Sabian Symbol for the Solar-Lunar Month: "in winter, people cutting ice from a frozen pond for use in summer"
Sabian Symbol for the Solar-Lunar Year: "the music of the spheres"
Our "square dance " party yesterday (see yesterday's post) included fireworks, as the Sun released an M1.8-class flare with partially Earth-directed CME at 7:45 am ET/12:45 pm UT when the Moon was located at 15 Leo and the Sabian symbol "a pageant moving along a street packed with people." This energetic signature is related to celebrations, achievements, and demonstrations/acts of love and joy. It is an energy for sharing. The Sun celebrates the historic times with us. and indicates that we continue to watch, understanding that the Time of Shift, the Time of Renaissance has begun.
Yesterday's energetics were already strong with the square between Mercury and Mars beginning, so angry and aggressive actions and communications were intensified by the super-solar activity. Anger and aggression usually supersede the higher octave of taking action and innovative thinking when a square between Mercury and Mars are involved. It's impulsive. And it can be quite draining.
The square between Mercury and Mars continues through January 1, and other important things will be happening in the heavens during that time, especially today and tomorrow. Here are the headlines for today:
CIRCLES AND LOOPS: At 8:46 am ET/1:46 pm UT, the Black Moon moves to 15 Libra and the symbol of "circular paths." Pluto will be strongly activating the Black Moon today and tomorrow. Pluto and the Black Moon are both "underworld energies of transformation and rebirth." When together, relationships are in focus. Relationships break apart or they take a leap forward. These two are interested in true love and commitment. (They also decimate artifice and power and control systems.)
When the "circular paths" dynamic is activated, people, places, and things from the past return. Old beliefs and feelings resurface for review. The wisdom with this symbol is to learn from the past. We can do things the same old way or we can do them a different way -- it's up to us. It does no good to "beat" ourselves up. Instead, attend to the wisdom.
The Moon will square Venus at 12:37 pm ET/5:37 pm UT. Venus is at the last degree of Scorpio today ("children in Halloween costumes indulging in various pranks"), so we are careful to not fall for tricks. If something comes back around today, take a good, hard look at it before committing.
DOUBLE DISSEMINATING: In the natural cosmic cycles and rhythms, the Sun is in a "Disseminating phase" this lunar month. This is the second of two lunar months that are "Disseminating," and we are in the Disseminating phase of the Moon (so the energy is doubly-Disseminating-ish). The Disseminating phase is characterized by communication, sharing, feedback, progress, fine-tuning, and networking. The outer world gives us clues, messages, information, and input through conversations with others, overheard conversations, background "noise" (like music or something on tell-a-lie-vision - television), something we read, things we are drawn toward, and synchronicities). The universe speaks to us through others and other things during Disseminating cycles.
This is enhanced today by the Sun disseminating the energy of "birds in a house singing happily" and Mercury at "a large aviary." The "chatter" may become a bit overwhelming. If so, "fly" off from the aviary and take refuge at the inner place of calm, like a wise owl in a tree, peering out and observing.
ON PARADE: Yesterday's CME involved the energy of a pageant, and today the Earth is discharging the energy of "a group of rabbits dressed in clothes and on parade." What is being displayed today? What is the spectacle? Sometimes things are not quite as they seem when this Sabian symbol is in effect. It affords pretense. However, it also affords emulation, so we can radiate a feeling of celebration. This symbol can also involve putting on a brave front.
UNSEEN ASSISTANCE: Mars is disseminating the energy of "a man in deep gloom - unnoticed, angels come to his help." Putting up a brave front can be lonely. This time of year (the holidays) can feel more lonely. Burdens can pile up. Feelings can become compounded. Since Mars energizes, feelings of deep gloom, disappointment, and loss may be energized in kind. The symbol tells us that we have assistance; we just don't see it. We can try to feel it though, when we know it is there. It is always there. Sometimes we need to know this more than others, and this is one of those times.
Tomorrow, Venus will enter Sagittarius, Saturn will move to 12th degree of Sagittarius, and Pluto will move to 16 Capricorn, so the energy will change up rather radically. Stay tuned for that.
We remember that this lunar month directs us to prepare and look forward with the theme of cutting ice in winter to use in summer. We aren't lost on a circular path of the past; we are chipping away at the sculpture of the future. Eyes forward.
