The high road or low road.....A Cosmological dance!

A sojourn to the Depths of Hades!

I have  talked several times here and on Facebook over the last few weeks that Hermes & Aphrodite have been in an averse state referred to as Outrebounds...(the earth’s plane or tilt to the ecliptic, 23:27 degrees) this happens  when a heavenly body exceeds the limit of our Earths plane.
(‘Outer Bounds...parallel declination...something to think about....? November 5th 2011.
Is Hermes & Aphrodite able to reach you??.... Is it any wonder.... the World at large including...Egypt....and Money Markets are up and down......? Perplexity, Confusion reigns....with Venus.....It’s about ....Uniting...Money....Unification...Reconciliation....and Mercury....Communication......Commerce....Negotiation...Contestation...Destabilisation
As spoken previously ’ But what makes this unusual is that as Mercury entered the shadow...3 has been outer bounds...meaning its declinations is more than -23 degrees 27’..... ( earths plane or tilt to the ecliptic)......and there is more... when it stations.... it will be in a parallel declination outer bounds conjunction with Venus...this is a very rare Event....when planets are outer reach with the Earth they are said to be wondering in a  void.....unable to function or administer to their affairs.’)

Both Venus and Mercury have been in this position since early November. This happens mostly to these two heavenly bodies as they are always close to Helios the Sun God. And when he moves towards his point most distant North or South of the equator....referred to as the Solstice, winter – Northern hemisphere Tropic of Capricorn – December 21-22 /Summer- June 21-22- Tropic of Cancer, Mercury or Venus may also be in one of two position referred to as Perihelion (closest approach towards the Sun in their orbit around it or Aphelion, which is the planets most distant position in its orbit around the Sun.

It is said that when a planet exceeds the Earth plane or bounds it is.... no longer in touch with its earthly creatures, and unable to attend to its affairs. After all these Wondering planetary bodies were known as Gods and as such when in this rare state how could we expect the God too be providing guidance to us earth bound mortals.
Hermes-Mercury who has stationed and is now retrograding will re-enter the Earths plane on November 29th 2011, and on that day Venus will reach its Aphelion.
Aphrodite (Venus) has also moved onwards from the image of the Archer -Sagittarius and into the image of The Goat Horned One –Capricorn. This will change the way in which the Goddess of Light (or as the Greeks called her The Light – Bringer), attends to her duties. When she is in her Grandfathers (Kronos – Saturn) residence she must be more conservative and proceed or perform in what are called the Old ways. She has recently been in the home of Zeus-Jupiter –Sagittarius, where she was to be stabilising the affairs of those who attend social gatherings.

But owing to this state that I have referred to as Outrebounds, has she been able to??

She is far distant from the warmth of the Sun God and also drifting in the cosmological soup. Furthermore Aphrodite while roaming in this state which resembles a sea of mist is about to encounter the lord of the underworld, Hades – Pluto. She will do this while still wandering, which begs the will she react to this encounter?? This meeting is set in motion from 29th of November, at 3 degrees Capricorn when she is at her most distant position in relationship to her orbit around the Sun. There meeting will last several days with the union taking place on December 2nd, and she will emerge transformed, altered in some way.....on December 4th.
Finally on December 14th, 2011 @ 07:52hrs AEDT, Sydney, rising out of depths of underworld she will re-enter the Earthly plane. So folks as we are constantly reminded by the works left to us from the giants of antiquity, not all astronomical/astrological transits are the same. As we find  mirrored in our life...... change is on the one hand random....... but also seemly ordered!!!!

Starry, Starry Night

Starry, Starry Night

Starry, starry night.

Paint your palette blue and grey;
Look out on a summer's day,

 With eyes that know the darkness in my soul.
Shadows on the hills,

 Sketch the trees and the daffodils,
Catch the breeze and the winter chills,
In colours on the snowy linen land.

Now I understand what you tried to say to me,
How you suffered for your sanity,
How you tried to set them free.
They would not listen, they did not know how.
Perhaps they'll listen now.

Title: Don McLean - Vincent (Starry, Starry Night) lyrics©

Aptly named-Starry Night....In the coming Month of November some very interesting, fascinating, enthralling and intriguing out of the ordinary astronomical/astrological Events are about to transcend our consciousness.

Firstly on November 10, 2011, Hermes (Mercury who is also outer-bounds at a declination -23˚57’) who has been trying so hard over the last month or more to catch up with Aphrodite (Venus) joins her, although not fully, at 9 degrees of Sagittarius.

So what so special about this union, well this will be an encounter with the Royal Watcher of the West,......Where the Dead or Transformed are known to wonder....the sinking into the abyss, void or chasm of the underworld.

The Fiery Red and Emerald Green fixed Star Antares rules this timeless portion of the universe.

Now Kronos (Saturn) will be with the Golden-Yellow fixed Star Arcturus and Goddess of Knowledge Spica.........On the same day Mars the lord of the Scorpion will be co-joined to Shining White Royal Star and Watcher of the North Regulus.

So...Starry Night is our Theatres theme for this Month.......Furthermore The Exalted Taurus Moon will be passing by Lord of the Sky (rx Jupiter) at the exalted degrees of the Lady of the Night Selene.....

On November 11, 2011, a Full Moon will occur at 18 degrees Taurus in the Confines of Jupiter, while Ares and Poseidon are in opposition. November 12, Mars enters the Image of the Virgin Virgo and the Lord of the Image Mercury begins to Slow, he just gives up on his pursuit of the Mistress of the Sea Aphrodite.

Hermes (Mercury) is running out of energy and needs to refuel the Lady of Lake just has to many appointments to spend ideal Time hearing the gossip; she’s on a mission...! As she pass Rahu (North Node of the Moon) moving towards her encounter with underworld Lord Hades (Pluto), on December 2.
Meanwhile on November 23, Hermes finally comes to a standstill (Station) at 20 degrees Sagittarius.

The very next day there is a Super New Moon (New Moon is at its Perigee or closest orbit to the Earth)......And this is a Partial Solar Eclipse. Saros cycle 14 North! This eclipse numbered astrologically as Saros cycle 14 North holds some really intriguing aspects through its psychological correlation.

 According to Bernadette Brady (Eagle and the Lark) “this is a peculiar eclipse family, heralding an acute time of confusion in personal relationships, unexpected happening in finical maters, and possible illness. Unrequited love, despair, confusion, a draining of energy, a peculiar turn of events. No important decisions should be made concerning incoming events as t is too much confusion and possible delusion to make clear judgments.”

 So Folks book your seats now for the Great November Theatre is about to start.
