POSEIDON- AN ARCHETYPE OF TRUTH AND ENLIGHTENMENT by Hilary Bond PhD, Copyright. All Rights Reserved.


Poseidon is one of the 12 Uranian planets discovered by Alfred de Witte in  World War I. Charles Emerson extended the knowledge on the Uranians and then Eileen Nauman did a huge amount of excellent research, which you may find from pages 11-14 in her book on “Medical Astrology” and her wonderful “Medicine Garden Articles” on the internet. POSEIDON was the God of the Ocean and as an ARCHETYPE POSEIDON is a higher spiritual octave of Neptune. POSEIDON is the ‘master’ energy expression far beyond Neptune. This archetype symbolizes the ‘initiate, ’just as Chiron does. If you read Jane Ellen Harrison’s book on early Greek Gods and Goddesses you will find more information on “the initiator.” The book is called “Themis.” Initiators teach secret knowledge and they lift seekers of the truth and the “True Straight Way” to a higher vibrational level.

Poseidon as an archetypal flavour points to an ethical person who specialises in truth or a deviate who lies and twists the truth habitually, depending upon the person, their energy expression and their spiritual evolution. Poseidon has information that causes enlightenment or awakening and Poseidon people ground this awakened knowledge into human consciousness in a practical, every day pragmatic use. They are interested in truth, enlightenment, spiritual evolution,  and the search for ‘Truth’. Positive Poseidon people are ethical,  and morally incorruptible. They have  high moral standards, they  are trusting and are honest to a fault. Negative Poseidon people can be swindlers, cultists and brainwashers and they often seek to hurt others.

There are some Poseidon people who are deemed autistic. They generally lack social skills. Harvey is a young man who has been ascertained with Aspergers Syndrome Disorder. ASD is a type of autism and it was named and “discovered by Hans Aspergers.  Harvey’s Poseidon in Libra in the 9th is conjunct Pluto and quincunx Ceres in the 2nd house, and quincunx Chiron conjunct Juno in the 4th house. He is genius level, with a university degree, but only speaks to his mother and brother. He has a large number of people he avoids and he avoids them or he is abysmally rude to them. He lives mostly in a darkened room. I have found that vibrational healing can help autistic people hold down jobs.
Positive Poseidon people talk and write for a living. They lecture, speak, write and teach professionally. You will find them in universities and colleges as teachers, tutors, professors and academics. They may be newsreaders and talk show hosts and even actors. They often write fiction and nonfiction books. They are bloggers on web sites. They are politicians, judge, solicitors and lawyers.

In the New Age world they can be oracles, prophets, spiritualist mediums, clairvoyants, shamans, astrologers, tarot readers and those who can see through the veil into the other dimensions to heal and search for “Truth” and ‘enlightenment’ for themselves and others. So here we have shaman Carlos Castenada (Poseidon sextile Mars and trine South Node conjunct Jupiter) and Rudolf Steiner (Poseidon conjunct MC trine Hygeia) they are universal messengers who bring truth and light to our world.

Other  writers who are Poseidon people are Marsha Linehan (author of Dialectal Behaviour Counselling for Borderline Personality Disorder: Pluto conjunct Hygeia sextile Poseidon & Poseidon trine Uranus conjunct Mercury) , Douglas Baker –esoteric astrologer (conjunct North Node conjunct Ascendant), Marilyn Fergussen ( Posiedon 10th house),  and Marija Gimbutas who wrote “The Gods and Goddesses of Old Europe” and “The Language of the Goddess”(Saturn conjunct Poseidon square Ceres square Juno & sextile Moon.)

I find Poseidon people who are branded as having mental disorders ranging from acute psychotic break, to chronic psychosis, schizophrenia, and obsessive-compulsive disorders, may just need lots of vibrational healing. One I know was born on an old Aboriginal mission, in Australia. She was an empath who could hear and see the poor people (ghosts) who died of grief and being poisoned. She had Poseidon trine Sun conjunct Chiron exactly and Poseidon sextile Saturn exactly. As I have taught many children with Aspergers Syndrome Disorder I know they see ghosts too.

One of my ancestors, my great grandmother, who was known as an angel had Poseidon conjunct Jupiter in Leo trine Hygeia. She bought joy and inspiration into everyone’s lives.

