We have a new moon in the secretive, passionate sign of Scorpio, supporting us in remembering the truths beneath the surface. Interestingly (also ironically?) these are truths that are likely also in plain sight, right in front of us to remember. One of these truths is that we are inextricably connected to everything in our world. The other is that we can look to sacred geometry for a deeper understanding of how and why this is the case. In my own experience with sacred geometry, it is less about the mathematical proofs (although I am grateful for those who did the legwork to give our modern minds scientific/mathematical "proof"), instead it is more about the visualization of "how" and "why" all things might be interconnected.
One of my favorite authors on the topic of sacred geometry is James Ross Godbe, author of Still Point: The Geometry of Consciousness. James speaks of sacred geometry in mathematical terms, but he also offers stunning visualizations that connect the vector equilibrium, the vesica piscis, the great pyramid in Egypt, with the flower of life.. and then also to the size orbit and orientation of the sun, moon and earth. His body of work is impressive to say the least! I recommend checking out his book if you have the inclination. FOr now, I want to share James' words about the nature of the flower of life:
"There is a primal geometry that is the blueprint of all that Is. It is called the Stillpoint...Vector Equilibrium or Flower of Life. 12 points around 1... all vectors or distances between points being equal. It is the primal geometry that defines a still... point... that doesn’t exist. It is, scientifically speaking, Fundamental to the genesis of the Universe. Just as consciousness itself, it is basic, inherent, and essential to the genesis of our Universe, the Stillpoint geometry is the Geometry of Consciousness."
For our purposes with this new moon, a deeper understanding of how and why the planets and other celestial bodies move and are connected support us in receiving the downloads from them when they magically appear in an astrology chart. With this new moon we have Ceres, Mars, the Moon, and the Sun in a fairly tight conjunction. Conjunctions are simply a combination and emphasis of the energies involved. Depending on the planets and other bodies involved they can be flowing or challenging.
I offer in the podcast that they are here to support us in being activated, uplifted into flowing versus challenging energetics. I also invited us to look at the experiences and events in our lives around this time and theme using the lens that if there are challenges, to "flow" with them and take them as signs that there is a simpler or higher vibration way to seeing or doing things.
The link between Ceres, Demeter and Shakti is also fundamental to feel into. We know of Ceres as the Greek counterpart to Roman Demeter, both commonly known as goddess of the harvest, fertility, womanhood. We may not know that this goddess also presided over the sacred law, the cycle of life and death, she was goddess of the seasons. When we remember and rediscover that Demeter literally means “Earth Mother” we begin to scratch the surface of her true significance and power. We can also look to the symbol used to represent Ceres for more clues, you can find the symbol at right. In Vedic Astrology, this glyph represents The Great Divine Mother in Hinduism. The Great Divine Mother was also known as Shakti, the divine feminine counterpart to divine masculine God Shiva. Shakti "means “power, strength, might, energy, or capacity.” To my understanding, Shakti is a fundamental concept within the Hindu Tradition. It represents the divine feminine, and is typically associated with the mother goddess. According to the Hindu tradition, Shakti is responsible for the universe's creation, maintenance, and destruction.
