Here’s my Daily Rave. It IS a bit of a rave and unscripted… I don’t particularly think about what I’m going to say, I just start – so, please excuse some of it. If it was crafted, I would script and edit it – but, it’s not supposed to be like that – it’s just a bit of a rave
I hope you enjoy it! Feel free to leave a comment…
Jupiter is retrograde on Leo 13: AN OLD SEA CAPTAIN ROCKING ON THE PORCH OF HIS COTTAGE
- Jupiter goes direct in about two week’s time on this degree. We have Jupiter on the ‘taking time out to contemplate’ degree. This can be a time for writing one’s stories, for writing your memoirs. This can be a useful time to plan strategies and get things in a row, neatened up and tidied for the forward thrust that is coming in a few week’s time.
This Symbol shows the need for times of quiet reflection, to look back at past experiences, especially those times that may have seemed threatening or exhausting in some way. Take some time for a little solitude and contemplate the overall picture of your life. You may want to take time out to read, to go over past memories, indeed to write your memoirs. When back into the business of life you will be refreshed and have a better idea of how you fit in and what you want to achieve. Having said that, this Symbol can sometimes indicate wanting to retire and withdraw from life too much so that it interferes with the ability to make a living or feel like contributing to society.
Retreating to one’s inner self and reflecting. Quiet confidence in conquering life’s storms and come out wiser. Observing life from afar. Rocking chairs, cottages and verandahs.
The Caution: Ignoring what is possible now in favor of memories. Inability to get going. Being lazy and immobile. Being a lounge-lizard. Wanting others to look after you.
Mars is on Aries 27: THROUGH IMAGINATION, A LOST OPPORTUNITY IS REGAINED
This Symbol shows the talent or the ability to be able to use inner creative energy to revitalize ideas or opportunities that seemed to be lost. Whatever it is that you need to do, believe that it is possible and create an image in your mind and you will most likely succeed at gaining it or recovering it. Always take heart; there is energy here to recapture things that seemed to be lost. Visualizing whatyou want, allowing time and watching for it to manifest can bring astounding results. Sometimes, however, the “lost opportunities regained” are in a different form than we had first imagined.
Creative imagination and visualization. Hope renewed. Second chances. Last minute reprieves. Being forgiven or pardoned. Imagineering. Making up for losses.
The Caution: Relying on self pity which denies using the imagination to recover situations. Not noticing the solutions to problems. Going over and over lost opportunities.
The Sun is on Aries 6: A SQUARE BRIGHTLY LIGHTED ON ONE SIDE
This Symbol often shows a positive situation or a nature that knows how to find ways out of situations by creating creative solutions. Don’t become too concerned with one side of issues in the material world, even if you feel boxed in with no way out. Don’t have all your eggs in one basket. You have the ability to simply look around with a more objective eye and apply simple, active solutions – there are always waysout of dilemmas. Look for the light and head towards it. Refusal to surrender to frustrations. Thinking outside the square. Illuminated solutions. Understanding the borders of one’s activities. Looking for stability. A strong discharge of energies.
The Caution: Surrendering, feeling trapped, seeing only one side of situations. Bouncing around. Wanting to escape tight situations. Feeling locked in or boxed in.
The Sun is on Aries 5: A WHITE TRIANGLE IS SEEN; IT HAS GOLDEN WINGS
This can be a time when we feel that we need to rise above the gross, the problematic, the old, the outworn. We can feel the need to ascend situations that no longer could, or should, have out involvement. We can use the power of our will to let go of the petty…. to find something transcendent to occupy ourselves with, possibly to distract ourselves, or, to find a focus that is ascended, at least in some measure.
This Symbol shows the ability to be able to lift yourself above the ordinary, using your natural gifts to find a new perspective, an uplifted view; to expand your awareness. This can picture an eagerness for spiritual integration or a capacity to escape from reality. Try to ground the vision, but allow yourself the free flight of vision. There is often a strong spiritual nature that expresses itself through purity of thought and insight.
Inspiration and zeal. Feeling elevated and inspired through spiritual or creative efforts. Flying to a greater perspective. Self transcendence. Angels and their messages.
