In this posting several issues are going to be addressed.
1) The ‘Goethe’ Conscious Awareness profile relative to Anita Moorjani’s Advanced chart for admission to the hospital in a coma will be shared and commented upon.
2) The Advanced ‘Hospital Admission’ chart will be compared to the ‘Diagnosis’ Advanced chart four years earlier.
3) What happened after her miraculous recovery will be addressed.
The Green Snake Retold blog site was inspired by Johann Wolfgang von Goethe’s own experiences and his later-in-life fairy tale, The Green Snake and the Beautiful Lily. His fairy tale was a more publically accessible version of his and his close friend’s (Schiller) conception of how man could gain conscious awareness and realize his soul-self’s life purpose. This would lead to a better world. These same ideals are as valid today as they were in 1794. The charts of Goethe’s own experiences formed the basis for my creation of an astrological ‘profile’ by which I intended to explore other such conscious-awareness events of people in our current lifetime.
I am pleased to say that Anita Moorjani’s NDE experience and her changed life following that event perfectly fits with Goethe’s profile and the profiles of other reviewed earlier on this blog site. Let us look again at her Advanced chart for Feb. 2, 2006 when she was taken to the hospital, in a coma, her body full of tennis-ball sized tumors, her organs failing.
This ‘Hospital Admission’ Advanced chart (above) can be used relative to the tabulated Goethe Profile listing below.
Anita’s t/Moon-to-n/Sun Return had occurred one day earlier on Feb. 1st, 2006, the Sun was in the fifth house. In spite of her progressed illness and great weakness, she was very upbeat that day. Overnight her body just collapsed upon itself, Her condition was unresponsive for the most part the next day. She was rushed to the hospital and initial examinations indicated a severely hopeless situation. Her wasted condition was obvious, her organs were shutting down, the doctors expected her to transition at any moment.
While the doctors and family were in acute despair, Anita was conscious within herself, aware of her surroundings and beginning her entry into a profound spiritual experience. She came out of her coma the following day and her body was already showing signs of a sudden recovery. In those few hours, represented by the Feb. 2nd, 2006 Advanced chart, Anita gained a new vision of what life should be, a vision that ‘healed’ her body so that she could live and demonstrate that vision of life that she had gained.
The ‘Profile’ tells the astrologers among us a clear story. For those who are not yet capable astrologers or who have limited knowledge of astrology, I will offer a narrative covering this profile. The profile merely shows common astrological characteristics of charts cast for people at the moment of crises and the gaining of conscious awareness.
The Sun, normally symbolizing one’s character and intentions in life, also spiritually represents our own spiritual body or soul-self consciousness. In this Advanced chart, the transiting Sun is in the 4th house (segment at the bottom of the chart) which represents the start of things and the end of things. Here, Anita’s spiritual self both ended its prior belief structures and adopted new, healthy-aligned structures. The brain and body immediately responded to reflect these new beliefs. Second on the list is the Moon; is it angular in the chart? The chart’s angles represent power infusion areas; planets located in those four segments are able to express their symbolism more strongly. In Anita’s case her natal Moon is at the uppermost or MC angle of the chart. Normally the Moon is our sense of emotions, nurturing, how we deal with changes and upsets, the flow of life that we experience. Spiritually, the Moon connects us to our past, to the ‘conditioning’ that we seem to bring with us into this world or the imprint of early childhood experiences that later shape our life and value system. Anita’s natal Moon position is placed at the upper angle of this chart. Although the Moon has long since left that area of the sky, its imprint still carries forward through the passing of time. Anita’s habits and routine way of reacting to life, to the passing of several friends to Cancer, was up for modification.
Venus, our beautiful morning star and evening star, symbolizes ‘relatedness’, how we can achieve balance, our sense of beauty and harmony. In this Advanced chart, on this very significant date, the natal position of Venus (at 6 Aries in the chart) is contacted by the t/North Node of the Moon. This is a mathematical point describing where the orbit of the Moon passes from below the Earth-Sun reference plane to the ‘above’ or upper portion of its orbit about the Earth. Think of this as representing an emotional-Spring time point. This is sort of a ‘new start’ for how we relate to our feelings and emotions.
Many of the other specific astrological factors are equally important and interesting. It is not necessary to review them all here. However, some may be interested in Pluto. This very small and very distant planet at the edges of our solar system is linked to processes of transformation, destruction of the old, a rebirth of the new. Many view this planet with dread. Yet, its association with transformation events is well documented. In this Advanced chart t/Pluto closely squares t/Sun — ‘death’ is in conflict with ‘life’ to put this in stark terms. The transiting Part of Fortune is joined up with t/Pluto, the outcome can go one way or the other. In her unconscious-but-aware journey, Anita had to make that choice of living or choosing to stay in a comforting supportive and loving place.
