This is the "Care and feeding of a New World Age" report for Gregorian date of September 30th 2013 for 1 - Akbal "awk-bol" or Night in the Mayan Tzolkin calendar, also the Libra New Moon, and Venus moving into Sagittarius, not to mention the Sun forming a grand cross with Pluto, Uranus, and Jupiter.
September 30th is 1 - Akbal "awk-bol" or Night which carries the themes of dreams, transitions from light to dark and dark to light, starry skies, subconscious thoughts, the void where nothing exists but there is all potential, the womb of creation, sanctuary, the underworld, stillness, introspection, dawn and dusk. The glyph for night is the owl, a creature of both the day and night. The 1 Night trecena is a great time to explore the dark parts in our lives and to realize that without darkness we cannot see the stars.
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 - Night 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 Libra also in the 18th 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 18th hexagram is mapped to an opening in an energy channel called a gate, and which is the 18th gate of "correction", located on the lower edge of the splenic center in a collective logic energy path called the "Channel of Judgment". 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 - Night trecena; the Earth in the 17, the North node in the 44 and South Node in the 24, Mercury in the 50, Venus in the 43, Mars in the 4, Jupiter in the 53, Saturn in the 44, 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. You can get your HD chart by going to jovianarchive.com, clicking on the button that says "Get your free Rave Chart", and entering your birth information. 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 - Akbal "awk-bol" or Night, we have one defined channel with the Sun in the 18 and with Pluto in the 58, we have the Channel of Judgment which is the design of Insatiability, which will be with us until October 2nd, bringing us the pressure to offer constructive criticism. This conditioning force works best if it is invited and its purpose is not personal but for the good of the collective. This can influence us to become perfectionists with an insatiability to make improvements. Unfortunately most people will not be aware of this influence and how best to apply it to their lives, so we'll see a lot of folks meeting resistance as they try to change their family and friends with little success, which leads to a sense of dissatisfaction, after all true perfection does not exist, only ascending levels of mastery.
With the Sun moving into the 57th hexagram on the 8th, and Venus in the 34, we have the Channel of Power, which is the design of an Archetype, which will be with us until October 12th. This channel brings an attunement to the body to have an acute early warning system to anything in the immediate environment. This increases our intuitive awareness through the power of a sacral response. This may affect folks to feel on guard and alert to any dangers in the moment. This is an animal instinct to engage in battle or jump out of the way with a split second response, from our attunement to sound and vibration. People will be more in tune to what is being said from the tone of voice of the speaker rather than the words spoken. Sometimes this is experienced as coolness by others, but this individual channel of survival represents the archetype of what it is to be human.
Before I get into the daily energy of the Akbal "awk-bol" or Night, I thought I'd discuss the metaphysics of the upcoming month. October is the tenth month and with the digits for 2013, when added together we get 16, then we add 1 + 6 to tell us that this is a sixteen/seven month in numerology. Basic numerology reduces numbers to one through nine, so when we think about that arc the seven represents a time of digging into events and situations to get a deeper perspective with stronger focus on values, motives, and ethics. Which are also themes of the sign Scorpio, which has several influences with Mercury and Saturn in the sign all month, the Sun entering on the 23rd, and the rulers of Scorpio; Mars and Pluto supporting each other at month's end. The sixteen/seven combination is represented by the Tower and the Chariot in the Tarot cards, which is about the all consuming fire of love that burns up everything that is contrary to our authentic nature through finding our stillness even as we are in motion.
All the planets appear to move forward from our vantage point on Earth except Chiron, Uranus, and Neptune which appear to move retrograde or in reverse motion. I've discussed in depth the implications of these 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).
