Summer Solstice Time to Shine

Musical Call To The Ancestors  ENTHUSIASM : Musical Call To The Ancestors Traditional Solstice Song. I kept hearing in the collective voice something about how we needed to connect to our ancestors. Our memories are full of latent invisible vibrations that music is designed to highlight and enable. So here is my invitation to my noble descendants, the ones who hold me dear unbeknownst to me and in fact each and every one. That kind of reverence is the most sacred as it cherishes the deepest part of our own selves, hence “sacred”. The idea for this came from my persistent questioning of the oracle, the IChing ideograms, the 64 Divinatory Figures, these are archetypes as the tarot only more math. My question was, what am I to do in Music? Answer was YU ; Enthusiasm, what I call God-Breathed. Yu in name. Yu is womb, the receptive on the lower trigram. The trigram above it is Thunder, the creative element, obviously ripe for something wonderful to happen and in this instance YU is saying get the people together to be cleansed by the music which was known to purify the people’s feelings from the last year. It was a joyous time to invite the Ancestors and prepare splendor, everywhere beauty and make note of the numinous. It was like a bridge to those human representatives in the outer regions. They have passed on but it is possible to communicate with them in this way.

Blood On The Ground

Blood On The Ground

I know that where ever I have been, where ever I go, I leave a mark on that place, tracks, if you will. This song is about realizing that much blood of humanity has been spilled on the ground. Some of this Blood could be those you knew, or someone in your family. They are never forgotten but something tells me it will be discovered that even one drop of blood is a fractal of the whole person. And if so, then the blood on the ground is a person and if it was me, I would want someone to ask me how I was, if I was okay, or to just acknowledge that it happened. So I did ask them. No matter where they are, they have a right to live. biggood

Maybe me bringing them along and listening to their stories will make them feel better. Not alone. It may sound far fetched, but, is it really beyond the scope of reality?

lyrics

Blood on the Ground

There’s Blood on the ground
I can feel it, can you feel it underfoot?
I’m leaving tracks everywhere I go
It doesn’t matter, who’s gonna know?

Take them along, listen to their stories.
Ask them how they’ve been.
Take them along, listen to their stories
They have a right to live.

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…

According to Carl Jung:

 “…it is not for the frivolous minded and immature; nor is it for intellectualists and rationalists. It is appropriate only for thoughtful and reflective people who like to think about what they do and what happens to them-a predilection not to be confused with the morbid brooding of the hypochondriac.” C.G.Jung page xxxiii Zurich 1949. On Page xxv he refers to a previous translation by Legge (p41) and refers to ” the “spiritual agencies” acting in a mysterious way, that make the yarrow stalks (or coins) give a meaningful answer. These powers form, as it were, the living soul of the book…a sort of animated being, the tradition assumes that one can put questions to the IChing and expect to receive intelligent answers.”xxvi

Book of Changes is similar to doing Tarot and Astrological Predictions. The archetypes are what is represented and according to the above description; there are spiritual agencies at work. The significant difference I think with I Ching is that it takes literally years if not decades to really “get” it. Even then, what you think you “got” had even deeper or more obvious, as the case may be, meaning. I am using these decades of study in this way. I would not offer it otherwise. I know a lot of readers are out there of all persuasions; tarot, astrological, angel cards, astro-tarot etc. You would assume that those who are offering these services for money actually are worth the effort to make the money pay the money and live with the reading. That’s what it boils down to. You must use discernment in all things even in hiring readers to give you the occult situations and hidden emotions that you need to know about. It isn’t for luxury or to find out the next fashion trend anymore. I think people know the times are serious and genuinely need some indication of what is going on so they can proceed intelligently.

This video on #25 Embroiling talks about this, that if your perception is off you will make mistakes. It’s so common it’s redundant, yet, how important!! Get a reading and find out what is happening in your world so you can know what are the most prudent actions to take. I wish everyone all the best.

Mardi’s Triple Play

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.

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
