Summer Solstice & the New Moon * Peace Train

We are moving into the days of a new life on Earth

June New Moon and Summer Solstice

Each month the moon ebbs and flows through a timeless cycle of growth and release. The New Moon signals our time to take stock and begin anew. Luna again embraces the sign of Gemini. Last month the New Moon of May 20th began its cycle at 0 Gemini, and the New Moon of June is in the last, critical degree of Gemini. The 29th of any sign is known as an ‘anaretic’ , or decision making degree. Thus, the astrological lineup of June delivers us to a turning point. Many critical decisions are being made on the world front; Greece decides on its position within the EU, the EU shuffles about madly in defense of the Euro, and the G-20 meets to position a financial future of the world. There is a lot going on!

Saturn stations direct on the 25th, and Neptune balanced the hourglass by stationing retrograde on the 4th. In my perfect world, this uncovers hidden agendas and promotes the discipline of reality. Some people place their hope in extraterrestrial intervention; others pray for divine intercession. There is much talk on the internet about a battle between the ‘good guys’ vs. the ‘bad guys.’ Fortunately, it is a law of nature that the ‘good guys’ will win; it’s just a matter of when. The answer lies in just how far the sands of time have sifted through that hourglass – and when we land on the other side of the tipping point.

The Summer Solstice is one such measure of an earthly tipping point. Each year on or around June 21st the sun reaches its maximum northern height, stands still for 3 days, and then begins its journey back to the southern zones. This annual cycle is a poetic expression of the relationship between Mother Earth Gaia, and the Sun.  And this year, wrapped within the wave of an emerging new consciousness, we each claim the right and responsibility to live our personal truth. The time we have waited for so long is upon us, and although we are bound by an unknowable measure of time, it is certain that with the changing of the season, we are also experiencing the dawn of a brand new world.

Taking place in the last degree of the sign, and on the last day of the season, the New Moon of June 20th is old and wise. While being delivered to counsel and critical decisions on the world front, we also feel the weight of these days personally. You may be tired, but remain grateful for your intelligence that assists you in understanding and making plans.  Thought and curiosity are the gifts of Gemini.

Much has been said and done, yet we await opportunity and the right timing. Things will happen very quickly.  The next Full Moon occurs on July 3rd is conjunct Pluto, the planet of transformation. Know that these last days of June will serve as a nursery to radical change. And, trust that the earth, planets, and stars will continue on the PeaceTrain mission and deliver us to a bright and positive future.

Venus Transit * Goddess Love

Venus delivers not only love; she is returning what has been taken away.

Where Were You in 2004?

The Venus transit of 2012 is returning something you lost eight years ago. Think back. The details will be revealed by an analysis of the Gemini house in your natal chart. Do you remember where you were for the 2004 Venus transit? I do. I was at the beach in south Florida.

Transits of Venus across the face of the Sun are among the rarest phenomena, and they occur in a pair separated by 8 years, and then another pair 121.5 years later, and another pair in 105.5 years. Then the cycle repeats. The next pair of Venus transits occurs not until 2117/2125.

Intimately tied with this Venus event is the ancient Sumerian story of Inanna.  It's a story I love to tell, but, have told it so many times, that I will refer to an older article .[LINK HERE]

When looking for meaning in celestial happenings, one of the best ways is to analyze transpired during previous cycles. History reveals that this cycle of Venus correlates with scientific and social advances. And, oh yes, the Queen Mother celebrates her Jubilee, all in perfect timing.

The pattern of Venus cycles forms a 5 pointed star, or Mystic Rose, a fundamental theme in explaining the mysteries of nature

Let’s travel further back in time, to the Venus transit cycle of 1631/ 1639. Galileo, perhaps the first person in his day to view the Venus transit through his telescope was bravely insisting that the sun, not the Earth was the center of the solar system. Rene Descartes, the Father of Modern Psychology, also developed a unique mathematical system known as analytical geometry. The Catholic Church remained powerful, but was facing challenges from France and Holland, and struggled to integrate the Ethiopian Christians.

The Venus transit cycle of 1761 – 1769: Britain celebrated military success over France and Spain; however, the American colonies were brewing what would eventually be a huge loss for the mother land. The Anglican Church was established. In 1768, sugar consumption (sweets are ruled by Venus), which began among the Arabs and had been limited to Europe's wealthy, became popular among all classes. Islands in the Caribbean were the great producers of sugar, using labor supplied by slaves. World exploration expanded to the far off islands of Tahiti. The first encyclopedia was completed, and banned by the Catholic Church. The Seven Years war comes and goes.

1874 – 1882. Electricity became available to the public. The telephone, light bulbs, and recording equipment were all invented. The Theosophical society and Christian Science movement were both founded in 1875.

Venus can literally also be 'Hell on Wheels!'

So, our upcoming dance with Venus is an opportunity to welcome Divine feminine energy, and the Goddess has much to share. Look for changes in technology, new thought, and social advances. On June 8th, she disappears from the evening sky (god save the Queen) and will not be seen again until she re-emerges as the morning Goddess on June 13th and she again begins her dance in the sky. In keeping with the ancient story, Venus/Ishtar/Inanna returns as the glorious Goddess of the morning sky, to again reign in splendor.

For the ancients, Venus as the Morning Star was linked to the protective side of warfare; her presence was a signal to do battle for positive results. Personally, we may have to claim our returned prize, but, know that now is your time for victory.

I trust that our New Age goddess will abhor war, and that she is empowered to care for all of her children.

555 and the State of the World * Scorpio Full Moon

The Full Moon we experience this evening is a perigee ‘super moon’, closer to the earth than average.

Not only does this May Full Moon bring us to Wesak,  the traditional celebration of the life and enlightenment of Buddha, it also lands in the 15 – 16th  degree of Scorpio, a portal known as ‘the Gate of the Avatar’.

