Great Summer Solstice 2014!

Good Rising! Just wanted to acknowledge the powerful alignment that is going on at this monet. Not only is this the time known as the Summer Solstice, it is also the time when the Sun moves into Sidereal Gemini. It is rare for these events to line up side really, even though it happens four times a year in the Western Astrology system.  The word solstice, means Sun Stops. From our position, it appears that the Sun stops for three days in its motion across the sky. The Sun rises in the same position for three days, then heads back in the opposite direction.

Vasilis Kanatas writes at astrology13.com

After a course of 37 days in Taurus, the Sun enters to Gemini on June 21 at 19:40 GMT. June 21 is also the Sun’s summer solstice, ie the day when the Sun reaches its maximum removal from the celestial equator. The Ancient Greeks called the solstice “Heliostasion” = Sun’s standstill or Stop, because the sun seemed motionless in Heaven for several days!
From an astrological point of view, therefore, is at least incongruous to have Solstice and sign transit on the same day. Stagnation and move on the same time! Therefore the path of the Sun in Gemini this year is marked by many contradictions and reversals.

 

 

(By the way, MERCURY IS STILL RETROGRADE UNTIL JULY 1)

This combined with the current Jupiter exaltation in Cancer, we are in for quite a ride this year.  Here are some of the highlights we can look forward to this year:

I for one am very happy about this transition, because although in the Western Astrology System, I am a Leo, and in the Vedic (Hindu/Indian) Astrology System, I am a Taurus, in the True Sidereal Astrology System I am a Cancer! Saturn has been giving me quite a challenge and is expected to continue doing so until 2025! So, this upcoming cycle is much anticipated.

When Jupiter enters Cancer, it will be at the CENTER of the Sacred Hoop in the Lakota Tradition, from the
shamanic astrologer archives 2002
The Sacred Hoop

Starting at what is currently at positioned at the top of the Hoop moving clockwise, the stars comprising the Hoop are: Pollux, Castor, Capella, the Pleiades, the Hyades, Rigel, Sirius, and Procyon. The Ecliptic (plane of the solar system) and the Milky Way (plane of the galaxy) cross through and intersect near the middle of this configuration, actually forming a cross within a circle. The place of the intersection is between the feet of the Twins and the horns of the Bull. At this current time the exact placement of the summer solstice (0 degree Cancer) falls on this intersection. Also to be noted is that the location of the galactic anti-center (looking out into deep space from our vantage point as an outlier solar system in the Milky Way galaxy) lies very close to this grand intersection just slightly off the ecliptic.

 

The Lakota Sioux and some other Plains Indians called this region THE SACRED HOOP. It was considered to be extremely auspicious when the Moon and Planets moved through the Hoop.

Numerous myths and oral histories from Native American to Egyptian to Northern-European to Babylonian have referred to this intersection of the Milky way with the Zodiac as the place where souls enter into incarnation. This was sometimes known as the “gate of Cancer’. (Note that the opposite point of the sky, between the Scorpion and the Archer in the direction of the galactic center, known as the ‘gate of Capricorn’ was seen as an exit point, where souls leave upon death.) The soul was seen to be flowing down the Milky Way and then entering between the Bull and Twins in these tellings.

Inside the Hoop we also have the constellation most popularly known in the western world as Orion. The Mayans perceived the sword of Orion as a sacred fire of creation inside a fire pit. Amazingly, modern astronomers have discovered that this region of space is actually churning out new stars! As a last example, an Alaskan shamanic tradition perceived the great equilateral triangle in the Hoop formed by Sirius, Procyon, and Betelgeuse, as a ‘heavens gate’, another version of an entry point or entrance into incarnation.

The point of all this is to demonstrate how this region of the sky relates to beginnings and origins. Remember that the equinox based calendars all began whilst the Spring Equinox was located inside the Sacred Hoop. And the Egyptian “first time’ mythos was connected to these configurations inside the Hoop, when the Winter Solstice was located there. And now, 13,000 years later, the Summer Solstice is precisely there.” ShamanicAstrologer.com

Please Note: The Quechua Natives in Peru refer to the intersection of the Milky Way with the Ecliptic as the Great Cross. The Original Cross. In the Southern hemisphere, this is marked by a constellation with the same name.

The Gate to Capricorn is really pointing towards the center of the Milky Way, right through OPHIUCHUS!

Jupiter Transits Cancer- 19.06.2014!

 

from astrocamp.com

Jupiter takes around 365 days to complete its transit in a zodiac sign. This is the reason that when astrologers foresee an incident happening in an year, they take the transit of Jupiter as its basis for calculating the timing of the event, many times.

