Reflections And Conceptions Of New Moon Eclipse 1/6/19 In Capricorn

January 6, 2019

The image and the thought for the Sabian symbol for 15 degrees Capricorn is , “ In a hospital, the children’s ward is filled with toys.” The Sabian symbols are channeled communications given to Marc Jones which are interpretations for each degree of the zodiac. They were received in 1925 through the intermediary of Elsie Wheeler, a clairvoyant woman.

I find the Sabian symbols useful as a way of using Astrology for the purpose of deepening the metaphor and reflecting on the influences of the movement of the planets through the zodiac

Within the Sabian thought forms there are interesting insights to reflect on that offer insights towards some kind of intuitive awareness of healing and an integration towards self realization.

On January 5th, 2019, just yesterday at the time of this writing, we have passed through the powerful energy of this New Moon Eclipse. It is an occurrence that is when the Moon stands between the Earth and the Sun. The Moon is at its darkest moment now as it begins the transition from a waning cycle to a waxing cycle towards brightness and fullness.

The New Moon is a beginning time and so it is a useful time to reflect on what you want to create and affirm for your life. With the New Moon conjunct the Sun in Capricorn it is a good time to solidify your standing with others out in the World, be it your community your job, your Nation and if need be the whole World. Capricorn is the symbol of the Mountain Goat who seeks to climb to the top of the Mountain. Capricorn seeks height so as to be visible, to be seen as a fine upstanding person. Responsibility, commitment and integrity are the gems of wisdom along with good solid grounding with one’s self in relationship to reality. These are some of the gifts and blessings of this taskmaster of a sign Capricorn and its ruler Saturn.

A strongly placed Saturn, the planet that rules Capricorn, and/or should you have planets in Capricorn in your chart, they shall imbue you with boulders and challenges of varying degrees that serves to bind you towards your destiny. There is something sweet and wonderful taking place amidst the “pain in the butt” nonstop layers of tasks and commitments and never ending cycles of the need to show up for it all. Strength, grace and endurance which adds beautifully to self esteem via the commitment to taking responsibility for one’s self.

It is useful to refer to the Sabian symbol for 15 degrees Capricorn since the symbol’s keynote pertains to “the responsibility of society to ensure the welfare and health of a new generation.” This indicates to me that this New Moon in Capricorn conjunct the Sun 15 degrees is echoing the call to be mindful of policies and actions that are harmful to the folks that are coming of age now. Along with reflecting on the children cruelly and barbarically separated from their parents for whom out of desperation chose to come to this country seeking asylum from danger. The response from the U.S. reflects the enactment of claims to socio-Political power as suggested by the 15 degree Sabian symbol as interpreted by Dane Rudhyar. Here is where the tender care, wit and skills are needed to neutralize this most disturbing and dangerous situation. This New Moon Eclipse is setting the tone for this year to get those children and babies reunited with their families into a safe comfortable environment. That is what the Sabian Symbol said to me in the image of a children’s hospital ward filled with toys.

The symbol also speaks to two major existential issues we are needing to confront and deal with now and that is Global Warming and the Economy. The symbol as interpreted by Dane Rudhyar where he states, “the sociocultural process must look to the future as well as to the past. It has created conditions which may harm the children who will carry forward its work, and must try to repair these negative conditions through love as well as through physical care.” He goes on to say, “In personal life, the individual should take great care of his fresh intuitions and his dreams of future growth. They are often fragile developments which the pressures of everyday life can easily distort or destroy.”

Dane Rudhyar speaks of this symbol as “the last stage of Scene Nineteen, which began with a powerful claim for socio-Political power”. He goes on to say that, “the exercise of such a power can indeed produce social conditions which endanger the healthy and spiritual unfoldment of a community, and-especially its children”. He then goes on to recommend, ” There is therefore constant need for TENDER CARE as well as skill to neutralize the destructive tensions of social living.”

Skill to neutralize the vast imbalances and serious crazy we are living through now. There is such a need right now for good clever wit and solid embodied people with integrity. We must focus, guide and support bringing about the trend of tender care while being utterly aware of the realities created by careless minds who are lacking skills and care for humanity. I would like to add the crisis and fight for a vibrant free press. It is our responsibility to make it be so. Capricorn and Saturn playing out at its best.

