Estrology November 2014

Estrology, November 2014
 

This month’s theme is transformation.  Halloween, one of Nature’s eight turning points, is the midpoint between the Fall Equinox and Winter Solstice. It indicates it is time to shift the emphasis from the outer light to the inner light, as symbolized by the lit candle inside of the pumpkin.  

What is it that I can let go of, release or eliminate, so that I can be open, receptive, and available to rebirth and regeneration? How can I live my life as the passionate, compassionate one that I AM, in and as, my ESSENCE?

ARIES: Letting go is an act of courage. We can change our experience of the past by creating a new interpretation, orientation or attitude toward what has already happened.  The Aries challenge is to step into the freedom of knowing: “Now is the time, and the only time, where you have the capacity to awaken new possible futures by releasing the scripts --- that you have rehearsed, over and over ---  that no longer serve.” (Uranus in Aries conjunct South Node)

TAURUS: “We are in miracle bodies, and we need to do something responsible to live up to that,” Jim Channon. Jim is the creator of the New Earth Army, a possibility where the military armies of the world cease to fight each other and instead work to restore and maintain a healthy planet.
What if we were to shift from comparing our bodies, all the media mania about what we shoulda, coulda, woulda, look like if we_______. Instead let’s really appreciate this miraculous Earthspacesuit we’re inhabiting. As the opening line of my song Spaceship Earth says, “Please see the miracle that you are; Let your love shine like a star; Let your self be free to be; Celebrate the miracle of you and me.*”  Are you willing to try it for a month?  Warning, you may never return to bashing or disliking yourself or your body again! (Earth in Taurus)

GEMINI:  The Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. said: “Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter.” Is there anything in your life you are complacent about?  Any area where you are not speaking up because you afraid to?  What if your evolutionary cutting edge is to be a voice for equality, Mother Earth, the children, the arts, the forests, the_______? What is calling you to speak out? (Mercury conjunct North Node in Libra)

CANCER: “The Universe is a communion of subjects, not a collection of objects,” said the late Thomas Berry.  We live in a world that attempts to commodify and take the soul out of everything, even if that process is destroying what it seeks to put a price tag on.  What would happen if enough of us realize and were to see all of Life as an end in itself rather than as the means to some other end? What if we respected that everyOne has feelings?  (One Moon reflecting in countless reflections)

LEO: “Even after all this time, the Sun never says to the Earth, “You owe me.”   Look what happens with a love like that, it lights up the whole sky.” Hafiz  Oh that the “elite” were to wake to this love!  But we can’t wait for some other to get it, as though that will be the vehicle to heal our Earthly plight.  Each one of us has within us a heart that can open to the infinite and see that infinite in the finite.  As each of us is willing to do this...to open to the Divine Love already inside of us....we liberate ourselves and make it easier for everyone else to open as well. (Jupiter and Juno in Leo)

VIRGO: “In this moment, not tomorrow, when you have it--- but in this moment--- to take one moment, whatever it is you want, however profound or mundane, and just stop looking for it, and you will find more than you can ever want, because what can be wanted is already who you are.  Too simple to be grasped but absolutely, completely, realizable if---and it is a huge if of course---you are willing to give up your hope that what you want will be found in the next thought or the next activity, or in the next day, or the next man or the next woman, or the next experience or the next teaching.” Gangaji   (Chiron in Pisces)

LIBRA: The lack of justice, balance and devastation of natural beauty are blights in the human experience. Consider these words in The Hope by Andrew Harvey:
“The Sacred Activist who fuses profound mystical knowledge, stamina, peace, and passion with wise, focused action in the world is the most dangerous of all beings to those destructive forces that long to undo the human experiment.” (North Node / Mercury in Libra)

SCORPIO: The key to Scorpio and it’s companion planet Pluto is the willingness to let go: not only to forgive others but to forgive yourself. Equally important is the ability to stop thinking that you are powerless.  Those in power prey on the rest of us largely because we have forgotten who and what we are and have fallen under the delusion that we are powerless.  As David Ickes says so succinctly,“You are infinite awareness whose been manipulated to believe you are a little me.” (Sun and Venus conjunct in Scorpio; Saturn in Scorpio; Pluto in Capricorn)

SAGITTARIUS: Philosophy translates as “the love of wisdom.” “Give up hope and give up hopelessness; give up any mask and give up no mask.” Gangaji
How succinct and appropriate a challenge for this time of costumery we call Halloween. What if you were to see the world as a stage, and recognize that the personality you think you are isn’t the real you?  What if you are just willing to be----nothing to prove, no fixed ideas about what shouda, coulda, woulda, mighta, is righta?  (This is not to suggest action or non-action.  This is an opportunity to let the hamster wheel rest.)  (Jupiter in Leo; Juno in Leo)

CAPRICORN: “We are in miracle bodies, and we need to do something responsible to live up to that,” Jim Channon. Jim is the creator of the New Earth Army, a possibility where the military armies of the world cease to fight each other and instead work to restore and maintain a healthy planet. If the planetary Saturn/Capricorn correlate and archetype is the planetary “skeletal system,” we need to reassess our “Father Figures,” governmental structures, and corporate organizations and ask, “Who are you really serving?”  Who are “Darth Vadars” hidden heads that authorize policies that are detrimental to the people and the planet?  A healthy planetary skeletal system is responsible and in service to the well being of the whole community. There is respect for and awareness that the spine is made up of individual components, not an inflexible false oneness! (Pluto in Capricorn)

 AQUARIUS: Your continued calling is to stop doing things in the same way and expecting them to come out differently! Take a look at what fears may be barking at you when you know it is time to stop repeating the same patterns, thoughts, and stories.  Who are you without all these old props and propositions? (Uranus, the planet affiliated with Aquarius, in Aries)

PISCES: As Rev. Deborah Johnson says, “We run into what we are running from.”   Have you ever seen escapism free anyone?  Be it a drug, alcohol, Facebook, TV, films, apps for virtual reality, word games, or eating in excess, it never, ever works, and most frequently we return feeling more discomfort than before we started.  What if we were just to meet that which we run from---allow the fear, anger, hopelessness, despair,--- to be experienced? Those that have report that there is freedom and relief in “them, there, metaphorical hills!”
