“Stir but not Shaken is the way I blend Planetary Sect with my Delineation of the Natal”

76825
Being brought up in modern astrology, I found my way to traditional astrology very late in my studies. I would not call myself traditional in anyway, but I would tag myself, modern with a twist of the traditional. Stir, but not shaken, is the saying associated with the popular cocktail which summarizes my kind of astrology, especially working with the planetary sect. I guess the real truth of the matter is that I am the kind of person that will adopt any technique that is going to make me a better predictive astrologer. The bottom line is it going to work and will I be able to merge it with my other techniques, where I will feel comfortable with it. I will adopt and use any system that works. To me the truth of the matter is that the modern astrology is a simplified form of traditional to meet the needs of the modern world.

Modern astrology has dropped and laid aside many of the rules and regulations they felt no longer was necessary in today’s lifestyle. My problem with taking out what is no longer viable, are they the basics that might be needed to accurately predict? Or at least give us some understanding where our foundation came from, in order to understand where we are heading towards. As a beginning artist learning the craft I was always was told one must first learn and master the basics of drawing and painting. After one has the technique under one’s belt, only then can one throw out and begin to create one’s own style. My problem, have we thrown out too much and have handicapped ourselves in being better astrologers? What I realize in my research and study of the old manuscripts and translations that it does no harm in studying it thoroughly, and then deciding the next step one needs to take.

The system of planetary sect has been rediscovered in recent years in which one would categorize the seven traditional planets into two different camps: daytime or diurnal, or nighttime or nocturnal sect. Diurnal or the day time planets, which include the Sun, Jupiter and Saturn, are more comfortable and powerful when the Sun appears above the horizon. The nocturnal planets or the night time planets are more comfortable and powerful when the Sun is below the horizon, which includes the Moon, Venus and Mars. Mercury is the versatile and adaptable planet and its sect is determined by whether it rises before or after the Sun. Rising before the Sun, it is considered diurnal a morning star and after the sun is considered nocturnal an evening star. The planet’s sect indicates it course of action and will determine the quality of the planet and the degree of benefic or malefic influence it will have. In effect, sect determines which of the two is in control of the chart and which plays more of an advisory or auxiliary role.

I personally feel this makes sense as I consider myself a day person who operates better in the early morning. I can empathize with the planets, as I don’t do well as a night owl. Understanding what I lack and have difficulties with, allows me to work with what I can do to achieve my goals. So by using this system we can determine how well and to what degree each planet is performing at, and what we need to supplement or work with in order to fulfill the promise of our natal chart. By knowing beforehand the possible problems and liabilities we may encounter, we are able to come up with better solutions. The value of this technique is that in the majority of charts one can quickly determine with a degree of accuracy which planets will be helping the individual and generally acting as positive and constructive influences and those planets that will be creating difficult or negative and destructive influences in one’s life.

“Jupiter Together With Saturn Helps Make Sense of the Senseless”

The weeks before the winter solstice the conversation at work seem to center around whether the Mayan prophecies would manifest, and if it did, what would really be the outcome? With the media frenzy finally coming to a halt as the days got closer to the appointed time, the smirks of ridicule were giving way to more thoughtful discussions on the matter. Some believe in the end of the world theory connected with space aliens transporting citizens to another planet and other weird, strange and unusual stories of what was about to happen. I expressed my own thoughts as an astrologer, that I felt this was an end of one age, and a beginning of another, similar to the age of Aquarius. Although I felt many believed this to be the possible answer, I had the feeling and suspected that some wanted and were hoping for something more spectacular and exciting.

As I was listening to what was being discussed, I realized from my observation of those around me that with the continuance of the global financial difficulty that it was creating a need for diversion from the worry of instability, to something more fantasy filled, even if it was ominous. It seems to me that those who accepted that the final days were at hand, thought this was a better answer, then hoping to find a solution to the situation that was eluding them. It appears to me, that knowing the final outcome, even if was negative and to our disadvantage, was more acceptable then facing an unknown future. Now that the day we have all waited for, has come and gone without any difference then any other day, it is easier to have retrospection and be more honest with oneself after the fact, especially about what was going on in our minds and emotions.

