A Luminously Intelligent First Quarter Moon

moonHenry Seltzer – Saturday afternoon and evening’s First Quarter Moon comes along at an interesting time, just as we are absorbing the lessons for our lives stemming from the rather powerful first three months of the year. The activity of outer planets Uranus and Pluto in combination has been extreme, and has had the effect of raising our awareness for the issues that we must be getting on with, both individually and collectively, in this time of radical transformation. This month of April has been a thoughtful period of time, and next week, kicked off by the quarter Moon, continues this reflective trend. The logical attributes of conscious mental process are invoked, since Mercury is still near Mars in the sky and in close forming aspect to both Chiron and Pluto. Venus, ruler in this configuration of both the Sun and Mercury, remains inconjunct with Pluto while beginning to square Chiron as well. Saturn is also prominent now, aspected by the Sun and Moon, which can be seen as an indication of the seriousness of our current situation, and our commitment to embodying meaningful change.

Along with Chiron, powerful Pluto remains featured in these late spring skies, symbolizing the intensity of the mandate for change that has been so active over the beginning of the year and that in more muted form is yet still with us. The UranusPluto square, which recently completed its seventh of seven exact hits this decade, picks up again with renewed intensity next December, so that we have six months or so to consider what this most recent exact hit has brought to light for us — as we reflect on the deeper meaning of our lives. We might wonder where indeed we are heading in response to the transformational impulse that has been so resonantly stimulated over the past few years. Continue reading

A Numinously Neptunian New Moon

Henry Seltzer – The New Moon taking place on the late morning, afternoon or evening of April 18th, depending on location, is an active one, with plenty of outer planet emphasis, particularly the mystical presence of Neptune. The Sun and Moon, conjoined in late Aries, are in wide moonaspect to Neptune while Saturn remains in square. Mercury, located in the following sign of Taurus, is in close sextile with Neptune. Venus in Gemini adds to this emphasis, being in close square with Neptune and in mutual reception and semi-sextile with Mercury. This combination implies that at this important juncture that begins the next lunation cycle, the strictly logical process of cause-and-effect thinking that forms the greatest part of our awareness will be only one part of the story; unconscious process is being brought forward to an unusual degree of prominence as we contemplate life and love.

Besides the intense Neptunian influence upon this lunation, Saturn is also implicated, being closely aspected by Uranus and as well by the Sun and Moon. Uranus and Saturn make a sesquiquadrate to each other that gets closer over the remainder of the month and into the early days of May. The antithetical combination of Saturn and Neptune, and also of Saturn and Uranus, brings up the theme of the nuts-and-bolts reality of day-to-day life versus in some manner coming into touch with the ineffable.

Third Quarter Moon in Aquarius/Pisces (4:13 pm ET/8:13 pm UT): revise, realign

Wisdom Goddess: Kamala (Goddess of the Lotus, Goddess Who Leaves No One Behind)

Skill: think in reverse (what’s missing?)

moonPositive Imprints: signs and synchronicities providing solutions, ability to see far-reaching consequences and implications, promises, choosing love over fear, nurturing the physical body, reliability, like-minded people attracting, bonds, resolution of a conflict between rational and emotional

Catalysts for Change: adjustments, moving too fast or thinking too much to see what (or who)is right in front of you, fatigue from spiritual quests, neglect, over-reliance on appearances, two-faced, narrow-minded

Sabian Symbol for the Lunar Month: “a majestic rock formation resembling a face is idealized by a boy who takes it up as his ideal of greatness, and as he grows up begins to look like it”

Did you find a missing piece to something yesterday? If not, another opportunity is at hand today.

In the imagery of the Sabian symbol for this lunar month, pieces of the “rock formation” that form our “ideal of greatness” for the future hide the true form. The true form is missing until it is revealed by sculpting away the surrounding rock. We have been doing this all month, but today and tomorrow we have good tools to complete the job.

An Otherworldly and Yet Practical First Quarter Moon

moonHenry Seltzer – The First Quarter Moon taking place in the early morning hours of Friday, March 27th, is quite an interesting lunation, in part because it occupies the psychic space between two eclipses. The Sun and Moon in early Aries and Cancer, respectively, also simultaneously aspect Saturn in Sagittarius and Neptune in Pisces, being at the degree that is in the middle of their two degrees. The Aries Sun makes a forming semi-sextile to Neptune and remains trine Saturn within a degree and a half, while the Moon trines Neptune and is inconjunct to Saturn. The UranusPluto square is not triggered by these aspects, although the transformational impact of these two powerhouse planets remains quite potent, since they are still less than half a degree apart, in the wake of the recent perfection of their square, ten days ago on March 16th.

We are definitely caught in the midst of powerfully transformative times, and we all need to step up to the plate and take action in our individual lives if we are to save ourselves and our earthly environment. We benefit when we can recognize that we all make a difference, no matter how remote we might feel from the decisions of governments and corporations that seem to control our very future. We are each immensely influential, emblematic of the entire collective; with each individual act a symbolic one. It really is true, as the NY Times remarked in 2003, that the other super-power on the planet is the power of public opinion.

The New Moon and Total Solar Eclipse occurs today, and it happens at the very last degree of the zodiac. Poised on the precipice of the Second Renaissance, the panorama of majestic rock formations surrounds us.

This month is very important because it marks an end point. A cycle of time where truth and wisdom have been shadowed comes to a close. A new cycle of time that steers us back toward balance and sanity begins at the next New Moon, the New Moon in Aries on April 18, 2015. This is covered in the audio recording overview for the month, which is posted on the homepage of www.oraclereport.com. Continue reading

“The Sun’s eruption with an X-class flare, the strongest since October 24, 2014, during this window of time tells us that it empowered the energetic associated with this degree in the sky. The Sabian symbol for this degree is “fairies (nature spirits) dancing in the setting Sun.”” – L Walker

Sabian Symbol for the Lunar Month: ” a crowded public marketplace” (human interchange and exchange; self-expression)

Did you feel the X2.2-class solar flare yesterday? It occurred at 12:22 pm ET/4:22 pm UT.

The position of the Moon at the time the Sun bursts out in flare is always significant, but more is highlighted with this one. There was a 28-minute window of time yesterday when Mars and Uranus both were located exactly at 15′ Aries 00″. The Sun’s eruption with an X-class flare, the strongest since October 24, 2014, during this window of time tells us that it empowered the energetic associated with this degree in the sky. The Sabian symbol for this degree is “fairies (nature spirits) dancing in the setting Sun.” What was going on with you at sunset? What were you thinking about or doing? Were you lucky enough to see the sunset? There may be important information or confirmation for you with this. Yesterday’s energy was about being open – open to spirit and open to sharing with others. Intuition was heightened, so we were ready to receive messages. Continue reading

Sabian Symbol for the Lunar Month: “a crowded public marketplace” (human interchange and exchange; creative self-expression)

There’s a crowd gathering around the tent of the crystal ball reader in the public marketplace today. Word has it that something is afoot and everyone wants to know what’s happening.

Mars moves to the degree of “a crystal gazer” amidst a slew of energies that are generally unsettling. Much is “loading in” to the field of the future right now (more detail in this month’s audio recording of the overview of the lunar month, available on the Home page of www.oraclereport.com).

In the immediate future, all of the energy is building toward Wednesday’s massive astrological aspects. What develops under this energetic is directly seeded into the future. Continue reading
