In the Astroshamanic Binary System, Sun in Scorpio (8) and Moon in Pisces (12) constitute Binary 8.12, or Binary number 96.
8.12 is a blend of Fixed Water and Mutable Water. The pattern Sun in Scorpio and Moon in Pisces integrates Scorpio’s intensity, depth, magnetism and passion with Pisces’s deep intuitions, imagination, compassion, healing and inspiration. 8.12 is most inspiring and imaginative, ready to surrender itself to the waves of passion and to achieve major multi-dimensional accomplishments with unbending determination.
Its creativity reaches amazing peaks and depth, benefiting from dramatic overtones and romantic fantasies. Intensely emotional and compassionate, it is a champion of empathy and dedicated healing, endowed with a profound understanding of human nature and ready to venture to the bottom of situations that trigger spiritual motivation.
All binaries terminating with 12 entail the attainment of a provisional state of unity, a blessing before returning to the binaries based on 1. 8.12 and 8.1 constitute the Scorpio multi-dimensional gateway. They include the border zone, the gap between the bona fide horny bit (the direct link with our multidimensional nature) and the consciousness diverting mechanism (the rerouting device aimed at shifting perception from multi-dimensional awareness to ordinary awareness).
The combinations involving the Moon in Pisces also resonate with the realm of dreams and fantasies, the extreme boundaries of the Third Dimension (3D). They serve the purpose of bringing awareness to the major wound separating the physical 3D world from the emotional Fourth Dimensional (4D). (see article below titled The Gap between 12 and 1).
Scorpio and Pisces are in a trine aspect (120°), which promotes an easy, balanced and mutually supporting link between the signs involved. This can bring major benefits when there is clarity of intent and focus. If this is not the case the benefits will develop unconsciously and gained by whoever holds a clear intention.
Qualities: passion, devotion, intensity, commitment, healing.
Grievances: addictions, co-dependency, conspiracy, manipulation.
This is a 8.12 First Quarter Moon occurring when the Moon in Aquarius, after being in a square (90°) with the Sun in Scorpio, moves in Pisces in a trine (120°) with the Sun. The First Quarter encompasses the time when the Moon is from 90° to 134° ahead of the Sun in Scorpio. It begins with a square, while in its last third it develops as a trine.
This phase can be very active and if the challenges of the square have worked out successfully can lead a major boost of supporting energy. This last part of the First Quarter generally brings an easy energy flow towards any Intention set on the preceding New Moon, as long as these intentions are still clear and have found expression during the preceding days. Less effort may be required to achieve results, with unexpected gifts and resources becoming available.
This is a time when we are confronted with the possibility to receive part of what was conceived during the New Moon, perhaps following challenges, obstacles or crisis, encountered during the preceding two third of the First Quarter.
At this stage the time is mature to operate with supporting forces and allowing them to work in accordance with one’s vision.
There are no foreign lands. It is the traveller only who is foreign. (R.L. Stevenson)
Astroshamanic Seal: a circle with an oblique line, representing a wand, on its top. The wand portrayed in the seal can dismantle the binary network. The Keeper of Binary said “I destroy whatever I encounter because my passion for the ultimate is total.” Upon being asked it to stop causing all this pain and disgrace, and challenged it to unveil its face and secrets, it was taken by surprise and admitted: “I am a god who acts out of fear. I tried to scare you because I am afraid of you. As a matter of fact I just needed some help.” I invited it to ask for help in that moment. It paused for a while, then it said: “Yes, I do ask you for help”. “I do help you” I replied “by inviting you to join the ocean and the whole circle. Give me a sign of your operative commitment”. Then the seal arrived.
Celebrities and places with 8.12:
Findhorn Foundation Cluny Hill (Moray, Scotland), aka Cluny Hill College, was established with Sun in Scorpio and Moon in Pisces (8.12), 17 November 1975. It is home for 35 community members, amongst whom Franco Santoro, Sverre Koxvold, Astrid Gude, and up to 90 residential guests taking part in a variety of workshops and events at Findhorn. The building is Victorian and was once a hotel that community founders Eileen and Peter Caddy and Dorothy Maclean successfully ran before the community at Findhorn was begun.
Accommodation at Cluny is comfortable and spacious, mainly in shared rooms, and the building itself has been recently retrofitted to a good ecological standard. The main building has four meeting rooms for groups and a beautiful ballroom with a sprung wooden floor, with a further two meeting spaces in the Pavilion, a separate building behind Cluny. Shared facilities and communal living at Cluny contribute towards the community’s low ecological footprint.
The gardens at Cluny are full of delightful surprises and the views across the neighbouring town golf course can be inspiring.
