Taurus Full Moon and the Mayan Sixth Day Part Two
The Taurus full moon ( Nov. 12/13th ) becomes another focal point for November's shift with the Sabian symbol for 22 Taurus: "a white dove over troubled waters" planting the seed for peace. Looking at a chart set for November 13th at 1:17 AM EDT, a Mercury-Sun-Mars Scorpio lineup opposes the value oriented moon in the 9th. Here we have a major focus on transforming our current communication and transportation systems as we began to focus on local neighborhoods vs. putting all our energies into foreign affairs. Pluto, Venus and Juno are together in the 4th house trine Ceres (12th) and Vesta (8th) all in earth which signifies the people versus the government making changes with agriculture, farming, crops, land, houses, real estate finally.
Ahau - Lord of the Sun Promises Understanding today.
Today's Tzolkin Date: Galactic Tone (12) and Sacred Sun Sign (Ahau-Sun) Let the sun shine within, let go of disdain and resentments while encouraging artistic, musical, heroic and visionary pursuits Chiron, the deeper teacher of this current cycle now direct in Aquarius @ 16 degrees and opposing Mercury in Scorpio allowing sensitive communications to heal all. More then likely we will began to start a major dialogue about how ancient enemies like Israel and Palestine can create peace and healing.
New Goddess in Town
Incidentally this lunation occurs on the start of the Day Six of the Galactic Underworld (Nov. 2008 – Nov. 2009). The 6th Day Is a time of renaissance in each cycle and the last sixth day during the Planetary Cycle was 1955 to 1972 noted for Flower Children, The Beatles, orbital satellites and global communication systems. . During the 6th Day of the National Cycle was right when the European Renaissance happened. The Full Moon commences a time when opportunities abound as the Aztec Goddess Xochiquetzal or Yohualticitl ruler of flowers, fertility, games, dancing and agriculture takes the baton from Tezcatlipoca the the god of darkness, the night, the north, temptation, sorcery and war. Get ready for a new renaissance illed with life and death challenges...
Mighty T-Square in Fixed Signs Demands Sustainability on All Levels
An analysis of the major changes symbolized in the chart above for the east coast and in my previous Part One for the west coast demonstrates how this shift marks a change in conciousness for humanity. The already massive acceleration in time and cultural change with Saturn-Virgo (green awareness) in the 1st house still in orb to the Uranus-Pisces (massive spiritual shift) meets the fixed powers of Scorpio-Taurus-Aquarius. The Fixed TSQ harvests the energies from the fixed squares in 2005 when Mars was retrograde in Taurus. Mars representing the male-dominant force for the last 5,000+ years of wars and aggressions is again in Scorpio like 2006 when the passage of Pluto (ruler) was nearing the Galactic Center a time of great shifts for everyone. Looking at the Sabian for 22 degrees Scorpio from a different interpretation" we see a primary disgust with the trappings of war: "A soldier home from war sees his sweetheart standing by the calm waters of the mill pond. Dropping his gun, he runs to embrace her." If ever there was a time to Make Love Not War, it is now.
A Revolution is Afoot.
Neptune now direct in the revolutionary sign of Aquarius and progenitor to the ideals of democracy along with the confusion is another pillar in this TSQ on todays Full Moon.
Again looking at the Sabian Symbol for 22 Aquarius (from the Zodiac by Degrees) we get an idea of how both rebellion and revolution from Uranus the ruler manifests: "Guerrilla group runs along zigzagging, boulder-strewn mountain ridge in order to head off a munitions train." The danger of outright anarchy is high as many people are demanding social justice during a time of major liberaton of minds and bodies.
Now as we transition into the Mayan 6th day away from the clutches of Tezcatlipoca a lord of the underworld into the arms of Xochiquetzal's flower kingdom, who was also worshiped under the name Tonacacihuatl, meaning "Sustenance-Woman" Not only has the revolution of locally grown community agriculture taken hold but the need for a sustainable economy of local goods of all kinds is thriving. Now it is time for a true Green Festival.
With three planets in Scorpio indicating a non-sustainable debt that has increased for homeowners and families and Pluto-Venus now in Capricorn along with Ceres, dramatic changes to bolster up our foreclosure crisis will arise. Solutions will be proposed in this transforming process which will continue into 2009. Interestingly Mars now in Scorpio till November 16th has been in a functional SQ to the Pluto in Leo natal chart for the Baby Boomers. As Mars the older ruler of Scorpio makes an ingress into Sagittarius the SQ then falls upon a new generation right when the haze of the results of the election have subsided. Pluto squares are pivotal in getting rid of bad habits, dealing with joint finances and with Mars or Venus involved a total alchemical event involving the death of the ego can occur just as the phoenix rises from his ashes. Not to be really melodramatic but with Pluto changing signs for the next 14 years into Capricorn on November 26th the lower consciousness symbolized by the scorpion is about to be forged by the fires of this mighty quest.
