March 14, 2021 - Innocent or Not - Solar Week of 18-24 -

Finding one’s nature through dedication, determined effort, and following the way of the body

This is a general report on the major energies that drive life and evolution. Life unfolds differently for each of us. This is not a user manual for decision-making. Trust your own inner authority in meeting decisions, only you can know your truth.

The previous solar week was about conflict and quarrel leading to crisis. It also was about resolving intimate and sexual blockages, opening up emotionally, and about sexual experimentation.

This solar week is about finding (or being able to maintain) our nature through dedication, determined effort, and ultimately success through following the way of the body. If last week, we went through crisis and challenging things that required persistence, then this week can be one where we find back onto our feet. This week will be about innocence or a lack thereof, and it will be about finding deeper into universal and unconditional love.

18 March 2021 15:22 UTC: Beginning of the new solar week in ('Innocence - The Gate of The Spirit of the Self") gate 25 (Pisces) ...

Being tricked into self-betrayal by one's insecurities and fears and dropping out or jumping ship due to not being able to accept limitations – or accepting what is, trusting your inner knowing, and dealing well with crisis.

18 March 2021 17:19 UTC: ...
Crisis precedes change, and if we want to get to the progress, there is no other way than to face and sit with the crisis, and also to sit with and work through possible insecurities and fears that come up, without making impulsive decisions. No matter how dark it feels, that darkness never lasts, and ultimately things will lighten up again. What are we not ready to accept and to face?

When we have undergone a period of learning and growing, we sometimes come to places where our old form feels so constricting that we can't stay confined in it anymore, and so the friction builds up and the dam breaks and all hell breaks loose, until things calm down again, and we realize that we have shed skin and grown even bigger in that process.

In addition though, there is a strong indication that today's potential self-betrayal could also be the opposite (staying when running would be better). It could refer to giving in and giving too much to people who we either feel take advantage of us despite their claims to be selfless, or simply to people to whom we have nothing to give. ...

If there is no clarity, it is best just to sit with it, to observe ourself, the others, and the situation, and to avoid making impulsive decisions that we later might regret.

This can play out in so many ways and nuances. The main way is to truly understand what does not work, to overcome irrational delusion, and to maintain the highest values even if you are the only one doing that, and even though things might have blown up and be in chaos. There can be a need for self-defense and restraint.[118]*

February 11, 2021 - The Original Causes of Our Current Predicament -

"...this (current) assembly of planets indicates the requirement for deep rumination, to probe the original causes of our current predicament. We must cross-examine our value system ..."[117]

January 20, 2021 - This Solar Week Starts the New Yearly Cycle of 2021 -

"The last solar week was about limitations, acceptance thereof or seeking distractions, and storytelling.

This solar week is about working with limited resources and recognizing the appropriate focus to make the best of what we have got so that we can fulfill our dream. This week brings a potential for the unexpected and it starts the new yearly cycle of 2021 (the Rave New Year).

At its best, 2021 is a year of relationship transformation, materialism and material success, leadership, education, and attracting like-minded people. At worst it is a year of victimization, rejection, exclusion, divorce, addiction, and discrimination."[116]


The last three weeks was a time of transition from last year to this new year and the over-all energetic invitation was one of recapitulation - a review of this past year so that it can be fully released and thereby allow for a full reception of the new cycle that is commencing now. This is a self-generated process and is not dependent upon the external. The process can support a personal rebirth and personal transformation when in turn can extend into the world. In other words the change that you want to see in the world begins with you!

December 18 2020 - IMPORTANT DATES -

13 January New Moon – Sun, Moon and Pluto in the Gate of Universal Truth

The Sun, Moon and Pluto are in the Gate of Universal Truth, this is a profound call of one soul to another, or of your own inner truth.

If you listen, it can change your life.

The Earth (62) is in a channel with Chiron (17). Pluto and Chiron have been interacting in this indirect way since January 2020, connecting us to the flow of events in such a way that spirit moves into the world through us.

This New Moon is teaching us we find a new kind of personal power anchored in our own truth. We find safety not in doing what authority or status figures tell us, but in releasing ourselves into the powerful flow of life, soul, spirit, connectedness. It’s a challenge to our ego but we find it’s worth it! Gate 17 is Flow, the home of synchronicity, a term coined by Carl Jung after experiencing the wonder of the I Ching. It means coincidences that have personal meaning for you, where the outer world meets your inner symbolic reality. This is our guide, not external rules, and the new way of being is why the Quantum Ring-Pass-Not is so important.

December 14, 2020 - For: Tuesday, December 15, 2020 -

"With the Moon in Capricorn today your attention focuses on determination, ambition, and integrity. As we are still under the influence of Mercury trine Mars, this is an excellent time to write or engage in a conversation that seeks an active result. Don’t start the conversation without knowing where you want it to lead. With the Moon in Capricorn maintain a serious focus on the desired outcome.

At 7:59 AM EST Venus sextile Saturn. Venus is in her final hours of being in Scorpio and Saturn is in its final days of Capricorn. There is a story ending here, a story about what we value and how we manifest, stabilize, and manage love, money, and resources. What have you learned in 2020 about what is truly important to you? How will you bring your new understanding of these values into the coming year? The next cycle begins with the conjunction of Venus to Saturn on February 6, 2021. You have nearly 2 months to finalize your preparations for a new cycle of understanding and stabilizing your deepest values.

At 11:21 AM EST Venus leaves Scorpio behind to enter Sagittarius. You may feel that you are coming out of a fog of intensity and fear as you enter into a new light of hope. Venus in Sagittarius values the higher understandings of all things. We expand our world view and learn to understand the world more deeply through travel, education, and cultural awareness. These things come into focus in the coming weeks. Venus remains in Sagittarius until January 8, 2021."[113]

December 1, 2020 - "The image of the cosmos as the face of God" and "the image of God within the form of the human being" -

“The phrase ‘man is made in the image and likeness of God’ is no longer an unquestioned proposition. It once evoked the image of the cosmos as the face of God. The likeness of God provoked a relationship to the creative powers in the human being. Let us take a page from the ancients, which described the image of God within the form of the human being. Rudolf Steiner reveals this relationship in his lecture series in Christiana (Oslo), Norway from June 2-12, 1912, entitled Man in the Light of Occultism, Theosophy, and Philosophy. At this time he imparted the correlation between the zodiacal signs and their glyphs to the human body parts. He referred to it as the Mysterium Magnum, the Great Mystery. Although Steiner did not expound upon the glyphs, it was a well-known fact among ancient astrologers and esotericists that the glyphs were not abstractions. They were drawn from initiates with clairvoyant perception. The down streaming light from the stars within a particular constellation imprinted upon the physical body. These sculpting etheric forces not only contained a creative capacity, they contained moral impulses as well. And with each sign of the zodiac there were spiritual hierarchical beings at work gifting the human being with senses to apprehend the divine creation.” -
Quote of William Bento’s article in Being Human (2015) - 
by William Bento, PhD[112]

November 29, 2020 -

“It is essential to realize that the human spirit is above an astrological chart, above the stars and planets and their influence, above Karma, above everything. The spirit is free and all-powerful. Whatever destiny the stars have decreed for you, there is one thing that you must know: far above destiny, in a higher, sublime, inaccessible region, reigns your spirit; and destiny can do nothing to injure your spirit.”[111]

October 28, 2020 - Spleen Hexagram/Gate 18 - Line 5 -

We enter Gate 28, Line 5 at 17:24 UT today, October 28, 2020.

"Gate 28 - 'Preponderance of the Great' - 'Gate of the Game Player' -
The Challenge is Life Itself -

The transitoriness of power and influence. The potential of intuition is to know in the now whether it is of value to struggle or not.

Line 5 - Treachery - The abuse of trust.

Exaltation: The manipulation of the collective, that while pitting one faction against the other, does not directly support or reject either. The intuitive capacity of the game player to provoke struggle amongst others.

Detriment: The breaking of alliances with trusted forces to align with more powerful forces and its attendant destabilization of the whole. The intuitive recognition in times of struggle to know when alliances must be broken and its destabilizing effect on others."[17]

October 25, 2020 - This Solar Week's Transits -

"This week sets the undertone for 2021, and it can determine the risks and routes to be taken for the coming year. ... This year, more than ever, it is SO important to not let other people decide th(e) risk for us and to follow our own convictions. If we are confused and don't know what to do, it is not good to let others pressure us into action. When we wait and sit with the confusion, at some point it will resolve. At some point things will start to make sense. But it requires that we stay with ourself and our process instead of giving in to other people who think we need their ordering although we don't, and who set us up for all kinds of things and confuse us more. You know best what's right for you. And if you don't know yet, that probably means that it's not yet time to act."[109]

A Top Theme: "Careful investigation and cautiously integrating only those who know their place and are safe to integrate ..."[108]

September 25, PM Report -

The Sun entered Gate 46, Line 6 at 13:29 UT today, September 25, 2020.

Hexagram Gate 46 is known as: "Pushing Upward" In The Human Design System it is called: "The Gate of the Determination of the Self" -
The Body is the Temple (of The Holy Spirit)

Good fortune that may be perceived as the result of serendipity but derives from effort and dedication. To accept that one is in the right place is deeply spiritual.

Left Angle Cross of Healing 2
Godhead - Christ
Line 6 - Integrity

Exaltation: The wisdom to secure one's identity through careful consideration of the restrictive potential of commitments. The determination to say no to restrictive commitments.(i)

Detriment: Deceiving oneself and others by overextending one's resources and eventually being in the position of having to break promises. A drive for success that will not say no, and will end up breaking promises.

(i) Comment: This Blog-writer testifies that the "wisdom" here is utterly priceless! He is eternally grateful to finally have this wisdom as his own Self-determination now!

September 25, 2020 - "26 Sep-2 Oct ䷑ Full Moon of nurturing through understanding, collective organization, new horizons and harvesting what we planted (for good or bad). Saturn direct: Influence through hard work and effort after a long period of restraint"[107]*

Comment: This Blog-writer is approaching ecstasy (with universal love as the radiance of his being) especially in light of the cosmic shift that is occurring now! His "Saturn ... of restraint" (activated via his Personality Earth at the 25th Hexagram with a Shadow frequency of Constriction) hopefully served him well as he finds greater freedom (and possibly greener pastures)!

"This solar week is about human rights, challenging bad authorities, judging and correcting what has been spoiled, service, collective organization, and opinions."[107]*

August 31, 2020 Sun Transit through Heart Gate 40 -

The Sun entered Gate 40, Line 4 at 12:37 UT today, August 31, 2020.

Gate 40 - Deliverance - Gate of Aloneness - The Power of the Will to Deliver
The point of transition between struggle and liberation. The survival of the community is dependent upon a sustained and strong will.

Right Angle Cross of Planning 3 ...
Line 4 - Organization -

Exaltation: The power to transform and the intuitive intellect to select and organize for the purpose of maintaining deliverance. The power of the ego when organized and active, to maintain separateness.

Detriment: An uncontrollable zeal that ignores the quality of support in preference for the quantity which in the long run may destabilize deliverance. The empowering of the ego through the capacity to organize others.[17]


This Blog-writer found the above "Exaltation" especially significant today! The "power to transform" is one's personal ability/willingness for their own transformational process.

In these times of mass homogenization, desecration, deep social conditioning and the like - "The purpose of maintaining deliverance" is a most worthy purpose to engage in! There are two more days for this transit. I hope that you will make use of an estimated 70% of the total neutrino force passing through you (that comes from our local Sun) for your own Deliverance!

August 11, 2020 - The Quote of The Week: " Things take time to be truly understood."[106]

August 5, 2020 - Lunar Nodes Shift -

"The nodes of the moon just left the two gates of the vessel of love (10 and 15). Over the coming months, even years, the nodes will transit through the throat gates, the gates of manifestation. That means we will collectively move towards manifestation and transformation."[105]

August 1, 2020 - PM Post -

The Sun is entering Gate 33, Line 4 at 06:42 UT August 2, 2020.

"Gate 33
Gate of Privacy
The Revelation of Secrets -

Active withdrawal and the transformation of a weak position into a strength. Wisdom and experience is shared through the voice of remembrance.

Line 4 - Dignity

A lack of turmoil in retreat.

Exaltation: The underlying faith in resurrection that turns retreat into an opportunity for renewal and regeneration. The healthy retreat for regeneration.

Detriment: Without the guiding light of resurrection, the inevitable dissolution that leads to degeneration. Forced to retreat, and unable to see its regenerative qualities."[17]

August 1, 2020 - This Weekend -

"INTEGRITY, POWER, KINDNESS – Saturday, August 1, 2020 -
It is unlikely that you will be able to avoid the challenges of the cultural moment we are living in this weekend. Everything is at a fevered pitch as Mercury opposes Pluto this morning.

Make sure you are clear about your personal integrity before engaging in powerful conversations today. The conversations you do have can be a great catalyst in the thinking of others. Listen to what is being said by those who are without integrity, notice as the communication spins out of control.

Power is in the balance. Power without integrity seeks to control and remove humanity from those weaker or poorer. Power with integrity seeks empowerment for humans of all stripes. Make sure that when you speak today it is from a place of honesty, principle, and incorruptibility(i).

Also remember kindness. No matter how deep the divide between yourself and others, true integrity(i) demands respect and kindness.

On a personal level, this is a day to spend time alone working on your individual goals. You can get a great deal accomplished today if you put your mind to it. This is a day to put pen to paper. Write a speech you’d like to give, a letter to the editor, or an outline to a book(ii) you want to write. Powerful accomplishment is possible today."[104]


(i) Incorruptibility aka true integrity is what "The First Agreement" is about when it says: "Be Impeccable With Your Word".

(ii) This Blog-writer has (in the past) expressed interest (at his other CureZone blogs) in writing a book. Now he realizes that would need to proceed in response to an invite/request/inquiry by another. A virtual library of books exists within him only waiting for the possibility of being called forth. Accepting his need "To Wait" as an essential aspect of his Human Design has freed him from self-imposed pressures "To Do."

July 23, 2020 - The Sun enters Gate 31, Line 1 at 10:51 UT on July 24, 2020. -

Gate 31 - "Gate of Influence" - "I Lead" -

The law of friction, whether active or passive, that engenders transference and thus influence. The natural expression of leadership.

Line 1 - Manifestation -
Influence cannot exist in a vacuum.

Exaltation: The Sun does not/cannot hold back its light and thus its influence on every life. The natural expression of leadership.

Detriment: The absorption of light, that in darkness can only promise manifestation. The unnatural expression of leadership.

Quarter of Civilization -
Theme: Purpose fulfilled through Form
Mystical Theme: Womb to Room

This Gate is part of the Channel of The Alpha, For 'Good' or 'Bad' a Design of Leadership, linking the Throat Center (Gate 31) to the G Center (Gate 7). Gate 31 is part of the Collective Understanding (Logic) Circuit with the keynote of sharing.

Gate 31 is designed to be influential. Collective leadership is collegial, not hierarchical. It provides the vision for a new direction and shows others how to achieve it, rather than doing it for them. The 31st gate manifests its potential for verbal influence through election. When money is the energy used to move a person into a position of power, instead of the cooperative will of the people, the Collective's overall ability to ensure humanity's future is easily perverted. Our voice through the 31st gate, "I lead," is not heard until backed by the energy of the majority. The people are the ones who must act on what our voice says.

The influence of our vision for society will not be transferred or felt without the Collective's energy moving it into the public realm. Our leadership must take into account the desires of our followers, and address the good of the whole. 'I lead' means influencing others, for good or for ill, by effectively transferring our vision for a new and test-worthy pattern to them to carry out. Without the presence of Gate 7, we may seem like just an empty voice.[17]

July 9, 2020 - Current Sun Transit in Hexagram/Root and Gene Key 53 (at the 4th line) -

We entered Gate 53, Line 4 at 17:12 UT today, July 9, 2020.

