Heart of the Rising Sun - Astro Synthesis in the Dance of Creation

I Circle of Spirit - Luminaries & Planets, Ascendant & Angles, Lunar Nodes & all Sensitive Points/Parts

Looking at life from the transpersonal cosmological perspective, to see the grander picture which is the universal dance of creation... and my part in it!

II Cross of Matter - Ascendant, MC/IC, Descendant and the Twelve Houses of Life

Labeling more specifically, in terms of my own life, what the twelve houses signify. Example using my own life...

1st House - Exercise - Physical & Mental (i.e. jogging, yoga, sitting meditation)
2nd House - Money - Earning it, Spending it, Budgeting & Making Connections
3rd House - Correspondence - Emails, Calls, Appointments, communications in general
4th House - Downtime/Reflection - Thinking, Journaling, Talking to Friends, Relaxing
5th House - Pleasure/Leisure - Everything done for fun, creative and romantic ventures
6th House - Work Duties - Showing up on time, performing of tasks & responsibilities
7th House - Social Connection(s) - Everything we do in the public company of others
8th House - Feng Shui - The elimination of dead matter, creation of space and flow
9th House - Cosmology - Man's quest for meaning, cosmic puzzle developed overtime
10th House - Aspiration(s) - Long term ambitions, goals, and heights of achievement
11th House - Friends, Guides & Mentors - Those whom we connect with that uplift us
12th House - Spiritual Life - What is my connection to God or Source Energy?

III Crescent of Soul - Individual Dharma & Personal Karma - What does my natal chart, Planets-signs-houses-aspects, reveal about my life, it's flow, function, purpose, aspiration and destiny?

Begin with the Sun-Moon-Ascendant as your fundamental and immediate NOW reality, each relating and integrating in a way that gives further expression, experience and evolution via the Inner & Outer Planets, the Angles, Nodes, Parts and Points. How does all this synthesize in your daily moment to moment existence? Astro-Synthesis is key to understanding that the whole (the individual) is greater than the sum of its parts.

IV Abhyasa & Vairagya - Laws of Vibration, positive thinking, feeling and action, and the letting go, the detachment from or death of something in our lives, clarification and purification of consciousness (external & internal) and returning to the Source. The role of the Outer Planets (especially Pluto) and Lunar Nodes play in the Sun's complete unfolding evolution. Here we blend the cosmological archetypes with the Reality of the Universe (and human life) as it is seen in the light of divine consciousness and awakening.

Uranus and Freedom from the Known - Transcending Jupiter-Saturn Consciousness

Jupiter shows us where a man or woman can just flow and be authentically oneself, within the social context of role playing, and naturally a lot of good comes out of this. This accompanied more often than not (in the average individual) with shadows of arrogance, carelessness or extravagance, an overly-cavalier and/or self-indulgent attitude toward life and (in some cases) a refusal to own up to what one chooses not to see in oneself. Out of control drunken behavior being a clear example of Jupiterian energy at its lowest half-cocked vibration. Jupiter, at its highest function, is the guide or philosopher who gives one an encouraging approach of positive inspirational thinking as a guide to living, with an optimistic outlook.

Saturn shows where it is not always okay to be freely self expressive, setting limits, enforcing rules and restrictions, adhering to codes of conduct, being fully accountable for daily responsibilities and having restraint or discipline. It is what we face each day based on the awareness that man or woman is not so perfect and free as the over-confident Jupiter has him/her thinking he/she is. There are skills to learn to make a living, errors and problems to be fixed , healing and growth that come through struggle and effort, or the discipline of a regular practice. Saturn's approach is modest and self-effacing, forever showing us how we can "do it better or right".

The excesses of Jupiter are tempered and there is a willingness to admit to a Reality or Truth (the outer planets) much greater than oneself alone. As large as the Sun is, and it's fullest expression via its largest planet Jupiter, is is but one Sun in a Universe of infinite others, and the capacity to learn new truths, explore new lands, and expand beyond anything one previously thought IS indeed a possibility! The first step to humble self and be willing to learn, inquire, see more to life beyond limits of the individual ego and personality perspective(s).

Chiron the wounded healer is a bridge from the middle to outer planets... it indicates a need for total healing and transformation that one must go through as a result of experiences in the world (Jupiter & Saturn). It is the crisis point where one must face the inner wounded aspects of oneself to go further beyond, to see clearly and act intuitively. Chiron is the key to Uranian cosmic consciousness.

It is only at URANUS, after having endured and gone beyond Chiron's testing ground, that the insight to life is clear. It is here that we are truly objective, feel the four winds, tempering Jupiter with Saturn, enlivening (or enlightening) Saturn with Jupiter, knowing when to switch back and forth, sometimes in the mundane physical world of Saturn other times in the formless spiritual realm of Jupiter.

What Uranus reveals intuitively to each individual has to be personally experienced, yet it's Truth differs slightly from Jupiter in that the Cosmic Wisdom beyond what one already personally knows (via Jupiter) reveals a truth previously unknown, and which is most relevant to the present moment or matter at hand.