The Astroshamanic Healing Grid at Findhorn Foundation Cluny Hill is a major feature in astroshamanic work. It is a network of invisible lines that divide Cluny Garden and its whole territory into 12 sectors. Each sector occupies a portion of 30 degrees and corresponds to an astrological sign. The sectors move in a clockwise direction from Sector 1 (Aries), at the East point, and then downwards to Sector 2 (Taurus), Sector 3 (Gemini), Sector 4 (Cancer) and all the remaining signs.
The Astroshamanic Grid at Findhorn Foundation Cluny Hill, originally devised by Franco Santoro in 1999, has been used in thousands of events and astroshamanic workshops, and is specifically featured in some workshops held every year at the Findhorn Foundation
Behind the house are the Cluny Hill woods for walking in, while the town of Forres is a 15-minute walk away down the hill.
Workshops and events are held either at Cluny Hill or at The Park. When you are part of an Experience Week or other programme, you may be living at Cluny for the week and participating in life there, or living at The Park and participating there. Sometimes you may live at one site and join in activities at the other. The Foundation has its own minibuses to take people between sites, about 5 miles, at regular intervals during the day.
Robert Louis Stevenson, (8.12.11; Neptune Vessel) Scottish writer (1850-1894), born at 8 Howard Place, Edinburgh, on 13 November 1850, this celebrated Scottish author of fiction, travel and adventure books, has Sun in Scorpio, Moon in Pisces and Ascendant in Aquarius (8.12.11). Although he lived very shortly in his natal country and spent most of his life abroad, his passion for Scotland remain adamant and was reflected in works. His first novel was Treasure Island (with the famous chant “Fifteen men on the dead man’s chest / Yo-ho-ho, and the bottle of rum!/ Drink and the devil had done for the rest – Yo-ho-ho, and a bottle of rum!), followed by Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, which became a best-seller. This novel was partly based on Stevenson’s and W.E. Henley’s play Deacon Broadia, where an Edinburgh councilor is publicly respectable person but privately a thief and rakehell. The deacon William Brodie was actually an infamous member of the illustrious Brodies, one of the most ancient tribes of Morayshire, of which Brodie Castle (very close to Findhorn and Forres) is the seat of the clan chief.
Another Stevenson’s major work is Kidnapped. Here the protagonist (David Balfour) lands on the Scottish Island of Erraid after his shipwreck. Stevenson originally spent three months on this island whilst his father and uncle built the lighthouse in 1870. The tiny island of Erraid lies on the West coast off Mull near the island of Iona. Erraid has been the home for a small group of member of the Findhorn Foundation for over 25 years. For information on Erraid see: http://www.erraid.com/
Robert Louis Stevenson was a man of deep Scorpio contrasts, encompassing the double emotional nature of Pisces and the originality, genius, non-comformist way of Aquarius. He changed his name from Lewis to Louis, married an older and even divorced woman, wondered around the world, and was adamant in continuing his work despite his critical health. Yet he kept a strong devoted bond with his family and had a profound respect for Scottish traditions. The emphasis on binaries and opposite polarities is the major feature of Stevenson’s work. Despite the obvious Jekyll and Hyde, this is present also in The Master of Ballantrae, Kidnapped and other works. The binary nature of human beings is depicted in Kidnapped by the two protagonists (a lowland Scot and a Highlander) representing the clash between the “two Scotlands”. In The Master of Ballantrae, the two brothers, apparently good and evil, are indeed the two sides of the same coin struggling for power. For Stevenson, life was very much about struggle between forces, a struggle he was fond of and which allowed him to live his short life to the full.
But we are so fond of life that we have no leisure to entertain the terror of death. It is a honeymoon with us all through, and none of the longest. Small blame to us if we give our whole hearts to this glowing bride of ours, to the appetities, to honour, to the hungry curiosity of the mind, to the pleasure of the eyes in nature, and the pride of our own nimble bodies.
Please find below his own epitaph engraved on a tablet at his grave on Mount Vaea in Samoa, and some quotations:
Under the wide and starry sky,
Dig the grave and let me die.
Glad did I live and gladly die,
And I laid me down with a will.
This be the verse you grave for me:
Here he lies where he longed to be;
Home is the sailor, home from sea,
And the hunter home from the hill.
Don’t judge each day by the harvest you reap but by the seeds that you plant.
Everyone lives by selling something.
For God’s sake give me the young man who has brains enough to make a fool of himself!
For my part, I travel not to go anywhere, but to go. I travel for travel’s sake. The great affair is to move.
Give us grace and strength to forbear and to persevere. Give us courage and gaiety and the quiet mind, spare to us our friends, soften to us our enemies.
If we take matrimony at it’s lowest, we regard it as a sort of friendship recognised by the police.
