Reading of the Sky, for the 12th New Moon of Year XII, Tuesday the 26th of November 2019, at 16:09, मार्गशिर अमावास्या [mrigashira amavasya]
मार्गशिर अमावास्या [mrigashira amavasya] is the twelfth and fore last New Moon of Year XII, .. and the ninth in the Hindu calendar ..
.. she is the New Moon of Scorpio h, transiting through the नक्षत्र [nakshatra] of अनूराध [anurādha], ..
अनूराध [anurādha] commemorates the loving person we hold in the very center of our emotional attention, .. the sweetly loving and beloved being, .. the avatar and the substitute of our sweet and overprotecting mother ..
.. her solar and lunar ascendants are at 29°17' of Aries a, in House XII, in close conjunction 0 with Vesta L R placed also at 21°51'R of Aries a .. the desire or the need to make a back step, may be suddenly felt now within us ..
.. the Sun A, the Moon E and Pallas P the lonely female warrior, are all in conjunction 0 in Scorpion h .. they are isolated and exiled altogether .. alone and against all of them ..
.. Mercury B and Mars F are isolated in Balance g, our psychological and physical health only depend now on our relationship with the officially beloved on, .. this sweet buddy that is now so often, so distant and so strange ..
.. she is the New Moon of Sagittarius i, placed at 04°04' of his first decan, decan dedicated to Mercury B and Jupiter G, symbolizing the recovery of consciousness in a precarious environment, the retake in charge of the events of one's life, left for too long adrift ..
.. her solar ascendant is at 23°25' of Taurus b, in conjunction 0 with Vesta L at 16°07'R, signifying the almost obligatory return to home, to the starting point, in complete solitude ..
.. Jupiter G is still for a few days traveling home in Sagittarius i at 28°39', but soon will move into exile in Capricorn j in conjunction 0 with Ketu @, Saturn H and Pluto K .. who will attempt to contain him and to ensnare him ..
.. she is the twelfth Moon of the Year XII, called : the Cold Moon .. she is the first moon of winter, हेमन्त [hemanta] .. the magnetic Moon E that awakes us from our pathetic laziness, with her chills and her coldness .. she is the Moon of the Crystallization of the Water of the Soul .. she leads us to the Winter Solstice .. to the alchemical Christ ..
.. she is the Full Moon of the closing Accounts and of the Confession of the final Regrets, .. she is the Moon of Understanding and Letting Go, .. the Moon of Forgiveness and Compassion for one's mistakes, and one's equivocal behavior, fed by blind passion and sufferance .. and of course, also compassion for the selfish behavior of the others, which only illustrates ours .. we are all alike, but in different phases of the same cycles .. of the same wheel ..
.. मार्गशिर [mrigashira] literally means : the deer's head, .. the goal of a long hunt, .. the trophy to add to one's list of achievements .. and .. or : the demoniac hunter who methodically tracks his prey, .. the quest of the initiate for the very precious and sacred, the graceful and eternal self .. but it means also in a more initiatory way : the crossroads, .. the secret passage to be found between two worlds .. the tricky ways between two successive or simultaneous incarnations .. the migration from multiple suffering selves to one's non suffering self ..
.. मार्ग [mriga-] is what is in us simultaneously sweet and wild, .. sensual and free, .. unknown and subtle, .. strong and quivering .. in fact मार्ग [mriga-] is the immortal soul that travels within us tirelessly and cyclically, beyond life and death, despite joy and suffering, .. she is the impulse and emotion that makes us oscillate between sensuality and apprehension .. मार्ग [mriga-] is the irresistible attraction and the wave of suffering that the magnet of the Moon E impersonally puts us through .. by veiling us the true reality .. by showing us things that are not real .. by making us desire things that are not true .. by making us do things that are not appropriated ..
.. शिर [-shira] is the head, but also the mask, .. the nerve and the artery, .. the main usual and vital axes, .. the known and fixed directions, .. the major circonstances and the very personal reasons .. the foreseeable necessity and the opportunity to seize .. शिर [-shira] is the role and the need for identification that the Sun A makes us personally play or undergo .. putting us in a play in which the actors are not what they pretend to be, but masked facets of our own blind ego, .. « projections of my secret loves and our total hatreds of my facets ... or a revenge over the parental authority that I have badly experienced and appreciated in my past .. and who brings me still shady .. such an injury to my personal development » ..