The Avatar gates are found in the middle degrees of each of the fixed signs; Taurus, Leo, Aquarius, and Scorpio. The term ‘Avatar’ implies a fully free soul, incarnating directly from God, and comes to earth to fulfill a highly spiritual task.

The symbology of 555 is a call for us to each become co-creators with Spirit. Five is a number of creativity, and manifesting form through play and intelligence. And, now that the Age of Aquarius has moved us beyond Saviors; we are all given the opportunity to save ourselves, and each other.The numerology of March 5, 2012, combined with our Scorpio Full Moon, lights up a significant gateway for empowerment and transformation.

March 5th has been declared ‘World Liberation Day’ by some; this is an appropriate call for action to infuse the number 5 into our essence. Kabbalah teaches that the fifth cycle of creation embodies the World of Action, or the Fruit, of the Tree of Life. In keeping with the astrological sign of Scorpio, the number 5 is considered as the mediator between God and the universe; an institution of free will choice, and the process of creation.

Here are a few facts about the number 5:

There are 5 major parts to the Tree of Life

Five is the numerical value of the Hebrew letter ‘HE’ representing the passive principle by excellence. (of Yah, He, Vav, He – the ‘I AM' sequence that speaks thought into creation.) ‘HE' represents “a solar ray of Universal Life pouring on the earth its beneficial rain of life.”  Manifestations of the Deity are expressed in five phases to form the Tree of Life:

1. Source or Seed–The Ain Soph Aur or Adam Kadmon

2. Root –World of Emanation of Atziluth

3. Tree –World of Creation or Briah

4. Branch –World of Formation or Yetzirah

5. Fruit –World of Action or Assiah

There are five oceans and five parts of the geographical world: Europe, Asia, Africa, America, Oceania. The five elements in Chinese theory are: water, fire, wood, metal, ground. Even computers get in on the action; millions of computers are running on Intel's “Pentium Processor.”

The number 5 repeats often in the Human Body

The number 5 is of course, also found in several places on the human body: the five fingers of the hand and feet, the five senses (touch, taste, smell, hearing and sight), and the five members (two arms, two legs and the head.

The highest military rank a 5 star general, who wears 5, 5 pointed gold stars. So a “soldier,” or Sun warrior, wearing 5, 5pointed golden stars most certainly resonates strongly the male principle/energy.

Modern occultists believe 5 to be the Number of Death – this fits nicely with a Scorpio Moon. The greatest intensification of any number is its triplicate, making 555 literally “Highest Death.” Could this be why the highest military rank (5 star generals) wears 5, 5 pointed stars on their uniform? Also notable is the US Pentagon building which is formed of 5 concentric pentagons, with an inner court of exactly 5 acres.

Nearby, is the Washington Monument which is exactly 555 feet high.

The pentagram has long been believed to be a potent protection against evil, a symbol of conflict that shields the wearer and the home. The pentagram has five spiked wards and a womb shaped defensive, protective pentagon at the center.

But, it's not really about evil; rather just the opposite! We are all Sun beings now, and we are meant to reclaim our innocence and to be free.  Embrace the energy of creation and protection that this celestial event delivers this evening. Remember, at Full Moon, you can observe the Moon rising in the east as the Sun sets in the West. Get out this evening, and partake of this amazing energy.

Sacred Geometry teaches that the Universe is made of 5 basic forms

May 2012 * What’s Going On * Scorpio Full Moon

 

Maya White - What's Going On?
Astrology is one of your best tools for problem solving. Book your personalized and professional consultation with Maya White NOW

This month we have a dynamic full moon in Scorpio on the 5th, and an energizing new moon Solar eclipse on the 20th. The May Full Moon, also known as WESAK, signals an annual celebration of the life, enlightenment, and even the death of Buddha. All over the world festivals and celebrations are held to commemorate the life of the Buddha. This Full Moon is made all the more powerful by the nearness of the Moon to the earth – when the moon is perigee, or close to the earth, we feel the impact through our emotional state. The Full Moon of May 5th is in the deep sign of Scorpio, so, hidden issues to come out and be revealed by the light of Luna.

Mercury leaves feisty Aries and settles into grounded Taurus on the 8th. In Taurus, we can expect slow and deliberate communications – this may drive some people crazy, but, it also keeps things honest and relatively transparent. Pay attention on the 13th when Mercury joins the planet of good luck, Jupiter – this is a time to expect, and receive some good news. Also, Mercury interacts with Mars on this day – this dynamic energy keeps the good things rolling along. On Monday the 14th, Mercury then forms a favorable trine to Pluto – this time period of mid may should deliver some of the good things we hoped for and that were promised by the grand earth trine that occurred in March.

Mercury travels very quickly through Taurus and enters Gemini on the 24th.  Mercury is then in the sign of his rulership – Gemini. The pace of everyday life will quicken, so take time to tie up loose ends so that you don’t feel as though you are on a never ending roller coaster by the end of May.

We also welcome a New Moon solar eclipse on the 20th – again, in the 1st degree of Gemini. Many people still have a fear or dread around eclipses. I enthusiastically encourage you to welcome the re-set that an eclipse brings. This one in Gemini is no exception – expect the unexpected, yes, but, also welcome the opportunities that come – and especially – pay attention to messages. Your deepest longings will be answered if you ask correctly. What we need at this time is truth – fact not fiction. As an air, or intellectual sign, Gemini prompts us to engage understanding and reality.

I will be sending more information on the upcoming eclipses, as well as the Venus transit of June 5th.

Another important player in the time ahead is Chiron. As he lingers at 9 degrees of Pisces, he is in constant interaction with Pluto – expect a time of healing to come for us all.  With all good blessings and wishes for the month ahead.
