“The Answer Lies Within Ourselves Whispers the 18 Virgo 13 Full Moon on March 8th 2012”

The winter doldrums are beginning to fade as the first signs of spring are in the air, with expectations and hopes that new answers and new visions will be forthcoming to help solve new and reoccurring situations.  As we continue to ask, seek, and search for solutions for problems that seem to have staying power with subtle annoyances making their presence felt.  The 18 Virgo 13 Full Moon on March 8th 2012 at 1:41 am PST is whispering to us that the answer lies within ourselves.  We have handed over the handling of the financial downturn to others in high places because we thought they had the qualifications, the requirements, the knowledge, the wisdom, and the sense of duty and responsibility to guide us in the right direction from the state of affairs they have created.  Because of this action we have given up our right, our privilege and our initiative to come to our own conclusions and have accepted the responsibility of the decisions of others in the creation of our future. 

We have seen this play out in the real world around us, and the results have not been pretty or what we have hoped for.  This moon phase is signaling to us that we need to depend on our own ingenuity, intuition and insights to develop or solve our personal tribulations and to be responsible, and not to follow or be led by the conditions or the prevailing thoughts and conclusions that surround us.  Whether the moments are problems or opportunities, are we delving into and asking the right questions, in order to arrive at the right answers and solutions?  With the square to Juno and the conjunction to Pallas, the aspects are confronting us to see the truth of the issues, to face up to it and to work with our spiritual beliefs and conviction to bring our dreams and hopes into reality.  This full moon is demanding us to make and take responsibility for our lives, whether personally or as a global community, if we are to see a better tomorrow.   

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

Virgo 19  A swimming race  This is a symbol of the utter impartiality of existence in any larger dimension, and of the stimulus of direct competition whenever an individual seeks to perfect or enjoy some one of the special skills comprising his individuality.  He discovers that it is necessary to control every separate factor of his being, or else be ruled by the divergencies which make them up apart from their function within himself.  Life superficially remains in unstable balance, and survival is in the terms of that effectiveness or excellency which is best able to prove itself.  The keyword is elimination.  When positive, the degree is man’s capacity for any extreme of self-pointedness he may find valuable in a given case, and when negative, inadequate self-dramatization.

Pisces 19  A master instructing his pupil  This is a symbol of the unlimited potentiality of existence in any larger dimension, and of the demand of human intelligence for the self-refinement and self-orientation by which a greater understanding is possible.  Life entreats the individual to employ its privileges and enjoy its bounty, and gives every encouragement to that initiative of spirit by which he may be led to do so.  He finds that personality comes into its own as it is able to direct its own destiny.  The keyword is elucidation.  When positive, the degree is high executive ability through patient investigation and genuine psychological insight, and when negative, a desire to live by rule and a conceit of empty knowledge.

Implicit in this symbol is the concept of self discipline with the need to give up something in order to gain proficiency and perfection in our assets and talents we need to achieve in accomplishing our desires and dreams.  There are no winners or losers, as the competition helps each one of us to hone our skills to eliminate and to process those abilities that will work for us, and to recognize the liabilities that will hinder.  It is also telling us to take responsibility, to take control, to make the effort, and to learn to perfect the skills we need to meet the obstacles that life places in front of us.  That we can not rely on others to face the challenges, without us doing the homework too, and to understand what lies ahead.  This image subtly implies that time may be of the essence, and we need to acquire the knowledge, information and skill sooner than we thought or realize.  As we encounter life in 2012, we need to remind ourselves that this 18 Virgo 13 Full Moon is whispering to us that the answer lies within ourselves.

    Where I live this will have an Aquarius rising 7 degrees but this hits right on my natal descendant. It puts both Venus and Jupiter in the 4th house event chart.

    The answer always lies within ourselves. It’s a matter of being strong enough to take the first step.

    May we all have the necessary insight and strength to do what’s best.
