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.

“Seek and Define One’s Sacred Purpose in Life Implies the 7 Leo 24 Full Moon on Jan 26th 2013”

 

As the year continues its journey, the days already seems to fly by and the dark cold winter nights seems to give way to the anticipation, that the warmth of spring is not too far away.  The hope of optimism is ever eternal and present in one’s thoughts and one’s feelings as one faces the unknown expectations and experiences that are about to unfold.  Our faith and trust in promises and the ideology without action, whether they are ours or others, are on shaky grounds.  Our need and necessity to think and feel out of the box and the norm is not only knocking on our door, but is about to break it open.  In this atmosphere the 7 Leo 24 Full Moon on January 26th 2013 at 8:30 pm PST begins to beam its light implying our need to seek and define one’s sacred purpose in life.  The fixed stars in conjunction with Jupiter, Uranus, and Pluto with their aspect with one another are reminding us to take a giant step forward into the unknown and the uncharted areas in understanding our destiny and our feelings and the way we see it.  That to create and to heal comes out of our wisdom and our courage in our sacred beliefs, in which we really are and were we are meant to be.

 

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

 

Leo 8  A Bolshevik propagandist  This is a symbol of the indomitable expectation of the human spirit as it gathers strength from the innermost reaches of man’s own or enduring nature, here emphasized by the recurrent battles over social and political concepts.  The exceptional dynamic involved is seen in the selfless energy developed to an extreme by the revolutionists of each new age.  Implicit in the reversed symbolism is the need of the human community for worthy cause to which to rally in every aspect of its potentials.  The keyword is leaven.  When positive, the degree is a determination to share the soul’s vision and to make a permanent impact on history, and when negative, futile ranting against a multitude of superficial ills.

 

Aquarius 8  Beautifully gowned wax figures  This is a symbol of the ineradicable vanity of the human spirit as it gathers strength not only from the finery it wears but from a superficial display of woman’s form and man’s reputation, here emphasized  through personal idealizations.  A strong psychological dynamic for individual effort comes from the direct influence of outstanding and even notorious people, and implicit in the static symbolism of the waxworks is a necessity to recognize and identify the values worthy of emulation.  The keyword is impact.  When positive, the degree is achievement through the effective dramatization of human character on some level of everyday understanding, and when negative, futile effort to recapture outworn experience.

 

This symbol speaks to us about the fire of passion and the intense hope that rises in our souls when we support a cause we truly believe in.  The emphasis here is the selfless dedication to an ideology, especially when it includes the welfare of all.  The greatest advantage lies in aligning oneself with the most worthy causes, in seeking the greatest good for all concerned.  Implicit in this image is being a positive role model by demonstrating the highest virtues in practical every day living.  Emulation is the first step in achieving the qualities one is seeking to bring about in oneself and the second is the determination to dramatize one’s beneficial qualities by taking a fresh look at oneself and to be able to improvise, rearrange, and experiment until one arrives at the image that truly represents who we are.  Once we come to terms with our self, the direction and the reason for our sojourn in this life will become clear.  As the picture of the real us is established during this full moon period, the energies will unfold and help us to define our sacred purpose in life.

“No Where to Run Except Within Sings the 10 Aquarius 15 Full Moon on Aug 1st 2012”

As the financial and domestic situations seem to linger longer then we hoped or expected, the obvious explanation is attributed to the slower planets.  The effects of an aspect from a slower moving planet will last longer as it fades from being strongly felt to where it is hardly noticed and back again, many times as it continues its journey.  Pluto, the transformer squares Uranus, the innovative as it begins its first of seven exact squares on June 24 2012 indicating major changes are about to happen. Under this influence the 10 Aquarius 15 Full Moon on August 1st 2012 at 8:28 pm PDT is singing that there is nowhere to run except within our higher spiritual intuition to depend on, in order to navigate the inevitable changes we will be experiencing during this period to a successful end or one we will be happy with.  If we are to achieve success of any kind, the Universe is telling us that we need to look within, for the answers lie within our higher spiritual self.  With the full moon in beneficial aspects to Mars and Jupiter, and Saturn trine Venus, the Universe is pointing and helping us to secure the insight and foresight to choose the right path we need to take in order to see the light to our problems.

“The Sabian symbol for the Moon in 11 degrees of Aquarius and for the Sun in 11 degrees of Leo is taken from “The Sabian Symbols in Astrology by Marc Edmund Jones”, and what follows are my comments.

