The Upcoming New Moon in Sagittarius: Reunions And Reruns

Military Brass BandI like to reminisce with people I don’t know. Steven Wright

Great perils have this beauty, that they bring to light the fraternity of strangers. Victor Hugo

Forsake not an old friend, for the new is not comparable unto him. A new friend is as new wine: when it is old thou shalt drink it with pleasure. Ecclesiasticus

There is no stronger bond of friendship than a mutual enemy. Frankfort Moore

The so-called lessons of history are for the most part the rationalizations of the victors. History is written by the survivors. Max Lerner

Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it. George Santayana

When the days of rejoicing are over, When the flags are stowed safely away, They will dream of another wild ‘War to End Wars’, And another wild Armistice day. Robert Graves

November’s Sagittarius new Moon occurs on November 22 in Australia and November 21 in the United States. This new Moon has a particularly ‘martial’ or ‘military’ feel to it, with the Sun, the Moon, Mercury, Saturn and Uranus all having this tone or flavor. Also, the degrees that follow for some of the other planets, such as Mars and Neptune, also have military or martial tones to them. It is a very curious line-up of planets, but then there often is a theme of some sort that shines through – it is just that this is a very pointed theme. How we handle it may be a measure of our ability to stand strong with our belief in the goodness of life and that good things are unfolding – and exactly as they should be. Of course, many people are having a good time in their lives, but for those who are feeling rather tested or pushed, this could be a time of having to reconnect with one’s positive thoughts and feelings.

Mercury On The Telephone Linesmen Degree: Scorpio 14

Mercury is on Scorpio 14: TELEPHONE LINESMEN AT WORK INSTALLING NEW CONNECTIONS – what ‘new connections’ are you making? How are your lines of communication? Are you plugged-in to the people you want to be connected with?

TelephoneThis Symbol implies the ability, or the need, to be able to connect in with people or situations, sometimes with tools and equipment. This degree shows networking, along with the desire to talk to people or bring them together and improve communications. If people have been experiencing failure in fully expressing their thoughts, ideas or emotions, there is nothing to be achieved by just worrying about it; but rather do something to repair the lines of communication. Doing this can cause surprising new connections with people linking up, even from surprisingly isolated places. Sometimes expert advice and help must be called in; this degree often shows people who can do it.

The nervous system. The Internet. Linking people from all over. Reaching out to people. Acupuncture. Chatting. Networking. Mobile phones, emails, faxes, switchboards.

The Caution: Failing to repair communications. Being involved in others’ lives. Gossip. Being fickle. Things getting out of control. Crossed lines. Jammed switchboards.

The Sun And Saturn Together On The Making New Camp Degree: Scorpio 26

The Sun and Saturn are conjunct (together) on Scorpio 26 and the Sabian Symbol is: INDIANS MAKING CAMP IN NEW TERRITORY – in amongst other manifestations, it’s interesting to see the immigration debate happening in the USA and other places.

Indians Making Camp In New TerritoryThis Symbol implies being able to, or having to, settle into “New Territory”. Once a new place has been found, there is the need to acclimatize, adjust quickly and settle in. This new territory can be manifested in a physical, emotional or spiritual framework. Whichever it is, you need to feel at home in an inner and outer sense. You may feel a creeping sense of unease if you find it hard to relax in the new environment or that the rug may be pulled from under your feet. You may also be someone who moves often in life, sometimes before you were able to get a sense of belonging or having friends. However, there is likely to be a pioneering or venturing spirit.

Settling in. Walk-ins. Concerns with territory. Immigration. Tents. Shelter. Cohabitation. Setting up camp. Squatters. Respecting boundaries. Reservations. Migration. Renting.

The Caution: Moving into or invading people’s territory. Putting up with things when one should move. Barging in. Having to compromise living space. Arriving unannounced.

Mercury And Pallas Athena Together On Scorpio 13: The Scientist Degree

Mercury and Pallas Athena are conjunct (together) on the same degree – Scorpio 13: AN INVENTOR PERFORMS A LABORATORY EXPERIMENT

Einstein from left and rightWhat ‘experiments’, what changes in tactic, what can you do differently to get a better result?

