Super Potent Taurus Moon Part One: Connecting Myths and Underworlds
The sun falls lower in the sky each day. The earth has turned the color of buckskin and one to sleep. I have been to the cemetery to talk to my ancestors. I left them food to eat, and water to drink, thoughts to comfort them. When my time comes, will I be ready? What if I don't want to die?
Mortality is the recognition of each day's purpose.

The Taurus Super Moon
Layers of power, creativity and destruction meet multiple dimensions on this November's
"super moon" starting Wednesday Evening 11-12-08 @ 10:17 PM PST.
As pointed out by the great astrologer, Richard Nolle this lunation called by the Pueblo Indians Corn Depositing Moon: Iatayaepana is one of two back to back full moons closest approach to the earth (perigee). So here we have portal that opens into a triplet of full moon SuperMoon alignments (including the closest one of the year, coming up on December 12th marks the closest approach of the year at 356567 KM distance.
When we look deeply into the astrological aspects, penetrating images and correspondences began to link thousands of years of ages, precessions, batuns. Starting with the corresponding rulers of the Moon and Sun: Venus and Pluto which actually meet on Nov. 11th @ 9:53 PM PST in the last degrees of Sagittarius adding a fiery reception. As we will see this is a time when secrets go public and the need to bond in deeply intimate form is strong. Yet change is not only in the air but in the earth, right before the exact time of this lunation on 11-12, Venus changes signs into colder Capricorn @ 7:25 AM. Unquestionably we are in a dangerous window for earthquakes, drastic weather and volcanic eruptions.
This chart set for 10:17 PM PT has fixed signs at all the angles ASC-DSC. adding more power to the entire west coast and central america. The TSQ that dominates this chart from Moon-Sun opposition across the MC-IC and in almost 90 degrees to Neptune could signify intense events from earth changes to busting of the cosmic egg. The see planted with the election on Nov. 4th and the passage of Prop. 8 has many people on edge, not just the Gay communities. If ever there was a massive shift of populations and demand for a more sustainable world, this is it!
It is finally sinking in that the Nov. 4th major opposition of Saturn-Uranus the first in a five part series of this historic alignment ending in July 2010 in early degrees of cardinal libra-aries. So the moon @ 21 Taurus 15 not only happens during a Taurid Meteor shower but being opposed by Mercury, Sun and Mars in obsessive and passionate Scorpio. A strong element of both atavistic energy along with deeper darker need for some type of vengenance or retribution is present. Again we are connecting images of the power of blood in these ritual bull slayings
Energies are indistinctly light and dark that shadows can cross with the time of flowering presented by the Mayan Sixth Day in this time accllerrated Galactic Underworld starting on the 12th. Now with this moon we have the light as represented by the Azetec Goddess of flowers We are also Mysteries of Mithras (also Mithraism) The Mithraic Mysteries or Mysteries of Mithras was a mystery religion practised in the Roman Empire, best attested in Rome and Ostia, Mauretania, Britain and in the provinces along the Rhine and Danube frontier. These rituals were deeply Chthonic (from "of the earth", from khthōn "earth"; pertaining to the Earth; earthy; subterranean) which connects them to Pluto and pertains to, deities or spirits of the underworld. On this lunation we have connections from as far back as the Age of Taurus and the consequential Mithraic Mysteries
to the Eleusian Mysteries held every year for the cult of Demeter and Persephone based at Eleusis in ancient Greece. As we will see in Part Two of this writing, Demeter, the goddess of agriculture and fertility and her daughter Persephone (abducted by her uncle, Hades, the god of death and the underworld relates to the Aztec Goddess XOCHIQUETZAL who rules the Mayan 6th Day in this Galactic Underworld cycle. Like Persephone,Xochiquetzal or Yohualticitl ruler of flowers, fertility, games, dancing and agriculture, was kidnapped and taken from her husband, Tlaloc, to the underworld by Tezcatlipoca a lord of the underworld.
