La Lune est très belle d'une manière mystérieuse, no? Mais la sienne est d'une beauté étrange et troublante, comme nous le verrons...
Some interesting excerpts from the Cayce psychic-guidance readings about the Moon:
"The sun indicates strength and life, the moon indicates change." [GCE's comment: more so, minor, everyday kind of changes, than major ones--that is Saturn's realm] Reading 5746-1
"(These tendencies towards insanity are) governed considerably by the amount of anxiety that is around in the surroundings for the body at periods when there is the change in the moon.
These are not then purely mental aberrations but physical also.
We find that the castor oil packs over the abdomen and right side would be well occasionally for the lack of eliminations...
We find that the suggestive treatments will be more quieting to the body if they are continued in the present, especially during those periods when it is the increase of the moon and full activity, or during the light of the moon period." Reading 1553-7
"The moon's elements...bring the forces in love affairs." 900-6 (This man, Morton Bluementhal, years later went on to cheat on and break up with his wife whom he had a young child with, for a pseudo psychic lady that led him and his brother astray in many ways--including facilitating a wedge between him and Edgar Cayce. However, that was at least somewhat likely to eventually happen anyways, as they had difficult karma with each other from both Egypt and Troy--had been on adversarial sides in both experiences.
Cayce's guidance had warned Morton to not expose his son to great mental-emotional distress and inharmony such as anger, fighting, etc, because he had unstable but yet gifted tendencies, and needless to say with the messy divorce/break up, he was exposed to all that and ended up in a mental institution, as was earlier insinuated/implied could happen).
"Being under the influence of the moon and sun also, we find in the sun the strength and in the moon, weakness*." Reading 2990-2
*GCE's use of bolding
"The Moonstone or the agate should be as an amulet, either about the neck or as a ring, or worn upon the person.
From the astrological aspect there was a sojourn on the moon. Hence the moon is active influence for entity, and do not ever sleep with the moon shining upon the face. In the sunshine, much, for the moon and the sun are the ruling of the emotions." Reading 1401-1
[For one specific individual, not speaking in general] "On dark days with little sunshine there is an appreciable manifestation of fear and dread. And especially does this occur when the moon by its position is on the opposite side of the orb of the earth." Reading 264-31
A percentage of folks (especially women it seems), seem to put the Moon on a pretty high pedestal. Like Cayce's guidance, I don't. In my psychic/intuitive goings within and communicating with expanded levels of guidance, I have figured out that the Moon connects primarily to the 2nd Center i.e. Leydig cells and some to the amygdala and hypothalamus.
In a symbolic sense, the moon is an extremely right brain hemisphere type vibratory pattern, and that is connected a lot to fear emotions. The Moon is a fairly slow vibratory pattern, which is why Cayce's guidance linked it to weakness, fear-worry, and materialism.
But, like all the colors within the Clear-White Light, we need some Moon, just as we need some Mars, Saturn, and Pluto to be fully balanced and integrated, for these all have their corresponding colors/vibratory patterns in the Clear-White Light. The problem is that these are very easy to over attune to when phased into the physical level (i.e. incarnated as a human).
And that over attunement to the slow vibratory parts or levels of the Clear-White Light, bring much suffering to our Souls while we are here. Hence, we should ever seek to attune to the higher forces as symbolized by especially Neptune, Jupiter, and Sun or even better yet, Source and pure Love consciousness. However, it is the converse problem or issue--these are harder to attune to while connected to a human body. Whereas attuning to Saturn, Mars, Lunar, and Pluto forces/vibratory patterns is almost automatic for those connected to a human body (unless severe trauma has taken place, and a person is very disconnected from their body, but that is not the norm).
To attune to Neptune, Jupiter, and Sun mostly positively while connected to a human body takes definite focus, discipline, effort, and desire.
