This is the "Care and feeding of a New World Age" report for Gregorian date of July 27th 2013 for 1 - Etznab "etz-nob" or Flint in the Mayan Tzolkin calendar, also the Leo New Moon, and Mercury moving into Leo.
July 27th 2013 is 1 - Etznab "etz-nob" or Flint which carries the themes ofintrospection and reflection, sparks of insight, the self-sacrificing healer, the archetype of Chiron, the spiritual warrior, the knife that can be used to heal or harm, duality… right or wrong, good or evil, fear or faith, east or west, feasting or fasting, woman or man, us or them, leaders or followers, left or right mindedness. It reminds me of the story of Chiron, the wounded healer, giving up his immortality so that Prometheus could be freed from his eternal bondage of being chained to a rock and having vultures devour his liver by day and then having it regenerated by night, which was his punishment for bringing fire to humans. The spark that comes from flint. Flint makes us aware of the illusion of our separateness so we can transcend duality. To realize our minds tell us we are this and that, and our hearts tell us that we just are. Boundaries are a construct of the mind… I am another you!
I've included the Human Design transits for the trecena, along with the astrology and Tzolkin day signs. I'll quickly review some of that information before discussing the Neutrino Forecast for the current 1 - Flint 13 day period. We start by looking at the position of the Sun, Earth, Moon, Planets, and Nodes as we would in astrology, except instead of relating them to the Zodialogical constellations and each other, we look at them in relation to the hexagrams of the I'Ching, which are then mapped to specific locations in the body graph. For instance at the beginning of this trecena we have the Sun in Leo but also in the 31st hexagram. The shapes inside the body graph are called centers and represent the next stage in our evolution as humans from having seven chakras to having nine centers. The pathways between the centers are called channels and are from the Kabala. The Sun in the 31st hexagram is mapped to an opening in an energy channel called a gate, and which is the 31st gate of Leading, located on the lower left side of the Throat center in a logical collective energy path called the "Channel of the Alpha". I have found HD to be amazingly accurate and my primary tool when I provide readings. The black strips of paper in this diagram represent the gates activated by the Sun, Planets, and Nodes regardless if they form a channel. So we have the following hanging gates or potentials at the beginning of this 1 - Flint trecena; the Earth in the 41, the Sun in the 31, the North node in the 44 and South Node in the 24, Mercury in the 53, Venus in the 59, Mars and Jupiter in the 52, Uranus in the 21, and Neptune in the 55. Obviously not every gate activation forms a channel, but this information can be very helpful if you know your own Human Design chart, because some of these transits will form channels with potentials in your personal body graph. I'm not going to follow the moon with this demonstration, because it moves so fast that it activates three to four gates a day.
On 1 - Etznab or Flint, we have one channel defined. Pluto in the 38 and Saturn in the 28 we have the Channel of Struggle which will be affecting us until August 4th. This brings experiences where people struggle against overwhelming odds. It is through this archetypal "hero's journey" of fighting for our purpose that empowers others to stubbornly fight for what holds meaning for them. This is about empowerment that comes from being who we are meant to be instead of following the conditioning of our families, schools, religions and governments. They are said to be deaf, so they don't hear the other and become distracted from their authentic path.
Later on the 27th Mars in the 39 connects with Neptune in the 55 which brings the Channel of Emoting, until the 5th, which will be a time period when people feel pressure in the form of an emotional wave. The best way to deal with this level of sensitivity is to appreciate the lows as well as the highs. Recognizing that it is all part of our human experience and is temporary for those of us who don't have this channel in our birth charts. This can bring lessons that yield wisdom as long as we can stay present in moving from hope to despair and back to hope in this cycle. We can tap into great creativity by fueling our melancholy or feeling "blue" into some form of artistic expression. This brings deeply romantic and acoustic sensitivity so listening to music or talking with a loved one is favored.
On the 8th Jupiter in the 39 connects with Neptune in the 55 which brings the Channel of Emoting, until September 7th, which will be a time period when people feel pressure in the form of an emotional wave. The best way to deal with this level of sensitivity is to appreciate the lows as well as the highs. Recognizing that it is all part of our human experience and is temporary for those of us who don't have this channel in our birth charts. This can bring lessons that yield wisdom as long as we can stay present in moving from hope to despair and back to hope in this cycle. We can tap into great creativity by fueling our melancholy or feeling "blue" into some form of artistic expression. This brings deeply romantic and acoustic sensitivity so listening to music or talking with a loved one is favored.
