The Year of the Horse gallops closer. At his approach, we can feel the thump of his hoofs in tune to our heart’s rhythm.    The horse is no longer our daily companion.  Yet his size, and power are still reflected somewhere inside us.  He arises like the Sun on a winter morning.  He is the waves pounding on the shore. Nothing can stop him, yet we have the power to rein him in. He is our transport to the Otherworld.  Horse represents both the power of life and the inevitability of death.

tarot-sun

On Thursday, January 30th at 4:38 pm, the Year of the Horse begins with the moment of the new Moon in Aquarius.   Don’t be afraid to feel the horse you ride, and to let him have his freedom to take you into the future.

The Chariot

Sun and Moon are in the sign of Aquarius, a constellation connected to the future or to whatever in the present feels: ‘futuristic,’ modern, high tech, scientific, in interesting contrast, both individualistic and humanistic.   Aquarius is the special province of science and astrology and computers.  It is the vision we have of our potential as individuals, and as a society, or species.   The Sabian Symbol for the degree where Sun and Moon have met asks us to take a moment to meditate and listen to our guides and to our own potential for growth and inspiration ‘During a silent hour, a man receives a new inspiration which may change his life.  The need to rely upon inner inspiration and guidance at the start of new developments.’  (Dane Rudhyar,  An Astrological Mandala).  

New Moon January 30:14

This chart of the new Moon has a number of powerful relationships between planets, which challenge us to remember there is a difference between power and force.  The ongoing square between the Uranus (a co-ruler of Aquarius) and Pluto, lord of the Underworld is a case in point.  This aspect is the signature of the exciting times we are sailing through, with ties to the period of the 1960’s when Uranus and Pluto were in conjunction.   Once more we are feeling the ground shake under our feet as these two outer planets demand change.

Venus and Jupiter are also involved, with Jupiter in opposition to Pluto and Venus as well as square to Uranus. Here we have a mixture of highly influential planets all lined up to tell us we must question the way we look at the world and how we react to challenge.  This combination may raise our vibratory level  (Uranus) to the point where we feel we are about to take off for outer space, while Pluto and Venus pin our hopes and aspirations to the sweet earth (Venus) and to the Underworld (Pluto), so that we are forced into introspection The combination of the planet of love (Venus), and the planet of whatever cannot be avoided (Pluto), spells out the power of love to overcome what looks impossible to conquer.

Jupiter in Cancer at the third angle of this T-square is there to remind us we are all one family.  We must use gentle power (Mars in Libra) to open the complicated lock on the door to the future we are about to enter. The door cannot be forced; it must be entered with gentle care.

Mercury is about to leave rational Aquarius to enter heart felt Pisces with a visit to Neptune in the next few days. Communication may take a turn for the mystical, the universal or the illusory.      Saturn moving through the sign of Scorpio, continues show us our darkest fears are only a reflection in a mirror.

Strength Card

The Strength Card from the Rider Waite Tarot Deck is a good illustration of this moment in time.  We are ready for a next step in accepting and using our power, but it must channeled into a loving partnership with our animal fire, or, we will destroy ourselves.   The Woman and the Lion pictured here are Virgo and Leo.  The tempering finesse of Virgo and the powerful heart centered Leo come together to create the Sphinx, the ancient symbol of wisdom and eternity.

Where do poems come from?

They come from the Stygian depths,

arise from cracks in the earth,

where the words awaited

the deep winds to blow their way.

And who are we who wait

for these words?

Wait for the vapor

of their charcoal black appearance.

We who cannot eat or sleep

unless we visit the cracks where they arise.

Full Moon of January 15, 2014

With the bitter cold of early January, we felt the full impact of the Capricorn Sun accompanied by Pluto and Mercury, the keynotes of the January 1st new Moon.  That new Year, new Moon chart illustrated the theme of intense communication.  Did you find yourself embroiled in debate, or in poetic inspiration, or conversing with friends at a deep level of passion and honesty?  Did you begin a project that will take you into deep waters of emotion expressed in words:  a book, a letter long postponed, an important conversation?   And, while we may all have become wary and weary of resolutions to begin a new year, perhaps the energy from this particular fresh start, may actually carry us towards the goals we have envisioned.

