Occulting the Moon

Antares Alpha Scorpius

Antares Alpha Scorpius

When one celestial body is passing over another it is said to “occult” and today as seen in the chart of the moment (shown below) (as per NASA and not Astrologers) the Sun and Moon occult in Scorpius.

Today NASA and I agree that the occult-ed (eclipse) Moon and Sun takes place (not in Sagittarius) but rather in the sign of Scorpius which is in the (stationary) Taoist sign of the wild Boar often called the pig.

Penumbral Lunar Eclipse of May 25

“The second lunar eclipse of the year again occurs at the Moon’s ascending node in Scorpius about 7° northwest of Antares (mv = +1.07). With a penumbral eclipse magnitude [6] of 0.0158, just 0.5 arc-minutes of the Moon’s southern limb will pass into Earth’s pale penumbral shadow; such a shallow eclipse is only of academic interest since it will be all but impossible to detect.” (Unquote)

Notably NASA places it where it belongs in the Northwest which is the feng shui location assigned to the Pig (aka, Boar or formerly Scorpio) in the Flying Stars.

The Flying Stars system is not outside of our atmosphere but rather the energies we can attune with, or the fields of energy that move and change here on Earth. The section where this eclipse falls governs the primary area in the NW known as benefits, mentors and LUCK!

Why is there a difference?

Modern (western/Greek) astrologers do not use or follow the actual placement of Astro-bodies (celestial spheres) because they adhere to following the old sky formation of were the stars aligned from its origins and mixes that material in with our modern world. Hence some people find astrology unpredictable and confusing.

But for the mass majority of modern astrologers (sheep following sheep, perhaps) even though they adhere to it like religion – it’s not a great fit. As you can see Astrologers and Astronomers (or rather modern measuring devices) position these aspects in contradictory locations. The pig is all about contradictory controversies and unearthing them!!

So a person can ask themselves, do I want to live in the past or can I adapt and change to the present?

NASA follows the stars in the sky where they actually align to track (and record) the functioning of our cosmic wonder with measuring devices that far exceed what was possible when astrology (study of the stars and Peoples fortunes in relation to them) originated.

The premise of flying stars and feng shui is “change” and adapting to it, in order to find and acquire “harmonies” in life both cosmic-ly and physically. Therefore the correct (or corrected) alignment of “Heaven and Earth” is primary for personal fortunes to be both authentic and lasting.

My work with the Flying Star system is based on the Magic Square, a natural, number pattern phenomenon that relates to fields of energy here on Earth. In my private practice I attune these patterns into a relationship to flow-through with outside energies coming from space.

It took me the better part of my lifetime to correct this imbalance (mentioned above between astronomers and astrologers) so that I could realign these systems to harmonize and interlock. In this way I have the added benefit of being able to correspond both (heaven and earth) to our compass and our known, perceivable reality in the present moment.

Hence my favorite pastime (which is really a life-calling) of bridging the cosmic wonder with the natural world is born.

Most people don’t seem to really care, or they fear change and would rather read their daily scopes in the paper or online in their email box. These kinds of fortunes are commonly generated by a computer that uses an ancient sky view rather than align them properly with their real world. But they can be fun and occasionally illuminating.

Admittedly our cosmic wonder is a moving parts system (flying through space in time) and it took me from about age 8 or 9 as a child until well into my adult years, at age 36 (in 1995) to figure out the puzzle. In order to align the system 1st it needed to be reset to its starting position. Otherwise, like others before me I would just repeat their mistakes.

Once I located that zero point (ground zero is also a pig-ish theme) I could synchronize the placements with the locations where our planet earth is now. Which allows me to be able to functionally use a compass and NASA or Space satellite technology for increased accuracy. I can check my work.

And I was only able to complete the complex calculations correctly because the answer was “given” to me in a lucid dream delivered by the stars. Upon awaking from this dream I tried the calculations from this new, fresh perspective (star view) and shazzama-rama, it worked!

Heliocentric Cosmos

Heliocentric Cosmos

On the Solar day of my birth year in 1959 planet Jupiter (the Grand Duke) sits in Scorpius (secrets) in a harmonic with planet, Neptune, the God of the underworld. So I can naturally see what is invisible to others and for me it is very real.

No surprise then I spent many years of my life (in this turn of the wheel) unearthing mysteries in an investigation capacity with prominent men in a global forum. Due to this harmonic conjunction of wills I’ve been fortunate but also cursed (can’t escape it) in a manner of speaking, to be tied to this work.

