New Moon in Scorpio: Dreams, a Trojan War T-Square, and Peace

Happy New Moon in Scorpio! The November 15, 2020 New Moon occurs at 12:07 a.m. Eastern US time, at 23° 17′ Scorpio. Dane Rudhyar’s Sabian Symbol for Scorpio 24° (always round up for Sabian Symbols) is:

 

PHASE 234 (SCORPIO 24°): AFTER HAVING HEARD AN INSPIRED INDIVIDUAL DELIVER HIS “SERMON ON THE MOUNT,” CROWDS ARE RETURNING HOME.

KEYNOTE: The need to incorporate inspiring experiences and teachings into everyday living.

Today we hear a great deal about “peak experiences” (Maslow). The great problem facing everyone who has had such experiences is how to assimilate what has been felt, seen or heard, and how to let it transform his everyday consciousness and behavior. If this is not done the experience may turn confusing or toxic and perhaps destructive of the integrity of the person.

This fourth symbol as usual suggests to us what has to be done or how to do it. The “return home” from the high mountain, or from any “upper chamber” of the consciousness, may lead to a sense of oppression by the normal realities of existence, or else the soul that has been illuminated may retain enough of that light to transfigure every daily situation. This is the great CHALLENGE TO TRANSFORMATION.

(Laura again) In other words, the message of this monthly reset is one close to my heart (12:34 as I type this right now): Blessed Be, and be the blessing. Find ways to bring inspiration into everyday living.

Whereas last month’s New Moon formed a potent T-square with Pluto/Jupiter/Saturn in Capricorn and Mars in Aries, this month’s New Moon sextiles that cluster in Capricorn. Mars has retrograded back into the 15° Aries range, so it’s not (much) in the mix. The sextile offers harmonious, supportive energy in terms of the New Moon itself. With Scorpio and Pluto involved, we can expect depth and continued revelations, but the Sun/Moon conjunction brings healing rather than extreme tension and destiny level psychic visions like last month’s.

I planned to leave the astro analysis there, except some very insistent, repeated dreams last night forced my attention elsewhere. I’ll begin by sharing the most relevant part of last night’s dream, copied from my dream journal:

 
11/14/2020
 
I had the 1st part of this dream in the wee hours of the morning, and [my Dream Guys] told me to get up. I said, “Come on, Guys, I’m tired. If it’s so important, give it to me again or make me remember it.”
 
Vivid imagery of Randy (neighbor) driving to the T-Square from ____ to ____. I was walking South, just kept walking because I wasn’t really in obvious view since my back was to him. He got out of his truck and climbed on the roof. He stood in a cross position (or T-Square) with arms wide and said very loud, “Laura!”
 
I turned around, and he was staring right at me in that position. I was supposed to notice him, and whenever he said, “Laura!” I would, in real life, slam my jaw together like cymbals, which would kind of wake me up. … It was a really hard slam, many times. I am missing something and supposed to pay attention. Other dream symbols repeated from recent dreams, too. Cymbals/symbols. T-Square is also a repeat from a recent dream.
 
 
The dream continued, and it referenced/repeated symbols from earlier dreams in the past two weeks; however, the T-square is the part relevant to the November 15, 2020 New Moon in Scorpio.
 
I’ve included my 11/8/2020 T-square dream below. I’m NOT including my own possible interpretations on the collective or personal levels. I’m also not including many pages of dreams I’ve had in the past two weeks where bizarrely specific details have come true in the news cycle of the next 4-36 hours. I will just confirm that my usual highly precognitive dreams seem to be on super precognitive overload.
 
In addition, I keep having dreams with red snakes, red worms, red Sharpie’s, red velvet carpeting, and various forms of “sting.”
 
Although I do have some ideas about this long series of dreams, I don’t claim to know the definitive meanings. I also sense there are both personal and collective meanings, some of which dovetail, some of which occur on very different levels. I had not planned to share any of these dreams in any kind of public way, but the repeat dreams and the dramatic emphasis on T-squares, plus slamming my jaw shut like the clang of cymbals really grabbed my attention.
 
Last month’s Libra New Moon occurred in a T-square, but this morning’s research revealed that the chart for tonight’s Scorpio New Moon features a T-square with other planets. I’ll get into those astro aspects after sharing the other recent T-square dream:
 
11/8/2020
“Stinging Nettles on the Porch”
 
There was a pot of stinging nettles on an enclosed porch. It was dry and almost entirely withered, but parts of the plant still able to sting. In order to get into the house, it needed to be harvested. A woman reached in with her bare hands, ready to harvest it. She was not brave but totally unaware of how things worked. I almost couldn’t watch, knowing her bare hands were about to get very painfully stung.
 