.. मार्गशिर [mrigashira], like any ancient etymological concept, is a dual and shamanic identification, to observation and action, .. to narration and implication, .. to object and subject , .. here very precisely to the soul, the doe .. and to the persona, the hunter, .. to the victim and the culprit .. to the liberated and the hindered .. to the spontaneous emotion and to the chained in the role .. मार्गशिर [mrigashira] is a possibly incestuous staging, because, the blind reincarnation, and the blind identification of the ego, make us live indefinitely different roles with the same stakeholders .. thereby our parental, filial and marital love will mix incestuously within us infinitely .. by not knowing who I am, I will not know who hides behind the deer that I hunt .. and who is hiding within the hunter that I claim to be .. of which demon I could be the toy .. of which angel I could be the hangman ..
Today it's New Moon !! the Twelfth New Moon
and fore last moon of this Solar Year XII ..
मार्गशिर अमावास्या [mrigashira amavasya]
is the new moon of the « deer head »,
she is the new moon of कृष्ण [krishna], the « eater of all sins » ..
this मार्गशिर [mrigashira] moon is dedicated to forgiveness,
to appeasement and to forgetfulness
.. of all offenses ..
.. of all lies ..
मार्गशिर अमावास्या [mrigashira amavasya] reminds us about
the concept of original sin
and of perpetual reincarnation ..
.. of guilty ignorance
and so useful innocent amnesia ..
.. as we get reincarnated
in a very small .. and enclosed world ..
.. and as we don’t remember
who we are ..
.. and what we have been ..
.. what we have committed in our former life ..
and what we did so stupidly damage ..
during our last absence of consciousness ..
.. as we can’t guess today
why we are so much attracted by some one,
.. and so much unsettled by some else ..
.. as we can’t get the sense of this life
and as we can’t get the relevance
of any of our past lives ..
it is then possible ..
that during this lifetime,
anyone we chase and kill,
anyone we harass and hunt down ..
anyone we catch and make love to,
anyone we seduce and abuse ..
.. any hunted deer of today's lifetime ..
could be one of our best friends
or of our sweet spouses,
.. one of our lovely children
or of our dear parents,
of yesterday’s lifetime ..
this is the law of पुनर्जन्मन् [punarjanman],
.. the law of reincarnation of all souls ..
this is the law of कर्म [karma],
.. the endless repetition of all situations ..
we possibly meet always the same souls,
because we attract or fight them endlessly
by the same ways,
with the same skills,
but through different carnal disguises ..
.. we possibly are in love with the entities
who really hated us, .. badly abused us,
or nastily killed us,
in a previous life ..
.. we possibly are in war with the buddies
who really loved us .. maybe saved us, ..
or even gave us birth,
in a previous life ..
.. we don’t remember the true tragedy
behind an affinity ..
.. as we don’t remember the true love affair
behind a repulsion ..
we don’t remember the true compulsion
behind a « deja-vu » ..
.. as we don’t remember the true addiction
behind a crisis ..
we may be « serial-lovers »
.. as we may be « serial killers » ..
we are simply in love
with our own known problems ..
we simply hate what confront us
to our own unknown solutions ..
we don’t know the bad spell
behind our desires ..
.. as we don’t know the thrilling magnet
behind our fears ..
we don’t remember them on purpose ..
.. because we wouldn’t know what to do
with this embarrassing truth ..
.. and we have still so much desires to satisfy ..
some innocent minds might be
very nasty and guilty entities ..
some guilty people might be
good and innocent buddies ..
do we know who we are behind the mask
of the hunter or of the deer ?
do we know what the sense of
this non-sense life,
behind the ordinary role we have
in this non-personal theater scene ?
we could feel all so lonely
under the stage lights ..
.. as we could be all so related
behind the curtains of the scenes ..
we are all confronted to our inner void
..when we are showing up on stage ..
we are all committed in collusion
.. when we are going back
behind the scenes ..
ignorance turn us into innocent criminals ..
.. as insanity turns us into guilty victims
opening for us the heaven doors of amnesia ..
