Re: I have a aspect pattern Pandora's Box, need help to understand.

Well, I think your question is a valid one.

I've been reading a great thread on this site lately that deals with some of this. It is proposes some conclusions that I independently came to through other sources and may have some information for you.

This is one thing I've noticed him not doing, and I'll ask him to try it. He's not a very spiritual person, but it's worth a try. It's interesting, sometimes the simplest advice is the best...!

It's interesting, in one of the threads I supplied a link to in an earlier post there is a man with a Pandora Box shape who is not very spiritual at all. Very similar to your friend. I think that's why it's so important to see how it is rotated/aligned in the scope.

I think one reason why I may have tuned into all this is due to my Cancer Asc as well as my Moon being in the 12th...

Re: I have a aspect pattern Pandora's Box, need help to understand.

...what about self-honesty? the unity of who we are as a person is built on the foundation: self-honesty, in the verb, regardless if it's the pretty side, or not so pretty side of us...This is probably the frustration I felt with people I encountered on the path of light. That the Cosmo already IS, that IS include every reality we encounter, every darkness reside in or out of us, yet the path of "light" that I often see is the tempt to "erase" our own shadows, and create an illusion of reality in reality dose not exist... how can we come to the deep acceptance of others, when we can't even come to the deep acceptance of the "self"?

Well I think this depends on your personal philosophy of life and why we are here. "Deep acceptance" is relative and can't be measured unfortunately...

I wanted to come back to the very last sentence in my first post. I think there's a reason why the others with Pandora Boxes are not here any longer. It doesn't offer any ultimate truth and possibly just complicates matters more. It may be better to leave astrology all together and just live without analyzing it all...

Most likely the reason I'm still here is that I mostly check this board while at work as I have the time then. Plus I get little tidbits here and there that I like and get a chance to maybe help someone along a bit.

Plus, as we've seen, watching transits can be useful but ultimately it seems there's nothing we can really do about what happens but to maybe be more aware...

Re: I have a aspect pattern Pandora's Box, need help to understand.

Stillone,

YOU ARE PERFECT THE WAY YOU ARE!!! a complete being driven by true kindness more than anything else, driven by your own unique, diverse, complete energy as the Cosmo created you. What I say, or anyone else say really have no power over who you are. you are perfect! I ask these questions, and I do not look for answers in words, I look for them in deeds and emotional currents. I believe the "light" of that reality far more than I believe any accomplishments and words...even on a day like this when my energy is on the aggressive end.

So I gather here, even in silence, is who people truly are, via their choices.

Re: I have a aspect pattern Pandora's Box, need help to understand.

Someone passed away, although she was not my immediate family, death still hits me like a train rack. All though this time we prayed for her, knowing may be it won't come to what we wish for, nothing still compares to that numbness, shock, and sadness... we all deal with it so differently...I just want to tell everyone I come across that...love yourself, love those who shared life with you, I love you all. I feel the difference, how earlier this year, mourning was so private, death was so intimate, how through that experience, I learned love need to be voiced, unconditionally.

I know now, when the Cosmo want you to experience something, teach you something, there is nothing man-made, mental preparation, planning can shield you from it, like a storm, you are tossed in, and you have to fight your way out of it, or you may be forever lost. this is how we truly learn...

Astrology is like a mountain, why do we climb it? because it's there. When words find me again, I will share my findings.

Take care of yourselves, with lots of love.

Re: I have a aspect pattern Pandora's Box, need help to understand.

