At the New Moon Phase, when we cannot see the Moon's light, we instinctively jump-start some new idea or vi-
sion. Three and a half days pass between phases, and at the second phase, the Crescent, information arrives
defining that new idea or vision . At the third phase, called the First Quarter Phase, we're urged to take specific
action towards manifesting the vision, and at the fourth, the Gibbous, a major decision about this vision con-
The Full Moon Phase , two weeks after the New Moon, brings revelations concerning the cycle's vision, and at
the Disseminating Phase, we share what we've discovered with others. The Last Quarter enables manifest-
ation of the vision into 3-D reality. The final phase, the Balsamic, is for letting go, for clearing out old issues and
preparing for the start of the next Moon Cycle.
The eight phases of the Moon__ indeed, for any planetary cycle__ correspond to a human's seven energy
centers (chakras), plus an eighth center above the head which communicates with Spirit-Creative Force
Field, one frequency octave higher. (Figure 2) Our intellect can then evolve beyond space, time and
For astrologers, any Natal Planets or chart Angles (Ascendant, Descendant, Midheaven, Nadir) at 27, 28 or 29
degrees of a zodiac sign will always be strongly affected by the New Moon and the entire Moon Cycle.
Synthesizing the significant degrees of the chart wheel develops our higher minds, enabling us to
This is a Jupiter function. Example: Perhaps we have at birth, Venus at 13 degrees Gemini, Jupiter at 15 deg-
rees , Leo, and Uranus at 14 degrees Scorpio. When we connect the significance of the 14, 15 and 14 degree
connections with the interaction between Venus, Jupiter and Uranus, plus the interactions between Gemini, Leo
and Scorpio, we gain tremendous understanding of a significant factor imprinted in us at birth, and our intuition
greatly accelerates our growth in consciousness. We begin to "see" and understand the "Language of Light",
which is first perceived as "phosgenes"__ colored lights or symbols behind our closed eyes, and in visions,
dreams or meditations. Later, as we continue to work with those inner symbols, our brains can automatically tran-
slate them into thoughtforms accessible to us as we speak, write, make music or art.
When, through enlightenment, we reach the Observer Stage of Consciousness Evolution, we view ourselves
from a higher vibrational vantage point, watching our personality selves act, think and feel. All higher conscious-
ness states occur on a collective spirit-soul level. In subconscious memory, all is recorded, but we may not always
access it from a conscious beta-state. However, with Higher Self- Superconsciousness, memories open to the
everyday beta mind, too. At the end of even sixty or seventy years , in an Observer State, we can recall every si-
ngle thought, feeling or experience we ever had in this lifetime and possibly, i n other lifetimes as well. Our life le-
ssons then occur beyond time and space__ hyper-dimensionally, as we explore advanced creating through
multi-dimensional realms. The dimension from which we now create is Consciousness Itself.
Cyclic astrology helps us get out of other people's mental and feeling patterns, seize the patterns that are ours a-
lone, and use them to move through life in a more thoughtful fashion. We perceive the behaviors that repeat them-
selves over the weeks and months, keeping us from being all we could be. As long as we still have strong feelings
about something or somebody__ whether of fear, anger or intense desire__ we are still emotionally attached, still
holding a "charge", and the issue continues to affect us. When we develop that unattached, Zero-Point emotional
state, we can release from the feelings that control us.
As we adjust our inner selves, we learn to respect both the wisdom of elders and the inherent innocence of child-
ren, cherishing their teachings and contributions. The United States, in particular, has long been without true spiri-
ual guidance among its leaders. This fosters cultural difficulties. We need socially and culturally experienced el-
ders to show us how to interact with society. Their ethical wisdom and pragmatic gifts to family, school, community
and country can open younger individuals to their own inner truths and expanded minds.
When we make a change, things often get worse before they start to get better. Even though we know we're
man-aging life pretty well and becoming a more balanced person, those around us are used to relating to us in old fa-
miliar ways. When we suddenly act and speak differently, they get upset, not knowing how to respond to the "new
us". The old games are no longer played; we don't react to the manipulations or trauma-dramas__ or at least, we
respond in a gentler way. People are thrown off balance, they feel insecure, and a period of adjustment for them
is needed before life settles down.
For many who are evolving their consciousness, a materially rich life has been purchased at a price of inner alien-
ation and emptiness. How many people below retirement age find it nearly impossible to just sit in silence, listen
to inner guidance, and do absolutely nothing? Instead, they define themselves by their work, achievements, per-
sonal appearance, possessions, activities or the entertainment used to keep their minds distracted from the fear
of having to confront their inner selves.
Perhaps the deepest of life's secrets is how to cultivate our inner lives to ensure our elder years are filled with
growth, joy, wisdom and a deeper attunement to Creative Force. As we review our life's journey__ walking
through the inner landscapes, peering into their misty valleys and ascending their dizzying peaks__ we observe
the spiritual dimensions of Eldering.
Some people would rather remain hurt and dependent, than risk becoming healthy and alone. Having learned to
use our pains as power, we behold wounding as a primary reason for either defining or empowering ourselves.
Behavior patterns rooted in our wounds become our tools of life, we study "spiritual intimacy" and we observe the
contemplative moments of Eldering. We release our painful histories and move from "age-ing" to "sage-ing".
