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"
Angels are among us today, as the Sun is discharging the energy of the Sabian symbol "an angel carrying a harp" and Mars completes the discharge of "a man in deep gloom, unnoticed, angels come to his help."
"Lofty" energy is at hand as Venus moves into Sagittarius. The first degree of Sagittarius is "retired army veterans gather to reawaken old memories." Reunion is the key element with this energy: reunion with people and reunion with memories. The past is "reawakened." We are more inclined to look back or go back over things to try and recapture emotions or understand what happened, now from a different (higher or more lofty) perspective. We tend to analyze events so that we can learn from them and apply that understanding now, in the present. Sagittarius energy is intimately concerned with understanding and finding meaning in things, and discerning the truth of matters. It can become quite a quest -- a never-ending one even -- to find "the ideal."
Saturn has a different idea today, however. Saturn moves to the 12th degree of Sagittarius at 11:39 am ET/4:39 pm UT and the energetic signature of "a flag that turns into an eagle that crows." Saturn wants us to come to a resolution and declare ourselves. A flag is a symbol of identity and loyalty. An eagle is a symbol of vision and leadership. Crowing is declaring. So the wisdom of this Sabian symbol teaches us that, at some point, we have to come to a declaration.
What do you declare as meaningful, worthy, and valuable?
The thoughts and emotions that come with discerning this may enact the "deep gloom" element of Mars' current energy. Unseen assistance and guidance is available to us. We can turn our troubles over to a higher power if they become too much for us. Peace and harmony can return, as the "angel carrying a harp" symbol tells us. Playing or listening to music will be very beneficial today, and will mutate the flow of emotions.
In fact, we have special assistance with things that are usually hard to grasp, understand, or catch. The Earth is located at the degree of "a small, naked girl bends over a pond trying to catch a fish." The illusory or abstract fascinates us. We want to reach out and grab hold of something that has eluded or perplexed us. The limits of our perspective and perception expand so that we may gain clarity.
Today's quest for meaning and understanding is enhanced by Mercury at the degree of "a woman reading tea leaves." The Disseminating Moon phase is the time of the lunar cycle when we receive messages and information that we need. The energy provides information for enhancing the future by getting to the bottom of something. The status and/or destiny of things is revealed when this symbol is activated.
By day's end, if all goes according to plan, we should have a better understanding of something or some things, and can come to a "declaration" of sorts.
We will remember, throughout the day, that angels are among us.
