Falling Into a Supermassive Black Hole – Spring, 2014

February 18, 2014

galaxy Note Well: A news story from The New York Times (2.18.2014) reports: “A gas cloud named G2 is about to collide with Sagittarius A*, the supermassive black hole at the center of our galaxy…”

Our galaxy, which we know as the Milky Way, is known as Hunab Ku in Mayan Cosmology.

The noteworthy galactic event that the Times reported on is on track to play out in March or April of this year, in the vicinity of Sagittarius A, which astrologers reckon as located at about 27 degrees of Mutable sign Sagittarius. This degree of the sign of the Archer marks the very center of our Milky Way Galaxy – Hunab Ku). The galactic event that astronomers are tracking will unfold this Spring just as the much-heralded Grand Cross of 2014 is manifest in the Cardinal signs of the Zodiac.

Metaphysicians regard these planetary and stellar events as noteworthy in accord with the ancient astrological dictum of correspondence: As above, so below.

To quote again from the Times article: “…(this) black hole lies just 26,000 light-years from Earth. (The actual event, of course, took place 26,000 years ago.)” This means that the gas cloud G2 was drawn into the center of our galaxy (Hunab Ku), some 26,000 years ago, but it has taken the light from that event that long to reach earth.

This 26,000-year span matches the cyclic period of time defined in the Mesoamerican (Mayan) Long Count Calendar.

The Long Count calendar was  famously forecast to complete, and then to roll over into the start of a new cycle (5th World) at or near the date of December 21, 2012, just a year and three months ago.

Metamorphosis 2014: Some Key Celestial Portents

December 26, 2013

According to Chinese astrology, 2014 is a year of the Wood Horse, a year characterized by high energy and dazzling spirit.

By Chinese reckoning the year of the Horse is a cycle that gets underway not with the Capricorn New Moon on January 1, but rather with the Aquarius New Moon on January 31.

celestsideAs a symbol, Horse portends a wild ride of swift personal and planetary metamorphoses. Under Horse’s hard charging influence there is said to be scarce middle ground. Thus, we may well see extremes in all realms of human endeavor – from finance to romance — and also climate conditions that exceed known boundaries.

Decisive action, not procrastination, is the recommended course. In a Horse year, events move swiftly, with some people galloping toward their goals, and others galloping into fences or off a cliff. Seek meditative insight, sages advise, evaluate carefully, then take swift and focused action.

Western astrologers derive a similar characterization for the year from their system of studying the stars and planets. Through that traditional lens, the major portent is the ongoing transit of the planet Uranus in the sign of Aries in square (90 degrees) to the planet Pluto now transiting in the sign of Capricorn.

The celestial pattern symbolizes a process that has been playing out since the Spring of 2012, and it perfects (becomes exact) seven times. The final three perfections of the epic Uranus-Pluto Square lie just ahead in 2014 and 2015. They symbolize a time of even more raucous and fundamental change.

December 15, 2014 at 12 degrees Aries-Capricorn
March 17, 2015 at 15 degrees Aries-Capricorn

The complex, world-changing pattern of these squares symbolizes revolution, upheaval, power (nuclear, financial, and political), resistance and breakthroughs. They portend ongoing metamorphosis for individuals, for relationships, and for systems of business, government, and life support.
