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.

Yay’da Yeni Ay: Hayallerini Gerçekleştir!

26 Kasım Salı günü akşam 18:05’te, Yay Burcu’nun 3. derecesinde müthiş bir yeni ay yaşıyor olacağız.

Yay Yeni Ayları her zaman daha fazlasını istemektir, keşfetmektir, ufukların ardında yatan zenginlikleri aramaya çıkan bir maceradır… Yay, Evren’in genişleme prensibini anlatır. Kozmik Dans burada hiç bitmez ve Yay’ın Elementi olan Ateş Elementinden beslenir. Bu yüzden Yay’lar her zaman hareketli, ne istediğini bilen ve harekete geçmekte hiç hoşlanmayan kimselerdir. Onlar sizi huzurlu Hobbit evinizden alıp götüren birer Gandalf’tır ve pipolarındaki köz bile yerinde durmadığı için sakallarının ucu her zaman biraz yanıktır.

Akrep’teki Merkür gerilemesi bizi iyice aşağıya, kuzeye ve dibe çekti .Umuyorum ki bu altın günleri çok iyi değerlendirdik. Hazinelerin saklandığı yer her zaman karanlıktır ve ayağımızın takıldığı yerde yatar kendi hazinelerimiz. Hayat ise, konfor alanının ötesinde başlar.

Yay, hiçbir zaman güvenlik vaadinde bulunmaz. Ölümlü insanların en büyük arzusu ve korkusudur güvenlik. Hem güvende olmak ister insan ama fazla güvenliğin de onun vahşi tarafını törpüleyip kutulayacağını bilir. Yay asla yerinde durmaz. Boğa gibi onu altınlarla, rahatlıkla kandıramazsınız. Bir Yay kadını her zaman kırmızı ayakkabılarını giyecek ve vahşi dansını dans edecektir. Onu durdurmak imkansız.

Eğer bir Yay kadınını bir şekilde tutup bir yere kapatacak olursanız bu yeri yakar ve yıkar. Onun bilgeliğine, özgürlüğüne ve bu ikisinin biraraya gelmesine sabit gücüne saygı duymak, gitmek istediği zaman önünde durmamak yapabileceğiniz en iyi hareket olsa gerek. Yay her zaman eğlenmeyi bilir ve onu durdurmak, kafeslemek, bağlamak isteyenlerden de kendine iyi bir eğlence çıkartacaktır.

O yüzden, bu yeni ayda kendi önünden çekilmeli belki de insan. Bizi yerimizde tutan kim ? Buraya bağlayan ? Büyümemize, genişlememize ve hayat deneyimimizi genişletmemize izin vermeyen kim ? Kim bu sıkıcı hayatı yaratan ve bizi bu rutinler içine bağlayan ? Hiç düşünmeye gerek yok, yanıt aynada. Bu yüzden çok zordur kendimizle yüzleşmek. İnsan ne yaparsa kendine yapar ve insanın başına gelen her şey yine kendindendir.

Ancak bu Yeni Ay bize kendimizden çıkma şansını veriyor. Biraz peri tozu ve fantazi hala bizimle. Hayal kurmak ve hayal kurarken sınırsız olmak mümkün. İnsanın en büyük gücü hayal gücüdür. İçinde yaşadığımız dünya, kullandığımız nesneler, düşüncelerimiz, hayatımız… Her şey fantezidir. Bu ne kadar büyük, değil mi ? İnsanı önceden hayalin kurup aklında tasarlamadığı hiçbir şey yok. Kullandığımız bilgisayar, elinde tuttuğun telefon, ayakkabıların, kıyafetlerin… her şey ilk önce sadece bir hayal, bir düşünce, bir tasarıydı… Sonra maddeye döküldü. Yazıldı, planlandı, hammadde bulundu, emek verildi ve şimdi işte senin ellerinde, işliyor hatta.

Bu yeni ayda büyük hayallerimizi maddeleştirme, gerçekleştirmeye başlama şansımız çok yüksek. Eğer hayallerin varsa, bunları planlayabiliyorsan ve gerçekleştirmek için çalışmak, çalışmak ve hatta çalışmak istiyorsan işte şimdi tüm Evren senin arkanda… Bu yeni ayda, Yay’ın yönetici gezegeni olan Jüpiter, Yay Burcunda, yani Yeni Ay’ın olduğu yerde. Birkaç gün sonra hayallerin somutlaştığı, gerçeğe döndüğü yer olan Oğlak Burcu’na geçecek. Yani bu yeni ayda aklında olan hayalleri 3 Aralık’tan sonra adım adım, emek vererek ve sabrederek gerçekleştirmeye başlayabilirsin. Bu en az 1 yıl alabilir.