Energies are up and high lately, so it’s a good time to let them out.
It has been a long while, quite a lot has happened, both in the physical and spiritual realm. The mountain of astrology… I’ve been reading a lot actually, I can’t say I am actively learning astrology, but I learned about astrology in the time I have. There are so many things can be said, but I want to filter them out to the outward expression of the simplicity of the sources. I read about the difference of sidereal and tropical. To which I have an idea, I would like to share it. The idea is, any science, learning, starts from raw data with observations. Since we didn’t really create the source of things, our path to it has to start here, even our imaginations. So the science of the effect of natural energies (here astrological energies) has on humans at condition of his/her birth, is the root of everything. Scientific methods, are methods, there is no good or bad methods, there is only functional or non-functional methods at present. The difference of modern and ancient and eastern and western astrology is the discrepancy of methods. I’d like to offer the idea that imaginative astrologers can, as an observer, look at the shifting of degrees, vs the constant, in comparison to the shift of human consciousness, like separating DNA, may be this would actually offer the science of astrology the chance to pin point sectors of universal energy. If the spectrum is broad enough, it could actually reflect sources like magnetic fields, seasonal changes as sources to understand human consciousness. It’s actually quite curious to ponder about it. But this is an idea, floating without the energy to push it forward… : P
The other thing is pretty personal, the effect of learning about astrology has on me. Looking at my own chart, having a vision of the map that made no sense at the beginning, actually begin to make a whole lot of sense now. Like the energy of yods, things I don’t feel in my consciousness was presented in a way, like when you force the computer to recognize a driver by physically linking them together, that I have to SEE it. Vision forced recognition. Then once that link was made, certain things start to make a great deal of sense. Thanks, to astrology.
The last thing is acceptance, I have read around the forum as well, about how to deal with the lack of choices in what is GIVEN. What about the ones we don’t “want”? well, to me this is like eating, it cannot be cured, stopped, satisfied by anything you do at any one day, it’s something you do every single day of your life, once that is established, huger is no longer a burden, it can be enjoyment for what we can turn that experience of eating into. In me personally, I carry a great deal of guilt as a result of the energy that was given to me, I accept that, stop beating myself up for feeling guilty, once that acceptance was made, then I can recognize when that energy was at work, vs the reality of what is going on, and I can upon recognition and consciousness, smile at myself, instead suffer from it. Hope this helps.
: )

Very interesting... Transiting North Node just was conjunct your Mercury... Did you have some of these flashes of insight recently? I have this transit coming up!

Re: I have a aspect pattern Pandora's Box, need help to understand.

Hi Stillone, hope everything is going well with you too. yeah, the universe works in mysterious ways!

consciousness comes to me in steady streams, but communication is like one of those little spa, it over flows to the pool below only when it's full! lol. I know Saturn is going to transit my mercury in a while, I wonder what that's going to bring. Mercury is one of the two planets I have very little aspect to, mercury been unaspected can be very unpredictable. North node transiting mercury, my recent self-revelation does have to do with life purposes and it has to do with communications, but it has been brewing for quite a while now. How about you? has it effected you in that direction?

Re: I have a aspect pattern Pandora's Box, need help to understand.

Lol, if the universe wants us to experience something, we will. : )

But it's funny how everyone's learning path is so different, I literally have to experience something to gain it. Like Astrology, reading it gets me somewhere, but to myself feels nowhere, but when I soak myself in the energy of them, I gain that knowledge in giant leaps. So in learning astrology, I've only gone as far as learning the sign Libra, what that energy feels like aside from myself. and I've a taste of Leo, Scorpio, cancer, Pisces, Aquarius, Gemini a little bit...from interacting with them even briefly, each has a very distinct taste, I can't explain it, it's like the sun gives you a major flavor, some are sweet, some are spicy, some are sour, etc, can't describe it, just generalizing for a visual. Sun sign does give off these unmistakable flavors, without seeing their chart or anything else, no wonder we are referred to by it. the macro energy of human beings? lol, but it's fascinating.

By the way, I've read your post of quotes....hmm, what happened? it smells like something has changed, an optimism has shifted from a state of being to a state of need...

Nothing's really happened... then again, sure, things happen! But, no, there's no need or any crisis of any type. I merely receive two sources of quotes daily at my job. I post the ones that I think are good and may be helpful to others.

One thing that has happened is that my progressed moon has finally moved from Scorpio to Sag! I think I'm feeling a bit lighter as a result. I'm not brooding as much and have become a bit more jovial. It's a nice change.

Re: I have a aspect pattern Pandora's Box, need help to understand.