Before I get into the daily energy of the FlintJuly 29th "Grand Sextile", or as some refer to it the "Star of David", that is currently becoming very popular as the next "really important shift that spiritual seekers have been waiting for." In other words more hype with very little fact. Hey, it's the one Etznab trecena, if I can't create a few sparks now, then when?"It is easier to fool people than convince them that they've been fooled." Sometimes I wonder why I even continue to point out that "the emperor has no clothes." The forces of misinformation are vast. But I keep going because I agree with George Bernard Shaw's statement "Beware of false knowledge; it is more dangerous than ignorance."
So the latest hype is the July 29th "Grand Sextile". The article that seems to be getting the greatest play has an author who is referencing the "Mayan Tzolkin" but in fact he is not discussing the Tzolkin of the Maya, which is what we talk about here at New World Birth. This author is referencing the Dream Spell "Tzolkin" which is completely a false representation and not from the Maya, but the invention of Jose Arguelles... which has nothing to do with the Mayan Tzolkin. Second look at the Earth Grand Trine it is being defined by Pluto along with Venus and the Moon. Given how fast the moon moves this chart will be out of orb within hours. The third point of the Earth Grand Trine is Venus which is also currently moving very fast covering more than a degree in a day, faster in movement than even the Sun at the time of the "Grand Sextile". The significance of this configuration is as a kite, with the Water Grand trine and Pluto acting as the tail. This is more folks creating drama out of nothing, except their own wishful thinking. This type of hype is the worst form of "spiritual" guidance, but people would rather consume false sugar coated non-sense and look for the quick fix, as if we are all going to ascend because of a date, or alignment. This type of information is toxic and a distraction to keep people from finding their own path as an authentic individual.
Why should I care about this type of disinformation? I am repulsed by people looking for the quick fix to come from the cosmos from some portal, star gate, ascension, or any other cosmic gift that does not require any real work from us, just to have been born at the right moment, to be incarnated when Santa Claus makes his visit. The Koran speaks "Do you expect to enter the gates of Heaven without going through the trials of those who passed before you?" What this type of misinformation does is it causes people to lose hope. Personally I've had enough of this date and that date, that will change humanity. There is only now. I used this Krishnamurti quote last time but it is an important statement, which is "The only hope for humankind is in the transformation of the individual." Don't look out there for your transformation. It resides inside of you to awaken to and shine as a beacon for others to realize they too can find their authentic selves. Or wait until the 29th to realize this is one more hoax that leaves people feeling disappointed and questioning if there is any valid information that they can trust. These types of posts leave people disenchanted and are spiritually damaging. I don't wish to rain on anyone's parade, but I feel I must speak up when it's a parade of lemmings going over a cliff...again.
On the lighter side, August is the eighth month and with the digits for 2013, when added together we get 14, then we add 1 + 4 to tell us that this is a fourteen/five month in numerology. Basic numerology reduces numbers to one through nine, so when we think about that arc the five represents the middle of the journey where we reach the peak of the mountain before heading down the other side. Until the five month, information is obstructed from view as we climb, then at the peak we can see the lay of the land for the rest of the journey. August will bring changes that break through the restrictions of the past to shift us in a new direction. A five month brings new opportunities, options, and choices through our creativity. The fourteen/five combination are represented by the Art/Temperance and the Hierophant in the Tarot cards, which is about integration of opposites to discover the ground that transcends them both, which we bring forth as teachers, who learn from what we share and the experience of those who honor us by implementing our guidance in their lives.
At first glance August does not seem to have the intensity of the previous months with no planets changing directions or any transpersonal planets changing signs. But looking a little deeper we have Jupiter entering into the t-square with Uranus and Pluto which expands our efforts regarding our true purpose and the security of our homes and families against the forces of tyranny. When Venus moves into Libra it creates a grand cross with Jupiter, Uranus, and Pluto late in August. I don't know how many other ways I can say transform, which is the theme of the current years. Jupiter in Cancer opposed by Pluto in Capricorn and squaring Uranus in Aries, pushes us to move beyond our old conditioned responses and break through into the freedom of acting as your authentic true self in August. The dance becomes even more interesting on the 7th when Jupiter exactly opposes Pluto, then on the 21st Jupiter exactly squares Uranus, and the grand finale of August hits from the 23rd to the 29th when Venus newly in Libra forms a very challenging Grand Cross opposing Uranus in Aries while both planets square Jupiter opposing Pluto. The moon adds to the intense configuration as it moves through Cancer on the 3rd and 4th, then Libra on the 10th and particularly on the 11th, then Capricorn on the 17th, and finally in Aries on the 23rd and 24th. Grand Crosses are difficult energy so this will be a time of challenges.