Two weeks later, at the full Moon, the Sun has his eye clearly focused on his queen.  The Moon is in Cancer, the sign she rules and illuminates.  She rides high as full Moon each year opposite Saturn’s Capricorn Sun.  The Sun in Capricorn is considered in ‘detriment,’ but perhaps we can transcend the ‘ruler’ and ‘detriment’ labels to see the luminaries sharing their combined wisdom. The full Moon is always the opportunity to develop our ingenuity in bipolar understanding.  The sensitivity and feeling nature of the Moon in Cancer sheds light on Capricorn’s urge to be grounded in earthy manifestation.  The Capricorn Sun is all about institutions and structures; Cancer suggests we try to treat each other as members of an ever-evolving family.

The low lying winter Sun in Capricorn sometimes seems extremely bright because he never rises very high in the sky and may be reflected off the white snow.   The high flying Moon in Cancer speaks of the frozen seas of the Northern Hemisphere, while blessing Southern beaches with her mysterious light.   Both are in square to Vesta and Ceres, two asteroids who have come to our attention as we awaken to the shared pain of our earth, who reels from exploitation, greed and neglect, and strikes back with powerful surges of extreme weather conditions. How have we come to separate ourselves from our matrix, planet earth?   Vesta asks: what is our commitment to our body, our home, our hearth.   Ceres is Demeter, the mother who lost her daughter to the realm of Pluto and mourned winter into existence.  As modern people we may have forgotten the power of Ceres, but we are a part of her and her suffering is felt by us all.

While the Sun and Moon are in counter balance so are Jupiter in Cancer, opposite Pluto and Venus in Capricorn.   Pluto entered Capricorn at the same time as the financial ‘meltdown’ in 2008, and travels slowly, but relentlessly through that sign.  When Senator Markey, born in the sign of Cancer, says in front of Congress that Capitalism does not support our population, you know the times are changing. Since Capricorn is very much about corporate and government structures, and Pluto always shows us the malfunction of whatever sign he visits, all this makes perfect sense. Capricorn knows how things should be built to last, but Pluto demands that the teardown of old structures has to take place before new foundations can be laid. Capricorn builds the house, Cancer turns it into a home.  Cancer is about the eternal structure of the family, which as banks and government institutions appear to be floundering, becomes the support system of all those who have been abandoned by the contract between worker and employer, while at the same time, the social safety net is threatened. The problem is that families may also be highly dysfunctional with Pluto in Capricorn.  This may be the opportunity to remember that as earth’s children, we always have a home, complete with a huge extended family.

Much of the chart is involved in an ongoing grand cross in the cardinal signs.  A shift is pushed in these signs, the locations of the seasonal changes. Uranus in fiery Aries (sign of the spring equinox)  demands  we listen to the transformational possibilities all around us.  Jupiter and Moon in Cancer (sign of the summer solstice) balance Uranus’ fiery rhetoric with the emotional truth that resides in the element of water.  Mars, Vesta and Ceres dwell in airy Libra (the fall equinox) and remind us of balance and justice.  And of course, Sun Venus and Pluto in Capricorn (the winter solstice) are there for responsible and well-grounded earth element stability.

We can’t finish without a look at Saturn, the power behind the throne.  Saturn is the ruler of Capricorn and is in trine to Cancer Moon and in sextile to the Sun.  He’s in the depths of Hades in Scorpio, reminding us that there are important layers below, or beyond those visible on the physical plane.  He injects the mystery of the underworld, a place as busy and full of evolutionary impulse, as what we call our world.

How all the animals become nocturnal—

Nocturnal happened when there was no room

by day for foxes, for owls for moles or voles.

All the daylight was consumed by people,

who stay in at night, watch TV and sleep.

In the daytime folks rush here and there,

digging, spraying, cutting, and pointing.

