The So(u)lar System

 Life becomes a flow of creativity and discovery when we dance in time with the so(u)lar system

21st century planet earth

Life’s got intense

We’re trying to give birth

To a new paradigm

A new way of seeing

Our place in the Cosmos.

We need an anchor to hold us steady

We need the wisdom that gets us ready

For vibrational shift

For the Great Awakening

When everything we know will change.


The Earth is the anchor we need

Her seasons and cycles are the way she leads

us to the fulfilment of the human journey

The Planets are the guides on the way to wisdom

For the solar system is the map

of the Soul System which we each manifest.

The end of delusions, no more separation

this is the ultimate revelation –

We are the eyes, the ears, the words of Creation

And every living thing is holy.


Spirits born to reach for our destiny

Know that I am another you and you another me.

We are all part of the one great Being

and the world is created through our beliefs

so stop believing in death, in sin

because divinity and unity is found within

drop the attachment to separation and suffering

the Self inside emerges

when we fear no more and let love be the lore.


The Sun gives life to the solar system, we are that life at the stage of self-questioning and seeking knowledge… and the answers we need are right inside us… the solar system is the SOUL system

The planets of the Solar System travel through the 12 signs of the zodiac,

revealing through their placement in each individual chart:

  • Sun: Why do I act and express myself the way I do
  • Moon: Why do I react and feel the way I do
  • Ascendent: Why do I see and meet the world the way I do
  • Mercury: Why do I think and communicate the way I do
  • Venus: Why do I express affection the way I do
  • Mars: Why do I express anger and passion the way I do
  • Jupiter: Where do I feel most confident and where do I push my luck
  • Saturn: Where do I feel most anxious and where do I need to realize authority
  • Uranus: Where do I rebel and innovate
  • Neptune: Where do I lose touch with reality and how do I escape it
  • Pluto: Where do I feel most powerless and how do I need to let go of ego to transform

Far from being a distant, simply physical thing, the sun gives us life and also effectively shines back at itself from within us, the sun is the alchemical symbol for the Self. Like the sun we shine our individual nature on the world. The moon is the sunlight reflected and represents our inner world of dreams, visions and emotions. The planets reflect key archetypal energies in our collective matrix of consciousness….in very simple terms, Mercury is the Messenger, he rules the mind, Venus is the Goddess of Love and rules the heart, Mars is the warrior energy, Jupiter the benevolent father, Saturn the teacher, Uranus the revolutionary, Neptune the Mystic and Pluto Dark Lord of the Subconscious. We can add to this list at least two smaller but significant bodies in the solar system: Chiron, the Wounded Healer and Ceres, the Great Mother, whose influence and effects are still being discovered.

The planets journey through the 12 signs of the zodiac, which divide into four elemental categories and three modalities – each element has one cardinal, one fixed and one mutable manifestation

Fire signs:  Aries cardinal, Leo fixed, Sagittarius mutable

Earth signs:  Capricorn cardinal, Taurus fixed, Virgo mutable

Air signs:  Libra cardinal, Aquarius fixed, Gemini mutable

Water signs:  Cancer cardinal, Scorpio fixed, Pisces mutable

The journey of the zodiac year from Aries to Pisces takes us on a wisdom journey into the human soul.  Each month the cosmos is putting one aspect of who we are centre stage through the Sun’s position.

The first four signs of the zodiac bring focus to our individuality:  Aries: I AM.   Taurus: I HAVE   Gemini: I THINK    Cancer:  I FEEL

The second four signs of the zodiac are about our relationships with others:  Leo:  I WILL   Virgo: I ANALYSE   Libra:  I BALANCE   Scorpio:  I DESIRE

The final four signs of the zodiac bring energy to our connection with community, society and spirit: Sagittarius:  I AIM    Capricorn: I USE   Aquarius:  I KNOW   Pisces:  I BELIEVE

Consider this:  for centuries religious authorities in the west forbad the practice of astrology, not because it is invalid but because they did not want the populace to have access to the eternal wisdom of the cosmos.  The modern scientific paradigm insists there is no truth in astrology, but the souls inside so many humans instinctively know this is wrong.  Astrology is booming on the World Wide Web because it gives us insight into the subtle archetypal energies of the human spirit, which is not disconnected from the rest of creation – it is intrinsically and eternally part of it.  As Above, So Below said the ancients.  ‘Know thyself’ was the maxim.  The stars, planets, the sun and moon are all in the sky reflecting back to us who we are, showing us the Way.

“It will be a marvellous thing – the true personality of man – when we see it. It will grow naturally and simply, flowerlike, or as a tree grows. It will not be at discord. It will never argue or dispute. It will not prove things. It will know everything. And yet it will not busy itself about knowledge. It will have wisdom. Its value will not be measured by material things….. “‘Know thyself’ was written over the portal of the antique world. Over the portal of the new world, ‘Be thyself’ shall be written.” FROM THE SOUL OF SOCIALISM by Oscar Wilde