As we begin the Flint trecena, all the planets appear to move forward from our vantage point on Earth except Chiron, Uranus, Neptune and Pluto which appear to move retrograde or in reverse motion. As I've said before planets don't really move in reverse in their orbits, but appear to move backward much like being in a car passing a slower moving car. There is a point where the slower moving car appears to be moving in reverse when compared to landmarks in the far distance. Chiron retrograde in Pisces is about releasing stuck emotional energy, so that we can return to the natural flow of life. Retrograde Chiron has us reviewing our wounds so that they can be released, by having the courage to open our hearts to any fear or pain associated with our past. When Chiron is in Pisces people are willing to sacrifice their individual pain in hopes of finding bliss in Universal consciousness. At its worst this can manifest as folks justifying their victimhood as some form of martyrdom. This should be transcendence and surrender without losing ourselves in the experience. The retrograde aspect brings a longing for lost loves and the memories of our losses, encouraging us to return to look at our core wounds and bring them to the surface so they can be healed. Retrograde Uranus in Aries is seeking to shake our very foundation through the unexpected rebellion of the individual. This can shock us to awaken and forces us to embrace our new way of living through reversals and unexpected events. It is best to embrace the changes when they occur, because they are removing the obstacles to our new direction. This is about unplanned experiences that disrupt our perceived and planned life path in order to move us forward in our spiritual evolution, individually and globally. This quote from Gandhi also describes this energy when he said, “If we could change ourselves, the tendencies in the world would also change. As a man changes his own nature, so does the attitude of the world change towards him. We need not wait to see what others do.” It's interesting that Gandhi led Indians in protesting the national salt tax with the Dandi Salt March in 1930 when Uranus was last in Aries. Gandhi certainly showed the impact one individual can have on the world. Retrograde Neptune in Pisces is seeking transcendence through spiritual experiences. This will be a time to use spiritual practices to keep us grounded as we expand our intuition and consciousness. This will be important energy to nurture as we are in the middle of four years of the unexpected rebellion of the individual (Uranus in Aries) challenging the decaying power structure (Pluto in Capricorn). This will be a difficult time of upheaval, destruction, death, unexpected change, natural disasters, violence and war, so finding our own peace in our connection to spirit will be an important quality to cultivate now for the tumultuous road we are traversing. Neptune pushes us to transcend the physical world to connect with our higher purpose and spiritual transformation, but also encourages escapism as some will seek unconsciousness while others to awaken. With Pluto, the planet of transformation through a death and rebirth cycle, moving retrograde, which is about reviewing the past, and will require releasing anything from the past that is a burden to our new path. We can choose to let go or we can have it ripped from our hands, really all we have is the choice about how we want to react, but Pluto will take our baggage regardless of our attachment, if it doesn't have a purpose in our rebirth. Pluto represents death, completion, and in Capricorn, the breakdown of structures, to bring about transformation.