Jupiter rules over expansion; thus, it makes a small tumour turn into Cancer (incurable disease). It controls lawyers, teachers, priests, rebirth, north direction, philosophy, spiritual gurus, new ideas, new constructions, and gods. In the body parts, it has control over liver, fat, thighs, and toes. In nature, it controls calmness, peace, and serenity. In business, it controls temples, trusts, schools, courts, foreign agencies, contracts, jail, navy, and hospitals. In manufacturing, it has control over oily foods, fatty foods, buttery items, cheese, sweets, rubber, and gold. In places, it has control over schools, colleges, courts, temples, big halls, churches, mosques, worship place in our homes, pictures of saints, and gods. It also has control over elephants, horses, oxen, peacocks, religious trees, cashew nuts, groundnuts, almonds, etc. in nutshell.

ASTROLOGICAL SIGNIFICANCE OF JUPITER TRANSIT 2014

The most momentous time of the year for you to change your destiny is almost here. It is the one planetary transit that Yogis have looked forward to for the past 12 years and coincidently it takes place on a Thursday, a day ruled by Jupiter. Because Thursday June 19th, is when the great benevolent planet Jupiter moves into the sign of Cancer and gets exalted. Jupiter is considered pure grace and is known for his providential help during times of utter hopelessness. The things that Jupiter brings into your life lasts a long time: children, knowledge, growth of consciousness, and lasting wealth. Since Jupiter will stay in Cancer until July 13th, 2015 his influence will have a great impact on your life and on the world.

Jupiter

 

Cancer

On Thursday June 19th, 2014 at 8.00 AM IST, Jupiter will move into the zodiac sign of Cancer. The Day and the Moon are both ruled by Jupiter, as the Moon will be in Jupiter’s star Purvabhadra. This is a great coincidence, so the day will be totally filled with Jupiter’s energy. Jupiter is the planet that brings in luck,
money, reputation, the best in any matter.
 He is the divinity within you, your higher consciousness. A good Jupiter makes you very practical and will cause you to save money, to invest wisely, and to pursue higher education. And until November, not only is Jupiter exalted but so is Saturn.

 

 

Jupiter

The two outer planets being exalted together create the powerful yoga: RESCUERS FROM KALI YUGA (yuga means epoch). JUPITER and SATURN are the planets that rescue people from sin and reveals the correct way to attain wealth, prosperity and spiritual bliss. No other planets can give the yoga to overcome the obstacles and blockages of the Kali Yuga. This is a once in a lifetime event as the energy of these planets will not repeat in our lifetime. This is, this Yuga’s Yoga.

Every year, Jupiter, the lord of Fortune, moves from one sign to another and sets the stage of human consciousness for the resulting year. In 2014, Jupiter enters Cancer on June 19th and will remain there for one year.

 

General Predictions: How Jupiter’s Move will Influence You? from astroved.com

When you are connected to Jupiter, he helps you to rise above a situation and to gain a bird’s eye view and consequently higher knowledge to improve a situation. Jupiter helps you aspire for things that you thought to be beyond your boundaries of imagination. He will also facilitate better development of sixth sense – good intuition power.

The transit of Jupiter is a time when you can seek and obtain the maximum benefits from Jupiter. It is very helpful to acquire Jupiter’s assistance in overriding any negative afflictions you have from any other planet. But, if Jupiter is unfavorably placed, i.e. when he cannot protect you, you are more prone to inner fears, distractions from others who could harm your reputation, and loss of opportunities for wealth. In some cases, without proper awareness and prevention, longer term problems could be created which requires much time and energy to reverse.

“For the archer, everything rests upon its capacity to aim well. Hitting the target is a metaphor that reveals a metaphysical attribute of the human mind. If one’s thought process remains fixed on a clear intention, then in the same way that the archer carefully directs his arrow, the mind obtains its prized goal; the target is reached. Jupiter prompts persons to think more deeply about what they aim at so that they can align their actions and intentions accordingly. Jupiter’s exaltation in Cancer appears to have blessed the United States, given its July 4 birth date. Many of America’s allies also fall under the cardinal signs: Aries, Cancer, Libra, and Capricorn. And it just so happens that these pivotal signs are where the cosmic action has been taking place since 2010. That emphasis remains in place for the next few years.

Given its 12-year orbit, Jupiter has transited the nation’s birth sign 8 times during the course of the 20th century. Only one of those previous transits holds striking parallels with our current era. If we turn back the pages of time to examine what took place when Uranus last transited Aries (1927-1935), we will find that Jupiter was also in Cancer from July 1930-July 1931. What historical evidence shows up? It was the onset of the Great Depression, massive citizen unrest reverberated throughout Europe (much of it based on inflamed ethnic rivalries), and a Dust Bowl was in its beginning stages. Interestingly enough, Pluto was then transiting Cancer (1914-1939), the sign that opposes its present position. That means that Pluto was forming a square to Uranus which is also currently the case. And the historical parallels speak for themselves.”

