As we begin this new year, planet Venus is retrograde in a very up-tight, square. A square that alters face values …like the clock. The sands of time are shifting.

Prelude to a theme…

Magic_Square_Equation

Today we set sail from an old world to a new vision. The transition or journey is already a current of energy running through us, pulling us like a tow rope.

Beginning in the Solar year on February 4, 2103 the Annual Flying Stars (magic square) are said to fly home.

This means the luck stars (number patterns) will align with the original grid that rotates every 10 years in a short cycle. The luck stars will be aligned with the universal directions in the origins of the Taoist zodiac animals.

This alignment dates back over 4000 years in Earth’s history and resets the clock. When the luck stars fly home they increase their luck potency.

Quote: “The Shēngxiào (Chinese: 生肖), better known in English as the Chinese Zodiac, is a scheme, a systematic plan of future action, that relates each year to animal and its reputed attributes, according to a 12-year mathematical cycle.” unquote.

Daoist Symbols Qing Yang Gong Chengdu

Each of the 12 zodiac signs (animals not constellations) will have their primary number align in it’s home palace.

The “home palace” position (location of the compass) resonates with it’s own essential element (5 elements) and makes the luck stars more fortunate and long lasting. They add, rather than subtract, since they replicate. Life will click into “place” and the pieces will fit together, better than ever.

Quote: “Precession results in Western astrology’s zodiacal divisions not corresponding in the current era to the constellations that carry similar names,[3] while Jyotiṣa measurements still correspond with the background constellations.[4]”” unquote.

In the zodiac signs of the Tao (12 animals, symbols) signs (symbols) do not get lost or migrate away (as the standardized, star constellations do from our planets view) it is a stationary system. It names the slots, not the spots.

The zodiac animals signs of the Tao don’t move, time moves around them. So in this way they are a reliable system to attune with, in-the-now, so long as they are properly progressed.

Jupiter, known as the “Grand Duke” in the Chinese pantheon predates China becoming unified as a country by thousands of years and is currently (actually -as a physical planet) in the sign of the Horse.

It will move to the Goat sign next year in 2013. The system is now two whole signs ahead (on the elliptic and on the compass) of where it is being celebrated as coming into the snake. In reality of the now, that is already past.

It is already gone from that sign a few years back. So those of you who like to be progressive, connected and authentic in your practices of earth nature and her cycles can stay ahead of the game by getting properly aligned.

You need to know where you are, to find where you are going.

The animal symbols are not transitory like the Western Greek based astrology system. A system that is tied to migrating constellations -or the Hindu sidereal system (unhinged from our planets elliptic.)

Zodiac Signs Wheel

Zodiac Signs Wheel

These animal signs are symbols (with character references) that align to correspond with our (transitory) pole star and our compass points.

They are said to “stand guard” for that reason and watch or “gua-yin” “watch-over” space in time. This story creates myth and manifests reality in the tapestry that is life.

And when properly realigned (adjusted for drift and procession) to move ahead with the equinox procession (Earth’s clock) the patterns that we have in “actuality” (or actualization of realization, in the now) bring us full circle.

Full circle into the “here and now” to engage us in our world, in a new and progressively, meaningful and dynamic ways. We will have new super powers.

Next-up: I’ll be posting your Lucky Stars & Signs for the new moon cycle, in the Rat sign, on 12/13. This is a potent and powerful moon cycle for emerging with anything, new-new and for revivals and being reborn.

& Saturn’s rings are now making this new-world very pig-centric for the next 2.5 years so we can chat about that, too! Along with that are the details on the Holy Navel alignment of our galaxy with the center of the universe on the Winter Solstice, 12/21, 2012.

Space Frontiers:

Space Junk 3D

How far in space did we go? Take a look at our tell-tale, trail and you’ll know. We seem especially good at atmospheric pollutants. What burns, quicker, faster, longer and without residue than oil? I’m maybe a lone wolf but I believe it will be in the realm of magnetism, metals &/or the bio-power of creatures.

