Electric Moon

To dream of a lodestone denotes favorable opportunities for advancement, it is an omen of happy changes.

My Neptune (rules dreams) is in the 11th house, the natural house of Aquarius – ruled by Uranus, which rules magnetics and lightning.
Lodestones are magnetic, said to be naturally magnetized by lightning strike.
The moon is full in Aquarius, the sign of inventors, humanitarians and forward- thinkers.

~~~~~~~~~
Now for some progressive astro science ~> Uranus rules science and astrology !
An iron core inserted into a solenoid (wire coil with electric current running through it) can multiply the magnetic field in the solenoid by a factor of tens, even thousands.  *

So I’ve been giving lots of attention to what I am magnetically attracting via my Mars (rules iron) trine from the 11th to the 3rd house of thinking.

Mars needs to lead and Uranus isn’t a follower, but in my case they are working together (Mars Quintile -spiritual gifts- Uranus) on a path of spiritual freedom and exploration.

~~~~~~~~~~~
I also have the magnetic Sun conjunct Uranus (rules magnetics) so I keep an eye on the solar cycles and any activity on the surface of the sun.  The picture above is a X6.9 flare 4 days ago.  The most powerful flare measured with modern methods was in 2003, during the last solar maximum, and it was so powerful that it overloaded the sensors measuring it. The sensors cut out at X28. *

I have read that some sensitive to solar activity can be more likely to have seiziures, dizziness, or disrupted sleep during heightened solar geomagnetic storms.
I experienced some slight dizziness during the last one, but as far as I’m conerned, the jury’s still out.  Did you feel anything ?

Uranus rules vision, magnetics and birds.  In the late 1970s, the physicist Klaus Schulten concluded that birds navigate by relying on geomagnetically sensitive biochemical reactions in their eyes, specifically, the protein cryptochrome. *

I have a very good sense of direction…where is your Uranus and how is your sense of direction..?  I am curious.   (Uranus rules curiosity)

Uranus also rules sensitive skin and conjunct Sun, I am prone to sunstroke…especially at high altitudes, and I tend to be a bit high-strung as Uranus rules the nervous system.

Aquarius is an air (communication) sign, but known as the water-bearer.
It is a fixed sign, yet totally unpredictable.

Uranus can be fabulous highly charged eccentric ideas coming in flash twinges of intuition ( I knew I would own the house I presently live in when my foot- Neptune rules the feet- touched the driveway) or it can be erratic shocking shakedowns coming out of nowhere that cause a change in perspective in an instant.

Neptune rules humming (probably why I heard the Taos hum) and Aquarius rules birds.  I could tell you a story about how my Neptune squares from Scorpio to Leo (rules the heart) can be wrapped up in a tiny little bird with a heart rate that can reach up to 1260 beats in a minute….but I won’t.  That’s my 8th house of secrets, I’ll just say I have learned to regenerate and that’s all the Mercury Rx ‘pay dirt’ you’re gonna get.

Hum a few bars

Ahhh…The Look.  You know the one…the look you get when you speak something Not of Status Quo, the look generally followed by a chuckle + eye roll.  Perhaps the odd bit pops out of your mouth in polite conversation about : astrology, aliens, crystals, crop circles or in my case today~ the Taos Hum.  The curious Uranian blurt followed by knowing glances around the room.  Yes.  I am, once again, safe in the knowledge that I have raised the freak flag in the academic crowd; aka the weirdo in the room just stood up.
I have heard the Taos Hum and here is my story…
I was planning on driving the enchanted circle after leaving Taos heading home toward Eagle Nest Lake along the river on my way to 64 East to Cimmaron.  I had driven this route before and fell in love…it is a winding road that follows the river on the south side with bluffs on the north; trees and forest lush on both sides.  There is a little Buddhist monastery tucked up in the bluffs too, and as you can see by the map, that’s not all.

I was stopped at the crossroads fiddling with my ipod -[must have road-worthy tunes for one of the best drives in the country]- when, it occurred to me my truck seemed really loud, even for my old Dodge.  So I put it in park and got out to look at the rear chassis.  Nothing out of the ordinary.  hmm…?…  So I climb back in and I hear it again…a very low register, but very loud, wave-like humming sound.  Ok, my truck had a lotta miles this trip: Colorado mountain top festival in the 14ers, Arches, Grand Canyon,  Monument Valley, Barringer Crater, Zuni Pueblo, Santa Fe, Taos…and that was only this vacation.  I have driven my truck coast to coast and I know how it sounds.  So this time I turned my truck off…and could still hear it.
Then I sit and wait for the dump truck hauling rock that I am sure will be appearing from around the bend anytime now.   ….nope.  All Alone.   Me, my silent parked truck, and The Hum.

I finally gave up, after several trips around the vehicle, knowing my truck sounded fine when I climbed out of it to hear it, and I had places to go.  ( Like the worst bathroom in the US- Cimmaron- fair warning- skip it !)
In case you are ever near Taos and want to try a ‘hearing the humming’ experiment…I was parked at the crossroads near the star marked Taos.
~~~~~~~~~~~~
Ok, so now a bit about The Hum~ the sound registers louder to the people who hear it while they are inside a structure than if they are outside a structure; standing in the yard, it can’t be heard.   The noise has driven nearby residents to petition Congress.  In 1993 residents asked the government to help locate the source of the disturbance, to no avail.  Some who are routinely subjected to the sound feel symptoms such as: dizziness, insomnia, disorientation, pressure on the ears, and headaches.  Among several theories of what causes the hum :  Infrasound, audible electro-magnetic earth frequencies, or the echo of undetected seismic activity.
Strangely, only 2% of Taos residents are able to hear the hum.  *When recorded by a Denver audiologist, the hum was a steady vibration of 17 cycles per second with a harmonic rising to 70 cycles per second near Taos. The low range of human hearing is 20 to 30 cycles per second. (Aquiziam.com)*  Similar humming sounds have been reported in the UK and New Zealand.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Astrologically, I am thinking my Sun conjunct Uranus and biggie Neptune in 11th aspecting Toro Moon feels the vibrations ~ Saturn trine Mars on the 12th sign is getting the hidden dial tuned into the Earth.  ? shrug ?
What do you think..?