May Full Moon 2014 Celestial Update: Mars Direct, Sedna, Mercury Retrograde, and Jupiter Cancer Transit!

Featured

Wow. There’s a lot going on to say the least…..

 

Well Right now is the Full Moon. I can see her coming up over the Redwood Trees on my street…..

here is the scoop from EarthWord SkyWord StarSignPosts from Lyn Dalebout

“Wed May 14
From the sidereal perspective (true galactic planetary alignments ~ you can read more on my website under Sidereal Astrology) today’s Full Moon takes place in the last degree of  Sun in Aries and Moon in Libra. The 29th degree, the last degree of a sign, promises that things we have hoped for, longed for, worked for often manifest at the very last minute, or as a friend once reminded me: “God’s on time at 11:59″.  Sidereal Aries is the sign of spiritual awakening, literally coming into your Mastery, and Sidereal Libra helps us discover how we share our individual gifts with others in healthy, harmonious partnerships.

 

It’s important to note that today’s Full Moon is activating and activated by the planetary Being called Sedna.  Here’s a brief description of Sedna and relevant themes that might be in play, taken from Nick Anthony Fiorenza’s Lunar Planner (http://www.lunarplanner.com ): “Sedna articulates the ‘return of the exiled feminine principle’. Sedna’s message is that humanity must recognize the truth about the suppression, persecution, abduction and exploitation of the feminine force in the world (both of females and of the feminine principle); and the mentality perpetuating such must be addressed and changed. Although it is quite obvious of our need for this re-emergence and balanced reintegration with the overly dominant patriarchal world, there is still dire hesitancy for such participation of females due to the often awry, deceptive and exploitative use of creative power by the masculine force in the world. Sedna appears to motivate action from a mature social platform, from an open, honest and inclusive humanitarian focus, into an active focus in leadership in the world; to break trail along a new path of discovery by demonstrating that a more feminine humanitarian type of leadership can provide the answers to the challenges our world faces.”

And this good news, also from Nick: “Sedna enters the constellation of Taurus in 2014-2017, supporting a more physically active and prominent participation of females in world.””

Inuit Legend of Sedna

Sedna’s Mask: Great Ocean Mother of the Inuit

Sedna, Inuit  Goddess of the Animals of the Sea

 “Sedna in a reading indicates deep, buried anger and a feeling of powerlessness. Unacknowledged or disowned anger can lead to depression. However, this anger or buried emotion is in fact very powerful and needs to be accessed, acknowledged or released in a safe manner. Take your cue from the shaman’s journey and treat this inner angry person with compassion and soothing gestures. Above all, listen.”

Back to the Oracle:
“Lastly, this intense sky dynamic is also happening today: Venus ~ principle of love, art, beauty ~  squares off with Pluto ~ ruler of power and control issues, death and rebirth. One can feel intensely obsessed or possessed, positively or negatively, with a creative project or relationship.

Thu May 15
We are still strongly feeling the effects of  yesterday’s Full Moon so re-read yesterday’s post for helpful clues as to what the heck is happening within and around you. In addition, this is wondrous event is happening: the annual Venus/Uranus conjunction. Any planetary aspect to Uranus indicates sudden breakthroughs, breakdowns or creative surges. Venus is the ruler of our physical heart, our heart’s longings and creative urges, and our personal money so expect surprising sudden shifts in any of those arenas.  Late tonight and into tomorrow morning, the driven, delving, investigative Scorpio Moon opposes Mercury in Taurus. The classic conundrum of one partner wanting to explore the underlying issues while the other party wants to see things at face value may emerge. Or one person values thinking things through while the other wants to honor intuition and feelings. These are also the astrological financial signs, so keep in mind those discussions might revolve around money or resources.: lyn dalebout

Mars Retrograde goes Direct on May 19: from darkstarastrology.com

“UNDER SILK COVERS

Since Mars is about sex as well as well as war, it will cause us to re-evaluate our sexual relationships. Our ambitions and goals also come under scrutiny. Mars retrograde may work very deep down below the surface, bringing things up very slowly, but surely. This gives it a chance to make daring decisions with a cool head and not in the usual Mars reactive way. In personal terms, warmongering could mean starting legal proceedings or initiating a new business venture. It is usually advised to wait till Mars is direct again. But if your intentions are honourable and for the greater good, then I think the universe should favourably take care of the outcome. Retrograde cycles are fated times, one must surrender to hidden forces. The problem with waiting to make a move until Mars is direct is Mars’s volcanic behaviour when it is suddenly released. It just depends how you want to play it. You might want to make use of this wild energy, so if you like playing with fire then go right ahead. If you have been unhappily celibate for a while or have been having problems reaching orgasm well…need I say more. Enjoy!” darkstarastrology.com

