I must admit, I am not a fan of the black moon phase. There is something gloomy about it, like it has a taste of death to it. I am pretty good at doing nothing on dead moons though. Last night I ended up playing a game. It could have been Tetris, except it wasn’t. Not awfully fun to play, but it did it’s job. It took me out of the gloom.
I can’t blame all the gloom on the poor moon, by all means, it is a dead body after all. Maybe I should put my focus on Saturn-Pluto again, and tell them to not be so confronting and messing up my bliss all the time, pulling out all the dead weight from my closet, pretending to do what? Clean? I know what they are doing, they are conspiring against me.
So I wont give them more energy, and focus on the rather cosmic choir that we have going in Sagittarius instead. This newmoon landed on the Galactic Center. Or really, really close by. The Sag in me takes one step back and ponders where we are going and where we have come to. Where are we standing, spiritually? In Norway we have a princess, a real one, who one day stepped out of the masquerade of royalty and told the world that she wanted to work with healing, angles, channeling and auras. Everybody laughed. Us, the alternative people of the world, again were “we” reduced to a laughingstock. And I say “we”, cos “we” are one mass according to the media; if we believe in angles, guides, UFOs, OBEs, Pleiadians, acupuncture, homeopathy, healing crystals, tarotcards, obscure Gurus and not so obscure Gurus, healing and last, but not least, astrology.
Better not mention that you are into astrology to someone in your office. They might think you are stupid. That is the legal consensus concerning all types of alternative thinking. Hence, we are all reduced to naive, unaware, uneducated and simply stupid people. And mocking us publicly, is just as legal as looking down upon the guy who writes parking tickets. Sadly, but surely, the alternative business is the new freakshow.
And I know why. Let’s bring it back to astrology and Sagittarius and add in this tale, the not always so accepting Capricorn. It is because of Sagittarius that we are being mocked so sincerely. Who on earth can take that highflying, self righteous horceman, dancing with feathers and native americans, seriously? The Sag enters his dreamtime and comes back with a lot of interesting theories. He probably bounced into the great Galactic Center or the Great Attractor ( both points in Sagittarius) whilst dancing with wolfes, and took in a great deal of abstract and intuitive knowledge. Too bad it was filtered through his personal mind, conditioned by what is now the growing consensus alternatively speaking. A consensus where there is no ground for making a consensus, yet. Cos we don’t know, do we? How can anything abstract be conceptualized by the concrete mind. Maybe it can be done in music. Or in a painting. But somehow words will always do this type of truth very wrong, as we see so clearly in the history of the Norvegian princess, bless her heart.
I can’t see her aired on television anymore. It hurts too much. You know, you can see that she faces the last deflation of the Sagittarian mind. She reaches its final frontier. There is nothing to explain, thus she should refrain from it. And the sneaky, creepy journalists, they know this. So they lure her into the matrix of ridiculous questions and know that they have trapped her. Because they know that when everything is said, there is still the big “I dont’t know how it works, it just does” left. And the mockers loves that.
Then they can strike down on her, and on everybody like her, and call us names that they themselves are the sole owners of . Charlatans. That is what they call us, the intellectual elite. Those who are so smart, that they wont be fooled by anyone. Or seek help from anyone. Should we care?
Yes. I think we should. And I think it is about time to take back actually. Go to the polaritypoint of the rather exclusive Sagittarius, Gemini, and learn how to create bridges where there exists a gap. But what does that mean?
Well, mostly it is about language and how we use it. How can the princess for sure know that it is angles that she sees? No wonder people thinks she is a religious looney, when she is using such a language. Is she trying to sell? Are we using our alternative lingo, because we are aiming our services to those who hopes and believes in the same things?
Part of the critics here in Norway has been about her aiming and targeting herself to the lowest caste of our society. Those easily fooled ones. You know who. And my question is thus, who are the critics aiming at pleasing? A little digression, but hopefully it gets clearer and clearer that the so-called intellectuals of our planets are mostly trying to outsmart each other. So smart, so cynical vs so stupid, so compassionate.
