As the darkness and the coldness of the winter months begins to dim and give way to the hint that spring is around the corner, the transits of the planets have begun to paint their own stories in the night sky of what is about to commence. With many of the planets in a cluster, signifying that a concentrated effort is needed in order to make things happen, and that minor events will give way to what really matters at the moment. It is like the calm before the storm, that something is about to happen, and we are not quite sure what it is, but we feel deep within ourselves that it is more important then we realize. In this tranquil climate the 7 Virgo 24 Full Moon on February 25th 2013 at 12:27 pm PST is asking the question, “What do we consider our treasure that we need to cherish, to nourish, and which sustains who we are?”

Many may think it is the material things that we collect and surround our self with that defines who we are in this life. Our position at work, our salary, or the end results of our hard work that we have accomplished that brings the honor, esteem and the accolades from our co-workers. The planets in the night sky tell a different story, in that it is who we are, what we stand for, and the way we think that truly makes the differentiation of how we achieve what we truly desire and want in this life. These are the treasures in our life, which are the secret weapons and talents that we need, to honor, to cherish and to nourish any success and satisfaction we will have. We must remember that the outward material things may spoil and turn to dust, but what is truly within us is always there, and is capable of creating, recreating and sustaining our dreams and wishes.

“The Sabian symbol for the Moon in 8th degrees of Virgo and for the Sun in 8th degrees of Pisces is taken from “The Sabian Symbols in Astrology by Marc Edmund Jones”, and what follows are my comments.

Virgo 8 First dancing instruction This is a symbol of the self-perfecting required for the many different forms of man’s participation in the experience of his fellows, illustrated here in a potential excellence of special skills. The dance of life includes infinite versions of its rhythm and provides illimitable variations on the theme of its melody, but there must be some specific encouragement of individual ability as a stimulus to effective endeavor. Necessary always is that initial trial of self which in time leads to a continuity of effort. The keyword is assistance. When positive, the degree is achievement through a personal competence and a high gift for co-operation, and when negative, cheerful acceptance of ineptitude.

Pisces 8 A girl blowing a bugle This is a symbol of the self-perfecting required for the many different forms of man’s participation in the experience of his fellows, illustrated here in his successful achievement and discharge of group responsibility. Life’s activities may have a myriad modifications, but human personality must make one of these its special charge as a basis for its own fulfillment. The individual challenges his fellows and is challenged by them in turn at each recurring points of special potentiality. The keyword is summons. When positive, the degree is an eagerness for self-expression and an alertness to every opportunity for self-justification, and when negative, officiousness and delight in regimentation.

This symbol speaks to our innate knack to find our own niche in this world and our ability for self perfection and learning through instructions and observations. The image alludes to coordination, gracefulness, and flexibility at the skills necessary for successfully achieving any situation one attempts in life. It is not the end result that is important, but rather the competence, the cooperation and the extraordinary asset to visualize and to work towards the desired outcome, even if it is not realized at the moment. It is what is learnt that becomes part of the valuable items in our treasure chest. The wisdom to know when to continue and when to change directions will be the keys to the treasures we wish to accumulate. This symbol reveals to each one of us, of the self-refinement and the development of the special expertise and skill we each have within us that we will need to fine tune, to be ready to use it when we need it to bring about our dreams. This full moon is reminding us that we need to focus on what is truly in our treasure chest that can never be stolen, and is always ready and available to achieve our dreams and wishes.
