The Moon’s North Node On Libra 9: Three Old Masters In An Art Gallery
The Moon’s north node is on Libra 9: THREE OLD MASTERS HANGING IN A SPECIAL ROOM IN AN ART GALLERY, SOMETIMES THEY SEEM TO SPEAK TO EACH OTHER
I love this degree – it is the degree of Marc Edmund Jones’ Sun (MEJ was the genius behind the Sabian Symbols – Elsie Wheeler was the seer, MEJ was the one who dreamed up ‘the experiment’). So, it is ME Jones’ Sun and he brought forward the Sabian Symbols. It is my Midheaven… I so see this degree reflected in the Sabian Symbols… and, my contribution to the Symbols has been to see how the degrees before and after each Symbol ‘work together’… I see that the Symbols ‘speak to each other’ – they speak to me. They speak to me through symbolism, which is a kind of art.
What is your art? What are you bringing forth in the way of art? There are many ways to make art – we all do it in our own way.
This Symbol can show the idea of the lonely artist who takes refuge in their art… the Karmic Condition of this degree is Libra 8: A Blazing Fireplace In A Deserted Home... of course not always, but often, the artist finds themselves alone with their art, alone with their impressions and ideas, wants and desires. Sometimes, their art can take them away from family, from their usual homelife – sometimes, their art can have them focusing on their objectives to the point of personal sacrifice. They have to find that ‘blazing fireplace’ somewhere deep within their souls, within their art. Sometimes, not always of course, art can have those who practice it not making enough money to easily survive… the blazing fireplace can stand mute without the fuel…
This Symbol speaks of beauty, art and wisdom. An ‘Art Gallery’ brings treasures from our culture, our world and the world around us. Time often doesn’t seem to exist in this realm – all is timeless. This Symbol can show speaking to others about abstract concepts, art and culture, often on a higher level. Quiet contemplation of art, especially if people aren’t around to distract, can bring rewards on many levels. Everyday chatter that doesn’t go deep or explore life’s beauties can be useless and mundane but communicating on a deeper, more creative and spiritual level brings interesting insights and answers.
Truth in images. Intuitive vision. Reverence for art and form. Images bringing messages. Art collections. Photographs. The art of placement. Clairvoyant messages. Portraits.
The Caution: Undue reliance on old values. Importance placed on appearance instead of substance. Art’s rarefied atmosphere that excludes others as unworthy or uneducated.
