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"
Sabaoth, the name of the Sun according to the ancient Gnostics, sends a message - finally! The Sun released an M1.9-vlass flare with coronal mass ejection last night at 10:26 pm ET/this morning at 3:26 am UT). We look at the degree of the Moon and associated Sabian symbol to get the clearest message.
The CME was released at 19 Leo and the Sabian symbol of "a houseboat party." This message tells us that things are safe, secure, and structured, though they are going into unfamiliar areas or places that would seem incongruous or going into "different waters." But, it is still a party, so it is supposed to be fun.
It is also supposed to be different, not only because a house boat is an uncommon place to live or have a party, but also because the Sun was making a trine (120 degrees away) with Uranus, the planet of changes, shocks, surprises, putting us where we need to be no matter what, and all things unusual or even weird. Above all, Uranus changes things up and saves us when we are off course. And, not to forget, "Uranus saves us by our rejections."
It is interesting to me that Mercury retrograded at the degree of "a boat landing stands in need of reconstruction" and we had so much activity at that degree, and the first significant CME since September 20th happens at a degree with the similar motifs.
Is the Sun telling us that the structure and construction of our lives and world, undergoing so much renaissance, now is reconstructing to where the value of love, life, freedom, wisdom, and beauty can be more fully experienced? What if we affirmed this and devoted ourselves to the notion? What would we create?
Here are our other clues about what is in play today:
THE SUN: "an inventor performs a laboratory experiment" - This energy wants to understand or find a greater meaning to what is already "on the table" but is curious to change or add other elements. If something is not working out the way you would like, change it up or add or take away something. Experiment! On a grander scale, an alchemical transformation of consciousness is happening under the purview of the Sacred Masculine (in many ways, one of which is the emissary of the aeon Thelete. I am instructed that Elias, God of the West, God of Transformation, God of Alchemy, is the scientist among the Band of Brothers, as I like to call them).
EARTH: "a porter carrying heavy baggage" - This symbol shows burdens and where we are carrying too much of a load. We may be taking on too much responsibility for others' "stuff" or "baggage." What needs to be put down or released?
MARS: "a boy with a censer serves near the priest at the altar" - Oversight and holding accountability is the nature of this symbol nowadays. The "uninitiated" are beginning to keep tabs and keep people true. The boy serves God, not the priest. He serves "near the priest" but he is the true light of innocence. Added with this is..
MERCURY: "a youth holding a lighted candle in a devotional ritual" - Mercury is at 04 Scorpio, opposite the Chiron Point. This re-engages the "wounding, healing, teaching" and "inner child" elements today, which could come in the form of a surprising communication or connection. It is always a good idea to light a candle and re-connect with our inner child, remembering our dreams. Be aware that traumas may be re-triggered today as Mercury transits this degree of the zodiac. This would particularly affect how we think and what we say. Ultimately, the energy is designed to heal through light. Added with this is...
BLACK MOON: "a blazing fireplace in a deserted home" - The Black Moon has almost reached the end of this degree, and I have not discussed it. This symbol is always about energy that is unseen and sustaining. We forget that it is always there and that we can reconnect with it anytime. It is the inner heart fire.
NEPTUNE: " a girl blowing a bugle" - I mention this one since it is a big part of the clarion wake up call that has been the primary function of Neptune for several months. Neptune can either cloud and shroud or it can clear and steer. Since we are in the time of year that is like a month-long Full Moon phase - full light - the addition of Neptune's power to send out a call is strong. Neptune will continue to "sit" at this degree and send out a call until it stations direct on November 17. What does the blowing bugle tell you?
So today, we are like inventors performing experiments to create something better. Lucky for us that there is a lot of light available today for working late into the night to figure something out, change it up, or transform it. We are mighty beings who are not waiting around. We are creating the Second Renaissance - the return of wisdom, will, and sanity.
