Taurus_2
As time continues to unfold, the year of the snake is fulfilling the promise of the unexpected, the unusual, and the abrupt happenings manifesting in extraordinary ways. It is essential we keep one step ahead of it, if we wish to accomplish what we desire in the future. Even if we can not anticipate the situation, we need to be open enough, to improvise wisely, if we need to, when the time comes. In this atmosphere and anticipation, the 18 Taurus 31 Solar Eclipse on May 9th 2013 at 5:29 pm PDT makes it s presence felt. It is emphasizing the need to revive the myths, legends, mysteries and the sacred knowledge that has survive through the millenniums. At the same time, to restore the wonderment and the excitement of it all. The Universe is reminding us that it is through the wisdom of the past that we will begin to see a better future. It has been our disregard of the sacred knowledge and allowing then to be hidden away that we have forgotten how they have been the helping hand to get us where we are now.

With a stellium of planets concentrated in one part of the chart, one is reminded of the power, energy and the force it will have on whatever it is focus on. Especially, as the planets are in Taurus in a fixed sign, the creative force will find it very difficult to change its position once its direction is made clear. Taurus is also the very proud guardian of the sacred wisdom and will protect it at all cost. It is imperative at this time that we are clear to ourselves of where our starting point is coming from and what we really believe in, as this is the foundation we are building upon. Once our direction is clear, the energy that will be release will be so powerful and forceful, it will astound us. There are no second thoughts or a change of mind. One must be sure what one is asking for, is what one really wants. The mysteries, sacred knowledge and the magic and the wonderment from the past mixed with our clear vision of our wishes will bring dreams into reality.

“The Sabian symbol for the 20th degree of Taurus is taken from “The Sabian Symbols in Astrology by Marc Edmund Jones”, and what follows are my comments.

Taurus 20 Wind clouds and haste this is a symbol of the transiency which characterizes life for the average individual, and of the instability which results from the disinclination of most people to give very much of themselves to their experience. Implicit in the negative symbolism is the divine aplomb of the ego, ever able to hold to its course through superficial excitement. There is a real spiritual lightness here as an outer mark of the soul’s fundamental freedom. The keyword is exaltation. When positive, the degree is efficiency in controlling events at any point of transition or crisis, and when negative, a diffusion of self and waste of energy in an attempt to grasp the myriad facets of the unessential.

This symbol speaks to us of the insecurity and the instability that will surround us if we try to avoid any commitment and responsibility. At the same time, it is reminding us not to rush into any situation, but emphasizes the importance of staying calm and holding steady in the midst of temporary turmoil and change, represented by the winds and clouds. At its highest merit, it speaks of our ability to combine the myths, the legends, the mysteries and the sacred knowledge in order to stay centered in the face of sudden tribulations and trials. Applying this knowledge, it will instill in us the ability to recognize and to seize the moments and opportunities that are created by our wonderment and excitement. All eclipses speak to us of the sacred knowledge, myths, legends, and mysteries. This particular eclipse is asking to revive the magic and the wonderment of it all, to make it as real today as it was for those, long ago. This will be one of the keys that will secure us safely through the trials we will face in the coming year. As the saying goes, “one either uses it or loses it”

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.