Metaphysical writers and speakers who share their ideas with the world are often Poseidon people. They choose to come to our planet to lift our planetary vibration through their knowledge and message. Doreen Virtue has Poseidon quincunx Hygeia. Edgar Cayce had Poseidon in the first house trine Jupiter and Neptune. Louise Hay has Poseidon conjunct Venus in her 3rd house quincunx Chiron. Edward Bach has Poseidon conjunct DESC conjunct Vesta conjunct Ceres.

Linguists who speak two or more foreign languages are Poseidon people. They are able to pick up a foreign language very easily. My grandad spoke ten languages. He had Poseidon conjunct ASC trine Sun conjunct Juno conjunct Ceres. His Poseidon squared Sagittarian/Gemini nodal axis.

I have Poseidon 29 minutes away from conjuncting my Moon. It is five degrees away from conjuncting my Hygeia in my 8th house of ancestors and trine my Vesta  in Gemini in my 4th house. Yes, I have inherited my Poseidon characteristics from my ancestors.  My paternal Nana had Poseidon in Virgo quincunx Kronos the archetype of invincibility and Athena the mentor. And Nana was my protector from when I was born to when she died when I was 35. Now she is one of my spiritual guides.  My only neice too is a Poseidon woman. She is a nurse and a clairvoyant with Poseidon in the 8th conjunct Sun, conjunct Mercury conjunct Chiron. Her Poseidon is in a grand trine with Ceres  and Kronos. My son is a gifted clairvoyant and shamanic healer with Poseidon conjunct Pluto very close to the MC and trine Athena.   My grandson has Poseidon In Scorpio in the 9th trine Ascendant and trine Kronos all in water. My Grandson’s Poseidon is also sextiles Mercury and Vesta. My Mother’s Poseidon was conjunct South Node. One of my few cousins was a teacher, artist,  and clairvoyant  and she had Poseidon sextiles Athena and quincunx Chiron.

What about you? I hope you have enjoyed this short article on Poseidon.

Cheers and blessings for a really happy day,
Hilary

  1. I just found where Poseidon is in my chart: 5 house Aquarius 12:59 degrees. Chiron is at 22:43

    No clue of what it means in my chart.

    Have a great day Hilary 😊

  2. Hi Marina,
    Your Poseidon is 13 Degrees Libra in your 1st house which marks you as a Poseidon person and it is significantly sextiles to your Moon in your 11th house so our friends see you as a woman of Light and Enlightenment. It is also quincunx your Mercury, so I see Poseidon as a very important archetype in your life. This means you are truthful, moral, honest and also very evolved when you entered this incarnation.

    I hope that very simple explanation helps. Everything positive I wrote about Poseidon fits you.

    Lots of love to you Marina,
    from Hilary

  3. :Andrew Yang is an upcoming Dem running for President. His Sun is 22 Cap (currently transited by Pluto), his Poseidon is 22 Libra, and Chiron is 20 Aries. Reading his book and looking at his history, it seems he is clairvoyant. He had a “foreboding” about the US and looked into the data to figure out what was going on. He feels called on to wake people up to what is really going on, and nobody else is talking about it. His birth date: 1/13/1975, Schenectady NY, 6:20 am. Could you look at that?

    • Hi Catherine,
      There is no doubt about it , Andrew Yang is an enlightened and enlightening presidential candidate for USA. I don’t live in the USA but I have read enough to know your problems and I feel a freedom fighter and healer (yod with Hades 22 degrees Taurus 4th H quincunx both Neptune and Mars) like Andrew could solve your country’s economically based demographic problems. He is a good and evolved man. His Sun 22 Cap 1st H apex square Chiron 3rd and Poseidon 9th house certainly ties in with the beliefs of his country. His Uranus conjunct MC sextile his ASC (his soul) and Uranus opp his Admetos point to change for the embattled citizen. I did not see his book Catherine, but as he has a “clean drinking water policy” which points to his Hygeia 27 degrees Aries conjunct Chiron opp Poseidon and square his sun points to him being a pioneering healer. I’ll do the best I can to sell him Catherine in my book. Take care and thankyou for your caring heart ~Hilary ~

      • Thanks so much for your insight. I didn’t see the quincunx with Neptune. But I did see a kite pattern with Neptune sextile Pluto and Venus and opposite Kronos. He’s pretty darn smart with a grand tine in Air, seeks the truth and says it, and with that Capricorn Sun is down to earth and very pragmatic.