They drive cars, pedal mountain bikes

and walk well worn paths with their dogs.

But they have no truck with darkness.

Animals are now best able to roam under stars.

Even beavers, those busy engineers,

work silently all the night long shift.

Coyotes turn in at dawn, dark shadows,

who work the quiet suburban street in lamplight.

Deer may venture out in sunlight,

but they save their important work for night.

While possum is the ghost who reminds us

that we don’t know the half of it.

Full Moon in Gemini 2013Full Moon image for 12:17:13

http://fightforrhinos.com/tag/full-moon

On Tuesday, December 17 at 4:28 EST, we have a full Moon in Gemini face to face with Sun in Sagittarius. The Sun is conjunct Gemini’s guiding planet, Mercury.  So these opposing signs are working together quite nicely. The full Moon takes place with the Sun a few degrees from the Galactic Center (27 Sagittarius), a natural focus upon the earth at this moment.  This is an opportunity for spiritual messages, and communication about spirit! It’s an opportunity to take stock of beliefs and their impact.   Sagittarius and Gemini love to explore and express their beliefs, but in quite different ways. Sagittarius likes to explore by participation, while Gemini may be more involved with the intellectual construct of those beliefs.   Sagittarius can be the very essence of particular beliefs, and for that reason is sometimes called the sign of the priest.   When this sign is working well, there will be great curiosity about, and tolerance of other people’s beliefs.  When Sagittarius gets dangerous, it is because the very enthusiasm of Sagittarius has lost connection to the spirit, which was the attraction in the first place.  Spirituality needs to offer a structure but not a strait jacket to our lives.

The Gemini Moon, which like all full Moons is exactly opposite the Sun, challenges the Sagittarius sureness about core beliefs and says: ‘what if……, and, can’t we explore this from an intellectual point of view.’  Gemini is quite often the spiritual butterfly (a symbol of Gemini), fluttering from one spiritual practice to another.   Now they are working together to remind us that our spirit needs sustenance as much as our body.

The Sabian Symbol for the Moon at 26 Gemini is very much in tune with the weather where I live in New England: ‘Frost covered trees against winter skies: the revelation of archetypal form and essential rhythm of existence.’

Juno is involved in this opposition.  She is in Aquarius with a sextile to the Sun and a trine to the Moon.  The position of women in society, in marriage, in the work place is once more under discussion.  Juno, was Jupiter’s wife, and some say her supplanter. Her blessing position in relationship to this Sun and Moon, suggests the importance of women’s role in the world will not stay fixed, but has evolutionary energy to expend.

There is another important opposition in this chart of the full Moon.   Mars in Libra is opposite Uranus, who is still in square to Pluto.   This combination can be quite a powerful force for destruction or construction, or both.   Mars in Libra may be conflicted in terms of what needs to be done for he is in a sign Venus rules, while Uranus in Aries is in a sign Mars rules.  It would be wonderful if the departure of Nelson Mandela during this phase shows us a new way to settle conflict in the world.  Mandela never backed down from the fight that was necessary to create a just society in his country. He also loved boxing, and like Mohammed Ali he spoke out for the truth about what was happening in an unbearable situation.  Mandela’s Mars is also in the sign of Libra. He was a loving (Venus/Libra) warrior (Mrs).   The restoration of justice and human rights was modeled in an entirely new way in South Africa.  At the time of Mandela’s election to prime minister, Mars was in Aries close to the degree Uranus now inhabits. Uranus will station direct after a period of appearing to move backwards. This is always a time of intense focus of action.  Is it possible that Uranus can now be the impetus to see this model of human relationship spread to other places of what looks like intractable conflict?

Full Moon in Ruis 2013

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.

The New Moon of Ruis gives the opportunity many of us need to rest and start anew after the whirlwind of the Thanksgiving/Hanukah celebration, the comet Ison’s journey to (or is it around) the Sun, and our collective reaction to the winds the earth has stirred up to remind us we live not only in our houses, but on a planet with powerful responses.

