“To Anticipate is To Participate Repeats the 18 Taurus 05 Full Moon on Nov 10th 2011”

As the winter nights with its cold chill winds sweep through the dark, the 18 Taurus 05 Beaver Full Moon on November 10th 2011 is repeating its message that to anticipate is to participate.  To the indigenous people and the early settlers ofNorth America, this moon phase begins the opportune time to collect the beaver fur for warmth and trade, for the bleak months ahead.  With a trine involving Pluto, Mars and Jupiter, the night sky is telling us to prepare and to be ready for any circumstances that presents it self.  If we wish to be successful in any situation, we need to have as our mantra the motto of the Boy’s Scout “to be Prepare”.  Being prepared, is to use our imagination and our mind to anticipate and prepare for any event that will present it self, in so doing we are participating and working through all eventualities.  This full moon is telling us to think in, out, around, above, and below the box to imagine all possible outcomes, to see which one will reenergize and reinvent our thinking and our lives.

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

Taurus 19  A newly formed continent  This is a symbol of the raw substance of existence, and it suggests that experience may shape its own ground in full conformity with its desires.  Inherent in the symbolism is an awareness of the constant reworking of all reality through the course of successive overall cycles, and it dramatizes the fact that man re-establishes himself continuously within the lineaments of each new realization of his powers and of the opportunities of his world.  The keyword is originality.  When positive, the degree is a revolutionary potentiality by which each individual is enabled to remodel the entire face of the universe, and when negative, a genius for futile turmoil and persistent upset.

Scorpio 19  A parrot listening and then talking  This is a symbol of the raw substance of intelligence, and it suggests that conscious existence can be shaped according to any desired lineaments.  Inherent in the symbolism is sensitiveness to the continual reworking of reality on the ideal or imaginative side, and to the opportunity the individual may have for selecting or rejecting every essential element of his make-up.  Man continually projects the image in which he creates himself.  The keyword is conventionality.  When positive, the degree is exceptional skill in bringing the whole tenor of transient circumstances to the service of a personal aspiration, and when negative, idle mimicry and self-gratifying pretense.

The implication here is that the Universe through its manifested reality is constantly changing and reworking itself into new possibilities.  We need to follow the lead of the Universe and to adapt, to improvise, to think and to act on each moment as it unfolds.  This symbol represents creative and far-reaching vision, new opportunities and transformation for any situation we put our mind to.  At the same time it is reminding us to examine the information we receive, before we repeat or use the information in directing our lives and our future.  It is telling us not to accept blindly, but to double check that it is reliable, accurate and precise before engaging in its use.  Our greatest advantage during these precarious times lies in adjusting and ad-libbing to changing circumstances.  By identifying our potentialities and possibilities, our awareness and realization will be rooted in reality.  This Full Moon in Taurus is like the symbol of the bull, which is staying put, until we get the message that “to anticipate is to participate”.
