So, About this concordance thing...

On saturday November 8th 2003 gregorian we will have the following events

Slam bam thank you Ma'am!

 

NOVEMBER 8th 2003 -- HARMONIC CONCORDANCE
On August 28, 1998, John Mirehiel (pronounced Ma-RAY-he-el), astrologer, first identified a still-to-come moment of great Astrological potential. While he was surfing the future, using a sophisticated software program that displayed planetary positions around a horoscope wheel, his attention was drawn to the patterns forming in early November of 2003.
As he watched the shifting planets, they began to align themselves in a planetary pattern known to astrologers as The Grand Sextile, (star tetrahedron ) thought to be highly beneficial when it appears in the chart of an individual . In this instance, however, the horoscope Mirehiel was seeing was not one for an individual, but rather it was a global one, for Mother Earth herself. It was a unique astrological chart, representing a moment in time during which we can change the world we see, and ourselves, if we so choose. It has been called the Harmonic Concordance of 2003.The context in which the Harmonic Concordance information is presented happens to arrive in the language of western, geocentric, tropical astrology. The chart for that moment is rife with astrological details encoded in this specific date. The metaphors to which those details refer describe a moment in which a great shift in conscious awareness may well take place. It is very interesting to note, however, that this year (2003) and this day (November 8th or 9th depending on where you are located in relation to the International Date Line), if not this exact clock moment, have clearly been anticipated within the framework of other traditions as well.
The Shifting World of 2003 In the years since the Harmonic Convergence of 1987, José Argüelles and his wife, Lloydine, have been campaigning for a calendar reform that would place us on a Thirteen-Moon Calendar, to complete the necessary realignment of humanity to the cycles naturally experienced by the Earth. They believe that this is necessary if we are to avoid crashing into "the wall" of the 2012 necrosphere. Interestingly, they tell me that on November 8, 2003, we will have exactly one galactic spin cycle left (as reckoned in the Mayan Calendar) to complete the realignment
of humanity to the cycles naturally experienced by Mother Earth. But noted Psychic Silvia Browne has said the 2012 date itself is erroneous; that confusion arising over western calendar systems has led to our belief that 2012 represents the last noted year of the Mayan Great Calendar when, according to her guides, 2003 is the correct corresponding Gregorian year. Yet another commentator, posting on the "Troubled Times" website, says that the "significant event" calendar date line, supposedly encoded into the architecture of the Great Pyramid, terminates abruptly at the end of the year 2003. Even some Christian ministers claim that the prophecies of Daniel predict that the "End Times" will arrive in 2003.
Peruvian shamans of the Q'ero line (a lineage shared by both the Inca and the Apaches), descendants of those who fled into the high Andes to escape the Spanish conquistadors, have told shaman-psychologist Dr. Alberto Villoldo about the occurrence of an important event in the late fall of 2003. At that time, which they say will mark the end of the current, and final, "Pachakuti" (a period of cleansing, when everything is turned upside down), it is said that a tear, or hole in the fabric of time will appear, and that those who have prepared for it will be able to walk through it and into their luminous bodies.
Another author, "time researcher" Preston Nichols, who has studied time and consciousness as they are shaped by frequencies and magnetic fields, has pinpointed 2003 as the significant year at the other end of the "time wormhole" that was first opened by the Philadelphia Experiment in 1943. And Starr Fuentes, master healer and teacher in the "curandera" tradition, who works with similar metaphors of frequencies as the causal factors behind physical manifestation, says that she was alerted to the importance of November 8, 2003, by her own teacher in 1964. The affirmations and confirmations of the importance of this time by these and other well-known seers, mystics, psychics, and researchers, as well as those of many private individuals, clearly indicate the power of the Harmonic Concordance Moment to stand at the hub of a wide variety of converging timelines. Some Astrological Factors In linear time, the Harmonic Concordance Moment of November 8-9, 2003,is presently a future astronomical event that will occur at the precise moment when a Total Lunar Eclipse completes an astrologically beneficial configuration known as the Grand Sextile. Like other previously announced, spiritually significant times (most notably the Harmonic Convergence mentioned above), the Harmonic Concordance of 2003 will pull a great many people into a prayerful alignment, at one moment, with a focused intent of a higher spiritual purpose. In this case, the larger purpose is the Ascension of Mother Earth and her awakened inhabitants. I have been a practicing astrologer and spiritual seeker for more than 30 years. As the discoverer of the chart, I have identified many individual astrological details that are in play at the moment of the Concordance Eclipse. My experience tells me that those factors, when taken all together, confirm a promise of hope, joy, unity, and transformation. Nor am I alone in this astrological assessment of the Harmonic Concordance chart. Astrologers of all rank, from the world famous to novice, have seen, been inspired by, written of, and spoken about its enormous potential. The spiritually inclined, in particular, are invariably impressed by the power and purpose expressed in the chart.
The Spiritual Meaning
Although this astrological chart is set for our future, the ultimate perfection of that ascended world exists right now. Many metaphysical and spiritual traditions have long told us that Time is the great illusion; that, in fact, all time "happens" in the simultaneous NOW. If that is so, then this "future" moment of ultimate balance, power, and peace is available to us in the present. As such, it behooves us to claim that moment now. If we can accept the idea that that perfect world is co-existent with the somewhat different exterior "reality" that most of us see, then we must also accept the possibility that we can change that exterior projection. To acknowledge that we are the ones responsible for the appearance of that projection means that we must begin to understand what immense and limitless creative beings we are. Unfortunately, we often have trouble accepting that thought, even though the avatars and exemplars throughout the ages have told us this is so.
One major block to this realization lies in our persistent belief in solid space and linear time. However, if you can conceive of how it might feel to live as an Ascended Master in an Ascended World, you can step through a hole in time, anytime, and bring that existence back into your daily experience, right then and there, here and now.
The Harmonic Concordance chart portrays a multi-dimensional mandala in sacred geometry, offering a variety of these reminders through symbols that are significant in many different belief systems. It contains, for example, a two-dimensional representation of the 8-pointed star that is called the Merkaba, the symbol that represents the Light Body form as seen by those who can perceive on this level. Practitioners of the Merkaba meditation essentially visualize rolling their light bodies through time, from one present moment into the next. This exercise allows them to stay in an eternally perfect present, while learning how to work with new energetic concepts of time. Conscious Intent and Change
In The Seth Material, Seth, speaking through the late Jane Roberts, proposes that what he calls "temporal consciousness," or time, is essentially a dimension of action. This certainly seems to have been demonstrated by recent mass consciousness experiments on Art Bell's "Coast to Coast" radio show. The background to these experiments was research conducted by the Princeton Engineering Anomalies Research Institute, which has placed thirty-two data-recording instruments around the world to pick up changes in the Earth's field. On 9/11, a couple of hours before the first plane struck the World Trade Center, the Princeton group reported, there was a significant perturbation, or change, in this field.
Inspired by this indication that a field of mass consciousness exists which carries some sentience about the outcome of human events, Bell and his guest host, George Noory, issued specific requests to their vast numbers of radio listeners challenging them to act collectively in order to deliberately influence that field of consciousness to achieve a positive outcome.
At the time of this writing, the last such challenge issued was for the audience to visualize a resolution to the Washington "Sniper Crisis," such that the situation would be resolved quickly and no one else would be hurt. The two suspects who are now in custody were arrested in the early morning hours immediately following this show. No one was injured in the capture. This event is only the last in a long line of "coincidences" of many types that show us that the Concordance message is indeed an open invitation to play in the field of temporal dimension. Why not do so in the most inspired possible manner? Which is precisely the point. The great promise of this Harmonic Concordance Moment is that its potential may be assessed at any moment.Quantum physicists speak of "nonlocal" reality as comprising the basic structural "field" that supports and sustains all life. In this reality, time and space do not exist. This is the place from which we are able to see the Universal Perfection in All That Is; and it is from this vantage point that we can step through the Concordance paradox and into a divine state of existence, right now. Spirit will respond to any individual up-reach, at any time.
This is the symbolism inherent in the interlocking triangles of the Star of David pattern. It is therefore the great paradox of the Concordance Moment that if you wait until November 8, 2003, to experience it, you might well miss it completely!
John Mirehiel

