Spring and the Undoing of the Inertia of Pain
Thanks to all those who participated in the Esalen Kabbalah retreat. It was a great success and we are doing another one this August 28-30!

Happy Earth Day!
How appropriate that Earth Day is celebrated always in Taurus, the sign of Mother Nature.

On April 20th we crossed over into the realm of Taurus and will walk in their fertile land of milk and honey until May 21st. Examining what the archetype of Taurus can help us understand what we need to focus on for the next month.
  
Taurian Queendom of Pleasure…
What is special about Taurus? What is their creed, core and essence that not only differentiates them from their brothers and sisters, but also explains the reason for their existence?

The popular and enduring Taurian stereotype is that they are stubborn. What do you expect from a fixed (modality) earth (element) sign? That’s their job. As a fixed sign, their task is to serve as a support-beam. As the structural constituent of the zodiac, Taurus is capable of withstanding heavy load primarily by resisting bending. You cannot move it, and to be honest, you shouldn’t, since true to its name, it supports the roof, and in the case of the zodiac edifice, it supports the heavy load of the heavens.
In Kabbalah, Taurus is one of the four Chayot, (חַיּוֹת) creatures; guardians of the Throne of God. And in Rafael’s masterpiece “Ezekiel’s Vision” they support the chariot of God, alongside Leo the Lion.

Taurus Axiom
Taurus retains the magic of transforming talents and values into wealth and prosperity. Their formula is:

Talent + Self Worth = Money.

 In the next thirty days, we all will be learning and drilling this valuable lesson. Someone around you, something in your environment, perchance a dream, or a book, a work of art, will inspire you to reconnect to talents you might have forgotten about. These talents, strengthened by an investment of faith and time metamorphose into money and abundance. The month of the bull presents the prospect of transforming inner wealth into outer wealth. No wonder the Tarot card 6 of disk is called Success and is associated with Taurus.

Matadors and Cowboys
In my early twenties, I worked as a cowboy in a Kibbutz located at the Golan Heights. Since our lands wee by the border, they were filled with old Syrian mines. Our job was to fence those mines, making sure cows and their calf don’t wonder inside those areas and find an untimley death left over by a human war (the sign before Tarurus is Aries, ruled by Mars). But every so often we had to herd them from one grazing field to another, desrupting the cow’s favorite static motion which is not moving. It takes a cowboy mounted on a big mare or a matador waving a red cape to instigate movement among the Taurus. The unfortunate side effect of the techinques listed above is that the bull’s movemnet usually ends up being an all-or-nothing occurrence. Their tendency is not to just move a bit, but to charge forward at you, accelrarting from zero to 30 mph in no time. Eventually, I realized that with Taurus (Minotaurs or humans) it is better to lure them into change and movement using one of the five senses : touch, taste, smell, sight, and hearing. It needs to be pleasurable. It is the carrot they favor, so give it to them.

This month try the carrot approach not only with yourself but the people or pets around you. The last thirty days governed by Aries were more stick than carrot style, so let’s try something different in the next four weeks.


Charging Bull, New York City
Money Money Money
The ancient association of Taurus, the bull, with money and prosperity was made popular when the term “Bull Market” was coined (18th century) to describe a rising tendency in the stock market. The bull- market, as opposed to the bear-market, indicates optimism, money flowing, and people’s talents are being rewarded with cash. The bull was chosen as a symbol for the rising market because of the way it attacks its opponents. It uses it horns and head to thrust the helpless victim upward while the bear uses its paws in a downward motion. Above you can see the famous Raging Bull sculpture by Arturo Di Modica, located in Wall Street, New York, which he installed without permission and paid for its creation out of his own pocket. He had to have the self-worth to invest in his talents $360,000, which is the amount used in the creation of the 3.2 tons bronze sculpture. Bronze is made of about 88% copper (planet of Venus ruler of Taurus) and 12% tin (ruled by Jupiter whose Tarot card is called Fortune). By the way, it is up for sale since 2004, however, there is a catch. If you buy it, you have to leave it where it is. As I said, bulls do not like to move once they found their place.
Arturo Di Modica created another version of the Raging Bull, nicknamed the Bund Bull, which he placed in Shanghai in 2010. The Bund Bull was unveiled, as it should, on May 15th, during the sign Taurus. This raging bull however looks younger and more aggressive, equipped with a menacing tail.

Bund Bull
 
Since Taurus rules art, music, and design, this is a great month to explore your creative side. Anything goes. Form using your smart phone to capture nature’s majesty to taking a long earned massage, singing in the shower (unless you are in southern California so use short songs), planting, painting, or conceiving an idea for a new project.    

Back to the Beginning…
So what is so special about Taurus?

