    Feb 8, 2018 -- The Astrological Biorhythm: The Progressed Moon by Declination -- by Eric Meyers



    In addition to the cyclical motion around the chart, declination reveals the vertical dimension of height and depth. Cancer is at the northernmost declination, and Capricorn is southern. The Progressed Moon rises and falls in a 28 year cycle, spending 7 years in each "season," beginning with the cardinal signs. We all go through peaks and valleys through the seasonal cycle. The dimension of declination provides indispensable insight to our evolution as seen through progressions.

  • May 19, 2018 - Saturday Workshop - Sedna and dwarf planets

    May 19, 2018 - Saturday Workshop - Sedna and dwarf planets



    On the orbital meaning page I draw the connection with the centaur, Pholus, because they both have a 'space weathering' process that turns the surface of each red, so in my mind they both have to do with growth. And I draw the connection with Ceres, because they both likely have internal oceans, so they both speak of a nurturing process. And with Saturn, because their daily rate of spin is the same, so they have the same day to day practical perspective and both speak of limits. Sedna is of course the esoteric new outer limit of the solar system.

    I'm proposing that Sedna is in fact the higher octave of Ceres, where the spiritual security and sense of place on Planet Earth with Ceres, is transmuted into a transpersonal nurturing of our spirituality and sense of place in the evolutionary cycle with Sedna. I also push back a little on all the victimisation interpretations of the planet that come from the myth and look a little at Sedna and illness.

    On the discovery events page I’m including an early draft of the blockbuster discovery event, the proof that Dark Energy and Dark Matter make up 95% of our reality. That’s right, Sedna teaches us that we’ve only discovered 5% of what is actually around us... But isn't that what spiritual people have been telling us for eons?

    I'm using all of the 19 planets and dwarf planets in my analysis, as well as 3 asteroids, 4 centaurs, and the chart points. I’m currently deep in the aspect section of the book and am interpreting them using lots of examples and the three level approach that Dane Rudyar pioneered, because the energy of Sedna acts very differently for those unconscious of the energy, for those on a spiritual path, and for those with a developed spiritual consciousness.

    Location: Merrick Golf Club Clubhouse, Merrick, NY (The Front Room)

    About the lecture:

    What is Zodiac? Is it a belt of the heavens, divided into twelve equal divisions or signs (Aries, Taurus, Gemini, Cancer, Leo, Virgo, Libra, Scorpio, Sagittarius, Capricorn, Aquarius, Pisces)? Or is it a belt of the actual constellations lining up with the ecliptic, that are not equal in size at all? What about the rumors about the 13th zodiac sign?

Their placement in the chart as well as in combination with other planets can point to strengths and weaknesses in the body as well as proneness to specific disorders.
