Full Moon in Aries: Seeds of Hades

What gives meaning to the eternal cycle of Life and Death ? Our time between emerging from the darkness of the womb and returning back to the dark and deep delves of Hades is what we can ever have. Life, death and rebirth. The Fates have written so.

I do believe in free will. We are free to choose our actions in the given setting, the “given” setting which is partially constructed by our past actions and things we cannot control, a combination of both. We determine what to do with the time and opportunities given to us.

Full Moon in Aries

Today we are super charged with the Full Moon in Aries! Aries is all about life, individuation, crying our unique spirit out to the world. Aries is the firestarter, the bolt thrower, awakener of the Twelve Signs. We are all familiar with the child-like (not childish) enthesuasism of those born under the sign of the Ram.

Aries is a fire sign. Think about Fire. Fire can be detrimental, it can burn whatever it touches and turns Life into grey ash. Yet Fire is vital. Heat in the body, fire to cook, to heat our homesteads and most importantly: Light. In the right way, Fire can bring wonders, in the wrong way it can cause disasters. Thankfully we have Saturn, Lord of Time, controlling, limiting and setting boundaries with Neccessity.

This time the full moon is very powerful. Sun and Moon, facing each other, are forming a T-Square with Pluton, the Lord of the Underworld. Do not let your mind wander into details, let me keep them in the background for all of us. This Full Moon brings in the enegry of action and rebirth. Yet, the best thing about it is that we are one hundered percent accountable for it! All the strings are held by Saturn, the Judge, Guardian of the Rainbow Bridge. Neither the deep pulling energies of Pluton or the fireworks of Aries are out of measure. We are where we are meant to be.

Aries is all about spreading the seeds. As the Moon in Aries makes contact with Pluton, we will be feeling the seeds of Hades, seeds of life inside us tonight.

Take responsiblity of your actions. With responsibility comes the power within. This Full Moon will awaken many of us. Pluton has been working on some of us for the last 2-3 years. Those who have the Cross of Matter or personal planets, oiko despotes or the chart ruler around 20 degrees of Capricorn understand what I mean. These days the Lord of the Underworld is making this last touch on you, if you are one of those people with 20 degrees of cardinal signs are emphasized on their chart. Use your power wisely. Take responsibility and stay accountable. Never leave even one step away from the Virtues. Whenever we move away from the right path, Saturn is here to put us back to the right path. Honesty will guide us through the darkness of this night with the silvery rays of the Moon falling down on us with a thousand blessings.

November 7-9: Deep in the Ocean

We have arrived at the Sun – Neptune trine and the Moon is in Pisces. This is very deep Piscean energy. Neptune vibrates spirituality, dreams, imagination, inspiration and illusions. In the realm of Poseidon we move beyond matter and wander the Eternity as a little fish lost in the Ocean. Surrender. Feel. Imagine and create in vision.

There is a fruitful time ahead for those who could walk beyond the Chiron Bridge and find solace in serving the Collective. Gates of Eternity are waiting for them. For the evolving souls can be dealing with illusions, ghosts and imagined fears. The only way to release the illusions is to kindle the fire and bring the light.

Sun in Scorpio comes to trine Neptune and the Moon is in Pisces. It might be harder for us to stay in reality. Especially if Neptune was significant at your birth or you have Piscean energy in your chart, this also involves 12th House placements. These days  w emay need to put forth extra effort to percieve reality as real as it gets. We need reality checks in every corner. Is it just a dream or reality ? Alternatively, for those who may choose, it might be good time for rest, creative work or simply diving into high fantasy, movies and books. The world of imagination harkens to us. This week we are open to spiritual and numinal experiences rather than running the errands of the material world. Heaviness of matter is lifted. It is a time t oto let the spirit speak and inspiration pour on our cups. After all, the modern world was all about the sad stories of amnesia. The forgotten and silenced spirit has been harkening to us behind all the mess all along.

❋ ❋ ❋

“Turn to me with your whole heart
Do not spurn me
Because I am weak and black.
The depths have hidden my face.
Because I am held fast
In the mire of the deep
And my essence is not revealed
I cried out of the depths;
And from the abysses of the earth
Doth my voice speak to you.”

Aurora Consurgens, quoted by C.G. Jung ETH, Vol.VI

❋ ❋ ❋

We are in a good time to retrieve the forgotten spirit.

