Music Alchemy Rides Again – Show Me The Good!

Standard

Astrology is powerful. Once I began studying my own chart almost 4 years ago I knew I would never use the word the “coincidence” again. In a neutral sense co-incidence is fine, it literally means incidences happening in relation to each other or at the the same time. However, since the word is weaponized to discredit real phenomenon let’s leave it alone. There are many more tools at hand and available language to describe the process of being a super-sensible sentient human and co-creating our world as we go. Every living moment, not just when awake, we are creators designing our personal universe. I wrote a piece in early March 2017 that I have not published yet that would explain what I discovered about my sleeping hours. It will be posted soon because in that article, which I am still editing, I describe my activities during sleep and what I thought was occurring. I have always had an active dream life but then I discovered upon awakening that particular morning exactly who and what was using my energy, identity and will with my consent, but not in my design. I immediately removed and revoked my consent to be used by and for anyone other than myself and for my own highest purposes. Once I did that, peace returned to my chaotic mind space and within my relationships where discord seemed to be having a party.

I have been muted, in a sense, of late for the past six months. In my silence I was formulating a new universe that I needed privacy to create and not share until the baby was gestated, so-to-speak. If you know about sonograms, people take pictures of the womb baby before it’s born. It seemed the thing to do 30 years ago and is widely used today. But, the process of sonograms to see what is an interesting scene of the unborn baby, has the effect on the baby of  blowing a foghorn into their ears within a distance of micro-inches. How would you like to have a foghorn blown into your ears from such a close distance? I wouldn’t. I imagine it’s pretty upsetting, not to mention, most likely obliterates their peaceful developing frequency at that. Anyhow, I don’t think it’s a good idea to peek inside where I can’t fit and is not my domain. You just have to wait! What’s wrong with waiting? I love waiting…zen helps me do that. But now, the baby is born. You can see it and talk to it, interact and learn all about it, even hold it.

Say hello my new universe! Welcome to my movie, my life of creating harmony within the reach of my voice and within the reach of my energetic life force to a community of interest! This is my first post in and about my new universe. All my other articles are still viable, they are channels of information as well as opinion. But now, I have a better view of the landscape and so my perceptions are broader, more mature. The same thing happened with my songwriting. My first penned effort in 1997, “Walk The Wall” was no less channeled than my latest  published album in 2016 “Another Dimension”. I’ve written lots since I published Another Dimension but no albums have been compiled since I took a “retirement” from my music career and decided I would be a writer last fall. Once I can integrate those elements, which is inevitable, the new records will come. First I had to integrate my Ascendant, Sun and Moon signs. I did that with a song called “Magnificent”. To give you a glimpse of that process I will quote the verse and chorus;

 

(backstory: Cancer Sun, Libra Moon, Capricorn Ascendant – the Cardinal “cross”)

Magnificent
c.2016 Music Alchemy
“My Sun is not online, my Moon is divine
I love all my houses all at once, to me they are all divine.
My Ascendant, you are magnificent! But, you’re almost too much.
Too many people, why can’t we all be one?”

 

So, back to astrology. I prefer to have a “healthy respect” for these powers, forces, energies and not be afraid of them. I’m so sentient that they “get” to me when I’m not looking. So, that’s why I started looking. We all are affected whether we are cognizant of it or not. There are indeed good aspects, but it’s the “we” part that makes it good. I’ve survived the recent tribulation we all just navigated to tell you about it.

Since the run-up to the New Moon, barely 48 hours prior and ever since, I have had to out-maneuver scorching Sun rays, wrestled with a surprised Pluto in my first house and won the match by pulling a disappearing act. I confronted Saturn about abusing Chiron and won the argument by holding space then reconciled them. I dodged Uranus’s lightning bolts successfully and redirected them to a hidden enemy who was successfully outed by Eris, (thank you Eris). I won a staring down contest with Mars who was trying to be a bully but overplayed his hand. I gave Neptune a hiatus, dismissed its forces for a friend who needed a well-deserved break which was authorized by Venus. I ejected a serial killer Moon beam out of the car and held my ground so I could eat ennobled food; which I was able to do a short time later. I wrestled Rahu to the ground to put him in his place using Ketu’s wisdom – it was a tie! (no surprise there!) I had Jupiter called to the carpet for his know-it-all attitude using reverse psychology and honesty until he decided to go into therapy.