In that case I'm happy for you things are lighter. In case in the future things are not as light please know I'm all ears. I know sometimes even when I'm surrounded by people I can feel I have no one to talk to.

By the way, I do also want to apologize for been inconsiderate/unappreciative in the past, I know I can be, and I know Libras are very forgiving, but I still like to say it because it is the right thing to do. Thanks and have a good day, and I will too.

Re: I have a aspect pattern Pandora's Box, need help to understand.

I spend almost a month during the winter breaks visiting the national parks out west. I love feeling awe stuck by the creation of nature, consciousness poured through me as I feel that energy. While I was on the plane, I watched the terrain below, and was struck by how similar it looked up above compared to the sand dunes I saw on beaches, and how life cling to areas where it can thrive, and thrive there. So is humanity, the flickering lights of humanity thrived at valleys and lowlands and near sources of fresh water, above or under the ground.

So if we look at the energy of our birth as a map… then what is a map? Why do we need maps? What can a map mean in our existence of consciousness? While on this trip it also struck me that humanity is consciousness, nothing has any “meaning” without the subjectivity of consciousness, this idea was also expressed in movies like “life of Pi” and other literatures with or without my awareness. So a map without a reader, is meaningless, it’s just “IS”. There is no “meaning” in IS. Our human world is the world of subjectivity, objectivity serves the understanding of that subjectivity.

Going back to the map of our energy, so if we are the readers of that map, and the meaning of a map is to provide a “direction” other than decorative or knowledge based non-functional purpose, “direction” is extremely functional, useful when someone is “lost”. So if you are an engineer, what would you do when you want to follow a river that flows? You follow that source, the direction, the terrain, the obstacle, and the release. Then if you want to build a dam, you would work with the said source, direction, terrain, and obstacle and find a new release.

The Cosmo created energies, it did not create marriage, jobs, society, etc, etc. so before the energy was interpreted into the functionality of human civilizations. To me it works in two major functions, consciousness and expression. How do we arrive at the inward understanding and express it to the outside of our body. Every relationship we have either personal or social revolves around these understanding and expression.

Focusing on my recent transit of the node over my mercury, how would I know the feeling of “purpose” (as the node transit would normally give a person when it’s over a major energy hob) is the real “purpose” vs a surge of transit power? It crystalized to me because I have felt the support in my energy make up to make my “vision” happen. I have seen the map, and in however a vague way understood where everything lay, although it didn’t make sense to me at first, I come to realize my life has not “lined up” with my energy. Yes, we are born with these energies with or without believing or knowing or understand Astrology. The life we have lived is also a form of “map”. In reviewing that map, I could pinpoint certain things that is NOT working (also shown on my chart) and understood the “vision”if realized, could meanwhile resolved these “problems” of my life. The real purpose of my life in human civilization is not written in stars, the stars tells me how my energy, as evident by the life I lived, could flow on the map of what is given me. It’s hard to explain, other than similar to the discussion of “death” indicators I’ve seen on the forum, there has to be multiple indicators and supports in your chart, confirmed by the life you lived, to point to something that would “hold” everything together, would flow.

Hope I have explained my discoveries clear enough for the purpose of mutual learning.

So would you say that this is much different than your previous understanding of how your life has been? When I say "much different", I mean a drastic change from your prior viewpoint? Or, is it more of a confirmation of the direction you've been moving in all along?

This one is important, I think, and I would appreciate your answer... as I have other thoughts to reveal on this...

Yes, thanks for sharing! I think you have some important points that you're making.

I'm wondering if, at some point in your life, you decided that you should try to be something else besides who you are naturally? I ask because you mention flow and I think when we decide we want to be something else or like someone else we may possibly stop this natural flow of energy... even if it's our destiny to do so... or in our "map".

I would really appreciate your thoughts on these points...

Thanks

Re: I have a aspect pattern Pandora's Box, need help to understand.

To answer these questions.

