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,

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.

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.

 

 

 

Philoctetes and the Great Healer at Troy

The Iliad is the epic of Ilios, the modern western Turkey. Yet the Iliad tells us of the long lasting war in Ilios, around Troy and Troy gets destroyed at the end of the Iliad. This used to confuse me. Homeros himself was also from Illios, why did he write an epic on the destruction of his land ?

Today a very wise woman has told me that the Iliad was about the deeds of the people who later get punished for waging war against and destroying Troy. That is why the Iliad is read together with Odessey. Odessus gets lost in the seas, rowing from one island to the other; Agamemnon gets murdered by his wife and her lover only to be revenged by his son Orestes and mourned eternally by his daughter Electra.

One of those who fought at Troy and was in turn punished for it was Philoctetes. He was already renowned for he was bestowed Heracles’ bow and arrows that never miss. During a battle, Philoctetes was wounded at his leg. His wound never healed, even caught infection. No ointment, no cure, nothing ever worked for him. It worsened each day. It also had a horrible smell, it was very hard to stand this smell so people began to shy away from him. On his homeward voyage Philoctetes anchored his ship at the thyme and olive rich island of Lemnos. He ordered his crew to land on this island for hunting meat to keep them for the journey. His crew tricked Philoktetes for they wanted to get rid of him. The smell from his wound was so bad that they all decided to forsake him on the island all alone. They left in secret and all that Philoctetes could see was his ship leaving the shore…

Heracles’ magic bow and arrows helped him to survive all his days on Lemnos. Yet his wound and infection worsened and worsened… He did not die but he lived with it. He lived with the pain and smell.

Over the course of years his wound turned so bad that its smell could be felt from distance. Ships had to change their routes and avoid the winds from Lemnos for they carried the smell of Philoctetes’ unhealing wound.

It was never forgotten that Philoctetes carried Heracles’ magic bow and arrows. Fetching them from a dying man was an attractive idea. Yet even the desire to own such great weapons was not enough to drive men closer to the island for they always, always turned away from the smell. No one could stand it.

On a warm summer day, a ship approached Lemnos. Its prov was braving the waves and its sails loved Lodos, the south-east winds. There was a band of determined theives coming to steal Hereacles’ weapons. As they neared Lemnos, the smell got worse and worse… They withdrew one by one. At last they forced their youngest for the task. Poor boy he had no choice. He pressed rag to his face and took the small boat and landed on the golden sands at Lemnos. The smell was utterly unbearable on the island… yet the boy looked for Philoctetes. The boy roamed the island for three days and nights. At last he found the old dying man lying under a great olive tree. Philoctetes was lying there all alone, in pain. Something stirred the boy’s heart, he forgot about the bow and arrows. The smell was still present but he did not mind it. He ran to a stream to fetch water for Philoktetes. The old man drank. Then the boy carried him to the small boat and together they sailed for the Great Healer Aesclepius at Troy.

The reason Philoctete’s wound never healed itself was the guilt of his deeds at Troy. He was guilty and the gods (his consciousness and unconscious) knew it. It is guilt that blocks our own healing mechanisms so the wound never heals and it gets even worse. It is guilt that makes life and growth impossible for us. It is guilt that isolates us from the world. Once another person joins the scene and witnesses our pain and lets us make a connection with the rest of the world, healing may begin. Philoctetes’ healing lies where his guilty deeds were.

Andromeda the Chained Woman

Archetypes come to us only when we are ready to embody them. In our personal journey, we might currently be embodying the archetype of The Fool or The Great Mother or any other archetype. It is a highly personal process. Yet with conscious work we can realize what archetypes we currently embody and enable ourselves pass the thresholds easier and quicker. Which character of the Greek mythology are you right now in your life ? If you are feeling stuck, perhaps it is time to understand this character, learn his lesson and pass through the threshold and transition before you. Are you ready to embark upon a lively, meaningful life where you walk amongst Gods and Heroes ?

Andromeda is the woman who suffers her mother’s hubris and unfulfilled desire to be better than everyone else, a narcissistic desire.

Her mother’s comparisons, unrealistic expectations and unhealthy view of Andromeda ends up having the maiden chained to the rocks by the storming seas. There comes a great resistance, or, rather a great force into the scene. The Sea-Monster Cetus rises from the depths of the wine dark sea and curls its oily body around the rocks where the chained maiden dwells.

Gustave_Doré_Andromeda

Andromeda is robbed of her own life due her mother’s complexes. She is the young woman who stays where she is put, haunted by the depressing thoughts and feelings from the dark depths. She is constantly under the vigilance of her own monster from the Unconcious waters. Cetus is her power turned against her. When we do not let our energy into the world, it turns around and sabotages us back. All oppressed desires and energy will come back in the form of horrible things.

Andromeda is the chained woman. What will happen to her ? Is she going to rot where she is ? Are the sea-birds going to hunt on her ? What will become of her ? How does she break free and become the “ruler of men” she is destined to be.

I call our hero, Perseus as the accomplished masculine. He already has completed deeds, he has archetypal gifts and support (Helm of Hades, Shield of Athena…). He is already a hero, his mettle has been tested and he passed through the tests. Now it is time for him to become a ruler, too. Perseus gains consciousness in his former adventures, he completed his own quests and now he is coming to conjunct with his female part.

It is interesting that Andromeda stays chained, suffering her mother’s unlived life as Perseus accomplishes that much. These two figures give us clues about the parts of the self. Conscious and the Unconscious.

Perseus is the conscious, the masculine part. He accepts his gifts, interacts with others, competes, defeats his monsters and releases a Pegasus into the winds. He is loved, cherished and supported by the Olympians. He is gifted. He is the male principle, the Consciousness.

Whereas Andromeda stays chained, slowly paying back her mother’s unsatisfied, unlived, unaccomplished life. She is the victim. Yet Andromeda is her name, ruler of men.

After the unification of Perseus (Consciousness) and Andromeda (Unconscious), can the Self emerge as a ruler, no longer a victim or a roaming hero but a King/Queen to build a house, kingdom for the future.

Until the inner-masculine (Perseus in our story) arrives, the woman stays as a victim. She is paralyzed and enslaved without her inner man. Only after the arrival of inner-masculine, the blocking elements from the Unconscious (Sea-Monster Cetus) can be handled and lifted.

The Masculine breaks the chains of the Feminine. He defeats the Sea-Monster, the Dragon that has been keeping us a prisoner for too long.

What keeps us in this victim stance ? It can be unrealistic expectations from our family. For women it is sometimes unfulfilled desires of the mothers. We are all chained down watched over by the strict rules of the society. Over-culture is a life-draining monster.

Women with rather weak Masculine qualities are the people pleasers, passive, empty, non-creative people with little reason or knowledge.No mistake, we all start out this way. Yet on the Journey, we get to let our Masculine side grow and acquire his own accomplishments and finally free us of our chains.

If you feel there is a similarity between Andromeda and your current situation it is recommended that you dig out your inner masculine. Find him, in whatever condition he might be. Birth him. Nurture him. Mother him. He will grow to be a hero, your hero.

As a small starting step I recommend practicing this small exercise:

Write down all the masculine images that stayed with you. This can be images from art, movies, books… make a long list and try to see what you have.

I used to be an Andromeda. Bound to the shores of the Unconscious due external issues and circumstances. This is not our fate but just a page in our story book. Every woman has her Perseus inside. Your inner-Perseus, inner-Masculine can be hidden, forgotten and slipped down to Unconscious, like a great antique city that lurks at the bottom of the Sea. It is my duty to guide you through your Darkness to find him and bring him to your daily life where he will liberate and empower you.
