Marathoners on their last leg, or anyone pushing through walls of self-imposed limitation experience an euphoria, the "runner's high". We live for those ecstatic thrills induced by extreme pleasure, while being absorbed by one or by an orchestral interplay of all five senses, the spirit-mind-body troika intensified.

ENDORPHINATION is so much more
than an organic, neurotransmitter cocktail of stimulated peptide hormones.

The New Moon today, 10 April 2013, occurs in close proximity to Venus, Mars and Eris. Thematically, this stellium of astro-fluences surrounds the issues of empowerment versus brute force, the shadow play dynamic of anima/animus duality that comes down to all-encompassing fear of emptiness.

As music is open space, the silence between tones, ONTOS, the primeval state of being, is emptiness, a vacuum, the womb gestating PRIMA MATERIA before its manifestation. Analogous replication of Earth's fecundity, the ANIMA MUNDI, creates an inner yearning, a yin desire seeking fulfillment. Conflict results when, rather than remaining comfortably present in the void, trusting that needs will be met, yang aggressiveness dominates in order to satisfy a hunger.  Against all odds, the masculine principle will attack obstacles and opponents standing in the way. Thus, essentially, a lot of decisive action is forced, mobilized by fear of naked emptiness. Consequently, a litany of justifications ensue over unquenchable wants conquered by costly measures.

Manifestation is a good thing.  That is provided the motivation behind it benefits the highest good for all. Are the choices at hand impelled by beneficent transpersonal guidance? Because, Lord knows, look around and see just how many best intentions paved a superhighway to hell on earth.