Gate 53 - Development - The Gate of Beginnings - Transition and Change -

Development as a structured progression that is both steadfast and enduring. The intensity to start something one moment will fall away in the next. Wait for clarity.

Line 4 - Assuredness -

Exaltation: The ability to maintain the strength of one's individuality in complex and often awkward situations, that ensure continued security and development. The pressure to maintain one's individuality in confused beginnings.(i)

Detriment: The persistent difficulty with embarrassing or awkward situations where normal emotional reactions may prove detrimental. Individual pressure for beginnings that creates awkward and sometimes embarrassing situations.


(i) This Blog-writer just had a direct experience of the exalted frequency of this line and then read this description with its "reward" of validation! In these very troubled times "validation" regarding the correctness of one's course will most assuredly increase in value!

June 28, 2020 -

"Jupiter and Pluto are still tightly linked, and backtracking along with Pallas Athena all sit at 23 degrees of Capricorn with Saturn
close by.

Jupiter-Pluto and Pallas Athena in such a tight stellium reflect the powerful agenda of reform and the new ideas that are being seeded.

Power and greed are associated with Jupiter-Pluto and the addition of Athena brings a new generation of influence, hopefully reflecting the ‘wisdom’ that Athena symbolizes. ...

The addition of so many other planets located in cardinal signs represent the pressing nature of this time; when a plan and a commitment, initiative and leadership are required.

As Pluto nears the end of its tenure in (Capicorn), we are witnessing a tremendous shake-up of the systems and structures and economic models that have underpinned the business of the world for so long.

In essence these last few years of Pluto’s journey through Capricorn are providing an opportunity to reshape and reorder our world, if we have the courage to face the demons lurking within.[103]*


If you happen to know the overall agenda of the current plan-demic then the "Power and greed" element represented by "Jupiter and Pluto" is easy to understand here. Interests behind the "plan-demic" definitely have their "plan and commitment" activated. The rest of the people (especially the "People") need ours plus an extra dose of "initiative and leadership."

Consider the Sabian Symbol for this "tight stellium":

Capricorn 24° (In the Sabian Symbols the degree of focus is advanced to the next higher degree because this system begins at 1 degree rather than at 0 as is typical in other astrological systems) ): A Woman Entering A Convent. -

KEYNOTE: Total commitment to a transcendent goal.

A convent is a place made available by a community which believes in the possibility of reaching a world-transcending state of consciousness. It is made available to individuals who may be variously motivated. To some it is an escape from the intolerable pressures of family and society; to others it represents the possibility of pursuing in peace a spiritual ideal to which the whole being aspires and is totally dedicated. The important point, in this phase of the cyclic process, is that the existence of a convent expresses another aspect of the relationship between the society (its religion and culture) and the individual. In the preceding symbol society rewarded the individual for a noble performance in its service; here society accepts the fact that beyond its daily normal patterns of behavior and commitments, another way of life exists which, in a higher sense, also has social value. In the old Hindu society dominated by a rigid caste system, the ideal embodied in the sannyasi — the wandering holy man or yogi meditating in a forest or a cave, who had entirely given up all that caste implied — was seen to be the very culmination of the social process.

In this fourth stage symbol we see the paradoxical nature of the social process operating more strongly than ever. This derives from the fact that man's nature contains in seed the possibility of overcoming and transcending itself in acts of complete denials and of surrender to a "higher" Law or quality of being. All spiritual techniques are indeed paradoxical. Rigid discipline conditions pure inner freedom. The final goal is the attainment of TRANSCENDENT SECURITY.

June 25, 2020 - The Sun Enters Hexagram/Gate 52, Line 3 at 22:20 UT on June 26, 2020 -

Human Design Root Gate 52
Keeping Still (Mountain)
Gate of Stillness - Temporary and self-imposed inaction for the benefit of assessment.
Concentration benefits from stillness and withdrawal. A passive rather than active energy.

Right Angle Cross of Service 2
Line 3 - Controls - External enforcement of inaction.

Exaltation: The ability by its very nature to understand restraint with the potential in acceptance, to use the period to redefine strategies. The energy for acceptance in inaction.

Detriment: A deep dissatisfaction with controls that disturb tranquillity, leads to emotional withdrawal and affects vision.(i) The pressure of restraint disturbs tranquillity.[102]


(i) This particular "Detriment" speaks to this Blog-writer in regards to recent communication is his shared housing that pointed to the need for vision. This Detriment description is directly pertinent to the condition of the shared household in regards to "vision." In light of all of this the current thinking of this writer is to address the: "... deep dissatisfaction with controls" and most especially any that "leads to emotional withdrawal."

May 11, 2020 - In Preparation For The Great Review -

“Reviewing our life helps us form, or re-form, our deep character when we need it most, as a final conscious preparation for the soul’s ultimate destination.”[101]

May 10, 2020 - "With this global pandemic, and its decree to ‘stay at home,’ we have all been given a rare opportunity to experience together a collective time of retreat and withdrawal. -

We did not ask for this, we may not want it, but this is being given to us for a good reason.

The wording we use to describe what we are experiencing determines the way we experience it. Thinking ‘lock down,’ even ’stay at home,’ gives us a fearful, anxious view of what is happening, while thinking in terms of the archetypal experience this whole thing represents gives us a much more holistic and hopeful way of understanding its purpose for us.

Running throughout world mythology, where deep truths reside, is a pattern of transformation made up of many archetypes — types of experiences necessary to complete this recurring pattern. Each archetype in this pattern has its own time and purpose. One of those timeless, universal archetypes, known variously as The Night Sea Journey, Joseph in the Well, the Temple Interior, and Jonah in the Belly of the Whale, comes into our lives to swallow us into the unknown whenever there is a need for us to slow down, leave the familiar behind, retreat from whatever we’re doing, turn inward, reassess everything we thought we knew, and refocus. It’s not just a matter of waiting out whatever storm it happens to be; it is much more a time of reevaluation and reappraisal. This is meant to be a time of quickening, of going inward for renewal, and for reminding us who we really are.

Experiencing this archetype together, as one human family facing the exact same challenge in the same way at the same time, is indeed rare. It may never have happened before in recorded history, the way it is happening globally now. The threshold guardians, gargoyles, and dragons that normally block the entrance to this realm have disappeared so we can all experience the higher silences within, together, all at once. That’s how late it is. ..."[100]*


The quote immediately above here underscores the three planetary retrogrades mentioned in the post of May 7th below. With Venus retrograde we can review, and allow for "reevaluation and reappraisal" of our values. The same principal can apply to the retrogrades of Jupiter and Saturn. Saturn issues can include self-discipline, responsibility, long time-view and authority,

May 9, 2020 - The Sun Enters Line 2 of Hexagram/Throat Gate 23 Sunday, May 10th at 5:15 PM Pacific -

Line 2 - "Self-defense -
The need to abandon tolerance when survival is threatened.

Exaltation: The principle of preservation at its most acute. The abandonment of tolerance when individual expression is threatened.

Detriment: Where Jupiter will strike out to preserve its integrity, the Moon is often satisfied with just protecting itself by fending off hostility. The defense of individual expression in the face of hostility."[17]


This Blog-writer wonders how many people may abandoned "tolerance" (especially during this transit) out of self-realizing that their "survival is threatened" by not working!

Earlier this day: "Truthfully and patiently working together to deal with Limitations" -

09 May 2020 13:17 UTC: Mercury in▽ ䷇ (Taurus) trine Pluto in ䷼ (Capricorn) -
"Problematic: our mouth being ahead of our brain and saying something before we really know what we want to say. Being afraid of losing our individuality and withdrawing from contact or collaboration – maybe because of confusing situations that previously might have been created by speaking before thinking. Losing our individuality in collaboration with others and blindly following the crowd, even if it means that many lose and few win at other people's cost, because we don't dare to make suggestions as a contribution to the common endeavor and direction.

Productive: honestly sharing and explaining our truth and our ideas. Acceptance of what is opens the path to make the best of what is, through collaboration and mutual empowerment. Finding efficient structures together in open discussion and interaction. Being patient with thinking things through, with talking things through, and with finding the right approaches."[98]*

May 7, 2020 - Venus, Jupiter and Saturn All Go Retrograde This New Solar Week! -
The New Solar Week Begins As of May 9, 00:58 UTC in Gate/Hexagram 23 ䷖ (Taurus) –
The Channel of Structuring -

"... This solar week is about expressing and explaining our vision and standing our ground when it comes to stepping onto that new path. People might think we are totally nuts, but what do they care. What interests you and what fulfills you is no one else's business but yours. You need to live with the consequences of your decisions - also with the consequences of those decisions, that lead you to an unfulfilled existence. You need to insist on living life the way that feels fulfilling to you, even if you might be the biggest oddball in your community. To the people in your current environment it might be incomprehensible, but if you start living yourself and if you start moving towards your authentic path and true desires, then you will meet those people who will love you as yourself and who will be inspired by your authentic freakishness, which is a rare good in today's world. Most people do not dare to be themselves, to follow their vision and to stand out of the crowd.

This week brings mental noise and pressure. It can bring the overwhelming urge to express ourselves. ...."[98]

May 3, 2020 - Sun Transit into The 2nd Gene Key/Hexagram -

"There is no civilization unless the feminine is honored above all. -

As the most archetypal feminine of all 64 Gene Keys, this 2nd Gene Key and the journey it represents contains a beautifully simple distillation of cosmic wisdom. … this Gene Key teaches us that there is a purpose to everything in existence. At no point in evolution has anything occurred that was not a part of a huge interconnected plan. This is the truth that resides in the feminine principal - it is the binding force for all the seemingly disparate cells and events within existence and in this sense it represents the great motherly embrace that pulls us all into a single unity. …”[77]

Gate 24: "The Return Gate of Rationalization"
Inspiration Must be Given a Rational Form

The natural and spontaneous process of transformation and renewal. Rationalizing is a risk and a test of the Spirit. There is no proof or experience, only knowing.

Line 3 - The addict -

The powerful attraction of regressive forms.

Exaltation: The ultimate though difficult triumph over regression. The difficult but possible task of overcoming irrationality.

Detriment: Addiction and regression legitimized by success. Irrationality maintained and legitimized by success.

The natural and spontaneous process of transformation and renewal. Rationalizing is a risk and a test of the Spirit. There is no proof or experience, only knowing.

Line 1 - The sin of omission -
Transformation that requires retrogressive periods before renewal can take place.

Exaltation: The will to triumph and in this case the faith that the end justifies the means. Inspiration that demands a reassessment of past thinking before a rational concept can be established.

Detriment: Self-delusion which unnaturally justifies periods of retrogression. Inspiration that leads to an irrational focus on what is past.

Theme: Purpose fulfilled through Mind -

This Gate is part of the Channel of Awareness, A Design of the Thinker, linking the Ajna Center (Gate 24) to the Head Center (Gate 61). Gate 24 is part of the Individual (Knowing) Circuit with the keynote of empowerment.

Gate 24's function is to take the unique inspiration of Gate 61 and turn it into a rational concept which can eventually be communicated to others. It returns to the same territory over and over again, pondering a thought it considers inspiring, reviewing it until it can be brought into form. Our mind cannot act on the inspiration, however, or prove it logically or through past experience. This is a natural and spontaneous process of transformation, mental renewal and unique knowing. One moment the knowing is not there and the next moment it is. To use our individual mind to our greatest advantage, we need to give ourselves time to return and review. This process can include watching or listening to something over and over again. If we let our mind transform organically, without attempting to control it, the resolution will often appear on its own. We will hear it in a moment of silence, like those aha's that pop into our mind in the middle of the night.

Gate 24 is the fear of ignorance, which is the mental anxiety that we will never know for certain, or that we won't be able to explain our knowing. If we try and make decisions with our mind, we will trigger this anxiety. Without Gate 61 we are under pressure to make not-self mental decisions to look for the next inspiring mystery to solve.[17]

April 22, 2020 - We enter Gate 27, Line 3 at 14:03 UT today, April 23, 2020.

Gate 27 - Nourishment - The Gate of Caring - Care for Oneself First

The enhancement of the quality and the substance through caring. The compassion and the energy to care for the weak.

Line 3 - Greed

The obsession with having much more than one needs.

Exaltation: Here, the psychological manifestation. The obsession and dependency on knowing what is hidden. The secret policeman. The power derived in having more than one needs, whether sexually, mentally, or materially.

Detriment: Mundane and wholly without redeeming value, greed, a lust that inevitably cripples and addicts. The lust for power to get more than one needs.[17]

April 21, 2020 - Beginning of the new solar week in (Sacral) gate 27 ䷚ (Taurus) -

New Moon of the Unexpected. Wild Self-Sufficiency, Independence and Autonomy. Sturdy Defense of Boundaries and Gray Rocking, if necessary. Being called to take a Risk, but listening within attentively and giving only if we truly have something to give

23 April 2020 02:25 UTC: NEW MOON in▲ ䷚ (Taurus)

This new moon brings the energy to be hurt or healed through bad or good organization. If the organization is good and of service to others, people might find their place or be put into their place and it might be ensured, that everyone get's what they need and is properly nurtured and cared for. If the organization is bad and does neglect to truly be of service, it pushes people to find more independence and autonomy. It pushes people to find more self-sufficiency and to distance themselves from institutions or individuals who do not serve them.

The energies also point to a strong tendency to accept people (followers, allies or private relationships) who later turn out to be very damaging. The mantra of this new moon is: I'm better off on my own, than to be with the wrong people.

Problematic: unsuccessful separation from what we might need to separate from, in order to outgrow expired life cycles and meet the challenges either alone or with the right people. Taking foolish risks and forging inauthentic alliances with the wrong people purely out of mental reasoning, which might bite back at us later when they turn out to be very imbalanced. Enraging wrong allies, who sap us empty, who deliberately step onto our toes for their own progress or who simply are incorrect, through openly demonstrated arrogance, which makes it harder to separate from them. Not being bold enough to naturally be respected and to respond with severity if nothing helps, but timidly asking for respect when our boundaries are severely overstepped.

Productive: knowing our boundaries. -

Not teaming up with those who will run over us, which is often indicated by them running over everything and everyone else, as well. Only forging alliances and taking risks if they truly feel purposeful and absolutely right. Separating from shocks, that we might have encountered and becoming self-sufficient. Finding our inner wildness and stopping to tolerate that people run us over. Social distancing 2.0. Separating through simple non-involvement and if necessary becoming as uninteresting as a gray rock(i) and providing no target for attack. Yet, being determined and forceful when it comes to defending our boundaries. Non-involvement and modesty is not to be confused with weakness.(ii) Rising above the shock and biting through problems alone or with the right people - with those who are truly correct for us and who know to serve and work together, rather than doing damage through working against each other. Turning our energy to service and investigating how we can serve others and humanity. This is a moon cycle where people get involved in new challenges, that really serve a purpose and that can open up uncharted territory and a greater vision.[97] (iii)


(i) This Blog-writer feels great affinity for "becoming as uninteresting as a gray rock" in a number of ways.
(ii) He finds this "Non-involvement and modesty is not to be confused with weakness" reassuring given his extensive "non-involvement" in some ways.
(iii) Encouraging to hear of "purpose ... that can open up uncharted territory and a greater vision"!

April 19, 2020 - Continuing with the Sun's Transit in Gate 3 - Now in Line 5 at 17:49 UT Today. -

Line 5 - Victimization -
When actions designed to overcome confusion alienate others.

Exaltation: The courage to stand by one's convictions. The unique energy of individuality to withstand confusion.

Detriment: The Earth in detriment, where victimization leads to appeasement and suffering. Confused energy which is dominated by the ordering power of others.[17]*


This Blog-writer apparently had a direct experience of this particular Hexagram Line - about 24 hours earlier!!

