Path. Gate. Pilgrimage. Race. Promenade. These words are featured by the planets today, as evidenced by the Sabian symbols for their locations in the sky (based on traditional astrology).
4 Night. This is today in the tzolkin, the Mayan sacred calendar of the Sun. 4 Night "stabilizes" (4) to enable the infinite imagination of dreams to change the direction or status quo ("Night").
So, today expands the imagination and offers us guidance on where we are going (which direction), bringing light to the proper course.
Here is the data, if you would like to follow:
1 - The Earth is discharging "a path through the woods, rich in autumn coloring." (fruits of labor, explosions of color and variety, cornucopia, The Way)
2 - Mercury is discharging "the gate to the garden of all fulfilled desires." (We will take that any day!).
3 - Mars is discharging "a mountain pilgrimage." (rise in consciousness, the road less traveled - Is it becoming more traveled?)
4 - The Black Moon moves to 21 Capricorn at 9:09 pm ET/1:09 am UT to begin discharging "a relay race." (sharing, teams, speeding forward or speeding a plan forward, letting go of control when it is time)
5 - Neptune just moved to 17 Pisces, "an Easter promenade." (the march of Christ Consciousness)
The themes of clearing/cleaning things out and clearing/cleaning space (as well as giving others clearance and space) comes with the Sun discharging "a woman airing an old bag through a sunny window." Bring air, space, and light. Drop restrictions and limitations. Change up habits and routines.
The "woman airing an old bag..." energetic also involves past lives. This happens as the Moon conjuncts the South Node (the past and past lives) at "during a silent hour, a man receives a new inspiration which may change his life (life path?)."
All of this, just in the nick of time, as we come off of the weekend's volcanic Black Moon-Pluto-Mars conjunction. Epic.
Where is your consciousness going today? Let's follow the path of inspiration and imagination that is being illuminated on this 4 Night.
(Note: I will address my comment on last Thursday and Friday's google doodle in the near future. One hard-core thing at a time!)
(Other data: Chiron has moved to 02 Aries, "a comedian entertaining the group," which is about seeing the lighter side. Venus is discharging further energy to change the status quo with "a woman activist in an emotional speech dramatizing her cause." The Earth will make conjunction with Jupiter / the Sun will make opposition with Jupiter tomorrow, May 8 at 9 pm ET/1 am UT at "a parrot listening and then taking, repeats a conversation he has overheard," which indicates a rapid and expansive spread of information. And a side note: On 4 Night in 2009, Iran reportedly launched its first satellite. So we will see what, if any, activity from that part of the world may re-imprint.)
