This is the "Care and feeding of a New World Age" report for Gregorian date of November 20th 2014 and 1 - Cauac "cow-ack" or Storm in the Mayan Tzolkin calendar, with the Sun entering Sagittarius, the Sagittarius New Moon, Chiron turning direct, and Mercury entering Sagittarius.
November 20th 2014 is 1 - Cauac "cow-ack" or Storm carries the themes of rain, wind, lightning, giver of life, the cycles of the moon, the feminine, the warmth of home while inclement weather rages outside, purification, nourishment, compassion, emotions, seeing challenges as blessings, healing through the release of ego, clouds pregnant with rain followed by a flash of lightning and the release of the storm that cleanses the earth to prepare for new consciousness. This thirteen day period would be an important time to focus on what is truly important in life and hold loosely those things that are a distraction to your essence. Allow the waters of the storm trecena to wash away the false pride and rigid thinking to create fertile ground for the growth of your integrated and authentic self.
Since we begin a new Gregorian month during this trecena, I thought I'd discuss the metaphysics of the upcoming month. December is the twelfth month and with the digits for 2014, when added together we get 10, then we add 1 + 0 to tell us that this is a one month in numerology. Basic numerology reduces numbers to one through nine, so when we think about that arc the 1 represents a time of new beginnings. The numerology in January and February 2015 repeat November and December 2014 with January being a nine month and February being a one month, so in December when people are wrapping up the old Gregorian year the numerology is about beginnings and in January when folks are wanting to start something new the numerology is about completing what has begun. The 10 and the 1 are represented by the Wheel of Fortune and Magician Archetypes in the Tarot cards. The Wheel of Fortune is about prosperity and abundance that comes from being objective, flexible, and creative. To quote Ruth Ross "All prosperity begins in the mind and is dependent only upon the full use of our creative imaginations." The 1 card is the Magician which represents the principle of communication, represented by the god Mercury. Words were originally magic. Another quote to illustrate this comes from Starhawk, "Language shapes consciousness, and the use of language to shape consciousness is an important branch of magic." So December represents the beginning of a new cycle which comes into being through our communications leading us towards prosperity by being flexible, objective, and creative. This sets powerful new energies in motion that required the numerological nine month of November to release the old and worn out, whether it's aspects of self, life situations, attitudes that no longer work, or concepts, beliefs, or perceptions that have out grown their usefulness, so in December we can move forward unencumbered.
Before I get into the daily energy for 1 - Cauac "cow-ack" or Storm trecena, on the 20th all the planets appear to be moving forward from our vantage point on Earth except Chiron, and Uranus which appear to move retrograde or in reverse motion. Remember the themes of retrograde planets are the review the past, re-evaluate, reminisce and we can see these themes being played out. Chiron is at a standstill preparing to turn direct in Pisces is about releasing stuck emotional energy, so that we can return to the natural flow of life. Uranus in Aries is seeking to shake our very foundation through the unexpected rebellion of the individual. Retrograde Uranus in Aries will have people wanting to hurry the process of getting free. To push the river of revolution whether it be personal or political. Being an outer planet, Uranus creates events that we "respond" to. The inner planets effect us personally as individuals, but the outer planets change the landscape which effects us as a collective and as individuals within humanity.
On the 23rd Chiron turns direct. Chiron retrograde in Pisces is about releasing stuck emotional energy, so that we can return to the natural flow of life. Chiron is the wounded healer in Greek mythology. He was a teacher, healer, and astrologer to the Gods. He was abandoned at birth because his mother objected to her son being half man and half horse, which was his first wound. When he was teaching Hercules to use Hydra's blood as poison, Hercules mistakenly hit Chiron in the leg with a poisoned arrow, but because Chiron was immortal he didn't die. He suffered the pain of his wounds every day of his life. Chiron eventually traded his life to have Prometheus released from his imprisonment for stealing fire and giving it to the human race. 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 with losing ourselves in the experience. The last time Chiron was in Pisces was from 1961 to 1968, which was also the time that Uranus and Pluto were merged in Virgo, planting the seeds for the squares between Pluto and Uranus that we are currently experiencing. At that time there was a growing drug culture, as people were looking for a shortcut to transcendence. 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. Another trap of Chiron in Pisces is codependent relationships where we focus on healing others rather than ourselves. Chiron turning direct in November, so this time of exploring the depths of our psyche will shift from being an internal experience to being mirrored in our external environment and experiences.
