At the New Moon Phase, when we cannot see the Moon's light, we instinctively jump-star t some new idea or
vission. Three and a half days pass between phases, & at the second phase, the Crescent, information arrives
defiing that new idea or vision. At the third phase, called the First Quarter Phase, we're urged to take specific
ction towards manifesting the vision, & at the fourth, the Gibbous a major decision about this vision confronts us.
The Full Moon Phase, two weeks after the New Moon, brings revelations concerning the cycle's vision, & at the
Disseminating Phase, we share what we've discovered with others. The Last Quarter enables manifestation
of the vision into 3-D reality. The final phase, the Balsamic, is for letting go, for clearing out old issues & prepar-
ing 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 frequ-
ency octave higher. (Figure 2) Our intellect can then evolve beyond space, time and dissolution.
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 the higher mind, enabling us to "see
whole". This is a Jupiter function. Example: Perhaps we have at birth, Venus at 13 degrees Gemini, Jupiter at
15 degrees , Leo, & Uranus at 14 degrees Scorpio. When we connect the significance of the 14, 15 and 14 de-
gree connections with the interaction between Venus, Jupiter & Uranus & 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" & understand the "Language of Light"
which is first perceived as "phosgenes"__colored lights or symbols behind our closed eyes, & in visions, dreams
or meditations. Later. as we continue to work with those inner symbols, our brains automatically translate them in-
to 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 & feel. All higher consciousness
states occur on a collective spirit-soul level. In subconscious memory all is recorded but we may not always ac-
cess it from a conscious beta-state. However with Higher Self-Superconscious memories open to an everyday
beta mind, too. At the end of even sixty or seventy years in an Observer State, we can recall every single thought,
feeling or experience we ever had in this lifetime and possibly, in other lifetimes as well. Our life lessons then oc-
cur 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 & feeling patterns, seize the patterns that are ours only,
and use them to move through life in a more thoughtful fashion. We perceive the behaviors that repeat themselves
over the weeks & months keeping us from being all we could be. As long as we still have strong feelings about so-
ething or somebody__ whether of fear, anger or intense desire__ we are still emotionally attached, still holding a
"charge", & the issue continues to affect us. When we develop the 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 & the inherent innocence of children,
cherishing their teachings & contributions. The United States, in particular, has long been without true spiriual gui-
dance among its leaders. This fosters cultural difficulties. We need socially & culturally experienced elders to
show us how to interact with society. Their ethical wisdom & pragmatic gifts to family, school, country & commun
ty 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
are managing life pretty well & becoming a more balanced person, those around us are used to relating to us in
old familiar ways. When we suddenly act & 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, & 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 alie-
nation & emptiness. How many people below retirement age find it nearly impossible to just sit in silence, listen to
inner guidance, & do absolutely nothing? Instead, they define themselves by their work, achievements, personal
appearance, possessions, activities or the entertainment used to keep their minds distracted from the fear of ha-
ving 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 gr-
owth, joy, wisdom & a deeper attunement to Creative Source. 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 spiri-
tual dimensions of Eldering.
Some people would rather remain hurt & dependent, than risk becoming healthy & alone. Having learned to use
our pains as power, we behold wounding as a primary reason for either defining or empowering ourselves. Be-
havior patterns rooted in our wounds become our tools of life, we study "spiritual intimacy " & we observe the
contemplative moments of Eldering. We release our painful histories and move from "age-ing" to "sage-ing".
