MoonWobble Weather Patterns

Peak is 22- 23 - 24 August 2012


This Summer MoonWobble of 2012 concludes our Lunar Nodal Axis of Gemini/Sagittarius for this cycle. Our purpose as Translators and Ontologists is to transcend the three-dimensional mind, the shadowy side of problems. MoonWobbles are potent archetypal gifts to identify experiential and existential 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 (Sunday, July 29, 2012) before the peak as personal irritability is evident, entering a critical period some 12 days (Saturday, August 11, 2012) before the peak to a maximum build-up (Thursday, August 23, 2012). Allow the release of energy letting up a few days after the peak (Sunday, August 26, 2012). The affect is gradually integrated over 12 days after the peak (Tuesday, September 4, 2012).

While all signs are affected, those with planets or indicators in Sagittarius, Gemini, Virgo and Pisces will be most strongly influenced. Remember that everyone has at least Houses of Gemini (Social Survival Dynamic Guide - Air - Future, Ruler - Mercury), Sagittarius (Social Survival Dynamic Changer - Fire - Future, Ruler - Jupiter), Virgo (Social Survival Dynamic Container - Earth, Past, Ruler - Mercury), and Pisces (Social Survival Dynamic - Water - Past, Ruler - Neptune).  Social Survival.  Mutable Quadruplicity (qualities).  Fire and Air and Earth and Water.  A predominantly wet chart.   Overwhelmingly channeled emotion with an underlying 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, Mars (Retrograde) in Virgo is at the East Bending of the Nodes, and  therefore Square both the North Node and the South Node.  Neptune is dignified in its native Pisces, and is Square both the North Node and the South Node, and is Retrograde.  

Interpretation and Fixed Star Framework

As an archetypal phase of the life cycle of transformation, the 1st degree South Lunar Node in Gemini illustrated by a glass-bottomed boat drifting over under-sea wonders.  We see the depth of realization in a consciousness constantly in touch with the sources of life. Sensitiveness to collective images.

The Sun at the 1st degree of Virgo illustrates in a portrait, the best traits are idealized.  The shaping power of idea or ideal over outer form and behavior.  Completeness of realization.  Pure aggrandizement.  Intent.

The Sun is snuggled with the fixed star Regulus, one of the Royal Stars of Persia, at the Heart of the Lion and Foundation of Leo.  The Watcher of the North.  This promises the receipt of honors and rewards, provided one does not seek revenge with vengeance.  Scheat at the North Node is a star of intellect and thinking, in the constellation of Pegasus.  Also conjunct the North Node is Dubhe, an Arabic abbreviation meaning the Back of the Great Bear.  The quiet strength of the position you already hold.  Although potentially martial, this is a feminine strength of intuition rather than physical strength to overcome enemies.

The 1st degree of Sagittarius North Node is symbolized by Retired Army Veterans gathered to reawaken old memories.  A basic statement of meaning expressing the cohesive power of social experience. Comradeship, born of collective achievements, which quickens the self. Fervent reunion.

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.
Neptune in the 1st degree of Pisces Neptune is symbolized by a late Saturday afternoon with crowds filling the public market. The social nature of human responsibilities.  A last-moment, joyous rallying to a task.  Seed synthesis at end of cycles.


Mercury goes Retrograde in Leo on July 15, then Direct on August 8.

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!