Bio-power is creature energy, like with cats. I’ve seen cats (and other creatures do marvelous feats of fancy) attack each other and while in mid-air they barely touch one another. Whiskers aligned.. and in that moment Shazzam! Each cat instantly flies off in completely opposite directions from one another. So what powerful supply of energy allows creatures to defy gravity in such a way? Or a lizard, lazily hangs around in mid air above us.

These are each magnetic moments in a magnetic field. Maybe that is why it looks, feels and sounds like magic! What can draw things together can also repel them and this component overrides combustion as a system of bio-dynamics since it is already in operation around us all the time.

This is the answer and the question.

All the time we see abnormalities to the life-gravity quotient and we accept them. And yet we do not hang from the ceiling so easily. But with our own ingenuity and some borrowed antics and understanding of animals and our creature friends maybe we can defy some of the laws of gravity? Yes, we can.

An ancient formula for being the Captain of Your Soul and the Master of Your Destiny is to understand this underlying, fundamental formula of your existence:

1). conceive, (2). believe, (3). receive.

Shortcut: What you are believing, is always what you are receiving.

This is always happening on every level whether you know it (conscious of it) or not, in order to demonstrate reality.

Blue Moon

Blue Moon Art

Wild Hare ~ lucky me, lucky you!

This post follows the dashing and daring Full Blue Moon in the sign of the Hare (grace) on August 31th and carries forward to the New Moon on September 15th in the Bird (virtue) sign.

Once in a blue moon sounds so romantic but perhaps only if you like unrequited love stories.

The general theme is that in only this one instance will two or more energies merge and flow like ships passing in the night.

Our blue moon is the lighthouse in the story. Its luminosity is doubled (blue) because it has happened twice this month. This allows enough light for things to see each other and know one another but perhaps only superficially and for a short time. It’s not bright like daytime, this is moonshine “shedding” it’s fullest light.

This can be a great time to transfer data, re-live experiences for new outcomes, to find clues and look for missing parts. Put the pieces of your life and dreams back together. There will be a way to see forward in the dark, the dark being the unknown.

The illumination of this moon brings things, people, objects, places and even nebulous concepts into view. Keep the tissues handy. Being in the sign of the Hare it mixes things up with a high, moral side. Let this blue moon be a harbinger of truth and beauty as a solution to life’s confusion.

Full (yang) moons bring moods, feelings and energetic patterns to a peak or fullness leaving behind high-water marks in our lives whether we see them now or not.

The ball drops and the change-maker brings new shape-shifted realities into play and into being. Things may appear one way but they will actually go another. To predict the unlikely directions of new vitality and get ahead of the game (for success) you’ll need a magic kaleidoscope to express variability.

To follow the leader (dogma) you may walk confident but you’ll likely stroll off the cliff-hanger. What does that mean to moi?

It means to see beyond what is and use your own personal power to project ahead of where you are. This will help you find a groove that leads you in the correct direction.

Going in the correct direction leads to the location of your greatest good, it brings us collectively or individually to a solution or realization. If you stay locked in to your own or other peoples (worn-out) ideas about where to go and/or how to get there you may be on a conveyer belt that leads you in circles going nowhere.

We won’t have this premium level of magnetism running such strong currents all the time. Please use this primal force to extend your connections and grow an olive branch. Use it like overdrive to power up that hill, make that move and blaze that trail. Muster your courage and assert yourself, boldly. This is not blind faith, so keep your eyes wide open.

Like all Hares the hospitality makers will be available along the way to give you a leg up or a furry, foot hold. Though it may not seem like you are supported when you step off into the the wild, blue yonder (the unknown) merging variables and colorful possibilities will unfold a bridge. These concurrences will greet you like a banner waving in the breeze to show you the way.

In a conscious way this moon can enhance our awareness of subtleties. Why subtleties? They are those invisible fibers that lead us to our destiny and for many humans that walk this Earth that is what we are really seeking.