It’s not that anyone ever asked me to do this mountain of work in the outer world. Instead I have been driven hard by the knowledge I pre-possesed at an early age, in this regard. My recollection (personal history) of past and future lives is known to me and it serves as an guiding interior presence that prods and pushes me constantly. Like a moth to the flame I can’t stay away. Ah persistence!

Because the old systems of our modern forms of astrology skirt and scrim around the newer ones there is some meaning gathered and generated on the edges. That is not valueless or baseless (one need not throw out the babe in the bathwater) but the accuracy is not laser pointed or predictable. Its funky-dunky, hit or miss.

The real world I live in prizes accuracy and authenticity over lip-syncing with an old or pre-recording. This old world view co-mingling in our present world thus places the eclipse in Sagittarius.

Though in actuality it rides through the cosmos (from our heliocentric observations) in Scorpius (le piggy) where it “crosses” the heart of Antares.

So for those of you who want to know this sort of real world Astro Fortuna, let’s focus on where we are and not spend anytime on where we are not.

Wheel of Fortunes

Fortuna wheel from an edition of Boccaccio’s “De Casibus Virorum Illustrium”

Today we have a Lunar Eclipse in the sign of the Pig.

The pig (or more specifically wild Boar) is the station on the equatorial beltway (the center band of our planet Earth) that once corresponded with the (western/Greek astrology) sign of Scorpio.

That constellation (stars out in space) is Scorpius which contains the star Antares. The star Antares is in the heart of Scorpius which is where this occult-ring begins.

Our Earth’s eclipse crosses the heart of Scorpius (Boar/pig) in Antares which is home to a place known as the Royal Stars of Persia.

As mentioned above, it is shown here is the “chart of the moment” supplied by Astro.com. This chart shows the ecliptic occult-ation at 26 degrees Scorpius now having recently crossed over Saturn and the North Node (ascending – not descending) and it is correct.

That means in our western hemisphere something was unearthed over night to reveal an ongoing disturbance that is yet unresolved. In Pig talk this phenom is called digging in the dirt pile. In ancient mysticism there is a saying, that “what you resist will persist” and in the pigs (Scorpius) realm they know all about persistent. In fact they bank on it. These are the themes of what will be revealed in the heart of these regal stars. Certainly fitting for a pig.

Victory Luck!

Rat ~ Sagittarius

Luck stars will hold so long as you are bold and stay strong! Recently you’ve turned the heads of a few aspiring minds so don’t let the luck stars go to waste or down the drain. Keep to the straight and narrow and you’ll find cupids arrow is pointing in your charming and witty direction.

Ox ~ Capricorn

Keep the cat in the bag? No I don’t think so – better let it out or your luck will be stifled and trifled. Cows have an axe to find and its time to get the ducks inline. Hop-to it and do something about it. Don’t just chew-on-it (talk/talk) or you’ll disintegrate all your grand designs. The days to-do are still in front of you so don’t get caught slacking on anyone’s dime, or trust me you’ll live to regret it.

Tiger – Aquarius

The tiger is the Boars secret buddy so expect mysteries to float-up to the surface. With a full moon brimming over there is sure to be a resurgence some kind that gives you a (open) window into seeing what you clearly missed the first time. Luck is measured and prescribed in tiny increments that can slip through cracks and slide through crevices. Watch-it, or a karmic debt can spill over and mess up a good thing, indefinitely.

Hare ~ Pisces

Luck stars form a classic niche of togetherness in the pig’s triad where bunny luck goes on and on and on. Looks like green lights and grassy knolls bring star studded adventures that can lead you to a buried treasure. Good luck as these puffy, lucky, sparklers align you with a life of self-assured, self-reliance that can be shared, quite nicely.

Dragon ~ Aries

There is still a cauldron bubbling and boiling along dividing lines. The belching noise and sparks it throws are disturbing. Stay in the cave, keep to the low road where new luck can grow. The heat will eventually bake down to a bigger set of better ends but right now the tops are turfy. Don’t swerve or you’ll loose your nerve to stay the course. If you get tipsy you might go a bit bonkers. Caution is wise.

Serpent ~ Taurus

Lucky strikes happen in the most unlikely places but they take things away in order to let you stand on Tera firmly. The monster you’ve been riding is soon to be transforming right before your very eyes. Until it does just stare down the barrel of this wicked funnel and send a message loud and clearly. Does anybody hear me? There is magic in believing. Keep sending …to soon be receiving.

