“Don’t Look Back Warns the 21 Pisces 24 New Moon on March 11th 2013 at 12:52 pm PDT”

As we approach the Spring Equinox for the new anthropological year of 2013, we come upon the last New Moon before the period at 21 Pisces 24 on March 11th 2013 at 12:52 pm PDT. By considering the aspects with the other planets in the night sky, it becomes apparent it is signifying the necessity to review and to make a major change in our consciousness and our spiritual values. This phase of the moon is warning us not to look back, but to look forward to the future in a new light with the emotions and the viewpoints of seeing it as a child. In this way we experience each moment as something new and not some repetition of the past. With the grouping of planets known as a stellium in Pisces including Mars, Venus, Chiron, Mercury, and Neptune, it is indicating the areas we need to concentrate on, which is the following: our spiritual and transcendental thoughts and experiences, our values, our emotions, our intuitions, our imaginations and our creativity.

A Stellium of planets is a concentrated and heightened level of focus in the area of the sign and house it falls in, in the chart one is delineating. This leads to the characteristics associated with the signs, the houses and the aspects it makes with the angles and the other planets, to be the influence and to become the dominant factors. It is not only felt by us as individuals, but within the larger picture of our community, country and the global whole as one. The type of influences affecting each group will be indicated by the chart used to represent each of them. Individually, it is determined in what area the stellium of planets are in our natal chart and the aspects it makes with it. In some charts the power to change the situation is subtle, but with others the underlying energy and force is so powerful, it becomes the main focal point during this period. However we feel the energy, whether it is slight or potent, we know the moment for action is now or never.

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

Pisces 22 A man bringing down the new law from Sinai This is a symbol of the eternal authority implicit in the very fact of man’s ideals, and of a spiritualization of experience through the religious insights of human society and the institutions it has created for the common welfare. The inspired prophets of each age have been custodians of an enduring morality, and this has its embodiment in the mountain-top aspiration of even the least of individuals. Right is dramatized as a personal responsibility for the course of events. The keyword is mandate. When positive, the degree is self sacrifice and a determination to further the ultimate upliftment of all men, and when negative, self-exploitation and impenetrable egotism.

This symbol speaks to us of our inner spiritual and higher revelations which brings insights and awareness from a higher authority we need to begin to learn to rely on. It also speaks to us of our ability to have mystical and spiritual experience that can transform the way we as individuals and as a group live our lives. At its most lofty state, it has the ability to transform and to regenerate our personal moral integrity, our willingness for personal sacrifices and our personal commitment in making a difference in our own life and the lives of others. No matter how deeply we feel the energies of this New Moon, it is warning us not to look back, but to concentrate our energies towards creating a better future for ourselves and the planet. The concerted energies of the planets are reminding us that the power to create a better tomorrow is within each of us and the time should be now to bring into fruition our dreams.


“The 21 Scorpio 56 Solar Eclipse on Nov 13th is Stressing the Passion for Candidness”


Drama and intrigue is in the air as the cold winter winds blow with Chiron and Neptune in Pisces as they are exchanging glances with Ceres in Cancer, while Mercury Retrograde is in Sagittarius.  The tragedies and the schemes being played out by the aspects in the night sky is being reflected and mirrored within our own conscience.  Solar eclipses are extra powerful New Moons, signaling a time of major endings and the first stages of major beginnings.  On November 13th 2012 is not only a super moon, indicating its closeness to the earth and at the same time, a partial solar eclipse at 21 Scorpio 56 at 3:09 pm PST is stressing the passion for candidness.  Our own sense of right and wrong is demanding us to be honest with ourselves and to have the integrity to step up to the plate when called on.  During this period of time the energies of the moon exposes what we think is our dark side, our secret passions, our fears, our inabilities to cope and the trepidation of not accomplishing and completing one’s destiny.  Our higher inner voices with the push from the influences of the planets are telling us, to shut up or put up. 


