Sabian Symbol for the Lunar Month: "winter frost in the woods"
Sabian Symbol for the Solar-Lunar Year: "the music of the spheres"
A fast and intense solar storm is underway with a "full halo" (Earth-facing) coronal mass ejection from an M2.6-class flare. The coronal mass was ejected Saturday, June 20 at 10:34 pm ET/ Sunday, June 21 at 2:34 am UT. The full intensity of the CME arrives today. Communications may be somewhat disrupted, as the storm may affect satellites and radio transmissions.
The CME occurred when the Moon was located at 22 Leo 45 and the Sabian symbol of 23 Leo: "a bareback rider in a circus displays her dangerous skill." The symbol images mastery or skill at maneuvering energies and instincts.
Our instincts, which are intimately tied to our shadow sides, are already on heightened alert today with the Moon moving through Virgo, along with the Black Moon. The exact meet-up of the Moon and the Black Moon is tomorrow, Tuesday, June 23 around 11:30 am ET/3:30 pm UT.
When the Moon enters the sign that the Black Moon is in, shadow sides are projected. Our core fears are triggered. Right now, those most affected by this are those with the Sun or Black Moon in Virgo or Pisces.
Add into the mix that we are under "double Crescent" energies since we are in the Crescent Moon phase of the second month that is like a month-long Crescent Moon phase. We are doubly-challenged to preserve and protect what is important and meaningful to us under this energetic. The Crescent Moon phase is in effect until early Wednesday, requiring exceptional perseverance on our part.
The intense solar storm is amplifying the energetics that are in effect based on the position of the planets today. Today, the Sun is disseminating the energy of "a man on a magic carpet observes vast vistas below him." This implies a momentary stop to take in the scene or expand our level of awareness. We get a better view of the future. This energy can also disconnect people, places and things, especially disconnect them from reality. Since it's a "Black Moon Day," Black Moon Fever can become rampant, with people acting from their most fearful side. We are aware of this potential today.
The Earth is located at the degree of "three stained-glass windows in a Gothic church, one damaged by war." This energy is usually experienced as a bombardment on love. Carelessness with feelings often ensues. In many cases, we feel as if we are under attack by something. Longtime readers know that this nebulous "something" was identified long ago by the Gnostics, who warned us of the danger of the Archons.
The Gnostics also told us our Sun, the being named Sabaoth, is an ally of humanity and the Earth. Sabaoth's message with the CME is for us to be like the bareback rider in this circus of reality we find ourselves in and engage our skills of evading danger. We can somersault over issues and see beyond them.
No matter how far above things we have to catapult, we always land with solid footing on the Earth. Today we will remember what grounds us when we need to find ground - nature.
