“Grab and Hold on to the Winds of Change Says 6 Libra 52 Full Moon on March 27th 2013”

Libra_2
With the spring equinox behind us signaling the start of a new astrological year, a sense of hope and anticipation is in the air as we await the colors and the warmth of the season. The winds of March are reflecting the energy and potential of the aspects in the night sky signifying a whirl wind ride of action. In this atmosphere, arrives the 6 Libra 52 Full Moon at 3:28 am PDT on March 27th 2013 telling us to grab on and to hold tight to the winds of change and transformation that is coming our way. As the energy and the excitement of a faster moving planet come in contact with a slower moving one, it helps to magnify the intensities of its potentials. This makes it vital not to miss the opportunities when they present themselves at this time, and when they do, hang on to it for dear life.

With a group of planets and asteroids in, a stellium in Aries that indicate a concentrated and heightened level of focus in the beginning of a cycle. The need for the initiation of action and exploration to step into the unknown with hope and confidence, as one who has been there before, is crucial. The stellium is in opposition to the moon, creating a need to push and to pull, to make things happen and yet at the same time is the support that is needed when the going gets tough. The aspects are not just asking for action and change, but are subtly pointing to the need of transformation in the way we see things and the way we hope to accomplish anything. It is not telling us to throw everything out, but to rearrange it in a way that it will be more meaningful. To put it bluntly, the stars are telling us to get rid of the clutter and work with what is important.

“The Sabian symbol for the Moon in 7th degrees of Libra and for the Sun in 7th degrees of Aires is taken from “The Sabian Symbols in Astrology by Marc Edmund Jones”, and what follows are my comments.

Libra 7 A woman feeding chickens and protecting them from the hawks This is a symbol of the creative division of labor between the functions of man and nature, and of the dual constitution of the soul in its responsibilities of conservation on the one hand and of developments on the other. There is here every capacity for a control of events through a nurturing of the things which are desirable and a rejection of those which have no immediate value. The keyword is shrewdness. When positive, the degree is a high competence in administering the duties of normal experience and a very special skill in protecting the self’s real interests, and when negative, a complete personal ineptitude in the face of life’s everyday and recurrent complexities.

Aries 7 A man successfully expressing himself in two realms at once This is a symbol of a creative division of labor within the self, such as distinguishes human kind from the lower orders of life and enables any individual to participate in the experience of many interpenetrating realms of reality. There is capacity here for a complete control of events by shifting from one to another focus of emphasis whenever it proves convenient or expedient. The keyword is proficiency. When positive, the degree is unlimited versatility and a special gift for divorcing the things of issue from whatever lacks immediate pertinence, and when negative, a tendency to defeat all self-competence in an unintelligent scattering of interest.

This symbol is speaking to us to keep things in focus and in perspective in order to maintain the proper balance between opposing forces, thoughts and ideas. To see each thing in its light in order to protect and nourish the weak and at the same time preserve the position of the strong. The key here is the balancing act in using one’s good judgment, one’s vigilance, one’s alertness and one’s awareness to achieve what one is aiming for. It is also telling us of our versatility in functioning competently in more then one area of expertise. As this Full Moon approaches we need to remind ourselves of our assets and liabilities and to begin to work with them to be ready for the whirl wind of change and transformation. By being prepare and ready to take advantage of the opportunities, the changes, the transformations, we will be able to grab on and to allow them to become realities in our lives.

“What Do We Consider Our Treasures Asks 7 Virgo 24 Full Moon on Feb 25 2013”

251822_378298945567557_1425116252_n

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.

“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.

“Addressing the Real Issues is the First Step says the 7 Cancer 7 full Moon on Dec 28th 2012”

 

Within a week of the Winter Solstice, as the cold continues its grip with the night at their longest and darkest, the 7 Cancer 7 Full Cold Moon makes its appearance on December 28th 2012 at 2:23 am PST reemphasizing that addressing the real issues is the first step to ensure success in any venture.  The Long Night Moon is another appropriate term given to this moon because it is above the horizon a very long time during the midwinter night.  Some difficult aspects in the night sky are subtly influencing us to make some major changes, especially in how we see and view ourselves and what we stand for.  This perception of how we see ourselves is essential if we are to make any progress in our growth, happiness and satisfaction in our lives.  Once we begin to understand where we really are coming from and who we really are, only then can we begin to sift through any situation to uncover the actual issues that have brought about the conditions we are facing.  Without discovering the real issues, we would be going around in a circle hoping to get to the cause in order to find a solution to the matter, and never finding the answer.