Looking at her reaction to the withered nettles, you would think someone left her a giant bouquet of flowers, but it was an ugly plant — totally past its prime. No beauty left in the plant, but also not properly dried to use safely. It was going to hurt her hands. I didn’t want to watch the spectacle once the stingers hit her hands. She would drop the pot and howl.
 
Then, I was with someone else — a man, I think, in the back of a large truck cab — the kind used to haul groceries and other things across the country. There used to be a man and his wife driving this cab, and we felt safe. The man’s wife had left him, and he was driving very recklessly. The man in the back of the cab with me looked at me like, “Are you noticing this?! What can we do?”
 
The driver stopped at an intersection, a T-square, and we all got out. Suddenly the driver was nowhere to be seen. Instead there was a tall, manly woman insisting she was the new driver. She looked a little like _____ (“wind change woman” shamanic name), but it wasn’t her. I recognized her from somewhere before, but she disavowed that party — where I’d seen her.
 
She got in the drivers’ seat and stuck out her calf. She wanted us to feel her very muscular calf, … but I wasn’t going to participate or trust her to drive. I refused to get into the cab with someone I didn’t really know, who just appeared, disavowed the party I’d met her at, and now demanded to drive.
 
I didn’t know what the man I was with would do, but I said I would walk and started walking along the highway.
 
All of this must have flashed into my head as I watched the woman on the porch about to grab the withered nettles with her bare hands, because I saw her reaching for the plant again at the end.
 
….
 
End of that dream.
 
 
As I reread this dream, it jumps out at me that scorpions, the symbol for the Scorpio New Moon, have stingers. Other recent dreams have mentioned a sting or stingers, too, and my sweet Faery Twin Tania Marie recently shared how she got a very strange and dramatic sting on her elbow.
 
The T-square for tonight’s New Moon involves Venus at 22° Libra square Pluto/Jupiter/Pallas Athene at 22-23° Capricorn and opposite/square Eris at 23° Aries.
 
Eris is the goddess of discord. In Greek mythology, she tossed the apple of discord into the wedding celebration of Peleus and Thetis. This apple was to be a prize of beauty, and it triggered a vanity inspired fight among Hera, Aphrodite (Venus) and Athena (Pallas). This fight among the goddesses then triggered the Trojan War.
 
In other words, my dream alerted me to look for a T-square, possibly connected to tonight’s New Moon in Scorpio. Talk about a doozie of a T-square! Not only does it directly involve Eris, Venus/Aphrodite, and Pallas/Athene, but the Pallas/Athene focal point of this T-square gets mega-amplified by Jupiter conjunct Pluto. Jupiter expands whatever he touches, and Pluto rules the Underworld, the Shadow, and the sign of Scorpio. Pluto knows how to sting, and that kind of sting comes from the depths.With Pallas, Jupiter and Pluto in Capricorn, we might expect that sting from the depths to involve rules, traditions, protocols and structures.
 
Of all the goddesses, Pallas Athene is probably most associated with democracy, since Athena was the patron of Athens, the birthplace of democracy. This T-square at the New Moon in Scorpio comes in the midst of the most controversial election in US history. Pluto destroys in order to regenerate, and we can see this energy in the tsunamis of disillusion (or dissolution) of faith in our voting system. For one party, this destruction came in 2016, for the other party in 2020. Meanwhile, the world is watching the country that positions itself as the standard of democracy somehow unable or unwilling to determine who won.
 
In astrology, Pallas Athene is associated with owls, pattern recognition, the arts, and the Midheaven. Venus is goddess of love and relationships, now in Libra, one of her home signs, symbolized by the balanced scales of justice. Eris is sometimes thought of as the Faery who wasn’t invited to Sleeping Beauty’s Christening and then cursed her to prick her finger on the spinning needle. (Another “sting.”) The maxim “Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned” seems a lot like Eris.

In another part of my dream journal, I commented about the nettles, “This is going to hurt a lot of innocent people who know nothing about the properties of stinging nettles. The woman on the porch will drop the pot, and it will shatter. She will be very hurt and angry from the sting. She thought it was a bouquet of flowers, but it’s not.”