Also (noted a couple days ago and have been enjoying the truth of it ever since):
"God gave me Virgo and I love it!" Some of the characteristics of a Virgo type could possibly be challenging for some people however this Virgo type would venture to say "not as challenging as it can be for the Virgo native!" At least this has been the case for this "native" who only relatively recently realized just how Virgonian he really is! That realization came through viewing his natal chart in sidereal where the planetary placements are "corrected" back some degrees and thereby often relocating the planets in another sign. By realizing his natural-born planetary activations (of Sun, Saturn and Neptune) in Virgo (rather than in Libra) he was compelled to accept the truth of these activations with their "meticulous, detailed perfectionism" that is inherent with Virgo's influence. Now when he recognizes these behavioral inclinations he immediately embraces them (rather than resist them) which transforms his experience of these energies.

April 18, 2020 - We enter Gate 3, Line 4 at 18:47 UT today -

Gate 3
Difficulty at the Beginning
Gate of Ordering
Mutation is Generated & Empowered

The fundamental challenge of initiation is to transcend confusion and establish order. Individual expression that through example mutates others.

Right Angle Cross of Laws, Juxtaposition Cross of Mutation
Godhead - Janus
Line 4 - Charisma

Innate quality which attracts valued guidance.

Exaltation: Psychic attunement that magnetizes nurturing. A psychic energy which attracts nourishment and ensures ordering.

Detriment: Mars in detriment, where the demands of ego lead to rejection. Confused energy that needs nourishment but is generally rejected.[17]

April 17, 2020 - 3 Jupiter/Pluto Conjunctions Through 2020 -

"A major event occurs with Jupiter in Capricorn forming a conjunction to Pluto in Capricorn on April 4, 2020. This energy will continue through most of the year since the conjunction occurs a total of three times in what I call a triad sequence. The dates are April 4, 2020, June 30, 2020, and November 12, 2020. With all the events occurring in the world now, you feel a need for social connection. Open your lines of communication so you can reach out to people and know that you’re all there for each other."[96]*

April 16, 2020 - The Sun Transit is Now in the 3rd Hexagram - Corresponding with the 3rd Gene Key/Gate in the Sacral Center -

“No matter who or what we are, we’re subject to constant change. When we let that truth in, it’s very uncomfortable, at least in the beginning. This Gene Key is all about the process of letting change in. We have to let it into our heart, body, and soul. This is a contemplation on change.” – Richard Rudd[95]

April 15, 2020 - This Week's Quintessential Theme -

"... This is the time where big shifts take place, where new people might enter our lives and where things align for 2020. We are evaluating and adjusting the fantasy that we had. Now we are recognizing what and how it can come into form and how it can't. During this week, many things can shift by us stepping into the New, or at least by recognizing the New but not yet manifesting it. Things might have been stagnant for a while and suddenly they move, or unexpectedly everything shifts and turns out differently than we thought.

Change can be very confusing, especially if it came totally unexpected and now we are drifting in the emptiness that opened up and we don't know what to do and where to go. Sometimes it can feel so disorienting that we question our sanity. Things do get clearer with time, though. What we need is patience. Patience with life, but also patience with ourselves. If you are in that new situation and you don't know what to do, don't freak yourself out and know that there are currently many people in that same boat. This is the transition that many of us are going through.
Your path will unfold in the right timing. ..."[94]

April 7, 2020 - We enter Gate 51, Line 5 at 06:11 UT on April 8, 2020. -

Gate 51 is the gate of "The Arousing - The Gate of Shock" -
Arousing Empowers the Direction of Love -

This influence supports the ability to respond to disorder and shock through recognition and adaptation. It is the competitive power and drive to leap into the void first.

Godhead - Michael
Line 5 - Symmetry -

Exaltation: Perfected illumination that in grasping the nature of the shock, can transform its normal patterns into a symmetrical adaptation that rides the shock and avoids its devastation. The perfection of the warrior ego through instinctive adaptation.

Detriment: A tendency in seeking the core, to harmonize with one shock only to be overwhelmed by the next. The egoism to indulge in victory and lose vigilance.[17]

Comment: Read the above "Exaltation" at least once again.

April 3, 2020 - The Sun Enters Human Design Heart Gate 51, Line 1 at 10:40 UT on April 4, 2020. -
Gate 51 is called "The Arousing - The Gate of Shock" -
Arousing Empowers the Direction of Love -

The ability to respond to disorder and shock through recognition and adaptation. The competitive power and drive to leap into the void first.

Line 1 - Reference

The advantage of previous crisis experience.

Exaltation: The gift of re-examination that is the foundation of preparedness. The power of the ego conditioned by experience.

Detriment: A tendency to emotional withdrawal after a shock. The weakness of the ego in times of challenge.

Quarter of Initiation,
Theme: Purpose fulfilled through Mind

This Gate is part of the Channel of Initiation, A Design of Needing to be First, linking the Ego Center (Gate 51) with the G Center (Gate 25). Gate 51 is part of the Individual (Centering) Circuit with the keynote of empowerment.

Gate 51, the Gate of Shock, is the energy for Individual initiative. Backed by the ego's will and courage, it embodies the power to compete, driving us to be one step ahead of everybody, and to risk going where no one else has gone in order to find or create a place for ourselves. We are designed to withstand shock and to shock others, to move them out of the complacency of their safe cocoons and direct them toward personal transcendence and self love. Love for life itself, and the constant competition that comes with mastering the material world, arouses and empowers us. In opposition to the courage and will power that energizes us, however, is a potential for foolhardiness that endangers our vulnerable hearts, both physically and spiritually.

The secret to maintaining our heart's health is to center ourselves by attuning to our Strategy and Authority, and sense within when we have the will to engage in battle, and when we don't. This guidance will allow us to adapt to the nature of any shock or disorder confronting us, and give our heart the rest it needs in order to recuperate from our engagement with the world. Without Gate 25 we may find ourselves seeking or looking to the realm of spirit for guidance or direction.[17]

Transformation -

"The symbol for Mercury is formed by a solar disc O topped by a crescent moon, and by a plus sign + which is not only the symbol of the earth, but also that of addition in arithmetic. For alchemists, this symbol also represents the four elements – two masculine elements and two feminine elements. The Moon x represents water, the Sun (fire), the plus sign + earth, and Mercury itself represents air. So, the Sun and the Moon give birth to the child, Mercury, the philosopher’s stone, which for alchemists is the symbol of the true transformation of man."[93]*

April 2, 2020 -

"The last solar week was about tension, biting through problems and serving through solutions.

This solar week is about shock, challenges, competition and dealing with limitation in times of shock. It also is about mystic initiation and initiation towards who we are as individuals – through shock. This week can either bring utter foolishness and risking safety - or it can bring the survival awareness and the recognition of what is safe.

It brings a full moon that is about being fixed on survival intuition and finding ways to deal with the shock and with an uncertain future. This can be great when we trust our intuition, but it can be especially tricky and detrimental when we confuse our wants and egoic demands with our immediate survival needs – and then persuade others to do the same and to jump down the drain together with us.

If you postponed or forgot to do an important backup copy of some digital data, now might be a good time to do it, just to be on the safe side. ..."[92]

March 24, 2020 - New Hexagram/Gate/Gene Key Transit -

We enter Ajna Gate 17, Line 1 at 01:29 UT today, March 24, 2020.

Gate 17 is called: "Following." It is the "Gate of Opinions."

The ancient law that those who wish to rule must know how to serve. Organizing the formula for expression. Visually fixed on the pattern and projecting it into the future.

This gate is in the "Right Angle Cross of Service."

Line 1 - Openness -

Exaltation: The energy to sustain a broad spectrum of stimuli. The possibility of having many opinions.

Detriment: A tendency to limit openness to aesthetically pleasing stimuli. The possibility to limit opinions to what is pleasing.

Quarter of Initiation
Theme: Purpose fulfilled through Mind
Mystical Theme: The Witness Returns.

Gate 17

This Gate is part of the Channel of Acceptance, A Design of an Organizational Being, linking the Ajna Center (Gate 17) to the Throat Center (Gate 62). Gate 17 is part of the Collective Understanding (Logic) Circuit with the keynote of sharing.

Gate 17 looks for one concept or opinion among many that we can all trust - one that will survive both testing and criticism, and calm our fears about the future. Gate 17 is designed to structure an answer into a concept, a workable pattern or a possible solution in preparation for Gate 62's substantiating details. Up to this point in the logic process, our mind has taken a doubt about the future, formulated a potential solution, and now feels pressured to express it as an opinion. What it needs next is Gate 62's ability to translate the concept into language, to support it with facts and details, and present it to the public for their examination and analysis.

Our right eye takes in the world at a glance, seeing it as a collection of recognizable, visual patterns. If a pattern or an opinion cannot stand up to logic's scrutiny, it will be or should be rejected. Unfortunately, we cannot always translate our visual image or what we understand about it, into language. Without Gate 62, we will find ourselves looking for a name to represent our concepts, for facts to support our opinions, and for an effective means to communicate our suggestions. Mental anxiety for us arises out of the fear that no one will understand and value our input.[17]

March 3, 2020 -

"Each sign of the zodiac represents a stage in the slow transformation of nature throughout the year. The sun enters Aries at the beginning of spring, when life forces are in flood and buds are bursting open. This surge continues in Taurus and Gemini, as leaves and then flowers appear. With the constellation of Cancer comes summer, and seeds begin to form; with Leo fruit ripens, and when Virgo comes and the fruit is ripe, it is time for the harvest. After that comes autumn with the constellations of Libra, Scorpio and Sagittarius: the last fruits are gathered, leaves fall, and the vegetation dies and decomposes. Finally, Winter appears in the signs of Capricorn, Aquarius and Pisces: seeds sink into the ground where they die and are assimilated by the soil – but it is from this death that new seeds will be born, bringing a new resurgence, a new flowering."[91]*

March 20, 2020 (Pacific) - The Sun Entered Gate 25, Line 4 at 05:29 UT on March 21, 2020 -

(Further description of this gate posted below on "March 18th")

The nature of true innocence can be maintained regardless of circumstances.

Exaltation: The beauty of the rose in the garbage dump. Jupiter is also exalted. The highest principles even amongst the greatest decadence. The spiritual warrior; the innocence maintained regardless of circumstances. No polarity.

The Aquarius Moon is Void-of-Course All Day Today (Throughout "The United States of America") -

"When the Moon is in Aquarius you may want to focus on your friends and social connections. In some cases, you’ll wonder what you ever had in common with some of these people. In other instances, you’ll understand why you value some of these relationships. After a while, you may feel that you need to let go of some of your social obligations. If you do, it’ll be because those obligations no longer are of value to you."[90]*

March 18, 2020 - Sun Transit into the 25th Hexagram/Gate/Gene Key -

We enter Gate 25, Line 1 at 09:35 UT today, March 18, 2020.

Gate 25 - "Innocence - Gate of the Spirit of the Self"
The Spiritual Warrior

The perfection of action through uncontrived and spontaneous nature. To love everything equally. Triumph and survival enrich the spirit and result in the wonder of being.

Right Angle Cross of the Vessel of Love
Godhead - Michael
Line 1 - Selflessness

Motiveless action.

Exaltation: The universalization of activity. Psychic attunement that is its own reward. The potential for centering through attunement to challenges.

Detriment: A tendency to publicize one's selflessness. The insecurity of the Self manifested in times of challenge.

Theme: Purpose fulfilled through Mind
Gate 25

This Gate is part of the Channel of Initiation, A Design of Needing to be First, linking the G Center (Gate 25) to the Ego Center (Gate 51). Gate 25 is part of the Individual (Centering) Circuit with the keynote of empowerment.

The love of Gate 25 flows out of fully accepting and living surrendered to one's form. A gate of the higher self, its pivotal role is to turn people toward individuation. Our innocence is not designed to bring love into the world in any specific way, but rather to love without discrimination. Those who carry this gate hold the potential, and empower others with the potential, to love life and everything in it equally. A flower can be loved as profoundly as a human.

This quality of love is often projected as cool or cold but is neither. The mystical potential of this love is transcendent and universal, and our spirit innocence is always being tested. We have the capacity to meet these initiations from life like a spiritual warrior, fired up and ready to compete for our spirit (our individuality) no matter what the circumstance. Then, when the warrior or "fool" of Gate 51 prods us to leap into the void, or when we meet life's initiating challenges, we will be able to land on our feet and deepen our innocence into a wisdom that can empower others on their own journey. We may emerge a bit wounded from such initiations, but our ultimate triumph and survival enriches our spirit and the spirit of those around us. The result is that we are alive with the wonder, the love, of being.

The Daily View reflects the impact the Sun (70% of the neutrino influence) is having on humanity as it moves through the Gates and Lines of the Mandala. Transits are potentials that you can witness in others and the world around you, and, if correct for you, as you follow your individual Strategy and Authority, may become a part of your experience as well.[89]

February 27, 2020 - "An Action Packed" Spring Equinox -

"... Mars and Jupiter are the key players at this Equinox. Their conjunction, separated by only 9 minutes of arc, will be visible in the morning sky with Saturn close by. This is an action packed Equinox with a powerful new agenda being rolled out.

The Sun is joined by Chiron and the Black Moon, suggesting that this continues to be a time of healing and to express gratitude for our gifts. ..."[87]

February 16, 2020 - Mars Enters Capricorn - at 3:33 AM Pacific! -

"You may notice a considerable change on this astrologically significant day. The morning sees Mars entering the realm of Capricorn where he will encounter Jupiter, Pluto, and Saturn over the coming six weeks.

Mars, the planet of action has been in Sagittarius, the sign of exploration since January 3, 2020. Now as he joins the crew (Jupiter, Pluto, Saturn) in the buttoned-up Cardinal Earth sign of Capricorn things get serious. (LOL) Your actions become more deliberate as you are more intent in consideration of the future and of the consequences of your actions.(i)

You may be slow to anger but can become cold and even cruel if frustrated. Over the coming weeks, it will serve you well to find a way to keep your heart soft and open. Vulnerability (within the context of safe relationships)(ii) is a skill worth developing with Mars in Capricorn."[85]


(i) Re: "more intent in consideration of the future" This has very suddenly become true for this Blog-writer as of this evening!
(ii) Re: "a skill worth developing" can be very highly supported in "Dyads" by using the "Relating Exercises" and/or the "Janus Dyad."

"... this Mercury retrograde is similar to the last one by the end of 2019. Both are about building structures and frameworks of being and working together. Now we are one step further than in the last retrograde, yet doubt sneaks in. It is important to recognize the value of doubt and questions. If we never ask questions, we never pay attention to the options and to different approaches of doing things. We just cling to one fixed answer, reardless whether this might be the right one or not. This answer might turn out to fail. If we ask some questions beforehand, though, of course things still can fail, but we minimize the risk by double-checking and optimizing things right from the beginning. Often, only through giving place to questions and doubts, can they be resolved. Especially when we are working with limitations, which is the current transit field and collective energy, it can be vital to discuss our doubts with others and to hear another person's perspective in order to not fall into despair when it gets tough.

One month ahead, Mercury will go direct in (Human Design's Race Mandala - Hexagon) gate 30.4, where the Sun is right now, which can bring burnout if we don't pace ourselves and our progress realistically. As ... in last week's report, we will be dealing with limitations from now on, and there will be certain windows in time when that limitation will be able to be transcended. It is essential to accept divine timing(iii) and to calmly face the tasks that lie ahead of us with perseverance."[86]*


(iii) Re: "It is essential to accept divine timing" This Blog-writer can testify (all the more) to the truth of this now! The universal orchestration of "divine timing" is fully able to super-exceed the best plans of any human individual and exponentially by untold orders!

February 13, 2020 - Now I See my "IC"! -

"The IC or Nadir is associated with our home, how we nurture ourselves and how we re-charge. This is a particularly important point for introverts.

Any planet conjunct the IC, ideally less than 2 degrees before and no more than 6 degrees after the IC, is thought to be directly tied into our sense of emotional security. It affects how we express our energies within our private lives - to our family members, to our home base, and close friends.

