The Nature of the Beast

Why is it necessary to protest? Because protest brings out the nature of the thing being protested, so that everyone can see what it is. In tonight’s edition of Planet Waves FM, I consider the two charts that I’ve read for the shooting of Michael Brown and the subsequent protests in Ferguson, Missouri — one cast for midnight and another cast for noon, on the same day.

Planet Waves Daily Oracle for Friday, Aug. 29, 2014

Today’s Oracle takes us to the Capricorn weekly for Feb. 28, 2003

Astrology Blog: The Oracle, Weekly Horoscopes, Monthly Horoscopes.

What you’re wanting right now, or what you’ve suddenly discovered is true, may be scaring the shorts off of you. It is indeed a strange notion to feel an impulse to run from what you truly value. But the other side of this sensation is that the experience of truly valuing something or someone is an extremely daring prospect, because, as you have discovered so many times, you cannot always keep or possess what you value the most. Yet there is a way of looking at life, and of coexisting with life, whereby our values can be directed at building that which will last. That takes two things, really: vision and cooperation. Neither are guarantees of success. But we can be assured that without both, there won’t be much that will last till the tide comes in.

This is an ancient horoscope and by some miracle it is still relevant today. Experience the astrology as it happens, written by me weekly and twice monthly, plus your Moonshine horoscope by Len Wallick and Elizabeth Michaud. Here is how to sign up — and what you get.

Rise Above — The Sun’s Opposition to Neptune

Tomorrow at 10:33 am EDT (14:33 UT), the Virgo Sun opposes Neptune in Pisces just as the waxing crescent Libra Moon will be rising above the ecliptic. Holistically, the combination defines a moment for you to face whatever challenges may be yours, and rise above them as well.

Astrology by Len Wallick

Unless you are the carefree exception, it is likely you have been challenged by personal and/or public events lately. You may even have forgotten that responding to tests is what you do best. 

For you come from a long line of beings who have faced provocations (natural and otherwise) and defined themselves by the means of successful response passed on to you.

Even at this moment, wherever you are, whatever you are doing, the environment is trying your integrity on the physical and other levels. If you are where it is cold, your body is working to replace lost heat. If you are where it is hot, your body is working to shed excess heat.

Your every moment alive thus attests to your proficiency for reacting to the world appropriately so as to assure your continuity and define yourself in the bargain. The aspect of oppositions in astrology works (at least somewhat) along the same lines.

Planet Waves Daily Oracle for Thursday, Aug. 28, 2014

Today’s Oracle takes us to the Taurus weekly for Jan. 20, 2012

Astrology Blog: The Oracle, Weekly Horoscopes, Monthly Horoscopes.

One of the most deeply ingrained patterns involves sex and — more significantly — how we think about sex. Mars making its retrograde in the angle of your chart associated with pleasure and experimentation is also involved in the Virgo dimension. If you’re looking for why, so often, you have to think about whether you’re going to think about something, rather than just trying it as an experiment — look no further. There’s something for you in Mars retrograde about being comfortable with taking risks, and most of those risks involve how you think of yourself as a sexual being. Many people spend their lives seemingly trying to impress others with their purity, which is another way of saying with their hangups. There’s an old expression: free your ass and your mind will follow. Or is it really free your mind and your ass will follow? Actually, you can do both at once.

Dancing in the Streets

By Carlos Cedillo

This week, Thursday Aug. 28, 2014, otherwise known as 8 Tzikin/Eagle on the Mayan calendar, marks one full Tzolkin round since I began posting a weekly blog on Planet Waves. Here is a link to my first published article,  Time is a Holy Place, published 8 Eagle, Dec. 11, 2013.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

It is a good time to review everything that has happened since then as we are also coming up quickly to the end of the current Tzolkin round, 13 Ahau/Sun. (Ahau is spelled Ajpu in some Mayan dialects). This time period can feel like the days between Christmas and New Year’s Eve in the Gregorian calendar.

In fact, the day 13 Ahau (coming next Tuesday, Sept. 2, 2014) is often a day to be ‘Dancing in the Streets’. Finish up those lingering projects, clean up around the house, and welcome those unexpected visitors and radical new developments that will impact the next Tzolkin round.

We have felt, as a nation, an intense need for changes after the dramatic shooting of a young man in Ferguson, Missouri, by a police officer, and the subsequent militaristic response by police to the mostly peaceful protests that inevitably occurred as a natural response by that town’s citizens.

