ASTROLOGY: April 2024


“One does not become enlightened by imagining figures of light, but by making the darkness conscious.”

—Carl Jung

This month we experience a total solar eclipse in the U.S. The next one won’t be until August 23, 2044. As esoteric scientists we could discuss the unique and perfect distancing of the Sun from the Earth; how the disc of the Moon perfectly fits over the Sun exposing its fiery corona. Were it only a few hundred miles larger or smaller, a few thousand miles closer or further away, this exact phenomenon could not occur. What is the meaning or purpose? Or, we could discuss the idea that the Sun’s rays upon the Earth is a direct current and that at specific and regular intervals the intervention of the Moon interrupting the rays of heat, light and magnetism shifts the direct current to an alternating current, which affects organic life on Earth in a positive and apparently necessary way. Who set this magical dynamic up?

We could also discuss that Paracelsus said that we are suns in miniature. Mankind is a microcosm of this planet, in whom we live and move and have our being. The substance of the stars is wrought in us even as the substance of the stars is wrought in our Sun. As above, so below. We say Earth is a tiny microcosm to the gigantic macrocosm of the heavens and we are a reflection of the heavens, thus we too can eclipse. All of these ideas would make for fascinating topics of discussion.

Instead, in view of the upheaval in the world today and that this eclipse is an important time when we can actively participate in making a difference, we choose to discuss views from back in the time of ancient Egypt when Pharaoh Akhenaton chose to defy the worldview of his time and insist that there was a greater god than all of the animals then being revered. He spoke of a secret behind the disc of the Sun and that it was the true god, the source of prana, of life force. And that within the disc of the Sun is a constant, reverberating sound. It bounces around, ricocheting and creating the sound of the Aum/OM which flows outward from the Sun to Earth; a gift. Sounding the OM has a unifying effect when members of a group join in.

Sound the Aum on April 8 and help unify the world.