Some will hear the etheric call of the sirens from afar. The sirens were always there, now we have arrived at their bay. They call to us with their sweet song. Will you harken and get lost in the song ? Forever lost in the dream and the sweet slumber ? Or will you face it all ? Brave the illusions, fears and comformity ? Will you really give up your comfortable life ? You can live by playing video games and browsing the internet forever. Will you leave this comfort and security ? There is a lot of comfort in numbing the desires. Yet will you choose to have yourself tied to the mast and face your fears and illusions and stay true to your purpose ?

What are we going through, how are we getting through ?

An astrological insight.

As the peoples of the world, we have been going through various sets of events that kept testing our faith. When our faith failed, we acted out of fear; fear of poverty, strife or any sort of fear that hold relevancy to our reality. When our faith prove strong we do not act with fear but from our Self, some call it “higher self”.

At the end of 2020, there will be a major shift. Until then, we will be going through our tests of faith. How we are sailing through the current tolil and turmoil will determine where we will be at the beginning of the new cycle.

External events may not always be our own choices but how we respond to them is always our choice. How we percieve an event plays a crucial part in determining our response. What rules our perception ? Through what lens do we see the world and give meaning to it ? It is possibble that we percieve the world through our constructed values and belief system. Values are taught to us by the society, rarely do we carry the values that are natural to us and perhaps finding our own values, determining what to value, making our own choices when it comes to worth and value is the power politics between the society and the individual. I have great news. The Promethean fires are now burning in the vault where we keep our values and valuables. It is time to radically change our value systems. What do you value ? Write this down on a piece of paper and see your answer change in seven years. The coming years will see materialism fail and human potential valued like never before. Today this sounds unrealistic and even dreamy, but the voyage of Uranus through the fertile gardens of Taurus promises this.

Full Moon in Sagittarius: Wings of Icarus

I hear a call from the distance
Where the Sun sets into the islands
Deep into the Icarian Sea.

We are heading towards a full moon in the sign of Sagittarius.

According to the location of Hagia Sophia, the moon comes to fullness about an hour before noontide. 08:29 AM GMT: 09:29 London, 10:29 Prague, 11:29 Athens. I recommend you to check the exact time for your location.

Moon has her own life. In each cycle she is born (new moon), she grows, comes to fullness (full moon), she fades and dies (dark moon). This corresponds to the cycle of life. We see this in the life of plants, animals and humans. The triad of the Maiden-Mother-Crone corresponds to the phases of the Moon. Women’s cycles of life and life-giving, death and rebirth are the rules of Nature.

Arriving at the hour of the full moon means many things. Things we have started two weeks ago may come to flowering, the ideas we have concepted earlier may have come to fruitation, we may choose to cut our ties with something/someone or the silvery light of the Moon may reveal that which cannot be seen in the golden light of the Day.

The astrological indications of this full moon reminded me of the story of Icarus. Icarus is the son of Daedalus who built the Labyrinth in Minos. It is also said that Daedalus helped Theseus, too. Therefore he was imprisoned inside the Labyrinth (which he built himself!) with his son Icarus. A genius mind always finds a way out. Do you remember what I had wrote about the new moon in Gemini ? A man builds his own wings… It is the human mind, capacity and the ability to create. This is what takes us forward in life even when we are locked up. Thus Daedalus and his son Ikarus made their winds out of wax and geese feather.

Daedalus and Icarus wore their wings and were ready to take their flight from Crete, across the Cyclades and north to mainland Greece, over the wine dark Sea. Yet Daedalus warned his young son: “Fly from the middle way, not too close to the sea for the waters will wet your wings and you may fall; not too high up towards the Sun, for the Sun will melt the wax and you may loose your wings forever.” Youth… The young Icarus nodded and who knows what he held in his heart… Perhaps he was too enthausastic or encouraged or too optimistic ? Ikarus took the wind and flew away from the wooded mountains of Crete, over the well populated islands…Flying was such a joy, freedom at last… after captive years, he was now free as the winds. I cannot tell you how he felt for I have never flew myself like this. But they say, he took a wild wind up, towards the Sun and his laughters of joy was heard from the islands. He, as his heart also flew with him, wanted to touch the Sun and flew up high… Yet, as his father had warned him, the Sun melted the wax that made his wings… and the beautiful youth fell, down into the Sea where now is named after him.