This is a planet whose influence is 'hidden' from direct view, but likely known to those who know us intimately. Any planet near the IC colors who are intimately to those close to us.

It should also be noted that sometimes the IC and the planets near it suggest the influence of the mother, while the planets near the MC indicate the influence of the father. Either way, the planets near the IC often reflect how we feel about our childhood and our connection to our personal and collective past.

Sometimes it may feel like we have different personalities that come out within different realms in our lives. The four points on the chart (Ascendant, IC, Descendant, and MC) reflect four different arenas of our personality and any planets that fall near these color their expression. ..."[84]*

February 10, 2020 - Words of Wisdom Regrading the Forthcoming Mercury Retrograde -

"A Simple Plan to Manage Mercury Retrograde -

MERCURY turns Retrograde (13 degrees Pisces) on Sunday, February 16, 2020, at 7:54 PM Eastern time. Mercury will return to direct motion on March 9, 2020.

Everywhere I turn these past few days someone is asking me (with trepidation and a touch of fear in their eyes) is Mercury turning retrograde AGAIN??

There is so much unnecessary fear and misinformation around Mercury’s retrograde cycles. Let’s keep this very simple.

#1. Don’t be afraid, worried, or concerned -

Yes, that is easier said than done, but please forget all the terrible things you have ever heard about Mercury retrograde. There are no astrological conditions that we need to block ourselves from in fear. We simply must learn how to make the best use of the planetary cycles as we encounter them. I have come to deeply appreciate Mercury’s retrograde cycle. These are wonderful times to catch up on what has been left undone and are a true gift if we learn how to use them.

#2. Get a notebook and a pen and make a list of everything that you began but have NOT completed since November 20, 2019 -

Start with a clean sheet of paper, quiet your mind and think back over the past few months. On November 20th Mercury turned direct at 11 degrees Scorpio. Since then, Mercury has zipped through the remainder of Scorpio, Sagittarius, Capricorn, Aquarius and well into Pisces where it now turns retrograde at 13 degrees. Think about what you have been doing since late November. Look through calendars and notebooks to find reminders of what you have been thinking about and working on since then. Now, make a list of all the things that you have begun but not completed. Dig deep; there are probably more things than you are aware of. Consider that appointment you have been meaning to make? And how about the project that you finally tucked into a drawer because you couldn’t find the time to complete it? You probably have all sorts of paperwork and emails that have fallen through the cracks. You can finish that 500-page novel you began a month ago and gave up on as life took over.

#3. Get to work -

Once you have this list, it is easy to prepare the perfect plan for the next three+ weeks (Mercury turns direct on March 9, 2020. Get to work completing the things on this list. Nothing more, nothing less. Our lives are so busy; we zip from one project to another, from one communication to another. We never seem to have the time to slow down and carefully complete the tasks that we have begun. Mercury retrograde brings us the gift of time to wrap up loose ends.

#4. Don’t be tempted to start new projects, begin new commitments, new relationships, or new jobs -

Don’t buy the new car, the new computer, or begin working with new software that has any kind of a learning curve.

Mercury is the time for clean up only. Don’t move forward until Mercury turns direct on March 9, 2020.

If you follow these simple steps, you will be amazed at how much you can accomplish during this 3 week period. Good Luck and Get to Work!

These are guidelines; not Rules. There are things that can not be put off. Please be practical and do what must be done."[83]

February 7, 2020 - Current Neutrino Weather Conditioning -

We enter Gate 49, Line 1 at 8:49 Pacific today, February 8, 2020.

Gate 49 - Revolution - Gate of Rejection -
Potentially Aware ...

Ideally the transformation of forms based on the highest principles and not simply for power. Knowing what and who is needed or not for the community.

Right Angle Cross of Explanation

Line 1 - The law of necessity -

Revolution has no support unless it is perceived as necessary.

Exaltation: The understanding and application of this law to maximize expansion of support and thereby ensure viability. The awareness that the potential of a principle is based on it being accepted as viable.

Detriment: The misuse of influence, to insist that necessity can be created out of action. The 'Helter Skelter' syndrome. To commit acts of disorder as proof that disorder exists. Over-sensitivity to rejection that can turn a principle into a crusade.

Theme: Purpose fulfilled through Mind

Gate 49 -

This Gate is part of the Channel of Synthesis, A Design of Being Sensitive, linking the Solar Plexus Center (Gate 49) with the Root Center (Gate 19). Gate 49 is part of the Tribal (Ego) Circuit with the keynote of support.

The principles of acceptance and rejection, marriage and divorce, and ultimately revolution, are the direct result of living with Tribal hierarchies influenced by the emotional wave. Because Gate 49 places us at the top of one of these hierarchies, we feel a need to be obeyed. This translates into us exerting the power to accept or reject a person, or their request for access to our resources, or their appeal to initiate a revolution on their own or someone else's behalf. Our sensitivity or insensitivity towards other people (and animals) and their specific needs is based on a resonance with our own principles. In other words, the people we accept into our circle are those willing to stand by us and support our principles; the rest we will be inclined to reject. Ours is a social agenda for change and reformation. It is particularly focused on food and food distribution; people who have enough to eat don't need to go to war. Revolution is either avoided by filling needs, or entered into as a necessary evil and last resort. We might be the one whose acceptance or rejection influences which road is taken to satisfy the needy party. The things that make us nervous are the fear of rejection and the consequences of unpredictability.[17]

February 6, 2020 - Mercury Retrogradein Pisces -

"The first retrograde of 2020 is in Pisces. The shadow, (in effect now) the opposite sign is Virgo, which suggests that ideas, hopes and expectations may be held back by details and effort not done."[82]*

January 30, 2020 -

"This month, (February) Venus, Black Moon and Chiron unite in Aries, revealing our emotional wounds and providing opportunities for healing with expressions of love. Mercury will retrograde in Pisces, giving us pause to look deeper within and connect with our feelings."[81]

"Cosmos and Psyche" is one of this Blog-writer's all time favorite books, a favorite not only among the astrological and psychological kind but of other kinds as well. The very recent quadruple conjunction involving Saturn and Uranus inspired the writer to look further into the nature of Uranus and he is so glad he did with a specific inspiration to review Richard Tarnas who wrote:

"I have taken more time here in explicating the case of Uranus in the midst of these otherwise brief summaries of the planetary meanings because it was my early study of this planet and the significant discrepancies between its given mythological name and its subsequently observed archetypal associations that set in motion many of the conceptual clarifications and research directions that formed the background of Cosmos and Psyche. The parallels with the mythic figure of Prometheus were sufficiently suggestive that I began a systematic examination of Uranus in natal charts, in transits, and in historical cycles to see whether such an archetypal identification or association deepened my understanding of the relevant phenomena. The parallels also suggested to me the importance of carefully thinking through the relationship between planets and archetypes, between the given mythological names and the observed astrological meanings, and, more generally, between the empirical evidence of synchronistic correlations and an archetypal dimension of being to which the correlations appeared to point."[80]


This writer contemplates the possibility that the meeting of the minds that occurred in 1776 (approximately five years prior to the discovery of Uranus) had a “Master Minding” effect upon the collective psyche of humankind and that subsequently prepared the way in the collective consciousness for the external discovery of Uranus. This writer says “external discovery” in realizing that a quintessential expression of “Prometheus Unbound” was achieved on July 4, 1776 when The Declaration of Independence was initially published.

January 12, 2020 - The Conjunction of a "Lifetime" is Happening Right Now! -

"Begin Building A NEW FOUNDATION —

Finally, we come to the exact conjunction of Saturn to Pluto, exact at 11:59 AM EST. This begins a new cycle of facing the reality of power. Think about that. Look for it in your life and watch the news channel to see it playing out in the world.

Today closes out a cycle that began in the Fall of 1982 the last time Saturn and Pluto came together. The cycle beginning now will end the next time they come together in 2053.

Think of this as an abscess that has been building and festering for many months. An abscess has to burst before it can be scrubbed clean to heal. This is the job as we reach the end of this cycle and begin the new.

Focus on patience and determination. Work hard and face the serious consequences of your past and current choices. Your efforts and concentration will naturally focus on a particular area of your life.

Consider what you need to let go of to strengthen your resolve and attention where it is most needed. Clarity will come into focus as you pay attention in the coming days and weeks.

Don’t try to resist the powerful forces at play. Give up and release what you must to pave the way forward into your future.

It is inevitable that something must be released for something new to begin.

Don’t look for shortcuts, dig deeply for the determination and resolve required. This is a long process beginning now. Your life is a serious business, begin the slow process of building a strong foundation for your future now."[78]


"Lifetime" can be measured in any number of ways as cycles including as seven-year cycles. People who were born since "the last time Saturn and Pluto came together in the Fall of 1982" are experiencing this conjunction as a once in their lifetime so far. However this time is truly a once ever event for several reasons. Firstly it occurs in a specific astrological sign (Capricorn). Secondly it occurs in a specific sequence of degrees as identified in the 61st hexagram gate that is known as "Inner truth." Add to that the joining in of Mercury and the Sun all conjunct as well! Who can say whether that has ever occurred before? It most certainly adds up to a once-in-a-lifetime event of unprecedented magnitudes!

Also see the three Sabian Symbols for the three degrees that are now activated with this conjunction[79]

January 11, 2020 - The "Current World Theme" from The Gene Keys Perspective -

Featuring: The spectrum of consciousness in Gene Key 61: From Psychosis to Inspiration to Sanctity -

"Each plane of being has a living geometry. When the perfect geometry of the higher planes descends, even for a moment, it instantaneously aligns the geometry of all the lower subtle bodies, like iron filings following a magnet. This is how Christ performed his miracles; that higher geometry worked through his aura on all those present in his field. Many psychotics came to him, people disturbed by so-called demons. When they say that he cast out the demons, it means that the living perfect geometry of truth realigned all those subtle layers, so that those minds were instantly re-ordered.

The mind is not what we think it is, for it exists on its own plane of being, the mental plane. That plane attracts and repels thought forms. The purer the thought form, the more perfect its geometry in your aura, and the less pure the thought form, the more disturbing its geometry is.

The music of selfishness is catastrophic in your aura, whereas the music of sanctity is so refined and pure that it changes everything in your environment…"[77]

-Excerpt from the 64 Ways


The above description could be a potentially awesome occurrence/observation if it were just the Sun in transit in this Gene Key - however - now this awesomeness is magnificently magnified with the addition of Mercury, Saturn and Pluto all conjunct with the Sun and thus forming a grand stellium that may be worthy of comparison to the "Star of Bethlehem" that guided the Magi to the nativity of Jesus (the celebration of which many of us just acknowledged several days ago on January 6th).

January 10, 2020 - New Hexagram Transit Gate -

We enter Gate 61, Line 1 at 12:56 UT on January 11, 2020.

"Gate 61: Inner Truth - Gate of Mystery
The Potential of Inner Truth is Silence
The awareness of universal underlying principles. The pressure to know the absolute truth, the mysteries of life, and to resolve the individual tension to know.

Line 1 - Occult knowledge

Exaltation: A natural psychic awareness that empowers principles of universalization. The pressure to know the mysteries through esoterics.

Detriment: Where a reliance on secret knowledge increasingly demands ascetic withdrawal and leads eventually to obscurity. Where the pressure to know the mysteries can be so strong that one can be eventually incapable of handling exoteric realities.

Theme: Purpose fulfilled through Transformation

This Gate is part of 'the Channel of Awareness, A Design of the Thinker', linking the Head Center (Gate 61) with the Ajna Center (Gate 24). Gate 61 is part of the Individual (Knowing) Circuit with the keynote of empowerment.

Gate 61 is the pressure to know, to unravel the mystery, and to inspire with unique moments of absolute recognition. This knowing moves us toward deeper levels of self-acceptance where we can embrace what distinguishes us from others. We love to spend time musing, and mentally delving into the unknown. When we 'know' that we have a unique insight, and wait for the right time to express it, we feel liberated. When our knowing inspires, empowers, or mutates others, we feel empowered. Compared to the Collective mind, which is either focused on what happened in the past or predicting what may happen in the future, our Individual mind yearns for silence now, for all the voices and dialogue to stop. If we give in to the intense pressure, and let the unknown haunt us, our inspiration can become confused by delusion, leading to deep uncertainty and anxiety. The secret is to enjoy our thoughts and let our inner knowing, our inner truth, reveal itself in its own unique timing. Without Gate 24 we are not designed to solve the mystery, but simply to enjoy it.

The Daily View reflects the impact the Sun (70% of the neutrino influence) is having on humanity as it moves through the Gates and Lines of the Mandala. Transits are potentials that you can witness in others and the world around you ..."[17]

Comment: Rudolf Steiner had this gate defined as well as the whole channel connecting his Crown/Head center with his Ajna center. Both his Personality and Design Lunar North Nodes gave him a double activation in 61.

When this blog-writer read "Occult knowledge" in the email announcing this transit he immediately thought of Steiner and was inspired to review his Human Design BodyGraph and so glad he did as the BodyGraph verified his intuition! However Steiner's planetary activations here are actually at Lines 2 and 3. The themes for those lines are: "Natural Brilliance" and "Interdependence" - respectively. Those descriptions definitely characterize the work of Steiner yet Line 1 still seems pertinent as well. There is a possibility that Steiner had another (hidden) activation at Line 1.

January 11, 2020 - And Nietzsche's Gate 61

“I would only believe in a God that knew how to dance.
And when I saw my devil, I found him serious, thorough, profound, solemn: he was the spirit of gravity, - through him all things fall.
Not by wrath, but by laughter do we slay. Come, let us slay the spirit of gravity!
I learned to walk; since then have I let myself run. I learned to fly; since then I don't want to be pushed in the first place in order to move ahead.
Now I am light, now I fly, now I see myself beneath myself, now a God dances through me.
Thus spoke Zarathustra.” - Friedrich Nietzsche (unconscious Earth in 61.4, Incarnation Cross of Maya)[75]

Comment: The above quote comes from an article that (IMO) presents a most definitive perspective on the conjunction that is now occurring between Saturn and Pluto and therefore a must read!

Begins with: "an awakening Full Moon that highlights the really enormous global changes that are starting to impact all facets of life."[74]

December 26, 2019 - A Solar Eclipse –

"Today marks an important shifting point as we reach a Full Solar Eclipse at 4° Capricorn at 12:13 AM EST. This Eclipse brings a positive tone to the days and weeks ahead, as it conjuncts Jupiter and trines Uranus, suggesting positivity.

A Solar Eclipse is a supercharged New Moon. The energy with which you infuse this cycle will impact the next 6 months culminating at the Capricorn Full Moon on July 4, 2020."[73]

Christmas 2019 - The New Solar Week and Beyond! -

"... This week opens a major, major, major moon cycle. This coming moon cycle from the end of December to the end of January brings two eclipses, the beginning of the calendar year and the energetic beginning of the new yearly cycle. Eclipses are special new moons and full moons that highly affect our environment and our developmental path. They will open doorways, that will stay open for passage far into 2020. This moon cycle opens the door for big new beginnings and service to humanity, especially through collaborative efforts."[72]

December 21, 2019 - Winter Solstice -

"Today marks an important and intense weekend. The Moon entered Scorpio at 7:57 AM EST. You will not be in the mood for shallow connections or small talk. Seek out friends who can join you in excavating deep emotional depths.

By the end of the day, the Sun will have entered Capricorn. Here in the Northern Hemisphere, now is the Winter Solstice, the shortest day of the year. ...

The Solstice comes at the moment the Sun enters Capricorn at 11:19 PM EST where it will remain until January 20, 2020.