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

Cancer 8  Rabbits dressed in clothes and on parade  This is a symbol of the upward reach of consciousness towards spirit, or of the necessity in all worth-while experience that events in some fashion make their continual and stimulating contribution to whatever values the self may be building into its own nature.  The habiliments of higher implications are always available for a lower life to wear experimentally, thus sharing in what as yet it has not been able to assimilate to itself.  The real is established as it is dramatized.  The keyword is appropriation.  When positive, the degree is unlimited assurance in any projection of self into a superior dimension of reality, and when negative, an ingenuous substitution of affirmation for accomplishment.

Capricorn 8  Birds in the house singing happily  This is a symbol of the descent of spirit or intelligence into every last ramification of everyday reality, and of man’s self-fulfillment as he is successful in shaping circumstances or precipitating events so that they become the ultimate and outward revelation of that higher vision by which he continues to be himself at core.  Here is the actual and impregnable independence of the individual, evident as at length he is able to make his world his own and call on all to share it with him.  The keyword is establishment.  When positive, the degree is an insatiable urge to put everything to use and to employ every least talent of self, and when negative, idle narcissism.

This symbol speaks to us of the clarification and formulation of the role-playing and mental rehearsals we have with ourselves that we use in order to discover what we think is our real self and our inner needs.  It represents our aspiration, our ambition, our imagination, our positive thinking and our ability to use our creative energies and to bring it into reality.  At the same time when everything seems to fall into place or out of place, it speaks to us of our ability to create the reality associated with it, as in happiness and as in delight or as in misery and as in despair according to the circumstances at hand.  The aspects in the night sky in connection with the sabian symbols emphasize the power of the mind and our thoughts.  By coming to terms of whom we are and who we wish to be, then only can we see the power of our thoughts and ideas.  Only then can we truly discover the truth to what confronts us.  It is important for us to address this at this point in time, as we are at the end of one cycle of time and are about to start another.  As we face up to this Full Moon, may we have the courage to step up to the plate and address the real issues instead of side stepping the problem.

“A Time of Reckoning is at Hand Depicts the 6 Taurus 48 full Moon on Oct 29th 2012”

The darkness and coldness of the approaching winter seems to be only a few days away as the visions and memories of the last harvest are almost completely gone.  During this period the early settlers with the limitation the weather had on their ability to keep enough provision to last through the wintry weather needed to hunt and to process their food to last them until the spring begins to unfold.  As serious preparation to provide for the coming months was by hunting game, the 6 Taurus 48 Hunter’s Full Moon makes its appearance at 12:50 pm PDT on October 29th 2012 in opposition to the Sun conjunct Saturn in Scorpio.  Emphasizing and depicting a reckoning of some sort is at hand.  Reckoning as defined by the American Heritage Dictionary as follow “A settlement of accounts: a day of reckoning”.  Saturn in Scorpio is associated with responsibility, restitution, reconciliation and to take an assessment of any situation.  This moon phase is spotlighting and forcing us to confront and to account for our fears, to account for our habits, to account for our limitations and is asking us to address it or let it go.

“The Sabian symbol for the Moon in 7th degrees of Taurus and for the Sun in 7th degrees of Scorpio is taken from “The Sabian Symbols in Astrology by Marc Edmund Jones”, and what follows are my comments.

