As many know, the biggest astrological organizations and websites based in the U.S. are led and made up of predominantly relatively well-off Caucasians with an unexamined “keywords” approach to astrology. The late depth psychologist, James Hillman co-wrote a 1992 book called WE’VE HAD 100 YEARS of PSYCHOTHERAPY --- AND THE WORLD IS GETTING WORSE. Perhaps you’ll agree with me that the world is infinitely worse since that “Monkey” year, 1992.

Meanwhile, we’ve had about a half a century of modern unimaginative hearsay astrology. The world is not only getting worse, but most modern astrologers couldn’t see it coming, or guide us through it. Past astrology predictions have hardly ever been fact-checked for accuracy, as American astrologers, like most ordinary Americans, tend to prefer to look forward, never looking back. Like the rest of America, astrologers, if they look at history at all, tend to embrace historical fictions that flatter well-off American Caucasians of old.

North American astrologers, if religious at all, tend to see astrology as separate from the spiritual, as if on the other side of a line of Buddhist prayer flags. Similarly, although Carl Jung told us that Soul is expressed and accessed through imagery, most modern astrologers ignore or downplay the rich imagery and mythology that is the origin and essence of astrology itself. Here’s a pop quiz: What is the mythological story of the sign and constellation Pisces?

It’s very easy to get conventional astrology at astrology conventions and with first page “Google” searches. If there is enough interest, even a minor interest, I’ll soon be sharing an email letter, ASTROLOGY MINORITY REPORT. In such a report, expect to read an unfortunately iconoclastic look at some modern astrological assumptions, undermined by the real truth of American history, and/or contemporary reality. First up: Hidden Truth: Jupiter, Uranus and “Manifest Destiny”

 

 

Part One: By Way of Introduction

“To everything there is a Season, and a Time and a Purpose under Heaven.”

  --- The Byrds (1965) by way of Pete Seegar (1959) by way of Ecclesiastes 3:1
(not recently) by way of Divine Inspiration of Imagination (timeless)

"What a drag it is, gettin' old." --- Mick Jagger and Keith Richards

Astrology at best reminds us that life is not linear, but cyclic. There is the continuing cycle of day and night, the monthly cycle of The Moon, the continual cycle of the four seasons, etc. Not only is life not simplistically linear, the various cycles roll on with a common sequence. Understanding the sequence of astrology’s quickest cycle, that of The Moon, is instructive to understanding the annual cycle of the seasons, and even the cycle of every planet in our solar system, no matter how far away. The Moon’s cycle is only a “moon-th” of time, hence our word “month.”  By contrast, the cycle of Pluto is well over 200 years, generations long.
           As remarkable as these sequential correspondences are, even more amazingly is how other seasons-based cyclic analysis outside of astrology tells us the same truth. We can call this “accidental astrology". In articles to follow the Lunar cycle, the seasonal cycle, the cultural sequence of a late mystical poet and other cultural cycle analysts will be blended together. Step by step, it should be easy for any one to see --- no astrological experience necessary. Open-minded skeptics are most welcome to read and receive.  
            Astrology, realistically understood, is really so much more than a mere trivial pursuit. Knowing where one was born in place and in time, and knowing where one is at any point in time, properly seen, is to be centered in truth and meaning. Many individuals are already fortunate enough to know and appreciate this gift of astrology. However, far fewer realize that together we can also find where we are in a much bigger, all-encompassing context, as a nation, if we know where and how to look.

Are You Stumped by Trump? How Could Trump Be Our President?

            In at least some traditional cultures, shamanic or otherwise, the people come together in times of crisis. This happened and happens even with the most angry, afraid and unwise people. For instance, since a little over a hundred years ago, the Ku Klux Klan in America burns crosses to summon their people together. This ritual imitates how the clans of Scotland would send the message that it was time to gather together.
           As said, wise shamanic cultures also came together in times of crisis. Us moderns might find it quite bizarre, even insane, but for shamanic cultures, at such times the shaman, before anything else, reminds the assembled people of their common creation story. I’m certainly no shaman and we are not at this moment together in person. You are wherever you are, and here I am. Nonetheless, I will share our U.S. nation’s creation story, as I know it to be, and where we have come from since, and where we are now. It is helpful to me to know this. Perhaps it might be helpful for you to know this story as well.
            I do not know how many people in the world are in this “final dark phase” with us, or whether it is just we “Americans”. What I do know is that all of us anywhere in the United States of America are going through our final dark phase. The very last phase of the Lunar cycle is always dark. A New Moon will be born from darkness immediately after the final dark phase of what had come before. So what is dying now in America? To answer that question we need to know what was really born oh so long ago. Hint: it was not what you likely learned from your “American history” teachers, but rather what our actual American history told us from beginning to present.
           Darkness happens every night. Some nights are longer than others, some shorter. Every winter is darker than the other three seasons of the year. There is no need to be afraid of the dark, or of winter. However, to make it through the night, to make it through the winter, it is good to know how to be (and not to be) to best fare during this time.
            The ever-increasing frenetic pace of our society, sound bites, tweets and such may already have you screaming out as you read this, “Get to the point!” That is not in any way a helpful emotional mindset to move through our time of great crisis. Linear thinking’s goal is to get to “the point,” the goal, the end. The dead end. Death. “Depression and opiates, any one?” (None for me, thanks.) “Tweets don’t fail me now” thinking doesn’t seem to be helping our President, or our souls, or Anima Mundi.
            So, instead I invite you to see not just some one simple point, but many points throughout American history, and points along the way from different cultural analysts. These are not random points, but making up a curving line through time and the Zodiac, coming nearly “full circle” now --- the Zodiacal circle.
