On January 22nd we have the Sun in Aquarius when it enters the 41st hexagram at 2:19 am UT which is 21:19 or 9:19 pm EST on January 21st. At that time we have the Sun in the 41.1, the Earth is detrimented in the 31.1, the Moon is in the 36.6, North node in the 7.2 and the South Node in the 13.2, Mercury is in the 54.1 and exalted due to Pluto also being in the 54, Venus is detrimented in the 41.4, Mars is in the 14.3, Jupiter is in the 43.2, Saturn is detrimented in the 10.6, Uranus in the 42.5, Neptune in the 63.2, and Pluto is in the 54.5.
The 64 hexagrams of the I'Ching have corresponding codons in DNA, and the 41st is the only initiating codon; that begins every string of genetic information. Every genetic sentence begins with the 41st codon, which is the gate of “Decrease”, which begins the stream of "The Human Experiential Way", through the 30 "Fate", then the 36 "Crisis", and finally the 35 "Expectations". This is the stream of desire for experience. Entry of the Sun in the 41st gate initiates a new human cycle on this plane. The 41 comes out of the root, which is a pressure center, so we have the pressure to start something. When the Sun enters in the gate of decrease, in the channel of desire, we have the RAVE NEW YEAR. This influences all forms of life, at the beginning of a new solar cycle. "Decrease" is like the gardener who prunes the plant, so that it can sprout anew.
In the past years we’ve looked at the stages leading up to the Rave New Year. During the Gregorian New Year we had the Sun in the 38(opposition), and the Earth in the 39(obstruction), bringing us to question did we fulfill our purpose, and fulfill our spirit in the past year. This is the beginning of closing down the cycle leading to the Rave New year. Was there a purpose? Then the Sun in the 54 (ambition) and the Earth in the 53 (beginnings) brought us to look forward, who are the correct allies to fulfill our ambition for transformation and new beginnings? Who can I work with? Who can I trust and rely on? Then the 61 (inner truth) and 62 (details) brought us to look within ourselves for inspiration, based on facts. Based on what is possible. Then the Sun in the 60 (limitation) to just let go, closes out the year. Letting go of the seduction of the mind. Letting go of insecurities driving us to believe we need to make something happen. Closing the book on the past to be ready to step forward into a new cycle. To get clean. This is about transcending limitation through acceptance.
So let look at this year’s Rave New Year chart which occurs on January 22nd at 2:19 am UT which is 21:19 or 9:19 pm EST on January 21st. We have one channel definition due to the transit field during the Rave New Year, and Ra said in the past “when you have a definition, you have a life force.” The Earth in the 31 and North Node in the 7 which brings the Channel of the Alpha which is the design of leadership for good or bad. This will be a year where folks are recognized as true leaders, but the more reluctant they are to assume this responsibility the better leaders they become. Being a logical collective channel this confers the ability to understand patterns and trends which can be projected into the future, and can also explain this information logically in a way others can understand. The most important aspect is that these leaders are attuned to the rhythms of the people they are to lead. The defined G center could influence “not-self” folks without, to obsess about where they are headed and where they will find love, and the defined Throat can influence those without to talk about being a leader or not being a leader to attract attention. This is a collective channel, it means there is a need in one way or another for some kind of sharing.
One thing that interests me, regarding leadership and the Global Cycles, which is related to the Precession of the Equinox, is that during 2016 the Color of the 37 first line and 40 first line, changed from the 2nd color “Hope” to the 1st color “Fear”, as it moves toward the 55.6 and 59.6 in 2027. Here in the United States we saw the shift with the end of the Obama presidency, whose candidacy posters actually said “hope” with a picture of Obama, and the beginning of the Trump candidacy and presidency, which seems to be getting a lot of millage from fear. But you can look all over the world, in the news, and in the not self interactions of people in communities, the populace is being driven more from fear than hope, which will be a background color frequency until 2027.
When I look at the circuitry of this year’s Rave New year chart, one thing that is interesting is the emphasis on collective energy, aside from the Sun-Earth which are always in collective gates during the Rave New Year, we have the Moon, the Nodes, Venus, Uranus, and Neptune in collective gates, 2 logic and 4 abstract. So the themes of sharing are going to be strong in the coming year, with folks trying to figure out what they share and who shares with them as the collative sharing networks disintegrate. Here in the United States this stark reality is obvious as government social service systems are being dismantled for the benefit of the very rich. Remember fear is coloring the populace not-self mind. Collective sharing will continue to diminish as part of the break down phase moving towards 2027.
