Immanency Revolution

Further and further away from the Earth we walk, as technology seduces our mind with unlimited access to selfies, reality TV, instant access to the inner twittering of another’s mind and the countless distractions that colonise our increasingly diminishing attention; as mechanisation of food means that we can grow pizza’s on trees; as urbanisation spreads like cancer across the land, suffocating the very land we need to survive; as materialistic rationalisation encourages further disenchantment of a world slipping deeper into a black hole, divorcing us from the life that feed true meaning; and as an addiction to the world of senses drives humanity to the brink of an environmental and psychological abyss.

Historically, there have been periods over our collective ‘evolution’, wherein the plight of the element of Earth rises to the fore front of consciousness, usually led by isolated, but confident, voices speaking up and out against those whose greed, detachedness and narcissism have persuaded others to fill their pockets without any long term vision or care for their consequences. And historically those voices have faded into the background as progress scalds their concerns and research as desire triumphs over perspective.

But something is different this time. It is not simply because of the earth making her voice heard, as the weather patterning continues to change in an accelerated manner; or because the massive growth in population demands to be fed in a manner that is unsustainable; or because the black blood of the earth thins at an alarming rate. No. It is because your body is unwell and you are finally starting to listen to it.

The days leading up to any new moon is called a balsamic phase and it symbolises a time of shedding that which is toxic to the soul so that a space is created for the new to be planted. Similarly, the time just before a dawn is that poignant in between moment that neither feels solid nor ethereal. This hypnopompic space is a profoundly clarifying environment where insight abounds in the form of omens, clearly showing the way forward, for those who take the time to ‘listen’. During this limbo time prior to the Immanency Revolution, your body has been talking. Loudly and clearly, even over that Rennie tablet you’ve taken to ignore the grumblings of your body!

Your tummy has not been right for some-time.  Unable to dine in a casual way, unable to consume poor quality foods, cheap alcohol, unable to ingest horse hormones to dull you to your cycle, resistant to antibiotics, sensitive to wheat, gluten, sugar, refined foods, unwilling to eat traumatised animals reared in the dark for the sole purpose of slaughter, the rise of awareness of food, nutrition and diet has been phenomenal. And it is not simply for your Instagram images.

Your body has been talking to you, if you take the time to listen. That voice in your head that tells you ‘don’t’ does not come from vanity. That voice that tells you you’ve had enough, does not come from guilt. That bloated feeling, that queasy feeling, that reflux taste, that ‘allergic’ reaction is your body telling you that it can no longer consume vast quantities of poison. When your gut tells you he/ she is not good for you; when their scent is off; when their touch does not feel ‘right’, do you really need to second guess what your senses are telling you?

But you live in a world that has taught you that only your mind has a consciousness. Your body cannot talk to you. You have been taught to ignore it, by driving it into the ground by excessive work in pursuit of money, so that you can just about sustain your life; by too strenuous a work out as you compensate for the increasingly sedentary life you have to live in front of a screen. You have been taught to hurt it by telling it is not skinny enough, too wrinkly, too thin, too unattractive, too untoned, too lumpy, too short, too tall, too brown, too blond… And then you feed it – too much, too little, listening to experts who know your body better than you do, who teach you to follow a universal system that works for everyone; feeding it with food incompatible with it, downing poison in bucket loads as you numb yourself to the reality that perhaps happiness does not exist where you want it…

And so your body has been trying to get your attention! To remind you that everything contains consciousness – every organ of your body and every morsel of ‘real’ food that you eat. It knows that it is the embodied material form of creation. It knows that it encases your true essence, your spirit, and as a sleeve that you wear, it moulds and shapes to the scripts and patterns that your soul needs to experience within this incarnation, and that it breaks down as you choose not to listen to the prompts that arise within your mind and emotional body, becoming physical as a last ditch attempt to get you to WAKE UP. 

As allergies, intolerances, sensitivities towards foods and beverages increases, as food quality en mass reduces, as the speed of life and the movement towards living solely from your head increases your detachment, as the unresolved emotional, mental and spiritual issues manifest as illness within your body spreads like a black hole sucking the life force from you mirroring the spread of illness through the earth, your body is trying to remind you to listen to the earth, to become more conscious of how you are treating yourself and by extension the earth, to remember the delights of being here and the soul that exists within all of matter. As the element of earth shakes, as the planet of earth quakes, as your body reacts in consort with the matter that arises from the earth, with its consciousness held within its chemical matrixes, you are being reminded that consciousness is not merely an anthropomorphic entitlement, that everything is teaming with ‘mind’, that underneath the surface of anything physical lies an animate spirit that bathes and permeates of the world of form. AI gives consciousness to computers; shamans remind you that rocks talk; your stomach screams at you not to poison it… everything, everything has an animated consciousness.

