True Dark Moon (Druj)

Ephemerides of the True Dark Moon (Druj)

by Albert Timashev

The Dark Moon as a very important index of a horoscope now is taken into account of many astrologers from different schools and currents. It's well-known already that the point named the Dark Moon is the apogee of the lunar orbit (according to another version, it's the second focus of the lunar orbit, which coincides with the projection of the apogee relatively to the centre of the Earth), and the Dark Moon makes one revolution relatively to the point of the vernal equinox (0 Aries) for 8.85 years. Until now the most of astrologers used only one Dark Moon named Lilith Lilith glyphor Luna Nera, which is the mean apogee, i.e. some kind of mathematical idealization, an average movement of the real object. But for a complete picture we have to count also the real or oscillating, looping Dark Moon named Druj Druj glyph, which is the true apogee. [note: see also 1181 Lilith|Black Moon Lilith|Apogee Variants|Lilith & Black Moon].

First of all we need to review Dark Moon's interpretations in general. Orthodox explanations of the Avestan School of Astrology says to us that the Dark (Black) Moon is an index of dark karma, or all evil works and sins of a man. Of course, it's right not all time. From astropsychological point of view, the Dark Moon (lunar orbit's apogee) is an appearance of the unconscious, some place where human moon source is going out of control. According to this attitude, the Dark Moon is moon function's maximum, the strongest manifistation of subconsciousness, which is able to eclipse an intellect and our rational thinking. There is no reason to assert that it is bad, because subconsciousness is important for a man as well as consciousness, and dream isn't less important then awakening. Besides, the Dark Moon is a point of the present time at the lunar orbit, i.e. it's connected with our ability to live and to act at the current moment on unconscious level. Is it so bad? Another question, that a lot of complexes and latent, secret desires overburdens people's subconsciousness, threrfore the most of people can not reach harmony and tranquillity because of a permanent tension holding their psyche (Moon). And lunar orbit's point of apogee (maximum) forces to come out those concealed desires in their full strength aside from mental control. So we can't treat the Dark Moon as a source of all human dirt and darkness or all sins of the mankind. Firstly, this Dark Moon is not more then an indicator, and secondly it's an indicator of human hidden essence, underwater part of an iceberg, which isn't usually shown by a man to anybody (including him/herself) because of fear. But if a man overcame this fear and saw his/her own unconscious complexes, realized his/her "negative karma" [We can't discuss here all kinds or meanings of "karma", here we mean an information, which is located in the unconsciousness. As we know any corrections of such a matter is more then hard] (and what else could help to a man to do that, if not the Dark Moon?), so now a person has a chance to liberate him/herself from these complexes and realize his/her Dark Moon as a real point of the Present Time on the level of the unconsciousness. {more}