Sun and Moon are in the sign of Sagittarius, the seeker, who remembers that what we see is only a tiny slice of what exists. ‘Reality’ and ‘practicality’ are not meant to be the final judge of our life choices.  It is the Sagittarian part of ourselves, which has a vision larger than that which we have been handed by our particular culture.   We live in the midst of a vast mystery, and whatever tiny segment we observe is as large as a universe.

Sagittarius reminds us to shine our souls, a process not taught or respected in our culture.   The Sabian Symbol for the degree where Sun and Moon meet on Monday is: ‘In the left section of an archaic temple, a lamp burns in a container shaped like a human body.’  If no time is allowed for the process of shedding our light, we begin to flicker and fade no matter how successful we appear.  Each soul yearns for the opportunity to shine in her unique manner in our particular body. Each of us, when we live beyond the circumstances of our birth and past history, know where our truth lies, when our way is lit by our soul’s light.

Uranus, the lightening bolt of perception, makes a trine to Sun and Moon.  And wherever, Uranus is found, Pluto is connected as well by their enduring square to one another.  In this case Pluto makes an inconjunct to sun and Moon, perhaps challenging our perceptions, and demanding we look ever deeper.

Chiron the healer squares the two, and asks if our look within is of benefit to the world at large.

When we can truly feel that our soul’s health and freedom is the source of our peace, we will find the way we can best serve others as well.

elderberryhttp://www.go-self-sufficient.com/images/elderberry.JPG

Ruis the Elder is a plant of healing. You can find her easily when she is in bloom, often in wet areas.  Each time we go to the depths of darkness, we find the inner light we had thought lost.  Elder offers us care and protection from infection.   Here is a recipe for elder syrup which I make each fall to keep away winter colds and flues:

Herbalist Terry Anya Hayes:

As an herbalist, the finest remedy I know for flu is elderberry syrup. It stops many viruses from replicating (including Avian Flu). Sambucol is the pricey, commercially available version, but it is as easy to make your own as to make a pot of soup. Here’s my recipe. Add a few squirts of Echinacea tincture and you’ve further upped your chances against invasion. Raw garlic is a good antiviral also, for those who can take it without upset; elderberry tops everything I know of for flu virus, though.

Recipe: Elderberry Ginger Syrup

from Herbal Syrups and Remedies
© Terry-Anya Hayes 2007

Ingredients

3/4 cup dried elderberries

1 thumb-size chunk of fresh ginger, thinly sliced

1 quart spring water or filtered wate

2 cups honey (preferably raw & unfiltered)

Procedure

Place elderberries, ginger, and water into a non-reactive pan and bring to a boil. Reduce heat  and barely simmer until liquid is reduced to half its original volume. This takes time; be patient! Strain out solids, squeezing spent herbs to reclaim as much liquid as possible.Cool strained liquid to lukewarm, measure it, and add an equal amount of honey, stirring until dissolved. Refrigerate syrup in clearly labeled glass bottles. It will stay fresh 6 months or more.

Notes

Elderberry is a food, not a medicine, and is exceptionally high in antioxidants. For support, traditional herbalists suggest that at the first sign of flu adults take 2 teaspoons every 2 hours, and 2 teaspoons 3-4 times per day when symptoms lessen. As a preventive, the recommendation is a tablespoon every morning. Children love elderberry syrup; adjust the amount according to age. DO NOT GIVE products containing honey to infants under 1 year of age.

November Wren

Three thirty– afternoon

of dark and light November,

the voice of the wren

lifts me from my book

to turn and kneel

before the window’s shining altar.

In the pear tree, just outside,

a tiny messenger,

no bigger than a baby’s fist,

leaps like a beating heart,

her tail, a lever

of sweet uncounted notes,

her throat a channel

for the sound of liquid silver.

She dances to keep her place secure

wedged within the crotch

of the dark branch,

a tiny burst of  voice

who sings of interruption,

the piping hymn to the god

who arrives unbidden

in  smiling silence, spirit insistent,

a star’s spark in silver twilight.

