The cray cray eclipse going down on March 20th 2015 is all happening in the base of the four square group of stars that is Pegasus.
Now, this of course is according to the Western astrological system, and a quick perusal of the astrology for this EPIC eclipse and supermoon on the Spring Equinox will reveal an awful lot of pegasus talk, and God knows I like to talk about Pegasus.
So let’s talk about Pegasus, but from a slightly different perspective. Several of them actually.
If we use the Sidereal system of astrology, which takes into account the procession of the equinoxes, namely that we are TRAVELING through space, and are not standing still, we are not actually having the Equinox happen in Pegasus, but in the Swan (specifically at the star ARION).
Again, we are traveling through space, not standing still, nothing stands still ever. Everything is always much like that moment in “Horton Hears a Who” where all the who’s in who-ville are shouting at the top of their lungs. That is like the universe, all the time.
A ginormous symphony of shouting in circles.
Say we understand not that western astrology is correct or that sidereal astrology is correct, but rather that they are both correct (and also not correct at all in places outside of space and time, whatever those may be).
There was a big stir a couple years back when an article about the serpent bearer, appropriately enough, got everyone in a tizzy because they all just found out about Sidereal astrology, so it caused everything to come into question.
Which brings us to an important point, the accuracy of all astrology. If Sidereal is technically reflective of WHERE the planets are currently in relation to the zodiac, why does Western astrology work? Because in terms of accuracy, the planets are sidereal, and so is the sun. I can’t answer that but can say in my experience it lines up with events which I know through experience with my clients but only through feedback. I have a theory that the “accuracy” isn’t actually why astrology works, I think it “works” by providing a system with which to begin a dialogue with the archetypes, and connection to heaven through stories. By encouraging our eyeballs to stare at starlight, to drink and eat the light of the stars with wonder and self connection of our egos to things greater than ourselves transpersonally, it creates well being. I think that making your mind think about outer space is why astrology works, by expanding our consciousness.
So sidereally, the Equinox will occur not at 29 degrees Pisces, but rather at between 5 and 6 degrees pisces.
This is conjunct the tail feathers in the constellation of the Swan. We fly from one winged beast to another as we leap through time and space across heaven.
This is because of where we are in time and space, location wise in this “moment of now” whatever that may be.
If we go by pegasus, that was about 2,000 years ago
If we go by the tail feathers of the swan we are in the here and now.
If we time travel into the future 4,000 years, for the march equinox of 6015, for example, the Equinox will occur at 9 degrees Capricorn.
What the heck means anything at all then? Why bother all this stupid tracking and corresponding if everything keeps changing? Is nothing reliable or dependable? (remember always shaking and shouting not solid)
Before we can get into that, I have a useful Koan for you-
What is the difference between midnight and noon?
Now answer the question again,
what is the difference between midnight and noon when we set our clocks backwards for daylight savings?
Is your answer still the same ?
or did it change due to your perspective?
Now back to the equinox;
since the procession of the equinoxes goes “backwards” through the zodiac, heading from pisces to end in Aries we are shifting through time and space in that “direction” from our perspective though. Would you know where you are if you just started walking in one direction and never stopped?
What if you walked in more than one direction and never stopped, where would you be now?
So wait, what is the equinox?
The equinox is the point in outer space (from the earth’s perspective) where the sun crosses the celestial ecliptic (earth is on a tilt so it has two planes, so its literally the point where those two planes meet in our journey around the sun, it happens twice a year at opposite ends of the sky.
From one point in time, we WOULD be in the pegasus, from another we WOULD be in the swan tail, from another we WOULD be in capricorn.
so all of the above are true, at some point somewhere.
But isn’t all that matters NOW????
In so much material, and what Eckhart Tolle made famous is we must be in this moment right now.
so most folks
in our brains think that means just right now, this second as we are experiencing it linearly at some POINT in our lives isolated to a singular spot in our fleshy existence, we don’t even see now as all moments we shall exist from zygote to ashes (much less how many times we will go from zygote to ashes.)
so we see the now as a fragment, instead a complete whole.
