The Lunar Month of
August 30, 2008 - September 29, 2008

Astronomical Myth is a "picture language," imagery that articulates the qualities of cosmic intelligence expressing throughout the greater heavens and through our lives. We are not separate from the greater heavens, from the stars and planets around us, or from our beloved Earth, but are intimate parts of this dynamic, continually unfolding heavenly symphony. This entirety is our cosmic consciousness, the totality of our being. To explore the greater heavens and the heavenly cycles is to explore that which we are--our embracing consciousness and our spiritual evolution.

The stars would not be in the heavens
if we were meant to walk in darkness.

Venus, Mercury & Mars
Putting the Pieces Together

Just after the New Moon of Aug 31, the Moon conjoins Venus, Mercury and Mars, all of which reside in early sidereal Virgo. This threesome will continue to play a significant role throughout this lunar cycle of Sept 2008 as they all conjoin with each other, and with Mercury beginning its retrograde later in the lunar cycle.

Within the Lunar Cycle, Mercury will first conjoin Mars after First Quarter Moon; Venus will then conjoin Mars just after Gibbous Moon; then as Mercury slows to its station, Venus and Mercury conjoin just before Full Moon; Mars and Mercury then conjoin just after the Equinox Last Quarter Moon of Sept 21-22. And finally, Mercury begins its retrograde on Sept 24. (A new Earth Mercury synodic cycle will begin in the following Lunar cycle occurring in the Oct 2008.)

The theme here is the synthesis of mind, heart, and action; and establishing synergy within our inner biological environment. A simple question to ask ourselves is if all three are in harmony. If not, we are not participating from personal integrity. The integrated union of our Mercury, Venus and Mars bio-energy centers is an accomplishment of the highest order in our evolutionary sojourn on Earth. These are of the intellect, mind speech and communication; of the heart, the intuitive, our passion, sensual and erotic nature; and of creative action, our sexuality, and the use of raw primal force. Do we understand, do we feel, and do we respond?

The Monthly Lunar Planner:

Planetary cycles create the evolutionary currents of growth occurring within ourselves and our lives. To know what these cycles of life are asking of us is to consciously participate in life from a place of personal empowerment and inner peace. In this awareness and attunement, we can walk the path leading to our highest fulfillment--physically, emotionally and spiritually.

The Lunar Planner is an experiential tool teaching how to live in attunement to the natural Lunar & Planetary Cycles.
