Sabian Symbol for the Lunar Month: "winter frost in the woods"
Sabian Symbol for the Solar-Lunar Year: "the music of the spheres"
The "winter frost in the woods" is beginning to melt rapidly, courtesy of the Sun and Uranus still in close square today, but also due to the fires of Mars moving into opposition with Pluto.
How is all of this treating you?
Depending on how much "frost" has built up, the rapid thaw could turn into a flash flood of emotions as we advance to the New Moon in Cancer on Wednesday. The next lunar month transports us to an entirely different climate altogether, as the Sabian symbol for the New Moon is "a woman and two men castaways on an island in the South Seas." More on this in the monthly New Moon audio recording which is on its way.
Mars and Pluto engage our will. Impetus, initiative, and a strong desire to act comes with this. Coupled with the Sun and Uranus still discharging the surprising, catalytic, electrical, changeable, sudden energy, there is very high potential for explosive interactions, outbursts, road rage, accidents, and the like. You know the drill.
But, a much better way to channel ALL of the energetics that are in play (and there are others, too lengthy for this report) is through the energetic frequency of Venus today: "a mermaid emerges from the ocean ready for rebirth in human form." Focus the energy on the rebirth or emergence of a useful reality.
I would offer that whatever we do between now and the New Moon on Wednesday is what transports us to the place on the mental and emotional map we will inhabit over the next lunar month.
Wisdom, let us attend.
