New Dog Moon October 13, 2012

Finding my way back after being tossed into a sea of change! This is a few days late, but always glad to be alive… I was struck by what is known as the 30 day point. We have an up coming Total Solar Eclipse in the sign of the Boar. It’s sexy, dangerous, volatile, and slipperier than a greased pig.

Why? Because it’s in the sign of the Boar (aka: pig/Scorpio) and it touches Saturn during it full, phase of motion. Unlike any other eclipse we have known in our life’s history this one will merge with the concentric rings of father time, Saturn.

Yes, the time has finally come …as they say.

But for now my starry eyed, family of friends we are in the troughs of an Old Dog, New Moon. This opens, big, double doors for doggies secret chum, the Hare.

In this time slot our Tiger team will be favored with a bright, spotlight and Horses will be on a nostalgia quest, to pony-up. And then there’s the dog and his co-host, the pig, which is a whole, other story.

The Dog and Pig own the Northwest sector on the compass. This is the cliff side and slippery slope in form, feng shui. The dog answers a call to duty and sets the rules & regs regarding such things as transportation, commerce, courts, laws, and partnerships. Piggy goes to market in the luck zone for winnings, prizes, loot, booty calls and liaisons. The Northwest area is home to the Flying Star Palace (6) for Heaven Luck and is reserved for mentors, benefits, secrets, skullduggery and treasures untold. It sets the Gold standard and is of the metal element.

These current elliptic 30 day points will touch generations only in the sense of it being about the birth of something new (the messiah channel) and the death of something old. A bell will toll.

If you are in a “lucky group” or individually pinned, you will receive some notice, make an appearance or get entangled in a web of sorts. This occurs in the alignment of things so as to affect a person or groups long-term situation in a really, dramatic and life-altering, landscape, way. Fate plays it’s hand at the wheel, ya don’t say. What may seem rather bad on the surface (who are we kidding… if something really sucks!) it may actually have a world of good inside. Your chore is to locate the gold nugget or nutrient grain and extract it, whole.

The next moon phase is the Serpentine full moon on Hallows Eve. It is a humdinger and a masquerade. Beware of alluring entanglements, ahh unless you are a Boar (aka pig) or Tiger or other “warrior type” like the Dragon and his trusty Rat-a-tat. You folks can wear a mask to protect the true-self while you wage wars against the oppressions of our great and wonderful world.

The coming Pig (aka: boar, Scorpio – nobility) eclipse next month is a life and death rattle, a reinvention, a reincarnate, a silly-bloody hell!! It’s the magnificent rags-to-riches story. Long, lost souls can be found and reborn. A prince can become a pauper and a pauper becomes a prince. You can kiss a frog, or a toad for more magical life transformations but choose them wisely or you risk god knows what-all?  Pigs don’t set-up chemical reactions like the rat sign instead they have them, they are an explosive force of nature.

Our ecliptic connection will make something invisible, visible and something visible will disappear. Yeah, it’s some tricky, sh-t, no kidding. Each eclipse has a natural pair and this one happens to be a Penumbral Lunar Eclipse (Earth moves between sun and moon) in the sign of the Horse on 11/28. Now we are a bit far afield in the timeline but it’s because this new (yin) moon has long ranging implications and ramifiations.

Our last yearly, eclipse at the end of November brings darkness to daylight and a shadow formation with politics written all over it. Shadows will be cast in the ballots of the western world. Don’t believe everything you see or hear. Looks can be quite deceiving.

This up and coming pig eclipse (11/13) is a part of a series that only happens every 177 years and will speak directly to a chosen few. If it speaks to you, you may already have been called upon, or soon will. This is your time to climb the scared mountain and speak directly to power. Do not back down or shy away but be careful not to tan your hide or pickle your pig’s feet along the way. An abundance of caution is advised.

So what the heck is a 30 day point then?

It has three contextual parts. The 30 day point happens exactly 30 days before and 30 days after an ecliptic node is touched or activated in time, through space. And it is activated again, exactly one year after the date of the eclipse.

How does that affect moi?

If your natal or solar return chart (progressed, adapted, converted, and reinterpreted) is connected to any or all of these (3) nodes (one or all) it will push you, pull you, bend you and/or stretch you into shapes you have not felt before or did not imagine getting into.