In nettles, the antidote to the sting is actually in the nettles themselves, and this seems like good medicine for this Scorpio New Moon with its powerful Trojan War trigger T-square. This is not a time for careless reactivity. Nettles, like Eris and Pluto, demand respect. If you wander through a stand of nettles, you will not forget that sting. It burns from the inside out and keeps burning for a long time, unless you know where to find and how to apply the antidote. If you chew up nettle leaves, the juice in the leaves soothes their sting.

This is another way of saying the Bible verse:

Why do you see the speck that is in your brother’s eye, but do not notice the log that is in your own eye?  Or how can you say to your brother, ‘Let me take the speck out of your eye,’ when there is the log in your own eye?  You hypocrite, first take the log out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to take the speck out of your brother’s eye. ~ Matthew 7:3-5

Please do not underestimate the powerful energies vying for our attentions right now. Healing is possible. Healing is offered. May we each seek for truth, both inside and outside ourselves. May we remember the Mayan idea of Hunab Ku: “You are another myself.” This concept is similar to the yin yang symbol, uniting opposites. I will leave you with a powerful synchronicity I shared with a friend on 11/11/2020:

Last night, David and I were watching ETs Among Us, Part 3. …Then I nodded off for a little while (very unusual for me). All of a sudden it was like something shook me awake, and the video’s showing a crop circle of a yin yang sign, showing it from above, then from ground level, then panning above and showing the yin in the yang. 

This jumped out at me because of almost shaking me awake right at that moment, but also because I had just this morning said this: “They” have a curious sense of humor. Over the course of my life, I’ve occasionally had dreams showing that “this and that are true,” panning back and seeing the yin in the yang, etc. 

Wow, it is now 3:33, and I went to look for an image of the yin yang crop circle. I came upon this video right at 3:33, and noted the time length of 3:33:

Peace!

Oracle Report ~ Wednesday, October 15, 2014

Today’s report from Laura Walker brings more confirmation of this Dickensian energy:

“It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness, it was the epoch of belief, it was the epoch of incredulity, it was the season of Light, it was the season of Darkness, it was the spring of hope, it was the winter of despair, we had everything before us, we had nothing before us, we were all going direct to heaven, we were all going direct the other way – in short, the period was so far like the present period, that some of its noisiest authorities insisted on its being received, for good or for evil, in the superlative degree of comparison only.” (Charles Dickens, A Tale of Two Cities)

I might, instead, call it, “A Tale of Two Realities,” and I’m not surprised to find Eris as a key figure today. The energies feel simultaneously very dense and yet fluid and light, as well. We decide what we do with these energies.

Oracle Report ~ Wednesday, October 15, 2014

 

Third Quarter Moon in Cancer: take personal responsibility

Skill: yield to the feminine energy

Negative Imprint: control, unhappiness, dissatisfaction, hopelessness, suicidal, genocidal, negative rituals

Positive Imprint: mystery, happiness, wisdom, freedom, truth, hope, the good kind of anticipation, alchemy

The Goddess of the Earth meets up with the energy of rebirth today, as the Earth makes conjunction with the planet Eris.  Gaia Sophia, the Goddess Who Is The Earth, blesses us with a release from the old ways and opens a gateway into the new ways.

The archetypal energy of Eris is primarily concerned with freedom from controls and unification of the fragmented or divided parts of ourselves.  She seeks to free our minds and meld us into wholeness.  She helps us integrate our shadow sides, where wells of personal power are bound by fears.  She brings darkness to light.

It is a mystical day in that Sophia’s hand reaches up from the ground to lift us higher.  She takes us above things today.  This enables us to have a better view and a better sight line of the future.  The energy of destiny is still very much present, as is the ability to transcend the past.

The Sabian symbol for the degree of the Earth and Eris today is “a woman in pastel colors carrying a heavy and valuable but veiled load.”  In other words, a Trojan Horse or a great heist.

From the vantage point of the energetics today, we should get a much better idea about the Trojan Horse or great heist that is being enacted upon humanity.  Is what is hidden inside a package that looks like “abandoned borders” and “the brink of possible viral pandemic” a monstrous new system of control via global economics and banking?  This may seem US-specific, but the plan requires that the US must fall.  This will not happen no matter how far things break down, but the plan is underway.  I will discuss this more in a new audio in the next few days.  For today, watch the forward movement and see inside the Trojan Horse.