This is what I believe is possible to find, using the understanding that might be gleaned from time tested empiric knowledge. The wisdom of intuitive impressions received from many years of working with the symbols of planets, signs, aspects, transits, etc. in astrology.

I, myself along with many others seek to sense and understand how to interpret and learn from these cycles in terms of their effects on our lives. How to work with those energies in order to make understanding, integration and healing the trend. We, collectively experience the effects of the eternal cycling of major outer & inner planetary transiting activity. The subtle and sometimes not so subtle wake up calls triggering the “self instructors sharp and tender love”, beckoning our awakening and awareness.

The need for TENDER CARE as well as skills on how to go about messaging into the collective a consciousness that serves to neutralize the destructive tensions of social living.

When Dane Rudhyar wrote the above reflecting on the meaning of the Sabian symbol for 15 degrees Capricorn it was 1944, thereabout. It was at the beginning of World War Two. Hitler was in power and creating hell on earth among other barbaric shortsighted situations occurring. Not far removed to what is going on at this present time in the 21st Century. He tells us that 15 degrees Capricorn is the last stage of Scene Nineteen which began with a powerful claim for socio-political power. When I think of the barbaric unnecessary humanitarian crisis in Yemen or the children here in the U.S. suffering torture as they are recklessly torn away from their parents and trusted caregivers, being kept like criminals in cages. And let us remember the existential crisis of global warming we are actually in the midst of now along with the huge financial bubble waiting to burst due to greed, lack of emotional and spiritual development and an antiquated financial system that must be transformed to a dignified integrity that supports All. This is Saturn and Pluto both in Capricorn calling all humanity to have courage and heart as the system in its fragility quite possibly might fall apart. Calling to be replaced with relevant structures of operation and currency that enables humanity in all variations of evolution, consciousness and political affiliation to evolve.

The folk rock singer Melanie sings about the Earth and it’s inhabitants that, “it’s too soon to die”. And with Jupiter moving through its home sign in Sagittarius among other lovely aspects there is hope. There is help. There is a strong need for tender care. With Neptune in Pisces, Chiron late Pisces along with Uranus the planet of change and innovation going direct, albeit 28 degrees Aries however shortly beginning its journey through Taurus, seeking peace, sensuality, stability and beauty. These current placements suggest to me the ability to create and set up a fertile ground for the creation of the needed skills to allow movement forward towards a new level of understanding enhanced by the Piscean and Neptunian need to dissolve boundaries allowing compassion, understanding, mercy and forgiveness to unfold. The necessary healing to create sustainable living unfolds.

In harmony, grace and strength let us continue moving forward in peace.

Rhythmic Rituals Based On Reality

December 15, 2018

The Madonna nurturing the newborn, attuning to the instinctual needs of her baby and her own along with adapting to the necessities of the Present Moment.

While being attuned into a rhythmic set of daily rituals that becomes a consistent safe space. Both mother and child growing and learning so to embody the precious and necessary establishment of being.

So becoming individuated.

Finding father.

Or is it ” the self instructors sharp and tender love”?

No matter how it is experienced what I am seeking to describe above is the dynamic of the Full Moon in Cancer as the Sun begins its journey through Capricorn.

The Winter Solstice.

At this moment the fullness of the Moon in Cancer and the Sun in Capricorn.

The harmonizing Moon, the energy of our inner most being as we seek nourishment and nurturing through the silky veil of our intuitive depths illumined by the energy of the Moon. In direct opposition to the Sun in Capricorn. Seeking to achieve elevation in our lives, our stature, our communities. Liz Greene so articulately states that Saturn ruler of Capricorn, is “a symbol of the psychic process, natural to all human beings, by which an individual may utilize the experiences of pain, restriction and discipline as a means for greater consciousness and fulfillment.”

This time of year we heed the dynamic paradox of Cancer in opposition to Capricorn. The yin/yang of the Moon opposing the Sun within the darkest night and still darker days. It is a good thing to be motivated to respect, I hope with tender loving care the warmth and comfort of turning inward. Thus becoming the chrysalis for a while. Learning, healing and growing through ” the self instructors sharp and tender love”.

Little by little as the length of the days grow longer, the seeds of our embodied wholeness unfolds we emerge the wise and vivid butterfly.

As Winter does turn to Spring.

