Passage through the Temple of the Empowered Human begins with this New Moon Solar eclipse on May 20, 2012, a date which coincides with the annual zenith passage of the Sun over the ancient Mayan city of Chichen Itza. Worthy of note is the astronomical fact that only during a 72-year time window, from 1976 to 2048, (with 2012 landing right at the center of this period) does the Pleiades star cluster join the Sun in this passage. Mayan cosmologist John Major Jenkins believes that the famous pyramid of the Feathered Serpent at Chichen was constructed to convey this cosmic knowledge to contemporary society.

Now, with the addition of the Moon to the conjunction of Sun and Pleiades, we can expect a downloading of that cosmic knowledge to the personal level of awareness which, in relation to all other planetary bodies, is what the Moon represents. This is where
The Lightning Path, based as it is in both the lunation cycle and the Tzolkin, can be most helpful for it provides a mechanism for the gradual integration of cosmic knowledge into day-to-day life.

So, in anticipation of this particular New Moon, what guidance does The Lightning Path have for us on a personal level?

This New Moon aligns with ONE CIMI. The message of unity with all Creation is obvious. Additionally, ONE refers to a clear path and to adventure. CIMI refers to death, not simply the inevitability of physical death but rather, to the death of limiting beliefs. This is the key to making the most of what this special day is presenting to us as an opportunity for life-renewal. With such a cosmic convergence such as this, those of us willing to let go of limiting beliefs, will be gifted with cosmic knowledge far beyond what we could have previously imagined, for true revelation is at hand ! However, whether or not we, ourselves, will experience revelation depends largely on how we prepare for such a rare cosmic encounter as this day of entry into the Temple of the Empowered Human presents. As our Hopi elders have called for, let it be prayerful, ceremonial and heartful!

Editor's note:

As we come to the "seed" sector of the first Moon on our mythic journey through the Temple of the Empowered Human, I share with you a quote from Dane Rudhyar. Rudhyar was born during this portion
of the lunation cycle and as we transit from ONE CAUAC to TWO MANIK, we are guided to ponder the fundamental principle of polarity at the core of all Creation. I believe Rudhyar's words are well suited to the occasion:

Astrology today is greatly conditioned by the need popular magazines have to stress above all "solar" charts and sun-sign readings. Thus we tend to forget that whatever the Sun indicates would not be practically and concretely effective in everyday life were it not for the polarizing, modifying and completing"influence" of the Moon. Life is always the result of two polar energies, masculine and feminine — solar and lunar. We never can understand and experience life truly if we stress one force at the expense of the other. Only a soli-lunar cycle can reveal to us the secrets of Nature, because all that we call "natural" is an expression of  bi-polar life-energy.

"Sex," in the ordinary sense of the term, is only one aspect of this bi-polarity of life; there are many other aspects and all these forms of interplay between the two great forces in all existence can be said to be rooted in, and maybe symbolized by, the basic relationship between Sun and Moon. When we speak, inaccurately, of the "phases of the Moon", we actually mean the phases of the cyclically evolving relationship between the two "Lights". It is not the Moon as a body which varies in size; it is the light which the Moon reflects, and this light measures the ever-changing relationship between the two polarities of life on our globe, the solar and the lunar forces. The lunation cycle, extending from one New Moon to the next, provides us with a measuring rod to ascertain the state of this soli-lunar relationship in its monthly cycle. It reveals the "rhythm" of all "natural" life processes, in our body and personality as well as in the outer world of living beings on earth.

This cycle is therefore of paramount importance, for without life there would be no embodied consciousness and no individuality. The lunation cycle should be the very foundation of any astrological interpretation of personality, as well as of health and happiness or ease of function. Thus the fact that a person is born at one phase or another of this soli-lunar cycle conditions, and often determines, his typical character; it defines the person's fundamental nature — a phrase used so much in Zen philosophy, now quite popular among members of our "intelligentsia."

You, as a particular person, were born within the span of such a cyclic process, just as inevitably as you were born during one of the four seasons of the year. Your"solar birthday" refers to this seasonal factor, but you have also a "lunation birthday" which tells you at what phase of the lunation cycle you were born.
