             Spring MoonWobble for April 18, 2014 at The White House

MoonWobble Chart 2014 April 18


 MoonWobble Weather Patterns

Peak is 17 - 18 - 19 April 2014


Our Old Gods gather once again in clanship to celebrate our MoonWobble.  We now shift into 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 (Tuesday, March 25, 2014) before the peak as personal irritability is evident, entering a critical period some 12 days (Sunday, April 6, 2014) before the peak to a maximum build-up (Friday, April 18, 2014). Allow the release of energy letting up a few days after the peak (Monday, April 21, 2014). The affect is gradually integrated over 12 days after the peak (Wednesday, April 30, 2014).

The South Node (unintentional, unplanned) is in Aries Conjunct Sun, both Aries and the South Node are ruled by Mars.  The North Node (intentionally beckoning forward) is in Libra, both Libra and the North Node are ruled by Venus.  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.  Fire and Air.  A hot, blustery chart.  Aries deals with war.  Libra deals with compromise, agreements, deals.  A delicate balance between war and diplomacy.  Sun in Aries is Exalted, and in its own Triplicity so stronger.  But when coupled with the South Node in Aries, they are weakened.  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 transformation, the 28th degree Sun in Aries Conjunct South Node in Aries is illustrated by a large audience confronting the performer who disappointed their expectations.  The necessity for mature preparation and self-criticism.  Key word is Responsiblity.  How to handle the situation.

The 28th degree North Lunar Node in Libra is illustrated by a person becoming aware of spiritual forces surrounding and assisting them.  The realization, at any level of existence, that one is never alone, and that the "community" - visible or invisible - is sustainging one's efforts.  Key issue is Inner Assurance.

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.  Mars is in Libra, thereby weakening the North Node in Libra.  North Node in Libra is ruled by a dignified Venus, which is in nebulous yet empathetic Pisces.  This suggests a greater emphasis on diplomacy, then war.  North Node in Libra is in the house of communication.  South Node conjunct Sun in Aries is in the house of travel, higher mind, ethics.

This Annular Solar Eclipse is a Saros 16 South wherein individuals find themselves wasting energy or misdirecting motivation, particularly when dealing with groups.  No real action should be taken by the individual.  This Moonwobble teaches us to use the individual energy within a cooperative balance meeting the needs of the group.


 2014 is a year of rare, multiple planetary configurations.  We are in the sixth year of the Cardinal Climax, a water grand trine and kite formation occurs at the start of Moonwobble.  Called the Grand Bargain, this is the opportunity to reach consensus between the social, corporate and political needs.  A chance to solve the debt problem.  Then a beautiful Grand Sextile.  While the grand trine in water may collectively lead us to a point of acceptance and forgiveness, it also means to dissolve boundaries.  This removal of obstacles can mean many things from floors or ceilings falling out of the stock market to sudden solutions to problems.  The flaw in the diamond is the unpredictable Uranus in Aries.  The way through this dilemma is to service the highest good of people yet unborn, not a self-centered me.

Second astrological peak of the Cardinal Climax which started in August 2013, continues through April 2014, with the most intense period being April 20-25, 2014.  Uranus (at 13 Aries) Square Pluto Rx (at 13 Capricorn) Square (part of a Grand Cross with Mars Rx (at 14 Libra) and Jupiter (at 13 Cancer)) will form close Square to the U.S. Natal Sun (at 13 Cancer)-Saturn (at 14 Libra) Square, November 1.  This exact waxing Square of Uranus-Pluto on April 21, 2014, is the 5th of 7 direct Squares.  Russia's Mars is at 13 Capricorn.  China's Mercury is at 13 Libra.  Signaling the clash of the old order of enrenched power (Pluto in Capricorn) and the forces of individuation, freedom, and revolution (Uranus in Aries).

Fun facts from history, Social Security Act became law during Uranus/Pluto Square in the 1930s, Medicare Act became law during a Uranus/Pluto Conjunction during the 1960s, and Affordable Care Act became law during current Uranus/Pluto Square during the 2010s. 

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!