These days we may feel like the young Icarus. Perhaps too optimistic or too enthasuastic. Everything may seem to go as we wish. It must be the astrologer’s duty to give a slight warning that things may not be what they seem. It is best to ground, stay grounded and not forget the restrictions of reality. We have been going through really harsh times and this full moon I doubt not brings some joy and lightness to our hearts. Yet it is best to think twice and not stray from the rules even though we are so very tempted to break them. Keeping to the measure is also a virtue.

Μηδὲν ἄγαν, Nothing to excess.

New Moon in Gemini: A Man’s Wings

On June 3, we experienced a new moon in the sign of Gemini. This new moon happened at the Midheaven, Medium Coeli, of Istanbul.

Tides matter in Astrology. Dawn, when the day is born, midday and sunset, when the day ends and the middle of the night, when the Sun is in the very depths of darkness, are the four corners of a chart, and time. Today, the Moon and Sun joined each other at the exact noontide in Istanbul. In the sign of Gemini which is about flying, freedom, scientific thinking, logic and analytic thinking, the Mind.

New Moons happen when the Sun and Moon join each other in the heavens. Yet Time is in everflow. Neither Moon or the Sun stay where they are. Even they find each other and unite for a moment, they are bound to seperate for they are always in motion. The Moon moves faster than the Sun and she seperates and is born anew after every union. So we have a new cycle, the new month begins with fresh, new energy. Women know cycles and the secrets of the Moon.

Gemini is where the mental activity takes place. Speech, dialogues, communication, thinking, analytical thinking, science, writing and reading find their expression in the realm of the Twins. As the new moon begins in Gemini, we are expecting an intellectual innovation. A new idea, a new book, a new course…

We will be intelectually active in the following two weeks. Our minds may be sharper, we may be more curious than usual. Curiosity is a Geminin virtue. It is a good time to read, to study and be curious. We are flowing through a good time for self expression. We, humans, are worth expressing ourselves freely, speaking our mind is a natural right.

As the Moon seperates from the Sun, she will make her first contact with Jupiter, the star (well, planet) of great ideas, big theories, philoshopy, doctrines and faith. Jupiter is certainly enjoying his wide and wise throne in the realm of Sagittarius. It looks as if he is also waiting for the Moon and Mercury to channel his divine message to us.

This is a very positive new moon. The two benefics of the Heavens, Venus and Jupiter are both in their own signs. Both Venus and Jupiter are able to bless us with their beauty, abundance and grace. There is nothing that hinders their power.

The material world we live in is an illusion for nothing stays the same, everything changes. This month, change will be with us. You can experiement this yourself, write down your ideas to your journal and check at the end of the month if anything has changed. You may be surprised. It is a great time to write, think and do mental work. In a few days Mercury will move into Cancer and we will be able to work on our emotions and mind, together. This will be a golden opportunity for those who seek to know themselves and grow their awareness around emotional responses and family/childhood conditioning.

World is crumbling into pieces. Our civilisation is coming to an end. Around the world, economies are shaking, many companies are closing or shrinking… it looks as if everything has gone down the Hell. It did. Thus ends an age of pain, slavery and chaos, the Age of Pisces. We are at the dawn of Age of Aquarius. Imagine yourself standing in the darkness just before dawn, the hour of the wolf. The hour when everything is darkest, coldest… Darkest hour precedes the glory of dawn. We are going through the Vargatiden. Yet, Jupiter wants us to keep the faith. As Saturn and Pluton keep demolishing all that does not serve us, we are only expected to trust and keep a light in the dark. Trust the process, the great ones know what they are doing.

Today’s new moon opens us a fresh window to leave the darkness behind and fly with the winds. Gemini is an Air Sign. We can take the next step, we can spread our wings to a new future. Perhaps the purpose of life is hidden in transcending our boundaries and trying that which seems impossible ?

Men and women make their own wings. For we have the faculty of Mind. Our hands have been making tools for millenia. With our own wings that we made with observations, study, calculations and our own labour, can we take our flight from Galata Tower down to the other side of the Bosphorus. As an Ottoman young man, Hezarfen Ahmed Çelebi made it once in the 1600’s.

Notre Dame Fire and Nero’s Midpoint

Nero is famous with the Great Fire of Rome. This was also an event which held symbolic significance as the end of a phase in the human civilization and beginning of another. Such as the recent Notre Dame fire which we understand in the context of endings and beginnings.