The node strikes a resonant cord with our internal (natal chart) or external (solar chart) destiny. It creates a preposition 30 days prior to an eclipse and it hits a disposition 30 days after an eclipse.

Eclipses are fateful moments in time (insert slap in face w/cold, wet fish here) that are rarely ambiguous. Doors open in the 1st phase and doors close in the 2nd phase. Then exactly one year afterward it draws lines of distinction (or conclusions) to this new fate line that is now connected to you and/or the outer world.

With Saturn’s concentric circles involved this could be quite a drop in the pond of collective, consciousness. Waves and waves will emanate outward and then return back. Every drop of ocean has the ocean in it, but a drop, does not an ocean make.

How do you know if you are called upon? The alert may be something as subtle as pin prick (or did you hear a pin drop?) or as big as a sonic boom, holy cow!

This ecliptic set of patterns has an enigmatic mystery contained under a hermetic seal that holds the key to our future existence.

Within (3) days on/or around the new dog, moon, 10/15 you may receive a notice, make an unscheduled appearance, go out on a limb (on a whim), slide down a rabbit hole or throw caution into the wind -that you can’t have back again. Bottom line, when you are touched by this eclipse node in any one, or all of it’s points, there is no way you that won’t know.

This New Dog Moon on 10/15 is a push on the reset button. Turn the page and keep the format wide open. You’ll need to accommodate a world of new upheavals never seen before or surmised that are coming like an avalanche falling down the mountain.

Stars & Signs: posting your lucky stars for the New (yin) Moon (moods) in the Dog (duty) sign on October 15th until the Full Moon in the Serpent on October 30th. Dogs bury the bone and pigs bury the hatchet, caution is truly advised. Keep calm and carry on. Good luck until the next post on Hallows eve for the witchy, Serpent, full moon.

Rat – aka: Sagittarius, mouse, mongoose / planetary influences: Mars (energy) 8/23 to 10-6/ flying stars: (1) (4) (2) (2): I’d put off anything you can until you must actually do it. Postpone the whole kit and caboodle and spend time to bake your noodles. The luck stars are dark and damp. They will be flowing clean and clear into steady streams of income early next month. The best thing you can do with these soggy stars is a full system check and a good flush to an old system. Take care of old business before accepting another request on your to do-list. For now just kick back and stay dry by the fireside.

Ox – aka: Capricorn, bull, cow / planetary influence – Pluto (fate) / flying stars: (8) (2) (9) (9): There’s no getting around, getting, around-it. The dueling 9’s can feel like an everyday circuit of grand tragedies and comedies in life. You may look back and say this was the best, this was the worst, time in your mind. But I’d suggest you just see the bright side and get some extra rest. Don’t keep score, keep track. The gravy train is running through your pasture and it’s time to hitch your wagon to a new, daily routine. Grab that golden ring and run with it, you have a ticket to the Big top lucky, stars! Enjoy the ride. Remember life is a mystery to be revealed.

Tiger – aka: Aquarius / planetary influences / flying stars: (8) (2) (9) (9): When you are on a roll you just, go-with-it. You have several plates spinning here all at once. The trick is that they travel (good or bad) in the direction you send them. Slice and dice, good fortune I call it. Luck stars are your own, private wheel of power. Watch the sparks though your fame catches fire like a rocket heading into a new stratosphere. Ready, get set and then go -to town on a grand and lavish scale of new found happiness. The stars are flying strong and sparkle, golden stardust for your all the way through the holiday review. Go, baby, go!

Hare – aka: Pisces, rabbit, cat, fish / planetary influence – Neptune (harmony) retrograde 6/4 – 11/10 / flying stars: (3) (6) (4) (4): Luck stars are asking you to just glow and go with it, to be expansive and boldly know! Super lucky in love stars, sizzling money luck and oodles of charm give you a lucky luster in long strands of pearls. Bubbling and effervescent stars are flying in your best directions ~ Love & money luck bring gifts of treasure and fond pleasures, to be savored, not measured. Enjoy, you deserve it. Golden fishes and savory bliss-es of delight, go quietly into the night.

