excerpt from Julie Black, commentary Nagual Paco

In the beginning there was nothing; nothing at all. No light, no life, no consciousness, no movement, no breath. In the beginning of time and in the Void the Oldest of Old Gods, Ometeotl, was formed.

Toltec tradition says there are two possibilities, the Nagual and the Tonal. The Nagual is the eternal nothingness, more generally known as the unknowable or unspeakable. The Tonal is everything else; everything that can be named or distinguished.

It is the nature of things that Ometeotl, Creator of the Universe, was both masculine and feminine. This is why the Supreme First God was able to create himself-herself, because he-she could bear life alone. And so it was that the Oldest of Old Gods began the Creation in the dark emptiness that was nothing.

The Nagual is neither masculine or feminine, or both. One is active and the other receptive. Both are equal and dissimilar. Like calculus in mathematics, there is a need for differentiation as much as for integration. To value the heart over the mind is as imbalanced as valuing logic over intuition.

Ometeotl was the first existence to be. This Oldest of Old Gods was therefore, everything that was. When everything exists in one being, all opposites unite. The Creator is both generator of chaos and giver of harmony and order. Ometeotl is both spirit and matter, fire and water, black and white, stillness and movement, life and death, creator and destroyer, and the embodiment of good and evil. Because of this, the Oldest of Old Gods is called the God of Duality, and is the divinity where opposites converge in a supreme manifestation of The All.

In the nothingness of the Void, Ometeotl, The First God, created himself-herself, thought himself-herself up, invented himself-herself, in order to initiate The Beginning, and thus generate all that would exist thereafter. Giver of life and the one who takes it away, the Oldest God both creates and destroys in order to generate Ollin, the sacred movement in continuum, which gives impulse to our world.

In the Nagual nothing can exist but potential resides until there is the slightest movement (action) which creates both Time (active) and Space (the container). The emergence of the Tonal or impulse for our world, comes from the differentiation of opponents (polarity) and the ensuing integration into All That Is.

The Eris Factor – Discordance

I wrote a blog post some time ago on the planet Eris. Following the political, climatic and geophysical events of the last few months I feel it time to write another. Few astrologers seem to have commented on the nature and influence of Eris and I think this is quite an oversight. In homeopathy the greater the dilution factor the greater the potency of the remedy, which works at deeper levels and over a greater period of time. The same applies to the outer planets in astrology, and Eris is the outermost of all in the solar system.

Saturn is the last planet that is seen with the naked eye, meaning has the greatest impact on the physical world. Beyond that we find Uranus the first planet representing consciousness with generational influences. Actually, to be totally correct astrologically, we have the captured comet Chiron lying between Uranus and Saturn, which is said to rule healing, but because it rules the sign of Virgo I suggest it also represents science in its true nature of revealing truths.

Beyond Uranus comes the giant Neptune followed by the demoted dwarf planet and moon, Pluto and Charon, and finally the tiny dwarf Eris of which we know very little astronomically. The relationships between these outer planets is a commentary on the way things are transforming. They are transforming because the central planet of the outer three is Pluto, the planet of transformation.

However, the main point of this blog is the present, and the patterns that are in action. Eris has been in the sign of Aries since 1927 and will remain until 2049, however at this particular moment Uranus will cross over an exact conjunction with Eris in early March 2017, exactly when the Sun is transversing Aries as well. All this while that conjunction is squaring Pluto in the sign of Capricorn. This means that what astrologers are generally saying is potentised by the deeper influences activated by Eris.

ishtarTo really understand this we need to remember that Eris was the only Goddess not invited to the wedding of Peleus and Thetis. Peleus and his brother Telamon killed their half-brother Phocus, and that left something that needed investigation. Thetis bore the child Achilles and dipped him in the river Styx to give him immortality. Unfortunately she held him by the heel and that left him with a vulnerability. This demonstrates that there something can emerge from this relationship that seems to offer safety but which has a serious flaw.

