June 2019: Heroes of Steel

Andúril is being reforged and there is no one else than you and I to wield it.

Do you know the secret of steel ? How can one wield the power of the past to build a better future ? Some knew.

It is said that the ancient Scandinavians blended the bones of the deceased into iron as they forged their swords. This is a very primitive form of steel making.

“Deep roots are not reached by the frost.”

Where does true power come from ? Where do our roots lay ? All in the past. Our deeds accompany us into our future, yet, not only our deeds but the deeds of our ancestors which we inherited.

There is no hero who does not train with discipline. Achilles was mentored by Chiron, Herakles gained discipline through his thralldom. There is always hard work, temperance, turmoil and toil in the making of a hero. Heroes are made by Time, no child is born as one. There is no hero who is free from the deeds of those who come before her. Being so deeply connected to the past, the hero saves the World for those who will come after him.

The Hero stands between Past and Future, deciding the fate of the world. We rely on her capacity to beat the darkness and bring back the light of the day. The Hero’s sword is always inherited: Excalibur, Thyrfing, Andúril… you name it. This is Mars in Cancer, the sword that comes from the Waters, the sword which carries the spirit of the land and blessing of the ancestors.

Astrological Significance

These days Saturn and Pluton keep destroying the civilizations and Mars, the sword, is coming up to be tempered by their power. These days are great times for embodying the hero. As the world keeps crumbling down, seeds of a new day still hide in us. Each of us, you and I, keep the ideas, ideals and models for the future.

It is a time to temper our swords in the discipline and spirit of steel and bathe them in lifegiving Water. Our will to fight, will to survive, to cry ourselves into the world is now getting a blessing from the Past. Our swords now will be tempered and be given new life, a new name.

Andúril is being reforged and there is no one else than you and I to wield it.

Volume up your Bathory. It is our time to level up our weapons and find regeneration.

Blessings,

Begüm
