, Tuesday, February 7th, the sun squares Saturn at 23 Aquarius/Scorpio @ 9am. Boehner announces he’s ready to go along with a suspension deal with no policy strings attached.

Let’s look at some important landmarks this month (full January-April aspect list here).

Friday February 14th features a full moon at 26 Leo/Aquarius. Then, the next day, on Saturday, the sun will be conjunct Mercury at 12:21pm–which are the same numbers – 12 degrees 21 minutes – as the inferior conjunction of the sun and Venus on January 11th. For those who have been watching, that was the beginning of the intermediate age which will usher in the age of Aquarius. For those who have eyes to see, the changes are already underway and accelerating at a dizzying pace.

Remember, Mercury is in retrograde, which is what “enables” it to meet the sun again, this time in Aquarius. Mercury and the sun were last “even” back at the end of December in Capricorn. Mercury entered Capricorn on December 24th, three days after the winter solstice. Since meeting the sun on the 28th, Mercury has been making its way ahead of the sun through Capricorn, Aquarius and Pisces, until it went retrograde the day before the Olympics at 1:44p.m at 3 Pisces. Mercury’s current retrograde brings it back through Aquarius until it meets the sun on the full moon / Valentine’s Day at 27 Aquarius.)

At the same time as the sun-Mercury retrograde conjunction on Saturday, a 62-hour maintenance shutdown of a Social Security Administration computer system will commence, according to Yahoo news:

The Social Security computer system will be down from 3 p.m. EST (2000 GMT) on Saturday until 5 a.m. EST (1000 GMT) on Tuesday, February 18, CMS said.

Interestingly, the 18th features an important astrological landmark as well, even though it refers not to any celestial body’s position but rather to a mathematical calculation important to upcoming eclipses. On the morning of the 18th, the lunar node enters Libra–a cardinal sign, setting eclipse themes to Libra/Aries and away from Taurus/Scoprio (sigh of relief). On a macro scale this involves struggles and resolutions relating to the I-You binary/trajectory. In a transcendant sense, the eclipses bring our original soul being closer to a harmonization of the needs of the ego and the soul for freedom and peace.

Yet even more compelling perhaps is the Mercury-Saturn square on the 18th at 23 Aquarius/Scorpio, at 11:11pm on Tuesday night (PST). The Aquarius-Scorpio square was featured in the Sun/Saturn square which opened this post, framing the meeting tonight (Feb 10th). Sparks fly (in a dicey way) between Mercury’s love of speed and efficiency, and Saturn’s clamping down and closing doors.

A week later, with two days remaining before the “debt ceiling deadline” on the 27th, Jupiter squares Uranus at 10 degrees 33 minutes Aries / Cancer. This Jupiter-Uranus square is part of a sequence of the heavenly arrangement of a grand cardinal cross between Jupiter, Uranus, Mars and Pluto which will become exact at 13 degrees on April 22, 2014:

Image

There are a few important things to note about this step towards the April square. The Jupiter-Uranus element of the square involves volatility and bubbles. At ten degrees, it heralds back to the first few weeks of January centering around 1/11 when those with eyes to see saw headlines which signaled a game-change. The last week of February will present itself as yet another chapter in an epic story going much further back than we knew, and reaching to futures even more far off than we imagined. This will accelerate even more when this square reaches 13 degrees and reveals itself even to the blind.

Finally, the day after the debt ceiling, Mercury again goes direct on the 28th at 18 degrees Aquarius. On March 1st, Mars goes into retrograde, starting the countdown to the April square, which will lock into place when Mars reaches 13 degrees Libra.

With the eclipses kicking off on April 15th and the square locking into place on April 22nd, all sides will be emboldened. What happens in this time should give those with eyes to see a very good sense for what is in store in the two-year eclipse period leading up to the jubilee year of 5777 and fireworks of 2017.

G-d bless!

New moon Aquarius / Rosh Chodesh Adar Alef (the 13th month) / Venus goes direct @ 13 Capricorn

Image

1/30 New moon @ 10 Aquarius – the new crescent will mark the new month of Adar I, the 13th month inserted into the calendar to align the solar and lunar cycles.

