“Convey and Sustain Our Beliefs Repeats the 21 Cap 45 New Moon on Jan 11 2013”


Starting from scratch or restarting over, one needs to begin with a clean slate, and this is demonstrated and exemplified as it is akin to the start of a calendar year or a New Moon that marks the beginning of a new cycle of possibilities, opportunities, potentials, discoveries and advantages that is within one’s reach.  Throwing out the clutter, the thoughts and the confusions that accumulate through time and assorting those that are kept, according to one’s present priorities.  These feelings and concepts are still within our consciousness and are backed by our New Year resolutions just recently made.  In this atmosphere the first New Moon  in the calendar year makes it’s appearance at 21 Capricorn 45 on January 11th 2013 at 11:44 am PST repeating and embellishing the thought that we need to convey and sustain our beliefs, as we begin a New Year and new epoch of growth, if we hope to maintain balance in our world.

 A stellium is a conjunction of planets and with this period of time in the night sky includes the Sun, Moon, Mercury, Pluto, Venus and Juno in Capricorn.  It is concentrating its energy and power, indicating a period of renewal and reenergized effort in getting things completed and finished.  With this force and power directed by the Universe, we as individuals need to work with these energies to improve and to reach our own dreams and desires.  These planets are asking us to help transform, transcend and to make a commitment to our beliefs, our relationships and to what we consider that has influence and meaning in our lives.  How we and others around us, see our energies, our time, our talents, our assets, our resources and how we work with these qualities will determine our results, our success, our happiness, our satisfactions and what we consider to be important and what we will achieve during this period of time.

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

Capricorn 22  A general accepting defeat gracefully  This is a symbol of the immediate opportunities by which the human will develops the real power, and of its underlying and uncompromising loyalty to the long-range ends in view.  A realistic practicality is made effective through a self-disciplined grace of spirit, so that men are won over very often by the enemy they have defeated.  The individual exalts his destiny as he finds its roots established in values accepted by his fellows as well as himself.  The keyword is expediency.  When positive, the degree is a genius for learning from experience and transforming setback into accomplishment, and when negative, irresponsible acceptance of the worst and insensibility to self-inadequacy.

This symbol is so timely, as it is implying and at the same time insisting that we see and consider the whole picture and situation we are in, and by deciding on a strategy before any decision or action can be made.  It is asking us to face the facts of the circumstances, and if it is inevitable that we need to admit to defeat or to retreat, one needs to lay a side one’s pride and strategically plan and devise other avenues and solutions.  It illustrates and demonstrates the principle that to lose a situation or several in a row does not mean that we do not successfully accomplish what we set out do in the first place.  In its most positive aspect, it is turning every loss to an advantage and every defeat to a victory.  To remember that every set back is temporary and is something we learn from and learn to overcome or work with.  The key is our strategy and our ability to adapt and improvise when needed.  This Capricorn New Moon is repeating, reminding and embellishing that how we convey and sustain our beliefs is the foundation of our strategy in life and how we put it to use in achieving our goals and wishes.

“Reviewing Our Accomplishments is the Keywords for the Taurus New Moon on April 21”

As the clamor of the colors of spring begins to unfold, so too with the drama connected with the coming presidential elections, the slow recovery of the global economy, and the subtle whispers of the predictions of doom and gloom of 2012 begins to weave and to reveal stories, stranger than fiction could ever tell.  Under the shadows of this underlying dramatization the 01 Taurus 35 New Moon appears on the horizon on April 21st 2012 at 12:20 am PDT emphasizing the need to review our accomplishments if we are to make the right decisions for the coming year.  With Ceres and Vesta flanking the New Moon and Juno trine Mercury conjunct Uranus, these asteroids are aiding and supporting us to stand firm, to nourish, to encourage and to commit unselfishly to work for the good and the benefit of everyone and everything created by the Universe. 

Realizing that everyone and everything is connected, and that we need to work together for the good of all, is the message.  Understanding and comprehending that our worth should not be measured by our material or financial abundance that have been stored up, but by the joy, by the satisfaction, and by the peace of mind we have accumulated.  Have we developed the qualities and assets of seeing, of experiencing, and of living and of being in the moment?  These aspects in the night sky are telling us that our greatest possession is not what can be seen or touched, or accumulated, but that which is unseen, for example our attitude, emotions, and our thirst for knowledge, et cetera that can make a big difference in our lives, and is a possession greater then any amount of gold we can attain.