Ok let's look at the daily vibrational energy for this trecena. November 20th 2014 is 1 - Cauac "cow-ack" or Storm: unity experienced through recognizing the gifts in adversity in the Mayan Tzolkin calendar, with Venus square 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. Overall we are likely to feel an expansion in compassion and empathy which benefits activities like meditation, music and art which may seem transcendent, but not such a great day for business on the material plane. Also on the 20th the Scorpio Moon finds support from Neptune and harmonizes with Pluto, which shifts the days energy from our innermost subconscious fantasies and daydreams confusing reality, which may not be great for accomplishing much work, to later experiencing deep emotions on a profound level. The 21st is 2 - : duality experienced through "ah-how" honoring the wisdom and memory of our ancestors, while Mercury sextiles 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. Also on the 21st the Moon in Scorpio harmonizes with Mars, merges with Mercury, and is challenged by Jupiter which moves from having the desire to work independently from others, to later having positive energy for integrating our thoughts and moods, and finally brings benevolent and generous feelings for those in our immediate environment. November 22nd is 3 - Imix "e-meesh" or Crocodile: taking action through nurturing new beginnings, while the Sun enters Sagittarius which illuminates travel, education, expanding our horizons, and planning for upcoming festivities. This begins a month with more of a focus on discovering new ideas, philosophy, being at the right place at the right time and overall a quality of optimism. The Moon follows the Sun in to Sagittarius for the New Moon at zero degrees 7 minutes, which is fresh new energy to replace what we have released during the month. Scorpio is the death of the old and from that transformation this new moon wants to expand in a new direction. The Sagittarius New Moon on the 22nd, challenged by Neptune, and merging with the Sun and Venus. Sagittarius illuminates travel, education, adventure, expanding our horizons, and planning for upcoming holiday season. Ruled by Jupiter, this new moon represents faith, confidence and abundance. Sagittarius resists responsibility and confinement, seeking to remain free. This brings more focus on discovering new ideas, philosophy, being at the right place at the right time and overall a quality of optimism. Neptune adds the quality of daydreams and fantasies feeling more important than reality, and Venus brings cheerful, warm, gregarious feelings and wanting to go out and socialize. 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 0 degrees Sagittarius to consider what area of your life is being activated by this new moon. For me that would be my 6th house of service and health, so I would set an intension related to using this energy, such as finding new ways to serve others and improve my health through higher education, travel, and other activities that expand my point of view. Fiery Sagittarius brings in spiritual elements into the new moon, so there is a spiritual purpose aligned with the new opportunities that are opening up. This social New Moon begins the energy that we associate with holiday parties. Also on the 22nd Mercury squares, new moon ruler Jupiter usually brings feelings of optimism and positive perspective regarding life. People are inclined to set long range plans and goals for the future, from a place of seeing the big picture. This is also favorable for business deals and commercial transactions. If you are unaware of this transit you could overlook details that are important to the creation of your overall grand vision. Also be careful about communicating to others in a way that may be seen as arrogant or self righteous in tone. Awareness is key to working with this energy. Don't let this much optimism lead to sloppiness and overlooking important details. The 23rd is 4 - Ik "eek" or Wind: stability through communication, while Chiron turns direct which helps use implement changes to our lives to promote healing the wounds we became aware during Chiron's retrograde cycle which started last June. Also on the 23rd the Moon in Sagittarius finds support from Uranus and Jupiter which begins with a desire for emotional excitement to engage in activities outside our daily routine and wraps up with people having a pleasant sense of wellbeing. November 24th is 5 - Akbal "awk-bol" or Night: empowerment through contemplating the stars, with the Capricorn Moon in harmony with Neptune which brings a greater sensitivity to others' emotions with possible psychic impressions for those who are open. The 25th is 6 - Kan "con" or Seed or Lizard: being in the flow through planting seeds and making new connections, while Mercury merges with Saturn in Scorpio. 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. Also on the 25th the Moon in Capricorn merges with Pluto and is challenged by Uranus where we have more intense moods rising to the surface from deep in our psyches, while folks act hasty and jump to conclusions that may not be correct. November 26th is 7 - Chicchan "chee-chan" or Serpent: reflection through being flexible, with Venus trine Uranus which wants social experiences and romantic encounters to be outside the norm, unusual, and surprising. This is a great day to try something out of the ordinary. The daily routine will just not cut it under this influence. Folks are looking to do something stimulating in their social lives and relationships. A day when there may be unique encounters and love relationships that begin under this influence are exciting, electric, unstable and short, but have a strong potential to change our lives. This could also bring unconventional agreements in our relationship such as agreeing to change from an exclusive coupling to experimenting with having other