The Astrology of Chaos
Moon in Aries Gives a Preview of the September 27, 2015 Aries Lunar Eclipse
Did you feel that? The Moon entered Aries Monday morning, Aug. 31, around 4:30 am EDT and made an exact conjunction at noon on Monday to the degree of the September 27 Aries lunar eclipse. The Sabian symbol for the eclipse degree of 5 Aries talks about the capacity we all have to take our lives to a new level when we open to the power of spiritual inspiration.
Yesterday felt pretty chaotic. This was more of that Aries-Uranus-type astrology I wrote about in August where the strange physical anxiety kicked up again. I felt super-hyper-sensitive as if I were being bombarded by the anxiety of the millions of people living around me. The animals felt it too – the crows were circling the cul-de-sac and cawing pretty much non-stop from 7 am to 9:30 am. (And, interestingly, around 10 pm, once people started winding down and heading to bed, much of the physical anxiety I had been feeling suddenly dissipated.)
This is an expansion of an impromptu Facebook post from yesterday. (I’m streamlining my online presence if you want to get more of my impromptu astrological insights as they arise, you can follow me on Facebook using the button below.) So, as I was writing about the day being chaotic, something told me to look up the etymology of the word chaos.
According to the Online Etymology Dictionary, the word chaos comes from the Greek khaos – whose root word is the word meaning “to yawn”. The entry says the traditional meaning of chaos comes from Hesiod (“Theogony”), “who describes khaos as the primeval emptiness of the Universe.”
Three thoughts here:
1. Chaos is not the same as disorder. It’s actually the void – the realm of pure potential and unlimited energy that is yet without form.
2. A yawn is like a physiological “reset button”. When we yawn, we fill the body with air and prana or chi (“in-spiration”) and we breathe out tension, tiredness, old thoughts and the like.
3. It’s natural for us to fear the void, but what happens if we change our mental stance from object (“Life acts on me”) to creator (“I’m the director of the dream”)?
Isn’t chaos actually the opportunity for a creator to focus and harness the energies of the Universe?
What do you think? If this morning is a moment of conception, how might you use it to create more of what you want? I’m curious…
