Solfeggio Harmonics

I think this is probably a Neptune in Aquarius thing: music for healing rediscovered for a new age; I hadn't heard of Solfeggio Harmonics till just recently, but according to this website:

the original sound frequencies were used in Ancient Gregorian Chants, such as the great hymn to St. John the Baptist, along with others that church authorities say were lost centuries ago. The chants and their special tones were believed to impart tremendous spiritual blessings when sung in harmony during religious masses. These powerful frequencies were rediscovered by Dr. Joseph Puleo as described in the book Healing Codes for the Biological Apocalypse by Dr. Leonard Horowitz.
The Six Solfeggio Frequencies include:

UT – 396 Hz – Liberating Guilt and Fear
RE – 417 Hz – Undoing Situations and Facilitating Change
MI – 528 Hz – Transformation and Miracles (DNA Repair)
FA – 639 Hz – Connecting/Relationships
SOL – 741 Hz – Awakening Intuition
LA – 852 Hz – Returning to Spiritual Order

For example, the third note, frequency 528, relates to the note MI on the scale and derives from the phrase "MI-ra gestorum" in Latin meaning "miracle." Stunningly, this is the exact frequency used by genetic biochemists to repair broken DNA – the genetic blueprint upon which life is based.

I don't understand all that to be honest, but it's an interesting read; anything that stresses the importance of energy and vibration and wavelengths is ok with me (and it's oh so Aquarius, I feel, that squiggly symbol of Aquarius and the idea of wavelengths). There's lots of examples on YouTube of this music, which is uber relaxing and has the most fabulous images to go with it, and I can recommend the Source Vibrations album as pretty much the best music I've heard to use in healing sessions. There's definately something about this stuff that goes beyond it being just sweet and soothing. Here's an example of the relationships one, the 639Hz, have some of this to heal your frazzled nerves:

Solar Eclipse In Capricorn Jan 15th 2010

Eclipses are BIG signposts in astrology; big neon flashing signposts that shout ‘this is the way forward!’ Eclipses tend to happen two at a time, within a couple of weeks of each other (during New Years Eve we had a lunar eclipse in Capricorn, and now we’ve got the solar eclipse two weeks later to make the matching pair), and eclipses also happen twice a year, within about six months of each other. On top of that, they cycle through different signs of the zodiac over a period of about 19 years.

Each sign that the eclipses fall in can indicate the way forward through current life challenges because each sign has a particular way of approaching life; each sign has its own way of going about things and responding to problems and challenges, so whatever sign you are, and whatever it is you are personally going through (and eclipses do tend to stir up quite a bit of stuff that can stay relevant for months to come sometimes), these January eclipses are indicating a call for a Capricorn-esque response.

So what’s the underlying essence of the rumblings and stirrings that current situations have been bringing to your attention over the past few weeks? Eclipses are about moon cycles, and the moon rules emotions and feelings; so it’s about the emotions (usually negative at first) that situations are putting you in touch with - Powerlessness? Frustration? Overwhelment? For example, As I write this, the UK (whose sun-sign is Capricorn), is under an unusually heavy blanket of snow and ice. Collectively we’re all feeling the frosty pinch of popular Capricorn emotional metaphors: we’re all feeling a bit snowed under; a bit under the weather, a bit overwhelmed, a bit powerless against outside forces. We’re feeling a bit put in our place by the authority of the elements. It’s all very Capricorn, and it’s all very magnified, in that way that eclipses have about them.

But like I said earlier, just as eclipses stir up the kind of stuff very much associated with the sign they fall in, they also how they point to the way through it all: this is the flashing neon signpost that answers the question ‘how do I get through this eclipse stuff’ with ‘do it the Capricorn way’. Which means in its most positive sense Capricorn is a sign aware of current limits while not feeling defeated about future ambitions. It’s a sign that can look long-term, plays the long game by taking things step by step, and knows that day by day those steps mount up to something solid in structure.

Capricorn is very much aware of time, and like Old Father Time (a key symbol of the Capricorn season), is aware of its own mortality and therefore the temporary nature of all situations. Surrendering to the authority of time and trusting that all things happen in good time, turns out to be a potent stress reliever too; so basically, rather than being buffeted by overwhelming thoughts of the impassable, impossible limits of today, the Capricorn eclipse emotional rescue remedy is to quietly keep in mind that just like the heaviest of winter snow, in the grand scheme of things, ‘this too shall pass’.

January Horoscopes

Happy 2010 :)

21st March – 20th April

It’s quite a trip for Aries at the mo, what with your ruler Mars on a return to the past in matters of the heart, and a gathering of planets piling on pressure in the aims and ambitions section of your chart, as well as a rather significant solar eclipse there on the 15th. It means that plans, especially career plans, are right at the forefront of your agenda and current events are reflecting that too. Because the nature of a solar eclipse is to frame a new emotional landscape for the coming months, whatever is happening this month is going to drive events and shape your attitude to them, for some time to come.