The Caution: Not noticing your down-to-earth needs or those around you. Escapism. Forgetting about the needs and desires of the body. Losing the plot.
Mars is on Aries 25: A DOUBLE PROMISE REVEALS ITS INNER AND OUTER MEANINGS
Mars on this degree can have us wondering if we’re going nuts – this or that? This or that? Perhaps neither? Also, it can denote getting upset about things that aren’t worth it. Is there enough ‘promise’ of something worthwhile in what’s going on or not?
This Symbol shows that what at first appears to be may reveal itself to actually be something else. Simple promises can be more complicated than first thought. The rational and emotional responses can conflict with each other; one wants something, the other wants something else. However, this can be the way to really view things, from an inner and outer perspective. Also indicates the choice that arises – of the heart and of social obligation. Realize the implications of expectations and promises.
There may be a reward involved. Promises. Something that may look good on the outside, but have a different meaning on the inside. Look back to pledges made.
The Caution: Fickleness, insincerity and two-facedness in human relationships. Promising more than can be delivered. Not turning up. Having hidden agendas.
The Sabian Symbol for the Sun is Aries 3: A CAMEO SHOWS THE PROFILE OF A PERSON THAT SUGGESTS THE OUTLINE OF THEIR COUNTRY
This Symbol asks things such as: How do you fit in? How do you see yourself fitting in to the scheme of things? What and where are you aiming for?
This Symbol shows that there is a need for an objective awareness of how you and your life fits into the larger picture. You may find you have a more important role than you previously thought. Imprint your mark on life by becoming a shining example of your country, tradition, beliefs or culture. However, try not to become too identified with externals or seeking recognition from the people around you. This degree shows that it’s important to a strong sense of who you are and your role in the world. If you are too identified with external realities you may find that your internal world is neglected. Finding a balance between inner and outer is the goal.
Observing one’s limitations. Living a trans personal life. Allegiances of creed, religion, race, country. Nationhood, brotherhood. Finding one’s place in the world.
The Caution: Blindly following the dogma of government or officials. Stereotyping one’s self or others by what one has achieved or how much people earn, own or owe.
What’s the post-eclipse feeling that’s hanging in the air? There are so many mixed feelings and realizations – what’s going on for you? This Daily Rave may reveal why you’re feeling the way you are, or, it may help you move forward after this amazing moment in time that was the eclipse and is the equinox and always is a super new Moon.
If you would like a reading, buy a book, or, donate to the website or the newsletter, you can do so here. I would so appreciate it!
There’s a lot to say about what’s going on with the Sabian Symbols now – it’s like the full-on energy of the eclipse and the new Moon (the effects of which are only just now starting to integrate) are now taking us into something of an anti climax… we may be feeling a little strange… the eclipse sounded like it held so much promise – but we are not ‘there’ yet! We are still growing into the possibilities. I will make a Daily Rave audio about it and post it here soon.
A few examples – Mars is now on Aries 23 – exactly conjunct Eris – A WOMAN IN PASTEL COLORS CARRYING A HEAVY AND VALUABLE BUT VEILED LOAD
This Symbol shows issues of going to a great deal of effort to conceal from others things that are very important. This could be heavy responsibilities that have been placed on you. You may feel that you have succeeded in shouldering these burdens without others knowing, but in fact it may be apparent to others in the way the burden of your secret is affecting your behavior. It may be necessary to share the load. Are you truly participating in life? Do you always put on a happy face regardless of what’s going on?
Privacy. Quiet determination to get on with the job. Carrying more than ones share, gratefully or grudgingly. Pregnancy. Doing overtime. Cheery attitudes.
The Caution: Trying to cover up distrust and greed. Keeping ones thoughts and emotions locked in can create dis-ease. Feeling unnoticed or unworthy or weak. Bad backs.
