Sabian Symbol for the Solar-Lunar Month: "a Jewish rabbi performing his duties"

Sabian Symbol for the Solar-Lunar Year: "the music of the spheres"

A Great Mirror in the Sky is shining down, reflecting. 

In the cycle of the Sun and Moon, the Full Moon phase of this month (October 27 - 30/31) is parallel to a "double Full Moon."  (It is the Full lunar phase of the Full solar phase.) The fullest amount of light and therefore the fullest capability by which to see or become enlightened by what the MIrror is reflecting comes next week during the Full Moon phase. 

Until then, the light builds and revelations/insights continue. All that's needed to understand about this coming Full Moon phase is that is the most powerful Full Moon of the year - more powerful than recent "Supermoons." 

So, things that tend to rise up during Full Moons - emotional reactions, power and control issues, relationship triangles, reckless abandon, shadow projections, and general lunacy - rise up to reveal knowledge or information.  Pairing the new knowledge or information with our experience produces a new level of wisdom.

As the Great Moon Mirror in the Sky continues to grow, these themes begin to come into effect today:

SUN:  The Sun is discharging the Sabian symbol of "mankind's vast enduring effort to reach for knowledge transferable from generation to generation."  What we are learning now (and what we are changing now) is important to our futures.  What knowledge has sought you since April 18, 2015?  Much effort has been expended for this knowledge to be revealed.  You could say that it took a complete re-set of the "music of the spheres" - the properties of life itself - for it to occur.

In perfect timing, however, the EARTH reaches the degree of "the music of the spheres" - the primary energetic theme for this year (this new epoch) since it was the degree of the New Moon in Aries on April 18, 2015.  As we experience the 180-degree influence, or the fullest expression of what we need to learn this year, we are wise to deeply consider all that the Great Mirror is revealing to us about ourselves, others, and the world.  As I mentioned before the lunar month began, this is a pivotal - historic - month in our individual lives and in the world.

MARS continues to disseminate "a volcanic eruption" today, so be aware of the potential for fiery outbursts, impulsivity, and a fair measure of road (or other) rage.  The goal here is release of what has been suppressed, what has built up, and what has been hidden.  Always interesting when Mars reaches this degree.

MERCURY is at "miners emerging from a coalmine" an as Mercury moves out of the full shadow of its retrograde in a couple of days, it is enhancing the "transfer of knowledge" theme of the current energy.  This symbol's energy wants to bring things into the light.  It seeks air.  It seeks relief and release.

VENUS is still at "a bride with her veil snatched away" - bringing revelations and information on us quickly.  But this energetic tries to come back into control as Venus moves to "a powerful statesman overcomes a state of political hysteria."  This energy is about general politics, but it is also the "politics" of relationships - which are anathema to life.  Our true nature does not seek to dominate or control.

At 5:17 pm ET/9:17 pm UT, Saturn will move to the 4th degree of Sagittarius and the Sabian symbol "a little child learning to walk."  The revelations of the Great Mirror in the Sky can make us feel vulnerable, but they can also free us for other adventures.

It takes owls that are not only wise but also ones who are brave enough to respect and honor the teachings of the Great Mirror.  One has to be brave of spirit to look at one's spirit when truth is revealed. Let's watch the Moon grow over the next week together. Let's accept the wisdom that is beaming upon us.
