“New Moon at 24 Taurus on May 13th 2010 Honors Integrity and Dignity!”

Again with anticipation we are approaching a New Moon at 24 degrees Taurus at 6:06 p.m. PDT on May 13th 2010, and as always I feel this is a new start.  Like the Fool card in the tarot deck with all his worldly goods on his back and with innocence he begins his journey to seek and fulfill his purpose.  With a new moon, the two lights are in harmony with each other and give support to one another.  In Taurus, the sense of possessions and what we possess, defines who we are.  With the difficult aspects still lingering, and the need to change, hangs over us.  The change needs to be within our attitudes, prejudices and our point of view if we are to experience the difficulties in store for us with the least of stress and frustration.  Saturn the lord of this decan of the New Moon is demanding this restructure in our thinking if we are to have the ability to learn and grow from our experiences.  It is not just our physical possessions that define us but our emotional and philosophical characteristics and personality that defines us, like our ability to have sympathy, empathy, honor, integrity and dignity.

“The Sabian symbol for the 24th degree of Taurus is taken from “The Sabian Symbols in Astrology by Marc Edmund Jones”, and what follows are my comments.

Taurus 24  A mounted Indian with scalp locks  This is a symbol of pride in personal prowess, and it suggests an exceptional capacity for gaining and administrating authority among men.  There is here an appreciation in the potentials in nature herself, and of the senses as they can be brought to the full service of an individual’s aspiration and ambition. The conquest of an enemy becomes not so much a momentary supremacy over him as an acquisition and subsequent use of his particular genius.  The keyword is command.  When positive, the degree is an unimpeachable control over life through a discipline of the self and its powers, and when negative, a ruthlessness or complete inhumanity in dealing with others.

I am always delighted to intertwine the sabian symbols in my interpretation as they not only confirm what is being said, but gives one new insights with an interesting twist to the interpretation.  Here it seems to say that we must reevaluate our moral and philosophical thinking as far as kindness, sympathy and empathy are concern.  Do our values take in others, or are we just concerned what is happening to us?  Has the internet age isolated us to a narrow approach to humanity?  Are the high tech gadgets the scalps we use to show our personal prowess to others in our group?  The New Moon in Taurus is telling me that how we see and allow sympathy, empathy, kindness and a mind open to new ideas is a way we receive respect from our peers and enemies.  By upholding to the highest standard, our honor, integrity, and dignity are held in tack.  By being open minded we will be able to avoid the stresses and frustrations indicated by the aspects in the heavens.

  1. One thing that I find interesting:

    – this New Moon will be Trine the 15th January eclipse (25º Capricorn).

    So… maybe any type of positive development connected to whatever happened in January?

      Hi. Thanks for your comment, and you are right to refer it to the January eclipse. That is why I spoke about integrity, dignity and honor, which many of our leaders need to take notice, as the global community is beginning to mistrust those who are guiding their countries with all the scandals being revealed.