Wren is the voice of initiation,

and where she leads

beyond the pear tree,

is land uncharted.

She is the last pear left

upon the winter tree,

where next May

a tower of white blossom

will celebrate  her visit

from the world of song.

Full Moon in Reed (Ngetal)

Winter approaches the Northern Hemisphere, and the Sun is low in the sky.  The Moon rises ever higher and seems so much brighter than she did in spring and early summer!   The full Moons of autumn light the sky even as the Sun withdraws to the South, leaving us with short days and long nights.

Last night, as the almost full Moon shed her enchanting blue light on all the world, I saw a deer dance across the road in front of my car. Her beauty and celebratory mood were a perfect representation of the Taurus Moon. On Sunday, November 17, 10:16 am the Moon will reach her perfect full pulse, but until then we will see her each night, beating her great sky drum,  already in Taurus, ready to celebrate the joys of the earth.  Taurus is under the rulership of Venus, and the Moon is ‘exalted  (fully expressive) in this sign.  Once a year the full Taurus Moon marks a time to celebrate our planet’s beauty and joy reflected in her sister the Moon’s bright light.

Moon is in ‘detriment,’ not comfortable, in the opposite sign, Scorpio, ruled by Mars. While Taurus celebrates all that is sensual and earthy, Scorpio teaches us to look behind, beneath and beyond the visible world into the realm of darkness and mystery.  This full Moon teaches us to dance between these opposing signs and impulses, to celebrate the beauty and generosity of the earth and the deeper mystery of what cannot be seen, felt, or touched.   Each full Moon we have the opportunity to bridge a polarity of signs and season, while appreciating each end of the opposition.

During the Ngetal Moon cycle, our lunar lady goes from detriment at the new Moon, when she is in Scorpio, to her sign of exaltation in Taurus when she is opposite the Sun.  Here’s a cosmic lesson for us all!

Since we are on the subject of rulership and oppositions, this TaurusMoon/Scorpio Sun  moment has a tight conjunction between Pluto (the co-ruler of Scorpio) and Venus the ruler of Taurus.  Together they are in the sign of Capricorn, the builder.  Is this a potent moment for understanding between widely diverse impulses and points of view?  Venus and Pluto would seem to have nothing in common.  Venus is about love, beauty, art, sensuality and relationship.  Pluto is the lord of death, the implacable truth teller of dark secrets bubbling to the surface.  Both guard their kingdoms jealously.  Yet they are cheek to cheek in the sky, even as the Taurus Moon reflects the Sun’s Scorpionic light.   Both are in a square (90 degree relationship  to revolutionary Uranus and sextile (60 degrees)  to the healer Chiron.   This may be the moment to understand your enemy’s point of view, to create unification between polar opposites.  If we turn to Chiron’s healing arts as we listen to each other, we can create a world more humane for everyone.

Mercury is in this mix with Pluto, Venus, Uranus and Chiron.  He is the messenger from the Scorpionic kingdom, ruled by Mars and Pluto.  Mercury can be the neutral force in many oppositions.    He is the messenger, and not the message.  He’s the voice that neither side of an argument wants to hear.

full moon of Ngetal 2013

Now look at this further message about polar opposites: the Sun’s magnetic field is about to flip!  ‘This reversal happens every 11 years and is tied to the sun’s cycle of activity, now near its peak. The effects of the reversal will ripple throughout the solar system.’ http://earthsky.org/space/suns-magnetic-field-poised-to-reverse-polarity-scientists-say

A youtube video explains this phenomenon in greater depth. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=34gNgaME86Y.   This is expected to happen in the next few days. What was happening in your life 11 years ago, when the last solar flip occured?   The 911 attacks took place at the beginning of this cycle, we began a series of wars in the Middle East,  the omnipresence of the internet was about to change every moment of our lives.  As we bring these cosmic events into our consciousness, we can find balance in a period of readjustment, fueled by powerful forces of polarity.                         Happy Full Moon and Sun Flip!

