4th New Moon of Year IV ..
अश्विनी अमावास्य [ashvini amavasya] .. into अमावास्या [vaishakha māsam] the lunation of the contemplation of one's improbable, but nevertheless possible transformation ..
Thursday April 23, 2020, at 4:26 am (GMT + 2), it is New Moon day, वैशाख अमावास्या [vaiśākha amavasya], the beginning of the 4th Moon of the Year IV (2 + 0 + 2 + 0) .. वैशाख मास [vaiśākha māsam] .. opening the Second Moon of the Wind Spirits ..
.. this year, वैशाख अमावास्या [vaiśākha amavasya] transits through the नक्षत्र [nakshatra] of अश्विनी [ashvini] .. traditionally, अश्विनी [ashvini] commemorates the time of daring and fragile beginnings, .. of courageous endeavors and distraught forward flights .. causing beautiful surprises and panic thoughts .. great calls and impulsive skids ..
.. वैशाख [vaiśākha] is a नक्षत्र [nakshatra] straddling Libra g, तुला [thula], and Scorpio h, वृश्चिक [vrishikha], it expresses a temperament as frank as mixed .. as open as aggressive .. as relevant as provocative .. as enthusiastic as resentful, .. in short, a temperament which depends too much on external conditions and others, in the expression of its thoughts and feelings .. shall we know how to seize the opportunity of this improbable, but yet possible change, with so much compulsive energy in us and around us ? ..
.. वैशाख अमावास्या [vaiśākha amavasya] announces the Full Moon of Wesak .. the lunation which celebrates the process of a total change of perception, .. of a divine alteration of the senses .. a moon which puts in mystical trance, some of us , .. and put in a sobering-up cell, others of us ..
.. Tibetan Buddhism calls this process : the emergence of the « clear and penetrating vision », .. projected in a complex and absurd world, which suddenly becomes transparent or even logical, .. understandable to the point of becoming delightfully organized and spicy .. this vision is an altered state of mind ..
.. this phenomenon is called : a བར་ དོ་ [bardo] .. or an अनारभ्यत्व [anarabhyatva] .. an intermediate and disturbing state, which highlights a choice between two movements, .. between two processes : between death to oneself, or rebirth of oneself .. ordinarity of the existence , or magic of the being .. inertia of any condition, or transmutation of the feelings .. blindness of the feelings, or illumination of the thoughts .. the Wesak is, in a way, a choice of consciousness between materialist determinism and spiritualist emergence .. it represents the sensation of a magical change in the substance of the being .. of a self-transcendence of the mind .. creating a capacity for vision through things, .. and beyond the duality of existence .. a discernment that sees the parallel realities behind the obscurantism of beliefs .. or the spiritual materialism of desires .. an empathy and a letting go that sees beyond the multiplicity of points of view and personal judgments, .. a « unified field of consciousness » beyond complexity ..
.. the Wesak is a divine « bug » .. a mind conditioning bug, which creates a clash in the psycho-sensory system .. a freeze frame .. a sublime self-recall and questioning of one's conditioning .. which in its own way, the shaken mind is observed and caught on the fact of its unreality .. the mind wakes up and becomes emancipated .. for a moment, the previous self-awareness could suddenly be feeling liberated, but desperate, .. enlightened, but disillusioned, .. denied, but abused by the past .. by being both more detached from the world and social conventions .. and even more connected with the universe and its vibrational field of consciousness .. the mind would suddenly become both the initiate and the sacrificed one at the same time .. the manipulated and the insurgent one, .. because the usual consciousness or intelligence is no longer up to handle the current or future existential situation ..
.. in Wesak, everyone is, in their own way, wrong and right .. everyone converges on a point of gravity .. and rushes all at once towards a real « black hole » .. the energy of the world takes us, like the flood of the Ganges गङ्गा, towards our destiny, towards a point of convergence of consciousnesses .. and inevitable bursting of old hopes .. towards a point of fusion of energies .. and a desirable dissolution of old beliefs, which now separate us of the vibratory unity of the universe ..
Short astrological reading for the 4th New Moon of April 23, Year IV, at 04h26 am (GMT+2)
with this new moon, the sky is untied, .. new agglomerates are created, .. an improbable but possible change is looming ..
.. conjunction 0 of Sun A with Moon E at 9° of Aries a, in House of II .. conjunction 0 conducting to a change of thought or lifestyle .. a conjunction 0 put into sextile 2 with the solar ascendant AS at 7°, with the Part of Fortune D at 7° and with Ceres O at 6° of Aquarius k, in House of XII .. this sextile 2 gives it a feeling of return of legitimacy or ideal abandoned in the past ..
