This is the "Care and feeding of a New World Age" report for Gregorian date of October 26th 2013 for 1 - Muluc "moo-luke" or Offering in the Mayan Tzolkin calendar, also the Scorpio New Moon Solar Eclipse, Venus moving into Capricorn, Jupiter turning retrograde, and the fourth Uranus Pluto square.
October 26th 2013 is 1 - Muluc "moo-luke" or Offering which carries the themes of water, rain collected in water pots, vessels of gratitude for life, clouds heavy with rain, the sacred jade stones used in rituals and burials, offerings made in ceremony, baptisms and purification, deep undercurrents of emotions, restoring equilibrium, appreciation for creation, releasing negative patterns, energy, and emotions and accepting change. The day glyph for Offering depicts a fish who represents the Mayan water deity. I love the connection between the fish of Offering and all the Water energy of the Sun, Mercury, and Saturn in Scorpio, Jupiter in Cancer, and Neptune and Chiron in Pisces of this report period, not to mention we are currently in the Chinese year of the Water Snake. The energy of this thirteen day period is about gratitude for life and cleansing the past for transformation in the present.
I got a lot of great feedback from the 1 Cib "Care and feeding", and have reworked the Neutrino Forecast into its own video series also available on Youtube and Facebook under New World Birth. So from now on Care and Feeding will focus on the Mayan Tzolkin and Astrology and each month the Human Design Neutrino Forecast will be a separate offering.
November is the eleventh month and with the digits for 2013, when added together we get 8, then we have an eight month in numerology. Basic numerology reduces numbers to one through nine, so when we think about that arc the 8 represents a time of picking up the pace as we our preparing to complete the cycle next month. This can also bring revisions to financial situations, businesses, investments, and industry. The eight is represented by the Justice/Adjustment archetype in the Tarot cards, which is about finding balance in our path to know ourselves. This also brings the energy that what is begun must be completed.
Before I get into the daily energy for 1 - Muluc "moo-luke" or Offering, on October 26th 2013 all the planets appear to move forward from our vantage point on Earth except Mercury, Chiron, Uranus, and Neptune which appear to move retrograde or in reverse motion. Mercury is retrograde until November 10th so the end of October and the beginning of November would be a good time to avoid signing contracts or other legal papers, making any major purchases, or even taking a new job. If you can postpone these types of activities the terms will be much clearer after Mercury is moving direct. Mercury retrogrades force us to slow down and pay more attention to our lives by making us focus on the details of our daily experience. When looking at a retrograde cycle of any of the personal or inner planets, it provides information about a correction to our present course. Mercury traveled through the first stage of the retrograde process which started on 10/1, when it passed the point where it will appear to move forward again on 11/10. That first stage represented the shadow time between passing 2 degrees Scorpio, the point where the planet will eventually begin moving forward again and the point where the planet slows, stops, and begins moving in reverse, 18 degrees Scorpio. During the first stage we received information about needing to adjust our direction. The second stage is the actual time of Mercury retrograde and is a time to watch the events that occur related to the information received in the 1st stage. The 3rd stage begins when the planet is moving forward again until crossing the line where it originally turned retrograde. During the 3rd stage we move forward with a revision to our previous course. We entered the 1st stage for Mercury on October 1st, so until October 21st, we received information about an adjustment that needs to be made in our lives. Mercury is retrograde from 10/21 at 18 Scorpio until 11/10 at 2 Scorpio which now is the time we will notice events that shift our thinking, and from November 10th to November 27th, we will be in the 3rd stage where we implement the change in direction from the awareness gained through experiencing this process. This Mercury retrograde is intertwined with the Uranus Pluto square, because the day retrograde Mercury conjuncts the Sun is November 1st, the day of the fourth Uranus Pluto square, when the down trodden authentic individual rebel squares off against the decaying power structures. The material world continues to destabilize, so it is very important to support local providers and have a strong spiritual foundation. This is a time we feel like our backs are against the wall. We have no choice but to change or endure something that was once unthinkable. Uranus gives us something unexpected. This goes beyond dealing with the consequences of bad choices or poor planning, but random events where folks are just at the wrong place at the wrong time.