0° Capricorn is one of the four most potent points of the zodiac. The next 24 hours may bring some important public issues to light. While the Sun is in Capricorn, we determine to face reality, our ambitions, and our responsibilities. In Capricorn, we seek tangible results. It is time to take on the administrative duties of a long term project. Working hard toward long-term goals is an important component of Capricorn. Set an appointment on your schedule to develop your personal goals for 2020."[71]

December 20, 2019 -

"...globally we are in transition. We are in a time of endings and letting go. The energy of a massive structural reset and huge new beginnings will be there from January onward. Everything has its proper timing. Understanding frees the mind."[70]

11:11, 2019 -

"Your birth was precisely on time, and at the right time in history, in the right culture, everything, to further your soul’s course. You were born at the Divinely appointed time.

There is an order, a star map, for your life. For the soul, everything is always all right because we all have the same ultimate destination – to awaken to our divine nature and return to the One who created us."[67]


Does the above quote resonate with you? ......... If so this blog is created with you in mind.

The author of the above quote goes on to say:
- "Astrology is a Gift from the Divine -

I believe that astrology is a gift given to us by the Divine. Astrology is a study of the mind of the Divine and is meant to uplift, educate and bring us closer to the light. The Divine has not left us alone, but speaks to us all the time in many ways; and while NOT meant to replace prayer or meditation, astrology is one of the clearest, personal, and detailed ways that the Divine talks to us."

November 14, 2019 - Continuing with " a Gift from the Divine." -

Astrology is not only a "Gift from the Divine" it is a gift that keeps on giving! Tremendous insights and extensions of astrology has occurred since the discovery of Uranus in the late 1700s. (Uranus is considered an archetypal representative of astrology.) 200 years later what were "insights" exploded into a super nova of revelation when in 1987 humanity was gifted with the Human Design Revelation as it was transmitted to Alan Robert Krakow who later emerged as Ra Uru Hu after his nine-day intensive with "The Voice." Although the Human Design System is not presented as astrology it nevertheless is a synthesis that includes a number of major key astrological elements and sufficiently so that virtually any astrologer could extend many astrological perspectives from all that Human Design offers. Then in 2009 we began receiving the gift of Gene Keys which, like Human Design, is not necessarily astrology yet the Holographic profile it offers is generated very much like a Human Design BodyGraph that is generated with software that is activated with the natal data of an individual for the moment or their nativity.

Now the world is witnessing an impeachment investigation that has a controversial start - apparently with "The Speaker" having "jumped the gun" for this process that by Law requires a collective procedure by the whole House of representatives rather than any individual or "groups" less than the "House." As with anything that can come with a date and "time stamp" - there are astrological perspectives on this occurrence. Following is a snapshot of one of them:

"... The Speaker opened the vote at 11:22 AM EDT, the magic number of 218 for passage was reached at 11:25, and the vote officially called at 11:29 AM. As voting began, an exact Jupiter/Moon conjunction at 23 Sagittarius aligned exactly with the Ascendant, symbolizing opening the political process (Jupiter) to public view (Moon). The Moon is void, perhaps indicating that this process, though successful in the House, will go nowhere in the Senate, leading to the Void Moon’s typical result of 'no action taken.'”[69]

December 15, 2019 - We enter Gate 11, Line 2 at 12:32 Pacific today, December 15, 2019.

Gate 11 is known as "Peace - The Gate of Ideas" -
This is "a harmonic condition in the individual or society that permits assessment before renewed action."

Ideas are Stimulation for Reflection.

Ideas are captured over time. One who seeks stimulation.

This gate is one of four that form the: "Right Angle Cross of Eden 4" with "Godhead - Prometheus."

Line 2 - Rigour

This Blog-writer was inspired to post this particular transit upon reading:
"The recognition that without vigilance and risk, peace can lead to stagnation and collapse."

He then checked the Human Design BodyGraphs of two "fellow gardeners" who have started making presentations in regards to peace on Earth and discovered that one presenter has this gate activated with their Design Earth as a "hanging gate" and the other presenter doesn't have activations in this gate or the channel. Therefore together they have this as an unconscious hanging gate.

For today and/or for anyone with an activation at Line 2:

"Exaltation: The imagination applied to ensuring the understanding of achieved values. A sense of boredom overcome through the imagination.

Detriment: The resorting to factionalism to satisfy the ego's need for action. Provoking with ideas to escape boredom."

The rest of this description is applicable to anyone with this gate activation:

Quarter of Mutation, the Realm of Sirius
Theme: Purpose fulfilled through Transformation
Mystical Theme: Accepting Death

This Gate is part of the Channel of Curiosity, The Design of the Searcher, linking the Ajna Center (Gate 11) to the Throat Center (Gate 56). Gate 11 is part of the Collective Sensing (Abstract) Circuit with the keynote of sharing.

Ideas are concepts designed to express what has been sensed. In Gate 11, possibilities are conceptualized into ideas. These ideas are not prescriptions for action because ideas come and go. At this point in the abstract process, we are given a quiet moment for assessment to sort out what has been remembered over the ups and downs of the experiential process. We are prone to remembering what we really liked about what we saw, while leaving the rest out. This is how ideas become ideals, then beliefs and finally belief systems over time. Those who carry this gate seek the ideas of others to stimulate their own reflections, and enjoy stimulating others with their ideas, but not indiscriminately. Ideas reach the Throat Center as verbal expressions, not as manifestations of action, and they are designed simply to be reflected upon. Trying to solve our life's dilemmas with our own ideas will lead to frustration, further crises and confusion. We can take great delight, however, in savoring the stimulating details of past moments for their own sake. Without Gate 56 we are under pressure to tell our stories, and may do so impulsively without waiting for the right timing.

The above "reflects the impact the Sun (70% of the neutrino influence) is having on humanity as it moves through the Gates and Lines of the Mandala. Transits are potentials that you can witness in others and the world around you, and, if correct for you, as you follow your individual (Design), may become a part of your experience as well."[17]

October 29, 2019 - Current Sun Transit in Spleen Hexagram/Gate 28 -

Preponderance of the Great
Gate of the Game Player
The Challenge is Life Itself

The transitoriness of power and influence. The potential of intuition is to know in the now whether it is of value to struggle or not.

Line 5 - Treachery- the abuse of trust.

Exaltation: The manipulation of the collective, that while pitting one faction against the other, does not directly support or reject either. The intuitive capacity of the game player to provoke struggle amongst others.

Detriment: The breaking of alliances with trusted forces to align with more powerful forces and its attendant destabilization of the whole. The intuitive recognition in times of struggle to know when alliances must be broken and its destabilizing effect on others.[17]

October 25, 2019 - From Transparent matrix -

Dedication to our inner truth and to knowing the unknown
24 October 2019 23:36 UTC: Pluto enters (Human Design) Gate 61 the 3rd time ....
25 October 2019 9:52 UTC: Venus in 43.3 ... (Scorpio) sextile Pluto in 61.1 ... (Capricorn)
Problematic: Fearing to be rejected when we speak up and maybe even being rejected when we speak from hypocrisy and plain moodiness. Abandoning our inner truth and holding back our knowing. Being afraid that we might be wrong or that we might not have what it takes. Avoiding necessary confrontation.

On the other side: being incautious and not waiting for the proper moment when we really know what to say. Acting without proper timing before we are ready and structured in our knowing. Uncoordinated action and wasting energy without having clarity and without listening within. This can be blind an totally uncoordinated action so succeed in a work project. It can be trying to bump through blockages by sheer force, that aren't meant to be torn down yet and that require patience to resolve. It can be buying someone expensive things to be included back without having the proper attitude and relationship approach.

Tackling obstacles that need to be tackled is probably going to be productive, but it also is important to really consider the perspective of the other parties involved.

Surrendering to the process of being patient with finding truth and a new order. What helps is the realization that things do take time to progress.

Productive: Sticking to our unique mental process, even if it might look weird to others. Speaking our truth and being able to withstand rejection and condemnation. Speaking and acting on our values in ways that aren't offensive, yet determined. Taking action and confronting obstacles head-on – once it truly feels right.

September 30, 2019 - Sun Transit in Hexagram/Gate 18 -

We enter Gate 18, Line 5 at 02:23 UT today, October 1, 2019 - "Work on what has been spoilt." -

Gate of Correction
Essential Learning

The vigilance and determination to uphold and defend basic and fundamental human rights. Dissatisfaction fuels the life-long process of correcting and improving.

Godhead - Christ
Line 5 - Therapy
The strength to recognize a problem and to accept that it is beyond one's power to solve it alone.

Exaltation: The wisdom to both seek and provide guidance. The potential for correction and judgment through relationships.

Detriment: The mental patient. Chronic instability and potential madness. Where relationships cannot assist in correction the potential of mental instability.[17]


Interesting that the one in mind in the post of the 27th has this line activated in their Human Design by their Personality Saturn and that they apparently "provide guidance" however who knows what "...potential for correction and judgment" that might have.

September 27, 2019 -

Realized a new insight last night regarding someone I know that subsequently raised the possibility of what is described in the following astrological forecast.

"...October is a month that slowly leads up to separating oneself and cutting people off in order to fight for indiviual purpose, if necessary alone (survival of the fittest). It is about learning to accept what can't be repaired and starting to distance oneself from other people's self-induced mess. It is about separating from futile relationships and from situations that can't be fixed. It can be a month of cutting off people, who refuse to make it work with us, who refuse to do the necessary inner work and who prefer to stay in ignorance."[]

September 21, 2019 - Gemini Moon Void-of-Course -

"When the Moon is (Void-of-Course) in Gemini, try to get as much information as possible from other sources. Let this be a period of fact finding. Don’t get into arguments with other people. Rather listen to their point of view without debate. Later you’ll be able to make some important decisions because you’re gathered facts."[61]

Also sent the following note to an Astrologer who combines the transiting astrological aspects with Human Design:

Thank you very much for last week's report with the 'heads-uo' that it would be an emotional week![62] That turned out to be true for me this past day or so. Fortunately I have a substantial enough disposition and alignment to peace that I avoided arguing about the complaint that a friend communicated to me. Also I find it helpful that I have adopted "The Four Agreements." Are you familiar with these? .........
In Gratitude

September 19 - 20, 2019 -

We enter Gate 6, (Solar Plexus Center) Line 6 at 6:51 (Pacific) on September 20, 2019.[60]

Line 6 - The peacemaker
The discipline and integrity of a superior force to unilaterally cease conflict to permit surrender and survival of its foe.

Exaltation: The highest form of reason is that life is sacred. The emotional power to end conflict tempered by feelings and sensitivity to others.

Detriment: The peacemaker whose actions are just but whose terms are unacceptable. The emotional power to end conflict but only after one's conditions have been satisfied.


Wondering how this influence will play out in the world at large.

September 15, 2019 - We enter Gate 6, Line 2 at 10:37 Pacific, September 16, 2019.

Gate 6 - Conflict - Gate of Friction
Feeling, Emoting, and Sensitivity -

The fundamental design component of progress. The law that growth cannot exist without friction. The energy for producing life itself.

Line 2 - The guerilla
The ability to maximize an inferior position through timely contact and withdrawal.

Exaltation: Aesthetic sensitivity and mental detail can find the weakest point. The sensitivity to find the weakest point in a conflict and to exploit it emotionally.(i)

Detriment: The kamikaze, striking but moot. A lack of sensitivity that blunders into conflicts.[59]


(i) At this point in this writer's reading of this transit he thought of one particular individual - a former "fellow gardener." Then he checked his library of Human Design BodyGraphs just for this one particular individual and Bingo! - they have this gate defined at this exact Line! Plus the planetary activation is with Uranus! This writer has seen their activation expressed n both states the emotional exploitation as well as the "lack of sensitivity."

August 28, 2019 - The Super New Moon - Friday 30th -

"This new moon starts a monthly cycle that is about trying to be included, finding a new social form and having patience with one's oppressors.

(Self-)Oppression can come from impatience and putting time pressure on others. Oppression can come from suspicion and doubt. Oppression can also come from putting unrealistic demands onto others and pressuring them to fulfill them: expecting others to be genius and to deliver, yet not being able to be a genius success oneself.

The masculine archetype is more likely to struggle with the first, the feminine archetype is more likely to struggle with the latter. The point is: how do we deal with it gracefully?"[56]


When it comes to "putting" things on others and "how (to) deal with it gracefully" this blog-writer and dedicated transformationist has two suggestions. Firstly do your best to understand the other individuals. Knowing the Human Design of others whom you are dealing with can greatly support your understanding. I.e. if the other does not have a defined Heart center then they are not designed to make any promises. They have nothing ti proves to anyone. Second suggestion is consider adopting "The Four Agreements." All four agreements can support your transformation in how you approach and relate to others and spare you of so much needless suffering by putting an end to your projections onto others that neither they nor you really deserve.

This New Moon is a most excellent time to consider adopting "The Four Agreements"!

August 29, 2019 - Fibonacci On My Mind -

"A simple astronomical fact is that the mean tropical year of 365.242 days divided by the Fibonacci ratio 13/8 equals 224.7 days - the orbit of Venus. What beautiful precision! Astronomers never mention this, but astrologers love this fact because Venus rules aesthetics and beauty - the popular attributes of the golden ratio."[57]


After his latest research session on this subject matter this blog-writer spontaneously began imagining how this information can be applied within the solar system. The above quote is the first instance of a scientific reference to come to him in this regards.


"Phi and the Solar System" by Gary Meisner -
"The dimensions of the Earth and Moon are in Phi relationship, forming a Triangle based on 1.618."[58]

August 17, 2019 - When The Moon Is Void of Course -

You've possibly heard that there is "a time for every purpose under heaven." Recently this blog writer was happy to discover suggestions by an astrologer regarding what the purposes can be during the times when the moon is void-of-course (V/C). At the moment of this writing the moon is V/C in Pisces.

The astrologer says: "When the Moon is in Pisces you may feel listless and tired. Either you’ve been overdoing things in your life or you’re agreed to too many external obligations. This can be one of the most difficult void-of-course Moon signs for any meetings. There’s no focus. People aren’t listening to one another. This is really a time period for reflection not interaction."[55]

October 11, 2019 - Moon V/c In Pisces -

"When the Moon is in Pisces you may feel listless and tired. Either you’ve been overdoing things in your life or you’re agreed to too many external obligations. This can be one of the most difficult void-of-course Moon signs for any meetings. There’s no focus. People aren’t listening to one another. This is really a time period for reflection not interaction."[64]

Transit Analysis -

"Productive: accepting that something can't be corrected and maintaining one's strength through forgetting the past. Solely focusing on survival and on surviving the shock.

Having or practicing sympathy. Re-evaluation. Going beyond what is and what was. Finding the right Spirit in others: recognizing the surrendered ego and the people with the right ego-quality to work with in order to birth something bigger into the world. Moving towards projects that can change the way in which the structures of the world work. Sometimes these might be projects that change our internal structures and perspective first, so that we can reach a new level of consciousness from which humanity can manifest and build totally new structures – which might be quite necessary after Pluto finalizes the reset of our old structures in January 2020."[65]

July 27, 2019 - Time To Shine More Radiantly! -

"This will be a good weekend for simple socializing and lighthearted fun and chatter. The Moon entered Gemini in the wee hours of the morning. Gemini moves quickly, as she gathers and shares information with everyone available. At 9:53 PM (Eastern) Venus follows the Sun into expressive dramatic Leo. What a great night it will be to go dancing, performing or watching the performances of others. Venus will remain in Leo until August 21. These are the weeks to shine your inner light and your values most brightly. While Venus is in Leo you want to luxuriate in abundance, beauty, and love. This is a time to get out and show yourself in your most sparkly expression. Modesty and refinement will be with us soon enough. Shine a spotlight on the very best part of yourself and let yourself SHINE. Allow yourself to be SEEN even as you encourage others to show their best side, and applaud them when they do!"[54]

July 8, 2019 - Mercury is Retrograde - July 7th – July 31, 2019 -

"Mercury turned retrograde on Sunday, July 7th at 7:14 PM Eastern time. The retrograde continues until July 31st at 11:58 PM Eastern time.

(You can) Ignore folks who insist on seeing the negative side of Mercury retrograde.

