Third Quarter Moon Phase: revise, realign

Moon in Sagittarius

Aspect of the Aeon Sophia (Wisdom): all ten Wisdom Goddesses

Aspect of the Aeon Thelete (Will): Seth, God of the North

Skill: open to opportunities

True Alignments:  identity, originality, tactical or strategic, care/caution, integrity, able to organize, signposts, synchronicity, aiming for peace, blessings, messages from the animal kingdom (Ted Andrews' book Animal Speak is recommended for reference)

Catalysts for Change:  shooting the messenger, uncompromising, bullying, missing out, potential for threats and aggression, shadow sides coming out (fears projected onto others), isolated, overly self sacrificing, fears about safety

Sabian Symbol for the Solar-Lunar Month: "a flag is seen turning into an eagle"

Sabian Symbol for the Solar-Lunar Year: "the magic carpet of Oriental imagery"

As the Third Quarter phase continues, heights of revision, reassessment, and realignment of things continues.

The energetics are fairly straightforward today:

1 - OPPORTUNITIES / MISSED OPPORTUNITIES - The Sun is discharging 02 Pisces, "a squirrel hiding from hunters."  This energetic tends to empower others or give "threatening" things or bullies more power than they truly have.  In response, the desire to withdraw or hide can be quite intensive.  This leads to missed opportunities for growth, expression, and experience.  However, when the "squirrel" understands that it is ingenious, adaptive, prepared, skilled, and acrobatic, it is hard to catch.  Think about how many contraptions we humans have engineered to keep squirrels out of birdfeeders. 

The wisdom of 02 Pisces is that there is nothing to fear but fear itself.  Most likely, the places and spaces in which we find ourselves are opportunities for expression.  It does not have a chance to do so if it is isolated or shut down...

Third Quarter Moon Phase: revise, realign

Moon in Scorpio/Sagittarius (1:53 pm ET/6:53 pm UT)

Aspect of the Aeon Sophia (Wisdom): all ten Wisdom Goddesses

Aspect of the Aeon Thelete (Will): Seth, God of the North

Skill:  display or watch what is being displayed

True Alignments:  making the best of what is around, clarity, getting something out there for others, needs met, loosening up, coming to terms, appreciation, like minded, reunions

Catalysts for Change:  narcissism, revealing something too soon, denial, greedy, swindling, misinterpreting, ageism and reverse ageism, overly insulated for protection, faking, disapproval

The Sun has moved into Pisces, and we have moved into the Third Quarter phase of this lunar month. 

Third Quarter phases are the time when we take responsibility, revise, and realign.  It is a time of completion of what was "seeded" or "intended" back at the New Moon phase.  Some things are carried forward for development; some things conclude.  

Effectively, we are in "quadruple" Third Quarter energy because this is the second lunar month that is like a month-long Third Quarter phase (2 Third Quarter lunar months + 2 Third Quarter lunar phases = 4 times the amount of energy).

Essentially, things that began at the new solar-lunar year on April 7, 2016, with the New Moon in Aries, seek closure or seek new evolution.  This is the time of completing.

In the natural cycles, of time, next month is the time for releasing and preparing (clearing) the field for the new (the new solar-lunar year begins March 27).  Next month, the Pisces cycle which begins on February 27, is going to be an exceptionally active. 

So the more headway we can make with anything now, the more we can revise and realign, the better.

Fortunately, we have Uranus discharging "the gate to the garden of all fulfilled desires."  Uranus realigns us no matter what.  Accepting and adjusting to changes, instead of struggling against them, is the best advice with Uranus.  Uranus always makes things better, even though it may take some time to see that the changes actually were for the better.  Basically, follow along with where Uranus is leading you; follow your heart's desires.

Continuing yesterday's discussion of Saturn discharging the degree of the Galactic Center, 27 Sagittarius and "the sculptor's vision is taking form," the last time Saturn was discharging this degree was in 1988: January 5-14; July 24 - August 21 (when Saturn was retrograde); and September 9 - October 6...

