MoonWobble Chart 2014 Oct 12


 MoonWobble Weather Patterns

Peak is 11 - 12 - 13 October 2014


Our Old Gods gather once again in clanship to celebrate our MoonWobble continuing within the Lunar Nodal Axis of Aries/Libra cycle.  MoonWobbles are potent archetypal gifts to identify experiential and existential tension.  As Translators and Ontologists, our purpose is to transcend the three-dimensional mind, the shadowy side of problems.  System, Method, Order are the Ontological watch words in approaching sense testimony.  Use this jolt of joy wisely for accelerated evolution, participation in Cosmic Intention, and transcendence of the endless lunar cycle.  

Whenever you have time, you have duality, birth and death.  The Moon represents that power of consciousness and life in the field of time and space, where it puts on bodies and puts them off.  This Lunar principle is that of life engaged in the field of time and space.  The Sun, on the other hand, is never shadows except in eclipse, and so does not carry its death within it; thus it represents consciousness disengaged from the field of time and space.

The great mystic realization that the Lunar and Solar principles, seemingly dual aspects of consciousness, are in fact, one consciousness.  Your consciousness.  Here in the field of life, is at the same time, consciousness disengaged from this field.  The paradox of relating oneself to these two aspects of one's own true being and entity is the great mystical balancing act.  Our being incorporates both aspects - the solar and the lunar - allowing us to navigate this razor's edge (Campbell, 2013, pp. 47-52).

Thane taught an ontological meditation wherein the Sun symbolizes the essential self ("figuratively speaking") and the Moon reflects an endlessly changing principle. An endlessly cycling wheel of fortune of temporal, mortal flesh, birth, fruition and decay. The Moon goes out into the lifeworld and soaks up its little taste of experience, then offers this chunk of sense testimony to the Sun for processing. The nodal axis crystallizes the relationship between Sun and Moon to reflect that sphere of life in which the coniunctio - the inner blending of the two principles - is most likely to manifest (Greene, 1992). An androgynous coitus between a changing, receptive principle and a constant, radiant principle. Remember, if you are not Translating, then you are food for the Moon (Gurdjieff, 1976).

Each MoonWobble undulate as articulated by Thane runs about 37 days in duration (using a 5 degree Aspect Orb as Standard Deviation). Carefully consider decisions during this period. Like any transit, MoonWobble represents a cyclic process. There are stages of buildup, release and integration. MoonWobble is an emotional experience shared inter-subjectively into an apparently objective reality. As such, it is a communal RHS. Conscious awareness and appropriate action results in a smooth transition.

The MoonWobble undulate starts building up energy some 25 days (Wednesday, September 17, 2014) before the peak as personal irritability is evident, entering a critical period some 12 days (Tuesday, September 30, 2014) before the peak to a maximum build-up (Sunday, October 12, 2014). Allow the release of energy letting up a few days after the peak (Wednesday, October 15, 2014). The affect is gradually integrated over 12 days after the peak (Friday, October 24, 2014).

The North Node (intentionally beckoning forward) is in Libra, both Libra and the North Node are ruled by Venus. Sun in Libra is conjunct North Node and Venus.  The South Node (unintentional, unplanned) is in Aries conjunct Uranus, both Aries and the South Node are ruled by Mars.  While all signs are affected, those with planets or indicators in Aries and Libra will be most strongly influenced.  Remember that everyone has at least Houses of Aries (Family Non-Survival Dynamic Changer - Fire - Past, Ruler - Mars) and Libra (Family Non-Survival Dynamic Guide - Air - Past, Ruler - Venus).  Family Survival Dynamics.  Cardinal Air is the Wind fanning Fire energy into a global wildfire.  Aries deals with war.  Libra deals with compromise, agreements, deals.  Yet Mercury is Retrograde, so nothing anyone says should be believed or trusted.  A delicate balance between war and diplomacy.  Sun in Libra, is in its own Triplicity so stronger.  Aries and Libra are both Cardinal Signs - they are goal oriented, and initiate action and lead.  They mark the Equinoxes.  Viewing the Nodes through the lens of the Totality Field, we might view the North Node as an intentional expansion of consciousness into known territory, the C-Field. The South Node is then an unintentional expansion of consciousness into unknown terrain, an A-Field.  

Interpretation and Fixed Star Framework

As an archetypal phase of the life cycle of potent reconstruction, the 19th degree Sun in Libra Conjunct North Node in Libra is illustrated by a gang of robbers in hiding.  An exercise of freedom of spirit in an original and unique impulse on the side of a practical or everyday self-fulfillment.  The keynote is a protest against disharmonic social privilege.  The Key word is Divergence - Group Protest.

The 19th degree South Lunar Node in Aries is illustrated by a magic carpet of oriental imagery.  A revelation of consciousness's infinite capacity for an overview of experience, or for the participation in the idealistic possibilities without any necessary self-involvement.  A way of life refusing a hectic involvement in social competition calling for a transcendent understanding.  Key issue is Panorama - the use of creative imagination.

A beautiful mix of Uranus in Aries conjunct South Node demanding social change, balanced by the polite manners of Sun and Venus conjunct North Node in sociable Libra.

The Aries/Libra nodal axis is the axis of family responsibility, and is fixedly rooted in the past. The universal cycles of birth and death, growth and destruction, Spring and Fall. The Aries/Libra axis relates very strongly to the myth of Persephone. The core issue of self-worth from sustaining and maintaining.  Aries represents the individual, while Libra represents the collective.  An opportunity to balance individual liberty with collective responsibility.

South Node in Aries, ruled by Mars, connects the planet to loss and sacrifice.  North Node in Libra is ruled by a dignified Venus, and is in it's natural sign.  This suggests a greater emphasis on diplomacy, then war.  North Node in Libra is in the eleventh house of social alliances, the concerns of Libra.  South Node conjunct weird and revolutionary Uranus in Aries is in the fifth house of creativity and children.

Make it work for you

While the MoonWobble Report may be technically helpful, there is no substitute for doing your own interpretations if you are to experience the undulate. If you need to learn how to perform astrological or symbolic interpretations, please contact The Prosperos. The Prosperos teaches how to think, never what to think. For that reason, do not simply read someone's report like a newspaper horoscope. Please do your own archetypal interpretations and your own Translations. Look at how these nodal transits aspect your own chart. The lunar nodes are the guideposts of your ontological journey. Where do the current Nodes and Planets fall on your natal chart? Do the Nodes and Planets make any major (opposition or conjunction) aspects to natal planets? What do these Nodes and Planets intuitively signify to you?

Use the Nodes in the context of the MoonWobble as a spotlight to Self-Encounter any tension at that moment in time of your chart. Use the Nodes as a spotlight to freeze-frame and be self-aware of what tension you are feeling and experiencing. Translate and RHS that tension to experience the joy of flow. If you don’t know how to Translate or RHS, contact The Prosperos. The North Node expands consciousness intentionally while the South Node expands consciousness accidentally. These Nodal spotlights are not on in Moonwobble aspect all the time, use this energy wisely.

Like all other psychological influences, the best way to stay in control is knowing! People who know the least about these things are the most subject to the influences. People who know about them, can act upon the situation, not react to it! Don’t just translate! Channel the unusual flow of energy into an unpredictable good!
