WHAT IS A 4-TERRA ASSEMBLAGE TALISMAN METHOD?

A chance to tell a story…consider this one and reflect upon similar ‘coincidences’ in your own life:

You are ending an epic life journey, some journey, astrologically significant to your life that has you moving the possessions of two sisters 3,018 miles from California to Washington, DC. Great adventures are shared and this journey of middle-aged siblings proves a rare opportunity to demonstrate and tighten familial love. At the end of the sojourn your sisters are seeing you off at the DC bus station and in that moment, “certain things that like to happen together” gathered.

To begin with, you are carrying a special departure gift from your Washington, DC host, something originating from Egypt. As you prepare to board your bus, you gather reading materials for a long, three-day bus trip home; a story on nuclear tests by the French in French Polynesia catches your interest – and you knowingly chose that newspaper for the story.

It is late evening as the bus loads – and it is overbooked, people are left standing frustrated in the aisle. You offer your seat to a Black woman with her children, as she piles as many as she can with her onto the limited seat; one small child is left standing. Across the aisle, a White woman offers to hold that child in her lap. That settled the bus departs. We travel all night, with frequent stops all the way to Chicago, Illinois.

During a daybreak stop in Cleveland, Ohio, you approach the White woman who you had observed holding the sleeping Black child all night; it had to have been uncomfortable. You ask her, “Why did you offer?” and in the moment of your asking you feel a blush of shame; realizing that your own projected biases (you are Black) are on display, but she responds, “I did it because it because the child had a need and I have children.”

It was important not to stand aloof, and you pressed on and after further conversation you learn that the woman is from the area around Lake Baikal, Central Siberia, Russia and the realization of what the moment holds washes over you: all of the places where your birth chart Venus was angular in your birth moment were active. Weeks before, when you had began the move from Oakland, California, the Moon was in Cancer, having just crossed your Venus position at 16˚ Cancer 36’; you were consciously prepared with knowledge that the East Coast environments were Venus Midheaven zones important to your life. The planet Venus was seen in the sky almost exactly over the DC location the moment you were born. As you boarded the bus in Washington, DC, your birth Sun had progressed during my then 44-years-of-life, from 3˚ Gemini 48’ to 15˚ Cancer 54’, waxing closely towards the birth position. Furthermore, that DC stage, where you first set eyes on the Russian woman was connected to Lake Baikal, another angular Venus location (beneath the Earth in your birth moment), the source of the Egyptian stone gift was your Venus (seen setting over the west of Egypt in your birth moment), and the story of the nuclear testing in French Polynesia was from your congenital Venus rising zone over French Polynesia. Signatures from these four stages had gathered to you to ‘holistically’ teach you the poles and grays of love - its definitions, words like attraction, connection, the good, the precious, shared values, both the personal and agape forms; touched, you returned to California and your family, those possessions and people you loved and value most.

Back then, in 1995, you were prepared with the astrological skills to ‘see’ these “things that like to happen together” and ‘realized’ the experience first-hand, such that you could touch it. Nowadays the 1995 experience is an almost daily occurrence; that moment of self-realization had transformed you.

This is my story and 4-TERRA ASSEMBLAGE TALISMAN is an innovation created out of that ‘eureka’ moment; created to concentrate the consciousness moving forward, focusing my awareness that time and place connect to a particular value for me, empowering and focusing its development in my person. When next you have some deeply moving life experience, use this innovation to look closer, set your gaze beyond the superficial meaning of events to the provenance of materials, people. Look to the astrological legacy set out for you in place at birth and whenever possible prepare yourself for when and where they gather – for a moment of realization.
