Retro 2016-10: Reversal of 2009- 03: Disreal and Unreal

Dear friends, the annual period of 4.5 months of Saturn Retrograde this year, 2016, is from 24th Mar- 14th Aug. This is my fifth consecutive year of posting online about Saturn retrograde. And, is preceded by detailed notebooks of observation about this period since 2005. The detailed concepts of Saturn Retrograde are here in this blog header titled Saturn Retrograde, just below the blog picture. The links to me previous articles online are: Saturn Retro 2012 (2 articles), Saturn Retro 2013 (70 articles)Saturn Retro 2014 (11 articles) and Saturn Retro 2015 (15 articles)

Reversal of Saturn retrograde 2009- Summary
Dear friends, in the previous two posts Saturn-retro-2016-8: Reversal-of-2009, Part 1, and Saturn-retro-2016-9- Reversal-of-2009 Part 02, I had discussed in detail, that,  how for me,  most Saturn Retrogrades after 2009, has mostly been a karmic reversal of the great Saturn Retrograde of 2009, a landmark year, which stands as the classic model of crash-down and disaster. Wherein, for a saturnine person like myself, the mistakes during Saturn retrograde of many previous years (and probably of  many previous lifetimes), finally came crashing down in a mega avalanche of classic year 2009.

And how,  from Retrograde 2013 onwards, I have been able to utilize the energies of this Saturn Retro period, for some amazing repetition, replay, regression, and re enactment of past historical events.  Re- experiencing events from the past,  in a more revised, reoriented Saturnine manner....

Unreal  of 2009 and Disreal of 2016
As discussed in the previous posts the the 3rd gear, Phase three(coloured in yellow)  phase of Saturn retro 2009, saw me entering a month long zen/ militaristic/ Architectural skills/ Life skills up-gradation training programme under friend Monindro, at his place in Mumbai. A very much Sun, Mars, Ketu super-masculine disciplinary training programme. But at the end of it, when I look at it was Unreal, at the best. Practical, masculine, steel bodied, yes, but deep down Unreal.

And in this year 2016, the yellow coloured, 3rd gear, Phase three phase of Saturn retro 2016, has spewed a vast amount of layered feminine Moon, Neptune, Venusian energies..  comprising seams of  social, medical, emotional, personal issues. Layers and layers of complex multi-layered seams, feminine, but very visceral, karmic and Diseal. Like the abominable layers of truths in any David Lynch movie.

The Unreal and the Disreal
 I first came across the terms Disreal and Unreal in the Roland Barthes book, A Lovers Discourse. Unreal denotes, fantasy, suspended belief, imagination, the suspended motion of a ball thrown up in the air, before it starts to fall, antigravity, satellites suspended in space, in orbit. Most of the Sci-fi/ fantasy, literature, movies of 50's, 60's, 70's was all about the Unreal, space, aliens, superheros and stuff.
And Disreal denotes the complex geological layers below ground level, below our ground reality, ancestral pasts, entanglements, forgotten histories, lodged inside ourselves, that we otherwise ignore and move forward, the visceral layers that comprise the innards inside each once of us, the mud, the swamp, the primitive bogs of karmic secrets. Most of the stories of H.P. Lovecraft, had the Disreal as their basic premise. Where, instead of weirdness, aliens being out there in far flung space, the humans had their ancestral roots as domestic farm animals of an ancient race of  monster aliens, the Elders, the Cthulhu...!!

Unreal  of 2009 and Disreal of 2016
As mentioned in the previous post Saturn-retro-2016-9- Reversal-of-2009 Part 02, \towards the ending stretch of the yellow coloured, 3rd gear, Phase three phase, the month long zen/ Architectural / Life skills training programme, was slowly running into muddy waters. The martial, mountainous expedition, the guts and glory, forward march despite/ against all odds, slowly started entering a swampy, muddy ground, like Napoleons army at Waterloo. Or like the end of Werner Herzog's famous movie.. Aguirre, the_Wrath_of_God!!!

Yellow energies becoming Blue
In Retro 2009, it was my first experience of the energy drop towards the end of Yellow phase. And how, the gradually diminishing Rajasic Yellow energies of 3rd gear  phase gradually began to convert into the psychedelic Blue energies of the Falling Retro phase. 
How, like in Werner Herzog's movie.. Aguirre, the_Wrath_of_God, the strong forward moving Sun, Mars, Ketu energies now began to convert into the Blue, hazy, psychedelic, layers of Venus, Neptune, Moon vibrations.

Fortuitous/ synchronous events
Originally, I was planning to write on a different perspective on this phase, BUT, a sudden unexpected, out of the blue phone call from an Uzan Bazar friend, who wasn't in touch for a zillion years, and who was now into supply of surgical instruments, and asking about contact number of a certain doctor from my past, put the whole Unreal/ Disreal perception of the Yellow/ Blue energies into another perspective altogether. The bizarre synchronicity, Dadaist absurdity of the morning call, proved that, in this highly Disreal phase of retro 2016, some freaky veins of the Unreal has already begun to seep in, creep in...
 And, also proves that, whatever it is that I set out to write, on Saturn retrograde, is ultimately completely transformed by the fortuitous, synchronous events, immediately happening around me...

Then and Now...
Even though that highly important daily journal from 2009 is missing, the memory from my many revisions over the past years, brings clearly to mind, that, by now, during Saturn Retro 2009 I had put in my first journal entries about the gradually diminishing Rajasic Yellow energies gradually beginning to convert into the psychedelic Blue energies.  Even though, I had NO idea of the prevailing Saturn Retrograde, I wrote of the energy change in terms of Universal state of things!

And, now thereafter, especially from Retro 2013 onwards, this period of the annual Saturn Retrograde, usually always finds me, deeply enmeshed into the most microscopic nuances, visceral details, micro-mechanics of the Saturn Retrograde phenomenon!
 I was just trying to read this post, seeing it in blog preview, to check the colour coding!
 I couldn't even read it myself! So heavy was the layers and references of the Saturn Retro phase! But then, what has the destiny to be narrated in detail.. has to narrated in detail! 
Even if it's just as a bedrock foundation for future data reference, astrological thesis/ archive...

... to be updated in installments.....
