looking At Burning Man - Version 2

Quirky

Let’s honor the quirky;
the Moon half eaten
by ragged cloud  mouths,
the child thrown from home,
by chaos and ashes.

Who would remember
Hansel and Gretel had
the step mother been kind,
or the witch less hungry.

And who is not Hansel,
not Gretel, cruel mother,
cowardly father, ravenous witch,
All singer of songs!

A Vast Public Park!

Taurus Sun and Moon are meeting in a ‘vast public park’, according to their Sabian Symbol!   There they will celebrate the shared joys of May, the pleasures of Taurus energy, earthy, sensual, imbued with the beauty and love of Venus, ‘ruler’ of this sign. Taurus is fixed, marks the fire festival of Beltane,  and keeps an ancient reverence for the feminine, celebrated all over the ancient world 5,000 years ago, during the ‘Age of Taurus.’   This was a period of huge public processions and gatherings, when tribes met in peace during the season of Beltane to find love and comfort in each other’s presence.

The constellation Taurus marked the two halves of the year for many ancient people. Taurus contains the Pleiades and the Hyades, two important and highly visible star clusters.   At Beltane the Pleiades rise at dawn. At Samhain (late October), they rise at sun set. It’s hard for us to see these great wheels turn in the sky from season to season, but when we do they enrich our understanding of the meaning of change in our lives. Astrology, which came from ancient observation is one way to enjoy and interact with the turn of the cosmic wheel, and to remember that nothing stays the same, but is always in process of transformation.

Sun and Moon feel the action of Mars, Pluto, and Black Moon Lilith, from their position in another Earth sign, Capricorn.   Mars and Pluto make demands upon the luminaries in their Taurus embrace to manifest their love, because Capricorn demands material evidence.   We may also feel that strong energetic push to make something visible during this season of Venus, whether a new child or piece of art.   Black Moon Lilith is always a reminder of whatever we might choose to forget or ignore. Pluto is also the revealer of truth as we see week after week during this time of revealed sexual secrets.

But the planet most energized at the new Moon is Uranus.  Always on the move, electric, rebellious,  Uranus will move into the sign of Taurus later this day.   This might have a huge impact on earth energy since Taurus is very associated with the element of earth and there is the extra impact of a new Moon cycle. On the day Uranus went into the sign of Aries in 2011, Fukushima was struck by a huge tsunami, and nuclear plant melt down.   But Taurus is a sign of love of the earth. What if the entry of Uranus into Taurus on May 15, hours after the new Moon, becomes a moment of intense victory for the earth, a joyous appreciation shared by enough people to turn our self destruction into passionate appreciation of the beauty and grace of our home?

Despite all the heavy interaction between planets, asteroids and luminaries, between cosmic bodies visible and invisible, this new Moon, embraced and hidden in the light of the Taurus Sun contains the potential for a new way of seeing the world.  Love and kindness are always there, waiting for us to notice.

It’s Almost Time

It’s almost time.

almost time for the change in the light,

but almost time for the poor and weak

to reach out their trembling hands

to each other and to grasp.

It’s almost time for the kind to smile

and be seen

in all their glory,

for the shift in power.

 

It’s almost time for the silenced to sing,

and for the earth to receive the sweet rain

of justice as it falls on ploughed fields.

 

It’s almost time to be brave,

and to go the next step

without knowing how.

 

It’s almost time for the Moon

to rise in the dark sky and let us know

there is more than one way

to see the road ahead.

Moon talks to the fishes.

Each year at this time, the full Moon in Virgo is  opposite the Sun in Pisces.  Virgo Moon refines and rearranges emotions.  She needs a sense of order in the environment to be comfortable and at ease, and then she gets the work done. Pisces is a water sign, any form of organization is based upon the fluid memory of water.   Pisces is known for fog, illusion, spiritual impulse.  Virgo gathers in the harvest,  Pisces, the last sign of the zodiac, releases what is finished from the year’s cycle.  But here’s how they work well together: Virgo Moon can materialize the spiritual impulse of Pisces, and communicate it to the world at large.

This year the Sun is very close to Neptune, her modern ruler. A little further on we have Mercury, Venus and Chiron also in this mystic sign. Whatever luminosity was available from a Pisces Sun is fogged over with Neptune’s sea foam. To speak with Pisces is to release expectation.  Fish talk is wet and confusing. If Virgo Moon tries to hold a rational exchange with this mystical crew of planets in Pisces, she might do better with poetry.

Journey by Water       Sarah Fuhro

At night I ride my coracle,
to the dark shore, silver Moon

of the tree filled island,

where I will meet my dreams.

 

The last notes of twilight play out,

as I approach,
push myself forward,
in my round leather boat,

into the slender reeds,
the dark water washed shore.

I put aside the slender pole
no further use for rudder, for oar.

First I lower my human foot

into the cold wet,
sharp fanged swamp,
in a moment,

pause to recollect:
I carry with me, fish shoes,

silver scaled, soft as silk.

With these I know myself,

amphibious, and supple!

Both feet touch bottom,
and I push my coracle to shore.

 The full Moon in Virgo is a good time to analyze the dreams of Pisces. This is especially true this time because Neptune is close to the Sun, and the power of dreams, mystical experiences, music and poetry is doubly abundant. This degree of Virgo has a Sabian Symbol with the keyword: Unveiling. Neither beauty nor ugliness can be hidden during this full Moon. But to know which is beauty and which ugly is a task for the trained initiate.

Virgo is very much about hidden secrets, which allows the soul to work in seclusion.  Pisces is the perfect partner to penetrate the engima.  This full Moon become a visionary, a seer, a mystic, a poet, a channel to the hidden realms.

 An enigmatic figure, Black Moon Lilith, watches both Virgo Moon and Pisces Sun. She demands we give up expectation in exchange for letting wonder happen. Lillith is the frustration of women and the feminine in palpable form, when out of balance with the masculine. At this moment, there is a world wide transformation of the feminine in each of us and in social structures which are in a state of positive chaos.

The Virgo full Moon is already very beautiful several days in advance. Bask in her light; know that she is a harbinger of spring. The seeds of which Virgo gathered in the harvest season now fall upon the receptive wet earth of Pisces.  The mystery and poetry of this Moon will give us the key to the new season. The Sabian Symbol for the degree of Chiron explains what is happening behind the scene: ‘A fertile garden under the full moon reveals a variety of full-grown vegetables.’
