glyph for Lilith
Watch out for the Black Moon, Lilith
Have you noticed that things seem a little crazy in the USA these days?
The shootings of recent years seem to have tailed off for the moment,
maybe because politics has gotten the spotlight.
And people can vent either through candidates or at them.
We have been seeing more than a bit of the unusual in the interminable electioneering.
But, it is not just a billionaire TV man running for President,
nor a woman and a Jew running for the White House,
nor the Republican field once having ten candidates debating in one forum.
I think that the situation is more complicated than it might seem. It usually is.
So, I have been paying attention to the horoscope of the USA as the election years unfolds.
Considering the pictures which show up, I can’t but think that we haven’t seen anything yet.
Because Lilith - Black Moon - comes up prominently in USA charts in the passing times.
You say, “Never heard of the Black Moon. Blue Moon, I suppose.
It turns Red sometimes. But, nay, Black Moon.”
Well, you are right as far as you go. The Black Moon does not exist as a luminary in the sky.
It is a calculated point ... “the empty focus ” of the moon’s elliptical orbit around the Earth.
It thus relates to non-physical dimensions.
The Black Moon was named after Adam’s first wife Lilith.
Yes, he had a wife before Eve, according to Hebraic tradition.
She apparently wasn't the domestic type and left Adam to become the Queen of the Night.
Astrological Lilith - the Black Moon suggests the night side, shadows, darkness,
things generally hidden from awareness.
The Black Moon describes “the place of dreams, the garden of desires,
the impossible dream, the primal mate, the twin-soul,
the pot at the end of the rainbow … but this place is very dangerous …
it can devour you like a whirlpool!”
“It contains all the more instinctual energies
which manifest themselves in fairy tales and in primitive lunar symbolism
[but are not consciously allowed in our outer, modern, digital, techy times]:
the night, the mystery, the magic, the danger, the secret, the fear, that which is forbidden...”
“The Black Moon belongs to the world of the dark and the womb,
in both its terrible and its more positive transformational magic aspects.”
[Juan Antonio Revilla]
Now, most of us can relate to unusual things occurring when the Full Moon passes by.
When the Black Moon has its days, watch out.
The Black Moon gives a symbolic sense of what things might be
leaking in from the other side - or another side - the dark side …
the astral and imaginative worlds.
When it hits its stride and is doing its thing, we can expect otherworldly,
oddball, and mysterious sorts of activity - not necessarily dangerous, but possibly so.
I liken the effects of that Black Moon to an adventure in the Twilight Zone.
Interestingly, Rod Serling (creator of the Twilight Zone for TV, way back when)
had the Black Moon alone in his First House.
[The First House alone can define a chart especially when it is populated by only one luminary.]
Still, one figure does not make a chart. It just gives hints, sometimes very strong ones.
Well, there are hints that the USA is going to be dealing with the Black Moon and
quite possibly the Twilight Zone this year. We have likely seen some previews already.
[The Black Moon was prominent in key charts related to the 911 experience in the USA.]

Signs of the Times: 2014, An XYZ Year
It is hard for me to say Happy New Year, because the signs say it may well be an XYZ Year.
X because it may be the time of a Great Crossing. It starts out - to be sure - as the Year of a Grand Cross.
Y because we are still in the orb of the Millennium transition - Y2K. That Great Passage is still occurring and its effects persist.
Z for Z______, a word which is becoming more and more common in the vocabulary, in the media, and as a tag for many events. Like a Z_____ Christmas.
I desisted from writing a note recently about having a Z_____ Christmas, because I didn’t want to disturb anyone’s holiday. I do hope everyone had a Merry, Happy, or Joyful Christmas.
If you dare to consider the XYZ Year ahead, read on. Send comments to me at theportableschool at gmail dot com, if you like - good, bad or indifferent.
In a similar vein, you may wish to peruse the new front page of http://peoplemedicine.net.
I recently posted a long list of links to 75 articles I collected from the Internet over the past few years
which show our present brand of Doctor Medicine in its Good, Bad, and Unknown angles.
I predict that 2014 will be an XYZ Year with all that comes along with those ultimate letters of our western alphabet. Those letters seem to portend major challenges. They also may indicate substantial opportunities.

hardy history, pioneering spirits and regular reminders that God is still creating.