I've discussed in depth the implications of the other planets moving retrograde in the past reports, so I'll just keynote each one. 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. Retrograde Uranus in Aries is seeking to shake our very foundation to shock us to awaken and forces us to embrace our new way of living through reversals and unexpected events. Retrograde Neptune in Pisces is seeking transcendence through spiritual practices to keep us grounded as we expand our intuition and consciousness, while 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).
The big change for the 1 - Muluc "moo-luke" trecena begins with Jupiter appearing to be stopped at the opening of this thirteen day period prior to appearing to move retrograde or in reverse motion from the perspective of the Earth on November 7th at 20 degrees of Cancer. So when the 1 - Offering trecena begins, Jupiter is stopped and at the peak of its power. Jupiter was the king of the gods, and the planet is about good fortune, opportunities, faith, religion, beliefs and expansion. Cancer is about family, home, nurturing, and protection, so we will see these themes expanded at the end of October and into November. Jupiter entered into its retrograde shadow period on August 13, 2013 which developed opportunities that will be reviewed when Jupiter turns retrograde on November 7th. Mostly what I find with Jupiter retrograde, as with any retrograde cycle there is a review of the past, and with Jupiter what gets reviewed are missed opportunities. When Jupiter turns direct on March 6th 2014 at 10 degrees of Cancer, we will have become aware of a change in course regarding how we will expand our opportunities to protect and nurture our families and homes. Jupiter will take a few days to build momentum in moving reverse. In your personal life you may want to look at 20 degrees Cancer to become aware of the house that is currently feeling Jupiter's expansive influence. For me, Jupiter is in my 2nd house of possessions, earning power and money. So this retrograde time I may find myself reviewing my finances and deciding what activities are worth expanding and what situations are draining my resources with little material benefit. Time will tell.
We talked about the Uranus Pluto square in past reports as being 7 occurrences from 2012 to 2015, whose theme is the individual (Aries) revolutionary, upsetting (Uranus) the decaying and dying (Pluto) power structures (Capricorn). So we are approaching the midpoint where the critical mass shifts from the old paradigm to the new. I mentioned my favorite example of this taking hold was when the reporter asked U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry if there was anyway Syria could avoid military intervention and Kerry responded "He could turn over every single bit of his chemical weapons to the international community, in the next week... turn it over... all of it... without delay and allow a full and total accounting for that... But he isn't about to do it and it can't be done, obviously." If anyone deserves a Nobel Peace Prize it's the person who asked the question that changed the course of history. That is the power of the individual to upset the power structure from following the status quo. And here in the US the old boy network is spouting that the United States is being seen as weak because we didn't attack Syria. To me finding a peaceful solution always requires more strength. Also here in the United States we had our government shut down by "Tea Party" politicians who tried to overturn the democratic process by extortion. They were unhappy with the laws that were being constitutionally enacted, so they held the federal government hostage, until the 11th hour when the United States would have defaulted on its debts. Fortunately sanity prevailed and the "Tea Party" conservatives are now being seen for the whining infants they are, rather than adults working within the system they swore an oath to uphold: People who are willing to destroy the USA if they cannot get their way. With this Uranus Pluto midpoint square, we are seeing the end of the corrupt power wielded by the Tea Party, a fake grassroots movement of Republicans, whose agenda has been to increase their wealth by destroying the environment, the rights of minorities and women, and the health and wellbeing of the citizens. Thank you Pluto in Capricorn for tearing down this corrupt and decaying power structure.
The Uranus Pluto square on November 1st is very powerful. With at least 10 strong planetary alignments at the time of the square. With so many planets at 9 degrees and change, it's like a shooting gallery, or when I first saw the chart it looked like a light saber battle. We have Mars trine Pluto, opposing Chiron, and inconjunct Uranus and the Moon squaring Pluto and opposing Uranus leading up to the square, which is followed by Mercury and the Sun merged together as they sextile Mars and inconjunct Uranus, so we have the "Finger of Fate" pointing at Uranus. Mercury and the Sun are sextile Pluto, as is Chiron. This tells a story. In the war between the Titans, Pluto is direct and well supported by Mars, the Sun, Mercury, and Chiron. The challenger, Uranus is retrograde and has nothing but detrimental connection with other planets. I see this as the scrappy Uranus, being backed into a corner by Pluto and his entourage, but Uranus is as unpredictable as an injured cornered wild animal. The results will be unexpected and most likely violent. Since Neptune is not a player in this chart, I don't believe there will be deception involved, I suspect this will be an overt incident or incidents that present us with an experience like a chemical reaction where some things are forever changed into a new material. I think November 1st will be a time we look back on as THE moment when the quantum shift occurred, when we experienced something that cannot be undone, the ship sailing over the edge of the world, the point of no return.