Bizler, şu andaki toplumsal hayat içinde, istediklerimizin anında olmasına alıştık. İstediğimiz her şeyi Internetten anında bulabiliyoruz. 2008’de Sabancı Üniversitesinde master yaparken, gördüğüm bir kitap çok ilgimi çekmişti, Guilla Sissa – Greek Virginity, bu kitaba ulaşabilmek için onu Bilkent’in kütüphanesinden istetmiştim… Şimdi ise bir kitaba dahi ulaşmak çok daha kolay. Bu bir yandan iyi ama bir yandan da bizi istediklerimizi, ruhumuzun derin arzularını gerçekleştirmenin aslında vakit alan, bazen yıllar alan ve çok emek isteyen bir şey olduğu gerçekliğinden uzaklaştırıyor. Bu çağda hepimiz sanki Cinderella gibi, hop diye dönüşüvereceğimizi ve istediğimiz her şeye sahip olabileceğimizi zannediyoruz. Bunlar masal. İnanılmaması gerekenler işte bunlar. Hayat her zaman emek ister. Sabır, çok çalışmak ve gerçekliğe saygılı olmak hayatın temellerindedir. Önümüzdeki dönemde, Jüpiter’in Oğlak yolculuğu boyunca bunları çok daha iyi anlayacağız.

Bu dönemde astroloji danışmanlığı seanslarım devam ediyor. Seanslarda geleceğe değil, size odaklanıyoruz. İnsanın kendini tanıması, kendini bilmesi her şeyin ilk anahtarıdır. Kendini bilen ve tanıyan insan gelecekte de karşılaşacağı olaylar karşısında en iyi tavrı alacaktır. Ben geleceği göstermeye değil, kişinin kendi gerçekliğini ve harika benliğini kendisine göstermenin çok daha yararlı olduğuna inanıyorum. Seanslarımızı da bunu üzerine birlikte tasarlıyoruz. Doğum Haritası Çalışması astrolojinin temelidir. Seanslar ve Nine Muses’daki atölyeler hakkında daha detaylı bilgi için lütfen bir mail atın.

2020: Jupiter in Capricorn : Hall Up High

High on the throne he shines: his coursers fly
Between the extended earth and starry sky.
But when to Ida’s topmost height he came,
Fair nurse of a thousand fountains, and of savage game
Where over her pointed summits proudly raised,
His fane breathed scents, and his altar blazed:
There, from his radiant car, the sacred sire
Of gods and men released the steeds of fire:
Blue ambient mists the immortal steeds embraced;
High on the cloudy point his seat he placed;
Thence his broad eye the subject world surveys,
The town, and tents, and navigable seas.

From the Illiad, trans. A. Pope

Jupiter in Capricorn always reminds me of this scene in the Illiad. Zeus atop Mount Ida, watching the little humans strive. So far away from them, yet so near. Nothing escapes his gaze and his judgement is clear.

Jupiter, the spouse of Juno, King of Gods, the Wanderer glides through each sign of the Zodiac for about a year. All through 2019, we have been experiencing his journey through the jovile sign of Sagittarius. Yet the party is about to end and who will clean the house ? Capricorn, of course. The world felt extra comfortable this year, we were wearing large and comfortable clothes and we had many opportunities for growth despite the heaviness of Saturn and Pluton in Capricorn. Jupiter is always about growth and getting bigger. We had a year of expansion. Look behind and see the gifts of the last year, it is a good day to cherish them.

Ptolemy informs us that Jupiter’s temperament is warm and moist. This is a friendly temperament, thus Jupiter is a benefic planet. King of Gods is wise, he grants glory and wisdom upon whom he wishes. Thus in Astrology, Star of Zeus signifies Fortune, favours, opportunities, prizes, success and awards we get after long time of toil and turmoil. Yet sometimes Jupiter can signify false hopes, great expectations or exaggration. Despite his reputation with positive sides of life, we often find Jupiter also involved in hard and heartbreaking situations. Some ancient astrologers do not favour Sun-Jupiter conjunctions.

Jupiter can be a significator of growth and activitiy, thus production. Jupiter makes things grow, remember the stories when Zeus could manage a myriad of ways to get the maidens pregnant with more life ?

Jupiter is a social planet, hence his diurnal quality. Jupiter is there when we are out there, socializing and making our path in life. He has little to do with our personal lives. Star of Zeus is a significator of social recognition, popularity and philosophy in life: how we relate to the society and how the society behaves us: how we are rewarded by the society.