December Notes On The Winter Solstice

December 13, 2018

No matter how matter of factly I would like to be about December it never fails to be a month where certain aspects of life disappear. Making it a lonely place of solitude. Albeit a warming place of reintegration and self reclamation.

Life and daily connections seem to get suspended. Would it not be a meaningful metaphor to acknowledge that we are entering into the delivery room for the labor of the birth of the Sun? As the light of day gets shorter and the nights longer. Time to acknowledge that we are in the time of the Winter Solstice. The earth is making a shift in her axis. And so are we.

At this present moment I love all the joyful Sagittarius energy.

This is a good thing.

The buoyant optimistic hopeful 🎼tra-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la🎶 of Sagittarius, our Cosmic Santa, as is known to be some of the many meanings of Jupiter and Sagittarius.

Speaking from my own experience, in the past, the month of December would invariably be imbued with alone time, which I have happily and necessarily transformed into a self imposed retreat of healing and self reclamation.

It has become a good life affirming practice and ritual that has its own glowing light, perhaps metaphorically attuning to the glowing light of the eternal light symbolized by the Menorah of Jewish Lore, which is the background and heritage that I happened to have been born thru.

I also respect the man Jesus Christ who was a healing seeking man. It seems so, as it has been discovered by historians who tell us that he achieved enlightenment through the seeking journey of his life. The rest is history. I also respect Mohammed and the practice of Islam. However these are external deities, men of a patriarchal mind and dictate. For me it never made sense. And I never felt any truth or light in the way their beautiful teachings were interpreted. Rather I found vast misinterpretations being preached based on the insecure egos of those ” folks of the cloth”, as it were. ( I did have a crush on a Rabbi once.) Indeed I do respect and honor those who find comfort and meaning in their lives through monotheistic religions and practices.

I also support, honor and acknowledge that we are evolving in such a way that even though messy, terrible and frightening as it all-too often has been and currently is that we are still in the midst of birthing what I would like to affirm shall be a global society. A society where all can practice whatever religion or belief system they please that gives them comfort and peace.

And so it is in peace and harmony that we may all carry on. Moving forward in peace, health, prosperity, dignity and harmony..

Through many years of reflection about December and as I have moved through time, I have become aware of the tension and depressions of others around me that frequently concurs in December. Could it be the experience of one’s Soul calling the self back home towards the self?

Yes, it could be.

I believe it is the  deep inner calling of Soul calling us to connect with the light and truth of our own inner journey. It is our yearning for connection to the integrity of our own inner being and truth which calls out so strongly in December. The need for integrity which requires a certain solitude so that we are able to use the time to acknowledge where solid structures for a flowing prospering healthy beautiful life might be established or re-established as the case may be.

A time of endings and a time of new beginnings in December.

Thus a journey, a life that has taken a different path and has been for so many years pioneering a new healthy life affirming path is at last being found and established.

A new beginning.

The silent yet booming deep tones of Capricorn resound harmonious and dissonant all at once, so it seems. As the December season and holiday celebrations unfold, also a function of Capricorn and Saturn keeping ourselves connected to obligations and responsibilities. A sense of family, a sense of one’s roots.

But what if they have been tangled and mangled, depleted and undone via wars, strife, calamities and barbarically imposed political policies?

If good family, friends and relationships as well as career, finances, health and whatever else is not yet realized, then Saturn via Capricorn guides us inward towards a solitude that beckons us to find the light of our own inner being with which we can choose to surrender. There with compassion for ourselves and others we may receive the inner guidance of our budding self hood and the solace brought to us by the energy of Saturn who is leading us to the bones of solid life affirming structures and in some cases if it is the right time and other transits align Saturn brings us to our destiny.

The meaning of this December moment helps us to connect to ourselves and each other through the gratitude and acknowledgements of past accomplishments along with the releasing and letting go of past woes.

To celebrate the power and vitality of the present moment as we body forth into a new year.

May you move forward in time with courage, consistency and creativity as you are inspired to in these powerful times in health and prosperity!

Peace.

Movement Forward Inspired By Sagittarius New Moon

December 7, 2018

The moment of this dark moon as the Moon itself begins once again it’s cycle of increased light and presence is imbued with an energized link to well being as a sense of faith in one’s journey is sensed with the ebullient jovial Sagittarius flame.

