“Attainment is Passion Mixed With Knowledge Says the 18 Gemini New Moon on June 8th 2013”

Gemini_2
As the year subtly unfolds, one can observe through the weather patterns, the political situations, and the financial climate, something is amiss. The writing is on the wall or should I said in the stars, if only we could decipher without any illusions, what is about to befall us. With three eclipses right in a row behind us, the forceful energies of these aspects should be as clear as night and day. Our ability to see the true circumstances of our situation is hindering our perceptions, our understandings and our accomplishments. In the age of the computers we no longer see eclipses as messages and signs from the Universe to help predict what the months ahead will hold. In this climate, the 18 Gemini New Moon on June 8th 2013 at 8:55 am PDT is saying that any attainment is made up of passion mixed with knowledge. An old planetary aspect the kite seldom talked about involving Venus and Pluto is reminding us that reason and knowledge mixed with wisdom and passion is the only way to create those things that will rejuvenate our being, but it is important to persevere to the end. We need to stay the course even when we see the end, in sight.

The Sabian symbol for the 18th and 19th degree of Gemini is taken from “The Sabian Symbols in Astrology by Marc Edmund Jones”, and what follows are my comments.

Gemini 18 Two Chinese men talking Chinese This is a symbol of an everyday exclusiveness on the intellectual side of experience, the individual strengthened not as much by actual distinctiveness, as by a continual co-operation with fellow enthusiasts in various special area of interest. A species of uniqueness is idealized as a corrective for self-diffusion. There are here the potentials of high erudition and of an exceptional refinement of the personality along original or unusual lines. The keyword is difference. When positive, the degree is the effective mobilization of self and others for life’s more specialized objectives, and when negative, a thorough dissipation of selfhood through alien relationships.

Gemini 19 A large archaic volume This is a symbol of the ultimate indestructibility of experience, so that any path once traversed may be taken again with a greater ease and a broader self-discovery. There is here the assurance of illimitable resources in wisdom, and the suggestion that this heritage may be made manifest at any time in an immediate and practical guidance. The past always provides an illumination of the present, and man achieves best as he cultures a real sense of obligation to his own roots. The keyword is background. When positive, the degree is a special capacity for the recovery of prior advantages or the effective disentanglement of present involvements, and when negative, a slavish worship of tradition and authority.

This symbol speaks to learning and obtaining knowledge, but is it intimating that knowledge is power? Or is it asking us that we need to put this knowledge to good use? That knowledge alone stored up, is like old books on the shelf, never being read. Knowledge like any procession needs to be worked and used. This new moon is telling us we need to take what we learn and what we believe in, and mix it with our passion to create the world we want. That passion is the fire under our knowledge that will kick start new ideas into the realities we are searching for. That passion keeps us going when hope is thin, and will also see us through to the finish line. At the same time that we nourish our ability to learn, we need to nourish the right passions to keep us going when the going gets rough. This moon phase is reminding us that our thoughts are the foundation of who we are, but without the actions, it does nothing. It is telling us to walk our talk, if only for our own edification and approval. That any attainment we achieve will be a mixture of passion, wisdom, knowledge and reason.

“The Sweet Art of Doing Nothing and Doing it Well Says 20 Aires 40 New Moon on Apr 10th 2013”

Aries_2
As we approach the first new moon after the spring equinox, the aspects in the night sky appear to me like the calm before the storm, that is about to descend upon us. It seems to be giving us a breather space to get our house in order. Allowing us a quiet-time in order for us to concentrate to get what we will need, done. We may be surprise what it is asking us to do. In this atmosphere the 20 Aires 40 New Moon at 2:35 am PDT on April 10th 2013 is telling us to practice the sweet art of doing nothing (il dolce far niente) and doing it well, as the foundation for a better future. The action we need to take is no action at all, but the action of being. This thought, in my opinion is expressed to the fullest by the Italian culture in their love of life, beauty and of course, in their enjoyment of food. Is it actually telling us to do nothing, or is it is telling us to have a busy-free moment, just to be in that space and to live it to the fullest?

With much of the activity of the aspects being concentrated in certain areas, much of the noise and chatter to vie for our attention is lessen at the moment. The question that comes to mind, is the Universe telling us to make a concerted effort to get what we want done at this time? Or is the Universe telling us that we need to begin to experience the moment as it is, and to see the moment for what it is? With the busy and the complicated world of cyberspace, having some time to oneself is a luxury, and something we need to cultivate. Allowing oneself time to do nothing, is one actually being in a void, or is nothingness more difficult than we can imagine in achieving it? By being in the moment, even if we are supposedly doing nothing, we are feeling and experiencing the moment as the Universe has created for us. In that instance we are in communion with gratitude with our maker and in appreciating the gift of we are given.

