“To Know and To Be Thyself Emphasizes the 21 Sag 45 New Moon on Dec 13 2012”

 

As the daylight hours continue to shorten and the winter winds become stronger, we will soon begin to realize that within the darkness lay the mysteries and the reasons of our fears and apprehensions.  And with every shadow lies the uncertainty we must deal with, as we journey through the still of the night.  The winter solstice approaches in connection with the Mayan prophesy announcing the beginning of a new age or epoch about to descend upon us is like the shadows in the dark, we must deal with.  Depending on how we approach these shadows and the attitudes we have at the moment, will determine the success we have in overcoming whatever fears that lies within us, and the accomplishments that will be made.  In this foreboding atmosphere the 21 Sagittarius 45 New Moon makes its appearance on December 13th 2012 at 12:42 am PST emphasizing that to know and to be thyself will be our saving grace in dealing with whatever the future is about to lay in our path for our growth.

 

With Saturn and Pluto creating a finger of God aspect towards Jupiter, which may trigger major life events that may turnout to be too complicated to handle without caution, understanding and sensitivity, indicating a great need for resourcefulness and creativity to overcome any situations or difficulties we may encounter.  It will take enormous initiative and fortitude to overcome the limitations created by the yod aspect, also known as the finger of God.  Although it is truly a blessing, the first encounter with this aspect allows us to see and experience the difficulties of the growing pains, and the lessons of the trials and the errors one always needs to experience in order to grow.  The lesson here lies in whether we learn from our experiences and move onward and forward, or whether we use the stumbling block as an excuse to continue as we have.  As the solstice indicates a major turning point to reconsider and to rethink where we have been, it is also suggesting that a new era is upon us and that we need to take more care and restraint on the decisions and the directions we are about to embark upon.  We need to move ahead with caution and alertness to the dangers that may abound. 

 

“The Sabian symbol for the 22nd degree of Sagittarius is taken from “The Sabian Symbols in Astrology by Marc Edmund Jones”, and what follows are my comments. 

 

Sagittarius 22  A Chinese laundry  This is a symbol of complete self-refinement through the unsuspected or even generally unaccepted activities of the community, and of a consummation of the being through specialized interests which may tend to deny man his more superficial communion with his fellows.  A richness of living comes from a concentration on goals with remote reward, and from an association in spirit with souls of very high achievement.  Here is imaginative self sustainment through unremitting hard labor.  The keyword is seclusion.  When positive, the degree is an unusual gift for maintaining poise and self-perspective in every unfamiliar or alien situation, and when negative, unnecessary acceptance of self-inferiority.

 

This symbol speaks to us of self-refinement and the total environment of providing a service by physical or mental means which would improve the self assessment of the individual and by giving the individual the confidence to go into the world with integrity and honor to fulfill their purpose in this life.  The laundry may appear to be menial and unimportant in affecting the course of our lives, but with cleaned and pressed garments, the person goes forth into the world with confidence and assurance.  This enforces and confirms the message of the night sky, that in truly knowing who we really are and being able to express it, is like having clean clothes creating an atmosphere which enhances our ability to deal with any circumstances and come out of it with flying colors.  Who we are, is symbolic like the clean attire we put on, it reinforces our self-confidence, allowing the world to see us as we really are and wish to be.  To know thyself is one of the essential ingredients for success, to be oneself is the motivation factor that materializes. The Sagittarius New Moon is telling us to know and to be thyself is the impetus to make things happen as the world enters into a new epoch of growth.
