Truth and reality - Heliocentric Solstice 06.2023

Updated: Jan 22

Truth and reality are big words - nevertheless somehow a very personal experience.

There is something I call "shared truth and reality" and the individual one - they can be completely different and I mean that on the "experience level"... for example dreams,

out of body experiences etc. are usually true and shared but on another plane and on this "plane" here, people don't share that same "memory". Even when being together with another person or with a group, the "shared" reality may differ, one person may see "this" and another one "that", one person may see something and another not...


We can calm ourselves by thinking "oh, a question of perspective" - yes, that it is but I know, there can come situations where that's not "enough", confusion is high and a search starts.

There might come a point, where we may just "surrender" the idea of there to be "an only truth" a "single reality" and we can see kind of "principles" at work... we "expand" to a view of where things do unite, become "one" in this sense...

Those "principles" can be called "Universal laws or natural laws" etc.


Whilst we're in this new "paradigm", there's a lot that needs to be revealed, looked at, noticed and in one form or another dealt with - that's in our "shared experience" and on the individual level...

Nothing of this is a threat (other than to the ego with all its fears, worries, ideals and beliefs) but kind of like the "push" into the so called "awakening" or "reset" (which has become a term associated with controlling and manipulative forces).... or as I like to call it for myself - "galactic view" - because I had a dream once, where I was sitting with a good friend of mine on a galaxy, as it would be a bench and we had a chat whilst enjoying the view....


I was just guided to a post I made 2 years ago - one not directly but indirectly connected to Astrology... I always love to "connect sciences or dots" and experiment with it all....

It's all there in that post - here it is, I'm sure, you'll find it interesting....



Heliocentric Solstice June 2023


Even though, solstices and equinoxes aren’t a big event for the Sun per se, these are important markers for Earth and in heliocentric Astrology we “observe” also Earth.

The Solstice for Earth is important as it marks the times of the year, when we see the Sun in farthest declination (it has to do with the pole-tilt) either north or south… therefore we see in June the Sun aligned with the celestial northpole and Earth herself in longitude over the celestial southpole (the poles thought into space). Whereas equinoxes last for only seconds in the "exact second of declination", the solstices are active for several hours...


This Solstice happens on 21st of June 2023 at Universal time 15:00 – Thailand 23:00



Heliocentric astrology chart about the Solstice June 2023

The Earth/Moon system stands at 4°40’33” sidereal Sagittarius still in orb of conjoining the Galactic Center in longitude. This axis also marks the aphelion (Sagittarius) and perihelion (Gemini) axis of Saturn as well as the “gate of God/gold” for Earth and “gate of Man/silver” for the Sun. These “gates” mark the points in longitude on the ecliptic where the galactic equator “crosses” and as above mentioned, the celestial poles are involved too.

The Sun in geocentric view stands over/north of the star Betelgeuse, the shoulder of Orion and is conjoined by Juno, who is much closer to Betelgeuse.... well, in fact the Earth/Moon system is opposed by Juno "on the other side" of the Sun in the center.


------------------------------------------------------------------


Those who follow my writings know, that I think of “south” as “home” and when this is slowly approaching “alignment” with the Galactic Center, I find this significant – but yet, the “exact” alignment in longitude is going to take many more years… so, therefore, I take the alignment we’re slowly separating from – the galactic equator crossing nodes – and the time ahead as of preparation and most importantly foundation building…

You see, anything that has to do with “equatorial points” is meaning “action points” – Earth rotates around the own axis and the velocity (distance per day) at the poles small whereas along the equator in the same amount of time, much more “distance” needs to be made, therefore in this sense, it’s very “windy”/full of action along the equator… same time it’s kind of “equal”, just like dusk and dawn are only a very short period of time compared to other places on Earth and so is the difference between day and night almost same and almost all year round.. just like the galactic equator (milky way) isn’t just a “line” but more like a “band”, so is the equatorial region on earth and many planets similarly “wide”…

------------------------------------------------------------------------

I have talked a lot about Orion and Juno in my last post, about the month of June’s triple conjunction of Mars, Pallas and Orcus. This triple conjunction is active in the Solstice chart as well, so if you want to know more… – this link brings you there


Here in short: Juno represents “one to one relationships” of all kinds – also the one with Self, because only one who is “loving self”, respects self, etc., is also being able to give the same respect and love back – she’s about “mutual relationships”, the balance and harmony…. Yet, that’s something also within self, as we’re a “collective” ourselves in this sense. Therefore, her themes extend to how we “govern” ourselves and that may show on the “global stage” as well as for example between politicians, in business and so on…


Orion can be understood as foundation building from “blueprint” – also a kind of decision of “activation” of a “program”… what are we “carrying” the weight of on our shoulder, are we using it to hold up with our arm a club, a sword or maybe a torch to be “lit up” by the “fire” of the Sun within.


