Start by Breathing. But nothing in the heap needs that human at the top. Ye humans are the most expendable of all — yet ye all think yer indispensable! Although uncommon in the Patriarchal Age, this sort of consciousness is sometimes experiened in mystical states or with the aid of psychedelic drugs. Within the gestative system [Matriarchy], movement was contained and cyclic. The metaphor for progress was natural, vegetative proliferation and succession of seasons.
Phases succeeded one another in a repeating pattern, like a circle, or like the snake biting its tail.
Progress is pictured as ascent achieved through competition and mastery. It is beyond my capacity to picture concretely such a world based on exertive-world principles of egalitarian networks, contextual transformation, and holistic transcendence.
It lasts for about a day and involves 7 planets. In most cases we can have enhancements dominating the pattern, but when Saturn, Sedna or Juno is involved then we cannot count on things being positive when one of those planets is in a turbulent aspect. If the Moon moves into the 6th point, then a grand sextile pattern is formed. Hello and Thank you for posting some of my material and your beautiful attention to linking back to my site and etc. Amor — 1 Aries — We look to an ideal-type quality of Love, which goes beyond ego-based, body-based, mind-based or even heart-based ideas of connection. Points are useful when several astrological variables are included in an analysis but in this study only one astrological variable, the 5-planets in a grand sextile configuration, is analyzed.
In general, Angles between planets that are less than three Degrees apart can be considered to have a strong impact on the Present Moment. Angles between planets that are less than eight Degrees apart will have less effect on the Present Moment, but will have profound impact on any project or Entity or Identity that is born at the time. The average Muggle might be hard-pressed to detect one Degree of Orb, while a Sensitive person could feel the impact of eight or ten Degrees even in the Present Moment.
Because we use many more planets, asteroids, dwarfs, and Centaurs than traditional astrology, for birth charts we try to keep our Attention directed toward Angles that are less than five Degrees apart. Because we expect most of our readers to be Sensitive to Energy, we often use five degrees for Present-Moment charts as well. Exceptions arise when Angles adjoin one another. But Ceres sits at 16 Degrees, three Degrees on the other side of the Eclipse. To be thorough, we should do both, that is, read all three. Haumea is very Conjunct Lilith, but at 24 Degrees. Duality does happen to be a signal property of the Observing Human mind, however, so we interpret Fate as a philosophical issue, not an Existential issue.
The combination means that…. And while New Moons are generally considered to impact the following two to four weeks, Eclipses are usually given a longer span of influence, often nine months. Her reading for this Eclipse mirrors ours, but of course as always adding much of note….
The nature of a Sextile is Grace, as long as we provide the initial impetus to kickstart the process. We may even be able to kickstart one of the Sextiles and watch it activate the other five!
Pluto represents that which Cannot Be Ignored. We need to ride this River downstream.
Ask your doctor if Climate Change Denial is good for you, it should say. Ask your doctor if Globalization is good for you. Ask your doctor if Glyphosate-saturated, mineral-deficient food-like substances are good for you. If Death occurs, tell your doctor immediately and discontinue use. We still have quite a bit of material left in this Eclipse chart that keeps on Giving — to be continued! So the Grand Cross is the ultimate in perpetual Motivation.
Most Grand Cross people are Superachievers. You may have had to work your butt off at it, but to them it was as natural as Breathing. They say he knows as much about rocket science as the experienced engineers he hires. The represent prenatal Alignments in your Psyche that makes Life easier. Not Work, but Love. Like the Grand Trine, it symbolizes Grace, but not dumb-luck Grace. A Grand Sextile has two Grand Trines embedded in it.
Hopi completes the Grand Sextile. Oh, and did we mention that the asteroid Pandora is there with Hopi too?
Along with the asteroids Sappho and Arachne. Arachne is particularly appropriate, since in the Hopi Mythology it was Spider Grandmother who wove the Universe. What all this means, is that any projects we started this week, or start Thursday or Friday or this weekend, will fly like a rocket! Left-justified bold italic type is meant to communicate with anyone. We use the Fuchsia type for emphasis.
In rocket science, the Sky is not the Limit! The result of our new Adventures will be greater Attention to our Missions. We may want to have a Manganotantalite Crystal handy, or at least a picture of one we can Channel Energy from, as Manganotantalite — Manganese Tantalum Oxide — is very good at gilding our tongue. And a couple of other things have popped up.
First, Vesta is Conjunct the Centaur Nessus! Well, this puts Nessus at the focus of our Flying Squirrel. Nessus is about Privilege and the calling out of Privilege, particularly Unconscious male Privilege.
So this week is a big week for a shift in Gender Balance, so Reanimation of the Earth is really right in line. Which is actually an excellent practice for this week…. For instance, I was grumbling to myself this afternoon about this very thing. It was trespass that irritated me, but when I ask myself how I trespass the direct Mirror , nothing pops up. In the Funhouse Mirror, though, what shows up is Deservingness. Am I willing to stand up and unequivocally Claim my Space? When I contemplate that, I find only visions of escalating violence rather than any sense of Peace and Safety.
So I get to look beneath that Mirror for the little man behind the curtain. The Centaur Asbolus. So our Grand Sextile endures for a solid week. Ceres has been Out of Bounds since Christmas. So Asbolus Clairvoyance supports Juno Consciousness which supports Makemake Manifestation which supports Saturn Focus which supports Ceres Sustainability which supports Mercury Alertness which supports Asbolus, etc, in a rising crescendo. Not only that, but we can take these in any order we want — so So Sustainability supports Consciousness which supports Focus , just to suggest one possible partial combination.
In other words, this week Intuition and Analysis and Growth and Attention and Permanence and Creativity are all mutually supportive. The Centaur Hylonome. When our Beliefs or Dogmas or Archetypes change, our Boundaries change with them. Which brings us to the Stellium, a significant Configuration in its own right, for several reasons. When a planet is either Stationary or Out of Bounds, its influence is Stronger than usual.
In general, when a planet is Approaching a major event, such as a Station or an important Angle, the influence is Strong, and grows Stronger until the event is Exact. After that, the influence fades fairly quickly if one is Conscious about the event, more slowly if one is not Conscious around it, and not at all if one is Defended against it. The Mythical Centaur Hylonome committed Suicide with the spear that killed her Lover, rather than live without him.
So we interpret the Cosmic Centaur Hylonome to symbolize Grief over major Changes in our Life, such as detachment from an Archetype, or from any other Energy with which we had been Merged. The Loss of an Archetype is indeed an Ego Death. With Pallas Conjunct, Boundaries are obviously involved, and there is a strong implication that we will be strengthening a Boundary against an Archetypal Trance, or loosening a Boundary that overprotected us. Or it may be us with the gilded tongue, talking our way out of long-standing entanglements that no longer serve us.
Eclipses reveal to us Energies which were previously merged with the background but which are now made obvious by their absence. The more we Embrace our Grief, the less painful it is. The Centaur Chariklo.
Almost forgot that Chariklo, part of the Stellium, is Stationary on April 7! The photo is by Waldemar Skorupa. The Portal The Harmonic Concordance Grand Sextile was discovered astrologically and publicized, at great personal expense, by Johnny Mirihiel…. The Vacancies article gives us some benchmarks to compare to our own subsequent Lives.
For instance, I have natal planets in three of the four Muse Vacancies. These disruptive changes mark the beginning of a new era that we have entered as a global community, an era of increasing disruption. Sometimes such movements will give rise to movements that bring about profound change, and sometimes they will falter and fail. In many cases these disruptions are already on their way. It is too late to prevent all of them.
