I am irresistibly led to the conclusion that the human organism is evolving in the direction indicated by mystics and prophets and by men of genius, by the action of this wonderful mechanism, located at the base of the spine, depending for its activity mainly on the energy supplied by the reproductive organs. Though not in its general application as the evolutionary organ in man, but in the individual sphere as the means to develop spirituality, super-normal facilities and psychic powers, the mechanism has been known and manipulated from very ancient times.
When manipulated and roused to intense activity by men already advanced on the path of progress and subject to numerous factors, especially favourable heredity, constitution, mode of conduct, occupation and diet, it can lead to most remarkable and extremely useful results, developing the organism by general stages from its native condition to a state of extraordinary mental efficiency, conducting it ultimately to the zenith of cosmic consciousness and genius combined.
This indeed is Chiron’s role – to forge a bridge between the trappings […]
The other day I wrote on Dave Letterman’s chart as it affects his situation at the moment, embroiled in a blackmail scheme and needing to make major apologies to his wife and staff. My anonymous commenter Chiron questioned the birth time of 6 am which has been put forth by the wonderful people at Astrodatabank which is now posted on astro.com and is listed with a Rodden rating of A.
Even people who don’t believe in astrology believe in Mercury retrograde. I usually start hearing it around the office co-op where I spend my days about a week into the retrograde period. “Is Mercury retrograde?” people start asking me. Email can get glitchy, computer and other equipment starts to fail, contracts take forever to negotiate.
Well folks, Mercury turned direct this morning so it’s moving in the right direction again, but it will be in the news for a little while longer. Mercury is still within a degree or so of an opposition to Uranus, and the thoughts and ideas are coming faster than we can moderate them. This can lead to errors and miscommunication, especially since one Mercury is past Uranus it bumps right into Saturn on October 7.
Mercury is in Virgo right now, one of the signs it rules, so it is happy coming up with great ideas and perfecting them. But Mercury is less happy with the kind of intense flood of data that pours forth from the opposition to Uranus.
This is a great time for writing and planning a lecture or conference, but the implementation will be easier after the 7th.