Whew! It’s been a busy minute and I’m not even a fighter! It’s all attitude. It’s all trust. I fail with the Trust sometimes…I falter, I stumble, shake it off, get up again. I am convinced in what I know from my own internal compass, from the Guardians who watch over me and inscribe my every thought, word and deed, from the consistent application of the 12th dimensional platinum shield, from meditation on Source and most of all, from my awareness of what exactly is my reason for being here. Glad to be alive. Belly breathe now. Carry on…#letsdothis

What Does Your Transit Sound Like?

Standard

In a previous article I spoke about this, I found the song of the Leo New Moon. Organ Grinder in Search Of Monkey

This lovely astrologer Barbara Goldsmith has just come out with more music and astrology facts. Enjoy!

 

Organ Grinder In Search Of Monkey

Standard

This sounds fair. Leo is emanating as we speak.The Sun. And regal Regulus the Star.

Below I wanted to post this text to give a sample of a decent labor law. Regulus is here. Mars is going into Sagittarius taking no prisoners. I do not participate in politics, I am an academic. I offer this as a timely example of how this plays out. I think Mars is giving Saturn positive support, he’s the warrior for the king Regulus. Rock on Leo!

From the web:  “On the 29th of July a re-generated parliament (Regulus) came up with some structure (Saturn in Sagittarius) to harmonize within the country the foreigners, international labor laws.  “Ankara approved Thursday a new labor law specifying conditions under which foreigners can work in the country. According to the law, foreigners with long-term residence permits or work permits for at least eight years would now be able to apply for permanent work permits. Those with permanent work permits would be granted rights similar to Turkish citizens. However, they would not have the right to vote or get elected, work for civil service and do military service. Also, foreign students at Turkish universities would be allowed to work on condition that they get work permits from their employers. The Ministry of Labor and Social Security will also establish a system to meet foreign employment demands. An international labor head office within the Ministry of Labor and Social Security will also be established, according to the law.

I love astrology and we are in a beautiful position to soak in, TO RECEIVE, as a new moon is conducive to. What we are soaking in during this new moon is the upright energy of Regulus and the Leo Sun, and Mercury holding on the edge, Mars, stretching out the last bit of Scorpio.

So, I am writing a song. It was all too obvious and one of my very first experiences where my conscious mind was observing this songwriting process as a witness. I was comfortable and laughing because unusual, yes, like deja vu only in real time, you aren’t going back to anything, you are observing the present moment in parallel to the moment. Nice. Superpowers. Check.

Here is the song “bones” if you will. At first I wanted to lead with Mars which is B. But my progressions ended up in Saturn, one of which is F#. So, I fiddled with my charts looking for clues. Literally, I feel like a lock-picker.

“I’m just a puzzle soldier picking the locks”  Polina speaks of the New Moon – be small

Banging at the piano….sharpened pencil, clean paper, writing what appears to others as hieroglyphics, and suddenly, after a long period of silence, (I’m not kidding) my computer randomly plays in my playlist a practice tape I made for flamenco and pop rhumba style music. It is blazing along and I realize I am in that key, only it’s E not B. Okay, so I play along with my practice tape that I have looping and looping and I discover the Lead is The Sun, not Mars. The Sun, in line with Regulus is leading the parade followed by The Moon in shadow of this blazing spectacle. Then Mercury, who is SO READY to get into Virgo is expanding in his voice, he is third. Mars also holding at 29 degrees, resonates and leaves a yummy taste in your mouth. He is 4th not in dignity, but in the progression. This music I am writing and recording right now. I will upload the track when complete, today hopefully. You can hear what this new  moon sounds like. It is indeed beautiful harmonious music of the spheres lead by the Sun. Add to astrology forecasts what the key is. In other words, what is the frequency? I now can do this. Thank you ALL THAT IS.

