A Thousand Words

January 28, 2013

I know its almost impossible for non-astrologers to make sense of the circular geometries we’re always babbling about, so let’s draw some pictures.  Here’s the Mjolnir to the Pallas-Uranus Initiation that’s going on just about … now.


A Mjolnir or Vajra or Hammer of Thor or Thunderbolt (the purple and red lines) is composed of an Apex planet at the far Midpoint between two other planets that are three Signs apart (Square – the red line).  The purple lines are the Eighth-Harmonic Angles, or Sesquisquares, connecting planets that are four-and-a-half Signs, or a Square-and-a-half, apart.  A Sesquisquare signifies Realignment, Coming into Balance, and the Mjolnir implies an Epiphany.   Either shakes up the status quo, and one will probably initially experience that as Disruption, and only later as Growth in Consciousness.  We’re deep in a very personal Mjolnir right now – do you concur?

You can compare the Mjolnir to the narrower Yod (the green and blue lines), which is an Apex planet at the far Midpoint between two other planets that are two Signs apart (Sextile, the blue line) – or two Quincunxes to the same Apex planet.  A Quincunx (the green lines) is formed by two planets that are five Signs apart.  The Quincunx symbolizes Curiosity, and the Yod opens a door to new perceptions that can bring previously unrelated phenomena into relationship.  That of course can mean that there is initial Confusion over apparently mismatched Energies, but as we know Confusion is the first step in Growth of Consciousness.  The Quincunx and Yod are Twelfth-Harmonic Angles and Configurations, and the Twelfth Harmonic is about Pattern-Breaking.

A T-Square is, like a Yod and Mjolnir, a triangle, but wider than the Mjolnir.  It’s formed by two planets in Opposition or six Signs apart, with a third planet at their Midpoint.  The third planet Squares both of the other planets.  Like the red lines in this picture…


Which is a picture of a Diamond Star – which occurs when a T-Square and a Yod share the same Apex planet.  You can see the “Bowl of Grace” (the blue lines, Sextiles and Trines) under the T-Square.  A T-Square represents Mastery through Challenge – it’s not a problem to be solved, but an adventure to be lived.  T-Squares are enormously frustrating as long as we strive to succeed at solving the dilemma they present.  And enormously rewarding when we realize that a T-Square is a graduate seminar in exploring all facets of an issue.  When we become Curious about what plot twists our T-Square Hero’s Journey will produce next (which Curiosity can be provoked by the Quincunxes), and are willing to expand our perspectives (as the Yod invites us to do), the result is the Bowl of Grace that resolves the T-Square.

You can also see the Pentagram, or five-pointed Star, symbolizing Manifestation.  The Triple Yod below also shows off a Pentagram – there are Yods pointing at the Apex of this Configuration, and Yods pointing at each of the feet.  I’ve never seen this Configuration named.  Since it looks to me like a big electric transmission tower, I’ve called it an Energy Star, but if you called it a Bat Star or a Standing Grizzly Star instead, I can see why!


While the Energy Star might be less of a Hero’s Journey than the Diamond Star, it’s got more than enough Grace (blue) and Curiosity (green) to ameliorate the Challenges (red) and inspire us to great enthusiasm.

This next and last picture shows two Golden Yods or Quintile Yods (the orange lines) – a Golden Yod Configuration is composed of a planet at the far Midpoint between two other planets that are Quintile to one another.  A Quintile is one fifth of the way ’round the Zodiac, the Fifth Harmonic.  The longer orange lines are Biquintiles – two fifths of the way ’round.


The Fifth Harmonic is about Teaching and Learning.  As with a Quincunx Yod, the planet at the Apex of the Golden Yod is probably not harmonious with the planets at the base – for instance, Aries and Gemini and Leo are Dynamic, while Scorpio and Capricorn are Magnetic.  So a Golden Yod will Teach us about harmonizing contrasts like a Quincunx Yod does – and provide us with a deep skill to Teach others.

Now these two Golden Yods are occurring as we speak, so it may behoove us to have a look at the planets involved – one has Juno at the Apex with Moon and Vesta-Jupiter for feet, and the other has Saturn at the Apex with Pallas-Uranus and Lilith-Ceres at the Base.

For the first we could say that our Emotional response (Moon) to the ongoing Expansion (Jupiter) of our Heart-connection to ourselves (Vesta) is making a profound shift in our Unconscious Identity (Juno).  I can vouch for that, though I was “blaming” other factors and not appreciating the gift!  Remember that both Vesta and Jupiter are Stationary (Strong)!

And for the second we could propose that our budding willingness to stand up for (Pallas) our True Self (Uranus: Pallas is Conjoining Uranus as we speak!) is combining with a process that is giving our Inner Feminine (Lilith) more Power to Sustain us (Ceres), and as these two Energies converge it will be easier for us to Focus (Saturn) on finding the perfect role for ourselves in the New Paradigm.

Here’s an outstanding epic ballad by Kelley Hunter on exactly this subject…

More Big Doin’s – Portal 1.26

January 26, 2013


What’s He Saying?

