“Reviewing Our Accomplishments is the Keywords for the Taurus New Moon on April 21”

As the clamor of the colors of spring begins to unfold, so too with the drama connected with the coming presidential elections, the slow recovery of the global economy, and the subtle whispers of the predictions of doom and gloom of 2012 begins to weave and to reveal stories, stranger than fiction could ever tell.  Under the shadows of this underlying dramatization the 01 Taurus 35 New Moon appears on the horizon on April 21st 2012 at 12:20 am PDT emphasizing the need to review our accomplishments if we are to make the right decisions for the coming year.  With Ceres and Vesta flanking the New Moon and Juno trine Mercury conjunct Uranus, these asteroids are aiding and supporting us to stand firm, to nourish, to encourage and to commit unselfishly to work for the good and the benefit of everyone and everything created by the Universe. 

Realizing that everyone and everything is connected, and that we need to work together for the good of all, is the message.  Understanding and comprehending that our worth should not be measured by our material or financial abundance that have been stored up, but by the joy, by the satisfaction, and by the peace of mind we have accumulated.  Have we developed the qualities and assets of seeing, of experiencing, and of living and of being in the moment?  These aspects in the night sky are telling us that our greatest possession is not what can be seen or touched, or accumulated, but that which is unseen, for example our attitude, emotions, and our thirst for knowledge, et cetera that can make a big difference in our lives, and is a possession greater then any amount of gold we can attain.

“The Sabian symbol for the 2nd degree of Taurus is taken from “The Sabian Symbols in Astrology by Marc Edmund Jones”, and what follows are my comments.

Taurus 2  An electrical storm  This is a symbol of man’s real power for making an effective impact on events, dramatized at each moment of issue and crisis by the completeness of his inward self-mobilization.  There is here a catharsis of nature, mirroring the capacity of every individual for discharging the whole complex of strain in his affairs and so clearing the way for a more genuine progress ahead.  Implicit in the symbolism is a terror in the loss of aplomb whenever human personality rises to a moment of union with the universal forces.  The keyword is transformation.  When positive, the degree is a genius for dramatizing both the value at hand and the potentials ahead, and when negative, unreasoning timidity in all self-expression.

This symbol speaks to us of the impact and the power of the energy that is stored up and released and to the awe and fear that can come about where the potential of destruction is not anticipated.  It speaks to us of the breaking point of the stockpile of energy and stress that is inadvertently released or discharged among unsuspecting persons or situations.  As above, so below, explains the power and energy that we too can amass to be use constructively or in a destructive way.  Transformation comes when we unite with wisdom and judgment to come to the realization that it is not what one has, but what one does with what one has, to define who we really are.  This sabian symbol is reinforcing the emphasis of this Taurus New Moon that we need to review our accomplishments to see if it is what we have stored up, that is important, or is it the way we use what we have that is our treasure and success in this life?