Horse – Gemini

The pony set is flying blind and should come down from any lofty space until lucky stars can hold you in place. This full house of cards is missed matched and starting to cause alarm. Things are not always what they seem so perhaps you can stop looking at the gift horse in the mouth or risk getting a back bite that won’t heal quickly.

Goat ~ Cancer

Lucky stars are on hiatus so it’s better not take any unnecessary chances. Careful consideration toward the lower classes is highly advised or you’ll find yourself on the losing side. Color inside the lines of good graces and seek to erase past mistakes and untangle your fractions. Being that you are in the Pigs triad this eclipse offers you a morale, super-booster so let that old goat out of the pen and get past any billy-goat gruffness.

Monkey ~ Leo

Monkey see, monkey do which leads to a whole lotta turmoil and terrible, trouble. Your luck stars are not yet improved so any time you don’t mind your P’s & cues chaos gets ahead of you. The higher mind must be divined. You might try to mediate and ruminate while this situation percolates. In due time surely you may find, yet a better method or mode to fashion the undoing. Then you can start something much better brewing.

Bird ~ Virgo

While Luck stars are getting in formation this is a good time to prepare the station, clean and scrub and ru-a-dub until all your virtues shine, sublime. The sky’s the limit but first things first or your lucky tail feathers will be trimmed to the nubbins. Healing begins when you stop deceiving yourself and others. Blow out that old head case and get set for a whole new game plan to begin.

Dog ~ Libra

Dogs are sitting pretty in a cushy, seat bound for glory. Snuggle in and enjoy the ride. This parcel of lucky stars is set on auto glide. If you try to change them or rearrange them they may flip-upside down and inside out, so don’t go messing around or fiddling with the bigger magic, attune with it, gladly. And then everyone will love you madly!

Boar ~ Scorpio

Cross your heart and reach for the sky. Your lucky stars may seem invisible but they will hold you aloft while the rest of the stars signs are watching nearby. What’s goes up must come down in order to make room for the wheel to grind. The north node is already ascending and will reach new heights! Luck shines bright so primp and prime, get ready for your personal spotlight!!

Mother Moon ~ the Goat full, yin, moon is a 13th bonus moon in 2012!! Jupiter in later stages of the Horse sign will align with the moon in the goat. This will be visible in the sky.

Posting your Lucky Stars & Signs for the Goat Full moon cycle, on 12/28-12 until the New Moon in the Ox sign on 1/11-2013.

A full moon in the goat resides in the SW on the compass and is the universal direction of love and relationships. It is an Earth sector (or palace) and can be grounding and centering for the emotional realm. It is home to Matriarch luck and happy, harmonious couples.

Moon rules emotions and moods so this moon is likely to hit a sore spot for many. There are some pretty intense planetary motions happening behind the scenes to get tangled up in. The last time some of these configurations aligned we had the birth of a new nation during the American revolution.

The Goat and the Monkey signs share the SW compass points. The Goat desires peace while the monkey drives ambition. During this goat moon get some extra sleep to counterbalance the high peaks on the emotional scales.

There is an abnormally long Void-of-Course moon period (v/c moon makes no connections before changing stations) going on-and-off for long stints, from Thursday through to Monday night on the 31st. This ball of yarn will unravel of it’s own accord. Go slow and lay low, then party on new years eve!

The sheep set can be quite temperamental when they don’t manage expectations and lower the threshold for their extra, curricular activities. Less is more, so pace yourself through this timeline. Monday night the scene looks bright and there’s a green light on all fun festivities!!

New years eve is a Monkey moon. It’s adventuresome and also a bit tricky. This will be a post-full moon and it will still have plenty of “emotional turmoil” to spare. The Sun is in the Ox with Mercury and Venus, soon to follow. The inner rim planets make new years eve a cavalcade of stars in a spectacular fashion. The night could wind-up  wonton debauchery or a be sublime, on cloud nine.

The Monkey may need a tether to keep from flying off the handle. But the playful monkey will put a new spin in the coming year and get things off to a great start. I’d suggest going out to celebrate rather than staying in this year. Let the good times roll right into 2013.

Chinese Lunisolar, New Year is on February 10, 2013. We’ve still got plenty of opportunity to introduce the overall theme for the coming events on the Chinese calendar in 2013. Its a year for expressions and breakthroughs as (3) is a yin, wood star, year. Feminine expressions of beauty will be heralded and praised.

