Should anyone want to Learn or Interpret their Experience relative to the “Stars” or Time anything, the specific event runs something like this…
- 29 November…
- 4am PST – New Moon at 8 Sagittarius, “Within the depths of the Earth new elements are being formed: The alchemical fire which both purifies and transforms the very substance of huper inner life.“
- 5am PST – Juno Initiates Moon at 8 Sagittarius.
- 9am PST – Nemesis Initiates Moon at 10 Sagittarius, “A theatrical representation of a golden-haired Goddess of Opportunity.“
- noon PST – Juno Initiates Sun at 8 Sagittarius.
- 2 December 1pm – Nemesis Initiates Sun at 12 Sagittarius, A flag turns into an Eagle which turns into a Rooster saluting the Dawn.
Sagittarius 12 is the Degree of the Pluto-Chiron Initiation at the dawn of the current Century. We can interpret Pluto-Chiron as “There Is No Other Option But Love,” the flag as nationalism and other group-Identification Archetypes (including Race and Patriarchy), the Eagle as being Forced to adopt a wider viewpoint, and the Rooster as Herald of the Light.
You could Interpret the Eagle/Rooster trigger as a nucular holocaust (which would make a very bright Light) or you could Intend that the triggers are a lot more peaceful. I’m reminded of the sudden and sharp transition from flag to Eagle/Banty Rooster created by the Kent State murders, a four-Person Human Sacrifice. Noble and Skillful Souls.
The Chiron-Pluto Cycle is currently two elevenths of the way around the Loop. The Eleventh Harmonic is about Self-Confidence – “the beauty that we all possess in our gifts, talents, and resources which can quell the beasts or demons within our nature” – Angeles Arrien, Tarot Handbook, p.66. A hint about the Recovery of our Abandoned Genius. We won’t get to the Waxing Square, when the Energy breaks out into the Open – or into the Light, until 2028.
The second step in the eleven-step march around the Zodiac is about Ritual – the Power of Repetition. We could effectively tag it as “Fake it (Self-Confidence) till you Make it.” If we’re Paying Attention Lovingly, each time we Fake it we’ll receive important Information about the Obstacles between us and True Self-Trust. With Karma Dead, this could lead very rapidly to True Self-Trust, a solid corollary to our recently-Reborn and about-to-Deepen Self-Love.
The Energy of a New Cycle is evident around its Initiation, then goes Underground till the Waxing Square, at which point it begins to pervade the mainstream. Notice that Equal Rights for Minorities and Women was prominent around the Pluto-Uranus Initiation in the 1960s, and now that we’re past the 2012-2015 Uranus-Pluto Waxing Square, Equal Rights are very much under attack, just when they should be breaking out into the Light.
In my neighborhood it was the High School students who spontaneously and vigorously marched to object to the apparent return to institutionalized Racism and Misogyny. How the Reaction and Response to this evolves will be telling.
We should be able to detect the Energy of the Juno-Moon/Sun and Nemesis-Moon/Sun Cycles over the next few days. The Juno Cycles are about Emergence of the Unrecognized, and the Nemesis Cycles about the Appearance of Opportunity, with an emphasis on Appearance; it’s interesting that the Goddess was blond. Remember that the Underlying December Energy is about Learning by Observing without Judgment or Conclusion.
The Appearance of Opportunity suggests that we take advantage of it while remaining skeptical, without putting all of our eggs in the basket. Saturn (which would suggest Concentration on the Best Option) is not Strongly Lit Up here, so we can safely Hedge. Over the next week, keep an eye out for anything you don’t Recognize, particularly an Opportunity that you wouldn’t otherwise Recognize. Invest in it, but don’t bet the ranch.
The Moon-Juno and Moon-Nemesis Cycles will be about the immediate Emotional Impact of these Circumstances. The Cycles hit their Waxing Squares on 7 December. Dip a toe into your Unexpected Opportunity this week, then stay alert next week for Confirmation that your hunch was right, or Suggestion that it needs adjustment. Invest more into the Trend, with or without adjustment, next week.
While the Moon Cycles are short enough that it makes sense to combine the two, the Solar Cycles are longer. By the time they get to their Waxing Squares next April, they’ll be two weeks apart, the Sun-Juno Emergence Cycle Opening in the first week, and the Sun-Nemesis Opportunity Cycle Leafing Out in the third week of April. The Solar Cycles are more substantial, so you’ll want more evidence than your Instincts will deliver. Plan to carefully review your Investments in April, and bail out if the Trends aren’t bending your way.
