“Empathy is the Best Policy Signals the 18 Aries 25 Full Moon on Oct 11th 2011”

As the summer months begin to fade and the chills of the winter winds begin to blow, the celebration of the Hunter’s Moon in which meat was gathered and prepared, that would sustain the community through the dark cold months ahead, begins.  This is commemorated and starts with the 18 Aries 25 Full Moon at 7:07 P.m. PDT on October 11th 2011.  The moon makes a grand trine to the North node and to Mars, with Jupiter in trine to Pluto, which is signaling into our unconsciousness that empathy is the best policy.  The night sky is directing us to gather in our thoughts and to prepare and be ready to take action when the time comes.  It is telling us, to allow our thoughts and convictions to sustain us during the coming months, and when our symbolic spring comes, to allow them to bloom. 

To observe and to maintain without interference, the gem of our ideas that they transform and reinvent themselves into situations and circumstances that will bring us the satisfaction and the happiness we are aiming for.  Empathy is the keyword at this time in which to have the understanding, the sympathy, the compassion for others, and the ability to visualize what it would be like, if one was in their shoes.  But, one of the most important deeds is to consider and to have empathy for ourselves too, when putting these attributes into action.  Not to be so critical about ourselves, and to live, to understand and to feel each moment of our life fully.  We must allow our higher intuition to make and to generate the right choices we personally need for success and joy.

“The Sabian symbol for the Moon in 19 degrees of Aries and for the Sun in 19 degrees of Libra is taken from “The Sabian Symbols in Astrology by Marc Edmund Jones”, and what follows are my comments.

Aries 19  The magic carpet  This is a symbol of the periodic expansion of man’s freedom of spirit and soul through his widely winging interest in potentialities far removed from his normal promise, dramatized here on the side of a vicarious or imaginative self-fulfillment.  There is in consequence a revelation of the mind’s infinite capacity for an overview of experience, or for a participation in the idealistic possibilities without any necessary self-involvement.  Human affairs become personal only to the precise extent desired.  The keyword is panorama.  When positive, the degree is full realization of the broad endowment which every man may make his own, and when negative, detachment from ordinary living and a scorn for the responsibilities.

Libra 19  A gang of robbers in hiding  This is a symbol of the periodic exercise of man’s freedom of spirit and soul in a complete if often unhappy deviation from his normal impulses or attitudes, dramatized here on the side of a practical or everyday self-fulfillment.  Emphasis is on every person’s disturbing capacity for antisocial or even self-perverted practices, or for self-involvement in potentials which may have imaginative but hardly intelligent sustainment in his consciousness.  The reversed symbolism reveals his need for initiative, and for a more challenging perspective.  The keyword is divergence.  When positive, the degree is alertness to every threat against a true individuality, and when negative, abnormal mistrust of everything worth while.

The important key in interpreting these aspects with the Sabian symbol is empathy.  With this attribute in action, the doors are open to give us the space we need, not to be critical or limit our freedom of choice.  When we are at peace and accept ourselves, it is like having a magic carpet symbolizing freedom, optimism, hope, aspiration and the ability to rise above any situation or tribulation.  At this point the accent is creative imagination with the advantage of being able to visualize and to maintain with a clear image of what we wish to accomplish.  This symbol also speaks about our innate freedom to choose the manner in which we will satisfy and complete our desires and wants.  As with any moon phase energies we wish to experience and use, we need to quiet all outer noise and commotion, and allow our intuition to pick up the message.  If we listen, this Full Moon is giving us the signal that “empathy is the best policy”.

    And using Hellenistic terms (also called bounds) Aries 18 is in Mercury’s bounds and Libra 18 will be in Jupiters bounds.