Disseminating Moon Phase:  share, communicate

Moon in Scorpio

Aspect of the Aeon Sophia (Wisdom): all ten Wisdom Goddesses

Aspect of the Aeon Thelete (Will): Seth, God of the North

Skill: interpret

True Alignments:  looking at or doing something a different way, guardianship and protection, things coming to light or disclosed, assuring another or oneself, connection with ancestors, projecting one's ideas into something real, loyalty, dreamy states of mind or lower energy states that increase intuition/creativity

Catalysts for Change:  concealing, saying things before thinking, manipulating information, bossy, refusal to think outside traditional or accepted theories, overly suspicious, jealousy, "gaming" or "playing" others, unable to let down guard when appropriate and safe, loss of belief/meaning

Sabian Symbol for the Solar-Lunar Month: "a flag is seen turning into an eagle"

Sabian Symbol for the Solar-Lunar Year: "the magic carpet of Oriental imagery"

A momentous thing begins today, one that happens only every 30 years:  Saturn will begin conjunction with the Galactic Center.

In ancient Gnostic terms, the archons come into full exposure with the Pleroma (home of the aeons).  Time to face the music.

This begins today, continues through March 6, is revisited between May 9 and May 25, and then one last time between November 15 and 24.

The degree of the Galactic Center is 27 Sagittarius and the Sabian symbol of "the sculptor's vision is taking form."

Pause for a moment and take in the symbol.  What do you see, feel, and think?

The ancient Gnostics identified the center of the galaxy as our "spiritual home in the galaxy" - the conduit or portal or gate to God/Source/Great Spirit/Creator...

Disseminating Moon Phase:  revise, realign

Moon in Scorpio

Aspect of the Aeon Sophia (Wisdom): all ten Wisdom Goddesses with Shodashi, Goddess of Beauty and Goddess Who Fulfills the Highest and Best taking point

Aspect of the Aeon Thelete (Will):  Seth, God of the North

Skill: use your myriad of skills

True Alignments:  making sense, contentment, tuned in, self secure, ability to adjust, slow and steady wins the day, coming out, faith, acceptance of a certain level of risk or uncertainty

Catalysts for Change:  commitment issues, restriction (especially of expression), feeling blocked, difficulty adapting, being a wallflower, naive, deconstruction, ignoring intuition, unreal, unfocused

Sabian Symbol for the Solar-Lunar Month:  "a flag is seen turning into an eagle"

Sabian Symbol for the Solar-Lunar Year: "the magic carpet ride of Oriental imagery"

Every year around this time, the Sun and Earth align, in force, to induce one thing: EMERGENCE.

In astrology, the Sun and Earth are always opposite of each other.  Today, the Sun is discharging29 Aquarius, "a butterfly EMERGING from a chrysalis," and the Earth is discharging 29 Leo, "a mermaid EMERGES from the ocean ready for rebirth in human form."

When Elsie Wheeler channeled the Sabian symbols to Marc Jones in 1925, she did not know which degree of the zodiac she was seeing.  It was a "blind report," so to speak.  The fact that these opposite degrees, this polarity out of all of 360 degrees, specifically state forms of the word EMERGE is highly relevant.

Today, all roads lead to EMERGENCE.  What is emerging for you, personally?

Disseminating Moon Phase:  share, communicate

Moon in Libra

Aspect of the Aeon Sophia (Wisdom): all ten Mahavidyas

Aspect of the Aeon Thelete (Will): Seth, God of the North

Skill:  take measure

True Alignments:  useful, like minded, calibration, increased empathy (empaths take note and take measures), choosing wisely, signs from the bird kingdom, seeing clearly or seeing what was missed, new way to relate

Catalysts for Change:  fear of change, throwing the baby out with the bathwater, feelings of guilt, overwhelmed by options or choices or number of voices, feeling immobilized, dull, underestimating self

Sabian Symbol for the Solar-Lunar Month: "a flag is seen turning into an eagle"

Sabian Symbol for the Solar-Lunar Year: "the magic carpet of Oriental imagery"

Today, the Moon tips off the Jupiter-Uranus opposition, making for quite a magic carpet ride!

Uranus brings lightning fast changes, and Jupiter brings expansion.  In collaboration, we get big, fast change.  The Moon amplifies this.