Our business in life is not to succeed, but to continue to fail in good spirits.
So long as we love we serve; so long as we are loved by others, I would almost say that we are indispensable; and no man is useless while he has a friend.
There are no foreign lands. It is the traveller only who is foreign.
Wine is bottled poetry.
You cannot run away from weakness; you must some time fight it out or perish; and if that be so, why not now, and where you stand?
It seems as if marriage were the royal road through life, and realised, on the instant, what we have all dreamed on summer Sundays when the bells ring, or at night when we cannot sleep for the desire of living. They think it will sober and change them. Like those who join a brotherhood, they fancy it needs but an act to be out of the coil and clamour for ever. But this is a wile of the devil’s. To the end, spring winds will sow disquietude, passing faces leave a regret behind them, and the whole world keep calling and calling in their ears. For marriage is like life in this – that it is a field of battle, and not a bed of roses.
Michael Ende, (8.12.3) German writer (12 November
1929-d. 1995). Best known for his epic fantasy work The Neverending Story; other famous works include Momo and Jim Button and Luke the Engine Driver.
“When it comes to controlling human beings there is no better instrument than lies. Because, you see, humans live by beliefs. And beliefs can be manipulated. The power to manipulate beliefs is the only thing that counts.”
“Once someone dreams a dream, it can’t just drop out of existence. But if the dreamer can’t remember it, what becomes of it? It lives on in Fantastica, deep under earth. There are forgotten dreams stored in many layers. The deeper one digs, the closer they are. All Fantastica rests on a foundation of forgotten dreams.”
“You wish for something, you’ve wanted it for years, and you’re sure you want it, as long as you know you can’t have it. But if all at once it looks as though your wish might come true, you suddenly find yourself wishing you had never wished for any such thing.”
René Magritte, (Sun in Scorpio, Moon in Pisces, Ascendant in Sagittarius: 8.12.9) Belgian surrealist painter (21 November 1898-d. 1967). Known for a number of witty and thought-provoking images. His work frequently displays a collection of ordinary objects in an unusual context, giving new meanings to familiar things
It is a union that suggests the essential mystery of the world. Art for me is not an end in itself, but a means of evoking that mystery.

Nation of Helgolam
Helgolam is a remote mythic island, which was basically uncharted and out of bound in the Low and Middle Handorian Age. It was incorporated in the State of Friaan only in the third epoch (version 3) of the High Handorian Age. The island consists of two radically different parts: Outer Helgolam (the coast and the adjacent plains), Inner Helgolam (the internal mountains, plateau and caves). Twelve main caves and underground channels connect the coast with the core of Inner Helgolam, which is the capital Hum.

The Gap between 12 and 1
This strategic point of separation astrologically lies in the gap between 12 (Pisces) and 1 (Aries). Here 12 represents the climax of death in 3D linear time, with 1 representing birth. These two poles are perceived as opposites in linear time, whereas in circular spiral or conic time they are joined together, with 12 being followed by 1, death followed by birth in a continuum that allows the preservation of awareness.
Yet the current human culture appears to be in firm denial of this continuum, which is exemplified by the denial of death and its bardo, as well as the 4D. Nevertheless we continue to unconsciously move in the 4D and the bardo.
What causes pain is the fact that multi-dimensional and 4D experiences are steered to the 3D, which is regarded as the only reality. Now the 3D has extreme limitations in movement compared to 4D. In 3D only movements in space are possible. In 4D I can move also into all spheres of time, present, past and future. These times all exist simultaneously, no matter when and where I am, just like physical locations continue to exist at the same time regardless of where I am.
If I am now in Findhorn, I cannot see Göttingen, where I was a few weeks ago, and I cannot see Turin, where I will probably be in one month. Yet both Göttingen and Turin continue to exist although I am not there and, if choose to do so, I could travel and move there. In 4D the same applies to time and emotions. If I have experienced a strong emotion of love two days ago in the company of someone, the fact that today I feel miserable because that someone is not with me does not mean that the emotion of love is not there anymore. On the contrary it continues to exist somewhere else, yet this somewhere else has nothing to do with the physical 3D form, it has to do with a 4D form, which as a conventional human I may refuse to acknowledge. As a result I associate my 4D timeless experiences to 3D time-limited forms.
The limitations of 3D are quite obvious in terms of time. Everything and everyone has an inevitable date of expiry. People die, go away, change, and I also do the same. When I associate the 4D emotional level to the 3D physical sphere I am inexorably going to experience deep separation and sufferance. This sufferance continues to be recycled through the confusion between 4D and 3D, the refusal to face the bardo, and my stubbornness in holding 3D beings responsible for my 4D emotions. The first giant stride in healing implies making a strenuous and unbending effort to stop this. In order to truly relate with a 3D beings I need to be aware of the difference between my emotional projection of 4D content and the 3D reality of that person. This means that what counts in 3D are the agreements and contracts that I make with that person, and we both agree about. These define the nature of our rapport. Dreams, emotions, assumptions, fantasies do not play any role here.