To get back to my original thought concerning the right use of language. What Sagittarius needs to learn, and maybe especially in these times, is when to speak, how to speak and generally learn the noble art of knowing who you are talking to. Our princess, with Jupiter-and-Neptune both in Sagittarius, is still an apprentice. Maybe will she have trouble gaining the respect of her Saturn in Gemini, that so conveniently opposes her Jupiter, because when all is said, we are still left with the mystery. And when the journalists are answered with an answer. Well, you know the story, the hounds are let loose.
Recently, the current superstar of healers, mr. God-I-Forgot-His-Name was in Norway (don’t worry. It will dawn on me eventually and hopefully before I am done writing this article) and gave a lecture for the students at the faculty for psychological studies in Oslo, a highly controversial undertaking that took a lot of heat. They themselves (the psychologists), have been ridiculed for ages, and with this history fresh in mind, they allowed him to speak about healing, but not to demonstrate it. Ah, Eric Pearl, it came through,that is his name. So mr.Pearl gave a lecture, and managed to persuade them to just a tiny little, teeny weeny demonstration. The girl that he aimed his powers on, said that is tingled. “yes” was Eric’s reply. “but we don’ t know why”.
So the question is: really, do we know why two plus two is four? I mean really, really. Everybody knows that it is four. We can see it,we count it. But we don’t know why,so no worries, Eric, nothing seems to be certain anyway. Seemingly on a more metaphysical level, everything is upside down. Two and two can be four , but not necessarily. It can be the same two that are in another spot at the same time, appearing to be four, but actually are just two. Crazy, yes. But actually it can happen.
Do not mention this to the hard-core old fart physician though. The traditionalists. They will spew their castrating fire on you before you get to say whatever comes after “astrologer”. That is what they do. Castrate. Take your nuts so that theirs can grown bigger. What does a man do without his nuts? He is nothing. Reduced , and unable to impregnate the world with his ideas. Saturn did the same with his father Uranus, the sky god. And to many, many more.
Tender is not the Capricorn who sees a chance to catch a Sagittarian out flying on his abstract flying carpet. The collective demands a consensus. An idea needs to be founded on something that works and that has stood the test of time, just like psychology once needed maturation. And the alternative movement, if can call it something, is so far from a consensus idea about what is what. The esoteric understanding hasn’t matured enough to be a part of bigger world. Most people are either religious (counting the new-age-religious people) or nihilists.
We still have no brigde between “God” and “Science”. Astrology too suffers from lack of really understanding why it works. All we know, those of us who have been fascinated for years, is that it takes us out of our comfortzones and makes us question reality, seeking that very link. Because it seems to work like a clock measuring real life events.
I think the next Jesus will be a Gemini. Or many. And they will all aim at a understanding of how to behave towards eachother, even when we disagree or are deeply triggered. If we personally have no idea of what people are suggesting, is it to threatening to listen? We can’t own truth, this goes for both parties.
Just after the princess launched her glossy, new book about angles and auras, she managed to piss off so many intellectuals that it was hilarious. One person had a very good point though, and a point that gives a clue to where Sagittarius often goes wrong. She said; “what freaks me out is that I am being forced into accepting a paradigm that has some good points, but so many idiotic ones, at least from my point of view. If I go for it, I have to go for the whole package, accepting all kinds of fluffy theories about past lives and angles appearing at my bed at night, smelling like roses” (apparently the princess recognized an angle by the smell of roses filling up a room)
Obviously both sides of the debate needs to learn how to communicate better, mocking simply wont do no good. When I say I am an astrologer, people ask; “do you believe in it?” Funny question for me, but I do understand where they come from.
Maybe this understanding can create a new arena where we can stop the constant creation of gaps and start to grow. Sagittarius can be both separatists and racists. Like we all can, struggling to have our consensus be the only consensus.
This is a new moon. And I wish for a bigger mind for all of us, one that can create a more non-dual perspective.