1/31 Jupiter (Cancer) square Pluto (Capricorn) at 12 degrees – a landmark towards the exact cross in April. Jupiter goes direct again on Mar 6 which allows for another exact square. Venus is close by at 13 Capricorn, where the exact cardinal cross will take place in April.

Venus Direct Yet Venus retrorgrade does not take Venus to 12 Capricorn where the Jupiter-Pluto square is taking place. Rather, 12 hours after the Jupiter-Pluto square, Venus goes direct again at 13*34′ Capricorn and begins moving ahead through the sign, moving towards the sun, trailing as the morning star, and retracing the route it has been on since late December.

Sun quincunx Jupiter 12 Aquarius/Cancer – the Jupiter-Pluto square is compounded by another uneasy aspect at the 12th degree, bridging fixed air and cardinal water.

Also on the 31st, Mercury the messenger enters Pisces the subconscious.

Jesus Statue In Rio De Janeiro Struck By Lightning, Christ The Redeemer Loses Finger – Yod / Finger of God at Aquarian Mercury on 1/19 Sunday Night

On January 19th at 8pm pst, the Sun enters Aquarius, the sign of man, messianic era, corresponding to Shevat and the face of Man on the chariot (merkabah). This sign can go either way; man can ‘fly too close to the sun’ like Icarus and fall due to hubris, falsely crossing the boundary of spirit and flesh, or man can be resurrected from temporal physicality and access the higher dimensions of messianic consciousness and transcend the boundaries of time and space like Rabbi Akiva did when he entered the Pardes and left in peace. This trajectory played out in the dynamics of comet ISON (I-Sun/Son) and we are still watching to see how the story ends.

An hour after the sun enters Aquarius, as the moon rises in Virgo, (Israel/woman of the apocalypse) near Regulus (king star), there will be a brief “Yod” / Finger of Destiny (green dotted lines in the chart below), pointing at Mercury in Aquarius in the 5th house (the ‘seeding’ messianic consciousness), as the rising moon in Virgo (illuminated female receptacle) sextiles with Jupiter/Sirius in Cancer (our cosmic cousins, at the gate of Man).

Image

On Thursday night the “Finger of God” fell to earth after lightning struck the Christ the Redeemer statue in Rio. On Thursday the fifth portion of Yitro is read, which includes the verses: “I am God your Lord, who brought you out of Egypt, from the place of slavery. Do not have any other gods before Me. Do not represent [such] gods by any carved statue or picture of anything in the heaven above, on the earth below, or in the water below the land.” (Exodus 20:2-4)

Image

The Yod on Sunday night, first reading of Parshas Misphatim, the gateway to the most esoteric part of the Zohar, in light of the alignment on Rosh Hashana 2017 (5778):

On 9/20/17 Rosh Hashanah 5778 Virgo is clothed with the Sun, the Moon is in close conjunction with the sun, and there is an alignment of Jupiter, the Moon, Mercury, Mars, Venus, and Regulus, with Venus in conjunction with Regulus.

We watch the heavens to live in the present, in the light of the future, which the righteous live in, past, present and future.

‘Thus hath R. Johanan said: in the generation when the son of David [i.e., Mashiach] will come, scholars will be few in number, and as for the rest, their eyes will fail through sorrow and grief. Multitudes of trouble and evil decrees will be promulgated anew, each new evil coming with haste before the other has ended.’ (Sanhedrin 97a)

The seven year cycle:

Our Rabbis taught: in the seven year cycle at the end of which the son of David will come-in the first year, this verse will be fulfilled: And I will cause it to rain upon one city and cause it not to rain upon another city; in the second, the arrows of hunger will be sent forth; in the third, a great famine, in the course of which men, women, and children, pious men and saints will die, and the Torah will be forgotten by its students; in the fourth, partial plenty; in the fifth, great plenty, when men will eat, drink and rejoice, and the Torah will return to its disciples; in the sixth, [Heavenly] sounds; in the seventh, wars; and at the conclusion of the septennate the son of David will come (the first year of the next Shmita cycle). R. Joseph demurred: But so many septennates have passed, yet has he not come! — Abaye retorted: Were there then [Heavenly] sounds in the sixth and wars in the seventh! Moreover, have they [sc. the troubles] been in this order!

