“Offer to The Fire that Which Needs to Burn…”
“Offer to The Fire that Which Needs to Burn…” Agni Kunda is the “fire of offering” in Sanskrit. We are in the fire yogis and our entire lives, social structures, and old paradigms are being offered up to transform. It is a time of purifying and chaos. Shiva is the archetype of Destruction and Creation in Yoga. Both acts are symbolized as a distinct cosmic dance. When it is the dance of destruction and fire, it is called the Rudra Tandava- the desolation of the old. And when it is creation it is the Ananda Tandava. We can feel each time Shiva’s foot comes down in the dance and reverberates across the earth during this time of the Coronavirus. This is real.
This New Moon on Tuesday, Mar 24 is in Aries~ the 1st if the fire signs – renewal, rebirth, spring, assertion, and action. However, the moon is locked into a Karmic Crucible as she squares her own Nodes. The Nodes of the moon are the axis of evolution for the planet, and for you as an individual. When any planet squares the nodes, it shows that we are at a crossroads in our evolution. This square is already a heightened energy, and it is further intensified by the moon being joined by 4 other astrological bodies.
Who are these figures at the crossroads of destiny? The Sun: Our Persona and Heart Energy. The Moon: Our Inner Self and Emotions. Chiron: The Wounded Healer. Lilith: The Sacred Feminine that has been Oppressed. Eris: The Goddess of Discord- Kali in Yoga. All listed are in Aries and connect to Mars- our Masculine/Yang self, how we use our power, and how we know ourselves. This is the Agni Kunda and the Rudra Tandava-The Fire of Offering and the Dance of Destruction/Creation. It is wise to align with the karmic axis of the Moon’s nodes and purify the past and move towards the new.
So what is the karmic axis that these 5 planetary mystics are wanting to evolve with? The South Node of the Moon in Capricorn is what needs to be purified and healed form the past. Capricorn energy is Government, Financial Systems, Law & Order, Education Systems, Health Care Systems, and the Old Paradigm of Oppression. The North Node in Cancer is where we are being guided to evolve towards. Cancer energy is personal, family, loving, caring, compassionate, intuitive and aligned with Mother Nature.
By the way, the Nodes were at the exact same position that they are now 18.5years ago on Sep 11, 2001. This is a karmic return to that time, and its asking, “what have you learned as a humanity? Have you learned that we are all one and connect to the web of life? Or have you not…” Either way, the force of evolution and karma will follow that axis.
All of this is hinging on the Aries line-up to tip the scales towards the Life Affirming North Node in Cancer and the Death throes of the Karmic South Node in Capricorn. Aries is the Fire- Agni Kunda. “Offer to the fire that which needs to burn.” As we do this, remember as well the gentler side of Aries that calls in the flowers of spring, and raises the delicate-yet resilient- crocus from the earth. We need strength and kindness now.
We have the support of Mother Venus at this time- Mother Mary Energy- compassion, love and caring. Venus will be making 3 supportive trines to Jupiter, Pluto and Saturn between March 28 and April 4. Jupiter and Venus together are faith in the process and trusting that Mother Earth can heal with us if we align with her. Venus and Pluto together is Love supporting the power of Evolution/Transformation. Venus and Saturn are Compassion and the Elder providing guidance and instruction.
On March 30, Mars enters the new sign of Aquarius and Mercury ends it’s shadow phase. For Mars, that means entering the sign of Technology, The Internet, and Social Progress. There will likely be an expansion and evolution of how we use the internet and understand our social web. For Mercury, our communication and thinking are exiting the ground covered during Retrograde and we are entering into new territory. This will bring in more of the Agni Kunda when Mercury goes into Aries a week or so later. Communication will renew, transform and be in the purification fire.
Finally, Jupiter conjoins Pluto on Apr 5. This is another one of those energies that Astrologers have been anticipating and will reverberate throughout 2020 and beyond. It’s been 13 years since they were last together in 2007. Jupiter and Pluto together are faith in our practice, intuition and our Soul Power. We are really being tested and sent on an inward journey to recover our spiritual heritage of inner knowing. This is what we have bee practicing for all along. The Super Full Moon will complete our cycle on Apr 7 with a Mars/Uranus Square…things are going to get weird but remember the Lakota Prayer: Mitakuye Oyasin. All are my Relations.