Prior Life Crises Related To Her NDE
The 12th criteria in the profile listing is associated with previous life-crises points. It has been determined that these NDE and similar events that change us are often linked to earlier events in one’s life that have had a profound impact upon us. Such events for Anita were the friends and others she knew of who were diagnosed with cancer, suffered devastating effects and subsequently passed from this life. We know that many are able to be cured and live on after facing cancer and being treated for it. In Anita’s case, the disease won out over their desire to live. These had a profound impact on her. Her own diagnoses four years earlier was a shock. From that time of diagnosis her disease progressed and she reached a point where she was wheel chair bound and very weak. Her worst fears were realized. She was living within a crises point.
We can revisit the chart for that date of diagnosis and see how it might link to the chart for the date she entered the hospital in a coma, apparently about to die.
- The April 26, 2002 Advanced chart finds n/Moon in the 10th house, just as it is in her hospitalization chart where it is conjoining the MC — the cusp of the 10th house.
- We can take note of t/Chiron near the IC angle, as it also is in the hospitalization chart.
- And, we find in her diagnosis chart the n/PoF is in the first house where it is conjoined by the transiting Moon. The hospitalization chart has the n/PoF at the Ascendant, the cusp of the first house.
Let us break these observations down into plain language. Within the context of Anita facing a severe illness and having seen the results of how cancer has affected others she knows or knows of, the placement of the natal Moon position at the top of both these charts (diagnosis and hospitalization charts) indicates her fears and uncertainty, the need for support, and having to face significant changes on an immediate basis. To say that she was gravely distraught would be an understatement.
Chiron has been found to represent how we deal with past hurts due to the actions of others or of our own doing. Were we disabled, do we carry a physical scar, are we holding onto the feeling of being mistreated by another in a severe way? How are we dealing with past or perceived hurts, how are we making adjustments? In these cyclic charts the word “adjustment” is often appropriate for Chiron’s influence. If we can make an adjustment then we can move forward. If we can’t, we continue to deal with the results of not being able to let go or to surmount past challenges. Anita at this point is faced with making a number of major adjustments all at one time.
The Part of Fortune (PoF) is not a planet. The PoF represents the relationship of the Moon (changes, fears, routines, nurturing, empathy, feelings) to the Sun (vitality, intent, involvement in life, core character). The Moon is our adaption to daily change in our environment. The Sun is our enabler of all-and-each of the planet’s expression in helping to fuel our living experience. The zodiac or degree distance of the Moon ahead of the Sun is applied to the Ascendant — the left end of the horizontal line across the chart which represents our personal horizon. The Sun-to-Moon distance is placed relative to the Ascendant and determines where the PoF is. Here in both the diagnosis chart and the hospitalization chart, the natal PoF (where we expect change to be experienced) is found in the first house. The first house depicts the actions of today, our reactions, how we see the world around us. In Anita’s case, she saw the world as full of potential change and upset. Consider these points:
1) The diagnosis chart has n/PoF in contact by the t/Moon. All of her fears and worries come into play on this day as the doctor speaks those frightening words, “You have cancer.” The fact that the n/PoF and t/Moon are squared by the n/Moon only doubles her reactions.
2) The hospitalization chart has n/PoF on the Ascendant. This is an “in your face” position. She is dealing with the impact of chance and change on a very personal level. This n/PoF-Asc. pattern is square (challenged) the positions of t/Chiron (hurts) and the opposition pattern of natal Saturn to transiting Saturn (frustration, limitations, the need to learn and apply lessons, to better use one’s resources). So, both charts have these three commonalities which are combined with other factors that relate to the challenge of the day. Anita’s diagnosis was a clear crises that was strongly, directly linked to her chart for hospitalization and her Near Death Experience.
What changed for Anita after her miraculous cure?
Her first months were focused on regaining her bodily strength and dealing with the many doctors and tests seeking to find answers as to how she could suddenly be cured of the lymphatic cancer which literally had flooded her body with tumor and fluids and caused her organs to shut down. How could very many tumors the size of tennis balls shrink in one day and disappear in a week. How could organs recover so quickly. Only the many skin lesions took a normal time to heal. Doctors from all over Asia wanted answers. Anita was an enigma. All she wanted to do was to resume a normal family life and to reestablish her friendships of the past before she was so ill.
She started to write down her thoughts about what had happened, what her spiritual encounter consisted of and how she reacted to it. She had to better understand what was behind the new insights and feelings she had about her life. The many doctor visits and tests, the questions of her friends and family all contributed to her thoughts and writing on this matter. She was invited to speak to organizations about her experience. She was interviewed and written about. Famous media people began to hear of her. Doctor Wayne Dyer contacted her. In March of 2011, the publisher Hay House contacted her about writing a book to share her experiences.
Anita’s future life’s course became plainly obvious to her. She would reach out and help others to understand their real choices about how to experience life, a better life. Her book, Dying To Be Me, would become widely read around the world. Her speaking engagements and blog site would help to carry her message. Since then she has become a significant inspiration to very many.