How to harvest subtleties? Well the way I explain it is this, if you want an oak tree you’d better be looking for acorns since oak trees don’t fall fully-grown from the sky. Subtle energy is the nuance akin to a planted seed, poised and ready to break free from it’s dark hole.

This kind of seed is also a clue to finding a next step. The next step brings resonance.

Resonance is when you connect with your universe to cooperate in a larger plan called the divine plan, or life calling. A life calling is an awareness or knowing what moves and motivates us onward. As an anchor it holds us fast to our goals/moorings when we would otherwise give-up and drift away from our challenges.

Why does a plant grow, why do we long to love, why do we hope or hold on? I conjecture that this is a purely a feministic (not feminism) principle steeped in a larger mystery. A mystery that suggests striving (passion) rather than straining (drudgery) to get what you desire. This subtle change will leave you with a lasting impression instead of a stain.

A life calling is simply that. Life calls out to each of us and we either tune in on that vibration or try and stop the noise. We either give-in and follow it’s leaning by allowing “it” to show us and take us completely to what it has to offer us or, as we so often do, we stuff and stifle this noise, we muzzle it. We stop the resonance so we can listen to other voices and other modes of conditioning to find our way in the world.

In extreme cases this becomes a noise sensitivity. Sound is a big concern in the industrial world. My interpretation is that people who have this sensitivity are intent on stopping their own internal type of resonance. They want to conform to and control their world from the outside in and when they can’t the noise starts banging in their heads. They look outside, instead of in.

A good way to know if this is true about yourself is to ask this question, are you trying to take from the world what you want… or are you giving to the world what you’ve got? When you fully shift the paradigm it turns an internal conflict into eternal bliss.

This full, blue Hare moon ignites a transition phase in the seasons of our earthen souls.

A natural change is taking place and yet there is discomfort in leaving the old cocoon, in breaking free of the old skin of the former self. We may feel broken or blown away. But a plant does not grow until it brakes through the bark or soil. The leaves must drop. Without chaos we have no world. In pain there is gain if we look for it and reach for it in the dark like a light switch.

Ancient wisdom and truth (and quantum mechanics, i.e the Pauli Theory) tells us that no two things can occupy the same space in time, it’s a universal law. Such as a shaft falls from the grain leaving the kernel naked and vulnerable we need to know that to be what we want to be, we can’t stay who we are.

When I complete a series of feng shui changes for people (or things) there is always something that breaks or falls apart. This makes way for a new cycle of things to begin. Yes people try to stop it (fear based response) and in so doing lock (closing) in the pain instead of searching (openly) for the gain.

Another reflective and potent mystical saying is, Somethings got to give… In our modern myth and moral story telling this has a classical basis in the iconic and ironic story of Marylin Monroe, figuratively, literally and metaphorically.

“The star system has gotten way out of hand. We’ve let the inmates run the asylum, and they’ve practically destroyed it” was a statement issued by Peter Levathes in 1962 and in reference to artists like Marilyn just before she died. This thinking of ownership couldn’t have been farther from truth or beauty. It seems this story is immortalized from only one side.

In simple terms the movie moguls of the day only tried to get what they wanted by using pressure and subterfuge. In contrast had they allowed themselves to see what they already had and then work with it they would have transcended into new realms.

The mysticism of this compelling story (on and off the set) illustrates the bittersweet and tantalizing opportunities lost by this grind-up, wind-up world. When we push with angst to make something happen or to get what we want, we often never get-it or have-it and in so doing, destroy the very nature of it’s being.

In ancient lore this method is often called “killing the goose.” In the carnage of this mindset we often find some wonder of beauty that was lost, forgotten or misused.

You, me, we – can’t force mother nature.

But once in a blue moon you can coax her out of her shell, when she feels safe, when the water is warm and all the pending agendas are put away. We can skinny dip in the moonlight and be reborn.

Until the next post just let nature (or your nature) run wild and see where she goes, it might genuinely surprise you!

Stars & Signs: posting lucky stars for the Full (yang) Moon (moods) in the Hare (grace) sign up to the new harvest moon in the Bird (virtue) on September 15th. Good luck!

