KUNDALINI OR SNAKE IN THE GRASS?
Natal Chart for Year of the Black Water Snake
(Click on image to enlarge)
Who said I was traditional. I like to breathe fresh prana into old concepts and see what materializes. Studying the non-traditional, self-designed horary chart for the commencement of Year of the Black Water Snake, one of the most interesting configurations I see are two interlocking obtuse triangles. From the perspective of the ASC and the IC: Obtuse Triangle One is comprised of Saturn sextile Pluto sextile Mars, Mercury and Chiron. Obtuse Triangle Two is constructed by Venus sextile Uranus sextile Jupiter. Notice how the two triangles form a bowl stting right at the bottom of the Aquarian-Pisces ocean floor. <The plot thickens> Saturn at the same respective point as Venus forms a square, as does Pluto squaring Uranus at their respective points. Have I lost you? Just wait---it looks as though Saturn and Venus are playing the role of PREDATOR. While, Pluto and Uranus could very well be the BETRAYER. Interesting----betrayer and predator themes. Sound familiar?
The cosmic planetary pile-up in Pisces at the onset of this new year signifies "black water" in the telluric realm, meaning further oceanic crises (Neptune in Pisces). The polluted waters of the deep individual/collective unconscious are riddled with unprocessed shadow vestiges seeking the purification act, integrating the dark recesses of the psyche at the expanding, accelerating speed of light (Chiron in Pisces). The concrete representation of reality constructs (Pluto in Capricorn) that have become too confining, much too small for enlightened minds (Uranus in Aries) to behold and be held by are still dismantling. From the sidelines, Saturn in transformational Scorpio is overseeing the soul alchemy process with a stern hand ensuring everyone gets with the program.
Of course, it's not easy. That's why not everyone will be up for the ordeal. There will be sorrow, heartbreak, tightening the reins, why all those needful things that are inherent within evolutionary syntheses. The price tag for the rewards dawning on the horizon are tremendous. However---"To whom much is given, much is required."
I don't want to be a SPOILER. However, it looks like the narrative surrounds the protection of water as the root of ALL living processes. Period. Next, if we're ever to survive, we need to shed the skin of an aggrandized display of power by adopting a more compassionate social concern for the less evolved. There must be a combined effort to preserve meaningful archetypes in our existing cultures without destroying obstacles. Maintaining an aggressive relationship to the natural world will kill us all.
With that said:
Happy New Year of the Black Water Snake! May this be the year aggression, dominance and territoriality, those lower instinctual motivations associated with the reptilian brain, are quickened into a refined enlightenment. Could it be the much feared, maligned biblical serpent is an admonishing symbolic embodiment of the writhing negative attributes above? Thus, may we demonstrate the empowerment of "to thine own self be true" by being a virtuous paragon while relinquishing sense of entitlement through a compassionate social concern for the less evolved. May we summon the nascent humanity that has been stored away in our muscles, bones, fascia, DNA, pineal whereby birthing a new biopsychic, liquid-light body race. May this herald a new world emerging. Even if it's just a high-minded thought for now, may we envision a world where there is cooperation with the natural beauty and cycles of Gaia, without borders, where everyone is an egalitarian philosopher regent upholding the apotheosis of LOGOS, ETHOS, PATHOS.