Ok let's look at the daily vibrational energy for this trecena. October 26th 2013 is 1 - Muluc "moo-luke" or Offering: unity experienced through appreciating creation, with the Last Quarter Moon in Leo being challenged by the Sun in Scorpio which brings challenges to our daily routines. The 27th is 2 - Oc "awk" or Dog: duality experienced through enjoying family and friends, while the Moon in Leo finds support from Uranus, and is challenged by Saturn and Mercury. The day moves from having the impulse to engage in activities that make us feel more alive and having a desire for emotional excitement to engage in activities outside our daily routine, to later feeling lonely or isolated, to finally folks being critical in their communications particularly with the people they have intimate relationships with and our moods influencing our ability to think rationally. October 28th is 3 - Chuen "shoe-in" or Monkey: taking action through creating something new, with Pluto sextile Chiron empowering us by exposing our hidden or forgotten wounds to the light of day so healing is possible. We also have the Leo Moon supported by Venus which has us enjoying pleasant feelings and social interactions. The 29th is 4 - Eb "eb" or Road : stability through serving your community, while retrograde Mercury merges with Saturn for the second time, which makes folks cautious again. On the positive side we are more precise in our thinking, and detail oriented in our communication. If you previously outlined a general plan, this allows you to fill in the details. Critical thinking is very sharp and can see flaws in any argument including our own. This transit can be an obstacle for seeing the big picture. We can see the distinction of the different trees but not the forest. At worst this can create difficulty in communication, because we may be afraid to reveal something, so we say nothing due to negative thinking that often accompanies this transit. This is the time to speak up because what is not expressed can injure someone. Overall this requires discipline, and commitment to our ethics and values. The 29th the Virgo Moon is opposed by Neptune, in harmony with the Sun, merges with Mars, and is supported by Pluto which moves us from feeling sensitive emotionally but confused regarding the accuracy of what's being felt, to later feelings of inner and outer equanimity, then experiencing irritable moods and critical communications, and finally with Pluto bringing out intense emotions and stimulating sensitivity, which also favors sexual relationships. October 30th is 5 - Ben "ben" or Reed or Corn: empowerment through maintaining the home, as the Moon in Virgo is in harmony with Mercury, Saturn, and Jupiter, and challenged by Venus, the day moves from lots of chatting with friends, neighbors, and coworkers, to having realistic expectations through being calm and reflective, then later feeling in the flow and having a sense of wholeness, and finally having pleasant energy to be with friends and loved ones. The 31st is 6 - Ix "eesh" or Jaguar: being in the flow through enjoying nature, while Mars trine Pluto wraps up the month of October, with a supportive connection between the traditional and modern rulers of Scorpio and an alignment between planet octaves. Mars representing our desires and personal will and Pluto is the transcendent will of the Universe and the empowerment of the authentic self. A trine between Mars and Pluto is good for making changes in our lives and to become more effective in changing the world around us. This can stimulate peoples' ambitions without others feeling threatened. With Pluto involved the Martian ego gets sublimated so our efforts should be for the greater good or we will sow the seeds of our own self undoing. Mars is opposite Chiron which brings aggressive wounding and/or healing through action. The Libra Moon makes no angles which does not favor major decisions or purchases, but is good to use for resting to assimilate this latest round of energy and experiences. November 1st is 7 - Men "men" – Eagle: reflection through seeing from a higher perspective, and Uranus and Pluto's fourth exact square of seven, which tips the scale towards the new paradigm, as the past three have been deconstructing the old paradigm. The themes of revolution, transformation, tension between the material and spiritual worlds, upheaval, along with death and rebirth are particularly potent at this time. Acceleration of transformation related to the revolution and evolution is increasing exponentially. This is the peak of the energy for unexpected change as old ways, old structures are crumbling to prepare us for transformation. This is one of the undercurrents that will be most powerful during the continuing challenging square between Uranus in Aries and Pluto in Capricorn at 9 degrees. These challenging angles between Uranus, the planet of disruption, revolution and unexpected change in Aries, the sign of the individual, challenging Pluto the planet of death and destruction but also rebirth, in the sign of Capricorn representing structures including governments and corporations, is the most powerful transit of our time. These two titans have exact confrontations an amazing seven times between 2012 and 2015. Usually this type of transit occurs