Dragon – aka: Aries / planetary influence: Uranus (chaos) retrograde 7/13 to 12/13 / flying stars: (4) (7) (5) (5): There is a great mystery in the air of a gale force wind that is changing everything for you almost, overnight, every night. Mounting household tasks feel like you are spinning in a flying house. Luckily the local munchkins are friendly with a generous spirit to lift you from a well worn rut. You are big and powerful with the transformation grid to convert any disaster into a gold mind. But don’t forget your ruby slippers you’ll need them wherever you land. And if it gets to tough to understand your little pig’s tail will get you out of any jar of jam.  Plus your fairy god mother’s always got your back.

Snake – aka: Taurus, serpent, bull / flying stars: (4) (7) (5) (5): Luck stars are the toughest lot you can draw. However they come with a platinum lined, gold, gem encrusted box hidden under the mess. Anything’s possible and you have great confidence that you should not allow to be undermined. These stars are a lucky advantage when you use the power of ten. Milk that cow and then fashion yourself  a new set of wings to fly-by. Headhunters are gunning for you but you can take then down. Shrink warp their minds with your sliver tongue and whip smart, designs. This too shall pass…

Horse – aka: Gemini, twins / planetary influence – Jupiter (increase) / flying stars: (9) (3) (1) (1): Rose are red, and violets are super, blue, blue, blue and the Lucky Stars are lov’n you like a spoonful-a-sugar! These luck stars zoom! Running with your Tigers pals and keeping up with the Dogs and Pony show all night might run you a bit raggedy, though. There’s quite a lot of spit in this fire, so throw another log on and the stoke the coals. Shake and bake some pumpkin magic this hallows eve. Your Love luck screams, baby it’s me!

Goat – aka: Cancer, crab, sheep, deer / flying stars: (2) (5) (3) (3):

Your luck stars are all twisted up in raucous mess of have-not’s, got-not’s and want-not’s. It’s time to put old expectations to bed and trash any unrequited love, lost. With this much double, whammy slandered on the surface of things our goats might get their panties in a bit-of a bunch. Separate the fact from the fiction and keep a fire extinguisher handy in the kitchen. Take it from the birds, if it quacks like a duck, it’s just a duck. Let everything roll off your back and stay warm on the blind side where the goose patrol can’t see you. Do not let yourself stew in any juices, just kick back with a buddy and hava a brew. Wear camouflage, as the new you.

Monkey – aka: Leo, lion / planetary influences / flying stars: (2) (5) (3) (3): Hear no evil, see no evil, speak no evil. These luck stars are tangled and brambled and right down quarrelsome. When I was young I would wake up early before dawn to pick my black berries for my pies. That way they didn’t get overheated in the morning sun and could reach peak perfection inside the shell I formed for them. This may help you conceive ways to move tough situations forward with, say early advances. If something doesn’t quite yield for you, don’t push it, relax. Be good to yourself right now, your tick-tock is a little dink-donk. Try fire eating, it’s a great cure for all that ails these these funky-dunk, stars. Or just borrow the costumes in the clip, if you get my drift ~

Bird – aka: Virgo, phoenix, rooster / planetary influence: Venus (love & luxe) 10/2 to 10/28 / flying stars: (7) (1) (8) (8): There is no better batch of home-baked stars than these that are beaming for you my cock-do-doodle do! The numbers add up, down and all around, whichever way you want them to go. Lady luck is still encamped in your feathery, nest but will soon make her transit to the dog sign on October 28. Light the candles and toss a few rose petals around while you have this extra charm. It’s okay to give off the aura that you can’t be taken for granted but don’t be shy or you’ll miss all the glorious, blue sky opportunity to fly your true colors. Unfurl and unfold! Take flight and be bold.

Dog – aka: Libra, lion, scales / planetary influence – Sun (image) 9/22-10/21, Saturn (time), Mercury (messenger) 9/16 – 10/4, New (yin) Moon / flying stars: (6) (9) (7) (7): It’s a showdown at the okay corral for the luck stars in this zone. You’ll need to use your magnificent bargaining powers to escape the dreaded, doldrums. Find the line that snakes along a path that requires you to break down barriers. It will take you and lead you much farther out, beyond the wild blue yonder. A place where you can get the magic and bring it back to save the world. Yes it’s a steep climb on the cliffs of an abyss. But you are a study in achievement against all odds. Go underdog, go!