The fiftieth year – Yovel:

Yovel carries three meanings – “Ram’s horn“, “Jubilee” and “to be carried”. The time will come when we will be “yoveled”, carried off, to our eternal resting place; to HaShem.

Full Moon Cancer / Tu Bishvat / Beginning of a New Cycle

Full Moon in Cancer, 4:52am GMT on Jan. 16th @ 25* 58″ Cancer/Capricorn

Image

* Grand Cardinal cross: Mars-Vesta, Venus-Pluto-Sun, Jupiter, Uranus. This cross began Christmas eve and will last through Passover/April 2014/1st Blood Moon, but this instance of it features a fairly close and brief Mars-Venus square, just before Venus becomes the morning star on the 17th. Potent energy.
* The rising sign/ascendant of this chart is conjunct with the fixed Star Antares, the heart of the Scorpion, invested with ancient, subconscious messianic anticipation.

* Saturn presents a cooling, balming effect on the hard square aspects, suggesting that with teachings and emotional maturity one can elevate the aspects and gain insight from these times.

Via End of Days:

while the “9 months” of Geulah b’Rachamim apparently began… last Av [August 2012] and ending during Pesach [March 2013],

the “9 months” of Geulah b’Din, which ends next Sukkot [September 2014], begins next week just before Tu B’Shevat [January 15/16, 2014].

It should be noted that due to the fact that this Hebrew year has a 13th month beginning on the next new moon, the budding of the trees may not occur until the following full moon.

This entire year since Rosh Hashana has featured a ‘doubling’ of epochs in which we are not sure which month we are truly in. This will be realigned after the 13th month and the vernal equinox, 1 Nissan, April 1st 2014 (4/1/14).

This may give reason to examine a similar chart the next full moon in alignment with these prophecies:

Full Moon in Leo, 12:52am GMT on Feb. 14th @ 26* 13″ Leo/Aquarius

Image

By the next full moon, the grand cross has dis-assembled for a short window. The sun and Mercury are in range of Netpune and Chiron, coming closer to what will be a Solar-Neptunian conjunction on Feb 23rd, and a Solar-Chiron conjunction on March 3rd, shedding light on the deep waters of subconscious awakening that have been occuring since the confluence of Neptune and Chiron in Pisces in recent times.

This February full moon chart also features a tight t-square between Jupiter, Pluto-Venus and Uranus, without the fourth corner of Mars and Vesta in Libra. However the aspects between Jupiter, Uranus and Pluto-Venus have become tighter.

In conclusion, each of these full moon charts represents incremental tightening of the gears of the grand cardinal cross that will again appear tighter as a result of these incremental changes, after the vernal equinox on the eve of the first blood moon.

Also, the Leo/Aquarius Full moon brings in a decisively golden-era and shift-focused illumination to this process, with the moon in Leo drawing memories from ancient times and the sun in Aquarius awakening the relevance of ancient texts and prophecies for our times, finding the right balance of what to reap from the harvest, what to cast away, and how to step into unprecedented times.

These months ahead present an unprecedented buildup sequence to the eclipse sequence that sets off after the vernal equinox. All is in place by the 1st of April, and these next four months lay the inner groundwork for the outer transformation.

*The date 4/13/14 features significantly in the following video (see previous post):

Yom Kippur: Consummation of the Alchemical Marriage; 4-5 Tishrei/Venus-Moon Conjunction: The First Wave of Uncovering

Turner_-_The_Burning_of_the_Houses_of_Parliament

The energies of 5774 are here, and our system is experiencing them whether we can keep up with processing them, or not. It may be necessary to slip into other modes of experiencing reality such as meditation, prayer, ecstatic creative states, etc in order to truly fathom what is occuring to our multidimensional selves. Something that has been brewing and brimming over on the inside is now making its traces and marks on the outside, bafo’al mamash. Three-dimensional reality is on its way to becoming obsolete, but the very raw materials of three-dimensional reality–the sounds, sights, smells and angles, will be the language through which the true awe of Hashem – All That Is – will be communicated for every living being to grasp and worship out of nothing less than innate joy, love and awe of the heart.