Individual energy is well represented with Mars, Jupiter, and Saturn activating three individual gates the 14, 43, and the 10. These individual activations represent the ability of the individual to empower others simply by being their authentic self. They are acoustic, so we are primarily influenced by the sound of what is authentic. The individual energy in the Rave New Year chart, brings the potential to be empowered during the upcoming year by following your Strategy and Authority, but it also brings melancholy.
There is only one Tribal gate activated in the Rave New Year chart, but it is activated by both Mercury and Pluto in the 54th Gate of Ambition. Given the environment of fear, not-self tribes will use relationships secretly or in public as a way make sure they have the resources to share with their extended families, when others may not. There will be folks who will do anything to get those needs met. I really feel that the color of fear has darkened the environment, and people seem to be more on edge, more in survival mode, especially if they have family members depending on them.
Ra said in his final Rave New Year presentation in January 2011, “We are moving through a greater cycle. We are near the close of it. 2027 will bring a new cycle. It will bring a cycle where the background frequency is going to insist that we have our own authority to guide us, because there will not be an infrastructure to support us.”
Lets break down the detail of this year’s Rave New Year chart. We always start with the Sun in the 41.1, which brings the imagination to make the very best out of very little. With the Sun in the 41st gate of "Contraction (Decrease); The limitation of resources which maximizes development of potential", and the Sun in the 41.1 "Reasonableness: The appropriate delegation of responsibility. exalted: Imagination to make the best out of very little. Coolness, where the energy to release feelings is selective. detrimented: A tendency in understanding, to assume capability, leading to strain. The hothead, the urge to release feelings." The Earth is in the 31st hexagram and gate of "Leadership(Influence); The law of friction, whether active or passive, that engenders transference and thus influence" and always detrimented in the Rave New Year chart in the 31.1 as "Manifestation: Influence cannot exist in a vacuum. detrimented: The absorption of light, that in darkness can only promise manifestation. The unnatural expression of leadership."
With the Sun Earth always being the same on the Rave New Year, I read the chart like I would a solar return chart with only personality activations. Which means this interpretation is like being a reverse "soothsayer" where following your strategy and authority gives you a way to navigate these possibilities. But for the majority of people on this planet, living "not-self" lives, they have no choice but to be conditioned by these energies, and potentially make decisions based on that conditioning. Venus is conjunct the Sun in the 41, where it is detrimented in 41.4 "Correction: Successful adaptation to limitation. detrimented: The expenditure of energy on maintaining relationships rather than on correction. In times of decrease weak associations are shunned as costly, no matter how attractive. The energy which fuels holding on to feelings rather than adapt." There are going to be those that are able to adapt and those that won’t. Adaptability will be valued with Venus in the line of correction.
Of course the Sun and Venus in the 41 brings pressure for emotional new beginnings to be shared with the collective. Also adding to the Rave New Year pressure, are Mercury and Pluto in the 54, in the hexagram of "Ambition (The Marrying Maiden); Interaction in its mundane social context but also one's mystical and cosmic relationships," and Mercury in the 54.1, were it is exalted, due to Pluto also being in the 54, in the line of "Influence: exalted: The ability to achieve through secret relationships, anywhere from the private advisor to the Satanist. Ambition energized through secret relationships which fuel influence," in the realm of communication and personal subjective truth. The pressure to achieve resources for the tribe, through communicating "truth" through secret and perhaps covert means.
Pluto is in the 54.5, “Magnanimity: exalted: The natural authority and actualizing spirit, that in a position of power, can have genuine and fruitful relationships with the less advantaged. (As long as they are in service and make no demands.) The energy for actualizing, that despite this power, fuels fruitful relationships with others. No polarity.” The 54 is looking to find the forces that are correct for you. Your allies. Who is there to help your ambition. Who are the forces that you respect, that you can learn from. Only when you use your strategy and authority can you align yourself to the people in your life who are correct for you.
In the “Human Experiential Way” stream from the Sun and Venus in the 41, we have the Moon in the abstract collective gate of Crisis. The Moon, the reflective light to carry out the message of that Sun, to embody the Sun's message, not as input, as direction, as force, as drive. Inner nature brought to the surface and put on display. Guiding us to the material acceptance of life. Where is the moon pulling humanity to stand up and be on display? It's in the 36th hexagram of "Crisis (The Darkening of the Light); The rule of cycles in which decline is a natural but not enduring stage," The 36 is a fear gate which brings the fear of inadequacy, of not having what is needed for the experience.