Rat – aka: Sagittarius, mouse, mongoose / planetary influences / flying stars: (1) (4) (2) (4-3):

Intermission time. Lean back and lay low, keep your foot off the accelerator petal. Your pending luck stars are tangled in some thorny sticker bushes. You are going from full warp speed to a big show down. Allow things to cool off and take a break before diving in the pool. As temperatures drop air tight seals form around your desires. While this happens spend time listening and then objectifying new opportunities. When you come up from deep water (consciousness) and/or out of a dark space (unconsciousness) there is always an interlude to re-adaption. Stay in the compression chamber a few months to get your bearings before integrating your new ideals into to everyday life.

Ox – aka: Capricorn, bull, cow / planetary influence – Pluto (fate) / flying stars: (8) (2) (9) (2-1):

Up early and down late, scheduling has kept you buzzing and humming through this summer of love. Now, finally you will see more channels deliver steady streams of new data to your field of dreams. Or at least one. The trick here is repetition. Once you figure out the how just keep repeating it. Constancy is your lucky charmer. The stars roll in your favor with a wink, wink and a nudge-nudge. You have to blow on the candles to make a wish come true and rub that lamp to get a genii to appear. When summoning a genii be sure to have your request formulated and wait time is nil.

Tiger – aka: Aquarius / planetary influences / flying stars: (8) (2) (9) (2-1):

Finding and keeping is the Tiger’s only really soft, tender sentimental side. Once they find what they want they like to have it, and to keep it near. There is a honeymooners tinge to your lucky money stars this month. Use the core concepts of sharing is caring and loving is giving. Show the ones you hold dear, that you like them here. Brandish nothing stronger than a pillow fight or you’ll frighten the children into tears. Sure you can stay tough like a bed of nails. But then no one can lie down and roll around with you in the green, grass of home. Hold your own and let the good times jelly-roll.

Hare – aka: Pisces, rabbit, cat, fish / planetary influence – Neptune (harmony) retrograde 6/4 to 11/10, Blue, Full Yang Moon (moods) / flying stars: (3) (6) (4) (6-5):

Blue moon… in the Hare. Lucky in love and wealth stars are all a sizzle with one small caveat. Use them up now, don’t wait. Expiration dates on the luck quotient lose potency quickly. You are currently aligned for maximum frequency of heaven luck and income streams a-plenty. Fortunately for you, you are also naturally gifted at foraging and gathering fruits and nuts at their peak season. Make haste on this work since the tide will pull out this month leaving your ships high and dry. Things may look bleak and bleary. But this is only a short lived condition. By the time you have cleaned off your rosy glasses everything will be crystal clear. Sometimes the water just needs time to settle. Go slow, don’t push the luck stars this month and let things flow.

Dragon – aka: Aries / planetary influence – Uranus (chaos) retrograde 7/13 to 12/13 / flying stars: (4) (7) (5) (7-6):

Stretch out your wings and and rip free from the chains that bind you. You are being tested in new flights of fancy and all you need to do is show up. Life as the dragon knows it, all-to-well, is a messy, scary business. Ye be monsters beyond here is oft the place marker for madness and ends-of-the-world inhabited by the dragon kind. You scratch your head and beyond wonder, why, and how on Earth do people come up with this stuff? But then before you even have time to really ponder, suddenly it dawns on you. All this unmarked and uncharted territory is yours to play in, it belongs to you, it’s your birthright and yours for the taking.

Snake – aka: Taurus, serpent, bull / flying stars: (4) (7) (5) (7-6):

Life is going to get sweeter and a newly, exalted position (or tack) you’ve taken is making a bad situation better. Luck stars look thrilling and willing, beyond belief to go the distance. Though to see you now it would not seem so, but strangely enough in the coming weeks a serious legal matter will go favorably for you. Put grist to the mill and apply another turn to the screw. Of course your own special brand of squeezing is legendary but if that fails your venom will paralyze them. The days to your crowning glory are numbered by few. Paupers awaken as a prince or princess in the morrow.