Thinking about this, I began to wonder what planets in our charts helps us get through difficult situations with a clear mind and with a feeling of optimism that would make sense of the senseless. In solving or coming to a conclusion in such matters, I have always found my self to be the best subject to study. I quickly took out my own chart to see what planets would have me see more clearly in situations that did not seem to have any logic to it. Not only is Mercury ruler of my chart, it also was the ruler of my ascendant and my midheaven, so obviously this planet would play a very import part in my life and all my dealings. Mercury may give me the ability to admit to myself what works for me, but it doesn’t give me the answer that would help me to come to any conclusions. I quickly realized it was the two planets I considered to be the odd couple in a relationship that can make the difference from hopelessness to optimism.

The major benefic Jupiter and the major malefic Saturn, whom are the two opposites that are not able to work with one another without some difficulties and yet cannot, do anything without the other was the key to the answer. A paradox among many, and yet it seems the world is full of them. For example: without darkness we would not appreciate the light, and so forth. Without the structure and discipline of Saturn we could never organize our beliefs, standards and actions into a workable system to live by. It is with this system in place that our decisions of how we will live and how well we live are expressed. Depending on the sign and the house, determines how well each planet will function in this incarnation. The strength and power of the planets will decide how we will experience the subtleties of the changes we will need to make as the new age unfolds. With Jupiter and Saturn working in unison, then only, will the planets make sense of the senseless.

“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.

“Saturn the Late Bloomer with its Many Surprises and Benefits”

In the earliest days of my studies in astrology, my introduction to Saturn was embedded with caution, dread and amazement of the power, the energy and the malefic influences the planet can play in one’s life.  The stories that were related to me, as if I was smart enough to have recorded them at the time, would have been truths that would be more unbelievable then any fiction.  It had given me the seeds for stories to be written, if only I was attentive to what was happening around me at the time.  My first astrology teacher not only had the ability to explain difficult concepts, but was a great story teller when giving examples of the different aspects, the different signs and the different planets.  This I found is the destructive, distractive and malefic nature of the planet, in that it tends to tease one with structure, steadfastness, stability, consistency, limitation, stamina, without the compassion and understanding of the circumstances one is experiencing.  In my research and studies with Saturn, I have discovered that the planet is considered the Prince of Time.  Saturn is sometimes the late bloomer with many surprises and benefits.

When we approach our own Saturn Return in our lives, which happens approximately around thirty and sixty years of age, the surrounding atmosphere is one of apprehension of what is about to change in our lives, if at all.  It is not the change we fear, but the reminder that time is marching on and that we are aging and moving on to a different aspect of time in our lives.  What we fear most in my opinion with the Saturn Return is not the difficulties and trials that are laid before us, but the reminder that time moves on, and there is no turning back time.  Fortunately for us, the Universe in its wisdom has instilled in Saturn a duality that is reflected by Jupiter.  In studying the glyphs of the two planets, one will instantly see they are in reverse indicating the connection and the nature of the energy and power of each in its duality, polarity and unison as one.  In understanding and analyzing the classification of words of benefic and malefic, it does not imply one is better off then the other.  We have seen that too much of a good thing can become disastrous and the discipline of controlling a negative trait can become constructive and positive in some instances. 

In my opinion Saturn has been given a bad rapt and we need to revisit and rethink how the planet works and distribute its energies and blessings in own world.  Without discipline and structure, nothing would get accomplished, but yet at the same time we rebel at the thought of limitation and the configuration of what life should be.  Our own vision and decisions can bring out the worst qualities of Saturn through inflexibility, cruelty, compulsiveness, rigidity, embitterment, and narrow-mindedness, etc…  Saturn rules the end of a situation or the last period of our life.  It is instrumental in delaying manifestations of our dreams and wishes into reality until the right moment in time.  Summarizing I feel that when one works with Saturn, a sense of caution and care with awe and amazement of how effortlessly it creates and teaches us what we need to know and to accomplish.  The effort needed, is with us to comprehend the moment and by living it with the zest that comes with it.  Saturn is not the planet to promise a successful completion of one’s dream and wishes, but is the one to give us the key to arrive at the end of the rainbow to receive our pot of gold with many surprises along the way.

“To Know and To Be Thyself Emphasizes the 21 Sag 45 New Moon on Dec 13 2012”

 

As the daylight hours continue to shorten and the winter winds become stronger, we will soon begin to realize that within the darkness lay the mysteries and the reasons of our fears and apprehensions.  And with every shadow lies the uncertainty we must deal with, as we journey through the still of the night.  The winter solstice approaches in connection with the Mayan prophesy announcing the beginning of a new age or epoch about to descend upon us is like the shadows in the dark, we must deal with.  Depending on how we approach these shadows and the attitudes we have at the moment, will determine the success we have in overcoming whatever fears that lies within us, and the accomplishments that will be made.  In this foreboding atmosphere the 21 Sagittarius 45 New Moon makes its appearance on December 13th 2012 at 12:42 am PST emphasizing that to know and to be thyself will be our saving grace in dealing with whatever the future is about to lay in our path for our growth.