three or five times. Seven times is unusual and very intense. As I've said before the world will be a very different place by the end of 2015. Also on the 1st we have Mercury sextile Mars which brings a busy day with folks having more energy than usual for their own projects. This is a day where working for someone else's benefit does not inspire diligence but more likely resentment. If you can use the day to work on what's of interest to you, it will seem like a good use of all this energy. Since others are feeling the same way, plan on working independently of others. There is energy for convincing others of your point of view, but they also have the energy to convince you of their perspective. This might be a day to avoid people and conversations that could lead to arguments, because this has a competitive edge to it. We can be confident in our ideas and beliefs to initiate something that should be successful as long as we don't need others to bring it to fruition. And we have Sun sextile Pluto which empowers us make changes in our immediate environment and reform the aspects of our lives that have brought us unhappiness over time. Embrace the opportunities on the 1st that can be used for the improvement of the general good. Scorpio Sun in harmony with Pluto in Capricorn brings a few days to seize opportunities and use this strange creative energy to benefit the greater good and spiritual empowerment. Along with the Sun merging with retrograde Mercury, which prior to turning retrograde Mercury appears to be way out in front of the Sun, then retrogrades back to conjoin the Sun, and then falls behind the Sun. Prior to mechanized warfare Generals would send their cavalry ahead of the infantry to scout out the enemy's location, find possible resources, as well as the lay of the terrain to move the troops with maximum efficiency, safety and to their strategic advantage. I like to think of Mercury when it is stretching out in front of the Sun as gathering intelligence to report back to our consciousness' during its conjunction to the Sun. Using these two markers connected with a rubber band, I am hoping to illustrate this pattern. When Mercury, represented by the black marker, is in front of the Sun, represented by the red marker, it becomes easier to be overwhelmed by the increase in new information that seems to have no place to be deposited. This can increase our anxiety and the sense of losing control. As Mercury retrogrades the tension decreases until it merges with the Sun, which occurs on November 1st, finding the destination for the intelligence it has gathered. Once behind the Sun, Mercury feels as though it is creating drag that retards the possibility of implementing the new data until it regains forward motion in its pursuit of the Sun on November 10th. On the 1st we also have Mercury sextile Pluto with Mercury turning retrograde, this is the second of these alignments. This energetic loves the mysterious and wants to know what cannot be known. Our minds are active in penetrating below the surface in a search for core knowledge and real knowledge in our search for truth. This is great energy for studying psychology, astrology, occult subjects, and healing techniques that are aimed at regeneration. Folks may be certain of their "truths" and engage in trying to convince others who are also certain of their personal truth, so this pairing might be better to focus on our own investigation and save persuading others for another day. Also on the 1st we have the Moon in Libra activating the Uranus Pluto square 5 hours before its exactitude, by being challenged by Pluto and Jupiter, and opposing Uranus, which starts with having the compulsion to act in ways that may not be good for us in the long run with folks emotionally excitable and impulsive and later having benevolent and generous feelings for those in our immediate environment. The 2nd is 8 Cib "keeb" or Wisdom: balance through introspection, meditation and forgiveness; we have the 2nd Mercury trine Chiron which will have folks being conscious of and talking about their wounds so they can continue the healing process, while the Moon harmonizes with Venus and finds support from Neptune, which moves from wanting to be with friends and the people we love to later our innermost subconscious fantasies and daydreams confusing reality, which may not be great for accomplishing much work. November 3rd is 9 - Caban "kah-ban" or Earth: patience experienced through gratitude for Mother Earth, with the Scorpio New Moon solar eclipse with the moon merging with Mercury, the Sun, and Saturn, harmonizing with Pluto and Mars, and finding support from Jupiter. Eclipses are particularly powerful where they can be viewed which will be over the Atlantic Ocean and Africa. There is something primordial about eclipses that even with modern knowledge of the event, they still stir some deep animal uncertainty within. In Scorpio, emotions and passions are intensified along with Mercury transiting this point three times during its retrograde cycle there is a strong possibility of hidden information being revealed particularly on November 22nd, which will be the 50th anniversary of JFK's assassination and also a Friday. 