Horse – aka: Gemini, twins / planetary influence – Jupiter (increase) / flying stars: (9) (3) (1) (3-2):

Feeling your oats is fine and dandy. However this is your best time of the year to beat a retreat. To be fully revived requires an extended, clandestine period. Stars are a funky lot in a mixed bag of what, knots. Things get tangled in brambles when we bite off more than we can chew. Choose your words and then swallow them whole, what’s left unsaid no one will know. If this hand of cards were mine I’d toss them and push back the table. Stockpile your cupboards with fruity delights but don’t burn candles or leave on the light. Hold your horses just a little longer, don’t jump the gun. Rewards will come when your legs are stronger.

Goat – aka: Cancer, sheep, deer / planetary influences / flying stars: (2) (5) (3) (5-4):

Bonus social luck brings back a gentler stride and a promotes wanderlust to take you back to a happier time. The peacekeeper and match-maker goat is the new uniform type. You are infinitely bound to the stories of the land so it’s time to stop kidding around! One by one, three billy goat’s gruff usurped a troll that wanted to devour their life.  Like water under the bridge they moved past it to let bygones be gone for good. Climb higher and you’ll find a new, brighter view on your horizon. This month will sparkle and shine be sure to shop and dine. Up next month is a long rest and respite from the intensity of this limelight.

Monkey – aka: Leo, lion / planetary influences: Venus (love & luxe) 9/6 to 10/2 / flying stars: (2) (5) (3) (5-4):

Love comes to town and it’s riding a horse upside down. Honey you have some pretty happy, snappy luck coming down your pike. But from the way you see it – it looks miserable, like something the cat dragged in. Out of your “former” fears and tears there is a truth in beauty that you have side-lined, avoided or isolated. Don’t let your fame be a passing fancy. Au contraire …you would be wise to economize. Save your affections for a love (or script) that’s really rare. On stage you are hopping and popping with flirtatious hilarity so let the good time roll, don’t wedge them in.

Bird – aka: Virgo, phoenix, rooster / planetary influences: New Moon (yin moods) 9/15, Mercury (messenger) 8/31 to 9/16 / flying stars: (7) (1) (8) (1-9):

Oppositions flare-up and thunder roars in the skies of the feathered kind. You are rarefied by these ripe conditions. This is the perfect time to cast out lines and make the ties that bind. Get into a new stride by marching to the drum of a higher mind. The bean counters will merge with the nitpickers to sort out all the details over time. The luck stars are a flyby the seat of your pants airline taking you to a conference in a wilder-nest clime. Hunt and peck to solve the crime. Income luck stays strong and goes long. If not, I suggest abruptly making an about face (all the way around to the other side) and go forward in that direction.

Dog – aka: Libra, lion, scales / planetary influence – Saturn (time) / flying stars: (6) (9) (7) (9-8):

Super, double bonus luck has doggies barking and baying at the moon. But all this howling is a waste of a very, good vibe. Dog is the Hare’s secret buddy so don’t be afraid to reveal your innermost dreams to a sacred sole. Confide not deride. In so doing you may garner the prize of a new lifetime. Don’t bat an eyelash about crossing your tee’s. The white cross is a legendary symbol of power used to remove all iniquity. Be thou dissolved in preparation for the whole lot-a heaven luck coming your way. Like summer berries you get to pick your own prize.

Pig – aka: Scorpio, boar, eagle / planetary influence – Mars (pure energy) enters 8/23 to 10-6 / flying stars: (6) (9) (7) (9-8):

The lucky pig has a dynamic-duo of star powers wielding fire and brimstone with an exaggerated effect. Below the pyrotechnics is a deep reservoir of constancy and continuity being dredged-up, out of this marshy swamp. Your olfactory senses will lead you to the  destination of your dreams so keep sniffing around the forest. Trust your sensory perceptions above what you see in front of you. Set your whole heart on fire and watch it burn. When you do, it will melt away the dross. The big wheel is turning and you get a shot at the jackpot. Aim high and be mighty at the arc.