They are the true earthlings. They are Mother Nature’s favorites. Siddhartha, a Taurus, sat for seven days and nights under a Bodhi Tree (only a Taurus can be that fixed). On the full moon in May during Taurus, he asked Mother Nature to speak on his behalf. He was confronting the last of Mara’s temptations. Siddhartha, like a true Taurus, was seeking in his deep meditation to reach the immovable point. As a fixed earth sign, he wanted to be at one with the axis of the universe. He knew that there he will find the reason and solution for human suffering. But the third temptation, called “Duty” was the hardest of them all. Mara informed him that his aging father needs him by his side to help govern the kingdom. There is no time for selfish spiritual retreats when country calls. Right before he was about to surrender to the temptation, Mother Nature opened he mouth and testified that Siddhartha is no more. She said “awaken, sitting before you, is nothing but pure light. And light has no other duty besides shining.”
Taurus have a special relation to the five senses. That is their link, their bloodline to Mother Nature. They can see the value in objects and talents in people.

Dedicate the next month to your own awakening by finding what centers you. Joseph Campbell called it “your bliss.” Pay extra attention to Buddha’s date of birth, enlightenment anniversary as well as day of death which all happened on the full moon in May. This year, it will take place May 3rd.  That day you will get your own yearly dose of Enlightenment. Maybe an aha moment, or a feeling of awakening, maybe like the Buddha you will be able to find what is the source of your suffering and find four noble truths that can help you deal with it. 

So pamper yourself, learn to enjoy what the earth offers, and find how to manifest the Taurian Axiom:
Talent + Self Worth = Prosperity
Long Live the Queen of Taurus

Spring and the Undoing of the Inertia of Pain
A FEW MORE SLOTS AVAILABLE FOR THE SPRING KABBALAH WEEKEND RETREAT AT ESALEN

Over the years, I found two great definitions for mythology. The first was crafted by the man I call my rabbi, the late Joseph Campbell, who said, “Mythology is what we call other people’s religion.” The second – I’m not sure who wrote it, but he or she was ingenious – said, “Mythology are true stories that never happened.” The latter definition asserts that there is a kernel of truth in every mythology and therefore can withstand the challenge of space and time, reverberating throughout the ages, nurturing our souls lifetime after lifetime.



This weekend was a powerful story generator. A great deal of synchronicities and events converged to propel our life narrative forward. On Friday, Jews around the world retold the mythology of Exodus, the same story Jesus recited before he was apprehended by the Roman authorities. On Saturday, a powerful total lunar eclipse in Libra made us look deep into the axis of “I versus Thou” in our lives, pitting “my needs” against “our wants,” as trying to find a compromise. And then came Easter Sunday, the resurrection of the goddess Eostre, with her bunnies and painted eggs. Again, as the definitions above explained, these stories of slaves liberated, sons of God resurrected, and goddesses whose feet melt the winter snow, are all true even though they lack archaeological evidence.

Spring’s mythology is associated with the premises of these worldwide stories and can be summarized by a few tags – liberation, resurrection, freedom, life, autonomy, call-to-action, and free-will. While winter represents fate, spring brings choice. Our will is free to choose our next course of action.

One of the ways I believe astrology helps people is by presenting them with hope. Time, which astrologers throughout the ages attempted to fold into meaningful cycles, can provide a great deal of help to the hapless. I see it again and again when I chart people’s life. Yes, they might have Saturn in the house of death that can manifest as a parting of a parent or a friend, but even those seasons of grief are bound by time and they too pass-over. Astrology is based on the ancient premise that “to everything there is a season under the heaven.”  (Ecclesiastes 3:1)



What I found myself repeatedly saying to my clients is that they should be careful not to fall in the trap of what I call the “inertia of pain.” Inertia, in classical physics, is the tendency of bodies to preserve its current state. It comes from the Latin root iners, best translated as “idle.” As above so below, and we too, having bodies, tend to think that our current state would last forever. Therefore, if we are experiencing “the winter of our discontent,” we might not see that spring had arrived, thus losing ourselves in the inertia of pain, forcing the cold to last longer. Lord Buddha concurs and said that “Everything is impermanent.” He, too, like the biblical author (both part of what is called the Axial Age circa 7-5 century BCE), could see that time, moods, perceptions and life itself flows in a cyclical manner. That is why astrology has been such a powerful tool for so many cultures around the world. It tries to map these changes, helping us take things a little bit less personal. Are you sad? No worries, soon you will be happy. Are you in joy? Don’t get attached, you might catch a winter blues soon.

As we move into spring, the time has come to slow the inertia of pain and to reinforce the signs of hope, good fortune, opportunity and success that the season bestows upon us. Spring is about stretching our organs, being physically active, juicing green (associated with the Fool) fruits and vegetables, and connecting to Aries, the sign of “Call to Action.”
And for our friends in the Southern Hemisphere, do not be saddened. You get the best of both worlds. You too celebrate the spring festivities of Easter and Passover, yet you do it in your fall, mitigating some of the darker aspects of that season.  Then, six months later, you get your spring. What a treat! Two springs in one year, one mythological and the other seasonal.



Happy spring into action!

March 20th Total Solar Eclipse in Pisces
March 20th is an eclipsed day. We will be surfing a New Moon under Pisces. Dolphins in pairs swim while crossing each other's path in perfect harmony, leaving a wake patterns resembling the yin-yang symbol. The dolphins whistle and click to activate their echolocation systems. The dolphins can tell where they are by listening...

The new moon always reminds me of Istanbul with her milliard mosques adorned with crescent moons on top of pregnant domes and erect towers.
 