Eris energy also has a way of bringing truth to those who need it most but can hear it least.  If a compulsion to say something comes over you, try to interrupt the circuit and give it some thought first.  This is very difficult to do because Eris energy cannot be contained, but we can moderate the force of the “apples of discord” that we lob.  (Eris’ Apple of Discord is what launched the Trojan War in the first place!)  Mars, Eris’ fiery twin brother, is in trine, adding even more impulsivity.  Remember also that Mercury is retrograde, which naturally leans toward miscommunication.  A tip: commanding is better than demanding.

Eris energy brings revelations and awakenings of hidden talents.  I’ve talked about this a few times this month, but the energy for this is very strong today, so if a hidden part of you that seeks freedom or expression has not revealed itself to you yet, today is another day.  Focus on your HAPPINESS and it will find its way up.

Venus will also be discharging the energy of Eris, bringing the element of relationships into focus.  Venus and Eris are sisters and symbolize the unification of the light and dark parts of ourselves.  This day is heavily laden with energy to unify ourselves – to bring back the parts that linger in shadow in alien lands.  Turn your back on whatever haunts you or whatever is keeping you lost or hidden.  When we do this, we disempower the fear.  Those haunted, lost, and hidden parts of ourselves can then come right back to us.

Be aware that whenever Eris energy is involved, there are usually two sides to things.  Two sides emerge.  Just like a Trojan Horse seems to be one thing but turns out to be another.  So don’t judge things too fast.  Also keep in mind that Eris energy is Black Moon energy – they are the same thing.  So people will be projecting their own fears onto others through nagging, outbursts, conflict, and attempts to emotionally manipulate.  See through it.

Sophia lifts us up today.  Her touch feels like home.  Ultimately, the Eris energy is the Mother Energy.  It nurtures us, but it also teaches us.  We learn best in environments where we are comfortable.  Let go of the controls today and let her lift you to another place.  The Sun will rise again tomorrow, but in a different place and space.  Today, it’s Sophia and Eris’ place and space, and we yield.

Thank you for supporting the Oracle Report. Blessings to all!

Laura Walker (Oracle Report) ~ The Brighter Side of Eris

This video presents Laura Walker (author of http://oraclereport.com ) giving an introduction/additional insights into her article that I posted yesterday. She talks about the powerful seeding and intention potential of the Eris archetypal energy — an energy that also offers positive and benevolent outcomes. This talk goes right along with my intro to the Oracle Report article, “Mars, Eris and Katy Perry, or How the Illuminati are Poised to Strike and Why They Will Fail (Part 1).” I keep reminding people: “Where there is fear, there is power.” Instead of freaking out and just accepting the negative co-opting of such energies, we can learn how to maximize them for the Highest Good of All.

As I responded to a comment on that article regarding a possible connection between the name Hecate and Katy:

Names and goddess traditions always interest me, because, of course, history comes to us primarily from the victors/controllers. I don’t work with Hecate, but some research indicates that originally she was considered a very powerful and ***benevolent triple goddess. In Celtic mythology, the Morrigan would be the closest, though not identical personage — goddess of sovereignty and the land. One can certainly imagine why conquerors would want to demonize a homeland’s goddess of sovereignty and the land!

Given the extreme patriarchal nature of Christianity, as well as the conquests of the “Holy” Roman Empire, I take descriptions of “the most evil” goddesses with a grain of salt. Fears of retribution or of eternal damnation acted (and still act) as effective guardians to the Mysteries. I don’t in any way condone practicing black magic — imposing control over another’s free will for personal gain, murder, etc. — however, the big, bad, scariest goddesses always interest me in that those writing history were those who clearly derived advantages from separating people from long held faiths and relationships with powerful images/motifs/goddesses. “Where there is fear, there is power” usually does hold true. What one chooses to do with such power makes a big difference.

IMHO, the reason so many of these “Dark” goddesses continue to be associated with black magic is because certain controllers have run smear campaigns in order to monopolize those energies. Thus, they HAVE BECOME associated with black magic, but that wasn’t their original role or intent. As with the spirit of money, the co-opted suffer as well as those deprived of the purer intents. Loving reclamation of our Shadows both heals and purifies.

Laura Walker explains how and why trying to control this Eris energy will backfire on the would-be controllers. “The innate goodness in humanity rises above this and sees through it.”