Please be aware that this New Moon is colored with the journey of meeting the “demons at the gate”. Although the Jupiter Sagittarius shift lightens our Spirits and offers hope along with the nurturing Moon in Sagittarius and the Sun as well, do not be dismayed when projects and plans go awry or not as you might have hoped they would.

You are not alone.

The Sun, New Moon and Jupiter are forming angles of chagrin and vexation aka Squares to the planets Mars and Neptune which are conjoined in Pisces.   The square aspect asks us to find life affirming ways to be in relationship with adverse energies such as the difficult partnership formed by Mars and Neptune. Mars struggles with the mystical fog like energy of Pisces ruled by Neptune. Mars is the Warrior, daring where “Angels fear to tread”, instinctually fighting for something even if there is nothing to fight for at all. All to serve its sense of being, of aliveness. The Pisces energy is transmitting to Mars to find new ways to work with the feeling of anger. This of course serves to confuse Mars who instinctually uses anger as an organizing force but is now being asked, by the Pisces energy to find another way.

By the very same token could it be that these powerful yet difficult conjunctions and squares are the very thing that is asking of our Souls and Spirits to establish and reclaim a new way of managing anger.  Perhaps  in some instances serving through vexation as a way to become aware of what anger even feels like.

It also makes me think about the paradox constellated and made manifest by these aspects as reflected in the global political circumstances enacted at this very moment.   This suggests to me that there is an opportunity for healing and growth of some kind. Particularly since Mercury just out of retrograde and getting ready to move forward towards Sagittarius out of Scorpio is forming a Trine to Chiron, the maverick healer and a Trine to the North Node which I view as a point of karmic evolution. Some surrender, some transcendence of a nurturing stabilizing principle is at hand. The feminine Principle can join a place of respect, honor, dignity and equal importance with the Masculine Principle as so many women are about to be sworn in as Congresspeople in this country, the USA.

At this time there must be enough of us who understand that difficult energies can be transposed into actions that serve to heal and integrate the many paradoxical moments we find ourselves in. By holding with mindfulness the tensions of the two squaring energies and allowing them to speak to each other, only then can there be found resolution and even humor at our own circumstances.

There is much to learn at this moment for let us remember that Sagittarius is the sign of Higher Education, esoteric knowledge and adventure. This moment is asking us to bring to our lives that spirit of adventure along with reflection, reverence and patience as we continue to move forward through it all.

I had a teacher once who asked the class to become aware of how the World situations and conflicts reflected our own circumstances. Perhaps a bit of an abstract concept for many, but perhaps just for this brief moment in time by looking at the frustrations and tensions manifesting in our own lives, taking a deep breath in and out. Then reflect on all the different components. Try writing them down. Thus gaining some perspective on it all. Take a break. Then upon returning after feeling refreshed with a new frame of mind, become aware of where the relationship between differing points of the conflicts can exist together as you bring the lit comprehension of your mind and your intuitive heart to the matter.

Some understanding is usually born out of such a practice, and from there a possible solution or a hidden meaning to the situation emerges. Meaningful experience is also in the realm of Sagittarius. It is often through the connection of what meaning a circumstance contains which allows us to undergo its process with clarity and peace of mind. Eventually leading to valuable wisdom and a deeper knowing that would not have been found in any other way.

I believe this moment in time, astrologically is a fertile time for this kind of thinking and learning triggered by the New Moon in Sagittarius, conjunct the Sun and Jupiter forming a Square to Mars and Neptune in Pisces

. I hope these ideas and interpretations support productive and loving ways to move through this season of the darkening light as we shortly move through time towards the Solstice and the rebirth of the Sun.

Blessings of Peace and Harmony

Revitalization of Health ; Pluto Transiting Squares N-Mars

November 23, 2018

Trusting.

Present centering.

Transcendent surrender towards stabilizing right livelihood and balancing.

When money and career choices to be dealt with seem to be knocked down by health issues that requires resources attained through money in order to restore balance and a consistent good healthy diet and exercise.

Plutonian energy seems to have intervened. In the form of panic, fears, hypersensitivity and angry flares triggered by Pluto’s instinctually flavored fight or flight syndrome. Looking like consistent unrelenting confrontations, crazy imbalances and irrationalities that seemingly wont let up.