“The Sabian symbol for the 21st degree of Aries is taken from “The Sabian Symbols in Astrology by Marc Edmund Jones”, and what follows are my comments.

Aries 21 A pugilist entering the ring This is a symbol of a complete lack of personal sensitiveness. There are here the raw elements of experience, primarily on the side of self-realization as man exhibits full confidence in his own powers and seeks the support of that audience the world will always provide for the spectacle when anyone is willing to risk major fruits of achievement. Implicit in the symbolism is a need to be up and at the business of life. The keyword is exertion. When positive, the degree is a mobilization of the self’s capacities in a concentrated attempt at self-establishment, and when negative, blind rebellion and a willingness to squander every resource on pseudo values.

This symbol is timely as it speaks to us, reminding us that when we achieve expertise in a chosen area, one gains the sense of self confidence to take risk and criticism. It also alludes to a need to be actively involved in life or where the action is or where it supposedly is not. On one level of existence, this symbol indicates one who enjoys controversy and challenge. What more of a test and a hullabaloo can come about when one appears to others to prefer the sweet art of doing nothing. Especially at this point in time, it seems one need to stride and to achieve for one’s happiness to prove one’s standing among one’s peers. This New Moon is reaffirming that we need to take action, but the action we need to take may be the very action that requires us to be in the moment. Allowing us to do nothing, but to be where we are. This New Moon with the Universe is allowing us some busy-free moments in supporting us in creating the foundation to face the challenges ahead of us.

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

Pisces_2
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.

“To Take Care as We are the Caretakers Says the 22 Aquarius 21 New Moon Feb 9th 2013”

 

 

Aquarius_2

The second new moon on the horizon after the winter solstice; signals the start of the Chinese New Year, officially beginning February 10th 2013, the year of the Water snake, indicating a year of dramatic and unsuspected changes.  Within this climate of excitement and celebration, the 22 Aquarius 21 New Moon begins it’s sojourn on the 9th of February at 11:21 pm PST, telling us we need to take care as we are the caretakers of our thoughts, our ideas, our fellowmen and all that is within our world.  Caution and concern are the keywords, and our actions and reactions need to be adjusted accordingly, to what is being understood and what we call our own. 

We need to pay attention and not to jump to conclusions, if we are to avoid any mistakes we may regret.  The aspects in the night sky is confirming the meaning of the year of the snake in that what is left unsaid is more important then what is being said.  As all new moons is a chance to begin again, and as it coincides with the celebration of Chinese New Year, it gives us a second chance to review, renew and embark on making our world a better, safer and happier place in the coming months.  It is telling us that we can no longer sit back, and hope all will fall into place.  Action and discipline is essential as we go forth with daring to the dark unknown and uncharted areas of our future.

“The Sabian symbol for the 23rd degree of Sagittarius is taken from “The Sabian Symbols in Astrology by Marc Edmund Jones”, and what follows are my comments.

Sagittarius 23  Immigrants entering  This is a symbol of opportunity caught and held through its effective recognition in advance, here dramatized by the creative faith of those who risk their well-being in bringing their skills into pioneer areas of self-expression.  The human soul must be a consistent manifestation of its own special genius, and the individual escapes any major impasse in his life when he is able to transplant his roots.  Reality is never more sure than when regrasped in a radical reorientation.  The keyword is entrance.  When positive, the degree is courage in crossing new frontiers and skill in repeating or improving on prior achievement, and when negative, a surrender of the real in a pursuit of the false.

This symbol speaks to us of our ability to see and grasp opportunities with our willingness to take risk.  In leaving the safety of what we are familiar with, in the hope of finding greater happiness and satisfaction.  This dramatizes the need to let go of situations that offer no further potential for growth or creative expression, and to reestablish oneself where the possibilities are better.  It emphasizes our capability to make change and to face the unknown with courage.  When the going gets tough, it speaks to our competence to be honest and truthful about ourselves in order to work with what we have.  This Aquarius New Moon is reminding us that we need to choose our thoughts and actions carefully, because being caretakers of them we become responsible for their success or failure.

“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.

“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.

