We have occurring today, (for some yesterday) a New Moon "Ring of Fire" Solar Eclipse @ 6:53 am, an opposing action to that of the Full Moon Lunar Eclipse a few weeks back. Too some, this New Moon action is also called the "Midnight Sun" as well as "Black Sun".
Mercury, is as some would say "On LEAVE" - He has stepped back, and is kinda just humming along without all the Mortal drama, and anxieties hammering at his feet... Mercury is quite the Teacher in this action - He does the same "Ritual" several times a Year, and folks still get bent out of shape when it happens..!!
What many fail to note, is that HE is TEACHING the idea that HE is NOT the only Messenger at hand.... If Mortals just took a little bit of Time and effort in their experiences of the Spirituality, One soon discovers that there are many stand by's ready to aid and assist!!
Now lets take the fact that the Cosmic sign of the "Pair" - Gemini is also at play - in many ways an opposing Pair - and yet Identical - then the same flow of Energy applies with the Two Moons - that of the Lunar Eclipse, opposing AND yet United with that of the Solar Eclipse...(@ 6:53 am that has now drifted on by - by the time most get to read this!!) That is too say that the current Action <> Re-Action, is for many to attempt to thrive on Diversity, along with the mindset of "how are we each seem similar", rather than "how are we so very different"?.
No matter what Planets have engaged to this sec of reading, it now matters not, aside from Mars - and certainly Mars (FIRE) is one of that needs soothing! He alone - VERY much alone - ALL too often gets the bumm rap - rather than the respect of a Warrior doing His best - (especially under the circumstances) - without Communication........cause the 'Bird' (Air) is hold up in some Tree (Earth) due to the Storm (Water)!!
This is also likened to another Powerful animal aspect - one that some are familiar with - the Jaguar 'God' of Terrestrial Fire and War - known as 'Night Sun'.... the shape supposedly taken by the Sun (Kinich Ahau) during his nightly journey through the Otherworld. The Jaguar, feared and respected, is central to the Mayan pantheon, embracing both the Dark and the Light. Their principle Divinity are Jaguar Dieties, most notably the 'Black Jaguar of the Otherworld', or the Divinity of Terrestrial Fire, and the Light Jaguar of the Upper Creation and Destruction who are "TWINS" (Gemini), not opposites in the Mayan Cosmology.
Jaguar is also connected with the number 7 = Time ...and we have today 10 June = 10 + 6 = 16 (Divination) = 7 (Time)
Jaguars are associated with the Night sky, especially in the form of a 'Black Panther' - the Golden glowing Eyes surrounded by a Black formidable Silky Energy - not unlike the Solar Eclipse experienced earlier today....
The spotted Jaguar also had Night associations, their marks symbolizing the Stars. Their Golden colour represented the Sun, and their eyes, glowing with Light, were said to be the Mirrors of the Moon. (That of the Lunar Eclipse & Solar Eclipse)... ALL of which we are encountering currently!
The term 'Black Sun' (German Schwarze Sonne), also referred to as the Sonnenrad (the German for "Sun Wheel"), and is a symbol of Esoteric and Occult significance. It is often seen as - ’Left Hand Path’ under the ’Wheel of the Black Sun’. Thule, being in the center (Core), is positioned as the Source of all Life on Earth. In Greek mythology, Pythagoras was taught sacred geometry by Apollo, a Deity who was identified as a resident of Hyporborea. In Pythagorean teachings, the Earth itself geometrically unfolds from a Void in the center.
This Void has been recognized by many Ancient groups, including the Sumerians, as the "Black Sun". In this sense, Thule is synonymous with this Black Sun.
In Alchemy - specific Solar motifs can be found in the form of a "Dark" or "Black Sun", or as a Green Lion devouring a Sun.
Sol niger (Black Sun) can also refer to the first stage of the Alchemical Magnum Opus, the nigredo (blackening). In a text ascribed to Marsilio Ficino, Three Suns are described: Black, White, and Red, corresponding to the Three most used alchemical colour stages.
.....and as we move towards the point of Mud-Summer - Midpoint in the Year - towards the Faerae Collective - then this Moon speaks also of the ... 'Black Sun' known in the Keltic aspects - the Lore is that of a Faerae, who was an orphan in the Forest of Broceliande - She was called 'Brunissen', and she wept for Seven years.
Only the Song of the Magickal Birds could ease her sadness. Then a Warrior, who had passed several tests, traveled through the Forest, and fell in an enchanted sleep (me thinks much of this Lore is more pertaining to a Shaman Journey). In his sleep, he drew Brunissen's attention away from her grief. Some have called Brunissen the legendary form of the Dark side of an Ancient Sun Goddess, the "Black Sun" of the Otherworld. - Women of the Kelts - Inner Traditions 1986
Sól tér sortna, sígur fold í mar, hverfa af himni heiðar stjörnur. Geisar eimi við aldurnara, leikur hár hiti við himin sjálfan.
"The Sun turns Black, Earth sinks into the Sea, the bright Stars vanish from the sky; steam rises up in the conflagration, a high Flame plays against heaven itself".
“Völuspá” (The Wise Woman’s prophecy), ca.AD 1270
