“Our Destiny to Godliness is Indicated in the Virgo New Moon Sept 8, 2010″

Another New Moon at 15 Virgo 40 at 3:31 a.m. PDT on September 8, 2010 is again about to unfold so that we can meditate and visualize the future, we wish to participate in.  This particular New Moon is telling us that we cannot get away so easily by just changing our tune and direction, but that we must put some sweat, tears and hard work into arriving at a direction that includes the spiritual oneness in our entire decision making.  To put the Spiritual back in our daily lives, it is important to understand that everything is connected, and when the ancient wise men assigned numbers and symbols to a thought or idea, there definitely was a reason and purpose for it.  Virgo rules the sixth house and to understand how the Moon’s energy will help us during this period, we must understand the importance of the number six and the six pointed star associated with this number.  The number six is considered a perfect and complete number since the number 1, 2, and 3 can be added or multiplied and still equal 6 (1+2+3=6 or 1×2×3=6).  Being six, it has an innate need to understand and gain insight and to find a way of placing and combing the experiences with the spiritual and material into a meaningful whole.  Two points always needs a third point for balance and to produce equilibrium and being perfect produces an equilateral triangle.  Being complete, the number six is represented by a six pointed star compose of two interlaced triangles, with the triangle pointing down representing the Universe sending its’ blessings and reaching down to experience our world.  The earth and those in it are represented by the triangle pointing up, representing us looking towards heaven and trying to emulate and become like the spiritual and the holy ones.

“The Sabian symbol for the 16th degree of Virgo is taken from “The Sabian Symbols in Astrology by Marc Edmund Jones”, and what follows are my comments.

Virgo 16  An Orangutan  This is a symbol of the primitive power which the processes of evolution have brought into leash with the development of mankind, and which each person must refine for his own use in meeting the demands of higher life.  There are always unmobilized resources in self to meet the exigencies of any unique situation in which an individual may unwittingly be involved, and maturity at root is a continual discovery of these and consequent increasing facility for rising to any possible occasion.  The keyword is dexterity.  When positive, the degree is man’s ability to strip himself to fundamentals, and there stand proudly on his own, and when negative, self-justification in crudity or violence.

As our modern world in this High Tech age seems to take giant steps into the future with every passing second, we must not forget who has created us and in His goodness has given us free will.  To think that we have done this alone brings on the crudeness and violence we have inflicted on God’s creations and the environment.  We must remember as we strive to reach perfection, we will bring all those around us to the next level, and those below that level to the next stage of enlightenment.  Whether we see it in spiritual or in material terms, we need to think for the good of the whole, and not just for our own benefit.  We must keep the symbol of the interlaced triangle in front of us, to remind us that the Divine is blessing and guiding us, and that we, his creations are always reaching upward in order to achieve his perfection and likeness.  With the difficult aspects still in the night sky, the change the Universe wants is for us to keep our connection and interconnection with the Universe.  Like the number six our destiny towards Godliness needs to be perfected and completed, as we need to see and remind ourselves that we are the interlaced triangle that is pointing up and is trying to reach perfection and completion.

“The Lovers’ Sextile Versus The Empress’ Trine”








“The Lovers’ Sextile Versus The Empress’ Trine” is a somewhat stylish title, if I say so myself, but in actuality there is no contest to which is the beneficial aspect.  Most astrologers, including myself would say the Trine is the most helpful, but after the following thoughts, one might change one’s opinion.  Astrology like the other occult sciences deals with numbers and their symbolism and relates everything back together.  As Morin taught, everything has its’ meanings and the ability to understand the relationship of all the planets and the houses, to one another is the key to the delineation of any chart.

The Sextile is sixty degrees between two planets with the number reduced to six.  The Trine is one hundred twenty degrees between two planets, or two sextiles apart with the number reduced to a twelve, then to a three.  The spiritual meaning of the number Three deals with the holy trinity; the past, present, and future, just to name two examples.  There is a need to express yourself creatively, independently, and to consider the direction you are going to take towards your future goals.  The number Six reveals solutions for us in an organized method aimed towards diplomacy when dealing with sensitive situations.  The number Twelve deals with an important spiritual completion to a project such as the twelve tribes, the twelve houses in the Zodiac, etcetera.

The three in the Major tarot trump is The Empress card (Venus the ruling planet) which shows a beneficent pregnant Mother Goddess giving birth to all potential concepts and forms, capable of existence in the entire cosmos.  The number six is the Lovers card (Gemini the ruling sign) which is essentially the attraction of ideas.  The twelve is The Hanged Man (Neptune the ruling planet) which signifies one who must undertake a journey of growth.

Sextiles is the easy flow of energy between two planets that gives the individual the ability to accomplish much and the opportunities are easily accessible.  This does not mean that it will be laid in the person’s lap, but that the person still has the responsibility to make it happen.  The Trines are approximately four Signs apart and are usually planets found in the elements of Fire, Air, Earth, or Water.  The aspect is similar to the sextile and is more favorable, but the down side is the willingness to do little with the gifts.  One is blessed with minimal effort and the presence of the trine helps to balance out the other less favorable aspects.

What is the conclusion one comes up with is that both aspects are favorable, depending on how we put it to use.  Step back for a moment, and you will realize that although the Trine is more favorable, it is also the aspect that is our Achilles’ heel, which may bring our down fall.  The Sextile pushes us to look around our environment and to make decisions for a better future.  It reveals the hidden talents and assets that are hiding under our insecurities and brings them to light.  Like the Lover card the lovers create a third point in the relationship which is the two becoming one.  They no longer think as two separate individuals but as one unit in the universe.  The Trine is made up of two sextiles, telling us although we have a silver spoon placed in our lap; we better put it to good use to get the beneficial rewards.  A sextile to a third point produces a Yod which is the finger of God or Fate, telling us to direct our thoughts to a central point or cause.  So as with a trine, it is telling us to secure a firm foundation for the future we want   With past experiences I have come to the conclusion that the squares, oppositions and sextiles are easier to work with in achieving the potentials in our chart.
