“Opportunities Are Quick to Disappear Mumbles the 2 Aries 22 New Moon on Mar 22 2012”

As the darkness of night become shorter and the daylight glows brighter and longer with the cold winter air giving way to the warmer and more cheerful weather patterns, a sense that the old ways need to give way to new perspectives and objectives is in the air.  Amid this hopeful atmosphere the 2 Aries 22 New Moon at 7:38 am PDT on March 22nd 2012 appears on the horizon and is subtly mumbling that opportunities are quick to disappear.  The potential of this moon phase is emphasized by the closeness to the vernal equinox, with the concentration of energy in Aries a cardinal sign, the retrograde of Mercury and Mars, with Jupiter trine Pluto, and Neptune into Pisces.  The aspects are warning us that the opportunities for a beneficial outcome is in the air, but that we need to use caution with our actions and thoughts, if we are to take advantage of the moment.  Impulsive thoughts or actions are pitfalls at this point, and the time we have to grasp for the change we need to make, may be sooner to end than we think.  The foundation of our beliefs that we have been building upon is about to be tested and the proof of the pudding will be revealed.  As we enter the year 2012 being set in our mode of handling any situation needs to give way to being alert, open and willing to deal with whatever crosses our path, and the time for action is now.    

“The Sabian symbol for the 3rd degree of Aries is taken from “The Sabian Symbols in Astrology by Marc Edmund Jones”, and what follows are my comments.

Aries 3  A cameo profile of a man in the outline of his country  This is a symbol of a real breadth of participation in everyday affairs, and of the extent to which every individual tends to epitomize the tradition and culture from which he has emerged.  There is here the suggestion of both an impersonal self-dedication to broader community interests and a highly personal dramatization of the self as a focus for group actuality.  The keyword is expectation.  When positive, the degree is man’s capacity for giving full play to every ramification of the reality he has created for himself, and when negative, an unimaginative conventionality which leaves him in bondage to every current stereotype of human relations.

This symbol speaks to us of a personal and yet impersonal involvement of life that spirals around us in that we as unique individuals, representing not only who we are, but as the collective identity of our community, country, heritage, cultural and social traditions.  The implication is that the uniqueness of the individual is overshadowed by his singular expression and dedication to the achievement of social, rather than personal goals and wishes.  This image epitomizes the highest and grandest ideas, talents, and traditions associated with any particular group, organization, country, or the global community.  It encourages enthusiasm, joy and satisfaction that our greatest advantages lie in working towards the achievement of group objectives.  Here the aspects in the night sky come into play by encouraging us to take time out of our busy lives for rethinking, reevaluating, and reviewing what has gone before, and what we want to follow and what we want to bring to fruition for the future.  The Universe is telling us to be certain that if we are representing utopian ideas, thoughts and actions that these concepts are what truly represents who we are and what we really believe and stand for.  The planets in retrograde at this time is telling us to take care and caution in our thoughts, decisions and actions.  Impulsiveness is not the word of the day, but action is, as the 2 Aries 22 New Moon mumbles and reminds us that opportunities are quick to disappear and fade away.

“28 Virgo 47 Full Moon Reminds Us That Our Future is the Outcome of Our Past”

In this very busy world we live in, as we approach each New and Full Moon period, it gives us the opportunity to contemplate where we have been and what direction we should take in the future.  Several important factors mark the Full Moon at 28 Virgo 27 occurring at 11:10 a.m. PDT on March 19th 2011 as a turning and pivoting point of time for the changes that has been indicated by the aspects of the planets in the last few years.  This is the second of six Super Moons this year which indicates that it is at its closes distance to the Earth.  Another factor is that this Full Moon is square the nodes which peaks one day before the vernal equinox on March 20th at 4:21 p.m. PDT which adds to its key significance in the final outcome of anything accomplished at this time.

The ancients considered the equinoxes as important spiritual days to perform rituals to be in good communications and relationships with their Gods.  With Mercury conjunct Jupiter in Aries opposition to Saturn in Libra and the equinox in close proximity, it is reminding us that our future is a reflection and outcome of our past and shadowy sides of our nature.  In that case we need to work with, amend, revise or change our thinking of the past and present, to make the wishes and hopes, a reality in the future.  This moon period is allowing our inner spiritual psyche to realize that our future is within the realms of our creative mind and emotions.  

“The Sabian symbol for the Moon in 29 degrees of Virgo and for the Sun in 29 degrees of Pisces is taken from “The Sabian Symbols in Astrology by Marc Edmund Jones”, and what follows are my comments.

Virgo 29  A man gaining secret knowledge from a paper he is reading  This us a symbol of the world’s conservatism, and of the refusal of nature to surrender any part of her heritage unnecessarily.  The fixity of idea by which human beings preserve their culture is also a protection for all hidden wisdom and unsuspected ways of knowing, since the deeper awareness is merely a broader reference of a further application of stabilities which constitute a universe at large.  The possibilities of greater experience lie in embryo throughout the lesser.  The keyword is discovery.  When positive, the degree is imagination brought to the full of its powers through conscious effort, and when negative, loss of common sense in supposition.

Pisces 29  A prism  This is a symbol of the world’s stability and of the refusal of nature  to change any aspect of herself unnecessarily.  The reliability of normal process and the consistency of true intelligence are the foundation of a common knowledge which man has been expanding through the centuries, and his continuance of the control he has gained over his environment is promise of much more wonderful achievement ahead.  He is able to take any convenient facet of the reality at his hand and fashion it into an effective instrument for a measure of the whole potential.  The keyword is validation.  When positive, the degree is exceptional accomplishment through judgment of unusual accuracy, and when negative, fatuous pride of intellect.

These two Sabian symbols remind us that the Universe has established laws, that if we work with them, the effect will be known.  When we seek these secrets and mysteries with sincerity and use them wisely, the world is at our finger tips.  As the light breaks into many rows of color like the rainbow as it passes through a prism.  It never changes its pattern, no matter how many times the light flows though it.  So too, are the laws of the Universe.  That is why if we wish to change our past circumstances, we need to consciously and subconsciously change our thinking.  Our preoccupation of any thought will create the very thing we are thinking about.  If we wish to create a new and better world, we need to realize that our future is the outcome of our past and present.  If we are unhappy with what we see, we need to change our thinking and create a new path of thinking, to create a more hopeful and successful future.