The Moon occupies the sixth line of "Justice: The inevitable survival of right. exalted: The knowledge and attendant faith that the powers of darkness eventually destroy themselves. 'Those whom the Gods wish to destroy, they first make mad.' The correctness of crisis when it arises out of pure feelings. detrimented: A profound sorrow and cynicism, that is not diminished by the understanding, that darkness is self-annihilating. The sorrow or cynicism that comes with seeing that despite the correctness of the feelings, there is always crisis." We will see the powers of darkness. Emotion will arise out the friction. This year’s movie will be suspenseful. There may be very little we can do to change the madness of the world, but we can take care of ourselves and those we love.
Adding to the pressure is Neptune bringing doubt as a mental pressure. Neptune brings a veil, and doesn't let us see what things are all about. So for the majority of people are blind to the fact that the collective sharing, that have been in place for hundreds of years, is breaking down, not do to this political party or that, but because we are coming to the end of a major cycle. Neptune is in the 63rd gate of "Doubt (After completion); In the spiral of life, all ends are beginnings," and in the 63.2 "Structuring: exalted: The establishing of a large framework through which achievement can be expanded and shared, compensating others for their contributions while maintaining control of direction. The pressure to share one's doubts with others while still maintaining control. detrimented: Instability in achievement, that when in positions of authority, leads to arrogance and the desire to keep others away from the center of power. Doubts in achievement that can lead to suspicion of others." There will be doubt, and with Neptune; there is confusion in thinking. Stop letting your mind run the show. Find your way in the world by following your strategy and authority.
Mars is in the undefined Sacral motor in the third line of the 14 hexagram, bringing immature energy to the "not-self" world in the gate of "Power skills (Possession in great measure): The accumulation and retention of power through skilled interaction, coupling grace with control," in the third line of "Service: The utilization of talent and wealth for the highest good. exalted: Selfless contribution to society. The key to power lies in selfless contribution to others. detrimented: Greed and the self-destruction of moral fiber. The power of selfishness to fuel greed." Fueled by the color of fear, not knowing when enough is enough. Mars brings outbursts, and I expect protests will become more likely to disintegrate into disorganization, be more chaotic, and potentially aggressive, as wealth inequality, racism, misogyny, and the elite power grab becomes even more transparent during the upcoming year. The sacral is the life force of the world, but you can be ok by being in the flow by acting as yourself.
I’ll add a little astrology to this. Taboo to HD “purists” I know, but I’m a heretic… Uranus changes signs moving into Taurus on May 15th after spending 7 years in Aries. I remember the day Uranus, the planet of upheaval entered Aries, as being the day of the Fukushima nuclear disaster on March 11th 2011, and then Ra Uru Hu passing the following day. Anyway the planet of unexpected change enters the sign of Taurus, which represents money, possessions, security, and material goods. So from an astrological perspective this could be a time of rapid unexpected economic destabilization, perhaps a crash of seemingly stable financial markets. The house of cards collapses. The Emperor was never wearing cloths. The only thing that keeps the financial systems afloat is that people believe in them, even if it’s just smoke and mirrors. Ironically Uranus retrogrades back into Aries on November 6th, which coincidently is the date of the United States mid-term elections. The beginning of Taurus is also the 3rd hexagram "Ordering (Difficulty at the beginning); The fundamental challenge of initiation is to transcend confusion and establish order." Taurus begins right at the end of the forth line “Charisma”, so the first full line in Taurus is the fifth line of "Victimization."
For those who have gotten readings from me where I use Human Design to talk about the character in their story and Astrological transits to discuss the current and near future scenes in their play, you will recall I always say “no matter whether the current act is a comedy or a tragedy, your lines are always to follow your strategy and authority.” As Ra had said in previous Rave New Year reports “When you live a cycle as yourself it doesn’t matter what’s going on in the cycle.”
Also in the undefined Sacral is Uranus in the 42nd gate of "Growth (Increase); The expansion of the resources which maximizes the development of full potential," and in the fifth line of "Self-actualization: exalted: The fulfillment and actualization of purpose as a natural path, whose reward is a healthy sense of self, rather than the power and influence that naturally follow. Growth that is self-fulfilling and naturally leads to influence. detrimented: Self-actualization as a strictly inner experience that may
demand or result in a reclusive nature. Inner growth that empowers reclusiveness.”