When you understand how to work with the planets you will discover these times are a great gift to productivity.

The KEY is to focus your attention on all that has been left undone. Clean up and complete tasks and projects that are unfinished. Don’t start anything new.

Be clear in your communications and allow extra time to get where you are going.

Regarding your expectations of others, give everyone extra slack.

When used properly Mercury Retrograde may be the most productive times of the year."[52]


Re: "Be clear in your communications." This area alone is worthy of as much devotion as you are willing to give it. If you can consider this from any of the many perspectives that point to the innumerable direct-links between communication and life, communication and health, etc. then that awareness can support your efforts to "follow-up" in your communications with others, complete the unfinished communications. speak your "withholds" as lovingly as you can and to the best of your ability.

Now is the most perfect time to apply "The Four Agreements"![53]

July 1, 2019 - The Metonic Cycle -

“The Metonic cycle is named after Meton, (5th Century BCE Athenian astrologer) who was the first (as far as we know) to document this amazing cycle. Every 19 years, eclipses, New Moons, Full Moons, indeed all Moon phases, take place at the same zodiac degree and on the same day of the year. This is because 235 lunar months and 19 solar years are the same length of time, 6939 days.

If you calculate a lunar phase return for your 19th, 38th, 57th or 76th year around your birthday, you will find that both the Sun and the Moon are located at the same position as when you were born.

Significant life events and decisions are often seen at these 19 year intervals. Close to the Nodal Cycle in time, there are often key connections, relationships, career decisions and a host of life altering events.

The Lunar Phase Return at age 19, 38, 57 or 76 can be even more significant if there is a planet making a conjunction to a planet or point in your natal chart.”[50]


This 19-yr cycle has been consistently most significant for this Blog-writer thus inspiring him to investigate this further! Age 19 was life/death and destiny pivotal!

What "a person-centered astrology should deal with is not external events or any quantitative fact, but only, or at least essentially, with qualities of being, feeling, thinking, and behavior. The essential fact not only psychologically speaking, but in terms of the most fundamental evaluation of any aspect of human experience, is not what a person does, feels, or thinks, but the quality of his actions, feelings, and thoughts; and this quality is, of course, related to the individual's motivation, but not necessarily his conscious motivation.."[49]

The same principal presented in the above can be applied to the astrological elements in one's Human Design BodyGraph. Although Human Design is not astrology it does depend upon several astrological elements - i.e. the planets which are the same planets as in astrology.

March 30, 2019 - April Full Moon - Continuing in Libra! -

"...This is the second Libran Full Moon in a row and happens on Good Friday. Last month at the Equinox we had a Full Supermoon at 0 Libra just hours after the Sun entered Aries. This Full Moon happens at the end of Libra and highlights the recent ingress of Uranus into Taurus which is only a couple of degrees away.

Asteroid Hygeia, healing goddess, joins this line up.
Healing is a big focus at this Full Moon with Chiron and Mercury in a close conjunction. Communication, both speaking our truth, listening to others and offering our support is very important now. Libra is all about balance and fairness, but the big line-up of planets in Aries suggests the focus is mostly on ourselves and not on the needs of others."[47]

March 11, 2019 - "Moon Phases" -

"Although we think and speak of ‘the phases of the Moon’ what we are really speaking of is not the Moon itself, but the relationship (the cycle) between the Sun and the Moon. There are 8 phases to this cycle and we are most familiar with four of them. The cycle begins with the New Moon when the Sun and Moon join together at the same degree of the zodiac. The first Quarter Moon comes a week later as they come to a 90degree distance between them. Following a week later is the Full Moon which occurs when the Sun and Moon are 180degrees apart in full opposition. The Last Quarter Phase comes the following week when they are once again 90degrees apart. Both the First and Last Quarter Moon phases are considered to be times when we are confronted with some sort of dilemma. These are times when we pivot to a new direction. At the First Quarter, we take action to move forward toward illumination. At the Last Quarter Moon, we pivot to release something that we no longer require or desire."[45]

Lunar calendars predate the modern-day solar-based Gregorian calendar. The Judaic culture had this orientation. It's an orientation that resonates closer to the earth with regards to the lunar phases upon all life.

February 5, 2019 - Jupiter in Sagittarius through 2019 -

Jupiter’s transit through fiery, adventurous, and virtuous Sagittarius urges us to seek knowledge, understanding, and truth. As Jupiter moves through Sagittarius, we learn and understand that we may be limiting ourselves if we stick to the same old, same old, and we instinctively want to venture out, do new things, meet new people, and learn new things. This is, in fact, a fabulous time for education, training, travel, and publishing. We’re encouraged to pull ourselves out of the mundane, at least from time to time, to nourish our spirits.

Jupiter not only likes to expand, but it also loves to learn, so when Jupiter is paired with Sagittarius, we may be more interested and enthusiastic about religion, ethics, and philosophy, as well as anthropology, the law, justice, travel, and geography. There can be a stronger desire to find the truth, the word, or something that helps us find more meaning. We may see more of these themes and topics in the media as we become more and more fascinated with Sagittarian energies.[44]

October 31, 2018 - 2019 Celestial Insight By: Michele Finey -

“ In 2019 Pluto continues its slow journey through Capricorn, reminding us about the limitations of the Earth
and urging us to live more sustainably. With Saturn here too, converging towards a conjunction in early
2020 the global focus is on restructuring, with a number of pressing financial and environmental issues to
address. These will become more critical in 2019.

Fortunately, Uranus fully enters Taurus in March 2019 paving the way for creative inventions and new
developments in sustainable technologies. New products and services will be rolled out over the coming seven years and governments will have to adjust their policies. This new marketplace will factor in environmental risks and cater to the needs of people and the planet. This is by and large a positive transit, unlike the last time Uranus was in Taurus (1934-42) when it was conjunct Saturn, shortly after the discovery of Pluto (1930).

The ever growing list of planets in Capricorn means we will continue to hold our politicians and governments accountable and expect more from them as we move forward.

Chiron fully enters Aries in 2019 for a 7 year stint. This is likely to pioneer new healing initiatives and
highlight the impacts of trauma and conflict, helping facilitate personal healing. …

Jupiter will transit its own sign Sagittarius throughout 2019, enhancing our love of freedom and boosting
confidence. Generosity and speculation will be bolstered and with Jupiter squaring Neptune three
times in 2019, people will question their beliefs more than ever, especially those who have rightly lost faith
in the church. This aspect can also lead to excess, escapism and delusional tendencies.

Astrology is the study of time and its many cycles. Repeating planetary patterns provide us with under-
standing of what we can expect, and what lessons we can learn from these eternal cycles. [41]

2019 adds up to 12/3 a universal "3" for the creative expression with words through writing and speech - ideally for the joy life! Read the first agreement by Don Miguel Ruiz in "The Four Agreements" and "Be Impeccable With Your Word"!

July 7, 2019 - Continuing Re: "people will question their beliefs more than ever, especially those who have rightly lost faith in the church." -

This blog-writer now sees significant evidence of this particular influence (under the current Jupiter transit in Sagittarius) playing out as of just a few days ago upon discovering an open letter published a Google by a former member of the same "Lord's Recovery" system that this writer had left in 1978.

More Note-worthy Sabian Symbol info -

Inspired to begin applying the idea from a previous written note that reads: "need to include all five symbols (in the five-fold sequence that covers a five degree spread throughout the whole Astrological mandala). The first and second symbols are like thesis and antithesis and the third - integration. The fourth symbol suggest what has to be done or how to do it." Although this note doesn't include the fifth symbol the thought come to mind that it could possible represent the "Why" of the preceding four-fold process and that may suggest that the first is "What", the third as "Where to", the fourth is "How."

Another note written at Libra 3 degrees says: "according to Dane - 2 Libra 8 should be MC on the chart for the Declaration of Independence." That degree is the midpoint of the five-sequence spread for this writer's natal Sun!

October 20, 2018 - Early Morning Thoughts in "Pent-angles" -

The "angle" I was thinking of is an astrological aspect called: Quintile:
"The quintile (abrv. QNt or Qui) is an angle of 72°, i.e. the angle for a regular pentagon. A separation of 72±2° is considered a quintile. This aspect is considered somewhat similar to a semisextile (moderately beneficial), but effort is not needed to reap its benefits. Indicates talent and vaguely fortunate circumstances."[39]

I imagined a figure of a man (somewhat like that of "The Vitruvian Man" by Leonardo da Vinci).[40] In my version the circle is the zodiacal circle of one's natal chart. The position of the "head" of my man is centered at the degree of the natal sun with the chart turned as needed to have that degree at Midheaven. Then the out-streached hands are 72 degrees on either side of the Sun "head" position. And the feet are another 72 degrees from the hands. And planetary activations (in addition to the Sun) at any of these five points (whether in the natal, transits, progressions, etc.) would then be considered in light of the whole "man".

Monday, October 1, 2018 -

"After the past five months of Pluto retrograde, we begin a new week with this tiny powerhouse of a planet moving forward. Some hidden issues (in the culture and possibly, our personal lives) begin to break out of the swamp it has been relegated to.

... Astrologically, Pluto holds great intensity, depth, and deep power and empowerment. ...

Watch for something to rise, newly transformed from the ashes of recent suffering. It is time to look into the dark areas of your deepest self and find the courage to be fully vulnerable with your honesty."[38]

September 22, 2018 - The Zodiac -

"Each sign of the Zodiac is a stage in the slow transformation of nature during a full year. When the sun enters the sign of Aries, it is the beginning of spring, the gushing forth of energies, and the bursting open of buds. This surge continues in Taurus and Gemini with the blossoming of leaves and flowers. Summer starts with the constellation of Cancer when the seed is formed; then the fruit ripens (constellation of Leo). Once it is ripened, we harvest it (constellation of Virgo). Then comes autumn (signs of Libra, Scorpio and Sagittarius), and we harvest the last fruits, the leaves fall, and vegetation dies and decomposes. At last comes winter (signs of Capricorn, Aquarius and Pisces), as the seed is buried in the ground where it dies and is absorbed into the earth. But it is from this death that new seeds will be born, emerge and blossom anew. This is how the cycle of vegetation teaches us the secrets of life, death and resurrection."[36]

September 29, 2018 - Transiting Pluto Square Neptune for "My Generation" -

"Squares: A Transiting Square to a Natal Planet placement occurs when two planets are 90 degrees apart and within a 1 to 3 degree orb of each other. This indicates challenges. Planets that rub each other the wrong way. Problematic tension. The Square Transit makes the Natal planet feel confined and brings challenges to some more than others; - depending on the two Planets involved. Remember Squares also make things happen. They can bring on confrontational energy that allows breaking free of confining situations.
Pluto Square Neptune A generational transit in which somehow your generation is involved in the tearing down and then the rebuilding of ~ spiritual beliefs, environmental and natural resources, charitable institutions, drugs or any of the areas that Neptune rules. Spiritually ~ conflicts with others over spiritual beliefs. Also possible to have much enlightenment and illumination ~ depending on your age and any past knowledge and experience. Money ~ conflicts over money matters. Secrets or 'skeletons in the closet' are somehow exposed to others and/or publicly. A time to face hidden fears. Relationships ~ alienation from old ways, friends and groups. Possible occurrence of the death of an associate."[37]

Pluto is tightly (10') square my natal Neptune now.

Tuesday, September 11, 2018 - (Exactly 17 yrs. since "9/11" - also on a Tuesday) -

"If the prenatal lunar eclipse indicates what we are on the planet to learn, and the prenatal solar eclipse indicates what we are here to teach; then conjunctions in synastry might show where and how we can be teachers or pupils of someone we care about."[35]

Tuesday night: The current Sun Transit in Hexagram/Gate 47 inspired me to search for an extra planetary activation for my 47th as that wasn't activated by the typical natal activations. So glad I did as I discovered my AC in Sidereal is at Line 4 of this Hexagram/Gate! -

"Line 4 - Repression -
The constraints of external oppression.
Exalted: The strength of identity that even in times of the most powerful oppression can maintain its resources and to some extent ensure their survival for the benefit of others. A sense of identity that can be maintained despite external conditioning."[17]

This is wonderfully affirmative for me! Most especially in light of the fact that I grew up in virtually constant fear of corporal punishment from my father. The fear continued for many years even after I left home! I could elaborate if I needed to and fortunately I don't need to. The point is "the strength of (my) identity" survived it all!

August 26, 2018 - Inspiration From Antiquity -

"... We have the famous quote from Hippocrates: 'a physician without a knowledge of Astrology has no right to call himself a physician .' The was held to be true by physicians throughout the 17th Century in the West and in many parts of the world, such as India, it was never forgotten. The reverse was also true. Every astrologer was expected to know something about Physic because astrology deals with body, mind and soul. Various plants were used in relation to their planetary natures to bring about the desired result."[32]

One of the things I so deeply appreciate about "The Human Design System" is that it brings all of astrology right where it belongs - down from the sky and right into the Individual's "vehicle". This statement is an obvious truth when we realize that the individual is a microcosm of the universe! I think it's fair to say that Hippocrates knew this. Human Design reveals every individual as a unique nine-centered being in contrast to the belief that all human beings are much like animals merely consisting of "flesh and blood" (or some variation of the materialistic theme). In light of what Human Design reveals our vision and perception of one another needs to be enlarged toward the possibility of seeing the whole of who and what we are as unique individual expressions of a most magnificent cosmology that exists on more levels then anyone can "shake a stick" at!

More regarding Hippocrates - my vision as a "Chef-Doctor" and in reconceptualizing what the functions of "chef" can be is largely inspired by key thoughts that have been attributed to Hippocrates (i.e. "Let Food Be Your Medicine and Medicine Be Your Food", Health Begins In The Gut") and the above "a physician without a knowledge of Astrology[34] has no right to call himself a physician ." Let's face it - medical doctors are not inclined to fully adopt these thoughts. That leaves a great gap to the extent that patients can be supported by their doctors. The gap needs to be filled and the "Chef-Doctor" is just the one who can fill that! Subsequently this creates a need for Chef-Doctor training. The Cheeta vision includes this training. The Chef-Doctor is a bridge between Biodynamic-Permaculture farmers, growers, ranchers and the like and the New Medicine practitioners. As such the Chef-Doctor will work most closely with the individual in developing specific dietary protocols based on the individual's healing phase and Human Design mechanics.

September 8, 2018 - The Progressed Lunation Cycle -

"... As in astrology nothing is totally and individually significant which does not make a complete cycle of motion around the zodiac, the most significant factor in the progression technique is the Moon. More significant still, however, is the cyclic change in the soli-lunar relationship — that is, the lunation cycle of some 30 days. In terms of progressions, this means a 30-year cycle, the 'progressed lunation cycle.'

From the way I see and analyze it, this progressed lunation cycle (from one progressed New Moon to the next) provides us with an over-all moving picture within which all other progressions find their place and acquire a broader meaning in terms of the total development of the personality."[33]

August 13, 2018 - The New Moon’s Message: Re-parenting Ourselves Into Wholeness -

"Being born into a world which is structured around self-sacrifice and conformity has left wounds within us around the expression of our true authentic nature. Many of us learned in early childhood that if we did not bend to the consensus way we would be rejected; that stepping outside of the model provided for us, by our parents and our social roles, would ultimately lead to alienation, which in turn leads to the internalization that there is something wrong with our authentic self, bringing many of us to reject our own authenticity.

Our man-made structures rely on an established order built on certain principles. For everything to work, individuality must be exchanged for security and everyone needs to contribute to maintain the structures in place. The new emerging order of our reality is far more complex than our linear man-made structures, it encompasses the whole as an interdependent ecosystem, which relies on the very opposite philosophy to our current model — that each individual must shine in their unique authenticity. Each individual must be their true authentic selves within the new structure, and within that we can never be alienated because each part is dependent on the whole and each part empowered by the interconnections of others being authentic and empowered.

