I've called this subject, Your Emergency Preparedness Kit, over at the astrology weekly site where in the follow was posted today...of which, I have 'clipped' and 'pasted' it here. As follows...
...I'm really 'under the weather today', but I've been feeling 'something' today that is prodding me like...like...well, I don't know how to describe it.
Interesting note on this is that I was corresponding with member I'mnotthere this morn about these Lots/Parts as His curiosity was piqued yesterday when I told him how long I had been working on this little pet project and had given my own 3 of these Lots as an example. I have been noticing a mysterious odor that comes and goes these last few days while i've been at my desk working with this...while in chat with I'mnotthere he suddenly remarked about a mysterious odor in his room...and described it just as i recognize it as...I'm in Calif. and He's in Ireland...go figure...[A Sign!]
To make this easier on me I'm copying and pasting what I wrote world renowned astrologer and Sabain Authority, Lynda Hill, about this this morning...it's taken out of context but I'm sure you guys can follow it...
.... I do want to remark that his one line in the song that said, "...no one heard the bugle call..." [or something close to that] that it gives me another prod to bring up a subject on Hermetic Lots that I've been wanting to bring to everyones attention but have been hesitant as I still want to gather some more evidence/examples from other natal charts. I guess I'll spend this morning and afternoon on that and try to have something posted by this eve...definitely by Sunday night. I only started working with the so called Hermetic Lots this past year [and the Part of Hyleg...Oh My !] and the Sabian Symbolism I got for three of them; my Lots of Necessity, Courage and Victory struck me as what I would describe as a 'Mission Directive' [like a briefing before a military operation] as to what I've come to know myself to be and those endeavors I'm involved with that are of essential contribution [to the degree as great or as small as my contribution has of any potential to be of importance or need] to those qualities and endeavors that are of matters of spiritual and societal integrity. I've done about a half dozen of natal charts of those of my closest friends that are of the most spiritually oriented of who that I would identify as being 'Rainbow Warriors'...militiapersons of the 'LIGHT' Brigade...ifyaknowhatimean.
[2nd post to Lynda]
I'll give you mine Lynda, and I think you'll see what I'm getting at here...as I believe you know me just about well enough by now to see this as near startling conspicuous as I did when I first saw them myself just a couple/few months ago...[and added to those I've produced for those 'Rainbow Knights' I mention...it's actually almost stupefying...which is why I've been hesitant about writing anything as to this to date...What I've seen so far, I think is so profound that I keep saying to myself that I must be over thinking this...taking my own self, as a person, as an astrologer, 2012 and this stuff way too serious and....?
alas...I guess I had just best just give you my Lots' and you look at them. Then calculate your own [if you've never worked with these 'Lots' before] or if you already know them I urge you to look at the symbolism again and do the 3 Hermetic Lots I mention for those friends of your own that you would classify as like the friends of mine, that I described, and tell me...if you don't see anything happening like what I've been getting at here...Please let me know...so I can move on to something worthwhile...but if you do, then definitely let me know and I'm going to be blowing my own 'Bugle' ...and quite loudly.
My Hermetic Lot of Necessity is 14* Pisces 12', Courage is 08* Aquarius 04' and Victory is 07* Pisces 13'...and you know what that one is [pardon the Rudhyar here but it is so handy to copy and paste]
" A GIRL BLOWING A BUGLE.
KEYNOTE: A call to participation in the service of the race, as an evolutionary crisis approaches."
...see what I'm talking about? [I'm dying to know what yours are..but, I realize that's very personal...it's just some fascinating and captivating for these last few months every time I study another persons chart and these Lots and get another demonstration of this...it's so personally validating and uplifting...I am so apprehensive that this is just too good to be true...that it's coincidence, my own naive optimism...?
So, to fill this out...my Part of Necessity @ the 15th of Pisces
[ibid.] "AN OFFICER INSTRUCTING HIS MEN BEFORE A SIMULATED ASSAULT UNDER A BARRAGE OF LIVE SHELLS.
KEYNOTE: The need for thorough rehearsing before any complex and inherently dangerous social ritual in which power is used or evoked.
....In social life, as well as occultism, conflict is always to be expected; one must prepare for it. At the close of the great cycle — in the zodiac, the sign Pisces — a deep-seated struggle is inevitable at least to some extent. ... The rules of the game, at least in traditional forms of warfare, can be known. One may have to rehearse the dangerous play... Individual rashness cannot be tolerated....
..... A concluding Keyword could be VALORIZATION. The concept of group-value dominates the entire scene."
[and Lot of Courage] [ibid.]
(AQUARIUS 9°):" A FLAG IS SEEN TURNING INTO AN EAGLE.
KEYNOTE: The dynamic incorporation of new social values in individuals who exemplify the spiritual potential and greatest significance of these values....
I urge each of you to find yours...learn them...know them...live them, if you believe in them and find that you are in need of such...
