Day 3 : August 18
Cooperation or Competition

Instructions: Play without thinking and without falling into old behavior patterns. If you find yourself thinking or repeating yourself, stop and listen. You have all the time in the world and nature will cover for you while you are not playing. Always choose your sounds according to what you hear.

Astrological Associations: "The number Three symbolizes the integration of the dualism of the Two by the power of a third factor which is will or purpose. the the third step we see a coming together of many formerly divergent threads to form a single piece of coherent material. At this point in the crisis individuals begin to organize themselves and plan ways to survive the ordeal. They realize that no one can make it alone and that survival depends upon strong group cohesiveness."

The Moon now approaches an Opposition with Uranus across the 5/11 House axis. This could be indicative of a growing desire for individual self-assertion and self-gratification in conflict with conditions which call for cooperation and individual sacrifice. Conditions have deteriorated to the point where survival depends upon putting the group's welfare before individual concerns."

Venus and Mars move to a conjunction on the degree of the Meditating Man signifying an intensification of inner directed energies which can be used for the general welfare or selfishly."


Venus/Mars: A man Meditating with Complete Concentration While in a State of Neglect of Bodily Appearance and Cleanliness.

T'ai Hsuan Ching:



Yin protects married couples;
Yang guards their posterity;
Their posterity is the Way;
That is in charge of both.



Posterity is in blackness;
It is not like whiteness.

I Ching:

All day long the superior man is creatively active.
At nightfall his mind is still beset with cares.
No Blame.