Jupiter, the Giant

Jupiter, the Giant

Just like Western, Greek and Vedic astrology there are variables that no longer align with our planet that need adjusting. In that way 2013 is a time of new beginnings and readjustments. This is a Bonus round as the 13th full moon of 2012 so enjoy the extra dimension it expands in your world.

The Solar year corresponds to the changing patterns of the “Flying Stars” (fields of energy) and/or number cycles of the magic square. The Chinese Solar year begins on the first day of Spring, February 4, 2013.

Rat New Moon

Earth, there's no place like home.

Earth, there’s no place like home.

This is a fresh, lively, New Rat Moon with all the exotic tastes and trimmings of it’s esthetic rule. But this new moon is also being co-hosted by the illustrious Pig in the land of Saturn’s realm. The rat sign is pig’s peach blossom animal for increased social and love luck, to boot.

This Saturn transit casts a silvery, shadow (like a winning streak or a stroke of genius) upon things with it’s mercurial hue. It’s a powerful theme, it’s the stuff of legends and hierarchy, building.

Empires will fade and crumble or be revived and assembled. Rest assured a new captain at the wheel will set things in motion from a different angle with a new point of view. It’s a brave new world.

The pig is a Gourmand in chopping, dicing and carving up everyday portions to give each and everyone, a delicious, slice-of life. They like to break-bread, break the-ties-that-bind and to bring others to the table. They add the spice to life with a liberal, slight-of-hand. Kicking tires, sniffing wine or recalibrating secret codes… pigs charm and alarm on a grand scope and epic scale.

Star Explodes

Star Explodes

Editing meticulous, tedious details to craft and refine a cohesive storyline in life’s daily narrative. These are the cutters, shakers and movie makers of the world. Pigs push around mountains in order to speak directly to power in an entertaining and fascinating manner. They can assume the role of boss with or without invitation.

The Boar sign is arcane with high magic and rare medicines. This space rules the land of the scorpion and centipede, the eagle and the fox. It features many tools of metal trades (gem cutters and surgeons galore) to include the pen, the sword and the olfactory perfumist.

Pig’s can smell a rat (a mile away), track a scent better than dogs and discover buried treasure by following their gut. Then run amok better than a duck. And in a down-pour, these folks are fun! They carry parachutes and umbrellas. Muck-racking is in their vocabulary. Let that be a lead, or a lesson to you, whichever applies.

The pig persona will not be censored and breathes life into “grave” matters of death and the dearly departed so that ultimate justice to prevail. Spirits will all rise and the dead can speak their mind.

Star Death

Star Death

Using unorthodox, novel and inventive means to achieve what meets their needs, they often receive astonishing results for a concentrated effort. Set against all odds these people will succeed. Bet your bottom dollar on it and it will be commemorated.

The Pig’s friends are the woodland bunny, stream fishes and the fawn in the meadow. The pig likes it’s pastures, grasslands, prairies and parks kept squeaky clean. They talk to the mice out in the field for regular reports. Expect due diligence on environmental concerns. The custodial pig likes things kept scrupulously pristine! Slobs and hogs …need not apply.

Tiger signs will benefit immensely. It’s practically a-given that they will receive all the time, money and resources they ask for. Sort out sources previously, unexplored or unknown. So long as you can clearly and concisely address a need for it, you will get it. They are the tried and true, trusted confidantes of the Boar team. As best buddies they can pursue accomplishments to unearth skullduggery and blow-the-whistle on out-of-bounders.

Cassini Launch

There is treasure to be found, in another-mans trash. Watch what you toss out to the slop. However you can only succeed by fearlessly, slimming and trimming down on waste and excess. There is a dichotomy in the pigs ways and means.

It’s pig world…

On October 12, 2012 the planet Saturn (grandfather time) moved over to the sign of the Boar. This transit pattern (Saturn in the Boar) will last 2.5 year until December 23, 2014.

Saturn In Eclipse 2012

Saturn In Eclipse 2012

Usually there is a rush to “judge” and predetermine what Saturn’s transit will be like. Given this years outlying atmospheric pressures, from all the other planetary, cyclic, celestial aspects the information seemed shrouded-in-doubt and veiled in mystique.

It was a temporary stalemate.

I took a wait-to-see approach to know how the eclipse affected Saturn’s rings, with Mercury present on the scene as the Sun and Moon passed through elliptic phases. This gave us a special filter (rainbow effects) and lens to see through. What once seemed dead, lost, done or gone may return, to rise up …in a twisting, twinning tale.

