Intuitive and rational thinking

25 Nov

Lately, I have been thinking/feeling that great disconnect between the logical, rational world of work and my private, intuitive symbolic world.  I wonder why there has to be such a disconnect between thinking and intuition.  They should complement one and other.  Often society looks at the more spiritual, intuitive processes  as less rational and sane than the more scientific thought.  They are both symbol systems; there are generally accepted concepts and symbols.

As the late Dane Rudhyar said in his book The Astrological Houses, “Science has its destructive side as well—witness the pollution and destruction of natural elements, and the depersonalization and monstrous proliferation of human beings in blighted cities.  Of course one can explain away the negative results, and place the blame on human nature.  The value of any symbol is derived from the way it is used, which often means from the way it inevitably will be used by human beings, considering the particular stage of their present evolution.”

Dark Mother/Dreams/body images

20 Apr

Illustrated by Sarah Trumpp

The Dark Mother is a good energy.  We don’t need to associate dark with bad.  The Dark Mother would relate to Ereshkigal from the Sumerian tradition; or Persephone with her trip to the underworld; or Kali from the Indian tradition or Lillith and the Black Madonna in the Judeo-Christian tradition.  She is Queen of the underworld, where souls go between life and death.  She relates to Scorpio and to live, death, sex and transformation. 

Mission: To honor the deep,passionate part of self.  Therapists and others go into the deep part of the unconscious to do healing work.

Body Area affiliated with this Archetype: Reproductive system, large intestine and the immune system alone with Soul Mother and Mystic.

Dream Images: scorpion, snake, eagle, reptiles, were-wolves, mud, muck, feces.  Sometimes this dreams make me cringe when I wake up, but all part of our process of being a living being.

Two of my favorite nephews Brent and Eli are Scorpios.

Thanks to my followers for your encouragement (I found some of the positive comments in the Spam folder, so I have to be sure and check there also).  Just when I think not many people care about this, I find I have to re-evaluate that perception. 

An example of the way “So above, so below” works is: I had a dream this morning of being in a supped up car that was going too fast.  And yup, the moon just went into Aries, which represents speed.  I had a partner that supped up the car, so he represents my animus, or inner male.  He said not to worry about it, rather cavalier.

Lover/Dreams/Body Images

15 Apr

Illustrated by Sarah Trumpp

Mission Statement: To make relationship transcendent

Area of Body affiliated with Archetype: kidneys, back of waist

Dream images: Love birds, relationships, scales (balance)

In the world today, the search for a Soul Mate is like a Spiritual journey.  We all have a little of all the archetypes in us, but some are more prevalent. I don’t have a lot of this archetype.  Some Lover types get a little upset with me because at this point in my life, an intimate relationship isn’t very important.  I have a lot more of the Soul Mother, who is content to spend time alone.  This is what makes us all unique and it is understanding those differences that is key.