P.S. From the view of PATRICIA DIANE COTA-ROBLES This is what will be happening:The Spiritual Hierarchy has revealed that 2003 is the year that is destined for the global shift of consciousness we have been anticipating for the past 50 years. There is going to be a Galactic alignment that will open a multidimensional portal of Divine Consciousness into the Heart and Mind of the omniscient, omnipotent, omnipresent Cosmic I AM-All That Is.During that rare moment, the Cosmic I AM will flood the Earth with unprecedented frequencies of Divine Consciousness and lift every man, woman and child a quantum leap into the remembrance of the Oneness of ALL life. That rare Galactic alignment will occur on November 8, 2003.
There will be a Star of David and other complex formations in the Heavens during a Lunar Eclipse that will be 18 degrees Scorpio.) On July 18, 2002 a crop circle unofficially dubbed the "Harmonic Concordance Crop Circle" appeared, which many felt was a response to work being done around the ideas of the Harmonic Concordance.
Astrological Configuration of the Harmonic Concordance Moment, November 8-9, 2003 When affording Chiron planetary status, the Moment contains a near perfect Grand Sextile/Star of David pattern in Earth and Water signs, featuring the six planets that offer the precisely appropriate energies for a planetary shift in consciousness: Sun, Moon, Jupiter, Mars, Saturn, and Chiron. I am frequently asked what relationship November 8-9, 2003, has to the Harmonic Convergence of 1987. José Argüelles, the well-known interpreter of ancient Mayan texts, called the world's attention to the 1987 event as being exceptionally propitious for the spiritual growth of humankind. The Harmonic Concordance of 2003 also offers us an exceptionally propitious Moment (and one shared throughout every time zone) for the further graduation of humanity as a whole, and for Mother Earth as well. In this sense they share the same lineage.

