Lunar Nodes, Dragon’s Head and Tail, Change Signs

Lunar Nodes, Dragon’s Head and Tail, Change Signs

In every astrology chart (individual, country, nation, event, etc.) there are two symbols (mathematical points signifying the relationship between the Sun, Moon and Earth) that look like headphones. These are the lunar or Moon’s North and South nodes or in Vedic astrology, the Dragon’s Head (Rahu) and Tail (Ketu).  The North node signifies the present/future dharma and the South node past abilities, people we knew and responsibilities that need gathering, tending and completing.

Burning Man Under the Silvery Full Moon

Burning Man Under the Silvery Full Moon

During Friday’s full moon, Virgo’s (9 degrees) solar festival, Burning May is in full swing in the Nevada desert. In the sky the nodes of the moon (North and South Nodes) change signs. The north node (our present/future dharma) shifts into Scorpio, and the South node (past which needs tending, completing, the Dweller on the Threshold) enters Taurus. For 18 months we move into a state of reorientation, learning to stabilize ourselves through that reorientation.

We All Become Scorpios

We All Become Scorpios

On Thursday, Mars enters Scorpio; sign of discipleship and of reorientation (into higher regions) for humanity—Hercules, who, through overcoming our Twelve Labors (signs) becomes the world disciple. With Mars in Scorpio we all become very serious personalities, with intense wants, desires and aspirations.

Venus in Cancer—Overshadowing

Venus in Cancer—Overshadowing

This is our last week of Leo. The Sun enters Virgo Wednesday. The month is overshadowed by Venus in the sign of Cancer. Venus is the Soul (star) of the Earth, where our God (Sanat Kumara) came from and these mornings Venus is the Morning Star. Mars is always in the news these days. But Mars is humanity’s past. Venus is our future. Returning to Mars is a retrograde action.

Leo—Lionhearted and Royal

Leo—Lionhearted and Royal

Happy Birthday, leo. Leo is the sign of friendship and fun, of children, games and self-identity through what one creates. Leo’s hair is a mane rising up from regal high forehead. The lion appears on the arms (logo) of many royal houses. Richard the Lionhearted re-captured the Holy Land.

The Retro, Meteors & the Full Moon

The Retro, Meteors & the Full Moon

Mercury retrograde is in full force. Reaching outward, we’re pulled inward. Unable to maintain “business as usual” for multiple reasons (the retrograde, solar activity/flares altering our electromagnetic field, proton streams of positive ions, the planetary shifts, Uranus/Pluto, the old reality attempting to override the new, etc.), some of us feel paralyzed with tiredness, exhausted from pain, weary with busyness, longing to slow down, rest a while, contemplate individual realities, ideas and perceptions. Instead, we experience disruptive change, things upside- down, and wonder where we’ll find the resiliency to maintain our balance.

We Hold These Truths to Be Self-Evident

Saturday, July 4, is the 239th birthday of the United States, commemorating the signing of the Declaration of Independence (the U.S. astrology chart has Aquarius moon—freedom for its people, by its people). Cancer, a liberating and initiating sign, is the “gate” where Spirit enters matter. Cancer receives and distributes Ray 3 (Divine Intelligence) and Ray 7 (new rules, new rhythms, new free nation under God). Cancer represents an intelligent freethinking humanity that can and must create right economics for the world. This means a policy of sharing, an opportunity for the U.S. when Venus (money, resources, possessions, etc.) retrogrades July and August in Leo (the heart of the matter). The United States has a unique spiritual task for the world: to lead humanity within and toward the light, accomplished by its people who must first awaken to this task, learn discrimination and be directed by the soul to assume the Herculean task of spiritual world leadership. Let us review the first words of our Constitution: “We the People of the United States, in order to form a more perfect Union, establish justice, ensure domestic tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general welfare, and secure the blessings of liberty to ourselves and our posterity, do ordain and establish this constitution for the United States of America.” Let us form that union together. The following is a review of the spiritual tasks for each sign. Read all the signs. They all apply to everyone.