I now comprehend, gratefully gestalt and understand how Pluto has been taking over my good intentions and sabotaging my desires,wishes, fulfillment’s and motivation for quite some time.

Transiting Pluto in Capricorn in my eighth house currently squaring my Natal Mars in Aries while 4 of my N-planets and MC, N in Aquarius have progressed into Aries occupying my 11th house. Actually a good placement for achieving goals. And at this time while in close enough orb though not yet in direct opposition to my natal Jupiter & Uranus in Cancer, in my 2nd house by degree, Pluto in Capricorn in my eighth is opposing it.

N-Jupiter and N-Uranus both in Cancer @ 24 degrees in the second house. My experience currently is that an inherent sense of grace is no longer within me as I have known it to be there. Rather I have a very strong and clear sense of having to rely completely on myself, my devices, resources and efforts to create the stability and income I need. Gratefully, the Tarot cards indicate that I do have the power, strength and determination to do so,

The other challenge is blocked up irregular digestion and the debilitating pain in my right arm and shoulder due to not having the supplements and foods I need that will enable me to manage it.

I need to be taking in more money, so I can be earning more money!

That is my current conundrum.

This is good info in how it supports allowing me to understand and see how and why this is such a challenging, frightening and difficult moment.

Hence, the guidance offered through the tarot and astute tarot reader is that I must be careful to not let the fear and panic get a hold of me. So as to keep on focusing on my Astrology business, looking into singing at open mic situations and to open up to a social life, perhaps creating some kind of collaboration.

Structuring my office/studio time to consistently write on my blog and work on charts and other marketing tools in order to get my Astrology practice going one step at a time.

Thank-you.

Reflecting Transformational; hopeless despair into practical life affirming reality

October 29, 2018

I wonder who am I when my quest for my own sense of self has brought me to this moment of understanding the gestalt experience of this non performance of an expected action.

As I live in some kind of dream that I imagine would be more connected to the essence of who I am.

As an actress , singer, dancer I am held within the essence and energies of who I really am….my Soul in a natural exchange with others and back to me…giving and taking of large , steady consistent payments for services rendered etc.

As an Astrologer & Astrological Life Coach, I feel like a beggared charlatan with a bleak past, bleak future and barely, just barely holding on in this “trying to have hope, and hopefully getting it together to live to study, work and market myself kind of  cold stressful lonely brokered present. This has been going on for at least the past 15-20 years gone by now.

This must stop.

And it must stop here, now, today.   This very moment!

I affirm using this moment of despair, no money, troubles and a dirty apartment with too much laundry to do….as a moment of picking myself up by the bootstraps, dusting myself off and to start all over again.

Good girl! Good woman that I am! And quite grateful to be so!

All by myself?

Not liking that.

Seeking to change that!

Today I have 2 non paying sessions,(clients), one which require work….the other a sight read and talk.

I don’t want to be a beggared charlatan.

I want to find my way……

I shall work on my profile and work on my connections and my profile on LinkedIn and get to that Astrology Meetup on November 8th.

Get advertisements out!

Contact past clients.

Get Carole Simone her chart……

And become a prospering Astrologer & Astrological Life Coach.

A prospering and very ultra magnificent adept professional.

$$$$$$$

And there shall thus be acquired all the money and income that I need.

So be it!

And so must it be!

Reflections; Sun Moving Thru Scorpio

October 29, 2018

Something so life affirming, powerful and enjoyable when the sexy mysticism of sweet desire and seduction is a nuanced scent in the air.

Something so delicious, fun and enjoyable when the passions of Scorpio find their expression via flirtation. The flickering of secretive desires coming into fruition as only Scorpio requires.

This is the gift Scorpio offers to balance the depth and the dive into darkness as change and transformation is forced upon us.

Scorpio does not beckon, Scorpio just does its thing…..

So to enjoy the seductive stirrings of sexual desires as we smack, smooch & smolder away just as the Phoenix does as it makes the change.

Freeing itself from what it was fleeing itself from; flying up out of it’s own embers of its own metamorphosing fires.

The threefold journey of Scorpio, the Elegant Honesty of the Eagle and the Mystical Magic of the Eternal Soul as illumined by the enduring miracle of the flight of the Phoenix teaching those who are attuned.