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


 Scorpio 22  Hunters starting out for ducks  This is a symbol of the sim0licity of self-expression and the straightforward honesty of desire which men tend to exhibit from birth in nearly every realm of normal or everyday activity, and of the average individual’s need for genuine psychological elbow-room in his dealing with world about him.  Here is freedom of action willy-nilly, as marked in the frequent determination of the human spirit to have this by one means if not by another.  The keyword is enterprise.  When positive, the degree is a complete lack of personal frustration and a constant refinement of special and practical skills in the approach to daily problems, and when negative, a callous exploitation of all life.


This symbol speaks to us of our agenda, our directness and our ability to get to the point whether it is politically correct or not.  It confirms our mission and our strong sense of purpose.  At the same time it subtly implies a lack of restriction, a lack of freedom and a lack of compassion.  This symbol connects well with the aspects in the night sky as it suggests a need to get to the root of the matter, if we are to have a solution to any problem.  It is asking us to go within and candidly review who we are and where we are going.  This is the time to clean our minds of clutter, get rid of old hurts and throw out the dark secrets.  We need to have more transparency, so we can begin to comprehend where we are really coming from and to where we really are going.  With Mercury in retrograde our meditations during this period will surprise us with insights that will amaze us.  As the energies of an eclipse is powerful, may we become more aware and more appreciative of it, and may we heed the message it is sending to us with the passion we have within us.


“Let Go and Go With the Flow is the mood of the 23 Virgo 37 New Moon Sept 15

As the world turns, it seems to be speeding faster into tomorrow, ever since the twenty first century began.  So it appears that the year 2012 is taking its cue from all the incredible technological advancements, and zooming ever so faster into the next year.  I t seems like only yesterday, which was the beginning of the year, but already the 23 Virgo 37 New Moon is making its appearance on September 15th 2012 at 7:11 pm PDT emphasizing our need to let go and go with the flow.  With Mars square Venus Trine Uranus square Pluto sextile Chiron, the need to take drastic action because we are pushed into it, is essential at the moment, even if all we do is to improvise as the situation continues its forward motion.  At the moment the aspects are telling us not to reason why, but to make the best of what is happening and to try to get in touch with our higher inner self for revelations, to help us make some radical changes and decisions to secure a better future.

It is also telling us to return to the time when the power of love was the theme and the aim of a new revolution and revelation.  This time it is not a freedom loving revolution, but a compassionate renewal for all things created by the Universe.  Unless we begin to see that all life and things created by the Universe is interconnected and needs to live in harmony, then only chaos can be the result, and that is what we are seeing all around us at the moment.  Unfortunately, unless we begin to take action to make some far-reaching changes, the results of our causes and effects, will come upon us sooner and more sweeping and dramatic, then we could ever imagine.  The Universe in its compassion is directing our higher thoughts to the direction we need to take, but we need to continue the movement by active participation, if we are to avoid and to side step some of the trials and tribulations of our own making.  It is directing us to the flow, but now we need to take control and work with it.      

“The Sabian symbol for the 24th degree of Virgo is taken from “The Sabian Symbols in Astrology by Marc Edmund Jones”, and what follows are my comments.

Virgo 24  Mary and her white lamb   This is a symbol of the self-adequacy of experience on the inner or subjective side, or of that fullness of life which comes through a cherishing of young ideas.  The healthy approach to heaven through a child’s wide-eyed expectation is a clue to the adult’s responsibility for his potentials.  These he must take with him in a very conscious fashion wherever he goes if he is not to find himself divided within himself and so defeated by his own confusion.  The keyword is artlessness.  When positive, the degree is illimitable patience and adroitness in personal accomplishment, and when negative, futile show-off and idle boasting.

This symbol speaks of the necessity for us to see the world with a youthful perspective, by seeing life through the eyes of a child.  This symbolizes the innocence, the trust, the purity, the receptivity, and the experience of being without the complexities that come from age and the repetition of life.  Our responsibility is to let go of what we think we can and cannot do and to reawaken the potential that everything is possible with no limitations to accomplishing our dreams, or experiencing and seeing the wonders that life has to offer.  Our responsibility and greatest advantage lies in our ability to keep an open mind and to always expect the best.  With this attitude, the drastic modifications we need to make will be seen as opportunities instead of the necessities of change.  As we approach this Virgo New Moon, let us remember that the drastic change we need to make at this time may be to let go and go with the flow trusting in the wisdom of the Universe.

