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"
The Sun released another flare (M3.7) with coronal mass ejection yesterday at 8:52 am ET/1:52 pm UT. As I discussed yesterday, we look at the position of the Moon to understand the nature of the super-charged energetic of the CME, and thus what is "discharged" into life on Earth (yesterday's report remains posted below).
The Moon was located at 24 Leo and the Sabian symbol of "totally concentrated upon inner spiritual attainment, a man is sitting in a sate of complete neglect of his body." This energy came in to provide epiphanies, aha moments, understandings, and correlations so that our minds and bodies could come back into balance.
When the time of year that is like a month-long Full Moon is coming toward a close, all of the energetic levels of the body (emotional, mental, physical, spiritual, cosmic...) are "hyper-driving." This lunar month (the Libra lunar cycle which began on October 12) has taxed the physical body because it has been so involved in seeing with the eyes, hearing with the ears and then processing with the brain. (Maybe this is one of the teachings of why the wolf howls at the Full Moon - he/she finally has had enough?)
The CME speeded up the epiphanies, aha moments, understandings, and correlations so that the body could begin to recover. You may have experienced a major insight and then an incredible need for sleep. Those two CMEs came in a relatively short span of time.
CARPE DIEM: Speaking of time, today it's time to carpe diem in some way. Venus moves to the degree of "a bald headed man who has seized power," which brings a naturally "pushy" sort of energy. It can turn into hyper-dominance and hyper-masculinity rather quickly, with aggressive interactions and conflicts. What's happening is the WILL of each individual is naturally seeking expression, and in situations where power and control dynamics (anti-love) are operating, drama can ensue. People can grab for power or control.
This is seen most clearly with the petty power plays in workplaces. Anyone who has a very weak inner sense of self and has been given any sort of "authority" tends to act out under this energetic. We can respond to the situation or person with compassion (for they are deeply infected with the madness of the archons), but we won't let our guard down. We are free beings and not to be trodden upon.
REPAIR AND REFORM: The Sun moves to the degree of "telephone linemen at work installing new connections." This energy repairs any damage to communication within our relationships. It also brings new ideas, people, places, and things into our lives. We can really experiment with "bending time" with this energetic in play. Go back to any point in time that you want and view it from your wise owl perspective of today. How do you feel about the situation now? You can go back as far as you want, but the present can change the past, and also the future.
MASTERFUL MOON: The Black Moon moves to the 9th degree of Libra today and begins disseminating the energy of "three old masters hanging in a special room in an art gallery."
Recall that Venus stationed retrograde in July at the degree of "in a portrait, the best of a man's features and traits are idealized."
Now we see truth. The "masters" reveal the over-idealizations, the illusions. Their clarity and skill are impeccable, so we see what a true "picture" looks like. The over-idealized "picture" may even appear cartoonish now. It will be more and more difficult for anything or anyone standing on the outside of truth and love to hold together.
Reality is revealed through the art of the Sabian symbols, also, isn't it?
The Black Moon will bring us this energetic through November 14, and with it, the "three old masters" will bring darkness to light.
Today, we are seizing the day, integrating all that has happened and all that has been revealed to us by the Great Moon Mirror this month, and bringing ourselves back into balance.
(Note: I think it is a perfect day, given the energetics, to tell everyone who doesn't already know that wise owl Carolyn Barnes' book Return To Ease: Gently Reconnect With Your Body's Natural Mobility and Joy is now available! It's a gorgeous coffee table art book giving skills for self empowerment. How much better can it get? Your body and soul will thank you.)