21st April – 21st May

There’s a solar eclipse on the 15th, in the beliefs and perspectives angle of your chart, which means events are making you consider and evaluate your views on life, love and the universe more strongly. As there’s been other planets active at this angle too for a while, it’s likely that this has held importance one way or the other for some time now, and possibly a process of reviewing outdated beliefs (about yourself especially) has already got underway, but as the new year gets going there’s no better time to start believing in yourself in a whole new way.

22nd May – 21st June

Your ruler Mercury is moving forward again, symbolising a positive turning point or turnaround for you in current situations and this is happening during an important solar eclipse around the 15th. Eclipses are like scene setters; they focus and amplify energy to point to themes that will weave through events for months to come. This one falls in the area of your chart linked to trust, and it’s really only about trusting yourself even when it seems others are part of the equation. In other words, trust that it can’t hurt to let go of what you can’t control.

22nd June – 22nd July

There’s a solar eclipse on the 15th; eclipses are always important in astro symbolism but especially so for Cancer, as your ruling planet is the moon and you have a special affinity with the wax and wane of those lunar cycles. This eclipse has extra significance too as it’s happening in your house of relationships, indicating turning points, turnarounds, beginnings, endings, and all sorts of meaningful events unfolding regarding relationships, partnerships, contracts and commitments, and what is meaningful during January seems to stay that way for months to come.

23rd July – 23rd August

2010 kicks off with a significant solar eclipse in the problem-solving angle of your chart on the 15th. Problems might seem to be amplified around that point, but it also means that solutions are there too. Eclipses are energy amplifiers, which is why things seem bigger and louder, but the process for solution-seeking is the same for both mountains and molehills, which is to keep focused on where you want to go rather than the issue itself; and to help catch your attention there’s some fabulous full moon energy on the 30th, when desire planet Mars meets love goddess Venus right in your relationship chart.

24th August – 22nd September

Eclipses set up dominant themes for the coming months and there’s a solar eclipse on the 15th that takes place in the matters of the heart angle of your chart. Which means there’s important events on the way circling around romance, creativity, fun, or whatever else it is that makes your heart soar. Eclipses can indicate big turning points in direction, and as your ruling planet Mercury is going through a change of direction at the same time, looking forward instead of looking back, it can mean 2010 gets off to a significant start.

23rd September – 23rd October

Saturn, planet of authority and rules, has been in your sign for a few months now, which means you’ve had time to get used to being the boss, or better said, a law unto yourself. Saturn turns retrograde (appears to move backwards) midmonth, which always means a turnaround in your approach to situations, as well as gaining different perspectives. There’s also the idea of reconstructing or reviewing your past, especially around solar eclipse time on the 15th, when the sun and moon meet in the angle ruling memories and feelings. Being comfy with yourself has never felt so important.

24th October – 22nd November

A solar eclipse on the 15th is happening in the communication angle of your chart. Eclipses are sort of culmination points of energy, where events unfold that can have long lasting effects, sometimes ending up as being profound developments in direction when viewed with hindsight. Your ruler Pluto meets communication planet Mercury here too, indicating a turnaround in situations where information or getting the message across is your priority; meanwhile co-ruler Mars is moving your focus back to basics in the long-term plans section of your chart, and what better time of the year to do so?

23rd November – 21st December

Your ruling planet, Jupiter, is switching signs this month. For the past year there’s been an emphasis on your communication and getting the message across in situations, then from the 18th the focus moves to comfort zones, so till 2011 it’s about stretching and expanding them. Emotional attachments, home and hearth, it’s all going to figure highly in the unfolding of events. There’s also a big solar eclipse on the 15th, in the finance and property angle of your chart. Things happen around solar eclipses that have long lasting emotional effects (though sometimes the benefits are only seen with hindsight).

22nd December – 20th January

Big start to the year for Cap, with an important solar eclipse in your sign on the 15th, as well as your ruler Saturn going retrograde (appearing to move backward) around the same time, until May. Saturn does this every year, and it symbolises a sort of restructuring process going on wherever Saturn is in your chart, at the moment this is your house of longterm plans and ambitions. Meanwhile the solar eclipse sets the tone of future events: whatever is going around that time (say a week either way of the 15th) can reverberate through situations somehow for months, even years to come.

21st January – 18th February

The solar eclipse on the 15th is important because whatever happens around an eclipse seems to stay significant for ages. For you the eclipse is working its energy in a kind of unconscious way, so keep a dream diary handy at night, and go with the flow of daydreaming and see where you keep ending up. The sun moves into your sign from the 20th, which again is a perspective enhancer, as is the full moon on the 30th, falling in the relationship zone of your chart; Venus is meeting Mars there, so opposites are attracting all over the place.

19th February – 20th March

Jupiter, planet of abundance and upliftment, starts a yearlong journey through your sign from the 18th. Pisces has a strong affinity with Jupiter so the vibes are good and easy from the start; doors that were closed in situations start to open, including those doors of perception, so expect changes in the way you’ve been seeing things to start happening, for the better. Just before that, on the 15th, there’s a solar eclipse in the hopes and dreams angle of your chart. This is the best time ever to sort some New Year resolutions and start living them.
