New Moon Solar Eclipse: 27 Aquarius 7

cypNMSE15feb18

There is a buzzy undercurrent to this new moon solar eclipse for just about any life zone it seeds in the natal wheel. In the days leading up to the conjunction, you may have been feeling something akin to a vacuum, a depression or even the eeriness of the calm before a storm. Some have felt a hint of euphoria, a tingling vibration through the mind and body…Yesterday, I heard someone say, ‘Perhaps I won’t give up just yet…?’

You’re not losing your marbles, just having your hinges rattled. Your emotional center is picking up the kind of static that comes when the Collective Zeitgeist is shifting from one frequency to another. For those with natal points in play, there’s a mega data stream en route – a hand on the radio dial turns and suddenly the speakers are BLARING. Is it a song, a proclamation, a public service announcement or a fixating whisper that feels like it could well deafen your inner child’s ears?

I can’t help but think of Elon Musk’s spectacular Falcon Heavy accomplishment as symbolic of what one might do with this ecliptic energy. In each unique life story touched by this phenomenon, the seed planted in this moment has the potential to make the tough – the impossible – look like a majestic walk in the park. On that note, let’s include the agenda of Saturn in Capricorn, too. There were countless sleepless days and nights of raw intellectual and physical toil with subsequent tearful release, an incessant dream-drive that many found baffling and a waste of time, frightening costs of cash and spirit spent behind the scenes for years that Elon and the many teams aligned under the SpaceX vision endured.

And they would do it all again, without hesitation.

The toothpaste doesn’t go back into the tube once you’ve glimpsed with Sky Sight. Time is not the enemy. Time morphs into your accomplice. Time lets you know how much space you have for each incremental step/phase/budget line item/trial run. Time grants you the authority to know when you’re ready for launch, ready to upcycle, ready to pro-actively manipulate the materials of your passion work.

Since the new moon in Capricorn, I’ve listened to many people say, ‘I am going to DO (this), BE (this), HAVE (this) NOW. And that is easy to understand in these times of instant gratification. But this mentality is self-sabotage. Nothing enduring happens in an instant – not even the comprehensive grasping of (this) in your mind’s eye.

For those who have faithfully continued showing up to The Grindstone, know that you have truly earned at least a mini-break…don’t dismiss the invitation and here’s why: this new moon moment signals the imminent arrival and docking of Spaceship Genius for those intentionally aligning their heart and mind. It signals the pro-active upcycling of the minds and materials that constitute your reality . The crew – metaphoric and of flesh and blood – brings rich supplies for the months and years to come. On behalf of those I know who are putting in the effort, I am positively giddy with expectation. Hold on tight!

‘I think If you’re going  to choose a place to die, then Mars is probably, you know,  not a bad choice.’  – Elon Musk at the Code Conference.

 

Building Rapport

This is the article that sparked my last post as it inspired hope for an evolved Martian response in the individual as we all redress unfinished business in our Scorpio-house matters. Perhaps our methods earlier this year could be called, ‘How Not to Interrogate Suspects’.  Read it from an applied personal perspective (loosely speaking, of course!) and see what you come up with…

Reporter and author, Robert Kolker, in the magazine section of wired.com:

Police veterans aren’t exactly eager to be told they’ve been doing their job wrong for 30 years. “I think we can overcome that pushback by focusing on the younger guys in our division,” [Tim] Marcia [LAPD] says. There’s an entrenched culture behind that blue wall—and a new, labor-intensive technique based on “rapport-building” might not be the most likely thing to breach it. “Interrogation and interview is a very egocentric thing,” Stearns says. For some police departments, and for some interrogators, it may be a nonstarter to do anything other than treat a suspect with suspicion.

 

Sensory Experience

Lotje’s story was a timely find because one of my clients experienced a stroke this past April at the age of forty-four. While his was far less debilitating, it helped us and enhanced our conversations. Life becomes more meaningful for everyone close to the person experiencing a transit as metamorphic as this.

I still can’t read for more than a few minutes at a time (these words are brought to you courtesy of Siri), but I see more of the world; a world that may not always have left-to-right linear patterns, but is intuited instead through subtle sensory experience. I see my stroke as a kind of rebirth; unexpected and painful, but also more vivid, filled with purpose, meaning and potential. – Lotje Sodderland

Lotje includes a fascinating sketch she made of one of her visions and I immediately thought of the phoenix in its newly hatched and uncomely state…

 

Aligning Mental Models

Edge.org featured educator Howard Gardner says, ‘When I was working on The App Generation with Katie Davis, we realized that most kids nowadays growing up in the developed society have never gotten lost. If they don’t have some kind of a device, their parents do, and they can find them. Getting lost for all of human history was part of life. Nobody ever got lost permanently; you got found or, more probably, you found yourself. That simple thing is very profound…                .’

‘What questions am I asking?  Here’s one: Are the pre-conceptions I have about education at all being borne out by what we find out from the people on these campuses? I’m asking what are their mental models. How do the students think about higher education? How do their parents think, etc.? Another bit of social science terminology: we are interested in alignment and misalignment.

When everybody says the same thing, it’s not very interesting to us. But if all the heads of schools talk about the importance of training good citizens, while parents and students never mention that, that’s a misalignment. If parents talk a lot about getting jobs but faculty say, “It’s not our business to get people jobs”—that’s a misalignment.’

 

One for the Knuckle Draggers

This one just has baffled and frustrated and excited me all at the same time. This sounds so…I want to say precious… I want to know more but I also realize that what we will be able to confirm will barely scratch the surface.

Ed Yong reports in The Atlantic about a meeting place in a cave, 336 meters inside the earth, last used ‘176,500 years ago, give or take a few millennia’. Wow!

‘The discovery suggested that Neanderthals were more sophisticated than anyone had given them credit for. They wielded fire, ventured deep underground, and shaped the subterranean rock into complex constructions. Perhaps they even carried out rituals; after all, there was no evidence that anyone actually lived in the cave, so what else were the rings and mounds for?’  This is one unfolding story to keep track of.

 

Your Choice: Seeing Oppositions as Rooted in One and the Same

Spiritual realization does not consist in escaping the world but in seeing it as it is.

Of the metaphysical transparency of phenomena we can say this: Every phenomenon has a metaphysical root whose universal form is reflected in the phenomenon itself, so that the outward form is only an image or reflection of the inward meaning or essence. The manifest part of a tree, i.e. its trunk and branches, has the same form as the unmanifest part of the tree, its root. Thus, the soil, or that which separates earth from heaven, is really the plane of reflection through which the unmanifest essence projects itself into the manifest form. This portrays the universal architectonic of Reality which regenerates itself, much like a fractal, beginning from the Godhead and repeating itself all the way up to the most mundane aspect of any phenomenon. This universal form, i.e. the polarity of principle and projection, is the origin of all dualities: Essence and form, mind and matter, subject and object, ego and world, lord and the servant, heaven and the earth, creator and creature, up and down, north and south, wave and particle, the I and the other, happiness and misery, profit and loss, friend and enemy, union and separation, good and evil, with and without, inward and outward, light and darkness, life and death, mortality and immortality, here and there, now and then, right and left, me and you, etc. Now you get to make only two moves, either toward your root and principle, i.e. your first cause, or away from it, to become whole or remain a hole. To perceive in all these pairs the presence of one and the same principle, one and the same meaning; this is the metaphysical transparency of phenomena, that is, to see the painter in the painting.

Last but certainly not least, I am wishing you a notable Gemini New Moon!
