48: A RIGHT ROYAL ORGY

Mon 29 May 15.19 - Mooning Monthly Edition 48 searching for personal sovereignty in the face of mass media fuelled disempowerment....


Full moon ahoy Mooners


Rising to its glorious, sun illumined max this UK bank holiday Monday afternoon, our silver sister Luna shakes her tush in Sagittarius. It's a right royal moon this one, aligning with stars considered regal from way back in astrological antiquity so it's no real surprise that the aristocracy and societal 'powers that be' love this time of year.


In the UK the Sagittarius Full Moon is traditionally apportioned to general elections, referendums, royal weddings and the monarch's 'official' birthday amongst other notable calendar events. And why not? The sun shines and early summer sees most of us in optimistic high spirits and less clothing. Surely, it's a simple and natural coincidence.


But, as ever in human history, all is not perhaps as it seems. The ruling families and cults that have disproportionately held sway over the masses of humanity for many thousands of years are steeped in astrology and matters esoteric however vehemently they publicly denounce it.


The grand cult of the Catholic Church is the arch exponent of such defamation, declaring Astrology as heretical nonsense; the work of witches and demons historically deserving of public torture and burning at the stake. And yet, as disclosed in Mooning Monthly 44 (click here) to this day the Vatican uses pagan astrological markers to determine the dates of Easter, it's most important festival of the year. Heresy indeed.


And why would dictators, ruling families, cults and despots wish to denounce astrological observance and study whilst over centuries employ court advisors, magicians and sages to predict propitious, firmament informed dates for births of nation states, marching into battle, accords of peace, trade agreements, marriages between dynasties and journeys of discovery and conquest?


Inevitably, it's all about power. If the masses (that's us dear Mooners) through any vile means dictated, are reduced to a state of submissive ignorance, they are easier to control. In ignorance and fear, we are far more suggestible to being told when, where and how to behave rather than having the nous to work it out for ourselves. In ignorance and fear we become as compliant as puppets in the unseen, controlling hands of our puppet masters.


Well hidden astrologers were employed by British, Nazi and Russian secret services as recently as the Second World War to advise and predict war policy and planning. Admission of such counsel in the public domain would have caused absolute outrage as millions of young men and innocents were sent to their deaths in the killing fields and concentration camps across Northern Europe. Statistics vary but civilian deaths were reckoned to be between 50 and 55 million. When wartime disease and famine are factored in the figure rises to more than 80 million lives lost as a direct result of the pursuit of the few for power over the many. The efficacy of the astrological advice is naturally debatable when faced with such horrifying statistics but, rest assured, those at the top of the power tree still factor such 'pagan mumbo jumbo' into their powerbroking equations.


Some more contemporary mumbo jumbo for y'all: in the wake of last weekend's royal beanfeast of a wedding here in the UK (heralding this Sagittarius Full moon) Prince Harry's big brother, the future King William, approaches his midsummer birthday next month, just shortly after his Grandmother, Queen Elizabeth's official anniversary. And midsummer his birthday is, quite literally. William was born by elected cesarian (i.e. when the family decided was 'best' for the invasive operation) on the Midsummer Solstice 21st June 1982. Any self respecting Celt or Pagan will tell you that the Midsummer Solstice and attendant festival is the most important, powerful day of the year for the Sun God and his followers. Astronomically, it's the longest day of the year, representing the God at full power controlling all before him. Woo wooo! The royal family would have been well aware of that anachronistic cultural symbolism and have determined, via the controlled nature of his birth, to attribute it to William. Poor sod!


And I'm afraid it's still going on. William and Kate's latest child, Prince Louis, was born by Cesarian Section (sigh) on 23 April this year.......ON SAINT GEORGE'S DAY..... ffs. For those that might be intrigued, St George (officially patron saint of England and 'protector of the royal family') achieved his fame by slaying a nasty dragon that held a beautiful princess under lock and key back in the day. Historians largely view the legend as an allegory for the mass conversion of people from pagan religions, represented by the dragon, to Christianity, represented by St. George. Georgie boy's flag, the cross of St George, has of course in recent years been appropriated by the the far right in the UK as a symbol of white nationalism and a rallying banner for anti immigration and Islamaphobia. This symbolism can of course be contested but the cultural identity foisted upon li'l Louis by the choice of his birth date, cannot.


That all sounds a bit scarily close to irrelevant conspiracy theorising but bear with us a moment. The allegories of astrologers and women being burnt at the stake for understanding the movements of the stars and medicinal properties of herbs are still pertinent. The covert, continued relevance of pagan mythology in the ruling echelons of cults, dynasties, demagogues, despots and democracies remains symptomatic of the peculiarly human imposition of societal hierarchies: of them and us, of the haves and have nots, of those in the know and those kept in the dark.


In observing the effects on ourselves of certain objective realities such as food, drink, shelter, plants, animals, weather patterns, temperatures, times of year, sun, moon, planets etc, we become more aware, individually and collectively, of our resulting behavioural traits. In the light of our direct experience we can make more informed choices about our reactions to external influence rather than becoming unwitting emotional and behavioural slaves to its constant presence.


From a position of self knowledge and awareness we can't be pushed around quite so easily by those who would coerce or force us to think and behave like them. We can become more discerning, more questioning of our thoughts, words and deeds and consciously determine to offer only the behaviour that is of benefit to All, not just ourselves. This is essentially a path of respectful, compassionate love for all existence and what we like to call on these pages, Mooning.


In modern times the media have evolved as the mouthpiece of the manipulative, power hungry. Subliminally, we have bought into the incessantly piped messages about what makes a happy and successful life, most of which set unrealistically high expectations that we can never attain. In working harder to buy more and better new stuff we fall straight into the hands of those that are happy to see us disparate and disenfranchised, incapable of contesting the status quo locally, nationally or internationally because we're all so frickin' knackered.


Worse still, we're eating so much shitty, processed food that we're actually poisoning ourselves into a further disempowered, unhealthy dependence on the state. With diabetes, obesity, alcoholism and the constant spectre of debilitating consumerism and social media perfectionism now plaguing our youngest generations, even the vitality of youth and it's traditionally refreshing call for change has been effectively sapped.


The suggestion under this Sagittarius Full Moon is not to panic. It's time to breathe deep and dispassionately see things as they really are without personal judgement. It's a great weekend to take a keen look at our personal histories without allowing them to hijack the present and the future. This reviewed perspective, for which one can seek corroboration from those one loves and trusts, is an immediate position of personal strength even if societal norms might previously have led you to believe your circumstances were a complete failure. And even if there is a whole load of undesirable crap in your life, it's stuff that, from your newfound perspective, you can become more aware of and then intend to go about changing. This, very swiftly, becomes the definition of self-empowerment. It is the reclamation of your own sovereignty and inherent birthright to create your own reality. You're proper royalty dear << Test First Name >>. Rule your domain wisely.


For a couple of weeks let's see if we can ignore the papers, telly, radio, social media and watch no movies that trade predictable physical 'perfection' in their casting. Can it be done? Can a world view be challenged by our own direct, first hand experience of it? Perhaps there's a quiet place for music - of the spheres, of the wind in the trees, of rivers and brooks, of birds and bees.


Until the next new moon why not eat nothing that has not been prepared by our own hands from fresh ingredients, or at the least, foodstuffs you can recognise the providence of. Eat organic if you can. Drink filtered water and avoid liquids that have been stored in plastic bottles. Break the time poor, self imposed, self hating paradigm dear << Test First Name >> - it's what mooning is all about.


We have enough dear Mooners, more than enough.


With love 'til next time
