“To Take Care as We are the Caretakers Says the 22 Aquarius 21 New Moon Feb 9th 2013”

 

 

Aquarius_2

The second new moon on the horizon after the winter solstice; signals the start of the Chinese New Year, officially beginning February 10th 2013, the year of the Water snake, indicating a year of dramatic and unsuspected changes.  Within this climate of excitement and celebration, the 22 Aquarius 21 New Moon begins it’s sojourn on the 9th of February at 11:21 pm PST, telling us we need to take care as we are the caretakers of our thoughts, our ideas, our fellowmen and all that is within our world.  Caution and concern are the keywords, and our actions and reactions need to be adjusted accordingly, to what is being understood and what we call our own. 

We need to pay attention and not to jump to conclusions, if we are to avoid any mistakes we may regret.  The aspects in the night sky is confirming the meaning of the year of the snake in that what is left unsaid is more important then what is being said.  As all new moons is a chance to begin again, and as it coincides with the celebration of Chinese New Year, it gives us a second chance to review, renew and embark on making our world a better, safer and happier place in the coming months.  It is telling us that we can no longer sit back, and hope all will fall into place.  Action and discipline is essential as we go forth with daring to the dark unknown and uncharted areas of our future.

“The Sabian symbol for the 23rd degree of Sagittarius is taken from “The Sabian Symbols in Astrology by Marc Edmund Jones”, and what follows are my comments.

Sagittarius 23  Immigrants entering  This is a symbol of opportunity caught and held through its effective recognition in advance, here dramatized by the creative faith of those who risk their well-being in bringing their skills into pioneer areas of self-expression.  The human soul must be a consistent manifestation of its own special genius, and the individual escapes any major impasse in his life when he is able to transplant his roots.  Reality is never more sure than when regrasped in a radical reorientation.  The keyword is entrance.  When positive, the degree is courage in crossing new frontiers and skill in repeating or improving on prior achievement, and when negative, a surrender of the real in a pursuit of the false.

This symbol speaks to us of our ability to see and grasp opportunities with our willingness to take risk.  In leaving the safety of what we are familiar with, in the hope of finding greater happiness and satisfaction.  This dramatizes the need to let go of situations that offer no further potential for growth or creative expression, and to reestablish oneself where the possibilities are better.  It emphasizes our capability to make change and to face the unknown with courage.  When the going gets tough, it speaks to our competence to be honest and truthful about ourselves in order to work with what we have.  This Aquarius New Moon is reminding us that we need to choose our thoughts and actions carefully, because being caretakers of them we become responsible for their success or failure.

    • Hi
      Thanks for your visit and comment. The symbol is within you and how you interpret the words of Marc Edmond Jones. How the words speak to you is the symbol you will see before you. What symbol would you call your own in order to describe the feeling you would have as you are about tread the threshold of the unknown? Symbols speak to each one of us in our own terms, and how we express their meanings displays our individualities.