This Symbol shows the ability, or the necessity, of being able to take risks or to be an explorer or someone who does things rather differently than most people. It’s your job to look for creative solutions and work with them. When things are just not working, you probably need to try different combinations and different possibilities in order to have the desired result. Being willing to go out on a limb can result in all kinds of unexpected results, some wonderfully rewarding, but some, if not well enough considered, could end up blowing up in your face. By persevering, you will not only find solution to complex situations, but also learn a lot from any errors you make along the way.

Creating one’s vision. Being prepared to risk failure. Taking calculated risks. Looking for answers. Going outside the square. The thrill of the unknown, untested and untried.

The Caution: Outcomes obscured by pointless goals. Making things up. Being one-eyed and focused to the exclusion of all else. Ignoring warning signs. Always pushing boundaries.

The Sun Is On The X-Ray Photograph Degree: Scorpio 25

The Sabian Symbol for the Sun is Scorpio 25: AN X RAY PHOTOGRAPH HELPS WITH THE DIAGNOSIS

X-RayThis Symbol shows the ability, or the need, to be able see into areas or realms that others generally don’t even take any notice of. You may find yourself looking for a deeper understanding of situations and you need to peel away the layers in order to get to the truth of the matter. You may need to employ both the emotions and the intellect. Ask yourself: what do you want to find and what is being done to reveal the structure or the nitty gritty of situations? Looking inside for clues. Being able to see through layers into the reality of things helps you to be able to make a “Diagnosis” – dia which means “by”, and gnosis which means “knowledge”

Penetrating insight. Having the eyes and the intuition to see. Evaluations. Photographs. Radiation. X-ray vision. Connecting the dots. Finding causes. Insight and revelations.

The Caution: Disregarding the truth. Invading people’s mental, physical or psychic space. Being intense and meaningful. Not knowing when to relax. Undressing others.

The Sabian Symbol For The Sun – Scorpio 24: Crowds Coming Down The Mountain To Listen

The Sabian Symbol for the Sun today is Scorpio 24: Crowds Coming Down The Mountain To Listen To One Inspired Man…. although obviously not confined to the idea of the president of the US, this degree Symbol certainly smacks of that office – so many listen to what the president has to say (for good or for ill) – and here in Australia at the moment, we have not only the president of the US, but also the leaders from countries all over the world for the G20 meeting in Brisbane.

On a more local level for us mere mortals ( ) – this Symbol can show the need, the desire or the possibility of listening or taking note of messages from ‘inspired individuals’, which, of course, can indicate messages coming from you – your inspired being. Here in Australia, on this windy day in Australia, I’m listening to a lecture by Wayne Dyer… and I have received some very interesting messages that are very very timely… I love how this stuff works…

Scorpio 24: CROWDS COMING DOWN THE MOUNTAIN TO LISTEN TO ONE INSPIRED MANCrowds Coming Down The Mountain

This Symbol implies having a message or the voice that others flock to in order to listen. Whether you are the “One Inspired Person”, or someone in the audience, you may feel that you have had some wonderful realizations after hearing inspired messages, from within yourself or from an external source, and now you need to bring these lessons or understandings down to an everyday level in order to integrate them into everyday life. People will have many different responses to the messages being given. Not all will be responsive, but the message will resonate with those that are meant to hear it. What will be done with this new information and how far will it spread?

Power to sway the feelings and thoughts of many. Having a large audience. Holding the floor. Gurus. Lectures and talks. Best sellers. Tapes recordings. The Jesus story. Idolatry.

The Caution: Naiveté, gullibility Feeling like someone else holds all the answers. Wanting everyone to listen regardless of their input or needs. Demanding centre stage.

The Sun On A Moving Into A Higher State Of Conscious Degree: Scorpio 23

I just love how life shows me the Sabian Symbols, sometimes in rather obscure ways…. I saw this graphic on Facebook this morning, right when the Sun is on Scorpio 23 – A Rabbit Metamorphosed Into A Nature Spirit. – how are you traveling with this idea? Metamorphosis anyone?