lovers. Experiencing different types of entertainment is also favored by this transit, by enjoying music, art, or theater that is outside your normal choices. Also on the 26th the Sun squares Neptune, which brings a low energy day which seems to take more energy to complete the normal daily tasks. If possible this would be a day have a lighter schedule and more time for rest. Some will feel a little beaten down by this transit, so this is not a good day for work that requires courage or great self confidence. Don't get discouraged, this energy only lasts a day. The Sun is challenged by Neptune obscuring clarity and focus, and can feel like a low energy day, but also illuminates our creativity. Also on the 26th the Moon merges with Mars, and harmonizes with Saturn, Mercury, and the Sun, which brings shifting emotional energy to the day that begins with experiencing irritable moods and critical communications, then having realistic expectations through being calm and reflective, later being very social and having lots of conversations, and finally having feelings of inner and outer equanimity. The 27th is 8 Cimi "key-mee" or Transformation: balance through releasing what no longer serves us, while Mercury moves into Sagittarius which ushers in an optimistic view of life, a sense of faith, and seeing the big picture. This brings three weeks when people prize freedom of expression and find censorship less bearable. This also brings a restlessness to our thoughts as we might find ourselves dreaming about exploring different cultures and longing to travel. Education is also favored under Mercury in Sagittarius, whether it's through reading, exploring new ideas, or learning about other people. Joining the Sun in the sign of the happy wanderer, they work together on similar goals with a new sense of purpose. Also on the 27th Venus square Chiron makes us aware of our wounds related to others and the harming and healing nature of relationships. Also on the 27th the Aquarius Moon harmonizes with Uranus and Venus which brings pleasant yet restless feelings craving emotional excitement to do something outside the daily routine, and later wanting to be with friends and the people we love. November 28th is 9 - : patience experienced through man-eek"being of service to others, with the Moon opposed by Jupiter, and challenged by Saturn and Mercury, which begins with feelings of generosity, than shifts to people feeling lonely or isolated, and finally having our moods influence our ability to think rationally. The 29th is 10 - Lamat "la-maught" or Star or Rabbit: manifestation through being grateful for abundant relationships, with the fir5st quarter Moon in Pisces merging with Neptune, challenged by the Sun and Venus, and in harmony with Pluto. The days energy shifts from feelings of empathy for those around us, including the possibility of clairvoyance and telepathic experiences for those of us who are sensitive by nature, to having challenges to following a daily routine, then later having deep emotions finding their way to the surface and felt on a profound level, and finally having pleasant energy for being with the others we want to know better. November 30th is 11 - Muluc "moo-luke" or Offering: resolution through appreciating creation, while Mercury squares Neptune which can confuse communication but also favors creative and spiritual activities. Watch out for exaggeration and boasting, and some will cross over into outright lying. Mercury is also communication, and in aspect to Neptune for a day or so we have potential for confusion about the details of mundane daily events but a wonderful potential to connect with spiritual realms through being in nature and engaging in inner work. Overall it's best to carefully formulate exactly what you wish to communicate, because if it could be misunderstood, it probably will. Daydreaming is to be expected under this influence. Not a great day for negotiations or signing contracts as these activities will not be clear under the Neptunian fog. Also on the 30th the Pisces Moon is stimulated by Mars and finds support from Saturn which moves from the desire to work independently from others, to later having a sober realistic view of life. December 1st is 12 - Oc "awk" or Dog: understanding through enjoying family and friends, while Mars sextiles Saturn, which is great for projects that require diligence and planning. Saturn gives focus to Mars' high energy, so this is not flamboyant like some other Martian alignments. This is a great energetic for a sustained effort particularly on tasks that require attention to detail. This is a day of putting effort towards a goal that will be fulfilled in the future. It's practical and does not mind deferring the results to another day. This gives people discipline and self restraint, as long as the gratification of the day's labor is not delayed indefinitely. Also on the 1st the Aries Moon finds support from Mercury, and the Sun, challenged by Pluto and merges with Uranus. The days lunar energy moves from being more in touch with our feelings and able to share them with others, to having a sense of harmony within ourselves and supports any type of group activity and relationships with the opposite sex, then later having the compulsion to act in ways that may not be good for us in the long run, and finally people feeling impulsive and acting rashly, with moods changing quickly and unexpectedly. December 2nd is 13 - Chuen "shoe-in" or Monkey: movement to the next stage through creating something new, with the Moon in Aries finding support from Venus and Jupiter, and challenged by Mars, which moves from enjoying pleasant feelings and social interactions, then later having feelings of inner and outer equanimity, and finally the potential for people to be irritable and have needless disputes.
So no matter what energies are affecting you during this 1 Storm 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.