Maybe it’s also an “idol” that we’re “holding up”, a savior, someone presenting a “solution” (to whatever), a “hero” or a life partner… - yet, such is for sure not a balanced way nor an “equal” one… mind you, we all have our “field of expertise or experience” we can share, be asked about or “valued and honored” for, yet in other fields we may have to become the one asking for help, or in short “the student can become the teacher and vise versa”.


Yet, let us look at this from another perspective – the Earth/Moon system at the tip of Sagittarius Bow or arrow and near the Galactic Center. So, it’s on one side (GC) a place of stability, power and in some ways maybe even “origin” (in this galaxy) and on the other side a “focal, targeting or aiming” point.

Sagittarius is often also called the “truth seeker” – well, a normal reaction is to bring “light” into a situation, seek for learning, a broader view, intuition or whatever “tools” we individually use…

Interestingly though, the “solar apex”, meaning the path of the Sun is towards a point north and to the side of the GC – it’s somewhere in between the constellations Hercules and Lyra….


The more we go into a trusting, loving relationship with ourselves, the more stable we may feel within and may open up to the "guiding system" of ours, including it's manifestations showing as “needed” – just like parents do things for the greater good of the child, that looks for the child as a “punishment” or something bad, cruel etc. (and the other way round)…

I have over the years often said, that there are no “coincidences” – synchronicities, yes… and we can “follow” them, observe them and act on them…. They’re there to help us, to “show us the way”… can we see that “truth”… or that it’s actually ourselves that “produce” them in some odd ways – that everything is a reflection and a “call”…


The Earth/Moon system is flanked on either side 60 degrees away by Saturn (order, structure, authority) in sidereal Aquarius near the star Ancha and on the other side Ceres (nourishment, mothering) in sidereal Virgo conjoined the star Heze a little north of the ecliptic - that means, together with Juno (one to one relationships, ratios, equality), they all form a nice kite choreography or a pyramid or a diamond... this choreography stands in relation to the bow of Sagittarius as well as to a child laying in the snow, drawing an angel.... Yes, not really astrological terms but I think you get the picture - it's also a question of "foundation" of how and where we lead the creative and harmonious (in itself stable) energy to...


There are some other “little” placements in Sagittarius:

The dwarf planet (plutino) Ixion, “the lust for life” – standing at the “Gate of God, golden gate”…. He’s in “Pluto’s realm” and in a 3:2 resonance with Neptune – so it’s something deep that we need to become “clear, aware” about. “Lust for life” can be beautiful but it can also become entrapping or can produce “karmic cycles”…

The dwarf planet Quaoar “sacredness / harmony of life” standing together with Pholus a wise Centaur a bit further into Sagittarius in longitude and quite a bit north of the ecliptic over the bow of Sagittarius and at the border to the constellation Scutum.



An important placement is also the separating conjunction of Jupiter and Eris on the cusp between sidereal Pisces and Aries with Jupiter conjunct (also in latitude) with the star Torcularis of Pisces.


Torcularis means an oil or wine press and cellar. It’s located at the string of the upwards swimming fish of Pisces. – An interesting “side note” of mythology – it’s said, that it was Pholus’ father who invented the “vine press” and it was also him, who was foster-father to Dionysus (who was later known as the god of wine and Pholus as the guardian of the Centaur’s wine cellar).

We’re talking “essence” pressing here – that needs “tension”, force just as when you squeeze the juice out of a lime or so, or we can say we take “space” away – in a less literal sense, we can look at it as making “conclusions”…

With Jupiter, it’s also about expansion of consciousness, higher view-points and learning, beliefs, foreign cultures etc. … yet, with Eris nearby, it’s about “reality”. So, therefore it’s about how something IS – the essence – not how it looks like, not how we think it “should” be or could be or would be etc. (note, these words are in the “conditioning” form) – it’s the now, the present and presence…

Therefore, there’s a kind of “observing” energy involved as well as participation – a noticing in some ways… what we see around us and within us and what their “connection” might be…

Such a “press and cellar” (Torcularis) can also be interpreted as a “separating” – what can we “store”, keep etc. and what we let go of…. Experiences are a “story” that holds a certain “theme” and “teaching” – instead of storing the whole book, we can keep the teaching and let the rest go… any “liquids” within ourselves are also “pushed” through smaller and thinner veins and arteries, flowing down and up and to the sides, yet we have more than just 1 “circuit” within our bodies – some more known of than others…


I find this very matching when thinking of the fact that in heliocentric Astrology, Orion is rising, while some stars of Sagittarius, Ophiuchus and Scorpio are setting… giving the Pholus, Quaoar, Ixion and Earth/Moon system the quality of “southnode”, meaning “harvesting”, discerning and all that comes with this “quarter”… The Earth-Moon system as the “manifestations”, yet, not only in an “annual” sense but also in the vaster sense of “ages, whole cycles, history, ancestors and origins”…


Venus stands in early sidereal Scorpio – this is also close to Juno's aphelion - the names of the major stars in Libra do translate from Arabic into the “claws” of the scorpion, so an “ancient connection”. Balance, harmony, the weighing of the heart (judgment) to name some of the classical key words… In the longitude where Venus stands, we find south of the ecliptic the story of the Centaur who puts Lupus (the wolf or beast in general) onto the altar – more directly involved are some stars of Lupus and further south the Centaur’s leg with the famous “Alpha Centauri” (a triple star system containing Rigil Kentaurus A, Toliman B and Proxima Centauri C the closest star to the Sun) and even further south the constellation Chamaeleon. In the far north, some stars of the constellation Serpens and Hercules.


