“Opportunities Are Quick to Disappear Mumbles the 2 Aries 22 New Moon on Mar 22 2012”

As the darkness of night become shorter and the daylight glows brighter and longer with the cold winter air giving way to the warmer and more cheerful weather patterns, a sense that the old ways need to give way to new perspectives and objectives is in the air.  Amid this hopeful atmosphere the 2 Aries 22 New Moon at 7:38 am PDT on March 22nd 2012 appears on the horizon and is subtly mumbling that opportunities are quick to disappear.  The potential of this moon phase is emphasized by the closeness to the vernal equinox, with the concentration of energy in Aries a cardinal sign, the retrograde of Mercury and Mars, with Jupiter trine Pluto, and Neptune into Pisces.  The aspects are warning us that the opportunities for a beneficial outcome is in the air, but that we need to use caution with our actions and thoughts, if we are to take advantage of the moment.  Impulsive thoughts or actions are pitfalls at this point, and the time we have to grasp for the change we need to make, may be sooner to end than we think.  The foundation of our beliefs that we have been building upon is about to be tested and the proof of the pudding will be revealed.  As we enter the year 2012 being set in our mode of handling any situation needs to give way to being alert, open and willing to deal with whatever crosses our path, and the time for action is now.    

“The Sabian symbol for the 3rd degree of Aries is taken from “The Sabian Symbols in Astrology by Marc Edmund Jones”, and what follows are my comments.

Aries 3  A cameo profile of a man in the outline of his country  This is a symbol of a real breadth of participation in everyday affairs, and of the extent to which every individual tends to epitomize the tradition and culture from which he has emerged.  There is here the suggestion of both an impersonal self-dedication to broader community interests and a highly personal dramatization of the self as a focus for group actuality.  The keyword is expectation.  When positive, the degree is man’s capacity for giving full play to every ramification of the reality he has created for himself, and when negative, an unimaginative conventionality which leaves him in bondage to every current stereotype of human relations.

This symbol speaks to us of a personal and yet impersonal involvement of life that spirals around us in that we as unique individuals, representing not only who we are, but as the collective identity of our community, country, heritage, cultural and social traditions.  The implication is that the uniqueness of the individual is overshadowed by his singular expression and dedication to the achievement of social, rather than personal goals and wishes.  This image epitomizes the highest and grandest ideas, talents, and traditions associated with any particular group, organization, country, or the global community.  It encourages enthusiasm, joy and satisfaction that our greatest advantages lie in working towards the achievement of group objectives.  Here the aspects in the night sky come into play by encouraging us to take time out of our busy lives for rethinking, reevaluating, and reviewing what has gone before, and what we want to follow and what we want to bring to fruition for the future.  The Universe is telling us to be certain that if we are representing utopian ideas, thoughts and actions that these concepts are what truly represents who we are and what we really believe and stand for.  The planets in retrograde at this time is telling us to take care and caution in our thoughts, decisions and actions.  Impulsiveness is not the word of the day, but action is, as the 2 Aries 22 New Moon mumbles and reminds us that opportunities are quick to disappear and fade away.
