moon

Since so many asked, here's a very limited explanation of why that chart's so cool.

Before I start, I think I should mention that I don't take astrology as truth (that daily stuff is laughable), but inspection of a chart carefully created with one's birthtime and place has always revealed to me something worth thinking about. Your mileage may vary.

OK, here's a very limited explanation of this chart:

So both the planets' locations and their interrelation make this a highly unusual chart.

Every planet, every house, every conjunct, every sextile, every trine and every square has meaning. To elaborate on every one of them here would take hours. To try to describe how the meanings all affect each other could take days (erm, considering that I'm not that terribly skilled at chart reading, make that years). Suffice it to say that this is a highly unusual chart in many ways.

And it makes for a keen eight (the number of repayment of karma and of evolution), and infinity symbol, too.

FIGURE EIGHT

Figure eight, as double four.
Figure four, as half of eight.
If you skate, you would be great,
If you could make a figure eight.
That's a circle that turns 'round upon itself.

One times eight is two times four.
Four times four is two times eight.
If you skate upon thin ice,
You'd be wise, if you looked twice
Before you made another single move.

Figure eight, as double four.
Figure four, as half of eight.
If you skate, you would be great,
If you could make a figure eight.
That's a circle that turns 'round upon itself.

Place it on its side and it's a symbol meaning infinity.

Note to self: In future months, spend some time ruminating on the kabalah, astrology, and the symbology in the tarot that binds them together. Also, read Patrick's books cover to cover.
