Harvest Moon Lunar Eclipse: AVOID SELF-BLAME. You are doing your best, EVEN WHEN YOU AREN’T.

This moment is about meeting yourself outside the cross of life and time, understanding your projections and how you can meet Spirit in the middle for transformation.


A Buddhist Prayer of Forgiveness
If I have harmed any one in any way,
either knowingly or unknowingly
through my own confusions,
I ask their forgiveness.
If any one has harmed me in any way,
either knowingly or unknowingly
through their own confusions,
I forgive them.
And if there is a situation
I am not yet ready to forgive,
I forgive myself for that.
For all the ways that I harm myself,
negate, doubt, belittle myself,
judge or be unkind to myself,
through my own confusions,
I forgive myself.

“Our Milky Way’s galactic center (GC) is at a right angle to the super galactic center (SGC), because of this the GC and the SGC are closely related to the Earth’s equinoxes and solstices and therefore the CardinalCross.” ~http://www.souledout.org/  

I have denied the fact that the outer world is the inner reality and have preferred to play the victim.  It’s time for me to express how I feel and prioritize my own well-being.

So Yoganauts!
Firstly, let me apologize for the sheer bulk of these transmissions.  This eclipse is so aspect-dense or “concrescent” (to bastardize Whitehead’s phrase) that I don’t want you to miss any symbols that might be meaningful to you.  My chart is lit up like a neon sign with correlations at this time and it’s so satisfying to feel like the origin of all that is left me a love-note written in stars.  The both/ and? Parts of it read like a death-threat/ransom note/hate mail.  Still, good to have a letter after all these years . . .
I have done as much digging on the SGC as we are going to get before today’s eclipse, but I want to share with you some interesting findings.  Firstly, please check out Planet Waves’ Youtube video on the present moment:
This is the most credible source of information on the SGC (besides Phillip Sedgwick’s Skyscraping ezine–another story) that I have yet found AND is the basis for what I am about to write here.  I don’t think it’s a secret that I disdain the Law of Attraction (along with many other tenets) of the New Age Cosmology.  I don’t like hierarchies (even yogic ones) and I think what matters most in ANY situation is MY highest truth (take that, Catholic education).  So it was a giant relief to find Eric Francis shedding some practical light on how to “cast your vote” during an eclipse that made sense to me and rang true as well.
Setting intentions is what we call the prayer-like thingy we do at the new moon, when we start the cycle.  At this full moon we are experimenting with ACTION.  I know. I know, it’s Mercury retrograde and the sky says ‘wait’ in a lot of ways so I’m not necessarily talking about signing a contract or buying tech or vehicles but I do want to suggest that we try taking a tangible step.  I want to suggest that you bring spirit to matter in some physical way.  So here’s my idea:
I’m going to identify my biggest hang up, my most gigantic deadlock, the one that is just too big and will take too many years to unravel (Pisces) and I’m going to offer it up (Mars) against the backdrop of universal consciousness (SGC).  This thing is a source of anger, an ancestral holding, generations labored under this problem and it has remained unresolved.  It’s like “the existential wound” from my perspective.  (In my case this is going to be about money/power and its kissing cousin–war/love.  There, that’s as vulnerable as I can take right now.)
In this experiment, I am going to sit down (prolly in the grass) and MAKE CONTACT.  This is a bit different from my usual meditation.  I am seeking the source of cosmic intelligence IN ME.  Look, imagine I am a sunbeam.  As far as I travel away from the sun, the sun is still in me, still my origin.  That’s the thing I am trying to seek.  The SGC is the deep background and is the inward origin, both/and.  This is my personal creation myth; I can access it through my personal vision (yes, that again).  It’s my cosmic homing device.  I am making myself available to the origin of all that is beyond experience, so if it seems familiar or is backloaded with the usual characters, I need to drill down deeper.
That’s all.  I don’t have to make some sort of big deal about it unless I want to.  This is, supposedly, the source of all consciousness after all.  It’s bound to “catch my drift”, however I am going to undergo the formality of actually making this occur.  I am going to see to its HAPPENING. The thing is (in case you haven’t noticed with our “personal truth” experiment) it is really easy to forget the personal vision.  It’s super-simple for the agenda of others to take over our whole lives until we have no say at all. Until we abandon our free will so thoroughly that we destroy instead of create, that we hate instead of love, survive instead of thrive.
Maybe free will is just a muscle that is starting to atrophy in humanity.  I am making a stand here for myself and for those who come after me.  I am going to take my heaviest burden and with no ritual, no intercession, no witness lay it at the feet of the cosmic “what if”, the origin, the thing that had an appetite for this mess before time was time.  Intentions are great, but I sense that this time I need to do some heavy lifting in matter.  I need to learn to see my resources in a new way and identify that the first cause, the origin, source, goddess/god is IN ME.  Not that I am it wholly, or some inflated shit, just that the phone line is open and it’s not OUT THERE.  It’s in here.  In me.
This eclipse is so well aspected to be the point of contact, the moment where a genuine and humble inquiry empowers your own spiritual perspective.  Create and cultivate your inner space, your private self for just a moment today.  Lay down your heaviest burden there.  Hand it over.  Surrender your deepest anger.  Unburden.  Release.  Let it go. That’s all.  Don’t do some smarmy, New Age certified hokey-pokey and turn yourself around, never think of it again or whatever else unless it really serves you. Just give yourself and what is divine in you an honest moment with the nature of your anger and the root of your pain.  You are the living ancestor of your line.  Your ability to create change, to create freedom is unprecedented.  And who knows, the part of you that started all this just might be listening today.
I really dislike telling you what to do (the irony!), but I sense this could work.  Imana try it.
Nondenominational, unconditional blessings on everything you are and those in Standing Rock.
Mind your heart,

