Forecast for Thursday, December 24th
Taurus Gibbous Moon
ॐOracular Mantra—releases of potentiality are everywhere…
On December 16, 1773 the moon was in Aquarius, while a Sagittarian sun squared the Nodes, inexactly by only one degree… the moon would be first quartered in days, and then move on to connect to Uranus in conjunction at 24° Taurus on December 25th.
This was the last time the moon connected to Uranus by conjunction in Taurus on Christmas day… until tomorrow (I realize that today is technically the eve of Christmas)—but still.
And though the sun hasn’t recently squared the Nodes, it has, rather, connected by conjunction and opposition, representing something of a rebirth and crisis point; it was only December 11th that the sun connected to the South Node by conjunction, and thereby opposing the North Node, marking just as extreme a Nodal/angular aspecting relationship…
Why is all of this significant?
Because it was on December 16th of 1773—the last time the moon connected to Uranus in Taurus by conjunction—only nine days before the 25th—that the American rebels disguised themselves as Indians and threw 342 chests of British Tea into the Boston Harbor, paving the way for the American Revolution…
❝It’s hard. Wanting the tea, but also not wanting the tea, but feeling like you should want the tea, but knowing you should protest the tea, so you put the protest on the teapot and throw all the tea in the harbor, and the teapot I guess… stays empty?❞
The moon will connect with Uranus by conjunction through the seventh degree of Taurus today, a degree which associates itself to “the meeting of the traditional past and of the creative spirit pointing to the future… the highest meets the lowest when this lowest is free from traditional bonds and open to love—the creative future descends first to that which has become chaos…”
I just found this endlessly fascinating…
As Rudhyar explains, “an old order is never open to a new Revelation until it has accepted disorder in the name of that Power which subsumes all forms of order, i.e. Love… a “meeting” that introduces into the collective situation a totally new factor which transcends it—a new quality of being is revealed which renders the old patterns obsolete.”
Through all of those systems, realities, ‘intolerable acts’ wink wink, and memories of No Longer—a new Now can emerge and exist, much more obviously, thus paving the way for Not Yet.
❝With the new day comes new strength and new thoughts.❞
Today’s Taurus moon, naturally, squares toward both Jupiter and Saturn, now in Aquarius, for the first time since February 4/5th of 1903; I could find little evidence of noteworthy historical fact that occurred upon these days, however, it was in April of that year that Dr Harry Plotz discovered a vaccine against typhoid…
I can’t help myself, honestly.
Still, this lunarly square, today, suggests, truly and originally, according to Rudhyar, “the pure, uncontaminated and spontaneous manifestation of one’s own nature… here we see life substance in its original dynamic form and as it emerged from its spiritual source—this is true whatever the nature of the source may be—and by all the forces which in the past have formed[,] that is to say, by past history—yet out of this past a new, pure (i.e. unadulterated) release of potentiality has emerged, it is ready to perform whatever work its dharma is to accomplish […] it is flowing irresistibly toward its own destiny.”
We truly have not been here before… and “revelation is implied… at least as a potentiality.”
Interestingly, the Chandra symbol for this recent Jupiter/Saturn conjunction that today’s Taurean moon will illuminate in all practicality of potential—the symbol regarding this conjunction “carries the message that completely opposite ideas can peacefully co-exist, and actually have the potential to enhance and clarify each other.”
May this holiday’s act of rebellion be merry and bright, and pure as the fresh driven snow—bright and pure with potential of a new tomorrow, and a nearing new year.