        Hopefully he can get the ideas out there that will show people the way forward.

  4. hi hillary ,
    i just read your post and check my chart.
    i have (24.31 degrees (10th house) )mc in libra and conjunction with spica (23.36 degrees )hygia(24.04 degrees)poseidon (25.41)pluto(27.46)and saturn (00.21 scorpion)…
    and hygia and posedion trine ceres and venus (conjunction)north node
    i am very curious about that what’s that mean
    Have a great day Hilary 😊

    • Hello Duygu,

      I feel because of your quincunxes that there is a lot of subconscious compartmentalising going on in your life and it is possibly to do with your family’s expectations. There are also past life intense needs for beauty and balance in your life and yet that urge seems to be thwarted. You should be honest with yourself about your own need for possibly relationships/love/art/ beauty for your own well-being. I suggest seeing a good therapist who possibly is also a past life hypnotherapist to explore your needs which seem to be squashed by possibly past life scarring and/or family expectations. The need to be true to yourself is paramount.

      Good luck and best wishes,
      Dr Hilary Bond.

  5. Many thanks for this precious insight. I came here since i was reading about Astrea which conjuncts my mercury/ psyche conjunction. Mercury Is my chart ruler and my North node ruler too. So i investigated about Astrea and i found out Poseidon was very important in its Discovery chart since It formed a particular geometric pattern together with the main planets and asteroids. Sorry for the long premise but i Am so Happy because my Natal Poseidon conjuncts with an orb of less than One degree my Natal Moon in the eighth house, sextile my chiron and vesta. So Am i a Poseidon woman in your opinion?

    • Hi Roberta,

      Thanks for your message. It is great to hear from you.

      I too have Poseidon closely conjunct my Moon in my 8th house. Poseidon: symbolizes enlightenment and wisdom, the life force, spirituality, light, universality, mediumistic, visionary, and the intellectual. I am probably 99% of those characteristics. Your opinion is as important as mine. Do you think those characteristics fit your personality and life journey and your ancestors seeing the 8th house is the house of your ancestors and marks you as a pontifex or bridge between other dimensions and this realm? Eighth house people can see symbols and possibly can speak with or hear their ancestors, generally in portals. Can you? Training is the key. I began my quest in learning how to journey safely into other dimensions in 1982, but I was very naive in those days and really had no one to guide and teach me. Even though after 2010 I was confident enough to professionally heal in these realms I am still learning, so the key here is an open mind, an open heart and a lack of pomposity or thinking that we know everything.

      I welcome your reply and I would love to hear more of your experience of having Astraea conjunct your Mercury conjunct Psyche. Is your NN Gemini or Virgo?

      Best wishes,
      Hilary

      • thanks a lot it Is so interesting what i Am learning from you. I really would like to esperience a regression and lately, probably due to Pluto transiting conjunct My moon i feel very connected to my mother Who Is not with me anymore and to my Granny Whom i never met. I would like to know more about her Life since My mother never knew her father and i suppose both My mother and granny’ s Life were really tragic. My North node Is in gemini , in twelfth house like my taurus sun and gemini jupiter. My Moon Poseidon conjunction Is now experiencing a pluto saturn conjunction and my Pisces saturn had a neptune conjunction some months ago. What to say? Even though i Am very earthly i feel a bit of an alien and yes i Am honest till It hurts. And, It often hurts a lot. My natural pragmatism (south node in sixth house) Is often clouded by neptune and my Dreams are often big and fragile but i Am learning that there Is nothing bad with It and It Is the journey that matters. I find beautifulto help people in distress. My Mercury psyche Astrea conjunction at the beginning of taurus Is now touched by uranus conjunctand It feels very very strong. It seems like i do not need words to communicate but i feel aware of other channels Although It feels like i Am still learning to use this Energy (gemini North node). I feel very connected to nature and all Its beings sometimes in a very Primal way ( my Moon Is Also conjunct to my Black Moon lilith with a Seven degrees orb.
        Thanks a lot for your preciousreply.
        Best

  6. Ah i forgot ! I have Neptune conjuncts vertex which has and uranian flavour too if i don’t get wrong. That Is very enlightening 🙂