We are now halfway between Rosh Hashana and Yom Kippur. The inner point of the soul has  crowned G-d as King anew, and this assertion is translating and percolating down through our myriad layers of consciousness. By Yom Kippur we the bride (looking in the mirror, she can be either one) will be ready for her groom, ready for the harmonization of energies that will create the seamless continuum between physical and spiritual that will prepare the world for the great revelations that are coming. The delay is only for the sake of the natural process of enlightenment to take place in one additional soul, perhaps in your field of influence, to realize the truth of existence on one’s own before the revelation is so great that it happens instantaneously, with less individual merit. This is because those who have an inkling of what is coming before it comes, will derive that much more joy from the process of being a participant behind the veil of the process of concealment being revealed, which is according to the divine worlds the greatest joy that exists, the reason for which will also be part of the revelation, why things have been hidden, what benefit there is in the process of which we are part. Use this time, certain of what is coming, to prepare yet another feature of your surroundings, to be fit for the arrival of the Bride, for the human world and all the mulitiplicity it contains to be a proper vessel for the highest heights of divine bliss that are about to become manifest in our spheres. We are a part of this process and have been chosen to do so, do not doubt your importance or the great merit of being here now to witness and usher in the age for which the greatest of sages have wept many nights to see pass and to be included in its holy birth, which will please G-d be easy & quick.

For more information on how your divine imprint as manifest in your astrological chart will experience the shift, please contact me. You may donate after you have received a response if I am able to provide something of value to you.

P.S. Regarding current events: The world war narrative is a flipside of the potential for grand and utter transformation that is possible on a moral and spiritual plane inside our own selves and our spheres of influence, unlocked by the key of our true acceptance of the greatness of our mission, in complete bittul or oneness with All That Is, that which enlivens us incessantly through our individuality. When we step into this the war will be no more, there will be no opponents, because all will have returned to Source. Most of what we observe is for our own process, prevent harm where you can, and hear the divine communication in every step. Shana tova, gmar chatima tova, may you be inscribed & sealed in the Book of Life. Life is the beginning of all good things.

 

4-5 Tishrei/September 8: The first wave of uncovering

moon-venus-september-8

Source: Sky & Telescope

Sun Sept 8 (9/8) 1:44pm PST Venus Conjunct Moon @ 27 degrees 13′ Libra –

An initial wave of uncovering in the preparation of the Bride for consummation:

Rabbi Yose said: who is the beautiful virgin who has no eyes, whose body is secret but yet revealed, revealed in the morning and secret during the day, and adorned with jewelry that does not exist?

She is, so to speak, as a beautiful maiden, who hides in the inner chambers of her palace, who has a lover that no one knows but her. Because of the love that he feels, he loiters constantly by door of the girl and wanders restlessly with his eyes. She knows that he is still there near her home, and what does she do? She opens a narrow window in her palace chamber and shows her face to him. The beloved is revived, knowing that the girl has sent a sign of her love, even if only for a moment.

So is the Torah that reveals it innermost secrets only to those who love her; its elusive revealing stirs up the love of its lover. At the beginning, when Torah begins to speak to someone, it gives him allusions. If man understands and acknowledges it, good. Otherwise it sends for him, addresses him as “novice” and then says to his messengers: “Let all who are simple come in here!” she says to those who lack judgment. When he comes, the Torah begins to speak, at first from behind the curtain that it unfolds for him around its own words, so that they are in his measure (PSHAT).

Slowly he sees more and more: this is the so-called DRASHAH. After this the Torah begins to talk to him behind a fine cloth fabric, using riddles and parables, namely Aggadah. When at last the man can say he is in confidence with the Torah, then and only then she exposed to him face to face, telling him the secrets of the most inaccessible and mysterious ways, all the answers in her heart since immemorial time (SOD). Then the man is a true follower of the Torah, which may be called “Master of the House” (ba’al habayit) because she has revealed to him all her secrets, without keeping or concealing anything!

Then he realizes that indeed the words of the Torah is unacceptable to add or subtract anything, not even a sign or a character.

(Zohar II 94b-99b)
