Cacoxenated Amethyst. The smaller brownish Crystals are Cacoxenite, or Hydrated Iron Aluminum Oxide Phosphate Hydroxide. The Power in this combination derives from the Ascension of the Purple Quartz (7th Chakra) and the Phosphate (the “Bringer of Light”), the Grounding of the Iron, the Clarity of the Aluminium, the Energization of the orange-brown (3rd Chakra) Cacoxenite, and the unbounded Grace of the Waters in the Cacoxenite. Like “Walking the Spiritual Path with practical feet” as Angie Arrien puts it, while having a Magic Wand to make it all effortless.
Declare the Intention that these Crystals will speak to you. Then sit back, make your vision fuzzy, enjoy that for a little while, then let one part of the picture stand out and draw your Attention. Don’t choose one part, let the picture choose the part and present it to you. Focus your Attention on that part without focusing your vision. Then Ask yourself, without allowing words in the answer, How does this Feel?
Which Full Moon occurs at quarter past noon PDT May 14.
Start with Kelley Hunter’s excellent summary at http://heliastar.com/cosmic-news/awe-full-moon/, and don’t miss her section on Algol. Kelley uses a slightly different angle on astrology than we do…
She doesn’t use the asteroids or the dwarf planets as much, and she uses a wider degree of Sensitivity than we do – we try to stick with three degrees. Saturn, for instance, is four and a quarter degrees from the Full Moon, and Algol is three degrees and four minutes from the Sun. I’m obviously splitting hairs there – her approach is absolutely as valid as ours, if not more so.
but she speaks from basically the same Worldview as we do…
In a word (so to speak), a Gender-Equal (if not more so) Jungian Worldview. She has advanced degrees in this Worldview, we just have a ton of reading, access from past lives, an open Channel, and several appropriate natal planets.
We’ll look at the Full Moon from a slightly different perspective…
We’ll emphasize the Pallas Mjolnir and the Sun-Sedna Conjunction (they’re only ten minutes, or one sixth of a degree, apart – that is, Sedna Initiates the Sun only four hours after the Full Moon).
but if you combine her perspective with ours you’ll be a million miles ahead.
You also don’t want to forget the two relevant issues we’ve already talked about, the Big Grace…
The Jupiter-Saturn-Chiron Grand Trine.
and our evolving Yintegrity work as we restructure our orientation toward the Sacred…
The Jupiter T-Square with Vesta and the budding Uranus-Venus Initiation.
So those are two more perspectives to integrate. Remind me a little later and I’ll try to help pull it all back together.
Our own perspective on the Full Moon itself involves mostly Boundaries and Responsibility. Stephen Buhner (Plant Intelligence and the Imaginal World: Beyond the Doors of Perception into the Dreaming of Earth, pp.356-7) starts it off for us with some opportunities around Boundaries…
“During such moments, whether they come from a dolphin or a great tree we have unexpectedly stumbled upon in some ancient forest, we are suddenly caught up in something that has nothing to do with the human world. We feel something coming into us from out there, something that is outside our narrow human perspectives. In that moment, we are pulled out of ourselves into a world that is more ancient than the human – a place where living intelligences can teach each other as kin. We discover then that trees have been doing something more for the past 300 million years than simply pining away for our emergence.
“We feel the touch of life, of a nonhuman awareness, upon us. But more – we experience something unique to most humans in the West. An intelligence, just as subtle and sophisticated as our own, but very nonhuman, reaches out and communicates with us. Across the species divide, in spite of our isolation, a different kind of language than our own, one filled with meaning and intent, tells us something. And a new world opens up. When that happens we take a long floating leap, land somewhere else, and look around with new eyes. We experience in that moment what the ancient Greeks – the Athenians – called aisthesis, the touch of a nonhuman soul upon the deeps of us – and know that ours touches them in turn.
“We are not here for ourselves alone
“Aisthesis such as this often emerges into our experience at unexpected times. It comes sideways to our normal orientation, grabs the depths of us and drags us unexpectedly into a world we did not suspect existed.
