June 29, 2013: Aries Last Quarter Moon: DO YOU LISTEN?
Fleeing The South China Sea
The past week of the Capricorn Full Moon has been quite eventful indeed: the unexpected loss of the talented and much loved actor James Joseph Gandolfini, Jr., more massive wildfires continue to burn in Colorado, as the Power of Mother Nature is again on display full force, and…Mr. Snowden, has now been officially charged by the United States Department of Justice with Espionage, it seems that Whistle blower won’t apply in this case.
1.the act or practice of spying.
2.the use of spies by a government to discover the military and political secrets of other nations.
3.the use of spies by a corporation or the like to acquire the plans, technical knowledge, etc., of a competitor: industrial espionage.(dictionary.com)
Listening has been on the minds of many in the last few weeks, as supposedly the NSA is listening to all of our phone calls and seriously, it sounds like ALL OF THEM. Perhaps it would be futile to ask why the NSA has not been charged with Espionage for violating the 4th Amendment of the United States Constitution, against it’s own citizens.
The US has issued an order of extradition to Hong Kong China for Mr. Snowden, presenting us with a very interesting situation. Until 1997 Hong Kong was under British Rule, and in that year returned to Chinese Rule, however Hong Kong operates in a somewhat unique and independent capacity from mainland China, although there may be limits to foreign relations.
Although strained relations and accusations of the US Cyber Spying on China, might have given Hong Kong authorities pause before handing Mr. Snowden over to the US, he chose to flee Hong Kong.
This action caused much contention among the US authorities as Hong Kong did not arrest Mr. Snowden immediately upon their official request. Supposedly the delay occurred because authorities in Hong Kong had requested clarification from the US about the extradition document. They also requested clarification of accusations of Cyber Spying by the NSA.
“It has also formally written to the U.S. government asking for “clarification” on reports that computer systems in Hong Kong had been hacked by U.S. agencies.” Washington Post
The latest information claims Mr. Snowden may be headed to Ecuador, traveling through Russia, then possibly Cuba. Strange days indeed, what must it feel like to have one of the most powerful countries in the world chasing you? “The new path may lead to cold regions requiring insulation from harsh circumstances.” He has chosen a very hard path. Again we must ask, did he follow his conscience or is he simply a spy? And does a spy bring to light massive, illegal government surveillance programs? For what personal gain?
So… where does this leave us? The Last Quarter Moon on June 29, 2013 lands again in the Cardinal Signs. The Last Quarter configuration with the Moon in Aries and the Sun in Cancer will activate the Uranus/Pluto Square. The Moon occupies the 9th degree of Aries, in very close proximity to our unpredictable friend Uranus. Similar to rubbing salt in a wound, it is doubtful this will be a peaceful or quiet Last Quarter Moon.
KEYNOTE: The development of an inner realization of organic wholeness.
The crystal sphere symbolizes wholeness. Within the sphere images take form. The images may reveal future events, but more significantly they picture “the situation as a whole”…(Rudhyar)
Although one interpretation of this Sabian Symbol is the realm of the psychic, and future predictions, another interpretation would be listening (gazing inward) to the inner voice. In truth all of us can access the “Crystal Sphere” of higher consciousness and know (predict) the implications and consequences of our actions, if we are conscious of our intentions. I am not sure the NSA has the capability of self-reflection and any large bureaucracy or corporation tends to operate mechanically and without conscience. This is why we have Freedom of the Press, and a Democratic Political system that was (at least initially) set-up with a system of checks and balances, so that no one entity could dominate, control or hold itself above or outside the law for any reason.
Mercury represents the energy connected with all things related to communication. The Winged Messenger is filtering the Rays of Cancer (Cardinal-Water), and has been slowing down, and on June 26 will appear to stop and reverse motion in it’s orbital path until July 20th. When Mercury is Retrograde he manifests the energy of Native American Mythological Coyote, the TRICKSTER. Messages not received, decisions changed, emails sent to the wrong recipient, and major political snafus.
Also on the day of June 26th the Sun will traverse the 5-6th degree of Cancer and activate a Grand Water Trine, with Saturn in Scorpio and Neptune in Pisces. Jupiter having arrived in Cancer the day before on June 25th, will further bring into focus the change in energies from thinking to feeling; emotional reactions will run very high on this day.
Venus and Ceres together are filtering the Rays of Leo (Fixed-Fire), this will bring much needed Fiery, Nurturing, Feminine energy into play, perhaps to help mitigate and lighten the brevity of the heavy hitters in this Last Quarter Moon. Venus is the Light Bringer, and she helps show us The Way. Look at her in the evening sky, Venus is the brightest object in the heavens second only to our beautiful Moon.
Be prepared for a strange week, there is much activity in the heavens, and Mercury station Retrograde always brings reversals and surprises, which have already started. Many thought Mr. Snowden would remain in Hong Kong and fight extradition to the US. It will be fascinating to see how the situation with Mr. Snowden plays out as well as the continued justification of Secret Surveillance Programs by our ELECTED OFFICIALS. Their self-righteous, posturing in this matter is tiresome.
And please remember it is the power of the people to choose whom we elect to office.
LISTEN, with your HEART.
In Love & Light,
