This week’s horoscopes are coming out under the light of a Void-Of-Course, Libra Moon. At 7:35 a.m. on Sept. 2, the moon left the sign of the Scales and slipped into Scorpio.
This week I would like to look at the way our lives unfold in a Fibonacci sequence, and talk about time and experience.
The Fibonacci sequence is a numeric progression that is found everywhere in nature. Discovered by Leonardo Fibonacci, back in the 12th Century, it can be seen in the patterns of sunflowers, in the patterns of pine cones, in the spiral structure of sea shells, in the waves of the ocean, in the arrangement of flower petals, and in pretty much everything in the natural world. This sequence is God’s fingerprint. If you open your eyes, you can see it everywhere.
From a mathematical perspective, the ratios that are inherent in the Fibonacci sequence have no beginning and no end. This means that as the numbers in the sequence increase, they approach perfection.
Our lives, and the years that span our passage from birth to death, are also defined by the Fibonacci sequence. Because our modern culture has been “youth-anized” to believe that human beings go into a state of decline with the passage of time, it may sound a little strange for me to say that we get closer to perfection as we age – but the older I get, the more I see that it is true. The indigenous people of the world understand this.
On the night that I decided to write about this, I sat down and applied the Fibonacci code to the human lifespan. This code has a specific sequence, but the formula can start with, and work with, any two numbers. I started with the number 1, and because the human intellect doesn’t kick in until the permanent teeth come in, I settled on the number 6 as my next number in the sequence. This is how it worked out: 1+6 =7; 7+6 =13; 13+7= 20 ;20+13= 33 ; 33+20= 53 ; 33+53=86 and so on.
Here is how it breaks down:
1) Age 7 is one-fourth of the first Saturn cycle, the point where the emotional/spiritual component begins to function in tandem with the intellect.
2) At 13, we are at the end of our first Jupiter cycle and half-way through our first Saturn cycle. What we call puberty is when we basically, divorce our parents and start forming a world view of our own.
3) When we reach 20, we have lived through one complete cycle of the lunar nodes, long enough to run through our past life story and catch a glimpse of what our purpose might be in the current incarnation.
4) At 33, life reaches critical mass. Saturn has returned to its natal position and we become 100% responsible for our choices and our actions. (Note: Jesus died when he was 33.)
5) At 38, we move into a phase that prepares us for the Uranus opposition. This is where we wake up to the idea that we didn’t come to this planet to be a slave to our developmental issues, or merely to breed and go shopping. We either begin to search out our true purpose, or fall fast asleep and decide to be a “muggle.”
6) By the time we turn 53, all of us have gone through our Chiron return, in which we get our first real peek at what our purpose on this earth is really all about.
7) And what about age 86? I have been told by a couple of 100-year-old Navajo women that life doesn’t even start to get good until we turn 85. By the time we are 86, if we have remained true to ourselves, the higher spiritual centers open and awaken naturally. The life cycle arcs out and takes the soul beyond space and time.
The reason we have no knowledge of these things, and are stuck on the notion that life goes into a state of decline as we age, has to do with the fact that at the end of the Kali Yuga, the last thing that the powers that be wanted was a population of enlightened, older people. The reasons for this are complex, but things have gone so far off the rails, at this point in time we actually worship youth, and have been programmed to the belief that older people are all drooling, demented, and decrepit. Did it ever occur to you that, that state of affairs was engineered to make us forget and keep us asleep?
If it’s true that “We can’t know where we are going until we reflect upon where we’ve been,” the longer we are on the path, the more we know about how to get from A to B. Time is the mother of truth. I invite you to take what you can from this week’s ‘scopes.