Meanwhile, Venus is on Taurus 5: A YOUTHFUL WIDOW, FRESH AND SOUL-CLEANSED FROM GRIEF, KNEELS AT AN OPEN GRAVE TO RECEIVE THE SECRET OF ETERNAL LIFE
This Symbol speaks of things from the past that sometimes block progress in the present or the future. Don’t let loss beckon you to give up and throw everything away. There must always be a time to grieve, but what is lost is lost and cannot be regained by losing yourself. Know when it’s time to fill in the grave and let go, whether it’s literally letting go of people who have passed away or have disappeared from your life in order to move on. Gather up your energies and move towards new objectives letting go of the old.
Letting go of relationships and things that no longer work. Purging the past. Gradual realization of the illusion of matter. The passage of grief. Redundancies.
The Caution: Wasting time staring at lost opportunities. Grudges and hard feelings that last much longer than they have to. Divorce and loss and the grief that can ensue.
Mercury is on Pisces 12: A SWORD, USED IN MANY BATTLES, IS NOW IN A MUSEUM
This Symbol shows the ability, or the need, to be able to know when to stop battling in life, when to lay down one’s “Sword” and take up a higher position that reflects a more intelligent or spiritual way of being in the world. Sometimes, when reminded of the battles of the past, we are influenced towards actions that ensure peace. We are uplifted by the symbolic memory of past deeds of valor, although the stings of defeat may also be part of the story. You may find yourself faced with the choice of fighting or reasoning which is confused by your lack of training or experience in the ways of “Battle”. Don’t go down with the ship. It helps to lay down one’s ‘sword’ – not in order to surrender, but to stop the ‘warring’
Will power. Martial arts. Putting aside vengeance and revenge. History. Hanging up one’s sword. Trophies from the past. The Spear of Destiny. Retirement. Words as swords.
The Caution: Lack of sensitivity. Pretense of one’s abilities. Falling on one’s sword from defeat. Sexual impotence. Domestic violence. Giving up. Grudges. Wanting to go into “Battle”.
That’s a lot to carry – but remember, the Sun is just now going into Aries – it’s the beginning of the new… but, it seems that we have work to do (again and still) of letting go of the past… The Sun is on Aries 1: A WOMAN HAS RISEN OUT OF THE OCEAN, A SEAL IS EMBRACING HER
This degree is the beginning of the zodiac where the old gets left behind. New understanding and awareness is coming to light. Something new is emerging and it needs to be welcomed and nurtured. This is the beginning of a whole new impulse, creative and responsive. There’s an emergence of a whole new potentiality. Resist looking back to outgrown and unsatisfactory conditions in your life as they can pull you back to old and unrewarding ways of being. This is also about finding your voice and your feet. It’s about conscious individuation and the need to forge into new worlds with a new way of being.
Beginnings. Emergence of the feminine into concrete manifestation. Cycles beginning. The beginning of spring. Confidence in a whole new arena of being. Shedding old skins.
The Caution: Using the masculine drive to overshadow the emotions. Refusing to move into a new state of being because one is held back by previous life conditions.
The Sun is on Pisces 29: LIGHT BREAKING INTO MANY COLORS AS IT PASSES THROUGH A PRISM
Is there a feeling of the need for analysing situations – taking events, people, whatever, apart and checking them out – seeing what is making up the sum of the parts. This degree can have us staring into a prism, into a crystal, a situation, a person, an event, and getting a little lost in it all. It can be good, though, to take a good long look at things – even to take a short, incisive look into what’s going on as answers can seemingly come out of nowhere.
This Symbol shows the ability, or the need, to be able to analyze things, to consider and draw conclusions from available data, to be perceptive of colors, light refraction or reflection, auras and light. You probably have the ability to break situations down into the simplest components in order to see the full picture. This can and often does lead to a greater understanding of the relationship between the whole and the many parts. Just be careful not to overanalyze, thereby losing the joy that’s inherent in the simplicities of life. Taking a single vision and turning it into many individual streams can be rewarding, but it can also confuse and distract.
Spectrum analysis. Color and crystal healing. Rainbows. Light refraction. Considering many facets of a situation. Optics. Sight. Telescopes. Microscopes. Auras. Copying ideas.
The Caution: Locked in to a set of parameters. Over analyzing things. Being blinded by ambition. Diffracted personalities. Mirages. Using instruments yet not seeing things as they are.