Take Action or Fall Short with Visionary Imagery Echoes the May 20th 2012 Solar Eclipse”


Solar eclipses are like all new moons, which signals endings and beginnings, but unlike the regular phase of the moon they are major influences that are felt in different degrees depending on the astrological aspects and the sensitivity of the individual.  For some of us the change and the revitalization are obvious, and for others the transformation is hardly noticeable, but others may sense it inwardly.  As one season begins to fade and a new one is about to start, this period’s significant lunation at 00 Gemini 20 with its mystical and magical influences are about to be release on the global atmosphere on May 20th 2012 at 4:48 pm PDT echoing that we need to take action with our visionary imagery and see what possibilities exist.  By ignoring or missing the message it may have for us, we will be falling short of fulfilling our wishes, hopes and dreams for the future.


This Gemini eclipse conjunct the south nodes trine Neptune and Chiron with close proximity to Jupiter, Mercury, and Ceres, is intimating that past events are effecting, and are needed to be incorporated in turning our present and future decisions into reality we hope for and would like to see happen.  The results from our past actions seem to have come back to haunt us.  This explains and gives meaning to the words Karma and Dharma in that we need to choose our thoughts, expressions and actions with care and caution as they may return to us as unwelcomed quests.  The world of imagination and fantasy has opened its portals during this time period to be available at our fingertips to help us see beyond our normal capabilities into the creative thinking of tomorrow and beyond, to solve some of the obstacles, problems and difficulties facing us today.  This threshold if used properly with wisdom may become a window to opportunities. 


 “The Sabian symbol for the 1st degree of Gemini is taken from “The Sabian Symbols in Astrology by Marc Edmund Jones”, and what follows are my comments.


Gemini 1  A glass-bottomed boat in still water  This is a symbol of man’s alertness to every ramification of experience open to him, and of the necessity that he take definite action his own account if he is to capitalize on any particular opportunity.  The emphasis is on an objective inactivity of value to the individual as it becomes a poise through which he is able to regrasp his destiny at each point of advantage, and as it gives him a readiness of touch with the transient stream of everyday affairs.  The keyword is curiosity.  When positive, the degree is high competence in the estimation of life’s potentialities, and when negative, a lack of effective participation in reality because of continual indecisiveness.


This symbol speaks to us of a heightened awareness, that can be attained by our curiosity and sincerity through new ideas in whatever forms or disguises, which are presented to us for our consideration and use.  The need to develop our perceptions, emotions, and detachments with objectiveness to any new concepts is essential in seeing and accomplishing new vistas.   Our ability to recognize the potentials of any conceptual idea is greatly enhanced by our ability to adapt and improvise in any given situation and to the degree of confidence and trust we have in our higher intuitions, inspirations, and imaginations.  We need to remind ourselves of the energy and potential that is directed towards us with this Solar Eclipse in Gemini echoing the significance of our actions and the prospects that may be achievable in our visionary imagery in its connection with the mystical and magical world, bringing into reality new concepts and possibilities in fulfilling our dreams.

“To Comprehend That Which is Hidden, Nudges the Pisces New Moon on Feb 21 2012?

As our sojourn through the cold winter months is taking an upward turn towards the thought that spring is near, and that new hopes and wishes are on the horizon and are about to bloom soon.  Our feelings and plans for the year are gaining a momentum all its own.  Within this sense of excitement and energy the 2 Pisces 42 New Moon at 2:35 pm PST on February 21st 2012 makes its appearance nudging us to grasp and to comprehend our hidden beliefs, our hidden secrets and our hidden mysteries that lie dormant in our consciousness and our sub consciousness for our benefit and use, no matter how the year turns out for each of us.  WithNeptune, Mercury, Chiron and two other asteroids conjoining the Moon and Sun in Pisces, it is like the joker in a field of playing cards that may be a help or a disadvantage, but not without pain. 

