There is a term used in Astrology for when a planet dissappears into the brilliance of the Sun’s rays, it is combust! There is also “under the beams,” “in the rays,” “burnt,” and “cazimi” for when the planet is exactly in the heart of the Sun. This idea has a long history, one shining all the way back to the origins of our tradition. And for the most part, when a planet is “burnt” it is said to create great weakness to the planet in question.
The role of astrology is not to instruct, or even advise, but to describe what fundamentally underlies our circumstances, and to point to the consequences of what we decide to do going forward. Yet good astrologers have learnt one lesson that can help decisions for the future. We know that selfish manipulation of others may work for a while, but never succeeds in the end. It just makes matters worse. So, any imminent world crisis will not be resolved by narrow economic solutions, propped up by laws and assumptions, based on greed and hatred of anyone in the way.
Exploring Planetary Nodes in Astrology with Mark Jones
When the Virgo Moon reflects the light of the Sun in magical Pisces, literally anything can happen – especially when we tap into the mystical power of the imagination and conjure up from the depths of our psyche an enormous wave of faith and belief in ourselves that we can – and therefore do – create miracles.
When there are two Full Moons in the same calendar month, the second is called a ‘Blue Moon’. This Full ‘Blue Moon’ in dramatic Leo, on January 31st, is also a ‘Super Moon’, which happens when the Moon is closest to the Earth as Luna culminates (making this the second and last Super Moon of 2018). As a Super Moon* it also means tides will be strong again, with flooding, earthquakes and tsunami alerts all possible. Perhaps even more so in some areas**, as this second January Full Moon is also a spectacular Lunar Eclipse. And because it is also a total Lunar Eclipse – when the eclipsed Moon turns a light-refracting deep copper-red – it is therefore known as a ‘Blood Moon’. Excited yet? It’s a humdinger!
Following on from our previous Venus Star webinar – Aries in March 2017, we continue the series to honour the next Venus Star point which will be exact on January 9th 2018 UT (Jan 8th 2018). We have gathered again C*I*A Agents Arielle Guttman, Gemini Brett and Julija Simas for the 3 hour instalment.
The sensitive water element features strongly in this first Full Moon of 2018, which is also a numerological magical 11:11 portal. Crossing over this New Year’s threshold into Twenty-Eighteen could be quite a profound and demanding, emotional yet entertaining, shape-shifting affair. This Full Moon is also the largest of two Super Moons in a row, and a double whammy Moon-ruled, watery Cancer Moon, when intuition, impressions and perceptions could also be magnified,
When faced with obstacles and difficulties that appear immovable and insurmountable, especially in the arenas of information and long and short distance travel, truth and wisdom, it sometimes feels like time stands still and all we can do is hold our breath, count to ten, then breathe deeply and mindfully, all the while witnessing a world spellbound by distraction and karma. Indeed, the Lord of Karma, Saturn, is asserting mega astral attention as this year draws to close – and is a major player in the last Full Moon horoscope of 2017.
