Astro-logical Forecast for Tuesday & Wednesday 10/11-12/2011: Full Moon in Aries

We are still moving full speed ahead with Moon in the pioneering, inspirational, faith in miracles sign of Aries, the battering Ram. Said Moon waxes full in one minute as I type this, at 10:05PM ET. Full Moons illuminate and clarify the issues set forth during the New Moon two weeks before. And this New Moon cycle suggested a quickening — possibly breathtaking pace, infused by oxygen finally reaching dormant embers waiting for a spark. With that being said, I’ve re-posted the forecast for the New Moon, all about relationship, belonging, campfires and “Kumbaya”. Well? Has that been in the news or what?  How have themes of belonging manifested in your own personal world? And what illumination does the Full Moon suggest?

More on the Full Moon, but first, tomorrow’s forecast, for those who just can’t wait. Moon continues its hectic pace in Aries all day. Note your dreams upon waking, as nebulous Neptune making contact with Mercury (mind, communication), suggests inspiration to carry you through the day. This softer touch may come in handy as you advance or must respond to whatever issue of gravitas lands in your lap between now and Thursday night, suggested by serious Saturn’s annual meet-up with the Sun (life force).  Moon goes void at  8:08PM ET for and hour and a half. Break time! Then it moves into tactile Taurus, suggesting a chance to eat, drink and get a massage — whatever sensual things make you feel secure and prepare you for the organizing and consolidating to be done on Thursday.

Back to the Full Moon.  I look first to the Sabian Symbols, as interpreted by Blain Bovee. If you’re a serious fan of astrology, just get his book right now on Amazon — you will have a field day reading about every degree of every planet and point in your horoscope. Dane Rudhyar and Marc Edmund Jones have books on the Sabian Symbols, but Bovee’s is so much more accessible in these modern times

For the Moon at 19 Aries opposing the Sun at 19 Libra we find the symbols of “a magic carpet” opposing “a gang of robbers in hiding”. Oooh, this is just so juicy. “A magic carpet” is empowered by something outside conventional norms, transcending the Earth. Rising above it. What an interesting perspective you can get by introducing a little levity into your life.

“A gang of robbers in hiding”…suggesting a group consciousness with a unique code of honor, working undercover — cloaked, perhaps — as a necessary protection. There are no clearly visible leaders in Occupy Wall Street, the story that has dominated headlines as its ethos spreads to cities across the United States and even London (on Saturday). Isn’t that interesting? Here’s how those gathered on Wall Street are getting things done

Well, fine, you say — how do I apply these symbols to the practical reality of my life? Bovee suggests “a mind to the challenge of maintaining integrity within a compromising social milieu; the right use of cover; creative alternatives to the paths of convention. Think of magic as the wisdom to know when to stand above the fray; to transcend situations that could lead to bereavement; to ascertain the right moment to touch down. Watch for helpers in hiding ready to emerge when help is needed; escapism; waiting on the sidelines until one’s influence can be effective.” In your quest for belonging (the New Moon agenda, re-posted below), how have the issues suggested by the Full Moon come into play? Consider this, as you consider buying Blain Bovee’s bodacious book : )

Astro-logical Forecast for Wednesday 12/8/2010: Sabian Symbols, Julian Assange

Thrilling news in the astrological community yesterday: a reliable source revealed the allegedly accurate birth time of Julian Assange, which gives him a Ascendant of 18 Scorpio, to go along with his Scorpio Moon. I thought this would be a perfect case to talk a bit more about Sabian Symbols, since readers of this forecast may have noticed that I mention them at every New and Full Moon, and you might be wondering what they are.

The Sabian Symbols were divined in 1925 by astrologer Marc Edmund Jones and Elsie Wheeler, a medium.  One day in San Diego, the story goes, Jones held up a note card for each of the 360 degrees of the zodiac (the zodiac is a circle of 12 signs of 30 degrees each = 360 degrees). Wheeler channeled a picture — a symbol for each degree of the zodiac, et voila — yet another level of depth in the language of astrology emerged. Because a picture is worth a thousand words, n’est-ce pas?

OK, so now what. Well, what might the Sabian Symbol for 18 Scorpio tell us about Julian Assange and how he connects to the world and how the world perceives him?  The picture is “a wood rich in autumn coloring”. For more, we turn again to Blain Bovee’s really groovy book, Sabian Symbols & Astrological Analysis: “…the colors are rich and there is a special air about the season…autumn leaves also announce an impending time with the trees will be stripped bare, fully exposed….watch of enhancement skills; a knack for showing something or someone up for who or what they really are. Consider a nose for story; a tell-all nature; expose; the bare facts; an attitude of “que sera, sera”.

Isn’t that interesting? Aren’t you curious about what the Sabian Symbols might suggest in your horoscope? (the Sabian Symbol for my Sun at 9 Aries is “a crystal gazer” — big surprise there, huh?). Any questions about Sabian Symbols, drop me a line — I’m happy to clarify!

As for the daily forecast: Moon is still in Capricorn. Make it happen! You’ve got until 8:07PM NY time before the Moon goes void of course for the evening, giving you a chance to rest. A supportive connection between loving Venus and transformational Pluto can help you make a persuasive case for your bright idea — put it out there! It could lead to some constructive change. It can also make a night with your sweetie magically delicious.
