GLOBAL GATHERINGS VI— Dr. Peter Orban from Frankfurt Germany
On November 17, Dr. Orban lectured on the signs of Aquarius and Pisces and the issues of Uranus and Pisces. He spoke only in German so I did not understand what he said. These are some of the notes on Uranus/Aquarius that Ingrid took during the lecture that she thought was excellent.
Dr. Orban feels that, if you put all of the signs and planets together in our horoscope, it is like a Leggo construction— they make a map of the Soul, the design or architecture of your Soul. This is the most important part for astrologer, according to Dr. Orban— what you feel inside, what your Soul feels and wants, and the horoscope, the Leggo construction, helps you get in touch with this. Orban’s background is Jung and Greece mythology. Archetypes are the food for his Soul.
When you breathe, the air comes from outside, then it makes a stop inside and then it goes outside. He feels that this is the Path of the Soul.
He learns a lot about himself from his clients. When clients come to him with certain problems, he feels that these are HIS problems as well, an opportunity for him to learn more about himself.
Every astrologer has to find his own way, including the connection with his own Soul. An astrologer can tell a client what to do but the client must find his own way out of the difficult transits in his or her life. (NOTE: In America we say that you can lead a horse to water but you cannot make him drink.)
Uranus brings the theme of Kismet or Fate into the life. Ancient peoples believed more strongly in this energy of Kismet. He feels that there are 17 different goddesses dealing with Fate. The Greeks went every 5 years to the Oracle of Delphi. What she said was not so important, especially if it was dire, as they believed great rewards in the afterlife. The Germanic peoples believed in Valkyrie and the Valhalla who took the soldiers to heaven.
Uranus has a message for us and we need to appreciate these messages rather than fear them.
Dr. Orban has been married many times and he felt liberated when these women left. When something ends, you need to go into the freedom that Uranus brings. There is a Coldness of Freedom— it is tough and cold when it is changing all your life. There are messages in the thread of your life— we need to look for what the messages are in our life changes. Uranus is the planet of Liberation— it breaks the umbilical cord of our life.
Growing up is a difficult path but Uranus is the planet that is forcing us to grow up, to exist by yourself. When a client is experiencing a strong Uranus transit, listen to the information that the client is telling you about what is going on in his or her life— here is their lesson of which they may not be aware.
Uranus is the archetype of the Fool— a rude energy— such as the Fool who could always tell the King the truth without getting his head chopped off.
Uranus liberates us from what we have outgrown in life, even when we do not realize this ourselves. Uranus knows we need to be free. Invite Uranus into your life and accept the changes that he brings.
Uranus rules the affairs of the Family, as an entity. The individual with the strong Uranus will bring up and force the family to confront what is hidden in the family closet. Often, with a strong Uranus, there may be a past suicide in the family that has been covered up or denied.
You must say— I AM the rising sign, not that you have this sign rising. You ARE your chart!
NOTE: Dr. Orban has the same birthday as actor Michael Douglas, only 1 hour later, so he is watching to see what happens in this actor’s life.
- I am the International Liaison for the National Council for Geocosmic Research. I promote membership in this organization— a membership that provides a vehicle for astrologers around the world to receive recognition internationally through writing anything from short posts in E-News to research articles in the Geocosmic Journal and the NCGR Research Journal. Different from other astrological organizations, the NCGR encourages the formation of Study Groups. In small countries, these groups offer a less expensive type of membership but all can gain recognition through sharing their work with other NCGR members. Perfect English is not required as I and others can edit any submission.
- Using Global Gatherings, I would like to visit astrologers around the world. I will gladly come and publicize the work of astrologers in other countries. If you are interested in a visit from me, please let me know. It is not always possible to visit every country but I will try. I am always in Europe in November. [email protected]
