Drama and intrigue is in the air as the cold winter winds blow with Chiron and Neptune in Pisces as they are exchanging glances with Ceres in Cancer, while Mercury Retrograde is in Sagittarius. The tragedies and the schemes being played out by the aspects in the night sky is being reflected and mirrored within our own conscience. Solar eclipses are extra powerful New Moons, signaling a time of major endings and the first stages of major beginnings. On November 13th 2012 is not only a super moon, indicating its closeness to the earth and at the same time, a partial solar eclipse at 21 Scorpio 56 at 3:09 pm PST is stressing the passion for candidness. Our own sense of right and wrong is demanding us to be honest with ourselves and to have the integrity to step up to the plate when called on. During this period of time the energies of the moon exposes what we think is our dark side, our secret passions, our fears, our inabilities to cope and the trepidation of not accomplishing and completing one’s destiny. Our higher inner voices with the push from the influences of the planets are telling us, to shut up or put up.
“The Sabian symbol for the 22nd degree of Scorpio is taken from “The Sabian Symbols in Astrology by Marc Edmund Jones”, and what follows are my comments.
Scorpio 22 Hunters starting out for ducks This is a symbol of the sim0licity of self-expression and the straightforward honesty of desire which men tend to exhibit from birth in nearly every realm of normal or everyday activity, and of the average individual’s need for genuine psychological elbow-room in his dealing with world about him. Here is freedom of action willy-nilly, as marked in the frequent determination of the human spirit to have this by one means if not by another. The keyword is enterprise. When positive, the degree is a complete lack of personal frustration and a constant refinement of special and practical skills in the approach to daily problems, and when negative, a callous exploitation of all life.
This symbol speaks to us of our agenda, our directness and our ability to get to the point whether it is politically correct or not. It confirms our mission and our strong sense of purpose. At the same time it subtly implies a lack of restriction, a lack of freedom and a lack of compassion. This symbol connects well with the aspects in the night sky as it suggests a need to get to the root of the matter, if we are to have a solution to any problem. It is asking us to go within and candidly review who we are and where we are going. This is the time to clean our minds of clutter, get rid of old hurts and throw out the dark secrets. We need to have more transparency, so we can begin to comprehend where we are really coming from and to where we really are going. With Mercury in retrograde our meditations during this period will surprise us with insights that will amaze us. As the energies of an eclipse is powerful, may we become more aware and more appreciative of it, and may we heed the message it is sending to us with the passion we have within us.
