Dear Planet Waves Reader:
In my most recent letter, I promised to discuss some of the deep space points involved in Saturn’s transit through Sagittarius. These will factor prominently into Vision Quest [learn more here]. I’ve consulted my colleague Alex Miller, one of the most trusted authorities on these points. First, a bit of housekeeping.
You can still get all 12 signs, for less than a third of what you would pay to purchase them individually. Purchasing all 12 allows you to have information about your Sun, Moon and rising signs, as well as those of your children, and significant others. Vision Quest is one purchase per household, so you may share it with them. My friends the Daniels (Grimsland and Sternstein) are coming over for regular recording sessions on the theme music for the project, largely done on drums and synth.
Those who purchase all 12 signs get the full complement of recordings, samples and experiments, which will be offered separately to everyone else.
These include meditation music, drum dialogs, grooves and some really good guitar and bass.
I am very happy with how the writing is coming out. Thanks to Amanda Painter and Len Wallick, who are covering for some of my other writing duties for a few weeks, I’m finally getting to relax and do this work at a slower pace in a low-stress environment. You will see and feel the results of this rather helpful advance.
As for deep space points. There is a lot more going on than I thought. I was planning to write about the Great Attractor and the Galactic Core, but then some other news came in. Here is the theme: our current astrology is not a passing trend. Rather, it will infuse and enmesh itself into consciousness, rather than seem to pass us by.
You may know that Saturn and Neptune are about to make their first of three exact squares Thursday (Nov. 26). When they do, they will be (and are currently) aligned with a black hole in early Sagittarius, a quasar in early Pisces, a maser (microwave emitting point) in early Gemini and another black hole in early Virgo.
As Alex wrote to me Friday, “It’s the quasar in the mix on Neptune which grants permanency and high visibility — something you can’t miss, can’t avoid, and it’s entrenched and here to stay.” Quasars emit a LOT of energy. And there is one right behind Neptune, pumping energy into Pisces.
He continued, “As a conjunction, this is inescapable — there’s no place to turn your face away; it’s part and parcel of the new reality. But the associated black hole in Virgo shows something else coming in from left field, something unexpected, disruptive, precedent-setting, record-breaking.”
Said another way, the world is indeed changing, and changing fast and in unexpected ways. Each of these mini-eras we live through is an energy threshold; a turn in the story; or as the current astrology describes, an entirely new evolution of both consciousness and world events — at the same time.
My job as an astrologer is to help you align your aura, and your intentions, with the prevailing opportunities and elements of the environment. Astrology is about environmental studies and making the discoveries of those studies relevant to you, as you make your decisions, right now.
That is the theme of Vision Quest.
In my next letter, I will introduce you to Eris, and the Uranus-Eris conjunction that peaks through 2016 and 2017.
Catch you soon.
