New Year Dark Moon, 1 January 2014
A New Year of many break trough’s
The day of the official New Year we also have a Dark Moon constellation which shows quite clear what to expect this coming year. The square figure is in some aspect systems open between Uranus and Jupiter, but I chose the closed one for this reading, it makes more sense.
Pluto is on the same degree as the sun/moon conjunction and mercury within 2° , which makes it a very powerful conjunction!
I often have referred to Pluto in a different way than traditional astrology and would like to emphasize here again, that, looking from a more mythological perspective, Pluto has a different role and is probably very much misinterpreted and misunderstood.
It is the face of the Goddess that is invisible and those who have seen it, die! She is the one that is the Goddess of the Hades, the Underworld during 1/3 of her life, but she is also the one who gives birth to the new on all levels. She is the Goddess of transformation and the Mother of all that is. As the Mother (matter) “eats” her own children when they die and is re-birthing them when they born again, clothing her with the body they live in.
It is here very important to understand, that we are not the humans we think we are. We can’t identify ourselves with the body, because the body is matter and we are not. Our true identity is sprit that we can’t see. We are clothed in matter, in a body to be able to have a human experience.
Therefore we can say that we don’t have a life …. We ARE life!
The body is the vehicle we need to experience and be here, but not who we are.
This coming year with Pluto, Mercury and Venus in Sagittarius in 10th house at GMT, will bring huge break trough’s and a lot of people will wake up and realize that they brought a genuine and unique personality to this world. They will realize that they have skills that are special and that there is not just an “elite” of special people, but ALL people are special and unique!
Thins insight will force people to rethink their lives and bring that extra effort to bring the “inside out”. The opposite of the moon constellation, represented by ret Jupiter in Gemini is the indication that humanity is confronted with a massive expansion within! It’s not that others offer it from the outside! This is what I would call awakening that starts inside, that activates something within the individual.
It’s not like a loud ringing alarm clock but the gentle waking up of a person who is ready to get up, ready to leave the warm bed and get involved into life and adventure. It ‘s that stirring inside that the world out there is not what people want an the readiness to do something about it.
Many might not be completely clear yet what this is all about, but the stirring has begun and people start to question the norm, the dogma and the rules. It’s like the hippies from the 60’s are waking up, but on a different level of consciousness. It’s not so much about a sex revolution, which actually then just bounced back into a opposite movement, but more a consciousness revolution.
Saturn in Libra is connected with a trine to ret Jupiter, the balancing is being done inside first and will from there cast waves. The heart is being touched now. A protective shell is braking and like the stone, thrown into the water creates ripples, the same happens with the thoughts, when the “iron wall” is falling and the heart is palpable again. Let me add here a story that inspired me many years ago and I want to share it today, as a motto for this coming calendar year 2014
Inspiring Heart story – Most Beautiful Heart
One day a young man was standing in the middle
of the town proclaiming that he had the most
beautiful heart in the whole valley. A large
crowd gathered and they all admired his heart
for it was perfect.
There was not a mark or a flaw in it.
Yes, they all agreed it truly was the most
beautiful heart they had ever seen.
The young man was very proud and boasted
more loudly about his beautiful heart.
Suddenly, an old man appeared at the front of
the crowd and said, “Why your heart is not
nearly as beautiful as mine.”
The crowd and the young man looked at the
old man’s heart. It was beating strongly,
but full of scars, it had places where pieces
had been removed and other pieces put in, but
they didn’t fit quite right and there were
several jagged edges. In fact, in some places
there were deep gouges where whole pieces
The people stared — how can he say his heart
is more beautiful, they thought?
The young man looked at the old man’s heart
and saw its state and laughed.
“You must be joking,” he said.
“Compare your heart with mine, mine is perfect
and yours is a mess of scars and tears.”
“Yes,” said the old man, “Yours is perfect
looking but I would never trade with you.
You see, every scar represents a person to
whom I have given my love – I tear out a piece
of my heart and give it to them, and often
they give me a piece of their heart which fits
into the empty place in my heart, but because
the pieces aren’t exact, I have some rough edges,
which I cherish, because they remind me of the
love we shared. “Sometimes I have given pieces of my heart
away, and the other person hasn’t returned
a piece of his heart to me. These are the
empty gouges — giving love is taking a chance.
Although these gouges are painful, they stay open,
reminding me of the love I have for these people too,
and I hope someday they may return and fill the
space I have waiting. So now do you see what true beauty is?”
The young man stood silently with tears running
down his cheeks. He walked up to the old man,
reached into his perfect young and beautiful heart,
and ripped a piece out. He offered it to the old
man with trembling hands
The old man took his offering, placed it in his heart
and then took a piece from his old scarred heart and
placed it in the wound in the young man’s heart.
It fit, but not perfectly, as there were some jagged edges.
The young man looked at his heart, not perfect
anymore but more beautiful than ever,
since love from the old man’s heart flowed into his.
They embraced and walked away side by side.
~ The End~
Have a happy, genuine and loving New Year 2014!
**SkyView Astrology (outer circle) works with the real star-constellations. Western/Tropical Astrology (inner circle) has nothing to do with the stars anymore and their 1˚ Aries is 28˚ apart from the true star constellations, the Vedic/Indian system is 6˚ different. SkyView Astrology does not tell you who you are, but shows the blueprint/roadmap of one’s life and the time quality. It also is no fortune telling tool and can’t predict the future. The Western Astrology has nothing to do with the Stars, but is a method to show how the sun moves trough the season – which makes a certain sense in the northern hemisphere, but doesn’t make any sense bear and below the equator in the southern hemisphere – for more information go to www.skyviewastrology.com
For your convenience I list the dates when the sun enters the signs:
Aries: 25° April 18, Taurus: 36° – May 13, Gemini: 28° – June 21 Cancer: 20° – July 20, Leo: 36° – Aug 10, Virgo: 44° – Sept 16, Libra: 23° Oct 30, , Scorpio: 25° – Nov 23, Sagittarius: 33° – Dec 17, Capricorn: 28° – Jan 20, Aquarius: 25° – Feb 16, Pisces: 37° – March 11
The dates of the transition of the sun are based on the guidelines of IAU (International Astronomical Union).**