Pig – aka: Scorpio, boar, eagle / planetary influence: Sun (image) 10/22 to 11/22  – Mercury (messages) 10/5 – 10/28, Saturn (time) 10/5/12 – 12/23/14 / flying stars: (6) (9) (7) (7): Luck stars are a factor of none, or sometimes referred to as the snowball, factor. But as they say, when you go thru hell make it pay. The pen is mighty just like a sword, so invoice Hades to pay-up. Yes, I want to stand up and shout but not for injustice, for sublime, divine justice! Bee heard, Bee visible, Bee real, Bee~lieve!! The lucks stars are daring you to do!! Bee courageous, bee truthful, Bee ~utiful!! And mostly bee, perssssistent. Keep looking for an edge and stay, ever vigilant. A few asteroids may zing by you, but you’ll survive this to thrive on to a better end.

Til the next post on the Full Moon in the sign of the Serpent! Something wicked this way comes… Happy Hallows Eve!

Something Wicked This Way Comes, by Ray Bradbury

Dragon Cake

Day Moon Under the Sun

Day Moon Under the Sun

Oppositions to our best laid plans… the stars are flying in opposing territories and the signs are at odds with each other. Sun in Dog sign and a very powerful full (yang) Moon in the Dragon sign, will stir the pot. We may see more than a few old bones pop-up to the surface.

Our outer rim planets (large celestial bodies, or planets outside our elliptic plane) are taking up new positions and knocking down the old. This is when the music stops so find a seat and occupy it. Saturn is moving stations (from Dog to Pig) and that will pull the rug out from under many things.

For fun and in keeping with the festive spirit of this cyclic, moon change this is high drama for all the Zodiac signs. The lucky stars are hamming it up, going overboard, excelling as a hot-dog or being the life-of-the-party but they are all in exaggerated, states. This is showy, active, yang energy. Sh-t happens, is the short story.

This season offers us plenty of food for thought to sustain the Earth’s soul energy as it goes dormant until spring in our western hemisphere.

This takes some reflective time and we can see our little white rabbit is hard at it. The moon rabbit, or Jade Hare (grace) will be kept quite busy and is best left to their own devices to sort out the recipes and develop strategies on their advisory board.

For the dogmatic contenders the old guard surrenders… we will see a shut down of obsolete systems. This energy is coming from a karmic place. Get ready to roll the dice and set sail for uncharted lands as we shift positions on the big wheel.

Watch Earth Sky: Harvest Moon 2012

Official Harvest Moon is @ 10:19 Pm PST, have a happy Harvest Moon. It’s a magical, mystery moon.

The ever fabulous Mooncake and/or Mid-Autumn festival is happening this week in the lucky stars. This has great implications for women, matchmaking, floating sky lanterns, lighting incense, dragon dances and moon gazing as Uranus passes by. It is a festive holiday in Eastern cultures worldwide, for sharing tea and cakes (sweet and savory) with the family.

Modern Mooncakes

Modern Mooncakes

Use-to-be that mooncakes were sweet with a salty, egg yolk inside to commemorate the moon. Fortunately now (for more worldly tastes) the modern moon cakes are becoming sophisticated (Ganache anyone?) and palette pleasing in more cake-like concoctions. They even come gold-plated for gifts of status. Always glad to see our lady Luna well appreciated for her beauty and luminosity.

Many fun actives can be undertaken to celebrate this yearly offering (Mooncake Festival) to the moon goddess. Her name is “Chang’e” in Chinese and is (interestingly enough) a synonym with “change” in the English language. To me that’s strange… but also very cool since the moon cycles are always changing.

Stars & Signs: posting lucky stars for the Full (yang) Moon (moods) in the Dragon (vitality) sign up to the new  Dog (duty) moon coming on October 15th.

The up and coming New Dog Moon on 10/15 is a reset button. This is  where a new chapter in the life-adventures for my canine friends will begin. Horses and Tigers will be drawn in (harnessed, looped, included) on the margins to take care of what looks like a mountain of paperwork. Prepare to sign on the dotted lines.

In zen-type thinking, the old adage: “it’s the space between the bars that holds the Tiger” is aptly applied. The tiger expressing our wild (or untamed) natures or a natural state of being.