Follow your inner moonlight; don’t hide the madness. ~ Allen Ginsberg

These superstructures [SGC and GC] are literally perpendicular to each other with their centers at the zero points of the Cardinal signs. [GC/Capricorn/December solstice – SGC/Libra/September equinox].

At the September equinox the sun moves into the sign Libra and the super galactic plane at the SGC, the hub of this super galaxy, while the earth enters Aries and moves into the super galactic plane opposite the SGC, away from the inner hub at the outer rim of this super galaxy. The sun reaches the climactic mid-point in the sign Scorpio (Halloween, Days of the Dead); the earth reaches this point in Taurus. Afterwards each begins to move out of the super galactic plane toward the galactic plane.~http://www.souledout.org/

“If you like synchronicity, here is something interesting. Through all of 2009 and part of 2010, Chiron was in a conjunction with both the ancient and modern rulers of Pisces — Jupiter and Neptune in late Aquarius. So Chiron enters Pisces all charged up on Pisces energy, and we have been getting wave pulses of this combination for many months. The combination of Chiron with any Pisces factor is focusing that which was previously invisible.

So what do we think of when we think of Pisces? What is our experience of this energy? It’s a fairly wide spectrum, ranging from the highest reaches of the imagination to our direct experience of God or soul to the most liberating and soulful erotic pleasure; to the depths of denial, deception, drink and drugs. (Neptune has a lot of keywords starting with the letter D.) In all, Chiron in Pisces is about helping us see what we have been missing or not paying attention to.

If we focus the strengths of Pisces, that would feel like clarifying our vision for our lives. Most of us have a really hard time with this; many people have no interest at all. Pisces is full of ideas, ideals, and the desire to transcend physicality. Which of these work and which do not? Chiron is calling for a sober assessment of these, to test for what are authentic values and which are things we see through our rosy, New Age glasses.  You could look at Chiron in Pisces as the focusing of dharma: acting as if to hold the world together.” ~www.planetwaves.com

“On September 16, 2016, the sun exits the constellation Leo and enters the constellation Virgo. The sun will remain in front of the constellation Virgo the Maiden until it enters the constellation Libra the Scales on October 30. Please notice that we’re talking about astronomical constellations here, not astrological signs. You’ll find dates of sun’s entry into each constellation of the zodiac, here.

When the equinox arrives on September 22, 2016 – bringing autumn to the Northern Hemisphere and spring to the Southern Hemisphere – the sun will be in front of the constellation Virgo. And so it has been for thousands of years.

However, over the long course of time, the sun hasn’t always been in front of Virgo at the Northern Hemisphere’s autumnal equinox (Southern hemisphere’s spring equinox).

