Multidisciplinarity

by Anna Maria Costa Ribeiro

I am multipleI have been “multiple” – rather – I was born multiple. Vastness is what moves, be it in the skies, sea, in the land, or in work. Someone named Henry VI, said (via Shakespeare) “Ignorance is the plague of God. Knowledge is the wing which allows one to fly into the skies”.

My goal has always been the skies (heaven), while at the same time keeping one foot on earth, i.e. – a stretch.

In order to reach the heavens, we know we have to go through hell, so we can enjoy it properly.  The point being “Evolution lies in diversity” and these are the basic assumptions:

  • Not advancing means going backwards.
  • Repetition is dull; it is like dying in a cell for fear of the unknown.
  • To evolve is to move, to have freedom to create, see the unseen, hearing the unheard.

In case you never heard, Harvard and M.I.T. hold (optional) classes of Poker. The goal being to develop mental agility, the observation of people and dealing with the unknown. That in itself is a good reason for one to learn how to play the Tarot, because the Tarot teaches you to SEE.

If you have a Rising sign, it is for a reason – it is there to remind you to be born again every moment, as the best means of becoming young again. Having the courage to repeatedly start something new is the greatest plastic surgery one can have.

The goal to be achieved here is Multidisciplinarity. To begin with, you already have ten planets in your birth chart and that without counting Nibiru.  In addition, you have to live ALL of them, if you want to go beyond sameness, that is, if you want to honor this incarnation. Let your birth chart work for you, it is your server. Human nature is polytheist, multiple, starting with your lunar moods.

Each client has a question, not necessarily answered easily by Astrology. Esoteric polytheism means to be familiar with multiple Occult Sciences, which nowadays are open at large, but rather continue to be occult for the great majority of people.  Do not be biased, or prejudiced against them, this is such a limitation. Life is short in the third dimension.

Here are a few examples of multidisciplinarity:

Numerology

headsIf you want to change your name, you’d better have a very strong reason for that, and a firm intention. You need to commit yourself with the new – body, soul and guts – or this change won’t be worth at all. If you change to a professional name, you’d better “spouse” your profession and act with that responsibility, while minimizing the weaknesses, which hurt your new life. Otherwise, it is worth nothing, Zero. It is for this reason that I usually utilize a “Magic Act”, a celebration of sorts, to make this act a commitment, to destroy barriers and bring transformation (in the words of Alejandro Jodorowsky). You will have noticed that a wedding celebration, an oath to office (as in a presidential ceremony), etc. are all magical acts to imprint deep impressions in the spirit and soul of the person, to make him or her to be reborn for that new life.

Therefore, the new name requires a magical act, and it should never be something plain and simple, but rather something elaborate, capable of having a strong impact to promote a huge change in that person’s spirit.

The new name is Homology: an image or word for personal transformation, to promote an effect. In addition, the person needs to identify with that image or effect. Without Homology, nothing works, not even your marriage, if you have one.

Astrology

You also require a magical act when you need to conquer or to get rid of something important. A meaningful act, personal and that cannot be transferable, connected to your chart and to what you want to achieve. Something rather hard to be achieved – this is Astromagic, Psicomagic, Transformation, Connection with the sacred and cosmic.  

Family Constellations

If one has a serious problem, for instance, in developing a career, there is often a ‘script’, a block under which is blocking his future. It is good to have it unblocked, which can usually be done with the ritual of Family Constellations.

gridPast Lives

A very useful knowledge vis-à-vis great indecision in life, which also blocks the future from happening. Memory regression shows the path to the future. It is not only past, it also reveals the future. I have been doing this for years and have proof of its results.
As Buddha once said: “Truth is that what is useful”.
As Bert Hellinger said: “What is useful is that which helps.“

Mythology

Mythology is key – fundamental. The myths of gods (including the Afro-Brazilian “orixás”) are the most complete description of people’s typology. Through them, you will:

  • Learn how to deal with people
  • Learn their essence
  • Know what to expect from them
  • How to behave with them
  • What they will attract in their lives (and which will carry you in a whirlwind if you are close to them).

The method is never relevant; it is just a path to get to what really matters. To stimulate peoples’ gifts is better than giving them formulas and rules to live by, which are always limiting. To learn something by heart is very bad also, even if it stimulates memory, which is doubtful. It is enough for you to learn by heart your phone numbers and passwords.

A Gift is an ability which we all have – the gift of knitting, of teaching, of healing, of making peace, of annoying others, to see the worst, or the better, etc.

seedsA Vocation is that which is sacred – it is an encounter of the soul. Nothing will disturb your vocation; nothing will stress you – because if it will, it is not your vocation, but could be your gift. The Gift is “I” – the vocation is cosmic. You place yourself at service of something bigger than you, becoming a channel, you act as if ‘incorporated’.

Well, I will stop here, but before that, I leave you these words:  BE DAZZLED, BEWILDERED. Do not accept less than bewilderment; do not learn from someone who is not bewildered, because he/she will not be able to bewilder someone else, and/or has not found yet his/her vocation. To get bewildered every single minute of life, even about something small and silly, but that triggered something inside you. Be dazzled and nothing less.
A good student is someone who likes to learn, makes impersonal questions, but is searching knowledge.

Therefore, see the unseen.

(This was the summary of the lecture I gave at the 2013 Astrology Symposium. November/2013)