Ok let's look at the daily vibrational energy for this trecena. July 27th 2013 is 1 - Etznab "etz-nob" or Flint: unity experienced through being introspective, Mars opposes Pluto which activates the T-square to Uranus between the 27th and the 31st, as a time period that reignites the revolutionary upheaval to collapse the structures that have outgrown their usefulness. This may seem out of control and very intense when Mars opposes its higher octave planet Pluto. Mars is personal desire and will. Pluto represents the higher will and desire to transcend limitation to become our authentic and empowered Self. In opposition these forces are in a tense relationship with each other. While the Sun squares Saturn which brings controlling, conservative and limiting energy to challenge the expression of our true selves, with the Aries Moon finding support from the Sun, challenged by Jupiter, Mars, Pluto, and Mercury, and merging with Uranus. The day's emotional energy starts with a sense of inner harmony which is mirrored in the outside world, later shifts to benevolent and generous feelings for those in our immediate environment, then feeling irritable which could lead to needless disputes along with having the compulsion to act in ways that may not be good for us in the long run, then later shifts to people feeling impulsive and acting rashly, with moods changing quickly and unexpectedly, and finally being critical in their communications particularly with the people they have intimate relationships with. The 28th is 2 - Cauac "cow-ack" or Storm: duality experienced through recognizing the gifts in adversity, Venus sextiles Jupiter brings feelings of contentment and benevolence. A very nice sense of being at peace with the world. This is favorable for financial dealings, particularly foreign investments, or agreements related to medicine or legal matters. Also this is a very good day for getting together with friends and enjoying this lighthearted transit, with the Moon in Aries making no angles and void of course all day which does not favor major decisions or purchases, but is good to use for resting to assimilate this latest round of energy and experiences. July 29th is 3 - "ah-how" : taking action through honoring the wisdom and memory of our ancestors, we continue to have Jupiter activating the grand trine in water moving through Cancer connecting favorably with Saturn in Scorpio and Neptune in Pisces. A second grand trine, this time in earth, appears on July 29, which has been a point of interest for many because the planets form a hexagram with the water trine. This will be short lived because it involves the Moon and Venus along with Pluto, so the impact of the Earth Trine will at best last a few hours. The intensity peaks towards the end of July as Mars brings even more instability to the Uranus Pluto square pushing us to follow our own individual authentic paths rather than submitting to the machinery of governments and corporations, with the Last Quarter Taurus Moon harmonizing with Neptune, Jupiter, and Mars, opposed by Saturn, challenged by the Sun, and supported by Venus and Pluto. The day's emotional wave moves from being very sensitive to the moods of others while also feeling lonely and isolated, then later we encounter challenges to our daily routines, while feeling in the flow and having a sense of wholeness, to later in the day enjoying social interactions with others with Pluto bringing out intense emotions and stimulates sensitivity, which also favors sexual relationships, and finally desiring to work independently from others. The 30th is 4 - Imix "e-meesh" or Crocodile: stability through nurturing new beginnings, as Venus trines Pluto which is a day when we might hear from or contemplate contacting a former lover. With Pluto involved this intensifies our emotional expression, as emotions come to the surface that can now be meaningfully expressed to your loved ones. Also on the 30th the Moon in Taurus is stimulated by Mercury which is a day with increased communications. Lots of chatting with friends, neighbors, coworkers... July 31st is 5 - Ik "eek" or Wind: empowerment through communication, with Mars square Uranus which brings aggressive revolutionary energy as the integrity of the old world structures continue to be assaulted, as those in power violently try to suppress the individuals fighting for change and humanity. This would be a time to be cautious to avoid being involved in any accidents, with the Gemini Moon challenged by Neptune which has the emotional energy of daydreams and fantasies feeling more important than reality. August 1st is 6 - Akbal "awk-bol" or Night: being in the flow through contemplating the stars, with the Moon in Gemini harmonizing with the Sun and Uranus, and challenged by Venus. The day moves from feeling balance between our inner and outer worlds, to later having pleasant energy to be with friends and loved ones, along with pleasant yet restless energy that desires emotional excitement. August 2nd is 7 - Kan "con" or Seed or Lizard: reflection through planting seeds and making new connections, with Venus sextile Mars which favors love relationships and the formation of friendships. This brings balance between being self assertive and the desire to relate to others. In romantic or sexual relationships this comes about through a "give and take" process and in friendships we encourage others to be their selves by being authentic ourselves. This also brings action (Mars) to creative projects (Venus). Overall it is a drive to beautify. A great day to be with others at a party, or a night "out on the town" with the energy for lively interactions, particularly with the opposite sex. This is also good for investments in something new and unique. Both Venus in Virgo and Mars in Cancer are in the signs of their fall, which means that folks struggle with the lack of perfection in romance (Venus in Virgo) and Cancer is very soft energy for Mars, so we can expect people to be somewhat frustrated under these influences. Also on the 20th the Gemini Moon making no angles and void of course all day which is positive for resting to assimilate this latest round of energy and experiences, but not good for making major decisions or purchases. The 3rd is 8 Chicchan "chee-chan" or Serpent: balance through being flexible, as the Cancer Moon finds support from Neptune and Saturn, merges with Jupiter and