This can be protective or selective. So it’s not what we see that holds us back, it’s what we don’t see (= unconscious/subconscious thinking of conditioned and/or patterned behavior) and when you figure it out you can then release it.

Good luck until the next post ~

Rat – aka: Sagittarius, mouse, mongoose / planetary influences / flying stars: (1) (4) (2) (3): You will be called upon to create revolutionary devices and bring some old-fashioned, spirited pioneering to a new field of opportunity. But right now the luck stars are sour on the outside and quite fussy, too. I can offer a cautionary note to not feel poorly about it or you’ll reflect back, a wrong attitude. Our perspective frames our outlook and shapes the tone of our conscious awareness. You can shift it every time it gets out-of-whack. Prosperity flows and follows where you send it. Turn that tide and move across the water (consciousness) to find a better point-of-view. Be generous in believing.

Ox – aka: Capricorn, bull, cow / planetary influence – Pluto (fate) / flying stars: (8) (2) (9) (1): The Moo-moo is the fashion statement of the year as Scared cows are being revered and decorated for their lofty ideals. Banners, ribbons and special hardware to commemorate even a bum steer. Doesn’t matter if they are actually working, they look pretty and have loads of social support. Our planet Pluto now moves in direct motion after a long (sleepy) transit backtrack, this summer. This will quite literally transform situations and circumstances right before our eyes. There is monumental work involved so get out your chisel and hammer. Luck stars are GLOWING brightly for you. Wish and blow on them and they’ll gladly surprise you.

Tiger – aka: Aquarius / planetary influences / flying stars: (8) (2) (9) (1): History is in the baking, an old world is becoming a new realm. While extremes are polarizing others, you can see a clear way through. Your lucks stars are at an all time high. You have top tier luck status and love stars blazing. Use them to patch your life tapestry where areas have been worn. There is lots of glitter and sparkle in the costume that goes along with the gigantic, lucky elephant that follows you everywhere. Consider the sky lanterns this season as way to give thanks and send up your brightest ideas to the moon. Then watch lady Luna gift you in return with showers of new good.

Hare – aka: Pisces, rabbit, cat, fish / planetary influence – Neptune (harmony) retrograde 6/4 – 11/10 / flying stars: (3) (6) (4) (5): The fortunes portend great sacrifices will lead to heroic acts of virtue. Get your magic potions and lotions ready. Pound out the formula. The White Rabbit holds a lofty position and will soon be on the a quest of a lifetime. Before that happens you will need to get grounded and reset all positions to their new, default settings. Lucks stars have you cooling off those rocket boots you wear. The luck stars are neutral at their best, and risky at their worst. As they say in divination parlance, don’t take any chances. Take a breather. Stick close to base camp before your next social clime. Take time to acclimate with the rough and ready changes that are up and coming, just around the bend.

Dragon – aka: Aries / planetary influence: Full Moon (moods), Uranus (chaos) retrograde 7/13 to 12/13 / flying stars: (4) (7) (5) (6): Rare artifacts and gems stones are falling from the sky to align with your greatest ideals and fill your coffers. You have legendary Heaven luck giving everything you do, a glama-a-rama, boost. Add to that a prize package arriving with sequential numbers, that all add up and up. Keep yourself open to all possibilities and stay focused on the ball. The celestial ball in your case. You are now in an arena that will be like a festival of fantastic delights. Go easy and be filled with the wonder-of-it all. Mine your peeps and cues from the cave you quarry most and stay away from mass hysteria, especially when and/or if you provoke it. Rescale your amour -to fit the crime, don’t give away the kit-and-caboodle.

Snake – aka: Taurus, serpent, bull / flying stars: (4) (7) (5) (6): You have grand scale Heaven luck with a Triple crown flying and landing in your luck stars. You are an Agent provocateur. Myth and magic are your calling cards. You can wizard your way into anything you desire by being so darn good-at-it. You hold all the majesty, mystery and dark, chocolate secrets one can revere. Truth and beauty shall set your free. Now is your much awaited, amnesty. Don’t waste anytime to romanticize the past it will only repeat itself, on you. Cut back on the non-essentials and prepare for the unexpected. Limber up for it, real good, everyday. Remember the rule, when you go through hell (and you come out on the other side eventually, or die) make it pay. You will be signing a new lease-on-life.