And from these towers, the Call to Prayer, five times a day according to the passage of the chariot of the Sun, summoning the neighbors, reminding them to listen. 

Pisces, the sign of mysticism, dance and poetry, always conjures in my mind's eye the image of Rumi and his whirling dervishes. Last year, I had the fortune of witnessing the festivities in honor of Mevlana Rumi in Konya, where the celebration of Sema takes place. Sema, which means "listen" in Persian, Arabic and Hebrew, is such an appropriate name for a ceremony that involves no words but only music and silent movement. How synchronistic that the peoples in most need of listening to each other to resolve much of the world's problems happen to share the same word for hearing: Israelis, Arabs, Turks and Iranians. 

The most powerful prayer in Hebrew, a magical spell of unity, was given by Moses to the Ancient Hebrews to spread around the world: Shma (listen) God is One. 



Why listen and not look? 
In Exodus 24:7, Moses speaks to the people on the slopes of Mount Sinai and lays out the covenant between God and Israel. Upon hearing the contract, to seal the deal the people collectively respond: "We will obey and we will listen." Why listen? Why Shema? Why Sema? And why when the prophets communicated with God they say they HEAR, bat-kol, Hebrew for "daughter of sound." What is it about the auditory sense rather than the visual, that connects us to the one?
  וַיִּקַּח סֵפֶר הַבְּרִית, וַיִּקְרָא בְּאָזְנֵי הָעָם; וַיֹּאמְרוּ, כֹּל אֲשֶׁר-דִּבֶּר יְהוָה נַעֲשֶׂה וְנִשְׁמָע.  And he took the book of the covenant, and read in the hearing of the people; and they said: 'All that the LORD hath spoken will we hear, and obey.'


First and foremost, our eyes can deceive us. Nothing personal, it's in their nature. From optical illusions to falling in love with people's appearances, our eyes gets us into trouble. In addition, we have two blind spots horizontally and another two vertically, which means we can only see half of creation. On the other hand, our ears afford us the ability to hear things we cannot see. Close your eyes for a second. You will be able to hear what is above, below, to the sides. Even what is happening 20 stories down on the street or if an airplane passes thousands of meters above. Our ears can even record sounds coming from inside of us. And while we cannot see our lover's heart, we can surely hear it. 

Consider the following dialogue:
Jane: So will you come with me to my sister's engagement party?
John: Hmmm, we'll see.
Jane: OK, I get it, you are not coming. 
John: I didn't say that. Let's see what happens.
Jane: Come on! I need you there. If this guy ends up also being a jerk, we will have to deal with him for the rest of our lives. 
John: So you want me to be the one to tell your sister she should not get married?
Jane: She listens to you. John, Please!!! 
John: OK, Ok! I hear you. I'll come.

John started off with an obvious negative attitude toward attending Jane’s sister's party. He expressed it subtly by using the words "I'll see," thus injecting a certain degree of skepticism about him going with Jane.  However, at the end, after he is convinced, he declares "I hear you," which demonstrates he will come. As the Ancient Hebrews declared: "We obey and listen." In modern Hebrew as well, hearing is more definite than seeing; listening stronger than watching. We say נראה (see or look) when we are less certain, leaving the option of "bailing out," but as we saw above, when we need to seal a pact with God, we use נשמע (hear or listen). If you speak any other language and it is the same in your native tongue, please email me.

Shhhh...listening to the Solar eclipse on March 20th
Since an eclipse, by default, blocks either the light of the Sun or the Moon, it is a time when seeing is more difficult and therefore, a perfect period to focus on listening. Pisces is the sign of dreams, so start paying attention to your nightly narratives from now until the 22nd. You can use the Kabbalistic technique of "Dream Quest." Find an aspect of your life that needs more clarity, and before you go to sleep meditate on that issue, asking your dreams for guidance. Make sure to write your dreams when you wake up, and if you don't remember, try to record your feelings when you wake up. 

 


What to do:
Since a solar eclipse is always a new moon, it represents a new beginning. Considering that it takes place a few hours before the Spring Equinox, it will be colored by strong red frequencies of Aries that begins a few hours after the eclipse. The Spring Equinox, true to its name, helps us spring into action. Given this:
  • Dance, meditate, take a yoga class, start a martial art or a training regimen.
  • Spend time in water, a bath with sea-salt, swim, surf, ski, or hike by a water source.
  • Take it easy, don't overbook your schedule from the 19th to the 21st of March.
  • If you want to get pregnant, the eclipse is a good time to meditate with your future child's souls and ask him/her to be reborn.
  • Follow the white rabbit of synchronicities! They abound during any eclipse, but they come gushing down during Pisces lunation.
  • Watch and write your dreams.

Since on April 4th we have the lunar eclipse in Libra (Passover Night), some of the stories instigated by the 20th of March eclipse will become manifest or clearer by then. The finale of the story will happen in September 2015 (13th and 27th), when the opposing eclipses take place.

Have a wonderful spring equinox and solar total eclipse, and may you surf the mighty waves effortlessly and with lots of powerful insights...

Happy Spring!