 

With Saturn and Pluto creating a finger of God aspect towards Jupiter, which may trigger major life events that may turnout to be too complicated to handle without caution, understanding and sensitivity, indicating a great need for resourcefulness and creativity to overcome any situations or difficulties we may encounter.  It will take enormous initiative and fortitude to overcome the limitations created by the yod aspect, also known as the finger of God.  Although it is truly a blessing, the first encounter with this aspect allows us to see and experience the difficulties of the growing pains, and the lessons of the trials and the errors one always needs to experience in order to grow.  The lesson here lies in whether we learn from our experiences and move onward and forward, or whether we use the stumbling block as an excuse to continue as we have.  As the solstice indicates a major turning point to reconsider and to rethink where we have been, it is also suggesting that a new era is upon us and that we need to take more care and restraint on the decisions and the directions we are about to embark upon.  We need to move ahead with caution and alertness to the dangers that may abound. 

 

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

 

Sagittarius 22  A Chinese laundry  This is a symbol of complete self-refinement through the unsuspected or even generally unaccepted activities of the community, and of a consummation of the being through specialized interests which may tend to deny man his more superficial communion with his fellows.  A richness of living comes from a concentration on goals with remote reward, and from an association in spirit with souls of very high achievement.  Here is imaginative self sustainment through unremitting hard labor.  The keyword is seclusion.  When positive, the degree is an unusual gift for maintaining poise and self-perspective in every unfamiliar or alien situation, and when negative, unnecessary acceptance of self-inferiority.

 

This symbol speaks to us of self-refinement and the total environment of providing a service by physical or mental means which would improve the self assessment of the individual and by giving the individual the confidence to go into the world with integrity and honor to fulfill their purpose in this life.  The laundry may appear to be menial and unimportant in affecting the course of our lives, but with cleaned and pressed garments, the person goes forth into the world with confidence and assurance.  This enforces and confirms the message of the night sky, that in truly knowing who we really are and being able to express it, is like having clean clothes creating an atmosphere which enhances our ability to deal with any circumstances and come out of it with flying colors.  Who we are, is symbolic like the clean attire we put on, it reinforces our self-confidence, allowing the world to see us as we really are and wish to be.  To know thyself is one of the essential ingredients for success, to be oneself is the motivation factor that materializes. The Sagittarius New Moon is telling us to know and to be thyself is the impetus to make things happen as the world enters into a new epoch of growth.

“Sun in the Solar Return Tenth House is an Accomplishment and Success Well Earned!”

 

As the financial atmosphere still seems a bit shaky and apparently recovery seems further away than most people were hoping for, the need to secure our own future is eminent in all our thoughts.  Even those who should have no apparent reason to be worried about their situation are giving second thoughts to their circumstances and are cautious of what the future has in store.  All are affected by the lingering cloud of the unknown and the unrest that seems to prevail everywhere, and the ineffective decisions that have so far not been able to turn the financial situation around.  More and more people are beginning to see the light that they need to take control of their own destiny in hand, if they are to avoid some of the trials and tribulations that may be in store for all of us.  Some of us in anticipating what the future has in store are making decisions to change our course, before we are pushed into it.  This was in the message I had received from one who sees the handwriting on the wall, and felt she needed to do something before the wall crumbles in front of her.  Realizing she had no other choices she began using astrology to pick the appropriate time in making her decisions to decide when the changes should come about to bring the best results. 

 

For the coming year she saw that she had the Sun in the solar return tenth house and began to make her plans.  As with all major decisions, no matter how good one is at delineating a chart, doubt comes in and a second opinion is always needed to calm the fears when making a radical decision or change.  There have been many times I have sought a second opinion, as I have never felt I could be objective in delineating a chart for myself.  I am always hesitant in advising a major change, as I have always felt the individual needed to make that decision from the surrounding circumstances that may appear on the horizon.  I do not believe our life is predestined in such a way that we lose the freedom of choice.  I believe we can make it better or worst what lies in our path, by the choices we make along the way.  Seeing that the decision was already made, I felt better and more comfortable about giving my opinion on the chart. Seeing her chart was exciting for me, as this was the first time I have seen a chart in a pattern similar to my own.  Marc Edmond Jones categorizes natal charts into seven zodiacal patterns with certain traits and characteristics.  I felt I was among a kindred spirit, especially with both of ourNeptune’s in our natal first, given both of us an open door to all the traits and the characteristics this planet encompasses. 