Horse – aka: Gemini, twins / planetary influence – Jupiter (increase) / flying stars: (9) (3) (1) (2): Take a load off and put the cart before the horse. Time to let yourself out to pasture. Roam around for a new patch of greener, grass. Horses have some tough-luck stars staring them down, right now. Trust me it’s going to turn around. The new-new, season is about ready to burst into your end-zone and take you to hyper space. You will reach neither regions unknown. As a world explorer, extraordinaire you relish this in your pickle jar. To garnish these new wagers for the fullest effect do not be deceived by what you see in front of you. This is time to let-go and say heave-ho. In the coming days expect to attend to the passing of older relations as the tide turns. Soon the boats you sent sailing will be returning to a safe and sound, harbor.

Goat – aka: Cancer, sheep, deer / planetary influences / flying stars: (2) (5) (3) (4): Go for the gusto, green lights are flashing and you have super, lucky stars keeping all your ducks lined-up in a nice, neat row. The opportunities are ripe for the picking. Select whatever fruits you like to put in your basket or on your headdress. What goes-around, comes-around. Lucky stars are bringing you a smorgasbord of delights to pick and choose from. Stay focused and you’ll be favored for a long-shot (that you take now) while the time is so-right! Your super-ball will hit the power spot and keep ringing up points …long as you set-up circumstances in regulated, sequences.

Monkey – aka: Leo, lion / planetary influences / flying stars: (2) (5) (3) (4): Make your move and do the deal. Luck stars are rolling in your favor so don’t waste them on some dalliance or delusions. There are solid ways and means to effect the entire lifestyle change you have always dreamed of. The arrangement is tricky though. You must pick and choose from the menagerie you have laid out in front of you. Take the options to put on a showcase of your own, raw talents, not the adaptations of someone else. Step off the trapeze and get your balance. These lucky stars need to be properly aligned to do their job correctly, get the best advice you can and then take it with you to all the way to the bank. Don’t let your dreams escape without you.

Bird – aka: Virgo, phoenix, rooster / planetary influence: Venus (love & luxe) 10/2 to 10/28 / flying stars: (7) (1) (8) (9): Take another lap around the winners circle. Your lucks stars are on a fast track to nether regions of exquisite delight. There are bonus stars and infinity luck that have an insignia of your best, crest stamped on them. The bird is a showy and imperialistic creature by nature so you can be very pleased with yourself. You also have love luck flying in the window and providing the kind of companionship you’ve always longed for and/or cherish most. Birds get all the eggs in their basket so be (very) careful not to drop this unique opportunity. Expand the realm of your greatest estate and make history. Set-it-in-stone, by your gracious self.

Dog – aka: Libra, lion, scales / planetary influence – Sun (image) 9/22-10/23, Saturn (time), Mercury (messenger) 9/16 – 10/4 / flying stars: (6) (9) (7) (8): Que Sera Sera is the theme for your super-dynamic luck stars this season. Go with it and let the world unfold a new chapter for you. The set-backs are only a temporary glitch until the new system comes online. When it does you’ll be going full speed ahead. It’s been dog-gone awful in some ways but once Saturn moves out of your world you will see some pretty amazing luck pick-up the pieces. Lose the slack and re-tool your whole outlook to get a bead on it’s whereabouts.

Pig – aka: Scorpio, boar, eagle / planetary influence – Mercury (messages) 10/5 – 10/28, Mars (pure energy) 8/23 to 10-6, Saturn (time) 10/5/12 – 12/23/14 / flying stars: (6) (9) (7) (8): Jumbo jet-setter, luck stars are flying high and driving you hard. There is an instant game changer, deal breaker and re-arranger just up around the next corner, so don’t brake, ease into it. Mercury’s move into your sign coincides w/Saturn, and as they merge into hyper space you will see a sub-sonic, blast of fresh air open up a world of wonders. This zone is a launch pad set to go into new frontiers and take on new adventures in storytelling and myth making. All systems are functioning and it’s in the countdown phase. The special effects make rainbows out of all those old smoke-and-mirrors, routines. Mars makes love, melt in your hand.