“The Sabian symbol for the 2nd degree of Taurus is taken from “The Sabian Symbols in Astrology by Marc Edmund Jones”, and what follows are my comments.

Taurus 2  An electrical storm  This is a symbol of man’s real power for making an effective impact on events, dramatized at each moment of issue and crisis by the completeness of his inward self-mobilization.  There is here a catharsis of nature, mirroring the capacity of every individual for discharging the whole complex of strain in his affairs and so clearing the way for a more genuine progress ahead.  Implicit in the symbolism is a terror in the loss of aplomb whenever human personality rises to a moment of union with the universal forces.  The keyword is transformation.  When positive, the degree is a genius for dramatizing both the value at hand and the potentials ahead, and when negative, unreasoning timidity in all self-expression.

This symbol speaks to us of the impact and the power of the energy that is stored up and released and to the awe and fear that can come about where the potential of destruction is not anticipated.  It speaks to us of the breaking point of the stockpile of energy and stress that is inadvertently released or discharged among unsuspecting persons or situations.  As above, so below, explains the power and energy that we too can amass to be use constructively or in a destructive way.  Transformation comes when we unite with wisdom and judgment to come to the realization that it is not what one has, but what one does with what one has, to define who we really are.  This sabian symbol is reinforcing the emphasis of this Taurus New Moon that we need to review our accomplishments to see if it is what we have stored up, that is important, or is it the way we use what we have that is our treasure and success in this life?

“The Answer Lies Within Ourselves Whispers the 18 Virgo 13 Full Moon on March 8th 2012”

The winter doldrums are beginning to fade as the first signs of spring are in the air, with expectations and hopes that new answers and new visions will be forthcoming to help solve new and reoccurring situations.  As we continue to ask, seek, and search for solutions for problems that seem to have staying power with subtle annoyances making their presence felt.  The 18 Virgo 13 Full Moon on March 8th 2012 at 1:41 am PST is whispering to us that the answer lies within ourselves.  We have handed over the handling of the financial downturn to others in high places because we thought they had the qualifications, the requirements, the knowledge, the wisdom, and the sense of duty and responsibility to guide us in the right direction from the state of affairs they have created.  Because of this action we have given up our right, our privilege and our initiative to come to our own conclusions and have accepted the responsibility of the decisions of others in the creation of our future. 

We have seen this play out in the real world around us, and the results have not been pretty or what we have hoped for.  This moon phase is signaling to us that we need to depend on our own ingenuity, intuition and insights to develop or solve our personal tribulations and to be responsible, and not to follow or be led by the conditions or the prevailing thoughts and conclusions that surround us.  Whether the moments are problems or opportunities, are we delving into and asking the right questions, in order to arrive at the right answers and solutions?  With the square to Juno and the conjunction to Pallas, the aspects are confronting us to see the truth of the issues, to face up to it and to work with our spiritual beliefs and conviction to bring our dreams and hopes into reality.  This full moon is demanding us to make and take responsibility for our lives, whether personally or as a global community, if we are to see a better tomorrow.   

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

Virgo 19  A swimming race  This is a symbol of the utter impartiality of existence in any larger dimension, and of the stimulus of direct competition whenever an individual seeks to perfect or enjoy some one of the special skills comprising his individuality.  He discovers that it is necessary to control every separate factor of his being, or else be ruled by the divergencies which make them up apart from their function within himself.  Life superficially remains in unstable balance, and survival is in the terms of that effectiveness or excellency which is best able to prove itself.  The keyword is elimination.  When positive, the degree is man’s capacity for any extreme of self-pointedness he may find valuable in a given case, and when negative, inadequate self-dramatization.

Pisces 19  A master instructing his pupil  This is a symbol of the unlimited potentiality of existence in any larger dimension, and of the demand of human intelligence for the self-refinement and self-orientation by which a greater understanding is possible.  Life entreats the individual to employ its privileges and enjoy its bounty, and gives every encouragement to that initiative of spirit by which he may be led to do so.  He finds that personality comes into its own as it is able to direct its own destiny.  The keyword is elucidation.  When positive, the degree is high executive ability through patient investigation and genuine psychological insight, and when negative, a desire to live by rule and a conceit of empty knowledge.

