You Didn’t Miss the Boat

First, a little preface: hello, everyone and how was your eclipse season experience? Mine was quite a doozy in mostly positive ways and it means that I am struggling to get into this space when I’d like to. For instance, this posting has been simmering since the 6th of the month and now I have a lot I want to say about Mars’ movement into Capricorn. I will just have to keep in mind that we are never really ‘late’. Do stay in touch! 

Several people have told me that they are worried they missed the ‘real point’ meant for them concerning the three squarings of Neptune by Saturn. I am thinking perhaps there are others who feel this way and I want to say this: you didn’t. I will even take this a step further and say: you couldn’t.

Foundationally speaking, lets keep a few things in mind. Neptune is an outer planet signifying generational effects. This means that, for the individual, the concept of All-oneness is a gently seeping while-you-aren’t-looking kind of phenomenon. Unlike Saturn, teaching lessons through ALL the aspects of survival every 28 years, Neptune takes a substantial lifetime’s worth of Time.

For this reason, we say that it is Saturn that moves in and out of challenge points with Neptune. Neptune simply is. It is what exists outside of Time, beyond the veil, in the prickling of the hairs on our skin in certain moments. In contrast, Saturn dictates that there are seasons, times for beginnings and endings, times for fact-checking the practicalities of making our dreams a reality – or we would be wasting our precious and finite incarnation.

At those times when gravity-dense Saturn comes into aspect with Neptune, your reality picture can get soggy around the edges of the areas of life where Saturn is transiting. This cannot help but also reveal/inform your natural style of building a life. Should you have natal planets in this range of degrees (in your Sag house) or in frictional aspect to this range of degrees, you are going to experience more than soggy…you might even experience a tsunami of sorts.

So…if all you felt was a bit of uncomfy dampness which you took care of…well then, you will have simply but clearly been given what you needed: an upgraded download of wisdom about (1) what it means to balance what inspires you to build and what you can reasonably build, and (2) insights into human nature in these Times and over generations of past and potential future.

It is good to remember that astrology is a highly individualistic science-art capable of relaying a unique message to the one and only you and simultaneously to All of Us. Some messages are whopping headliners and some are at the bottom of page 4. This squaring transit that astrologers spoke of concerns All of Us: this generation’s migration wave experience is the most easily noted. But also, Saturn will aspect your unique Neptune placement at regular intervals and many of the lessons that you read about and/or personally grasped during this time – from Autumn 2015 and into ‘the fallout’ months to come – are going to be helpful.

No way did you miss anything! You are exactly where you are. 🙂

Go, Mars in Capricorn! (which means ‘go after coming up with a solid plan’, btw)   And happy new moon in Libra, boot camp graduates!

Allegory of the Freedom of Trade, Gérard de Lairesse

Remember Aaron Swartz? There’s a bio out about him now (as reported by Tom Chatfield in Intelligent Life) and I thought this news synched nicely with Guy Rouleau’s pledge that  ‘all results and data will be made freely available at the time of publication, for example, and the [MNI] will not pursue patents on any of its discoveries.’ I think Aaron would be pleased.

 

A Tribute to a unique thinker: Marvin Minsky. Quite profound, that 2nd law…

Minsky’s First Law
Words should be your servants, not your masters.
Minsky’s Second Law
Don’t just do something. Stand there.

 

‘The quality of time in the Chinese calendar is described by two primary components- a ring of 12 animals and a cycle of 5 phases of energy.’

Check out Austin Coppick’s Monkey Time. [I’m a rare Fire Horse. I know, you probably guessed that  😉 ]

 

I mentioned back in July that I expected to see feminine/anima energies to be on the rise in our collective consciousness. Thus, I was chuffed and so grateful to see just last week that Kimberly Maxwell has taken the time to gather so many examples of this phenomenon in one place. And the trend goes on.

 

‘The farther apart the keys are on a piano keyboard, the farther apart they are within this imaginary dimension; a given distance along the keyboard translates into a given distance within the dimension. You don’t see this dimension as such; to you, it’s an abstraction that captures the acoustical independence of sound waves. But it’s a remarkably fitting abstraction. Musicians call the difference between pitches a musical “interval,” which has connotations of distance, as if our brains really do think of the differences between pitches as spatial separation. AdS/CFT duality takes this abstraction literally and suggests that one of the dimensions of the space we occupy represents the energy or, equivalently, the size of waves within the underlying system.’

Yep, that’s another blurb from the previously shared Space piece. Its ok, take your time… 🙂