Aquarius 11  Man tête-à-tête with his inspiration   This is a symbol of satisfaction in the transcendental experiences of selfhood, and of a new realization that each individual lives in a consistent intimacy with spiritual verities of every sort  and on every hand.  Implicit in the symbolism is the need to act continually in personal self-interest, and to translate every vision into practical consummation.  As man accepts the overshadowing of a universal life and order, he must demonstrate his own special capacities and rededicate his own individual achievements.  The keyword is ecstasy.  When positive, the degree is an enthusiastic idealism and a tireless desire to serve others, and when negative, complete self-obsession.

Leo 11  Children on a swing in a huge oak tree  This is a symbol of satisfaction in the normal exercise of selfhood, and of a new realization of the high dependability exhibited by man’s physical and social sustainments.  Implicit in the symbolism is a special refreshment of the spirit, but only through a continual development of its responsibilities to its own manifestation of itself.  As each individual accepts the overshadowing of a universal life and order he achieves an ever-better conception of personal reality.  The keyword is delight.  When positive, the degree is a consistent zest for every possible phase of living and a real generosity of self-expenditure, and when negative, laziness exalted as a virtue.

The implication of this symbol is the understanding and the acknowledgement that we are connected and created by a power greater then ourselves, in which we can rely on for support and guidance.  Knowledge is power, but spiritual knowledge is even greater as it creates that which we wish for, if we follow its guidance and support.  This symbol alludes to our higher intuition, higher imagination and the inner communication with our higher self.  The accent is on using these gifts from the Universe by bringing them into reality.  When we go within and trust our higher spiritual self, our personal understanding of our place in the overall scheme of things is heightened and enhanced as the solutions to our problems become clearer.  At this point a momentum is created with enthusiasm, boundless energy, and an eagerness to experience the life that one desires.  With this in mind, we can experience this Aquarius Full Moon with confidence as there is no where to run but within ourselves for the answers.

“Empathy Versus Sympathy Spotlights the 18 Leo 32 Snowy Full Moon on Feb 7th 2012”

I have always thought the full moon is infinitely more interesting than the new moon with its never-ending number of possibilities one can participate in, because of the dynamics of the opposition of the lights fighting for one’s attention.  It is like seeing the glass half full or half empty when one is reevaluating and rethinking about the accomplishments we have accumulated from our decisions we have made during our sojourn in this life.  It depends on the situation and the condition of how we see and interpret the circumstances, which determines how we view the contents of the glass.  This Snowy Full Moon at 18 Leo 32 at 1:56 p.m. PST on February addresses this by spotlighting the attributes of empathy versus that of sympathy.  The aspects are subtly pushing and pulling us, in their effort to convince the subconscious its need to take the lead for those who mean something to us.  The moon phase is emphasizing that during this pivotal period all our actions and reactions need to be done with feeling and being, if we are to see our wishes and dreams become reality.  It is directing us to go beyond our intellectual state of sympathy to understanding the underlying circumstances into the emotional state of empathy.

“The Sabian symbol for the Moon in 19 degrees of Leo and for the Sun in 19 degrees of Aquarius is taken from “The Sabian Symbols in Astrology by Marc Edmund Jones”, and what follows are my comments.

Leo 19  A houseboat party  this is a symbol of creative relaxation as a prelude to effective effort, and of man’s normal capacity for achievement through an everyday rehearsal of co-operative relationships with his fellows.  There is here a sealing off of some pleasant pocket of life for an intensified culture of the skills and inspiration which can implement a contribution to the world at large.  Any dull routine of existence may be exalted as a common adventure in self-expenditure.  The keyword is congeniality.  When positive, the degree is a gracious eagerness of participation in the more worthwhile or enduring aspects of human affairs, and when negative, thoughtless self-indulgence and contempt for the general welfare.

Aquarius 19  A forest fire quenched  This is a symbol of regenerative relaxation after extraordinary effort, and of man’s exceptional capacity for achievement through the whole-giving of himself in am emergency.  Here is the dynamic co-operation by which the individual gains a high peak of self-expenditure, and in the moment’s intensification rehearse potentialities he would never discover otherwise.  What can be misfortune to be suffered can as easily become a successful adventure in broad social responsibility.  The keyword is concern.  When positive, the degree is special skill in bringing personal interests to some larger point of effectiveness, and when negative, a fear of experience and a sublet delight in calamity.

The Snowy Full Moon, also known as the Hungry Full Moon was named by the native tribes’ ofNorth Americabecause they considered February, the month with the harshest weather conditions.  This helped to forewarn and remind them that this particular month’s weather conditions made hunting very difficult to provide for the sustenance and for the livelihood of the community during the bitter part of winter.  The Sabian symbols are suggesting that not only through the good, but even during the difficult and trying times to create an occasion for relaxation and creative play.  The emphasis is fellowship that becomes the means for cultivating the resources in which all accomplishments of lasting value is achieved.  In this environment one discovers personal skills and abilities previously unrecognized, and the aptitude to rise above any situation or crisis one encounters.  We need to remind ourselves that this kind of activity is nourishment for our soul and spirit in which to help us to create a shelter from our own negative thoughts and feelings when they come upon us like the falling snow.  This Leo Moon is allowing us to develop new inspirations and adventures, by spotlighting and demonstrating the results we can achieve with empathy and sympathy.

