October Moonwobble Report for October 30, 2013


 MoonWobble Weather Patterns

Peak is 29 - 30 - 31 October 2013


The Clan of the Old Gods gather at Halloween to celebrate our MoonWobble.  The Lunar Nodal Axis of Scorpio/Taurus cycle continues.  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.  

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 (Saturday, October 5, 2013) before the peak as personal irritability is evident, entering a critical period some 12 days (Friday, October 18, 2013) before the peak to a maximum build-up (Wednesday, October 30, 2013). Allow the release of energy letting up a few days after the peak (Sunday, November 2, 2013). The affect is gradually integrated over 12 days after the peak (Monday, November 11, 2013).

While all signs are affected, those with planets or indicators in Scorpio and Taurus will be most strongly influenced. Remember that everyone has at least Houses of Scorpio (Family Survival Dynamic - Water - Past, Ruler - Mars) and Taurus (Family Survival Dynamic Container - Earth - Past, Ruler - Venus).  Family Survival Dynamics.  Earth and Water.  A warm and predominantly muddy and murky chart.  Humidity, flooding, mud-slides, failing structure.  Emotion is channeled and tempered with insight. Scorpio deals with business, authority, discipline and regeneration, also revenge and jealousy.  Taurus deals with the home, land, mines, earth and agriculture - fertilizer.  South Node (unintentional, unplanned) in Taurus is Trine Mars in Virgo and Pluto in Capricorn (Uranus in Aries is Square Pluto).  The North Node (intentionally beckoning forward) is in Scorpio and Conjunct Sun in Scorpio and Conjunct Mercury in Scorpio and Conjunct Saturn in Scorpio. 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 7th degree North Lunar Node in Scorpio is illustrated by deep-sea divers being lowered into the waters.  Purposeful, daring plunge into life-mysteries.  Fulfillment of individaul selfhood through study of unconscious energies.

The 7 degree South Lunar Node in Taurus is illustrated a woman of Samaria coming to draw water from The Well.  The gaining of perspective by a return to ancient sources of being.  Introspective approach to collective unconscious.

The Scorpio/Taurus 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 Scorpio/Taurus axis relates very strongly to the myth of Persephone. The core issue of self-worth from sustaining and maintaining. South Node in Taurus builds and stabilizes solid foundations of structure with filial piety and beauty, while North Node in Scorpio breaks down these foundations to plant seeds of growth. Change and growth like history come in cycles. 

Taurus and Scorpio are money signs, signs of consumption and excretion, creation and destruction.  Venus the goddess of love and beauty rules Taurus, while Mars, the god of war, rules Scorpio.  Money is the way we measure the energy flow of our lives.  This flow of energy - in at Taurus, out at Scorpio, needs Spring cleaning every few years.  North Node in Scorpio, the sign of debt.


We have Procyon - The One that Comes Before (Sirius, The Shining One), with Mercury in Foundation.  One who can adapt to changing situations.  This shows a real gift for problem solving.  Sadalsuud - the Luckiest of the Lucky, with Saturn in Foundation.  There is genius or lucky; ideas and insights that are of benefit to others.  The greatest benefit for the greatest number.  There is Spica - A Gift from the Goddess - wanting to use one's talents for the greatest possible good.  Spica has been walking the path of the underworld, but now emerges into visibility.  There is Castor, One of the Twins of Gemini (the other being Pollux), with the Sun in Foundation.  These two stars are the classic twins of the heavens and represent the essence of the universal struggle with polarity. Seemingly, this constant struggle with polarities produces writers.

2013 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.

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.

Take advantage of the Mercury Retrograde in which we may find ourselves outside the boundaries of linear clock-time and can view the freeze-frame of our experiences.  This borderland state is what Thane called liminality.  The term comes from the Latin limen meaning threshold, indicating the transitional space in between two points, and also the transition from one stage in life to another (Peay, 2004, pp. 93-96).

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!