.. Rahu ƒ at 8°R of Gemini c, in House of IV, in trine 4 with the solar ascendant AS and Ceres O .. Ketu @ at 8°R of Sagittarius i, in House of X, is therefore simultaneously in sextile 2 with the solar ascendant AS and Ceres O .. return to ambitions to be manifested .. return to the need of taking revenge on a thankless or unjust past ..
.. conjunction 0 of Sun A, at 9° with Uranus I, at 12° of Aries a, in House of II .. eccentricity and rebellion are exacerbated, provocation and outrage are common, but can cause real and significant damage, in a generally confined situation, .. the pot is under pressure .. burrs are easy ..
.. the Sun A in Aries a, in square 3 with Saturn H, at 8° of Capricorn j, House of XII .. causing irritability and mood swings .. susceptibility and allergies .. the mood is very busy ..
.. Mercury B at 27° of Pisces l, in House of I, in sextile 2 with Mars F, at 22° of Capricorn j, House of XII .. and Mercury B simultaneously in sextile 2 with Venus C, at 21° and Vesta L, at 18° of Taurus b, in House of III .. Venus C and Mars F are therefore in trine 4 .. joint ventures and new partnerships are possible .. contracts and alliances are easily undone and redone ..
.. Pluto K at 1° and Jupiter G at 2° of Capricorn j, in House of XI, in turbulent conjunction 0 and in friction with Pallas P at 5° and with Saturn H at 8° of Capricorn j, in House of XII .. claustrophobia of confinement or allergy to the imposed presence of the boring other ..
.. Neptune J at 26° of Aquarius k, in House of I, is in semi-sextile 1 with Mars F at 22° of Capricorn j, in House of XII, and in semi-sextile 1 with Mercury B, at 12° from Aries a, in House of II .. .. the family unconscious is conflicting again, the psychological manipulation of the parent or child are reactivated and exacerbated .. family issues and conflicts of authority are again in activity .. watch out for regressions of family constellations !.. Neptune J is the planet that energizes this Chinese Year of the Metal Rat, because it is this year in conjunction 0 and at the very position of the Constellation of the Rat for the Chinese, or of the Lizard for the Mediterranean .. Neptune J is the planet of the collective unconscious and of the tribe spirituality (or family spiritism), both representing how we interpret or guess what we do not know .. spirituality is the art of understanding what we do not yet know scientifically, god is a concept which allows to be used as a « joker » in a card game, .. and to represent symbolically by its omnipotence, what we do not know, .. or what seems to be totally opposed to our logic .. the collective unconscious being what influences a human being, without him knowing it, .. and without the community knowing it too ..
.. Chiron ∂, at 13° and Lilith €, at 16° of Pisces l, in opposition 6 and in friction with Juno MR, at 15°R of Virgo f, in House of VII .. Junon MR is currently the only retrograde star from the sky .. Juno MR must learn to manage alone his social situation of confinement, which she has in the past desired .. and manage alone the daily life of his existential contradictions .. and especially to understand and manage the tumultuous past of the couple or partnership .. the ego of Juno M makes her believe that by being alone, she will escape observation and criticism, judgment and denigration of the other's eye .. which is very childish on her part , because all the planets are so grouped in the Northeast part of the sky and are all in promiscuity .. nothing escapes their vigilance .. the other has therefore evolved, has Junon M evolved ? or purely and simply regressed ? ..
.. this new moon opens the time of Wesak, it is also called : the Flower Moon .. because of the significant weather changes it implies .. by the heat surges and the overactivity of insects .. by the frequency of thunderstorms and the variety of playful winds .. it allows an ideal pollination .. passing the flowers to explode with all their petals, pastilles and stamens ..
.. in tropical mode, this 4th New Moon is in Taurus b ascendant Pisces l .. it asks to set clear intentions, and to get to work .. to fertility ..
.. the trio: Sun A, Moon E and Uranus I being in Taurus b, gives it both a powerful power of realization, but also of upheaval .. of awareness, but also of rebellion ..
.. Chiron ∂ and Lilith € in Aries a, have the power of an eternal teacher and karmic agitator .. the old desires and contradictions are back, all exacerbated .. beware of danger !! ..
.. Venus C is in Gemini c, moderated by its conjunction 0 with Vesta L, .. Mars F is then in trine 4 in Aquarius k, beginning his slow emancipation from Saturn's H seclusion and from Pallas P, the lonesome she-warrior with no family and no friends .. the desire takes us to go out, to see the world again, to see other faces and to live other situations .. but for the moment the means are still lacking ..
.. Mars F is in semi-sextile 1 with Neptune J, the collective unconscious .. and in sextile 2 with Mercury B, the intelligence of emancipation .. slowly regains the immune power it had during the past decade, but it will still take her a lot of time, energy and skill to surf between the reefs of her distrust caused by her past addictions ..