 

I began to wonder if even with our differences, and in the end, the outcomes may turnout to be different, would we experience and anticipate each of the situations in similar ways?  With this thought along side the axiom of Morin, that to predict a major event, one needed at least another aspect to prove the indication was feasible.  With the Sun in the solar return tenth house, exact on the midheaven and with Uranus and Pluto near the angles, an important and active year is indicated.  Sun in the tenth indicates the right time for career decisions and changes and the possibilities of becoming self-employed.  The solar return Sun square the solar return Uranus which is in opposition to Pluto, indicating an end of one situation and transforming it to something very different, giving new life and new energy to that which once seem ordinary.  With a full Moon in the solar return, the individual can expect a lot of hard work and surprises, and at the same time a period of satisfaction, accomplishment and joy. 

 

Working with an old traditional timing method called profection, the individual focus for the year is the tenth house with the ruler Mercury located in the solar return tenth, confirming the importance of tenth house matters in the coming year.  One of the unfortunate things about the Sun in the tenth, unlike Jupiter or the Moon, if one can call it inopportune, is that everything good or bad that happens to the individual is through their own efforts, and not depended on others or blessings laid in front for their use.  The person needs to become aware and attentive of the circumstances, the surrounding influences, and to be able to improvise at a moment’s notice, to take advantage of the benefits in the coming year and to be able to reach the goals it has set for itself.  My conclusion to the solar return tenth house Sun is good and beneficial for tenth house matters, but the outcome is depended on the individual’s ability to work with the assets given to him, and the person’s accomplishment and success is well earned.  The real importance is not the end result, but how we work with what we have, that will give us the confidence and knowledge to a successful completion of our hopes and dreams where the tenth house is concerned.

“The 165 Degree or Johndro Aspect is Considered a Minor Aspect in the Major League”

 

I have always felt that life and everything in it is synergistic with the laws of the Universe, and if one could quiet one’s self long enough to listen and to be aware of it, its secrets will slowly be revealed.  My thoughts have always been if I am open, then at the right time, the right thing will come along into my life.  As of late, the intensity to learn all I can in astrology has been my main ambition and goal.  In the last issue of the Mountain Astrologer Magazine issue #163 June/July 2012, an article entitled “The 165 Degree Aspect” by Zane B. Stein, a leading authority on Chiron, was featured.  I have glanced at the article several times, without really reading it with my full attention.  I usually only use the major aspects in my delineations, and only use the minor aspects to confirm what I already suspected.  For myself, I have always tried to keep my delineations as simple as possible, as too many ingredients in the mixture would usually confuse me and my interpretations became too complex and less to the point of the matter.  For some reason, I felt I needed to pay more attention to this minor aspect of 165 degree, or quindecile, also known as the Johndro Aspect and or the Tao aspect.  Maybe it was the word Tao, which I have always associated with a way of life, which one needed to work with and to be in control of, which attracted my attention

 

Quoting from the article the keywords associated with this aspects are as follow: “determined, persistent, single-minded, dogged, unyielding, unrelenting, unwavering, persevering, uncompromising, reacting intensely to events by becoming all the more focused; unable to quit under any circumstances, not fazed by the apparent reality of a situation (not letting apparent reality interfere with one’s purpose); potential for becoming truly obsessive; believing that there is no such thing as a non-negotiable issue; continually to get up and return to the fray no matter how many times one is knocked down; not afraid of controversy.  When at its most negative, refusing to be swayed from one’s course by the realties of a situation can lead to self-destructive behavior.”  After reading this description, I saw myself within its words, which I always attributed to my ascendant square my Midheaven, with Neptune square the Moon and Mars in the sixth house square the tenth house, as the cause of my affliction.  I am now convinced it is because I have an almost exact 165 degree orb between Neptune and Mars.  In truth I never considered this affliction as totally bad or totally good.  In some instances I felt it was God sent, in that it helped me continue to the finish line of any difficult project I decided on.  At other times I thought it was a nuisance, as I could not seem to give up hope on any desire or wish, no matter how impractical it appeared.  Even when it seems fruitless, I wanted to wait until the next turn in the road, and even then would not give up my expectation that it would come to pass.  This was a light bulb turned on to high, illuminating a new avenue of discoveries.