is opposed by Pluto. The day moves from our innermost subconscious fantasies and daydreams confusing reality, which may not be great for accomplishing much work, while we settle into a more sober and realistic view of life, and later this shifts to good feelings and generosity towards others with deep emotions rising to the surface. August 4th is 9 - Cimi "key-mee" or Transformation: patience experienced through releasing what no longer serves us, with the Sun trine Uranus coloring the day's energy to engage in new and different activities that lead to self discovery and a greater understanding of the world. This is more exciting energy than we have most days. People will be more perceptive and able to make changes with a greater understanding of the interrelationships within our lives. Expect folks to be more forthright in expressing themselves without trying to filter what is expressed for the benefit of the listener. This day is good for studying science, something technical, or occult subjects such as astrology, because it brings the ability to find greater understanding of any discipline that reveals new and exciting aspects of the universe. On the other hand this will be a difficult day for just following the daily routine, so get out there and do something you've always wanted. It's a great day to cross something off your "bucket list" and you'll probably gain some new self awareness in the process. The Moon in Cancer is challenged by Uranus, merges with Mars, and harmonizes with Venus. Earlier in the day people are likely to act hasty and jump to conclusions, then shifts to irritable feelings and critical communications, then having pleasant energy to be with friends and loved ones. The 5th is 10 - man-eek" : manifestation through being of service to others, with the Moon merging with Mercury and challenged by Saturn which starts as positive energy for integrating our thoughts and moods and later may bring a few hours of feeling lonely and out of touch with others. August 6th is 11 - Lamat "la-maught" or Star: resolution through being grateful for abundant relationships, as the Leo New Moon finds support from Uranus and merges with the Sun. This continues to push the wave of seeing a new horizon through new information that arrives out of nowhere. This moon craves emotional excitement and in Leo there is the urge to roar. People will have the impulse to engage in activities that make them feel more alive. This brings a surge of new creativity through making different choices, exploring new options, and investigating unrealized desires. This new moon is about exploring the edge, because the familiar is no longer the preferred. New moons are times of new beginnings and in Leo is about power, exuberance, creativity, enthusiasm, and drama, which is ruled by the Sun. New Moons bring the opportunity to set an intension for manifestation on the following full moon. Look to the house of your astrology chart that contains 14 degrees Leo to consider what area of your life is being activated by this new moon. For me that would be my third house of communication, immediate environment, self expression, connections to family, and day to day travel, so I would set an intension related to using this energy, such as recording the video for the 1 - Monkey trecena on that day. That would fulfill the Leo New Moon's desire for dramatic expression through the third house's role of communication. The 7th is 12 - Muluc "moo-luke" or Offering: understanding through appreciating creation, as Jupiter is opposed by Pluto which begins Jupiter's interaction with the Uranus Pluto square to exactitude. This can seem like the completion of a long drive towards success or power, but it brings an important caution, because there is resistance from unseen and powerful forces. This is a time to follow your strategy and authority very closely if you've had a Human Design reading, to move through this time with relative ease, as opposed to folks who will try to think their way through something the mind can't grasp and only detriments. People can become ruthless in their desire to get ahead, under this Jupiter Pluto tug of war. The influence will last a few days before and after the 7th. This is a time where there are difficulties with the law and even arrests, so this will be important to watch local and world events as people will provoke authorities with very unfavorable consequences. This also indicates the possibility of fanatical or obsessive behavior, where folks are certain they are right and unwilling to consider another point of view. Self righteousness will abound. This day can go either way from making a power play or being the victim of one. The best way to navigate this energy is to work for the best interest of others, for the highest good, but recognize that beliefs can change so be open to considering other opinions, with the Moon in Leo making no connections and void of course all day, you may want to avoid major decisions and purchases and instead use the day for resting to assimilate this latest round of energy and experiences. August 8th is 13 - Oc "awk" or Dog: movement to the next stage through enjoying family and friends, as Mercury moves into Leo which brings two weeks of more eloquence and leadership in communication. Expect that people will express themselves with a little more drama. It would be best to avoid being arrogant or boastful under the Leo Mercury influence. While the Virgo Moon opposes Neptune, harmonizes with Saturn and Jupiter, and finds support from Pluto. The day moves from feeling sensitive emotionally but confused regarding the accuracy of what's being felt, while wanting to be alone in our thoughts and feelings, and finally feeling on a deeper more intense level under the influence of Pluto, with wanting to be with old friends and having congenial interactions.
So no matter what energies are affecting you during this 1 Flint trecena, take some time to be in the flow of the planet by being in nature, watching a sunrise or sunset, communing with the stars, being conscious of the moment through introspection, meditation or being with someone you love. Every day is a blessing no matter what dramas beckon to distract us. We are all giving the performance of a life time on this world stage, just take some time to observe the play as well as act your part. Remember you are a spiritual being having a human experience.