Listen to Mimi! Chiron Retrograde

Standard

Chiron retrograde now is a grand ending to my waning Chiron return, which was over the top! Just as Neptune retrograde is like the tarot card reversed, Chiron retrograde is a review of recently healed wounds which are healing over to functional state. I would think by Chiron Direct in December I will be 100%.  It was a very long process, 2 1/2 years. If you persevere, you will get through it. Keep on. It won’t kill you and the loss of the density  is palpable. It is at times a shock but in a good way, still a shock, you will change depending on the level of healing. Mine was super deep, of necessity, and I can climb out of the cave  that I have been in since February now that Chiron is in retrograde. It’s really amazing. I know it’s not DONE, but this part of the process I can say with a huge sigh of relief, it’s over now. I feel ready to stand up at least and shake off the residue, the minor sweat of the last few pulses.

The very last pulse was a few days ago. I will describe this experience because I knew I had mastered a lesson and the empowerment I felt by solving my problem without looking outside of myself, was quietly triumphant.

I have been very sensitive lately and having inspiration in nutrients for my triangle being. I began to feel outside the gates, outside the village, I could see but not touch. I swirled in a pool of potential and lightning strikes and thunder were frequent but dull. Like watching television, which I never do, but it felt like that, the zombie flotation simulator. But inside the pain was escalating, it would not be ignored. Flashes of injustices startled me and I had to look at it. Stare at it, damnit! I was afraid but the fear was blocking my well. I saw a deep well and I knew it was my own water, to love however I wanted to, to give it away and share more love wherein, the well was full again. But it is dark and lots of unknown to wonder about. Suddenly every little drop in the well mattered and I wanted to get to it and drink. But the pain…omg. Like a knife inside my heart squeezing the life force out of me. WHAT IS IT? WHAT DO YOU WANT? I broke. Hot salty tears flowing like damn burst and I knew I better act quick. My witnessing self was trying to help. I drew a long hot borax magnesium baking soda bath and I cried all my tears into the water until I was exhausted. Like I said, it’s over now. Here is a poem I got a few months ago and I keep coming back to it. It comforts me.

LOVE SUPREME

NOISE, it’s been played, had it’s heyday, it’s moment in the Sun.
White noise, scrambled eggs, gyro scope, deep well fills with water.
Here comes the water. It’s not just rain, it’s tears.
Oh, the horror of those years!
The factuals and actuals, fractals and spheres
The cover of darkness shattered by those tears.
Distorted words restored by lovers of truth with the sword wielded by the warriors of THE VIOLET FLAME.
The nervous nebulous sphere of trauma embodied in us…
BEHOLD! THE SPHERE TURNS TO GOLD!
The alchemy of music sweeping, calling on the Guardians, crying out to Joy, saying inside “It’s over now! You are safe! Be at peace!”
Love rushes in. Creative destruction is Love Supreme.

The new moon will be my COMPLETION cleansing. By my actual birthday which coincidentally is ON the Cancer Full Moon on the 19th of July, I will present myself to the world a changed woman, infinitely stronger and wiser, celebrating life in real time. so much love…

Mardi’s Triple Play

Capricorn as Ascendant Aspirant

Capricorn, cardinal earth sign, struggles as life throws one obstacle after another into his path.  But everyday that he remains committed to the belief that he was born to succeed in a big way, his character is strengthened. There are, no doubt, many days when Capricorn’s light is barely flickering.

russianwheel

Russian wheel

Capricorn builds solid character through his commitment to keep going despite relentless pressure. By never giving up hope, he eventually makes success possible for himself and for the world.

Capricorn comes to be known for his integrity, achievements, and genuine sense of personal satisfaction.  Through his struggles, he comes to symbolize leadership, authority, work, self-discipline, self-sufficiency, and, most importantly, self-control. Capricorn is routinely challenged to stand alone and prove himself to himself. Once he passes that test, applause and external approval of any kind become meaningless in terms of the life decisions he makes.  Because he intends to succeed and because he knows that self-control is required, his behavior reflects his intentions, not his emotions.  Fear, anger, jealousy, and self pity do not motivate him.  Despite all pressures, he takes the next well-thought out step on his path to achievement.