Ok let's look at the daily vibrational energy for this trecena. September 30th 2013 is 1 - Akbal "awk-bol" or Night: unity experienced through contemplating the stars, with the Leo Moon finding support from Uranus, and merging with Mars, with the emotional energy shifting from people having the impulse to engage in activities that make us feel more alive, to later experiencing irritable moods and critical communications. October 1st is 2 - Kan "con" or Seed or Lizard: duality experienced through planting seeds and making new connections, as Mercury trines Neptune which is interesting in the context of the upcoming Mercury retrograde because the point where Mercury is at a 120 degree angle to Neptune is very close to the point where Mercury will turn direct November 10th, so Mercury will also trine Neptune on November 9th and 11th. With both of these planets stopped as they prepare to move forward this will be a very powerful alignment in November. But let's get back to talking about October's trine between Mercury and Neptune, which stimulates creative imagination and brings a deeper sensitivity to the world around us. This energetic leads to daydreaming and would be well spent listening to music or reading or writing poetry or romantic literature. Conversations will also not revolve around the practical, but will be more suited to discussions of other worldly spiritual topics and our fantasies, hopes and dreams. Not great energy for accomplishing work, but wonderful for empathy and selfless compassion with the offer to help others without interest to gain ourselves. This is also very good energy for studying art, religion, music, poetry, spiritual, and occult subjects, as we are able to transcend the limitations of our normal rational thinking. Also on the first the Sun squares Pluto which begins a tense time period when the Sun activates the Cardinal Grand Cross with Pluto, Uranus, and Jupiter. These planets are pulling apart from exactitude but the Libra Sun dances with each one in the first two weeks of October. A square between the Sun and Pluto brings powerful forces that test us from within and without. These tests may lead us to make radical changes in some area of our life that is not working very well. This can be very beneficial for letting go of the old patterns or behaviors that come up for examination at this time. Holding on to what is not working will just make life more difficult. This transit also indicates that persons in authority may demand that we account for our actions or even ourselves. Some people will abuse the power they are wielding under this influence. Also this indicates a breakdown of situations and machinery. No matter what your experience something will make you aware that it needs fixing, and my advice is to fix it whether it's a machine, a relationship, a behavior, or pattern that no longer works, and on the 1st the Moon is challenged by Venus, opposed by Neptune, and in harmony with Mercury. The day moves from having pleasant energy to be with friends and loved ones, to later feeling sensitive emotionally but confused regarding the accuracy of what's being felt, along with lots of chatting with friends, neighbors, coworkers when interacting with Mercury. October 2nd is 3 - Chicchan "chee-chan" or Serpent: taking action through being flexible, we have the Virgo Moon finding support from Pluto and in harmony with Saturn which has us feeling on a deeper more intense level under the influence of Pluto and wanting to be alone in our thoughts and feelings while interacting with Saturn. The 3rd is 4 - Cimi "key-mee" or Transformation: stability through releasing what no longer serves us, with the Sun opposed Uranus which is the next alignment activating the Grand Cardinal Cross. This brings a day that is quite different from the norm. This could be experienced as restlessness in close relationships, through one or the other feeling impatient and unwilling to put up with something, which could lead to arguments. In business partnerships this may require a radical change due to some unexpected new information or situation. This will be a time of surprise or upset related to parts of yourself that have not received adequate expression in the past. This is a time to figure out what you want and figure out if it's practical later on. For those that do not find conscious expression of this energy, they may find they are more accident prone under this influence. Over all the winds of change are blowing us in the direction we are aware of due to Pluto's deeper perspective, as the Moon in Virgo harmonizes with Jupiter and Venus which shifts from good feelings and congenial social interactions, to later having pleasant energy to be with friends and loved ones. October 4th is 5 - man-eek" : empowerment through being of service to others, we have the Libra New Moon challenged by Pluto, opposed by Uranus, and merging with the Sun. Pluto square this New Moon can bring the compulsion to engage in activities that are not good for us in the long run, but it can also help us to look inside and find what we want in any situation, as long as we are honest with ourselves. Be cautious of power struggles as people will easily slip into the role of victim or perpetrator. Uranus opposing the lunation is another alignment to handle with care, because it triggers folks to leap to conclusions that are questionable, especially when our emotions are involved. This can be exciting and attract people who are different from our usual friends. Those new folks may even upset us, but for the purpose of exposing a need in our lives. It can also stir up stormy experiences in our relationships as people may interpret our interactions as wanting to pick a fight. This is a very edgy New Moon with strong energy for rebellion against any restriction that leads to something new. New moons are times of new beginnings and in Libra is about balance, partnership, diplomacy, and ascetics. 