First let me go back to live the map (life) vs. seeing the map (chart). I would say when living the life, it's too close to take in the big picture, so it's easy to be caught in details. where as seeing the chart, you have an idea of what your energy is about with or without living it yet. If I make an example. I am not an astrologer, I can't speak that language, but I can speak the language of "LIFE" using people who lived it publicly. Let's take the example of Bruce Lee, we know what life he had lived, and the fact, through his own word and expression, that he believe the physical form as an expression of who he IS. And that expression is self-knowledge. He could have lived a very different life, like that of his teacher Ye Wen, who is a master of the art of combat, I believe his method is still used today in combats and special forces because it was so effective. He was a very private man, so to live that bodily expression, it can be either private, or public. It’s both answering that energy of mars. Where as to live a private life, would not meet the energy of “out-ward” expression in Bruce’s energy make up. So you see a true path for Bruce lee is to express it outwardly. Penetrating the world, instead of merely living it in his solitude. So to answer the question of if life has to be completely different or against one’s nature, I would say no, more like needing imagination and creativity to find a path to express, meanwhile relate to civilization at large.

I hope I have answered your question clearly as I see it.

Re: I have a aspect pattern Pandora's Box, need help to understand.

Well this wasn't really the type of reply I was anticipating... Then, I do have a problem with anticipation and expectation! Lol

I was thinking in terms of the definition of the Pandora structure that I mentioned earlier in this thread:
Quote:
A person with this structure should already have learnt as a child that what he says can be taken the wrong way. This teaches him to keep everything to himself. This can mean that as an adult, he has forgotten what a treasure he has inside him, and he then needs to work on himself to rediscover it.
I wanted to highlight that last sentence because, I feel that I'm in this process. Also, I've read in many places that those with Yods tend to have a drastically different later half of their life. Most likely as the Yods are recognized and utilized... or maybe recognized and pacified.

Re: I have a aspect pattern Pandora's Box, need help to understand.

Oh, in this aspect then yes, because the treasure is buried within, meaning it was always there, it just didn't make it to the surface (consciousness) to us for a good part of our lives. Since it was not in our consciousness, then it was never "utilized" with conscious expressions, it shows up as random, or over looked aspect of our lives. Then when the vision of path was displayed in the "map", then there will be the moment of "oh, I see how this vision could be realized since it already is showing this or that way"... am I making sense? As for the need to adjust as a result of life events, yes... as I think back on my life, sudden events is the "norm" of my reality, I have moved so many times I literally lost count, I do not envision life two years down the road since I don't know where I will be. and part of the vision is actually to put down rocks of Choices and realize letting go to total randomness could be something that works against myself, I may still be "drifting" in a sense since most of our planetary energies are "drifters", but it could be channeled movement instead of total randomness. I envision this consciousness could make a world of difference.

Remember when I said "consciousness is subjective?"

I think it's interesting what you say as your experience and to a certain extent I feel the same. However, I think earlier on in my life that I buried these facets of myself. I think I looked too much to others to see what I should be doing. I was always asking questions and looking to others for their opinions and answers... not completely trusting my instinct. I think this was also magnified by the Venus conj Neptune aspect as this can tend to be rose-colored glasses and putting people on pedestals.

However, as I've aged I've often found that what my instincts and intuition has told me has been the right course of action (Sun Ur conj?). Not what others have suggested for me or stated was true for them and so should apply to me. So a lot of back tracking and starting over has happened. However, I can't help to think that it's by design in order to teach the greater lesson of self-reliance and perseverance. Also, I think a lesson like this helps to then reveal the treasure inside and that it manifests differently than others, like it does for all people... however, I think I buried a lot for fear of being too different and unconventional.

I notice you cover a lot of this in your second post (post 11 in this thread).

I'm not sure if I mentioned earlier that I have moved a large number of times as well. It's interesting the similarity here. I was thinking about this and what I think this has caused is a forced need to adapt and change constantly. Thus bringing in a humbleness for not having control. It also brings about a sense of worldliness since you can most likely fit in relatively well in most situations. I also think that you can draw on these lessons when you feel the need to change.