Taurus 7  A woman of Samaria  This is a symbol of the unimpeachable divinity which characterizes man’s nature at root, represented here by his instinct for higher things as he yet plumbs all experience to the depths and welcomes life almost indiscriminately into the uttermost inner reaches of his being.  Implicit in the reversed symbolism of this famous amoral figure of Biblical times is an indomitability of striving for real and gratifying self-fulfillments.  The keyword is awakening.  When positive, the degree is absolute and wholly impersonal self-giving in the hope of an honest self-realization, and when negative, a debasing and carefree dissoluteness accepted in compensation for the unattained and more enduring satisfactions.

Scorpio 7  Deep-sea divers  this is a symbol of the absolute integrity of man’s nature at root, dramatized here by his insatiable determination to plumb all experience to the depths and to uncover the illimitable reaches of potentiality in his world of everyday relationships.  Implicit in the symbolism is a challenge to self-refinement through a subjection of the skills of self to every possible test or opportunity for a further perfection.  Self-fulfillment is through an ever-increasing interest in day-by-day problems.  The keyword is involvement.  When positive, the degree is a persistent penetration to the very vital core of human motive and make-up, and when negative, fundamentally unsocial instincts and a resort to wholly absurd escapism.

This symbol speaks to us of the sacredness of man ever thirsting for spiritual nourishment and the enlightenment of seeking fellowship with kindred spirits.  It speaks to us of reaching out and demonstrating and living our beliefs and being an example to others in what we stand for.  The accent is on being of service and putting aside our fears, our limitations, and our prejudices and in giving our assistance and support to others in need, whether they share the same convictions or not.  It is also asking us to take an account of our spiritual beliefs and our concepts of what is truth, and if it is hindering us from addresing our values?  Is our ability to assist and to listen to others dependent on whether they share the same views as us?  At the same time the symbol speaks to us of the need to investigate, to explore and to unravel any mystery to its core value for our self improvement and growth.  Curiosity and persistence gives the momentum to scrutinize things out before acting upon it.  As the Taurus Full Moon makes its presence felt, let us remind ourselves that the time of reckoning is coming from within.  That we are our own judge and jury, and the outcome is in our hands.

“The Abyss of No Return but Onward Directs the 7 Aries 22 Full Moon on Sept 29 2012”

This full moon is not the final forerunner of difficult aspects in the night sky for the year, announcing that an evolution or more likely a revolution of sorts is in the atmosphere and is about to explode and manifest itself into reality.  We can no longer deny its existence as it unfolds before our very eyes and presence.  With the aspects of action and movement in place in the zodiac, a sense that we can no longer turn back, but need to go forward is imminent.  The pangs and pains of change is evident as the 7 Aries 22 Full Moon on September 29th 2012 at 8:20 pm PDT is making its energies felt, as it is reminding us that we are moving into the abyss of no return, but onward to the future.  We need to move forward with faith and trust that through the darkness, we will finally reach the light.  The Universe in all its wisdom is showing us that we need not fear the difficulties and tribulations we are about to experience.  But to see it as stepping stones, to new possibilities and the potentials for success we have not thought about or had the foresight or the vision to recognize. 

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

Aries 8  A large hat with streamers flying, facing east  This is a symbol of native creativity, or the fundamentally phallic stirrings of man as these keep him forever responsive for better or worse to the general potentialities of an everyday being, and as they also enable him to realize and utilize the ever-emerging novelties and variations of human relationships.  Implicit here is an unconditioned and complete co-operation with every immediate trend of events, whether consciously or otherwise.  The keyword is excitation.  When positive, the degree is continual self-orientation to the nascent potentialities of all life and experience, and when negative, a tendency to idle posing or an empty pretense of good will and interest.

Libra 8  A blazing fireplace in a deserted home  This is a symbol of native reality, or of the basic law of the cosmos whereby all things tend to continue steadily in their accustomed function.  Implicit here is the burning desire or capacity for passion which establishes man’s loyalty to each object of his self-projection and instruments his more consistent self-orientation through each phase of personal responsibility to the world in which he finds himself.  The keyword is guardianship.  When positive, the degree is an exceptional gift for enlisting both men and the natural forces of life in the service of self and its dominating vision, and when negative, a witless dismissal of all affairs to their own devices.

