Update: What just happened?!

Long-time readers here will appreciate seeing this update from a guest on Neptune and the Oak back in June 2014. So very happy for you, Veronica!

The Sacred Architecture of Here and Now

It’s been four years since I began this journey through the blog-o-sphere and about three since I’ve contributed anything to this space. I stopped posting in 2014 because I realized that my ego had grown too attached to the 365-Day Creativity Challenge I committed to. The challenge was a wonderful learning experience and since then I’ve grown so much as a writer, design professional, and person. Now, for some reason, it feels right to come back.

The year is ending with a bang:

  • One month ago I moved to Costa Rica.
  • Five days after moving to Costa Rica I met an integral designer on a bus who needed an architect for a climate park project with the University of Peace and in less than a week I had the job I was born for.
  • Saturn moved into Capricorn a week ago, initiating me into my first Saturn return.
  • Last Friday…

New Moon: 26 Sagittarius 31

NMcyp18nov17

Bounce
This new moon in Sagittarius contains a concentrated mix of beginnings and endings. Imagine there’s a big holiday party going on. Everyone is in good spirits…just a little muted…you see, there is one particular elder guest that everyone must find and pay their respects to, before wandering off to mingle and dance. Knowing he is present takes the collective mood down a notch or two but only an ignoramus would miss the chance to have their moment with him.
We’ve been here collectively before but in a different space-time. The atmosphere reminds me of some of the latest theories on the origins of our universe. No big bang. Just (another?) bounce. After maximum expansion, a kind of limit is reached; a traffic jam of waves begets some strange maths and the next iteration of Verse bounces forth with very low entropy. Our party is happening as a seismic crescendo ripples through – and here we are – on the verge of next generation Being and Building to be experienced across our cosmos. Shall we dance?

Just curious: does it change how you feel about the storyline if we come from a bouncing cycle rather than a big bang one-off origin?

Back on point, it does mean we are in for quite a shift in 2018. Some tea cups will rattle in their saucers. Strong, cool-headed agendas will harden into Form. Manifestations will come in slowed, deliberate motion.
In other words, your new moon wish will optimally contain panoramic vision, cup-half-full perspective and the work ethic of a hungry intern. A bounce infers a lightness of Being even as gravity rules the speed of movement through space. That’s a word-image to keep handy.

Aspects to Sun-Moon

Concepts that factor in timing – for your personal pace and your processing system – will be paramount. Key will be accepting What Is at each unfolding step along the way. There is less sensitivity to particulars and more support for ideals at the moment; as we find our legs again, particulars will inevitably loom larger on the landscape. Your evolving value system – part of a class of upcoming graduates – will come in handy.

Those with goals that are exclusive rather than inclusive (in contextual design) can find genuine – and possibly uncomfortable – insights into the roots of motivation. Does this seed-wish come from a pay-back mindset? Or perhaps: are the foundational interests that have brought me to this idea still authentic?

We are in the midst of a ten-day concentrated course for the next phase of our titanic turning. What conclusions can be drawn after a sobering two year slog through The Wild Side? Here we are on day 8, a fiery circuit beckoning and a river flowing beneath. The river will flow for you no matter what you do but channeling pro-creative fire as you reflect, take notes and settle your accounts in these new moon days is up to you. Now you know it is there. (For more on gaining access, read this.) For those with placements around 25’ of Leo: magician, know thyself! Plumb the depths of self-sourced power – just don’t get too reckless or your bounce might land like a lead balloon.

Aspects to  Moon Ruler, Jupiter
Your blessings-and-evolution potential is directly related to your level of acceptance of Now as best as can be discerned. What can you be grateful for after the experiences of the last 2 years? How much have you seen and heard that you couldn’t have imagined and in what ways have these experiences re-shaped your mind/body/spirit? What Truths have come to serve you well?

We are all bound by our universal needs. We are all bound by our fixed position on this solely inhabitable planet. This is the stuff of nightmares and fearless evangelism. Preppers, fill your tanks from the radiant Water pipe (and mark the spot on your map). It’s the one you can see with your inner eye and should be coming into view very soon.

From time to time, expect this Water to morph into fresh-sight medicine for your own good. Imbibe, wince, repeat until wincing is no longer reflexive. Note that not everyone is as careful about their Water supply. Take responsibility for any that you accept from others. This beguiling trine will be imbedded in the development and practice of workable philosophies as we approach the 2020s.

I’m sending wishes that this warming new moon vibe fills our sails for a strategic post-party landing. These days, DO take some time to revel in whatever lifts you up! That’s my plan. 🙂

Full Moon: 11 Gemini 40

The Twins Within
The atmosphere this full moon time will affect individuals along two fuzzy frequencies. Were you born in the morning or the evening? Do you have more earth or water in your personality? I ask because factors like these will determine how you feel and experience this super moon.

The ruler of the moon is Mercury, in stilled mode to retrograde on the stressed degree of 29 Sagittarius – and caught fast in Saturn’s gravitational chains: not so good for earth signatures. But here, in Sag, it can also take a lot to get a body down. Venus, too, is in the house, magnetizing the pleasures of the season’s festivities.

For all of us, the Lights and the Sea God form an exact t-square in the heavens that will dump the energies converging into Virgo, the sector of practical service and mind/body/spirit health. Its a bit of a funny mix…we want to mix and mingle and take a break from the mundane but do we have the means and stamina to cover all the bases? We might stare at our to-do lists and then find our mind has wandered into a reverie of movie clips and voice overs that tug powerfully on our heart strings. Those who feel compelled to serve may end up feeling fretful on the inside, lethargic on the outside and delighted with any social interruption. Those that have more fire and water elements in their nature will mostly likely be at the holiday parties, feeling that this hard patch will also pass. It’s not effortless, mind you; they are willing themselves to flow.

This full moon in Gemini indicates that you can decide to enjoy yourself even if the wolves are howling along your proverbial ridge line. We’re breathing in a strange and surreal atmosphere but looking around, our immediate world is still about the same. Mundane issues may be sputtering but we’re on the case. We can acknowledge that we are mortal – and that twin feature is universal. Downtime is essential to mind/body/spirit health and good decision making. My advice: give a nod to the boundaries and then try to play a little within whatever playground you’ve got. Flow, fellow heroes, flow.