“Imparting Knowledge Inspires Change Encourages the 22 Libra 32 New Moon Oct 15th 2012”

As the chill of the winds begins to gather, and the summer breezes begin to fade, and with the last of the summer harvest being picked, the cold dark winter days are almost upon us.  This was the time period in the early days of this country, that the preparation to hunt for game, in order to store up for the months ahead, was about to begin.  If the families were to survive the winter, care in deciding and storing up provisions was an important factor for the days ahead.  In this day and age as the summer activities come to an end, a need to prepare for what will be needed to carry us through the wintry weather, is essential in renewing our physical and spiritual bodies for the coming spring.  Regrettably, unlike the days of old, in this modern world, there is a lot to amuse us and the importance and need of refreshing and renewing our inner life has taken a backseat, to the wonderments and excitements of being entertained during the coming months.

Fortunately the Universe in its wisdom and foresight has a plan for us and has given us some difficult aspects to work through and at the same time the Universe also has given us other aspects to help us to successfully accomplish our goals.  Our responsibility is to listen and to work through the messages, which our higher self is communicating to us.  One of the blessings the Universe has selected for us is the up coming 22 Libra 32 New Moon on October 15th 2012 at 5:02 am PDT encouraging and emphasizing that imparting knowledge inspires change.  It is not only the imparting of our knowledge, but at the same time to listen and to learn from others.  We need to remember that we are all connected and need to work together for the benefit for all.  That Mother Earth, the Moon, the Sun and all creation has a message to share, and that message is we all need to focus and to work together in unison, for the benefit of all that inhabit the earth.

“The Sabian symbol for the 23rd degree of Libra is taken from “The Sabian Symbols in Astrology by Marc Edmund Jones”, and what follows are my comments.

Libra 23  Chanticleer  this is a symbol of the soul’s ultimate self-realization through a basic integrity of its own insights or judgments, and of the unchallenged acceptance it is able to gain for its particular role in human affairs.  Implicit in the symbolism are the practical rewards which come from the more effectively dramatized distinction of everyday living, and the enduring significance which the self achieves for itself through the place in life it succeeds in making its own.  The keyword is fervor.  When positive, the degree is a fearless self-affirmation which gains a sympathetic attention and wins immediate allegiance from the hearts and minds of everybody, and when negative, ill-starred conceit and ineffective bombast.

The definition of Chanticleer taken from the American Heritage Dictionary is 1.) The rooster  2.) To sing, and I believe the author is implying the rooster is the master of his domain signaling the dawn of day with a loud and boisterous crow.  This symbol speaks of the confidence of the self image and the need for others to recognize and to acknowledge this perception the person has of them self.  The image dramatizes the enthusiasm, ambition, assertiveness, and the pride and the purpose of the position the person holds in the community. It also stresses the need to draw attention to what is important to all involved, and a secondary and more subtle implication, is that a wake-up call to what is important is vital at this moment in time.  The keyword, fervor is the answer to our success at this time, as passion and dedication is the impulse to continue when the going gets a bit rough.  This symbol emphasizes the message of this 22 Libra 32 New Moon that the knowledge is power and that imparting that knowledge inspires change.  Although change is in the air through the aspects that have been lingering in the night sky, knowledge is it’s impetuous.

“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.

“The Will and Commitment are Being Highlighted by the 25 Leo 08 Aug 17th New Moon”

As the world continues to turn with its bumpy ride through the year 2012, countries are realizing that they are not alone, but actually depended upon each other for their welfare if they are to get through the financial crunch without a domino’s effect hurting everyone.  In this surrounding atmosphere the 25 Leo 09 New Moon on august 17th 2012 at 8:56 pm PDT makes its appearance highlighting the need for the will and the commitment to work for the good of the whole instead of just the me, as we continue for our survival through difficult times.  The Leo Moon sextiles Saturn conjunct Mars and making an aspect to both Pluto square Uranus with Venus in opposition to Pluto and square Uranus.  This New Moon phase is a reminder that each of us is a spark and a creation of the Divine, expressing our individuality in the cosmic picture, but yet at the same time we need to realize we are connected to one another by the divine essence that runs through each of us.  The whole picture is greater then its part emphasizing the phase “United we stand, divided we fall”.  This statement is not only extremely appropriate at this time in the larger picture as a community and globally, but as individuals, if our emotional, intuitional and intellectual being are in conflict to one another, our ability to fulfill our goals will be futile. 

