“The Brilliance of Foresight is Reflected by the 17 Libra 23 Full Moon Apr 6 2012”

As the drab cool colors of the winter months begin to give way to the bright colors of spring, the 17 Libra 23 Full Pink Moon on April 6th 2012 at 12:19 pm PDT is reflecting the brilliance of foresight in our lives.  This month was called the Pink Full Moon in certain parts of the country because during the spring, the ground was covered with pink moss indicating that soon a rainbow full of colors and flowers will grace the landscape.  The brilliance is not in the ability to have a vision or a promise of what the future may be liken to, but the illumination that comes from the participation with the Universe to be the co-creator of what may lie ahead of us.  Knowing full well that what was begun will bring a result that is greater, fuller and more colorful then what was planted. 

In the use of foresight, it is not getting the vision right every time that is important, but in the understanding that practice makes perfect and that we are taking responsibility of our choices and decisions in life.   Pluto may bring the chaos, Jupiter the wisdom, Uranus the curiosity and Mars the momentum to recognize when insight happens; the forerunner of foresight begins its journey to become reality.  Mercury allowing us to comprehend and to communicate what we have experienced at the moment.   Perceptiveness and discernment brings a brilliance and illumination to that which seems drab, stressing that we should never judge a book or situation by what we think we hear or see.

“The Sabian symbol for the Moon in 18 degrees of Libra and for the Sun in 18 degrees of Aries is taken from “The Sabian Symbols in Astrology by Marc Edmund Jones”, and what follows are my comments.

Libra 18  Two men placed under arrest  This is a symbol of the maximum demand that may be made of any individual for self-consistency, and of the absoluteness of compulsions on human nature to provide a balance between inner and outer capacities.  Implicit in the reversed symbolism is the importance of the self’s responsibility to its own essential characteristics, not as a limitation arising from the role it plays in life but as the necessity that the potentials of value in any given situation be brought to some point of immediate and effective function.  The keyword is consequence.  When positive, the degree is a heightened challenge to every special talent, and when negative, total inappropriateness of impulse and act.

Aries 18  An empty hammock  This is a symbol of self-adequacy at its maximum potential for inner reorientation and outer readjustment, and of an utter absoluteness of non-compulsion on man as far as any essential conditioning on self-irrevocability is concerned.  Implicit in the symbol’s staticism is the poise or balance of personal reality between the extremes of pure impulse and act which in each man’s given case would limit the individual and deny his conscious existence.  The keyword is rumination.  When positive, the degree is a thoroughgoing integrity established by the inner reconciliation of outer in harmonies, and when negative, inability to comprehend the conflicts of life and a consistent effort to dodge them.

This speaks to us of the inevitable consequences of our decisions and actions and to the need to take responsibility for the course we have taken.  At the same time it is telling us that if we find ourselves restricted or confined to a situation, it is encouraging us to go within to seek out our potential to find and seek the hidden opportunities in which restrictions and confinements may inspire and create.  Before jumping into a decision that may bring repercussions and consequences we may not desire, we need to hesitate from any wild or impulsive actions and thoughts, to our inner recesses to meditate, to reflect and to ponder.  It is in this moment of tranquility, that the confidence of the inner divine spirit awakens the insight and intuition to do what they do best in our lives.  This moon phase is reminding us of the brilliance that foresight brings into our lives if we only use it to the fullest, which brings the richness of the colors that life has to offer, into reality.
