MoonWobble Weather Patterns

Peak is 24- 25 - 26 May 2012


This Spring MoonWobble of 2012 begins with Beltane and continues our Lunar Nodal Axis of Gemini/Sagittarius. Our purpose as Translators and Ontologists is to transcend the three-dimensional mind, the shadowy side of problems. MoonWobbles are potentl gifts to identify experiential tension.  Use this jolt of joy wisely for accelerated evolution, participation in Cosmic Intention, and transcendance 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.  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.

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 (Monday, April 30, 2012) before the peak as personal irritability is evident, entering a critical period some 12 days (Sunday, May 13, 2012) before the peak to a maximum build-up (Friday, May 25, 2012).  Allow the release of energy letting up a few days after the peak (Monday, May 28, 2012). The affect is gradually integrated over 12 days after the peak (Wednesday, June 6, 2012). 

While all signs are affected, those with planets or indicators in Sagittarius and Gemini will be most strongly influenced. Remember that everyone has at least Houses of Gemini (Social Survival Dynamic Guide - Air - Future, Ruler - Mercury) and Sagittarius (Social Survival Dynamic Changer - Fire - Future, Ruler - Jupiter).  Social Survival.  Fire and Air.  A cold, wet, phlegmatic chart - looking for fuel or just intense inspiration.  The North Node (intentionally beckoning forward) is in Sagittarius and the South Node (unintentional, unplanned) in Gemini.  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 T-Field. The South Node is then an unintentional expansion of consciousness into unknown terrain, an A-Field.  For an added emphasis, Neptune in its native Pisces is Square both the North Node and the South Node.  This particularly intensive Moonwobble begins with Beltane and unfolds against a tightening backdrop of Uranus Square Pluto (both Retrograde).  Given the additional Perigee Moon and two eclipses, anticipate some shifts.

Interpretation and Fixed Star Framework

As an archetypal phase of the life cycle of transformation, the 5th degree Sun in Gemini and 5th degree South Lunar Node in Gemini illustrates an explosive tendency of repressed feelings and root emotions, as symbolized by a revolutionary magazine asking for action.  Nestled in the fixed star Markab - the Saddle of Pegasus - indicating the reliant consistency of principle.  With the fixed star Acubens - the Scarab Beetle - which acts as the foundation of life.  Thus, the Gateway of Life, Renewal and Resurrection.  A Healer who sees life as sacred.  Mercury is also conjunct, for added psychopompic communication.

The 5th degree of Sagittarius North Node emphasizes a poised and wise approach to existence based on a clear perception of unconscious factors and their operation.  Symbolized by an old owl sitting alone on the branch of a large tree.

The Sagittarius/Gemini nodal axis is the axis of social responsibility, and very mutable.  Focus is important.  North Node in Sagittarius inspires self-reliance and personal responsibility at the level of South Node in Gemini's sense of ethical communication.  Neptune in native Pisces is Square this Axis for added creative tension.

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 someones 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 and Eclipse 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!
