Notes from the Compost Pile

So, how are we doing, folks? Is it full steam ahead or fits and starts? Is there graceful easing or groping in the fog? Of key importance, no matter which, is a bizarre question for you from way out in left field: where’s the sea-level line and where does the ground begin to rise? Riddle me this! 

There’s so much antifragility packed into this new moon in Virgo. The ruler is in attendance, if somewhat bedazzled, and the conjunction forms a sextile to Jupiter in Scorpio and a trine to Pluto rx in Capricorn. With some closer – yes, closer yet –  examination of the less attractive underpinnings-and-persons of our world stage, we can progress in our removal of more – yes, even more – rif-raf and debris on the scene. We can edit the stage in pursuit of best practice in everyday affairs. We can simultaneously optimize that which passes critique to keep. Upcycle the compost. 

In a general offering like this, I would advise looking to the realm of Taurus in your wheel. Note the themes and life sphere that this house occupies for you for ways in which to dig in/begin assessment with your new moon intention. (Subscribers are welcome to complimentary inquiry.)

But there’s some ointment on the fly. Whether that’s medicinal or a ‘bogger’ in my estimation will require personalized study of your unique Here and Now

The Great Waters (in all its potential forms) insist upon merging with this Virgo consolidation of our yin and yang. For some of us, taking some time apart from busy-ness will be crucial to our perceptions and sufficient for gaining traction. For others of us, the need to flexi-serve until mentally or physically exhausted over this span of days may be the way we will paradoxically attain the higher ground. These are examples on a spectrum we can liken to our sacred point on My Way merging with Our Way. All points along the Way are valid, serve a purpose and are meant to be fluid for best mind-body-spirit health. For this reason, All of Us would be wise to consider appraising those matters which we’ve labeled ‘static’, ‘off limits’, and even ‘Keep Out!’.

My new moon wish for you is symbiotic flow. 🙂

Neptune (the All-One) and A More Holistic and Profound Understanding

Narrative and story are tools of interpretation. They do not and cannot represent absolute truth. Within the evolving person’s life a narrative can change many times. Alternately one might apply a multitude of narratives to a single issue so that in effect one can see themselves simultaneously through many prisms and thus have a more holistic and profound understanding of their experience…

Narratives carry what might be called energetic information…Ultimately when one frees themselves from attachment to any particular narrative, then narratives cease to have energetic impact and clarity comes.  – excerpts from the numinous frontier by Monica Cassani

New Moon Solar Eclipse: 20′ Cancer

pluto_secrets revealed NASA july2014

Integral Yin Rising
At this Cancer new moon, the sun (yang, animus) is partially eclipsed by the moon (yin, anima), marking the first instalment of auspicious happenings and events across our Systems/Lineage lines and directly impacting the value We assign to them. Over the next year and a half, our inner security sensors and drives have access to an upgraded fuel blend. Core cultural shifts are afoot and premeditated measures are advised: this could get messy but the innate potential is too overwhelming for us to ignore.
And that’s indicated by an exact opposition to Pluto (element: Fixed Water), a striking feature of this new moon solar eclipse. Generally speaking, Pluto is the generational composter, however this is up close and personal for those with degree markers in range.

The script calls for  themes that speak of slow and steady, concentrated yet natural-feeling courses of action. Perhaps a story begins with the main character being anesthetized and a precise surgical incision is made…or episode 1, scene 1 involves an incident or confrontation occurring that emphatically puts the protagonist on notice – but is there any impact if pride/hubris and/or victim mentality still distort their vision?
Robin Adams points out that, ‘’The culmination occurs on 10-January-2020 with the Lunar Eclipse @ 20 Cancer…Myths and Legends are dying. Breathless in scope and vast in response – please remove subconscious shackles! Biology is connected to our perceptions, beliefs, and experiences.’’ As we step further into this Now, this space-time of destined development, how might you lay this tugging template across your own experiential map? How might some sectors of your life story, over the next year and a half, brim up, over and through in nutrient dense preparation for (insert heartfelt wish here)?

We’re all in this together. We have been practicing the wisdom of antifragility, the strength in flexibility and the courage that grows from embracing our best authentic Self. These are all parts of the equation that organically brings us within range of the Systems/Lineage axis. Let’s begin by feeling how power-full it is to confess ignorance where applicable and by promising to acknowledge fears as they arise when we explore hierarchies/pyramid schemes that extend above and below the vision field, in the spotlight and behind the scenes. I think that makes for a brilliant start.

New Moon: 24 Taurus 36

On the Exquisite Flavor of Water

A new moon can be a subtle event in a world full of electric light. Many people are truly unaware of the monthly alignment and that’s understandable. But not us…!

The descriptors for a new moon in Taurus cover materialism – the acquisition of which keeps us all head down at work  – and yet also the most primal five senses of sight, smell, touch, taste and sound. The preoccupations of the infant and toddler spin into the urges to keep up with our contemporaries. This is the zone of ‘Fixed’-‘Earth’ and is ruled by Venus, a magnetic yin archetype.

Our microcosm is fixed. Every day we pass through our abode, neighborhood, work space, etc and it cradles us, be that to the meager, middling or extravagant degree. It is what it is. We don’t spend energy dwelling upon it until something out of the ordinary occurs. But the annual new moon in Taurus offers a moment to pause and reflect on your material world requirements and how these factors set the daily activity regime for you and your intimate circle.

What would you alter in everyday life if you could and how would that affect your sense of sufficiency? Is there a path to compromise worth dedicating yourself to? Over the last decade, can you see evidence of how your income/expenditures have shifted? Many of us are grasping the difference between our wants and our needs.

What’s your favorite time of the day and why? Which of your senses are fulfilled during those moments? These days around the Taurean new moon, make peace with your space and possessions and the percentage of lack or wealth you designate to them. Consciously Revel in your sensory experiences in these days…

On the exquisite flavor of water, the feel of a hair brush, the hyper chattering of baby birds and the droning of bees. On the sights and sounds of your commute, the smells inside shops or the grocery store, the hum of motors keeping air, food and people in a controlled environment, the predictable cadence of tapped keys and one side of phone calls, the feel of your favorite chill-out seat.
Even better, revel in the company of (or in close proximity to) others: Venus is in Gemini. There’s a mini-break invitation here and for those who have been hard at work, She says, Rest while you can. Soon enough, the pace will quicken again.
