Make yourself ready for deeper challenges ahead by stripping away your self-importance; you who have leaned back hard on self-importance for your very identity, and who now must let go despite not wanting to at all. Yet almost irresistibly tempted to constellate these things, to dramatize personally the shadow worlds. The passage is from thinking about it to becoming at home within the path of bringing all worlds together, just as the occasion makes possible, with a light touch and an easy grasp of the reins. The individualist carving out unique karmic arrangements to bear you across a difficult passage. An arduous, consuming endeavor. Mastery or bust. The analytical disposition carried to its furthest extreme. Everything fits together splendidly. Outsmarting, outmaneuvering all possible rivals. The life meets with unpredictable events, unexpected upsets and changes, and a loss of success can come from self-undoing. Super clever. The rapt admirer of the wisdom and beauty of nature, transfixed by what happens around here. We are transfixed by solar power and impelled to unite with our destiny, no matter how extravagant or unlikely that destiny proves to be. HYADES - [5 Degrees of Gemini] An astounding skill at coming back to life, recreating everything, taking into your self worlds ending and worlds beginning. The soul, as divided as it can be between two diametrically opposed realities. Something else shall follow, but it will be in a very different vein. This calls for a ripening and deepening to be fulfilled. CAPRICORN 27 In the thick of this dilemma, a momentum toward the future is being seeded in one of two directions. The outer life of doing the right thing for others in extreme selflessness; the inner life rich with intricate and subtle realms to explore. The mind of death always knows ahead of time each and every danger, problem, and dilemma. Abrupt awakenings to what was suspected but naively denied. The first 15 degrees of male Rashis (Aries, Gemini, Leo, Libra, Sagittarius & Aquarius) come under Leo. AQUARIUS 6 This loss is not always negative in prediction. Claiming the allegiance of those whose wildness is no passing whim, but the only viable way. Mediumistic, vicarious, and charged with a life-force that must be followed out. Feminine power of the deepest kind. Calling attention to yourself, making a show of things, demonstrating a path to follow. FORMALHAUT - [3 degrees of Pisces] Becoming roles, worlds, ways of presenting self. You are called away. The most sensitized and self-conscious and fine-tuned way of being imaginable. One of the habits which easily proliferates here is to take no responsibility for anything. Tension and release. A mission that cannot be refused. Self-sentenced to limbo, half glad of it and half miserable and full of longings. Gravitating toward the impossible, and somewhat blind to the pitfalls of such a way of operating, you ferret out the facts. Universal brotherhood and sisterhood as the impulse of the future, active now. A black rooster. There is a tendency to weakness of the lungs and possible pneumonia. There is permission to be one who brings back the country, the quiet times, the special touches, who quietly, unobtrusively keeps the fiber steady. Two completely separate identities can be lived at once. But you must remember, get sobered and humbled, be tripped up by what you don't see and won't let yourself feel." Your tireless pursuit of perfection and gift of knowing what is asked are charged with collective power. You bear gifts and talents, treasures and marvels. In predictive astrology, what has begun will more than likely last. Emotionally, this is the depth experience at its most intense. CAPRICORN 26 KEYNOTE: CAPRICORN 30 SAGITTARIUS 22 You ooze conviction and resonance with the basic core spirit in each and all--three hundred percent all the way. Only as all the old, familiar places dry up is there a path to walk revealed beneath, pristine and beckoning. A rose bush. New self emerging. 4 and 17 of Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius, and Pisces are similar to the 13 and 26 Degrees of the Cardinal signs. Strange creatures peeking out from behind trees. What I have consistently and persistently found is that a sign is a vast land, full of unknowns, not to be mentally tamed. No personal life, no personal world, no personal self. Going back to the same places to do the same things can be quite a story to tell. You need leverage and control, and are driven toward extreme autonomy, remembering the way it has always been. A man making candles out of beeswax. The breath of the mind resolving its dualities. Anybody can go anywhere and do anything. This star indicates a loss in some area, both natally and in prediction. Daring yourself to operate without the huge advantage of knowing everything ahead of time, and dropping down into the position of moving by primal instincts, each moment naked and following the live track of what arises. Here the project began to get really interesting. Still within those halcyon days of the early 1970s, I was shown Dane Rudhyars' new book on the degrees, An Astrological Mandala, before its publication and even tried to write a book review of it. In the last previous lifetime, you set into motion a very full karmic momentum, which only got to midstream. A broken sword. Intent upon being viable, correct, and self-sufficient.