“A Template for Action Stresses the 2 Aquarius 41 New Moon on January 22nd 2012”

With the dark cold winter nights making their impact on our lives and the financial situation which seems to continue to linger with the backdrop of the prediction of 2012 hovering, a sense of disquiet is in the atmosphere surrounding our every movement.  Within this climate the 2 Aquarius 41 New Moon on January 22nd 2011 at 11:41 p.m. PST makes its appearance stressing that the pattern in the night sky is a template for action.  With Jupiter and Saturn squaring the New Moon, the aspects are not asking us, but pushing us into action, even if we are not mentally or emotionally ready for whatever is on the horizon.  The feeling that permeates the air is that action of any kind whether beneficial or malefic to the situation, is better then no action at all.  Jupiter trine with Pluto is indicating that any endeavor with thought behind it, is a step towards the right way, and that each step combines to make one giant step closer to our final objective with joy and satisfaction.  Each stride and activity will reenergize, revitalize, reinvent and will make the final transformation that much more adaptable to whatever we put our mind to.  Putting actions behind our thoughts and ideas and bringing them into reality is the keyword for this moon phase.

“The Sabian symbol for the 3rd degree of Aquarius is taken from “The Sabian Symbols in Astrology by Marc Edmund Jones”, and what follows are my comments.

Aquarius 3  A deserter from the navy  This is a symbol of human independence carried to a point of extreme rebellion against things as they are, here emphasized in a disregard of all consequences for the sake of an immediate liberation of the spirit.  There is a demand for a more rewarding expression of individuality, and the reverend symbolism suggests that any late acceptance of full and personal responsibility for life is better than none at all.  Except as man creates his own allegiances, his destiny holds no depth.  The keyword is defiance.  When positive, the degree is genuine psychological courage in a repudiation of all meaningless loyalties, and when negative, complete inability to follow the rules of any game.

This symbol is reinforcing the message that something needs to be done about our state of affairs, but caution is indicated that our choice of action must be well thought out, if we wish not be in a position that creates more of a problem then it solves.  The image depicts a need to escape the circumstances by running away from it.  At the same time it shows courage to correct the mistake that was made, even it if in the long run the resolution is not helpful.  This reinforces the need to pay attention and think thoroughly through any situation, before making a decision that may impact our lives in ways we may not have the foresight to foresee.  Taking responsibility of our choices is the first step in increasing our chances that we will acquire more care and thought in any action we take on.  Remembering and using the law that “every cause has its effect” will prevent us from making hasty decisions we may later regret.  This also infers that to every ending has a new beginning and that every beginning has its ending, and with this in our subconscious our decisions will be more purpose driven.  This Aquarius New Moon is allowing us to work with the energies of the stars and planets to create the momentum for action by thoroughly thinking through the situation for our wishes and goals to be accomplished.

“Is the Planet Uranus with Mercury and Steve Jobs, Kindred Spirits?”

As an admirer and fan of the vision and the accomplishments of Steve Jobs, I believe the adorations and the tributes expressed by the media are well deserved.  He had a determination and persistence to follow through even when criticism and doubt came from his own peers and organization, which shows the conviction and belief he had in his vision.  After seeing the results of his labors, no one can deny his ability to visualize the needs, wants, and wishes of the consumer before they even realized it.  His natal chart describes a person who has the ability to express, to communicate, and to convince others of his vision and ideas.  This desire to create was energized by his innate need to express his feelings, receptivity, sensitivity and nurturing to create products for the consumer that was a must have, without the consumer consciously realizing the need until the possession and the use of the product.

No wonder Mr. Jobs is considered an icon for the Aquarian age and the high tech revolution.  For me he is also an icon and a kindred spirit for all of us who follow the beat of a different drummer, an inspiration and a reason that gives us the foundation and strength for not giving up or giving in to that which gives meaning and essence to our existence and to our every step we take.  That we need to reassure ourselves that we are not alone, and that there are others out there making their own music and leading their own parade.  He is an example for all of us that thinking out of the box and beyond with the determination to follow our own vision can be a reality with its own rewards and satisfactions.  It is not important or necessary that we succeed in our fields like he did.  What is important is that we do not get discourage in bringing into reality our own dreams, and that we continue to follow the music within.