My Spiritual teacher, Dr. Kelvin DeWolfe always says now isn’t even now. In fact, because of perception delay, the now we experience through our sensory perceptions is already the past, much like the starlight we see is already dead.
We are in effect chasing our tails, this now that we “know”
it would be like if we were in a hotel room in a giant skyscraper hotel, and we thought that out little brains, inside that hotel room were somehow experiencing everything in the entire hotel (but we don;t even know there is more to the hotel)
So weird right?
But what if you could, from your hotel room, also be in the whole hotel?
Well there is a little idea, as defined through the Algonquin and Micmac philosophies in this work that Dr. Dewolfe recommended:
No Word For Time, by Evan Pritchard,
what if now is actually NOT right now but ALL-WAYS (all directions) FOREVER
CAN YOUR MIND HOLD ETERNITY THAT IN THE MOMENT YOU THINK IS NOW???
Can you be in your hotel room AND THE HOTEL (and in Polaris) all at the same time which is now?
Are you sitting reading this?
can you be reading it right now on your couch and also dead in your grave and also in your mothers womb and also the planet earth and also in the stars of Pegasus and the Swan??
Where and when is now for you?
Because I promise you, your when and where that is now, IS NOT BIG ENOUGH.
Don’t take it personally, just get over it.
When you look at the etymology of the word “now” it is revealed that it means “New” or UNKNOWN, something you have never had any experience of before:
new (adj.) Old English neowe, niowe, earlier niwe “new, fresh, recent, novel, unheard-of, different from the old; untried, inexperienced,” from Proto-Germanic *newjaz (cognates: Old Saxon niuwi, Old Frisian nie, Middle Dutch nieuwe, Dutch nieuw, Old High German niuwl, German neu, Danish and Swedish ny, Gothic niujis “new”), from PIE *newo- “new” (cognates: Sanskrit navah, Persian nau, Hittite newash, Greek neos, Lithuanian naujas, Old Church Slavonic novu, Russian novyi, Latin novus, Old Irish nue, Welsh newydd “new”).
That means NOTHING that has ever happened to you really “matters” and everything grows into things that are not like before.
Except that we keep dancing around in circles in the zodiac, right? over and over in circles, hmmm, doesn’t seem very new at all, seems like the same old story.
SO this Equinox, at the time of the eclipse, on the butt of the swan or the shoulder of pegasus, or wherever in the processional parade of the stars you choose to be (BUT WHY NOT ALL OF THEM AND BEYOND) on THIS DAY of the equinox, try to really, and truly, equally be everywhere, showing no particular presence or attachment or special designation to any single one of them, and maybe we can stop walking around in this parade that is the zootrope of samsara and get on to the next Celestial quantum leap through eternity.
Ironically and BEAUTIFULLY, the Star in Pegasus which IT WAS conjunct is called ” He who returns to where he came from”
and the Star in the Swan is know as the “SWAN’S SONG”, namely the beautiful crow the swan makes thanking God for its life as it dies.
BOTH of these stars seem to indicate the beginnings and endings of things are absolutely the same.
As we cross in time and space into ARIES, the BEGINNING, and the beginning of Spring and come out of PISCES the end and the death of all,
let us go alpha and omega,
LETS GO RAINBOW, as the scientists have just discovered, there is no beginning or end, only rainbows and intersecting arcs.
let us release the idea of Beginning and Endings for all time
BECAUSE IT IS IN THIS PLACE THE SERPENT EATS ITS TAIL AND THE ORUBORUS BECOMES ONE
“The one thing people might be surprised about—Roger said that he didn’t know if he could believe in God. He had his doubts. But toward the end, something really interesting happened. That week before Roger passed away, I would see him and he would talk about having visited this other place. I thought he was hallucinating. I thought they were giving him too much medication. But the day before he passed away, he wrote me a note: “This is all an elaborate hoax.” I asked him, “What’s a hoax?” And he was talking about this world, this place. He said it was all an illusion. I thought he was just confused. But he was not confused. He wasn’t visiting heaven, not the way we think of heaven. He described it as a vastness that you can’t even imagine. It was a place where the past, present, and future were happening all at once.”