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 11 Scorpio to consider what area of your life is being activated by this new moon. For me it is the fifth house of children and creativity, so I expect this cycle to provide new information about my creative process and perhaps my relationships with children. This new moon has great energy for a fresh start particularly related to spiritual commitment and transformation as we become more aware of our authentic inner selves. The planetary angles to this lunation are for the most part positive with positive energy for integrating our thoughts and moods, experiencing deep emotions on a profound level, the desire to work independently from others, wanting to be alone in our thoughts and feelings, and feelings of inner and outer equanimity. It's interesting that this eclipse occurs on the same degree of Scorpio as the first Mercury Saturn conjunction on October 8th. The Sabian symbol for 11 degrees Scorpio is "A Drowning man being rescued", which is the essence of love with a profound sense of the interrelatedness with his fellow man. The new beginnings associated with the transformation of events through values, motives, and ethics. This New Moon Solar Eclipse empowers us with new opportunities, environments, circumstances and situations, in the days following a shift to a new paradigm. Also the Sun sextile Mars is great for taking positive actions and accomplishing all kinds of work. This is a high energy transit which is favorable for physical activities and overall health. A great day for a group project as it promotes working with others. People will feel in a self assertive mood today, and are not inclined to back down, so it would be wise to seek common ground when dealing with differing opinions. The 4th is 10 - Etznab "etz-nob" or Flint: manifestation through being introspective, with the Sagittarius Moon challenged by Neptune with daydreams and fantasies feeling more important than reality. November 5th is 11 - Cauac "cow-ack" or Storm: resolution through recognizing the gifts in adversity, while Venus moves into Capricorn which brings caution and carefulness to love relationships and social interactions. Capricorn brings a practicality to love. It also seeks security in partnering which includes material comforts, with the Moon in Sagittarius finding support from Uranus, and challenged by Mars, the day moves from a desire for emotional excitement to engage in activities outside our daily routine to later having the potential for people to be irritable and have needless disputes. The 6th is 12 - : understanding through "ah-how"honoring the wisdom and memory of our ancestors, while the Sun conjuncts Saturn bringing more attention to our responsibilities, to do the tasks where we feel an obligation to others. What is accomplished today will have lasting significance, as the Sun merges with Saturn at 14 degrees Scorpio illuminating boundaries and discipline in our lives. This can also bring new responsibilities. It usually brings low energy, so concentrate on what tasks need to accomplished, and let what can wait for another day, wait for another day, as the Capricorn Moon merges with Venus and harmonizes with Neptune and Mercury which moves from feeling cheerful, warm, gregarious, and wanting to go out and socialize, with greater sensitivity to others' emotions with possible psychic impressions for those who are open, to finally experiencing an increase in communications of all kinds. November 7th is 13 - Imix "e-meesh" or Crocodile: movement to the next stage through nurturing new beginnings, as Jupiter turns retrograde in Cancer. Retrogrades bring a time of review. Jupiter is about opportunities, so this may begin a time when people review their missed opportunities particularly related to home and family. For some this might be a time of thinking of a lost love with whom you considered having a family or making a home with, but as fate would have it that dream did not become a reality. Jupiter retrograde also has us reviewing any expansion we have encountered since Jupiter moved into Cancer on June 25th of this year. During this time of Mercury retrograde in Scorpio, another water sign, this also signals a time of deeper awareness. With Venus in harmony with Neptune inspires creative and romantic imagination, and is very nice energy between the planet of romantic love and her higher octave the planet of unconditional love. This might be a time when we experience universal love through our personal relationships. This is also very creative and imaginative energy, that seeks and appreciates beauty. Exposure to art, music, or poetry could help renew our consciousness during the pleasant dreamy fog of this transit, with the Moon in Capricorn challenged by Uranus, merging with Pluto, finding support from Mars, and in harmony with Saturn and the Sun. The day begins with people likely to act hasty and jump to conclusions, and we have more intense moods rising to the surface from deep in our psyches, to later bringing the energy for asserting ourselves in a positive manner and standing our ground if necessary, with wanting to be alone in our thoughts and feelings, and finally feeling balance between our inner and outer worlds.
So no matter what energies are affecting you during this 1 Offering 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.