 

24 degrees Sagittarius

 

Sagittarius is a Fire Sign. Its element is fire. Sagittarius, as a mutable fire sign is about spreading inspiration, spreading philosophy and teachings to the others, it perhaps may also be about spreading fire as well.

 

As Notre Dame burned, Jupiter was standing still slowy beginning to move retrograde at 24 degrees of Sagittarius.

24 degrees of Sagittarius is also significant in the natal chart of Nero the Roman Emperor.

nero.png

Above is the natal chart of Nero as taken from Astrotheme.com

 

In this chart, 24 degrees of Sagittarius is the Sun/Mars Midpoint. Any astrology student can see the weight of Fire Element in this chart.

24 degrees of Sagittarius shows itself both of these events.

 

 

 

Aphrodite Pandemos, Aphrodite Urania

Plato talks about two aspects of Aphrodite.

Aphrodite Pandemos: Love for everyone. Common love. On the physical plane, pertaining to sexual attraction.

Aphrodite Urania: Queen of Heaven. The celestial aspect of the Goddess, transcendental, spiritual, eternal.

It is very interesting to observe two aspects of Venus in astrology. Venus may mean love as it is, sensuality, pleasures; the good feelings we get via the five senses. In some cases, Venus plays a spiritual role. It is surprising to our modem minds that Venus can be the significator of spirituality and spiritual awakening, but she is.

Charts with a special emphasis on 4-8-12 houses may be more inclined to host Aphrodite Urania. If we have a chart which is focused on the joys and pleasures, toil and trouble of the Earthly realm, chances for a celestial goddess to shine forth is less in such a chart, so Aphrodite Pandemos will step forward brining lovers, money, riches and earthly pleasures. It can be both, too! 😉

Feminen Arketipler

Carl Jung’un meşhur feminen arketiplerini bilirsiniz. Arketipler, prensip odur ki, tanımlanamazlar ancak sembollerle gösterilebilirler.

Bu çalışma elbette Jung’un tanımladığı arketipleri öğretmek amacını taşımıyor. Zaten bu konularla çalışıyorsanız ve içsel yolculuğunuzda feminen arketipler konusunda bir rehberliğe ihtiyaç duyuyorsanız okumaya devam edin. 🙂

Evrende sonsuz sayıda asteroid var. Bugün, bu zamanda ve bu çalışmada biz kendi asteorid kuşağımızdaki dört asteroide odaklanacağız. Bu dört asteroid, Jung’un tanımladığı dört feminen arketipe karşılık geliyor.

Asteroid Juno – Sevgili/Eş Arketipi

Asteroid Ceres – Anne Arketipi

Asteroid Pallas – Savaşçı Arketipi

Asteroid Vesta – Rahibe Arketipi

Bugün geldiğimiz noktada bu asteroidlerin bir kişinin doğum anında nerede durduğunu, kendini o anda nasıl ifade ettiğini, haritanın geri kalanıyla nasıl bir ilişki içinde olduğunu görebiliyoruz. Bu demektir ki, harita sahibinin hayat deneyiminde ve kişiliğinde bu arketiplerin kendilerini nasıl gösterdiğini görebiliyoruz. Bu astrolojinin bize verdiği hediyelerden biridir.

Dört Feminen Arketip Çalışması için doğum haritanızı bilmeniz gerekli. Daha önce birlikte çalıştığım arkadaşlarıma öncelik vereceğim ama astrolojiyle tanışmak ve kendi gizemlerinin kapısını aralamak isteyen herkes de her zaman ilk adımı atabilir.

Dört Feminen Arketip Çalışması hakkında daha fazla bilgi almak ve bu çalışmaya başlamak için bir mesaj atın.

Burcunuza Göre Takı ve Aksesuar Seçimleri

Bu yazıyı yükselen burcunuza ve Venüs burcunuza göre okumanızı tavsiye ederim.

 

Koç

Canlı renkler ve özellikle kırmızı. Metaller kullanılabilir çünkü Koç mekanik şeyleri, metalleri sever. Siyah ve gri tonları kırmızı ile birleştirilebilir. Metal boncuklar, çelik, sert ve hayat dolu olan her şey Koç için.