Saturn’s positional (wheel) shift (into pig sign) occurred during our short and intense ecliptic cycles of 2012. It conjoined with interlopers; a total solar eclipse and a mercury transit. This obscured vision and the view was temporarily, like a dark, bottomless pit. But all new comes from that “void” when you know how to draw from the well.

Never underestimate a pig, the pig has friends in high places and is as infinitely resourceful, as the salt-of-the-earth. The pig’s tenaciousness and sinuous, sweet exterior is much beloved. Pig’s are often revered by influential Dragons and Horses in the high or low courts to curry favor.

Now though we have this grand, New Moon cycle in the Rat to shine some new light we can see what’s, what and who’s, who. Though it begins in-the-dark our nearby Winter Solstice will soon shed light (like the crack of dawn) on 12/21-12 to illuminate these concepts very distinctively.

Saturn's Magnetosphere

Saturn’s Magnetosphere

This new moon will quickly open up a frame of reference for us to gain in opportunities otherwise unseen. This is a fitting manner to properly “reveal” (think dance of 7 veils) this part of our human collective story. Inch-by-inch and bit-by-bit is the preferred methodology of the pig.

In this ultra-conservative pig arena is the style of “taking” liberty by any means necessary to protect and preserve. It brings depth and contrast to the “how” of the why and wherefore with a liberal bent.

Saturn rings in the Pig sign (aka Boar, Scorpio, eagle) are making this world of ours pig-centric for the most part. Certain ideas and themes will come back in vogue (nostalgia preferred over vintage) and unexpectedly, things can fly-off, on-a-tangent in typical pig~style.

Saturn Nebula

This alignment forms an abstract component at the pinnacle of the zodiac wheel as it turns and revolves into a new cycle. Reversals of fortune and anything requiring a plot twist, or cork screw can be found here. Things to toy with (hobbies) will add impact to life’s adventure. Getting in and out of trouble is part of piggy’s m.o.

Hence the many stories of pig tales (tails) in Chinese and Asian folklore. Given a pigs banking associations this timeline portends the advent of a run or decline on ones fortunes. Extreme is the theme!

Saturn’s rule over the pig zone (10/5-12 to 12/23-14) is going to be an epoch marked by the brash, the bold, the obscene, the obscure, the esoteric, the flare for dramatic, the exaggerated, the understated, the reserved and the courageous in places and climes that are outlandish, remote, hospitable and enduring. The pig is a luxury liner of an unyielding, penetrating force that cannot be tamed or heeled.

Star Forming Region

Star Forming Region

This kind of persistence rewards the brave and the few with a purse of lasting, success and untold luxuries. By rule and practice Saturn (grandfather time, aka wizard of oz or man behind the curtain) is cold and indifferent (in it’s need) to grind the wheel of time forward. If sentiment got in the way we would all be lost. So impartiality is key.

But here Saturn’s rings get warm and fuzzy and the “grandfather” (aka Santa Claus, St. Patrick, St Valentine, St Christopher, -etc, All Saints) see a revival. They are icons of  generous giving. This is a time of “gives-ways” and the handing over of legacies.

Saturn in the pig sign (can unexpectedly) award, decree, and bequeath things like inheritances, legacies, and gifts, for love, loyalty and the next generation. Often to reward confidantes, pass along to their genetic history or for reasons of obscurity.

Surrealism meets naturalism for a “change” in the command of Arts, sciences and letters during this cycle.

Cassini Back-lit Saturn

Just for fun and for comparison… to Saturn’s Pig transit, here is a look at what you can expect during Saturn’s transit in the other signs from the past, to the not-yet present:

Rats find and distribute, Oxen ride around and regulate, Tigers speculate and propagate, the Hare defies gravity and expands reality, the dragon sends everything spinning and reeling to keep the wheel turning.

Snake hides and seeks to illuminate the setting, the horse runs away with the spoon to jump over the moon, Goats try to nap it off in the shade after they mow down the competition, while the monkey fiddles with the dials and frames the bigger picture.

Birds count every bean to add and subtract in columns, real or imagined and dogs dig-up, or bury bones of the skeletons we all keep in our closets. But pigs test the scales that weigh and measure and lead us to our greatest pleasure. They set the standardized, authorized version of certifications and inspections in stone.

Here on the pigs path we find where-the-rubber-meets-the-road. Mighty is the reign of Saturn in the pig! This rat new moon is super potent and has amazing potential. Plant your seeds of future success now, even if it’s cold and dark outside your good fortune will be growing on the inside.