As the old axiom “where there is no pain, there is no gain” will be making its presence known and felt during the coming year.  Uncovering and revealing these thoughts and moments which are hidden in the back of our memories, gives us the time and opportunity to resolve issues that may be a hindrance or a benefit for our further growth.  It is in experiencing the pain of reliving the moments we have conveniently laid aside that understanding and comprehending the circumstances, that healing comes about.  With healing comes acceptance and forgiveness and in time we will extend our gratitude for experiencing the trials and tribulations, in so doing, we begin to understand their part in our development.  This new awareness and confidence is the extra ingredient we need to help, to create and to bring into fruition our desires and hopes in the coming year.    

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

Pisces 3  A petrified forest  This is a symbol of the absolute certainty which any individual may develop in the terms of his conscious knowledge, and of the power in human character which becomes the hallmark of his intellectual orientation.  The static symbolism is a warning against any reliance on stabilities to which no immediate or personal contribution is made, and which in consequence may become obstacles to progress.  Here rather is dramatization of an eternal stoutheartedness, and of its very practical dividends in spiritual continuance.  The keyword is survival.  When positive, the degree is effective continuity and breadth of resource in human effort, and when negative, complete immobilization in superficial reality.

This symbol speaks to us about convictions, intellectual certainties, character, concepts and ideas that survive long after they have been conceived.  It is the image of endurance, but at the same time it alludes to inflexibility, stubbornness, resistance to change and the inability to adapt or improvise at any moment in time.  One begins to realize and suspect that the picture we have of our self may be a stumbling block instead of a stepping stone to accomplish our dreams.  This symbol speaks to our inner soul, by epitomizing and demanding us to search within our deepest thoughts, that the convictions we held so dearly and live by as truth for so long, still resonates and supports us in accomplishing our wishes and dreams.  If we hope to live this year as fully as possible, we need to listen and to take advantage of the energy and power of this New Moon in Pisces.  By trying to grasp and to comprehend the hidden beliefs, secrets and mysteries of our consciousness within us and to change it, if need be.  Then and then only, will we be able to transform our stumbling block into a stepping stone in which to generate and live a life joyfully and with satisfaction.

“13 Pisces 55 New Moon On March 4th 2011 Reveals The Truth of Pandora’s Box”

As we approach the 13 Pisces 55 New Moon which will be happening at 12:47 p.m. PST on March 4th 2011, not only are the Sun and the Moon in Pisces, but also Chiron, Mars, Mercury, and Uranus, greatly magnifying the collective energy of the twelfth sign and house.  Revealing to us that the Pandora’s Box has been opened, hence we need to face the consequences of our actions.  The Myth points out that as the lid was open, evil and chaos poured out into our world, but Hope, faith, and trust also escaped.  This unexpected gift from the Universe gives mankind the hope and the necessary talents and abilities to believe that greater things and achievements are possible.  Pandora’s Box has great risk and tribulations with the possibility of enormous gain when forethought and foresight is applied to any situation confronting us.  The Box brings with it revelations, revolutions and the upheavals of economical and political reforms.  This is evident by what is happening around the globe, where thoughts and ideas are spreading like wild fires, out of control, and affecting everything in its’ path.

“The Sabian symbol for the 14th degree of Pisces is taken from “The Sabian Symbols in Astrology by Marc Edmund Jones”, and what follows are my comments.

Pisces 14  A Lady in fox fur  This is a symbol of the ever-effective dynamic with which everyday custom endows mankind, dramatized here by an individual’s desire to be in style and to express opinions of momentary weight.  Men are strengthened through whatever they are able to possess or do and think in common, but this is their bondage unless they are able also to contribute a creative content to their own experience.  The self gains integrity as it learns never to surrender its initiative, and so it adds its touch to reality.  The keyword is tastefulness.  When positive, the degree is high accomplishment through a consistent representation of the self’s assets in the best possible light, and when negative, amoral opportunism.