Drunvalo on the Harmonic Concordance

In the ancient Egyptian tradition, Lightness of Heart was absolutely paramount to a Spirit's ability to transcend into the higher worlds. The papyrus in the picture that illustrates this article (also see diagram at left) shows the human heart of one soul being weighed on a scale against Ma'at's feather in the opposite tray. In the Egyptian pantheon, Ma'at stood not just for truth but for balance, integrity, and the order of the universe.
In the Egyptian tradition represented here, if the heart is lighter than Ma'at's feather, then the soul can proceed to the higher realms. If not, then the soul must reincarnate on Earth, hoping next time to live a life that will bring this all important Lightness of Heart.

The Harmonic Concordance of 2003
Here I am again, going out on a limb. What I am about to say may not happen. But sometimes one has to do that in order to stay in integrity. And I feel that the signs are too strong for me to remain silent.
On November 8 and 9 - in just a few days - there will be in the Northern Hemisphere a total lunar eclipse. And during this eclipse there also will be, worldwide, a most remarkable event in the heavens: a Grand Sextile of planets.

The Grand Sextile is the six-pointed star, sometimes called the Star of David, and it will be formed during the lunar eclipse by five planets and Chiron.

And after a great deal of introspection, I have come to believe that this Harmonic Concordance represents an interdimensional opening of unparalleled importance to the human race. I believe that this moment in history is the time when the 4th Dimension will begin to open on Earth and the parameters of life will be extended beyond what we have previously thought possible.


The Concordance and Modern Prophecy
It was John Mirehiel, on August 28, 1998, who discovered this unique astrological chart and named it the "Harmonic Concordance of 2003." It as he, also, who first realized this was not the chart of an individual but of Mother Earth herself.

This chart, as John Mirehiel related it to me directly, depicts a potentially amazing time when the human race can change the external reality into one that is new, hopeful, and beautiful. This moment represents not the end of life but a new beginning.

When John presented this information to me, I had no context for it - no other facts against which to weigh what I was hearing. But with the recent predictions of the Maya and the Hopi, that has all changed.

Concordance and Convergence
From John Mirehiel's point of view, this November 8 - 9, 2003, is actually related to the Harmonic Convergence of 1987, which was announced to the world by Jose Argüelles and his wife, Lloydine. And from what I have read, both of these researchers also believe that November 8 - 9, 2003, will mark
the beginning of the last galactic spin cycle that ends on December 21, 2012.

But there is a growing body of researchers who believe that the Gregorian year 2012 does not line up with the Mayan Calendar date of 2012. In my research back in the mid-1980s, I discovered six places where, for political and religious reasons, the Catholic Church changed the date of the year, holding it back. From my understanding at that time, I could prove that according to the Mayan Calendar, our current Gregorian year of 2003 is really at least 2009.

But others say that there were three other times when the year was held back. If that's true, then right now, in the year 2003, we are actually at the year 2012 of the Mayan Calendar!

And if that's true, the recent predictions of the Mayan elders (that between August 16, 2003, and December 15, 2003, our world will undergo massive changes) makes total sense. This rereading of the year also agrees with the calculations of the Hopi elders, who believe that this same time period will bring the Day of Purification.

