Meet the Wordweaver

Work of an astrologer, yoga instructor, a life coach and a mindfulness coach is delicate. It is always a matter of balance and eloquence to reach at the right souls at the right moment.

I write texts, e-mails, ads and various core material for coaches, teachers and instructors in the field of personal development. Some call this simply copywriting, I name it wordweaving. It is a remedy for anyone who is willing to make an online presence and moreover, transform their online presence to real life contacts.

Together we can create the right content for your website or social media. Feel free to inquire further at ninemusesacademy@gmail.com

We can organize a 1 hour consultation session which may lead us further into weaving together.

Only the right content and right wording can take you where you need to be.

With blessings to One and All,

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.

June 2019: Heroes of Steel

Andúril is being reforged and there is no one else than you and I to wield it.

Do you know the secret of steel ? How can one wield the power of the past to build a better future ? Some knew.

It is said that the ancient Scandinavians blended the bones of the deceased into iron as they forged their swords. This is a very primitive form of steel making.

“Deep roots are not reached by the frost.”

Where does true power come from ? Where do our roots lay ? All in the past. Our deeds accompany us into our future, yet, not only our deeds but the deeds of our ancestors which we inherited.

There is no hero who does not train with discipline. Achilles was mentored by Chiron, Herakles gained discipline through his thralldom. There is always hard work, temperance, turmoil and toil in the making of a hero. Heroes are made by Time, no child is born as one. There is no hero who is free from the deeds of those who come before her. Being so deeply connected to the past, the hero saves the World for those who will come after him.

The Hero stands between Past and Future, deciding the fate of the world. We rely on her capacity to beat the darkness and bring back the light of the day. The Hero’s sword is always inherited: Excalibur, Thyrfing, Andúril… you name it. This is Mars in Cancer, the sword that comes from the Waters, the sword which carries the spirit of the land and blessing of the ancestors.

Astrological Significance

These days Saturn and Pluton keep destroying the civilizations and Mars, the sword, is coming up to be tempered by their power. These days are great times for embodying the hero. As the world keeps crumbling down, seeds of a new day still hide in us. Each of us, you and I, keep the ideas, ideals and models for the future.

It is a time to temper our swords in the discipline and spirit of steel and bathe them in lifegiving Water. Our will to fight, will to survive, to cry ourselves into the world is now getting a blessing from the Past. Our swords now will be tempered and be given new life, a new name.

Andúril is being reforged and there is no one else than you and I to wield it.

Volume up your Bathory. It is our time to level up our weapons and find regeneration.

KADIKÖY, ISTANBUL

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.

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.