As a Capricorn’s personal power over himself grows, and his knowledge widens, the possible paths he can choose to follow narrows, until ultimately he chooses nothing.  He simply does what he must do. What Capricorns frequently must do is to become a business owners, a captains of industry, prime ministers, archbishops,  chiefs of police, CEOs, or the supervisor.  Ultimately they must lead, as life has lead them to a place where following would betray everything they’ve become.

Cancer as Sun Heart-Mind

Cancer is a cardinal water sign.  Every water sign feels their way through life, but none feel as deeply as Cancer.  The crab with its hard outer shell protecting the delicate body within symbolizes Cancer’s need to protect her feelings.  It takes a long while for her to recover once her feelings are hurt.

Cancer is protective of her home and family.  She can be deeply attached to the past, interested in genealogy, preserving family albums, and keeping family members close.  Staying connected to her roots provides her with nourishment for her soul and a foundation for herself and her children.  Within her home she is stable and secure.

Cancers are ruled by the moon.  Their moods tend to fluctuate with lunar cycles confusing others and especially her self.  But Cancer rides the waves of those moods instinctively knowing that her inner life depends on staying connected to how she feels.  She has a deep need for emotional intimacy with a partner but fears the vulnerability that entails.  It’s a huge dilemma for a Cancer.  Trust is always an issue but walking around forever inside her hard protective shell starves her soul.  A committed relationship devoid of real intimacy is a bad compromise.

Cancer’s relationship with their mom and their children is an unusually strong bond.  Cancer moms care for the emotional needs of their children.  They feel what their children feel and can have a hard time letting go when it’s time for them to fly.   But they provide what their children need most even as it breaks their heart

Libra as Moon Emotional Intelligence

Libra is a cardinal air sign dedicated to peace, love, and the arts.  Libra exerts a soothing effect on the world.  Visually there is something very beautiful about her.  Her words are kind even when she is angry or attempting to get her way.  She is highly sensitive to her environment both visually and emotionally.  A piece of art wrongly placed, a cluttered corner, ugliness, harsh words, or conflict of any kind can feel like an assault on her nervous system and soul.  When it comes to balance and beauty she is highly sensitive and refined.

Libra’s sensitivity to harshness tempts her to avoid conflict and to accept peace at any price.  She tends to compromise when she should be asserting herself, to shut down when she should be speaking out.  Ironically one of Libra’s great strengths is resolving conflict through active participation.  She is very talented in her ability to understand both sides of any issue.  She can see the strengths and weaknesses of all arguments.  She is able to suggest solutions and compromises that all can agree on.  And she is able to deliver her suggestions with a style and grace that calms, soothes, and makes everyone feel that they’ve won.

In relationship, Libra requires a sense of equality with her partner.  Subservience or domination can never provide Libra with the sense of cooperation and inner peace that she requires.  Compromise works for her within limits.  Within a relationship, schedules, work division, and how she spends her free time can all be negotiated, but the essential nature of who she is can never be compromised.  If her partner challenges her core essence she has no choice but to “let the lines be drawn” and to fully participate in any battle that ensues. And she must win.

I don’t even need to say anything else. I feel like you have read my mail by reading these descriptions of the signs. There is no doubt in my mind, this is not random or even an intuitive reading. This is geometry and also music because the planets have frequencies and unique musical scores just like we do. They are within us and without. We don’t control either, we nurture within to keep our being in balance. If that’s the only thing I do, I am Golden. It is a self-sustaining machine otherwise. John Lennon was right; all we need is Love. Love is expressed wholly, in the tri-une manner expressed by our Ascendant, Sun and Moon signs. So, here is mine, a bit embarrassing only because the self-reveal isn’t that personal to you, but amplifies some things about myself I was self-conscious about not realizing it is a trait of my zodiac sign. How freeing! It’s not personal – ego-wise – at all. It’s by design and somehow acceptance is easier. It Just Is. Namaste. *notice on the Russian Zodiac Wheel my Sun Cancer is the numbers 432. There are no coincidences…have a great week! Mardi