On 3 December, Jupiter steps into the realm of Capricornus.

So, what is Capricorn ?

Capricorn is the Tenth Place of the Zodiac. This is where we make ourselves visible to the World. The cold and judging gaze of the society falls upon us. Capricorn knows how to effectively allocate the resources. Here is where we gather up and materialize all our efforts, passion, relationships, labour, intellect: all our experiences of this life. We put forth all the gathered experience in a systematic and consistent way: that is how we build our career. The society happens to know us by our titles, relations and social status. It does not concern itself with our highest fantasies, dreams and aspirations but the titles we carry and what we can give to the society, hence our career. Capricorn is where we build our reputation and it takes a very long time. Remember Captain Shake Spear’s quote in Stardust: “Reputations, you know – a lifetime to build, seconds to destroy.”

When the King of Gods arrives at the unforgiving peaks of Capricorn, he is ready to enter his own mountainside. He will not – of course – bow to the norms and rules of others. A song of greatness follows him through the winds, he rules over the world and fates of men with his Eagle’s view.

Things get serious.

2020 will be a serious year. No Neptunian fantasy lights, little fairy dust, no dreamshow. 2020 is our reality check time and this is exactly what we need. We have been “off” far too long. In Capricorn, Jupiter is not a jovial giver, a generous, warm hearted benefector, an open handed gift-giver. He demands. He lives up high at the peaks and demands from us. We have to be hardworking and realistic this year. Our responsibilities, responsibilities for Earth, society and each other can come to the fore. Things get serious. It is better to be prepared. The Jupiter-Neptune square has kicked our spirituality to the top top top level in 2019. In 2020 we will arrive at a more materialistic place. On the other hand, Uranus in Taurus demands us to understand that the only riches come from the Earth. Gates of true Wealth are about to be opened. This broken system of world economy is about to collapse. And a new time of Wealth will be born out of the belly of Time. Trust in the process 😉

Blessings to One and All

Full Moon in Taurus

We have arrived at the Taurean Full Moon of the year. Full moons in the sign of the Celestial Bull are strong for they bring the powers of Life, Death and Rebirth into our consciousness.

Full moons are the time of completion and revealing. Night-veil of Selene is completeley lifeted and her Truth lights up the Sky. What was concieved at the alchemical moment of the new moon comes to consciousness at the moment of the fullness of the moon. The unseen, new meaning and manifestation of Time reveals itself in all its embracing, silvery, life giving glory.

Taurus is all about the birthing Earth: life giving and nourishing Earth Mother in all her beauty expressed in colourful flowers, perfumes, tastes and birdsong. Scorpio is when we end one phase to perpetuate life: change and transformation; Death if you like. As the Sun in Scorpio and Moon in Taurus come to face each other, we hang in a moment between Life and Death. Both Sun and Moon are our life givers, lights. Today we are recieving the light of the Sun through the dakr and cold waters of Scorpio and the nourishing light of the Moon through the birthing and grounding garden of Taurus. Taurus is the second sign of the Zodiac, we also call it the Second Place. In Hellenistic Astrology the Second Place is named the Gate of Hades. This is where we enter the chtonic realm, where the Spirit (Fire-Aries) slow down into matter. On the contrary, The Eighth Place (Scorpio) is where matter dissoved into energy. Matter is set free and energy flows. In order to understan this, I offer an example: Think about spring, this is the season of Taurus (21 April -21 May). Everything in nature grows during spring. New life expands. Trees absorb the elements and build up their branches. Light of the Sun enters the earthly realm and makes it grow.

In November, Scorpio (21 Oct-21 Nov), we begin to burn those branches to recieve warmth and light from them. Energy of the Sun was collected, stored in the trees during spring and summer, now we set it free in the absence of the Sun. Scorpio is the time when matter is destroyed and the energy is set free. This example encapsulates the Taurus-Scorpio axis, where we are experincing the full moon today.

You can always find materialistic Taureans who will colledt the good things and pile up their treasury only to be spend and destroyed by a Scorpio. Your Scorpio friends may always be on the look out for ways of transformation, therefore be ready to spend and utilize their resources instead of collecting.

We can contemplate on how the process of growth/unmaking works in our lives. Is it balanced or needs to be balanced ? The full moon helps us to see these aspects of life. The retrograding Mercury and aspecting Pluto are also adding to the powers of this moment of fullness and fruitation. Hermes, the Messenger of the Gods, weaves his way between the Divine Twins of Leto. While Pluton, who stands at the beginnings and endings, is beholding this moment from his icy throne on the gnawing peaks of Capricorn.

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.

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

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! 😉