The goddess of discord and chaos, Eris brought a golden apple to the wedding on which was inscribed “to the fairest”. When she rolled the apple into the feasting guests it was fought over by Hera, Aphrodite and Athena. Paris was chosen to decide to whom it belonged. He chose Aphrodite because she promised he would marry the most beautiful woman, which turned out to be Helen of Troy. The “apple of discord” is a euphemism for the crux of a small argument that leads to a great dispute that leads to war.

daughtersEris had 14 daughters: Ponos (Pain/Toil/Labour), Lethe (Forgetfulness/Oblivion), Limos (Famine), the Algea (Pains/Sorrows), the Hysminae (Fightings/Combat), the Machae (Battles/Combat), the Phonoi (Murders/Slaughters), the Androctasiae (Manslaughterers), the Neicea (Quarrels), the Pseudea (Lies/Falsehoods), the Amphillogiae (Disputes), Ate (Ruin/Blind folly), Horcus (Oath), and Dysnomia (Anarchy/Lawlessness).

From these you can see what the fruits of Eris’s labour are. How many of these have we born into our world? Yet it didn’t have to be that way. It was only because Eris was barred from the wedding that she bore malice. As I pointed out in my last blog, like all planets Eris has two sides, one is Divine Justice and the other is Divine Retribution. She brings to the surface those things that need to be healed. Something that is covered up will continue to fester until it is exposed or made transparent.

As we enter this new paradigm, and to simplify and de-mystify it, I will say in the age of the internet of things, it is easier to create false flag episodes as well as present exposure. So what happened when Eris entered Aries in 1927? Look it up.

great-flood-victimsHere are some of the interesting things. In China an earthquake measuring 8.6 on Richter scale struck Xining, killing 200,000 people. More major than the meagre ones happening now. Josef Stalin took control in Russia and expelled Trotsky. Stalin took charge of the death of between 34 to 49 million people. The greatest national disaster in US history was the Great Mississippi Flood which affected 700,000 people. Water flooded an area of twenty-seven thousand square miles. Staying with the US, striking miners from the Columbine Mine were massacred with machine gun fire at Serene by Colorado State Rangers. In Britain, a 1000 people a week died from an influenza epidemic, and the list goes on.

uranusIt is also interesting that in 1927, Uranus was also conjuncting with Eris even though Eris had not come into human consciousness. At that time, Pluto was not in the picture at all, whereas it is now the focus of what is known as a T-square. Jupiter is opposing Uranus/Eris, with both squaring Pluto. Pluto being the planet of transformation tells us that in order to move forward, to evolve, to expand our position (Jupiter), we have to come to terms with a radical shift (Uranus) towards bringing in the principles inherent in the Aquarian age, Responsibility, Accountability, and Transparency. If we cannot make that radical shift then Eris’s daughters will make their presence felt even more.

How you choose to interpret this in line with the present situation around the globe I leave up to the individual. I have noticed that world events are systemic consequences of national ones, which arise from very personal experiences and actions. The reality is that we all do get what we deserve. Events occur, but it is how you choose to respond that matters. There is a story told about Gurdjieff who was in Paris during the Nazi occupation. Asked how it was for him, he replied “what are you talking about? What has this to do with anything?” He continued to live and continue his work as before. There might be disruptions, but this is to be expected as Eris brings in the needed justice, or the retribution. As I mentioned in my previous post, the statue of Eris has always stood on top of the Old Bailey courthouse in London.

So what does mean in practical terms? What predictions can I make? Many people are looking for predictions as a way to defend and protect themselves from what is going to happen. Actually, the only thing that is going to happen is what you create fro yourself. At this time too, so many people are struggling to get into their hearts, as if this too is the solution. Accompanying this is the idea the head, thinking, is the trouble maker, that the heart is all about loving and not also about desiring. If you were to distinguish between the two wouldn’t that require the head? You can have the best intentions, the most profound realisations, the most loving feelings, but unless you put these into practice then how useful were they? The old saying is so true; “the streets of hell are paved with good intentions”.