And, what’s more, the sun won’t remain in front of this constellation at the September equinox, indefinitely.

It was in the year 730 B.C. that the Northern Hemisphere’s autumnal equinox sun passed out of the constellation Libra and into the constellation Virgo. Looking into the future, the September equinox sun will cross over into the constellation Leo in the year 2439. These dates are based upon the constellation boundaries as defined by the Astronomical Astronomical Union in the 1930s.”

“The Moon is already in Pisces and heading toward the eclipse this Friday.  That coupled with a Venus opposite Uranus and Mars square the Sun makes this an unpredictable, crazy, eye-opening weekend. You may see deep down into yourself (or have another reveal yourself to you in surprising ways) and even be scared at what you find.  What you will find are the emotions, the passions, and the desires that make you YOU.  You as a unique expression of Source with a special gift that only YOU can give. Time to get out there and strut your stuff!

With this Jupiter in Libra, I’m excited to partner with others and co-create something new together.  Where two or more are gathered, an alchemy exists that neither could imagine or create alone.  
If two eclipses aren’t enough, now we have a third!  The first in mid August was Brahma, envision the future in order to create it.  The second was Sept. 1, Vishnu, gather together the resources, strength and power to create the change.  Now we have Shiva, out with the old and bring in the new!” ~Kaypacha Lescher at www.newparadignastrology.com

“In the sign of watery and illusive Pisces, and following the Virgo Solar Eclipse, we are being advised to seek solace and healing, even in the midst of turmoil. Especially if you are still in turmoil. The Lunar Eclipse is in the same degree of the recent Jupiter/Chiron opposition that we had in August. This is the one that had to do with feeling overwhelmed trying to be everywhere at once; trying to fix everything and everyone; generating deep wells of compassion, but then putting aside our own needs in order to be of service to others. In the process many found themselves worn out and limping along on the last threads of whatever energy they had. We’re still recovering.
During Eclipse season, the veil between the worlds becomes thinner, and the capacity for the Soul to effect a healing catharsis is greater now than it would be at other times. Chiron, the Wounded Healer, is closely involved with this Eclipse, as is the Spiritual Warrior, Mars in Sagittarius. Mars/Chiron could expose some sort of pain or deep discomfort that needs to be healed. (Krishnamurti!  Ya think??!!!~L) The impulse is to want to do something immediately, to take some sort of action now. The key is to do so skillfully, without causing even more damage, than has already been done.
Denial, or inaction is not an option either. To repress or avoid facing these wounds that are being exposed, is to miss a very important opportunity. But there is such a thing as skill in the performance of action. And couple that with compassion, and understanding, and you might just have a formula for success. To act with anger will only wound, and further subject you to drowning. To act from a place of compassion, wanting everyone to be free from suffering, will ultimately lead to healing.” ~www.astrologybylauren.com
Highly recomended that you read her horoscope for the week if your water has been choppy.  Compassionate. Please substitute the word “Alignment” for “Healing”.  You are not sick, you are out of bounds. The riptide pulled you beyond the buoy is all.~L)

This part is technical.  For geeks only!!
“The Moon, Sun and Minerva square the asteroid Pholus (24 Sagittarius). Pholus is associated with the nature of revelation that – once known – cannot be unknown – and so creates an irreversible effect. It speaks to the power of knowledge, and with it forms of change that it necessitates. It ripples through the cosmos, affecting us through the generational lines. According this fantastic article (on the power of Pholus and what it can bring to you – astropost.blogspot.com/2010/04/pholus-files.html ), it is also an energy that can put a stop to addictions. I read that as a call to end the compulsive, sub-conscious impulses that lead us to karmic decisions, cycles and experiences that we are ready to integrate and ultimately, no longer be governed by.

Now … the Galactic Center of the Milky Way is at 27 Sagittarius, 3 degrees away from Pholus. You´re going to find your paths, guides, mentors, gurus, teachers, astrologers, oracles, etc. to profound be way-showers at this time. Sometimes you will be lovingly brought to a new space or direction, and at other times, forcibly kicked out. You may feel drawn to or repelled from a particular path or person – and that is orient. It is all part of your initiation unto a new journey or chapter.