It is extremely difficult to find one’s way of liberation through the bardo if I continue to feel that people have claims towards my 3D form or that I have claims on other 3D forms. Then it follows that, once in the bardo, I will feel compelled to incarnate again so as to honour such claims. The primary act of healing here is to scan and recapitulate one’s life in search of those claims, shifting from 3D to 4D, which means liberating 3D forms connected with claims and working with their 4D equivalents. For a detailed description of the topic please see: Franco Santoro, Astroshamanism: The Journey Through the Inner Universe, pp. 104-110.
Dreams are a major gateways of integration between 3D and 4D, as long as I do not identify the characters in the dreams with their 3D counterparts. A way to support this process is to employ the system of sector detectors based upon the astrological system of the derived houses,[i] These detectors, as they are met both in dreams, thoughts or in the outer reality, operate as links to specific sectors and astrological houses. They comprise virtually anyone or anything: from my closest relations up to a distant third cousin or even the dog of my neighbour and the car of my sister’s employer. The detectors are a useful device to bring awareness as regards projections and to help the mind to get acquainted with the web of life and the sectors of the Sacred Circle.
Please find herewith a significant dream I had last night. In brackets I have indicated the sector related with some of the characters. This means that astroshamanically each element of the dream refers to a specific sector and the related characteristics.
I am at a street party with friends, people and relatives. It is getting late, approaching midnight. I do not intend to stay any longer and want to leave with my car (Sector 3). My father (Sector 10) does not have a car and is supposed to get a lift from me. I realise that my father appears quite disappointed regarding my decision to leave. He was involved in a discussion with some of his friends (Sector 8). I assume that he does not want to leave and feels forced to do it because of me. In an in-between unexpected development, a maid (Sector 6) serves breakfast in the bedroom of three of my father’s friends (Sector 8). I also enter the bedroom and right after I have solemnly chanted the words “Let breakfast be served and flow on these lying beings” the maid stumbles, throwing a huge cup of white cream on the bed and on the three friends. These are quite upset and one of them says that he cannot stand my songs. I am disturbed by this comment, which finally allows me to leave. My father comes with me. I am upset for the previous episode. Yet my father appears much more upset, to the point that he begins to cry. I invite him to come close and I hold him in my arms, providing support and asking him to share what is happening. He says that he was quite hurt during the discussion he had with his friends. They made very hard comments regarding his parents, especially his father, i.e. my grandfather (Sector 7). This caused a lot of pain. He also said that he was grateful I decided to leave for he could not bear that company any longer.
What touched me here was the fact that the assumptions regarding my father wanting to continue to stay at the party were totally wrong. Indeed we both wanted to leave and it was good to do so. Also I was touched by my father’s attitude and the closeness we felt together in this communal grief.
Pahekarubhe 1: PR 281298- I walked through the astroshamanic itinerary. Then I addressed the Graha of Sector 8, asking it to cease its suffocating pressure. I invited the Guide to operate on the Graha. During the walk from Sector 8 to Sector 12 I held a wand picked up by the insignia of Sector 8. With the wand I dismantled the binary network. Once I arrived in the Sector 12 zone, I pronounced all the names of the Sadoh. This was a necessary practice. I descended in Quiumakai. There I realised that the usual cavern leads to a great ocean with playing Dolphins. Later reptilian sea creatures arrived and started to fight and destroy all the Dolphins. Then the Keeper of Binary 8.12 arrived and said “I destroy whatever I encounter because my passion for the ultimate is total.” I asked it to stop causing all this pain and disgrace, and challenged it to unveil its face and secrets. He didn’t expect my challenge. “I am a god who acts out of fear” it admits “I tried to scare you because I am afraid of you. As a matter of fact I just needed some help.” I invited it to ask for help in that moment. It paused for a while, then it said: “Yes, I do ask you for help”. “I do help you” I replied “by inviting you to join the ocean and the whole circle. Give me a sign of your operative commitment”. Then the seal arrived.
[i] The technique of derived houses consists of examining each of the 12 astrological houses as the Ascendant of a further cycle of 12 houses, making a total of 144 houses. This traditional method was introduced by Eudes Picard (see: Eudes Picard, Astrologie Judiciare, Leymarié, Paris, 1936). It has also been used by Edwin C. Steinbrecher (see: Steinbrecher, op. cit.), though with some differences in the allocation of houses.