Eris brings this to the foreground. By our own actions will we be judged. With the unexpected influence of Uranus, Eris delivers to us instant karma. It is not for us to worry what is another’s justice, only that we stay present and responsive. Eris will bring what is personally needed, never fear, unless you are being dishonest with yourself or others.

As you progress you will have an opportunity to commit to what is traditionally called a Path with Heart. This “heart” is not an idea, has nothing to do with chakras, or emotions, this “heart” is a description of the very core of being, the centre where you and the universe are One.

Time and dates are interesting concepts. It wasn’t until the late 18th century that standardised time even existed. Up until then time was a natural phenomenon. The sun rose in the morning at the start of the day and went down at night. The winter day was shorter than summer, when more time was needed for harvesting.

Mechanical clocks were in use, of course, but their accuracy was in question unless they were kept stable. This meant that measuring time on a boat was impossible, and so it was not possible to determine a boat’s actually position. Then, the rotating gimble was invented which allowed exact positions to be calculated. This in turn allowed accurate maps to be made. By the late 1700 the first railway timetable was drawn up and the British Parliament passed a law standardising Greenwich Mean Time.

As we come to the end of 2012 Gregorian calendar, time and date has less validity because of globalisation and the ability of technology to communicate across the planet at any time. The upshot of this is that ideas based on numbers, such as 12-12-2012 are only valid to those that use this calendar. These are man-made configurations. Time is a measure of cycles. A day is the passage of sunrise to sunrise the following day, ie the cycle of the rotation of the Earth. A month is the rotation of the moon around the Earth. A year is the rotation of the Earth around the Sun and so on. Then man manipulated these cycles to fit with a mechanical and equal measures.

The point is that the natural measure of time is the movement of the planets, and these planetary rotations are not equal but effect one another. From this we discover that at the end of any “Long Count” there has to be a planetary configuration. With this in mind 12-12-2012 is less relevant that 13-12-2012 because this day has the last new moon (conjunction of Sun and Moon) of the year. What this new moon bring forth finds its fulfilment at the full moon on 28th December at the beginning of the “three days of darkness”. These are not likely to be physically dark, unless the transition period incorporates a collapse in the electrical grids that connect most of the world. That can easily be put out of action by an EMP (electro-magnetic pulse) whether solar or man-made.

Watch my talk on the astrology of the “days of darkness”.

Merc gave a session quite a long time ago about how much human beings are addicted to substances and behaviours. He says that by labelling a behaviour as a habit gives it a semblance of respectability. But it is as it is, an addiction.

Like any addiction something that has a hold over you requires a determination to free oneself. In the old religious terminology this was seen as the work of the devil. There are three levels of distinctions in the mental field; belief, conviction and certainty. In order to begin to unravel the grip of the addiction a person has to detach from the certainty by acknowledging that it has its power because you are convinced you have no choice. This word derives from the latin vincere – to win or overcome. When you convince yourself you can overcome the feeling you choose freedom. You realise that you are being controlled by a belief which actually has no substance.

Substance is that on which you are standing, or the position that you are taking. All along the way you begin to identify that you are in charge, you decide, you are the YOU that is upholding this position. For the position you hold no-thing can be different. Now is your Point of Power. Now is the only moment you have to change your position.

invest1“Invest in Youself” has come alive to provide inspiration, motivation and provide services that give tools to build a personal quintuple value. That is tools for the basis of financial security, the framework for a sustainable home/work environment, tools for building sound social/collegiate/relationships, tools for discovering a deeper understanding of self, and access to a higher wellspring of knowledge.

These values make up a golden key to Health, Wealth and Wisdom. The key to the “authentic self” is an acceptance of the whole of yourself, as you are. So often we try to present in a way that is acceptable to others and in the process become compartmentalised to ourselves. In fact comparting over a span of time may be the biggest cause to the problems a person has.

Integration is the mathematical opposite to differentiation.  If the geological definition is used then, differentiation is any process in which a mixture of materials separates out partially or completely into its constituent parts. Integration is when separate parts become one whole.
