The full Moon celebrates the Winter Solstice on Saturday, December 22.  Both Luminaries, Sun and Moon are at 0 degree  of Capricorn and Cancer, constellations which mark the entry into winter and summer.   This is a moment when we can hear the Music of the Spheres.  It is a moment of absolute stillness, a chance to begin anew in a place of cosmic attunement!

The approach to the dark winter solstice always feels dangerous and death ridden.  But there is an opportunity for healing at this moment.  The position of Mars and Chiron as they relate to the Sun and Moon speaks of healing, finding a doctor within.    What can be done to lighten the mood?  Mars says: party like crazy, go to concerts, sing and feast!  Chiron recommends embracing all the colors of your crystal, knowing how important is your ray of light in this spectrum.   Leave nothing of yourself behind in the cold.

There’s a strong suggestion of surprise in this chart as Uranus, the Wild One shakes Sun and Moon with fiery energy.  The Sabian Symbol for the position of Uranus is Attunement to cosmic order.  ‘Listen to Your Inner Voice!’ he says from his perch in Aries.    Look into the crystal, a reminder of all the frequencies of colors which must go into a ray of pure white light. To hear the Inner Voice, we have to trust our own light, our own music!

Venus and Neptune are in a harmonious trine of Water signs.  They play the background music for this Sun Moon dance.  What will the entry of the Moon into Cancer (more Water),  mean for the  planets of love?   Perhaps Venus and Neptune  will tune us to the cosmic order.  Cosmic music, like the light of the crystal, requires each vibration of sound.

A musical theme seems right for a full Moon at the season when we sing or hear music the most.   The Sabian Symbol for Uranus continues with the theme of ‘cosmic attunement.’  ‘If you are ready to enter into new possibilities of action, you must also learn the harmonic principles in operation! The Music of the Spheres.’    All we are asked to do is to stop a moment to feel the Sun’s journey and the full Moon’s sweet voice!

The celebration of the journey of the Sun and Moon, gives depth and comfort to every person, no matter who they are, where they live.  Each voice in praise of the Earth and Sky are more powerful than all the forces of destruction and despair!   The bird of this season is the Wren, smallest of all, with the sweetest note!   The old song says: ‘Who sees the Wren sees God.’  Our song is never too small to move hearts and to brighten the dark season.

Owl

 

At night my heart beats
in the small cave of my breast.

In day, the heart takes off
and might become an owl.

My heart might be the owl
I saw fly from tree to tree.

It might become your heart,
and beat in your dark cave.

Or the owl, might find
a better place to land.

A lake with a tree,
where the forest does not end.

Crystal Heart

 

Once the heart opens,

she becomes awake, a crystal,

a crystal bowl of reception.

 

Once a ball of volcanic stone,

now she is a melon exposed,

crystal walls, a geode of pulp.

 

Neither stone, nor water

she listens, hears the code

in her exposed walls of blood.

An Electrical Storm‘ is the Sabian Symbol for the degree of the full Moon in Taurus.  And, to make sure we  feel this electrical energy, the planet Uranus,  full of the shock value of lightning, sits within one degree of the Moon.   Yet, here’s the strange part: the Sabian Symbol for Uranus is:  ‘A Clear Mountain Stream.’   It seems as if the Moon and Uranus have swapped roles! Our mother the Moon wants to shake us up, the change maker, Uranus wants us to remember our source!

The Moon loves to be in the sign of Taurus.  Taurus is an Earth sign, where the Moon showers her love  upon this planet which she watches over.  Perhaps she remembers when the Earth was in the sign of Taurus, about 5000 years ago, a time of deep reverence for the feminine, reflected in the art of the time, and stored somewhere in our modern consciousness.

The two Sabian Symbols tell us an interesting story.  ‘A Clear Mountain Stream‘ is about  ‘our pure, uncontaminated source.’  When we can feel that source in ourself, we rejoice in our deepest, most spontaneous and unnamed and untamed nature.  Potential to accomplish whatever our ‘work’ may be is available.   This is the gift of Uranus to this full Moon.  And the full Moon reflects the electrical energy held in Uranus, ‘An Electrical Storm’!   Our deepest and purest  manifestation is electrified by this moment on Wednesday.  Here’s a way to connect and electrify our true nature, as a species and as individuals.

And the degree of the Sun, adds a nostalgic note to this full Moon.  His Sabian Symbol: ‘A Delicate Bottle of Perfume Lies Broken, Releasing its Fragrance.’  This romantic touch may be from the proximity of Venus to the Sun.   The two of them make a strange balance to the Moon/Uranus combination of electrified soul source!  Sense of smell and taste, music, touch, all have a way of recalling a memory from the past, and stirring deep feelings of pain or nostalgia.  Like the broken bottle, we open and release poignant feelings only when we are least expecting them.  At death or at extreme moments of joy and pain, our soul, like the fragrance from the broken perfume bottle is released from its ‘delicate bottle.’

And that companion to the Sun, Venus, in the sign of Scorpio, presents a very contrary image to the delicate symbol of a broken perfume bottle, releasing  fragrance.   Instead Venus is symbolized as: ‘A Massive Rocky Shore Resists the Pounding of the Sea‘. There is a theme of surrender and resistance to change in these two symbols.  It feel as if we are challenged by the Moon and Uranus to feel and embrace the energy of electrical change of this time, and yet we struggle with the pain and resistance we feel to change.

To deepen the powerful thrust of this time Sun and Moon are locked in a perfect square to the Lunar Nodes, which hold the key to where we have been and where we need to travel.   The North Node in Leo, urges us on to self expression, courage, and battle with the ego.  Aquarius reminds us we are part of a community, and have a responsibility to create a livable future.

full Moon in Taurus 2018

 

Last night I watched a film about the destruction of the land for two indigenous people, in Papua New Guinea and northern Canada.  I came away deeply depressed by the enormous forces of destruction which support my comfortable life style, fills my gas tank and powers my cell phone.    What is my power to resist the destruction of the natural world, while embracing the change, which is: ‘the cosmic power able to transform all the implications of natural existence.’   This seems to be the conundrum, and the message of the full Moon in Taurus, which takes place Wednesday, October 24, at 12:45 EDT

The Sabian Symbols are verbal images for each degree of the zodiac.  They were created by a psychic, Laura Wheeler and an astrologer and philosopher, Marc Edmund Jones.  The astrologer and composer, Dane Rudhyar edited and polished them in his book: The Astrology of Personality.  They give me visual clues to the mysteries held in astrological charts.

The seed case must be broken,

cracked, perhaps by heat,

the fire of too much passion,

or the cold of no passion at all.

 

And then the seed must drown,

or swim in water, tears, rain, snow.

Seed swells in water,

and breaks the stiff case open.

 

Sun dries the seed till it bursts

with green arms and fingers.

Legs, feet, emerge like demons

the air and water take form.

 

Earth must swallow seed,

push against the green thrust,

and show it how to anchor

into the deep work of growth.
