Since I did succumb to a fit of madness, I want to make substantial amends.” (Book 9, ll. 124-125)
A lunation in the sign of the twin flames of consciousness and subconscious @
3 degrees Gemini 28 minutes offers multiple perspectives.
The Sabian Symbol for 4 degrees Gemini: An opulent Roman feast, a guest offers a toast to the gods. Invisible to the crowd Bacchus
wearing a wreath of holly and cherries, pours gifts of the spirit from a corncupia.
Even with all the errors, misjudgements and uncaring actions on the planet, this is a brief window to fell the divine manifesting in everyday life.
These are historic times as the first Jupiter/Neptune exact conjunction occurs on May 27th @ 4:12 PM PDT with Chiron who is point fingers at all kinds of collective and symbolical wounds is close behind. Before we shed more light on Chironic effects enhanced of the meeting of Zeus and Poseidon where one bears Thurnderbolts and the other was known as "Earth-Shaker," of earthquakes we need to look at another asteroid Pandora.
Pandora was created by the Gods and Goddesses to unique gifts. Zeus ordered Hephaestus to mould her out of Earth as part of the punishment of mankind for Prometheus' theft of the secret of fire, and all the gods joined in offering this "beautiful evil" seductive gifts.
In the chart, Pandora 55 @ 26 Aquarius 22 minutes is closely conjunct Jupiter-Chiron-Neptune...Legends have it that Anesidora, "she who sends up giftos pened a jar (pithos) in many accounts referred to as "Pandora's box", releasing all the evils of mankind— although the particular evils are not specified in detail — leaving only Hope inside once she had closed it again. With Gemini Sun/Moon trine N Node, Pandora might have opened the jar out of simple curiosity and not as a malicious act but in any case it is opened whether we talk of DNA manipulation or taking DNA samples from felony arrest suspects to the UK's National Licence Plate Surveillance Grid which Tracks Anti-War Protesters.
Pluto/Hades seems to be involved in all the increasing Orwellian tactics which will be
under the scrutiny of the divine energies now on earth.
Another story that reflects the Triple conjunction and it's symbolism of beliefs, faith and politics was the Sikh guru visiting Austria from India, who was shot yesterday. Mars-Venus in Aries may have triggerd the violence that ensued. Thousands protested in the Indian state of Punjab Monday, torching a train, vehicles and shops after a Sikh preacher was killed Sunday in an attack on a temple in Austria's capital Vienna.
Chiron won't be exactly conjunct Neptune till 2010 and will meet multiple times.
Already teh effect has been devastating. On a group sense a Chironic story to help all humanity learn how to not abusing others: 200,000 Tamil civilians imprisoned in Sri Lankan Manik Farm camp. On a personal side with the YOD formed between Pluto in Capricorn-Sun/Moon
-South Node in Leo sign of children we will see more stories like Mike Tyson’s Daughter Critically Injured in Accident. Details tell of the shadow of Algol (noted below) May 25 (Bloomberg) -- Retired boxer Mike Tyson’s 4-year-old daughter is on life support after her neck was injured by a treadmill cable...
Royal Stars and the Unexpected
In the above chart three of the Royal stars of Persia are represented from Antares, a red binary star, known as the heart of th e constellation Scorpio. Antares is rising as the Moon is setting - telling of emotional turmoil and major drama. Antares was known to cause discord, sedition, conspiracy against princes and rulers, and revenge from enemies,
Fomalhaut is setting as Jupiter is Setting offering a type of charismatic force dealing with philosophical causes. Finally Regulus is Culminating with Mercury speaking of the reception of recognition, provided one avoids intrigue.
Sunday's New Moon (May 24th @ 8:11 AM EDT) brought panicky feelings even bordering on madness with the North Korean leader, Kim Jong-il, challenges from many sources including the Triple Aquarian Conjunction to help lift the boundaries from unexpected actions from foreign sources including North and South Korea. The second nuclear test conducted by N Korea and he North Korean leader, Kim Jong-il sparked outrage from the world community especially coming just 24 hours after South Korean former president Roh Moo-Hyun committed suicide. IN typical Jupiter/Neptune fashion involving corruption and scandal of the most high: his shocking death by apparent suicide came as he faced a massive corruption scandal.
Back to Kim Jong-il who suffered a massive heart attack last August reflects those royal stars in the DC chart like Regulus Culminating as Mercury is Culminating which tells of receiving recognition, provided one avoids intrigue.
Other kingly stars in the DC Lunation chart are Diadem culminating with Venus dealing with compromise especially with Mercury Retrograde and ready to station.
Also Alphecca a brilliant white star in the Northern Crown or Corona Borealis which is rising with Mars to portend war like situations.
Like last Full Moon over DC we have Menkar has the Heliacal rising star which according to Robson is primarily ill fortune - causing disease, disgrace, ruin, injury from beasts, sickness, and loss of fortune. If we just had to worry about it would be a piece of cake but Algol is in the picture. In fact Algol, the a bright star positioned on the severed head that Perseus is carrying, is culminating with Jupiter adding to powerful obsessions and beheadings. Algol is about power both gained and lost with the famous and infamous all over the news.
Speculation about a successor has focused on his youngest son, Kim Jong-un, which would continue the family dynasty to the third generation — one unique among Communist nations.
Unless we seem to only focus on the more difficult and malefic efects of this new moon lets look at Sadalmelek (the Lucky One of the King, sometimes given as Al Sa'd al Mulk, ) also known as the Lucky One of the Kingdom is setting as the Sun is culminating which offers some powerful optimism. Sadalmelek found in the right shoulder of the constellation Aquarius, not only indicates a detached even fixed attitude where prominence in occultism is evident - Angels and Demons movie opened recetnly.