Lupus, the wolf – well, there are many stories of one or several wolves that have become “foster mother/parents” to either Humans or other animals… such stories are also found about other wild animals (beasts) all over the world, depending what kind of animals there are in those locations. Therefore, in this sense, there are two obvious “sides” to such “wild beasts” – the care, protection of the “young” as well as the survival and hunting instincts…


The Centaur is half human, half horse standing on the galactic equator "protecting" the southern cross constellation.

Having a “sensory system” for “danger” isn’t something bad, its helpful but to live in constant alertness, stress, fears and worries does same time blind us, if there should actually be a “real danger”… (I mean, don't underestimate a hungry wild animal - nor human).

Generally spoken, it's the act of putting that which "holds us back" onto the altar, the "beast" we fear within us... that which takes over at times and isn't realistic, nor "justified" but may make us "losing sight"....

I think, for some of us it might go even a step further - to actually also let go of this "protective" thing, because it might at one point be a "relict of the past"...



Venus represents the “heart” in the sense of our values and their resulting desires, beauty, art etc. – may that now be within or without… Venus is of pentagonal energies in her relation or “orbital dance” with Earth and as you know from my work with planetary cycles, there are always “cycles within cycles”. It's actually the Venus-Earth dance, which shows us the beauty of cycles and the importance of planetary nodes the same time - they form the so called “Venus transits” in front of the Sun (comparable with a solar eclipse, yet because of the distance, Venus' only be visible as a black dot), which happens usually in pairs with the last been in June 2004 and 2012 at Venus’ southnode in later Scorpio, constellation Ophiuchus and the next pair will be in the next century. Yes, there was also another conjunction near her southnode in 2020 – yet, not exact enough to form a transit. Their next conjunction will be on 13th of August 2023 in later sidereal Capricorn.

When we look at such Venus transits as something talking about a “new phase” of pentagram drawings, then that southnode becomes even more significant as being of “harvest and discerning” energy again… We have loads of that within our “now times”….



If you like reading my posts - you can...


I have mentioned Ixion before – that “lust for life” – got a lot to do with our values and desires isn’t it… well, not to forget the fact, that his nodal axis/orbital cross is only 5 degrees away from Venus’.


Venus is with her orbital points, perihelion and aphelion aligned with Neptune, Mercury and Mars… Venus in this Solstice chart is in a last trine (120° angle) to Neptune and Neptune also stands in a first 45° angle formed by Mercury. … So, you see, we have this “transcending”, going beyond theme – kind of “breaking through veils”, may that now mean something we’ve forgotten or have been “deceived” by etc.

If we have the “desire” to break through, to leave the “judgments” behind and to trust, a kind of “change of color” will manifest in various ways (constellation Chamaeleon, color as chemicals and their vibrations) – the “higher mind’s communication and collaboration” (Mercury) with the Venusian aspects of life… When we can “manifest” this desire, which is anyways in the currents of bigger cycles, we kind of "surrender" and accept a "different flow"...



You may ask, how this all links to Earth? – Well, the geometry with Venus is pentagonal and the one with Mercury is triangular (which is the most stable shape) and both are representing platonic solids…

So, this means, that within our communications within Self, we shall be most truthful – if we can’t admit to have made a mistake to ourselves, we can’t do to the outside neither and lots of deception, trickery and so on will follow… vise versa, if we can’t be proud and happy about something we did well, how can we present it to the outside in this “light”…

The more honest we are with ourselves, also our emotions and where they actually “originate from”, the more we also gain the ability to see through facades, lies and deceptions in the outside world and receive the guidance, answers, purpose etc.

All of this may also give answers to the themes of “ascension”, raise of consciousness and vibration, how to deal or “align” with the serpent(s) within, the energy bodies etc. …

Because see, if we only see ourselves as a victim of this or that or needing to find someone or something to blame or an enemy, this also means we don’t trust ourselves, our “soul and spirit”, neither in that what many may call “god, source, the universe” … and I’m here talking about personal happenings, what is in the individual life…

All very simple but not necessarily easy… yet, when knowing we do the best we can, that’s the best already…



Talking about “life path” – it may link to Orcus and his triple conjunction with Mars and Pallas – they’re very close in this Solstice chart… so you may want to check that out… the link again:


Also, you may want to re-read the Jupiter – Eris post … it’s in my opinion a significant one, as the preparation for the next one, which will take place at the star Torcularis…

Eris does also have a lot to do with “revelations”, when we see the “reality” that’s a logical consequence right…


Much Love to you All,

Fran