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 degrees 56 minutes Libra to consider what area of your life is being activated by this new moon. For me that would be my fifth house of children and creativity, so I would set an intension related to using this energy, such as creating art work or music that is ascetically pleasing. That would fulfill the Libra New Moon's desire for pleasantry and beauty through the fifth house's role of creation. The 5th is 6 - Lamat "la-maught" or Star: being in the flow through being grateful for abundant relationships, it brings the Moon in Libra challenged by Jupiter and stimulated by Mars, which shifts from feeling benevolent and generous to those in our immediate environment, to later desiring to work independently from others. October 6th is 7 - Muluc "moo-luke" or Offering: reflection through appreciating creation, we have Mercury sextile Pluto with Mercury turning retrograde this is the first of these alignments, with the other two harmonies between Mercury and Pluto being November 1st and 20th. 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 6th we have the Scorpio Moon finding support from Neptune, and merging with Mercury and Saturn. The day moves from fantasies and daydreams distracting us from accomplishing routine tasks, to later having positive energy for integrating our thoughts and moods, and finally wanting to be alone in our thoughts and feelings. The 7th is 8 Oc "awk" or Dog: balance through enjoying family and friends, while Venus moves into Sagittarius which brings the spirit of adventure to our love affairs. First attractions may seem very romantic, but the happy wanderer is not sure about sacrificing freedom for the relationship. Anyway this is outgoing energy for social engagements, travel and spirited friendships, while the Moon in Scorpio is supported by Jupiter which brings a pleasant sense of wellbeing. October 8th is 9 - Chuen "shoe-in" or Monkey: patience experienced through creating something new, with Mercury merging with Saturn which is yet another Mercury alignment that is repeated three times due to its retrograde cycle, the other two being October 29th and November 25th. Mercury conjunct Saturn makes folks cautious. 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. While the Moon is challenged by Mars and Neptune and merges with Venus we begin the day with people being irritable and having needless disputes, to later feeling cheerful, warm, gregarious, and wanting to go out and socialize, then finally bringing our dreams into the day's vibration. The 9th is 10 - Eb "eb" or Road: manifestation through serving your community, with the Sagittarius Moon finding support from Uranus and in harmony with the Sun. The day's emotional energy begins with a desire for emotional excitement to engage in activities outside our daily routine, and later feelings of inner and outer equanimity. October 10th is 11 - Ben "ben" or Reed or Corn: resolution through maintaining the home, while Venus squares Neptune which is an alignment between planet octaves. Venus representing personal love and Neptune representing unconditional and universal love. The romantic imagination is active under this transit, which can lead to unrealistic expectations regarding loved ones. Please remember your partner is a mere mortal, by not holding them to an impossible romantic ideal that no one could or should try to attain. Relationships that are damaged by this transit are not usually based on reality. This is positive for daydreaming that leads to artistic expression, as the Moon finds support from Mars, and is in harmony with Neptune, which moves from feeling a little more confident than usual with the ability to assert ourselves in a positive manner, to later having a greater sensitivity to others' emotions with possible psychic impressions for those who are open. The 11th is 12 - Ix "eesh" or Jaguar: understanding through enjoying nature, with the Capricorn First Quarter Moon merging with Pluto, challenged by Uranus and the Sun, in harmony with Saturn and Mercury, and opposed by Jupiter. Which is very busy emotionally, beginning with having more intense moods rising to the surface from deep in our psyches, with folks acting hasty and jumping to conclusions that may not be correct, and realistic expectations through being calm and reflective, to later conversations are stimulated, and finally brings challenges to following a daily routine along with feelings of generosity. October 12th is 13 - Men "men" – Eagle: movement to the next stage through seeing from a higher perspective, as the Sun squares Jupiter which can be very useful for moving ahead with something you desire as long as you avoid excess and remain disciplined. Many will feel the urge to take on more than they can handle or have the resources to accomplish. Being overly optimistic and exuberant, we need to be careful of being extravagant, so this is best approached with restraint. This can also create difficulties with others, because many will express its influence as arrogant self righteousness. Since you're aware of this possibility you might want to approach those folks by looking for common ground and compassion for their point of view, with the Moon in Capricorn making no angles and void of course until moving into Aquarius, which does not favor major decisions or purchases, but is good to use for resting to assimilate this latest round of energy and experiences.
So no matter what energies are affecting you during this 1 Night 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.
