Studies of the 9th and 30th harmonic charts.
No, I said.
You will, she replied. In time. I am inwardly advised that I have not lived before, and will not live again. In gestalt, which is the term I use to describe a community of "voices", transpersonal agencies who may well have lived lives as I understand the term, among whom I have evolved as representative of the common good, focused on harmony and healing in the community, on the concept of unicity in diversity under aegis of an immanent divinity, with whom I am both inseparable and able to communicate. I am in school, a "corporeal soul". Kate Skinner has a beautiful post on the nature of Po The Corporeal Soul
The Po is the spirit of the metal element – most often referred to as the Corporeal Soul – representing our primal urges or animal instinct.There is no question that 'metal' dominates in me, and that theme is what I might expect to see in any assessment of divisional charts. Note that in other schemata of the five elements, metal corresponds to ether (space, void), which I associate with Vairocana and "Turning the Wheel of Dharma" (teaching), overcoming ignorance. The themes I'm about to outline do indeed go to that effort, usually through building up and breaking down, death and rebirth; yet they're also about an evolution beyond, the experience of inner relationship on the basis of which problems are identified and worked through, a removal of blockages, constructs and paradigms.
The function of the Po is to receive what is of essential worth, and to let go of ideals and experiences that no longer serve us. Metal imparts minerals to the earth, plants, and all beings. It is strong yet malleable; capable of being remolded. If it is too rigid, however, it can be shattered. This imagery of metal can be applied to the individual – is their perception of reality fixed and unchanging? Are they open to new experiences, able to let go of the past and move forward according to their life experiences? The organs of the metal element – the lungs and large intestine – form a connection between the internal and external world. With the lungs we breathe in life's experiences, retaining what nourishes us, and with the large intestine we understand the letting go, discharging what no longer serves us, letting go of past experiences and ideals that are no longer of use to us on our journey. The Po is the spirit in Taoist philosophy that upon death leaves the body and returns to the earth, becoming the fertiliser that encourages new growth.
In this sense I have lived many lives, and I may live many more. But the achievement I seek is not to be found in those worldly accomplishments against which I have often judged and found myself lacking. My psychospiritual experience, my core reality makes evident the fact that I have never been interested in actively pursuing such externals. So, to the summary...
- D-9 Navamsa. Neptune and Moon. There is a close relationship between Neptune and Moon (listening, empathy, compassion) in all of these charts, often via quintile or conjunction. Neptune is focal handle in the bucket formation in Navamsa, and is biquintile Moon, quadronovile Vertex, Mars and Uranus, as well as triseptile Mercury. Regarding this bucket, Saturn serves as stabilizer note the tarot associations of Hermit and World; there are numerous challenges thereto, necessitating engagement and work-through.
- Navamsa. Chara Atmakaraka → Mars in Sagittarius: "Uses the philosophical, humanistic, and religious knowledge for pioneering pursuit of new conquests and experiences."2
- D-30 Trimsamsa. Golden rectangle engages Neptune/Moon, Mars, Uranus, and Jupiter.
- Pluto YOD Trimsamsa shows a strong "finger of fate" focusing Jupiter and Uranus through Pluto in Leo, 8th. Pluto also trines Venus, engages the grand trine including Ascendant/Chiron and Mercury, Houses 1, 4 and 9.
- Neptune/Moon trines Jupiter and Sun, but also opposes Uranus and squares Venus in a T-square, Cap/Ari/Can, Houses 1, 4 and 7: psychological issues, self-representation vs. relationship/partnership.
Special Houses in Trimsamsa:3
4th house: House of Cure → Venus, Aries (detriment);
12th house: Hospitals or the place of cure → Sun/Eris/Lilith, Sagittarius.
- Minor grand trine: Neptune/Moon to Sun to Mars engages annihilation, reformulation, reconstruction dynamic, Can/Sag/Vir, Houses 12, 8, 9 (→ Mercury grand trine) and 11 (revaluation).
- Note complete absence of Air element in Trisamsa. Air and Earth are limited in Rasi (see below), but elements are better balanced in D-10, D-27, and D-60.
- D-10 Dasamsa. Grand trine includes Mercury/Vesta (Cap, 3rd), Pof (Vir, 11th), and Pluto in the 7th, Taurus (detriment) → network, relationships, partnerships :: internal. Kite formation (Jupiter apex, Mercury/Vesta, MC/Ceres, Mars (Chara Atmakaraka focus) in 7th House, Taurus/Gemini → internalized communal/nurturing values find practical, broad external expression. Same theme becomes primary focus in golden rectangle, Aqu/Ari/Leo/Lib, Houses 4, 6, 10, 12, with (Sun)Saturn, Juno, Vesta/Vx/Great Attractor, and Rahu/Ketu/Eris → recovery, identity stabilization and nurturance, ego-Self relation, moksha. Neptune/Moon conjunct, sextile Uranus and trine Pluto → creative partnership, intrapsychic...
- D-27 Nakshatramsa. Neptune/Moon quintile, kite formation focused on Moon, Taurus 3rd, where Moon forms leg of YOD focused on PoF, Sagittarius 10th, inconjunct Ketu/Great Attractor, Cancer 5th: Pursuing personal interests as inwardly experienced and directed. Grand trine: Neptune, Uranus/Vx/Mars, Lilith: Aqu/Gem/Lib, Houses 12, 4, 8 → Inwardly driven innovative work on psychological foundations, common rights, equanimity, freedom of expression.
- Kite formation: Focused on Moon, Tau 9th House MC Sco apex, Chiron (Cap, 11th) and Saturn/Pluto (Vir, 7th, Hermit/World) wings: Must *feel* right, have pragmatic impact (High Priestess). Seventh and 8th Houses (Vir/Lib) are foci of square to 4th/5th (Gem/Can), showing challenges to core identity relative to partnerships apprehended as internal "voices", transpersonal, Vx to Saturn/Pluto, Vesta/Ceres/Pallas → continuous deconstruction/reconstruction. Sesquisquare (135) YOD with square base MC is focus, to Ascendant square Vx/Mars to MC → continuous challenge to self-representation bears on outward activities, calling, vocation (Scorpio 9th, self-mastery).
- D-60 Shashtyamsa. Note the two T-squares, wings originating from Uranus (Sco, 2nd) and Pluto (Cap, 4th); Pluto is apex of kite formation focused on Juno (Can, 10th), with Jupiter (Pis, 6th) and Uranus (Sco, 2nd) as wings; achievement focus is nurturance, fostering adaptive application of personal resources and healing, promotion of health and well-being through psychological transformation. There is also a T-square fulcrum also at Neptune/Moon, but not highlighted, going to MC/Ceres and Sun/Great Attractor → creative expression of principals in gestalt. Rahu/Ketu/Saturn/Pallas hold the 9th (Gem), responding to conundrums irrupting from the Galactic Center and internalized in Chiron/Ascendant.