“The Sabian symbol for the 26th degree of Aquarius is taken from “The Sabian Symbols in Astrology by Marc Edmund Jones”, and what follows are my comments.

Leo 26  A rainbow  This is a symbol of the over-all realization which comes to man for his guidance whenever he strives to reach his goals of a more enduring sort.  Here is assurance of divine participation in the most unpromising of human relationships.  The individual learns that there is a consistent ordering throughout the world in which he finds himself, and that nature will co-operate effectively with every vision he chooses to keep alive on his own account.  The keyword is significance.  When positive, the degree is a sense of very real spiritual power and presence in all personal effort and desire, and when negative, an uncritical acceptance of every passing hope or dream as something on which to depend.

This symbol speaks to our inner higher self in the realization of our connection to the Divine spark and to the guidance and hope it gives to us through the signs in nature of the presence of the Divine in all things with the gifts of aspiration, wish-fulfillment, faith, encouragement, and inspiration in knowing that at the end of the rainbow is the pot of gold.  The rainbow is the traditional symbol of hope dramatizing the need for faith and trust and the use and application of spiritual principles and standards for the good and benefit of all.  It is not in the pursuit to find the end of the rainbow, but the expectation, the visualization, and the thoughts of what is to be expected and looked for that develops our potentials which become the pot of gold.  It is the knowledge and the understanding that by using these spiritual principles and spiritual laws for the good of everyone, rather then for the few, that our vision and imagination will supersede its expectation.  As we approach this 25 Leo 08 New Moon, let us gain the will, the will power and the commitment to work for the good of the all and to realize we are all parts of the greater whole and the all.

“Now or Never is the Moment Says the 26 Cancer 54 New Moon on July 18 2012”

Like any map that gives us directions, to get to where we want to go, or an instruction pamphlet to get us started on the right foot, the stars and the planets are a guide and instructions with indications of the possibilities that lie across our paths as we continue our journey in life.  The problem that continues to plaque us is the possibility of misreading or misunderstanding the information.  Either by our carelessness or that the information given is too complex and confusing.  The complexity of the message and the subtle influences can create devastating results that sometimes appears to be simple, plain and to the point.  The 26 Cancer 54 New Moon on July 18th 2012 at 9:25 pm PDT is saying, it is now or never.  Pointing to the fact that we need to take actions, without warning us of the dangers involved.  Mars is in opposition to Uranus and square to Pluto demanding action, intent, passion, reform and regeneration.

As the night skies have been indicating a real need for change for the last few years, and to this point in time, the actions taken have not gotten us any further along then we were in the past.  An urgent need for action that makes a difference is imminent that we can no longer tolerate the circumstances, as they are.  The handwriting on the wall is demanding us that action needs to be taken before we no longer have a choice.  Being pushed into a situation where there are no choices or changes that can be made.   At the same time, it is subtly warning us to take care and to use insight and foresight in dealing with the circumstances of change and transformation.  That we need to be mindful of our every thought, word and action we encounter, when working towards revolutionizing the old ways into something that will work and benefit all.  We need to be careful not to bring up emotions and actions, which would separate us from a united cause.

Cancer 27  A storm in a canyon  This is a symbol of a pyramiding reality on the side of external circumstances, or of violence and terror as divine in their capacity for lifting man out of his aplomb and demanding some manifestation o his inner ideals and enduring values.  Here is the indomitable integrity of everything to be taken as of consequence in its own right, shown in the energy with which it preserves itself.  Nature ever dramatizes man’s unleashed powers, or his ability to rise in supremacy over each momentary crisis.  The keyword is intensification.  When positive, the degree is an enlistment of every resource in life for a heightened expression of self, and when negative, fatuous enjoyment of turmoil.

This symbol totally speaks to us of awakening our complacency through the events we have been experiencing as a global community and our individual circumstances, which can no longer be ignored.  It alludes to a situation we have no control of, but at the same time we are able to prepare and be ready for what is about to happen.  We can not control what is on its way, but we can make preparations to deal with it.  This represents and demonstrates our ability to use the gifts the Universe has bestowed on us.  The ability to rise above any situation or crisis and to use every resource at our disposal in meeting any of the challenges that life has to offer.  In working out the solutions, it is advising us not to get caught up in emotional confrontations that will derail us from accomplishing our intended result.  Let us then come prepared with insights and foresights as we meet this New Moon in Cancer saying to us, it is now or never,
