From Andrew: Laura outlined the Sabian Symbols for the lunar phases for the next year in her audio last March.
June 23, 2017 the New Moon in Cancer “An artic explorer leads a reindeer thru Icy canyons.” Treacherous, tells us to tread lightly, look ahead.
I have outlined the sabian symbols over the last 4 days. I (Andrew) have been through some personal loss as a child we have cared for since she left the hospital after 6 weeks of weaning from the drugs she was born with in her system has left our care to return with her birth father. It is a time both joyous for the birth family, yet darker than anyone can imagine for us, as we have lost a child.
Note on Void of Course: It is believed that anything undertaken when the Moon is void-of-course will bring no result. But there is also another, positive facet of the void-of-course Moon: if something risky or difficult is undertaken, something where other people can create a problem or interrupt you, this time seems to be beneficial, because those who might create a problem can do nothing against you.
This week, Mars will station direct on June 29th. It has been retrograde since April 17th.
The canoe images in the earth degrees in Capricorn always cause me to pause. It reminds me of Longfellow’s The Song of Haiwatha, which I made a study of in college. But it actually carries a stronger memory from my childhood – specifically from Bugs Bunny, who had recited parts of the epic poem. Both, unfortunately helped to continue the image of the Native Americans as “gentle savages” or maybe not so gentle. But, like any graphic images, have stayed with me for years. For the Canoe symbols:
The People entering the canoe shows journeying with other. Each brings with them their own stories and their own baggage. But they are embarking on a journey to accomplish something together. Add to it the Indian imagery shows the need to remain calm while rowing in the direction you need to go. And to be wary of those trying to upset it. Where are you on this journey?
