The idea of astrological ages is based on the phenomena known as the precession of the equinoxes, whereby due to the earth’s wobble as it spins on its axis, the vernal point moves slowly backward through the zodiac constellations at a rate of one degree every seventy two years, spending approximately 2,160 years in each zodiac sign and completing a whole cycle in 25,772 years. Many Western astrologers believe that we have reached an important juncture and are about to enter a new age, the Aquarian Age, however this idea is hotly contested1. When does the vernal point actually enter the stars of Aquarius? While theories abound as to when this will happen, no-one has come up with a definitive date
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.
With Regulus about to move into Virgo, it seems so appropriate and timely as we consider a world ruled by powerful elites and societies ruled by money and power. Now we have Regulus move into the sign of service, resourcefulness, technology, skill and duty, as we consider waste, global resources, efficiency and how to get things working better. This shift seems timely to say the least. We are all called to a service of some kind, helping to shape a better world.
Leo is a Fire sign ruled by the Sun and Virgo an Earth sign ruled by Mercury. The shift from one to the other brings with it a new focus, a new energy.
Pluto and its Nodes, their planetary rulers, and aspects to these from other planets, correlate to the root structure within any birth chart. From that root, all else – the South/North Nodes of the Moon, their planetary rulers, and aspects to these points – are ‘birthed’ from that root. It’s like a tree that has branches where the root produces the trunk of the tree, and the trunk then produces branches with leaves. This core root and its branches within the birth chart is treated EQUALLY for it is the very structure of the chart itself
Without an awareness of the basic fingerprint of the cosmos, one will never have a true understanding of an interface between the pyscho-spiritual and the bio-material realms. With the awareness of this numerical cosmic fingerprint, one is inevitably lead to the realization that both the spiritual and material domains are indeed one and the same, operating at different vibrational orders, always seeking to achieve harmonic resonance.
As seekers of astrological wisdom we are often confronted by the bigger questions of why does astrology work. We know it works, we see it working in our lives and in our clients lives, in the world around us and in so many varied and profoundly interesting ways, yet it is hard to define exactly how or why it works, as not one single explanation will ever suffice. Something that has helped enlighten my journey of astrological understanding, of why the patterns and cycles of the planets continue to coincide with our lives, is the understanding of astrology as a dynamic fractal like system, set off at birth with its own unique formula and conditions, that then continues to unfurl and unfold as a never ending fractal like pattern of growth.
AGENT 1123, StarryTeller Gemini Brett presents the first episode in a series of: “Arts of the Chart,” a devotional dance with Astrology choreographed by the Sacred Sciences known as the Quadrivium: Number in Nature, Sacred Geometry, Musical Harmony, and Astronomy.
Whether you are new to the Starry Study or have been practicing for years or lifetimes, this journey is certain to be a blast.
In this first chapter, following a brief introduction of the mission, Cosmic Intelligence Agent 1123 breaks out the Compass and Square to address our first unanswerable question, “Just What in the Heavens is the Sun?”
A new paper, published by physicist Gregory Matloff, has brought the idea back into scientific discussions, promising experimental tests that could “validate or falsify” the concept of a ubiquitous “proto-consciousness field.” Matloff also pushes the controversial idea of volitional stars, suggesting there is actually evidence that stars control their own galactic paths.
Those who follow my writing know that I am deep into the art of healing. My love for astrology is beyond words, however, working towards healing people, there is a missing link in astrology or any other consciousness work, and that is the workings of the body and its energy. Talking about healing is nothing compared to finding a cure that works.
The energy of Chiron, the healer-redeemer, is in the air. I find this a most fascinating subject when thinking of humanity and our ongoing struggle to find peace, harmony and health. Life is such a paradox of tears and ecstasy, and embodying this conflict is the story of the Centaur. Chiron was the product of a rape and abandoned by his parents he had to set out alone to find his true power, until one day he got struck by an arrow dipped in poison that kept him in excruciating pain until his release into death.