 

Boğa

Altın. Boğa, zenginliğin, bolluğun ve bereketin burcu olduğu için altın takmayı sevecektir. Boğa, her şeyin en iyisini ister. Takı konusunda da en iyi, en güzel şekilde üretilmiş olanlar onun hoşuna gidecektir. Ağaç ve çiçek figürleri, metal para figürleri onun için idealdir.

 

İkizler

Hareketli ve günlük görünümlü takılar İkizler’in hoşuna gider. Üzerine yazı olan, isim yazan takıları da sever. Binlerce boncuk, yeni ve trend olan takılar İkizler içindir. O her sezon gardrobunu değiştirir.

 

Yengeç

Gümüş. Yengeç Burcu’nun yöneticisi Ay olduğuna göre, Ay’ın metali olan gümüşten bahsetmeliyiz. Gümüşten yapılmış hilal şeklinde bir kolye ucu her Yengeç’in gizli takı hayali olsa gerek 🙂 Aileden, ailedeki kadınlardan miras kalan takıları da severek takar ve bunlara çok büyük değer verir.

 

Aslan

Ve yine Altın. Aslan için altından daha başka bir metal düşünülebilir mi ? Altın, değerli taşlar, kraliçelere layık olan nadir takılar onlara yakışır. Ne olursa olsun parlak, ışıldayan ve dikkat çeken takılar ve mücevherler Aslan’ı mutlu eder.

 

Başak

Tahta boncuklar, doğal materyellerden yapılan her şey Başak’ın favorisi. Ona temizlemekten keyif alacağı şeyler hediye edin.

 

Terazi

Terazi, güzelliğe ve estetiğe en çok önem veren burçlardan. Takılarının her şeyden önce kendine has bir tarzı, belli bir estetik duygusuna sahip olması gerekir. Terazi için en ideal takılar sanat eseri gibi güzel, incelikle ve ince bir işçilikle yapılmış olanlar.

 

Akrep

Siyah. Siyah kadifeden bir bileklik, siyah taşlardan bir kolye, yüzük… Akrep karanlık ve derin olmayı sever. Siyah ve kırmızı onun üzerinde taşımayı sevdiği renkler. Akrep’in asıl istediği şey gölgelerin arasında kaybolmak, bu yüzden koyu renkleri tercih ediyor. Gizleyebileceği takıları sevecektir.

 

Yay

Tayland’dan getirdiği o boncuklar var ya, işte onlar Yay’ın favorisi. Etnik, farklı kültürlere ait takılara ve her şeye bayılır. Üzerinde taşıdığı takıların ve sembollerin ne anlama geldiği onun için her şeyden daha önemli. Maddeden, nesneden çok anlam ve deneyim arayışında olan Yay, bazen takılarını kaybetmeye veya dağıtmaya da meyilli olabilir, dikkat!

 

Oğlak

Saat. Zaman, Oğlak için her şeyden daha önemli. Hayatını organize etmesine, zamanını yönetmesine yardımcı olacak şık bir saat Oğlak için en harika takı olabilir. Bunun yanında sosyal statüsünü gösteren takılar da onu mutlu eder. Ancak bazen arada değişiklik yapman gerektiğinin farkında mısın Oğlak ? Neden hep aynı şeylere takılmış, inatla aynı şeyleri takıyorsun ?

 

Kova

Yeni olan şeyleri sever Kova. Yeni teknolojilerle üretilmiş takılar, hiçkimsenin henüz keşfetmemiş olduğu, herkesi şaşırtacak olan takılar onun için. Mavi ve beyaz tonlarını tercih edebilir.

 

Balık

Denizden çıkan her şey Balık’ın üzerine yakışır 😀 Balık, dünyalar arasında gidip geldiği için o spiritüel niteliği olan takıları sever. Gümüş de onun favorisi. Mavi tonları, gümüşler onun için. Balıkların üzerlerinde her zaman biraz deniz havası taşıması iyidir, istiridyelerle, denizden çıkarılan maddelerden yapılan takılarla dolu bir kutu sakladığınız biliyorum sevgili Balık.

 

Bu konuda sorular geldiği için not düşmek isterim, doğal taşlarla ilgili hiçbir şey bilmiyorum ve kendim doğal taş kullanmıyorum. Benim böyle şeylerle bir alakam yok. 

 

 

Şimdilik bu kadar,

 

 

Sevgiler