The Moon being strong in a person's chart, also represents often (not always) that the consciousness, either directly or indirectly (through being made of different soul parts as a soul mix by their "Higher/Expanded self), had an experience as an earthbound Soul i.e. what many of us might call a "ghost". These are souls that when their physical body dies, rather than move on to the nonphysical dimension that they most resonate to on an inner/deeper level, they become stuck/attached to the physical earth, but often do not realize that their physical body is dead and they are now phased fully into the nonphysical.
Some individuals spend a very long time being stuck in this very limiting and suffering state. People can become stuck like this from various different reasons, but the most common are having very strong but inaccurate belief systems about what happens when the body dies when they are connected to a body, experiencing major trauma while dying, dying while the body is unconscious, and very strong materialism/over attachment to the physical.
Emotions get magnified when one is disconnected from the physical body, but still very connected (over attached) to the earth-physical energies. This is part of the reason for the Moon's association with emotions, and especially those of feelings that almost, to do, overwhelm. For many of these poor stuck ones, are in a constant state of being emotionally overwhelmed by their feelings and/or fears.
Way back in the day, when Rosalind McKnight was volunteering with Bob Monroe as one of his consciousness "Explorers", there was a very intense account of a retrieval of such a stuck individual, which Bob audio recorded Rosie channeling through both her guidance and the stuck individual. The person in question was a young Scottish man, barely more than a lad, who ended up dying while out to sea on a ship that he worked on in the kitchen. There had been an explosion and everyone ended up dying either from the above or later drowning.
Patrick didn't know it at the time, but his physical body had died, and yet in his mind, he was still adrift on the ocean, holding on to a piece of wood for dear life and waiting for rescue, filled with abject fear, worry, and loneliness. After Rosie's guidance connected them, Bob via Rosie, made a personal connection to Patrick and gently led him into the awareness that in reality, his physical body had already died, and that he didn't need to be where he was anymore. Towards the end, Patrick started to perceive the Light and see his parents and other loved ones beckoning him to the higher levels of the other side. He was most grateful to Mr. Monroe for the help as tears of joy and appreciation streamed down Rosie's face as she channeled him through.
It was an extremely emotional event for all parties involved, and really drove home the importance of partaking in the service work of retrievals (i.e. helping stuck/lost souls to become unstuck).
Btw, the South Node also has a feeling/vibe that is very Lunar like. This makes sense, as the Nodes are reasoned/conceptualized from a combination of the relationship and orbits between the Sun, Earth, and Moon. The South Node carries the more Lunar and earthly part, and the North Node represents the seeking of the earth to move more towards the Sun, symbolically speaking. Hence, if a person has very strong South Node connections in their chart, they can appear as quite Lunar like in nature, even if the Moon itself is not very highlighted.
When both Moon and South Node are highlighted simultaneously, then one can be almost sure that they are coming from an experience of having been in that earthbound-ghost state before incarnating in this life, and that experience has a strong influence on them, which often manifests as being easily emotionally overwhelmed, easily becoming imbalanced, letting fears and worries overly control or influence them, etc.
On the positive side, they often are quite lovable (for their gentleness, sympathy, and if female their feminine charms) when being more centered/balanced, are often rather in tune with public consciousness, and can have a very funny, almost absurdist type sense of humor.
These are some of the parts/aspects of the Moon that we want (and need) to keep in our journey to remembering/realizing our Sourceness which is represented by and symbolically connected to that pure Clear-White Light consciousness and vibratory pattern.
As far as "love affairs", sex, and sexuality goes, the Moon is like a slightly higher and Yin octave of Mars energy. Whereas Mars is like pure Yang pure lust--very much that testosterone type reaction, experience, and feeling that males tend to be more prone to than females, the Moon connects to a more passive, receptive, and Yin-Feminine sexuality. It still involves hormones and that impetus to pro create in the earthly sense, but it is not as grasping and intense as the Mars sexual energy and lust. Basically, the difference between Moon and Mars is very well illustrated in the symbolic difference between the vagina and the penis. Spiritually, it would be well for all entities to become in touch with and attuned to both sides, but to let neither control them.
P.S., you would probably get more replies if you put this in the main Astrology 2.0 section. It would fit in there.