So the evolutionary mutative under current for the Rave New Year, is shining on self-actualization.
Both the Splenic center and the Heart center are completely open with no activations, meaning wellbeing and worth will be allusive during the upcoming year as people hold on to what is not good for them and/or try to prove themselves.
The G center is defined with three gates activated by the North Node in the 7.2, the South node in the 13.2, and Saturn detrimented in the 10.6. The nodes are openings for neutrino energy from outside our solar system and representative of our environment. I think of it as the background frequency that over the course of the year slowly changes from the energy of the 13.2 to the energy of the 7.2. It moves from the collective abstract gate of the "the Listener (The Fellowship of Man); Universal ideas and values in an ordered framework which inspires humanistic cooperation" to the collective logic gate of "the Role of the Self (The Army); The point of convergence. By design, the need for leadership to guide and order society."
From the 2nd line of "Bigotry: The risk, always present, that fellowship can only exist for a particular type, whether racial, religious, national, or intellectual. exalted: Tolerance as the least offensive manifestation of bigotry. A role of openness through tolerance. detrimented: The obsessive belief that the highest ideals cannot be embraced by the lowest of forms. An extremely difficult position, where even the highest ideas provide the rationalization of hatred. A role of openness so narrow that there is practically no one worth listening to." Moving on a trajectory toward the 7.2 "The democrat: The ability to lead by serving the will of the majority. exalted: The application of universally accepted systems. When connected through the Alpha channel to Gate 31 Influence, the potential for widespread and revolutionary effect on society. The capacity of the Self to lead when chosen. detrimented: Elitism and denegation by the democrats of democracy. The capacity of the Self once chosen to feel superior to those who chose them." Racism and bigotry are certainly important topics in the “not-self” scenery currently, movement towards to serving the will of the majority would be welcome indeed. And of course the 7 is connected to the 31, where the Earth resides, so the upcoming year will have the potential for widespread and revolutionary effect on society as we move into the future.
This is the quarter of mutations' variation of the cross of the unexpected, which the Sun in the 41 brings new experiences as a theme,… fantasy,… to unexpectedly see an advantage to a new adventure, to be shared with others. Its rooted in the 31 which challenges the king and the tribal leader. This is leaders who are elected by the collective. Which can bring unexpected leaders that come out of nowhere, claim power, and have influence. Suddenly given authority due to unexpected events, due to unexpected experiences.
Saturn is also in the defined G center in the 10th gate "The behavior of the Self (Treading): The underlying code of behavior which ensures successful interaction despite circumstances." Saturn is detrimented in the 10.6 is "The role model: The perfect expression of norms through action rather than words. detrimented: The hypocrite. Do as I say, not as I do. Behavior restricted to words rather than actions."
Saturn brings consequences, and in this case to the hypocrite who plays the role model, but also to those under the influence of the hypocrite.
And finally we have Jupiter in the 43rd gate of "Insight (Breakthrough); In order for achievement to be maintained a new order must be fairly established." In the 43.2 "Dedication: exalted: The maintenance of specialized attitudes which promote breakthrough. Unique mental habits and thought processes which promote insight. detrimented: A dedication to action, that when actualization is in sight may be incautious. The urge for expression that will abandon its normal process when an opportunity arises." Dedication to honoring your own law. To living as yourself. Follow your strategy, honor your authority, and love yourself.
We cannot change the ignorance of the “not-self” world, but we can make a difference in our own lives. No matter what happening in the world, good, bad, indifferent, take care of yourself and the ones you love. You can find your way, by navigating as yourself. This about not being homogenized. This is weather that doesn’t have to negatively impact your life. As Ra said "That’s the beauty to understand how to operate as yourself, is that you’re out of the program."
And of course we are moving towards 2027 and the end of the "Cross of Planning", as the background frequency is going to insist that we have our own authority to guide us, because we will not have an infrastructure to support us. We are all seeing this as basic support structures that have been in place through governments and institutions continue to dwindle. As Ra has said in the past "Never mind this year. It isn't going to track any better over the years building up to 2027, because we have the slow breakdown of the 40-37 community infrastructure. It's not about waiting for a new year's forecast that's going to be full of light and brightness. Because it's not what's happening. You have to see that the counter point of the dissolving of the infrastructure is the empowering of the individual. This is the only counterpoint, what your strategy and authority offers you is the empowerment of you as an individual. To align yourself to the frequency that is truly you... Best wishes on this rave new year, may you live it as yourself."