To gain more specific application, we look to the degrees of the planet's location and the correlating Sabian symbol (energetic frequency/theme). 

Uranus is discharging "the gate to the garden of all fulfilled desires," which wants us to be happier.  It wants us to get real with ourselves and discover what we value.  This symbol involves choices and declarations.  We are brought to the gate, but we have to open it or knock.  It will stay closed unless we do something.  What wisdom does this symbol hold for you right now?

Jupiter is located at "the third wing on the left side of a butterfly," which has been trying to bring things into better balance.  What has been trying to come into better balance for you? 

At 12:18 pm ET/05:18 pm UT, Jupiter will move to 23 Libra, "the rooster's voice heralds the rising Sun with exuberant tones."  Again, we have declarations, intentions, statements.  Jupiter is retrograde right now, going back to sweep clean, refresh, and make better.  What is being swept clean or being reshown to you?

The "gate" and the "rising Sun" are much the same, would you say?  Both have something in store.  Both have promise.

Let's look at the other planets and the ways they are contributing to the Jupiter-Uranus Palooza today...

Aspect of the Aeon Thelete (Will): Seth, God of the North

Skill:  adapt

True Alignments:  transition, natural responses, inner and outer beauty, attuned, gradual, return to ancient sources, adjusting to outer influences

Sabian Symbol for the Solar-Lunar Month: "a flag is seen turning into an eagle"

Sabian Symbol for the Solar-Lunar Year: "the magic carpet of Oriental imagery"

Today, our magic carpet ride for this astrological year glides on "ribbons of time." The day takes us into new territory.

Ribbons, spirals, coils, streams, rays, and vines are painted within the Sabian symbols in effect today.  Underlying all of these is time.  Time and timelines (things that are happening in our lives and in the world) are changing. 

This will unfold over the next two days, as the Moon opposes Venus, Mars, and Uranus in Aries and conjuncts Jupiter is Pisces...

Full Moon Phase: clarity, understanding

Moon in Virgo - Libra 03:43 pm ET/08:43 pm UT

Aspect of the Aeon Sophia (Wisdom): all ten Wisdom Goddesses

Aspect of the Aeon Thelete (Will): Seth, God of the North

Skill:  take measure; choose wisely

True Alignments:  reassuring self or others, solving, gauging, on track, nipping something before it gets out of control, worthiness, attunement, release from stress, Divine inspiration and understanding, individuality, ability to adapt

Catalysts for Change:  frustration, the distress of over-analysis (go outside for a while), selfish, attempts to manipulate markets, loss of support, reversals, testing others, off track, out of control, insincerity, outbursts or tantrums, isolation, hard to identify feelings (this may be better when the Sun goes down)

Sabian Symbol for the Solar-Lunar Month: "a flag is seen turning into an eagle"

Sabian Symbol for the Solar-Lunar Year: "the magic carpet of Oriental imagery"

The last day of the Full Moon phase (with an eclipse) is chocked full of goings on, not least of which is the Black Moon's exit from Scorpio at 07:32 pm ET/00:32 am UT.

When the Sun rises again, it will do so with the Black Moon in Sagittarius beginning its nine month journey of rebirth with those with the Sun, Chiron, or Black Moon in Gemini or Sagittarius.

AT THE EXACT SAME MINUTE as the Black Moon's entry into Sagittarius, Chiron will change degrees and move to 24 Pisces.  This tells us that the Black Moon's entire transit through Sag will also carry the imprint of Chiron (wounding, healing, and teaching) with the energetic of 24 Pisces, "an inhabited island."  The specific themes of ADAPTING, GETTING ALONG, WORKING TOGETHER, COOPERATION, AND SEEING THE VALUE OF EACH will follow the Black Moon through Sagittarius. 

This is quite a blessing because the Black Moon transiting the Gemini-Sagittarius polarity struggles with issues of rejection and meaninglessness, so this will be a mighty big helper.  Chiron and the Black Moon work well together because they both want healing and integration of what is unhealed and unintegrated.  This will help great divides in our world to resolve over the next nine months...
