“To improve the external situation in the world, we must begin by accepting that world as a mother accepts her child; to improve our intimacies, we much extend the same benevolence to ourselves. The acceptance we must cultivate is the same: the emphasis remains on the inner world.
As Carl Jung pointed out,
“The upheaval in our world and the upheaval in consciousness is one and the same.”
We must come home to ourselves with a mothering acceptance, and so give birth to ourselves with a mothering acceptance, and so give birth to true emotion, the basis of all true intimacy.”
Pg. 129 Astrology Beyond Ego – Tim Lyons
The nitrogen in our DNA, the calcium in our teeth, the iron in our blood, the carbon in our apple pies was made in the interiors of collapsing stars. We are made of star stuff.”
– Carl Sagan
I am often confronted by Astrologers and critiqued. As I am not one, I am an esoteric student that has built a relationship with our planets in an extramundane way. As with Venus and Pluto, that pulls at us aware or at us very unaware.
Through logarithms, math, and aspects or otherwise.
For me it is my creative imagination, dreams, and myths. This is my formula or elixir.
I am forewarned by a dream that helped me understand this dynamic relationship. It is ancient, old as the light and the darkness, the male and the feminine or Gods and Goddesses.
Life and death, peace and war, power and truth all play in this drama in our souls, in the world and out in the cosmos.
It is a mystery that we all face… and we all must pass through this initiation of our evolution.
while back I had a scary dream. I was with a group of people. We were all running from evil monster zombies. The feeling was dread. We found a train and traveled to the country. It was horrid. The thought of death approaching was a sickness in us all. We found a cabin in the countryside. I had my white cat Mr. Po Po with me.
He ran from the cabin out into the darkness of the night. The zombies were there. The monsters were close. I had to run after my cat. Terrified I ran out into these monsters of chaos and fear beyond enduring. As I found my cat. I hugged him. I was confronted by the evil that pursued us. Everything stopped. I looked into death and he said this to me,
“I cannot hurt you with that cat.
You all run in fear and hate
Yet there in your hands is your love
I cannot touch you or harm you with love.”
was overwhelmed with dread, then fear, and then I felt only my cat’s love. I walked slowly back into the cabin and told the others what happened to Mr. Po Po and me. We all sat in a circle and held hands. We now knew what to do.
e sang a new song.
Pluto and the underworld.
Pluto and death.
Pluto and nuclear weapons.
Pluto and power of the underground.
Pluto and transmutation.
Pluto loves Persephone!
Orfeo ed Euridice, Wq. 30: Act II, Scene 2: “Torna, o bella” (Chorus)
Translated… I hope this is correct!
“Come to the realms of bliss,
great hero, tender husband,
rare example in any age!
Amor returns Eurydice to you;
already she revives and recovers
all the flower of her beauty.”
