Sabian Symbol for the Lunar Month: "winter frost in the woods"
Sabian Symbol for the Solar-Lunar Year: "the music of the spheres"
Sunspot 2371 has erupted again. Early this morning (4:16 am ET/8:16 am UT) an M7.9-class solar flare with Earth-directed coronal mass ejection was released. The Moon was located at 14 Libra, disseminating the energy of "in the heat of the noon, a man takes a siesta." This symbol signifies a gaining or gathering of strength to complete something.
But the story of what the Sun (Sabaoth in the Gnostic), the Earth (Sophia in the Gnostic), and the magnetic fields and polarities of the Earth (Thelete in recovered wisdom) are doing is a much bigger story. It is the story of how humanity, in collaboration with divine forces, frees itself from the bondage over its mind. More to come on this larger story.
For now, the influx of solar energies is fuel for our brains, expanding our understandings and perceptions. Intense light brings intense clarity. Clarity brings wisdom. Wisdom brings freedom.
The symbol of the man taking a noon siesta tells us to "chill out," adding to the lunar month's theme of "winter frost in the woods." It is a time for inner stillness and cold determination to persevere. So as all sorts of intense things happen as the CME fully loads in, we prepare to receive an "upgrade" in brain and processing power. The best way to handle this is to go with the flow and temper reactions.
With the Moon making opposition with Uranus at 6:20 pm ET/10:20 pm UT this evening, the skills of a wise old owl may be need. One of those skills is knowing that anything that happens under a Uranus transit is meant to put us on our proper course in life -- the highest and best expression and experience of our souls. Things happen abruptly (accidents, surprises, events) under dynamic of the Moon and Uranus, naturally triggering reactions. Take special care when driving today. Keep a slower or steadier pace in all things. Take breaks - it will help if you need to be hyper-productive right now. Meditate. Turn your face to the Sun if it is shining where you are today. And if it's not, just look up; it's there beyond the clouds, radiating love.
And since I now seem to be (bizarrely) prone to quote lyrics from '80s music, here's a fitting one from Van Halen:
It's your tomorrow
C'mon, it's everything
Catch a magic moment
Do it right here and now
It means everything.