Using the data for Steve Jobs I discovered on the internet, the ruler of both the ascendant and mid heaven is Mercury in the sign of Aquarius.  This I found interesting as Uranus is in the sign of Cancer relating to the Moon in Aries in connection with Saturn in Mars trine to Jupiter conjunct Uranus.  His planets and aspects bouncing off each other as they do, it is no wonder that he is the poster child for the high tech world with his vision of what the world would be like in the twenty first century.  His Mercury representing how he saw himself and how others saw him and his ingenious ways he saw things with the planet being directly influenced by Uranus conjunct Jupiter on the verge of entering the house of helpful friends, helpful wishes and helpful visions.  There was no way he would see things in the normal way or could respond to the way everyone else saw or experienced the moment.  His ability to see beyond what everyone else saw and more, speaks to his innate nature to see the possibilities before they became apparent.

Mr. Jobs is a kindred spirit to the high tech world, Mercury, Uranus and for anyone that thinks outside of the box and for all those with determination who do not give up until their vision becomes reality.  Astrology too is a kindred spirit as we stand outside of the main stream thinking, and until we use and work with it, we don’t realize how useful, important, and constructive it is in our daily lives.  To honor the memory of one of many who led the way, kindred spirits around the world need to follow his example by standing strong to their own vision, no matter the criticism and lack of faith and vision of others.  As long as there is some sort of aspect or connection between Mercury and Uranus, it will indicate an individual who hears and sees things differently.  By using these energies to their fullest we not only show our gratitude and respect, but we honor the gift the Universe has given to us, by becoming kindred spirits and seeing the world in a different light.

“Methodical Persistence Creates Metamorphosis with the 3 Scorpio 2 New Moon on Oct 26th”

 

As the daylight becomes shorter and the dark of the night becomes longer, and the winds commence to blow with the weather getting colder, we are pressed by the subliminal to realize our need to revisit, reinvent, and reenergize our thinking.  As the winter begins to claim its share of the year, our instincts and intuition is telling our subconscious and our soul, that we need to store up, knowledge and information so we may arrange them into a logical sequence for use when the time is right.  As the ideas and thoughts are molded into our desires and are taken hold by our subconscious, only then will they blossom and materialize, creating mental magic.  With all new moons we are given a blank slate to begin new projects, and there is no exception with 3 Scorpio 2 New Moon on October 26 2011 at 12:55 pm PDT which is urging us that methodical persistence creates metamorphosis.

 

The New Moon is in opposition to Jupiter in Taurus, is trine toNeptunein Aquarius, is sextile to Pluto in Capricorn, and with Mars in Leo sextile to Saturn in Libra.  These aspects are asking us to question our understanding of our beliefs, morals, rules and regulations we stand for and defend as our own, in which we live by.  If there is any reasonable doubt our viewpoint is not just and fair to all, because our perceptions and our ability to see through the mist of illusions and delusions at this time may be hindered.  We must be flexible and be able to improvise a solution that can deliver what we believe and what we stand for.  We need to acquire the intensity and the methodical persistence to follow through what we started and believe in.  At this point in time, it is not important that we accomplish the fulfillment of our desires and the purpose of our sojourn, but the way and the how we try to bring it about, which is vital to our wellbeing.   

 

“The Sabian symbol for the 4th degree of Virgo is taken from “The Sabian Symbols in Astrology by Marc Edmund Jones”, and what follows are my comments.

 

Scorpio 4  A youth holding a lighted candle  This is a symbol of a true contact with inner and transcendental realms of reality, and of the rewards to the spirit which come from a realization of the continuing ties between the least of individuality and universal life as such.  There are always evidences of higher meaning and immortal value in each moment’s detail of everyday living, and there is an enthusiasm which arises from an ever-clear vision to bring every possible sustainment to man in his outer and practical world.  The keyword is reliance.  When positive, the degree is an unquenchable and irresistible confidence in the goodness and integrity of all things, and when negative, a simple-minded impracticality if not a very unhealthy self-obsession.

This Sabian symbol emphasizes the need to come into this world with the innocence and the wonderment of a child and in having the wisdom, the respect and the understanding of the implications the candle represents and stands for.  This candle speaks to us of enlightenment, vision, inspiration, clarification, illumination, radiance and discernment in all matters.  Its light brings an awareness of the ultimate sacredness of all life, and the message, that the divine spirit flows through all life and matter.  This light in the dark represents discernment and searching for higher meanings and significances in every experience.  The candlelight points the way for others in the dark to see things more clearly and to lead the way out of darkness.  Even with knowledge and wisdom, unrelenting action is needed to reach the goals we set for ourselves and once there we will come to the realization, we have changed.  The transformation may be more dramatic then we may become conscious of.  To achieve our purpose and to bring about change, we need to follow the message of this Scorpio Moon, which urges us that methodical persistence creates metamorphosis.