This is so insightful to what is happening in our global world today that change is in the air because of economical, financial and political upheavals, that what was the norm is no longer what works, or what is needed.  This symbol is revealing to us that if we wish to be in sync with our peers around the world, we need to contribute creatively to the whole and not just follow blindly the direction of the masses.  As the world has grown smaller, the need to work as a unit of one and to contribute creatively to the whole is vitally important for our survival and success as a creation of the Universe.  We must not create and cause change for the sake of change, but that the transformation we bring into reality is for the good of all.  We need to have a solution to that which we feel is not working and to bring it to fruition.  Once we have that solution we may be proud of it and other achievements will follow.  Like the apple in the Garden of Eden, which is the fruit of knowledge that can be used for good or evil, the magic and power of Pandora’s Box holds the contents to destroy or create.  The truth, power and the magic of the box is in the hand of he or she who learns to use the contents correctly with the good of all in mind.  The key is learning to use the energy properly and to our advantage.

“13 Sag 28 New Moon on Dec 5th 2010 Reminds Us to Attempt the Impossible Dream”

The more I meditate on the moon phases and write about them, the more I realize, how powerful these subtle energies are in directing our thoughts and directions, then we think, even if they do not aspect our natal charts.  These meditations bring a magic all their own and a ritual as powerful as any magical talisman will bring to its wearer and creator.  As we meditate on the New Moon at 9:36 a.m. PST at 13 Sagittarius 28 on December 5th 2010, it reminds us to reach for and to attempt the impossible dream.  As we are apparently finishing up with some of the difficult aspects of the past year for the time being, some still remain behind, reminding us that the trials and tribulations are not over and done with, just yet.  If we are to move on to greener pastures we need to make some dramatic changes in our thinking, as indicated by Mars in Sagittarius in sextile to Neptune and Chiron and square to Jupiter and Uranus.  It is reminding us that we have been through a lot so far, but not enough to make it any easier to adapt to new ways of thinking and doing things.  With Mercury conjunct Pluto the aspects are forcing us to stretch and be more flexible then we have ever been before.  If we thought we had to think out of the box before, the patterns in the night sky is telling us we must reach further out of the box and be open to new and different possibilities, we never dreamt of working with before.  This is not the time to continue as we have, because if we do continue as we have been, it will only be the same as we always had.  To break old habits is as difficult as changing to new ones which carries with it, trials and errors.

“The Sabian symbol for the 14th degree of Sagittarius is taken from “The Sabian Symbols in Astrology by Marc Edmund Jones”, and what follows are my comments.

Sagittarius 14  The pyramids and the Sphinx  This is a symbol of the ultimate criterion of reality provided by the common or physical world of normal experience, here at the extreme of man’s enduring works in material substance.  There are myriads of testimonials to human genius across the surface of the globe. And these provide the fabric for a friendship of creative capacity and give even the least of individuals an assurance and a self-sustainment as he continues to make his new or better mark on the face of events.  The keyword is certification.  When positive, the degree is effective practicality through a gift for bringing real imagination to everyday living, and when negative, ridiculous efforts to fill the shoes of giants.

It is through reaching beyond what we think we are capable of, that we achieve something so incredible, that it proves to our conscious and subconscious, that the best can be accomplished.  By not settling for the mediocre, we come to perfect that which was once only in our imagination, into actuality.  With purpose and the ability to organize our thinking, we can accomplish and materialize with perfection into reality, our dreams, wishes and visions.  It is through thinking out of the box that the ancients built the pyramids and the Sphinx in Egypt and the Temples to glorify the Universe by the Aztecs, Mayans and Incas and the other great wonders of the world.  To us they are great achievements, but to the ancients they were reaching for the impossible dream to fulfill their vision and purpose in this world.  If the ancients did not allow their fears or doubts to stop them from achieving their goals, how do we have any excuse, not to attempt to reach for our dreams?  This is where the energies of Saturn, Jupiter, Pluto, Neptune and Chiron will lend their support and give us the courage to have the conviction that we will achieve the impossible dream, but first we must reach for it.
