As we move away from the three eclipses in a row which have been trying to give us a clue to life’s mysteries and to help us to understand, to redirect, to reaffirm our itinerary and to be open to what really matters. The next phase begins as the Full Moon at 22 Capricorn 27 starting at 11:40 pm PDT on July 14th – 15th which culminates in nudging us to answer the call “to be or not to be, that is the question?” After several months of some of the planets forming a stellium, the Universe that has pushed, pulled, reshape and has tried to redirect our goals and wishes, is giving us an ultimatum with Saturn in Libra trine Mars in Gemini, square Venus in Cancer, that changes are needed. For those who have not made an effort for change, the Universe is now forcing our hand to take action that we need to do something before it becomes too late to make a difference. It is becoming who we are and what we really want to do in life that is the urgent agenda being amplified at the moment. When all the doubts and fears are laid aside and what and whom we need to be, comes to the forefront, then and only then do we have the ability and confidence to work through any trials and tribulations our previous actions and thoughts have created for us.
“The Sabian symbol for the Moon in 23 degrees of Capricorn and for the Sun in 23 degrees of Cancer is taken from “The Sabian Symbols in Astrology by Marc Edmund Jones”, and what follows are my comments.
Capricorn 23 Two awards for bravery in war This is a symbol of man’s resourcefulness in developing new areas of experience on the practical side, and of his genius for dramatizing the fruits of an everyday aliveness and thereby stimulating a broadened self-expenditure. The continual effort of an idealistic leadership to hold social and political gains demands an exaltation of personal vision and character, and in understanding of his fellows. The goal of living becomes a preservation of values. The keyword is recognition. When positive, the degree is the social stewardship which demands a continual self-dedication, and when negative, strutting self –exploitation.
Cancer 23 Meeting of a literary society This is a symbol of man’s resourcefulness in developing new areas of experience on the imaginative side, and of his genius for widening his interests and stimulating everybody to broader ideals and more rewarding goals in everyday living. The continual re-examination of a general intellectual and aesthetic inheritance becomes a heightening of personal identity, and the individual achieves a very genuine estimation of his fellows. The keyword is criticism. When positive, the degree is accomplishment through an exacting appreciation of common effort and a rigorous revaluation of private acts and attitudes, and when negative, a substitution of idle discussion for actual participation in reality.
As we continue our incarnation in this life, we need to recognize and understand that our sojourn in this world is like entering a battle field full of explosive mines which we need to navigate with wisdom and intuition to avoid any mishaps or injuries. Our rewards and honors comes from the fact that we realize that some of the frustrations, problems, obstructions, and obstacles in life where of our own making. Life’s problem has been placed in front of our path for our growth and development and should not be taken for granted, but be appreciated for the experience and awareness it instills in each of us. That troubles and frustrations created by our own stupidity and misunderstanding may be easily changed to be a help, instead of a hindrance. Another reward one obtains from living is the ability to learn from one’s mistakes which turns into knowledge, which then cooperates with wisdom and intuition to create the life we are looking and hoping for. The moment we take charge of our life and become what and who we want to be, the magic of creating and working with our life in a inspired uplifting manner will be manifested into reality. If one still hasn’t discovered oneself yet, this Full Moon is nudging us to answer the call “to be or not to be?”
