Mjölnir

QuillessBending asks…

“As for the Mjölnir, what is the degree and harmonic of that aspect so we can look for it again?”

Most astrologers call this Configuration a “Thor’s Hammer,” but that term has too much baggage as a force of Destruction.  Mjölnir is just the Norwegian term for the same.  I don’t know whether it carries the same baggage in Norway, but it should be more neutral in English.  As many of you know, almost all Western Languages are descended from Sanskrit, and the Vedic equivalent of the Mjölnir is the Vajra, as the Vedic equivalent of Thor, more or less, is Indra.

Thor’s and Indra’s weapon symbolizes an Indestructible Irresistible Force.  They’re both Thunder Gods, and a constructive (and historically appropriate) interpretation of an Indestructible Irresistible Force is Lightning.  Imagine Feeling your way forward in total darkness, and suddenly having the Landscape illuminated by a bolt of Lightning. 

As Kesey said, “Sometimes you can Trip Out so far that you never get back to know that you left,” and that’s the nature of Epiphany, an Insight you can never unsee, an Indestructible Irresistible Change to your Perspective and as a result, to your Identity.  That’s how we interpret the Mjölnir Configuration.

A Mjölnir occurs when a third planet sits at the Far Midpoint of a Square, when a third planet Trioctiles each end of a Square.  The Square as a Challenge to become Adept, and the Mjölnir as Instant Achievement of that Goal.  So the (purple) Mjölnir in the Eclipse chart…

Points to Venus from the Mars-Uranus Square; if we’re Frustrated by our Resistance (Mars) to the Urging of our Soul (Uranus), we can PIAVA something like “I Wonder how my Values might be keeping me Stuck.”  How do we know when we’re In Resistance (Mars) to the Urging of our Soul (Uranus)?  Easy – when we aren’t in Bliss.

The Trioctile Angle (formerly known by the clumsy term “Sesquisquare”), three eighths of the way ’round the Zodiacal Loop, combines the Third and Eighth Harmonics.  The Eighth Harmonic is about Rebalancing, the Third about Love with Wisdom.  So the Trioctile symbolizes Constructive Insights, and the Mjölnir combines two Trioctiles in service of Resolving the Frustration of a Square.

Like the Yod or Finger of God and the Quintile Yod, the Mjölnir gives us Exact Direction about where to Look to find the Information that will Resolve whatever Doubt or Confusion we may be Feeling.  In this case we have Mars in Aquarius making a Waning Square to Uranus in Taurus, Mjölnired by Venus in Virgo. 

Uranus in Taurus says, “Ready or Not, Soul is Descending into Matter.”  Mars in Aquarius says “But what about all the People who don’t seem to be Ready?”  Mjölnired Venus in Virgo Responds, “Um, where are your Priorities?  You care more about Other People’s Social Comfort than about your own Soul?  Do you suppose it might be Time for some Attitude Adjustment?  What about all of their Abandoned Souls?”

    Thank you so much! Epiphany indeed. AND easy to suss out from a quick chart glance without numbers. You have a notable way of transmitting super complex information so thoroughly and efficiently, and graciously, with such dedication. It is true- after a post-eclipse nap I feel like I am stepping into another world. Bless you!