    • Hi Roberta,
      I will answer just one part of what you said because what you have told me is so complex.
      1. Poseidon is often quite psychic and spiritual and with Poseidon conjunct your Moon you have most like had many past life or ancestors or both who have been psychic. My Moon is 29 minutes away from my Poseidon and after I travelled the St Micael-Mother Mary ley line (when my sun was activated by T Neptne & Uranus) my gifts of clairvoyance were activated.
      2. T Pluto and T Saturn are not just transformative and hard lesson indicators but they clear karma; in other words it may be that your soul chose to clear quite a lot of karma in this life.
      3. I first saw and heard my Nana, Grandad and Great-Grandmother Alice in a geographically remote forest where people had not been for 40 years. It had some special sacred places; portals where it was easy to go into other dimensions. They first spoke to me then. Now I can hear them any time I choose. But I have had years of training to be able to do this.
      4. With your North Node in your 12th house it is time to begin training Roberta.
      5. With your asteroid Psyche conjunct your Mercury your communication processes are attuned to your soul. But Psyche can make you very vulnerable and oversensitive, more so than other thick-skinned people. This asteroid Psyche is sometimes called the Goddess of the Soul and having Psyche in such a strong placement can help you understand yourself, your soul, and your psychology really well. Put all that together and it could help you become a wonderful psychologist, or maybe a shamanic healer or medical intuitive, but it all takes time, attention to ethics (Astraea) and devotion to the path of compassion and goodness.
      Many blessings to you,
      Hilary.

      • Sorry for my late reply but I did not see your reply being on top of mine. I can tell you that no-one before understood how I really feel. And I am so glad I met you. What do you mean with training I actually would need a guide but I do not know where to

      • Where to turn. In my thirties I moved to country and studied herbal remedies for two years and I felt the strong need to deal with dying people. That is what I am doing now working with old people. Now I am fiftyfour and after
        growing up my three sons and after my Chiron return I felt really inspired and I still feel. In Italy I suppose there are less opportunities to have some good training.

  7. thanks a lot it Is so interesting what i Am learning from you. I really would like to esperience a regression. Lately, probably due to Pluto transiting conjunct My moon i feel very connected to my mother Who Is not with me anymore and to my Granny Whom i never met. I would like to know more about her Life since My mother never knew her father and i suppose both My mother and granny’ s Life were really tragic. My North node Is in gemini , in twelfth house like my taurus sun and gemini jupiter. My Moon Poseidon conjunction Is now experiencing a pluto saturn conjunction and my Pisces saturn had a neptune conjunction some months ago. What to say? Even though i Am very earthly i feel a bit of an alien and yes i Am honest till It hurts. And, It often hurts a lot. My natural pragmatism (south node in sixth house) Is often clouded by neptune and my Dreams are often big and fragile but i Am learning that there Is nothing bad with It and It Is the journey that matters. I find beautiful to help people in distress. My Mercury psyche Astrea conjunction at the beginning of taurus Is now touched by uranus conjunct and It feels very very strong. With some people It seems like i do not need words to communicate but i feel aware of other channels although It feels like i Am still learning to use this Energy (gemini North node). Another think i would Say Astrea conjunct psyche and Mercury brings to me Is obsession over love bindings. I Just can’t get over love if It was very important to me, i can go on thinking about him for months, even Years without letting anything stop me from doing It. I esperience lots of emotional burnout and It takes me a lot to recover. Besides this I feel very connected to nature and all Its beings.
    Thanks a lot for your precious reply.
    Best

  8. Dear Roberta,
    I could train you. I live in Australia.

    But the best in the world is Dr David Furlong, who lives in The Malvern Hills area of Gloustershire in England. He has written a number of very practical books that will help you. It is always much better to go and do a course with other people, but start with David’s books. just type David Furlong into Google and find his books and then order them from Amazon.

    Don’t hesitate to message me back if you need more help.

    Love and God Bless you,

    Hilary

    • Thanks a lot, for all these information. I live in Italy and nowadays we are experiencing this StayngHome period because of Coronavirus. I would be happy to be trained by you but I don’t know whether this thing is applyable due to being so far from eachother. I contacted Mr Furlong but I suppose my mail went into the spam folder. I read in his website that an ancestral healing course was in October 2019 and do not seem to have others in program. Next days I will try to call him and let you know. Thanks so much for your advice. Be Well