I spoke of the Hopi and Mayan predictions in the October newsletter (Letter No. 10). But they are not the only ones. There are medicine men and women from several traditions around the world who also agree that this time is the time we have been waiting for.

One set of facts that comes out of Egypt is extremely interesting when placed beside the Mayan and Hopi predictions. It concerns the Great Pyramid's stone calendar. I don't have the precise information before me anymore, but in the hallways that move through the Great Pyramid there is a series of parallel stones that have long ago been decoded to represent, year by year, the Gregorian Calendar. They could, of course, be decoded to represent any calendar. But if they relate to the Gregorian Calendar, they would represent a period of time beginning at about 10,500 BCE and extending through history to end in December 2003!

What might the ancient Egyptians have known about this fast-approaching date? And what does all of this mean? If my interpretation of all this data is true, then the Mayan date of December 21, 2012 - the End of Time date that we have all been hearing about for so many years - is actually going to happen this year![1] )

Any interpretation or prediction beyond that is up to you and whomever you are listening to. But what's clear is that, if it is accurate to readjust the Gregorian calendar downward by nine years (and I think it is), then the time we are now living through is no ordinary moment in history.

One last point. Sometimes people think that when December 21, 2012, is reached, the world will end or abruptively change forever. But I have spoken with the Mayan elder and shaman/priest Hunbatz Men, and with Don Pablo, who is the Mayan people's elected spokesperson, and they both agree that December 2003 will mark the end of a very long cycle, not the overnight emergence of a new world.

Realistically, it seems probable that the change we're anticipating began about 100 years ago, and that it will continue for some time in the future. In other words, the shift is not going to be an abrupt event.

The Harmonic Concordance and Lightness of Heart
I have been following the Hopi and Mayan predictions and studying ancient Egyptian knowledge for most of my life. And I feel that the time has now come to talk about why Lightness of Heart is essential for moving into the higher worlds. Let me relate this understanding in as few words as possible.

Like the worldwide shift itself, Lightness of Heart is not something that happens abruptly or automatically. It is achieved only over a long period of time and many, many lifetimes. But if you are ready, you will understand what I am saying, and the change will begin within you. If it does not, there is nothing to do but continue working toward this goal. When we enter into the higher dimensions - the "Fifth Sun" of the Mayans or the "Fifth World" of the Native Americans - the thoughts, feelings, emotions, words, and actions that radiate outward from us become powerful waveforms that manifest directly as the outer reality. We will create our reality directly by who we are.

If we radiate fear, then we will create a reality of fear. If we radiate love, then we will create a reality of love. And if this is true, then it becomes obvious why our inner state of consciousness is immensely important to our experience in these higher worlds.

Lightness of Heart is a state of being that is achieved by non-attachment. And that is achieved by an inner realization that all of Creation is whole, complete, and perfect, just exactly as it is in this moment. There is nothing to do and nowhere to go!

Another way of saying it is this: When one knows that God is present at each moment of life, and that God is whole, complete, and perfect, then, and only then, can this state of non-attachment be realized. Once this state of non-attachment is realized, Lightness of Heart follows automatically. And when we have reached Lightness of Heart, we have nothing more to gain or lose in life. In this state, we are one with God, and our lives become part of the Sea of Lives that is the matrix of Creation.

You can do this. Let go of the stress. Let go of the worry. Realize that God lives within you and all around you. And know that whatever you emit from the inside of your being will become the external world you live in and experience.

After November 8 - 9, 2003, I believe this fact of life is going to become more and more obvious. Let this New World begin with you.

In love and service,

Drunvalo

commentary by Astrologer John Mirehiel

Basic Chart Highlights

This most hopeful planetary alignment is a moment of rare beauty, astrologically. I know the immediate impact that it had on me, and I have seen that impact repeated in the recognition on the faces of countless others. Knowing anything at all about astrology, one cannot but be impressed. Even non-astrologers notice the symmetry and patterns in the chart that are its unique hallmark.

You will no doubt note that I have used Chiron as a planet. I have done so because I have seen it work, consistently and with the legitimate energy of a planet, in many hundreds of charts. Were you to ignore it, the pattern would not emerge. Using Chiron completes the Grand Sextile, and its significance as the "rainbow bridge between the inner and outer planets," thus comes into high focus.