Despite the sadness of this event and other news — like the horrible new terror group ISIS in Iraq and Syria — most sensitive people now can see the origins of our woes, and that is that “fear itself” has too harsh a grip on the minds of our fellow citizens. The cops dressed as soldiers and those who support them are the ones who are most terrified of anyone who is an ‘other’, or an outsider from anywhere else.

Why else would they dress in gas masks, flack vests and helmets? Because they are fearful and ignorant of ‘the other’, they follow orders to beat and subjugate their fellow Americans. Only the officers most in touch with their humanity — which is a kind of brave intelligence these days — took off the military gear and marched hand in hand with the protesting citizens.

Planet Waves Daily Oracle for Wednesday, Aug. 27, 2014

Today’s Oracle takes us to the Pisces weekly for July 29, 2005

Astrology Blog: The Oracle, Weekly Horoscopes, Monthly Horoscopes.

So much is changing in the lives of others that you may be wondering if you’re missing some great opportunity. You do have an opportunity which is to rise to the occasion of an unusual situation in your working life that’s calling for your leadership and is in truth an opportunity for you to really shine. Part of holding your own life in a steady place is being able to adapt to the changes that others go through and I assure you that no matter what those might be your position is rock solid and you have it in you to be psychologically stable. Focus on what is important which includes plenty of time away from it all.

This is an ancient horoscope and by some miracle it is still relevant today. Experience the astrology as it happens, written by me weekly and twice monthly, plus your Moonshine horoscope by Len Wallick and Elizabeth Michaud. Here is how to sign up — and what you get.

Continue and Sustain – Venus In The Act

Venus in Leo continues and sustains yesterday’s big astrology with a fixed square to Saturn in Scorpio today (2:22 pm EDT/18:22 UT) and the same aspect to Mars in Scorpio at 11:46 am (15:46 UT) tomorrow. So, if you didn’t get it done yesterday, despair not. Rather, carry on just as Venus is doing.

Astrology by Len Wallick

Maybe you had to put aside getting things done in spite of yesterday’s encouraging conjunction of the Sun and Moon – this year’s Virgo New Moon. It’s okay. Perhaps you experienced delays or frustrations in spite of yesterday’s motivational Scorpio conjunction of Mars and Saturn. Do not beat yourself up.

Among the many things Venus in Leo can affirm, your value is foremost. If you’re reading this, you are here with us today. There is value in that simple miracle alone. Venus moving through fixed squares to yesterday’s power planets emblematically demonstrates how you should act to honor the pearl without price you truly are.

The key is for you to keep moving. Square aspects are resolved by action. Even though Venus is not normally associated with action, today and tomorrow would seem to be exceptions which, nonetheless, will require your active participation for the best possible outcome.

In order to keep moving, you must first take care of yourself. Getting as much sleep as you can, and eating as well as you are able are actions entirely consistent with Venus. Left unregulated however, those actions can become ends in themselves – the down side of Venus. That’s where you come in.

Planet Waves Daily Oracle for Tuesday, Aug. 26, 2014

Today’s Oracle takes us to the Libra monthly for Jan. 1, 2001

Astrology Blog: The Oracle, Weekly Horoscopes, Monthly Horoscopes.

Pay close attention to your beliefs about God. You may be caught in some ambivalence between God the benefactor and God the authoritarian, but these are more than mere notions. I would propose that even in the unlikely event you are an “atheist” this holds true. Humans are as hard-wired for religion as we are for language, and there is the presence of an energy in your life that is so bold and daunting you would be wise to confuse it with divinity. Fair is it to say that the universe is predominantly a reflection of our beliefs about the universe, and you’re in an important point where these beliefs are taking shape. From where you stand, it won’t be long before your thought structures manifest in the material world, and your true potential is enormous. Indeed, though recent years have been characterized largely by this elusive concept of potential, you are free to step beyond it. Yet if I only said that some great success is at hand, that would steal from you what I suspect that you rightly seek, which is understanding your actual inner process of building your life. The universe is inherently creative. Even “destruction” reflects this because it too is the work of a creative process, albeit one with a different agenda than love and freedom. If you stick to these two principles, you will find yourself on a rare and unswerving path of sanity, excellence and fulfillment.