And it exists because of the presence of the Taurean archetype! This archetype is about to become properly enlivened and a revolution within the earth is afoot. Your entire body is shaking. The entire physical world is quaking. And the spirit within matter is being released, just as the spirit within the Earth is emerging all over the world.

Taurus, composed of two energetic conditions – ‘fixed’ meaning internal and Earth, meaning matter – merely accounts for the fact that your body is alive and teeming with spirit. This archetype reminds you that your soul is anchored within this physical realm of existence, encased within a physical body and subjected to all the aromatic delights that the world can offer – the wafting of a freshly brewed morning coffee; the freshly mowed grass on a cool sun kissed vernal morning; the crisp ionised air that surrounds a babbling and cascading brook and its fresh coolness that fills your lungs as you stop to breathe in the sounds of the water, as it crashes over the stones and rocks, eagerly chattering its way towards the contrasting quietness of the forest lake; the dense scent of vanilla-musk body spray that makes you feel dizzy as you linger in that first close embrace with a lover-to-be – can quickly wash you of your memory that you are to enjoy being in the world, but not being consumed by the world!! In other words, the full spectrum of your physical-desire nature, from the quintessential Taurean cliché’s – stubborn, sensual, determined… – through to the simple acceptance of just ‘Being’ exists because of the Taurean part of our collective consciousness.

And while physical-desire may be but one dimension of the Taurean archetype, so too is the need to learn the deeper spiritual lessons of desire wherein you can transform the energy of desire into spiritual aspiration, as encapsulated within that exemplary Taurean philosophy – Buddha’s Four Noble Truths. And it is through your desire-nature that you are kept fastened to the Earth Plane on a perpetual cycle of death and rebirth. Implicit to the teaching of most spiritual disciplines is the transmutation of desire into spiritual realisation by coming to terms with any unhealthy desire attachments which essentially keep you bound within your ego-mind and need to be eventually overcome.

It is within Taurus that your desires and your most materialistic impulses can be transmuted into aspiration through the light of illumination. Taurus was always considered by the ancients to be connected to the spiritual light held within matter, as evidenced by the plethora of astronomical phenomena surrounding this constellation. Known as the Light of the Bull in Akkadia, the constellation of Uru-Anna or Orion, the Light of Heaven or He who cometh forth as Light; the star Aldebaren (The Torch, Ptolmey), one of the brightest stars in the night sky found within the ‘Eye of the Bull’; the cradle of our consciousness, The Pleiades, used as a Native American Indian eye-sight test; the constellation Erdianus, the Light River; and finally, if you accept the hierarchical rulership within astrology, Venus as Lucifer, the Light Bearer, who is said to have dominion within Taurus, are all examples of the Light associations with Taurus, that puts those porculent desires into perspective!

Planets that you have within the sign of Taurus can teach you what specific dimension of your Soul is here to learn about the nature of desire. If you don’t have any planets within Taurus, then look to the house that Taurus is either on the cusp of, or intercepted by, to understand the arena of life wherein your desire-nature will be played out. The path of Taurus necessarily involves a strong will and strong choices, for desire has the habit of leading your attention outwards towards worldly concerns. Those Taurean planets are custodians of the light of knowledge, enabling you to tap beyond the seduction of the world of form, releasing all attachments and security desires, thereby enabling you to acquire enlightenment as you open the eye of the cosmic Bull, bathing in the light that cascades like devotional tears from it, cleansing and purifying your soul. Consequently, as you listen to those Taurean scripts, you can hear specific animistic voices speak to you, as each planetary archetype has its own language and perception, reminding you that matter speaks, matter lives, matter matters.

On the day of the forth coming Fixed Earth lunation, the solar day when you are called upon to renew your relationship to the spirit that exists within your body, Uranus moves into this earth sign for the first time in eighty four years, thereby enlivening and awakening us to the importance of our relationship to our bodies, our food, our animals, our plants, our environment and Nature as a whole. Further to the releasing and shedding that has prevailed within our sick bodies, we are being reminded to listen to our bodies, our food, our animals, our plants, our environment and Nature as a whole, as each has consciousness and each has awareness and each is communicating to you.

As a New Earth is birthed over the coming seven years, this Taurean Lunation serves beautifully for an initiation of intentions regarding your relationship to truly listening to what your body is telling you, not what your mind tells you about your body; to talk to the food that you are eating, thanking it for what it will do for you; to listen to what nature is telling you and being conscious of how you treat it, as it is an extension of your own body, keeping in mind that your body comes from the Earth and is inexorably linked to it.

I wish you a profound, gentle, conscious and compassionate relationship to your body, your food, your Nature and your World.
