Summer Moonwobble Report for August 4, 2013

 MoonWobble Weather Patterns

Peak is 3- 4 - 5 August 2013


The Old Gods gather this Summer for a rare multiple configuration within which our MoonWobble will make a perhaps minor cameo appearance.  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.

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 (Wednesday, July 10, 2013) before the peak as personal irritability is evident, entering a critical period some 12 days (Tuesday, July 23, 2013) before the peak to a maximum build-up (Sunday, August 04, 2013). Allow the release of energy letting up a few days after the peak (Tuesday, August 6, 2013). The affect is gradually integrated over 12 days after the peak (Friday, August 16, 2013).

While all signs are affected, those with planets or indicators in Leo, Scorpio and Taurus will be most strongly influenced. Remember that everyone has at least Houses of Leo (Individual Survival Dynamic Changer - Fire - Future, Ruler - Sun), Scorpio (Family Survival Dynamic - Water - Past, Ruler - Mars) and Taurus (Family Survival Dynamic Container - Earth - Past, Ruler - Venus).  Individual and Family Survival.  Fire, 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 in Taurus is Conjunct Sun, Mars and Mercury all in Taurus, point to an energized potency.  The North Node (intentionally beckoning forward) is in Scorpio and the South Node (unintentional, unplanned) in Taurus. 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.  The nodes square focused to Sun indicating new structure is being generated.

Interpretation and Fixed Star Framework

As an archetypal phase of the life cycle of transformation, the 12th degree Sun in Leo is illustrated by an evening party of adults on a lawn illumined by fancy lanterns.  This companionable setting demonstrates that self-expression is meaningless without recognition.  The "lawn" and "lanterns" are cultivated bits of culture, expressing a sophisticated involvement in externals and slick wit.

the 12th degree North Lunar Node in Scorpio is illustrated by an official Embassy Ball.  Officials represent their nation.  This symbolizes the need to share the true essence of selfhood.  A group-consciousness of the nation in a ritualized display of power, prestige and wealth.  The highest level of cultural interplay in full dress.

The 12 degree South Lunar Node in Taurus is illustrated by a young couple window shopping.  Symbolizing the outward longing for direct participation with society.  A substantiation through the prospect for growth.

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.



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.

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!
