Okay, after a long bout of techno-obsolescence we’ve achieved visuals again, so we can go back to involving the “right brain” too. This is how we do what we do. Let’s temporarily take the 10 April Full Moon chart apart, starting with the 20-26 Degree region that the Full Moon itself occupies…
Focusing for the moment on just the heavier lines, we can see three intertwining Configurations…
- The Grand Cross or the red box with the red “X” in the middle
- The Trine Bridge or the blue lines connecting two corners of the red box
- A Finger of God, which is the green arrowhead, pointing to the same place in the upper right as the blue lines do
The Full Moon is the diagonal red line from upper left to lower right. The Moon at upper left Conjoins Haumea (Rebirth), and the Sun at lower right Conjoins Uranus and Eris (Honesty about our Soul Self) – more of what we’ve been enduring for the last five years, the Urge to be Forthcoming with our True Self.
Red lines signify Energy (or of course Resistence to same – the Unconscious knows Dimension but not Direction, so Opposites are Equal in its Realm). The diagonal from lower left to upper right is the Square to the Full Moon, Pluto (Transformation) on the lower left to Vesta (Unconscious Beliefs) on the upper right, which is labeled “oob” or Out of Bounds, which means Strong.
The resulting red Square containing a red “X” is called a Grand Cross, and it signifies Motivation. It’s like we have four full-time jobs to do here (Rebirth, Honesty, Transformation, Beliefs) at the same time, so we’re constantly rushing from one to the other. We don’t really get a lot of Choice, as this is happening in the Unconscious, so we can’t easily quit or shortchange any of the four, we just have to be an Efficient Multi-tasker. That’s Motivation.
Basically, in order to be Reborn as our Soul Self in Human form, we have to get our Unconscious Beliefs Transformed. Our Unconscious Beliefs consist of our Karmic Habituations, our Childhood Programming (which is often a Mirror for our Karma), and the various prejudices we Learn from our Culture. Archetypes they’re called – Constellations of Energy that are stronger than, and usually invisible to, our Ego.
That is, they run our Show. Our Archetypes Enchant or En-Trance us. We’re Zombies under their Command. When we refer to Pluto as symbolizing Transformation, what we really mean is Formation of a New Trance. On the Global scale, this is the nature of a Zeitgeist.
The blue lines represent Grace, the long blue line “Dumb-Luck” Grace (a “Trine”) that happens to us, and the short blue line (a “Sextile”) “Working” Grace, where Grace flows but we have to make the first move to get it started, like a matching grant.
You can see the “Trine Bridge” across the Full Moon, with Moon-Haumea (Rebirth) Trine Veritas-Chaos (The Truth of Limitlessness), which Sextiles Sun-Uranus-Eris (“I Gotta Be Me”). A Trine Bridge shows us the “easy way out” of the potential hassles (too much Energy) of the Grand Cross; in this case we see that we can facilitate our Rebirth by Letting Go of our Limitations.
The long green lines are “Quincunxes,” linking Planets that are five Signs apart, or five/twelfths of the way ’round the Zodiac from one another (Quin = 5, Unx=12). They symbolize Curiosity. Curiosity is in bed with Love, since they both eschew Judgment, and Judgment is the Opposite of Love. We don’t mean Curiosity as in “How does that work?” We mean Curiosity as in “Wow, look at that! Isn’t that Amazing!” – the kind of Awe and Wonder you see in the face of any Newborn.
Obviously, True Curiosity can be Scary, as many of us crave the false Security provided by Understanding. The shortcoming of Understanding is that it’s Conditional; even when it’s accurate and relevant, it’s vitally dependent upon the current Zeitgeist. If we’ve succeeded in Accepting, simultaneously, as many different Perspectives as we can get our hands on, we’ll be less “thrown” when a Zeitgeist Changes, but even in the best case it will be a major Adjustment.
The short green lines are “Unxes,” linking two planets that are one Sign apart, or one twelfth of the way around the Loop. Unxes are about Pattern-Breaking. Unxes and Quincunxes are members of the Twelfth Harmonic. The Fifth Harmonic is about Learning, so a Quin-Unx is about Learning to Break Patterns. How do we do that? We drop into Curiosity.
When two long green lines converge – as they do on Veritas-Chaos, it’s called a “Finger of God” – that is, the Universe is saying “Pay Attention to this!” and “Don’t try to Understand it – It Is What It Is.” and “Accept it as an Assumption, not as a Logical Conclusion.” Veritas-Chaos is about the Truth of Limitlessness, so this is a request by the Universe that we Loosen up on our Belief that we Understand it All.
So this segment of the New Moon chart tells us that…
- In order to be Reborn as our Soul Self in Human form, we have to get our Unconscious Beliefs Transformed
- We can facilitate our Rebirth by Letting Go of our Limitations
- The Universe has requested that we Loosen up on our Belief that we Understand it All
Pretty straightforward, eh?