Scorpio 23: A RABBIT METAMORPHOSED INTO A FAIRY (NATURE SPIRIT)

A Rabbit Metamorphosed Into A Nature SpiritThis Symbol shows ascension or evolution to higher states of being. You may find your self, at times during your life, having a transformative realization that will take your focus away from the baser, animal instincts, to a more evolved, higher spiritual perception. This can lead to having higher codes of living; operating on elevated planes of being. Coming to terms with one’s vital energies can free you up to find a higher state of being. This can feel like a “Metamorphosis” – like you’re morphing into someone different, perhaps someone quite unique from others. Ascension in consciousness is likely to be happening – enjoy the ride!

Revelation of hidden talents. Moving into a whole new level of existence and being. Vegetarianism. Elementals. Nature spirits and fairies. Evolution. Complete changes.

The Caution: Being dissatisfied with one’s transformation. Feeling ineffective or impotent. One’s sexual power taken away. Feeling ‘neutered’. Neglecting body.

Venus on Scorpio 27: The Military Brass Band

Venus is on Scorpio 27: A MILITARY BAND MARCHES NOISILY ON THROUGH THE CITY STREETS

Military Brass BandIn Australia, we are gearing up for the G20 Meeting this weekend. Obama and Putin and other world leaders are in Australia and no doubt there’s a lot of banging of drums…

This Symbol shows the need for occasionally making a show for society to remind ourselves of our successes and achievements, whether they are collective or personal achievements. The “Military Band” can make an enormous amount of noise as it “Marches Noisily”, but sometimes we need to be awoken or reminded of the cohesion that a military band can show. Likewise, this degree can show a personality that likes to bang its own drum or to make a big noise for the establishment. As long as the audience is ok with the parade through their environment, one can contain the reaction from others. Sometimes, though, people get annoyed by people banging their drums a little too loudly.

Noisy announcements. Making music to rouse people from complacency. Demanding attention. Trumpeting one’s agenda. Marching in time. The blast of the media. Drums.

The Caution: A lot of volume that’s too pompous. The message getting lost in the noise and fanfare. Demanding to be heard. Propaganda. Threats to peace. Banging one’s drum.

Making Camp In New Territory: Saturn on Scorpio 26

The Sabian Symbol for Saturn is Scorpio 26: INDIANS MAKING CAMP IN NEW TERRITORY

The question with Saturn here can be: are you moving into ‘new territory’? Are you prepared for the new conditions this might bring? Are you wanting a change? Are people barging in on you, perhaps?Indians Making Camp In New Territory

This Symbol implies being able to, or having to, settle into “New Territory”. Once a new place has been found, there is the need to acclimatize, adjust quickly and settle in. This new territory can be manifested in a physical, emotional or spiritual framework. Whichever it is, you need to feel at home in an inner and outer sense. You may feel a creeping sense of unease if you find it hard to relax in the new environment or that the rug may be pulled from under your feet.

The Sun On The Hunters And The Hunted: Scorpio 22

The Sabian Symbol for the Sun today is Scorpio 22: HUNTERS PROTECTED BY HEAVY CLOTHING ARE SHOOTING WILD DUCKS

There are some out there in society who take advantage of the smaller, less defended, amongst us. Those who don’t have the money, the position, the ‘camouflage’ that others perhaps have. A case in point is a CEO who fires the workers while taking a bigger pay rise – perhaps taking millions and millions of dollars. This Symbol can also show the desire to protect those that can’t protect themselves. Duck Hunting

This Symbol implies the need for protection of those who are innocent or younger, smaller, or not able to protect themselves. Being an advocate for others, you can shield them from the more harmful elements of society. You may, at times, feel that you are the one that needs to be protected or given shelter or in need of people declaring a ceasefire and amnesty so people can come out into the open and not be afraid to show their true selves. Of course, there is a need for an outlet for aggressive emotions every now and then. Doing so in groups gives this outlet, such as “Shooting Wild Ducks” some sense of acceptability. However, picking on those that are undefended or smaller is really not right, no matter what the terms.

Satiating one’s aggressive desires. Being able to hit the mark. Terrorism in its many forms. Camouflage. The armed forces. Armaments. Hunting for meat or trophies.

The Caution: Taking unfair advantage of the innocent. Exploitation. Hormones running rampant. Bullying behavior. Polluting nature. Shooting people down. Nowhere to hide.