Many of us carry a wound around the expression of our authentic selves, it may be wrapped in fear or shame and it likely has a core belief of inadequacy keeping it in place. This wound is the result of rejecting parts of oneself, from the belief that there is something wrong with who we naturally are. As we seek to heal the pain created by this damaged sense of self we often find ourselves recreating it by attempting to heal it with the very thing that caused it, perpetuating a cycle of inner lack and woundedness. Within this cycle we lose sight of what nourishes us and only seek to find what feeds us, which only temporarily staves off the hunger. We forget how to shine and instead seek an external source of light to nourish us and validate our worth.

The current energetic pattern is inviting us to remember that parts of ourselves which have been malnourished. To identify the beliefs which have perpetuated the rejection of yourself (or parts of yourself) and to break the cycle of lack by refusing to settle for anything less than what will truly nourish you from within. To relearn that being individual no longer means being disconnected, it means being interconnected and whole. It means being embraced for the very things which make you shine uniquely as yourself.

It is time to bring deeper value into your being; to nourish and cultivate the totality of who you are. This means rejecting the things which only temporarily satisfy your needs to make way for the slow gentle growth and cultivation of your true inner fulfillment. It means not only accepting your authentic self and needs but nurturing them lovingly as you re-parent yourself into your wholeness.[31]

June 11, 2018 - Jupiter in Scorpio (Desires and hopes), Pluto (transformation in Capricorn) and Saturn (Structure) in Capricorn are all RETROGRADE:

You know those times when everything goes haywire, and you can’t figure out why? Look up, stargazer: A planet could be retrograde—meaning that from the vantage point of Earth, it appears to be spinning backward. What’s really happening? Well, the Earth is completing its orbit around the Sun faster than other planets outside its orbit. Periodically, it will outpace them—and that’s when retrograde mayhem breaks loose.

Much like a speeding car or train passing a slower one, the planet that’s being passed will appear to stop and move backward—which is the apparent retrograde period.
While retrograde planets are just an illusion, astrology followers can attest to experiencing their effects. The areas that a retrograde planet rules can become weak, challenging or troublesome during this cycle.

All planets go retrograde periodically, except the sun and the moon…so we need to embrace these inevitable cycles as a fact of life, and an opportunity to build character. As the Buddha said, “No mud, no lotus.” Sometimes, it takes a challenge for us to develop the inner strength and self-knowledge we need to evolve as humans.[28]

Best not to personalize what other people do rather "planetize it"!

June 15, 2018 - Urania - The Astrological Asteroid -

"Urania was one of the nine Muses, daughters of Zeus and Mnemosyne.

She was the Muse of astronomy, astrology, philosophy and cosmology.

Astrologically, Urania represents astrological interest or capacity; logic and rational thought; astronomy; the ability to conceptualize and incorporate theoretical or abstract knowledge; and a gift for looking past small detail to a larger concept or theme."[]

When I hear an individual express an interest in learning about astrology I like to know where their interest lies in their natal chart so that I can acknowledge the context of their interest. Knowing the placement of Urania in the individual's natal chart can help me identify their particular interest.

June 6, 2018 - Sun Transit In Hexagram 35 -

At: Line 6 - Rectification - "The energy to correct.
Exaltation: The process of crystallization coupled with ambition that assures timely and effective correction. Progressive change that results from correction.
Detriment: A destructive tendency that in its personal application may be the necessary severity to ensure correction but when applied generally, it will meet with resistance and tend to reinforce rather than rectify situations. Correction which brings change through severity and even destruction, and will always meet resistance.

Quarter of Civilization, the Realm of Dubhe | Theme: Purpose fulfilled through Form ...
35 -
"This Gate is part of the Channel of Transitoriness, A Design of a 'Jack of All Trades', linking the Throat Center (Gate 35) to the Solar Plexus Center (Gate 36). Gate 35 is part of the Collective Sensing (Abstract) Circuit with the keynote of sharing.
Gate 35 is driven by a restless curiosity and high expectations to explore new horizons for the sheer exhilaration of doing it, but not alone. Gate 35's voice says, "I feel," and what it usually feels is a desire for change. This is the voice of impersonal, relational experience. We are prodded along not by awareness, but by a hunger for depth of feeling that is conditioned by the emotional wave. Like hunger, desire and curiosity can only be temporarily ameliorated. We are focused on collecting experiences to learn from them, rather than on repeating experiences to master them. Mastery is expressed as wisdom and manifests as advice.
Our memories may provide more satisfaction than the experience itself. Our taste for new experience, and the need to see what or who is on the other side of the mountain, can keep us healthy and alert. When correctly entering into experience for its own sake, and remaining an objective observer, our clear sharing carries the potential to transform humanity. Experience seekers don't often take time to consider the repercussions of their actions, and without Gate 36, we are prone to seeking an emotional rush in the hope of escaping the pain of boredom when there is no new experience to dive into."[17]

I find great significance with this Throat Gate activation now as it coincides with my declaration this afternoon (approximately 4:30 PM Pacific) that "I Am A Writer!"![27]

July 7, 2019 - Follow-up Re: "I Am A Writer!"! -

Now in the 14th month since this (quoted) declaration and aware of some wonderment whether this is the second year of a seven-year transformational process toward a fuller realization of being a writer. (What a delightful thing to wonder about this ; ~ ) The present-time realization of being a writer is consistent on a daily basis and that is deemed to be a good indication of "The First Agreement."

So glad to have thought that as "The First Agreement" is now realized as possibly one of the greatest assets that a writer could have (unless the writer works for MSM or any other entity created and/or controlled for promoting its own propaganda). All grateful this writer does not do that!

June 4, 2018 -

"This is a day best suited for wild, innovative thinking ... With the Moon in Aquarius, you will do well to seek insights and genius ideas in the company of others. .... view your life from a more detached viewpoint. You are more interested in the plight of humanity and in the big picture of others ..."[26]

So glad to get this perspective today. I feel it supports my intention to think about a couple items regarding "humanity and in the big picture of others". I was also supported with the current special issue of TIME devoted to Harry Potter!

May 22, 2018 - Mercury Sextile Neptune -

"... A sextile aspect forms from Mercury to Neptune as the evening approaches. Your focus will shift as conversations and ideas take on a softer tone. This is a good evening to soothe any harsh edges that may recently have been created between yourself and others. It will be easy to express a gentler more sensitive perceptive. This will be a great evening for any project that entails creative writing or the expression of your dreams."[25]

This reading of the starry script and noting the "great" timing for "creative writing" comes to my awareness serendipitously after replying earlier to a new contact whom I'm being introduced to and for whom I offered my support for identifying "right timing" for his writing project/s! This is to make special note of "Mercury Sextile Neptune" for that purpose.

May 20, 2018 - Venus From The Human Design perspective -

May 3, 2018 - Zero Degrees is kind of the sperm hitting the egg,
a moment and degree of WOWSERS;;;
and Uranus is crossing into the sign (Taurus) and hitting 0 degrees 3 times …

29 Degrees (Aries) indicates when Uranus is returning to the sign during its retrograde phase. 29 degrees is often called the ANARETIC Degree (Many astrologers consider 0 and 29 degrees of any sign critical degrees as well.)

The 0 and 29 degrees are more crisis-oriented points, especially in predictive work. Uranus crosses Zero Degrees three times including the day before or the day it returns to 29 degrees of the previous sign: SO look to the week before and after these dates for significant world changes. YEP WORLD CHANGES…

May 15 2018 Taurus (Zero Degrees) URANUS ENTERS TAURUS
Nov 06 2018 Aries (29 Degrees) URANUS RE ENTERS ARIES
Mar 06 2019 Taurus (Zero Degrees) URANUS RE ENTERS TAURUS

Just noted the first two dates in my calendar. Haven't extended that to 2019 as of yet.

April 28, 2018 - Sun has entered Gate 24: "The Return - Gate of Rationalization" -
and will be in Line 3 - "The addict" on the 29th: "The powerful attraction of regressive forms.:

Exaltation: The ultimate though difficult triumph over regression. The difficult but possible task of overcoming irrationality.

Detriment: Addiction and regression legitimized by success. Irrationality maintained and legitimized by success."[17]

The description of the "Detriment" strikes me as a significant characteristic in many "professional" forms and especially in the economic spheres of "banking" (that employs "debt virus") as well as the governmental spheres (starting with "Congress").

March 8, 2018 - Sun Transit Through The Hexagrams -

We entered Gate 22, Line 2 at 13:55 UT (5:55 AM Pacific) today, March 8, 2018.

Gate 22 Grace "Gate of Openness" -
Sharing Spirit with Others -

Line 2 - Charm school
The belief that style can mask nature.

Exaltation: The ability to successfully delude oneself and others. The possibility to attract others with an emotional style.

Detriment: The legalization of form over substance. Where the style is energized at the expense of awareness.[17]

I find the line description coincides with my thought of earlier that personality can be likened to magic. It is the magic of theatre. "Person" (persona) is the mask.

September 23, 2016 - Initial Post -

The book: "Cosmos and Psyche" is one of the most validating presentations I know of for the application of an astrological perspective. I add to that the Human Design System's perspective on astrology regarding the scientifically verified neutrino effect. With these two perspectives I have what I've needed for a fuller appreciation and acceptance of astrological sciences in my life, relations and work.

Once you let your mind to allow for the "neutrino effect" in your world and the possibility that every degree of the zodiac can have an archetypal impact then the next book I could recommend is "An Astrological Mandala" by Dane Rudhyar. Dane reinterpreted the symbols of astrologer Marc Edmond Jones and "a clairvoyant friend" to formalize and reveal their "archetypal meaning of 360 phases of human experience".[12]

November 13, 2019 - An Astrologer's Opinion on Cosmos and Psyche -

“The ancient perception of unity between the human soul (the microcosm) and the vast world soul of the cosmos (the macrocosm) has become impossible for most people today, and the ancient formulation ‘As above, so below,’ has been relegated to the junk heap of ‘outdated superstitions.”[68]


The above quote is from 2017 a full decade after "Cosmos and Psyche" which makes this blog-writer wonder whether the quoted astrologer was familiar with the substantial contribution Richard Tarnas made toward reuniting "human soul (Psyche) and the vast world soul (Cosmos).

Fortunately the author shortly "redeems" himself by saying: “It should be said here that large numbers of people worldwide have found in astrology an effective method of refocusing and experiencing today the age-old sense of unity with the cosmos.”


February 16, 2018 -

The Forthcoming (to the Western Hemisphere) Transits in the Current Hexagram Gate - Gate 30: "The Clinging Fire - Gate of Feelings" - Surrendering to Fate - "Freedom recognized as an illusion and limitation accepted as fate. Emotional awarenes lies between hope and pain." - ... Godhead - Kali -

Line 6 - "Enforcement - The discipline to maintain right action." -

Exaltation: The assertiveness to purge the inferior while accepting to lead the weak. The strength to eliminate negative feelings.

Detriment: An inherent peacefulness that all too often will abide the presence of inferior forces. A lack of strength in eliminating negative feelings."[17]

What inspires me to post this particular transit here now (possibly about 14 hours ahead of when it actually will touch upon the East Coast of the u. S. of A.) is what I consider as a "High Ideal" - namely the combination of the overall energetics of this Hexagram's 6th Line in "Enforcement" as "the (Self) discipline to maintain right action" along with the "strength to eliminate negative feelings" and realizing that this is accomplished on a voluntary Individual basis rather than by exterior forces! I think of it as a "High Ideal" of Self-Government in the same spirit of self-governemnt that was declared on or about July 4, 1776!

Simultaneous to the above stated "realization" is a corresponding thought of "law enforcement" that although it appears to be most largely consisting of "exterior forces" and although it may very well be a system that can not to be improved - still the nature of this system and its contrast with a self-disciplined approach to "enforcement" can possibly serve as a motivation and inspiration to think in other ways rather than relying upon a system that is (IMO) inferior in so many ways.

January 29, 2018 - Super (Intense) Full "Blue" Moon, Lunar Eclipse in Leo!

"January ends on a powerful note. At 8:27 AM EST, we come to the Leo Full Moon and Lunar Eclipse which falls at 11° Leo. A Lunar Eclipse deepens the intensity of the Full Moon.

.. Wednesday’s Full Moon Lunar Eclipse is aligned with an opposition to Venus, the planet that relates to the feminine principle, as does the Moon itself. Venus represents the feminine ideals of beauty, resources, and the ability to form loving partnerships. The Moon represents the feminine ideals of mothering, protecting, and nurturing. Remember, this has nothing whatsoever to do with gender; all of us, regardless of gender, have the Moon and Venus in our charts. We each share both feminine and masculine attributes within our personal patterns. With an opposition between these two energies, this aspect suggests the importance of considering how these sides of your feminine nature seek reconciliation.

Look at the opposing houses that are ruled by Leo and Aquarius in your personal chart. This is where you are currently seeking this balance. Opposing houses can be seen as two sides of the same coin. Bring them together. If you do not know your chart well enough to understand this, simply consider where in your life you need to bring balance to personal issues vs collective issues, generosity vs restraint, ownership vs freedom."[14]

IMO the "intensity" of this particular Full Moon is possibly modified by the Leo degree archetype as symbolized by the Sabian Symbol: "An Evening Party of Adults on a Lawn Illumined by Fancy Lanterns. KEYNOTE: Group-relaxation in fashionable surroundings as an escape from work routine."[15]

The Sabian Symbol for the Super Full Moon:


KEYNOTE: The revelation of latent worth in an experience once it is seen in its deeper meaning.

In contrast to the “clown” symbol, which shows us man’s capacity to criticize and laugh at his superficial mannerisms and automatic habits or gestures, we now have a symbol which demands that we look beyond common appearances and try to discover the “occult” (i.e. hidden) character of every person and every experience. This symbol has been unduly glamorized: there is no particular reference here to an avatar or messiah, except in the sense that every man is potentially the avatar or manifestation of a Soul that has a definite and relatively unique function in the vast field of activity we call the Earth. To discover this occult potential of being, one requires a deeper or higher “vision,” a holistic perception — which is usually, but not always justifiably, called clairvoyance. The caricaturist also has to develop a special kind of “seeing” to enable him to extract the salient features of an outer personality or of a face. He picks out the most characteristic parts of a whole; the true clairvoyant perceives the essential meaning (or “message” and function) of the whole.

The contrast between the first and second symbols of this twenty-first five-fold sequence is indeed very significant. There may be no particular meaning in the fact that the nursing woman in this symbol is Chinese. Perhaps the psychic who visualized the scene may have mistaken a Tibetan for a Chinese woman, and unconsciously thought of the rather familiar process through which a new Dalai Lama, or other great Lamas, are searched for among newborn babies. The Keyword is REVELATION."[12]

"Revelation" is the term that inspired me to post all of the above scene's description as it relates to my founding of "Revelation Consultations" that supports individuals and: "picks out the most characteristic parts of a whole; the ... the essential meaning (or 'message' and function) of the whole". The picture is of "the whole" individual as a nine-centered being vs the former seven-centered being that was represented by the old seven chakra system. According to Ra Uru Hu a major mutation occur with the discovery Uranus in the late 1700s and individuals born as of that discovery came into this world with nine centers. However, the system established in the world as still seven-centered and that system continued through present time. Now we are in a time of great change where we can finally begin to see the old seven-centered world system break down and fall away allowing for both a nine-centered transitional system to emerge as a preparation for the next mutation to occur as of about 2027 (that I'll verify shortly).

On 12/11/17 we all have Pluto transiting at 18 degrees Capricorn, 08 minutes. That position is conjunct my natal IC. I've taken to study the significance of this transit for my life. In the process of seeking meaning I use the Sabian Symbols for my contemplations. In looking at the avian Symbols I read the following for Capricorn 18° that is relevant when Pluto reached 17° Capricorn as of January 3rd, 2017.


KEYNOTE: The protection afforded to individuals and groups by powerful institutions in charge of maintaining order.