 

Because it is happening in my own chart and with my own experiences, usually gives me the momentum to look into things, concepts, and ideas with a more open and concerted effort to uncover the truth and the validity of it.  Looking at a friend’s chart who was always very deliberate and directed in his philosophy and spiritual life, and that this was his main focus and objective in life, above anything else, appears to others as an obsession and a commandment of truth to proselytize others with.  Although he was not doing that, it appeared to others who did not know hi well that this was his main objective.  This made me wonder if the aspect was what we experience as individuals, or what others think they see in us because of the aspect working through us in unexpected ways?  I was not surprised to find an exact orb of a few seconds from his Sun in Gemini to Jupiter in Scorpio.  The keywords to this aspect seem to be more destructive then positive, but I have always had the conviction, nothing is absolutely beneficial or malefic, it is the way we put the attributes to work in our lives that determines the good or bad of it.  As I continue to read the article, it appeared that those who achieved something in life either had one or several of these aspects in their chart.  I could see where this aspect is needed to achieve anything worthwhile in life, as it keeps us going when hope is diminished and the light at the end is not in sight, until our goal is reached.  At the same time it can be an annoyance, in that we continue with something that has no end.  For those who have this aspect in their charts, I wonder what your thoughts are on the matter?

“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.

Respect and Appreciate are the Keywords for the 28 Gemini 43 New Moon on June 19th

As we are at the very beginning of the twenty first century and the time seems to be rapidly approaching the next century, we need to realize that nothing is ever going to have its usual or regular cycle that we will have become accustomed to, as that reliability has seem to have flown out of the window.  The norm or the customary has lost its allure to the cyber generation, whom are always seeking the new, innovative, and the must have.  So the erratic and the unusual will become their common place to hold their interest and attention, which is not surprising and to be expected in this world, which is changing as quickly as the velocity of sound.  This can be seen with the economical situation which seems to be winding its way up and down in an instant of a moment’s notice and the weather patterns seems to be taking their cue from the financial sector and is reacting without rhyme or reason with surprising and dismaying effects at every turn.

With this surrounding atmosphere and within a few days of the approaching summer equinox, the 28 Gemini 41 New Moon at 9:03 am PDT pm June 19th 2012 is expressing to us, to respect and to appreciate our essential good in all of creation.  With the essential dignities pointing to and concentrating on Venus conjunct Jupiter and the new moon phase in trine to Saturn and Neptune square Mars, it is asking us to acknowledge and to honor what we hold dear to our hearts.  What we consider the highest standards we choose to live by and the philosophy to guide our every step needs to take its position in the spotlight, and become a living testimony to what we really stand for and believe in.  We need to break out of our peer pressure and the preoccupation we have for processions, which we think will define us in the twenty first century.  To being true to our dreams, wishes and who we really are that have been buried deep within ourselves, which makes life worth living and at the same time fulfilling our purpose and destiny in this life.

“The Sabian symbol for the 29th degree of Gemini is taken from “The Sabian Symbols in Astrology by Marc Edmund Jones”, and what follows are my comments.

Gemini 29  The first mockingbird in spring  This is a symbol of the contribution of aesthetic experience to the strengthening of self at core, given emphasis by the skill in imitation through which any vicarious participation in life is enhanced.  Here man’s aspiration becomes articulate far in advance of his self-refinement, and as a result the promise in his given case may be manifest in achievements of which he would be quite incapable in normal course.  At the least he is called to attempt a self-revelation which will add real stature to his role in everyday living.  The keyword is quickening.  When positive, the degree is consistent stimulation to others in all human affairs, and when negative, annoying self-assertiveness.

This symbol speaks to us of an awakening of who we are, our ability, and our philosophy which is our foundation, and that which we may find support and help from, when all else fails.  It is a wake up call for action and urgency to pay attention to the talents and assets we have let lie dormant for inspiration and motivation of oneself to accomplish what we thought was once, impossible.  This symbol empowers each one of us that the creative power is within, and if we work with the laws of the Universe, our wishes will become reality.  It also is subtly reminding us not to allow our intuition in this day and age of the internet to lose sight or the use of it and the significance it has in directing our lives in the right direction.  So as we experience and meditate on the arrival of the 28 Gemini 43 New Moon on June 19th 2012, may we respect and appreciate all that the Universe has given us.

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.