Solar Eclipse/ New Moon of Ngetal, November 3, 2013.

Read Full Post »

On October 18 the end of the Lunar Eclipse will be visible here in eastern North America as the Moon rises at 7:45 pm.  The moment of fullness is at 9:38 pm EDT.  Of course we need clear skies to see this special event, but all those who are attuned to cosmic energies will feel the full Moon and lunar eclipse consciously, and can meet the powerful forces at work with an open embrace.

Moon and forest http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2064/2691204264_1c23169a6a.jpg

            As always at the full Moon we have the opportunity to integrate the opposing energies of the Sun and Moon.  The Libra-Aries polarity is always at work on a moment-by-moment basis in our lives.  We have move back and forth between a relationship to ourselves and our relationship to other people.   The Sun in Libra is focused outward towards friends and partners, while the Moon in Aries yearns to feel safe and solid inwardly.   A friend recently spoke to me about the use of Perseus and the slaying of Medusa as a tool we have to observe and change what is fixed and habitual in our response to the world.   Someone steps on our ego, and we respond in a way, which has become a pattern, either to withdraw or lash out in anger.  But then the Gorgon, Medusa turns us to stone, because we cannot transform our reaction, nor can we see our own monster within.  If we turn our ‘shield’ into a mirror to look into ourselves, like Perseus, we can slay the Gorgon who would paralyze us, and we become free.

Medusa by Caravaggio

            Mars and Venus are rulers of the Moon and Sun this full Moon, and represent opposite forms and use of energy.  Mars pushes outward, Venus draws inward.  The universe does not exist with only one of these polarities.  The in breath and the out breath are equally necessary to life; the journey outward becomes the return home.   The period of the two equinoxes, followed by their full Moon, in spring and fall, give us the opportunity to feel, in equal measure Mars and Venus at work in our lives.  While looking for images of Venus and Mars, I discovered that they are always shown in the arena of Venus, a love scene, rather than a scene of war.  The two are always lovers, but never husband and wife, each must retain their individual power.

Venus-And-Mars-C.1790

            This full Moon/ Penumbral lunar eclipse will fall at 25° Libra and Aries.  The Sun’s position is within minutes of the brilliant fixed star, Arcturus, sometimes called a doorway to other dimensions. With Arcturus aligned to an eclipse, we have the potential to experience new insights, but they may not always feel welcome.  Like the earthquakes which have shaken the Philllipines and New Guinea over the last few days, new consciousness, can be devastating.

Full Moon of Gort 2013

   The Sabian Symbol for the degree of the Sun is ‘An eagle and a large white dove change into each other.  The interaction of the spiritual Will and of the Love principle when critical needs arise.’    And for the Moon: ‘A man possessed of more gifts than he can hold.  Obsession by potentiality.’   From An Astrological Mandala by Dane Rudhyar.

This chart also contains the Uranus Pluto square which will, once again, become exact on November 1st.   The continued tightening of these two planets revive the issues which surfaced at their conjunction in the 1960’s.   Their riveting demand for change, and then the repression of change, colors everything around us.  Speaking of squares you might want to follow this thread which has a creative exercise for searching out our own ‘squared’ issues in depth.  It’s not from an astrological perspective, but the principle of how a square works in astrology is explored in depth here: http://www.corelight.org/resources/marriage-of-spirit/chapters/chapter-eleven/.

It is the lesson we learn from Gort, from Ivy, which will take us to the next stage of the Moon’s journey.   She is halfway, only halfway through her Gort cycle.  After the full Moon she will release all that she has gathered during the last few weeks.   The Sun will enter Scorpio and the fire festival of Samhain (Hallowe’en) will take place.  On November 3, still within the season of Samhain, the Moon will return to new again and we will have a total eclipse of the Sun.  Until then, enjoy the beauties and mysteries of this harvest Moon as she fills and then empties and While looking up on these beautiful fall evenings say ‘hello’ to Venus who is decorating the Western sky.  Here she is decorated in Ivy.
