Chiron-Equinox-Survival Full Moon I

The 20 March (7pm PST) Full Moon is Impressive from several points of view…

  • The Sun is Merged with (Conjoins) a symbol for Despair and Miracles (dwarf planet Chiron); as we’ve averred many times, we Recommend Poor-Sweethearting any Disappointment that arises.

See https://astrobuss.wordpress.com/category/poor-sweetheart/ if you’re new here.

  • The Full Moon occurs just four hours after the Spring Equinox, which is traditionally considered to be an important milestone, when the World Begins Anew.  That interpretation of course has its roots in the Northern Hemisphere, as Spring begins in Libra in the Other Half.

If we extend this a bit, we could say that the World (or at least the Plants) Beginning Anew is a matter of Solitary Creativity (Aries) in the North, and a matter of Relating to Other (Libra) in the South.  In the South, Solitary Creativity is Required to Survive Autumn and Winter, whereas in the North, it’s Relationships.  Not being much of a World Traveler, I can’t say whether this is Relevant to the Actual World, but I’d be interested in your Perspective.

  • The major Configuration in the Full Moon chart is the Reiteration of a Warning that our Survival, while likely, is not Assured (Ixion-Pholus-Quaoar Diamond Star) unless we start Paying Closer Attention to it.

So let’s start with the latter, the Diamond Star or Self-Resolving Challenge.  If the Challenge is Self-Resolving, why is our Survival not Assured?  Because about five years ago, two dwarf planets started Dancing cheek-to-cheek.  Dwarf planet Quaoar (Kwou’-are) symbolizes our Survival Instincts.  The God Quaoar taught the pre-Spanish Natives of what was to become California how to Manage their Not-Quite-Wild Landscape to Assure their Survival.  Since then, Know-It-All Colonialists in California have ignored Quaoar’s Advice to their peril.

Quaoar’s Dance partner Pholus symbolizes Full Response.  Pholus’s namesake in Greek Myth failed to take all of the Precautions he Could Have Taken, and the results Changed the World.  We can’t say Should Have Taken, because there was no recent Precedent to forewarn him.  It’s only in Hindsight that we can clearly see how he could have easily Prevented the Catastrophe.

Responsibility does not mean Blame.  Responsibility means Being Able to Respond.  If there is no recent Precedent, then, shy of Intuition or “Luck,” how are we to know What to be Prepared to Respond to?  Once an untoward event has occurred, though, or Chicken Little has Warned us, we may be able to Figure Out how to Prevent it from recurring.  So we Interpret Pholus as Being Fully Responsive.  We might have to brainstorm to think of everything that could go wrong, but if we are to be Fully Responsive, that may be Required.

So the two dwarf planets that have been Intimate for the last five or so years, were Quaoar and Pholus – Becoming Fully Responsive to our Survival Instincts.  As Greta Thunberg said at Davos, “Some people, some companies, some decision-makers in particular, have known exactly what priceless values they have been sacrificing to continue making unimaginable amounts of money.  And I think many of you here today belong to that group of people.”

This requires a division between the “Us Versus them” Darwinian folks, who will Respond to their Survival Instincts by Hoarding, and the “We’re All In This Together” Rest of Us, who will Respond by Sharing.  The Problem for us is that these two dwarf planets continue to be Intimate until the mid-2060s.  We may be replaced by Robots long before then, so the few of us who are left may end up Struggling with the Robots for Control more than we Struggle with 1000-Year Floods.  “Open the pod bay doors, HAL,” as Kubrick foretold half a century ago.

The Full Moon is the base of the T-Square (Challenge) that’s embedded in the Diamond Square, which means that Chiron Squaring Pholus is a big part of the Challenge, which is quite Curious, as it was Pholus’s failure to foresee all possibilities that led to Chiron’s famous Wound, which made him supposedly Unhealable.  So this is very Ancient Karma that we’re dealing with.

    I’d say you’re pretty bang on about the hemispheres survival concept….a close friend lives at the tip of South America and most definitely solitary creativity is what drives things. Here in the North, it’s definitely the relationships- it’s too hard to do anything by yourself, in fact. A really interesting and helpful look at this whole idea which honestly never made much “sense” to me before. Thank you! (as always).

    hmmmm. tip of south America seems very appealing. Relationships and its house of mirrors however is what we are up against. and so the “poor sweetheart” is the top tool in the kit!