I am interpreting Mars going back Direct as getting back in alignment with Sekhmet energy: Maat IS the Law; Sekhment UPHOLDS the law. I have been fighting several legal battles as of late, and it feel alike all my efforts are about to blossom in exponential goodness and righteousness…

Sekhmet02

Sekhmet

The Sedna Activation is intensifying the whole Scorpio Moon Vibration with Emotions and Desires. Thankfully, we are coming back into alignment with Sekhmet in a few days, Mars Direct, which will help tremendously! Do what you gotta do, but remember to keep the  balance with HetHeru…

June 7: Mercury Retrograde until July 2. That seems like an awfully long time. That is more like a month than it s three weeks…. okay, well. remember new strategy: this is an opening for a breakthrough in order, organization, paperwork, finances, research, healing and communications thanks to Sesheta: the female counterpart to Djehuty, Goddess of Mathematics, Astrology, Astronomy, Architecture, the Sciences, books, all writings, finances, accounting, order and organization, etc. Also remember that we can awaken these cosmic forces within ourselves. We are truly Co-Creators with the Divine by the way that we direct our thoughts and emotions.

Celestial Update: 11-20-13

Welcome to TODAY!

What;s going on in the Stars the week before the New Moon?

Well Yesterday November 19, according to Earth Sky Oracle,

“And as Chiron heads back into forward motion from its retrograde, much of the therapy, healing work, creative initiatives you’ve been dreaming for the past 5 months will now start to really pay off.” EarthSkyOracle

This is GREAT NEWS!! We will be heading into Sidereal IMHOTEP (Ophiuchus) on November 30! Another Celestial Healer, Everything is l;inning up perfectly for major planetary and universal healing….

You can learn more about
the Sidereal Calendar and Ophiuchus at tchiya.com:
Celestial Wisdom: True Zodiac has 13 Signs.
Is Ophiuchus in your chart?

Imhotep

Ophiuchus

The Oracle also states for the next couple of days:

“Wed Nov 20:
A gratefully received grand trine forms between Mercury in Libra~harmonious dialogue~to Chiron in Aquarius~the healing power of friendship~to Moon in Gemini~emotional curiosity. This day holds so much promise for supportive teamwork, openness to new viewpoints even changing your point of view, and in general, just a delightfully social day. As the gregarious Moon makes a square to Uranus in Pisces~spontaneous emotional eruptions~be a counselor to someone in need or reach out for support to help you through.

Thu Nov 21:
One possibility today when the Moon conjuncts Jupiter in Gemini,  is that you may have moments of mood swings, and feel like a pendulum swinging from mild mania to deep depression and back again. Just be aware this is an energetic in the collective Field, affecting each of us in various intensities. Use appropriate tools to balance yourself. Visit your favorite bookstore (Gemini’s domain), take a drive with a friend to download the pent up emotion (Gemini loves travel, movement, talk therapy). And with the Moon/Jupiter conjunction in a helpful trine to solution-minded Saturn, and in an opposition to visionary and compassionate Venus in Sagittarius, real solutions and understanding can arise.

Thank You, EarthSkyOracle!

  • After 9 or 10 this evening, you’ll find the waning gibbous Moon shining inside a huge quadrilateral: Capella to the Moon’s upper left, Aldebaran to the Moon’s upper right, Betelgeuse closer to its lower right, and bright Jupiter far to its lower left.Wednesday, November 20
  • By late evening the waning Moon is up in the east. It’s now part of a long, ragged, roughly horizontal snake. From right to left: Rigel in Orion’s foot in the east-southeast, Orion’s Belt, Betelgeuse, the Moon, Jupiter, Pollux, and above Pollux, Castor.Thursday, November 21
  • Jupiter is the bright “star” upper left of the Moon late this evening. Although they look close together, Jupiter is currently 1,660 times farther away. And Pollux and Castor, to Jupiter’s left and upper left, are 500,000 and 730,000 times farther than Jupiter! (at 34 and 52 light-years, respectively).L
    EARTH AND SKY

On Earth, this is a great time to fast, to clear out, to make space for what is to come…..to make space for ease and grace. To make space for the wisdom of the next full moon to come….Just remember the cycle of nature: to build up and break down. To bring in and take out. nothing stays the same forever in life, except LIFE!

Stars on the other hand, are actually swirling balls of gas and fire, and they tend to burn out. Perhaps that is why we are on earth, so we can learn how to shine without burning up, or OUT! LOL!

Comet ISON is still in the news….and still visible in our skies!

Love and Light, Tchiya
