Saturn represents the view from the graveyard, and when Saturn, Mars and Pluto meet in Capricorn in 2020, it is time to ‘bring up the bodies’. We find ourselves in a time of disclosure and revelation, take a deep breath, the good news is, this is when collective awareness can begin to transform itself into consciousness.
What is a lunar occultation? This phenomenon occurs when the Moon passes between the earth and a star or planet, temporarily obscuring it from our viewi. It’s an eclipse of sorts, and requires an exact alignment in several different celestial planes. Because they are unified on more than one plane of measurement, these occultations are more than a simple conjunction and deserve an elevated delineation. We interpret regular eclipses as endings and beginnings, seed times when circumstances and conditions are ripe for change and development.
In the words of Carl Sagan, we are 40%-star dust. It makes us think how we became 40%-star dust. Let us look with James Theodore Bent. Let’s look back in time when he was an archeologist. He found these sacred stone circles in South Africa. That’s right sacred stone circles in South Africa, and where the first humanoid was found. Our human adventure started 75,000 years ago in a place called Waterval Boven 4 hours North of Johannesburg, South Africa. In the mountains there are these stone circles, and there is a place called Adams Calendar. Why is this significant?
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.
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.
About the C*I*A
The Cosmic Intelligence Agency (C*I*A) is a network of astrologers and other cosmically minded individuals who aim to further understand and advance CONSCIOUSNESS* INTENTION*ASTROLOGY. We share a vision of the world soul, raising consciousness to the Anima Mundi, the universal energies and archetypal patterns that can be observed in the ceaseless cyclic movements of the cosmos. For millennia, humans have engaged with the cosmic sphere to seek meaning, guidance and inspiration. We continue this relationship to the cosmos as our focus and our Agency’s role in the evolution of consciousness.