Implicit in this symbol is the concept of self discipline with the need to give up something in order to gain proficiency and perfection in our assets and talents we need to achieve in accomplishing our desires and dreams.  There are no winners or losers, as the competition helps each one of us to hone our skills to eliminate and to process those abilities that will work for us, and to recognize the liabilities that will hinder.  It is also telling us to take responsibility, to take control, to make the effort, and to learn to perfect the skills we need to meet the obstacles that life places in front of us.  That we can not rely on others to face the challenges, without us doing the homework too, and to understand what lies ahead.  This image subtly implies that time may be of the essence, and we need to acquire the knowledge, information and skill sooner than we thought or realize.  As we encounter life in 2012, we need to remind ourselves that this 18 Virgo 13 Full Moon is whispering to us that the answer lies within ourselves.

“Total Lunar Eclipse at 29 Gemini 20 on Dec 21st 2010, a Major Crossroad Crisis?”

The total Lunar Eclipse in 29 Gemini 20 at 12:14 a.m. PST happening December 21st 2010 is the third of the five Full Moons in a row that form at the last degree of a sign.  Besides being predisposed to the sign it is about to leave, it is starting to be influenced by the sign it is moving towards.  As this Full Moon is also a total Lunar Eclipse, the need to work with these energies, is of the upmost importance, as it amplifies our opportunities for transformation, rebirth and regeneration.  With the aspects of the planets and their relationship with the asteroids Pallas, Juno and Vesta, the zodiac is pointing to a major crossroad that we must tread upon lightly with wisdom and discernment, if we are to avoid a major crisis.  As this is the last eclipse for the year, the aspects of the past year have been nudging us to make some changes.  Indicating there is a turning point on the horizon in which we must take advantage of now and not miss the occasion presented.  This maybe the last time the Universe allows us the chance to make the changes in our lives, without interference from outside forces and situations.  Pallas the Warrior Queen is telling us we can no longer blindly follow others, but that we need to arouse the wisdom within and to defend what we consider important in our lives.  The survival instinct needed comes from using wisdom mixed with the right emotions to make things happen.  With the energies of Juno and Vesta, understanding the need to construct and sustain the right relationships and partnerships, will create and maintain the environment we wish to generate around us.

“The Sabian symbol for the Moon in 30 degrees of Gemini and for the Sun in 30 degrees of Sagittarius is taken from “The Sabian Symbols in Astrology by Marc Edmund Jones”, and what follows are my comments.

Gemini 30  Bathing beauties  This is a symbol of human excellence on the side of purely natural endowment, and of the soul as wholly inadequate except as it is able to meet some needs of everyday experience with the elements inherent in its make-up and so free from any or all responsibility to anything other then itself.  Here individuality gains a needed assurance through the phases of its being which prove immune from change or loss.  A person becomes himself as he is able thus to stand radiant and reliant among the total of his fellows.  The keyword is charm.  When positive, the degree is a special capacity for bringing the familiar desires and interests to an enduring representation of worthiness, and when negative, regression to childish vanities.

Sagittarius 30  The Pope  This is a symbol of human excellence on the side of the special values exalted in the various social and political hierarchies of modern civilization, and of man’s ambition as entirely inadequate except as he is able to meet some exceptional of everyday experience and so proceed to dramatize whatever abilities he may have developed in climbing to the position in which he finds himself.  A person is strengthened within himself by the appreciation he succeeds in winning from his fellows.  The keyword is sanctity.  When positive, the degree is and effective and spectacular sacrifice of self in some enduring service to the race at large, and when negative, inordinate love of self-display and surrender to a lust for power.

Within each one of us is instilled the innate talents, assets, and wisdom that will create the world we want from the trials, tribulations and chaos that is engulfing our society.  Before we can make use of these gifts, we need to give them the respect and sanctity they deserve, deleting any negative thoughts and knowing with certainty when called upon that they will come to our aid without hesitation and give their all.  Our responsibility is to realize that we are at the crossroads, and that we need to use all the gifts the Universe has given to us, to make the right choices.  To admit there is a major decision that needs to be made is the first step in deciding the right direction as we approach the crossroad of life to reach the destination we hope for.