This symbol speaks to us of anyone proudly presenting them self with dignity and presence as one with a purpose allowing the winds of change and clarity to define their direction and to embrace their stature.  Excitement and anticipation is always associated with change, as it is an adventure into the unknown, as we wait patiently, watching and expecting the unexpected results.  The emphasis here is faith, trust, hope, loyalty, invisible sustainment and the conviction that our goals are achievable through our passion and determination of will.  Our greatest assets at the moment is the refusal to give up hope when all seems hopeless and our ability to change course or improvise, if need be.  It is warning us from hanging on to what worked in the past and to release the negative thoughts which is holding us back from our own progress.  This Full Moon is reminding us that we are moving into the abyss of no return, but onward to new adventures and potentials that are beyond our wildest dreams.

“The New Frontier is Within Whispers the 08 Pisces 33 Full Moon on August 31st 2012”

As the world seems to spin ever so quickly further into the world of tomorrow, with the gadgets and technology leaving the world of science fiction and becoming reality, it seems there is no boundary that has not been touched or explored.  Yet, one area in our life seems to have taken a back seat and stood still, and with some, has reverted to a slower time period.  It is the moments which were meant to be experienced and lived for what it was, and are now lost forever in time as memories that could have been.  In the mist of the hottest summer I have ever experienced, the Full Blue Moon (blue indicating the second full moon in the same month) in 08 Pisces 33, is happening on August 31st 2012 at 6:58 am PDT whispering that the new frontier we need to revisit is within. 

The aspects in the night sky are trying to tell us that what we are experiencing as a global community or individually may be created by who we think we are, rather then by our true essence.  Have we allowed our feelings, emotions, thoughts and beliefs to be overcome by the awe of the spectacular and the excitements of our modern achievements, and have lost our connections with our spiritual source and with one another?  What is really important and essential for the health and success of the greatest creation of the Universe, life, being jeopardize by what we think matters and not what really matters?  In this modern world with everything laid in front of us begging our attention, do we have the wisdom to choose the right thing that will benefit all of us, and make life worthwhile?  

“The Sabian symbol for the Moon in 9 degrees of Pisces and for the Sun in 9 degrees of Virgo is taken from “The Sabian Symbols in Astrology by Marc Edmund Jones”, and what follows are my comments.

Pisces 9  A jockey  This is a symbol of the eagerness for life an individual must show in any true revelation of himself, and of the concern he must have for the struggles and competitions of everyday experience.  It is only through thoroughly consistent performance of his skills and talents that man establishes himself among his fellows, and as this develops in excellence he is under increasing obligation to be successful in exhibiting them.  Implicit in the symbolism are very harsh penalties for any failure to drive the capabilities of self to the limit.  The keyword is practice.  When positive, the degree is a spectacular gift for rising to any occasion, and when negative, witless gambling of every resource and potentiality.

Virgo 9  A man making a futurist drawing  This is a symbol of the originality an individual must show in any true assertion of himself, and of the importance of the aesthetic or more spiritual areas of his experience.  It is only through an identifiable and personal uniqueness that man is able to establish himself among his fellows, and the risk he takes is that if this becomes too extreme it may repel rather than attract.  Implicit in the symbolism is a challenge to a distinctiveness which will release the creative capacities of others as well as self.  The keyword is experiment.  When positive, the degree is a gift for the illimitable expansion of the human mind and a consequent extension of its powers, and when negative, complete and continuous confusion of ideas.

This symbol speaks to us to live life fully to the best of our abilities, and to acknowledge that we would not be able to achieve this without our connection with the source of all life.  It is truly living and being in the moment with our inner higher self that we learn to improve and improvise any future experiences.  With Uranus square Pluto an emphasis on the regeneration and transformation is explored through originality and the uniqueness of the expression of our individualities and yet connected to the Divine source to create and to bring solutions, to any situations that confront us.  It is in living and being in the moment from within our higher self that we tend to express the best and begin to understand our purpose here.  This Full Moon in Pisces is whispering and reminding us that the new frontier we need to conquer, to understand and to work with is within our higher self, if we are to succeed in our wishes and dreams in navigating through life’s trials and tribulations.
