Binary 122
Aquarius/Taurus
7½-10° Aquarius

In the Astroshamanic Binary System, Sun in Aquarius (11) and Moon in Taurus (2) constitute Binary 11.2, or Binary number 122.

11.2 (Sun in Aquarius and Moon in Taurus) integrates fixed Air and fixed Earth blending Aquarius’s humanitarian spirit, genius, rebelliousness and originality with Taurus’s sensuality, patience, pragmatism and determination. Reliable, loyal, kind-hearted and friendly, they are deeply motivated to ground and give form to the Aquarian idealism and progressive spirit, yet mainly in a patient and relaxed way. The combination of fixed signs strengthens the will-power and a certain dosage of stubbornness.

This is a combination that inspires a multidimensional, estremely advanced and apparently most outrageous awareness of the physical world and the way all its resources are meant to be shared and managed. The higher mind and collective consciousness prevails here on the belief of private property we attach to physical possessions, including our bodies and the ordinary dynamics of human relationships. The resonance with this binary provides the insights, courage and experiential empowerment to break through the patterns of the perception of our separated bodies, allowing them to offer substantial glimpses of their multidimensional nature.

Aquarius and Taurus are in a square (90°) aspect. They are both fixed signs, holding the core essence of the direction, season and element they represent, North and East, Winter and Spring, Air and Earth respectively. They share the power to reach a climax and ground it, though their energy works at cross-purposes and this can cause significant friction. In ordinary terms these signs appear hard to integrate due to the tension they generate, and yet this same tension can provide the massive force needed for achieving most significant objectives.

first quarterWhen the Crescent Moon in Taurus forms a square or 90° angle to the Sun in Aquarius, the First Quarter or Waxing Halfmoon begins. At this active phase, the Moon moves outside the orbit of the Earth toward that of Mars. It is the right moment to act out, take initiative, step forward, go for it, and do what feels right. Here we have the possibility to choose either to be creative protagonists of our life or passive victims of events. It is a question of getting down to work, using the physical body in accordance with your Intent, stirring the energy, not of thinking or visioning. The question is: “What do I do right now to set in motion my Intent?” The key here is not indulging on the answer, and simply do it.

John Donne born on 21 January 1572–Sun Aquarius, Moon Taurus, died 31 March 1631, English poet, satirist, lawyer, and priest (11.2), considered the pre-eminent representative of the metaphysical poets. His works are noted for their strong, sensual style and include sonnets, love poems, religious poems, Latin translations, epigrams, elegies, songs, satires and sermons. His poetry is noted for its vibrancy of language and inventiveness of metaphor, especially compared to that of his contemporaries. Donne’s style is characterised by abrupt openings and various paradoxes, ironies and dislocations.

Donne lived in poverty for several years, relying heavily on wealthy friends. He spent much of the money he inherited during and after his education on womanising, literature, pastimes, and travel. In 1601, Donne secretly married Anne More, with whom he had twelve children. In 1615, he became an Anglican priest, although he did not want to take Anglican orders. He did so because King James I persistently ordered it. In 1621, he was appointed the Dean of St Paul’s Cathedral in London. He also served as a member of Parliament in 1601 and in 1614.

He wrote secular poems as well as erotic poems and love poems. John Donne is commemorated as a priest in the calendar of the Church of England and in the Calendar of Saints of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America on 31 March.

Several historical novels describe various episodes in Donne’s life:  Elizabeth Gray Vining’s Take Heed of Loving Me: A novel about John Donne (1963), Maeve Haran’s The Lady and the Poet (2010)., Mary Novik’s Conceit (2007), Garry O’Connor’s Death’s Duel: a novel of John Donne (2015), which deals with the poet as a young man, Christie Dickason’s The Noble Assassin (2012), Brian Crockett’s Love’s Alchemy: a John Donne mystery (2015), in which the poet is recruited into the secret service to foil the Gunpowder Plot. Musical settings:  John Cooper (“The Message”); Henry Lawes (“Break of Day”); “ John Dowland (“Break of Day” and “To ask for all thy love”); and settings of “A Hymn to God the Father” by John Hilton the younger and Pelham Humfrey (1688), Havergal Brian (“A nocturnal on St Lucy’s Day”, Eleanor Everest Freer (“Break of Day”), Walford Davies (“The Cross”, 1909) among the earliest.  “Go and Catch a Falling Star” on John Renbourn’s album John Renbourn (1966) in which the last line is altered to “False, ere I count one, two, three”. In 2009, Jennifer Higdon composed the choral piece On the Death of the Righteous based on Donne’s sermons. Anton Batagov’s “ I Fear No More, selected songs and meditations of John Donne” (2015).