I've also been contemplating flow quite a bit. You mention drifting, channeled movement and randomness in your post. I've thought for some time that I have a narrow path. When I'm on the path things seem to flow forward in a magical way. When I'm off the path I find frustration and depression. The key is finding the path and staying on it. Here I think the Yod apexes provide ideas on the way.

Re: I have a aspect pattern Pandora's Box, need help to understand.

I recently posted some information that may be useful here regarding the Quincunx as well as some notes on Yods. The original thread is here: http://www.astrologyweekly.com/forum...ad.php?t=61226

The quincunx aspect is one that requires an adjustment. An adjustment is something that results from analysis. I think this is why the Hubers liken the quincunx aspect to a thinking aspect. It requires thought in order to integrate the energies since they don't "see" each other in any way on any common ground.

In Aspect Pattern Astrology by the Hubers, p. 34:

The long green aspect causes insecurities on the one hand and on the other the urge to achieve an imagined future goal. Sometimes it is also called the "longing aspect. It often brings decision crises, uncertainty, and eventually the challenge of restricting oneself to a single goal, in which case it aids decision-making. It is called the "large thinking-step" and, according to the planets involved, it causes a "Faustian struggle" with the truth.
In a Yod this irritation is amplified and propels the native to search for a solution. I like to think of it simply as "an itch that needs to be scratched". This search is what brings on the strength of the Yod since as we move in the direction of the Yod, we appease it's energies and accumulate knowledge in it's direction. This sets up a positive feedback loop where we're encouraged to push further in the direction until we understand and master it's energies since it feels good and right to satiate the unusual internal energy.

Bill Tierney states in Dynamics of Aspect Analysis:

It should be apparent that the combination of influences expressed in the Yod could be quite a special challenge to constructively alter and bring into clearer focus that which impairs or hinders the total functioning of the individual. Here, inner and outer forces are working together to stimulate subtle but heightened pressures which may eventually release themselves during a timely crisis in self-awareness. This turning point could take years before it emerges and presents new alternatives to the individual. But when it does, the individual is then ripe and ready for a very fated change or destined new outlook in his life. The course of action he then takes can completely reprogram the entire focus of his life pattern.
Tierney continues:

Quote:
Apex Mars denotes an individual who starts off in life ineffectively applying his physical energies, or having difficulty initiating personal matters in a direct and open manner. The method in which he asserts himself may often be in need of correction and alteration. His active efforts may miss their mark for quite some time until he learns to bring his inner drive into clearer focus with his actual capacity to act upon situations with greater organizational intelligence. Otherwise, this individual is prone to plunge into activities without any sense of purposeful direction, resulting in non-productive energy expenditure. He is also likely to have to make adjustments concerning his aggressive instincts. He may exhibit displaced anger, aiming his hostility at inappropriate targets. With Apex Mars, the individual may feel uncomfortable with his sexual tensions, and may not find adequate outlets for their needed release. In general he can be out-of-tune with himself.
So the Mars apex Yod is retrograde. So, this may manifest more acutely internally. You most likely don't project Mars outwardly as much as you do internally. As such, you probably steer away from competition with others... however, you like to compete with, or work on bettering, yourself.

IMO one solution to this Yod is typically an activity which satisfies Mars. So any type of sport that you enjoy, for example. However, since your Mars is retrograde you probably lean towards individual type of sports or activities. Ones that have you competing with yourself more so than others. It could be running, yoga, skiing, bicycling, hiking, etc. Of course doing this type of activity has many benefits to other parts of the scope since the larger aspect patter is "tied" together...

Tierney adds:

Once this Yod is ripe for activation, the individual can find himself centered upon a new life course requiring him to mobilize his vital forces in an externally demanding manner. This new period of his life may manifest somewhat suddenly, perhaps under an acute crisis situation... At this point, he may become keenly aware that he must independently take full charge of his life and demonstrate complete self-sufficiency... He is to one-pointedly focus all attention upon this new path and learn to adapt rapidly. Once he establishes a clearer view of matters here, this individual could become quite energized to work hard and become industriously busy with this enterprising phase... He needs to learn corrective ways of channeling his self-will.