The hexagonal outer frame of the of the chart is called a Grand Sextile. However, this pattern, in the compatible, feminine Earth and Water signs, is very rare, and this one is especially unique, since its widest orb is just some five and a half degrees (for the Sun and Moon) among all the planets, and it includes a total lunar eclipse.

Briefly, the Grand Sextile pattern in astrology signifies the mutual and unobstructed flow of energy between six planets through a sequence of sextile (60°) aspects.2 Add to that, the flow of energy that each of the six main planets in the configuration receives from two other trining planets, and one may see that the path of that flow between and among those six planets is wide open. This effect is only enhanced by the aforementioned tight aspect orbs among the planets. In essence, this energy flow creates a very powerful vortex, the exact likes of which does not occurred in the 6,000 year span between 3000 BC and 3000 CE that I have personally researched, and perhaps a good deal longer.3

Aside from the phenomena of the Grand Sextile, the planetary energies present at each of the pattern's six "stations" are very appropriate to a moment that would carry the astrological signature of the Ascension. Consider the qualities of the planets as they are represented through the metaphors of astrology:

The Sun - the primal energy; the cause for being; masculine in nature; the basic will and vitality that inspires life; our creativity and conscious aim;that which expresses the best of who we are,
The Moon - the archetypical feminine; the mother; the personal subconscious mind, memory and imagination the; tidal ebb and flow of emotion; the avenues of habit and instinct; the shelter of home,
Jupiter - the king of the gods; beneficence, good fortune and expansion; the publication of ideals; the higher mind, wisdom and enthusiasm; generosity, optimism and increase on all levels,
Mars - the courage, desire, energy and willingness to act; the stimulation of passion; the ability to be the spiritual warrior,
Saturn - the physical bones of the Earth and our bodies; the disciplinarian and 'tester' of our metal; the limitations of the physical; endurance, perseverance, and stability, and finally,
Chiron - the crystal rainbow bridge between physicality and spirit, the inner and outer planets; the wounded healer; Christ consciousness; initiation; the interface between God and Godling.

Could anyone want a better group of complimentary traveling companions for the voyage to the Ascended World?

The fact that a total lunar eclipse is part of the Grand Sextile pattern adds to its significance immensely. In at least one viewpoint, an eclipse carries the implication of the beginning of some important undertaking or the bringing to fruition of an issue that had its conception at an earlier time. This eclipse could just so mark one of those milestone events on a global level.

While the eclipse is one of the defining elements in the chart, it is only one of several factors that make it unique. Remember, the chart is not "place specific." That is to say, that since the Grand Sextile pattern arises from between planets only and does not rely on any "moving" point of the chart, such as the Ascendant or MC (as was the case with the Gaia Mind Day chart that was circulated for January 23, 1997), it is in effect, at the moment of the eclipse, at any location on Earth.

Within the Grand Sextile pattern there is the pattern known as the "Star of David" - formed by the two inverted Grand Trines. This pattern is also universally recognized as the three dimensional representation of the Merkabah, the Light Body Vehicle of Consciousness (a very important symbol for those working with Light energies). Another name for this planetary pattern is the "Seal of Solomon," which contains the promise of the advent of Divine Wisdom attendant upon this moment. Other pattern by-products of this tight Grand Sextile include: the three Mystic Rectangles, four Kites, and six Minor Grand Trines.

Astrologers will note that there are also three oppositions within the pattern, (four, if the wide Mercury/Moon is included) and a T-Square involving the Sun, Moon and Neptune (effectively bringing Neptune's voice into the pattern). While the three oppositions themselves might seem to indicate difficulties in the chart, I contend that the interconnectedness of the planets, through their mutual trines and sextiles (natural by-products of the Grand Sextile), allows them to find a "way around" the normal obstacles of each opposition, while also easing the stress of the T-Square.

Further, I see the square between Venus and Mars, along with the oppositions emphasizing the male/female, Yin/Yang relationship quality which the oppositions strongly suggest. This balance may be thought of as providing an energetic equilibrium for the vortex.

Several other key astrological factors are in play at this moment:

The Concordance Eclipse is a member of the Saros Series 5 New South, considered by Bernadette Brady as the "best" of all series.

