Sabian Symbol for the Lunar Month: "a mature woman reawakened to romance"
Sabian Symbol for the Solar-Lunar Year: "the music of the spheres"
This month's lunar theme of something awakening or coming to life inside of each of us continues in force this weekend.
The magical elements of love are in the air, asking us to open our hearts to our brothers and sisters worldwide, but also to open our hearts to ourselves. Our goal as wise owls is to hold the highest value for life, which we do well within the context of fellowship for others. But what about our own lives? Can we uphold the value of life if we have ourselves forgotten how to live, forgotten what makes us feel alive, forgotten how to be caring to ourselves? This weekend's energy helps us answer these kinds of questions and resolve these kinds of issues.
These types of questions and these kinds of issues (love of self and others, love for life) present themselves along the strong dynamic of the Sun making exact conjunction (meeting at the same place in the sky) with Mercury (which is retrograde). Exact conjunction is Saturday at 12:48 pm ET/4:48 pm UT). But, since energy moves in waves, it will be in effect all weekend to some extent.
The Sun will make conjunction with Mercury at 08' Gemini 58" - so the last couple of minutes of the Sabian symbol of "a quiver filled with arrows." Keep that quiver of love arrows from yesterday handy. Things may become quite pointed.
At the time of the exact conjunction, the Moon will be in opposition to the Chiron Point (location in the zodiac where the planet Chiron was discovered). When Chiron's energy is activated, pain is healed and things are learned. Chiron is the energy of The Wounded Healer and Teacher, but it does this at an extraordinary level. Chiron is the greatest healer and teacher. The energy is impactful and pointed. This manifests for us in energy to make a great change, change a major habit, and radically change our mindset. Things get better. Let's take full advantage.
There are two references to being aware of consequences within the Sabian symbols of Saturday's energetics.
And finally, in honor this weekend of the Earth's dissemination of the Sabian symbols of "a theatrical golden-haired goddess of opportunity" and "the lamp of physical enlightenment at the left temple" combined with Venus' dissemination of "guests reading in a library of a luxurious home," my choice for the amalgam is the featured painting of the cover of the London Philharmonic's "Kashmir: The Symphonic Led Zeppelin" by Jaz Coleman. My alternate title to this painting would be The Aeon (Gaia) Sophia, the Goddess of Wisdom, In Her Natural Element.
What is she saying to you this weekend? What is trying to reawaken or bring to life inside of you? Go outside, immerse in the beauty of nature, and open your heart. She will certainly show you.
