Full Moon March 19th in Virgo
In this very busy world we live in, as we approach each New and Full Moon period, it gives us the opportunity to contemplate where we have been and what direction we should take in the future. Several important factors mark the Full Moon at 28 Virgo 27 occurring at 11:10 a.m. PDT on March 19th2011 as a turning and pivoting point of time for the changes that has been indicated by the aspects of the planets in the last few years. This is the second of six Super Moons this year which indicates that it is at its closes distance to the Earth. Another factor is that this Full Moon is square the nodes which peaks one day before the vernal equinox on March 20th at 4:21 p.m. PDT which adds to its key significance in the final outcome of anything accomplished at this time.
The ancients considered the equinoxes as important spiritual days to perform rituals to be in good communications and relationships with their Gods. With Mercury conjunct Jupiter in Aries opposition to Saturn in Libra and the equinox in close proximity, it is reminding us that our future is a reflection and outcome of our past and shadowy sides of our nature. In that case we need to work with, amend, revise or change our thinking of the past and present, to make the wishes and hopes, a reality in the future. This moon period is allowing our inner spiritual psyche to realize that our future is within the realms of our creative mind and emotions.
“The Sabian symbol for the Moon in 29 degrees of Virgo and for the Sun in 29 degrees of Pisces is taken from “The Sabian Symbols in Astrology by Marc Edmund Jones”, and what follows are my comments.
Virgo 29 A man gaining secret knowledge from a paper he is reading This us a symbol of the world’s conservatism, and of the refusal of nature to surrender any part of her heritage unnecessarily. The fixity of idea by which human beings preserve their culture is also a protection for all hidden wisdom and unsuspected ways of knowing, since the deeper awareness is merely a broader reference of a further application of stabilities which constitute a universe at large. The possibilities of greater experience lie in embryo throughout the lesser. The keyword is discovery. When positive, the degree is imagination brought to the full of its powers through conscious effort, and when negative, loss of common sense in supposition.
Pisces 29 A prism This is a symbol of the world’s stability and of the refusal of nature to change any aspect of herself unnecessarily. The reliability of normal process and the consistency of true intelligence are the foundation of a common knowledge which man has been expanding through the centuries, and his continuance of the control he has gained over his environment is promise of much more wonderful achievement ahead. He is able to take any convenient facet of the reality at his hand and fashion it into an effective instrument for a measure of the whole potential. The keyword isvalidation. When positive, the degree is exceptional accomplishment through judgment of unusual accuracy, and when negative, fatuous pride of intellect.
These two Sabian symbols remind us that the Universe has established laws, that if we work with them, the effect will be known. When we seek these secrets and mysteries with sincerity and use them wisely, the world is at our finger tips. As the light breaks into many rows of color like the rainbow as it passes through a prism. It never changes its pattern, no matter how many times the light flows though it. So too, are the laws of the Universe. That is why if we wish to change our past circumstances, we need to consciously and subconsciously change our thinking. Our preoccupation of any thought will create the very thing we are thinking about. If we wish to create a new and better world, we need to realize that our future is the outcome of our past and present. If we are unhappy with what we see, we need to change our thinking and create a new path of thinking, to create a more hopeful and successful future.