Like the appropriateness of the planets involved in the Grand Sextile pattern, the Sabian Symbols of the planetary degrees are highly suggestive of the "Ascensional" character of the moment,

Mercury changes degree during the course of the eclipse, thereby giving it two Sabians,

Uranus, having reached its final Stationary Direct in Aquarius on that morning, will be at its strongest position during its entire 84+ year transit cycle.

The dynamic of the Mercury/Uranus square is heightened by its exclusivity allowing unencumbered communication between the two planets that represent the lower and higher intellectual capacities,

Mars finally clears the shadow of its relatively rare Pisces retrograde on the evening before the eclipse, freeing it to function in the "retrofitted" capacity of a spiritual warrior,

The goddesses Venus, Vesta and Juno are conjunct in the truth seeking sign of Sagittarius while Venus is in partile parallel (read conjunct) to Pallas Athena, the goddess of wisdom, fairly trumpeting the presence of the Goddess in this moment,

Five "power squares" appear between dynamically compatible planets: Jupiter and Pluto, the Sun and Neptune, Mercury and Uranus, Venus and Mars, and Neptune and the Moon.

Uranus, Neptune and Pluto are conspicuous by their absence from the Grand Sextile pattern, indicating that the basic energy pattern is one of uncompelled personal and individual choice,

There are several prominent Parallels of Declination,

For those interested in such things, Saturn and Chiron are in close conjunction to the fixed stars SIRIUS and VEGA respectively, and Lilith is in partile conjunction to ALCYONE (the Pleiades), calling into the moment the esoteric energies that those Star Beings represent4,

The North Node is at a Critical Degree,

The significance of the Part of Fortune at the 7th house cusp, at any location, and finally5,

When viewed as a Seventh Harmonic chart, it reveals a moment in time that is profoundly numinous, that is to say, it is filled with the sense of the presence of Divinity.

Perhaps other astrologers will find even more there.

Of course, each and every moment contains a unique blend of significant aspects, et.al., and an argument can surely be made for the fact that no one day has any more "important" indications that any other. Nevertheless, some days catch an astrologer’s eye more than others, and this is one that has captured my attention as no other before it. In short, it is the most elegant chart that I have ever seen.

If I may go back to the subject of the magnetar for a moment. It is my guess that stellar phenomena of this magnitude are not at all insignificant. The magnetar, after all, is a star, and we are quite literally the "stuff of stars." Taken from that perspective, I believe that it had some kind of resonance for every one on the planet. I would also surmise that this would be especially true for those with a sensitive point in their astrological chart at about 20° Capricorn (18° 12"), which was the approximate zodiacal longitude of the magnetar. And, as Laura Mahoney, one of our contributors to this site has pointed out, the Magnetar came from out of the northwest corner of the constellation Aquila...the Bird of the Sun...a symbol of ascension or immortality. Laura also notes that the keyword for that degree is "accelerated growth."

So there are the basic astrological nuts and bolts. But what does it all really portend? That is the subject of the essays and discussions found on these pages. Some outstanding members of the astrological community have also contributed their thoughts on what this day will bring. You'll find their articles listed in the left hand column.

Of course, we have our own spiritual/metaphysical ideas about what the HARMONIC CONCORDANCE moment will bring. You'll find them, along with several other contributor essays on that aspect of the chart, inside the SPIRITUALITY PORTAL.

2. See the Bil Tierney excerpt on the Grand Sextile for more details on this pattern.

3. There is one other chart in that 4,000 year span which shows both a total lunar eclipse and a Grand Sextile/Star of David pattern. The date is July 1, 1852. That chart is also in the Earth and Water signs, and its degrees match up very nearly with those of the Concordance chart too. The chief difference, and it is no small matter, is that the 1852 chart incorporates the outer planets, Uranus and Neptune, while not including Chiron. Interestingly, our ongoing research indicates that nothing of major import, which we are yet aware of, happened on that date.

4. Speaking of Saturn and Chiron, it is worth noting here that mythologically, Saturn is Chiron's father. When Saturn, who had seduced the nymph Philyra, abandoned Chiron immediately following his conception, it was Chiron's first "wound." The opposition between them in the chart offers an opportunity for them reach out to one another to heal that wound and resolve their relationship.

5. It should be noted that, because of the way it is calculated, the position of the Part of Fortune at the 7th house cusp occurs at every full moon. Therefore, while this is admittedly not an astrological rarity, when taken as one of the features of this unique moment, it "paints the blush on the rose" of the aspects of relationships with the "other" that is so heavily emphasized elsewhere in the chart.