Death is an ascension to a better library.

Be thine own palace, or the world’s thy jail

No man is an island, entire of itself; every man is a piece of the continent, a part of the main; if a clod be washed away by the sea, Europe is the less, as well as if a promontory were, as well as if a manor of thy friends or of thine own were; any man’s death diminishes me, because I am involved in mankind; and therefore never send to know for whom the bell tolls; it tolls for thee.

Rasputin’s vision of Our Lady of Kazan turned him towards the life of a religious mystic. By 1900, he was identified as a strannik, a religious wanderer, visiting holy places on foot and exchanging teaching for hospitality. His interpretations of the Scriptures were so keen and so original that even learned churchmen liked to listen to them.

Eckhart Tolle (born in Dortmund, Germany,on February 16, 1948) German-born resident of Canada, known as the author of The Power of Now (1997) and A New Earth: Awakening to your Life’s Purpose. In 2011, he was listed by Watkins Review as the most spiritually influential person in the world.  Tolle has said that he was depressed for much of his life until he underwent, at age 29, an “inner transformation”.

I couldn’t live with myself any longer. And in this a question arose without an answer: who is the ‘I’ that cannot live with the self? What is the self? I felt drawn into a void! I didn’t know at the time that what really happened was the mind-made self, with its heaviness, its problems, that lives between the unsatisfying past and the fearful future, collapsed. It dissolved. The next morning I woke up and everything was so peaceful. The peace was there because there was no self. Just a sense of presence or “beingness,” just observing and watching.

He then spent several years wandering “in a state of deep bliss” before becoming a spiritual teacher.

A true spiritual teacher does not have anything to teach in the conventional sense of the word, does not have anything to give or add to you, such as new information, beliefs, or rules of conduct. The only function of such a teacher is to help you remove that which separates you from the truth … The words are no more than signposts.

His books sold an estimated three million and five million copies respectively in North America by 2009. In 2008, approximately 35 million people participated in a series of 10 live webinars with Tolle and television talk show host Oprah Winfrey. Tolle is not identified with any particular religion, but he has been influenced by a wide range of spiritual works. He has lived in Vancouver, British Columbia since 1995.

Tolle writes that religions “have become so overlaid with extraneous matter that their spiritual substance has become almost completely obscured”, that they have become “to a large extent … divisive rather than unifying forces” and become “themselves part of the insanity”.

The primary cause of unhappiness is never the situation but your thoughts about it.

In A New Earth, Tolle describes a major aspect of the human dysfunction as “ego” or an “illusory sense of self” based on unconscious identification with one’s memories and thoughts, and another major aspect he calls “pain-body” or “an accumulation of old emotional pain”.

Tolle often talks about the relevance of figures in intellectual or popular culture. He quotes Descartes, Sartre, Nietzsche, Shakespeare and Albert Einstein, of movies such as Groundhog Day, American Beauty, The Horse Whisperer, Gran Torino, Titanic, Avatar, Being There, and Forrest Gump, and musicians such as Mozart, The Beatles and The Rolling Stones. He arranged an album of music in 2008 entitled Music to Quiet the Mind including work composed by Erik Satie, Claude Debussy and The Beatles, and music by contemporary artists such as Deva Premal, Jeff Johnson, and Steve Roach.

State of Yukal
Land of Veridhano

This nation was originally a State (State of Veridhan) and, besides the current Land of Veridhano, it included the Land of Hardark and the coast East of Hardark, currently in the State of Vanjuli. After the incorporation of the State of Muolliz in the Handorian States System, the State of Veridhan merged with the State of Yukal. The nation is entirely located on the Handorian continent, in the western area of the State of Yukal, bordering the State of Brento, with which the Land of Veridhano has many similarities. The capital is Lord Veridhano, whose main squad is Libero. Other relevant cities are Lord Ludio, Yell of Litigo, Levatio, Leno, Lalito, Layo, Yatro and Lord Lego.

Veridhano holds a very noble status in the Handorian States System for it sets the basic conditions for the quantum leap which led to the creation of the latest version of the Game. Its choice to become a Nation and release its State condition, so as to allow the emergence of Muolliz, provived an unprecedented model of unifying consciousness at a space-time of intense crisis.

Handorian Names: Lalito (lovely), Layo (dissolved), Yatro (traveller), Yoko (child of light).