This symbol reflects conditions prevailing in the past when Great Britain's fleet was policing the seas under the international principle of the freedom of the seas. Times have changed, but the concept remains valid. Power is required to maintain social order and relatively peaceful interpersonal as well as international relationships. Alas, this power can easily be misused under the pretext of preserving "law and order." Justice and compassion must balance social power, and especially the power of privileged groups. Where this symbol appears, the need for protection may be in evidence — or it may be a warning against using power for selfish advantage.

This is the third symbol in the fifty-eighth five-fold sequence. It brings to us a realization of the ambivalence of POLITICAL POWER, its value and its dangers.

The book of Sabian Symbols I refer to is: "An Astrological Mandala: The Cycle of Transformations and Its 360 Symbolic Phases" by Dane Rudhyar. This has been my "astrological bible" since about 1980.

December 2, 2016 -

In her December 2016 Astrological Overview Carol Barbeau writes: "THE END And the BEGINNING of a NEW America and a new world ...". In April 1969 the Mood Blues released their album: "On the Threshold of a Dream" that had a sparking influence in my psyche. Based on what Carol presents in her current overview (sent to her subscribers) I believe we are exactly on "the Threshold" now!

March 1, 2017 -

Venus is Retrograde for six weeks, beginning on March 4th and continuing until April 15, 2017. The planet Venus relates to issues of love, money (as well as personal values), and beauty.

Venus (retrograde) may be asking you to:

*Consider what internal values are most important to you
*Consider what things you value most deeply
*Consider whom do you value
*Consider: are you being valued the way you need to be valued
*Consider: are you being paid/compensated in the way that you deserve
*Consider as Venus relates to health: are you taking care of yourself in the best way possible[1]

Also consider discovering where Venus is activated in your Human Design. Consider that: balance, harmony and beauty will flavor and enhance the channel defining the center if your Personality or Design Venus is in a defined Center.[2]

November 28, 2017 - Carol[3] on the upcoming Mercury retrograde -

"Expect that the themes of Sagittarius (truth, justice, honor, dignity, action ) will be playing out on Mercury's table. (mercury, communication, ideas, writing and VALUES since Values are pretty much determined by what we think, RIGHT)*** RETROGRADE.

Redo, reconnect, replay, revise, renew, recognize, reapply, REINVISION …and also sometimes this time 4 times yearly does take us back to examine an thought or action and see if it needs revision. REAPPLY for that loan, reconnect to work on fixing arguments, RE IMAGINE your life time."

I like the ending on this!

November 29, 2017 - Super Full Moon -

"This last Full Moon of the year is a Supermoon ... the only one we have been able to witness this year. All the other Supermoons have been New Moons and therefore invisible.

This powerful Supermoon takes place at 11 degrees of Gemini and there are a number of other planets located at 11 degrees of signs. Among these is Neptune, with which the Moon and Sun will form a tight mutable T-square. Jupiter meanwhile is at 11 degrees of Scorpio, making an awkward quincunx with the Moon. Neptune is known to create fog and uncertainty through which it is difficult to see clearly or make informed choices. Instead, it’s a time for imagination and intuition, reflection and mystery."[4]
Inspired by an article{6] to research my natal Eris -
I have the dwarf planet Eris in my 6th natal house. Eris is at 7Aries30 however this house has Pisces on the cusp. I also have Jupiter in this house 10Aries17.

6th House in Pisces -
My emotions are directly tied to my work, and when I'm you’re doing work that’s fulfilling, I feel great. If not, it has an impact on my physical health. I can do well when hired by another rather than as a boss, but need to make sure I don’t get taken advantage of. ... With Pisces here, I can do work that helps others, or work with spirituality or the metaphysical. However the aspects are interesting in that Eris is opposite my natal Saturn and considered conjunct my natal Jupiter. Also both Jupiter and Eris are retrograde.

Just how Eris impacts this house is something I have to work on understanding. I wanted to at least note the basics here. I did just post a comment for Vesta Lynn and look forward to a reply.

December 7, 2017 - Additional Perspectives -

Saturn/Chiron aspects in Synastry[8]

I can think of a couple relationships that I could check for this "synastry" between our charts.
From "Celestial Insights" - by Michele Finey[10] -

The coming Saturn-Pluto conjunction in Capricorn is the first time these two planets have united in that sign since the year 1518. That took place on 3 January 1518 when the Sun was also in Capricorn.

1518 was the time of the Reformation, when the Catholic Church, the most powerful institution in the world, was under threat by challenges to its authority. Martin Luther’s these of complaint that he nailed to the church door in Wittenberg, Germany on October 31, 1517 sparked a revolution. Within months of this act of defiance against the church, his 95 complaints were distributed widely throughout Europe thanks to the development of the printing press (around 1450).

We can expect today’s powerful institutions, such as banks, political organisations, mining companies and large multi-nationals (also the Catholic Church) to undergo a similar process with challenges to their authority by the weight of public opinion and new regulations.[9]

December 11, 2017 - "SKY MAGIC and the week which will change the world" - according to Carol Barbeau -

"... FROM Cayelin K Castell **** BIG changes coming at this time as Saturn enters Capricorn on December 19 in the window of the December Solstice with the Sun and much more.

The last time Saturn entered Capricorn was February 14, 1988 and the next day Uranus also entered Capricorn. Neptune was already in Capricorn around 9 degrees. This rare triple alignment of three outer planets lasted for a couple of years. Some articles claim that 1988 was the most historically significant year since 1945 when World War 2 ended. 1988 saw the Soviet Union collapse, the Berlin Wall came down, and the massacre in Tiananmen Square in Beijing, China.

The massacre took place after 6 weeks of protesting when the authoritarian communist government killed hundreds and perhaps thousands of civilians. Ironically Tiananmen translation means Gate of Heavenly Peace. What will 2018 bring with Saturn moving into Capricorn?"[11]
January 14, 2018 - In Anticipation of The Next Mercury Retrograde -

"The Pre-Shadow Phase -
This is the period of time when Mercury begins to slow down and passes over the same path in the sky where it will later stop and return to go backwards or retrograde. Although the Pre-Shadow is often ignored, it is very important, because much of the difficulty that is encountered later with the Mercury Retrograde period itself is set up in the Pre-Shadow.

Common ways that we may contribute to the Pre-Shadow is to ignore our inner voice, our intuition or the hints that the universe reveals to us. Often it is the details we ignore or the assumptions or judgments that we make that tend to set us up, especially when they are based o the untested beliefs of others or come as reactions from our negative experiences."[13]

January 30, 2018 - Jung on the cosmic Christ as revealed through astro-Christianity.

"... Jung answered his question of the lack of explicit data by positing that the authors of the gospel may have kept their celestial blueprint secret, in view of the abundant correlations. He said: 'Being the twelfth sign of the Zodiac, Pisces denotes the end of the astrological year and also a new beginning. This characteristic coincides with the claim of Christianity to be the beginning and end of all things, and with its eschatological expectation of the end of the world and the coming of God's kingdom.'"

I could comment additional thoughts on the above.


February 13, 2018 - Curent Sun Transit in Hexagram Gate 30 -

As of 10:37 PM (Pacific) on the 12th the Sun entered Line 1 - Composure -
Exaltation - The maximization of limitation in all cases. Stability through feelings, no matter what the situation.
Detriment - The ability to maintain composure but at the expense of progress. Balanced through feelings but unable to let go of them.[17]

I find the timing of this hexagram transit to be auspicious/encouraging!

Have a Happy New Moon and Chinese New Year! -

Carol Barbeau: "It might be possible to observe the tiny sliver of the Crescent New Moon with Venus on February 16 though both are still well within the glow of the sunset so only with a low horizon is this possible and it might take binoculars too."[18]

February 16, 2018 - Introduction to Astrological Healing Perspectives -

A thread regarding "Dwarf Planet": Chiron -

Healing is why we are here. For additional support on that path - I believe the placement of Chiron in our charts has the greater “leading” or primary role. Fortunately healing happens to be my choice and therefore this article now ranks at the top – not only in my library but in my active research and writing!

Feb. 11, 2018 At 9:46 AM Reply -
From: VestaLyn:
I agree with you, we are here to heal ourselves and others. I believe we are here to learn compassion and true connection. ...

Feb. 15, 2018 At 2:30 AM Reply -
Amen to “learn(ing) compassion and true connection”! –
How serendipitous it is for me to see: “true connection” as I have very recently “red-inked” a note on my whiteboard: “All the ways and means to most deeply connect with others” (plus a “footnote”! ; ~ ) with the intention of blogging on this. Now I’ll get to quote you, dear VestaLyn![21]

Continued reflections: I believe that our ways of healing ourselves are as unique and individualized as our Human Design. I believe communicating about these ways could require learning new "languages" as we "learn compassion and true connection" for ourselves and others. Healing is a tremendous purpose to embrace as it is literally all-inclusive on this planet and possibly beyond.

The right use of "Google" in a search gave me "about 784,000 results" for the search terms: "a course in miracles"healing. The themes include: "using the Course to find healing for cancer" and the following:

"Healing the Dream of Sickness -

... Sickness and the body are viewed in their metaphysical context, in which their purpose is defined as the fulfillment of the ego's wish to keep separation real in our minds while projecting responsibility for our condition. Sickness, regardless of its form, is seen as a shadow of our unconscious belief in sin and guilt. The body and the world, thus, are the source of neither sickness nor healing. Consequently, healing rests in our being able to look with Jesus at our decision to push love away and then blame something outside ourselves for our plight. Our joining with Jesus[19] in this way—without judgment—removes the cause of all sickness."[20]

I believe the quintessential essence in the above statement is: "to look ... without judgment ... at our decision to push love away" and then the rest will follow.

The potential for an astrological insight (via Chiron) may help reveal how the need for healing is a a universal part of the human condition and that this perspective can help lift our vision of the universal need for healing onto a more acceptable and more objective plane rather than be left only to personalize our experience which results in "blame(ing) something outside ourselves".

August 1, 2018 - Juno and "the transition state between old and new ways of being" -

"... there is a tendency to cling to old methods when circumstances have changed and a whole new paradigm is needed before the way clear can be seen. This frustration can sometimes lead to self-depreciation and loss of faith in oneself. Juno thus symbolizes the transition state between old and new ways of being, where the old fails to meet the needs of the times and the new is not yet manifest. She describes the need for a kind of spiritual self-rejuvenation that is needed in order to see oneself through times of utter disintegration into the future that awaits. Juno in the horoscope thus represents the ways in which we need to renew ourselves, and where our ability to adjust to changing circumstances is most tested. ...

Juno in 2nd House -
Juno in the second house indicates that you derive a sense of self-worth through being in a committed relationship. You may associate your mate with financial and material security. Sharing the responsibility for these matters is important in order for your relationship to be healthy. ..." [30]

August 18, 2018 -

Unexpectedly gifted with the following based on my natal chart:

Chiron in the Third House -

Chiron in the Third House (or sign) represents issues regarding developing one's intellect and communicating one's ideas with others. With this placement you may feel an almost compulsive curiosity regarding other people. Your desire is strong to communicate and to explore your world intellectually, but you may feel some kind of barrier that separates you from others at the same time. These feelings of being blocked in your ability to communicate and to get your point across can even manifest physically as a form of stuttering, or another ailment that prevents clear communication. These may seem physical, but the physical and the mental are so intimately related it really is hard to say. If there is a psychological reason behind difficulties in communicating with others, it is likely to be found in early youth, ... Whatever the childhood trauma that continues to give you difficulties in adult life, it is important to try to understand and relate well to your earlier self. If you can learn to love and accept who you were then, as well as who you are today, you will come a long way toward full participation in your communication with others. In your quest for wholeness it is quite possible that you will be drawn to helping others to communicate, perhaps taking on the role of a speech therapist or other helping person in other people's lives. As you begin to fully accept yourself you will be even more able to help others in their particular road to fulfillment also.

The following applies to your generation as a whole as well as to you personally:

Chiron in Sagittarius (or the Ninth House) represents issues with one's vital force of abstracting and understanding universal truth. This placement can lead to high achievement in the scholastic arena, but it may be nagging doubts that you are not really good enough that spur you on, rather than a pure love of learning. There is likely to be some form of painful realization surrounding the pursuit of wisdom, or perhaps in the area of philosophy or religion. It may be that parental figures had different notions of what makes the world make sense than you did, but for one reason or another you didn't take them on. Perhaps you were too young at the time for such a challenge, and now in your adult life you feel the pull of the beat of a distant drummer, but feel ambivalent or not sure enough of yourself to really do anything about it. In your frustration you may even seek to help other people to work out their own concepts of higher knowledge, while you yourself remain stuck in the mud of prior patterns. If so, it is time to shake off the shackles of the past and get on with your individual sense of your own philosophical values and visions. Perhaps by delving into what associations you have with bad models from early childhood, you can begin to more fully and completely inhabit the natural vision that belongs to your higher self. Then you can truly shine in the world of ideas, as you move out from your own center rather than the point of balance represented by other, more alien, philosophies.

May 5, 2019 - Nessus -

"Retrograde Nessus will hasten the manifestation of negativity and quickly dredge up guilt and pain. The effect would be to diminish our sense of self-worth and darken our interpretation of other people’s motives."[48]

How exciting to be able to follow the current Conjunction (of Pluto and Saturn along with Sun, Mercury and Ceres) here!

[77] Gene Keys, By Richard Rudd:


[79] The Sun -

KEYNOTE: The realization that one may grow through defeat as well as, and perhaps more than, through success.

While the preceding symbol referred to the drive toward success in culturally organized collective endeavors, this one presents us with the possibility of turning apparent external defeat into an inner spiritual achievement. We have recently seen how totally vanquished nations (Germany and Japan) have leaped forward and achieved great economic success. Much depends on the quality of the will and the inner integrity of the person.

At this second stage we find what seems to be a paradox, but the spiritual life is always paradoxical. The great sinner can become the most renowned saint, and a medieval Pope a criminal. What matters most always is INNER STRENGTH.

Saturn and Pluto -

KEYNOTE: The reward offered by society for the fulfillment of individual responsibility.

The fact that "two" awards are emphasized makes us believe that this may refer subtly to the recognition by the community that, whether he succeeded or failed, an individual who discharged his duty nobly under unusual circumstances is entitled to the respect and appreciation of the collectivity he served so well. What is implied here is a constant give-and-take between society and the individual person. Each one should be able to trust the other.

This third symbol of the fifty-ninth five-fold sequence extracts, as it were, a common element from the two preceding scenes. The Keyword here is RECOMPENSE, i.e. a compensation for a well-done performance — a balancing of accounts.

Mercury -

KEYNOTE: Total commitment to a transcendent goal.

A convent is a place made available by a community which believes in the possibility of reaching a world-transcending state of consciousness. It is made available to individuals who may be variously motivated. To some it is an escape from the intolerable pressures of family and society; to others it represents the possibility of pursuing in peace a spiritual ideal to which the whole being aspires and is totally dedicated. The important point, in this phase of the cyclic process, is that the existence of a convent expresses another aspect of the relationship between the society (its religion and culture) and the individual. In the preceding symbol society rewarded the individual for a noble performance in its service; here society accepts the fact that beyond its daily normal patterns of behavior and commitments, another way of life exists which, in a higher sense, also has social value. In the old Hindu society dominated by a rigid caste system, the ideal embodied in the sannyasi — the wandering holy man or yogi meditating in a forest or a cave, who had entirely given up all that caste implied — was seen to be the very culmination of the social process.

In this fourth stage symbol we see the paradoxical nature of the social process operating more strongly than ever. This derives from the fact that man's nature contains in seed the possibility of overcoming and transcending itself in acts of complete denials and of surrender to a "higher" Law or quality of being. All spiritual techniques are indeed paradoxical. Rigid discipline conditions pure inner freedom. The final goal is the attainment of TRANSCENDENT SECURITY.
