On January 19th 2011 at 1.22 p.m. PST is the fourth of the five Full Moons in a row that are in the last degrees of a sign. Besides being predisposed to the sign it is about to leave, it is starting to be influenced by the sign it is moving towards. The Moon is the ruler of the sign of Cancer and so it is happy and at home here, and is about to enter into the sign of Leo ruled by the Sun. As the energy of the Moon moves into Leo, it is reminding us that the environment we have surrounded ourselves with and that which is nourishing us, is the key to our happiness and success. We must question ourselves that what we are working towards is what we really want? If we have any thoughts and doubts, we need to rethink, reevaluate and rework the matter at hand. With a stellium in Capricorn, our need to put our best foot forward is extremely important, if we are to gain the respect of our peers and have the ability and the essential paraphernalia to successfully accomplish our dreams and wishes. At this point in time to have a plan that has been thoroughly thought out is the essential solution to work with, as the aspects of the planets are cautioning us about the future, and our place in it. The light at the end of the tunnel is our calling card to continue the journey with determination, faith, hope and the consciousness of experiencing and living each moment to the fullest.
“The Sabian symbol for the Moon in 30 degrees of Cancer and for the Sun in 30 degrees of Capricorn is taken from “The Sabian Symbols in Astrology by Marc Edmund Jones”, and what follows are my comments.
Cancer 30 A Daughter of the American Revolution This is a symbol of the enduring background in human relations as essentially dependent on an established tradition, and of a willingness to maintain it through a sharp rejection of any modifying influence of unsympathetic times or events. The emphasis here on an outer conservatism carries with it an implicit warning against any mere resistance to change, and also stresses the need for a life which is exemplary through its faithfulness to standards of proved worth. The keyword is inheritance. When positive, the degree is an infectious pride in leadership through which a group is able to act as a unit, and when negative, the ultimate betrayal of selfhood by a false assumption of superiority.
Capricorn 30 A Secret business conference This is a symbol of the momentary background in human relations as essentially the product of current activities and attitudes, and of a determination to capitalize on any given situation through effective allegiances among the principal personalities involved. The emphasis here is on man’s desire for an inner circle of associates through whom he may exercise a real control over immediate eventualities, and on his realization that in this fashion he may monopolize the resources of his fellows. The keyword is opportunity. When positive, the degree is a gift for clever planning and successful administration in every area of life, and when negative, rampant selfishness and rank exploitation of others.
The traditions and inheritance we are handed down by our friends, family, ethnic group, and the country we abide in, is the dignity, integrity and honesty that is inherent in the spirit of the human race, as we are the reflection of the Divine Universe. It is by putting our inheritance into action for the whole that success and satisfaction ultimately becomes reality. The moment we consider the part, greater then the whole unit, we have lost the power and energy that is inherent in every one of us working together. As we start the new calendar year, the Zodiac is telling each of us to live each minute fully and to nourish the spirit of that moment in time.