Whoa, Magic is afoot big-time over the next eight hours!

Why Is He Saying That?

Kelley Hunter’s Cosmic News emails are always full of insights – to sign up, ask her how at  She’s a great advocate of the Ascendance of the Deep Feminine and an honorary She-Bear…

She’s put out a special issue of Cosmic News for today’s Full Moon, and it isn’t on her website yet, so I’ll quote some of it.  Focusing on the Saturn T-Square that it makes, she says that this Full Moon…

“feels like a really important, community unity celebration time…  While Saturn brings a test, it can also be taken up as a time to deeply set intention for outcomes in reality. 

“What can we do with the energy of this Full Moon?  An immense impact can be made with waves of love expressed from the heart – gratitude for the gift of life, appreciation for loved ones, delight in the loveliness of flowers.  This is the stuff of life. Let more and more of us experience this more often.  This Full Moon is an opportune, even magic moment to join together with others to create meaningful manifestations.  It can be a turning point within our circles, groups and communities if we allow it to be.  Scorpio is the sign of fusion.  As we come together and share resources on many levels, our impact is greater.

“LEO is the creative expression of the individual.  Aquarius is the group context.  What is your role in your group or community?  Saturn’s placement suggests that some associations are coming to an end, some organizations disbanding or reforming.  It is time for the next level of engagement, to find a social milieu in which we can be more creative, to feel more in synch with our peers or with our wider community.

“This Full Moon channels a lot of energy, which we feel in our hearts.  As our hearts open, boundaries, defensiveness and judgments dissolve.  Reality shifts with a big smile.  ‘Come on, people, smile on your brother.  Everybody get together, try to love one another right now.’ The Youngbloods sang another good set of Aquarian lyrics –”

Bravo!  Just send a comment if you’d like me to forward the whole email, as it contains much more, as she also relates the Full Moon to the Jupiter-Vesta Yods.

The Moon itself also heads a Yod with Chiron and Pluto forming the legs.  Since the Moon is an Alchemist that congeals Matter out of Energy, what an opportunity to permanently transform (Pluto) our lives (and the Planet, through Co-Creation) with Miracles (Chiron).

Really all we have to do is PIAVA a perspective or two that make all of what we formerly saw as “problems” into opportunities.

Even more remarkable, starting about 8pm PST and running past midnight (12am PST on 1/27), the Moon creates a Triple Yod – the Moon and Vesta-Jupiter form the Base of a Yod with Pluto at the Apex, while the Moon and Vesta-Jupiter are each the Apex of their own Yods!  Wow.

  • The Pluto-Apex Yod will channel Alchemical Emotional Power (Moon) and Sacred Meaning (Vesta-Jupiter) into Trance Formation (Pluto)!  Affirming Kelley’s intuition that our Intentions (and our PAVA too) have great power here.
  • The Moon-Apex Yod, as we said,  creates an opportunity to permanently transform our lives and the Planet with Miracles.
  • The Vesta-Apex Yod can be summarized as the Heart (Vesta) iteratively approving and vetoing trial versions of our Plans (Saturn) for adapting our lives to the Changes that are taking place on the Planet (Pluto).

And they all mesh together without friction, although as we’ll see soon there will be a few minor challenges.

The Big Deal here is that we’re taking Curiosity Cubed –  Curiosity times Curiosity times Curiosity.  And you know what we think about Curiosity, how it’s the spiritual-intellectual equivalent of Love.  And you know well that All there is is Love, Love, Love is all there is.  So our three Yods become…

  • I wonder what sort of wonderful things I’ll be helping to Co-Create!?!
  • I wonder how our lives and the Planet will be Changed!?!
  • I wonder what will happen when I stop thinking about transforming and just transform!?!

and together,

  • Wow, I wonder how the World will be different tomorrow!?!

Challenges!?!  Did you say Challenges?  We don’t need no stinkin’ Challenges!  The Triple-Yod Pattern is like a giant electrical transmission tower, a five-pointed star with a pinhead.  I guess we could call it an Energy Star, that sounds better than a Pinhead Star.  It looks a lot like a Giant, so we could also call it a Giant Star.  But there are Squares from the end of each arm to the corresponding foot – Moon to Saturn (waning) and Vesta to Chiron (waxing).

  • The waning Moon-Saturn Square advises us to just let go of everything we’ve been planning to do and create, and open ourselves up to the Void – to Unlimited Creative Potential.  We don’t need to control this intellectually, our Heart is in control, and Her connections reach very deeply into the Unconscious – in other words, Let Go and Let God.
  • Which is just about exactly what a waxing Vesta-Chiron Square would advise; it would say, Hey, we’re about to make permanent the Miracle of living a Heart-Centered Life, so set your preconceptions aside please!

The Challenges will just be our Resistance to all that – no big deal, right?

What’d He Say?

An Energy Star forms around today’s Full Moon, with Pluto (Transformation) at the head.  Let go of all expectations except your Expectation of Miracles!
