Location, etc. — Part II

So yesterday, I posted a bit about Locational Astrology: this is the subset of Astrology which puts forth the notion that even as the time and place of our births helps to determine how the array of Planet-represented energies will fall within each of us as individual beings, so, too, can we use the same principles to suss out which places around the globe can have special meaning and hold special power for us (or which ones may even hold a decided lack of special meaning and/or power for us!).  Yesterday, I was just kind of talking a bit about what Locational Astrology is in general, and why it appeals to me as a concept.  Last night, I realized I have enough additional thought on the topic at present to fuel two more “sequel posts”…so today will be the first of those.  It’s aimed at quickly explaining how I had a “Eureka!” moment about Locational Astrology and me, while driving over to a friend’s place in the evening yesterday.  Tomorrow’s post will be focused on a very specific example drawn from my own past that highlights just how intensely accurate, and intensely powerful, these principles can actually be when put into practice (stay tuned for that one!)…

What happens uniquely for you, astrologically speaking, at different points around the globe...?

So back to the “Eureka!” moment I had yesterday after I headed downtown to meet my friend.  It was a two-parter, with a double-wallop…

First, I was reminded that back on the 14th of this month, I’d had a rather vivid dream, one that seemed meaningful enough that I even posted about it here in this very blog.  It involved me and a small group of other people all gathered around a convergence of a couple of Lines of Power flowing through the area.  In the dream, one of the people there with me even offered the opinion that so powerful were these Lines, that if we could stand at exactly the right point along them, or at a juncture where two or more of them met, we might be so energized that we’d be literally transformed — gifted with actual super-powers.  The young fantasist and comic book freak in me loved this notion, and was a bit saddened to have found exactly such a juncture-point and positioned myself atop it in the dream, but then been jolted awake before I could realize that super-powered apotheosis, and see what kind(s) of super-powers I might be granted…

At that point in time, though, when I had that dream, and when I posted about it here, I hadn’t yet ever seen for myself the kind of map that locational astrologers use when examining a person’s global potentials with respect to the aforementioned distribution of places that resonate powerfully and positively for us, versus places that don’t resonate much at all, versus places that seem to actually resonate in harsh or detrimental ways…  Two days, ago, though, I beheld my first examples of these types of maps…and it then suddenly occurred to me last night that the maps detail *EXACTLY* the kinds of Lines of Power that I’d been dreaming about a week and a half before!!  This tells me that maybe — just maybe — this area of study will have very special meaning for me…

And then the second part of that one-two “Eureka!” punch…  This one also involves a dream.  I wish I’d posted about this one here, too, but I neglected to do so at the time, so you’ll hopefully be willing to accept my word that I dreamed what I’m about to say, and that I dreamed it when I say I dreamed it (i.e., also predating my first glimpses of any Locational Astrology maps)…

In this dream — which occurred on the night of October 9th (even before the one about positioning myself atop Lines of Power) — I was standing in a snowfall at night.  The snow was coming down fairly vigorously, although I wasn’t suffering from the chill.  As I stood and gazed out into the white-speckled dark, a very large butterfly appeared from out of the blackness between snowflakes, and hovered before me.  Now, I spent the first half of my life growing up in areas that do in fact entertain such vigorous snowfalls as this, and while I won’t presume to speak for the entirety of the Butterfly Nation, I will say that in my own humble experience, I never saw a single butterfly hang around even far into Autumn, much less into the dead of Winter — like many birds, lots of insects seem to make themselves very scarce once the weather develops its first touches of frost.  So, even in this dream, I was aware that the appearance of a large butterfly, at night, in wintertime, in the middle of a not insignificant wave of snowfall, was a rather noteworthy event.  What was even more unusual and noteworthy — downright remarkable, even — was the fact that instead of regular butterfly wings (if butterfly wings can be trivialized by use of the term “regular”…), this particular butterfly had wings that looked exactly like large, perfectly proportioned, wing-shaped sections that had been cut out by some skilled hand…from maps of some kind.

!!!!

And the butterfly, like I said, hovered there in the dark, snowy air before me for quite a few beats of its cartographic wings, and then I awoke.  At the time, I had no special meanings I could attach to certain aspects of the dream — I tend to look at such things from a perspective of “Animal Spirits,” and “What does a butterfly appearing in a dream mean to me…??”  The part about the wings being somehow cut from maps seemed intriguing, but I didn’t dwell on it as much as I might have…until last night.  As I said, while I was driving downtown, I first flashed on the Lines of Power dream and connected it to the concept of Locational Astrology, a big grin already blooming across my face…and then on the heels of that association, the butterfly-with-maps-for-wings dream popped into my head as well, and my dawning grin turned into an actual, vocal exclamation of surprise and pleasure (good thing my windows were up, or people might have been a bit alarmed…).

Imagine this butterfly about nine times larger, and with wings cut from mysterious maps of some kind...

So anyway…yes, I believe my own dreams were putting me on notice of the importance that this whole Locational Astrology field might hold for me.  And I certainly do aim to press onward in exploring it!

Tomorrow, then: one more post in this area, this one about that specific example I mentioned of me once unknowingly traveling to the vicinity of one of these “Lines of Power”…and having exactly the kind of manifestation that it would predict, in fact coming to pass, and in a big, big way!…