With this powerful energy of revelation comes change. The information you receive now may sweep you off your feet in a good way – or – make you feel like the rug you´re standing on has just been pulled away from underneath. Different people will respond differently and so there is no hard and fast rule. I would recommend grounding practices, whilst consciously choosing to remain present, open (and protected) to whatever emerges through this transit.
The healing potential of this eclipse is emphasized as the Sun sextiles, whilst the Moon trines Panacea ´the cure to all ills´ at 23 Scorpio. Those with bodies near 23-24 Aquarius (My Mars is 21~L) will experience this as a powerful Yod (Finger of Fate), bring you swiftly to karmic crossroads. Here you will choose what ideological framework you continue to situate your ideals and sense of individuality within as you navigate the depths in the search of healing, or paths of service. It is in this search that Panacea offers her remedies

With Chiron at 22 Pisces and Atlantis (it’s an astreroid~L) at 22 Cancer (my birth degree!~L), we see the role of psychic healing, wounding, trauma and energies that connect with past-lifetimes in oceanic/underwater civilizations heightened. Larimar (the gemstone) can be an intense, but effective catalyst in working through the deeper emotions and memories these alignments evoke. Together with Panacea, Isis and the Moon, Chiron and Atlantis come together to form a potent Grand Water Trine in the skies. One that brings out a wide range of emotions, intuitive, karmic and psychic possibilities and experiences.

What also strikes me as curious is the fact that the March 2016 New Moon / Total Solar Eclipse also had Chiron conjunct the Moon, just as we now experience. The Wounded Healer asks us to look back to then, and now, to see what lessons we have learnt, and will continue to learn hereafter. There is the choice to transcend a particular cycle of pain and wounding, and another to accept it as a path of service. Neither choice is more sacred than the other and let no one bully you into thinking otherwise. Charoite is a gemstone that can help those seeking clarity on this particular question.
(1) Jupiter conjuncts the Super-Galactic Center (1 Libra)
(2) Mars (23 Sagittarius) trines Psyche (23 Leo) / Phaethon (22 Leo) and Uranus/Eris (23 Aries), creating a Grand Fire Trine at the 23rd degree of all Fire signs
(3) Saturn (10 Sagittarius) squares Neptune (10 Pisces), Eris (23 Aries) conjuncts Uranus (23 Aries), Saturn squares the North Node (11 Virgo) which opposes Neptune and the South Node (11 Pisces)
(4) Vesta (20 Cancer) squares Venus (21 Libra) and Uranus-Eris (23 Aries) I see this as a clarion call to (Pluto in) Capricorn, which gives us the opportunity to reconfigure our visions of power and the role of the feminine in the institutions that contain them.
(5) South Node (11 Pisces) trines whilst North Node (11 Virgo) sextiles Black Moon Lilith and Juno (13 Scorpio)
It is time to realize that the Dark Womb is Sacred Ground, rather than the chamber of shame, neglect, abuse and judgement.  (The both/and element?  It’s time to bring the wounded masculine hero home from the war we asked him to fight–the war against Spirit (which ironically, is the Womb).~L)
Those of you with placements near 11-13 Cancer (my Venus is 10~L) will experience this intensely as a Grand Water Trine, whereas those with placements near 11-13 (My Chiron is 13~L) Aries will experience this as a pivotal Yod (Finger of Fate).
General Gemstone Tip. Try working with Sugilite. I find it resonant with the energies of the Goddess, in her many, many forms (and states of formlessness).

Blessings and Love,

Priestess Bairavee Balasubramaniam PhD

“We are drawn into a loss of ego and a surrender to a greater purpose. All the while the Sun in Virgo, which is the maiden with grain, represents the rich potential of the harvest, the sense of security that the world will provide what we need.

So, do we go with the high vibe of faith in a spiritual reality and a recognition of our human connection to each other, or do we turn away from spiritual inspiration and retreat into our separated ego? Do we feel the security of being a part of a greater natural abundance or do we fall into anxiety about lack and insecurity? These are the questions posed by this Lunar Eclipse.”~www.webvictoria.com

“A Harvest Moon Eclipse takes place today…
What is special about this current Harvest Moon is that it occurs near the fall equinox… It’s the signal of balance (Libra) where the length of the day and the night are the same… It brings with it the quality of “starting over”… Or renewed sense of harmony and balance.”~www.weeklyhoroscope.com