“This is almost always how it begins for us in the West
“And when that happens, we abandon the view of life that does not allow us to extend interiority to dolphins or trees or rocks.
“And so break the great injunction of reductionist science
“Being unable to extend interiority and consciousness outward, as Robert Bly once said, keeps human beings isolated in their own house and, in extreme cases, we simply look out at a world with which we have no possibility of contact. We are cut off from the metaphysical background of the world and our perceptual capacities are kept in a box.
“A box that science teaches us is the whole world
“If that box is very tiny, as it is with strict reductionists, the mind can see very little of the real world that lies outside the box; there is only the human on a ball of resources hurling around the sun. All things in the universe – from that orientation – center around the human, for there is no exterior consciousness. To such scientists the sun may no longer revolve around the Earth but it most certainly still revolves around human beings.
“But … once you are touched by a living intelligence from out there, you are changed. It is nearly impossible not to be. The living reality of that experience works on the self, undermining the old paradigm, and you begin to, more and more frequently, step outside the normal habituated boundaries of the Western world. You begin to enter an older, wilder, less domesticated world, the place barbarians inhabit, where the hair begins to grow long, where wild lights begin to gleam in the eye. You begin to enter the wilderness that still lies underneath the concrete of the civilized world.”
Boundaries used to mean being able to say No! and being honest without offending. We’re stretching a bit here, eh? A stretch that’s necessary if we give a shit about the future of the Planet, let alone our grandkids.
The Sedna discovery chart features a Pallas T-Square with Chiron and Saturn. Plus, the May 14 Sedna-Sun Initiation occurs at 25 Taurus, “A vast public park” – aka The Commons.
The folks who have been teaching us about Pi emphasize that our Piscean Victims no longer have a starring role in the Age of Aquarius. We need to prioritize and Focus our Energy on What We Want rather than wallowing in our “They won’t let us have it” Victimhood. Remember what we said about Unconscious Despair in The Ides of May?
Don’t waste the Chiron Grand Trine we have for the rest of May – get your butte in gear!
This Full Moon adds another layer of Responsibility. We can no longer be Victims of our Relationship Patterns.
Kelley was riffing on the Venus-Uranus Conjunction square to Jupiter and Pluto, plus the Venus-Mars Mutual Reception, when she brought Relationship into her Full Moon reading. We’re extending that, as our three-degree focus and adding the asteroids puts more weight on the Jupiter T-Square with Vesta and Uranus-Venus. Plus, a major element of the Sedna discovery chart was a Venus T-Square with Mars and Jupiter, while Venus was flanked closely by Pluto and Vesta. So Sedna tells us to stop projecting and get intimate and beyond Judgment and Denial with our own Anima and Animus.
In the Sedna discovery chart (which tells us about the Full Moon because it tells us about Sedna, and Sedna is very close to the Sun at Full Moon) the Sun is on the South Node (taking responsibility for one’s Karma), and there are two Pythagorean Tricolors – Pallas Square Saturn Quincunx Venus Trine Pallas…
If you aren’t sure where to Focus to stretch our Boundaries, Ask yourself What would the Heart do?
and Mars Square Venus Quincunx Saturn Trine Mars…
If your Inner Boy and Inner Girl are already married, then Relationship to you is something you do just for fun, not something you do out of need or with difficulty. If that’s not you, then Ask yourself What’s The Most Important Thing I should be Focusing on?
Okay, we’ve covered a lot of ground. Time to review and reintegrate.
- Kelley suggests that we work on our Victim spaces, reminds us that it’s our Inner Female who leads because she’s the one who understands what’s important to us, and challenges us to a fourth-step inventory of who we really are.
- We remind about the Big Grace and Sacred Yintegrity work that’s part of the Full Moon.
- Our own Full-Moon focus is on Boundaries, Responsibility, and Relationship.
Which all fits together surprisingly well. We could wrap it up thus…
This is a remarkable opportunity to Let Go of any and all Patterns, especially Relationship Patterns, that keep us from living out our Deepest Desires. Not only are they up in our face, but there’s very strong Grace behind our Intentions.
